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

1. Kim Kardashian says she only eats chicken nuggets with honey and THAT IS NOT OK.

Look we’re sorry. We should know by now that Kim Kardashian does things in a strange, very different way to most, but it seems we still get surprised every time she shares a new quirk.

Over the past few days, McDonald’s has shared the very important, newsworthy information that we’ve been dying to know: what celebrities order.

It starts off relatively normal, with Millie Bobbie Brown ordering nuggets and a side salad (at Maccas though??) and Kanye West getting nuggets, fries and a milkshake (we are as surprised as you are, very normal for him).

BUT THEN, Kim's order: A cheeseburger, nuggets, milkshake and a pie. But wait... with a side of honey... for the nuggets.

Once the questions began rolling in Kim shared on Twitter that she believes honey is the only suitable dipping sauce for nuggets.

And, we're just really shocked and confused right now.

2. Get out the scones: The Crown will end after season 5 with Imelda Staunton as the Queen.

We have some sad news for The Crown fans... season 5 will indeed be the last one.

However, on a more positive note, it was announced yesterday that Imelda Staunton will be playing Queen Elizabeth for the final season of the Netflix hit series.

The creator and showrunner Peter Morgan shared, "At the outset I had imagined The Crown running for six seasons but now that we have begun work on the stories for season five it has become clear to me that this is the perfect time and place to stop,

"I’m grateful to Netflix and Sony for supporting me in this decision."

Staunton, from  Downton Abbey and Harry Potter, revealed the exciting news by saying, “I have loved watching The Crown from the very start.

"As an actor it was a joy to see how both Claire Foy and Olivia Colman brought something special and unique to Peter Morgan’s scripts. I am genuinely honoured to be joining such an exceptional creative team and to be taking The Crown to its conclusion."

As both Foy and Colman delivered a spectacular performance as the Queen, we look forward to seeing Staunton do the same, with a cup of tea in hand.

3. “I felt so ashamed.” Erin Barnett’s powerful realisation after her 8kg weight loss on I’m a Celeb.

Following on from being a contestant on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!, Erin Barnett has opened up about her weight struggles.

While in the South African jungle, she lost eight kilos in three weeks, she told her nearly 400,000 Instagram followers.

"I spent majority of 2019 in and out of hospital because of endometriosis/PCOS. During that time I became so unhealthy, mentally & physically!" Erin wrote, adding she would use food as an escape mechanism.

Erin shared a "before and after" photo from before she entered the jungle, and said she was "really embarrassed to show everyone this... because I absolutely HATED myself for the way I looked."

After spending 3 weeks in the jungle I lost 8kgs.⁣ I spent majority of 2019 in and out of hospital because of endometriosis/PCOS. During that time I became so unhealthy, mentally & physically! ⁣ I was on pain killers 24/7, eating the most unhealthiest foods you could imagine errrrrrday, food became an escape for me. ⁣ ⁣ Left: NOW 2020 - Right: Before 2019 ⁣ I was really embarrassed to show everyone this before & after photo because I absolutely HATED myself for the way i looked. I became so insecure & unhappy! ⁣I preach about ‘SELF LOVE’ so much...but I couldn’t even love myself or be okay with how my body changed from all those surgeries. I became super antisocial because I was embarrassed that I went up 2-3 sizes in my clothes. How pathetic, right? ⁣ I didn’t look at my body in the mirror for 3 months prior to South Africa. I convinced myself that I was better off indoors away from people because my insecurities were so bad I didn’t want ANYONE to see me. ⁣ ⁣ Looking back now, I feel so ashamed I ever felt this way about myself & my body. ⁣ I felt disgusted in myself for trying to preach about loving your self & here I was....being a terrible role model for myself & others. I was literally fighting a battle I wouldn’t win; physically or mentally. ⁣ ⁣ This was a little wake up call for me to not let my happiness depend on my weight. I also realised being “healthy” isn’t just about being physically fit. Your mental health needs to be Healthy first! Well, in my opinion I think I needed to be mentally happy/healthy with myself before I could be physically happy & healthy. Does that make sense? ⁣ ⁣2020 is all about learning from my past & finding ways to use my mistakes as fuel to make my future the best it can be. ⁣I posted this on my Instagram so I can come back and look at this before and after photo & the caption I’ve written if I am ever having a bit of a down day. ⁣ ⁣Everyone has insecurities; just because you may think someone’s insecurities are silly, don’t be rude or mean with comments suggesting what they feel is “wrong” just because you find it easier to accept things others can't????❤️????????????????????????⭐️

Erin went on to reflect on her "antisocial" behaviour last year.

"I convinced myself that I was better off indoors away from people because my insecurities were so bad I didn’t want ANYONE to see me," she wrote.

"2020 is all about learning from my past & finding ways to use my mistakes as fuel to make my future the best it can be."

The former Love Island star finished her post, asking everyone to be a little more understanding of other people's insecurities.

4. "I felt a dagger, right in my heart.” Jessica Simpson on her twisted relationship with John Mayer.

Jessica Simpson has opened up about her relationship with John Mayer, who she dated on and off for a year, until 2010, when he infamously described her to as "sexual napalm" to Playboy.

"Yeah, that girl is like crack cocaine to me. Sexually it was crazy," he said. "That's all I'll say. It was like napalm, sexual napalm."

In her memoir, Simpson reflected on her relationship with Mayer. In an extract obtained by Radar Online, Simpson recalled talking to her therapist about the relationship, as they talked about Mayer breaking up with her right before she went on stage to perform.

"That's not love," Simpson remembers her therapist saying.

"You know that, right? I mean, he never loved you...He was obsessed with you. Love and obsession are so different. One is healthy, one is not.'

"She said it so casually, like this was something I should have figured out a long time ago," Simpson recalled. "I felt a dagger, right in my heart again. I was still protective of him."

As for the Playboy quote, Simpson said she was "floored and embarrassed that my grandmother was actually gonna read that."

5. "My bum hole ripped.” Charlotte Crosby told me exactly what happens to your body after I'm a Celeb.

Some reality TV contestants leave their respective shows with cash prizes and tarnished reputations. Charlotte Crosby left hers with a bleeding anus and a new love interest.

She’d also be the first one to tell you that she’s not the tiniest bit ashamed of either (and nor should she be) and it’s this unfiltered approach to discussing life, love and bodily functions that has endeared her to a legion of fans, building a successful career on simply being herself.

The 29-year-old first rose to fame in 2011 as a cast member on the popular reality series Geordie Shore, before going on to appear in many other reality-based programs while also working as an influencer, radio star, author, entrepreneur and charity ambassador.

From the moment she first appeared on this year’s season of I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! she began grabbing headlines.

Initially for her refusal to jump out of a helicopter (fair) and then due to her romantic relationship with Married At First Sight star Ryan Gallagher, a love that sprung up on camera in the celebrity-filled camp alongside gruesome challenges and a fair bit of starvation.
