Piers Morgan drops a ‘SEX’ bombshell

Piers Morgan stunned the entire Good Morning Britain studio today with a bizarre ‘SEX’ bombshell. The Good Morning Britain presenter seemed surprised with himself after making the shocking revelation.

Rylan Clark-Neal joked that Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby actually “hate each other”. When asked if they really get on, he said: “Oh no they hate each other. It’s awful up there. They don’t talk to each other. It’s terrible.”

Referring to her relationship with Piers, Susanna Reid asked: “So it’s actually like this but in real life?  Rylan replied: “Yeah but at half 10.”

Seizing his moment, Piers said: “It’s like this – only without the sex.” Even Piers seemed shocked with what he’d said as he covered his mouth with his hand. There was a stunned silence in the studio followed by a few muffled giggles.

Susanna did not look impressed with her co-host, who burst out laughing. Breaking the tension in the air, Rylan said: “Good Morning Britain. Thanks for having me.”

Charlotte Hawkins collapsed to the desk with her head in her hands. Susanna said: “You are a HR claim waiting to happen Piers Morgan.” Piers ignored his co-host and went straight to the competition.

Justin Bieber Slams Fan Who Said He Married Hailey To Get Back At Selena Gomez

Justin Bieber has lashed out at a troll who claimed he only married Hailey Baldwin to get back at ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez.

The rude AF comment read: “You are NOT in love with Hailey! You only married her to get back at SG, plus Hailey sleeps with men like @ShawnMendes for fame and she’s racist.”

In response, Justin replied: “Why would I dedicate my whole life to someone in marriage to get back and my ex, anyone who believes this is mean spirited or 10 years old or younger because a logical person doesn’t talk or think this way. He continued: “I absolutely loved and love Selena she will always hold a place in my heart, but I am head over heals in love with my wife and she is absolutely the BEST THING that has ever happened to me period.  “I will never respond again to a message like this because I don’t like to even give it my energy but this is a reply to all the immature sick people who send Hailey hurtful messages like ‘he always goes back to Selena’ or ‘Selena is better for him’ YOU HAVE NO IDEA MY LIFE AND WHATS good for me!!”

The 25-year-old concluded: “Hailey is my Bride period if you don’t like that or support that that means you don’t support me and if you don’t support me your not a fan nor a good person”  This comes days after Hailey revealed in an interview with Cosmopolitan that she’s been forced to stop reading any of her Instagram comments because the abuse is getting too much for her to handle.

Dumbo remake fails to takeoff with the critics

Eva Green plays French trapeze artist Colette with Dumbo, Tim Burton’s re-imagining of the 1941 Disney animated classic Dumbo has failed to dazzle many film critics ahead of its release.

One critic  gave the film one star, calling it “pointlessly complicated and drawn out”. In his two-star review, Robbie Collin said it “has to be counted as a failure”.

The live-action/CGI film stars Danny DeVito, Colin Farrell, Michael Keaton and Eva Green. Thandie Newton’s daughter Nico Parker makes her film debut as the daughter of Farrell’s former circus star, taking a shine to the big-eared baby elephant.

Burton is known for fantastical films like Edward Scissorhands and Sleepy Hollow, and for re-imagining Batman, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Alice in Wonderland.

Reporter David Rooney declared his new version of Dumbo a “frustratingly uneven picture” that “holds the attention but too seldom tugs at the heartstrings”.

Owen Gleiberman said it “transforms a miraculous tale into a routine story by weighing it down with a lot of nuts and bolts it didn’t need”. Other critics found it more endearing.

Ben Travis awarded it four stars, calling it “an enchanting blend of Disney twinkle and Tim Burton’s dark whimsy”.

However, Peter Bradshaw’s review called it “a flightless pachyderm of a film that saddles itself with 21st Century shame at the idea of circus animals”. While admitting there were some moments where Dumbo “teeters on the verge of flight”, those moments were “cancelled out by boredom, as the pointlessly complicated and drawn out story grinds on to its tiresome conclusion”.

Chris Hunneysett gave the film three stars, writing: “For a film set in the circus, it lacks the toothy grandstanding pizzazz which Hugh Jackman brought to his smash, The Greatest Showman… “This Dumbo story does occasionally fly – but only just.”

‘Looks glorious’ Jamie East’s three-star review said the remake “has all the darkness we expect from a Disney film”, such as death, abuse and bigotry. But he said it lacked heart. “It’s as if Tim Burton kept forgetting to be Tim Burton and felt like he should be making The Greatest Showman 2,” he wrote. “Having said that – It looks utterly glorious. The animals are perfectly rendered and the Art-Deco universe is splendorous.”

Eve’s back in the New Killing Eve Trailer

Valentine’s Day this year brought more than just a surge in last-minute chocolate and flower sales and the lingering feeling of disappointment for many. It also delivered the teaser trailer for the much-anticipated second series of Killing Eve.

Another trailer has arrived, and it promises a reassuring blend of spy craft, obsession and great albeit terrible clothing choices. Originated in the brain of Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Killing Eve continues the cat-and-mouse thriller that sees the return of assassin Villanelle (Jodie Comer) and operative Eve Polastri (Sandra Oh). It seems the roles of hunter and hunted might be flipped as their mutual obsession continues.

Expect plenty of witty dialogue and perfectly-pitched awkwardness, as seen in the trailer with that literal water cooler moment. Fiona Shaw and Sean Delaney are among those returning, with director Damon Thomas and executive producer Emerald Fennell in charge this time. The new episodes start on AMC and BBC America in the States on 7 April, but there’s no exact date yet for it to arrive in the UK. Hopefully we won’t have to wait as long this time…

Korean band BTS release thier new album Map of the Soul: Persona

Korean band BTS will release their new album next month and have shared the first taste of their album ‘Map Of The Soul: Persona’ in their new comeback trailer.

The band recently confirmed that the new tracks would be released on April 12, marking a new era for the group following their 2017-18 trilogy ‘Love Yourself’.  Part of the clip features leader RM rapping in front of a blackboard with words related to psychologist Carl Jung’s theory about the human psyche, including persona, ego, and shadow.

The title of BTS’ new album refers to that theory. Graffiti is painted on the walls of the classroom, including phrases like “Who am I?” And “Who are you?”. Further details of ‘Map Of The Soul: Persona’, including tracklists and album artwork, have yet to be confirmed. The band will celebrate its release by making an appearance on SNL on April 13.

On March 26 saw the release of RM’s latest collaboration with Honne. The rapper featured on a new version of their song ‘Crying Over You’. The upcoming range of BTS Mattel dolls were also unveiled online yesterday. The collection was inspired by the seven-piece band’s music video for ‘Idol’. The dolls will reportedly be released in September.

BTS will return to the UK in June to perform two shows at Wembley Stadium as part of the ‘Love Yourself: Speak Yourself’ world tour. Tickets for the first concert sold out within 90 minutes. The gigs follow the band’s UK debut last year, when they performed two sold-out shows at London’s The O2.

TV Review: ‘Maniac’ With Emma Stone and Jonah Hill

TV Review: ‘Maniac’ With Emma Stone and Jonah Hill

The most striking shots in Netflix’s new series “Maniac” — not an easy choice to make, given how unusually filmed and how askew the show’s multiple fictional universes are — tend to be the ones in which Emma Stone is emerging from an exhausting stage of a drug trial. While she’s being interrogated about what she experienced, we see her in profile, staring down a nest of cameras positioned invasively close.

When we see her straight-on, she’s drained of colour and dwarfed by a wall of video feeds of her own face, surveilled from every possible angle like the prisoner she’s become. Even as multiple simultaneous shots could expose a single false note, Stone — one of the defining movie stars of her generation — exerts supreme control over her character. She’s not just absent of vanity, but inventive and curious about what a performer can reveal, and how she can reveal it. Under the guidance of “True Detective’s” Season 1 director Cary Joji Fukunaga, Stone and her co-star Jonah Hill mark career highs in “Maniac.” Beautifully made, “Maniac” plunges viewers into a fictional world that’s both divergent from our own and instantly recognizable — and then reinvents itself several times over, skittering across time, space and genre to tell a story of connection that feels urgent and deeply, painfully human.

The two actors’ chemistry is emphasized by the degree to which they’re forced to tamp down their shared charisma. In movies, Stone has made her name on ebullience, and Hill is not far behind; both prove powerful TV presences as well, remaining eminently watchable as they introduce new skills. (Annie is fidgety and watchful; Owen looks away, unable to meet the gaze of the world, or even of his friend.) They bloom together in dreams and, returning to reality, are forced to meet with a more limited emotional vocabulary and test their relationship. Credit the streamer with producing the sort of series in which Emma Stone appears in one episode in hospital scrubs, another in gangster-moll drag and a third in an outfit that’s too good to spoil. But credit Netflix, too, with investing in a show whose tightness of narrative — 10 episodes, none much more than 45 minutes long, in a close-ended season — allows for exploration within constraints. Its power comes, in part, from its refusal to sprawl. As a trial of something new, “Maniac” passes every test, and ascends instantly to take its place among the very best TV of the year. Its eagerness to expose unexpected angles is its great gift.

Coronation Street star Maureen Lipman ‘depressed’ over battleaxe character’s costume

Coronation Street star Maureen Lipman ‘depressed’ over battleaxe character’s costume

NEW Coronation Street star Maureen Lipman has revealed her dowdy getup as Evelyn Plummer has her feeling “depressed”. The national treasure has joined the show as Tyrone Dobbs’ grandmother and while fans are thrilled at her performance, playing the dowdy battleaxe has had a different effect on the actress – especially when she looks in the mirror. Maureen has revealed Evelyn’s wardrobe has left her depressed. According to the Daily Star Maureen told them how she “gets depressed at the sight of Evelyn” adding: “There isn’t much comedy in the actual storyline by the very nature of what it is. But the lines are dry and in a way you have to put your own personality into it, and the writers start to respond to the way it is going so I can only wait and see.” It comes as fans have hailed her as the new Blanche Hunt after her cobbles debut. The new grandmother of Tyrone Dobbs – who is played by Maureen Lipman in the ITV soap – has made an immediate impact as Tyrone and Fiz tracked her down and revealed he is her grandson. Evelyn has made an immediate impact in Corrie. After a hilarious first scenes, fans likened her to the legendary mother of Deirdre Barlow who ruled Weatherfield with her iron tongue right up until her death in 2009. One wrote: “Evelyn is already so classic! Reminds me of Blanche #Corrie” A second added: “We needed a newer Blanche and Evelyn could very well fit that bill with her bitter vitriol. #Corrie”

Another tweeted: “On the positive side, Maureen Lipman is rather good as Evelyn/Blanche 2.0 #Corrie”

ITV Tyrone had a candid chat with gran Evelyn about his mum. She made her presence felt after telling the mechanic she doesn’t have any pictures of his biological mum because she lost them all in a fire. But she will soon move into Tyrone’s house despite her immediate rejection. She also annoys all the locals at the Rovers Return when she takes part in the pub quiz and shouts out the wrong answer, causing her team to lose. Fiz, played by Jennie McAlpine, suggests that it might be time for Evelyn to find somewhere else to live but Tyrone fiercely disagrees. Coronation Street’s Tyrone Dobbs gets a shock from his dad ITV She claimed all pictures of his mum were lost in a fireLater Evelyn, played by screen legend Maureen Lipman, is extremely interested to learn that Tyrone was once engaged to Maria Connor. She then upsets him by telling him that she lost all the photos she had of his mum in a house fire. Tyrone, Alan Halsall, was left stunned recently when it was revealed the woman he believed to be his mum, Jackie Dobbs, wasn’t he biological mum after all. Darren, the man he thought was his dad, dropped the bombshell on him last week that Jackie hadn’t given birth to Ty.

 

Bodyguard: The show’s ‘bold’ twists are keeping viewers guessing

There are unanswered questions about Richard Madden’s character David Warning: This contains a lot of spoilers! Seven million people tuned in to the fourth episode of BBC One’s drama Bodyguard on Sunday – and the political thriller has left viewers guessing about what’s really going on in a way that hasn’t been the case with many recent shows. In Sunday’s episode, DS David Budd (played by Richard Madden) tried to deal with the aftermath of a bomb during a speech by Home Secretary Julia Montague (Keeley Hawes). And one major plot twist, in particular, has generated conspiracy theories.

The show revolved around Madden’s and Hawes’ characters – but on Sunday, viewers were told Hawes’ home secretary was killed in the bomb. The show’s creator Jed Mercurio – who was also responsible for Line of Duty – told Radio Times viewers would never see her death coming. “I like to try to do things that move the story on,” he said. “With Bodyguard I wanted to have this event mid-series that would completely alter the dynamic.” Growing up, he struggled to believe in TV drama because he knew the central characters wouldn’t die, he said. “I remember watching TV as a kid and, whenever there was some sort of jeopardy involving the hero, I could reassure myself that they were what I’d call a ‘can’t-die’ character, so everything would be OK.” Hawes herself thanked fans for their reactions on Twitter. Breaking the TV rules It’s highly unusual for a drama to kill off one of the central characters halfway through. “It’s a real shock because the whole show, the whole advertising, the whole talk about this entire drama has been the dynamic between her and the bodyguard,” Buzzfeed TV editor Scott Bryan told BBC Radio 5 Live. “And then, in episode three – not a pivotal episode in a normal run of things – to kill off your main character is a bold, bold move.” Sarah Hughes from The Guardian said echoed those thoughts, writing: “The death of Home Secretary Julia Montague at the drama’s half-way point was a bold move, but I’d argue, despite the hole it now leaves, a brilliant one.” We know from Line of Duty that Mercurio is the master of the plot twist – Hawes was in series two and three before being bumped off in that too. It’s unusual for shows to unexpectedly kill off a major character – although it happens, like with Lisa Faulkner in the second episode of Spooks, or Sean Bean’s Ned Stark in the first season of Game of Thrones. But it’s even more bold when a show centres so closely around two people. Was Montague’s death fake news?

Mercurio said: “He’s the genuine article, a real leading man. And I think this role has put him very much in the spotlight for bigger things.” Talks with the BBC about a second series are unlikely to happen until the first season has finished. “You have to wait until the end because anything can happen,” Mercurio said. “Some shows do nosedive at the end, or some piece of content could become incredibly controversial and affect the way the show is seen. In the end, you have to accept that the broadcaster holds all the cards.”

 

Emmerdale spoilers: Robert Sugden delivered Rebecca White shock in creepy Lachlan twist

Emmerdale spoilers: Robert Sugden delivered Rebecca White shock in creepy Lachlan twist

Emmerdale fans have been gripped to the ongoing saga involving Lachlan White (played by Thomas Atkinson).  The troubled teen was mercifully sent to prison after his evil ways were discovered on the ITV soap.  However, he has been using his wily ways to con the police into giving him information he wants.  Particularly, Lachlan is using Rebecca White (Emily Head) as a bargaining tool.  In the coming weeks, it will be Robert Sugden (Ryan Hawley) who presses Lachlan for information on the killer’s aunt.  Lachlan immediately turns on the mind games and toys with Robert. The murderous teen reveals he had planned to kill Robert and Liv Flaherty (Isobel Steele).

Furthermore, Lachlan reveals he didn’t kill Rebecca after threatening to when he kidnapped her.  Robert immediately tries to get information on where the mother of his child is.  But will Lachlan give up the vital information? Or will he keep toying with Robert? However, it seems Rebecca is alive and well, but there’s a big twist on the horizon.  It transpired last night she has been kept in a separate house in the middle of nowhere.  She appeared to look healthy and clean – miles away from her last appearance in Emmerdale when she was being mistreated by Lachlan.  However, there will be one final twist on the horizon after it seems a nurse who has been looking after her could turn out to be the end of her.  It seemed the nurse was completely on Lachlan’s side , as she defended him on multiple occasions.  While being force-fed drugs, Rebecca begged to be left alone, insisting she was not mad.  The sinister nurse reassured: “You’ve had a head injury, you get confused sometimes.” Rebecca hit back: “Look I told you, my nephew tried to kill me, he killed our whole family.”

The nurse soothed: “It was a tragic accident. Nobody’s fault. He loves you. He’s paying me a lot of money to help you rest and recover.  “ You don’t want to end up in an institution do you? Then you won’t be able to be with your son.” Will Rebecca ever be able to overcome Lachlan’s killer grip on her?
