Gwyneth Paltrow looks worlds away from glam movie star days in makeup-free off-duty outing | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

Gwyneth Paltrow, 49, appears to have moved away from her days as a Hollywood star. The businesswoman sported a pared-down look as she was pictured taking a day out in New York.

The star was dressed in a silk short-sleeve white shirt buttoned to the top. 

She teamed the shirt with a pair of beige khaki three-quarter length shorts. 

To complete the stylishly preppy new look, Gwyneth accessorised with an orange handbag, gold bangles, and orange shades. 

She swept her hair up into a bun and finished off with a pair of white trainers. 

Maisie Smith dances in carefree clip as she hits back at trolls over her ‘thunder thighs’ | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

Maisie Smith, 21, has taken to TikTok in a carefree video of herself dancing in her bikini. The former EastEnders actress stunned fans in her tiny silver string bikini while singing. 

After previously opening up about experiencing “self-hatred” due to what she refers to as her “thunder thighs”, the star made it clear that she was hitting out at trolls in her latest video. 

As she stood by a pool while on holiday, Maisie was lip-syncing to a song in which the lyric “thunder-thighs” is mentioned. 

“I wish somebody would’ve told me that thighs of thunder meant normal human thighs,” she could be seen singing.

Fans praised the Strictly contestant for her “beauty” and “perfection.” 

BBC Weather’s Tomasz Schafernaker causes stir as he advises where to go to escape heatwave | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

BBC Weather meteorologist Tomasz Schafernaker revealed on Twitter that one of the coolest places they could be across the UK right now is Shetland, an island archipelago in the North Sea. He pointed out that, while temperatures have exceeded 40C in some areas in the past few weeks, residents of Lerwick would not have the same problems.

“There’s always Lerwick in #Shetland for some fresher weather,” he suggested playfully, attaching a snapshot of the forecast.

Yesterday’s temperature boasted a top high of no more than 16C – and there were even strong winds and drizzle.

Shetland has been attracting the public’s attention for its spectacular views as well, especially when it appeared on the crime series of the same name.

In last night’s episode, Douglas Henshall, who plays DI Jimmy Perez, made a grisly discovery against one of the region’s beautiful backdrops – a dead body.

Fortunately murders are not as common in the quiet and tranquil beauty spots of Shetland as the TV show might suggest.

However, crime dramas aside, Tomasz made a very serious suggestion that Lerwick was the location to keep cool.

@LouiseCollisArt replied enthusiastically to him, joking: “Googling how to get to Shetland right now!”

Meanwhile @bickhamrm wanted to get in on the action too, chuckling: “Room for one more?!”

Located on a polar archipelago, the city of Longyearbyen is the world’s northernmost permanent settlement – and today’s temperature is just 8C.

However, with less than 3,000 residents, the area comes with challenges – for instance, there are more polar bears than people.

This means that it is currently illegal for anyone to step outside in most areas without carrying a gun for their own protection.

For most of the month of August, the sun will not set due to the extreme polar position of the region, meaning it will still be shining at midnight – but without the intensity of heat experienced in most of the UK.

Anyone wishing to go to Svalbard is required to book an organised tour if they wish to leave the city, to prevent any potentially lethal polar bear incidents.

Otherwise, visitors must apply well in advance for a permit to roam, make the government aware of their exact plans and go armed with a gun.

Meanwhile, on Tomasz’s Twitter page, fans are still debating whether or not to make impromptu trips to Shetland.

@HJelliwell joked that the comparatively chilly high of 16C was a heatwave in itself for the region, but k84_kim hit back bluntly: “No thanks!”

‘My wife is getting old’ David Beckham teases Victoria as she makes unexpected purchase | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

David Beckham, 47, has mocked his wife Victoria, 48, joking that she is “getting old” due to her surprising new purchase. The former Posh Spice bought a light to help her read her books at nighttime. 

Posting a video of Victoria looking decidedly youthful in a bodycon dress, David said: “My wife is getting old…”

Victoria protested: “I’m not getting old!”

David continued: “Someone has just bought a light off Amazon so she can read her book.”

Victoria interjected: “At night!”

“How old are you?” her ex-footballer husband jokingly asked. 

As he posted the video in view of his 74.9million followers, he hinted that he was more interested in how Victoria looked in her skintight dress. 

“@victoriabeckham BODY … I wasn’t really interested in the light …#VBBODY But now u mention it a book with a light on it really ?…I need one,” he penned, alongside a peach emoji, alluding to fashion designer Victoria’s behind.

She wrote in the comments: “Is it just me?!? Can anyone read in the dark David?! by the way… What are you reading??”

“I was going to and I really wanted to, and then a few months down the line, she realised that her atelier couldn’t do it, so then I had to pick another dress,” she said.

“She didn’t say you can’t wear it; I didn’t say I didn’t want to wear it. That’s where it started, and then they ran with that.”

Meanwhile, Brooklyn insisted there was no bad blood at all.  

“I’ve learned they’re always going to try to write stuff like that. They’re always going to try and put people down. But everyone gets along, which is good,” he told Variety

It had been recently reported that Victoria and her husband David Beckham were considering moving to America to be close to Brooklyn and Nicola, particularly if they welcomed what would be the famous couple’s first grandchild. 

The source told Closer: “Vic’s biggest fear is not having a relationship with her first grandchild. 

“She doesn’t really know what’s happened between her and Nicola and dearly wants to make it right before the issue deepens even further.

The source then continued to tell Closer that Victoria “feels like her worst nightmare is coming true” and that her “family is drifting apart”. 

Express.co.uk has reached out to Victoria Beckham, Brooklyn and Nicola’s representatives for comment. 

Vernon Kay insists he was ‘misinterpreted’ as he’s accused of stirring the pot with tweet | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

Vernon Kay, 48, has taken to Twitter in a plea to fans not to misinterpret a comment he made about cyclists in London. In view of his 1.1 million followers, the television presenter wrote a tweet seemingly slamming cyclists for running red lights. 

He wrote sarcastically: “Driving through London. 

“The new law change allowing cyclists to go through a red light is really working….” 

The star’s fans were quick to jump out at him for the comment, before Vernon was forced to speak up for himself. 

@Danbamb said: “I used to like him.”

He said: “Well this got taken out of context, misinterpreted, twisted around, made into something it isn’t very quickly. 

“(To clear the mist, as a casual cyclist, it’s worrying seeing the number of cyclists running red lights, taking risks!) 

“A bike doesn’t have a protective shell!!” 

@TBStevesPix wrote back: “As a road user and a pedestrian it is much more disturbing the number of drivers in 1.5+ ton vehicles speeding, using mobiles and running red lights.

Celebs to reveal anguish of probes into false sex claims | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

The singer and radio DJs were all investigated but cleared as part of Operation Yewtree and one of its subsequent inquiries. The probes were launched 10 years ago in the wake of the Jimmy Savile scandal.

Channel 4’s The Accused: National Treasures On Trial will focus on the impact the process had on the three stars, their careers and reputations.

Video diaries recorded with radio DJs Gambaccini and Fox at the time will offer further insight into their immediate thoughts during the investigations.

The documentary will also reflect on the operation’s wider legacy through their eyes and the lasting impact it has had on the country’s values, attitudes and culture.

Some of those close to the police investigation, along with journalists who were involved in the national conversation surrounding Yewtree, will also feature.

Sir Cliff, 81, won a privacy case against the BBC over its coverage of a South Yorkshire Police raid on his home in Berkshire in 2014, following a child sex assault allegation.

The veteran singer denied the allegations, he was never arrested and in June 2016 prosecutors announced that he would face no charges.

Gambaccini was arrested in October 2013 as part of Operation Yewtree over a claim he sexually assaulted two teenage boys.

The 73-year-old, a regular fixture on the airwaves for decades, spent a year on bail before the case was dropped.

Former Capital FM presenter Fox, 61, was accused of eight counts of indecent assault and two of sexual assault dating back to the late 1980s, involving young fans and colleagues.

He was cleared of all 10 counts at Westminster magistrates’ court in December 2015.

Sir Cliff and Gambaccini have since launched a campaign calling for suspects to have their anonymity protected by law unless they are charged.

Lee McMurray, commissioning editor of factual entertainment at Channel 4, said: “This film offers a unique and fresh take on events that changed us forever, compelling viewers to ask important questions about a watershed moment in recent British history.”

Sir Cliff’s team yesterday released images from his 2023 calendar and – after years of stripping off – the star keeps his shirt on.

The veteran singer beat Harry Styles and Taylor Swift in the 2022 calendar sales charts and has sold more than 250 million records worldwide.

Countdown’s Rachel Riley left baffled over bizarre selfie baby took on her phone | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

In 2019, they got married in Las Vegas and their first daughter, Maven Aria, was born in December of that year.

Then they welcomed prospective artistic genius Noa in November 2021 – and despite not even being a year old yet, she’s already displaying the potential to take a very unusual selfie.

Prior to appearing on Strictly, Rachel was married to Jamie Gilbert, whom she’d met at university, but is adamant that splitting up with him and then dating Pasha cannot be described as an example of “the Strictly curse”.

“Are you calling my babies a curse? That’s not right!” she exclaimed in an interview with The Times, adding that the show had given her “the distance to make the break [from Jamie] that was going to happen anyway”.

Meanwhile last month, Rachel shared another piece of surrealist artwork, which had transformed her and the entire Countdown set into a Lego brick version.

The chuckling star reposted the photo and joked in response: “Don’t think I’ve ever looked better!”

There’s No Reason to be Confused By Timothée Chalamet’s Bone Tweets

If you’re trying to wrap your mind around Timothée Chalamet‘s recent tweets, allow us to explain.

The 26-year-old recently shared a few posts all on the topic of bones—but it’s for a good reason.

“Soft bones,” Timothée tweeted on Aug. 10 before writing, “Crunchy bones” and “Boney bones” in two follow ups posts. And then there was “Boner bone,” too.

So what the heck is he talking about? Well, the Dune actor then shared out the trailer for his upcoming movie, Bones and All directed by Call Me By Your Name‘s Luca Guadagnino.

The film is based on the novel of the same name by Camille DeAngelis and follows two teenagers who happen to be cannibals.

The movie’s logline teases “a story of first love” between characters Maren (Taylor Russell) and Lee (Timothée) who embark on a “1,000-mile odyssey that takes them through the back roads, hidden passages, and trap doors of Ronald Reagan’s America.”

Amanda Seyfried Wishes She Had Intimacy Coordinators When Younger

Seyfried’s comments come at a time when the concept of intimacy coordinators are a hot topic. 

Former Game of Thrones star Sean Bean spoke out against the idea of intimacy coordinators—who are responsible for the safety and well-being of actors during scenes of a sexual nature on set—in an interview with the Sunday Times.

“It would inhibit me more because it’s drawing attention to things,” Bean said. “Somebody saying, ‘Do this, put your hands there, while you touch his thing…'”

Bean pointed to one scene in particular with Snowpiercer co-star Lena Hall, which did not use an intimacy coordinator.

“Often the best work you do, where you’re trying to push the boundaries, and the very nature of it is experimental, gets censored when TV companies or the advertisers say it’s so much,” he said of their scene. “It’s a nice scene, quite surreal, dream-like and abstract.”

Hall later responded, explaining why she didn’t feel the need for the assistance of a coordinator.

“Sean is an awesome actor and made me feel not only comfortable but also like I had a true acting partner in those bizarre scenes,” she explained. “It was us against the world and we were gonna tell that story.”

Travis Barker Says He’s “Impregnating” the Crowd at MGK Show

Travis Barker is back on the road and has some, err, interesting feelings about being on stage tonight. 

The Blink-182 musician isn’t holding back the extent of his excitement about performing with Machine Gun Kelly at his Aug. 10 concert in Missouri. On his Twitter, Travis wrote, “I’m impregnating the entire crowd at the @machinegunkelly show tonight.”

He later added in a follow-up tweet, “With a broken thumb and torn tendons.” 

Travis’ tweet follows a post his pal MGK (also known as Colson Baker) who wrote on his Instagram Story on Aug. 9. Sharing a screenshot of their FaceTime call, Machine Gun Kelly wrote, “Against his doctor’s orders AND with a broken thumb, I convinced @travisbarker to join us for the last couple days.”
