Sorry for the late update this week, here’s the round up:

Kate Bush has recieved a CBE. She didn’t speak to journalists but did release a statement:
” I feel incredibly thrilled to receive this honour which I share with my family, friends and fellow musicians and everybody who has been such an important part of it all.  Now I’ve got something special to put on top of the Christmas tree”

Nadya Tolokonnikova, one of the jailed members of Russian band Pussy Riot has spoken from prison to declare she will continuing her political activism
When asked if she had thought about her life after prison,she replied: “My life isn’t going to change – there will be new key components because of the experience I’ve gathered here. The vectors of politics and art will continue the same.”

Upstairs Downton: The Improvised Episode is the lost episode of a popular TV costume drama set in the 1920s, inspired by audience suggestions.
