HATTON Garden robber Michael Seed was locked up for his part in the heist which raided safe deposit boxes in central London.
But who was the man who was simply known as ‘Basil’?Seed was sentenced to ten years in prison for his part in the Hatton Garden jobWho is Michael ‘Basil’ Seed?
Seed is a 58-year-old electronics expert who took part in the infamous heist on security deposit boxes in London’s diamond district Hatton Garden over the Easter bank holiday weekend in April 2015.
It is thought the robbers got away with around £14million worth of jewellery and cash from the Hatton Garden Safe Deposit company.
Seed was simply known as ‘Basil’ by the other robbers and it is thought he let himself into the building in Hatton Garden using a set of keys before managing to disable the alarm system.
He was one of two men who climbed into the vault through a hole drilled through a thick wall to loot 73 deposit boxes.
The judge in Seed’s trial, Judge Christopher Kinch QC said: “Your role was a central one. You were at the heart of the core activities that had to be carried out.The gang drilled through a thick wall to get to the safe deposit boxesPA:Press Association
“You were not just there to fetch and carry. In my judgement this must rank among the worst offences of its type.”
Seed was living less than two miles away in a council flat in Islington but police failed to catch him for three years.
At his trial the former Nottingham university student told the jury at Woolwich Crown Court he was not the man known as ‘Basil’ and could have been on a family holiday or visiting his elderly mum in Cambridge at the time of the robbery.
Seed was cleared of conspiracy to burgle the high-end Chatila jewellery store in Bond Street over the late August bank holiday weekend in 2010 with members of the same gang.The gang looted the contents of 73 safe deposit boxesHandout
He had previously been behind bars in the 1980s for drugs offences and it was revealed he had never paid any tax, never claimed any benefits and had no obvious source of income.
Seed was raised in Cambridge, the son of a university professor and went on to study physics and electronics after gaining four A-levels in maths, physics, chemistry and geology.
Hatton Garden ringleaders Brian Reader, 80, John “Kenny” Collins, 78, Daniel Jones, 64, and Terry Perkins, who died in prison last year aged 69, were all jailed in 2016.How was the ringleader of the heist caught?
Seed managed to evade being caught by the cops for three years but was finally caught in 2018.
During the raid he was disguised in a ginger wig, facemask and hat and left no forensic trace at the scene.
Cops offered a £20,000 reward in 2016, saying they had no idea who the man was.
Police are believed to have identified Seed in November 2015 but waited until March 2018 to arrest him when they could catch him red-handed.MOST READ IN NEWS CHILLING SLIP Maxine Carr caught over Soham murders thanks to key mistake in TV interview CARE SICKOS Smirking care home staff attack autistic patient & use 'psychological torture' 'not knowing is torture' Dad of vanished teen sometimes 'envies parents of murdered kids' 'I LAUGHED AT HIM' Ex-Para Brexit voter, 81, mocks childish yob who threw milkshake at him 'child abuse' I was 'unteachable' & kicked out to improve exam results, like 49,000 others FROZEN IN TIME Time capsule room of missing boy who 'may have been killed by paedo' in 1988
When cops did finally catch up with him they found £143,000 worth of gold ingots, gems and jewellery in his bedroom.
It is thought he was melting down gold and breaking up jewellery from the hoard on his bedroom workbench.
He became the tenth person to be convicted in connection with the heist in March 2019 when he was sentenced to ten years in prison.
A NOMADIC couple who raised their baby girl on breast milk, rice and potatoes have been jailed after she nearly starved to death
The 18 month old’s vegan diet threatened her life, a judge at Sweden’s Gothenburg District Court told her deluded parents on Thursday.

The tot was rushed to hospital in February in a critical condition with concerned doctors discovering she was just hours from death.
Medics provided evidence her condition was due to “prolonged starvation” and one revealed it was “worse than anything we have seen at the hospital before,” The Local reported.
After recovering at Queen Silvia’s children’s hospital she was taken into foster care and has since recovered well.
“According to their ideological belief that the daughter was a citizen of the world, her parents did not even report the birth to any authority, have her checked at a paediatric centre, or even weigh or measure her growth,” a statement from the court obtained by The Local said.
“Nor has the girl been vaccinated or examined by a doctor.”
Judge Per Norden said although the girl had not been intentionally harmed, he found some of the parents’ views “remarkable”.
He singled out the views of the mother who believed people could survive without food and water with the correct conditioning.
Prosecutor Ximena Bene had pressed for two or three years imprisonment for the parents, whereas their defence lawyers argued the child’s condition had been due to a stomach bug.CHILLING SLIP Maxine Carr caught over Soham murders thanks to key mistake in TV interview CARE SICKOS Smirking care home staff attack autistic patient & use 'psychological torture' 'not knowing is torture' Dad of vanished teen sometimes 'envies parents of murdered kids' 'I LAUGHED AT HIM' Ex-Para Brexit voter, 81, mocks childish yob who threw milkshake at him STAY OF BREXECUTION Doomed May could cling on for two more weeks and quit after Trump visit PIPE DREAM Horny teen gets his penis stuck while having sex with a metal sewage pipe
They were sentenced for gross negligence causing bodily harm and have been detained for three months and ordered to pay 60,000 kronor (£5,000) in damages to their daughter.
The parents will be permitted to spend eight weeks with their baby under supervision at a care facility monitored by social services.
And the father was further sentenced for several minor crimes including drugs offences and drink driving.
HATTON Garden finishes with the exhilarating series’ final episode tonight on ITV and fans are completely hooked.
The drama, which is based on the infamous heist in 2015, was initially cancelled twice in 24 months and it was all down to legal reasons. Here’s what you may not know…Hatton Gardon is a new ITV drama based on real-life eventsStuart Wood / ITVWhy was Hatton Garden delayed?
Since being announced two years ago, ITV drama Hatton Garden has twice been pulled from the schedules.
The four-part series was initially meant to air in December 2017 when it was pulled as Terry Perkins was about to stand trial for an unrelated robbery.
Show writer and producer, Jeff Pope, explained: “He was charged with another robbery, completely unconnected to Hatton Garden.
“And the trial was due, and if there had been a four-hour drama saying, ‘Terry Perkins is a burglar,’ then he wouldn’t have been able to have a fair trial. So, we had to pull it.”
It was postponed to the following year but had to be pulled again when Seed was caught and tried.
He added: “Just as we were about to transmit again, they caught the elusive Basil. So, again we had to spike it.”
But now Pope says the legal issues, which have delayed the shows debut, are finally “done and dusted”.What time is episode four airing and what happened in episode three?
The fourth episode of fact-based drama Hatton Garden airs on ITV on May 23 at 9pm.
The mini-series commenced on Monday, May 20, and runs for just four episodes over consecutive nights.
If you’ve missed any of you can watch again on the ITV Hub.
In episode three, the Met Police Flying Squad discover the burglary after the long Easter weekend.
The gang are also being pursued by Brian Reader, who was the original ringleader who pulled out after the first unsuccessful attempt.
The elderly gang divide up their bounty.
The episode ends with the cops tracing the car of one of the heist members parked outside a house – they finally have a location.The robbers drilled through a two-metre thick wallPA:Press AssociationWhat is Hatton Garden about?
Hatton Garden is based on the real life Hatton Garden robbery in April 2015.
It shows how four elderly men ransacked an underground safe deposit facility in London’s Hatton Garden.
They used high-duty drills to get into the vault, going through the wall that was two metres thick and cracked into 73 boxes in the vault.
Each box contained a wealth of jewels and precious metals including diamonds, sapphires and gold.
Eventually, the men, who were all experienced thieves, were all caught and all pleaded guilty to the crime.
Four accomplices were also tried for the crime, with only one walking free cleared of their involvement.
It’s not known officially what the total value of what they stole was, but some reports estimate it could be up to a staggering £200million.Hatton Garden starring Timothy Spall, left, is a hit with fansStuart WoodWhat are fans saying about the show?
Fans are absolutely obsessed with the show, with many having taken to social media in order to profess their elation.
One person wrote on Twitter: “I can’t believe it’s been two years since ITV first teased us with the release of Hatton Garden and now it’s finally here; I can’t wait to see if it’s been worth the way”.
Another user followed suit, saying: “Can we appreciate ITV for a second – I mean they’ve finally given us Hatton Garden. And I know it’s not all their fault since there were legal matters stopping them from putting it out, but finally! This is gonna be my new favourite show”.
Another fan of the series couldn’t believe how much effort these men put in their plan to succeed with the heist.
The Twitter user wrote: “I’m actually shocked that someone can be so stupid yet so smart in putting together this heist. They succeeded halfway but fell short in the end when they all got arrested. Not quite the happy ending you expect. Lol”.Who is in the cast of Hatton Garden?

Looking forward for the rest of the day, the Met Office warned: “Most places will have a sunny evening and a dry night with long clear spells, although northern Scotland will be cloudier with patchy light rain.
“Low cloud will form in some western parts by morning.”
By Friday, most places will have another dry and sunny day with a few showers to hit Wales, the Midlands and Southern England.

ZOE Ball took a day off from Radio 2’s breakfast show on Thursday — exactly two years after boyfriend Billy Yates’s funeral.
The BBC’s media editor Amol Rajan stepped in to do the honours, telling listeners Zoe was absent for “personal reasons”.

Friends of Zoe, 48, say she took the day off yesterday because she knew how difficult the anniversary would be for her.
Yesterday was also the 81st birthday of her dad, 1970s and ’80s kids’ telly legend Johnny Ball. One friend said: “It is a really hard time for her.”
Less than a year after Billy’s death, Zoe took part in the Hardest Ride Home challenge, in which she cycled from Blackpool to Brighton to raise money for Sport Relief and mental health awareness.

EVERY 90 minutes in the UK a life is lost to suicide.
It doesn’t discriminate, touching the lives of people in every corner of society – from the homeless and unemployed to builders and doctors, reality stars and footballers.
It’s the biggest killer of people under the age of 35, more deadly than cancer and car crashes.
And men are three times more likely to take their own life than women.
Yet it’s rarely spoken of, a taboo that threatens to continue its deadly rampage unless we all stop and take notice, now.
That is why The Sun launched the You’re Not Alone campaign.
The aim is that by sharing practical advice, raising awareness and breaking down the barriers people face when talking about their mental health, we can all do our bit to help save lives.
Let’s all vow to ask for help when we need it, and listen out for others… You’re Not Alone.

AUDIO has been consistent so far, finishing third each time at Kempton, Brighton and then Chepstow last time out. He has shown plenty of pace for this trip and can make his experience count.

Copacabana Dancer won on the all-weather over this trip but struggled back on turf. He looks better than that and could improve.PA:Press Association
DREAM CATCHING is dropping in class after running better than ninth place suggests at Ascot last time out. He has had a little help from the handicapper too and saves his best for this distance.
Wufud is interesting making his comeback having had a breathing operation over the winter. He won over this trip and looks open to plenty of improvement.
Handytalk was a solid second at Bath last time and a repeat of that would give him a chance.
PENNYWHISTLE looks the one to beat after going down in a tight finish on comeback at Chelmsford last time. She almost tripped coming out of the stalls, which didn’t help, and she is capable of much better here.
Al Messila battled on well when second at Newmarket last time and has been left alone by the handicapper, which gives her every chance.
Desirous is well bred and managed to come through traffic problems to win at Kempton last time out in October. This step up to a mile should bring improvement.
PRIVATE SECRETARY was being talked of as Frankie Dettori’s Derby mount earlier this week but appears to be heading for Royal Ascot now.
That could change if he waltzes off with this and his win at Sandown last time marks him down as much more than a handicapper. This longer trip should bring improvement.
Stablemate Alfaatik has had just two runs and was green when beaten under five lengths at Sandown last time. There is plenty more to come as he steps up in distance here.
Persian Moon has been consistent and his win at Epsom last season bodes well for him handling this helter skelter track.
TIS MARVELLOUS has come down the weights to just 3lb higher than when winning a decent race at York last summer.
He has been a little hit and miss since then but has enough ability to get his head in front given he was fourth in the Wokingham over this distance.
Lake Volta likes to keep it simple from the front and was an improved third at Thirsk last time out. That was over 7f and he should appreciate this drop back in distance.
Course form is often important around here and Puds battled well to win in a photo here over 5f last time.

It is yet to be confirmed which night Jason and Sheridan will perform.
Sheridan’s role in the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical was announced in March.

WHEN I first heard about Sky Atlantic’s new series Chernobyl, I thought it looked good but worried it might be another programme retelling an old story. I couldn’t have been more wrong.
I am three episodes into the drama and it is one of the best things I’ve watched in years.
And it seems the public agree. Yesterday it became the top-rated show on IMDB in telly history.
It is currently rated 9.6 out of ten, with 32,000 punters agreeing just how good it is.
That beats critical darlings such as Breaking Bad, The Wire and The Sopranos.
The five-parter – which boasts Emily Watson, Jared Harris and Stellan Skarsgard among the stellar cast – tells the story of the 1986 blast at the Chernobyl power plant in northern Ukraine, the world’s worst nuclear disaster.

A PUBGOER today told how he saw a man shot in the head as cops fired at the London Bridge terrorists.
Simon Edwards was out with pals at the Wheatsheaf pub when the three rampaging men were gunned down by police.
EPA Armed cops raced to take down the rampaging terrorists in the attack in June 2017[/caption]
AFP - Getty Eight people died and 48 were injured in the attack[/caption]
He told the inquest into the eight terror attack deaths on June 3, 2017, he saw blood pouring from Neil McLelland’s head as they looked out at the horror from the pub window.
The bystander – who survived – was shot as police released a hail of bullets which streaked past Mr Edwards’ head.
Eight people were killed and 48 injured after murderous trio Khuram Butt, 27, Rachid Redouane, 30, and Youssef Zaghba, 22, launched a van and knife attack in the tourist hotspot.
Mr Edwards saw them at the start of their 10 minute rampage, when he saw the three men walking towards him in a spaced-out line.
They appeared to have sticks or “something glowing” in their hands, he said, before he was quickly pulled back into the pub by his partner.
When the trio moved closer, Mr Edwards could see that one of them was a bearded Asian man in an Arsenal shirt carrying a large knife. He was trying to kick in the pub door.
Mr Edwards told the court: “He had canisters down his torso. I thought it was some kind of bomb.
“As the guy with the Arsenal top attempted to smash the window, a guy walked past. The two others set upon him and the guy (in the Arsenal top) went to join them.
“All three of them were attacking the gentleman. They were running at him like a pack of wolves.”
The bullet came directly past you.Jonathan Hough QC
When they finished the attack on the man in the Arsenal top began walking back to the pub, before it was filled with blue lights and a volley of bullets was heard.
Mr Edwards said he then noticed blood coming from Mr McLelland’s head, who had been standing just behind him.
Jonathan Hough QC, counsel for the coroner, asked Mr Edwards: “The bullet came directly past you.”
Mr Edwards replied “yes it looks that way”, adding he hadn’t been aware of it but realised he had blood on his face and knee pain.
He said: “I am led to believe it was from shrapnel from the police bullets.”
Mr Edwards said he braved opening the pub door to shout for a paramedic because he feared “every second was critical” in light of Mr McLelland’s head injury.
He told the inquest he saw one of the attackers on the ground near police officers, adding: “I remember he was handcuffed. His legs were moving, so I knew he was not dead. The suicide vest was still in place.”TERRORIST TAKE DOWN
PC Tim Andrews told the coroners court earlier a suspect who was “pacing around looking like he was looking for somebody else to attack” was shot after he rushed at a police marksman.
He said: “The officer immediately got out of the passenger side. He was holding a firearm. It was initially pointing down towards the ground but one of the three started closing in on him.”
PC Andrews said “shoot him” as the attacker got within yards of the marksman who raised his gun and opened fire, before he “fell to the floor immediately”.
The officer said he approached the attacker and saw “he had his hands clenched to his chest and he was covered in blood”.MOST READ IN NEWS CHILLING SLIP Maxine Carr caught over Soham murders thanks to key mistake in TV interview CARE SICKOS Smirking care home staff attack autistic patient & use 'psychological torture' 'not knowing is torture' Dad of vanished teen sometimes 'envies parents of murdered kids' 'I LAUGHED AT HIM' Ex-Para Brexit voter, 81, mocks childish yob who threw milkshake at him STAY OF BREXECUTION Doomed May could cling on for two more weeks and quit after Trump visit PIPE DREAM Horny teen gets his penis stuck while having sex with a metal sewage pipe

The Red Devils are battling Barcelona for the signature of the teenage defender, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men recently given hope in their quest to nab him.Ajax skipper Matthijs de Ligt is nailed on to leave the Dutch club in the summerAFP or licensors
According to Sport, United are willing to pay De Ligt £240,000-a-week as they look to bolster their leaky defence.
The news outlet claims that Barca are not prepared to get into a wage war and will not match the terms that the Premier League side are offering.
While they also state that the Catalan club wants the 19-year-old to show a ‘change of attitude’ and to stop asking for more money.
It has previously been reported that the centre-back wants to be the poster boy of United’s rebuild and knows he will guaranteed a starting spot at Old Trafford.

AN 82-year-old gran will be “turned out” of her £2.5m country home after losing a six-year court battle with her daughter sparked by a scrap in a milking parlour.
Jane Habberfield was sued by her youngest girl, Lucy, when she refused to hand over ownership of the family’s Somerset farm.
Champion News Service Ltd Jane Habberfield lost her appeal against paying her youngest daughter £1.1million in compensation today[/caption]
Champion News Service Ltd Lucy Habberfield outside London’s Appeal Court – she was told today her claim was upheld[/caption]
The 51-year-old put in long hours on the Yoevil site for 30 years, even milking cows for 80-hour weeks when she was heavily pregnant.
She claimed her parents promised to give her the farm, and last year a judge ordered the OAP to pay Lucy £1.1million in compensation.
Jane appealed against it, but today lost the fight and now faces losing her home over the cost of the “ruinously expensive litigation”.
The court heard tensions had been already building between mum Jane, Lucy and her sister Sarah – who a judge found “all have a temper” – before reaching crises point in a scrap between the sisters in a cowshed at 220-acre Woodrow Farm.
The milking parlour fight in 2013 led to Lucy storming out of the family holding where she had worked since she was a schoolgirl, and filing a court claim for the farm she said she was promised.
In her challenge to Lucy’s £1.1m payout, Jane claimed her estranged daughter got far too much of the family wealth, saying she wanted her share cut to around £220,000 to be “fair” to her other children, Sarah, and Andrew and Emma.
Jane also pleaded with the judges to allow her to pay Lucy out of her estate after her death if they ruled the £1.1m order had to stand.
But Lord Justice Lewison today said that, although it was “a hard outcome” for an 82-year-old woman to have to leave the house which has been her home for over 40 years, the “desperately difficult situation in which Jane found herself was of her own making”.
On the face of it, it seems hard that an 82-year-old woman should leave the house which has been her home for over 40 years.Lord Justice Lewison
“This is a sad tale of a farming family; The Habberfields,” the judge said, dismissing Jane’s appeal.
He went on to say that Jane must now face selling the farm to pay Lucy her dues, as well as meeting the massive legal costs in the case.
“In order to raise the cash sum to which the judge held Lucy to be entitled, the whole of the farm would have to be sold,” he said.
“On the face of it, it seems hard that an 82-year-old woman should leave the house which has been her home for over 40 years.”
But the judge also found that Jane will not be left “destitute” now, but will have enough left from the sale to rehouse herself.
At the High Court hearing last year, Mr Justice Birss said that Lucy began working on the farm when she left school in the early 1980s, earning just £40-50 per week.MOST READ IN NEWS CHILLING SLIP Maxine Carr caught over Soham murders thanks to key mistake in TV interview CARE SICKOS Smirking care home staff attack autistic patient & use 'psychological torture' 'not knowing is torture' Dad of vanished teen sometimes 'envies parents of murdered kids' 'I LAUGHED AT HIM' Ex-Para Brexit voter, 81, mocks childish yob who threw milkshake at him STAY OF BREXECUTION Doomed May could cling on for two more weeks and quit after Trump visit PIPE DREAM Horny teen gets his penis stuck while having sex with a metal sewage pipe
She worked up to 87 and a half hours and seven days a week, getting up at 4.30am, and had just five weeks’ holiday in more than three decades.
Lucy told the court “she never had a good relationship with her mother”, adding she was their late dad Frank’s “favourite” and “blue-eyed girl” because of their shared passion for dairy farming.
As well as throwing out Jane’s appeal against the £1.1m payout, Lord Justice Lewison, who sat with Lord Justice Moylan and Lady Justice Rose, also dismissed Lucy’s bid to have it upped to around £1.6m.

GET your career on track with a job as a train driver.
Record investment has the rail industry expanding quickly and 1,000 new drivers are needed each year.Train driver Laura McDonald at London Bridge StationDavid New - The Sun
The roles offer apprenticeship qualifications and flexible hours, while bosses are full steam ahead in their efforts to recruit more women — such as Laura McDonald — and staff from ethnic minorities.
This week the Train Driver Academy was launched to centralise hiring and training for rail operators. New drivers will get a mix of online and on-the-job training over the course of a year.
Applicants must be aged 20-plus but don’t need formal qualifications or experience.
You need to pass a medical check, including eyesight, colour vision and hearing.Here’s how to get a job as a train driver and earn up to £65k a yearDavid New - The Sun
Academy chair Kirsty Derry says: “Our railway brings Britain to life, connecting communities, delivering goods and reducing road congestion. Drivers are at the heart of what we do and with the industry’s exciting investments in technology we need to make sure the skills and capability of our people develop at the same pace.
“The new academy and level-three apprenticeship are exciting innovations supported by the entire industry. Driving is a fantastic career path and this is an exciting time to join the industry.”
Salaries range from £44,000 up to £65,500 and benefits include free or heavily discounted travel for drivers and their famillies.
Angie Doll of Southern and Gatwick Express adds: “The railway has been seen as a traditionally male-dominated industry and we want to change that. There is a sense of equality among depots and teams. Everyone works hard and is paid and treated the same. That is not always the case in other sectors.”Find out more and apply at thetraindriveracademy.com. Laura's on track
Laura, 36, says: “I always considered driving trains a man’s career and never thought about it for myself until I met a female driver.
“I’m so grateful she showed me the possibilities because this job is perfect.
“You work shifts, so you get a bit of flexibility, there are great benefits, you are paid well and there is real career progression. I work with some amazing people and have made some great friends. It is like a big family.”
Laura, of Honor Oak Park in South East London, adds: “To be a good driver, you need focus, concentration and the ability to work shifts.
“The earliest start for me is 4.10am and latest finish is 1.45am. I love being responsible for the train during peak times, when I can have 1,000-plus people on board. I get them to their destinations safely and on time, keeping them fully informed and hopefully happy with their experience.
“The view from the front of the train is great and I miss the job when I’m off work.”Amazon job is safe

STAY late, work hard and an asset to your firm? Then why have you not been promoted? We asked wellbeing expert Jordan Carter, at men’s gifts site gearhungry.com.
He says: “If it’s happening to you, go to your boss and discuss why this has happened in a professional and constructive manner.”
Here are Jordan’s other tips:LOOSE TALK COSTS PROMOTIONS: Don’t wait until you climb the ladder to act more professionally. Instead, behave like you’re in your dream job. Don’t join in office gossip or badmouth the firm. TIME IS IRRELEVANT: Length of service is not a free pass to promotion. Instead, showcase evidence of your skills and how you have progressed. SPEAK UP: If you don’t voice a desire to be promoted, your boss may assume you are happy as you are. Ask for a performance review every year to set out where you want to go. YOU ARE NOT APPROACHABLE: If you are often in a bad mood and not partaking in social activities, it’s unlikely you’ll be promoted. Be part of the bigger picture. SHOUT ABOUT SUCCESSES: You don’t have to be arrogant, but self-promotion is essential to climb the ranks. Never assume colleagues will just “come across” your wins. GOT a story?

COPS believe a woman aged 102 battered her 92-year-old neighbour to death at a retirement complex in northern France.
The elderly woman, who has not been named by the authorities, has now been taken to a psychiatric hospital in the wake of the shocking attack.
Google The shocking attack took place at this care home in northern France[/caption]
She reportedly told one of her carers, at the home in Chézy-sur-Marne, that she had “killed someone” on Saturday morning.
Her neighbour was then found dead in her own bed with a severely bruised face.
A post mortem examination concluded the cause of death was “strangulation and blows to the head”.
The 102-year-old was “in a very agitated state, confused, and told the carer that she had killed someone”, according to a prosecutor.
Psychiatric tests are now being carried out on the elderly murder suspect, to determine whether or not she was criminally responsible for her actions at the time.MOST READ IN NEWS CHILLING SLIP Maxine Carr caught over Soham murders thanks to key mistake in TV interview CARE SICKOS Smirking care home staff attack autistic patient & use 'psychological torture' 'not knowing is torture' Dad of vanished teen sometimes 'envies parents of murdered kids' 'I LAUGHED AT HIM' Ex-Para Brexit voter, 81, mocks childish yob who threw milkshake at him STAY OF BREXECUTION Doomed May could cling on for two more weeks and quit after Trump visit PIPE DREAM Horny teen gets his penis stuck while having sex with a metal sewage pipe

GOODWOOD is a real teaser for the weekend and I’ve got a couple of fancies through their Friday card.
The Listed heat at 3.30 is by far the best race of the day and it’s where we go for the NAP.
For the second day in a row I’m taking on a John Gosden favourite.
This time I’m with FIFTH POSITION (Goodwood, 3.30, NAP) for the Roger Varian team, with the yard showing no signs of ending their red-hot form.
It looks wide open, but Varian’s three-year-old was mightily impressive when battling back to beat Space Blues at Nottingham last time.
That form has been franked nicely – the runner-up hosed up at York and is already rated 103.LATEST IN RACING MULLEN IT OVER Top tipster Steve Mullen's top racing preview for Friday, May 24 THURSDAY REPORT The Sun Racing team reviews the action from Goodwood and Sandown FIVE STARS Sun Racing looks back on five of the best betting coups in racing history JACK THE TIPPER Our top shrewdie shares an each-way bet to die for on Thursday CAL CALLS IT Your best bets across the cards on Thursday as Sandown takes the limelight GET YA NEWS Your one-stop shop for all of Thursday's racing action BEE LUCKY All you need for Thursday's evening card at Sandown with Sun Racing's preview STOUTE SPECIAL Top tipster Templegate's best bets for the racing today MULLEN IT OVER Top tipster Steve Mullen's top racing preview for Thursday, May 23 WEDNESDAY REPORT The Sun Racing team reviews the action from Yarmouth & Ayr GAME OF FURLONGS Five horses whose names were inspired by the hit TV show DERBY DELIGHTS Remembering an Epsom hero... Workforce destroys his rivals in 2010
He looked to relish every step of that battle up the home straight, and this step up in trip looks what he needs already, despite also possessing plenty of speed in his pedigree.
Private Secretary will be all the rage for Frankie and Gosden, but he has questions to answer and it’s strange he’s suddenly been taken out of the Derby.
At the forecast odds Fifth Position is my bet and he could even be an each-way price if you’re snappy.
In the previous race DESIROUS (Goodwood, 2.55) looked a horse to follow last season and could be smart this summer.
Her form is very taking – runs behind Qabala and Dandhu read well – and an opening mark of 82 looks generous.
She was still green after a few runs last year, and hopefully she’s taken a step forwards over the winter.
She will likely be the favourite and is worse off with Pennywhistle who she only just beat back in October. But plenty went wrong that day at Kempton and she looked beat a long way from home before cracking on in good style.

THE Easter 2020 bank holiday might seem a long way off but there’s no harm in being prepared.
While Brits will be indulging in chocolate during their four days off, kids had better make the most of it too because there’s actually not long to go until they’ll be back in their classrooms.
Alamy The Easter Bank Holiday weekend has arrived[/caption]When is Easter 2020?
In 2020 it falls on Sunday, April 12.
Good Friday is April 10, and the Easter Monday bank holiday is on April 13.
The date is decided by a complex set of calculations based on observations of the moon.
In early Christianity, different churches used different methods, leading to disagreements which remain unresolved centuries later.
Eastern and Western churches continue to celebrate Easter according to different calendars, although sometimes by chance the festivals coincide.When do the schools go back after breaking up for Easter 2020?
Schools usually get around two weeks off for the Easter break.
Not every school will break up at the same time but schools will likely break up around April 6, 2020 and return on April 20.
Other schools might take the two weeks either side of Easter so the two bank holidays fall within the Easter holidays.
Dates vary in different areas so you should check your school or council’s website.The four-day Easter weekend in 2019 kicks off on Good Friday, April 19How is the date of Easter decided and why does it change each year?
In Western Christianity, Easter Sunday must always follow the first full moon after the spring equinox.
Passover typically begins on the night of the first full moon after the spring equinox, except in “leap months” when it is the second full moon, as in 2016.
Because the precise timing of observing the full moon can vary in each time zone, the Church instead calculates the date from ecclesiastical calendar.
This divides 19 normal calendar years into 235 months of 30 and 29 days each, with the ecclesiastical full moon on the 14th day of each lunar month.
The “paschal full moon” – from the Aramaic for Passover – is the one that falls on or after the spring equinox.
Easter Day is the first Sunday after the paschal full moon – so if the full moon is on a Sunday, Easter will be a week later.
Therefore the earliest Easter can be is March 22, and the latest is April 25.
The latest Easter in recent years was April 23 in the year 2000, and the earliest was March 23 in 2008.
It will not fall in March again until 2024 when it is on March 31.
In 1943 a full moon fell on March 20, just before the equinox, so the paschal full moon was the next one on April 18.

Christians in the East use the Julian calendar, 13 days behind the Gregorian calendar used in the West, so the full moon and equinox are calculated according to a different date.
This means in 2020 the Eastern church will celebrate Easter on April 19, a week after Western churches.
Some years, such as in 2010, 2011, 2014 and 2017, the two churches celebrated Easter on the same day. This will happen next in 2025.
In other years the festivals may be up to five weeks apart, as happened in 2013 and 2016.

ASTONISHING images show more than 200 climbers queuing to reach the summit of Mount Everest yesterday.
Clear weather sparked a busy day with teams of people lining up for hours risking frostbites and being killed on top of the world’s highest mountain.

Hundreds of people attempted to reach the summit from both Nepal and China while one climber Donald Lynn Cash, 55, from Utah, US, lost his life from altitude sickness.
Some mountaineers complained of a similar traffic jam on Sunday with the popularity of the mountain attracting large numbers of unskilled climbers.
More than 4,000 people have reached the summit of Everest since Sir Edmund Hillary and sherpa Tenzing Norgay made the first ascent in 1953, according to the Himalayan Database.
The number of climbers has skyrocketed in recent years because of competition between expedition organisers which has caused costs to plummet, reports NDTV.
Brit Harry Taylor, who was the first person to scale Everest’s northeast ridge in 1988, told The Times that amateur climbers are risking their lives paying ill-equipped expedition operators and corrupt local officials.
Many inexperienced adventurers pay up to £55,000 for a chance to reach the peak – and Taylor fears for the worst if the situation is allowed to continue.
He said: “Everest is a cash cow for them.
“The Nepali government will try to push operators out who have the highest safety standards.”MOST READ IN NEWS CHILLING SLIP Maxine Carr caught over Soham murders thanks to key mistake in TV interview CARE SICKOS Smirking care home staff attack autistic patient & use 'psychological torture' 'not knowing is torture' Dad of vanished teen sometimes 'envies parents of murdered kids' 'I LAUGHED AT HIM' Ex-Para Brexit voter, 81, mocks childish yob who threw milkshake at him STAY OF BREXECUTION Doomed May could cling on for two more weeks and quit after Trump visit PIPE DREAM Horny teen gets his penis stuck while having sex with a metal sewage pipe
“Some local operators are so cheap they put huge pressure on the western outfits to cut costs just to remain in the market…
“I fear a cataclysmic disaster if the western operators have to shut up shop due to being pushed out.”
Nearly 300 people have died trying to climb the famous mountain since the first attempt to scale it in 1922.
Since 2010, there have been 73 deaths on Everest and almost 8,000 climbs above base camp.
Melting glaciers are exposing bodies once entombed in ice on the world’s highest graveyard.
Today, a new search began for Irish dad-of-one Seamus Lawless, 39, who fell after reaching the top of Everest.
Seamus, from Bray, Co Wicklow, was descending from the summit when he fell from an altitude of 8,300m while in the balcony area near the mountain’s summit last Thursday.
The Himalayan Times has reported that a team of nine, led by Irish mountaineer Noel Hanna who was part of Lawless’ original expedition, launched a search operation today.

FINGERS crossed for decent weather and a picnic this bank holiday weekend?
Chilling out with outdoor nibbles is a great way to get friends and family together but costs can mount up quickly.Here’s how to chill with outdoors nibbles without blowing the budgetGetty - Contributor
You don’t need to blow the budget, though. Here are my tips for putting on a picnic for pennies…BULK BUY: The more friends you get together, the bigger the savings to be had. Invite a bunch of pals and ask each of them to bring a dish. This way, you can have a bit of everything you like without overspending at the deli. If cooking is not your thing, take advantage of supermarket summer spread options. Asda offers a great 3-for-£5 deal on picnic tapas — saving around £1, which will soon add up if you bulk buy. SAVE: £1. BARGAIN BOOZE: Do not even think about a picnic without a glass of fizz. Martini Prosecco, currently £6 at Asda, will go perfectly with those nibbles — plus it saves £4 on the usual £10 price. SAVE: £4. DO NOT BUY NEW: Recycle what you have at home. Old towels, for example, can be repurposed as picnic blankets — which saves forking out for a new one from Argos, costing £10.99. Plus, the towels are multi-use — as well as sitting on them, you can roll them up and use them as pillows, or clean hands with them. And avoid posh cutlery — Poundland has a basic 80-item pack for £1. SAVE: £10.99 on blanket. COOL BAG: One thing you may want to invest in is a decent cool bag to keep your food fresh and your drinks cool. B&M is selling a cooler bag with ice pack for just £3.99 — a snip compared to a similar option by Thermos, £22.79. SAVE: £18.80. Deal of the day Save £60.95 on this Orla Kiely ladies stem watch

STACEY Solomon has given birth to her first child with boyfriend Joe Swash.
The Loose Women presenter, 29, went into labour “a lot earlier than planned” as she was only eight months pregnant and appeared on the chat show just yesterday.Stacey Solomon just after giving birthInstagram
Taking to Instagram, Joe admitted he was in awe of his girlfriend and “witnessed the impossible” as Stacey gave birth.
He shared a photo of Stacey just after giving birth with her newborn nestled on her chest.
“This morning. A lot earlier than planned I watched the love of my life, bring a new life into the world,” he wrote.
“We are overwhelmed, overjoyed and apprehensive of what’s to come. Mummy and baby are well and resting.
“We are so grateful for all of the love, support and positivity we’ve received over the last 8 months.Joe Swash shared the happy news on InstagramInstagram
“I’m lost for words to describe how I’m feeling. So for now, I’m going to spend the next few days and the rest of my life falling more in love with these two humans.
“I didn’t think it possible but, today I witnessed the impossible. My partner, My love, my life, you are a super human. I am forever in awe. Joe X”
Earlier this week, Stacey admitted she isn’t concerned by her looks and accepted there will be “placenta everywhere” as the new baby arrives.
And she was looking forward to eating fast food on the way home from the hospital.Stacey Solomon has revealed she still feels like a ‘single mum’ despite expecting boyfriend Joe Swash’s baby
She told The Sun Online: “I have given birth twice so I know the mess that I get in. What is the point in having a beauty treatment before? It’s a waste of money.
“The midwives aren’t going to care either. I will be puking up and there will be placenta everywhere and I will have a baby coming out of my vagina, I don’t think I will care.
“I’m going to spend the money on a McDonalds on the way home from hospital.”The Loose Women panellist says Joe supports her and the children but she would never ask him to take them on
Stacey also revealed she still feels like a “single mum” – despite expecting boyfriend Joe’s baby.
She said her two children Zachery and Leighton are her “sole responsibility” and she doesn’t expect any man to take them on.
In an exclusive interview with The Sun Online, Stacey said: “Joe and I speak about this a lot and he is an incredible role model in the kids’ lives.
“He supports me fully and he adores me and the children and it is wonderful.
“But still fundamentally I feel like a single mum because they are solely my responsibility and I wouldn’t ask for anyone to take them on.”
Stacey’s comments come after she admitted to feeling “guilty” about having three children by different dads amid fears they would have a “confusing upbringing.”Stacey celebrated with a baby shower last week

The former X Factor star says she’s relieved after being asked to rejoin the Loose Women panel following her maternity leave.
She said: “Oh my God, it’s my dream job. You literally sit with your friends and have a laugh and you are part of a really amazing team.
“It’s a real privilege to have a platform to have a voice and I don’t think I will ever not love it.
“They have been really good about saying take the time that you need and they will have me back which is really amazing.
“You are so replaceable and if you’re not there then someone else is going to jump at the chance to do it. Nothing is guaranteed and we are all freelance.”
BRITAIN went to vote today in the EU Parliament elections as Theresa May continued to battle for her political career.
Here’s when people will know the outcome and how the whole electoral system works.Voters in the UK made their decision today although most EU countries vote on SundayAlamy Live NewsWhen are the results announced?
In the UK, the results are expected to begin being announced late on Sunday – three days after the voting takes place.
Voting across the EU takes place between 23 and 26 May so not every member state votes on the same day.
The Netherlands and the UK vote on May 23, followed by Ireland and the Czech Republic on Friday.
Slovakia and Latvia then vote on Saturday and all other EU member countries will go to the polls on Sunday.
The full results are not expected until after May 27.
The traditional way to place your vote is going to a polling station and marking a cross on your ballot paper.Theresa May and her husband voted in the morningAP:Associated Press
You can find out where your closest station is by going on the Electoral Commission website or looking at the back of your polling card.
Some people opt to vote by proxy, which means choosing someone else to vote on your behalf.
You can also ask for a postal vote.
BBC1 will broadcast the results live from 10pm on May 26 with a special election programme.
Sky News will also be covering the event with live coverage.How do the EU Parliament elections work?
All EU citizens, as long as they are registered to vote, have the right to vote in the European elections.
The voting take place using the D’Hondt system of proportional representation which means the number of MEPs a party wins is directly related to the percentage of votes it receives.
Voters choose a single party instead of an individual candidate.
This means all political parties have the chance to send representatives to the European Parliament.
The proportion of seats given by a party directly reflects the proportion of votes won.
In the first round of counting, the party with the most votes is allocated a seat for the candidate at the top of its list.
Under the D’Hondt method, each party’s total number of votes is repeatedly divided – until all seats are filled – by divisor 1 + the number of seats already allocated.Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn was spotted outside his polling station in Islington, north LondonReuters
If it is still top it gains another seat. If not, whichever party has the most votes then gets the seat instead.
The original vote count of the largest party in each round is divided by one plus the total number of seats they have already been allocated, until all the seats for the region have been handed out.
Although the method is considered to be one of the most constant and representative forms of voting, the results do not exactly reflect the votes, as this would lead to parties winning fractions of seats.
EU voters go to the polls every five years to elect Members of the European Parliament (MEPs).
Each country has a specific number of seats based on their population size.
The smallest is Malta and they have six seats, whereas the largest is Germany with 96.
There are 751 MEPs in total and the UK has 73.
Candidates can stand independently or with a party.
They will represent a region of their country, and the number of MEPs for each region depends on population.Why is the UK taking part in the EU elections?
The government confirmed the country would be taking part in the EU elections in early May after May administration was forced to push back the date it was leaving the bloc because MPs could not get a majority for her withdrawal agreement.Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party is predicted to get the most seatsAFP or licensors
As the UK was still in the EU at the time of the elections it is forced to take part even though the majority of voters said they wanted to leave in the referendum vote.
The UK went to the polls to elect MEPs on May 23, 2019.
The vote is said to have cost around £150million to hold.
If a Brexit deal is agreed before the election date or soon after then the UK’s MEPS will not take their seats.most read in politics STAY OF BREXECUTION Doomed May could cling on for two more weeks and quit after Trump visit grin when eur winning Beaming Farage votes in £150m EU election as PM & Jez face wipeout MILKFAKE Defiant Nigel Farage blasts claims he hid from milkshake mob on campaign bus BACK TO THE POLLS European Parliament elections TODAY- here's the candidates & latest odds BREXIT MEANS BREXIT What is The Brexit Party and how is Nigel Farage involved? #DENIEDMYVOTE Brit expats complain they've been stopped from voting in Euro elections
But if that doesn’t happen then the newly elected MEPs will take their place in the European Parliament – which sits in Brussels and Strasbourg – in early July.
At this stage, how long the UK MEPs will continue to sit is anyone’s guess.
KATE Middleton’s beautiful garden at Chelsea Flower Show delighted Prince George and Princess Charlotte so much they snuck back in for a secret visit today.
A royal source told Fabulous Digital the duchess arrived at 7.15am with her three children as the young royals had “wanted to get up early to water the garden”.

The RHS Chelsea Flower Show officially opens at 8am, so George and Charlotte will have had time to play in Kate’s Back to Nature garden in peace before guests arrived.
The popular flower show launched this week and the Duchess of Cambridge, 37, has been back for a number of visits – including with Prince William and the Queen.
Prince George, five, Princess Charlotte, four, and one-year-old Prince Louis were previously photographed excitedly exploring the garden with their parents.
Sweet snaps showed the young Cambridge kids scrambling over rocks and grinning on a swing as they made the most of the duchess’ garden.
Handout - Getty Princess Charlotte was previously pictured swinging in the Back to Nature garden[/caption]
The family-friendly British garden also has a treehouse, an area to toast marshmallows over an open fire and a spot to pick wild strawberries.
The young kids are also said to have played a key part in the creation of Kate’s garden, which she co-designed with architects Andree Davies and Adam White and the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS).
Kensington Palace said that over the past months Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis have “helped The Duchess gather moss, leaves and twigs to help decorate” the garden.
They added: “Hazel sticks collected by the family were also used to make the garden’s den.”
Kate has previously said she has “fond memories” of being outdoors as a child and is passing that passion on to her children.

The Duchess told the BBC in an interview with Monty Don: “I really feel that nature and being interactive outdoors has huge benefits on our physical and mental wellbeing, particularly for young children.
“I really hope that this woodland that we have created really inspires families, kids and communities to get outside, enjoy nature and the outdoors, and spend quality time together.”
The garden is at the forefront of Kate’s lifelong work on early child development and her mission to support efforts that give every child the best possible start in life.

Kate’s involvement with the 2019 RHS garden at the Chelsea Flower Show was first revealed earlier in the year.
Her garden’s centrepiece is a high-platform tree house atop a chestnut trunk, clad in stag horn oak, hazel and larch cladding that draws inspiration from a bird or animal nest.
Interaction with the natural environment will be encouraged through the garden’s “multi-sensory” green and blue plant scheme.
Kate remembered the late Diana, Princess of Wales by including forget-me-nots, her favourite flowers.

A BRIT holidaymaker vomited blood after contracting a deadly parasite on an all-inclusive TUI break to Mexico.
Chris Gillian was on a special anniversary trip with his wife Marisa when he started to feel dizzy and rushed back to his room where he was violently sick.Chris Gillian was struck down with a parasitic infection called cyclospora on an all-inclusive TUI break to MexicoHe was on a special anniversary trip with his wife Marisa when he started to feel ill
The new dad was struck down with a parasitic infection called cyclospora, which he claims TUI failed to warn him about when he booked.
Cyclospora is usually caught from eating food contaminated with faeces.
Chris says he feared he was going to die after catching the bug from a meal eaten on his resort, which has not been named.
He is one of 400 tourists who all say they were struck down with the parasite over a three-year period.
Chris and Marisa booked two weeks abroad through TUI’s sister company First Choice.CONTAMINATED WITH POO
In ITV’s Holidays: All-Inclusives Uncovered? Chris claims he started to feel ill a week into the holiday.
Chris said: “We went out for a meal on our first night and had a really nice time. But almost a week in, I’d woken up feeling funny.
“Me and my wife went and sat by the poolside and it started to get progressively worse, I started to get really bad headaches and feel really dizzy so we went back to the hotel room.
“I remember laying on the bed and I just had this sudden urge that I was going to throw up. I barely made it to the sink and just threw up what I can only describe as just blood.”
Chris was rushed to hospital where he was given painkillers and antibiotics to flush out the infection.
He remembers a doctor who couldn’t speak English repeating the word “parasite” while he was treated.‘VIOLENTLY SICK’
Chris was discharged from the hospital after 24 hours but had to follow a restricted diet and drink no alcohol for the rest of the holiday.
Thankfully the couple’s insurance covered the thousands of pounds in medical fees.
Public Health England issued warnings about cyclospora but it’s claimed that TUI hadn’t told customers ahead of travel.
Instead they were given a letter giving advice based around personal hygiene and food preparation, even if they were on all-inclusive break where they’re unlikely to do any cooking.
But Chris says neither he or his wife were given the letter.
He now says he wants someone to “take responsibility” for his ruined holiday.What is cyclospora?
Cyclospora is in infection of the bowel caused by a parasite called called Cyclospora cayetanensis.
The most common symptom is diarrhoea but sufferers can also experience weight loss, vomitting and stomach cramps.
Cyclospora doesn’t usually pose a serious risk and can be easily treated using antibiotics.
Most people who caught the infection picked it up while on holiday to the Caribbean, Mexico, Central and South America, south and east Asia, the Middle East and Africa.
It’s spread by eating food or drinking water contaminated with human poo carrying the parasite.
Chris said: “‘I want someone to take responsibility I want someone to hold their hands up and say yes we knew there was a problem but unfortunately we didn’t fix it that time, it’s as simple as that.
“I didn’t know what was happening to me. I don’t want anyone to go through what I went through.”
Lawyer Nick Harris is part of a firm representing Chris and hundreds of others who became ill after contracting cyclospora.
Mr Harris said: “There was a duty placed on TUI to tell customers before travelling to Mexico, the moment that they knew of an outbreak in the resort, something that was likely to affect people.
“If you imagine people who have for instance poor immune systems travelling to a resort like that and then succumbing to an illness like cyclospora, that’s dangerous.”MOST READ IN NEWS CHILLING SLIP Maxine Carr caught over Soham murders thanks to key mistake in TV interview CARE SICKOS Smirking care home staff attack autistic patient & use 'psychological torture' 'not knowing is torture' Dad of vanished teen sometimes 'envies parents of murdered kids' 'I LAUGHED AT HIM' Ex-Para Brexit voter, 81, mocks childish yob who threw milkshake at him STAY OF BREXECUTION Doomed May could cling on for two more weeks and quit after Trump visit PIPE DREAM Horny teen gets his penis stuck while having sex with a metal sewage pipe
A statement provided by TUI to the programme said: “We’re sorry to hear of Mr Gillan’s experience. As this matter is now subject to legal proceedings it would be inappropriate to comment at this time.
“We’d like to reassure customers that we regularly audit all of the hotels we feature in respect of health and safety, including hygiene.”

INSPIRATIONAL Billy Monger believes he has proved he is the real deal after winning his first race since losing BOTH legs in a horror crash.
The 20-year-old dubbed Billy Whizz showed he was Billy Wow as he came from the back of the field to win the Pau GP in only his fourth outing at European Formula 3 level.Billy Monger says he has proved it was more than just talk when he said he could win races, with F1 his ultimate goalGetty Images - GettyBrit ace Billy Monger wants to race his way to the top – by reaching Formula OneBBC
Monger told Sun Sport: “I think I’ve shown that all the promises I made that I was going to win races were real and not bull.
“I said it was my dream to drive in F1.
“Maybe the other drivers this year knew my story but they didn’t know me behind the wheel. They do now.”
Monger’s win in the wet, slicing through the field, came barely two years after having his legs amputated after the shunt at Donington Park looked to have ended his F1 hopes.
The youngster from Surrey captured the nation’s hearts in a riveting documentary charting his comeback from life-changing surgery and saw him as one of the stars of the Beeb’s Sports Personality of the Year awards.
But that was just the start of the hard work for Monger, who had to increase his physical strength by a staggering 40 per cent to work the controls on his new model Team Carlin car.
Parents Rob and Amanda were at the street circuit in France, while sister Bonnie was “at home screaming her head off at the TV” as he took the chequered flag.
Billy added: “The feeling was sheer joy for me, I was just so proud and happy.
“The car is so much more of a physical challenge than the one I was in last year and it’s been an emotional ride to get here.
“I’d made a few mistakes which had cost me in the first couple of races and even in qualifying.
“But when it started raining in the green flag lap before the start we decided that going for wet tires was the call.
“It was the brave one, too. Once I got the tires right I was lapping two seconds a lap quicker than the field.
“Then it was just a question of overtaking people, which was harder because it was a street circuit not a track.most read in motorsport 'A LEGEND HAS LEFt us' F1 icon Niki Lauda dies aged 70 - months after lung transplant Why is the Monaco F1 Grand Prix practice on Thursday?

ADDING to the long list of thriller movies that have already come out this year, The Perfection promises to be one hell of a ride.
The movie has garnered rave reviews by many and it’s OUT TOMORROW on Netflix. Here’s what you need to know…Allison Williams leads the cast in The PerfectionNetflixWhat is it about?
After the death of her mother from a drawn out illness, troubled musical prodigy Charlotte (Allison Williams) heads to Shanghai to reconnect with her former mentors Anton (Steven Weber) and Paloma (Alaina Huffman.)
But on her arrival she meets Lizzie, the latest star pupil of her former school the Bachoff Academy of Music.
Their meeting sends both musicians down a sinister road with some very shocking consequences.Who’s in the cast? The flick is set to be a thriller and has already received rave reviewsNetflix
Girls’ star Allison takes on the lead role of Charlotte.
The character is a troubled musical prodigy who’s been caring for her sick mother.
But after her mum passes away she travels to Shanghai to reconnect with her former mentors Anton (Steven Weber) and Paloma (Alaina Huffman) from her old school, the Bachoff Academy of Music.
While on this journey of rediscovery she encounters the latest star pupil of her former school – Lizzie – and that’s when things start going awry.
Speaking of her new role, Allison revealed that she learnt a lot about playing a complex character who undergoes a transformation as the film progresses from her role Rose in Get Out.
She told In Session Film: “I think I learnt a lot about how to do this very specific kind of thing with Get Out.”
Logan, 29, plays new musical prodigy Lizzie.
Her character is plagued with problems as seen in the gruesome trailer where she can be seen hysterical after discovering insects crawling under her skin.
Lizzie is embroiled in an unusual friendship with Charlotte, where the two violinists compete against each other for top spot.
Steven, 58, plays mentor Anton, who no doubt fuels the competition between the two musical stars.
The actor is best known for his role of NCIS: New Orleans.
Alaina, 39, plays the other mentor Paloma – who the two sparring girls are no doubt vying for the attention of.
The actress is best known for her roles in Smallville and Supernatural.More on Netflix prepare to be thrilled What is The Perfection about and what are the reviews like? strange experience Stranger Things comes to Secret Cinema in London - how to get tickets? all new content New on Netflix June 2019 – movies, TV and original series OVERKILL Netflix fans moan The Society is full of sex with NINE erotic scenes in 2 episodes BETTER TOGETHER Clever Netflix trick lets you binge-watch TV with pals from ANYWHERE Guess Who's Back Will there be a Riverdale season 4 and when will it come out? What are the reviews like?
The reviews have been largely positive from critics.
Movie review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes has given the horror flick an impressive rating of 73%, with the average holding at a healthy 6.76/10.
Many have described it as ‘unpredictable’ but rather a review by The Guardian accused the film of being confusing, saying: “The film’s indefinability is admirable while also frustrating.”
It even went so far to conclude its review saying: “Cruelly titled, The Perfection is far from it.”
However a review by Digital Spy completely disagreed, saying: “For some, it might prove to be frustrating, but writer-director Richard Shepard has carefully crafted his horror movie to climax in an outrageous finale, linking together everything that’s come before.
“It’s not just twists for twists’ sake; there’s a devious plan in play, even if you don’t get what it is until the end.”
The review also applauded the movie for going of the beaten track, writing: “You can’t ever accuse the movie of playing it safe or just following the expected formula.”
Sounds like it’s worth checking out for yourself, that’s only if you can handle it of course.
HEARTBROKEN pupils have told of the tragic final moments of a young schoolboy who died after he “fell off a school climbing frame.”
The 11-year-old apparently hit his head after falling backwards from the playground equipment on Wednesday lunchtime.

He was rushed to hospital from the Cherry Lane primary school in West Drayton, west London but died a few hours later.
Devastated mums and dads revealed the Year Six boy was playing a game with other pupils when the accident happened.
One mother, told the Evening Standard: “It’s a game they all play. The aim is to get from one side to the other. There was no intention of someone being hurt.
“It was obviously a complete accident. My son said his friend had fallen backwards and hit his head.”
She had been told of the accident by her son, who is also an 11-year-old pupil at the school.
The mum added: “He said to me, Mummy I saw him and he fell and hit his head on the floor.
“He told me: ‘He lay there holding his head with his eyes open and when he tried to get up that’s when his eyes closed and he went to sleep.’”
Another parent said: “My son said he saw him fall backwards. He thought he had only broken his arm.
“I can’t believe that he died. It is so sad.”
In a statement a spokesman for Cherry Lane School said: “Our priority is to support the emotional well-being of our pupils.”
The playground at the west London was reportedly cordoned off for the most of the afternoon.
A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: “Police were called at 11.50am on Wednesday, May 22 to a primary school in West Drayton following reports of a child taken unwell.MOST READ IN NEWS CHILLING SLIP Maxine Carr caught over Soham murders thanks to key mistake in TV interview CARE SICKOS Smirking care home staff attack autistic patient & use 'psychological torture' 'not knowing is torture' Dad of vanished teen sometimes 'envies parents of murdered kids' 'I LAUGHED AT HIM' Ex-Para Brexit voter, 81, mocks childish yob who threw milkshake at him STAY OF BREXECUTION Doomed May could cling on for two more weeks and quit after Trump visit PIPE DREAM Horny teen gets his penis stuck while having sex with a metal sewage pipe

“Officers are liaising with the school and local partners. Enquiries are ongoing.”
DEAR DEIDRE: I’VE been having an affair with a married colleague since my husband left me.
I feel as though I’ll never be good enough for anyone. I was second best in my husband’s eyes and now I’m second best for someone else’s husband.We’ve been having the most amazing sex everGetty - Contributor
My lover is older — he’s 58, I’m 42 — and senior at work but I’ve always had a crush on him. I knew my husband had left me with a load of debt and was very sympathetic.
I was surprised to find him easy to talk to. We spoke more and more as friends and we ended up together after a work night out when he came back to my place. I was so nervous as I’d never been with any man other than my husband before but he made me feel wanted.
He was gentle but passionate. I felt guilty immediately afterwards but thrilled too. I assumed it would be a one-off but he texted me saying he wanted to keep things going.
He said he likes me and, although he knows it’s wrong, he wants to remain friends and lovers. He stays at my flat a couple of nights a week, telling his wife he’s away with work.I feel a little guilty because I know he’s marriedGetty - Contributor
We do normal things like cook meals and watch TV. We spend as much time together as we can but then he has to leave and I’m all alone. I’ve developed genuine feelings for him.
I know I sound like a stupid woman who lets a married man use her for sex and then go back to his happy family life, but when we’re together it doesn’t feel that way.
The sex is amazing. I’ve never felt anything like I do for him but I’m full of guilt. I’ve told him I don’t want him to leave his wife or ruin his life but I’m in turmoil daily.
DEIDRE SAYS: I’m sorry but it’s clear your lover has no intentions of leaving his wife anyway – at least not while he can have the best of both worlds.
You are falling for him but he is not going to commit to you. I’m sure he loves the sex and being with you but he seems pretty comfortable where he is.Popular Dear Deidre problems first cut Caught my girl in bed with another man... then he did something I didn't expect SEX WITH SISTER I had sex with my sister and now we are having a full-on relationship HOTEL HELL My girl's wild step-sister seduced me in toilets and I'm disgusted with myself Little secret My brother-in-law is my daughter's real father... and my husband has no idea More, more, more!

Rehearse how you are going to end your affair firmly but without ruining your working relationship. Say it has been great but you realise you are now looking for a proper relationship which is out in the open.
You now need to work on the low self-esteem that led you to put up with this. Take up some new interest that brings with it the chance of making interesting new friends – and a better chance of meeting a man who wants you 100 per cent exclusively.

DEAR DEIDRE: ANY time my girlfriend gives me oral sex, she cries. It makes me feel very uneasy.

I worry she is forcing herself to do something she doesn’t like – and as a result, I don’t enjoy sex so much myself. I stopped sex once completely after she started crying but then she got mad at me for “overthinking it”.

EASTENDERS fans think that Bianca Jackson will go on a furious rampage when she finds out about daughter Tiffany’s rape horror upon her return to Walford.
Last night, The Sun Online exclusively revealed that soap legend Patsy Palmer will be reprising her role for Bianca’s third Albert Square stint in 25 years.Patsy Palmer is reprising her ‘Enders role for the third time in 25 yearsHandout
Excited fans have been speculating what could be in store during the flame-haired character’s return – and Tiffany’s recent ordeal isn’t far from their minds.
Writing on a forum, one viewer wrote: “Is Sonia going to tell her about what happened to Tiffany?”
A second remarked: “Has Sonia not told Bianca about Tiffany being groomed and then being told to sleep with men?”
Another added: “I expect to see some fireworks between Bianca and Sonia.”Fans questioned why Bianca didn’t return amid Tiffany’s gang ordealFans accused Bianca of ‘neglecting’ her daughter – who returned to Albert Square alone last yearBBC
Others questioned why Bianca’s return didn’t coincide with Tiffany’s gang involvement, commenting: “Really and truthfully both Ricky and Bianca should have returned when Tiffany was having trouble with the drugs and the gangs.”
Another wrote: “Surely she would have been needed when Tiff was going through her troubles!!”
A third speculated: “It makes sense for her to face the consequences of her neglect of Tiffany.”
One fan confessed that Bianca’s absence in her teen daughter’s life “has been an issue” for them while watching the show.Tiffany has struggled immensely without her mumBianca’s uncle Jack and sister Sonia promised Tiffany that they wouldn’t tell her mum what had happened
Viewers were left heartbroken earlier this year when Tiffany, played by Maisie Smith, broke down as she told her great uncle Jack Branning that she had been raped after getting involved with Evie Steel’s drugs gang.
Tiffany refused to report the crime to the police and begged her relatives not to tell her mum about what had happened.
Jack promised not to tell Bianca about her daughter’s rape, insisting: “It’s not down to me to tell you how to handle this.
“You trusted me and I should honour that.”
However, Bianca is sure to be left fuming if she does learn the truth – especially after Jack and her sister, Sonia Jackson, kept it a secret from her.
The beloved character is famed for her fiery temper and doesn’t hold back when it comes to giving people what for.
“She has yet to get her scripts but she will no doubt be at the centre of drama when she returns in the Autumn.
“She starts filming in the next few weeks and can’t wait to get going again.”
Patsy joined EastEnders in 1993, left in 1999, and returned for a second stint in 2008 before quitting again in 2014.Bianca Jackson's EastEnders History
PATSY Palmer first joined the BBC One soap as fiery Bianca in 1993 and she has been at the centre of her fair share of drama over the years.
The daughter of Carol Jackson and David Wicks, Bianca’s first stint on Albert Square was largely focused on her tumulstuous relationship with Ricky Butcher and close friendship with Tiffany Mitchell. The flame-haired character’s 1997 wedding to Ricky drew one of the biggest soap audiences in history – with more than 22 million fans tuning in to watch the pair say ‘I do’. Her first shock exit occured after Bianca rekindled her romance with old flame Dan Sullivan – who was dating her mum at the time. The pair had a sordid affair behind Ricky and Carol’s back, with Carol disowning her daughter when she learned abut the relationship. Bianca left for Manchester in 1999 after confessing to Ricky that she no longer loves him.
Bianca returned to our screens in 2008 after moving in with grandma Pat Evans when her children were taken into care. Now a mum-of-four, Bianca’s world came crashing down when she learned that her paedophile boyfriend Tony had been grooming her step-daughter Whitney Dean. She also suffered heartache when her younger brother Billie Jackson died from alcohol poisoning, and was sent to prison when she attacked Billie’s friend Connor.
The character disappeared from our screens again for a brief stint in Manchester, returning with new boyfriend Terry Spraggan and his children TJ and Rosie. After supporting her mum through breast cancer, Bianca decided to move to Milton Keynes with Terry and her children, Tiffany and Morgan – allowing older kids Whitney and Liam to remain with Carol.
Tiffany returned for two episodes in 2016 before returning for good two years later.

After quitting in 2014, the mum-of-four moved to LA to spend more time with her family and husband Richard Merkell.
Jon Sen, EastEnders’ executive producer, said in a statement: “When I joined the show in January, bringing Bianca Jackson back to the Square was high on my wish-list.
“I’m thrilled to announce that Patsy’s agreed to return to reprise her iconic creation in a blistering storyline that will grip fans this Autumn.
“There is no one more excited than me to see her step back into Albert Square again. I simply cannot wait.”

THE dad of the man found dead in Michael Barrymore’s swimming pool has blasted the entertainer for reportedly claiming it ruined his career.
The Strike It Lucky presenter was arrested in 2007, six years after 31-year-old Stuart Lubbock was found floating face-down following a drug-fuelled party at his Essex home.
PA:Press Association Michael Barrymore is due to appear on Piers Morgan’s Real Life Stories[/caption]Stuart Lubbock was 31 when he was found dead in Michael Barrymore’s swimming poolEssex Police
Barrymore, 67, will feature on the new series of Piers Morgan’s Life Stories where he discusses Stuart’s death, with Morgan claiming the star is “raw with anger” towards viewers who do not believe his innocence.
Stuart’s father, Terry, 74, has now said Barrymore only has himself to blame and vowed to get “justice” over his son’s death.
He said: “Barrymore bleats that his life has been ruined but at least he’s still got his life – my son is dead.
“He’s only got himself to blame for what happened to his life and career, it was all his own doing.
“He could have – and still could – sit down with me and the police and tell us what really happened that night 18 years ago. He’s still not told the full version of events.
“It’s always been my belief that Barrymore knows the people who were involved in causing the fatal injuries to Stuart.
“If he feels raw anger and wants to be allowed to rebuild his life then come clean and tell all – get it all off his chest.

“I won’t rest until I get justice for my son Stuart which I will try to do until the day I die.”
Asked if he will watch Barrymore on the Piers Morgan show, Terry replied: “Probably, although I don’t always trust what he says. I’ll be interested to hear what he says about my son’s death.”
Lubbock, a father-of-two, was found with Class A drugs in his system and severe injuries consistent with sexual assault.
Barrymore was eventually detained on suspicion of his rape and murder but released without charge. He has never been prosecuted.
Morgan told The Star: “He had everything and then lost it all.
“He lost his marriage and career, and nearly lost his livelihood, but ultimately was never convicted in relation to any of the events people know him for.
“He feels raw anger that he’s not been allowed to rebuild his career, because people don’t want to accept that he was an innocent man.
“It will be the most powerful show we’ve ever aired.

“Michael showed us what made him the most popular guy in TV.”
Barrymore has also been taking acting lessons in a bid to land TV roles, The Star reports.
Before his career crashed, Barrymore was a hugely successful entertainer, presenting hit shows including Blankety Blank.
He also had his own show named after him, a popular guest show that ran through the 90s.
After ITV terminated his contract his television career subsequently collapsed, and he emigrated to live with his partner Shaun Davis in New Zealand.
Barrymore was last seen on screen five years ago, when he spoke candidly on the Jeremy Kyle about drink, drugs and sexuality.
He later pursued cops for £2.4million compensation for wrongful arrest – but the High Court ruled he should only receive a “nominal” award – that could be as little as £1.MOST READ IN NEWS CHILLING SLIP Maxine Carr caught over Soham murders thanks to key mistake in TV interview CARE SICKOS Smirking care home staff attack autistic patient & use 'psychological torture' 'not knowing is torture' Dad of vanished teen sometimes 'envies parents of murdered kids' 'I LAUGHED AT HIM' Ex-Para Brexit voter, 81, mocks childish yob who threw milkshake at him 'child abuse' I was 'unteachable' & kicked out to improve exam results, like 49,000 others FROZEN IN TIME Time capsule room of missing boy who 'may have been killed by paedo' in 1988
As he returns to the public eye, it’s said he’s been studying at London’s The Actors Crib with a view to a small screen comeback, The Star reports.
A source previously told The Sun: “Michael is a huge name for the show and bosses hope that viewers will flock to see him.
“He’s had a very interesting life and, despite being away from the spotlight, there is a huge amount to talk about. Piers won’t be giving him an easy ride.”

EMILIANO SALA’S sister has written a heartfelt letter to her brother following his death in January.
The Argentine striker tragically died at just 28 when the aircraft he was flying in to Wales crashed into the English Channel.Emiliano Sala had just completed a £15m move to the Welsh club before the aircraft disappearedAFP or licensorsEmiliano Sala’s mother, Mercedes, and sister, Romina, following his deathPA:Press Association
Sala was making his way to Cardiff after he agreed a £15million switch from Ligue 1 side Nantes when tragedy struck.
His sister’s post comes shortly after audio messages revealed he did NOT want to sign for the club.
Alongside a picture of the ocean, she wrote: “I can not understand how you just left without warning.
“You, who were the artisan of my heart and you dedicated yourself to build it with your own love.
“And it is in that silence, that I thank you for having turned into a swan everytime I felt like the ugly duckling of my stories.
“Then, your absence becomes a permanent presence.
“And your absent gaze is transformed into the indestructible foundations of my soul.
“And your abandonment, loses the egoism of my need and transforms it into a journey ahead of our meeting.‘LEFT ME WITH A GIFT’
“I have to assume that your unconditional, can not bring you back. Of course it costs me.
“But I also know, that you took care to leave me a magic wand endowed with the best power I can have: love.
“And here I am. Shaking magical powders in the air as I can. Looking inside and not outside.
“Having the certainty that the ladder of my life can stop for a while, but it will never be walked backwards.
“Because you taught me to love me.
“And you left me with a gift, the tools to be able, in your absence, to transform myself into that Swan, remembering simply how it was the way you did it with me.
“And then it is there, where I return to believe that everything is capable of starting again.
“With love… with love.”
Sala’s family have since accused Cardiff of abandoning him “like a dog” before he was killed in the plane crash.
Cardiff City say they offered Sala a seat on a commercial flight, but he declined it.View this post on Instagram
Me cuesta entender cómo justamente vos, te fuiste sin avisar. Vos, que fuiste el artesano de mí corazón y te dedicaste a construirlo con tu propio amor. Y es en ese silencio, que te agradezco haberme vuelto cisne cada vez que me sentía el patito feo de mis cuentos. Entonces, tu ausencia se hace presencia permanente. Y tu mirada ausente, se transforma en los cimientos indestructibles de mi alma. Y tu abandono, pierde el egoísmo de mi necesidad y lo transforma en un viaje adelantado de nuestro encuentro. Me toca asumir que tu incondicionalidad, no puede traerte de regreso. Claro que me cuesta. Pero también sé, que te encargaste de dejarme una varita mágica dotada del mejor poder que puedo tener : amor. Y acá estoy. Sacudiendo polvitos mágicos en el aire como puedo. Mirando para adentro y no para afuera. Teniendo la certeza de que la escalera de mí vida, puede detenerse un rato, pero nunca va a ser caminada hacia atrás. Porque vos me enseñaste a quererme. Y me dejaste de regalo, las herramientas para poder, en tu ausencia, transformarme a mí misma en ese Cisne, recordando simplemente como era la manera en que vos, lo hacías conmigo. Y entonces es ahí , dónde vuelvo a creer que todo es capaz de volver a empezar. Con amor.. Con amor.. @emilianosala9

A feud broke out between the two clubs over Sala’s transfer, which the Welsh club insists wasn’t completed.

The National Stakes is the first pattern race of the season for two-year-old sprinters and in this year’s contest, Flippa The Strippa saw off the colts in style.
Charlie Hills’ filly stepped up markedly on her last couple of starts to land this prestigious prize, quickening up impressively to see off the best of her age-group so far this season.
She looks bound for Royal Ascot and it’ll take a good one to beat her.

Keep an eye on Terebellum (4.55, Goodwood), who, surprise surprise, represents the all-conquering Frankie Dettori/John Gosden combo.
Unraced before the off, punters clearly smelt something good from the Gosden camp as she was backed into 2-1f – and obliged impressively by over four lengths.
She’s one to keep on side and could be a possible Yorkshire Oaks candidate later in the season.
A HUGE air and sea search is underway off Spain’s south-east coast for a missing British diver.
The unnamed man has been described locally as an ex-member of the Armed Forces aged 70.A massive air and sea search has been launched to find a missing Brit diverSolarpixHe was last seen near a marine reserve called Hormigas Islands
The alarm was raised around midday today by a dive school in Cabo de Palos near Cartagena which said it had lost contact with the missing man.
He was last seen near a marine reserve called Hormigas Islands – Islas Hormigas in Spanish.
A Spanish Coastguard spokesman confirmed two helicopters were taking turns to search for the Brit along with a Red Cross boat and two other Coastguard vessels.
One of the vessels is being used to drop a remote operated vehicle participating in the search.
The dive school he had gone out with, one of eight in the area, has not been named.
No-one from the Civil Guard, which has mobilised one of the two helicopters, could be reached for comment this afternoon.LAND AND SEA SEARCH
But a Spanish Coastguard spokesman said: “We were alerted at eight minutes past midday today.
“The missing man is a British ex-member of the Armed Forces aged 70.
“A Civil Guard and Coastguard helicopter are taking turns to search for him.
“Two Coastguard vessels and a Red Cross boat are also involved.
“A remote operated vehicle has been dropped from one of our vessels and it is currently searching at 40 metres below the sea surface.
“A call has gone out to any Spanish Navy vessels in the area to help out as well if they can.”
A regional government representative for the area added: “All the state’s resources have been activated in the search for this British national, a former member of the military aged 70 who disappeared while he was diving north of the Hormigas Islands in Cabo de Palos.”

ANIMALS will get smaller over the next century as they downsize to survive.
Scientists say larger species will also be wiped out as humans destroy their habitats.Black rhinos face extinction in the next hundred yearsGetty - Contributor
Rodents including the dwarf gerbil and songbirds such as the white-browed sparrow-weaver are likely to be most successful. But tawny eagles and black rhinos face extinction.
On average creatures are expected to be 25 per cent smaller in 100 years as they adapt to the threats of deforestation, hunting, farming, urbanisation and global warming.
By contrast average body size has reduced by just 14 per cent in the 130,000 years since the last ice age. Experts at Southampton university studied the body mass, litter size, habitat, diet and lifespan of 15,484 living animals and birds.
They also used the International Union for Conservation of Nature red list of threatened species to predict likely extinctions. A spokesman said: “In the future, small, fast-lived, highly-fertile, insect-eating animals, which can thrive in a wide variety of habitats, will predominate.”Tawny eagles may also not make it due to their sizeGetty - Contributor

THE Momo “suicide game” has terrified parents and children alike, and even a creepy Baby Shark version has been doing the rounds on the web.
Here’s all you need to know about the disturbing online trend and how to keep your kids safe.The disturbing avatar for Momo was created by a Japanese artist with no connection with the gameCentral European NewsWhat is the Momo Challenge and is it real or a hoax?
Momo is a disturbing WhatsApp “suicide” game feared to have taken the life of a 12-year-old girl.
According to the Computer Crime Investigation Unit in the Mexican state of Tabasco, the game started on Facebook where members were “challenged” to communicate with an unknown number.
Several users have reportedly claimed that Momo responds with violent images and players are threatened if they refuse to follow the game’s “orders” and dares.
However, it is not clear what the number is, although several fake numbers have reportedly been posted online.
The avatar used by Momo is an image of a woman with grotesque features and bulging eyes.
It is from a sculpture created by special effects outfit Link Factory, and was recently featured in a display at an art gallery in Tokyo, Japan.
Speaking to BBC News Portuguese language site, Rodrigo Nejm of Brazil’s NGO Safernet said it’s unclear how widespread the game is but claimed it was most likely a form of “bait” used by criminals to steal data and extort people on the internet.FOR KIDS: How to say no
It can sometimes be hard to stand up to your friends, so Childline offers the following tips on how to say no:
1) Say it with confidence:
Be assertive. It’s your choice and you don’t have to do something which makes you feel unsafe or uncomfortable.
2) Try not to judge them:
By respecting their choices, they should respect yours.
3) Spend time with friends who can say ‘no’:
It takes confidence and courage to say no to your friends. Spend time with other friends who also aren’t taking part.
4) Suggest something else to do:
If you don’t feel comfortable doing what your friends are doing, suggest something else to do.
Any child worried about peer pressure or online worries can contact Childline on 0800 1111.The authorities in Argentina issued this warning about the Momo challengeCentral European NewsHow many deaths has the Momo challenge ‘suicide game’ been linked to?
Cops in Argentina are linking the game to the death of a 12-year-old who took her own life and have issued a warning to parents, the Buenos Aires Times reported.
They are hunting for the “adolescent with whom she exchanged those messages”.
The National Police of Spain have warned against the “absurd challenges”.
On August 28, 2018, the death of a teenager in India was also linked to the Momo “suicide game”.
The 18-year-old, named locally as Manish Sarki, was found in a livestock shed which had the words “Illuminati” and “Devil’s one eye” scrawled on the wall.
In September 2018, a 12-year-old girl and a 16-year-old boy in Colombia killed themselves after reportedly playing the sick game.
Their deaths happened within a 48 hour period in the Barbosa in Santander in the west of the South American country.SAFETY NET: How to keep your child safe online

On February 27, it was revealed that UK schools had sent out letters warning of the challenge.
And a young girl, 5, from Cheltenham cut off her own hair after being “brainwashed” by the sick Momo Challenge.
Reports claim Momo has appeared in Mexico, Argentina, United States, France, Germany and now India.
The National Police of Spain have warned “it is better to ignore absurd challenges that come in the fashion in WhatsApp”.
They added on Twitter: “Do not go into ‘Momo’! If you record the number on your calendar, you will see a strange woman’s face, it’s the latest WhatsApp viral to come in vogue among teenagers.”How can parents protect their children from Momo?
Carolyn Bunting, CEO of online child safety group Internet Matters, told The Sun parents should sit down and talk with their children.
She said: “The existence of online challenges such as Momo are clearly a matter for concern for parents.
“Our latest Back To School research found 7 out of 10 parents of Year 7 pupils are worried their children will be pushed into dangerous online crazes and challenges.
“While it is important not to panic and jump to conclusions without knowing all of the facts, it is also healthy for parents to sit down with their children and talk about all aspects of their online world.
“Myth or not – this reinforces the need for parents to be have regular, honest and open conversations about what their children are doing online and who they are talking to.”What is the Michael Jackson inspired Momo video?
A twisted Michael Jackson “Momo-style” video has appeared online threatening to enter children’s bedrooms screaming “hee hee”.
Police in Mexico have been forced to issue a warning after the meme claimed a distorted Jackson will come into their home at 3am.
The creepy clip shows the bizarre statue slowly swinging from side-to-side as the song Smooth Criminal plays in the background.
As the camera pans in on the figure’s waxy face and blood-red eyes, bone-chilling screams ring out.
The meme reportedly originated in 2009 – the year Michael Jackson died – and has been branded ‘El Ayuwoki’ in the Mexican state of Baja California Sur.
The name Ayuwoki comes from the song Smooth Criminal and is how the lyric ‘are you okay’ would be spelt phonetically in Spanish.
A police statement says: “Although a lot of people believe this is a kind of demon or ghost from the Internet, there is nothing supernatural in this matter.
“The kids and teenagers are looking to share it and believe in it because it is trendy, which could generate sleep issues, panic or anxiety.”
According to reports, the Jackson meme has spread after the release of the Leaving Neverland documentary about alleged child abuse carried out by the singer.MOST READ IN NEWS CHILLING SLIP Maxine Carr caught over Soham murders thanks to key mistake in TV interview CARE SICKOS Smirking care home staff attack autistic patient & use 'psychological torture' 'not knowing is torture' Dad of vanished teen sometimes 'envies parents of murdered kids' 'I LAUGHED AT HIM' Ex-Para Brexit voter, 81, mocks childish yob who threw milkshake at him STAY OF BREXECUTION Doomed May could cling on for two more weeks and quit after Trump visit PIPE DREAM Horny teen gets his penis stuck while having sex with a metal sewage pipe Why is it appearing in Baby Shark videos?
Spanish police believe claim Momo has resurfaced in Baby Shark videos, which are singalong clips that receive millions of views.
According to local media, there is one video which features the character saying: “Hi, I am Momo. I want to play with you.
“Look for a knife in your kitchen and cut your little hands.
“If you do not do it, Momo will come after you.”Is the Momo Challenge a hoax?
THE Momo Challenge is believed to have originated in South America.
The creepy face of a Japanese sculpture was hijacked and spread on WhatsApp – reportedly with instructions enticing children to perform a series of dangerous tasks including self-harm and suicide.
In recent days police and schools have issued warnings about the challenge arriving in the UK and a number of parents have said their children have been exposed to it.
Commons Leader Andrea Leadsom even told MPs the Government is “extremely concerned” about it.
But confusingly UK charities and internet experts have suggested the challenge is a hoax.
The Samaritans and the NSPCC said there is no confirmed evidence anyone has come to physical harm.
And YouTube claimed: “We have found no evidence of videos showing or promoting the Momo challenge on YouTube.”
While it appears the challenge itself may not have reached Britain, sick copycats have been traumatising children by splicing a ghoulish video of a bug-eyed girl into Peppa Pig cartoons and Fortnite gameplay footage.
To contact NSPCC, you can call the helpline on 0808 800 5000 or children under 18 can call 0800 1111

Chris was sensationally sacked from the show in 2013 after video clips of him rapping about rape and violence while disguised in a Halloween mask emerged online.
Since then he has tried to rebuild his care, and recently starred in ITV show Girlfriends.
However, the video still haunts him, and the shame has continued to blight him.
But the actor looked like he didn’t have a career in the world, as he enjoyed all the luxury the impressive yacht had to offer.
Ryan, meanwhile, has been enjoying the high life since the trauma of his Celebrity Big Brother appearance in 2018, which found him embroiled in the infamous “punch-gate” row with Roxanne Pallett.
Since then he has been enjoying a life of non-stop holidays – which earlier this year saw him go on TWO holidays in just one week.More on TV & showbiz HEIST OF THE CENTURY ITV's Hatton Garden returns for the final episode TONIGHT ZOE'S TEARS Zoe Ball took day off Radio 2 show on 2-year anniversary of boyfriend's funeral ANY DREAM WILL DUO Sheridan Smith and Jason Donovan to sing Joseph hits on BGT live show we found home Inside Rihanna’s £16k a WEEK London house she’s been living in for a year NUCLEAR DISASTER Sky's Chernobyl rated best show EVER over Game of Thrones & Breaking Bad CANNES GLAM Kendall Jenner and Dua Lipa flash their legs on the amFAR gala red carpet baby joy Stacey Solomon gives birth early as she welcomes first child with Joe Swash prepare to be thrilled What is The Perfection about and what are the reviews like?

ENGLAND fans may get the opportunity to watch the Nations League final for free, depending the outcome of talks between the Football Association and Sky Sports.
The broadcaster paid £100million for exclusive rights to the recently-created tournament but are being urged to follow BT Sports’ act of making the showpiece match free for all.Southgate’s side beat Croatia and Spain en route to the final fourGetty Images - Getty
A decision will not be made, however, until after England’s semi-final with the Netherlands on June 6.
The Times report on the FA suggesting to Sky that a final involving the Three Lions should be broadcast to as many people as possible.
But they are said to be reluctant to pressure the TV network into doing so.
Sky’s four-year deal to take the rights was agreed with UEFA and another avenue is widening the game out to all Sky customers, rather than just Sky Sports subscribers.
Should England fail to beat the Dutch in Guimaraes, the live footage of the June 9 final is expected to air on Sky Sports as planned.
The FA’s commitment to free-to-air football appears to be on the rise, given Thursday’s announcement that the FA Cup will be split between BBC and ITV from 2021.Most read football news SOL SEARCHING Get the latest updates from Old Trafford as Ole plots summer overhaul CILL-ED THE DEAL Man Utd target Cillessen agrees Benfica move as Barca hold out for £22m MAGIC OF THE CUP ITV snatch FA Cup rights from BT Sport making tournament free-to-air again ROCK N RULE Seven new radical rule changes coming into the Premier League next season PHENIX BAN Former Southport star Phenix banned for four years after failed drugs test HELPING HEND Man Utd can replace De Gea with Henderson as stats show he had better season 'no words' Lingard slammed for using Manchester bombing tribute to promote JLingz brand NOT A LONGSHOT Man Utd shock transfer target Sean Longstaff is exactly what Ole needs
In announcing the agreement, the organisation praised ITV’s World Cup coverage, peaking at 26.5 million viewers of the Three Lions’ semi-final defeat to Croatia.
Similarly, BT Sport have pledged to show this year’s Champions League final between Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur for free.
The broadcaster have previously aired the Europa League final on YouTube and this year’s occasion between Arsenal and Chelsea will also be no different.
MURDERED Tupac Shakur was pictured in public just one day AFTER he was targeted by a mystery gunman, claim conspiracy theorists.
According to cops, the superstar rapper was murdered in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas in September 1996, when he was shot in his BMW.
YouTube: Wired.tv This image claims to be of Tupac taken the day after he was shot in Las Vegas[/caption]
YouTube The rapper was seen wearing a very similar shirt the day of his shooting[/caption]However, a photo has now been published which appears to show Tupac hours after he was gunned down – when the authorities insist he was in hospital fighting for his life.
A man resembling Shakur is seen pictured in an orange shirt similar to the one the star wore on the morning of the shooting.
A conspiracist known as Danny said his source, who he claims is a friend of Tupac’s family, confirmed the image was taken after the shooting.
Danny said: “He said ‘this is for sure September 7th, right? This is what everybody thinks but this was wrong’.”
Just hours before the shooting Tupac and his entourage were involved in a casino fight with gang member Orlando Anderson.
Tupac, ween wearing an orange shirt during the bust up, reportedly changed into a green basketball vest shortly after the fight, reports the Daily Star.
Danny added: “After he got into a fight with Orlando Anderson he went to his room and changed into the green tank top, the one we saw him wearing when he was sitting in the BMW with Suge supposedly before he got shot and faked his death.
“This is when all the things begin to get fishy, this picture right here is actually the day following September 7.
“This picture was taken without Pac’s knowledge and without anybody else knowing.”
Danny claims his source said: “‘This is from September 8, the morning after planning to get the hell out of there’.”
There is absolutely no evidence to back up the claim.A screenshot from the 2006 video ‘Amsterdam to L.A’ which conspiracy theorists believe stars Tupac
Just this week it was claimed the American rapper was still alive and starred in a music video ten years AFTER he was shot dead.
But since his death wild conspiracy theories have circulated, claiming the rapper is still alive and only went into hiding.
A video uploaded to YouTube yesterday by conspiracy theorists WiredUp TV features scenes from the video.
During the clip, the narrator of the video stops when the camera is on a man that looks suspiciously like Tupac, sitting in a car and smoking a cigarette.
The video freezes on the frame and zooms in, circling the “modern day Tupac” in a bright green circle.
The narrator says: “Look at the guy next to the gentleman with the face furthest to us, the guy smoking a cigarette, that’s Tupac Shakur.
“We have just got confirmation.”
The man in the video looks similar to Tupac – he is bald and has the same shaped moustache that the singer had – but the video does not prove the real identity of the person.
Since the video was uploaded on March 19, it has amassed over 5,000 views and almost 90 comments.
The channel’s five other videos – all uploaded within the last month – all relate to Tupac’s death.
Many non-believers in the video’s comments section debunk the theories, leaving comments like “still no proof”.MOST READ WORLD NEWS PIPE DREAM Horny teen gets his penis stuck while having sex with a metal sewage pipe ZAPPED TO DEATH Toddler killed after putting phone charger in mouth while plugged into wall DEATH RIDDLE Disturbing Instagram of girl, 13, dumped dying outside hospital by ‘older man’ good Samaritan battered Maniac knocks OAP out after seeing her give money to beggar DIVER HUNT Huge search launched for Brit ex soldier who vanished diving off Spain coast STRIKING OUT If you're trying to sneak a peek, play it cooler than these dopey blokes GOODBYE KISS Hospital staff form guard of honour for dying girl, 2, about to donate organs BATTERED ON THE BEACH Mass fight erupts at 'Go Topless' beach party with 125 arrested 'I WANTED TO GET RID OF HER' Mum, 21, abandoned daughter, 2, to ‘spend time with boyfriend'
Another said: “It is crazy how every time a picture of Tupac is shown it is always a picture far away, in a dark silhouette.”
Another recent conspiracy theory claimed that Tupac is alive and living secretly in an L.A prison, after “new evidence” of a man matching Tupac’s description surfaced on an American inmate information website.
Earlier this year rapper Suge Knight’s son bizarrely started a rumour that Tupac was alive and planning to release new music with rapper Cardi B.

COPS escorted a family through Manchester Airport after their holiday was cut short when fellow travellers claimed their children had been abused.
The two-week trip to Turkey ended when the group were forced to fly home early over the allegations, and the parents and three kids were returned to the UK on Sunday by Thomas Cook.

Holidaymakers at the Atlantique Holiday Club resort in Kusadasi claimed one of the children was hit around the head and another was dunked in the pool, reports the Liverpool Echo.
Several guests and hotel staff are said to have raised concerns about the children before the family were moved to a different hotel, and the dad made to stay in a separate room.
Thomas Cook staff are thought to have stayed on the same floor as a safeguarding measure.
According to the Echo, the parents have denied any allegations of child abuse or neglect.
A Merseyside Police spokeswoman said no arrests have been made as the allegations took place in Spain, but it is understood the force is involved in a safeguarding role.
A passenger on the family’s return flight claimed the dad pushed his son before they boarded and the mum was heard telling someone on the phone “it’s all Thomas Cook’s fault”.
The Mirror reports a Brit onboard the same flight said the family were given priority boarding, before armed police walked onto the plane when it landed at Manchester Airport.
He said: “Everyone was standing up wanting to get off the flight and the air steward said ‘can everyone return to their seats, please, because somebody has to board the plane’.

“The officer was still holding the bag. The father went to get the bags and the mother was with the children waiting for them.
“She was shouting and swearing at somebody on the phone telling them it was all Thomas Cook’s fault and ‘I can’t believe this is happening’ – she was screaming into her phone.”
He added passengers had no idea why police boarded the plane, and only discovered what happened after reading media reports.
A Thomas Cook spokeswoman said: “We have a duty of care to all of our customers, and have clear policies in place, including a child protection policy, which we will not hesitate to act upon to ensure the wellbeing of our customers and colleagues.”

SUCCESSFUL gambles are rare – but when they happen they are oh so satisfying.
Over the years there have been some crackers and we’ve narrowed down the top 5 best punts that bled the bookies dry.Barney Curley is the king of gamblesGetty Images - Getty5. The Roscommon heist
Charles Byrnes is the godfather of punting trainers. The man is as cunning one of Baldrick’s plans and rarely does a year go by without the man from Ballingarry sniffing out a punting opportunity.
He’s had many successful coups but perhaps his greatest feat came at Roscommon in 2016, where he sent out three different horses to win at overnight odds of 16-1, 12-1 and 14-1.
All ridden by Davy Russell, who surely would have been trembling like a tadpole throughout the last leg, the three returned at 6-1, 7-4 and 5-4 – and you can bet that most of the money wagered was from the Byrnes brigade.Davy Russell was cool as ice in guiding home three winners on that fateful eve at RoscommonREUTERS4. D Four Dave and the helping 200
This one may not be quite as well known but it’s arguably the most impressively orchestrated gamble of all time.
On an Irish summer eve in 2010, a horse called D Four Dave destroyed his rivals in Kilbeggan handicap hurdle, having been backed in from 5-1 from 14s.
After the contest it emerged one of the horse’s owners, Douglas Taylor, had paid 200 people €30 each
to place single bets on the winner at different shops.
Each person hired for the coup was given an alarm to place the bet at an exact time and with specific instructions so as not to arouse suspicion – and each did their job to a nicety.
It truly was an epic performance of logistics and it’s fair to say Taylor earned every penny.latest in horse racing MULLEN IT OVER Top tipster Steve Mullen's top racing preview for Friday, May 24 CAL CALLS IT Your best bets across the cards on Friday as Goodwood takes centre stage THURSDAY REPORT The Sun Racing team reviews the action from Goodwood and Sandown JACK THE TIPPER Our top shrewdie shares an each-way bet to die for on Thursday CAL CALLS IT Your best bets across the cards on Thursday as Sandown takes the limelight GET YA NEWS Your one-stop shop for all of Thursday's racing action BEE LUCKY All you need for Thursday's evening card at Sandown with Sun Racing's preview STOUTE SPECIAL Top tipster Templegate's best bets for the racing today MULLEN IT OVER Top tipster Steve Mullen's top racing preview for Thursday, May 23 WEDNESDAY REPORT The Sun Racing team reviews the action from Yarmouth & Ayr GAME OF FURLONGS Five horses whose names were inspired by the hit TV show DERBY DELIGHTS Remembering an Epsom hero... Workforce destroys his rivals in 2010 3. The Barney Curley shadow
Back in 2014 four trainers, all with links to Barney Curley, sent out four horses to win at three different tracks – with accumulated odds exceeding 9,000-1.
Morning prices of 10-1 (Eye Of The Tiger), 6-1 (Seven Summits), 20-1 (Indus Valley) and 7-1 (Low Key) were quickly snapped up and an estimated £2 million was placed by early punters.
What made the coup particularly extraordinary is that the horses had been off the track for periods of between 225 and 700 days – but had all been trained to the minute.
Needless to say, each horse obliged – though not without considerable concern as Low Key, who went to post in the final leg, had to be driven hard by Liam Keniry to eventually land the spoils.Craggs became the first betting shop millionaireReuters2. The first betting shop millionaire
In 2008, Fred Craggs, from the Yorkshire crags, became the first man to place a million-pound bet in a betting shop.
The Thirsk-based punter put his money where his mouth was, striking a 50p 8-horse accumulator to see him through the day.
Unfortunately, small print meant the Yorkshireman’s winnings were capped at just £1m – though he didn’t seem to mind.
The winning run began with Isn’t That Lucky and ended with A Dream Come True, showing that sometimes horse’s names really can make a difference.
According to Hills spokesman Graeme Sharpe, it was ‘the most amazing bet ever placed since betting shops were made legal in 1961’.Curley and Yellow Sam provided one of the great coups in historyNews Group Newspapers Ltd1. Bellewing home Yellow Sam
Everyone knows this one and it remains the most outrageous spanking of the bookies ever seen in Britain or Ireland.
Barney Curley, an outspoken chap with a penchant for uncouth outbursts, took to the track at Bellewstown in 1975 with the intention of changing his life – and he did just that.
Entering a pretty average horse called Yellow Sam in a pretty average handicap hurdle, Curley used the only means of contacting the bookmaking world at Bellewstown – a telephone box – to instruct his minions all over the country to place bets of varying sizes at the given odds of 20-1.
Having made sure in his previous outings that Yellow Sam would be wholly unsuited by ground conditions, Curley now made sure everything was absolutely perfect for him – and the horse duly bolted up.
With bookies not having the wherewithal to shorten the horse’s odds, Curley pocketed what equates to £1.4m – far more money than should have been the case.
It remains one of the most audacious gambles in history and gave rise to one of racing’s most incorrigible personalities.
WALTER BENITEZ was statistically Europe’s best goalkeeper last season – and he’s open to a Premier League switch.
The Nice stopper saved over 80 per cent of the shots he faced – beating the likes of Jan Oblak and Alisson – to attract interest from Wolves, Crystal Palace and Newcastle.Walter Benitez is being monitored by Prem club after a brilliant season in Ligue 1Getty - Contributor
Benitez, 26, began the season as Patrick Vieira’s second choice but took the No1 jersey with a man-of-the-match display in a 1-0 win over Lyon in August and has not looked back since – becoming known as The Wall.
After missing out on Argentina’s Copa America squad this summer, Benitez is eager to convince Lionel Scaloni he has what it takes to represent his country and admits a move to England may boost his chances.
He told SunSport: “I worked very hard and I would love to be at the Copa America but it is the coach’s decision.
“I like the Premier League. It’s a very important league and I would like to play there one day.
“I don’t think that moving to England is the only way for me to be in the Argentinian team because the main thing is my performances.
“But to play in the Premier League would probably be good for my chances in the national team. I have recently signed with Wasserman football agency, so I feel like my career is heading in the right direction”
Vieira’s Nice have struggled for goals this season but pulled off big results against Paris Saint-Germain and did the double over Lyon – largely thanks to an impressive defensive record.Most read in football SOL SEARCHING Get the latest updates from Old Trafford as Ole plots summer overhaul CILL-ED THE DEAL Man Utd target Cillessen agrees Benfica move as Barca hold out for £22m MAGIC OF THE CUP ITV snatch FA Cup rights from BT Sport making tournament free-to-air again ROCK N RULE Seven new radical rule changes coming into the Premier League next season PHENIX BAN Former Southport star Phenix banned for four years after failed drugs test HELPING HEND Man Utd can replace De Gea with Henderson as stats show he had better season 'no words' Lingard slammed for using Manchester bombing tribute to promote JLingz brand NOT A LONGSHOT Man Utd shock transfer target Sean Longstaff is exactly what Ole needs OUTFOXED Leicester shock favourites to sign Robben aged 35 after he leaves Bayern Munich AND SHAKE Sheringham and Cole end 20-year feud as Man Utd icons shake hands in club
And Benitez has loved playing under the Gunners icon, who decided to axe Mario Balotelli in a bold move.
He added: “I worked hard for the coach, so it was hard for me to start as second keeper.
“But I continued to work and I think I had a good season. He’s a good man and it’s a very good experience to have a coach like him because he has experience and he trusts me.”
THE RAREST piece of gold in the world has been analysed by scientists and they will no longer reveal its price.
Known as the Ram’s Horn, scientists have been reluctant to conduct tests on the precious wire gold artefact until now.This is the rarest piece of gold in the worldHarvard University
The Ram’s Horn was found in 1887 in a goldmine in Colorado.
It is roughly 4.7 inches tall, weighs roughly half a pound and is so delicate that it has naturally split into three tendrils.
At the time of its discovery, the gold horn was valued at around £125 by weight—or about £3,550 in today’s currency.
However, experts will no longer speculate on its current value due to security concerns.The artefact was found at a goldmine in Colorado
John Rakovan, a mineralogist at Miami University, could only tell National Geographic that the object was worth “a very pretty penny.”
Scientists from the Los Alamos National Laboratory recently used a half-mile-long particle accelerator to work out whether the golden wires make up one massive gold crystal or are a few gold crystals growing together.
Wire gold is so rare and delicate that not much is known about it and that’s why this new research is so groundbreaking.
Analysis revealed that the golden horn was likely made of just a few crystals, rather than a lot of them making it an even rarer phenomenon.
The Ram’s Horn current lives in Harvard’s Mineralogical and Geological Museum.
A paper about the analysis techniques used in this study is going to be released soon and may reveal a bit more about this mysterious object.The rarest materials on Earth

THERESA May is desperately trying to cling on to power after Andrea Leadsom resigned as the Commons leader but it seems time is running out for the Prime Minister.
She’s offered to step aside if MPs back her Brexit deal. So who will be the next PM? Here are the latest odds.Speculation is mounting about the future of the Prime MinisterWho will be the next Prime Minister?
The under fire Prime Minister is due to meet the head of the powerful 1922 Committee Sir Graham Brady on May 24 and speculation is rising that she could then announce her resignation.
May abandoned plans to hold a fourth vote on her Brexit deal in two weeks’ time – prompting claims she is still trying to dig in and survive.
Even if she overcomes that hurdle she could be hauled in front of a snap meeting with all 800 constituency chairmen and senior activists in June.
The could decide to demand her resignation – making her the first Tory leader in 185 years to face an emergency grassroots vote.
May survived a vote of no confidence in December 2018, but repeated thwarted attempts to pass her Brexit deal have left her without authority.
She has now said she will step down if MPs back her deal.
The Prime Minister told the 1922 Committee of Conservative MPs: “I know there is a desire for a new approach, and new leadership, in the second phase of the Brexit negotiations – and I won’t stand in the way of that.
“I know some people are worried that if you vote for the withdrawal agreement, I will take that as a mandate to rush on into phase two without the debate we need to have. I won’t – I hear what you are saying. But we need to get the deal through and deliver Brexit.
“I am prepared to leave this job earlier than I intended in order to do what is right for our country and our party.”
The day after May announced her willingness to step aside, several prospective candidates set out their stalls for why they should be the next Prime Minister.Tory leadership contenders include (from top left to bottom right) Boris Johnson, Jeremy Hunt, Michael Gove, Liz Truss, Amber Rudd, Justine Greening, Sajid Javid, Dominic Raab, Johnny Mercer, Esther McVey, Priti Patel and James Cleverly
The contenders vying for the job on March 31 include Cabinet ministers such as Amber Rudd, rebel Brexiteers like Dominic Raab and long-shot backbenchers like James Cleverly.
They span the whole of the Brexit spectrum, from Eurosceptic hardliner Esther McVey to Justine Greening, who backs a second referendum.
May has been told to quit as party chiefs were reportedly meeting on April 23 to decide her fate.
Leading backbencher Nigel Evans told BBC she needs to resign.
He said: “To be honest I would be delighted if she announced today she was announcing her resignation and we could then have an orderly election to choose a new leader of the Conservative party.
“I believe the only way we’re going to break this impasse properly is if we have fresh leadership of the Conservative party.
“If there was an announcement today by the Prime Minister then of course we could start the process straight away.”What are the odds on the next Prime Minister?
Here are what the bookies are saying on May 22, 2019.
Paddy Power is offering odds of 3/1 that Theresa May will be stop being Prime Minister by the end of May 2019.Michael Gove – 10/1
The Environment Secretary has achieved a remarkable turnaround since knifing Boris Johnson during the 2016 leadership contest.
His support among party members dropped through the floor and it seemed his chances were gone for ever.
But Mr Gove, who led the Leave campaign in the EU referendum, has rebranded himself as an ecowarrior as Environment Secretary.
He has also thrown his full support behind Theresa May’s Brexit plan, winning him friends among MPs if not the party faithful.Michael Gove led the Leave campaign in the EU referendumSplash News
He claimed May blundered by not having key Labour figures on her Brexit talks team.
The Environment Secretary said the PM “made a mistake by not asking Gisela Stuart to join at the beginning”.
The team should also have had “people like Frank Field”, he said.
He also said No Deal must be kept on the table.Boris Johnson – 6/4
Former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson is still a hugely popular figure among Tory grassroots and the general public.
He walked out just hours after she lost Brexit Secretary David Davis over her Chequers plan to keep close ties to Brussels.
But many MPs appear to have turned against him, meaning he might struggle to get on the ballot.
His aborted leadership bid in 2016 was scuppered by his friend Michael Gove, severely damaging his electoral “brand”.
He has called on May to stop “dithering” and tell the EU that Britain will not accept the controversial backstop arrangement designed to avoid a hard border in Ireland.
He rejected warnings about the impact of a No Deal Brexit, insisting: “Whatever the doomsters may say … there will be no shortage of Mars bars, we will still have potable drinking water in Britain. The planes will fly, the ferries will ply.”
The bookies have been giving Jeremy Corbyn strong odds as the nation’s most likely next Prime Minister.
The Labour leader has had to fight constant opposition from his own MPs including a leadership contest after just a year.
But the party swung behind him after a much stronger than expected 2017 General Election when Labour picked up 30 seats and Mrs May lost her majority.
Although the fabled “youthquake” of support from younger voters did not happen, Labour is enjoying relatively strong support in opinion polls.
Labour’s policy is to keep all options on the table if the party can’t seek a general election including a second vote.
And the Labour leader has also made calls for a General Election — though not as loudly as some of his supporters may have hoped.
According to polling, Labour members are significantly more opposed to Brexit than Corbyn, with 72 per cent thinking their leader should support a second vote.Jeremy Corbyn has expressed interest in another electionRex FeaturesJeremy Hunt – 11/1
He left the Department of Health after securing a £20bn funding increase for the NHS, but was hated by junior doctors after changing their contacts so they wouldn’t receive extra pay for the many shifts they work previously classified as unsociable hours.
Mr Hunt is known to have leadership aspirations and now says he backs Brexit despite campaigning for Remain during the referendum.Dominic Raab – 6/1
The former Brexit Secretary quit the cabinet in protest over Theresa May’s soft divorce deal with the EU.
Raab has insisted No Deal wouldn’t be chaotic for Britain and said the short-term risks were “manageable”.
He has blasted those who want to extend Article 50 or a second referendum.
He said: “If there’s an attempt to reverse the referendum, stop Brexit altogether I think that would cut across not only the democratic mandate, the biggest in history we had.”Former Brexit secretary Dominic Raab speaking in the House of CommonsAFP or licensorsSajid Javid – 16/1
The Home Secretary ended up backing Remain during the EU referendum but is popular among the Tory parliamentary party.
A known Eurosceptic, some of his statements in recent months and his backing for a harder Brexit have been taken as signs he is pitching for the leadership.
The MP for Bromsgrove in Worcestershire is a former managing director from Deutsche Bank.Andrea Leadsom – 16/1
Though an unlikely candidate at the time, the Brexit campaigner reached the final two of the 2016 leadership contest.
She withdrew over ill-judged remarks about Theresa May not being a mother.
She is now Leader of the House, and survived in post despite reports Mrs May was planning to cut “dead wood” in her January reshuffle.
Jacob Rees-Mogg, the Latin-fluent millionaire financier and MP for North East Somerset, has emerged as the leading Brexiteer on the backbenches.
He has won a huge public profile despite not being a minister and is adored by hard-line Tory activists.
Rees-Mogg has also garnered a surprise following among many young Tories – including Jungle Queen Georgia Toffolo, who called him “a sex god”.
Devout Catholic Rees-Mogg has made no secret of his socially conservative views, such as being anti-abortion and against gay marriage.
His plummy tones, double-breasted suits and traditional manner have earned him the nickname “The Honourable Member for the Nineteenth Century”.
On March 28, Rees-Mogg told TalkRadio: “I’m not standing for the Conservative leadership.
“I fear if I threw my hat in the ring it would be thrown back at me like Oddjob used to do in the James Bond films.”Jacob Rees-Mogg is the leader of the backbench Tory Euroceptics and a rising force in the Conservative PartyAmber Rudd – 66/1
Ms Rudd has managed to stay in favour with Mrs May, taking the buck for the Windrush Scandal and stepping down as Home Secretary — before returning to the cabinet within months and becoming Work and Pensions chief.
The 55-year-old Hastings MP has voiced support for the PM and for her botched Brexit deal, but insiders think she’s savvy enough to manoeuvre a bid to the top when she’s ready.
One concern though would be her slim majority in her constituency of Hastings and Rye, which was slimmed down after the 2017 vote to just 346 votes.
In contrast, Mrs May enjoys a 26,457 majority in her constituency of Maidenhead, that has stood behind her over more than two decades.
She warned the PM there could be dozens of resignations if Tory MPs are banned from voting for a plan to stop a No Deal Brexit.David Davis – 100/1
He has since launched a series of attacks on Mrs May’s strategy, and led a Tory rebellion to ditch the Chequers plan.
He called on Cabinet ministers to rise up and kill off the plans.
Furious Tories have demanded Mr Davis be installed as interim leader to save true Brexit.David Davis is interested in being the next Prime MinisterRex FeaturesChuka Umunna – 100/1
Mr Umunna ditched the Labour Party to join forces with three former Tories and eight other ex-Labour MPs to form a new political group in February 2019 after months of plotting.
The Independent Group (TIG) will form a fully-fledged parliamentary party.
Umunna insisted they were not yet a party or a movement, with a fully worked out programme for government, but simply a group of independent MPs.
While he played down reports that he was favourite to be the first leader, he acknowledged that he wanted to play the “biggest role” in the group.latest on theresa may NEXT IN LINE Who will be the next PM if Theresa May resigns and what are the odds?

But Ruth has said repeatedly she wants to focus on Scotland and as she is not an MP she currently is not eligible to stand as leader of the UK party.
In September 2018 she declared she never wants to be Prime Minister.

The gambler from Derbyshire lumped on £5 on a 10-fold accumulator – where he tipped Cardiff to beat Manchester United for the first time since 1954.
His winning slip earned him an incredible £117,485.16.
He also guessed that Manchester City would win away at Brighton to secure the Premier League title, while Liverpool would emerge victorious against Wolves.
Other correct selections include Arsenal beating Burnley at Turf Moor, West Ham to win away at Watford, Newcastle to beat Fulham at Craven Cottage and Crystal Palace to edge out Bournemouth.
While he also predicted three draws, as Spurs were held to a point against Everton at home, Chelsea drew away at Leicester and Southampton failed to get the better of Huddersfield.MOST READ IN FOOTBALL SOL SEARCHING Get the latest updates from Old Trafford as Ole plots summer overhaul CILL-ED THE DEAL Man Utd target Cillessen agrees Benfica move as Barca hold out for £22m MAGIC OF THE CUP ITV snatch FA Cup rights from BT Sport making tournament free-to-air again ROCK N RULE Seven new radical rule changes coming into the Premier League next season PHENIX BAN Former Southport star Phenix banned for four years after failed drugs test HELPING HEND Man Utd can replace De Gea with Henderson as stats show he had better season

According to TMZ, the wannabe star was charged by LA County District Attorney’s Office with domestic violence and could face up to four years behind bars.
He posted a $50,000 bond and was released on the same day, the reports says.
Panettiere – known for her roles in hit shows such as Heroes and Nashville – had red marks on her neck and body, it has been reported.
She has been dating Hickerson for one year following her split from former heavyweight boxing champion Wladimir Klitschko after their nine year relationship.
Friends and family of the actress, who also shares a four-year-old daughter with the Ukrainian athlete, say they are “more worried than ever” for her safety, reports People.
A source said: “Hayden knows Brian has a bad temper and can be controlling, but there is an extreme attraction to it.
“And despite warnings from family and friends, the relationship seems solid.”
The source continued: “Brian’s reputation as a party boy is no secret in Hollywood.
“Those close to Hayden are more worried than ever about this and his temper.”MOST READ IN NEWS CHILLING SLIP Maxine Carr caught over Soham murders thanks to key mistake in TV interview CARE SICKOS Smirking care home staff attack autistic patient & use 'psychological torture' 'not knowing is torture' Dad of vanished teen sometimes 'envies parents of murdered kids' 'I LAUGHED AT HIM' Ex-Para Brexit voter, 81, mocks childish yob who threw milkshake at him STAY OF BREXECUTION Doomed May could cling on for two more weeks and quit after Trump visit PIPE DREAM Horny teen gets his penis stuck while having sex with a metal sewage pipe

This is not the first time Hickerson has been involved in a domestic dispute.
Last year, police were called to a home in South Carolina after the jobbing actor had a drunken row with his own father.

FANS were thrilled to learn that Bianca is coming back to Walford.
But why did she leave in the first place? And what’s in store for the iconic character? Here’s what we know so far…Bianca is back after a five year breakBBCWhen is Bianca returning to EastEnders?
On 23rd May The Sun exclusively revealed that Patsy Palmer would be reprising her iconic Bianca character in EastEnders after a five-year break.
And her return is a key signing for new show boss Kate Oates.
EastEnders viewers will see Bianca, who made her debut 25 years ago, reunited with troubled daughter Tiffany, played by Maisie Smith.
A soap insider said: “Bosses are delighted to be getting Patsy back. She’s a real Enders icon and fans love seeing old faces return.
“She has yet to get her scripts but she will no doubt be at the centre of drama when she returns in the autumn.
“She starts filming in the next few weeks and can’t wait to get going again.”
Patsy joined EastEnders in 1993, left in 1999, and returned for a second stint in 2008 before quitting again in 2014.Why did she leave? Last time Bianca was back she remarried ex-hubbie Ricky only to divorce him again for being unfaithfulRex Features
Bianca left the show for the last time in 2014 so that actress Patsy Palmer could move to the sunnier climes of LA to spend more time with her family and husband Richard Merkell.
The way that the fiery redhead left the soap last – in 2014 – was moving to Milton Keynes with Robbie Jackson and son Sami for a change of scenery.
This followed a tumultuous few years in the Square where she broke up Ricky’s engagement to Sam Mitchell and then married him before divorcing him after he cheated on her with Mandy Salter.
Plus her younger brother Billie’s death from alcohol poisoning combined with her six-month stint in jail for assaulting Connor all played their part in making Bianca want to take a well-deserved break from Walford.Bianca definitely doesn’t hold back from letting her feelings knownHandout More on EastEnders TIFF LOVE EastEnders fans think Bianca will go on a rampage after Tiffany's rape horror bianca's back When is Bianca returning to EastEnders and what is her comeback storyline?

EastEnders legend Patsy Palmer to return to soap with huge storyline What is her comeback storyline? How could anyone forget her tumultuous relationship with ‘Rickaayyy’Handout
Fans are chomping at the bit, desperate to know why Bianca’s back in the square.
But ‘Enders bosses are remaining tight-lipped and not giving the storyline away other than that the redhead will be reunited with her troubled daughter Tiffany, played by Maisie Smith.
Though that hasn’t stopped viewers from speculating about what she’s back for.
Some fans are predicting the return could have something to do with Tiffany’s blossoming romance with Keegan Baker (Zack Morris) – putting his equally gobby mum Karen (Lorraine Stanley) in the firing line.
Jon Sen, EastEnders’ exec producer spilled on much other than: “I’m thrilled Patsy’s agreed to return to reprise her iconic creation in a blistering storyline that will grip fans this autumn.
“When I joined the show in January, bringing Bianca Jackson back to the Square was high on my wish-list. I’m thrilled to announce that Patsy’s agreed to return to reprise her iconic creation in a blistering storyline that will grip fans this autumn. There is no one more excited than me to see her step back into Albert Square again. I simply cannot wait.”
BEAUTY lovers have been going crazy for a foot peel that claims to help you shed a whole layer of skin in time for summer.
The footcare trend sees women wearing slip-on socks filled with a formula, to help get rid of any dead skin – but the photos are certainly not for the faint-hearted.
Derma V10 Shoppers have been raving about Poundland’s £1 foot peel, which is said to help them shed a layer of skin[/caption]Derma V10 Exfoliating Foot Peel, £1 from Cherryz – buy now
Shoppers have been particularly raving about a £1 peel from Poundland and several online sites that is said to be particularly effective.
The Derma V10’s Exfoliating Foot Peel claims to remove an entire layer of skin after you wear it for 90 minutes.
All you have to do is put your feet in the clear “boots”, which are filled with a formula containing salicylic acid, tea tree and peppermint.
Then you simply relax for an hour and a half while it works its magic – perfect for doing while you watch a movie.

@alittlekiran / Instagram One week later, you should start to an extreme peel[/caption]
@alittlekiran / Instagram After you have shed the skin, you should be left with silky smooth tootsies[/caption]
Within a week, the dead skin is expected to start peeling away, and although it may look rather horrifying at first, you should be left with fresh-looking feet.
While foot peel socks may not be entirely new, people have been singing the praises of the £1 Dermo V10 product on a Poundland Appreciation Society Facebook group.
One person wrote: “These are amazing. They work really well. Also really enjoy peeling the skin off!”

And another added: “Well worth a pound. I’ve bought family and friends some too. [sic] I was going around saying I was I’m shedding. Takes a while for anything to happen but when it does be prepared.”
However, some customers said they are still waiting for the big peel to take place.
One woman commented: “How long do they peel for mine will be 3 weeks today since they started peeling?”
Shoppers may love foot peel socks, but a podiatrist told Fabulous Digital she did not recommended the beauty product.HOW DO THE POUNDLAND FOOT PEELS WORK?
The socks douse your feet in a low level of salicylic acid to exfoliate feet and target dry skin and callusses.
Balanced with tea tree and peppermi, the serum also hydrates, nourishes and repairs the skin.
You simply slip into the socks, secure them and wait – for best results, leave the socks on for the maximum amount of time.
Once 90 minutes is up, you need to shower the residue off.
Initially, nothing will appear to have changed initially but it is strongly recommend avoiding open shoes or sandals unless you want to run the risk of shedding debri as you walk. Yum.
Within a few days you may notice very thin layers starting to peel and by day six, more substantial amounts.
Hiren Patel from Flawless Feet Podiatry & Laser Clinic said: “As Podiatrist we do not really recommend the use of these peels, especially if you are doing it regularly.
“The main ingredient salicylic acid is used in many chemical peels and potentially if used wrong can cause many problems.
“Also a definite no no for diabetics and other high risk patients.”

A BRIDESMAID has revealed how her demanding bride has insisted she come to a hen do instead of spending time with her relative who is dying from cancer.
The anonymous woman posted on Reddit how the bridezilla wouldn’t let her drop out of the plans to be with her relative in hospital.
Getty - Contributor An upset woman posted on Reddit how the last thing she wants to do is get drunk when she’d rather be in hospital with her relative[/caption]
She wrote: “A close relative of mine is in hospital dying of cancer right now and has been given days to live.
“He is my family’s only priority right now and we are all devastated, he is suffering awfully and we spend our days in the hospital almost waiting for him to be put out of his misery.
“On Saturday I am supposed to be attending my best friends hen party. I am the bridesmaid and have arranged it all with the other bridesmaid.”
The woman said how the party involves drinks at a friend’s house, a meal out and then a night clubbing.
I in no way want to attend, I can’t think of anything worse right now than hosting a group of 14 guests and acting happy when I’ve spent the last week crying, and spending my evening in a club full of drunk people.Bridesmaid on Reddit
She explained: “This has been tough as bride is expecting a lot and her family attending have no money to attend (people have complained about the meals costing £30 when this is all they may have to pay for).
“Some have cancelled and I have lost money because of unpaid deposits.”
Given that her close relative is in a fragile state in hospital, the bridesmaid said that she is definitely not in the mood to party.
She said: “I in no way want to attend, I can’t think of anything worse right now than hosting a group of 14 guests and acting happy when I’ve spent the last week crying, and spending my evening in a club full of drunk people.”
Getty - Contributor The woman said how the party involves drinks at a friend’s house, a meal out and then a night clubbing[/caption]
However, when she shared her thoughts with the bride, it did not go down well at all.
She said: “I’ve called bride tonight to try to hint I may not be able to attend and hoped she’d understand.
“She lost her dad a few years ago to cancer, she knows the impact it has.
“She was supportive in the conversation but also said as long as I’ve organised and attend the hen, then she’s happy. She’s not even considering the possibility of me not attending.
“My boyfriend and family think she is being ridiculous, and I am getting annoyed that she won’t openly give me the option to do whatever I need to do.
“I don’t want to let her down as she means a lot to me, but I am in no position to support her and her party right now.”HOW MUCH IS THE AVERAGE HEN DO?
Hen parties used to be about a bride and her mates having a girls’ night out before her big day.
But nowadays the cost of a hen or stag do has risen to astronomical amounts – with the average person forking out a staggering £507 per event.
Brits even admitted to sacrificing their own holidays so they could attend the big event.
And a third said they expected to use their annual leave for stag or hen dos, which now often involve trips abroad or a full weekend of activities.
The rising costs have understandably been a cause of concern for many, with four in five (80 per cent) saying they feel hen dos and stag dos are far too pricey.
And nearly half (46 per cent) said they have felt pressured to attend an event they just don’t have the funds for.
The research, conducted by clothing retailer Banana Moon, found that despite the rising costs, just over half (55 per cent) of Brits feel they are still integral to a wedding.
She asked Reddit users what they thought of her dilemma, and most were firmly on her side.
One wrote: “You need to straight up say that you will not be going.”
Another added: “It’s totally reasonable of you to skip the hen if you explain you’re simply not up for a party.”
However, some said the bridesmaid should give the bride the benefit of the doubt.
One said: “Right now she might still think that an evening out would be good for you. Please tell her plainly that you are emotionally exhausted and grieving, and that, while you love and support her, you just can’t attend her party.”MOST READ IN FABULOUS O NO!

This year’s Christmas special will see the team take their work to the Outer Hebrides.

Exposed to the elements, they operate in bleak conditions with limited access to water and electricity to help their patients, just in time to reconvene in Poplar for Christmas.The heartwarming show will bring back on the BBCBBCWhat will happen on Call the Midwife series 9?
Opening with the funeral of Winston Churchill in January 1965, series nine then continues with Nonnatus House entering a bold and innovative era.
As the tower blocks multiply, and a new East End rises from the ashes of the old, society becomes more prosperous, but more complex.
Our familiar team of medics and midwives face unexpected challenges as the population shifts, rules change, and old diseases come back to haunt them.
Alongside the joy and optimism of birth, they must cope with cases including diptheria, drug abuse, cancer, tuberculosis, and fistula.
Meanwhile, their own experiences are fuelled by love, loss, and doubt – and the very fabric of their lives is jeopardised when Nonnatus itself comes under threat of demolition.
Heidi Thomas, Creator, Writer and Executive Producer said: “After a magical Christmas experience in the Hebrides featuring wild seas, stormy skies and some very disobedient sheep, we return to the harsher reality of city life in 1965. Society is changing fast and in series 9 we will see Nonnatus House shaken to its foundations.”

MARNIE Simpson has sparked rumours she’s having TWINS as fans spot pink AND blue confetti at gender reveal party last night.
The Geordie Shore babe and partner Casey Johnson, 24, announced they are expecting a baby in October but want to keep the sex under wraps from the public.Marnie and Case a gender reveal partyInstagram
After revealing they were pregnant in OK! Magazine earlier this year, the couple seem keen to keep the news private for the time being.
But it looks like the gender may have accidentally been revealed as in many snaps from the lavish bash, pink confetti could be seen on the floor.
However, other photos showed that the floor was visibly covered with both pink AND blue confetti. Suggesting that the couple could even be having twins.
The 27-year-old and her baby daddy-to-be played host to a slew of reality stars, friends and family who all gathered to discover the sex of their child.But later it looked like there was blue confetti on the floor tooInstagramThe couple’s friends and families were thrilled to be party of the special occasionInstagram / LaurenrosegoodgerMarnie was surrounded by her friends and familyInstagram
Marnie’s cousin Sophie Kasaei was there dressed in a bright pink dress and matching heels, along with several other pals, including Chloe Ferry, Lauren Goodger, Nathan Henry.
The London party took place in a marquee decorated with gold and white balloons, and of course an Instagram-friendly flower wall for picture perfect shots.
One balloon display read: “Baby Johnson,” while another set of floral letters spelt out the word “Baby”.
Guests drank champagne and downed pink and blue shots, while they grazed on doughnuts as they waited eagerly to find out the result.Casey looked thrilled with the gender reveal partyInstagramThe couple’s baby is due in OctoberRefer to CaptionThe pregnancy was a happy surprise for Marnie as she feared she couldn’t have childrenInstagram most read in TV & showbiz baby joy Stacey Solomon gives birth early as she welcomes first child with Joe Swash CORRIE STAR DEAD Corrie and Butterflies actor Andrew Hall dies aged 65 after short illness NAT'S A LIE!

The unplanned pregnancy came as a shock to Marnie as she feared she may be infertile after years of alcohol abuse on Geordie Shore. She also revealed she’d had an abortion when she was younger that she believed would cause complications.
She said: “When I look back I definitely feel I made the right decision. I don’t regret it. I was so young, I didn’t have a job, a driving licence, or any money.”
Last year Marnie admitted making baby plans with her boyfriend of two-and-a-half years.
The couple – who met on Single AF – are now ready to become parents. And the reality TV star has always wanted to have a little boy – and says she’s on target to give birth at the right age in life.
Marnie and Casey are yet to speak publicly on what gender their little one will be, so for now fans will have to keep speculating.

GONZALO HIGUAIN could end up back in Serie A with Juventus, according to fresh reports that underline his desire to reunite with Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Portuguese star’s first few years at Real Madrid coincided with Higuain and the pair played their part in Los Blancos’ lethal attack under Jose Mourinho.Sarri is undoubtedly a fan of Higuain after signing him in JanuaryReutersHow Juve under Sarri could line up
While the former Chelsea manager is not thought to be in the running to join Ronaldo in Turin as Juve’s new coach, the man who is hotly tipped is also a fan of Higuain.
Maurizio Sarri is reportedly the Old Lady’s first choice to succeed Masimilliano Allegri.
That is despite Blues fans never really taking the Italian to heart during a generally successful season that delivered two major finals and a top-four finish.
According to Tuttosport, Sarri returning to Serie A this summer would help urge Higuain to do likewise.
But the bigger draw is Ronaldo, who is named as a favourite colleague of the striker.
Higuain’s time at Chelsea appears to be up after just six months at Stamford Bridge.Latest Chelsea News LAMP IT UP How Chelsea could line up under Frank Lampard next season with transfer ban BAK PAIN Europa League final to be played in front of thousands of empty seats PUL-LED IN Chelsea new boy Pulisic was persuaded to join Blues by Arsenal ace Aubameyang DAVID MEET DAVID Chelsea target £40million Ajax striker Neres... who has same agent as Luiz NEIL ASHTON Lampard is one win from landing Chelsea job at the same age as Mourinho MARC-ED MAN Chelsea defender Alonso wanted by Atletico with Hernandez and Luis set to leave UNDER THE KNIFE Ruben Loftus-Cheek undergoes surgery after rupturing Achilles' tendon COAT OF HARMS Sarri throws jacket on ground as Loftus-Cheek suffers Achilles injury
Said to be desperate to leave, the 31-year-old is only on loan in West London and the club reportedly want to cut his spell short.
In 14 league appearances, Higuain registered five goals – most of which came at home to sides in the bottom-half.
Therefore, it is unlikely he would be missed even if the Blues have their two-season FIFA transfer ban confirmed, currently subject to an appeal.
ARSENAL will step up their pursuit for Bournemouth winger Ryan Fraser after the Europa League final, according to reports.
The 25-year-old has been a huge hit for Eddie Howe’s side this season, scoring eight goals and making 15 assists in 42 appearances.Ryan Fraser joined Bournemouth from Aberdeen in 2013Getty Images - Getty
According to The Independent, the Gunners are hopeful of signing Fraser for less than his £30million valuation.
The source also claims Manchester United are no longer interested in signing the seven-cap Scotland international.
Fraser joined Bournemouth from Aberdeen in 2013 and he is entering the final year of his current contract.
The Cherries want to tie him down with a new deal, but he has already flirted with the idea of joining Arsenal.
When asked about joining Unai Emery’s side, Fraser said: “I’m not going to lie, it’s very nice.latest arsenal news GUNNER sign?

Smaller methods are much harder to spot and this is why the discovery of 18 of them with a new method is so groundbreaking.Kepler-62e is a super-Earth exoplanet, which may be a terrestrial or water planetNASA/JPL-Caltech/T. Pyle
Dr. Rene Heller from the Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research and the first author of the study explained: “Standard search algorithms attempt to identify sudden drops in brightness.
“In reality, however, a stellar disk appears slightly darker at the edge than in the centre.
“When a planet moves in front of a star, it therefore initially blocks less starlight than at the mid-time of the transit. The maximum dimming of the star occurs in the centre of the transit just before the star becomes gradually brighter again.”
The algorithm the researchers have created is more specific because it takes into account that small exoplanets might not have that much of a dimming effect on the star they are orbiting and therefore might go unnoticed.
The researchers tested their new algorithm on data collected by the Kepler space telescope and found the 18 new exoplanets.
Most of these new planets were orbiting their stars very closely and were extremely hot apart from one, which is a “favourable distance” from its star and could be very similar to Earth.
The researchers think that their method will enable them to find more than 100 other Earth-sized worlds in the data of the Kepler primary mission and also help future missions on the quest to find new habitable planets and alien life.What is an exo-planet?
Here's what you need to know...An exoplanet is a planet that is located outside of our Solar System and one that is orbitting its own star, like how Earth orbits the Sun They are very hard to see with telescopes because they are often hidden by the brightness of their star Nasa sent the Kepler space telescope into orbit with the purpose of finding Earth sized exoplanets that might support life Over 4,000 exoplanets have been discovered so far and more missions to find even more exoplanets are planned A good way to spot an exoplanet is to look for “wobbly” stars because a disruption to star light can indicate that a planet is orbitting it and therefore blocking out light on occasion Expoplanets are very common in the Universe and the more we find that look like Earth the closer we get to knowing if we’re not alone out there TOP STORIES IN SCIENCE shame remains Wreck of last slave ship that illegally ferried 100s from Africa to US found KILLER'S HANDBOOK Diary of UK's most notorious HANGMAN who executed 200 Nazis up at auction Priceless prize World's rarest piece of gold is so valuable experts refuse to reveal price GOLDEN MOULDY Boffins brew 5,000-year-old BEER by scraping yeast from ancient pots MEGAMIND 'Google' brain implants could end school as anyone can learn anything instantly ANCIENT TERROR Virtually unheard-of global cataclysm killed MILLIONS in 6th Century

CAMPING fans have a new way to get even closer to nature – by sleeping in see-through tents.
Some are almost completely transparent, with just a thin mesh for the walls – instead of having the usual outer cover.

While some have simply removed the outer cover of a normal tent, others are specifically made to be see through.
The trend allows happy campers to see everything around them from the moment they wake, perfect when staying somewhere picturesque, such as a forest or a beach.
They are also similar to bubble tents, which are clear plastic globe-shaped tents that have risen in popularity in recent years.
Photos of these picturesque spaces have flooded Instagram – but while the views are dreamy, users are conflicted about whether or not they like them.

THERESA May has appointed Mel Stride as the Leader of the House of Commons.
The move came after Andrea Leadsom dramatically quit on the eve of the EU Parliament elections.Mel Stride gives Gladstone the Treasury cat a strokeTwitterWho is Mel Stride?
Stride, 57, has been the Conservative MP for Central Devon since 2010.
May was forced to make a Cabinet reshuffle after Leadsom quit as Commons leader on Wednesday night over May’s Brexit plan.
Stride is a former Tory whip and became a financial secretary to the Treasury in June 2017.
His position in the Treasury has been replace by Jesse Norman.
Michael Ellis, previously the arts minister, has been appointed as a Transport minister.
Backbencher Rebecca Pow has been made a junior minister at the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport.
Stride was born in Ealing, west London in 1961.
He attended Portsmouth Grammar School before studying at St Edmond Hall, Oxford where he became the president of the Oxford Union.
Stride was selected as a prospective Tory candidate for Central Devon in June 2006 and he was the first A-lister to be selected under David Cameron’s Conservative A-List.
He became an MP in the 2010 general election with over 15,000.
Stride became Lord Commissioner of the Treasury in May 2015, under George Osborne and then made Paymaster General in June 2017, reporting to Philip Hammond.Stride has been an MP since 2010Chris McAndrew/UK Parliament
He opposed Brexit before the 2016 referendum.
Stride came under fire over his comments on the Loan Charge and was accused of “disgracefully” obstructing a House of Lords inquiry and “dishonestly” misleading MPs over tax reforms charges.
He has defended himself robustly saying the Loan Charge had brought in £1billion of unpaid taxes and the government has continued to support him.
Stride made himself known to Tories recently as the parliamentary campaign manager for Michael Gove’s expected leadership bid.Why did Andrea Leadsom resign from the Cabinet?
Leadsom resigned from Theresa May’s Cabinet over the Prime Minister’s Brexit plan – a day before the country’s European Parliament elections.
She said it was with a “heavy heart” that she could no longer support the government’s approach after May’s latest gambit to pass her withdrawal agreement deal backfired among both Tory and Labour MPs.
In her resignation letter she wrote: “I cannot fulfil my duty as Leader of the House tomorrow, to announce a Bill with new elements that I fundamentally oppose.”Stride has replaced Andrea Leadsom as the leader of the CommonsPA:Press Association
And she added, in a call for Mrs May to stand down: “I do now urge you to make the right decisions in the interests of the country, this Government and our party.”
She went on: “I do not believe that we will be a truly sovereign United Kingdom through the deal that is now proposed.
“I no longer believe that our approach will deliver on the referendum result.
“I have always maintained that a second referendum would be dangerously divisive, and I do not support the Government willingly facilitating such a concession.
“It would also risk undermining our Union which is something I passionately want to see strengthened.most read in politics STAY OF BREXECUTION Doomed May could cling on for two more weeks and quit after Trump visit grin when eur winning Beaming Farage votes in £150m EU election as PM & Jez face wipeout MILKFAKE Defiant Nigel Farage blasts claims he hid from milkshake mob on campaign bus BACK TO THE POLLS European Parliament elections TODAY- here's the candidates & latest odds BREXIT MEANS BREXIT What is The Brexit Party and how is Nigel Farage involved? #DENIEDMYVOTE Brit expats complain they've been stopped from voting in Euro elections
“There has been such a breakdown of government processes that recent Brexit-related legislative proposals have not been properly scrutinised or approved by Cabinet members.
“The tolerance to those in Cabinet who have advocated policies contrary to the Government’s position has led to a complete breakdown of collective responsibility.
“It is therefore with great regret and with a heavy heart that I resign from the Government.”

THEY’RE the world’s most popular phone – but the iPhone could also be the world’s deadliest device, with the death toll from accidental electrocution rising.
This week, a toddler in India was horrifically electrocuted after she put the lead of a phone charger in her mouth while it was still plugged into the wall and switched on.Lots of deaths have been caused by phones, including Irina Rybnikova who was electrocuted in her bath when her mobile fell in the water while it was chargingEast2west News
She was rushed to hospital by her distraught mum Razia but pronounced dead on arrival.
Sadly, this is far from a one off incident and over the last few years the smartphone has left a trail of death and destruction with both adults and children injured or killed by this deadly device.
Apple sold a massive 216.76 million of them in 2017 but here we reveal the ways the iPhone has turned deadly:1. Messaging while lying in the bath
Electrical appliances and water never go well but for Richard Bull, 32, from Ealing, London taking his iPhone into the bath, while attached to his charger, cost him his life.
Richard was electrocuted and died after he plugged his charger into an extension cord from his hallway and suffered severe burns on his chest, arm and hand when he rested the charger on his chest and it touched the water.Richard Bull was electrocuted in the bath by his iPhone chargerCentral News
At the time, product safety manager at the Electrical Safety Council, Steve Curtler said such devices typically had a low voltage of 5V to 20V so “you probably wouldn’t feel it” if they came into contact with water, he added.
However, connecting a mobile to a charger plugged into the mains electricity supply increased the risk of harm.
As the coroner Dr Sean Cummings said at the inquest into Richard’s death: “These seem like innocuous devices, but they can be as dangerous as a hairdryer in a bathroom. They should attach warnings.”
Just a few months later 15 year-old Irina Rybnikova from Bratsk in Russia was killed in a similar way.
The teenager was messaging friends in the bath when she dropped her iPhone in the water because her fingers were wet.
Tragically, the phone was attached to a charging cable and Irina was electrocuted, dying from heart failure, her body found by her devastated parents.A 20 year old Russian woman was electrocuted after using her mobile in the bathEast2west News2. Talking while your phone is on charge
How many of us have answered a call on our iPhone while it’s charging?
Ma Ailun, 23, a Chinese air stewardess, did just that on her iPhone 5 in 2013 and was killed by an electric shock, just weeks before her wedding, with her neck showing obvious signs of electrical injury.
Apple carried out an investigation and it transpired that a third-party charger was in fact to blame as cheap copy chargers – which were flooding the Chinese market – didn’t have to meet safety standards and could get too hot, which may have contributed to the electrocution.
Indeed, experts said if the charger or the circuit has a problem, such as a broken wire, it could lead to a fatal shock of 220 volts.
Apple subsequently announced that anyone worried their USB charger may be a counterfeit could take it into an Apple store between August and October that year and have it replaced by one made by the company.Ma Ailun was killed by an electric shock just weeks before her weddingNicholas Razzell3. Rolling onto your charger while asleep
Sleeping with your phone on charge is another big no-no.
A Vietnamese teenager tragically died in 2017 after being electrocuted in her sleep when she rolled onto her iPhone charging cable.
Le Thi Xoan was found unconscious by her parents and rushed to hospital where she was later pronounced dead, with electrocution being the official cause.
It’s thought she plugged her phone in and rested it on her bed – as she did every night.
Police in Hanoi, Vietnam, found a burnt white cable on her bed and said a tear in the rubber casing may have caused the incident.
There were also visible tears in the cable, which had been patched up, which could be where the live wires touched her.Le Thi Xoan was electrocuted in her sleep when she rolled onto her iPhone charging cableAsiaWire
Wiley Day also discovered the dangers of taking your iPhone to bed with you.
The 32 year-old from Alabama in the States had his phone on charge by his bed while he slept, and when he rolled over the next morning, a dog-tag necklace he was wearing caught on the exposed prongs of the charger head, which had come loose from the extension cord.
The metal chain suddenly became a conductor for the electricity — and burned his flesh.
He managed to tear the necklace off but there were strips of skin missing where the metal chain had scorched his neck.Wiley Day was electrocuted when his dog tag slipped between his charger and the extension cordGoFUNDME
He was treated for second and third degree burns and a local physician reckoned he’d been jolted by 110 volts of electricity and was lucky to be alive – 100 volts could kill a person.
In America, charger extension cords are at the root of over 4,000 fires and dozens of deaths every year, according to the American Burn Association.Wiley pulled off the necklace but there were strips of his skin missing where the chain had scorched his neckGoFUNDME4. Listening to music while you sleep
It can be a lovely, soothing way to drift off but listening to music on your headphones to get to sleep can be fatal.
In December 2018, 16-year-old Mohd Aidi Azzhar Zahrin was discovered by his mother at their home in the town of Rembau, Malaysia, lying motionless on the floor and cold to the touch with blood pouring from his ear.
He was listening to headphones while charging his phone and an autopsy later confirmed that the cause of death was electrocution.
His brother had felt a small electric shock when touching the charging cable, indicating it may have been faulty.
Sadly, this wasn’t a one-off freak accident.
In February that year, 17-year-old student Luiza Pinheiro was similarly found dead on the floor of her home in Riacho Frio, Brazil after a “huge electric charge” surged through her phone and the headphones melted in her ears.Luiza Pinheiro was found dead when she fell asleep listening to musicInstagram
Later on in May, a 46-year-old woman in the Indian village of Kanathur was electrocuted after she fell asleep listening to music, and a month later, a 22-year-old man in the Indian village of Pandyo was listening to music from a plugged-in mobile phone while the electricity in his house was cut off.
When the power came on, he received an electric shock through his headphones and was also killed.
This isn’t just a problem confined to developing countries, either.
In 2014, a 28-year-old Australian woman was found dead at her home in North Gosford, New South Wales after she’d been electrocuted by a faulty USB cable she was using to charge her phone while listening to music with headphones.
“These devices pose a serious risk of electrocution or fire,” Australian Fair Trading Commissioner Rod Stowe said at the time and cautioned against using any devices while they were plugged in and charging.5. Charging your phone under your pillow
Phone charger fires are becoming increasingly common across the UK.
Dwayne Blanchard, a father-of-three from Sunderland, smelt burning coming from his 12 year-old son Brandon’s bedroom one morning in 2016.
He ran in to find his pillow on fire where Brandon’s phone and Bluetooth speaker had been charging. Dwayne managed to put it out but it was a lucky escape for the entire family.Dwayne Blanchard’s family had a lucky escape when a phone charger set fire to his son’s pillowMercury Press most read in tech HOUSE PARTY The Sims 4 is free to download and keep FOREVER - but you have to act fast i-SPY I thought I was paranoid, but now I'm 100 per cent sure our phones listen to us shame remains Wreck of last slave ship that illegally ferried 100s from Africa to US found SPACE NEIGHBOURS Nasa finds 18 hidden 'Earth-sized planets' lurking near our Solar System KILLER'S HANDBOOK Diary of UK's most notorious HANGMAN who executed 200 Nazis up at auction NETFLIX FOR FOOD Uber Eats 'to offer £8 a month' food service for UNLIMITED deliveries
Fire safety charity Electrical Safety First warned against charging phones on beds, saying the dangerous practice could set sheets ablaze as there was nowhere for the heat generated to dissipate.
The charity’s 2016 research showed that 53 per cent of youngsters admitted leaving their phone, laptop or tablet charging on their bed and 38 per cent more kept them under pillows overnight.
Cheap, unbranded chargers were seen as the main culprits as they were more likely to contain faulty parts that could overheat or catch fire.
BROOKLYN Beckham put on a very loved-up display with Hana Cross this week, as they made their red carpet debut for the premiere of Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.
But a photo of the pair on the red carpet seems to have attracted attention for all the wrong reasons after fans couldn’t believe the model’s striking resemblance to 20-year-old Brooklyn’s mum, Victoria.The couple made their red carpet debut this weekRex Features
Posting an image of his new girlfriend on Instagram, the colour co-ordinated couple looked happy and relaxed on the red carpet at Cannes.
But fans immediately pointed out the resemblance between Hana and Vic, with one cheekily commenting: “[Your] mum looks amazing wow! So sweet, mum and son together on the red carpet.”
And it’s not the first time the 22-year-old model has been compared to Posh, either.
Earlier this year, fans pointed out the brunettes have a similar fashion sense, with one claiming the model “looks like Posh” while another referred to Hana as “[looking] like Brooklyn’s Mommy.”Fans think Hana looks like VicGetty Images - Getty
For example, when Victoria wore a camo jacket and dark trousers on a trip to New York in November last year, Hana was wearing the same to the GQ Car Awards in London just weeks later.
Another time, Posh dressed in a low-cut black top paired with dark trousers for a VIP dinner.
Known for her simple but chic style, the trademark VB look was recreated by Hana, who later sported a similar style at London Fashion Week.Vic wore a camo jacket in New YorkSplash NewsHana wore a similar style at the GQ Car AwardsSplash NewsVictoria often pairs an all-black ensemble with sky-high heelsSplash NewsThe model recreated the look while attending the London Fabulous Fund FairGetty - Contributor
If that wasn’t enough, it was reported that the former Spice Girl had even offered to style her son’s girlfriend before she headed off to Coachella in April.
With her loose brunette hair, perfect pout and understated make-up, we have to admit – Hana does look like a young Posh.
But is there a reason why men go for women who are just like their mums?It was reported that Victoria had offered to style Hana for CoachellaGetty - Contributor
It might seem odd, but it’s not unusual.
When researchers in Finland analysed the faces of 70 couples, they found startling results.
According to Urszula Marcinkowska, evolutionary psychologist at the University of Turku, researchers found men were likely to partner with someone who “significantly” resembled their mother.
Women on the other hand, showed no signs of ending up with a man who had similarities to their dads.
It’s all to do with natural selection – apparently, it’s human instinct to find a partner from the same “species group”.
Since the earliest contact men have is with their mums, it’s believed she becomes a “template” for future relationships.Victoria and David at a Haig Club dinnerThe pair even pose in a similar wayInstagram
TV psychologist Dr Arthur Cassidy, agrees, explaining their are a number of evolutionary reasons why Brooklyn might go for someone like Vic.
“There are sound psychological reasons why Brooklyn is motivated to choose a highly attractive girlfriend like his mum,” Arthur told Fabulous Digital.
“Much of this depends on what we call secure attachment, a bonding process in parent child rearing behaviour.
“Psychologists and scientists have long known that species including birds, mammals and fish select mates with identical features like their mums.
“In humans,the focus is on facial structure – for example, eye shape and lip fullness.
“This is known as positive sexual imprinting. For example, if a goat mother looks after a sheep baby, or a sheep mother looks after a goat baby, then those babies grow up to try to mate with the species of their foster mother, instead of their own.”Posh at at the People’s Choice AwardsGetty - ContributorHana and Brooklyn just a few months laterGetty - Contributor
“It seems humans also ‘learn’ from our parents in a similar way,” Arthur continued.
“When you ask people to judge the similarities between heterosexual couples and their parents from photos, an amazing picture emerges.
“Men often choose partners who resemble their mothers, but resemblance doesn’t stop at faces – you can also see subtle similarities on average between partner and parent height, hair colour, eye colour, ethnicity and much more.”VB wears a low-cut top for a VIP dinnerHana copies Vic’s hand-in-pocket poseGetty - Contributor
But is there another reason why Hana is styling herself on Vic?
Body language expert Judi James thinks it could even be a “smart move” from Hana as a way of “integrating” into the close-knit Beckham clan.
“The way Hana has copied the pout, the poses and the signature styling suggests Hana has moved into Brooklyn‘s life and affections by stealth, mirroring his mother Victoria to make the transition almost invisible,” Judi told Fabulous Digital.Victoria often posts about her beauty regime on social mediaInstagramHana is also a fan of the post shower selfieInstagram
“Brooklyn’s body language has always defined the closest of loving ties with his mum, but although Hana’s non-verbal mimicry might be flattering, could it also be a smart move in terms of becoming the number one woman in his life?
“Family ties have always been important to Brooklyn and Hana’s behaviour could be a clever move to integrate into a very tight group.
“It’s not unusual for men and women to find partners that resemble their parents and this is often a sign of them having a strong influence in their lives or providing a subliminal ‘ideal’ in terms of how they looked or behaved, or the strength of their own marriage.
“Often the son or daughter is unaware of the similarities until it’s pointed out, which could be exactly what’s happening to Brooklyn right now!”The pair looked seriously loved up this weekSplash News

TOWIE’S Dan Edgar and Chloe Sims have sparked rumours they’re back together AGAIN as they jet off to Ibiza on a secret holiday.
The on/off couple were spotted at Stansted airport today (Thursday) about to board a flight to the White Isle.

Friends tells The Sun Online they are hoping the exes can now rekindle their romance away from the pressures of Essex.
A source close to Dan says: “We’d really like Dan and Chloe to rekindle their romance on this holiday and who knows what might happen!”
But another source added that it was a stress-free holiday as Chloe was joined by her sister Demi, 22, and pals Georgia Kousoulou, 27, and Tommy Mallet, 28, while Dan brought his along his friends, including co-star Sam Mucklow, 27.
Instagram Dan also posted Instagram Stories confirming he was on the same holiday as Chloe[/caption]

Another source close to them said: “They’re still just good friends and there’s a whole group of them on the holiday so they’re not together again – but it wouldn’t surprise anyone if they grew close again on this trip.”
However, there will be a surprise in store for them when they land as Dan’s ex, Amber Turner, 26, is also in Ibiza with her new boyfriend, businessman Edward Crossan.
They pair were pictured a day before Chloe and Dan arrived, kissing on a yacht.
Amber – who was in a one-year relationship with Dan until beginning of the year – briefly returned to TOWIE earlier this month to inform Chloe that Dan had been sleeping with them both at the same time.

Not only that, but he had told her he loved her just 48 hours before he bedded Chloe during the TOWIE trip to Thailand in February, where Chloe and Dan’s romance first started.
It led to Dan being dumped by both Chloe and Amber, with Chloe telling Dan he had broken her heart.

LOUISE Redknapp has been ordered to appear in court after allegedly running a red light in her £31,000 Range Rover.
The 44-year-old singer was charged last year after jumping the light in Wandsworth, South West London, and failing to give details of the driver.Louise Redknapp will appear in courtGetty - Contributor
Her lawyers appeared at Willesden Magistrate’s Court but the case was adjourned after it was ruled Louise must appear in person.
The court was told the two litre diesel Land Rover Evoque was “driven against the indication given by the red signal after 1.4 seconds”.
An official added: “She is alleged to have failed to comply with the indication given by a traffic signal.
“She is also said to have failed to give information relating to the identification of the driver of a Land Rover.”
The singer is accused of driving through the red light at around 9.34am on November 2.
She then failed to give information relating to the identification of the driver of a Land Rover allegedly guilty of an offence on December 10, it was said.
Most drivers receive a a £100 fine and three points on their licence if they are caught jumping through a red light.
If they fail to respond or provide the details of the driver, they could be prosecuted and get slapped with a £1,000 fine and six penalty points.MOST READ IN NEWS CHILLING SLIP Maxine Carr caught over Soham murders thanks to key mistake in TV interview CARE SICKOS Smirking care home staff attack autistic patient & use 'psychological torture' 'not knowing is torture' Dad of vanished teen sometimes 'envies parents of murdered kids' 'I LAUGHED AT HIM' Ex-Para Brexit voter, 81, mocks childish yob who threw milkshake at him STAY OF BREXECUTION Doomed May could cling on for two more weeks and quit after Trump visit PIPE DREAM Horny teen gets his penis stuck while having sex with a metal sewage pipe

New man Ed couldn’t keep his hands off of the bikini-clad blonde as he copped a cheeky feel of her bum before they shared a passionate snog.
When he isn’t living it up in Ibiza with Amber, Ed is the vice chairman of a family run waste management company.
His dad also owns part of London Irish rugby club.The pair looked head over heels as they relaxed on board the luxury vesselSplash NewsEd couldn’t keep his hands off the gorgeous blondeSplash NewsEd has even met the blonde’s pals as they partied at Ocean Beach Ibiza
And it seems Ed is already a hit with Amber’s pals as a social media snap shows the pair hanging out with friends at celebrity haunt Ocean Beach Ibiza.
Amber’s romance couldn’t have come at a better time given that the blonde cried her final tears over ex-boyfriend Dan earlier this month.
The blonde made a brief return to Towie to confront Dan over his treatment of her and his new on/off partner Chloe Sims.
Dan began a relationship with Chloe in Thailand while still having feelings for his Amber and sleeping with her too.Ed was even on hand to take some of Amber’s smouldering snapsSplash NewsThe couple looked the real dealSplash Newsthe vice chairman of a family run waste management companyINSTAGRAM MOST READ IN TV & SHOWBIZ baby joy Stacey Solomon gives birth early as she welcomes first child with Joe Swash CORRIE STAR DEAD Corrie and Butterflies actor Andrew Hall dies aged 65 after short illness NAT'S A LIE!

After thinking his talk with Chloe went well, Dan was left speechless after his showdown with ex-Amber – who stormed out in tears.
The 25-year-old called him “pathetic” and a “liar.”
Drawing a line under their relationship she said: “I can never get back with you.”
She added: “You can never be faithful to anyone. Good luck with your life,” before storming out.

MEET the avid video gaming dad who has spent over £15,000 on his massive collection of 1,100 retro games and even has an ENTIRE ROOM devoted to them.
Retail manager, Cameron Lasby, 36, from Milton, Ontario, Canada became obsessed with gaming as a child and over the course of his life has acquired quite the collection of old retro consoles and hard-to-come-by classic games.
MDWfeatures / Cameron Lasby Retail manager, Cameron Lasby, 36, from Milton, Ontario, Canada became obsessed with gaming as a child and over the course of his life has acquired quite the collection of old retro consoles[/caption]
MDWfeatures / Cameron Lasby Cameron is a father to five-month-old son Edward[/caption]
When he was a young child, Cameron was surrounded by games that his older brother, Noel, 47, used to play.
His earliest memories were of his brother and his friends playing Vanguard, Moon, Patrol, Dig Dug and Pitfall on the Atari 2600, which were played on an old black and white TV.
Then in 2012 he found all his old games and realised that virtual games can never be a match for having the actual cartridges and his hobby in collecting them began.
Since then Cameron has amassed over 1,100 items all related to retro gaming, including games, consoles and other paraphernalia.
He said: “Video games have always been part of my life. My only brother is eleven years older than me, and when I was born, there were already video games in the household.
“Fast forward a few years, and once again, I dug out all my old video games that I still had.
“Something intangible just made me want to have the actual cartridges of some games, rather than digital versions. From there on in, I started collecting retro games.
“Since then I’ve managed to grow my collection to over 1,100 items worth at least £15,000.”‘MY WIFE LIKES IT’
Cameron and his wife, Marie Davidson, 32, met in early 2007 on the rave scene through her brother and they just moved into their first home with their five-month-old son, Edward, and their Siberian husky, Kain.
And although Cameron loves his retro gaming, he doesn’t believe it has come between him being a good husband or father to his son. He works hard at keeping a balance between the two.
He warns that the hobby can be expensive, especially when he’s after rare games, but reminds everyone that there’s always going to be another copy of a game they want just around the corner.
Cameron added: “My wife thinks my hobby is nice and she likes that I have an outlet. I believe I do a really good job of making things work for me, my wife and our child.”
Cameron’s favourite old console is the Super Nintendo and The Switch is his number one current generation console.
He finds it very difficult to decide which games are his favourites but some of the top titles include The Legend of Zelda, Final Fantasy on the Super Nintendo, Super Mario Brothers on the NES and Wonder Boy on the Sega Master System.
Due to a rise in interest in retro gaming in recent years, the cost and accessibility of many old games are difficult or expensive to come by.
Cameron’s trying hard to acquire games that are rare and sought after such as Aero Fighters and Final Fight three for the Super Nintendo and Double Dragon for PC Engine, but they can often cost in the thousands.MOST READ IN SUN MEN HOW DOES HE DO IT?

He added: “When I first started collecting and posting my collections on Instagram I had no idea what a community there was for it.
I’ve made so many like-minded friends and we have exchanged amazing stories. I’ve even got to meet some of them in person.
“If you want to get into this hobby just be patient when you see a game you want. There’ll always be another copy of what you’re after. It’s far too easy to drop a bunch of money on a title you’ve been after for a while. Be patient and it will come to you.”

IF YOUR skin is flakier than that friend that always cancels last minute, it’s time to buff up.
As well as revealing a brighter complexion, there’s a host of benefits that regularly using the best exfoliators can bring.View this post on Instagram
A post shared by ELEMIS (@elemis) on Jan 15, 2019 at 1:55pm PST
A good exfoliant will slough away dead skin and improve cell turnover to even out and smooth your skin tone. Nourishing oils are used to hydrate, while soothing extracts like cucumber calm your complexion and reduce redness and inflammation.

Chemical-free exfoliants, meanwhile, often use natural ingredients like sugar and jojoba beads to resurface your skin and protect it from anti-ageing free radicals.

PATSY Palmer is set to pause her life in America for a return to Albert Square as Bianca Jackson on EastEnders.
Yet going by her incredible Instagram account she’ll be giving up a lot for the privilege of reuniting with troubled on-screen daughter Tiffany on the soap.
Patsy and her cabbie husband Richard Merkel traded in life in Blighty for Malibu back in 2014.
The red headed beauty, 46, quit acting in 1999 to “spend more time with her family and pursue other projects” and began home schooling her three youngest kids.
The star headed stateside in 2014 with cabbie husband Richard Merkell and turned to DJing in Malibu for fun while son Fenton, 18, and daughter Emilia, 17, worked on their showbiz careers.
And the family set up quite the inner circle of famous friends in the Californian sunshine through Patsy’s passion for empowering women.
Even her brood hang out with the offspring of superstars.Patsy Palmer took up DJing and inspiring women at her Malibu Members breakfast club when she moved to CaliforniaHer Instagram is a shrine to her kids, including Emilia, 17The soap star loves to post beautiful landscapes of the beach near to her homeHer life across the pond with husband Richard Merkell is a far cry from London where she grew up
Fenton is a model signed to The Dragonfly Agency and is rumoured to be dating Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Rinna’s daughter Delilah Belle.
While his ex is said to be Cindy Crawford’s daughter Kaia, who is good friends with Hollywood royal Kendall Jenner.
Meanwhile, Emilia is also becoming a face on the modelling scene as the LA-based teenagers focus on their careers.
EastEnders legend Patsy said about her kids last year: “They don’t really like school anyway, I hated it when I was a kid, so I’m never going to push them.View this post on Instagram

“They’re very creative – I feel like there’s a lot more they could be doing outside of school, anyway.”
Instead of school, the kids study classes online so that they can have the flexibility to attend acting lessons and auditions.
Patsy added: “It’s so far to go anyway. If they have a casting in the day it’s going to be hard for them to get there.”
Patsy’s eldest son Charley Palmer Rothwell – who Patsy had with former boyfriend, boxer Alfie Rothwell – lives back in London and is a rising star on the big screen, having bagged decent roles in iBoy, Dunkirk and opposite Tom Hardy in Legend.View this post on Instagram

Despite her return to the Square, Patsy had admitted in the past that her new LA lifestyle meant she “didn’t miss” acting at all.
She added: “I don’t miss it one bit. I love talking to women, being around women, women that want to support each other.”
Her Instagram is littered with inspirational quotes as she told fans last month: “Take a break people… Book a massage .. have some reiki .. meditate .. Have a relaxing weekend people .. namaste”

THOMAS TUCHEL has revealed that both Neymar and Kylian Mbappe could leave Paris Saint-Germain in the summer following reports the pair have fallen out.
Real Madrid are claimed to be ready to pounce on signing either player with the Les Parisiens boss fuelling speculation they could be heading out the door.PSG boss Thomas Tuchel has claimed Neymar and Kylian Mbappe could leave in the summer
Speaking at a press conference, the ex-Borussia Dortmund gaffer said: “As a coach, I do want them to continue, but this is football, we are not naive.
“Many clubs want to transfer many players and the market is crazy, but if you ask me, the coach, yes, I want them here next season. But if they are not, we will find solutions.”
Mbappe stunned PSG earlier this week when he picked up his Ligue 1 Player of the Year award, as he insisted his future could lie somewhere else.
The French World Cup winner said: “It’s very important moment for me, I come to a turning point in my career.
“I have discovered a lot here, and I feel it is perhaps the moment to have more responsibility.
“I hope that can maybe be at Paris Saint-Germain, that would be a great pleasure, or perhaps elsewhere with a new project.”
Addressing the 20-year-old’s comments, Tuchel said: “Mbappe has goals, he is very intelligent and maybe he thought it was time to say it, but he is invited, like all PSG players, to assume responsibilities.
“It is not necessary to make a speech to say that. He’s a special guy, he wants to score, score and score, win all the possible titles. We have to accept it, I’m not angry.”MOST READ IN FOOTBALL SOL SEARCHING Get the latest updates from Old Trafford as Ole plots summer overhaul CILL-ED THE DEAL Man Utd target Cillessen agrees Benfica move as Barca hold out for £22m MAGIC OF THE CUP ITV snatch FA Cup rights from BT Sport making tournament free-to-air again ROCK N RULE Seven new radical rule changes coming into the Premier League next season PHENIX BAN Former Southport star Phenix banned for four years after failed drugs test HELPING HEND Man Utd can replace De Gea with Henderson as stats show he had better season
Neymar and Mbappe reportedly fell out with each other following the French Cup final defeat against Rennes, where the Brazilian slammed the squad’s “young people”.
Mbappe felt the dig was aimed at him, especially after he was shown a red card in the shock result as Tuchel’s side lost on penalties.
While it has also been claimed that Mbappe is fuming with his manager after he lost out on the European Golden Shoe to Lionel Messi, believing he would have won if he hadn’t been dropped for matches.
WOMEN are raving about a new type of reusable manicure which is perfect if your talons have been damaged by acrylics.
Static Nails claims to be the world’s first re-usable manicure, with the falsies simply ‘popping off’ when they’re ready to be removed.Women with brittle nails are raving about the falsies@matryoshka_nailss / Instagram
Costing as little as £11.74 for a set of 24 – which you can use time and time again – the nails come in 12 sizes so you get 14 back-up nails with each kit.
You can choose how long you want them on for, between as little as 24 hours or up to 18 days, depending on the amount of glue used.
They can be applied in minutes, and claim to survive doing the “garden, laundry, changing a tyre, styling hair and showering”.
The website says: “Unlike drugstore products, our specially formulated glue bonds like an acrylic, but basically dissolves as you wear it so there is no damage or glue residue left behind when removed properly.The nails can be applied in just minutes for a salon quality finish@matryoshka_nailss / Instagram
“Static Nails’ Non-Damaging Glue gives you the luxury of choosing your own wear time.
“The amount applied determines how long the nails will stay on, for example, a day, a week, up to 18 days and everything in-between.
“As long as the nails are not forced removed you will have zero damage or glue residue left over.
“It’s our own formula which bonds like an acrylic but dissolves as you wear it. The more glue, the longer the nails stay on.
“After a few days, the glue starts to break down leaving no damage or glue residue.”Tips to avoid a bad manicure Choose soak-off gel nails instead of acrylic nails Go to a salon that uses an LED curing light rather than a UV curing light Ask your nail technician to skip the cuticle trimming Reserve artificial nails for special occasion
– American Academy of Dermatology Association
A study by Totally Money found some women spend hundreds on getting their nails done each year.
Women from Coventry forked out the most, splashing out on £203 every year.
But prolonged use of acrylics can leave nails dry, brittle, prone to snapping and vulnerable to infection.
The American Academy of Dermatology Association warned frequently wearing acrylic nails can “seriously damage your natural nails”.
They said: “To get acrylic nails (a type of artificial nail) to stick, the surface of your natural nails must be filed until they feel rough.
“This thins your natural nails, making them weaker. Chemicals in the products used to apply artificial nails can irritate the skin around your nails and elsewhere.You get 24 nails per pack in 12 different sizes@staticnailsofficial / Instagram
“To remove artificial nails, you often need to soak in acetone or file them off.
“If you want to wear artificial nails for more than a few weeks, you’ll need touchups every 2 to 3 weeks to fill in the gaps that appear as your nails grow.
“In short, artificial nails can leave your nails thin, brittle, and parched.”
Women who have brittle nails after using gels and acrylics are raving about the nails, claiming it’s allowed them to have salon-perfect hands without risking further damage.WHAT DO THE EXPERTS SAY?
Kirstin and Valerie from beauty salon Live True London gave their views on the nails.
They told Fabulous Digital: “Soaking acrylics off with acetone can also cause the nails to dry and become brittle – it’s not the acrylic itself that causes damage.
“As with any beauty routine, balance is key. As you would with eyelash and hair extensions – use highly experienced qualified professionals to apply them and give your nails a break every few months.
“The removal of the ‘pop on’ nail extensions with ease means that there will be minimal damage to the nail surface itself, thus maintaining the integrity and strength in your nails over time. It’s an exciting step forward.”You can buy them in the Queen’s favourite shade, ballet slipperStatic NailsStatic Nails Ballet Slippers Pop-On Reusable Manicure Set, Nordstrom, £13.43 – buy now
Leaving rave reviews, one woman said: “Love my static nails! Such a perfect and beautiful alternative to damaging acrylics!”
Another said: “My boyfriend got these for my birthday since I wanted to take a break from acrylics, my nails were getting too damaged from all the salon trips.
“I had them on for a few weeks and really loved them.”
A third wrote: “The Static Pop on nails (@staticnailsofficial) has been everything it was advertised to be.
“About 4 years ago I decided to do away with any type of artificial nails since they were making my nails brittle.”
While this woman said: “It really does look like a salon finish acrylic nails for a fraction of the cost, time, and upkeep.”View this post on Instagram

GODZILLA: King of the Monsters will soon be entering cinemas across the UK and critics have already declared this as one of the best installments in the franchise.
If you’re wondering whether to catch the latest flick, here’s all you need to know…View this post on Instagram
A post shared by Godzilla: King of the Monsters (@godzillamovie) on Apr 18, 2019 at 9:00am PDTWhat’s the UK release date?
The film is expected to hit cinemas in the UK on May 29.
Particularly interesting is that Godzilla will also be screened in 3d 4DX.How have fans and critics reacted to the movie?
IGN’s Terri Schwartz was one of the first writers to review the film, stressing how the movie “promises a showdown between Godzilla and King Ghidorah, and it absolutely delivers over and over again”.
Terri later tweeted that she was fortunate enough to catch an early screening of the film in Tokyo, and it goes without saying that the latest installment appears to be the best one in the series.
Schwartz continued: “As someone who is not by any means a Godzilla[…] if you’re looking for some Kaiju-on-Kaiju action, you won’t be disappointed.
“Though there are humans in the story to help move the plot along, they are rightly there to support the greater conflict at play”.View this post on Instagram
A post shared by Godzilla: King of the Monsters (@godzillamovie) on Apr 24, 2019 at 8:59am PDT
Collider’s editor-in-chief Steven Weintraub seemed delighted to report positive feedback on the film after having famously trashed 2014’s Godzilla.
Steven took to Twitter, sharing: “Had real issues with godzilla. The movie was called Godzilla but he was barely in it. Thankfully Mike Dougherty’s Godzilla King of the Monsters is awesome.
“It’s everything I wanted last movie to b but wasn’t. If u want to see Godzilla fighting other monsters u will b happy”.
He further added that fans will definitely appreciate the amount of work that went behind the graphics, stressing that the movie has a solid storyline with superb visual effects.
“Also the VFX in Godzilla are insane. I’m so impressed with what Mike Dougherty did with the material and monster battles and can’t wait to see it again.
If you weren’t looking forward to the new GodzillaMovie it’s time to buy tickets.
Dan Casey, who is the creative director at Nerdist, continued with the Twitter reviews, insisting that he hadn’t had this much fun watching an action movie in the cinema.
Not only that, but Dan also thinks that the newest Godzilla film is one of the best flicks in the Monsterverse line-up of movies. It’s simply that great.
He writes: “Godzilla: King of the Monsters rules so goddamn hard. Easily the most fun I’ve had in theaters all year and the best Monsterverse entry yet.
“The scale is mind-boggling & every action scene could be your new desktop wallpaper. See it on the biggest screen possible. ~GodzillaMovie”.Who’s in the cast? Kyle Chandler
Kyle Chandler joins the franchise playing the role of Mark Russell.
Not only is the Hollywood star appearing in this movie, but he will also be reprising the character for the next installment titled Godzilla vs. Kong next year.
Kyle is also known for starring in movies such as Argo, Super 8 and 2016’s award-winning Manchester by the Sea.Vera Farmiga
Vera Farmiga is best recognised for playing Lorraine Warren in The Conjuring series, but now she’ll take on the role of Dr. Emma Russell.

THE Premier League will look a little bit different next season.
Along with the game-changing introduction of VAR, Prem chiefs are set to introduce seven new rule changes from 2019-20.
PA:Press Association A number of new rules will be introduced to the Premier League next season[/caption]
RULE ONE – Substitutions
To prevent time-wasting, players will now have to leave the pitch at the nearest point.
Previously, players would have to walk to the half-way line and swap with the incoming player.
Now, rather than having to cross the pitch or make their way back to the dug-out, players will go off at the closest sideline.
Left-backs on the left side, for example.
Reuters Substitutes will no longer have to walk to the dugout to come off the pitch, instead leaving at the nearest sideline[/caption]
RULE TWO – Defensive wall
If there are more than three players in a defensive wall (so pretty much every free-kick that will be a shot at goal) attackers are not allowed within one yard of the wall.
This rule change will put an end to the pushing, shoving, pulling and tugging that causes aggravation for pretty much every referee.
In every wall since time immemorial, fouls have been committed in the wall and have gone unpunished.
In practice, it will be interesting to see how referees will enforce attacking players staying one yard away from the defensive wall.
Reuters Next season the two Southampton players would not be allowed to stand so close to the Man Utd defensive wall[/caption]
RULE THREE – Drop balls
Drop balls are now a thing of history, they are gone from next season.
This rule is certainly bound to cause a bit of controversy.
Instead of a drop ball, the last team to touch the ball will get possession.
Whether that team decides to give the ball back to the other side remains to be seen.
Another development is that if play is stopped with the ball in the penalty area, it will restart with the goalkeeper.
That’s certain to cause some upset for fans.
RULE FOUR – Penalties
This one sounds like it’s going to be very hard to enforce – although we can certainly see Mike Dean ordering a penalty to be retaken four times to get it right..
As part of a crackdown on gamesmanship, goalkeepers can’t touch the frame, have to have one boot touching the line and can’t stand behind the line.
Keepers are also not allowed to feign movement one way in an attempt to bluff the taker.
But how much movement will be allowed? Can a keeper lean one way and dive the other?
This will be a work in progress.
News Group Newspapers Ltd A raft of new rules being introduced to crack down on gamesmanship by goalkeepers facing penalties[/caption]
RULE FIVE – Goal-kicks
This is a massive change and one that should speed up the game massively.
Up to this point, a goal-kick was not in play until it left the area.
So the ball was dead until it left the 18-yard box – if a defender touched it, it was an indirect free-kick, if an attacker touched it the goalkeeper would get the decision.
But now, the ball is in play from the moment it is touched.
This is to counter the high press – defenders will be able to collect the ball inside the area, before the defending team has set and move the ball quickly into midfield.
RULE SIX – Accidental handball
Tottenham may not have made the Champions League final if this rule existed this season.
From next year any goal scored from the arm – accidental or deliberate – will not count.
If the ball touches an attacking player’s arm in the build-up to a goal – accidental or not – the goal will not count.
Although Fernando Llorente’s goal at the Etihad counted this season, because although the ball touched his arm it was not deliberate, now the fact it has touched his arm is enough to disallow it.
There’s a big but here – this rule does not apply to defenders in their own box.
So a referee, or VAR, will still judge whether a handball was deliberate or not.MOST READ IN FOOTBALL SOL SEARCHING Get the latest updates from Old Trafford as Ole plots summer overhaul CILL-ED THE DEAL Man Utd target Cillessen agrees Benfica move as Barca hold out for £22m MAGIC OF THE CUP ITV snatch FA Cup rights from BT Sport making tournament free-to-air again PHENIX BAN Former Southport star Phenix banned for four years after failed drugs test HELPING HEND Man Utd can replace De Gea with Henderson as stats show he had better season 'no words' Lingard slammed for using Manchester bombing tribute to promote JLingz brand NOT A LONGSHOT Man Utd shock transfer target Sean Longstaff is exactly what Ole needs OUTFOXED Leicester shock favourites to sign Robben aged 35 after he leaves Bayern Munich
RULE SEVEN – Celebrations
This rule is a direct result of VAR.
A player is currently booked for any over-exuberant celebrations, jumping into the crowd or taking a shirt off and so on.
Now imagine a player scores, celebrates in that fashion and VAR chalks the goal off.
The celebrating player will still be booked even if the goal has been disallowed.

CHELSEA remain in turmoil over their plans for next season.
The Blues still don’t know if they will be banned from buying players in the summer and may have to rely on their current squad being bolstered by youth players and those returning from loan spells.How a Chelsea XI made up solely of players who went on loan last season could look
Fortunately for the Blues, they sent out a whopping 41 players on loan this season.
And although Maurizio Sarri said last month that only “two or three” are good enough for the Chelsea first-team, we disagree.
With the Italian also linked with Juventus, and sensationally threatening to quit if his future depends on a Europa League win, Chelsea have about as much uncertainty around them as any Premier League club.
Blues legend Frank Lampard continues to be linked with the job after guiding Derby County to the brink of the Premier League in his first season in charge.
And another club icon, Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, reckons Lampard would be a better choice than Sarri if the club are banned, given his willingness to play the kids and assistant boss Jody Morris’ expert knowledge of them.
Morris managed the Academy side for four years before joining Lampard in the East Midlands.
Should Chelsea stay banned, they will have no choice but to play some of these players.
We look at an XI of loan stars who could suit up in Blue next season.Chelsea legend Frank Lampard (left) continues to be linked as a replacement for Maurizio Sarri
GK: Nathan Baxter (20 years old)
The Blues Academy has always struggled to produce goalkeepers over the years and it looks unlikely that a first-team stopper will emerge in the near future.
Chelsea have a couple of options for this position, but neither would feel a manager with any confidence – there’s a reason Willy Caballero (age 37) and Rob Green (39) are the No 2 and No 3 after Kepa Arrizabalaga.
Nathan Baxter and Bradley Collins have both enjoyed good seasons in the Football League this season, but with major caveats.
Baxter, 20, was named Yeovil Town’s Player of the Year after an impressive individual campaign.
Collins, 22, started the season as the Burton Albion No3 before a string of impressive performances saw him keep the job over West Ham keeper Stephen Bywater and Bulgarian Dimitar Evtimov.
However, the Glovers were relegated from League Two after finishing bottom.
Collins, though, is an undersized 6ft so we’ve plumped for Baxter, who is two years younger and three inches taller.Chelsea loanee Nathan Baxter (right) was named Yeovil Town’s Player of the Year
RB: Reece James (19)
This is a no-brainer.
If Maurizio Sarri remains at the club, and if he has any sense, James, 19, will be Cesar Azpilicueta’s back-up next season.
But those are two massive ifs.
Plenty of ink has been spilled on James already.
He won the Wigan Athletic Player of the Season and was named in the Championship Team of the Year.
The teenager is a rare blend of pace, power and excellent technique – as shown by his impressive stint as a central midfielder earlier this season.
James, who has shown a calm head on his shoulders, is also a threat from set-pieces and to add a couple of goals every season.
He was rarely beaten in defence and looked a level above many of his opponents last season.
Chelsea, who have had James training with the first-team since Wigan’s season ended, have to keep him.
AFP or licensors Reece James, who has been training with the Chelsea squad in recent weeks, won Wigan’s Player of the Year and was named in the Championship Team of the Season[/caption]
CB: Fikayo Tomori (21)
Three players into this team and a third player who was named his loan club’s Player of the Year.
The centre-back impressed for Frank Lampard’s Derby County, forming a rock-solid partnership with Richard Keogh at the heart of the defence.
Tomori is lightning quick, confident on the ball and a very good reader of the game.
He has the ability to play Premier League football now and next season.
There is but one question mark over his long-term potential to be a truly great defender – his height.
Tomori may be stout and rapid, but standing at 6ft 1in puts him at a bit of a disadvantage in the modern Prem.
None of the league’s top central defenders are shorter than 6ft 2in, with the most commanding standing much taller than that.
At Derby, his height didn’t matter as captain Keogh lives for aerial battles.
If Tomori was partnered with a commanding centre-back he would thrive, but it will be a question mark in the immediate future.
Luckily for Tomori, this theoretical team has the perfect partner…Fikayo Tomori had a great season in the heart of the Derby defence and was named their Player of the SeasonGetty Images - Getty
CB: Kurt Zouma (24)
…Defenders don’t come much bigger than the Frenchman, who had enjoyed a renaissance at Everton.
Standing 6ft 3in and a muscular 15 stone, few players get the better of Zouma in aerial battles and one on one duels.
Zouma was signed by the Toffees to provide back-up and competition to Michael Keane and Yerry Mina – a pair of defenders who cost a combined £50m.
He started the season down the pecking order but eventually become arguably the club’s most reliable defender, leading the club with 1.7 interceptions per game and 3.9 clearances.
Reuters Powerful centre-back Kurt Zouma had a renaissance year on loan at Everton[/caption]
LB: Jay Dasilva (21)
The impish left-back grew as the season went on but has a long way left to go in his development.
He was decidedly second-choice to Lloyd Kelly, who is now on his way to Bournemouth, but had a decent season both offensively and defensively.
Dasilva is confident on the ball, a good crosser and also more than quick enough to deal with all but the fastest of wingers.
His big weakness is his height, which saw him targeted with diagonal balls by some Championship clubs.
The former Luton Town youngster has won Aidy Boothroyd’s trust to be the regular starter over Kelly for England Under-21s.
He is also versatile enough to play further forward as a wing-back or on the left side of midfield.
Baba Rahman, 24, never impressed for the Blues and didn’t do much to advance his standing in two loan spells this season.
He played only four games for Schalke in the first half of the season, before being sent back to London.
Rahman spent the second half of the season on loan at Reims, but did little to suggest he could make the level required at Stamford Bridge.
News Group Newspapers Ltd Jay Dasilva, who spent the season at Bristol City, is very raw but has great potential and is very versatile[/caption]
DM: Trevoh Chalobah (19)
Ipswich Town were relegated after a dreadful season, but Chalobah was one of the few bright sparks.
He arrived at Portman Road as a centre-back without a senior appearance to his name.
By the end of the campaign, Chalobah was one of the first names on the team sheet and playing further forward.
Playing in front of the back four or as a more traditional central midfielder, the lanky Chalobah reads the game well, loves driving the ball forward and has a long range of passing.
But the 19-year-old, who has trained with Sarri’s squad in the last couple of weeks, was still very raw in some parts of his game.
Like any teenager playing at a high level, there were some bad lapses in concentration, risky passes and panic-inducing decisions.
He also needs to do more with his impressive physical gifts – there have been complaints the 6ft 3in Chalobah does not play with enough aggression, instead looking to keep it neat and tidy.
AFP or licensors Trevoh Chalobah is a raw defensive midfielder, but at just 19 has bags of potential[/caption]
CM: Tiemoue Bakayoko (24)
After a truly horrendous first season with Chelsea, Bakayoko was shipped out to AC Milan.
Not much thought was given to the former Monaco man, with most believing his time at Stamford Bridge was finished.
But then Bakayoko started impressing for the Rossoneri and a return to the Blues looked slightly more likely.
At his best, the French star can be a diet version of Patrick Vieira, able to drive the ball forward from midfield, find an open man and put in a crunching tackle.
He showed none of that at Chelsea but became one of Milan’s best players by grabbing the team from the collar of the neck.
And then it all went wrong.
It looked like Milan would try and make the move permanent, but Bakayoko fell out with manager Gennaro Gattuso and told him to “f*** off” after refusing to come off the substitutes’ bench.
Should Chelsea be unable to make signings this summer, the midfielder would be one of the few returning players with real European pedigree.
It’ll take a while for Chelsea fans to be won over, but Bakayoko does have the talent hidden in there somewhere.
EPA Tiemoue Bakayoko has had an excellent season at AC Milan but fell out with Gennaro Gattuso[/caption]
CM: Mason Mount (20)
The jewel in the Academy crown, Mount has been hyped for years and has so far lived up to all expectations.
His preferred position is as a No 10 but Lampard has dropped Mount into a central midfield role and the player responded with an excellent seasons.
The long-range shooting and eye for a killer pass are elite – 11 goals and four assists a good return for the low-scoring Rams.
It’s his effort on the defensive side and effortlessness on the ball that has really caught the eye.
Mount isn’t a particularly powerful athlete but has a brilliant engine and the desire to never stop working.
On the ball, no situation or amount of defensive pressure is enough to unnerve him.
Mount is carefree driving forward and always seems to pick the right pass.
He’s proved himself to be a man for the big moment as well, scoring a crucial goal in that thrilling play-off win against Leeds last week.
Rex Features Mason Mount is the jewel in the Chelsea academy crown and has had a brilliant season under Frank Lampard at Derby[/caption]
RW: Christian Pulisic (20)
The American may have been outshone by the emergence of starlet Jadon Sancho, but there is more than enough talent here to have Blues fans very excited.
His £60m price-tag was a bit of an overspend – although the Blues will definitely earn some of that back with his marketing potential in North America.
He burst on to the scene as a youngster and while he his development has stalled over injury, Pulisic is a massive attacking threat.
Quick, comfortable on both feet and with an eye for goal, the former Dortmund star could grab double figure goals for the Blues next season if he adapts quickly.
There’s still a question over what position Pulisic should be played in. He tends to play more centrally for the US national team, where he has shown his best form.
It may not matter too much in west London – both he and Callum Hudson-Odoi are more than capable playing either side and could potentially switch sides and give opposing defences plenty to think about.
Getty - Contributor Christian Pulisic was bought for £58million in January and will play a massive part for Chelsea next season[/caption]
LW: Kenedy (23)
By the process of elimination, Kenedy has ended up in this team.
But in reality, the Brazilian doesn’t have much of a future at Stamford Bridge.
In his younger days the Blues experimented with making him a left-back, but he failed to settle into the work and struggled every time he was played there.
Then there was the racist incident on the pre-season tour of China.
A fresh start at Newcastle should have allowed Kenedy plenty of game time and the chance to refine his skills as an attacking threat.
But the Brazilian was poor, starting only 14 games and scoring one goal before Newcastle decided to end his loan early and not take up the option to sign him permanently.
Already 23, Kenedy is far from the quality Chelsea need if they are to get back to the challenging for the Premier League title and taking on Europe’s elite in the Champions League.
But Chelsea’s other on-loan wingers are either too young (Jacob Maddox), too defensive (Ola Aina) or not good enough (Charly Musonda, Lucas Piazon and Nathan).
PA:Press Association Kenedy flopped during his loan spell at Newcastle United[/caption]
ST: Tammy Abraham (21)
The striker could not have done anything more at Aston Villa this season to impress his parent club.
Abraham scored 26 goals to fire Dean Smith’s club to the Championship play-off final.
He stands at an imposing 6ft 3in, is quick and powerful, with excellent movement in front of goal.
His key strength, though, is that when he gets that chance, Abraham has the composure to stick the ball in the net.
Just see his cool winning penalty in the play-off semi-final shootout at West Brom.
Should Villa get promotion, they will be desperate to sign him permanently – should they not, other teams will be queuing out the door.
But Chelsea have to hold firm, and look like they will, however tempting cashing in may be, and give Abraham a proper run in the team.
If the Blues get a transfer ban there will be no big-money signing arriving to bang in the goals.
Gonzalo Higuain, 31, may yet be able to sign even if the club are banned, but the Argentine has struggled to adapt to English football in his four months at Stamford Bridge, scoring just five goals in 18 games.MOST READ IN FOOTBALL SOL SEARCHING Get the latest updates from Old Trafford as Ole plots summer overhaul BLUES NEWS Keep up to date with all the ins and outs from Stamford Bridge GUNNER sign?

Olivier Giroud, 32, has just signed a new contract extension and to casual observers is a better option than Higuain.
The Frenchman is sorely lacking pace but clearly makes his team-mates better, and has added 12 goals and eight assists in all competitions.
But he’s not going to fire any team to a title and that’s why Abraham should be given a chance: potential.
Abraham is very raw, his touch lacks polish and he can drift in and out of games.
But any striker with his blend of size and speed stands a chance to be a Premier League striker – and 26 goals at any level is a very impressive feat.

BRITAIN’S first 5G networks are about to be switch on – but you’ll need a 5G blower to enjoy the superfast speeds.
We’ve rounded up the best 5G phones you can buy in the UK today (spoiler: there aren’t many).EE is targeting 16 cities across the UK with 5G internet in 2019What is 5G? A quick guide
The term 5G stands for 5th-generation, and is simply the next “version” of mobile phone networks.
The world’s network operators have settled on a new method of delivering mobile internet to your phone, making it possible to offer far higher download speeds.
Early figures suggest you’ll be able to download 4K movies in a matter of seconds, and buffering video will be a thing of the past.
But 5G also promises low “latency” – the physical delay in transmitting data – which is a major boon for gamers, who desperately need their online actions to be sent and received as quickly as possible.EE says the first 1,500 sites being upgraded to 5G in 2019 carry 25% of all data across the whole network, but only cover 15% of the UK populationWhat do you need for 5G?
The first thing you need is a 5G network, and those are in short supply.
EE is first across the line with plans to launch a 5G network on May 30 – but only in six cities.
If you’re outside of London, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Belfast, Birmingham or Manchester then you’re out of luck.
The good news is that EE plans to roll out 5G in a further 10 cities by the end of 2019: Glasgow, Newcastle, Liverpool, Leeds, Hull, Sheffield, Nottingham, Leicester, Coventry and Bristol.
Vodafone has also committed to switching on 5G in seven cities: Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Glasgow, Manchester, Liverpool, and London.
Other networks have been quieter on 5G, including big names like O2 and Three – neither of which has a firm start date.The Samsung Galaxy S10 5G Edition is one of the first 5G smartphonesAFP or licensorsThe OnePlus 7 Pro 5G is a formidable 5G blower available in the UK from the end of MayAFP or licensors
The bad news is that signing up to a 5G network isn’t enough.
You’ll need a 5G-ready phone, which aren’t particularly common yet. The phone you own right now almost certainly isn’t 5G-ready.
Inside smartphones are tiny chips called modems, which allow the handset to connect to mobile internet.
These modems need to be redesigned to support 5G networks, and right now there are only a few modems that do the job.
More 5G modems will be created over time, which we’ll update this page with soon.Samsung’s foldable Galaxy Fold supports 5G, but there’s no firm release date just yetPA:Press Association5G phones 2019 revealed – all the models you need to know

These 5G smartphones will be expensive initially, but the price will drop over time – just like with the launch of 4G.
Apple has been very quiet on 5G, but rumours suggest the first 5G iPhone will arrive in 2020/2021.5G internet – what is it?
Here’s what you need to know...5G is the next generation of mobile phone networks Just like 4G made your mobile internet faster and more reliable compared to 3G, 5G will do the same again Phone networks across the UK are currently scrambling to introduce 5G phone speeds for Brits Typical 4G speeds today will typically fall between 50Mbps and 100Mbps But early 5G speeds will raise this bar to several hundred megabits-per-second And once 5G networks are advanced, you’ll expect to enjoy gigabit-per-second speeds However, you’ll need to upgrade your phone plan to a 5G tariff Also, not all smartphones support 5G internet – they’ll need to have a 5G-ready modem inside We’re only now starting to see 5G smartphones in 2019, so older phones won’t support the new speeds Many top phone makers have committed to making (or already launched) 5G-ready smartphones These include Samsung, Huawei, OnePlus, LG and Oppo How much will a 5G phone contract cost?
The only official pricing we have right now is from EE.
For a SIM-only plan, you’re looking at 20GB of data for £32 a month.
That would normally cost you £22 a month on 4G, so there’s a price hike of around £10.
If you want 100GB of data, you’ll pay a far higher £52 a month.
To get a 5G contract with a phone wrapped into the price, you’re looking at a minimum of £54 a month for 10GB of data.
This rises right up to £74 a month for 120GB of data.
Anyone looking to buy the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G will have to pay £79 a month minimum, for 30GB of data each month.MOST READ IN TECH DEADLY DEVICES The 5 ways iPhones have killed people & left blood pouring from their ears HOUSE PARTY The Sims 4 is free to download and keep FOREVER - but you have to act fast i-SPY I thought I was paranoid, but now I'm 100 per cent sure our phones listen to us shame remains Wreck of last slave ship that illegally ferried 100s from Africa to US found SPACE NEIGHBOURS Nasa finds 18 hidden 'Earth-sized planets' lurking near our Solar System KILLER'S HANDBOOK Diary of UK's most notorious HANGMAN who executed 200 Nazis up at auction

In the footage he can be seen struggling to stand back up as onlookers can be heard saying “oh no he’s tired”.
The baby rolls on the ground as the mercury tipped 40C before standing up and scampering away to keep up with the adult leading the elephant herd at the Nong Nooch Tropical Gardens.
A concerned tourist filmed the distressing scene and said the baby elephant appeared exhausted after walking around in the heat.
She refused to be named but said: “There are many more baby elephants tied with their mother walking around with tourists at their backs enjoying under the heat of the sun while these elephants are suffering.
“This one baby elephant was so exhausted, and you can see the mother comforting and encouraging her to stand.”
The tourist is a Filipino migrant worker in Thailand’s neighbouring country Myanmar where she is a teacher.DISTRESSING SCENES
She was on holiday with friends when she filmed the troubling footage.
A spokesman for the Nong Nooch Tropical Gardens today denied the elephant was tired or being mistreated.
They said: “All of the elephants are healthy and treated very well.
“If there is a problem they are treated by vets. All of the babies here are healthy.”

CHLOE Ferry exploded in rage at Sam Gowland and told him they’re over for good after he spent the night with a Love Island star.
Yesterday The Sun exclusively revealed how the Geordie Shore star had romped with the lady in question after partying in London just days after his split with Chloe.The couple looked tense while on holiday in MajorcaThe Mega Agency
But after Chloe found out about Sam’s tryst with the Love Island babe, she unleashed her rage and ended things for good.
An insider exclusively told The Sun Online: “She’s devastated because she feels like she has been taken for a massive fool.
“Chloe told him it’s over forever, she will never take him back now.”Chloe was left devastated by the revelation Sam had slept with a Love Island babeSplash News
They added: “Chloe had been in two minds about Sam and he’s been begging and pleading with her to get back with him.
“She’s had to see him because they’ve had this paid PA to do and she didn’t want to lose the cash.
“Chloe has been trying to ignore him but Sam is persistent and she did really love him.

“She was absolutely furious and was seething with him.”Chloe announced their split earlier this monthInstagramChloe has put on a brave face while in Majorca with Sam for a PA gigInstagram
The pair were pictured looking tense while sitting together around their hotel pool, and Chloe, 23, also tweeted about how she “didn’t know him at all” after the bombshell revelation.
The insider continued: “Chloe said she understood now why he spent so long in London when he was just going there for a charity football game.
“He is begging with her to not believe it but she knows it’s true and she’s told him as much.

A BIZARRE new rule could see goalkeepers play in an outfield position next season.
But it will only be implicated to all non-league football from the fourth step downwards.David James once shocked everyone by having a stint outfieldGetty Images - Getty
It comes after sin bins were introduced meaning players will be forced to sit on the touchline for 10 minutes if they receive a yellow card.
After the allotted time is up, the player can then head back onto the field of play.
But the rule is slightly different for keepers.
If the No1 is shown a yellow, he will be replaced by an outfield player who will pull on a pair of gloves.LIKE 5-A-SIDE
Once the 10 minutes are up, the keeper must re-enter the field as an outfield player until there is a stoppage in play enabling him to change position.
The sin bin initiative was trialled last season in step seven and below of the non-league.
It has been suggested by the BBC that it reduced dissent towards referees in matches by 38 per cent.
This could lead to chaos!
Sin Bins are being introduced to all #nonleague football below Step 4 next season.
Look how the rule applies to goalkeepers!pic.twitter.com/LH9T5duoas

But it still seems a long way to go until we see a Premier League keeper try his luck as an outfield player.
In 2005, Man City boss Stuart Pearce thought he produced a tactical masterstroke by throwing ex-England stopper David James in attack.
Unsurprisingly he couldn’t find the back of the net in City’s 1-1 draw with Middlesbrough.
ALEKS ZINCHENKO hopes to sign a new Manchester City deal after establishing himself as the club’s first-choice left-back.
But he chose to stay and battle for his place under Pep Guardiola and has been rewarded with a clean sweep of domestic medals.
The bargain £1.7million signing said: “I want to take my game further, of course, and feel I’m ready.
“This is why I came here, this is why I am here and this is where I want to play in the future.
“We will see what happens with the contract. I hope we’ll get better and I want to be part of this.”
SunSport revealed earlier in the season that City are looking to tie him to a longer-term deal.
Zinchenko is likely to start next season as Guardiola’s No1 left-back owing to the continued injury problems of £49.3m signing Benjamin Mendy.most read in football SOL SEARCHING Get the latest updates from Old Trafford as Ole plots summer overhaul CILL-ED THE DEAL Man Utd target Cillessen agrees Benfica move as Barca hold out for £22m MAGIC OF THE CUP ITV snatch FA Cup rights from BT Sport making tournament free-to-air again ROCK N RULE Seven new radical rule changes coming into the Premier League next season PHENIX BAN Former Southport star Phenix banned for four years after failed drugs test HELPING HEND Man Utd can replace De Gea with Henderson as stats show he had better season 'no words' Lingard slammed for using Manchester bombing tribute to promote JLingz brand NOT A LONGSHOT Man Utd shock transfer target Sean Longstaff is exactly what Ole needs OUTFOXED Leicester shock favourites to sign Robben aged 35 after he leaves Bayern Munich AND SHAKE Sheringham and Cole end 20-year feud as Man Utd icons shake hands in club

Zinchenko told Sport360: “It was a good record and I hope I’m a lucky charm. I hope to keep it going next season.

A COUPLE have been left “devastated and embarrassed” after winning a dream wedding worth £15,000 in a competition – only to be told there had been a mistake.
Furious Arlene Keir and Andrew Hutchison, both 39, bagged the wedding of a lifetime in a radio contest last weekend.
As part of the prize, the couple were gifted a big day at the Doubletree Hilton North Queensferry, Scotland, along with wedding cars, kilts and jewellery.
But just 20 minutes later their celebrations were cut short when producers at Kingdom FM ushered them into a room with another couple to confess there had been a mistake.
Arlene and Andrew had wrongly been announced as the winners and instead were actually the runners up.
In a bid to fix the problem, the couple said they were offered an overnight stay at the hotel and £1,000 spending money – two days later after the horrible mix-up.
Mum-of-two Arlene, from Dunfermline, said: “We were over the moon at first.
“We literally thought we had won and we also got our champagne.‘WE ARE UTTERLY EMBARRASSED AND DEVASTATED’
“Then 20 minutes later we got put into a different room.
“I just thought we were going to get interviewed or something.
“But when we walked in we saw the other couple and the girl just pointed at the board and said the other couple were the winners.
“It has caused a lot of devastation to the whole family.
“My six-year-old boy said to me that his mummy and daddy are not allowed to get married anymore.
“We are utterly embarrassed and devastated.
“I feel I have had the ground ripped from underneath us.
“It is embarrassing and they have not announced they have made this mistake.
“The companies that have donated the prizes have still not been told anything from Kingdom FM.
“I feel as if I am having a nightmare that someone will wake me up from.
“The other couple was so apologetic but we said to them it’s not their fault.”
My six-year-old boy said to me that his mummy and daddy are not allowed to get married anymore.Devastated mum-of-two Arlene Keir
Arlene and Andrew, an industrial painter, were nominated by a close pal to take part in the competition to win the £15k wedding.
A tiebreak quiz saw two couples asked how much the Queensferry Crossing cost to build.
Arlene and Andrew were crowned the winners after having the closest guess, but they were then pulled into a room and told there was a mix-up and they hadn’t in fact won.
Arlene, who works as a customer service advisor, said: “After the complete disaster, the sales director said he had to speak to his managing director who later said it was a miscalculation and a human error.
“They said there was nothing they could do but to give us an overnight stay at the hotel and £1,000 spending money.
“But we have not accepted it, it’s more the principle.
“How can they let us believe we won for 20 minutes then take it away from us like that.
“I just feel like they have not given us a proper apology and they have not told the other sponsors that we are not the real winners yet.
“We’ve ended up having to tell some of them.”
The pair, who have children Kai, six, and Ava, 21-months, have been engaged for nine years, but have never been able to afford their dream day.
Following the devastating mix-up, friends launched a fundraising bid for the couple, in the hope they can still tie the knot.

PIPPA Middleton’s millionaire father-in-law is still being investigated by cops 14 months after he was arrested over claims he raped a 15-year-old girl.
David Matthews, 75, was accused of raping the teen on the exclusive French island of St Barts where he owns a £5,000-a-night hotel in the 1990s.The investigation against James Matthews is still ongoingGetty - ContributorDave Matthews, on the right, was quizzed on two counts of rape of a minor
He was seized by cops from France’s child protection unit at Paris Orly Airport last March and taken to court after 48 hours in custody charged with raping a minor.
The probe into the allegations was due to last for six months but judicial sources confirmed to Mail Online that detectives are continuing to investigate.
Details of the criminal probe, which is being carried out by officers from France’s Brigade for the Protection of Minors, are being withheld due to the country’s strict secrecy laws.
The swoop came as Mr Matthews arrived in Paris on his way to the South of France last March.
One of the alleged offences is said to have taken place in 1998 on St Barts where the girl alleges she was groomed and assaulted when she had just turned 15.‘I FELT WORTHLESS’
The other alleged attack is said to have taken place in Paris the following year when Mr Matthews is said to have raped her.
She reportedly told French police: “Afterwards I felt like I was to blame.
“I developed feelings of self-loathing and felt worthless.”
The following month, a second woman told cops the hotel owner raped her in the UK in the 1980s.
Mr Matthews, a self-made millionaire, owns the Eden Rock hotel on St Barts and moved to the island in 1995 with wife Jane, 71.
Pippa and hedge fund manager hubby James have been regular visitors and first met there in 2006 before they started dating regularly in 2014.
Her sister Kate Middleton has also stayed at the hotel.

The gang is said to have gotten away with £14million worth of jewellery and cash in a daring raid on a safe deposit vault in Hatton Garden in April 2015.
The police though were quickly on their trail. Here’s what happened to those who took part.Diamond wheezers… John Collins, Daniel Jones, Terry Perkins, (bottom row left to right) Carl Wood, William Lincoln and Hugh DoylePA:Press AssociationWhere are the Hatton Garden robbers?
Most of the gang, who had become known as the “diamond wheezers” due to their average age being 63, were put on trial in 2016.
Michael SeedSeed was sentenced to ten years in prison for his part in the Hatton Garden job
Seed, 58, is thought to have been the ringleader of the gang and simply known as ‘Basil’ by the others.
He managed to evade being caught for three years despite living in a council house in Islington, less than two miles away from the robbery.
Seed was eventually caught in 2018.
Police are believed to have identified Seed in November 2015 but waited until March 2018 to arrest him when they could catch him red-handed.
He became the tenth person to be convicted in connection with the heist in March 2019 when he was sentenced to ten years in prison.
Peter Jordan - The Sun The 79-year-old was released from Belmarsh prison in London last week[/caption]
Known as ‘The Master’ Reader leaded guilty to conspiring to commit burglary and was locked up for six years and three months for his part.
The 79-year-old was released in July 2018 after serving just over three years.
He was released with remission having suffered from prostate cancer and a series of strokes.
He has since been enjoying the summer sunshine in the garden of his home in Dartford, Kent, alongside relatives and friends.
Reader had faced a further seven-year term if he could not pay a £6.5million confiscation order imposed on him and three other ringleaders.
Due to his health, Reader received a sentence seven months shorter than his fellow Hatton Garden ringleaders.
Last year he appeared in court in a wheelchair for a confiscation hearing — and he still walks aided by sticks.
The 79-year-old was known as Kenny and sentenced to seven years for his part in the raid.
He was released in late 2018 having served half his sentence.
Collins was spotted arriving at his home in Islington, north London after a trip to the supermarket.
He served as the lookout and getaway driver for the gang.
Collins was described in court as “instrumental in gaining access to the vault”, visiting the area many times to assess its weaknesses. He also purchased the extra equipment needed to drill through the wall of the vault.
Some of the gold stolen from the London heist was even hidden in his wheelie bins.
Collins was in part responsible for the gang being caught after driving his own Mercedes to the heist and being tailed by police.
His £175,000 flat on the Costa del Sol in Spain has been seized by police, who also froze nearly £700,000 in his bank accounts.
Daniel JonesDanny Jones, 59, have pleaded guilty to the infamous Hatton Garden heistCentral News
Jones, 63 from Enfield, was jailed for seven years for his part in the Hatton Garden raid.
He climbed through the hole bored in the wall with Basil to break into the boxes.
While in custody, awaiting trial, Jones claimed he wanted to “come clean” and give back his share of the robbery. To that end he wrote a letter to the media offering to show police where he had hidden it.
But when he was escorted to Edmonton Cemetery, in north London, he only showed them a small portion of his stash and lied under direct questioning when asked if he knew about any more loot buried about 20m (65ft) away, which the police had already found.
But the criminal was handed a three year sentence on top in July 2018 having taken part in a £1m gem heist at Amal Clooney’s wedding jewellers.
Jones stole about £1m worth of jewellery, gems and watches from the Old Bond Street shop’s display cabinets, as well as £45,000 in cash.
The family-owned firm, which owns a collection of rare and expensive gems and is popular with the world’s rich and famous, was burgled over the 2010 summer bank holiday weekend, between 27 and 31 August.
Terry PerkinsHatton Garden lag Terry Perkins has died behind bars
Died in prison in February 2018 of natural causes, aged 69.
He died just one week after being ordered to repay around £6.5m in missing cash.
A Prison Service spokesperson confirmed Perkins died in custody at HMP Belmarsh.
He suffered from diabetes and heart problems.
Perkins suffered a heart attack in Belmarsh Prison and was fitted with a defibrillator – a pacemaker which monitors heart beats – at London’s St Thomas’ Hospital.
Wood, 58 from Cheshunt, was handed a six year prison sentence for his part.
He suffers from Crohn’s disease and lives on disability allowance.
He is thought to have become involved in the job as he was £8,890 in debt.
Wood pulled out of the heist on the second night when he found the fire escape door was closed.
His friend Jones subsequently refused to give him any of the spoils to help clear his debts and no loot was found at his house.
Wood was arrested on 19 May 2015.
Lincoln, 60, who was known as ‘Billy the Fish’ was given a seven year stretch.
He acted at the gang’s getaway driver.
Lincoln got his nickname because he used to visit Billingsgate Fish Market on Fridays.
He was arrested on 19 May 2015 driving his black Audi A3.
The arresting officers found a torn up, handwritten note on the floor beside him.
The writing on the note gave the address of the Wheatsheaf pub, where some of the loot was handled.Holes bored through a half-metre thick concrete wall drilled to access a vault in a safe deposit centre in Hatton GardenAFP most read in UK news CHILLING SLIP Maxine Carr caught over Soham murders thanks to key mistake in TV interview CARE SICKOS Smirking care home staff attack autistic patient & use 'psychological torture' 'not knowing is torture' Dad of vanished teen sometimes 'envies parents of murdered kids' 'I LAUGHED AT HIM' Ex-Para Brexit voter, 81, mocks childish yob who threw milkshake at him 'child abuse' I was 'unteachable' & kicked out to improve exam results, like 49,000 others FROZEN IN TIME Time capsule room of missing boy who 'may have been killed by paedo' in 1988
The 50-year-old gas fitter was found guilty of conspiracy to conceal, convert or transfer criminal property and given a suspended prison sentence.
There was no evidence he ever went to Hatton Garden.
His role was to provide an exchange point for the final handover of loot outside his business premises.
The 42-year-old was cleared of all charges.
GABOR KIRALY has hung up his sweatpants – literally – after retiring from football at the age of 43.
The Hungarian goalkeeper was a fan favourite for his unusual attire during spells with Crystal Palace, Burnley and Fulham.Kiraly says he opted for the sweatpants for comfort reasonsEPA
On Thursday, Kiraly confirmed the end of a 25-year career that began in 1993 with hometown club Szombathelyi Haladas, who he later rejoined at the end of his career.
His big break came in 1997 when moving to Hertha Berlin, as the second-choice keeper at first before breaking through and even appearing in the Champions League for the German club.
A move to Crystal Palace followed for English football fans’ first glimpse of his grey tracksuit bottoms, and he rapidly became a cult hero.
Stints on the bench at West Ham United, Aston Villa and Bayer Leverkusen came alongside a two-year spell at Burnley.
I fought with honour, I always wanted to reach the top and I adapted myself to every mission humbly.Kiraly on his career
It was back in Germany that Kiraly again found regular first-team action, in the second-tier with 1860 Munich.
A brief return to England saw the sweatpants back in the Championship with Fulham in 2014 before he saw out his playing days in Hungary.
On the international scene, the goalkeeper earned 108 caps for the Hungarian national team, retiring after featuring at Euro 2016.
Writing on his website alongside a video of him hanging up his trackies, Kiraly told fans: “I thank football for teaching me everything and for making me a better person.Most Read FOotball News SOL SEARCHING Get the latest updates from Old Trafford as Ole plots summer overhaul BLUES NEWS Keep up to date with all the ins and outs from Stamford Bridge GUNNER sign?

Chris Evans and his Virgin Radio Breakfast team plan to party all night in Monaco and not sleep before going on air tomorrow.
The 53-year-old is planning to make the most of his time in the South of France as he hosts his breakfast show there today and tomorrow to celebrate the launch of Riviera season 2 on Sky Atlantic.Chris Evans and his Virgin radio team – Vassos Alexander and Rachel Horne are partying tonightInstagram
Chris jetted out with this team from the show, which is sponsored by Sky, including sports reporter Vassos Alexander and news and travel reporter Rachel Horne – who are just as excited about hitting the town.
Discussing their plans, he revealed their boss had told them to be sensible on the first night.
Chris said: “He said if the show was half decent today then he would let us a bit further off the leash. So I think we are good to go tonight.
“So tomorrow’s show is going to be very interesting.
“Listeners text us – would you be disappointed if we are hanging tomorrow live on the radio?”Chris is hosting the show live from Monaco today and tomorrowGetty Images - Getty
Vassos added: “Would you like us not to go to sleep between now and 6.30am tomorrow morning when we are back on air?”
It’s not the first time Chris has pulled an all nighter – he was up all night in September of last year to ‘wet the babies’ heads’ following the birth of his twins Walt and Boo.
Chris revealed he had a very heavy night and ended up falling asleep on the sofa shortly before he had to get up and get to work.
Riviera stars Julia Stiles – who was a recent guest on Chris’s show – as Georgina Clios, a widow after her rich French billionaire husband dies in a yacht explosion.
And while the first series saw Georgina try and get to the bottom of her husband’s death and why he died, this season will see her try and hide a dark secret of her own.
Julia is returning to the show for series two, alongside new cast members Will Arnett, Juliet Stevenson, Poppy Delevingne and Jack Fox.
The actress recently left Chris shocked when she revealed that, despite the glamourous look of the TV show, she sometimes has to go to the loo in the woods.The cast of Riviera Season 2, which is released todayGetty - Contributor Most Read In TV & Showbiz baby joy Stacey Solomon gives birth early as she welcomes first child with Joe Swash CORRIE STAR DEAD Corrie and Butterflies actor Andrew Hall dies aged 65 after short illness NAT'S A LIE!

“By the way, this is a very glamorous show, however, I have done my hair and make-up in grip trucks,” she told him.
“We didn’t have enough room to put the trailers up – we travel a lot so we don’t have giant trucks as we can’t fit them in the winding streets of the South of France.”
She continued: “There was a scene we did driving a Ferrari up a beautiful coastline and we didn’t have any room…
“Sometimes people go to the loo in the woods, and sometimes they get hair and make-up done in a camera truck.”
Juliet, also appeared on Chris’ show this week and revealed that Prince Charles once asked her where her bikini was after confusing her with Pamela Anderson.

MOTORISTS could soon face a higher chance of being caught for common traffic offences.
The Transport Committee is calling for councils to be given more power to dish out fines for moving traffic violations as police resources are too stretched to enforce them.MPs want councils all over the UK to be given power to dish out fines for moving traffic offencesPeter Jordan - The Sun
In a recent report, MPs said councils should be able to fine drivers for offences such as stopping in yellow box junctions, driving the wrong way down a one-way street or failing to give way to oncoming traffic.
It said police no longer had the resources to enforce such rules and that the income from fines could be spent on buses to help to reduce congestion.
Under the Traffic Management Act 2004, councils can apply for powers to tackle parking, bus lane contraventions and moving traffic violations rather than police.
But despite parking and bus lane provisions being widely enforced by councils, few have taken charge of moving traffic violations outside of the English and Welsh capitals.YELLOW BOX JUNCTION FINE HOTSPOTS IN LONDON
Londoners were fined most for blocking these five yellow box junctions between 1 April 2017 and 31 March 2018:Wandsworth fire station exit on West Hill, SW18 – 16,707 PCNs issued Homerton fire station exit on Homerton High Street – 12,071 PCNs issued Hanger Lane / Ealing Village junction, W5 – 8,033 PCNs issued Euston Road / Judd Street / Midland Road junction – 5,595 PCNs issued Peckham High Street / Peckham bus station exit (east box) – 5,432 PCNs issued
London councils already use this power, with Transport for London dishing out fines of up to £130 for motorists blocking yellow box junctions.
If councils all over the UK started enforcing moving traffic law, motorists could see an increase in the number of fines handed out, as local authorities would have greater resources to cover their specific region.
The Transport Committee has called for the change to be implemented as soon as possible.
It said the revenue generated by fining law breakers could allow for better investment on measures to tackle congestion.
The RAC previously expressed concerns over councils handing out fines for moving traffic offences, claiming box junctions could be used as an excuse to raise revenue.
Simon Williams, RAC spokesperson, said: “Our research shows yellow box junctions are a very divisive issue with drivers.
“While the majority are in favour of councils more widely being allowed to use cameras to catch offenders, there is a strong feeling that many junctions are not set up fairly which leads to drivers having no choice but stop in them, whether that’s due to poor traffic light sequencing, poor design or being used in the wrong place.
“Box junctions can also heighten stress for drivers as those at the front of traffic lights often feel pressured to move on as a result of impatient drivers behind who don’t realise they are being prevented from doing so by the presence of yellow lines.the road laws you need to know STACK THE ODDS You could soon have more chance of being fined for common traffic offences FRIGHT VAN MAN Van drivers cause 10 injuries a WEEK by dangerously tailgating road users FLIPPING OUT How driving in flip flops could land you a £5,000 fine and NINE penalty points STUCK IN THE MIDDLE Hogging the middle lane could cost you a £100 fine and three points MOTORWAY KILLERS Brits with dangerous defective cars contribute to 32 FATAL crashes a year FLEE FEE How failing to stop after a car accident could land you a £5,000 fine
“If the Government was to grant local authorities the same powers that are already being used in London and Cardiff, it’s highly likely we would see a massive rise in the number of drivers being issued penalty charge notices.
“The RAC is generally supportive of local authorities having the power to enforce yellow box junctions because of the value of local knowledge, but has concerns that it could lead to local authorities being inconsistent in their application of road traffic law.
“There is also a risk that cash-strapped authorities may see it as a lucrative revenue stream.”
TRAVELLING with children when you’re a single parent, either due to divorce or bereavement, can be difficult.
Not only can it be stressful, but it can also raise the issue of proving whether you have permission to travel with the child.Single parents will need extra details if travelling with their kidsGetty - Contributor
At airports, single parents may be asked for proof that any children travelling with them are allowed out of the country through documents like consent letters.
Anyone travelling with a child that is not theirs, such as grandparents or family friends, will also need additional documents before travelling.
This is to clamp down on child abduction cases or child trafficking and the rules are enforced by immigration.
Here’s what you need to know…If you do have permission to travel with the child
The government website warns parents who are travelling without the other parent to get proof of permission.
They advise: “A letter from the person with parental responsibility for the child is usually enough to show you’ve got permission to take them abroad.
“You might be asked for the letter at a UK or foreign border, or if there’s a dispute about taking a child abroad.
“The letter should include the other person’s contact details and details about the trip.”
They explain that having evidence of the relationship with the child, such as a birth or adoption certificate, as well as a divorce or marriage certificate, can help – especially if there are different surnames.
While there is not an official form that needs to be taken, an example consent form to fill out and sign can be found on Mumsnet, which includes key details of the holiday as well as signatures of parents.If you don’t have permission
If one of the parents does not give their permission for the child to travel with you then you will need to request permission through the court.
The government website explains: “You’ll need to apply to a court for permission to take a child abroad if you haven’t got permission from the other people with parental responsibility.
“You must give details of the trip, e.g the date of departure, when and how you’re returning, and contact details of people with parental responsibility staying in the UK.CASE CLOSED Here are 11 ways to save space when packing your suitcase like a pro… and avoid it being too heavy
“You must give more information if you’re taking the child abroad for a longer trip, e.g. what education the child will get while they’re abroad.”
It also warns that taking a child abroad without permission is illegal and counts as child abduction.If you are not the parent of the child
Children travelling with family friends or grandparents will also need consent to take them out of the country.
Consent from both parents is required, if both still alive and in contact with the child.Most read in travel WHAT'S MY NAME What to do if your kids have a different surname when travelling abroad SUITE DREAMS Hard Rock’s new guitar-shaped hotel in Florida to have ten acre lagoon pool HOLIDAY HELL Brit holidaymakers flood Thomas Cook with booking fears after £1.5bn loss THOMAS SHOOK What are my rights if Thomas Cook goes bust after I've booked my holiday?

BRITS will battle Bank Holiday travel chaos this week with Friday the busiest day EVER for UK flights.
Severe traffic and rail closures will cause havoc for holidaymakers with a predicted 22 million trips planned between Monday and Friday.Brits will be hit by travel chaos this Bank Holiday WeekendGetty - Contributor
This is eight million more than the late May bank holiday weekend last year and is the most since the RAC began asking drivers about their bank holiday travel plans.BUSIEST DAY FOR FLIGHTS
Meanwhile NATS, the air-traffic provider, believes the current record of 8,854 movements a day will be broken on Friday.
The current record was set on the corresponding day last year – but this year’s rate is forecast to be a new aircraft every 10 seconds.
Wendy Howard-Allen, head of service performance for NATS, said: “From Friday through the half-term is going to be very busy. We’ve done a lot of work to optimise airspace.”MAJOR TRAFFIC
Forecasters expect the weekend to start off dry and bright in most regions before turning cooler.
Getaways are expected to peak on Saturday with 6.6 million trips, according to the RAC survey of 1,709 UK drivers.
Major roads are likely to be busiest between 10am and 3pm that day, suggesting motorists should set off as early as possible to avoid congestion.
Routes leading to the coasts and national parks could see the worst traffic.ROADS CLOSED
Highways England said it is removing more than 700 miles of roadworks ahead of the weekend, meaning 97% of motorways and major A-roads in England will be free of cones.
Met Office deputy chief meteorologist Chris Bulmer said: “At the moment Saturday looks to be one of the better days of the weekend with the promise of sunshine for most, whereas Sunday will be cloudier with outbreaks of rain moving in from the west.
“By Monday this rain and cloud should clear with a return to sunny spells and the odd shower in places, feeling cooler across the country in the fresh westerly breeze.”
RAC patrol of the year Ben Aldous said: “When warmer weather coincides with traffic jams, it’s particularly important that every driver is confident their car can keep its cool to avoid a breakdown.
“So we strongly recommend lifting the bonnet to check the coolant is at the right level, and if it’s not, to either top up or visit a good local garage to get it checked out.”RAIL DISRUPTION
Rail passengers also face disruption over the coming days as Network Rail carries out various engineering projects.
Significant work on the West Coast Main Line will see changes to services between London Euston and Cumbria throughout the weekend.
Sections remaining open will see longer journeys, fewer available seats and may require rail replacement buses.
The disruption is due to the replacement of track sections and overhead electric cables, as well as maintaining bridges, tunnels and trackside equipment.
Martin Frobisher, managing director of Network Rail’s London North Western route, said: “We recognise there is never an ideal time to shut the railway for our must-do work.MOST READ IN NEWS CHILLING SLIP Maxine Carr caught over Soham murders thanks to key mistake in TV interview CARE SICKOS Smirking care home staff attack autistic patient & use 'psychological torture' 'not knowing is torture' Dad of vanished teen sometimes 'envies parents of murdered kids' 'I LAUGHED AT HIM' Ex-Para Brexit voter, 81, mocks childish yob who threw milkshake at him STAY OF BREXECUTION Doomed May could cling on for two more weeks and quit after Trump visit PIPE DREAM Horny teen gets his penis stuck while having sex with a metal sewage pipe
“Bank holidays are the least disruptive time to do it, when fewer passengers use the railway compared to the working week. That way we can do the maximum amount of work while impacting the fewest people.
Other bank holiday engineering work includes track replacement between Farringdon and West Hampstead in London, causing Thameslink services to be diverted.
Buses will replace trains between Wickford and Southend Victoria in Essex due to an overhead wiring upgrade.
JIHADI Jack told his parents he wanted to behead British soldiers in an ISIS terror attack, a court heard today.
Teen Muslim convert Jack Letts claimed “I would love to perform a martyrdom” after seeing a photo of an old school friend celebrating passing a Commando Artillery Course in the British Army.John Letts and Sally Lane are accused of sending money to their son in SyriaPA:Press AssociationJack Letts fled the UK to join ISIS
The comments were today read to the court as the parents of Letts – who was nicknamed Jihadi Jack – faced trial accused of funding terrorism.
Organic farmer John Letts, 58, and his wife Sally Lane, 56, have denied the charges after it was claimed they sent or tried to send sums totalling £1,723 to their son even though they had every reason to believe he had joined Islamic State in Syria.
The Old Bailey today heard claims the couple knew how extreme their son’s views had become after seeing a comment he had written below photo of a group of soldiers, including a school friend Linus, as they celebrated completing a commando artillery course for the British Army in July 2015.
When Jack saw it, he allegedly responded: “I would love to perform a martyrdom operation in this scene”.
Prosecutor Alison Morgan QC said the defendants appeared shocked by his Facebook post with mum Lane allegedly urging him not to be “so stupid”.
The mum said: “How did we bring you up to be so easily manipulated?”
Her son allegedly responded: “I admit it was wrong if I seemed like I was joking. I genuinely believe attacking the British Army is a very praiseworthy action when the intention is correct. “I would happily kill each and every one of Linus Unit personally.
I’m really hoping that your disgusting comments about cutting people’s heads off are not coming from you, i.e. someone else is using your accountSally Laneto her son Jack Letts
“This message for you, Mum and (younger brother) Tyler, I honestly want to cut Linus head off.
“I hope he finds himself lost in Beji or Fallujah one day and sees me whilst I’m armed and I put six bullets in his head.”
His mother, a former fundraising and marketing officer, replied: “I’m really hoping that your disgusting comments about cutting people’s heads off are not coming from you, i.e. someone else is using your account.”
Letts told his son: ‘You are also now caught up in a crusade that has left so many lives shattered…I hope you haven’t lost your compassion Jack, either towards your brothers or your enemies.
“I think your leaders are good at twisting the writings of your holy books to justify their actions…”‘I’M A TERRIBLE PARENT’
The jury were told a police investigation was launched in 2015 into Jack’s activities, with cops later seizing evidence from his home in Oxfordshire.
Alison Morgan, prosecuting, said: “John Letts contacted Jack to tell him that as a result of his activities the police had attended their home.
“On 1 April 2015, he told Jack ‘just wanted to let you know the impact of your choices on your family’ and referred to the impact on the family from computer devices being taken away from them.
“He continued: ‘They are watching everyone. Luckily we don’t know anything about what you’re doing. I just hope you have enough sense not to ruin your future while you’re so young’.”
Lane also contacted her son while he was fighting for ISIS and told him she had been “a terrible parent”, it was said.
She messaged him on October 19, 2015, and said she had “clearly indulged him” and made him think he was “centre of the universe”, jurors heard.
Lane continued: “I regret this bitterly. I was a terrible parent that gave you too much power as a child – I should have made you adapt to the world, instead of adapting myself to your world.”
Letts also berated his son, saying: “Why should I risk going to jail for helping a 20 year old who is acting like a spoiled child rather than a man.”‘EVERY SOUL WILL TASTE DEATH’
The message on Facebook came before two of the attempted bank transfers on December 31, 2015, and January 4, 2016.
The court was told that just before Christmas, Jack asked his mother what would happen if he returned to England.
Lane replied: “What sort of question is that? I know you’re not returning to England.
“If you hadn’t done any fighting you’d get less (i.e. less time in prison) than if you had.
“However, they would still try you for being part of a terrorist organisation, as defined by British law.”
His dad also replied and told Jack he would be arrested if he came back as he was “suspected of being a member of a proscribed organisation” and was “considered a threat”.
Following on from the exchange Jack told his parents: “I don’t want to leave because of fear of bombs. Every soul will taste death.
“Rather I believe the Islamic state teaches the people a huge creedal mistake. And I don’t want to be part of that teaching.MOST READ IN NEWS CHILLING SLIP Maxine Carr caught over Soham murders thanks to key mistake in TV interview CARE SICKOS Smirking care home staff attack autistic patient & use 'psychological torture' 'not knowing is torture' Dad of vanished teen sometimes 'envies parents of murdered kids' 'I LAUGHED AT HIM' Ex-Para Brexit voter, 81, mocks childish yob who threw milkshake at him STAY OF BREXECUTION Doomed May could cling on for two more weeks and quit after Trump visit PIPE DREAM Horny teen gets his penis stuck while having sex with a metal sewage pipe
“If I’m part of a group that takes over a city and then these people teach them Islam incorrectly and I know they are going to do that then I’m blameworthy”.
