It’s all over, folks

After just a few months together, Dani Dyer and Jack Fincham have called it quits.

The couple, who met on Love Island during the summer and warmed the heart of every viewer watching, have made the decision to part ways.

Announcing the split on her Instagram story last night, Dani wrote: “Jack and I have sadly decided to part ways.”

It’s been an incredible six months, and we will always have a place in our hearts for each other, but we’ve sadly come to the realisation that it’s not meant to be long term.

Finishing with a nod to the future, Dani added: “We both plan to stay friends. I hope you’ll all understand.”

Apparently, the couple have struggled to maintain their relationship under the glare of the media spotlight, with conflicting schedules often throwing a spanner in the works.

Interestingly, the news coincided with the announcement that Dani’s autobiography will be released in April of next year. Just sayin’…

Kevin Hart will NOT be hosting next year’s Academy Awards

Just days after it was announced that Kevin Hart was to host next year’s Academy Awards, the comic has made the decision to step aside.

It all kicked off when the Academy requested that the comic apologise for homophobic remarks he had made in the past in order to ensure the security of his position – a request that Kevin was not willing to fulfill.

“So I just got a call from The Academy. That call basically said, ‘Kevin, apologize for your tweets or we’re going to have to move on and find another host.’”

The reason that I passed is I’ve addressed it several times. That’s not the first time this has come up. I’ve addressed it. I’ve spoken on it. I’ve said where the rights and wrongs were. I’ve said who I am now versus who I was then. I’ve done it. I’m not gonna continue to go back and tap into the days of old when I’ve moved on.

Kevin said he was thankful for the opportunity but he was going to ‘stand his ground’.

Later, Kevin confirmed he would no longer be hosting the world-famous ceremony.

“I’m sorry that I hurt people,” Kevin wrote in a follow-up tweet.

“I am evolving and want to continue to do so. My goal is to bring people together not tear us apart. Much love & appreciation to the Academy. I hope we can meet again.”

Ariana Grande talked about the ‘best and worst year’ of her life.

Last night Ariana Grande won the Woman of the Year Award at Billboard’s Women in Music event.

The 25-year-old singer gave an emotional speech where she said that the past year had been one of the best of her career and the worst of her life.

I’m not saying that for sympathy, I’m just saying that because I think a lot of people would look at someone in my position right now…and think, ‘She’s really got her s— together,’ Ya know? Like, ‘She’s really on it.’ Like, ‘She’s got it all. I do, but as far as my personal life goes, I really have no idea what the **k I’m doing so yeah, it’s been a very conflicting one.

The singer extended her support to anyone struggling, adding: “I just want to say that if you’re someone out there who has no idea what this next chapter is going to bring, you’re not alone in that.”

Holding back tears, Ariana said she’s looking forward to embracing the future.
