I have a pile of love letters in the drawer next to my bed. They’re all from Jake and most of them I didn’t deserve. I spent the course of our relationship with one foot in and one foot out, and the letters are pleas to remind me what we had, what I’d be giving up if I ran. I did run though, eventually. I went to Bali and intrastate and dated bitter frustration and remorse. I came home nearly two months later to my apartment filled with roses, fairylights, a home-cooked meal, a playlist of all my favourite music and, a love letter. I’m not saying that I didn’t have some reasons to run, because relationships aren’t perfect, but I am saying that I found someone that took responsibility, fought relentlessly for me, and has taken time to know me, and love me. I said in Paradise that I couldn’t imagine my life without you @jakeellis86 and that hasn’t changed. You’re my best friend and my home. I love you. Onwards and upwards ???? You sexy hunk of a man.

After announcing they have rekindled their romance, Jake Ellis and Megan Marx have been both congratulated and condemned in their Instagram comments sections, with a few people speculating that the couple faked their break-up to be cast on the new series of Bachelor in Paradise.

According to the Daily Mail, a former Married at First Sight star commented on Megan’s post announcing their rekindled relationship: “So you didn’t get invited to Paradise then and now surprise back together?”

To which Jake responded, “lol mate seriously f*** off. We were both asked, but said no for the obvious reason.”

The comments have since been deleted on Megan’s post, which is a sweet tribute to Jake as they go public with their reunion.

“I have a pile of love letters in the drawer next to my bed,” Megan began her caption. “They’re all from Jake and most of them I didn’t deserve. I spent the course of our relationship with one foot in and one foot out, and the letters are pleas to remind me what we had, what I’d be giving up if I ran.”

Megan continued the post by sharing how Jake persisted after their breakup, and finished by saying, “You’re my best friend and my home. I love you.”

“What I am Most THANKFUL for!” the Queen of Pop wrote in her caption. “My Children have led me down roads and opened doors I never imagined I’d walk through.

“Fame, Fortune and Records Broken could never equal that which I treasure and value most.”

Madonna shares Lourdes with ex-partner Carlos Leon; Rocco with ex-husband Guy Ritchie; and adopted David, Mercy, Estere and Stella from Malawi.

3. Kim Kardashian posted a throwback photo we never thought would see the light of day. 


Um. Every now and then a #throwback photo comes into our lives and shakes us in a way we weren’t sure was possible.

Throwbacks of Kim Kardashian especially have provided a lot of entertainment over the years.

Whether it be pictures of the 28-year-old as Paris Hilton’s assistant, or terrible red carpet photos from the early noughties, no one knows the comic value or a throwback more than Kim K herself.

And boy, did she prove it today.

Kim Kardashian posted a hilarious throwback of herself, Khloe and Kourtney on Twitter with the caption “I’m thankful for the glow up” and Oh. My. God.

Speaking to Daily Mail, Kidman described the film as "raw, complicated and, hopefully, compelling".

"She destroys those who go after her, and she's destroying herself," the 51-year-old said of her character.

"She can handle a gun – and handle herself – if she's attacked, but there's a woman underneath who's full of rage," the actress added.

The mum-of-two later said that she would let her daughters, ten-year-old Sunday Rose and seven-year-old Faith, see the film – but not until they're over 21.

"I don't want my girls to see this," she said.

It has been way over seven years since Kate Middleton married Prince William, and yes we are still talking about the ins and outs of that day.

You see royal life comes with a whole lot of traditions, rules and royal protocol, and way before Meghan Markle was making headlines for her rule-breaking antics, Kate Middleton also had her own ideas as she entered the British Royal family.

In a new documentary, William & Kate: The Journey, royal reporter Ashley Pearson reveals that Kate Middleton rejected royal protocol on her wedding day all the way back in 2011.

The Palace apparently wanted the now Duchess of Cambridge's hair up, and Kate...didn't.

"Royal sources tell me that the royals indicated very strongly to Kate that they would prefer her to wear her hair up for this very special occasion," Pearson shared.
