Celeb in 5: Monday's best entertainment and gossip news.

1. The huge clues that suggests Ali Oetjen doesn’t end up with anyone on The Bachelorette.

Not again.

We’re weeks away from The Bachelorette finale and certain rumours are suggesting that Ali and her chosen bachelor have already split.

The crux of the rumour comes from the fact that the current Bachelorette frontrunners Charlie and Bill are not living up to expectations in real life. You see, Charlie Newling has been seen getting cosy with former Bachelor contestant Dasha Gaivoronski, while past, racist Facebook posts of Bill Goldsmith have re-surfaced and they do not show him in a good light. Woman’s Day also report that he’s been spotted with another woman in a Melbourne park.

Furthermore, a TV insider has told the publication that Charlie was the one who reached out to Dasha, confirming the pair have “hit it off right away”.

“Charlie reached out to Dasha on Instagram as he’d watched her on The Bachelor, and things progressed,” they said.

“They both love fitness and the outdoors, and they have boys of a similar age, so they hit it off right away!”

In the same article, a friend of Ali’s has also suggested that maybe the 32-year-old has been influenced by her Bachelor predecessor, Nick Cummins, and is prepared to also leave the competition sans partner.

“She was left shattered to find her two favourites were not the guys she thought they were, and she wasn’t going to be pressured by production to pick the wrong man, like she did in Paradise,” they told Woman’s Day.

“Since photos have surfaced of the boys moving on so quickly, Ali knows she made the right decision.”

So unless, a dark horse emerges in the last few weeks of the competition… Bachelorette fans be warned.

“You look empowered,” one woman commented.

“Wow it suits you so much,” another wrote.

The 26-year-old personal trainer married Olympian rower turned weightlifter Sam Loch earlier this year on Valentine’s Day after a three-month engagement.

The pair met in October after being introduced by a mutual friend. Two weeks later, Loch proposed while the former First Daughter was putting frozen peas in her freezer.

You see, on the weekend Keira posted a photo of herself enjoying some wine at a winery with some friends.

The winery was none other than Jarrod’s family winery, Toms Cap Vineyard.

Maybe Jarrod got over the fact Keira is an influencer and they’re back together?

Maybe Keira was just enjoying some free wines?

Or maybe – just maybe – she be doin’ an influence for Jarrod’s wines?

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle broke royal protocol by posing for a selfie with two 10-year-old New Zealand girls, Sophie Hubbard and Hope Watson on Sunday.

What incredible act warranted such a break in rules, you ask? Well, one of their mums asked.

Sophie, Hope and Jan Richardson – who was the girls’ guardian for the day – had been waiting very patiently in the crowd at Wellington’s National War Memorial for nine hours when the royal couple walked by.

Jan told The Sun at that point she “got blunt”.

“Meghan started to talk to them and I thought I’m just going to ask,” she said.
