It’s difficult dating on the show!

There have been many ups and downs in the relationship department over the five series that E4’s hit reality show Made In Chelsea has been on air.   But aside from a brief dalliance with co-star Jamie Laing, MIC star Binky Felstead has yet to see a relationship blossom on the small screen – which suits her just fine.   Appearing on This Morning on Tuesday, the 23-year-old television personality confessed to Philip Schofeild and Holly Willoughby that she isn’t looking to find love in front of the cameras, telling the presenters it would be too ‘difficult’ to have her love life played out in front of the nation.

‘I’m single and going to see what happens, really,’ she said on the daytime show before revealing why she would shy away from the cameras should she find someone she wants to settle down with.

‘It’s quite difficult dating someone on the show. You’ve got the lights on you and it’s a bit intense.’   She went on to explain that she would rather date someone off-screen, like her friend and co-star Millie Mackintosh (who is now engaged to Professor Green), and revealed she has enjoyed a secret relationship in the past – but this was met with different problems.

‘I’ve had a relationship off the show and it was hard because they didn’t understand… It’s nice to have something private, but then they will get found out.’   The star also revealed that jealousy can be a result of a relationship with someone not involved in the show before saying again it would be too ‘difficult’ to date someone on it.   She was joined on the famous sofa by fellow MIC stars Jamie Laing and Lucy Watson.   Rounding on Lucy, presenter Holly asked why she felt it was necessary to be rude to so many of the other cast members, pointing out her major contribution to the show is stirring up trouble.

try and be as honest and direct as possible. I think honesty is key,’ the dark haired socialite said, defending her actions – while Jamie offered an alternative view suggesting Lucy was simply ‘socially stupid’ (charming!)

The McVitie’s heir was mortified to hear that his friend on the show, Francis Boulle, was Holly’s favourite character out of the cast.   The presenter tried to soften the blow by telling him, ‘You’re very sweet – but you’re far too naughty with the ladies, I’m afraid.’   Indeed Jamie has recently found himself in an awkward position on the show after chasing Lucy and fellow star Phoebe, despite having a girlfriend named Tara for six months.

At the beginning of the segment, Holly and Phil lampooned the BAFTA nominated show, spoofing one of the awkwardly long pauses that has made the TV series such a success.   ‘But you knew she was my friend,’ announced Holly as cameras panned back to the pair after some video content from the show.   ‘Awkward,’ she added before Phil comically mimed some strained silence.   Philip remained silent for the vast majority of the interview to allow self-confessed MIC addict Holly to lead the segment – only really raising interest in Jamie’s great grandfather who invented the humble digestive biscuit.

The actor bought the five bedroom, six bathroom pad for $4,381,000, so should he sell it for the asking price he will make a tidy profit, although he has spent money on the home.

Since purchasing the property Christopher, who is married to decorator and set designer Sherman Williams Meloni, has overseen a ‘complete interior transformation’ of the house, according to the listing on realtor.com.

And should the new buyer have a family who want to watch different things on TV there are a number of entertainment rooms.

The actor and his wife already have a property in New Milford, which they scooped in in 2003.

Adam Lambert is back on the market. The American Idol alum, 31, has split from boyfriend Sauli
Koskinen, he told South Florida Gay News.

“It’s been kind of on its way out in the last couple of months,” the singer told the
publication of his relationship with Koskinen, a Finnish entertainer and the 2007 winner of
Finland’s Big Brother.

“Sauli and I remain really good friends, and I know it’s a cliché thing to say,” he continued.
“But it’s totally true. I just gave him a coffee and bagel earlier today. He’s a great person
and we’ve had an amazing couple of years together. Things have just run their course.”

Adam  Lambert added that both he and Koskinen have been increasingly focused on their own individual
careers in recent months, which likely contributed to their breakup. “I’ve been getting really
busy and traveling a lot and and he’s been getting really busy because he has a show he’s
filming for Finnish television,” he said. “So we just decided to part ways.”

Jessica Alba Slips back Into The Blue!

She became famous for her incredible bikini body in the 2005 underwater action movie Into The Blue.   And eight years – and two children – later, Jessica Alba has slipped back into a similar sky blue swimsuit while on holiday in St. Barts, in the French West Indies.   She proved that she still has the same amazing figure, despite giving birth to two kids in the interim.

The 31-year-old flaunted her perfectly toned body as she took a dip in the warm Caribbean ocean on Thursday with her husband Cash Warren.

She appeared to be having a ball as she laughed while splashing around in the sea.

At one point she was seen standing in the thigh-level water, squeezing out her long wet hair.

The actress then opted for a spot of sunbathing as she reclined on a jetty, stretching out her  long toned legs.

She sat up cross-legged at one point, soaking up the sun while showing off her enviably toned tummy.   After having two children Jessica’s incredible body has not been an easy achievement. The actress followed a strict diet and fitness regime.

She once said: ‘Working out every day for even just 45 minutes is good for my mental state.   ‘Getting dressed and actually doing it is the worst. It’s hard to get motivated.’   ‘In the gym, I have like five things to distract me: TV, iPod, magazines. Working partners are  good, too, so you can chat and not just drown in your own misery. Sorry, does that sound bad?  I just hate working out.’

After giving birth to her first child she then also stuck to a strict meal-plan which was delivered to her house.   ‘I have a hard time with portion control, so I have 1,200 calorie meals delivered. But I also work out, so basically I’m starving—it sucks. I drink a lot of water.’   After her fun in the water, she was seen walking out the surf with Cash, who looked rather pleased to be stood beside his beautiful wife.

He looked toned himself in black-and-white patterned shorts, a tattoo clearly visible on his right arm.

It’s 1Dye!

One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson has embraced Comic Relief by dressing up with hair dye to mark  Red Nose Day.

The singer is set to officially debut his rouged quiff on TV on Friday night, but images which  have surfaced beforehand give a little taster of his new look.

Louis’ Red Nose Day style change came about in response to a ‘Twittition’ (a petition on Twitter) from his beloved Doncaster Rovers Football Club, after the whole team were great sports and donned red lipstick to raise money for Comic Relief.

The heartthrob’s locks in fact look more ginger than bright red and are certainly not as  bright as Nick Grimshaw’s pink hair, which he unveiled on Thursday.

But no doubt Louis’ legions of fans will be pleased with his transformation and that he’s doing his bit for charity.

Going red isn’t the only thing Louis has done to get involved with the charity this year,  his band of course recorded the official Red Nose Day single, which is available to download  on iTunes with the physical CD available to buy from Sainsbury’ stores nationwide.

On top of that the band are also trying to inspire their fans to raise cash for the campaign,  which you can find more information about at rednoseday.com/1D.   Fans will be delighted that One Direction will be performing their charity single One Way or  Another (Teenage Kicks), as part of a star-studded line up on Friday on BBC One from 7pm, as Red Nose Day celebrates its 25th anniversary with a TV extravaganza Comic Relief-Funny for  Money.   Earlier this year the band saw first hand life-changing projects supported by money raised  through Red Nose Day fun when they made an emotional visit to Ghana.

The boys’ video diaries from their trip along with exclusive bonus scenes from their Red Nose Day photo shoot is captured in ‘One Direction: Africa diaries’, which is available to  download on iTunes now.     As if all that wasn’t enough, the clothes One Direction wore at this year’s BRIT Awards have been donated to Comic Relief to sell on eBay.

Fans also have the opportunity to bid for a place in a box with catering at the O2 for  their concert on 2nd April – there are 18 places available which has been broken down into three lots, each of which will come with a T-shirt signed by all 5 band members and worn by  one of them.

Finally, bidders have the chance to get their hands on a brand new iPad and iPad cover signed by the band in a separate lot on eBay.  You can support Red Nose Day by bidding now  at www.ebay.co.uk/rednoseday and 100% of the final sale price will go to Comic Relief.   One Direction will forgo any royalties due to them and therefore will not receive any payment  in connection with the official Red Nose Day single.

Syco, their record label, will donate 100% of its profits from the sale of each CD single and download to Comic Relief, registered charity 326568 (England & Wales); SC039730 (Scotland).   This is expected to be £1 for each CD sold in the UK and at least 25p for each iTunes single  download and 68p from every iTunes bundle download sold in the UK.

Meanwhile Louis, who has been touring the UK and Ireland with One Direction since the  beginning of the year, was spotted hobbling about on stage.

It seems he may have over-exerted himself during one high-energy routine, leaving himself with a painful leg, but hopefully he’s had time to heal before Friday night’s performance.
