Filming for the sixth series of 50 Cent’s show Power was brought to a standstill this week after a crew member died in a tragic accident.

Production assistant, Pedro Jimenez, was killed after being struck by an SUV on-set.

The show paid tribute to the 63-year-old crew member in a statement, saying:

Our thoughts are with Mr. Jimenez’ family as we work to fully understand what has happened.

50 Cent acknowledged the passing on Twitter, writing: “I just learned we lost Pedro Jimenez, a member of the Power production team early this morning. My prayers and condolences are with the entire Jimenez family.”

Miley Cyrus might be starring in an upcoming episode of Black Mirror.

Rumours have circulated in recent months as to whether or not the 26-year-old singer will be making an appearance in the next series of the hit show, but neither Miley nor the people behind the show have confirmed a role.

Yesterday, however, Miley’s older sister, Brandi, got the rumour mill swirling again while hosting her podcast, Your Favourite Thing With Wells & Brandi.

Brandi spoke about staying with Miley in Cape Town while she filmed a show, appearing to confirm earlier reports that suggested Miley’s trip to South Africa was in connection with an upcoming series of Black Mirror.
