And now we pause for a commercial break

I can’t imagine ‘proper fashion designer’ Victoria Beckham doing an ad for crisps these days – but back in 2002 gave the the (then) brand-new Walkers Sensations her royal seal of approval.

And Mrs Becks shows good taste by going for the Thai Sweet Chilli – I could easily live on nothing else.  (Go to 10 secs)

It wasn’t her first time promoting Walkers – check out all the Spice Girls doing an ad after the jump!

Sex Abuse Claims Against X-Men Director

48 year-old X-Men director Bryan Singer has been accused of sexually abusing a 15-year-old boy.

The alleged incidents date back to the 90′s when Michael F Egan III (believed to be pictured below) was aspiring model and actor.  The lawsuit claims Egan was lured into a sex ring with promises of auditions for acting, modeling and commercial jobs and he met Bryan Singer at one of these “notorious parties”.  It’s then claimed he flew to Hawaii to have sex with the director a few times between the ages of 15 and 17 – and that he was threatened into doing so by convicted sex-officer Marc Collins-Rector.

Michael claims that Singer promised him acting roles on X-Men movies and commercials if he complied.

Brian Singer lawyer says the claims are “completely without merit”.

Mrs Doubtfire 2!

Robin Williams and director Chris Columbus are apparently on board for a ‘Mrs Doubtfire’ sequel!

The 1993 comedy saw a man disguise himself as a Scottish nanny just to get access to his own children (which is a quite a sad relocation on the family court system when you think about it).  It earned a whopping $441 million at the box office – but surely they’ll have to find a different reason for Robin to slip into a dress as the kids are now in their 30s.
