There’s an all star cast of extras in the new Star Wars film. 

Princes William and Harry visited the set last year, and actor John Boyega let slip that they may have been on the cast list as a pair of Stormtroopers.

If you’re wondering how to spot them, they’ll be the two tallest ones – the guards are generally around 5’10″, but both Wills and Harry are over six feet tall.

Katie Price has left fans a bit puzzled after she segued from addressing a breakdown on Loose Women to promoting a phone case on Twitter. 

Price burst into tears on the panel show yesterday after talking about her mum, who has the same incurable lung condition that lead to the death of TV presenter Keith Chegwin. She said:

It might be my last Christmas with her… How can my mum die? I love my mum so much… I can’t do this, can I go?

After being ushered out of the studio by Ruth Langsford, she tweeted her fans to let them know she was OK – and to promote some personalised Christmas gifts.

This didn’t go down well with her followers, who accused her of using the whole thing as an opportunity to flog some merchandise.

“Wow have you no shame,” wrote one. “Is there nothing you wouldn’t do for a freebie?”(Mirror)

Mariah Carey paid homage to Manchester bombing victim Martyn Hett during her gig in the city at the weekend.

Hett, one of the 23 people killed when a bomb was detonated at an Ariana Grande concert in May, was a huge Mariah fan – the singer recorded a video message that was played at his funeral.

Manchester was the only stop besides London on her UK tour, and she told the crowd at the Manchester Arena:

I’m glad we got to bring our love to you here, especially this year, especially this building.

After the gig, she met with Hett’s boyfriend Russell Hayward, and slipped on a jacket that belonged to Martyn for a photo:

What a lovely tribute. (Metro)
