• EastEnders: Roxy and Ronnie Mitchell to be killed off

    Love them or hate them, you can’t deny that Ronnie and Roxy Mitchell leaving EastEnders is going to be the end of an era for the BBC One soap, especially now that we have learned that it’s going to be a permanent departure. Actresses Rita Simons (Roxy) and Sam Womack (Ronnie) are said to be upset by the news that the Mitchell sisters are being bumped off as they’d hoped to have the option to return at some stage in the future. The exit comes under new producer Sean O’Connor’s ruling, with Sean already killing off much-loved character Paul Coker as well as announcing the departures of other favourites, including Babe Carter, Masood Ahmed, Lee Carter, Claudette Hubbard, Buster, Briggs, Pam and Les Coker and Kyle Slater.

  • So much for Jeremy Corbyn's call for Labour to wipe the slate clean

    Instead of starting afresh and burying their differences, the Labour leaders' supporters and his opponents are continuing to clash with the same ferocity. The most ugly clash came between John McDonnell and Yvette Cooper over the shadow chancellor's controversial call before the last election for the former Tory MP Esther McVey to be "lynched". In a TV clash with Ms Cooper, Mr McDonnell defended his comments about Ms McVey, which included telling MPs in the Commons in March last year that the then employment minister was a "stain on humanity".

Louise was as good as I was expecting her to be, and with Choreography King Kevin giving the judges what they want to see, she’ll go a long way. Exciting choreography - there was enough cha cha for me - and super timing.

  • PM May rebuffed calls to play bigger role in EU referendum campaign

    By Kylie MacLellan LIVERPOOL, England (Reuters) - Prime Minister Theresa May repeatedly failed to back her predecessor David Cameron in his fight to keep Britain in the European Union and hampered his attempts to rein in migration, according to extracts from two books about the referendum. May, who served as interior minister under Cameron and succeeded him as prime minister when he resigned after Britain's vote to leave the EU, backed staying in the bloc but was largely absent from the campaign. The two books come as May faces the complex task of leading negotiations over Britain's EU divorce, having divulged little on her intended strategy.

  • Princess Charlotte gives wave to the crowd while Prince George refuses high-five greeting

    Princess Charlotte, wearing a blue-flowered frock, gave a little wave, much to the delight of the assembled crowd who had gathered to see the royal family of four. The star of the Canadian royal tour is Princess Charlotte, on her first official visit. Shortly after landing in Victoria, British Columbia on Saturday (24 September), uniformed guards were seen unloading the young princess's dresses for the eight-day visit. The year-old daughter of Kate Middleton is making her first overseas trip, while three-year-old brother George has already visited Australia and New Zealand. Kate Middleton carried her daughter down the steps of the Canadian Government Airbus 310, taking care of her safety as Princess Charlotte appeared to have a small graze on her right knee. The next time the public see Princess Charlotte and Prince George will be on 1 October as the royal children's appearances are being restricted to give them privacy and shield them from scrutiny. "It would have been overwhelming for them," royal watcher Debbie Burnham told NBC news. "This allows the parents to relax." Prince George seemed confused by the Canadian prime minister's attempt to high-five him. Trudeau knelt down on the tarmac to greet the young prince, raising his hand in greeting. It was an embarrassing moment as the Canadian then tried to shake the three-year old's hand. Prince George held tightly on to his father, Prince William's hand, obviously not having learned the correct way to salute a Canadian premier. It's not known whether Trudeau gave the instruction "Gimme five!" Kate and William will visit Vancouver on Sunday (25 September) to visit Downtown Eastside, which is an area known for poverty and homeless addicts. The royals will then move on to an immigrant welcome centre where they will talk with refugee families from Syria. More than 30,000 refugees have settled in Canada since Trudeau was elected prime minister in October 2015.

  • Britain to seek independent membership of WTO after Brexit - newspaper

    Britain intends to become an independent member of the World Trade Organisation when it leaves the European Union, trade minister Liam Fox will say next week, according to a report in the Sunday Telegraph newspaper. The newspaper, without citing its sources, said Fox would use a speech at the WTO on Tuesday to say Britain would seek to be an independent member of the body so that it could negotiate its own trade deals outside of the EU. Being an independent member of the WTO would involve Britain leaving the EU's customs union, the newspaper said, something the government has so far refused to confirm it intends to do.
