Holly Willoughby, Lost iPhone 5, Madonna, 60 Watt Lightbulb – What’s Hot and What’s Trending 01 September 2011

01 Sep

Holly Willoughby – 30-year old mother of two Holly returned to work today just 5 months after giving birth to daughter Belle. She was starting a new series of Celebrity Juice and had tweeted to fans that she was feeling a little nervous about her first day back at work. General consensus was that she had nothing to worry about as she looked just great with no signs of her recent pregnancy and her usual stylish hair and make-up.

There was an animal theme to her outfit today as she carried an animal print Mulberry Alexa bag and matched it with a pair of pony print heels.

Holly is back on ITV this Monday for her usual This Morning spot with co-host Phillip Schofield.

iPhone 5 lost – in a strange re-run of last year’s loss of the iPhone 4 prototype, Apple seems to have lost the prototype of the new iPhone 5 in a Mexican bar in San Francisco this July. Even more strange are reports that the iPhone 5 may have been sold on Craig’s List for $200. It appears that Apple contacted the San Francisco Police Dept for their help in getting the phone back.

The iPhone 5 was apparently traced electronically to an apartment near the bar but despite police intervention the trail then appears to have gone cold.The bar owner has admitted to being contacted on numerous occasions about the lost iPhone but said that he had not seen the device.

It was only on recent weeks that a California court decided not to press charges against Gizmodo or its former editor for the site’s part in the lost Apple iPhone 4 prototype. Although Gizmodo escaped prosecution two Californian residents were not so lucky being charged with misappropriation of lost property.

Madonna – the singer’s new film is premiering today at the Venice Film Festival. The film “W.E.” is directed by Madonna and tells the story of Wallis Simpson the US divorcee behind the UK abdication crisis back in 1936. Madonna has said that the success of the film “The King’s Speech” will help her latest movie effort as they both look at the same period in history but from different viewpoints.

Madonna has said that she identifies with Mrs Simpson as fame reduces people to “a soundbite”. She has received help with the movie from both of her director ex-husbands Guy Ritchie and Sean Penn.

Madonna has sold over 300 million albums worldwide and was ranked by Billboard magazine back in 2008 as the most successful solo chart artist of all time.

Check out the trailer for the new movie “W.E.” below.

60 watt light bulbs – a strange one to hit our charts this. The EU has made it illegal to manufacture and import 60 watt light bulbs from today. Although businesses are able to sell shoppers all their remaining stock of the 60 watt bulbs once this is gone they will be forced to sell the new energy-saving light bulbs.

The old style bulbs are not considered energy-efficient anymore and are to be replaced by the new halogen and compact fluorescent CLF bulbs. Although the early versions of the CLF bulbs received some criticism for not being bright enough the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs says that this is no longer the case.

A health charity, Spectrum Alliance, claims that around 2 million Britons could be adversely affected by the new style bulbs as they say that they emit ultra violet rays which can cause migraines in some people. THe removal of the 60 watt bulb follows on from the earlier demise of the 100 watt and 75 watt bulbs.
