Showbiz 10: “We will use the money wisely to help good causes”

Showbiz 10, this week a quick rundown of what’s been happening in the world of entertainment.

No I Dos

Ex-EastEnders actress Tamzin Outhwaite has spoken about how she currently has no plans to get hitched to her boyfriend Tom Child, or any other fella for that matter.

This news delights her daughters who don’t want her to get married. Tamzin was previously wed to actor Tom Ellis.

They tried to make me go to rehab and I said yes, yes yes

McFly bandmember Dougie Poynter is to discuss his struggle with alcohol and substance abuse in an ITV documentary about the band.

In the programme, according to The Sun, ‘Dougie explained that two years after he suggested an indefinite hiatus for McFly, he suffered a relapse’ that sent him back to rehab for the second time. The programme talks about his addiction to Valium.

Hard Phil to swallow

It’s been such a long and depressing 2020 that it may have slipped your mind that back in January after decades in the closet Phillip Schofield bust out of it on This Morning, having decided his sexuality finally needed liberating.

But this was no Stephen Gately or Julian Clary moment, as Phillip has a wife and grown-up children, who apparently were as clueless about his love of cock as the rest of us. Now Pip says his marriage and family life are still “a work in progress”.

If it had been me, Pip dear, you’d be working your way to a new home and progressing into a divorce.

Movember Tash

He was a stalwart of Emmerdale for twenty years and lit up the Strictly dancefloor, however, Kelvin Fletcher’s Movember ‘tash has given fans a fright. One even said he looked like a ‘1970s porn star.’ Oh, we can only wish darlings!

Strictly scary

“We go shopping, touch something, it’s [Covid] on a box, not even necessarily at the BBC. It could be anywhere out there… I’m so nervous to go out the front door in case I absolutely have to. So vigilance and hoping you’re not one of the ones who get it.” – Strictly Come Dancing Head Judge Shirley Ballas on Talk Radio

The Strictly Come Dancing Head Judge spoke about how scared she is of catching Coronavirus following professional dancer Katya Jones catching the virus in, its believed, a sandwich shop.

Kind legacy

Caroline Flack’s mum Christine is set to donate part of the late presenter’s fortune to charitable causes after the Love Island host left no official will.

The ITV2 personality passed away earlier this year having struggled to deal with serious issues in her personal life. Now, following her suicide, her family aim to gift some of the money from her estate to charities Caroline supported.

“We will use the money wisely to help good causes that Caroline was passionate.” – Christine Flack, quoted in OK magazine

Just a little prick

Linda Lusardi told Good Morning Britain she has no intention of being vaccinated for coronavirus when the vaccine becomes available in the UK. This is despite the illness almost killing her earlier this year.

‘My concern is there hasn’t been enough testing done. I know you had a scientist, Chris Smith, on the other day who said people who had Covid who have this vaccination may have side effects that are derogatory to the person.’

Just a little prick again

Star of Made in Chelsea and current Strictly Come Dancing favourite Jamie Lang has flashed online again.

It isn’t the first time the 32-year-old has accidentally been seen with his cock out. Back in 2013, his erect willy was exposed on Twitter when it ‘in error’ went out on his girlfriend’s account.

There is also a video of the reality personality bare in the shower when he was Snapchatted naked in the shower. The latest 2020 flash came in error when he walked naked through a room unaware girlfriend Sophie was broadcasting live to Instagram at the time.

Moore money for charity

Adam Thomas’ son Teddy has raised more than £10,000 for charity by dressing up as Captain Sir Tom Moore.

100-year-old Tom, of course, captured the hearts of the nation by fundraising for the NHS during the first UK lockdown.


This week it has been farewell to Lord Jonathan Sacks, former chief rabbi, aged 72, actor John Fraser died at the age of 89, Scooby-Doo co-creator Ken Spears died aged 82, former Kent batsman Graham Cowdrey passed aged 56, and Tommy Heinsohn the Boston Celtics legend died aged 86.
