The Chase fans go wild for ‘hot’ contestant John as Bradley Walsh brands him the show’s ‘most handsome’ player – The Sun

THE Chase fans went wild for "hot" contestant John this evening – with host Bradley Walsh branding him the show's "most handsome" player.

The 25-year-old biology student from Swansea appeared on the teatime quiz show earlier today, delighting viewers up and down the country as they tuned in during coronavirus lockdown.

While John and his teammates attempted to beat the Chaser and secure a big money payout, those watching at home were distracted by his dashing good looks.

Flocking to Twitter, fans swooned over the hopeful, with one gushing: "Not even focusing on John's questions, just admiring his beauty."

Another added: "John's devilishly handsomeness is somewhat offensive and also commendable!"

A third agreed: "Thank you to John for making self isolation just that bit better."

Bradley, 59, even noted the Welsh hunk's looks during the episode, which originally aired in 2015.

He said: "I've got to say John, the girls in our office are now crammed around the television.

"They said you're the most handsome contestant we've ever had on."

John had hoped to secure enough money to get a surfing van, giving him a space to get changed after hitting the waves.



However, he and his teammates lost their £36,000 prize pot to Chaser Paul Sinha.

After realising that he was trending on social media, John took to Twitter himself to acknowledge the episode repeat.

He wrote: "Repeated my episode of #thechase tonight.

"I got some simple questions wrong fair play. Great laugh seeing it again."

Brits can go out to get pet food, give blood or volunteer during coronavirus lockdown – full list of exceptions


BRITS will be allowed to go out to get pet food, volunteer or give blood during the lockdown, it's been confirmed today.

As part of new laws which came into power today, the Government laid out all the exceptions to the three-week lockdown.

⚠️ Read our coronavirus live blog for the latest news & updates

Boris Johnson has said earlier this week that no one should be going out unless they wanted to get food, medicine, for exercise once a day, or to help a vulnerable person.

And they should only be going to work if they can't work from home too, he said.

Today Matt Hancock signed emergency rules into law to cover the lockdown, which force people to stay inside.

Police will have the power to slap people with a £60 on the spot fine – which could rise to up to £1000 for repeat offenders.

The Government has warned that they could raise this to unlimited levels if people still don't obey.

The new regulations laid out all the exceptions to the rules in black and white.

Brits are able to go out of the house to get necessities for anyone in the house – that includes beloved pets too.

And if anything vital for your home breaks too, you will be allowed to leave to buy things to fix it, or get a new one.

Thankfully, members of the public will be allowed out to volunteer, and to give blood too.

More than half a million Brits have signed up to be an NHS volunteer in the last 24 hours alone as the country clubbed together to do their bit.


Reasons you CAN leave the house:

– To obtain basic necessities, including food and medical supplies for those in the same household (including any pets) or for vulnerable persons
– To collect supplies for the essential upkeep, maintenance and functioning of the household, the household of a vulnerable person, or to obtain money
– To exercise either alone or with other members of their household
– To seek medical assistance or attend medical appointment
– To provide care or emergency help to a vunerable person
– To donate blood
– To volunteer or do charity work
– To attend the funeral of family or someone you live with
– To go to court or satify bail conditions
– To access childcare
– To take kids to visit the other parent if separated
– To move house where reasonably necessary
– To go to a place of worship if a religious leader
– To access DWP services or victims of crime services
– To avoid injury or escape harm

Brits in the process of moving home have been told to stay put if they can.

However, if they are just about to move and have no other option, the new laws do allow it.

People will also be allowed out to go to court, access childcare, or take kids around to the other parents' if they are separated.

The rules also clarifies when you can gather in a group.

Boris this week banned gatherings of more than two people except in some circumstances.

When providing care to vulnerable people or emergencies, it is allowed.

And if you need to attend a family members' funeral or it can't be avoided for work, people won't face any action.

Business will also face fines if they stay open when they should have closed.

You can only meet more than two people if:

– You're part of the same household
– Where its essential for work purposes
– When attending a funeral
– When moving house
– When providing care to a vulnerable person
– When providing emergency help
– When participaing in legal proceedings or legal obligations

Lorraine Kelly and Piers Morgan co-host GMB, but fans aren’t feeling it

Lorraine Kelly joined Piers Morgan as a co-host on Good Morning Britain today.

But many ITV viewers didn't seem to be loving the new set-up.

Scottish presenter Lorraine, 60, usually hosts her show on the network at 9am.

However, instead she replaced Charlotte Hawkins and joined Piers on GMB at that time.

It was announced yesterday that Lorraine and Loose Women would both be axed amid the coronavirus outbreak.

Many seemed baffled by the new set-up online, judging by the Twitter reaction.

One wrote: "If Lorraine's usual show has been postponed/cancelled then why the f**k is she even there?!"

While another added: "You can tell from Lorraine's face that she is FUMING to be sat next to Piers!."

A third chimed in: "I just don't see #Lorraine playing second fiddle to Piers Morgan – this new show won't work."

While a fourth probed: "Oh no, what’s she doing here?!"

Will the UK go into lockdown over coronavirus? – The Sun

AS cases of coronavirus across the globe are increasing rapidly, many countries are trying to contain the spread of the virus by going into lockdown.

This involves restricting the movement of residents and only being allowed to leave home to attend work, go to a hospital or purchase food.

Will the UK go into lockdown?

Despite PM Boris Johnson describing the pandemic as "the worst public health crisis for a generation", there has been no plans as of yet for the UK to go into lockdown.

Following the advice of experts, the UK has said it will be adopting a staged response which includes daily briefings to the public.

Ministers have said it is important to get the timing right for stricter measures with health advisers assuming that Britain will not see infection rates peak for up to three months.

Official advice has been given in Scotland for people to avoid gatherings of 500 or more, and the Republic of Ireland have already closed all schools.

What are the UK doing to delay the spread of the virus?

With a major epidemic in the UK expected, the government is exploring ways to delay the spread of coronavirus and reduce the amount of people affected when the pandemic hits its peak.

England's education secretary will be meeting headteachers to discuss the next step for schools and the government have confirmed 0ver 70's will be told to stay home in the coming weeks.

Last week, Nicola Sturgeon revealed after a cobra meeting, attended by Boris Johnson, that the UK had moved from the delay to the contain phase as the situation remains to be closely monitored.

The government has said that during the delay phase:

  • Anyone with flu-like symptoms should self isolate for seven days (a fever above 37.8C or a persistent cough)
  • If someone in your home falls ill, the whole household will be told to stay home for 14 days
  • Schools should not take trips abroad

These steps are being implemented to hopefully, significantly reduce the number of infections and deaths by up to a third.

If the number of cases increase, new measures such as forcing people to stay in quarantine and troops being deployed to support emergency services could be introduced.

In addition to this, the UK, along with Japan, the eurozone, Canada, and Switzerland have joined forces with the US Central Bank to prevent coronavirus causing a global recession.

Interest rates have been cut to zero and a $700bn stimulus programme has been launched.

Which countries are currently on lockdown?

The list of countries on lockdown is rapidly growing as the virus continues to spread at an alarming rate.

The majority of the countries in lockdown are in Europe, which is the "epicentre" of the global coronavirus pandemic, according to the World Health Organization.

This is as apart from China, alarmingly, Europe has more reported cases and deaths of Covid-19, than the rest of the world combined.

The full list of all countries on lockdown are as follows;

  • Italy
  • Denmark
  • Ireland
  • Spain
  • Germany
  • Portugal
  • Czech Republic
  • France
  • China
  • Slovenia
  • Indonesia
  • El Salvador
  • New Zealand
  • Poland

'Lockdown' actually isn't a technical term used by public health officials, it is often referred to as 'mass quarantines', where residents are forced or advised to stay at home.

Although the UK seems to be moving slower than other countries in its response to Covid-19, preventative measures have been put in place, with action plans ready to enforce if the situation gets worse.

A UK lockdown does look to be inevitable in the near future, as the number of cases and deaths increase.

Celebs Go Dating’s Joshua Ritchie vomits into a toilet after leaving romantic date to be sick – The Sun

CELEBS Go Dating star Joshua Ritchie throws up in tonight's stomach-churning episode – during a date.

A teaser for Monday's show sees Charlotte Crosby's ex heaving into a toilet bowl.

Although it's not clear why the reality star, 25, is throwing up into a toilet, it could be because he'd had a bit too much to drink celebrating his final week at the dating agency.

After a solid month of dating people from outside the celebrity circle, Josh and the rest of the cast are about to jet off to the Dominican Republic with their chosen beaus for one final date.

The Bolton lad's time on the show this year was completely different to last year when he appeared on the seventh series with then girlfriend Charlotte Crosby, 30.

The pair decided to join the agency's books to help improve certain aspects of their relationship – and thought that love guru's Anna Williamson and Paul Carrick Brunson's advice would be best.


Despite trying their hardest to try and fix their relationship, the couples therapy just didn't do the trick as they called time on their relationship a few months after appearing on the show.

The Geordie lass announced the shocking news on Instagram and wrote: "Me and Josh have decided to part ways. Sadly the relationship seems to have broken drown.

"Hoping we can still remain civil and wish him the best for the future.”

Just three weeks later the Love Island star signed up to dating show again – but this time as a single man.

Charlotte soon found out about the news and branded Josh a "f***ing toe rag", whilst accusing him of using her to get on the show.

The self-confessed ladies man has been on a range of dates since starting the show alongside Alison Hammond, Amy Hart, James Lock, Dean Gaffney, Amy Childs, Olivia Bentley and Malique Thompson-Dwyer – and he certainly hasn't been on his best behaviour.

Last week he was left mortified after he was caught lying about going to a strip club after his date.



His glamorous date revealed that she saw him partying on his Instagram story, despite him insisting that he hadn't gone out.

Justifying his choice to go to the strip club, he said: "And then all the lads said let's go out after it, so I was like 'alright then'."

Admitting the game was up in a one on one with the camera, he says: "Olivia has totally busted me, but I've come up with a cunning plan and it's time to stitch up Mr James Lock."

Pinning all the blame on Lockie, he said: "I only go to them when I'm here and that's cos I'm with Lockie. He's a bad influence that man, you know."

If You Go Out Now, You Might Feel Guilty Later. I Do.

Theatregoers in London on Thursday.

On Friday I played soccer at a park. Then on Saturday evening my wife and I went and got some drinks and dinner with three other friends.

We did make concessions to the pandemic: We walked to the wine bar, avoiding public transportation or Uber. As we talked about the coronavirus — because what else is there to talk about right now — the five of us made sure we didn’t touch each other or share drinks. I got compliments on the contortions I made to scratch my face with my sleeve instead of my hands. We vigorously deployed my wife’s 62% alcohol lavender hand sanitizer.

But still, we bought hamburgers and milkshakes that servers handed to us, ate them at tables which would soon seat other customers, used trays and glasses that others would soon use, and walked home feeling a lot better than we did having stayed inside all day.

Then I woke up on Sunday morning and learned that someone I knew — someone I spend a lot of time around and had had a beer with on Thursday — was displaying all three of the most telling symptoms of the virus: fever, coughing, shortness of breath. He hadn’t yet been tested, but someone at his gym had, and came up positive. All of a sudden, I had to stare something straight in the face: I might have it, and might have infected the other patrons of the wine bar, the servers, or even my friends.

This pandemic has transformed just about every choice we make into an ethical conundrum. Ordering delivery, going to the grocery store, seeing other people, seeing your own partner — nearly every basic thing we do must now confront the question, Will that infect me and perhaps cause me to infect others?

I live in the UK, where the government has, on the advice of scientists, steered clear of the strictest measures of social distancing (though that may soon change). I have no idea if my symptomatic friend actually has COVID-19. Even if he does, I have no idea if I have the virus — at the moment I present no symptoms whatsoever. And even if I have it, I have no idea if I infected anybody else.

As I now commence isolation, I’m left to think about every single person I’ve interacted with in some way in the past several days, and who they’ve interacted with, and who they’ve interacted with, and who they’ve interacted with. How many of them are diligently washing their hands, or avoiding large gatherings, or staying away from crowded public areas such as airports? I’m reaching out to those I can think of, but how many will respond with appropriate caution? How many of them have compromised immune systems? What about their loved ones? And I now realize that a very large number of people — in China, in Italy, in Boston, in Seattle, in anywhere — are probably pondering versions of this very thing, or probably will soon. (If you have an interesting story to tell about it, I am at [email protected] I’d love to hear from you.)

Others have written eloquently of the importance of social distancing. But the scale and scope of this is something every single one of us is having to grapple with. Things that felt like a dumb overreaction a week ago — “Canceling vacation? Really?” — now feel hilariously quaint. Or if they don’t, they will soon.

If you still can’t quite believe that you need to take these measures, or that people’s lives may hang in the balance, or if you still think that it will be okay because the numbers where you live aren’t so bad yet, I am not here to scold you.

But if you do go out, and you do risk infecting somebody else, you may feel the guilt — and the fear — that I’m struggling with right now. Trust me, it’s not worth it.

Public health expert blasts government's coronavirus response

Public health expert Professor John Ashton tells Question Time audience ‘I’m embarrassed by the situation in this country’ over coronavirus response

  • Ex-director of public health John Ashton savaged UK response to coronavirus 
  • He said UK ‘lost the plot’ and ‘lost control’ as he called for more urgent efforts 
  • Government insisted less draconian approach than other countries is right one 
  • Coronavirus symptoms: what are they and should you see a doctor?

A former public health chief has blasted the government’s response to the coronavirus outbreak as he said ministers had ‘lost control’ of the situation. 

Professor John Ashton, a former regional director of public health for north-west England, said the government had ‘lost the plot’ as he questioned why it had not acted more severely. 

He said decision-makers in Whitehall had responded with ‘paternalistic’ and ‘old-fashioned’ measures as he urged them to go much further. 

The comments came after Boris Johnson announced the UK was moving from the contain phase of its response to the deadly virus to the delay phase. 

The government is now recommending anyone who gets a persistent cough or a fever should stay at home and self-isolate for seven days. 

However, the Prime Minister has stopped short of imposing a ban on mass gatherings and closing schools despite other countries around the world taking the action. 

Professor John Ashton last night accused the government of adopting an ‘old fashioned’ response to the coronavirus outbreak

Boris Johnson yesterday announced anyone with a new persistent cough or fever must self-isolate to stem the spread of the deadly virus but he opted not to close schools or ban mass gatherings

The government’s top medical advisers have insisted the approach taken by Britain is the right one given the circumstances surrounding the spread of the disease in the country.

But Mr Johnson’s warning at a press conference yesterday that many more people in the UK will die because of the outbreak has reignited calls for tougher action. 

Prof Ashton told the BBC’s Question Time programme last night that he did not ‘know where to start’ when asked for his opinion on how the government had treated coronavirus. 

He said: ‘I’m embarrassed by the situation in this country. This talk of four stages, and we’re now moving on from the containment thing – we’ve lost the plot here. 

‘We haven’t taken the action that we should have taken four or five weeks ago.’ 

Question Time presenter Fiona Bruce then asked: ‘So, what do you think we should have done four or five weeks ago?’

Prof Ashton replied: ‘Boris Johnson should have convened COBRA at the outset when it became clear what was cooking up. 

‘Countries that took firm action at the time – if you look at what happened in Hong Kong and Singapore, which had a lot of cases initially but which took firm action and they’ve got the thing under control. We’ve lost control here.’ 

The expert said he had been planning to attend Liverpool,’s Champion’s League game against Athletico Madrid on Wednesday but had ultimately decided not to due to coronavirus fears. 

‘Last night, I didn’t go to Anfield last night because I had such second thoughts about it,’ he said.

‘3,000 supporters came to Anfield last night from Madrid where they are playing football behind closed doors. 

‘The virus is around in Madrid. That virus has been shared around Merseyside last night, in the bars and clubs of Merseyside. 

‘The virus is no doubt now among us. For reasons which are totally obscure to me we have taken it as policy not to track the people who have come back from Italy, not to test the people who have come back from Italy. 

‘So the virus will now be amongst us and the government’s approach has been paternalistic, it has been old fashioned, it has been top down.’ 

As well as the self-isolation measures, Mr Johnson also yesterday announced a ban on overseas school trips and urged elderly people and people with long term serious medical conditions not to go on cruises. 

A number of countries around the world including Ireland, Italy and Norway have announced they are closing schools. 

The UK government’s advisers admitted such a measure could help stem the outbreak but they said it was not a feasible move to take now. 

They said for a closure to work it would have to last for something close to three months amid fears that would put older people asked to look after grandchildren at greater risk of harm.  

Jeremy Hunt last night urged Mr Johnson and the government to go further in responding to the deadly outbreak which the former health secretary described as a ‘national emergency’

Some medical experts said the UK’s plans were ‘balanced’ and ‘sensible’, while others have questioned whether they go far enough. 

Former health secretary Jeremy Hunt last night suggested the UK should be going further to respond to what he labelled a ‘national emergency’. 

Asked about the decision not to cancel large gatherings yet, Mr Hunt told BBC Newsnight: ‘I think it is surprising and concerning that we’re not doing any of it at all when we have just four weeks before we get to the stage that Italy is at.

‘You would have thought that every single thing we do in that four weeks would be designed to slow the spread of people catching the virus.’

He also added he was ‘personally surprised that we’re still allowing external visits to care homes’.

HGTV's Mina Starsiak Opens Up About Fertility Struggles: 'It Feels Like Your Body Is Failing'

When Mina Starsiak Hawk didn’t get pregnant with her second child right away, the Good Bones star didn’t go straight into panic mode.

“I started to get a little confused and frustrated, like it shouldn’t be taking this long,” Starsiak Hawk, 35, tells PEOPLE exclusively for this week’s issue. “This isn’t how it happened the first time.”

She and husband Steve Hawk conceived their first child, now-19-month-old son Jack Richard, almost immediately after they started trying. So after a few months of trying for baby No. 2 with no success, they sought help.

Starsiak Hawk began first-line fertility treatments including clomiphene and letrozole, oral medications meant to stimulate the ovaries to produce more eggs. But after an AMH (Anti-Müllerian hormone) test — which can help assess a woman’s ovarian reserve, or egg count — revealed devastating news, everything changed.

The average AMH range for a 35-year-old woman is from 1.5 to 4 ng/mL, but Starsiak Hawk’s was just 0.25. According to Dr. David Reichman, a fertility specialist at The Ronald O. Perelman and Claudia Cohen Center for Reproductive Medicine at Weill Cornell Medicine (who did not treat Starsiak Hawk), “That number is extremely low for a 35-year-old. That would be more of a normal number for someone who is in their mid-40s.”

Mina Starsiak Is Pregnant! HGTV Star Expecting Second Child After Emotional Infertility Struggles

The news was a blow to Starsiak Hawk. “It feels like your body is failing you and letting you down,” she says.

Moving ahead with in vitro fertilization, the pair had to first sort through the financial maze before they faced an equally complicated regimen of hormones and medications to be administered at home.

“You have all these meds and packs of needles that have different gauges, lengths and thicknesses,” the HGTV star tells PEOPLE. “I couldn’t even figure out how to open one of the packages. It was terrifying.”

HGTV’s Mina Starsiak Says Donor Egg Is Now Her “Only Option” to Carry Another Baby After Failed IVF

Her first round of IVF failed and after getting a second opinion, Starsiak Hawk underwent an IUI (intrauterine insemination) — which ultimately worked, much to her surprise.

“It was a long shot, our Hail Mary, but we said, ‘Sure, what the hell?’ ” she recalls.

Now three months pregnant, the second-time mom-to-be is beyond grateful: “We are incredibly lucky.”

Starsiak Hawk shares her full story in this week’s issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday.

Celebs Go Dating’s Malique Thompson-Dwyer can’t understand his Welsh date say chicken nuggets in hilarious clip – The Sun

CELEBS Go Dating's Malique Thompson-Dwyer is left stumped by his Welsh date's accent in tonight's show.

The Hollyoaks star is unable to understand his date's pronunciation of chicken nuggets, forcing him to try and lip read before giving up all together.

His date asks: "What's your favourite food? Do you like chips, cheese and gravy and stuff like that?"

He replies: "That sounds disgusting, I'm not going to lie."

Undeterred, she continues: "And chicken nuggets on top."

But it all goes wrong at this point, with Malique eventually telling her he doesn't know what they are.


When the penny finally drops, an embarrassed Malique puts his head in his hands.

Malique left viewers cringing last week with his very awkward flirting.

The star, 22, used the same chat up on line on two different women while they were within earshot of each other, much to viewers' horror.

He had already admitted he had a foot fetish to dating coaches Paul Carrick Brunson and Anna Williamson and wasted no time letting a woman called Jakeeme know in the mixer.

"I know who you are," he told her. "You're the one with the nice feet.

"I just want to kiss you, that's all I want to do."

Before she had time to respond, another woman, Danica, moved in for a chat with Malique.




It prompted the actor to say: "I'm not even going to lie, Danica, I searched you up on Instagram."

And he tried the kiss line again, this time with a stunned Jakeeme watching on.

He said: "I just want to kiss you right now. Can I? Can I get a little kiss?"

It proved too much for Jakeeme, who cut her losses and walked away.

The show's official Twitter account was just as shocked, writing: "WE CAN'T BELIEVE WHAT WE'RE SEEING! @officialmal is using the same pickup line a whole 0.3 seconds after using it before."

Viewers found it difficult to watch, with one writing: "He's coming across as predatory! Uncomfortable viewing."

Another posted: "Good grief he is a predator and he wants a woman to take place of his mum Neutral face."

As a third said: "I felt uncomfortable watching him tonight Grimacing face#CelebsGoDating."

He was forced to apologise after getting drunk on the show and acting like a “predator”.

Speaking at the launch of the new series after watching back his antics, he said: "Can I just say I was very drunk … I'm not drunk now, I do love feet. I'm not going to lie."

He went on to say he felt like a “predator” during his first mixer as he honed in on the women he fancied.

While he was "nervous" about appearing on the show, he admitted the drink "helped me out a lot" during the first episode.

Malique and his co-stars, Amy Childs, Amy Hart, James Lock, Dean Gaffney, and Olivia Bentley had to speak to a room of strangers and ask two out on dates during the first mixer.


Malique said: "I was quite nervous coming onto the show.

"But I enjoyed myself a little bit too much.

"I'm getting to the age now where I'm kind of taking over everything myself.

"It would be lovely to come home and have a lovely lady cook me dinner and that. What can I say?

"I think the drink helped me out a lot. I think if I was sober I would've handled it a lot different. But I was in the mood.

"I remember speaking to Lockie before and saying how nervous I am.

"But as soon as I went down I was like, 'Oh my God. I'm a predator! Let's go'."

Despite starring as Prince McQueen on Hollyoaks for three years and appearing in I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!, Malique found it "strange" having so many cameras around on Celebs Go Dating.

He said: "I'd like to say I'm used to having cameras around me but coming on the show and to the agency I actually realised that I'm not.

"It's strange having loads of cameras in my face."
