Labrinth and Zendaya, who stars in the leading role in the Emmy Award-winning show, performed All For Us and I'm Tired. The star then took to Instagram to state that she had a magical, beautiful night and thanked Labrinth for the 'last-minute invitation' and the 'gorgeous crowd' for their reaction.

Meghan Markle has responded to claims made about the reasons behind her absence from the upcoming Coronation of King Charles III. An article in the Daily Telegraph said one of the reasons that the Duchess of Sussex will not be attending the event was due to her feeling "unsatisfied" by the King's response when she raised issues of unconscious bias within the royal family. 

However, a spokesperson for the Duchess of Sussex told HELLO! that Meghan is "going about her life in the present, not thinking about correspondence from two years ago related to conversations from four years ago," and that "any suggestion otherwise is false and frankly ridiculous". Meghan won't be joining her husband Prince Harry at the event held in London next month but instead will remain at home in Montecito where she will celebrate Prince Archie's fourth birthday.

The Jonas Brothers, Lewis Capaldi, and more are set to headline this year's Capital Summertime Ball with Barclaycard. Announcing the news live on air, Roman Kemp and co. shared the exciting line-up will take to the stage at London's Wembley Stadium on the 11th June for an incredible feast of live music. Joining the pop trio and the Someone You Loved hitmaker will be Anne-Marie, Raye, Sigala, Jess Glynne and more. Tickets go on sale on Tuesday 25 April.
