ROBERT PATTINSON and Kristen Stewart are planning to ditch Hollywood for Cornwall. According to The Sun, the couple, now reunited after Stewart's cheating scandal, enjoyed a recent visit to the South of England so much they are now considering buying "a remote cottage" there. The Twilight co-stars are apparently fed up with the "craziness of the US" and want to escape to the "calm" of the English county. Robert "took Kristen to Lizard Point for a four-day trip and hardly anyone bothered them," the Sun says. "They had a fabulous few days just being normal." 

EMMA WATSON WON'T DATE BRITISH MEN
Emma Watson has said she will never date a British man again. According to the Daily Mail, despite saying British men "dress well and are very well mannered", the Harry Potter star finds them far too restrained. Describing "the whole courting situation" in Britain, Watson said men first "ignore her" then "they'll probably be a little mean to me". In contrast, the British actress prefers American men's approach because they simply say: "You're great. Let's go on a date. Let's do it.'" However, Watson admitted that guys in the US tend to "wear flip-flops. I don't know if I like that".

MEL B SLAPPED SIMON COWELL
Mel B has revealed she once slapped Simon Cowell because he kept making jibes about her being fat whilst she was pregnant. The Sun reports that, during a night out a restaurant, to tease the Spice Girl Cowell kept ordering her plates of food - trying to make out she was eating too much. Mel said she repeatedly told him to stop: "I kept saying to him ‘Excuse me, I'm pregnant – do not be like that with me' and then at the end of the meal he called me fat. So I just slapped him."

SPOTTY ZEBRA SHUNNED BY HERD
A zebra has been shunned by its herd because it has spots instead of stripes on its back. The Daily Mail reports that the unusual zebra was found in Kenya's Masai Mara by photographer Paul Goldstein, who says in all his 25 years in Africa he has "never seen a zebra with such an unusual coat". Zebras are typically sociable animals that travel in herds, but this one has been cast out because of his spotty back. Goldstein says the distinctive zebra appears to "have no mates" and is always spotted on his own. Apparently this has made the animal "extremely bad tempered" and aggressive to anyone who comes near. ·
