Adele opened up about her chronic back pain during a Las Vegas residency performance, telling her audience that she is suffering from sciatica. She joked that she had to "waddle" while firing T-shirts into the crowd. This isn’t the first time Adele has spoken about her back problems, she previously revealed that she slipped a disc aged 15, and her pain worsened after giving birth to her son, Angelo. We’re hoping she gets better soon!

Romeo and Juliet stars Leonard Whiting and Olivia Hussey are taking legal action against Paramount Pictures for a sex scene they didn’t agree to in the 1968 film. Speaking of the historic case, the pair’s business manager told Variety that Leonard and Olivia, who were 16 and 15 at the time, had no choice but to follow the directors’ instructions, despite being assured that there would be so much nudity. The suit seeks damages of up to $500 million.

Lewis Capaldi has shared a demo that will never be released on TikTok, joking that his label will go crazy if they found out he'd leaked it. Fans have been full of praise for the snippet of the single, with a couple even suggesting that it was better than his single She Brings Me Coffee. Lewis later joked that he loves it when people prefer demos that he has no intention of releasing to his real releases. Maybe it's worth releasing this one too, Lewis!

Ed Sheehan took second and third place with his two songs, Bad Habits and Peru, while Cat Burns came forth with 'Go'. Unsurprisingly, Kate Bush also made the top 10 list with Running Up That Hill, which landed in sixth place.
