Paloma Faith: I was meant for 40s

Paloma Faith believes she would have been more of a chart topper in the 1940s.
The kooky singer and actress - who has previously cited Frank Sinatra, Billie Holiday, Etta James and Ella Fitzgerald as her influences - thinks she would have been a bigger star in the 40s.
Paloma said: "If I could have lived in any other decade it would be the 1940s because as a singer I think I would have been more successful in the 40s, but I do like my home comforts and I'm not into rationing so I think I'll stick with now."
Paloma, 28, is part of a celebrity panel to find Nokia's first ever entertainment reporter to celebrate the launch of its latest model and entertainment device the X6 16GB.
The Imaginarium Of Doctor Parnassus star is joined by Jameela Jamil and Gavin And Stacey star Mat Horne on the judging panel to find Nokia's X6 All Areas entertainment reporter to cover some of the most exclusive events across the globe, from a top VIP bash in Hollywood to a trackside seat at the Spanish Grand Prix.
Applicants can apply at www.nokia.co.uk/x6-all-areas and the panel will choose six finalists to compete for the position by reporting at a range of top showbiz events.
The celebrity panel will then judge the finalist's reports from each event and decide on an overall winner to become Nokia's X6 All Areas entertainment reporter for a whole year.
