"Its animal figure often said to resemble those of Hieronymus Bosch, the Tiled Field is a work of about 1924 by what Catalan painter?" the host asked. The two men immediately turned to each other to dicuss possible answers, completely dismisisng Sheriff's attempt to help work it out. As Sheriff interjected, Mays and Jackson continued to talk over her before giving their answer - on one occasion seeing them get the question wrong.

'A career low' Piers Morgan recalls locking lips with Peter Andre on Good Morning Britain
Piers Morgan, 56, has had a very successful career.There have been more ups and downs than a rollercoaster, with the TV star being no stranger to controversy.And in his latest column for The Sun, the former Good Morning Britain presenter opened up about a moment on the show that he deemed a "career low".In the quick-fire round of his piece where readers get to know quirky facts about him, Piers covered an exchange that will stick in his mind forever.Discussing his "worst celebrity kiss", he penned: "Peter Andre snogging me live on Good Morning Britain was a career low."And while many may believe that quitting the programme may have been the point that he hit rock bottom, they would be wrong.Piers left ITV in March over his comments on Meghan Markle’s tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey.It led to 50,000 complaints to Ofcom and Piers ended up storming off the GMB set after a heated discussion with Alex Beresford, although Ofcom later found the comments did not breach its rules.But despite the dramatics surrounding his exit from GMB, he's set to return in the spring on new channel talkTV, which will broadcast in the UK, Australia and the US.In an interview with BBC's Sophie Raworth about his upcoming show, he said: "I am launching a new global daily TV show for Rupert Murdoch’s news corporation in America, starting in the spring.He explained that it will include opinion, debate and big interviews, saying: "It will air daily in the UK, daily in the US and in Australia daily as well so I will be a tri-continental irritant which is something I have been aspiring to be for quite some time."Its going to be opinion, debate, big interviews, so if you’ve missed me on morning TV, I’m sorry but I’ll be back very soon."A post shared

However, by the next photo update, captioned "Jet Lag Diaries", Daisy had stripped out of her black and red dress to become entirely naked.Fans bombarded her comments section with love-heart emojis, demanding to know where was next on her list and asking if she would check out LA and Big Sur.Others recommended she check out the legendary hotel's pool.Supercoops29 enquired on whether there was still a "groovy fountain in the men's loo" only for Daisy to laughingly reply: "I wouldn't know."Some praised the nude image, amid walls decorated with roses, as "a work of art", with theonejt78 branding her "the most stunning woman alive".However when jaked1976 enquired of the photo: "What’s the black line that looks like a scar?", he appeared to have Daisy hysterical with laughter.She replied to the comment using the tears of laughter emoji to reveal simply: "It's a scar."Joy_Buckle jumped into the conversation to add: "Scars and smiles. BEAUTIFUL."Besides scars and smiles, however, it seemed to be stars and stripes on the couple's mind as they proceeded to enjoy their American road trip.Meanwhile, Daisy has recently told of how her recently increased body confidence has led her to post photos that she might have hidden from the public before.In the same way she is unconcerned by her scars, she is no longer hiding pictures which show weight gain on her thighs."I am proud of my thicker thighs that have carried me through every day of my life," she revealed on Instagram."I am proud to be a curvy woman.

Lord Sugar reacts to Novak Djokovic's saga after tennis star 'thrown out' of Australia
LORD ALAN SUGAR has applauded the Australian Government’s decision to deport Novak Djokovic after his appeal to remain in the country was overruled. Lord Alan Sugar took to his official Twitter account on Sunday to weigh in on the news of Novak Djokovic’s visa being cancelled for a second time since his arrival in Australia earlier this month.The unvaccinated athlete was set for the upcoming Australian Open tournament but was denied entry at border control after questions were raised regarding the medical exemption he was given before his arrival.A judge ordered his release on January 10 before Immigration Minister Alex Hawke uncovered that the 34-year-old had made several errors in his visa application, subsequently sending him back to a detention hotel.With the ruling of Novak’s deportation, Alan is firmly standing behind the Australian Government’s decision as he hopped onto his Twitter to share his thoughts on the situation."Well done Australia you stuck to your principles and threw Djokovic out,” he wrote in view of his 5.2 million Twitter followers.“No one is bigger than the rules or law.“Hats off to you Oz.”His tweet was met with mixed reactions from fans who felt torn on whether Novak should have been granted the right to stay Down Under despite the circumstances.“I really don’t get these Anti-Vaxers going on about human rights,” said Twitter user @DaveWilson5209.“Each to their own when it comes to getting vaccinated, but the simple fact is.

And as they took his latest edition out for a spin, viewers realised just how passionate he was about motoring itself.As the two gushed over his first edition Pirelli Escort, they decided to take it out for a drive."I've never driven this before," James giggled, as they buckled themselves in."I've never even sat in it!"But as they got going, it was clear to all that it definitely wouldn't be the last time he'd get behind the wheel."When you asked to do this, I thought, 'I haven't got a helicopter, I haven't got these mega cars that you're driving, F5s and stuff like that..." he said to Jodie about his invitation to be on the show."I've just got these."I love these."Jodie grinned as they flew down a forest road: "You've got some beautiful cars and these make you smile, it's just so much fun!"Their topic of conversation moved onto the Pagani Zonda, which, it turned out, James hates more than most things."If you want to be quick, then buy an Audi Etron GT RS, that'd beat a Pagani Zonda any day of the week!"Jodie suddenly began to realise a pattern in his constant bashing of the vehicle, and said: "You just don't like Pagani's, do you?"James quickly interrupted: "I just don't like certain modern supercars."Bit like Ferrari, that ridiculous thing, that stupid one-seater that you have to drive with a helmet on."The reason you have to drive with drive with a helmet on is because you look like a right...

Loose Women's Denise Welch reignites Piers Morgan feud after Covid 'sceptic' claims
Loose Women star Denise Welch, 63, has hit back at Piers Morgan, 56, after she took to Twitter to comment on the controversy surrounding the purported Downing Street lockdown parties. Piers had claimed that the Government’s alleged gatherings that took place during lockdown would make “covid sceptics and anti-lockdowners feel vindicated”.In view of his 7.9 million followers, he typed: “The worst thing about all these illicit Downing Street parties is they will make covid sceptics and anti-lockdowners feel vindicated in their suspicions that the virus was never that dangerous or why would the people running the country all be ignoring the rules so brazenly?”Denise fired back at Piers while sharing a screengrab of his tweet with her 511,000 followers.She penned: “Anti lockdowners are not Covid sceptics Piers.“We are people who knew that such drastic action would cause horrendous collateral damage as it has.“We also knew that Covid, although desperately serious for some, was not to most people as reflected in the [governments] blatant lack of fear.”But Denise’s remarks divided Twitter users, who responded to her tweet with their own arguments.PaulSmith1961 tweeted: “Well said Denise - unfortunately for Piers, he’s always been on the wrong side here - he’s jumped on the righteous bandwagon and recently he’s been trying to get off that horse - good luck with that one.“I’m triple jabbed and that’s a personal choice and the way it should be!”lisaweider said: “My Dad died of Covid.
