He was a barman before he got into the demolition game Fast talkAn instant interviewwith... Kate Walsh THE 27-year-old Apprentice runner-up talks about being a control freak, combining brains and beauty and why shes loving her new showbiz lifestyle... Boss or apprentice? Boss. Because Im a control freak and a bit of a perfectionist. Bus or Tube? I love the bus but it takes too long so I travel by Tube. Sir Alan Sugar or Donald Trump? Definitely Sir Alan because Im very patriotic and I love his very dry, English sense of humour. Matthew Wright or Ian Wright? Ian Wright is one of my co-hosts on Live From Studio Five, so him. We have great banter and Im now an honorary Arsenal fan. Beauty or brains? Both. Theyre not mutually exclusive and can be more powerful if you can combine the two. Margaret Mountford or Nick Hewer? Margaret was always very serious whereas Nick has more of a cheeky side. Katie Price or Melinda Messenger? Definitely Melinda Messenger (left) who is my other co-host. Shes really chatty and very bright. Im not saying that Katie Price isnt any of those things though... Celebrity or anonymity? So far being in the public eye has been a really positive experience for me.

The so-called Hollywood Hills Burglar Bunch are alleged to be behind raids in Los Angeles. The gangs victims also include Megan Fox, Orlando Bloom, High School Musical star Ashley Tisdale and The OC actress Rachel Bilson. Diana Tamayo, 19, and Courtney Ames and Alexis Neirs, both 18, were charged along with Roy Lopez Jr, 27, and Nicholas Prugo, 18. They are accused of checking celebrity magazines and paparazzi photographs to decide which items to steal, before using Hollywood star maps to locate the homes of their alleged victims. The teenagers attended the same high school in Los Angeles and police say they enjoyed a taste for luxury goods and accessories. Officers have seized a laptop believed to carry photographs of the suspects wearing items they are accused of stealing, including Miss Lohans blue Rolex watch. The five are due in court next month. CCTV: thieves at Lohans LA home Victim: Lindsay Lohan lost a blue Rolex watch A SHOPKEEPER was attacked with a machete and metal poles by a gang of teenagers after he caught one of them steal- ing sweets. Fawad Irshad, 29, was left with head and serious facial injuries following the revenge attack by the gang of 10 youths. Two of his brothers were also injured when they intervened to try to stop the assault outside the family store in Forest Gate. The attack took place as the brothers were shut- ting up their shop on Tuesday night. A gang of black youths with their faces covered by scarves and balaclavas approached the men and launched the attack. Police believe the inci- dent came two days after the shopkeeper caught a young member of the gang stealing 50p-worth of sweets and handed him over to the authorities. Mark Hills-Francis, 22, who witnessed the attack just before midnight, said: H i s bro t he r s we re screaming like he was dead. Police said today that Mr Irshad was in a seri- ous but stable condition in hospital. One of his brothers, 27, was being treated for a knife wound to his hand. The third brother, aged 20, has been discharged from hospital. Five men have been arrested.
