Rapper Snoop Dogg isn't wasting any time returning to the British live scene after a three year visa ban - he has signed on to appear at the country's top festival, Glastonbury.

Snoop challenged the decision in court and it was lifted in 2008, only for government representatives to take the case to the Court of Appeal, where it was decided the judge who reversed the ruling may have "misinterpreted the test of exclusion". But the hip-hop star refused to back down and his case was heard at a U.K. Asylum and Immigration Tribunal in February, where his lawyers fought for another reversal, citing the rapper's charity and community work as proof of his decency.

April 15, 2010 03:26:58 GMT


"The Man From U.N.C.L.E." is the latest retro TV series to be given a modern movie makeover - film bosses are set to revive the cult spy show for a big screen outing. The show, starring Robert Vaughn and David McCallum as secret agents, enjoyed a successful run between 1964 and 1968.

The series was so popular it spawned a series of spin-off movies, which saw several episodes extended and shown in movie theaters as full-length features. Vaughn and McCallum returned to the roles in 1983 for a TV movie, titled "The Return of the Man From U.N.C.L.E."

Gillian Anderson Afraid Marriage Will Ruin Her 'Fantastic' Love Relationship

April 15, 2010 03:24:50 GMT


"The X-Files" star Gillian Anderson is reluctant to marry for a third time - because she doesn't want to ruin her "fantastic" relationship. The actress divorced Clyde Klotz, the father of her 15-year-old daughter Piper, in 1997, and her three-year union with Julian Ozanne ended in 2007.

Anderson started dating current partner Mark Griffiths in 2006 after separating from Ozanne, and the pair has two sons together - three-year-old Oscar and Felix, 18 months. The 41 year old isn't in any rush to walk down the aisle again, because she doesn't want to destabilize her relationship Griffiths - although she admits they probably will make their union official "at some point" in the future.

The other one is Katie Stevens, the 18-year-old from Middlebury, Connecticut. Simon Cowell said last night that her rendition of Elvis Presley's "Baby What do you Want Me to Do?" was "loud" and "annoying".
