Entertainment Tonight co-host Nancy O'Dell has been revealed as the woman at the center of a crude recording detailing how Donald Trump tried to seduce a married woman in 2005. Shocking audio was released by the Washington Post on Friday, which contained Trump bragging to Billy Bush (middle in 2005) about his attempts to seduce a woman in September 2005. 'I moved on her and I failed. I'll admit it. I did try and f*** her. She was married... I moved on her like a b***h, but I couldn't get there. And she was married,' Trump (right, with O'Dell) said while he was on an Access Hollywood set with Billy Bush. Access Hollywood now says Trump was talking about Entertainment Tonight co-host Nancy O'Dell (left with her husband, Keith Zubulevich). Trump, who has consistently come under fire for derogatory comments about women during his campaign, did not deny the exchange had taken place and put it down to 'locker room banter'. Trump apologized for the words he said in 2005 in a video statement shortly after midnight on Saturday. 'I've never said I'm a perfect person, nor pretended to be someone I'm not. I've said and done things I regret, and the words released today on this more than a decade-old video are one of them,' the Republican nominee said in the statement.
'I've never said I'm a perfect person': Trump APOLOGIZES for crude recording where he is heard boasting that his celebrity status allows him to do 'anything' to women - but can't resist attacking Clinton
Donald Trump has apologized for the words he said in 2005 that were released on Friday, where he bragged about trying to seduce Nancy O'Dell (bottom) and bragged about being able to do 'anything' to women. The short video statement (top) was released by Trump just after midnight on Saturday. 'I've never said I'm a perfect person, nor pretended to be someone I'm not. I've said and done things I regret, and the words released today on this more than a decade-old video are one of them,' the Republican nominee said in the statement. Trump then called the controversy a 'distraction', before pivoting into an attack on Hillary and Bill Clinton. The Washington Post released footage of Trump in 2005 speaking with Billy Bush (inset). The Republican nominee was heard bragging about how his celebrity status allows him to do 'anything' to women. 'And when you're a star they let you do it. You can do anything. Grab them by the p---y. You can do anything.' The comments were made on an Access Hollywood set in 2005.

'You can do anything. Grab them by the p***y': Donald Trump recorded in lewd hot mic chat with TV host and George Bush's cousin Billy in 2005 - boasting about how his celebrity status allows him to grope and kiss women
A new video captures newlywed Donald Trump bragging about his attempts to seduce a married woman and boasting about how being a 'star' means he can get away with 'anything' when trying to bed a woman. The recording, obtained by the Washington Post, was made on an Access Hollywood set in 2005 and captures Trump (bottom right), newly married to Melania, discussing women with host Billy Bush (top right). The shocking outburst captures Trump detailing his pursuit of an unidentified married woman. 'I moved on her and I failed. I'll admit it. I did try and f--- her. She was married', he says on the recording made off-set as the pair waited on a bus. Trump and Bush also commented on the appearance of Arianne Zucker (all three, left) in the audio. The comments have quickly been condemned, with Hillary Clinton tweeting: 'This is horrific. We cannot allow this man to become president.' Meghan McCain, the daughter of former Republican candidate John McCain, also commented on the recording, saying: 'This godforsaken election. This vile excuse for a nominee. I cannot find the humor in any of this.' Billy Bush is the nephew of former president George H.W. Bush, and first cousins with George W. and Jeb Bush.
The start of his October surprise? Wikileaks releases transcripts of Hillary Clinton's closed-doors Wall Street speeches - in which she admits being 'kind of far removed' from the middle class
Wikileaks on Friday published emails from campaign chairman John Podesta. One of them, sent by campaign research director Tony Carrk in January this year, points out 'flags' in Hillary Clinton's paid speeches. In his email , Clarrk warns his team that they should 'give an extra scrub' to a lot of the policy positions expressed in Clinton's speech. Clinton's campaign wouldn't confirm whether the emails published by Wikileaks (whose editor Julian Assange is pictured left) were authentic. But spokesman Glen Caplin said administration officials have 'removed any reasonable doubt that the Kremlin has weaponized Wikileaks to meddle in our election and benefit Donald Trump's candidacy'.
Clinton campaign attacks Trump's friendliness towards Russia after US government accused country of election related hacking attacks
Hillary Clinton's campaign attacked Donald's Trump's friendliness towards Russia on Friday after the US government formally accused the country of recent cyber attacks related to the election. The Department of Homeland Security and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence announced in a joint statement that they were confident Russia's 'senior-most officials' ordered the attacks and seemingly accused Vladimir Putin (left) of interference in the American political system. It is impossible for such an explosive charge to have been made without authorization from President Obama. On Friday evening, the Clinton (right) camp tweeted: 'It should concern every American that Russia is willing to engage in such hostile acts in order to help Donald Trump (center) become president.' In addition, a statement from John Podesta, Clinton's campaign chair, questioned why Trump 'continues to make apologies for the Russians.'

Lock up your grannies! Extraordinary concert unites the Stones, The Who, Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney and Neil Young (total age 651). So who's deaf, who's arthritic - and who wears a wig?
Struggling with ailments from deafness to arthritis, with 42 children between them and various bubbling feuds, there will surely never have been a show quite like this. The Rolling Stones, Sir Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, The Who, Neil Young and Roger Waters will all be performing on the same stage this weekend - at the Empire Polo Club in Indio Valley, California. Ticket sales for the so-called Desert Trip festival have been encouraged with talk of seeing, in the words of The Who's Roger Daltrey, 'the greatest remains of an era' for one final time. Each act - all together, they have a combined age of 724 - will play a full set, after sundown, and each is said to be netting around £5.5million and rising for taking part in the three-day event. ALISON BOSHOFF has the extraordinary story of the rock dinosaurs of the desert.
The Clooneys add a posh new pad in Manhattan to their $175m property portfolio... because a $11m LA love nest, $29m English mansion and a $93m Italian idyll just weren't enough!
The glass-clad tower, set on one of New York's richest streets, is as imposing as it is exclusive. And it's here that George and Amal Clooney have just bought the latest addition to their burgeoning property empire, a four-bedroom, high-rise home worth an estimated eyewatering $40 million. Although for Clooney, whose recent films include the appositely entitled Money Monster and who commands about $27 million per movie, this is not quite so eyewatering. Despite Amal's grandstanding as a champion of the downtrodden in her work as a human rights lawyer, it's the latest evidence that she's also rather fond of the finer things in life. The Clooneys' latest acquisition, which will not be completed until next spring, takes their property portfolio to four, at an estimated worth of £175m. Not too shabby for a couple famed for their social conscience.

Derrick Rose (pictured left and right arriving to court on Thursday), 28, told Los Angeles court on Friday that a text sent by the woman on the morning of the 2013 alleged rape, which mentioned being horny, had led him to think she had consented.

He said on Friday she had sent Rose a text asking him for $269 to cover the price of a pink sex harness (inset, file picture) she had left at his house, as well as a cab ride.
Terrifying moment plane aborts landing in Prague and narrowly avoids crashing as its wheels graze the runway
A terrifying video of a Boeing aircraft aborting its landing was captured in Prague as the plane went up against some very strong cross winds while trying to land (top left). Videographer, Radko Nasinec, captured the cringe-worthy footage of the Boeing 737-430 (bottom left) narrowly avoiding a crash as its wheels grazed the runway. The video, which was shot at the Václav Havel Airport in Prague, Czech Republic, shows the airplane swaying back and forth and dipping to the right (top right) as it was attempting its first landing. The pilot was forced to pull up (bottom right) quickly because of the large gusts of wind that caused it to sway violently back and forth. The pilot then reascended and flew the plane back into the holding pattern in preparation for the second landing. During the second attempt to land, the plane once again swayed back and forth on its way down, but this time the pilot was able to make a safe landing.

Gavin MacCall, of Boulder, has built a training course for little Lylah in their backyard - complete with a zip line (center), a set of swings and two garden sheds to climb. He shared a video last week showing the little girl effortlessly moving through the obstacles. Her father can be heard giving a humorous running commentary inspired by NBC's American Ninja Warrior, where athletic participants try to finish an obstacle race. Lylah goes up a cargo climb (left0 and ends up on top of a garden shed. She finishes her race in two minutes and 23 seconds after a warped wall, like real-life contestants, and punches a buzzer before raising her fist victoriously (right).
What do a Nazi armband signed by US soldiers, a photo of Marilyn Monroe and Andy Warhol portraits have in common? They are among dozens of stolen 'artworks' LAPD detectives are trying to track down
An alien spear from Predator 2, a photo of Marilyn Monroe, Andy Warhol portraits and a Nazi armband signed by US soldiers are among dozens of stolen items the Los Angeles Police Department is working to track down. The LAPD's Art Theft detectives are assigned to specifically investigate thefts and burglaries when valuable pieces are the focus. In addition, the special group also investigates frauds, fakes and forgeries that involve artwork. They are the only full-time law enforcement unit in the country that is devoted to investigate art crimes. In an effort to find more long-lost pieces, the Art Theft Detail released a series of photos of the stolen items, that also include a guitar designed by rock legend Eddie Van Halen, the first Batman comic and a pair of nameless Oscar statuettes.
'How many times did you console me when I fell to pieces?' Grieving widower pens heart-wrenching letter to the hospital staff who cared for his dying wife after a fatal asthma attack
Laura Levis (pictured left and write on her wedding day), a writer and editor at the Harvard Magazine and Harvard Gazette, died last month aged 34 of a devastating asthma attack in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Her husband Peter DeMarco (pictured right and inset with Levis), also a writer in the Greater Boston area, still remembers the names of the doctors, nurses, social workers, respiratory specialists and members of the cleaning staff who cared for his wife of two years and their family. The hospital's staff, DeMarco wrote, made sure to explain procedures and answer the family's questions patiently. They 'didn't see a thing' when he smuggled in their cat Cola for a final goodbye. But most of all, DeMarco is thankful for the last hour he ever got to spend alone with Levis.
