Louise Minchin: BBC star shares injury update after bike accident ‘So glad I am not alone’

Elsewhere, Louise discussed potentially signing up to Strictly Come Dancing following her announcement that she will be leaving BBC Breakfast after 20 years later this year.

During the latest episode of Her Spirit podcast, Louise’s BBC co-star Carol Kirkwood discussed her time on Strictly and went on to urge the former to sign up.

The host has always said she’s been on a “lifetime ban” to do the show, until recently.

The mum-of-two revealed: “What I’m more worried about is that the other day on [BBC] Breakfast, Dan [Walker] mentioned it and I said the line I’ve said for many years Carol, that, ‘I’m on a lifetime ban from my family’.

“And my husband texts me and he goes, ‘Ban lifted’.”

‘So excited’ Anton du Beke speaks out on replacing Bruno Tonioli as judge on Strictly 2021

“Darlings I’m kidding, I’m kidding!

“Seriously though, I have to tell you, Anton IS Mr Strictly and if anybody is filling in for me, it has to be him.

“I honestly wouldn’t have it any other way and I am so excited to see him waggle his paddle.”

Anton has been on Strictly since its first ever episode and he initially went for Len Goodman’s job but missed out, as Shirley was announced to be taking over the head judge role. 

When Dame Darcey Bussell quit the show, it was reported he applied to join the panel again but was also turned down.

‘So out of touch’: Elderly billionaire Real Madrid president Perez claims young people shun football and ‘in 2024 we are all dead’

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has been slammed for being “so out of touch” following comments made in an interview on Spanish television attempting to justify the creation of the controversial new European Super League.

Speaking on the hugely-popular El Chiringuito show, the elderly billionaire stated that the LaLiga champions are financially “ruined” after losing $ 482 million over the past two seasons, while $ 6 billion has been lost collectively between the 12 founding outfits.

Claiming that the move is being made in a bid “to save football at this critical moment”, Perez just as outlandishly said that that “young people are no longer interested in football”, putting forward ideas to shorten 90-minute matches in order to keep their attention. 

“Audiences are decreasing and rights are decreasing and something had to be done. We are all ruined. Television has to change so we can adapt,” Perez insisted.

In Perez’s view, the younger generation are tuning out “because there are a lot of poor quality games and they are not interested – they have other platforms on which to distract themselves.”

In response to reforms to its flagship club competition passed by UEFA on Monday, Perez argued: “If we continue with the Champions League, there is less and less interest and then it’s over.

“The new format, which starts in 2024, is absurd. In 2024 we are all dead.

“When you have no income other than television, you say that the solution is to make more attractive matches that fans from all over the world can see with all the big clubs, and we came to the conclusion that if instead of having a Champions League we have a Super League, we would be able to alleviate what we have lost.”

Reacting on Twitter, the majority of fans were against the ESL, calling Perez “out of touch” for spouting “so much nonsense” and “utter drivel”.

“What young people is he speaking to?” one asked, while a critic noted: “He is doing the ‘millennials killed insert business’ stuff.”

Another wondered: “Is he just burning down the house at this point for fun and thinking it’s a blaze of glory?”

“Legacy fans are stuck in the past, future fans are simple-minded with a short attention span, and managers and players are irrelevant and obsequious to the slave God, Money? What’s the goal here?”

Elsewhere, it has been claimed by a couple of different outlets that some of the founding clubs are getting cold feet already. 

“Two English clubs are close to losing their nerve,” wrote a journalist from the Mail on Sunday, while another from Sky said that there are now “strong differences of opinion emerging in private between breakaway clubs”.

There is reportedly a feeling from some “nervous” and “disappointed” execs that they are “being hung out to dry”, and that the project and its resulting furor are not what they signed up for.

By contrast, the BBC claimed that “there is no weakening of resolve within the six English clubs who have signed up to ESL”, as the plans have “been thought through and will benefit the game as a whole”, with bosses “waiting for the storm to die down”.

In the Premier League, Everton have released one of the strongest-worded statements yet in criticism of the developments, saying that those behind it were “betraying the majority of football supporters across our country and beyond” while demonstrating “preposterous arrogance”.

“Six clubs acting entirely in their own interests. Six clubs tarnishing the reputation of our league and the game,” it scathed, addressing its domestic rivals who have opted to join the ESL.

Trying to lighten the mood, Wolverhampton Wanderers have altered their Twitter bio to imagine an edition of the English top flight that they would have won had the six ESL clubs gone through with their plan before then. “Probably too late for a parade,” they admitted.

Hailey Baldwin Admits Viral TikTok That Called Her Out As ‘Not Nice’ Made Her ‘So Upset’

During a conversation about mental health, Hailey Baldwin opened up about how a viral TikTok video about her took a toll on her.

A former restaurant hostess who once served Hailey Baldwin[1] claimed that the supermodel was “not nice” as a customer. The accusation was made on TikTok during summer 2020, and the woman’s video quickly went viral. Hailey apologized for her behavior at the time, but spoke out more about the situation while discussing mental health with Dr. Jessica Clemons on YouTube.

“When I saw her video, I was so upset,” Hailey admitted. “There’s never an excuse for being rude. I felt bad that that was her experience with me, but it made me kind of frustrated because you never know what someone’s going through. I remember going through times in my life where I was so sad and so heartbroken, that, like, engaging with people felt hard for me.”

Hailey has been open in the past about how comments on social media have taken a toll on her mental health, and has mostly learned how to rise above the trolls. However, this video stuck with her. “I wish I didn’t act that way towards her,” she added. “I’m a human and I made a mistake and I acted in a way that was out of character for me. I acted a way that I don’t want to be. I’m trying to do better every single day. I want to continue to grow as a person. I’m open to people correcting me.”

In the TikTok video, which received millions of views, the restaurant hostess said, “This is going to be controversial. I’ve met [Hailey] a handful of times and every time she was not nice. I really wanna like her but I have to give her a 3.5 out of 10. Sorry!” Like millions of others, Hailey caught wind at the video of the time, and popped into the comments section to apologize. “Just came across this video and wanted to say so sorry if I’ve ever given you bad vibes or a bad attitude,” she wrote. “That’s never my intention.” The woman accepted Hailey’s apology and praised her for taking accountability.

Of course, Hailey’s husband[2]Justin Bieber[3], is also no stranger to trolls, either. During part one of Hailey’s chat with Dr. Clemons, which dropped on March 31, Hailey opened up about how the singer has helped her deal[4] with online hate. She revealed that Justin pushed her to limit using Instagram and Twitter to avoid hateful comments. “I really give him credit,” Hailey gushed. “He’s been doing this so much longer at this really massive level.”
