Recalling stocking up on “essentials” for the next leg of the trip across Australia, she remembered one item that had become a necessity for Jeremy.

“As well as fags, wine, snacks and hangover cures, ‘essentials’ included a very expensive bottle of Glandosane, a lubricant especially used by actors to prevent or ease a dry throat,” she penned.

“Glandosane had become a necessity for Jeremy by this point in the tour.

“Not only was he using his renowned gravelly booming voice so much but he was, as you might have guessed by now, seriously burning the candle at both ends and in the middle, along with smoking sixty a day.”

Gavin and Stacey return teased by James Corden

James Corden has teased a return to Barry for Gavin and Stacey as he spoke to This Morning.

The actor and talk show presenter was speaking to Alison Hammond exclusively about his new movie Peter Rabbit 2 – and his role in the Friends reunion.

But it was the answer to one very simple – but oh so complicated – question that Alison wanted to know.

Alison asked him whether we would ever see another episode of Gavin and Stacey – something that has been hinted at but never confirmed.

BBC Director of TV said last year that it may return “one day” – but Ruth Jones said in an interview on This Morning: “I quite like leaving it hanging.”

As diehard fans will no doubt not need reminding, James Corden’s character Smithy was proposed to by Nessa right at the very end of the last Christmas special way back in 2019 – but the credits rolled before he could given an answer.

And when Alison asked him the question, he said: “Honestly, I don’t know the answer… I have no idea. I’m as excited to find out as you are!”

Alison continued: “Will we find out though? Will there be another episode?”

James answered: “Really it’s just about finding the time to do it and finding out if we think it’s good enough… nobody wants a last episode that doesn’t deliver. We’ve just got to let the tank fill up again really.”

He added: “I hope so much that we get to do one, I think it will be strange to leave it where we left it.”

When co-star Ruth Jones, who plays Nessa, was asked last year, she said: “There aren’t any plans to write anything.”

She added: “I think the joy of the Christmas special that it ended in such a way that if we never go back to Barry we will always wonder what happened.

“I think there’s something juicy about that. But we will always wonder, did Smithy say yes, did they get married.

Who knows whether we’ll ever get to go back… but there’s one thing for sure: we want to know the answer!

Demi later told fans to “chase it up” if appointments get cancelled as she was due to have her check-up six months prior to the date she visited the hospital.

She said: “At my scan, they said, ‘Everything looks fine’ and went to send me on my way. I challenged it and asked if they could do more, in which they said, ‘Oh well we can test the fluid if you want us to?'”

The reality star later added: “Thank god I asked as it was the fluid that can be potentially cancerous. Always push!”

There are four main types of Thyroid cancer including papillary carcinoma, follicular carcinoma, medullary thyroid carcinoma, anaplastic thyroid carcinoma.

Symptoms of Thyroid cancer include a painless lump or swelling in the front of the neck, swollen glands, unexplained hoarseness, a sore throat and difficulty swallowing, according to the NHS.

Great British Sewing Bee recycle week sees Andrew impress with sock tank top

Wearing a tank top made out of old socks, Hull’s Andrew Aspland was primed for the challenges posed by reduce, reuse, recycle week, on The Great British Sewing Bee.

Last night’s BBC One craft show saw the seven remaining stitchers tasked with making a man’s waistcoat, any garment for a woman and a dress made from scrap denim, with all the items having to be created from second-hand clothing.

Judge Patrick Grant introduced the programme with the “shocking” fact that millions of tonnes of clothing were being thrown away in the UK every year, explaining why the sewing room’s haberdashery – normally full of new rolls of fabric – had been replaced with pre-owned clothing for the contestants to use.

The tricky pattern round to make a five-buttoned man’s waistcoat, which Patrick said was a great tailoring challenge and ideally suited to recycled fabric, was made all the more complicated by most of the construction taking place inside out.

But maths teacher Andrew calculated his time well, even being able to lend a hand in the final seconds of the four hours to fellow competitor Farie who was struggling with the buckle on the back of her waistcoat.

Savile Row’s Patrick said of Andrew’s creation: “I very much like the choice of colour, it has a very traditional English waistcoat feel.”

Fellow judge, fashion designer Esme Young, declared Andrew’s waistcoat “overall, pretty good” and he was placed third.

The transformation challenge gave the stitchers 90 minutes to turn up to three military-surplus garments into a piece of woman’s clothing, with Esme saying she wanted “impact and drama”.

Andrew said of his make: “It’s starting off as a top but then it’s going to transform into a dress, I’ve pleated it on the shoulders and what I have done here is cunningly use the pockets to be like a little fluff of sleeve, but since they want a bit of wow factor I am thinking of doing a bit of boning and making this stand out.”

Appraising the garments without knowing their makers, Esme said of Andrew’s creation: “This person has gone to town”, while Patrick said he thought the outfit, which he could not make out whether it was a sort-of poncho, was “rather potty”, with its sleeves stuffed with bits of camouflage netting.

It earned Andrew fourth place as the stitchers went into the final made-to-measure round, for which he patched together 16 different pieces of recycled denim for his geometric Pythagoras’ Theorem dress – he had brought along his “trusty” set square to ensure a crisp finish with his right-angles.

Andrew now goes through to winter week in the bid to reach the quarter finals of the show.

The Great British Sewing Bee is on BBC One on Wednesdays at 9pm.

Gayle King’s swipe at Oprah Winfrey: ‘All she had to do was sit there and she’s b****ing!’

Gayle King’s swipe at Oprah Winfrey: ‘All she had to do was sit there and she’s b****ing!’
Oprah’s new AppleTV+ documentary with Prince Harry, entitled The Me You Can’t See, is coming out tomorrow. The programme will see Harry and other celebrities such as Lady Gaga and Glenn Close open up about mental health and the stigma around it. The Duke of Sussex will speak about the trauma of losing his mother Princess Diana and how he has been in therapy for four years now to work through the pain of his past.
This is the second collaboration Harry has done with Oprah now, after his bombshell interview with Meghan Markle earlier this year.

Harry and Meghan have been friends with Oprah for several years, giving her a prime pew at their wedding three years ago.

They are also friends with her CBS colleague Gayle King, who went to Meghan’s baby shower in New York two years ago.

Oprah Winfrey and Gayle King are known to be best friends, but even close friends can get on each other’s nerves if they spend too much time together.

In a video from 2006, the two TV legends were filmed taking a road trip, where they had to drive for many hours at a time and started to bicker.

Gayle said: “All you had to do was just ride today and listen to my singing, which should have been very pleasurable and enjoyable and relaxing for you.

“I’ve been driving for six hours, all she’s had to do is just sit here and relax and she’s b****ing!”

Oprah hit back that the singing was “why I’m so cranky”.

They had been driving for hours in Arizona and it was around 6pm when they took shots at each other.

Gayle then started to sing: “But we’re healthy, we’re happy and seeing the USA in a Chevrolet, America’s waiting for your call!”

Oprah giggled but warned: “You had better be quiet.

“Because I have to sit here for six hours and take in other people’s energy.”

Gayle said: “She’s just cranky and b****ing and getting old and Oprah nobody cares because we’re all frigging tired.”

That night, after 11 hours in the car, the pair stayed in a motel called the Wigwam Hotel in Holbrook, where the rooms were all shaped like teepees.

The pair dropped all the animosity they were feeling in the car and just laughed together when they saw it.

When asked whether they wanted to fill out a registration car separately or together, Gayle said: “Separately. We’re not a couple, despite what you’ve heard.”

The sweet woman running the motel explained that her father had built all the teepee motel rooms himself 55 years before.

Oprah joked that she wanted her “wigwam” at the other end of the “village” from Gayle.

The woman joked: “That can be arranged.”

Our Yorkshire Farm's Ravenseat estate has connections to royalty

Our Yorkshire Farm has made stars of the Owen family, and put their glorious home at Ravenseat Farm at the centre of attention.

It’s been reported that the vast estate is owned by billionaire Robert Miller, 87 – the 68th wealthiest person in the UK.

The upper Swaledale farm has a flock of over 1,000 sheep and numerous other animals, as well as Amanda Owen, husband Clive and their nine children.

But the estate also links to several other well-known families. According to the Express, the farm’s billionaire owner boasts several royal connections after his daughters married princes in the 1990s

Robert, who is the co-founder of DFS (Duty Free Shops), is a father of three. His daughters are Princess Alexandra von Furstenberg, 48, Pia Getty, 55, and the Crown Princess Marie-Chantal of Greece, 52, who are known as The Miller sisters.

They were the ‘It Girls’ of the 1990s and appeared on the pages of glossy magazines and tabloids before becoming princesses.

Marie-Chantal married Pavlos, Crown Prince of Greece, at age 27 after he proposed to her during a skiing holiday in Gstaad, Switzerland.

He is the heir to the now-defunct throne of Greece, where the monarchy was abolished in 1973.

The billionaire’s second daughter Alexandra followed in her sister’s footsteps, marrying into royalty.

In 1995 she wed Prince Alexander von Furstenberg, son of celebrated fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg.

However the marriage wasn’t to be, as the couple split seven years later, after having two children.

Yet Pia was hardly outdone by her sisters, marrying the grandson of American oil magnate Jean Paul Getty, Christopher Getty.

Miller co-founded the Hong Kong based Duty Free Shoppers chain in 1960 and luxury goods group LVMH took a stake in the business in 1998.

In 2018 The Sunday Times Rich List claimed that the billionaire is the richest person in Yorkshire.

At the time, he had a fortune valued at £2 billion, which had risen by £420 million in the past year, including his 36,000 acre Gunnerside shooting estate in Swaledale, North Yorkshire.

That estate is just 10 miles from the Owens’ Ravenseat Farm.

However, the Owen family are investing in their own property, having just bought their own farmhouse.

Yet it is a giant project, with the new farmhouse and land having been derelict for years.

The Yorkshire Shepherdess admitted it wasn’t a project for the fainthearted.

On the show’s last episode (May 11) Amanda said: “Steven is the first step but it’s a project not for the fainthearted.

“It’s the biggest project we could ever imagine but we won’t be defeated, we’ll do it somehow”.

Clive added: “It’s in a sad state, it’s hard to imagine that in the not too distant future we’ll be lighting a fire. But Rome wasn’t built in a day”.

The historic farm buildings in the Yorkshire Dales are part of a conservation and any work has to gain approval and can take a long time to fully restore.

With so few people able to help, it could be a long time before the Owen family can fully settle in to their new home.

Chris Evans: Virgin Radio host opens up on family tears as his twins mark new milestone

Chris Evans: Virgin Radio host opens up on family tears as his twins mark new milestone
Virgin Radio Breakfast Show host Chris Evans, 55, has revealed that there will be tears in his house this week as he candidly addressed a family milestone while chatting to his co-stars. The media personality has two-year-old twins Walt and Boo with wife Natasha Shishmanian, and he announced live on-air that the duo would be taking a big step by starting nursery today.
Talking about the passing of time on his breakfast show, the star went on to say that memories are either “a minute ago, or 100 years ago”.

After celebrating a listener’s birthday on air, the star added that his son Noah is also the same age.

“He’s 12, he’s catching up”, he added, before dropping a huge milestone for his family.

“The twins go to nursery for the first time tomorrow”, he revealed.

Chris’ co-host Rachel Horne sharply inhaled before simply commenting, “tears”.

“Rivers, rivers, flood warnings, amber warning in our house all week this week,” he added.

Rachel asked: “Has Tash got an exit strategy for when she drops them off?” referring to Chris’ wife Natasha.

“She needs to have something that she’s going to do”, she added.

At the end of last year, the DJ told his Virgin Radio co-stars that it’s highly unlikely that he and his wife will have any more children after noticing how she’s “developing and evolving” as a person.

He told his colleagues: “I think that Tash is very secretly gearing up to become a yoga teacher.”

“I think now, this is the biggest heads-up that we’re not going to have any more children because obviously she’s not going to tell me either way!”

The radio DJ confessed everything his wife would need to have another child is “done”, while revealing she can access “something, somewhere” that requires his signature every 12-months should she change her mind.

“I’m like, ‘Why am I signing this?’ and she says, ‘It doesn’t matter just sign it, don’t worry about it’,” he giggled.

With four children all under the age of 15, Chris believed their twins were the last two they would welcome into the family.

The star’s ex-wives include actress Billie Piper and Loose Women panellist Carol McGiffin.

Chris and his professional golfer wife married in 2007 and held their wedding reception in Portugal, which was attended by Chris’ ex Billie.

Our Yorkshire Farm mum Amanda Owen's modelling career before TV fame

Fans of Our Yorkshire Farm’s know Amanda Owen best for her farmer life, but she used to lead a far more glamorous lifestyle.

The Channel 5 star swapped strutting down catwalks and posing in studios for standing outside in the rain and shovelling animal poo.

But Amanda would not have it any other way as she loves running the Ravenseat Farm in Upper Swaledale.

The shepherdess appears on the show with her husband Clive Owen and their nine kids.

Before she started looking after 1,000 sheep, 40 cows, six dogs and four ponies, Amanda tried to break into the world of modelling.

Having grown up in Huddersfield, 6ft 2ins tall Amanda had aspirations of following in her mother’s footsteps and becoming a model, but the reality of the profession didn’t quite live up to the dream.

“When you think you’re going to be a model in like Vogue, Cosmopolitan, but actually then you end up doing knitting catalogues and things like,” she explained on the Channel 5 show.

Admitting it was not quite what she realised, Amanda added: “It was cardigans, floral, Prince Diana 1980. No thank you.”

Amanda had no family background in farming but was inspired to get outdoors when she found a hill shepherd book in the library full of photos of beautiful landscapes and animals.

She explained: “It was the pictures, it was the landscape, it was the people — everything in that book just appealed to me.

“It wasn’t glossing over the hard side, it was very real and very gritty and atmospheric but it was just the thought of working outdoors and actually doing something, having a physical job where you were out there feeling the elements — windburn, sunburn, rained on, all the rest of it — sounded like a good idea back then.”

Amanda quickly realised that being at one with nature was her calling so she turned her back on modelling.

It was during her early days as a 21-year-old trainee shepherdess where Amanda met future husband Clive, who was 42 at the time.

Back in 1995, Clive was running the farm singe-handedly when Amanda knocked on the door on one dark evening looking for a ram.

Amanda explained that she came to a burrow a “tup”, which is a male sheep for those not used to the farming lingo, when she first set eyes on divorced father-of-two Clive.

It may not have been love at first sight for Amanda, but bachelor Clive was immediately attracted to the young woman standing in his doorway.

“I do remember this six-foot something woman knocked on the door. I was very taken with her. You couldn’t not be,” he said.

They had similar backgrounds as Clive also came from a non-farming family but decided he wanted to pursue that way of life.

Despite the 21-year age gap, Amanda and Clive became friends before they started developing feelings for each other.

“It was a slow burn thing we kind of got to know each other. Made friends first then went out a little bit together,” said Amanda.

“With us both coming from non-farming backgrounds we were kind of peas in a pod really but we didn’t know that at the time.”

The couple went on to have nine children, Annas, Violet, Edith, Raven, Clemmy, Nancy, Reuben, Miles, and Sidney, who all help out on the farm when they can.

It’s not always been a glamorous life, as Amanda gave birth on the roadside six times and once by the fire in the living room with only their dog for company.

Amanda has been breastfeeding virtually non-stop for 15 years of her life and with their ninth child didn’t even realise she was pregnant until she was six months gone.

Since becoming a reality TV star, Amanda has been forced to hit back at assumptions made about her family and claims she is not a stereotypical shepherdess.

Last month, Amanda spoke out against the the suggestion she ‘doesn’t look like’ a farmer who is the mother of nine children on Steph’s Packed Lunch.

“Throughout it all you stay so glamorous. Which, always, I’m amazed about,” said host Steph McGovern.

Claiming this was certainly not the case, Amanda responded: “Look at my hands though Steph. Honestly, I’ve got iodine up my arm.

“I painted my nails while I was waiting to do this, but I really don’t know why I’ve bothered.”

Amanda admitted she doesn’t spend too much time thinking about the assumptions made about her looks and doesn’t like stereotypes.

“I mean yes I’ve got a sheepdog, yes I’ve got a crook. Yes I spend my time running around after sheep, but I can do other things too,” she said.

Amanda added: “I think that’s the name of the game, to be able to turn your hand to whatever comes your way.”

Our Yorkshire Farm airs Tuesdays on Channel 5 at 9pm.
