Katy Perry finds the English accent sexy.

The 32-year-old pop star, who was previously married to comedian Russell Brand and recently dated actor Orlando Bloom, has admitted she loves the "posh" accent and other British traditions, like the Sunday roast, a meal that consists of roasted meat, roast potato and gravy.

She shared: "Many of my English boyfriends that I've had along the way (have made them).

"I've fancied them. I'm very attracted to their accents, of course - so posh."

Katy admitted her love of British culture extends to a number of other common meals, too.

She told the BBC Radio 1 'Breakfast Show': "I've had bubble and squeak too. I've had it all ... I love a fresh-baked Yorkshire pudding."

Katy also revealed she is a fan of the British grime star Stormzy, whose debut album 'Gang Signs & Prayer' recently entered the UK album charts at number one.

The 'Roar' hitmaker said: "I love him!"

Meanwhile, it was recently reported that Katy and Orlando Bloom "still text and talk", despite the celebrity duo calling time on their almost year-long romance.

An insider previously explained: "[Orlando] is just not ready for a serious relationship, but getting back together with Perry is not out of the question.

"He cares deeply for Perry and they have a very carefree dynamic with each other. They are both free spirits."

Previously, it was suggested that the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' actor pulled the plug on his relationship with Katy as he didn't want things to get too serious.

A source claimed: "Katy and Orlando had a great time together.

"It was a great healing process for Orlando following his divorce from Miranda [Kerr]. But Katy and Orlando discovered they were on different pages.

"Katy wants children and to get married, while Orlando has been there and done that.

"At 32, Katy doesn't want to waste any more time. It became a strain."

Jesy Nelson has rubbished rumors of a rift between herself and Perrie Edwards.

Speculation had suggested the Little Mix duo were at loggerheads after Jesy was cropped out of one of Perrie's Instagram snaps - but the 25-year-old star has dismissed the claims and insisted they are still good friends.

Speaking in a Snapchat video, Jesy explained: "So we'd just like to address the situation of the friendship between me and Perrie. Do you think I'd be laying in her bed if I weren't friends with her?!"

Speculation regarding their relationship erupted when Jesy was cut out of the full line-up of the group at the Kids' Choice Awards in a snap posted by Perrie, with the blonde beauty saying her bandmate "didn't like any of the photos".

But Jesy appeared to have a rather dramatic change of heart on Sunday (03.12.17) when she posted seven pictures of herself at the event on Instagram.

Jesy's apparent defiance prompted suggestions that she was upset with her bandmate, but she's subsequently insisted that's not the case and that the issue has been blown out of proportion.

Meanwhile, Jesy has previously insisted the group will not outstay their welcome, saying they don't ever wish to be considered "cringe".

Speaking in 2016, Jesy said: "We'd stop if it got to a point where people are like, 'They're so done, why are they still trying?'"

Bandmate Leigh-Anne Pinnock - who is currently dating soccer star Andre Gray - has also admitted she'd like to have children at some stage in the future.

She shared: "Can we all just promise we'll have children around the same time to form another band?"

Jade Thirlwall added that she would like to have children at the same time as her bandmates so they don't have to spend too long away from the spotlight.

Jade said: "[We should] have them at the same time so we can all come back together."

Sir Patrick Stewart uses medical marijuana on a daily basis.

The 76-year-old actor has revealed he uses an ointment, spray and edible marijuana medicine in order to combat the symptoms of his arthritis.

Sir Patrick explained: "Two years ago, in Los Angeles, I was examined by a doctor and given a note which gave me legal permission to purchase, from a registered outlet, cannabis-based products, which I was advised might help the ortho-arthritis in both my hands.

"This, it would seem, is a genetically-based condition. My mother had badly distorted and painful hands.

"I purchased an ointment, spray and edibles. The ointment, while providing some relief from the discomfort, was too greasy to use during daytime and so I only use it at night.

"It helps with sleep as the pain was reduced. The spray, however, is much more usable and I spray my fingers and particularly my thumb joints several times a day."

The 'Logan' actor made the confession in support of a research initiative by Oxford University, which is seeking to uncover the benefits of cannabis-based medicines.

Explaining how he uses the medicine, Sir Patrick said: "The spray very quickly evaporates and leaves my hands quite dry, though with a slight burning or tingling sensation, which is not unpleasant.

"I believe that the ointment and spray have significantly reduced the stiffness and pain in my hands. I can make fists, which was not the case before I began this treatment."

Sir Patrick hopes the research will serve to remove the prejudice that surrounds marijuana use.

He said, according to the Daily Mail newspaper: "This is an important step forward for Britain in a field of research that has for too long been held back by prejudice, fear and ignorance. I believe this programme of research might result in benefits for people like myself as well as millions of others."

Demi Lovato is "so proud of" herself for staying sober for five years.

The 'Cool for the Summer' hitmaker is thrilled to be reaching such a milestone in her recovery but admits there have been ups and downs and times when she "wanted to relapse".

Celebrating the five years with a post on Instagram, she wrote: "So grateful. It's been quite the journey. So many ups and downs. So many times I wanted to relapse but sat on my hands and begged God to relieve the obsession.

"I'm so proud of myself but I couldn't have done it without my higher power (God), my family, friends, and everyone else who supported me. Feeling humbled and joyful today. Thank you guys for sticking by my side and believing in me (sic)"

Meanwhile, Demi previously admitted it "feels amazing" to be celebrating five years sobriety.

She said: "It feels amazing. All I've been doing is focusing on bettering myself. It's been quite the journey, but it's well worth it. Surrendering is the most important thing whenever you're trying to battle your demons. You have to admit that you have a problem first, and then you can overcome them.

"People have reached out and I've been able to help. Some people it helps, some people - that's their own journey. But, if anyone ever needs anything, I'm always around."

And Demi previously admitted she is glad she "created a conversation" about mental health by opening up about her own struggles.

She said: "I hope that this film will show people that there is nothing wrong with having a mental health condition. If you do have one, you are able to live well and thrive with a mental health condition, if you are able to speak up and be vocal about the things you are going through.

"There's something about when you speak out and are vocal about your story, it's very inviting to others who are dealing with the same thing. And if you can make that impact on somebody's life, it does something for you spiritually that makes you want to tell the story again and again and again.

"It's very important we create conversations, we take away the stigma, and that we stand up for ourselves if we're dealing with the symptoms of a mental illness. It is possible to live well and thrive with a mental illness."

Hilary Duff thinks being divorced "sucks".

The 'Younger' star split from ex-husband Mike Comrie - with whom she shares four-year-old son Luca - last year and admits it was tough at first.

She said: "Some of my friends tell me, 'God, it must be so nice, you get a break from your kid because you share him.' I'm divorced, and it sucks.

"Well, it did suck for a while; now it's just normal. But it's true, I do get a break. I had Luca by myself for a few weeks, no help, when Mike was on the road, and when he got home I was like, 'He's yours! Bye!'"

And the 29-year-old actress and singer isn't too enamoured by the Los Angeles dating scene.

She added: "I never think being single sucks until I go out in Los Angeles with my girlfriends and the options are terrible. I really attract the old men!"

And Hilary admits she can feel guilty about leaving her son behind when she is working.

She added: "I always feel torn or guilty about something. I'm not working right now, and at first I stressed about that, like, 'Oh, I shouldn't stay still this long.' And that's ridiculous.

"I have a child; it's totally fine to not be slammed all the time. It feels really good to not be on someone else's schedule - besides Luca's. I'm basically his chauffeur!"

The blonde beauty hasn't ruled out having any more children in the future.

She told the new issue of Redbook magazine: "I've gotten over the fact that I'm not going to have a baby that's close in age with Luca. It sucked when everyone would be like, 'When are you having another?' I'd be like, 'Do you know what's happening right now? I'm not having another.'

"You get engaged, 'When's the wedding?' You get married, 'When's the baby?' You have a baby, 'When's the next one?' ... I'm cherishing the now. Besides, watch: I'll probably get some evil spawn of Hilary the next time around."

Adam Levine is "battling" with Behati Prinsloo to get their daughter to say 'dada' first.

The Maroon 5 frontman is desperate for his five-month-old daughter Dusty Rose to utter his name first that he's trying every tactic to come out on top.

Speaking during an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, he said: "I've been working 'dada' hard. You do slip it into every single thing you say. Like if she's being cute, you're like, 'Oh, my God. Look how cute you are. Dada.'

"We've gotten some 'dada'-esque sounds, but nothing concrete. But I'm working super hard on it. And my wife is working 'mama,' so it's a battle to the finish, but we'll see."

Meanwhile, the 37-year-old singer previously admitted he is finding parenting a "beautiful experience".

He said: "I've been a parent for three weeks; what do I know? I don't know anything, but it's kind of part of the beauty of it, honestly. There are a lot of instincts, a lot of things that kind of kick in and switch on. It's a beautiful experience."

And Adam and Behati want to parent on their own instinct and not pay too much attention to the advice they have been offered.

He shared: "When you are doing this for the first time, everybody loves to tell you what you should be doing. So, we're kind of tuning a lot of it out and we're just going to do it how we do it."

Before his little girl was welcomed into the world, Adam admitted he was "ready" to be a parent.

He said: "I'm ready to be a dad. You're born to be a parent, that's what we're here for, really. All the other s**t is great, but it's not what we're here for."

A public memorial service in honour of Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds will feature music and dance tributes to the iconic stars.

The 'Star Wars' actress and her mother passed away within days of one another in December, and though they were laid to rest in a private funeral service, fans will now get their chance to pay their last respects on March 25.

According to TMZ, the memorial will be held at a 1,200-seat theater at Forest Lawn cemetery, where the pair are buried, and will include a musical tribute from Carrie's close friend James Blunt.

While the 'You're Beautiful' singer won't be performing, a new song he's written in honour of his late pal will be debuted as a photo montage is broadcast, Carrie's brother Todd told the website.

Also planned for the service is a dance tribute from the Debbie Reynolds dance school, and a musical performance from the Gay Men's Chorus of Los Angeles.

Additionally, costumes and memorabilia from the 'Singin' in the Rain' star and her famous daughter's movie sets will be on display.

Carrie's daughter, Billie Lourd, will be in attendance but won't address the audience because it is "too emotional" for her to give a speech.

And guest of honour will be Carrie's beloved dog Gary.

Todd announced in January that the public service would be taking place this month.

He said at the time: "We will be celebrating their lives with friends, family members, and the people who loved them, you. The service will begin at 1:00 PM and immediately afterwards, those who want to walk to their final resting place are welcome to do so.

"There are a limited number of seats available, and it will be on a first come first come, first seated basis, There are no tickets, it is first come, first seated. There will be room for overflow in the huge lobby as well as the outside with screens to watch and hear the service."

Angelina Jolie and her eldest son were given a private tour of Buckingham Palace on Tuesday (03.14.17) night.

The 41-year-old actress' visit to London will certainly be one she'll never forget as she and 15-year-old Maddox were allowed to roam around Queen Elizabeth's home - but neither of them are believed to have met any members of the royal family.

The brunette beauty - who also has children Pax, 11, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 10, and eight-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox with her estranged husband Brad Pitt - and her son were spotted climbing into a car from their hotel and then making their way to the lavish property before being allowed through the iron gates of the palace, according to MailOnline.

Buckingham Palace is not yet open to members of the public but tours of its State Rooms will take place from 9:30am to 7:30pm from July 22 to August 31, before it'll reopen to tourists from September 1 to October 1.

Earlier in the day, the 'Maleficient' star made her first appearance at the London School of Economics' (LSE) Centre for Women, Peace and Security in her role as a visiting professor to talk to students about her work as United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and as the co-founder of the Preventing Sexual Violence Initiative, and admitted that she was riddled with nerves before her speech.

She said at the time: "I'm a little nervous, feeling butterflies. I hope I do well. This is very important to me."

A spokesperson from LSE added: "Angelina Jolie spoke to a class of students taking the postgraduate course 'Women, Peace and Security,' as part of her role as visiting professor in practice in the Centre for Women, Peace and Security. Miss Jolie spoke about her experience and what has motivated her work as UNHCR special envoy and as co-founder of the Preventing Sexual Violence Initiative, and took questions from the class."

Angelina previously launched the one-year MSc course on women, peace and security alongside Britain's former foreign secretary, William Hague.
