Hollyoaks’ Chelsee Healey poses in black lace bra after soap bosses told her off for breaking lockdown rules – The Sun

HOLLYOAKS’ star Chelsee Healey looks hot in a black lace underwear set after coming under fire from Channel 4 bosses for flouting lockdown rules.

The mum of one poured her curves into the lingerie as she posed up a storm at her home in Manchester after she drove 200 miles to see Lauren Goodger’s jailbird ex Jake McLean.

The 31-year-old mum landed herself in hot water after she was snapped outside Jake's home in Essex following a 200 mile journey from her home in Manchester.

Looking glorious in the black underwear, Chelsee captioned the photos: “Feel Good Friday B ✨🌞”

Chelsee’s racy snaps come just weeks after it was revealed Hollyoaks’ bosses hauled the actress in for showdown talks after she broke strict lockdown rules.

The Sun previously revealed the loved up couple made the decision to flout isolation rules that forbid people from travelling to see each other amid the coronavirus crisis.


And her plan to stay incognito backfired with Chelsee, who has played Goldie McQueen in the Channel 4 since 2016, being called in for talks.

An insider told The Sun Online: "Chelsee has been hauled over the coals by Hollyoaks bosses. She had been spoken to by bosses about her behaviour.

"The cast represent the show and in their contract it states they can’t bring the show into disrepute.

"She has broken rules set out by the Prime Minister and they are not happy about it.

They added: "This isn’t a quick visit to a friend's house round the corner she travelled over 200 miles to see a man. They are appalled at her behaviour and are looking into what consequences she is likely to face”.

Chelsee was easily spotted in Essex when she dressed in tight-fitting white trousers and a cut-out top.

The star was desperate to be reunited with Jake – who previously dated Towie stars Lauren and Yazmin Oukhellou.

Sources revealed Chelsee had made the journey to see Jake many times before lockdown and she couldn't bear to be apart from him.

 

An insider revealed: "During lockdown they couldn’t bear to not see each other so she decided to go down for the weekend. It’s early days but she really likes him.”

Jake was jailed for three-and-a-half years for robbing a family at gunpoint just two days before Christmas in 2006.

He dated Lauren for four years from 2012 before splitting for good in 2016 after a series of rows.

Last year he started dating Lauren's close friend Yaz just months after she had split from her longtime boyfriend James Lock.

Spoilers: Yasmeen pleads guilty in Corrie and goes to prison?

Yasmeen Nazir (Shelley King) is currently on remand awaiting trial in Coronation Street, but Alya (Sair Khan) was given reason to be concerned about her gran’s plea at said trial, as she suggested that she might plead guilty to the attack — in spite of the fact that she’s a victim of abuse.

Viewers know that Yasmeen — feeling like a cornered animal during one of Geoff’s abusive tirades — lashed out and hit Geoff with a bottle, before stabbing him.

She was subsequently arrested, before being taken to a cell, and — in spite of Imran’s (Charlie de Melo) attempts to acquire her bail — she’s been held on remand until her trial.

During tonight’s episode, Alya visited Yasmeen in prison — the first time she’s done so — and she wasted little time in informing her gran that as he knows full well of what Geoff was doing to her, and that she’ll do whatever it takes to prove it.

However, Yasmeen wasn’t keen on discussing the matter, commenting that no matter what happened she shouldn’t have reacted in the way that she did.

Alya became worried about Yasmeen’s comments, and asked if she intended to tell everyone in court about the abuse she suffered at Geoff’s hands — but Yasmeen simply responded by telling her that this is her business.

What’s more, as Alya attempted to make her see that she was the victim of abuse, Yasmeen shouted at her before heading back to the cells.

Will Yasmeen plead guilty?

Alya was evidently worried about what Yasmeen might — or might not — do in court, and therefore she’ll no doubt search for some evidence to prove her gran is the victim in all of this.

Coronation Street continues Monday 1 June at 7:30pm on ITV.

Who is on The Graham Norton Show tonight? Lady Gaga, Chris Evans, Michelle Dockery, Josh Gad and Michaela Coel

IT'S Friday and Graham Norton will once again be joined by our favourite stars on his hit chat show on BBC One.

The likes of Lady Gaga and Chris Evans will be chatting about their new projects, but who else will be joining Graham from their homes during lockdown?

Who is on The Graham Norton Show tonight?

The Graham Norton show hits our screens at 10.45pm on BBC One.

Graham's virtual sofa will be filled with A-list celebs once again, first with Lady Gaga who will talk about her new album Chromatica.

Then Chris Evans known for Captain America and Michelle Dockery from Downton Abbey will chat together about their new crime series, Defending Jacob.

Hollywood's Josh Gad who had a part in Frozen will share his latest animated work, Central Park.

Michaela Coel whose most known for Chewing Gum will reveal all about her new role in an upcoming BBC drama I May Destroy You.

At the end of the show Niall Horan, former One Direction, will perform his new single Black and White.

Lady Gaga

Global super star and award-winning performer Lady Gaga will be gracing the chair.

Her latest album Chromatica was released today and can be streamed now – already it has received critical praise.

It's pop-heavy but addresses heavy issues like mental health – something that Lady Gaga has always been open about.

Speaking to Zane Lowe she said: "I think that the beginning of the album really symbolizes, for me, what I would call the beginning of my journey to healing, and what I would hope would be an inspiration for people that are in need of healing through happiness, through dance.”

She reminded her fans that mental health issues are common and don't make you abnormal.

"If you’re listening to this album and you’re suffering in any type of way, just know that that suffering within itself is a sign of your humanity and you are not broken" she added.

Chris Evans

American heartthrob Chris Evans has starred in Captain America and The Avengers.

Tonight he will be talking about his latest job, Defending Jacob – a brand new crime drama series.

Chris produced the series and said it "feels like a natural step in the progression of a film career," as he told The Hollywood Reporter.

Chris stars in the series too, playing Attorney Andy Barber who helps the cops to investigate the murder – except it turns out that the finger is pointing at his son Jacob.

Michelle Dockery

Joining Chris is his co-star Michelle Dockery, who is also a part of the new series Defending Jacob.

Together they will talk about the show and most likely offer a glimpse into it with an exclusive clip.

Michelle is most known for playing Lady Mary Crawley in Downton Abbey, which she won three consecutive Emmy Awards for.

Now she'll be swapping into some modern day clothes to take on a lead role alongside Chris.

When talking about the new show she said it "asks how far you would go for your family".

Josh Gad

Josh Gad is an American actor and comedian most known for voicing the must-loved Olaf in Frozen.

The new series he'll be promoting, Central Park, is an animated story about the famous park's caretakers becoming world saviours with a focus on one family.

Speaking about his new role, Josh said: "Birdie is very different than Olaf.

"Olaf has this innocent naivety. Birdie is more of like a scatological narrator, who is not entirely a dependable narrator."

He recently joked that his daughters are harshly "somewhat over" him being a part of Frozen.

Michaela Coel

Michaela Coel came to our screens through Chewing Gun, the comic series following one woman's experiences of modern life – from dating to getting by.

She's about to comeback with a new series called I may Destroy You, which looks at how a woman is forced to renegotiate her life after being sexually assaulted at a nightclub.

Michaela wrote the script and stars as the lead role.

Speaking about the important themes the series deals with, she said: "The series is about how the personal identity we create in order to understand ourselves as beings in this world, how traumatic events may warp, contort and throw that sense of self into questioning."

Tyga Lost His $2.2 Million Maybach After a String of Bad Financial Decisions

Fans of Keeping Up with the Kardashians may know Tyga as Kylie Jenner’s ex-boyfriend, but he’s much more than that. Not only is he a popular rapper and a TV star, but he’s also been bad with his money.

Like his ex-girlfriend, Tyga likes fast, powerful, and expensive cars, but, unlike his girlfriend, he isn’t as financially successful as Jenner has been. That hasn’t stopped him from living a similar lifestyle like her, but it does mean that he’s had to make some tough financial choices. Here’s a look at how Tyga ended up losing his $2.2 million Maybach. 

A brief look at Tyga’s life and career

I miss life

A post shared by T-Raww (@tyga) on

RELATED: Fans Are Suspicious of Kylie Jenner’s Repeated Accidental Run-Ins With Ex Tyga

Like many hip hop artists, Tyga’s career in the industry started young. In 2008, at the age of 19, his song, “Coconut Juice” debuted, and it featured him and his cousin, Travie McCoy of Gym Class Heroes fame, according to Celebrity Net Worth. This earned him a record deal, but his career didn’t really blow up just yet.

It took him a few more years before he found mainstream success, but he did just that when his song, “Rack City,” debuted. Not long after, he’d start dating a fellow artist, Blac Chyna, and a few years later, the couple separated. Along the way though, Tyga continued making hit songs and his albums continued selling well. 

Then of course, at around 2014, he started dating Jenner, and from there, the media has been all over him and his relationship with the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star. While the two separated in 2017, Tyga’s continued making music, and his latest album, “Legendary,” has been a success as well. Celebrity Net Worth said that, in total, Tyga is worth about $5 million right now.

The story about Tyga’s Maybach

Tyga seems to be a big fan of Maybach, according to the Daily Mail. For Jenner’s 19th birthday, he gave her a brand-new $200,000 Maybach. However, this may not have been a good idea, as he was in the middle of several six-figure lawsuits. This wasn’t the first Maybach in his garage, though, and the Daily Mail said that in 2014, he bought himself an even rarer and more expensive Maybach.

That was a 2014 Mercedes-Maybach 62 S Landaulet. This extremely luxurious and rare car was worth $1.3 million but it wasn’t enough for him. The Daily Mail also said that he brought his Maybach to West Coast Customs, one of the most famous car shops in the world, for additional work. This custom work cost him $900,000, which means that all in all, Tyga’s Maybach was worth $2.2 million.

He has a net worth of $5 million, was involved in multiple lawsuits at the time, and had just bought his then-girlfriend a brand-new Maybach for herself. The math just didn’t add up. 

Tyga’s Maybach gets repossessed

A post shared by T-Raww (@tyga) on

Tyga figured this out too, and according to the Daily Mail, he stopped making lease payments for his Maybach. As a result, it got repossessed. This wasn’t the first time that the California-based rapper’s exotic car got repossessed, either. The Daily Mail wrote that his Ferrari was repossessed a week before his Maybach was.

That said, the Daily Mail also said that both Tyga and Jenner said that his Ferrari did not get repossessed and instead, it was actually part of a prank. Jenner claimed that she hired some people to hide his Ferrari and then surprise him with a brand-new Bentley Bentayga, which is valued at $160,000.

This type of expensive gift-giving wasn’t new to the couple. In fact, the Daily Mail also said that Tyga “becomes ill” whenever he’s asked about how much money he spent on gifts for her.

Piers Morgan, 55, is one of ITV’s biggest stars and although he has been taking a break from his usual role on GMB this week, it hasn’t stopped him becoming the centre of attention. On today’s edition of This Morning, the journalist became the focus of discussion as Ruth Langsford, 60, opened up about her thoughts on the broadcaster. Since the moment aired, the presenter has since taken to social media to respond to the admission and couldn’t help but tease Eamonn Holmes, 60, over the bombshell revelation.

Ruth and her husband were joined on the programme by comedian Alan Carr, 43, ahead of his Epic Gameshow starting tomorrow night on the same channel.

To get into the spirit of things, the hosting duo took part in one of the challenges which contestants will participate in during the series.

The Chatty Man told Eamonn and his wife they couldn’t answer his questions with “Yes” or “No” but could respond by any other means.

As the segment commenced, one of the first questions put to the Loose Women panellist was whether she was married to Piers.

By replying, the presenter made a bombshell confession as she said sitting next to her husband: “I would like to be.”

Graydon Carter: Who is Graydon Carter? Meet the former Vanity Fair editor

We will use your email address only for sending you newsletters. Please see our Privacy Notice for details of your data protection rights.

Netflix has released its controversial new documentary series Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich which sheds further light on the convicted sex offender. The programme comes nearly a year after Epstein was found dead in his cell in a New York prison. Along with testimony from Epstein’s accusers, Filthy Rich also analyses the allegations and rumours of child sex abuse and trafficking which dogged him during his life.

Episode one of Filthy Rich concentrated on how former Vanity Fair editor-in-chief Graydon Carter published a piece in 2003 about disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein.

However, this piece didn’t include any details of the allegations facing former Wall Street worker Epstein. It wasn’t until 2008 Epstein pleaded guilty to prostitution charges involving a minor in Florida, which saw him broker a plea deal and serving out a 13-month work release programme.

The author of the article and investigative journalist Vicky Ward spoke to documentary-makers about how she was asked by the magazine to write a piece about the elusive Jeffrey Epstein. But the story Ward uncovered was unlike anything the profile she’d set out to write.

Carter wholly disputes writer Vicky Ward’s version of events.

  • Filthy Rich Jeffrey Epstein documentary Netflix release date.

Ward said: “I’d heard about Jeffrey Epstein actually, long before I was asked to write about him because he was known as this sort of Gatsby-like figure of mystery in New York.

“He was this very wealthy guy, very good-looking and people knew that he had made a lot of money but they didn’t know how. It was supposed to be a society piece. It wasn’t supposed to be anything more than that.”

Ward said: “But right away there was a red flag. One of my sources said, ‘I know a woman who had a very unpleasant experience working with Jeffrey. And even worse, her younger sister was abused by him when she was underage. Maybe they will talk to you’.”

Ward went on to speak to Epstein’s accusers Maria Farmer and her younger sister Annie, who shared their story of abuse at the hands of late the banker.

Accuser Annie Farmer claimed Vanity Fair approached Epstein for comment with the businessman saying the story was a form of revenge over unrequited feelings they harboured for him.

Ward also recounted conversations she’d had with Epstein in which she claimed he threatened her and Carter.

She claimed: “He [Epstein] said, ‘Well, Vicky, if I don’t like this piece, it’s going to be bad for you and your family.’ And I was newly pregnant with twins.

“He said, ‘Where are you giving birth? He followed that up with, ‘I know all the doctors in all the hospitals, so it doesn’t matter if you don’t tell me, I’ll find out. If I don’t like this piece, I’m going to have a witch doctor place a curse on your unborn children.’

“He was beginning to spook me out, and these were just conversations.”

In the documentary, she also claimed: “I got a phone call from Graydon, he was pretty spooked because he’d found a severed cat head in his garden. He also found a bullet on his doorstep and then suddenly, I was told by my editor that the girls were being taken out of the story.”

She went on to claim: “I’ll never forget Graydon Carter saying to me, ‘I believe Jeffrey Epstein.’”

Ward alleged: “I think that Vanity Fair basically got bought off by Jeffrey. The excuse was it was a business story. It was a business story, but just like life the story was more complicated, far more complicated.”

The Netflix documentary featured a robust statement from the ex-Editor-in-Chief Carter, which read: “During my 25 years at Vanity Fair, we were steadfast in our legal review on every story.

“Ms Ward’s reporting on this aspect of her story came in as we were going to press and simply did not meet our legal threshold.

“Furthermore, her recounting of the facts around the Epstein article is completely inaccurate.

“If we had had three people on the record willing to stand up for us in court if Epstein had chosen to sue, we would have run it.”

How is Kate Garraway's husband doing? Latest updates

KATE Garraway's husband has been suffering with coronavirus.

Her husband, Derek Draper, has been in a coma after being diagnosed with the virus two months ago.

Derek Draper has been severely ill with coronavirus since late March – he's been hospitalised for seven weeks in a critical condition.

Derek is 52 years old, which research into the virus suggests makes him more vulnerable to being badly affected by it.

Kate Garraway has been open about her husband's condition and has spoken about staying strong for their children during last night's last "clap for carers".

In Kate's most recent post on Instagram, she shared that her "fear for Derek goes on".

"When I think of how hard Derek is fighting and the bravery of the #nhs it helps."

She added: "Even if we don’t clap next Thursday it won’t diminish my eternal thanks to all in the NHS.

"They are keeping Derek alive & everyone of them is fighting as hard as Derek is to give us the chance to be reunited. Hope has to keep us all going doesn’t it?"

Kate and her family haven't been able to visit Derek due to NHS guidelines, but staff have held a phone up so that she can talk to him and play music over FaceTime.

Many stars such as Piers Morgan and Ben Shephard who she hosts Good Morning Britain with.

Piers tweeted: “This breaks my heart. Few happier, more positive people than @kategarraway. Or a more loyal, decent friend & colleague.

"So many families like hers going through so much unimaginable anguish in this crisis. Sending all my love to Kate & continuing to root for Derek."

She’s thanked everyone for their ongoing support and wished other family’s going through similar struggles her best wishes.

'All My Children': Cady McClain Says Dixie's 'Pancake Death' Was a Writer's Attempt to 'Put Me Back in Line'

Though it has been years since the strange “pancake death” suffered by All My Children‘s Dixie Cooney Martin, fans still aren’t over it. As a part of a reunion series put together during quarantine, the character’s portrayer, Cady McClain, took part and revealed more about the soap opera‘s storyline and her exit.

Cady McClain’s Dixie Cooney Martin is one of the most beloved characters in the show’s history

McClain first debuted as Dixie Cooney in 1988 and portrayed the character up until 1996. She first returned from 1998-2002 and then again from 2005-2007. She returned again in 2011 until the show ended on ABC and also was a part of the short-lived 2013 revival via Prospect Park.

The character was first introduced as the niece of longtime character Palmer Cortlandt. She was most known for her popular romantic pairing with Tad Martin. She had two children, JR Chandler and Kathy Martin, the latter being her child with Tad.

The character was beloved by fans and called “the heart and soul” of the show. Her death on the show in 2007 angered fans who were shocked that the show dared to kill off one of its most popular characters since it was created.

In between All My Children stints, McClain played Rosanna Cabot on As the World Turns. She was first in the role from 2002-2005 when she left All My Children and again from 2007 -2010 when she left the show again. She was a member of the main cast until the show ended. McClain also starred on The Young and the Restless for a year from 2014-2015 as Kelly Andrews.

McClain opened up about the pancake moment

Fans were infuriated the most by the way the character of Dixie was written off the show’s canvas. She died after eating poisoned pancakes meant for Babe Carey. For the second episode of Entertainment Weekly‘s Cast Reunions: All My Children, McClain revealed that her method of death was due to a writer having it in for her.

“It was a dig at me by one of the writers that very much wanted to put me in my place,” she said. “I had stepped out of line and they wanted to put me back in line, and I was going to eat those pancakes and I was going to learn my lesson, and I certainly did,” she said.

The actress joked that she’ll “never live those pancakes down,” adding that “it was a very strange way to go out.”

“My revenge I guess was that I really love pancakes. And they were absolutely delicious, so I enjoyed every bite. I was like, ‘This doesn’t bother me because I’m gonna eat ’em all,” she said.

McClain says though she was fired from the show, they allowed her to tell the press that she was leaving on her own accord. How things went down don’t seem to have impacted her that much, as she returned as a ghost before rejoining the show full time when it was revealed that the character was still alive.

“The show has just gotten under so many peoples’ skin. It got under my skin, like family. [I had] the joy of reconnecting and seeing all of your faces and just being so grateful for the time that we had together,” she said.

Hulu’s Watch Party Allows Subscribers to Watch Films and TV Together

Social distancing rules aren’t going to stop Hulu subscribers from being able to enjoy films and television shows together. The streaming service has launched Watch Party, a social feature that will allow up to eight eligible subscribers to watch Hulu titles together.

Watch Party features synchronized video playback and a group chat for participants, ensuring that subscribers can connect over their favorite films and television shows despite social distancing guidelines. Subscribers can determine if a Hulu title is eligible for Watch Party by visiting the title’s details page on Hulu.com and looking for the specific Watch Party icon.

All users must have a subscription to an ad-free version of Hulu, which starts at $11.99 per month. Accounts and profiles for users under 18-years-old will be unable to participate. The service is only compatible with subscribers who use Hulu.com.

Hulu’s new Watch Party is similar to Netflix Party, an unofficial web browser extension that allows Netflix subscribers to watch the service’s numerous releases with others. There is no shortage of similar screen sharing services and browser extensions on the web, but Hulu’s Watch Party is one of the rare examples of an official tool to virtually watch films and television shows together.

The Disney-owned platform continues to be one of the industry’s most prolific streaming services. Hulu has released several high-profile series this year, including the Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington-led “Little Fires Everywhere,” the Catherine the Great-focused historical comedy “The Great,” and animated-comedy “Solar Opposites,” which centers on a family of aliens who begin living in middle America. Hulu is also gearing up to release “Love, Victor” on June 19, which was originally slated to premiere on Disney+.

Hulu also recently partnered with FX, which is also owned by Disney, to launch the FX on Hulu initiative, which brings FX shows both old and new to the streaming service. The initiative hit the ground running with Alex Garland’s widely acclaimed “Devs” and the recently concluded “Mrs. America,” which centered on the movement to pass the Equal Rights Amendment, received similarly strong praise.

More information about Hulu’s Watch Party feature is available on the streaming service’s website.
