We've been looking back at your memories - Louisa Harrington from Clevedon became "princess for a day" at Buckingham Palace just before she died.

Mike Tindall says nose surgery may be on the cards

Former England and Gloucester rugby star Mike Tindall is ready to get his nose fixed - but not because of how it looks.

Tindall, who is married to the Queen's grand-daughter Zara Phillips, revealed he can no longer breathe properly through the crooked appendage.

"I don't really want to get it fixed but it looks like I might have to because I can't actually breathe very well. I guess it's something similar to a pug," he told the Daily Mirror.

"The problem is that if I get it done, will people say I've had it just because I'm doing TV stuff now? Because it's definitely not."

Tindall appeared in the ITV series Bear Grylls: Mission Survive earlier this year in which he and other celebrities plunged into the depths of the central American rainforest for a 12-day survival challenge.

Zara's mother the Princess Royal urged the sportsman to have the surgery ahead of his wedding in 2011 but he declined.

The ex-England captain broke his nose as a child, falling off a dodgem, but also suffered several breaks on the rugby field.

Tindall is a proud dad to toddler Mia but when he and Zara announced they were expecting a baby, he took to Twitter to express his delight, joking that he hoped their child would not inherit his looks.

He wrote: "Thanks for all the kind messages, we are very excited and I agree with you all that hopefully he/she won't have my nose."
