» Martino Lazzeri, who we briefly lusted over in Grange Hill, and later went off completely when he was in Hollyoaks, is 30 (30!) today.

» Jane Fucking McDonald clung on to the No.1 spot in the album chart for a second week.
» The very first Big Brother nominations were announced in 2000. Caroline and Sada were up for the chop.
» The unedited version of Prince's Sexy MF was banned by every radio station in the UK in 1992. As we now live in a world where Sara Cox can talk dirty to the nation's eight-year-olds before they've even had their Coco Pops, it's difficult to see what all the fuss was about.
