Who is hot on Instagram today?

All eyes are on Big Brother star Kate Lawler who is on cloud nine after getting engaged to her long-term partner Martin.

Kate, 37, announced her happy news on Instagram and revealed to fans that their beloved dog Baxter was part of her special moment.

Kate, who was the first female to win the 2002 series of Big Brother, said she was spending the weekend in Bruges, Belgium, with the “two loves of her life” when Martin popped the question with a stunning diamond ring.

She can be found on Instagram on the account @thekatelawler where she has 49,000 followers.

 Meanwhile Amanda Holden is being searched for on Instagram, following welling up on Britain’s Got Talent as she listened to the NHS choir who ‘saved her life’. The TV personality is known for posting stunning pictures to social media, where she has 659,000 followers. Many of her shots show her behind-the-scenes antics when she isn’t filming the prime-time programme, and sweet photos of her family. Follow her account @noholdenback to stay in the loop.

S Club 7’s Hannah Spearritt featured on This Morning yesterday and stunned viewers with her seriously ‘posh’ accent.

She appeared on the show to talk about her breast implant ordeal and sounded very different to how fans remember.

Hannah first shot to fame in 2000 as part of the singing sensation S Club 7, who sold more than 17 million records before disbanding in 2004 when Hannah then embarked on an acting career.

She has since appeared in the BBC1 soap EastEnders for a stint in 2017 as part of the Taylor family who also moved to Albert Square last year.

She can be found at @hannahspearritt, where she has 72,000 followers.

What are the most controversial moments on Instagram ever?

Instagram doesn’t come without its fair share of headline-grabbing posts.

The past few years have seen naked posts, public feuds and emotional out-pourings on the site – but what have been the most controversial Instagrams of all?

When actress Kim Cattrall’s brother sadly passed away in February 2018, ex Sex and the City co-star Sarah Jessica Parker publicly posted her condolences.

However Cattrall reminded followers of stories of bullying on-set with a to-the-point post.

My Mom asked me today “When will that @sarahjessicaparker, that hypocrite, leave you alone?” Your continuous reaching out is a painful reminder of how cruel you really were then and now. Let me make this VERY clear. (If I haven’t already) You are not my family. You are not my friend. So I’m writing to tell you one last time to stop exploiting our tragedy in order to restore your ‘nice girl’ persona.

Kim Kardashian famously “broke the Internet” when she posted a naked selfie with the caption “When you’re like I have nothing to wear LOL”.

The reality star regularly posts divisive images on the site.

The 37-year-old recently ended up trading insults with Lindsay Lohan after she came under fire for posting pictures of herself with blonde cornrows on her Instagram account.

Posing in various states of undress, she likened her hairstyle to that of Bo Derek, the actress who wore a similar braided hairstyle in the 1979 movie 10.

Dan Bilzerian isn’t one to shy away from controversy on Instagram, but a picture of the poker player surrounded by half naked women wielding guns, really annoyed people.

Who Are Meghan Markle’s Siblings? The Lowdown On Samantha Grant And Thomas Markle Jr

Published

on

MEGHAN Markle is set to marry Prince Harry on May 19 in Windsor Castle.

Everyone knows about Harry’s famous royal family, but who are Meghan’s siblings? Here’s the lowdown.

Samantha Grant appeared on Good Morning Britain to speak about Meghan’s engagement

Who are Meghan’s siblings?

Through her father’s side, Meghan has two older half-siblings – Thomas Markle Jr. and Samantha Grant.

Her parents, Thomas Markle Sr. and Doria Loyce Ragland divorced when she was six-years-old, and the siblings are from her father’s previous marriage to Roslyn Markle.

Neither parent has remarried since.

Who is Samantha Grant?

Samantha, 53, is Meghan’s oldest sibling, and has been the most opinionated out of the siblings regarding the upcoming wedding.

She lives in Florida, has three children, and has used a wheelchair since 2008, when she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.

In November 2016, after Meghan and Harry’s romance became public, she said: “Her behaviour is certainly not befitting of a royal family member.”

She is planning to release a book entitled The Diary of Princess Pushy’s Sister, and has tweeted numerous times about it, saying that it will include details of their “home life” and “photographs never seen before.”

She is said to have publicly laid into Meghan on twitter after claiming not to have received an invite.

Samantha accused the royal couple of inviting “complete strangers” to their wedding, after it was revealed 1,200 members of the public were given invitations.

But she claims “no one” from the Markle clan made the coveted guest list.

Splash News Thomas Markle Jr. lives in Oregon with his girlfriend

Who is Thomas Markle Jr.?

Thomas, 51, shared his name with Meghan’s father, who was a lighting director in Hollywood.

He was 14-years-old when Meghan was born, and lived with his father, step-mother (Doria), Samantha during Meghan’s early years.

Thomas works as a window fitter and lives in Grant’s Pass, Oregon with his partner Darlene Blout, 37, and has two sons that live nearby.

His ex-wife, Tracy Dooley has said that he struggled with alcohol issues during their 11 year marriage.

What Are Steroids, Are They Addictive, Are They Legal In The Uk, Why Do They Make You Fat And What Are They Used For?

Published

STEROIDS are anti-inflammatory medicines that can treat allergies, eczema, muscle pain, inflammatory bowel disease, and lupus.

But how do they work and what are the side effects? Here’s the lowdown.

Alamy Steroids can be taken as tablets

What are steroids and what are they used for?

Steroid tablets are an anti-inflammatory medication, which can treat a number of conditions.

They are made up of hormones normally produced by two glands above your kidneys (adrenal glands), which reduce redness and swelling.

This helps with inflammatory conditions, such as eczema, allergies such as asthma, and inflammatory bowel disease.

They also affect the immune system by reducing the body’s natural defence against illness.

Conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus are caused by the immune system wrongly attacking the body, so can be treated by steroids.

These steroids are not to be confused with anabolic steroids – the ones people use to improve performance and increase muscle mass.

How can you take them?

They can come in many forms, including:

Tablets, syrups, and liquids Inhalers or nasal sprays Injections Creams, gels, or lotions

Are they legal in the UK and what are their side effects?

Steroids tablets are available on prescription, and you should always follow the doctor’s instructions.

The higher the dose, the more likely you are to have side effects, and according to the NHS, these include:

Indigestion or heartburn Increased appetite (which may cause weight gain) Trouble sleeping Mood changes, such as feeling more anxious or irritable Increased risk of infections such as measles or shingles High blood sugar or diabetes Bone weakening High blood pressure Cushing’s syndrome (think skin that bruises easily, stretch marks, fat deposits on face) Eye conditions such as cataracts Mental health problems

Anabolic steroids, the type that bodybuilders use, are addictive, but anti-inflammatory steroids are not.
