"I've always said that I wouldn't want to sell my wedding. We got an offer to do that but I just wanted to be a normal bride and groom, have the family and not be like a big showbiz thing.

"So when I saw that they were getting married on the same day it was like, 'brilliant, hopefully now we've got a chance to do this in a low-key way'."

Daniel Radcliffe has revealed that he has never been on the Harry Potter Studio Tour.

Speaking to Jonathan Ross, the actor, who played the title role in the Harry Potter films, said that he has never had the chance to visit the attraction.

"I was the blankest canvas my dance teacher had ever seen," he said. "He taught me to dance, I owe it all to him.

5 reasons we really need Chris Evans to bring back Tfi Friday

28 August 2014 10:42 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

You couldn't get much more '90s than Tfi Friday. Even if you watched an episode of Friends while wearing a fisherman's hat with Shed Seven playing 'Chasing Rainbows' at the same time in your living room, it still wouldn't be as '90s as Chris Evans stood at a bar, shouting "Wiiiiiilll" in between bursts of 'The Riverboat Song'.

So when Chris Evans revealed over the Bank Holiday that Channel 4 had approached him to revive the show to mark its 20th anniversary next year (it isn't actually 20 until 2016, but let's not quibble over small details), there were understandably a few groans from people who thought the rowdy entertainment show should be left in the decade of Cool Britannia, Hooch and Kula Shaker.

But we disagree, for the five following reasons:

1. Tfi was live. Tfi was unpredictable.

Well, it was normally live. It was until Shaun Ryder »

Justin Timberlake, Ryan Gosling and More Celebs Who Have Been Friends Since They Were Kids

3 August 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

If you're a Hollywood star, your childhood friends usually have a limited number of roles available to play. They can be a loyal sidekick, your crew's comical mascot, or maybe the personal assistant who will eventually take you down in a bloodless celebrity coup. But for a lucky few stars, the people they grew up with became celebrities themselves, with their own fans, their own love interests and their own trending topics. It must be a welcome surprise. After all, it's lonely at the top, but it's a little less lonely when your childhood friends are there, too. In honor »

The best of Tom Hanks: 9 great moments from Big to dancing for Bieber

9 July 2014 7:35 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Not only is Tom Hanks one of Hollywood's greatest actors, he's also a thoroughly nice chap to boot. The two-time Oscar winner has a few interesting hobbies, too, including collecting vintage typewriters and supporting Aston Villa.

Today marks Tom's 58th birthday, so to mark the occasion Digital Spy has compiled a selection of his best bits from movies and beyond...

1. Captain Phillips showed he's still at the top of his game...

Despite being a big-screen presence for more than 30 years, Tom still knows how to deliver a barnstorming leading man performance. The mid-'90s saw him on a hot streak that resulted in back-to-back Oscars for Philadelphia and Forrest Gump, but last year's Captain Phillips - in which he played a man caught up in a traumatising freighter hijack - saw him play a key part in one of the most emotional film endings in recent memory.

2. Big in the '80s. »
