Danny, 23, plays Mark 'Dodger' Savage' and arrived on Hollyoaks in March but has already established himself as a pin-up in that short time.

But he was sure to break some hearts today as former Hollyoaks star Carly Stenson announced that she and Mac are an item.

Rounders, anyone? Some of the cast including Danny, Nick, Lucy Dixon, Jessica Forrest and James Atherton

And as he won the award, she told heat magazine: 'I've done well. I've bagged myself the sexiest male!'

Tara Palmer-Tomkinson follows the crowd to a risqué night out... and leaves The Box looking rather worse for wear

By Sarah Fitzmaurice

Bleary eyed: Tara Palmer Tomkinson looking the worse for wear outside The Box nightclub in Soho

It was never going to be long before Britain's most renowned It Girl was photographed outside the country's most talked-about new nightspot.

And Tara Palmer-Tomkinson clearly enjoyed her evening at The Box, the Soho venue at the centre of controversy over its risqué burlesque performances.

A seriously good night? Tara looks as if she had a hell of a time inside the notorious Soho club

It had all started so well : Tara, right seen earlier in the evening, and left, looking seriously bedraggled after leaving The Box

The socialite, 39, was pictured leaving in the early hours of yesterday morning looking very much the worse for wear.

The sleazy club has become increasingly popular with celebrities - and even royals - for its performances featuring topless women and reputedly live sex acts.

Unsteady: Tara leant on the club wall for support and appeared to be exchanging words with the doorman

Bloody hellish: Tara shows off a cut on her finger as she finally leaves the club

However, it's not clear what events occurred inside the Soho nightspot that left the heiress looking quite so shell-shocked.

As she left she appeared to be having words with one of the burly doormen, and even got involved in a flashmob like impromptu dance party
in the street.

Accident: Tara's spokesperson explained she cut her finger while picking up her handbag from under the table

She was also spotted by onlookers slumped against a wall outside of the club, was also nursing a cut on her finger.

Tara's spokesperson explained: ' She cut her finger quite deeply while picking up her handbag from under the table.

'She caught it on broken glass. Tara then left to have it treated and was naturally in shock.'

Boogie night: Tara keeps the party going in the street

The club has been visited by Prince Harry who spent an evening there with friends in February.

While actress Keira Knightley and cricketer Kevin Pietersen have also been pictured at the venue.

But Tara clearly was keen to check it out for herself and left looking like she'd enjoyed it a bit too much.

The evening had started so well, as the socialite looked sleek in her rock-chick outfit before hitting the club.

Party on: Tara carries on partying in the street and playfully takes party goers cap

She had attended the Quintessentially Awards at 1 Marylebone and left looking like the party was already in full swing as as she made her way to The Box.

It had been a different story earlier in the day when she was snapped looking much more presentable as she decided to match her outfit with the weather.

She donned a pair of red hot jeans, showing off her slim legs with a skinny fit, as she headed out for a shopping trip yesterday.

Katie Price tries to keep up with the young ‘uns… as she parties with TOWIE girls for Lauren Pope's fun-filled birthday

By Marcus Barnes

On her way home: Miss Price left the birthday celebrations after the meal - opting to avoid carrying on the party

It was supposed to be her friend's special night, but Katie Price managed to steal the limelight from Lauren Pope on a night out to celebrate her 28th birthday.

Miss Price, 33, joined Lauren and several friends, including fellow TOWIE star Maria Fowler, for a jaunt to central London.

The motley crew hit seafood restaurant Zilli in Soho, before heading to the Shadow Lounge to continue partying.

Eye of the tiger: Katie Price outstaged her friend Lauren Pope during her birthday celebrations in central London wearing an unusual pair of leggings

But it was Katie Price's rather obscure wardrobe choice that became the centrepoint of the evening.

The glamour model wore a white vest with a large tiger face emblazoned across its entire front,with an unusual pair of leggings with sheer panels down the sides, metal detailing down the front of the legs and studded knee pads.

She completed the outfit with a pair of beige ankle boots.

Birthday girl: The glamour model keeps hold of her birthday balloons as she poses with friends Tommy Clark and 'Mikey Kardashian'

According to reports it took a grand total of 16 hours for Miss Price to have her new hair extensions fitted.

Despite her outlandish outfit overshadowing her friend's toned down look, Katie sensibly opted to head home early after the group had shared a meal together.

Celebrity chef Aldo Zilli personally cooked for the pair, and Katie Price dined on a healthy organic baked sea bass without drinking – taking seriously her new role as Lauren’s agent and leaving at 8pm.

Her early exit may well have been to allow Lauren to soak up all of the attention on the night.

I think the party's over there: Lauren tries to direct her friends as the party crew amble around Soho

No thrills: Lauren Gooder and Maria Fowler were unusually understated

Meanwhile birthday girl Lauren looked great in a far more understated LBD which perfectly complimented her fantastic figure.

The birthday girl carried a foil balloon throughout the evening, so she at least got a share of the attention during the course of the night.

Katie and Lauren have been friends for some time and have been pictured partying together on several.

Unsociable: Lucy Meckleburgh and her boyfriend Mario were pictured outside Zilli's but they didn't pop in to say Happy Birthday to Lauren

Most recently Lauren attended a birthday party for Miss Price's boyfriend Leandro Penna.

Also present were Lauren's friends and The Only Way Is Essex co-stars Maria Fowler and Lauren Goodger.

Maria, 25, wore a patterned mini dress by AX Paris, while Lauren Goodger wore a similar cut blue number with long sleeves by

Turning the tables: Aldo Zilli snaps the paps while hosting Lauren Pope's birthday - he later posted his photo to Twitter

Both ladies kept their top halves covered up, perhaps to allow their friend the birthday girl to bask in the limelight.

Coincidentally fellow TOWIE star Luck Mecklburgh and her new man Mario walked past the restaurant while their co-stars were inside, but they didn't pop in to say hello.

Earlier in the evening Lauren was obviously excited about her impending night out.

Party people: Lauren and her motley crew make their way through Soho

She tweeted: 'Headin into London for my bday celebrations, gotta feelin this could be a drunken one!!'

Her first stop was Zilli's restaurant, where the group enjoyed a spot of seafood put on by hosts Aldo and Nikki Zilli.

The posse, which also included Lauren's friends Tommy Clark, Jemma Stern and a few colourful characters including hairstylist 'Mikey Kardashian' and Joey Haines, ended up in gay venue the Shadow Lounge.

The private members-only club touts itself as 'one of the most unashamedly stylish, fashionable and sumptuous experiences in the capital'.


With Ur Love: Cher Lloyd is supported by her man as she continues to promote her music despite recent Twitter threats

By Kirsty Mccormack

Lean on me: Cher Lloyd arrived at the Key 103 radio station in Manchester arm in arm with her boyfriend today

She may have been the victim of Twitter abuse last week, but Cher Lloyd is determined not to let them ruin her success.

The 18-year-old singer arrived at Key 103 radio station in Manchester today to continue the promotion of her upcoming debut album.

With her boyfriend, Craig Monk, by her side the former X Factor contestant looked happy as she arrived for her appearance on the airwaves.

Wearing an odd combination of colours, the singer teamed a pair of off white skinny jeans with an ACDC printed top, and although the sun was shining she decided to wear an over-sized bright blue baseball jacket on top.

With her brown curly hair in its usual side style, Lloyd also carried her belongings in a brown tassled drawstring bag and completed her look with a pair of black and tan coloured brogues.

Trainee hairdresser Craig on the other hand stuck to neutral colours by wearing a camel coloured pair of trousers with a grey printed t-shirt.

Brave face: Cher wore an odd outfit that consisted of off white skinny jeans and a bright blue baseball jacket and she completed the look with a smile

The pair have been dating since June, after meeting when Monk put in the teen singer's hair extensions at the Four Salon in Mayfair where he works.

And lately it seems that Lloyd's doting boyfriend seems to accompany her wherever she goes.

The singer also made an appearance on Radio One last week and arrived with supportive Monk in tow.

Young love: Cher met trainee hairdresser, Craig Monk when he put her hair extensions in for her earlier this year

Lloyd's debut album is due to be released in November, with the star's second single, With Ur Love, being released on October 30.

But at a time when Lloyd should be enjoying the build up to her album release, she has been the victim of death threats via Twitter after she posted a birthday message to her mother.

Today it was reported that the Swagger Jagger singer is calling for government intervention to halt online abuse from 'trolls' who torment others via social networking sites.


We know you're single Carol but you're wasting your time with Spence... just so you know!

By Sarah Bull and Kirsty Mccormack

Barking up the wrong tree: Dance expert, Louie Spence reveals a bit too much of Carol Vorderman on Loose Women

She might be 50 and single, but Carol Vorderman appeared to be barking up the wrong tree as she lapped up attention from Louie Spence today.

Pineapple Dance Studios star, Spence, appeared on ITV1's Loose Women this afternoon, but only had eyes for former Countdown star Carol.

The 42-year-old dance expert stunned the audience by flirting with the mother-of-two and pulling down the sleeve of her tan coloured top to look at her cleavage.

Vorderman appeared to love the attention and couldn't stop laughing and even played up to the joke by pulling both sides of her top down to emphasise her chest.

Vorderman has been married twice and had a high-profile split from Daily Mail columnist Des Kelly last year.

Such a flirt: Camp Louie laughs with Carol after attempting to look down her top on today's show

Loose Woman: Carol, who has won Rear of the Year, showed off her chest after her fumble with Louie

But now she is single, and insists she has never been happier.

The Loose Women presenter admitted she has not been on her own since her teenage years, and is thoroughly enjoying only having to look out for herself.

Deja Vu: Carol left the ITV studios today in her favourite pair of denim jeans and a khaki short-sleeved shirt

She said: 'I've always been with someone from the age of 15, I've always had a boyfriend, husband or lived with someone.

'Now's the first time in my life that I've been single and I really like it. But that's not to say I'm not dating, by the way.'

'I'm having the time of my life': Twice-married Carol Vorderman, 50, says she's happier than ever being single

Slender: Size 10 Carol, seen in London yesterday, also said since turning 50 she has learned to be happy with her body

Vorderman was married to Royal Navy officer Christopher Mather in 1985, but the pair split after 12 months.

She then married management consultant Patrick King, father of her two children, in 1990, but they separated in 2000.

Former love: Carol's most recent relationship was with Daily Mail columnist Des Kelly, from whom she split earlier this year

Vorderman's most recent relationship was with columnist Kelly, who she dated from 1999 to 2007, before the pair rekindled their relationship but split for good earlier this year.

But while Vorderman is happy with her romantic situation, her famous curves mean she's not short of offers from eager admirers.

And speaking about her figure, which earned her the title of Rear of the Year, Carol said now she has hit a half-century, she has finally learned to be happy with her body.

Family life: Carol with her mother Jean Davies and children Katie and Cameron

She said: 'Turning 50 changed me and I'm far more accepting of myself. I'm not thin, but I am a size 10. I go in at the middle and very much out at the bottom and top.

'And now I think, "Well, that's how I am". Does my bum look big in this? The answer is always yes, But now I don't try to fight what's not going to change.'


It's not THAT hot! Imogen Thomas needs no excuse to strip to a bikini top and miniskirt in the London sunshine

By Sarah Bull

It's not that hot! Imogen Thomas made the most of the London sunshine by wearing a red polka dot bikini top and denim miniskirt

She's been showing off her figure in sports bras and tiny shorts for her Bikram yoga classes in recent weeks.

So it's no wonder that when the first rays of sunshine came breaking through the clouds in London today, former Big Brother star Imogen Thomas was one of the first to strip off and make the most of the warm weather.

The 28-year-old star was spotted wearing a polka dot bikini top and tiny denim miniskirt as she strolled along the streets of London carrying her top.

Imogen wrote on her Twitter page: 'Wow london is so hot hot hot! Phewwww!!!'

The TV presenter was enjoying a relaxing day after attending the Rock Of Ages gala night at London's Shaftesbury Theatre the night before.

Despite having attended regular yoga classes, Imogen told her followers on Twitter that she has been putting on weight in recent weeks.

When someone said she was looking too skinny, Imogen replied: 'Really? I've put on weight since america.'

She later told another fan: 'I can't get skinny I love my food way too much!'
Imogen no doubt attracted a few men as she strolled along in her sexy get-up this afternoon.

And it was recently reported that Imogen's curves have caught the attention of one reality TV star in particular - The Only Way Is Essex's Mark Wright.

A source told The Sun: 'Mark is more keen on Imogen than she is on him.

'He has been sending her text messages since he split with Lauren Goodger last month.
'Now he's gone one further by sending her X-rated picture messages too. Imogen likes him but has a few blokes on the go, so Mark wants to win her over.'

Busy girl: Imogen last night attended the gala night of new musical Rock Of Ages and earlier this week went to the launch of Adee Phelan's new salon in Birmingham

Stay strong, Wrighty! TOWIE's Mark struggles with his celibacy pledge in a yoga class full of pretty and half-dressed girls


The Only Way is Hell: Mark Wright struggles to stay focused as he attends a yoga class full of pretty young Lycra-clad women

After vowing that he wasn't going to even look at another woman after breaking up with Lauren Goodger, a yoga class full of scantily-clad women wasn't exactly going to help his willpower.

But despite his eye wandering to all sorts of places - and body parts - during his zen workout, Mark Wright stuck to his pledge and left alone at the end of the class.

However, he soon bemoaned to his best mate how hard it had been to keep his mind on his yoga moves - and his celibacy vow.

He just can't cope! A sexy woman in tight and revealing workout clothes catches Mark's eye...

He met James 'Arg' Argent for a quick bite to eat, who couldn't help but tease Mark about doing the class.

But when he questioned his no-women vow, Mark said it had been a struggle and told him: 'I walked in, there were fourteen birds, an eight of ten minimum and all I can think about is boobs, arse and more arse. I nearly broke the celibacy right there and then!'

That was tough, Arg! Mark meets his best friend for lunch and tells him about his yoga class filled with 'eight out of ten' women

... so does some cleavage that is almost thrust in his face

He then teased Arg about having a salad and chips saying it defeated the object of his diet, as he told him about his earlier workout with Gemma Collins and one of the Greek twins, Dino, who was being their personal trainer.

She was at a car boot sale with her mother Deborah and Joey Essex as they attempted to sell their unwanted goods, but sadly only managed to make £6 between them, despite Joey insisting that his UGG boots were worth £1,000.

Defeating the object: Mark then teases Arg about having chips and salad even though he's on a diet, which makes him laugh

Encouraged by Lydia, he did manage to get himself a pair of jeans but Deborah laughed and said they were too small.

Viewers were also introduced to Harry's older brother Ronnie, as they got a van full of plants to take to the boot sale and when Harry asked what a pansy was, Ronnie replied: 'YOU should know what a pansy is!'

But are they reem though? Lydia Bright talks Joey Essex into buying a pair of second hand jeans at the car boot sale

Good day for some, bad for others: Harry and his brother Ronnie join Lydia, Joey and her mum who moans they've made £6 while the Derbidges boast about their £40 takings

As they drove off, Harry said: 'Why are there so many plants in here, it smells like green, I don't like the smell, don't like the colour.'

The boys ended up making £40 and celebrated with a pizza back at their house while they discussed Harry's sexuality and Ronnie said he'd take Harry to his first gay nightclub when he's 18.

I have no problem with you being gay: As Ronnie shares a pizza with Harry, he tells his younger brother he's going to take him to a gay nightclub when he hits 18

In the meantime, Harry had been recruited as Gemma's Cupid at her singles night that night which she was throwing at the Sugar Hut nightclub.

Earlier she had popped in to talk to owner Mick Norcross, who couldn't' believe his eyes as the slimmer and now brunette Gemma walked in the door and told her she looked 'absolutely foxy'.

You need to say sorry: As Lucy Mecklenburgh and Mario have coffee, Nicole Goodger comes over to thank her for helping her sister Lauren and Mark break up - but she has to apologise to her

Meanwhile, Lucy Mecklenburgh, who reportedly kissed Mark in Marbella shortly before he split from Goodger, was having a coffee with boyfriend Mario when Lauren's sister Nicole walked over to them.

As an uncomfortable Mario looked on, Nicole said to Lucy: 'Thanks for getting Mark away from my sister, she's finally seen the light and that's all down to you.'

Are you going to take this seriously? Mick Norcross talks to his son Kirk about their hotel plans

Awkward much? Kirk and Lauren have a strained meeting in the woods as they take their dog Bozo for a walk

But when Lucy insisted that breaking them up was not her intention, Nicole said she should apologise to Lauren.

Also during the show, fans saw Kirk and ex-girlfriend Lauren Pope meet up to walk their dog Bozo, which resulted in an awkward conversation between them about moving on and getting closure from each other.0

Singles night: The party proved to be popular - bit Chloe looked scared as she was cornered by the Greek twins Dino and Georgio

Let's forget it ever happened: Kirk and Jessica Wright discover that their lock and key work together - but pretend that it didn't to avoid any awkwardness

Both ended up at the singles' night which saw the girls get given a lock to wear round their necks while the boys had keys which they had to try out on different women.

Kirk unlocked Jessica Wright's lock but as Lauren walked past they said it was awkward and would act like it didn't work.

Maria and Mick ended up at the bar and found that their lock and key worked together and joked that this was when Mick should run and get his pre-nup, while Joey tried a number of unsuccessful chat up lines on a couple of women, including 'what's your favourite fruit?', and 'what's your favourite animal?'

Better luck next time, Joey! The tanned one tries chatting up a second lady who is as unimpressed as the last one

It seemed that most of the TOWIE gang were there including Billie and Sam Faiers, Chloe Sim, Frankie Essex and Lauren Goodger.

Mark Wright had given it a miss, and, as Mail Online reported earlier this week, was seen at home alone with a pizza and DVD for company.

Date crasher: A lonely Mark ends up joining Arg and Lydia during their romantic dinner

He then left his flat and got into his car as he left a message for someone, saying he was 'feeling lonely' and 'I want to come and see you'. Viewers then saw Lauren check her phone in the club.

But Mark ends up at Alec's where he crashes Arg and Lydia's romantic dinner but his best friend asks him to pull up a chair and Mark starts moaning about being lonely.

But as Arg sticks up for him, Lydia calmly puts him in his place and tells Mark: 'You've got to understand that Lauren's put up with a lot of crap over the past year and is entitled to move on.'

Taking sides: Lydia stayed calm as she told Mark that he should understand why Lauren is getting over him after 'all the crap' she has put up with from him
