A builder working on a construction site horrified star guests at a London Fashion Week show on Tuesday (16Sep14) when he plunged through a glass roof. The accident happened during a Fashion East event at a Topshop Show Space in the city, and attendees including former MTV presenter Alexa Chung and pop star Pixie Lott were left shocked by the incident.
Eyewitnesses report the victim toppled through a corrugated plastic roof panel and bounced off a large metal pipe before plummeting 50 feet (15.3 metres) and landing on his back.
Paramedics were called and the man, who has not been named, was treated at the scene before being taken to hospital.
A witness tells Britain's Daily Telegraph, "At first there was confusion, we thought it was a light falling over. Then security men started running backstage and there was loud shouting. The weird thing was that the show just carried on. The whole audience was totally bewildered."
A spokesman tells Vogue, "The way that the Topshop space is built, the walls that separate the catwalk and audience space from backstage don't go all the way to the ceiling, so people could see that something had happened, but it did not in any way endanger the audience. It didn't happen above people's heads and there was no one in the space where he fell."
Pop star Rihanna has aimed a foul-mouthed rant at U.S. TV bosses for dropping her song from a sports show in the aftermath of a domestic violence scandal affecting a player.
The Umbrella singer's hit track Run This Town had been reworked with a comedic segment featuring Don Cheadle for broadcast on Thursday Night Football last week (ends14Sep14). However, the song was dropped from the line-up after Baltimore Ravens player Ray Rice was caught on camera allegedly assaulting his partner in an elevator resulting in a ban from playing in the National Football League (NFL).
Rihanna, who was a victim of domestic violence herself in 2009, has now spoken out about the song ban and accused TV bosses of punishing her for someone else's mistakes, insisting she does not want them running the track in this week's (beg15Sep14) show. In a serious of posts on Twitter.com, she writes, "CBS you pulled my song last week, now you wanna slide it back in this Thursday? NO, F**k you! Y'all are sad for penalizing me for this... The audacity..." Reports suggest CBS bosses now plan to drop Rihanna's song for a second time following her Twitter.com rant.
Rihanna was left battered and bruised after she was beaten by her then-boyfriend Chris Brown following a pre-Grammy Awards party in 2009. Brown was later convicted of assault for attacking the singer.
Gucci Mane's jail time has been extended after the rapper pleaded guilty to aggravated assault following an attack on a fan at an Atlanta, Georgia nightclub. According to Fulton County District Attorney's spokeswoman Yvette Jones, the incarcerated hip-hop star, real name Radric Davis, pleaded guilty on Monday (15Sep14) to hitting a man in the head with a vodka bottle in March, 2013.
Reports suggest the victim, an Army staff sergeant, was merely asking the rapper to pose for a photo with him.
Davis has been sentenced to serve three years behind bars. This will be added to the 39-month federal firearms sentence he was handed in August (14).
You hear the name Sophia Bush, and your first thought is probably: One Tree Hill. If that’s true, than you’re already on the right track. Sophia played Brooke Davis, everyone’s favorite character on OTH. But when OTH ended two years ago (still crying about it) that didn’t mean she was gone from TV forever. Right after OTH, she was on the show Partners (but it only lasted 1 season) before she reclaimed her badass throne on Chicago P.D. as Erin Lindsay.
Brooke was the first starring character that Sophia played on TV:
Originally, she was a little too much of a party girl. She was the head cheerleader, most popular girl in Tree Hill, and the Queen B. But anyone who watched OTH knows that the ditzy side of Brooke Davis didn’t stick around for long.
Brooke was not going to ever let bullying and self-consciousness get her down:
I mean, how could Brooke Davis even be self-conscious? She was Brooke Davis.
She was an advocate for positive body image:
She also hated double standards and would not stand for them:
Whenever she cried, we cried (not as beautifully):
That is power.
She always cared about her friends, even if they were fighting, and even if it almost killed her:
No really, it almost killed her. But Brooke Davis could kick some ass:
No psycho, not “Derek” or Xavier could break Brooke. Even after becoming the victim of vicious attack:
She could throw shade better than anyone else:
She was a business mogel when she was still a teenager:
She was an independent woman who didn’t need a man and would not take any shit:
But, when she decided she was ready to settle down, she landed one of the sexiest guys to ever grace the show:
Even then, she never let her hubby give her shit. Ever:
And she was the cutest, best mother ever. The end:
Now, Sophia plays detective Erin Lindsay on Chicago P.D. and she actually kicks ass:
Erin is not someone to be messed with:
She also makes the uniform look really, really good:
If you haven't already, bow down to the queen. We love you Sophia, may your TV reign never end.
You can catch her ruling the channels on Chicago P.D., which comes back Wednesday September 24th.

Bosses of an Australian radio station have donated $490,000 (£289,000) to a trust fund for the family of a nurse who killed herself after falling victim to a prank call by two of its DJs. Jacintha Saldanha hanged herself after she was wrongly convinced to transfer a call to the room of Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge while she was in hospital with severe morning sickness in December, 2012.
The prank was broadcast by presenters Mel Greig and Michael Christian on their show on Australia's 2Day FM, and on Friday (12Sep14) an inquest into Saldanha's death ruled the incident "was clearly pressing on her mind" when she took her own life.
Now it has emerged bosses of Southern Cross Austereo have donated $490,000 to a trust fund to benefit the nurse's family.
A statement from the company reads, "We do not assume, of course, that this donation or any amount of money could relieve the feelings of loss felt by Mrs Saldanha's family, but it is our hope that it may help them in the future. Southern Cross Austereo has always accepted full responsibility for the making of the call and its broadcast."
One-time abuse victim Rihanna's introduction to U.S. TV's Thursday Night Football special was yanked at the last minute on Thursday (11Sep14) and replaced with an interview with embattled league commissioner Roger Goodell amid the sport's ongoing domestic violence drama.
Rihanna’s Jay Z collaboration Run This Town was billed as part of the launch of the 2014 season of the CBS show, but network bosses decided the programme should open with a more serious message following the recent Ray Rice scandal.
Rice was arrested earlier this year (14) following an altercation with his then-fiancee in a hotel elevator in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Sickening footage of the incident has since been released and earlier this month (Sep14) the sportsman was kicked off the Baltimore Ravens roster and banned from playing in the National Football League (NFL).
Goodell came under fire from the media and women's rights groups for not acting sooner in dealing with Rice, amid accusations he and NFL bosses don't take domestic violence seriously enough. The commissioner has since spoken out about the scandal, dismissing reports that suggested the footage of Rice knocking his now-wife unconscious was made available to NFL executives in April (14), and his exclusive interview with CBS newswoman Norah O'Donnell was replayed at the beginning of the Thursday night football coverage, as well as a chat with Ravens team owner Steve Bisciotti.
As a result, Rihanna's reworked Run This Town, featuring a comedic segment starring Don Cheadle, was axed.
Announcing the decision hours before the big game, CBS Sports chairman Sean McManus said, "We thought journalistically and from a tone standpoint, we needed to have the appropriate tone coverage." Ironically, the featured game was a clash between the Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers. Rihanna was a victim of abuse in 2009 when her then-boyfriend Chris Brown attacked her during a fight on the eve of the Grammy Awards. The R&B singer is still on probation following his violent actions.
Spanish radio personality Eddie 'piolin' Sotelo's SiriusXM radio show has been cancelled after less than a year on air. The popular host launched El Show de Piolin last October (13) on the American satellite station but bosses at SiriusXM have announced they have "mutually agreed to end their relationship".
Sotelo's four-hour daily morning show came just three months after his long-running syndicated programme on Univision Radio was cancelled amid allegations he sexually harassed a regular guest over a three-year period.
Earlier this year (14), Sotelo hit back with a lawsuit against six former staff members, insisting he was the victim of an extortion plot, but a Los Angeles County judge ruled the radio personality had failed to prove he would prevail in a trial and was ordered to pay $100,000 in legal fees for the employees listed in the lawsuit.
Actress Edie Falco visited a police station in New York City on Friday (05Sep14) to report a missing bicycle. The Sopranos star told officers her electric cycle had been swiped from outside a doctor's office in Manhattan and Falco admits it is the fourth time she has been a victim of bicycle theft.
She tells the New York Post, "I've had three other bikes stolen in the city, but they were (regular) bicycles."
Saved By The Bell star Dennis Haskins found himself inundated with phone calls from concerned family and friends this week (beg01Sep14) after he became the target of the latest celebrity death hoax. The actor, who portrayed school principal Richard Belding, was rumoured to have died in a car accident in Tennessee last weekend (30-31Aug14), but Haskins was unaware he had been 'killed off' until he was contacted by panicked loved ones.
He tells HuffPost Live, "I was aware of it Sunday night, a friend of mine called me crying. She said, 'I just wanted to hear your voice.' I said, 'Why? Are you OK?' She goes, 'You're not dead!' And I'm like, 'No!' I didn't know about it."
The 63 year old continues, "The next day, a script supervisor from the show called me and said, 'Denny, I was just making plans to go to Tennessee and go to your funeral!' I'm like, 'Holy cow!' So she sent me the link (to the fake article), I saw what was going on... they made it look legit. The story was written really well, it was really laid out, I'm not complimenting this person, but it was like a police report. 'Travelling at a certain rate of speed... crossed over a line... no alcohol or drugs in his system...' The things all tied in and it could've made sense."
Haskins admits he was dismayed to have to comfort worried pals, but he has been overwhelmed by the outpouring of support.
He says, "I have chills all over me, because, that's the by-product of this for me, is I've seen so much love and affection and response and people caring... This is people really caring."
Haskins is the latest in a long line of celebrities targeted by sick pranksters - Jennifer Lopez, Dwayne Johnson, Miley Cyrus and Lil Wayne are just some of the stars who have fallen victim to the hoax in recent months.
Veteran British DJ Dave Lee Travis had a "propensity" to grope women and hoped his fame gave him "the perfect right" to abuse them, a court in London has heard. The former BBC Radio 1 stalwart, who was cleared of 12 indecent assault charges in February (14), is facing a retrial on three counts, and the hearing formally began on Friday (05Sept14).
The jury was told Lee Travis is facing two charges of indecent assault and one of sexual assault involving three different women between the 1980s and 2008.
One alleged victim claims she was groped when she was working on a theatre show with Lee Travis, another accuses him of groping her outside his dressing room before a chat show appearance, and a third is a journalist who says she was molested during an interview at the DJ's home in Buckinghamshire, England.
Prosecutor Miranda Moore, QC, told the jury at London's Southwark Crown Court, "We say that these incidents show that he has a propensity to lay his hands in a sexual manner on young women and that he is an opportunist... The defendant seemed to act as if he had the perfect right to grope."
Lee Travis denies all three charges.
The trial continues.
A wealthy woman is trapped by a fierce storm in the house with no electricity or phone, her murdered sister's body hidden in the basement, and a killer waiting for an opportunity to make her his next victim.
