Congrats Jude Law – well, at least we think congratulations are in order? He has become a father for the fourth time. Jude’s former love interest Samantha Burke gave birth to a 5lb 12oz girl on Tuesday night. Samantha has named the baby Sophia and is thrilled with the arrival of her first child. Her publicist Eileen Koch told People magazine, “Samantha Burke is overwhelmed with joy at the arrival of her beautiful and healthy baby girl, Sophia.”

The Spice Girls are to play a one-off concert in South Africa – the big question is does anyone actually still want to see them? No wonder VB isn’t too keen. The group sparked rumours of a reunion last week when four former members – Mel B, Mel C, Geri Halliwell and Emma Bunton - had dinner together in London and it has now emerged they were discussing plans for a special show to launch the soccer World Cup next year. Mel B and her husband Stephen Belafonte have brokered the deal and are keen to press ahead with the plan – even though Victoria Beckham doesn’t want to take part. A source told Britain’s The Sun newspaper,Mel is determined to get the girls back together for the World Cup and wants them to plough ahead as a foursome if Victoria doesn’t want to take part.

Lily Allen has quit the music industry…or has she? Didn’t she say this before after her first album? Change the record Lily. She made the announcement on her new blog, It’s Not Alright, revealing she has no plans to release new songs or tour again. She wrote: “Just so you know, I have not renegotiated my record contract and have no plans to make another record. I do however remain a fan of new music, so this is not some selfish crusade. The days of me making money from recording music has been and gone as far as I’m concerned, so I don’t stand to profit from legislation. Except future purchases of previously recorded material.” If you want you can catch Lily in a London theatre production called ‘Reasons to be Pretty’, which follows a group of working-class people who are bored with their lives.
