Vanessa Feltz

Congratulations to @vanessafeltz, the @BBCLondon949 presenter, who is to be inducted into The Radio Academy Hall of Fame.

Maps

Our capital has been brought to life by a collection of maps showing a diversity of data such as ethnicity, football support and lost property.

Longer Trains

An extra carriage has been introduced from today on the busiest sections of the London Overgound network. The addition of a fifth carriage means capacity is boosted by 25 per cent thanks to TFL's £320 million upgrade to rolling stock and stations.

Foreign Passports

Foreign Passports - 1.7 million Londoners hold them with Poles, Irish and Indian cockneys leading the way.

Ed Sheeran

The Thinking Out Loud singer says he spent two years homeless before finding fame and one of his favourite spots was next to Buckingham Palace. 'There was an arch outside that has a heating duct and I spent a couple of nights there,' he said.

Diwali

Music, dance, food and Ayurvedic massage are some of the treats in store on Trafalgar Square this Sunday (12.10.14), for the annual Festival of Lights. Free entry.

Keira Knightley

Grateful to The Imitation Game co-star Benedict Cumberbatch and his umbrella last night, as the pair attended the rain-soaked opening of the London Film Festival at the Odeon, Leicester Square.

Mobile Phones

190,000 of them are left in the back of London taxis every year, a new survey calculates, and a third of cabbies admit to taking a peak at what secrets the phones hold, possibly to trash the Uber apps.

Spandau Ballet

Performed last night at the Royal Albert Hall, 30 years after they were last at the venue, in support of new film Soul Boys of the Western World, which chronicles the 80s band's career. 'That was tough having my life up there,' said Gary Kemp.

Nicole Scherzinger

The former Pussycat Doll graduates to full Cats status when she plays Grizabella in a revival of Andrew Lloyd Webber's muscial, set to start at the London Palladium on 6 December. 'I can't wait to begin rehearsals,' said the ex-X Factor judge. Book tickets here.

Queen Mary University

The only London college in the top ten of most sexually active universities. QM students had an average of 7.93 bedroom partners during their degree course, enough for fifth place in a new survey, but way behind top-rated University of Brighton, whose students managed 10.59.

Lindsay Lohan

Forgot her lines during the preview for Speed-the-Plow at the Playhouse theatre last night. To be fair, she did remember the phrase, 'I know what it is to be bad, I’ve been bad' and much of her performance was fine. Tickets here.

24-Hour Tube Trains

Only a year to wait until London Underground goes 24-hour, with six-eight trains an hour due to run after midnight on five lines - the Central, Jubilee, Piccadilly, Northern and Victoria - from 15 September 2015.

Ghost Stations

Dozens of London Underground's abandoned stations and tunnels are
to be sold off as clubs, hotels and shops and are said to be worth up to £3.6 billion all told.

Robert Burns

As Scots vote on their nation's future, their national poet is in town to keep a check on any backsliding at the Houses of Parliament. Burns has been waiting in the Embankment Gardens for 130 years. As he said, 'Suspense is worse than disappointment'.
