A body has been found in the search for missing teenager Nora Quoirin, according to police sources in Malaysia.

Mohammed Yusop told MailOnline:

"I can confirm a body has been found in the Betembum mountains. It is not in an accessible place". He added that forensic examination was needed to determine if the body was male or female.

An officer told the Mirror UK: "We think we have found a body, but we need to confirm it is her. Please be patient. We will let you know as soon as it's confirmed."

Two forensics vans and more police cars have been seen entering the area, which is now sealed off with police tape.

The discovery was made as the search entered its tenth day in the Malaysian jungle, where Nora was holidaying with her family before she went missing.

The eco-resort in Dusun is around 64km from Kuala Lampur. The 15-year-old was reported missing on August 4 after her father raised the alarm when a downstairs window was wide open.

Around 350 people joined the search for Nora, in dense jungle and a river including Indigenous trackers, Interpol, an Garda Siochana and Scotland Yard.

Her mother and father, Meabh and Sebastien Quoirin, thanked search parties for their efforts:

“To be with us here, it means the world to us. We are so grateful for everything that you are doing for us, everyone who is helping here and not from here."

The parents of Madeleine McCann, Kate and Gerry, yesterday said that hearing of Nora's case "brings back horrors" of Madeleine's disappearance and sent Meabh and Sebastien Quoirin their prayers.

Our hearts are broken for Nora's parents, who must be going through hell. Any further information on the identification of the body will be updated soon.

Music festivals are absolutely infamous for producing mass amount of waste, especially single-use plastic. This Dublin festival hopes to change the sustainability of their event, and we love it.

Beatyard takes place on August 3 and 4 this summer in Dun Laoghaire, with a stellar musical line-up, delicious food stalls, boat parties, pop-up fashion shops as well as games and entertainment.

Not to mention some class afterparties in The Lighthouse and Wigwam, if you have a weekend ticket. The party never stops during this August weekend, and if the sun decides to shine it's set to be stunning.

The acts scheduled to play on Saturday and Sunday include Groove Armada, Jungle, Chvrches, Soulé, Erica Cody, SG Lewis, Fleetmac Wood, Mount Kimbie, Todd Terje, Grandmaster Flash and Icarus. 

Boat parties are also taking place on both days for €15 a ticket (if you have a Beatyard pass) and are hosted by Gxrl Cøde, District Magazine, The Midnight Disco and Yachty by Nature.

Eatyard will of course be making an appearance, with Teddy's ice-cream, The Vegan Queen, Lala Putine, Pieman, Hells BBQ, Zero Zero Pizza, Sweet Churro, Big Blue Bus, Handsome Burger, 3FE, Taco Truck, Crepe Box, Maki, Kono Pizza, Doghouse Dogs and Buttercream Dream.

The bar closes at 10pm each day, and gates open at 12pm. Kids under 15 must be accompanied by an adult. The tickets are just €59 for one day, of €99 for the whole weekend.

The festival has a new scheme for garnering help to clean-up the litter from the sesh, and it's a decent deal if we do say so ourselves.

If you volunteer and help them sort waste for just one hour, you’ll get a free ticket to the festival that day. It sounds too good to be true, honestly, but we can vouch for the legitimacy.

According to the organisers; “The main issue we have had with waste over the years was not cleaning it up, but organising the waste into the correct containers, and bags, so that nothing gets spoiled, and the waste we put away can be efficiently recycled or wasted in the correct format.”

All you have to do is fill in your contact info, and then Beatyard will mail you the meeting point and information three weeks before the festival. You'll be put into a team with a specific but simple job for one hour.

What's in it for you? A free Sunday ticket or a ticket for the festival for 2020 if you’re there on Monday. They've also continued their 'Bin It To Win It' campaign, which allows you to score a free pint.

Collect a bin bag from any of the bars, fill it with plastic pint glasses, bring it back to the designated recycling point and BOOM: Free pint. It couldn't be simpler.

As if this wasn't incredible enough, the festival is also running it's eco-brick initiative to reduce non-biodegradable waste. They aim to build a DJ riser out of all the eco-bricks they create and collect.

For each two-litre eco-brick you produce, they'll give you a pint token for the bar. Drop it off at The Bernard Shaw when you get a chance and it's free pint city. Here's instructions on how to make them.

The Governess has officially left the I'm A Celeb jungle and she is looking UNREAL.

Though she departs the jungle with some incredible memories, there is something she has left behind.

Anne has lost a staggering stone in just three weeks of living in the camp.

The weight loss comes as contestants would occasionally get treats or meals when they won stars, but mainly the celebrities had to survive off of rice and beans.

Anne opened up about her food in the jungle and it looks like she won't be tucking into portions of rice any time soon.

Talking to This Morning, the 60-year-old said via a video call: “The trouble is really there is no salt.

“About a week ago my digestive system just said to me ‘I’m sorry, I'm not having any more rice."

She continued to tell Phillip Schofield and Rochelle Humes that:  "I can have beans, I can have rice and beans but I am having no more rice because it is just going straight through."

“So since then I’ve not had rice by itself. It just went straight through me,” – delightful. 

Fans were quick to spot her slimmer frame and took to social media to compliment the Chase star.

"Anne has lost so much weight since going in to the jungle she looks great," tweeted one.

Another user said: "I like her, she's done so well and lost loads of weight too. Well done Anne."

Anyone up for a stint in the jungle after Christmas? Wouldn't mind shedding that extra winter fluff. 

But fair play to Anne, she was an amazing camp mate.

As former Hollyoaks actress Stephanie Davis is forced to quit the jungle – over a potentially fatal nut allergy – I'm A Celebrity bosses are desperately scrambling to secure some alternative big names for the reality TV show.

And it seems they've succeeded: signing a cheque for a cool €280,000 they've managed to rope in none other than former professional boxer Chris Eubank. 

“We have been struggling to attract big names in the older celebrity world, so we are delighted to have secured Chris.

“Chris is not a man known to mince his words, and he often comes out with bizarre rants, making him an ideal candidate for I’m A Celebrity," a source told The Sun.

They added: “His eccentricity will be something to behold – especially when he is hungry and deprived of sleep as campmates always are in the jungle."

Other names thought to be lined up for the reality show include Dragon’s Den investor Duncan Bannatyne, TOWIE star Ferne McCann, Made In Chelsea’s Spencer Matthews and X Factor choreographer Brian Friedmann.

Earlier this week, soap star Stephanie Davis, 22, confirmed on Twitter that although she had secured a place on the show, it was subsequently revealed that a nut allergy that could prove fatal.

Understandably, Stephanie has been left gutted that she can no longer take part.

Corrie’s Michelle Keegan is said to be in the running for the next series of I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here.

The actress has apparently had meetings with I’m a Celebrity producers who want her to appear on the show and bookers have made her big money offers to convince her to head into the jungle.

Michelle’s schedule is all freed up now after she filmed her last scenes for Coronation Street and the show did wonders for her fiancé TOWIE’s Mark Wright’s career, who came second when he was in the jungle.

Producers are reportedly desperate to get the actress into the jungle camp – not to mention the jungle shower – to boost the ratings as well as keep her from appearing on BBC rival Strictly Come Dancing.

Apparently, Olympic diver Tom Daley will also be heading into the jungle  along with Ashley Banjo, from dance group Diversity, when the show kicks off later this year.
