I don’t know about you, but The Crown is hands down my favourite TV show and not-so-guilty pleasure. The fourth season starts this week and I’m particularly excited because this is the beginning of the Diana years. I can’t wait to look back on that time in the ’80s when a shy, inexperienced teenager was thrust into the spotlight and slowly transformed into the self-assured and beloved royal we still remember today. If you can’t wait to see what the new season has in store for fans, head to page 14 for New Idea’s Crown Special, where we reveal some of the main storylines covered. Now, I’m off to find my tiara and ball gown – enjoy!…

andy lee’s wedding surprise

They’ve been dating for six years, and now Andy Lee and his partner, Rebecca Harding, have sparked fresh speculation they’ve tied the knot! Last week, 30-year-old Bec took to Instagram to share a photo of her and Andy, 39, looking very much like a bride and groom – and many of her followers assumed the post was a surprise wedding announcement! “I thought you pulled a sneaky wedding,” one wrote, while another expressed similar sentiments, sharing, “I thought you had a surprise wedding when I first looked!! That dress.” It comes after Bec said her nuptials would be far from traditional. “I’ve never been one of those girls who would look at bridal magazines and say, ‘that’s my ideal wedding dress’ or ‘that’s the venue that I want to get married at,’” she revealed…

johnny loses court case

Johnny Depp has come off second best in his libel case against News Group Newspapers, who published an article in The Sun newspaper that labelled the actor a “wife beater”. Throughout the three-week trial, Johnny denied the newspaper and ex-wife Amber Heard’s accusations that he physically assaulted her multiple times during their brief marriage. Following the ruling, Johnny’s legal team said it would be “ridiculous” if he didn’t appeal the “perverse and bewildering” decision. “Most troubling is the judge’s reliance on the testimony of Amber Heard, and corresponding disregard of the mountain of counter-evidence ... which completely undermined the allegations, point by point. All of this was overlooked,” said Jenny Afia, representing Johnny‘s legal counsel. Johnny, 57, and Amber, 34, will face off again next May, in a $70 million defamation lawsuit he has…

lori loughlin christmas behind bars!

She did the crime, now she’s doing the time! On October 30, Lori Loughlin began her two-month stint at the Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin, California for her part in the US college admissions cheating scandal. And with sources confirming that the former Full House star won’t be released early unless there’s a coronavirus outbreak, she’s set to spend Christmas behind bars! Though Lori, 56, initially made outrageous requests – reportedly demanding a private cell and a reduced sentence because of recent coronavirus outbreaks – they were shot down. A prison spokeswoman confirmed the actress would “be treated the same as any other inmate”. “Lori is in a really low place,” says the insider. “A lot of things can and do go horribly wrong behind bars. She’s now living a nightmare.” FELICITY HUFFMAN: FINALLY FREE! Felicity…

ben & matt moving to byron!

Matt Damon has reportedly bought a $22 million mansion in Byron Bay – and now the 50-year-old’s best mate, Ben Affleck, is also eyeing up a move to the NSW coastal town, which has been inundated with Hollywood celebrities in recent months. Sources tell New Idea that Ben, 48, is looking to find a place to escape LA, and has been talking to both his girlfriend, Ana de Armas, and ex-wife, Jennifer Garner, about possibilities that could work for them all. “They all love the idea of Australia. Ben’s already reached out to Matt’s property broker to find him and his family a secluded place. He’d even consider building a dream home on an ocean-view plot.”…

beckham reality show!

The Beckham family have landed a $29 million reality show deal with Netflix – but Victoria and David will be taking a back seat to their 9-year-old daughter, Harper! According to a source, the streaming giant had no plans to greenlight the series, until they saw footage of Harper parodying Posh in the designer’s enormous closet. “They weren’t all that interested, especially after Victoria’s Coming to America show produced nothing but cringes,” tells our insider. “But Harper has made them marketable again, and there’s a big push to make her the star of the whole show. “The idea of her navigating her brothers’ dating lives, her famous parents and her tweenager dilemmas has bosses salivating.” Meanwhile, a second mole says Posh, 46, and Becks, 45, are “getting a string of spruce-ups, for any close-ups using…
