Those pesky paps are always around to catch every embarrassing moment - as Dannii Minogue found out last night.

Cringe!
 
Dannii looked completely stunning as she posed in the doorway of the hotel, pouting and smiling for the cameras.
However, when it came to walking down the stairs, Dannii wasn't so graceful. With her foot caught in the bottom of her dress, Dannii tripped and ended up flat on her bum.
Dannii MinogueDannii Minogue managed to recover herself well. Copyright [REX]She managed to recover the awkward moment though, by pulling a face before laughing it off. We're liking her style.
The former X Factor judge looked gorgeous in a full length shimmery dress with a low cut neckline, showing off her perfect cleavage.
She also wore her hair in a quiff that Jedward would've been proud of.

She told Daybreak: "I would love to be back on TV here, the support that I've had has been incredible. It has been such a big ride for me being invited onto a big Saturday night show and I feel like a lot of people lived that with me. I'd love to come back and do something new."

Imogen Thomas faces Twitter backlash after blind remark

Despite being in a few D-List rows, Imogen Thomas hasn't ever really managed to offend anyone in the Twittersphere, until now.

Writing from her account today, Imogen mused about how nice she thinks it is to see blind people out and about.
The reality star posted: "I get really upset seeing a blind person. It's so lovely to see them out and about. Good on them!! We are so lucky x"
Unfortunately for Imogen, this tweet did not go down well with the people of Twitter and was inundated with angry tweets regarding the patronising comment.
One tweet read: Imogen Thomas' brain is a vacuous waste of space. She's happy to see blind people "out and about". #discrimination #whatat***"
 
Imogen then took to Twitter to try and resolve the situation.
She wrote: "That tweet was not meant to be offensive! Gosh!!! I was saying that were very fortunate. Ppl don't half jump down your throat!"
However, the damage had already done with people continuing to berate her comment.
Another tweeter wrote: "@Imogen_Thomas I don't think people are offended, rather just amazed at your ignorance and how simple you are. It is breathtaking!"
Imogen usually gets a better reception wehn she tweets pictures such as this. [Copyright @Imogen_Thomas]
The Big Brother star later deleted the controversial tweet before tweeting again to express her anger toward the reaction her misguided comment had caused.
"I can't believe how my tweet has been taken. I feel like whatever I say always gets twisted!!! Makes me sick!!!!!!!!!!!"
Imogen love, we think this is a classic case of think before you tweet.

Kate Middleton topless photos to be published by French magazine *shocked face*

ate Middleton has reportedly been photographed topless sunbathing in private grounds and a magazine in France is planning on printing the pictures.

Yes, another naked Royal!
What next? Prince Phillip appearing on his undercrackers on the Royal balcony?
In all seriousness though Kate is believed to be 'saddened' by the news the pictures may be printed.
We think it is one thing to take photos on a public beach, but if Kate wants to get an all over tan in private then she is as entitled as anyone else.
However, the magazine's editor says on Twitter: "We can say that after tomorrow's Closer, Harry will feel less alone ..."

Royal sources are saying that Prince William is particularly furious at the invasion of his wife's privacy and that his 'blood is boiling'.
Palace officials told Sky News that the couple learned of the pictures over breakfast and Prince William compared them to the media bombardment his mother Princess Diana faced before she died
The Palace says: "The Duke and Duchess are saddened their privacy has been breached. It's turned the clock back 15 years."

"They woke up to the story this morning and have seen the photos, which were taken at a private hotel by a private swimming pool."
They couple ars currently on tour in Malaysia, a predominantly Muslim country, intensifying the prospect of the scandal.
A mock up of the proposed cover of French Closer has been released in which you can see blurred images of the Dutchess in a bikini appearing to be undoing it.
The images come just weeks after her brother in law, Prnce Harry, was found in an equal state of undress when images were released of him playing 'naked billairds' in Las Vegas.

A 'grotesque and unjustifiable' invasion

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have said the publication of photographs showing Kate topless on holiday is a "grotesque and unjustifiable" invasion of their privacy.
French magazine Closer published the pictures today.


St James's Palace has confirmed the pictures are of Kate and in a statement said the royal couple are "saddened" by their publication.
The images show the Duchess topless on the terrace of a private house in France last week.
Prince William and Kate are said to have been "very angered" and believe a "red line has been crossed".


"The incident is reminiscent of the worst excesses of the press and paparazzi during the life of Diana, Princess of Wales, and all the more upsetting to The Duke and Duchess for being so," the palace said.
"Their Royal Highnesses had every expectation of privacy in the remote house. It is unthinkable that anyone should take such photographs, let alone publish them."


The palace said it is consulting French lawyers.
It added: "The Duke and Duchess remain focused currently on their Tour of Singapore, Malaysia, Solomon Islands and Tuvalu on behalf of HM The Queen."
The magazine's French website showed an image of its new front cover with a heavily pixellated photograph of the Duchess in a bikini apparently about to remove her top.
But the pictures were not pixellated in the magazine when it was published this morning.
The publication's editor, Laurence Pieau, wrote on her Twitter page on Thursday: "We can say that after tomorrow's Closer, Harry will feel less alone ..."
The pictures appear to have been shot using a long-lens camera from a distance and were allegedly taken while Kate and William were on holiday in France last week.
The Duke and Duchess were staying in Provence at a chateau owned by Lord Linley, the Queen's nephew.

William and Kate were told about the pictures before they visited the Assyakirin Mosque in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and had also looked at the images on the website.
The couple are currently on a Diamond Jubilee tour of southeast Asia and the South Pacific on behalf of the Queen.
The palace said once they had a break in their schedule the couple would "turn their minds to what, if any, action they wish to take".
The French edition of Closer magazine is published by a different company to the British edition.
In a statement Closer magazine UK said it "would never publish topless images of a member of the Royal family on its cover or otherwise".
Sky sources at Trinity Mirror, publisher of the Daily Mirror and People newspapers, say they were offered different pictures of the Duchess of Cambridge while on holiday in France but not ones of her topless.
They turned the offer down.
During the visit to the mosque earlier Kate wore a head scarf as she and her husband were greeted by the Imam.
Following Islamic rules, the couple removed their footwear before being shown inside.
They listened to readings from the Koran and were told about practices of Islamic observance, including preparations for prayer and the role of the mosque in the community.
Kate appeared unfazed as news of the pictures spread around the world. If she had been embarrassed then it didn't show.
And later a relaxed Duchess smiled and waved at Malaysians who had gathered to see her at a park in central Kuala Lumpur.
She stopped, chatted and joked with her husband as they made their way on foot towards a conference centre where the Duke delivered his first speech in the country.
The couple have left the Malaysian mainland and have flown to Kota Kinabalu, capital of the state of Sabah on Borneo, for the next leg of their tour.
Publication of the images revives the privacy row prompted by photographs that emerged last month of Prince Harry frolicking naked at a Las Vegas hotel.
The Sun was the only British newspaper to defy a Press Complaints Commission advisory note not to publish photos of the prince naked with an unnamed woman.
The Duke and Duchess arrived in Singapore on Tuesday and are currently in Malaysia before travelling on to Borneo, then the South Pacific.
Malaysia is a largely Muslim country with laws on public decency, making the timing of the pictures' emergence even more difficult.

Palace condemns topless photos

The publication of topless photographs of the Duchess of Cambridge by a French magazine has been condemned as "grotesque and totally unjustifiable" by St James's Palace.
In a strongly-worded statement, the palace compared it with the "worst excesses of the press and paparazzi during the life of Diana, Princess of Wales".

Lawyers were being consulted by royal aides after the images showing the future Queen wearing just a pair of bikini bottoms were published in the French magazine Closer.
William and Kate were said to be feeling "anger and disbelief" at the publication of the photographs, taken while on a private holiday.
The St James's Palace statement said: "Their Royal Highnesses have been hugely saddened to learn that a French publication and a photographer have invaded their privacy in such a grotesque and totally unjustifiable manner.
"The incident is reminiscent of the worst excesses of the press and paparazzi during the life of Diana, Princess of Wales, and all the more upsetting to the Duke and Duchess for being so.
"Their Royal Highnesses had every expectation of privacy in the remote house. It is unthinkable that anyone should take such photographs, let alone publish them. Officials acting on behalf of their Royal Highnesses are consulting with lawyers to consider what options may be available to the Duke and Duchess."
William and Kate are midway through a Diamond Jubilee tour of the Far East, which had been going well but is now likely to be overshadowed by the controversy. The photographs were taken last week while the couple were staying in Provence at a chateau owned by Lord Linley, the Queen's nephew, ahead of their trip.
St James's Palace said the royal couple would not let the controversy distract them. A spokesman said: "The Duke and Duchess remain focused currently on their tour of Singapore, Malaysia, Solomon Islands and Tuvalu on behalf of HM the Queen."
Publishers of the UK edition of Closer distanced themselves from the French magazine. They said the two publications made "entirely independent editorial decisions", and pointed out that the French magazine is published by a separate, Italian company. The UK's Closer magazine said it had no intention of publishing the topless pictures and had not been offered them.

Rebecca FergusonRebecca Ferguson is being sued by her former management. Copyright [WENN]However, the whole debacle has now become even more awkward, with Rebecca Ferguson no being sued by her former management company.
 
Apparently, the former managers are suing Rebecca for breach of contract and are looking for damages as well as 20% of her future earnings.
That's enough legal lingo for now.
At the time that Rebecca announced she was parting ways with her management, she called them 'vermin.' But the management have said she signed a five year contract with them, but sent them an email to terminate it early.
Rebecca FergusonRebecca Ferguson has said that she's now much happier. Copyright [WENN]They've even released the email where she tells them how miserable she was.
The email reads: "I am really unhappy with how I have been treated by you over the last couple of months and how miserable I have become.
"The deterioration of my health has not been relevant to you until this week when it reached another low point.
"I have lost all faith and trust in you as managers so I have no option but to terminate our working relationship with immediate effect."
Uh Oh.

Fight breaks out at Zac Posen’s New York Fashion Week show

Zac Posen after his SS13 show with models Coco Rocha, Naomi Campbell and Karolina Kurkova © RexZac Posen's spring/summer 2013 show was the talk of the fashion world yesterday after the likes of Naomi Campbell, Erin O'Connor, Karolina Kurkova and Coco Rocha united on the catwalk to showcase his collection of glamorous gowns - but it seems there was just as much drama going on in the audience. WWD are reporting that there was a kerfuffle regarding seating which resulted in a member of Posen's PR team being slapped.
 
Fire marshals apparently decided to remove 60 seats from the Avery Fisher Hall venue 30 minutes before the show was scheduled to start, causing great confusion for Posen's PR representatives, HL Group, who were attempting to seat attendees. French publishing executive José Susskind-Jalou, president of Jalou publishing house, and her daughters, Jennifer Eymere and Vanessa Bellugeon of Jalouse and L'Officiel magazines, were reportedly so irate that they had to wait to be seated that they left the venue, but not before shouting at HL Group cofounder Lynn Tesoro, who was attempting to find them seats.
The confrontation ended in Tesoro being slapped. When contacted, Jennifer Eymere took full responsibility for the incident, saying: "I said, 'Don't speak to my mom like this. You have to stop to speak like that.' I said, 'Be careful, I am going to slap you,' and she kept doing it, and it just happened.
 
"I am sorry, I know it's bad to do that," she added. "It was a small slap. It was not strong. I didn't hurt her, it was just to humiliate her. She humiliated my mom, and I humiliated her in front of her crew. VoilĂ . I just said at the end, 'Now you know you don't f--k with French people.'"

Posen reportedly apologised to Susskind-Jalou, Eymere and Bellugeon for the seating incident. it is not known whether Tesoro intends to press charges against Eymere.

TOWIE’s Chloe Sims: I’ve forgotten about Amy Childs

Amy Childs has ruffled a few feathers recently by giving her opinions on her former TOWIE co-stars.
Amy Childs and Chloe SimsChloe Sims has revealed she's 'forgotten' who Amy Childs is. Copyright [WENN]However, TOWIE's Chloe Sims told us at last night's TV Choice Awards that she doesn't care what she thinks - and has even forgotten who Amy Childs is.
Oooh, fighting talk.
 
Chloe Sims said: "I've really forgotten about Amy Childs. I ain't seen her about recently. Awkward."
She went on to imply that Amy shouldn't forget her TOWIE roots, saying: "She was tweeting about vajazzles last night - and that was on TOWIE wasn't it?"
Chloe's comments were in response to Amy's claims that TOWIE has become 'too fake.'
Chloe SimsChloe Sims got her pose on at last night's TV Choice Awards. Copyright [WENN]Amy recently said: "It's difficult to know what's real and what's fake anymore. It's sad because it could be perfect, but too much back-stabbing has ruined it."
Amy then went on to list some cast members that she thought should be axed from the show - including Chloe Sims.
Amy revealed: "I do think the viewers have seen enough of Mario Falcone and Lucy Mecklenburgh. We've seen a lot of this 'he's cheated, she's cheated' stuff and it has become a bit boring. I also think Lauren Pope and Chloe Sims have run out of storylines."
However, judging by Chloe's response, she isn't too bothered about Amy's suggestions.
