Actor Damian Lewis, singer Cheryl Cole, and pop act Jls took to the trading floor in London on Tuesday (03Nov13) to raise money for charity. The stars showed off their stockbroking skills buying and selling shares at investment firm ICAP, which donated Tuesday's entire revenue to good causes as part of the company's 21st annual global Charity Day.
Other celebrities who helped raise cash included The Saturdays, Peter Andre, TV presenter Holly Willoughby, and model Cara Delevingne's sister, Poppy.
Even royalty got in on the act - Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall also took to the phones to rally up business.
The proceeds will help 16 different charities, including Alzheimer's Research UK, the JLS Foundation, Mind and WaterAid.
Last year (12), stars including Goldie Hawn, Alan Rickman and Sean Bean helped raise $16.5 million (£11 million) on ICAP's Charity Day.
One Direction heartthrob Harry Styles was honoured with the 2013 British Style Award in London on Monday night (02Dec13). The 19-year-old singer was praised for his excellent fashion sense during the British Fashion Awards.
Styles nabbed the accolade from three-time winner, model and TV personality Alexa Chung, who presented him with the award, and he gave a very brief speech thanking all those who voted for him.
He saw off tough competition from David Beckham, Kate Moss, the Dutchess of Cambridge and model Cara Delevingne.
Edie Campbell reigned supreme in the Model Of The Year category, Burberry claimed Brand of the Year and Kate Moss, who was honoured for her 25-year modelling career, took home the Special Recognition Award.
Singer Harry Styles refused to stick with tradition and crashed his model ex Cara Delevingne's sister's bachelorette bash in London on Saturday night (30Nov13). Poppy Delevingne threw a wild retro-themed party at the U.K. capital's posh Groucho Club, which was attended by her supermodel sister and famous female friends including actresses Sienna Miller and Jaime Winstone and TV presenter Alexa Chung.
Styles, who was once linked to Cara, did not want to miss out on the fun - he turned up to the bash, which was in celebration of Poppy's final days as a single woman ahead of her wedding to James Cook.
The One Direction star donned a blond wig to impersonate a member of 1990s band Hanson, along with radio star Nick Grimshaw and a female pal.
The trio partied at the club until the early hours of Sunday morning (01Dec13), when Styles left the venue wearing a huge elephant mask.
He later posted a snap of himself posing with Miller on his Instagram, and wrote: "I was part of Hanson."
Meanwhile, supermodel Cara had an embarrassing end to the night - she gave a woman driver a shock by hopping into the backseat of her car after mistaking it for a taxi cab.
Supermodel Cara Delevingne is set to showcase her musical talents in front of a star-studded crowd at the British Fashion Awards on Monday (02Dec13). The beauty, who is keen to launch a career in music, will reportedly perform a drum medley at the event, which will be attended by stars including Victoria Beckham and Kate Moss.
One Direction star Harry Styles has no idea if his recent dinner date with Kim Kardashian's half-sister Kendall Jenner will turn into something more serious. The pop hunk sparked rumours of a new romance after he was photographed leaving a Los Angeles restaurant with Jenner on Wednesday night (20Nov13), but the Best Song Ever hitmaker admits he is unsure about where he stands with the 18-year-old model.
Asked by TV personality Piers Morgan if he is dating the beauty, Styles replied, "We just went out to dinner so no... I guess. I don't know."
The singer, 19, has a history of high-profile relationships - he famously dated Taylor Swift, while he has been linked to supermodel Cara Delevingne and British TV presenter Caroline Flack.
British musician Jake Bugg has opened up about his relationship with model Cara Delevingne, insisting they were friends who bonded over their meteoric rise to fame. The pair hit headlines earlier this year (13) after being spotted on the London social scene, and reportedly went on to date for several months.
Bugg has now revealed they were never serious, and he sees the beauty as a good pal who knew what he was going through after being thrust into the spotlight.
He tells Britain's The Sun, "I need a woman who will kick me into shape and doesn't give a f**k about what I do. As for Cara, it wasn't really anything. Someone took a photo of us and that was it. She was just a really good friend to me. It was cool to meet someone who's got the same crazy life. You can chat about it and say how mad it is."
Bugg also insists he was never concerned about Delevingne's privileged upbringing, adding, "I didn't care about our class difference. I don't care about class. I know I'm working class and I'm proud of that. I'll never judge anyone from where they are from, as long as they are a nice person. That is what matters."

Of course the biggest entertainment news of the day comes in the form of two teenagers going out on one date. Let's just reflect on that for a moment. Teenagers, on a date. Shocking. Apparently, the world's combined fascination with One Direction and the Kardashians is just so huge that this date needed to be broadcast on every single entertainment site and show known to man. Anyway, let's break down all the weird and wonderful meanings of this union.
Right off the bat, I'm going to break those romantic hearts and call this "date" out for what it most likely is – a publicity stunt. Jenner and Styles both have something to gain from being photographed together, especially this week. Recently, the newly 18-year-old Jenner uploaded an Instagram picture where she showed off her (sort of) naked chest. The uproar over that photo combined with her date with Styles could be enough to seriously launch Jenner's modeling career into the big leagues, which she clearly wants. Styles too can profit from this as he is currently promoting his new One Direction album, Midnight Memories, which will be released later this week. In addition, 1D will be performing at the American Music Awards and this little stunt could easily draw in audiences for Sunday's show, which could boost record sales. Voilà, see how amazing this "date" could turn out for the both of them?
However, in the more unlikely circumstance that the Styles/Jenner union is real, then the fascination with these two is a bit more understandable and noteworthy since it could mean the joining of two huge pop-culture empires. But, before anyone gets too excited, let's face the facts. Basically any tidbit of news about Styles' romantic life is immediately reported, while every move made by a member of the Kardashian klan is quickly discussed. Just because we see a photograph of these two together doesn't necessarily mean they are dating. Plus, it's hard enough to date as a teenager with your parents dissecting your life, let alone when you have the whole world doing it. So even if the date was real, this so-called relationship probably won't last long.
But, before this "relationship" dies its quick death, let's take this opportunity to ponder the long-term possibilities of a Jenner/Styles union. Firstly, would Jenner go out on tour with 1D? Would she try being a singer like Kim did that one awkward time? Would Styles' reputation go from bad-boybander to doting celebrity boyfriend? Would the duo have singing model babies on their own reality show? Oh, all the amazing things that could happen.
Anyway, the epic (and most likely only) date of Jenner and Styles occurred on Wednesday, Nov. 20 at the West Hollywood restaurant Craig's. Jenner has previously been linked to rapper Young Jinsu while Styles publicly romanced Taylor Swift and Cara Delevingne.

One Direction star Harry Styles has sparked new romance rumours after he was spotted dining out with reality TV star Kendall Jenner. The pop star, 19, and the 18-year-old model were seen eating together at Craig's restaurant in Los Angeles on Wednesday night (20Nov13).
The pair left the eaterie via the back door in a bid to avoid attention, before the Brit drove them away in a black Range Rover.
Styles has previously been linked to Taylor Swift, Cara Delevingne and British TV presenter Caroline Flack.
The date night came just days after Jenner, the younger half-sister of Kim Kardashian, faced a backlash from fans on Twitter.com after she exposed her breasts during a racy photoshoot.
Actress Lindsay Lohan, British model Cara Delevingne and Vogue editor Anna Wintour were among the stars who joined Kim Kardashian in the VIP section at the Barclays Center in New York to attend a concert by her rapper fiance Kanye West on Tuesday (19Nov13). The gig was the first of four Big Apple dates on West's Yeezus tour.
Model Jessica Hart has criticised Victoria's Secret fashion show producers for booking Taylor Swift as the main performer at Wednesday's (13Nov13) annual event, insisting she was out of place on the runway. The I Knew You Were Trouble singer was the headlining act at the Lexington Avenue Armory bash, where she was joined on the catwalk by beauties including Lily Aldridge, Adriana Lima, Erin Heatherton, Cara Delevingne and Behati Prinsloo as they strutted their stuff in sexy lingerie.
Swift won high praise from many of her model co-stars for her hits-packed set, but one Victoria's Secret stunner wasn't a fan.
Hart tells WWD.com, "I think, you know what, god bless her heart. I think she's great. But, I don't know, to me, she didn't fit. I don't know if I should say that."
Asked if Swift could pull it off as a Victoria's Secret model, Hart bluntly stated, "No", before adding, "I think what you find is that for a lot of us, we've been working for 14, 15 years; what it takes to make it here comes from experience and confidence and knowing how to be confident with yourself. I think it comes with age. It's definitely the benchmark of all jobs."
The other performers at the 2013 lingerie show were Fall Out Boy, A Great Big World and Neon Jungle.
