'Spiritual' Diana documentary to air
A programme which claims to have contacted the spirit of Princess Diana is to be broadcast on TV next month.

The Spirit of Diana features video footage of sťances in Paris and London in which mediums claim to have made contact with Diana's spirit.

US programme makers Associated Television International say the documentary aims to investigate Diana's interest in spirituality.

It will be screened on satellite and cable television channel Living TV on 10 March.

Minogue sisters' dream dates

Dannii Minogue has revealed her ideal date - a threesome with David Beckham and Brad Pitt.

The singer told woman's magazine B that she and sister Kylie had a crush on the Manchester United footballer.

Minogue, 31, also said that actress Kate Winslet "needs to hit the gym" to improve her figure.

The Minogues were linked to singer Justin Timberlake following last week's Brit Awards, but Dannii said the sisters generally had different tastes in men.

Blur announce British dates

Blur have lined up their first UK shows for nearly three years.

The band - normally guaranteed to fill arena dates - are playing four nights at the intimate Astoria venue in London in May.

They will be the band's first British shows following the departure of guitarist and founder member Graham Coxon.

Tickets for the concerts featuring Coxon's stand-in Simon Tong - formerly of The Verve - go on sale on Friday.

No more talk for Donahue

Veteran talk show host Phil Donahue has been taken off air by US network MSNBC after six months of poor ratings.

His programme was averaging fewer than 500,000 viewers, compared with 2.7 million for rival Fox News Channel's The O'Reilly Factor.

Donahue, 67, has won nine Emmys for his syndicated programme, which was aired nationally from 1970 to 1996 - blazing a trail for the modern talk show.

MSNBC president Erik Sorenson said the network was proud of the programme and disappointed with its poor audiences.
