We needed a good news story right now and little AJ’s miracle survival after four days lost in the NSW bush was it. I shed a tear (or three!) when I watched his relieved and ecstatic mum Kelly Elfalak cuddle her bewildered little boy after four days apart on my TV screen. It made me hug my own 2-year-old that bit closer, too. Read our report on the amazing effort to reunite the little boy with his family on page 6. Another story that brought a tear to my eye was the incredible recounts from the survivors of the 9/11 attacks, 20 years on. It’s hard to believe so much time has passed, but their tales of hope and healing in our six-page special on page 32 are truly inspirational! With The…

5 things we’re talking about this week!

1 Joshua’s totally wrong! Joshua Jackson has shut down hopes of a Dawson’s Creek reunion, admitting he thinks no-one would watch it as the cast is too old. “Nobody needs to hear Pacey grunting when he gets out of a chair,” he told The Guardian of his character. 2 Kanye’s telling lyrics Kayne West and Kim Kardashian filed for divorce in February – and maybe now we know why! The rapper has hinted he may have cheated on the reality star after she gave birth to their kids North and Saint in the lyrics to his new song ‘Hurricane’. “Here I go with a new chick,” he sings. 3 Paging Dr Montgomery … If you thought you’d seen the last of Addison Montgomery at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital, then buckle in.

miracle in the bush

Hungry, shaking with cold and sitting in a creek bed cupping water into his mouth, little Anthony “AJ” Elfalak was surviving only on instinct when he was spotted by rescuers in a police helicopter. For four days and three nights, an extensive search by family and friends, scores of emergency services officers, sniffer dogs and over 385 volunteers had failed to find any trace of the boy who went missing on September 3 while playing with his three brothers on his family property in NSW’s Hunter Valley. Police will tell you they never gave up hope of locating the toddler, but with each passing hour the likelihood of finding AJ alive was growing slimmer. When word came through on Monday morning the non-verbal toddler with autism had been found, his physically and emotionally…

kaley’s shock split has she moved on?

Celebrating their wedding anniversary on June 30, actress Kaley Cuoco and professional equestrian Karl Cook gushed over each other on Instagram. “I love you oh so much you have no idea,” wrote the Big Bang Theory actress, while her husband noted their three years together “felt like just a flash”, adding, “I love you so much and I can’t wait for a million more years!!” That may have been a stretch – just over two months later, it was all over. “Despite a deep love and respect for one another, we have realised that our current paths have taken us in opposite directions,” they wrote in a joint statement announcing their divorce on September 3. “There is no anger or animosity, quite the contrary … We have made this decision together…

adele & rich it’s getting serious!

She’s made a habit of singing about heartbreak and healing in the past, but Adele is likely feeling inspiration of a different kind – after falling hard and fast for sports agent Rich Paul. The pair, who were first spotted together at a basketball game on July 17, have been getting close since they hit things off a few months ago and insiders say things are heating up between them. “She is having fun dating Rich,” a source tells WHO’s sister publication People. “They spend a lot of time together. Adele seems very happy.” The 33-year-old was spotted enjoying a date night with her new beau, 40, in Los Angeles on August 30. Showing off her gorgeous pins in a plaid mini skirt and long black boots, the singer stunned as…

a new woman

When Adele hit the SNL stage in October last year, even she couldn’t resist acknowledging her obvious transformation. “I know I look really, really different since you last saw me, but actually because of all the COVID restrictions and the travel bans, I had to travel light and only bring half of me, and this is the half that I chose,” the 15-time Grammy winner teased at the time. But jokes aside, Adele has never looked better after adopting a healthier diet and a regular exercise routine that includes Pilates and weights. “Her weight loss happened because she has cut down drinking and is eating more real food,” a source said. “But she now loves her physical transformation, too. She is more confident, dresses differently, and she just seems happier overall.” Although…
