BBC bosses have settled a legal wrangle with Gemma Collins after her horror fall while presenting at the Radio 1 Teen Awards – by giving her a place on Celebrity MasterChef. The Towie star fell through a trap door on stage while hosting last October, and later confirmed she was consulting lawyers as a result of her injuries. But she offered to back down on her claims if Beeb executives agreed to book her to appear on Strictly Come Dancing.

HEARTBROKEN Coronation Street legend Bill Roache has returned to the soap’s set today following the death of his daughter. The soap icon was warmly embraced by co-stars as he returned to the show’s famous cobbles for the first time in over a week, after his eldest daughter Vanya passed away aged 50 from liver failure. Bill, 85, who has played Ken Barlow since the first episode in 1960, was devastated by the loss and took ten days off to recuperate and come to terms with the tragedy.
Sorry to go all Corbyn but this is horrific @virgintrains - pay nearly £90 for a ticket and there are nowhere near enough seats. Standing for two hour journey is totally unacceptable, and should result in discounted rate. Shameless profiteering.
@daywalters1984 I've worked at the Mirror and the Mail and was then offered a senior role by the country's biggest news publisher. I've got two very young children to provide for. It didn't take me long to make the decision.
@JHolman91 I think everybody would totally understand that... journalists did exactly the same and accepted him as the figure we all believed him to be... only slight issue is reporters were later criticised for associating with him at all, totally unfairly!
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".
