    Actor Michael LeVell has returned to work on the set of Coronation Street following a child rape allegation.

    The 46-year-old is reported to have shaken hands with every person on the soap's Manchester set, and it is claimed his castmates told him "we're with you, mate".
    The Mirror quotes a source as saying: "It was all very emotional. Everyone backed him wholeheartedly, without exception - shaking his hand and offering their support, saying they were 'with him'. He was clearly very touched by the response.

    "Understandably, it was a nerve-racking day for him, but everyone was keen to put him at ease and make him feel welcome. Michael is a well-liked and respected colleague, and he has our complete backing while he fights this."

    LeVell has had a two-week break from work since being accused of the sexual assault, which he denies.

    His first scene was apparently a remembrance service for the victims of the soap's tram tragedy, and featured 30 of his co-stars.

    The paper quoted another source as saying: "For a comeback scene there couldn't have been much more pressure.

    "Almost every character in the cast was on set. But Michael showed no sign of nerves, he was totally professional."

    The actor, whose real name is Michael Turner, has been bailed to appear back in court on November 16.

    Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood is still showing no sign of acting his age - rebounding from the break-up of his relationship with 29-year-old Ana Araujo by hooking up with a 25-year-old instead.

    The horny old goat guitarist, 64, has been revealed to be dating Nicola Sargent, a former model who now works as a stylist for posh jeweller Stephen Webster.
    That's a 39-year age gap by the way, in case you were still trying to work it out.

    The couple have already been out in public several times, keeping it low-key like on the visit to Royal Ascot racecourse pictured above.

    But she gave the game away when she uploaded a picture of her and Ron with Stereophonics frontman Kelly Jones and another woman to her Facebook - because it was blatantly a double date.

    Nicola moved to London last year after finishing her degree in Business Studies and Industrial Studies at the University of Ulster.

    Since then she has been living close to trendy Shoreditch - where Ronnie happens to have his own studio flat.

    Ronnie dated Ekaterina Ivanova - now 22 - before Ana, and that relationship led to the end of his 23-year marriage to Jo Wood.

    What do you reckon? Will Nicola be "the one"? Comment below...

    Simon Cowell has quashed rumours that Steve Jones is to become the new Cheryl Cole.

    No, he wasn't lined up for his own shampoo ad - apparently he was the next Brit on the X Factor USA chopping block.

    But Uncle Si has reassured the Welshman his job on the talent show is safe after claims he was to be replaced or have to share his duties with a co-host after viewers failed to warm to him.

    Simon told the New York Times: "Steve Jones isn't leaving the US X Factor. There is a lot of speculation about Steve Jones leaving the show.
    "To avoid any confusion, Steve will be hosting all of the live shows and he's doing a great job."

    Hmmm, we seem to remember Simon telling Kate Thornton the same thing just weeks before she was axed as the host of the UK version.

    Anyway, there is more woe for the US show after figures for the show where the top 17 finalists were revealed only just managed to scrape past 10 million.

    The last installment form Judges' Homes (as it is called over there) mustered only 10.1m - around three million down on the equivalent episode in the UK this year. Ouch.

    Seems as if those dreams of the show hitting 20m are getting further and further away Si...

    What do you think of Steve as host? How does he compare to our Dermie? Leave a comment below.

    When you're Hollywood royalty, getting a table at your favourite eaterie is a given. Or at least it's meant to be, but try telling that to poor old John Travolta.

    The Grease star was left red-faced last weekend when one of his minions called the East Grinstead branch of KFC in the hope of reserving a special table but the request was turned down.

    Awkward.
    A rep for the actor - who was in town for an annual Scientology event - was told Travolta would have to join the queue like the rest of the paying punters and find his own table.

    You don't get that at Nobu, do you John?

    The KFC employee who took the call told the Metro: "To me, customers are customers, no matter who they are. The lady who called didn't give me her name, she just said it will be for a Mr. Travolta. I thought it might be a load of nonsense."

    Well you would really, wouldn't you?

    Funnily enough, KFC bigwigs have now said they'd happily make an exception for the actor. A spokesman said: "In hindsight, of course we would have reserved a table for him. It's not every day you get a Hollywood star eating in your restaurant.'

    Hmmm, seems like Grease is the word after all. So, what's it going to be John? A Zinger Tower Burger or Bargain Bucket?

    How do you end up having slept with 67 girls (or is it 68?) by the age of 18? Well in Frankie Cocozza's case it appears that you just have to be upfront about it.

    The X Factor hopeful has shared the secrets of his success with the ladies - and insisted that he "wasn't always a little slag", revealing that he had his heart broken by his school sweetheart.
    Speaking to The Sun newspaper, the Brighton boy admitted bedding another girl this week - taking his total to 68. His bedpost must be more notch than post by now.

    He said: "I wasn't always a little slag, it just sort of happened. I found girls."

    And he admits that his high work rate was mainly down to working as a club rep in Crete.

    He said: "Most of them were in Malia so I don't really remember most of their names.

    "I'd slept with about 20 before I went there. I'm not really good with women, I'm just upfront and some girls like that.

    "In Malia I literally just went up to girls and said, 'You're fit, do you want to f***?' One in three would say yes. They're all up for a shag there.

    "That probably wouldn't work in Britain. Here, I just compliment them, make them feel special. But I'm not romantic. The most romantic thing I've ever done was take a girl to a Beyonce gig.

    "The cheesiest line I use is, 'Let's get you home'. Most girls just laugh when I say that - that's probably why it works."

    But Frankie also (sort of) reinforces the old stereotype about womanisers basically being insecure and lonely.

    He said: "I've had one serious relationship. It was on and off for the last three years at school.

    "Even when we weren't together everyone knew we still liked each other. She broke my heart, that's why I'm a t***. I'm not going to say her name. It's so awkward.

    "She didn't cheat on me but she went off with someone else afterwards and it was someone I'd never expected. That's all I'm saying. Since then I've never wanted to be in a relationship again. I probably will do at some point but not now.

    "It was the worst six months of my life. It was vile, horrible. I would cry about her when I was drunk. I got over it in time and then I went to Malia and started shagging."

    Awww, we almost feel sympathetic toward the randy little scamp now.

    What do you reckon on Frankie? Would you fall for his chat? Comment below...

    It takes two to Tango and that's what I am finding out this week with Flavia to guide me through the steps of this passion packed ballroom dance.
    It was a late night journey back to Wales, but it went quickly as I was over the moon to have made it through another week.

    There really is no place like home. But then it was up bright and early to deal with the pile of fan mail that has started to flood in. Then down to the practice rooms to let Flavia put me through my paces.

    This week the BBC have also done some filming around my house and the fabulous scenic Snowdonia. I think you'll enjoy seeing the house and the mountains.

    It's a precise, non-smiley, aggressive dance to get a handle on but Flavia makes everything seem so simple and straightforward. She is a great teacher and a wonderful charismatic partner as you'll see on Saturday.

    Monday saw me doing my regular slot with Steve Wright in the Afternoon and Flavia came along with me to the BBC studios to make a very special guest appearance that everyone loved. Steve was delighted to see Flavia and I am sure it made his day - well it would, wouldn't it? Praise indeed from Mr. Wright when he told Flavia that it was my "infectious enthusiasm that made me so watchable".

    A blustery, showery Wednesday with a definite nip in the air saw more outdoor filming and a grueling practice session that left me wearily wacked out but all fired up for what I hope will be a scintillating Saturday.

    Lamb chops for dinner! The waning waistline keeps on shrinking. I feel on top of the world and hoping and praying to make it successfully through the weekend.

    The fabulous support and affection that have come my way since the show began have been wonderful from Facebook and Twitter to email and snail mail. So many messages of encouragement have come flooding in it takes my breath away. Thank you all so much.

    See you Saturday and thanks for being there!

    Oh dear. Whoever wins this year's X Factor could be facing the same fate as Joe McElderry as a campaign to boycott the winning single has already begun.

    Bookies have slashed the odds of Nirvana hitting the number one spot at Christmas after a Facebook group was launched.
    Smells Like Teen Spirit is now a serious contender for the festive top spot as bookmakers William Hill are offering odds of 5/1, although it is still behind the eventual X Factor winner at 1/4.

    However, the group is growing quickly, already boasting over 41,000 members - and there is still eight weeks until the Christmas number one is announced...

    Little Geordie Joe famously had to settle for second place in the 2009 Christmas chart battle after a Facebook boycott meant Killing in the Name of.. by Rage Against the Machine clinched the number one.

    So will The Risk or Janet Devlin et al be crying into their Christmas dinner this year? That would really top off this year's apparent crisis eh?

    Myleene Klass has married her long-term love in an intimate private ceremony.

    The TV presenter tied the knot with Graham Quinn yesterday in front of just 16 close friends and family, with daughters Ava and Hero as bridesmaids.

    No TV cameras, Hello! spreads (as far as we know) and no posing for the paps... just a simple ceremony near the family home in Norwich.

    In fact, the first we heard of it was when she tweeted: "Just Married!!! X"

    Myleene's rep later confirmed in a statement: "Myleene and Gray had a private intimate wedding in Norwich today. Only 16 close family and friends were invited.

    "The couple did not want a big lavish affair, they just wanted to be married and enjoy the day with their nearest and dearest."
    Not surprising, given Myleene's views on celebrity marriage. She and Gray have been engaged since 2005 but the couple cancelled wedding plans last year over a spate of 'celeb love rat' press stories.

    And in an interview with The Sun this weekend, the former Hear'Say singer said: "I hate the idea that so much is about the bells and whistles of the wedding. For me, it's about the marriage."

    Apparently, she really means it too.

    Congratulations to the happy couple!

    As one of the world's most eligible bachelors there's no way Prince Harry is going to limit his search for a girlfriend to the posh polo crowd... or posh lingerie models, for that matter.

    According to The Sun, he's casting his net far and wide, and has recently begun romancing a Californian cocktail waitress.

    Currently on a flying course Stateside, Harry reportedly met 26-year-old Jessica Donaldson at the Andaz Hotel in San Diego.

    They've apparently already been on two dates within a week and were witnessed getting cosy at the Belly Up Tavern last weekend.

    A nosy onlooker told the paper: "Loads of girls were trying to get Harry's attention but he only had eyes for Jes. They were kissing and looked comfortable together."
    Another source said: "She's a really fun girl and he was clearly bowled over. Things developed from there."

    The California girl sounds right up party-loving Harry's street - a friend of Jessica claims she's "a bit wild and goes out a lot".

    Mind you, Harry's off to Arizona for more flight training in a couple of weeks so maybe it's just a holiday romance.

    What do you think - will Harry end up with someone from royal circles or break the mould with a normal girl? Leave a comment below...

    Currently on a flying course Stateside, Harry reportedly met 26-year-old Jessica Donaldson at the Andaz Hotel in San Diego.

    They've apparently already been on two dates within a week and were witnessed getting cosy at the Belly Up Tavern last weekend.

    A nosy onlooker told the paper: "Loads of girls were trying to get Harry's attention but he only had eyes for Jes. They were kissing and looked comfortable together."
    Another source said: "She's a really fun girl and he was clearly bowled over. Things developed from there."

    The California girl sounds right up party-loving Harry's street - a friend of Jessica claims she's "a bit wild and goes out a lot".

    Mind you, Harry's off to Arizona for more flight training in a couple of weeks so maybe it's just a holiday romance.

    What do you think - will Harry end up with someone from royal circles or break the mould with a normal girl? Leave a comment below...

    At least Harry manages to keep his romantic moments off camera. Not so these amorous celebs...

    Call us cynical but we always assume the annual 'X Factor in crisis' rumours are all just part of the big Simon Cowell ratings-boosting machine.

    But new 'head judge' Gary Barlow has confirmed that all is not well on talent show TV.

    The Take That star admitted that the boss had been in touch, saying: "Simon said if you can work at the show and make it 10 per cent better each week, by the end of the series of the show will be 50 per cent better."
    Yeah... good luck with that Gary.

    While he admitted he and fellow judges Tulisa, Kelly and Louis Walsh need to "up our game", Gary had a few harsh words for the contestants too.

    "The trouble with the artists this year is they are all obsessed with Twitter and headlines," he told The Sun. "It feels like they are all getting a bit above themselves."

    Er... has he never seen the show before?

    "I had a word with all my contestants and I know Kelly Rowland had a word with hers," Gary added. "It's reality check time."

    Hmm... we think he's talking to you, Frankie Cocozza.

    The boys' mentor went on: "On Monday morning I was thinking I'd made the wrong choice picking him. I'm doing well with Craig and Marcus but it's Frankie, I just can't ever track him down."

    Did you try the London nightspots, Gary?

    But it's when it comes to Louis and his annual novelty act Jonny Robinson that Mr Barlow really lets loose.

    "I think I have seen [Louis] once at the house with the contestants," he revealed. "He is in Dublin all week. He doesn't really care.

    "Louis says his acts are focused. That is just panto talk - he uses the same lines every week and if I say a good line he nicks that too."

    Finally, Gary added: "The joke is over for me with Jonny. I'm not like Louis, he's just here to have a good time on a Saturday night. I'm here to find a star and it's not Jonny."

    What do you think - was Gary wrong to put Frankie through, is Jonny a joke and can the X Factor survive without Cowell? Leave your comments below...

    Long before Frankie had a long list of girls names tattooed on his bum, Kitty sought fame and Johnny asked Gary Barlow to rub his lantern, they were all innocent little children. Play our Guess Who? game with these childhood pics of the X Factor contestants.
