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

1. Oh. Details from MAFS’ Stacey’s past have been uncovered and we never would have guessed she had a ‘bikie’ past.

Last night on Married At Frist Sight, we met lawyer-to-be, Stacey and businessman/baby shark fanatic, Michael. And let’s just say it didn’t exactly… go well.

But now it turns out there’s more to Stacey than we first thought.

Before appearing on the show, Stacey was previously engaged to a Rebels ‘bikie’ boss, named Shane Michael Smith.  Yep, we’re just as surprised as you are.

The couple share two sons, Kruz, two, and Kosta, four, who we met last night on the show.

Stacey told the Daily Mail she met Smith when she was in her early twenties. They split in July 2017.

“We met when I was very young, fell in love quickly and then tried to make it work for the kids,” she told the publication.

“It was a civil break-up. He’s an amazing dad and I have no regrets.”

Smith, on the other hand, may have one regret. According to the Daily Mail, he still has Stacey’s name tattooed on his hand next to Kosta’s name and birth date.

Yikes. 

We’ll just have to wait and see what happens between Stacey and Michael when Married At Frist Sight returns tonight at 7.30 pm on Channel Nine.

2. There are rumours Dr Chris Brown is the next Bachelor and is it too late to sign up?

Yes, we know. Every year, a few months before the Bachelor is announced, Dr Chris Brown’s name comes up.

But this time, we could actually be in luck and have ourselves a hunky man who loves animals on our screen (yes, please).

According to an inside source, the 41-year old Bondi Vet and host of I’m a Celeb..has been in serious negotiations with Channel 10 over the position, with the network apparently offering him big bucks.

The source has said, it’s “100 per cent solid. Ten is throwing serious, serious figures his way to be the Bachelor this time around and he is said to be seriously considering it this time.”

The source continues to share how successful the season would be with him, but we already knew that.

“Everyone at Ten believes he would be our highest rating season ever – they have all wanted him for ages,” he said.

Although Brown is known to be a very private person, it has been suggested that his breakup with rumoured girlfriend, Liv Phyland, was the catalyst for his sudden interest in the reality TV show.

Honestly, can he just say yes already?

3. Andy Lee had the most gracious response for people who say Hamish is funnier than he is.

Hamish Blake and Andy Lee might well be Australia’s most successful comedic duo, but for some time now, certain people have been in a debate over which one is funnier.

Hamish or Andy?

Because we simply can’t just accept that both fellas are terrific in their own right.

Despite the pair always working brilliantly together, some people feel Hamish is perhaps the more humorous of the two.

In recent days, Lee appeared on the A Life Of Greatness podcast, where host Sarah Grynberg asked him how he felt about this.

He shared, “I think he’s funny as well. I also think he’s funnier than me.”

He continues to clarify that despite one being funnier than the other, they have always worked well as a pair.

“The difference is saying: Is Hamish the funnier one? I would agree. (But) is he the only funny one? No.

“A laugh for the team, whether it’s a laugh for Hamish or a laugh for me, is a laugh for the team. It’s all bundled into one for me. It doesn’t worry me at all.”

4. It’s not official yet, but Kate and Wills are apparently planning to visit bushfire-affected regions in Australia.

Dust off your crowns, because Kate Middleton and Prince William are reportedly coming to Australia for a special royal tour - their first since 2014.

On Tuesday, Sydney Morning Herald broke the news that the couple were planning a tour down under to visit fire-affected regions after Australia suffered through its worst bushfire season in our history.

The couple - who are yet to confirm the news - will be visiting coastal towns in New South Wales and Victoria, it's reported. Prime Minister Scott Morrison is due to issue the couple a formal invitation this week, the publication added.

If true, we cannot wait. And we hope they bring their adorable three children: Prince George, six, Princess Charlotte, four, and Prince Louis, who is nearly two.

5. "You’re already teaching us."Penn Badgley and  Kirke are expecting their first child together.

This post contains references to pregnancy loss, and may be triggering to some readers.

Penn Badgley and his wife Domino Kirke are expecting their first child together.

Posting to Instagram, the You star’s wife of three years shared that she was expecting after experiencing two miscarriages in a row.

After two miscarriages in a row we were ready to call it. I stopped trusting my body and started to accept the fact that I was done,” Kirke shared on Instagram.

“As a birth attendant, I’ve seen and heard it all. It takes everything I’ve got to detach lovingly from the losses I’ve been present for and be in my own experience,” she added.

“When I was pregnant at 25, I knew nothing. I had no community. I dove in blissfully unaware about birth and its mysteries.

“Now, with 10 years worth of experience to pull from, I treasure my birth community and the knowledge I have. You’re already teaching us how to stay in the day in a way we’ve never had to, little one. Thank you.”

On the road again... pregnancy after loss is whole other thing. After two miscarriages in a row we were ready to call it. I stopped trusting my body and started to accept the fact that I was done. As a birth attendant, I’ve seen and heard it all. It takes everything I’ve got to detach lovingly from the losses I’ve been present for and be in my own experience. When I was pregnant at 25, I knew nothing. I had no community. I dove in blissfully unaware about birth and its mysteries. Now, with 10 years worth of experience to pull from, I treasure my birth community and the knowledge I have. You’re already teaching us how to stay in the day in a way we’ve never had to, little one. Thank you.

Badgley married Domino Kirke, the sister of Girls star Jemima Kirke (who plays Jess on the show), in 2017.

Although the beginning of the couple’s relationship was kept relatively quiet, it’s believed the pair started dating back in 2014, three years before they wed.
