9 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Cheryl Fernandez-Versini has picked her final six Girls, and the chosen ones jetted off to Nice for her Judges' Houses episode - where the 'Crazy Stupid Love' singer enlisted Tinie Tempah to pick her final three for the live shows. Oh, and they arrived in style:

Hope no-one gets seasick. Anyway, here's a rundown of all the photos you need to see before Judges' Houses this weekend...

Lola Saunders

We are loving the 'got papped on the beach' sass of Lola's shiny shot. Girl is ready for this.

Go on then, analyse Cheryl and Tinie's faces. How is Lola doing? Or has she just begun? Our favourite fact from her bio, anyway, is that she would like to make Cheryl cry. "I'm not going to lie, that would be great! That would be nice. For a good reason, not a bad reason. That would be a real sense of achievement. »

However, asked if it was strange being away from Jossa at the moment, Osborne replied: "It's more hard being here and spending ten days away from Teddy. I've not had that yet, so that's hard.

"But at the minute I'm getting a lovely massage, »

Severrrrrn! Sorry, we're a bit over-excited, because the very first Strictly Come Dancing live show is about to start. We've done the office sweepstake, we've slipped on our sequins and we've even gone for a bit of a spray tan, but we're not the ones who have to take to the floor to cha cha our way to victory.

That responsibility falls on the shoulders of 15 very brave (/stupid) celebrities, and the first batch will be hitting the floor tonight - Tonight - to attempt to impress the judges. But who'll soar and who'll fall as flat as their feet? We're about to find out, so join Digital Spy from 9pm as we bring you all the action from the ballroom...

21:59That's it for tonight though! Who are you loving and loathing at this early stage? Who do you think will triumph? And who are you still excited to see? »

Actor who appeared in films and musicals but was best known for his role as Jim Branning in EastEnders

When the actor John Bardon, who has died aged 75, took on the role of EastEnders' grumpy grandad Jim Branning, he succeeded in turning the figure of a lazy, selfish and bigoted Londoner into one of the BBC soap's most lovable characters. Jim was a regular in the Queen Vic pub, who had a weakness for gambling but married the fictional Albert Square's gossip and minder of morals, Dot Cotton, until ill-health saw her dispatch him to a care home.

The balding, crumple-faced actor, often seen wearing a cloth cap, first appeared in the serial in 1996, when Jim arrived in Walford for his daughter April's wedding. When she was jilted at the altar, his other daughter, Carol, and her boyfriend, Alan Jackson, got married in their place, but Jim stormed out »
