Jane McDonald’s ‘lovely commute to a restaurant’ from her river cruise – ‘like in Venice'

Jane McDonald’s ‘lovely commute to a restaurant’ from her river cruise - ‘like in Venice'

Although theirs wasn’t a proper gondola, as Jane would have liked, it’s a very similar way to commute to that they use in the city of canals.

In Venice, big boats can’t get on the narrow canals, and gondolas have to take tourists to the city centre.

As opposed to what many people think, residents of the Italian city don’t use gondolas to move around.

It is reported that although there are only a few hundred gondolas left in Venice, almost none of them are used as private transport by local Venetian families.

Another said: “Only Jane could be in a bather in a hot tub, on a boat, in the middle of winter, saying hello it’s lovely to meet you, to the public, on the street, whilst going under a rather busy bridge full of more public.”

Another wrote: “Jane McDonald and Sue Ravey drinking hot chocolate with marshmallows and cream while sat on a barge, and wrapped in blankets, on primetime TV in 2021.”

“Cruising with Jane McDonald is the best thing about Sundays,” one wrote.

To finish off the show, which saw Jane take a trip from Hampton Court to Henley, the presenter sang Waterloo Sunset by The Kinds.

Jane McDonald warns ‘be prepared’ as she shares luggage tips for British river cruise
Jane McDonald appeared for the third instalment of the latest season of Cruising with Jane McDonald on Channel 5. The cruise enthusiast booked a four-berth private luxury river cruise with two of her girlfriends, Sue and Olwen, for their 70th birthdays. The cruise saw Jane and her friends begin their journey at Hampton Court before finishing at Henley-on-Thames.
Jane began by showing viewers how she packs up her toiletries for a cruise.

She used a hanging toiletry bag which she lay out on the bed before hanging up in her bathroom.

Jane doesn’t unpack her toiletries but simply uses them from the bag when she needs them.

She added: “I always have it packed with everything that I need for travelling.”

“I’ll put an outfit on a hanger so that I know what scarf goes with what jacket.

“Then, I know exactly where the trousers are.

“The white boots – these I brought because you just never know when you want a little sexy outfit!

“We might do that because it’s the girls’ birthday week.”

Jane McDonald couldn't look happier in new Cruising snaps taken before fiancé's death 
The 58-year-old has shared three throwback photos of herself filming Cruising With Jane McDonald last year, as she appeared carefree while taking in beautiful coastal views aboard a liner. The Loose Women star has had a tough 2021 following the death of her long-term love Eddie Rothe back in March, but has put on a brave face to continue promoting her professional commitments.
Jane appeared in the first snap posted on her Instagram looking stylish while wearing a tight-fitting pink dress for filming on location.

She paired the look with nude heeled shoes and oversized black sunglasses.

In the second picture, she beamed while posing in a shopping centre presumably as part of a pit-stop on her travels and finally she shared a beaming still of herself while dancing at a beach party.

Next to the nostalgic photos, it read: “In this week’s episode of ‘Cruising with Jane McDonald’ Jane will be horse-riding along the beach, discovering the wonders of the deep aboard a submarine and partying the night away at a carnival! Sunday 9pm @channel5_tv.”

Underneath fans raved over her fashionable attire while also praising her show’s latest series.

Jane typed: “I want to thank everyone most sincerely for the wonderful cards and messages of support that I have received since the awful news was announced that I had lost my beloved Ed.

“I’m so touched by each and every one. All the kind thoughts and words have meant so much to me and many of you have let me know that you are going through the same thing as me having lost loved ones and I wish you all love and strength back.

“I’m hugely grateful for everyone who very kindly donated to the Just Giving page for Wakefield Hospice in Ed’s memory.

“It’s been a tough time for us all recently and I know that better days are ahead,” she added.

Jane has announced this series of Cruising will be her last prior to the devastating loss of Eddie.

However, despite the show coming to an end, the songstress has vowed to continue going cruising in her free time.

She told OK! Magazine: “Cruising is in my blood. It has made me everything I am. 

“But it will be nice to sleep in and have breakfast in my room. Filming the show, I’m up at 5.30am every morning to get ready for everything we have to film in one day.”

Jane Fonda, Brooklyn Decker, Allison Janney & More Stars Looking Stylish With Grey Hair

Jane Fonda, Brooklyn Decker, Allison Janney & More Stars Looking Stylish With Grey Hair

From Brooklyn Decker to Patrick Dempsey, many celebrities are choosing to embrace their natural gray hair instead of cover it up. Even younger stars, like Kylie Jenner, love the silvery color!

While some people see gray hairs as something to cover up, not these celebrities. Some stars embrace their natural gray roots, while others purposefully dye their hair for an all-over gray transformation. Either way, gray is such a gorgeous color: so much so, even people in their celebrities in their 20’s and early 30’s are choosing to dye their hair the timeless shade (like Lady Gaga and Kylie Jenner). We put the spotlight on a few gray-headed celebrities below; you can also click through the photos in HollywoodLife‘s gallery above.

Leading the pack of celebrities with beautiful grey hair is 34-year-old model Brooklyn Decker. It’s natural for people in their 30’s (and even in their 20’s) to see gray roots spring up in their colorful manes, which Brooklyn proved with the selfie above. “Grays on grays on grays for days and I’m kinda digging ‘em,” Brooklyn captioned the photo shared on April 6. While Brooklyn admitted that she was getting her roots “colored next week” because she’s “not ready for the full commitment,” the model still “certainly enjoyed” her gray phase.

Meanwhile, Jane Fonda has made grey hair last longer than a phase. While she rose to fame in the ’60s as a bombshell blonde starring in movies like Barbarella, Jane has swapped her sunshine-colored waves for a short spunky ‘do featuring many wispy layers of stunning silver hair. Jane’s mane needs help to maintain, though.

Thanks to the work of hair colorist Jack Martin, Jane showed up to the 2020 Oscars with iced-out hair. Over a year later, the famous actress and activist is still happy with her decision to part ways with the blonde. “I tell you, I’m so happy I let it go gray. Enough already with so much time wasted, so much money spent, so many chemicals — I’m through with that,” Jane happily declared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Feb. 25.

It’s not just the ladies embracing their gray hair, either. There are many male celebrities who look like silver foxes, literally, with their gray-silver hair. Take Grey’s Anatomy star Patrick Dempsey, for example. While his hair is not completely gray like Ms. Fonda’s, he does sport a signature pepper shade (AKA, a cross between gray and dark hair).

You can check out even more celebrities with gray hair in HollywoodLife‘s gallery above! We’ve included photos of George Clooney, Jamie Lee Curtis, Paulina Porizkova and more.

Jane McDonald inundated with support as she posts fundraising page in tribute to fiancé Ed

“We would like to thank everyone for all their help and support during this very difficult time, especially the NHS staff and the wonderful team at The Wakefield Hospice.

“The funeral took place earlier today and we would please ask for your kindness in observing Jane’s privacy for her and Ed’s family at this sad time.”

Jane started dating Eddie, who was a drummer in The Searchers, in 2008 – which occurred over 20 years after they were first introduced.

Jane first met Eddie in 1980 and they struck up a romance before deciding to split.

The couple then reunited in 2008 and went on to get engaged.

“We both realise we are lucky to have found each other again.

“I am genuinely having fun again. I’m more confident than ever and I’ve got a fantastic man who makes me laugh every day.”

Jane also addressed their engagement, admitting in 2011: “This must be the longest courtship and engagement in history. 

“We first met when most people in this country weren’t even born!

“Ed’s been so patient. He’s fantastic, adorable and we’re having such a great time together. We are not rushing to get married. I love this one more than I ever loved the others and I don’t want to jinx it. 

“In any case, I can’t afford to get divorced again,” she quipped.
