Although she hasn't been a regular on TV sets since she was booted from her seat on the judges panel of The X Factor USA, Cheryl Cole is reportedly finalizing a deal to host her own series with the BBC, and it could launch as early as this summer!
Her manager, will.i.am, has apparently been hard at work negotiation the terms with the UK network, and she'll most likely be taking home £750,000 per series!
We've just learned that Shirley MacLaine has joined the cast of Downton Abbey for its third season, which premieres on UK network ITV this fall! U.S. audiences will be able to check out the show on PBS' Masterpiece Classic in early 2013.
Shirley is set to star as Martha Levinson, the "mother of American-born Lady Grantham (Elizabeth McGovern)."
Here's what executive producer Gareth Neame had to say about Shirley joining the show in a statement:
We never thought Justin Bieber and TLC would ever go together, but we guess the network which airs Toddlers and Tiaras and Virgin Diaries seems like the perfect choice to air Justin Bieber's holiday special.
In case you missed out on the UK's This Is Justin Bieber, which aired on ITV, now's your chance, Americans, to see it on your teevees. The special has Justin singing acoustic versions from his Under the Mistletoe album, as well as some other hits.
Check out the preview above and watch the show next Wednesday Dec. 21 at 9 pm on TLC.
Singer Sinead O'Connor penned an angry note on Facebook indicating that she had taken "an overdose," prompting fears across Ireland and the music industry for her well-being before she was found safe and sound, and given medical attention.
