    One of ONTD's fave boyfriends and girlfriendsTom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton– will come to slay you with their awesomeness and will soon become one of your fave cinematic OTPs this April with the US release of their uber-cool vampire love story, "Only Lovers Left Alive", directed by Jim Jarmusch. In this post, Swinton talks about life on Planet Tilda with the Daily Mail while Metro rounds up some of Hiddleston's best celebrity impressions.


    She possesses all the attributes of the quintessential English aristocrat: aquiline features, a haughty froideur and the self-assurance that privilege bestows. Indeed, actress Tilda Swinton– daughter of the former Lord Lieutenant of Berwickshire, Major General Sir John Swinton– can trace her family’s lineage back to the 9th Century.

    But beneath that self-contained exterior beats the impassioned heart of an ardent patriot. And a Scottish one at that.

    I am not English, I am Scottish,’ the 53-year-old actress insists over tea when we meet in a Beverly Hills hotel, thousands of miles from her home overlooking the Moray Firth in Nairn in the north of Scotland.

    There is all this talk of independence for Scotland,’ she adds briskly. ‘But for my money, and speaking as a Scottish person who actually lives there, Scotland already is an independent country. And it has been for a very long time. It is England that hasn’t been independent of us. I went to boarding school in England, so I associate poor England with going back to school and it is less attractive to me, I’m afraid.’

    It is clear that despite long spells abroad while filming and the need to maintain a presence in Hollywood, for Tilda, the lure of her Scottish homeland is strongly ingrained.

    There’s something about being Scottish,’ she says, her piercing eyes blazing with pride. ‘You can’t find a Scottish person who won’t burst into tears when they hear the bagpipes. Even if they’re in Beverly Hills. I live in the far north of Scotland, which is so beautiful. We Scots all love nature. I think we’re wired for the hills and sea. And where my family live is a very beautiful sort of semi-wilderness that really suits us. It’s so green. Sometimes, when I’ve been in America and I go home, it’s so green that I have to literally rub my eyes as I look out of the aeroplane window.

    Tilda created a bridge between her life as a film actress and her life in the remote Highlands by setting up her own film festival, renting a ballroom in Nairn to screen films. And to bring art-house cinema to the most remote parts of Scotland she and a group of volunteers mounted a mobile cinema screen on a truck and drove it around the countryside.

    Though Tilda’s career, in which she has switched effortlessly between art-house pictures and box-office hits, takes her abroad for long periods of the year, the birth of her twins, Xavier and Honor, 16 years ago made her realise the depth of her feeling for the Scottish countryside. Though she was born in England,  her father’s career in the British Army meant the family travelled constantly. But they never missed an annual holiday at the family home in the Scottish lowlands. Her family moved there permanently when she was 13.

    Tilda’s life took her away from Scotland again in her early 20s after she moved to London to pursue her acting career, but the moment she gave birth, she knew she had to raise her children north of the border. ‘I’ve lived there ever since,’ she says. ‘A lot of people who come from small countries are desperate to get out when they grow up. But I was the opposite.’ She explains that she is attracted to the simple way of life in Nairn and the absence of all the more shallow aspects of her profession.

    She says: ‘When I’m at home, I’m not into material things. I don’t even own a television. Money goes a long way in Scotland. I’m not much of one for looking in the mirror. If I look good, it’s to do with good genes, living in the Highlands of Scotland, not wearing make-up when I don’t have to, and just the luck of the draw. I wear what I want to wear, and am lucky to have friends who are designers who make me beautiful clothes to wear in public. But I turn into a pumpkin when I go home. These days I wear a lot of my son’s cast-offs – I can do this because he’s taller than me. And when I cook, it’s with vegetables I grow and eggs from my hens. I’m a really Scottish peasant cook. I could cook you a fine Thai curry but really I prefer nursery food – shepherd’s pie and milk puddings and soups.’ (OP: omg yaaassss Gwyneth Paltrow must be crying over her Maldon sea salts and overpriced organic kale at this)

    With an Oscar for her role as a ruthless lawyer opposite George Clooney in the movie Michael Clayton, Tilda is following a great tradition of fine British actresses – from Vanessa Redgrave to Dame Helen Mirren and Dame Maggie Smith– to have won acclaim on stage and screen. She has had a string of successful roles in films such as Vanilla Sky, The Beach, Orlando (in which she had a gender-bending role as a nobleman who becomes a woman) and The Chronicles Of Narnia.

    So Tilda is no stranger to the red carpet. But it is not her acting prowess alone that attracts attention. Her artistic range – a mix of Edith Sitwell and Coco Chanel– is truly unconventional and an endless source of fascination. With her porcelain skin, blunt, peroxide-blonde hair and rangy, six-foot tall frame, she has an angular, androgynous appeal. Tilda has admitted she has been mistaken for a man on many occasions, especially at airport security. 'I think I should probably wear more lipstick’.

    Her interest and indeed participation in avant-garde art only helps create more fascination. In March last year, she slept in a box as part of an art exhibit called The Maybe at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. She shrugs off questions about her quirky and very individual looks. ‘I’m not sure I know what people mean when they say I look different,’ she says. ‘Different from what? And if I do like different, so what? Vive la difference.’ She wasn’t always so sanguine, however, about her appearance. It was her lookalike, David Bowie, for whom she appeared in a video last year for his album The Next Day, who enabled her as a teenager to overcome her insecurities about looking different.

    ‘When I was 13 or 14 I bought a copy of [the Bowie album] Aladdin Sane, even though I didn’t even own a record player,’ she has said. 'I had it for a year before I even heard it because I hadn’t bought it for the music but because of the cover. It was the image I was attracted to. He looked so like me, he could have been my cousin. He looked like he came from the same planet as me. It was a great comfort to me, looking as I did. It gave me great comfort at the time that not only did someone else look like this, but felt proud enough to stick themselves on the front of an album with a lightning zig-zag across their face... So he’s always felt like a cousin even though I’d never met him. Then, last year, the phone rings and it’s someone who calls them self David Bowie and you can’t stop pinching yourself. ’

    Of course, the camera adores Tilda’s unusual appearance. At the moment she is in Los Angeles to promote her new film Only Lovers Left Alive, the story of two vampires who have been in love for centuries, directed by Jim Jarmusch. Meanwhile, Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel, in which she plays the glamorous and elderly Madame D, is receiving critical acclaim. Tilda began acting at West Heath Girls School in Kent (Princess Diana was a contemporary). But it was at Cambridge University that Tilda’s talent and avant-garde appeal set the stage alight. She joined the Royal Shakespeare Company and made the transition to films in the 1980s. She became an art-house icon after becoming the muse of British independent film director Derek Jarman.

    In 1985 she met John Byrne, the artist and playwright whose television series Tutti Frutti won six BAFTAs. They became lovers and he is the father of her twins. Though still very close, the couple are no longer living together. In 2008 Tilda’s new boyfriend, German-born artist Sandro Koppwho is 18 years her junior– moved into the Nairn home she shared with John. For several years John, who is two decades older than Swinton, stayed at home with the children when she travelled abroad with Sandro for her career. Sandro is a talented artist who paints via the internet messaging service Skype, as a way of taking the 19th Century art of portrait painting into the internet age. They met on the set of The Chronicles Of Narnia in 2004 when Tilda played the White Witch and Sandro was a centaur. The pair and John seemed to co-habit happily. John has since moved out although he is remains a frequent visitor. Tilda insists she never thought the arrangement unconventional.

    It’s all quite boring really,’ she says. ‘The father of my children and I are good friends and I’m now in a very happy other relationship. And we’re all really good friends. It’s a very happy situation. Life doesn’t have to be complicated. You just have to have compassion with yourself and stop blaming yourself when things do get complicated.

    Her private life, she believes, is more defined by her children than her partners. Motherhood, she says, has changed her utterly.

    Being a parent is a sacrifice. One really does give up a lot and there is a part of you that does die. Hopefully, one gets a lot back. There is a certain joyful chaos that comes with having children, which suits me fine as I’m too lazy to want much control. They are great kids and I’m a very hands-on mother. They say that if you hug your babies they will grow. Well my two are enormous.’ Born the only girl in a family of four children, Tilda herself longed for a sister as a child. So she is especially pleased that her twins were not both boys or both girls. ‘It’s so sad not to have a sister. I wanted one so much and my brothers were always teasing me so I couldn’t get away with anything. Although we are all very close now. And I spent most of my time wearing their cast-off clothes.’

    Before the birth of the twins, Tilda bought into the belief that there was no inherent differences between the sexes. Perhaps this explains her penchant for playing androgynous roles. Today, she says she now realises she got that wrong. ‘Fate had a good joke by giving me a boy and a girl,’ she smiles. ‘That was a real lesson. ‘When my son was just six months old he would pick up a piece of soap and go ‘‘brrr-brrr’’ and pretend it was a car. That’s the way it works. There very definitely is a big, big difference. That said, my children have more to teach me about being relaxed than I can ever teach them. They are very balanced and very easy to be around. They are into life and are very happy children. They are at ease in the world. Which is nice. We are a close-knit family. We laugh and enjoy each other’s company. Dancing is a passion in our household and we do it as often as we can. We do it in a way that is totally insane and absolutely not to be witnessed by anybody. But we have the best time. Rocking about with my sweetheart and my children in the kitchen.’


    Tilda Swinton has become the latest celebrity to experience Tom Hiddleston’s knack for uncanny impressions.

    Tilda stars in the Jim Jarmusch-directed vampire flick Only Lovers Left Alive with Hiddleston, and revealed that her co-star spent a lot of their time together dazzling her with impressions.

    Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, she said: ‘We just sort of chewed it and had a great time. We were nocturnal quite a lot, and we played all sorts of silly stuff. He does quite a lot of impressions pretty constantly.

    While admitting she hadn’t heard Tom do an impersonation of her she added that ‘I have seen his Jim Jarmusch and its very good!

    Hiddleston has been getting Hiddlestoners hot under the collar with his scarily accurate mimicry, but which impression is the best? Here’s our (not definitive) ranking.

    #5 : CHRIS EVANS

    Captain America Chris Evans has starred with Hiddleston in Marvel’s Avengers Assemble and Thor: The Dark World (albeit briefly), and the pair have done quite a few press rounds, so its unsurprising that Tom has got Evans’ mannerisms on point.

    Verdict: While cute, it’s not one of Tom’s better ones though, and nothing beats Evans’ actual speaking voice. Nothing.


    Tom appeared in a really cute skit with Cookie Monster, teaching him the benefits of delayed gratification (Hiddleston’s words, not ours). In a later interview he was asked to give his best impression of the Sesame Street favourite, with hilarious results.

    Verdict: Great effort and even adds the chewing sound effect, but as the actor says himself, he makes the Cookie Monster sound Hungarian. Fine-tune it and try again, Tom!


    Proving that anything Benedict Cumberbatch can do, he can do better, Tom’s Alan Rickman impression is possibly the one that started it all.

    Verdict: Brilliant. Tom’s smooth speaking voice lends itself well here, and the fact he’s in his Loki get-up makes it all the more hilarious.

    Ever wonder who the most famous Canadian is? Researchers at MIT have deduced — by entirely scientific means — that it is Avril Lavigne.

    A recently launched Massachusetts Institute of Technology online research project proposes to quantify fame throughout history, with an interactive website called Pantheon.

    Researchers have collected data on people from 4,000 B.C. to 2010 who had a Wikipedia entry under their name in more than 25 languages. According to MIT researchers, longevity helps. So do tangible achievements more than wealth.

    The world's who's who through time is fun to play with — it's categorized and cross-referenced by place of birth and domains of fame. While painters, philosophers and scientists top many lists, Avril Lavigne, Jim Carrey, Justin Bieber, Celine Dion and Pamela Anderson make up the top five famous Canadians in Pantheon rankings.

    There are 121 Canadians over all who made the list, including writers (Margaret Atwood, Leonard Cohen), politicians (Stephen Harper, Pierre Elliott Trudeau), athletes (Wayne Gretzky, Terry Fox) and even porn stars (Sunny Leone, Shyla Stylez).

    CAA has signed actor Taylor Kitsch. Here’s the guy who – after playing one of the great recent TV characters in fullback Tim Riggins on Friday Night Lights and then a small but showy role as Gambit in X-Men Origins: Wolverine– seemed like he was going to be the next big leading man. That was before he suffered a hellacious summer when the two big movies he starred in, John Carter and Battleship, both flopped.

    But Kitsch has put himself back on the track with a good showing in the Oliver Stone-directed Savages and most recently playing the Medal of Honor-winning Long Island-bred Navy SEAL Michael Murphy in the Peter Berg-directed Lone Survivor. Kitsch was last repped by WME but has been agent-less this year until now. He continues to be managed by Untitled Entertainment, and he next stars in the ensemble of HBO’s adaptation of the Larry Kramer play The Normal Heart, directed by Ryan Murphy.

    Jason Aldean once claimed his fling with Brittany Kerr was in the past. Well, now it's firmly in the present.

    The country singer, 37, and the American Idol alum famously got cozy while he was still married. Aldean apologized profusely at the time, saying it was a one-time mistake, but it put a strain on his 11-year marriage to wife Jessica.

    Hey Guys – I wanted to talk to you directly, so you were hearing the truth from me and not just reading allegations made about my personal life on gossip web sites. The truth is that I screwed up. I had too much to drink, let the party get out of hand and acted inappropriately at a bar. I left alone, caught the bus to our next show and that's the end of the story. I ultimately ended up embarrassing my family and myself. I'm not perfect, and I'm sorry for disappointing you guys. I really appreciate being able to work through this privately with my family and for all your continued support."

    Six months after that, Aldean filed for divorce. And now, another year on, Aldean is dating Kerr, PEOPLE has confirmed.

    The pair have been keeping a low profile, but Kerr was spotted at one of Aldean's concerts recently.

    “You know, obviously there were things going on in my marriage at the time where it just wasn’t really happy,” Jason said of the kissing scandal. “You go out and you kind of let your guard down a little bit and things happen, and unfortunately… It’s tough.”

    Aldean had been with Jessica since they were teenagers. They have two daughters together. "She will always be important to me because she is the mother of my children, and I know that we will both always make our daughters our No. 1 priority," Aldean said last year as they were splitting up.

    They play lovers onscreen and deny that their relationship has developed off screen, too.
    But Divergent co-stars Shailene Woodley and Theo James looked very much like an item when they turned up at a private screening of their movie hosted by Summit Entertainment to benefit AllItTakes.org at Muvico Theaters in Thousand Oaks, California, on Monday evening.
    The hunky 29-year-old had his arm protectively around Shailene's shoulders as she pulled him close to her.

    And they both had THAT smile on their faces that seemed to show how much they enjoyed each other's company.
    The pair were casually dressed for the screening, which benefitted the not-for-profit organisation set up by the 22-year-old actress and her mother, Lori, in 2010. It aims to create positive change among young people locally and globally through education.
    Shailene wore a black leather motorbiker jacket over a grey hoodie, lace-knit vest and distressed Daisy Dukes that showed off her beautiful legs. Her brunette tressed were pulled into an updo that showed off her makeup-free face.
    Theo looked cool in a blue checked shirt and black trousers, with his wavy dark blond hair neatly trimmed.

    The couple, who also took part in a Q&A at the screening, have been inseparable over the past few weeks as they jetted around North America and Canada to promote Divergent.
    With rumours swirling of a possible romance, Shailene and Theo played up to them with a rather tactile display on NBC's Today Show in New York on Wednesday.
    In the studio to talk about Divergent, which hits cinemas on March 21, the pair displayed their easy rapport and obvious chemistry, with Shailene resting her hand on her co-star's thigh while the British hunk put his arm casually around the back of the sofa behind her.

    While they certainly wouldn't be the first co-stars to fake a 'romance' to drum up publicity for their project, it's yet to be seen if anything will actually happen between the pair.
    However, with another two films to shoot in the trilogy - based on the novels by Veronica Roth - the sensible star will likely be keen to stick to her tried and true formula of not dating co-stars.

    Saturday Night Live's Vanessa Bayer, The Perks of Being a Wallflower star Ezra Miller and wrestler John Cena are in talks to join Trainwreck, a comedy to be directed by Judd Apatow and starring Amy Schumer.

    The plot of the comedy, which will also star Brie Larson, Bill Hader and Colin Quinn, is currently being kept under wraps. Schumer, a stand-up comedienne and star of Comedy Central TV series Inside Amy Schumer, wrote the script. Apatow is also producing.

    Tilda Swinton, Barkhad Abdi, Mike Birbiglia and Jon Glaser are also in talks to join the project.

    Universal has slated for release on July 24, 2015.

    Bayer joined Saturday Night Live in 2011. Her impersonations have included Miley Cyrus, Hillary Clinton, Kourtney Kardashian and Fox & Friends host Gretchen Carlson, and some of her most memorable reoccuring characters are Jacob the Bar Mitzvah Boy and the porn star-turned-aspiring-pitchwoman Becky. She's repped by WME and Mosaic.

    Miller played Patrick in the hit coming-of-age film Perks of Being a Wallflower, and starred as the titular character in the drama We Need to Talk About Kevin. Repped by Paradigm and Hamilton Hodell in the U.K., Miller's upcoming films include an adaptation of Madame Bovary with Mia Wasikowska.

    Cena is a professional wrestler with 11 reigns as WWE Champion. He's made appearances in a few films, including Camp Fred, The Reunion and Legendary and appeared on TV’s Psych. He's repped by ICM Partners.

    While Marvel Comics first thought to bring superhero characters together as a team all the way back in the early 1960s, it took much, much longer for Hollywood to catch on to the concept. Of course, that all began to change in 2008 when the end credits of Jon Favreau’s Iron Man featured a post-credits sequence introducing Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury – a man looking to put a special team together. In the six years since that initial blockbuster, the studio has worked to create a unique franchise known as the Marvel Cinematic Universe – a franchise built out of multiple comic book-based franchises all housed under one roof – and after a string of box office hits and critical darlings Marvel is now considered king of the comic book movie world. Their success has been so great, in fact, that it’s earned it’s very own special on ABC.

    Later tonight the network will debut Marvel Studios: Assembling A Universe, an hour long inside look behind everything that the comic book company has been working both in the last six years and in the future. We were fortunate enough to get an early look at the special, so read on to find out what you can expect!

    There Is Definitely Plenty Of New
    As popular as Marvel is, ABC wouldn’t have gotten away with creating a special about the studio if it didn’t include any info on upcoming features, but that’s fortunately not really a problem. Because the show follows Marvel’s history chronologically you have to wait a bit to get to the really good stuff, but when it arrives there’s plenty of it.
    Because it’s the film that is closest to its actual release date, Captain America: The Winter Soldier is the upcoming movie that’s covered most in-depth in the special, and audiences will be treated not only to some new footage but also a great peek at what makes the heroes and villains in the story tick. Also showcased is some never-before-seen test and behind-the-scenes footage from James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy that gives viewers a closer look at characters who didn’t get much attention in the feature’s first theatrical trailer. Viewers will also get an exclusive sneak peek at Joss Whedon’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron, though that footage was not included in press screeners.

    But Most Of It Is Covering The Old Stuff
    Marvel Studios is a company that loves to keep secrets about its upcoming projects while also pointing to their past successes, so it should be of little surprise that most of Assembling A Universe examines the already-finished projects that the studio has made, including Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America: The First Avenger, The Avengers, Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World.
    It’s true that this will probably make the program a little less stimulating for fans who obsess and analyze every bit of news that comes out about Marvel, but as one of those fans I can also promise you that you’ll probably still learn something new (I personally didn’t know the funny story of how Marvel first approached Clark Gregg about how he was going to die in The Avengers, but now I do!). Some films definitely get more attention than others, with the first Iron Man and The Avengers dominating most of the screentime, but it works and is understandable given how important both of those projects were for the studio.

    It’s Not Just About The Movies
    The feature films are really what made Marvel Studios into what it is today, but as the popularity has grown so has the number of mediums. In recent years the comic book company has been experimenting with both special short films called One Shots and even with television thanks to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. Both get their time in the spotlight during the ABC special.
    Interesting as it is to look back at what we’ve seen so far from the various One Shots and the premiere show, however, unlike with the films it is disappointing that there was no talk about the future. Not only is Hayley Atwell attached to star in a 1940s set show called Agent Carter - based on her character from Captain America: The First Avenger, but the studio has also worked out a massive deal with Netflix that will see the creation of Daredevil, Iron Fist, Luke Cage and Jessica Jones shows and eventually a Defenders miniseries. Unfortunately none of these projects are so much as mentioned in the special.

    As With All Things Marvel, Stay Through The End Credits
    As mentioned earlier, the Nick Fury post-credits scene in Iron Man was really the spark that lit the fuse on the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and with the exception of The Incredible Hulk every feature since has kept up the tradition of having a special treat for fans who don’t bolt for the exit once the movie is over. Marvel Studios: Assembling A Universe doesn’t have a post-credits sequence per se, but you definitely should be paying attention when the names of gaffers and producers start getting listed across the bottom of the screen.
    I won’t give anything too big away – where is the fun in that? – but I will say this: there is a quick montage of clips from every film that Marvel Studios has made so far, and it actually doesn’t stop at Phase Two. What exactly am I talking about? You’ll have to tune it at 8:00pm ET/7:00pm CT to find out.


    the ending sounds intriguing! who's watching?

    OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network’s documentary series “Our America with Lisa Ling,” hosted by award-winning journalist and author Lisa Ling, returns to the network for its final season on Thursday, May 29 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

    After 44 episodes, the acclaimed series --- known for its thought-provoking look at American life and in-depth explorations of the nation’s most controversial issues --- will cap its last season with 10 one-hour episodes. With new topics including gun violence in Philadelphia, ADHD in American families, the largest foster care system in the country, criminal informants, the HIV epidemic in the African American community and the emotional story of a woman held captive for months, the new season features some of the most powerful episodes in the series’ four-season history.

    This season of “Our America” will also feature updates on past episodes. Lisa follows-up with three individuals on personal journeys to change their gender, as well as two young women originally featured on an episode about teen mothers. In addition, she revisits the controversial case of registered sex offender, Travis Iosue, who spent 16 years in prison for touching the breast of a young girl.

    “It has been an honor to be part of the launch and success of OWN and I am exceptionally grateful to the network and to Oprah for allowing me to produce the show of my dreams,” said host Lisa Ling. “I have never been more proud of anything I've ever done in my career and hope that our shows have enriched people and provoked them to think differently and with compassion about those who inhabit OUR AMERICA.”

    “Over the past three years, ‘Our America’ has cast a bright light into dark places, raised awareness of some of our country’s most controversial issues and provided a voice to those who are often not heard,” said Sheri Salata, president, OWN. “Lisa Ling’s top-notch journalistic work is the best in the industry, and we can’t wait to see her soar in her next chapter,” added Erik Logan, president, OWN.

    The season premiere of “Our America with Lisa Ling” is titled “Fighting Satan.” (Thursday, May 29 at 10 PM ET/PT). Many Americans believe that the devil is alive and well, which has sparked a growing movement in churches to fight him head on. Host Lisa Ling travels to Georgia and Florida to visit ministries that practice “deliverance” – where faith and the power of Christ are called upon to cast Satan’s demons from the emotionally tormented.

    Executive producer Rob Thomas has confirmed what fans of the Vertigo series probably have already deduced from the flurry of casting announcements: The CW’s "iZombie" pilot will deviate significantly from the source material by Chris Roberson and Mike Allred.

    “We’re not sticking that close to the comic,” the creator of "Veronica Mars" tells IGN. “The thing that we’re taking from the comic is this mid-20s female zombie who eats brains and gets the memories of the dead, but we put her in a coroner’s office, so there is sort of a ‘case of the week’ each week where she gets snippets of memories of the deceased and tries to solve the crime.”

    As Thomas’ comments underscore, the CW project is being billed as a supernatural police procedural, with Rose McIver ("Once Upon a Time", "Power Rangers R.P.M.") starring as Olivia “Liv” Moore, a med student-turned-zombie who teams with the medical examiner and a police detective to solve murder cases to silence the voices in her head.

    “What the studio and network asked for, they want a new sort of ‘cool’ female lead on The CW,” Thomas explains to the website, “they want something in the vein of "Buffy" or "Veronica Mars", so they asked me to write in the tone that I normally write in. It will not be "Zombie Apocalypse Show", it will be sort of fun, cool, smart, funny — a single-female lead who happens to be a zombie.”

    TheWrap reports the project has filled out its regular cast with the addition of relative newcomer Rahul Kohli as Dr. Ravi Chakrabarti, an enthusiastic nerd with a brilliant mind who becomes Liv’s friend, partner and confidant. He joins McIver, Nora Dunn, Malcolm Goodwin, Rahul Kohli, Robert Buckley, Alexandra Krosney and David Anders.

    Insurance mogul Neil Utley purchased the sprawling Hertfordshire mansion for £11.3million, after agreeing a cash deal with the famous couple a few months back.

    It was even reported that Mr Uteye, who is the chairman of Hastings Direct, also picked up an Aston Martin and two Jaguars as part of the deal.

    The 52-year-old moved into the 17-acre estate last month with his wife Narmali, 46, and the couple are said to be making very few changes to the seven-bedroom property.

    The estate boasts fake ancient ruins forming a playground, a professionally tended football pitch and a Capability Brown-style maze.

    It also comes with a second property, nicknamed mini-Beckingham Palace which comes complete with a recording studio, and indoor swimming pool, snooker room and a gym.

    The Beckhams bought the mansion in 1999 for £2.5million, just three months after their wedding.

    Their children Brooklyn, 14, Romeo, 11, and Cruz, eight, called it home for a few years before their move to Spain then Los Angeles because of their father's footballing career.

    It is believed that the high profile family pooled the money in from the profit made on the property as well as from the sale of a number of their luxury cars, to buy their£45million West London home.

    Entrepreneur Mr Utley was listed at number 462 in the 2012 Sunday Times Rich List - after making his fortune in insurance.

    However, he also has a number of other business interests in the UK.

    In 2006 he pocketed £13million after helping sell Equity Insurance Group, then Britain’s fifth-largest motor insurer, for a £140million profit 18 months after he and partners privatised it.

    And last November he cashed in on an alleged £135million after Hastings Insurance was sold to Goldman Sachs.

    pay those bills, Posh!

    RiRi might have touched down in NYC sans Drake, but he was obviously on her mind — in fact, she even wore his sweatshirt! Do you think it’s so cute that she swiped his hoodie? We’re so glad their relationship is still going strong!

    Rihanna and Drake have been living it up all over Europe, indulging in romantic meals and enjoying late nights in clubs — and it looks like their romance is still going strong! The 26-year-old songstress arrived in NYC on March 15, where we spotted her strolling through the airport in a casual get-up — but on closer inspection we realized that she was totally rocking Drake’s hoodie!

    RiRi arrived in loose-fitting, light denim jeans and an Alaïa shearling coat, as she kept the hood on the Pigalle sweatshirt up, concealing her head. She finished off her flying style with a pair of dark shades and a Stella McCartney backpack. The sexy Barbadian sister was fresh off a late night flight back from Paris, but that didn’t slow her down! In fact, the star headed right over to NYC hotspot The Raven to see her pal DJ Spade, where she spent the night drinking and dancing ’til the club closed — now that’s one way to beat jet lag! “Rihanna was with her cousin and two other friends and was drinking Corona all night,” an eyewitness tells us. “DJ Spade played reggae-ton and dancehall music, which RiRi LOVED! She was seen doing the “dutty hall” dance and sipping on coronas.”

    While RiRi looked casual and comfy while she rocked the sweatshirt in NYC, Drake was the first to show off the style as he paired it with black pants, boots, and a black jacket.

    Although they may be trying to keep their love quiet, RiRi rocking his sweatshirt totally sends out a major message — and we couldn’t be happier to see her proudly sport his hoodie! We just can’t get enough of this couple.

    Not the first time
