Duncan Bannatyne cosies-up to wife Nigora Whitehorn

Duncan Bannatyne and his wife Nigora Whitehorn put on a cosy display as they posed arm-in-arm at Mark’s Club 50th Anniversary Party in London on Thursday.

Dragons’ Den Duncan, 73, cut a dapper figure in a grey double breasted jacket with gold buttons and a pair of khaki trousers.

Nigora, 42, wore a checked pink mini skirt and a matching jacket which she teamed with a pair of fishnet stockings and over-knee boots.

Uzbekistan native Nigora, who is 31 years Duncan’s junior, carried a beige box handbag with her and wore lashings of make-up to highlight her pretty features.

Businessman Duncan proposed to Nigora in 2016 with a £40k ring in Monte Carlo after they first started dating in 2015 when Duncan met her after visiting the dental surgery on London’s Harley Street where she was working in 2014.

The couple married in Portugal in 2017 before jetting off to Croatia to enjoy their honeymoon.

Duncan previously said he fell ‘madly in love’ with Nigora, saying he was ‘obsessed’ with her after they first met.

He told OK! magazine: ‘When I went home I couldn’t stop thinking about her, I felt obsessed! I felt in love with her.’

The couple have previously said they would love to have children together but Nigora admits she isn’t sure it will happen.

She told OK!: I don’t think it’s going to happen. We tried, but I don’t think we are going to have children.

‘We’re not trying to prevent it happening, so if it did, great, but I don’t think it is going to.”

She added: ‘If it’s going to happen, it’s going to happen, but we are not doing anything about it, like IVF, and we are not going to stress about it.’

    Warwick Davis’ daughter Annabelle joins Hollyoaks as Lacey

    Annabelle Davis will be joining Hollyoaks early next year as her character Lacey is set to move to the village with influencer best friend Rayne, played by Jemma Donovan.

    The pair will be moving into a shared house with Romeo (Owen Warner), Prince (Malique Thompson Dwyer), and Nadira (Ashling O’Shea).

    Lacey is fiercely loyal and a great friend who brings the calm and common sense, whilst best friend Rayne brings the chaos.

    Driven, forthright and funny, Lacey is a budding paralegal and will interview for a position at Dee Valley Law, but will she manage to keep her cool when she’s under James’ scrutiny…

    Talking about joining the Channel 4 soap, Annabelle, 25, sais: ‘I’m so excited for you to meet Lacey! She’s fun, career driven, training to be a Lawyer and now looking for a job. Fingers crossed she gets it…

    ‘I’ve had a great time filming with the Hollyoaks gang and look forward to what Lacey gets up too.’

    Annabelle also appeared on This Morning and said: ‘I’ve done a few days filming so far. It’s very different filming a soap to doing films because it’s much faster, whereas there’s lots of time on films between scenes.

    She added: ‘No two days are the same at Hollyoaks’

    Annabelle is best known for her role as ‘Sasha Bellman’ in ‘The Dumping Ground’, and ‘Mims Ufgood’ in the new TV series ‘Willow’.

    In addition, Annabelle is a proud ambassador of Little People UK.

    The actress’ father is tenable star Warwick Davis, who is best known for his role in Harry potter.

    Warwick was born with Spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia congenita (SED), a rare genetic form of dwarfism, which has been inherited by both Annabelle and Harrison.

    Annabelle and her brother Harrison have inherited their father’s condition and are both aspiring actors, having also appeared in Harry Potter.

    Warwick and his ‘soulmate’ Samantha actually met as teenagers on the set of Willow and have been married for 31 years.

    Samantha, aged 16 when they met, and daughter of co-star Peter Burroughs had a role as an extra in the film and the pair fell in love, dating for four years before getting married in 1991.

    Sam has achondroplasia, the most common form of dwarfism.

    Hollyoaks airs every weeknight at 7PM on E4, and 6:30PM on Channel 4

    Derren Brown is selling his stuffed two-headed calf and vast taxidermy collection

    He’s made his name with unsettling and unusual television shows, featuring everything from Russian roulette to a séance.

    So it seems fitting that when Derren Brown has a de-clutter, the results are out of the ordinary, too.

    The illusionist and showman has put a large collection of taxidermy up for auction on Monday, because he is moving house.

    Among the items that must go are stuffed monkeys and puppies, a two-headed calf (listed as a ‘genuine deformity’) and a baby giraffe.

    There is also an ‘arachnid lamb’ with eight legs, a rare French mouse gambling tableau, a pig floating on a balloon, a hanging opossum and an albino wallaby.

    Brown has spoken in interviews about his passion for taxidermy, which began when he was a student.

    ‘I collect ethically sourced stuffed pets and animals that have died in zoos.’

    Over the years he has amassed around 200 items, and every other Sunday goes around the house with a leaf blower, because ‘it’s the only way to get the dust off and stop the moths’.

    Not long ago, he recalled, he got a text “from a guy called Dave”.

    ‘He said: “I’ve got a kiwi, are you interested?” He pulled up and he did, in fact, have a kiwi in the back of his van. But I am really trying to cut down.’

    Last year he moved to the countryside from his house in London, with his partner Justin, and admitted he was starting to find the collection a little disturbing.

    ‘We didn’t have any proper lighting until recently, so you’d be walking past all these dead animals in the dark, which made for quite a creepy environment.’

    Friends say he is moving again, hence the sale, which will take place at Wimbledon Auctions.

    Catherine Zeta-Jones talks surprising husband Michael Douglas during his shoot in France

    Catherine Zeta-Jones did something very sweet for her husband of 22 years, Michael Douglas, this fall.

    Over Thanksgiving the 53-year-old artist – along with their kids Carys, 19, and Dylan, 22 – flew to France where the 78-year-old Wall Street actor was filming an Apple project to surprise him.

    ‘I thought he was going to have a heart attack!’ the Oscar-winning Chicago actress shared while on The Kelly Clarkson Show on Friday.

    During her sit down with Kelly, the siren wore a white shirt with sparkling silver slacks and a matching vest.

    The Traffic star’s long highlighted hair was worn down over her chest in soft waves.

    And she added heavy black eye makeup with purple lipstick for a glam winter face. Her nails were long and a white color.

    Zeta-Jones reveals that while husband Douglas was filming in France, she and her kids decided to fly overseas to surprise him for Thanksgiving, and it was completely unexpected.

    The icon is playing Benjamin Franklin in a new Apple project.

    The synopsis: Explore the story of one of the greatest gambles of Franklin’s career. At age 70, he outmaneuvered British spies and French informers all while engineering the Franco-American alliance of 1778.

    Last week she told People that the family would all be together for Christmas, so there will be no need to surprise Michael then.

    Also during the show Zeta-Jones said she wants to record a Christmas Album With Kelly.

    ‘I’ll come and sing with you any day of the week!’ she offered.

    Being a fellow fan of Christmas, Catherine is ready to make her first holiday album, but she has one condition — Kelly sings with her.

    Zeta-Jones also discussed starring as Morticia Addams in Wednesday.

    ‘I was having such a ball,’ she said.

    ‘If it all ended tomorrow — I had such a great time. Everything else is a bonus.’

    She will also be in National Treasure: Edge of History.

    Jordan Banjo’s pregnant wife Naomi reveals worry over having a C-section again

    Jordan Banjo’s pregnant wife Naomi has revealed her worry over potentially having to have another C-section when she gives birth to her third child.

    The mother-of-two, 30, took to her Instagram on Thursday to discuss her worries after a trip to the hospital – and said her last surgery ‘triggered a lot of trauma’.

    Naomi already shares children Cassius, four, and Mimi, three, with Diversity star Jordan, 29, – but had a tough experience when she delivered Mimi by C-section.

    In her post she told how she felt ‘vulnerable and exposed’ after the procedure with her last child – and ended up getting very ill with sepsis due to ‘shocking after care’ at the hospital.

    She penned: ‘Sorry guys I was in the hospital most of yesterday having my scan and a long appointment regarding my birth.

    ‘Tbh I feel drained and it’s left me so unsure of what to do now considering all the risks. I didn’t have a great time with my c section with Mimi and it’s really freaked me out so was hoping to avoid and have another V birth but now I’m not so sure.

    ‘Do I have any specialists on here in VBAC’s? VBAC Doulas? Private midwives etc? I don’t have a personal midwife at this hospital like I had with the other 2 so I feel so lost and I don’t know who to talk to.

    ‘But I’m really doubting myself and the thought of another C-section is giving me really bad anxiety.’

    She then continued in a second post: ‘Btw FYI- my c section with Mimi was planned – she was sitting breach but it was a very last min plan.

    ‘I’m talking 3 days before it was booked in. I moved house on my own the same week while a Jord was away and I didn’t have chance to speak to anyone, research etc. it was totally taken out of my hands and I had no idea what was going to happen.

    ‘Although everything went fine, it triggered A LOT of trauma and I felt very vulnerable and exposed and I really uncomfortable.

    ‘I was very sick after, I couldn’t hold her because I was numb from my chin and couldn’t feel my arms. And I was left alone for hours and hours. The after care was shocking and I was sent home with 2 paracetamols within 24 hours and then I was on my own with 2 children pretty quickly after that.

    ‘Went on to get sepsis from a water infection a few weeks later and ended up in hospital twice.

    ‘And although things are very different now and I have more physical support around me, the whole thing gives me crazy anxiety and the thought of going through it again makes me cry.’

    On October 27 Jordan revealed his new wife Naomi was pregnant with their third child, two months after they tied the knot.

    Taking to Instagram he shared an adorable shot with Naomi outside their home as their children cradled her baby bump.

    He captioned the shot: ‘TRICK OR TREAT! We’re expecting 2 (more) tiny little feet! baby number 3 due April 2023.’

    The dancer also shared a sweet selfie of the pair holding their sonogram picture as he penned: ‘The Banjo Family is growing even more❤️ Baby number 3 on the way.’

    The pair were immediately flooded with messages from their celebrity pals, with the likes of Oti Mabuse, Helen Flanagan and Danielle Armstrong passing on their congratulations.

    The joyous news comes after the couple tied the knot this August, a year later than planned due to the pandemic.

    Jordan announced his engagement to mother-of-two Naomi in January 2020 when he proposed during a trip to the Maldives after almost five years together.

    Speaking to The Sun he said: ‘Nay loves the idea of Mimi being a little flower girl and Cas being a page boy.

    ‘It will be really nice to have them at the wedding because not everyone has children at the wedding, they normally come after. I’m super excited.

    ‘Everyone in Diversity had kids after they got married, we did that the other way round.’

    Last January Jordan revealed he popped the question to Naomi in the Maldives, six months after welcoming their second child, Mimi.

    In a sweet Instagram post, the dancer and his partner – who also share Cassius – cuddled up to each other at the four-star SAii Lagoon resort as the brunette flashed her diamond engagement ring.

    The couple appeared on cloud nine as they took snaps on the beach, where a fire display with the words: ‘WILL U MARRY ME’ was lit up.

    In another photo, Naomi put her eye-watering band on full display, which was complete with a pear-shaped stone and a sculpted swirl design.

    Street dancer Jordan captioned the images: ‘Well she didn’t say no’, alongside ring and heart emojis.

    The pair were finally one step closer to marriage after Jordan admitted his proposal plans failed twice.

    He told The Sun in April 2019: ‘At this rate we’re going to end up with 13 kids and not going to be married. I was ready to propose when I found out she was pregnant with Cass.

    ‘So I thought, ‘OK, I’ll wait until he’s a little older and then I’ll take Naomi away and surprise her with a proposal’.

    ‘Then when I started thinking about doing it again this year I found out she was pregnant again. Now she’s convinced we’re not going to get married.’

    Jordan and Naomi met at famous Essex nightclub Sugar Hut in 2013, but embarked on a relationship two years later.

    In January 2018, the couple revealed they were expecting their first child together, with the Essex-based beauty admitting she took ‘nine pregnancy tests’ out of shock.

    She told OK! at the time: ‘I wanted to be sure so I went out and bought eight more tests. I sat with them laid out in front of me on the bathroom floor, staring at them in disbelief.

    ‘We always said we wanted kids together, we just didn’t think it would happen this soon. We’re over the moon, though!’

    Eight months after welcoming Cass, the pair announced they were pregnant with their second baby, with their daughter arriving in the July.

    The I’m A Celeb star previously dated Little Mix’s Jesy Nelson from mid 2012 until March 2013.

    Jordan rose to fame in 2009 when he won Britain’s Got Talent with big brother Ashley as part of their dance troupe Diversity.

    Since being in the spotlight, he has hosted the 2013 edition of Got to Dance, participated in I’m A Celeb in 2016 and presented BBC’s The Greatest Dancer with Alesha Dixon.

    Dame Kelly Holmes reveals that she is ‘really, really struggling’ with her mental health

    Dame Kelly Holmes has revealed that she is ‘really, really struggling’ and has been suffering from bad mental health – leaving her unable to do sport for three months.

    The two-time Olympic gold medallist, 52, has been open about her battles with mental health and the pressure she felt on her wellbeing while keeping her sexuality a secret for over 30 years.

    And in recent months Kelly, who is now a panellist on Loose Women, has felt an even greater pressure on her mental health ‘for lots of reasons’ – admitting to her co-stars that she is finding dealing with things very difficult at the moment.

    When asked where stress comes out of her body, Kelly said on the talk show on Friday morning: ‘I think there’s a big correlation between mental wellbeing and physical wellbeing. I get it in cold sores.

    ‘I’ve been really ill this year – everybody has this perception that I’m this Superwoman because of my sporting attributes but no.

    ‘I’ve been really under pressure mentally for lots of reasons and it comes out in my body for sure.

    ‘I’ve had the worst back problems, I was in hospital yesterday having steroid injections in my back. Every illness that’s come out – as soon as I get Covid, I’m ill. I’ve got this chest infection, I’m ill. Cold sores, the lot.

    ‘When people are stressed, by whatever means, it comes out in their physical being.’

    Hosting the panel, Kaye Adams says to Kelly: ‘It must be hard for you though being that you’ve had a lifetime of being perceived as Superwoman, and you probably had taken great pride in your health to a certain extent.’

    Kelly adds: ‘It really affects me, it really affects my mental health.

    ‘Mental health isn’t a buzzword, I’ve been talking about it since 2005.’

    She went on to explain that sport has been her saviour in keeping her wellbeing in check – but because of the stress she has recently felt manifesting itself into ill physical health, she has been unable to keep active for three months.

    ‘My mental health has never been great since I had my first breakdown,’ Kelly detailed.

    ‘And sport or fitness or being active is who I am. I haven’t been able to do it for about three months.

    ‘It really, really affects me.

    ‘You sometimes have to help ourselves, of course we have to find ways to look after our health a bit more, take time off which I’m not good at.

    ‘But yeah, I’m really struggling. I have to say. I’m really, really struggling.’

    It comes two weeks after Kelly admitted that she didn’t know how she would ever meet a lesbian before coming out as gay, and feared potential love interests might ‘want to go public.’

    The athlete, 52, was speaking on Loose Women when she discussed how difficult it was for her to pursue romantic relationships when her sexuality was a closely guarded secret.

    Discussing if you can ever be too in love, Kelly mused: ‘I’ve had different circumstances as I wasn’t out, so my relationships have been…

    ‘I didn’t know how to meet people or how I would ever meet a gay woman as I couldn’t publicly do it.

    In June, Kelly first spoke about her sexuality as she declared she ‘finally felt free’ after years of living a ‘secret’ life.

    The Olympic runner admitted she was ‘fully aware’ of rumours about her sexual orientation but is now happy to be coming out ‘on her own terms’.

    Speaking to the Mirror, she said: ‘There have been lots of dark times where I wished I could scream that I am gay – but I couldn’t.’

    ‘I needed to do this now, for me. It was my decision. I’m nervous about saying it. I feel like I’m going to explode with excitement. Sometimes I cry with relief. The moment this comes out, I’m essentially getting rid of that fear.’

    Dame Kelly confirmed she has a partner but didn’t want to give any further details, admitting it is the first time she hasn’t introduced someone as a ‘friend or PA’.

    She explained how her family and close friends have known for years she is gay but she worried about being in trouble for breaching retrospective rules in the Forces.

    Joe Sugg makes his film debut playing ‘charming’ rat Sardines in The Amazing Maurice

    Watch out — or rather listen out — for dancer, actor and YouTuber Joe Sugg in animated film The Amazing Maurice.

    Sugg plays all-singing, all-dancing, moonwalking rat Sardines, who is in a gang with Maurice, the ginger cat of the title.

    Says Sugg of his character: ‘He’s a charming, old-fashioned, showbiz-inspired rat.’

    The film — in cinemas and on Sky from December 16 — is based on the book by Terry Pratchett.

    Sugg’s venture into the children’s movie world comes after his girlfriend Dianne Buswell revealed she’s keen to start a family.

    The Strictly Come Dancing professional – who met Joe when she was partnered with him during the 2018 series – told Women’s Health last year that it was her ‘dream’ for the pair to have children.

    The couple confirmed they were living together in August 2019 and bought a house together in February 2021.

    She told the publication: ‘Joe is the most supportive person… I’d love to have a family one day, and I know Joe would love a family too. That would be our dream one day.’

    When asked about marriage by Hello! magazine, she explained: I’m quite an unorganised person actually, Joe and I don’t really talk about that kind of thing.

    ‘We’re both so relaxed so we just play it by ear. We really enjoy each other’s company so much and whatever happens, happens.’

    Dianne also admitted that she is really missing her family in Australia while living in the UK, deeming it the ‘toughest thing’ she has to deal with on a daily basis.

    She previously dated Emmerdale actor Anthony Quinlan, 34, until the pair parted ways in October 2018, after ten months of romance.
