celebrity: March 2012 Archives


Uninvited guests are not normally welcome at weddings, but John and Frances Canning decided to make an exception when one turned up on their big day… because it was the Queen.

The royal wedding-chasher -- who had been attending a Diamond Jubilee event with the Lord Mayor at Manchester Town Hall -- decided to pop in and see the wedding which was taking place in the same venue.

When John and Frances had booked the venue, they didn't know the Royals (Prince Phillip was there too) would be there, but when they found out they wrote a letter to Buckingham Palace.

However, after the lady in waiting replied thanking him for the invitation and saying that unfortunately the Queen would not be able to attend, they didn't expect to see her.


Everyone has seen news footage using the White House as a backdrop -- it's always the same, a reporter stood talking in front of the 'static' garden and building.


Or at least it normally is, but Spanish-language station Univision recently offered something different… when Barack Obama's dog Bo video-bombed a live report.

Reporter Adriana Arevalo had been talking to the camera when Bo -- the resident White House dog -- darted across the lawn behind her.

We don't know what Arevalo was saying in her report, but we do know it was made considerably more interesting (and cute) by the appearance of the Portuguese Water Dog.

Well it looks like we were wrong, because BBC News presenter Simon McCoy was recently seen by millions of viewers apparently asleep on his desk.

Viewers watching BBC breakfast saw the 50-year-old resting his head on his arms and slumped over his desk moments before he was due to deliver a bulletin.

It's not the first time McCoy has 'accidentally' amused viewers, he's previously been seen banging his desk during a piece on stock market news and performing push-ups.
