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

1. Oh. There’s a rumour that MAFS’ Jessika Power could appear on Love Island Australia.

In excellent news for those of us missing the presence of our favourite MAFS contestants on our screens (and by favourites we of course mean the ones who caused the most fights), our prayers have been answered.

One of them might be re-appearing in her ~search for love~, but instead of marrying a stranger on the television, she gets to go on an all-expenses paid holiday where she’ll be tasked with walking around in a bikini all day and dating an array of topless men.

We’re of course talking about Jessika Power, who has apparently proved she’s the perfect fit for a spot on the cast of Love Island Australia – the show which boasts a premise where contestants are actually encouraged to swap partners.

“[Producers] think she’s the perfect fit for the show,” a source claimed to NW, adding: “She’s never far from drama and has no problems partner swapping – not to mention she is ratings gold!”

Well… they’re not wrong there. We would definitely be tuning in.

While Jessika – who is apparently dating fellow MAFS alum Nick Furphy as of last week – is yet to confirm the claims, the source added that she has been boasting about getting paid six figures for the appearance.

Six figures.

Good lord.

2. Apparently The Bachelorette’s Angie Kent is keen to get MAFS’ Telv Williams on the show and wait, what?

According to Woman’s Day, Angie Kent has a crush on MAFS’ Telv Williams and has requested he join the suitors vying for her heart on The Bachelorette.

Uh… we’re not buying it.

We trust Osher completely and if he didn’t personally choose Telv for Angie, he’s not the man for her and that’s final.

While Telv is currently in a relationship with model Katie Beever, the publication today claimed that Angie has him on her “wish list” for the show, after they exchanged messages in the past.

We are unsure whether this was before or after his rumoured relationship with MAFS’ Jessika Power, while she was still with Dan Webb.

(It’s… confusing).

They also claimed that Nic Jovanovic, star of this year’s season of MAFS, is another suitor Angie was keen to see on the show.

We would only be open to this if it meant a guest appearance from Cyclone Cyrell would ensue.

Who can make this happen?

3. “I cry a lot.” Ariana Grande has opened up about the challenges of touring.

After crying on stage during her Sweetener tour, Ariana Grande's fans were concerned.

Taking to Twitter, many of them expressed that she needed time to heal instead of touring.

Ariana responded sympathetically, explaining that tour isn't easy.

"I feel everything very intensely and have committed to doing this tour during a time in my life when I'm still processing a lot... so sometimes I cry a lot," E! News reports.

"I'm sharing this because I'm grateful and because I want you to know that if you too are hurting, you can push through and are not alone. It is hard to balance taking care of the people around you, doing your job, and healing/taking care of yourself at the same time... but I want you to know, you aren't alone and I think you're doing great. love you," she added.

In late 2018, Ariana Grande emerged from a relationship with Saturday Night Live comedian Pete Davidson. The pair reportedly got together in May, were engaged by June, and had split up by October. In addition to this, the 26-year-old's ex-boyfriend, Mac Miller, was found dead in September 2018.

The great thing about first birthday parties is that if you stuff it up, your child probably won't remember it.

But for boxing champion Amir Khan and his wife, Instagram influencer Faryal Makhdoom, there was no room for error when they spent $140,000 (yes, really) on their second daughter's first birthday party.

The party was rainforest themed, with a five-tiered jungle themed cake and realistic props.

Animal dancers were hired, and the pair actually rented out an entire stadium for the party.

This cake journey only properly started a year ago. To all of you who don’t know me, I am a self taught cake artist which means everything you see on my page has been created by me and I have learnt to do this all on my own. This includes the cake that was featured in the @dailymail today. This was a huge opportunity and I can’t say it wasn’t nerve racking because the @faryalmakhdoom and @amirkingkhan chose me of all the brilliant cake artists out there to do her beautiful daughter, Alaynas cake. She specified that it would be a rainforest theme and pretty much left the design to me so this is what I came up with. Each tier took hours of sugar crafting but I got the result that I wanted and here it stands, in all its glory. Not many people get the chance to do something like this and it is what dreams are made of. Thank you to @faryalmakhdoom for trusting me with Alayna’s cake and being super chilled out. Without her support this would never have happened. It was truly a vision that came to life and if I’m honest, it still seems surreal. Happy birthday again to Alayna. May Allah (swt) give you a long, healthy life and may you shine bright just like your yummy mummy ❤️???? picture credit goes to @krixul #instalove #instacake #faryalmakhdoom #amirkhan #rainforest #potd #instapost #cake #cakeboss #cakegrid #cakestagram @cakedecorationmagazine @cakedecoratingheaven @cakeboss_people @cake @instacakers @___cakestagram___ @sturdycakestackers @trulymadlysweetlycupcakes @karen_davies_sugarcraft @cakes.n.sprinkles @sheri_wilson_ @massa_ticino_sugarpaste Topper made by @deluxe_balloons

Is it normal to be jealous of a one-year-old's birthday party?

5. The bottle cap challenge has taken over Instagram. And Mariah Carey has officially won it.

Ever thought to check your kicking accuracy by backwards kicking a bottle cap off the top of a bottle? Neither did we.

But the internet is no place for rational thinking.

The ‘bottle cap challenge’ originated in martial arts circles as a means of testing karate and kicking skills, but since the internet loves a challenge (remember the ice bucket challenge?) the bottle cap challenge has become a… thing.

Even celebrities are joining in...

So, instead of having you trawl through the hashtag #BottleCapChallenge on Instagram or Twitter to find the funniest or most impressive attempts, we compiled the very best bottle cap challenges on the internet – including Mariah Carey – for you.
