Email The Grand Tour host Jeremy Clarkson was among the celebrities to send words of encouragement to A-level students as they opened their results. Clarkson typically posts a message on Twitter every year to students who haven’t achieved the grades they were hoping for. This year the former Top Gear presenter wrote:

Clarkson has in previous years posted similarly worded messages of comfort, claiming he is being made truffles for breakfast and that he is on a yacht in the Mediterranean.


Among the class of 2018 was Love Island contestant Dr Alex George, who wrote:

Another TV doctor, This Morning star and Strictly Come Dancing contestant Ranj Singh, wrote:


Peep Show star David Mitchell posted a link to a comic video of himself dressed at playwright William Shakespeare. In the video Mitchell jokingly apologised to students for Shakespeare’s plays being boring.

 

Amal Clooney and George Clooney: Are the couple attending Princess Eugenie’s wedding?

Amal Clooney and George Clooney: Are the couple attending Princess Eugenie’s wedding?

The A-list couple previously turned heads at the wedding of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry in May and now, their link to Princess Eugenie’s husband-to-be has been revealed. George, 57, is connected to Jack, 32, through business, as the hospitality mogul was previously announced as the UK Ambassador for his Casamigos Tequila brand in 2016. At the time, Jack said he was “thrilled” to be joining the team after moving over from his previous role at Tonteria, a Mexican-themed club in Chelsea, London. Amal, 40, and her Hollywood actor husband could be in for another trip to Windsor in October if they get an invite to the upcoming nuptials. Princess Eugenie, 28, and Jack, who announced their engagement earlier this year, first met whilst skiing in Switzerland.

Her father Prince Andrew congratulated the couple, saying: “Jack is an absolutely outstanding young man and Eugenie and he have got to know each other over a number of years, and I’m really thrilled for them. “I’m just completely overjoyed for them and wish them every happiness.” George and Amal put on a stunningly elegant display at Prince Harry and Meghan’s wedding, looking the picture perfect couple in their stylish outfits. The human rights lawyer showcased her famous fashion sense in a bold yellow frock which featured a statement tie in the back and cap sleeves. The chic number highlighted her slender frame and she paired it with a matching yellow hat with a delicate veil. Meanwhile, George looked dashing in a light grey suit, pale blue shirt and a yellow and white striped tie. The pair arrived arm-in-arm as they made their way past photographers and crowds into St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle to watch the Duchess of Sussex tie the knot with Prince Harry.

George recently miraculously escaped without any broken bones after being involved in a collision with a car whilst riding his moped in Italy. The Ocean’s Eleven star could be seen crashing into the front of the vehicle in footage of the crash, flying off the front of his scooter and onto the road. His helmet smashed the windscreen upon impact and he was subsequently taken to hospital before later being discharged.

The driver of the other vehicle told Italian newspaper Corriere della Serra afterwards that he was still in shock following the incident. “I couldn’t see anything,” Antonella Viglino said. “I was just started to turn, I’d only gone a little way over the white line. “I’m still in shock. It all happened in an instant.” He said he had recognised the actor as soon as he removed his helmet, adding: “I could never gave imagined that I would have hit George Clooney.”

 

Sam Smith Faces Backlash After Admitting He Doesn’t Like Michael Jackson

Sam Smith Faces Backlash After Admitting He Doesn’t Like Michael Jackson

Sam Smith is facing backlash after admitting that he isn’t the biggest fan of Michael Jackson. The 26-year-old was captured on video saying: “I don’t like Michael Jackson but this is a good song” while listening to one of the icon’s tracks during a recent boat trip with Adam Lambert.

It took approximately zero seconds for Twitter to kick off over this admission, with some fans arguing that he should issue a public apology for slighting the music legend, while others pointed out that he’s fully entitled to his opinion. “Here is the thing if you say ‘I don’t like Michael Jackson’s music’ I can tolerate it, but if you say ‘You don’t like MJ’ its personal! Did you ever even meet him?” one person stated.

Another said: “Yes Sam Smith can have his opinion, of course. But you can’t just say ‘I don’t like Michael Jackson’, you have to say ‘I’m very sorry but Michael Jackson’s songs aren’t my fave.’ That’s it.” While a bunch of people were outraged that Sam isn’t the world’s biggest ‘Billie Jean’ fan, one person out there defended his right to be wrong: “Sam Smith saying he doesn’t like Michael Jackson doesn’t mean s**t! god I can list so many good artists that I don’t like their music and it’s MY opinion.  Y

They added: “He shouldn’t pretend to like everyone’s music because he’s famous.. he wasn’t even hating!”  Where do you stand on this?

Prescription drugs ‘contributed’ to Lady Kathryn Vestey’s death

Prescription drugs ‘contributed’ to Lady Kathryn Vestey’s death

Lady Kathryn Vestey had a cocktail of prescribed drugs in her system which could have contributed to her death, an inquest heard today. The first wife of muilti-millionaire Lord Samuel Vestey had antidepressants, sleeping pills and powerful painkillers in her system when she died in her sleep in Burford in the Cotswold hills. A live-in carer found the 73-year-old dead three days before her birthday on December 13, 2017. Toxicology reports showed the drugs the pensioner had taken a combination of drugs for around more than decade ‘potentially contributed to her death’ the coroner heard. The inquest was told her death was caused by a hardening of her heart valves.  Lady Kathryn (pictured on her wedding day) died at her home in Burford last December. She divorced Lord Samuel Vestey in 1981 after 11 years of marriage The senior coroner for Oxfordshire Darren Salter, said: ‘The cause of death was initially unknown. ‘The key issue was the cause of death, be it natural causes or due to prescribed drugs.’ Medical records showed that Lady Vestey was prescribed opiate painkiller codeine to manage pain in her left hip, which was afflicted with arthritis.  She also took liquid morphine to manage the pain, with the last batch prescribed just before her death. Surgery had been explored as an option to treat the condition, but due to a prior stroke it had not been undertaken.

Lady Vestey was formerly married to Lord Vestey, who served the Queen as Master of the Horse but they split after 11 years in 1981. Lord Vestey was the former Chairman of Cheltenham Racecourse and has regularly been seen with the Queen at equestrian events.  He has an estimated wealth of £750 million thanks to his meat business, the Vestey Food Group. The pair had two children together, the Honourable Saffron Idiens and the Honourable Flora Hall. Following an extensive toxicology report, it was found that Lady Vestey also had antidepressants in her body at the time of her death. Proceedings heard she had battled depression and anxiety during her life. She was last seen by her carer, Linda Huart at around 10.30pm on December 12, before the same carer found her dead.  The analysis of the chemicals in her body showed that Lady Vestey had the painkillers codeine, morphine, sleeping pills zopiclone, and antidepressants venlafaxine and mirtazipine in her system at the time of her death. Dr Nicholas Hunt, who carried out the post mortem examinations, said: ‘There were many findings, including relatively high levels of anti depressants (Venlafaxine and mirtazipine). ‘But these were below the levels usually associated with fatalities. ‘In this case the toxicology report was complex, with a number of agents which could have increased Lady Vestey’s risk of respiratory depression. ‘In my opinion it should be considered as potentially contributing to her death.’ Lady Vestey also suffered from insomnia, for which she was prescribed zopiclone.

A statement from Ms Hall was read to proceedings, explaining that there had been attempts to reduce the medication the life-long house wife had been taking. Lord and Lady Vestey had two children together. Lady Kathryn was found dead in December last year  She said: ‘Five or six weeks before her death, there were issues with her medication. ‘Appointments were made to review them, and consequently there was a reduction of medication. ‘The last time I saw my mother was two weeks before she died. ‘She was in bed but definitely more alert than she had been previously.’ Ms Huart said: ‘I had concerns about the medication. ‘I called the GP surgery and it was apparent she had been on the same medication for about 10 years. ‘She had been prescribed by a mixture of private and NHS doctors.’ Mr Salter recorded a conclusion that Lady Vestey died of natural causes. The medical cause of death was idiopathic myocardial fibrosis, or hardening of the heart valves, and the medication was given as a contributing factor.

Mr Salter said: ‘I offer my condolences to the family in this case. ‘She died of idiopathic myocardial fibrosis, but the drugs potentially could have contributed to her death. ‘The dosages of some of the drugs were high, but this could have been due to chronic therapeutic use. ‘There is no suggestion of overdose.’

 

Lisa Appleton forced to move into a treehouse after hitting ‘rock bottom’

Lisa Appleton forced to move into a treehouse after hitting ‘rock bottom’

She might be best known for once living in the most famous house in Britain during her time on Big Brother, but now Lisa Appleton is now living in a treehouse after falling on hard times. The former reality star, 50, has revealed that she is paying £5 a night for the basic wooden hut, which has no running water or electricity. Lisa, currently based in Wolverhampton, is working in sales after turning down lucrative work as a webcam girl. “I thought at 50 years old I’d be living it up in my own house with a much better life,” she told. “I am shocked and devastated about my current living circumstances. “I’m sleeping rough with creepy crawlies, and a night owl that hoots all night and keeps me awake.”

Lisa Appleton forced to move into a treehouse after hitting 'rock bottom'

However, Lisa has revealed that she has made an unlikely ally in the wild after moving into her new digs. She continued: “I’ve met a friendly fox. I feed him my scraps and give him a cheeky sausage. He cheers me up – I’ve called him Tinker!’ Lisa says that she is provided with some comfort from knowing that her late dad is keeping her safe. She said: “I look up at the stars and I know my dad is watching over me.” Since revealing she had moved into her rustic new gaff, Lisa has faced criticism from Twitter followers who believe she is telling porkies about her current situation. “The general public reaction has been: ‘It’s not true, it’s a set up!’ And other stupid comments, however I find quite a few of them hilarious. “One even said they hope the treehouse doesn’t collapse, because I weigh a tonne! Lisa is known for her wild paparazzi shots.

“If people criticise me for sleeping rough… At the end of the day, I’m not signing on, I’m rebuilding my life.” Lisa remains hopeful about the future, despite finding herself homeless. She said: “I pray things improve fast. “Years ago I cracked up when I was homeless, but this time I’m much stronger – my past struggles have made me stronger. “As hard as it is, I’m doing my best to be energetic and keep my sense of humour. “I know from my past that once you fall into a depression it’s harder to snap out of it, so I’m choosing to laugh my way through it.” Lisa previously revealed that she had found herself without a place to live as she couldn’t afford to rent a room. “I am staying in the tree house because I can’t afford enough money for a deposit on a shared room in a house yet,” she told The Sun Online. “It’s £5 a night and the farmer who owns the field is lovely and said I can stay for as long as I like. “It’s basic but it’s a roof over my head. I’m trying to make it feel more homely by putting out pictures and nice things. I know it won’t be forever.” The star – known for her wacky photoshoots – revealed she had turned down stacks of cash to perform as a webcam girl.

She said: “I know I’d make thousands but I can’t bring myself to do it as it’s not my niche and do not want to be known that. “I’m worth more; my dream job would be to host my own TV show, also I love to inspire people to be fit and healthy.” Despite falling on hard times, Lisa explained that she refuses to let her circumstances get her down. She said: “I’m not ashamed to admit that the past 18 months have been emotionally hard for me as I have lost my dad, my daughter and my dog emigrated to Canada. Lisa loves posing for the paps.

“But I’m only 10 minutes away from work and I’m saving every penny I earn to get back into a house before winter sets in. “I’m doing my best to start again from rock bottom and make it happen. I’m much stronger now than few years ago.”

 

Sacha Baron Cohen’s ‘Who Is America’ pranks failed to trick some

Sacha Baron Cohen’s ‘Who Is America’ pranks failed to trick some

This combination photo shows Sacha Baron Cohen at the 64th Annual Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills, Calif., on Jan. 15, 2007, left, and Cohen portraying retired Israeli Colonel Erran Morad in a still from the Showtime series, “Who Is America?”

Sacha Baron Cohen’s satirical seven-episode Showtime series “Who Is America?” has made headlines for tricking celebrities and politicians including Ted Koppel, Roy Moore, Joe Arpaio and more.  But not everyone Cohen has tried to dupe fell for the liberal comedian’s antics. In fact, many of his marks easily saw through the now-decades-old act, and avoided becoming Cohen’s punchline. Corey Lewandowski Former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski was able to avoid becoming a mockery when invited onto Cohen’s Showtime series.

SACHA BARON COHEN’S CONTROVERSIES: FROM ‘BORAT’ LAWSUITS TO BOX OFFICE FLOPS Lewandowski kept to his talking points as Cohen continuously prodded him with ridiculous questions, such as asking him about the far-right conspiracy theory that PBS is owned by the “Rastafarian lobby.” “I wouldn’t know anything about that,” a cool Lewandowski said. Cohen posed as “Billy Wayne Ruddick Jr,” a right-wing conspiracy theorist and “citizen journalist.” He also asked the former Trump staffer to speak on a variety of sensitive topics such as his stance on neo-Nazis and if Trump is racist. “I had the privilege of standing and sitting next to candidate Trump — and now the president— for thousands of hours over my tenure running his campaign. Never, ever, ever did I ever hear him utter a racist word in his life. Ever,” Lewandowski said. Matt Gaetz Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) also didn’t fall for the comedian’s tricks when he was interviewed by Cohen, in character, as an Israeli anti-terror expert named Col. Erran Morad. Cohen as Morad was trying to convince Gaetz to endorse a fictional program called “Kinderguardians,” which would arm America’s children to help prevent school shootings. “You want me to say on television that I support 3 and 4-year-olds with firearms?” Gaetz asked Cohen. “Is that what you’re asking me to do?” Cohen replied, “Yes.”

SACHA BARON COHEN’S ‘WHO IS AMERICA?’ ON SHOWTIME PULLS IN JUST 327,000 VIEWERS (source – hollywoodreporter) “Typically, members of Congress don’t just hear a story about a program and indicate whether they support it or not,” Gaetz said. Gaetz spoke to “Fox & Friends” about being on the show and said he was sceptical because his mother taught him to be that way. “Good makeup artistry, good acting by Sacha Baron Cohen,” Gaetz said. “They catch members of Congress at the end of the day, a little frustrated, a little tired. And I think they got some of my colleagues to say things they likely regret.” California gun store owner In February 2017, Warrior One Guns & Ammo agreed to participate in a documentary about a Hungarian immigrant wanting to buy a gun in the United States. But when the store’s owner, Norris Sweidan, saw the film’s subject, he quickly realized he was getting duped. When Cohen, in full disguise, asked to buy a gun, Sweidan says he immediately recognized the voice and called the celebrity prankster out. “I’m looking at the producer and I’m just like, ‘Am I being fooled right here?’” the owner told FOX 11 in July. “And I just kept looking at the guy and I was like, you’re Borat,’” he said, recognizing Cohen from his 2006 film.

SACHA BARON COHEN SLAMMED BY STREET ARTIST SABO FOR STUNT IN ‘WHO IS AMERICA?’ The whole event was caught on the California store’s surveillance camera. Sweidan said that as soon as the actor realized he was identified, he immediately turned and exited the store, leaving his camera crew behind. When Sweidan turned to the producers for answers that they weren’t able to give him, Sweidan said he’d finally had enough and threw them all out of his store. “Once I knew it was Borat, we already know his game and his bulls—. So, we knew he’s here to make a mockery, and of what? Gun owners? The gun business? Gun shops?” Lee Zeldin The office of Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) was told the congressman was chosen as one of 70 people being honored to mark Israel’s 70th anniversary by an Israeli TV station called Yerushalayim Television that wanted to interview Zeldin about the honor. Rep. Lee Zeldin’s office turned down an interview request by Sacha Baron Cohen before knowing the request was from the comedian. However, when Zeldin’s communications director, Katie Vincentz, looked up the alleged TV station she found it had very little online presence. Once she noticed the producer had an American name, she became suspicious.

SACHA BARON COHEN’S PRANKS COULD LAND HIM IN LEGAL TROUBLE “To be candid, it was a little suspicious that someone who was the producer of Yerushalayim Television in Israel would be ‘Julia Harris’,” Vincentz told the New York Post earlier in August. Vincentz said another red flag was that she could not find anything online about the award Zeldin was said to have been receiving. “There was no mention anywhere of this big award, which was surprising especially in light of the big names they claimed to have interviewed,” Vincentz said. Ultimately, Zeldin turned down the interview request and was saved from Cohen’s pranks.

 

Gail Porter cries as she wears a wig for the first time in 13 years

Gail Porter cries as she wears a wig for the first time in 13 years BelfastTelegraph.co.uk Gail Porter broke down in tears as she unveiled her new wig, the first one she has worn on television since losing her hair to alopecia 13 years ago.

Gail Porter broke down in tears as she unveiled her new wig, the first one she has worn on television since losing her hair to alopecia 13 years ago. Porter, 47, was first diagnosed with alopecia in 2005 and she has refused to wear wigs and hairpieces over the years. She debuted her custom-made blonde wig on ITV’s Loose Women. ‘

Through tears, the Scottish star said: “I said, ‘I’m definitely not going to cry because I’ve got good make-up on!’ It feels really nice but really weird.”

“I keep wanting to do this all the time,” she said, flicking her hair. “I’m quite a tearful person normally, I felt really nervous, I was worried about your reactions and what people think,” she added. Porter said that she “gasped” when she saw the wig for the first time, and that “it reminds me of being young”. Asked if she felt pressure to stay bald to inspire others, she said: “I think I’ll always be bald half the week. I don’t know when I’ll wear this. Maybe go out for dinner or something. “I enjoy feeling bald, I understand what you’re saying, I want people to be aware you have a choice. It’s beginning to feel normal now.

“It’s not just for people with alopecia… [there is] cancer, people lose their hair for all different reasons. If they can go bald, that’s brilliant, I might take this off afterwards and go shopping in Westfield. I might have it in my handbag, have the option.” Porter, who rose to fame in the 1990s as a TV presenter for shows including Top Of The Pops and The Big Breakfast and then as a model in men’s magazines such as FHM, added: “I’m used to being bald. This is fun. “People have got wardrobes, you can put your hair up… I can take mine off. I can put a different colour on.” She said her teenage daughter Honey told her she “looks lovely” with the wig on. Porter first lost her hair in 2005 and several years later, she was delighted when her hair began to grow back, starting with her lashes and brows. She then sported a short, cropped look, but in 2010, she revealed her hair had started to fall out again, and the following year she unveiled her shaved head again. Porter developed the condition in the wake of the messy end of her marriage to musician Dan Hipgrave, which also led to an overdose.

The former model was later diagnosed with bipolar disorder, which is characterised by periods of depression and mania.
