She couldn’t help but gush about starting a family with her beau Robert, who popped the question three months ago.

She said, “We're so excited to become parents. This next step is an adventure, and we’re looking forward to raising a happy, healthy, inquisitive, strong, and accepting child, and starting our own little family, as a trio!"

37-year-old Robert said Melissa was destined to be a mum, “I'm over the moon but nervous too! Melissa is so used to kids, and she’ll be an amazing mum instantly.”

The dad-to-be added, “There is nobody on earth I’d rather take on this challenge with, and I’m looking forward to every second of it.”

The couple celebrated their engagement in July. Melissa announced their wonderful news by posting a photo of her engagement ring to her Instagram account. She captioned the snap ‘#ISaidYaass’

2019 has certainly been quite the incredible year for Melissa and Robert.


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.

Jack Fincham has landed himself in some pretty scaldy water today after admitting to taking cocaine over the weekend, referring to it as a 'terrible, terrible error'.

The former Love Island star, who is loved up with fellow show winner Dani Dyer, has revealed to The Sun that he had a 'blowout' while clubbing with friends last Saturday.

He candidly said that he felt like he had to give in to the peer pressure and constant offers of drugs; "In the past I would never have found myself in a club where everyone wants to be your friend – but obviously they’re not really your friends at all," he claimed.

He spoke about the consistency of being offered free alcohol, compared to his past when he had to watch his bank balance;

“Before I couldn’t really afford to go out and drink all night with how expensive it is. But all of a sudden I’m being offered free drinks the whole night, getting more drunk than I ever would have been before and I’ve gone along with it.

He contined; "That night, it was a complete error in judgment. It’s a silly thing to do, it’s not something I’ve made a habit of. I mean, what an idiot."

“It’s not a reflection of my character, but I’ve had a blowout. It was a lapse in judgment, but it’s not something that I’ll ever do again.”


A post shared by Jack Fincham (@jack_charlesf) on

He confessed that Dani was disappointed with him when he told her the following day, and discouraged his young fans from ever following in his footsteps when it comes to drugs.

“I’ve told Dani, and obviously she doesn’t agree with anything like that at all," he said. “She doesn’t like all that. But obviously she’ll always support me."

"She said, ‘I’ll always support you, you made a mistake, we all make mistakes, but don’t ever do it again’. I don’t want to bring her into it, I’ve had a conversation with her and it’s not fair on her.”

Jack said Danny Dyer, Dani's father and veteran EastEnders actor, was likely to take "a dim view" of his actions.

"It will never happen again but I’m pretty sure any parent would take the same view on it," he insisted.

Former Strictly star Kara Tointon has welcomed a baby boy into the world.

The new arrival is her and her fiancé Marius Jenson’s first child together, and they are over the moon to have finally met their little bundle of joy.

The EastEnders alum confirmed the news to Hello!, bubbling with excitement.

“On Thursday at 11:04am, 3.2 kilos of happiness joined our lives,” the actress raved.

And while the happy couple are doting over their little one, some of the family members have been fairly protective of the newest member.

“Kara and I couldn't be happier and our four legged companions Elfie and Winston have been guarding our new family member since.”

How sweet! 


A post shared by @kara_tointon on

Fans were shocked when the mum confirmed the baby news, for she only announced she was expecting last month.

Speaking of both her upcoming wedding and pregnancy, she said: “It’s an incredible time. It’s the biggest life changing moment when you have this little human being coming into your life that you are yet to meet.

It has been quite the year for the pair as they enjoy life in their love bubble.

They have been together for two years and get on well due to their many shared interests like art and music.

In fact, their first date was at the Royal Academy of Arts, where Marius confessed he took Kara in an attempt to impress her.

Kara found Marius charming and immediately fell head over heels.

“For me it was always about meeting the person that you know is the one you want to share this experience with,” she said.

Congratulations to the happy couple!

Love Island winner and nation's sweetheart Dani Dyer revealed that she went on the show after she was turned down for a part on Eastenders.

In an interview with the Daily Star on Sunday, she told the tabloid that the BBC was considering her for a part on the show, before deciding she wasn't quite right for the role.

'I don’t know about Eastenders. They wouldn’t let me on it,' she said.

The reality TV star feels that her Dad Danny Dyer's character on the show was a reason for her not getting it. 

'I think it’s because my dad is already on it, there would be a massive outrage,' she said. 

A source told the Daily Star that Dani was 'heartbroken' over the news that she didn't get the part.

'She was sick of bar work and was struggling to make it as an actress so decided to do reality TV,' the source said. 

We're sure Eastenders are gutted they didn't take her!


Huge congratulations are in order as Jacqueline Jossa has welcomed her second child. It is understood that she gave birth to her baby girl.

According to Ok! Magazine, Jacqueline and reality star Dan Osborne welcomed their second daughter into the world this morning.

Jacqueline and Dan also share three-year-old daughter Ella together.

The actress revealed that she was expecting her second child at the beginning of the year, admitting that she was stunned when she found out she was pregnant. 

"We both started laughing when the test was positive. We hadn’t been trying so it was a huge shock. I think I’m still getting my head around it,” the former Eastenders star admitted.

The parents have been through quite a rocky period as of late, with Dan moving out of their family home. However, Jacqueline said the dad is making an effort.

“We’re spending time together and seeing how things go. Dan hasn’t moved back in, but we’re seeing what happens,” she shared.

The mum-of-two added: “He’s here a lot helping with Ella and he’ll be hands-on when the baby arrives. We’re getting on at the moment and that’s the most important thing to us.”

We can’t wait to find out what name Jacqueline and Dan pick for their daughter.



Jacqueline Jossa was hit with a wave of backlash after viewers of the British Soap Awards believed she made a disrespectful comment.

Fans of the award show were stunned when the actress supposedly said: “Everything is always self-harm on that show,” or “They all self-harm on that show.”

The comment was made when three Hollyoaks actresses won an award for best storyline, which saw their three characters grapple with self-harm.

Many users said the Eastenders actress was a ‘sore loser’ and found her comment extremely unfair and disrespectful, however, Jacqueline has come forward and explained it was taken out of context.

The mum took to Instagram to explain herself, “Just to clear things up, Lacey asked me what the storyline was, as we couldn't hear. I answered with ‘I’m not actually sure. I think they all self-harmed on the show'.”

The actress went on to explain that she hasn’t watched Hollyoaks recently and was unsure of what exactly the storyline was: “I wasn’t discrediting, I was literally answering what the storyline was.”

“I know that self-harm isn’t a joke. I love any soap that tackles hard stories. It’s been taken out of context. Sorry for offence,” the soap star stated.

Jacqueline explained that her co-star Jake Wood's recent storyline also featured self-harm so she wasn’t disrespecting the topic.


Goodbye to the Branning sisters I will miss you Lauren Branning. Always.

A post shared by Jacqueline Osborne (@jacjossa) on

“I wasn’t hating. I was answering a question,” the actress stressed.



At the start of 2017, Roxy and Ronnie Mitchell were killed off on Eastenders.

The sisters both drowned together in a swimming pool, and understandably, many viewers were outraged by their deaths.

Why? Well, only three years previous, Ronnie and Roxy got into a car accident which left them plunging into the depths of a deep lake… and they saved themselves. So, why couldn't they save themselves in a swimming pool?

But moving on, on Thursday night's episode, the residents of Albert Square were preparing for the funerals of the sisters, which saw Jack Branning visit his wife Ronnie, as she lay in her coffin.

However, many viewers noticed that Roxy's body was never shown. Then, later in the episode, Phil Mitchell received a random phone call, to which he said was a wrong number.

But he later rang back that number and had a conversation with the caller. "Hello, I saw your missed call, why are you ringing so late," said Phil.

"OK, alright, calm down. Of course I'll see you. Alright I'll meet you there."

And that was all that was needed to make viewer's suspicions rise:



It looks like Fatboy is set to have an explosive return to Eastenders… even though he's already dead in the soap.

The character, played by Ricky Norwood, was killed off last Christmas under very dodgy circumstances, however, his body was never seen and the police never confirmed his death.

Now, this means the writers could easily play the card that his death was a hoax.

Ricky spoke to Inside Soap recently and said: "There are still petitions going on! I get told, 'we want Fats back' on a daily basis, whether it's a message on Twitter or somebody I meet in the street.

"To have had that impact on the nation, with a character who was supposed to be on Eastenders for three months, was amazing."

He went on to say that he can see himself coming back onto the show after a year away, and the return might just include everyone's favourite, Dot.

"It might be a bit much for her if she ever found out the truth. Dot saw Fats as pure and almost incorruptible, which is why she didn't want him messing about in too many dodgy things.

"His death would really hurt her, but storyline-wise it might be fun if she went on a secret rampage for Fats, messing up Vincent in one way or another."

Oooh, this could be a very interesting return!


Congratulations are in order for Lacey Turner as she and long-term boyfriend Matt Kaye are now engaged.

Matt took to social media to announce the good news and it seems Lacey was pretty shocked.

“She said yes… ooossshhh #Fiance”


She said yes….ooooosssshhhhhhhh #fiance @laceyturner

Fans were quick to send their well-wishes to the couple with one saying:

“YAY! Best news I’ve heard! It’s about bloody time! Love you both”.

A close friend of Lacey and Matt’s took to Instagram to share another sweet snap of the moment saying:

“Just want to say a huge congratulations to my best mates Lacey and Matt on their engagement. So happy for you both, love you both so much”.

Lacey is best known for playing outspoken Stacey Fowler on Eastenders since 2004.



According to a report in The Independent, the partner of a former EastEnders actress has admitted to her murder and that of their childrens' in December of last year.

A lawyer for Arthur Simpson-Kent has confirmed that the jury in Mr. Simpson-Kent's case would be informed of his admission at his trial in October.

Sian Blake, who played Frankie Pierre in 56 episodes of EastEnders between 1996 and 1997. and her two sons, eight-year-old Zachary and four-year-old Amon, went missing at the end of last year, with their disappearance sparking a major police inquiry.

Tragically, the body of the former actress and her two  young sons were discovered by police in the back garden of their home several weeks after their disappearance.

Mr. Simpson-Kent, who was arrested at Heathrow Airport after being extradited from Ghana, has yet to enter a former plea.



For reasons unexplained, we all kinda fancied Bradley Branning in Eastenders. He was the cute guy-next-door who would do anything for Stacey, the love of his life.

Well, actor Charlie Clements is returning to the small screen, and we can't believe how different he looks these days.

For the past few years he's appeared in plays and cameo appearances, but his new show is slotting him in prime time again.

Henry VIII is set to air on Channel 5 soon, and the dad-of-two went on Loose Women to talk all about it. 

Many fans took to Twitter to say he looks way older for his years, as he's only 28-years-old – but we're blaming the beard and glasses for that.

Looking at the clip above though, he's still the cheeky chap we all loved.
