Amanda Holden rushes to sister's bedside who is fighting for life after car crash

Debbie Holden, 44, is in a 'critical but stable' condition at a hospital in Cornwall. She was caught up in a horror car crash on Thursday morning, prompting her sister Amanda to dash down from London to be by her bedside. The talent show star, seen centre with her sister Debbie, held a bedside vigil alongside her diving instructor sibling. The two have reportedly become incredibly close in adulthood, after living through a strained relationship with their father Frank (pictured below right with daughters Amanda, left, and Debbie, right).

French President Francois Hollande has launched a furious attack on Britain's decision to leave the EU - saying it would have to 'pay' for the Brexit 'crisis'.

This Morning presenter Holly Willoughby angers her neighbours over plans to add a

On daytime television she exudes girl-next-door charm, but those actually living near Holly Willoughby (inset) appear to think she is the neighbour from hell. The TV presenter, 35, has angered her neighbours with 'flawed' building plans to put a two-storey extension on her £3million mansion (right). The Edwardian property (left) in an affluent London suburb already has five bedrooms, but Miss Willoughby and her husband, Dan Baldwin, (centre) now want two more. Their neighbours have objected fiercely to the proposal because the house is in a conservation area and the extension would 'compromise the character and appearance of the building'. But after it was rejected last month the couple have now submitted plans for a 'super' basement.

The Queen's pet corgi who starred in 007 Olympic opening ceremony sketch dies aged 13

The Queen has been left distraught following the death of one of her two surviving corgis. Thirteen-year-old Holly, who appeared in the celebrated James Bond sketch for the opening of the London Olympics in 2012 (inset), was put down at Balmoral last week. The Queen took the heartbreaking decision to summon a vet for the dog, which was suffering from illness and the effects of old age. On average, corgis age a little over six times faster than humans, making Holly the equivalent of 81, nine years younger than her royal mistress. It means that after more than seven decades of the continuous companionship of corgis, the Queen has only one left - Willow, also 13. Along with Willow, she is left with just two dorgis - corgi-dachshund crosses - Vulcan and Candy, in the grounds of Windsor Castle.

Isle of Wight brickie on benefits conned his way from a derelict cottage to a stately home

Lounging in the back of a limousine as it cruises the streets of New York, Bill and Ann Green cannot stifle their smug smirks as they enjoy the high life. And in the 15 years since the photograph (inset) of that scene was taken, the glitz of their lifestyle has never suffered, certified by a host of lavish homes - from a stud farm in Newmarket with thoroughbred horses, to a hall set in 113 acres of land, once billed as Scotland's most expensive private home and, most recently, the Grade II-listed property that former prime minister Anthony Eden once called home (pictured). Not bad going for a bricklayer from the Isle of Wight whose first rung on the property ladder was a £13,000 derelict cottage (top left). But Green would settle for even that now -because, when he wakes up this morning, he'll be in a prison cell. Last week, the 60-year-old was jailed for six years for fraud, finally bringing to an end a scam worthy of a Hollywood film script. (Picture from top left, his first property, the derelict cottage in the Isle of Wight he bought in 1985, family home with first wife on same Island in 1991, in 2001 he left his previous life for Chale House, in 2002 the couple lease a £240,00-a-year property in Newmarket, before changing their name for £2.2million Middleton Hall, near Edinburgh in 2004.

But she said: 'There is no victory here.' Not only did Danielle not receive a penny of her father's will, she was also ordered to pay her stepmother's £87,000 legal costs. In her first interview since the ruling, Elaine says it brings her little joy. 'The judge did the right thing,' she says, 'but there is no victory here. I just feel so sorry for Michael and what his daughter's done to his name. Calling him a philanderer and things was terrible. Awful.'

Footage (right) of Kifah pulling the then-30-day-old baby from the wreckage of her bombed home went around the world and reduced a veteran BBC presenter to tears. 'I carried her in my arms again and the night of the rescue came back to me,' Kifah told MailOnline after their reunion. But it was not without sorrow. Since their home was reduced to rubble, allegedly by Russian or Syrian warplanes, Wahida's parents were forced to move the baby girl (inset, in Idlib) and her brother Zakaria to a rough patch of farmland where they survive on even less than before.

Cuban jet Flight 455 mystery still leaves questions over CIA involvement 40 years on

Forty years ago today a Cuban passenger jet trundled down the runway at Grantley Adams International Airport in Barbados and took off, climbing into a blue Caribbean sky en route to Jamaica. Two bombs exploded 11 minutes later and all 73 people on the plane were killed. A memorial stands by the sea (pictured, left) overlooking the spot where Flight 455 came down. The DC-8 (similar to the one pictured, top right) was owned by Fidel Castro's regime and 47 of those on board were from Cuba. Cubans divers (bottom right) were sent down to look for the wreckage. But years later questions remain about whether the CIA was involved and there are hopes the thaw in US/Cuban relations will lead to the mystery finally being solved.
