Freddie Mercury: forever alive in music, the greatest showman of the 1980s and a leading runner even for the greatest showman of all time. The incredible music of Queen has stood the test of time, and it's still just as incredible and popular now as it was back in the 70s and 80s. Many bands looked up to Queen and influenced them hugely on their musical journeys, including Metallica, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Guns n' Roses and U2.
As a child, a favourite of mine was the bright and colourful world of Rainbow Brite. A young girl called Wisp is brought to a grey, dull land, with a mission to bring colour to the fictitious world, by locating the Sphere of Light.

Twinkle Annuals, which were especially for little girls. Twinkle started as a Comics Magazine in 1968 until 1999, with an Annual every year from 1970, and its last was in the year 2003. The Annual contained stories of regular characters, and some new ones, all illustrated with beautiful pictures. Fun, colourful, perfect for a little girls' imaginations. There were also some puzzles pages and pictures to colour in, very exciting for a child! The Annuals were printed and published by D.C. Thomson & Co. In 2012 Royal Mail issued a special stamp of Twinkle, to celebrate Twinkle's history!
It's always so refreshing to hear of the huge acts of kindness from the Hollywood favourite Keanu Reeves. Giving kindness, generosity and help, for no other reason than he wants too. The Mister nice guy of Hollywood, who is always spoken highly of and whom we have never heard a bad word about. The actor, director, producer and musician, Keanu Reeves, who has been appearing in Hollywood films for over thirty years. From big buck blockbusters to low budget independent films. He is a leading figure in tinsel town, who likes to keep a low profile, riding his beloved motorbikes or relaxing at his home in the Hollywood Hills.
Emma Bunton has her very own show this Christmas and what better venue than the Royal Albert Hall to host it? The Spice Girl thoroughly deserves this honour, to have all the attention on her and to let her talent shine.
