‘I plan for a year without Big Brother,’ he explained.

‘I never say never because the world is constantly changing, and I think it would be irresponsible to not keep all options open, but at the moment I’m planning for a year without Big Brother.’

Frow argued that the channel has to ‘free up the schedule’ and ‘open it up to try new ideas’.

He also confessed that he was left ‘bloody furious’ when Stormy Daniels pulled out of this series of CBB at the last minute after building the show’s first week around her.

Meanwhile news that Big Brother might not return has received a mixed response from fans.

Former winner Brian Belo has been supportive of the idea, having tweeted: ‘This is a good thing! They don’t know how to look after the show!

‘Before being a housemate in 2007, I was an ardent-fan of Big Brother since season 1. And their appeasing the casual viewer on Ch5, the real fans have not been looked after at all’

Another agreed: ‘Please get rid of this cr*p !!!’

However, loyal fans are hoping that it doesn’t get axed.

‘Please keep big brother on TV because I look forward to watching it in the summer time and because I love it,’ one tweeted, whilst another said: ‘they need to see their ratings have increased since this show! and it makes me laugh so much at all the so called haters who are watching the show! well I’m so loving #CBB’

It comes as the current series of Celebrity Big Brother continues to face backlash over various scandals.

The show received over 1,000 Ofcom complaints in just the first three days after Rodrigo Alves used the n-word twice – and was given a verbal warning rather than being evicted from the house.

Meanwhile this week many fans vowed to boycott the programme when Natalie Nunn went on a HUGE rant about the other housemates, with some viewers accusing her of bullying.

Katie Price and Kieran Hayler might have parted ways but Kieran is said to be getting worried about the glamour model over her ‘erratic’ behaviour.

The 31-year-old reportedly became concerned about Katie, 40, after she apparently gave him their children Jett, 5, and Bunny, 4, so that she could suddenly go away.

This comes after she was pictured looking close to a mystery man on a night out in Essex this week.

In the photos the mum-of-five coud be seen seemingly holding hands with an unknown companion as they left a pub in the early hours of the morning.

The snaps were said to have left Katie’s boyfriend Kris Boyson fuming and Kieran seems to have had a similar reaction.

‘Kieran is furious at Katie – he thinks she’s going off the rails with all these nights out and mystery men,’ a source told The Sun. ‘She’s behaving really erratically – she asked him to pick up the kids a day early as she’s going away – she didn’t say where or when she’d be back.

‘He’s really annoyed at her but also worried as it’s all very unlike her.’

Katie and Kieran’s split was revealed in May following months of ups and downs in their marriage and it quickly became very bitter, with Katie accusing him of cheating on her again after he was unfaithful on previous occasions.

The Loose Women star wasn’t single for long and started dating personal trainer Kris, 29, but it sounds like there could be trouble between them over her recent night out.

‘She’s trying to brush it off as letting her hair down at a stressful time, but Kris is furious’, a source said.

‘Kris is super healthy and clean living and he doesn’t like when Katie gets drunk and out of control.

‘Katie hates men telling her what to do so she’s equally upset at him trying to control her. Things are very tense.’

This only adds to the dramas in Katie’s personal life right now, with the TV star battling money woes after narrowly avoiding being declared bankrupt earlier this month. She now has three months to come up with a plan to pay off her huge debts.

Here’s hoping things start looking up for Pricey soon!

Holly Willoughby ‘frontrunner’ to replace Ant McPartlin on I’m A Celebrity – but only on this condition!

Will Holly be heading Down Under?

Holly Willoughby on ‘This Morning’ TV show, London 20 February 2018

With Ant McPartlin announcing that he won’t be returning to I’m A Celebrity this year, speculation has been rife as to who will be replacing him.

And after ITV announced the news that Declan Donnelly WILL be joined by a co-host when the show returns in the Autumn, Holly Willoughby has now become the frontrunner.

According to reports, the presenter is in ‘secret talks’ to front the popular telly program – but only if ITV can find someone to cover her spot on This Morning next to Phillip Schofield.

‘Holly is far and away the front-runner and talks are at an advanced stage,’ a source told The Sun.

‘Not only is she loved by ITV bosses and the nation, but she is also one of Ant’s closest friends. Flying the flag for him in his absence means the world to her.’

I'm A Celebrity Ant McPartlin

But there’s also another problem, as it’s unclear whether the 37-year-old could face leaving behind her family for the four-week stint Down Under.

Doting mum Holly – who is currently on a six week break from her presenting duties on This Morning – shares children Harry, Belle and Chester, with husband Dan Baldwin and the whole family recently enjoyed some much-needed quality time together on holiday in Portugal.

Family… ❤

A post shared by Holly Willoughby (@hollywilloughby) on

Meanwhile, it’s not just Holly who’s in the frame to step up to the I’m A Celeb plate, as comedienne Julia Morris – who hosts the Australian version of the show – also caught the eye of fans this week.

After a montage of the hilarious ways she’s introduced herself on the programme went viral, fans went wild and many called for Julia to take on the role.

This comes after ITV confirmed that they will get a new host in to present the upcoming series of I’m A Celeb following Ant’s drink driving charge earlier this year.

ITV chief Kevin Lygo revealed at The Edinburgh International Television Festival yesterday: ‘The good news is he’s [Ant is] doing well, he’s doing everything he should be doing to get better.

‘We collectively thought let’s give it a good enough time off because this thing is a slow procedure so that’s what we’ve decided to do.

‘He’s not going to go to the jungle but Dec is, we’ll find someone to go with Dec.’

We can’t wait to find out who’ll be joining Dec on the show!

Liam Payne reveals truth behind Cheryl split as he opens up about heartbreak for the first time

Liam has hinted at problems in his relationship

Cheryl Liam Payne
A furious Cheryl blasts claims that her loved-up night at The BRITS with Liam Payne was a ‘stunt’ as ‘ludicrous’ in a Twitter rant after the event.

After announcing their shock split last month, now Liam Payne has seemingly given us an insight into the breakdown of his relationship with Cheryl Cole.

Cheryl Cole and Liam Payne

The pair – who share one-year-old baby Bear – called it quits after two years together, but have kept fairly quiet about what actually went down between them.

READ MORE CELEBRITY NEWS

But in a brand new four track EP, 24-year-old Liam has given us a glimpse behind closed doors, and even hinted it was Chez who called time on their romance.

In ballad Depend On It, the former One Direction star seems to suggest he wasn’t ready to let go of 35-year-old Cheryl.

The lyrics read: ‘We used to be lovin’, touchin’ , kissin’, f***in’, like our lives depend on it. How we get to lyin’, cryin’, always fightin’, like our lives depend on it.’

More: Awkward! Liam Payne reveals details about his SEX life as he moves on from Cheryl

Seemingly suggesting he tried to make their romance work, Liam hints at rows between the pair as the song continues: ‘Oh there you go putting words in my mouth/ it’s about to go down/ I’m not ready yet/ there’s still a thread left.

‘If I could just hold on/ onto unraveling hope/ give it one last go/ I don’t know why just need us to try.’

Date night 😏

A post shared by Cheryl (@cherylofficial) on

This comes after Chez and Liam announced their split with matching statements on Twitter in July.

The statements read: ‘We are sad to announce that we are going our separate ways. It’s been a tough decision for us to make.

‘We still have so much love for each other as a family. Bear is our world and we ask that you respect his privacy as we navigate our way through this together.’

But Liam’s final track on the EP – called Slow – suggests he knew things were over ‘months ago’, as he sings: ‘Know this is done I, will turn a blind eye/ Don’t tell me goodnight, cos’ it means goodbye.

‘Know that we’re broken, know this was over months ago/ Got me pretending you ain’t done with us/ you got me running round the obvious…

‘I know that you’re mind is already made up/ but give me one more night before we give up.’ Hmm…

Meanwhile, Liam has seemingly been enjoying his newly found single status as the dad-of-one has been caught getting very cosy with a whole load of ladies over the past two weeks – including stunning model Cairo Dwek.

We guess we’ll have to wait for the album release to find out what’s really going on in Liam’s love life…

Mark Wright on ‘This Morning’ TV show, London 24 August 2018

Mark Wright has divided viewers during his first time hosting This Morning – but wife Michelle Keegan made it clear that she loved it.

Michelle, 31, revealed that she was watching the show earlier today when she filmed her hubby on the TV screen and added a supportive message.

‘Go on @Wrighty_,’ the actress captioned the footage on Instagram Stories. ‘You got this!’

And to show her affection even more, Michelle then zoomed in on Mark’s face with the love filter.

Awww.

Meanwhile Mark, 31, couldn’t resist mentioning his other half whilst presenting the programme with Mollie King and admitted that they’ve already discussed baby names, despite not planning on a family just yet.

‘We are not trying for kids, me and my wife yet, I must say that, but we do talk about kids’ names all the time,’ he confessed during a debate about renaming children.

The former TOWIE star also brought up the topic of babies again whilst chatting to The One Show host Alex Jones.

‘You do sometimes think, “When are you going to have time to have kids, when will that be?”’ he said. ‘Me and my wife, we both do really want to have kids.’

Mark was clearly keen to get involved on the show and appeared to be enjoying himself, but viewers were split over his debut.

Some were unsure about the former reality star, with several accusing him of mispronouncing words.

‘Mark needs to get a grasp of the English language . How can you mispronounce the word “incident” when reading it from a cue card ?’ one watcher tweeted, whilst another said: ‘Sorry had to give up on today’s show..can’t listen to Mark Wright stumbling over his diction, stroking his beard, staring into space or looking faux concerned.’

Ouch. Fortunately plenty of fans enjoyed watching him and Mollie though, with one writing: ‘@thismorning @MarkWright_ Clearly we need Mark Wright as a presenter over this side of the pond not lose him to the USA. He’s a natural!’

‘Mark Wright doing an excellent job of presenting. So natural and professional. Well done to both,’ a fellow admirer added.

It comes after This Morning welcomed a variety of new hosts over the summer, with others to take the reigns including Gok Wan, Dr Ranj Singh and Sara Cox.

And with the Loose Women star’s money woes coming to light in recent weeks – after she narrowly avoided bankruptcy – it’s also thought that the mum-of-five has shacked up with Kris at his house in Kent.

According to reports, Katie now spends some of the week living at her beau’s pad – which is around 60 miles away from her home – as she’s ‘desperate’ to get away amid her messy divorce with Kieran.

‘Katie was in desperate need of a change of scenery, so spending more time at Kris’ was the obvious choice’, a source told The Sun.

Let’s hope Pricey manages to sort things out with her new beau.

Celebrity Big Brother 2018: Fans left ‘uncomfortable’ as Dan Osborne makes Gabby Allen confession

Some viewers found the whole thing awkward…

Gabby and Dan.

Celebrity Big Brother has only been on for a mere week and already we’ve seen more drama than an episode of EastEnders.

While Bad Girls Club’s Natalie Nunn managed to get herself into another argument, the scandal surrounding Dan Osborne and Gabby Allen took centre stage again during last night’s show.

READ MORE CELEBRITY NEWS

In case you missed it, earlier this year former TOWIE star Dan was alleged to have had an affair with Gabby while he was estranged from his wife, Jacqueline Jossa after snaps of them getting cosy on a yacht emerged.

But the reality star pair have always been clear that this is definitely not the case and they’re just friends.

Dan Osborne and Gabby Allen

But while chatting to pals Ryan Thomas and Jermaine Pennant, dad-of-three Dan was forced to defend himself once again as he opened up about the speculation.

‘Everyone in the house sees we are just mates,’ the 27-year-old said. ‘But if anything it makes us look more guilty, and those pictures.’

He then confessed: ‘We are just mates – but I just f**k around too much. I don’t know what to do with myself.’

Later in the show, Dan spoke to Gabby, 26, one-to-one, admitting: ‘We are mates, it’s sweet but the banter makes it worse. It’s a joke.’

When the Love Island babe then admitted she gets ‘really paranoid’ about spending time with him, he said: ‘Me and you get on better than anyone else in here.

‘It looks worse if we try to avoid each other.’

But despite the pair’s honesty, it looks like viewers are totally divided by Dan’s confession, with one writing on Twitter: ‘Tbf this Dan & Gabby situation makes me feel uncomfortable.. #CBB’. 

While another said: ‘Seeing Dan flirting with Gabby like that kind of makes me feel a bit awkward   #CBBUK’. 

However, a third added: ‘I honestly believe Gabby and Dan are just mates and always have been. I don’t think they would be this comfortable if that wasn’t the case… #CBB’.

And they weren’t the only ones divided…

Meanwhile, Essex reality star Dan also opened up about his kids on last night’s show, admitting he was struggling to deal with the lack of contact with Teddy, four, Ella, three, and two-month-old Mia.

‘I miss them calling me daddy and just the little things, cuddling up to them and stuff like playing’, he said in the Diary Room.

I am so lucky!! 💙💗💗💙🌎

A post shared by Dan Osborne (@danosborneofficial) on

‘I feel stupid it’s only day five and I miss them, I’m just used to having them with me.

Hinting he’s still living with wife Jacqueline, he added: ‘Every day I have my girls and if I have a few hours spare I will drive to my boy, who is like an hour away and I will just go and see him.’

Annie Are You OK? Taraji P. Henson Compares Herself to Michael Jackson in Hilarious Makeup Selfie

When Taraji P. Henson shared a post-makeup selfie on Instagram on Wednesday (Aug. 22), fans (like me) immediately noticed something was “different.” She looked like Michael Jackson!

I’m not sure if it was the hair, the makeup, the lighting, her eyes, or a combination of all four, but she looks VERY King of Pop-ish in this photo.

Instagram Photo

Fortunately, Taraji thought the same thing, hence her hilarious caption:

“Uuuuuuummmmmm kinda Trippy NO? Hair and make up is something huh? I think it’s the lighting. If not I was supposed to be the 6th of the 5.”

It’s good to see Taraji can laugh at herself. She even took some time to laugh at some of the comments on her post:

Of course, 50 Cent, the internet’s most notorious troll, also chimed in:

Instagram Photo

And comedian DC Young Fly roasted her as well, telling her to “bring [her] Michael Jackson looking a** here girl”:

Instagram Photo

Meanwhile, Taraji’s makeup artist, Ashunta Sheriff, was NOT here for the jokes and slander against her work, and she let that be known via her own Instagram post:

“Today I got roasted by social media @theshaderoom @dcyoungfly and fans let me have it and even told @tarajiphenson to fire me… well same hair and makeup same day in these two pictures but let me explain to the novice #makeupartist out here in the social media world. Lighting makes a major difference in how your makeup appears.

“Taraji has a yellow undertone and in her trailer the lights are fluorescent. Where as in the #makeuptrailer the lights are natural light bulbs. Anyone who is a pro knows that fluorescent lighting will turn your skintone green and make you appear ashy.

“I’ve done Tarajis makeup for many many years in fact many celebrities and I was reluctant to address this but I decided it was necessary to teach you novice makeup artist and people who don’t know lighting whatsoever that it does affect how your makeup looks. Furthermore makeup for TV, red carpet, editorial, film etc are all different mediums and makeup reads differently depending on the format used, cameras, lighting, background, hair color, clothing etc.

“I’ve been doing this over 20 years so imma say this don’t come for my job or my talent cause the work speaks for itself. I’m so damn tired of people throwing stones and don’t even understand the technicalities involved when it comes to #makeup #hair or #fashion and be so quick to judge people’s work without knowing all the technicalities involved.

“We all have bad days but just so you trolls know this wasn’t one of them. Judge my work when you stand next to her in public and if she look ashy or green then come get at ya girl… f#&? Outta here… but @dcyoungfly you were funny we did laugh and thanks for treating the queen with #respect #tarajiphenson #KnowYourSh$$1st #clownasspeople #socialmediaamesssometimes #doyouhaveacareerNadontthinkso #20plusyearsinthegame #googlemebitches #blessed”
