For about a week now Facebook and Twitter have both been overrun with selfies of girls wearing no makeup. At first we were all a little confused, but things got increasingly clearer when we realised that the photos were part of what became a viral campaign to raise money for Cancer Research UK. No one is quite sure how the #nomakeupselfie trend started, although it has incredibly raised £8 million (over $13m) so far.

The December 20 episode will feature an exciting guest appearance.
Cheryl Cole has joined the cast of Coronation Street for a very special one-off episode. The cameo is part of ITV’s Text Santa episode of the soap. Cole is set to play a childhood friend of Coronation’s Tina McIntyre, who drops by for a holiday visit to cheer up her pal. 30-year-old Cheryl visits Tina at the Rovers Return, hoping to lure her back to Newcastle for her mum's Christmas party. As usual, crazy and unpredictable antics ensue. Chezza herself is excited about the cameo in the beloved soap, which has become a TV institution in its five decades on air.
The glamazon has toned down her look in the episode.
"It has always been part of my life, we'd all watch it as kids every night,” Cole said for the Daily Mirror. "It's surreal to be part of something I've watched my whole life."

The corrie star is leaving after six years
The soap star Michelle Keegan is leaving Coronation Street for pastures new, but will remain on the show for a while, and will not make her final departure until Spring 2014.
“I have had the most amazing six years at Coronation Street and it was such a difficult decision to leave,’ Keegan said. ’But I felt it was the right time for me to make the next step in my career.” We’re not really sure what these new pastures are, or if she even has any, so leaving her character on Corrie could be a bit of a risk. She’s popular amongst the fans, though, so we’re sure she’ll land something big. “I will miss Tina and will always be grateful to ITV and Coronation Street for giving me such an amazing role to play for my first ever acting job,’ she added. “Most of all I will miss the amazing people who work on the show, my acting colleagues, cast, crew, producers and writing team. I have met people who I know will be friends for life.”
Tina has had to face some pretty troubling things on the soap, most notably an abortion, the death of her father and a romance with Tommy Duckworth, played by Chris Fountain. “I am very excited about what the coming months hold for Tina and what the future has in store for me,” she explained.

Eastenders actor David Witts wasn’t too happy when his name was read out at Monday’s Inside Soap Awards. Though the actor would no doubt have been thrilled with one of the major acting prizes, he picked up the trophy for ‘Sexiest Male’, which left him a little anxious and a tad confused, reports the Press Association.
Speaking after collecting his prize at London’s One Marylebone, the Albert Square newcomer – who plays Joey Branning – said, “I think there's going to be a lot of mickey-taking and general jibes like that. I don't think anyone's going to take it particularly seriously or start treating me any differently, they're just going to be mocking me for it and winding me up.” So, did Witts think he was a worthy winner? Well, it seems not. The actor said, “I think it's utterly ridiculous and I disagree with the decision entirely. In fact, I think there should be a re-vote because something's gone wrong - perhaps they saw who was last and flipped the list, something like that…But it's hilarious because I've never been considered sexy in my life - probably not even by my girlfriend!” Coronation Street’s Michelle Keegan picked up the Sexiest Female award for the fourth straight year and also questioned her suitability for the prize.
Overall, it was a successful evening for Witts’ co-stars, with Eastenders walking away with the majority of the major prizes.
Michelle Keegan really isn’t giving anybody else a chance, is she? The Coronation Street actress – who plays feisty barmaid Tina McIntyre – scooped the award for Sexiest Female at the Inside Soap Awards on Monday evening (September 24, 2012), for the fourth year in a row.
Though still the big favourite going into the show, the actress faced stiffer competition this year in the form of Eastenders star Jacqueline Jossa, Emmerdale’s Natalie Anderson and Rachel Shenton of Hollyoaks fame. However, she pipped them to the post and was presented with her seventh Sexiest Female Award (having scooped a further three at a separate soap awards show). Despite her string of wins, Michelle has maintained that most fans don’t fancy her, telling The Sun, “I'm genuinely not sexy. I think people vote for Tina. She doesn't wear tight clothes, she doesn't wear loads of make-up, she's quite plain, I think girls can relate to that…I think they find that she's so confident, a bit sexy.”
Michelle was also nominated for Best Actress and Best Dressed Soap Star at the awards show, winning the latter. In the end, it was Gillian Wright – who plays Jean Slater in Eastenders – walked away with Best Actress.
Michelle Keegan snapped up her seventh Sexiest Female soap star award at the Inside Soap Awards 2012 but still insists she’s anything but sexy.
The actress won the award after playing the outspoken Rovers Return barmaid Tina McIntyre on Coronation Street only months after winning the same award at the 2012 British Soap Awards for the fourth time. She also won the award for Best Dressed soap star which makes her the holder of 2 out of 3 of Corrie’s wins this year. Despite being TVs favourite eye candy, she previously told The Sun’s TV Biz, ‘I’m genuinely not sexy’ and insisted that people voted for Tina rather than herself because she wears little make-up and doesn’t wear tight clothes which Michelle thinks girls can relate to. ‘I think they find that she’s so confident, a bit sexy’, she said. ‘I haven’t changed since day one. I still go out in my pyjamas to Tesco, hair up, no make-up. I feel comfortable like that. If I were to go out in make-up and heels all the time, I’d just feel so uncomfortable. It’s just not me.’
This year she was up against sexy nominees Jacqueline Jossa who plays Lauren Branning in EastEnders, Natalie Anderson AKA Alicia Metcalfe from Emmerdale and Rachel Shenton who plays the wronged Mitzeee in Hollyoaks. Best Soap went to EastEnders who scooped up seven separate awards including Best Actress (Gillian Wright), Best Newcomer (Hetti Bywater) and Best Bitch (Charlie Brooks).
