Why are they trending? John Terry, Megan Fox and #AntiSlaveryDay

What are today's trending topics, and why are they popular?

John Terry

The Chelsea captain announced today that he would not appeal against the four-match ban and £220,000 fine imposed by the FA for racially abusing QPR player Anton Ferdinand in October last year. He also publicly apologised for the first time.

Megan Fox

The 26-year-old Hollywood actress revealed the birth of her first son, Noah Shannon Green, today, almost a month after it happened. Noah, whose father is Fox's husband and US television actor Brian Austin Green, was born on 27 September.


October 18 is Anti-Slavery Day in the UK and EU. It aims to raise awareness of modern slavery while campaigning for action to help eliminate it. This year, to coincide with Anti-Slavery Day, the Home Office has released a report revealing that trafficking numbers are rising, with only eight people being convicted for human trafficking last year.
