We never though of Benedict Cumberbatch as much of a bad boy – until now!

According to his good friend, Keira Knightley, he once punched a journalist in the arm.

The actress made the comments while talking to Elle magazine, admitting that he lost his temper after a journalist said something rude about her: “When I saw him [Benedict] again, I said, ‘Did you punch a journalist?’ and he was like, ‘I f***ing did’. Everybody needs a friend like that.”

It was said to be film critic, Mark Kermode, who spoke of Keira in a less than pleasant way – sparking anger from the Sherlock actor.

While we normally don’t condone violence, it’s pretty epic that Benedict stuck up for his friend in such a strong way.




Model Abbey Clancy is in big trouble with lingerie boss Michelle Mone.

The Strictly Come Dancing winner clashed with Michelle after she posed in her underwear for brands Veet and Scholl.

As a result, Abbey was told she is no longer the face and body of Ultimo – the firm Michelle owns.

A spokesperson said, “Each party have decided to terminate the contract due to creative differences.”

Abbey first became an ambassador for the brand in December 2013, when she replaced Michael Buble’s wife Luisana Lopilato.

Her latest campaign was only released a few weeks ago.

It is a real change of tune for the founder of Ultimo Michelle, who recently sang Abbey’s praises for her work on the latest campaign.

“Abbey looks gorgeous in the new Ultimo designs, which are perfect for injection some colour into your lingerie drawer this summer,” she said.

Abbey is the latest in a long line of celebrities to have appeared in Ultimo campaigns, with Mel B, Penny Lancaster and Rachel Hunter, coming before her.



Style princess Alexa Chung is the new face of Nails Inc.

The 30-year-old model and TV presenter will collaborate with the UK-based brand on a six-shade collection of fabric-inspired nail polishes that are set to launch in August.

Alexa announced the news on Twitter, writing, ”This is a thing”, and attached the ad-snap of her clutching a huge bottle of varnish.

She then added, ”That’s a normal size bottle. I’m just really small…”

In June, customers will be given a sneak preview of the range when a limited-edition shade called Red Lace goes on sale at nailsinc.com.

Busy bee Alexa also plans to create her very first clothing collection later this year.

She said, ”That’s going to be the first opportunity where I haven’t had a nine-to-five job – I’ve been doing Eyeko, I wrote a book, I did Fuse every day, and various other design gigs and DJing.

”So this will be the first time to actually sort of sit down and think about it. I’m going to get it off the ground hopefully in 2014.”

Alexa admits she hasn’t gotten very far with her collection.

”For the first collection? Oh god I don’t even know… See, that’s why I need some time to think about it!”

Foundation is the key to a great complexion and flawless looking skin…and most of us are getting it wrong..

Follow our 10 Commandments of Foundation and you’ll always be ready for your close-up.

  1. Make sure your skin is cleansed and exfoliated.
  2. Only use foundations that complement your skin. Oil-free for oily skin, hydrating formulas for dry skin and hypoallergenic for those who are sensitive.
  3. Check shades on your jawline not on your hand. Double-check in natural light before making your decision.
  4. Don’t stick to the usual. As the seasons change so too should your foundation.
  5. Smooth your face with primer. A lavender-based one will brighten dull skin while a green-based one will cover up redness.
  6. Use concealer to hide any imperfections but make sure you blend properly.
  7. Lightly pat the foundation onto your face. Don’t forget to blend around your ears.
  8. Learn the art of contouring. You can define your face by creating shadows with an angled powder brush.
  9. Bronzer can give you a healthy glow. Sweep small amounts wherever the sun would naturally touch.
  10. Don’t forget your highlighter. This will add instant soft lighting where needed.


If you don’t want to spend hours working out when trying to achieve a thinner face, you don’t have to.

You can skip all that and get that chiselled look in the snap of a finger – for a few hours anyway.

With the right tools and techniques, you can  minimise roundness in your face by applying a technique called ‘contouring.’

  • Get yourself a matte bronzer that is three or four shades darker than your skin tone and a flathead brush.
  • To contour, make a ‘fish face’ and apply the product in the shape of the number ‘3,’ starting from the side of your forehead to under your cheekbones and then backwards from the cheekbone to your jawline.
  • By contouring these areas you are minimising roundness and creating a shadow that will make your cheekbone stand out more.

This simple process only takes seconds and does wonders for your face.
