May added that the government was not seeking to “cherry pick” in the negotiations and that it wanted a trade deal that goes further than the one the EU has with Norway or Canada simply because Britain is negotiating from a different position to those two countries.

7. James McCarthy suffers horror leg break as West Broms Salomon Rondon is left in tears after freak challenge., 20 .[−]

EVERTON star James McCarthy suffered a sickening double broken leg in a freak accident with West Brom striker Salomon Rondon.

Rondon was preparing to shoot when he was tackled by Everton star McCarthy during the Premier League clash at Goodison Park.

But the West Brom ace accidentally kicked the back of McCarthy’s leg – leaving the Republic of Ireland international stricken on the floor.

And afterwards, Toffees boss Allardyce says the 27-year-old Republic of Ireland international has broken his tibia AND fibula in the clash.

He said: “It’s a tibular and fibular fracture compounded. A very nasty injury.

“He’s paid a heavy price for his bravery and commitment. It’s a big blow for him and us.

“Its a loss to us from now until the end of the season, it happens in the game of football but not often that severe.

“It was our own fault and our own stupid play in that area, James recovered brilliantly to stop a goal but suffered because of it.”


NICE ONE CYRILLE Cyrille Regis remembered as Premier League pays tribute to ex-West Brom ace


And as soon as Rondon saw what had happened to his opponent he broke down in tears, sickened at the sight.

He then chased referee Stuart Attwell pleading with him to call the Everton physios onto the pitch to help comfort McCarthy.

While Everton players rushed to help their injured team-mate, West Brom players were left to console the Venezuelan forward.

Play was held up for almost ten minutes as medics rushed to give oxygen to 27-year-old McCarthy while he lay in agony on the floor.

Doctors took time to ensure his right leg was kept supported as they fitted a splint before moving him onto a stretcher.

And the 28-year-old made a point of going over to speak to McCarthy and offer him his best wishes as he was carried from the field.

The sickening irony was that McCarthy suffered his injury desperately trying to stop his Everton side falling further behind in the match.

Sam Allardyce’s side were already trailing to a first half goal from Jay Rodriguez as West Brom searched a vital win to boost their hopes of avoiding relegation.

Only the intervention of McCarthy prevented Rondon from the opportunity of doubling their lead just after the hour.

And his tackle proved even more valuable just after play restarted following his substitution when Oumar Niasse scored to earn a draw.

15. Kabul hotel attack 15 people feared dead after gunmen storm five-star Intercontinental hotel and throw guests out of windows., 20 .[−]

GUNMEN have tonight stormed a five-star hotel in Afghanistan throwing guests from windows and leaving up to 15 people feared dead.

At least four attackers opened fire and took hostages at the Intercontinental Hotel in the capital Kabul popular with foreign tourists and diplomats.

An Afghanistan security official confirmed the attack is ongoing, saying “they are shooting at guests” while an eyewitness said victims are being thrown from the six-storey building.

At least seven people have been wounded and security forces are now clearing the hotel floor by floor.

The gunmen began their terrifying raid at 9pm local time (4:30pm GMT) and are believed to be using automatic weapons and rocket-propelled grenades.

A blaze is raging on the fourth floor and in the kitchen while at least two attackers have been killed in a gunfight with special forces who are laying siege to the hotel.

Casualties are yet to be confirmed but the attackers appear to be armed with suicide bombs, a government spokesman said.

He added: “They are now on the third and fourth floors fighting with our forces. We don’t know the details of casualties yet but they set the kitchen on fire”.

TOLOnews journalist Hayat Amanat reported an eyewitness saying at least 15 people had died, although this has not been verified.

Wall Street Journal’s Ehsanullah Amiri said a witness saw four bodies outside the hotel after attackers threw victims from the windows.

A guest hiding in a room said they could hear gunfire, telling AFP news agency: “I beg the security forces to rescue us as soon as possible before they reach and kill us.”

Seven wounded people have been taken to hospital according to the interior ministry.

Electricity was cut and the complex was plunged into darkness after an initial explosion rocked the hilltop hotel, a counterterrorism source said.

It comes after the US embassy in Kabul issued a warning on Thursday saying a hotel attack was imminent.

A statement read: “We are aware of reports that extremist groups may be planning an attack against hotels in Kabul”.

Authorities are already investigating how the attackers got past security which was taken over by a private company two weeks ago.

It is believed they got in through a kitchen back door after evading checks at the main entrance.

A spokesman for the Foreign and Commonwealth Office said they were “monitoring the situation closely and are in touch with local authorities”.

The Intercontinental, which is not part of the global InterContinental chain, was last targeted in June 2011 when a suicide attack claimed by the Taliban killed 21 people, including 10 civilians.

Security in Kabul has been tightened since May 31 when a massive truck bomb ripped through the diplomatic quarter, killing some 150 people and wounding around 400 others mostly civilians.

No group has yet claimed that attack.

The Islamic State group has claimed most of the recent attacks in the Afghan capital.

But authorities suspect that the Taliban-affiliated Haqqani Network has been involved in some of the assaults.

The deadliest of the recent attacks happened at a Shiite cultural centre on December 29 when a suicide bomber blew himself up, killing more than 40 people.

Oh, yeah
I, I’m already liking you more than usual
All my senses are asking for more
This needs to be taken with no hurry

[Chorus: Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee & Justin Bieber]
Slowly
I want to smell your neck slowly
Let me whisper things in your ear
So that you’ll remember if you’re not with me
Slowly
I want to undress you with my kisses, slowly
I sign the walls of your labyrinth
And make your whole body a manuscript
(Hop on, hop on, hop on!
Hop on, hop on!)

[Bridge 1: Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee]
I want to see your hair dance
I want to be your rhythm
And you show my mouth
Your favourite places
(Favourite, favourite, baby)
Let me surpass your danger zones
To make you scream
And you forget your last name

[Verse 2: Daddy Yankee]
If I ask you for a kiss, come, give it to me
I know that you’re thinking about it
I’ve been trying for a while
Baby, this is giving and giving it
You know that your heart with mine makes you go bang-bang
You know that she is looking for my bang-bang
Come, taste from my mouth to see what it tastes like
I want to, I want to, I want to see how much love you can take in
I am not in a hurry, I want to take the trip
Let’s start slow, then wild

Step by step, smooth and gentle
We’re sticking together, little by little
When you kiss me with such skill
I see that you’re malice with tenderness
Step by step, smooth and gentle
We start sticking, little by little
And such beauty is a puzzle
But to solve it here I have the piece
Listen!

[Chorus: Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee & Justin Bieber]
Slowly
I want to smell your neck slowly
Let me whisper things in your ear
So that you remember if you’re not with me
Slowly
I want to undress you with my kisses, slowly
I sign the walls of your labyrinth
And make your whole body a manuscript
(Hop on, hop on, hop on!
Hop on, hop on!)

I want to be your rhythm
And you show my mouth
Your favourite places
(Favourite, favourite, baby)
Let me surpass your danger zones
To make you scream
And you forget your last name
[Verse 3: Luis Fonsi]
Slowly

We will do it on the beach in Puerto Rico
Till the waves scream ‘dear lord’
So that my seal stays with you
Dance!

[Bridge 3: Daddy Yankee, Luis Fonsi & Justin Bieber]
Step by step, smooth and gentle
We’re sticking together, little by little
You show my mouth
Your favourite places
(Favourite, favourite, baby)
Step by step, smooth and gentle
We’re sticking together, little by little
Until we provoke screams (Fonsi)
And you forget your last name (D.Y.)

Justin previously made an inspired improvisation when he forgot the lyrics to the hit song – replacing the word with Dorito and burrito[/caption]

When did Justin Bieber forget the lyrics to Despacito?

The Canadian crown prince of pop was performing in Stockholm when the crowd turned on him as he claimed to not know the lyrics to the chart smash.

I cant. I cant do Despacito. I dont even know it, he told the audience at Stockholms Summerburst Music Festival.

Suddenly, a bottle was launched at the singer who dodged it just in time as it flew past his head.

Justin previously made an inspired improvisation when he forgot the lyrics to the hit song during a nightclub performance replacing the word with Dorito and burrito.

Why is the song banned in Malaysia?

Malaysia banned Despacito on state radio and television, and branded it unIslamic porn.

The most streamed song in history will no longer be played on any of the government run media outlets in the country.

Communications Minister Salleh Said Keruak said the song was reviewed and banned because of public complaints that the lyrics are obscene.
Salleh told The Associated Press that a remix of the song featuring Justin Bieber isnt affected.

Winds in whipped up to 68mph as the storm ripped through Germany but the Eurowings pilot managed to safely manoeuvre the Dash8 Q400 onto the ground on Tuesday.

Plane enthusiast Hans van den Hovel captured the astonishing footage and posted it on YouTube, where it has now been viewed more than 2million times.

The wings can be seen bending with the strength of the winds as it is thrown on its approach to the runway.

But the expert pilot swings it round and straightens up the 72-seat passenger aircraft as it bumps down onto the tarmac, safely bringing it to a stop.

Many other planes were caught up in the gusts as the winds hit highs of 90mph in some parts of Europe.

One stomach-churning clip captures the moment a propeller plane is blown from side to side by a ferocious storm as it descended onto the runway at Schipol Airport in Amsterdam yesterday.

Storm Freiderike proved to be deadly, with eight people including two firefighters being killed in storm related accidents, with many being hit by falling trees and debris.

As many as 65,000 homes were left without power and people were warned to stay inside, reports the BBC.

BEAUTY fans are going wild for a hilarious review of Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty Foundation.

One reviewer’s outrageously over-the-top comments are so gushing that the review went viral in a matter of days.

Rihanna’s Fenty beauty range has had some amazing reviews[/caption]

The OTT review, which was first Tweeted out by Rihanna fan Shaun Juan, was left by a customer who goes by the name Eden – and they certainly adore the product.

Eden wrote: “I mean . . . I’m trying to be humble but I can’t.

“I’m fly. I only need one application on my face and it looks like I’ve been blessed.

“Like….I drink my water, mind my bidness [sic], and only get petty when it’s well deserved.

Eden left a hilarious review for the Fenty foundation

“I walk around looking like a life-size Academy Award. If you don’t stop and ask me what am I using for my skin, then you’re just a hater ’cause I’m stopping traffic.
“I’m getting invited to all the cookouts, your boyfriend, his brother AND his best friend want to holler at me but I’m faithful to my man.

“My man is trying to find a way to love me a little less but he can’t cause I’m even more elevated.

“And I’m just steady blessing his life.
“What can I say? #440 was good to me.

“I already have great skin…but now….it’s like it ain’t safe for me to walk down these streets anymore.

“I’m too fly to walk with common folk now…… Bless up. And I mean that in the most humblest way possible.”

The “wonder” product Eden is referring to is Rihanna’s Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation – which has already become a cult favourite since launching at the end of last year.

Fenty Beauty launched last year in New York and the brand is said to target women of all skin tones, championing that women everywhere would be included.

But many were left scratching their heads trying to work out why the pop megastar decided to call the range Fenty Beauty.

Previously, we revealed how Rihanna fans found out why her make-up line is called Fenty Beauty and couldn’t cope.

22. Horse racing tips: Fontwell and Chelmsford Steve Mullens betting preview for the racing this Sunday, January 21., 20 .[−]

CHELMSFORD

1.25 – Mullen’s star bet (add to your betslip)

PEACE TERMS improved on her debut when coming home second at Wolverhampton last time.

She has very few miles on the clock for a four-year-old and she must have shown plenty at home to stay in training this long.

1.55

VIOLA PARK has run two excellent races when finishing second at Kempton and here before Christmas. He likes to go from the front and looks capable of winning off this mark.

2.25

DOSE has been running better than her form figures would suggest and she was three lengths off the pace at Lingfield last time. The drop back to a mile isnt an issue and she can take this open race.

2.55

HARD TOFFEE hasnt won for a while but has shown promise on two of his past three runs. Once of those was around here from 4lb higher in the weights. This is trappy and he should be in the mix.

JACK BEAR enjoyed his move to Roger Teals yard and got off the mark at the first time of asking at Wolverhampton last time. Hes up just 3lb for that and has no problem seeing out this distance.

3.55

CLASSICAL PURSUIT came back from a break to run a close third at Southwell last time. That was all the better because he was hampered a couple of times.

He goes off the same mark today and should be sharper for that run.

4.30

FANTASY JUSTIFIER was blocked as he tried to make his run at Kempton last time before coming with a real rattle. He crossed the line a length off the pace there and should be in the firing line again in this similar contest.

23. Kate Middletons uncle Gary Goldsmith urinates in the street and munches on a McDonalds after wild night out with pals., 20 .[−]

THIS is the shocking moment Kate Middleton’s disgraced uncle brawled with pals before urinating in the street during a boozy night out in London.

Shamed Gary Goldsmith staggered around London’s posh Regent Street before collapsing on a pavement – just weeks after being handed a 12-month community for after punching his wife in the face.

The 52-year-old lurched down the road before getting restrained by his boisterous pals – all dressed like characters from TV’s Peaky Blinders.

He then stopped off for a late-night McDonalds before brazenly emptying his bladder in front of shocked onlookers.

One said: “They were having a good laugh. Some of his friends were dressed as Peaky Blinders too, and they were play-fighting together.”

Last month Gary – younger brother of Kates mum Carole Middleton – felled wife Julie-Ann with a punch to the face after a night boozing at a charity do.

A cabbie who had driven the pair home said Gary belted Julie-Ann, his fourth wife, in the street outside their house after she accused him of doing cocaine.

After his arrest, police ordered Goldsmith to stay away from her, and he later pleaded guilty to assault by battering.

He was fined ?5,000 and ordered into rehab after the judge said he had shown no immediate remorse.

Recruitment agency boss Goldsmith has courted controversy in the past for his wild antics, which led to him being known as a “black sheep” uncle.

And in 2017 he pestered a mum and her 17-year-old daughter for a threesome, just days before attending the wedding of his other niece Pippa.

The mum, an accountant who says he fondled her bum, said: The things he was saying to us were just filth.

24. Towies James Lock begs bosses to send cast to Dubai instead of Tenegrief., 20 .[−]

JAMES Lock has begged Towie bosses to send the cast to Dubai on their next sunshine jaunt – not ‘Tenegrief’.

The ITVBe show flies a number of cast members off to sunny destinations at various times of the year, including Marbella and Tenerife.

James Lock has revealed his hopes that Towie bosses will send the cast to Dubai instead of Tenerife
Rex Features

Inevitably, drama does follow the group wherever they go, and last year a number of the stars were attacked outside a fast food joint on the Canary Island.

At the same time, Pete Wicks and Megan McKenna were still struggling in their doomed relationship, and Gemma Collins ended up in hospital despite the trip being for her 36th birthday.

No wonder they’ve nicknamed it ‘Tenegrief’.

And speaking to The Sun Online, James – who recently underwent a hair transplant – admitted: “We want to go to Dubai this year with everyone for filming.

The cast jet off to sunny Spanish destinations on a number of occasions each year
Rex Features

“Not Marbella or Tenegrief!”

Indeed a trip further east would mix things up a bit, especially after show bosses dropped seven cast members ahead of the new series in one of its biggest ever shake ups.

The Sun exclusively revealed how Chris Clark, Amber Dowding, and Mike Hassini are three of the names to be given the boot as producers revamp the reality show in order to focus on main cast members only.

Jack Rigden, Jordan Brook, Maddie Hooper and Ruby Lacey will also not be returning to the new series when filming begins in a matter of weeks’ time.

The cast regularly go to Marbella and Tenerife
Flynet - SplashNews

A TV source said: Towie is like a revolving door and producers are always on the lookout for new faces that can keep the show fresh.

Chris and Amber have left the series as a couple whove just moved into an apartment together and often being in a happy relationship doesnt work for the show.

Mike is also loved-up with a girlfriend off camera and has no real storylines to bring to the show but will continue to focus on his fitness and personal training.

Producers thought Jack and Jordan were really funny and had great potential but they were lost against the bigger characters and unfortunately didnt make the final cut.

Maddie and Ruby only appeared in a few episodes last series and failed to resonate with viewers.

Danielle donned a baggy grey t-shirt with black leggings as she battled the winter weather conditions.

She completed her casual look with a black coat and furry boots as she tried her best to remain dry. Her sons Archie, seven, Harry, six, and three-year-old George all donned matching jackets on the family trip.

37-year-old Danielle was joined by her electrician fiance Michael O’Neill, 30, on the family day out.

Danielle recently appeared on Loose Women where she revealed that her four sons are desperate for a sister as she fights off criticism over her desire to choose the gender of her fifth child.

The glamour model, 34, said to the show’s all-female panel: “They keep saying to me ‘Mummy, is our little baby sister in there yet’ and I’m like no that’s just my food.”

She appeared on the programme to defend her desire to have a ‘designer baby’ – where IVF genetic screening allows parents to choose the gender of their child – after being hounded by online trolls.

The mum-of-four told the panel that the biggest criticism over her choice came from people who can’t have children.

She said: “I totally sympathise them being in that situation because I’ve got four beautiful boys and I love them and I live for my kids.

“I do stand by my decision. I think for me it’s a about a family balance as well.”

Danielle continued: “I totally understand why there’s two sides to the story. Some people don’t agree with it, some people do.

“But I just think for me, I’ve always wanted that little baby girl.

“I love my boys and I’m so thankful that I’ve got them and I wouldn’t change it for the world.”

Paul James O’Grady, MBE was born on June 14, 1955.

He is an English comedian, television presenter, actor, writer and radio presenter.

Growing up he said he worked from the age of eight, doing a paper round and working in a fruit and veg shop.

Before he got into entertainment he worked for Camden Council.

In August 2017 The Sun exclusively revealed how the Blind Date host had secretly wed his ballet dancer partner Andre Portasio.

The pair began seeing each other in 2007 and got hitched during a 30-minute ceremony at the prestigious Goring Hotel in central London.

When did Paul O’Grady perform as Lily Savage?

Before he hit the big time, Paul performed as Lily Savage in the 80s.

He started off working the drag circuit with his act across pubs and clubs.

As he grew popular he eventually toured the country performing.

From 1989 to 1992, Paul performed annually as Lily at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, gaining increasing recognition for his act.

As a result, he was nominated for the 1991 Perrier Award alongside Jack Dee, Eddie Izzard, and Frank Skinner.

Paul followed this with a show titled Lily Savage Live from the Hackney Empire, which proved to be a sell-out.

Once he had gained national success, Paul was then asked to bring his act to mainstream TV.

He made guest appearances on TV programmes like The Bill and Brookside.

But it was when he took over from the late Paula Yates on The Big Breakfast from 1995 to 96 that he really hit the big time.

But he packed it in after one year saying that the early mornings “didn’t agree” with him.

As Lily he also hosted a reboot of hit BBC quiz show Blankety Blank.

Paul still appears as Lily, although not as much, and often for pantomime.

30. James McCarthy suffered double leg break reveals Everton boss Sam Allardyce., 20 .[−]

JAMES MCCARTHY suffered a double leg break, Everton boss Sam Allardyce has revealed.

The Everton midfielder was injured in a freak accident as he tackled West Brom striker Salomon Rondon in the 1-1 Premier League draw between the sides.

Baggies star Rondon was left in tears on the pitch when he saw the sickening injury he inflicted on his opponent as he accidentally kicked the back of his leg.

And Toffees boss Allardyce says the 27-year-old Republic of Ireland international has broken his tibia AND fibula in the clash.

He said: “It’s a tibular and fibular fracture compounded. A very nasty injury.

“He’s paid a heavy price for his bravery and commitment. It’s a big blow for him and us.

“Its a loss to us from now until the end of the season, it happens in the game of football but not often that severe.

“It was our own fault and our own stupid play in that area, James recovered brilliantly to stop a goal but suffered because of it.”

Rondon was preparing to shoot when he was tackled by Everton star McCarthy during the Premier League clash at Goodison Park.

But the West Brom ace accidentally kicked the back of McCarthy’s leg – leaving the Republic of Ireland international stricken on the floor.

And as soon as Rondon saw what had happened to his opponent he broke down in tears, sickened at the sight.

He then chased referee Stuart Attwell pleading with him to call the Everton physios onto the pitch to help comfort McCarthy.

While Everton players rushed to help their injured team-mate, West Brom players were left to console the Venezuelan forward.

Play was held up for almost ten minutes as medics rushed to give oxygen to 27-year-old McCarthy while he lay in agony on the floor.

Doctors took time to ensure his right leg was kept supported as they fitted a splint before moving him onto a stretcher.

And the 28-year-old made a point of going over to speak to McCarthy and offer him his best wishes as he was carried from the field.

West Brom boss Alan Pardew said: “I saw his reaction straight away, he must’ve heard something.

“Sometimes it does really affect you and it did it take us a while to get him round and focused again. It took him a little while, but he got there in the end and almost won it for us.

“Our thoughts go with James and we wish a speedy recovery to him.”

The sickening irony was that McCarthy suffered his injury desperately trying to stop his Everton side falling further behind in the match.

Allardyce’s side were already trailing to a first half goal from Jay Rodriguez as West Brom searched a vital win to boost their hopes of avoiding relegation.

Only the intervention of McCarthy prevented Rondon from the opportunity of doubling their lead just after the hour.

And his tackle proved even more valuable just after play restarted following his substitution when Oumar Niasse scored to earn a draw.

32. Manchester City 3 Newcastle 1: Sergio Aguero scores a hat-trick to maintain 12-point lead and bag his 22nd goal of the season., 20 .[−]

SERGIO AGUERO bagged a perfect hat-trick as Manchester City brushed Newcastle aside to maintain a 12-point lead at the top.

Coming off the back of their first defeat of the season, the Premier League leaders were in cruise control after Aguero opened the scoring with his head on 34 minutes.

The Argentine then doubled their advantage from the spot after Raheem Sterling was bundled down in the box.

But the hosts switched off moments later and Murphy, a ?12million signing from Norwich, produced a glorious finish out of nothing to stage a late comeback.

That was foiled when City’s all-time leading scorer bagged his third and 22nd goal of the season in all competitions.

Pep Guardiola made two changes to his starting line-up with David Silva and left-back Oleksandr Zinchenko coming into the side.

And while Newcastle were keeping City at bay for the opening half hour, their resilience was broken when Kevin de Bruyne’s whipped cross was glanced into the corner by the 29-year-old.

Question marks were raised as to whether Aguero actually touched the ball but the striker was given the benefit of the doubt.

City continued to pile on the pressure in the second half and they were awarded a penalty when Javier Manquillo was adjudged to have bundled Sterling to the ground.

Aguero made no mistake and Guardiola’s side were cruising to their 21st win of the campaign.

But out of nowhere Murphy scored his first goal for Newcastle when he was put through on goal.

With just Ederson to beat, he maintained his composure and chipped the Brazilian to spark a comeback.

Mo Diame almost took advantage of Ederson’s blunder to bring the visitors level.

But the game was over when Leroy Sane danced around the Newcastle defence before laying it on a plate for Aguero to score a perfect hat-trick.

Adrian, 33, has slammed Durham County Council and says they should sort the problem out on the housing estate, near Gilesgate, on the edge of the city, and it shouldn’t be left to his pet.

The dad-of-two said: “I am scared of letting my little girl play outside because I am so worried that a rat will come and jump on her.

“They are everywhere, in bins, cars, sheds and they even burrow underneath people’s houses and chew through the foundations.

“If it wasn’t for Tara they would literally be breeding like rats. We would be overrun with them, they’d start to infect people and cause illness.

“This could be avoided if the council actually stepped in.”

Working as a team, Adrian uses a machine to smoke rats out of their hiding places, before Tara pounces.

He said that in the past the council charged locals ?40 for rat poison to be spread in the area, but this technique failed as the rats have now become immune to the toxin.

He says that the council should now be paying him and Tara for their exterminating services, or else the rat population would be rife.

He added: “It is disgusting. It is a really really bad problem in this area now and has been for the last few years.

“The council are not doing anything at all about it – and they actually charge people for rat poison which doesn’t even work.

“The rats have become immune to it because they are evolving, they are so big.

“People have been turning to me to get Tara to sort their rat problem – I’ve had people asking to buy her off me for hundreds, but I’m not interested.

“She is the best ratter in the business.

“She is the softest dog when she is in the house with the kids, but as soon as she gets outside she can’t wait to get hold of them rats.”

Joanne Waller, head of environment, health and consumer protection at Durham County Council, said: “We take all reports of rat infestations very seriously and although we do not believe there is a persistent problem in this area, we would be happy to investigate should we receive further information.”

Is Jennifer single and does she have any children?

Jennifer and her longtime partner David Otunga split in November 2017 after 10 years together.

They are said to have been separated for “a number of months”, and things don’t sound too friendly as Jen went to court to seek a protective order to keep David, 37, away from her.

A spokesperson for David has hit back at Jennifer, accusing her of using the protective order to gain an unfair advantage against him in their custody battle over son David, Jr, eight.

Jennifer and David got engaged back in 2008 when the former professional wrestler popped the question after less than a year of dating.

Their son David arrived a year later.

Just a month after the engagement, the couple were rocked by a family tragedy as Jennifer’s mother, brother and seven-year-old nephew were gunned down at the family home in Chicago.

39. Sporting CP star Fabio Coentrao smashes dugout and cries after being subbed off against Setubal., 20 .[−]

SPORTING CP ace Fabio Coentrao took his anger out on the dugout after being substituted against Setubal.

The Real Madrid loanee was forced off the field before the match ended 1-1 at the Est?dio do Bonfim.

The 29-year-old threw several punches at the dugout

Sporting CP were leading 1-0 after a 31st minute opener from Bruno Fernandes.

But during stoppage time of the second half, Setubal were awarded a penalty after a reckless challenge from Jeremy Mathieu.

Coentrao lost his nerve and was shown a yellow card, before being subbed off the field and replaced by Seydou Doumbia.

The 29-year-old charged off the field and aggressively punched the dugout several times.

After slamming his jacket onto the floor, he put his head into his hands as he watched his side drop crucial points.

After the incident, he turned to his Facebook profile to apologise for his behaviour. He said: “Not always, inside the field, things run as we want. We went to the fight, we were not happy and that made us angry.

“I live each game as if it were the last of my life. I do not like to lose, let alone when it is forbidden to do so. I want to be champion for my Sporting CP. I felt frustrated and reacted as I am, authentic and genuine.

“I’m a man and not a machine. I apologise for all those who are part of the Family Sportinguista for what we did and for some attitude less reflected in the game in Set?bal.

“The sorrow and revolt at what happened yesterday continue, and I thought of all those who, in the stadium or on television, also felt the same as I did.

“The future is already the next game on Wednesday. The destiny of all of us, Sportinguistas, is to be happy. And let’s be, with attitude and commitment. Our union is still steel!”

Tom’s wife died in April 2016
ITV Plc

Who was his wife Melinda Trenchard?

Tom was married to his childhood sweetheart Lady Melinda Rose Woodward for 59 years and was by her side when she died from a fierce battle with cancer in April 2016.

The couple had one son, Mark Woodward, who was born in 1957.

Linda stood by Tom throughout their marriage despite the lothario enjoying a string of affairs and admitting to sleeping with 250 women at the height of his fame.

Sir Tom once described his marriage as rock solid despite his affairs, saying all the rest was fun and games.

In 2015, he was branded sexist after saying that Linda, who suffered from depression and emphysema, had lost her spark.

Linda and Tom enjoyed a private marriage and were rarely pictured together out
in public.

Linda was crippled with Agoraphobia, a fear of going outside, in later life and friends say the private woman feared being gossiped about.

In a rare interview, shy Linda once said: I feel alive when [Tom] comes through the door, whatever the time of day or night is.

Close friends said she enjoyed housework, watching TV and drinking champagne.

Despite remaining in Los Angeles for many years, Linda was also said to have enjoyed British treats such as fish and chips or steak pie.

A friend of the couple said: When Tom is back in LA they are an elderly retired couple in their 70s having gentle drives and enjoying reading in the sunshine and TV, like a million other pensioners.

AFTER more than 50 years in the music industry and being one of the world’s most famous voices, there is pretty much nothing left to know about The Voice judge Sir Tom Jones.

But have you heard these fun facts before?

Did you know these things about the singer?
ITV Picture Desk

1 Tom worked at a glove factory before becoming famous

Welsh crooner Tom had his first child at the age of sixteen. In order to make ends meet, he nearly gave up his love of singing and instead started working labour jobs instead.

2 Tom Jones is NOT the singers real name

After being scouted in Wales at a social mens club after a performance, the now 76-year-old took the advice of his new manager Phil Solomon and took on a new name.

Tom Jones was picked to capitalise on a film of the same name that was a hit at the time.

The stars birth name is actually Thomas John Woodward.

3 He discovered his love of music as he was holed up in bed with tuberculosis at the age of 12

Struck down with the nasty illness, Tom was forced into bed rest and could do little more than read and listen to music.

He later referred to the time as the worst of his life but ultimately it got the ball rolling to send him to stardom.

4 He more than lived up to his ladies’ man reputation

Tom has bragged that at the height of his heyday, he could sleep with up to 250 women a YEAR while on tour.

His wife Linda, whom he was with from the age of 16 to her death last April, knew of some of the infidelity which caused her to lash out at him years later.

As well as the one son he has with Linda, he is known to have had at least one other child though reportedly had nothing to do with his upbringing and has never met him.

He soon made up for it though with his second release, Its Not Unusual, which catapulted him to the stardom we are now used to him having.

45. The Voice 2018 judge will.i.am five fast facts about the Black Eyed Peas rapper and TV star., 20 .[−]

THERE are not many music stars who have not collaborated with will.i.am at some point.

The Black Eyed Peas star has returned to UK TV screens for the latest series of The Voice on ITV – here are just a few things you might not know about the musician.

How much do YOU know about the Voice judge?
ITV

1 – Years of working in the music biz has left him with tinnitus

It appears that all art comes with a price – and Will has been left to suffer with tinnitus as a result of years of exposure to loud noises.

The 42-year-old star is often left hearing sounds and high-pitched noises that aren’t actually there.

Speaking about the issue to The Sun, he revealed: “I don’t know what silence sounds like any more. Music is the only thing which eases my pain.”

The star suffers from ADHD and tinnitus

2 – He has sent his music to Mars

will.i.am is known for his innovation and wanting to take things to the next level – so much so he sent a song to Mars.

Reach for the Stars, a song created by Will just for the occasion, whisked its way to Mars and played as NASA’s Curiosity landed on the red planet.

It was the first song to ever make its debut on Mars – making him a part of history as the space programme evolved.

3 – One of his songs helped presenter Jimmy Fallon crack the US charts

Will is a known collaborator with musicians from all over he world and all walks of life – but Jimmy Fallon appeared to come out of nowhere.

After taking a shine to the EW! segment of Jimmy’s show, Will offered the presenter the chance to make a song for the characters.

As Jimmy became alter-ego Sara (with no h), Will showed off his comedy chops by becoming her best friend mir.i.am for the 2015 hit.

Following the skits success and its subsequent viral video of the song, Jimmy and Will cracked the charts at number 22 – beating Nick Jonas in the process.

Speaking about how well the song was received on the show after, Jimmy said: “That’s the biggest thing that’s ever going to happen to me, ever! I never thought I would ever crack the top 40. No Ryan Seacrest has to talk about me.”

4 – He was going to be a fashion designer before pursuing music

Ahead of finding fame as a musician with the Black Eyed Peas, Will attended the Los Angeles Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising.

He created his own clothing line named i.am in the process but later drifted away from the art to pursue music.

From then on, he does often work with clothing brands, and created a denim collection with Blue Holdings in 2007 – but is now being sued for $2million for allegedly not meeting his contractual obligations.

5 – The star suffers from ADHD

It turns out that will.i.am’s need to focus on as many things at one time comes from his Attention Deficit Disorder.

ADHD is a behavioural disorder that affects people’s attention spans, impulsiveness and causes them to be hyperactive.

However, it is often diagnosed in children – and Will only announced his diagnosis in mid-2013.

When is The Voice on and where can I watch it?

The Voice premiered on Saturday, January 6 at 8pm on ITV and continues each Saturday night.

All episodes are available for catch-up on their streaming service, ITV Player, shortly after airtime.

THIS is the heartbreaking moment a baby sloth was found crying in pain after getting trapped between two rocks.

Harrowing footage shows the tiny two-toed sloth soaked in freezing salt water with sand in its eyes after it was blown onto the beach by a vicious storm.

The helpless creature was left clinging to a rock after being swept out to a beach in a storm

Rescuers found the ultra-rare creature clinging to a stone as it cried for help on a Costa Rican beach.

The animal had been separated from its family after getting caught in a high tide the night before.

Rescuer Dirk Morgan, from Ohio, said: “We own a lodge in a remote section of Costa Rica. Our guest told us of a baby sloth that they saw about a half mile down the beach on the rocks still alive.

“The sun had only been up for about an hour after a stormy night and high tide. We ran down to find it before it died and scared off a couple of dogs who were about to run up on it.

“It was wet with salt water and had sand in its eyes. It appeared tired and scared and began to cry out to us as we approached.

“With no adult sloths in site we carefully placed him in a box with a towel then took him back to the lodge and rinsed the salt water off its face.

“We then took the baby sloth to the animal rescue center at Tranquility just down the road. He seemed to be fine and happy to be dried off and safe.’

47. Alexis Sanchez says goodbye to Arsenal team-mates and leaves team hotel ready for his Manchester United transfer., 20 .[−]

ALEXIS SANCHEZ has reportedly said goodbye to his Arsenal team-mates before leaving their team hotel at around 11pm on Friday.

And it appears he has moved a step closer to clinching his Manchester United move after Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s tearful farewell earlier today.

The finer details of the deals – with both players going in opposite directions – are yet to be ironed out.

But the Mirror report that Sanchez received a call and before saying goodbye to team-mates and leaving their hotel.

Sanchez was expected to be named as the first reserve to Arsenal’s 18-man squad for their clash against Crystal Palace.

But he may now have been part of the Gunners’ matchday preparations for the final time.

Sanchez is set to be Britain’s first ?500,000-a-week footballer after agreeing a ?118.3million contract to join United.

But the deal has been held up over Arsenal’s transfer plans and whether Mkhitaryan was prepared to go to The Emirates.

United boss Jose Mourinho acknowledged on Friday that the transfer was close to completion.

And Manchester City chief Pep Guardiola congratulated his rivals and his former Barcelona ace on their agreement.

The Arsenal rebel has been offered a stunning ?505,000-a-week, four-year deal at Old Trafford.

Mourinho snatched the Arsenal attacker from Citys clutches when the league leaders felt the price of the package had gone too high.

And while this seasons title race may be run Mourinho sees this as a sign of intent for the next as he begins to make United stronger.

Mourinho said: The team is lacking nothing. It is not the point of lacking something or we desperately need something.

It is just thinking about the improvement of the team in the future.

If we have in our mind in the summer to improve the team in two or three positions, basically to improve the team in all the departments, if you have the chance to do something now it means that you don’t do it in the summer.

Mourinho says the January transfer window is really for clubs who have not done their job properly the previous summer.

But then Sanchez was just a dream, now it has become a realtiy.

He said: I think that’s for me the point of the January transfer window, is to help the clubs that didn’t work well in the summer and they feel they have to do something in January to help what they didn’t do well before.

It’s because of that we don’t like to do things in January because it shows that we didn’t give our best, we didn’t try our best and we don’t like to do it.

But if you have the chance to get some special players, some player in special circumstances, some player that you would do in the summer and you have the chance to do it now, that’s a special situation and you try to do it.


WILPOWER Arsene Wenger adamant Jack Wilshere will remain at Arsenal and could become captain


In the summer, we would probably have three transfers to do.

If we do one now, in the summer it is three minus one.

After losing Sanchez and Theo Walcott, the Gunners are set to bring in ?53m Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

50. Everton 1 West Brom 1: Oumar Niasse cancels out Jay Rodriguezs first half strike., 20 .[−]

OUMAR NIASSE scored with his first touch to earn Everton their first point since Boxing Day — but this match was overshadowed after James McCarthy suffered a broken leg.

The goal-shy Toffees were struggling against West Brom, who had taken a seventh minute lead through Jay Rodtiguez.

But super-sub Niasse came to Sam Allardyce’s rescue in his 1,000 game as a manager when he swept home after Wayne Rooney and Everton new-boy, Theo Walcott, combined.

Yet there was no celebrating for Everton after McCarthy left the pitch on a stretcher and needing oxygen after being caught by West Brom’s, Salomon Rondon, who was left in tears.

There was a minute’s applause before kick-off for former West Brom forward Cyrille Regis, who died on Monday aged 59.

And he’d no doubt have approved of the way the Baggies took the lead in only the seventh minute through Rodriguez.

It was a fantastic ball from Grzegorz Krychowiak over the top of Everton’s defence, who looked all at sea, and Rodriguez poked the ball past Jordan Pickford.

The Toffees looked woeful and in truth Krychowiak should have put West Brom ahead moments earlier when he fired over the bar from close range.

Chris Brunt then saw his cross almost creep in at the far post as Everton struggled to create any chances.

Big Sam spent ?27million on Turkish forward Cenk Tosun to boost his goal-scoring threat yet the 26-year-old failed to impress here.

Instead it was Walcott, who completed his ?20million move from Arsenal last Wednesday, who looked most dangerous.

But even then there were ironic cheers from the home fans, as Everton had their first shot on target in the 38th minutes when defender Jonjoe Kenny’s effort forced a save from Ben Foster.

The home fans jeered off Everton’s players at the break and Allardyce had also seen enough of the woeful Nilola Vlasic, who was hooked at half-time for Yannick Bolasie.

Yet it was West Brom who continued to look the most likely to add to their tally, as Rondon shot just wide.

The striker was then reduced to tears when McCarthy suffered a sickening leg injury.

Just as Rondon was shaping up to blast the ball past Pickford, McCarthy made an excellent last-ditch recovery tackle, and the West Brom striker caught McCarthy’s standing leg.

The Everton man needed immediate medical treatment and left the pitch on a stretcher receiving oxygen.

Substitute Niasse then rescued a point for the home side, who had lost their previous four games, when he hammered home in the 70th minute.

Last night Helen appeared on The Graham Norton show alongside her former lover Liam Neeson.

Helen was all smiles as she and Liam, 65, discussed their romance, which spanned from 1980 to 1985.

Graham was first to point out that she once “dated” Liam, but Helen replied: “We didn’t date, we lived together for four years – we were a serious item for a while. Lucky me!”

53. What is a stutter and a stammer, are they the same and which celebrities suffer with the speech condition?., 20 .[−]

FOR a number of people, conversing can be a daily challenge as they have to battle with a stammer in order to talk to other people.

But what exactly is stammering and stuttering and how can it be treated? Heres all you need to know about the frustrating speech impediment

Actress Emily Blunt used to suffer from a stammer as a child

What is the difference between a stammer and stutter?

Stuttering and stammering are actually just the same thing, they refer to a relatively common speech problem in childhood which can persist into adulthood.

What is a stammer?

A stammer can present itself in a few ways; it can cause the person to repeat syllables, make words sound much longer or sometimes words can get stuck and not come out at all.

It can vary in its severity in different people, some who are barely affected at all while others can find the condition debilitating.

What causes a stammer?

Its hard to say what causes children to start stammering but the NHS reassures parents that it wont be caused by anything they have done.

They explain that the development of speech is complicated and depends on many factors and that problems can occur when parts of this developing system arent quite coordinated.

Tiger Woods has described his experience of stuttering as: words got lost somewhere between the brain and the mouth
Getty Images

As the brain develops these issues can iron themselves out or the brain is able to compensate which is why some people grow out of a stammer.

How is a stammer treated?

If you have concerns about your childs speech development the advice is to speak to your GP.

There are a number of different speech and language therapies for those who struggle with a stammer and each child would have their own tailor made treatment plan.

These could include creating a more relaxed environment to build the childs confidence and working on the feeling associated with stammering like fear and anxiety.

What celebrities have a stammer?

Gareth Gates

Gareth famously stole the nations hearts on Pop Idol as he struggled to get his words out when talking but still managed to sing like an angel.

Tiger Woods

Tiger has spoken out about his struggle with stuttering as a child, he said that the words got lost somewhere between the brain and the mouth. He would practise speaking to his pet dog.

Emily Blunt

The Devil Wears Prada and The Young Victoria star Emily Blunt also struggled with a stutter.

One day one of her teachers suggested she try and use different accents to say her lines and she found the practise worked immensely well.

Bruce Willis

Bruce stuttered between the ages of nine and 17 but managed to control his stutter when he performed on stage.

He said: When I got onstage, I stopped stuttering. When I stepped off the stage, I started stuttering again.

55. Shocked office worker finds deadly Brazilian wandering spider in his Asda bananas., 20 .[−]

AN officer worker had a lucky escape after discovering a deadly Brazilian Wandering spider in a bunch of bananas he had purchased from an ASDA store.

Neil Langley, 52, had popped into the supermarket whilst on his lunch break and had bought the bunch of seven bananas before placing them in a clear plastic bag.

However, it wasn’t until Neil had returned back to his office at the Department and Work and Pensions, in Birmingham City Centre, that he noticed the bag moving whilst tucking into this sandwich.

Neil, from Rednal, Birmingham, said: “I always buy a bunch of bananas to have for lunch and didn’t notice anything strange about them until I returned back to work.

“I was eating my sandwich and noticed that the bag the bananas were in was moving.

“Straight away I spotted the brown spider and it did look unusual but I never thought that it could be so dangerous.

“I did some research afterwards and when I saw the side effects, I realised I had had a lucky escape.

Neil believes the spider, affectionately named “Webster”, may have been hibernating inside the fruit and was blissfully unaware that he made his way to the UK.

Neil’s colleagues had suggested he throw him out the window or even flush him down the toilet but one animal loving worker made a phone call to the RSPCA to come and collect the spider.

Neil said: “We place him in a sandwich box with some air holes in, we even left the banana in there so he had a nice snack.

“I’m not too scared of spiders but some of my other colleagues made sure they stayed well away.

“The RSPCA officer was really interested as they don’t see many exotic spiders, especially in Birmingham anyway.”

Neil returned to the ASDA store, in Tipton, West Midlands, and informed the staff that he found the deadly spider inside the bunch of bananas.

He said: “They did give me a refund and told me that they would be looking into it.

“I don’t think you can blame ASDA too much as the bananas are imported from Costa Rica and South Africa.”

However, Webster caused no harm and was safely taken to his new home at Bristol Zoo.

An Asda spokesperson said: We sell around one billion bananas every year and each and every one is washed, sprayed and manually checked for quality and stowaways before being transported to the UK.

“We pride ourselves on high food standards and havent received any further complaints of this nature.

“We are investigating to see what happened, and will be in contact with Mr Langley to find a resolution.

Neil returned to the ASDA store, in Tipton, West Midlands, and informed the staff that he found the deadly spider inside the bunch of bananas.

On my way to see my friends
who lived a couple blocks away from me (owh)
As I walked through the subway
it must have been about quarter past three
In front of me
stood a beautiful honey with a beautiful body
She asked me for the time
I said it’d cost her her name
a six digit number & a date with me tomorrow at nine

Did she decline? No
Didn’t she mind? I don’t think so
Was it for real? Damn sure
What was the deal? A pretty girl aged 24
So was she keen? She couldn’t wait
Cinnamon queen? let me update
What did she say? She said she’d love to
rendezvous
She asked me what we were gonna do
said we’d start with a bottle of Moet for two

[Chorus]

Monday
took her for a drink on Tuesday
we were making love by Wednesday
and on Thursday & Friday & Saturday we chilled on Sunday
I met this girl on Monday
took her for a drink on Tuesday
we were making love by Wednesday
and on Thursday & Friday & Saturday we chilled on Sunday

[Verse 2]
Nine was the time
cos I’ll be getting mine
and she was looking fine
Smooth talker
she told me
She’d love to unfold me all night long
Ooh I loved the way she kicked it
from the front to back she flipped (back she flipped it, ooh the
way she kicked it)
And I oh oh I yeah
hope that she’d care
cos I’m a man who’ll always be there

Ooh yeah
I’m not a man to play around baby
Ooh yeah
cos a one night stand isn’t really fair
From the first impression girl hmm you don’t seem to be like that
Cos there’s no need to chat for there’ll be plenty for that
From the subway to my home
endless ringing of my phone
When you feeling all alone
all you gotta do
is just call me call me

[Chorus]

Monday
took her for a drink on Tuesday
we were making love by Wednesday
and on Thursday & Friday & Saturday we chilled on Sunday
I met this girl on Monday
took her for a drink on Tuesday
we were making love by Wednesday
and on Thursday & Friday & Saturday we chilled on Sunday

[Bridge]

(Break it down, uh break it down)
Since I met this special lady
ooh yeah
I can’t get her of my mind
She’s one of a kind
And I ain’t about to deny it
It’s a special kinda thing
with you-oh…….

[Chorus]

Monday
took her for a drink on Tuesday
we were making love by Wednesday
and on Thursday & Friday & Saturday we chilled on Sunday
I met this girl on Monday
took her for a drink on Tuesday
we were making love by Wednesday
and on Thursday & Friday & Saturday we chilled on Sunday

What has Craig said about Bo’ Selecta?

Craig became the subject of comedian Leigh Francis’ attention in his hit show Bo’ Selecta, which ran from 2002 – 2006.

Leigh mocked Craig relentlessly during the series, and many have speculated it contributed to the singer’s dip in popularity in the mid-2000s.

However since returning to the charts in 2015, Craig has spoken about the show, and the impact it had on him.

He told Q Magazine: “To be honest, I didnt really care either way. He could have eased off, but had that character not happened, I might still be meandering along.

He also added to iNews: “It actually wasnt [the show] itself which was the lowest point for me. It was not being able to put music out in the way I always wanted to.

This is one of the beautiful things with hindsight; sometimes you just werent ready for something.

57. Celebrity Big Brothers Andrew Brady and Courtney Act sneak into toilet together., 20 .[−]

COURTNEY Act and Andrew Brady continue to set tongues wagging as they sneaked into the toilet for some private time.

Although it’s not clear what they got up to, Andrew begged drag queen Courtney to not say “anything.”

Courtney and Andrew made their way into the bathroom for some privacy

The pair kept silent as they made their way across the bedroom and towards the bathroom.

After locking the door behind them, Andrew told Courtney: “Ssh, ssh, ssh. Don’t say anything.”

While the action unfolds off camera, cameras picked up on trousers unzipping as Andrew warns his pal: “Don’t get f*****g lipstick on me.”

Courtney asks Andrew: “Where should I put it?” to which the Apprentice star instructs her to “push it in.”

Andrew warned Courtney to be careful with her lipstick

After walking out of the bathroom, Courtney admits: That was probably a lot more suspect than it looked.

Andrew joked: Yeah I know. Oof, my d***s hurting after that.

26-year-old Andrew then confides in Courtney about close pal Jonny Mitchell’s change in behaviour.

He whispered: “Jonny’s been really weird with me tonight.”

Courtney beamed as Andrew plucked a loose eyelash for her

Before rejoining the group, Andrew picked off one of Courtney’s loose eyelashes.

After the runaway lash flew into his mouth, Andrew said: “I think I ate it!”

Courtney teased: A little piece of me in you

Andrew recently shocked Celebrity Big Brother viewers after admitting he’d “go to town” on housemate Courtney Act.

During a discussion in the garden with Rachel Johnson and Jonny Mitchell, Andrew said: “If Courtney didn’t have a d**k I’d go to town on that, not gonna lie.”

His comment came as Shane dolled up and gave some of the housemates a makeover.

After a slow start at the Molineux, Keiran Dowell broke the deadlock after 40 minutes.

Following a corner kick, the 20-year-old struck a deflected strike past the hands of John Ruddy from outside of the box.

And the visitors managed to double their tally before half-time, with Ben Osborn bagging the second just three minutes later.

Matthew Cash sent an imposing ball into the box, before the England youth star found the net from the edge of the area.

The Championship leaders came out of second gear after the interval, but they were unable to execute a comeback.

Ryan Bennnett came close after 67 minutes, but his headed effort from the six yard box flew wide of the target.

61. Revealed The rip-off hospital ATMs where patients and relatives are forced to PAY to withdraw cash., 20 .[−]

THREE quarters of UK hospitals with pay-to-use cash machines have no free alternatives – leaving patients and relatives with no choice but to use the costly ATMs.

Analysis of data by Which? Money has uncovered that 22 hospitals have a pay-to-use ATM, with only five providing another free machine.

And 16 of these NHS hospitals are charging above the national going rate, meaning hospitals are cashing in whenever patients, staff or relatives need to take money out on the premises.

Most people manage to avoid incurring costly charges when they take out cash from one of the UK’s 70,000 cash machines, because there is usually a free ATM nearby.

But for those in hospitals, they are less likely to be able to leave in search of a free machine – because they are receiving treatment, providing care or are a relative.

One of the hospitals charging ?1.99 to withdraw money – more than the national median average of ?1.75 – is Glangwilli Hospital in Wales.

Among the hospitals charging ?1.99 to take out cash was Northumbria Specialist Emergency Care Hospital

Hywel Dda University Health Board, which runs the hospital, was sued in 2016 for ?100,000 by a patient who alleged staff told him to walk 23 miles home at 2am after forgetting his wallet.

It had argued that patient Peter Rees, 65, could have ordered a taxi and paid when he got home.

Another is Northumbria Specialist Emergency Care Hospital, which cares for seriously ill patients who require emergency treatment.

It is run by the same NHS trust where two other hospitals have no free-to-use cash point.

Of the 24 cash machines charging for use, 19 are owned by Cardtronics, which is the biggest ATM operator in the UK.

Harry Rose, Which? Money editor, said: “We found that families getting cash for taxis to take patients home and nurses coming off shift late a night may have no choice but to use costly ATMs.

“These people – effectively a captive audience for cash point providers – will be frustrated to learn they are being charged above average fees to take their money out.”

The Sun Online has contacted the relevant hospital trusts and Cardtronics for comment.

62. Mum asks controversial question pondering what stay at home mums do all day so what do YOU think?., 20 .[−]

A WOMAN has sparked a debate after asking what stay at home mums do all day.

Taking to parenting forum Mumsnet, the woman asked other users who dont have to work what they do with their days.

Getty - Contributor
Homemakers were quick to respond and the answers varied greatly[/caption]

She wrote: Those who choose to be a stay at home mum/homemaker, who dont have to work, what do you do all day?!

Im talking the SAHMs who dont work from home. Who dont have to look after the kids all day etc.

If youve done cleaning/washing/shopping etc. How do you fill your day?

Needless to say, homemakers were quick to respond and the answers varied greatly with some admitting their days were pretty leisurely.

Some mums admitted to chilling out and reading in their spare time during the day

One user wrote: Read, exercise, go out for lunch, listen to podcasts whilst Im pottering doing stuff, cook, bake,meet friends, go into town, watch box sets.

Plus all the normal house/admin stuff.

Someone else sniped: I pick my nose and scratch my arse.

Another added: Actually I work a bit now but it’s messing with my cinema visits, lunches and c****** about.

While some cleaned up their homes, others said they would always have a cleaner do that chore
Getty - Contributor

The most popular answers seemed to involve cooking, cleaning and taking to kids to playgroups.

But, another mum questioned: God above – you fill your entire week with housework?

Why?

Why would anyone do that.

I have a cleaner. I fricking hate housework.

Another mum argued that most of her time at home wasnt her own.

She said: Here’s how I look at it.

From 6-10am get ready for school, drive to school, walk dog

3pm-10pm is school pick up, homework, dinner time, bedtime routine.

None of that time is mine.

From 10-3 is my time. To do whatever the f*** I want.

Watch TV, coffee, lunch, friends

Cinema

As well as the cleaning, tidying, laundry, garden etc.

What do you think?

Meanwhile, a furious Mumsnet user found her nanny left her baby to cry herself to sleep so whos in the right?

And, a mum was slammed by her sister for letting her husband put their kids to bedtwice a week because “mummy should do it”.

63. Sunderland 1 Hull 0: Joel Asoro scores crucial first Black Cats goal in relegation six-pointer., 20 .[−]

JOEL ASORO scored on his first Sunderland start to give Chris Coleman’s side a huge survival boost against their relegation rivals.

The 18-year-old pounced in the 20th minute to claim three priceless points and put Hull on the brink of falling in the bottom three.

The Black Cats are now on level points with the Tigers but sit third from bottom on goal difference.

Hull pushed hard for a second-half equaliser but could not match the moment of quality Sunderland’s youthful attacking players served up in the early stages.

When they did test the home goalkeeper, Robbin Ruiter produced a point-blank save from David Meyler in added time.

Sunderland started with four academy graduates but only five league goals between them but the energy of their teenage strikers gave them a much-needed lift against a Hull side who were also low on form and confidence.

The hosts had spent all week trying to sign an on-loan striker – they agreed a deal with Derby for Chris Martin on Friday afternoon, but face fierce competition for the experienced Championship goalscorer.

After drawing a blank they decided instead to give Sweden Under-21 international Asoro his full Championship debut, and it took just 20 minutes to pay off.

Lee Cattermole set a tenacious tone in midfield and when he won the ball, George Honeyman played an excellent pass.

Asoro had time to think about his finish and drilled it across Allan McGregor to give his side the lead.

Hull came more into the game during the final 15 minutes of the first half without translating it into work for Ruiter.

Fraizer Campbell, like Meyler and Larsson a former Stadium of Light player, missed a glorious chance to equalise midway through the second half, putting Evandro’s left-wing cross well wide under pressure with the goal gaping.

Ruiter’s save from Meyler prevented Hull from levelling and they have now taken nine points from a possible 45.

64. Alexis Sanchez set for Manchester United medical tonight amid reports deal is done., 20 .[−]

ARSENE WENGER revealed that Alexis Sanchez travelled north today to complete his ?35million move to Manchester United.

Sanchez is expected to undergo a medical before a swap move which sees Henrikh Mkhitaryan heading to Arsenal.

United’s medical staff were with the team at Turf Moor in the afternoon but are due to meet up with the 29-year-old ahead of agreeing terms on a lucrative four-and-a-half-year contract worth around ?450,000 a week.

Arsene Wenger confirmed the forward was en route when asked why Sanchez was not involved in Arsenal’s 4-1 win over Crystal Palace.

Wenger said after the game: “I didn’t take him because there is the question of him moving to Manchester United. And you cannot drive up north and as well play football!

“That’s difficult so, that’s why I decided to leave him out. I expect it to happen, maybe but I cannot announce it. In the next 48 hours, it will be decided one way or the other.”

Wenger was clear though that the move will only happen so long as Mkhitaryan completes his switch too.

He added: “Sanchez will only happen if Mkhitaryan comes here. That will be decided in the next 48 hours. It is a possibility.”

While Jose Mourinho said after his sides victory over Burnley: “Expect soon or never.

“So close, so close, so close, if it doesn’t happen it is not going to happen. I know my people doing absolutely everything they can. I think they will be successful.”

Sanchez bid his Gunner teammates farewell last night after training having been informed of a breakthrough in the deal.

Similarly Mkhitaryan said his tearful goodbyes to his Man United friends as the players set off in opposite directions on the M6 to hash out the finer details of the swap.

The Armenian’s camp pumped the breaks on the deal to broker the best possible outcome for the midfielder who has fallen out of favour with Mourinho.

United will pay a ?20million transfer fee to Arsenal and ?15m to the Chilean’s agent Fernando Felicevich.

Meanwhile, Sanchez is looking at a ?350,000-a-week wage plus an extra ?100,000 a week for image rights over the course of four and a half years.

He will also receive ?7.5million a year for four years as a signing-on fee.

Wenger refused to comment on an Arsenals reported ?45million bid for Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

But Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke said: “I can confirm that there has been a first request from Arsenal for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and we are not commenting on the sums that have been called from England.”

Wenger cuffed Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc for bradnding him disrepectful for taking about Aubamayeng, when in fact the Gunners boss had said very little about the player.

Wenger said: I don’t know what I said. I said nothing happens and I cannot comment on it. I am quite surprised it looks to me to be a tactical reaction rather than anything else because I didn’t say anything.

67. Charlotte Crosby reveals results of tattoo laser treatment as she removes memories of ex Stephen Bear., 20 .[−]

CHARLOTTE Crosby has revealed the results of her tattoo removal as she continues to get rid of any trace of ex, Stephen Bear.

The former Geordie Shore star had a fish on her wrist and a large cheetah design on her back chosen for her by Bear on their MTV show, Just Tattoo of Us.

But after the couple split for good towards the end of last year, Charlotte wants to get rid of anything to do with her ex and start afresh.

Attending a book signing event in Newcastle today, the 27-year-old showed off the results of her recent laser session at a tattoo parlour in South Shields.

As she signed her books, the black outline of the fish was clearly faded, with a hint of redness at one end from the treatment.

While the cheetah on her back was not visible, Charlotte also showed off the results of having another inking on the back of her arm removed.

The two arrows in a cross formation and an ‘M’ initial had been a tribute to another former flame, Mitch Jenkins.

But the ink was virtually gone from the design, and just a faint pink outline remained as she sat and greeted her fans.

Clearly in high spirits, Charlotte even clambered on to the table at one point, wearing tight black jeans and an orange top.

The star was seen earlier this week with her inkings bandaged up after having the laser treatment back home in the North East.

Bear, 28, chose the design because he said she had cheated on her ex Ash Harrison with him, leaving Charlotte shocked on the MTV show.

But now the couple have split for good, a source told The Sun Online: “Charlotte is erasing the tattoos she had while she was with Stephen.

“Having them lasered off is like her closing a door on that chapter of her life. It’s really positive for her.

“She’s having the fish design, which he gave her on Just Tattoo Of Us, removed and the awful cheetah one she hates.

“Bear gave her that tattoo because he said she cheated on her ex Ash Harrison with him. It’s vile and she wants it gone forever.

“This year is all about Charlotte and she’s determined to leave bad news Bear behind her for good!”

Boss Steve Bruce might still think Wolves’ 13-point lead is too much to make up on but Villa are now only three points behind second-placed Derby.

Brad Potts wasted a chance for the Tykes before Hogan swept home on five minutes and headed in two minutes later to put Villa firmly in control.

Dimitri Cavare soon headed a powerful reply from Steve Mallan’s corner for a Barnsley side whose three changes included a debut for former Ipswich striker Kieffer Moore.

But former Barnsley skipper Conor Hourihane drilled home Villa’s sweet third goal to all but settle the contest.

But defeat leaves the Tykes 19th, two points and three places above the drop zone.
