James Martin issues apology after getting emotional on-air as chef addresses loss | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

James Martin has just celebrated the 200th episode of his ITV show, Saturday Morning, but his emotions were bittersweet as he honoured the late Michel Roux Senior, a fellow restaurateur, who had been a “father figure” to him. The 49-year-old felt compelled to fight back the tears earlier today as he recalled a time he had cooked at the legendary chef’s French home.

Michel had been the founder of various restaurants, including as Le Gavroche, the first restaurant in Britain ever to be awarded three Michelin stars, and he remains a household name for foodies even after his death in 2020, aged 78.

James, who has always spoken openly about his admiration for the star entrepreneur, swiftly posted an apology to his 717,000 Twitter followers.

“Sorry I got a bit emotional on the @sat_jamesmartin show,” the butter-loving chef declared in his post.

“Michel Roux Snr was like a father figure to me and that day in France was one of the greatest in my life.”

However, foodie fans were quick to assure him that his emotions weren’t an ingredient they would want to leave out of the recipe.

They poured supportive messages onto the post, telling the misty-eyed chef that he should not feel ashamed as his reaction was entirely “human”.

@KerryVanGelder urged: “Don’t be sorry for having a heart that’s why so many people like myself like you x”

@mcam9 chimed in: “NEVER apologise for displaying emotion. We never apologise for being happy, why should we when we are sad?”

“I can fully understand that day in France with him was the greatest day of your life. Big love to you fella.”

Meanwhile, @TheMackemRacer reminicised on times when he and Michel had appeared on TV together.

“I remember the great chef coming on your Saturday show on the Beeb. He made puff pastry from scratch,” the tweeter exclaimed.

“Spellbinding. Even the chefs on the show were in awe. A great man.”

@OriginalTreacle concurred: “It’s lovely when your heroes are also your friends.”

Asked previously about his culinary heroes in an interview on the Roux Scholarship website, he recalled that his father figure “was a huge, a massive inspiration in my life.

“Not only practically wise for my career, but for my life in general.

“I looked to him for advice on so many different things, be it launching a restaurant, new dishes, or just general life advice.”

Christian Horner’s wife Geri leaves fans in disbelief with unexpected look amid Grand Prix | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

Christian Horner’s wife Geri Halliwell 49, hasn’t worn any colour in years.

Nowadays, the former pop star, who is married to the Formula One boss, always wears white.

She had fans doing a double take after she took to Instagram on Friday and unveiled a surprising new look.

The supportive wife left fans in disbelief when she shared a photo posing with her husband, Christian, 48, wearing an outfit that wasn’t white!

Geri opted for another colour instead, in a knee-length, sleeveless cream dress and a matching jumper draped across her shoulders.

She added a pair of elegant off-white, heeled sandals and a multi-coloured bag featuring shades of purple, white and green.

Christian sported a pair of cream trousers, which he teamed with a navy shirt and matching suit jacket.

Geri shared the sweet snap, in view of her 1.3 million followers.

Fans flocked to the comment section, as Tom wrote: “That is not white.”

Lydnsey quizzed: “No white?” while Caz confirmed: “Cream.”

Nick Jonas: These Family Members Would Rock Dancing With Myself

Nick Jonas isn’t the only family member Burnin’ Up the dance floor.

As excitement continues to build for NBC’s new series, Dancing With Myself, one of the show’s creators is more than confident that a few of his family members could win over the audience. 

“I mean, obviously [wife] Priyanka would do very well. She is a dancer,” Nick exclusively shared with E! News. “I think that my little brother Franklin would probably do pretty well.”

And before you question if this Jo Bro has what it takes, Nick reminded fans that you don’t have to be a professional to win big.

“Part of the fun of the show is that you don’t have to take yourself too seriously,” Nick explained. “He’s got a great sense of humor. It’s all about going up there and having fun and I think that’s what people will fall in love with about this show.”

Jeremy Clarkson left ‘worried’ about being fined as he claims ‘BBC keep banging on’ | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

A drip feed of no confidence letters in Mr Johnson has been issued in recent days as pressure has continued to grow.

The Clarkson’s Farm host has since called into question the constant media attention surrounding politicians breaching lockdown and being issued with fines.

Writing in his latest column, the car-enthusisast turned farmer shared his worries, as he lamented, “Will I crop a fine?”

Jeremy admitted he took the first lockdown in 2020 “very seriously” but didn’t follow suit with subsequent restrictions.

He began: “Throughout the Partygate investigation we’ve been told that Boris had some cake while another person was in the room and that Sir Starmer had a beer and a curry during a meeting with colleagues.

“And I’ll admit, I’ve been worried.”

The Clarkson’s Farm host said he washed his hands all of the time and wore a mask.

He celebrated his 60th birthday, with his girlfriend Lisa Hogan, and his children – albeit sitting two metres apart.


He wrote: “I’m all in favour of going after politicians when they make a mess, and those Downing Street wonks who vomited and had a karaoke session need a smacked bottom for sure.

“But Boris and Sir Starmer? Nah.”

Jeremy concluded: “Leave them alone on this, because they’ve got other, much more important, things to be getting on with.”

Last month, Mr Johnson received a fixed-penalty notice (FPN) for attending a birthday celebration held in his honour in June 2020, as did Rishi Sunak, the chancellor, who reportedly made just a fleeting appearance.

The PM will not receive any more fines for lockdown-breaching parties, it has since been confirmed.

Meanwhile, Sir Starmer had previously said he would resign if he received a fine for breaching Covid rules.

Elsewhere, Jeremy was recently joined by none other than Only Fools and Horses legend David Jason.

The actor flew to the presenter’s Diddly Squat Farm in a helicopter, earlier this week.

Demi Rose unveils voluptuous figure for fans in latest sensational outfits | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

Instagram model Demi Rose Mawby showcased her curves in a floaty floor length dress as she posed for the cameras in Ibiza, Spain. The dreamy island location is a place she has previously described as her “home”.

Demi attracted Kardashian comparisons for her shapely derriere, paired with her slim and toned waist which were on display thanks to the open back design of the dress.

The front featured a plunging neckline, with a peach satin bustier top section, plus her long and colourful skirt boasted a slit up one side.

The model also looked the picture of innocence in her previous post, where she guzzled from a glass while wrapping herself in a sheer white dress with a crocheted lace trip.

Reclining beside a bathtub in an all-white backdrop, her hair was styled into loose and languid waves.

“Don’t go wasting my emotions,” she warned in the caption of her post.

“No salt no Sugar no wasting her emotions,” @vincewilliamss quipped in response.

@savannahpetrovic75 added: “I’m head over heels in love!”

Meanwhile @kennethstyle86 opted to send Demi a poem, writing: “Earth shattering, Hips flattering, Her inner beauty is vibrating… She owns her Power.”

So far, the buxom beauty has accumulated almost 20 million followers for her sensual snaps.

However one told her today: “You don’t have to dress up!”

“If you go to pretty much any football ground across the UK there are signs in the men’s loos talking about prostate cancer, but I bet if I went onto my local high street right now, no one would know the symptoms for blood cancer,” Simon continued to The Sun.

He pointed out that the disease robs 15,000 people of their lives each year – and yet it is far less publicised than many other forms of cancer.

The symptoms, which were tragically missed in his wife, can include an unexplained rash, bruise or spate of bleeding.

Sufferers can also feel exhausted and breathless and experience drenching night sweats and pains in their bones.

James Martin: Saturday Morning host’s insight into low-key romance with girlfriend Louise | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

James Martin, 49, has been in a relationship with Louise Davies since 2011 after meeting on the set of a TV show. Not much is known about the pair’s budding romance, with the Saturday Morning host keeping his private life under wraps and away from social media, however, this hasn’t stopped insiders revealing details.

The 49-year-old previously dated a former Miss England, Sally Kettle, to a James Bond producer, Barbara Broccoli.

He met Louise in 2010 when he went on to the celebrity version of Who Wants To Be a Millionaire.

The pair spend a lot of time together at home along with their dog Ralph.

Since news of their relationship came in 2016, the television chef rarely speaks about his private life with his long-term partner.

However, a source gave an insight into the pair’s blossoming relationship in 2017.

At the time, they told The Sun: “James desperately wants to keep his private life out of the spotlight and under wraps following his romance with Barbara Broccoli.

“It’s easy to do with Louise as she likes things low-key as well, unlike Barbara who loved making a fuss over him.”

The insider added Louise goes “everywhere” with him, often coming along with him to his TV production sets.

“I admire people who do it, that’s fine, but I’m quite happy.”

He added to the Sunday People in 2019: “I don’t need to spend 60 grand on a day, no, I’m more than happy thanks.”

The ITV presenter has previously opened up about his career and admitted he has sacrificed having a family for his success.

While the TV chef said he does not plan to start a family, many of his friends are married with children.
