In January, Gethin explained that he kept busy with his studies, despite becoming ill himself.

He described the time as “hard”.

He said: “I was doing some work like Celebrity MasterChef at the time, and then got Covid myself and had to pull out, but then the Masters [Masters in Sport Directorship (MSD)] sort of kept me going.

“But it was quite hard, I was living in Manchester city centre and it was like a ghost town and there was no real communication with anyone.

It was a really odd time.”

Jason Momoa Is Dating Eiza González After Lisa Bonet Breakup

Jason Momoa is sea-ing someone new following his breakup with longtime partner Lisa Bonet.

The Aquaman star and Eiza González have been “dating casually for a couple of months,” a source close to the actress exclusively tells E! News. Momoa attended the Los Angeles premiere of Eiza’s action film Ambulance in April, though the two did not pose together for photos on the red carpet.

“She really likes him,” the insider continues. “She is very focused on her career right now. But everyone loves him and he is a fun guy to be around.”

While Jason, 42, has been busy filming Fast X—the tenth installment of the Fast & Furious franchise—the source says that he and Eiza, who previously appeared in the action saga’s spinoff Hobbs & Shaw, “plan on traveling to see each other when they can.”

News of Jason’s relationship with Eiza, 32, comes four months after the actor and Lisa, his wife of four years, announced they were “parting ways in marriage.”

Kristin Chenoweth Reveals Connection to Unsolved Girl Scout Murders

Were it not for a minor illness, Kristin Chenoweth‘s life could’ve looked a lot different.

The Tony Award winning actress reveals she was supposed to go on a camping trip to Camp Scott with her fellow Girl Scouts in June 1977. On the expedition, three young girls, Lori Lee Farmer, 8, Doris Denise Milner, 10, and Michele Heather Guse, 9, were sexually assaulted and murdered as the other campers slept nearby.

Now, 45 years later, Chenoweth is returning to her home state of Oklahoma in the ABC documentary Keeper of the Ashes: The Oklahoma Girl Scout Murders, in which she and investigators look deeper into the unsolved case.

“I should have been on that trip, but I had gotten sick,” Chenoweth explains in a trailer released May 16. “It has stuck with me my whole life. I could have been one of them.”

The actress adds, “It haunts me every day, but this story needs to be told.”

Why Stranger Things Season 4 Is “Horrific Psychologically”

Hawkins, Indiana, has never been an ideal home for the faint of heart, but now it’s worse than ever.

Stranger Things fans have watched the town get terrorized by Demogorgons and mind flayers three seasons in a row, but according to David Harbour—who plays Hawkins’ chief of police Jim Hopper—things really hit the fan in the highly-anticipated fourth season.

“It’s quite horrific psychologically,” Harbour exclusively told E! News’ Daily Pop at the Netflix premiere on May 14. “It takes a toll on a lot of people.”

This time around, he said, “there’s a new brain to the monster, [and] it’s gonna destroy people in all kinds of new ways.”

Surely his adopted daughter, Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown), and her beloved group of friends—Will Byers (Noah Schnapp), Mike Wheeler (Finn Wolfhard), Dustin Henderson (Gaten Matarazzo), Lucas Sinclair (Caleb McLaughlin) and Max Mayfield (Sadie Sink)—won’t actually be destroyed, right? It’s hard to say. After all, said Harbour, “there’s a logic to who survives Hawkins.”

Matt Lucas and Piers Morgan praise ‘brave’ Jake Daniels as footballer comes out as gay | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

“But off the pitch, I’ve been hiding the real me and who I really am. I’ve known my whole life that I’m gay, and I now feel that I’m ready to come out and be myself. It’s a step into the unknown being one of the first footballers in this country to reveal my sexuality, but I’ve been inspired by Josh Cavallo, Matt Morton and athletes from other sports, like Tom Daley, to have the courage and determination to drive change.

“In reaching this point, I’ve had some of the best support and advice from my family, my Club, my agent and Stonewall, who have all been incredibly proactive in putting my interests and welfare first. I have also confided in my teammates in the youth team here at Blackpool, and they too have embraced the news and supported my decision to open up and tell people.

“I’ve hated lying my whole life and feeling the need to change to fit in. I want to be a role model myself by doing this. There are people out there in the same space as me that may not feel comfortable revealing their sexuality. I just want to tell them that you don’t have to change who you are or how you should be just to fit in. You being you, and being happy, is what matters most.”
