ROBBIE WILLIAMS has been spotted on Chatroulette, a social network once dubbed the 'willy waving website', which sets up random one-to-one web chats between users. The site fast became popular among people wishing to show off their privates and, in 2010, research showed that one in eight sessions resulted in "something R-rated or worse" – although the site claims to have cleaned up its act since then. Williams did not, in any case, flash too much flesh - instead choosing to sing one of his new songs to a fan. Accountancy student Adam Houabi, from Essex, tells The Sun: "One minute I was talking to a bloke from Algeria, then amazingly Robbie appeared."

KAREN GILLAN 'FONDLED' DR WHO IN TARDIS
Doctor Who actor Matt Smith has claimed his co-star Karen Gillan "fondled him in the Tardis", according to The Sun. Gillan, who plays the Doctor's companion Amy Pond, apparently pinched Smith's bottom when they were filming their final scene together. Smith, Gillan and Arthur Darvill, who plays Rory in the series, were in complete darkness on set. Smith reveals: "We had a hug and Karen fondled me. I called her Fondling Bottom Gillan." Darvill added: "All those feelings kept inside for so long just suddenly came out."

ANGELINA JOLIE AND MRS PITT IN FAIRY FEUD
Angelina Jolie is said to be "furious" with Brad Pitt's mum for buying her daughter fairy outfits. Six-year-old Shiloh apparently loves dressing as a tomboy but Jane Pitt insists on buying her fairy costumes and princess dresses. An insider told the Metro that Jolie finds this "very disrespectful". Gay rights campaigner Jolie has already fallen out with her future mother-in-law after Mrs Pitt wrote a letter to a Missouri newspaper opposing same-sex marriage in the US.

HAS NEW BRIDE BEEN PICKED FOR TOM CRUISE?
Speculation is rife as to whether the Church of Scientology has already picked out a new bride for freshly single Tom Cruise, the Daily Mail reports. Latin actress and devout scientologist Yolanda Pecoraro is said to be the "perfect match" for the actor who recently split with Katie Holmes. One insider claims that the church will do whatever it takes to control the damage from the very public divorce between Cruise and Holmes. The church wants to show that Cruise has "rebounded fast and that his new wife is beautiful and steeped in Scientology", says the source – adding: "If the church decides to make Yolanda Tom's next wife, they'd certainly want her to have a child soon."
