He said, ''We might adopt at some point, maybe in 10 or 15 years, once we’re done with the madness of our careers."

The reality TV star also opened up about how he had battled through a tough time before meeting Gareth. 

He said, ''In my mid-twenties, I reached breaking point and could no longer cope with the gap between my character and the real me. When I left the series in 2013, Alan Carr and Gok Wan came round and we got terribly drunk. Alan tried on my Union Jack suits and then I threw them away and cut my hair. I became so much happier."

Ollie and Gareth had their first couple photo shoot with HELLO! Magazine after announcing their engagement in September.

So how did Gareth propose? 

Ollie revealed, "We decided to go for a lovely walk with Bear [his dog] in Kensington Park Gardens which is my favourite park and we came across the Peter Pan statue, which is my favourite statue. I walked towards Gareth who was just standing there and he gave me a hug…"

The big day will take place next September in Italy however a formal marriage ceremony will take place at Chelsea Old Town Hall first. 

And it promises to be an intimate event but not a traditional wedding.

Ollie added, ''It's going to be entertaining and more of a party. I like the idea that his family and my family will be joined together."

Best of luck to them both – we can't wait to see this glitzy wedding. 


We will never understand how people can be so cruel to animals.

These saved dogs would melt your heart into little pieces, even though they haven't had the best start in life. 

Unfortunately, 86 dogs, including 23 puppies had to be rescued from an unlicensed dog breeder, by a Roscommon Dog Warden.

The animal's hero found them in "very poor conditions" according to the ISPCA.

One person had been caring for all 63 adult dogs and 23 puppies. 

Thankfully, the ADORABLE pooches are in the safe hands of the ISPCA

Heartbreakingly, 19 of them are being treated by the super vets for a number of conditions, including mange, eye and ear infections.

If the ISPCA didn't have enough on their plate, another 17 puppies were seized from a house on Thursday.

The pups were the consequence of irresponsible breeding by the owner. 

Understandably, the ISPCA is now calling on the public for financial donations to help care for the 100 canines, which the group have seized in just three days. 

Senior ISPCA Inspector Kevin McGinley said: “The ISPCA is grateful to have secured the removal of all dogs from this unlicensed premises." 

"With so many dogs in our care we are appealing to the public to support us financially with this challenge and by offering responsible homes for the pups and dogs. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Roscommon County Council and the county Dog Warden for their assistance.”

To relieve some of the pooch pressure, Dogs Trust stepped in and took 25 dogs, which the ISPCA "are very grateful for".

Breeds of the dogs range from Jack Russell terriers, Pugs and Shih Tzu's.-They're all just YUMMY.

The animals are all in the experienced hands of the ISPCA’s centres in Longford and Donegal. 

In light of the events, the ISPCA has called for the public to report any suspicions about unlicensed dog breeds to its National Animal Cruelty Helpline on 1890-515-515 or to their local authority.

It also asked owners to neuter their animals to avoid unwanted litters. 

If you're interesting in adopting any of the dogs, they will all be vaccinated, neutered and microchipped.

The ISPCA have a number of guidelines before you can adopt, such as a home visit to ensure that all their animals are responsibly re-homed.

If you could give one of these heart melting pups a good home, can we come over and give it a pet please? 

We will bring the cake and dog treats!



Cameron Diaz and Good Charlotte singer Benji Madden have decided to adopt, a source told Life & Style.

The couple, who will have been married three years in January, have decided they want to adopt from inside the United States, according to the source.

It's clear that the two are very supportive of one another, and they will doubtless show the same support to their child.

'I am so incredibly proud of his integrity as a human being,' the 45-year-old actress has said lovingly of her 38-year-old husband.

The rock musician clearly feels the same way about The Holiday star, saying in a birthday post about her, 'I don't think anyone could ever know the depth, kindness, and compassion that I get to experience everyday thanks to My One and Only.'

We wish them the best of luck in the adoption process.



Britney Spears is planning on expanding her family very soon!

According to the National Enquirer the singer wants to adopt a child and is in love with the idea of giving a better life to a disadvantaged baby.

She's planning on taking a trip to Malawi where she will adopt a daughter as she wants to add to her family.

An inside source told the paper, "They’ve discussed the process on several occasions, and she’s always wanted a daughter.

"She's considering adopting a little girl from Malawi."

Britney already has two sons with Kevin Federline, who she split up with almost ten years ago. Further reports are suggesting she's looking to her friend Madonna for advice since she adopted David, 10 and Mercy, 10.  



The Brangelina family is about to grow a little bit bigger!

Angelina Jolie and husband Brad Pitt have reportedly adopted a two-year-old boy from Syria, bringing their family total up to seven.

The A-list couple already have three adopted little ones – Maddox (12), Pax (11) and Zahara (9), plus three biological children, Shiloh (8) and twins Vivienne and Knox (5).

Brad and Ange made the decision to rescue the young boy from the Altinozu refugee camp in Turkey, after Angelina travelled there earlier this year as part of her work with the United Nations, for whom she works as an ambassador for refugees.

The actress was reportedly moved to tears upon meeting the little one, named Moussa.

"Angelina heard about him from a translator and she was obviously upset, but Moussa was just beaming from ear to ear and when he saw she was wiping tears from her eyes he toddled up to her and gave her a hug and it was a very emotional moment and everyone was suddenly laughing and smiling," a charity worker told Woman's Day magazine. 

"She kissed him on the top of his head and then they were basically inseparable for the rest of the visit."

After several checks to confirm that Moussa was indeed an orphan, Angelina was reportedly able to begin the process of adopting him.

No official announcement has been made by the couple as yet, but if the news is indeed true we are delighted for them and little Moussa.



She has previously expressed her desire to adopt a child, and now it seems that actress Rosario Dawson has finally brought her dream to reality.


According to reports, the Sin City actress has adopted a 12-year-old girl.


Adoption is a subject that is particularly close to the 35-year-old star’s heart. Rosario has previously spoken of her love for her step-father, Greg Dawson, who married her mother, Isabel, when Rosario was just one.


Speaking to You magazine, Rosario said: “He’s always been my dad. He loved my mum and he loved me. That was really amazing. He was strong for a young man of just 21.”


She counted her relationship with her step-father as one of the main reasons behind her desire to adopt.



She told Latina magazine: “I always wanted to adopt kids because my dad adopted me. That idea has stayed in the back of my head, but lately, I’ve been thinking about it more.”


Rosario is a keen charity supporter, and has previously hosted events for orphans and people in need.
