inside bindi & chandler’s babymoon retreat

›Three months after their lockdown wedding, Bindi Irwin and Chandler Powell have finally enjoyed a romantic honeymoon. It’s thought the newlyweds took some time away from their jobs at Australia Zoo to check into a luxury rainforest retreat for a eco-friendly holiday.

It’s the Irwins, Terri, 55, gave a rare insight into the financial struggles faced by the Irwin family during the closure. “I can’t even come close to paying bills; we are having to stand down staff and it’s very emotional,” Terri said during the episode. “I’m the pilot of a big plane and the plane is going down, and I’m handing out all the parachutes I’ve got.” On a typical day, the zoo spends about $78,000 a week on feeding the animals and half its income on wages, totalling a mammoth $400,000 a week. But without visitors, the Irwin family were forced to cut jobs and…

Nigella Lawson has confessed to actually enjoying the COVID-19 isolation, revealing she has “gone feral” and plans on maintaining social distancing even when the lockdown is over.
