      The Real Full Monty on Strictly

      Laila — who at 76 is the oldest person to ever appear in the Full Monty show — revealed: “I sprained my ankle the morning before we filmed it. I went over on it during the final rehearsal, so I couldn’t do the dancing.

      “I couldn’t really stand on it, so ­Ashley said I couldn’t take part. I said ‘But that’s what I’ve come to do. I’ll find some way to get on that stage’. So they came up with the idea of a wheelchair and decorated it with ­sparkly stuff. So I went on stage, I just couldn’t dance.

      “When it came to the strip I sat there in my outfit with my feathers in the wheelchair and took my top off!”

      EastEnders actor quits fame to become a solicitor

      Christopher Parker has quit fame to work as a solicitor – 16 years after starring as Spencer Moon on BBC hit soap EastEnders.

      According to popbitch, the former actor is now a Senior Consultant at Ignition Law.

      Adorable Spencer Moon stole hearts when he first arrived on the Square alongside brother Alfie – played by Shane Richie.

      During his three years on the soap, the EastEnders cast member had a one night stand with Vicki Fowler before being blackmailed by Stacey Slater.

      Spencer departed the soap in 2005 when Alfie sent him to live with his cousin in Australia.

      For two years, Christopher took his TV pursuits to the US, where he worked for TMZ and hosted Dead Famous Live alongside Gail Porter in Los Angeles.

      ANOTHER blunder in Ben Tucker murder investigation

      Emmerdale viewers all have the same complaint after spotting ANOTHER blunder in Ben Tucker’s murder investigation.

      The character was brutally killed off last month after being battered with a canoe paddle by deranged Meena Jutla.

      However, Liv Flaherty has been wrongly arrested and charged his murder, and in Thursday’s double bill, the police revealed they had seen the incriminating video of her arguing with Ben in the hours before his death.

      The detectives also told Liv that her DNA had been found under the victim’s fingernails, before referencing the scratch on her neck.

      But the moment left some viewers scratching their heads, considering how many other victims serial killer Meena has under her belt already.

      Taking to Twitter, one wrote: “If this is the one time the Police do actually run a DNA test then #Emmerdale really is beyond f***ed.

      “Leanna dies after desperately tryna save herself grabbing Meena’s hair – NO DNA test. Andrea, also murdered. Still no DNA test Ben dies, immediately the hunt is on for DNA.”

      EastEnders fans shocked

      Dean Gaffney  spoke on Good Morning Britain today and said he had been watching Adam – who plays Ian Beale on EastEnders – taking part in the horrendous Bushtucker Trials along with Coronation Street's Simon Gregson and Emmerdale's Danny Miller.

      But when asked by presenters Kate Garraway and Ben Shephard who he wanted to win, he surprised them by saying: "Adam is obviously a lovely guy, but it’s really hard for me.

      "I’ve got an affiliation with all three of the soap actors in there. Danny Miller is one of my best friends, Adam obviously I’ve worked with on and off for 30 years.

      "And Simon Gregson I know through one of my good friends Simon Thomas and he’s really lovely.

      "So actually it’s really hard, who I want to win this year."

      GMB host Ben refused to let him sit on the fence, saying: "So where are you going to go? Come on who’s getting your vote?"

      And Dean begrudgingly replied: "As much, as much, as as much as I love Adam, and I’ve worked with Adam, Danny Miller is one of my best friends, so I’m going to have to say Danny."

      Rose Ayling-Ellis turns down big money deal (Continued…)

      A source said: “Rose has already done so much to raise awareness of the plight deaf people face on a daily basis. She is a total inspiration.

      “High street franchises like Specsavers sell hearing aids and several firms have been in touch to see if she wanted any freebies, or wanted to get on board for campaigns.

      “Although it means turning down vast sums of money, Rose doesn’t feel right accepting. She gets her hearing aids from the NHS and doesn’t want to mislead her fans.

      “She is a passionate champion of our health service.

      “Her pals have been joking that Rose should have gone to Specsavers but she’s adamant not profiting from her condition is the right thing to do.”

      Janine Butcher takes horrific action, but against who?

      The EastEnders star is set to take horrific action against Jay Brown after he threatened to go to the police about her stolen car scam.

      The shady businesswoman – who arrived back on Albert Square earlier this year – will try and set him up by planting stolen goods with his belongings.

      Last week, Janine's car theft scamming secret came to its ugly head on the BBC One soap as Jay – played by Jamie Borthwick – discovered her secret.

      He confronted Janine – played by Charlie Brooks – and threatened to go to the police, until she made it clear his name was also on the forged documents.

      The salesman therefore had no choice but to get himself further wrapped up in the illegal dealings – but his boss isn't keen to let go of the betrayal.

      Instead, in upcoming scenes, Janine will set Jay up by placing stolen goods in his bag for the police to find as they search the car lot.
