The Spill: Thursday's best entertainment and gossip news.

1. “I was starving myself for years.” Bachelorette Angie Kent opens up about her two health conditions.

In an interview with Now To Love, this year’s Bachelorette, Angie Kent, reflected on why it was important for her to speak about her eating disorder on I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! 

“I think it’s so big to share any type of struggles that you have,” she said.

“I had a dreadful, dreadful eating disorder which has affected many different things with me now.”

The Gogglebox star believes having bulimia may have played a part in her two current health conditions.

“I have coeliac disease and endometriosis which I think is from having really bad bulimia and starving myself for years,” she said.

Angie hopes that by sharing her story, it will encourage others to talk about what they have been through.

“As soon as we get the conversation flowing, then we don’t have to be frightened anymore because none of us are perfect.

“We’ve all got stuff we want to talk about and yeah, just don’t change yourself, because there are going to be other little weirdos out there just like you… and just like me!”

2. The first eight ‘Survivor All-Stars’ castaways were just announced and we’re not sure who we’re more excited about.

Prepare your torches, for we have some serious Survivor news: the first eight castaways who will appear on Survivor All-Stars have been announced.

Among them? The Golden God himself, David Genat.

After being blindsided and leaving with an idol in his hand last season, we can expect David to come back as cunning as ever.

The returning villain will be joined by season three’s Mat Rogers, who also managed to leave with an idol.

Phoebe Timmins and Felicity Eggington from the 2016 season of Survivor are also coming back and will join familiar faces Mark ‘Tarzan’ Herlaar, Nick Iadanza, Henry Nicholson and Brooke Jowett, when the show airs next year.

While we’re excited to see some of our favourites return, sadly Luke Toki will not be among them.

But that doesn’t mean he won’t be returning to our screens. The King of the Jungle will be hosting his very own online show after Survivor All Stars airs.

3. “Married at 27, divorced at 30.” The Bachelorette’s Carlin has been married before, and now he knows who he is and what he wants.

This season’s Bachelorette front-runner Carlin, has opened up on Instagram about his past, and of course, we like him even more now.


Getting honest with his many followers, the reality TV contestant says he was previously married and divorced, but knows there’s ‘a light at the end of the tunnel’ (love with Angie, hopefully?).

He captions the post, “Influencer? Haha what are you influencing?… I know I ain’t influencing shit… Encourager, I want to be that. Real. Raw. Relatable. Married at 27, divorced at 30.

“I’m not “successful” but I am living a full life knowing I don’t have to please anyone and I know who I am and what I want. I was insecure, a people pleaser and let too many people take advantage of my caring nature.

“Definitely don’t look up to me… but hopefully I can encourage someone who needs to hear that life can be REAL shit, however there’s always a light at the end of the tunnel and if you persevere hardship, real character growth is waiting on the other side.”

So, not only is he bloody gorgeous, he is honest and sweet too. *Australia melts*.

We can see why Bachelorette Angie is already quite keen on Carlin.

4. Prince Harry just released footage of himself greeting Ed Sheeran and their meeting is everything.

Prince Harry just released a short Instagram video of himself meeting Ed Sheeran and to be completely honest, it’s the best 10 seconds of footage we’ve seen all week.

In an unexpected collaboration, the Duke of Sussex and the ‘Shape of You’ singer have teamed up as a part of a campaign for World Mental Health Day.

In the short clip, Ed arrives and rings the doorbell, which plays a ‘God Save The Queen’ tune. Yep… classic.

“Hey mate, nice to see you,” Harry says after opening the door. “It’s like looking in the mirror.”

After shaking hands, Ed asks Harry if he can bring a camera into the home, before the pair head inside together.

It’s believed Ed and Harry have been working together to mark World Mental Health Day.

Earlier this year, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge narrated a television advertisement called ‘Every Mind Matters’, aimed at creating awareness for mental health.

5. Jock Zonfrillo, Melissa Leong and Andy Allen are your brand new MasterChef judges for 2020.

Well, our new MasterChef judges have landed.


Jock Zonfrillo, Melissa Leong and Andy Allen will be taking the reigns of the long-running Australian reality TV staple in 2020.

George Calombaris, Matt Preston and Gary Mehigan walked away from the franchise in July this year due to failed negotiations over money and ever since we’ve all been hanging off the rumour from Who that Maggie Beer, Curtis Stone and Poh Ling Yeow were taking over.

Plot freakin’ twist.


No offence to Jock, Melissa or Andy… but we need a refresher on who you are pls before the kick-off of season 12.

Let’s start with Jock Zonfrillo – he’s a Scottish celebrity chef and TV presenter based here in Oz. He owns the popular Restaurant Orana in Adelaide which won Restaurant of the Year in 2018 by both Gourmet Traveller and The Australian.

He’s also the founder of The Orana Foundation which is a not-for-profit that aims to preserve the cooking techniques of The First Australians.
