Olly Murs has been 'secretly dating' Melanie Sykes for almost a year now... it's the Dredge

All the day’s celebrity dirt.

Nobody saw this coming, but it’s been revealed today that Olly Murs has been dating TV presenter Melanie Sykes for the last year.

As The Sun reports via a “source” today:

Mel loves a younger man and really fell for Olly when he got into shape late last year.
They were initially introduced through a mutual friend. They started texting for ages and some of the messages ended up getting quite saucy.

Olly, 33, and Melanie, 47, have “bonded over a mutual love of keeping fit” – and people have went back digging through their social media and found this picture of them out together in April:

So the story checks out.

This source – who speaks like a cross between Danny Dyer and The Rock – also said:

They were bonding over her fitness programme. He was a fan of her gym selfies and thought that she had an amazing body.
Olly was getting in shape at the time and Mel really loved his new fit bod.

Good luck to them.

The moment Kim Kardashian discovered she’d been accused of blackface has aired on Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

During the summer, she released her cosmetics line KKW Beauty and one of the press shots was decidedly dark compared to her normal skin tone:

Some tweets went viral accusing her and the brand of employing “blackface”:

She apologised at the time, but an episode of KUWTK on Sunday showed what it was like when she discovered the allegations.

Buzzfeed have the quotes:

She met with her digital officer and decided to pull them:

She took the responsibility on herself at the end too:

Nicky Byrne has been speaking about the sad loss of his family dog Keano.

He posted a tweet last night saying goodbye to the beloved pooch:

Speaking on 2FM this morning, he said:

He’s gone to doggy heaven. I have to say, for me obviously, there will never be another dog like him.
