Banksy's Bristol tribute to Vermeer

The graffiti artist Banksy has once again chosen his home city for his latest work.

The mural, which pays tribute to Vermeer's girl with a pearl earring, has gone up on a wall in Bristol docks, near the Cottage Inn and ss Great Britain. Banksy's trademark sense of humour comes into play again though - with a burglar alarm standing in for the original's jewellery.

X Factor singer Chloe-Jasmine Whichello has revealed she is planning her revenge on Simon Cowell - by naming a new hamster after him and watching it run round in circles.

The 23-year-old model, who went to Wells Cathedral School, lost the sing-off against eight-piece boyband Stereo Kicks on last night's show, where the TV mogul told her that she lacked passion.

It meant a double elimination for her mentor Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, who also said goodbye to another of her acts Stephanie Nala.

Whichello said she was unhappy that Cowell appeared to be preserving his own acts and then teasing his fellow judges.

She said: "I respect him very much as a businessman. His brainchild of The X Factor is spectacular.

"What I didn't agree with was, he had all of his acts secured and sat down on the panel to intimidate the other judges."

She added: "I'm now about to purchase a hamster, call it Simon Cowell, and it's going to be running around a kennel."
