Rihanna fans convinced she is returning to music tonight for the first time in THREE years on new PartyNextDoor album – The Sun

RIHANNA is reportedly set to make her return to the music industry after THREE years away with a guest spot on PartyNextDoor's new album.

The musician will be dropping his new album at midnight on Thursday and fans believe that Rihanna will feature on track number ten, Believe It.

"New partynextdoor and Rihanna tonight?? Let’s gooooooo," shared one excited fan while another added: "RIHANNA IS ON PARTYNEXTDOOR’S ALBUM???? Finally something good is about to happen in 2020."

However, others were dubious as PartyNextDoor shared a minute-long snippet of the track on Snapchat.

"That’s his girlfriend’s vocals not Rihanna’s," suggested one fan while another claimed that he was playing a demo version and Rihanna was on the final track.

The Sun Online has contacted reps for Rihanna for comment.




Rihanna released her last album ANTI in 2016 and fans have been eagerly anticipating new music ever since; in 2017 she collaborated with DJ Khaled on a single Wild Thoughts.

The 32-year-old has been focusing on her fashion and make-up businesses, and in February she celebrated her birthday in raucous style as she toasted to another year with her family and friend in Mexico.

According to reports, the Fenty designer enjoyed a candlelight dinner with pals before a mariachi band entertained her guests and they downed tequila shots.

However, the Bajan beauty mogul hasn't posted any videos or images from the fun-filled trip yet, which comes shortly after her reported breakup from billionaire boyfriend Hassan Jameel.


The Grammy winner was notoriously private about their relationship, with the two making very few public appearances together over the course of their romance.

And in the wake of their split, speculation began to mount that the designer was dating Fashion Killa rapper A$AP Rocky.

However, sources have told E! News that the musical pair aren't in a relationship but rather "hanging out" and "having fun".

Scarlett Moffatt admits she rang the Samaritans after cruel trolls left her in a ‘dark place’ by targeting her looks – The Sun

SCARLETT Moffatt has revealed she rang the Samaritans after cruel trolls left her in a "dark place" by attacking her looks.

In an open and honest interview with Grazia magazine, the 30-year-old would use a fake name so she could rant to a stranger as she struggled to cope with life in the public eye.

She reached her lowest in 2017 when she released a fitness DVD, which she calls "the biggest regret of my life".

The star suffered horrendous backlash online for transforming her look – but Scarlett says she wasn't paid a penny because she failed to lose enough weight.

"I was at the point where I wanted to stop everything, quit TV, delete social media and move to a country where no one could have an opinion on me.

"When it was really bad, I would ring the Samaritans, give a fake name and rant for 15 minutes. Talking to someone who didn’t know me or judge me, helped."


YOU'RE NOT ALONE

EVERY 90 minutes in the UK a life is lost to suicide.

It doesn't discriminate, touching the lives of people in every corner of society – from the homeless and unemployed to builders and doctors, reality stars and footballers.

It's the biggest killer of people under the age of 35, more deadly than cancer and car crashes.

And men are three times more likely to take their own life than women.

Yet it's rarely spoken of, a taboo that threatens to continue its deadly rampage unless we all stop and take notice, now.

That is why The Sun launched the You're Not Alone campaign.

The aim is that by sharing practical advice, raising awareness and breaking down the barriers people face when talking about their mental health, we can all do our bit to help save lives.

Let's all vow to ask for help when we need it, and listen out for others… You're Not Alone.

If you, or anyone you know, needs help dealing with mental health problems, the following organisations provide support:

  • CALM, www.thecalmzone.net, 0800 585 858
  • Heads Together, www.headstogether.org.uk
  • Mind, www.mind.org.uk, 0300 123 3393
  • Papyrus, www.papyrus-uk.org, 0800 068 41 41
  • Samaritans, www.samaritans.org, 116 123

She hid how she was feeling about the cruel abuse online from her family, but eventually broke down in front of her mum.

Scarlett ended up seeing a therapist for a year and says she has "coping mechanisms" if she slips into that dark place again.

But in a frank admission, the reality TV star referenced the late Caroline Flack who took her own life.

She said: "Despite everything that’s happened since Caroline Flack’s passing, it’s clear that sadly nothing is going to change anytime soon.

"The more we open up, the more we can hopefully put an end to trolling once and for all. I feel lucky it didn’t have tragic consequences for me because it truly could have."

Sharing a beautiful snap from her magazine photoshoot on Instagram, Scarlett told her fans: "This is the most honest interview I have done to date & I think a lot of you may be quite shocked as to just how honest.

"As we know with how crazy the world is right now, life is too short. It’s important to be kind & happy.

"I’ve been really honest with my experience of trolls, how I regret doing things like before and after pictures & how I’m owning my body for the first time in a very long time.

"Also can’t believe I’m actually in @graziauk if only I could tell my 13 year old self this is how life would work out."

Stacey Solomon giggles as she films snoozing Joe Swash on the sofa and pokes fun at his ‘Mother Theresa’ bandage – The Sun

STACEY Solomon has had a laugh at the expense of her injured husband Joe Swash saying his head bandage makes him looks like Mother Theresa.

The Loose Women panellist recorded a video of herself poking fun at Joe as he crashed out on the couch after a day of festivities for her son's 12th birthday.

"I think it's fair to say it's all been a bit much for Mother Theresa today," Stacey giggled as she panned the camera across to a sleeping Joe.

Stacey, 30, has said Joe's head bandage makes him look like a nun since he was forced to start wearing it after a horrific accident while rehearsing for Dancing on Ice.

Joe, 38, was almost ruled out of continuing to compete on the ice skating competition show after he fell and hit his head during rehearsals.

But the injury did not stop the former EastEnders star from going on to win the 2020 series with partner Alex Murphy.




Joe was so tuckered on Saturday afternoon after they hosted an impromptu birthday barbecue for Stacey's 12-year-old son Zach.

The couple invited some family and friends over to their house in Essex for the "freezing cold" barbecue.

Stacey had to come up with alternative plans to celebrate Zach's birthday after their trip to Butling's was cancelled due to the coronavirus and Prime Minister Boris Johnson asked people to cancel non-essential travel.

The family braved the cold because "that what's Zach’s asked for for his birthday".

Stacey went all out to make sure Zach had a great birthday at home, including recruiting his brothers Leighton, 9, and Rex, 10 months to get up early and help with preparations.

Massive balloons in the shape of video game consoles wished the almost teen a happy birthday, while Stacey went to the effort of separating the orange and purple Smarties, because they were Zach's favourites.

Stacey was also busy tidying the house ahead of the arrival of some more family members trying to vacuuming her rug, but baby Rex kept trying to climb on it.

"Getting ready for some family to come over, and quickly discovering Hoover lines and 10 month olds do not go well together," she wrote on her Instagram story.

Meanwhile, Stacey has been putting plans in place ahead of home-schooling her two eldest sons.

She took to Instagram to reveal she was preparing for the coming weeks when her boys would be out of school amid the ongoing worldwide COVID-19 pandemic.

“Going to make a template of a timetable so the boys have a bit of structure,” she shared.

“Not starting until 10am and the pink squares are mum time,” she added, with laughing emojis.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson confirmed on Wednesday that Britain’s schools would be ordered to close from Friday with all exams cancelled in the war on coronavirus.

The shutdown, until summer at the earliest, is the Government’s most drastic move yet to slow down the pandemic.

Doctor's plea as she claims capital's ITU beds are 'nearing capacity'

‘If you care about humanity get the prime minister to act!’ Doctor’s impassioned plea for government to enforce a London lockdown now as she claims the capital’s ITU beds are ‘nearing capacity’

  • Dr Rachel Clarke, a palliative care doctor, made the plea to Matt Hancock
  • Her comments come after Mr Hancock said on Question Time ‘shared humanity’ would defeat coronavirus
  • The number of diagnosed coronavirus patients in the UK has risen to 3,269 
  • A  total of 173 people died in the UK to date with 10,028 dying worldwide
  • Letters are being sent to more than 65,000 retired doctors and nurses urging them to return to work 
  • Coronavirus symptoms: what are they and should you see a doctor?

A palliative care doctor has issued an impassioned plea to the Health Secretary, Matt Hancock after claiming the capital’s ITU beds are nearing capacity.

Dr. Rachel Clarke, an Oxfordshire based doctor and author, took to Twitter to call on Mr Hancock to intercede and ask Boris Johnson to shut London’s pubs down.  

‘Matt, we won’t pull through without action. We need pubs, clubs & bars to be closed immediately. London’s ITU beds are nearing capacity. London needs lockdown – now.  

‘If you care about humanity, then please – please – get the prime minister to act.

I am literally begging you,’ she tweeted.’ 

Dr Clarke’s comments come after Mr Hancock appeared on Question Time last night and said, ‘It is because we are all human that we are susceptible to coronavirus – and it is our shared humanity that means we will pull together to defeat it.’  

Dr Rachel Clarke, a pallative care doctor, made the plea to Matt Hancock on Twitter

An NHS source told MailOnline that while it is correct that ITU beds in London are nearing capacity, Dr Clarke’s tweet is taken out of context as more normal wards are freed up for intense care beds as more non-emergency operations are cancelled.

MailOnline has contacted NHS England and is awaiting comment. 

Dr Clarke’s warning comes as medical professionals around the world took to social media to urge people to do more to help them in their fight against coronavirus by staying at home.

Doctors and nurses from around the world have joined forces to promote a Stay Safe online campaign. 

An NHS source told MailOnline that while it is correct that ITU beds in London are nearing capacity, Dr Clarke’s tweet is taken out of context as more normal wards are freed up for intense care beds as more non-emergency operations are cancelled

The plea from health professionals for others to curb outdoor activities came as many revelers continued to visit pubs and restaurants this week with packed scenes in some cities on St. Patrick’s Day. 

London faces plunging deeper into lockdown – and potentially with just 12 hours’ notice – amid fears the ‘superspreader city’ is driving the UK’s coronavirus outbreak. 

Dozens of social media users have been quick to point out that many are continuing to ignore government advice and putting each other at risk.

One user, @JeremiahHyde, wrote: ‘Shocking isn’t it!? Some London pubs are packed. Dangerous irresponsible idiocy.’

Drinkers were also seen out and about in Leeds, although in smaller numbers compared to previous nights.

Taking to TikTok, two nurses clad in surgical gowns, masks and gloves, took it in turns to hold up paper signs to the camera pleading with the public to show responsibility.

‘We also family but can’t stay home,’ one message read, followed by, ‘We are not on vacation,’ and ‘Be responsible stay home because I can’t.’ 

Twitter user Sunshine Moon shared a picture of her and a colleague at a hospital in Germany.

She wrote on Twitter: ‘We as nurses in all categories and doctors all over the world work under high pressure.

‘Some of us even stay in nursing homes and hospitals. Heroes don’t wear a cape these days.

‘God bless you and stay healthy.’

Chris Brereton who’s fiancee is a nurse in the North West also urged members of the public not to be selfish.

‘My exhausted fiancee, a f***ing heroine, has just got in from her hospital shift. One three-minute chat with her would convince anyone still going to pubs etc that their actions are the stupidest and most ludicrously selfish thing they will ever do in their lifetime. Get indoors,’ he posted on Twitter. 

Another team of medics at a Turkish hospital posed with their handmade signs as part of the Stay Safe online campaign.

Meanwhile another team of doctors held their hands in a triangle shape – while one person held up the written sign telling people to ‘please stay home’.

The government has said all hospitals will be provided with enough ventilators and protective clothing.

Boris Johnson said in a conference Thursday: ‘At the moment the disease is proceeding in a way that does not seem, yet, to be responding to our interventions’ – he urged people to follow the advice to not go out in public or travel unless they cannot avoid it

Meanwhile it has emerged that letters are being sent to more than 65,000 retired doctors and nurses in England and Wales asking them to return to work amid the deepening crisis to boost frontline services.  

Anyone who quit or retired in the past three years is being urged by ministers to return to help tackle coronavirus.

Emails, which will go out this morning, echo Lord Kitchener’s Your Country Needs You recruitment poster from the First World War. Staff will be allowed to re-register immediately with either the General Medical Council, the doctors’ professional watchdog, or the Nursing and Midwifery Council, its equivalent for nurses.

They will complete a brief online survey on their experience and skills and be offered roles in hospitals, GP surgeries, social care services and the NHS 111 helpline.

Several hotel chains are in talks with the Government about offering up extra bed space to help hospitals. They include Best Western, which has 270 properties across the UK and has already promised to give up 15,000 bedrooms, 90 per cent of its total.

NHS officials have not put a figure on the number of former doctors and nurses they expect to bring back but last week, Health Secretary Matt Hancock said he hoped to ‘get our hands on as many as possible’.

All returning staff will be paid fully according to the amount of time they can work and will be given brief training and induction. The NHS is also allowing some of the most experienced trainee doctors and nurses to join the front line.

HOW MANY NEW CASES HAVE EUROPEAN COUNTRIES DIAGNOSED IN THE PAST WEEK? 

Between March 12 and March 18, the 12 hardest-hit countries in Europe diagnosed more than 53,000 new cases of the coronavirus between them. This is how they divided up:

Those in the final year of their degrees will be allowed to take up paid roles without having to pass their final set of exams.

Mr Hancock said: ‘To further boost the ranks of our NHS, we are now turning to people who have recently left the healthcare professions who can bring their experience and expertise to our health system.

‘They can play a crucial role in maximising our capacity to fight this outbreak – and wherever they can help, they will be hugely welcomed. This continues to be a huge national effort to protect lives and protect our NHS, and I urge everyone to continue following the latest medical advice.’ 

The Nursing and Midwifery Council is sending emails today to 50,000 nurses whose registration has lapsed in the past three years, while the General Medical Council will do the same for 15,500 doctors.

Professor Stephen Powis, NHS national medical director, said: ‘By offering to return to the NHS now, these thousands of well qualified and compassionate people will make more of a difference than ever before – not just to patients, but to colleagues and the wider community.’

Ruth May, chief nursing officer for England, said: ‘As the health service gears up to deal with the greatest global health threat in its history, my message to former colleagues is: Your NHS Needs You.’ The Government hopes to sign up thousands of the public as NHS volunteers to help fetch medicines, feed patients and carry out admin.

Chief Medical Officer Professor Chris Whitty warned last night that London hospitals would soon be under severe pressure as measures such as social distancing and school closures intended ‘to pull down the peak’ of cases would take time to have an effect. ‘Even if everybody does all the things we hope they will do, the numbers will continue to go up over the next two weeks,’ he said.

‘I stayed at work for you you stay at home for us,’ medical professionals from Abbot Hospital, Minnesota joined a campaign to get people to stay indoors

The UK’s coronavirus outbreak is one of the fastest escalating epidemics in Europe, official statistics have revealed.

A total of 173 people have died in the UK to date, with 10,028 dying worldwide.

The number of diagnosed coronavirus patients in the UK has risen to 3,269. 

676 people were diagnosed with the virus yesterday, more than in Switzerland, the Netherlands, Belgium, Norway, Sweden, Austria or Denmark.

This was 35 per cent more than the previous day, when there were 407 cases, and meant the total toll had almost doubled in two days from 1,523 to 2,626. Thursday saw a surge of another 603 confirmed patients to a total of 3,269.

Only Italy, Spain, France and Germany are seeing faster growth but all have significantly higher numbers of cases – each with at least 7,000 cases each.

Switzerland, which has a comparable number of patients to the UK, saw just 450 new cases between Tuesday and Thursday whereas Britain has had 1,083.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson this week acknowledged the epidemic was entering its ‘fast growth phase’ and scientists have said Britain and other countries are just weeks behind Italy, which is in the grip of the worst outbreak outside of China.

Speaking in a conference on Monday Mr Johnson said the UK was approaching the ‘fast growth part of the upward curve’ in the number of cases.

‘Without drastic action, cases could double every five or six days,’ he said.

In his national address today Mr Johnson said: ‘At the moment the disease is proceeding in a way that does not seem, yet, to be responding to our interventions.

‘I believe that a combination of the measures that we’re asking the public to take and better testing… will enable us to get on top of it within the next 12 weeks and turn the tide.

‘I cannot stand here and tell you that we will be on the downward slope [by then] – it’s possible but I simply cant say that that’s for certain.

‘We don’t know where we are and we don’t know how long this thing will go on for but what I can say is that this is going to be finite.

‘We will turn the tide and I can see how to do it within the next 12 weeks.’

Woman, 33, reveals she keeps a nine-month-old PUMA as a pet

Woman who keeps a nine-month-old PUMA as a pet reveals the big cat was ‘scared’ of her tiny Pomeranian when it first moved in – but now they’re ‘best friends’

  • Natalia Korotova, 33, from Perm Krai, Russia, is proud owner of London the puma
  • Admitted she got the big cat as a cub but he has since grown extremely large
  • Says London is ‘not aggressive’ and is good friends with her pet Pomeranian Bro

Dogs may be man’s best friend, but this brave pet owner has chosen to adopt a dangerous predator as her new companion. 

Natalia Korotova, 33, from Perm Krai in Russia, is the proud owner of London, a nine-month-old puma.

Footage captured by Natalia shows the big cat behaving almost like a dog around the house and in the car.

Despite being not much old than a kitten, London is already incredibly large and a big presence in her home – though it was scared of her tiny Pomeranian when it first moved in.

Natalia Korotova, 33, from Perm Krai in Russia, is the proud owner of London, a nine-month-old puma

Natalia said: ‘A strong wish to have a big cat came to me a couple of years ago, but we lived then in a flat and I understood it would be a great problem, as a big animal requires a lot of space and its own territory outside.

‘So while our house was refurbished I had a lot of time to make a choice.’

Natalia also has three-year-old Pomeranian Bro – but when it comes to him sharing the house with a puma, thankfully they are good friends.

‘Bro was really happy to see London at home,’ Natalia explained.

Natalia also has a three-year-old dog called Bro – but when it comes to him sharing the house with a puma, thankfully they are good friends


When she first got London, Natalia told how he was relatively small – but he has since grown much bigger

London, pictured as a cub, has since outgrown this wicker basket and is now a dominant presence in the home

‘We even had to separate them first days as the dog was very insisting with his love, and London got frightened (sic).

‘They made friends pretty fast and started to do everything together, even ate from the one plate, but London was growing really fast and from a small kitten he turned to a huge cat.

‘Now we often have to separate them again. London is not aggressive at all – he just wants to play, but looks like he is too big for Bro now.’ 

Natalia said London is not aggressive and just wants to play. Pictured together in the snow in Russia

In video footage shared by Natalia on her Instagram page @london_big_cat, the puma can be seen rolling around with Bro on the lawn, playfully mauling at the furry pup.

Another amusing clip shows London chasing and pawing at a mop as Natalia tries to clean her floor.

And one moment shows Natalia puckering up to plant a kiss on London’s head – though the puma seems distracted by what’s going on around them. 

Paws for a cuddle: Natalia admitted London grew really fast and from a small kitten he turned into to a huge cat

London demonstrates his feline natural instincts in another video, which shows him sharpening his claws on a tree and tearing a loo roll to shreds.  

He’s also large enough to comfortably eat his dinner from a bowl on the countertop, rather than on the floor.

But despite his intimidating size, he still curls up in bed at night with his best pal Bro.

Fiona Apple Says She Quit Cocaine After an 'Excruciating' Night with Quentin Tarantino

The singer also details alleged emotional abuse by her ex Paul Thomas Anderson.

Fiona Apple says she stopped doing cocaine after "one excruciating night" with Quentin Tarantino.

During an in-depth interview with The New Yorker, the singer/songwriter said she was put off by the drug after listening to her then-boyfriend Paul Thomas Anderson and the "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" director "brag" throughout the evening while hanging out at Tarantino’s house.

"Every addict should just get locked in a private movie theater with Q.T. and P.T.A. on coke, and they’ll never want to do it again," the 42-year-old quipped.

She detailed other drug abuse during her romance with Anderson, which she called "painful and chaotic." They took part in booze, pot and ecstasy, on top of cocaine.

And she claimed the "Boogie Nights" director was "coldly critical" and "contemptuous" during their time together.

"At parties, he’d hiss harsh words in her ear, calling her a bad partner, while behaving sweetly on the surface; she’d tear up, which, she thinks, made her look unstable to strangers," wrote the profile’s author, Emily Nussbaum.

The Grammy winner also alleged Anderson was rude to her parents at a dinner party, threw a chair across a room after the 1998 Oscars and shoved her out of a car once.

TooFab has reached out to Anderson for comment. The director declined The New Yorker’s request for comment through a representative.

Although the "Criminal" hitmaker said she didn’t consider herself an addict, she also quit alcohol after realizing she was taking sips of vodka whenever she passed the refrigerator during one period of her life.

Her father was an alcoholic, but has been sober for decades, according to Apple.

She also took prescription psychopharmaceuticals for years after being diagnosed with complex developmental post-traumatic stress disorder.

But in December, she eventually weaned herself off any antipsychotic drug after severe mood swings caused her to get an MRI to rule out a pituitary tumour.

Farrah Abraham Said She 'Loves Coronavirus Season' & Even Her Daughter Is Baffled

Farrah Abraham is no stranger to a controversial Instagram video, but her latest video is truly coming across as tone-deaf. Recently, the 28-year-old has been making quite a few videos about the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. While people all over the world are dying from the virus, people are disgusted that Abraham seems to be making light of the dire situation.

On March 16, 2020, Abraham took to her Instagram page to share some tips about homeschooling children. Many cities have closed all schools for the next couple of weeks in order to try to flatten the Coronavirus curve. In layman’s terms, this means attempting to reduce the number of people who get sick from the virus so that we can avoid overwhelming out health care system.

Farrah Abraham gives advice about how she homeschools her daughter

Abraham hopped on Instagram to share some tips that she uses with her daughter, Sophia. Since the 11-year-old has been homeschooled for the past couple of years, Abraham felt it prudent to share what she has learned with other parents. She gave tips like using Alexa to set timers for time management skills and isolating to different parts of the house when she and her daughter start getting on each other’s nerves.

The ‘Teen Mom’ alum says she kinds loves Coronavirus season

This would have been a relatively mild video for Abraham, but one thing she said quickly rubbed both fans and critics the wrong way. “Everything can be done online and I’m so excited about that because I’m such a homebody and I kinda love Coronavirus season,” Abraham revealed to her 2 million Instagram followers. She continued on to say that the exception to loving Coronavirus was her inability to find eggs at three grocery stores to use in a St. Patrick’s Day cake that Sophia was planning to make.

Instagram users call the former reality TV star out

Immediately, Instagram users began to flood Abraham’s video with comments. “Why do you keep saying you love Coronavirus season like it’s spring, summer, fall, or winter?! You seriously need a reality check,” one person wrote. “You love coronavirus season?? Wtf😂😂” another person questioned. “I was following did you said you were excited about coronavirus season. Some of us are losing jobs because of this. This is not a season,” one person reminded Abraham.

Other people even pointed out that even Abraham’s daughter seemed to be puzzled by the statement. At the moment of the Instagram video when Abraham says she “kinda loves Coronavirus season,” Sophia’s face morphs into a confused frown. “Sophia’s face was like, HUH??” one person wrote in the comment section.

The impact of the 2020 Coronavirus

Other Instagram users tried to educate Abraham, saying she had their support until she said that. “I was with you till you said you like Coronavirus season. Hun this isn’t like flu season this is an emergency outbreak. Although I get your point of the video you got to watch what you say a little more, people are passing away. That’s not to say people don’t also pass away from the flu but you NEVER like illness,” one fan shared.

We hope that this is a case of Abraham just saying something without thinking. Though she’s been known to say and do outlandish things for media attention, we hope this isn’t one of those times. Hopefully, by staying educated about how serious this virus is, we can all do our part to help combat it.

Ferne McCann reveals she was ‘robbed’ of her ideal pregnancy by acid thug ex Arthur Collins – The Sun

FERNE McCann has revealed she was 'robbed' of her ideal pregnancy by acid thug ex Arthur Collins.

The former Towie star has bravely opened up about her stressful pregnancy to Giovanna Fletcher's Podcast.

Ferne has talked about her heartbreaking pregnancy when her ex Arthur was jailed for a brutal acid attack.

She said: "My whole first experience of a pregnancy and everything you think an ideal pregnancy would be, was robbed from me."

She explained: "I just felt like it felt right and well thank God I was pregnant because if I wasn’t, I wouldn’t be as happy as I am today and smiling and loving life as much as I do, even though she’s going through the terrible twos.

"Being pregnant and having a trauma which is what I went through."


Giovanna quizzed her on the trauma that followed and if Arthur knew she was pregnant?

Ferne said: "Yeah, yeah. I mean there was so much that went on in the press and it’s still a very very – I don’t particularly talk about it, I’m ok to talk about.

"I’m happy to talk about it to a certain degree erm, but yeah he knew and then that happened and then it was my whole first experience of a pregnancy and everything you think an ideal pregnancy would be, was robbed from me.

"However when you separate the two, my personal life and what happened, you just look at my pregnancy as me just being pregnant, it was actually a wonderful, pretty smooth pregnancy. I really loved it."

She added: "I almost lived life to the fullest. I was like I’m not going to let this pregnancy or this situation control me anymore."

Ferne's world fell apart when it was revealed Arthur had been involved in an acid attack.

Collins, then 25, was caged for 20 years in December 2017.

He carried out an acid attack on a group of revellers at an East London nightclub which left 22 injured.

Olga Kurylenko confirms she has coronavirus

Bond girl Olga Kurylenko has coronavirus: Actress who starred alongside Daniel Craig in Quantum of Solace reveals she is in quarantine at home

  • Actress Olga Kurylenko revealed her positive test for the new coronavirus in an Instagram post last night
  • The 40-year-old said she had been ‘ill for almost a week’ with fever and fatigue and was now locked in at home
  • The Soviet-born French national played Bolivian secret agent Camille Montes in 2008’s Quantum of Solace
  • Coronavirus symptoms: what are they and should you see a doctor?

Former Bond girl Olga Kurylenko has tested positive for coronavirus, she revealed last night. 

The 40-year-old, who played Camille Montes in 2008’s Quantum of Solace, said she was diagnosed after feeling ‘ill for almost a week’ with fever and fatigue. 

She is now facing days in isolation and posted a picture of her locked window on Instagram last night as she revealed she was ‘locked up at home’.  

The Soviet-born actress added: ‘Fever and fatigue are my main symptoms. Take care of yourself and do take this seriously!’ 

Bond girl Olga Kurylenko – who starred opposite Daniel Craig in Quantum of Solace (pictured) – has tested positive for coronavirus 

The actress (pictured in a photo she shared with her social media followers) said she was taking paracetamol and eating garlic 


The 40-year-old, who played Camille Montes in 2008’s Quantum of Solace, said she was diagnosed after feeling ‘ill for almost a week’ with fever and fatigue. She also posted a picture of her balcony as seen through a locked window 

Olga starred opposite Daniel Craig in Quantum of Solace as Bolivian secret agent Camille Montes, a role for which she did dialect training.  

The Death Of Stalin actress, who was born in Soviet-era Ukraine but is now a French citizen, wrote her Instagram caption in both English and the Cyrillic alphabet.

Russian reports say she has lived in London for around a decade, but she did not say where she is undergoing quarantine. 

She said: ‘To bring down the temperature, they said to take Paracetamol, which I do. That’s all. Nothing more to do.

‘Of course, I still take vitamins for myself like that. And I eat garlic, just for the immune system.

‘I drink water. Squeeze lemons in water. That’s all.’

Kurylenko’s diagnosis comes days after Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson became the first major Hollywood celebrities to contract the virus.

The couple were taken to hospital in Australia where Hanks had been filming an Elvis Presley movie directed by Baz Luhrmann. 

Anyone who had come into contact with the couple during their stay in Australia was ordered into quarantine.   

Kurylenko has recently finished shooting her upcoming movie The Bay Of Silence, according to The Hollywood Reporter. 

It is not yet clear if anyone else will need to be quarantined as a result of her positive test. 

The mother-of-one originally rose to fame as a model after being discovered in Moscow at the age 13. 

Since her turn as a Bond girl, she has appeared in films including Oblivion, The Water Diviner and The Room. She also appeared in 2018’s Johnny English Strikes Again, part of the series which parodies the Bond films.  

Kurylenko (pictured in another social media post) is now facing days in isolation and revealed she was ‘locked up at home’ 


Bond girl Olga Kurylenko (pictured left, and right during Paris Fashion Week in 2018) confirmed she had tested positive for the new coronavirus 

Kurylenko has a number of releases in the offing, including a French Netflix movie called Sentinelle that is in post-production and due out this August.

She is also slated to appear in a Chinese action thriller called The Hunting, originally called Fox Hunt.

The Hunting, which revolves around the Chinese government’s attempt to capture white collar criminals who skip the country, was filmed in Europe last year. 

Meanwhile the upcoming installment in the James Bond franchise, No Time To Die, has had its release date bumped from April to November because of coronavirus.

Billie Eilish’s title song has already been released and the star Daniel Craig has already covered magazines to promote the movie.  

Everything you need to know about coronavirus

By Natalie Rahhal, Acting US Health Editor for DailyMail.com  

HOW DANGEROUS IS CORONAVIRUS?

About 14 percent of people who contract the Covid-19 coronavirus are taken to hospital – with severe symptoms including breathing problems and pneumonia. About 5 per cent need intensive care.

But the majority who get the virus suffer nothing more than a cough and may never know they are infected.

So far, some 51,000 people around the world have already recovered from coronavirus – and that just includes the numbers who received a diagnosis. 

HOW MANY PEOPLE DIE?

Officially, the death rate so far has been just over three percent. But experts believe the true mortality rate is probably between one and two percent. This is because most mild cases have not been picked up by doctors or reflected in the official numbers – so the death rate is inflated. 

HOW DOES THIS COMPARE WITH OTHER DISEASES?

Seasonal flu kills roughly 0.1 percent of people. So Covid-19 is between 10 and 20 times more fatal.

But it is far less dangerous than SARS – the virus that ripped across China in 2003 – which killed 10 percent of patients.

BUT DOESN’T CORONAVIRUS SPREAD MORE EASILY?

Yes, but not dramatically. The best estimates suggest every person with Covid-19 passes it on to 2.6 people, on average. For flu that number is 1.5. 

CAN IT BE SPREAD WITHOUT SYMPTOMS?

Initially scientists feared carriers who had no symptoms could pass it on. That is now in doubt.

What is likely, however, is those who have mild symptoms are putting it down to a cold and going about their normal lives – which puts others at risk.

HOW LONG IS IT BEFORE SYMPTOMS APPEAR?

Again, unclear. Initially scientists said this could take up to two weeks.

But recent evidence suggests the incubation period could be as long as a month – particularly among children.

The average, however, is much shorter. A Chinese study said the average period of symptom onset was 5.4 days for adults and 6.5 for children. 

WHO IS AT RISK?

The virus can affect anyone – with a study of the first 41 infected people revealing two thirds did not suffer from any pre-existing condition. But the middle-aged are most likely to get it – 78 percent of those infected in China have been aged 30 to 69.

WHAT ABOUT THE OLD?

Only 3 percent of people infected so far have been over 80 – but if they get it they are more vulnerable. Analysis of 72,000 cases in China suggests for over-80s the death rate is 15 percent. For those in their 70s the death rate is 8 percent and for those in their 60s, 4 percent.

WHO ELSE IS VULNERABLE?

Those with other conditions – such as diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure and kidney problems – are likely to suffer severe complications if they become infected.

WHAT ABOUT CHILDREN?

Children seem to be low-risk. Less than 1 percent of the Chinese cases have been under the age of ten – and if children do get the virus it’s often a mild form.

They do, however, retain the virus for longer than adults.

A study last week found the virus was still present in the stools of some children for a month after they contracted it.

DOES GENDER MATTER?

Men are marginally more likely to get the virus than women. It is not clear why this is.

HOW DO DOCTORS TEST FOR COVID-19?

Anyone who has symptoms –particularly if they have travelled to an at-risk area – are told to call ahead to their health care provider, local emergency department or clinics.

This way, health care providers can be prepared, wearing masks, gloves and other personal protective equipment when they meet the possible patient and escort them to isolated areas of the facility.

They are tested using a cheek swab which is sent off for analysis at one of 12 Public Health England labs, a process that takes between 24 and 48 hours. Any positive test is double-checked at the main PHE lab in Colindale.

WHAT TREATMENT DO PATIENTS GET?

There is little doctors can do to tackle the virus, but they can treat the symptoms – such as fever and respiratory problems. Antivirals and antibiotics are also used, mainly to keep secondary problems at bay.

In the most serious cases patients are put on life-support equipment.

There are several clinical trials for potential coronavirus treatments ongoing worldwide, including one in Nebraska, where at least 13 patients are in quarantine, including two in biocontainment units. 

WHAT ABOUT A VACCINE?

Even though the Wuhan virus appeared only a few weeks ago, 20 teams around the world are already manufacturing vaccines.

Chinese authorities provided the DNA code for the virus early on in the outbreak, enabling scientists to get to work straight away.

At least 30 companies and research institutions in the US are racing to make a vaccine.

Last week, one of these companies, Moderna, shipped its candidate vaccine to the US, signalling the shot was ready to begin clinical trials.

Even so, US health authorities say it will likely be upwards of a year before a vaccine is actually ready.

Caitlyn Jenner jokes she still has a penis as she appears on All Round to Mrs Brown’s – The Sun

BRENDAN O’Carroll and Caitlyn Jenner have a kitchen table natter like no other in the news series of All Round to Mrs Brown’s.

She's guest of honour when the BBC1 show returns on March 21, and the Irish matriarch spared no time – and no blushes – with the saucy chat.

Former athlete Caitlyn says she was blessed to have parented ten children thanks to having “Olympic swimmers”, before giving Mrs Brown a high five to celebrate the achievement.

Mrs Brown then dry humps the table and comments on how difficult it is to have so many kids before saying: “Thank God you got rid of it.”

The audience is left in shocked hysterics on the outrageous remark, but instead of being appalled Caitlyn merely replies: “I didn’t actually get rid of it, I just retired it.”

That led into talk of Cait’s best-known step-daughter and rapper husband Kanye West.

Mrs Brown said: “Tell me about Kim Kardashian and that big arse, what’s his name again – Kanye?”

But Caitlyn clearly wasn’t offended by her time on the show, and ends up having a dance with Mrs Brown in the local pub.

Actor and former Dancing on Ice judge John Barrowman is also a guest on the same episode, which kicks off the fourth series.

And he maintains the show’s family theme by bringing his parents along with him.
