Visitors flock to Cassadaga to talk to the dead.

The community in Florida, United States is known for being home to a number of mediums and spiritualists and has thus been dubbed the 'psychic capital of the world,' the Daily Mirror newspaper reports. However, the town's link with the spiritual world, isn't taken well by everyone.

University professor Kristin Congdon explained: "Some people feel stand-offish about it like it's a place for witches, or Satanism. There are stories like 'birds don't fly over Cassadaga', which of course they do, [but] when you really start paying attention to what the religion is all about, it really isn't so far-fetched at all."


Dame Judi Dench has been named Britain's favourite Bond girl

Andreas Vass, head of film at Cineworld, commented: "Our Unlimited Card customers are some of the biggest film fans in the country; they keep up with all of the latest blockbusters and often watch multiple films in a trip!

"It's always great to get their opinions, and we know how excited they and all of our customers are to see SPECTRE next week."

A couple has spent over £200,000 to look like their idols, dolls Barbie and Ken.

Quentin Dehar and Anastasia Reskoss - who live together in Paris, France - have had a number of cosmetic procedures between them, including two boob jobs, four nose jobs, botox, and eye bag removal surgery, the Daily Mirror newspaper reported.

She said: "I realised that I had always wanted to look like the dolls that I used to play with. As you get older, you get to become who you want to be - and now I knew I wanted to become a Barbie. "I started to learn how plastic surgery could allow me to change into a bronzed and beautiful doll."
