» Keith Chegwin let it all hang out in 2000 when he stripped off to present Naked Jungle on Channel 5.
» The first Beatles recording session took place at Abbey Road in 1962. They were paid the sum of £7.10 for their efforts.
» Dee C Lee, former Style Council member and Wham! backing singer, is 42 today. Bet she thought she'd never see the day.
