Weather blog: Is the cold here to stay?

It's been bitterly cold but will winter continue this way? Laura tells us more in her weather blog.

"It’s been the coldest week of winter so far. Widespread frosts, temperatures down to -13.7C in Highland Scotland, the coldest we’ve had for nearly 2 years. Snowfall across northern areas of the UK causing travel chaos but also scenes of winter wonderlands. Another positive has been fantastic conditions for Scottish ski slopes with thousands flocking to take advantage of the conditions. However it’ll slowly turn milder and more settled over the weekend and into next week.

X Factor's Stevi and Andrea on the tour and love

It's all up in the air at the moment

– Stevi Ritchie on romance with Chloe-Jasmine

Stevi admitted fans will have to 'watch this space' with regards to his relationship with former X Factor co-star Chloe-Jasmine.

He said: “Me and Chloe-Jasmine are good friends, we’ve been seeing each other you know because we are good friends, we get on so well."

He also revealed Chloe-Jasmine narrowly escaped going BLIND during a recent accident.

"She’s a lovely girl and she’s done something to her eye at the moment so she had a bit of plastic in it and she had a bit of an eye patch on on Celebrity Big Brother’s Bit on the Side the other night," he added.

"I feel a bit sorry for her actually - she’s alright, but she could have gone blind but luckily the plastic is now out so we talk to each other quite regularly. She’s a lovely girl.”

Stevi and fellow X Factor finalist Andrea Faustini also revealed their excitement ahead of the show's eagerly-anticipated tour.

Andrea said: "I've come from a month of sofa, fridge and food so I'm ready for the tour! We start rehearsals next week and we're so excited."

Stevi added: "I can't wait to entertain the thousands of people who have paid to come along. We're going to put on a good show."

Prince Andrew denies sex allegations

I just wish to reiterate and to reaffirm the statements which have already been made on my behalf by Buckingham Palace.

– Prince Andrew

The Duke of York has spoken out publicly for the first time to deny allegations he had sex with an underage teenager.

Andrew, looking resolute and calm, said he wanted to "reiterate and reaffirm" Buckingham Palace statements dismissing accusations, made in US court documents, that he had sex with a woman on three separate occasions when she was a minor.

Lawyers acting for Virginia Roberts, a mother-of-three now in her 30s, have filed a letter in a Florida court addressed to the duke at Buckingham Palace, asking him to take part in a two-hour interview.

Speaking to leading figures from the worlds of politics and business at the World Economic Forum in the Swiss resort of Davos Andrew said: "Firstly I think I must, (and) want, for the record to refer to the events that have taken place in the last few weeks and I just wish to reiterate and to reaffirm the statements which have already been made on my behalf by Buckingham Palace."
