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.”

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.

The UK's best TV talent was out in force at the National Television Awards last. 

The star-studded event was held at the O2 in London and was hosted by the divine Dermot O'Leary, along with Queen of the Jungle, Scarlett Moffatt.

Here's a round up of some of the best looks on the red carpet last night. 

1. Megan McKenna

Megan gave us major flamenco dancer emoji vibes in this red ruffled two-piece. 

The reality TV star oozed Essex high-maintenance glamour with her bouffant up-do and flawless makeup. 

2. Caroline Flack

Caroline opted for a simple, chic tailored dress that fit her perfectly.

Who needs accessories when your dress fits that well? 

3. Scarlett Moffatt

Scarlett Moffat absolutely rocked the red carpet in this pink two-piece suit before hosting the awards. 

An unusual choice, the Goggle Box star totally stood out in the sea of formal dresses for all the right reasons. 

4. Pixie Lott

Pixie Lott went for a subtle ruffle in this flare hemmed dress and looked gorgeous as usual. 

The singer was left denying pregnancy rumours after fans thought that this dress gave her a teeny tiny baby bump. 

5. Michelle Keegan

Michelle Keegan channelled Melania Trump's inauguration look in a subtly structured white dress.

The naturally beautiful actress accessorised with a gold box clutch, wavy locks and her gorgeous husband Mark Wright. 

6. Myleene Klass

Myleene Klass rocked a Littlewoods lace dress on the red carpet, proving that high street style can definitely work for all occasions.

The intricate frock complimented the star's chic updo and created an overall flawless ensemble. 

7. Holly Willoughby

Holly Willoughby completely stole the show in this bespoke, pink plunging gown.

The TV presented proved that she's literally one of the girls by borrowing a pair of shoes from pal Rochelle Humes, and added some extra drama will Hollywood waves.

Who rocked the best look? They all look absolutely amazing in our opinion. 



Irish actor Aidan Turner won the Impact/ TV Moment of the Year for his turn as rogue mine owner and farmer in the hit BBC series Poldark. 

Even though the show did not pick up a gong for Best New Drama and Aidan lost out to Suranne Jones in Doctor Foster for Best Drama Performance, the actor was chuffed if not 'slightly confused' by the win. 

However, we are not confused. 

Audiences were certainly impacted by Aidan's brilliant acting, brooding good looks and well… his abs. 

"I'm not sure why I'm here, I'm glad to be, and who knows, this might be the only one I get so I'm delighted," said the 32-year-old as he accepted his award. 

He did however reference THAT scything scene in which we see a sweaty, topless Poldark working the fields that pretty much sent the internet into a tizzy. 

"I guess the scything scenes kind of speak for themselves, there's little to say there, but the rest of the cast, it's such a delight to be in this show, we have such talented people."

The one surprise of the night perhaps is The Big Bang Theory taking home the International Award over hot favourite Game of Thrones

Ant & Dec once again beat out Graham Norton to take home the TV Presenter of the Year award. 

Shayne Ward took home best newcomer for his role in Corrie while Gogglebox won best factual entertainment. 

The Great British Bake Off and Strictly Come Dancing also took home awards. 


Well, we weren't expecting this to come out on the red carpet tonight.

Suranne Jones, of Doctor Foster fame, has very publicly revealed she is pregnant.

The actress, who married in a secret ceremony last year to Laurence Akers, stepped out on the red carpet with a full and beautiful baby bump.

The Corrie alum is up for the Best Drama Performance at tonight's National Television Awards in London. 

We're hoping she wins, but if not, she sure made a stunning baby bump debut. 


The TV's small screen queens came out in force for the National Television Awards in London tonight.

And one thing's for sure, the style did not disappoint. We look the five best dressed stars and their FAB outfits:

1. Emma Willis

Even with a baby bump, Emma looks gorgeous tonight in a navy and floral midi dress.


2. Vogue Williams

Vogue is not letting the Irish ladies down. Stepping out in a blue halter dress and red heels, we're giving her major style points.


3. Jorgie Porter

This has to be one of our fave outfits. Classic and sexy, Hollyoak's Jorgie did not disappoint.


4. Michelle Keegan

Rocking it on the red carpet with her hubby, Michelle flaunted her taut tummy with this cut-out two-piece.


5. Jessica Wright

Keeping the TOWIE standards high, Jessica looked very chic tonight. And we're loving the eclectic blue peeking out from her dress. 


Cheryl Fernandez-Versini was visibly absent from the National Television Awards last night, at which The X Factor won a Best Talent Show award.

Although the star gave no reason for not attending the awards, she took to Twitter to slam those who had been making assumptions about her absence.

"People should never jump to conclusions about others .. You never know what they may be dealing with #thatsall," she wrote, in what was her first time on Twitter in three weeks.

Shortly after, the X Factor judge tweeted again to congratulate her colleagues on their win, posting a throwback picture of herself, Mel B and Louis Walsh with the caption, "Congratulations to #Xf for winning the NTA last night!!! Woohoo #xf2014"

Yesterday's cryptic tweet isn't the first time Cheryl has lashed out on social media – when an Instagram fan accused her of miming on her X Factor performance late last year, she responded by saying, "Don’t mug yourself on my page. It’s not cute. Go teach yourself some dance instead.” Ouch!

The star hasn't been seen in public since last month, and although we reckon she is just taking some down time following a busy few months on The X Factor, we hope she is okay all the same.



TOWIE star Ferne McCann took to Twitter this morning to voice some worrying thoughts.

The 24 year old is usually full of confidence, but it seems she has her own fair share of body image issues too. After a heavy night at the National Television Awards, Ferne was obviously feeling a bit low, as she shocked fans by asking them if they thought she needed cosmetic surgery.

"Do you think if I had work done to my face it would make me beautiful?," the star wrote. "I can't stop looking at other beaut girls on insta. Feeling blue."

Ferne has since deleted the tweet, but not before fans responded in their droves. Some were quick to reassure Ferne that she had nothing to worry about:

But others weren't so kind:

Ouch! The star's two-tone skater dress from Asos got a VERY mixed reaction on the NTA red carpet last night, with many dubbing Ferne the worst dressed, so that may have had something to do with her worries.

Last night was the star's first public appearance since she was rushed to hospital last week after collapsing at the gym. "I haven't had the results but I'm just glad that I'm feeling better," she told OK! magazine at the awards. 

Whatever about her choice of dress, we're glad to see her looking healthy and on the mend!


Charlotte Crosby has never been a wallflower, but we seriously hope she's joking with these latest comments!

Geordie Shore is up for a Multichannel award at tonight's National Television Awards in London, and she has made some pretty wild claims about what she and her cast members will do if they win, saying they have every intention of getting drunk and making a show of themselves.

"We’re going to get properly mortal and embarrass ourselves. If we win it would be crazy. If they call our names out as the winner there will be utter chaos. I’ll personally pull a moony on stage and may even get naked," she told the Daily Star.

Jaysis, Charlotte!

The 24-year-old recently launched a best-selling fitness DVD after spending months overhauling her image with an extreme diet and fitness regime. But tonight she's obviously planning to ditch the diet for a few hours and have some celebratory drinks.

"We’ll run on the stage and by that time we’ll be p**sed already," said Charlotte. And if Geordie Shore doesn't win, Charlotte reckons things will really "kick off."

We'll have to tune in for that!
