In Xtra this week...

First published in News

Take a look at our Xtra section which brings you a wide range of feature articles every week.

This week's features include:

CELEBRITY: Agyness Deyn has swapped the catwalk for the cameras as she plays a feisty stripper in Pusher. The Lancashire-born model, who recently married actor Giovanni Ribisi in a surprise wedding, talks about her biggest role to date, how acting is her new focus and why she loves being a wife.

HEALTH: Jess Thom says 'biscuit' up to 16 times a minute and swears involuntarily because she has Tourette's Syndrome. She tells Xtra how she refuses to let it get her down, and how writing a book about her Tourette's has helped her celebrate the creativity and humour of her condition, and explain the challenges it brings to those who don't understand it.

MUSIC: Gaz Coombes is stepping out on his own after years as the frontman in Supergrass. He talks to Xtra about his solo album, released earlier this year, and his forthcoming UK tour.
