GRANT’S MEDICAL MYSTERY Grant Denyer was due to return to Channel Ten’s Dancing With The Stars last week, so his no-show has left everyone wondering – what is really wrong with the TV host? After suffering a horrible back injury last month, Denyer has been recovering in hospital and keeping his followers updated on Instagram. But a source now reveals Grant’s disappearance is due to more than just an injury and he won’t be returning to Dancing with the Stars until the last episode – just for a token appearance. According to reports, Denyer’s new show Celebrity Name Game, which replaces axed Pointless, was also due to air three weeks ago.

KATE & WILLIAM HIT BACK AT CLAIMS THEIR MARRIAGE IS OVER!
For the past month they’ve maintained a dignified silence amid rumours that their marriage is under pressure. Now, a palace source tells New Idea that behind the scenes the Cambridges are saddened by the reports, which are increasingly taking their toll. “William and Kate are really upset about the cruel lies surrounding their marriage,” says the palace source. “All the whispers about their relationship being on the rocks and spending time apart and living separate lives has really taken a toll on them – Kate especially – and they just want the rumours to stop.” False reports about William having an affair with family friend Rose Hanbury, also known as the Marchioness of Cholmondeley, have been circulating for the past few months.

Harry & Meghan’s lavish babymoon
Just days before welcoming their new baby, Meghan and Harry enjoyed a secret three-night babymoon. The royal couple stayed at the five-star Heckfield Place hotel in Hampshire where they booked a luxurious suite called The Long Room, which at $18,400 a night, comes with a dining room and private terraces.

DELTA: HAPPIER THAN EVER
Delta Goodrem looked radiant as she stepped out in Melbourne last week with her boyfriend by her side, prompting speculation that she might be on the brink of a very special announcement. The Voice judge performed at the charity River4Ward concert and looked delighted to be sharing the stage with her long-term love, Matthew Copley. While Delta sang some of her hits, Matthew was on guitar and sang back-up vocals, all the while watching his girlfriend with obvious pride and love. The event marked a surprisingly public outing for the couple, who have kept their relationship mostly under wraps since they were photographed kissing while holidaying in Hawaii in January 2018. Since then, the boyfriend and girlfriend have made only occasional appearances on each other’s social-media accounts. Delta met the fellow musician while touring in…
