Cruzs new haircut CRUZ BECKHAM makes a rather scary spaceman as he arrives at his brother Romeos seventh birthday party. Cruz, four, dressed as an astronaut for yesterdays bash, at a Brazilian restaurant in Hollywood. He also sported a pair of red shades and, just in case someone failed to realise hes from a famous family, had a star shaved into the side of his head. Houston,wemay haveaproblem withthisone... Urban spaceman baby: Cruz in his astronauts outfit H CHLOE MADELEY was today banned from driving for 20 months after overturning her car in a drink-drive smash. The 22-year-old TV presenter was arrested two weeks ago when she clipped another vehicle, causing her Peugeot 206 to roll on to its roof. Hendon magistrates heard she had been almost twice the legal limit, having had two cocktails earlier that evening. Madeley, the daughter of chat show hosts Richard Madeley and Judy Finnigan, had returned home after being out with friends, but in the early hours realised she needed a 24-hour chemist and went out again, not thinking she was over the limit. The court heard that just before the accident she realised a Mini was parked at an unusual angle, but it was too late to avoid it. Madeley, who presented Big Brothers Big Mouth, was left dazed and in shock. She left the scene of the crash, near her parents Hampstead home, but police arrested her soon afterwards. Chair of the bench Clive Lewisohn told her: You exposed the public, including yourself, to considerable danger. She was also ordered to pay a total of 435, including 70 prosecution costs. by GEORGINA LITTLEJOHN index.html2.html3.html4.html5.html6.html7.html8.html9.html10.html11.html12.html13.html14.html15.html16.html17.html18.html19.html20.html21.html22.html23.html24.html25.html26.html27.html28.html29.html30.html31.html32.html33.html34.html35.html36.html37.html38.html39.html40.html41.html42.html43.html44.html45.html46.html47.html
