Conrad Murray sentenced to four years in prison over Michael Jackson’s death…

 After being found guilty of Michael Jackson’s involuntary manslaughter earlier this month, Conrad Murray was back in court today to be sentenced.

He’s now been handed four years in the slammer, although it’s likely he’ll serve around half of that sentenc in a County jail.

The presiding judge refused Murray’s request for probation saying that evidence in the case had shown a: "continuous pattern of lies and deceit" making him ineligible for it.

During Murray’s sentencing the judge also said: "There are those who feel Dr. Murray is a saint. There are those who feel he's the devil. He is neither. He's a human being." 

Gary Barlow opens up about his weight loss…

 Gary Barlow has been speaking to Grazia magazine about how happy he is with trim physique and how he gets a kick out of people telling him he’s lost too much weight.

He said, “I'm at a weight that I'm just so bloody happy with and I feel amazing. I'm full of confidence.

“It's going to sound shallow, but being happy with the way I look makes me spring out of bed in the morning and want to live life.

“I can't say I don't get a little kick out of it. Me, too thin ... will wonders ever cease?”

The 40-year-old Take That star revealed how he ballooned to 17 stone during his darkest days and how his wife, Dawn stood by him and helped him face his demons.

“Dawn knows how weight has always been my enemy, how with every mouthful of food I have always felt guilty.

“I've actually had major problems with food for years and years. I realised that once I started to eat I couldn't stop.”

Janet Devlin has already landed herself a record contract…

 Despite her horrifically awkward TV performance on Saturday, Janet Devlin has already managed to bag herself a record contract.

What’s more, she managed to score an offer just half an hour after getting voted off the X Factor, and randomly by none other than Dragon’s Den star Duncan Bannatyne who co-owns a record label.

Speaking about their latest acquisition Ryan Ashmore, who runs RKA records with Duncan, said:

"With Janet’s amazing talent and great image I just had to put my offer out there. She is destined for success and I’m sure RKA and Janet can have a great relationship and achieve great things together”.

In that case, hopefully Janet can start singing songs she actually likes because she doesn’t seem too happy with the ones which were picked for her on the show. Speaking about them yesterday she said:

'To me the sad thing about X Factor, and it's brought me down a lot, is the fact that I've just been covering other people's songs.

'It got to the point where I felt like a karaoke artist every Saturday night.'

Has she never watched X Factor before? Did she not understand the premise of the show?

Jennifer Saunders steals the show as she turns on Stella McCartney’s crimbo lights...

 The Stella McCartney annual Christmas light switch on is always a predictably starry affair where a group of celebrities come together to bask in their collective brilliance for an hour or so.

So this year Stella decided to spice proceedings up a little by inviting her pal Jennifer Saunders to the bash in the guise of her Ab Fab character Eddie.

She apparently made jokes about the celebs in the crowd – including Kate Moss and Stella’s dad Paul McCartney – as she switched on the shop’s (really quite naff) festive lights with Emma Bunton.

Ab Fab will also be returning to our TV screens this Christmas.

Simon Cowell to return to Britain’s Got Talent…

 After seeing slightly lagging ratings on both X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent this year Simon Cowell has decided to return to the judging panel on BGT for the next series of the show.

Apparently he’s also trying to convince Barbra Windsor to join the programme too. AMAZING. A source down at ITV HQ said:

“Simon’s been focussing on US X Factor and viewing figures for his British shows have fallen. He won’t take chances with BGT.”

As much as we love Simon Cowell, will his presence on the show be that much of a ratings boost for it? Are people that desperate to see him on their TV screens again?

Surely he’d be better off altering the tired formula of his TV shows to entice people.
