Hunger makes people eat their neighbours."For more of the latest showbiz news from Daily Star, make sure you sign up to one of our newsletters here.It comes after Jeremy recently vented his frustration about being refused planning permission to improve his farm.While making an appearance on Talk TV's The News Desk, he discussed the problems he had encountered when trying to add a car park and a farm track to his land.He said: "Maybe I should buy an apron and join the Masons.

X Factor star admits rejecting boss Simon Cowell’s advice made ITV show history
X Factor star who missed out on a spot in the final showed Simon Cowell who was boss when rejecting his advice landed him a charting single - and made show history.Jay James, who made it to the live shows back in 2014, is now the fourth member of iconic band The Overtones, who have sold more than half a million records as a vocal harmony group.Their album Good Ol' Fashioned Love peaked at number 4 in the UK Albums Charts in 2011, and was certified Platinum after sky-high sales.Now Jay and his bandmates Mike Crawshaw and Darren Everest have reflected back on their individual X Factor journeys, going from failed boot camp experiences to appearing on shows like The Xtra Factor and Dancing on Ice as the house band.Jay first auditioned for X Factor in 2014, making the live finals in series 11 mentored by Simon in the Over 26s category. But he wasn't the only one, as the original Overtones line-up - consisting of Darren, Mike, Mark Franks and the late Timmy Matley - also auditioned for the show in 2009 under the name Lexi Joe.They sadly didn't make it past the Boot Camp stage, despite receiving "standing ovations" from audiences.Speaking exclusively to Daily Star, Jay explained that show boss Simon Cowell is "a lot different" in real life than he appears on the programme - but Jay wasn't scared to go against the grain and reject his suggestions.He explained: "My experience of the X Factor and with the early rounds was that I didn’t really want to be anyone other than the person that I was.

Inside Katie Price's ill-fated Eurovision stint after 'rubbish' performance
Katie Price has previously admitted that she was having fun when she attempted to take on the music industry before her Eurovision stint.However, the former Page 3 star had been offered a lucrative recording contract by music industry big wigs if she chose to audition to represent the UK.The reality star last year admitted that she'd love to give Eurovision another go after years of the UK failing to land in the top spot after James Newman's performance led to another "nil points" on the night.As the nation gears up to see where Sam Ryder will place, we take a look at The Pricey's ill-fated attempt.Katie had hoped that her performance would see the prestigious trophy return to Britain in 2005 but, unfortunately for her, she didn't even get to the live final.Her audition for the singing contest has been widely criticised over the years with critics describing it as "memorable", while others claimed that potentially having Katie represent us meant the UK "truly hates itself".Katie's stint came off the back of her successful appearance on ITV's I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!, which opened a whole new world of opportunities for the star who was known as Jordan.There's MUCH more where that came from!

Model Caprice Bourret, 50, terrified she wouldn't survive after fighting brain tumour
Caprice Bourret has opened up on her brain surgery after receiving the all-clear following a five-year scan.The model, 50, suffered from meningioma, a tumour that grows on the membrane covering the brain which was eventually diagnosed as benign.Caprice risked going blind and being left paralysed as the tumour rapidly grew, requiring more than seven hours of surgery that came with its own risks.Now, five years on, the former Dancing On Ice star has revealed that following a recent scan, her tumour has thankfully not returned.Speaking exclusively, she said: "I just had my 5-year scan and everything is all clear!"I was a late bloomer by having kids when I was 40, that is a whole other story – I mean, it was not easy for me to conceive."The mum-of-two continued: "I had to go down this road and fight to have children and then a few years later I had a brain tumour."It was really scary to go into theatre at the time - I didn't know whether I was going to make it."I mean you don't know if the surgery will be successful and anything can go wrong." The businesswoman added: "Then when you wake up you don't know if your right side is going to work - you are doing brain surgery after all."But I just said to myself, we all have unfortunate things happen to us in our lives."We can't control what happens but we can control how we deal with situations and that is how I took control."Caprice went on to say: "I was doing things in my life that were causing a lot of stress so instead of playing the victim card I used the experience of that happening to me to create change in my life, it was a great lesson."The model recently hit out at celebrities who deny having any form of cosmetic enhancements or surgery.She told us: "It is so silly
