Harry travelled to France to attend a service for his great-great uncle who served during World War I

The drummer joined his relatives to remember Padre Alan Cecil Judd exactly 98 years after he died.

McFly’s Harry Judd paid a touching tribute to his great-great uncle at a service to remember him.

The drummer travelled to France to honour Military Cross-winning Padre Alan Cecil Judd exactly 98 years after he died in World War I.

He was joined by his relatives, including wife Izzy and their eight-week-old daughter Lola at the rededication ceremony at the Fifteen Ravine British Cemetery in the village of Villers-Plouich, near Arras.

Paying tribute to his great-great uncle the 30-year-old said: “We were all incredibly moved to hear about our relative and to be here today is quite something.

“The lesson that we can take is the kindness that he gave. To show kindness is something that really hit home for me. And the story itself on how (his discovery) came about is also incredible.

“A chaplain who wrote about chaplains from WWI, there was this unmarked grave and it was him who was responsible for taking it forward and finding out who Alan was.”

Speaking alongside his family after laying a wooden cross by Rev Judd’s headstone, he added: “I’m very proud to be able to bring my daughter here today, who is Alan’s great-great-great niece.

“She is eight weeks old today and it is 98 years since Alan died. We are all very proud and privileged to be here.”

It was little Lola’s first trip abroad.

Rev Judd, who was attached to the 2nd/5th Battalion, the Sherwood Foresters, was killed instantly aged 31 after being hit by a hand grenade as he went to the aid of a comrade on March 21 1918.

St Paul’s and Oxford-educated Rev Judd, who was one of nine children, was buried as an “unknown soldier” at the Fifteen Ravine British Cemetery.

His identity was sought for many years by a group of other padres who cycled around France’s military cemeteries.

Ellie confirmed she and Dougie are no longer together but that they remain as friends.

In an exclusive chat to 3AM’s Hannah Hope, Ellie reveals she needs some time to herself after Dougie split

After a show-stopping performance at the Grammy Awards last month, Ellie Goulding has been busy travelling the world on her Delirium tour, barely stopping to catch a breath.

But underneath her energetic stage persona, the singer, 29, has been dealing with heartache since splitting with her McFly drummer boyfriend Dougie Poynter.

The couple dated for two years, splitting briefly over Christmas, but eventually decided to call it quits last month with their work commitments keeping them in different countries.

“I’m not in a relationship any more so that has been hard,” Ellie tells 3am in her dressing room backstage at her first UK gig in Cardiff’s Motorpoint Arena on Tuesday night.

“Everyone knows breaking up with someone is a terrible thing and it’s really hard and it’s complicated.”

Thankfully, the tour has given Ellie a positive focus, so the break up doesn’t engulf her.

In a intimate chat, sipping Veuve Clicquot champers amid the waft of scented candles, softly spoken Ellie admits that she’s still in touch with Dougie, while he explores career options in LA.

She says: “Dougie is a really special person. He’s one of the most special people in the world and I’m so happy for him he’s doing so well in LA and he’s still one of my best friends and I know he feels the same.”

For Harry Judd, the McFly drummer crowned Strictly Come Dancing king in 2011, it came as a surprise: Paddy McGuinness, host of hit dating show Take Me Out, wanted to wrestle him.

Despite his wife’s pleas — and Judd’s admission that he is “totally an underdog” — he accepted, and the duo will fight it out in Sport Relief’s Clash Of The Titans competition next month.

“Strangely, he personally requested to wrestle me,” said Judd, 30. “I don’t think I have any beef with him. I am pretty sure he thinks I will be an easy competitor.

“He challenged me to an arm wrestle once and he won easily so maybe it was that. Or maybe he saw me on Strictly and thought, ‘I could take Judd.’

“He is much taller and about three stone heavier and is pretty strong. I am totally an underdog, but I quite like that. And I am going to try to do everything I can to make it a good fight.

“I am quick on my feet from Strictly, I have a lower centre of gravity than Paddy and I’m not as easy to push around as I look.

“It will be a real David versus Goliath challenge. Hopefully I will survive. I have a picture of Paddy McGuinness on my fridge to keep me inspired and get me going. I am going to take him down.”

However, McGuinness, 42, joked that the wrestling match was hardly David and Goliath as Judd has “muscles on his muscles, lives in the gym and is 18 years younger than me”. He added: “What could possibly go wrong?”

In the competition — broadcast as part of the BBC’s Sport Relief coverage on March 18 — captains Sir Steve Redgrave and Freddie Flintoff will lead celebrity teams through challenges.

Team Flintoff will include Judd, East-Enders star Maddy Hill and newsreader Sophie Raworth. Team Redgrave boasts Will Young, McGuinness and TV historian Dan Snow.

As well as the wrestling, Judd, 30, is taking part in a cycling challenge at the Lee Valley Velodrome — and his wife Izzy, who gave birth to their first child last month, has been worrying.

He said: “They offered me the rhythmic gymnastics, which I would have agreed to. But then when the email came through about wrestling Paddy then I was really keen. It is more of a challenge.

“My wife wasn’t best pleased. She was like, ‘Do you have to do the wrestling and do you have to do the cycling?’ She worries it’s not safe.”

Asked about their new daughter, Lola Rose, he said: “Surprisingly our grasp of nursery rhymes is a little poor. We only seem to know Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star. I’m going to have to up my game a little bit there.”

This is the fifth time the Standard’s Dispossessed Fund has joined forces with Sport Relief and Comic Relief.

So far, £4 million in donations has gone to 271 projects tackling social exclusion across the city. Londoners are also urged to sign up to the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Games, at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park on March 20.

“Dougie started taking acting lessons last year and decided it was something he wanted to pursue and take seriously

Not content with being in two massive pop bands, Dougie Poynter is trying to crack Hollywood. The McFly and McBusted star, 28, has been out in LA meeting with top agents and producers.

The floppy haired bassist has already got a neat side project away from music, as he was snapped up by Kate Moss’s modelling agency Storm back in 2014.

But Dougie is looking to move and talk in front of the camera as well as pose.

A source said: “While the bands are taking a bit of time off, Dougie has been busy networking across the pond.

“It’s pilot season in LA, which is when lots of casting decisions are made.

“He’s not filmed anything, but he has had productive chats with some really important people out there.

“Dougie started taking acting lessons last year and decided it was something he wanted to pursue and take seriously.

“He’s not looking to stay out in Los Angeles permanently just now, but who knows in a year or two?”

Dougie still has upcoming McFly commitments, but the bass player had a bit of time out while the rest of the boys get on with their own things.

Much of which has to do with making babies.

Harry Judd became a father for the first time last month and Tom Fletcher welcomed his second son this week with wife Giovanna.

The couple kitted out a £900 Bugaboo Donkey double buggy blue on both sides for sons Buzz and newborn Buddy.

She’s one of the busiest ladies in showbusiness and singer Ellie Goulding has said she’s doing her best to make things work with her boyfriend Dougie Poynter, despite their hectic lives.
In an interview with Lorraine on Tuesday morning, the 29-year-old said she doesn’t see the handsome chap much.
She said: ‘He’s out in LA working hard and he’s doing all sorts of things. He’s started acting. He’s amazing, a complete natural, so I am excited to see what comes of that.

‘We work it out, we figure it out. We are pretty realistic with things. We’re pretty sensible about it and we just see each other when we can.’

Lorraine said: ‘Eventually, I’m sure you two will settle down at some point, but you don’t need to.’ to which she replied:

‘It’s just that time that everything comes up in the air, you don’t know what’s gonna… but at some point, maybe.’
The couple have dated for over two years, but were rumoured to have split in early December, however, Ellie soon rekindled her relationship with the 28-year-old a month later.

Tom talked about the soon to be brother or sister of Buzz during his appearance at the CopaFeel Celebrity Boob Ball.

[x21]EVENTS AND APPEARANCES > 2016 > COPAFEEL CELEBRITY BOOB BALL, LONDON – FEBRUARY 1

The McFly frontman is expecting a sibling for son Buzz very soon

The McFly frontman and his author wife Giovanna are set to become parents once again at the end of the month.

Speaking exclusively to OK! Online at Coppafeel’s Celebrity Dodge Ball tournament, he admitted that the baby could arrive at any moment. “We’re prepared, I think,” he said.

He added that two year old son Buzz is also looking forward to becoming a big brother. “He’s kind of aware,” he said.

“I don’t know if he’s aware of quite how much it’s going to change his life though, a new brother of sister. But he does know there’s a baby coming.”

The singer also admitted he hasn’t yet met bandmate Harry Judd’s new baby Lola.

“I haven’t met her yet, I’ve been poorly so I’ve been staying well away,” he said. “They’re getting on very well, I’m very excited to meet her.”

With a wife and a sister both ambassadors (or boob ninjas) for Coppafeel, the 30 year old revealed why he thinks the breast cancer charity is so important.

“It’s an amazing message and one that’s so simple. To pass that message on to people, woman and guys to check themselves and know their own bodies, it’s important.”

He added: “You need to know your own body and know if there is anything different going on. Just familiarising yourself.”
