The 5 Top Entertainment Stories This Week: From Zayn Malik And Ruby Tandoh To James Corden's Pants

It’s been a busy old week in showbiz, and with the election coming up, those pesky politicians have been sticking their noses in too.

We’ve had lots of One Direction updates and there have been plenty of funny videos too, and quite frankly, it’s sometimes hard to keep up.

Here are the five stories you need to know this week…

The latest development in the continuing saga of Zayn Malik’s life as “normal 22-year-old”, saw a track appearing to be a sample of the singer’s upcoming solo material revealed online.

Of course, things weren’t that simple and hours after it was posted by producer Naughty Boy, ‘I Don’t Mind’ was removed, and a statement revealing that the song was actually a rejected 1D track was released.

James roped in his pal Becks to star in a skit for his new US talk show. The results are nothing short of amazing. See for yourself…

Quite something, isn’t it?

‘Great British Bake Off’ star Ruby became our favourite person on Twitter this week, when she came out with one of the best sets of tweets ever. A Motown classic AND taking down misogynist critics? You’ll always be a winner in our eyes, Ruby.

Remind yourself of Ruby’s tweets (and have a boogie to Diana Ross) here.

Our friends across the pond LOVE Dame Helen’s British accent, but Jimmy couldn’t help thinking it could be improved with the addition of helium. And he was right.

Helen, you’re the best. (Obviously, don’t try this at home…)

So far, the election trail has taken this year’s possible leaders to some pleasantly unexpected places, and Ed stopped off for a chat on Magic FM earlier this week, where he revealed that he reckons the ‘Gone Girl’ star would be a fab 007. He makes a pretty strong case too, read it in full here.
