He is testing new in-ear monitors, which help ease his tinnitus - but frontman Roger Daltrey fears their performance in London last month could be their last, if Townshend's health problems persist. Daltrey tells Uncut magazine, "If carrying on is going to mean Pete going deaf, let's stop now. Entering old age is a silent world - nothing is worth that."

Sandra Bullock's estranged husband Jesse James has been left with a "huge hole in his heart" after his wife filed for divorce - but insists it would be "selfish not to let her go". The Oscar-winning actress walked out on James last month after tattooed model Michelle McGee went public with claims of an 11-month affair with the TV mechanic.

Bullock has now confirmed the marriage is definitely over, telling People magazine she has filed legal papers to end the union.

Siobhan was in the bottom three with Michael Lynche and Casey James. But the former was sent to the safe zone first, leaving the battle between Casey and Siobhan.
