Google celebrity search feature allows you to find key details quicker

Did you know that Justin Bieber has a brother and a sister called Jaxon and Jazmyn, or that David Beckham was born on the 2 May 1975 and has four kids called Harper, Brooklyn, Cruz and Romeo?

Well now you can find out information like this and thousands of other celebrity facts incredibly quickly with a new feature in Google Search.

The new feature - which details some but not all celebrities - pulls its data from several different sources, but ultimately allows you to see key stats about your favourite celeb, such as when his or her birthday is, who they are married to, where they went to school, if they've got any children and a host of other information such as movies they've stared in or songs they've sung.

While the information is already available to those who want to spend the time digging through the internet, the move could raise concerns about just how easy the information is being presented.

Rory Cellan-Jones, the BBC's technology correspondent, is just one of those who get the new "Top Trumps" style card at the right-hand side of the search results.

We asked the man from the Beeb whether he was happy that information about his birthday, wife, brother, and where he went to school was there for all to see so easily.

"I'm incredibly flattered, but is it slightly creepy," Cellan-Jones told us, adding: "I'm not that happy about my date of birth being there."

Those who spot a mistake can opt to leave feedback saying which bit is wrong, however there appears to be no way for people included in the new search feature to request they be removed from the system.
