1. Singer and former Australian Idol contestant Ricki-Lee Coulter has announced her engagement to magazine New Idea. Coutler and her boyfriend, personal trainer Richard Harrison, have been dating for three years. During that same period, the singer has lost 30kg by following her soon-to-be-husband’s personal training program.
Coulter was previously married to childhood sweetheart Jamie Babbington but the pair split in 2008, after one year of marriage. Last year, Coulter said that the pain she experienced when going through her divorce was enough to put her off for good. Coulter said: “”I don’t know about marriage, I think there are a lot of issues with marriage in this country.”

7. The Mamamia team is full once more and all back at work today. So imagine our surprise when we discovered that we spent our summer holidays doing the EXACT same thing as the Victoria’s Secret team.
Have a look at their 2013 Summer promo video below. On our breaks we also spent similar amounts of time diving into pools without our bikini tops being dislodged, flipping our perfectly blow-dried, straight from the pool hair, lounging sexily on bedazzled sun lounges, dancing under showers and jumping for joy in sparkly gold bikinis.
