Last Christmas starring Emilia Clarke is PANNED by critics

Last Christmas reviews: Emilia Clarke fronted film is PANNED by critics as they label the ‘toe-curling’ movie a ‘beautifully wrapped Christmas gift that’s filled with rotten turkey leftover’

Last Christmas has been widely panned by critics.

The festive film, starring Emilia Clarke, Henry Golding and Emma Thompson, has been criticised for its inability to cement itself as a classic Christmas movie, with others dubbing it a ‘clunky, charmless disappointment.’

Assessment of the movie, which is inspired by the late George Michael and even boasts new music from him, proved to be so negative that others couldn’t fathom what the Wham! frontman ‘had done to deserve this’ 

‘Unintentionally funny and creepy’: Last Christmas, starring Emilia Clarke, Henry Golding and Emma Thompson, has been widely panned by critics

In the film, written by Emma Thompson and her husband Greg Wise, Emilia’s character Kate, who has often been unlucky, finds work as a Santa’s elf for a department store and unexpectedly finds love with Tom, played by Henry Golding. 

However, the movie’s merry message left a sour taste in the mouth of many. 

Giving the movie a measly two stars, The Guardian branded Last Christmas  ‘unintentionally funny and unintentionally creepy.’ 

‘The combination of Michael’s music, a cosy festive aesthetic, picturesque London scenery and an irresistible fascination over what the plot morphs into does make Last Christmas sort of digestible in a half-watching-while-drunk-on-eggnog kind of way but this really is a clunky, charmless disappointment. Last Christmas is, or at least should be, cancelled.’

‘Clunky and charmless’: The festive film, starring Emilia Clarke, Henry Golding and Emma Thompson, has been criticised for its inability to cement itself as a classic Christmas movie

Meanwhile, Variety says: ‘As much as we go into “Last Christmas” eager to see a nicely wrapped package of acerbic fun, the film falls short of that. It’s not so much clever, toasty, and affectionate as it is the faux version of those things. 

‘The script feels like a rejected first draft with unfunny filler one-liners and a scrappy, ill-thought through narrative. It’s a beautifully wrapped Christmas gift that’s filled with rotten turkey leftovers.’

Another one star rating was given away by BBC, who raged: ‘What did George Michael do to deserve this? Why should the singer-songwriter and former Wham! frontman be associated with a brutally unfunny and contrived romantic comedy when he’s no longer around to object?

Oh no! Assessment of the movie, which is inspired by the late George Michael, proved to be so negative that others couldn’t fathom what the Wham! frontman ‘had done to deserve this’

‘Its visuals are so twinkly and its sentiments are so mushy that some people will see it as a holiday treat. But it’s appropriate that Kate spends half the film wearing elf boots which curl up at the end, because Last Christmas really is toe-curling stuff.’      

The Digital Spy reviewed: ‘It doesn’t all quite come together for a true Christmas classic, even if it wears its tinsel firmly on its sleeve. There’s plenty of festive feels in Last Christmas, but it’s hard to imagine you returning to it year after year.’

Meanwhile, there were a few favourable reviews, with The Hollywood Reporter claims, ‘It’s a misfire by just about any measure, but it earns some warm feelings for its determination not to be like anything else currently in circulation.

Variety reviewed: ‘The script feels like a rejected first draft with unfunny filler one-liners and a scrappy, ill-thought through narrative’

‘Little can be said about the final act without stealing the film’s thunder. But a viewer who hasn’t been put off by one thing or another in the film’s first hour may well go along with its last left turn.’ 

Empire, which gives the movie a generous 3 out of 5 stars, claims: ‘The damp chemistry between Golding and Clarke takes some time to light, but eventually does so in the hands of a sweet, smart, funny script by Emma Thompson (who also plays Kate’s difficult mother), Greg Wise and Bryony Kimmings…

‘While it won’t be remembered as one of the great Christmas films, Last Christmas delivers enough moments of heart and humour to keep the festive spirit alive.’

Last Christmas hits cinemas November 7 in the UK, and November 8 in the USA.

Asteroid size of bus zips by Earth closer than the Moon ‘hours’ after NASA spots it

An asteroid the size of a double-decker bus has skimmed perilously close to Earth – and NASA almost missed it.

The space rock cruised past at speeds of 19,000 mph, passing three times closer to our planet than the distance from Earth to the Moon.

Terrifyingly, NASA admitted the flyby over the weekend wasn’t picked up by its asteroid-tracking radars until it was too late to act.

The rock was only spotted a day before it rocketed past our planet, according to NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

NASA had just enough time to calculate its orbit and determine it posed no threat to Earth before the flyby took place.

Known as 2019 VA, the 42-foot object passed within 65,100 miles of Earth on the afternoon of November 2.

That may sound like quite a distance, but to put it into context, the Moon orbits Earth at a distance of around 240,000 miles.

NASA considers anything that passes within 120 million miles of Earth a “Near Earth Object” that may threaten our planet.

Worryingly, 2019 VA was only slightly smaller than the famous Chelyabinsk meteor that detonated over Russia in 2013.

More than 1,500 people were injured by the explosion, with 7,200 buildings damaged by the enormous shock wave it produced.

This weekend’s flyby is one of several close passes nearly missed by NASA this year.

Last month, the agency admitted it almost missed a huge asteroid that skimmed past Earth.

A 450-foot space rock deemed “the largest to pass this close to Earth in 100 years” was missed in September due to poor weather conditions.

While these close misses are more than a little unnerving, there’s no need to panic just yet.

NASA believes none of the thousands of NEOs that it keeps an eye on are currently on a collision course with our planet.

“NASA knows of no asteroid or comet currently on a collision course with Earth, so the probability of a major collision is quite small,” it says.

“In fact, as best as we can tell, no large object is likely to strike the Earth any time in the next several hundred years.”

Even if they were to hit our planet, asteroids of this size would not wipe out life as we know it.

“Global catastrophes” are only triggered when objects larger than 3,000-feet long smash into Earth, according to NASA.

Nigel Farage is condemned by Arron Banks for splitting Leave vote

Brexit Party row as Nigel Farage is slammed by Arron Banks for splitting Leave vote as he claims closest political ally just wants to star in TV debates

  • Nigel Farage accused of risking Brexit by fielding Brexit Party candidates
  • Arron Banks told this paper the tactic would split the Tory Leaver vote 
  • The pair worked together under the Leave.EU banner during 2016 referendum

Nigel Farage has been condemned by his closest political ally for threatening to wreck Boris Johnson’s Election hopes by fielding a Brexit Party candidate in every seat.

Arron Banks, who campaigned with Mr Farage under the Leave.EU banner during the 2016 referendum, told The Mail on Sunday that the Brexit Party leader was risking the entire project by splitting the Tory vote.

He accused Mr Farage of being a ‘dog in the manger’ about Mr Johnson’s EU deal because he wanted to feature in the TV debates between the party leaders.

Mr Farage infuriated Downing Street with Friday’s vow that his party would stand in seats across the country unless the Prime Minister scrapped the withdrawal agreement he struck with Brussels.

Nigel Farage has been accused of being a ‘dog in the manger’ about Mr Johnson’s EU deal because he wanted to feature in the TV debates between the party leaders

Mr Farage also threatened to write to every British household accusing the Tories of a ‘sell-out’.

Mr Johnson has flatly ruled out forming any pact with Mr Farage, even though Tory strategists fear that votes lost to Mr Farage in tight marginals could deny Conservatives an overall majority on December 12.

Mr Banks, who was also a key donor to Ukip when Mr Farage was leader, said: ‘He is being very dog in the manger about it. Like everything in life, what is the point of doing something if you can’t win?

‘I don’t think he will go through with his threat, but if he does, it is the wrong thing to do. He risks splitting the vote in some seats and letting a Lib Dem through the middle to win – a party which wants to cancel Brexit altogether.’

Happier times: Arron Banks campaigned with Mr Farage under the Leave.EU banner during the 2016 referendum, and was also a major donor to UKIP

Mr Banks believes it is better for the Tories to win a healthy majority in the Election so that MPs can pass Mr Johnson’s ‘imperfect’ agreement than risk staying in the EU for much longer.

He added: If Boris wins a decent majority, he will be in a position of strength to negotiate a good trade deal with the EU. I think Nigel is just playing the deck of cards he has in his hand because he wants to take part in the television debates. But I’m on the naughty step with Nigel. He knows I disagree with him on this.’

Mr Banks’s views were echoed by Catherine Blaiklock, the founder and first leader of the Brexit Party, who tweeted yesterday: ‘How can Boris cave into a public demand akin to blackmail. Step back and rethink. The deal offered is not perfect, but nothing is ever perfect. Help Boris win, step back and take the Marxists on, not the Tories.’

But Mr Farage remained defiant last night, telling the MoS: ‘I just want Brexit, and this is not it. It just kicks the can down the road for three years with conditions that mean we will never be free of EU rules. A reset makes sense’

But Mr Farage remained defiant last night, telling the MoS: ‘I just want Brexit, and this is not it. It just kicks the can down the road for three years with conditions that mean we will never be free of EU rules. A reset makes sense.’

Mr Farage used the Westminster launch of the Brexit Party’s Election campaign on Friday to give Mr Johnson two weeks to drop his withdrawal agreement, saying they could build an alliance in about 150 seats in Labour Leave areas in Wales, the Midlands and the North, where the Tories should stand aside.

Mr Farage said of Mr Johnson’s EU deal: ‘He is trying to sell a second-hand car. He has polished up the bonnet but actually underneath nothing has changed. This is Mrs May’s appalling surrender treaty.

If he decides he can go on selling this as Brexit, then good luck to him, because I think by the time December 12 comes along, the country will understand it is not Brexit and we will make sure of that.’

Mr Farage made his threat after Donald Trump told him during an LBC radio phone-in that Mr Farage and Mr Johnson would be ‘an unstoppable force’ if they linked up during the Election and could do ‘something terrific’.

But when asked about the prospect, Mr Johnson said: ‘I want to be very, very clear that voting for any other party than this Government, this Conservative Government… is basically tantamount to putting Jeremy Corbyn in.’

Harvey Weinstein attacked by actress screaming ‘I’m standing 4ft from a f***ing rapist’ at bar – The Sun

ASTONISHING footage shows an actress shouting at alleged rapist Harvey Weinstein during an event for young performers in New York.

Zoe Stuckless was thrown out of the Downtime Bar in Manhattan after confronting the disgraced Oscar winning film producer Wednesday night.


Another woman, a female comic, who called Weinstein “Freddy Krueger” during her stand-up routine claims she was also chucked out of the event.

The comedian says she was branded a “c**t” by someone allegedly in the shamed movie mogul’s entourage.

Zoe watched as the pervy producer chatted with “young, beautiful women and a posse of men around him” at the private event in Alphabet City in the Big Apple.

In the video, shared online, she can be heard screaming: “Nobody’s gonna say anything? Nobody’s really going to say anything?

“I’m going to stand four feet from a f***ing rapist? And nobody’s going to say anything?”

MOGUL SHAMED

Meanwhile, Weinstein — who is accused of sexual misconduct against some 70 women — sat quietly in a darkly lit booth surrounded by his entourage.

The film producer strongly denies all allegations of sexual assault made against him.

Zoe said her act of defiance got her booted from the bar, which was hosting Actors Hour, a ticketed event billed as a “speakeasy for artists.”

The female comic who was allegedly ejected attacked the alleged sex attacker in her routine.

She was filmed saying: “Can we address the elephant in the room?”

However, as she attacked Weinstein, audible boos can be heard from the crowd.


Zoe claims male comic even stroked the fallen filmmaker’s ego by asking: “who produced Good Will Hunting” and then saying: “Because that movie is f***ing amazing.”

After his set, she said the comedian stopped by Weinstein’s table to chat and both were smiling.

“At that point, I can feel shame and anger and fear bubbling in my stomach,” she said.

“I was still waiting and hoping someone else would say something, that the organisers would say something, one of the performers and nobody did.”

So she took it upon herself, walking up to his table and asked what his name was when “his bodyguards started saying, ‘It’s none of your business, you have no right to ask that question.’”

She says she was then escorted out.

A rep for the bar confirmed that both Weinstein’s security and event security “asked her to leave” and that she did.

'F***ING MONSTER'

Comic Amber Rollo said she also confronted Weinstein – and was also kicked out.

“I went in and called him a f***ing monster and told him he should disappear,” she tweeted.

“His friend/bodyguard/goon/family member called me a c–t and I really really wanted to lunge over the table and strangle him… I restrained myself…

“There was a woman at the table with him who gently guided me out.”

“I’m shocked because he was invited to an event put on by and for artists,” Rollo added.

Weinstein said in a statement through his rep: “I am happy to address anyone’s questions.


What are the charges against Weinstein?

  • Dozens of women have accused Weinstein of sexual misconduct since October 2017.
  • He is currently charged with one count of rape and two of sexual assault.
  • The charges relate to three separate women.
  • One of the charges was brought by a woman who claims the movie mogul performed a forcible sex act on her in 2006.
  • The new charges – filed on July 2 – join previous ones alleging forcible sex acts in 2004 and 2013
  • The updated indictment alleges that he "engaged in oral sex by forcible compulsion" around July 10, 2006.

“We should all be offered the courtesy to voice opinions and be heard, and to even get answers. I am glad we all still have these rights.”

A spokesperson for Weinstein said whoever used the word “c**t” was not employed by Weinstein.

The bar rep said that none of the staff had recognised Weinstein when he arrived around 9pm with two women because “he used a walker and looked pretty beat up.”

When he was confronted by Stuckless he “stayed stoic” then “asked her to try to calm down and talk to him,” the rep said.

“He didn’t seem worked up about the incident, he just sat back down and carried on drinking water. It was weird,” the rep said.

Weinstein had been to the event for young actors before and must have been invited by the organiser, they said.

Event boss Alexandra Laliberte wrote on Instagram that Weinstein was “not invited by the organiser or anyone associated with this organisation.”

The events are ticketed with the location being kept secret before the show.

Another rep for the bar said they had nothing to do with the guest list.

They added: “A company called @actorshour rented our bar for a private event, with a guest list all their own.

“Shortly into the evening, one guest began heckling another, causing a disturbance to everyone in attendance.

“After several requests to stop were ignored, we kindly asked the heckler to leave.”

A version of this story originally appeared on The New York Post.

Celebrities Who Swear by Intermittent Fasting

Intermittent fasting: You’ve heard stars rave about it, but what exactly is it? And more importantly, does the diet trend work?

First off, intermittent fasting is almost exactly what it sounds like. It generally consists of going without food for a period of time, then eating normally. The most popular type — 16:8 — consists of getting all of your calories for the day in an eight-hour window (say, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.), then fasting for 16 hours overnight. Another method is the 5:2, in which you eat normally for five days a week, then restrict your calories severely (typically 500 for women) for the other two.

As for weight loss, the stars know what they’re doing! “In a nutshell, intermittent fasting works,” NYC-based dietitian Keri Glassman tells Us. “Here’s why: For most people, you’re restricting calories and largely cutting out food you shouldn’t be eating anyway.” However, warns the nutrition pro, “That doesn’t mean that I would necessarily recommend it for everyone.” The fasting method “requires regimented commitment,” she notes, adding that for some, it can lead to unhealthy eating and “set the person up for yo-yo dieting.” The best candidates, Glassman explains, are already-healthy eaters who don’t mind skipping breakfast and can make solid food decisions even when they’re hungry. Above all, she says, besides having the willpower to fast, “you need to eat a healthy, balanced, real-food diet during the other hours.” Scroll down to see the svelte celebs who swear intermittent fasting works for them!

Four-bedroom cottage built by Rothschild family on sale for £1.85M

That’s quite a cottage! Four-bedroom 19th century home designed by Sir Christopher Wren for the Rotschild family boasting a 56ft indoor swimming pool goes on sale for £1.85million

  • Four-bedroom cottage built by the famed Rothschild banking dynasty on the market for £1.85 million
  • Thrift cottage, in Hertforshire, boasts a 56-foot swimming pool and hot tub as well as a large conservatory
  • It also has a double-garage, games room, and 1.84 acre garden that includes koi carp filled ponds 

A four-bedroom cottage built by the Rothschild family banking dynasty in the 19th century has gone on the market for £1.85million. 

Thrift Cottage in Tring, Hertfordshire, boasts a 56-foot swimming pool and hot tub, as well as a large conservatory and a Japanese garden with interlinking ponds filled with koi carp.

It was erected by the bankers, who ran their business in the area during the Second World War, after Lionel de Rothschild bought the Tring Park Mansion and estate as a wedding present for his son, Nathaniel.

The 17th century house was designed by Sir Christopher Wren, the same man who drew the plans for St Paul’s cathedral and the monument to the Wren library at Cambridge University.

The property built by the Rothschild family banking dynasty in the 19th century has been put on the market for £1.85million

This image shows the games room, which currently contains a pool table, that is located above the detached garage

Another photograph shows another of the house’s four sitting rooms, which features wallpaper which replicates a fake bookcase

Stunning photos from the property, which is being sold by Michael Graham estate agents, show a large pool with a bridge over part of it next to a hot tub.

They also reveal a double-garage with games room above, spacious sitting room, and 1.84-acre garden with a mixture of modern and period features.

Floorplans also reveal that the house has three bathrooms and four sitting rooms.

The Rothschild family traces its lineage back to the 1760s when a member established their banking business in Frankfurt, Germany.

As the business grew, they managed to take their bank to four other great capitals in Europe: London, Paris, Vienna, and Naples.

Floorplans also reveal that the house holds an impressive three bathrooms and a luxurious four sitting rooms. Pictured, the house exterior

Stunning photos from inside the property reveal a sitting room and kitchen area. The house also boasts a double-garage with a games room above

The house, which had the swimming pool and hot tub added by the current owners, sits in a glorious 1.84-acre garden

The main red-carpeted staircase in the property (pictured), leads to the four bedrooms upstairs

They first came to Hertfordshire in 1838, when Nathan de Rothschild started renting the Tring Park mansion as a summer home. 

Lord Rothschild’s family lived and grew up at the park until the death of Lady Rothschild in 1935. It was then used by the bank during the Second World War before being taken over as an Arts Educational School.

The Woodland Trust said that after the Rothschilds purchased the house at auction for £230,000 – or £15million today – they made several alterations including the demolition of two outdoor pavilions.

The family left their mark on the area, with their funds being responsible for designing the local pub and setting up the area’s Natural History Museum.

This is one of the sitting rooms in the house, which is complete with a large window looking out over the 1.84-acre garden

The property also has a large double-garage with games room at the front of the house (Pictured: The entrance to Thrift cottage)

Rachel Weisz found it liberating being directed by woman in BlackWidow

Rachel Weisz found it ‘liberating’ being directed by a woman alongside Scarlett Johansson in Black Widow: ‘You are free from the history of ownership’

Rachel Weisz is opening up about several things including her new female-directed Marvel movie Black Widow and why she’s not brave in a new interview.

The 49 year old actress was named as one of this year’s The Greats by New York Times Magazine along with Louis Vuitton designer Nicolas Ghesquiere, artist/sculptor Nick Cave and architect Shigeru Ban.

Each of these Greats are individuals, who, ‘in mastering their crafts, have changed their fields — and the culture at large. They have in common an essential and fierce desire to communicate, whether through beauty or provocation, or both.’

Opening up: Rachel Weisz is opening up about several things including her new female-directed Marvel movie Black Widow and why she’s not brave in a new interview

Weisz plays Melina Vostokoff in Black Widow, otherwise known in the Marvel comics as Iron Maiden, who the actress called, ‘a pretty tough chick’ at Comic-Con in July.

Weisz is joined by Scarlett Johansson as the title character, Natasha ‘Black Widow’ Romanoff and Florence Pugh’s Yelena Belova, who are all, ‘skilled assassins, and at least one is on the side of justice.’

Black Widow is also the first movie to be directed solely by a woman, Cate Shortland, after this year’s blockbuster Captain Marvel which was directed by the team of Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck.

Stunning: T Magazine shared more snaps of Weisz from their photo shoot

Tough chick: Weisz plays Melina Vostokoff in Black Widow, otherwise known in the Marvel comics as Iron Maiden, who the actress called, ‘a pretty tough chick’ at Comic-Con in July

As it turns out, Weisz had long wanted to work with Shortland, after admiring her 2004 film Somersault starring up and coming actress Abbie Cornish.

‘(Abbie) is a beautiful, sexy girl, and a lot of it is about her sexuality. Cate didn’t shy away from that. But she wasn’t objectified,’ Weisz said. 

‘Watching that, as a woman, you know immediately when a character is subject or object — she was always subject. I had never seen anything like it. For that reason, I never forgot it.’

Director admiration: As it turns out, Weisz had long wanted to work with Shortland, after admiring her 2004 film Somersault starring up and coming actress Abbie Cornish

Weisz added that she would often think about a project and say, ‘If only we could get Cate Shortland to direct it,’ and she had tried to collaborate with her before but it didn’t work out.

She also reflected about a scene in Black Widow where there were two women across from another that she found ‘liberating.’

‘There is something that happens in a scene when a woman is across from another woman,’ said Weisz. ‘It sounds really pompous, but you are free from the history of ownership — I really mean that. It’s liberating.’

Weisz’s breakthrough role was in 1999’s big budget blockbuster The Mummy, alongside Brendan Fraser, but through the past 20 years, she’s primarily starred in smaller projects until Black Widow. 

This is her first foray into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and the actress revealed that she enjoyed her time on the set and was surprised about how passionate the producers were about the story.

‘It doesn’t feel Hollywood to me, big budget — it feels like the people there are the stewards and guardians of this storytelling they care about,’ she said. 

Breakthrough: Weisz’s breakthrough role was in 1999’s big budget blockbuster The Mummy, alongside Brendan Fraser, but through the past 20 years, she’s primarily starred in smaller projects until Black Widow

Weisz was praised by director Yorgos Lanthimos, her director in The Favourite and The Lobster, who said, ‘I don’t think she even knows where she is going most of the time. Which is very brave, and a rare quality. Actors want to have control.’

Her co-star in The Favourite, Olivia Colman, who won an Oscar for playing Queen Anne, also called her ‘utterly brave,’ but Weisz dismissed that notion.

‘I’m shy in real life,” she said. ‘But if I have a role in the script and a story to tell, I’m not going to shy away.’

Black Widow will kick off the summer movie season next year, hitting theaters on May 1, 2020.

Argentine Projects by Underground, Kapow, The Mediapro Studio, Pitched At Mipcom

Underground Producciones’ “Qué pasó con Bonorino?,” Kapow’s “Mundiales” and The Mediapro Studio’s “@Mamita” figure among 11 TV series projects pitched today at the fourth edition of Mipcom’s Snack’n Screen Argentina showcase.

Comedy and thrillers stand out as the dominant genres of this year’s selection, which also takes in animation production (Manuel Alejandro Vivas’ “Sombras en los juegos”), web series (Andrés Fechtenholz’s “Save the Date”) and interactive microseries “Alt Esc,” by Adrián Garelik.

Three of the stories take place within the framework of sports events, used to construct thrillers or social dramas; a further two look into the consequences of digital addiction for people.

Taking place Oct. 15, co-organized by the Argentine INCAA film and TV institute and the Argentine Investment & Trade Promotion Agency, the event aims to attract the attention of international buyers to some of country’s most promising TV and streaming series projects.

“Qué pasó con Bonorino?” (“Whatever Happened To Bonorino?”) is a black comedy created by Sebastián Ortega (“El marginal,” “Un gallo para Esculapio”) at Underground, the Argentine company which has recently been acquired by NBCUniversal Telemundo.

“Bonorino” tells the adventures and misadventures of four friends for whom an event  -the discovery of the corpse of a high-school mate – change their lives in an extraordinary way.

Teaming international TV giant The Mediapro Studio’s Argentine arm Promofilm with production house Nah! Contenidos, gender comedy “@Mamita” aims to break conventional paradigms regarding women’s role.

The series follows Lucrecia, a 35 year-old woman who overcomes her family and friends pressure regarding maternity, becoming a successful influencer which feigns a fake pregnancy and motherhood.

Buenos Aires-based Kapow, who produced TV series “Stockholm,” a pioneering Neflix pickup in Argentina, and operates a partnership deal with Fremantle, will be pitching TV drama “Mundiales” (“World Cups,”) created by Marcelo Camaño.

The series’ first season is set on the eve of 1978 Argentina Fifa World Cup tournament, focusing on how it’s seen through the eyes of a child, showing his passion for soccer, and from the point of view of his father, bearing witness to the political whitewash and other dark interests behind the event’s organization.

Produced by Rodrigo Cantisano, co-founder of Utópica Media, “Síndrome” (“Syndrome”) is a project co-developed with CineCorp in Perú, which Fox Telecolombia has reportedly just boarded.

In development, with 20% financed, the project was already pitched in Digiseries sidebar at Conecta Fiction 2019 in Pamplona, Spain.

“Alt Esc,” an interactive thriller pitched by Garelik, marks the first original series of Flixxo, the online peer-to-peer video distribution platform financed with cryptocurrencies.

Starring youtuber Dai Hernández, the short format series turns on a young man admitted into a rehab clinic for virtuality additions, where he meets weird people from different digital tribes (selfies, gamers, hackers) who will help him to investigate the dark secrets the center hides.

Animated documentary “Sombras en los juegos” (“Darkness in the Games”) transcends the sports chronicles, bringing back to life characters that were affected by social, political, racial and gender issues during the Olympic Games.

Seven of the projects selected have won development and/or production prizes supported by the INCAA.

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.

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.

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.

Flair for fashion: Shiloh displayed her own flair for fashion in a black jacket with gold and silver stripes, which she teamed with black trousers and a pair of Converse shoes

Her golden locks framed her face in a series of impeccably coiffed curls, while large statement earrings served as her main accessories.

While Zahara and Shiloh joined their mother, not seen at the event were Angelina’s other children – Maddox, 18; Pax, 15, and 11-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox.

For several years, Angelina raised the children with her former husband Brad Pitt, 55, who she wed in August 2014 after almost a decade together.

However, their relationship came to an end just two years later, when Angelina filed for divorce from Brad.

Screen star Brad is the biological father of Shiloh, Vivienne, and Knox, while he adopted Maddox, Pax and Zahara. 

Pucker up: Angelina greeted her glamorous co-star with a friendly kiss as she made her arrival


Talk: As cameras flashed, the screen stars enjoyed a private chat while embracing one another

Angelina’s outing at the premiere came hours after she enjoyed a shopping spree with three of her six children, Shiloh, and Vivienne and Knox.

The actress cut a typically low-key figure in a form-fitting navy jumper with a pair of chic black trousers during the outing with her brood.

Making the most of their day out, the family are believed to have enjoyed a trip to the museum before venturing into both a bookshop and a toy shop.

Angelina appeared to have bought Shiloh a toy gun set called Set De Chasse, which includes two targets, a pigeon, and a rabbit, and a toy shotgun.

Disney beginners may not recall that Maleficent is the evil fairy in the classic 1959 animation Sleeping Beauty, and that Angelina played her in a 2014 live-action film.

Just five years on, Jolie is playing her again in Mistress Of Evil, still wearing black horns, fighting fairies and sorting out her conflicted maternal feelings towards sweet Princess Aurora (Elle Fanning).

Unbeknown to Aurora, Ingrith is plotting to use their marriage to divide humans and fairies forever, and it is up to Maleficent to try and stop the impending war.

Chiwetel Ejiofor joins the cast as the leader of an army of fairies just like Maleficent, while Harris will replace Brenton Thwaites as Prince Phillip.

The original 2014 film grossed a whopping $758million worldwide, and brought another success addition to Disney’s series of dark fairy tales.

Mixed race couple vilified by racists after appearing in Lidl ads

Mixed race couple vilified by racists after they appeared in Lidl ads in Ireland flee their home to start new life in Britain

  • Fiona Ryan, 33, and fiance Jonathan Mathis, 32, appeared in ads from September
  • The couple had been living in Country Meath, Ireland, since last year
  • One of the prominent provocateurs was former journalist Gemma O’Doherty

A mixed race couple who were vilified by racists after they appeared in Lidl ads have been forced to flee their Irish home to start new life in Britain.

Fiona Ryan, 33, and her fiance Jonathan Mathis, 32, from Country Meath, Ireland, had appeared in campaigns for the supermarket chain across the country from early September.

They featured in the ads with their 22-month-old son Jonah. 

Fiona Ryan, 33, and her fiance Jonathan Mathis, 32, had appeared in ad campaigns for the supermarket chain from across the country from early September

The couple, from Country Meath, Ireland, featured in the ads with their 22-month-old son Jonah

But the family’s inclusion in the ads was met with racist remarks and even death threats towards their toddler.

Some members of the public were even calling for a boycott of Lidl in reaction to their appearance.

The couple have since decided to flee to Britain in the face of the backlash. 

Speaking to RTE’s Late Late Show on Friday, Ms Ryan said: ‘They are talking about harming and death to my partner and my child so I am not going to stay in a country [where] this is allowed.’

Ms Ryan is from Ireland originally and is an actor. 

She moved to London when she was 19, which is where he met her construction-worker fiance, before the pair moved back to Ireland to start a family. 

Mr Mathis grew up in Liverpool, and then the Costwolds, after moving from Brazil as a child.

He added that he was upset and angry that: ‘These people are looking at my child and saying all this hurtful stuff. He’s a completely innocent child.’ 

One of the most prominent provocateurs was former journalist Gemma O’Doherty.

In a tweet that was posted alongside a billboard featuring the mixed-race family, she wrote: ‘German dump @lidl_ireland gaslighting the Irish people with their multicultural version of “The Ryans”. 

‘Kidding no-one! Resist the Great Replacement wherever you can by giving this kip a wide berth. #ShopIrish #BuyIrish.’

Her post was met with a flurry of racist comments with other social media users making reference to ‘race and ancestor betrayal’. 

Ms O’Doherty’s tweet has since been deleted and she later labelled reports on her abuse targeting the ad  as ‘fake news’ and ‘hysteria’.

The supermarket were then forced to issue their own tweet in defense of the couple. 

Posting on their Irish account, they said: ‘After offensive and racist tweets from Gemma O’Doherty we have decided to block and report her to @Twitter. 

‘We are proud of our multicultural & diverse team and our customers. We are proud to work with, and serve, each and every one of them. 

The Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar also condemned the abuse

‘Everyone is welcome in our store. 

‘We are contacting the Ryan family regarding this online abuse and will be providing support after this unprovoked attack. We thank everyone for their kind words.’

The Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar also condemned the abuse. 

He branded the social media attacks on the couple as ‘disgusting’.

The couple have since criticised Ireland’s police force, the Garda, for how they have handled the situation.

The police reportedly asked them to read through the abusive tweets themselves to collect evidence and were then told that it was a civil matter. 

Ms Ryan previously said that they did not harbour any ill-will towards Ms O’Doherty as she has done them a favour by highlighting a weakness in hate crime legislation in Ireland.

Murder of Anna Borntreger by Samuel Borntreger highlighted

The murder of Anna Borntreger by her husband, Samuel Borntreger, is highlighted in the latest episode of Murder In Amish Country on Investigation Discovery.

On December 4, 2006, Anna died from what authorities believed to be a liver issue. Within a year of her death, Samuel remarried and had four more children. He then relocated to Summer Shade, Kentucky.

However, nearly 10 years after her death, in 2016, Samuel went to the police station and confessed to killing the 26-year-old mother of four—the youngest was 10 months old at the time of her death.

Samuel told investigators that he had fallen out of love with Anna and began putting antifreeze in her drinks and battery acid in her rectum while they were living together on a farm in Harrison County, Missouri.

He was working as a cabinetmaker and later served as a minister in his Amish church. Samuel told officers that he decided to come clean about how his wife died nearly a decade later because he said his conscious was bothering him.

Anna’s body was exhumed from an Amish cemetery in Harrison County and sent to the lab for toxicology testing.

Samuel was arrested in Kentucky at the Barren County Detention Center and later extradited to a Missouri jail where he was held without bond. The then-39-year-old was charged with first-degree murder.

When residents in Harrison County ascertained what Samuel had done, they were stunned. Some stated that he was well known and liked in the community, and they had no idea he was capable of murdering his wife.

In 2016, Samuel accepted a plea deal and pled guilty to second-degree murder. Chariton County Judge Terry Tschannen sentenced him to 25 years in prison.

Woman, 70, ‘fleeced’ by conman says she can’t ‘trust anyone’

‘I don’t want to love again’: Woman, 70, ‘fleeced’ by conman who inspired ITV drama ‘Can’t Buy Me Love’ says she can’t ‘trust anyone’ – as police hunt ‘charmer’ who swindled £400,000 from three grandmothers

  • Hazel Wilkins met John Eric Wells online and their relationship blossomed 
  • In 2017 conman Wells fled with £63,000 of Hazel’s life savings and left her 
  • Hazel has now said she ‘feels really empty’ and ‘doesn’t want to love again’ 

A woman has said she ‘doesn’t want to love again’ after being fleeced out of thousands of pounds by the ‘Casanova conman’.

Hazel Wilkins from West Sussex first starting talking to John Eric Wells online in 2014 and a relationship blossomed from there.  

Not long after their romance began, Wells starting asking Hazel for money and taking out loans in her name before fleeing, leaving her in a mountain of debt.

Now the 71-year-old has told how she ‘can’t trust anyone’ following the relationship, as South Yorkshire Police continue to hunt the 61-year-old who swindled £400,000 from three grandmothers. 

Speaking on the This Morning sofa, Hazel broke down in tears after Holly asked how she felt about being left by a man she had made so many plans with.

‘It’s very hard to explain. It leaves me really empty. ‘I don’t want to love again’.

Hazel Wilkins appeared on This Morning today with daughter Lynsey Coleman to talk about her relationship with the ‘Casanova conman’

Her daughter Lynsey, who appeared alongside her mother on the show then tells how the situation has left her mother unable to do a lot of things.

‘It’s not nice, she has changed as a person and she has lost her confidence completely.’

Wells fled with £63,000 of Hazel’s savings in 2017 and she has now been left paying off the debt he left behind. 

Wells had previously been jailed for three years after faking a lottery win in 1996, later claiming the scam was an attempt to save his marriage.

His lottery plot was turned into film Can’t Buy Me Love, which starred Martin Kemp and was penned by EastEnders’ writer Tony Jordan.

Now Hazel is adamant she ‘can’t’ love again and said: ‘I wont trust anybody. I’ve got to the point where I’m hiding my purse, I don’t trust anybody. I trust my daughters but no one else’. 

Hazel said she felt her life had been ruined by Wells. She said that before she met Wells she had a good job.

‘I had money in the bank, not millions but enough, I had never been in debt had a nice life and beautiful home.’ 

When she first starting talking to Wells online in 2014 she said they would just chat about the everyday and he informed her he owned a business and had lots of different companies in other countries.

She said she hadn’t been impressed by that and she was more attracted to the ‘everyday person’.  

Their relationship started to move on after they met in Crawley. When she first met him Hazel said they got on very well.

Kemp starred alongside ex-EastEnders actress Michelle Collins as Wells’ wife Kathy

‘We had loads of laughs.’ She added that she can no longer remember the attractive personality which drew her to Wells.

In December 2015 he proposed to her in front of her friends and family.

However, the couple then had four weddings dates that were cancelled, but Hazel said she heard the alarm bells.

‘You do heart the alarm bells but you don’t want to recognise them, you don’t want to believe it’s true because you love this person.’

His crime was later turned into an ITV movie called Can’t Buy Me Love in 2004 starring Martin Kemp as the painter/decorator

He cancelled the weddings due to business engagements and also blamed the deaths of people in his organisation.

Wells asked Hazel for £2,000 shortly into the relationship and claimed he needed it because he couldn’t get to a nearby bank.

He borrowed £15,000 from her sister and £5,000 from her daughter and also took loans out in Hazel’s name.

‘He left me with so much debt, i’m still paying debts from a loan of £10,000.’ 

But when Wells kept going away Hazel became suspicious. 

‘There was always an excuse to go away. He told me to look for a £3million house and he came back to look at it.’

She finally decided enough was enough and ended it with Wells. A while after a woman called Lynne called him who informed her she had been living with Wells while the two had been dating. 

Last week South Yorkshire Police launched a manhunt for Wells more than 20 years after women came forward accusing him of tricking them out of their savings.

Police said: ‘The 61-year-old, who is originally from South Yorkshire, is wanted in connection with three high value romance frauds, during which three victims lost money totalling more than £400,000.

‘The offences are reported to have taken place from September 2014 onwards. The victims lived in locations across the UK including Doncaster, Sussex and London.’

Aubameyang goal given by VAR after one of THE worst offside decisions ever as Arsenal draw level with Man Utd – The Sun

PIERRE-EMERICK AUBAMEYANG equalised for Arsenal after one of THE worst offside decisions was overturned.

Man Utd lost the ball on the edge of the box with it falling to youngster Bukayo Saka.

The 18-year-old played a perfect pass straight into the path of the Gunners hitman, for him to race through on goal and chip over David De Gea and make it 1-1.

Harry Maguire, stood directly in front of the assistant referee, had played Auba well onside – with replays showing Aubameyang around three or four yards to the good.

But to Auba's surprise, the linesman instantly raised his flag.

Maguire had leapt forward and Aubameyang's pace had put him quickly on goal.

But that is no excuse for just how bad the decision actually was.

Despite a mountain of criticism this season – especially regarding marginal offside decisions – the Video Assistant Referee checked this goal.

It didn't take long for VAR to overturn the error and draw Arsenal level.

Arsenal and Chelsea legend Cesc Fabregas was one man to weigh in on the decision, questioning how the lino got that decision so wrong.

The World Cup winner wrote on Twitter: "How can he see an offside right in front of his eyes without anyone in front of him."

Former Liverpool and England striker Michael Owen added: "That's why we have VAR. Imagine if that had been given offside.

Murder of Larry Fenton by his wife, Rebecca Fenton, detailed on American Monster

The murder of Larry Fenton by his wife, Rebecca Ayn Fenton, is detailed in the latest episode of American Monster on Investigation Discovery.

On February 3, 2008, Larry was at his home in Clearwater, Florida, watching Tiger Woods on television when he told his wife, Rebecca, that he was going to take a nap before ordering pizza and watching the Super Bowl at six o’clock.

While he slept, Rebecca said she went to the gym. When she returned two hours later, she found Larry dead in the foyer, and the house had been ransacked.

An autopsy revealed that Larryad been shot at close range in the back, arm, and neck.

Investigators said it initially appeared that Larry was killed in a home-invasion robbery, but upon closer examination, detectives ascertained that aside from his vehicle, nothing of value had been stolen—not even the cash that was found in his wallet.

Clearwater Police Detective Michael Hasty said the robbery appeared to be staged. He added that it looked as if someone went inside the couple’s home and began knocking things over to make it appear as if it had been ransacked.

The police were suspicious of Rebecca, who they said was laughing and joking as detectives and forensic experts were scouring the home for evidence.

Two days after the murder, Larry’s jeep was found about a block from the couple’s home. What detectives found inside the vehicle raised suspicions. They found jewelry, an iPod, and a laptop—something they said the bandit wouldn’t have left behind.

Clearwater police later found the murder weapon in Rebecca’s vehicle. The gun had been wrapped in a plastic bag and hidden underneath the passenger seat. There were also five casings in the bag.

However, Rebecca’s fingerprints were not on the gun and she didn’t have any traces of gunshot residue.

Although police had their suspicions, they didn’t have any evidence to arrest Rebecca.

Six years after Larry’s death, she was arrested and charged with first-degree murder after a detective noticed the pool of blood Larry was laying in had been undisturbed. In an interview with police, Rebecca stated that she checked her husband’s pulse twice. If she had done that, the blood would have been disturb.

When detectives analyzed her 911 call, they used advanced technology to determine if she was innocent or guilty. Police said the type of language she used during the call led them to believe that she was guilty of murdering her husband.

Rebecca claimed that she did not kill her husband, and there was no physical evidence that suggested she committed the crime.

In 2015, she was convicted and sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

Perils overcome by Sarah Thomas, who swam Channel four times in a row

Swim-credible! Salt mouth, float bloat, sea ulcers… and even if you finish, you might drop dead: Here are just some of the perils Sarah Thomas had to endure to become the first person to swim the Channel FOUR times without stopping

  • Sarah Thomas became the first to swim the English Channel four times in a row
  • She set her record only a year after completing treatment for breast cancer
  • Here we list some immense physical challenges with which she had to contend

Your tongue swells so thick that it can block your breathing, your flesh cracks into open sores and your torso bloats into grotesque proportions. Even if you reach dry land, there’s still the threat of a sudden deadly collapse called ‘afterdrop’.

Then, of course, there are all the gruelling hours struggling against freezing water while falling victim to vicious jellyfish stings. Just to make things even worse, there is often the need to vomit between strokes.

These are only a few of the physical challenges that constantly threaten to sink ultra-marathon swimmers such as the American Sarah Thomas. 

But yesterday the 37-year-old from Colorado became the first person to swim across the English Channel an astounding four times in a row, non-stop.

Pictured: American swimmer Sarah Thomas, 37, who has become the first person to swim across the English Channel four times in a row 

She set her record only a year after completing treatment for breast cancer, during which the blisters and burns from radiation therapy had made it too painful to swim.

She began her cross-Channel swim in the early hours of Sunday and finished 54 hours later at 6.30am yesterday morning after swimming around 130 miles against strong tides.

When she finally came ashore at Dover, she said: ‘I’m pretty tired right now.’

Her mother Becky Baxter described her daughter as a ‘freak of nature’, although she claimed that Sarah suffered ‘a lot of trouble with stomach ache’ during her mammoth swim.

Here are just some of the other immense physical challenges with which she had to contend.

SALT ASSAULT 

Victory wave: Sarah Thomas is a seasoned swimmer

At the end of her record-breaking feat, Sarah croaked that her worst problem was ‘dealing with the salt water… it really hurts your throat, your mouth and your tongue’.

At its most extreme, this condition, called salt mouth, can strip skin from the tongue and throat, causing inflammation and swelling, robbing swimmers of their ability to swallow.

If they cannot swallow, they cannot take on vital food and water to fuel their exertions. That is why salt mouth is one of the main reasons such attempts in the sea end in failure.

Some ultra-marathoners regularly swill with ‘barrier’ substances such as coconut oil. Others swear by soothingly sweet items such as tinned peaches and jelly babies.

SEA SORES

Even getting small cuts and scrapes can become a big problem because salt water stops scabs forming.

Long-distance swimmers call these chronic wounds ‘sea ulcers’. They can take months to heal. With repeated swimming, they grow into deep fissures and can become infected. Water high in salt such as the Channel’s can cause such wounds when the mineral dries on sun-exposed skin and becomes abrasive.

Ultra-marathoners try to protect themselves with lubricants such as petroleum jelly — though this wears off after only a few hours in the water.

HELL OF A SWELL

Channel swimmers all tend to look remarkably similar under swimming caps when they finally stagger from the sea. That’s because their faces and bodies have become vastly swollen.

The medical term for this is ‘third spacing’. It is caused by bodily fluids migrating into the spaces between skin and the tissues underlying it. Doctors see this most often in burns and haemorrhages. But it also happens when a body is immersed for hours because the water is absorbed through the skin. The longer a person is in water, the more bloated they become. Third-spacing does little to affect performance, though it weighs swimmers down.

The bloating usually shrinks within hours of stopping. The swimmer, though, will go to the loo a lot to rid themselves of all that fluid.

COLD COMFORT

Sarah’s feat of 54 hours in water at temperatures of around 17C is astounding, even in the world of endurance cold-water swimmers.

Channel Swimming Association rules permitted her to wear only a swimsuit. Nevertheless, she casually announced: ‘It wasn’t as cold as I thought it might be but it was still chilly.’

Her ability to survive comes down to years of practice — plus the mammalian diving reflex. This constricts blood vessels in the skin, redirecting blood from the body’s surface, helping to preserve the body’s core temperature in cold water. Muscles may tire more quickly through lack of oxygen but extreme fitness can overcome this.

JELLYFISH JOLT

Just to make things a little more difficult, Sarah was stung in the face by a jellyfish.

Plagues of the creatures have brought numerous marathon swimming attempts to a premature end.

In June last year, Phia Steyn, from South Africa, aborted her attempt to become the first woman to swim from the Outer Hebrides to the Scottish mainland after falling foul of thousands of jellyfish.

She began her cross-Channel swim in the early hours of Sunday

DEADLY DROP

The dramatic reduction in bloodflow to the surface of the body may protect against hypothermia while in the water. But this survival mechanism can cause a potentially lethal backlash once the swimmer is standing up again in comparatively warm air.

According to a 2014 report in the British Medical Journal, in this state the swimmer’s warm blood quickly returns to their extremities, turning their skin lobster pink. The danger is that this rush of blood from the organs can cause a plummet in core temperature.

Competitors call this sudden-onset of internal hypothermia ‘the afterdrop’. They warn that it is to blame for numerous deaths among open-water swimmers.

CARDIO SHOCK

Extreme endurance athletes have up to six times the normal risk of developing a heart disorder called atrial fibrillation.

During atrial fibrillation, the heart’s pumping becomes irregular and less efficient, which can lead to blood clots that can cause strokes.

The problem is caused when endurance swimming keeps the heart beating at a high rate for hours, which can cause the atria — the upper chambers of the heart — to stretch.

Long-distance swimming may pose an additional risk because the athlete is lying flat instead of standing up, which puts more pressure on the heart.

DIGESTIVE DIPS

Long-distance swimming demands massive amounts of energy. Sarah took food every half hour, relying on carbohydrate and protein drinks, plus electrolytes such as calcium.

Unusually, she also topped up with warm risotto, prepared on board her support boat.

Sickness is a regular and unglamorous problem — a result of mixing food with salt water, and then trying to digest it all as you exercise while horizontal.

Veteran distance-swimmers advise learning to be sick between strokes.

Sarah seems none the worse for her tummy troubles. She celebrated her return to land gingerly with champagne and chocolates.

Kourtney Kardashian feels pressure by Kylie Jenner

Kourtney Kardashian admits she feels pressured by Kylie Jenner’s billionaire status: ‘Probably subconsciously it makes us feel like when is it enough?’

Kourtney Jenner is feeling the heat.

When stopping by season six of The Real in LA on Monday, the 40-year-old TV star revealed there is plenty of sibling rivalry in her family.

The mother-of-three admitted that the most pressure comes from her 22-year-old half-sister Kylie Jenner who has already becoming a billionaire thanks to her Lip Kits.

It’s hard being not a billionaire: Kourtney Jenner is feeling the heat. When stopping by season six of The Real in LA on Monday, the 40-year-old TV star revealed there is plenty of sibling rivalry in her family

But Kylie has MORE: The mother-of-three admitted that the most pressure comes from her 22-year-old half-sister Kylie Jenner who has already becoming a billionaire thanks to her Lip Kits

‘Probably subconsciously it makes us feel like when is it enough?’ Kardashian said. ‘And I think that’s a thing I always think to myself, you know, “When is it enough?” Because I don’t like missing out on certain things, like doing my kids’ homework or certain after-school activities.’

She already stars on KUWTK, updates her social media, poses for clothing companies and runs POOSH.

Kourt was also asked if she could have guesses they would all become so successful.  

Not sexy on this day: She played it safe in a black suit with tank top and little jewelry

For her other sis: Jenner modeled SKIMS to help sibling Kim Kardashian; she is worth over $1B

‘We didn’t even think about it. We just kind of hit the ground running. We just, you know, did it and it happened so quickly,’ said the star.

Kylie told Ellen DeGeneres that she feels the family at times makes fun of her for her money.

‘It’s only when we’re in a group chat talking about [how] we should go on a trip,’ she explained. ‘And then everyone’s like, “Kylie? Question mark? Are you gonna pay for it?’ Just stuff like that.”‘

She poses a ton: Kourtney is very busy with her projects, but she does not make as much as Kylie; seen on KUWTK on Sunday

This comes after a tough episode of KUWTK aired on Sunday.

Kim tried on her blue latex dress by Thierry Mugler and a metallic wig for the inaugural ball’s after-party. 

The reality star, 38, poured her hourglass curves into the figure-hugging dress and FaceTimed Kourtney to show off her look, but was left feeling ’embarrassed’ when her older sister joked she looked like ‘Nicki Minaj on Halloween’.  

Daring: On Sunday’s Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kim tried on her blue latex dress by Thierry Mugler and a metallic wig for the inaugural ball’s after-party

Kim flashed plenty of cleavage and her tiny waist in the skintight minidress, which featured a printed central panel and tinsel detailing.  

Pleased with the look, Kim FaceTimed Kourtney to show her the outlandish Thierry Mugler outfit she was preparing for that spring’s Met Gala in New York City. 

‘I was thinking about wearing this to your 40th birthday party,’ Kim teased Kourtney. ‘What? Is it too dressy?’ 

Upping the style ante: The reality star, 38, poured her hourglass curves into the figure-hugging dress and FaceTimed Kourtney to show off her look

Not a fan: Kim was left feeling ’embarrassed’ when her older sister joked she looked like ‘Nicki Minaj on Halloween’

‘Are you coming as Nicki Minaj?’ Kourtney asked. ‘This is Cher, honey,’ Kim answered, stroking white beads in her hair.

‘I would say it’s October 31st,’ Kourtney affirmed, leaving Kim somewhat dejected.

In private, Kim grew angry: ‘I’ve been planning my Met look since last year, and she was so rude in front of the whole Mugler team… it’s all super-embarrassing.’

The Mugler manager told Kim that Kourtney’s stylist had been trying to get their dresses, too.

‘For her to not only try to use the same designer but then to be so rude, it really hit me the wrong way,’ Kim declared. 

Busty display: Kim flashed plenty of cleavage and her tiny waist in the skintight minidress, which featured a printed central panel and tinsel detailing

Oh dear: ‘Are you coming as Nicki Minaj?’ Kourtney asked. ‘This is Cher, honey,’ Kim answered, stroking white beads in her hair

Upset: ‘I would say it’s October 31st,’ Kourtney affirmed, leaving Kim somewhat dejected

Bizarrely, the stylist had also scooped up a bunch of Rick Owens tops that had been fashioned after a look Kim wore to the CFDA Awards in June.

‘She keeps copying me!’ Kim cried to her stylist, Danielle.

Kourtney, trying on another outfit at her house for her 40th birthday party with Khloé, hit back over the phone.

Halloween costume: Kourtney mocked Kim and said she looked ready for Halloween

‘I don’t know what you’re talking about,’ she told Kim. ‘I’ve never dressed like you.’

Kim was frustrated, saying: ‘I don’t think Kourtney really understands the legwork that goes behind this.’

She said she sometimes spent months working with designers on outfits.

After much of the episode quarreling to and forth, Kourtney eventually apologised to Kim and said she’d had no idea that Kim’s blue dress had been for the Met, or that Mugler’s team had been there when she FaceTimed her. 

Keeping Up With The Kardashians will return next week on the E! network. 

Not into Kourt these days: Kim does not seem to vibe with the 40-year-old

Bermuda judge is slammed by British Appeal Court

Bermuda judge is slammed by British Appeal Court after telling a murder trial he was starting to get ‘horny’ because of the amount of sex mentioned during the case

  • Calisle Greaves served as a junior judge in the British overseas territory Bermuda
  • During a murder trial he said he was starting to get ‘horny’ over mentions of sex 
  • Defense for the accused, who was later convicted of murder, called for a retrial
  • Lawyer Jerome Lynch said Greaves had behaved inappropriately during the trial
  • The British Court of Appeal ultimately rejected the calls but Appeal Judge Sir Maurice Kay said the court could not condone Greaves’ outrageous comments 

A judge in Bermuda has been criticised by the British Court of Appeals for telling a murder trial he was getting ‘horny’ because of the amount of sex mentioned in the case.

Carlisle Greaves, who served until last month as a junior judge in the British overseas territory, made the outrageous remark while a witness gave crucial evidence during the trial.

The murder trial, which saw Khyri Smith-Williams convicted of slaying Colford Ferguson, was taken to the Court of Appeal when defense attorney Jerome Lynch demanded a retrial, claiming the judge had behaved inappropriately.

Calisle Greaves, who served until last month as a junior judge in the British overseas territory, made the outrageous remark while a witness gave crucial evidence during the hearing

The Court of Appeal ultimately rejected the calls but Appeal judge Sir Maurice Kay said the court could not condone the lewd comments. 

Mr Justice Kay said: ‘In particular, his comment “all this sex is beginning to get me horny” was inappropriate and inimical to the dignity of court proceedings. 

‘Mr Lynch was justified in criticising it. However, I do not believe that it damaged the defence or had the potential to undermine the safety of the conviction.’   

Smith-Williams was sentenced to serve at least 35 years in prison last October, after he was found guilty of the murder by a majority verdict. 

Mr Ferguson, a 29-year-old father of one, was shot dead in February 2011, as he worked on a house in Somerset, Bermuda – which is a cluster of 181 islands in the North Atlantic usually referred to in the collective.

Troy Harris, a witness for the Crown, told the court that Smith-Williams confessed his involvement in the killing to him and admitted that he had driven the getaway motorbike.

He said Smith-Williams also told him that Rasheed Muhammad had pulled the trigger and that Mr. Ferguson was not the intended target.

Smith-Williams launched an appeal against his conviction, which was heard in June.

In the hearing, Mr Lynch criticised Mr Justice Greaves’s handling of the case, particularly his behaviour during Mr Harris’s evidence.

He argued that the judge had done little to rein in the witness’s use of vulgar language and that the ‘tacit approval’ of the behaviour had lent it credibility.

In transcripts presented to the Court of Appeal, Mr Harris cursed repeatedly, called Mr Muhammad a f****t and made repeated references to ‘f***ing p***y’.

But the higher court found Mr Justice Greaves’s response to the unsavoury language was not prejudicial.

Mr Justice Kay wrote: ‘Anybody familiar with serious criminal trials, in this jurisdiction in recent years, knows the judge has a very personal style, whereby he engages with witnesses, defendants, juries and advocates in an informal way, often using casual language and rich metaphors.

‘In relation to Harris, it was important that the judge should facilitate his evidence, whatever it turned out to be.

‘If he took the view, and I suspect he did, that the best course was to let the witness have his say, subject to the rules of evidence, rather than seek to inhibit him, it seems to me that that was an exercise of judgment which was open to him.’

Mums swear by the lightweight gadget that helps their kids sleep on flights by turning plane seats into beds – The Sun

MUMS have praised a $80 (£65) gadget which helps their kids to sleep on a plane during a flight by converting the seats into a miniature bed.

Called Plane Pal, the inflatable pillow neatly folds away to make it easy to travel with.

Australian mum Jaimie Anastas took one with her on a Qantas flight to Sydney to Doha when travelling with her baby, Mila.

Shared on Facebook, the caption explained: "What do you get when you add Plane Pal (Hiding under the pillow) and a $5 Kmart pets bed to you carry on? You get a very happy baby!!!! Total parent win here!!!"

The Plane Pal cushion comes with a small pump and carry bag, and weighs around 1kg.

When it needs to be used, it is then unrolled and inflated.

The Points Guy's Kathleen Porter Kristiansen also tried it for herself when travelling with her four-year-old son.

She praised the pillow for not taking up much space, explaining: "I can inflate [it] without anyone noticing and quickly hide the inflated cushion under a blanket with my kids’ legs on it."

The Plane Pal was invented by Samantha Cardone, a mum of three, who would regularly travel with her children while in Australia,

She explained: " I have been that mother desperately rocking a screaming child whilst pacing the aisle. I have also been the mother pinned under twin sleeping toddlers for 6 hours straight, with dead legs and a desperate need to visit the bathroom.

"I wanted to create a product that would help families reduce the stress associated with travel."

Passengers are advised to check before travelling to see if the airline they are flying on allows them to be used.

Airlines which allow Plane Pal

  • Aegean Airlines
  • Aer Lingus
  • Air Asia
  • Air Asia Japan
  • Air Europa
  • Air India
  • Air Japan
  • Air Vanuatu
  • Alaska Airlines
  • All Nippon Airways (ANA)
  • Alliance Airlines
  • American Airlines
  • Cathay Dragon
  • Cathay Pacific
  • Cebu Pacific
  • China Airlines
  • China Eastern
  • China Southern
  • Delta Air Lines
  • Easy Jet
  • Eva Air
  • Etihad Airways
  • Fin Air
  • FlyBe
  • Garuda Indonesia
  • Hong Kong Airlines
  • Iberia Airlines
  • Iceland Air
  • Japan Airlines

  • Scoot
  • Silk Air
  • Singapore Airlines
  • Southwest
  • Swiss Air
  • Thompson Air
  • Vanilla Air
  • Vietnam Airlines
  • Virgin America
  • Virgin Australia
  • WestJet

They can also only be used during the flight – not during take off or landing – and can't be used in aisle seats.

Amazon currently have cheaper alternatives available, such as a £12.99 inflatable foot rest pillow, or a £22 blow up cushion with fun child prints and patterns.

Another device which lets you turn your economy seats into a bed has rave reviews from parents.

Called the Skycouch, families can pay to upgrade their seats on Air New Zealand to turn them into a three-seat bed.

Some airlines ban sleeping devices, with British Airways explaining: "Devices not allowed include, but are not restricted to, seat extenders for children, hammocks for lap held infants, inflatable footrests and devices that attach to the seat to restrict movement or for leg support (bed boxes)."

Qantas also have similar rules banning items which go between seats.

Other airlines have launched their own sleeping devices, with Thomas Cook's sleeping seats in economy costing just £200.

Gorillas play by splashing and sweeping their arms through a stream

Wild gorillas play in water just like humans do, scientists say after watching the apes splashing and sweeping their arms through a stream

  • Researchers spotted the behaviour amongst wild mountain gorillas in Uganda
  • They had been studying how ecotourism impacts the primates in a national park
  • When splashing about the apes put on a play face and stick their tongues out 
  • Play may help the gorillas have fun, exercise and learn about their surroundings

Wild mountain gorillas have been spotted playing in water — splashing in a stream and sweeping their arms through the liquid — just like humans do.

Recordings of the play activity were taken in a national park in Uganda by researchers who were studying the impact of ecotourism on gorillas.

The experts think that the gorillas splash around to get exercise, learn about their environment and also to just have fun.

When splashing, the apes assume what the researchers call a ‘play face’ and stick their tongues out.

WHY DO GORILLAS PLAY IN WATER? 

Wild mountain gorillas have been spotted playing in water just like humans do.

Researchers observed them splashing in a stream and sweeping their arms through the water.

Water play enables the gorillas to exercise, develop muscles and learn about their environment.

Experts think the activity may also be fun for the apes.

Western lowland gorillas are also known to splash around water.

Some researchers believe that this represents a show of power. 

A video from Dallas Zoo, taken in 2017, also showed Zola, a male western lowland gorilla ‘dancing’ in a pool.

He span around and splashed the water with his arms.

The play behaviour was captured by primatologist Raquel Costa of Kyoto University, in Japan, who spotted the behaviour by chance while studying the impact of ecotourism on wild mountain gorillas in Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable National Park.

She first saw one playing in water on January 12, 2018, when she observed a 15-year-old male gorilla named Kanywani gently moving his arm back and forth in a stream.

Unfortunately, Ms Costa did not have a camera to capture the behaviour, which only lasted for around 37 seconds in total, with Kanywani taking a break to drink.

Two weeks later, however, Ms Costa was able to record the play, when a nine-year-old female named Kamara was spotted having fun while the troop was by the stream.

‘Kamara moved and then suddenly she crouched down to the water surface and started splashing the water making vigorous rotating and sweeping movements with her arms diagonally across the water surface,’ Ms Costa wrote in her paper.

Kamara did this 21 times in a 17-minute period and was even joined by another female, Kanyindo, for a time.

‘While splashing the water with her arms, Kamara displayed a play face with her mouth barely open and tongue out,’ Ms Costa. 

By the end of the play, ‘the splashing made her hair completely wet, so vigorous were the movements and water turbulence created by her actions.’

A third instance of playing in the stream was observed around a week later, when Ms Costa spotted a seven-year-old male called Kabunga rotating his arms across the water’s surface for around five seconds.

The study provides one of the few examinations of solitary play behaviour in animals — with most previous investigations having focused on social, or group, play activities that help animals to hone their social skills.

Nevertheless, solitary play behaviour can be just as important, allowing animals to learn physical skills and explore their surroundings, Costa told the New Scientist.

Recordings of the play activity, pictured, were taken in a national park in Uganda by researchers who were studying the impact of ecotourism on gorillas

Playing around in their stream, Kanywani and his peers are ‘developing muscles and skills,’ she added.

The findings overturn reports of a 2016 review that had found no evidence of mountain gorillas engaging in water play — either in the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park or in another population in the Virunga National Park in the DR Congo.

According to Ms Costa, colleagues studying the Virunga population have also observed gorillas playing in water.

In addition, western lowland gorillas are also known to splash around water — and act that some researchers believe represents a show of power.

A video from Dallas Zoo, taken in 2017, also showed an adult male western lowland gorilla known as Zola seeming to ‘dance’ in a paddling pool, spinning around and splashing the water with his arms.

Alongside being a learning experience, play may also offer ‘the pure pleasure of doing something fun,’ Ms Costa told the New Scientist.

‘I do feel that animals with a certain cognitive capacity will do something just because they enjoy it,’ she added.

The full findings of the study were published in the journal Primates.

Demi Lovato drives fans wild by flirting online with Mike Johnson

Demi Lovato drives fans wild as she has flirty exchange with Bachelorette alum Mike Johnson after posting sizzling bikini snap

The singer has been open about the fact that Mike Johnson was her favorite contestant on Hannah Brown’s Bachelorette season

Now, a flirty exchange between Demi and Mike has sent their fans into overdrive.

On Thursday, Demi, 27, shared an unedited photo of herself in a leopard-print bikini alongside an empowering caption about appreciating one’s body, imperfections and all.

He’s not intimidated: Bachelorette fan-favorite Mike Johnson, 31,  obviously appreciated Demi Lovato’s fuller figure in her Instagram post, replying,  ‘Look at me like that again. Love yaself’

Beautiful and brave: Demi shared this stunning and unedited bikini photo on Instagram on Thursday evening from her holiday to Bora Bora in May as she wrote about being ‘authentic’

Thousands of supportive comments flooded in — including one from Bachelorette fan-favorite Mike, 31.

‘Look at me like that again,’ he wrote. ‘Love yaself.’

In response, Demi sent a kissy emoji and one with its tongue sticking out, prompting hundreds of fans to chime in with comments begging the two to get together.

The excitement comes as the songstress faced her ‘biggest fear’ by posting the stunning, untouched shot as she soaked up the sun in a leopard print bikini by luxury swimwear brand PilyQ. 

Flirtatious fun: Demi replied to Mike’s saucy Instagram  comment with a kissy emoji and one with its tongue sticking out, prompting hundreds of fans to chime in with comments begging the two to get together

Sun kissed: This is the (just as beautiful) image which Demi shared back in May on  Instagram, which appears to have been edited 

‘I hope to inspire’: Demi shared this post about learning to love the ‘raw and real’ version of herself  

It was taken on her trip to Bora Bora Four Seasons in May, four months after Demi shared an edited (and just as beautiful) picture of herself on the same trip. 

‘This is my biggest fear. A photo of me in a bikini unedited,’ she wrote in a lengthy caption to her 73 million followers. ‘And guess what, it’s CELLULIT!!!!

‘I’m just literally sooooo tired of being ashamed of my body, editing it (yes the other bikini pics were edited – and I hate that I did that but it’s the truth) so that others think I’m THEIR idea of what beautiful is, but it’s just not me.

Demi looked over her shoulder in the photo, flaunting her hourglass curves as she stepped out of a pool while on a tropical holiday at the Four Seasons. 

‘This is what I got. I want this new chapter in my life to be about being authentic to who I am rather than trying to meet someone else’s standards,’ she wrote.

‘So here’s me, unashamed, unafraid and proud to own a body that has fought through so much and will continue to amaze me when I hopefully give birth one day. 

‘It’s such a great feeling to be back in tv/film while not stressing myself with a strenuous workout schedule before 14 hour days, or depriving myself from a real birthday cake rather than opting for watermelon & whip cream with candles because I was terrified of REAL cake and was miserable on some crazy diet s**t. 

Word’s out: Demi later took to social media to thank everyone for their support and said she was ‘still shaking’ after having posted her picture 

‘Anyway, here’s me, RAW, REAL! And I love me. And you should love you too! Now back to the studio.. I’m working on an anthem.. also. 

‘Just so everyone’s clear.. I’m not stoked on my appearance BUT I am appreciative of it and sometimes that’s the best I can do. I hope to inspire someone to appreciate their body today too.’ 

Celebrities turned out in droves to support Demi’s post, with Ashley Graham, Jenna Dewan, Jamie Lee Curtis and Ashley Greene all encouraging Demi to stay true to her beautiful self. 

So bold: Demi flaunted her hourglass curves as she stepped out of a pool while on a tropical holiday at the Four Seasons

Supportive: A host of stars took to the comments section to applaud Demi for her latest post 

Scooter Braun wrote: ‘YOU did this. YOU. You are amazing. YOU are smart… you are beautiful… you are wonderful… you are brave… and you are kind. And I’m proud of YOU.

Hell Im proud to know YOU! Bravo for loving YOU first and in turn inspiring millions.’ [sic]. 

Lindsey Vonn wrote: ‘Yes!!! Don’t be ashamed. Be proud.’

Sara Sampaio wrote: ‘You are beautiful the way you are. So proud of you.’ 

She’s previously battled an eating disorder and regularly discusses issues with body dysmorphia, depression and self-harm.

Demi uses her platform to educate fans and followers about mental health and wellness, and is a longtime advocate for gay rights.

In 2015, she released a song called Confident as she battled with her own journey of self-acceptance. 

She said at the time: ‘I have never been confident enough in my own skin to feel sexy. Now that I’m feeling great and I feel confident, I’m proud of the skin that I’m in.

‘I’m wanting to share that with the world and showing everyone how you can go from being very insecure with body image issues to feeling so proud of your body that you want to show it to the world.’ 

Cool for the Summer: Demi shared a series in the swimsuit earlier this year after a whirlwind vacation with friends in French Polynesia

Apple takes on Spotify by putting music streaming service on the internet

Apple launched its Apple Music service on the internet on Thursday (US time), opening up access to users to who prefer a browser instead of an app.

It looks similar to the Apple Music app coming to Mac computers later this year.Credit:Bloomberg

The company said the web version is an early beta test. It looks similar to the Apple Music app coming to Mac computers later this year. Beats Music, which Apple bought in 2014, had a web version, but Apple discontinued that upon launching Apple Music in 2015.

The company hasn't built web versions of other major new services like Apple News+ and Apple TV+. But iCloud and iWork products are offered via the web. Apple Music competes with Spotify Technology.

Katie Price ‘DUMPS fiancé Kris Boyson by text

Katie Price ‘DUMPS fiancé Kris Boyson by text after cheating on him with builder Charles Drury’… as it’s claimed she split her boob job stitches open in bed with new lover’

Katie Price has reportedly dumped her fiancé Kris Boyson by text after she was accused of cheating on him with a builder who she secretly flew out to Turkey.

The former glamour model, 41, has allegedly dumped Kris for Charles Dury, who she struck up a romance with after following each other on Instagram.

This comes as it is claimed Katie has ripped the stitches from her recent boob job while in bed with her new lover, following a wild night of partying. 

Ouch: Katie Price has reportedly dumped her fiancé Kris Boyson by text after she was accused of cheating on him with a builder amid claims she’s ripped her boob job stitches while in bed with her new lover (pictured earlier this month)

Katie and Kris announced their engagement just weeks ago but are now believed to have called it quits following Katie’s dramatic U-turn, according to the Mirror.

After the cheating claims came to light, Kris was pictured chucking all of Katie’s belongings out of his house, including clothes and children’s toys on Friday. 

During her time in Turkey, Katie has reportedly damaged her recent surgery after a boozy night out split her boob job stitches open.

A source told the Sun: ‘Katie woke up in so much pain after her big night out and thinks she’s pulled one or two stitches out of the scar from her recent boob reduction surgery,’ says the friend.

‘She doesn’t know if she did it in the club or in bed with Charles at night because she was so drunk.

‘She’s worried that it’s going to stop the healing process, but she’s due to visit her surgeon for a check up so hopefully it won’t scar.’

MailOnline have contacted Katie’s representative for further comment.
