Love Island 2022 winner Davide Sanclimenti has spoken about why he ‘refused’ to appear on hit ITV show Dancing on Ice next year. The 28-year-old Italian hunk has shared that he decided to turn down the hit show as he was ‘too busy’ to take part and follow in the footsteps of fellow Love Island alum Liberty Poole. Davide explained: “They wanted me to do Dancing On Ice this year but I refused this time around. “I have so much going on and I can’t commit to something every day and when I do something I want to do it properly. “Right now I just can’t focus on something like that, for the moment anyway, but in the future maybe I will.” They’ve already wrapped filming, Davide confirmed. ( Image: Dave Benett/Getty Images for boo) Davide also hinted to The Sun that he could have other TV work coming up, including his show with girlfriend Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu, which will see the pair travelling to Italy and Turkey.

Davide Sanclimenti has revealed he was asked to take part in Dancing on Ice 2023, but turned it down. The Love Island winner, 27, is in demand after clinching the £50,000 prize with his soul mate and absolute queen Ekin-su Cülcüloğlu. Both Davide and Ekin-su have been non-stop since Love Island, launching fashion collections, lifting each other up at the gym and filming their new reality TV series , exploring Italy and Turkey. In turn, Dancing on Ice was off the table – at least for now. ‘They wanted me to do Dancing on Ice this year but I refused this time around,’ he told The Sun. ‘I have so much going on and I can’t commit to something every day and when I do something I want to do it properly. ‘Right now I just can’t focus on something like that, for the moment anyway, but in the future maybe I will.’ Well, his decision could be great news for his Love Island pal Tasha Ghouri who recently told Metro.co.uk she would love to take part in Dancing on Ice … [Read more...] about Love Island’s Davide Sanclimenti reveals why he turned down huge Dancing on Ice offer

Having dinner at a younger relative’s house a few months ago, I inadvertently sent everyone into fits of giggles when I spoke to the Alexa. ‘Hello Alexa, could you please tell me what the weather forecast is next weekend, thank you?’ I asked. I don’t have an Alexa, so I had no idea that this wasn’t how you spoke to her. I didn’t understand what I’d done wrong. ‘Why are you talking like that?’ someone asked. I looked blankly. ‘You’re so polite,’ said the host, who is in her 20s. ‘You don’t have to say “please” or “thank you”.’ She demonstrated by berating the poor device. ‘It just sounds a bit . . . rude,’ I winced. ‘It’s like having a slave.’ Everyone laughed and rolled their eyes at how quaint and old-fashioned I was. I know it’s just a machine and doesn’t have feelings, but it still felt brusque and, well, a bit horrible. Surely it’s a slippery slope from barking orders at a machine to shouting at real-life people? So I felt somewhat vindicated last week, when I read that … [Read more...] about NHS psychiatrist DR MAX PEMBERTON: Sorry, but Alexa is making children so rude!
Patsy Palmer has been confirmed as the first contestant on Dancing on Ice . Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield announced the news on This Morning today after teasing the star's identity throughout the show. "I can't believe I'm the first one!" the former EastEnders star told the presenters as she appeared on a live link on ITV. "No backing out now, we’ve revealed you." Holly joked as Patsy beamed on screen from Los Angeles, where she now lives. “What made you want to do this? What made you want to take part?” Holly asked. “Well I didn’t obviously call them up and say ‘can I take part?’. Just out of all the things that came through at that time, this was the one that I had to really think about. “Obviously I wanted to challenge myself, get back to work, get out of my comfort zone.

Next month, after over a decade on our screens, The Walking Dead will take its final bow as season 11 draws to a close, with the first episode in the last batch having now been released on Disney Plus. It’s been an epic journey to reach this point, with characters including Rick (Andrew Lincoln), Michonne ( Danai Gurira ), Daryl (Norman Reedus), Maggie ( Lauren Cohan ) and Carol ( Melissa McBride ) suffering loss, heartbreak and tragedy over and over again… but still holding onto a glimmer of hope that they can continue to survive in a world ravaged by undead walkers. While TWD is due to draw to a close this year (before the various spin-offs are released), the comic book series on which its based actually ended in 2019. During a conversation with Metro.co.uk , the TV adaptation’s showrunner Angela Kang – who’s been a part of the production since season two – addressed how the ending of the series will branch in different directions to the comic – but will … [Read more...] about Why The Walking Dead season 11 will have vastly different ending to the comic book series as TV show comes to an end
The Walking Dead ’s last ever batch of episodes began last night, and viewers were treated to a brand new title sequence to mark the occasion. The series, which has been on the air since 2010, will come to an end in November, but it won’t be over forever as the universe is set to expand with new spin-offs. The show’s title sequence has changed ever so slightly over the years, with a gradually decaying logo greeting viewers across the first eight seasons. Season nine saw the introduction of a new intro when new showrunner Angela Kang packed it full of references and little clues about the series. Season 10 introduced fire and flames to the logo, and now season 11 has added a drip of blood to spice things up. As if eagle-eyed fans weren’t already excited for this last group of episodes, this new extended sequence has only made their anticipation more intense. In the new titles, a huge horde of walkers surrounds the living characters’ community, defended by the … [Read more...] about The Walking Dead introduces new title sequence for final episodes sending fans wild
SIR – A tax cut of £6 billion and cancelled tax rises of £40 billion equate to a fraction of the quantitative easing carried out since 2008 – just shy of £900 billion – and the cost of lockdowns – more than £300 billion. A reckoning was inevitable. Britain may struggle to service its debt, but this has been 14 years in the making. Blaming the tax cuts is disingenuous at best, dishonest at worst. Doug Smith SIR – Everyone is attacking the Government – the International Monetary Fund, the Labour Party, the BBC, and disgruntled and overlooked backbenchers. Yet the Government did what Liz Truss said it would do, which is cut taxes fast on the principle that if you let people keep their money they will spend and invest more, creating growth for the benefit of all. The Bank of England, on the other hand, is making up for lost time, having been asleep on the job of keeping a lid on inflation. It is now bailing out pension funds that were hedging their bond positions and got … [Read more...] about Letters: Tax cuts are not to blame for this long-overdue economic reckoning
