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

1. “We were losing money.” Yvie Jones has shared the difficult reality of appearing on Gogglebox.

Late last year, Gogglebox fan favourite Yvie Jones and Angie Kent left the reality show.

Now, speaking to TV Tonight, Yvie, who was the runner-up on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here, has shared why the pair made the difficult decision to leave the show.

“We couldn’t endorse anything, we couldn’t tag anyone [on social media], there were no affiliations. I respect that, but cover us financially,” she explained.

“There’s no appearance fee for being on the show, they don’t pay you – you get a location fee. Your house gets the fee,” she added.

“We were losing money.”

After receiving offers elsewhere, the pair decided to leave the show.

“We were getting offers we weren’t able to take. It was extremely restrictive,” Yvie said. “It would have been fine had we been remunerated.”

While Yvie regularly appears on The Project and Studio 10, Angie is set to be the next be the next Bachelorette.

2. Um, sorry but the Spice Girls tour to Australia isn’t actually confirmed yet.

Over the weekend, the unthinkable happened.

During the Spice Girls’ final show of their 13-date UK and European tour at London’s Wembley Stadium, Mel B yelled to the crowd, “We will see you in February in Australia.”

Understandably, fans were stoked.

But this morning, Mel B backtracked on the announcement.

Speaking to 2Day FM’s Grant, Ed and Ash this morning, Mel B admitted that the tour isn’t actually confirmed.

“You know me by now,” she told the hosts. “I always say the Spice Girls are going to continue and continue and tour the whole world.

“My thing is, and I’ve got a bee in my bonnet about it, is that we need to come to Australia first out the gate. I announced it on stage, yes, without everybody else signing off 100 per cent, but I figured if I put it out there maybe it’s going to happen.”

The singer added that while her bandmates are not fully on board with the idea of an Australian tour, she’s determined to “make sure it actually does happen”.

Well, let’s keep our fingers crossed.

3. Literally all the pics of Sophie Turner’s wild bachelorette party.

Here’s the tea. Sophie Turner has had a wild bachelorette party even though we all thought she not-so-secretly married Joe Jonas in Las Vegas last month.

It would appear the bachelorette party is coming after the Vegas wedding, but before an ~actual~ wedding.

We’re obsessed nonetheless. Let’s begin with the details.

The bachelorette party reportedly began in London at a Jonas Brothers’ concert. The group of girls, which included Sophie Turner’s on-screen sister Maisie Williams, then boarded a private jet to Berlin, Prague, and Benidorm and Spain.

Based on the pics, they were probably sipping Vodka Cruisers the whole damn time.

We can’t keep up but we also wish we were invited, so we found some Instagrams that will help us live vicariously through them.

Karl Stefanovic had been separated from his ex-wife Cassandra Thorburn for five months when he met his wife Jasmine Yarbrough at a Sydney party.

Speaking to Vogue Brides, the 35-year-old fashion designer explained that she had been living abroad in London and New York for seven years, and hadn't returned home once.

When in 2016 she finally made a trip home, she met Stefanovic, who at the time she believed would become a good friend.

"Karl and I had met through friends over the Christmas period when I was back from Los Angeles visiting family in 2016," she said.

"When we first met, I thought he was going to be such a good friend, because we just laughed all the time. He had me in fits of laughter all day!"

The former Today show host shares two sons, Jackson, 19, and River, 12, and one daughter Ava, 13, with Cassandra Thorburn.

5. The Voice is embroiled in a "cheating scandal" and excuse us while we cancel all future plans.

HUSH.

There’s a cheatin’ scandal on The Voice and it deserves our full attention.

At the centre of it is a gentleman named Denzel. On Sunday night, three members of Team Kelly performed in the Knockout round, which was made up of rapper Denzel, Elsa and Amanuael.

The way it works, for anyone who has somehow managed to miss the 106 hours of The Voice that screens during prime time every week in this country, is that the judge chooses a song for each of the contestants.

There's a cheating scandal and Boy George isn't happy.

Unlike the other contestants in the Knockout round, however, Kelly allowed Denzel to perform an original rap song.

When Denzel performed his original rap song, Boy George smelt injustice.

“It’s kind of naughty,” the 58-year-old said, arguing that there just wasn’t an “even playing field”.
