Here is what else has been happening in Celeb World this week…
Professor Green’s Driving Test
Stephen Manderson, better known as Professor Green sadly failed his Driving Test this week.
He explained the reasons for his failure on Twitter by saying “Fuming! Failed over slipping into 3rd instead of 5th… recovered without blinking but still got failed.’
“I shall sort out my gears and make sure I pass next time. Fingers cross I smack it next time.”
However it might take the Hip-Hop singer a while to gain his official licence as he has said “I can’t book a test tomorrow, 10 working days between tests, and I’m on tour.”
Kym marsh gives birth
This week Ex-hear say singer now actress Kym Marsh gave birth to a little baby girl. They have named her Polly and even tough she was 5 weeks early, is has been said mother and baby are both ‘doing well’
In a statement Kym’s publicist said: “Jamie Lomas and Kym Marsh are delighted to announce that they are the proud parents of a baby girl, Polly Lomas. Polly was born on Wednesday evening weighing 4lbs 1oz. Mum and baby are doing well.”
Kym went on early maternity leave as she confessed she had been feeling ‘very down; during her pregnancy so doctors advise she should take a break from filming in the Soap Coronation Street. She said: “It’s not been enjoyable at all. From 28 weeks I’ve been able to breathe a little bit. Yeah, there have been times I’ve been very down.”
From one Kimberly to another.
Comedian James Corden has a middle name of Kimberly and he became a parent this week too. His fiancee Julia Carey gave birth to a baby boy on Tuesday but they have not named him yet.The reason for this is James is unsure whether to carry on his family tradition or not, which is to pass on his middle name.
A source has said “James and Julia haven’t decided on a name but James is really unsure if he should keep the family tradition going. He knows first-hand it’s not a great name for a little boy growing up. He’s wondering whether there is much point carrying it on, as he knows he’s likely to get picked on at school because of it. The little boy is also a healthy big bruiser who looks like he could easily grow up and become a rugby player, and Kimberly is, after all, a girl’s name.”
James has previously spoken about his unusual middle name, saying it caused him to be teased by his schoolmates.
He said: “Every man in my family has it – it’s a tradition. For ages I pretended it was Karl, but my sister was going out with one of my mates and told him, then he told the whole school. It wasn’t great.”
Justin Bieber has ganged up with Will Smith’s son Jaden to get revenge on Jaden’s sister Williow Smith.
10 year old Williow is touring with 17 year old Bieber and last week Williow tried to trick him at a gig so he made plans to give her a scare during her set.
Before his concert in Manchester, he wrote on Twitter, “So the other day Willow decided to try and prank me. PRANK ME.Well now is PHASE 1 of my REVENGE Manchester get ready!!” Phase 1 saw Bieber and Jaden sneaked onto the stage while Willow was performing with their faces covered in face paint.
In a post on her Facebook page, Willow shows she isn’t going to let this go. She wrote, “My big brother’s, Justin and Jaden pranked me on stage tonight… payback!!!”
