Ed Sheeran always on the up

Well Ed Sheeran is always going from strength to strength.  He's just turned 24 and I have a feeling he celebrated in style.  So heres some facts about him, sort off.



In early 2011, after securing recording and publishing deals, Sheeran purchased a farm near Framlingham, Suffolk, and had it renovated. He has stated that he hopes to raise a family there.



He also bought a house in south London in early 2014. Sheeran lived between Hendersonville, Tennessee and Los Angeles for the duration of 2013. Sheeran is the second cousin of broadcaster Gordon Burns, who had hosted the British game show The Krypton Factor.



Sheeran was in a relationship with Scottish singer-songwriter, Nina Nesbitt (who was in his music video for "Drunk") in 2012, before breaking up. Nesbitt is the subject of Sheeran's songs, "Nina" and "Photograph", while most of Nesbitt's album, Peroxide, is about Sheeran. In January 2014, Sheeran started dating Athina Andrelos, who works for British celebrity chef, Jamie Oliver. She is the inspiration of Sheeran's song, "Thinking Out Loud". They broke up in February 2015.



As of September 2015, Sheeran is dating his former high school friend, Cherry Seaborn. In June 2015, Forbes listed his earnings at $57 million for the previous 12 months, and ranked him the 27th-highest-earning celebrity in the world. On 19 October 2015, Sheeran received an honorary degree from the University Campus Suffolk in Ipswich for his "outstanding contribution to music". Sheeran comments, "Suffolk is very much where I call home. Receiving this recognition is a real privilege."

Sam Strike - From Eastenders to Hollywood

Well everyone seems on about the fact the BBC are recasting Johhny Carter in EastEnders, which obviously means Sam Strike won't reprise his role.  Well it's a soap having different people play the same person is nothing new.



Strike had been cast as Jackson Sawyer, the teenager who became Leatherface, in the upcoming The Texas Chain Saw Massacre prequel Leatherface, Starring alongside Stephen Dorff, the film which is set to be released in late 2016 revolves around a teenage Leatherface who escapes from a mental hospital with three other inmates, kidnaps a young nurse and takes her on a road trip from hell.



Along the way, they are pursued by an equally deranged lawman out for revenge. It is written by Seth M. Sherwood and set to be directed by Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo. Filming began 18 May 2015 in Bulgaria and ended on 19 June 2015.



He also starred in Silent Witness in January 2016.  So I'm sure he's not too bothered about EastEnders.

David Witts was nervous about EastEnders kiss

'EastEnders' newcomer David Witts was so nervous about kissing co-star Hetti Bywater he ate a packet of extra strong mints first.

david-witts-joey-branning   

 

David's character Joey Branning enjoyed a snog with Lucy Beale (Hetti) after saving her from his threatening father Derek and although he really enjoys working with the 17-year-old actress, David admitted the on screen clinch left him panicked.

david witts

He explained to The Sun newspaper: ''Everyone says you must love the kissing scenes but it is hard work. It's just part and parcel of the job and you'd be a bit of a twit if you got a cheap thrill out of it.

david witts3David-Witts-briefs

''I will admit I keep Trebor Extra Strong mints on me just in case. I always have mints before a kissing scene, it's only polite, you don't want people saying bad things about you.

david witts12

''Hetti is great. She's a very talented actress. She's only 17 but she's acting well beyond her years. It's been a real pleasure, she is great to work with.''  Along with kissing Lucy, Joey also punched his father Derek (Terence Beesley) upon arrival in Albert Square and David had reservations about filming the scene.  He said: ''I was absolutely bricking it when I came to my first scene. Luckily I didn't actually hit him. But I really went for it. With scenes like that you've got to be 'in' the scene because if you're not it's going to look a bit fake.''

Alex Pettyfer admits he went overboard when training for stripper movie Magic Mike

When he was cast as a stripper in new film Magic Mike, Alex Pettyfer decided to beef up.   But it appears the young Englishman went a bit too overboard with his training with producers telling him he was too big.  In a new interview with Men's Health UK, the Stormbreaker star revealed he put on 27lbs (12kg) after hitting the gym, but was told to lose some of it to play novice stripper Adam.

Alex-Pettyfer-shirtless-in-magic-mike-1

The 22-year-old tells the new issue of Men's Health UK magazine: 'I put on a bit of weight for this film. I started off at 169lb (77kg) and went up to 196lb (88kg).   'They told me I was too big, so in the end I had to take it back down to 185lb (84kg).'  

alex-pettyfer-six-pack-magic-mike

With Magic Mike being filmed last autumn, Alex hasn't had to worry about  his beefed physique and admitted he is now taking a break after such intensive training.

He said: 'When you eat and train as a sportsman I found it very enjoyable.

'But at the same time, it was hard, particularly at the start and I still remember not wanting to be in the gym. That’s why I don’t want to train at the moment.'

Despite being only 22, Alex has already started his own production company and is hoping to become a film director.

He explained: 'I’m very ambitious. I live in reality but I have dreams I want to fulfil – I want to be a director, and I’ve already started my own production company. But I also have a measure of success that I keep to myself. It’s something very personal to me.'

Magic-Mike-Stills-alex-pettyfer

When looking for inspiration when making life decisions, Alex admits his father Richard and the late Paul Newman are his idols.

He said: 'My dad’s one of my biggest heroes. I also think Paul Newman’s an inspiration. I know a lot of people say that, but I love that he’s a great role model and a humanitarian. I admire people who don’t necessarily want to change the world, but try to make it a better environment.'

Tony Discipline aka Tyler Moon in Eastenders

Tyler is one of those cheeky chappies who you can't help but like. He’s a confident geezer who's set to be a sure fire hit with the ladies and a popular fixture in the Queen Vic but will his testosterone fuelled swagger rub Walford’s lads up the wrong way? Time will tell…

This naughty bloke loves a good barney and will take on any challenge going. But beware, Tyler has a very short fuse and cause a ruckus at the drop of a hat. He’s a newbie in the boxing ring, and is pleased as ‘punch’ to be following in his old man, Eddie’s, footsteps.

tony discipline1

Tyler works for the family business and him and his dad are as close as father and son can be but of all of the Moon clan, it’s Anthony that Tyler dotes on the most. There's simply nothing in the world that he wouldn't do for his big brother.
