‘I’m a virgin and he’s a rock star’: Tallia Storm opens up about surprise ‘connection’ with Celebs Go Dating’s Muggy Mike

Is a shock romance on the cards?

Celebs Go Dating star Tallia Storm might be signed up to the agency but it seems that she’s already fallen for another celeb on the books – and it’s none other than Muggy Mike Thalassitis!

Yep, the 19-year-old admits she’s felt a ‘connection’ to Love Island’s Mike despite them being polar opposites, with Tallia revealing she’s a virgin who’s only kissed two boys whilst Mike is famed for his VERY flirty ways.

‘I feel like everyone knows it. Everyone says it,’ the singer confesses of their bond. ‘We are two completely different people. I’m like an angel and he’s a sinner. They say opposites attract and it’s quite literally that.

‘I’m plain Jane, don’t drink and am quite literally the Virgin Mary. I’ve only ever kissed two guys in my life.

‘I’m a virgin and he’s this insane rock and roll star. He’s got the charm and he knows how to woo a woman.’

In fact it’s 25-year-old Mike’s ‘bad boy’ persona that seems to have attracted Tallia and she confesses that they flirted ‘from day one’ of filming the series.

However, the rules of the programme mean that they’re not supposed to date each other whilst on the agency’s books – though Tallia seems hopeful of something happening afterwards.

‘The problem is there’s so much waiting time so in the waiting time we’re always together,’ she tells The Sun Online. ‘Technically we’re not allowed to and we’ve always made a joke about the fact that we can’t go on a date.

‘[But] after the show? Probably.’

Tallia might have had her hopes dashed now though as it’s been revealed since she made these comments that Mike has been on some cosy dates with Megan McKenna.

Mike admitted when quizzed about the rumours on Good Morning Britain earlier this week: ‘We did go on a date Valentine’s Day… that was our first date.

‘No one wants to be alone on that day.’

However, he remained coy about the future of the blossoming romance. Ooh, intriguing!

Meanwhile Tallia has found herself in the difficult position of being confronted by her ex Seb Morris since he signed up to agency, and viewers recently watched the pair awkwardly discuss their relationship history.

So is an unexpected romance on the cards for Tallia and Mike? We’ll be keeping our eyes peeled!

Is that Pete Wicks? Latest Survival Of The Fittest lad looks EXACTLY like TOWIE star

We had to double take…

So, while we’re all dreaming about long summer days and picnics in the park – Survival Of The Fittest is here to fill the LoveIsland-shaped-hole in our lives.

In case you haven’t been keeping up, the ITV2 show pits Girls and Boys against each other in a load of mental and physical challenges while they all compete to win a massive cash prize.

Survival Of The Fittest

In the latest dramatic episode, MEGA hunk Joel Bennett was the second lad to be booted off after failing to hit it off with his fellow stars.


But while we’re sad to see him go, it’s Joel’s replacement that has really got people talking as it turns out he looks exactly like our fave TOWIE boy Pete Wicks.

Welcome to the lodge, Tom Wilson

Tom Wilson looks like Pete Wicks

With his distinctive shoulder-length hair, HUGE tattoos and rugged facial hair, you can see what we mean about the similarities.

While 26-year-old Tom hasn’t got the same piercing blue eyes as Pirate Pete, he IS clearly a gym-goer like our Essex lad and works as a personal trainer in Nottingham.

If that wasn’t enough, the Survival Of The Fittest newbie also shares the reality star’s love of dogs, as he said before going on the show: ‘I’m going to miss my dog called Sammy. I’m not scared of anything in there but I will miss my dog.’ Spooky!

And like Pete – who dated TOWIE co-star Megan McKenna for a year – Tom is clearly a hit with the ladies as he also added: ‘I’m definitely open to love.

‘I’m looking for someone smaller than me who is cute looking. Everyone expects me to go for tall girls but I like a small girl to look after her.’

Speaking about what he’s not looking for, Tom added: ‘The type of girl who would be a nightmare would be someone who is two faced.

‘I like to be real with people so be real with me. I don’t like arrogance in a guy. I’m confident and people assume I’m arrogant, but I’m not.’

We’re predicting some TOWIE-style drama when Tom enters the Lodge…

What a transformation! See Little Mix’s BRIT Awards looks over the years

We need their entire wardrobe, now!

When it comes to fashion, the Little Mix ladies definitely know what they’re doing.

Whether it’s classy ballgowns or the sexiest of stage-show outfits – Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall always look 10/10. SLAYYY.

Little Mix

And it was no different this week as the girls took to the red carpet for the 2018 BRIT Awards wearing some incredible outfits.


The stunning foursome looked the ultimate girl squad as they complemented each other in black, khaki and white at the glitzy event.

Jade, 25, went for a sophisticated, black dress complete with spaghetti straps and a flowing skirt – which she also completed with a tiny white rose in support of the Times Up movement.

Meanwhile, pals Perrie, 24, and Leigh-Anne, 26, opted for white statement dresses as Pez rocked a see-through number and Leigh worked dressing-gown chic.

Essex star Jesy completed the line-up with her bold jumpsuit and platform heels. Amazing, right?

And the ladies are so fashion-forward that they even had their famous boyfriends dress up in coordinating outfits, with Jade’s BF – and The Struts bassist – Jed Elliott keeping it simple and opting for a black suit with white shirt and silky scarf.

Leigh-Anne’s footie star beau Andre Gray also complimented his lady with a black and white tracksuit.

But while we can’t get enough of the X Factor gals’ fashion statements, their style has changed a lot since they walked their first BRITs red carpet back in 2012.

So, let’s take a look back at their evolution in reverse…

This Morning’s Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield come under fire for ‘sexy vet comments’

Dr Evan definitely made a mark on ITV viewers

Following a big night at The BRIT Awards, Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield were on top form during Thursday’s This Morning. 

Seriously, we don’t know how they always manage to look so fresh.

Holly Willoughby

But while ITV viewers were impressed that the telly duo managed to make it to work on time, Holly and Phil found themselves at the centre of a Twitter row after the show was accused of having ‘double standards’.


It all started when hunky vet Dr Evan Antin was introduced during a segment about exotic animals. And it’s fair to say Twitter got a little (A LOT) hot under the collar.

Probably because he looks like a real life Clark Kent.

After chatting all things wildlife, Holly and Phil then finished their interview by reading out a few messages that had been sent in by fans pointing out how easy-on-the-eye 31-year-old Evan is.

Comments along the lines of ‘OMG he’s SO fit’ and ‘Why does my vet not look like that?!’…

Unfortunately, this didn’t go down well with a few viewers who took to Twitter to criticise This Morning for including the messages.

‘Interesting that they read out the “Phwoar” type messages because Dr Evan is a bloke, but imagine the backlash if a female vet got the same type of response …’, commented one.

While a second agreed: ‘Why is it ok for #ThisMorning to sexualise men, with the vet piece… Yet if it was a lady vet & men were texting in the same comments, they wouldn’t be read out’.

And a third added: ‘@thismorning Imagine men writing in things like that about a female vet?’.

Although the Canadian-born doctor is probably used to the attention by now, after he featured in People magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive issue in 2014 and was even given the prestigious title of ‘sexiest beast charmer’.

Evan’s also got a HUGE Instagram fanbase of 1million followers and regularly shares a load of adorable selfies with his animal clients.

Cute, or what?

Katie Price get hair-envy of daughter Princess’ INCREDIBLE locks

Long hair, don’t care

Katie Price is no stranger to rocking a wig or switching up her hairstyles, and the 39-year-old sent fans wild after she shared a picture of her daughter Princess’ amazing locks.

Taking to Instagram, the mum of five – to Harvey Price, 15, Junior Andre, 12, Princess Andre, 10, Jett Hayler, four, and Bunny Hayler, three – posted a photo, which showed of her daughter’s Rapunzel-like hair.

She simply captioned the picture: ‘That hair’ with love-struck eye and crown emojis.


Fans instantly rushed to comment on the photo, with many praising the youngster’s golden head of hair.

‘Gorgeous Beautiful hair. If anyone wants to cut it its because they are jealous! X’ one wrote.

‘Beautiful inside and out,’ another added.

‘Gorgeous, I’m sure she’s proud of her long locks,’ one said.

‘Amazing that’s how I hope my daughter’s hair grows,’ a fourth said.

However, others criticised the photo, as they called out Katie for not taking care of Princess’ hair, with one harshly writing: ‘It looks like rats tails.’

Others went as far as to warn Katie to ‘stop straightening’ her daughter’s naturally curly hair.

One wrote: ‘Stop straightening that beautiful hair, the ends are shot chick! Her curls were beautiful.’

Another said: ‘I had naturally curly hair til I thought straightening it was a good idea how wrong I was…killed the curl now I’m gutted & want my curls back.’

The photo is likely to ruffle Princess’ dad, Peter Andre’s feathers, as the 44-year-old has previously spoken out about his ex using flat irons on their daughter’s hair, saying, ‘She has naturally curly blonde hair which [was] straightened recently and it didn’t look good – she looked like a little troll.’

And back in 2010, the exes became embroiled in a hair war, after Pete had Princess’ locks trimmed.

But this wouldn’t be the first time Katie has come under fire for ‘making over’ her daughter.

Just last year, she was blasted by fans for allowing the youngster to wear ‘make up and fake nails’ after joking Princess was ‘ugly’ as a baby.

‘Too young for full hair and makeup,’ one follower commented on a photo of the youngster.

‘Very good but she must be 6 or 7 and way too much makeup with weirdos out there,’ another added.

The comments led Katie to eventually fess up, as she admitted: ‘You’re all right. I was in the wrong.’

So has Katie landed herself in trouble again?

Cheryl BLASTS ‘ludicrous’ claims that Liam Payne date night was a ‘stunt’ amid split rumours

Chezza’s furiously set the record straight

Cheryl Cole has angrily hit out at reports suggesting that her loved-up date night with Liam Payne at The BRITs was all a ‘STUNT’.

The couple put on a united front at the event on Wednesday night following recent rumours of an impending split, but there were claims on Thursday that ‘friends’ of Cheriam have said that their displays of affection weren’t real.

Now though Cheryl, 34, has taken to Twitter to furiously blast the allegations and urged everyone to focus on the fact that she opened her Cheryl’s Trust Centre – a collaboration with charity The Prince’s Trust – in Newcastle earlier this week instead.

‘Oh stop,’ the singer posted in an angry rant. ‘no one cares who’s been speculatively arguing or not in their relationships.

‘use your platform to put something productive in your columns. I opened a centre this week that could help thousands of youth!!!!’

She went on to add: ‘..Oh and your “stunt” theories are just ludicrous and a bit weird’

Since posting the messages Cheryl has received support from her fans who have urged her and Liam, 24, to ignore the speculation.

‘Amen! Say it louder some people don’t understand the love you share! They’re jealous because you two are a power couple!’ one follower commented, whilst another said: ‘They’re just jealous that you’re actually happy. so ridiculous’

It comes after Cheryl and Liam looked very cosy at the do despite recent speculation suggesting they could break up soon after apparently having ‘crisis talks’ about their two-year relationship.

The couple took a night off from parenting duties with their 11-month-old son Bear and looked pretty loved-up as they posed for pictures on the red carpet.

They also managed to shock host Jack Whitehall when he quizzed them on what their ‘safe word’ in the bedroom is, with Cheryl replying: ‘Don’t stop!’

And Liam appeared to make a dig at the recent speculation about his personal life when he filmed himself and Cheryl lip-synching to Justin Timberlake’s Filthy backstage, with the pair mouthing to the lyrics: ‘Haters gon’ say it’s fake… So real’

Yep, these two aren’t going to take the rumours lying down it seems!

AWKS! Celebs Go Dating viewers hit out at ‘rude’ Jade Jones after THIS ultimate snub

Awkward doesn’t even cover it…

Once again Celebs Go Dating has well and truly taken over our evenings, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

But while Love Island hunk Mike Thalassitis has definitely taken the crown as muggiest star on the books, it was Olympian Jade Jones who really got viewers talking on Wednesday evening.

Celebs Go Dating

The 24-year-old British taekwondo champ got sent on a double date with comedian and new BFF London Hughes, but things didn’t get off to a good star after Jade’s date Ben turned up with a hangover. Eeek.


Clearly struggling from the night before, the hunky golfer from Doncaster wasn’t exactly full of conversation and Jade was left feeling less than impressed.

But after a pep talk from London in the toilet, Jade then took the VERY bold decision to walk out on her dinner date with a camouflage coat over her head.

Yup, we’re just as confused as you…

Poor Ben couldn’t believe his eyes when he saw his date unsubtly shuffling out of the room, and later told the camera: ‘I might be a little hungover, but at the end of the day, I’m not that bad that I didn’t see Jade walk out of the restaurant with that camourflage jacket on her head.

‘I just thought it was really rude to just, you know.. up to sticks and walk off mid-date. I just thought it was something I’m not used to, to be fair. I just don’t think you should do it to anyone.’

It looks like viewers at home agreed with Ben, as one Twitter user blasted: I cannot believe how awful Jade has been. Her poor date seems lovely!’

While another wrote: ‘Lost a lot of respect for Jade after that date! No longer a fan. #CelebsGoDating’.

And they weren’t the only ones…

But there’s one man who was quick to stick up for Jade, and that’s our fave CGD smoothy Jonathan Lipnicki, who simply Tweeted: ‘It’s a TV show. .@jadejonestkd is an amazing person. Chill out’. AW!

What do you make of Jade’s swift exit? Let us know @CelebsNow.
