Who is Tristan Thompson, how old is he and what is his background?

Tristan Thompson is a 26-year-old Toronto-born basketball player who is currently signed to NBA team Cleveland Cavaliers.

He was drafted to the team in 2011, while he was studying at the University of Texas, and has remained there ever since.

The team won an NBA championship in 2016, and at the end of last year he became the first player in franchise history to play 400 consecutive regular-season games.

His streak ended in April 2017 after he sprained his thumb and was forced to pull out of matches but he's back on form now.

Is Tristan expecting a baby with Khloe Kardashian?

Khloe and Tristan confirmed they are expecting her first child together on Instagram.

It comes after months of speculation regarding her pregnancy, where she refused to confirm or deny the rumours.

TMZ reported the news in September, claiming the reality star was three months pregnant – which means she would have her baby in March/April.

They also claim that Khloe "conceived naturally" – after previously undergoing fertility treatments with ex-husband Lamar Odom.

Khloe's mum Kris Jenner had also appeared to confirm the news, when she told Entertainment Tonight in an interview: "I'm over the moon for her."

Kris revealed the joy she feels at her offspring having children: "When your babies have babies it’s magic.

"It’s the best. The kids bring such joy and it makes everything worth it."

Although it was previously reported that Khloe doesn't know the baby's sex, fans believe she is dropping hints online that she's having a girl.

When did Tristan and Khloe start dating?

The pair were first rumoured to be seeing each other in September 2016, when they were both spotted leaving Bootsy Bellows nightclub in Los Angeles within minutes of each other.

Days later they were seen looking loved up on a romantic Mexico getaway.

Khloe’s best friend Malika Haqq confirmed how close they’d become, and said: “He’s really nice to her. He’s the coolest guy in the world — and you know, Khloé’s always loved basketball.

“You know, they’re both very giving and very kind. They take great care of their friends and their families."

By the time Halloween arrived, the pair were more open with their budding relationship, and put on a racy display on social media when they partied together.

In one video, 32-year-old Khloe could be seen grinding on her new man in the busy nightclub while someone in their entourage filmed the display.

Another clip saw Tristan lift up his mask and sticking his tongue out and Khloe followed suit before they shared a kiss.

They officially confirmed their relationship shortly after Khloe's divorce from husband Lamar Odom had finally been settled.

Happy bday my love, this picture right here sums up how wild, crazy and how much we love each other. Let's continue to build more memories and cherish them with each other. God bless you, I love you

What do people think of their relationship?

Khloe Kardashian’s relationship with Tristan Thompson has triggered a feud with his teammate Lebron James.

According to Hollywood Life, the famous NBA player isn’t happy about the fact that Tristan is dating a Kardashian.

Basketball fans have also taken against the relationship and are worried dating Khloe will ruin Tristan's career.

The pro basketball star has been spammed with nasty comments across social media saying he’ll “go the same way as Lamar” if he doesn’t break it off with the reality babe.

Khloe's momager Kris Jenner, 61, however, has given him the seal of approval, gushing that he and Khloe are 'really cute' together.

What is Tristan's net worth?

Tristan's net worth is officially unknown.

For the 2017 season, Tristan was paid an estimated $15.33million dollars.

This is part of a five-year contract with the Cavaliers which is said to be worth a whopping $82million overall.

AMANDA Holden looks furious after Ant and Dec destroy her set during an undercover prank for Saturday Night Takeaway.

The 47-year-old heads to what she assumes is just another normal day selling her homeware range at QVC.

But the cheeky Geordie duo wreak havoc in the first Undercover in a brand new series of Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway, and make sure Amanda endures the presenting gig of her nightmares.

Amanda is left unaware that her Britain’s Got Talent colleagues are doing everything possible to cause complications and calamity behind the scenes.
Amongst the pair’s escapades are discarding dirty cups and banana skins around the supposedly good as new set as well as gluing a drawer shut.

A bemused Amanda is left desperate to cut to a commercial break, while Ant and Dec instruct one of the production team to call her ‘Mandy Pandy’.

Ant and Dec hope she doesn’t cotton on to what is happening

And in perhaps their most daring move of the day, they invade the set in the middle of one of Amanda’s broadcasts.
With sparks flying, quite literally, in their final set piece, has Amanda fallen hook, line and sinker for Ant and Dec’s most ambitious prank yet?

A source previously told The Daily Star about the prank: “They wreaked havoc on set. Amanda had no idea what was going on.

“It’s the boys’ most nerve-wracking hidden camera prank in the show’s history.

Gogglebox Siblings Pete And Sophie Sandiford Pay Tribute To Leon Bernicoff

It’s the show that’s made stars of couch potatoes watching telly.

And siblings Sophie and Pete Sandiford, who made their debut last year, still can’t believe their luck to have joined the Gogglebox family.

“It’s been one big pinch-me moment,” says Sophie, 22, a shop-window dresser when she’s not filming.

“We can still pop out for milk, but I can always tell when we’re on telly because my phone buzzes with new Twitter followers.”

“We’re still gobsmacked that we’re on the show,” adds Pete, 24, who works in insurance.

“A woman came up to me saying me and Soph were ace – when people take the time to do that, it means a lot.”

The pair, from Blackpool, love hanging out at each other’s houses.
“I’m always round Pete’s, feet up, watching the box,” laughs Sophie. “We’re fans of SAS: Who Dares Wins. That process really draws you in.”

“I think I’d smash it if I went on that,” reckons Pete.

“No you wouldn’t,” adds Sophie. “Sorry to disappoint you, but no!”

As Gogglebox returns, Leon Bernicoff – who died last December – his wife June and their often funny, always sweet commentary of the week’s TV will sadly be missing.

“Leon was the Grandfather of Gogglebox, the main man,” says Pete.

“He’s a character who will never be replaced,” reflects Sophie. “We’ll all miss him dearly.”
