love island for the 50-plus?

Anyone else addicted to Love Island? I am. Luke T was in my daughter’s class at school. His mum is Beverley Trotman (she of the amazing voice in X Factor back in 2007), so showbiz clearly runs in THAT family. I’m not sure it’s the school connection, but I’m now rooting for Luke T and his best buddy Luke M (both above). But what I’d really love to see (turn to page 36) is Ulrika Jonsson’s idea for Love Island for the over-50s. Ulrika, Lizzie Cundy, Bev Turner (James Cracknell’s ex) – and me. ITV if you are reading this, there are a lot of us, single ladies, who don’t mind donning a bikini in the sun. And, call me biased, but I think the conversation might be a tad more interesting. After…

start your week with a smile

1 FEATHERED FRIENDS We’re a little bit obsessed with these gorgeously flamboyant flamingos! The picture was posted by ZSL Whipsnade Zoo and it’s certainly brightened up our week. If only we could balance that well on one leg… 2 Who wowed the crowd? It was a case of the ‘golden girls’ out in force at this year’s Oscars. Sandra Oh, 48, went all out with sequins and ruffles. Charlize Theron, 44, meanwhile had two gowns – an LBD and this fabulous fringed Dior dress, and Jessica Alba, 38, looked statuesque in her Atelier Versace number. 3 BE PREPARED! She might only be 10, but Julia Butters looked every inch the A-lister at the Oscars. The youngster, who delivered a standout performance in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, was interviewed on the red…

‘it was hard as a mum to watch that’

It was hardly the stuff of fairy tales – a married man, leaving his wife for a woman almost 30 years his junior. But Sabina Monteys-Fullam, 48, had no choice but to support daughter Summer, 24, when she fell for twinkly eyed star baker, Paul Hollywood, 53, while working behind the bar of his local Kent pub. Except now, the mum-of-two is the one dealing with the fall-out, after a humiliating ordeal – where Paul tried to force Summer to sign a nondisclosure agreement (NDA), leading to an acrimonious split in August 2019. In her first interview since the couple parted ways, protective mum, Sabina, said: ‘It’s been hard for her and it’s been hard as a mum, as a parent watching that.’ Summer and Paul had known each other for years, before their…

oti & kelvin’s late-night liaisons

They captivated the nation with their racy routines on Strictly Come Dancing – and it’s clear dance partners Oti Mabuse, 29, and Kelvin Fletcher, 36, had plenty to catch up on during a recent late-night liaison. Under the cloak of darkness, the pair were spotted arriving at London’s Soho Sanctum Hotel together at 3am on Saturday 8 February, for a nightcap. Oti, who has been married to German dancer Marius Lepure since 2016, met up with the married dad-of-two again the following evening at another hotel for a late night drink. Their reunion came as the former Emmerdale star finished the final leg of the Strictly Come Dancing tour on 9 February at London’s O2. Kelvin, who lifted the coveted glitterball last year with Oti, danced with Strictly pro Janette Manrara, 36, on the…

loose women open up

One of the reasons daytime chat show Loose Women is such a success is because, as well as grilling a colourful array of celebrities and debating the thorny issues of the day, the ladies on its panel are not afraid to lay it on the line when it comes to their own personal struggles. And that’s never less so than when they’re talking about their mental health. They will give it the on-air killer smile and glam up for a red carpet, but they are also honest about the fact that sometimes, behind the scenes, life isn’t always picture-perfect – in fact, from ‘gaslighting’ to depression to severe OCD, it can be pretty messy. They will talk about the ugly stuff – and that is truly powerful. Andrea McLean: ‘I’ve been…

spot on!

TOP TIP! Soften up a leather-look skirt with a girly polka dot print tunic. It’s fun, yet smart enough for the office. TOP TIP! Jumpsuits are comfortable and look stylish paired with trainers and a rucksack for a casual look. TOP TIP! Pleated skirts are hot for spring, this dotty print would also look great with a pastel top and shoes. PHOTOGRAPHY: NICKY JOHNSTON STYLIST: RACHEL GOLD HAIR AND MAKE-UP: CARL STANLEY…
