Who is Alastair Campbell, what job did he do and who's his famous comedian daughter?
Alastair Campbell has found fame away from his former role as an adviser in Downing Street after becoming a prominent podcaster.He is also a broadcaster, with his latest programme - Make Me Prime Minister - airing on Channel 4 tonight (September 27) at 9.15pm.Described by Radio Times as “The Apprentice does politics”, the show puts 12 Brits who think they have what it takes to run the country through their paces.Alongside Conservative peer Baroness Sayeeda Warsi, the pair will put the dozen candidates for the top job through a series of tasks designed to test their leadership skills, decision-making, resilience and integrity.From his journalist beginnings to top of the podcast charts, here is a look at the anti-Brexit campaigner's career.Alastair Campbell is best known for his role as former British prime minister Tony Blair’s spokesman, press secretary and director of communications - aka chief spin doctor.He had been a journalist first at the Daily Mirror before moving to the now-defunct newspaper Today, where he was poached by Blair in 1994 to run the Labour Party's press operation following his election as leader of the opposition.Campbell was part of the team that modernised Labour and helped the party win a landslide at the 1997 general election.After the death of Princess Diana later that year, the spin doctor assisted the then-prime minister in his speech in which she was dubbed the “People’s Princess”.His time in Downing Street was dogged by his involvement in what was later labelled the “Dodgy Dossier” in February 2003, in which it claimed Iraq leader Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.Mr Campbell was accused of "sexing up" the document, as weapons were never found before or after the 2003 Allied

Prince Andrew 'furious with Charles and William for blocking his public comeback'
Prince Charles, 73, and Prince William, 39, both reportedly stepped in to prevent Prince Andrew's return to public life at Royal Ascot and the Order of the Garter Ceremony.Andrew, 62, is understood to be enraged with his elder brother and nephew, who it is believed persuaded the Queen, 96, to stop Andrew from attending the full Order of the Garter Ceremony, which was presided over by his mother at Windsor Castle earlier this month.Instead, he was only seen at some parts of the Knights of the Garter Ceremony.Buckingham Palace reported that the Duke of York's absence from the Windsor Castle procession and Order of the Garter service was a "family decision".He did join the Queen at the formal investiture of new members of the Order of the Garter - including Tony Blair and Charles' wife the Duchess of Cornwall - and at the lunch afterwards.But his alleged bid to return to Royal duties has apparently been met with resistance from the two direct heirs to the throne, with Her Majesty supposedly telling Andrew to keep out of sight "for his own good". The Queen also missed Royal Ascot for the first time during her reign and was replaced in Saturday's Royal procession by the Duke of Kent, Andrew's eldest daughter Princess Beatrice and her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi.
