We've kept our eye out for all the biggest rumours of the day and served up all the juicy gossip right here...

1. Christopher Maloney signs record deal!

Christopher Maloney has signed a record deal!

Yes we really just had to write that sentence...

The former X Factor singer told the Liverpool Echo that he would release his debut album with independent label Tristar Records.

He said, "I wanted full control over what I was doing and full creativity and I wanted a label that will look after me. I didn't want to go somewhere with big artists where I would be put on the sideline.

"If I signed with another record company, it would have been a lot longer process and my fans are waiting for my album now."

He claimed that the record will be "different to what people will expect" and be "similar to Will Young's sound when he first came out".

He added, "There's two people writing it at the moment and one producer.

"People are expecting an album full of covers but that's not what I'm going to do. There may be one or two covers but it'll be mostly new stuff."

Hmmm, at least it's not all going to be covers...

2. Broadchurch creator talks series two!

Broadchurch creator Chris Chibnall has revealed that series two will tell "a very different type of story".

ITV confirmed that the hit detective drama will return for a second run, though cast details are yet to be confirmed.

Speaking to Daybreak, Chris said, "I have a plan. I'm keeping it to myself for a while, but we know what we're going to do.

"It's going to be a very different type of story and hopefully it will be just as compelling and bold and I'm really looking forward to doing it. It will take us a little while, but hopefully it will be something that lives up to the first one."

The writer refused to reveal any plot or character details but we know it will start shooting in 2014.

He said, "We've kept our secrets so deliberately on the first one and it's worked well, so... we'll keep the secrets for a bit longer on the second one."

Such a tease!

3. Cheryl Cole embarrassed herself in front of Beyoncé!

Cheryl Cole has admitted that when she met Beyonce Knowles she might have made a bit of a fool of herself.

Recalling the time she met the Crazy In Love singer backstage at The X Factor, Cheryl said, "I love how Beyoncé is empowering as a woman.

"She's positive and she's about sisterhood and that's quite rare these days I think. I always looked up to her, in Destiny's Child she was my favourite.

Speaking to MSn, the singer added, "I haven't seen her since, but that's okay - that one time was enough for me. I totally embarrassed myself – I'm sure she doesn't want to see me again."

We bet Bey didn't notice a thing!
