Robert Pattinson & Dylan Penn
RPA TT Z
‘Who the ruddy heck’s Dylan Penn?’ we hear you shriek. Well, listen up: model Dylan, 22, is the daughter of Oscar winner Sean Penn (who you can read about across the page) and actress Robin Wright – and she’s the reported new squeeze of R-Pattz. Yes, it appears Rob, 27, has found love again a year after it first emerged that Kristen Stewart, 23, had cheated on him with married film director Rupert Sanders. Rob and Dylan were spotted at hot LA hangout The Viper Room on 7 September. Later that night, they headed out for drinks and a bite to eat at the nearby Chateau Marmont and then to a party at his house. ‘They went into his kitchen and he put his arms around her,’ says a source. ‘Then he was kissing her neck.’ Ooh-er! Well, if it means we 100 per cent never have to endure any more off-on and off-again rumours about K-Stew and R-Pattz, we’re all for it!

Gotcha! Rob and Dylan got talking at The Viper Room
Dylan’s just the latest in a string of ladies to be linked to R-Pattz
They hooked up while shooting Twilight in 2008 – and four years of ‘are they, aren’t they’ ensued. Then in 2012, K-Stew was caught cheating. Despite a public apology and a brief reconciliation, they split in May.
Although she’s a friend of Kristen’s, Katy, 28, was recently linked to Rob. Awks! But the singer’s rubbished the rumours, revealing that she’d told Rob: ‘One of the things I’m most proud of is not sleeping with you.’ A strong woman… WorldMags.net
Rob was spotted ‘bonding’ with Sarah, 26, on the set of their movie Map To The Stars in July. Although a source said: ‘On paper they’d make a very cute couple,’ in the end it didn’t go anywhere. Bad luck, Sarah.

‘of course I’ll be at the bIrth!’ A
fter years of putting his private life on the small screen, Peter Andre recently announced plans to call it quits on his reality TV show. Instead, he’s vowed to be a hands-on dad when his baby with his girlfriend Emily MacDonagh arrives next year – and tells us he will be there at the birth. The singer was by the side of his ex-wife Katie Price, 35, when she
Dad-to-be Peter Andre on Emily, their baby, popping the question… and the in-laws!
delivered their two children Junior, eight, and Princess, six, by Caesarean section. But in an exclusive interview with Now, Pete, 40, says he can’t wait to be at his first natural birth. He adds that it’ll be a fresh start after an emotional nine months since he lost his brother Andrew to kidney cancer last December. ‘I’m more positive now and I can’t wait to be at the birth,’ Pete tells us. ‘It’ll be my first experience of a natural birth. It’s a bit difficult,
but there’s nothing more special than the birth of a child. ‘It was tough last year when you’re right in the middle of it. Grieving privately and publicly [for Andrew] was very difficult, but my brother Michael said to me: “You don’t get over it, you get on with it.” You just have to focus on something.’ Pete adds: ‘Good things have happened since we lost Andrew, with raising money for Cancer Research and with Emily. Once you’ve lost something it’s lost, but maybe this is like the circle of life. I’m very relaxed now.’
Last week, trainee doctor Emily, 23, was spotted showing off her mini bump as she left the couple’s Surrey home. She commutes from her home in Somerset to spend time with Pete most weekends. But when grilled about their future plans, Pete refuses to reveal if he’s ready to pop the question, saying: ‘I’ll let you know all in good time...’ Viewers of his ITV2 show My Life will next week see Pete return to Zanzibar, where he first realised his feelings for long-term friend Emily and even ‘married’ her in a fake wedding ceremony three months before their first date. Pete made an emotional return during a charity bike ride with Emily’s dad Dr Ruaraidh MacDonagh and the experience made him contemplate his relationship.
‘our families are very close’
Advice for Simon
Pete’s promise to be at Emily’s side in the delivery room comes after Simon Cowell last week laughed off the idea he’d hold girlfriend Lauren Silverman’s hand during labour. Pete chuckles: ‘Did Simon say he isn’t going to be at the birth of his child? It’s interesting because in the olden days guys weren’t allowed to be there. ‘Men can be at the birth now, but you can’t really argue with someone if they choose to play by Pete, pictured in the old school rules. 2006 with Simon I don’t agree with it, and Katie, doesn’t but it’s up to him.’ agree with ‘old

24 Sept ‘beauts’ emily shows off her mini bump
Pete says having his first child with emily will be like a fresh start
He says on the show: ‘The last time I was here they held a wedding ceremony for me and Emily. We weren’t even together, but my brain was thinking: “She’s so beauts!”’ We ask if he’d consider returning to Zanzibar to marry Emily for real, but Pete will only give us a cheeky smile. ‘I wouldn’t even think of commenting. Don’t you know me yet?’ he laughs.
‘We don’t hAve A bAby nAme yet’ Whatever the future holds, Pete says that his and Emily’s families are inseparable – and both sets of grandparents adore each other. Speaking to Now at Ashley Roberts’ clothing
launch at London’s Vanilla club, Pete says: ‘My family love Emily. Our families are very close – we’ve known each other for three years. Her dad operated on my kidney stones and he did my dad’s prostate, so we trust each other with our lives. ‘You want to do everything right, as the next time you’re on the operating table you might not be so lucky!’ One thing’s for certain, Pete’s kids can’t wait for another new sibling
to play with. ‘Everyone’s excited about the new baby,’ says Pete. ‘Junior and Princess are hugely excited, but they haven’t come up with a name. Well, not yet!’ Princess and Junior are very excited about emily’s baby

A quickie with… WorldMags.net Dermot’s bulge* X Factor fitties Joseph and Sam reveal all – We meet the real star of the show: Mr O’Leary’s, ahem, package
Dermie’s bulge gets a yes from us!
Hi, Dermot’s bulge. How are you finding this sudden attention? Well, I’ve actually been more than prominent on the show for the past six series. Honestly, I’m not sure how people have failed to spot me ’til now. We’ll take a look at some old tapes. We thought you were just taking inspiration from Olly Murs… Olly took inspiration from me! I was here first. If you really want to know, I think his bulge had a rummage through my section of the wardrobe department. Really? Yes. There’s only room for one pair of tight pants round here. And as the lovely Olly’s no longer presenting The Xtra Factor, it’s my time to shine. I’ll let you decide who has the best bulge out of the two of us, but it’s clearly me. That’s us told! So who are your bulge-spirations? Jon Hamm’s bulge is great – it has its own Tumblr accounts. Does anyone want to make an account for me? Oh, and Mark Wahlberg’s is great, too. They’re both Hollywood bulges, though – I’d like to think I’m the bulgiest bulge in the UK. OK, no need to get cocky…

KIM K: ‘I’ll get WorldMags.net
thin for Kanye
l Compromises her health by cutting out carbs l Ignores personal trainer Tracy Anderson’s advice as she’s desperate to lose weight fast
s if she hasn’t had enough scrutiny over her figure in the last year, poor Kim Kardashian’s feeling even more pressure to bounce back. Showing off her post-baby body last week, she looked amazing after ditching the baggy tops for a figure-hugging jumpsuit. But while Kim, 32, is putting on a brave face for the paps, insiders say she’s facing a ‘frustrating’ struggle to shift the final 10lb of baby weight – and is taking desperate measures that experts warn could put her health at risk. The reality star’s thought to have put on 3st 8lb while pregnant with baby North. But after working with celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson since the birth in June, she’s estimated to have lost an impressive 2st 12lb through healthy eating and cardio workouts. But now her weight loss has plateaued.
Kim’s been working with trainer Tracy
Insiders say that in the past fortnight Kim’s suddenly become desperate to lose the baby weight even faster – with friends convinced she’s feeling the pressure over joining baby daddy Kanye West (and his sexy dancers) on his world tour, which starts in two weeks. We’re told Kim – who was cruelly dubbed ‘a whale’ during her pregnancy – is now taking drastic diet measures by cutting out all carbs, including pasta, rice and potatoes, and even trying juicing detoxes. A family insider says: ‘Kim was eating healthily and doing a lot of postnatal yoga. But after seeing how slowly she’s losing weight, she’s become frustrated. She’s now working out on this high-tech elliptical machine [cross trainer] and loves doing aerobics.’ While Kanye, 36, is supporting her, he’s not putting any pressure on her. ‘He loves her curves and couldn’t care less if she ever gets her pre-baby figure back,’ Kim put on over our insider reveals. 3½st while ‘But Kim, of course, pregnant with doesn’t agree.

size 2 [a UK size 6] and has been telling people she’ll be back in swimsuit shape by Christmas.’ On 16 September, Tracy Anderson praised Kim for taking the weight loss slowly, saying: ‘She’s a gorgeous woman… It’s really important to carve out as much time as you can to reconnect to yourself and be realistic. It’s a tough journey back.’ Tracy hasn’t commented on Kim’s plans to accelerate her weight loss – but experts warn it could be bad for Kim to take such drastic Atkins-diet style measures. Personal trainer and fat loss specialist Lisa Cunningham says: ‘It’s never a good idea to completely cut out any food groups, particularly when you’ve just had a baby and your body’s recovering.
‘Kim should be focusing on a healthy, balanced diet incorporating low-GI carbs, smart fats and plenty of protein to get a balance of nutrients. It’s fine to have a weight loss goal as long as it doesn’t compromise your overall health.’ Another Kardashian family insider tells Now: ‘Kim loves Kanye so much that she wants to look good for him, especially with this tour coming up. She was hoping to join him on it but it’s still uncertain. Everyone thinks that’s why she’s in a sudden panic. ‘There’s been so much speculation about Kanye and his flirting. She knows it’s innocent, but no matter how many times Kanye tells her he loves her whatever she looks like, it’s made her determined to look her best.’ We can’t believe we’re saying this, but for once, Kim – listen to Kanye!

The self-conscious star has even taken to carrying oversized bags to hide her figure when she’s out and about. Friends say she’s so worried she’s even considering surgery to get her body back. Jess, 33, signed up with WeightWatchers shortly after the birth of her daughter Maxwell, now 17 months, having piled on 5st during the pregnancy. But she was just 1st 6lb off her goal weight when she discovered she was pregnant again with Ace. Last week it was announced that WeightWatchers has welcomed her back as a spokesmodel, so we’re sure she’ll back on track soon.

es, this really is former Big Brother star Chanelle Hayes, who confesses she’s now a size 14 and desperately battling with her weight. After gaining 3st this year, Chanelle tells Now her diet is out of control. ‘I can’t help myself. I only have to look at food and the weight goes on,’ Chanelle tells us. ‘If I walk past TGI Friday’s I need to be restrained so I don’t rush straight in! The worst thing is I’m still wearing my stretchy post-pregnancy eating pants –which isn’t a great look with a belly.’ Chanelle, 25 – who has a three-year-old son Blakely with her ex, footballer Matthew
Bates, 26 – is devastated by the weight gain because she successfully shed 3st last year. ‘At the start of the year I got down to 9½st through healthy eating and two hours in the gym every day,’ she tells us. ‘Then at the end of it I treated myself to a pizza and didn’t stop eating. I put on 3st again.’ Despite her unhappiness, Chanelle confesses she only has herself to blame. While a leg injury put paid to her regular gym visits and the side effects of her medication for polycystic ovaries have seen her jump from a size 8 to almost a size 14, she admits the main cause of her weight gain is snacking. ‘I’m the kind of person who sits in of an evening and eats out of boredom,’ she explains. ‘Eating’s become more of a habit than a necessity.’ Chanelle, who’s now dating Jade Goody’s widower Jack

onna Air’s always been on the teenyweeny side, but the TV host’s now devastated to find out that she’s being used as ‘thinspiration’ on sick pro-ana sites. When we told her pics of her trademark pins and slender figure were featured on these online communities, she told Now: ‘I’m alarmed… I didn’t realise I was on any sites and I certainly can’t take responsibility for something as huge as that. I hope these girls get the help they need.’ Donna, 34, maintains she’s a
healthy weight and a positive role model to Freya, her 10-year-old daughter with ex Damian Aspinall. ‘I’ve been a skinny girl my whole life,’ she tells us. ‘I just don’t sit down – I’m always on the go. It must be down to the genes.’ Pro-ana sites are used by anorexic girls to inspire them to lose more weight. But Donna, who’s been dating the Duchess of Cambridge’s brother James Middleton since earlier this year, says: ‘We have a healthy body image in my house and great appetites. It’d be hard for you to find a food I don’t love!’

Personal trainer Anna Reich, who attends the same Bikram yoga studio as Donna, tells us: ‘You can’t do an hour and a half of intensive yoga without being in good shape.

problems before he was allowed to fly home. The drama continued last week when the reality star was admitted to hospital for a last-minute op following her complicated birth. But you can’t keep the Pricey down. She’s already busy preparing for her new book, Love, Lipstick
And Lies, doing signings for her best-selling perfume Kissable and even launching a bridal range. The thrice-married star joked: ‘I think I’ve become a bit of an expert now.’ And she’s got a hot new look already, teasing fans by Tweeting: ‘New hair today, long and a different colour’. Watch this face!
Alex Reid backtracks: ‘I DID take drugs from
Alex Reid has said sorry to Katie’s son Harvey, after he admitted taking his life-saving human growth hormone. In Now last week, Alex claimed he’d taken Harvey’s drugs accidentally after Katie had placed them next to his medication in the fridge at her home. Alex even said: ‘I never expected Kate to place Harvey’s meds next to mine’ but he has now admitted to us this wasn’t the case. Last week we exclusively revealed how Katie had walked in on Alex, 38, using
Harvey’s life-saving medication – and how it had led to their marriage split. Alex originally told Now it was an accident and that he’d simply mixed up his medication with Harvey’s. However, Katie’s camp hit back, refuting his version of events and insisting that Harvey’s medication is always stored in a separate fridge. Her spokesperson said: ‘Katie and her family have been dealing with Harvey’s illnesses his
whole life. They don’t allow a situation to exist where his medicine could be contaminated by or confused with any drugs belonging to any third party.’ Human growth hormone is vital for Harvey, 11, as Prader-Willi syndrome causes low muscle tone, but it’s also popular with bodybuilders as it helps muscles build and recover quickly. When we went back to Alex, he confirmed that he HAD taken Harvey’s drugs
Alex: ÔIÕm WorldMags.net sorry, HarveyÕ
from his special medication fridge and admitted telling Katie he ‘could have been’ responsible for Harvey’s supply of the drug dwindling. Alex has now confessed to us, it was not Katie’s fault he took Harvey’s drugs and he was ‘confused’: ‘In hindsight I did keep my own drugs in a different fridge from Harvey’s. I said before my drugs had been placed next to his, but I realise now I’d remembered wrongly. I’m sorry, Harvey, I never meant any harm. It was my fault.’

‘Jacqui’s beautiful, I won’t hurt her!’
e’ve all been wondering: ‘Are they or aren’t they?’ And Now can exclusively reveal, yes they are! TOWIE hunk Dan Osborne has finally lifted the lid on his surprise new romance with EastEnders star Jacqueline Jossa, telling us: ‘She’s a beautiful girl – so funny, nice and
down-toearth. She comes out with me and my mates and we have such a laugh. I can’t knock her.’ Dan, 23, and Jacqui – as he calls her – have kept us guessing about what was going on between them

Ricky: ÔBosses wanted

Jessica and Ricky touch down in Vegas
What happens in Vegas usually stays in Vegas, but not if you’re on TOWIE… or the only couple on the show. Lovebirds Ricky Rayment, 23, and Jessica Wright, 28, found themselves saying: ‘We don’t’ instead of: ‘I do’ when TOWIE producers begged them to have a kitsch wedding in Las Vegas
for the special episodes. A defiant Ricky tells us: ‘They asked us, but there’s no way we’d do that – not unless we were really drunk! I’m not mugging off our relationship – I don’t want people to think it’s fake. It’s not. We’ll do things our way, not for a TV show.’ Respect, Ricky!
and she followed me back. Then we met up and got on really, really well. I’ve seen her every day since.’ Their romance comes after Jacqui ended her 18-month relationship with her EastEnders co-star Tony Discipline, 24, in July and Dan split from Lucy Mecklenburgh, 22, in June when he discovered his ex Megan, 20, was pregnant with his baby. However despite being smitten with Jacqui, who plays Lauren Branning in the soap, Dan claims she’d understand if he got up to no good during TOWIE’s trip to Las Vegas last week. Speaking before he left to film the two, hour-long specials, he said: ‘Jacqui knows I’m on the show –she’s not silly, she knows what the show’s about. ‘Whatever happens happens and we’re both on the same page. It’s not like I’m going to hurt anyone.’ Jacqui sounds a lot cooler than we’d be. Especially knowing his ex Lucy will be in a bikini…

Frequently voted ‘sexiest Man’ in soaps for his eastenders role as Dennis from 2003-2005, he also played a transvestite rent boy in City of Vice and a horny teacher in Plus one. In Downton, nigel, 40, is valet Mr green, who appears ‘incredibly charming’ but is set to have the characters clutching at their pearls! he admits: ‘I’ve snogged so many people on screen – I even snogged a man. I’ve only got animals left and then I’ve covered the whole gambit.’ Blimey! He regularly got his kit off as Dennis in Enders
r, Matthew who? Brace yourself, ladies, there’s a new lord in town: Viscount Anthony Gillingham, who seems to have his sights set on Lady Mary. And he’s played by Welsh hottie Tom Cullen. ‘Some people are going to love him and some people are going to hate him,’ says Tom, 28, of his character. If love scenes are on the cards, though, we’re sure he can handle them as he had his first-on screen kiss in 2011 Brit flick Weekend – with a bloke. Tom played a character called Russell, who spends the weekend with a guy he picks up. The film was made on a shoestring budget but when it premiered at the SXSW festival in Texas, extra screenings had to be put on due to popular demand. Tom also won the Most Promising Newcomer at the British Independent Film Awards for the role. ‘It was my first proper screen kiss, kissing a man,’ he says. ‘I haven’t kissed Lady Mary yet on screen so I don’t know which is more nerve-wracking.’ He also graced the cover of Attitude magazine last month, showing off his bare torso. Lucky Lady Mary!
Tom’s definitely got attitude!

DieT COke huNk ALeRT Diet Coke break! Yep, new Downton recruit Julian Ovenden was the hunk in the 2002 soft drinks ad who sidled up to the admissions desk at a university, where he enrols for French classes. Cue excitable admissions lady suggesting it’s a lesson in French kissing he’s actually after, to the strains of Lady Marmalade. Cheesy? Yes. Massively sexy? Definitely. The 37-year-old star is a bit of posh totty, having attended Eton College and Oxford University. And he’s no stranger to period dramas, having already appeared in Foyle’s War, The Forsyte Saga and Any Human Heart.
Now he’s set to heat things up on Downton as aristocrat Charles Blake, who visits with Evelyn Napier, played by fellow newcomer Brendan Patricks. In real life, though, it’s hands off, ladies – Julian’s married to opera singer Kate Royal, 34, who fell for him after spotting him in that Diet Coke ad. We’re well jel!

Wowsers! Gary, 26, is appearing in Downton as American jazz star Jack Ross, who takes Lady Rose on a romantic boat trip. As the first black character to appear in the series, he’s set to ignite some controversy among the 1920s aristocracy – and we’re promised the charming and charismatic singer will bring some ‘interesting twists to the drama’.

ome girls have all the luck! Not only is WAG Abbey Clancy currently being swept around the dancefloor by her gorgeous Strictly partner Aljaž Skorjanec, she’s also bagged herself a day job where she gets to feast her eyes on a fine
array of buff boys judging This Morning’s male model contest The Complete Package. But footballer husband Peter Crouch needn’t worry. When we join her on set for one of the challenges, she barely bats an eyelid when the lads start whipping off their tops. During a break in filming, we chat to the 27-year-old about perfect men, keeping sexy and Twitter trolls. Now’s Rosie Gizauskas with Abbey
You’ve got a great job judging these studs, Abbey! What are you looking for in the ideal man?
As well as an amazing body, the winner has to have something behind the eyes. I want him to connect with the audience and shine – I don’t want it to look too phoney and posed. I’m looking for someone who boys will want to be and who all the girls will fancy.

No, because they’re all healthy already. One of them’s a personal trainer, one of them’s a marine, one’s a football player – so they’re pretty fit lads.
You’ve been in a TV modelling competition [Britain’s Next Top Model], so what advice have you given the boys in this contest?

Have you ever retaliated to cruel comments on Twitter?
Abbey strutting her stuff on the catwalk
Only once, when someone said something about my daughter. They made some comment about me leaving her with a nanny all the time and I was furious because I don’t even have a nanny. I do everything myself. At the end of the day, it doesn’t bother me when people say things about me but when it involves my baby daughter, yes, I do find it hard to keep my mouth shut and I’ll let them have it.
My husband Peter. Or Leonardo DiCaprio – I’ve liked him ever since I was a little girl. You’re also competing in the new series of Strictly Come Dancing. What are you looking forward to most?
Well, my fitness levels are fairly horrendous. I usually don’t train or go to the gym. I’m strong but I’ve got absolutely no stamina. I tend to get out of breath easily. Getting my fitness levels up is one of the things that I’m looking forward to the most. I so want to tone up and feel good.
You’ve got a bod to die for. What’s your secret?
Well, I never really get a chance to sit down. I’m always working, I’m always busy and when I’m not working, I’m usually with my daughter. And I enjoy horse riding to keep fit. I think being married to an athlete also helps as we have nice, healthy foods and dinners a lot of the time. I try to look after Peter and I don’t want my little girl to eat junk, so we tend to eat well in the house. Sophia’s so heavy – she’s a big girl, she’s a little pudding – so just picking her up is like spending 10 hours in the gym!

What do you need from your dance partner Aljaž?
Personality is a major part – if you get on well with your coach, you’ll grow better as a dancer. I work better when I get praise. If someone shouts at me, I tend to shut down. I need encouragement, not to be shouted at. Would you say you’re competitive?
No. I’m the least competitive person there is. I’m the eldest of four, so I’ve grown up letting the little ones win every game. Obviously, I’d like to do well for myself and I’d like my daughter [Sophia, two] and family to be proud, but I wouldn’t say I’m going to kick everyone’s behind!
She’s judging The Complete Package on This Morning
You’re splashed across the papers a lot. Are you bothered by what you read about yourself?
Being in the public eye every day, getting comments like: ‘Oh, she’s got a fat roll this week,’ or: ‘She’s
too thin, too fat,’ is horrible. To be honest, I’ve been lucky with the press and people on Twitter. People are nice online. There are a couple of comments that aren’t, but I think if you’re on that type of thing you have to take it with a pinch of salt because you’re opening yourself up to people being able to say anything they want. It doesn’t bother me at all.
You’re absolutely gorgeous. But please tell us that you have bits of your body you aren’t happy with!

Well, I haven’t really had a plan with my career – I’ve just done whatever’s come my way and I’ve enjoyed it. But I think I’d like to go into acting and transform into someone who’s not me. With hunky partner Aljaž on Strictly

It’s a new season! But I never really know what to wear in autumn – it’s not quite cold enough to wrap up in your warmest winter woollies, yet the weather’s so changeable. Wardrobe wise, I think it’s definitely time to invest in some key transitional pieces to take you right through from now to next spring. Here’s my autumn fashion hotlist…
T BESR FO Y DA
I’m looking for ankle boots £95 topshop – something I can wear in the day and dress up for night. I wore the same ones all year round last year! I love these ones with T BESR a fat heel to FO T h wear with niG jeans or a £90 dress and a zara jacket. I like a stiletto heel for night.
I’ve just got this for my Corrie character. It isn’t Tina’s usual style, but I felt she needed a coat that’s a bit older looking. Plus, leather’s hot right now – I’d wear it myself, too!
You can’t go wrong with black opaque tights. They look feminine in winter. I tend to wear mine with boots.
My syle crus of the week… I sooo want this jumpsuit now! Kimberley Walsh has a great figure – her waist looks tiny here. And I think her dark lipstick is fab – it’s different and daring but it really suits her. She looks amazing.
Kim’s jumpsuit makes the most of her tiny waist

Brad had to give Maddox a fatherly chat
Ange goes berserk As MAddox Asks:
Angelina was stunned by the question
ngelina Jolie’s fiercely protective of her sixstrong brood – even banning them from Googling themselves and their parents’ names. So imagine her outrage when eldest son Maddox blindsided her with the ultimate awks question: ‘Who’s Jen?’ According to sources close to her partner Brad Pitt, Maddox, 12 – who Ange adopted three years before she met Brad – was on a friend’s phone reading an article about Jennifer Aniston when he saw references to his parents. ‘He went home and asked his mum: “Who’s Jen?”’ reveals the source. ‘Angie was stunned and her natural reaction was to run out of the room.’ Ange, 38, and Brad, 49, then had
a showdown over the best way to tell their kids about his ex, who Brad was still married to when they met in 2005. ‘Angie went beserk and said he was stupid not to have explained it all to the kids before they read about it. In the end, Brad was forced tell Maddox what happened,’ adds the source. Brad’s always said his romance with Ange didn’t begin until after he split with Jen, 44, but it caused a big showbiz scandal. He’s previously revealed about the kids Maddox, Pax, nine, Zahara, eight, Shiloh, seven, and five-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox: ‘On all their computers we had our names blocked. They can’t Google their mom and dad.’ Should’ve done that to their mates’ machines, too, guys…

No, not really. Growing up I was never conscious of it, but I am now I’m doing what I do. At school I was quite skinny, so ideally I would like to have been a bit bigger and stronger. But I didn’t lose any sleep over it. I can imagine it’s probably a bit harder for girls growing up with the pressures of having to look a certain way. So how do you keep your bod looking so fine?
I do all sorts of stuff – weight training, interval training, running, playing sports with friends, touch rugby… Danny  and I play a lot of football together and when we’re on tour we go to the gym together. Dougie [Poynter, 25] is quite a healthy guy. Actually, we’re all healthy boys, although when we first lived together we used to eat

I’m lucky because I haven’t experienced those trolls. I’m not really on Facebook or Twitter. Our fans are so sweet and supportive. Of course, you get the odd Tweet every now and again and you can’t help but look at the profile. I try to laugh it off and forget about it. It’s an instinct to defend yourself, but you have to remember these people are just sad. People get a kick out of getting a reaction and they want celebrities on Twitter to react.

Busting a move Harry shows off some of the skills that helped him and Aliona win Strictly in 2011.
I think the other guys are far more vain – they’re very metrosexual. I’d say I’m more in the middle. But in terms of the way I look and working out, I’m more interested in being healthy. It’s important for people we’re encouraged to keep fit. We have an obesity problem, so people need to be educated about food and the importance of being healthy.
How time McFlies
We know you’re good at dancing because we saw you on Strictly, but what else do you do?
I have a lot of other hobbies. I like to play sport, football, rugby and tennis. I’d love to dance again, it’s just where do you do it? I couldn’t go to a salsa class. I danced with an amazing dancer [Aliona Vilani, 29] on the show and a great dancer makes you look better than you are. It’s easier to dance with a professional because you get used to the way they dance and hold themselves. The first time I danced after Strictly was at my wedding with my wife [Izzy Johnston, 29]. It was fun, but we didn’t rehearse for it. We just did it. I like to think that if I did some dancing now I wouldn’t have lost the skills completely. Strictly fans ask me all the time if I keep up with my dancing and I’m embarrassed to say I haven’t danced as much as I’d have liked. Danny’s getting hitched soon to model Georgia Horsley . You must be looking forward to the stag do.
Danny’s do will be a pretty stereotypical stag. He’s more of a lad than the rest of us. Come to think of it, Tom [Fletcher, 28] had quite a laddy one, which
Aww, Danny, Tom, Dougie and Harry have definitely all grown up since their teen boy band days. But old men? No way!
2013 might come as a surprise. But Danny’s will be a lot of fun. We can just imagine you boys getting up to no good!
You can’t get Danny too drunk because he gets sick, so he doesn’t like doing loads of shots. And then he has Dougie and me – who don’t drink – making sure no one gets too wasted so they don’t miss out on all the fun. That said, Tom’s stag got pretty wild. The first night was amazing and it was all civilised, but the second night I took my eye off the game and Danny got through shot after shot. Within an hour of going out he’d gone back to the hotel with Dougie and thrown up. Do you think you guys will be roped into play at the wedding?
We played for an hour at Tom’s
2004 wedding and he sang his speech to his wife Giovanna [Falcone, 28]! Then at my wedding we had a band that played beautiful songs. I’m sure Danny will be up there at his do doing Bruce Springsteen and Stereophonics!
So after nine months of marriage, any kids planned?
We’d like to have a family, but we’re busy. McFly have a new album and are touring again, so I hope we can find the time. I always say if I’m lucky enough I really hope I can have children one day.

That’s what we call a six-pack! It’s getting there. I’ve been training every day. You’ve done so well – have you cut out booze?
I was partying five times a week, but I’ve cut out beer and I’ll drink vodka with cranberry or lime and soda. I used to have four beers and vodka, now it’s just vodka [laughs]. Are you still snacking?
I’ve stopped. I loved crisps so much, I’d have four packs a day.
Now if I fancy a snack I’ll eat nuts or fruit. I can feel the benefits in my body – I’ve got more energy. Did you always want a six-pack?
I did, but it was more about getting into shape. Other boys on TOWIE, like Dan Osborne and Mario Falcone, are all ripped with gym bodies – so I felt I had to keep up. Because all the girls fancy them?
No! They fancy me, too. When we heard we were filming TOWIE in Vegas I thought I’d get in shape because us boys are all single.

said: ‘Let’s try to get into shape.’ If we go out for dinner no one orders a burger and chips now! If Arg ordered something bad would you say anything?
I’d try, but his favourite saying is: ‘My diet starts Monday.’ To be fair he’s losing weight again. He’s lost 1st recently. Did you have any cheat days?
I won’t lie, in Ibiza I had a few chips and a burger by the pool. What’s your guilty food pleasure?
I love curry – lamb dopiaza, Peshwari naan, pilau rice, onion bhajis, saag paneer and Cobra beers. Or we’ll go to Wagamama in Westfield in Stratford, London, for the Chicken Katsu curry.

Did you ever contemplate surgery to get a six-pack?
No! Leave that to the women! Have you had more luck with the ladies since you’ve buffed up?
I’m not too unlucky in love! Did you pull in Ibiza recently?
That was more of a party holiday… not that I didn’t pull… How many?
That’d be telling, wouldn’t it? Are you happy with your body?
Yeah. I’ve been trying hard and it’s quite addictive. I feel more confident when I take my top off.
Do you ever walk around the house naked?
Sometimes! I’m pretty body confident. How often do you hit the gym?
For an hour, five days a week. What do you do?
It varies. I do bench presses, situps and crunches. Then weights behind my head, bicep curls, press-ups and pull ups: they’re the best things to build muscle – lifting your own weight.
laziest person you could ever meet. I’ve been a few times with Joey Essex as he’s got a gym in his flat. Do you support each other when you’re trying to be healthy?

Last time we spoke, you said you fancied Lucy Meck. Do you think she’ll like your six-pack?
I need to speak to her. I think she might fancy me – maybe when I take my top off in Vegas. They say ‘What happens in Vegas…’ We’ll see. I’m looking forward to it – let’s see what happens. Who’s your body inspiration?
Mario – but he let himself go in the CBB house. I might give him a run for his money!

Well done you! How much weight have you lost?
Just over a stone – 1st 9lb.
Do you feel better?
Oh no, it’s horrible trying to eat healthily, especially when you go to the supermarket and think something’s healthy and then look on the packet and see it isn’t.
What was your diet like before?
Total shit. I live on my own, so I don’t stock my fridge up. I’d walk down the road and order takeaways – pizzas and stuff. I’ve always eaten what I want and never thought it mattered. What are you eating now?
A lot of chicken. Everything you can put chicken with. Have you had a cheat day?
I did have some bread and butter. There were some hot French baguettes on the table and I couldn’t resist!
ÔI’VE NEVER SWEATED SO MUCH IN MY LIFE!’
Have you quit boozing?

No. I’m drinking vodka, soda and lime. But it’s so bland. It gives me heartburn. Before I’d have six or seven Jägerbombs, vodka and Red Bull. It used to take me quite a lot to get drunk, probably because I was filling up on so much shit. What made you decide to get fit?
Everyone else was doing it. Joey and Tom would order chicken and salad – so if I had a double cheeseburger and chips, I’d feel like a bit of a fatty! Which bit did you hate most?
bar in clubs, but I’ve made an effort to hit the dancefloor. I don’t think I’ve ever sweated so much in my life. I feel like my body’s permanently damp – it’s horrible! Has anyone ever bullied you about the way you look?
I was just a blob with no sign of definition. I didn’t think the weight would drop off so fast, but my body shape has changed and I don’t have a double chin any more.
It’s just banter off the boys.
What exercise do you do?
You’d think if they could grab quite large chunks, you should probably do something about it,
I hate gyms. I went running and dancing. Normally I’d chill at the
What would they say to you?
They’d grab my belly or play with my moobs! Did it ever get you down?
Diags’ food diary
Breakfast I never got up for breakfast, but if I did, I’d have a fry-up Lunch Takeaways or chips Dinner I’d cook myself a meal covered in fatty sauces. Instead of having vegetables with my meals I’d have chips, or roast potatoes in oil
but I’d rather eat what I want – and suffer the consequences.
So could you pull a really fit girl if you wanted to?
Does it get competitive between you boys to get the best body?
Let’s not go that far…
They get competitive, but I don’t want to worry myself over that, otherwise I’d be well depressed!
Are you getting a bit more attention from the ladies now?
We did a PA in Magaluf and I had a bit of interest, yeah. It helps if you’re abroad and you’re a little bit slimmer because you can take your top off. Before, I was on the verge of wanting to keep my top on around the pool, but this time I tried to get a lovely tan – and some girls were interested.

That’s a lot of effort [laughs]! What’s happening with you and Abi Clarke now?
I’ve called her a couple of times but she’s been in Marbella. So it’s just casual?
Yeah. I’m not in Vegas because I didn’t get a visa – I was a dope! Do you worry she’ll meet someone else?
We’ll find out after Vegas!

Now she’s back stronger than ever, unveiling her latest fashion collection and a new make-up range for Littlewoods. ‘I’m a mum of two in celebland,’ she says. ‘I’m still doing the school run before work, so I know what I need my clothes to do… With ice cream and everything else that gets spilt, a PVC mac should be your school-run uniform.’ And if Myleene needs her outfits to make her look smokin’ hot, from where we’re standing at her new season shoot, she’s going the right way about it… Describe your look in five words.

fashion are just like the fun police. Who said this was right and this was wrong? I never want to be that person. My mum’s Filipino and she believes ‘more is more’ when it comes to fabrics and textures. I’ve seen people in the most expensive designer outfits but then they’re shying away from themselves and the clothes, are wearing them. I want to be like my mum, full of life, happiness, excitement, colour and vibrancy because that energy fills a room and those people are magnetic.
How has your style evolved?
When I was a lot bigger, I used to just camouflage myself with my clothes. I didn’t see them as fun and I certainly didn’t see them as an expression of who I am. I used to think: ‘What can I wear that will hide my bum? What can I wear that isn’t going to make me look so busty?’ And then as you get older, you get more confident and realise: ‘This is the body I’ve got, so let me just make the most of it!’ What are the weirdest things you’ve ever read about your style?

Well, it was actually one fashion disaster after another in Hear’Say. There was a really bad run of double denim, but not in a good or ironic way. But when you’re trying to dress five people – two of whom are boys – it’s really difficult.
‘There should be no fashIon rules’
I remember this one pic of me getting out of a car and someone said of it: ‘The clothes are hanging off her. What does she look like? She’s lost too much weight.’ Then the next day, someone else said of another pic: ‘Wow, she’s put on the pounds…’ Those photos were two

else, but ultimately, it’s the person behind the clothes who’s important, isn’t it? I think the best advice I’ve ever had is that you should always imagine yourself aged 10 again. What would you want for yourself? I’m like: ‘Oh my God, that’s it!’ I look at Hero and I look at Ava and I think: ‘What do I want for them? What do I want them to be? What would I say to my 10-year-old self?’ So I laugh. Myleene’s fashion collection is available at Littlewoods.com. For more info, call 0844 8228000

WHO CUTS IT? Nicola Roberts It’s V for easy-peasy victory rolls – as championed by Girls Aloud singer Nicola. ‘Style with heated rollers to add texture and volume, then find a centre parting,’ says Percy & Reed’s Adam Reed. ‘Take two sections from the front and twist towards your parting, pushing up and forward to create a loose quiff. Bring the ends together at the back and pin. Fix the whole thing with hairspray.’
WHO CUTS IT? Rita Ora If you fancy a change from longer locks but aren’t ready to do a full-on Jessie J, this look is for you, says Naomi Campbell’s hairstylist Daniel Dyer (david artists.co.uk). ‘It’s an update on last winter’s Great Gatsby bob,’ he explains, ‘but it’s cut very blunt and is therefore more flexible.’ Use a smoothing wand to give your bob a wet look à la the Alexander Wang runway. £10.99

Head to your salon for this look, says hairstylist Daniel Dyer. ‘Pinks and purples are unpredictable colours, so see a professional hairdresser’s or you could be more blue rinse than purple haze,’ he warns. Or to flirt with the look temporarily, try a semi-permanent cream or coloured clip-in.
WHO CUTS IT? Jessie J Thankfully, the shaved head look has moved on – to the softer crop. Norris Ogario, creative director of Ogario London, says: ‘It’s all about the combination of the cut and the blonde shade here as darker hues can look too severe.’ Team your crop with brogues and a boy-cut coat.

Use food labels to make healthy choices
Forget yo-yo diets – eating smart is all about understanding what’s in your meals
As the first UK retailer to introduce traffic light labelling eight years ago, Sainsbury’s remains the largest user of the traffic light labels. With the introduction of these new labels under the new scheme, the familiar wheel will be replaced with lozenges (see below).
Don’t worry if you like to count calories – that info will stay put, though under the new Government scheme calories will no longer be colour-coded. What’s new is that you’ll find out how much energy there is in food, both per serving and per 100g. As well as calories, this will be shown as kilojoules (kJ), which are a different
way of measuring calories – 1kcal equals 4.2 kJ. Allergy sufferers should be particularly aware of the changes, as allergens will now be in bold type in the ingredients list, rather than in a separate box on the back of the packaging. Another small change is that GDAs (guideline daily amounts) will become RIs
Food traffic lights explained The traffic light colours on food and drink indicate how much fat, saturates (saturated fat), sugars and salt they contain. A red sign should make you stop and think because it warns you
that it’s something you should only enjoy once in a while. Amber is an OK choice most of the time but the best option is to eat healthy foods that have green indicators.
(reference intakes). This tells you how much of certain nutrients it is advisable to eat on a daily basis. The largest number of products with new labels will appear in-store in January 2014. As that’s when many of us begin healthy eating regimes, make it your new year’s resolution to check them out.

s a nation, we’re obsessed with celebs losing or gaining weight and finding out about all the latest diets. But the simplest way to keep in shape is by knowing what we’re eating. Due to a new Government scheme and labelling law, labels on food and drink are changing and Sainsbury’s is keen to help you understand how they work.

Whenever I feel tired, IÕll have a Berocca or Seven Seas. They help keep away colds and sickness.

What’s the best health tip you’ve been given?
To give up smoking. I feel so much better since I did. IÕm a singer too and can now massively hear the difference in my voice. What’s been your worst health scare?
When I was 10 doctors thought I had rheumatoid arthritis. I had to go for lots of blood tests, but luckily the pains just went away. Maybe it was really extreme growing pains Ð the doctors never got to the bottom of it.

women worry they may have difficulties getting pregnant, so it’s such a blessing. I said to Mum the other day: ‘Just think, I’ll be going to hospital and it won’t be for anything depressing!’ I’m still in my size 6 jeans at the mo, but I’m not too worried about my growing bump and my body getting bigger. Of course, I’m a bit scared, too. But I’ve received so much support from you all already on Twitter and I feel so touched I’ve actually screen-grabbed some of your Tweets to show my baby when he or she is older!

Tamara’s having a baby, too!
I’m very honoured to announce I’m the new ambassador for the UK Stem Cell Foundation. It’s a cause close to my heart as it’s through a stem cell transplant that I got my eyesight back after it was damaged in my attack. If I’d had the injury 10 years ago I wouldn’t have been able to have that treatment as it wasn’t advanced enough. And I wouldn’t have been able to have a baby because I would’ve needed a cornea transplant and have taken anti-rejection drugs for the rest of my life, which can cause infertility. Some people feel stem cell therapy is immoral, but these medical advances should be embraced so we can help people who need it. We shouldn’t be scared of change or what we don’t understand.
I think Tamara’s going to be a fantastic mum
I was so pleased to hear that my friend Tamara Ecclestone is expecting her first baby too, with her new hubby Jay Rutland. She’s a huge supporter of my charity and a real top lady. In photos, she always looks so natural around her sister Petra’s baby, so I think Tamara’s going to be an amazing mum!

Dear Katie I don’t trust my boyfriend Should I I’ve been with my ditch my boyfriend two years, Katie says but I constantly get boozy mate? I strongly believe in following the feeling he’s
seeing other girls behind my back. My worries stem from when we first got together and I found messages from his exes on his phone. I’ve also found sexy photos of girls I don’t know. When I confronted him about it he said I was being stupid and I felt like I was going crazy. Now he refuses to discuss it, but I just feel my gut instincts are right. What do I do? Hannah, London
your gut – those niggly feelings are usually there for a reason. In a healthy relationship you shouldn’t check each other’s phones or worry what they’re up to because the trust should be there. You should feel happy and confident – not worried and insecure. It would be really complicated if you were married or had a baby, but as he won’t address your fears and makes it feel like it’s your fault, it sounds like he doesn’t really respect you. I think it’s best to nip it in the bud and move on.
I recently got back in touch with a friend. We have so much fun, but I’m worried about her drinking. She keeps knocking them back until she’s so drunk she gets into trouble. I feel I also end up drinking more too whenever I’m out with her. Is it time to ditch her? Claire, via email

not my scene any more. But don’t just dump your mate – tell her you think you’re both drinking too much and ask how she feels about it. Sometimes a letter is best because it’ll give her space to reflect without it being confrontational. She may feel the same and this could be a turning point in your friendship where you both find another hobby to bond over on a Saturday night.

What’ll get your pulse racing this week
Homeland, Channel 4, 9pm, 6 October
Homeland for beginners
Whaddya mean you haven’t seen Homeland? Where do you live, under a rock? There’s absolutely no excuse for it – but, because we’re really, really nice at Now, we’ve put together a beginner’s guide for those of you who’ve committed grave sins against telly (or do actually live under a rock). Here’s a little reminder so you can catch up before sinking your teeth into season three…
So who’s who?
The main characters you need to know about are CIA officer Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes), war hero/ suspected terrorist Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis) and Carrie’s CIA boss Saul Berenson (Mandy Patinkin).
What’s happened so far, then?
Well, loads, but here are the bits you need to remember: bipolar Carrie was obsessed with proving that ‘war hero’ Brody was brainwashed by Al-Qaeda while he was held prisoner in Iraq for eight years and is in fact a terrorist. She stopped at nothing to prove it, including putting his home under 24-hour surveillance and, er, sleeping with him. But Brody’s not stupid and knew all along she was trying to bring
him down. Under the influence of terrorist leader Abu Nazir, he attempted an attack on the US, but was unable to go through with it. In series two, Brody became a Congressman and Carrie was still unable to stay away from him (yep, she’s got a thaaang for Brody despite believing him to be a terrorist!). But then he was linked to a devastating bomb attack that killed the Vice President… We’ll leave it there – you really should get the box set (£33.25 from amazon.co.uk).
What else do I need to know? Everyone has secrets on this show – and lots of people have affairs with other people. Oh, and Claire Danes is remarkable.
With mounting horror, Carrie realised… she’d left the iron on

o you’ve written another cookery book, Lisa…
It’s called The Way I Cook. Each chapter’s about different moods – like when the house is full of kids on a Sunday morning, when I want to make something special or when the sun’s shining.
This song might be the only thing that can erase the image of Miley Cyrus licking a sledgehammer from our brains. *Shudders* Work it, Brit! Samsung Galaxy Gear
A quickie with… Lisa Faulkner
Work Bitch by Britney Spears Out 4 November
This has got to be the weirdest idea ever. The OC’s being remade… in, um, Turkey. And it’s not even gonna be shown in the UK. Boo, hiss, cabbages!
What’s cooking, Lisa? – her husband Jason kept saying: ‘Angela did this,’ and: ‘Angela did that.’ You could tell he adores her. Have you been watching The Great British Bake Off?
Yes! I love it. It’s too early to tell who’s going to win, but they’re all amazing bakers.
Only 12 weeks ’til Christmas
What’s your food heaven?
Anything with roast chicken. I make mine just with salt, pepper, oil and potatoes around the side. What about food hell?
I hate the smell of cinnamon. It’s my idea of torture! The Way I Cook (£20, Simon & Schuster) is out now
It can’t be, can it? *Watches our life flash before our eyes and hides under desk… which still has scraps of paper from Chrimbo 2012 underneath* Nooo!

You’ll see three episodes – the first two Beatles specials, while episode three is devoted to Finn – before the series takes a break until later in the autumn. In the first, The New Directions have a mammoth task on their hands when Will asks them to

‘I lIke to Squeeze leMon juIce on My food’
s a m o h T Luke
Britain’s youngest head chef, 20, talks dining with Alan Sugar and hating tofu My father’s from Liverpool and he does a dish called Scouse – it’s the Liverpool version of a hotpot. You use lamb neck, onions, potatoes and stock. Then you just cook it for hours and hours and let it go nice and thick. It’s so tasty.
And what’s your favourite dessert?
Roly-poly with custard. It’s always super-comforting. Do you ever have any kitchen disasters?
Every day! One of the worst was on a busy Sunday when I went into the kitchen at 11.30am to get out roast beef that I thought had been cooking from
the night before – but I realised the oven hadn’t been turned on! What ingredient can’t you do without?
Lemon juice. It works with everything, especially when you put bolder flavours together because the acidity cuts through. I’ll squeeze lemon juice on top of a steak or on potatoes with herbs and lots of olive oil.
Wh a your favt were e as a chisweets ld? Dolly mix tures. And I loved rhu barb and sweets, to custard o!
Who would you invite to a dinner party, dead or alive?
Alan Sugar and Steven Gerrard – I’m a big fan of them. And Michelle Keegan – although she’s taken, so maybe Lucy Meck from TOWIE because I think she’s single right now.
What’s your idea of food hell?
Tofu. I really don’t like the texture of it – and it doesn’t taste of anything! I just don’t see why you would eat it unless you were a vegetarian.
Spring ScallopS (Serves 4)
● 1 large carrot, peeled and cut into thin strips ● 1 leek, trimmed and cut into strips ● 2tbsp unsalted butter ● 2 thyme sprigs, plus extra thyme leaves ● 200g/7oz scallops
A glass of Malibu Caribbean Rum With Coconut. I love retro drinks!
1 2 3
Cook the carrot strips in a large pan of boiling water for 1 min. Add the leek strips to the pan and cook for 1 min, then drain. Heat half the butter in a frying pan, adding the thyme sprigs and the scallops. Sear the scallops for 2 mins on each side. Take out the scallops and add to the veg mix. Heat the rest of the butter in the pan with the thyme leaves. Spoon over the scallops to serve. Enjoy!

My life in
I was starstruck meeting The Vaccines
Lucy Spraggan, 22, talks X Factor pals and being starstruck
I appreciate good music, so coming face to face with my fave band got me flustered. I don’t ever want to lose that respect.
The sounds of my youth
The song that reminds me of being a youngster Follow Me by Uncle Kracker. The track came out in 2001 and it reminds me of playing out in the fields with my mates and generally causing mayhem.
The first album I ever bought
My X Factor bezzies I speak to Ella Henderson whenever I can. And I went out with the lovely Rylan Clark the other night. I don’t think I’d do Celebrity Big Brother, but I’m so glad he did it – he’s done so well.
It was one by American rock band The Offspring. I can’t remember which one as I was pretty young. But the first album that I ever remember listening to as a child was by Tracy Chapman. Her voice is so amazing.
Words: Rosie Gizauskas. Photos: Rex, Xposure, WENN, LFI
I’m still in touch with Jahméne Douglas from The X Factor
Lucy’s music inspirations: Johnny Cash (inset) and The Clash’s Joe Strummer
I’m not mates with Chris Maloney I saw him shout at this girl who worked on the X Factor production team. All the criticism he got is completely fair – I don’t know him that well, but you can’t treat people like that. I’ll never ever be friends with him!
We get along well and now we’re pen pals. We write down whatever we want to say in our letters. It’s sweet.
My new album is finally coming out It’s so exciting! The album has some of my older stuff that you might recognise from The X Factor, such as Last Night, my audition song. The whole thing’s made up of different stories – like me travelling the world – and personal experiences. I write about me – I’m very honest. I can’t wait for people to hear my music.
As a kid, I grew up listening to Johnny Cash and The Clash. I was a rap music fan as well, so that’s always stuck with me.
I loved doing fancy dress with Tulisa
My fave artists at the moment
I adore Professor Green – I’d like to work him. And Macklemore’s ace. He has a song called Same Love, which is about equality. It’s a great message.
LucyÕs album Join The Club is out 7 October
I dressed as a pumpkin for Rylan’s birthday do last year – I wanted to wear a silly costume. I was never going to do a sexy outfit, but Tulisa and Nicole Scherzinger looked hot.
