Niall Horan has spoken out to support his friend Lewis Capaldi after he announced that he would be pulling out of his tour. The One Direction band member is close friends with the Someone You Loved singer, and told The Sun that he was glad that he is taking the time he needs, and that so many people were behind him showing him their support at Glastonbury. During Lewis' set at the festival, he struggled to finish his performance due to Tourette syndrome, leading the crowd to finish his final song for him.

Kim Cattrall has opened up about what it took for her to return as Samantha Jones on And Just Like That, after previously claiming that she would never return to the popular franchise. The actress revealed that HBO bosses called her to ask what it would take for her to return, and she requested bringing back her favourite costume designer, Pat Field. Kim recently had a public fallout with her co-star, Sarah Jessica Parker, and will be filming her cameo appearance separately from her castmates.
