Cake apology
Robbie Williams treated his wife to a meal at a restaurant called The Fat Duck this week to celebrate her birthday, but it ended in him having to apologise to for eating her birthday cake before she had a chance to blow out her candles.
Writing on his official website, he said: “I took Ayda to a place called the fat duck for her birthday. I officially had the best meal of my life”
“The day after I did a 10 mile hike to burn it all off … I was that hungry when I got back through the door something bad happened. Ayda’s birthday cake was liberated by me … I didn’t know there was cake etiquette. Apparently your supposed to wait for candles to be lit a song is sung and then you share…
sorry ayda x”
As he said he done a 10 mile hike and has been working hard with his fitness training to make sure he isn’t the ‘podgy’ member of his band Take That. It has been reported that he lost 42 pounds while preparing to tour with the group.
His Fitness instructor Nick Hollender said: “I make him run on the treadmill and sing all his songs without missing a note.
“He has to catch up to bandmates Gary Barlow, Mark Owen, Jason Orange and Howard Donald who have been on tour much more than him.
“He’s not going to be left behind and wants to be trim and healthy, instead of feeling like the podgy member.”

Pixie Lott’s Fashion Range
Local singer Pixie Lott has launched her 3rd  fashion range for high street shop Lipsy. To celebrate the launch she held a party at the London night club Chinawhite and some of the stars who attended were including David Hasselhoff, Jesse Metcalfe, Rochelle from the Saturdays and JLS’ Marvin
Pixie has promised this new fashion range is ‘quite different’ and it certainly sounds it as it features a mix of vintage style, 70s inspired garments and floral patterns, contrasted with bold statement dresses and lots of colour blocking.

Break for The Black Eyed Peas
Fergie, the only female member in popular group Black Eyed Peas has revealed the band are taking a break from each other to concentrate on their personal lives.
Fergie herself has decided to use the time apat to spend more time with her husband, she has said  “We’re taking a break.getting more of that personal time, but, you know, Josh and I have gotten to spend a lot more time together this year than other years, which is great.”
We also may soon be hearing little footsteps of a mini Fergie after she admitted she is planning to start a family, when she was asked about it she replied saying  “Oh yeah, of course. Not right this second. Not pregnant, for the record. But, yeah.”
Even though Fergie is using her time off to chill out and spend time with her family, her bandmate Will.i.am is using his time in the opposite way. He is planning to release a solo album.
Fergie added: “I believe Will is coming out with a solo album, I’ve heard it, it’s called ‘Black Einstein’, and it’s amazing. I’ve been waiting for him to come out with this for so long, because I want it. He won’t give it to me. I want it for the gym. He’s so amazing. Such a genius lyricist and I’m really excited for his project.”

Leona Wants to be number one
Leona Lewis has revealed she would like to do a duet with Adele.  Four years ago the  X-Factor winner got to number one in the US charts with her song ‘Bleeding Love’ and she thinks that she would be able to get another number one if she collaborated with Adele.
She said “They’ve invited me to perform on US ‘X Factor’, so that will be exciting.
“What came into my head was a duet with Adele. I think she is incredible. I met her a little while ago. We did ‘VH1 Divas’ together and I just think she’s awesome. She’s done so well and her music speaks for itself. That’s what it is – just talent.”

Adele says No to festivals
Adele is turning down lots money recently for a number of reasons. She has turned down the chance to appear at three summer shows in London and get £500,000 for it so that she can hang out with her friends, as she doesn’t want her whole life to be spent working. But also she has revealed she will never perform at festivals or arenas as she is scared of performing in front of a big crowd. However she has said she still wants to play at small venues, saying “I will not do festivals. The thought of an audience that big frightens the life out of me. I don’t think the music would work either. It’s all too slow. I’d hate to book a festival and have a  anxiety attack and then not go on stage, do you know what I mean?”
Although she is worth £6 million, according to the latest Sunday Times Rich List she has hinted money is not her motivation. By saying “I like things now I’ve got it but I’d still be alive and healthy and a good person if I didn’t have money.”
