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

1. Kyle Sandilands and Imogen Anthony have responded to the rumours that they have split.

Rumours have been swirling this week that Kyle Sandilands and Imogen Anthony have ended things after eight years together.

But given their latest social media activity, it seems to be… completely untrue.

The whispers started thanks to an “anonymous sources” quoted in a New Idea article which claimed the radio host, 48, and his 28-year-old girlfriend had been living “separate lives”.

In response to the article, which now appears to have been completely made up, Imogen uploaded a photo on Instagram and it’s… pretty full on.

“You got that odd kinda love that I like. 8 years, still counting and they are still trying to rock this b**ch, come ON!! Get it together idiots,” Imogen captioned the photo of herself straddling a mask-clad Kyle on a couch.

It’s… a lot.

But it succeeds in putting the rumour to bed. On a couch, wearing a Friday the 13th mask.

Yep, definitely an image we’ll never unsee.

In May 2018, Miranda Kerr welcomed her second child, Hart, with Evan Spiegel. His half-brother and the son of Orlando Bloom, Flynn, is now eight years old.

It's not unusual to have an unconventional family in 2019, but the 38-year-old Aussie model has made the most of her situation.

In an interview with Channel Seven's The Morning Show, Kerr explained that she has bonded with Bloom's new fiance, Katy Perry.

"I'm really grateful for the relationship we all have together because we do get along so well," Kerr said.

"The only thing that we ever have a challenge with is working on our schedules, to make sure everyone spends enough time with Flynn."

She added that she feels blessed that the situation worked out, because it allows Flynn to be comfortable and happy.

"I'm very happy because it may not have worked out that way – but I feel very blessed that it has worked out this way," she explained.

"We actually all enjoy each other's company."

3. It turns out Elisabeth Moss nearly turned down her role in The Handmaid's Tale.

It's hard to imagine The Handmaid's Tale without Elisabeth Moss as the protagonist, but that's exactly what almost happened.

The reason she changed her mind? Pure jealously.

Speaking to Heat magazine, the 36-year-old actress explained that she was initially hesitant to join the show because she had just finished filming Mad Men.

“The problem was that I didn’t want to sign on necessarily to do another TV show so quickly, as it had only been a couple of years since I worked on Mad Men,” she told Heat magazine.

She added that she eventually had a nightmare that she didn't do it, and decided that was a sign.

“I was thinking about whether to do the show one evening and I remember having an almost nightmarish experience of waking up in the middle of the night imagining not taking it and someone else doing it," she said.

“I pictured that in my mind and then I thought to myself, ‘no, no, no, no, no someone else is not getting their hands on this’. So I said yes," she added. “That’s why I did it – pure jealousy and competitiveness."

She added that she now feels incredibly connected to the role.

“I’m so glad I did though, and it’s been the role I’ve felt most connected to out of anything I’ve ever done. I’m so proud to have been a part of it," she said.

Praise be.

Hold your horses everyone, Meryl Streep has a real name... and it's damn Mary Louise.

Yes, the same name as her terrifying character on Big Little Lies. 

The same name that gives you mother-in-law from hell nightmares.

But it's apparently all intentional.

According to Buzzfeed, Liane Moriarty wrote Mary Louise's role specifically for Meryl Streep.

Which makes.... sense.

We'll go back to hating her now.

It has been 10 years this week since The Project first graced our screens, and Carrie Bickmore has been there for all 10 of them.

But the show, which took out its eighth Logie for Most Popular Panel or Current Affairs Program a few weeks ago, has come a long way in a decade. In fact, Carrie and her original co-hosts didn’t expect the show to last beyond the first episode.

“On the first show we didn’t have an audience… Hughsey [who was on the original panel] cracked the absolute shits,” Carrie told host of podcast You’ve Gotta Start Somewhere Rachel Corbett.
