    Daybreak hosts Adrian Chiles and Christine Bleakley are rumoured to be facing the axe from the ITV breakfast show.

    The former One Show sofa pals ditched the BBC for lucrative contracts at ITV in 2010 but the GMTV replacement has struggled to pull in the early morning viewers.

    Now the Mail on Sunday has suggested both may be axed to save the show.
    The paper reports that a senior industry source claims Bleakley has already met with ITV's director of programmes, Peter Fincham, and been told her Daybreak days are numbered.

    Back in August, when ratings dropped to just 700,000, the highly-paid pair had their hours slashed (if not their pay packets), allowing Kate Garraway and Dan Lobb to host on Fridays.

    Yet the axe may not stop at Chiles and Bleakley because according to the Sunday Mirror, bosses are also hoping to replace Kate, possibly with one-time Sky News presenter Helen Fospero.

    An insider told the red top, "There's a big question mark over the whole direction of the show... The feeling is there will have to be big changes if the show is to survive. Bosses want a newsy edge."

    However, an ITV spokesman told the Mail yesterday, "Our line is Adrian and Christine are the presenters of Daybreak."

    Whatever the truth, it's unlikely to bother Adrian who already hosts That Sunday Night show as well as the broadcaster's football coverage.

    As for Ms Bleakley... maybe the WAG lifestyle is calling after all.

    What do you think - are you a Daybreak fan and what's your take on the Chiles/Bleakley partnership? Leave a comment below...

    Comedian Jimmy Carr has been slammed by Twitter users after posting a joke about a car crash this afternoon.

    Given the news of Friday's horrifying M5 accident, the funnyman's followers reacted with strongly-worded disapproval.
    The TV host and standup comic tweeted, "An couple married for 66 yrs died within 3 days of each other. That's nothing. My grandparents died on exactly the same day... car crash (sic)."

    One Twitter user advised Jimmy to "show a bit more respect" while another, plum842, tweeted, "@jimmycarr awful timing for a car crash joke, read the papers or put the news on... i think you'll be red faced & apologising fast!"

    Another simply wrote, "@jimmycarr perfect timing d**k head."

    It's not the first time Carr has found himself in hot water - back in 2009, he caused offense with a joke about armed forces amputees.

    On that occasion he claimed he had taken the criticism to heart.

    Perhaps Jimmy should rethink his idea of comic timing.

    What do you think - distasteful and insensitive or a storm in a teacup? Leave your comments below...

    Jimmy later added, "Very bad timing by me. The joke was obviously not about recent tragic events. Apologies if any offence caused."

    Pint-sized singer Lulu became the latest star to be voted off Strictly last night after her tango failed to ignite the judges' passion.

    Dancing to Prince's Kiss, Lulu and partner Brendan Cole started well but, despite guest judge Jennifer Grey saying the performance was "phenomenal", Craig Revel-Horwood slated the singer's head placement, shoulders and habit of miming to the song.

    Gracious in defeat, Lulu insisted her time on Strictly had been "amazing" and added, "I would never have missed it for a minute. It is just a lifetime's very special experience."

    Finding himself in the bottom two for the second week running, Audley Harrison joked that he is now "thinking like Beyonce - I'm a survivor, keep on surviving."

    Apparently it's working too because his "delicate" Viennese Waltz kept him in the show.
    Last week's standout performer Jason Donovan appears to be lacking in consistency as the judges criticised the absence of romance in his rumba, while Robbie Savage seemed to be out of confidence with his "tense and angry" (but hip-thrust free) waltz.

    The remainder fared well though - Alex Jones' quickstep was described as "effervescent" despite a last-minute fall, Holly's jive was "cool and sophisticated" and Anita Dobson was praised for capturing the "spirit of the Twenties" with her Charleston.

    We're pleased to say our resident Strictly blogger Russell Grant also remains a firm favourite - his paso doble might have been the "Benny Hill version" (so says Bruno Tonioli) but we've got a feeling he'll be dancing for some weeks to come.

    But the contestant that wowed this week was "fabulous flapper" Chelsee Healey. After last week's wardrobe malfunction, the Waterloo Road star's Charleston saw her topping the leaderboard with a score of 36.

    Plus, it gave Jennifer Grey, winter of last year's Dancing with the Stars in the US, a chance to use a Dirty Dancing reference.

    "You're the baby of the competition. But from one Baby to another, you keep dancing like that and nobody's gonna put you in the corner."

    Priceless.

    Sunday night's double elimination proved to be the X Factor's biggest shock so far as both The Risk and Johnny Robinson were sent home.

    Few could have predicted that Tulisa's boyband, show favourite Johnny and eccentric Kitty Brucknell would find themselves in the bottom three.

    But it was Frankie Cocozza's survival that really shocked viewers and it wasn't long before the inevitable "Fix Factor" was trending on Twitter.
    After the show, Frankie announced that he "literally couldn't believe" he was still in the competition.

    He wasn't alone.

    Following the shock announcement that Frankie would sing (sort of) another day, The Risk were revealed as the act with the fewest number of votes. They might have been surprised by the result but "lead singer" Charlie insisted The Risk would carry on.

    The Risk voted off X FactorKen McKay/Talkback Thames/Rex

    That left Louis' two remaining acts to sing for survival.

    Both Kitty and Johnny performed well in the sing off - the former showing off his power-packed high notes with Unchained Melody and the latter displaying her customary strong vocals (though we do wish she'd put a skirt on every now and then) with a performance of Kelly Clarkson's Beautiful Disaster.

    Unfortunately, the judges just couldn't visualise a massive global recording career for Johnny and voted unanimously to save Kitty.

    A tearful Louis insisted Johnny would "have a great career" and, gracious as always, the singer thanked judges and fans alike for "accepting me for being me".

    Is it just us or is next week's show going to seem a little bit dull without him?

    Did the right acts leave the competition on Sunday?

    That left Louis' two remaining acts to sing for survival.

    Both Kitty and Johnny performed well in the sing off - the former showing off his power-packed high notes with Unchained Melody and the latter displaying her customary strong vocals (though we do wish she'd put a skirt on every now and then) with a performance of Kelly Clarkson's Beautiful Disaster.

    Unfortunately, the judges just couldn't visualise a massive global recording career for Johnny and voted unanimously to save Kitty.

    A tearful Louis insisted Johnny would "have a great career" and, gracious as always, the singer thanked judges and fans alike for "accepting me for being me".

    Is it just us or is next week's show going to seem a little bit dull without him?

    There are times in celebland when our jaws literally hit the floor, and this is one of them. We barely recognised Dawn French when these pictures of the star dropped on our desk this morning.

    The comedienne is now a shadow of her former self after a dramatic weight loss, which has seen her drop from a size 20 to a size 16.

    Dawn showed off her amazing new figure on the red carpet of the Galaxy National Book Awards in London this weekend, rocking a LDB and a chic new 'do.

    We first saw the effects of Dawn's new healthier lifestyle after she appeared at the Glamour Awards back in June this year, but the comedienne has continued to shed the pounds.
    Dawn had already lost over four stone, but has continued her battle against the bulge - at her heaviest she tipped the scales at 19 stone with a dress size of 20, but is now an amazing size 16.

    She decided to ditch the chocolate bars she was famed for loving after having fears for her health.

    "I think when you're over 50, you kind of have to pay attention to your health a bit. I want to be there for my kid," she said at the start of her health kick.

    "I have quite a lot of exciting adventures that I want to do and I just ballooned up a bit more than I wanted to. But you can always address it. You just have to eat less and walk more - and that's what I'm doing."

    Dawn split with her husband of 25 years, Lenny Henry, last year and is now out on the dating scene again.

    And looking this good, we reckon it's only a matter of time before she's snapped right up.

    What do you think of Dawn's weight loss? Do you think she looks great or do you miss her roly-poly figure? Leave a comment below.
