ZETA'S PARTY POOPER
Michael drags karaoke Cathy off to bed
WE'RE not calling Michael Douglas a bad loser... but being beaten by his wife at golf seems to leave him feeling distinctly under par.
When the 60-year-old's team came off second best to a European side including Catherine Zeta-Jones he turned into a party pooper and plumped for his PJs at 10.30pm .
That left stunning Cathy, 35, free to join her UK team-mates and guests including Robbie WIlliams, Chris Evans and Ant and Dec, creators of the Sky One's All Star Cup, for a sozzled - and, in the case of a raunchy Charlotte Church, steamy - karaoke session.
But Basic Instinct star Michael wanted his wife and mother of two of his children, Dylan and Carys, all to himself.
Our spy at South Wales's lavish Celtic Manor Resort reveals: "Michael Douglas was spotted entering the bar area around 2am yesterday to inform Catherine that it was time for bed.
"And the loved-up lady was happy to go up with her leading man."
However, presenters Jamie Theakston, Kirsty Gallacher and Ian Wright, were among those who merrily continued celebrating their 91-89 last-minute victory over team USA until 5am. And it seems Catherine and Michael were not the only ones with lurve on the brain.
Later Welsh siren Charlotte put on a heck of a floor show - and we don't just mean with her singing skills.
After wowing guests at the Newport venue with Summertime and Bridge Over Troubled Water, the 19-year-old and her perma-tanned rugby hunk beau Gavin Henson rolled around the dancefloor with their tongues down each other's throat.
An onlooker said: "They were at it hammer and tongs.
"They were all over each other. It was quite a display.
"Gav was right on top of her and people didn't know where to look as they got on with their naughty business."
Meanwhile, the karaoke kicked off with media mogul Chris and Ant crooning Fly Me To The Moon.
Cold Feet star James Nesbitt soon grabbed the mic, and after a fantastic Frank Sinatra medley including New York, New York the 39-year-old joked: "This is what I want to be doing.
"Do you think I want to be doing the Yellow f***ing Pages?"
To be fair, he had spent the evening knocking back glass after glass of £95-a-bottle Bollinger champagne.
Let's hope he had a copy of that directory to hand the next morning to look up Alka Seltzer stockists and greasy spoon cafes.
