The Graham Norton Show: McBusted's Dougie is an unlikely David Attenborough fan

Dougie from McBusted outs himself as one of Sir David Attenborough’s biggest (and not at all stalkerish) fans when they meet up on Graham’s sofa this week.

“When I was looking to move and didn’t know where, I just Googled where you live because I thought it must be the most serene place ever,” he tells Sir David.

“So I live up the road from you. I pass your house on the way to the dry cleaners.” It’s the kind of bizarre revelation you tend to get on this show which throws all kinds of celebrities into the mix.

Kingsman: The Secret Service is a very British spy caper and a whole lot of fun

Murder, mayhem and madness are unleashed in this absurdly enjoyable spy caper that David Niven or perhaps Patrick Macnee might have made in the 1960s.

Only this time we have exploding heads, potty-mouthed language and – towards the end – a certain X-rated gag about the queen of Sweden’s bottom that would have made everyone at Ealing choke on their Earl Grey.

With Niven unavailable, it’s down to Colin Firth to save the world as Harry Hart, a crack member of the ultra-secret Kingsman espionage ring, headed by Michael Caine.

Customer ordered to pay £500 restaurant bill – TWO YEARS after doing a runner

A customer has been ordered to pay more than £500 for his slap-up meal - two years after he did a runner.

William Potter and three pals dined out on scallops, beef fillet, lamb shanks and cod.

Then they ordered desserts and helped to wash the whole lot down with two bottles of Dom Perignon champagne - at £148.40 a bottle.

An Italian pinot grigio at £23.50 and two bottles of £35 rioja were also selected from the wine list to help the evening go with a swing.

British personnel in Kurdistan are training the region"s Peshmerga forces, who have been involved in some of the heaviest fighting against IS, also known as Isil.

012115_rodney_peete_launchDeflated balls or not ... the New England Patriots kicked Indy"s ass this weekend -- and the amount of air in the pigskin had NOTHING to do with it ... so says ex-NFL QB Rodney Peete

Peete -- who played in the NFL for 16 years -- says the whole "Deflate-Gate" scandal is being blown way out of proportion ... because despite the pressure in the footballs, "you still gotta play the game."

Rodney also says slightly deflated balls don"t give a QB an advantage -- "You still gotta make the throws." 

The NFL is not commenting on the investigation into the Pats -- but multiple reports say the league found 11 of the 12 balls were under-inflated by 2 pounds-per-square inch.

Britain's millions of unpaid carers at breaking point and overwhelmed by pressure

Millions of carers across the nation are at breaking point – overwhelmed by loneliness, exhaustion, depression and massive financial strain.

A huge 6.5 million Brits care for a loved one who is older, seriously ill or disabled, saving the economy an estimated £119billion a year in bills to professionals.

But shock research reveals 80% feel completely alone, while 50% feel depressed, with no official help in sight.

One husband who takes care of his ill wife hit out at “broken promises” from the country’s leaders, as charity Carers UK – behind the study – called for better support from the Government.

She argued: “The policy is well-intentioned but misguided. It will do more harm than good.”
