If you are not familiar with the film, it stars David Bowie as Jareth, the Goblin King, who steals 15-year-old Sarah's baby brother away when she carelessly wishes for it to happen because he won't stop crying. Jareth says she can only have him back if she completes the Labyrinth. Apparently, Jareth does this because he is in love with Sarah, and wants to grant her wishes...
Over the past two years, no black actors or actresses have been nominated for Oscars. And over the past decade there has only been 18 black nominees, which amounts to just 9 percent of all acting nominees.
Sadly, I know from that personal experience that dementia is one of those illnesses that can be very scary for anybody, especially at the first stage of dementia when there's a state of confusion for everybody. So, I'm really glad the entertainment world is making such a fuss out of dementia because raising awareness is so important to people who have the condition, their carers and loved ones because there is still a stigma attached to it. Unfortunately, there doesn't appear to be a cure for dementia in sight so that means we've got to make sure that people living with dementia can live well in their communities.
It's a veritable melting pot of trends, music and culture. The area has produced a diverse array of talent who are widely celebrated today; from esteemed writer (Edgar Allen Poe), to top businessmen (Alan Sugar) and even man-of-the-moment Idris Elba. Local institutions like the 115 year old Hackney Empire has helped provide platforms for this multicultural talent over the years, and the Industrial and Jungle electronic music genres even originated from the area.
If you tipped your head in the right direction on Monday evening you probably heard a whoosh of applause coming all the way from the Eccles Theatre at this year's Sundance Festival, where the first of three standing ovations greeted the premiere screening of The Birth of a Nation.
Zayn is the first guy to come along in a long time, who actually seems as though he gets what it takes to be a properly decent, worldwide popstar. True, he isn't exactly a novice, having spent five years in one of the most famous pop groups in the world, but it does seem that now he's flying solo, Zayn will be able truly to thrive.
1. Google them hard Go all the way to page 62 if you have to. Any further is weird. Don't be weird. 2. Note down the good stuff If I was intervie...
I want this film to be a love letter to all those people who are worried about saying I Love You. Say it. Trust me. You will learn a lot more about yourself if you stride out and embrace the emotional surf that knocks you off your feet.
He died last week and it's more heart-breaking than anything I've felt before. I feel like my insides have been gouged out and nothings left. He formed me and saved me. I know that by now I'd be either institutionalised, heavily medicated or dead. I have to thank him and can't.
Forget the tantrums, tiaras, flowers, sunglasses, knighthood, '80s cocaine habit, Dolce & Gabanna row, ridiculous '90s Louis XIV costume and even the extremely admirable work that's carried out by the Elton John Aids Foundation. Elton Hercules John is not a "national treasure"; he's a rock star. It's time for rock snobs to give Elton John and his band the credit they deserve.
I don't want to give away any more storylines but it's all go for Mercedes; she certainly comes with a huge amount of drama in tow! I'm still filming now and will be sad to leave her when the time comes, as it has been such a great job and lovely team to be involved with.
Ant and Dec may have been the big winners on the night - after gathering their 15th gong at the National TV Awards. *Shock* But if you ask me, aside from the loveable Geordie duo, the real winners were some of the extraordinary women who lit up the red carpet on telly's most fabulous night.
I was upset. It was the headline: 'David Bowie dead at 69 after secret 18-month battle with cancer'. Because for me it was far too close to home. All I could think of was my Mum, I couldn't help it. The facts were identical.
Winning CBB for me was a fantastic experience, and if I could only give one piece of advice to any of the housemates it would be simply this, relax - don't forget to be nice and enjoy every single moment of it!

Please don't think for a minute that I have done all of this by myself. For every child receiving a book there are 10 people who work locally to sponsor the program by raising money, registering kids and to do whatever they can do to make the Imagination Library successful. There is no better example of this than the effort in Southwark. Once again, kind and gentle souls have taken a dream conjured up in Tennessee and given it new life in their community.
