Madden: I will only give Bodyguard a second shot if storyline is strong enough RICHARD MADDEN has said he will only sign up to a second series of the hit BBC drama Bodyguard if the storyline is strong enough.

We were very good friends and he changed my life. In a way, the album is dedicated to him." Ora launched her album -- the first since her debut Ora in 2012 -- at a private party at Annabel's in Mayfair last night. She was joined at the bash, sponsored by Ciroc vodka, by friends including Nick Grimshaw, as well as her sister Elena and parents Vera and Besnik. …
