    <description>&lt;div&gt;&lt;img src=”https://cdn.images.express.co.uk/img/dynamic/143/750×445/1420733.jpg” class=”ff-og-image-inserted”&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div readability=”54″&gt;&lt;p&gt;The first major update of the year for Clash of Clans will include Town Hall 14, which will include additional Tower Defence, Hero, and Troop levels.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;Developers Supercell has confirmed that Clash of Clans Town Hall Level 14 will be Jungle-themed, complete with ancient pictograms and hieroglyphs.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;And while plenty of stuff is getting upgraded, SuperCell has also announced what new features are coming in the Spring patch.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;This will include Starter Challenges, which will make progressing between early Town Halls less grindy.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;A message from Supercell explains: “Starter Challenges are a new way for players between Town Hall 2-6 to speed up their progress through a variety of Challenges similar to the Silver/Gold Pass.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;“These new Challenges are unlocked with each Town Hall level and completing each Challenge will provide more Challenges to complete.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div readability=”47″&gt;&lt;p&gt;“There are some deliciously tempting rewards that can be earned on the Starter Pass. From Rune of Gold to a Book of Building, the Starter Pass reward track has up to 5000 points for players to complete.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;“Once a player upgrades to Town Hall 7, all unclaimed rewards are automatically collected. When claiming a resource reward if the player only has enough storage space for some of the reward they can now take whatever amount of the reward will fit and some gems. The amount of gems scales from a max 5 down to 1 based on what proportion of the resources were taken. E.g. if a player takes 20% of resources they will receive 4 gems (80% of 5).”&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;Other early game changes are being made to help Villages grow faster, with a series of reductions for various upgrade times and upgrade costs.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;This will include the following upgrades:&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;Reduced Training Times&lt;/p&gt;&lt;ul&gt;&lt;li&gt;Ice Golem: 360 seconds → 300 seconds&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Witch: 360 seconds → 240 seconds&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Super Witch: 1200 seconds → 800 seconds&lt;/li&gt;&lt;/ul&gt;&lt;p&gt;Wall cost reduction&lt;/p&gt;&lt;ul&gt;&lt;li&gt;Level 12 Wall: 3M Gold/Elixir → 2M Gold/Elixir&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Level 13 Wall: 5M Gold/Elixir → 4M Gold/Elixir&lt;/li&gt;&lt;/ul&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div readability=”38″&gt;&lt;p&gt;Meanwhile, at the other end of the scale, here is what will be unlocking with Town Hall 14:&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;Upgrading to Town Hall 14 unlocks&lt;/p&gt;&lt;ul&gt;&lt;li&gt;25x Wall pieces&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;1x Air Bomb&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;1x Seeking Air Mine&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;1x Skeleton Trap&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;1x Bomb&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;1x Giant Bomb&lt;/li&gt;&lt;/ul&gt;&lt;p&gt;New Defense/Building/Trap Levels&lt;/p&gt;&lt;ul&gt;&lt;li&gt;Level 12 Laboratory&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Level 10 Clan Castle&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Level 15 Gold Storage&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Level 15 Elixir Storage&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Level 9 Dark Elixir Storage&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Level 20 Cannon&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Level 13 Hidden Tesla&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Level 9 Bomb Tower&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Level 8 Inferno Tower&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Level 5 Eagle Artillery&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Level 3 Scattershot&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Level 10 Bomb&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Level 15 Wall&lt;/li&gt;&lt;/ul&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div readability=”38″&gt;&lt;p&gt;New Hero Levels&lt;/p&gt;&lt;ul&gt;&lt;li&gt;Barbarian King Level 80 → Iron Fist Level 16&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Archer Queen Level 80 → Royal Cloak Level 16&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Grand Warden Level 55 → Eternal Tome + Life Aura Level 11&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Royal Champion Level 30 → Seeking Shield Level 6&lt;/li&gt;&lt;/ul&gt;&lt;p&gt;We don’t know exactly when this new Clash of Clans update is going to be available to download but with this news being shared now, we could see something announced between April 12 and 14.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;More news is being shared later today, which could mean a big launch reveal for Clash of Clans fans.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;&lt;a href=”https://blockads.fivefilters.org”&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/strong&gt; &lt;a href=”https://blockads.fivefilters.org/acceptable.html”&gt;(Why?)&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;</description>

    <title>Sandie Shaw now: The barefoot British Eurovision champion who was a star at 17</title>

    <description>&lt;div class=”jw-player-container”&gt;&lt;h3 class=”jw-player-title”&gt;Sandie Shaw performs on Eurovision in 1967&lt;/h3&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=”text-description” readability=”39″&gt;&lt;p&gt;Not only was Sandie Shaw the first-ever British winner of the Eurovision Song Contest, when Puppet On A String topped the UK charts it made her the first British female singer ever to have three number one records. She was only 20 at the time and, shockingly, her manager was already regarding her as a pop has-been ready for a TV light entertainment makeover. The 1960s were a brutal time for teenage female singers. Two years later, Lulu would follow her down the Eurovision path at exactly the same age. No wonder they both have very mixed feelings about the Contest.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=”box two-related-articles clear”&gt; &lt;header&gt;&lt;h3&gt;Related articles&lt;/h3&gt; &lt;/header&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=”text-description” readability=”57.680672268908″&gt;&lt;p&gt;When she was 17, Sandra Ann Goodrich&amp;nbsp;came second in a talent contest at the Ilford Palais in Essex and the prize was to appear at a London charity contest. Singer Adam Faith, already a huge star, was there and recommended her to his manager Eve Taylor, who repackaged her as Sandie Shaw and got her a record deal.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;Her second single, a cover of (There’s) Always Something There to Remind Me,&amp;nbsp;was a number one smash, followed by number three hit Girl Don’t Come and another number one, Long Live Love, in June 1965.&amp;nbsp;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;She also released music across Europe, singing in French, Italian, German and Spanish, which would come in handy a few years later.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;Sandie was still only 18, but her gamine looks, trademark fringe, barefoot bohemia (actually the result of ‘inherited misshapen feet) and natural style made her an instant “It girl” and fashion icon.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;READ MORE:&amp;nbsp;&lt;a data-link-tracking=”InArticle|Link” href=”https://www.express.co.uk/entertainment/music/1418646/Freddie-Mercury-cat-names-how-many-Delilah-Oscar-Mary-Austin-home-Garden-Lodge-die” data-name=”Freddie Mercury cats: Incredible pics of last days in bed with Delilah” target=”_blank”&gt;Freddie Mercury cats: Incredible last-ever picture of Queen star shows him in bed with Delilah&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=”photo changeSpace”&gt;&lt;p class=”withoutCaption”&gt;&lt;picture&gt; &lt;source type=”image/webp” srcset=”https://cdn.images.express.co.uk/img/page/preloaderbig.gif” data-srcset=”https://cdn.images.express.co.uk/img/dynamic/35/590x/Sandie-Shaw-then-and-now-1420722.webp?r=1617924471416″&gt; &lt;img class=”lazy” src=”https://cdn.images.express.co.uk/img/dynamic/35/590x/Sandie-Shaw-then-and-now-1420722.jpg?r=1617924471416″ alt=”Sandie Shaw then and now” width=”590″ height=”350″&gt;&lt;/picture&gt;&lt;meta itemprop=”image” content=”https://cdn.images.express.co.uk/img/dynamic/35/590x/Sandie-Shaw-then-and-now-1420722.jpg?r=1617924471416″&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;span class=”newsCaption”&gt;Sandie Shaw then and now &lt;span class=”caption”&gt;(Image: GETTY)&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=”photo changeSpace”&gt;&lt;p class=”withoutCaption”&gt;&lt;picture&gt; &lt;source type=”image/webp” srcset=”https://cdn.images.express.co.uk/img/page/preloaderbig.gif” data-srcset=”https://cdn.images.express.co.uk/img/dynamic/35/590x/secondary/Sandie-Shaw-with-Adam-Faith-in-1964-2993398.webp?r=1617924471462″&gt; &lt;img class=”lazy” src=”https://cdn.images.express.co.uk/img/dynamic/35/590x/secondary/Sandie-Shaw-with-Adam-Faith-in-1964-2993398.jpg?r=1617924471462″ alt=”Sandie Shaw with Adam Faith in 1964″ title=”Sandie Shaw with Adam Faith in 1964″ width=”590″ height=”492″&gt;&lt;/picture&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;span class=”newsCaption”&gt;Sandie Shaw with Adam Faith in 1964 &lt;span class=”caption”&gt;(Image: GETTY)&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=”photo changeSpace”&gt;&lt;p class=”withoutCaption”&gt;&lt;picture&gt; &lt;source type=”image/webp” srcset=”https://cdn.images.express.co.uk/img/page/preloaderbig.gif” data-srcset=”https://cdn.images.express.co.uk/img/dynamic/35/590x/secondary/Sandie-Shaw-in-1965-aged-18-2993393.webp?r=1617924471531″&gt; &lt;img class=”lazy” src=”https://cdn.images.express.co.uk/img/dynamic/35/590x/secondary/Sandie-Shaw-in-1965-aged-18-2993393.jpg?r=1617924471531″ alt=”Sandie Shaw in 1965 aged 18″ title=”Sandie Shaw in 1965 aged 18″ width=”590″ height=”738″&gt;&lt;/picture&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;span class=”newsCaption”&gt;Sandie Shaw in 1965 aged 18 &lt;span class=”caption”&gt;(Image: GETTY)&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=”clear rma” readability=”15.432352941176″&gt;&lt;div class=”text-description” readability=”53″&gt;&lt;p&gt;She was part of the trendsetting in-crowd in London and was horrified when Taylor brought up the subject of Eurovision.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;Even in the 1960’s, Eurovision was regarded with wariness by serious musicians and Sandie had ambitions to write and produce, and to develop a more progressive sound.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;However, her personal life had suddenly plunged her into notoriety and she was coerced into taking part.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;In 1966, the teenager was named in the divorce proceedings of&amp;nbsp;­television executive Douglas Murdoch and his model wife Veronica Sands.&amp;nbsp;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;Murdoch produced the music show Ready Steady Go!

Despite Sandie personally thinking it was ridiculous, Puppet On A String won by a landslide and she was packed off to compete in Vienna.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;On the night, there was even a mishap with her microphone at the start of the song but the Essex lass explained why she refused to let anything, from technical problems to her own feelings about the song, stand in her way.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;DON’T MISS&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;br&gt;&lt;strong&gt;&lt;a data-link-tracking=”InArticle|Link” href=”https://www.express.co.uk/entertainment/music/1397523/Tom-Jones-The-Voice-John-Lennon-Welsh-The-Beatles-Elvis-music-Paul-McCartney” data-name=”Tom Jones: ‘John Lennon called me a Welsh p**f and I nearly hit him'” target=”_blank”&gt;Tom Jones: ‘John Lennon called me a Welsh p**f and I nearly hit him’&lt;br&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;a data-link-tracking=”InArticle|Link” href=”https://www.express.co.uk/entertainment/music/1419594/Elvis-Presley-Graceland-upstairs-Graceland-attic-entrance-Elvis-cousin-Billy-Smith” data-name=”Elvis Presley: Graceland attic entrance described by The King’s cousin” target=”_blank”&gt;Elvis Presley: Graceland secret attic entrance described by The King’s cousin&lt;br&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;a data-link-tracking=”InArticle|Link” href=”https://www.express.co.uk/entertainment/films/1419296/Honor-Blackman-Avengers-James-Bond-girl-Pussy-Galore-Sean-Connery-died-married” data-name=”Honor Blackman: Bond Girl was ‘no bimbo’ and a match for Sean Connery ” target=”_blank”&gt;Honor Blackman: Bond Girl was ‘no bimbo’ and a match for Sean Connery&amp;nbsp;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=”p402_hide htmlappend”&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;iframe width=”560″ height=”315″ src=”https://www.youtube.com/embed/4xnzPnyyWbY” title=”YouTube video player” frameborder=”0″ allow=”accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture” allowfullscreen&gt;[embedded content]&lt;/iframe&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=”photo changeSpace”&gt;&lt;p class=”withoutCaption”&gt;&lt;picture&gt; &lt;source type=”image/webp” srcset=”https://cdn.images.express.co.uk/img/page/preloaderbig.gif” data-srcset=”https://cdn.images.express.co.uk/img/dynamic/35/590x/secondary/Sandie-Shaw-in-1966-2993394.webp?r=1617924471687″&gt; &lt;img class=”lazy” src=”https://cdn.images.express.co.uk/img/dynamic/35/590x/secondary/Sandie-Shaw-in-1966-2993394.jpg?r=1617924471687″ alt=”Sandie Shaw in 1966″ title=”Sandie Shaw in 1966″ width=”590″ height=”738″&gt;&lt;/picture&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;span class=”newsCaption”&gt;Sandie Shaw in 1966: Her feet made wearing shoes uncomfortable &lt;span class=”caption”&gt;(Image: GETTY)&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=”text-description” readability=”47″&gt;&lt;p&gt;If you watch the video, you will see that the microphone is not switched on when she starts singing.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;Sandie later said: “&lt;span&gt;I was so focused on delivering the best performance for the UK that I would have carried on even if the stage collapsed! I was also very relaxed with the European audience as I had already worked there for many years and I felt everyone’s support and friendship.”&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;The UK entry obliterated the competition, pulling in 47 votes to the second-place French and Irish on 20 votes.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;Sandie returned a national hero, married fashion designer Jeff Banks in March 1968 (they had a daughter, Gracie in 1971) and launched her own fashion label.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=”photo changeSpace”&gt;&lt;p class=”withoutCaption”&gt;&lt;picture&gt; &lt;source type=”image/webp” srcset=”https://cdn.images.express.co.uk/img/page/preloaderbig.gif” data-srcset=”https://cdn.images.express.co.uk/img/dynamic/35/590x/secondary/Sandie-Shaw-at-the-Chelsea-Flower-Show-in-2014-2993400.webp?r=1617924471770″&gt; &lt;img class=”lazy” src=”https://cdn.images.express.co.uk/img/dynamic/35/590x/secondary/Sandie-Shaw-at-the-Chelsea-Flower-Show-in-2014-2993400.jpg?r=1617924471770″ alt=”Sandie Shaw at the Chelsea Flower Show in 2014″ title=”Sandie Shaw at the Chelsea Flower Show in 2014″ width=”590″ height=”842″&gt;&lt;/picture&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;span class=”newsCaption”&gt;Sandie Shaw at the Chelsea Flower Show in 2014 &lt;span class=”caption”&gt;(Image: GETTY )&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=”text-description” readability=”49″&gt;&lt;p&gt;In the early 1970s, Sandie’s music career as a pop princess dried up and her record contract expired in 1972.

But to be honest, I had to work because my husband lost all our money.”&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;Sandie appeared on TV entertainment shows, and tried her hand at stage acting with roles as Ophelia in Hamlet and the lead in St Joan.&amp;nbsp;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;Her marriage ended in 1978 and, broke, she temporarily took a job as a waitress.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=”photo changeSpace”&gt;&lt;p class=”withoutCaption”&gt;&lt;picture&gt; &lt;source type=”image/webp” srcset=”https://cdn.images.express.co.uk/img/page/preloaderbig.gif” data-srcset=”https://cdn.images.express.co.uk/img/dynamic/35/590x/secondary/Sandie-Shaw-with-her-MBE-in-2018-2993402.webp?r=1617924471830″&gt; &lt;img class=”lazy” src=”https://cdn.images.express.co.uk/img/dynamic/35/590x/secondary/Sandie-Shaw-with-her-MBE-in-2018-2993402.jpg?r=1617924471830″ alt=”Sandie Shaw with her MBE in 2018″ title=”Sandie Shaw with her MBE in 2018″ width=”590″ height=”443″&gt;&lt;/picture&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;span class=”newsCaption”&gt;Sandie Shaw with her MBE in 2018 &lt;span class=”caption”&gt;(Image: GETTY)&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=”clear rma” readability=”13.467296511628″&gt;&lt;div class=”text-description” readability=”49″&gt;&lt;p&gt;In 1982, Sandie married Nick Pyke, one of the co-founders of Virgin Records. As well as two children, the marriage resulted in a creative period when she worked with major stars like Chrissie Hynde and The Smiths. Her version of their song Hand In Glove returned her to the charts in April 1984.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;Since then, she has recorded albums and film soundtrack thems sporadically, at her own choosing, released her&amp;nbsp;autobiography&amp;nbsp;The World at My Feet&amp;nbsp;in 1991, and qualified as a psychotherapist in 1994.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;IN 1995 she married her third husband, psychologist Tony Bedford and they set up the Arts Clinic to counsel musicians and performers.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=”photo changeSpace”&gt;&lt;p class=”withoutCaption”&gt;&lt;picture&gt; &lt;source type=”image/webp” srcset=”https://cdn.images.express.co.uk/img/page/preloaderbig.gif” data-srcset=”https://cdn.images.express.co.uk/img/dynamic/35/590x/secondary/Sandie-Shaw-in-2018-2993403.webp?r=1617924471908″&gt; &lt;img class=”lazy” src=”https://cdn.images.express.co.uk/img/dynamic/35/590x/secondary/Sandie-Shaw-in-2018-2993403.jpg?r=1617924471908″ alt=”Sandie Shaw in 2018″ title=”Sandie Shaw in 2018″ width=”590″ height=”758″&gt;&lt;/picture&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;span class=”newsCaption”&gt;Sandie Shaw in 2018 &lt;span class=”caption”&gt;(Image: GETTY)&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=”text-description” readability=”45″&gt;&lt;p&gt;Sandie enjoyed yet another renaissance in 2010 when she sang on the soundtrack to the film Made In Dagenham and went on tour with Jools Holland in 2011.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;In 2017 she was awarded an MBE for services to music. And those famous feet?&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;Back in 2007, Sandie revealed that while she would never have plastic surgery, she had had corrective surgery on her feet: “I have always wanted beautiful feet. My husband says that, when I was being created, the design team did a great job until they got down to my ankles.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;”I couldn’t wear really nice shoes. And now… they’re lovely. I love my feet.”&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;&lt;a href=”https://blockads.fivefilters.org”&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/strong&gt; &lt;a href=”https://blockads.fivefilters.org/acceptable.html”&gt;(Why?)&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;</description>
