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.
Michelle Visage is upset by rumours that she’s ‘feuding’ with her Strictly partner Giovanni Pernice.
The British tabloids are reporting that she and Gio don’t get on (which is a surprise to us, given their great chemistry on the show) and that Michelle is ‘deeply unhappy’ with her partner.
In a statement on Instagram, Michelle said she found the stories ‘upsetting’:
If anyone knows us, you would know how close Giovanni and I are. Gio is my best friend in this competition, he is my rock and I trust him with everything. We have the most fun and laughs together and to suggest otherwise is just sad.
“Darling, you have been quite popular this week in the papers… They don’t know what to say anymore,” commented Giovanni. “Just keep focusing on what we are doing! Blackpool here we come!”
The pair are currently preparing for Strictly’s first show in Blackpool this weekend, where they’ll be dancing to Vogue by Madonna. They better be utilising Michelle’s skills as a queen of the NYC vogueing scene.

Mel B has been clearing up some misunderstandings about that Tesco Clubcard ad.
Earlier this week, she posted a photo of the ad and demanded that Tesco CEO Dave Lewis contact her “urgently”, leading everyone to believe she wasn’t happy about her photo being used.
However, Mel says she’d actually sanctioned the use of her image, and the campaign is meant to raise funds for domestic abuse charity Women’s Aid:
I did this campaign for Women’s Aid to raise awareness and raise funds. There was a miscommunication between some of the parties dealing with it but luckily Tesco has been amazing… I’m really pleased that Tesco understands how important Women’s Aid is to me, and has agreed to match my fee in donation to the charity.

For the record, I just want to let everyone know about my Tesco Clubcard Plus involvement because there has been soo much fuss about it and soo many unfounded rumours. There was NEVER any issue about me being unhappy with my image being used and there was NEVER any issue about Tesco being given permission to use the image. I did this campaign for Women’s Aid to raise awareness and to raise funds. There was a miscommunication between some of the parties dealing with it but luckily Tesco has been amazing. Women’s Aid sadly lost funding a few weeks ago which was why I decided to do this campaign. I’m really pleased that Tesco understands how important Women’s Aid is to me, and has agreed to match my fee in donation to the charity. This money is a game-changer for them. It will keep their live chat line running for the next six months and all over Christmas. This service literally saves lives. One in four women are affected by domestic violence. I am never going to stop trying to help. Thank you Tesco. @womens_aid @tescofood
A comment from Mel B’s mum on her first post seems to imply that Women’s Aid was supposed to receive a higher billing on the ad. Hopefully it can all be resolved!
John Legend was crowned People’s Sexiest Man Alive for 2019, and Chrissy Teigen is having a BALL with it.
John already has an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony (AKA EGOT) but now he has the most important title of all: Sexiest Man Alive.
Chrissy has updated her Twitter bio to reflect her new status as the person “currently sleeping with People’s Sexiest Man Alive”, and is now chronicling John’s activities as such:
the sexiest man alive just made me a ham sandwich

Iconic. Congratulations, John. And Chrissy too, we suppose.
Charting the public’s obsession with what Holly Willoughby is wearing.
Twofer today! Holly wore this slinky black dress to ITV’s fancy ITVpalooza party – it’s by Christopher Kane so we won’t even begin to image the price or availability, but it looks sensaysh on her.
But she gave the people what they want This Morning with a full outfit from Warehouse. At last! High street prices! The striped knit is currently on sale for €35.70, while the leather-look mini is available for the princely sum of €40.
