EMMA WATSON boards the Hogwarts Express and heads back to college to study creative writing.
I can reveal that the Harry Potter actress has signed up for a part-time Masters course at Oxford.
However, she will only attend a few lectures on site.
Thanks to computer wizardry, Emma, who played Hermione Granger in the films, will complete the majority of her studies online.
After she received scary messages on social media, staff were warned that she would have to attend class with a small security team.
Since then, she has increased her protection.
A source said: “The course is aimed at older adults and can be completed part-time, which suits Emma’s schedule perfectly.”
“She only needs to be on site four to five days a year as she can complete the rest of the course online from home.
“As she is a famous actress, she is looked after by a security team whenever she has classes.
“There have been a few incidents recently and she is taking all necessary precautions to ensure her safety.”
Emma has just returned to the UK after flying to Milan for a fashion show on Thursday.
She was in Italy working for Prada after signing a contract with the brand last year and enjoyed a post-show dinner with actresses Scarlett Johansson and Letitia Wright.
Although she was always smiling, Emma was said to be nervous about recent events.
The source added: “She flew to Milan with a specialist team from the UK and Prada provided another security detail to guard her room overnight.”
“Many famous models and celebrities lived in the Palazzo Parigi where Emma lived.
“She was afraid that the people who had been sending her messages might be among the fans outside.”
During a Ralph Lauren fashion show in New York this month, a man was arrested on suspicion of trying to break into her dressing room.
Prosecutors said he was heard screaming, “I want to marry Emma Watson.”
Let me take a photo with Emma Watson.”
He has denied criminal offenses and disorderly conduct and will appear in court again next month.
JAMES JOKES WITH SPIDEY
JAMES CORDEN is making the most of his return to Blighty.
The Gavin & Stacey star and talk show host was all smiles at the 2023 Annabel’s and The Caring Family Foundation gala.
James and his wife Julia Carey shared a laugh with Spider-Man actor Andrew Garfield at the VIP event at members’ club Annabel’s in Mayfair.
The charity event, now in its fourth year, raises money to combat deforestation in the Amazon rainforest in Brazil.
Earlier this week the warm-hearted James, who until this year hosted The Late Late Show in the US, supported The Sun’s Who Cares Wins Awards.
He presented one of the best gongs of the evening in celebration of healthcare workers, held at the Roundhouse in Camden.
Channel 4 will broadcast the event on Sunday at 6.30pm.
TRAV IS AWESOME TO TAYLOR
TAYLOR SWIFT is being courted by American football hero Travis Kelce just weeks after her split from The 1975 frontman Matt Healy.
He asked her to watch one of his Kansas City Chiefs games at Arrowhead Stadium in hopes of sparking something.
Travis said, “I threw the ball into her court and told her, ‘I saw you rocking the stage at Arrowhead.’
“Maybe you need to come and see me rocking the stage at Arrowhead and see which one is a little brighter.”
“So we’ll see what happens in the near future.”
The comments come as Taylor confirmed that the fifth and final Vault track from upcoming album 1989 (Taylor’s Version) is Slut! is.
The song is expected to take aim at those who have accused her of regularly dating someone in her 20s.
Taylor previously said: “When I was 23, people belittled me by doing things like making slideshows about my dating life and bringing in people I sat next to at a party. “I once came to the conclusion that my songwriting was like a trick and not a skill or a craft.”
She added: “This industry likes to jump to the conclusion that an artist is doing something wrong because someone wants love, money or success.”
“Women are not allowed to want these things the way men want them.”
If I were Travis, I would always be aware of what might happen next with Taylor.
HARRY STYLES’ favorite photographer Anthony Pham has won the Music Moment of the Year gong.
He received the honor at the Abbey Road Studios Music Photography Awards 2023, held at the iconic London studio.
LA-based Anthony has worked closely with Harry during his worldwide Love On Tour shows.
Further prizes went to Tom Pallant for his pictures with Yungblud and Samuel Ibram for portraits of the rapper and DJ Shygirl.

More than 14,000 images from 30 countries were submitted.
Congratulations to everyone involved.
GIGI IS A CRACKER IN CREAM
GIGI HADID seemed to fit in well with glamorous Milan as she stepped into the fashion capital.
The American supermodel dazzled in a cream two-piece.
But she looked like she didn’t feel like buttoning her jacket or was in a hurry to get out the door.
And the handbag seems to be big enough to barely fit more than your smartphone to take those important selfies.
Earlier this week, Gigi celebrated the third birthday of her daughter Khai, who she had with ex Zayn Malik, on Instagram.
Gigi said: “I celebrated our three-year-old this week and feel very honored to be her mother.
“To see life through them. Happy birthday to my sweetest, smartest and bravest best friend. Dream child/love of my life.”
ANTONY COSTA lived up to his new stage role as host as he led a showbiz audience at the Mamma Mia! entertained. The party.
The BLUE singer joined the cast at London’s O2 Arena.
He plays the main role of the Greek tavern owner Nikos.
Antony more than held his own in front of guests including bandmate Duncan James and Vanessa Feltz at the show’s gala evening, billed as a theatrical dining experience.
The venue was transformed into the Greek tavern featured in the Mamma Mia! Movies
I also couldn’t help but sing along to ABBA’s greatest hits while eating lamb and drinking wine.
LIZZO AWARD BOOST
LIZZO was in a defiant mood as she accepted an award at the Black Music Action Coalition Gala.
The About Damn Time singer, who has faced bullying and harassment allegations, skipped the black carpet at Thursday’s event and sat in the audience before accepting the Quincy Jones Humanitarian Award for her philanthropic work.
Speaking on stage in LA, she said: “It’s easy to do the right thing when everyone is watching you, and what you do in the moments when no one is watching defines who you are.”
“I will continue to be who I am and I will continue to create and represent safe spaces for fat black women because that’s what the fuck I do.
“Thank you so much, I needed this now.”
It sounds like Lizzo is determined to fight for her cause.
