The 35-year-old will be bringing her sense of humour and sparkle to ‘add a dose of extra fizz’ to the brand.
Speaking on the partnership, Holly said, “I’ve always been a big Diet Coke fan, right from the original ‘Break’ ads we all remember with great fondness. The brand is well known for celebrating friendship, fashion and fun, which are all very important to me. I’m excited to be involved!”
February 13th 2017 – Adele confirms marriage to Simon
Things are looking great for chart topper Adele. As well as scooping no less than five Grammy awards last night, the mum-of-one confirmed that she has tied the knot with partner of five years Simon Konecki.
In her acceptance speech for her 25 album nods the 28-year-old said:
“Grammys, I appreciate it, the Academy, I love you, my manager, my husband and my son – you’re the only reason I do it.”
Adele sent the rumour mill into overdrive last month when she was spotted wearing a band on her left hand. So it seems that there really is no smoke without fire!

Peter Andre posted this touching photo when he walked in on wife Emily nursing their baby boy. He captioned the photo ‘Just perfect #hungrylad’.
However, the photograph has sparked some debate, with some fans condemning Peter for posting the picture. ‘Rediculous .. ypu are as bad as your ex posting this WTH ? I’m surprised at ypu Peter I thought that you had more values than this . I totally agree with breast feeding but fir the world to see .. rediculous ..’ wrote @karenbruce65.

February 7th 2017 – Zoe Ball shows off her new boyfriend
She may have only recently split from ex-hubby Norman Cook but Zoe Ball is already loved up with a new man. The 46-year-old has been snapped out and about with her 40-year-old beau Billy Yates, and the pair looked smitten as they enjoyed a cosy lunch together in a North London pub.
The Antiques Roadshow cameraman and the It Takes Two presenter are said to have got together in September, and it looks like this could be the real deal for Zoe.
Giving his seal of approval to the relationship, Zoe’s father Johnny, 78, told The Sun: “We are very happy that she is finding a new lease of life. She is very happy at the moment, she really is, and that is lovely.”
February 3rd 2017 – Kylie Minogue splits from fiancé
She’s been dubbed ‘unlucky in love’ more than once, but we really believed pop songstress Kylie had found her happy ever after with fiancé Joshua Sasse. Sadly news has just come in that the Aussie starlet has split from her 29-year-old beau after just two years together.
According to The Sun the 48-year-old pulled the plug on their year-long engagement following rumours Joshua was cheating with Spanish actress Marta Milans, 34. Kylie – who was preparing to take on her partner’s surname after they wed – is reported to have kicked Sasse out of her West London home.
A source said: “She is absolutely devastated, totally heartbroken. She really believed he was The One. But she no longer trusts him.”
We really feel for Kylie and really hope she can bounce back from this heartbreak!
24th January 2017 – Cheryl fears for Liam’s safety after he narrowly misses being shot at in Hollywood nightclub
Pregnant Cheryl must have been terrified to hear that her beau Liam Payne narrowly avoided a gunman who opened fire outside a club in downtown LA. The 23-year-old One Direction star was partying in the Peppermint Club on Saturday night, when the incident occurred. Apparently a man tried to enter the venue with a fake ID, which led to a brawl with security. Leaving the club, he started firing shots in the car park. Liam remained inside the club. Stay safe, Liam!
20th January 2017 – Holly Willoughby incurs the wrath of This Morning viewers
When your boiler breaks down, who ya gonna call? Well for This Morning co-presenter Holly Willoughby, the obvious answer was the daytime show’s consumer whizz Alice Beer.
After realising it would take a week to fix her faulty appliance, she decided to cut out the middleman to see what she could do to solve her heating conundrum.
Explaining her plight she said:
“Yes, it’s been absolutely freezing. The kids have been in our bed. The nearest appointment they could give me was the following week, so we were going to be seven days without this.
“I didn’t know what to do without any heat whatsoever, so I called you because you’re like the guru. You know everything.”
Beer then revealed that she had intervened on her behalf, citing the fact that the mum-of-three had “seven million Twitter followers”.
What’s the problem with that you say? Not much as far as we can see – if you’ve got connections, why not use them? However, the exchange proved to be a red flag for This Morning viewers who accused the 35-year-old of being a tad dramatic. Cue a Twitter backlash…
19th January 2016 – Johnny Depp makes emotional speech at People’s Choice Awards
2016 was a testing year for Hollywood acting legend Johnny Depp. And it seems that the impact of his divorce from ex-wife Amber Heard and the death of his beloved mother Betty Sue continue to weigh heavily on the 53-year-old’s heart.
Accepting the Favorite Movie Icon gong at the People’s Choice Awards the dad-of-two made an impassioned acceptance speech thanking his loyal fan base.
“I came here for one reason, and one reason only,” the actor began.
“I came here for you, the people, who through whatever good times or bad have stood by me and trusted me.”
Struggling to hold back his emotion, he continued:
“Thank you. You very graciously invited me here once again tonight. I appreciate it. You have no idea how much I appreciate it.”
“I was very deeply affected by the kindness of your recognition and your well wishes to me and my family.”
We’re keeping our fingers crossed that 2017 will bring more positive changes for the actor.

10th January 2016 – Tom Hiddleston’s Golden apology
Tom Hiddleston’s speech at the Golden Globes was…interesting. While Meryl Streep divided the masses with her impassioned acceptance speech, and Ryan Gosling melted hearts (as per) with his touching tribute to his wife, Tom’s speech left the Golden Globes guests and the general public confused.
After a rambling attempt to tell the room a story, it seemed that by the end of his speech even Tom had forgotten the point of his tale. What had been intended as a tribute to UNICEF, Médecins Sans Frontières and the World Food Program left the room full of stars cold.
Needless to say, thousands watching the ceremony at home picked up on the incredibly awkward affair.
Finally, even Tom Hiddleston had to admit that his speech was far from perfect. The award winning ‘Night Manager’ star took to social media to apologise.
Tom said he ‘completely agreed’ with the criticism of his speech. Admitting to being ‘very nervous’ at the event, he wrote, “my words just came out wrong”. The actor then goes on to highlight the good work done by the organisations he originally tried to pay tribute to during his speech:
I just wanted to say… I completely agree that my speech at the Golden Globes last night was inelegantly expressed. In truth, I was very nervous, and my words just came out wrong. Sincerely, my only intention was to salute the incredible bravery and courage of the men and women who work so tirelessly for UNICEF UK, Doctors Without Borders/ Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), and World Food Programme, and the children of South Sudan, who continue to find hope and joy in the most difficult conditions. I apologise that my nerves got the better of me.
Good on you Tom! And for what it’s worth, we’d be pretty nervous standing up in front of a room full of A-listers at the Golden Globes too!
