This week&]]> The fourth season of Homeland is wrapping up just nicely and ahead of the season finale next week we followed Quinn (Rupert Friend) to find out exactly what he's hoping to achieve. This week's episode opens with Quinn visiting someone from his past, a former lover it seems who works for the German embassy.

Reaching out to her for some help, she provides him with information on the whereabouts of Haqqani (Numan Acar) by using cell phone information. Carrie (Claire Danes) has stayed behind while the rest of the American people returned to the United States after the attack on the embassy by Haqqani and his men. Her decision to stay behind was made to find Quinn and bring him home safely with her.

Tracking him down, she quickly learns that he doesn't want to go anywhere with her until he's achieved what he has set his mind to do - to take down Haqqani and the men who attacked their embassy and killed their people. After learning that Quinn is making a bomb, Carrie is approached by Max (Maury Sterling) who informs her that she has to contact her sister Maggie (Amy Hargreaves) urgently. In doing so Carrie discovers the terrible news that her father, Frank had died overnight after having a stroke. Carrie doesn't know quite how to react and returns to work - trying to bring Quinn back home with her.

What has she found? (Channel 4)

Quinn reaches out to Aayan's friend Kiran (Shavani Seth) at the hospital and provides her with the video footage of Haqqani killing him. He asks her if she will put the video onto the internet for everyone to see. This in turn leads to a mob of angry protesters gathering outside the place where Haqqani is hiding out while in Islamabad. Tasneem (Nimrat Kaur) thinks fast and sends supporters of Haqqani to the area to drive the demonstrators away. All this action provides Quinn with enough time to walk down the street, undetected and drops C-4 into a hold in the ground in front of the opening gate to the hideout. With so many people outside Haqqani's hideout, his people decide it's time to move him and as Quinn is set to blow Haqqani up, he notices Carrie standing in the crowd of people.

He of course doesn't detonate the bomb and instead reaches out to Carrie asking what she's doing there. For a brief moment we thought he was going to do it, something appears to have changed in him. All he wants is revenge. Carrie has a flashback of when Aayan was killed and walking behind Haqqani's procession, she realises that she has the opportunity to take him out herself, right here and now. She takes out her gun but is quickly restrained by Aasar Khan (Raza Jaffrey) who spots her in the distance.

What was he up to? (Channel 4)

The episode ends with Aasar pointing out to Carrie that Dar Adal (F. Murray Abraham) is also in the car with Haqqani - boy were we glad this wasn't the season finale! What is he doing with the enemy!?

The rapper has been targeted by hacking group Anonymous who tweeted her several times making threats against her safety - incluidng one chilling message where they said they would "burn" her if she doesn't make an apology to her rival.

Iggy, 24, was bombarded with messages from the account which has since been deleted. They read: “MESSAGE: @IGGYAZALEA, you have exactly 48 hours from now to release a statement apologizing to @AzealiaBanks and the protesters in NYC… if you do not do so, the memory of you will burn from the public faster than the moment you surfaced. We're not kidding.”

She was then given 48 hours to comply with their demands, but as of yet she has remained silent on her social networking accounts failing to respond. The group have claimed that they have an "x-rated" tape where Iggy is seen in the footage at a younger age. They have threatened to release images of her from the recording which allegedly also involves a man in a “business suit.”

And they claimed that they wouldn't release the full footage of the sex tape just snippets - even though it was allegedly used to to help her secure a recording contract.

<![CDATA[The Apprentice 2014: Mark Wright Becomes Lord Sugar's New Business Partner]]> http://www.entertainmentwise.com/news/163427/The-Apprentice-winner-is-Mark-Wright After twelve grueling weeks of The Apprentice, Lord Sugar finally decided upon his new business partner when he gave the £250,000 investment prize to Mark Wright. In the space of three months, we were introduced to ]]> After twelve grueling weeks of The Apprentice, Lord Sugar finally decided upon his new business partner when he gave the £250,000 investment prize to Mark Wright. In the space of three months, we were introduced to the 20 candidates all vying to be Lord Sugar's next business partner, saw Sarah declare how women should dress to do business, Stephen's sass, Daniel and Mark's arguments and of course skeleton-gate (poor Felipe!).

Despite Mark finding himself in the losing team for the first three weeks and almost getting fired by Lord Sugar when he took on the role of Project Manager for the advertising task in New York, he managed to succeed in reassuring Lord Sugar that his advanced digital marketing company was worth his investment over Bianca Miller's business of creating skin tone tights.

After a final deliberation which showed Nick backing Bianca and Karren backing Mark, Lord Sugar called the finalists back into the boardroom where he gave them another chance to pitch their business ideas. Bianca fought hard as she spoke of her passion for her business and Mark promised that he would work 24/7. But Lord Sugar found a problem with Bianca's plan when he predicted that he would have to "hold her hand" through the manufacturing process. However, after "rolling the dice", the media mogul opted to choose Mark as his business partner. Following the announcement, Lord Sugar warned: "Let's hope he lives up to his promises."

When we asked Mark how he felt about his win, the Australian native said: “Amazing, as you can only start to imagine. It's just like an overwhelming experience. I'm very excited and now I'm starting to think forward about next year and working with Lord Sugar.” But how did Lord Sugar come to his decision?

Some familiar faces returned to the show tonight (BBC Pictures)

After a hiatus from tasks last week when the final five were put through their paces in the annual interviews that take place, tonight saw Lord Sugar challenge Bianca and Mark with the most challenging task to date: to start up their business and pitch it to a room full of experts. But they couldn't do it all alone. So to give them a bit of help, the business mogul welcomed back a handful of the fired candidates and left it up to the two finalists to choose who they wanted on their team. As Bianca went for Katie, Felipe, Lauren and Daniel, Mark went for Solomon, Sarah, Sanjay and James.

With the teams chosen, Bianca and Mark got down to business and set about deciding upon a brand name with members of their team carrying out focus groups. It all started off well with Bianca being told by the managing director of Wolford that her business plan was “fantastic” because she was offering a “clear and unique selling point”, but the price of the tights was a sticking point as Bianca was advised that £35 for pair of tights was probably too high. On the other team and Sanjay was quick to note that Mark needed his own USP to stand out from similar companies in the same market, suggesting that Mark's company should offer his clients a ‘;personal point of contact'.

Bianca got some feedback from Wolford's managing director (BBC Pictures)

Sadly, Bianca's business plan had an issue when Felipe mentioned that the price of the tights would be £24. Let's just say, the focus group weren't too happy with one woman suggesting that tea should be made for her at that price. The packaging was also an issue with another member of the focus group telling Lauren, Felipe and Daniel that she wouldn't pay £5 for the tights in the packaging that they were in. In terms of branding and Mark set about naming his business ‘;Climb Online' whereas Bianca went for True Skin'. Adverts were next and both finalists gave it the personal touch by featuring in them. As Bianca got straight into it, Mark took a little longer when he kept on fluffing up his lines.But sure enough, he finally got it done.

Mark had a few issues getting his lines out (BBC Pictures)

With everything all sorted, it was time for Bianca and Mark to pitch their products and despite all the fears that they both had, the experts were impressed.

If we're honest, it was hard to guess who Lord Sugar was going to hire, but in the end he picked Mark.

Congratulations Mark!

Sir Elton, and David wed in front of their two sons Zachary, three and Elijah, 23 months, as they encouraged their celebrity guests to upload images to their social media accounts using the hashtag #sharethelove so that fans of the couple could feel as much a part of the whole stunning event as possible.

Kourtney Kardashian Shares First Picture And The Name Of Her New Baby Boy]]> http://www.entertainmentwise.com/news/163425/Kourtney-Kardashian-Shares-First-Picture-And-Name-Of-New-Baby- It's been one week since Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick welcomed the arrival of their brand new baby boy and things have remained relatively low key from the family regarding their latest addition. However Kourtney has finally put us all out of our misery and decided to share with us the first snap of the little man, and reveal his name to boot.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star posted a snap on her Instagram page of the tiny one-week old with his hand placed delicately inside hers. She then captioned the posting with an adorable message of love where she also revealed the new sibling for two-year-old Penelope and eldest child Mason, 5, with whom he will share his birthday after he arrived in to the world last Sunday, December 14.

She wrote: "Madly in love with my little Reign Aston Disick." We love this name, ties in perfectly with the rest of their choices of moniker.

Kourtney, 35, and 31-year-old Scott have been seen working out their differences as they argue non-stop on the current series of Kourtney And Khloe Take The Hamptons. In the latest episode she is seen admitting that when she first met Scott she thought he was annoying and jobless - and they joke that not much has changed.

In the preview clip a friend of the couple asks if it was love at first sight when they met to which she replies: “I just thought he was so annoying. He was four years younger, he lived in New York, he didn't have a job," Scott then added: “Three kids later, still no job and still no idea where it's going..." This doesn't quite sound like a perfect relationship does it?

However the pair are likely well past that moment and totally over the moon at having a new little bundle of joy to add to their family just in time for their Christmas celebrations.

<![CDATA[Newly Pregnant Ashlee Simpson And Hubbie Evan Ross Pack On The PDA During Shopping Trip]]> http://www.entertainmentwise.com/news/163424/Ashlee-Simpson-and-Evan-Ross-step-out-after-announcing-pregnancy

They announced the joyous news that they were expecting their first child together just days ago and it looks like Ashlee Simpson and Evan Ross are still on a happiness high as the pair packed on the PDA during a recent shopping trip.

The couple – who have been married for four months – revealed that they were expecting two days ago and seemed blissfully happy while out to breakfast in Beverly Hills, before hitting the shops for some last-minute Christmas shopping yesterday (Dec. 20).

Evan acted like a true gentleman, and a doting husband, during the day out as he was pictured opening both car and shop doors for his expectant wife as they visited Decades in West Hollywood for some retail therapy. The duo looked to be in the mood to splash some serious cash too, as they browsed at some of the store's most expensive handbags.

The Pieces of Me singer dressed her bump in a pair of black skinny jeans with a long striped top and a black fur coat. She finished the look with a pair of black buckled angle boots, a large leather handbag and some over-sized sunnies. Evan opted for a more casual style in a large jumper, which was emblazoned with a wolf motif.

Last month Evan revealed to UsWeekly that he was hoping to have children with Ashlee, who already has a six-year-old son, Bronx Mowgli, with her ex partner Pete Wentz. “I would love to,” the actor revealed when asked if he and his wife were planning to start a family, adding that he wants “as many as possible.”

<![CDATA[Kanye West Eager To Shun Kris Jenner's Casino-Themed Christmas Eve Party?]]> http://www.entertainmentwise.com/news/163423/Kanye-West-isnt-down-for-Kris-Jenners-Christmas-plans Kris Jenner is reportedly going all out on the Kardashian/Jenner Christmas Eve party this year, but while the family spend all year looking forward to their annual bash it seems there&]]> Kris Jenner is reportedly going all out on the Kardashian/Jenner Christmas Eve party this year, but while the family spend all year looking forward to their annual bash it seems there's one member of the family that isn't too fussed about attending the soiree, Kris' son-in-law Kanye West.

The family matriarch is said to have outdone herself this Christmas period, splurging out on over £900 on silk nightwear for each of her children; Kim, Kourtney, Kendall, Kylie, Khloe ad Rob, but her lavish ways don't end there.

“The party is the highlight of the Kardashian calender. This year, Kris is having a casino set up and there will be a 10ft buffet of Christmas food with all the trimmings,” a source told Closer. “They have a strict wake-up call at 6am on Christmas morning for gift opening. Kris even hires an assistant to separate all the presents into piles and give them out, then clear away the rubbish.”

Kris is reportedly going all out this Christmas! (WENN)

The 59-year-old is also said to have hired carol singers and a Santa Claus to keep her grandchildren, North, 1, Mason, 5, Penelope, 2, and Kourtney's not-yet-named newborn son, entertained during the early morning celebrations. “The singers belt out songs from the moment the family wakeup until after presents are opened,” the insider added. “After presents, they all enjoy a big breakfast, where they have a long-running tradition of who makes what. Every year Kris whips up her famous French toast, while Kourtney makes a traditional Armenian pancake called Beeshee.”

It's also been claimed that Khloe's ex Lamar Odom will be over for the special day, despite her family's fears that it could be a bad idea, though this has not been confirmed. One man who reportedly isn't too keen to participate in the Christmas fun is Kim's rapper husband Kanye, who would allegedly rather spend the festive period in Paris.

It's been reported that the Bound 2 hit maker isn't bothered about spending the holiday with his in-laws and would rather spend it with his wife and daughter alone. “Even though Christmas is a time for family, Kanye doesn't want to spend the holiday with Kim's family at Kris' house,” an insider told Radar Online. “Kris always has a huge party on Christmas Eve, and Kanye just isn't feeling it this year. He wants to go to Paris with Kim and North. This would allow him to spend time with them, and also work.”

But despite her husband's alleged desire to spend Christmas abroad, Kim is apparently against the idea. “Kim absolutely refuses to even consider spending Christmas in Paris,” the source continued. “She said there will be no way North would be away from the cousins.”

Cheeky!

Whilst promoting her current movie Unbroken, the Academy Award-winning star admitted that it was easy filming intimate scenes because they were doing them with each other and Pitt knows exactly what his lady wants, according to ABC News.

The movie -- which tells the story of a couple attempting to save their marriage after several failed attempts -- sees the the Hollywood power couple partake in a steamy sex scene, that was directed by Jolie herself, in order to try and rekindle their romance.

“I was the other person in the love scene, so it wasn't that hard. He knows what I need. He's always known,” she admitted. The Maleficent star and her Fury actor husband also wrote much of the new movie, prompting rumours that the story was inspired by their marriage -- though Ange has since blasted rumours that their marriage is in turmoil. “Yes, we spent our honeymoon playing two people in a terrible marriage, I'm sure a therapist would have a field day analyzing the films I choose to do. But it's been 10 years since Brad and I have worked together. It felt like it was time.”

She continued: “I haven't thought that way for years. Because then you can't make a creative move if you're conscious of all different interpretations. We wanted to be free and we wanted to play. It's a very creative film. We wanted to try things, so we intentionally made bold decisions… we just wanted to be artists and play.”

N Sync's Lance Bass has finally tied the not to long-term boyfriend Michael Turchin, with the couple marrying in a luxury ceremony in Los Angeles.

Bass, 35, and the artist said their vows in front of 300 guests at the Legendary Park Plaza Hotel last night (Dec. 20). The Tearin' Up My Heart hit maker's former bandmate JC Chasez was also on hand to perform a special rendition of Can't Help Falling in Love for the newlyweds, according to the New York Times.

Chasez wasn't the only N Sync star there to celebrate the duo's big day. Joey Fatone and Chris Kirkpatrick also joined them, although Justin Timberlake was unable to attend because of touring commitments. Other high-profile guests included Kris Jenner, Christina Applegate and The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump.

Earlier in the day, Bass shared an adorable picture to Instagram with the caption: “Today I marry the man of my dreams. He makes me smile; he makes my heart melt; he makes me….me. #LanceLovesMichael”.

Lance has tied the knot to longtime beau Michael Turchin (WENN)

Lance first popped the question to Michael in September 1 2013, but decided to propose again exactly a year later to celebrate the anniversary of his initial proposal – he even went out and bought another shiny new ring! “Who gets proposed to a second time on the first anniversary of the first proposal?? This guy!!!” Turchin Instagrammed with a picture of his new bling at the time.

“He said YES!! Love this man @michaelturchinart,” Bass wrote alongside a photo of himself and his then-fiance, showing off his gold engagement band. “Happiest guy in the world,” Turchin added.

The lovers began dating in December 2011. Their wedding will also be televised in a 90 minute E! special in February.

Kris Jenner will be spending Christmas with her ex-husband Bruce Jennerdespite the former couple recently finalising their divorce.

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians stars officially ended their marriage last Thursday, but will still spend Christmas with their children at Kris' home because, as she puts it, they're “still family”.

Kris, often referred to as the family “momager”, said, “Things are really good. I mean, it's kind of surprising, and we work together, and we talk all the time and he'll be there on Christmas. We're still family.”

The 59-year-old also blasted rumours that she would be changing her surname, admitting that it would be “weird” because the couple's daughters, Kendall, 19, and Kylie, 17, also share the surname Jenner.

The TV personality told E! News: “I have two kids with the last name Jenner, so I think that would be weird. Like, ‘;Oh guys, I'm changing it back to Kardashian.' I think I'm just gonna leave it alone for now and enjoy. I'm fine. I'm good.”

It's good to see the divorcee's split has ended amicably, particularly after reports revealed that Kris paid Bruce $2.5 million to equalise their assets. Kris and her 65-year-old ex -– who were married for 22 years – are believed to have divided their $60 million fortune in half. The divorce has been signed off by a judge but will not come into effect until March 23, 2015, owing to a six-month legal requirement.

<![CDATA[Fancy Being Treated By Taylor Swift This Christmas? One Lucky Fan Reveals How!]]> http://www.entertainmentwise.com/news/163419/Taylor-Swift-gives-Christmas-gifts-to-fans

Pop star Taylor Swift is quickly rivalling Santa Claus as she continues to send her biggest fans exciting gifts to celebrate the festive season.

We're not quite sure whether the fact that Swift's album is currently sitting comfortably at the top of the US chart is prompting the 25-year-old's surge of generosity, or it could be that she's been named Billboard's Woman of the Year, or perhaps it's the recent news that the star is currently gearing up for another international tour – whatever it is, the Blank Space hit maker is feeling super generous this Christmas!

The Grammy-winning artist has been inviting social media followers that she has “cyber-stalked” online to her home for 1989 listening parties and her charitable ways don't end there. Swifty has also surprised a superfan by hand-delivering her toddler son a mini Mercedes. What's next on Taylor's festive agenda?

So, the question on everybody's lips is… how do we get spoiled by Taylor this Christmas? Well, primary school teacher Katie Mullins, from Tucson, Arizona, reckons she knows how – and we definitely think she's worth listening to given that she was one of the singer's lucky gift-receivers. “From the very beginning, her first song, they've always been the kind of songs that you can dance with your girlfriends to and sing along with,” she told People. “You can tell it's really genuine everything she writes. It's not contrived in any way. She's just so charming, her personality, the fact that she does crazy stuff like this, it's crazy. I think it's great that she's so grown and evolved… but it's still her. All the songs have their own Taylor character.”

Swift is quickly turning into Santa Claus this Christmas! (WENN)

On Nov. 25, Christmas came early for the superfan as Swift's elves left a giant package at her door. Inside the box was a letter, a Polaroid and more than a dozen personalised presents, all with handwritten notes. The package also contained a set of Bluetooth speakers, makeup, jewelry, a candle and cookies to a signed poster for her classroom and a box full of hair accessories. “I noticed that you love wearing headbands, so OOPS I bought you every one in the store,” the star wrote in the letter. Jealous much?

So how did Mullins go about getting noticed by Swift? The fan says she listened to 1989 every day while driving to and from school – even the album's bonus track voice memos, which reveal the star's song writing process for sings like I Know Places. After listening to the album every day, without fail, Mullins eventually learnt the words to every single track -- and used it to her advantage. After lip-syncing to one of the memos and uploading it to Tumblr, a site Swift has openly admitted being obsessed with, Mullins caught the singer's eye.

“It was so silly! I made this video, but I didn't expect anything to happen. I have like no followers,” Mullins said. “A few people started re-blogging it, and I was like, ‘;Oh, apparently this is funny!'” Swift agreed, later re-blogging the clip and writing, “Standing ovation for Katie, as this is one of the greatest things I've ever seen.”

Mullins was later contacted for her address and, days later, her gifts arrived. “It was the greatest thing in my life,” she said. “I'll never understand why she picked me to send the package to, because I feel like there are so many incredible and devoted people that are online, and it was just amazing.”

In Week 7 the former Xtra Factor host was in the Bottom Two, but gradually sailed back from the brink and, across the final four weeks, consistently topped the leaderboard. She won four perfect 40 scores, THREE of which were delivered tonight alone - including for her phenomenal Showdance to Beverley Knight's version of Robbie Williams' 'Angels'.

The victory meant that Simon Webbe with Kristina Rihanoff and Frankie Bridge with Kevin Clifton were runners-up, after Mark Wright and Karen Hauer were earlier eliminated in fourth place. In recent years the BBC have opted not to reveal who exactly polled second and who third, although we can perhaps expect it to leak in the coming days.

Webbe and Bridge also performed incredibly; with Webbe scoring a 40/40 score for the Argentine Tango he had first knocked out the park in Blackpool in Week 8. Bridge, meanwhile, was the only star to make it to the final without ever competing in the Dance-Off.

Caroline's victory was a first for Pasha, who was in the final for the third time out of four series'. He previously came second with Chelsee Healey and made the Top 3 with Kimberley Walsh; while his 2013 partner, Rachel Riley, is now his girlfriend.

It's been another fantastic year for the BBC's darling show, which regularly trounced The X Factor in the ratings once again. Claudia Winkleman, replacing Bruce Forsyth as Tess Daly's co-host, was met with a hugely positive reaction. We will miss her Bill Payer jokes immensely.

Watch Caroline's sensational Showdance below.

The latest in a number of leaked emails between Sony Entertainment employees has revealed that Idris Elba is a Sony executive's favourite to replace Daniel Craig as 007.

Amy Pascal, the co-chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment, said in an email that Elba, 42, “should be the next Bond,” according to the Daily Beast. The British star, who has appeared in hit TV shows The Wire and Luther, has been recommended to play Bond before.

Earlier in the year, actor Jamie Foxx said that the Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom star would make the perfect Bond. “I ran into Idris and said, ‘;You know you're the mother******* Bond, right.”

Elba has previously said that he would be interested in taking the role, and it looks like the chance could finally arise in the not too distant future. Daniel Craig, who has played Bond since Casino Royale in 2006 has previously hinted at a desire to leave. “I've been trying to get out of this from the very moment I got into it. But they won't let me go, and I've agreed to do a couple more, but let's see how this one does, because business to business and if the s**t goes down, I've got a contract that somebody will happily wipe their a** with.”

Would Idris make a good Bond? (WENN)

Craig's latest Bond movie, Spectre, will hit theatres on Nov. 16 2015, with the actor signed on to do one more after that, which total five films, one more than his predecessor Pierce Brosnan.

Speaking to US radio station NPR in 2011 about the prospect of playing Bond, Elba said: “If Sony decided to call me and said hey, we wanted to do [James Bond], I'd definitely consider it.”

<![CDATA[Who Will Win Strictly Come Dancing 2014?]]> http://www.entertainmentwise.com/news/163416/Strictly-Come-Dancing-Caroline-and-Pasha-score-perfect-80-points It's the week everyone's been waiting for, it's the finale of Strictly Come Dancing 2014, and with only four couples left everything was to play for! What better way to open the show then from a performance ]]> It's the week everyone's been waiting for, it's the finale of Strictly Come Dancing 2014, and with only four couples left everything was to play for! What better way to open the show then from a performance from the Strictly professionals!! Although who are we to call the celebrities anything other than professional after the journey they have taken in the competition!

The first round was 'Judge's Choice' and each of the couples were dreading the decisions that had been made! First to dance was Frankie and Kevin, who had been chosen to dance their Samba again. Craig didn't hold back on just how many mistakes were made in the routine the first time round, so Frankie really had to step up and show just how much she had improved! Luckily enough the routine went so much better the second time round, and she finished with the biggest smile on her face! It wasn't enough to tease a ten out of Craig, but she did manage to score a near-perfect 39 points!

Next to dance was Mark and Karen, who were given their Cha Cha from week one! Now Mark really has come on leaps and bounds since week one, and it's clear for anyone to see just how far he has come! So much so that after tonight's re-performance of the Cha Cha, Craig spoke of just how brilliant it is to watch him now! He did also say how "amazing it is to see someone come from the dance gutted to the Strictly final!" (We're sure there was a compliment in there somewhere!) The judges scored 35, which for Mark was pretty spot on! The permanent smile on his face shows just how much he enjoys being on that dancefloor, and although he may be the weakest dancer of the four finalists, he's definitely given the most over the past 13 weeks!

Mark performed well (BBC Pictures)

Caroline and Pasha were next to take to the floor, and it seems that these are now the one's to watch! We're not sure just how far into the competition it was, but Caroline has now become the dark horse and after her perfect score of 40 last week we can really see why! The judges chose Caroline's Cha Cha from week one, and although she is incredible now it seems looking back at her first performance she has improved massively! Len described her first performance as having "no rhythm at all", which makes you wonder why she's still in the competition, or where the Caroline we saw in the first week has actually gone!!! Once again, the judges gave her a perfect score of 40 - her second of the competition! If she can carry on scoring as well as she is doing, she's a definite winner in our eyes!

Last to take on the judge's choice were Simon and Kristina, and dressed as the pearly king and queen of Strictly they performed their Charleston from week four! The judges chose this performance, not because of the improvement they felt that could be made, but because this was the routine that became the turning point for Simon; the week that finally some personality was injected into him! They scored him a near-perfect 39 and Len gave him a series of cockney based compliments saying he was a "sight for his mince pies" and it put a "smile on his boatrace"! Wise words from Len as always!

Frankie and Kevin Got Happy in their Showdance (BBC Pictures)

With the first round out of the way, it was now time for the Showdance round where all the rules are out of the window! A chance for the professional partners to create a routine in which they well and truly show off their celebrity in every which way possible! First to perform were Frankie and Kevin, paying homage to Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers in a beautiful routine to Judy Garland's 'Get Happy'! And it really did make us happy! Although the section on the bench gave Craig something to really moan about (there's always something though right?!). He even compared the piece to "training a horse"! Something we're sure Frankie was not too pleased about! However, he really did love the performance and if it wasn't for the benches he might have given them a 10! Frankie scored a 39 meaning they were back in the running to take away the trophy!

Second to show off their moves was Mark and Karen. And after possibly one of the most energetic dances of the whole show, we were left out of breath! Both Mark and Karen collapsed to the floor in exhaustion as they used every space of the floor imaginable! Mark could not take the smile off his face once again, "that performance has summed up my whole Strictly experience! Coming out here and having a good time!" It seems all he's wanted to do is enjoy himself and entertain the audience! And he has!! Scoring another 35, Mark may not be the best dancer in the final, but he certainly has given it his all!

Caroline and Pasha's moving performance of 'Angels' (BBC Pictures)

Next to take the floor was little miss Caroline Flack, as she tried to keep things simple and slow instead of throwing as many moves into a upbeat routine! And it paid off! Performing bare-foot and dancing to 'Angels' the audience was speechless, you could practically hear a pin drop it was so beautiful! And the judges were all well and truly blown away by it, awarding her ANOTHER perfect score - her third in a row now! At this rate she will most definitely take home the trophy; but it's all down to the public votes now!

Last to dance their showdance was Simon and Kristina, who went from red suit jackets to sparkly silver in a matter of seconds! Again another dancer who really has come on leaps and bounds he gave it his all once more. The performance was described as "a showdance we'll never forget!" But was it enough to see them through to the final?

We'll have to wait until the results to see!

<![CDATA[Cameron Diaz And Benji Madden Ready To Tie The Knot?]]> http://www.entertainmentwise.com/news/163415/Cameron-Diaz-engaged-to-Benji-Madden Reports are claiming that Cameron Diaz is engaged to her current rocker boyfriend Benji Madden.

Reports are claiming that Cameron Diaz is engaged to her current rocker boyfriend Benji Madden.

The Annie actress has been dating the Good Charlotte star for the past seven months and it seems the couple are wasting no time following claims they're already engaged. Diaz has previously had high-profile relationships with Justin Timberlake and Alex Rodriguez, could she have finally found the one?

“Everyone thinks it's wild but are so happy for them,” a source told Us Weekly. “Benji always tends to fall in love easily, but this time it's for real and he landed a great girl. They obviously both make each other incredibly happy and there's nothing better than that.”

In September, a friend of the lovebirds revealed to Us that Madden was keen to ensure his relationship with Cameron was the real deal, and things don't get more real than marriage! “He is more traditional than her,” the pal said. “She really doesn't care about getting married but wants babies. He wants to get engaged and married first.”

Is Cameron finally ready to settle down? (WENN)

It's been claimed that the Other Woman actress' potential sister-in-law Nicole Richie – who has married to Benji's twin brother Joel – is to thank for their happiness. “I approve of anything that's going to make Benji happy,” the mum-of-two told Watch What Happens Live's Andy Cohen in July. And when asked if she was responsible for the pairing, she said, “Yes! I'm going to take responsibility for everything!”

We reckon Cameron's mother will also be pleased about the couple's rumoured engagement, given that she's said to be a big fan of the rock star. “Billie has been gushing about Cameron's new relationship,” another source told the publication. “She absolutely loves Benji and she hopes this is the man her daughter will finally settle down with.”

The 42-year-old fuelled reports that the pair are planning to tie the knot on Wednesday (Dec. 17) when she was seen walking through JFK airport with her beau and a sparkly band on her left hand. The star was also seen flaunting the ring on an episode of The Graham Norton Show on Tuesday (Dec. 16). She wore the corker with another skinnier gold ring on the same finger.

<![CDATA[Madonna Treats Fans With Six New Early Song Releases]]> http://www.entertainmentwise.com/news/163414/Madonna-releases-six-Rebel-Hearts-songs-after-leaks Christmas has come early for Madonna fans as they have been treated to six tracks from her upcoming album.

Her 13th album, Rebel Heart, wasn't due to be released until Spring 2015, ]]> Christmas has come early for Madonna fans as they have been treated to six tracks from her upcoming album.

Her 13th album, Rebel Heart, wasn't due to be released until Spring 2015, but after several demos were leaked online, the 56-year-old decided to release six official versions of the songs via iTunes on Saturday morning. More tracks will be made available February 9th, whilst the full album will be released in the first week of March.

In a statement, Madge explained the songs were an “early Christmas gift” for her dedicated fans, saying, "I was hoping to release my new single 'Living for Love' on Valentine's Day with the rest of the album coming in the spring. I would prefer my fans to hear completed versions of some of the songs instead of the incomplete tracks that are circulating. Please consider these six songs as an early Christmas gift.”

Madonna gave her fans an early Christmas present (FameFlynet)

And it wasn't just Madonna's songs that were leaked online, as the star was hit with another scandal in November, when untouched images from a photoshoot with Interview magazine made their way onto the web. The snaps showed the athletic singer looking far more tired and haggard than we're used to seeing her, but Madge hit back, pleading with her fans not to share any more of her leaked material.

Posting one of the images on Instagram, she wrote, "I am asking my true fans and supporters who respect me as an artist and a human to not get involved with the purchasing trading or posting of unreleased images or music. I hope and pray we find the source of the leaks soon. Until then i am grateful for any leads or info and even more grateful for your support and loyalty! Please let me finish my work so i can give you my very best!"

Luckily, her dedicated fans have been rewarded for their patience with the new tracks, which include, Living for Love, Devil Pray, Ghosttown, Unapologetic Bitch, the Kanye West produced Illuminati and ‘;Bitch I'm Madonna featuring Nicki Minaj.

<![CDATA[Ciara Puts On A Brave Face For Her Son After Splitting With Future Again]]> http://www.entertainmentwise.com/news/163413/Ciara-at-LAX-with-her-son-after-splitting-from-fiance-Future Ciara put on a brave face for her seven-month old son Future Zahir Wilburn on Friday after splitting with his daddy and her fiance Future.

The yummy yummy strutted through LAX in black leggings ]]> Ciara put on a brave face for her seven-month old son Future Zahir Wilburn on Friday after splitting with his daddy and her fiance Future.

The yummy yummy strutted through LAX in black leggings and a thick coat as she held on to her adorable son who was clad in little beige boots, chinos and a cute mini varsity jacket. But despite going through a tough break up, the 29-year-old was still able to muster a smile as she caught a flight out of Los Angeles.

Ciara and Future have been struggling to rebuild their relationship for months, following allegations that he cheated. And although the Goodies hitmaker refused to speak out about the claims, an insider told E! News that she had been left "humiliated" by all the reports.

The couple got engaged back in 2013 and just one month before he was believed to have cheated, Ciara added to her humiliation by gushing to Brides about her newfound love."Our label put us together," she told the mag in July about meeting her now ex. "I went into the studio strictly to work, but he was very calm and sweet, a gentleman… I knew right away that he was different. Now he's my best friend in the world, my partner."

Unfortunately, things have now turned sour for the pair and after months of trying to rekindle their relationship, the couple have finally called it quits. "They tried to work things out between them but it could not be saved," a source revealed. "Ciara could not get over what had happened. She is focusing on her baby and friends now. Her baby is the most important person in her life."

But whilst things may not have worked out between them they have decided to keep things “civil” so that Future can spend time with his son. "He is a great father," the source continued. "They want to keep things civil for the baby."

Ciara ditched her engagement ring back when the cheating allegations started, and now the star has gone one step further and has decided to laser off a tattoo she has in honour of the rapper. Her ring finger currently bears the letter 'N' for Nayvadius – Future's first name - but it won't for much longer. "She is in the process of removing her tattoo at this time," the source revealed.

<![CDATA[Oh Baby! Mila Kunis And Ashton Kutcher Take A Break From Parenthood To Pile On The PDA]]> http://www.entertainmentwise.com/news/163412/Mila-Kunis-and-Ashton-Kutcher-have-a-date-night-without-daughter-Wyatt Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher may be the proud new parents of Wyatt Isabelle, but that didn't stop them from enjoying a well-deserved ]]> Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher may be the proud new parents of Wyatt Isabelle, but that didn't stop them from enjoying a well-deserved rest from their newborn as they enjoyed a rare evening out on Friday night.

The pair welcomed their daughter back in October, but spent the night taking a little break from changing nappies and playing peekaboo, as they settled in to watch the Lakers take on Oklahoma City Thunder at the Staples Centre in Downtown Los Angeles.

Mila and Ashton enjoyed a date night at the Lakers game (Splash News)

Mila 31, proved she was definitely a yummy mummy in a plunging beige top that she teamed with skinny jeans and brown boots, whilst Ashton, 36, also dressed down in a grey sweater and jeans. But whilst the pair had a great view of the action from their courtside seats, the couple seemed far more interested in each other, leaning in for cuddles and kisses throughout the game.

We don't blame them for using their rare moment alone to get intimate, as the pair certainly have their hands full at home, after they deciding against hiring a nanny to help care for their little one. Ashton explained why they were opting to go it alone with raising their child, saying, "We just want to know our kid. We want to be the people that know what to do when the baby's crying to make the baby not cry anymore. I think the only way to do that is by being the one who's there."

The couple kept leaning in for kisses (Splash News)

He also revealed that Mila had adjusted to parenthood surprisingly well, calling her the "greatest mum." Speaking to Ellen DeGeneres, he said, "The most amazing thing about having a baby is my partner, Mila. She's the greatest mum. I go to work every day and I come home and she's like perfect. And it just seems like everything went amazing and I know that something probably didn't go amazing, but she never complains."

And the Black Swan star has good reason to spend so much time around little Wyatt as she revealed how she's planning to raise her daughter. "I just don't want my kids to be a**holes,” she told Marie Claire. “I feel like so many kids nowadays are. Both of us just want to have well-behaved, honest, nice children who people meet and say, 'That's a good kid.'”

<![CDATA[Uh Oh! Has Harry Styles Been Hitting On Simon Cowell's Ex-Girlfriend?]]> http://www.entertainmentwise.com/news/163411/Harry-Styles-flirts-with-Sinitta We all know that Harry Styles has a thing for older ladies, but somehow we doubt Sinitta's claims that he hits on her “all the time.”

The 46-year-old singer ]]> We all know that Harry Styles has a thing for older ladies, but somehow we doubt Sinitta's claims that he hits on her “all the time.”

The 46-year-old singer told Closer magazine that the curly haired hottie is a a “horny little devil,” adding that the's very flirtatious whenever they meet. But whilst Harry, 20, has previously dated the likes of 35-year-old Caroline Flack and DJ Lucy Horobin, 34, we reckon his 'flirting' with Sinitta is little more than harmless fun.

Surely Harry wouldn't risk upsetting his mentor, Simon (WENN)

The One Direction singer may have a bit of a reputation for dating cougars, but he previously denied that he seeks them out. Speaking on Aussie show, Sunrise, he revealed, “It's not about how old someone is, I don't like old women, it's not like a weird thing. It depends who I get on with, it doesn't matter if they're a little bit older than me.”

And not only is Sinitta a whole 26 years older, but he'd also risk seriously annoying his boss, Simon Cowell, who famously dated the star back back in the 80s. But this isn't the first time the So Macho hitmaker has claimed to be the object of Harry's affection. Back in July she told Star magazine, “I'm aware I looked young for my age when One Direction were on The X Factor and I remember having to remind him that I was old enough to be his mother! For me, he's definitely forbidden fruit.”

Could this be Harry's next girlfriend? (WENN)

But if Harry is seriously considering going after the pop icon, then we're sure he'd be delighted to learn about her new fitness regime. ''I've just taken up pole dancing so my muscles are really defined at the moment - move aside Beyonce!'' she explained. And if that's not enough to entice the the 1D heartthrob, Sinitta also opened up about her sex life, explaining, ''I have always been a romantic. But, like with sex, things get better with age - you know what you want and feel happier expressing yourself.''

Now whilst we'd LOVE to see 'Sinarry' or 'Hanitta' happen, sadly we think this frisky flirtatious vibe may all be in Sinitta's head. After all, this is the woman who thought it'd be a good idea to help Simon judge potential X Factor contestants wearing only some strategically placed palm leaves...

<![CDATA[It's A Girl! Kristen Bell And Dax Shepard Welcome Their Second Child]]> http://www.entertainmentwise.com/news/163410/Kristen-Bell-and-Dax-Shepard-Welcome-Baby-Girl-Delta Huge congratulations are in order for Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard who have welcomed their second child together, a daughter named Delta.

Dax, 39, announced the news on Twitter on Friday, posting, &]]> Huge congratulations are in order for Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard who have welcomed their second child together, a daughter named Delta.

Dax, 39, announced the news on Twitter on Friday, posting, “Delta Bell Shepard is here. She doesn't look like either @IMKristenBell or me, but we're gonna keep her anyway. #christmascameearly.”

Congratulations Dax and Kristen! (FameFlynet)

Kristen, 34, then tweeted, “The estrogen has now hit critical mass! Good luck, @daxshepard1. And welcome to the world DELTA BELL SHEPARD :).” But although the tweet was accompanied by a picture, it wasn't of her little bundle of joy, but instead a rather bizarre snap of a gorilla clutching its baby's hand. Now we know that Kristen's favourite animal is sloths, so we reckon the odd pic was in reference to a tweet she posted at the beginning of the month, when she joked that her water weight was making her look like a giant monkey!

The Frozen star announced she was expecting back in June, and now Delta has arrived to be the perfect early Christmas pressie for the couple and their first daughter, 21-month-old Lincoln. But whilst they may have two babies living under their roof, Dax revealed that there could soon be another adorable little addition on the way. "We're building a circus," he joked during a recent appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. "Eventually, we want to get in a band and tour the country."

Kristen posted this sweet snap when she announced the birth (Kristen Bell/Twitter)

Kristen, meanwhile, opened up on how they had prepared for life as parents before having their first child, revealing that they decided to tru out parenthood by adopting some pets! "Dax and I made a pact that we'd be second-child parents," she told RedBook, "We wouldn't take all that nervous energy out on our first [child]. Instead we took it out on our dogs!"
