I sense a family row coming on.
Emma Watson, of Harry Potter fame, must be SO annoyed at her younger brother Alex if rumours that he has signed up for the third series of reality show Made In Chelsea are true.
Show regular (although she seems to be increasingly not in it) Amber Atherton has said;
"The producers think it would be amazing to get Alex on the show. He's good-looking so he'd make great competition for Spencer."
How. Embarrasing. For a young woman with Emma's credentials, a Reality TV-famous sibling using her name to get on a trashy programme must be a bit annoying.
Adding to the general awkwardness is the fact that Emma was recently revealed to have had a fling with Chelsea cast-member Francis Boulle, who claims to have dumped Miss Watson because she's too famous!

Wannabe rocker Frankie Cocozza has been kicked off The X Factor.
The unprecedented move comes after he allegedly boasted about using Class A drug cocaine in front of production staff. Clever. Not taking drugs is one of the 'Golden Rules' of the show, and having broken this rule, Frankie had to go.
Although his legions of teenage fans will be devastated, it's probably for the best that he's gone - for him and for the show.
Frankie released a statement, saying;
"I'd like to apologise to Gary, my fellow contestants and everyone who has voted for me, but, as of today, I will no longer be in the X Factor.
"My life during the show has gone out of control and my behaviour off stage has over-stepped the rules of the competition. I no longer deserve my place in the show, so I am therefore leaving.
I would like to thank everyone who has supported me."
Well, it's a fine way for him to show it. It's one thing being Jack the Lad and taking recreational drugs in your normal life, if that's how you choose to live. It's another thing entirely to break an explicit rule of the competition that's giving you an opportunity to be successful and famous (...at least for six months) at the expense of others.
At least he had the decency to apologise. If he really has a problem, and hasn't just been caught having a cheeky one, then I sincerely hope he gets the help he needs. As a young guy, he's got a better chance than most to knock any burgeoning habits on the head. Best of luck to him in getting sorted.
The current gossip swirling around is that an eliminated act - Johnny Robinson or The Risk, most likely, will be able to fill the place and have another chance to prove themselves.
The X Factor representatives are refusing to make any announcements until tomorrow, so watch this space...

Even though she only went 'into hiding' this week, it is now being claimed that Kim Kardashian is attempting to patch things up with her sports star husband, Kris Humphries.
TMZ managed to snap the starlet on her way through Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport at 5.30am this morning. And who lives in 'Sota? Mr. Kris Humphries.
Although there's no solid reports of reconciliation, there have been murmurs since Kim filed for divorce that she wasn't ever completely sure about ending her marriage.
Personally, I don't think you can know if a marriage is going to work after only a couple of months, so I'm not surprised that Kim may now be having second thoughts...

Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, sparked rumours that she might be pregnant yesterday in Copenhagen.
The royal fashionista refused the offer of tasting the peanut paste used in UN food parcels. Prince William, the Danish crown prince, and his wife happily ate the food, which is used to help people in famine-stricken areas.
Doctors advise pregnant women to avoid peanuts and all their by-products in order to prevent any allergic reaction.
Kate's spokeman confirmed that the Duchess herself is not allergic to peanuts, further adding to the rumour mill that there may well be a royal baby on the way.
If Kate is pregnant, then that child, regardless of whether it is a girl or a boy, will be in line to the throne thanks to recent law reforms that give female children the same succession rights as males. Exciting!
On the other hand, Kate's famously tiny waist showed absolutely no sign of expansion, so you know...she might just not like peanuts.
Since filing for divorce from her husband of 72 days, basketball star Kris Humphries, Kim Kardashian has been under some intense media scrutiny.
The queen of reality TV initially looked to be getting on with things, flying out to Australia to promote her line of handbags. However, since quitting her promo tour, Kim K has gone into lockdown mode.
She arrived at LAX yesterday, only to be faced with a barrage of paps. Kimmy jumped straight into her car and drove off, with the photogs in hot pursuit. Sneaky Kim managed to pull a fast one by switching cars halfway through the journey, meaning that she managed to lose the press and hole up in a secret location.
Sources close to the Kardashians have said that the plan is for Kim to remain in hiding until she starts work on a film.
A film called 'Marriage Counsellor.' I literally couldn't even make that up if I tried. It's too perfect.
