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

1. “It was slightly terrifying.” What we learnt from Kate Middleton’s first-ever podcast interview.

Kate Middleton has opened up about pregnancy and parenting in her very first podcast interview.

Speaking to Happy Mum, Happy Baby host Giovanna Fletcher, the Duchess of Cambridge said showing the world her firstborn child, Prince George, at Lindo Wing at St. Mary’s Hospital in London was “terrifying”.

Fletcher asked the Duchess:  “What was it like knowing there were so many people outside, after you’ve given birth and you’re in your little cocoon with your new family?”

“It was slightly terrifying, I’m not going to lie,” Middleton, who is married to Prince William, said.

"Everyone had been so supportive," the Duchess continued, "and both William and I were conscious that this was something that everyone was excited about, and we are hugely grateful for the support that the public has shown us, and actually for us to share that joy and appreciation with the public was equally important.

"But equally, it was coupled with a newborn baby and inexperienced parents and the uncertainty about what that held. So there were all sorts of mixed emotions."

The Duchess of Cambridge continued, saying when they returned home, "It wasn't that quiet in our household."

"It took us a bit of time to get ourselves settled and going again," she added.

Prince William and Kate Middleton now have three children together – Prince George, six, Princess Charlotte, four, and Prince Louis, one.

In the first episode of her 2003 reality TV show, Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica, Jessica Simpson infamously asked if the tuna she was eating was fish or chicken.

Now, 17 years on, it's still an iconic moment that the star is often asked about.

Speaking to Stellar Magazine on Sunday, Simpson shared that she doesn't regret that famous 'chicken or tuna' line.

"I always have asked a lot of questions and sometimes I don’t think things through before I ask, like the chicken of the sea thing," Simpson told the publication.

"Nothing that I've said out loud I regret; it's who I am and the way I see it," she said.

"People can say whatever the heck they want to say about me. I really don't care because they're probably walking on my name already. My logo is likely to be on the bottom of their shoes."

The show ran for three seasons, ending in 2005 – the same year as her marriage to Nick Lachey ended.

3. Oh. Orlando Bloom got a tattoo of his son's name... with the wrong spelling.

Oh... no. Orlando Bloom recently shared a photo of a new tattoo he had done to honour his son, Flynn.

But fans were quick to notice something wasn't quite right about the actor's new ink.

You see, the tattoo is supposed to spell out his son's name, "F L Y N N" in Morse Code, along with the date and time of Flynn's birth. However, the tattoo is, in fact, missing a dot, meaning it actually spells out the word “F R Y N N”. Yikes.

Well, it's the thought the counts.

Caroline Flack, the former host of the show, is the most recent. News broke on Saturday, Britain time, that the popular television presenter was found dead in her London apartment. A lawyer for her family confirmed she had died by suicide.

Since 2015, Love Island UK has been one of the most popular reality series’ Britain has seen. Viewers watch as 12 contestants enter a villa and “couple up” with each other as they try to find their perfect match. New contestants come in and “islanders” are voted off, until one couple remains.

As is now clear, going on the show is also potentially dangerous for one's mental health.

On June 20, 2018, Love Island contestant Sophie Gradon was found dead in her parents' home in north-east England. She was 32 years old and had appeared on the series two years prior in 2016.

Nine months later, on March 16, 2019, news broke that Love Island contestant Mike Thalassitis had also ended his life.
