Sylvia Jeffreys, Ben Fordham and Lauren Phillips celebrate Richard Wilkins’ 35 years at Channel Nine

Richard Wilkins’ dearest friends celebrated his 35 years with Channel Nine on Friday.

The veteran entertainment reporter, 67, hosted a poolside party that night at his modern home in Sydney’s Cremorne, with stars including Sylvia Jeffreys, Lauren Phillips, Ben Fordham, Jayne Azzopardi and Tim Gilbert in attendance.

Sylvia and Lauren both took to Instagram to congratulate Richard on his incredible career milestone.

Alongside a group photo from the party, Sylvia, 36, wrote: ‘Dickie is the kind of friend who makes you feel like family. I’m so proud to call him a mate and to celebrate his 35 years at Channel Nine. We love you Dickie Bird.’

Lauren also shared two photos of herself embracing Richard and holding onto a glass of Champagne.

‘My all-time favourite. Celebrating 35 years of this absolute legend at Channel 9. We adore you Dickie xx,’ she gushed.

Jayne shared a close-up shot of the epic cake which featured a photo of Richard in one of his trademark suits on the icing, while Ben, 45, shared two candid shots of himself grabbing hold of Richard’s girlfriend Nicola Dale as she leaned over the pool.

‘Trust me,’ he playfully captioned the photos.

The celebrations come shortly after Richard revealed he was once asked to star in one of Nine’s biggest and most successful shows, Married At First Sight.

Richard said he was offered ‘a lot of zeros’ to star in a celebrity version of the reality TV show.

Celebrities Richard Reid, Yvie Jones, Ash Williams, Tully Smyth, Harry T and Paulini Curuenavuli have all previously been touted as potential stars of a celebrity spin-off of the experiment.

While Richard didn’t rule out an appearance on the show, he did tell radio hosts Ryan ‘Fitzy’ Fitzgerald and Michael ‘Wippa’ Wipfli he had no desire to appear on SAS, Survivor or Love Island.

Richard is currently in a relationship with former air hostess Nicola Dale.

He publicly confirmed their romance back in July 2020, when he shared a cosy photo of the pair to Instagram.

They had just returned from a romantic retreat in Byron Bay, New South Wales.

‘How good are a couple of days of fresh air, clean food and my first ever yoga class!!’ Richard captioned a series of photos, adding a pink love hearts emoji.

Richard and Nicola were caught kissing by the paparazzi in June 2020.

They were reportedly introduced by mutual friend Ben Fordham at a party earlier that year.

    EMILY PRESCOTT: Row at Prince George’s school over royal bodyguards blocking the pavements

    Hell hath no fury like a yummy mummy scorned! Parents and locals who use Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s £24,000-a-year South London school are fuming at the bodyguards who do the royal school run, complaining that they block pavements and keep their engines running when they drop the pair off.

    One parent complained online that the security detail ‘regularly park, blocking off the dropped kerb, which forces pedestrians out into the road to get past. I don’t know how wheelchair users manage to cross. They are an absolute nightmare!’

    Another said they complained directly to bodyguards about keeping the engines of their hybrid vehicles running when they dropped off the youngsters and were told: ‘We need to charge the battery.’ ‘I personally think that the royal children’s mother, who possibly knows nothing about it, should be alerted,’ another grumbled.

    Kensington Palace said it did not comment on security matters.

    The sister of controversial Topshop tycoon Philip Green has written a script about being a ‘black sheep’ in her family – and is looking for cash to make it into a film.

    Elizabeth Green last week showed possible investors a 20-minute concept film about growing up in her brother’s shadow, in the hope of winning funding.

    It’s based on her memoir Not In The Script, in which she revealed she wasn’t even invited to her brother’s wedding. Don’t suppose she’s counting on a contribution from him!

    The Duchess of York is no stranger to setting up businesses. Now I can reveal she’s getting into the trendy but volatile market for NFTs – ‘non-fungible tokens’ that prove ownership of digital files.

    Her company, called Librasol after her star sign, will deal in her art. ‘It’s going to be things like her pictures, photographs and drawings,’ says a source close to Fergie, 62.

    She’s the first royal to venture into NFTs, with the source adding: ‘She’s always been creative.’ Her first NFTs are expected on sale in the next few months, with some proceeds going to refugees via her charity, Sarah’s Trust.

    MAFS Jackson Lonie is brutally trolled on Instagram after he cheated on his girlfriend Olivia Frazer

    Married At First Sight’s Jackson Lonie has been brutally trolled on Instagram after he was busted kissing another woman on Friday.

    A video of Jackson locking lips with aspiring TikTok star Han Hughes in a nightclub went viral on Saturday.

    Fans have flocked to social media to criticise the 30-year-old’s behaviour, with one writing: ‘You seemed like a faithful person unfortunately you’re not.’

    ‘I see you kissed another women,’ another one said. ‘Who were you kissing last night bro?’ a third questioned.

    ‘Boy you’re in trouble,’ another person said.

    ‘Sorry but Jackson has really changed not the guy he seemed to be in the first week of MAFS changed for the worse,’ one commented.

    Jackson was caught on camera passionately kissing another woman during a wild night out with the boys at a bar called Lava Lounge in Melbourne on Friday.

    Footage shared to Facebook shows Jackson tongue kissing a brunette bombshell Han Hughes for some time.

    A devastated Olivia told Daily Mail Australia on Saturday she’s ‘speechless’.

    In the footage, Jackson is seen embracing the 20-year-old, who showed off her curves in a tight-fitting black mini dress and clutched a blue cocktail.

    He then goes in for the kiss before another woman runs up to Han and taps her on the shoulder.

    Olivia was with Jackson earlier in the night and went home to bed before her beau headed off to party with his friends, including fellow MAFS groom Anthony Cincotta.

    The blonde beauty shared a loved-up photo with Jackson on the night to her Instagram Stories, looking gorgeous in a yellow frock and unable to wipe the smile off her face.

    Martine McCutcheon reveals her former Diet Coke addiction left other mother’s ‘absolutely disgusted’

    She’s recently shown off her incredible weight loss.

    And Martine McCutcheon has revealed that before she embraced a healthier lifestyle, she found herself drinking eight cans of Diet Coke a day.

    The actress, 46, confessed she was addicted to the fizzy drink leading her to be judged by other mother’s at the school gate.

    ‘I’d wake up then be walking my seven-year-old into the playground with a can of Diet Coke and the mothers looked at me disgusted, absolutely disgusted — ‘She’s not got her posh coffee cup, she’s rocked up with a Diet Coke.

    ‘I was drinking it at that time of day and even before I went to bed. I always had a can next to me. I loved that little buzz it gave me.’

    Sugar and caffeine within fizzy drinks can became addictive as each can contains around 34.5mg, the equivalent of half a cup of instant coffee.

    This can be addictive and trigger withdrawal symptoms, such as headaches, insomnia and fatigue, even within just a few days.

    But fizzy drinks often contain phosphoric acid, the ingredient that gives them their appealing tangy taste and ‘tingle’. In large amounts, this can affect skin and muscles, and even damage the heart and kidneys over time.

    Luckily the former soap star managed to kick the habit and even told the Gavin and Stacey star that she is now considering returning to the limelight after taking time off to raise seven-year-old son Rafferty.

    Martine, who shares the youngster with her husband Jack McManus, 37 said: ‘I took time out of the industry because my priority was to become a mother. It took a lot longer than I thought . . . I had a lot of problems keeping babies.

    ‘The fluffy world of t*ts and teeth didn’t matter any more. There was a far bigger lesson to be learned and a far bigger picture to be looked at.’

    Before adding: ‘Now my son is seven I’m still a bit obsessed with being a mum. I still begrudge anything that takes me away from him for longer than a few hours because I’m so in love with him.

    ‘I’m doing a movie, playing the very small part of an ex-ballerina, with John Cleese in Budapest in Hungary this year. I am starting to look at other things too.’

    In February, Martine revealed it has taken her ‘such a long time to do what works for (her)’ as she opened up about her health and staying in shape.

    In an interview with OK! magazine, the Love Actually star noted that she didn’t like to discuss her weight but told how she stays in shape by following the 80/20 rule diet.

    Discussing her frame, Martine told how it hasn’t always been straightforward in finding the right healthy eating lifestyle that works for her, with the star stating how important it is to just be the ‘best version’ of herself.

    She said: ‘I think it takes a long time to work out what your own recipe is. It’s taken me such a long time to look through all the stuff that’s out there, and do just what works for me. So it’s not as simple as just going on a crazy diet. I just feel it’s really important to encourage women to just be the best version of themselves.’

    Detailing her diet, she added: ‘The 80/20 rule is what works for me. For 80% of my week, I will have mainly just healthy proteins, vegetables and fruit, organic and veggie juices, and Flora ProActiv spread. And then I’ll have treats 20% of the time.’

    The mum-of-one also shared that she keeps in shape by walking her dogs everyday after the school run, with the outings good for both ‘my head and my health’.

    On taking cold showers to help with Fibromyalgia, she explained: ‘It’s not every day, but I have one when I can.

    ‘I’ll have a cold shower at the end [of a hot shower] and stay in there as long as I can. It’s really kind of makes me feel like I’ve been WD-40’d.’

    Last year Martine gave an interview to Hello Magazine and spoke about living with Lyme disease, which according to the NHS causes ‘fever, headache, fatigue and a skin rash called erythema migraines’, during the pandemic.

    She told the publication: ‘If you have any underlying illness you can’t take risks.

    ‘As with any chronic condition you can have flare-ups. When I go outside I always have my mask and my gloves and take it very seriously.

    ‘I have been really good emotionally for a long time and I have felt a lot calmer. It has been good to realise it is okay to do things at your own pace.’

    Lyme disease is caused by a bacteria that is transmitted to humans through the bite of infected black-legged ticks that can lead to long term and life changing health conditions.

    Ewan McGregor and Mary Elizabeth Winstead hold hands at Disneyland

    Ewan McGregor and his wife Mary Elizabeth Winstead were pictured attending Disneyland’s Star Wars Celebration event in Anaheim, California on Friday evening.

    The 51-year-old actor and the 37-year-old actress held hands while strolling through from ride-to-ride throughout the beloved theme park.

    The couple’s outing comes just one month after they tied the knot during an intimate wedding ceremony in Los Angeles.

    McGregor wore a dark gray button-up jacket on top of a black t-shirt as he spent time with his wife.

    The Trainspotting star also wore a pair of dark pants and a black cap as he strolled along the park’s walkways.

    Winstead opted for a blue button-up jacket and a pair of slim-fitting black leggings as she enjoyed her husband’s company.

    The Scott Pilgrim vs. the World actress’ gorgeous brunette locks fell towards her shoulders during the event.

    The pair both sported facial coverings to keep themselves safe from COVID-19 during their outing.

    McGregor and Winstead initially met on the set of the third season of Fargo, in which they costarred, in 2017.

    Three years into their relationship, the couple also shared the screen in the 2020 feature Birds of Prey.

    McGregor and Winstead tied the knot during an intimate ceremony that was held last month.

    According to a source who spoke to People, the pair’s ceremony was ‘a small wedding for family and close friends.’

    The insider added that the couple ‘had an outdoor ceremony. It was lovely and joyful…they are an adorable couple.’

    McGregor was previously married to Eve Mavrakis, with whom he tied the knot in 1995. They split in 2017 after 22 years of marriage and their divorce was finalized in August 2020.

    Winstead was also previously married to Riley Stearns, although the two went their separate ways in 2017.

    Rhian Sugden looks unrecognisable as she shares a ‘geeky’ teenage throwback snap

    Rhian Sugden took to Instagram on Saturday to share a throwback snap as she told followers she had gone from ‘geek to glam’.

    The glamour model, 35, reflected on her younger self as she shared a snap from her teenage years, revealing she was 15 at the time of the snap.

    A younger Rhian donned spectacles a sparkling top and gold chains as she wore her hair in bunches for the sweet photograph.

    Besides the early noughties snap, Rhian shared a glamorous shot of herself in the present day.

    Now with contact lenses, the gorgeous star wore a chic ensemble as her luscious locks fell to her shoulders in loose curls.

    Donning a more mature palette of make-up, with a contoured complexion and a stunning blush lip, the television personality accessorised this time with more carefully chosen jewellery.

    In an ode to her younger self she wrote: ‘Shy, insecure, geeky, always seeking approval and incredibly anxious. Nothing like the person I am today.

    ‘I have better hair (thankfully) and finally got my head around using contact lenses.

    ‘My confidence is better, I no longer seek validation, I’m much happier and more content than I’ve ever been’.

    Reflecting on her saucy career path she continued: ‘It’s each to their own and I know my life choices may not be everyone’s cup of tea but I’m so grateful for everything my life has brought me so far.’

    ‘The friends, the relationships, the experiences. The things I’ve learnt and and the person that I’m becoming as I get older.

    ‘If you can’t love yourself how the hell you gonna love somebody else? Also YAY for nerds! (I have to add, I do still love my video games and geeky magazine subscriptions – so that bits not changed at all)’.

    The post comes after Rhian revealed her boobs have grown so big she now suffers from intense back pain and struggles to walk, prompting her bid to get a breast reduction.

    The model told MailOnline her size 34F chest makes it ‘unbearable’ to walk and she’s hired a personal trainer to help improve her ‘hunched over’ posture.

    She said: ‘I have always been quite lucky because my mum is slinky so I’ve got good genes, but all my weight goes to by boobs, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing but right now my boobs are so big that it’s unbearable to walk.

    ‘I just booked a personal trainer because I want to build a bum and some legs. I am like a seven-year-old boy from behind… I’m all up front my bum lets me down.

    ‘I want to go to the gym to sort my posture out because I am hunched over all the time.

    ‘My breasts mean a lot to me but throughout my Page 3 years they were a size 32D and now I’m a 34F. I would love a nice B or C cup that would be my ideal though I’m sure my work would be affected.

    ‘I can’t wear nice outfits, I see these dresses that flat chested women can wear and I can’t go out without a bra on. I’m getting older and gravity is going to kick in any day.

    ‘I’m tempted to get a boob reduction, but I know there can be a lot of scarring. I am going to the personal trainer to shrink my breasts. Watch this space, I’m hoping to be a B cup by next week.’
