Comic Relief

We really are rooting for this pair, they're just too cute.

Dani Dyer and Jack Fincham are rubbishing claims that they've split up after his drug use confession last week with an adorable picture.

The Love Island winners reunited following her Comic Relief trip to Tanzania, after slamming reports that she'd moved out of their shared flat.

They appear to have put the rumours of trouble in relationship paradise behind them, as the pair share a cosy selfie cuddled up in bed.

Jack Fincham posted the snap to his Instagram story, captioning it, "Spilt tea down my front" with a gas face palm emoji. They're just too relatable, ain't they?

The pair denied reports that the 23-year-old daughter of Eastenders star Danny Dyer had moved her belongings out of their home after Fincham admitted to using cocaine.

The Sun published the comments he spoke, relating to submitting to peer pressure on nights out and Jack's deep regret at his actions.

She took to Twitter to write: "Sick of having to comment about my life! And people judging me and judging MY family. Nobody knows any facts or truth about me. Sick of people judging my relationship that they know nothing about. I don’t deserve any of this."

Jack retweeted Dani's statement and also wrote a piece for himself;

He wrote, "Please don’t read everything you read, I love Dani and her family and me and Dani are fine we love each other," before correcting himself, writing 'believe' instead of 'read'. LOL.

Dani has spent time in Tanzania before her upcoming charity climb up Mount Kilimanjaro later this month, saying her journey has "put a lot of things into perspective.”

The reality star will be joined on the climb by stars such as Strictly judge Shirley Ballas, presenter Alexander Armstrong and former politician Ed Balls.

Spice Girls and Girl Power are two things that have just always gone together. 

And it's something that the girl band are keeping close to their hearts as they unveiled this weekend.

The pop group – minus Posh – have announced that they've teamed up with Comic Relief to create a T-shirt which will raise money for women's charities. 

It seems that female solidarity is what they are, and always will be, about. 

All profits from the #IWannaBeASpiceGirl T-shirt will go to Comic Relief's Gender Justice campaign.

The band released a statement saying that, ''equality and the movement of people power has always been at the heart of the band. It is about equality for all, ’every boy and every girl.'''

They continued, ''we recently found out that charities focused on issues faced by women don’t get the funding that they desperately need, so launching a campaign to raise funds for these issues is incredibly important to us and an area we want to support.”


Don't forget, we're on #TheJRShow tonight. @itv from 10.05pm

The release of the charity T-shirt coincides with Equal Pay Day 2018, which is the date women in the UK begin working for free until the end of the year because of the gender pay gap.

In other news with the girls, they have expanded their summer 2019 reunion tour from six UK stadium dates to 11 as the demands for tickets have soared.

Well done ladies, it's a fantastic cause. 



Ed Sheeran proved that he truly is a divine being during his trip to Liberia for Comic Relief. 

After filming an appeal in a Liberian slum for the charity, the red haired singer was shook after witnessing the conditions that the young boys were facing. 

The star immediately felt that he couldn’t leave without trying to protect the child, and chose to pay out of his own pocket to help them. 

The young boy, named JD, had been sleeping rough in the slums. 

"JD & his friends, who @EdSheeran met, are now safe but many more children still live in danger."

"Help us help them http://www.rednoseday.com,” reads a tweet from Comic Relief. 

Ed, you beautiful human, you. 

Oh, and while we have you; don't forget to have your say in the inaugural SHEmazing Awards this May! It's time to vote, and you can do it right here!



In a very moving tribute to George Michael on The Late Late Show with James Corden, the British presenter shared his memories of the much-loved singer who tragically passed away on Christmas Day last year.

Recalling his meeting with the singer back in 2011, a clearly emotional James told his American audience that the Outside singer contacted him personally regarding the presenter's desire to do a sketch with him for Comic Relief.

"We chatted for an hour and we talked about music and I felt very privileged to be able to tell him how much his music meant to me," James said.

In the clip, which has racked up 80,000 views since yesterday, James reminded the public that if it wasn't for George Michael, it's unlikely the world would have been introduced to the wonder that is Carpool Karaoke.

Responding to James' tribute, one YouTube user wrote: "There needs to be a love button so I can hit it repeatedly!"

"Thank you for your tribute James. So true about George Michaels' music reaching out…so true!" added another.

We'll let James and George take it from here.




Russell Brand is not known for holding back when it comes to either his unique brand of comedy, or sharing his opinion.

However, the consensus is that he may have overstepped the mark with a less than tasteful joke during last night’s Comic Relief programme.

The 39-year-old came in for major criticism after making an awkward joke about syringes.

“I’m in the unfortunate position of having to ask you to donate money to buy syringes, literally the exact opposite of how I spend most of my time, and the previous two decades of my life,” he said.

With co-presenter Claudia Winkleman cringing beside him, he added: “Fighting every instinct of my being. Don’t make ‘em not work again, that’s terrible. I’ll share. Sharing is caring. Although do watch out for infectious blood diseases.”

Needless to say, Twitter users were horrified by his choice of ‘joke’, with one commenting: “Wow. People suffering from HIV and Russell Brand makes jokes about syringes and ‘banging up’?”

Meanwhile, another summed up the general feeling on social media, writing: “The awkward moment Russell Brand starts joking about how awful it is they’ve made non-reusable syringes on comic relief #GetOffTheTV”.

We're cringing very hard for him today.



Everybody's favourite TV presenter, Dermot O'Leary, has had a close call this weekend following a car accident in Kenya.

The 41-year-old X Factor star was filming for Comic Relief when a passing vehicle careered off the road, almost crashing into the makeshift beds Dermot and a group of homeless boys were occupying.

Immediately taking to social media to assure the public that both the boys and Dermot survived the frightening incident, Comic Relief staff tweeted: "A car crashed into a ditch feet away from the boys. Everyone is fine, but a big lucky escape."

Dermot, who was sleeping rough with youngsters Fred, Maurice and Hannington, was said to be shaken but unharmed following the terrifying incident.

The danger associated with sleeping rough by busy roads was proven following the accident, with the charity having earlier tweeted: "It's an incredibly vulnerable place to sleep which is why they stick together. The cars, motorbikes and rickshaws are so close the noise is something to behold."

The star also took to Twitter to thank fans and followers for their support in the aftermath of the frightening event and paid tribute to the youngsters he befriended during filming.

 Fingers crossed the rest of the trip goes off without a hitch.
