Kirstie Allsopp blasts Channel 5 for still having Covid rules: 'No end to this insanity!'
@Channel5 have different Covid rules to @Channel4. “There is no end to the insanity of the protocols which continue to dominate this industry #genuinemadness."She was joined by her followers and fans, who echoed her sentiments and shared how surprised they were that the virus regulations were still in place. @MerrynSW wrote: “They still have Covid rules?!”Kirstie responded, saying: “So many, you can’t imagine.”@Nickinickster penned: “There shouldn't be any Covid rules anymore.”@Sebserlo wrote: “They still have Covid rules?! How odd!”@Mooanddrew said: “Why do they have any Covid rules at all? They do know that we are just on a level 2. “If, and that is a big if, Covid flares back up, they will not have any additional measures to put into place, except closing altogether.”Kirstie frequently updates her followers on the latest going-ons in her life via Twitter. She took to the opinion-sharing platform late last week to explain how she spotted actor Hugh Grant at the airport, and considered retiring from television as a result. Kirstie penned: "Just saw Hugh Grant at Heathrow. “He looked a good 10 years younger than me, and I bet he’s at least 10 years older, I may have to give up TV."Twitter users flocked to comment on the post, as @gerbil granny commented: "Liked your tweet - but feel the need to clarify that I would NOT like it if you gave up TV!"@Emma Chewter wrote: "You look great, your knowledge, experience and your great sense of humour are far more important for your senior TV career."@Daisygolightly agreed: "Don't even think about it! You keep me sane and optimistic. I'm off work with a hospital procedure at the moment and your shows on catch up are what keeps me going.

Neighbours’ Jackie Woodburne admits 'heartbreaking' and angry farewell to Susan Kennedy
Neighbours was completed - and Jackie Woodburne was heartbroken when the time came to bid her much-loved character Susan a fond farewell.She told in a brand new interview of how she regarded herself as Susan's "guardian" and felt "anger" on learning that the soap had been axed."I’ve lived with her for so long and been through so much with her," an emotional Jackie admitted."I feel like I’ve been her guardian and while she’s been living her life, I’ve kept watch."Feeling like a bereaved parent, she confessed: "I really miss her.""We all felt those five stages of grief – anger, denial, acceptance and the rest – at different times over the last few months," Jackie continued.However the tight-knit team of actors on the soap "helped each other through"."We’re very much an ensemble and there’s no hierarchy on the show," she insisted."That makes for a really strong support network.”It has been just five months since the world learnt that Neighbours would be no more, leaving some fans heartbroken as they felt they had grown up with the characters.Many even remembered Can't Get You Out of My Head star Kylie Minogue's days on the show, before she pursued a musical career full time.Jackie believes some of the younger members of the soap face bleak prospects, claiming that being forced to take side-jobs as waitresses is a "reality" of an acting career in Australia.However, she is looking forward to taking a much-needed break before embarking on her next role.Top of her wishlist is playing an "evil psychopath" - in other words, the polar opposite of her comparatively innocent character Susan.In the meantime, as someone who insists she has never been a "showbizzy" person, she will be taking her time before stepping back on the

'Life's too short!' Jane McDonald on losing love of life Eddie Rothe to cancer
The Mirror.Longing for the pandemic to be over so that she can start to appreciate her blessings again, Jane has vowed to do more travelling.She also reversed the decision she had made in 2021 to retire from performing after realising that packing her life full of work was helping with her grief."It’s been my healer being out with the fans," she subsequently told the world when she appeared as a guest on ITV's Loose Women.The 58-year-old has lamented that she is no longer as young as she once was, but still wants to combine time spent singing with her work on-screen.Her seventh series of Cruising With Jane McDonald recently aired on TV."I am going to dedicate 2023 to more television because I am getting on a bit – I’m not as young as I should be," she joked.The star, who rose to fame in her 30s after appearing on The Cruise in 1998, was left shaken and saddened by Eddie's death.She had been planning a long-term future with the Liquid Gold drummer, only for it to be taken from them when he succumbed to lung cancer last spring.She now feels her future endeavours will be a way to pay tribute to him.Her relationship with Eddie had been a chance at finding happiness with a partner again after her previous ill-fated marriage with a plumber she had met while touring in the Caribbean.After their televised wedding, her then husband Henrik gave up his career to become Jane's manager, which eventually soured the waters between them.Speaking in her autobiography, Riding The Waves: My Story, Jane confessed: "Your manager is your boss and tells you what to do, what to wear and who to be, so our relationship changed."I loved him with all my heart, but felt he had stopped looking at me as a wife.
