James May speaks out as viewers spot ‘ghost’ in his Italy travel series | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

James May, 59, has addressed viewers’ concerns after some pointed out the appearance of a “ghost” during episode three of his brand new travel series. Better known as part of the Top Gear trio, James embarked on the new project by himself as he set out to explore Italy.

However, fans have since taken to Twitter to express their disbelief after spotting a “ghost” walking in some of the latest episode’s frames.

Meanwhile, James tried to find a rational explanation to the seemingly paranormal appearances as he thanked fans for their concern.

He tweeted: “My thanks to everyone who has pointed out the ‘ghost’ in ep3 of my new Italy series.

“Nobody saw it at the time, so it’s either a real ghost or (more likely but also more boring) just a bit of digital file corruption.”

In Our Man In Italy, James aims to unveil the cultural and culinary secrets of Italy, kicking off the trip with Sicily.

During the visit, James enjoyed Mussomeli, a Sicilian town that is home to just a few thousand people.

He also headed off to volcano Etna to get a little closer to the magnificent natural formation.

He said: “I have to say it is looking a bit smokey.”

Once at the top, James said: “Silent, sleeping but we know despite the reassurances of the scientist, that could explode with an enormous crash.”

James even got to play a traditional Sicilian instrument which is similar to the bagpipes.

The TV star wore a costume and joined musicians in the town square to play for local people.

In the trailer, James joked: “I hope that was as enjoyable to you to watch as it was for me to experience. But I bet it wasn’t.”

Kodak Black Arrested on Felony Drug Charges

Kodak Black has been arrested and charged with felony drug trafficking and possession.

On July 15, the Florida Highway Patrol pulled over the rapper, who was driving a purple Dodge Durango with windows tints that appeared darker than the legal limit, police said in a news release, according to the Associated Press. Detecting a marijuana smell, the cops searched the SUV and found a small clear bag with 31 Oxycodone tablets and almost $75,000 in cash. The agency also said in his press release that record checks revealed that Black’s vehicle tag and driver’s license were both expired.

The 25-year-old, whose real name is Bill Kapri, was then arrested and booked in jail on charges of trafficking in 14 to 25 grams of Oxycodone, an addictive opioid drug and painkiller, and with possession of a controlled substance without a prescription, which are both felonies, according to court records obtained by E! News.

The TikTok star, 18, and Travis Barker‘s son, 18, looked absolutely smitten as they enjoyed a recent night out with their close friends.

Ashanti Is Here to Remind You to Celebrate the Beauty of Unique Names

Ashanti remembers her childhood like it was yesterday.

Long before performing massive hits like “Foolish” and “Rock Wit U” for thousands of fans, the 41-year-old was just a young girl at school who didn’t always feel like she fit in.

“Growing up having a very unique name, there were moments,” Ashanti exclusively shared with E! News. “I remember there was circle time and the teacher would call out names. The kids would go, ‘Why doesn’t her name sound like this or that?'”

The experiences inspired Ashanti to write her very first children’s book My Name Is A Story, an empowering tale about a girl who learns to love her unique name. It’s a journey Ashanti knows all too well. 

“My name originates in Ghana,” she explained. “When you travel outside of the country, sometimes the women are considered low on the totem pole. But there’s a tribe of people called the Ashanti and in this specific tribe, the women run things. It means woman of strength and I thought this is perfect for me.”

See Britney Spears Sing “…Baby One More Time” While Doing Laundry

“The TEAM said NO and serves me with 4 girls, my sister included, doing a 5 minute version of 4 remixed songs to a T not even having to give effort or dance,” she wrote. “Just shot it beautifully and the sound was NEW!!!”

Britney, who has slammed the performance before, added, “They ruined it for me, embarrassed me and made me feel like absolutely nothing!!! The truth is a fucking b–ch!!!” 

While she wasn’t pleased with the performance, it hasn’t stopped Britney’s love of music, adding, “I share this because I am aware of my love and passion to sing…and my own family made a fool of me…I’m not going to be a victim !!!”  

Just don’t expect a new version of the song to drop anytime soon.  

“Pssss you say go do it NOW after 14 years of asking and telling…I worked my ass off then I was locked up in one place…It’s too late,” she explained, seemingly referencing her 13-year-long conservatorship which ended in November.  “Like I said, they ruined it for me.”

Ricky Martin Denies “Sexual or Romantic Relationship” With Nephew

Martin, real name Enrique José Martin Morales, then proceeded to call the petitioner frequently and was also seen loitering near his residence at least three times, the newspaper quoted the document as saying. The petitioner “fears for his safety,” the document alleges, per El Vocero.

A hearing has been scheduled for July 21.

After the restraining order was filed, Martin’s lawyer said in a statement, “The allegations against Ricky Martin that lead to a protection order are completely false and fabricated. We are very confident that when the true facts come out in this matter our client Ricky Martin will be fully vindicated.”

In addition, Martin himself posted on social media at the time, “The protection order entered against me is based on completely false allegations, so I will respond through the judicial process with the facts and the dignity that characterize me. Because it is an ongoing legal matter, I cannot make detailed statements at this time. I am grateful for the countless messages of solidarity, and I receive them with all my heart.”

‘Help people out’ EastEnders’ Cheryl Fergison blasts airlines over seat belt extenders | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

EastEnders star Cheryl Fergison has called out airlines over their way of addressing people who are “a little bit larger” and might need a seat belt extender. Taking to her Instagram account, Cheryl shared her thoughts on seatbelt extenders in view of her 42,100 followers.

The actress emphasised the need for airline staff to help people feel more comfortable and less embarrassed when they need a seatbelt extender.

She said: “The staff seeing that someone might be a little bit larger, you should know your plane by now.

“And you should know whether somebody needs an extra thing [seatbelt extender] so they don’t have to buzz for it or do those things that they sometimes feel a bit embarrassed about asking because it’s drawing attention to themselves.”

Cheryl continued: “When you see somebody who you know won’t fit into your plane seats, give them the extra bit of belt as they come on.

The TV star, who is set to take the stage later tonight, shared a statement to thank the event organisers for asking her to take part in the event.

She shared a series of pictures showcasing different corners of the town, which had been decorated with the rainbow flag.

Cheryl captioned the snaps: “It’s the beautiful town of Mullingar ready for its 1st @mullingarpride and I am so proud to have been asked to host this spectacular event.

“Thank you all in advance for coming to support this important event and show the @lgbtq community that together events like these make a difference and that celebrating who you are is key to helping educate for the future.”

Find Out Which Love Island Couples Are Still Together

Sigh, this one stung. Don’t you just hate it when the winning couple is one of the first ones to split? After getting together just weeks before the finale, with Greg being one of the last Islanders to join the villa, the fan-favorite pair managed to win season five. But they broke up just weeks later. 

After some mild controversy and back and forth between the couple over how exactly the split went down (apparently Greg, a rugby player based in Ireland, ended it via text), Amber said on Loose Women, “I think the careers and the distance was always a factor. It was always something that we knew about, so I don’t know what changed. I kind of wanted to make it work, but it is what it is, really.”

As for Greg, he defended himself, saying on RTE’s The Late Late Show, “She lives in the UK, every brand wants to work with her, every event wants her there, of course, she deserves all of it and I decided to come back to Ireland and do my thing here.”
