Sergio Bucher - Debenhams
We are making good progress with implementing our new strategy, Debenhams Redesigned, and are encouraged by the results from our initial trials, as well as the number of exciting new partners who want to work with us. The environment remains uncertain and we face tough comparatives over the key Christmas weeks.feedback

“Although job cuts have risen this month, they continue to be significantly lower compared to the same time last year. Although we have seen high layoffs in retail with store closings and some companies filing for bankruptcy, there has also been increased hiring in new areas of the sector as retailers build out their e-commerce platforms. Shipping and technology jobs are expanding and going unfilled. We are seeing a labor market in which skilled technical and logistics/supply chain talent is in high demand.” said John A.

Candace Cameron Bure

I was very excited for Jodie to do a Christmas movie this year. Lori and I had been talking to Hallmark and said Jodie would be perfect for one, so I'm thrilled it happened.feedback

Anne Chertoff - WeddingWire

Engagement season starts at Thanksgiving, and it runs through Valentine's Day, with a concentration at Christmas and New Year's. It's family time… they want to show mom and dad the ring, and pop some Champagne.feedback

Jon Lucas

We felt like we barely scratched the surface in the first Bad Moms in terms of all the ways it's impossible to be a mom nowadays. Plus, this movie has way more waxing than the first movie, so that's always a plus.feedback

Jonathan Louis Lester

I have two sisters. It was Christmas week. I thought I had ruined Christmas. I had probably ruined Christmas forever. I had probably ruined Christmas for the Griffith family forever, too.feedback

Lucy Powell

It used to be a place taken up by Tory men like Iain Duncan Smith and Jeremy Hunt. So a group of Labour women then tried to occupy it. But now the Tory whips have clearly told their women to get into chamber early and just stand there. It is a desperate attempt by the Tories to show they are in charge of the place when the reality is that they are simply losing control of it.feedback

Juergen Klopp

Sky, thank you! It's a very very good decision, especially for the fans, that's number one because it's still difficult for them. We will do everything from the club's side, like bringing the fans on Friday night at least back from London. We respect all the contracts in the Premier League, but it's still the players who decide how nice the game is, and when they never can rest, it's a problem. We only have one day football off ( Christmas Day) in the year and I think that should be okay for most of the people.feedback

Farrah Idris

They're very useful for cleansing an environment. They're antibacterial and antiviral, but without the chemical nasties that you get in modern-day products. Eucalyptus and tea tree are natural purifiers. Don't forget, with some of them you can make your own blend and have a go at scent styling with three or four different oils. For Christmas, you might want to make a blend with orange, frankincense and clove.feedback

Farrah Idris

A lot of these diffusers work on the same principles, which allow you to control the vapour release. Of course, a lot of it is about the way it looks. This one makes for a really beautiful gift for the home or for Christmas.feedback

Juergen Klopp

If Sadio is fit, we cannot hide it. If he his fit, I do not think we can do anything to keep him here and he would go with the national team of Senegal. At this moment, I do not know.feedback

Juergen Klopp

He is a fantastic boy and always it helps if you settle as a person very quickly. It helps you settle in as a player. And I don't think he needed even half an hour to settle in the team. If he can stay fit that will be very important for us. Egpyt have qualified but I do not think they give him a lot of rest. He is their man in Egpyt, like Sadio in Senegal, so I am always a little bit afraid when they are away on different pitches, long travels and stuff like this. But so far it has gone and well, and hopefully it stays like this.feedback

Juergen Klopp

To be honest I don't know when it last happened, that somebody could take something but did not take it, because of common sense. I don't know. So, Sky, thank you. Usually [it is] 'I can get it, so I take it' and that is how it is, and that is how the world looks a little bit in this moment. I thought it was a very, very good decision – especially for the fans because that is number one.feedback

Anissa Mack

Some families have Easter or Christmas. We had the state fair. My grandmother was a pickle judge, my aunts always entered jams and jellies, my mom would make a quilt or needlepoint or enter vegetables or flowers, and my dad always did something – photography or horticulture, usually, sometimes baking. I'm interested in my body of work looking like the things that came out of the fair, not in their craftiness, but in their diversity. Fairs are great sources for images.feedback

Nisha Sharma

I can't even imagine how hard it must have been to try to hold on to traditions and celebrations in a country – in a town – where there were very few resources to use and very few people who understood. I read from my tattered English-lettered puja [prayer] book that I got when I was a kid. I light one real diya and a few tea candles. I turn on all the lights in the house, and if I'm able to, hang a few Christmas lights as well. Most importantly, I buy myself a festive pair of pajamas and binge on halwa [a fudge-like confection] and channa [chick peas].feedback

Michael Steel

This is a wrinkle, having a legislative deadline threaten Thanksgiving. We usually screw up Christmas.feedback

Marianne Rawlins

Had I known it would be three months, I would have signed a three-month lease for an apartment, car and office. The issue, and main expense, is the not knowing. I don't believe I will reunited with my husband in the UK for Christmas. Frankly, I won't be surprised if I am still sitting here, roaming around and hopping from couch to couch this time next summer.feedback

Donald J. Trump

So let's give our country the best Christmas present of all – massive tax relief. And speaking of Christmas. You know I'm just talking about Christmas, I'll give you a bigger Christmas present: You're gonna be saying 'Merry Christmas' again.feedback

Tyler Roys - AccuWeather

Britain could easily have seven storms named by the Met Office by Christmas. Storm centres will travel just north of Scotland, leading to rain to batter much of Scotland each time they pass through.feedback

Alan Clarke

I still think that the unemployment rate will fall to 4.1pc by Christmas. If that happens, it will make the case for another [interest rate] hike after the November meeting [of the Bank of England's Monetary Policy Committee].feedback

Mary Berry

Most of us, I think, live in the kitchen. I do. We've given up our dining room, finally. I don't think my husband really agrees with me but I said we use it at Christmas time and occasionally for having people round.feedback

Donald J. Trump

We are stopping cold the attacks on Judeo-Christian values. And something I've said so much during the last two years, but I'll say it again as we approach the end of the year. You know, we're getting near that beautiful Christmas season that people don't talk about anymore. They don't use the word 'Christmas' because it's not politically correct. You go to department stores, and they'll say, Happy New Year' and they'll say other things. And it will be red, they'll have it painted, but they don't say it. Well, guess what? We're saying 'Merry Christmas' again.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I want them to say, Merry Christmas. Everybody. Happy New Year. Happy Holidays. But I want Merry Christmas. It's happening already. You know it. You know it's happening again.feedback

Greg Kurstin

She is unbelievable. I don't know how she comes up with song lyric and melody ideas so quickly. She's like no one else ... What really blows my mind is just that she wrote these new Christmas stories, in a way and it's kind of amazing that she did that.feedback

Angela Trofymova - Good Housekeeping

Luxury supermarket Marks & Spencer has proved that shelling out a little more where possible can take your festive dining experience to the next level, while budget supermarket Aldi shows you can get cost-effective quality without breaking the bank.feedback

Greg Kurstin

I'm still sort of new at this Christmas thing. I have some sleigh bells in the studio, so I can get in the mood pretty quickly.feedback

Donald J. Trump

We are stopping cold the attacks on Judeo-Christian values. They don't use the word Christmas because it is not politically correct.feedback

Angela Trofymova - Good Housekeeping

Supermarkets understand that consumers tend to trade up over Christmas and many have focused on their premium ranges. M&S has proved that shelling out a little more where possible can take your festive dining experience to the next level, while budget supermarket Aldi shows you can get cost-effective quality without breaking the bank.feedback

Sam Woods - Bank of England

If we get to Christmas and the negotiations have not reached any agreement on this topic, diminishing marginal returns will kick in. Firms would start discounting the likelihood of a transition in the central case of their planning.feedback

Simon Blackburn

Councils take their responsibilities to protect their residents incredibly seriously, and this includes making sure that transport hubs are safe and that any security risks are mitigated.feedback

Pat Karney

Public safety is absolutely paramount at any event, and it is important for us that we can reassure people visiting our Christmas Markets that they know that we have done everything we can to make their visit is enjoyable and safe.feedback

Michael Che

I don't like that Trump supporters always want us to be specific when it's about stuff that's important to them. It can't be 'Happy Holidays' – it's got to be 'Merry Christmas.' It can't be 'Save the Planet' – it's got to be 'America First.' But then when somebody wants to stand up for black people or gays or women, they're like, Hey, wait a minute – what about everybody else?' So, you know what? So don't think of it as me saying 'Happy Holidays' anymore. Think of it as me saying, All Holidays Matter.feedback

Susan Sarandon

I think it was 'Don't have the baby,' as though it would ruin my career, and I was so old anyway. A Bad Moms Christmas is about losing perspective and setting ridiculous goals that get in the way of what should be fun at the holidays. Just surrender the idea that you're going to do everything right, because the odds are not in your favor.feedback

Jack Wilshere

I know we have to adapt to the schedule dictated by TV. I would say if that happens I think no game should be played after two o'clock at the latest on Christmas Eve. Personally, I would prefer to be at my home on Christmas night and celebrating. I still feel that could happen if we play early in the day.feedback

Jack Wilshere

What you wouldn't like to sacrifice is your evening with your family. But we are going into a society where that isn't considered anymore in any decision. People want to watch football during the Christmas period.feedback

Arsene Wenger

I know that we have to adapt to the schedule dictated by TV. If that happens, I think no game should be played after 2pm. I would prefer to be at home on Christmas night and celebrating. I still feel that could happen if we play early.feedback

Arsene Wenger

You wouldn't want to sacrifice your evening with your family. But that isn't considered any more. People want to watch football during the Christmas period.feedback

Abigail Baird

Morgan continues to believe in Vulcan Mind control and the videos show you Anissa is a patch work, who was vulnerable to something violent. The girls were prepubescent at the time of the attack, which added another layer of immaturity. They were just old enough to feel like they had to have friends, but they were young enough to believe in Santa Claus. I can't get my mind around trying 12 year olds as adults. Would you honestly want these girls on a jury if you were in trouble? Because that's what that means. They'd give you life because they don't like your shirt.feedback

Philip Hammond

It has value today, it will still have a very high value at Christmas and early into the New Year, but as we move through 2018 its value to everybody will diminish significantly. I think our European partners need to think very carefully about the need for speed in order to protect the potential value to all of us of having an interim agreement that protects our businesses and our citizens and allows investment in normal business activity, contracting and so on to carry on.feedback

Wilson Cruz

My parents knew I'd auditioned for a gay character, but that's all the knew. I made a deal with myself that if it got picked up, I would come out. He chased me and kicked me out of the house. My character Ricky Vasquez went through the same experience on the show, and was kicked out of his house. I didn't know my father was secretly watching the show, and when the credits rolled on the Christmas episode, he called me and said, Maybe it's time we had a talk.feedback

Juergen Klopp

I really cannot imagine that anyone wants to watch football on that night.feedback

Kate Oates

Ever since I got here, it's been rumoured that Carla's coming back. But it was never true. Even the latest indications of it. Ali has only just signed her contract and she'll be back around Christmas. In terms of reflecting diversity and showing black and Asian characters, yes, we absolutely need to do more of it. And we need more black and Asian writers, to bring out the truth of those voices.feedback

Steve Earle

First off, my dad couldn't believe he had to spend all this money on three records for his son, and then I put it on on Christmas morning, cranked it up, and I still remember when the 'Fish Cheer' came on and he comes sprinting down the hall just horrified. We can make some of it into a sociological thing, and some of it we can make into the fact 15-year-old boys like to curse.feedback

Paul Lockstone - Barclaycard

Looking ahead, consumers are protecting their purse strings against potential rate rises and other economic and political uncertainties. Many are planning a more frugal Christmas and will be taking advantage of peak sales periods such as Black Friday and Cyber Monday to make their money go further. As we head towards the festive season it will be interesting to see whether their spending intentions translate into reality.feedback

Patrick Surry

Based on Hopper's historical data, the best time to book Christmas flights is about 83 days before departure, which is the first week of October. Prices begin rising by about $4 per day around Thanksgiving, and then by about $7 per day in the final two weeks.feedback

Wayne LaPierre - National Rifle Association

I think you want to tell ATF to do its job. It's an interpretive issue. And they need to get the job done. But not let Dianne Feinstein, which is what she wants to do, turn this all into some Christmas tree on the Hill where she brings all her anti-gun circus, she's been trying to do for years, into this. There's not a gang member in Chicago, who's going 'hey I'm going to get you, but first I have to go through Dianne Feinstein's background checks.' It's nonsense.feedback

Stephen Isaacs

You've got the council of EU ministers meeting on the 19th and 20th of October and they are going to come out and say end the talks now. That will be the final crisis for Theresa May. She's got no plan. She'll be gone by Christmas.feedback

Stephen Isaacs

She said at the election I'm going to deliver this fantastic deal. Well, who are you going to deliver it to? No one is talking to you. She'll be gone by Christmas.feedback

Sarah Sands

That is indeed true, he is going to be one of the guest editors at Christmas. As always it is about trying to bring the best that we can to Radio 4 and the Today programme, so I think you will find Prince Harry's programme very, very interesting.feedback

Sophie Michael

In a month when footfall is down, positive like-for-like sales figures demonstrate that shoppers are willing to spend. The favourable weather patterns in September cannot be ignored, particularly for fashion, but this result will be encouraging for retailers as we enter the final quarter of 2017.feedback

Sophie Michael

Two consecutive months of positive growth will be a welcome relief for retailers following challenges seen in Autumn in prior years. Pulling off the best September sales growth for five years is a great result for the high street at the start of this critical trading period.feedback

Sam Woods - Bank of England

The impact of this first phase of contingency planning on jobs will be relatively modest.feedback

Sam Woods - Bank of England

We are not persuaded that these developments are a good idea. Unlike retail banking, wholesale banking is international by nature. We risk kidding ourselves if we think it can be neatly chopped up into geographic units in which international banks can be supervised and resolved separately.feedback

Sam Woods - Bank of England

We need to be mindful of the risks this can create, and so today we are announcing a new approach, to ensure that UK banking groups are at least as strong as their parts.feedback

Antonio Brown

We won the game today. It's like a kid being excited for Christmas. You work on it. You're expecting that play on that day. Sometimes, it doesn't work out, and you move on.feedback

Hugh Hefner

After the movie tonight, Crystal & I exchanged gifts. I gave Crystal a ring. A truly memorable Christmas Eve. When I gave Crystal the ring, she burst into tears. This is the happiest Christmas weekend in memory.feedback

David Limp - Amazon.com

We try to sell all our products at effectively break even. Most consumer electronics manufacturers make all their money the day they sell to you. Then all they care about is the next Christmas [and]selling you the newest version of their widget.feedback

Matthew Barnes - ALDI

I want to be crystal clear we are not copying. There are very strict copyright guidelines and we go to great lengths to breach … err, I mean not breach them.feedback

Arnold Donald - Carnival

The resiliency of those people and the focus they have, I would be very surprised if they're not up and running before Christmas, which is the time for the peak season. Very surprised if they're not.feedback

Andy Boland - Uber

With (Other OTC: WWTH - news) demand growing and Christmas approaching, Addison Lee wants to add to the pool of talented drivers providing our passengers with a premium service.feedback

Karen Walker

It's Christmas, for goodness sakes. Think of the baby Jesus!feedback

Sam Woods - Bank of England

Broadly, come Christmas time, we will need to move into a different mode of receiving applications.feedback

Francine Abbott

You can't help who you fall in love with. Love just happens sometimes and it's unexpected and that's kind of what's the awesome thing about it. I look at Aunty Chris and I don't think she planned to fall in love with Virginia, it just happened. It never really changed anything. She was still Aunty Chris. She's still going to be at Christmas… To see Aunty Chris marry Virginia, to do it here in front of friends and family, it would be so special and I'm so, so hoping that that's what I get to be a part of.feedback

Leo Varadkar

The indicative proposal is to have a standalone referendum on the eighth amendment in May or June next year. We'll very much follow on from the recommendations of the all-party committee which is considering the matter, and they've a deadline to report by Christmas.feedback

Thomas Rhett

I meet people in meet and greet and people will say, I know that that story is your story, but I kind of replace things that happen in my life and sing the chorus and it makes sense for all of us. That's one the things I thrive on as a songwriter is trying to make it as personal as I can and have it relate to as many people as humanly possible.feedback

Thomas Rhett

Last Christmas it was literally me and my wife and two dogs, and this Christmas is going to be my wife, two dogs and two kids. I would say that's the most massive change on the planet.feedback

Félix Ortiz Delgado

There won't be any gandules at Christmas this year. Even if we planted now, they won't be ready.feedback

Juli Lennett

Kids, who are the majority of toy consumers, aren't paying any attention to this. Kids will continue to make their holiday wish lists and parents/grandparents will continue to put these new toys under the Christmas tree. My expectation is that the holiday season will be business as usual for consumers.feedback

Wes Anderson

I really liked these TV Christmas specials in America. I always liked the creatures in the Harryhausen-type films, but really these American Christmas specials were probably the thing that really made me want to do it. But the new film is less influenced by stop-motion movies than it is by Akira Kurosawa.feedback

Katie Reed

I'm getting ideas for Christmas. The selection at Walmart (NYSE:WMT) and Target is not as big.feedback

Doug Hammond - Randstad US

I don't think it's a coincidence that the nationwide hire day coincided with the extreme front-end of peak-season hiring. They want to secure that labor.feedback

David Caines

Our number one reason for losing people is they can't show up for work on time every day. You don't want to cross a line and be so lax that things get out of control.feedback

Paul Corneetz

There's a lot of warehouses here…. There's a lot of trucks. Even ads on the turnpike for distribution centers.feedback

Michael Skubala

For me, though, futsal is not just for Christmas but, as a culture, it fits better than anywhere as a start for developing players of tomorrow in futsal and football. It makes total sense for kids to go indoors in the cold months. I remember playing myself as a youngster and being told I was soft for wearing gloves in the snow! So, if we can make these indoor facilities futsal-ready and bring down the barriers, we can get more people playing the game in the winter and throughout the year.feedback

Ed Sheeran

I have a feeling about [this year]. Seventeen is my lucky number, and everyone I was scared of releasing albums around me released them all last year – people like Beyoncé and The Weeknd and Bruno Mars. Taylor isn't going to be releasing until probably the end of this year – Christmas is the smartest time to release because that's when everyone buys records.feedback

Priscilla Presley

I hope you'll enjoy this new Christmas album. The songs chosen were songs that Elvis was particularly fond of and it seemed quite fitting to have the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra once again accompanying him at this very special time of year. I'm positive he would be smiling if this opportunity came up in his lifetime and that this album would definitely be in the making. Merry Christmas to all.feedback

Dave Walder

There were deep-rooted issues at the club when I left, financially and in terms of whether the players were happy. It took Dean maybe two or three years to turn things round and last year for the first time we were able to recruit well, from being in mid-table at Christmas.feedback

Brendan Rodgers

Of course, for our own performance level and for the nation, we are trying to gain credibility and, obviously, as professionals, we want to continue in Europe after Christmas, but you have to understand the size of the task. It's not PlayStation - it's top, top players we are playing. How can you compete with a £750m team?feedback

Bruce Arians

It's a great opportunity for Kerwynn Williams and Andre. We'll get Chris Johnson back up to speed.feedback

Bruce Arians

It was a really hard one. He was just getting back into good shape, and I look forward to having him back.feedback

Lauren Graham

I always said, while we were doing it, that I couldn't see more episodes in that form. Five years from now do you have A Very Gilmore Christmas?feedback

Linda Fairstein

I bought a collection of 100 at auction in 2012. I always get myself a Christmas present so I'm not disappointed.feedback

Britt Nilsson

I think we will have an intimate-feeling wedding (not too formal, definitely outdoors) but still try to invite as many loved ones as we can to celebrate! We want it to feel like a party, and a party that feels like us … so it will probably be under trees with Christmas lights with games and dancing and candles! And not a fancy chicken dinner you pick before hand, something more fun! Maybe some cool food trucks? And the dress –I'm not sure yet! Simple and sweet!feedback

Ben Sasse

The Pelosi-Schumer-Trump deal is bad. Seems right… assuming that the definition of 'RINO' = 'a conservative concerned about having the Democratic leader set Republican policy.feedback

Lucian K. Truscott IV

It got 37 angry replies, including Norman Mailer, who wrote, What do you know? The following week I wrote back to them. A year later I was invited to a Christmas party at Ed Fancher's apartment, and when I opened the door I hit Bob Dylan's arm and pitched a drink at Mayor Lindsay.feedback

Frank Field

The idea of making people wait six weeks, and sometimes longer, for their benefit to be paid is made to look increasingly questionable by each bleak new piece of evidence on universal credit. People who are already hard up simply cannot cope that long without an income. I've pleaded with the government for a Christmas truce – a postponement of the full rollout of universal credit in Birkenhead [the Labour MP's constituency] – otherwise the system will push families into destitution over the festive period.feedback

Brendan Rodgers

It's very important for us and we're focused on getting a result against Hamilton. This is what you're in football for, we have a busy schedule between now and the Christmas period, but it's what we want. It's a really exciting time.feedback

Arsene Wenger

You speak about Santi, he is having his first run today. So that is quite positive. The flexibility of his ankle looks good, his mobility is good and now it's back to getting back to full fitness without having any setbacks. So it's very difficult to predict when he will be available again. But overall, I think it's very difficult to set a time. Not before Christmas, that's why I didn't involve him in the Europa League, but overall I hope that after Christmas he will be available.feedback

Gregory Cohen

I told her I thought it was a great idea, but she could think on a bigger scale. This is not like putting a bike under the Christmas tree. You have to find a kid for whom an adaptable bike is suitable and make sure they have someone who is willing to coach them and stay with it.feedback

Chuck Schumer

Earlier today, we had a very productive meeting with President Trump, Leader McConnell, Speaker Ryan. In that meeting, we agreed to pass aid for Harvey, a continuing resolution, and an increase in the debt ceiling, both of those until December 15th. This is a really positive step forward. It will work to quickly provide aid to those hurt by Harvey. It will avoid default, and it will fund the government, avoiding a shutdown. And we all agreed we'd work together in December as well to avoid a default. So, it was a really good moment of some bipartisanship.feedback

Brendan Rodgers

Try not to lose the first game 7-0. We're playing against 11 motorbikes, aren't we? But listen, I want us to be playing European football after Christmas, that's the aim.feedback

Brendan Rodgers

But listen, I want us to be playing European football after Christmas, that's the aim. The games against PSG and Bayern are going to be great nights. And the one thing I will say is this: having been a manager around the world and inside some of the biggest stadiums, there is a noise at Celtic Park you just don't get anywhere else. But thank you. I came as close as anyone there to the holy grail of winning the league. That season, with the fans, it was special.feedback

John A. Challenger - Challenger, Gray & Christmas

Although job cuts have risen this month, they continue to be significantly lower compared to the same time last year. Although we have seen high layoffs in retail with store closings and some companies filing for bankruptcy, there has also been increased hiring in new areas of the sector as retailers build out their e-commerce platforms. Shipping and technology jobs are expanding and going unfilled. We are seeing a labor market in which skilled technical and logistics/supply chain talent is in high demand.feedback

Kim Forrest - Fort Pitt Capital

It just feels like a lot of people are away," but "there have been events that generally drive up trading.feedback

Ryan Detrick - LPL Financial

Strong economic data can't break the fact that late August is one of the sleepier times of the year. Geopolitical worries are still lingering, but with Congress scheduled to get back in session next week, we wouldn't be surprised to see some September volatility starting up quickly.feedback

Elizabeth Webb

The question is whether companies are effectively moving forward a spike in sales or sustainably increasing sales over a longer time window. Move it forward too much, and you risk the same association people have with Christmas creep – that it's a greedy ploy to take advantage of the consumer.feedback

Pam Moody

They're different from regular people – they're costumed characters. But no one is picking on the Santa Clauses, because that would ruin the retail business. It would ruin Christmas for everybody.feedback

Julia Stiles

That time I went camping, nearly eight months pregnant, just to see @nathanielrateliff and the @nightsweatsnc.feedback

Gavin McLeod Valentine

When we treated the supermodel Ashley Graham before last year's Victoria's Secret show, she had 37,000 likes – but more significantly, there were 4.8 million views of the video she posted. We saw a 20 per cent increase in sales of products and treatments, which meant Intraceuticals had its strongest Christmas sales to date.feedback

José Mourinho - Manchester United

I just think he will be an extra man for us in the second part of the season. Normally, we say January, after Christmas. But I have no idea at all. The right way is not to think about it, and just let him do his work step by step and come back when he is really ready. We are delighted Zlatan is on the road to recovery and we are equally delighted to have his ambition and experience back with us. After his contribution last season he deserves our trust and we will be patient waiting for him to return. I have no doubt that he will be important in the second part of the season.feedback

Shania Twain

You want to know the truth about this story? I've never told this before. I'm going to say it now. I remember I had a girlfriend visiting me and it was near Christmas and we were baking cookies. I was writing this album and there was a scandal of (Pitt) and Gwyneth (Paltrow) where there were naked photos of him. And this was like all the rage. I'm like, Well, that don't impress me much.' I mean, what is all the fuss? We see people naked every day. That's really what I thought.feedback

Shania Twain

You want to know the truth about this story? I remember I had a girl friend visiting me and it was near Christmas and we were baking cookies.feedback

Frank Lampard

I expect the English teams to have one or two in the semi-final. Definitely, it is time to see an English club compete. There are no excuses for me. Christmas, having no break? Physical league? Not good enough.feedback

Shania Twain

You want to know the truth about this story? I've never told this before. I'm going to say it now. I remember I had a girl friend visiting me and it was near Christmas and we were baking cookies. I was writing this album and there was a scandal of Pitt and Gwyneth Paltrow where there were naked photos of him in Playgirl magazine, which Pitt later successfully sued for publishing the paparazzi photos. And this was like all the rage. I just thought 'I don't know what all the fuss is about.' I'm like, well that don't impress me much, I mean what is all the fuss.feedback

Sunny Lee

I noticed that the people I was eating with, whether they knew Korean food or not, would always light up when the banchan came. It was like Christmas.feedback

Raphael Chaskalson

Half Man Half Biscuit once produced a song called 'All I Want For Christmas Is A Dukla Prague Away Kit'. This got me thinking – how many other football clubs have been referenced by punk (or any other genre) bands?feedback

Graeme Le Saux

I think it goes all the way back to last Christmas when he tried to leave then. I thought that the club, manager and players handled that situation really well because they managed to not let it detract from what they were doing in the league and not affect anyone.feedback

Robert Wolders

On the last Christmas, she asked a friend to buy three special winter coats: for Givenchy, [her son] Sean and me. She said, Please think of me when you wear them.' Later on, when we went to bed, she said, It was the most beautiful Christmas I ever had.feedback

David Hamilton

It's a great apartment for entertaining. We've had sit-down dinners for 70. Until recently, we had an annual Christmas party with 300 people. It's perfectly set up for that.feedback

Corey Struve Talbott

My sister [Katie] was like, I have to tell you something too. I'm pregnant too and I haven't been telling anyone for two weeks to surprise everyone on Christmas morning. I almost passed out.feedback

Colin Jost

Missing Scaramucci was sort of like missing Christmas. There's always a chance. It will be a little looser than normal. It's summer and our brains aren't really working yet, so it will be a little looser. Michael wants to do Hawaiian shirts.feedback

As creator and re-inventor of some of the most memorable stories and characters in recent history, ranging from Marvel's The Avengers to Millarworld's Kick-Ass, Kingsman, Wanted and Reborn franchises, Mark is as close as you can get to a modern day Stan Lee. The moment Lucy and I walked into Netflix's headquarters in California last Christmas we knew this was where we wanted to be. It instantly felt like home and the team around that table felt like people who would help us take Millarworld's characters and turn them into global powerhouses.feedback

Richard Branson - Virgin Group

It was Christmas time. It became known as the BA Christmas bonus – we distributed it to all our staff equally.feedback

Betsy Wolfe

It has been quite the dream and quite the journey. (There was lots of Christmas candy strewn about.) Understandably, she embraced the opportunity to move to a tiny studio in a luxury high-rise on Wall Street.feedback

I now play the role of the Ghost of Christmas Past as the city and its exciting new development passes me by.feedback

Job cuts have slowed significantly as we reach mid-year. This month's total was the lowest July total since 23,238 cuts were recorded in July 1995. Maybe some of these hiring announcements are just some of the exuberance that comes late in an expansion. But it may also be that some of the decision makers who decide whether to build a new plant or launch a new product or hire new people are becoming more comfortable that the recession is not imminent.feedback

While retailers are cutting the most jobs this year, those companies are also announcing the most hiring. New retail jobs could be going to places like fulfillment and distribution centers.feedback

The alternative might have been to have had no Doctor Who at all between Christmas 2015 and the autumn of 2018.feedback

That's it – Christmas special, last chance to see Bill. But, I mean, hey, it's Doctor Who, so never say never!feedback

MacKenzie Bezos

I have firsthand knowledge of many of the events. … I worked with him and many others represented in the converted garage, the basement warehouse closet, the barbecue-scented offices, the Christmas-rush distribution centers, and the door-desk filled conference rooms in the early years of Amazon's history. Jeff and I have been married for 20 years.feedback

Stephen Colbert

On my honor, I will do my best to make a tremendous amount of money and buy a sex yacht like the old guy the president knows. To keep myself physically strong with golf and steak, and refer all questions to outside council. Merry Christmas.feedback

Andrew Roussos

He "nodded, and that was it. That's all that was said really. You couldn't go out with Saffie without having fun, but her dream was to be famous. It was her everything. And we bought her the tickets for Christmas, she was counting the days, the seconds.feedback

Andrew Reiner

I arrived at Grant Park at 9 a.m., and was able to spin just one Pokéstop. I talked to dozens of people either playing Pokémon Go, or attempting to, and they are all having issues. Grant Park's numerous Pokéstops are lit up like Christmas Trees, and Unown is spawning, but few people can catch anything before the app crashes. AT&T users are apparently faring the worst, while Sprint has the best performance, which is still hardly playable. I even logged onto the press wi-fi at the event, and the app won't launch. It's getting crushed by players.feedback

That is not wise ... because it becomes a Christmas tree, everybody wants to hang something onto the Christmas tree.feedback

Lewis Hamilton

In terms of contracts and stuff, I can't really say what's going to happen six months from now. Right now, I love driving. I'm just saying that you can't say what frame of mind I'm going to be in come Christmas time. Hopefully it's a really good one with a fourth title.feedback

Lauren Graham

I always said, while we were doing it, that I couldn't see more episodes in that form. Five years from now do you have A Very Gilmore Christmas? Maybe, but there's no reason anymore except enjoyment. And, actually, I think there's far more risk to continue – you run the risk of disappointing people.feedback

Susie Landau Finch

The Reiners were my parents best friends and when I was little Carl, Estelle and Rob and Mel Brooks would be over and there were all these funny jokes. Every Thanksgiving and Christmas actors were coming over and improving and it was a lot of fun.feedback

Bella Thorne

Charlie saw an old new article and he didn't look at the date, and the date is old, and it's about me and Ty. I am talking about how we both have that much family and were spending Christmas together, dah, dah, dah. Christmas is about to come at this point, so in Charlie's defense ,when he read it not reading the date, it sounded like I'm talking about me and Ty still being together. He didn't even text me though or talk to me about it.feedback

Janet Srodzinski

It's a horrible, sweet, sickly smell, a mix of bedding, chicken droppings, goodness only knows what. It's weekends as well, 24/7. On Christmas Day 2015 I went out on to my terrace and was almost sick, the smell was dreadful all day. I pray for north winds now.feedback

Melisse Hinkle

The risk of waiting too long is fairly straightforward: you're likely to pay more. That's not to say there won't be one-off fare sales across travel newsletters and social media channels, but this is a time of high travel demand so there isn't much incentive for airlines to offer deals for holiday season travel.feedback

George Hobica - Airfarewatchdog.com

Start tracking prices as they go up and down – and they will certainly go up and down.feedback

Melisse Hinkle

By and large, the holiday season is the most expensive time to fly to destinations large and small, particularly to ones in the U.S. This is prime travel time no matter where you are going, and so the need to plan ahead holds true for smaller markets as well.feedback

Andrew Ference

My girls, Ava and Stella, and my wife, Krista, however do deserve a proper thanks and my infinite gratitude. They tended my broken bones and bruised ego more times than I can count and gave me unending love and support even when I missed a Christmas concert for a road trip.feedback

Rachel Brand

She responded to that by leaning forward and gritting her teeth. He panicked, went to the arm chair and picked her up and frogmarched her to the door to get her away from him. His intention was to put her outside and slam the door. He held her arms, then she was on the floor.feedback

Mark Jennens

After being told I'm stupid for trying to sort Christmas dinner out I just lost it and went to chuck her out of the door. That is the last time you speak to me like that. His intention was to put her outside and slam the door. He held her arms, then she was on the floor.feedback

Steve Green is going to be in charge of that thing, come hell or high water. Keep in mind the Greens are successful merchants to the middle class. They've always been marketing silk flowers and fake Christmas trees to the middle class, and it's made them rich. Their instincts tell them that thousands of people are going to get on buses in Cincinnati, Ohio, to go see it, and they're probably right.feedback

Peder Tuborgh - Arla Foods

We know that as an industry, I know that from our forecasting. It is going to play out differently in different markets. The first sign we will see of it is that the price of butter rises very sharply. At the moment we are trying to get as much butter and cream out of our producers.feedback

Jillian Harris

I've seriously ALWAYS wanted to get engaged on Christmas morning and Justin always thought it was cheesy so the fact that he thought it was a silly idea I thought for SURE it wasn't going to happen. … Even though I knew Justin thought it was cheesy it didn't stop me from pressuring him every single Christmas to do it!! It was everything I dreamed of but nothing I had expected.feedback

Cole Escola

We were billing it as 'All About Eve' meets 'Blackfish'. We're also working on this idea that's 'The Crucible' meets Christmas: witches and snow and crazy teenage girls and decorating the tree.feedback

Some companies are not making their layoffs this year, which they might have done if the labor pool wasn't so stretched, especially for skilled labor.feedback

Jillian Harris

The night before I had been sent some macaroons to the room and I wanted to take a photo of them the next morning so I left them on the table over night. Justin's plan was that he would put the ring box in the macaroon box and then get me to open it up! Pretty easy task, right? Wrong. LOL!!feedback

I finally crawled my ass out of bed and grabbed the box … I mean it's Christmas morning and all, if he wants me to get him a macaroon, I'll get him a damn macaroon.feedback

Jillian Harris

So here I am …. sitting in my underwear on the couch and I open up the macaroon box to find a jewelry box … And then I opened the box … I just remember staring at the ring and being so confused and thinking it was a joke or that I was being punked … and then it hit me … HOLY S– … THIS IS HAPPENING. NOW. ON CHRISTMAS MORNING!!! HOLY F–!!!!! HE DID IT!!!! OMG OMG OMG … GET THE BABY, I'M NOT DRESSED, I LOOK LIKE A DISASTER, OMG HE IS PROPOSING, SAY YES SAY YES … WHERE'S THE BABY! LOL …. It was everything I dreamed of but nothing I had expected.feedback

Jillian Harris

The ring is EXACTLY what I wanted … it's simple and classic with a moderate size diamond, I didn't want anything too big and flashy! This was about the time I fully lost it … I was crying, swearing, laughing … I was in total shock and disbelief and I was so freaking HAPPY. I honestly couldn't believe that I had a ring on my finger that morning … I felt so ridiculously grateful for that whole year between purchasing our new home, having Leo and then THIS! OMG!!!feedback

You couldn't be out with Saffie without having fun, but her dream was to be famous. It was her everything and we bought her the tickets for Christmas. She was just counting the days, the seconds and it was just Ariana Grande until nine, 10 o'clock at night. And she would sing and dance every single song.feedback

George Newhouse

Over a decade ago the Department of Immigration were criticised for acting like a bunch of cowboys because of their failure to implement due process and to make proper investigations – all because they were under pressure to deport people and please their political masters.feedback

George Newhouse

It doesn't surprise me in the slightest if the Turnbull government and Peter Dutton are going back to those bad old days. While we don't know the details of these two new cases, whoever they are and whatever they are alleged to have done, they are Australian citizens. To wrongfully detain two citizens on Christmas Island is a worrying sign that the department may be out of control once again.feedback

Jason Kingsley

We submit the game to the hardware manufacturers probably four months before the actual street date. A lot of consumers don't realise the game they're playing at Christmas was probably finished in the summer. You've got a team of experts sitting around waiting for release. What do you do with them? The simple answer is they keep working on that project because as we test it and as we play it more we might find obscure bugs or little bits that need to be fixed.feedback

Rand Paul

I don't think we're getting anywhere with the bill we have. We're at an impasse. The bill is just being lit up like a Christmas tree full of billion-dollar ornaments, and it's not repeal. I think you can get 52 Republicans for clean repeal.feedback

I wasn't able to do it. My schedule clashed. I was filming Iron Fist for six-to-seven months and they wouldn't give me the time off. [ GoT] was so massive for me in terms of my career and building my profile and as an experience in itself, I wanted to return. [A GoT producer explained], It's really important that you come back otherwise your character will just disappear.' So I spoke to Marvel and I managed to get a release.

New cases among gay men in London have fallen for the first time. We’re turning a corner, but there’s a lot o do to bring attitudes and awareness up to date. In December 1986 my partner, Brian, fell ill. We were spending the Christmas break at our holiday home in Suffolk. Brian spent all of Christmas Day in bed, and on Boxing Day morning I could tell he wasn’t getting better. I called a doctor friend to get his opinion. He took one look at Brian and said we must take him to hospital straight away.feedback
