You’ve got Styles: One Direction star Harry cuts a dash at Aquascutum’s catwalk show… and hits it off with Alexandra Burke
Harry Styles cut quite a dash during an appearance at Aquascutum’s London Fashion Week show today.

Kitty Brucknell’s missing the style X Factor in bizarre leather get-up as she claws her way on to front row at London Fashion Week
The front row at catwalk shows is normally saved for the fashion elite from supermodels such as Kate Moss to fashionistas like the Olsen twins.

So it comes as a surprise that former X Factor star Kitty Brucknell is on a designer’s hot list to invite to watch their runway collection.

But the wannabe singer managed to somehow blag herself an invite to a show at London Fashion Week earlier today, even taking prize position at the front of designer Bora Aksu’s show.

It was word vomit! Cher Lloyd apologises for implying that former mentor Cheryl Cole relies on autotune to perform live
She opened a can of worms when she insinuated during a radio interview that her former X Factor mentor Cheryl Cole relies on autotune for her live performances.

But it seems following a somewhat hurt response from the singer, Cher has thought better of her harsh words.

The 18-year-old apologised during an appearance on Daybreak this morning, saying that her thoughtless comment was simply ‘word vomit.’

Cher Lloyd interview: ‘LA Reid loves scrambled eggs’
All things considered, things have gone pretty well for Cher Lloyd since The X Factor.

Not only has she put out a mightily impressive debut album, but she’s also managed to turn around a fair few of the “haterz” that wrote her off before she’d even got going.

With her new single ‘Want U Back’ out this week and plans afoot for the US, we met up with a very sleepy Cher to find out what the next 12 months hold for her.

Oxygen-Factor: Cowell’s anti-ageing trick is inhaling cans of fresh air
From spending hundreds of pounds on face creams to drinking pints of water a day, we’ll do anything to hold back the years.

But Simon Cowell has a more unusual weapon up his sleeve in his notorious quest for eternal youth – cans of oxygen.

The 52-year-old, who has previously admitted to having Botox, carries a small bottle of the gas with him wherever he goes.

And he is so convinced of the anti-ageing effects of inhaling pure oxygen that he has been offering it to his fellow judges on Britain’s Got Talent, as well as hosts Ant and Dec.

Last night a source on the ITV1 show said: ‘Ant and Dec and the other judges were trying it.

They all seemed to like it and Alesha [Dixon] was the only one who didn’t fancy it. It’s not much bigger than a can of Pepsi and you can just breathe from it.’

How did she do it! Amanda Holden snaps back to her incredible pre-baby figure just THREE WEEKS after giving birth
She gave birth just three weeks ago, enduring a traumatic labour which almost cost her life.

So it would be understandable if Amanda Holden felt the need to take some time off work to rest up.

But not only has the determined 41-year-old already returned to judge the Britain’s Got Talent auditions, she looks better than ever before.

The stunning blonde displayed her astonishing figure in a gorgeous blue dress as she arrived at the ICC in Birmingham this afternoon.
