He explained: "I've got Kourtney's name on my hand, but she's the only ex whose name I've got done. I've branded her like Heinz Beans."

A group of Harleyquin ladybirds with a sexually transmitted disease are rumoured to invade Britain.

A mass of the dotted insects, which are identified by their black wings instead of the common red colour, are infected with the STD Laboulbeniales fungal disease and are believed to be flying over from Asia and North America to the United Kingdom, according to the Mirror Online. Speaking about the sudden influx of bugs, Professor Helen Roy from the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology in Wallingford, Oxon, said: "These ladybirds also feed on grapes so they are often found in vineyards which, of course, becomes a problem for wine production." However, Buglife nature charity have revealed the ladybirds aren't a threat to humans, although they will leave behind a foul smell and stains on furniture and clothes. A spokesman for the organisation said: "Large gatherings of them can give off a chemical smell and in centrally-heated houses they may be woken up from hibernation by the warmth and fly around the house."

A car was stolen but returned with an apology letter and cash.

Erin Hatzi has admitted she panicked when she woke to find her vehicle was not where she left it, and was left puzzled when the red Subaru mysteriously returned the next day with $30 to fill up the petrol tank and an explanation, according to the Mirror Online. The letter read: "Hello, So sorry I stole your car. I sent my friend with my key to pick up my red Subaru at 7802 SE Woodstock and she came back with your car. I did not see the car until this morning and I said, 'That is not my car.' There is some cash for gas and I more than apologize for the shock and upset this must have caused you. So so sorry for this mistake."

Brits are racking up subscriptions to TV services.

A 'subscription addiction' is taking hold of the UK, with TV addicts paying out millions for services and then phoning up to try and cancel them. According to the research, conducted by subscription-free satellite TV service, Freesat, irate Brits waste seven days in their lifetime trying to cancel unwanted subscriptions, with mobile phones, TV and Internet topping the list. With the amount of contracts adding up, Brits admit to having more subscriptions in their lives than close friends.Nine out of 10 people surveyed said they have more than 20 subscriptions at a time, when their average circle of friends encompasses just three people.

In response to the news, the subscription free satellite TV service Freesat has set up a free-to-call Subscription Addiction hotline to ease Brits' subscription worries, outlining top tips for people to manage their subscription stresses effectively. Jennifer Elworthy, director of marketing and communications at Freesat says of the survey, "Brits don't think twice about signing up to subscriptions even though many are unwanted and unused. We want to help people find alternative ways of getting TV and other services they want without having to tie themselves into a lengthy and expensive subscription."
