A former Sheffield United defender and veteran of their 1971 promotion winning side, he still lives, eats and breathes all things Blades. So, as Chris Wilder’s team prepare for tomorrow’s meeting with Sheffield Wednesday, it comes as no surprise to hear him describe what is at stake.“Everything. That’s what these matches mean.

SUMMER'S over! I can hardly believe it. My tan is fading by the second after the most amazing two months of doing absolutely bugger all, bar hanging out with my husband Chris and our girls, eating and drinking. I really needed a break after this year’s Britain’s Got Talent , and the summer months are always family time for me. We’ve been on holiday to France, Cornwall and Italy, and I swear if you cut me I’d bleed rosé wine and cream cakes. I did run most days, but I don’t think it’s as effective when you’re running to the local bakery… Of course, the end of summer means back to school and it’s a big week in the Holden-Hughes household, because my baby Hollie starts school on Tuesday. Where have the last four years gone? When Lexi, now 10, started I was partly weepy and partly proud we’d reached that stage. Maybe because Hollie is my youngest and last child, I just feel … [Read more...] about Waterproof mascara at the ready, Amanda Holden talks about sending her baby girl to school

LEONARDO DiCAPRIO preached about how eating meat was destroying the environment – then went to a steakhouse.He ate with pals at The Chop and Ale House at Champany Inn in Linlithgow, West Lothian, after delivering an impassioned speech at the Scottish Business Awards.In it, he implored host CHRIS EVANS to “reduce your red-meat intake to help the environment”.Hardly the crime of the century — unless you’re a cow — but it was an oddly timed choice for Leo.He has even publicly backed docu-film Cowspiracy, which claimed the meat, dairy and egg industries were doing more damage than exhaust fumes.But considering how he regularly lectures people about cutting their carbon footprints, before swanning off in his private jets and yachts, it’s not the first time he’s seemed a tad, er, hypocritical.In fact, Leo was landed in it TWICE more last week.Biffy Mackay, a chef at Scottish charity Home Café revealed he ate lamb tagine, then LA chef … [Read more...] about Leonardo DiCaprio preaches about meat at a veggie talk but is later caught tucking into lamb tagine at a steakhouse
