Zoella Blog Help Rumours

We don't believe this for a minutes and think that it is such a shame there is always a witch-hunt to bring Zoella down. She clearly works very hard, because this is her job and her career.

Mary Berry Can't Dance
Mary Berry has turned down the chance to be in the BBC's Strictly Come Dancing, because Mez Bez says she has got two left feet. At least she can make a nice sponge cake though.

Phil and Holly Play Pie Face
Phillip Schoefield and Holly Willoughby went to Ant's house (off of Ant and Dec) after the NTA television awards the other night and played a game of pie face. We love playing Pie Face, check out the videos of us playing it and getting very, very messy. They told viewers of This Morning that instead of using spray cream like most people do, they'd played Pie Face with mint sauce and mustard.

He's calling it 'HelloFresh' and it consists of people ordering boxes of food so that they can make his recipes at home. Nice idea Jamie, but what's wrong with looking in your cookery book before you go to the supermarket?!

Major Tim Peake Goes for a Space Walk

She's invited 10,000 people, but guests are being charged £150 each to attend, or so we have heard. Bit of a money maker then Ma'am ('mam' as in jam). You'll be on Dragon's Den next.

Eating Christmas Trees
