Russell Crowe readjusts his pants at Sydney Airport

Russell Crowe readjusts his tracksuit pants at Sydney Airport as he sports a fuller figure in preparation for his latest role in thriller Unhinged

Russell Crowe is known for his commitment to his craft.

And the 55-year-old actor appears to have gained a significant amount of weight for his latest film, Unhinged, in which he plays a psychotic stalker. 

He showed off his fuller figure at Sydney Airport on Sunday, September 22, alongside his friend, Britney Theriot.

Russell has flown back to his native Australia to visit his remote property in NSW.

Britney is a Louisiana-based real estate agent, but previously had a small role in the 2013 movie Broken City, which Russell also starred in.

There is nothing to suggest there is anything romantic between the pair.

Fans rage at BBC and ITV over joint streaming service

‘Best’ British TV on demand… but where are the hit shows? Fans rage at BBC and ITV over joint streaming service launched to rival Netflix because it doesn’t include hit shows such as Poldark, Killing Eve, Line of Duty and Strictly

  • BritBox will feature series including Downton Abbey, Wolf Hall and Top Gear
  • But fans signing into the service were left frustrated by some glaring omissions
  • Channel 4 will start adding a host of its own programmes in the coming months
  • BritBox said it would consider adding EastEnders and Coronation Street soaps 

A British TV-streaming service that aims to compete with US giants such as Netflix launched yesterday – but viewers complained that a host of hit shows were missing.

BritBox, a joint online venture led by ITV and the BBC, offers 283 box sets and claims to have a larger UK collection than its rival sites.

At £5.99 a month it is the same price as Netflix and Amazon Prime Video. However, those signing in to the ‘best of British’ service for the first time yesterday were left frustrated by some glaring omissions.

The service, which is offering a 30-day free trial, will feature series including Downton Abbey, Wolf Hall, Victoria, Love Island, Top Gear and a range of David Attenborough documentaries 

Line of Duty, Bodyguard, Luther and Call The Midwife are all missing from BritBox – as are Coronation Street and EastEnders, along with reality shows Strictly Come Dancing, Britain’s Got Talent and The X Factor.

Other huge hits notable by their absence include Killing Eve and Poldark.

The Great British Bake Off is missing too, although BritBox said the original BBC series of the show – before it moved to Channel 4 – will be added in the next six months.

One viewer Alex Call wrote on Twitter: ‘Will you be adding older archive stuff? This doesn’t seem to be much more than an upload of the TV section in a standard HMV at the moment. Give me the full archive of EastEnders and you can have my money.’

Another, Benji Clifford, asked: ‘When are we going to get classic Coronation Street on here?’

The launch comes amid industry pessimism about the chances of BritBox successfully challenging the might of US companies. 

Broadcasters tried to launch a similar service ten years ago but were blocked by competition authorities, leaving the way open for foreign rivals to take advantage.

There have also been complaints that BritBox viewers were being made to pay to watch programmes they had already funded through the TV licence fee.

The service, which is offering a 30-day free trial, will feature series including Downton Abbey, Wolf Hall, Victoria, Love Island, Top Gear and a range of David Attenborough documentaries. 

Some shows such as Broadchurch will only be available to stream on BritBox. Two Midsomer Murders episodes are also premiering on the service before they are shown on TV.

The launch comes amid industry pessimism about the chances of BritBox successfully challenging the might of US companies. Broadcasters tried to launch a similar service ten years ago but were blocked by competition authorities. The service will offer Downton Abbey, above

Channel 4 will start adding a host of its own programmes in the coming months, with Channel 5 already on board. Shows will transfer from the broadcasters’ own catch-up services such as ITV Hub after 30 days.

The BBC, however, has done a deal to move them over after a year. 

Regulator Ofcom has also allowed it to keep a number of programmes exclusively on its iPlayer service. 

Line of Duty, Bodyguard, Luther and Call The Midwife are all missing from BritBox – as are Coronation Street and EastEnders, along with reality shows Strictly Come Dancing, Britain’s Got Talent and The X Factor

BritBox will also feature vintage comedies such as Fawlty Towers and Open All Hours, plus dramas including Prime Suspect and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.

Films include a range of Carry On and Hitchcock classics, as well as The Ipcress File and Laurence Olivier’s Hamlet. 

Some comedies of yesteryear such as Love Thy Neighbour and Till Death Us Do Part will not be included because they are deemed too racist for modern audiences.

BritBox said it would consider adding the likes of EastEnders and Coronation Street. 

The launch comes as more major US players enter the crowded streaming market. Apple TV+ launched days ago at £4.99 a month and Disney+ is due to launch soon.

It’s a … ! Look Back at the Best Baby Gender Reveal Moments

When it comes to celebrity gender reveals, creativity abounds! Several stars — including Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Jessica Simpson and Jessica Alba — have gone above and beyond to let their fans and loved ones know what the sex of their babies will be.

The formula is simple enough: Stuff a unique prop — think balls, balloons, piñatas, desserts, boxes and more — with colored powder, confetti or frosting of a certain hue to signify the impending arrival of a little boy or a little girl.

The execution of each A-lister, however, varies greatly from couple to couple. Where Ryan Lochte and Kayla Reid used a wrapped box filled with pink balloons to announce the news that their second child would be a girl, The Bachelorette’s Melissa Rycroft and Tye Strickland opted for a cupcake filled with a blue frosting for their second little boy.

Carly Waddell and Evan Bass and Jason Aldean and Brittany Kerr, meanwhile, used their big reveal as a chance to bring their families closer together. Bass’ sons from a previous union, for instance, had a heck of a time hitting a pink confetti-filled piñata while Aldean’s daughters took aim at baseballs enclosed with the secret of their newest sibling’s sex.

Ultimately, it’s a moment of wonderment, shock and awe as each couple’s future is decided in an instant. Jana Kramer’s husband, Mike Caussin, even broke down in tears to learn that he would welcome his first son with the “I Got the Boy” singer after the musician suffered multiple miscarriages.

Relive those sweet moments and plenty more as you scroll through for major gender reveal inspo below!

Jessica Mulroney Claps Back at Trolls Dissing Her Swimsuit Pic


https://www.instagram.com/p/B4dLj-zF3De/

Brings ten bathing suits… only gets to wear one on a balcony. All work no play in Cayman. I WILL BE BACK to play in the water with the kiddies.

A post shared byJess Mulroney (@jessicamulroney) on

Duchess Meghan’s best friend Jessica Mulroney was targeted by body shamers after she posted a swimsuit pic.

 

Mulroney, 39, shared a snapshot from her Cayman Islands trip, in which she posed in a chic red cutout bathing suit. “Brings ten bathing suits… only gets to wear one on a balcony,” she captioned her Instagram pic on Monday, November 4. “All work, no play in Cayman. I WILL BE BACK to play in the water with the kiddies.”

Though the Canada native stunned in the stylish swimsuit, naysayers had their own thoughts about her latest post. One user asked Mulroney if “silicone float easily” while suggesting that her kids won’t need “to wear life jackets,” claiming the “silicone” on her “chest should do that job just fine for them.”

Mulroney, in turn, told the hater to “mind your own floaties.” She noted that “the hate is strong” in that one particular comment, and added: “Let’s not attack her and perhaps understand why she feels the need to bring other women down.”

The celebrity stylist continued to hit back at remarks from other trolls. “I’m not selling sex. Check yourself and perhaps educate yourself on women [sic] post-babies that want to achieve confidence and career goals. Tone it down,” she wrote.

Mulroney followed this by addressing the negative feedback over her swimsuit shot in a separate post, where she joked in a note about “never ever” posting “another picture of myself in a bathing suit.” She said she would “only wear parkas by the beach.”

Below the message, Mulroney shared a longer statement in defense of her photo.

“Apparently a picture in a bathing suit is offensive to my career, some followers, the charities I work with and my children,” she captioned the post. “But guess what… I don’t care. Thank you to my supportive followers who stand up to body shaming. Everyone else, get a clue.”

This wouldn’t be the first time Mulroney has been subjected to body-shaming comments. In August, the McGill University grad — who shares 9-year-old twin sons, John and Brian, and daughter Isabel, 6, with husband Ben Mulroney — reposted a bikini pic she had previously deleted after receiving criticism from trolls.

“I took this down after posting it yesterday. Too many trolls attacking,” she wrote. “But I realized today, I don’t care. I work hard on every aspect of my life and I’m proud of my body. I’m proud of the work I do. I’m proud that I’m driven. I’m proud of it all. And if we can’t be proud of ourselves, then what’s the point. No more apologies.”

Boy, 10, robbed at knifepoint and threatened with broken bottles while selling sweets to classmates – The Sun

A TEN-YEAR-OLD boy was robbed at knifepoint and threatened with broken bottles in a two-hour ordeal while selling sweets to his classmates.

Sonny Murray was left battered and bruised for "no reason" – only saved when a dog walker heard his screams.

Two boys, aged just 11 and 13, have now been charged with assault as Police Scotland launched an investigation.

Friends said the boy's money had been stolen, while his bike was damaged in the attack in Edinburgh last Wednesday.

He was dragged to the grounds of Liberton High School before the assault continued at nearby Glenvarloch Crescent.

It wasn't until dog walker Yvonne Jenkinson heard him scream that the gang fled.

A friend of Yvonne's said: "He was making his way home a group of teenage thugs took this wee boy away for two hours, made him fight with older boys and when he wouldn’t do it because he was terrified they threatened him with a knife and broken bottles.

"My friend was out with her dogs and heard the wee boy scream, so she shouted, made her way over to where they were and of course being the cowardly bullies they were they ran off.

"Sonny was taken to hospital to be checked over as he was bleeding profusely from his mouth, and completely soaking wet and traumatised, it is now a criminal investigation."

My friend was out with her dogs and heard the wee boy scream

It is claimed the little boy had been selling tablet – a Scottish toffee-type sweet – when he was attacked.

A fundraiser page also claimed: "Sonny was attacked for absolutely no reason, he is just a child and was robbed and his bike was badly damaged in the process.

"Most importantly though this little kid was left terrified and traumatised. Let’s show him that people care and get his bike fixed or replacement."

And with the fundraiser exceeding thousands of pounds, his family took to social media to thank the public.

Sonny’s mum Lynda Murray said on Facebook: “Just want to say a huge thanks to everyone as they have done so much for my boy Sonni.

"I’m overwhelmed with all this.”

Police Scotland confirmed they had been called to reports of an assault on a ten-year-old boy on Wednesday, October 30.

They said: "We can now confirm that an 11-year-old boy and 13-year-old boy have been charged in connection with the assault.

"A report will be sent to the Scottish Children's Reporter."

Strictly: Craig Revel Horwood makes a 'sly dig' at injured Neil Jones

Strictly Come Dancing: Craig Revel Horwood makes ‘savage dig’ at injured Neil Jones as he says Kevin Clifton and Alex Scott’s ‘accidental partnership is working wonders’

Craig Revel Horwood made a sly dig at injured Strictly Come Dancing pro Neil Jones during Saturday night’s live show.

The judge, 54, was giving comments to Alex Scott and Neil’s temporary replacement Kevin Clifton and claimed the pair’s ‘accidental partnership is working wonders.’ 

Critiquing the pair after they danced the American Smooth to Marvin Gaye’s Ain’t No Mountain High Enough, Craig said: ‘I felt we saw you for the first time tonight I really do and I have to say this accidental partnership is working wonders.’ 

Strictly Come Dancing: Craig Revel Horwood made a ‘savage dig’ at injured Neil Jones as he said Kevin Clifton and Alex Scott’s ‘accidental partnership is working wonders’ on Saturday

Fans took to Twitter to show their dismay over Craig’s comments, as they critiqued him for ‘throwing shade’ at the injured dancer.

One viewer wrote: ‘I really love Alex but I really don’t agree with Craig about the partnership. I miss Neil and I love watching them more. Voting for her so I can see her with Neil next week.’

Another added: ‘Wow. That ‘accidental partnership’ quip but Craig was extra savage to Neil.’

Supporting Neil, one fan said: ‘Craig tryna say he doesn’t mind the Alex and Kev partnership. We do lol We love Kev but we want Neil back.’

Sad news: Strictly pro Neil missed another live show due to an knee injury, one week after Kevin stepped in to replace him again at the last minute (pictured on Friday’s It Takes Two)

Neil is currently unable to compete alongside Alex after getting a grade one strain in his calf, which has meant he needs to use crutches until he’s fully healed.

Continuing to praise Alex’s performance alongside Kevin, Bruno Tonioli said: ‘What I like, I like to see how you’re growing in confidence, you’re selling it! 

‘It’s getting better everything is getting better, what you have to work on is musical phrasing which means linking every section of the choreography without breaks, you have to keeping going as you do your purpose, but well done!’

High praise: Critiquing the pair after they danced the American Smooth to Marvin Gaye’s Ain’t No Mountain High Enough, Craig said: ‘I felt we saw you for the first time tonight’

Out of action: Neil is currently unable to compete alongside Alex after getting a grade one strain in his calf, which has meant he needs to use crutches until he’s fully healed 

While Motsi Mabuse admitted she was ‘falling in love more and more’ with Alex’s dancing, as she’s seen a ‘huge improvement’ during her time on the show.

Shirley Ballas went on to add: ‘What you are today is miraculous, your frame, your centre line, there was a small mistake at the end, [but] a very good performance and you are a delight to watch.’

The pair’s impressive performance saw them earn a grand total of 31 points, which meant they place in the middle of the pack.

The hotly anticipated show, which is fronted by Ant and co-star Declan Donnelly, will return to screens on Sunday November 17 on ITV. 

The likes of Kate Garraway, Jacqueline Jossa and Ian Wright are all rumoured to be bravely swapping their lavish lifestyles for the famous jungle.

I’m A Celeb’s upcoming series marks Ant’s first time back in the jungle since 2017, which came before his drink-drive arrest and subsequent break from presenting.

While the TV star was replaced by presenter Holly Willoughby last series, bosses had previously confirmed he would always return to the show following his TV hiatus. 

What a sight: The TV star was unrecognisable in his Halloween get-up ahead of the annual celebration on Thursday

Scary bride: His former PA looked equally frightening as she rocked a red and black floral garland, while switching up her features with black eyeshadow and vampy red lipstick

It’s been reported that Anne-Marie – whom he calls his ‘rock’ – will be by his side when he jets out to Oz for his return to I’m A Celeb!

The Mail on Sunday revealed the blonde is planning to accompany him to Queensland from November, and she may take her two daughters, too.

A source told The Mail on Sunday: ‘Ant has formed a strong bond with Anne-Marie’s children – he loves kids and he is embracing having a family around him. They, in turn, want to support him as he makes his comeback on I’m A Celeb.

‘All eyes will be on him after he took last year off, so it is a fairly big deal for him. He has had a very difficult couple of years.’

Yummy: The pair indulged in some fast food as they tucked into hot dogs

This Morning star Holly, 38, took her three children – Harry, ten, Belle, eight and four-year-old Chester – to Australia during her temporary stint.

The ITV favourite also employed a tutor to ensure they didn’t get left behind with their school work – an arrangement Anne-Marie is also said to be considering.

On her decision, Holly said last year: ‘I’ve had to be really clear with them, they can play for a couple of hours but none of us are on holiday. We’re all doing work. The headmaster was amazing [for letting the kids go].’ 

Stronger than ever: Ant is set to jet to Australia for I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here later this month, and Anne-Marie will reportedly join him on the trip

Off they go: Later into their outing, the pair headed into a ‘Heat Wave’ cabin to round off their evening

Long-term: The couple have been in a relationship for over a year, following his split from ex-wife Lisa Armstrong

A Look at Kim Kardashian's Body Evolution Over the Past Decade

Kim Kardashian’s body is a hot topic across the globe — and it has been since the mom of four started hitting the red carpet over a decade ago.

16 Times Kylie Jenner Matched Outfits to People, Cars and Other Surroundings

The KKW Beauty founder’s been showing off her curves since she first started gaining attention as friend Paris Hilton’s sidekick, donning form-fitting numbers on the red carpet, gowns with high leg slits and itty-bitty bikinis at the beach. Not much has changed over the years, besides the star maintaining her curvy figure after becoming a mom — for the record, her current fitness trainer is Melissa Alcantara.

The star was pregnant with North from 2012 to 2013, but that didn’t stop her from sticking to heels and tight dresses! We’ll never forget when she stunned in a floral Givenchy gown designed by Riccardo Tisci for the 2013 Met Gala.

The brunette beauty wore a custom Givenchy Haute Couture gown designed one again by her go-to designer, Riccardo Tisci. Unsurprisingly, the curve-hugging dress fit her like a dream.

Paris Hilton shows off stunning figure at Casamigos Halloween Party

Paris Hilton transforms into a VERY sexy bunny as she sizzles in racy corset and fluffy ears at star-studded Casamigos Halloween Party

She holds her own star-studded Halloween party every year. 

But that did not stop Paris Hilton from stealing attention at Rande Gerber and Mike Meldman’s annual Casamigos Halloween party at Mike’s Beverly Hills home on Friday evening. 

The model, 38, wore daring lingerie which showed off her stunning figure paired with fluffy black bunny ears to give the look a fancy dress flourish.

Long satin gloves and feathery ears were a standout feature of the racy costume, which was also adorned with spooky spider web-style lace.

Paris showed off a flowing tail on the outfit as she posed with fans, while her honey-hued curls flowed over her eye-popping assets. 

A pair of black sandal heels continued the frightening theme, aligning well with other guest’s costumes and also boosting her already statuesque height. 

Hosts Cindy and Rande showed off their best ’60s and ’70s-style looks, with the supermodel dressed in a colorful jumpsuit.

Cindy’s luminous look was covered in strips of blue, green and yellow and decorated with gleaming sequins.

She accentuated her trim figure with a thick violet belt secured with a gold buckle, and her bell bottom pant legs culminated in a pair of open-toe heels.

Rebekah Vardy appears to take a swipe at Coleen Rooney feud

WAG war three? Rebekah Vardy appears to take a swipe at Coleen Rooney as her husband scores Leicester’s ninth goal in record-breaking Premier League match

  • The TV personality, 37, took to Twitter to make the joke as a way of celebrating her husband scoring a hat trick during Leicester City’s Premier League win 
  • Earlier this month, Rebekah was accused by Coleen of leaking stories about her to The Sun newspaper, which the expectant star has fiercely denied
  • In Coleen’s explosive post announcing who she believed was selling the stories on her, she concluded that ‘It’s ……………Rebekah Vardy’s account’ 
  • And it was this comment that the WAG appeared to be trying to emulate, which prompted fans to share their dismay at her Tweet

Rebekah Vardy appeared to take a swipe at her WAG war with Coleen Rooney on Friday, two weeks after the star accused her of selling stories.

The TV personality, 37, took to Twitter on Friday to make the joke as a way of celebrating her husband Jamie scoring a hat trick during Leicester City’s Premier League win over Southampton.

Following his incredible feat, she wrote: ‘It’s……… Jamie Vardy #9’ 

Poking fun: Rebekah Vardy appeared to take a swipe at Coleen Rooney feud as she tweeted ‘It’s……… Jamie Vardy #9’ on Friday, after THAT explosive social media post

Rebekah was accused by Coleen of leaking stories about her to The Sun newspaper, which the expectant I’m A Celebrity star has fiercely denied.   

In Coleen’s explosive post announcing who she believed was selling the stories on her, she concluded that ‘It’s ……………Rebekah Vardy’s account.’

And it was this comment that the WAG appeared to be trying to emulate, and fans shared their dismay at her Tweet.

Making light of the situation: Rebekah made the post in celebration of her husband Jamie scoring a hat trick during Leicester City’s Premier League win over Southampton

Success: Leicester humiliated Southampton at St Mary’s in the Premier League, with Jamie scoring the final goal from the penalty spot right at the death

Feud: Earlier this month, Coleen claimed the pregnant star had been leaking stories from her private Instagram to The Sun newspaper

One person wrote in response: ‘ha good one.’

While another poked fun at the claim that Rebekah’s account is accessed by more than one person, as they joked: ‘It wasn’t him someone else had access to his boots.’ 

Also using memes, one user responded with a meme of Jonah Hill prompting the person to stop talking, while another showed a person with a judgemental look on their face.

Not amused: The WAG’s Tweet appeared to be trying to emulate, and fans shared their dismay at her Tweet

 It’s been a dramatic few weeks for Becky, after Coleen’s explosive post enthralled Britain and sparked an angry denial from the pregnant WAG, following claims that she had been selling stories about her. 

Coleen admitted that stories about her basement flooding, returning to TV and gender selection were only viewed by Rebekah and these were subsequently followed by media outlets, including MailOnline. 

Rebekah cut her family holiday to Dubai short after Coleen’s dramatic accusation, which has captured Britain in the so-called ‘war of the WAGs.’

 

Sources close to Becky say leading law firm Kingsley Napley has sent Coleen a letter on her behalf demanding she provides them with the evidence she has against Becky so that she can complete her investigation.

Becky has called in a forensic team to analyse her Instagram account and identify the mole who sold fake stories to The Sun from Coleen’s Instagram account.

As part of that probe, they say, they have asked Wayne’s wife to give them the proof they have that the source must have been Becky’s Instagram account. 

Shock: Rebekah was accused by Coleen of leaking stories about her to The Sun newspaper, which the expectant I’m A Celebrity star has fiercely denied (pictured in June 2016)

The feuding pair are said to be communicating through their lawyers in the wake of the bitter row which has dominated social media and newspapers this week.

A source close to heavily pregnant Vardy now claims she is fully prepared to face her fellow WAG in court if she refuses to believe her innocence. 

An insider exclusively told MailOnline on Wednesday night that ‘Rebekah wants to prove she had nothing to do with the leaked stories and is working with a lawyer and IT experts who can look at the forensics of her Instagram, which several people have access to.’

Serious: The feuding pair are said to be communicating through their lawyers in the wake of the bitter row which has dominated social media and newspapers this week 

Meanwhile, friends of Coleen say she will not be goaded into coming forward with any further evidence as she is happy with her own investigations. 

A spokesman for Coleen said: ‘It is irrefutable that the leaks came from one account, and one account only.’

The scandal has gripped the nation to such an extent that police officers went to the Vardys’ home because of the horrific trolling they faced.  

Coleen wrote on October 9: ‘For a few years now someone who I trusted to follow me on my personal Instagram account has been consistently informing The Sun newspaper of my private posts and stories. 

Dramatic: The scandal has gripped the nation to such an extent that police officers went to the Vardys’ home because of the horrific trolling they faced

The statement: Coleen made these claims on Instagram on October 9  after discovering she had been betrayed by someone close to her and she concluded that it was Rebekah’s account

Wag-atha Christie: Coleen tweeted these words back in January, highlighting how she has been trying to get to the bottom of who was leaking stories on her life for some time

 ‘There has been so much information given to them about me, my friends and my family – all without my permission or knowledge.

‘After a long time of trying to figure out who it could be, for various reasons, I had a suspicion. To try and prove this, I came up with an idea, I blocked everyone from viewing Instagram except ONE account. ‘   

She continued: ‘(Those on my private account must have been wondering why I haven’t had stories on there for a while).   

‘Over the past five months I have posted a series of false stories to see if they made their way into the Sun newspaper. 

The FAKE stories Coleen shared which were sold to The Sun and followed by media outlets

Wayne and Coleen Rooney’s £20m ‘Morrisons’ manor is ‘flooded

On Tuesday, it was claimed that the Rooney’s basement had flooded due to Storm Lorenzo.

It was said to have caused a ‘massively stressful’ setback in the completion of the sprawling three-storey mansion 

Coleen Rooney ‘is so desperate for a baby girl that she’s looked into controversial £8K gender selection treatment’ 

The Sun first reported that mother of four sons, Coleen had looked into ‘gender selection’ treatment in a desperate bid for a daughter and had flown to Mexico earlier this year to discuss the controversial £8,000 treatment with doctors

Coleen Rooney ‘hopes to revive her TV career including a Strictly stint now she’s moved back to the UK’ after husband Wayne’s scandal 

The Sun wrote that she was in talks to revive her once successful UK TV career now her family has moved back to this side of the Atlantic.

The mother-of-four apparently had to decline the offer to appear on this year’s Strictly Come Dancing but could compete in 2020

‘And you know what, they did! The story about gender selection in Mexico, the story about returning to TV and then the latest story about the basement flood in my new house.

‘It’s been tough keeping it to myself and not making any comment at all, especially when the stories have been leaked, however I had to. Now I know for certain which account/individual it’s come from.

‘I have saved and screenshotted all the original stories which clearly show just one person has viewed them. It’s……… Rebekah Vardy’s account.’ 

She also wrote: ‘This has been a burden in my life for a few years now and finally I have got to the bottom of it……’ 

Rebekah hit back minutes later on social media and denied the accusations, she wrote: ‘Can’t believe I’m even having to write this. I’m pregnant & on holiday & am at a loss to why she would do this. 

‘I’m now having to take legal advice as I can’t deal with this stress myself when I’m this pregnant. As I have just said to you on the phone, I wish you had called me if you thought this.

‘I never speak to anyone about you as various journalists who have asked me to over the years can vouch for. If you thought this was happening you can could have told me & I could have changed my passwords to see if it stopped.’

She continued: ‘Over the years various people have had access to my insta & just this week I found I was following people I didn’t know and have never followed myself. 

‘I’m not being funny but I don’t need the money, what would I gain from selling stories on you? I liked you a lot Coleen & I’m so upset that you have chosen to do this especially when I’m heavily pregnant. 

‘I’m disgusted that I’m even having to deny this. You should have called me the first time this happened [broken heart emoji].’

‘I don’t need the money’: Rebekah denied all accusations against her minutes after the post and said she had nothing to gain and had no financial motivation

Donald Cerrone hints at taking on UFC legend Conor McGregor in January with Notorious set for return after Khabib loss – The Sun

DONALD CERRONE has hinted he will be the man Conor McGregor faces on the Irishman's anticipated UFC comeback.

McGregor, 31, announced at a press conference in Russia he will return on January 18 in Las Vegas.


The Notorious did not reveal who he will face but claims the UFC have agreed a bout between him and the mystery opponent.

And cage legend “Cowboy” Cerrone hinted on Instagram he will stand across the octagon to McGregor in January.

Cerrone posted a picture of the Irishman’s Proper 12 whiskey with the caption: “Need I say more??”

Need I say more??

A post shared byDonald Cerrone (@cowboycerrone) on

McGregor had wanted to return at UFC 245 on December 14 against featherweight Frankie Edgar.

But the promotion decided against the date, as they already have three title bouts booked for the Las Vegas card.

According to ESPN, Cerrone is the frontrunner to face McGregor on his return, but Justin Gaethje is also in contention.

The UFC did not even plan to stage a pay-per-view event in January, but after it became clear The Notorious was ready to return, they came up with the date.

McGregor revealed in Moscow he plans to face the winner of Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal after his return bout, before eyeing a rematch with Khabib Nurmagomedov in Russia.

Diaz, however, has threatened to pull out of his contest with Masvidal next month in New York after he “tested with elevated levels”.

The American has not been suspended or pulled from the fight, but insists he will not compete with his “name tainted as a cheater” and claims he will wait until the case is fully resolved.

Man at theme park slashed teen girl, bit man who tried to intervene

A Pennsylvania man slashed a girl with a razor blade at Dorney Park and Wildwater Kingdom — and bit a man who tried to stop him, police said.

Jorge Otero Jr., 18, was arrested late Saturday at the theme park in Allentown after South Whitehall Township police said he pulled out a razor blade and slashed a 14-year-old girl, leaving a large gash on her left hand, Police Chief Glen Dorney told The Post.

Otero bit a man three times when the good Samaritan tried to stop him from running away, sinking his teeth into the man’s left hand and right shoulder, Dorney said.

“The gentleman actually confronted him and tried to detain him until security got there, but in the process, [Otero] bit the man,” the chief said, leaving the victim with several small cuts and bruising.

Dorney said it’s unclear what led up to the “random, sudden” attack, which occurred during the theme park’s annual “Halloween Haunt” celebration, featuring themed mazes, scare zones and “monsters prowling the park,” according to its website.

“For whatever reason, he decided to do that,” the chief said, adding that the 14-year-old girl knew Otero from school, but told police he said nothing prior to the slashing.

Calls seeking additional comment from park officials were not returned Thursday.

Otero, of Allentown, is facing charges of aggravated assault and simple assault. He was released from custody Sunday after posting $20,000 bail, PennLive.com reports.

Attempts to reach Otero on Thursday were unsuccessful.

Woman buys old family Bible at library book sale, discovers this inside

‘War to end all wars’: How World War I still resonates today

As the world marks the 100th anniversary of the armistice that ended World War I, the National World War I Museum and Memorial serves as a reminder of the sacrifices U.S. troops made in ‘The Great War.’ Eric Shawn reports from Kansas City, Missouri.

When Christy Limauro purchased an old family Bible at a library book sale in Toledo, Ohio, she was intrigued to find a small brown card tucked inside.

The card turned out to be a World War I draft registration card that contained the details of a Toledo resident named Clem Clair Hubbard. Limauro set out to trace Hubbard’s descendants and return the card to them.

“Using a 1940 census online, she found the names of his wife and children,” explained the Toledo Lucas County Public Library, in a blog post. “The Library’s Local History and Genealogy Department staff provided her with obituaries for some of Hubbard’s children that led to additional names.”

THIS BULLET-SCARRED BIBLE ‘SAVED THE LIFE’ OF A WORLD WAR I SOLDIER

Limauro then sent a message to Hubbard’s grandson and some other relatives. “After a couple weeks, Limauro called Hubbard’s grandson, Ed McPeek of Las Vegas, and was elated to hear back,” the library explained in the blog post. McPeek’s granddaughter had seen the message and linked her grandfather and Limauro.

The card, which had spent decades tucked inside the family Bible, has now been returned to Ed McPeek.

“I am so happy to say that I will be able to pass this family memento on to Ed and his family,” Limauro said, according to the blog post. “I hope some day to be able to meet Ed and [his wife] Debbie in person and hear more about their family and their history in our area.”

WORLD WAR I POSTERS OFFER UNIQUE GLIMPSE INTO SOLDIERS' STORIES 100 YEARS AFTER THE ARMISTICE

According to the card, Hubbard registered for the draft on Sept. 12, 1918, just a couple of months before the end of hostilities on Nov. 11, 1918.

“Ed McPeek remembers the distinctive green Bible at the Toledo home of his grandparents, Clement and Mayme Hubbard, until his grandfather’s death in 1964,” the library said in its blog post. “It then passed to his parents, Helen and Kenneth McPeek, in Ottawa Lake, Michigan. After Ed McPeek’s father died, the Bible was donated to St. Michael’s Lutheran Church.”

The Bible ended up in the Friends of the Library book sale at the Sylvania branch of the Toledo Lucas County Public Library, where it was bought by Limauro.

HISTORIAN DISCOVERS SECRET NOTES HIDDEN IN 500-YEAR-OLD BIBLE

Other Bibles have been garnering attention in recent years. A Bible marked with bullet holes from a German machine gun helped save the life of a British World War I soldier, his daughter explained last year.

In 2016, the Museum of the American Revolution in Philadelphia purchased an extremely rare Bible from the Battle of Bunker Hill. The King James Bible, which is on display in the museum, is inscribed by American soldier Francis Merrifield, who thanks God for sparing his life in the bloody 1775 battle.

Also in 2016, a historian in the U.K. discovered secret notes hidden in the text of England’s first printed bible. Analysis of the Latin Bible, which was published in 1535 by Henry VIII’s printer, has revealed fascinating English annotations made during the 16th-century Reformation.

Pregnant Maren Morris Hints at Due Date With Bare Baby Bump Pic


Coming soon! Pregnant Maren Morris shared a due date estimate with her followers in a Wednesday, October 23, Instagram post.

“Got another Aries in the mix,” the singer, 29, captioned a black-and-white photo from her maternity shoot, referencing the March 21 to April 19 star sign. “Uh oh.”

https://www.instagram.com/p/B3973hLhUDw/

got another Aries in the mix. uh oh. ♈️🔥

A post shared byMaren Morris (@marenmorris) on

In the social media upload, the Grammy winner cradled her bare baby bump while wearing a black crop top, matching underwear and a cowboy hat.

This announcement came one day after the “My Church” singer and her husband, Ryan Hurd, revealed their pregnancy news. “The irony is just too rich that after a year of living in the ‘GIRL’ headspace, the universe would give us a baby boy to even things out,” she wrote on Instagram. “See you in 2020, little one.”

Hurd, 32, added with a post of his own: “MY BOYS CAN SWIM. BABY BOY HURD 2020! Look at her…cannot believe this life with this girl. Also, thank you George Constanza for this caption that I’ve been sitting on my entire life.”

The “Love in a Bar” singer went on to share a shirtless beach shot on Wednesday, writing, “Dad bod.” And on his Instagram Story that same day, he showed off a “dad pour” while making his morning coffee.

The parents-to-be started dating in 2015 after cowriting “Last Turn Home” for Tim McGraw. They got engaged three years later. In March 2018, the couple tied the knot in Nashville.

Morris spoke to Us Weekly exclusively about their long-distance marriage a year after their wedding. “I’ve learned so much from Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman,” the Texas native said in March. “They’ve got the two-week rule; he’s got his kids out on the road. They just make it look so normal and it makes me and Ryan feel like this could be normal as well. We do a pretty good job at constantly keeping in contact, lots of FaceTime. We have the same manager now, so she helps our calendars really coalesce well and that’s helped it a good bit.”

Lindsay Lohan hits out at Miley Cyrus and boyfriend Cody Simpson

Lindsay Lohan takes a swipe at Miley Cyrus as she claims her sister’s ex Cody Simpson has ‘settled for less’ and ‘lost his future’ by dating the singer

  • Lindsay claimed her sister Aliana’s ex Cody has downgraded by dating Miley
  • The Masked Singer judge, 33, took to Instagram to throw shade at the couple
  • Miley, 26, began dating Cody after splitting from former flame Kaitlynn Carter 
  • Cody briefly dated Lindsay’s younger sister Aliana Lohan, 25, last year

Lindsay Lohan has hit out at Miley Cyrus as she claimed her sister Aliana’s ex Cody Simpson has downgraded by romancing the Malibu hitmaker.

The Masked Singer judge, 33, took to Instagram to throw shade at the new couple and said that the Australian star had ‘settled for less’ by dating Miley.

Miley, 26, began seeing Cody earlier this month after splitting from Kaitlynn Carter, following her separation from her estranged husband Liam Hemsworth in August.

Slammed! Lindsay Lohan has hit out at Miley Cyrus as she claimed her sister Aliana’s ex Cody Simpson has downgraded by dating the Malibu hitmaker

Cody, who was recently crowned the winner of the Australian version of the Masked Singer, briefly dated Lindsay’s younger sister Aliana Lohan, 25, last year.

Clearly unhappy with Cody’s new choice of partner following their break-up, Lindsay hit out at the pair of social media and shared an old image of Cody and Ali together during their relationship.

She penned underneath the snap: ‘When you realise you failed. And you settle for less @codysimpson family is everything you won the masked singer but you lost on your future.’

Former flame: Cody, who was recently crowned the winner of the Masked Singer, briefly lived with and dated Lindsay’s younger sister Aliana Lohan, 25, last year

Throwing shade: The Masked Singer judge, 33, took to Instagram to throw shade at the new couple and said that the Australian star had ‘settled for less’ by dating Miley

This isn’t the only run-in Lindsay and Cody have had recently, as Lindsay confronted him when he was unmasked as The Robot during the Masked Singer finale.

Lindsay claimed she had furnished the Australian pop star’s home in Los Angeles, and left him baffled when she asked him when he was going to ‘return’ it.

Fellow Masked Singer judge and radio host Jackie ‘O’ Henderson has since revealed the real back story behind their confrontation.

Shocking: Clearly unhappy with Cody’s new choice of partner following their break-up, Lindsay shared an image of Cody and Ali together during their relationship

‘So Lindsay bought them a house load of furniture. And then, as soon as they moved in, according to Lindsay, he split up with Ali. And then I think Ali moved out.’

An amused Kyle Sandilands responded: ‘Cody seemed to have no idea!’

Jackie continued: ‘Maybe [Lindsay] had just told Ali, and Cody had no idea where the furniture had come from.’

 It’s him! This isn’t the only run-in Lindsay and Cody have had recently, as Lindsay confronted him when he was unmasked as The Robot during the Masked Singer finale

Miley and Cody’s romance has been making headlines since they were spotted kissing in Los Angeles in early October, just two months after she split from her husband, Liam Hemsworth.

Since then it has been full steam ahead for the lovebirds, who have reportedly already moved in together.

On Tuesday, Miley sent fans wild when she shared a selfie wearing Cody’s ring on her finger which was branded with his initials ‘CS’.

Cody is currently in Australia doing interviews for the local version of The Masked Singer, following his win as the Robot.

Vatican at risk of default due to plummeting donations: exposé

The Vatican is in need of salvation.

Donations to the Catholic church have plummeted in wake of its pervasive clergy sex abuse scandal — so much so that it’s at risk of default by 2023, according to a new exposé.

In 2006, the church raked in 101 million euros — or the equivalent of $112 million — in contributions. By 2016, that number was 70 euros, or $70 million, and now could be less than 60 million euros, the Telegraph reported.

The startling bottom line is according to Italian investigative journalist Gianluigi Nuzzi, whose new book “Universal Judgment” came out Monday.

He blames the church’s financial mess on a dip in donations, as well as poor money management and bad real estate deals.

“If the pontificate of Frances fails, it won’t be because of the attacks of conservative Catholics or the crisis in vocations or because of the declining number of faithful,” Nuzzi writes in the book. “It will be because of the financial collapse that is coming ever closer.”

The APSA, a department of the Holy See which oversees real estate and investments, lost the equivalent of nearly $49 million last year — prompting officials to set up an emergency task force, according to Nuzzi.

He said the real estate portfolio was worth an estimated 2.7 billion euros and was poorly managed. Some 800 properties were empty, while 15 percent of the 3,200 rented properties were being leased for free or below-market prices.

“The deficit is recurring and structural and has reached worrying levels,” a Vatican official wrote in a memo obtained by Nuzzi. “We risk a default if no urgent steps are taken.”

Only a fifth of total donations go to the poor and the rest is held in bank accounts or used toward the debts of the Vatican’s governing body, Curia, Nuzzi said.

Sex abuse scandals have rocked dioceses in the US, Ireland, Chile, Australia and other countries.

Pope Francis’s economic adviser slapped down allegations in Nuzzi’s book, calling them an attempt to discredit the pontiff.

“To say that the Vatican is at danger of default is false,” said Honduran Cardinal Oscar Maradiaga in an interview with Repubblica newspaper on Tuesday. “It seems to me there is a discrediting strategy underway.”

Nicole Kidman and Charlize Theron speak on a panel at the BAFTA

Nicole Kidman and Charlize Theron keep it casual in denim at Bombshell screening

They’re co-stars in the upcoming political drama Bombshell.

And Nicole Kidman and Charlize Theron came out to push their upcoming project as they spoke on a panel at a BAFTA screening of the flick on Saturday in New York. 

Kidman, 52, donned a grey cashmere sweater over a white shirt and medium-wash jeans.

Up-front: Nicole Kidman and Charlize Theron came out to push their upcoming project as they spoke on a panel at a BAFTA screening of the flick on Saturday in New York

She paired the casual look with black boots that featured a chunky heel.  

Theron, 44, wore a black blazer, a silk shirt and white pants with navy pinstripes.

Her feet navigated the event in a pair of black pointed-toe pumps.  


Screen stars: Theron and Kidman star in the upcoming political drama Bombshell

Bombshell centers on a group of female employees at Fox News who take on a toxic male culture, leading to the downfall of media mogul Roger Ailes, according to an official synopsis.

The film was directed by Jay Roach, who said of the film’s character inspirations: ‘These were women who would not have necessarily called themselves feminists and sometimes even were anti-politically correct.’ 

He added: ‘And they ended up being the people that spoke up.’ 

Bombshell also stars Margot Robbie, Jon Lithgow, Kate McKinnon and Allison Janney. 

Theron, who also serves as a producer for the film, told Entertainment Weekly of her experience preparing for it: ‘All of my other issues that I have with that world, I had to put all of that aside because the story is worth telling.’ 

‘It doesn’t have anything to do with how I feel about Fox News or how I feel about Republicans. That’s not what this film is about at all.’ 

Engaged: Theron, who also serves as a producer for the film, told Entertainment Weekly of her experience preparing for it: ‘All of my other issues that I have with that world, I had to put all of that aside because the story is worth telling’

Theron spent hours in the makeup chair in order to transform into journalist Megyn Kelly for the finished product.

She also took the time to study footage of Kelly, especially her unscripted interviews.

‘She’s pretty hard, and she comes across a certain way that feels very strong and very much like you can’t break through any of that wall,’ she said. 

‘But there are moments where you watch her – especially after [the events in Bombshell] take place – where you can see some of her vulnerability.’ 

Bombshell is set for release on Dec. 20, 2019.  

On-the-go: Kidman arrived with a smile to the event with a burgundy leather purse 


Screen star: Theron signed autographs when she arrived to the event

Jose Mourinho takes sly dig at Man Utd board for protecting Solskjaer who is in ‘great situation’ at club despite slump – The Sun

JOSE MOURINHO has taken a sly dig at Manchester United's board for protecting Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who is in "great situation" at the club despite their poor start to the season.

The Red Devils face table-toppers Liverpool after a run of three games without a win in all competitions and are just one point clear of the relegation zone.

Mourinho was sacked the morning after a 3-1 defeat to the Reds last December, with fans predicting his Norwegian successor to suffer the same fate.

But the Special One believes Solskjaer is lucky for the constant reassurances he receives at Old Trafford, in contrast to the atmosphere under his tenure.

Speaking on Sky Sports, Mourinho said: "They did some good PR in the week to make it absolutely clear or create positive atmosphere for the game.

"I’m going to try and get a job like Ole has, and speak all the time about the future.

"I think it’s a great situation, three-year contract – the future, the young players. I think it’s a great job to do in such a giant club."

I’m going to try and get a job like Ole has, and speak all the time about the future

Despite Mourinho's claims, Liverpool icon Graeme Souness has stressed that Solsjkaer is in desperate need of results soon.

He said: “Ole is looking down the barrel of a gun. If they get beat up today, they are low on confidence, the calls will get bigger against Ole.

“Who is going to stand up in that dressing room and be main men for Ole? They are short on that.

“It’s about now, and right now they do not have anything like the quality they have had for the last 25-30 years.”

Solskjaer have been handed the boost by the news that David De Gea starts for United after hobbling off the pitch on Monday while playing for Spain.

The former Cardiff City manager has gone for a 3-5-2 formation with Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Ashley Young deployed on the wings.

Outcast Fred has been picked to start in the middle of the field alongside Scott McTominay and Andreas Pereira with Paul Pogba still injured.

Washington Capitals at Chicago Blackhawks odds, picks and betting tips

Washington downed the New York Rangers 5-2 Friday. The Capitals took advantage of a tired Rangers team in the third period, scoring twice to seal the game.

The Blackhawks defeated the Columbus Blue Jackets 3-2 in overtime behind a stronger defensive effort.

Capitals at Blackhawks: Projected starting goalies

Braden Holtby vs. Corey Crawford

Holtby is 2-1-2 with a .862 save percentage (stopping 125 of 145 shots) and a 3.83 goals against average in six games. He has bookended quality starts with four outings that represented total disaster. Even Friday’s win against the Rangers was a bit of an adventure as Holtby survived two posts and two crossbars being hit.

Crawford is 1-2 with a 3.40 goals against average and .900 save percentage. He has one quality start on the season and that was against the Edmonton Oilers – where he allowed just one goal while facing 28 shots. Crawford was rested against Columbus the other night so he has had five days of rest between starts.

  • The teams split the last four meetings. Each team won twice at home.
  • The Over/Under was 3-0-1 in the previous four games between the two teams.

Odds via BetMGM; access USA TODAY Sports’ betting odds for a full list. Lines last updated Thursday at 6 p.m. ET.

Prediction

Seahawks 28, Ravens 27

Moneyline ( ?)

This is going to be a close game because neither team is without flaws, but the Ravens have a good chance to pull off the road upset. The moneyline on BALTIMORE (+145) is especially enticing because of the upside if the Ravens do win outright. A $10 bet returns a profit of $14.50.

Against the Spread ( ?)

The combination of Baltimore’s upset potential and a spread larger than a field goal makes the Ravens a good bet here. They could win outright, which wouldn’t be surprising at all, but they have a great chance to cover the spread – even though they haven’t done so since Week 1. Remember, Seattle is 0-4 ATS at home. Take the RAVENS+3.5 (-121) this weekend.

Over/Under ( ?)

There are bound to be some fireworks with QBs Lamar Jackson and Russell Wilson. Seattle’s defense has played extremely well this season, while Baltimore’s pass defense has been a work in progress. The Ravens just acquired CB Marcus Peters, who’s known for letting up big plays and making some on his own. Bet the OVER on the total line of 50.5 (+110).

Celeb Moms Clap Back at the Parenting Police

The claws will come out if you mess with a mama. Case in point: Khloe Kardashian ripped into a Twitter user who called her daughter True “not cute at all.”

A disgusted Kardashian fired back, “What type of disgusting human being are you? It’s pathetic that you are this miserable in your life.”

Of course, the Revenge Body host isn’t the only famous parent who has gone off on mom-shamers. Kourteney Kardashian, Kristin Cavallari, Cardi B, Chrissy Teigen and Jana Kramer have all defended themselves against the parent police on social media. 

Teigen explained to Parenting.com in 2017: “You can call me whatever you want. You can call me ugly, you can say my forehead is big, you can say my dress is hideous but once you start talking about my food and my child that’s when I get really crazy.” (The model has been criticized for everything from flying in her third trimester to using plastic bath toys.)

The cookbook author, who is mom of Luna and Miles, noted, “I think people should remember that everyone is just doing their best.”

Mario Falcone throws shade at ex Lucy Mecklenburgh over Mark Wright

Mario Falcone throws serious shade at ex Lucy Mecklenburgh as he claims Mark Wright did him a ‘massive favour’ by spending the night with her in 2011

She admitted to cheating on him with their co-star during an emotional showdown on TOWIE in 2011 after denying it for two months.

And Mario Falcone decided to throw some serious shade at his ex Lucy Mecklenburgh on Tuesday as he claimed that Mark Wright did him a ‘massive favour’ by spending the night with her in 2011.

The TOWIE star, 31, revealed that despite their past drama, he’s proud of the presenter’s, 32, achievements and has even congratulated the star on his milestones.

Talking to New! Magazine, Mario said: ‘Anything to do with his work or marriage, I’ve messaged him to say congratulations. He’s done so well.

‘Everything happens for a reason and, at the end of the day, he did me a massive favour.’

MailOnline has contacted Lucy’s representative for comment. 

In 2011, Mark had told Mario that he had hooked up with Lucy while he was holidaying in Ibiza, with the brunette beauty denying the claims for two months before eventually admitting that she had cheated in an emotional showdown on TOWIE. 

What drama? The TOWIE star, 31, revealed that despite their past drama, he’s proud of the presenter’s, 32, achievements and has even congratulated the star on his milestones (Mark and Lucy pictured on TOWIE in 2010) 

A fuming Mario swiftly broke up with her and yelled at the time: ‘You lied for the last two months not just to me, to my whole family.

‘What sort of person does that make you? How can you say anything? There is nothing more to say!’

The week before, Mark’s older sister Jessica showed James ‘Arg’ Argent and Gemma Collins a text message from Lucy asking her to cover for her on the night of the impromptu sleepover.

Lucy and Mario started dating in April 2011, with the bespoke tailor making his debut on the third series of TOWIE in September.

Just weeks into their relationship, it was rocked when Lucy and Mark shared a kiss on holiday in Marbella.

But as the couple weren’t ‘serious’ at the time, Mario let it slide, yet when he discovered Mark and Lucy spent yet a night together months later, he wasn’t so forgiving. 

Yet the couple eventually rekindled their romance and even got engaged before calling it off for good in 2012.  

Fatherhood: Mario is now loved-up with fiancée Becky Miesner and they welcomed a son together, Parker Jax, in November 2018

Pregnant Rebekah Vardy is supported by Jamie at wedding amid WAG war

PICTURE EXCLUSIVE: Pregnant Rebekah Vardy looks emotional as she is supported by husband Jamie at a friend’s wedding in Leicester… after jetting back to the UK in tears amid WAG war with Coleen Rooney

  • Last week, the 37-year-old WAG was accused by Coleen of leaking stories about her to a tabloid newspaper
  • Coleen, 33,  released a statement, in which she said that she put fake stories on Instagram to catch the culprit
  • Rebekah has vehemently denied the accusations and stated that she’s hiring a forensic team to investigate
  • Although their husbands have not spoken publicly on the matter, Jamie is said to have ‘unfollowed Wayne on social media’ 

Rebekah Vardy looked emotional as she was supported by husband Jamie at a friend’s wedding in  Leicester on Monday, amid her ongoing war with Coleen Rooney.

The pregnant WAG, 37, appeared tense as she climbed out of a car and was shielded from the rain by a minder, with footballer Jamie, 32, wrapping an arm around her as they entered the venue. 

Rebekah has recently returned to the UK from Dubai after being accused by Coleen of leaking stories about her to The Sun newspaper, which the expectant I’m A Celebrity star has fiercely denied. 


Drama: Rebekah Vardy looked emotional as she attended a friend’s wedding in Leicester on Monday, amid her ongoing war with Coleen Rooney

There for you: The star’s husband, footballer Jamie Vardy, 32, appeared to wrap an arm around his wife as they walked into the venue.

Appearing to fight back tears as she arrived, Rebekah failed to raise a smile as she spoke with Jamie briefly before hurrying away from the car park.

The seven-month pregnant beauty looked smart in a navy blue trouser suit worn with a powder blue slip, which covered her growing bump.

She paired this with vertiginous heels and wore her tresses in an elaborate half updo.

Jamie wore a patterned dove grey blazer, jeans and trainers for the couple’s outing, amid the ongoing spat between the WAGs. 



Tough time: Rebekah failed to raise a smile as she climbed out of a car in rainy Leicester before heading inside 


Together: Leicester City striker Jamie looked concerned as he escorted his pregnant wife into the venue

WAG WAR: Fans have  praised Coleen– calling her ‘Wagatha Christie’ – for the sensational way in which she revealed Vardy was the alleged culprit by concluding her post with a thriller-worthy ‘It’s……… Rebekah Vardy’s account

The sighting comes two days after Rebekah was pictured returning to the UK in floods of tears.

The star was supported by Jamie as she returned to London’s Heathrow Airport from a family trip to Dubai on Saturday. 

In the emotional pictures, Rebekah is seen struggling to hide her tears as she makes her way through the busy airport hand-in-hand with husband Jamie 

Sources close to Becky say leading law firm Kingsley Napley has sent Coleen a letter on her behalf demanding she provides them with the evidence she has against Becky so that she can complete her investigation.

Becky has called in a forensic team to analyse her Instagram account and identify the mole who sold fake stories to The Sun from Coleen’s Instagram account.



Denied; Rebekah has recently returned to the UK from Dubai after being accused by Coleen of leaking stories about her to The Sun newspaper, which the expectant I’m A Celebrity star has fiercely denied

Support: Jamie, who liked his wife’s post denying Coleen’s claims, and has reportedly unfollowed Wayne Rooney on social media, stayed close by Rebekah’s side 

As part of that probe, they say, they have asked Wayne’s wife to give them the proof they have that the source must have been Becky’s Instagram account.

Hours before Rebekah’s return to British shores, Coleen, whose husband Wayne is currently playing football in the US, looked worse-for-wear as she left footballer Wes Brown’s 40th birthday bash in Manchester on Friday at 4am  

The star partied with fellow footballer’s wives Tanya Bardsley and Leanne Brown, and struggled to keep her eyes open as she left.

On Sunday, The Sun reported that Jamie is so upset with the way things have played out between his wife and Coleen that he has ‘unfollowed Wayne on Instagram’ – however, Jamie has strenuously denied the claims.

A source had alleged to the publication: ‘Jamie has always got on well with Wayne, but he won’t stand for having his wife hung out to dry in public like this.’

The source added that Jamie is standing by Rebekah ‘100 per cent’ as she launches a fight to prove her innocence.


Sighting: Rebekah and Jamie presented a united front as they made their way to the wedding together

Expecting: The pregnant WAG covered her baby bump in a powder blue slip as she walked into the venue 

Said a friend: ‘He’s totally behind Becky and furious with the Rooneys for the way they have gone about this. He and Wayne always got on well and he likes him. But he has made his feelings clear. Cutting him off on social media is a totally deliberate snub.’

Rebekah cut her family holiday short after Coleen’s dramatic accusation on Wednesday, which has enthralled Britain in the so-called ‘war of the WAGs.’  

Their sighting comes amid claims Rebekah has threatened Coleen with legal action over allegations of leaking staged Instagram stories, warning her: ‘Believe me or I’ll see you in court.’

The feuding pair are said to be communicating through their lawyers in the wake of the bitter row which has dominated social media and newspapers this week.

A source close to heavily pregnant Vardy now claims she is fully prepared to face her fellow WAG in court if she refuses to believe her innocence.



Chat: The couple presented a united front as they spoke before heading to the wedding together 

Rare sighting: Jamie wore a dove grey blazer and jeans for the couple’s appearance at the wedding 

The source told The Sun: ‘She is prepared to see Coleen in court if necessary.’

Earlier in the day Coleen was spotted outside her Cheshire home in the midst of her controversial war with Rebekah.

The wife of Wayne Rooney maintained a steely expression as she headed out in her lavish motor just two days after alleging that the pregnant spouse of Leicester player Jamie was leaking fake stories about her to The Sun.  

As she stepped out, fellow WAG Nicola McLean, 38, appeared on This Morning, where she lashed out at Coleen for the danger she is placing on Rebekah, who is seven months pregnant and is said to be ‘distressed’.

Giving her opinion on the row, Nicola hit out at Coleen for publicly accusing pregnant Rebekah of leaking stories about her to the press.

Low profile: The couple were shielded by umbrellas as they made a low-key arrival to the venue 


Dapper: Jamie looked dapper as he followed behind Rebekah into the wedding venue 

In what has become a War of the WAGs, Coleen released an incredible social media statement aimed at Rebekah in which she revealed she set up an elaborate sting on Instagram to ‘catch’ who was leaking fake stories.

Subsequently Nicola issued a warning to Coleen about stressing out an expectant mother, as she said: ‘Coleen doing this is not okay… Something is going to happen to a pregnant woman and a baby!’

Coleen’s dramatic revelation enthralled Britain and sparked an angry denial from pregnant Rebekah, who said ‘I don’t need the money’ and pointed out other people have had access to her Instagram account.

Rebekah recently gave an interview with The Daily Mail, in which she insisted arguing with Coleen is akin to rowing ‘with a pigeon’.

Recalling the dreaded phone call between them, Rebekah revealed: ‘I said to her: “Coleen, what on earth have you done?”‘  

Sighting: The couple were escorted into the venue by their entourage and security 

Entourage: Jamie spoke to Rebekah as the couple made their way inside the Leicester venue 

‘It was not an easy phone call. She said to me: “I’m not  pointing the finger” and I said: “You have just annihilated me in public and hung me out to dry. The whole world hates me!”

‘I thought she was my friend but she completely annihilated me. She said: “You know, I always really liked you, which makes it harder.”‘

Asked whether the pair argued, Rebekah was careful not to explicitly denounce Coleen, but said: ‘That would be like arguing with a pigeon. You can tell it that you are right and it is wrong, but it’s still going to s*** in your hair.’

It has been revealed that Rebekah has hired a team of forensic IT experts to prove her innocence after Coleen accused her of selling stories to the press through information she obtained from her private Instagram.

Appearance; The couple stayed together as they left their cars and headed to the wedding ceremony 

An insider exclusively told MailOnline on Wednesday night that ‘Rebekah wants to prove she had nothing to do with the leaked stories and is working with a lawyer and IT experts who can look at the forensics of her Instagram, which several people have access to.’

Meanwhile, friends of Coleen say she will not be goaded into coming forward with any further evidence as she is happy with her own investigations.

The FAKE stories Coleen shared which were sold to The Sun and followed by media outlets

Wayne and Coleen Rooney’s £20m ‘Morrisons’ manor is ‘flooded

On Tuesday, it was claimed that the Rooney’s basement had flooded due to Storm Lorenzo.

It was said to have caused a ‘massively stressful’ setback in the completion of the sprawling three-storey mansion 

Coleen Rooney ‘is so desperate for a baby girl that she’s looked into controversial £8K gender selection treatment’ 

The Sun first reported that mother of four sons, Coleen had looked into ‘gender selection’ treatment in a desperate bid for a daughter and had flown to Mexico earlier this year to discuss the controversial £8,000 treatment with doctors

Coleen Rooney ‘hopes to revive her TV career including a Strictly stint now she’s moved back to the UK’ after husband Wayne’s scandal 

The Sun wrote that she was in talks to revive her once successful UK TV career now her family has moved back to this side of the Atlantic.

The mother-of-four apparently had to decline the offer to appear on this year’s Strictly Come Dancing but could compete in 2020

Rebekah had previously demanded to see screenshots of the Instagram stories and who had viewed them.

They added: ‘Rebekah has been incredibly stressed and hasn’t stopped sobbing all day, which is very out of character for her.  

‘The whole situation has left her distraught and she still doesn’t understand why Coleen didn’t reach out to her first to ask her outright about the issue.

‘She’s flying home early from Dubai as she feels her time abroad has been spoilt and all she wants is to be surrounded by family.

A spokesman for Coleen said: ‘It is irrefutable that the leaks came from one account, and one account only.’

The scandal has gripped the nation to such an extent that police officers went to the Vardys’ home because of the horrific trolling they faced.

The couple were still on holiday in Dubai earlier this week but police arrived at their home in Lincolnshire to check on their security in the wake of the vile messages Rebekah had received.

Lincolnshire Police officers spent about 20 minutes at the property speaking to security guards.

Last week, Coleen launched an incredible social media attack on Rebekah, revealing how she set up an elaborate sting on Instagram to ‘catch’ her leaking fake stories.

Her dramatic revelation enthralled Britain and sparked an angry denial from pregnant Vardy this afternoon who said ‘I don’t need the money’ and pointed out other people have had access to her Instagram account.

Fans have also praised Rooney – calling her ‘Wagatha Christie’ – for the sensational way in which she revealed Vardy was the alleged culprit by concluding her post with a thriller-worthy ‘It’s……… Rebekah Vardy’s account.’

The saga began when Coleen took to social media to reveal she had suspected someone close to her had been betraying her for years and she had conclusive proof that her friend Rebekah was the guilty party.

Vardy is a queen of self-promotion who has risen to the top rank of footballers wives from humble beginnings – the daughter of a BBC local radio DJ and a window cleaner father who has two ex husbands.

Before meeting current husband Jamie, she was working in a Sheffield nightclub and dating a Vauxhall conference football player who has previously accused her of ditching him to ‘trade up’ to Premier League star.

I got you: The feuding pair are said to be communicating through their lawyers in the wake of the bitter row which has dominated social media and newspapers this week (pictured in 2016)

The full statement: Coleen made these shock claims on Instagram after discovering she had been betrayed by someone close to her and she concluded that it was Rebekah’s account

Wag-atha Christie: Coleen tweeted these words back in January, highlighting how she has been trying to get to the bottom of who was leaking stories on her life for some time

Coleen admitted that stories about her basement flooding, returning to TV and gender selection were only viewed by Rebekah and these were subsequently followed by media outlets, including MailOnline.

The Sun has since removed their story about Coleen’s basement flooding after discovering she had made it up  

Coleen wrote: ‘For a few years now someone who I trusted to follow me on my personal Instagram account has been consistently informing The Sun newspaper of my private posts and stories.

‘There has been so much information given to them about me, my friends and my family – all without my permission or knowledge.

‘After a long time of trying to figure out who it could be, for various reasons, I had a suspicion. To try and prove this, I came up with an idea, I blocked everyone from viewing Instagram except ONE account. ‘

‘I don’t need the money’: Rebekah denied all accusations against her minutes after the post and said she had nothing to gain and had no financial motivation

She continued: ‘(Those on my private account must have been wondering why I haven’t had stories on there for a while).

‘Over the past five months I have posted a series of false stories to see if they made their way into the Sun newspaper.

‘And you know what, they did! The story about gender selection in Mexico, the story about returning to TV and then the latest story about the basement flood in my new house.

‘It’s been tough keeping it to myself and not making any comment at all, especially when the stories have been leaked, however I had to. Now I know for certain which account/individual it’s come from.

‘I have saved and screenshotted all the original stories which clearly show just one person has viewed them.

‘It’s……… Rebekah Vardy’s account.’  

At odds: Before the accusations, Coleen and Rebekah were friends, with their respective spouses playing for England around the same time (pictured supporting them at Euro 2016) 

Close friends only: This is believed to be Coleen’s private account – which is separate to the one she shares with the public

She also wrote: ‘This has been a burden in my life for a few years now and finally I have got to the bottom of it……’

Rebekah hit back minutes later on social media and denied the accusations.

She wrote: ‘Can’t believe I’m even having to write this. I’m pregnant & on holiday & am at a loss to why she would do this.

‘I’m now having to take legal advice as I can’t deal with this stress myself when I’m this pregnant.’

She also shared: ‘As I have just said to you on the phone, I wish you had called me if you thought this.

‘I never speak to anyone about you as various journalists who have asked me to over the years can vouch for.

‘If you thought this was happening you can could have told me & I could have changed my passwords to see if it stopped.’

She continued: ‘Over the years various people have had access to my insta & just this week I found I was following people I didn’t know and have never followed myself.

‘I’m not being funny but I don’t need the money, what would I gain from selling stories on you?

‘I liked you a lot Coleen & I’m so upset that you have chosen to do this especially when I’m heavily pregnant.

‘I’m disgusted that I’m even having to deny this. You should have called me the first time this happened [broken heart emoji].’  

Rebekah’s spokesperson also told MailOnline: ‘Please refer to Becky’s social media posts.

Did ‘Dave’ inspire Coleen’s investigation? 

Coleen Rooney may have got the idea for her Vardy sting from a Manchester poker player who tweeted the idea to her back in January. 

His idea came after Coleen first expressed a concern that someone close to her was leaking stories. 

He tweeted: ‘Make a false story tell people different things see which one comes out = find the culprit’ 

He told Daily Star on Wednesday: ‘

‘Firstly I hope Coleen is okay. To have a friend betray her like that is something you don’t expect.’ 

‘It isn’t true, she is now very upset and stressed so has passed it to her legal team to deal with. Such a shame that Coleen didn’t just call her when she had her number.’

Meanwhile, it’s been reported that a Manchester poker player called Dave first gave Coleen the idea for her Vardy sting when he tweeted the idea to her back in January.

His idea came after Coleen first expressed a concern that someone close to her was leaking stories from her private social media account after it was reported she was involved in a car crash while on holiday.

She had written: ‘Thank you for the messages asking if I am ok… the car crash story was completely wrong. I wasn’t involved in a crash… the car was damaged by another car.

‘Someone on my private Instagram [has] seen the picture and is telling or selling stories to a certain newspaper. It’s happened several times now over the past couple of years.

She continued: ‘It’s sad to think someone, who I have accepted to follow me is betraying for either money or to keep a relationship with the press.’

Dave then responded: ‘Make a false story tell people different things see which one comes out = find the culprit’ – and although Coleen didn’t reply to him, she did just that.

He told Daily Star on Wednesday: ‘Firstly I hope Coleen is okay. To have a friend betray her like that is something you don’t expect.’

He has now changed his Twitter bio to read: ‘Detective who recently solved the Coleen Rooney vs Rebekah Vardy case.’

Oh dear; Jamie has reportedly unfollowed Wayne Rooney on social media amid the feud between their respective wives (pictured 2016)

It was claimed back in 2016 that Wayne had ‘warned’ Jamie Vardy about Rebekah in England showdown talks in 2016.

Wayne and Jamie were both part of the England squad at Euro 2016 as the Three Lions were dumped out by Iceland.

The Times claimed Rooney told Vardy to make sure Rebekah didn’t provide a distraction with her social media posts. She had earlier hit out at French police for treating England fans ‘like animals’.

Ex England boss Roy Hodgson was forced to deny reports that Rooney and Vardy had fallen out during the Euro 2016 tournament.  

Hodgson said: ‘I haven’t got a clue what you are referring to. There are absolutely no problems in football terms between Wayne Rooney and Jamie Vardy. 

‘In fact quite the reverse, they are very close friends, both on the field and off the field. I have got no idea what you are referring to.


New footage: As the drama continued over the weekend, Wayne was spotted being served drinks by a waitress wearing a pair of high-waisted thongs as he partied in Washington, DC, on Saturday night

‘I certainly would advise Wayne to give no comment to it because it is obviously one salacious story that someone has managed to spin. It is of no interest to us.’

This comes amid claims Jamie has reportedly unfollowed Wayne Rooney on social media amid the feud between their respective wives Rebekah and Coleen.

On Sunday, The Sun reported the Leicester City striker is so upset with the way things have played out between the I’m A Celeb star, 37, and her fellow WAG, 33, that he has removed the sportsman, also 33, from his Instagram and Twitter accounts.   

A source told the publication: ‘Jamie has always got on well with Wayne, but he won’t stand for having his wife hung out to dry in public like this.’  

The insider added that footballer Jamie is standing by his wife of three years ‘100 per cent’ as she launches a fight to prove her innocence against claims that she sold false stories about Coleen.

United: Coleen returned to wearing her wedding ring four weeks ago, after Wayne reportedly stripped to his boxer shorts in front of three women at a Jacuzzi party in Vancouver, Canada, in August 

Said a friend: ‘He’s totally behind Becky and furious with the Rooneys for the way they have gone about this.   

‘He and Wayne always got on well and he likes him. But he has made his feelings clear. Cutting him off on social media is a totally deliberate snub.’

A spokesperson for Vardy denied he had unfollowed Rooney when contacted by MailOnline for comment.     

As the drama continued over the weekend, Wayne was spotted being served drinks by a waitress wearing a pair of high-waisted thongs as he partied in Washington, DC, on Saturday night.

In a video shared on Instagram, the 33-year-old footballer is seen nodding at the blonde woman after being served as he watched patrons dance to Joe Budden’s rap hit Pump It Up at US capitol hotspot Living Room DC.

Wayne, who plays for MLS team DC United and will return to the UK next year to join Derby County, posed for snapshots with fans.

His wife returned to wearing her wedding ring four weeks ago, after Wayne reportedly stripped to his boxer shorts in front of three women at a Jacuzzi party in Vancouver, Canada, in August.  

On Monday Vinnie Jones branded Coleen and Rebekah an ’embarrassment’ to their husbands during an interview on Good Morning Britain.

The former footballer, 54, appeared on the show to discuss the heartbreaking loss of his wife Tanya, who died from cancer in July after a six-year battle with the disease. 

Comparing Tanya’s behaviour to that of Coleen, 33, and Rebekah, 37, who hit the headlines when the former accused the latter of selling stories about her, Vinnie said: ‘You look at the papers now with the two footballer’s wives. 

‘Tanya got offered hundreds and hundreds of opportunities to do modelling and do stories and she never done none of them.

‘She’s the opposite to these girls now. People ask me “what do you think of these two girls?” and I think it’s quite funny and everything else, what about the embarrassment to their husbands, no thought of the kids.

‘He doesn’t know any different at this point, he’s out playing, he doesn’t care. Even if I’m there, he’s not looking at me, he’s playing with his Lego or whatever he’s doing. His happiness is the main thing at the end of the day.’

Jeremy Edwards hits out at trolls who SLAM him for X Factor: Celebrity

Jeremy Edwards hits out at trolls who SLAM him for his X Factor: Celebrity tantrum… as he jokes the show made him ‘look fat AND sound out of tune’

Jeremy Edwards has spent his Sunday on Twitter joking about his X Factor: Celebrity performance the night before – and hitting back at trolls who have attacked him for it.

The actor – whose audition alongside pal Brendan Cole at Simon Cowell’s lavish LA mansion was shown in the first episode of the new series – took to the micro-blogging site to defend himself, answer tweets from both fans and haters, and to mock his own performance.

He joked: ‘I can’t believe they made me look fat AND sound out of tune! Bast#rds!’

Hitting back: Jeremy Edwards has spent his Sunday on Twitter joking about his X Factor: Celebrity performance the night before – and hitting back at trolls who have attacked him for it

But some took this literally, swiftly launching onto the former Hollyoaks star, 48, to attack him.

One angry troll posted: ‘[You looked] like a complete prick!! Don’t think the show did you any favours!! Guess you could argue it was the edit. But I was surprised to see many tweets from people who’ve met you and clearly have negative experiences with you!!’

Another remarked nastily: ‘Coming across like a right c**t you mate!’ 

To these, Jeremy sarcastically replied with ‘Oh my gosh, am I?’ and ‘I had no idea I was such a vile human being, what should I do?’

‘Don’t you know who I am?’ Singing at Simon Cowell’s lavish LA mansion, Jeremy winked a lot before looking disgruntled when none of the judges recognised him

The actor – whose audition alongside pal Brendan Cole at Simon Cowell’s lavish LA mansion was shown in the first episode of the new series – took to the micro-blogging site to defend himself

He was also slammed for throwing a ‘tantrum’ on the show, too, causing further remarks on Twitter.

He was seen looking disgruntled as judge Louis Walsh told Brendan: ‘I know who you are, you’re from Strictly. But I don’t know who you are.’

This caused Jeremy to throw a strop off stage, as he told his fellow celebrities: ‘Don’t. I’m serious don’t. That was horrible. I don’t want fake bulls**t! They were really mean, that was upsetting.

‘You’re just like, “well we’re trying, we’re off the TV in England and people know us and they love us”. It was a bit mean and I don’t like people being mean.’

He joked: ‘I can’t believe they made me look fat AND sound out of tune! Bast#rds!’

And fans were less than impressed by the duo’s performance and Jeremy’s diva behaviour with dozens taking to Twitter.

One wrote: ‘I had no clue Jeremy Edwards was such an arrogant turnip.’

Someone else added: ‘His reaction cracked me up so much. I can’t tell if he is being serious or it’s a parody?!’

Edwards and Cole: Professional dancer Brendan, 43, made his debut with Jeremy on Celebrity X Factor on Saturday

Reaction: Jeremy posted a tweet later on Sunday afternoon, clearly upset with reaction he’d received

To which another viewer responded: ‘I reckon he was totally serious. His mid-song winks were something else.’

But Jeremy posted a tweet later on Sunday afternoon, clearly upset with reaction he’d received: ‘To all the people calling me names, criticising me. That’s cool. You are entitled to your opinion and I respect that right. Please bear in mind that these comments affect my family, which is not cool. So please think before you type.❤️’

He also tweeted: ‘I’m actually an ok singer. You can hear the nerves in my voice! I thought we were very entertaining overall!

‘I’ve taken a bit of a kicking which I know I should brush off but it’s easier said than done!’ 

Car crash! Fans were less than impressed by the duo’s performance and Jeremy’s diva behaviour with dozens taking to Twitter

Brendan also took to Twitter, posting: ‘For all of you who watched me and Jem on @TheXFactor tonight…. Sorry we weren’t better. Lost my voice on the day so couldn’t do my harmonies, nerves took over and our soft love song really didn’t work. Eeek #dontgiveupthedayjob’

To which Jeremy replied: ‘What he said!’

The X Factor: Celebrity continues next Saturday on ITV.
