Tinchy StryderTinchy aka Stryder Man looked like he was enjoying his fame – well he has already got two number ones under his belt!  His album Catch 22 is dropping 17.08.09.

Rachel Christie being I D'edPoor Rachel ‘Miss England’ Christie had trouble getting in as security was extra tight at the door. Although she did not cause a fuss as one particular doorman who could easily be accused of having an attack of ‘I have a position of power and I am going make a point of it’ when he hounded her for ID “I’m just doing my job” he said. But really he needs to get a clue and fast as when Rachel won Miss London earlier this year the competition was actually held at Movida!!! Come on!
