CORRIE CLOSED: Filming on the Coronation Street cobbles was suspended yesterday as the cast and crew come to terms with the death of Anne Kirkbride. Meanwhile tributes have been flowing for the star. William Roache who plays her long time husband/sparring partner Ken Barlow said “I feel Anne’s loss so personally having worked closely with her for over 40 years.” Liz Dawn who played Vera Duckworth also summed up the impact of her loss: “She was so well loved by the cast and crew and by the millions of viewers who watched it.”

RAMSAY LOSES A FIGHT FOR ONCE: A Judge has ruled Gordon Ramsay has to pay his rent, and the man demanding it; his father in law! DigitalSpy reports:

The celebrity chef purchased the York & Albany pub near Regent’s Park while his father-in-law Christopher Hutcheson worked with him to increase his restaurant businesses. However, Ramsay alleged that his signature had been forged on a document, making him the personal guarantor for the pub’s rent.

He also accused Hutcheson of using a ghostwriter machine to forge the signature. The machines are sometimes used by authors to sign items automatically.

Mr Justice Morgan refused to grant a declaration that the rental guarantee was not binding because Ramsay’s signature “was not lawfully authorised” when the 25-year lease was signed in 2007.

The judge said: “I find that when Mr Hutcheson committed Mr Ramsay to the guarantee in the lease of the premises, Mr Hutcheson was acting within the wide general authority conferred on him by Mr Ramsay at all times until Mr Hutcheson’s dismissal in October 2010.”

Talk about a kitchen nightmare! (drum crash)

‘JUSTIN’ TIME FOR A ROAST: The next recipient of a Comedy Central Roast has been announced. Justin Bieber is set to get a grilling some time later this year. Bieber tweeted to his fans after Ryan Seacrest announced the roast earlier on his own account:

“For years I have wanted Comedy Central to roast me. They said only if I provided them w/ more material so for a year now I have worked hard, Finally after all that hard work for my 21st bday it’s happening. Thanks @RyanSeacrest & @ComedyCentral for the announcement. Let’s do it 🙂 Lol. #BieberRoast.”

I feel I’m not the only one who won’t be satisfied unless there is tears, lots of tears.

KARDASHIANS SUPPORT BRUCE: With rumours circulating of an imminent gender re-assignment operation, Bruce Jenner has posed with his daughters for a photo on Instagram, posted by Khloe. Whether the rumours are true or not (so far they are unfounded), it seems he can rely on the support of his family:
