David Tennant as Dr Who
David Tennant has announced he is quitting as Dr Who after filming four special episodes during 2009 and the Christmas special.

In an interview with the BBC, David Tennant went on to talk about his reasons for quitting the role as Dr Who, "I think it's better to go when there's a chance that people might miss you, rather than to hang around and outstay your welcome."

Dr Who has proved popular with viewers since the BBC resurrected it after a 16 year break, with 10 million tuning into the final episode of the fourth series.

Leona Lewis took a stand for her vegetarian principles and turned down a reported £1m ($1.7m) to open the Harrod's summer sale. The chart topping singer has been a vegetarian since the age of twelve and said she is,"totally against animal cruelty. I don't have clothes, shoes or bags made from any animal products."

The London department store was opened instead by Sex And The City star Kim Cattrall as Leona refused because the department store sells fur. According to the Daily Mail, Leona is reportedly in talks with Bhs boss Sir Philip Green about creating a range of non leather bags and shoes for Topshop.

The X Factor singer was also recently voted Sexiest Vegetarian and continues to enjoy success both in America and the UK.

Girls Aloud: Nicola Roberts Birthday Pictures

Nicola Roberts on her 23rd birthday
Girls Aloud singer, Nicola Roberts enjoyed her 23rd birthday this weekend at London's Wellington Club with friends but with the press close at hand, it was never going to be a private affair. Looking hot and glamorous at the start of the night, it didn't take too many drinks for the press to capture some not so glamorous pictures.

Pictures of Nicola Roberts leaving the club worse for wear have appeared online and reveal more than normal. The singer's nipple can clearly be seen in one of the pictures, and leaves you wondering how far is too far? Is this an invasion of privacy, how would you feel if it were you being splashed across the media?

No wonder Sarah Harding have the "V" sign to the press as she climbed into the car at the end of the evening celebrations, as she showed her anger at the press intrusion. Let's just hope it didn't spoil Nicola's birthday!

Mel C Shows Baby Bump On Al Murray Show

Mel C showed off her 'baby bump' during an interview on ITV's 'Al Murray's Happy Hour' tonight (Friday 3rd October). Melanie is the last Spice Girl to become a mother, but has no regrets about waiting until she was 34 years old.

Taking about the other Spice Girls motherhood, she said, " they're all mums and they're all really good mums actually." When asked if the baby is a boy or a girl, Melanie C told Al Murray, "I don't know and I don't want to know."


Mel C also spoke about the Spice Girls reunion and said that initially she didn't want to do it but "now I've done it - it was amazing and I'm really glad I did." Claims about how much the Spice Girls made from their reunion tour were exaggerated, "it wasn't what they said in the papers, by a long stretch."


Melanie C will be performing an acoustic gig at Manchester's Hard Rock Cafe on Thursday 9th October to help raise money for breast cancer research. The full Al Murray interview will be shown on ITV at 10pm tonight.
