It is yet to be revealed which celebrity is under the Lionfish.

Celebrity panellist judge, Jonathan Ross has remained closed-mouth when it comes to revealing any clues.

However, he did ensure that viewers will be in for a surprise when they find out who some of the celebrities are.

“There’s a couple of real surprises. One person who disguised their voice so much, because their voice is normally so distinctive, that we didn’t get it.”

He explained,  “There’s another person who is, shall we say, I think probably the oldest person we’ve had on the show so far and I managed to guess that person correctly.”

What is Ant McPartlin’s net worth, and how many children does the Britain’s Got Talent host have?

Sab, 08/01/2022 - 16:45

ANT McPartlin is half of the Geordie Duo Ant and Dec, known for their comedic presenting on ITV shows such as I’m a Celeb.

And hosting the new series of Limitless Win alongside long-time presenting partner Declan Donnelly. Here’s the latest on the national treasure…

Ant McPartlin is a British television presenterNews Group Newspapers Ltd

Who is Ant McPartlin and how tall is he?

Anthony David “Ant” McPartlin, OBE, first came to prominence on the kids’ TV show Byker Grove.

The Geordie, who was born on November 18, 1975, in Newcastle-upon-Tyne.

The English television presenter, producer and actor stands at 5 foot 8 inches tall.

He is known for his small stature along with best pal Declan Donnelly, who is 5ft 6 inches.

Ant and Dec are considered British television royalty Ant and Dec are considered British television royaltyPA:Press Association

Why did Ant McPartlin divorce from Lisa Armstrong and does he have any children?

Ant officially divorced from Lisa Armstrong on October 16 on the grounds of unreasonable behaviour – a decree nisi was granted in less than 30 seconds.

The Sun first revealed that Ant was divorcing from his wife of 11 years on January 14, 2018.

In a statement released to The Sun on Sunday, Ant’s spokesman said: “In response to the recent speculation in the media, Ant is very sad to announce that, after 11 years, he is ending his marriage to Lisa McPartlin.

“Ant asks for privacy at this difficult time, for both himself, Lisa and their immediate families. No further statement will be made.”

On November 5, Lisa was seen arriving at the Royal Courts of Justice to start legal arguments about getting a share of the TV presenter’s £62million fortune.

And it was then revealed that Ant could face a public divorce battle with his ex-wife after she rejected his settlement offer.

Ant doesn’t have any children.

Who is Anne-Marie Corbett?

After a tumultuous year, the Britain’s Got Talent star found love with his 44-year-old personal assistant, Anne-Marie Corbett.

Taking to Twitter, Lisa posted a series of broken heart Emojis, followed by a love heart.

Fans responded with messages of support to Armstrong, saying:  “Sending you love and hugs. Keep strong”

The couple’s relationship is going strong, having previously been pictured on a double date with pals Dec and his wife Ali Astall.

How did Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly meet?

Ant met Dec on the children’s television show Byker Grove when he joined in 1990. Dec was on the show from 1989.

They played PJ (Ant) and Duncan (Dec), sharing storylines and creating a friendship off-screen as well as on.

After leaving Byker Grove, they launched a pop career in 1994, known as PJ & Duncan – their characters on Byker Grove.

However, the duo’s music career didn’t last too long as their record label decided not to renew their contract in 1997 – but they had already rebranded as Ant and Dec.

Having become real-life best friends, their on-screen chemistry proved a winner and they moved into comedy presenting.

Ant and Dec shot to fame as PJ & DuncanTcc - the Children's Channel

What shows have Ant and Dec presented?

Ant and Dec have formed one of the most successful partnerships in TV, and are known as television royalty.

They have fronted a number of shows, but really hit the big time when they presented children’s Saturday morning show SMTV Live, which launched the career of Cat Deeley, as well as CD:UK, a music chart show.

They then moved away from kids’ TV and have had success with Saturday Night Takeaway and are also well known for fronting I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here and Britain’s Got Talent.

What is Ant McPartlin’s net worth?

Ant’s net worth is estimated to be around £62million.

His 2007 presenting deal with ITV was rumoured to be worth around £40million and a more recent deal is said to be approximately £30million – split between himself and Dec.

Ant and Dec are both property investors too – reportedly owning properties worth around £10million combined.

It is also believed that they are each insured against the other’s death, with the amount being around £1million.

Why did Ant go to rehab in 2017?

Ant spent his two-month stint in rehab in summer 2017 after enduring a two-year addiction to strong painkillers, which almost killed him.

In a world exclusive interview with The Sun on Sunday, the presenter revealed how he was rushed to hospital at 5am after an “insane” pills binge.

The emotional star said: “I was at the point where anything – prescription drugs, non-prescription drugs – I would take.

“And take them with alcohol, which is ridiculous. The doctors told me, ‘You could have killed yourself.’ ”

He has now praised the “brilliant” NHS doctor who saved him from the painkiller addiction in an exclusive interview with The Sun’s Bizarre Column.

The star’s descent into dangerous prescription drugs came after he damaged his knee in 2014, then had a botched operation on it the following year.

Covid could be like a common cold by SPRING as mild Omicron strain is found to be much less severe, expert says

Sab, 08/01/2022 - 16:36

EXPERTS believe that coronavirus could be as mild as the common cold within months – as cases begin to slow.

Dr Mike Tildesley claims that the world will soon be able to function normally again and will no longer be crippled by new variants of the killer virus.

APExperts hope that the country will be able to get back to normal soon[/caption]

The University of Warwick expert also feeds information into SAGE, and previously questioned the need for curbs.

He raised hopes that cases are starting to slow in Covid hot-spot London despite the UK reporting nearly 180,000 new cases on Friday.

The claims come after it was revealed that Omicron could be 99 per cent less deadly than other Covid variants as daily cases fall for a third day in a row

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.

Speaking to Times Radio, Dr Tildesley said: “The thing that might happen in the future is you may see the emergence of a new variant that is less severe, and ultimately, in the long term, what happens is Covid becomes endemic and you have a less severe version.

“It’s very similar to the common cold that we’ve lived with for many years.

“We’re not quite there yet but possibly Omicron is the first ray of light there that suggests that may happen in the longer term.

“It is, of course, much more transmissible than Delta was, which is concerning, but much less severe.

“Hopefully, as we move more towards the spring and we see the back of Omicron, we can get more inter-relationship of living with Covid as an endemic disease and protecting the vulnerable.”

But Dr Tildesley does believe that the North East and North West of England are seeing the most “concerning” rates of the Omicron variant.

He added: “It doesn’t sound all doom and gloom, what we are seeing from hospital admissions is that stays in hospital do appear to be on average shorter, which is good news, symptoms appear to be a little bit milder, so this what we are seeing consistently with the Omicron variant.”

On Friday, the UK reported 178,250 daily coronavirus cases and another 229 deaths.

Government figures show that there are 18,454 people in hospital with coronavirus as of the last count.

GET BOOSTED

But health secretary Sajid Javid says the NHS is facing a “rocky few weeks ahead” as it contends with a wave of Omicron cases.

He said: “The best thing people can do is get their booster jab.

“We know now that Omicron is less severe… and we certainly know that once you get boosted that your chance of hospitalisation, our latest analysis shows, is almost 90% less than it was with Delta.”

His comments come after ministers have found themselves under mounting pressure to cut the self-isolation period because of the devastating knock on effect it is having on the health service 

Before Christmas, Health Secretary Sajid Javid cut the number of isolation days from 10 to seven – provided people test negative on days six and seven.

Workers across the country have been stuck at home for a week due to the isolation measures, but experts are calling for it to be slashed again to help release pressure.

Half of the schools in England have already turned to supply teachers to get the cover they need because of staff absences.

Roma haven’t, however, included an option to buy in the deal.

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta explained on Friday that the 24-year-old wanted to leave the club in the January transfer window, and expressed that the opportunity to work under Mourinho would benefit his career.

The Spaniard said: “Ainsley came to me and explained the reasons why he thought that the best thing for him in his career right now is to move away.

“He believes that the opportunity to move to Rome and working under Jose is a really good one.

“We already had this conversation in the summer and we decided to keep him at the club and assess the situation in December, but with the amount of minutes that he has played, he’s entitled to that opportunity.

“When a player feels that way and has a strong argument like he has, it’s very difficult to turn it away, so we decided to let him go and we wish him all the best.”

Landlord BANNED from renting out homes after ‘shocking’ state of property housing 18 people including six kids revealed

Sab, 08/01/2022 - 16:31

A LANDLORD has been banned from renting out homes after the “shocking” state of one property revealed 18 people, including six kids, had been living in it.

Adam Habane will be barred from letting or managing properties for the next five years after an investigation by Bristol City Council unearthed the horrid conditions tenants has been living in.

Bristol City CouncilUp to 18 people – including six kids – were believed to be living in one property[/caption] Bristol City CouncilBristol City Council has issued an order making it illegal to live in the property[/caption]

Up to 18 people, including six kids, were thought to be living in a run-down property run by Mr Habane on Lower Ashley Road in Bristol, the council said.

The council said the heartless landlord had a “long history of poor property management” and found him guilty in March 2021 of mismanaging seven flats at the same address.

The conditions at the delipidated property were so bad that Bristol City Council issued an order making it illegal for anyone to live there in the state it was in.

Photos from the property showed the sickening conditions tenants lived in with rooms and hallways filled with black mould and a large hole with insulation hanging out in the bathroom ceiling.

The council’s private housing team – which launched a case in March last year after visiting – found the property had been converted into a house in multiple occupation (HMO).

A statement by the council said: “The property was discovered to be in very poor repair and poorly managed, with particular concerns for the safety of the occupants due to the absence of operating fire alarm systems.

“The concern was so great that, as a precautionary measure, the council provided battery operated smoke detectors to the property that day, to protect the tenants while decisions were made of the future of the property.

“Other safety issues remained, and the council later made Prohibition Orders on the flats in the main building of the property to make it illegal for anyone to live there, due to the very poor and unsafe living conditions.”

Mr Habane has been prohibited from letting houses or carrying out letting agency or property management work in England as well as acting as an officer of any company that works in the area.

His name will also be added to the Government’s Rougle Landlord database.

The statement continued: “The council took the decision to apply for a banning order following this case because of the seriousness of those offences and the potential harm to tenants.

“It is also hoped it will deter other rogue landlords and agents from operating in a criminal way.”

Bristol City Council councillor and cabinet member for housing Tom Renhard said rogue landlords and agents “have no place in Bristol”.

He said: “The council will use all its powers available to stop these criminals from operating in Bristol and the rest of the country.

“This was a particularly shocking case, where the landlord showed a blatant disregard for the safety of his tenants.

“That is why we took the decision to apply for a banning order following the successful conviction earlier this year.”

The council said Mr Habane has so far refused to confirm if he’s involved in the letting or management of any other rental properties.

Anyone who believes they’re involved in a property under Mr Habane’s management is being urged to contact the council on private.housing@bristol.gov.uk .

Amber alert mystery as missing RayRay Powell, 1, ‘anonymously returned’ to mom after SUV stolen in Minneapolis

Sab, 08/01/2022 - 16:31

MYSTERY surrounds what happened to a missing one-year-old boy who was in a stolen SUV but he was later “anonymously returned” to his mom.

RayRay Powell was returned to his mom around two hours after an amber alert was issued Friday to the south Minneapolis area, according to the Brooklyn Park Police Department.

The toddler went missing while outside temperatures were in the low single figures, sparking fears about his safety among those searching for him.

Cops responded to a hang-up call around 6.30pm, according to a statement, and found the youngster in a home on the 6500 block of 84th Court North.

The boy was found safe and unharmed with is mom.

“That’s what we were looking for and praying for, that the kid was found safe and unharmed,” said Muhammad Abdul-Ahad, who was searching for the child in Minneapolis as part of a violence intervention team.

Before the boy had been found, cops in Minneapolis found the stolen vehicle in which the boy had been taken.

The unoccupied white Buick Enclave with Minnesota license plate HTH 234 was found by officers near the 3700 block of Lake Street East, around a mile from where the vehicle had been stolen.

Someone took the vehicle at around 3.30pm, near the intersection of Bloomington Avenue and Lake Street, according to investigators.

The boy’s mom had told police she had momentarily left the car running while her son was inside.

Officials issued an amber alert for the child around two hours after the theft but was canceled at about 7.40pm, an hours after the child was found.

Cops are still hunting the person who stole the car.

“For the young kids out there, just stop and think,” Abdul-Ahad said, referencing the spate of car thefts in the Twin Cities, some of which have involved children. “It doesn’t hurt to think. Make smart decisions, not dumb ones.”

Another child, 3, was taken in a car theft Thursday in Minneapolis, a day before Powell went missing.

Investigators in that case said a 45-year-old man had stolen a car which had been left running outside a Speedway gas station.

The child was found unharmed just minutes after the theft and no amber alert was issued.

The suspect faces charges of auto theft and kidnapping.

I hang from my hair as a circus act & people always ask how I’m not bald – this is the haircare routine I swear by

Sab, 08/01/2022 - 16:28

AN INCREDIBLE circus performer has revealed how she is able to hang from her hair without it falling out and her routine for taking care of it.

Sylphie Ariella, from San Fransisco, has been training in the circus arts since the age of 10, where she joined the San Francisco Circus Center.

tiktok @sylphieariellaSylphie Ariella specialises in aerial contortion[/caption] tiktok @sylphieariellaShe says there are very few teachers of hair hanging in the world[/caption]

Sylphia, who is now based in Berlin, specialises in aerial contortion, but there is one skill set she has that people cannot stop talking about on her TikTok account, which is hair hanging.

Hair hanging is when performers are suspended in the air by their hair whilst performing acrobatic poses and manipulation.

She has been performing professionally for 15 years and began to train in the art of hair hanging at Sala Charivari in Madrid five years ago, where she fell in love with the discipline.

Users on TikTok were blown away by Sylphia’s routines but people often ask her how she has not gone bald from doing it and whether it hurts.

Sylphia explained that hair hanging feels like thousands of bees are stinging your scalp, but that some days the pain is worse than others.

People are constantly asking Sylphia to share her hair routine to keep her hair strong and healthy, which she demonstrated in a video for her followers.

She first gives herself a scalp massage using a hair oil and flips her head upside down whilst doing it to stimulate blood flow to her scalp.

Sylphia then uses the Garnier hair food conditioning mask on her entire head and leaves it in for an hour.

She uses Jean and Len’s long hair shampoo and conditioner to wash her hair, the final step is to use their leave-in conditioner spray.

Sylphia also said she does not use heat or hair dye on her hair to prevent breakage and washes her hair once a week.

Whilst the act can cause pain, she said the more she practices the less painful it does become for her scalp.

Sylphia said many people tell her she will go bald, a receding hairline, or get traction alopecia from performing hair hanging and explained to users a similar thing happens just by wearing a ponytail.

She explained that because her hair is sat directly on top of her head when hair hanging it doesn’t pull the front of the scalp so she won’t get a receding hairline as the weight is distributed evenly.

She said that on top of that, she only does hair hanging for a maximum of ten minutes a day and that she keeps her hair loose at all other times to make sure her scalp and hair have a rest.

You’ve been spreading your butter all wrong, this is the correct way to do it

Sab, 08/01/2022 - 16:24

WHO DOESN’T love proper butter on a fresh piece of toast?

While the fake stuff may spread easily if you do keep real butter in the fridge when you go to spread it, it can feel like drawing blood from a stone.

Tik Tok/ pierre.le.chePierre shared how to cut the perfect slice of butter with minimal effort[/caption]

While you may find stabbing at it with a knife for a few minutes may do the trick, by the time you’ve actually got a knob of butter on your knife, your toast has already gone cold and the butter just will not spread properly.

You may as well give up and reach for the Nutella at that point.

But luckily, one TikTok user has revealed a very simple solution to slicing your butter, and you definitely already have the utensil in your kitchen drawer.

Pierre, a chef based in London, shared the video to his TikTok account, pierre.le.chef, where it has been viewed over one million times.

Pierre wrote: “I bet you didn’t know this hack.”

Pierre takes his butter and uses a vegetable skin peeler to peel a small slice of butter and adds it on top of his toast.

Using the peeler means you can get a thinner slice of butter, which will help the butter actually melt on top of the toast.

Users of the app were torn as to whether they were impressed by the hack, some said he could have just used a knife.

“Why not just put the butter in a butter dish and leave it next to the bread bin.” Commented one user.

Another added: “It would take longer for me to find it than it would just to use a butter knife.”

Whilst others were impressed by Pierre’s hack, one wrote: “Good idea when the butter is too hard!”

“It is so obvious but I was clueless until now!! Mind blown.” Replied another user.

My rich ex ‘auditioned’ me to be his girlfriend by testing if I cared about his money – he made me pay £365 for dinner

Sab, 08/01/2022 - 16:24

CHOOSING your Mr or Mrs right may lead you to ticking off a list of what they must and must not have. 

But when should you ease up on some requests and how do you know if you are taking it too far?

A Reddit user explained her shock after discovering her brother ‘tested’ his former girlfriend

Well, one woman who was left in a similar situation ended up leaving her boyfriend after he put her through a series of “tests” to see if she’s with him for the money. 

One Reddit user @shwnwneneb2929 decided to share the situation she partially got involved in after finding out that her brother, 27, and his girlfriend of six months had broken up.

She explained that her brother started dating a woman, after discovering similar interests but said the pair surprisingly split up despite not having any arguments. 

The Reddit user then went on to say that the girlfriend had explained to her that she was tired of her boyfriend constantly testing him as he couldn’t go off the idea that she was only with him for his money.

The post talks about the different tasks he would set for her. 

It read: “1. Leaving out his bank statements on their bed and getting upset when she picked it up.

“3. Never buying her gifts and questioning her when she asks why he doesn’t.”

The Reddit user then goes on to say: “I was shocked so I had to hear my brothers perspective. 

“We spoke and he told me everything she said was true and that there’s nothing wrong with making sure his girlfriend is with him for the right reasons.” 

She said her brother confirmed that he had left his bank statements on the bed and was “peeking through the door to see if she would be curious”.

The Reddit user continued: “So he set up the restaurant idea to see if she would get upset at paying a $500 bill which she was.

“I asked him if he thinks her being an elementary school teacher would have contributed to her being upset at a $500 bill at a restaurant he wanted to go to and he said no.”

He then goes onto explain to his sister that the “straw that broke” was her asking why he hasn’t bought her any presents. 

The Reddit use said: “He confronted her and said he thinks she’s with him for his money so she said let me do us both a favour and dumped him and blocked him. He’s upset about the ‘gold digging b***h’ and when I laughed he called me an a**hole.

“He said I would never understand what it’s like being a rich man.” 

And people couldn’t believe her story with one writing: “Only a**hole here is the brother.” 

Another added: “It kinda sounds like He’s a gold digger tbh.”

Sunderland’s Corry Evans stretchered off after horror collision in draw with Wycombe as Sky Sports refuse to show replay

Sab, 08/01/2022 - 16:15

SUNDERLAND star Corry Evans was stretchered off against Wycombe following a horror head collision.

The Northern Ireland midfield crashed into a teammate in Saturday’s thrilling League One clash, which ended 3-3.

And after receiving lengthy medical treatment on the field, including oxygen, Black Cats skipper Evans was carried off for further examinations.

The incident left TV viewers shocked, with those inside the stadium visibly concerned.

And Sky Sports, who were televising the game live, refused to show replays of Evans’ injury.

Evans, 31, is the younger brother of Leicester star Jonny, and only joined Sunderland on a free transfer from Blackburn in July.

But speaking after the game, Sunderland boss Lee Johnson provided a positive update on his star man.

Johnson declared: “Yeah, he’s good. The report is back but I haven’t seen it myself yet.

“I think he was knocked out for short period of time but luckily no neck break or anything like that, which I was fearful of.

“It’ll be concussion protocol and he’ll be back but it was a brave challenge and that’s what you expect from your captain.”

As for the game itself, Sunderland took a quick lead thanks to a David Stockdale own-goal in the third minute.

But Wycombe fired back through Anis Mehmeti 10 minutes later before Sam Vokes fired them ahead in the 36th minute.

However, Ross Stewart found an equaliser for Sunderland just moments later to level the scores at half-time.

Stewart then thought he’d netted a winner for the Black Cats when he hit the target in the third minute of added time.

But Wycombe’s Joe Jacobson made it 3-3 with the last kick of the game in the 98th minute.

The result leaves Sunderland joint-top of League One with Rotherham, albeit having played a game extra.

Meanwhile, Wycombe are four points off the Black Cats in third place but are just one point ahead of Wigan, who have a mammoth four games in hand.

A Place In The Sun’s Laura Hamilton reveals shock split from husband Alex after 13 years together

Sab, 08/01/2022 - 16:12

A PLACE In The Sun’s Laura Hamilton has revealed she’s split up from her husband after 13 years together.

The TV presenter released the surprising statement on Instagram to fans announcing she had separated from her long-term partner Alex Goward.

InstagramLaura Hamilton and Alex Goward have separated after 13 years together[/caption] Laura announced the sad news today

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.

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.

The day before revealing her marriage breakdown, Laura told fans she was leaving the family home they had shared for nine years.

She 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 and admitted “change can be scary” as she closed the chapter.

“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.”

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

But they’re also business partners, running a café called Lord Roberts on The Green together.

They had a fairytale wedding in Surrey surrounded by their celebrity pals including, Amanda Lamb, Michelle Heaton and Jeff Brazier, as well as Jayne Torvill and Sam Attwater, Denise Welch and Elen Rivas.

Their nuptials were heavily themed around several of their favourite movies.

Laura walked down the aisle to Ice Dance from the film Edward Scissorhands, while at the reception, the newlyweds entered the room to the theme tune from Rocky.

As the night went on at the reception, Laura serenaded her new husband with a rendition of Whitney Houston’s Saving All My Love For You.

Previously reflecting on her big day, Laura said: “The day was perfect in every way. Even better than I imagined it would be. I feel more complete now.”

Husband Alex echoed his wife’s sentiments, explaining: “The wedding was unbelievable, the most memorable day of our lives. It just cements our love for one another.”

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.

Despite a hugely successful TV career, Laura recently admitted being subjected to online negativity during lockdown.

It came after the couple used their Purley-based restaurant put all their efforts into supplying essentials as well as offering a takeaway and delivery service during lockdown.

She told The Sun’s Fabulous podcast it brought up bad memories of being bullied at school.

Laura said: “It really upset me in lockdown, when me and my family got attacked over our coffee shop.

“I was trying to do good by the community and then people put a load of abusive stuff on a Next Door app online.

“I read it and I ended up having a panic attack, which has never happened in my life and I didn’t know what was happening.

“It was because I was letting this negative stuff get to me. That’s the only other time I think it’s affected me.

“And I vowed after that, I would never let anything get to me again.

“It’s never acceptable when people are negative about anyone online.

“If it’s work and it’s presenting – not everyone will like your style. They might prefer another presenter over you and I think ‘ok, well you don’t need to say it, it’s better to keep it to yourself’.

“I read these things online about myself and my family and I think because it was personal about our family, that’s why I was like ‘oh my god’, is this really what people are saying and what people think.”

Thrifty couple transform dated caravan into dream home for just £1.6k – and they did it all with free online tutorials

Sab, 08/01/2022 - 16:11

IF YOU have always dreamt of a gorgeous caravan to take your holidays in but didn’t want to splash out on a brand new one, this incredible renovation will make you want to transform an old one yourself.

Bianca Bertalli, 37 and Bert Bertalli, 47, from New South Wales, Australia, bought an old caravan in need of overhauling, and turned it into a chic, stylish, Pinterest-ready space with a lot of hard work and love.

Latest DealsBianca and her husband Bert made the decision to transform an old caravan[/caption]

The couple, who have three kids aged two, four and 12, learnt what to do through online tutorials, and did everything from painting to reupholstering themselves.

They spent £1,590 in the process, transforming the dated caravan into their dream home. 

Bianca, who works as a primary teacher, told LatestDeals: “The idea to buy a caravan was quite spontaneous. 

“We have had several family camping trips in a camper trailer which requires days of planning to make sure everything is packed properly and a decent amount of set up once we arrive at our chosen spot.

“I found we were endlessly opening and closing boxes trying to look for items or shift boxes around to make space for the kids to sleep comfortably. 

“I was growing tired of having to deal with zips and flaps and bugs and the weather impacting on our down time too.

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

“I saw a renovated caravan pop up on Facebook Marketplace and I could instantly see how our family could benefit from having a set up that was ready to go.

“The light, bright interior would make us feel instantly on holiday and it could double as a place for family to stay if they visited us.

“While away for a long weekend camping, I first pitched the idea to my hubby on the Thursday.

“I showed him the ad on Facebook and he instantly said ‘we are NOT buying a caravan – I am not a caravan kind of guy’.

“Unfortunately the renovated van was snapped up within 24 hours but over the course of the weekend I’d managed to convince him and on Sunday we were going to look at the old Millard van we have named Daisy Duke.

“When we went to look at Daisy Duke we knew nothing about caravans. We called some family members for their advice and things to look out for.

Latest DealsIt wasn’t an easy job and there was a lot to do, but the couple used online tutorials for the renovations[/caption]

“It had a dual axle and electric brakes which was important for safety and it had new air conditioning, a decent fridge, a tv and a roll out awning. These were all things we would need to add to a vintage van.

“So while the original van cost us quite a bit, those additions made it a reasonable price. 

“We also weren’t prepared to buy a full gut and rebuild van.”

Bianca revealed that although the caravan was in excellent condition for it’s age, her and her husband wanted to give it some TLC and did this by watching online tutorials. 

She added: “It was in excellent condition for her age and part of me felt guilty for pulling out the wild orange and brown vintage decor. 

“We checked for water damage (we did find a bit more once we got her home unfortunately) and the condition of the cupboards, fixtures and electrical.

Latest DealsThe caravan was quite dated and needed some TLC[/caption]

“We determined that our project would be mostly cosmetic with some straightforward additions so we thought we would be able to tackle it.

“We have renovated a house but we knew nothing about caravans – thank goodness for Google and online tutorials! 

“Given that it wasn’t a complete rebuild we managed to complete most of our project in six weeks.

“It was almost a Christmas miracle given that I am a teacher and it was report season and my hubby is a teacher union official in full campaign mode for improvements to teachers pay and conditions.

“We also have three kids who keep us on our toes.

“As a former Design and Technology teacher, Bert is very handy and did all of the construction while I was on planning, painting and styling. We made a good team!

Latest DealsThe couple wanted to add a more modern feel to the caravan[/caption] Latest DealsAnd we are seriously jealous of the gorgeous kitchen[/caption]

“We had my brother in law assist with electrical as he has experience with building his own camper truck. After checking for asbestos, we took out the lounges and cupboard doors being careful to try and save what we could.

“We did have to replace some water damaged panels with 3mm triple A grade ply from a hardware store. You can buy actual caravan panelling if you like.

“We primed and painted, added the VJ panel arch to create a distinct parent zone and then built the bunks.

“The lounge surprised me. I had gotten quotes of £265 and up to reupholster the original council but Bert convinced me to give it a go ourselves.

“He has poured his heart and soul into making my dreams come true and despite his initial reservations he loves the van now.”

Bianca added that they used recycled materials were possible for the transformation.

Latest DealsThe bedroom was looking a bit tired and needed sprucing up[/caption] Latest DealsThe bedroom now has a gorgeous dressing table perfect for getting ready at[/caption]

She continued: “We tried to recycle what we could. We reused the lounge and reupholstered it in a stretchy couch cover from ebay and sewed in the original brass buttons. It was able to be reshaped from an L shape lounge to a curved lounge which I think looks so good.

“It actually fits two adults and two small kids quite comfortably. With an added base box it can sleep our 13 year old.

“The cupboards are all original, just painted, as are the fixtures. 

“The bunks were an old set of wooden bunks that my hubby cut to a custom length and we added the VJ panelling. The mattresses are a double mattress from Fantastic Furniture that we cut to size.

“We used four in one primer from British Paints and an aqua enamel on the walls called ‘Dreamy White’, also from British Paints.

“It is a great colour because it has a hint of warmth and suits both beige and grey accents as well as pinks, greens and other earthy tones, which I love.

“Regarding weight, whatever you put in should be about the same as what you’re taking out. Bert actually stole my bathroom scales to weigh everything as he took things out and put new things in.

“For safety, Google videos on weight distribution and how this affects your towing. Try to keep your weight at the front.

“Don’t forget to factor into the budget a fire extinguisher, first aid kit and any tools you might need for the road. Check for asbestos before you start demolition.”

If you are inspired and want to undertake a similar transformation, Bianca shares her top tips.

She advised: “For inspiration, follow other van reno accounts on social media. I’d like to say that all of our ideas are original but most of them are not. Daisy is an amalgamation of many ideas we have looked at and tried to recreate in our own way.

“Don’t be afraid to reach out to other fellow van renovators with questions on how to tackle something. Learn from others and share with others.”

Latest DealsThe colour scheme of the caravan didn’t really fit with the couple’s taste[/caption] Latest DealsIt is now extremely modern and is the couple’s dream home[/caption]

Bianca is thrilled with the finished look of their caravan, and the cherry on top of the cake is how much money they saved doing it themselves.

She said: “It is such a beautiful space to be in.

“It’s light, bright, airy and spacious. We can sleep five of us in comfort.

“Having Daisy Duke means that we can get away whenever we want or need. It also gives me a space to work away from the madness of the house. I like taking my laptop in there and working in the space.

“I love the romantic parent zone with the flickering LED candles from Kmart – it’s just a nice little haven that feels so cosy and like you could be anywhere in the world.

“It honestly feels nicer than some of the hotel rooms I’ve stayed in!

“I would estimate that so far it has cost up to £1,590 and we have a couple of things still to do. We would like to repaint the outside eventually.

“To stay on budget, recycle whatever you can. It saves the planet and saves you money.

“It also keeps some of the history alive and injects some personality into a vintage can. 

“We like to shop locally where we can: online purchases often proved to be cheaper for items. I did get some of the decor off buy, swap and sell sites quite cheaply.

“It is pretty satisfying stepping back and seeing something you’ve created yourself. 

“There is no way we could afford a van that was fully renovated or brand new ourselves!”

Latest DealsThe caravan can sleep the family of five and cost them £1,590 in total[/caption]

Meanwhile, we sold our house to travel in a caravan with our three girls – we ‘unschool’ the kids & let them learn what they want.

Also, people never believe what’s inside our tiny van, we spent months doing it up & it’s even got a home CINEMA.

Savvy mum upcycled an old battered chair for just £10 – saving hundreds on a new one

Sab, 08/01/2022 - 16:06

BEING savvy with your furniture can help you save thousands of pounds, but knowing what and how to do it can be the difficult part. 

‘Cloud’ furniture is super on-trend at the minute, with many retailers selling chic sofas and armchairs.

Tik Tok/mrsmiller_xA savvy mum got a tired chair for free from Facebook Marketplace and transformed it for just £10[/caption]

Also known as ‘teddy bear’ material, these sofas are super soft and are perfect for cold, winter nights. 

But unfortunately, these gorgeous furniture buys don’t come cheap and many of us aren’t willing to dish out thousands of pounds for them. 

These sofas often range from £2,000 to a whopping £10,000 for a sofa. 

However, a mum-of-one posted her cloud sofa transformation to TikTok and it’s safe to say, it’s very impressive.

Posting to her account ‘mrsmiller_x’ the video is captioned ‘Upcycled on a £10 budget’. 

In the video we see Mrs Miller’s old, tatty chair that is in some serious need of TLC.

Mrs Miller revealed that she got the chair for free on Facebook marketplace and with just £10 was able to completely transform it. 

And with a teddy bear piece of fabric, a staple gun and a hot glue gun, she was able to completely alter the look and feel of her chair, making it look brand new. 

Mrs Miller revealed that she bought the material online and ‘just typed in Boucle material’ to Google to find it. 

We think the chair looks amazing and we can’t believe she did it for just £10.

KATIE Price’s neighbours are up in arms claiming people have been “racing quad bikes” around her three-acre estate.

Local residents have allegedly complained about the activity on the former glamour model’s West Sussex land to their local council, claiming its “causing too much noise and disturbance” for the leafy area.

Last week we exclusively revealed that Carl was ramping up his car business and selling a fleet of 12 motors from her rural pad.

In aerial photos obtained by The Sun, 16 cars are pictured outside the sprawling property while another three appear in land beside the nine-bedroom home.

The Sun have contacted Katie’s local council and rep for comment.

The Sun revealed earlier this month how Carl, 32, had parked his second-hand luxury cars at her under-threat property.

In recent weeks, he’s added several more motors for sale and now has a dozen on offer at the home – which could be sold to pay bankrupt Katie’s debts.

Publicity shots on AutoTrader show the vehicles – including a Range Rover, Lamborghini, Audi, Porsche and Mercedes – lined up on the home’s drive.

Her £2million home, which is under threat from Katie’s bankruptcy proceedings, was dubbed ‘mucky mansion’ after falling into a state of disrepair.

Last year, it suffered a collapsed ceiling and flooded kitchen after it was ransacked by intruders.

WEDDING BELLS

Meanwhile, the photos come days after we revealed that Katie has set a date for her wedding to Carl – her birthday.

The reality star has told friends she’s planning to tie the knot with her fiancé on May 22 – the day she turns 44 – and it will be a fairground theme at her Sussex Mucky Mansion.

A friend close to Katie told us: “Katie’s lucky number is her birth date, so what’s luckier than her actual birthday?

“She’s telling everyone that Carl will be her fourth and final husband – he’s The One.

“She’s planning to make it a day to remember – it’ll take place at her home in West Sussex and she wants a fairground – they both love rollercoasters – and a hog roast.

“Carl wants to arrive in a supercar and make a huge entrance. Basically she wants this wedding to be completely different to all her other weddings.”

One thing, however, will be the same – Katie’s choice of celeb bridesmaid including Michelle Heaton.

“Katie has asked Michelle Heaton to be her bridesmaid – she’s one of Katie’s best friends and they have always been there for each other,” the insider added.

Sources say Michelle – who was on bridesmaid duty for Katie’s wedding to Peter Andre in 2005 – could be joined by Kerry Katona (who was bridesmaid at the same wedding) and Cami Li, who was a guest at Katie’s vow renewal to Kieran Hayler.

On Good Morning Britain this week, Katie revealed that wedding plans were full steam ahead since she swerved jail after pleading guilty for drink-driving in December – and she wants to get married in the UK so her mum can attend.

She says it’s crucial her mum Amy – who has a life-limiting lung condition called idopathic pulmonary fibrosis – is at her fourth wedding.

MICHAEL OLISE was hit by a bottle during Crystal Palace’s FA Cup clash against south London rivals Millwall.

The 20-year-old turned on the style in the second half to swing the tie in Palace’s favour.

Palace found themselves a goal behind early on in the first half after a Jack Butland howler allowed Benik Afobe to score into an empty net.

But an inspirational half-time team talk by boss Patrick Vieira fired the team up.

Olise drew Palace level straight from kick-off, cutting inside off the right flank and sending a shot cannoning in off the inside of the far post.

The Frenchman then hit the same post minutes later.

Olise then picked out Jean-Philippe Mateta with a pinpoint cross to put Palace ahead for the first time on Saturday.

Minutes after setting up Palace’s second, Olise went over to take a corner, but was confronted by Millwall fans.

A bottle was hurled at the young starlet, who responded by taunting the home crowd.

One Palace fan responded to the incident on Twitter, saying: “Tears in my eyes, what a guy.”

Another said: “And the commentators said he should be more professional.”

There was also a stoppage in play after a flare was thrown onto the pitch.

The 2-1 derby win comes just in time for Palace’s Premier League clash against rivals Brighton.

Palace haven’t been beaten by Brighton since March 2019.

UK is ‘most immune country in the world’ as data shows 98% of Brits have ‘some form’ of resistance to Omicron variant

Sab, 08/01/2022 - 15:58

BRITAIN could be the world’s most immune country in the fight against Covid-19, according to an expert.

The hugely positive claim comes as data revealed around 98 per cent of over 15s in the UK have some resistance to the Omicron variant.

It means they could experience milder symptoms and an overall less serious disease.

It could point to why hospitalisations with the virus remain low – despite skyrocketing case numbers – explained Dr Raghib Ali, Clinical Research Associate, MRC Epidemiology Unit, University of Cambridge.

But the top doc, who also works across a raft of other roles in the NHS and Public Health England, encouraged Brits to continue to follow rules to not risk overwhelming the health service as staff absence is a “major problem”.

Ways to keep safe, and ensure the NHS stays afloat, include wearing face masks, washing your hands, taking LFT and PCR tests accordingly and isolating if you have symptoms or a positive result.

However he added it’s not all doom and gloom, with lockdown restrictions unlikely as long as we continue on the right path.

Dr Raghib told The Sun: “Basically, what the graph shows is combined data on vaccination with data from the MRC, which produces a monthly update to what proportion of people have had a natural infection, plus dosage and infections by age.

“It’s based on over 15-year-olds, so it’s not everybody, and there’s two factors – one is waning immunity from previous vaccination or infection, and then increasing immunity from boosters, and new infections, and how those things are balancing out, which nobody really knows.

“But we’re probably the most immune country in the world.”

He added: “My general position for a long time has been things are not as bad as many people make out.”

The data, collected by the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) and the Cambridge MRC Epidemiology Unit, suggests that between 97 per cent and 98 per cent of Brits – even if infected again – will have a milder form of covid.

The immunity comes from a combination of vaccinations, boosters and natural immunity.

Dr Raghib’s comments come as 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.

However, the doc warned: “We are very well protected compared to other countries, because of what the very high rates of immunity from a combination of high rates of vaccination, typically in older age groups, also natural infection, particularly in younger age groups,.

“That means that population immunity is very high.

“Omicron is still spreading rapidly. Most regions outside of London haven’t peaked yet, and hospital admissions are still not clearly peaked – particularly outside of London.

“Also, staff absence is still a major problem, so we’re always still encouraging everybody to follow the public health guidance.”
