Many were shocked and dismayed at the news that Stephen Fry has been diagnosed with prostate cancer.

The legendary entertainer revealed he has been battling the disease for the last twelve months.

Fry, 60, has been one of Britain’s most beloved performers for decades.

There are few who will not have seen him on their TV, read his books or heard his distinctive voice on the popular Harry Potter audiobook series.

Born in Hampstead, London, Fry got his start in the entertainment industry while a student at Cambridge where he joined amateur theatrical company the Footlights where he met Hugh Laurie and Emma Thompson.

He and Laurie established themselves as a comedy duo in the 1980s, appearing on several TV programmes before landing their own sketch show, A Bit Of Fry & Laurie.

The Londonder expanded his repertoire by appearing in a number of dramatic productions as well, many of them BBC adaptations of plays and books like The Common Pursuit and In The Red.

In 2003, he began hosting the game show QI, helping it to become the most viewed show on BBC Four before he departed in 2016.

A jack of all trades, Fry always had other projects on the go throughout his varied career.

He has appeared in several documentaries and factual programmes. His first, Stephen Fry: The Secret Life of a Manic Depressive, aired in 2006 and won an Emmy Award.

It explored the comedian’s struggles with a mild form of bipolar disorder, cyclothymia.

He also hosted Stephen Fry: In America in 2008 which saw him travel to all 50 US states and Stephen Fry: Out There in 2013, which explored various attitudes towards homosexuality in various parts of the world.

Fry has had numerous roles on stage throughout his career. The first play he wrote, Latin! or Tobacco and Boys won the Fringe First Prize at the Edinburgh Festival in 1980 and he has also authored three novels.

His wit has made him an in-demand host and Fry has hosted the Bafta awards an impressive 12 times, his most recent turn being in 2017.

Fry, who was previously in a 15-year relationship with Daniel Cohen until 2010, married comedian Elliott Spencer, 30, in 2015.

The pair are thought to have been dating for a year before they tied the knot, with Spencer accompanying Fry to various events throughout 2014.

The marriage made headlines after it was announced, due to their 30-year age difference.

Plus-size model Felicity Hayward encourages women to talk more openly about good sex

Felicity Hawyard is continuing her world domination, and this time she’s convincing us to talk more openly about sex.

The plus-sized model spoke to Cosmopolitan about the importance of sex and love, and what makes her feel sexy as a plus-sized woman.

‘I’m a woman now, I’m pushing 30, and I’m so open to talk about sex with all my friends,’ she said.

‘I remember being a teenage girl and it kind of being a bit of a taboo to talk about sex, and it was seen as promiscuous and slutty, and it wasn’t seen as the normal thing to speak about.

‘Because all you were to talk about was makeup or clothes and music and everything when it was fine for boys to talk about [sex]. But for girls to talk about sex it was seen as slutty. That’s not fair.’

The 29-year-old, who appeared in black lingerie for the conversation with the publication, also spoke about the need to love yourself before you can love anyone else, adding that she feels sexiest when she’s around people that make her feel comfortable.

And this girl knows the right way to love her curves, revealing her favourite part of her body is her bum, despite the fact that growing up it wasn’t seen as a positive.

She said: ‘When I was younger, it wasn’t seen as a good thing to have a big bum.

‘I’ve just completely learned to love my curves and my body — because it’s me at the end of the day, and nothing’s really going to change.’

The body positive influencer and model previously wrote a piece for Metro.co.uk’s Each Body’s Ready campaign on how she learnt to love every inch of her body, including her stretchmarks.

It was at 18 when I remember seeing these cherry red marks on my stomach. I tried to rub the marks off thinking they were from my jeans being too tight, but it wasn’t, it was stretch marks. I was mortified. I had never seen stretch marks growing up, not on my mum, not on the TV or in films, I thought there was something wrong with me.

‘Fast forward six years and I am dancing in a pub in East London to Diana Ross and I get approached by a casting director asking if I would model in a photo shoot as Anna Nicole Smith.

‘Little did I know it was going to be shot by Miles Aldridge and shortly after my career as a ‘plus size’ model would kick off and change my life.’

Hayward, who is a size 18, calls herself curvy and doesn’t apologise for it. She told Metro.co.uk: ‘If I have to describe myself, I say I am a confident, curvy, independent badass’.

Erm, Felicity for president please?

KSI has confirmed he’s currently in negotiations about arranging a boxing match with Logan Paul.

Rumours have been swirling the two YouTubers will fight it out in the ring, with Logan Paul recently agreeing to fight him even though no concrete details have been confirmed.

It appears motions are certainly being made to making the match a reality however, with KSI, real name Olajide William ‘JJ’ Olatunji, posting a video addressing the speculation.

Speaking in his latest vlog, KSI said: ‘So obviously this has gone out of control and out of proportion so I wanted to make a video to clear things up.

‘First of all it is not confirmed, it is not 100 per cent. So everyone calm the fuck down, okay?

‘Yes, me and Logan are in talks. I guess my team and his team are in talks. That doesn’t mean it is 100 per cent or it is confirmed, that just means we’re talking that’s it.’

The YouTuber stated he’ll definitely be fighting someone in August, with the YouTuber set to be definitely announced on March 18 when the voting deadline ends.

Jack Whitehall refuses to talk to Perrie Edwards’ boyfriend Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain over Arsenal move at Brits

Jack Whitehall still isn’t over Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s decision to quit Arsenal.

Alex made the decision to move on from the club last August, opting to take up a position with Liverpool instead. Six months later and Jack is still sore about it.

The comedian was presenting the Brit awards 2018 when he popped over to Little Mix’s table to have a chat.

‘You’re all here on date night with your boyfriends,’ he said as he motioned towards their men. But then his grudge against Alex bubbled up as he jokingly added: ‘I’m not actually on speaking terms with Alex so Perrie could you tell him I’m extremely upset at him for leaving Arsenal.’

Perrie pulled a face and gave her boyfriend a loving pat on the back as Alex burst out laughing at the quip.

Jack didn’t stop there, as he also went in on Jesy Nelson before he left the girls to get back to their champagne.

He said: ‘Last month you hit three billion views on YouTube and only 2 billion of those are from people trying to watch you do a Jamaican accent Jesy.’

While Jesy’s bandmates Jade Thirwall, Perrie Edwards and Leigh-Anne Pillock all looked shocked and then tried their hardest to stop themselves from laughing, Jesy looked less than pleased with the remark.

Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield ‘wasted’ at the Brit Awards

Holly Willoughby and Philip Schofield were up their old tricks again at last night’s Brit Awards.

The king and queen of morning TV were called out by host Jack Whitehall for being ‘already wasted’ during the ceremony.

Viewers saw the camera pan out in the audience to reveal Holly playfully brushing her This Morning co-star’s hair, before grimacing at the camera.

Jack said: ‘Look at these two, already wasted,’ before advising the playful pair to ‘pace themselves’ next time.

Holly and Phil are known for knocking back a glass or two whenever they attend an awards ceremony together and the audience certainly seemed to appreciate it.

One Twitter user wrote: ‘I love how everyone takes the Micky of how much they drink on every awards show.’

Another added: ‘Looking forward to seeing them hanging out there asses again lol! Best couple on TV and won’t ever be replaced in my life time! Love em! X.’

The pair’s awards show tirades have become the stuff of legend.

They previously hosted an episode of This Morning straight after partying the night away at the National Television Awards in 2016.

Still wearing the same outfit from the night before, they threw caution to the wind and presented the show anyway while looking ever so slightly hungover – if only all of us could get away with this at our jobs.

They had gotten a better hold of themselves by the 2018 NTAs however and managed to change their clothes before they made it into the ITV studio, after This Morning won for Daytime TV Show.

Still a bit worse for wear, they climbed into bed by the end of the broadcast and called it a day.

Last night’s Brits had few surprises when it came to the awards, but viewers were surprised by Cheryl and Liam Payne’s very candid admission about their ‘safe word’ in the bedroom.

The pair were asked if they had a safe word by host Jack Whitehall and while Liam played coy and kept his mouth shut, Cheryl piped up and said it was ‘Don’t stop.’

Whatever floats your boat guys.

Ellie Goulding shocked commuters as she casually took the London Underground ahead of walking the red carpet at the Brit Awards 2018

The 31-year-old graced rush-hour commuters in London with her presence as she made her way to the O2 arena for the annual ceremony on Wednesday.

Ellie was snapped by shocked fans taking the Jubilee line as she chatted away with fellow passengers on the train.

We love how down to earth Ellie is though, because as soon as she hopped off the train at North Greenwich station she looked every inch the A-lister in her red puffed sleeve dress.

Ellie wasn’t the only one who turned heads when walking the red carpet.

Music’s best and brightest carried white roses to the 2018 Brit Awards on Wednesday night, to symbolise their support for the Times Up movement.

Following in the footsteps of those at the Grammys, the likes of Ed Sheeran, Dua Lipa and Paloma Faith carried long-stemmed roses as they walked the red carpet at the annual music event taking place at the O2.

Many others meanwhile wore a white rose pin to share their support.

The demonstration comes after stars wore black to the Golden Globes and the Baftas, and British actresses and those in the industry kicked off a new fund similar to Times Up which aims to create a network of expert advice and support, and to provide access to legal support for anyone subjected to sexual violence and abuse at work.

Led by Gemma Arterton, the letter was also signed by Carey Mulligan, Rebel Wilson, Emilia Clarke and Olivia Colman, and it calls for an end to harassment and abuse due to an ‘imbalance of power’ across all industries.
