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

1. Congratulations! Home and Away’s Penny McNamee has welcomed a baby girl.

Actress Penny McNamee has just given birth to a baby girl, named Neve, with her husband Matt Tooker.

Neve is the couple’s second child together – they also have a three-year-old son Jack.

The Home and Away star shared the exciting news to Instagram today in a series of family photos from the hospital.

She captioned the post by thanking the staff at the Sydney Adventist Hospital for their “kindness and extraordinary care.”

Penny, who plays Summer Bay’s resident doctor Tori Morgan, has previously spoken to Mamamia on our podcast about what it’s like to work on Home and Away with a young child at home. You can listen her interview below.

She and husband Matt were married in 2009.

2. Why we didn’t get to see Jessika and Mick’s intense fight on Married at First Sight last night.

Last night, in a surprise to precisely no one, Mick and Jessika started to show signs they’ll be the next couple to call it quits on MAFS.

…Leaving Jessika free to pursue Tamara’s husband Dan, of course.

The couple erupted into an intense argument after Mick insulted each member of Jessika’s family, calling her dad a drunk and her brother a f*ckhead. And yeah, that’ll do it.

But while we all saw the aftermath of his harsh review of her loved ones, we didn't actually get to see the real argument, and now we know why.

As reported by news.com.au, the fight happened while the crew was on its way to film the couple and didn't they know that's not allowed.

All fighting must be done in PUBLIC, PLEASE.

“They had the actual convo before the crew arrived,” a production source said.

How convenient...

The source added that Jess didn’t appear to get upset about Mick’s words until the crew got there.

“She only cracked it once the cameras were rolling,” she revealed.

Verrrry interesting.

We can't wait to see how it all unfolds tonight.

3. Maisie Williams opens up about the Game of Thrones scene that left her “broken”.


There's just a few weeks until Game of Thrones returns to our screens and we cannot contain our excitement.

But for the actors of the fantasy drama series, the release of the eighth and final season will probably come as a huge relief.

According to actress Maisie Williams, who plays Ayra Stark on the show, filming for the final season has been incredibly "physically draining".

"Nothing can prepare you for how physically draining it is," she told Entertainment Weekly.

"It's night after night, and again and again, and it just doesn't stop... there are moments where you're just broken as a human and just want to cry."

Eek.

Maisie's co-star, Kit Harington AKA Jon Snow, had a similar experience on set.

"Everyone was broken at the end," he told GQ Australia. "I don't know if we were crying because we were sad it was ending or if we were crying because it was so f**king tiring. We were sleep deprived."

4. “I’m shocked.” Jackie O has been inundated with X-rated messages since her split with husband.

Several months on from her split from her husband Lee Henderson, Jackie O has shared what her life has been like since ending their 15 year marriage – and it's safe to say it's been... interesting.

Speaking to her co-host Kyle Sandilands on their breakfast radio show on KIIS FM, the newly-single 44-year-old admitted that she's received hundreds of direct messages on Instagram from her admirers.

"I'm shocked at some of these DMs," Kyle said.

Kyle then proceeded to read out a few of the messages, with some so explicit that the segment was eventually pulled from air.

"I honestly wouldn't say no if you came knocking on my door, sweetie," one message read.

"Hi Jackie, I can’t help but notice that you remind me of my little toe because... I know at some point in my life I’m gonna bang you on my coffee table," another said.

Yikes.

Understandably, Jackie O added that she probably won't be responding to any of these suitors and honestly, we don't blame her.

5. The Game of Thrones trailer just dropped and fans have a theory about Cersei.


Anticipation is building for season eight of Game of Thrones, which we now know is dropping onto our screens on 14 April.

We’ve invested almost a decade in this show. We’ve been waiting for more than 18 months for the conclusion. We will be tuning in to the final season no matter what.

And the people at HBO know this.

So in the latest Game of Thrones trailer, which dropped Wednesday morning, they’ve given very little away about the events of season eight.

Towards the end of the trailer, we see Cersei Lannister looking tearful, lonely and resigned to what we’re sure is her near-certain doom, and in her hand is a wine glass.

Drinking wine, as we all know, isn’t something pregnant women are likely to do. And yet Cersei claimed to be with child at the end of season seven.

Many fans guessed at the time that Cersei was lying about her pregnancy in an attempt to keep Jamie by her side – and her sipping from a wine glass in the trailer is a big hint that theory is correct.

You can read all about the fan theory right here.
