UK Stocks-Factors to watch on Feb 11

Feb 11 (Reuters) - Britain's FTSE 100 .FTSE index is seen opening lower on Friday, with futures FFIc1 down 0.89%.

* ILIAD-VODAFONE: Britain's Vodafone VOD.L rejected a preliminary approach for its Italian business from France's Iliad and Apax Partners worth more than 11 billion euros, the first public skirmish in what could be a new wave of European telecoms deal making.

* UNILEVER: The board of Ben & Jerry's aims to work out a "new arrangement" for sales in Israel before the end of the year, Unilever PLC's ULVR.L CEO said, after the U.S.-based independent ice cream brand last year committed to halting sales in Israeli-occupied Palestinian territories.

* GSK-VIR: An antibody-based COVID-19 therapy developed by GSK GSK.L and Vir Biotechnology VIR.O retains neutralising activity against the emerging BA.2 form of the Omicron coronavirus variant, according to data from a laboratory study cited by Vir.

* DELIVEROO: Deliveroo ROO.L will trial its "Deliveroo Hop" rapid grocery service with supermarket Waitrose, with a delivery-only store opening in Bermondsey, London, later this month, Waitrose said.

* METALS: London base metals fell as a stronger-than-expected U.S. inflation data stoked worries about a more aggressive policy tightening by the Federal Reserve, though all metals, led by aluminium, were on track for weekly gains.

* GOLD: Gold prices were steady, as bullion's appeal as an inflation hedge was partially capped by hawkish comments from a U.S. Federal Reserve official that ramped up odds for a hefty interest rate hike next month and also lifted Treasury yields.

* OIL: Oil prices eased as hot U.S. inflation fanned worries about aggressive interest rate hikes and investors await the outcome of U.S.-Iran talks that could lead to increased global crude supply.

* Britain's blue-chip index closed higher on Thursday, boosted by AstraZeneca's gains following an upbeat sales forecast, while strong metal prices lifted mining stocks to their highest in more than a decade.
