  • Victoria And David Beckham Are Already At War With An Angry Neighbour

    Basically, it's one big barney about bloomin' air conditioning, with Posh and Becks spending an entire eighteen months preparing the plans to transform their £3.15million Victorian mansion in Holland Park into a luxury family home. The Mirror cites the neighbour as writing: "The council must identify our deep concerns about all adverse impacts on living conditions from noise, vibration, dirt, pollution and dust from construction and from associated traffic, in addition to concerns about impacts on drainage, on appearance and landscape, on structural stability, and on historic buildings. The Beckham family, which includes sixteen-year-old Brooklyn, twelve-year-old Romeo, ten-year-old Cruz, and three-year-old Harper, had their plans for "internal alterations at all levels" approved earlier this year and they are reportedly intending to totally reboot the house so that the finished project boasts six bedrooms, a playroom, and a cinema to name a few.

  • Tributes after Cynthia Lennon dies

    The surviving Beatles have paid tribute to John Lennon's first wife, Cynthia, who has died from cancer. Born Cynthia Powell, in Blackpool, she met Lennon at art school in Liverpool in 1957 and the couple married just before Beatlemania transformed her husband from a jobbing musician into one of the most famous men in the world. At the height of The Beatles' early success, she was kept so far in the background that many of Lennon's female fans were not even aware of her existence, and she stayed at home bringing up Julian while the Fab Four toured the world and topped the charts.
