Carter, who used to be a stripper with troupe the Dreamboys, was removed from the Elstree house in summer 2017 after throwing a bottled drink across the room before storming out after an explosive argument erupted over him being a “role model to his son”. After being called to the Diary Room, Carter was chastised for his “unacceptable behaviour” before being told to pack his bags for good. Now reports claim that Carter could be heading back to reality television on a different channel, looking for his perfect match on ITV2 hit Love Island. “Lotan’s really up for it and he’s been training so he looks his best on camera,” a source told The Sun Online. “He’s got some really good stories about celebs, though, and would make great TV.” The insider added that Carter, … [Read more...] about Is Big Brother’s Lotan Carter in talks to star on Love Island?

Sky News reported that the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) is set to publish its long awaited report into the audit sector this week.

GAME of Thrones star Nathalie Emmanuel was working the tills at Hollister when she got the call that would change her life forever. The former Hollyoaks actress, 30, had quit the E4 soap three years ago and was still trying to make ends meet when US broadcaster HBO offered her the chance to audition for the smash hit fantasy series. Nathalie could never have imagined that six years on she’d be sitting down to watch herself play Emilia Clarke’s right-hand woman Missandei in the phenomenon’s grand finale on Sunday night.
