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

1. Oh. The Bachelor Matt Agnew’s red velvet blazer looks very… familiar.

Well. This is awkward.

You see, The Bachelor looks very glamorous with all it’s helicopter dates and fancy cocktail parties. The contestants are even provided a stylist to help them dress for each rose ceremony.

However, some viewers with spectacular memory have pointed out that the stylists continue to recycle clothes from old seasons.

Including, this maroon velvet jacket, worn most recently by Matt Agnew, but also by previous The Bachelorette contestants Jake Ellis and Blake Colman.

Oh. And it was also worn by Married At First Sight groom Dino Hira in his official promo shots.

“That jacket haunts me,” Jake Ellis commented on the photo. Us too, Jake, us too.

In case you were wondering, the jacket is from Politix, and will cost you a cool $329.

It’s not the first time the same clothes have been spotted through the seasons. In 2016, Keira Maguire was seen wearing a dress previously worn by Sam Frost when she was the bachelorette, and Charmaine De Pasquale who was on Sam Wood’s season.

2. Bindi Irwin has shared that her brother Robert will walk her down the aisle.

Last month, Bindi Irwin announced the exciting news that her partner of six years, Chandler Powell, proposed on her 21st birthday at Australia Zoo.

On Saturday, the bride-to-be posted a heartfelt tribute on her Instagram to her late father Steve Irwin, sharing that her brother Robert will walk her down the aisle.

“Dad, You would be so incredibly proud of Robert,” she began her caption.

“He has been such an amazing support during this beautiful new life chapter. I know you’d be beaming with pride when the time comes that he walks me down the aisle.”

She continued: “I wish you could be here for these moments, but I know that your spirit lives on in us.”

It’s not the first time the former Dancing With The Stars winner has spoken about her father and brother since the engagement.

“I think that for me, it’ll be really important that Robert walks me down the aisle,” Bindi recently told Entertainment Tonight. “That’s something that I really want to do.”

“I’m always so grateful that Robert is there, and he has been such a big part of my life and he’s always stepped up and been the one to give me a hug when I need it and encourage me forward in life.

3. The Hills: New Beginnings couple Brody Jenner and Kaitlynn Carter have split.

Today we learnt that the marriage between reality TV couple Brody Jenner and Kaitlynn Carter is no more, not that it was legally official to begin with.

While their representatives, Scott Newman and Lindsay Maguire have confirmed their split to the press, US media sources like People and Page Six are reporting their elaborate 2018 Bali wedding was just for show, with Jenner and Carter failing to make their nuptials “official” upon their return.

Speaking to People, an unnamed source said appearing on The Hills reboot, The Hills: New Beginnings stressed their already fragile relationship.

“Brody and Kaitlynn have had issues for years. It is no secret amongst those who knew them. And the show was not good for them,” they said.

“It got so bad that Kaitlynn had actually moved out before they started filming, but then moved back in. Doing The Hills magnified a lot of things in their marriage. And it became clear that it wasn’t going to work. They both knew it.”

According to Page Six, Carter is already seeing someone else.

4. Apparently Kristen Stewart can speak to ghosts and wait, what?

Twilight actress, Kristen Stewart has just told Vanity Fair that she talks to ghosts.

Indeed.

Given the supernatural elements of her past projects, like the Twilight saga and Personal Shopper, journalist Durga Chew-Bose asked the 29-year-old actress point blank whether she believed in ghosts, and she responded in the affirmative.

“I talk to them,” responded Stewart.

“If I’m in a weird, small town, making a movie, and I’m in a strange apartment, I will literally be like, ‘No, please, I cannot deal. Anyone else, but it cannot be me.’

“Who knows what ghosts are, but there is an energy that I’m really sensitive to. Not just with ghosts, but with people. People stain rooms all the time.”

Spooky stuff.

Just over a month on from the arrival of her daughter Marlie-Mae Rose, The Bachelor star Laura Byrne has opened up about her birth story.

Laura, who won Matty J’s heart on the fifth season of The Bachelor in 2017, and Brittany Hockley, who made the top two in Nick Cummins’ season last year before he infamously chose no one, have just joined forces to produce a new podcast: Life Uncut.

In the second episode of the new podcast, Brittany interviewed Laura about what it was like being induced when her baby was two weeks overdue.

“They don’t call it labour for no reason – it is definitely very painful,” Laura said, describing her birth experience.

“Although everyone does have a very different pain threshold. I was induced and I think if you go into spontaneous labour, it’s a very different experience. It was right at the brink of my pain threshold,” she added.

“I originally wanted to do a natural birth but I ended up having to opt for an epidural because I couldn’t manage my pain expectations.”

After getting an epidural, Laura explained that the change in her pain levels was like “night and day”.
