ROBERT PATTINSON has outed himself as a Westlife fan, while dismissing One Direction. According to Perez Hilton, during a recent interview the Twilight actor was asked which boy band he would rather be a member of and he quickly replied: "Westlife definitely. Westlife are one of my favourite bands." He then explained that he certainly wasn't a fan of One Direction, because he doesn't know much about the popular group: "I actually don't know any songs that One Direction have done. I've just seen pictures of them."

COUNCIL WARNS RESIDENTS OF VAMPIRE
Sales of garlic are booming in western Serbia after a local council issued urgent warnings that a vampire is on the loose in the area. The vampire, named Sava Savanovic, apparently escaped from his watermill home in Zarozje village when the building collapsed. Local mayor Miodrag Vujetic said: "People are worried, everybody knows the legend of this vampire and the thought that he is now homeless and looking for victims is terrifying people. We are all frightened." According to the Daily Mail, the council has advised villagers to put garlic on their doors and to place a cross in every room.

SHEEN: 'TWO AND A HALF MEN IS CURSED'
Charlie Sheen believes that Angus T. Jones, the Two and a Half Men actor who called the show "filth", is "acting like a crazy cult member" because the programme is "cursed". TMZ reports that Sheen, who was sacked after his own public breakdown, said Angus had suffered a "Hale-Bopp-like meltdown", a reference to the Heaven's Gate cult who committed mass suicide in 1997 in order to reach aliens following an appearance of the comet in the night sky. Sheen explained: "It is radically clear to me that the show is cursed." The actor also hit out at Two and a Half Men's creator, Chuck Lorre, for creating a "hive of oppression" on the show.

PIPPA IS A 'SINNER OF THE YEAR'
Pippa Middleton has been named a Sinner of the Year after appearing on the English National Opera's list of those who have "fallen out of public favour", the Daily Mail reports. The ENO produces an annual list of "society offenders" for a production of The Mikado. Pippa's verse in the opera reads: "And the sister of the Duchess who has brought out a new book/ It's not sold well at all but her back cover's worth a look." The other 'sinners' included are: Sally Bercow, Nadine Dorries, disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong and many of the BBC's top executives. ·
