Britney Spears came to Birmingham for a show at the Genting Arena, part of the NEC complex, on Friday, August 31. The singer brought her Piece Of Me tour to Brum before a show in Blackpool over the weekend. But despite giving a towering performance in the seaside town, her mind was clearly on Birmingham still. The show served as part of her UK tour, which had an “incredible demand”, according to promoters. Britney Spears performs in Taipei, Taiwan, in June 2017.
It followed Britney’s record-breaking, four-year headlining residency Britney: Piece of Me at The AXIS at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.
The 36-year-old singer appeared to be a little confused on Saturday night, however, when she asked the Blackpool crowd: “How you feeling, Birmingham?” Fans soon clarified her mistake and she added: “I mean Blackpool!”
As the first contemporary superstar resident in the city, Britney revitalised the programme of entertainment in Vegas. With over 250 shows, the record-setting residency was sold out on a regular basis, generating over $140 million gross revenue and selling nearly a million tickets.
Roxanne Pallett was left tearing up this evening after struggling to answer claims made by her former soap co-stars. The 35-year-old Emmerdale actress, who admitted she was the “most hated woman in Britain”, was grilled by Emma Willis this evening in a pre-recorded interview. Bringing up the fact that other co-stars she had worked with in the past had accused her of violence, Emma asked what she would say to them. This includes Sam Attwater, who claimed she had hit him while they were touring with Rocky Horror together. Roxanne Pallett teared up after the question was asked
Struggling to answer, she eventually replied: “Devastating – no one wants to hear that… especially from people you worked with.” She added, getting tearful: “I’m the most hated girl in Britain now.” Over the last few days, she faced the wrath of the public after saying Ryan had “punched her five or six times” and insisted that he had deliberately tried to hurt her.
Emma pointed out that Roxanne had left “a lot of things unanswered” and questioned her what had been going through her mind when she made the accusations. “Watching it feels like a completely different scenario to it was at the time,” Roxanne replied, but Emma probed her on how – two days later – she still got it “so wrong”. Especially when she reenacted what had happened on Ben. The former soap actress insisted that it had hurt, adding: “I convinced myself he meant to do it.” But Emma then asked her why she gained that new perspective from watching it. “Because I saw what every single person saw and I don’t blame anyone for [criticising my actions],” she said. “I’m more shocked at myself more than anyone.” Video Loading Video Unavailable Click to play Tap to play The video will start in 8Cancel Play now She added: “I have to think about why I used humour than something more serious happened in my mind.” Questioned why she hadn’t gone up to Ryan about the incident, she said: “That’s something I’ve asked myself… I think it’s because I didn’t think he liked me… I convinced myself it was malice.” “You could have ruined somebody,” Emma responded. “I’m devastated, it cripples me with embarrassment,” she said. Roxanne said that she was ‘crippled with embarrassment’ over her actions
Emma pointed out that she had time over the few days to research, Roxanne admitted that she was “genuinely disturbed” by what she had done and that “hindsight was a wonderful thing”. Asked whether she had reached out to Ryan’s family she said that she “didn’t want to impose” on them. Emma pointed out that they deserved an apology, to which Roxanne pointed out that she gave them one during her interview earlier today, adding: “All I can do is apologise”. “What did your family say?” Emma asked. Roxanne replied: “They were gutted for me.” Roxanne said that her family were ‘gutted’ for her
“Gutted for you?” Emma said pointedly. “Gutted for the whole situation,” Roxanne replied. “My mum knows I’m sensitive.” Emma then brought up the fact that other co-stars she had worked with in the past had accused her of violence and asked what she would say to them. This includes Sam Attwater, who claimed she had hit him while they were touring with Rocky Horror together. “Devastating – no one wants to hear that,” she replied. “Especially from people you worked with.” She added: “I’m the most hated girl in Britain now.” Video Loading Video Unavailable Click to play Tap to play The video will start in 8Cancel Play now Emma asked: “Do you deserve that title?” “I’m going to try and own it and accept it,” Roxanne said. Asked whether she would forgive herself if she weren’t her, she replied before breaking into tears: “I would want to.” This comes after Roxanne’s much-criticised interview with Jeremy Vine earlier today, despite apologising to Ryan Thomas and his family. The former Emmerdale actress broke her silence in her first interview since walking out of the CBB house. Roxanne appeared on the Channel 5 show and admitted that she “got it wrong” after accusing the ex-Corrie star of deliberately punching her. Appearing on Jeremy Vine on Channel 5, the former Emmerdale star said she “overreacted” to the situation because her “insecurities were heightened” and “judgement was clouded” in the house. Roxanne was interviewed by Jeremy earlier today
Roxy confessed she regrets using the word “deliberate” and that her reaction was a ‘telltale sign of being a victim of domestic abuse’. However, her former Emmerdale co-stars took to Twitter to blast her apology as “lies, lies, lies”. Charlie Webb, who plays Debbie Dingle, wrote: “What about all the other accusations you’ve made along the years? Backtracking because no-one’s on your side. If those cameras hadn’t have been there, he would be finished. End of. #Roxanne.” He’s worried his career has been tarnished
Meanwhile Sammy Winward, who played Katie Sugden, tweeted: “Lies lies lies.” Ryan’s brother Adam wrote: “Jeremy Vine too scared to speak up too PC pathetic interview!! “To everyone that knows her and knows the real her and the lies and the stories she has spun for several years it is so frustrating to watch. Good scene tho Rox annnddddd cut!![sic]”.
Roxanne Pallett and Ryan Thomas’s CBB beef Denise Welch, who previously appeared on Corrie, slammed the apology on Loose Women today. She said Ryan’s life would be “in tatters” had Roxanne made the Punchgate claims in a CBB room that didn’t have cameras. The panellist stood up for Ryan, calling him a “gentleman”, while slamming Roxanne’s apology on today’s Jeremy Vine Show – and hinted there was yet more to come out about Roxy’s past behaviour. “She’s apologised because she was caught out, I feel very strongly about this,” Denise fumed on the ITV chat show. “I haven’t seen the interview but there’s nothing she could say that would convince me it wasn’t the most horrific thing I’ve seen on television.” Denise went on: “I’ve known Ryan for a long time and I’ve been in the CBB house – I know how it can play with your head.”
Jacqueline Jossa broke her silence on estranged husband Dan Osborne’s decision to join this year’s Celebrity Big Brother as she discussed her marriage. The former EastEnders actress appeared to suggest she would be open to rekindling her romance with Dan, 27. Speaking about her current situation with the former The Only Way Is Essex star, Jacqueline revealed they were not back together. “We’re not officially back together but he’s living with us so we spend every day together, and we’re getting on really well,” she said. “It’s hard for me to discuss my relationship when we haven’t had a chance to talk about it properly. I don’t know what the future holds.”
In an interview, Jacqueline insisted she would stand by Dan “no matter what” happens in the future. She added: “Dan is my family and no matter what goes on in our marriage that won’t change.” However, Jacqueline seemed less than impressed with Dan’s decision to take part in Celebrity Big Brother. The 25-year-old soap star admitted she would not be at the finale show to support Dan but hopes he wins. “I won’t be there at the final, I think that would be a bit weird. We need to talk when he’s back and see where we both stand,” she explained. “It’s a shame he went on the show while we were still figuring things out. The timing wasn’t great for us.” She continued: “But I told him that if he felt like it was something he needed to do then I’d support him wholeheartedly.” Dan has been very open about her marital issues since appearing on the Channel 5 show, however his openness has rubbed Jacqueline the wrong way. “It’s been hard seeing Daniel discuss our marriage with a group of people I’ve never met,” she stated.
Dan is currently sharing a house with Love Island 2017 star Gabby Allen, 25, who he was romantically linked to earlier this year. However, Dan hit out at fan in May, who asked him about Gabby, saying: “‘Cosy’ with another woman. I am speaking and laughing with a friend. “But of course, a man and a woman can’t be friends in this day and age can they? Also, you don’t know me, don’t know how I ‘act’.” A day later Jacqueline wrote on Twitter: “No one needs to comment and get involved in things they don’t know anything about. “Daniel and I are dealing with things privately as a team, there is always two sides to every story.” She concluded: “Stop with the nasty comments, no one deserves them. Trust me, privacy please.”
Roxanne Pallett has broken her silence after her shock exit from the Celebrity Big Brother house on Saturday morning. The former Emmerdale actress walked out after accusing Ryan Thomas of ‘assaulting’ her during what appeared to be a play fight. And she’s now opened up about her reasons for quitting the show which she was rumoured to have secured a £750,000 fee for. “Roxanne decided to leave the CBB house late last night after deliberating for two days with some sensitive issues she felt strongly about,” her rep said. Roxanne has opened up about her decision to leave. Ryan sobbed that the claims had left his life ‘in tatters’. Roxanne Pallett and Ryan Thomas’s CBB beef “She has now been reunited with her fiancé and family and thanks everyone for their support during her time in the show.” The Channel 5 show confirmed her departure earlier today, stating: “Roxanne has decided to leave the BB House. The remaining housemates have been informed.”
The actress is believed to have checked into the plush The Manor Elstree Laura Ashely hotel in Borehamwood – near the CBB studios – for a bit of R&R. And her sudden exit follows her claims that ex-Coronation Street star Ryan hit her in the ribs ‘deliberately’ and ‘repeatedly’.
The pair held peace talks on Friday. Ryan explained the play punch was an ‘affectionate’ gesture. The incident was caught on camera and showed both laughing as Ryan appeared to playfully punch Roxanne as she carried a pile of dirty washing. But she later sobbed in the Diary Room claiming he she had been “punched repeatedly, unprovoked and completely deliberately” by Ryan and called for him to be removed from the Channel 5 show. Roxanne was rumoured to have landed a £750,000 pay packet for the show. She has now been reunited with her fiancé Lee Walton. “I went from being upset to being angry, because a boy has punched me repeatedly, unprovoked,” said Roxanne. “And we weren’t play fighting, there was no banter, it wasn’t a joke,” she claimed in the diary room.
Ryan was issued with a formal warning after CBB bosses reviewed the footage, and the incident sparked a national outcry, with viewers calling for Roxanne to be booted from the show. And Ryan broke down in tears on last night’s live feed, sobbing that his life had been ‘left in tatters’ by the allegations.
The Coens have given us a hilarious, beautifully made, very enjoyable and rather disturbing anthology of stories from the old west, once planned for television but satisfyingly repurposed for the cinema: vignettes that switch with stunning force from picturesque sentimentality to grisly violence. There’s barely a forehead that doesn’t get a bullet in it sooner or later. One or two of the stories don’t have a satisfying twist in the tail; there is one disconcerting fade-out. The tales are prefigured with the sight of an old book, The Ballad of Buster Scruggs. A hand turns the pages and we see these stories in print, themselves prefaced by an illustrated plate previewing a dramatic moment from what’s to come. Remembering this moment is a stab of audience-interest for each particular episode. One turns out to come from the very end of the story.
You are also given just enough time to read some of the text, which is shown again at the end. One appears to tell us something more, something that happens after the story ends on screen. Could a sequel or spin-off be in prospect? Tim Blake Nelson – that longtime Coen repertory player – stars in the opening story as Buster Scruggs, a crooning cowpoke, lonesome singer and icily assured gunslinger who maintains an easily good-humoured, if rather psychopathic down-home courtesy, no matter what stomach-turning events are happening around him. While he’s strumming his guitar, the Coens give us a shot of the inside of his instrument, looking out through the hole. James Franco plays a bank robber who miraculously avoids justice; his remark to a fellow miscreant got the biggest laugh I’ve heard in a cinema this year. Liam Neeson plays a travelling theatrical impresario, a boisterous Ulster Protestant whose star turn is his “wingless thrush”: an unfortunate young man without arms or legs but with a wonderful way of declaiming Shelley and the Gettysburg Address. Tom Waits plays a Walter Huston-type gold prospector who gets into a terrible scrape. And Tyne Daly is a righteous lady on a stagecoach who finds herself confronted with moral turpitude in the form of two bounty hunters seated opposite: the most Tarantinoesque moment in a pretty Tarantinoesque film.
The most heart-rending figure is the unmarried young woman played by Zoe Kazan who joins a wagon train, hoping to make a new life for herself in Oregon. This is a handsomely made picture, with a richly plausible musical score by Carter Burwell; it is an old-school western in many ways and if there is something comic or self-satirising about it, this doesn’t mean it is pure pastiche. There is a commitment to the genre, although the sheer eerie starkness of what is shown has an ironising effect: tiny individual figures making their infinitesimal way through gigantic or iconic landscapes, tiny bars or banks marooned in the middle of the prairie, looming up like mirages. The settlers are always in danger from Native Americans, who are certainly represented as an alien presence – they don’t get a tale – but the white men and women are themselves mostly venal, pompous, greedy and violent. The performances are polished to a gleam: Neeson is great as the huckster, brooding on the awful change he might need to make to his show; Kazan plays it entirely straight as the young woman whose life is about to be turned around and Blake Nelson is superb as the roistering Buster, who thoughtfully imagines what it’s going to be like in heaven looking back at “all the meanness in the used-to-be”. Earthly existence is eventful and not short on laughs.
The Ballad of Buster Scruggs premiered at the Venice film festival. It will be released by Netflix in November.

Jermaine Pennant can no longer flirt with Chloe Ayling but he’s still stirring up trouble in the Celebrity Big Brother house. The former footballer, who has been universally slammed for his behaviour, is clearly trying to distract from his naughty antics. Dan Osborne reveals that Jermaine has annoyed Gabby Allen by seemingly telling her a massive secret. So much so that she has been “off” and “a bit funny with” Dan – but he has no idea why. Venting to his fellow housemates, Dan insists he hasn’t told Jermaine anything controversial, so he must be ‘lying’. Jermaine has been stirring up trouble

She was a bit off with me and I had no idea why. “Basically Jermaine told her that I told him something but he insinuated something to her then basically told her I’ve told him something and I haven’t.

I said I haven’t said anything to wind you up or jeopardise our friendship.” Psychic Sally Morgan asks if he had said something two nights ago when he was drunk.

“What annoys me about is I’m like we have banter all the time and that. How do I know what’s banter and what’s not” *Celebrity Big Brother airs tonight on Channel 5 at 9pm.
Meghan Markle has honed a signature look over the past few months and it usually consists of a modest midi dress or skirt . But she threw caution to the wind for a night out with husband Prince Harry for a special performance of hit musical Hamilton at London’s Victoria Palace theatre.
The Duchess of Sussex, 37, ditched the midi in favour of a mini and wowed in a thigh-skimming double-breasted tuxedo dress by Canadian fashion label Judith & Charles. The hem length may be daring for a royal, but Meghan’s look was young, fresh and sexy.
Showing off her incredibly toned legs, Meghan’s look was a dramatic departure from anything we’ve seen her in recently and it’s nice to see her changing things up a bit. The peak lapelled £327 ‘Digital’ tuxedo dress is currently available on the company’s website and is available in aubergine, black and navy. But as with most things Meghan wears, we can expect there to be a lot of interest and something tells us it won’t be around for long. Meghan opted for the sleek black version and teamed it with a pair of black pointed Paul Andrew ‘Pump-it-up’ heels and a small black clutch. The Duchess wore her hair back in a sleeker version of her signature messy bun, showing off gold Shaun Leane earrings. Meghan chatted with the show’s writer before the show.
It was the couple’s first public engagement for a month and they were guests of honour at the special charity performance. Meghan and Harry are getting to meet the cast and crew on the stage of London’s Victoria Palace Theatre and are set to address the audience alongside the show’s creator Lin-Manuel Miranda. But this isn’t the first time Meghan has seen the musical based on the life of American founding father Alexander Hamilton. It’s actually her third. Meghan and Harry were spotted seated amongst a sell out crowd back in February. And Meghan also saw the show in New York with her friend Priyanka Chopra. Before she deleted her Instagram account Meghan posted a picture of the glamorous pair standing outside the theatre posing with the playbill.
Prince Harry burst into song as he took to the stage after a special charity performance of hip-hop musical Hamilton, leaving the cast and audience thrilled. The Duke of Sussex joked about playing his ancestor King George III in the hit play, which mocks the British monarchy during the founding of modern-day America. He was joined by the Duchess of Sussex and the show’s creator Lin-Manuel Miranda on Wednesday night for a performance to raise money for the duke’s HIV charity, Sentebale.
And, after coming on stage to give an after-show speech, he broke into mock-song with a rendition of You’ll Be Back, which is sung by the George III character. He crooned: “You say…” before cutting himself off and saying to Miranda: “You did try, but I said no.” Miranda told the audience he envisioned the character during his honeymoon, adding: “Smash cut to 2018 I’m sitting next to his sixth-great grandson. Ladies and gentlemen, the Duke of Sussex.” Harry and Meghan meet the cast and crew of Hamilton
After meeting the duke for the first time that evening, he earlier told reporters “you don’t often get a direct descendent” to watch the show set in the 18th century. “The prince’s sixth-great-grandfather is a character so that’ll be fun and surreal for all of us,” he said. Prince Harry shakes the hands of cast and crew members after the charity performance
Harry and Meghan sat among the audience in the royal circle in London’s Victoria Palace Theatre during the show. But after the public had left they went onstage to share their appreciation for the performance with the cast, including the man who played the king. The performance was to raise money for the duke’s HIV charity, Sentebale
Meghan told actors the energy on the night was “palpable”, adding: “It was so engaging, every moment of it.” Harry said: “That was absolutely incredible.” The Duke and Duchess of Sussex take their seats next to Lin Manuel Miranda.
Both had already seen the show, but were hosting the gala performance for Sentebale, which Harry founded with Prince Seeiso of Lesotho after the duke’s gap year there. Nearly £300,000 was said to have been raised through ticket sales and donations for the charity that works to improve prospects for children and young people affected by HIV in southern Africa.
