The Celebrity Big Brother star, who died on Sunday evening, revealed he cut himself off from the world, and admitted: “I wanted to die and just end it all. I’d had enough.”In his book Shaken Not Stirred, Keith said he first got a taste for booze aged 10, when he downed a bottle of Babysham at a party.
Olympian Sharron Davies has revealed the secret heartache behind her quitting Celebrity Island with Bear Grylls. The swimming idol’s departure from the Channel 4 survival show seemed to come out of the blue. Some viewers even thought she walked because she could not hack the tough conditions. Now she has told how she went home to support her teenage daughter Grace, who was coping with a tragic loss. Sharron said: “One of my daughter’s best friends, a young man aged 18, committed suicide.
Dancing On Ice stars will want to stay in good nick as they practise moves for the comeback series – because they’ll be rehearsing next to one full of baddies. The ITV show, back after three years next month, will be filmed yards from Hertfordshire prison The Mount - so show bosses will surely be hoping there’s no repeat of August’s riot at the clink near their rink on Bovington Airfield.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
