Idol's Debut Single!
Pop Idol's Gareth Gates is to go head to head with George Michael with his
debut single. Both stars' much anticipated records will be released on
March 18. Michael's decision was a surprise to many as it was expected that
the former Wham! star might change the release date of his comeback single
'Freeek' to avoid clashing. However, his record label Polydor has
decided to stick with the planned schedule. Gareth's debut release will be a cover of the Righteous Brothers'
hit 'Unchained Melody'.
The end for
Eastender Steve Owen!
- As Steve Owen departs from the set of Eastenders forever, in a
nail biting car
chase, it is revealed that life expectancy on Albert Square is at least 30
years less than the average in the UK. On average, characters only make it to 45-years-old. However, the survey,
by Reader's Digest magazine, points out that they're better off than the
hapless characters of Channel 4's Brookside, who live to an average age of
just 24. That is 14 years younger than in Sierra Leone, the country with the worst
life expectancy in the world. On average, Britons make it to 77. Untimely
deaths on Eastenders include Tiffany under the wheels of Frank's car, Cindy
Beale in childbirth in prison and Ashley Cotton in a motorbike accident.
MANAGER'S BID!England's football manager is making a bid to break into the
music industry this week with the release of the 'Sven-Goran Erikson Classical Collection'
CD. The Swede hopes to attract his adopted nation's sympathies by showing a
taste for aged English composers such as Elgar, Delius and Purcell.
Although he failed to remember the words to 'God Save The Queen' in his
first match, fans must now be reconciled with the presence of patriotic
melodies such as 'Rule Britannia' and 'Jerusalem' on the CD.
The three CD set starts with four Elgar works including 'Nimrod' from the
Enigma variations and continues with

'The Dam Busters March' and
compositions from Coates, Holst and Handel. Anthony Anderson of Naxos music
said the tunes, "very much reflect the themes of Sven's football life."
The presence of 'The Dam Busters March' has however been questioned. Some
fear it could lead to tensions with opposition supporters if fans become
attached to the tune. FA Chief Executive Adam Crozier said, "I worry about
80,000 drunken idiots doing the Dambusters when Germany come over here.
We've got to cut it out."
Numbers are RISING!
- The number of sexually transmitted infections
(S.T.I.) detected in young people
is rising dramatically, recent statistics have shown. According to figures
from the Public Health Laboratory Service, S.T.I. figures have more than
