Byline: Darren Kelly

JENNIFER Aniston is still everyone's favourite all-American, according to an Independence Day TV poll.

Showbusiness news show Entertainment Tonight asked viewers to vote for their favourite red, white and blue superstars - and Aniston's fans came out in their thousands to put the former Friends star at the top of the list.

The actress' ex-husband, Brad Pitt, also made the top ten list but only just.

The Troy star shares 10th place with Keanu Reeves on the new poll. Aniston's one-time love rival, Angelina Jolie, also makes the list - at number eight.

TV STAR Oprah Winfrey is set to give South Africa a huge financial and tourism boost at the beginning of 2007 by planning an exclusive New Year's Eve party there.

According to Winfrey insiders, the talk-show queen is inviting 100 of her closest celebrity pals to ring in 2007 with her and Nelson Mandela in South Africa.

BRITNEY Spears hopes to quash rumours that her marriage to Kevin Federline is on the brink of collapse by signing up for a second season of her hit reality show.

Chaos follows the singer in her everyday life and Spears hopes extending the show will end speculation surrounding her private life.

The last few months have seen the couple plagued by press reports heralding an imminent divorce, as well as criticisms of the Toxic hit-maker's parenting skills.

The 24-year-old, pregnant with her second child, says: "I know that things are fine, but this show will put paid to those rumours finally."

MOVIE stars Sean Penn and Susan Sarandon joined a hunger strike which began on Independence Day outside the White House.

The Deadman Walking co-stars have signed up to the 'rolling fast' which sees protesters giving up food for a day in protest of the war in Iraq, before other participants pick up the cause the following day. Organised by Code Pink, a women's anti-war group, the hunger strike will end on September 21 - International Peace Day.

Organisers hope to bring to attention to the loss of life on both sides of the conflict. Penn and Sarandon will be joined by Willie Nelson and Danny Glover.
