‘No one’s buying it!’ Kate Garraway calls out Gemma Atkinson after sudden show exit | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

Kate Garraway insisted that “no one was buying” that Gemma Atkinson had to leave her show early after it was announced that the remaining participants would have to stand in ice cold water live on TV. The Hits Radio presenter told Kate she had to catch a train, but the presenter was not convinced, teasing that the star had instead “run away”. 

Gemma, 37, appeared on Garraway’s Good Stuff this morning, where she spoke about her new exercise programme to help new mums get back into shape without piling on the pressure. 

The star appeared alongside Irish presenter, Angela Scanlon, 38, and took it in turns to talk to Kate, 55. 

In the last five minutes of the show, however, Gemma seemed to have suddenly disappeared. 

Her departure came shortly after an expert from Freeze the Fear came to introduce the women to the Wim Hof method, which involved plenty of ice.

Freeze the Fear with Wim Hof is a new ITV reality show that sees celebrities push themselves beyond their limits in sub-zero temperatures. 

The Wim Hof method is designed to help people retake control of their bodies through a combination of breathing, cold therapy, and meditative techniques.  

Kate made a cheeky joke about Gemma’s early departure, as she left shortly before the women were left grimacing as they dunked their feet in buckets of ice.

As the camera panned back to Kate, she told her audience: “I should say that Gemma has had to run away to get back home to catch a train…

From there, Shivi and Angela were asked to put their feet in icy water, while Kate had to stand in a large, freezing cold tub in the middle. 

Kate launched her new Saturday morning show on ITV last month.

The star is probably best known for presenting Good Morning Britain on weekday mornings and also for her documentaries following the struggles of her husband Derek Draper, who was seriously affected by Covid.

Introducing her brand new show on April 16, Kate said: “The idea is that every Saturday morning all the way through the summer, I am going to be here for an hour where we can just forget the bad stuff and give ourselves a big dollop of positivity.

“With some great guests who will share with us what makes them feel good, we have some tasty and delicious food for your Saturday night TV dinner as well.

“And we are going to be diving into the often hilariously weird but always wonderful world of wellbeing, with some simple ideas that we can use in our real lives and bring some joy into our world.

“So the idea is to give ourselves a great start to the weekend and hopefully a happier and healthier week ahead.”

Garraway’s Good Stuff airs every Saturday at 8.30am on ITV.

Rebekah Vardy says Coleen Rooney row cost her ‘book deal’ and ‘placenta capsule’ contract | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

Rebekah Vardy, 40, claimed that the Wagatha Christie drama has had a negative effect on her career and she has lost work as a result. Ms Vardy is now suing Coleen Rooney for libel after the latter accused her Instagram account of leaking personal stories to the press.

Ms Vardy says that she had a “potential book deal” lined up which has now been “turned down”.

She also claims that a midwife company was going to make placenta pills for her after the birth of her fifth child, Olivia.

In a now released witness statement, Ms Vardy claimed: “I had a midwife company lined up to make placenta capsules and they pulled out weeks before the birth,” as reported by The Mirror.

The documents were released yesterday after agreement from lawyers on both sides of the case.

Evidence included texts between Ms Vardy and her husband, Jamie Vardy.
 
Screenshots of the messages saw Ms Vardy complain that she was being made a “scapegoat” during Euro 2016 and that news coverage made her “blood boil”.  

In June 2016, Mrs Vardy shared an article link with her husband that reported that Wayne Rooney had “held talks” with Mr Vardy about his wife.

“Seriously????” Mrs Vardy messaged her husband. He then replied: “No not at all babes x.”

Mrs Vardy said: “Joke makes my blood boil X.”

A series of posts from Coleen Rooney’s private Instagram between 2017 and 2019 were also released.

They include a post celebrating her husband’s birthday and another of Mr Rooney and three of their sons in pyjamas in bed.

The mother-of-four claims that an article, later published in The Sun, referenced the two posts, including quoting the so-called “birthday post” “word-for-word”.

The seven-day trial at London’s High Court concluded on Thursday.

Both women gave evidence and Mrs Justice Steyn is due to give her ruling at a later date.

‘Standing with you’ Jamie Oliver praised for Eton Mess protest outside No 10 amid backlash | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

Jamie Oliver, 46, has received a wave of support after he led a protest outside Downing Street over the government’s U-turn on its anti-obesity strategy. The crowd of around 100 people were demanding a ban on multibuy and Buy-One-Get-One-Free deals on unhealthy foods.

Friday’s demonstration saw the celebrity chef carrying a giant Eton Mess which he said was a reference to the “privilege and mess that is our British government”.

Following the protest, Jamie took to Instagram to thank those who joined him.

Sharing a picture of the demonstration, the chef penned in view of his nine million followers: “A massive thank you to everyone that came to Number 10 today.  

“It was crazy, but we did what we needed to do, to officially hold the government to account on their child health U-turn.

“I was touched and inspired by how many of you came from far away to support us…we shall push on.”

In a follow-up video, Jamie expressed how grateful he was once again.

Speaking directly to the camera, he said: “It was a busy day, it was raining, and there were so many amazing people that came from all over the country, from all backgrounds. There were teachers, professionals that work on the frontline, kids, students, I was so grateful so thank you so much if you came.

“Hopefully we did the cause proud.”

And Paul penned: “Thank you Jamie for all your hard work for the children of Britain even if the government and Boris don’t give a dam.”

Nevertheless, some people have criticised the protest as “tone deaf” amid the current cost of living crisis.

James commented: “Just a thought, why don’t you push the government to make healthy options more affordable?  

“To some people right now they are buying whatever they can afford and in most cases that will be unhealthy options. Taking those options away at this moment in time will only harm people more.”

Twitter user Nate also fumed: “I see Jamie Oliver is once again attacking working class families by pretending to care about the food they eat.  

“How about instead of scrapping money saving deals on food, we make healthy food cheaper? We help the cost of living? We give better access to child care?”

And Ash added: “Jamie Oliver is becoming increasingly tone deaf, and maybe HE is the one that needs an Eton mess pudding in his face.”

Jamie was asked at the protest whether his campaign was out of touch at a time where families are struggling to put food on the table.

He said: “This whole strategy was designed by the government and has been researched by the government proving that this particular mechanic [two-for-one deals on junk food] makes people spend more of their income and waste more….

“We want to put child health first, the strategy was looking world class and now it doesn’t.” 

‘The first crack’ Brian McFadden cheated on Kerry Katona with a stripper at his stag do  | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

“I was very young when I met her and no one ever loved me before. So when Kerry came along and wanted me, that gap was filled and I felt good simply because I had someone to share everything with,” he told the Independent in 2007.

“I never stopped to think, ‘You really should get to know this person before you have kids, think of marrying or settle down.’

“So then, when we had the first baby, bought a house, spent time together and Westlife became the same thing over and over, I woke up one morning and realised, ‘This is not what I want to do with my life, I don’t see myself being with this woman in 20 years, she’s not who I’m meant to be with, we don’t have anything in common.'”

He also admitted he had been unfaithful during his stag do, with a stripper.

The strapless number included a faded red and black print which she paired with some very sexy sky-high leather boots.

‘We’re not friends’ Minnie Driver addresses run-in with ex Matt Damon years after split | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

Minnie Driver has addressed crossing paths with her ex-partner Matt Damon once more, years after their relationship very publicly ended. The famous actress explained how the pair “weren’t friends” in an insightful interview with podcast host Elizabeth Day. 

Minnie, 52, had a whirlwind romance with her Good Will Hunting co-star Matt, 51, between 1997 and 1998. 

During the podcast, Elizabeth referred to the pair’s infamously awkward breakup, where Matt announced he was single on the Oprah Winfrey show after the two had been dating. 

She also referenced Minnie calling Matt out after his somewhat controversial remarks about the #MeToo movement. 

Elizabeth then went on to ask if Minnie was still friends with the star, to which she replied: “I wouldn’t say we’re friends.

“We don’t see each other and hang out, but I’ve seen him around in the last few years and it’s actually been really nice. We had a couple of chats pre-Covid on the beach near where I live. 

“We’re not friends, but I feel an enormous amount of love for him because we shared this inflection point,” she continued. “Well, it was an inflection point for me.

“I think it’s ok to call people out if you’re willing to stand by what you believe. I don’t think you should call people out just to get attention and I also think you can move on from that and grow and learn and I think about him in a very friendly way now.”

She went on to discuss her memoir Managing Expectations, which arrived in bookstores earlier this month. 

Since then, the pair have both dated a number of high-profile actors, but both now appear to be settled in their respective relationships.

Minnie never married, but has been involved with filmmaker Addison O’Dea since 2019 and has a son Henry, 13, from a prior relationship.

Matt got married to wife Luciana Barroso in 2005, who he met filming Stuck on You in Miami in April 2003.

The couple share three daughters: Isabella Damon, 15, Gia Damon,13 and Stella Damon, 10. 

Luciana also has a daughter named Alexia Barroso, 23, from a previous marriage, who Matt considers to be his own.
