Madonna moved by furniture van

Madonna arriving at the premiere of W.E. held at the Odeon Kensington, London

Madonna has revealed she was on the verge of giving up on her movie about Wallis Simpson but changed her mind after being given "a sign" - on a removal van.

The pop superstar attended the premiere in London last night of her new film W.E., which she directed.

During an interview with Graham Norton, to be screened later this week, she said she was on the verge of giving up due to frustrations with book rights - until the van encounter convinced her.

"I thought 'are the royal family going to hate my guts for telling this story?'"

Madonna said she was questioning whether to carry on and "doubting everything", but her opinion was changed when she spotted the vehicle.

"The doorbell rang and I answered it in my pyjamas, as I do. There was nobody there but there was a removal van and it said Montague Removal.

"That was her maiden name - and I thought 'right, that's a sign'," the chart queen added.

The singer also revealed her new album, due for release in March, will be called MDNA.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

It's difficult to deal with a highly competitive colleague. Every time you submit work, they try to find ways to outperform you. Although you have no interest in pitting your talent against theirs, this other person thinks very differently. Ignoring them won't be possible. A good way to disarm this pest is to invite them out for coffee. Describe what you've observed and ask for a truce. Irrational people are often thrown off balance when their behaviour is addressed in a direct manner.More
