David Dimbleby addresses fears over Queen missing Jubilee as he says ‘future is uncertain’ | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

The BBC legend went on to give his thoughts on whether there would be any extra emotion given to the proceedings, considering the monarch’s advancing years. 

David explained: “It’s a very significant moment and the future is uncertain territory. 

“She is a very religious woman and I’m sure the service will be, for her, a very significant event. 

“I think, in a strange way, it matters to her as much as it matters to the British public as a whole, because it marks 70 years of what she dedicated herself to, the promise she made to serve.”

‘Stop having a thin skin’ Huw Edwards addresses backlash from BBC viewers: ‘Every week!’ | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

Huw Edwards, 60, has spoken out about receiving criticism from BBC News at Ten viewers. The Welsh presenter has fronted the 10 o’clock show since 2003 and is now the BBC’s highest-paid newsreader.

Nevertheless, the nature of his job means he does suffer backlash which he admits has been difficult at times.

Huw told Men’s Health UK: “When I think back 20 years to me getting The Ten job, it took a long time to stop having a thin skin about people having a pop.”

The newsreader explains that viewers would say: “Why is this Welsh guy doing the news? Why doesn’t he sod off back to Cardiff and do the news there? All he does is read an autocue! Get rid of him!”

On how it has affected him, he continued: “You can laugh it off but if it’s every bl**dy week. I wasn’t used to it. I was used to being told I was brilliant.

“My mistake was thinking you can please all of the people. And you can’t. You have to be grown up enough to just accept that.”

While Huw says he tries to “accept” any negativity, he does at times hit back at those who criticise him.

Last week it was estimated that Huw earned around £37,500 in the first quarter of the year thanks to external events, according to Press Gazette.

This calculation is on top of his £430,000 BBC salary.

“Because you’d look like a rotting corpse if you didn’t have make-up on TV, that’s why.”

During his chat with host Jane Garvey, Huw also pointed out that his role goes beyond reading the news.

He said: “Bear in mind lots of my work for the Ten (o’clock news), most of it is done before I go on air, so therefore you are part of the team that makes decisions about what’s in the programme.

“I’m responsible for writing headlines and cues, so there’s journalistic work that goes on before you go on air.

“When you’re on air, yes of course there are certain demands which are to do it in a professional and polished way. 

“But I would say the News Channel is probably a better example…you’re interviewing people, you’re responding to things.” 

BBC News at Ten airs weekdays from 10pm on BBC One.

Huw Edwards was speaking to Men’s Health UK ‘Talking Heads’ columnist, Alastair Campbell, in the June issue of the magazine, on sale from 25th May.

Morgan Freeman banned from Russia alongside nearly 1,000 Americans including some deceased | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

Morgan Freeman, 84, has been included on a list of 963 Americans permanently banned from Russia. Joining Morgan on the “black list” is Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and several deceased people including senator John McCain, lawyer Harry Reid and Orrin Hatch.

President Joe Biden and US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken were already on the list.

The president’s son, Hunter Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris and Hillary Clinton have also been added.

Former president Donald Trump was not included in the list.

It is thought that Morgan could have been included because of a 2017 video.

He narrated a clip for an organisation called the Committee to Investigate Russia.

In the video, Morgan says: “We have been attacked. We are at war.

“Imagine this movie script, a former KGB spy angry at the collapse of his motherland, plots a course for revenge.

“Taking advantage of the chaos, he works his way up through the ranks of a post-Soviet Russia and becomes president.

The Russian foreign ministry said: “We emphasise that the hostile actions taken by Washington, which boomerang against the United States itself, will continue to receive a proper rebuff.

“Russia does not seek confrontation and is open to honest, mutually respectful dialogue.

“Separating the American people, who are always respected by us, from the US authorities, who incite Russophobia, and those who serve them.

“It is these people who are included in the Russian ‘black list’.”

Gary Lineker sparks backlash as he dismisses Union Jack flags ahead of Queen’s Jubilee | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

Match of the Day presenter Gary Lineker has sparked a backlash over his comments about flags ahead of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. Taking to Twitter, the sports broadcaster, 61, revealed his inability to “get excited” by the Union Jack weeks before the queen’s Jubilee.

In view of his 8.4 million followers, the pundit made divisive remarks over the items.

Gary wrote: “I’ve tried really hard, but I just can’t get excited by flags. Any flags.

“They’re just pieces of cloth with a stick, right?

“Does it make me a bad person?” he asked.

“Technically, yeah, but it’s what that cloth represents that’s important.

“What it stands for. It’s who we, or anyone else, is,” they added.

@CraigIrvinee commented: “When I drive along and see someone with a Union Jack flying in their garden it does make me smile, not that it really matters, just nice to see some people are still proud of the country we are fortunate enough to live in.

However, others agreed with the star, with @potatodoctor replying: “I agree 100% Gary, I don’t see the point of them and all they do is cause trouble and division.”

Nick Knowles, 59, and partner Katie Dadzie, 32, rise above backlash at Chelsea Flower Show | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

Nick and Katie smiled for cameras as they posed together for the VIP preview day of the annual event, ahead of the popular garden show’s public opening tomorrow.

The pair went public with their relationship last year, but Nick was forced to speak out about his girlfriend last month to defend her after trolls branded her a “gold digger” on social media due to their 27-year age difference. 

It seems the couple have chosen to rise above the vitriol, however, as they donned their summer best for the occasion. 

The DIY SOS presenter wore a light blue suit jacket with pinstripes over a navy shirt. 

He paired the jacket with white trousers, completing the look with a pair of brown brogues.


Katie looked gorgeous in a summery, cornflower blue maxi dress, complete with a white floral print.

She accessorised with a cream blazer over the dress and a pair of brown heels. 

Explaining why the comments about Katie had riled him up so much last month, Nick told The Sun: “I choose to be on TV. As a result, I expect the whole nine yards.

“I am up there as an object. I’ve chosen to be on TV but my children, or my family, or people I date, for them I feel it’s unfair to have a go at them.”

He also told his Twitter followers at the time: “I’m raging. The woman I was out to dinner with when we were papped is 32, has degrees in two subjects, runs 3 businesses, is a mother of 2, is wealthier & more successful than me & is intelligent & independent unlike the abusive trolls attacking her. What happened to #bekind?”
