  • Kate Winslet: I Kept Pregnancy A Secret So I Could Do 'A Little Chaos' Stunt Scene - EXCLUSIVE

    Why should the stunt person have all the fun, eh?!

    Kate Winslet has revealed that she kept her pregnancy a secret during the filming of her new film A Little Chaos as to not miss out on doing her own stunts.

    Speaking exclusively to Yahoo Celebrity, the 39-year-old actress revealed that she didn't want to miss out on 'the fun' of filming a particular scene that involved falling into torrent of cascading water.

    "To be honest I really had to be prepared [for that scene] because I was pregnant when I was making the film and I didn’t tell anybody, well Alan Rickman knew," she told us.

    "But I didn’t tell anyone else because I knew if I told them they wouldn’t let me do that scene and I really wanted to do the scene. I didn’t want a stunt person to do it because why should the stunt person get to have all the fun when it’s my character?"

    Thanks to her knowledge of working with water (Titanic, anyone?!), Kate was more than aware of what procedures had to be in place in order to keep herself safe for the scene.

    Outcry at Bublé's jibe

    Michael Bublé has landed himself in hot water after posting a picture online which fans have deemed to be ‘body shaming’ a young woman.

    The 35-year-old crooner shared a snap, taken by his wife Luisana Lopilato, on his Instagram account of himself standing in front of a girl who was wearing a very small pair of shorts.

    One enraged fan slammed the singer, commenting: “Let's recognize that @michaelbuble had the audacity to take a photo of her without her knowledge and then post it to social media with taunting comments. That's body shaming and enabling online harassment, and that is not okay.”

    Cheryl first premiered her Chob (aka The Cheryl Bob) back in March, ditching her trademark long tresses.

    Much like her hair, things looked to be all change for the Geordie lass in 2015 with rumours that her X Factor seat may not be safe after just one year as a reinstated judge.

    However, The Sun recently reported that she and boss Simon Cowell WILL be returning.

    Turns out Chloe isn't easily shamed...

    Katie Hopkins, took a new tact when it came to shaming her latest target Chloe Madeley – by directly contacting her dad.

    The 40-year-old CBB runner-up was less than impressed with the 27-year-old’s latest skimpy selfies so decided to message Richard Madeley on Twitter in a bid to get her to cover up.

    A classic move that, telling the parents.

    Rather than ignoring Katie’s tweet, however, Chloe hit back, thanking the commentator for reminding her of the photo.

    But she wasn’t done there.

  • Gogglebox Star Silent Jay Makin: I’m Generally Quite Talkative, They Edit Me Out!

    Turns out, he’s not so silent

    We’re not quite sure what to think of this, but Silent Jay Makin of Gogglebox fame isn’t as silent as the show has had us all believe.

    In fact, he’s ‘generally quite talkative,’ according to the man himself.

    Jay actually DOES speak on the show. Copyright: [Tumblr]Jay actually DOES speak on the show. Copyright: [Tumblr]

    Speaking to The Sun, Jay revealed that while he was initially quiet during the early days of filming, in the latest series he has got comfortable enough to air his opinions.

    Unfortunately, these opinions tend to end up on the cutting room floor.

    He told the paper: “At first it was new to me, so I was just a bit shy, and then it kind of evolved into a running thing - 'When's Jay going to speak? When's Jay going to talk?'”

    "It was only a snippet but at the end of season four, for The X Factor finals, I was actually speaking, so that was good. Hopefully, more talking will come in the future.”

    Makin added: "They just edit the bits where I talk out. I mean, whenever The X Factor comes on, I'm always very vocal, but those bits never make it onto the show because it's become a running joke that

    As the 56-year-old queen of pop was making her way on stage at the Tidal launch event yesterday, she went to greet producer Deadmaus5 with a handshake.

    Unfortunately for Madge, Mau5 decided to go for a high-five.

    Both then tried to rectify the confusion by swapping from their initial gestures to match the other's.

    In the end the two decided to simply embrace each other and pretend the whole thing never happened.

    To be fair to Madonna, it’s pretty difficult not to look awkward around a man with a giant mouse head.

    Earlier today Madge defended Jay-Z’s re-launch of music streaming service Tidal, the first ever artist-owned platform which gives stars the power to take control of how their music is consumed.

    Online critics have since claimed that stars who have signed up, including Beyonce and Rihanna, had only come together for a cause that serves
