Anna Williamson's Showbiz Peek at the Week: Katie Price, Golden Globes

By
You've got to hand it to Katie Price - she sure knows how to keep reinventing the wheel, or keep repeating the same tried and tested formula from yesteryear, but with a slight 'twist'.

Having split from her latest fiancé Leandro Penna only a few months ago, her search for love took yet another predictable turn this week, as it was confirmed by the blushing bride herself that she has indeed tied the knot for a third time during a holiday in the sunny climes of the Bahamas. The 'lucky' guy (this year) is 25-year-old part time-stripper Kieran Hayler, who proposed to his lady on Christmas Day.

Surrounded by an unusually small amount of Pricey entourage, the sudden beach wedding decision is said to be the result of a psychic medium's intervention. Suggesting to the new Mrs Hayler-to-be that she would meet and marry a man called 'Kevin' - hey, what's in a couple of letters, eh? - in 'Pricey-world' that is clearly all the proof you need to delve into the sanctity of marriage for yet another time.

Now I don't mean to sound like a total cynic, and I genuinely wish her and her new husband well. Of course I want it to be third time lucky for her, I just think it's so sad to bring yet another change of circumstances into her impressionable young family's lives. Katie is clearly seeking something she can perhaps never find, and her continual ever-changing circus of a life suggests this. I just hope for her and her kiddies' sake that becoming Mrs Hayler will finally bring her some stability and happiness.

Lecture over. Across the pond we went at the beginning of the week for the annual A-list celeb fest that never fails to serve up a glorious platter of glamour and gorgeousness - the Golden Globes.

One of the biggest dates in the calendar for the stars of the stage and screen, all were out in force showcasing their wares... and in Halle Berry's case, a little too much of the showcasing. Seriously, what was she 'ware-ing'? A bizarre cut-out frock that was a dead ringer for one of my nan's bedspreads did little for the usually immaculate stunner. She wasn't alone. Lucy Liu's frock-horror was also nicked straight off my aforementioned grandmother's toilet roll dolly. Who knew nonagenarian chic would be the fashion faux-pas of the 70th annual awards?

There were plenty of fashion A pluses though. Homeland star Claire Danes put breast-feeding her four-week-old son on hold for a few hours, and arrived in a beyond-flattering red Versace frock. Lady of the moment Anne Hathaway also scored a thumbs up, not just for her critically-acclaimed role as Fantine in Les Misérables, but for her simple yet elegant cream corseted number.

Flying the flag for the Brits, new mummy Adele was on hand, sans baby boy, to accept an award for her Skyfall ditty, and The Saturdays, continuing their crusade to break America, were drafted in to perform at one of the prestigious after-parties - you go, girls!

Celebrity Big Brother 2013 - Day 1: Spencer and Heidi

Celebrity Big Brother has been a little up and down this week, and no, I'm not talking about Speidi in their (lack of) basement bunk-up. But with strong ratings and the Channel 5 bosses clearly doing all they can to keep it that way by ensuring they do all they can to keep the only controversial contestants in a few more days, the remainder of the series should fair well for the network.

A fan of this series, I was thrilled to pop along to Elstree this week to join the debate on Big Brother's Bit on the Side, alongside newly-evicted housemate Sam Robertson and last series's super-flirt Danica Thrall. Chilling in the green room before the live show, it's safe to say I was definitely the gooseberry. As I sat in the corner munching my way through a bowl of Haribo, sipping a warm glass of Blue Nun and listening to the flirtatious banter sparking between the two sexy so and sos, I suddenly had my own taster of what being an actual housemate might be like... come on, where were the cameras, guys?

Dancing on Ice: Joe Pasquale and Vicky Ogden

Dancing on Ice also continued its decent start, with the second batch of celebs being flung around the ice rink by their overzealous partners. 'We've taken all the judges' comments on board', 'No, I've got the best partner ever' and 'my bum's never been more toned' - the usual love to hate cliches were all being churned out with emotional aplomb by Anthea and co.

They may have lost their star signing in Pammy Anderson, but I actually think this series is shaping up to be one of its best in years. The celebs seem to have had more training and, with the exception of Cheggers and Pasquale, can do some pretty impressive stuff already. However, I'm not writing the two 'funny men' off just yet... having suffered from too many boring contestants in the last series, entertainment is key to this series sorting itself out. 'Squeaky' Pasquale chatting about his cheese wire jock strap and Cheggers being... well... just Cheggers is exactly what this show needs to inject some cheesy humour into it.

That, and the now follically-abundant judge Jason Gardiner. During the infamous 'skate off', you'd be forgiven for misinterpreting his 'the only way is through the back door' comment for perhaps his weekend activities. Don't worry, he was simply sending TOWIE's Lauren Goodger on her way.

TV Titters

- EastEnders star Matt Lapinskas achieving the impossible and out-tanning tanorexic skate partner Bianne Delcourt.

- Comic Joe Pasquale sombrely pleading 'I really do want to be taken seriously', while sporting Ace Ventura-style clown hair.

- And Grant Bovey rocking up at wife Anthea Turner's training session to announce, 'We wanted to come here today to give Anthea a boost'. Good to hear the Cadbury's endorsement deal is still going strong.
