After a brief hiatus, Saturday Night Live returned this week, boasting host Kristen Stewart-who last took aim at Trump for his bizarre Twitter obsession with her-and musical guest Coldplay, who performed one of the most cursed woo-woo songs I've heard in a long time.

And, after a cold open featuring Kate McKinnon's Elizabeth Warren (one of her better impressions, though the bit lacked any bite), struggling to explain to Iowans how she plans to pay for Medicare for All, the late-night show aired a White House press briefing featuring none other than Kellyanne Conway. "It is I, Kellyanne Conway, and if you're watching this you are going to die in seven days," she announced.

Dame Julie Andrews has revealed that the author of Mary Poppins told her she was "far too pretty" for the role.  The actress was in hospital following the birth of her daughter when she received a gruff phone call from Pamela Travers  "She said: 'Well talk to me' .

And I said: 'I'm sorry I've just had a baby yesterday, I'm feeling a bit out of it'," Dame Julie told an event at London's Southbank Centre where she was promoting her new memoir. "She said: 'I understand you're going to play Mary Poppins? You're far too pretty of course, but you've got the nose for it'."

Katie Taylor vowed that the best is "yet to come" after she became a two-weight world champion with a points victory over Christina Linardatou to clinch the WBO super lightweight title.

Inside a sold-out Manchester Arena, the undisputed lightweight champion outpointed the Greek fighter to inflict her first loss since March 2016, when she lost to Delfine Persoon. Taylor beat Persoon to own the lightweight division in New York back in June, establishing herself as one of the best female boxers ever.
