In The Mix - 6th November


There are two famous faces who have announced their pregnant, with their second children this week. Firstly is ex-spice girl Emma Bunton, she is expecting another baby with her long time partner, former Damage singer Jade Jones. Bunton announced the happy news in a post on her page, writing, "So our family grows, we are SO excited to announce we're having our 2nd baby and Beau's wish for a brother or sister has come true!"

TV Presenter Holly Willoughby also announced the week on This morning, that she is expecting her second child with TV producer and husband Dan Baldwin. The couple got married in 2007 after meeting on children's programme Ministry Of Mayhem. Holly also won Celebrity Mum Of The Year, she beat other contenders such as Coleen Rooney, Dannii Minogue and Samantha Cameron. Holly gave birth to her son Harry last may and her next baby is due in May too. She has said "It really means so much to me to win the award. ... It rounds off a great week for me". More than 32,000 people voted in the competition run by parenting website

It's spokeswoman, Faye Mingo, said: "We are overjoyed that Holly has won. Holly is a great example of being a working mother and having it all. Holly's career is going from strength to strength, from her clothing range to presenting yet she still maintains balance in her family life."

Holly was presented with her award on This Morning by her co-presenter Phillip Schofield.

Taylor Lautner and Lily Collins

Now the news I have now isn't very shocking but may be a bit heartbreaking for the girls out there.

Taylor Lautner has recently been filming a new movie he is to appear in called 'Abduction' and it has been reported that he has been getting very close to co-star Lilly Collins (daughter of Phil Collins)

It has been said they have been dating for around four months since meeting and Lily was won over, even though at the time she has a boyfriend, by the 'Constant flashing of Taylors six pack. Well wouldn't any of us!

A source close to the actors said, "Lily told pals that she wasn't looking to fall in love, but soon realized she had strong romantic feelings. Taylor was smitten from day one, but Lily let him know she was in a relationship with a stuntman who was working on a Steven Spielberg movie in New Mexico. When the boyfriend got suspicious because Lily didn't return calls promptly, he hopped a plane and turned up unannounced to confront her."

Taylor is now filming in Louisiana on 'Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn' and Lily "plans on hanging out there a lot."

Jonathan Ross

I think pretty much every knows that TV host Jonathan Ross was suspend from the BBC in 2008 after leaving inappropriate messages on the answer phone of 'Fawlty Towers' star Andrew Sachs.

But now Channel 4 has taken him on to present a three hour long special programme which gives a countdown of Britain's all-time favourite toys.

Viewers will then be encouraged to vote for their favourite plaything in an online poll.

Jonathan said: "I've finally come to terms that I'm never really going to grow up, so I have decided to openly embrace my love of toys.

"We all have favourites from our childhood. Now thanks to Channel 4 we have the chance to find which really are the nation's favourite toys."

Jonathan is also being lined up to interview troubled singer George Michael in a TV special masterminded by Simon Cowell.

An insider recently explained: "Basically, George will tell all, sing a few classics and remind people why he was a pop god, and Ross reclaims his crown as the man they all want to talk to. It will be a great one-off special."

He said: "She worries, yeah of course. But I don't prank her too much. I tell a lot of funny jokes in front of her though which she doesn't laugh at."

Peter Andre's next single appears to be about his ex-wife, Katie Price

Now a few shows ago I mentioned that one of Katie Prices singles had lyrics which seemed to be aimed at ex-husband Peter Andre. The name of the song was reportedly the words Pete said when his divorce to Katie was finalised, which was "I'm free to love again." But now it seems the Australian born singer has his back as his next single is called 'Mercy On Me', and its lyrics appears to reflect on his relationship with Katie.

Lyrics include: "A fairy tale that fell apart / I'm sorry but my heart's still in two halves. Ever since the day our eyes met / I had made a promise / To be there forever more.... Dear Lord have mercy on me / Cos I can't forgive the things that happened yesterday."

Katie has now remarried to fighter Alex Reid Glamour but had admitted in her latest autobiography that she'd like to meet up with Peter to discuss what went wrong with their union.

Relationship expert Judi James has said : "Katie and Pete are clearly still mad about each other, they will always see themselves as a couple. They are sending out tentacles to each other through their books and music and it's clear that they can't let it drop." Peter is currently on a promotional tour of the UK, but will later in the month tour 'Defender', with support provided by new vocal harmony group The Overtones. And at the moment Katie is promoting her autobiography including going to different Waterstones stores doing signing and I believe she will be at the Romford store on the 25th of November.

Due Date

The premiere of new film Due Date, directed by Todd Phillips, took place this week. Actors such as Robert Downey Jr and The Hang Overs Zach Galifianakis star is this film in which an uptight architect called Peter is forced to hitch a lift across America with eccentric aspiring actor called Ethan, in order to get home in time for the birth of his first child.

Robert said he was attracted to the film because it reminded him of some of his favourite road movies, a genre he had not tackled before. He recalled "The story reminded me of Rain Man and Midnight Run and Trains, Planes And Automobiles, the kind of movies I loved growing up. I hadn't really done anything like that before and I thought it might be nice."

But the Sherlock Holmes and Iron Man Star who attended the premiere with his producer wife Susan Downey, insisted the film brings something new to the genre.

He said: "It has a different frequency and a different take, because honestly I'm really fortunate at this point in my career that I'm not just going to be derivative. And I think that's why Iron Man kind of worked out well, because we did something a little bit different with that genre.

"So we like playing the genres and we like, not trying to improve on them, but just trying to take them in slightly different directions."
