The Osbournes are coming for Christmas, Elvis's death threat and Lily demands a puppy!
A recent poll by games makers Tomy has revealed that the family Brits would most like to have around for Christmas is MTV's very own The Osbournes!
The dysfunctional family, headed by former Prince of Darkness Ozzy came out as the angels on the top of the Christmas tree, with Jamie Oliver, Jonathon Ross and The Royles hanging on as popular baubles. Tory Leader David Cameron came last, disastrously beaten by current PM Tony Blair.
A spokesperson for Tomy said: "British families just want to have fun! And the Osbournes would certainly not disappoint."
That's so true, and not only would you get to see the mumbling ex-rocker singing a Christmas carol, you'd also get to hear his X-Factor wife's critical judgement on the performanceThinking about it, they're not so unusual really!
Another performance that's been harshly judged is that of the world's only bald, Welsh-speaking Elvis impersonator. The poor bloke in question has been receiving death threats from hardcore fans of the King.
Geraint Benney, from Aberdare in South Wales told The Daily Star how one fan threatened to shoot him. "Some people think it's disrespectful," he said.
There was a similar hub-bub following the release of the third Lord of the Rings film, though, when a number of Graceland die-hards thought they'd bought tickets to a movie about his second coming
Finally, today, is the news that, having been a hard living drug dealer in Ibiza when she was just 15, Lily Allen's toned down her lifestyle somewhat.
The cheeky cockney lass told The Mirror she's thinking of getting a dog to tour with her - but not just one dog mind, the singer wants "a puppy for the night" in every town she plays.
Well, that may be healthier than a life of hard drugs Ms Allen, but really ... a puppy? In every town?
You should remember what they say in Korea, Lil, a puppy is not just for Christmas ... with a little luck there'll be some left over for Boxing day too.
