Matt Scudder gave up his high-flying job with the NYPD after accidentally shooting dead a civilian while chasing away a group of criminals trying to rob the bar he was drinking in. Now working as an unlicensed private detective, this recovering alcoholic is enlisted by a man who wants Matt to find the kidnappers who took his ransom and murdered his wife.

He may be used to taking down some pretty ruthless criminals, but he's never faced anything like this before and is constantly feeling as though he is one step behind his opposition.

Kelly Ripa has admitted to getting Botox in her face and armpits, claiming it makes her makeup artist's life easier. The American talk show host - named by the Hollywood Reporter as one of the most powerful people in the media for 2012 - revealed to Elle magazine that she gets Botox every seven months or so.

Later, in the interview with Ripa, the TV star revealed, "It's the Botox. Every seven months or so my eyelid skin rests on my eyelashes. So I feel like it makes my makeup artist's life easier, and it makes my eyes look a little more open on TV, which is where I happen to work right now." The miniscule TV host even opened up about her impressive 16-year marriage to Latin heartthrob Mark Consuelos, saying, "I actually call [Mark] Desi, because the thing about Desi was that as much attention as Lucy got, Desi was always in charge."
The couple live in New York's Soho neighbourhood with their three children, Michael, 15, Lola, 11, and Joaquin, 9.
