Jackie O has revealed that her worst fear for her 8-year-old daughter Kitty is that she’ll be preyed upon online.

Following an interview with a self-proclaimed ‘Pedophile Hunter’ on KIIS FM, the 42-year-old vowed to watch her daughter’s online activity more closely.

“[If] you don’t watch these things, you just never know!’ she added, to which her co-host Kyle Sandilands responded, “It’s your worst nightmare and your worst fear… I didn’t realise there are that many creeps out there.”

In October last year, Jackie O announced she had split from her husband at the time, Lee Henderson, citing the split as “amicable.”

The media personality said the the pair remain good friends, and that the former couple still talk on the phone everyday and hang out as a family for the sake of their daughter Kitty.

Jackie and Lee, a professional photographer, met when the British national was backpacking around Australia. The pair were married three years later in 2003.

3. Er… it turns out Brad Pitt and Charlize Theron aren’t dating at all.

Brad Pitt and Charlize Theron are... not dating after all.

"They know each other, but it doesn't go beyond that," a source told E! News of the 43-year-old and 55-year-old's romance.

They added that the Hollywood pair "aren't dating and never were."

Oh. Well that... bursts our bubble.

Rumours emerged that the pair were dating following a sighting of the pair together at a public event over the weekend.

"They were ridiculously touchy-feely and his arm was around her back. At one point he winked at her," said an eyewitness.

According to The Sun the Allied actor and Mad Max actress were introduced to each other by Sean Penn, Theron's ex-fiance.

We guess that means he's... looking for an Australian girlfriend?

4. Sophie Turner just admitted to spoiling the Game of Thrones ending.

As it turns out, Sophie Turner has been blabbing about the ending to smash hit Game of Thrones, and she wasn't even drunk when she divulged the news.

While we're not sure the cast and crew would appreciate her indiscretions, according to a recent interview with W Magazine, a "few people" are in the loop.

"I’m so bad at keeping secrets. I don’t think people tell me things anymore because they know that I can’t keep them. I’ve already told the ending of Game of Thrones to a few people," she said.

"But it’s people that I know, not random people. It’s people that I know will keep the secret."

The eighth and final season of the award-winning fantasy series is set to hit Aussie screens on Monday, April 15th and all we know is that the fate of Winterfell and the Stark family is terrifyingly uncertain.

So in other words, nothing we weren't already expecting.

5. In her 28-year career, film critic Margaret Pomeranz has only ever walked out of one film.

Film critic and former host of At the Movies, Margaret Pomeranz has watched a lot of films.

From the critically acclaimed, to the downright awful, Pomeranz would know a thing or two about sitting through a dud flick, but to date there’s only been one film that’s caused her to walk out of the cinemas. And that’s the 2003 remake of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

Despite its box office success, the film starring Jessica Biel and Jonathan Tucker was too violent for the movie expert, she said to Foxtel Magazine while promoting her new show Screen, with Margaret Pomeranz and Graeme Blundell on Foxtel Arts.
