Sir Elton John wants to set Katy Perry up with a new man at his Oscars party tomorrow.
The "Rocket Man" singer is hosting his annual post-Academy Awards bash and is setting up a special singles table, where the likes of Katy - who split from husband Russell Brand in December - can cast their eyes over any eligible hunks.
Heidi Klum - who split from husband Seal in January - and Kim Kardashian - whose marriage ended in October - are also set to be on the table.
"Elton wants this year's party to go with a swing, and be more fun and raucous than in previous years. It was his idea to invite some of the highest profile, newly-single female celebs in town. He thinks it's a great way to put a smile back on their faces - and hopefully land them new men. He got in touch last month to personally offer Heidi and Katy his support, and invite them to his bash. Kim Kardashian also reckons she is ready to start dating again, so it could be a lively evening," a source told the Daily Mirror.
And Elton and his film producer husband David Furnish already have a few men in mind: "They will be given fantastic tables, right beside Elton and his husband David. And they have been told there will be scores of hot, eligible - and straight - young men there. David has one or two director pals who are very interested and Elton is keen to fix them up," the source added.
Rhys Ifans has been accused of assault.
The - who is dating actress Anna Friel - is alleged to have slapped a guest in a late-night argument in a suite at London's five-star St Pancras Renaissance hotel in the early hours of Sunday morning after a pre-BAFTA Awards party.
Theatre producer Adam Spreadbury-Maher - who had been partying with a group of friends including Dominic Cooper at the Groucho club in London's Soho - claims to have seen the 44-year-old star being verbally abusive to his friend before hitting him "quite a few times" in the face.
"I did not know who Rhys was but my friends told me he was a film star and host of the party. They invited us all in and were really lovely and then Rhys went mental and started on my friend. He was slapping him round the face and shoving him. It was pretty terrible. It was completely random. Everyone was having a lovely time. We were invited in and then he just went silly about 20 minutes after we arrived. He made a beeline for him and started shoving him saying, 'What the f**k are you doing here? You're a joker. Who the f**k are you?' He slapped him quite a few times. I think he was trying to make himself feel like a big man. He went nuts. It was as though he was in a bubble and he didn't realise people were watching," the 30-year-old creative director told the Mail on Sunday newspaper.
"You know you're a stoner when your friends make you a 'Bob Miley' cake. You know you smoke way too much f––ing weed."

Pippa Middleton was not regarded as "wife material" by Alex Loudon's family.
According to a friend of the younger sister of Britain's Duchess of Cambridge, the former cricketer's mother and father, James and Jane, didn't see the pair's relationship - which recently ended after 18 months together - lasting "long-term."
"Alex's parents were welcoming but they were always somewhat lukewarm about the relationship. They didn't see Pippa as 'wife material.' James and his wife Jane both come from very good families. Pippa is very sweet but she is socially ambitious - all her friends are so 'trophy posh' it's ridiculous. They didn't honestly see Alex and Pippa's relationship as a long-term thing. James and Jane are very old-fashioned and prefer to keep things low-key," a friend said.
Lindsay Lohan crashed a dinner party thrown by her latest boyfriend in order to confront his estranged wife. The Mean Girls star has recently been spotted kissing Dream hotel owner Vikram Chatwal at his home in New York, but was unimpressed when Priya Sachdev arrived from India with their daughter. Lindsay was determined to make it clear that she is the main woman in Vikram's life.
"Lindsay found out Vikram was hosting a dinner at the Dream, and turned up with a friend at the hotel's Electric Room, waiting for him. That's when the trouble started. Priya was very dignified, but Lindsay was so rude. She acted as if she'd had no idea Vikram was married, and tried to make it clear that Vikram was her friend. Others had to step in to calm things down." Lindsay has been staying at Vikram's house and is believed to have even moved her hairdresser in. However, she was told she had to leave a few days ago before Priya returned to the US top avoid any unpleasantness. Vikram's father Sant Singh has tried to order Lindsay out numerous times. Vikram's family worry that Lindsay is bad news and want him to stay away from her," a source revealed.
Playboy boss Hugh Hefner has been invited to Gene Simmons' wedding. Hefner has received an invitation to attend the nuptials of the KISS rocker and his fiancee Shannon Tweed on October 1.
Hugh is very excited for the couple, who have been in a relationship for 28 years, because Gene and the former Playboy Playmate met at his home. "I received a wedding invitation from PMOY Shannon Tweed & rock star Gene Simmons today. They met at the Mansion. (sic)," he wrote on his Twitter.
The 85-year-old business mogul - who is famous for throwing wild parties at his Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles - also revealed he was visited by his ex-girlfriend Holly Madison on Thursday. The 31-year-old blonde beauty decided to drop in to see Hugh on her day off from Las Vegas burlesque production Peepshow. "Holly came by & had dinner at the Mansion with GND producer Kevin Burns on the day off from her Vegas show "Peepshow." Good to see her. (sic)" he tweeted.
Lindsay Lohan wants to be remembered for her talent, not her problems. The troubled actress - who has had several stints in rehab and a string of legal problems, most recently serving 35 days house arrest after breaching probation by stealing a necklace - insists she doesn't want to be a "celebrity" and believes people no longer view her as a "real person."
"People in their mind have created who I am and act as if there is no real person inside of me. Just like Marilyn. Marilyn never wanted to be just a celebrity. Neither do I. I had always thought that movie stars were in films that would last forever in your mind. But now the films don't. I don't want to be remembered as someone who just wanted to be photographed, who goes out at night, and gets in trouble. Heath Ledger once said to me, 'It's built you up to knock you down' and that's all it is. Marilyn said she had no foundation. But she said she was really working on it. I've been trying to do the same thing. I believe in myself and I'm a good actress," she said, comparing herself to late screen icon Marilyn Monroe.
Lindsay, 25, says she has always identified with Marilyn - who died in 1962 at the age of 36 - and says the blonde beauty inspired her to always want to appear strong and in control.
Like father, like daughter: Lady Gaga inherited her wild streak from her father. The "Edge of Glory" hitmaker - who famously dressed in a gown made of meat and once hatched out of an egg live on stage - explained her dad Joe hired a stripper to teach her the piano and used to enjoy al fresco romps with random women.
"He was having sex with girls under the boardwalk in New Jersey before he went to see Bruce Springsteen. He saw a lot of himself in me. My first piano teacher was a stripper. My dad told me later. I used to say to her, 'Why do you have such long nails?' She just said, 'Someday you'll understand why.'"
However, the 25-year-old singer credits her father with "kicking her ass" and helping her to stop using cocaine. "I was for sure addicted to coke. I got off it because my father called me out and kicked my ass. I didn't do it with people, I did it alone. But I regret every line I did," she said.
Khloe Kardashian is planning a raunchy bachelorette party for sister Kim. The 30-year-old socialite is set to marry basketball star Kris Humphries later this year and sibling Khloe wants to make her last party as a single woman as tacky as possible because she knows she'll hate it.
"I want to do it as bad as possible because she's so uncomfortable by it, and it's funny. For my bachelorette party, it was so over the top, so I want to be as annoying as possible with the bachelorette thing," Khloe - who married basketball star Lamar Odom in September 2009 - told E! Online.
While she can't wait for her sister to get married, Khloe is unsure if Kim will start trying for a baby straight away. The 26-year-old reality TV star - who has made no secret of her desire to start a family - said, "I don't know. I really don't. If Kim does have a kid soon, I think she's gonna have to slow down so much. So I just don't know if she's ready to slow down that much."
Prince Harry has always been a little less serious than big brother William (who must always remember that one day, he’ll be a king), and he injected plenty of fun into the after-party following the royal wedding. The Prince’s speech was a huge crowd-pleaser, and filled with laughs.
Harry started out on a serious note, telling Prince William that “Our mother would be so very proud of you.” Then he added that he felt sorry for Kate, because she didn’t marry the good-looking brother (himself!). He delivered the speech standing atop a table.
Reports also say that Prince Harry then unbuttoned his shirt and dived into the crowd at the end of his speech. How’s that for royal decorum?
