EX EastEnder Maisie Smith cuddled up with Strictly Come Dancing pro Kai Widdrington as they headed for dinner in between rehearsals.

The 20-year-old was announced as a last minute replacement for AJ Odudu in the upcoming tour and seems to have built a great relationship with Kai, 26, already.

AJ – who was romantically linked to Kai throughout the series - was forced to pull out after a nasty ankle injury. Masie, who placed second in the competition the year before, was more than happy to fill her shows and has been hard at work over the last week.

'He's incredibly blunt' Piers Morgan's pal Paul McKenna admits they 'didn't always get on'
Piers Morgan and celebrity hypnotist Paul McKenna "didn't always get on", the behavioural scientist has revealed.Speaking exclusively with Express.co.uk, the best-selling author, 58, spoke about hosting the former newspaper editor, 56, on his self-titled podcast; Paul McKenna's Positivity Podcast, while praising the former newsreader for his "honesty" and defending his right to "express" his opinion.Reflecting on how long he's known the outspoken media star for, Paul admitted that they hadn't always seen eye to eye.He said: "Well, I've known Piers for a very long time and I have to say we didn't always get along."But I think he's obviously brilliant at his job."He's a fantastic journalist and broadcaster, he's got amazing charisma," he added.The hypnotist went on to insist that it was impossible for people to not hold an opinion on the former newsreader.Paul explained: "He's one of those people, you either love him or hate him, people can't feel, what's the word? Ambivalent, about Piers."He's an extraordinary character."The author went on to praise the star for his honesty while speaking to him on his podcast.Paul went on: "So the other thing is that he's very honest."And my job is not to sort of catch someone out or anything like that."I, if anything, I'm on their side, I want to show people," he revealed.Last year, the former GMB host walked out of a live broadcast after clashing with weatherman Alex Beresford over Meghan Markle's tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey.Addressing the fall-out, Paul defended the former Life Stories star, adding that he should have been allowed to voice his thoughts on the landmark interview.He said: "So I always say with regard to Piers [is that] he's got a right to have an opinion and

'18 years on telly every day!' Homes Under The Hammer's Martin Roberts slams Strictly snub
Homes Under The Hammer presenter Martin Roberts, 58, was left incensed after he was apparently snubbed by Strictly Come Dancing producers following his pleas to become part of the show’s celebrity line-up.The star felt baffled after the dance competition’s bosses ignored his social media campaign in a bid to join last year’s series, protesting that he should have at least been given a courtesy call due to spending “18 years on telly every day” fronting BBC show Homes Under The Hammer.Speaking about his frustrations in an exclusive interview with Express.co.uk, Martin said: “I’ve wanted to do Strictly for years. “And you just sort of sit there quietly, and you just hope you get the call, and then nothing happens. “And then you see people on there and you think, ‘surely I’m in some kind of category, 18 years on telly every day!’“But there’s this mysterious sort of selection process, nobody really knows how it works.“Like casting of anything, you know, it’s all terribly secretive.”The property expert continued: “Obviously, they’re balancing lots of things and I respect them for that, you know, they've got lots of lots of things to juggle. “But that day, I heard from my agent that they wouldn't even take a Zoom call or a phone call, and I thought, that’s like not even getting over the first hurdle. “So what am I doing that’s so wrong that means I don’t even get a chance to say I’d be quite good at this? “So I was a bit hacked off,” he admitted.The Homes Under The Hammer presenter shared his hopes to join Strictly when he posted a video on Twitter back in June, in view of his 27,000 followers, asking fans to help him out in a campaign to land him a place in the BBC dance competition.However, his pleas fell on deaf ears, as

Seven managers who kept going back to old clubs as Duncan Ferguson begins another Everton spell
Everton icon Duncan Ferguson has been handed the reins on a temporary basis again by Everton after Rafa Benitez was asked earlier this week.The ex-Liverpool boss was finally put out of his misery after a nightmare stint at Goodison Park.And the Goodison hierarchy have turned to Ferguson to boss the team while they search for a permanent replacement for Benitez.This is the second time that Ferguson has in charge of his beloved Everton after the Scot took charge in similar circumstances after Marco Silva was axed during the 2019/20 season.Ferguson isn't the first boss to return to the dugout at the same club though. Here, Daily Star Sport runs the rule over the big Scot and six other managers who had multiple spells at the same club.Ferguson is set to begin his second stint in charge of the Toffees after he was handed the reins by the Everton hierarchy this week.The Scot is an iconic figure at Goodison Park and previously stepped in for four games after Marco Silva was axed back in 2019.During his playing days, Ferguson also enjoyed two spells at the club before he returned to the club, initially on a voluntary basis, after he hung up his boots for good.The late, great Howard Kendall is widely recognised as one of Everton's greatest-ever managers and, like Ferguson, had more than one stint in charge at Goodison Park.Kendall's first stint in the dugout was one of the most successful periods in the Toffees' recent history after guiding the club to two league titles in three years.
