From unfun hamsters to dogs chewing clothes — your pet queries answered

Sab, 08/01/2022 - 21:00

HE is on a mission to help our pets  . . . and is here to answer YOUR questions.

Sean, who is the head vet at tailored pet food firm tails.com, has helped with owners’ queries for ten years. He says: “If your pet is acting funny or is under the weather, or you want to know about nutrition or exercise, just ask. I can help keep pets happy and healthy.” If you want him to answer a question for YOU simply email him at vet@the-sun.co.uk

Q) MY daughter loves her new hamster but it’s not turning out to be as much

fun as she’d hoped, because it sleeps all day.At nighttime we hear its squeaky wheel going round.

Is there a way of changing its nocturnal habits?

A) Uh, oh, this is why I always do recommend “research, research, research” before getting any pet. Hamsters are nocturnal.

Taking hamsters out during the evenings, with the lights down and letting them play in a safe run, can be fun.

But it isn’t a great idea to wake them in the day, as they can get cranky.

I recommend guinea pigs or rats as small pets for kids. Hamsters and even rabbits are not the best choice.

Got a question for Sean?

SEND your queries to vet@the-sun.co.uk.

Q) I HAVE an eight-year-old mixed- breed dog called Louie who has started chewing clothes, even pulling them off radiators.

He also chewed a dog towel, making himself sick. His teeth look good and I take him for a walk every morning. He also suffers with his anal glands.

Any advice, please?

Janet Staunch, Hartlepool

A) I’m assuming that Louie is on a complete and balanced diet formulated by a professional animal nutritionist. Right?

If so, we can rule out nutritional issues causing him to eat unusual things — a condition called pica.

Aside from that, it could be a behavioural issue. Is he bored? Does he have appropriate toys to chew?

You could try to occupy him with puzzle feeders so that he has to work for his food.

It’s fun and provides great mental stimulation, which will tire him out and perhaps help curb his destructive habits.

More daily exercise and interaction will help, too.

Q) JAKE, my five-year-old Labrador, suffers from severe epileptic fits.

He’s a lovely dog but the fits are becoming worse and a recent one lasted 20 minutes.

He is on medication from the vet. We are at our wits’ end. Please advise what medication he should be on.

Stephen Kinsey, Rotherham

A) It’s tricky for me to give detailed advice without being Jake’s vet and knowing his full medical history.

There are several options for treating epilepsy in dogs, and I know it’s scary to go back to your vet saying the treatment isn’t working, for fear of getting bad news.

But your vet will want to discuss new options and make sure both you and Jake are happy.

There are several medications, like Phenobarbitone, Bromide, Gabapentin and Diazepam, used to treat epilepsy in dogs.

Sometimes it takes a bit of experimenting with treatment combinations. Go back to the vet to discuss next steps, and they’ll get things under control.

Q) MY two dogs Ronnie and Reggie love to play with others we meet in the park.

But I’ve noticed other owners often call their dogs away, as they think they’re aggressive.

I don’t think my two mean any harm, but how can you distinguish between rough play and fighting?

Robert Dunstan, Leeds

A) Are Ronnie and Reggie Staffies, by any chance? Some breeds like Staffies can look very mouthy, with a lot of teeth showing, during rough play That’s scary to people not familiar with these breeds.

There’s no hard and fast rule, it depends on the other dogs they play with and their comfort level.

Some rough play is great, and sometimes we read too much into it or put human feelings on to it.

Dogs play with their mouths and it can look aggressive. The time to cool it down is if the other dog is showing fearful body language, or real aggression kicks in.

Star of the week Francisco the pig is our pet of the week

PAMPERED pig Francisco hates being outside so much that he lives in his own bedroom with his caring owner Morag Sangster and her husband John Ryan.

When the couple, of Clyde Valley, South Lanarks, rescued him they tried to put the pot-bellied porker, five, outside but he refused.

Morag, 55, said: “He was a rescue because he’d been bought as a micro pig but grew and grew. He’d got used to sleeping in a bedroom and when we took him outside he ran back in.

“He is like a real-life Babe from the film and is a surrogate parent to our dogs, lambs and chicken. The four dogs share a bedroom with him. They all jostle for position to cuddle in to his warm tummy.”

How to keep bill shock at bay

ONLY 3.4 million dogs in the UK out of an estimated 12 million have insurance to cover them for illness.

The reason most pet owners go to the vet is because of canine skin conditions, costing on average £483 to £755 to treat.

ShutterstockInsurance can help with expensive pet bills[/caption]

The second most common ailment is stomach problems, including a dog eating something it shouldn’t, with X-ray costs averaging £289.

In third place is ear infections, at £789, followed by eye disorders at £389, and joint and tendon injuries costing £1,349 to treat.

Pet insurance comparison site money.co.uk, which collated the figures, said having no cover could leave owners facing huge costs.

Salman Haqqi, of money.co.uk, said: “It can be difficult to manage unexpected vet bills.

“The type of illness and injury will affect the fees, with chronic conditions costing more than a simple infection.”

Builder Keith Dowling, 50, of Crayford, Kent, has faced almost £10,000 in vet bills with Delcee, his seven-year-old Parson Russell Terrier.

He didn’t have insurance when Delcee was struck with pancreatitis in 2015.

He said: “As we didn’t have pet insurance we had a large bill. We took out a policy straight afterwards. It gives us peace of mind.”

Following the discovery, Lylah then locks Dory in the basement and pays teens to set the house on fire.

“It definitely gets a bit loopy this season. It gets more extreme,” Alia Shawkat, who plays Dory, told E! ahead of season 5. “It definitely has a technicolor rainbow, kind of like, surreal, psychedelic vibe to it this year.”

Kate Middleton ‘rolled her eyes’ when pals mentioned Suits but DOESN’T moan about Meghan, insiders reveal

Sab, 08/01/2022 - 20:58

KATE Middleton once “rolled her eyes” at the mention of the hit TV show Suits – but never moans about Meghan Markle, insiders have revealed.

The Duchess of Cambridge is said to have once “jokingly rolled her eyes” at the mention of the legal drama Meghan starred in before she met Prince Harry.

But according to a pal, the eye roll was “the most they’ve ever seen of her views on Meghan”.

They told The Times Kate is “150 per cent more reserved than William,” who speaks frankly around his friends and family.

And despite previous rumoured tensions between Meghan and Kate, it’s believed the duchess keeps her feelings close to her chest.

She is said to have prioritised William after Harry and Meghan’s bombshell Oprah interview – “not how she felt about what Harry and Meghan had done”.

A source close to the Cambridges told The Times: “She has focused on personal support for William in what has been a really sad time in his life.

“She never predicted the degree of falling out between them.”

Most read in Fabulous TAT'S BAD I got the worst tattoo and cant stop crying - I told the artist the size COLD CALL I text my dead sister’s number and I couldn’t believe the response I got ROYAL ROW Wills & Charles 'furious' with Andy over huge legal bills as 'Queen cuts him off' DRESS DOWN I had to walk home naked when my dress fell apart - then the shop fat-shamed me SOAK IT IN I'm a paediatrician and this is how often you should be bathing your baby KEEP ABREAST I'm a bra fitter - the mistakes you're making & how often it needs washing

Wills himself is said to have told a friend “Catherine is a peacemaker”.

And when the royal party emerged from St George’s Chapel in Windsor after Prince Philip’s funeral, Kate broke the ice by chatting to Harry – before hanging back to allow him and William to talk.

But despite Kate’s peace-making skills, which she is also said to have worked behind the scenes on Harry and Wills at the unveiling of Diana’s statue last summer, her relationship with Meghan has not always been plain sailing.

In November 2018, it was reported “Meghan left Kate in tears” over her demands for Princess Charlotte’s bridesmaids dress during a “stressful” fitting.

It was then subsequently claimed that the “rift” began when Kate said the bridesmaids should follow royal protocol by wearing tights which Meghan disagreed with.

She has focused on personal support for William in what has been a really sad time in his life.

Insider close to William and Kate

Speaking during her Oprah interview, Meghan then said she had been the one to cry over the fittings – and it really upset her.

She told the talk show queen: “The narrative with Kate, which didn’t happen, was really, really difficult and something that I think that’s when everything changed really.”

Asked if she made Kate cry, the duchess added: “The reverse happened.

“A few days before the wedding she was upset about something, pertaining to… the flower girl dresses, and it made me cry. And it really hurt my feelings.

“There wasn’t a confrontation and I don’t think it’s fair to her to get into the details of that because she apologised, and I have forgiven her.

“What was hard to get over was being blamed for something that not only I didn’t do, but that happened to me.

“I’m not sharing that piece about Kate in any way to be disparaging to her.”

Of the “who made who cry” incident, a palace source reportedly said: “I’ve had hundreds of hours of conversations with her [Kate] and it never came up.

“I only ever heard from Meghan about that — a very different story from what she said to Oprah.”

Buckingham Palace has been approached for comment.

Chelsea player ratings: Lewis Hall is star man on stunning debut but Lukaku and Werner wasteful against Chesterfield

Sab, 08/01/2022 - 20:52

LEWIS HALL starred in Chelsea’s 5-1 win over non-League side Chesterfield in the FA Cup.

The European champions found themselves 4-0 up before half-time thanks to goals by Timo Werner, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Romelu Lukaku and Andreas Christensen.

GETTY IMAGESTeenager Lewis Hall, 17, was Man of the Match as Chelsea beat Chesterfield[/caption]

Hakim Ziyech added a fifth, securing Chelsea’s place in the Fourth Round of the cup.

The travelling Chesterfield fans had their moment though in the 80th minute.

Akwasi Asante pulled one back sending their fans wild.

But how does Simon Phillips rate the Blues’ performance?

Marcus Bettinelli – 7/10

He had VERY little to do but what he did have to do he did well and did his job on his Chelsea debut.

Looked very assured, comfortable and influential for Chelsea.

Callum Hudson-Odoi – 8

Scored a great goal and was really thriving against weaker opposition.

Really positive stuff from him as he looked to go forward at every chance from the unfamiliar left wing-back position.

Andreas Christensen – 7

Did well to follow up and get his headed goal for Chelsea, but obviously he had very little to do at the back and looked comfortable..

FREE BETS: GET OVER £2,000 IN NEW CUSTOMER DEALS

Malang Sarr – 8

He was thriving in the central defensive position and really taking his role seriously, looking to drive forward and actually being very calm when on the ball, making things happen from deep.

Lewis Hall – 9

What a debut for this lad. Just 17 years old and Chelsea’s best player.

Usually a midfielder but playing in a back three He was comfortable defensively, quick, energetic, up and down, great on the ball, and was heavily involved in three Chelsea goals. 

Hakim Ziyech – 6

He was probably one of the quieter players for Chelsea in the first half and couldn’t quite find his footing in the game.

He had some good contributions at times but wasn’t as lively as may have been expected. Took a decent penalty in the second half. 

Mateo Kovacic – 8

Only played 45 minutes but he was superb for Chelsea once again, the captain for the day started everything they did well and was the creative spark in midfield. 

ALAMYCaptain Mateo Kovacic turned in another stellar performance[/caption] Saul Niguez – 7

Had a silly booking early on and was a little quieter than most in the first half at least, but he did his job very well, tackled well, and was comfortable and safe in possession.

Christian Pulisic – 6

A lot like Ziyech, he was very quiet for Chelsea in the first half and failed to really take advantage of the lower level opposition.

Playing at wing-back he did some good things and looked a threat, winning the penalty, but was far from being Chelsea’s best player.

Romelu Lukaku – 6

Took his goal very well but he should have scored more to be honest with some great chances that he should have buried.

He did OK largely but certainly wasn’t the top firing Lukaku that we have seen so often.

Timo Werner – 6

Again, was in the right place at the right time for his goal in the first half and worked very hard.

But he wasn’t the best performer in the first 45 against weak opposition when you’d think he’d be thriving. 

SUBS

Ruben Loftus-Cheek (for Kovacic, HT) – 8

Came on and made things happen, driving from midfield for Chelsea, was even given the captains armband for the first time in his senior career.

Kai Havertz (for Lukaku, HT) – 7

Lively and was on the ball a lot, tried to make a difference in attack.

Lewis Baker (for Christensen, 58 mins) – 7

Such a naturally comfortable player that he slotted in and looked far from out of place, great cameo for Baker.

Harvey Vale (for Pulisic, 58 mins) – 7

Very talented player who looked like a threat every time he got on the ball.

Ross Barkley (for Hudson-Odoi, 65 mins) – 6

Came on and almost scored right away with a decent long range effort. Looked lively.

Lewis Baker makes second Chelsea appearance EIGHT YEARS after debut in FA Cup rout over Chesterfield

Sab, 08/01/2022 - 20:03

LEWIS BAKER finally made his second appearance for Chelsea – more than EIGHT years since his senior debut.

The 26-year-old Cobham academy product was introduced off the bench by Thomas Tuchel’s in Saturday’s FA Cup thrashing against Chesterfield.

ReutersLewis Baker made his second Chelsea appearance on Saturday – eight years after his debut[/caption]

Chelsea notched an impressive 5-1 win at a sold-out Stamford Bridge.

And Baker received a raucous welcome when he was subbed on with 30 minutes left to play.

Incredibly, the match was only Baker’s second appearance in a Chelsea shirt despite him arriving at the club in 2005.

The midfielder’s one and only appearance came eight years ago on January 5, 2014.

Jose Mourinho gave Baker a three-minute run out in the 2-0 win over Derby County at Pride Park.

Injury problems and various loan spells saw Baker eventually fall off the path to Chelsea’s starting XI.

But his Stamford Bridge appearance on Saturday is sure to boost his confidence tenfold.

Baker had been set to feature under Tuchel in last month’s Carabao Cup quarter-final clash at Brentford.

However, he was cruelly denied his chance to shine after testing positive for Covid on the eve of the game.

It now remains to be seen if Baker sticks around at Chelsea, with his contract up this summer.

The playmaker has already taken in various loan spells with the likes of Leeds and – most recently – Turkish side Trabzonspor.

I saw my best man with his hand up my new wife’s wedding dress

Sab, 08/01/2022 - 19:55

DEAR DEIDRE: I SAW my best man with his hand up my new wife’s wedding dress.

Stumbling upstairs in the hotel where we got married, it took me a while to find our bedroom and when I got in, I was obviously interrupting quite a moment.

I am now refusing to take calls from my best man after the incident For more advice from Dear Deidre

No issue is too small, too large or too embarrassing. Read our personal replies here.

My wife was laid back on the bed laughing and my best friend was reaching up inside her gown.

They looked so shocked to see me standing next to them and came up with some nonsense story about my wife’s garter cutting into her. My best friend was “helping her get the garter off”.

I’m 28, she’s 27 and my best friend is 29.

I stormed off and ended up passing out at the bar. The next morning I woke up to find myself undressed and back in the bridal suite bed.

My wife told me I was in such a state that four friends had to carry me to bed. She wasn’t very impressed and really went at me for my “embarrassing behaviour”.

She properly laid into me about my drinking and warned me our marriage would be the shortest in history if I didn’t cut back on the boozing. There was no apology for her behaviour and she refused to discuss what I’d seen.

I’ve told her she has a cheek after my discovery but she’s adamant nothing has happened between them and that they were just messing around.

I’ve been avoiding my best friend and feel so let down by him. He’s been calling me but so far I’ve ignored him.

I listened to one message where he apologised for “taking liberties” and blamed the amount he’d had to drink, saying he never would have touched her if he hadn’t been so drunk.

Most read in Dear Deidre NOT HAPPY Husband and family give me everything and I still cry every day NO BOUNDARIES New date has put me off by going to the loo in front of me LET DOWN I injured my penis having sex and then my boyfriend left me DEAR DEIDRE My sex addict husband says he's better - but still trying to contact escorts KEEP IT IN THE FAMILY My best mate keeps boasting about sleeping with his aunt SMOKE AND MIRRORS My partner spends £250 a week on cigarettes but complains he has no money

DEIDRE SAYS: Your new wife and best friend may have been messing around, but what they were doing was completely inappropriate and could very easily have led to more if you hadn’t arrived.

So far your wife hasn’t apologised and is laying all the blame at your door.

She has made such a fuss about your drinking to deflect attention from her own behaviour.

Be firm – even if you were drunk, that doesn’t excuse any cheating.

But if you are drinking so much you regularly pass out, then you also need to think about how your boozing is affecting you and your relationship.

In a quiet moment, sit down with your wife and explain you want to make your marriage work.

Ask her what improvements she needs and this is your opportunity to tell her what changes you also need.

Make it clear if you ever find her in such a compromising position again you’ll see that as the end of your marriage.

Contact wearewithyou.org.uk, which offers free, confidential help through local centres for those with drinking issues.

Husband and family give me everything and I still cry every day

Sab, 08/01/2022 - 19:52

DEAR DEIDRE: ON the surface I have everything I ever wanted.

I have a four-month-old baby girl, twin boys who are three and a hard-working and loving husband.

I wanted to be a parent but it is so much hard work For more advice from Dear Deidre

No issue is too small, too large or too embarrassing. Read our personal replies here.

We live in a big flat with a lovely shared garden.

I always wanted a big family and I love my husband very much so why do I cry every single day?

I’m 29 and my husband is 31.

My days are spent alone with the children as my ­husband works away from home for 14 hours a day.

I feel desperate. I love my children but I don’t feel that I have a worthwhile life at the moment.

My husband tries to cheer me up on his days off but mostly we are like ships in the night.

DEIDRE SAYS: You are right in the thick of it when it comes to the demanding stage of looking after children.

It’s really important not to bottle everything up, so talk to your husband about how you feel and ask him to take the children off your hands for at least a couple of hours to give you a break. And, most importantly, talk to your GP as soon as you can.

Please don’t struggle alone when help is available.

You may be spiralling into depression and it is important this is treated.

You are not alone in feeling this way. Being responsible for little ones 24/7 is demanding so do not underestimate how different you feel when worn out.

You can also contact an organisation called Home-Start (home-start.org.uk, 0800 068 63 68) which helps families with under-fives.

What Jurassic Park’s child stars look like all grown up – 23 years after the first film came out

Sab, 08/01/2022 - 19:52

JURASSIC Park fans will remember the scene that almost saw siblings Lex and Tim almost killed by a T-Rex as they hid inside a car.

In the 1993 film, John Hammond created an incredible theme park on Nublar Island off the coast of Costa Rica, filled with real-life dinosaurs.

AlamyLex was played by actress Ariana Richards[/caption] Universal studiosMeanwhile Tim was portrayed by Hollywood star Joseph Mazzello[/caption]

Youngsters Lex, played by Ariana Richards, and Tim, depicted by Joseph Mazzello, were among the group that tour the park to see some of the new dinosaurs.

But it quickly all goes wrong, as the park’s security system is disabled by an ill-meaning computer programmer, seeing the release of the Tyrannosaurus Rex.

The huge creature quickly hunts down the group as its prey, and attacks the tour vehicle they are travelling in, with Lex and Tim narrowly escaping.

Their terrified faces are sure to have stuck with the film’s fans – but with 23 years having passed since its release, the stars now look drastically different.

Now all grown up, both of the child stars have moved onwards with their careers, going on to star in a number of hit TV programmes and movies.

Lex actress Ariana, now 36, went on to win a number of Young Artist Awards for her acting prowess throughout her teens.

Following Jurassic Park, she went on to briefly star in the prequel, The Lost World, as well as films including Boy Meets World, Empty Nest and The Golden Girls.

The star then turned her attentions away from acting, and went on to study drama and art at college where she specialised in painting portraits.

In 2001 – the actress married Irishman and stunt performer Mark Aaron Bolton, and the pair welcomed a daughter together shortly after.

Having taken a step back from the silver screen, Ariana made her return in 2013 when she starred in Battledogs as Donna Voorhes.

Tim actor Joseph, now 38, saw his career go on leaps and bounds after his starring role in Jurassic Park, with a number of Hollywood credits.

He has acted in The Social Network, Shadowland, Bohemian Rhapsody and Beyond All Boundaries – as well as the Jurassic Park prequel.

New date has put me off by going to the loo in front of me

Sab, 08/01/2022 - 19:52

DEAR DEIDRE: I MET a really fit woman who I’ve been on a couple of dates with and I really fancied her.

I cooked her a nice meal – my show-stopper, beef and ale pie with mash ­ and we had a ­couple of glasses of wine.

Her lack of boundaries has put me off, I didn’t like it For more advice from Dear Deidre

No issue is too small, too large or too embarrassing. Read our personal replies here.

I’m 26 and she’s 27. Everything was going really well and we had great sex but then she ruined it all by going to the toilet in front of me while I was brushing my teeth.

I know we had just had sex but any mystery was ruined for me when she let it all hang out right there and then.

Then she assumed it was fine to borrow my toothbrush.

The next morning I was on the loo and she barged straight in.

When I asked her to leave, she told me to stop being silly and carried on.

My mates think I’m being ridiculous but I really don’t think I want another date – not if she’s going to keep barging in on me in the loo.

Perhaps I’m too old-fashioned. Do you think I’m being silly?

DEIDRE SAYS: If you really liked this woman before you discovered her relaxed attitude to privacy, it’s worth explaining to her that you have a different approach and ask her if she will respect your thoughts.

If she is dismissive again, you have your answer – it would be better to move on.

Slum council flat is not fit to live in and my health is suffering

Sab, 08/01/2022 - 19:52

DEAR DEIDRE: MY council flat isn’t fit to live in and yet the local authority won’t do a thing about it.

I have severe back problems and have had several operations but live in constant pain.

For more advice from Dear Deidre

No issue is too small, too large or too embarrassing. Read our personal replies here.

I have to fill a bucket with water in the kitchen, carry it through to the bathroom and use it to flush the broken toilet.

We also fill up the bucket with hot water to wash as the shower is broken.

The bedrooms are damp and we can’t open the windows, which is making my daughter’s asthma worse.

I am 53 and my daughter is 17. I can hardly walk let alone lug heavy buckets around, yet when I complain to the council, nothing happens.

Our situation is getting to me and I feel so low that my daughter must live like this.

When does The Masked Singer 2022 start on ITV?

Sab, 08/01/2022 - 19:21

THE Masked Singer is back on our screens for a third season.

A brand new line-up of celebrity contestants are hiding under crazy costumes.

RexCelebrity judges were left in shock as the winner of Season 2 of The Masked Singer was revealed[/caption] When does The Masked Singer 2022 start?

The third season of The Masked Singer premiered on New Year’s Day (Saturday, 1 January).

And it will continue at 7pm on ITV on January 8, 2022.

The Masked Singer 2022 UK Live Tour kicks off on April 2 in Liverpool and finishes in Wembley on April 18, giving a chance to everyone to see the bonkers costumes and star judges live.

Who’s in The Masked Singer line-up?

The identity of the contestants will remain a secret until they are unmasked one by one in each episode.

In the previous two series, celebrity line-up included a mix of singers, actors, athletes and even politicians.

Most read in News TV SHOCK SPLIT Laura Hamilton split from husband after marriage hit breaking point in lockdown HOL OF A DEAL Holly Willoughby given time off from This Morning to film show for rival BBC off screen Holly Willoughby reveals secret job in Switzerland on Saturday Kitchen debut FAKE SHAKE Shaken baby 'science' that convicted Louise Woodward is 'voodoo', claims expert DENISE'S PAIN Denise van Outen ditches fiancé over his phone sex and dates with other women SUSEARNER Susanna Reid overtakes Holly Willoughby as TV's best paid woman with £1.1m deal

From Girls Aloud’s Nicola Roberts, Spice Girls star Mel B, Katherine Jenkins, former Secretary of State Alan Johnson and comic Jason Manford, to Love Actually’s Martine McCutcheon, comedian Lenny Henry and presenter Sue Perkins, all star contestants have to try to hide their identity.

In the next season, 12 new singers will hide beneath another collection of crazy, over-the-top costumes:

  • Chandelier
  • Bagpipes
  • Lionfish
  • Doughnuts
  • Traffic Cone
  • Panda
  • Rockhopper
  • Mushroom
  • Firework
  • Poodle
  • Snow Leopard
  • Robobunny

While usually some of the costumes contain a clue to the singer’s identity – for example, ex-Nottingham Forest footballer Teddy Sheringham was a tree – that is not always the case.

Who hosts The Masked Singer?

Presenter Joel Dommett is back to host the show once again, after winning the hearts of the public in the first two seasons.

Because the masked singers’ identities are kept hidden even from the host, Joel told the Mirror he had no idea who a few of the celebrities were, resulting in some funny and awkward revelations.

He admitted he didn’t recognise A-ha singer Morten Harket when he came out from under his Viking costume, which lead to “the most awkward interview” he had ever done.

Joel said: “The problem is that I don’t know everyone in the world when they are revealed.

“You can guarantee the less I know them, the more energy I put into the reveal.”

Who are The Masked Singer judges?

Everyone from the celebrity panel in the previous seasons has confirmed they are returning in January.

Television presenter Davina McCall, singer-songwriter Rita Ora, broadcaster Jonathan Ross and British comedian Mo Gilligan are all joining the celebrity panel to try to guess who is hiding behind the costumes.

In the previous seasons, guest panellists such as series one winner Nicola Roberts, also made an appearance.

Who won The Masked Singer in 2021?

In February 2021, singer Joss Stone, dressed as Sausage, was crowned winner of season 2.

In the final, she beat Aston Merrygold as Robin, Ne-Yo as Badger, keeping the panel and the public guessing until the very end.

The singer, who was heavily pregnant beneath her costume, shocked the judges as she revealed her identity.

Speculations about who the Sausage was, included Stacey Solomon and Sheridan Smith as the two most-likely to be under the mask, but eagle-eyed fans of the show followed the clues to guess that it was actually Joss.

“When she was single and I was single we’d go out for dinner on Valentine’s Day together.

“Last year we went out as a couple. It was a little strange because we’ve had a working relationship for so long.”

In August 2015, Dec shared romantic snaps from the couple’s big dayPA:Press Association

He continued: “It’s a mixture of all those things with an element of comedy panel show thrown in as well.

“There’s a real surprise and a real guessing game in who the celebrities are, fun in watching us struggle to work out who they are, and the fun of great performances but with the additional joy of seeing them in these amazing costumes.”

McCall is excited with the new addition of comedian Mo Gilligan who has provided the show with loads of laughs.

Speaking on the Jonathan Ross show, she said: “I love Mo. You make me laugh. When you start laughing, I laugh. You preempt all your stories with a laugh. I love it, I just love being around you, you laugh non-stop.”

She also said her decision to sign up for the show was a “no brainer” and told BBC News: “I fell in love with the costumes. The celebrities loved being anonymous and going out there as anyone they wanted to be. It’s an opportunity to reinvent yourself.”

Later that year, his first comedy special Mo Gilligan: Momentum, was released on Netflix.

He added: “The costumes are so, so good. There’s someone in there singing and they’re dancing. The people are changing their voice as well. Even to be part of it was a huge honour. Working with you guys. For me I was like, wow this is a big deal.”

Who hosts The Masked Singer?

Joel Dommett will return to the show as the host.

Fans immediately flooded to gush over the snap, with one writing: “It’s the best thing in the world to be born with your bestie.”

A second chimed in: “So precious,” as a third wrote of the adorable snapshot: “Stop it, I’m crying so hard. This is too cute.”

Leigh-Anne shares her young twins with fiancé Andre Gray, 30 – and the parents are yet to share the names and genders of their four-month-old kids.

It comes weeks after the Little Mix star shared a sweet snap of her rarely-seen children as they posed in matching pyjamas on Christmas Day.

Leigh-Anne could be seen matching with her family in red-and-white striped pyjamas covered in Christmas designs as she posed in front of the tree.

Leigh-Anne joked in the caption they had also tried to get their two “fur babies” in the photo, but the dogs wouldn’t sit still for long enough.

“Insta vs Reality of trying to get two bubbas in a family photo let alone two fur babies,” she wrote. “Merry Christmas from the Graynock’s!”

F1 star George Russell and girlfriend Carmen Montero Mundt relax in St Barts as he prepares to partner Lewis Hamilton

Sab, 08/01/2022 - 18:18

GEORGE RUSSELL is making the most of his holiday in the Caribbean before a career-changing move to Mercedes to team up with Lewis Hamilton next season.

Russell, 23, and partner Carmen Montero Mundt were spotted strolling arm-in-arm on a romantic walk on a St Barts beach.

Chilling out on the private beach of the luxurious Eden Rock hotel during the island’s holiday season, Carmen wore a one-piece swimsuit as she hugged the ex-Williams driver.

The pair have reportedly been together since 2020, with the beauty believed to work at a City investment firm.

Russell was confirmed as Lewis Hamilton’s Mercedes team-mate towards the end of last season.

He replaces Valtari Bottas, with the Finnish veteran joining Alfa Romeo Racing.

Russell achieved his first and only F1 podium with Williams at the 2021 Belgian Grand Prix.

But the Norfolk-born racer is hoping to be in the thick of the championship race next season.

There is huge excitement around Mercedes combining the two British drivers, despite them being at separate ends of their careers.

However, there are fears that Hamilton may be considering retirement.

Having cancelled all media duties, Hamilton has not spoken publicly since he missed out on winning the title on the final lap in Abu Dhabi.

On the move to Mercedes to pair with Hamilton, Russell has previously stated: “I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t absolutely buzzing.

“It’s a huge opportunity and one I want to grab with both hands.

“But I’m under no illusions as to the scale of the challenge, it’s going to be a steep learning curve.”

The F1 season officially kicks off with the first race of the season in Bahrain in mid-March.

All the signs A Place in the Sun’s Laura Hamilton had ended her marriage as she admits surprise split

Sab, 08/01/2022 - 18:17

LAURA Hamilton has admitted she never thought she’d say her marriage was over as she announced she’d called it quits with her husband Alex Goward.

But here we take a look at the clues behind Laura’s marriage breakdown after 13 years together.

Moving out of family home InstagramLaura Hamilton’s marriage is over[/caption] InstagramShe has sold her family home[/caption]

A DAY before revealing she was separating from her husband Alex Goward, Laura Hamilton wrote a moving post about leaving her family home.

The couple have been living there for nine years after using property developer Laura’s skills to renovate it.

It’s where they brought up their children – eight-year-old Rocco and daughter Tahlia, six – in the house in Surrey.

The TV presenter says it’s the longest time she’s ever lived in the same home.

Laura explained they had made “incredible memories” there, but wouldn’t allow “fear” to stop her “growing”.

She wrote on Instagram: “I wish I could say I look like this photo right now but I don’t because, since the start of the new year we have been packing up our home ready to move…

“Today we close the door and say goodbye to a home that we have loved and enjoyed for the last 9 years -the longest I have lived anywhere in my entire adult life!”

Cryptic post about change being ‘scary’ InstagramLaura Hamilton hinted at the split yesterday before making an official announcement[/caption]

BEFORE admitting she was newly-single, Laura wrote a cryptic post about being “scared” of change.

But the presenter told how she wanted to overcome fear so she could grow.

Talking about leaving her home for nine years, Laura wrote on Instagram: “It was a home that we transformed (as you can see in the photos), but MORE importantly it was a home where we created some incredible memories that we will cherish forever…

“Change can be scary but you know what is scarier? Allowing fear to stop you from growing, evolving and progressing.

“When it feels scary to jump that’s exactly when you jump, otherwise you just end up staying in the same place your whole life, and that I can’t do.”

Husband Alex ‘wiped off’ social media InstagramShe was with Alex Goward for 13 years[/caption]

LAURA hasn’t posted about her husband Alex for months amid their secret split.

And all photos of the insurance broker appear to have been removed from her Instagram account.

Instead Laura has used her platform to post about spending time with her two children.

Celebrating ‘endings’

As she welcomed in the New Year, Laura marked 2022 with a positive quote about the future.

She said: “Celebrate endings, for they precede new beginnings.

“Today is the first blank page of a 365-page book. Write a good one.”

She showed off the back of her jumper, which shockingly appeared to say “d***”.

But after getting comments from her followers, including Dean Gaffney who asked: “Who you calling a d*ck!”, Laura clarified it actually said “rock”.

NEWCASTLE fell to a humiliating Third Round FA Cup defeat to League One minnows Cambridge at St James’ Park.

First signing of the Toon Saudi era Kieran Trippier made his debut, but was unable to swiftly turn Newcastle’s woes around.

Cambridge striker Joe Ironside got the only goal of the game, adjusting himself well inside the packed penalty area to sweep the winner home.

His FA Cup strike happens to be his 12th of the campaign, putting him seven short of Newcastle’s overall tally for the season.

Dimitar Mitov was a like a man possessed in between the sticks for the visitors.

The Bulgarian shot-stopper pulled off a wonderful save to deny Newcastle right at the death to prevent the game from going to extra-time.

Newcastle legend Alan Shearer blasted the performance as ‘pathetic’.

Gary Lineker posted a picture of the angry-looking Shearer to Twitter, who was trying to prepare himself for the BBC’s coverage of Hull vs Everton.
