Boyzone singer rules out reunion
Former Boyzone singer Keith Duffy has ruled out a reunion of the boy band unless all members are involved - including Ronan Keating.

Duffy, who now stars in Coronation Street, said he had the time of his life with the Irish band, who had hits with You Needed Me and Father and Son.

"If I was going to get back with Boyzone I'd like to do it with the four guys I toured with for eight years.

"It wouldn't be the same without each individual member," he said.

Torn's lawyer, Adam Levy, said his client had one-and-a half-drinks the night of his arrest last January, after his car struck a taxi.

Police officer Vanessa McBride testified that Torn, 73, appeared "dishevelled" and "smelled of alcohol" when she arrested him.


Morrissey urges US to oust Bush

Singer Morrissey has urged people to vote against George W Bush in the forthcoming US presidential election.

The star - who lives in Los Angeles - said the president had turned the US into the most "neurotic and terror- obsessed country on the planet".

The former Smiths frontman said in a statement: "With all my heart I urge people to vote against George Bush.

"John Kerry is the logical and sane move. Please bring sanity and intelligence back to the US."


P Diddy steps up US vote campaign

Hip-hop mogul P Diddy has criticised the US presidential campaigners for a "failure" to address inner-city issues.

"If you look at the campaign schedules, they're not making time for these people," he said.

He was in the midst of a six-city tour aimed at empowering minorities and young people to vote on 2 November.
