Miley Cyrus is making her London press rounds - starting with Chatty Man!
In the past few weeks, Miley Cyrus has proven that, if anything, she knows how to keep people talking about her, making her the perfect guest on Alan Carr’s Chatty Man. Luckily for everyone, except perhaps those still scarred by her VMA performance, she didn’t forget to bring her foam finger, which unfortunately wasn’t utilized during her mandatory tweking session.
Miley's episode is set to air this Friday.
Of course, more observant viewers will note that during the show, which will air this Friday (September 13) at 10pm, Miley was sporting a different foam finger to the one she… um… violated during the VMAs. So perhaps she has a different one for every occasion? You know, the casual foam finger and then the evening wear foam finger she only whips out for award shows and the like. Really, with Ms Cyrus’ business savvy, we can picture her creating an entire industry around different styles of foam fingers.

Millie Mackintosh was actually one of the best dressed at the BAFTAs, but the harsh London weather was not in her favour.
Made in Chelsea star Millie Mackintosh had a nightmare from start to finish during her BAFTA's red-carpet arrival on Sunday evening (May 12, 2013). The 23-year-old reality star wore a pretty stunning looking Sass & Bide black dress, though the waist-high slits proved problematic as the wind and rain battered the Royal Festival Hall in London.
"I'm wearing Sass & Bide, first time I've worn a Sass & Bide dress. I'm a little bit worried about walking in it because it's slit up to here. But I love the dress, and it's quite a different look from what I did last year," she told The Sun on the red-carpet. Millie, who is engaged to rapper Professor Green, was attending the show to support her E4 show which was nominated for Best Reality and Constructed Factual Programme. And guess what. It won!
The result was a little controversial, though Alan Carr beat Ant and Dec to best entertainment performance for Chatty Man, so anything's possible at the BAFTAs. Elsewhere, James Bond actor Ben Whishaw won leading actor for his performance in Richard II (The Hollow Crown), beating out Sean Bean and theatre legend Derek Jacobi, while Sheridan Smith won lead actress for Mrs Biggs ahead of Sienna Miller and Rebecca Hall. However, the night belonged to revered actress Olivia Colman, who won the BAFTA for both supporting actress (Accused) and female performance in a comedy programme (Twenty Twelve).

The British Comedy Awards were held last night, presented once again by Jonathan Ross. It saw a room of the country's funniest people come under one roof to celebrate and ridicule one another, as is the British tradition.
Twenty Twelve and The Thick of It have been compared since the former hit screens in 2011. It satirises the shambolic organization of this year's the Olympic games, while The Thick of It satirises the inner workings of the British government. However, despite audiences loving Twenty Twelve and it receiving four nominations in the three categories that it's eligible for, it failed to take home anything. Both Olivia Colman and Jessica Hynes from the show were nominated for Best Actress, but they lost out to The Thick of It's Rebecca Front. It seems an odd snub given that everyone has been celebrating all things Olympic since it was revealed that London got the deal.
Another surprise was Jack Whitehall's voted win of King of Comedy for 2012. He was up against some serious comedy heavy weights that have done the circuit for years: Alan Carr, Lee Mack, David Mitchell, Graham Norton and last year's Queen of Comedy, Sarah Millican. Initial speculation had assumed David Mitchell would get the prize, for his many panel show appearances, Peep Show and That Mitchell and Webb Look. However, Whitehall has really broken through this year, with popular shows Bad Education and Fresh Meat, which are a lot better than they sound.
Olivia Colman has been nominated twice in the same category for the upcoming British Comedy Awards. The 39-year-old, perhaps best known for playing Sophie on Peep Show, is up for Best Actress for two BBC shows, Rev and Twenty Twelve.
The decision has left some comedy fans bemused, though the general consensus is that Colman has put in two excellent performances and therefore has every right to be nominated twice. She played Hugh Bonneville's character's long-suffering assistant Sally Owen in the London Olympics comedy and plays Tom Hollander's wife Alex Smallbone on religious comedy Rev. Though having two chances to win the award, Colman still faces stiff competition to land the gong, with Twenty Twelve co-star Jessica Hynes also nominated. The Thick Of It's Rebecca Front, who plays the MP Nicola Murray, is also up for Best Actress. Colman - now considered one of the UK's top actresses - has already had a superb year, winning a slew of awards for playing an abused charity shop worker in Paddy Considine's gritty drama Tyrannosaur.
Elsewhere at the comedy awards, The Thick Of It is one of five shows to receive three nominations, along with The Graham Norton Show, Rev, Cardinal Burns and Harry Hill's TV Burp. Steve Coogan picked up a couple of nominations for Alan Partridge: Welcome To Places In My Life. This year's King or Queen of Comedy will be contested by Alan Carr, David Mitchell, Graham Norton, Jack Whitehall, Lee Mack and Sarah Millican. The award winners will be announced live on Channel 4 on Wednesday 12 December.
News of Justin Lee Collins’ domestic abuse trial continues today. BBC News report that the TV presenter is accused of pushing his girlfriend into traffic. This latest allegation comes after yesterday’s news that Anna Larke also accused him of forcing her to recount every sexual encounter she had ever had, which he wrote down in a notepad, in what was described as a ‘campaign’ of domestic abuse.
The jurors at St Albans Crown Court – consisting of nine women and three men - have now heard that Justin Lee Collins pushed Anna Larke in front of traffic, after a drinking session with his friend and fellow TV presenter Alan Carr. Collins, 38 is accused of being drunk when the incident occurred and when she was asked if Mr Carr would be able to confirm her story, she stated that he, too, had been drunk. “Justin shoved me in the back and pushed me into the traffic,” said Larke. “He was drunk. I was lucky a man stepped in to save me.”
In addition to these latest revelations from the Justin Lee Collins court case, the comic has also been accused of insisting that his former partner, also 38, close down her Twitter, Facebook and email accounts, after he had read all of the messages that she had posted. Collins has recently been appearing in the West End musical Rock of Ages; as the details of this shocking case of alleged abuse become public, Justin Lee Collins’ life in the public eye could well face an uncertain future.
