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

1. Cass Wood’s epic response to people who shamed her bikini photos.

After receiving some criticism about posting bikini photos, The Bachelor’s Cass Wood would like it to be known that she doesn’t give a damn.

And more power to her.

Sharing a lengthy Instagram caption, alongside a photo of herself and two other friends on a yacht with their bikini tops grasped in their hands in an act of defiance, the 23-year-old eloquently made her point.

“This is ridiculous, I’ve literally been brought over to Thailand on a swimwear shoot and everyone has the right to post as they please anyway without explaining themselves to people,” she wrote.

“When I look at this photo, I see three girls living in the moment having the time of their lives,” she continued.

“We are women supporting each other and I feel so strongly about people supporting one another and not bringing each other down. I stand by the motto ‘If you don’t have anything nice to say, then don’t say it at all’ and I am proud of who I am.

“Kindness and positivity will take you far.”

And given that Cass is due to star in Bachelor in Paradise very soon, where she will *shock horror* be in swimwear for a large portion of the show, might we recommend those bikini nay-sayers to cast their attention elsewhere.

2. The name Meghan and Harry definitely cannot name their baby.

Now that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have well and truly wrapped up their royal tour, we can’t help but feel a little empty. Although we’re no longer able to obsess over the finer details of the Duchess’ latest outfit, we’re moving onto the imminent arrival of their first child.

While there’s not much we know about the baby – other than the fact that they’re due sometime in early 2019 – your guess is as good as ours when it comes to the name or gender.

However, there’s one name they most definitely cannot name their future offspring, especially if they have a boy, and that’s Prince Albert, because it, erm, is slang for a certain type of male genital piercing which extends from the urethra opening all the way up to where the glans and shaft come together.

This particular piece of genital decoration gets its namesake from the original Prince Albert (the husband of Princess Victoria) who apparently pierced his penis with a ring so he could easily move the appendage from left to right, as to avoid a bulge in tight-fitting pants.

Dear Will and Kate, you CANNOT name him Prince Albert. #nuffsaid

Now, it needs to be said that while Prince Harry and Meghan's children will not be royals in the official sense - royal rules and all that - they'll always be a little Prince or Princess in our eyes.

3. Justin Bieber just got a face tattoo to show his love for Hailey Baldwin and... that's not necessary.

Oh. Justin Bieber just showed his fiance some love by... getting a couples tattoo on his face?

According to Page Six, tattoo artist Bang Bang has revealed the couple have each been inked for each other.

"It’s really thin and delicate. And [it’s] also not a traditional couples’ tattoo . . . I don’t want to give away what it is until press gets a hold of it," he said.

We know that it's next to his eyebrow. And that it is incredibly small and involves words.

We're just hoping they don't break up now. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

4. 'I'll never forget that day.' Married at First Sight star tells of her devastating time after the show.

A month after Married At First Sight aired in 2016, Christie Jordee dealt with the backlash of her on-screen relationship with Mark Hughes breaking down.

"Women are really harsh to other women. I just got nailed," she told BW Magazine

"I’ll never forget that day. I was just pacing and I ended up on the floor in a foetal position. I couldn’t breathe. I think I was hysterically crying for about three solid hours," she added.

The 39-year-old said that counselling was offered, but the network psychologist called twice, only to tell her she sounded fine.

“It’s not about love, it’s about good TV," she added, explaining that no one can anticipate the way they will be edited.

5. Tiffany Scanlon has shared a 1280-word Insta-rant against Bachie in Paradise producers.

It’s that time of the year when our eyes gleam with anticipation as we find out which of our favourite Bachelor and Bachelorette hopefuls will get a second chance at Instagram fame love in the form of Bachelor in Paradise.

However, there's one familiar face we definitely won't be seeing... Tiffany Scanlon.

After waiting months for an official confirmation, just five days before filming was due to start, the 32-year-old said she received a message stating: “This time around the network has decided not to take you to paradise”.

And she had many words to say about this.

“The better, more mature thing to do might be to say nothing, to take the graceful and humble route BUT I’m a stickler for justice and I don’t think that people or organisations should get away with appalling behaviour,” she begins.

“Some will say I’m just disgruntled and bitter, and you’d be correct, given the way things happened I am disgruntled and very bitter. I don’t write this for your sympathy or judgement but to help myself heal and to share with you not only the good times but also the really shit times in life.”
