Amy Huberman’s new TV drama Striking Out kicked off last night at 9.30pm on RTÉ.

Huberman plays a successful Dublin-based Solicitor Tara Rafferty, engaged to colleague Eric Dunbar.

When Tara discovers her fiancé has been cheating on her with a co-worker, she ends the relationship and walks away from her job.

She soon realises she is more than competent in making it on her own.

Amy told RTÉ, "Her world is upside down and she has to find her feet… personally and professionally. She leaves this firm that she's worked with and her personal life is in tatters."

This is her first starring role on Irish TV since The Clinic finished. The actress played a supporting role in Irish comedy Can’t Cope, Won’t Cope which follows the “unravelling” of a friendship.

The show is also available on the RTÉ player for anyone who was too hung-over to tune in last night.

With their exaggerated curves and voluptuous lips, the Kardashian-Jenners are often accused of befriending Hollywood’s beloved plastic surgeons.

But while her entrepreneurial sister eventually admitted to making her famous pout “a little too big”, it seems Kendall Jenner’s journey towards cosmetic enhancement may only be beginning.

On Monday night, the model’s younger sibling uploaded a picture to Instagram in which Kendall’s lips appear far fuller than they have previously.

Fans were quick to pick up on the 21-year-old’s changed appearance and promptly concluded that she must have received lip fillers.

Many of the KUWTK star’s followers expressed disappointment over the alleged alteration and tweeted that they had hoped she would preserve her natural good looks.

 

 

A number of online commentators furthered this theory by suggesting Kendall deleted her Instagram account so she could quietly remove images which would prove her lips have changed.

However, Kylie has since taken the blame for Kendall’s new look by telling her Snapchat followers that she overlined her sister’s lips before sharing the attention grabbing post.

“You guys, Kendall let me overline her lips today with lip liner and everyone thinks she got lip injections,” confessed the cosmetics guru.  “I’m sorry Kendall.”

As part of The X Factor’s biggest success story, Niall Horan was surely once the apple of Simon Cowell’s eye.

But ever since signing with Universal, it seems the Mullingar man’s relationship with his former mentor has gone downhill.

X Factor sources have told The Sun that despite having a new song out, Niall will not be asked to perform as part of this year’s series because Simon believes he lacks loyalty.

The insider said: “Niall hasn’t been invited to sing on any of the remaining live shows, despite having a big release.  That’s not an oversight from the bookings team, it’s intentional.”

“Simon really thought the 1D boys would show loyalty after he mentored them on the show and made them the huge global success they are.  Instead they went behind his back,” they continued.

“He’s not going to do them any favours.  He knows artists love performing on the show as there are eight million viewers to promote their songs to.”

A source close to the 23-year-old singer says he is well aware of the situation with Simon but suggested that he has chosen to take the high road.

“They knew when he didn’t sign with Syco he wouldn’t be appearing on The X Factor. Everyone is totally fine.”

“He’s extremely proud and grateful for everything The X Factor did for him,” they said.

Earlier this month, the 57-year-old music mogul suggested Niall’s first solo single would have made number one if he had signed with Syco.

He then bragged that James Arthur has taken the chart’s top spot after returning to his label.

 

That was one of the best performances ever seen on @TheXFactor. Congratulations @LittleMix

She’s publicly denied cheating with Geordie Shore’s Scotty T, but it seems Katie Price’s marriage hasn’t escaped the effects of the rumours.

Following the publication of photos of the model emerging from the reality star’s car, the Loose Women panellist opted to take some time away from the spotlight to focus on her relationship.

But today reports suggest that the move may not be enough to save Katie's marriage as her husband Kieran Hayler is said to have been left feeling “emasculated” by the drama.

According to a Now Magazine source, the former stripper is contemplating leaving the mother of five.

“Kieran can't handle any more humiliation,” claimed the source.  “Katie’s ditched the woman he married and replaced her with Jordan.”

“Stripping off, baring her boobs, nights out, all the while he’s sat at home looking after the kids and the house.”

“The pictures of her with Scotty just add to the problems for Kieran.  He confronted her, accusing her of double standards and blatantly flirting.”

“He screamed, ‘I'm not scared of leaving you, just try me!’”

“He's ready to pack his bags if she keeps pushing him like this.  He feels like he can't live up to the marriage she had with Pete.”

 

So proud of my hubby on his horse he is getting so good

Despite the source’s claims, Katie took to Instagram over the weekend to clarify that she and Kieran “are happily married with no problems”.

The 38-year-old previously used Twitter to deny that she had cheated with Scotty.

A photo which claims to show Kendall Jenner wearing a burka as a disguise has sparked outrage online as commentators believe the act is disrespectful towards Muslims.

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star was subject to a stream of social media based abuse for the picture which was posted to Instagram by DJ Neptune yesterday, but already people are questioning the authenticity of the image.

While the model is reportedly spending time in Dubai as her family recovers from the trauma of Kim’s Parisian robbery, The Sun has highlighted a number of inconsistencies with the photograph which suggest it may have been digitally manipulated.

Clues like the DJ’s bent right ear and the way in which the sun hits Neptune’s shoulder suggest the shot – which purports to show the 20-year-old model standing outside the Burj Khalifa – has been altered.

Despite the strange nature of the pic, Twitter users have bombarded Kendall with abuse for allegedly using a burka to avoid the paparazzi.

One person wrote: “Kendall is the epitome of white privilege, if any of yall are defending her dumbass wearing a burka re-evaluate your entire lives (sic).”

While another said: “Kendall Jenner wore a burka to hide from the paparazzi and is being praised.  Us Muslim women wear it and get insulted left, right and centre.”

Kendall has yet to address the controversy online, but a second image of her and the DJ has since been posted to his account.

It shows the pair posing before allegedly going for dinner.

She wowed the judges with her latest Strictly performance, but that doesn’t mean Laura Whitmore is without her critics.

Last week, the Bray native hit headlines after reportedly ignoring Georgia May Foote’s request to stop posting photos of her dance partner and Georgia’s ex, Giovanni Pernice, on social media.

Since then, the former Coronation Street star has unfollowed the popular presenter online, presumably in a bid to distance herself from her former friend’s dance practices.

Now, Geordie Shore’s Marnie Simpson has decided to weigh in on the drama by criticising both Laura and Giovanni in her latest Star magazine column.

Fresh from her stint in Lithuania with Chloe Ferry, Lewis Bloor’s girlfriend wrote: “I don’t know why Georgia May Foote is bothered about her ex Giovanni Pernice – he’s not even nice.”

“She’s a beautiful girl and can do so much better.”

“People are saying he’ll hook up with his new partner Laura Whitmore,” she continued.  “But Georgia is way better.”

The 24-year-old Celebrity Big Brother contestant added: “Laura was really cold to me when I met her.”

With his little sister dating her child’s father, Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna’s relationship has been complicated from the get-go.

But with their own baby due in the coming weeks, speculation surrounding the quality – and even existence – of their relationship has intensified.

TMZ has reported that the famous pair have broken up and that it is because they are no longer an item that the Kardashian fam did not invite Chyna to a baby shower they’ve been planning for Rob.

According to a new report, the Kardashian-Jenners organised separate his and hers pre-birth parties because the expectant parents “haven’t been speaking for months”.

Sources say Chyna agreed to this format without Rob knowing and so when he did find out he took to Twitter to express his anger and share Kylie’s phone number in some weird form of retaliation.

The 29-year-old sock entrepreneur and the 28-year-old model are said to have “briefly reunited for a dinner the night before their reality show premiered, but other than that…they’ve been split”.

 

Rob and Chyna  E!

However separate reports are today suggesting that while the reality stars’ relationship is rocky, it is not actually over.

A Mirror insider said that the split stories are not true, while a People source has claimed that Rob and Chyna are going through a rough patch.

“They are always up and down, but they went through a very rough patch as recently as last week. They weren't speaking, or even texting.”

“It doesn't bode well for their relationship, especially considering the baby is coming so soon. They're not broken up, but it's not a healthy relationship at all,” they said.

Unlike his famous sisters, Rob Kardashian can be a bit hit or miss when it comes to using social media.

But last night the only male Kardashian was all over Twitter as in a series of bizarre tweets Rob publically revealed Kylie Jenner’s phone number and hit out at his family over their relationship with his partner, Blac Chyna.

While things seemed to be going relatively well between pregnant Chyna and the Kardashian-Jenners in recent weeks, the father-to-be wrote: “Didn’t invite the Mother of my child to a baby shower you all were trying to throw for me?  You all must have lost your damn minds.”

And – in a move which has people thinking that 19-year-old Kylie had caused the alleged baby shower drama – her step-sibling tweeted her phone number alongside a claim that the tweets were his own and not the work of a hacker.

“I ain’t hacked either this is rob dog,” read one tweet which was shared from Rob’s official Twitter account with his 6.65 million followers.

According to the Mail Online, the now viral phone number does actually match the Lip Kit entrepreneur’s Instagram contact information.

Yesterday was like an unexpected Christmas for Justin Bieber fans everywhere as it appeared to all that his fortnight long Instagram protest had come to an end.

But it seems the 22-year-old Canadian was left feeling Sorry about his apparent decision to return to the ‘gram as once again his account has disappeared into thin air.

As his fans discovered the modern day tragedy last night, the Love Yourself singer used Twitter – because he is still on that – to claim his brief return to the image sharing channel was “an accident”.

 

 

Without trying to soften the blow for the Beliebers in any way, JB wrote bluntly: “Still no Instagram it was an accident.”

Naturally Justin’s fans have been left devastated by the news.  One posted on Twitter: “Oh my gosh @justinbieber please please please undelete your Instagram.  I can’t function without seeing your posts.”

While another said: “Without you on Instagram @justinbieber it’s not the same.  I miss seeing you everyday.  But I respect it, although I don’t like it.”

As new images reveal the toxic nature of her romance with Russian businessman Egor Tarabasov, Lindsay Lohan has spoken publicly for the first time about the violence in their relationship.

After two weeks of intense drama – which saw Lindsay suggest she was pregnant and openly claim Egor had cheated on her – the troubled star has now told the Daily Mail that there have been numerous instances of violence since she and Egor first began their romance less than ten month ago.

Speaking of the night Lindsay was heard screaming outside her London home that Egor had tried to strangle her, the star said: “Egor and I had been out for dinner.  We danced, it was fun.”

“When we got home I went to bed and Egor went out.  A few hours later he came back and when I woke up he was standing over me.  He wasn't himself, he was being very aggressive and he attacked me.”

 

 

The Freaky Friday actress then revealed her motivation for now sharing her story.  She said: “I wanted to do this interview because it's time to tell the truth.”

“There have been so many lies printed about me recently.  I've kept quiet for so long but now I'm scared of what Egor might do to me and to himself.”

“It's not the first time.  That's the problem.  But this time, someone saw.  I didn't call anyone, I've dealt with enough police in LA.  I just left the house and went to the Connaught [Hotel] for the night.”

“I contacted my good friend Hofit Golan who was in St Tropez.  She said, ‘Get on a plane, come and meet me,’ so I did.  I needed some time for myself.”

 

 

Despite their troubled relationship, the former child star told the Daily Mail she is still wearing her engagement ring because she had hoped to reunite with Egor.

She said: “I haven't taken it off, even after all this…The truth is, I wanted to make things work, but now I'm not sure that I can.”

“I know I'm not an angel but I've tried to fix things.  It's down to him now.  I had suggested we go for couples' counselling but there comes a time when I have to put myself first, my family, and also think about my career which I've worked so hard for.”

 

“I also don't want to let my fans down by not being the strong woman I have become.”

Lindsay – who admitted she had hoped to get married and start a family with 23-year-old Egor – said: “I realise now you can’t stay in a relationship just for love.”

“No woman can be hit and stay with that person if that person isn’t prepared to say sorry.”

It’s been little more than a week since Lindsay Lohan made a cryptic pregnancy announcement on Twitter and although many people had their doubts over the legitimacy of the claim, Lindsay’s father Michael did not.

Last week the father of seven told Us magazine that the former child star would not lie to him about being pregnant with her Russian fiancé’s child, but it seems LiLo’s mother Dina has adopted a more sceptical stance on the situation as it has been reported that she does not believe Lindsay is expecting.

According to TMZ, Lindsay’s mam says the star’s pregnancy claim was nothing more than an attempt at getting revenge on Egor after it was alleged he cheated on and tried to strangle the actress in a week of intensive drama.

Dina believes Lindsay was distraught when she said she was expecting and that she just “overreacted”. 

Apparently Lindsay and Egor are still engaged and that despite currently spending time apart they do intend on reuniting in the future.

The Freaky Friday actress has yet to comment on her parents’ claims and appears to still be travelling with friends while she recovers from last week’s ordeal.
