Justin Bieber helps a family with a tragic past in need of a new house on Extreme Makeover Home Edition


Helping hand: Justin Bieber stars in an episode of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, pictured here with Katrina who lost her sister in a car accident last year

He is one of the youngest millionaire musicians in the world.

But Justin Bieber already knows how to put his superstar status to good use.

The 16-year-old pop star made an appearance on this week's episode of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition where he lent assistance to the crew in helping out The Brown Family in Texas who were in need of a new home.

Not only did the family have a house that is falling apart, they had a tragic story to share.

A year ago they lost their 17-year-old daughter Alexandra after she died in a car accident which was proven to have been caused by her texting while driving.

The family set up the Remember Alex Brown Foundation which highlights the dangers of texting and driving to school children across the country.

They dedicated the past year of their lives to the cause, driving the truck wreck from Alexandra's accident to schools nationwide, and now need help to rebuild their crumbling home.

Justin surprised the three family members, Jeanne, Johnny and 12-year-old Katrina, along with some of her friends, at the sound check for his concert nearby.

The family were invited to watch the rehearsal performance where Justin sang and danced before announcing to the Browns that one dollar from each ticket sold was being donated to their foundation.

He also signed their Don't Drive And Text Pledge and took photo's with Katrina.

Fan favourite: Justin was, as usual, surrounded by screaming female fans

The boys are back in town: One Direction boys escorted home by police after being mobbed by fans at Heathrow


Harry Smiles: The boys seemed to enjoy the attention they received as they arrived at Heathrow and Harry Styles smiled for the cameras

This time last year the boys from One Direction were dreaming of stardom, filling in their X Factor application forms and probably lacking in attention from the ladies.

But now after being out of the country for a week their loyal fans made sure the boys knew just how much they had been missed, and the crowds were so big the boys were escorted home by police.

And as Harry, Zayn, Louis, Liam and Niall arrived at Heathrow arrived back in the U.K. they were met by hundreds of screaming fans who had made their way to the airport to give the boys a warm reception as they arrived home.

Can you believe it? Louis and Liam seemed to enjoy the attention from the eager fans

Female members of airport staff were quick to take the hands of the boys and eagerly escorted them to the police van.

The boys were casually dressed in hoodies and a mixture of jumpers and jeans for the flight home.

But although they had just jetted in from a long-haul flight their admirers thought they were looking as hunky as ever and eagerly scrambled for a picture.

Police escort: Officers escorted the boys to a police fan and they were driven away leaving hundreds of screaming girls behind

Frantic fanatics: Hundreds of screaming fans had to by held back by the airport staff as One Direction arrived back in in the U.K. from L.A.

The boys seemed overwhelmed by the presence of fans and posting on the Official Twitter page 18-year-old said: ‘What a way to be greeted back to the UK how we've missed you :) love you all - Louis x

The crowd was so strong in number that police were present and the boys were pushed into a van and driven away leaving hysterical girls in their wake.

The X Factor stars had been living it up in L.A. for the past week lapping up the good weather and working on their debut album.

The boys weren’t the only famous faces at the airport in Britain but were definitely the most popular.

Veteran boybander Ronan Keating was also arriving at Heathrow on the same flight as the boys.

He tweeted: ‘Just landed at heathrow and when I walked out there were hundreds of screaming Fans Sadly not for me HaHa. One direction were on flight. X’

Waiting for the boys: Screaming girl fans couldn't wait for the boys to arrive and their was so many police had to escort the boys from the airport

Last photo: As the boys piled into the police van fans surged forward to get the last shot of the boyband

But while Ronan was not met with the same reception he was enjoying the perks of being in the business a little longer and revealed that while he was on the same flight as One Direction he was seated in first.

He said: ‘At least label not spoiling @onedirection yet. As they were not in first. Keep there feet on the Ground. Ha ha. As for me. ?’

Police help: As the van drove away officers flanked the police van allowing the boys to get home

Mirror, mirror... Demi and lookalike teenage daughter Tallulah show off identical trim figures


You're my role model: Demi Moore's teenage daughter has clearly taken a leaf out of her mother's style book as they attended a fashion show in Brazil

At 16, Tallulah Belle is fresh-faced, glossy-haired and elegantly slender. And thanks to £220,000 of cosmetic surgery, so is her mother Demi Moore.

Sitting side by side in the front row of a fashion show, it is hard to spot the difference between the teenager and the 48-year-old actress.

The pair looked more like sisters than mother and daughter as they both showed plenty of spray-tanned leg in their neutral toned outfits.

Lookalikes: The pair both showed plenty of leg in their fashionable attire

Tallulah, looked as sophisticated as her ultra glamorous mother, who like most of Hollywood's A-list has turned staying youthful into a competitive sport.

And the glamorous pair somewhat overshadowed Demi's husband Ashton Kutcher who strutted his stuff at the fashion show.

The Hollywood actress, 48, herself looked runway-ready, as she arrived with Ashton for the Colcci show at the Sao Paulo Fashion Week in Brazil.

Bravo! The pair showed their support for Demi's handsome young husband who did a turn on the catwalk

Walking hand-in-hand with the 32-year-old actor, she dazzled in the form-fitting frock paired with metallic heels and clutch.

Demi's hair was also at it's natural best, long, sleek and free flowing.
Ashton was starring in the fashion show, previewing the label's 2011-2012 Fall collection.

Runway ready: Ashton and Demi looked dazzling as they arrived on the red-carpet for the Colcci show in Brazil

Unable to take his eyes off his sexy wife, he whispered sweet nothings into her ear as she beamed to the camera.

Later, Ashton took his turn on the catwalk.
The 6'3'' actor and male model smouldered as he strutted confidently.

Hot stuff: Ashton couldn't help but whisper sweet nothings in his wife's ear as they walked the red-carpet

And he struggled to keep his trademark cheeky grin under wraps as he reached the end of the runway.

Ashton modelled jeans, a V-neck T-shirt and a leather jacket for the fashion label.
At the end of the show he emerged alongside the designer who hugged him to thank him for his hard work.

The A-list couple jetted into the South American country this week after spending some time in the snowfields at this year's Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.

They were also joined by Demi's youngest daughter, 16-year-old Tallulah Belle who did not attend the fashion show.

Earlier this weekend the couple attended a party hosted by Brazilian football star Ronaldo to kick of Sao Paulo Fashion Week.

The dinner party, held at Dom restaurant, was attended by a host of local celebrities as well as the Hollywood superstar couple.

Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen also model for Colcci during the shows, which runs through until Wednesday.

Corrie star Helen Flanagan's hotel room terror at 'man under her bed' after National Television Awards

By Daily Mail Reporter

Terror: Corrie star Helen Flanagan fled her hotel room thinking there was man under her bed hours after the National Television Awards last week

Film and television stars have long been victims of obsessed fans that take their infatuation too far.

And Corrie star Helen Flanagan feared she had become the latest soap star stalked by a crazed admirer last week when she fled her hotel room in tears, screaming 'There's a man under my bed!'

The 20-year-old appeared in the lobby of the Radisson Edwardian hotel in Canary Wharf, London barefoot in her bed clothes and in a terrified state, witnesses report.

Helen was staying at the hotel with her Coronation street co-stars after the National Television Awards when the incident happened at about 12.30pm on Thursday afternoon.

The actress, who plays Rosie Webster on the soap, came out of the lift at the ground-floor lobby and stunned onlookers by screaming that there was a man under her bed in her fifth-floor hotel room.

'Helen was absolutely hysterical,' an onlooker told The People.

'All of a sudden the lift doors opened and out stepped Helen. She was on her own but all of us looked up when she mentioned twice that there was this man under her bed.

Hotel shock: The actress was staying at the Radisson Edwardian hotel in Canary Wharf with co-stars after attending the awards at the O2 Arena

'She was holding her hands to her face clutching a tissue. It was like Helen had just seen a ghost.

'Her hair was a mess and she was wearing her bed scruffs a striped rugby top, loose-fitting trousers and nothing on her feet.'

Reception staff rushed to the actress' aid, the witness says, and ushered her into a back office.

But when security staff went to search the room, they found no one in there.

A spokeswoman for Coronation Street confirmed the incident: 'Helen was checking under her bed and for a split second she thought she had seen someone.

Obsessed fans: The 20-year-old, as Rosie Webster in the soap, has spoken out in the past over her fears for her safety

'She is very upset and doesn't want to discuss it.'

Miss Flanagan's co-star Katherine Kelly, 30, went into the manager's office to comfort her co-star.

The cast were staying at the East London hotel after attending the awards ceremony at the nearby O2 Arena.

The Corrie stars drowned their sorrows at a post-awards party at the hotel after losing out on the Best Serial Drama to EastEnders.

Helen has spoken in the past about her security fears as a downside to fame.

'It can be quite dangerous sometimes,' she has said. 'Its easier to go out when there's security and you're all together.'


Has Cheryl blown it? She's not likely to get the U.S. X Factor gig, her new tattoo's silly... and now she's turned to her cheating ex

By Alison Boshoff

Not herself? At the National Television Awards Cheryl did not seem like herself - was she bracing herself for some bad news?

People who saw her at the National Television Awards last week will tell you that there is something different about Cheryl Cole.

Not the immense and undeniably vulgar tattoo which sprawls across her lower back — that’s actually been around for months — but the slight air of embarrassment that hangs about her like a fug of that hairspray she’s paid to promote.

This is something of a first for Cheryl, whose rise to the status of nation’s sweetheart has, thus far, appeared unstoppable.

The Mail understands her hopes of a dream job on The X Factor USA are evaporating — an excruciating public rejection.

At the same time, her unlikely romance with dancer Derek Hough seems to have faltered. And her status as a style icon is under threat, with debate over the wisdom of her £900 tattoo raging on the internet.

Indeed, Cheryl may have thought 2010 was bad, but 2011 is already shaping up as yet another annus horribilis.

In happier times: Cheryl on X Factor with Simon Cowell - but the Mail understands she will not get the USA gig

Most surprising of all is the suggestion her relationship with her ex-husband Ashley is being rekindled. Yesterday it was reported that she met him at their former marital home in Surrey last week. Could a reconciliation really be on the cards?

Well, her romance with Derek Hough appears to be in one of its ‘off’ phases. Sources say she has ‘cold feet’ and doesn’t want to move in with him in Los Angeles. Instead, she plans to rent a place of her own. Her reasoning seems to be that although at times she feels that she loves him dearly, deep down she isn’t ready to make the commitment.

Some of her associates feel that she has yet to move on fully from Ashley. Although they are divorced, they remain in touch. ‘There is a part of me that will always love him and love what we had,’ she told an interviewer.

For his part, Ashley Cole has for months now been texting and calling her, and ­continues to hope that they can still be friends — and perhaps even more than that.

Surely it would be professional suicide for Cheryl to get back with him, given that he humiliated her with a series of alleged ­infidelities? Yet she remains — rather ­soppily, it must be said — unable to cut the cord from the man she regards as the love of her life.

Meanwhile, executives at Fox, who will be making The X Factor USA, appear to have fallen out of love with her.

Chemistry: But the signs are that Cheryl's relationship with Derek Hough has cooled

Cheryl never confirmed stories last year she’d signed a deal to join Simon Cowell as a judge on the American show. But at the time it was widely reported she was offered £3 million to join the line-up in what one commentator described as a ‘golden ticket to world superstardom’.

Certainly the job was mentioned to her by Cowell and executives from Fox. That much both sides will confirm off the record. Fox came to see her in action on the judging panel in the UK. They loved the way she and Cowell bantered and flirted and the expectation was that a ­contract would follow soon after.

Weeks turned into months, though, and nothing was made official. Yet Cheryl continued to make plans to relocate to America, to try to launch her music career there.

As recently as two weeks ago, Peter Rice, the head of entertainment at Fox, told a seminar of television ­critics in California: ‘If Cheryl was to be on the show, I think she’s proved she’s a terrific judge. She has ­wonderful chemistry with Simon.’

But he added: ‘I think Simon is still meeting and ­trying to find the right mixture.’

That turns out to be an ominous statement for Cheryl. It appears Cowell is keen to have her on the show in some capacity — but the American producers are unconvinced she is a big enough star to merit a place on the panel.

She may end up helping him to mentor his group, a role taken by Sinitta in the UK version. The feeling is that, while she is big in the UK, she is still a nobody in America. The show’s rival American Idol has Jennifer Lopez and Steve Tyler. Fox are keen to put their star power in the shade.

Cowell wanted Katy Perry, but she is too busy touring this year. I’m told he is also intrigued by the idea of getting someone genuinely iconic, like singer Diana Ross, to sit on the panel, possibly alongside a younger star such as former Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger.

Speaking at the National Television Awards, he indicated the show needs to be ‘bigger and better’ than any other he has done, which does not augur well for Cheryl.

Cowell is supposedly doing ‘everything in his power’ to persuade U.S. bosses that Miss Cole is the right choice to sit alongside him.

However, one friend of Simon’s told me he is making the decision in his customary way — which is to leave it until the last moment and then go, quite ruthlessly, with his gut instinct. So far, the indications are that his instinct is not favouring her.

Emotion: Ashley Cole is understood to have contacted Cheryl after her breakdown while speaking about him on Piers Morgan's Life Stories

So with Ashley still a presence in her life, Cheryl will continue to carve a future for herself in Los Angeles, even without the help of either Simon Cowell or Derek Hough.

She already has a busy programme of promotional activity in America for her album launch there.

She is also weighing up an offer from her friend of the Black Eyed Peas to appear as a judge on a TV show searching for an ‘urban’ performer.

This is welcome, as she would like to have more musical credibility. Somewhat predictably, she’s up for Worst Album and Least Stylish at the NME awards. Her supporters point out she has two Brit Award nominations, so why should she care?
But care she clearly does.

The bondage-style £2,200 Versace dress she poured herself into for last week’s awards shows off the handiwork of Mark Mahoney of the Shamrock Social Club tattoo studio in Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles.

Mahoney, who has also worked on David Beckham, spent 11 hours on the butterfly-based design descending down her back. It was done last August, as she holidayed in the city while recovering from malaria.

It’s said to symbolise growth and renewal. You can’t blame her for wanting a fresh start — but to have it emblazoned so permanently is an odd decision.

But then Cheryl is a curious mixture of hard confidence and insecurity, particularly when it comes to her appearance.

Although she loves fashion and calls it a ‘massive’ part of who she is, she has not enjoyed being ­elevated to the status of fashion icon. She told Elle magazine this year that she ‘couldn’t care less’ what the world thinks of her style. ‘If they like it, they like it.’

She added: ‘There’s only so much you can cope with and then you either allow it to swallow you up or you say: “Sod this.” I have had it with negativity and bitchiness.

‘I want people to like my music, but I couldn’t give a **** about what they think of me.’

Brave words of defiance. Indeed, Cheryl sounds very much like a young woman who — rightly or wrongly — is steeling herself for the probability of a big public rejection.

It remains to be seen whether meeting her ex-husband is another sign of her insecurity.


Cheryl Cole and ex-husband Ashley have secret meeting at their former marital home

By Daily Mail Reporter

Secret meeting: According to reports, Ashley Cole has begged ex wife Cheryl, seen here together in October 2009, for a date

It was the celebrity divorce that dominated the headlines last year after allegations of his multiple infidelities.

But Ashley Cole is hoping for a reconciliation with ex-wife Cheryl after the couple met secretly at their former marital home.

According to reports today, the Chelsea star also begged her for a date after getting 'positive signals' from the X Factor judge.

But last night, a friend of the Girls Aloud star told the News of the World she is 'wary' of getting back with the footballer over fears it would damage her career.

The newspaper reported that the ex-partners had met at the mansion in Surrey they shared when they were married after she appeared Piers Morgan's Life Stories in October.

A friend of Ashley's told the paper: 'The key thing that led to contact being restored was the interview. He feared another bucketload of s*** after all the media criticism.

'But Cheryl only spoke of love and tenderness. She couldn't have been nicer.'

After the secret reunion, Ashley is then believed to have bombarded Cheryl with calls and texts asking her out on a date.

Reluctant: Cheryl, pictured here at the National Television Awards last week, wasn't keen to see Ashley after the bash for fear of being photographed with him

The friend added: 'He has been getting some positive signals from Cheryl and has been responding to them.'

And according to sources at Chelsea Football Club, Ashley also asked to see her after last week's National Television Awards - but she refused.

A source at the London club said: 'This is the talk of the training ground. He called her and she told him she was going and he wanted tickets.

'He said they'd be discreet and make sure they weren't pictured together. It was obvious from his reaction she was unsure.'

Last night , her friend said Cheryl was 'wary' of a reconciliation as it would damage her career and possibly anger her boss Simon Cowell and close friend Derek Hough, who was there to pick up the pieces after she and Ashley split.

Tenderness: Cheryl got emotional on Piers Morgan's Life Stories as she spoke about her relationship with Ashley

They said: 'Cheryl's career has gone from strength to strength since she left Ashley. Any proper reconciliation would be career suicide.'

However, a report in the Sunday Mirror said she has decided to keep the surname 'Cole' to help her crack America.

She made the decision when she renewed her passport and changed it from her maiden name of Tweedy.

A source said: 'People knew who she was as Tweedy but she has only become truly famous as Cheryl Cole.

Talk of the training ground: Ashley, seen here in action for Chelsea in the FA Cup clash with Everton yesterday, is said to be the hot gossip at the west London club


Will Andy ever win a Grand Slam? Major questions over Scot's big-match nerve after he blows up for a third time

By Mike Dickson, Tennis Correspondent Reports From Melbourne

We came in the hope of seeing the Grand Slam- winning career of Andy Murray take flight. Sadly, we watched as he laid an egg instead.

Three finals in major tournaments and he has yet to win a set, indeed barely looked like doing so.

He looked further away than ever when going down 6-4, 6-2, 6-3 to his childhood rival, the mightily impressive Novak Djokovic, in the Australian Open final.

There is no disgrace in losing to someone who right now looks the equal of Rafael Nadal, but it should trouble Murray that he could not even lay a glove on a player who he had beaten on their last three meetings.

Most disappointingly of all, he appeared to have learned nothing from this same night 12 months ago when his straight-sets defeat by Roger Federer ended in a deluge of tears.

This time Murray was contrastingly matter-of-fact about the result, entirely in line with his flat response to what was surely his best chance yet of breaking Britain’s near 75-year drought of men’s Grand Slam titles.

From the outset he was too passive, just as he had been against Federer in 2010, missing the chance to get on top of the Serb when he, too, was at his most vulnerable and nervous.

About the only animation we saw was the recalcitrant teenager-type ranting at his box and occasional gesturing to them to calm down. Once Djokovic pounced in the 10th game there was really only one man in it.

Wrapped up in a green wax jacket and brown boots, Andy Murray's girlfriend Kim Sears is all smiles as she walks their dog ahead of his big match with Alejandra Gutierrez, the wife of Andy's brother. A few hours later it was a very different story as the 23-year-old Scot lost in the Australian Open final for the second year running

To the victor, the spoils: Serbia's Novak Djokovic poses for photographers with his Australian Open trophy

Thereafter, the 23-year-old Serb was outstanding and some of his baseline defence defied human biology as he did the splits and managed to loop back his opponent’s attempts at winners.

Djokovic was terrific and surely no easier a prospect than Nadal or Federer. But that is a reminder these opportunities may not come around too often for Murray, certainly not often enough for him to fail to turn up.

Let us be clear, however, that this is far from the end of the Scot’s Grand Slam ambitions. He can look at Andre Agassi, Ivan Lendl and Goran Ivanisevic as modern examples of players who lost their first three Slam finals (Lendl lost four) and ended up winning — the American and the Czech eight times, the Croat just the once.

It is customary after big matches for the winner to tell the loser that his day will come — Tim Henman often had that ringing in his ears — and Murray’s may come soon, but not until he learns to respond with the proper mindset to the biggest occasions.

Any time you get to the final of a Grand Slam and show the kind of courage he did to win his semi-final, it has not been a bad fortnight, but to achieve the extraordinary you have to come up with something special.

It is hard not to conclude that he suffered from failing to have a coach here who is used to going deep into a Grand Slam — his part-time consultant Alex Corretja, the former world No 2, remaining in Spain.

But the biggest single reason for yesterday’s huge disappointment was the brilliance of Djokovic, who was consistently the best player at this tournament, with his revamped serve to the fore. That was the department in which he outplayed Murray, as well as the relatively flatfooted British

No 1’s traditional forte of defence behind the baseline.

Both players were edgy at the start, but Djokovic was always the more assertive and at 5-4 he noticeably cranked up his intensity, driving deep and clinching the break to 15 when he forced Murray to hit long on the forehand.

That sparked a nightmare 20-minute spell for the Scot who, while his opponent seized the moment, went into meltdown.

Murray was defeated in straight sets by Djokovic, becoming the first player to reach three grand slam finals and not managing to win a single set during any of them

Murray, who could not defuse his opponent’s lethal forehand, stopped the collapse by securing two games at 0-5 and then got his one meaningful break at the start of of the third set.

A missed overhead, one of several, contributed to him getting broken straight back, and although there was an exchange of breaks to keep glimmers of a comeback alive, it never looked like being ‘David Ferrer revisited’.

A final break of service for 5-3 effectively sealed it.

Surprisingly, Djokovic barely celebrated in the immediate aftermath.

Partly it was out of respect for Murray, his friend, but partly it was down to him not having been given much of a contest.It had all been so curiously, disappointingly straightforward.

No need to panic, Murray still has time on his sideINSIGHT: Brad Gilbert, Andy Murray's former coach

Don’t be kidded by Andy Murray’s outwardly composed response to this defeat — I know inside he will be really hurting, even stunned by the result.

My advice would be for him not to panic and, related to that, not to take the extended break he talked about. After having a well-earned rest, get back on the horse and start riding again, because there is still everything to play for.

Andy has lost twice in major finals to Roger Federer and once to Novak Djokovic — on each occasion facing a player ranked above him.

He needs to look not only at Ivan Lendl and Andre Agassi as people who also had difficulty opening their Grand Slam tally but also to this year’s women’s champion Kim Clijsters, who lost in four finals before she got going (she has now won her last four).

There is no doubt that winning your first one is the hardest thing to do, but I still maintain that Andy has a window of about eight, maybe 12 tournaments in which to do that. It is not as if this was like the crushing, fourth round exit at Flushing Meadows against Stan Wawrinka.

But I was wrong in predicting that Andy would narrowly shade a victory yesterday. Where I was right was in saying that the real key to the match would involve who took care of their second serve the best.

The statistics, which showed that Novak won 60 per cent on his compared to Andy’s 31 per cent, tell a lot of the story.

That’s a huge difference and, while the British player had a bad serving night, his opponent really hit his spots.

Andy did not move particularly well, either, in contrast to Djokovic, whose overall calm really impressed me.

I knew he was in a special vein of form when he allowed Tomas Berdych, who had been looking pretty special himself, just eight games in the quarter-final, and he carried that on right through the tournament.

For the last six years we have seen Rafael Nadal and Federer finish the season as the top two in the world. After Djokovic’s US Open final appearance and winning here, there can be every expectation he will break up that arrangement this year.

Andy is the worthy world no 4 and the good news is that he can still improve significantly, because there is so much to his game and it was always going to take time, probably longer than with most players, for everything to come together.

I have mentioned his second serve, but I was actually very impressed with it all tournament until the final.

All he needs to do is remember Lendl, and his fellow former charge of mine, Agassi.

The lesson is that by the end of his career Andre had won every Grand Slam there is to win, which should be an inspiration.
