‘TROUBLEMAKER’ PIERS FLIRTS WITH CAROL We’re sure Piers Morgan’s wife Celia Walden wasn’t too pleased to see him flirting with Carol Vorderman on Twitter last week! After seeing the former Good Morning Britain host complain about the British weather, Carol wrote, ‘You should come up to Wales P… it’s roasting here.’ Piers then cheekily replied, ‘I was thinking of somewhere a little hotter C, though having seen your recent Instagram pix…’ along with a string of flame emojis. The former Countdown presenter then quipped, ‘You little b****y troublemaker.’ That’s Piers! PET OF THE WEEK Martin and Shirlie Kemp’s pooch Iris looks a natural poser. Cute! MARTINES health fears Martine McCutcheon has opened up about her battle with Lyme disease and fibromyalgia, and how the conditions leave her with terrible migraines. The actor, who was diagnosed with Lyme…

claudia to quit strictly?

It’s hard to imagine anyone other than Claudia Winkleman standing alongside Tess Daly to present Strictly Come Dancing, but she’s admitted that her future on the show isn’t certain. Claudia, 49, has co-hosted the main show since 2014, but started out on the BBC2 spin-off It Takes Two way back in 2004. A lot has changed for Claudia since then – both professionally and personally – and, as the saying goes, all good things must come to an end… As one of the most prominent faces on TV, the pull on Claudia’s time will undoubtedly be high, but she’s the first to confess that she’s been incredibly lucky when it comes to work. She says, ‘I’ve been so stupid lucky in my job and right now I’m thinking, “How is this still going…

did jen dump brad for david?

We never thought we’d be happy to hear that Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt had cooled things for good, but that was before Jen was rumoured to be growing close to her former Friends co-star David Schwimmer. The real-life Rachel and Ross confessed to having had feelings for each other in the past during the 25th anniversary special of the sitcom, but added that they’d channelled them into the storyline to avoid any awkwardness on set. As Woman previously reported, Jen, 52, and ex-husband Brad, 57, were closer than ever for a time this year, but it seems she’s finally had enough of waiting around – and has decided to pick David! Too much pressure ‘She made the decision’ Ever since Jen and Brad reunited on the red carpet at the 2020 Screen Actors Guild…

the royal insider

IS THE SUSSEX/OBAMA LOVE-IN OVER? As endorsements go, they don’t come much bigger than the Obamas. The former President and First Lady enjoy God-like status among the very people the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have built their Archewell brand around. If their new life in the USA is to succeed, being welcomed into the country’s exclusive liberal elite is vital for the couple who shunned the stiff-upper-lipped hierarchy of the British Establishment. The likes of Oprah, Michelle and Barack are more to Harry and Meghan than A-list friends drawn together by the shackles of celebrity life – they are the gatekeepers to the very world Harry has risked everything to become a part of. That was why the exiled prince and his Californian wife were so conspicuous by their absence at Obama’s 60th…

would you tell a friend their husband is cheating?

We’ve probably all told the odd white lie to a friend. ‘That dress looks great on you’ or ‘Sure, the meal you cooked was delicious!’ We do it because we love them and we don’t want to hurt their feelings. A mistruth about fashion or cooking is arguably forgivable, but what about when it comes to their relationship? Rod Stewart’s wife Penny Lancaster, 50, recently confessed that a friend’s partner made a pass at her, but said she decided not to say anything to her pal because there were ‘children involved’, instead choosing to distance herself from the situation. But keeping such a huge secret – lying by omission, some might call it – can take its toll on a friendship. Penny didn’t clarify whether she still maintained a relationship with…
