Sandra Bullock granted restraining order against stalker


The Gravity actress, 52, and her lawyers were reportedly unaware that Joshua Corbett – who suffers from bipolar schizophrenia – had been released last month as they were under the impression he would not be out until later this year.

However on hearing the alarming news they rushed to court to put in their request.

 Sandra’s lawyers had previously been awarded a temporary restraining order against Corbett after it was revealed that when he was arrested, police found a disturbing entry from his notebook detailing his plans to assault the star sexually.
Police also found a number of firearms including assault rifles and machine guns at his home.

Back in 2014 the Oscar winner – who has two adopted children Louis, seven, and Laila, five – suffered a terrifying ordeal when she discovered Corbett inside her house. In an earlier hearing her panicked call to the police was played in court.

Sandra told the dispatcher: “I’m in my closet. I have a safe door. I’m locked in the closet right now.”

She then gives a description of the man and before explaining that she had got out of bed after hearing a noise.

“I thought it was a wind blowing. Then I saw the person,” she said.

Security footage showed Corbett outside her property in Los Angeles on each of the three days before his arrest.

Corbett is currently on probation and is being closely monitored.

Joan Collins stars in the very funny The Time Of Their Lives

 It is hard to imagine Dame Joan Collins looking anything other than impossibly glamorous. 
However, it seems she can have her off days too even if it is just for work purposes.

In her latest flick The Time Of Their Lives Dame Joan, 84, plays a dowdy actress living in a nursing home. 

And it seems her make-under was so convincing that she managed to pass by the noses of a couple of fans completely undetected. 

“We were shooting in a supermarket and I was looking among the lettuces. I heard someone say, ‘I hear Joan Collins is here,’ ” explains the age-defying Dame. 

“And they looked right at me and said; ‘Where is she?’ And then they said ‘I don’t know. I think she was over by the chocolates but she’s not there anymore,’ ” laughs Joan, who thankfully saw the funny side. 

Well, considering the circumstances, being unrecognisable really is a huge compliment. 

The Time Of Their Lives, which also stars Pauline Collins, is now available to download.

Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes have the odd on-screen tiff

Eamonn Holmes reveals eventful first date with Ruth Langsford

They are one of the hardest working couples on telly having regularly co-hosted This Morning for over a decade.
So it is no surprise that Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes have the odd on-screen tiff but she reassures us its nothing to worry about.

“Sometimes people say we argue on the telly but we don’t really,” says Ruth, 57, who celebrated seven years of marriage to Eamonn, also 57, a week ago.

“We’re not going to have a full scale row on TV. I find it strange people mention that, because disagreeing is what couples do. You don’t have to agree with all of the other person’s views. That’s boring.”

And while they might not always see eye-to-eye the pair – who have been together 22 years and have a son Jack, 15, – have at least got the basics right.

She adds: “Our core values are very similar and that’s what keeps us together.”

Their new show Eamonn & Ruth Do Dubai airs tonight on Channel 5 at 9pm.
