- Incredible moment two RAF ‘Top Gun’ pilots avoid hitting each other by INCHES during mid-air dog fight drillson October 3, 2023 at 2:24 am
THIS is the incredible moment two RAF ‘Top Gun’ pilots appeared to narrowly miss each other as they practised dog fighting 18,000ft in the air. Anthony Helcoop snapped pictures showing the Typhoons getting very close during the mission over West Pinchbeck, Lincolnshire, at around 5pm on Thursday.

Anthony said: “I spend a lot of time taking photos of aircraft over West Pinchbeck. “I love watching the pilots from RAF Coningsby practice combat manoeuvres. “We get F15’s and F35’s flying over the air space here, its where they come to practice and they are a regular sight in the skies around here. “Just before 5pm on Thursday I snapped these two Typhoons and thought ‘wow that seemed very close’. “They are Top Guns. Makes you feel secure that these pilots are protecting our skies. “You see them doing all sorts of manoeuvres but this one seemed quite close for comfort. They did appear to get very near on this occasion. “Obviously from the ground due to the angle you can’t tell how near it was for sure – but from my perspective they certainly looked in close proximity. “The skies have been unusually quiet since this happened, so I don’t know if that is connected in any way or not. “I understand some Typhoons have been deployed to Poland to help them out so they may have been training for that. “I keep track on a radar and they were flying between 15,000ft and 18,000ft at the time. It’s incredible to watch them. “I shared the photos online and people just can’t believe I was so lucky to get that moment on camera. “I’m not a professionally-trained photographer at all, I just do it as a hobby, so I was just in the right place at the right time really.” SWNSThe photographer says he regularly sees planes from RAF Coningsby practicing skillful fighting manoeuvres[/caption]
- I lost 50 pounds – my Crockpot meal is easy, flavorful, and so satisfying, even my picky family likes iton October 3, 2023 at 1:45 am
A FOOD influencer has shared a simple Crockpot she ate to help her lose 50 pounds. She said not only is the meal delicious and easy but it even satiates her picky family. TikTok/makayla_thomas_fitMaKayla, a food influencer, shared a creamy chicken casserole meal that helped her stay on track after weight loss[/caption] MaKayla (@makayla_thomas_fit) shared the recipe with over 1.5 million TikTok followers. The nutrition specialist explained that she was able to achieve her fitness goals not in spite of her picky family but with them. “I love a good Crockpot recipe, this one is easy, flavorful, and sooo satisfying,” she said. She started off with eight chicken tenderloins, or alternatively, four to five chicken breasts, seasoned with salt, pepper, and garlic. She sprinkled a box of stuffing mix over the protein in her Crockpot, making sure to coat the top layer. Next, she combined two cans of cream of chicken soup, a single serving of Greek yogurt, and 1/3 cup of water in a bowl. She spread a thin layer of the mixture over the stuffing and covered the chicken with a lid. MaKayla started the Crockpot on high for four hours, returning to reveal the finished creamy chicken casserole. She paired the chicken with a “mindful serving” of rice and a side of vegetables. People took to the comments to thank her for the easy meal recommendation. “I really appreciate your videos, I struggle with an eating disorder, and your recipes and workout videos help me a lot,” said one grateful commenter. “Had my husband run to the store today at 7 a.m. to get the stuff for this! Can’t wait to try it!” said another.

- I’m an esthetician – women age faster than men, 2 mistakes to stop and an ingredient that’s shown to turn back timeon October 3, 2023 at 12:40 am
A SKINCARE expert has revealed two common mistakes people make that lead to faster aging. Not to fret, as the professional also offered an ingredient that’s been proven to turn back time. TikTok @mattrandonMatt Randon, an esthetician, revealed two mistakes that are causing aging[/caption] Matt Randon (@mattrandon), an esthetician, warned viewers to avoid the mistakes in a video shared with over 940,000 followers. The content creator reacted to the youthful-looking woman who revealed she was 48 years old. “If you want to age gracefully, here are some things you should do,” he said. He explained that according to studies, women age faster than men but there were ways to combat it. “First up, this is going to be hard but you need to quit eating sugar,” he said. He explained that sugar causes glycation, a process that breaks down collagen and causes wrinkles. Another thing to avoid was alcohol, as the substance accelerates aging by damaging DNA. Matt recommended picking up the Life Extension NAD+ Cell Regenerator supplements, $41, as well as some retinol and sunscreen. “It’s quite expensive but so worth it because NDA+ has been shown to reverse the process of aging,” he explained. People took to the comments to thank him for his sage advice. “Yep that’s true, I’m 51 and people think I’m 38,” said one commenter who swore by his advice. “I’ve worn sunscreen and stayed out of the sun since I was 18. I don’t drink or smoke. I don’t eat sugar.” “I stopped eating sugar and my acne is gone and I feel more awake I’m less hungry,” said another. Others joked that if the cost of looking young was so dire, they’d give up on the quest: “You know what, I am absolutely fine with aging,” said one viewer who tacked on a wine and cake emoji.

- Neighbours think it’s weird that I live in a tiny home – they’re all in caravans & house boats… it’s the same thingon October 3, 2023 at 12:03 am
A TINY home owner has hit back at neighbours who are surprised by the way he lives even though they stay in caravans and house boats. David and his partner Becky bought a tiny house after deciding to cut down on space and live a better life. David claims that his tiny home is no different to people who live in caravans and house boatsYouTube/Living The Tiny Life YouTube/Living The Tiny LifeHowever, the tiny house has its disadvantages – such a lack of headroom on the top floor[/caption] The couple, who live with their small dog Digby, have found more financial freedom following their move to a tiny house. David frequently vlogs his journey with Becky on his YouTube channel Living The Tiny Life and encourages people to follow in their footsteps. However, in a video explaining why the couple decided to buy their tiny house, David hit back at his neighbours who think it’s weird. Explaining his decision to go small, he said: “I wouldn’t say it’s extreme but it’s quite an unusual thing to do – particularly in the UK. “Tiny houses aren’t so much of a thing but quite a lot of people live a tiny lifestyle. “I think that’s become more apparent since we’ve been living on a campsite because there’s a lot of people here that live in caravans full time. “You’ve also got people that live on canal boats, so I think the tiny lifestyle is quite active.” David claims that a huge benefit of him and Becky living in their tiny house is how their required income is significantly less. It enables them to have the freedom of not having to keep one specific job or risk losing their home. “We also have the option of saving more money or regaining our time through working less,” David said. “I think you’d be surprised how easy it is and I wish we’d done it sooner!” he adds. Although David claims that he doesn’t need a “big house full of clutter”, he accepts that there are disadvantages to the limited space. He said: “Obviously there are a few cons – mainly compromises such as head room upstairs. “I’m six foot tall and I’ve got about an inch of head room spare downstairs and then obviously upstairs there isn’t any head room. “We do occasionally bang our heads on the ceiling, I will say that, but I think that’s just kind of always going to happen.” Elsewhere, one woman bought a tiny home for herself after her kids moved out and now has exactly what she wanted. Karen bought a 16ft box home for herself and her cat to live in after feeling like she had way too much space in her home. In even more extreme circumstances, one man lives in a debt free home that he made out of mud and built for £150. Sage Stoneman set himself the goal of spending as little money as possible on his naturistic home in order to be “connected to the environment”.

- I’m an expert car salesman – word you must never say at dealership… they’ll think you’re an idiot & charge MOREon October 2, 2023 at 11:58 pm
AN EXPERT car salesman has revealed the one word buyers should NEVER use at a car dealership. Speaking on the CarEdge YouTube channel, Ray Shefska revealed a term which makes shoppers look desperate – and could persuade salesmen to charge you more. YouTube/CarEdgeAn expert car salesman has revealed the one word buyers should NEVER use at a car dealership[/caption] He said revealing you “love” a motor while test driving it makes the seller think you’re a pushover who’ll agree to any fee. The expert – who has been a salesman for 40 years – said: “Never say to the salesperson ‘I really love this vehicle’. “You just don’t want to do that.” He said the car salesman will immediately think you’ll be willing to spend any amount of money to get the motor you want. Ray added: “Keep that information to yourself. Any time you give a hint to your salesperson as to how emotionally attached you are to the product that you’re looking at, there are bells going off in that salesperson said and dollar signs flashing in front of his eyes. “You always want to keep your emotions close to your chest.” It comes after Ray shared the “five dumbest things” car dealers can say to their customers. And he shared the nine words which should make you run a mile when shopping for a new motor. CarEdge, which has nearly 400,000 subscribers on YouTube, helps drivers with informational videos and advice on how to buy or sell a car. It was founded in 2020 by father-son duo Ray and Zach Shefska, in a bid to create transparency in the automotive industry.

- Soak up Portuguese sun in Algarve with plush hotel and restaurants serving authentic Nandos-style Peri Peri chickenon October 2, 2023 at 11:53 pm
A DJ pumps out summer-vibe tunes, while we soak up Atlantic Ocean views from a rooftop terrace. The soundtrack is perfect for an international crowd of families, honeymooners and cool kids, all enjoying the end to another spectacular day at the W Algarve hotel. GettyThe W Algarve hotel is a 30-minute drive from the popular town of Albufeira[/caption] Yves Garneau 2019You can relax and take in breathtaking views at the pool area[/caption] It’s not just the sunsets that are to die for. Every part of this design-led hotel is a joy to admire. At the hotel’s flagship Paper Moon restaurant, we were served a feast of Italian dishes, from grilled octopus and king prawns to homemade pasta and juicy steaks. Keen not to miss out on any of it, I insisted my family followed a strict dish-sharing policy. It worked a treat until puddings, when my daughters Savannah, 12, and Scarlett, nine, scoffed all the profiteroles and tiramisu before I could get a look-in. I was informed they were delicious. Only a nightcap at the hotel’s Sea Sky bar, overlooking the Armação de Pera bay, cheered me up. The next morning, our biggest challenge was tearing ourselves away from our Residence apartment. It featured two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a kitchen and dining room and every toiletry you could dream of, plus a private garden area for sunbathing. My daughters could have spent the day playing with the room’s swanky mood-lighting system. But best of all, you have the services of a swish hotel at your fingertips. It’s luxury worth shelling out for While on the more expensive end of the scale for Algarve hotels, the spectacular modern design and quirky mod cons make it luxury worth shelling out for. Those travelling without kids in tow can enjoy the Wonderful rooms — vast spaces with king-size beds, sitting area and walk-in wardrobes as well as a spacious balcony from £167 per night in January. Whenever and wherever you stay, the breakfast buffet is a must. Our jaws dropped at the huge variety of treats, from poached eggs to fresh fruit, pancakes and waffles. Trays of freshly-baked Portuguese custard tarts proved irresistible. Yves Garneau 2019The spectacular modern design and quirky mod cons of the W make it luxury worth shelling out for[/caption] With bellies full, it was time to burn off a few calories. While my mum Marsha headed off for a yoga session on the sun terrace, the kids made a beeline for the split-level pools. The sweeping, serene infinity pool, featuring a jacuzzi-style area is for those aged 12 and over. We headed for the fun-filled second pool, where a selection of inflatables draw the hotel’s youngsters. The pool toys were an instant ice-breaker, and my girls quickly made friends. Leaving them under the watchful eye of their grandmother, I went off to explore. The W resort is a 30-minute drive from Faro airport and the popular town of Albufeira. Here there is a host of activities from dolphin cruises and water parks to the sprawling golf courses for which the Algarve is famous. Closer to the hotel, a complimentary shuttle bus takes you to Praia do Castello, a golden stretch of sand, enclosed by cliffs. If that’s too much effort, it’s a five-minute walk to Evaristo Beach, which has an excellent seafood restaurant with a popular beach bar. Next up was the hotel’s spa facilities. Just one day into my sunshine break, I’d already relaxed into holiday mode, but a blissful back, neck and head massage sealed the deal. I could have lounged in the steam room and sauna all weekend, but dad duty called and it was time for another foodie adventure. Seeking out the most authentic Nando’s-style dinner we could, we we discovered the Ramires restaurant just a few miles away in the little village of Guia. instagram/restauranteramires1964At the Ramires restaurant enjoy an authentic Nando’s-style dinner[/caption] Established in 1964 and split over three levels, it has a menu that focuses purely on Peri-Peri chicken. For just over £10 you can enjoy a huge portion of meat, the freshest fries and a tasty tomato salad. A million Brits typically head to this part of Portugal every year. For an oasis of calm among the bustling tourist hotspots, the W Algarve is just the ticket. GO: ALGARVE GETTING THERE: Multiple airlines including Ryanair, easyJet and British Airways fly to Faro from most UK airports. Return flights in January from around £50pp. See skyscanner.net.

- I snagged dream job working on picturesque beaches & in luxury hotels… but then I realised brutal truth about my roleon October 2, 2023 at 11:46 pm
A WOMAN who snagged a dream job working on picturesque beaches and luxury hotels says that there are downsides. Many of us will have often dreamed about working from home abroad – logging off to take a dip in the pool and catch some rays. Instagram/sonyabarlowukSonya Barlow can work from anywhere thanks to her super-flexible job[/caption] Instagram/sonyabarlowukSonya has even checked emails while on safari in Kenya[/caption] For consultant Sonya Barlow, 30, this dream has become reality. Sonya works for three companies which all allow her to work remotely from places of her choosing. She can earn money while travelling, making it a solid money-saving opportunity. A big travel lover, Sonya seized the opportunity to work from wherever her heart desires and constantly travels around stunning locations for her job. She has set up office in picturesque spots ranging from Mauritius, Estonia, Turkey and Nairobi. To make life even sweeter, Sonya stays in beautiful hotels kitted out with gyms and spas, turning her free time into a dream holiday. And she has even checked her emails while on a safari in Kenya. Speaking to MailOnline, she said: “I’m in a better headspace, I’m focused, I’m more productive. “I’m able to turn or offload my apps. I can turn my social media off. I am able to get the work done.” The business author and radio presenter for BBC said she finds changing screens regularly and being in new environments can help “increase my mental cognitive functions”. And she added that the freedom of being able to control her working hours a bit more has been invaluable. She said: “Because I’m neurodivergent I can give my brain a rest, which is really important.” The award-winning entrepreneur is founder of the @LMFnetwork and is a prominent diversity business coach and TEDx speaker. Sonya said that her working arrangements make it an easier way to travel around, And she also admitted that the sunshine was a huge factor in enjoying her work abroad. She said: “The great thing about working abroad, not just in the UK, is that the sunshine lasts a little bit longer and so you are not worried about ‘Oh I need to go the gym, or go for a walk and get my Vitamin D’ in the morning. “I can actually get the work done and then in the evening I can go and enjoy myself and be in a better headspace.” But Sonya did admit that her working from home life did have some downsides. The consultant said that there were challenges including collaboration with her team who are miles away, Sonya said: “The negatives of not being in an office environment is that you don’t get to collaborate with your team in the same way. “There’s a lack of networking when you’re not in the office. You don’t really know what’s happening day to day so you need to be constantly informed.” Another negative she said was that you are constantly working with technology, so finding ways of offsetting that is key. It goes without saying that if your laptop or Wifi crashes, you will find yourself in a tight pickle.

- Dame Sharon White to leave John Lewis after shutting stores, scrapping staff bonuses and suffering heavy losseson October 2, 2023 at 11:43 pm
AFTER three bumpy years as chairwoman, Dame Sharon White is to leave the JOHN LEWIS PARTNERSHIP, barely making a dent in her turnaround plans. John Lewis said Dame Sharon will step down in 2025, which will make her the shortest-serving chairman in the retailer’s 160-year-history. After three bumpy years as chairwoman, Dame Sharon White is to leave the John Lewis Partnership, barely making a dent in her turnaround plansFree for editorial use PASince taking charge, she shut 16 department stores, scrapped staff bonuses and suffered heavy losses at both John Lewis and Waitrose[/caption] Dame Sharon White’s record as boss of John Lewis Her predecessor, Sir Charlie Mayfield, was in the post for 12 years. As a former senior staffer at The Treasury and head of the regulator Ofcom, Dame Sharon was criticised for being unqualified to manage the retail group. Since taking charge, she shut 16 department stores, scrapped staff bonuses and suffered heavy losses at both John Lewis and Waitrose. Almost all of the top 200 managers also left, leading to a brain drain. Around 4,000 jobs in total have been lost. Her plans to generate 40 per cent of the group’s profits outside of retail in housing developments and garden centres were also stalled. And this month, she admitted plans to generate sustainable profits of £400million would be delayed by another two years to 2026. Retail expert Richard Hyman said: “Sharon was able to empathise with the touchy-feely bit of John Lewis’s social contract but she didn’t realise that it only exists if it can flog stuff too.” Food rise rate below 10% STRAPPED shoppers can relax — as the rate of food price inflation fell below ten per cent for the first time in more than a year. Food price inflation was at a record 19.7 per cent in May, with the poorest households — who spend more of their income on groceries and other essentials — hit the hardest. But as wholesale costs have decreased, supermarkets have been lowering the price of pints of milk, margarine, fish and vegetables as they wage a price war with their rival discounters. Shoppers switching to budget-friendly Aldi and Lidl and trading down to cheaper own-brand ranges have cushioned themselves from the rate of grocery price inflation. But a weekly food shop still costs far more than it used to. New figures from the British Retail Consortium show food inflation eased to 9.9 per cent in September, down from 11.5 per cent in August, marking the fifth month of a falling rate of price increases in a row. Grocery inflation is at its lowest level since August 2022 and the month-on-month drop is the first in two years — while non-food retail inflation also eased. The high street saw inflation at 4.4 per cent in September, down from 4.7 per cent in August, in figures according to the BRC. Overall shop price inflation fell to 6.2 per cent, down from 6.9 per cent in August. Helen Dickinson, chief executive of the BRC, said she expected shop price inflation to “continue to fall”. She said “fierce competition between retailers” helped to lower food prices, adding: “Customers will have found lower prices this month.” UK home prices in 5.3% fall HOUSES have dropped by £14,500 in value over the past year as prices fell for the first time since the aftermath of the financial crisis. GettyProperties in the South West have suffered the biggest drop, falling by 6.3 per cent to an average price of £301,600[/caption] The average house price is 5.3 per cent cheaper than it was last September, a report by Nationwide found. The September slump is the first time prices have fallen across the country since 2009. Property experts have blamed mortgage costs for dampening the market, with a 30 per cent drop in the average number of mortgages approved in August. Properties in the South West have suffered the biggest drop, falling by 6.3 per cent to an average price of £301,600. Robert Gardner, the chief economist at Nationwide, said higher mortgage rates mean a first-time buyer with a 20 per cent deposit would now have to spend 38 per cent of their take home pay on monthly mortgage costs, well above the usual 29 per cent. B-stocks & shares GERMAN sandal brand Birkenstock will be valued at more than $9billion (£7.4billion) in an upcoming stock market listing in New York. After a boost from their Barbie film feature, Birkenstock said it would sell its shares for between $44 and $49 each, following investor support. The shoe’s punchy price suggests revived enthusiasm for company listings in the US. London has the lowest amount of listings this year on record. Pendragon flies SHARES in car dealership Pendragon rose by another five per cent to 25p yesterday after one of its trio of bidders sweetened its takeover offer. American groups Lithia and AutoNation and Swedish group Hedin are all interested. Lithia said it is now offering £397million for just the UK showrooms in a deal that would roll-out Pendragon’s technology to the US. Pendragon had already agreed to a £280million deal with Lithia to sell all of its UK showrooms and keep its software business. ANALYSTS at Citi have good news for drivers after predicting oil could fall to £70-a-barrel next year. Pump prices are set by the cost of wholesale oil, which has touched $95-a-barrel after supply cuts by Russia and Saudi Arabia. ‘Spy’ boss alert COMPANIES have been warned about “excessive” monitoring of staff amid a growing trend to use software to track their attendance. The shift to remote working and subsequent drive to get employees back to offices has led to some firms monitoring activities including screenshots of staff’s social media, webcam footage and audio.

Kendall signed an £11million deal to become the latest face of L’Oreal back in July, The Sun revealed. L’Oreal snapped up Kendall after she wore their make-up to New York’s glittering Met Gala in May, causing a social media meltdown. Brand and culture expert Nick Ede, who runs a PR firm in London, said at the time: “This is a great signing that shows L’Oreal is moving with the times. “Signing a reality star rather than another actress shows that they recognise the importance of social media. “The company has always been very inclusive, promoting older stars such as Jane Fonda and Helen Mirren, and Latin stars Eva Longoria and Jennifer Lopez. “The slogan “because you’re worth it” is also a marketing phenomenon. It’s given people a very empowering, sexy and strong phrase. “You can be any size, any shape, look any way — but when you say ‘it’s because I’m worth it’, people know what you mean.”
- How pig farmer went from millionaire to murderer as wife wins £750k divorce while he serves life for shotgun slayingon October 2, 2023 at 11:37 pm
The wife of a millionaire pig farmer turned murderer has won a £750,000 divorce payout – while he serves life for a shotgun slaying. James Seales, 66, from County Down, was jailed for the 2012 murder of Philip Strickland – after claiming he had been at home watching Emmerdale. Former Ulster Volunteer Force James Seales killed Philip Strickland in a County Down drugs feudPacemaker Press PA:Press AssociationForensic officers at the scene of the shotgun blasting in 2012[/caption] PA:Press AssociationStrickland had been secretly running a cannabis factory on Seales’ land[/caption] Now his ex-wife Alison has won three-quarters of the couple’s £1million fortune. She told the High Court that she was “terrified” of her killer ex-husband – and that she was “psychologically scarred from her many years of living in an abusive relationship”. Judge Evan Bell said that Seales’ “conduct in the carrying out of a murder” barred him from getting an equal share. Seales, a former member of the Ulster Volunteer Force, was jailed in 2014 for at least 15 years after he killed Philip Strickland with a shotgun. His sons Ian and Jason Weir were also jailed for their part in the brutal murder. The jury heard how Seales ordered Strickland to remove a cannabis factory which he had secretly run on the farmer’s land. Seales was later stabbed and beaten with iron bars by a gang of men including Strickland, breaking his arms – before the men urinated on him. Offensive graffiti and Facebook comments soon appeared slamming Seales. Strickland was also known to have stolen 10,000 Ecstasy tablets from drug dealer Stephen McCaughey, a comrade of Seales in the Ulster Volunteer Force – the most notorious of Northern Ireland’s Loyalist militias. Seales, his sons and McCaughey then ambushed Strickland at a yard on the outskirts of Comber, County Down. They shot Strickland in the leg and bundled him into his car, which he had bought the day before. The men then drove the car to a nearby road, where Strickland was blasted again in the face. Do you know more? Email Harry Goodwin: firstname.lastname@example.org McCaughey, from the West Winds Estate, was jailed for life with a minimum tariff of ten years. Jason Weir was sentenced to nine and a half years – while Ian, who testified against his dad, was only jailed for four. Mr Justice Weir told Seales: “You were the prime mover, director and controller of these wicked events. “You took charge of this operation. You brought the loaded shotgun. “You fired the first shot and you directed the bundling of the injured Mr Strickland in to his own car. “If you didn’t actually fire the second shot, I am satisfied that you directed it.” Local media has reported that a fifth UVF member involved in the killing is thought to remain at large. RED HANDED The shameless pig farmer said in 2020 that lost CCTV footage from his home would have proved his innocence. Seales said that he was watching Emmerdale in his County Down farmhouse on the night of Strickland’s murder – and called cops when he saw a stranger’s car on his drive. Speaking from the loyalist wing of Maghaberry Prison, he told the Belfast Telegraph: “The CCTV will show that I never left the house. “After I was arrested, the recording disappeared. It was lifted out of the house. “I’m now trying to get it back because it proves I had nothing to do with killing Philip Strickland.” Seales claimed that he only went to the scene of the murder because Jason Weir asked him for “back-up” in a fight. But the court heard how Weir burned Strickland’s blood-spattered car in a deliberate effort to destroy evidence. Seales also denied claim made against him in court that he offered his sons £500,000 to take the rap for the killing. Trial judge Mr Justice Weir said the evidence against Seales was “formidable” – despite the farmer’s protests.
- Priti Patel slams gender ideology and insists ‘political correction’ has taken over schools during rallyon October 2, 2023 at 11:37 pm
PRITI Patel launched an attack on gender ideology as she called for parents to have a say on what their kids learn in school. The former Home Secretary said she was horrified by woke ideas being promoted by taxpayer-funded bodies. Priti Patel launched an attack on gender ideology – blaming the ‘corrosive culture’ on socialismReuters She said a culture of “political correction” had taken over schools, councils and government departments in Whitehall. And the senior Tory blamed the “corrosive culture” on socialism. She told a rally of the New Conservatives in Manchester: “We need to call out these appalling ideas and we have to reject them. “I’m horrified by what I hear from parents. “I just find it very, very concerning where children are being targeted around gender issues, parents’ rights are now being taken away. “We do now need to go back to our institutions, back to our schools, and give, for example, parents the right to say ‘no’. It’s as simple as that. Ms Patel said she wanted the Tories to “take back a degree of control” in local bodies and schools to make sure the rights of parents are heard.

SPOTIFY’s boss has revealed the real reason that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s podcast deal was scrapped. Daniel Ek, chief executive of the streaming giant, shared his thoughts after the Sussexes pocketed an estimated £18million.

Spotify and Archewell released a joint statement back in June claiming that the deal was ended by “mutual agreement”. Shedding new light on the decision not to renew Harry and Meghan’s deal, Spotify boss Ek suggested that the podcast “didn’t work”. He told the BBC: “We thought new innovation was needed to happen here. “We thought we can come in and offer a great experience that both makes consumers very happy and allows new creators new avenues. “And the truth of the matter is some of it has worked, some of it hasn’t. “We’re learning from those and we are moving on and we wish all of the ones we didn’t renew with the best of success they can have going forward.” Ek was speaking to the BBC’s Zoe Kleinman who quizzed him on whether 12 podcasts across two-and-a-half years from the Sussexes was worth £18million. She said his response had been “very diplomatic”. On a conference call with financial analysts earlier this year, Ek conceded mistakes were made during a spree of more than $1billion as it attempted to establish itself as the top competitor in the industry. Meghan revealed she had signed the podcast deal in December 2020 following the pair’s departure from the Firm. But it took a further 18 months before the Archetypes series was launched in August 2022. Meghan’s show sparked controversy after claiming her baby Archie had to be saved from a fire when the Sussexes were on a royal tour of Africa. The Duchess of Sussex, 41, also told listeners she quit an $800-an-episode job as a briefcase model on American game show Deal or No Deal because she felt “objectified”. Being ditched by Spotify was the latest shattering loss for the couple. Meg’s animated series Pearl was ditched by Netflix last year. She had been working on it with Sir Elton John’s producer husband David Furnish. The show was canned as part of cutbacks amid a collapse in Netflix subscribers. On a conference call with financial analysts earlier this year, Ek conceded mistakes were made during a spree of more than $1billion as it attempted to establish itself as the top competitor in the industry.

- We live in a van with our 2 cats – wild animals are a concern while traveling, we have to keep a very close eye on themon October 2, 2023 at 11:15 pm
A TRAVELER has shared a tour of her live-in van that she shares with her partner and two cats. She said due to the wild animals that are out while on the road, they need to keep a close eye on their beloved pets. Scarlet, a traveler, gave followers a tour of their live-in vanTikTok/scarletandseth She and her partner share the space with their two catsTikTok/scarletandseth Scarlet (@scarletandseth) shared a video tour of their van with over 330,000 TikTok followers. In just 30 seconds, the content creator guided followers through her home, starting off with a fully installed toilet in their bathroom. She slid the toilet into the wall and pulled a shower head off the wall to reveal the small space doubled for their cleansing needs, with a door for privacy. Next, she showed off their transparent bug door for the warmer seasons. Moving onto their living space, a small bin held their dirty laundry and a bench even doubled as a litter box for their cats. In the kitchen beside the bench, she opened a cabinet up to reveal their fridge and pantry, hopping right over a few steps to grab some water from their sink. The couple revealed they practically live in luxury with a full oven and a pit couch, a full bed, and even a walkable solar panel on the roof. People were shocked by the tour and took to the comments to share their awe at the place. “I love that it looks neat, streamlined so it won’t feel visually cluttered & stressing. Excellent design & aesthetics,” said one commenter. “Incredible efficient design, so impressed!” said another. Others shared concerns about living in a van with two cats: “Are you ever scared of other animals getting them?” asked one viewer. Scarlet answered honestly: “We keep a close eye on them but it’s always a concern so we have to be extra careful!” she said.

- Celebrity Antiques Road Trip’s full line-up revealed – including EastEnders legends, Strictly faves and Loose Womenon October 2, 2023 at 11:01 pm
CELEBRITIES are ready to hit the road for the latest season of the Antiques Road Trip, and fans will be shocked by some of the participants. The twelfth series of the hit BBC show is coming back to screens next week, and viewers can expect to be entertained by Love Island stars and Strictly dancers alike. Fans can expect to see a lot of familiar faces on Celebrity Antiques Road Trip Gemma Collins has already been announced as one of the stars who will be on the show The line up features even more surprising guests The Sun previously revealed that TOWIE’s very own Gemma Collins is one of the famous faces that will be taking part in the show. She is pairing up with Radio 1 presenter and DJ Melvin Odoom to trawl through antique fairs in the hope of making some more dosh for second hand items. Another surprising couple making an appearance on the celebrity special are Love Island winners Davide and Ekin-Su. The pair will be going head-to-head as they swap the villa for valuations, competing with each other to nab the most expensive antiques. He joked about their “healthy competition”, saying: “It was such a pleasure to be part of Celebrity Antiques Road Trip – from the nostalgic feeling of putting myself into an antique car, through to the fun side of buying and selling antiques. “There was healthy competition between Ekin and I, and we had lots of fun as we supported each other through the experience. I learned a lot about antiques and how appearances can be deceiving; something may look like it could be worth a lot, but it may just be more sentimental value.” Joining them in the all star line up is Strictly Come Dancing pro Amy Dowden, former contestant Sara Davies, and 1980s popstar pals Samantha Fox and Sinitta. Sinitta joked that she felt like “pop music’s answer to Thelma and Louise” while driving through country lanes in the vintage car.

- Jeremy Hunt needs to put more money in Sun readers’ pockets — and soonon October 2, 2023 at 11:01 pm
Weed out woke LARGE parts of our supposedly “best in the world” civil service are idle, partisan and disgracefully obstructive to Tory policies millions support. Chancellor Jeremy Hunt was right yesterday to call out the vast bloat in this ever-expanding penpusher army. AFPJeremy Hunt needs to put more money in Sun readers’ pockets — and soon[/caption] We just hope his remedy works. Whitehall’s wasteful overmanning is never more obvious than in its legions of well-paid “diversity and inclusion” staff, their very existence a woke exercise in box-ticking and job creation which does nothing to improve the running of the country. Mr Hunt wants them whittled down one by one as he reduces civil service numbers to pre-Covid levels. Fine. Except if they are that dispensable, and they are, why not save taxpayers a fortune instantly by culling the lot? Would anyone notice? We liked, meanwhile, Mr Hunt’s optimism about our revised and much improved economic figures and his sound noises on getting tax down. Likewise his dismissal of doom-mongers claiming high taxes are with us for good. But he does sometimes speak as if he hasn’t realised he is Chancellor. The highest tax burden since the war is his to reduce. And while his minions may have convinced him that doing so now would fuel inflation just as he is regaining control over it he will have to grasp the nettle before long. He needs to put more money in Sun readers’ pockets — and soon. Water torture WATER bills are high enough. The service is often appalling. So the utility giants’ proposal to hike households’ costs yet further to build reservoirs, fix leaks and stop polluting our rivers is obscene. We have a right to expect those already. Water firms make incredible profits and pay executives jaw-dropping sums. The head of failing Thames Water will get £1.6million this year — and that’s without a bonus she gave up. The regulator Ofwat now has to “forensically scrutinise” their investment plans. Let us remind it of its first duty, “to protect the interests of consumers”. That will not be done by allowing us to be fleeced for another £84 a year to bail out an industry’s greed and incompetence. Chalk one up IT is blatantly unjust that killer fathers can retain control from jail over children they robbed of their mothers. They can bar them from getting passports or make decisions on schooling. So we are delighted Justice Secretary Alex Chalk is putting that right by backing our campaign for a Jade’s Law and enacting it. A win for The Sun, and more importantly for kids who have suffered enough.
- Parents who kill a partner will be stopped from having control over children’s liveson October 2, 2023 at 11:01 pm
PARENTS who kill a partner will be stopped from having control over their shared children’s lives — in a huge victory for The Sun. They will be stripped of the right to choose which schools their offspring go to and even if they can have a passport, as ministers bring in Jade’s Law. WNSJade Ward was murdered by ex husband Russell Marsh, who had a sinister hold over her family from behind bars[/caption] Justice Secretary Alex Chalk said these killers had caused enough harm, as he moved to close the legal loophole. The Sun’s campaign was inspired by the case of Jade Ward, 27, who was murdered by estranged partner Russell Marsh in 2021. He was sentenced to life but carried on holding parental rights over their four children. He is still able to access the boys’ medical records, school reports and can even stop them from going on holiday. Mr Chalk said: “Thanks to the passionate campaigning of Jade’s family, and The Sun, we are creating an automatic suspension of parental responsibility from a person who is convicted of killing a person with whom they share parental rights.” He will outline the plans during his speech at the Conservative Party conference in Manchester tomorrow. The measures will be part of the Victims and Prisoners Bill, which also gives judges powers to make offenders attend court for their sentencing. 'CHILDREN COME FIRST' By Alex Chalk NO longer will fathers who kill the mothers of their children be able to expect to retain their rights over those children. They have already done enough damage, and will now be stopped from doing any more. This is about protecting children. I know that Sun readers will be as shocked as I was to hear about the Wards’ case. No family should have to go through what Jade’s family have. We are putting a stop to it — and putting families, and children, first.
- EastEnders’ Michelle Collins slammed by Strictly fans as she wades into ‘unfair’ fix rowon October 2, 2023 at 11:00 pm
EASTENDERS’ Michelle Collins was slammed by Strictly Come Dancing fans after she shares her thoughts on the show’s ‘fix’ row. The actress said it “wasn’t fair” that Layton Williams was taking part on the show due to his professional dancing background. Michelle Collins has said it’s not fair that Layton Williams is on Strictly Come Dancing She shared her opinion in the comment section of a clip of Layton dancing with Nikita Kuzmin on the programme. “Sorry, but he is a professional dancer it’s not fair ! I love him but he’s great already,” she wrote. However, not everyone was impressed with her comment. “he’s phenomenal!!!! His dancing background means nothing! He has no experience with any of these dances,” one wrote. “He’s learning them from scratch like everyone else. People go on singing shows having had lessons and training, that doesn’t give them a head start from everyone else, they all have to go through the same process. I hope he wins, he’s just amazing,” they added. “It would be boring with all les Dennis’s… Yeah he’s from a dancing background however has had to learn a new way of dancing,” a second wrote. “my ex was in Matthew Bournes Swan Lake and teaches degree level dance including musical theatre. We went ballroom dancing for a year and he was useless and much worse than me. @laytonwilliams you are fabulous and I don’t get why people don’t understand that it’s different,” a third said. Layton, who has starred in West End musicals, ruffled feathers from the first week after he and Nikita performed a Samba. “He’s a west end dancer since 12!!! He’s unbelievably good, played billy eliiott and MJ in thriller, possibly better than the pro’s but ticks every box….” one wrote at the time. “The Poor other contestants like 78 year old angela are wasting there precious time to this box ticking bull s**** agenda,” they added. “Not fair, he’s actually a dancer,” a third chimed. “How is Layton Williams allowed to be on Strictly? He’s a professional dancer. Played the lead in Billy Elliott and Michael Jackson. Not fair,” a fourth added. “Get Layton Williams off @bbcstrictly he’s a professional dancer who has been at theatre school since he was 14 and performed in the West End, what a con. #strictly” Although some defended Layton and Nikita, arguing: “Do the people whinging about Angela Rippon and Layton Williams on #StrictlyComeDancing having dance experience also complain to Tipping Point saying some of their contestants have used coin pusher machines before too?” Layton first followed his performing arts talent when he studied street dance and drama at Carol Godby’s Theatre workshop in Bury. He has also studied ballet at Centre Pointe, Manchester. Layton was then awarded a scholarship to Sylvia Young Theatre School in Marylebone, London and stayed there until 2008. He attended Broad Oak High School in Bury, and then attended the Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts. Other recent stage credits include Rent, Hairspray The Musical and The Car Man. Last year, the show was embroiled in a fix scandal as eventual winner Hamza Yassin’s dancing past was revealed. X Factor singer Fleur East – who also had dancing skills prior to her stint last series – was also hit with fix claims. The Sun has gone to the BBC for comment. Layton has starred in Billy Elliot and has studied performing arts
- Neighbour parked on MY drive so I got a doorbell cam to catch her… but what I saw on tape was better than I’d hopedon October 2, 2023 at 11:00 pm
AN UNHAPPY resident got more than they bargained for after installing a doorbell camera to catch their nightmare neighbour parking on their drive. A video uploaded to TikTok shows the moment a woman is caught parking on her neighbour’s drive after being told to leave her car elsewhere. TIKTOK: @Divine_mind-888A homeowner installed a doorbell camera to catch the nightmare neighbour who keeps parking on their drive[/caption] TIKTOK: @Divine_mind-888The culprit can be seen walking past the front door after parking on the drive[/caption] The person who caught the footage had clearly had enough of this person disrespecting their property and decided it was time to take action. And by installing the doorbell cam, they got exactly what they were hoping for. The footage captured by the doorbell cam shows the culprit walking past the front door after parking her car on her neighbour’s driveway. However, she then circles back after realising she has been caught on film and walks up to the door. It appears as though she launches a verbal attack at the person who caught her red handed – although this has been muted in the video. Her face has also been covered with a cat emoji to disclose her identity. TikTok user @Divine_mind-888 added a caption that said: “So I caught the next door neighbour parking in my drive way – she didn’t know I have a doorbell camera until now.” As the woman approaches the camera, a second caption reads: “They were told not to park in my driveway, so I installed my doorcam”. The 33-second clip sparked outrage from viewers in the comments section, who sympathised with the owner of the house. One person said: “Why does she think it’s OK to park in your driveway? Where are you when this is happening?” Another added: “She’s been told not to park there. Time to call tow truck.” A third commented: “I wouldn’t say anything just wait until she went inside and called the tow truck. Surprise. Would be watching for her to come back out.” The incident is just the latest in a long line of neighbour feuds and plenty of others have been caught via doorbell cams. That includes this woman being caught stealing her neighbour’s parcel from right outside her front door. A much more terrifying incident shows one nightmare neighbour setting fire to a fuse box in an early morning attack – which thankfully didn’t catch light.

- Ultra-rare 90s kids’ toy is now worth £150 – do you have one collecting dust in your attic?on October 2, 2023 at 10:50 pm
AN ultra-rare 90s kids toy thousands of Brits have collecting dust in their attics could be worth a fortune. A 1996 Polly Pocket Sweet Treat Shoppe has been listed on eBay – and bids are already hitting £148. EBayAn ultra-rare 90s kids toy thousands of Brits have hiding in their attics could be worth a fortune[/caption] EBayA 1996 Polly Pocket Sweet Treat Shoppe has been listed on eBay – and bids are already hitting £148[/caption] So it’s worth old kids toys hidden away in your home to see if you’ve got any hiding away. The listing has so far hit 46 bids – and the auction will last until 11pm on Wednesday. The pocket-sized dolls originated at the end of the 1980s and became seriously popular amongst kids growing up in the 90s. The dolls were bought by Bluebird Toys in the late 80s and then toy giant Mattel in 1999. After that, the brand was redesigned and expanded with new accessories and characters – it even got its own TV series, before eventually dying down in the noughties. However, if you’ve got any of the original dolls, from the Bluebird Toy era, between 1989 and 1998, you could make a small fortune from selling them. The toys originally sold for around £10 in their heyday – but prices have soared thanks to a hunger for vintage toys. But, there is a catch. Only toys left in their original packaging will rake in the big bucks – with some selling online for £8,000. You might want to start a childhood bedroom hunt today – eBay even have a guide to help those who want to buy the vintage dolls. Tips on auctioning your Polly Pockets According to the eBay guide, there are a few things to consider when it comes to listing your vintage Polly Pocket (and checking if it's valuable) Know their age – you need to find out if they were made before 1998, by Bluebird Toys, or after by Mattel – the earlier toys are the more valuable Check the hinges – dolls with their original hinges intact are more valuable Check how much similar dolls have sold on eBay (under “sold listings”) Compare your dolls to oprevious listings – are yours in the same condition, are they still in the original packaging?

KATIE Price is reportedly ‘locked in a bitter feud’ with fiance Carl Woods over his jealously of Peter Andre. Former glamour model Katie, 45, was married to the Mysterious Girl singer for four years. Katie Price is reportedly ‘locked in a bitter feud’ with fiance Carl Woods over his jealously of Peter AndreGetty GettyFormer glamour model Katie, 45, was married to the Mysterious Girl singer for four years[/caption] The exes, who split in 2009, have two children together – Junior and Princess Andre. But Katie’s on and off man Carl is said to be irked as she ‘constantly references’ Peter, 50. An insider told OK! Magazine: “Katie’s relationships will never truly work because she’s always going to feel for Pete. She loves to talk about him, she can’t help it “She’s spoken about him in every relationship and compares them to Pete – it’s an ongoing problem. “It annoys Carl when she brings up Pete and it causes friction and arguments in their already rocky relationship. But Carl knows she’ll never truly get over Pete.” The source even went on to say Katie believes her and Pete “should still be together”. They continued: “Katie is never going to let go of him. She feels that letting him leave is the biggest mistake she ever made and doesn’t accept any responsibility for it. “As far as she’s concerned, they should still be together.” Meanwhile, Carl has desperately offered a £5k reward after his Range Rover was stolen. He took to Instagram to plead with followers on Sunday to help him track down the flashy vehicle which was last seen in Essex. “Stolen, my Range Rover has been stolen last night from Felsted, Dunmow,” he wrote. “£5,000 reward for the car back. If the car is seen anywhere please send to me. Share this post everywhere.” Woods went on to say the vehicle had his initials as a number plate when stolen which could make it easier to identify.
