James Jordan hits out at ‘fake’ Giovanni and Amanda



James Jordan has issued a brutal blow to “fake” Strictly Come Dancing 2023 stars Giovanni Pernice and Amanda Abbington.

The former pro dancer, who appeared on the glitzy BBC One show until 2013, has always been vocal about his time and thoughts on the programme. And with the second live show kicking off on Saturday night (September 30), James wasted no time in airing what he thought of the show.

But it appears one couple has rubbed up James the wrong way. So much so that he has branded Giovanni and Amanda as “fake”.

James Jordan calls Strictly 2023 couple ‘fake’

At the weekend, Giovanni and Sherlock actress Amanda Abbington put on a jaw-dropping salsa performance. Their routine went down well with the judges Shirley Ballas, Anton Du Beke, Motsi Mabuse and Craig Revel Horwood. The foursome gave the pair eight points each – giving them a total score of 32.

But during an interview with Hello, ex-star James didn’t hold back as he aired his thoughts on their performance. “Everyone was going ‘oh my god the lifts were amazing’. But I didn’t particularly like some of the lifts.”

‘There’s something not working’ says Strictly star

James explained: “The one where she had her legs akimbo round his neck, I mean what was that?! I get left feeling cold when I watch them. I don’t feel invested in them as a partnership.”

The dancer went on to say how he “hates” using this word, but: “It almost feels fake. Like the facial expressions and everything – it doesn’t feel like it’s coming from internally. As a couple I don’t really like it at the moment there’s something not working.”

However, he did not that his opinion could be changed. He admitted that “in two weeks time they could be my favourites”.

When did James leave Strictly?

James and wife Ola first became professional dancers on Strictly in 2006 during the fourth series.

James left after the 2013 series, amid claims that he’d been demoted to backing dancer and wouldn’t have a pro partner in 2014. Ola, meanwhile, followed suit two years later, reportedly after a row with producers over James’ controversial exit.

Here’s why you recognise actress Bharti Patel




Maya Houssain arrives in EastEnders tonight, and immediately hits it off with Harvey Monroe.

Since Mitch and Rocky left Walford, Harvey’s been a bit lonely, and partner Jean has been encouraging him to make new friends.

But we’re not sure fellow Tottenham Hotspur fan Maya is exactly who Jean meant!

Harvey bumps into Maya – a cab customer – and they chat about Spurs.

And he’s pleased the following day when she comes back to the Square and gives him a vintage football programme. The pair happily chat about their favourite sport, but Jean’s not too pleased.

Who plays Maya Houssain?

Maya is played by actress Bharti Patel.

She’ll be a familiar face to soap fans as she has been a regular in BBC’s Doctors.

She plays midwife Ruhma Hanif, who was a love interest for Heston Carter. The couple eventually married and Ruhma was devastated when Heston was killed in an accident.

Bharti is still part of the cast in Doctors, which is on our screens until December. The soap has been axed – much to the disappointment of its devoted fans

Soap fans might also recognise Bharti’s voice as she’s played several roles in the BBC Radio 4 soap, The Archers!

She also appeared in TV dramas The Undeclared War, Ten Percent and Don’t Forget the Driver.

Is Maya staying in EastEnders?

EastEnders has confirmed Maya is only in the soap for a guest role. However she will appear again next week.

Harvey loses her number so gets Tommy’s help to track her down online. But Maya then turns up in Walford on Tuesday June 4, fuming with Harvey.

She tells him he should not have gone through her socials. Harvey is apologetic and invites her for a drink. Maya accepts and the pair head to The Albert.

Maya then opens up to Harvey explaining her husband died last year. It’s clear the pair are bonding over more than just football.

Maya later leaves, but Harvey notices she has forgotten her hat. He once again visits her socials online to send her a message saying he has it for her. However he finds her account has been deleted.

Harvey gets really down about losing touch with her, so Jean tries to help. She takes him on a boys’ night out with a football team. But will it cheer him up?

And, just what is going on with mysterious Maya? Will Harvey ever see her again? Or has she now gone for good?

Why Charles and Camilla are yet to respond to royal wedding of year invite




King Charles and Queen Camilla are reportedly yet to decide if they will attend what’s being billed as the royal wedding of the year.

It seems it isn’t just the monarch’s busy schedule that has slowed down their response – familial tension could be the root of the issue.

Just weeks after Prince Harry was allegedly snubbed by King Charles whilst visiting the UK, Harry has reportedly bowed out of attending the nuptials. This was said to be over concerns his attendance would be “awkward”.

Now, it has come to light that perhaps King Charles and Queen Camilla are harbouring old resentment when it comes to attending royal weddings.

King Charles and Queen Camilla in ‘snub’ to royal wedding

The King and Queen are yet to confirm whether they will attend the Duke of Westminster’s wedding to Olivia Henson, according to reports.

In fact, their lack of response has highlighted a previous time the couple decided against attending a wedding ceremony. The couple declined an invitation to the wedding of the Duke’s sister, 20 years ago.

Back in 2004, the pair were invited to Lady Tamara Grosvenor’s wedding. However, at the time, the pair were reportedly informed that they would not be allowed to sit together and that they would even have to arrive to the ceremony separately.

This led to the couple avoiding the event. According to Richard Eden at MailOnline, a source stated: “Their Majesties have not forgotten what happened at the wedding of Hugh’s sister. There is still a lot of tension that exists.”

Royal author Sarah Bradford revealed has since claimed that Queen Elizabeth II was annoyed at the situation. According to the Mirror, an insider at the time said: “Her Majesty is a stickler for protocol. It would be inappropriate for Mrs Parker Bowles to sit beside Prince Charles since she has no official standing.”

Charles instead chose to visit families of soldiers stationed in Iraq at Warminster barracks. Camilla was said to be otherwise engaged.

ED! has contacted reps for comment.

Monarch returns to royal duties after cancer diagnosis

Despite avoiding this occasion, King Charles has wowed fans with his recent return to royal duties, in wake of his cancer diagnosis earlier this year.

Especially during his recent trip to the Chelsea Flower Show. This is where many social media users couldn’t help but note just how well he looked.

Many shared their thoughts in the comments section of a post by the Royal Horticultural Society.

One wrote: “Wonderful to see King Charles looking so well.” A second praised: “King looks really well I’m glad to say. Queen is her usual lovely self. Fabulous couple.”

A third also gushed: “So nice to see His Majesty looking so well.” A fourth then chimed in: “His Majesty is looking so well. Good to see him back.”

All the tragedies to have struck the family of Ruth Langsford ahead of Eamonn split




This week, telly power couple Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes shared the sad news that they are going their separate ways after 14 years of marriage.

Our hearts truly go out to the pair, who have both been through a lot in recent years.

While Eamonn has endured years of painful health problems, Ruth too has had a lot on her plate to deal with.

Ruth Langsford mourns loss of her dad

Ruth’s dad Dennis passed away in 2012 as a result of complications caused by Alzheimer’s disease.

Ruth once recalled a particularly devastating story of visiting her dad in his care home, and This Morning being on the TV.

“My aunt Rosa said: ‘Oh, Dennis, look, there’s Rooty.’ He used to call me Rooty Tooty, he turned around, he looked at the screen he went: ‘Oh, I can’t stand her,’ and turned away.

“Which is so funny… but also like heartbreaking, but you know you have to laugh because there are so many funny moments and if you didn’t laugh you’d just be crying the whole time,” she added.

Ruth’s mother, who cared for him for other a decade, was subsequently diagnosed with dementia herself.

In an appearance on fellow Loose Woman Kaye Adams‘ podcast, Ruth confessed that she is scared that she too will develop the disease, but is too afraid to take a test to find out if she is likely to.

“I don’t really want to do it, because there’s no cure at the moment,” she explained.

Earlier this year, Ruth’s mum, Joan, who is now 92 and lives in sheltered accomodation, had a further health scare. She fell and broke her hip. Thankfully, she seems to have recovered well.

Losing her sister

In June 2019, Ruth tragically lost her older sister Julie to suicide, after a long struggle with depression.

Ruth has since described it as the “hardest year of [her] life”.

“I can’t even tell you what year it is, because I’ve blocked it from my memory really,” she said. The star also admitted that she considered quitting TV in the wake of her bereavement.

“It seemed wrong to be cheery on screen, when, inside, my heart was breaking.”

‘Like part of my heart had been ripped out’

Ruth has spoken candidly on Loose Women about her experience with empty nest syndrome. Her only son, Jack, who she shares with Eamonn, recently moved out, something that she found very difficult to come to terms with.

“I would say that first week of not having him at home literally felt like part of my heart had been ripped out,” she confessed, fighting off tears.

Ruth then added: “I kept his bedroom door shut. I remember coming home and going into his bedroom and crying.”
