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

1. “She’s found out.” The moment that MAFS’ Dan almost confessed to affair.


Everybody gather round because we have important Married at First Sight gossip.

Dan, who is married to Tamara but in an affair with Jessika on the reality TV Show, has spilled the beans on the last dinner party in which Cyrell unleashed on her cast mates for their cheating.

Things became explosive when Cyrell accused Jess of lying and called the secret couple out in front of everyone else.

During an interview with the Talking Married panel Dan shared, “When Cyrell came storming in, I was just like, ‘she’s found out'”.

“So, when I heard her coming through the doors, the heart started bouncing, and I’m like, ‘alright, I gotta face the music here.'”

“I was nearly just going to say it there and then,” he continued. “I’m like, ‘I better break it to them now I suppose’.”

But Dan instead avoided the confrontation, which was maybe for the best considering Cyclone Cyrell was out in full force that evening.

“I didn’t feel like it was the right time, I was a bit intoxicated as were a few people there, so it might’ve gotten a bit out of hand.”

Although Jess and Dan are yet to confirm their affair to the other contestants, we’re confident John Aiken will be able to shed some light on their secret rendezvous’ this Sunday night.

Notting Hill is a 90's classic film starring renowned actors Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts. It's as hilarious as it is heart-warming.

But Julia Roberts, who plays successful American actress Anna Scott in the film, has shared that when she initially heard of the film's plot line, she did not want to do it.

Talking to The Guardian's G2, Roberts shared, "I did not want to do that movie."

"The pitch of it sounds awful. Do you want to come and play the world's biggest movie star and then fall in love with the bookshop owner? No!"

Roberts shared that it was only after meeting with the filmmakers and liking them so much that she relented.

Upon reflection we're guessing she's probably not mad she chose to take up the role, considering the film made $364 million at the box office.

3. Elizabeth from Married at First Sight has had a complete makeover.


Following one of the oldest breakup tradition in history, MAFS bride, Elizabeth Sobinoff has had not one, but two post breakup hair changes.

Nationally televised cheating scandals will do that to a girl.

After voting 'leave' on her MAFS husband Sam, the 28-year-old store manager switched her platinum blonde hair extensions for a darker brown shade. Completing her transformation, she's now ditched her extensions in favour of a chic, blunt cut lob, and we happen to think she looks fabulous.

4. Sam Smith talks about undergoing liposuction at 12, and not identifying as male or female.


UK singer Sam Smith has shared his gender identity struggles with The Good Place actress and body activist, Jameela Jamil on her latest Instagram interview series, I Weigh Interviews.

Speaking about his life-long body image issues and his struggles of being genderqueer, he said that he doesn't choose to identify as male or female.

"You do not identify in a gender. You are just you. You are your own special creation. That is how I take it. I am not male or female. I think I float somewhere in between - somewhat on the spectrum," he said.

'"I’ve always had a bit of a war in my body and my mind… I do think like a woman in my head at times.

"I’ve sometimes sat there and questioned, do I want a sex change? It’s something I still think about, but I don’t think it is."

The 26-year-old singer also spoke about a childhood hormonal imbalance which meant he had the appearance of breasts - something which he would address with liposuction at the age of 12.

"I was holding a lot of oestrogen in my chest. I had breasts. I had liposuction, I was 12 years old…. That was a big thing. At the time I was very happy about it," he said.

"It was the basis of all of my teasing, all of my bullying, my whole life. It was my chest.

"I had some horrible situations in school with guys. A guy grabbed my chest in the playground in front of all his friends. That was horrible."

Paris Jackson - the daughter of the late singer, Michael Jackson - has responded to the claims of child sexual abuse and psychological grooming alleged at her father, in the HBO documentary, Leaving Neverland.

In the two-part film, Wade Robson and James Safechuck detail how the former 'King of Pop' befriended their families while he sexually assaulted them both on tour and at his Neverland Ranch in California.

Despite this, Paris Jackson has largely denied these allegations and continued to defend her father in a thread of recent tweets.

Responding to a fan who said tabloid media was 'provoking her' for a response, the 20-year-old shared her thoughts on the controversy.

"There’s nothing I can say that hasn’t already been said in regards to defence. Taj (Michael Jackson's nephew) is doing a perfect job on his own and I support him but that’s not my role," she wrote.

"I’m just tryna get everyone to chill out and go with the flow, be mellow and think about the bigger picture. That’s me."

Paris also said she had the "same moral compass as [her] father," when responding to another tweet from a supporter who asked if she would trade her wealth for "freedom from disgusting press".
