And the award for the stupidest news story goes to…  reported that Nicola Roberts is carrying a skull around to ward off men. A creepy head on a stick with which has a tuft of red hair to match hers. (insert your own joke here)

Nicola was given the bizarre gift by a fan at last weekend’s Virgin Mobile V Festival, and actually kept it. After splitting with her long-term partner in May Nicola is hoping it’s going to scare off men.

Job well done love!
