From vamp to tramp! Lindsay Lohan stumbles back to her plush London hotel looking dishevelled

By Lucy Buckland

It was all going so well.

She may have had a few stumbles along the way but Lindsay Lohan stepped out of her plush London hotel looking every inch the Hollywood starlet on New Year's Eve morning - and with plans for a quiet dinner with friends, everything appeared to be uncharacteristically low-key.

UntIl, that is, a few hours later when Lindsay was seen walking into the Dorchester in a decidedly scruffy outfit more suited to gardening than entering one of the plushest hotels in London.

Where have you been? Lindsay Lohan arrives back at The Dorchester in a bizarre striped top with marks and a jacket which surely she knows is more an elderly gentleman

As she wandered into the hotel, Lohan, who seemed to be wearing an middle-aged man's jacket, was helped by a security guard who guided her past stunned onlookers.

Her striped top was uncharacteristically baggy and had an array of odd stains which surely weren't picked up in plush department store Harrods, where she had been earlier.

Perhaps the 26-year-old was simply tired as she had been shopping up a storm in the high end department store while carrying a Hermes Birkin bag, despite struggling to pay her mounting legal bills.

Tried? Lindsay looked drained, perhaps after a long day of shopping as she headed back to her hotel

From vamp to tramp: Lindsay started the trip looking vampish... she ended the day today looking slightly down and out

The 'Liz & Dick' star has been seen wearing an array of faux fur coats and on December 30 was in a wonderful mood, blowing kisses to bystanders outside the celebrity hotspot's entrance in Mayfair, smiling and hugging her coat close.

Underneath the wrap, she was wearing a white A-line mini dress.

But it was a different story on New Year's Eve evening as she kept her head down and her wild hair scraped back.

Wild haired: Lindsay may want to change if she is going out for dinner

Lindsay, whose probation was revoked earlier this month after she allegedly lied about driving her Porsche during a car crash in June - said earlier on New Year's Eve that she feels blessed to be able to spend time with her loved ones and is hoping 2013 brings good things her way amid reports she is facing a possible eight months in jail.

The 26-year-old actress wrote on her Twitter page: 'I feel very blessed to be able to spend time w/ my mom, family&very wonderful friends. Very grateful.. May only good things come this year. (sic)'

The actress - who is rumoured to have signed up to star on 'Celebrity Big Brother' for two weeks before her next court appearance on January 15 .

New Year's Eve: Lindsay would like to ring in 2013 with a quiet dinner with friends

This makes three! Lindsay sported a grey fur coat - and pretty pink handbag - as she returned to her London hotel after shopping at Harrods

Lindsay was recently said to have admitted to her friends that she had hit rock bottom and needed professional help but claimed she didn't have the money to hire a psychiatrist as she is currently in debt.

The actress was given $100,000 from her friend Charlie Sheen to help cover her enormous tax bill.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West looked like the happiest couple in the world on Monday as they were spotted together for the first time since their baby news.

The parents-to-be were spotted at Los Angeles International Airport with their arms wrapped around each other while exchanging affectionate glances.

Pregnant Kim's mother and manager Kris Jenner - not one to miss out on a media opportunity - followed closely behind.

Kim is expected to be joined by Kayne tonight as she hosts a New Year's Eve party in Las Vegas - for which she is said to be earning a staggering $300,000.


Here come the happy couple: Pregnant Kim Kardashian and her boyfriend Kanye West had big smiles as they arrived at Los Angeles Airport on Monday

The reality star - who is around three months pregnant and due at the end of June - won't take a break as the curvy brunette will ring in the new year at 1 Oak on the Vegas strip, a gig that has been heavily promoted by the Mirage Hotel.

Tickets are $125 for women and $150 for men, while it's $3000 to hire a table. And that is without the cost of any alcohol.

Earlier on Monday Kim opened up for the first time about being pregnant - but admitted the happy news is tinged with sadness.

The 32-year-old TV personality said she and boyfriend Kanye West feel 'blessed' but wished that her late father Robert and his late mother Donda were still around to share in their joy.

Parents-to-be: Kim wore a structured black jacket and trousers teamed with a low-cut top and shades while Kanye donned a gold chain, jeans and long grey coat

Taking to her blog on Monday, Kim wrote a message titled 'New Year, New Beginnings'.

She wrote: It’s true!! Kanye and I are expecting a baby. We feel so blessed and lucky and wish that in addition to both of our families, his mom and my dad could be here to celebrate this special time with us.

'Looking forward to great new beginnings in 2013 and to starting a family. Happy New Year!!! Xo

Kim's father, powerhouse attorney Robert Kardashian, died in 2003, aged 59, just weeks before Kim's 23rd birthday, after losing his battle to esophageal cancer.

Hardly in the shade: The TV personality has sent the showbiz world into a spin with her big news

In 2007 Kanye's mother Donda died aged 58 due to complication from cosmetic surgery.

Kim and Kanye, 35, have admitted in the past that their mutual loss of a parent has been something they have formed a close bond over as their friendship blossomed into romance.

The couple's baby news was first revealed by Kanye onstage during his concert in Atlantic City on Sunday night as Kim watched from the audience.

The rapper said 'stop the music', then announced 'make noise for my baby mama right here,' with a wide smile. Kanye's announcement prompted a flurry of excited tweets from the audience.

Expecting: Kim and Kanye, pictured in October, have confirmed they are having a baby

Kim's message to fans: The reality TV star posted this note on Monday

Kim, who was sat in the audience during the show, is said to have not known that her man would reveal their pregnancy and was in shock like many of the rappers fans.

Her spokesman confirmed shortly afterwards that the pregnancy buzz was indeed true.

The two have been dating for eight months. They have previously denied pregnancy rumours.

Kim is thought to be around the 12-week mark.

Hiding a bump: The couple at the LA Clippers game on Christmas Day

Kim and Kanye were last seen together on Christmas Day when they attended a basketball game to watch Kim's brother-in-law Lamar Odom play with his new team The Clippers.

Kanye was seen carefully attending to his girlfriend and holding her hand as they sat side by side in the front row. They left at half time, with Kim later tweeting that she felt 'unwell'.

'In bed with the flu all day. Praying this goes away fast!' the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star wrote.

Kim won't be letting her pregnancy get in the way of her work - she is hosting a party in Las Vegas for New Year's Eve at the 1 Oak nightclub.

Shout out to his 'baby mama': Kanye made the announcement at this concert

Full of festive cheer: Kanye could not stop grinning after he made his spectacular announcement

Kim will earn a six-figure sum for the appearance with tickets costing $125 for entry into the VIP area and $3,000 for a table, according to TMZ.

Of course, Kim is still married to her estranged second husband Kris Humphries. The pair's divorce has been prolonged as the basketball star has insisted on a court case, claiming the marriage should be annulled as it was 'fraud'.

After the news of Kim's pregnancy broke late on Sunday her excited family took to Twitter.

Overjoyed: Kim hugs her mum Kris Jenner as Kanye reveals she's pregnant during his concert on Sunday night

Sister Kourtney wrote: 'Been wanting to shout from the rooftops with joy and now I can! Another angel to welcome to our family. Overwhelmed with excitement!'

And little sister Kendall added: 'Whos excited about the KIMYE babbyyy?! :D weeee'.

Khloe wrote: 'KIMYE!!!!! Keeping secrets is hard with so many family members! 'Especially when you are so freaking excited!!!!! LOVE is everything!!!!

Khloe‘s husband Lamar tweeted: 'I’m excited for Kanye and my sister! There’s nothing like bringing life into this world!

Exciting! Kim's large family were quick to offer their congratulations to the happy couple

'Let’s keep Gods blessings coming!'

And Grandma-to-be Kris Jenner added: 'I'm a happy girl !!!!!!!!! Wowza!'

Kanye spent the Christmas period with Kim's family, who have welcomed him with open arms.

Kim has also become close to Kanye's family after being he took her to visit them in Oklahoma City while visiting his mother Donda West's grave last month.

Since Kim and Kanye began dating in April they have rarely been apart.
Despite the shortness of their relationship, the two have been friends for years.

It has even been speculated that the rapper had been in love with Kim back in 2009, when he appeared to refer to her in his track Knock You Down.

Parents to be: The couple have been the picture of happiness since they started dating earlier this year

Always together: Kim and Kanye walk around Los Angeles on Christmas Eve

At the time the song was penned, Kim was in a relationship with NFL star Reggie Bush, whom she went on to date on and off for three years.

The song includes the lines: 'You was always the cheerleader of my dreams... To seem to only date the head of football teams... And I was the class clown that always kept you laughing... We were never meant to be, baby we just happened.'

He then goes on to rap: 'You should leave your boyfriend now.'

And in December 2010, Kanye was on hand when Kim filmed her music video Jam (Turn It Up).

In scenes later broadcast on her reality show Kris Jenner was seen jokingly criticising Kanye for eyeing up Kim, telling him: ‘Don’t be looking at her a**’.

Not one to miss a beat, quick-witted Kanye replied: ‘I’ve never seen it actually.’

A svelte and slimline Josie Gibson shows off the full extent of her four stone weight loss in a skimpy crop top and hotpants

By Louise Saunders

She's lost a staggering four stone in just over six months.

And Josie Gibson has shown off the full extent of her incredible weight loss in a sexy new shoot.

Posing up a storm in a miniscule black cut-out crop top and matching hotpants, the 27-year-old flaunted her tiny waist and toned limbs in all their glory.

Svelte and sexy: Josie Gibson showed off her incredible weight-loss in a sassy shoot for Fabulous magazine

With her long blonde locks scraped back into a high ponytail, the former Big Brother winner's weight-loss was clear to see thanks to her features standing out from her newly-defined cheekbones.

The bubbly Bristolian completed her svelte and sleek look with a gold statement necklace as she posed in a sassy shoot for Fabulous magazine.

After shedding the pounds earlier this year, Josie explained she will never go back to her old ways and has vowed to kick her former habit of over-indulgence once and for all.

A shadow of her former self: The 27-year-old reality star has lost an incredible four stone in just six months

She recently said: 'It's taken me over six months to lose nearly 4st and I couldn't be prouder of myself.

'In fact, from now on you'll probably be confusing me with Miranda Kerr. Kind of. I'll honestly never be fat again and looking to the future doesn't fill me with fear like it used to.'

And the star admitted losing such a vast amount of weight has made her change her entire outlook on life.

Josie added to Now magazine: 'I spent months at the start of my health kick craving all things sweet and my old diet. But now, hand on heart, I'll choose a bit of sushi over a lamb doner any day.'

Despite her new attitude to life, the reality star seemed excited at the prospect of a tasty Christmas lunch earlier this week.

Writing on her Twitter page on Christmas morning, she said: 'Merry Christmas!! The Meat is on!! Just had my first meal of the day!!! Let's frikkin eat like its 1999!!!! Ye mon!'

Josie is well-known for her yo-yo diet tendencies, having lost the weight and subsequently piled it all back on again numerous times over the past few years.

She previously said: 'Before I lost weight I was nearly size 20 and my only exercise was partying. I've tried all the diets - I did the Cambridge Diet and lasted from the meeting until I got home!

'They gave me all the bits and pieces but I ate a week's worth of food on the spot, then stopped for a kebab.'


Up fur a laugh? From delirious dogs to maniac monkeys, we reveal the funniest animal photos of 2012

By Daniel Miller

They're the funniest animal photos of 2012, the maniac moggies and marvelous mutts who have brightened up our year with their utterly barmy exploits

And it's not just household pets which have brought a smile to out faces - the dogs and cats are joined by a host of bonkers animals including horses, monkeys and even a goat.

Image sharing website has amassed a huge selection of animal pictures throughout the course of the year and here we've picked out some of the very best for you to enjoy.

Long arm of the paw: A playful pooch pops out of its owner's top in what looks like a science experiment gone wrong

Seductive eyes: A touch of mascara really brought out the best in this cheerful chap with a pair of hilarious drawn-on brows

Fluffy friend: This long-haired kitten might appear a bit stuck-up but its little owner loves it all the same

Horsing about: A young girl enjoys a laugh with her four-legged friend

There's the dog that looks just dandy with a set of painted on eyebrows, a playful pup who can't wait to show off its pole-dancing skills and another, which when viewed from a certain angle looks like quite something else entirely.

We've got some maniac monkeys too who don't appear particularly happy after hitching a lift on top of tourist during a water ride.

And hats off to the horses who've had a sterling year whether trying on the latest blue jeans to just enjoying a good lark with their owners.

And if there is anyone out there seriously considering getting a goat for a household pet we've got just the picture to put you off.

So put your own two paws together for all our four legged-friends and remember to keep those pictures coming in during 2013.

Camera shy: This rather plump cat does not appear particularly pleased about having its picture taken

A cheeky squirrel enjoys a slice of peperoni pizza while a playful pup shows off its pole dancing skills

Best of mates: This lazy hound dog was in a need of a little snooze and he found the perfect spot to snuggle up on his buddy's back

This man appears quite calm about having a pair of manic monkeys on his shoulder, the monkeys however are not so relaxed

Hair of the dog: A back-combed bouffant was the must-have style for this pampered pooch

It takes all sorts: As this rather unusual picture proves. We're not quite sure what's going on with the doll, or the cringe-worthy Christmas jumpers for that matter

A little squiffy: It must have been a heavy night for this lightweight Chihuahua but at least its got a friend to nurse it through the morning

Dozing off: This pooch on the left looks like its struggling to stay awake while the innocent little dog on the right appears to be quite something else entirely when viewed from a certain angle

Goats are not your normal household pets and, judging by the behaviour of this example, for good reason

This horse looks delighted at finally having found the perfect pair of blue jeans

Looking swell: Coleen Rooney unveils the beach bump in Barbados that'll be a baby brother for Kai

By Kimberley Dadds

Coleen Rooney showed off her pregnancy bump for the first time yesterday as she soaked up the winter sun in the Caribbean.

Wearing a Hermes gold bracelet, bikini and floral cover-up, the 26-year-old played with son Kai, three, in the sand on an exclusive resort in Barbados.

And it is clear her little boy did not inherit his straight posture from his father.

Pregnant and proud: Coleen Rooney shows off her growing baby bump as she parades on the beach in Barbados with son Kai

Looking swell: The WAG happily flaunted her burgeoning belly in a black string bikini as she cooled off in the water

Wayne Rooney was famously photographed hunched over as he exited the sea with his parents in a strikingly similar pose. Then aged 17, it was their first family holiday to Mexico, after he emerged as a teenage football sensation.

Coleen announced earlier this month that she was expecting her second child with husband Wayne, 27.

The Manchester United striker was unable to join his family on the holiday as he is having treatment for a knee injury.

Coleen revealed on Twitter that she was expecting another son.

She tweeted: 'Absolutely loved seeing our baby on the scan yesterday!!! It's a ..... BOY!!'

Flashback: Husband and Wayne with his parents in 2003

Play time: The 26-year-old joined son Kai as they took to the water for a playful afternoon

Winter sun: After enjoying Christmas at home the Rooney clan have headed to the Caribbean for some winter sunshine

Exciting times: Earlier this month Coleen and husband Wayne revealed they are expecting a son in May next year

Water babes: Kai giggled as he wore a shark fin on his back and paddled in the water

And obviously in a playful mood she joined Kai, who was dressed with a shark fin on his back as he took to the water.

Both mother and son spent some time cooling off as they took a dip in their summer get-ups.

Kai was even seen giggling with delight as Coleen put him in an inflatable dragon ring and span him around as he floated.

Surrounded by friends and family Wayne Rooney's wife was snap happy as she carried her camera and took shots of their idyllic relaxing day.

Family time: The WAG dragged her three-year-old son's inflatable dragon into the water ready for4 yet more fun

Bonding: Kai was delighted as he floated and span around in the rubber ring

Perhaps feeling slightly burnt, the clothes designer later decided to put on a flowered kaftan top to cover up some of her skin, while she put sunglasses on to protect her eyes.

Although she still happily let her bump be on display.

Their lavish trip comes after they spent Christmas Day relaxing at home during some Wizard of Oz themed festivities.

It's not really a traditional Christmas costume, but Coleen Rooney dressed up as Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz for the special day.

Snap happy: Rooney ensured she kept the memories from their trip by taking pictures on the beach

Lapping it up: The Rooneys spent Christmas at home but have since jetted out to the Caribbean this week

Holiday spirit: Both mother and son were all smiles as they left the dreary British weather behind them to see 2013 in

Centre of attention: Coleen played the doting mother as she showed off her bikini figure

The 26-year-old WAG, who is expecting her second child with husband Wayne, posed up with her three-year-old son Kai, who was dressed up as the Scarecrow, in the adorable shot.

Coleen wore a blue and white gingham dress, with a matching bow in her hair, and even painted freckles onto her face to make her character even more realistic.

Meanwhile, Kai wore a blue top and brown trousers, with a hat and collar trimmed with straw, topped off with a red painted nose.

Looking after her bump: Coleen ensured she smothered on the sun protection as she enjoyed the rays

Castles in the sand: After enjoying their dip the pair then took to the shore to make the most of the beach

A little burnt? The clothes designer later covered up slightly in a flowered kaftan top

Next! The Rooney family were full of activities as they whiled away the time on the Barbados beach

Watch out, there's a shark! Little Kai strapped on a shark fin before running into the water

And Coleen took the opportunity to explain that the Kai is a huge fan of the Wizard of Oz - and that's why the Rooneys had dressed up.

She wrote on Twitter: 'Happy Christmas everyone! Have a fab day. Kai is over the moon, Santa's been! ( mummy even got a Dorothy costume!) loves the wizard of oz!'

This Christmas marks an extra-special occasion for the Rooneys, as Coleen revealed on Twitter earlier this week that she and Wayne have found out they are expecting another boy to add to their brood.

Lapping it up: Coleen couldn't take the grin off her face as she enjoyed her time in one of her favourite holiday destinations
