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

1. “I hope you’re OK.” MAFS’ Stacey has responded to Michael’s new relationship with KC.

Well. It finally happened. Stacey from Marrried At First Sight has finally broken her silence on Michael and KC’s relationship. And her response was pretty, well… mature.

Stacey was asked how she felt about her (fake) ex-husband’s new relationship with the fellow MAFS contestant during an Instagram Q&A.

“I’m happy for them. You know, if he treats her right, then good on them,” Stacey responded.

“They’re happy, I’m happy, we’re all happy. It’s fine,” she added before blowing a kiss to the camera.

So there we have it, Stacey does seem genuinely happy for the couple.

The 26-year-old law graduate was also asked if she was dating anyone herself. But it turns out she's enjoying being single right now.

"No, I'm trying to realise my self worth and not settle," Stacey replied.

Here's hoping Michael and KC can make it last (we don't need anymore MAFS couple swaps to keep track of).

2. Karl Stefanovic’s Tik Tok with his daughter is the isolation content we need right now.

Karl Stefanovic is the latest celebrity to join the Tik Tok craze and we couldn't be happier about it.

The Today show host shared a video of him dancing and switching outfits to Drake‘s ‘Nonstop‘ with his teenage daughter. And it's exactly the content we need right now to get us through isolation.

The video itself is... glorious.

You can watch it (on repeat) below.

We miss you @mick_and_di! Stay safe ????

A post shared by #GoggleboxAU (@goggleboxau) on

The couple, who have been on Gogglebox since the show premiered in 2015, also shared how they were coping in isolation together.

"As you can see, we haven't murdered each other yet. Hopefully, by the start of the next season, all of this will be behind us and you'll be seeing us again on Gogglebox," joked Mick.

"This is a very, very crazy world that we live in and actually I did suggest we should have a new TV show called 'Survivor: In The Home'," said Di.

"Stay well, stay happy and stay safe," she concluded.

As one of the shows longest-standing participants, we hope to see Mick and Di back on our screens soon when it's safe to do so.

4. Hugh Jackman’s sweet message to his wife Deborra-Lee Furness on their 24th wedding anniversary.

Everyone's favourite Aussie celebrity couple, Hugh Jackman and Deborra-Lee Furness, just celebrated their 24th wedding anniversary. Yep, twenty-four.

And what better way to celebrate such a milestone than with a 90s throwback photo?

Hugh shared a (very) fresh-faced photo of himself and Deborra on Instagram on Saturday.

"These 24 years have been the best of my life! And, as far as I can see, we keep getting better. I love you Debs with every fiber of my soul," he captioned the post.

The couple married on April 11, 1996, just one year after they first met on set of Australian drama Corelli.

Hugh and Deborra share two children together, Oscar Maximilian Jackman and Ava Eliot Jackman.

Congratulations to the couple!

5. Tina Arena has been in the spotlight since she was 9. Now, she hasn't worked in over a year.

At nine years old, in 1974, Tina Arena first appeared in Australian lounge rooms on the children’s talent show Young Talent Time.

Since then, she has matured into one of Australia’s most successful singer-songwriters, selling more than 10 million records worldwide.

She’s won 15 ARIA Awards; made it into the ARIA Hall of Fame and sang ‘The Flame’ at the Opening Ceremony of the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games – the highest-rated TV telecast in Australian history.

Her 1994 album Don’t Ask remains one of the highest-selling Australian albums of all time.

Alas, like every other Australian at the moment, the now-52-year-old is struggling thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, which has not just caused a health crisis of an astounding scale, but an economic and employment crisis of previously unimaginable proportions.

“I haven’t worked for a year and a half,” Tina Arena tells Stellar on Sunday. Her last major job was playing in the musical Evita at the Sydney Opera House in 2018.

“This is a very serious thing for me. I’ve got a mortgage to pay. I had to tell the bank I need to freeze my loan, I can’t pay right now.”

Amidst the hardship, the entertainer knows she is "not alone". She is one of millions of Australians who have lost their jobs in the midst of the pandemic that is sweeping the globe.
