COSENTINO I NEARLY DIED! As an escapologist, Cosentino puts his life on the line every time he performs. But the Grand Illusionist reveals to New Idea that he recently had a brush with death that was a little too close for comfort. The 36-year-old was rehearsing a water tank stunt at the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore when he struggled to unlock one of four padlocks and passed out. “I get the first one undone, I get the second one undone, I miss the third but I move on,” he recalls. But Cosentino reveals that after getting the fourth lock undone, he couldn’t get the third to budge. “My brother is my stage manager, and he knows all my cues and timing,” he says. “So, he could see my slowing down to the point where I’d…

MEGHAN BANS HARRY FROM SEEING HIS BEST FRIEND!
“Henpecked” Harry is banned from seeing his best mate Tom Inskip, after he told the prince not to marry Meghan, according to reports in Tatler. “Hang out with the Clooney/Beckham/Soho House set and be assailed for being too Hollywood, for forcing your henpecked husband to abandon his old, country-set muckers – including Tom ‘Skippy’ Inskip, the ultra-loyal, tight-lipped Harry pal, who, it’s said, advised Harry not to marry Meghan and has paid the price: banishment.”…

AS THE WORLD WAITS HAS BABY SUSSEX ARRIVED?
As anticipation builds ahead of the newest royal baby’s arrival, there are reports circulating that the Duchess of Sussex may have already given birth. New Idea has learnt that not only could baby Sussex have arrived without fanfare, but Meghan and Harry may have disregarded all royal protocol and traditions in a bid to retain their privacy during this momentous time. “There’s all sorts of talk in royal circles that Meghan and Harry have already had the baby,” divulges a royal source. “No-one would be surprised if they had – after all, they’re such a private couple and have never done anything by the books. They could’ve had the baby and tucked themselves away in private, away from the spotlight – that wouldn’t surprise anyone.” Despite the world’s focus on the couple throughout…

WILLIAM & ROSE RUMOURS ROCK KATE
They are the royal rumours which have left Kate boiling with rage and that threaten to ruin her relationships with close friends known as the “Turnip Toffs”. The Duchess of Cambridge has reportedly told husband Prince William to “banish” near neighbour Rose Hanbury after a “terrible falling out” with her “rural rival”. Rose is the Marchioness of Cholmondeley, whose husband David, the Marquess of Cholmondeley, is a close pal of William’s. She is known as a “beguiling socialite” and a “glamorous ex-model” – and until this year the two couples got on well, living just 6km apart in Norfolk, near the Queen’s Sandringham estate. The royals and the aristocrats are all part of a set of wealthy farmers and landowners known as the “Turnip Toffs”. So what are the rumours which have torn them…

NICOLE COLLAPSES ON SET!
Dramatic pictures of Nicole Kidman on set filming her latest series show the actress falling over and collapsing, leaving onlookers to wonder if the actress is burnt out. Cameramen rushed to the scene as the actress fell to the ground on the New York set, possibly from exhaustion. Last week, images emerged of the mother of four looking painfully thin and gaunt, and sources close to the star voiced their concerns. “Everyone is very worried about Nicole,” a source tells New Idea. “She’s been pushing herself so hard recently – working so much with back-to-back movies, TV series, and never takes a break in between. “It’s obvious that she’s lost weight recently and with her hectic schedule, it’s no surprise that it all became too much for her and she collapsed on set,” they continue.…
