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

1. There’s a rumour that The Voice’s Jack Vidgen and Sheldon Riley are dating and we hope it’s true.

When it comes to The Voice, there are few things we actually care about more than ~secret relationships~ between contestants/judges. The singing is cool, we guess. But we’d be lying if we said we weren’t ultimately tuning in to pick up any evidence of flings.

(We also like it when the judges fight, but moving on).

According to Woman’s Day, the latest rumoured romance is between contestants Jack Vidgen and Sheldon Riley and we desperately hope it’s true.

A source reportedly told the magazine that Jack, 22, was overheard asking people if 19-year-old Sheldon was single.

He also tagged Sheldon in an Instagram post that read: ‘Tag someone you love more than words’, so it’s only a matter of time before their televised wedding.

We assume Guy Sebastian and Delta Goodrem will officiate from their giant red chairs, before Kelly Rowland and Boy George sing a duet at their reception.

2. “He’s not my sugar daddy.” Love Island’s Erin Barnett forced to defend her relationship.

Yikes.

“I’ve just been reading some some articles about my relationship with Mick. I really shouldn’t of kept scrolling through the articles and comments. Yes, I am dating an older man. No, he isn’t my ‘sugar daddy’,” she wrote on Instagram.

“I have my own money, I don’t need any man, at whatever age, giving me any gifts or their money. U buy myself better gifts than anyone can,” she added.

“I’m 23 years old and Mick is 43. This is what everyone wants to know, so here it is.

“Meeting Mick has been a blessing. I am so lucky to be with a man who treats me with respect. It’s also a blessing he has kids as I can not have kids, ever, due to my medical issues.”

Yep, it’s… interesting.

In one of his very first posts to the platform, the former sportsman has finally responded to those rumours that he’s actually Khloe Kardashian’s real dad.

You see, for years, fans have theorised that O.J., who was represented in court by Khloe’s father Robert Kardashian, had an affair with Kris Jenner.

“Never – and I want to stress never – in any way shape or form have I ever had any interest in Kris, romantically, sexually, and I never got any indication that she had any interest in me,” the ex-NFL player said in a video shared to Twitter.

“All of these just stories are just bogus. Bad, you know, tasteless.”

He added: “Khloe, like all of the [Kardashian] girls, I’m very proud of, just like I know Bob would be if he was here. But the simply fact of the matter is she’s not mine.”

Well, there you have it. Case closed.

4. Lena Headey finally admits that Cersei deserved a better death on Game of Thrones.

Look, let’s be honest.

Cersei Lannister’s death on Game of Thrones was kind of… unsatisfying.

Instead of murdering his twin sister as many fans theorised he would, a mortally-wounded Jaime Lannister took Cersei down to the crypts under the Red Keep, where they were promptly killed by… rocks.

Fans of the show weren't exactly pleased with the death – and now it turns out Lena Headey actually agrees.

Lena, who played Cersei on the show, shared that she has "a few of her own gripes" with the final season.

"I haven't sat down drunkenly with David and Dan [the show's creators] yet," she told The Guardian.

"I will say I wanted a better death. Obviously you dream of your death," she added.

"You could go in any way on that show. So I was kind of gutted. But I just think they couldn't have pleased everyone. No matter what they did, I think there was going to be some big comedown from the climb."
