Amidst the horror that ensued when two men brutally hacked a British soldier to death in the London streets, four women’s unimaginably courageous actions stopped further murders.
Despite the fact that two men armed with knives had just murdered a soldier and dumped his body onto a London street on May 22, four women on the scene were not afraid of standing up to the terrorists and trying to stop the violence.
Four Women Bravely Confront London Terrorists
Three women rushed to the victim’s side, even as the two armed men — one of whom has been identified as Michael Adebolajo – loomed over his body. An eyewitness stated that he saw one of the women, who has not yet been named, actually approach the men and ask if she could go pray for the victim. “She is a very religious woman,” onlooker Joe Tallant said. “She saw everything and wanted to comfort the man. »

Review Simon Brew 8 May 2013 - 22:00
We're still going. Another revew of The Apprentice. More bad booze. All because a small number of you asked us for it.
"Will you be quiet, you silly shit?"
If you were in a position to potentially cause irritation to Donald Trump, would you? I've concluded that I would. I arrived at this decision having observed the American Lord Sugar knock-off's Twitter feed over a period of weeks. At first, I thought it was funny. Then, I realised he was serious. Not even in a clever, ironic way. This man actually believed the words that he was tapping into his gold-plated computer.
I've subsequently learned that few things annoy Donald Trump more than people saluting Anthony Baxter's excellent documentary, You've Been Trumped. This is a film that charts Trump's battle to build a golf course on an area of natural beauty in Scotland. »

Christine Bleakley is facing a 70 per cent pay cut on 'Dancing on Ice'. The TV presenter - who has hosted the ITV celebrity ice skating competition with Phillip Schofield since 2012 - will reportedly only be brought back for the new series of the show if she agrees to a lower salary after her three-year £4 million contract with ITV comes to an end this summer. The 34-year-old beauty signed a lucrative golden handcuffs deal with the channel in 2010 when she and Adrian Chiles defected from BBC to host 'Daybreak', but the duo were dropped from the breakfast show after »

ITV has allegedly lifted a ban that meant the BBC's The Voice could not be promoted on any of its shows.
The channel - whose own talent series Britain's Got Talent overlaps with the singing contest - reportedly eased rules so that stars of the BBC programme can now appear on ITV.
According to The Mirror, the change of heart was prompted by Saturday night's viewing figures which saw Britain's Got Talent triumph with 13 million viewers to The Voice's 7.7m, meaning they no longer see the rival show as a threat.
An ITV source said: "We don't fear them anymore. Bgt is the number one show on Saturday nights and that is the way we think it will stay.
"If The Voice judges want to come onto ITV they are welcome, we are confident we have won the war this time."

BBC to lead television coverage, with David Dimbleby - wearing a black tie - presenting a three-hour programme on BBC1
The world's media will converge on St Paul's Cathedral in central London next week as Lady Thatcher's funeral ceremony is beamed to millions of viewers at home and abroad.
The BBC hopes to revive its reputation as Britain's national broadcaster after a bruising year, with David Dimbleby anchoring the only live and uninterrupted coverage of the service on terrestrial television.
Dimbleby will front a three-hour programme on BBC1 from 9.15am as the funeral procession leaves the Palace of Westminster for St Paul's Cathedral. The BBC's master of ceremonies will wear a black tie for the occasion, it was confirmed on Friday, avoiding the controversy generated by Peter Sissons more than a decade ago when he announced the Queen Mother's death in a burgundy number.

Ant & Dec have revealed that they are in early talks about taking their hit ITV entertainment show Saturday Night Takeaway to the Us.
The duo's fortunes are currently booming in the UK with Takeaway's tenth series surging in the ratings and yet another victory at the National Television Awards.
The pairing also look likely to secure their first ever No.1 record with their '90s record 'Let's Get Ready To Rhumble' on course for the top spot this weekend after a comedy performance of the track on Takeaway.
Ant & Dec previously attempted to break America in 2009 when they launched the gameshow Wanna Bet? on ABC. However, the show was cancelled after six episodes due to poor ratings.
Speaking about a possible return to the Us with Takeaway, Dec told Daybreak: "There's murmurings and there's talk about [the Us] and obviously it's done so well here. There's only two left of the current run here, »
Ant & Dec have again said that they never expected 'Let's Get Ready To Rhumble' to return to the charts after last week's Saturday Night Takeaway performance.
The duo resurrected their '90s Pj & Duncan act for a rendition of the track and it has since topped the iTunes chart and been tipped to head the Official Singles Chart this weekend.
After watching back their performance and archive clips of them performing with Mr Motivator, Ant McPartlin told ITV's Daybreak: "It was just a joke. We were fans of The Big Reunion anyway, so we were going to do something with them at the end of the show.
"And then we realised that we didn't kind of have enough to fill what the End of the Show normally runs to.
"And we thought well, we could possibly dust off the »
The internet was awash with reports yesterday linking Academy Award-winning filmmaker Danny Boyle to the vacant director's chair on Bond 24, stemming from a report in The Sun which claimed that Boyle was in the frame because he'd been seen chatting with producer Barbara Broccoli back stage at the Empire Awards on Sunday night. So he must be a lock then, surely? Well, not at all actually, with Boyle distancing himself this morning from taking over the reigns of the long-running spy franchise during an interview on Daybreak:
"No [I won't be directing]. I love the Bond movies, I love watching them and the last one was amazing," said Boyle, whose latest film Trance hits UK cinemas tomorrow. "And when I was a kid, when I was a teenager, I read those books cover to cover, multiple times. So they’re really part of the fabric of my fabric but I’m not that kind of director. »

Christine Bleakley has reportedly fired her manager to help improve her TV career.
The Dancing on Ice co-host is said to have quit management company Avalon in order to sign up with James Grant, who also manages the likes of Phillip Schofield, Ant & Dec, Holly Willoughby and Davina McCall.
It is the second time that Bleakley has departed from her manager in three years, having previously fired John Noel in 2010 after leaving the BBC for ITV.
Bleakley's latest move is said to have been made in order to find more work, having only appeared on a number of shows since being axed from Daybreak, reports The Mirror.
"Since moving to ITV there is a feeling that she hasn't fulfilled her potential and could be doing more shows," a source said.
"Many of their biggest and best stars are on the books with James Grant and so Christine wants to join them. »
