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

1. Oh. It looks like Bachelorette fan fave Ciarran Stott will leave the mansion this week after a death in his family.

It’s no secret we love Ciarran, the whole damn nation loves Ciarran. Even Angie’s best friend and former Gogglebox co-star Yvie Jones loves Ciarran.

But alas, it looks like his time in The Bachelorette mansion could tragically be coming to an end this week.

Sources supposedly told New Idea that Ciarran decided to leave the mansion after he was told about his nan’s passing.

According to the publication, Ciarran’s dad wasn’t able to contact him at the time of his nan’s passing because he had lost Channel Ten’s contact details. Unfortunately, this meant Ciarran had missed his nan’s funeral.

An ‘inside source’ told New Idea that Ciarran didn’t want to leave but after a week, “he was over the whole thing.”

While nothing has been officially confirmed, we must admit we’ve had our suspicion that Ciarran would sadly be leaving the mansion.

Particularly, after Ciarran was spotted out with his ex-girlfriend and former Bachelor contestant, Renee Barrett.

Then the Daily Mail published paparazzi photos of Angie Kent’s final four bachelors last week. And Ciarran wasn’t among them.

Hopefully, we’ll get more answers when The Bachelorette resumes next Wednesday at 7.30pm on Channel Ten.

2. Turns out Love Island’s Cassie auditioned for The X Factor UK and let’s just say she didn’t wow the judges.

In an act of reality TV serendipity, we have video proof of Love Island Australia contestant, Cassie Lansdell, auditioning for The X Factor UK, and it’s everything we’ve wanted and more.

Six years ago, a 20-year-old Cassie and her friend Katrina auditioned for The X Factor dressed in matching blazers, button-ups, skull-print scarves, and bow ties. Explaining their duo name to the camera, they called themselves ‘Duplex,’ because they were literally a “duplicate of each other,” and frequently spoke in unison at the same time.

However, when they sang 'Call My Name' by Cheryl Cole, let's just say their performance failed to impress. Their singing was a little pitchy, and the unfortunate rap section didn't inspire enthusiasm from the judges.

"You really are one and the same person. You both can't sing. Really awful singing. Awful," said judge, and former Take That member, Gary Barlow.

"It wasn't nerves, it was just that you can't sing."

You can watch their audition below.

Luckily Cassie's second attempt at reality TV stardom has been a little more successful, and she's currently shacked up with Luke Packham, who is the identical twin of fellow contestant Josh Packham.

We wish them all the best.

3. "I don't look at myself as a bad boy." Married at First Sight's Dean Wells says editing meant we didn't see the 'real' him.

Last week, a former reality TV contestant won compensation after being portrayed as a "villain" and a "bully".


Nicole Prince, who appeared on Channel Seven’s renovation reality show House Rules in 2017, claimed that she had been traumatised psychologically following her appearance on the show.

And now, following the landmark ruling, it seems more and more reality TV stars are opening up about the impact of the 'villain' edit.

Speaking to the Daily Telegraphformer Married At First Sight star Dean Wells has claimed that he was "edited and manipulated" by producers to appear as a villain on the show.

"Married at First Sight gets edited and manipulated in a certain way, so the public didn't really get to see the real me," Dean said.

"They get to see a very manipulated and sensationalised version of what actually happened," he added.

"I like to think I'm a good person. I don't look at myself as a bad boy."

Following Nicole Prince's win, it's believed the ruling could now open a Pandora’s box for other reality TV contestants to seek compensation.

4. Just all the best bits of Chrissy Teigen and John Legend's Vanity Fair interview.

In a new interview for Vanity Fair, Chrissy Teigen and John Legend have opened up about everything from the impeachment of Donald Trump to their dwindling relationship with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.

Here's a recap of all the best bits from the new interview.

On their friendship with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West:


Although Chrissy and John have spent time with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West in the past, they're actually not the closest of friends.

"I’m not trying to disown Kanye because I still love him and love everything we’ve done together creatively. But we were never the closest of friends," John explained.

On Kim's visits to the White House, John added: "It’s a cheap win for [Trump]. But the people being granted clemency are real people with families. So even if the clemency is won through his celebrity-whore tendencies, it’s still helpful for that family and that person. At the same time, he’s locking kids in cages and he’s a terrible human being..."

On Trump's impeachment:

On the topic of President Trump's impeachment, John and Chrissy are both in strong agreement.

"I think there needs to be jail time for him, for the whole family," Chrissy said.

"I feel like he still gets away with everything if he gets out of his office. I know that his first tweet after he’s impeached will be, 'I didn’t want to be there anyway.'"

On how they started dating:

John and Chrissy began dating casually after a cameraman Chrissy worked with showed her photo to John.

At the time, Chrissy would scour gossip blogs, looking for intel or pictures of John.


"It got serious pretty quickly," John said.

"She just entertained the hell out of me, texting me. What people respond to in her tweets today was the same energy in those texts. I didn’t know that I wanted someone funny until I was actually with someone funny."

5. A definitive ranking of The Bachelorette Australia contestants by who is most likely to win.

Gather round, people.

We’re a few weeks into The Bachelorette Australia now and we all know what that means: It’s time to spend hours mulling over who is going to win Angie Kent’s heart.

While we don’t know for sure how the rest of this season will play out, we certainly have a couple of theories.

After all, there’s already loads of potential spoilers (and photographic evidence) popping up about Angie’s final four standing bachelors.
