But the bunch of soon-to-be reality stars have received backlash, with many fans disappointed at the lack of ‘body diversity’’

In light of  the official announcement of the line-up on Twitter, plenty of viewers piped up to express their annoyance over the physiques of the new Islanders.

One complained: ‘I was honestly expecting this year to be more natural and diverse but I was wrong ,’ while another remarked: ‘Yeah so much for ‘body diversity’ .’

Meanwhile, star of  Love Island series two, Malin, 26, was sure to give her two cents on the matter.

Sharing a snapshot in which she can be seen baring her round bottom in a tiny green bikini, the reality star sassily wrote: ‘Here’s a teeny bit of diversity for ya. Love me x.’

Even ex Islander Alexandra Cane, 27, who shared a fleeting romance with Dr. Alex George in the iconic Spanish villa last year, made a dig at the new cast member’s figures, Tweeting: ‘Where the curvy girls at? ,’ in response to the show’s promo video.

It had been speculated that plus-sized model Jada Sezer would be jetting off to Majorca for the award winning programme.

Many fans went on to slate the fact that pharmacist Anna Vakili seems to be the ‘curviest’ girl in the line-up.

One social media user wrote: ‘why is love island’s definition of plus size someone who’s still really slim but has larger boobs and a bigger bum,’ while actress Jameela Jamil, 33, added: ‘The producers of Love Island think this slim woman counts as their new token “plus size” contestant? Are they drunk?’

Meanwhile, series two star Kady McDermott, 23, hit back at Jameela’s Tweet, replying with: ‘Who even said she was the plus size contestant? Maybe we shouldn’t be labelling women as anything and just letting them be who they are. Skinny/slim/curvy/obese who cares.’

Other contestants soon to be hitting our screens include sexy surfer Lucie Donlan, glam airhostess Amy Hart and brother of heavyweight boxer Tyson Fury, Tommy.

Kit Harington has checked into a luxury rehab after the finale of Game of Thrones ‘hit him hard’.

The 32-year-old actor – played Jon Snow throughout the eight seasons of the HBO series – was ‘exhausted’ and has spent the past month at the luxury Connecticut health retreat Privé-Swiss, where he is being ‘treated for stress and alcohol’.

His representative told Page Six: ‘Kit has decided to utilise this break in his schedule as an opportunity to spend some time at a wellness retreat to work on some personal issues.’

It is believed that Kit arrived there a few weeks before the Game of Thrones finale was aired on TV and he has been undergoing psychological coaching, practicing mindful meditation and cognitive behavioural therapy to combat stress and deal with negative emotions.

Page Six reports that it costs $120,000 (£94,788) a month and his wife Rose Leslie is said to be ‘extremely supportive’ at this moment.

Kit has previously spoken about the toll starring as a main character in Game of Thrones took on his mental health.

At the end of series five, Jon Snow had been left for dead with fans desperate to know whether he’d be back for series six or not.

Recalling the moment, Kit told Variety: ‘When you become the cliffhanger of a TV show, and a TV show probably at the height of its power, the focus on you is f**king terrifying.

‘You get people shouting at you on the street, “Are you dead?” At the same time you have to have this appearance.

‘All of your neuroses, and I’m as neurotic as any actor, get heightened with that level of focus.’

He continued: ‘It wasn’t a very good time in my life. I felt I had to feel that I was the most fortunate person in the world, when actually, I felt very vulnerable.

‘I had a shaky time in my life around there, like I think a lot of people do in their 20s. That was a time when I started therapy, and started talking to people.

‘I had felt very unsafe, and I wasn’t talking to anyone. I had to feel very grateful for what I have, but I felt incredibly concerned about whether I could even f**king act.’

Piers Morgan distracts fans with THIS gross thing captured on his idyllic snap

The Good Morning Britain host is being ridiculed over “gross” body part…

Piers Morgan

Piers Morgan couldn’t resist sharing a snap of himself holding a glass of wine in an idyllic location but his gloating unexpectedly grossed fans out.

The journalist turned TV presenter uploaded a snap of himself holding a glass of wine and simply captioned it ‘Sante!’ as he shared a view of the scenery as he enjoys his holiday in Saint-Tropez, France.

In taking a break from filming Good Morning Britain, Piers is currently being covered by host Richard Madeley, but fans were quick to spot something gross in Piers’ idyllic snap as his thumb appeared to be a unsightly colour and looked all battered around the nail.

One fan wrote, ‘That thumb is too distracting, I’m sorry!’ which prompted Piers to reply, ‘Haha it’s the filter relax.’

But that didn’t stop a flurry of responses from people who were equally put off by the look of his thumb.

One wrote, ‘What actually happened to that thumb? Um, nice view…but that thumb????’, another said, ‘Sorry @piersmorgan I just can’t see past that thumb.’ 

Another congratulated the star on his latest Piers Morgan Life Stories, telling him, ‘Well deserved after a quite brilliant interview with Mel B’ to which Piers replied, ‘Thanks mate, much appreciated.

And as Piers Morgan Life Stories continue, he revealed on his Instagram that the legendary presenter Sir Michael Parkinson would be his next guest. He wrote, ‘*COMING ON SATURDAY* Finally, I get the great man into MY chair. Delighted to confirm that Sir Michael Parkinson is my next Life Stories guest. Airs on Saturday, ITV, 10pm – and it’s brilliant. #Parky #LifeStories’

Piers also recently celebrated his dad’s birthday and paid tribute to the man who “gave me the following brilliant advice: ‘Always be polite to policemen and always buy the best French wine you can afford…’” before adding ‘Just a shame he’s a Spurs Fan.’

‘This Morning Live’, NEC Birmingham, UK – 17 May 2019

Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield, who holiday together as well as work together, have made the most of the school holidays by taking their families to Portugal for the week.

Holly Willoughby and Philip Schofield

But judging by Phil’s social media, the pair have been getting themselves into all sorts of mischief as always.

Holly and Phil seem to be making the most of their break from This Morning hosting duties by heading out for a well-earned night out.

But judging by Phil’s string of SnapChat videos documenting their night on the town, it seems the pair might have indulged in a bit too much sangria.

In the first clip the duo are talking about taking an unexplained charity bear out with them on their night out… ‘I’ve got the bear, I’ve got the bear, do not let me lose the bear!’ Phil told fans.

To which Holly replied: ‘Do not lose the bear. I’m not in control of the bear!’

Then later in the night, clearly after a few more drinks, Phil filmed the pair of them trying to negotiate their way home in the dark.

After he helped Holly find her shoe as she lost it in the darkness, he confessed to fans that they were totally lost and having trouble finding their hotel.

Phil then went on to film Holly, who was walking ahead of him and calling out for her husband in the dark.

They even had a hairy moment where they had to sober up enough to walk along a narrow bridge with no sides, with Phil filming the entire thing for his followers.

Thankfully the pair appeared to make it across the bridge unscathed, which is good because they are back on the This Morning sofa next week.

Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes are currently covering for Holly and Phil while they enjoy the Portuguese sunshine.

The married couple usually present This Morning on a Friday, as well as a round up of the week’s best bits on a Sunday morning.

Adding a touch of boldness, the Essex girl paired the outfit with a bright white blazer with the word ‘honest’ printed on it in big black lettering.

This comes after fans of Dani and her ex boyfriend Jack accused the former barmaid of exchanging messages with Sammy before things had ended with Jack.

One social media user speculated: ‘Everyone was like jack is going to move on the quickest but dani saying she loves him after 2 weeks of splitting with Jack. I say she was texting him while with jack and he found out hence why they split.’

However, Dani swiftly hit back at the claims, penning: ‘I’m gonna lose my s***. I don’t text people when I’m with someone. Bore off you no nothing,’ in a now deleted Tweet.

Despite the drama surrounding their budding relationship, Dani and Sammy have been exposing their romance more and more, posting an increasing amount of loved up snaps.

Taking to Instagram, Essex lad Sammy uploaded a sweet snap in which Dani can be seen perched on his lap.

Beside the photo, Sammy defiantly penned: ‘pinions ain’t facts take them in and let them go……’

Many fans quickly chimed in with supportive comments, with one writing: ‘Ignore the haters, love you guys glad yous are happy ❤,’ and another adding: ‘

#couplegoals❤ love you guys.’

Love Island 2019’s Amber Gill denies she’s racist after deleting post saying she ‘doesn’t like black guys’

The beauty therapist’s Instagram post resurfaced this week

Love Island's Amber Gill

Love Island newbie Amber Gill has denied she’s racist after being forced to delete a post saying she ‘doesn’t like black guys’.

Love Island's Amber Gill

Shortly after the fresh crop of Love Island contestants had been confirmed, one of 21-year-old Amber’s controversial old posts resurfaced.

The beauty therapist, whose dad is from Trinidad and Tobago, had shared an image of a black man talking to her in a club, as she’s sticking her finger up at the camera while looking just past his shoulder.

Quoting the man chatting to her, Amber wrote on the Insta snap: ‘I seen you staring at me all night (sic).’

She replied, ‘First of all I don’t like black guys X.’

The Newcastle native added at the bottom of the photo: ‘Look at my face you know I’m about to boot off.’

Addressing the since-deleted post, a representative for Amber denied she’s racist and explained why they took it down.

‘We deleted the post as it was being taken out of context in regards to what happened,’ they said.

They added to Mirror Online: ‘The guy was pestering Amber all evening and she said he was old enough to be her dad, so was referring to “I don’t date black guys” because he reminded her of her own father.

‘The next part of her story stated this, but as the whole thing was being taken out of context we simply deleted it.’

The rep went on: ‘Obviously she’s not racist – her own father is from Trinidad and Tobago. She just didn’t want to date someone that looked the double of her dad.’

Ahead of going into the villa, Amber was asked what type of guys she does usually go for – and she said athletic men who spend a lot of time on their bodies.

‘I like tall guys who are muscly and athletic, I like people who go to the gym because that’s what I like.

‘I want someone who is funny and that I can have fun with and doesn’t take themselves too seriously because I am daft. Looking at my past relationships, I don’t really have a type, it’s quite broad. If someone catches my eye then I’ll go for them.’

Amber will be joining the likes of Tyson Fury’s brother Tommy, the brother of Strictly’s AJ Pritchard and surfer Lucie Donlan.

“Game of Thrones” Star Kit Harington (Jon Snow) Reportedly Checked Into Rehab for Alcohol & Stress

Game of Thrones star Kit Harington has reportedly checked himself into rehab for issues related to stress and alcohol.

According to Page Six, Harington—who played Jon Snow on the hit HBO series for eight years—secretly checked into the Privé-Swiss luxury rehab center in Connecticut ahead of the show’s series finale, which aired on May 19th and “really hit him hard,” multiple sources said.

The report states that Harington has been undergoing “psychological coaching, practicing mindful meditation and cognitive behavioral therapy to combat stress and deal with negative emotions” at the high-end facility, which costs over $120,000 a month.

The British actor’s wife, fellow GoT star Rose Leslie (who played Jon Snow’s Wildling companion Ygritte) has reportedly been “extremely supportive” throughout his treatment.

More via Page Six:

A friend told Page Six of Harington, “The end of ‘GoT’ really hit Kit hard …

“He realized ‘this is it — this is the end’, it was something they had all worked so hard on for so many years. He had a moment of, what next?

“He’s in the clinic predominantly for stress and exhaustion and also alcohol. His wife Rose is being extremely supportive. Everyone close to him really wanted him to get some rest. Right now, he just needs peace and quiet.”

After eight seasons following his character Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen on their separate journeys, then finally as a couple, in the final episode, “GoT” fans saw Jon stab Dany – the woman he loves – to death in the heart to save the realm. The episode broke TV records, with 19.3 million viewers tuning in.

A “GoT” behind-the-scenes documentary titled “The Last Watch” released at the time of the finale showed Harington breaking down in tears and holding his hand to his mouth in horror at the moment he first learned his character would kill Dany.

The actor became totally choked up during a table read with the entire cast, where the actors were led through the finale script for the first time by show creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.

Harington later said of that emotional moment, “I was very shocked and surprised at certain events,” during a “Late Show with Jimmy Fallon” appearance, “and then I blubbed my eyes out. I cried.”

The actor has been allowed the freedom to leave the facility for breaks over the past month and has been seen by locals in Connecticut heading to a fitness and wellness studio, plus a local book store.

On the same weekend of the “GoT” finale, he was spotted at RJ Julia Booksellers in the small town of Madison, Conn., telling staff he was on “holiday” in the area, according to local reports.

One resident who has repeatedly seen the actor in recent weeks on his trips out of the facility told us, “Kit looks really good and appears to be very focused on his health and wellness.

“I have personally seen him out in the community many times. I think it’s wonderful that he is taking time to take care of himself – more people should.”

Harington has been open about his struggle as the show turned him into a huge international star and admits he sought therapy after learning Jon would kill Daenerys.

He recently told Variety his lowest and “darkest” point came as he became the focus of the show as Jon was killed and then came back to life.

“It wasn’t a very good time in my life,” he said. “I felt I had to feel that I was the most fortunate person in the world when actually, I felt very vulnerable. I had a shaky time in my life around there — like I think a lot of people do in their 20s.”

“My darkest period was when the show seemed to become so much about Jon when he died and came back,” he explained. “I really didn’t like the focus of the whole show coming onto Jon.

“When you become the cliffhanger of a TV show, and a TV show probably at the height of its power, the focus on you is f**king terrifying.

“That was a time when I started therapy and started talking to people,” he said, “I had felt very unsafe, and I wasn’t talking to anyone.”

He also told Esquire in April that he had a “full-on breakdown” after filming his final scenes for “GoT” and that he felt he was “being skinned” taking off his Jon Snow costume.

“My final day of shooting, I felt fine … I felt fine … I felt fine … then I went to do my last shots and started hyperventilating a bit …Then they called ‘wrap’ and I just f**king broke down. It was this onslaught of relief and grief about not being able to do this again.”

He added, “But the weirdest bit was when we came off set and they started taking the costume off and it felt like being skinned … It felt like they were unceremoniously for the last time ripping off this character.”

We can imagine that being a part of a huge show like Game of Thrones for so long has its pros and cons … and now that it’s over, we’re sure it’s a bittersweet moment for the entire cast.

Hopefully, Kit Harington is getting the help that he needs and comes out of this stronger than ever!

#LivingWhileBlack: Lawmakers Are Pushing to Make It Illegal for White People to Call the Police on Black People for Existing

Attention all BBQ Beckys, Permit Pattys and Cornerstore Carolines: You’re officially on notice.

That’s right, after a year in which several high-profile cases spawned by white people calling the police on black people for doing ordinary things like, barbecuing in a park, selling bottled water or walking by a white woman in a convenience store, certain municipalities are fed up with the waste of public resources and the unwanted national media attention.

The Los Angeles Times has a thorough report that notes that Grand Rapids, Michigan, which had a #LivingWhileBlack incident of its own, is the latest city to join the fight against white people who use the police as their own personal form of harassment.

The city recently introduced legislation that would fine those who place racially motivated phone calls against their neighbors and fellow citizens.

A proposed ordinance would make it a “criminal misdemeanor to racially profile people of color for participating in their lives” and subject people behind those 911 calls to a $500 fine.

“A policy like this makes it so people have to think about whether their decision to call 911 is grounded in something significant,” said Senita Lenear, a Grand Rapids city commissioner who is the first black person in her position. “Our resources can’t be wasted on police addressing nonissues. You can’t ignore that people of color are the ones who have been victimized…. That is a part of a pattern.”

Did y’all catch that? Senita Lenear, as a black woman, is the one advancing our agenda and our cause. This is why when we tell y’all black asses to get out and vote, we mean it.

More representation means our interests are better heard and laws that are designed to protect us stand a chance of being openly discussed, debated and voted on.

Because police departments are a local government service, we likely won’t see a federal rule across the board, so expect to see more and more cities and states following in Grand Rapids footsteps as they attempt to swat down Permit Patty and her kin.

Similar legislation to the Grand Rapids one is already popping up in Oregon and New York State.

One person who’s not jumping up and down for joy in Grand Rapids though is interim police chief, David Kiddle. He declined to formally take a position on the ordinance, according to the LA Times. I bet you can’t guess his race?

“I look forward to the community and stakeholders having the opportunity to weigh in and discuss the proposed ordinance and I look forward to working with the city as it moves forward,” he said.

Uh huh. OK.

He’s looking forward to this ordinance becoming law about as much as Stevie J looks forward to a child support payment. Come on now.
