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

1. Married at Fight Sight’s Lauren on the moment she confronted Ines about being a paid actress.

On last night’s episode of Married At First Sight, it finally happened.

After secretly texting each other behind their matched partners backs, Ines Basic and Sam Ball finally, erm, sealed the deal.

But there’s one thing fans keep pointing out – it all seemed very fake.

So fake that fellow MAFS contestant Lauren Huntriss even confronted Ines about being a paid actress.

Speaking on KIIS FM's Kyle and Jackie O Show, the 32-year-old said: "I said to Ines when we were off set, I said 'Ines, look me dead in the eyes right now and tell me you're not a paid actress'."

But to Lauren's surprise, Ines actually denied the reports.

"She's like: 'Why does everyone think I'm a paid actress, do you really think I would be this stressed out and have lost this much weight if I was a paid actress, no!'" Lauren said.

Earlier this week, it was reported that Ines is struggling to cope with the backlash to her behaviour on the reality show.

According to Woman's Day, Ines has lost around 12kg as a result of the stress.

2. A leaked Game of Thrones cast list has confirmed a major spoiler.

As fans will remember, season seven of the series frustratingly ended on a cliffhanger.

But unfortunately for fans, season eight will not pick up where it left off. At least not immediately, anyway.

In fact, the Night King won't appear in the first episode of the season.

"In the third part of the last season, there is a battle that the creators intend to be the biggest in television history," Vladimir Furdik, the actor behind the Night King told Hungarian website Sorozat Wiki.

"Almost the full episode will be about the battle. It will take about an hour."

April 15 can't come quick enough.

3. The Daltons from Googlebox share the one thing their daughters refuse to talk about on camera.

We probably all draw the line somewhere when it comes to what's deemed appropriate to discuss in front of parents.

Well, the same goes for for "professional couch sitters" The Daltons, of Gogglebox fame, whose daughters keep one think strictly confidential from their mum and dad.

All things relating to boyfriends.

Speaking to New Idea, Gogglebox's Matt and Kate Dalton revealed Millie, 20, and Holly, 18, won't speak about their love lives on camera, or around the dinner table.

"Boyfriends are top secret stuff. They don't share boy stuff with us," Kate said.

Adding, perhaps, a reason why the girls are reluctant to share whether they have any boys on the scene, Matt weighed in with a pretty classic over-protective dad call.

"I have a lot of suspicions," Matt added. "But I don't think they have strong enough boyfriends to be able to sit on the couch with us."

Hear that, potential boyfriends?

The Dalton family have returned to screens for the ninth season of Gogglebox Australia, and they're just as entertaining as ever.

4. “I was so sad.” Mandy Moore has opened up about her marriage to ex-husband Ryan Adams.

Mandy Moore has discussed her seven year marriage to disgraced musician Ryan Adams, who is accused of soliciting explicit messages from an underage girl as well as years of emotionally abusing partners, including Moore herself.

Speaking to Marc Maron on his WTF podcast, Moore called it an “entirely unhealthy dynamic”, adding that she was “living my life for him”.

The interview comes days after a New York Times investigation featured her accounts of their relationship, in which she described him as extremely controlling and emotionally abusive.

He reportedly told her she "wasn't a real musician" because she didn't play an instrument.

“I had no sense of self; I was imperceptible, I was so small in my own world,” she said.

“I felt like I was drowning. It was so untenable and unsustainable and it was so lonely. I was so sad. I was lonely with him.”

When questioned about her musical career, which she told the NYT Adams had persuaded her to turn her back on, she said she felt like she had no choice but to leave that part of her life behind because "he needed me".

Following the expose last week, Adams issued the following statement:

"I am not a perfect man and I have made many mistakes. To anyone I have ever hurt, however unintentionally, I apologise deeply and unreservedly.

"But the picture that this article paints is upsettingly inaccurate. Some of its details are misrepresented; some are exaggerated; some are outright false. I would never have inappropriate interactions with someone I thought was underage. Period.

"As someone who has always tried to spread joy through my music and my life, hearing that some people believe I caused them pain saddens me greatly. I am resolved to work to be the best man I can be. And I wish everyone compassion, understanding and healing."

5. "So kind..." Cass Thorburn's bittersweet first night on Dancing with the Stars.

Cassandra Thorburn made her Dancing With The Stars debut as the human embodiment of the flamenco girl emoji and looked joyful doing it.

Finishing her dance to cheers and applause from the crowd, all was going well for the 47-year-old former journalist – until judge Craig Revel Horwood gave his short but brutal assessment.

Cass Thorburn made her Dancing With The Stars debut last night.

The Australian-British dancer has a reputation as the “mean” judge on UK’s Strictly Come Dancing, and it was clear from Monday night that he was going to live up to it.

After finishing the waltz with her partner Marco De Angelis, Cass said, “I felt beautiful. I felt confident. I felt happy.”

Cass, who was married to Karl Stefanovic for 21 years, then received encouraging words from judges Tristan MacManus and Sharna Burgess. Both agreed she looked “beautiful” and “gorgeous” but just needed to let loose and enjoy herself a bit more.

Craig wasn’t so positive.

“Well, it was all going well until the skirt was ripped off and you started to dance,” he began.

“And there, quite frankly, was the failure.”
