Speaking with UK parents and caretakers associated with the children’s charity, WellChild, on a virtual meeting, Harry shared that despite the uncertain, trying times, his family have been focusing on the positives.

“There’s a hell of a lot of positives that are happening at the same time and being able to have family time — so much family time — that you almost think, ‘Do I feel guilty for having so much family time?’” he said.

“You’ve got to celebrate those moments where you are just on the floor rolling around in hysterics.

“Inevitably, half an hour later, maybe a day later, there’s going to be something that you have to deal with and there’s no way you can run away from it,” Harry continued.

When asking how he is coping, he said, “Not too bad. I think it’s certainly strange times — everyone is experiencing the same thing in a very unique way.

“Of course, there’s that fear of what might happen, but there’s so much that’s out of our control and all of a sudden we’ve realised how small we are in the grand scheme of things.”

The Duke of Sussex, who has been associated with WellChild now for over a decade, was also asked whether he and Meghan are planning for more children anytime soon.

And he replied in a joking manner, “Having one kid at 11 months old is enough!”

2. Um. MAFS Hayley and Mikey may now be feuding and what is going on.

No matter how hard we try and move on from Married at First Sight, we continue to be roped back in with new drama!

Today, it’s a potential feud erupting between Hayley Vernon and Mikey Pembroke.

It all began when Mikey uploaded a strange video of himself to his Instagram, which he captioned, “In the age of TikTok, how about you voice it ya self. By popular demand let me introduce Little Jimmy.”

The video showed Mikey sitting on his bed talking directly to the camera.

He said, “Look I’m going to be honest with you, it’s not an ideal situation. I’ve had a little accident in bed. I’ve had a few bad dreams about a few things and I’ve done a little poo on the bed.” While putting on a child-like voice.

And Hayley commented beneath it, “ACTOR! I KNEW IT!”

From what it looks like, it’s meant to be a funny video, like plenty of odd TikTok videos trending right now. So we’re going to assume that Hayley and Mikey were joking.

But honestly, with this lot, we’ll never know.

3. “I may need to borrow some sperm.” Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson want a sibling for True.

Before life changed as we know it, news of Khloe Kardashian requesting to borrow some sperm from her cheating ex-partner, basketball player Tristan Thompson, would've shocked us.

Now, it kind of sounds fairly... practical?

In a recent episode of the reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians - which the Kardashian/Jenner family undoubtedly use to control their own news stories by airing information that could otherwise be leaked - Khloe and Tristan briefly discussed the idea of giving their two-year-old daughter True a sibling, People reports.

The conversation, which took place over FaceTime, came up as Tristan sorted through some of True's toys. After suggesting they not throw them out, the 29-year-old Cleveland Cavaliers player asked Khloe about the prospect of having another daughter.

To which she replied, "Who is having another girl with you? I might need to borrow some sperm or get some from you."

Currently, the exes co-parent, with Khloe flying with True from LA to Cleveland so she can spend time with her father. The couple broke up in 2019 after Tristan infamously cheated on Khloe with Khloe's sister Kylie Jenner's ex-best friend Jordyn Woods.

Ah, they were happier times, weren't they?

In news that will bring a bit of brightness to your day, actress Lindsay Lohan really loves the idea of doing a Mean Girls sequel.

In a new video interview on Lights Out with David Spade, the 33-year-old said she's looking to get back into acting, having spent the last few years in and out of rehab struggling with addiction. Most recently, she was a judge on The Masked Singer Australia.

"I should probably get back to doing movies at some point... I think I was hanging on to [Mean Girls] for a really long time,” Lindsay said.

"I wanted to come back with a Mean Girls 2. To work with Tina [Fey], and the whole crew again, and Mark Waters. That was really what I wanted. I was excited to do that. But that’s all in their hands really. So that would definitely be an exciting thing."

Sounds like someone needs to get on the blower and convince the likes of Tina Fey and former cast members Rachel McAdams and Amanda Seyfried to get on board. Let us know how you go, yeah?

5. "I was completely f**ked up." How Jock Zonfrillo went from rock bottom to Australia's favourite chef.

MasterChef judge Jock Zonfrillo grew up in Glasgow in the 1980s, falling into a life of drug addiction, homelessness, and poverty, before working his way up in the food industry.

He credits Marco Pierre White for saving his life, after the chef gave him a job at the age of 17.

It turns out he was pretty good at this whole cooking thing, and is now a decorated chef, TV presenter, and philanthropist, who we (Australia), get to call our own.

At just 11 years old, Jock had already fallen in love with kitchens, and he worked as a dishwasher part-time after school during his early teen years.

But when he was 15, Jock tried drugs for the first time, and within two years he was a heroin addict.

As he told News.com.au, he was sacked from his job at one Michelin star restaurant in Chester, England,  after a foul mouthed outburst when he was 17, and was left broke, homeless and strung out.

That’s where Pierre White stepped in.

After turning up to his London kitchen begging for work, the highly accoladed chef decided to give him a chance.

"He saw something of me in him or him in me. But I went there completely naked. Stripped of everything. I was both a drug addict and I had no expectations of my abilities as a cook. I was lost. I mean, really, completely, f---ed up," Jock told GoodFood in 2018.

In fact if it wasn't for food, Jock says he would be dead.

"The only thing that will stop you from doing heroin is something that's more compelling than heroin. And when you're an addict, there's very little that's more compelling than doing that drug. Luckily for me, I somehow fluked upon cooking," he told the publication.
