Hello Batman, this is Commissioner Jordan calling

Katie Price definitely gets her fair share of the blame for the problems in modern British society, but it seems as though the glamour model-turned-businesswoman may have decided it's time to put something back.

The 33-year-old is reported to have registered an interest in taking on one of the elected police commissioner roles being created by the government - and has even suggested that she moved to Hampshire expressly for that purpose.

And yes, we have checked our calendar. And no, it definitely isn't April 1 today - so we're going to have to assume that this story is real and not the obvious hoax it would be if published on April Fool's Day.

The surprising news appears to have been leaked to The Guardian newspaper by a concerned party in "the job" - and it seems she's not the only famous name considering throwing her hat into the ring.

Former Crimewatch presenter Nick Ross has also expressed an interest, as has Iraq veteran Colonel Tim Collins.

The posts would see a publicly elected official appointing chief constables and managing the police budget - an idea which many within the force are uncomfortable with.

But maybe that's just because they haven't seen the picture of KP above yet? OK, it is 10 years old but how could we resist breaking it out again?

Jennifer Aniston voted sexiest woman in the world... EVER

She's no stranger to Hollywood hottie lists but now A-list lovely Jennifer Aniston has been voted the Sexiest Woman of All Time.

Why did the readers of Men's Health magazine put Jen at the top of the list? The publication speculated that it's because "funny is sexy" and her "down-to-earth persona makes her seem attainable".

The fact that she's got a rockin' hot body is just an added bonus.

The 43-year-old can afford herself a little smile though because Angelina Jolie, the woman who nicked her hubby Brad Pitt, only came in 10th.

Pipped at the post by Ms Aniston were Raquel Welch, Marilyn Monroe, Britney Spears and Madonna, while Ursula Andress, Bettie Page, Pamela Anderson and Jane Fonda also made the top 10.

Neither of Jen's own choices made the top 10, however.

She told the mag, "It's a tie between Brigitte Bardot and Gloria Steinem. But if I had to choose one, I'd say Gloria because, well, she's the full package. That's sexy."

Kelly Brook's BF: 'My mum won't let me propose'

There are very few genuinely unexplained mysteries left in the world now: the Mary Celeste, the Nazca Lines, the popularity of Justin Bieber - and of course the fact that the delightful Kelly Brook is still unmarried at 32.

We're only joking of course, but it seems her current beau Thom Evans has been warned off of popping the question to Kels by none other than his own mum.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, the 26-year-old former rugby player said: "My mother says I have still got plenty of time to settle down and has advised me not to get married yet.

"The thing is Kelly is six years older than me. I don't mind her being older. It's not a bad idea to have an older woman, because, as my mother says, women live a lot longer than men, so it makes sense.

"So contrary to popular belief, we are not getting engaged or married."

Psst Thom, a word to the wise, you might want to stop using the word "older" so much when talking about Kelly in future.

Kelly denies X Factor tipsy rumours

The X Factor judge Kelly Rowland has taken to Twitter to deny that she had been at the sherry before last night's live final, in response to speculation about her over-excited behaviour.

The 30-year-old seemed a little out of character as she wished Little Mix a "merry frickin' Christmas" and asked presenter Dermot O'Leary to repeat a question because: "I have no idea what you just said!"

And her over-enthusiasm prompted viewers to start speculating that she may have been enjoying the hospitality in the show's green room.

One fan tweeted: "Kelly Rowland IS DRUNK! what was that exchange Dermot?! not very professional. not very Kelly Rowland we've seen so far."

Kelly's repeated use of the phrase "y'all" also raised eyebrows among viewers.

But Kels hit back on her own Twitter feed, saying: "Nice try, but I wasn't under the influence, in ANY way..........just overwelmed by the crowds cheers!"

Hmmm, we'll give you the benefit of the doubt this time then Kelly.

Little Mix claim victory in X Factor final

Girl group Little Mix have triumphed in this year's The X Factor, beating Marcus Collins in the live final at Wembley Arena.

The foursome, who were put together from the solo entrants at the audition stage, have become the first group ever to win the ITV1 talent show.

They were jubilant on hearing the news, only able to screech and say "oh my god!" for a couple of minutes.

Then Jesy managed to just about get a sentence out, saying: "This is never gonna sink in, we cannot thank the public enough."

The girls had emerged as the favourites over the last week, also seeing off the previous favourite Amelia Lily in the Saturday night show.

There were no hard feelings from Marcus though, and he said: "These girls really deserved it."

The "Little Muffins", as mentor Tulisa rather embarrassingly referred to them, performed a memorable version of Silent Night - prompting some wild praise from judge Louis Walsh.

He said: "I'm going to predict this time next year this is going to be the biggest girl band in the UK by a mile."

You want our predictions? OK then: Kelly won't be back next year (y'all). Tulisa will guest on several Little Mix tracks and then join them when her solo career falters, Marcus will be in Chicago on the West End stage inside 18 months.

Oh, and Tulisa's sideways arm gesture will still look rubbish next year.

Little Mix surprise favourites to win X Factor (VOTE)

Never before had a girl group made it beyond about week three of the live shows on The X Factor, but it's now starting to look as though Little Mix could go all the way.

The foursome are now the bookies' favourites to win the TV talent show tomorrow night, as well as topping viewer polls.

William Hill and Paddy Power have them on very poor odds of 5/4, while Ladbrokes and Coral have them on 11/8.

In contrast it's easy to get a wager on Marcus Collins at 2/1 - while the previous favourite Amelia Lily is languishing in third place in the odds at around 5/2.

Meanwhile The Sun has reported that show supremo Simon Cowell wants the girls to become "the new Spice Girls" and send them out on a joint tour with One Direction.
