The World Cup presenter travelled from Moscow to Cardiff and back to Russia again to pay his respects
World Cup fever has gripped... well the world and for former footballer Gary Lineker it has been no different as the lead presenter on all international matches shown on BBC One. However, the caring sports star took time out of his stint in Russia and travelled back to the UK to attend the funeral of his ex-wife’s mother.
Gary Lineker and his ex-wife Danielle Bux have remained close since their split
The Match of the Day host made the dash back to England in between hosting duties and was in his home country for just one day.
A number of celebs, including Beckham, Ant & Dec and Gary Lineker, were among more than 1,000 who participated in the Ingenious scheme to fund the British film industry, which a judge has declared was illegal in terms of tax relief.
They are among more than 1,000 people who invested in the Ingenious film financing scheme in order to gain tax relief. The scheme, which helped produce massive movies such as Avatar, qualified for tax breaks designed to boost the British film industry.
However, HMRC contended that the scheme relied on artificial losses from the movies concerned, and that meant that Ingenious was not a legitimate investment opportunity but a tax avoidance vehicle.

Lineker reckons there should be a "mathematical equation" to simplify the whole process of divorce, and that lawyers simply "manipulate" the situation.
Gary Lineker has called for the divorce process to be simplified with a “mathematical equation” for the splitting of assets between former spouses, following his recent divorce from his second wife.
The 55 year old presenter and former England footballer has recently experienced the disintegration of his second marriage to model Danielle Bux, 19 years his junior. Announcing their split at the start of 2016, they said they were using a government website to streamline the process at a cost of just £400 after his previous experience with divorce lawyers.

Lineker has been married to Danielle Bux for six years.
55 year old ‘Match of the Day’ host Lineker and his 36 year old wife have apparently been living separately for almost a year, and a formal decree nisi bringing their marriage to an end has been handed down on Wednesday morning (January 13th) at Southampton County Court, according to a report in The Sun.
Despite Lineker’s reported £20 million fortune, the pair have apparently opted for a “value divorce”, costing £400 and filled out on a government website, with both of them apparently filling out the forms together.
Paul Gascoigne become a national legend for his skills on the football pitch, predominantly playing for Newcastle United, and reached a pinnacle of success when he brought England to fourth place in the 1990 FIFA World Cup. Well known for his emotionally-charged playing and passionate dedication, he was loved by all aspiring football players and deeply respected by his superiors. At the time he was probably the most talented midfielder in England, but away from the stadium he was also the most troubled. As his popularity grew, his life spiralled out of control. Revelling in nights of binge drinking and substance abuse brought him media attention for the wrong reasons, and the more he was exposed, the more he was driven to drink. 25 years on, his sobriety and mental health are continually tested, though for many his sporting legacy will never be overshadowed by the scandals.

Floods of tributes have been pouring in for the likable singer and actress Bernie Nolan.
Bernie Nolan, the actress and former lead singer of The Nolans, has died aged 52 following a long battle with breast cancer. After undergoing chemotherapy and having a mastectomy, Nolan was given the all clear in 2012, though the disease returned months later and spread to her brain, bones, lungs and liver.
"Bernie passed away peacefully this morning with all of her family around her," said a spokesperson for the family, "The entire family are devastated to have lost beloved Bernie, a wonderful wife, adoring mother and loving sister, she is irreplaceable."
Born on 17 October 1960, Nolan grew up in an entertainment troupe of five sisters and two brothers. She turned to acting following 20 years fronting the Irish all-girl group The Nolans, during which time she enjoyed success with hits including I'm In The Mood For Dancing and Don't Make Waves. The former track incorporated a timely disco beat that can still be heard on dance-floors up and down the country today. It featured Bernie's recognisable vocal and would become The Nolan's biggest and best-known hit, reaching No 3 in the UK and topping the charts in Japan, where it sold a monumental 600,000 copies.

No one throws a Halloween party like Jonathan Ross so it would seem! The great and the good of the celebrity world dressed up in their most unholy gladrags to attend a special party at the television presenter's house. Leading the way was (500 Days) Of Summer actress Chloe Moretz whose dripping black-painted make-up couldn't disguise a beaming smile from the teen star. Jamie Hince and Kate Moss were also in attendance, the musician and the model pulling off a damn fine look as Gomez and Morticia Addams from The Addams Family.

The movie's thesis is that the 1990 World Cup semi-final in Turin, between England and West Germany, was a pivotal moment in English football history. And they really work to make their case, starting with the economic and political chaos in Britain at the time, along with national outrage over England manager Bobby Robson, fuelled by vicious tabloid headlines. People were still feeling bruised by Maradona's Hand of God (in the 1986 World Cup quarter-final), and no one trusted the new hothead star Paul Gascoigne.

Brighton’s back 4 now Duffy is on must be the tallest combined in Premier League history.
Blimey, Brighton lead again and their win probability has just increased substantially.
Agreed, one replay was enough. Should never need more than a couple, otherwise it’s not clear... https://t.co/UBwFqJtJMm
That’s what VAR is for. The downright bloody obvious.
Germany do produce a plethora of decent keepers. Leno is another excellent goalie.
Just seen the Jonjo Shelvey goal. Was inevitable that this would happen at some point. Play to the whistle has never been more important.
This win probability thing is amusing. Who decides these percentages?
A thoroughly deserved lead for @OfficialBHAFC who’ve been terrific. @Arsenal by contrast have been awful thus far.
@warrenflanagan No bother. Love you too.
That’s quite a theory. https://t.co/UZ7D17uDOk
