‘I refuse to be scared anymore’ says Coronation Street’s Sally Dynevor as she faces her fears on Dancing on Ice
LAST year, in the depths of the pandemic, Sally Dynevor made a promise to herself: once the world returned to some kind of normality, she would take the chances she’d been too frightened to consider before.
And next weekend, the 58-year-old actress, who has played the much-loved Sally Webster on Coronation Street since 1986, makes good on that promise –taking her first tentative steps out of her comfort zone as a contestant on ITV’s Dancing On Ice.david titlowLast year Sally Dynevor made a promise to herself that once the world opened up she would take the chances she’d been too frightened to consider before[/caption] Next week Sally makes her debut as a contestant on ITV’s Dancing On Ice, partnered with American skating champion Matt Evers
“After lockdown and everything that happened, I’ve felt that I just have to get on and do things and live the dreams that I want to live without being fearful any more,” she says.
“I think lockdown has made us all realise that. Life just changed so much, so I have to take every wonderful opportunity that comes my way, because it might never come my way again.
“My youngest daughter Hattie and I have been watching Dancing On Ice for years. She kept saying: ‘You should do it, Mum.’ And I thought: ‘Right, if I don’t do it now, I’ll never do it.’”
Signing up for DOI wasn’t just to push her boundaries, but also to show the millions of Corrie fans who she really is.
“A friend of mine said: ‘You should do it because nobody knows [the real] Sally. They only know Sally Webster.’
“I’m hoping I’m not like Sally, although I think I am in certain ways – you can’t play a character for so long and not have things that are similar.Most read in Celebrity ROYAL DENIAL Lawyer claims bully story is 'untrue' & Piers Morgan has 'unpleasant surprise' GOD SAVE MCQUEEN Kate marks 40th birthday with stunning snaps wearing McQueen dresses FAB 40 Kate Middleton has evolved as a 'relatable mum' and displays similarities to Diana THE FAVOURITE Prince Andrew is Queen's priority 'even if it upsets her other children' FROSTY RECEPTION Kate and Wills use cunning trick to stop public seeing into their home LIKE FINE WINE The fit stars who are getting BETTER with age - from Davina McCall to Adele
“There are moments where I think: ‘Oh my god, that is such a Sally thing to do.’ She does creep into my personal life, but I try to leave her in the dressing room.”
Sally, who has no previous skating experience whatsoever, has been partnered with American skating champion Matt Evers, 45, and admits that she’s found the training tough.
“I am really enjoying it, but it’s not easy,” she says. “Yes [I’m worried about getting hurt]. Matt says that’s my problem, because he says my lines are good but then as soon as he lets go of my hand, I’m a different person.
“And he says it’s about confidence and just going for it. But that ‘going for it’ thing is really hard, because I might go for it and fall flat on my face and I don’t want to do that!
“But I’m loving being lifted and flying through the sky. It’s brilliant to have Matt, because he’s been doing it for a long time.
“We joke about doing the headbanger [a death-defying lift involving being picked up by the ankle and swung around by your partner]. There’s probably absolutely no chance I’ll be doing that, but never say never!”
At 58, Sally is the oldest contestant in this year’s line-up – narrowly trumping 57-year-old Happy Mondays member Bez – and she’s keen to encourage other people not to rule themselves out from trying new things, no matter what their age.
“When you get into your 50s and your children are grown up, there’s a sense of ‘sit back’, but I just want to keep pushing myself. I want to have as much fun over 50 as I did under 50, and I really want to encourage anybody my age to give it a go.”
Does she have her eye on the trophy? “Oh god, no, I’m definitely not in it to win it,” she laughs. “I’m in it to experience it and once [I’m out], it’ll be lovely watching all the wonderful contestants from back at home on the sofa.
“I won’t be too disappointed if the judges aren’t happy with what I’m doing. The fact that I actually got out on the ice and didn’t fall flat on my face… I won’t mind if I’m not doing it perfectly.
“I’ve said this to the [producers] – I’m not good, but I’m going to give it a go! And if I get through the first week, I’ll be really super-happy.”‘IT’S OUT OF MY COMFORT ZONE’
But the mother of three does have a secret weapon – she’s assembled a crack team of Corrie’s former DOI contestants to give her the best insider advice.
“Samia [Longchambon], Jane [Danson], Lisa [George], Antony [Cotton] and Andy [Whyment] have all done amazingly on the show. I’ve been so proud of them because it’s hard.
“I’ve set up a ‘Corrie Dancing On Ice’ WhatsApp group. They’ve been brilliant and really encouraging. I need their support and to give me tips on how they coped. It’s really interesting hearing all their stories and what they went through, because I’m going through exactly the same thing.”
And, of course, she’s also got 2018 Dancing On Ice runner-up Brooke Vincent, who played her on-screen daughter Sophie, on hand, too.
“I get messages all the time from Brooke and Helen [Flanagan, who played her eldest daughter Rosie]. It’s so lovely watching them with their children.
“I just adore them both and I’m super-proud of them because they’re wonderful mums. They’re really happy and that’s all I wished for them.
“I would love it if they could come back to Corrie. But I think both Helen and Brooke would like to come back for one or two episodes rather than sign up for a long time, because of their children. But it would be perfect.”
Just learning to skate might be hard enough, but for self-confessed tomboy Sally, the daring outfits have proved to be quite challenging, too.
“It was a really weird thing to get all dressed up, as I’ve never seen myself look like that. I had hair pieces in with twinkly outfits, high-heeled shoes and fishnet tights.
“I was like: ‘Wow, who is this person?’ On Corrie, I never get to dress like that and in real life, I dress like a boy. It’s out of my comfort zone completely. It was such an experience.”
Sally has a phenomenal figure, which she puts down to regular spinning and barre classes, but says she’s been disappointed that her body hasn’t become more sculpted yet from all the hours of skating training.
“I’m eating so much because I get off the ice and I’m starving. But as it really ramps up and I’m learning more than one routine and everything kicks in a little bit more, I’m hoping that I’ll be a bit more toned up than I am now.”
Of course, Sally isn’t just famous for her role on the ITV soap any more – over the past year or so, she’s also become known as “Phoebe Dynevor’s mum”, since her 26-year-old daughter shot to stardom with her performance as Daphne in Netflix’s record-breaking period drama Bridgerton.David titlowAt 58, Sally is the oldest contestant in this year’s Dancing On Ice line-up – narrowly trumping 57-year-old Happy Mondays member Bez[/caption] David TitlowSally says she’s ‘super proud’ of daughter Phoebe[/caption] David TitlowSally says her children are excited to see her compete on Dancing On Ice[/caption]
And then Sally made headlines herself when she accompanied her daughter to the Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year Awards in November, rubbing shoulders with A-listers like Claire Foy and Dame Joan Collins.
“I’m super-proud of Phoebe,” she says. “She’s carving out a career for herself and she’s doing really well. Yeah [I give her advice and discuss roles], but she’s got great instincts. She doesn’t need me. She’s very bright and switched on. She knows what she’s doing.”
Like any mum, Sally – who also has 24-year-old son Samuel and 18-year-old Harriet with her husband of 26 years, TV writer Tim, 59 – doesn’t want to just focus on her famous daughter, and instead is keen to talk about all her offspring equally.
“When Hattie goes out, people always say: ‘You look like the girl off Bridgerton,’ and she has to say: ‘That’s my sister.’ They look so alike. Hattie doesn’t know yet what she wants to do.
“She’s about to do A levels, but that’s all up in the air at the moment [because of the pandemic], which is worrying. Her plan is to go off to uni and do English, so we’ll see.
“And Sam is in financial PR. He’s never really wanted to be in [television], even though all the family is. Sam’s steered away from that and carved his own career path. I’m really proud of him for that.
“The kids are super-excited about Dancing On Ice. I haven’t shown them any videos, because I don’t want them to worry if they think I’m not very good. I want them to see it on the night, when I’m safe. But they’re super-proud and they all want to come on the first night.‘FOR ME, IT’S PERFECT’
“Tim was a little nervous. He would never stop me taking part, but he didn’t want me to hurt myself, and he’s worried I’ll get tired. He’s behind me in every way and wants me to follow this dream.”
It’s not surprising that her husband is worried about her tiring herself out – in addition to her intense training sessions, Sally has been filming a big story line for Coronation Street, involving her onscreen husband Tim Metcalfe (played by Joe Duttine) hiding the fact that he is suffering with heart problems.
She hints that 2022 is going to be a “big year to test Sally and Tim’s relationship.”
“There have been long days. It was tricky juggling [training] with the Street, because I had a big story. But it’s quietened down [for now], as Sally has gone off to see her sister, so I’ll have more time to concentrate on Dancing On Ice. But I love my job and Corrie always comes first for me.”
It’s no secret that acting is a precarious career, with the vast majority of stars spending swathes of time out of work, so Sally doesn’t take her 36-year tenure on the cobbles for granted – and sees no reason to ever leave.
“I came in to play Kevin’s girlfriend. I didn’t think she was gonna last very long. I thought: ‘I’ll probably only be in it for a few episodes and I’ll go.’ But 36 years later, I’m still there. I love it just as much now as I did then.
“When I get the scripts, I’m just as excited as I was on the very first day I started. And it’s a privilege to work on Coronation Street, because I’m getting great stories. Where else would that happen?
“I can’t imagine anything that I would rather be doing. If Coronation Street said to me: ‘Bye, you’re off,’ I’d never close the door, because I love it. I said at the beginning that I’d leave when I wasn’t enjoying it. And for some actors, Coronation Street isn’t the life they want to lead. But for me, it’s perfect.
“I can go home every night, I don’t have to travel up and down the country. My children are so important. I just want to be there for them. I want to be that person on the phone for them all the time and help them when I can.
“And I can do that when I’m doing Corrie. It’s just been a little bit difficult in the last few weeks [with juggling Dancing On Ice]!”
Sally also has Corrie to thank for meeting husband Tim – whose mum worked behind the scenes – and for potentially saving her life, after her character’s breast cancer story line in 2009 prompted her to have a tiny lump she’d had for a few months checked.
After being diagnosed with breast cancer and having a lumpectomy and chemotherapy, she returned to work following a six-month break. And through it all, she had her Corrie family for support.
“It’s lovely, because we have grown up together. Some of us have had kids at the same time. Michael [Le Vell, who plays her ex-husband Kevin Webster] and I have known each other since we were 13. We met at David Johnson’s theatre workshop on a Saturday morning in Oldham,” she says.
“I’ve probably known him longer than I’ve known anyone. We’ll always be close. I love that the writers put that in sometimes – I’ve had a couple of scenes in recent weeks where Sally and Kevin have a heart-to-heart.
“I really want to keep that going. I hope the relationship between Sally and Kevin continues, because I think it’s an important one.
“The crew and the cast, everyone’s been through so much together. It’s really hard for Corrie [with the pandemic], because you want to hug everyone and have lunch with your friends. I want to see the make-up department do our make-up again.
“It’s quite beautiful to have made life-long friends. You don’t get that in many jobs any more. It’s really worth holding on to.”

What are your skincare heroes?
Weleda Skin Food and Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream – it’s very nourishing. I’m trying collagen capsules, too. The menopause and chemo have made my skin drier and my hair really fine, so I’ll try anything!
What are your make-up bag essentials?
Mascara, eyeliner and lip balm.
What’s your best budget buy?
I’ve got extremely dry skin, so I take moisturising very seriously and Nivea seems to do as good a job as any of the posh creams.
Have you got any beauty tips?
As you get older, you realise it’s important to look after the whole body, so drink lots of water and get plenty of sleep.
Who’s your beauty icon?
I try to look at personality rather than appearance, but I’d say my daughters Phoebe and Hattie. They both always look gorgeous.Sally has been married to TV writer Tim, 59, for 26 years.

Melania Trump looks unrecognizable as ‘Donald’s new bride’ in throwback pictures from behind the scenes at their wedding
MELANIA Trump looked completely unrecognizable in throwback pictures from her wedding to Donald more than 15 years ago.
She tied the knot with the brash business tycoon at a lavish ceremony held in Palm Beach, Florida on January 22, 2005.Rex FeaturesMelania Trump tied the knot with her husband Donald in Florida in January 2005[/caption] Mario Testino/American Vogue Her gown was pictured on the front cover of Vogue magazine in February 2005[/caption]
Melania’s Dior gown contained 1,500 diamonds and pearls and took over 500 hours to create. She appeared on the front cover of Vogue’s February 2005 magazine.
It included 98 yards of white satin and the skirt was wide so Melania “was seated on the beach” for their wedding supper at Mar-a-Lago, according to a New York Times report.
Melania, formerly Ms. Knauss, teamed the dress up with a white veil, jewels, and wore a hand bracelet containing white roses.
The then 34-year-old didn’t carry a bouquet down the aisle but held a set of rosary beads instead.
Melania was given a Graff emerald cut diamond ring that was in platinum for her big day, costing around £500,000 ($650,000).
Around 350 guests were at the ceremony and the pair’s nuptials cost around $1million in total.Most read in The Sun ENDER AN ERA Danny Dyer quits EastEnders after joining rival drama for 'six-figure sum' LAURA MARRIAGE SPLIT A Place In The Sun's Laura Hamilton reveals shock split from husband HIS FAULT Djokovic seen smiling at event with kids day AFTER testing positive with Covid COLD CALL I text my dead sister’s number and I couldn’t believe the response I got 'AT PEACE' Sinead O’Connor’s teen son Shane dies as she pays tribute to ‘light of my life’ 'UNCERTAIN' Denise Van Outen's ex fiancé responds after it’s revealed she’s ditched him
Melania wanted a “very creamy and white color palette,” event designer Preston Bailey revealed in a report cited by The Hollywood Reporter.
Bailey claimed the businesswoman requested very traditional flowers including roses, vernaculars, and orchids.
Rudy Giuliani, who was the mayor of New York City at the time, Hillary Clinton, and music legend Billy Joel attended the star-studded event.
Don Jr, Ivanka, Eric, and Tiffany watched the brash New Yorker tie the knot for the third time.
Boxing promoter Don King branded the event a “great American occasion”, as reported in the Times.
He said: “It’s a royal wedding. It’s something out of the monarchy. It’s something like, you know, King Henry or King Edward – they’ve got so many kings it really doesn’t matter – would have.”
Meanwhile, Joseph O’Neill wrote in The New Yorker in 2016 that the newlyweds looked “pleased and very happy” as they walked back from the altar.
He said: “Melania looked lovely and the fifty-eight-year-old Donald – as a friend of the family – I was bound to call him and his wife by their Christian names, even if Donald reportedly liked being called “Mr Trump” – looked uncharacteristically bashful.”‘GREAT AMERICAN OCCASION’
The pair indulged in beef tenderloin and chocolate truffle cakes in a lavish reception at Mar-a-Lago.
She sported a Vera Wang dress while Trump donned a tuxedo and white bow tie.
Melania met Donald at a fashion week party thrown by Paolo Zampolli, the owner of Metropolitan Models, in 1998, according to Vanity Fair.
She was working as a model in New York after emigrating from Slovenia, while he was still married to his second wife Marla Maples. Trump and Maples were living separately at the time.
Donald popped the question in 2004 with a Graff engagement ring, costing $1.5million.
Melania told the New York Post: “It was a great surprise. We are very happy together.”
Years after the lavish ceremony, Melania gave birth to son Barron in 2006 before becoming the first lady when Trump was inaugurated in 2017.
Since leaving the White House, she seemingly avoided the limelight.
But, Melania has been working on projects including charity fundraising.
She made brief appearances at Mar-a-Lago and attended a GOP fundraising event at the resort.
Melania was also seen at dinners with her husband throughout last spring.
In October, she was spotted alongside Donald at Game 4 of the 2021 World Series in Atlanta, Georgia, and in December announced a foray into the world of non-fungible tokens.
A non-fungible token called “Melania’s Vision” will feature a watercolor painting of the titular model’s “cobalt blue” eyes.
For the price of one SOL, a cryptocurrency on the Solana blockchain, collectors can possess the celebrity NFT, which is a statement described as an “amulet to inspire.”
In a statement, she said the limited edition NFT could be purchased between December 16 and 31.
Melania teased that “the first piece is a preview of what’s to come”.EPAYears after marrying Donald, she would become the first lady of the US[/caption] GettyDonald and Melania made a public appearance at Game 4 of the 2021 World Series[/caption] GettyDonald met Melania, then Knauss, at a fashion week party in 1996.

THE Masked Singer judge Davina McCall has revealed how she was forced to wear trainers with her ball gown after taking a nasty fall.
The TV presenter headed to Instagram to show off her outfit for the episode of the singing competition – which she was due to wear towering heels with.INSTAGRAMDavina revealed how she was forced to wear trainers with the dress[/caption] ITVThe star wore the strappy number on Saturday night’s Masked Singer[/caption]
However, Davina, 54 – who put on a busty display – was forced to wear a pair of white trainers with the navy dress following a fall.
The Big Brother star posed for a snap, flashing the comfortable white trainers, as she told fans that she had a “swollen ankle and foot”.
“It’s movie night,” she teased ahead of Saturday night’s episode of The Masked Singer. “Swollen ankle and foot due to a big fall the day before.”
She went on to credit her glamorous gown, which featured strap details at the shoulder, to designer Galia Lahav – and credited her stylist Angie Smith.
Despite the footwear change and grey ankle socks, Davina still showed off her stunning curves in the thigh-slit gown.
In behind-the-scenes footage from the hit ITV show, the judge could be seen using a pair of crutches as she tried to get around the studio.
She took to Twitter to share the clip, alongside a series of laughing faces, as she told her following: “I was on crutches.”
Her fans quickly flooded the post to wish her well, and gush that she still “looked fabulous” despite having to miss out on wearing high heels.
“You look fabulous – hope the foot’s not too sore,” one wrote, as a second added: “Rocking the dress and trainers Davina. Love it. Hope your foot is OK.”Most read in TV CAUGHT OUT Emmerdale's Meena Jutla to be caught out as she stabs Samson plus other spoilers ENDER AN ERA Danny Dyer quits EastEnders after joining rival drama for 'six-figure sum' SHOCK SPLIT Laura Hamilton split from husband after marriage hit breaking point in lockdown secret move Laura Hamilton admits 'change is scary' as she moves out of family home LAURA MARRIAGE SPLIT A Place In The Sun's Laura Hamilton reveals shock split from husband 'UNCERTAIN' Denise Van Outen's ex fiancé responds after it’s revealed she’s ditched him
It comes days after opened up about her “agreement” with boyfriend Michael Douglas to keep their relationship private.
The TV star – who was previously married to Andrew Leggett and Matthew Robertson – has been dating the hairdresser since 2019.
She opened up about why in a recent chat with OK! Magazine.
Davina said: “We’ve got an agreement that I don’t talk about our relationship, because our exes and kids don’t have a right to reply, so it’s not fair.
“We won’t ever talk about us in an interview because somehow words linger and we don’t want that.
“The podcast is pretty public, but our relationship isn’t, and that will never change because we don’t need it to.”
Davina and celebrity hairdresser Michael, 47, first met when he styled her hair when she presented Channel 4’s Big Brother.
The pair were great friends before falling in love and then publicly got together in the summer of 2019.
Both of them have been married before and also share children with their exes.
Sister Wives’ Meri Brown reunites with Kody & Robyn for birthday party after vowing to follow strict covid rules
MERI Brown reunited with husband Kody and sister-wife Robyn for a family birthday party despite their strict covid house rules.
The Sister Wives dad has created a set of serious guidelines for his family during the pandemic, causing many arguments.Instagram/Meri BrownMeri reunited with Robyn for Ariella’s birthday party[/caption] Instagram/Meri BrownKody also popped in to say hello[/caption]
Meri, 50, was finally able to reunite with Kody, 52, and Robyn, 43, after nearly two years of strict covid restrictions.
The reality star took to Instagram Live on Friday to check in with her friends and fans while attending a birthday party at the family home in Flagstaff, Arizona.
While filming, Robyn popped her head in to say hello, as Meri disclosed the reason for their reunion.
“So this is Robyn Brown, just in case some of you don’t know,” she laughed in the camera.
“I’m here for Ariella’s birthday party,” the TV personality explained.
Robyn then chimed in: “Ariella’s birthday party was mermaids this year.”Most read in The Sun ENDER AN ERA Danny Dyer quits EastEnders after joining rival drama for 'six-figure sum' LAURA MARRIAGE SPLIT A Place In The Sun's Laura Hamilton reveals shock split from husband HIS FAULT Djokovic seen smiling at event with kids day AFTER testing positive with Covid COLD CALL I text my dead sister’s number and I couldn’t believe the response I got 'AT PEACE' Sinead O’Connor’s teen son Shane dies as she pays tribute to ‘light of my life’ 'UNCERTAIN' Denise Van Outen's ex fiancé responds after it’s revealed she’s ditched him
Later, Kody also jumped into the video to say hello to viewers.COVID CRAZY
Meri’s reunion was a rare occurrence as the Brown family patriarch has created strict rules in light of the covid pandemic.
The multi-page list of restrictions included wiping down groceries and mail with Lysol wipes, and a two-week quarantine after traveling or having visitors.
Kody’s requirements have increased tension in his relationships with his three wives and children, and he even threatened to “evict” two of his sons for not following the rules.
The TLC star clashed with his wife Janelle, 52, over the boys’ socializing during the Thanksgiving holidays in an explosive argument, which ended with Janelle telling him to “f**k off.”
He told the mother of six that she should be alone on the holiday because her sons have been seeing too many people and would put everyone else’s health in jeopardy.
Kody told her to “respect” the “big picture” regarding his rules, but she said she didn’t want to be alone and declared, “You know, f**k off,” before storming away.STRICT DAD
They also went head to head over Gabriel, 20, and Garrison, 23, living in Janelle’s house.
The irate father thought they should move out because they had been breaking his Covid rules and if they remained at Janelle’s, he wouldn’t be able to go over.
Janelle said Garrison is saving up to buy a new house, but can’t afford one yet due to the rising cost of real estate in Flagstaff.
Kody hit back, saying Garrison needed to figure out his problems on his own.
In his confessional, the TLC star said: “I tolerated a lot for a very long time until I realized that I was being lied to or deceived.
“And at that point, I sort of lost my patience with it, I’m like, you just need to make the boys move out.
“I’m on the verge of washing my hands of it. I’m gonna have Gabrielle and Garrison move out of the house. You’ve got a good car, you go get a job, here’s some cash. Bye.”
The Brown family has seen major tension during the pandemic, and in November Kody’s wife, Christine decided to abandon their marriage and move back to Utah.Instagram/Meri BrownShe spent time with her husband despite his strict covid rules[/caption] TLCThe father of 18 has a list of requirements[/caption] TLCHe tried to kick his sons out of the house[/caption]
iPhone users warned over NoReboot bug which leaves devices vulnerable to hackers – and Apple CAN’T fix it
ALL iPhone users have been warned about a new “ultimate persistence bug” which affects every model – and Apple cannot fix it.
The new threat is called “NoReboot” and was discovered by the respected mobile security specialists ZecOps.ZecOps has warned Apple iPhone users about a new bug called NoReboot
ZecOps said NoReboot was particularly dangerous because it can stop iPhones affected by even temporary attacks from escaping their hacker.
It affects every iPhone model and every version of iOS.
NoReboot is said to trick users into thinking they have switched off or restarted their iPhones.
The bug hijacks the InCallService, SpringBoard and backboardd background processes which handle the reboot process on iPhones, according to a Forbes report.
It shows a fake shutdown or startup sequence when users try to initiate either process.Most read in Tech SUPER SHOOTER You're using your iPhone camera wrong – three quick hacks to learn right now NEW LOOK iPhone 14 leak: New design looks different to ANY Apple phone we've seen TALK TO ME WhatsApp will warn you if friends are talking about you – here's how it works CURSOR CURSE If you've clicked a Google email recently then you may have been hacked TOP PIC Genius iPhone trick totally changes how you share photos – and it's so easy COOL TRICKS You're using your iPhone weather app wrong – game-changing hacks to know
In reality, the iPhone remains on.
The worrying development is particularly dangerous because it is easier for hackers to access iPhones with “non-persistent” attacks but these are removed when the user shuts down or restarts their phone.
But the damage the hacks can do increases when combined with the NoReboot code because the user cannot rid themselves of the hack.
ZecOps says Apple is unable to prevent an attack because the software itself cannot be patched “because it’s not exploiting any persistence bugs at all – only playing tricks with the human mind.”
Researchers at ZecOps believe the only way the attack can be countered is if Apple built new hardware into its iPhones to show if the phone was really on or off.
This potential new hardware though would only come with new models, meaning millions of iPhones would be vulnerable.
ZecOps recommends forcing a restart if you happen to notice your boot or shutdown sequence is being faked, although most users are unlikely to be able to realise.
It also recommends installing detection tools and following common sense best practises, such as only downloading apps from reliable sources.

Tyson Fury vs Francis Ngannou fight welcomed as ‘exciting nonsense’ by Eddie Hearn as he focuses on Dillian Whyte clash
TYSON FURY’S bid to fight UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou is just ‘exciting nonsense’, according to Eddie Hearn.
But the Gypsy King has been having fun calling out the Cameroon knockout sensation on Twitter instead.
And Ngannou replied with an invite into the octagon with the standard boxing gloves instead.
Hearn would much rather Fury handled the serious business of negotiating a deal to face Whyte but is enjoying the show.
“I think it’s nonsense but it’s all good,” he said after launching his and DAZN’s stacked start to 2022.
“Anything that gets people talking is good.Most read in Boxing SNOW DAYS OFF Watch Usyk train for Joshua rematch in freezing snow as he's blasted by steam BOXING TRAGEDY Russian boxer Sahakyan dies aged 26 after 10 days in coma following KO loss JUST NOT WHYTE Whyte will begrudgingly accept 80-20 Fury split but demands court award more RISKY BUSINESS Joshua taking huge risk by changing trainers just 12 weeks before Usyk fight ED START Six HUGE boxing fights announced by Eddie Hearn's Matchroom in feast of action PAUL OR NOTHING Paul in talks to fight Chavez Jr with Mexican told to RETIRE if he loses

“It is quite exciting to think of the prospect of Tyson Fury fighting Francis Ngannou in a ring or in a cage, wherever. But I don’t see it happening any time soon.
“Anything like that drives fan engagement, which is good, it’s good for Tyson and Francis Ngannou, boxing and the UFC.
“Anything that gets people talking is good news.”
Whyte is furious that the WBC have ordered him to accept just 20 per cent of the purse for his potential fight with Fury, especially as he is their interim champion.
Hearn expects Tuesday’s purse bids to be pushed back to help all parties come to an agreement and he confirms the always bullish Whyte – who has been the sanctioning body’s No1 contender since 2017 – has been drained by the frustration.
He said: “We swapped a couple of messages earlier this week and Dillian is not the type to accept anything that is not fair.
“I would be tired as well, if I was Dillian Whyte, but I think his team has done a good job of shielding him from a lot of it.GettyDillian Whyte is the mandatory challenger for Tyson Fury’s WBC heavyweight title[/caption]
“His management and legal team have put so much work in to get Dillian what he deserves and a lot of people would have quit a long time ago.
“Sometimes these things are a battle of endurance because it is legal letter after letter, case after case, petitions, just relentless work.
“But they are not going to give up and they will keep fighting for what they believe Dillian Whyte deserves.”

THE Masked Singer is back on our screens for the third season.
With more crazy costumes and performances, one contestant had to wave goodbye – find out here who it was.ITVCelebrities battle it out in the hope of becoming The Masked Singer UK 2022 winner[/caption] Who left The Masked Singer 2022 last night?
During the third episode of Masked Singer, fans waved goodbye to the legendary Lionfish.
And it was revealed that Pop Idol legend Will Young was the man behind the costume.
Jonathan Ross had his suspicions that this was the case, as did fellow judge Rita Ora.
Fans of the ITV had also worked out the identity of the Lionfish thanks to a number of clues.

Man Utd transfer target Ousmane Dembele ‘leaves Barcelona boss Xavi SPEECHLESS with eye-watering wage demands’
BARCELONA boss Xavi was reportedly left ‘speechless’ after Ousmane Dembele demanded £700,000-a-week to sign a new deal.
Sky Sport Germany reporter Florian Plettenburg claims the winger put forwarded his wage request this week amid links with a January move to Manchester United and Bayern Munich.GettyBarcelona have been left stunned by Ousmane Dembele’s wage demands for a new contract[/caption]
Dembele is out of contract at the end of the season and can negotiate a pre-contract agreement with clubs outside of Spain this month.
Bayern have been linked with a possible switch following his successful stint at Borussia Dortmund.
But Barcelona remain hopeful they can convince Dembele to extend his Nou Camp stay.
However, the Frenchman’s demands for £700k per week did not go down well with manager Xavi.
He was reportedly left aghast when informed by club chiefs.

Newcastle are known to be interested in Dembele after making their first signing of the new Saudi era in Kieran Trippier.
United have been linked too, with Ralf Rangnick searching for fresh faces to lead a charge up the Premier League table.
One option reportedly mooted by the German is a swap deal for Dembele involving wantaway Red Devils striker Anthony Martial.
That’s because Barcelona are on the hunt for a new striker following Sergio Aguero’s retirement.
Having already splashed £55m on Ferran Torres, they have also been linked with Alvaro Morata and Edinson Cavani.
But Barca chiefs are now quietly confident of challenging Real Madrid and Man City for Erling Haaland this summer.

Will Young revealed as The Masked Singer’s Lionfish – as huge clues it was the Pop Idol star are revealed

Fans of the ITV show were convinced it was the 42-year-old after a number of clues pointed towards him, including references to his time on Pop Idol in 2002.Will Young was revealed as Lionfish tonight on The Masked Singer ReutersWill Young took part in Pop Idol in 2002[/caption]

The third series of the Masked Singer returned to our screens last week and fans have been busy trying to figure out which celebs are behind the masks.
Viewers already had an inkling that it was Will because of a number of Pop Idol references in Lionfish’s VT.
It pointed out their “late start” in their career and when he clapped back at judge Simon Cowell’s critique.
On Saturday night’s instalment of the programme, a song that Will performed back in 2002 started playing when Lionfish went off stage.

Chelsea find transfer solution to Ben Chilwell injury in 17-year-old Lewis Hall after shining against Chesterfield
LUCAS DIGNE? Emerson Palmieri? Ryan Bertrand? Sergino Dest?
All have been strongly linked with Chelsea in recent weeks as being the replacement option for Ben Chilwell, who will miss the rest of the season with injury.GettyLewis Hall, 17, impressed in his first team debut in the FA Cup game against Chesterfield[/caption]
However, have Chelsea already got a player within the ranks who is ready to step up and replace Chilwell without having to spend any at all?
Yes, they absolutely have.
The most shocking thing about this is said player who is already willing, able, and good enough to come in is just 17 years old.
Lewis Hall made his first team Chelsea debut and helped the Blues comfortably beat Chesterfield in the FA Cup.
But he didn’t just turn up and do a job, he turned up and was one of Chelsea’s best players – and my man of the match – being involved in three Chelsea goals.
Hall is a player who I have been watching closely in the academy this season and is the one I have been keeping the closest eye on – purely because I have felt that he has been our best academy player so far this season and the one to watch.Most read in Football RED DEVILS NEWS Pogba £500k-a-week contract EXCLUSIVE, Ronaldo could LEAVE in summer GUNNERS NEWS LIVE Bruno Guimaraes £40m, Dusan Vlahovic UPDATE, Coutinho joins Villa TRANSFERS LIVE Luis Diaz to Liverpool EXCLUSIVE, Trippier completes Newcastle switch ALL HANDS ON BECK Inside David Beckham's incredible holiday on luxury £5m superyacht Seven MY NIGHT WITH GREALISH Grealish invited me to a party night at villa, says Chloe Brockett COULIBALY SHOCK Mali ace Coulibaly, 32, suffers heart attack on pitch as match abandoned

He’s really made me sit up and take notice and remember his name and that’s exactly what others will be doing after this performance.
He has it all about his game and at Stamford Bridge he proved that he also has the maturity and intelligence to play in Thomas Tuchel’s system.
There is no doubt at all that the Chelsea head coach would have been watching Hall play with great enjoyment and wondering whether he actually needs to go for one of the names mentioned above.
He has absolutely everything he needs in 17-year-old Hall right here to jump in and replace Chilwell until the time of his return.
Chelsea showed their class but it was Hall that stood out and looked totally comfortable playing in this Chelsea senior team.
He has a massive future, and this is the time to integrate him and springboard that future.

But in horrifying scenes, Coulibaly, 32, collapsed late in the first half.
Panicked medics rushed onto the pitch with the game temporarily halted.
After realising the severity of the issue, the match was eventually abandoned, awarded as a 1-0 win for Al Rayyan, the scoreline at the time of Coulibaly’s collapse.
After the game, a league statement confirmed Coulibaly – who spent 12 years playing in Europe – had suffered a heart attack.
It read: “During the QNB Stars League match between Al Rayyan and Al Wakrah on Saturday, Ousmane Coulibaly suffered a heart attack which required the intervention of medical and ambulance staff present at the venue.

On Saturday, January 8, 2022, former Rep. Doug Collins took to Twitter to falsely accuse Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, Sonia Sotomayor, of getting dinner with a group of politicians.
“Justice Sotomayer was caught dining last night with:
“After the lies she spat out yesterday, how can she still rule impartial on this case?

“Your spreading lies, Doug. Justice Sotomayor did not dine w Pelosi, Klobuchar & Schumer. Político retracted the story, they misidentified Iris Weinshall,” a user responded on Twitter.
Politico, who originally shared the story mistakenly identifying Sotomayor as the dinner guest, took to their social media account to update users on the error.
“CORRECTION: This morning’s Playbook had a photo of a Friday dinner at Le Diplomate, and misidentified Iris Schumer, the majority leader’s wife, as Sonia Sotomayor,” the Politico account tweeted.
“Our tipster got it wrong, but we should have double checked. We deeply regret the error.”

Paula Nuchi posted the video to her TikTok account, paula_nuchi, where it has gone viral with over one million views.TikTok / paula_nuchiPaula from Texas shared the story of her first date on TikTok[/caption] TikTok / paula_nuchiPaula mortifyingly recalls waking up to the sound of her own fart[/caption]
The 24-year-old from Texas revealed that she met up with a guy she met on the dating site Hinge for a movie night.
Paula said she turned up two hours late to the date and was tired, naturally, Paula fell asleep whilst watching the film.
The next thing she remembers is farting herself awake whilst he was awake and holding her.
We’ve all had embarrassing moments on a first date, Paula captioned the video: “If he doesn’t text me at all today we know why.”
Users couldn’t help but laugh at Paula’s story and couldn’t wait to see if he did ever text her again.
In a later video, Paula revealed what happened next.Most read in Relationships GREEN EYED My rich ex tested me to see if I cared about his money it was like 'auditions' SWIPE RIGHT I'm a dating expert & here are 7 things your profile needs that work EVERY time OH GENE!

Paula said she even send him the TikTok video she made about farting herself awake like ‘Bozo the clown’.
She said she was really into him and they had been texting for a few weeks prior to the date.
Apparently, he was fine with her turning up two hours late, and they began to watch the film, before she fell asleep she could feel that she needed to blow-off but managed to suppress it.
But when she fell asleep it had escaped, the two exchanged an awkward look, but he ignored it and also fell asleep.
In the morning, Paula made the TikTok video whilst still at his house and showed him it, the rest of the day went well and he walked her to her car when she left and even asked her to message him when she was home.

Laura Hamilton split from husband after marriage hit breaking point as they were stuck at home together in lockdown
TV presenter Laura Hamilton has split from her husband of ten years — after reaching breaking point while stuck at home together in lockdown.
Her relationship with insurance broker Alex Goward, 41, then grew strained as the pair spent much more time at home, sources said.
The couple, together for 13 years and with two children, decided to split last summer and have since moved out of their family home.
They are also in the process of selling their nearby café, Lord Roberts on The Green.
A pal told The Sun on Sunday yesterday: “Laura is often away abroad travelling with her work on A Place In The Sun, so the couple weren’t used to spending so much time together under one roof.
“She really wanted to make the marriage work for the sake of the family. She threw her all into saving the relationship, but in lockdown they reached crisis point.
“The pressure of being stuck at home and working under one roof put too much strain on the relationship. It seemed easier in the end just to go their separate ways.Most read in The Sun ENDER AN ERA Danny Dyer quits EastEnders after joining rival drama for 'six-figure sum' LAURA MARRIAGE SPLIT A Place In The Sun's Laura Hamilton reveals shock split from husband HIS FAULT Djokovic seen smiling at event with kids day AFTER testing positive with Covid COLD CALL I text my dead sister’s number and I couldn’t believe the response I got 'AT PEACE' Sinead O’Connor’s teen son Shane dies as she pays tribute to ‘light of my life’ 'UNCERTAIN' Denise Van Outen's ex fiancé responds after it’s revealed she’s ditched him ‘Lockdown was tough on them’
“Lockdown was tough on them as a couple, like many people in the UK, and they’re just moving forward with their lives. Laura’s friends rallied round her to give her the support she needed and she’s been throwing herself into work.”
Laura, who also appeared on ITV’s Dancing On Ice in 2011 and has been a children’s TV presenter, stopped wearing her wedding ring in July last year.
After being contacted by The Sun on Sunday about the split yesterday, Laura shared the news online. She told followers: “This isn’t something I ever thought I’d be saying but after 13 years of being together Alex and I have separated. Our children are and always will be our number one priority.”
She included a quote from children’s author Dr. Seuss reading: “Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”
Last week, she posted a cryptic Instagram story of a small bonfire with the caption: “Getting rid of 15 years of paperwork.”
She opened up last year about date nights with Alex at their home in Purley, Surrey.

She said: “Our business PA lives in a little house in our garden, so she babysat for us on a Wednesday night so we could go for a 10k bike ride. We also have a firepit in the garden so I like sitting around that.”
Last summer, she took a break from social media.
She said: “It felt like it made a big difference. I’ve been reading more, I’ve started listening to audiobooks and I’ve been using my time in different ways.”A friend said ‘The pressure of being stuck at home and working under one roof put too much strain on the relationship’ GettyLaura said: ‘Our children are and always will be our number one priority’[/caption]
