With just two weeks left until Christmas, retailers are going head to head to provide cut-price quality goods to the growing ranks of festive shoppers. Top of the shops this week is Argos which has just launched its "Biggest ever half-price toy sale". The name is a little misleading and actually means there are more toys than ever before rather than larger savings but there are still dozens of great offers available. Bestseller so far is Disney's Toy Story 3 Ultimate Buzz Lightyear, down from £150 to £74.99.

He has starred in some of the most successful Bollywood films of all time, including last year's truly exceptional, 3 Idiots. It was great meeting Aamir for the first time as we talked about his past, present and future.
