Cops clash with anti-vaccine passport protesters across Europe as countries tighten rules to fight Omicron wave

Sab, 08/01/2022 - 17:37

COPS have clashed with anti-vaccine passport protesters across Europe as countries tighten up measures to tackle Omicron.

France, Italy, Austria and Germany all saw angry demonstrations against the measures, with some turning violent.

Demonstrators took to the streets of Paris in response to President Emmanuel Macron’s vow to “p*** off” the unvaccinated.

In the French capital protesters retorted by adopting his slangy wording, chanting “We’ll p*** you off”.

Others carried signs saying “No to the vaccine pass”, a reference to Macron’s push to require proof of vaccination to enter venues such as cafes, bars and museums.

Covid booster jabs protect against Omicron and offer the best chance to get through the pandemic, health officials have repeatedly said.

The Sun’s Jabs Army campaign is helping get the vital extra vaccines in Brits’ arms to ward off the need for any new restrictions.

French TV images showed skirmishes between protesters and police at one site.

Protesters also rallied through the streets in Marseille, Nantes and Le Mans among other cities.

In Italy, there were protests against mandatory vaccinations for people over 50 and stricter rules for the unvaccinated.

Under the new regulations, they will not be able to do a variety of activities including using public transport and sitting at restaurants.

Germany saw police and demonstrators clash in the cities of Magdeburg and Schwerin.

The Austrian capital Vienna saw protests against the government’s measures to curb Covid.

The Austrian government is pressing ahead with plans to implement plans to make vaccination compulsory, starting in February.

The country has seen an increase in Covid cases after infections slowed during a lockdown in November and December last year.

People in France already have to show either proof of vaccination or a negative test to enter restaurants and bars and use inter-regional trains. B

But with Omicron infections surging, the government wants to drop the test option.

France recorded more than 300,000 new coronavirus infections for the second time in a week on Friday.

Hospitalisations, including COVID-19 patients in intensive care are rising steadily, putting the healthcare system under strain.

Earlier this month, police armed with batons and shields clashed with thousands of anti-lockdown protesters in the Netherlands.

Crowds gathered in Amsterdam‘s Museum Square to object against Covid-19 measures and vaccinations – despite a country-wide ban on group meet-ups.

UK Covid deaths pass 150,000 since pandemic began as daily cases drop for fourth day in a row

Sab, 08/01/2022 - 17:24

THE grim number of Covid deaths in the UK has now passed 150,000 since the beginning of the pandemic while cases drop for the fourth day in a row.

A further 146,390 people have tested positive for Covid today, even less after the  178,250 cases reported yesterday.

GettyCovid deaths in the UK have passed 150,000[/caption]

Sadly the number of people who have died of Covid in the UK since the beginning of that pandemic now stands at 150,057 with 313 more deaths reported today.

A string of hugely positive studies show Omicron IS milder than other strains, with the first official UK report revealing the risk of hospitalisation is 50 to 70 per cent lower than with Delta.

Covid booster jabs protect against Omicron and offer the best chance to get through the pandemic, health officials have repeatedly said.

The Sun’s Jabs Army campaign is helping get the vital extra vaccines in Brits’ arms to ward off the need for any new restrictions.

It comes as research has shown that Omicron could be 99 per cent less deadly than other Covid variants in a glimmer of hope that the worst of the pandemic might be over.

Sajid Javid revealed that Omicron is up to 90 per cent milder for boosted and a killer combination of boosters and groundbreaking antiviral drugs have put the country on a much better footing to fight Covid.

Experts believe that coronavirus could be as mild as the common cold within months and the world will be able to function normally again.

Dr Mike Tildesley said the world will be able to function normally again soon and previously questioned the need for curbs.

Omicron is now responsible for the majority of cases in the UK and has taken over from the Delta variant.

Data from the government also revealed that cases are still rising in over 90 per cent of areas in the UK.

According to the latest Scottish Government figures, there are 1,362 people in hospital with Covid with 48 of them being in intensive care.

The figures also show there were 12,602 new cases of Covid reported, although there are delays in people receiving results from PCR tests.

There were 26 new reported deaths of people who have tested positive for the virus.

A Scottish Government spokesperson said: “There continue to be large volumes of tests being processed by labs; this and the holiday weekend have impacted turnaround times resulting in delays between specimens being taken and results being received and reported.

“Public Health Scotland are continuing to monitor the situation.”

Mr Javid also warned that relaxing testing for travellers could cause another lockdown.

The Health Secretary is understood to have cautioned Boris Johnson before holiday checks were eased this week – but was overruled.

Pre-departure and PCR tests are being axed for arrivals into Britain because Omicron is now so widespread.

But the fact that the variant is so much milder, combined with Britain’s aggressive booster campaign, means deaths and patients in ICU remain low.

Jordan discovered a collection of love letters from his former romance in his bedroom which left him ‘heartbroken’.

Jordan was 14 years old when the pair met in Perpignan, France on a rugby trip.

The now 25-year-old remembers he went for a swim at the hotel pool where he was staying and met a 13-year-old girl named Katie who he “liked the look of”.

He told HullLive: “She made me laugh and smile.”

The young romance was strained when he returned back home to East Yorkshire and Katie went back to her home in the West Midlands.

Whilst the two were separated, Katie sent Jordan a string of love letters in which she expressed how much she “loved him”.

He said that reading the letters made him “heartbroken”, and after all this time it “feels like I have lost a loved one”.

The pair stayed in touch after their holiday romance but lost contact after a long time of distance.

Jordan said: “Now I have found these letters, I want to see if I can rekindle the love and ask her questions.”

Jordan shared a picture of some of the letters, and said: “Anyone know a Katie from West Midlands?

“Get in touch, we will have a chat, I miss you I remember we was together on holiday about 12 years ago.”

Users on Facebook were rooting for Jordan to find her again, one user said: “That’s my neck of the woods.. might know her.”

Sab, 08/01/2022 - 17:17

A PLACE In The Sun’s Laura Hamilton admitted “change can be scary” before revealing her marriage was over.

The TV presenter told fans she was moving out of her family home in Surrey after nine years.

InstagramLaura Hamilton hinted at the split yesterday before making an official announcement[/caption] InstagramShe was with Alex Goward for 13 years[/caption]

The next day, Laura announced she’d split from her husband Alex Goward after 13 years together.

The day before revealing her marriage breakdown, Laura posted a video to show how the couple had transformed the property where they brought up their children.

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!

“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.”

Laura started presenting A Place In The Sun in 2011 and has since become a fan favourite.

She first began developing properties at just 19 years old before turning her passion into a career.

Laura married insurance broker Alex in 2012 – three years after they started dating.

They share two children together, eight-year-old Rocco and a daughter Tahlia, six.

Despite a seemingly happy marriage, Laura revealed the surprise split in a statement on Instagram.

Laura said: “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 and we would respect privacy for our family at this time.”

Alongside her message to fans, Laura shared an image which read: “Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”

The TV star has turned off comments on her Instagram post, stopping followers from leaving messages underneath.

Throughout their relationship, the pair have had to endure lengthy spells away from each other while Laura flies all over Europe to film her hit show.

Sherrie Hewson reveals the celebrity she always thought she’d marry – and why she’s ditching dating apps for good

Sab, 08/01/2022 - 17:17

WHEN she first laid eyes on comedian Les Dennis 40 years ago, Sherrie Hewson thought she’d found her future husband.

It didn’t matter that they were both already married to other people, the Benidorm star, 71, was convinced that one day they would end up together.

Sherrie Hewson has been single since splitting from husband Ken Boyd in 2011 Sherrie first met Les Dennis doing comedy sketches and thought they would marry one day

But it wasn’t meant to be; they’ve never been single at the same time, and Les, 68, is now happily married to Claire Nicholson – his third wife after splitting from Lynne Webster and Britain’s Got Talent judge Amanda Holden.

Speaking to The Sun, Sherrie said: “When I first met Les we were very young and I don’t know why but I thought, ‘I’ll marry him in the end’.

“But obviously that hasn’t happened. We’ve both been married to other people the entire time.”

Les and Sherrie first worked together on Russ Abbot’s Madhouse series back in 1980, and have stayed close mates ever since.

They recently reunited on a UK tour of Kay Mellor’s Fat Friends The Musical, where they star alongside Lee Mead and Jessica Ellis.

Sherrie said it’s nice to be back treading the boards with her old pal, adding: “Although when we work together we do moan like an old married couple.”

Christine Lampard shares picture of rarely seen stepdaughter Isla in matching coats LOVE SNUB I was ghosted by TOWIE star after I told him I'm transgender, says Jessica Alves Ditching dating apps

Nottinghamshire-born Sherrie has been single since her divorce from Ken Boyd in 2011 after he admitted to cheating on her.

She has dipped her foot in the online dating pool but now believes she’s destined to remain single and won’t be returning to apps after being bombarded with filth.

Sherrie lamented: “I really don’t understand that kind of explicit enjoyment that people get out of knowing what shock you’d have on your face because it’s an explicit picture of a penis.

“When I got one I was like, ‘Oh my god, I haven’t seen one of those in 15 years’.

“And I didn’t want to see one of them again, thank you very much. It was just horrible.”

The star, who has done stints on Coronation Street, Crossroads and Emmerdale as well as Loose Women and Celebrity Big Brother, swears off having another romance before she dies.

She claims it is because a lot of blokes who chat to her on dating apps expect her to be the same as her Benidorm character Joyce Temple Savage, whom she played between 2012 to 2019.

When I got [a penis pic] I was like, ‘Oh my god, I haven’t seen one of those in 15 years’. And I didn’t want to see one of them again, thank you very much

Sherrie Hewson

But Sherrie insists she is nothing like her “b***h” alter-ego.

“She was a right madam. She was very curt with everyone. Joyce thought she was absolutely sensational and that everyone else was as common as muck,” she said.

“It was wonderful to play. But it’s not who I am.”

It comes just a year after she exclusively told The Sun she’d be up for dating again provided it was a “young Robert Redford or a Clint Eastwood”.

Family first

Now, her life is about her family rather than chasing a new lover.

Sherrie spends most of her time when not working seeing her daughter Keeley and her three grandchildren Oliver, 15, Molly, 11, and Rosie, two.

But for the first time since she welcomed her only child, Sherrie was forced to spend Christmas alone due to fears around Covid.

With the rising number of cases and infectious Omicron variant, the actress and her family took the decision to isolate from each other to ensure no one got sick.

But it is a sacrifice Sherrie was willing to make to prevent the country from going into yet another lockdown.

She fears more restrictions would have a terrifying impact on people because of how lonely it can be.

Sherrie said: “We’ve done it before and if it happens again it will be so much harder because we know what to expect.

“My family are just 10 minutes away but if I can’t see them again, I honestly don’t know what I’ll do.”

During last year’s lockdown Sherrie admits she ate and drank too much because there was little else for her to do.

Lost loved ones

The loss of her brother Brett Hutchinson, who died in April aged 71 from a brain tumour, also saw her turn to booze in a bid to numb her consuming grief.

Almost a year on, things are brighter for Sherrie and she can feel her brother watching over her.

She said: “Like my dad, he’s always with me, but I can’t think about either of them too much or I’ll just cry.”

Sherrie plays the role of Slimming Club boss Julia Fleshman in Fat Friends, whom she says is like a “pantomime villain”.

The comedy has been adapted from the sitcom, which ran from 2000 to 2005 and originally starred Ruth Jones, James Corden, Sheridan Smith and Alison Steadman, who all went on to appear in Gavin & Stacey.

She said: “There is nobody to put me down in the play. Julia is an absolute b***h.

“She’s not nice at all and it’s just fabulous to play.”

Sherrie Hewson stars in the UK and Ireland tour of Fat Friends The Musical, from 14th January – 23rd July 2022 – fatfriendsmusical.com.

Savers built up £1.7 TRILLION in savings – and are ready to splash the cash on holidays and restaurants, experts say

Sab, 08/01/2022 - 17:13

SAVERS have built up a stash of cash worth £1.7 TRILLION over the past few years – and experts reckon now is the time that they’ll splash out.

In the turmoil of the last two years, Brits have been saving for a rainy day, especially as they haven’t been able to splurge on holidays and meals out like they used to.

GettyBrits have been forced into saving over the past two years but now they’re ready to spend, experts say[/caption]

The mega estimated £1.7trillion pot works out to be equivalent to £412 a month per household, sitting aside ready to be spent.

We’ve seen some savers even able to save more than that with their own nifty tricks and challenges set-up to both entertain themselves and ready their own emergency fund for harder times.

Since 2020, industries in the UK have been shut down and reopened, only to be shut down and reopened again, and the volatile restrictions have only made savers cautious of their spends – or unable to use them at all.

At some points tough pandemic restrictions meant restaurants closed and holidays were cancelled.

Now things are beginning to slowly return to normal, experts believe that consumers will be ready to go back out and spend their hard-earned savings once more.

Speaking to The Express, retail expert Richard Hyman said: “People do want to spend but at the same time many are cautious. They understand that some of the money they accumulated might be better used to set aside.”

That’s because things like energy prices are continuing to rocket, and the cost of living is still on the up, despite the fresh outlook on the year.

Some have even had to face the harsh decision between heating and eating as they decide how best to use their spends after an expensive Christmas last year.

But Brits have reportedly tucked away £266billion since the pandemic began, according to analysis from investment management firm Bowmore Financial Planning.

The value of those savings has risen by £11.5billion a month in two years too, compared to just £4.6billion a month in the two years before.

That means that the estimated overall cash pile for the nation has reached £1.7trillion.

But it’s not only the pandemic restrictions sealing everyone off at home that have contributed to the savings.

Experts say that a rise in National Insurance rates could have triggered a harder look at finances as families look to self-insure for any more price hikes too.

But that being said, shoppers reportedly spent more on Black Friday and for Christmas too as they had the cash to spare before bills hit hard.

With the January blues too, travel operators have reported an increase in bookings for summer holidays.

Especially now that the Government has announced that pre-departure PCR tests will be scrapped, more jet-setters are interested in splurging on getaways.

According to The Express, flight prices are up to 71% cheaper than before the pandemic for some destinations for UK travellers.

The sudden interest in holiday bookings was even encouraged by Chancellor Rishi Sunak who said it was “absolutely fantastic” that Brits were making keen bookings and that it will be sure to drive Britain’s economic recovery.

Kanye West’s new girlfriend Julia Fox admitted she’s a ‘die-hard’ Kardashians fan & has watched KUWTK since it premiered

Sab, 08/01/2022 - 17:10

JULIA Fox admitted she has been a “die-hard” Kardashians fan for 15 years, watching the show since its 2007 premiere.

The Uncut Gems star has emerged as Kanye West’s newest love interest as he strives to make his ex-wife Kim Kardashian “jealous.”

GettyJulia confessed she’s a ‘die-hard’ fan of KUWTK[/caption] RexShe’s watched the show since its 2007 premiere[/caption] AFPJulia and Kanye recently announced their newfound relationship[/caption]

Julia, 31, opened up about her admiration for the Kardashian clan after following the famous family for years on their E! reality show.

On the December 17th episode of her podcast show, Forbidden Fruits, she asked her co-host Niki Takesh: “Can we talk about the Kim and Kanye divorce?

“Wait, can we talk about Kim and Pete Davidson, though? I’m gonna miss ‘Keeping Up,’” she confessed, as the long-running show finally called it quits in Summer of 2020.

She continued: “I have been watching ‘Keeping Up’ since it first came out in 2007 when watching it was embarrassing.”

Julia then referred to herself as a “die-hard OG fan”, adding: “I wanted them to be my family… You feel like you know them.”

KEEPING UP WITH KANYE

The actress has been the center of attention after her newfound romance with Kanye came to fruition.

In an article with Interview Magazine this week, she explained: “I met Ye in Miami on New Year’s Eve and it was an instant connection.

“His energy is so fun to be around. He had me and my friends laughing, dancing, and smiling all night.”

The pair has been spotted on romantic dinners at both Carbone Miami and New York, and were even seen hitting a Broadway performance of “Slave Play.”

‘JEALOUSY’ TACTICS

Despite the seemingly lighthearted nature of his new love interest, a source recently revealed that Kanye has been using Julia as a tactic to allegedly get under the skin of his estranged wife Kim Kardashian.

Kim, who has a blossoming relationship with SNL star Pete Davidson, was married to the Donda rapper for seven years prior to their February divorce.

“It’s a desperate play for attention. There’s no other explanation when he chooses … [Fox] to go public with,” the source told Page Six.

“He publicly fights for his family back, and then he’s linked to all these different girls. It’s very strange,” they continued.

Another insider exclusively told The Sun that Kim feels the public dates with Julia are a “desperate attempt to make her jealous.”

“Kim thinks it’s comical Kanye went from begging her to come back to showcasing his new girl all over the city within days. 

“She knows it’s not serious and is just typical hijinks from Kanye,” the source told The Sun. 

“Kim thinks it’s another desperate attempt to make her jealous. She honestly doesn’t care, she’s very over him at this point so his little game isn’t working.”

MOVING ON

Julia announced her new relationship with Kanye West shortly after her split with husband Peter Artemiev in a photoshoot released on January 7.

Kim and Pete went official after she guest-starred on SNL in October.

The couple recently whisked away for a romantic vacation in the Bahamas as they shared photos from the tropical location.

SIDNEY Poitier made headlines in January 2022 after it was announced he had passed away at the age of 94.

Following his tragic passing, many started to wonder about the actor’s dating history and his affair with Diahann Carroll.

Born July 17, 1935, Carroll was known as an American actress, singer, model, and activist who became a household name following her roles in Carmen Jones and Porgy & Bess in the 1950s.

Over the years, she has starred in multiple films and television shows including Julia, Claudine, and A Different World.

She has also had recurring roles in Grey’s Anatomy and White Collar, where she portrayed the role of June.

Throughout the course of her career, she also won a number of awards including a Tony and Golden Globe Award. She also received five Emmy nominations.

In 2019, she tragically passed away at the age of 84, following a battle with breast cancer.

Did she have an affair with Sidney Poitier?

Carroll and Poitier’s history dates back to 1959 after they both starred in Porgy & Bess.

They later joined forces again in 1961 for the film Paris Blues.

Prior to Carroll’s death, she released a 2008 memoir titled “The Legs Are the Last To Go,” where she claimed to have had an affair with Poitier in 1963, stating that he convinced her to get a divorce from Monte Kay so they could be together.

After following through with her side of the alleged agreement, she was then reportedly supposed to move into a 10-room apartment, but things had changed.

“He changed the locks so I couldn’t get in [to the apartment]. Then he made me write him a check to offset his purchase and decorating costs,” Carroll wrote. “I did as I was told, submissive and desperate.”

While Poitier eventually split from his first wife Juanita Hardy in 1965, he reportedly told Carroll that he was not ready for another marriage, which led her to date other men.

“Sidney called me at my hotel … ‘You b****h, whore, tramp,’ he yelled. ‘I know he just left your bed. I won’t have you running around with other men. You belong to me!’” Carroll continued.

Despite a rocky past, the two were able to mend their relationship and go on to become friends and appear together at multiple events over the years.

“Sidney and I are now friends. That’s a lovely thing that comes as you age — forgiveness and perhaps a relaxing of standards,” Carroll wrote.

Poitier went on to marry his second wife Joanna Shimkus in 1976, whom he was married to up until his death, while Carroll went on to marry Fred Glusman, Robert DeLeon, and Vic Damone.

Following her fourth divorce in 1996, Carroll never remarried.

Despite being married four times, Carroll only had one child, a daughter, Suzanne Kay, whom she welcomed with her first husband.

Born September 9, 1960, Kay, 61, is known today as an American documentary producer and writer.

After graduating with a Master’s Degree in Journalism from Columbia University, Kay went on to work with PBS NewsHour, CNN, and Essence Magazine.

She now works as a producer and writer for Kaymont Entertainment, according to her LinkedIn profile.

From 1996 to 2016, Kay was married to American film director and screenwriter Mark Bamford.

Prem stars face ban from playing if they don’t get Covid vaccine in new rules being laid out by Government

Sab, 08/01/2022 - 17:05

PREMIER LEAGUE stars could face missing matches if they refuse to take up the coronavirus vaccine under new rules being laid out by the Government.

Under current regulations, un-jabbed ‘elite sportspersons’ who return to the UK from abroad are exempt from the ten-day isolation period.

The Mega AgencyCulture Secretary, Nadine Dorries, is pushing to scrap un-jabbed elite sportspersons’ exemption from isolating for ten days on their return to the UK[/caption]

But that could change after Culture Secretary, Nadine Dorries, pushed to scrap that right, according to reports.

That would mean top-flight footballers – as well as other sporting stars – would have to follow the same rules as members of the public, with no exceptions.

Any unvaccinated Premier League star returning from abroad – from an away game in Europe or international break, for example – would then be ruled out for ten days.

That could mean the players in question miss a number of matches.

With games coming thick and fast – and with a number of teams blighted by Covid and injuries – squads could be put even more strain.

Speaking about the potential change to the rules, a Government source told The Telegraph: “If you want to have special treatment you’ve got to do your bit to keep others healthy and safe.

“Getting vaccinated isn’t only about your health but others.”

Premier League chiefs are reportedly ready to push back should the new rules be enforced.

Top-flight officials believe the players in question would pose very little health risk due to the strict testing rules currently in place.

Current rules demand the general public isolate for ten days on arrival back in the UK and undertake a PCR test on days two and eight.

While elite sportspersons are expected to abide by the same rules they are currently allowed to break their isolation for the purposes of training or playing.

The current figures show a staggering 16 per cent of Prem players are yet to accept a single dose of the vaccine.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson will have final say regarding the new rules.

Johnson has currently shared his frustration at unvaccinated members of the public, calling it ‘absolutely crazy’ that so many people have refused the jab and ended up seriously ill in hospital.

The news comes as world tennis No1 Novak Djokovic was denied entry into Australia due to his vaccination status.

The Serbian star, a nine-time winner Down Under, was given his marching orders following a six hour stand-off at Melbourne Airport.

Djokovic had been granted an exemption to play at the Australian Open despite his vaccination record.

But Aussie Prime Minister Scott Morrison claimed: “Mr Djokovic’s visa has been cancelled.

“Rules are rules, especially when it comes to our borders.

“No one is above these rules.”

Fuming Lou Macari tells Man Utd to AXE ‘any players kicking off in the dressing room’ in stunning rant on MUTV

Sab, 08/01/2022 - 17:05

MANCHESTER UNITED icon Lou Macari has blasted his old club’s current crop in a stunning rant on their own TV channel.

The Scot didn’t hold back as he used MUTV to fume at Ralf Rangnick’s flops.

RexMan United have underperformed this season[/caption] PALou Macari is frustrated with his former side[/caption]

The Red Devils lost ground on their top four rivals with a 1-0 defeat to Wolves at Old Trafford on Monday, amid reports of dressing room unrest.

And Macari, 72, – who played more than 400 times for the club in the 1970s and 80s – has had enough.

He said: “Anyone kicking off in the dressing room, kick them out of the club.

“Get rid of them and I’m talking about the players doing that by the way.

“Seventy thousand United supporters can’t be wrong every week.

“These players have to start showing something.”

Macari then added: “You’ve got the money and the lifestyle, what more do you want?

“I’m getting annoyed. I should be watching 11 happy players enjoying the game but I’m not detecting that.

“I don’t see 11 happy players and they are second to most balls. Where’s the aggression gone?”

SunSport revealed that interim boss Rangnick is battling dressing room unrest at United.

A number of stars feel certain senior team-mates have too much sway with interim boss Rangnick on big decisions.

Now a division is opening up at Old Trafford — with a belief that some players are being favoured despite their poor form.

The Red Devils are seventh in the Premier League – four points behind fourth-placed Arsenal with a game in hand.

They take on Atletico Madrid in the Champions League round of 16 next month.

We are scared our family of 13 will be torn apart as the council plans on kicking us out of our 8-bedroom home

Sab, 08/01/2022 - 17:03

A FAMILY-of-13 claim they face being split up after the coucil kicked them out of their home.

Clifford Westfall, Clair Patterson, their nine children and Clifford and Claire’s siblings, have been told they must vacate their eight-bedroom house by January 26.

MEN MediaThe family fear being split up[/caption]

They were slapped with the eviction notice by Bradford Council after a purchase notice was placed on the property in Keighley, West Yorks, when an extension by the landlord meant the home was too tall, and exceeded agreed planning dimensions.

The couple, who pay £1,000 per month in rent on the property, now fear their big family could be torn apart and forced to live in separate homes.

Clifford, 37, also claims it was suggested his brood could be moved into a hostel.

The dad told Yorkshire Live: “There is nothing on the market for a family of our size.

“We’re not trying to be money-grabbers.

“We’re completely willing to pay our way. We pay £1,000 a month in rent. We pay £378 a month council tax, we pay all the bills on our house.

“We don’t want a big house and for it to be cheap. We will pay. We just want to be together.”

And Clair said the family are desperate to stay in the area because it’s where all their children, the youngest aged just two and the oldest 19-years-old, go to school.

She said: “If we lived elsewhere, it would be physically impossible for me to get seven kids to four different schools and then get to work. It just wouldn’t happen.”

The couple – who have one child together, and custody for their eight children from previous relationships – have urged the council to reconsider, push back the deadline or even knock through two properties to make space for them to live together.

They even said they would be happy to move into a smaller, five or four-bedroom home, but aren’t allowed as it would be overcrowded.

Local councillor Mohsin Hussain has joined the couple’s fight, urging the council to push back the deadline until a suitable home for all of them can be found.

He said: “It is very difficult to find another property of this size, but I have said to the council that we need to find another property for Clifford and his family to move into – or to extend the deadline.

“The council is not in the wrong on this, but there needs to be support from the council and from the housing associations for Clifford and his family.”

But the family are at a loss to find anywhere else to live and spent Christmas with their eviction looming.

A council spokesperson said bosses were even looking into “providing two accommodation units adjacent or in close proximity to each other”.

And Clifford claims it was even suggested his family could be moved into a hostel.

SPLIT FEAR

He said: “If we had to leave Keighley we’d do it. But a hostel? It just can’t happen. It wouldn’t work.”

A spokesperson for Bradford Council said: “With regard to rehousing Mr Westfall and his family, Mr Westfall and his family have been assessed by the Local Authority’s Housing Options Service in accordance with the Homelessness Reduction Act 2017.

“The Housing Options Officer is currently exploring suitable rehousing options in the private and social housing sectors. This also includes providing two accommodation units adjacent or in close proximity to each other.

“Should Mr Westfall become homeless before the eviction deadline, the Local Authority will have a statutory duty to offer temporary accommodation with one of our commissioned providers.

“The temporary accommodation offer, if needed, will be in the same location. The Local Authority will continue to support Mr Westfall and his family during this rehousing process.

“The council is currently in the process of preparing legal documentation to extend the current deadline of January 26, 2022 to allow additional time to source suitable housing options for Mr Westfall and his family. He will be in receipt of this documentation within the next seven days.”

Clair and Clifford also claimed they pay their rent to Jigsaw Property Services, but a spokesperson for the company told Yorkshire Live they didn’t let the property out anymore.

Ex-Man Utd striker Will Keane opens up on Charlie Wyke’s ‘horrendous’ cardiac arrest in Wigan training

Sab, 08/01/2022 - 17:02

EX-MANCHESTER UNITED striker Will Keane says Wigan ace Charlie Wyke’s training ground cardiac arrest ‘still lives’ with their team-mates.

Wyke was rushed to hospital last November after collapsing during training.

Keane opened up about the ‘horrendous’ day when team-mate Wyke had a cardiac arrest INSTAGRAM: CHARLIEWYKEThe incident has ruled Wyke out for the rest of the season[/caption]

And striker Keane says that ‘horrendous’ day ‘still lives’ with his Wigan team-mates and staff.

Speaking to the Telegraph, Keane recalled: “It still probably lives with a lot of the lads. It was horrendous.

“The way gaffer responded was incredible. Charlie’s just started to come in a little bit again now and it’s great to see him back.

“I’m just wishing him a full, speedy recovery.”

Boss Leam Richardson – who was given a special mention by Keane – reacted quickly to Wyke collapsing, performing life saving CPR.

Wyke thanked Richardson for his quick thinking once he was in a stable condition.

The forward said: “I feel it’s important to tell my story to our supporters and to the wider public, because my life has been saved by the actions of the gaffer [Richardson] and the club doctor Jonathan Tobin, and my story may well save another life.

“As you are aware, I collapsed during training on Monday.

“I suffered a cardiac arrest and required CPR, and I am told it was only the quick response of the gaffer to initiate the resuscitation process and then the continuation from the Doc that saved my life.

“I will be forever grateful that due to their actions – and those of my team-mates and other staff – I am here to talk to about the experience.”

Wyke went on to reveal that staff received CPR training just weeks before he collapsed.

Wigan will unfortunately have to make do without Wyke for the remainder of the season.

On getting in new faces to fill his missing men, boss Richardson confirmed: “Fingers crossed we can make some inroads, because we’re very aware we need to add depth, especially with losing Charlie [Wyke] and Jordan [Cousins] for the season.”

Paul Pogba will return to Man Utd training next week after getting green light from club doctors in huge injury boost

Sab, 08/01/2022 - 17:00

PAUL POGBA will return to full training in the coming week after getting the green light from the Manchester United doctors.

Pogba has not pulled on a red shirt for two months after damaging a thigh on international duty with France.

PAPaul Pogba is set to provide Man Utd with a huge boost in the coming week[/caption] GettyThe French star is set to return to training after getting the green light from medics[/caption]

It has been a difficult rehab for the Frenchman, who spent some time in Dubai in a bid to get back to action before the end of January. 

Now there is light at the end of the tunnel after he did some light running with his conditioners at Carrington last week.

The news is a huge injury boost to boss Ralf Rangnick who feared he would be without the midfielder for another few weeks.

United’s medical staff are poised to let him rejoin the main group later this week. 

Pogba, 28, has impressed Rangnick with his attitude and it is understood the midfielder has targeted a first team return by the end of January.

He is in the final six months of his deal at United and can speak to interested clubs on the continent about a free transfer in the summer.

Yet insiders insist that has not stopped Pogba from getting his head down and focusing on returning to help United’s push for a top four finish. 

Rangnick was still insisting that it will be a while before the World Cup winner is fully back in the swing of things ahead of Monday’s FA Cup tie with Villa.

He said: “I was told a week ago, it would be a minimum of at least another four or five weeks before he is fit for training again.

“I saw him this morning before the training session, he was in the locker room, and I hope he will be back as soon as possible.

“It’s one thing to be training fit but, on the other hand, he needs to be fit for the match and competition in either the Premier League or the Champions League and this will still take some time.”

Joss Stone was crowned the winner last year after she successfully kept her identity hidden in a Sausage costume.

The Masked Singer returned to TV on January 1, 2022 at 7pm on ITV and ITV Hub.

It is then on every Saturday at the same time until the show reveals its winner.

The series will again invite viewers and the judges try to guess the famous faces behind the 12 unusual costumes.

Twelve celebrities in costumes will sing anonymously.

In each episode, contestants will perform a song of their choice in their real voice.

After each performance, judges will give their feedback and try their best to guess who is behind the mask.

The singers with the least votes will then be up for elimination.

Prior to the performances and sometimes within them, hints given to who the singing celebrity is.

The eliminated contestant will then have to remove their mask which is when the judges and viewers will find out who they are.

The unique format for the show came from South Korea and was called The King of Mask Singer in 2015.

Lauren and her husband Josiah disappeared from social media with their most recent post shared on their engagement anniversary back in February 2020.

Without the social media updates, fans are left to family affairs and photos to get updates from the couple.

From Lauren and Josiah resurfacing in a family photo in September 2021 to a YouTube video released of Jed and Katey’s gender reveal party, fans noticed a significant difference in Lauren’s figure.

One posted: “Totally looks like a bump.”

Another agreed: “Pretty dramatic change compared to photos of her a couple months ago, so definitely could be.”

A third commented: “You can see the outline of her belly and she looks pregnant. The lose-fitting sweater cannot be blamed.”

Although a fourth took to defending Lauren: “No way am I going to speculate on this girl’s fertility. That miscarriage a few years ago obviously traumatized her. Plus, she’s not even on social media anymore.”

IT’S A…

Jed Duggar and his wife Katey Nakatsu revealed the gender of their first child in the sweet family YouTube video after Josh Duggar’s child pornography arrest.

Jed and Katey announced they were expecting their first child together in September – a few months after they tied the knot.

Joe Duggar, John Duggar, Abbie Burnett, Jana Duggar and other members of the famous family were present.

During the party, the family chowed down on themed snacks, choosing sides before gathering to find out the gender once and for all.

After learning the baby was a boy, someone could be heard shouting: “I knew it!” as Jed and Katey kissed.

The gender reveal comes after Jed was accused of trying to “distract” from Josh’s child pornography scandal.

OUT OF HIDING

Josiah and his wife Lauren resurfaced from their media disappearance back in September 2021 in a family group photo.

The couple, who got married in 2018 and share almost-2-year-old daughter Bella, popped up in some group shots from a family reunion over Labor Day weekend.

The Duggar Fam Instagram account shared quite a few snaps from their time enjoying a day out at Farmland Adventures, having fun in the sun, doing corn mazes, and eating good food.

In the caption, it read: “Quite a few of us made it out to @farmlandadventuresnwa for a great day of family fun! 

“It still feels like Summer outside, but the giant corn maze sure did get us in the mood for Fall! 

“The pumpkin patch, pony rides, farm animals, pig races, 9-acre maze, and play area all made for some happy, tired kids… and adults! 

The caption concluded: “Can’t wait to go back! #makingmemories #happylaborday”

Josiah’s parents, Jim Bob and Michelle, posed with a bunch of their kids, as well as grandkids and extended family members for a nice, scenic shot.

LEGAL WAR OVER?

Meanwhile, the Duggar sisters are “in talks to settle” a lawsuit with police over allegations involving their brother Josh.

Jessa, Jill, Jinger and Joy-Anna are chatting with authorities over a leaked police report claiming their disgraced brother molested minors in the family home.  

The order sets out what is expected from the day: “The purpose of the settlement conference is to precipitate settlement of this case, if that is appropriate.  

“It will be conducted in such a manner as to not prejudice any party in the event settlement is not reached that all matters communicated to the undersigned (judge)… will not be disclosed to the trial judge. The undersigned of course will not serve as trial judge in this case.” 

In 2015, a 33-page Arkansas police report was released to the public, claiming dad Jim Bob confessed to local authorities that his eldest son Josh fondled the breasts and genitals of young girls while they were asleep in the Duggar family home years prior. 

Josh’s younger sisters Jill, 30, and Jessa, 29, came forward as two of the alleged victims in an interview with Megyn Kelly, where they insisted they had forgiven Josh, who was never charged, for his wrongdoings

In May 2017, Jill and Jessa sued the City of Springdale, police department employees and other Defendants for invasion of privacy and more, claiming releasing the records caused “extreme mental anguish and emotional distress.”  

Sisters Jinger, 27, and Joy-Anna, 24, are also suing, though they have not publicly come forward as victims of the alleged molestation.  

One source close to the family told The Sun that Josh’s conviction on child pornography charges could impact the outcome in the sisters’ case. 

The source said: “They’ve been allowed to proceed on their case against the police department and a couple of police officers. 

“That was supposed to go to trial the same week as Josh’s trial, but it got reset. 

“If there is a trial, the damages could be cut as a consequence of Josh’s conviction.”  

DECLARED GUILTY 

On December 9, Josh was found guilty on child pornography charges, ending an explosive two-week trial.  

The eldest Duggar son was taken into custody immediately after the verdict came in, and is expected to remain in jail until his sentencing in 2022.  

The Sun obtained video showing Josh being led into a booking area by an officer.  

He was handcuffed with his hands behind his back.  

Josh was first arrested in April, more than a year after Homeland Security raided his Arkansas car dealership.  

He was charged with possessing and receiving child pornography.

I told Tinder date I had seven kids – and was speechless at his response, I’ve officially given up on men

Sab, 08/01/2022 - 16:51

A MUM was left horrified by her Tinder date’s response after she told him that she had seven kids.

TikTok user Katie revealed that she had been trying out the dating app for the first time, sharing her conversation with one man in particular.

Mum Katie was horrified when she received these brutal messages from her Tinder match Katie admitted she’d given up on the app

Things started off well when the bloke began by complimenting her ‘stunning eyes’, and ensued with the usual chit chat, telling her where he worked and the fact he had one son from a previous relationship.

He then went on to ask Katie about herself and she revealed that she worked as a waitress in Newcastle as it fits around her children.

She then wrote: “I’m a mum to 7 children and also a nan to 1, 5 kids still at home, got my own house and car… I’ve been single just over 2 years now just came on here to see what happens really.”

And it’s at this point where things take a turn as the bloke clearly doesn’t like what he’s read.

“What,” he responds, “7 f***ing kids, are you joking???

Most read in Fabulous 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 HOT MAMA I have 25-year-olds chatting me up - they have no idea how old I am, I'm so hot DOLL HOUSE I ordered a huge rug from Shein - but when it arrived all I could do was laugh

“No wonder you don’t mention that in your bio, no one would message you. F***ing sl** it’s women like you who give others a bad name.”

Horrified, Katie was quick to respond to his cruel comments to defend herself.

“Wow why the hate i do expect people won’t accept it but no need to be mean and talk down to me like that!! (sic),” she said.

She went on to explain that she doesn’t expect anyone to take her kids as they have their own dads on and kindly asks that he not contact her again.

But the Tinder match isn’t through yet, responding:: “Learn to respect others lmao you need to learn to respect yourself love!

“And DADS NOT DAD there’s another problem offering your h*** out to anyone who will take it you f***ing w****.”

He finishes his torade of abuse by making some very crude comments about Katie’s private parts.

Unsurprisingly, the experience had left Katie feeling rather despairing, admitting she’d ‘given up’ on the app.

The video has since gone viral receiving over 100,000 views and thousands of comments from Katie’s followers hoping to bolster her.

One wrote: “If that’s how he treats a stranger, I dread to think how he treats his exes.”

Agreeing, another added: “It takes one hell of a real woman to have seven kids, you are truly amazing and strong.”

“No one deserves to be spoken to like that, ignore the little boy,” a third wrote.
