Kim Kardashian’s hilarious tweet about Katie Price and Peter Andre resurfaces

Kim Kardashian’s 11-year-old tweet gushing about Katie Price and Peter Andre has resurfaced online.

Back in 2009 Kim found herself boarding the same fight as the then power couple and couldn’t contain her excitement.

Kim, now 40, was a reality TV novice at the time, with Keeping Up With the Kardashians only its second season.

While Katie and Peter were considered reality TV royalty, having met on I’m A Celebrity… Get Met Out of Here! and gone on to document their marriage, kids and all the moments in between for the cameras.

2009 Kim was thrilled to see Peter and Katie in the flesh

The couple split months after Katie saw them

Recalling that simpler time, one meme account posted today: “I won’t lie to you, there’s never a day that goes by that I don’t think about this tweet that Kim sent in 2009.”

The message sent by Kim, dated April 5 2009, read: “Omg Katie Price aka Jordan and her husband Peter are on my flight home from NYC!”

Fans thought it was bizarre that Kim could be starstruck by the husband and wife duo.

Sadly, Kim’s sighting of the couple together was likely to have been one of their last happy times together as they split the very same year.

While Kim may have been taking tips from the pair as she married herself two years later – filming her big white wedding to basketball star Kris Humphries for her reality series Keeping Up With The Kardshians.

The lavish event was spread over two episodes and holds the title of the most watched moment of KUWTK ever – with 10.5million viewers tuning in to what the pair say ‘I do.’

Despite all the hype, Kim and Kris went on to divorce just 72 days later.

However, it wasn’t all bad news as the pair were reported to have earned £17million from all the publicity surrounding their nuptials.

According to reports in the US, Kim could now be navigating her third marriage split amid allegations she and Kanye West have gone their separate ways.

Kim set tongues wagging over on Instagram as she was pictured without her wedding ring in her latest snap promoting SKIMS.

A source for the E! network, the broadcasting home to Keeping Up With the Kardashians, claimed last week that Kim understood her marriage to the rapper is over.

“They’ve seen each other for the sake of the kids but have been living separately,” the source said. “Kim knows the marriage is over. She’s known for a while.

“It’s not about the marriage anymore, she’ll always care for Kanye but it’s over between them. Kim is only focused on what’s best for the kids. It’s a tough decision for her and she’s figuring it out,” they suggested.

They added that the whole family has given Betty the ’emotional and physical support she needs.’

A representative for Scarlett declined to comment when approached by MailOnline for comment.  

Betty found fame with Scarlett, her younger sister Ava, 14, and their father Mark when they were all castmembers on Gogglebox.

The family left the Channel 4 show in 2016 after Scarlett appeared on, and later won, I’m A Celebrity. She went on to co-host Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway and I’m A Celebrity’s Extra Camp.

At the time, Scarlett was reportedly set to rake in millions and in October 2020 it was claimed that the star paid herself a ‘£240,000 dividend’.

During her time on I’m A Celebrity, Scarlett revealed that she had been able to pay off her parents’ mortgage. 

She told her fellow campmates: ‘I paid off the mortgage on my mum and dad’s house for them.

‘I just wrote them a letter and said, thanks for being mint, and sorry for leaving fake tan all over the house, and then I put a cheque in for them.’

More recently, in August, Scarlett surprised her mother Betty with a family get together for her 50th birthday.

The TV presenter went all out for her mother’s special day with the help of her father Mark and her younger sister Ava, 14.

The 31-year-old TV personality has seen her career take off since appearing in the jungle for I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! and she is currently a team captain on Keith Lemon’s anarchic quiz, Celebrity Juice.

This has meant that opportunities to be with Charlie have become limited with the Covid restrictions pretty much putting paid to them getting to spend any time together.

Their fling lasted three months and a source told The Sun that Emily’s projects, which also included her own comedy show on ITV2, were the main reason for the pair splitting.

The source said: “Emily’s work schedule has been busy lately and she’s had to really focus on making that work.

“She was really into Charlie, who is obviously very handsome. and there was a good spark there, but it’s definitely over.”

Emily is reportedly hoping “the door remains open” for a possible future reprise of the relationship but it is just impossible at the moment.”

Emily Atack found her work schedule too much for love

Charlie Edwards was nine years younger than Emily

Emily and Charlie has reportedly been dating since October last year, when thy were spotted looking cosy while on a night out in London.

Charlie is believed to have left for a holiday in Dubai before the third national lockdown prevented him from jetting off.

This is the second time that Emily has suffered lockdown love heartbreak after trying virtual dates last year.

She found it difficult to make a connection as she missed the physical meet up of a date.

Emily said: “I need the tactile vibes. I’ve got to have the physical connection.

“I spoke to a couple of pleasant people but Zoom dating ain’t for me.”

Inside Ant McPartlin and Anne-Marie Corbett’s love story as they get engaged

Ant McPartlin and girlfriend Anne-Marie Corbett have started 2021 with a bang by announcing they are engaged.

The much-loved I’m A Celebrity presenter, 45, popped the question on Christmas Eve – and she wasted no time in saying yes.

Ant and Anne-Marie are making things official after almost three years together and fans can’t wait to hear about their wedding plans.

Well, with it being a week since he popped the question they have had plenty of thinking time!

She had been working as a personal assistant to the star and his then wife Lisa Armstrong before the couple announced plans to divorce in January 2018.

Ant is engaged to Anne-Marie after his romantic Christmas Eve proposal

Ant’s 11-year marriage to the make-up artist crumbled three years ago as they told the world it was all over between them.

Anne-Marie split from husband Scott in October 2017 and they share two daughters together.

Scott kept a cute family photo on his twitter profile for a year as a poignant reminder of their life together.

His estranged wife Lisa learned about the relationship in the newspapers, reports claim

But his former wife had moved on – and was soon to move in with the TV star.

Ant and Anne-Marie went public with their romance in June 2018 after they were spotted enjoying a cosy trip to Harrods together.

But his estranged wife Lisa learned about the relationship in the newspapers, reports suggested.

The Sun claimed the pair grew “closer” in the wake of Ant’s drink-driving arrest and subsequent return to rehab in March 2018.

It was claimed Anne-Marie was Ant’s “rock” throughout the difficult time.

A source told the newspaper: “‘He’s had a tough time of it.

“But Anne-Marie has put a smile back on his face again. She has been his rock.”

They both hope their second marriage is their last

Smitten Anne-Marie and Ant now can’t bare to be apart – and a very big year could be ahead for the pair.

A spokesman confirmed the engagement: “Ant and Amzie are delighted to announce their engagement.

“The proposal took place on Christmas Eve at home in a very romantic setting.”

Scarlett Moffatt confesses she was at her ‘lowest’ when she was a size 6

Scarlett Moffatt confessed to her fans that she was secretly as her “lowest” when she was a size 6.

The former Gogglebox star and I’m A Celebrity champion has famously fluctuated with her weight over the years.

And she’s now told fans that she was actually the unhappiest she’s ever been when she was at her skinniest.

The 30-year-old made the candid confession as she took part in a question and answer session with her fans on Instagram.

After encouraging her followers to request pictures, someone asked her to share a snap of the moment “when people didn’t no u was at your lowest”.

Scarlett says she was at her lowest when she was a size 6

Scarlett responded with a picture of herself in a skimpy black swimming costume, taken when she was a size 6.

Posing up in the mirror, Scarlett’s face was blank and she didn’t look happy at all.

Thankfully, these days her snaps show her a lot smilier and more content.

When asked to share her “proudest moment”, she shared a picture of herself in her graduation cap and gown as she officially finished university.

She’s so much happier now

Thankfully she’s always so smiley these days

She wrote: “My graduation. I changed courses half way through my first year I started in dance but I realised it wasn’t the route I wanted to go down. I realised sometimes you have to let go of an idea to fulfil your dreams sometimes.”

She also shared a funny meme of herself pulling three wild facial expressions during her stint in I’m A Celebrity, a cute snap of her dog Bonnie in a pink tutu, one of her competing in a dance competition and the first ever picture of herself and boyfriend Scott Dobinson.

Scarlett also hinted at her plans for the future with her beau as she was asked to share a picture that showed her “ideal engagement”.

She dropped some marriage hints for boyfriend Scott Dobinson

The star posted a cute selfie of herself and Scott, writing: “Anything as long as it’s this one @scottdobby”.

And when asked to show her “favourite holiday”, she posted a snap of herself in Las Vegas, hinting: “Always Vegas I always say to @scottdobby I’d love to get married there!!”

Her “happiest” moment was leaving the I’m A Celeb jungle as Queen and the moment she thought she could only “dream” of saw her pose up with hunky actor Tom Hardy.

I’m A Celeb’s Giovanna Fletcher enjoys cosy Christmas with husband Tom and kids

Giovanna Fletcher and her husband McFly’s Tom Fletcher have marked Christmas Day with a host of cosy celebrations alongside their three young sons.

The I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! winner’s stunning festive spread is a far cry from the freezing cold Gwrych castle that she left just three weeks earlier.

The 35-year-old television star and her husband have pulled out all the stops to make sure the family have a very special day with Buzz, Buddy and Max, despite being stuck in Tier 4 lockdown.

As well as opening lots of lavish presents from Santa, the family have been enjoying some cosy time playing with toys and munching on Christmas treats.

Taking to social media, the happy couple cosied up in their matching Christmas pyjamas.

“Clashing into Christmas,” Tom captioned it.

Cosy Christmas snuggles

At Christmas, it was peeking up the chimney to look for Santa, games on the boys’ new Nintendo Switch, and festive singalongs.

In recent weeks, Giovanna and Tom have been gearing up for the festive season and decorating their home with lots of stunning decorations.

Although Tom admitted he’d broken his Christmas promise to Gi by decorating before she was back – judging by their cozy displays since, Gi didn’t mind too much.

Giovanna was actually stunned to return from I’m A Celebrity to a gorgeously decorated home, thanks to Tom and the boys.

The family centrepiece is an enormous tree in their hallway that is adorned with lots of colourful baubles as well as glittering golden lights.

The proud mum also recently shared a photograph of the front of their home that features a door framed with even more colourful baubles.

Is Santa here yet?

The boys will love their new Nintendo Switch

Sharing a picture of her husband at the time, Giovanna had nothing but praise for Tom’s decorating efforts.

“Morning coffee in his happy place! And yes, @tomfletcher had put all the Christmas decorations up by the time I got back… hardly surprising as this man is a huge lover of the festive season. I LOVE THEM!!! Xxx,” she wrote.

He had even hung Giovanna’s I’m A Celebrity crown in the centre of the door to add as a wreath to the festive decorations.

While the decorations have been in place for quite some weeks, it hasn’t stopped Giovanna feeling a little stressed as she tried to get all the festive plans in place.

Tom has used the I’m A Celeb crown as a Christmas wreath

“Like most people, I was possibly getting a little stressed at the thought of Christmas shopping this year. Mostly, because I’ve done none and time is running away from me,” she said just over a week before Christmas.

Despite the last minute panic, Giovanna credited Ocado with helping her stock up on all the much-needed supplies as well as some extra Christmas gifts.

“Now that’s done I can get on with having some much needed fun with the boys, after all – that’s what Christmas is all about!” she penned alongside the post.

Giovanna Fletcher was crowned Queen of the Castle, Jordan North finished runner-up and Vernon Kay third

Giovanna and Tom are one of millions of families that have been affected by the latest Tier 4 restrictions, meaning their Christmas plans were thrown up in the air.

Despite the recent setback, it hasn’t stopped the family fully embracing the festive cheer and coming together for a gorgeous day.

“11 and a half years of love, lots of cuddles and walks (Which was Lulus favourite thing to do) Forever in mine, Sandra’s and Barney’s hearts.”

It comes after Harry opened up about being shaken up when his dog Barney nearly died after eating Christmas cake last year.

Lulu died after 11 and a half years

The football manager was struck with fear when he discovered Barney had devoured a whole Christmas cake.

The Christmas cake was complete with all the trimmings, including currants which are poisonous to pooches.

In a new interview, Harry urged fellow dog owners to be careful during the Christmas season.

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here’s champion shared some loving words about his pooch in a fitting tribute

He told The Sun : “Barney’s a bit of a boy, so Barney’s ate the Christmas cake. So we take him to the vet, and they have to pump its stomach, because currants, that would kill them, they would die.

“It would have killed him. So poor Lulu, who hasn’t eaten any, they pumped her stomach just in case she’d ate some, and no one knew, and she hasn’t even done nothing wrong really, but she had to suffer as well.

Harry told fans his “lovely” Lula had died on Sunday morning

“A dog is not only for Christmas.

Victoria Derbyshire said violent dad poured hot soup on her when she was a teen

Victoria Derbyshire has spoken about the violent abuse she suffered at the hands of her father when she was a teenager.

The 52-year-old broadcaster, who delighted fans during her turn on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!, has revealed details of some of the abuse she had to endure when growing up.

After her parents split, Victoria never saw her father again and declined the opportunity to pay her last respects at his funeral, after he died following a stroke during the first lockdown at the beginning of the year.

Speaking to The Times, Victoria recalled how her dad would pour hot soup over her while in a rage, when she was a teenager.

She said the incident left her with “complete contempt” for him and she said that the best way of coping was by “not reacting” to her his outbursts.

Victoria Derbyshire has spoken about domestic violence

Victoria said: “Once I was sitting eating my tea – tomato soup – in my school uniform. He was shouting at me across the kitchen table.

“I looked up and I didn’t say anything. But I was thinking, ‘I have complete contempt for you.’ And he could see it in my eyes.

“So he leant across the table and tipped the hot soup all over my school uniform. My way of dealing with that was not to react. Don’t scream. Don’t cry.”

Victoria also opened about her abusive childhood during a recent episode of BBC’s Panorama, as she explored domestic violence.

She said that her “whole body” would “tense” every time she heard her father’s key in the door.

Victoria Derbyshire breaks down in tears as she recalls the horror of her childhood in Rochdale at hands of her abusive dad

Victoria said that he would look to provoke an argument so that he could turn to violence against her – often hitting her with a belt or slapping her on the head.

She said that shares sympathy with those who are “trapped” in the same house as their abuser and that she would escape the attentions of her father by staying at her friend’s house.

Victoria said: “When the prime minister told us all to stay at home because of coronavirus, one of my first thoughts was for those living in abusive households.

“Women, men and children, essentially trapped, forced to stay inside week after week – what would happen to them?”

During the Panorama documentary, Victoria returned to the house in Littleborough, Rochdale, where she grew up, for the first time in 35 years.

Victoria Derbyshire reveals her violent dad once poured hot soup over her when she was a teen

She said on the show: “Like I could really cry, I could really cry. Pathetic.

“So this is the house where I grew up. It’s so weird, I haven’t been here for so long and I’ve got some really happy memories of being there, but there were some really difficult times because my father was violent.

“You know, this was the 70s and 80s. No one had heard the phrase ‘domestic abuse’. No one knew what it meant, what it was or what it involved.

“If he was in the house we were on eggshells all the time. I remember once he locked my mum in their bedroom and he was hitting her and there was loads of noise and I was scared.”

Victoria added: “So I ran from here down to the police station which is maybe a mile. I was 12 or 13. I was so scared I just ran to the police stations and said ‘my dad’s hitting my mum, please can you come.'”

*If you are a victim of domestic abuse, call Refuge’s freephone, 24-hour National Domestic Abuse Helpline on 0808 2000 247.

Tess Daly ‘sobbed uncontrollably’ watching Vernon Kay on I’m A Celebrity

Emotional Tess Daly says she couldn’t fight back the tears watching her husband Vernon Kay suffer on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!.

The showbiz couple didn’t see each other for more than five weeks – and that lack of contact really hit home for the Strictly Come Dancing presenter.

But she says the long time apart made them appreciate each other more than ever before.

Vernon met his future wife back in 2001 and they have been married for 17 years.

He talked about her all the time in the Castle, but it was when Vernon was struggling that made Tess, 51, break down herself.

“Every time he welled up on the TV, I would find myself welling up as well,” she told The Sun.

Vernon made wife Tess cry in the castle – but only because she missed him so much

“I felt like I was going through it with him.

“I mean I was fed and never cold – but he slept on the floor for two and a half weeks, which the edit didn’t show, because he didn’t fit in the beds.

“So whenever he welled up, I felt like I was going through it with him.”

The 46-year-old former Family Fortunes host came third in this year’s I’m A Celebrity.

He gushed over his doting wife in a cute social media post on Thursday as the couple prepare for Christmas.

Vernon struggled at times on the ITV show

Vernon shared a stunning picture of the couple as they enjoyed a ‘special’ date night

The dad of two shared the snap with his 631,000 Instagram followers and beamed from ear to ear while Tess candidly looked away from the camera.

Alongside the cute black and while picture, Vernon joked that he was definitely not missing the basic meals that he had eaten in the camp at Gwrych Castle.

“Last nights date night….The joy of good, refuelling food and a jolly good catch up with the fam was very special!” he wrote.

“Didn’t miss rice and beans with fried rodent one bit!!!”

Vernon last week revealed that he had lost a whopping 2.5-stone weight while he starred on the ITV show.

Tess returns to host tonight’s Strictly Come Dancing final at 6pm on BBC1.
