Kirstie Allsopp sparks backlash as she claims Covid ‘may kill us’ but ‘is here to stay’

Kirstie Allsopp, 49, has shared how she believes coronavirus will not be disappearing anytime soon as case numbers continue to rise in the UK. The Location, Location, Location host sparked backlash after saying Covid is “low down” on the list of things that might kill us, but added, “something has to after all”.

Kirstie typed: “Covid is here to stay, it is one of the many things that may kill us, though quite low down that list, something has to after all.  

“Luckily in the last 150 years we have taken many things off that list, and we’ve added a few.

“Life is like that, but thank God for life,” she added.

Fans were divided by her comments as some claimed other countries had managed to stamp out the spread of the disease.

The figure is a rise on Friday’s 51,870 cases, which was the highest since mid-January. Some 49 deaths were reported on Friday.

On vaccinations, 67,956 people had their first dose on Friday, while 188,976 completed their course.

It brings the total number of people who have had both doses of a COVID-19 vaccine across the UK to 35,732,297 – 67.8% of adults.

The numbers come amid disruption on some parts of the UK’s transport network, with the NHS COVID-19 app alerts leaving some services suspended due to a lack of staff available.

London’s Metropolitan Tube Line has been fully suspended, while the Piccadilly and District Lines face severe delays.

Elsewhere, Sajid Javid revealed he has tested positive for COVID-19, and is now awaiting the results of his confirmatory PCR test.

Mr Javid’s symptoms emerged just three days after he visited a care home in Streatham, south London.

He was there on Tuesday, having earlier been in parliament. He returned to the Commons on Wednesday and spoke about the Health and Care Bill in the afternoon.

Ex-baseball star says LeBron ‘may want to move to China’ in expletive-laden tirade over NBA icon’s police-shooting tweet

Ex-baseball star says LeBron ‘may want to move to China’ in expletive-laden tirade over NBA icon’s police-shooting tweet

NBA legend LeBron James has been savaged online by ex-baseball player Aubrey Huff, who suggested that the LA Lakers star “may want to move to China” after his controversial tweet about a US police shooting.

The abuse comes as part of backlash to a now-deleted tweet James sent out on Wednesday night.

“YOU’RE NEXT #ACCOUNTABILITY,” James wrote next to an hourglass emoji, to caption a photo of Nicholas Reardon, the Columbus Police Department officer who fatally shot 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant while responding to a 911 call.

Video from Reardon’s body camera showed the black teen swinging a knife at a woman before he opened fire. 

LeBron later wiped his incendiary tweet, attempting to explain himself by saying: “I’m so damn tired of seeing Black people killed by police. [And] I took the tweet down because it’s being used to create more hate

“This isn’t about one officer. It’s about the entire system and they always use our words to create more racism. I am so desperate for more ACCOUNTABILITY,” he concluded.

But taking the original demands off the internet and offering an explanation weren’t enough to calm the angry mob, and James has even been attacked by other professional athletes for the outburst.

The now-retired Huff, a two-time World Series champion formerly of the San Francisco Giants, went on a rampage in scathing at Lebron through a barrage of tweets.

WARNING: STRONG LANGUAGE 

“Hey King James, go f*ck yourself for doxing a police officer for just doing his job,” started the first, which has been ‘liked’ by over 21,000 like-minded individuals.

“I’d bet if that was your son about to get stabbed you’d be singing a different tune you piece of sh*t!”

“You’re a huge reason the NBA is down 80% in viewership within the last year,” he claimed.

Attempting to draw attention to LeBron’s hypocrisy in employing a team of private security, Huff insisted that his legacy would become “irrelevant to most all Americans”.

“May want to move to China f*ck stick!,” he advised him.

Digs at LeBron’s intellect were also the order of the day, while Huff questioned Twitter’s creator why James’ name supposedly wasn’t trending but Brett Favre’s was instead, following the Derek Chauvin-related fallout. 

Signing off by poking fun at himself too, Huff suggested that his jersey “just may be more popular than a King James jersey at this point in time.”

“But that ain’t saying much,” he joked, dryly.

Kate Garraway mistakenly told husband Derek Draper ‘may have died’ in hospital mix-up

“I had a lot of sleep and medicine and feeling much better,” she added.

Kate spent Christmas apart from Derek due to coronavirus restrictions.

She continued: “I haven’t been able to see him since Christmas, we’re back into a situation of looking at strangers in masks.

“That’s the situation for everybody at the moment. It’s tough. When you’re someone like him, dealing with a consciousness problem and trying to emerge, I can’t help but fear it’s not helpful.

“There’s no end in sight to that. There’s no one to blame or be angry with. It’s tough.”
