I'm so excited about series seven of Strictly Come Dancing! I've been keeping my eye on all the rumours about possible contestants, and the BBC has confirmed there will be 16 couples. While we wait for the lineup to be officially revealed, take a look at who might be taking part and vote to let me know whether you want to see them on the show.
Alexa Chung had another evening out on the town last night, heading to Charlotte Ronson's party in New York to celebrate her clothing line with US store JC Penney. Charlotte's siblings showed up to do DJ sets and support their sister, with Mark and Samantha both hitting the decks and hanging out with friends like Mischa Barton at the party. Other famous guests included Sophia Bush, Olivia Thirlby, Hilary Duff, Zoe Kravitz, Sean Lennon and Mischa's The Beautiful Life costar Ashley Madekwe. What a star studded bash!

Here's your first look at the hotly anticipated movie Avatar, from Titanic director James Cameron. The sci-fi movie has been shot in 3D, and stars Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Sigourney Weaver and Michelle Rodriguez. I'm intrigued to see this movie because of its mix of live action and CGI — it follows a paraplegic ex-Marine who "finds himself thrust into hostilities on an alien planet filled with exotic life forms. As an Avatar, a human mind in an alien body, he finds himself torn between two worlds." I'd love to know what you think, so check out the clip below and tell me — will you see it or skip it?
Lily Allen spent her day off enjoying the cricket at The Oval, watching England play Australia in the final Ashes test match with a St George's flag painted on her cheek. She was busy tweeting pictures during the match and listening to Jonathan Agnew on her headphones, but she still found time for kisses with her new boyfriend. She didn't hold back on her views of our England players, tweeting: "Collingwood is dull. He'll probably still be batting when I'm back here at the Oval on Saturday, having scored no runs." She's certainly honest!
