Glowing: Amanda Holden put a protective hand on her baby bump - but kept it under wraps - as she arrived for Britain's Got Talent auditions

She's finally able to be open about her pregnancy after months of secrecy.

But Amanda Holden declined to give fans a glimpse of her baby bump as she arrived for the first auditions for the new series of Britain's Got Talent in London today.

The 39-year-old, who revealed she is expecting a baby boy in March, covered up her burgeoning belly in a fuchsia coat with a giant bow strategically placed at her midriff.

Showing pregnancy isn't affecting her passion for fashion, Holden teetered in a pair of towering patent Mary Jane heels and carried a baby pink quilted Chanel handbag.

Writing on her Twitter ahead of the auditions at the Hammersmith Apollo, Holden revealed new judge David Hasselhoff would not be joining her on the panel and Louis Walsh would be covering for the ex-Baywatch star.

She said: 'Getting ready for BGT! Stomach churning! Micheal and Louis today. Think The Hoff is still "giving his Hook".'

Once inside, she Tweeted: 'Five mins until we're on stage! Micheal is pacing, I'm eating and Louis is checking his quiff.'

New judge, comedian McIntyre was given a huge welcome by the thousands of auditionees queuing outside, who chanted his name as he entered the building.

Despite expecting to give birth to her second child in March, Holden insisted it would not affect her work commitments for Britain's Got Talent and starring in the new West End production of Shrek: The Musical.

Holden will play Princess Fiona at Drury Lane when the show opens in May.

'Michael, Michael, Michael': New judge McIntyre was greeted by cheers and whistles from the crowd

The former Cutting It star will film the Britain's Got Talent Series 5 auditions over the next weeks, before returning to the judging panel in late May in time for the live shows.

The blonde TV star announced on Sunday that she and husband Chris Hughes, 37, were expecting their second child together.

She explained she waited so long to announce her pregnancy after she tragically suffered a miscarriage last year.

The couple, who married in December 2008, are already parents to daughter Alexa, aka Lexi, who turns five later this month.

Writing on her Twitter page on Sunday, she said: 'Just to let you know. I am 6 months pregnant with a baby boy!! Have had to keep it quiet until now!'

In a statement on her official website, Holden revealed her secret heartbreak last year after losing her unborn child.

Doting mother: Holden with her daughter Lexi, who turns five this month

It read: 'Amanda Holden and her husband Chris Hughes are delighted to announce that Amanda is 6 months pregnant with their second child.

'Their delight is increased by the fact that last year she tragically lost a baby.
'As they are sure everyone will understand they needed to get the all clear from the doctor before they shared their very happy news.'

In an interview last year, Holden admitted she had started getting broody.

She said: 'I'd love to have more children. I'm 39 so I'd be very lucky, I've got lots of friends who have waited too long. If it happens it happens. But I'm blessed with one.'

The former Cutting It actress married music executive Hughes at Babington House in Somerset in December 2008 after a five year courtship.

The couple announced their engagement in December 2004, but delayed their wedding after Holden fell pregnant with Alexa, who was born in January 2006.

'Thank God David doesn't always look perfect,' admits a relieved Victoria Beckham as she covers British Vogue




Telling all: Victoria Beckham recalls a morning husband David looked like 'c**p' in the new issue of Vogue magazine

Victoria Beckham has been unwavering in her love and devotion for husband David after 11 years of marriage.

But despite his athletic figure and metrosexual appearance, the former Spice Girl admits even he has his off days.

Just months after Posh declared her husband looked 'naturally good all the time', she appears to have changed her mind.

In a new interview with the UK edition of Vogue magazine, the 36-year-old spoke frankly about her husband of 11 years.

Speaking in the February issue of Vogue - her sixth Vogue cover - she said: 'The other morning I looked across at David just after he'd woken up and thought you look really c**p.

'Thank God, because this is a man who always looked so perfect.'

Her remarks were in stark contrast to an interview she gave to Marie Claire magazine in October.

Shifting power balance: Victoria, pictured at Los Angeles airport last week, admitted their marriage is evolving

She said at the time: 'He just naturally looks good all the time. He never looks like s*** in the morning. Never.

‘So he’s sitting there sending his e-mails, all ripped. Not an ounce of fat on him.

And I thought, you done good, girl. I sure wasn’t thinking of his high-pitched voice.'

Victoria's appearance in Vogue is the sixth time she's appeared on the cover of the magazine.

Was it his new haircut? David Beckham's, pictured in London at Christmas, new style hasn't gone down well with fans

She's already graced the covers of Russian, Indian, Turkish, German editions, and the British edition once before in 2008.

Also in the Vogue interview, she admits she's finally given up on her long hope for a baby girl.

She also confesses to having her breast implants removed and admits the power balance between herself and David is changing.

But Jude Law made a serious fashion faux pas arriving at Heathrow airport yesterday, sporting a strange trouser and jacket combination.

Low rider: Jude's scruffy outfit included a pair of cream jogging trousers with a low crotch and he sported a short beard as he flew into Heathrow with Sienna

He topped the outfit off with unlaced biker boots and displayed a stubbly face which made for a bizarre, and quite scruffy outfit choice.

As he canoodled with Sienna at the airport desk the crotch of his trousers were so low that it gave him a sagging bottom effect.

By contrast a make-up free Sienna Miller,29, was looking her stylish self sporting a simple but chic look.

Dont look! Jude and Sienna were aided with their luggage by Virgin Atlantic member of staff who couldn't help but take a quick peak at Jude's outfit

Sienna showed off her signature style in pair of skinny jeans, a navy jumper and a black leather jacket.

Happy couple: The pair who have recently splashed out on a new London home were affectionate as they waited at the airport desk

The pair sauntered through the airport carrying their hand luggage as a number of helpers attended to their baggage.

They were initially helped out by a Virgin Atlantic staff member who pushed the trolley laden with their four bags.

Dressed in the signature red uniform, she contained her composure escorting the celebrity couple, but couldn’t help but take a quick peek at Jude’s bizarre trouser choice.

As they approached their car a smartly dressed man took charge of their luggage.

It's a new year, new start for Lindsay Lohan as she leaves rehab and gets ready to move in to a luxury Venice Beach house




Beach house: Lindsay Lohan is moving into this light and airy beach house in the Venice area of Los Angeles

Lindsay Lohan is clearly hoping that the new year means a new start.

The troubled 24-year-old is reported to have left rehab today after a 90 day stay in the Betty Ford Clinic and is also ready to move into a plush new beach side pad.

The star is said to be renting the 3,100 square foot house in in the Venice Beach area of Los Angeles for just under $7,100 a month.

Luxury: Lindsay's new house boasts four bedrooms with large windows and fantastic views

However, the house is not yet ready for Lindsay to move in, so she is said to be staying at an 'upmarket LA hotel,' according to Radar.

The house comes with four bedrooms and four bathrooms and is said to be situated across the street from her friend Samantha Ronson.

New start: Lohan was released from rehab today

The house comes with four bedrooms and four bathrooms and is said to be situated across the street from her friend Samantha Ronson.

She and Ronson both used to reside in the same apartment building in the West Hollywood area of Los Angeles, but Ronson moved out last year.

Lindsay left the rehabilitation clinic, three months after she was ordered back for treatment by a judge after failing a drugs test.

She served the rehab stint in connection with her 2007 DUI conviction, after repeatedly failing to meet the terms of her probation.

This led to two stints in jail and two in rehab last year.

Modern: Lindsay's new home features plenty of open spaces and a trendy wooden staircase

Plush: Lindsay is said to be renting the pad, built in 2007, for around $7,100 a month

However, the star has signalled that she fully intends to turn over a new leaf.

She tweeted on Saturday:'Today is the first day of the rest of my life "The future depends on what we do in the present." -Mahatma Gandhi... One step at a time....'

Meanwhile Lindsay's father Michael Lohan told the CBS Early Show that his daughter was indeed turning his life around.

Stylish: Lindsay will have plenty of space for guests with four bathrooms in her new pad

Great views: Lindsay's new house is in the trendy Los Angeles area of Venice Beach

Lindsay's next court appearance is scheduled for February 25.

Selena Gomez receives death threats from Justin Bieber fans after she's pictured kissing teen singer in Caribbean




Troubled fans: Several young girls have threatened Selena Gomez's life, the Disney star is seen here taking a romantic stroll with Justin Bieber in Miami

Selena Gomez has received a string of death threats after she was pictured kissing teen star Justin Bieber while holidaying on the Caribbean island of St. Lucia.

The young stars have been coy about rumors of romance for several months, however the new pictures, which have surfaced online, seem to have confirmed their secret relationship.

Justin's fans, who are popularly known as 'Beliebers', posted several hostile messages to the 18-year-old Disney star on Twitter today.

One message read: 'Roses are red, violets are blue, @selenagomez if you'll break @justinbieber's heart I'm gonna kill you'.

So happy together: Justin and Selena can't stop smiling as they enjoy each other's company

Selena's fans have since taken to Twitter to show their support for the singer: 'Omg some of the things 'Beliebers' have been saying to poor @selenagomez are awful, it makes me wanna cry', one fan posted.

Selena and Justin have been keeping very close company in recent weeks.

They enjoyed pancakes at American chain restaurant, IHop pancake house in Philadelphia, and last month they were snapped warmly embracing after Selena attended Justin's sold-out concert at the American Airlines Arena in Miami.

Speaking to Us Weekly, she denied any type of romance insisting that they two were more like brother and sister.

'It was pancakes! Oh my gosh! [Justin is] one of my best friends…' she mused.

Selena also explained her feelings for Justin, describing him as 'family'.

'I love Justin. When he first started to come over from Canada his manager contacted me and he just said that he would like to meet me and he was just such a good kid…' she said.

'I feel like a big sister now, because I want to protect him.

So where HAS Amanda Holden been hiding her baby bump?




When Amanda Holden announced yesterday that she was six months pregnant, her fans were delighted — but also astonished. In the past six months the Britain’s Got Talent star has never looked more svelte. So where on earth has she been hiding her baby bump?

In fact, as body-conscious mums will know, it is possible to hide the fact you’re in the family way well into the second trimester (even if you are feeling alternately sick and wanting to eat the entire contents of the nearest cake shop!).

All it needs is a bit of help from Mother Nature, sensible eating habits and some clever planning.

Next, as Amanda has proven, it’s all in the styling. First, don’t make your waistline the focus, advises Tiffany London, founder of the Tiffany Rose maternity wear brand, who has dressed pregnant celebs such as Myleene Klass and Emma Bunton.

‘Go for high-quality fabrics like jersey that have a bit of give,’ she advises.
Don’t dress like you’re pregnant, either. Avoid Princess Diana-type smocks, yoga pants and slouchy maternity jeans.

Details and accessories are key, too. Amanda has used frills, large prints and jewellery. An unusual necklace can also distract people’s attention.

‘A long necklace or a scarf, a bit more dĂ©colletage — and it’s amazing how it draws the eye up,’ says Tiffany. General grooming helps as well. If you’re a believer in full-on slap, then carry on with the red lipsticks and blow-dries.

And finally: the truth is, weight gain is an inevitable — and healthy — side-effect of pregnancy.

But when it comes to being an undercover, yet stylish mum-to-be, Amanda’s proved she’s got talent.

Black Swan star Mila Kunis splits from Macaulay Culkin after eight years




Separate ways: Macaulay Culkin and Mila Kunis, pictured here in 2006, have called off their eight-year romance

Black Swan actress Mila Kunis has split from Home Alone star Macaulay Culkin.

The Golden Globe nominated star and Culkin were together for eight years before parting ways.

'The split was amicable, and they remain close friends,' a spokesperson said told New York Post's Page Six.

According to a source the pair had broken up months ago but decided to kept it quiet while the 27-year-old promoted Black Swan.

Single: Mila, seen here at the New York premiere of Black Swan in November, kept the break-up quiet while promoting the film

Mila had previously spoken about her fear of settling down with Macaulay, 30, revealing to BlackBook in December 2009 that marriage probably wasn't for her.

She said: 'Not to say that I don't believe in it, but it's just not something that's important to me.

'But I will have children. I'm too selfish to have them now, but when I do, I don't feel like I need to be married.

'I need to have a person in my life who will care for me and my children, nothing else.'

Macaulay was once Hollywood's biggest child star, commanding £4million a film by the time he starred in 1994's Richie Rich.

But his career came to a sudden halt when his parents, Kit (who was also his manager) and Patricia, began fighting over control of his personal fortune.

Last month Mila's Black Swan co-star Natalie Portman revealed she is engaged and pregnant to the film's choreographer Benjamin Millepied.

Cher Lloyd steps out with a copycat Rihanna hairstyle



Full of the joys: The penguin dances around the compound, much to the bemusement of his friends

It's normally little children that get excited at the sight of their first snowflake.

As permanent residents of the chilly, snow-covered South Pole, you'd think for penquins it would all be a bit, well, mundane.

Not so for this little chap who clearly couldn't control his excitement as the white stuff started to fall.

Looking like the real-life star of animated film Happy Feet, the baby penguin tears up and down while his bemused friends look on.

Or maybe he's a fan of penguin-suited dance legend Fred Astaire, who often went through his paces wearing a top hat and tails.

The clip was posted on YouTube two days ago and has already attracted thousands of views.

Inspiration: Is our dancing penguin a film fan? If so he might have seen Happy Feet or one of Fred Astaire's many films

In the Happy feet film, Mumble the penguin is cast as an outsider because he has a terrible singing voice. But he soon becomes the star of the show when he discovers he has talent for something none of his friends has seen before - tap dancing.
