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

1. Georgia Love just interviewed her ex Matty J and his fiancee Laura Byrne, and yes she got some gossip.

Well. Running into your ex-partner is always awkward, especially if it’s with their new… fiancee.

On Saturday at Derby Day, former Bachelorette Georgia Love interviewed her runner up Matty J, who has since become engaged and had a baby with Laura Byrne – who he met on his own season of The Bachelor.

But despite what you might think, it wasn’t as awkward as it could have been.

The three were all smiles at the Derby Day festivities as they congratulated each other on their respective engagements, and Georgia and Laura showed off their rings.

Georgia, a journalist for 10Daily, interviewed the loved-up couple about their wedding plans.

“I threw out a spanner yesterday and I was thinking, ‘Hey, instead of having a big wedding, why don’t we have a surprise kind of engagement type party wedding…” said Matty.

“It’s not a surprise when you tell everyone right now,” Laura laughed.

Laura said they have no plans confirmed as of yet, saying: “One day it’s like, ‘Let’s just not get married and have a second baby’ and the next day it’s like, ‘Let’s have a massive wedding’ and then, ‘We’re eloping’ so who knows?”

The pair are also new parents to their first daughter, Marlie-Mae, who was born in June this year.

2. Married at First Sight‘s Jessika Power has addressed the nature of her relationship with former NRL player Sam Burgess.

Earlier this week, rumours were going around that Married at First Sight’s Jessika Power had been sending flirty messages with South Sydney Rabbitohs NRL star, Sam Burgess, who recently split from his wife, Phoebe.

Jessika even shared a video on Instagram, denying her and Sam were romantically involved. Alas, the video did little to quell the rumours.

But now, Jessika is setting the record straight.

Speaking to Daily Mail on Thursday, Jessika shared that she only messaged Sam to offer her support as a friend, nothing more.

"I let him know that I was here to chat and just to see if he was okay, so that was it," she told the publication.

"There's no dating going on there!"

She also offered words of support to Sam’s ex, Phoebe.

“I feel sorry for her," said Jessika. “I feel sorry for anyone that has a broken family or has things going on with somebody that they love with children involved.”

So there we have it, the pair are not in a relationship.

3. Leonardo DiCaprio just met and fan-girled over climate change activist Greta Thunberg.

Just as it looked like we couldn't love Leo more, he's taken to Instagram to praise climate change activist, Greta Thunberg.

The Oscar-winning actor and fellow environmentalist recently met with 16-year-old Greta for the first time.  And yep, there was a bit of fangirling going on... only it was coming from Leo.

On Friday, Leo posted a photo of himself and Greta on Instagram, calling her "a leader of our time".

"History will judge us for what we do today to help guarantee that future generations can enjoy the same livable planet that we have so clearly taken for granted. I hope that Greta’s message is a wake-up call to world leaders everywhere that the time for inaction is over. It is because of Greta, and young activists everywhere that I am optimistic about what the future holds," he captioned the post.

"It was an honour to spend time with Greta. She and I have made a commitment to support one another, in hopes of securing a brighter future for our planet."

There are few times in human history where voices are amplified at such pivotal moments and in such transformational ways – but @GretaThunberg has become a leader of our time. History will judge us for what we do today to help guarantee that future generations can enjoy the same livable planet that we have so clearly taken for granted. I hope that Greta’s message is a wake-up call to world leaders everywhere that the time for inaction is over. It is because of Greta, and young activists everywhere that I am optimistic about what the future holds. It was an honor to spend time with Greta. She and I have made a commitment to support one another, in hopes of securing a brighter future for our planet. #FridaysforFuture #ClimateStrike @fridaysforfuture

Leo is no stranger to campaigning for the environment, having used his 2016 Academy Awards acceptance speech to highlight the severity of global warming.

We're glad to see another vocal activist supporting Greta on her fearless mission to save the planet.

4. Kim Kardashian photoshopped daughter Chicago into the family's Halloween photos... because she was terrified of her dad's costume.

In true Kim Kardashian style, the reality TV star and entrepreneur has done some photoshopping on her Instagram.

Only this time, it was her daughter being photoshopped - for good reason too.

Kim Kardashian, 39, and her four children - North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm West - with Kanye West, 42, dressed up as the Flinstones for Halloween this year.

But daughter Chicago was terrified of her father's costume as Fred's dinosaur puppy, Dino. And honestly Chicago, we don't blame you.

Posting the photo to Instagram, the Kardashian sister wrote: "This family pic was such a challenge because Chicago was so scared of Dino!

"LOL We tried to explain and show her that it was just daddy but she didn’t get the concept yet! So shout out to the photographer for editing her in & making our family Flintstones dreams come true!"

In the bottom left hand corner, you can see little Chicago, indeed looking a little startled.
