Paper round

The brother of Manchester United footballer Ryan Giggs spent a night in a police cell after allegedly being involved in a punch-up at a charity golf day.

The Daily Mirror reported that Warwickshire Police arrested Rhodri Giggs at an event in aid of the Five Stars Scanner Appeal to raise funds for an MRI scanner for Manchester's New Children's Hospital.

The event was organised by Ryan Giggs and actor Max Beesley. A source told the Mirror: "Ryan was livid. It's not good for a punch-up to happen at an event you've been so involved with."

Some men say it with flowers, but the boyfriend of one lucky lady made an unusual declaration of love by bidding £178,000 at an auction for the Aids research organisation Amfar so his other half could kiss Hollywood heart-throb George Clooney.

A smooch with the actor was the star lot at an auction held at the Cannes Film Festival, the Daily Express reported. It's not known whether Clooney threw in any extras.

Beat, the eating disorder charity, looks set to benefit from the generosity of another Hollywood star, Keira Knightley. The actor said that she will give the charity the £3,000 in libel damages that the Daily Mail has been ordered to pay her.

The Independent gleefully reported that the Mail was ordered to make the payment after publishing a "deeply offensive and embarrassing" article that suggested Knightley had "dishonestly sought to mislead the public" over whether she had an eating disorder.

It is not the first time Beat has benefited in this way. Actor Kate Winslet gave £3,000 of damages to Beat after she won a High Court action against Grazia magazine over claims she had visited a diet doctor.

The Winslet story was reported last month - by the Mail.
