In The Mix - 18th December 2010

Bit of a Christmas theme this week as it was my last show before Christmas! Pixie Lott’s coming home for Christmas Local Brentwood Singer Pixie Lott has had one busy year, but it has been reported she will be spending Christmas at home here in Brentwood with her family. When talking at the new premiere of her film called ‘Fred’, in Leicester Square this week, She said ‘I love the UK too much, I still go home too Brentwood all the time. We’ll be having a big family Christmas in Brentwood.’ When I interviewed Pixie a few months ago we talked about her first ever role in a film and she plays Judy, who is the girl next door and the love interest of Fred, the star of the show. If you want to hear more about the film and the interview then go onto and you can listen back to it and there is a couple of pictures on there too. Lindsay Lohan's Christmas Lindsay Lohan is still currently serving out a three-month, court-ordered stint at the Betty Ford clinic in California and she won't be allowed to leave the state for the holidays. Therefore her family are swapping their traditional New York Christmas for a festive break on America's West Coast so the troubled actress can join in the celebrations. Lindsay’s Mum has said "I will be spending Christmas and New Year's (sic) with all of my children (in California). Ali and Michael Jr.'s birthdays are coming up this month, so we've got to get through those first, but I will be with all of my children this holiday." Christmas Number one From 2005-2008 X-Factor winners have always had the Christmas number one, Shane Ward, Leonia Lewis, Leon Jackson and Alexandra Burke. However last year broke this chain as many people voted for Rage Against The Machine to be number one, and they was. Many people are fed up of X-factor always being number one so again this year a campaign is being done to make sure they don’t get to the top spot again this year. Matt Cardle One X-Factor last Saturday and is favourite to be number one after his debut single 'When We Collide' sold 112,000 copies in the first 24 hours after its release. However a group on Facebook are backing The Trashmen's Surfin' Bird - starring Matt Whistler, who are currently at number three. First made famous by Vietnam war film Full Metal Jacket, the oddball surf rock hit has also featured on US TV show Family Guy. The 'Bird Is The Word For Christmas Number One' campaign on Facebook currently has over 629,000 followers. Matt Whistler has said: "We have ruffled a few feathers in the X factor world and we've rattled a few cages. We're just waiting to flap our wings and elevate into new heights." Another campaign called Cage Against The Machine are also in the top twenty with their cover of composer John Cage's track called 4'33 - featuring four minutes 33 seconds of silence. Featuring Billy Bragg, Mr Hudson, The Kooks and Imogen Heap, the idea behind the release is to ruin Simon Cowell's Christmas. Billy Bragg said: "What we're trying to do is clear a space and try and annoy Simon Cowell. It's become a festive tradition in this country annoying him and the more people that join in the merrier." Lily Allen tries for baby in the New Year We only have a couple weeks until the end of 2010 and 2011 will start! And one celebrity is already looking into 2011 and making plans for it. Singer Lily Allen sadly had miscarriage last month back but her sister Sarah Owen claims Lily wants to get pregnant again in 2011 after taking some time with her boyfriend Sam Cooper to grieve for their tragic loss. Sarah said: "Lily hasn't been in a great place, but she's getting there. It's been a long, hard road. She is in the country with her boyfriend and doing wholesome things. They're going to start trying (for a baby) in the New Year." She also added: "New Year, new start. Losing the baby has totally devastated her, she's still grieving. I didn't realise the impact something like this could have on someone, and as a sister it's been painful to watch." Sarah also insists Lily is more determined than ever to fulfil her dream of becoming a mother as she explained: "Lily won't let this stop her, she is absolutely determined to be a mum. This is what she wants more than anything in the whole wide world, more than her singing career. It's always been her dream." Not only was this the last In The Mix before Christmas, it was the last show of 2010! Therefore I went over some of the celebrity gossip which had happened since July, when In The Mix started. July On my first show in July I broke many boy’s hearts by saying Megan Fox had tied the knot to 90210 actor Brian Austin Green, in Hawaii. The couple got engaged in 2007 but Megan broke it off in 2009. However Brain proposed again and said yes. They got married in the Four Seasons Hotel and stayed in Hawaii for their Honeymoon. It was a very small ceremony with only 6 guests there, not including Megan Fox’s parents! Therefore Brain’s 8 year old son gave Megan away. Megan has said ‘I am more in love with him now than ever!’ August In August a poll was done which had women voting who was the sexiest male? Robert Pattinson who plays vampire Edward Cullen in the Twilight franchise, took first place as number one in the poll of 50 sexiest men 2010, in which over 50,000 people voted! And His co-star Taylor Lautner who plays Jacob follows him in 2nd place. Xavier Samuel who plays Riley and Kellan Lutz who plays Emmet also came in the top five as did Ian Somerhalder who stars in the TV series The Vampire Diaries as Damon. The blood sucking hotties had knocked some of the best well known, good looking guys out of the top ten. Johnny Depp had fallen from second to sixth place, David Beckham from fourth to 21st, Brad Pitt from fifth to 33rd and George Clooney from seventh to 35th! Other stars who had beaten them are also singer Justin Bieber and actors Gerard Butler and Channing Tatum. September In September Big Brother had just finished and Ultimate Big Brother was starting. Brentwod Born star Chantelle had won Big Brother and was going back into thee house withpast housemates Nikki, Victor, Nasty Nick, Ulrika, Brain and ex-husband and ordinary boy Preston. The fact she had been put back in the house with Preston kept viewers gripped to their seats to see if they will get back together. The couple met in the house in 2006 and got married soon after. Unfortunately they then decided to get divorced but Chantelle had admitted, while in the Ultimate Big Brother house, that she still had o feelings for Preston and she realised she had never got over what happened between them. They would have been celebrating their fourth wedding anniversary while in the house which probably didn’t help Chantelle’s feelings. On the other hand it seems like Preston had moved on as he has a new long distance girlfriend who lives in America and even has her name tattooed on his ankle. He had been very supportive of Chantelle in the house when she has got emotional and it has been seen as they have been ‘cosying up’ which didn’t down well with Preston’s current girlfriend. Well they appeared in a few magazines some saying they are together and some saying they wasn’t but it seems all the hype has died down now. October In October I announced that Lady GaGa and Beyoncé had been voted two of the most powerful women in the world. In the list Lady GaGa took seventh place while Beyoncé was at nine. They were beaten by women including first lady Michelle Obama, who took first place, television presenter Oprah Winfrey at three and US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who made fifth place in the list. The singers beat the likes the ex-governor of Alaska Sarah Palin at 16 and Angelina Jolie at 21. November Last month Prince William announced the date of which he and Kate Middleton would marry and that date is the 29th April, the same anniversary as me and my boyfriend! It was also said that the wedding will take place at Westminster Abbey. An aide to Prince William said that the couple had chosen the Abbey, for its “staggering beauty” and because it offers intimacy despite its grand scale. The Abbey is a traditional royal wedding venue as Queen Elizabeth and the late Queen Mother were both married there. The funeral of Prince William’s mother Diana, Princess of Wales, was also held there. On the day, Prince William walked behind his mother’s coffin as it was carried to the Abbey. Price William’s private secretary told reporters “The venue has long associations with the royal family as it is in many ways the royal church and of course with Prince William personally.” December A couple of weeks ago I mentioned that Katie Price and Peter Andre would be Spending Christmas day Together. The couple have two children together, 5-year-old Junior and 3-year-old Princess Tiaamii, while Katie has an 8 year old son called Harvey from a previous relationship who Pete helped look after when they were together. The couple will spend a few hours in each other's company so that they can exchange presents with their children. A source said: "The children are now at an age when they are fully aware of what is going on, so for their sakes Kate and Peter have decided to put on a show of union. "It's been a tough year for them both, but they are determined not to ruin Christmas for the kids. They will both be on their best behaviour." And I would like to wish all Phoenix listeners a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
