It should have been the most amazing experience of our lives, but it ended up being our downfall, really," he tells the camera in the documentary. "We were the co-presenters on the Xtra Factor.

If you're in the process of buying a home, then chances are you'll have been nervously waiting on Chancellor Rishi Sunak's every word last Wednesday to find out if the stamp duty holiday was being extended. In the end it turned out the leaks were true. The Chancellor extended the stamp duty holiday by three months . This matters because over 300,000 people were said to be stuck waiting for their home purchases to go through before the end of March. If the extension hadn't happened, then they could have been out of pocket. In fact, the stamp duty holiday was extended to the end of June, with further reduced discounts available to the end of September for people living in England and Northern Ireland.

FAIR play to those sly old dogs at ITV. They’ve discovered something Gordon Ramsay is worse at than hosting BBC1’s Bank Balance. It took them less than 72 hours to do it as well. All they needed was Saturday Night Takeaway ’s Read My Lips game, a pair of headphones to muffle the noise and some bloke in Llanelli called Jamie bellowing mystery food items at Gordon via Zoom. “Sushi. SUE SHE. SUUUUE SHEEEEE,” he kept screaming at the clueless chef, who couldn’t even win poor Jamie the free holiday when he heard himself asking: “Sue who?” Nor was Gordon able to help out any of the other contestants, Rizwan, Lorna or Mala, in Manchester, who almost ate the camera in frustration, shouting: “CAR BON-ARA. CAR-BON-ARA. CAR-BON-ARA,” because it was just one of those nights when anything that could go wrong did go wrong on Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway. Audible obscenities, inappropriate jokes about Stephen Mulhern’s genitals, misfiring props, games where no one won … [Read more...] about Gordon Ramsay’s Saturday Night Takeaway goes straight into the bin
TAMARA Joy has revealed her Married At First Sight Australia “husband” Dan Webb not only cheated on her but terrified her in a drunken rage. The ex-administrator, who was at the centre of an explosive wife-swapping story in the E4 series, was so scared by the bulky car broker’s off-camera outburst that she was removed from their flat. The stunning brunette was upset to learn Dan’s family nicknamed his aggressive alter-ego Hank. Speaking from her Gold Coast home, she said the terrifying incident happened shortly after he started cheating on her with pouty blonde Jessika Power. She added: “Dan and I were unhappy and cooped up in an apartment together. Producers were really pushing for me to like him, which was awkward.” On a rare day off from filming, the two went drinking with some of the husbands — Mick Gould, Mike Gunner and Mark Scrivens.

It was a great day. “But Dan started to get … [Read more...] about Married At First Sight’s Tamara Joy ‘left terrified by husband Dan’s drunken rage’
