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

1. Keira Maguire says she was straight up “ghosted” by Jarrod Woodgate.

Oh… dear.

Put your pot plants out once and for all; Keira Maguire and Jarrod Woodgate are officially over. And we finally know why.

Although rumours of the Bachelor In Paradise couple’s split first began to swirl in June, the pair have remained fairly tight-lipped over their split.

Now, speaking to New Idea, Keira has shared that she was straight up “ghosted” by Jarrod after the pair had an argument after a night out at a pub.

“We broke up on a drunken night over something silly and that was it,” Keira said.

“He went back to the pub and I never heard from him again. Nothing at all and that was really hard for me. I wanted it to work,” she added.

“There is no last conversations which means I had no closure, which I really struggled with.

“He promised me the world, marriage and children and told me he was ready to settle down, but reality is that wasn’t what he wanted at all.”

28-year-old McCarthy has been back in the spotlight since photos were shared on Instagram of the real estate agent trying on wedding dresses whilst away in London.

Waring and Lyons split in 2017 after his affair with Emma came to light.

Mel seems unphased by the news though, hashtagging ‘couldn’t ask for more’ on her latest post.

4. “I’m the proudest brother in the world.” After seven years, Samuel Johnson has just reached his goal for Connie.

After seven years of fundraising, Samuel Johnson has just reached his goal for his sister Connie.

The actor, who created the charity Love Your Sister, promised Connie he would raise $10 million for cancer research by 2020.


“We did it. Promise kept. Thank you,” he posted on Facebook.

“This last 7 years was an apprenticeship. I’m just getting warmed up. Wait until you see what I’ve got for us next,” he added.

“I’m the proudest brother in the world right now.”

After Connie died in 2017 from terminal breast cancer, Samuel retired from acting to focus on fundraising for the charity.

We sat down for a one on one with Samuel Johnson. Post continues after video.


5. Multiple jobs, marathon training and home at 8pm: A day in the life of Carrie Bickmore.

It’s a lot. And that’s not even counting life at home with husband Chris Walker and her three children: Oliver, 11, Evie, 4, and Adelaide, eight months.

Carrie returned to work at The Project last month after maternity leave, but it’s no surprise that even now she’s back at work, her daily routine isn’t perfectly structured.
