Showbiz roundup: Emilia Clarke almost broke a leg

She told the BBC’s Radio 1 Breakfast Show with NICK GRIMSHAW that she had a nickname for the crutches.

“They’re called Bill and Ben, I’ve got a stress fracture on my hip,” she said. “I want to say it’s for doing Parkour or something. But I just slipped. It’s really boring.”

DAVID and BROOKLYN BECKHAM donned matching flat caps as they headed out on a fishing trip in Dorset. The former footballer enjoyed some bonding time with his eldest child as they joined local fishermen to catch lobster and crab in Weymouth.

David captioned a picture of himself and Brooklyn on a boat in their coordinated hats: “Bonding time with your kids is always so special... Dad and Brooklyn fishing outing.” His 16-year-old son also shared a picture, writing: “Fishing with dad.” By the time they arrived back at the harbour, news had got out that they were in town, and a large crowd gathered, mobbing the pair for selfies and autographs.

ONE DIRECTION have ’scent’ their fans into a frenzy, after unveiling a teaser for their new fragrance.

The ad shows how the boyband – NIALL HORAN, LIAM PAYNE, HARRY STYLES and LOUIS TOMLINSON — sourced the ingredients for their fourth perfume, Between Us, which includes mountain freesia, amber, apricot and, they joked in the teaser, Niall’s tears.

The 96-second clip sees the guys demonstrate their acting skills, and has already won the approval of One Directioners.

Between Us, which also includes notes of mandarin, jasmine, gardenia, patchouli and vanilla, will be available from July 20.

S CLUB 7 star RACHEL STEVENS has spoken out to defend bandmates HANNAH SPEARRITT and PAUL CATTERMOLE’s reconciliation.

‘Reach For The Stars’ singers Hannah and Paul dated during the band’s heyday before splitting up in 2006. But it recently emerged Hannah, 34, had split from her personal trainer fiancé Adam Thomas and pictures were published this week of her kissing Paul, 38, on the Tube in London.

Rachel told the Daily Mirror: “Hannah and Paul are so close, and they always have been.

“They’ve always got on so well, and always had that relationship and when we came back on tour, that just came back straight away.

“They always really just got on with each other right from the start, but this time around, I didn’t really think about it to be honest.”

ZAYN MALIK is vying to become a style icon after getting a prestigious front row seat at VALENTINO’s show at Paris Men’s Fashion Week.

The former One Direction star was looking dapper in a buttoned-up crisp white shirt, contrasting-collared jacket, navy slacks and black lace-up shoes as he joined stars including JOE JONAS at the catwalk show.

Zayn, who has recently dyed his buzz-cut white, shared a picture of himself on Instagram with the caption “front row ready”.

But the 22-year-old singer almost had his smart look messed up as he was mobbed by fans wanting selfies on the way into the building.
