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

1. Um. Meghan Markle is about to return to the big screen and the Queen shan’t be impressed.

Meghan Markle is about to return to our TV screens in a rather risque role, after Artist Rights Distribution picked up the rights to the 2011 film The Boys and Girls Guide to Getting Down, which the now-royal starred in at the time.

As reported by the Hollywood Reporter, the film is about a group of friends in their twenties as they have a night out in LA. The company apparently plans to release the movie some time this year, along with other films they have also gained exclusive rights to, including Cargo.

Markle plays a party girl named Dama in the film and in one scene can reportedly be seen snorting a substance. Which we can’t imagine will make the Queen overly pleased.

The film is far-removed from the Duchess of Sussex's paralegal Rachael Zane in Suits, a role she was predominantly known for before dating Prince Harry.

After seven seasons in the very successful series Suits, Markle made the decision to leave the acting gig right before she and Prince Harry became engaged.

2. Celeste Barber just trolled Celeste Barber in a hilarious Instagram post.

Nobody is safe when it comes to who Celeste Barber chooses to make fun of. Not even Celeste Barber herself.

The comedian's latest #CelesteChallengeAccepted on Instagram is perhaps her funniest yet, as she mocks a photoshoot she recently did for InStyle.

Known for parodying absurd celebrity photographs, the social media sensation recreated her own image - trading a glamorous frock for a towel dress, and heels for crocs.

3. The cast of last year's MAFS have reunited and we have so many questions.


A year from their controversial season, select members of the 2018 cast of Married at First Sight, and Love Island's Eden Dally (???) got together for a catch up at Sydney's iconic Opera Bar.

In attendance were Dean Wells, Troy Delmege, his TV wife Ashley Irvin, Gabrielle Bartlett and Alycia Galbraith.

According to Instagram, Dean brought back his rap/DJ persona - Visionz - which approximately nobody asked for, Troy and Ashley had a very cordial catch-up, and while this has yet to be confirmed, we're guessing Troy brought things to an awkward close when he left the table to vigorously brush his teeth.

This will never get old.

4. Will Smith has trolled Kanye over his ridiculously over the top Valentine Day's tribute to Kim.


Taking Valentine's Day to a completely unnecessary level, Kanye West's gift to wife Kim Kardashian involved imprisoning legendary musician Kenny G in a room of vases filled with singular long stemmed roses.

He was then forced to play his clarinet, before being allowed to leave... or something like that.

The romantic gesture has earned the couple a bit of well-intentioned trolling from their celebrity friends, including Chrissy Teigen who was everyone when she enquired about Kenny's wellbeing.

"Did Kenny have to stand there while the flowers were being set up? How did he get out? We need more info on Kenny!!!" she tweeted.

However it was Will Smith's burn that had us snorting. The 50-year-old actor duplicated Kim's original photo but photoshopped himself from his Fresh Prince of Bel-Air days, complete with a saxophone and the caption, "Ye- I'm available next year."

Well played Will Smith, well played.

5. There will be someone missing from Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga's Oscars' performance.

It was Jackson Maine's honeyed and husky voice, along with his vulnerability and adoration for struggling singer Ally, that made us fall in love with him in A Star Is Born.

So when The Academy announced that actors Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga would be performing at this year's Oscars, we were bloody excited.

Any chance to see the onscreen couple perform live is met with elation from fans, who also kinda want to the pair to get together in real life.

But in a recent appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Cooper admitted a very crucial person will be missing from the performance at the Oscars.

Jackson Maine.

"He’s gone, I’m not going to try and get him back. But I will be me singing,” Cooper told the talk show host.

"But hopefully – my hope is that – I fly back to LA and we start rehearsing – I hope to be present and enjoy it and hopefully people love the song sung that night."
