Bookmaker Ladbrokes are now offering odds of 2/1 for both Natalie and Sophie to waltz off with the Glitterball trophy this year, and though Sophie hasn’t topped the leader board, the bookies have still been bombarded with bets for the Murder on the Dance Floor star. Read more & comment »
This year’s series of I’m A Celebrity has, in my opinion, been one of the best yet, and there literally hasn’t been one dull episode…

Emmerdale actress Lucy Pargeter has narrowly missed out on being in the final of this year’s I’m A Celebrity, and as fans of the show will know, she was booted last night, leaving only David Emanuel and Kian Egan in camp.

We reported recently that James Jordan was livid after learning that he and wife Ola would not be joining other Strictly Come Dancing pro-dancers on the show’s forthcoming tour…

So it’s come as little surprise to learn that Ola has revealed that she’s uncertain about her future on the show, and has said, “I don’t know if I’m going to be in the next series because the decision hasn’t been made yet from the BBC side and from my side.” Read more & comment »
