People Say You Should Never Meet Your Heroes... Those People Never Met Rik Mayall

Rik was ridiculously charming, funny and generous - and clearly loved by the crew around him. He was also, I was embarrassed but delighted to learn, flirtatious. After the chat and the autograph, one of the crew took our photo together: I put my arm around Rik, he put his hand on my bottom. But it wasn't, I hasten to add, the slightest bit creepy or slimey. It was funny, and brilliant. Clearly, this man wasn't making a play for me - he was just absolutely making my day. It was, in short, pretty much the most perfect meeting-of-a-hero you could wish for.

If you'd told me I'd be captaining a team filled with a host of football legends and Hollywood stars I would have laughed. Playing in Soccer Aid sometimes does feel like a bit of a dream - I know the other guys involved also treasure this unique experience. But when I lead the Rest of the World team out on 8 June, it won't just be football on my mind; because there's a bigger reason why we come together every two years for this extraordinary football match.

The pacing is sadly where Breaking Dawn Part 2 is let down. Had they condensed the risible Part 1 into the opening 20 minutes of this film and skipped the extended sequence of finding members of the Cullen family who really serve no purpose in a narrative sense, we may have enjoyed a more complete film experience.

Michael Sheen isn't the first big 'star' to play Hamlet and nor will he be the last, but is the fashion to cast 'A-list' names in Shakespeare's greatest and most exacting role really a good thing?

'To Sleep, Perchance to Dream'... Michael Sheen's Hamlet at the Young Vic Theatre, London

This is a different Hamlet. It is fully accessible, but wholly unusual. It is set in a mental asylum/prison. The main set is a circle of institutional chairs. Featuring magic, horror, child's play and dream it has more in common with an adult's therapy session than a traditional West End performance.
