Denise Van Outen - Research released today from a poll of over 2000 women has revealed that almost 90% of women agree that silky smooth legs and a pair of high heels are amongst the small things that can make the biggest difference to their confidence. One in five British women surveyed said they felt their confidence plummet after realising they had forgotten to de-fuzz their legs, while one in four agreed they felt more confident when wearing a pair of heels. And now, thanks to Philips Beauty UK, women can have both. On the back of the findings, Philips partnered with the inspirational shoe designer, Lucy Choi, niece of the legendary Jimmy Choo, to design and create 30 pairs of limited edition Lumea Heels - the perfect pair of stilettos, inspired by real women to help show off fantastic silky smooth legs and boost confidence. In order to design the exclusive Lumea Heels, Philips Lumea asked women on Facebook and Twitter a series of questions about what their perfect shoe would look like, including heel height, style, fabric and colour. The results inspired Lucy Choi's limited edition design and women can only get their hands on a pair by entering competitions on Facebook and Twitter, due to be launched in the coming weeks. "Philips Lumea IPL hair removal provides women with silky-smooth, hair-free results for longer so they can feel great about their legs, which is why we felt it was a natural fit to partner with Lucy Choi, whose elegant shoes have been boosting women's confidence since her launch in 2011," said Deneice Harwin, Philips spokesperson. "We wanted to involve women in the design process to enable us to create the ultimate pair of Lumea Heels to complement women's legs so they can stand tall and step out with confidence." Launching the campaign, Denise van Outen, a busy working mum, who is often in the public eye, commented, "I often try to juggle too much and as a consequence, beauty maintenance can occasionally slip off my list.

Danny Dyer has made no secret of the fact he's made bad movies - though Assassin could turn out to be one of his better efforts.
Danny Dyer has teamed up with noted action movie producers Jonathan Sothcott and J.K Amalou for the hitman thriller Assassin. Sothcott - a ridiculously prolific producer of action flicks - recently worked with Dyer on Vendetta, though there appears to be a heightened buzz surrounding their latest effort.
Described as a "glossy action film", the movie will see Dyer play a professional contract killer who compromises himself when he realizes that his latest victim is the estranged father of the girl he has fallen in love with, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
"JK [Amalou] has written a brilliantly slick script and I cannot wait to start work with him, he's a force of nature of a filmmaker," producer Sothcott said. "I look forward to continuing building the new Danny Dyer brand with Assassin and Vendetta." Shooting on the movie is scheduled to begin in August with the filmmakers aiming to have a promo ready for the American Film Market in the fall.

Danny Dyer's Latest Movie 'Run For Your Wife' Has Taken Just £605 At The Box Office
Poor old Danny Dyer. Actually, let's not pity him - he was one the one who signed up for Run For Your Wife, a comedy also starring Girls Aloud singer Sarah Harding and presenter Denise Van Outen. The movie scored a collective 0% rating on the reviews aggregating website Rotten Tomatoes, with Peter Bradshaw of The Guardian damningly writing "The trouser-dropping 80s stage farce finally hits the big screen with Danny Dyer, to kill off any remaining British self-respect." Oh dear.
The movie has scored rather dismal box-office return of just £602 from nine cinemas, delivering an average of £67, plus previews of £320, according to The Guardian. Dyer can probably take a crumb of comfort in the fact that many of the sites only screened the film on Sundays, and the movie will play it at least a further 65 cinemas this week though mainly in late morning and afternoon slots. The movie - which features numerous high profile stars including Judi Dench who agreed to donate their fees to a theatre charity - follows the story of a London cab driver, played by Dyer, who has two wives, two lives and precise schedule for juggling both. One of his loves resides in Streatham, while another is settled in Wimbledon. The weird trailer was a foreboding sign, featuring Denise Van Outen singing a theme song while Danny Dyer falls out of windows and hits himself in the face with garden rakes. Oh, and Neil Morrissey turns up, for a bit.

British farces work on stage, but usually feel agonisingly stupid on screen. And this is a worst-case scenario, as playwright Cooney adapts his classic 1983 farce without even the slightest adjustment for the cinema. Everything is played as broadly as possible, with luridly coloured sets and actors performing to the top balcony rather than cameras that are right in their faces. So even if it's energetic and sometimes amusingly silly, it's painful to sit through.
Everything centres around John Smith (Dyer), a cheeky cabbie who lives two idyllic lives. He lives with his wife Michelle (Van Outen) in South London and has a second wife Stephanie (Harding) north of the river, juggling them with his shift-work. One day he's injured while rescuing a bag lady (Dench) from two thugs, and he ends up in the hospital. When he doesn't come home on time, Michelle calls the South London police and meets a detective (Cartwright). But Stephanie also calls a cop (Le Prevost), and the two officers are about to rumble John's whole set-up. So he asks his chucklehead neighbour (Morrissey) for help.
As a farce, the story is full of possibility for slapstick hilarity and more telling social comedy. But Cooney never taps into any of this, instead creating a hectic movie that never pauses to catch its breath. Dialog is shouted at full pitch, which bulldozes any potential for clever wit. And most of the actors are goaded into giving smirking performances that make the characters deeply unlikeable. Everyone goes on about what a nice guy John is, but Dyer plays him as a panicky liar who cares about nothing but his own skin. And both Van Outen and Harding over-react so ludicrously to everything that we can't understand how John can bear to be around them.

The London premiere for the upcoming movie 'Run For Your Wife' was a particularly British affair last night (February 5th 2013). Making their appearances on the red carpet were a number of Brit reality stars, TV presenters and actors both young and old preparing for their first viewing of Ray Cooney's stunning new comedy.
Louis Smith was last night crowned this years Strictly Come Dancing champion, wowing both the audiences and the judges with his light feet to take home this years glitter ball trophy.
The 23-year-old Olympic silver medalist beat off competition from actress Dani Harmer, TV presenter Denise Van Outen and Girls Aloud star Kimberley Walsh in the much vied for final, making him the show's 10th victor. An overwhelmed, but still slightly jovial, Louis said after he was awarded this years title, "I can finally say I won something in the year 2012!"
With his fleet-footed rendition of the Charleston, Louis swept off the injury problems that have plagued him throughout the competition as though they weren't there, to perform a near faultless dance routine with his partner Flavia Cacace. The Olympian sustained a number of injuries throughout the show's 14-week run, including problems with his back - which limited the number of lifts he could perform - as well as a knee problem that he said would require surgery now the show is over.
