Celebrity Big Brother’s Kirstie Alley accused of using show to recruit Scientology members: ‘Something interesting might happen’

Why has Kirstie Alley signed up for CBB? (Picture: PA) Celebrity Big Brother is about to welcome one of its biggest housemates to date tomorrow, but why has the once Hollywood A-lister, Kirstie Alley, signed up to a flailing Channel 5 reality TV series? Alley is arguably just as famous these days as one of the celebrity faces of Scientology than she is for her acting career, and now critics of the controversial church have accused the Cheers star of using her time in CBB to recruit wealthy residents of the Borehamwood bungalow to join her religion. Tony Ortega, editor of anti-Scientology blog The Underground Bunker, has also suggested the 1980s pin-up may have been getting tips from Scientology leader, David Miscavige. ‘I think it’s quite possible that she will get some instruction from David Miscavige about what he’d like to see her say or do on the show,’ Ortega began. ‘And if she does try to recruit someone on the show, it will no doubt be a disaster – and perhaps a ratings coup...

‘I’m 100% myself’: Laura Anderson hits back as she’s accused of morphing into Olivia Attwood

Spot the difference (Picture: ITV) There’s always a few doppelgangers in the Love Island villa – Kendall Rae-Knight was a ringer for former islander Kady McDermott, while Megan Barton-Hanson is the spit of Margot Robbie. But the similarities between Laura Anderson and Olivia Attwood have fans a bit freaked out. A new Instagram picture from Laura, 29, had everyone saying that she’s morphing into series three islander Liv. The Scottish reality star, who came second in Love Island 2018 with Paul Knops, posted a photo promoting Boux Avenue pyjamas from her bedroom. Laura knelt on her bed wearing the pink and grey pyjama set and a pair of black-framed glasses, while her hair was tied in a high ponytail. And fans couldn’t help but notice that Laura was the spitting image of Olivia – in fact, Liv posted a very similar picture back in February to Instagram. One of Laura’s followers commented: ‘Soz is that Olivia’, while another wrote: ‘Omg I thought this was liv, I didn’t even realise.’..

Katie Price accused of lying over driving ban as she attempts to sell horse box amid money woes

Fans don’t believe Katie forgot when her driving ban was up (picture: WENN) Fans think they’ve caught Katie Price out in a lie about her driving ban. The 40-year-old was caught driving in mid-July, when she was spotted behind the wheel with her children back travelling from Gatwick Airport. She later claimed she hadn’t realised her ban hadn’t yet lifted. However, fans of her show My Crazy Life think she might not be telling a full truth, as they realised she’d admitted on the programme to knowing when her ban officially ends. ‘I need to get around and I’m trying to think of ideas of how to do it because I don’t get my licence back until August,’ she said on the show, according to The Mirror, after an episode recorded in February was recently repeated on Quest Red. After the incident in July, Katie handed herself into the police and now could face a six-month jail sentence and hefty fine. Katie Price has been banned until August (Picture: Beretta/Sims/REX/Shutterstock) Sussex Polic..

Jamie Oliver once accused by wife Jools of having an affair… because he had grass stains on his knees

Jools got very confused by grass stains on Jamie’s knees (Picture: Samir Hussein/WireImage) Jamie and Jools Oliver are one of the most solid couples in showbiz, being married for 18 years and having five children together. But even they can be rocked by affair accusations – no matter how ludicrous they are. Jamie has revealed that his wife once accused him of having an affair because he had green patches on his knees. But far from having passionate trysts in a field, the stains were the result of something far tamer. Speaking to Closer, the 43-year-old chef explained: ‘My missus accused me of having an affair once, because I kept disappearing and coming back with green on my knees. The couple are parents to five children, from the ages of 16 to 2 (Picture: Getty) ‘It was courgette season and I was in the veg patch.’ The couple are childhood sweethearts, having met aged 17 in Essex, and they tied the knot in July 2000. Jamie and Jools, 43, have gone on to have their own five-a-si..

Kendall Jenner accused of fleeing restaurant after ‘pet Doberman bit a little girl’

Kendall Jenner has been accused of fleeing the scene (Picture: Instagram/Getty) Kendall Jenner has been accused of fleeing the scene after her pet dog reportedly bit a little girl. Kendall was allegedly enjoying brunch with beau Ben Simmons at Beverly Glen Deli in Los Angeles on Sunday morning when her Doberman nipped the little girl. Although it has been claimed the young girl was not injured and deli staff ‘simply administered ice from inside for her injury’, it has now been alleged that Kendall hastily left the restaurant, leaving money for their meal on the table. TMZ say that as a result the young girl’s mother then called 911 who have referred the call to Animal Control. Metro.co.uk has contacted reps for Kendall for comment. Kendall has had the pooch for several months, and in May shared an Instagram post of the dog with a caption that simply read: ‘cute but she’ll rip your face off.’ In a second video shared on the site, the dog can be heard barking; Kendall captioned t..

Travis Scott is accused of transphobia after Amanda Lepore is edited out of Astroland album cover

Travis Scott is under fire after Trans icon Amanda Lepore was edited out of his Astroland album cover (Pictures: REX) Travis Scott is in hot water over his latest album and it’s not even hit the shelves yet. The rapper’s latest album is set to drop tomorrow but rather than its lyrical content causing offence (the norm with music) it’s the album artwork – and not in the way you may think. Astroland’s cover depicts the entrance to a dilapidated and retro-tinged theme park, which features a giant cast of Travis’ head front-and-centre – though it’s the semi-naked models littered around the foreground posing that will catch the eye. However, one of the models in the original snap (taken by the legendary David LaChapelle) has been edited out of the final image for the album cover; a decision which has caused people to accuse Travis of transphobia. The model took it in her stride and simply asked Travis and photographer David LaChapelle why it had happened, though her fans were less forgi..

Kim’s ‘clapback’ to Tyson hasn’t gone down well (Picture: GC Images/Getty) Kim Kardashian has been accused of making a homophobic dig at Tyson Beckford after he body-shamed her. Beef has kicked off between Kim, 37, and model Tyson, 47, following an Instagram diss that turned nasty. Tyson – who is considered one of the most successful male models of all time – started the war when he commented on a picture of Kim as she headed to appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live! In comments pointed out by The Shade Room, Beckford wrote on Instagram: ‘Sorry. I don’t care for it personally’, adding: ‘She’s not real, doctor fucked up on her right hip’, followed by a nauseous emoji. While this was uncalled for, Kim has been accused of taking things too far after questioning Tyson’s sexuality in a so-called ‘clapback’. She commented: ‘Sis we all know why you don’t care for it’ – followed by a tea emoji, a frog (alluding to the Kermit meme) and a painting nails emoji. Tyson responded: ‘My opinion on plasti..

YouTubers apologise after being accused of racism for video on ‘dangerous areas in London’

YouTubers Being British accused of racism (Picture: YouTube) Youtubers Joel & Lia, owners of the Being British channel, have posted an apology after causing an uproar with their recent upload Which ares of London are Dangerous? The video saw them claiming areas of London with a higher percentage of Black, Asian and minority ethnic residents made them feel unsafe, while making disparaging and seemingly racist comments. The pair were heavily criticised for the footage, which at one point saw them say they had come to realise people with head scarves are ‘just normal people,’ and telling viewers they felt areas like New Cross and Lewisham were unsafe, joking that they would be robbed of their Macbooks. They were further criticised when they removed the video from their channel. Joel and Lia have since taken to Twitter to apologise for the tone deaf video. ‘As some of you may be aware, we posted a video about a month ago titled ‘Which areas of London are Dangerous?’ after many of our ..
