Price hits out at pregnancy claims

She says she's "100 per cent not pregnant!"

Katie Price has hit out at claims she's expecting another baby.

The star, mother to Harvey, Junior and Princess, took to Twitter to say she was "100 per cent not pregnant!"

She said: "If a girl doesn't have a flat stomach or is a size zero that means she is pregnant! Give us girls a break."

Katie, 32, tweeted as ex-husband Peter Andre wrote that he and Katie, now married to cage fighter Alex Reid, had begun to forge a more friendly relationship.

He wrote in New! magazine: "Things are amicable between Kate and me at the moment and I'm really keen to keep it this way for the sake of the children.

"It's weird having been with the kids solidly for three weeks and now not seeing them for another three, but that's the deal and we have to share them."

Krystle Warren at Limetree Festival

She has honed a distinctive musical style that merges jazz, blues, folk, funk and pop

With a string of sell-out shows, and an ever-growing international following, Krystle Warren has quickly become hot property.

She hails from Kansas City and learned to play the guitar by listening to Rubber Soul and Revolver. Busking on the streets of New York and Paris, she honed a distinctive musical style that merges jazz, blues, folk, funk and pop, combining a range of influences from Rufus Wainwright to Betty Carter, Willie Nelson to Nina Simone.

There is no Krystle Warren-shaped pigeon-hole. The last 12 months have seen her equally at home touring with the high priests of “vocal play” Naturally 7, appearing alongside the likes of Green Gartside, Teddy Thompson, and Robyn Hitchcock on the Way To Blue – The Songs of Nick Drake tour, opening for Mercury Award winning Portico Quartet and most recently playing two sell out shows at Southbank Centre as part of Richard Thompson’s Meltdown.

Krystle Warren’s latest album Circles is out now on Manu Chao’s label.

Combining an infectious onstage energy with a cracking sense of humour, Krystle live is a treat.

“Warren’s voice is an extraordinary instrument, murmuring with tenderness at times, growling with intensity at others. It vividly recalls Nina Simone in its depth and smokiness, as well as John Martyn and Buckley in terms of virtuosic variety.” (Guardian). “Warren’s talents are extraordinary. She’s the real deal.”(The Observer)

Michael Douglas has throat tumour

He said he expected to make a full recovery, and is "very optimistic"

Michael Douglas is to undergo eight weeks of radiation and chemotherapy for a tumour in his throat.

The 65-year-old actor said he expected to make a full recovery and told People magazine he was "very optimistic".

The Oscar-winning Wall Street star, who is married to British actress Catherine Zeta Jones, appears this year in the sequel, Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps.

Michael is currently outside the US, publicist Allen Burry said. He refused to give his location or say where he would be treated.

Michael and Catherine bought a house on Bermuda nearly a decade ago and Zeta-Jones said they planned to raise their two children there.

Kelly Brook embracing 'naked month'

She has shed her clothes for a Playboy shoot and a movie

Kelly Brook has revealed she is fully embracing nudity.

The model and actress has shed her clothes for both a Playboy shoot and the movie Piranha 3D, which come out just a short time apart.

Kelly said shedding her clothes for the Playboy shoot was an accolade.

"It's a little bit embarrassing but I was excited," she said as she attended the Breakthrough Of The Year Awards in Los Angeles. "Playboy is something that I always wanted to do but I wanted to make sure it was the right time, the right concept and everything."

The former Strictly Come Dancing star explained: "Having this movie coming out where I get to make out underwater with a porn star naked, I just thought, 'Why not just embrace it and make this month my naked month where everything I do is naked?'"

The 30-year-old said she loved the retro styling, where she wears a bowler hat, bow-tie, cuffs, black lacy underwear and clutches an umbrella.

She joked there was "not much thinking involved in posing for Playboy".

"It was fun to play and get into character, dress up a little bit," Kelly added.

Piranha 3D comes out in the UK on August 20 and Kelly's Playboy shoot appears in the September edition.

The Rough Guide To Salsa Dance CD

Dance to new, spicy and infectious Salsa rhythms

Feisty and free-spirited, Salsa Dance is the Latin dance groove taking the world by storm and a new stunning Rough Guide shows you why.

The Rough Guide To Salsa Dance released by World Music Network, gives you an opportunity to learn the moves and hone your skills with a free instructional DVD.

The grande dame of Buena Vista Social Club fame, Omara Portuondo brings a buoyant and sophisticated touch to the classic flute and strings charanga orchestra of bygone 1950s Cuba on ‘El Madrugador’, a guajira cha-cha-cha about the beautiful Cuban countryside.

Latin Giants Of Jazz feature an all-star line-up from members of the former Tito Puente Orchestra and the Spanish Harlem Orchestra and on ‘Miedo Al Cha Cha Chá’ they revisit a seminal recording from the classic NYC Latin big-band era of the 1940s and 1950s.

Previously with the Spanish Harlem Orchestra, Willy Torres and his NYC Salsa Project produced the killer track ‘Baila Con Sabor’ with renowned DJ Henry Knowles.

Willy’s distinctive voice also features on the 3D Ritmo De Vida track ‘Oyelo’, along with veteran sonero Herman Olivera. With a little Cuban-style timba in it (that’s Ricky González on piano, Chembo Corniel and Chino Nuñez on percussion) this cut has some interesting trap drumming and guitar.

Today’s salsa dancers crave the occasional boogaloo, and Fruko Y Sus Tesos oblige us here with a fantastic example of a pumped-up Colombian version on ‘Sale El Boogaloo’. A Fruko Y Sus Tesos veteran, when Joe Arroyo broke out on his own, he created a whole new universe of Afro-tropical spice. His track here picks up the pace towards the end, leading the dancer into hotter territory, and is a great example of infectious Colombian salsa at its best.

Bronx veteran pianist Wayne Gorbea and his rock-steady Salsa Picante crew are the perfect salsa dance orchestra for all levels of dancers. The prominent clave and guiro groove on ‘Ven Baila Conmigo’ help you lock step and the punchy brass help you lift your feet. Featuring piano maestro Leonel ‘Papo’ Ortega and tres guitar player Junior Rivera, Cubanoson inject enough swing and sabor típico (typical flavour) into ‘La Fiesta’ to keep things exciting all night long.

Steeped in spicy and infectious rhythms, The Rough Guide To Salsa Dance is an innovative package including an instructional DVD alongside the talents of artists such as salsa dura mavericks Bio Ritmo and La Excelencia and the phenomenal pianist Alex Wilson on the music CD.

Joe Arroyo Y La Verdad, La Excelencia, Gilberto ‘Pulpo’ Colón Jr, Wayne Gorbea’s Salsa Picante, Bio Ritmo, Alex Wilson, Cubanoson, Willy’s NYC Salsa Project, Alex Torres Y Su Orquesta, 3D Ritmo De Vida, Fruko Y Sus Tesos, Latin Giants Of Jazz & Omara Portuondo
