‘Got permission’ Vera star details ‘special’ moment on set with Brenda Blethyn

Filming for series 12 Vera is currently well underway, as leading Brenda Blethyn and her sidekick Kenny Doughty have been spotted on set. The cast have also teased ITV fans with snippets of what goes on behind the scenes, as they eagerly wait for the show to wrap up filming.

The director of the murder mystery drama has also shared some snaps of the cast and crew’s antics on set.

In his latest social media post, director Khurrum posted a photograph of himself standing next to DCI Stanhope’s iconic Land Rover.

“Got special permission from DCI Vera Stanhope to sit in her legendary Land Rover,” the director wrote.

DCI Stanhope’s Land Rover is probably just as iconic as the leading lady herself, as she and Aiden Healy are often spotted filming in it.

However, in a recent interview, the 76-year-old admitted show bosses had to make changes to her beloved vehicle.

“Oh, isn’t it lovely that car, it’s a Land Rover Discovery. I absolutely love driving it, I really, really do,” Brenda told Graham Norton in his podcast.

“They had to put an extra step on the side for me to get in and out because I fly out as if I’m coming out of a shoot, I get in and out so quickly but because of that, they added the step.”

In another post, Khurrum paid a sweet tribute to Brenda as he confirmed filming for an episode had been wrapped up.

The director shared a sweet snap of the cast as he sat on the iconic sofa in the police station.

Khurrum was all smiles as he posed with Brenda, Kenny, Riley, Jon Morrison, who plays Kenny Lockhart and Ibinabo Jack, who plays the role of Jac Williams.

“And that’s a wrap. What an incredible journey,” the director penned referencing the end of an episode.

“Thank you to my entire cast and crew. “And of course, a huge thank you to the legendary @BrendaBlethyn and @kennydoughty.”

He went on to add: “I can’t wait to share the episode.” (sic)

Filming for series 12 for Vera is expected to wrap up in autumn, however, fans are still eagerly waiting for the final episodes of series 11 to play out.

Last year, filming for the latest series was put on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic.

However, when it was safe to resume filming, the cast and crew returned to the set.

The delays also meant that show bosses had to spread out when the episodes would air.

The first two instalments of the ITV series aired last year, with the second two following shortly after in the New Year.

Fans expected the remaining episodes to follow, however, they have been kept waiting ever since.

The final two instalments are expected to be shown later this year, although, bosses have yet to confirm when.

    Love Island reunion 2022: Laura Whitmore puts on a leggy display in fuchsia pink dress

    It’s been nearly a week since Love Island came to a spectacular end at the live final which saw Ekin-Su Culculoglu and Davide Sanclimenti.

    And Laura Whitmore dazzled as she hosted the 2022 Love Island 2022 reunion on Sunday.

    The presenter, 37, wowed in the fuchsia pink strappy dress, which was paired with colourful platform heels.

    Her tresses were styled in a 60s-inspired half updo and she sported a radiant palette of make-up.

    On Monday, Ekin-Su and her partner Davide were crowned as the Love Island 2022 champions and took home the £50,000 cash prize.

    The smitten couple have since bid farewell to Mallorca and touched down back in the UK on Wednesday morning, where they reunited with their loved ones.

    Since her win, a source told MailOnline she’s already being inundated with lucrative offers, meaning she could surpass multi-millionaire Molly-Mae Hague, 23, who was runner-up on the 2019 series, to become the show’s richest ever star.

    Ekin-Su, who entered the villa on the third day as a bombshell, has already had a taste of the spotlight, and the brunette is now set to cash in with an estimated £1million payday.

    A source close to Ekin-Su told MailOnline: ‘We’ve never seen the likes of the deals that are already coming through the door. It’s not just your typical reality TV fodder.

    ‘She’s absolutely inundated with lucrative offers from brands and they’re prepared to pay big money to get her onboard. She’s going to be the new Molly-Mae Hague!’

    Charlotte McKinney flaunts her toned legs and taut torso in the Italian sun with her boyfriend

    Charlotte McKinney and her boyfriend Nathan Kotechko turned up the heat on Sunday.

    The model, 28, and her tattoo artist beau, 38, spent time poolside and at the beach in Positano, Italy, lounging in the sun and splashing in the waves.

    At one point the model recruited her other half to shoot some sensuous photos of her.

    She used a sunbed to create a series of provocative poses as she lay on a blue and white striped towel.

    The cover model styled her blonde locks in a bun as her heavily tattooed partner captured the shots on their SLR camera.

    Charlotte let her hair down as she and Nathan headed for a dip in the ocean.

    The artist was seen floating on his back, enjoying the warm waters of the Mediterranean, as his girlfriend swam nearby.

    The Baywatch actress launched her modeling career using Instagram.

    The Orlando, Florida native dropped out of high school at 17.

    She has described herself as ‘a curvier bombshell with big boobs,’ and had a difficult time finding an agent, so decided to use the social media platform to share her portfolio.

    She is best known for starring in a Carl’s Junior Super Bowl ad in 2015.

    Since then, she has modeled for a variety of lines and has created paid partnerships on social media.

    The Italian trip appears to be a working vacation for the busy influencer.

    Recent posts indicate she was invited to attend the Jennifer Lopez concert for UNICEF in Capri last week.

    She has also been sharing modeling photos on a near daily basis during while on the trip.

    Charlotte has tried her hand at stand-up comedy several times.

    She decided to give it a try after being encouraged by David Spade, whom she acted alongside in Joe Dirt 2: Beautiful Loser.

    David, 58, and fellow comedian Whitney Cummings, 39, fed her lines for her first attempt at comedy, but she has posted other routines that may have been her own material. Her latest attempt can be seen on her Instagram feed.

    BBC backlash as fans slam Countryfile and Springwatch over lack of ‘representation’

    In a recent poll, it revealed that many people who live in agricultural areas were not happy with certain shows that air on the BBC. They fumed that it was not accurately portraying how people live in the countryside.

    Programmes such as Countryfile, Springwatch, Autumnwatch and even long-running radio drama The Archers all came under fire in the poll.

    Members of Countryside Alliance were less than impressed with the programmes that are all hosted by Chris Packham.

    In the past, the 61-year has revealed he doesn’t favour certain countryside sports, including fox hunting and badger culling.

    Regarding the shows Springwatch and Autumnwatch, as many as 90 percent of people who took part in the survey did not believe that the representation of country life was realistic.

    89 percent of people felt as though Countryfile wasn’t focusing on certain issues that was of importance to a rural viewing audience.

    Rural listeners of the BBC Radio 4 drama The Archers branded it a “contemporary drama in a rural setting”.

    Two-thirds of The Countryside Alliance want to see the BBC licence fee scrapped and programmes made for the countryside, not just programmes about it, according to The Telegraph.

    People who took part in the survey also favoured seeing more TV shows dedicated to rural sports, farming, and conservation and land management.

    Findings from the poll conducted by The Countryside Alliance, which was made up by people 65 and older, will be given to the BBC as part of a “rural impartiality dossier”.

    Discussing the survey, Chief Executive of the alliance Tim Bonner, said: “The BBC must appreciate that the minority rural audience does not feel fully represented.

    “There is a desire for rural programming for the countryside, not just about the countryside.”

    Tim continued to the Telegraph: “In short, rural programming should not only take into account what urban viewers may find of interest, and it needs to showcase the value of important rural activities like farming, shooting, hunting and angling

    “Before the new poll came to light, some viewers had already complained that Countryfile was being “biased and unfair” on matters such as Brexit, farming, fox hunting and the environment.

    A BBC spokesperson said: “We always welcome feedback and we’re very proud of the range of programming we provide.

    “Programmes such as Countryfile and Farming Today cover a range of topics and views when reporting on farming and rural life across the UK as well as within our news coverage.

    “As part of ongoing work to ensure the highest editorial standards across all our output, Countryfile is one of many programmes to be reviewed – it has not been selected because of any particular impartiality concerns.”

    Millie Mackintosh enjoys a family trip to Devon with husband Hugo Taylor and their two children

    She recently returned from a trip to Corfu for best friend Binky Felstead’s wedding.

    And Millie Mackintosh was making the most of some quality family time as she enjoyed a staycation in Devon with her brood on Sunday.

    The Made In Chelsea star, 33, took to her Instagram to share a slew of snaps from her getaway in Salcombe, including a short video showing the highlights.

    The mother-of-two was joined on the trip by her husband Hugo Taylor and their daughters Sienna, two, and Aurelia, nine months.

    The family all beamed for the camera as they lounged on a sofa with their two children sat on their knees wearing matching yellow outfits.

    Millie and Hugo couldn’t contain their smiles as they both rocked sunglasses while posing for a selfie with Sienna.

    The former reality star also shared a snap of Hugo soaking up the sun on a boat while donning a pair of blue shorts and a grey T-shirt.

    The family enjoyed walks on the beach, splashing in the sea and even gave fans a glimpse of the food they enjoyed.

    Millie looked sensational as she flashed her toned physique in a cream crop top and white maxi skirt which she teamed with a pair of matching sandals and a large woven beach bag.

    She styled her long blonde tresses poker straight as she posed up a storm for a mirror selfie in a lift.

    She captioned the gallery of snaps: ‘A delightful few days in Devon @harbour_beachclub #staycation #familyholiday’.

    Millie was no doubt pleased to spend some quality family time with her children after she and Hugo jetted to Corfu for Binky’s second wedding to husband Max Darnton in Corfu.

    The weekend before the family had been on the Greek island of Zakynthos where Millie celebrated her 33rd birthday.

    Hugo shared a sweet tribute to his wife of four years as he told how he and their daughters are ‘so lucky’ to have her.

    He wrote in an Instagram post: ‘To the most exquisite, wonderful, sensational and beautiful girl I’ve ever ever known. Happy birthday!

    ‘You do so much for so many people to make them happy. And we are so lucky to have you in our lives. Here’s to another trip around the sun. Yours always. Love ❤️’.

    Millie and Hugo originally dated in 2011 while on Made In Chelsea, but split up when it emerged he had cheated on Millie with Rosie Fortescue.

    They reunited in the second half of 2016 and Hugo proposed during a holiday in Mykonos, Greece, in July 2017.

    She was previously married to musician Professor Green, real name Stephen Manderson, in September 2013.

    The couple announced their split in February 2016 after two-and-a-half years of marriage and finalised their divorce in May 2016 – the same week that Millie went public with Hugo during a trip to Monaco.

    Gordon Ramsay mocks Jamie Oliver in cheeky clip as he shoves fellow chef’s book down his pants

    Gordon Ramsay showed off his cheeky side as he mocked fellow celebrity chef Jamie Oliver in an amusing Instagram video on Sunday.

    The F Word star Gordon, 55, shared a comment from a social media user which read: ‘I bet you are one of those chefs that just steal other people’s recipes.’

    Pointing at himself before wagging his finger and mouthing ‘no, no, no,’ Gordon was then seen spinning around to reveal Jamie’s 2004 book Jamie’s Dinners tucked in to the back of his jeans.

    He captioned his post: ‘When you let @tillyramsay do your social media. Kid….my secrets out!!’

    In 2020, Australian chef Mitch Orr accused Gordon of ‘stealing’ one of his signature dishes.

    At the time, the outspoken British chef uploaded a video to Instagram of himself making a Vietnamese braised pork carbonara served with an egg yolk.

    Mitch claimed the recipe was an exact replica of his one of his dishes – macaroni, pig’s head and egg yolk – once served at his former Sydney restaurant ACME.

    He commented on Gordon’s post, saying: ‘Looks familiar mate,’ which instantly drew support from the hospitality industry.

    Mitch said that while chefs and cooks don’t own recipes, it is ‘standard etiquette to give credit where credit is due’.

    ‘Gordon is one of the biggest chefs in the world with over 9 million followers on social media – the right thing to do is to credit where the inspiration for the dish came from,’ told Emerald City.

    It comes after Gordon received criticism last week after a viral TikTok video showed him climbing into a pen of lambs while saying: ‘I’m going to eat you! Yummy, yum, yum, yum, yum.’

    As the lambs cheerfully trotted over to greet him, he asked: ‘Which one’s going into the oven first?’, before pointing at one and declaring: ‘You!’

    Finally, Gordon called out: ‘Oven time’ as he crept up to the frightened baby animals.

    The TV star captioned his upload: ‘The Lamb sauce was still not found in the making of this video…..’

    TikTok users were quick to comment, with one insisting: ‘Ok I am not a vegan or vegetarian but that crosses the line,’ with another joking: ‘Don’t play with your food, Gordon.’

    ‘Gordon please leave them alone find the lamb sauce, not the lamb,’ begged one person who viewed the video.

    Someone else wrote: ‘Alright I think Gordon has finally lost it. Someone do something before it’s to late,’ while another commented: ‘Gordon I think you need a break from tiktok.’

    Many users asked if his video was to goad TikToker That Vegan Teacher, with one stating: ‘Gordon about to be main villain in vegan teacher stories.’

    ‘Is this your response to the vegan teacher?’ asked someone else

    Self-proclaimed animal activist Kadie Karen Diekmeyer became a TikTok sensation as That Vegan Teacher after going viral for her videos that promote a vegan lifestyle.

    In 2021, Gordon was called out for his love of meat by the vegan TikToker, who sang ‘Eating animals is wrong, Gordon Ramsay / Hurting animals is wrong, Gordon Ramsay / And if you call me a ‘donut,’ that’s fine, as long as you’re vegan from now on.’

    In a viral video response, the celebrity chef addressed the drama by eating a burger on camera and calling Kadie a ‘vegan donut’ while nodding along to her song.

    ‘Beef burgers were consumed while making this TikTok’ he captioned the video and later posted the video on his Instagram account, adding: ‘It’s an honour a song was written about me….and now back to my beef burger.’

    Amanda Holden enjoys a boogie with her lookalike daughters Lexi and Hollie, 10, in Sicily

    She’s been enjoying a holiday-filled summer with her two daughters and husband Chris Hughes.

    And taking to TikTok on Saturday, Amanda Holden enjoyed a boogie in Sicily as she danced jokingly alongside her daughters Lexi, 16, and Hollie, 10, with the trio bearing a striking resemblance.

    The family were joined by Alan Carr, who she’s currently filming a new show with in the Mediterranean island, and a group of others for the video.

    Amanda donned a white sundress with a v-neckline, cut out and spaghetti strap design for the video, while her blonde locks were left down in a soft curl.

    Lexi also sported a white dress with a puff sleeve design, giggling for the playful video.

    While Hollie stood beside Alan, with Amanda’s mum holding on to the youngster as it appeared to be a family affair.

    For one video, the camera began on her as she danced towards it, before panning to the group – where Alan, Hollie and Lexi all showed off their skills.

    While another displayed the Chatty Man as the centre dancer, before panning to Amanda and her daughters who danced side by side.

    The Britain’s Got Talent judge captioned the video: ‘Fornite moves in sicily’.

    Amanda has been keeping her 1.8M Instagram followers updated with family snaps throughout their getaway, as she mixes some work with holiday time.

    She and Alan are currently filming a BBC property show together – where they renovate a house in Italy for the new programme.

    With her family joining her on this trip of filming, it comes after she enjoyed a trip to Greece with them – sharing a slew of sun-soaked shots.
