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

1. Okay, so MAFS brides Hayley and Poppy shared a kiss, and now we’re really confused.

By now we can all agree that this season of Married at First Sight is wild. There is honestly new goss on all the brides and grooms daily.

Today’s comes courtesy of bodybuilder, Hayley Vernon, and mum-of-two, Poppy Jennings.

Quick recap: Both appeared on the show this week. Hayley married truck driver, David Cannon, and Poppy married FIFO worker, Luke Eglin. We also watched as they attended their honeymoons.

But in recent days (i.e. several weeks after filming finished), Hayley and Poppy went out for drinks in Sydney’s Chatswood, and were spotted making out. With each other. For quite some time. (huh???)

Photos of the two brides locking lips were published by Daily Mail.

Nothing has been said by either bride so basically, we’re very confused. Answers appreciated.

2. The Friends cast are returning to TV, and could we BE anymore excited? (Well, actually, yes…)

So we have some seriously exciting news to share: the cast of Friends will be back on telly for an hourlong special, nearly 16 years after the finale of the sitcom went to air.

As told to Deadline, after lengthy negotiations with Warner Bros TV the actors have come to an agreement to go along with the show, with each star to be paid between $3-4 million. WOW, okay, that’s a lot of money.

The special will be airing to help launch reruns of every Friends episode on the new streaming platform, HBO Max. But there’s a catch: it’s unscripted, meaning we’re not going to be back with the beloved characters. It’ll more likely be the actors having a (very expensive) chat about the show and its legacy, etc. etc.

So far, that’s the only information we’ve been given besides this cryptic tweet from Matthew Perry…

And, as you might (or might not) have heard, all cast members are back on Instagram!

It’s time to do some stalking.

3. Lindsay Lohan announced her new boyfriend on Instagram. Then took it back.

Musician and actor Lindsay Lohan went ‘Insta-official’ with her “boyfriend” before… deleting it.

The 33-year-old shared a group photo of her with friends at a Dubai music festival, along with the caption: “lovely night with sister and my boyfriend bader”.

After seemingly referring to Bader Shammas, who is in the photo with her, the singer removed the caption before it had even been up for 24 hours. She swapped it for a smiley face.

Sooo basically, she may or may not be in a relationship.

Ah, celebrities… they’re good at keeping us on the edge of our seats.

Well. It looks like Sofia Richie, the girlfriend of Kourtney Kardashian’s ex-boyfriend Scott Disick, is quietly separating herself from the Kardashian family.

The 21-year-old has recently revealed she will no longer appear on Keeping Up With The Kardashians and has unfollowed Kourtney on Instagram.

“I want to get into acting,” Richie told Entertainment Tonight when asked about her future on reality TV. “I feel like, for a while, I kind of held back on things because I was afraid of failure, but 2020 is [the year of] no fear. I’m gonna be doing acting stuff really soon.”

“It’s always been my thing, kinda growing up, I kind of felt like I was stuck in everyone’s shadow. But I’m very different from both my sister and my dad, so I feel like I’ve kinda navigated into my lane, and it’s been great for me.”

Sofia Richie, who is also friends with Kylie Jenner, has been dating Scott Disick, 36,(Kourtney’s ex and father of her children) since 2017.

5. The Royals have announced the details of Princess Beatrice’s wedding.

The lead up to Princess Beatrice's wedding has, of course, been marked by controversy, as the past six months have been a period of scandal and secrecy for the monarchy.

Princess Beatrice's father, Prince Andrew, has been embroiled in a storm in the wake of his ‘disaster’ BBC Newsnight interview in November last year.
