Holiday locations popular with the likes of Heidi Klum, 48, Chrissy Teigen, 35, Kate Hudson, 42, and loved-up couple Katy Perry, 36, and Orlando Bloom, 44, include Venice, Capri, Lake Como, Florence and the Amalfi Coast. Many of the famous visitors not only let their hair down but abandoned their usual strict eating regimes to relish delicious food like focaccia bread and pasta. But Chrissy revealed that she declined the local wines as she was on a “quest to have my first sober Italian getaway”.

This week Angela Bloomfield, who became a household name after starring in Kiwi soap Shortland Street as Rachel McKenna, shares how meeting her new boss, The Block’s Lauren Mirabito, was “meant to be”.

It’s been just over a year since he lost his role as leader of the National Party, but at his home in Tauranga, surrounded by his bubbly three children, wife Natalie and their affectionate dog Jasper, Simon Bridges has a lot to smile about. “It’s undeniable that when you work 100 hours per week, it takes its toll, it ages you,” he says. “But as I sit here, I feel like a box of birds, I really do.” The 44-year-old is relishing the extra time he now has to spend with his family and the opportunity to be more involved in household tasks. “We’re just doing normal things and I’m doing a lot of firsts with my kids,” Simon says, speaking about Emlyn, nine, Harry, seven, and Jemima, three. “I’m even doing a…

He’s her lobster! It’s the day that Friends fans have been waiting for as sources have revealed that Jennifer Aniston and David Schwimmer are dating.

During the 90-minute special, Jen, 52, and David, 54, revealed they had feelings for each other during the 10 seasons the sitcom was filming, but had never acted on them. “At some point, we were both crushing hard on each other, but it was like two ships passing because one of us was always in a relationship,” David shared. Jennifer added, “We just channelled all of our adoration and love for each other into Ross and Rachel.” But all the reminiscing seems to have stirred up old feelings, and now they’re both single, they…
