Insta Creep: Tom Hanks Has Shared An Update On How He’s Doing After His Covid-19 Diagnosis…

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.

Tom Hanks has shared an update on his condition after he and wife Rita Wilson were confirmed to have coronavirus.

The couple are currently in Australia, where Tom was due to begin filming Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis biopic, and shared the news of their diagnosis earlier this week.

People were devo for them, but Tom wants everyone to know that they’ll be OK:

We are in isolation so we do not spread it to anyone else. There are those for whom it could lead to a very serious illness. We are taking it one day at a time… Remember, despite all the current events, there is no crying in baseball.

The League of Their Own reference has fully done us in. Feel better very soon, Tom and Rita!

Ben Foden’s wife Jackie has been accused of racism after sharing some controversial views about China and the coronavirus outbreak.

Posting on her Instagram Story, Jackie accused the Chinese government of purposely putting Americans in danger as a result of the US government owing them money.

“Clean your sh*t up China,” she wrote. When a follower responded telling her that this view was racist, said: “How is this racist?  How is it fair??”

We won’t go too much into the conspiracy theory stuff she said next, but suffice it to say she believes that it’s all just “a little too convenient”, and is instructing anyone who thinks she’s being racist to ‘get f**ked’. Riiight.

Ben and Jackie married last October after a few months of dating, and announced last month that they are expecting their first child. Hoo boy.

Meanwhile, disco legend Gloria Gaynor has provided her own hand-washing technique for us all to follow.

The 70-year-old singer is on TikTok (because of course she is) and posted a video of herself lip-syncing to her song I Will Survive while washing her hands.

“It only takes 20 seconds to ‘SURVIVE’!” she wrote.

Absolutely right Gloria. Wash yo hands, people.

And now it’s time for… #FBF

The best celebrity throwback photos of the week.

SMG, you beauty. To celebrate her husband Freddie Prinze Jr’s 44th birthday this week, the Buffy actress posted this excellent photo of him brooding away in the ’90s. The tiny chain! The bare chest! The perfect lock of hair on his forehead! They simply must get that framed.
