Insta Creep: Mel B Was Not Impressed To Discover That Tesco Were Using Her In An Ad…
What all the celebs are up to on social, from A to Z listers.
In our gossip column, we indulge our nosiest desires and delve deep into what the celebs (and ‘celebs’) are doing on social media. Who’s tweeting and deleting? Who’s shady faving? Let’s find out.
Mel B spotted a Tesco ad that used her image without her knowledge or consent, and she was NOT impressed.
The Spice Girl snapped a photo of said ad and shared it on Instagram, along with the demand: “Can the CEO OF TESCO DAVE LEWIS PLEASE CONTACT ME URGENTLY. Thank you.”
None of this even makes sense. Why use a photo from 1997? Why mangle the lyrics of iconic bop Stop in such a way? What relevance do the Spice Girls have to Club Cards?!
According to Sky News, the retailer has pulled the ad following Mel’s complaint – a spokesperson said:
Here at Tesco we are really big fans of Mel B and were excited to feature her photo in our campaign. We had authorisation to use this image, but we’re sorry Mel B is unhappy so we’ve stopped using it.
Mel! The call seems to be coming from inside the house. Lock down the use of your image STAT.
TI’s daughter Deyjah Harris has unfollowed her dad on Instagram after he told the world that he has her hymen checked every year to see if she’s still a virgin.
The rapper made the truly disgusting comments on a podcast last week, boasting about how he pressured his 18-year-old daughter to allow her doctor to share her medical information with him.
It was all kinds of messed up, and the internet responded accordingly – the hosts of the podcast in question even apologised for their reactions to his story:
TI hasn’t apologised though, and it appears poor Deyjah is rightly upset about the whole thing. She has unfollowed her father and other family members on Twitter and Instagram, and reportedly liked tweets calling her dad’s comments ‘controlling’.
She has every right to feel that way, and to want to get as far away as possible from anyone who allowed that to happen. Stay strong Deyjah!

This evening The Duke and Duchess of Sussex accompanied Her Majesty The Queen and members of @TheRoyalFamily to the annual @RoyalBritishLegion Festival of Remembrance. This special event, which has taken place every year since 1923 at the @RoyalAlbertHall, commemorates all those who have lost their lives in conflicts. • This year’s Festival marked the 75th anniversary of a number of crucial battles of 1944, with a particular emphasis on the collaboration and friendship of the British, Commonwealth and Allied armies who fought them. A unique tribute was given to acknowledge those involved both past and present, culminating in a special parade of some of the last surviving veterans who fought and served in 1944. • Their Royal Highnesses, who last year attended their first Festival of Remembrance together, were honoured to once again pay tribute to all casualties of war and remember those that have made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. #FestivalOfRemembrance #WeWillRememberThem Photo © PA / Royal British Legion
Meghan Markle has shared a rare photo of her pre-royal life.
The Duchess wiped all her social media pages, as well as her lifestyle website, after announcing her engagement to Prince Harry – and while some images are still floating around online, Meghan doesn’t post such candid shots any more.
However, in honour of Remembrance Day in the UK and Veterans’ Day in the US, Meghan posted some memories of her 2014 USO tour visiting troops around the world:

Today is Remembrance Day and also Veterans Day in the United States, a day to honour those who have bravely served in the Armed Forces. Thank you to all, for your service, sacrifice and commitment. It has been an important week to recognise those who serve (and have served) as well as to acknowledge their families. In 2014, The (now) Duchess of Sussex proudly went on @TheUSO tour with the Chairman of The Joint Chiefs of Staff, visiting troops in five countries: Spain, Italy, Turkey, Afghanistan and the United Kingdom. During this tour, The Duchess met with service personnel and their families and she was proud to recognise their service to the country. At the time, The Duchess said: “I have always had such a profound respect for our nation’s troops and military families. I cannot thank them enough for everything they do for us.” #VeteransDay #RemembranceDay
Yep, that is Glee star Dianna Agron there with her, along with country music star Kellie Pickler. They didn’t get that all important @sussexroyal tag, unforch. Must be raging.
Drake has clapped back after getting booed off the stage at a festival last weekend.
Concert-goers were expecting to see Frank Ocean as the promised surprise headliner, but instead got Mr Champagne Papi – and they weren’t shy in sharing their disappointment:

Ouch. When the boos got more intense, he walked off the stage, saying “It’s been love. I go by the name of Drake, thank you for having me.”
He doesn’t seem to be too pressed about it though, joking on Instagram: “Plot twist… just signed a ten year residency at Camp Flog Gnaw sorry kids see you EVERY SINGLE YEAR til you are 30.”
When did the worm turn on wee Drizzy? Answers on a postcard please.
