Richard Keys ADMITS there is 'an element of truth' in the stories saying he had an affair

Football presenter Richard Keys has finally admitted there is 'an element of truth' in the stories that he had an affair with a 27-year-old woman. It was said that Keys, who previously admitted behaving in a 'prehistoric way' towards women, cheated on his partner with lawyer Lucie Rose (shown right). His wife Julia (pictured together, left), who has thyroid cancer, announced they were to divorce - but 24 hours later insisted her husband had not committed adultery. Confronted at Heathrow as he fly back to the UK from the Middle East for talks with his wife, Keys, 59, revealed that parts of the claims were true. He had moved to the Middle East since leaving his job at Sky Sports in disgrace after making sexist remarks.

I forgive you, mum: Canoe son rebuilds relationship with mother Anne Darwin after she lied

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH MARK DARWIN: Mark Darwin and his younger brother Anthony stood with their mother Anne when they threw a wreath of red roses into the choppy waters off a windswept pier in County Durham in 2004. His father, John Darwin, had disappeared during a canoeing accident two years earlier and been declared dead. What Mark could not have known as he comforted his mother was that behind a wall dividing the house from the one next door stood the 'dead' man himself. No wonder Mark and Anthony swore they would have nothing more to do with their parents. Yet now, there has been a most unlikely reconciliation between Mark and Anne. Pictured: Mark and Anne Darwin in London last week (left); John and Anne with Mark and Anthony as schoolboys (centre); and Anne joins Mark, his wife Flick and their children Joe and Max on holiday in Spain (right).

The 17-year-old (pictured with twin Kyle left), from Penarth is alleged to have attacked his girlfriend Amelia Clarke (centre and right) at a New Year's party, something the hopeful has strenuously denied. As the first live show of the series got underway, host Dermot O'Leary simply said: 'Sadly, due to circumstances, Brooks Way will not be appearing this evening.' Detectives allowed Josh to walk free after Amelia refused to press charges. Known as 'Milly', it's thought she met Josh while they lived together in the Welsh town. Amelia, who now lives in New York, has posed dozens of pouting selfies and snaps from nights outs on social media.

Nigel Farage and 'ex-mistress' are dragged into Ukip leadership farce

The abuse is contained in a leaked email sent by Annabelle Fuller (left), who was once named in the European Parliament as Farage's mistress. She now works for Mike Hookem, the Ukip MEP accused of hitting party leadership favourite Steven Woolfe (right) last week in Strasbourg. Both Farage and Fuller vehemently deny any affair. Woolfe was one of the recipients of the 'utter bitch' email, sent as Diane James (centre) was standing for Ukip in the Eastleigh by-election in February 2013. In the message, dated a fortnight before James came within a whisker of claiming victory, Fuller said: 'I understand from the man who knows best we've been lumbered with an utter bitch who is Marta Mk 2.' 'Marta Mk 2' is a reference to former Ukip MEP Marta Andreasen, who enraged Farage by defecting to the Conservatives in 2013, calling him 'anti-women' and a 'Stalinist dictator'.

The dramatic untold twist of the abdication crisis and how Edward VIII tried to flee the

A new book, The King Who Had To Go: Edward VIII, Mrs Simpson And The Hidden Politics Of The Abdication Crisis, looks at the romance between the monarch and Wallis Simpson - and how Britain faced its biggest royal mess since 1688 when James II fled to France in the face of a parliamentary coup. It was December 1936 and since Edward had announced his plans to wed twice-married Wallis Simpson, the Government had blocked his every wish - including his plan to make a broadcast to the Empire 'to tell them that he intended to marry Mrs S but without announcing his abdication'. The book also details how Edward (pictured, alongside his personal plane), had confided the scheme to one of his few remaining friends, Winston Churchill, who immediately recognised its danger. Churchill, then a backbench MP in his 'wilderness years', supported the King in general, but saw that such a move would be disastrous.
