Stephen tells Sarah that she’s clearly the business brains of the factory and she should think about buying Carla out of her share.

In the factory, Stephen confirms that he’s managed to source the fabric they need at a very good price.

Over a drink, Sarah shares her business ideas with Stephen and asks him to help her prove to Carla that she knows what she’s talking about.

Later in the week, Sarah puts pressure on Carla to hire Stephen on a consultancy basis.

In the Rovers, Carla voices her concerns about Stephen to Peter and Ken.

When did Natasha Henstridge marry Darius Campbell Danesh?

Henstridge began a relationship with Scottish singer Darius Campbell in 2004.

They got engaged but broke it off in early 2010 after work commitments forced them apart.

However, they were reunited after five months and almost immediately got engaged.

They eventually tied the knot at the San Ysidro Ranch in Santa Barbara in February 2011.

The secret ceremony was only attended by Natasha’s sons.

Darius told Hello! magazine: “No-one knew we were there and that sense of it just being for us was very exciting – it felt a little bit naughty and secretive.”

The couple filed for divorce in July 2013, and the divorce was finalized in February 2018.

Speaking previously on Loose Women, Darius said: “In the most bittersweet and wonderful way, we’re dear friends.

“We filed for divorce three years ago. I really meant what I said, when you stand in front of someone and you say I’m going to give you my life, you mean it.

“And if you don’t, you shouldn’t be in it, so get out.

He added: “We tried to make it work and we’ve separated and we’re divorcing. But in the best way and we’re still friends.”

The couple briefly reunited in 2016 and were spotted kissing on a dinner date and heading to the theatre.

Do they have any children together?

Darius and Natasha did not have any children together.

However Darius was stepfather to Natasha’s two sons, Tristan River, born in 1998, and Asher Sky, born in 2001.

Darius admitted the break-up with Natasha was complicated because he became a father figure to her sons.

Speaking on GMTV, he said: “Natasha had two incredible children, Tristan and Asher, and I had the fortune of – over many years – being a very close friend to them and I shudder to say the word stepfather, but you grow to love these children as closely as you could your own.

Natasha shares the two boys with actor Liam Waite who she dated from 1996 until 2004.

“When the pregnancy tests you ordered were out of stock so Asda sends you a replacement,” Morgan wrote over a video of herself and her daughter dancing in the mirror.

“The replacement was condoms.”

Concluding, she wrote: “I mean it might be too late for that, but I guess I’ll never know now – thanks Asda.”

People were quick to take to the comments section to weigh in on Morgan’s story, with one writing: “Bet they was laughing to themselves when they did it.”

‘How can I carry on… what is the point of my life?’ – Joey Barton opens up on battle with depression

Mar, 16/08/2022 - 6:47pm

JOEY BARTON revealed he questioned if life was worth living as he comes out of his “darkest” year.

The Bristol Rovers boss and ex-England midfielder says he thought loved ones would be better off without him and asked: ‘How can I carry on?’

Joey Barton says talking about his others was vital and has now taken Bristol Rovers back into League One, where they have two straight winsRex

But the former Newcastle and Manchester City star turned for help after realising he didn’t want his wife and three children – plus another kid coming – to suffer.

In an interview for Men’s Health, the 39-year-old warned: “If it can happen to me, it can happen to anyone. 

“It’s why it’s important to be honest and get it all out in the open.”

The ex-QPR hardman believes getting “unfairly” sacked by Fleetwood Town in January 2021, suffering relegation with new club Rovers and two big court cases took him to his low point.

And he held nothing about his bleakest moments back from interviewer Alastair Campbell, who was Tony Blair‘s spokesman as Prime Minister and has campaigned for mental health awareness after suffering depression.

Describing himself as an “eternal optimist” until his recent issues Barton said: “I didn’t think I was capable of getting depressed

“But last year, professionally and personally, was the most challenging, the most difficult, I’ve ever had. It was the first time I had dark moments, really dark thoughts.”

At one time he was: ” looking at the window and thinking, ‘Would the fall kill me if I jumped out?’ But I decided that it wouldn’t”.

The two-time Burnley player added: “There’s all these people thinking, ‘You’re a wife beater, you’re a violent thug,’ and I know it’s not true”.

Barton believed life “felt futile” but decided “I am the problem” – one night even worrying that if he went to sleep he’d never wake up.

He said he also thought: “The team is sh**, but if I go, they’ll be better. As for the family, if I’m not here, all that noise and nonsense just stops. 

“I’ve got lots of money in the bank, I leave it to them, they can get on with their lives, everyone is better off without me.”

Barton battled back to a good position, however – also restoring Rovers to League One, where they’ve won both games so far this season.

And he urged anyone who has similar problems to talk about them.

He explained how he contacted the League Managers’ Association and Sporting Chance – the mental health charity set up by Arsenal legend Tony Adams.

Barton also did anger management and studied psychology – to help him not only beat his own challenges but become a “better version” of himself.

Inside Darius’ dating life

In his personal life, Darius has been married once to Canadian actress and model Natasha Henstridge.

The pair married in 2011 and then divorced in 2018 after making the “mutual decision.”

Darius met his former wife when he moved from Scotland to the US, and he became a step-dad to her two young sons at the time.

He previously told the Herald that it was a “turbulent” relationship, and Darius was devastated when they filed for divorce in 2013.

But it was a hard period for the young star – as his Scottish mum, Avril Campbell Danesh, who was a GP, was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015.

After their split, Darius described it as a “grieving period,” and said to the Scottish Herald: “You see, you don’t break up with one person, you break up with three. And in some ways, it’s like a death.”

Here we take a look at Darius’ other famous romances…

Darius famously dated Daisy Lowe, and confessed the pair had a fling.

He said they’d met through her dad Gavin Rossdale but they didn’t date until he’d split from his wife.

“There was a shift that happened a few months ago where we thought we’d go from friends to dating,” he told The Sun on Sunday.He added: “When you’re friends first, you know all of each other’s s**t. That made being more than friends really easy.”

Darius described it as natural and fun, but their time together came to an end when he decided he was better off as friends with the Strictly Come Dancing star.

Before she married Guy Ritchie, Jacqui Ainsley and Darius dated.

They met in 2002 when she starred in his Colourblind music video and ended up in a relationship for two years.

The pair eventually parted ways because of their work schedules but Darius said he still “adored her,” despite their relationship ending.

My husband’s been having a sordid affair in the back of his fishmonger’s van

Mar, 16/08/2022 - 6:45pm

DEAR DEIDRE: MY husband has been enjoying a sordid affair in the back of his fishmonger’s delivery van.

And now he expects me to welcome him back with open arms.

I don’t get why he’d want someone who would have sex in the back of his fish van

This liaison has gone on for more than six months, during which time he’s humiliated me and allowed me to completely unravel.

I discovered he was cheating when I overheard a FaceTime conversation he was having with this woman.

They were both very graphic about what they’d done to each other and what they were planning to do next.

But I can’t understand why he would be attracted to someone who would have sex with a married man in the back of his fish van.

She’s clearly no decent woman.

I am 53 and my husband is 56. We have been together for 20 years and have two daughters, aged 17 and 15.

His lover is 41 and works for his company.

After my distressing discovery, he insisted he would end it but refused to sack her, saying she needed the money.

Over the following six months he watched me fall apart.

I wanted reassurance it was really over but every time I asked about her, he’d cause an argument.

He told me I was ruining our marriage and it was all in my head.

I lost three stone and cried every day because I knew he was still seeing her.

Then he walked out. I came home from work to discover he’d emptied his side of the wardrobe.

It turns out he’d moved in with her.

I later discovered it had all been planned — he had signed a tenancy agreement on a flat two months earlier.

Twice he’s asked for another chance, saying he wants to come home.

Then it goes silent and he won’t answer my messages.

He’s just got back in touch again insisting this time he means it.

I am at my wits’ end and don’t know what to do.

DEIDRE SAYS: He has been behaving appallingly. Even though it is painful, you are better off without him.

He can’t decide to sell the house without your agreement. You have rights.

If the home is in both of your names, your husband cannot force you out.

When you get married you essentially sign up to a 50/50 split on life, and this includes your home, savings, pensions, businesses – any assets.

Nothing can be decided until a divorce is finalised.

Frankie Dettori EXCLUSIVE: William Haggas will have trouble sleeping as the whole world waits for Baaeed

Mar, 16/08/2022 - 6:41pm

I’VE been lucky to ride some true champions at York’s Ebor Festival — just like my dad.

I was six when my father rode Wollow to victory in the 1976 Juddmonte for the late great Sir Henry Cecil and, 20 years later, I won it for the first time on Halling.

Can Baaeed succeed on the step up in trip? We’re about to find outPA

That was an emotional day for me so the race has a very special place in my heart.

I’ve also won it with Singspiel, Sakhee, Sulamani and Authorized.

It is the race that makes stallions.

Of my five wins Sakhee was the best in 2001.

As a three-year-old for John Dunlop he won the Dante before finishing second to Sinndar in the Derby.

He was fourth to Giant’s Causeway in the Eclipse and then missed a year through injury and found his way to Saaed Bin Suroor.

Cheltenham Festival slash crowd numbers but punters doubt it'll make difference FIVER FLUTTER Rinse the bookies with this Hamilton double on Tuesday TEMPLEGATE'S TIPS My NAP should dominate at Hamilton and help build the bank for York

That’s when I first sat on him and he began that season with a bit to prove. Boy, did he prove it.

We won a Listed race and then turned up at York for the Juddmonte.

We hit the front three furlongs out and just powered clear.

He was electric that day — as he was in his next race when we won the Arc by six lengths. He was some horse, Sakhee.

York, as a track, is a place fit for champions too. It’s brilliant to ride.

It’s very slick and flat, which puts the emphasis on speed.

And, of all the tracks, York is the fairest. So there will be no hiding place today.

I am sure William Haggas will have trouble sleeping on Tuesday night and wake up on Wednesday with a few butterflies as he waits for BAAEED (3.35) to strut his stuff.

In contrast Jim Crowley has said he sleeps like a baby the night before he is due to ride Baaeed.

No doubt Jim will be the coolest man in Yorkshire today!

Baaeed is the best horse in the world for many reasons. He has a great cruising speed and a huge desire to win.

He looks to be the complete racehorse with no faults.

While stepping up from a mile to ten furlongs is a new challenge I don’t see it being a problem.

If anything it could be to his advantage.

I hope Mishriff runs a big race for the boss John Gosden. If there are any chinks in Baaeed’s armour Mishriff will find them.

Frankie was speaking via Sporting Index.

Mar, 16/08/2022 - 6:40pm

SENIOR Tory MP William Wragg has revealed he’s struggling with depression and anxiety – and will be taking a short break from work.

In a heartfelt statement the 34-year-old MP said he is “resisting the temptation to give up entirely”.

He’s now going to take a short break from MP duties.

But his team are still working and replying to constituents in need of help.

Mr Wragg, who was a strong critic of Boris Johnson, said he is looking forward to returning “refreshed”, but hasn’t specified when that could be.

“I am only making this statement as an explanation, instead of giving recurrent excuses.

“I look forward to returning refreshed, better able to represent my constituents, loving life and myself a little bit more.”

Fellow politicians from different parties leapt to wish Mr Wragg well.

Tory MP Stuart Anderson tweeted: “Sorry to hear this, hope you are ok. Here if you need to chat.”

Labour MP Alex Davies-Jones wrote: “So sorry to read this Will! Wishing you well and a speedy recovery.”

Members of the public praised Mr Wragg for being open about mental health.

Some said hearing high profile figures talking about subjects that can be cast off as taboo is very helpful to those suffering in silence.

Mr Wragg was elected to parliament in 2015 and currently serves as chair of the Public Administration and Constitutional Affairs Select Committee.

I want to end my marriage, but I can’t bear leaving my disabled daughter

Mar, 16/08/2022 - 6:40pm

DEAR DEIDRE: I DESPERATELY want to end my marriage as I no longer love my wife – but we have a daughter with a disability.

Even though I’m miserable, I feel I need to be here for her.

If I left, it would destroy my daughter

I’m 36 and my wife is 34. Our daughter is five.

The relationship has become stale and taken a back seat while we help our little girl.

She has appointments, consultations and physio, although my wife bears the brunt of most of it.

I admire her as a mum, but there’s just no spark between us, and I don’t get excited by the thought of seeing or being with her any more.

We rarely have sex because she doesn’t turn me on.

If I left, it would destroy my daughter.

The Bournemouth man started his side hustle to save money for his and fiancée Isabella’s wedding this month.

And it’s paid off – he’s made £10,000 to date.

Jamie started his wee side business in 2019 when he started buying furniture from second-hand sites, then sprucing up the pre-loved goods.

He scoured Facebook marketplace, eBay, Gumtree and the tip for free or cheap tables, chairs, desks and wardrobes.

Once they were in his possession, he would clean, sand and give them a lick of paint before re-listing the items and selling them on for a profit.

Jamie, a sports specialist who goes into primary schools to help reach PE, said: “I am a practical person so upcycling seemed a sensible thing to do.

“I enjoy doing it, and during the pandemic my other business wasn’t operating so I carried on doing this. Now, I do this alongside with my other business.

“It does vary a lot to how many I upcycle, it is mostly down to what I can find. I can do around seven to 10 pieces a week but generally it tends to be around three to four pieces. Some weeks it can be upwards of 10, some weeks it’s none.

“We have managed to save around £10,000 doing it.”

Jamie has taken to TikTok to document his upcycling journey, and share his wisdom with others, teaching them how to go about it.

He said: “You can pick pieces up from everywhere, including Facebook, Gumtree, eBay and even the tip. There are certain things you look out for, you go for solid wood furniture rather than flat pack furniture. Solid wood is better quality and with flat pack furniture, you don’t get much value off them second-hand.”

When Jamie has bought an item, he sands it down, adds paint, varnishes it and occasionally adds a few extra bits like door handles.

On his biggest profit, Jamie said: “It was probably £400 but generally that will be down to it being a specialist item, such as old furniture brands.”

Jamie said it would be do-able to make a living off upcycling alone. He said: “You could do it full time if you have the skills and the patience.

“It is a decent mark up that I have managed to make off them, there is a fair amount of time and patience you need to be driving around and collecting furniture. It does depend on how many pieces you do at a time – it can very quickly consume you.”

Initially, Jamie started upcycling furniture from his house but now works out of a storage unit.

You can follow his projects on TikTok @jswoodstock.

Jamie's top upcycling tips
  1. You have to like the furniture you’re doing up otherwise you won’t put a lot of effort in.
  2. Put in the preparation – in terms of the work you put into the piece, such as sanding it down and painting it.
  3. I deliver my furniture for free once I sell it which I find really helps sales.
  4. If you’re trying to sell the items quickly go for light colours rather than dark ones. If you choose a niche colour people might not want it in their home.

I’m worried about my niece as she’s been self-harming

Mar, 16/08/2022 - 6:35pm

DEAR DEIDRE: I AM concerned about my niece after seeing self-harming cuts on her arm.

I am her 51-year-old aunt. She is 14 and seems to be rebelling since she started secondary school, wanting to do everything she’s not allowed to, such as having boyfriends and smoking.

I feel it’s a cry for help and attention

She also lies about everything. I think it’s due to hanging out with a bad crowd.

It is as if she is on a self-destructive path.

She is surrounded by people who love and care about her, but chooses to feel isolated.

I feel it’s a cry for help and attention, as she only really gets noticed by her mum when she is being naughty.

Dele Alli wanted by Besiktas with Turkish side ‘really pushing’ for transfer of Everton attacker who wants game time

Mar, 16/08/2022 - 6:33pm

EVERTON forward Dele Alli is being eyed up by Turkish giants Besiktas, according to reports.

The former Tottenham man, 26, has started just one game for the Toffees since arriving at Goodison Park in January.

ReutersAlli’s form has fallen off a cliff since his time at Tottenham under Mauricio Pochettino[/caption]

Under Frank Lampard he has been forced to settle for a role as an impact substitute.

However, he has had little effect off the bench and is yet to register a goal or assist in 13 appearances.

Just 38 minutes of action across the first two Premier League matches of the new campaign has compounded Alli’s frustrations at his lack of game time.

And according to Fabrizio Romano, Besiktas are now interested in trying to take him off Everton’s hands.

Speaking on social media, he said: “Besiktas are really pushing to sign Dele Alli.

“Both loan or permanent are being considered, Everton are leaving it for the player to decide.

“Dele wants game time as priority.”

Alli was considered to be one of England’s brightest talents when he came through at Spurs.

But particularly following the departure of Mauricio Pochettino, he has failed to hit the heights.

It was reported earlier this month that Lampard is preparing to put Alli into the team while Dominic Calvert-Lewin is sidelined with an injury.

Everton have lost their opening two games of the season to Chelsea and Aston Villa.

Winger Anthony Gordon led the line in both of those matches, with no recognised striker up front.

But Gordon may also be unavailable for this weekend’s clash with Nottingham Forest as Chelsea attempt to close a deal for the 21-year-old Englishman.

I’m a plus-sized model & tried every item from Skims’ barbiecore swimwear and I was shocked by how they looked

Mar, 16/08/2022 - 6:31pm

“BARBIECORE” is the latest pink, colorful trend hitting the market.

One TikTok user took the fad to the next level, purchasing almost every pink item in SKIMS swim.

She also owns her own plus-size fashion brand.

Her latest video gave an honest review of the latest Swim collection from SKIMS, with a bright twist.

Williams purchased every item in the bright-pink shade “taffy,” describing her haul as a “SKIMS barbiecore dream.”

The next portion of the haul was the Swim Tank Dress ($88), a body-hugging outfit.

“Now, this intrigued me because it’s a body-con dress but get this — it’s swimwear,” Williams noted.

I couldn’t believe it when I caught a stranger breaking into my garden to steal WATER from my hosepipe during heatwave

Mar, 16/08/2022 - 6:27pm

A WOMAN couldn’t believe her eyes when she saw a stranger break into her garden to steal water from her hose – during the heatwave and hosepipe ban.

The Buckinghamshire woman has now taken to social media to warn others to keep their gates “fully locked” and eyes peeled for other brazen thieves.

The woman shared the incriminating photo of the man to a community group on FacebookFacebook

In a post on the Stokenchurch Community Group Facebook page, she urged others to be careful after she spotted a man filling up his watering containers in her back yard.

The Buckinghamshire woman shared what appeared to be a CCTV image, showing a man standing in her back garden with four containers at his feet.

The end of her hosepipe can be seen in one of the large containers as it is presumably filled up with water.

The man, dressed in a white t-shirt, dark pants and boots, was looking down at a phone as he waited for the cheeky theft to be complete.

In a warning to other locals, the woman wrote: “Some cheeky b**** came into my garden today and filled up his watering containers, caught on camera, make sure your gates are fully locked.

“Won’t be doing it again as tap will now be turned off.”

She continued to say she was “sick” of having to “nail everything down or lock everything up like fort knox”.

It was not known whether the woman had reported the man to police.

The theft comes as parts of the UK have introduced hosepipe bans, which affects millions of Brits.

These came with the heatwave, and its high temperatures, which brought the driest July since 1935 for much of the UK.

However, the weather started to change yesterday, with the Met Office issuing yellow weather warnings for thunderstorms across the country.

Today, millions were warned to start packing and be ready to go as torrential downpours and flash floods put lives at risk.

Inside Darius Campbell Danesh’s life from reality fame and famous movie star wife to tragic death at 41

Mar, 16/08/2022 - 6:23pm

HE was one of the best loved Pop Idol stars of all time but there was much more to Darius Campbell Danesh’s life than his iconic audition.

The singer and actor was found dead in Rochester, Minnesota, on August 11, in his apartment and the cause of death remains unknown.

PADarius Campbell Danesh lived a full and successful life[/caption] News Group Newspapers LtdMany fans will remember him from Pop Idol[/caption]

Darius’ family announced the said news as his huge cohort of celebrity pals paid tribute to him and remembered his unique life.

Early life

While he lived much in the life in America, Darius was born in Glasgow, Scotland, on August 19, 1980.

The tall dark and handsome Scot grew up in the Bearsden neighbourhood of Glasgow with two younger brothers.

He attended the Glasgow Academy and studied English Literature and Philosophy at the University of Edinburgh before his pop career came calling.

He was born with the name Darius Danesh but changed his name to his mother’s maiden name Campbell in 2010.

POP SHOCK

Curse of Pop Idol - from Darius' shock death to benefits struggle & cancer battle

Finding fame

Darius first came to the public attention with his first bid for fame on ITV show Popstars– which ultimately produced the winning band Hear’Say and the far more successful band Liberty X.

Despite winning over fans thanks to an impressive rendition of the Britney Spears classic …Baby One More Time, Darius failed to pass the early rounds of the competition however he returned to TV one year later in Pop Idol – taking third place behind winner Will Young and runner up Gareth Gates.

He went on to forge a successful stage career, appearing in Chicago as Billy Flynn in two runs of the production, as well as Guys And Dolls, Gone With The Wind and more in the West End.

Meeting the one

He lived in the US and found love with Canadian actress Natasha Henstridge, whose films include sci-fi hit Species.

The couple married in 2011 at the San Ysidro Ranch in Santa Barbara, California, but were divorced a few years later.

Near death experiences

In 2010, he spoke to Hello! magazine about a car crash in which he broke his neck.

The singer had been a passenger in a Porsche when it hit a wall at 70mph after skidding on oil during a sunshine break in Spain.

Darius hit the headlines again on December 17, 2017 when he revealed he had slipped into a coma after contracting meningitis when he drank water from the Thames.

After coming third in Pop Idol in 2010, he went on to win the first series of ITV’s Popstar To Operastar contest, beating Bernie Nolan of the Nolan Sisters in a close final.

A few months after his win on the ITV show, which featured Welsh singer Katherine Jenkins and Mexican-born tenor Rolando Villazon as judges, he landed his first major opera role as he was cast in a new production of Carmen at London’s O2 Arena.

He took on the principal role of toreador Escamillo in the production, for a one-off performance which marked the first ever opera at the venue at the time.

In 2011, speaking about reprising the role of Chicago’s scheming lawyer Flynn, he said he had based his portrayal of the character on his old mentor and Pop Idol judge, Simon Cowell.

Darius starred opposite Ugly Betty star America Ferrera in the musical set in prohibition-era Chicago, and said: “He’s the consummate businessman and a wonderful guy and there’s a lot of Simon Cowell in Billy Flynn in terms of the way he approaches things and I recognise that in terms of the character.”

He credited Simon Cowell with persuading him to take on the role in Chicago in the first place.

He said: “I’m incredibly grateful for the experiences I’ve had and all the opportunities that it opened up and to be able to call Simon Cowell a friend and to be able to have dinner with him.”

I’m plus-size – my Shein haul was perfect for a vacation and every item was under $20
