Channing Tatum is swapping his Hollywood lifestyle for the British woods, after moving to the Suffolk countryside with his girlfriend; singing sensation Jessie J.

The couple have been dating since last September, and have taken their relationship to the next level by moving to picturesque Bury St Edmonds in Ed Sheeran's home town.

They've been spending more and more time in the UK, since Jessie J appeared as a coach on The Voice Kids and Tatum promoting his Magic Mike stage show in London's West End.

Their luxury rented mansion has a pool, endless gardens and tennis courts and boasts famous neighbours like supermodel Claudia Schiffer and Matthew Vaughn.

A source close to the singer told The Sun: “Jessie and Channing’s relationship has been going from strength to strength.

“They still spend a lot of time in America, but when they’re in the UK they find London quite intense so enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the countryside," the source said.

“The property they’ve been using suits them down to the ground as it’s not too far from London, but it’s really relaxing and away from all the noise so they can spend quality time together.”

Reports say Channing will now split his time between the UK and Los Angeles in order to see his daughter, Everly. He shares the six-year-old with his ex-wife, Jenna Dewan.

Tatum revealed this week that he's removing himself from social media, writing to his 17.4 million followers; “I’m gonna take a break and come off socials for a minute. I’ve been trying to get inspired and create again.

“And to be honest I don’t really feel, or at least I haven’t felt very creative on social in the last couple years now. I’m gonna go and be just in the real world for a while and off my phone. I’ll probably come back at some point.”

Singer-songwriting sensation Jessie J has announced on Instagram that she is taking a break from social media following the heartbreaking death of her bodyguard.

In the lengthy post, she writes that she would like to focus on being "present" with those whom she loves, citing "some unexpected heavy personal stuff" as the reason for her break. 

"When sadness hits it's important we embrace it, so it doesn't define us. I have to practice on myself what I talk about in stage and in my music too. In a good way."

The Price Tag singer disclosed that her security team member, Dave, passed away very suddenly a few weeks ago. He was part of her team for four years, and the singer described him as "family".

The 30-year-old singer admitted that it was finally time to "practice on myself what I talk about" through her music and while performing.

Announcing that the break would be from all social media for a considerable length of time, she finished by writing;

"Want to live in the moment as much as I can and not through my phone. I love you all. Happy new year. The year of living the best life for you!"

She was undeniably close with her bodyguard, Dave. She shared images of him via her Instagram account, describing him as a loving father and a man of immense kindness

She captioned another post;

"I wrote this because I want everyone to remember the man you were. You were a gentle giant with a heart so big everyone felt it. I love you so much. We were supposed to meet for hot chocolate next week. 

"I miss you. I will see you on the other side one day. Rest easy Dave, give your Dad a hug from me"

The circumstances around his death are unclear, but it's obvious just how heartbroken Jessie J is. 

Our deepest condolences to the singer, as well as Dave's family. 

We hope she gains the peace she deeply needs during her social media hiatus. 


After finding fame as a contestant on The X Factor, it looks like Olly Murs has swapped allegiances by joining rival talent show, The Voice.

Rumours about the singer's involvement with the show began circulating late last week, and today, producers finally confirmed that Olly has been recruited as a judge for the 2018 series.

Replacing Gavin Rossdale, the singer will take his place in the famous red chair alongside an all-star panel comprising of will.i.am, Tom Jones and Jennifer Hudson.

Murs said: “I’m absolutely buzzing about being a coach on The Voice UK and can’t wait to sit in the big red chair alongside will, Jennifer and Tom.

“I’m excited to mentor new artists and without doubt I’m in it to win!”

Speaking about the new addition, will.i.am said: “I’m excited to sit alongside Jennifer and Tom again this year, and I know that Olly will add a fun new twist to this year’s coaches’ team.”

However, not everyone is thrilled about Olly's latest career move.

X Factor boss, Simon Cowell, is said to be less than impressed that the star has taken a position on the rival show – especially after he left the X Factor in 2015 claiming he wanted to focus on his music.

The new series of The Voice UK will air on ITV early next year.


Una Healy has fast become the favourite judge on The Voice of Ireland, and now the flame-haired beauty is about to debut a solo track.

RTÉ took to Instagram earlier to say they were excited to hear Una's new song on the singing contest this weekend.

“Excited to hear @UnaHealy’s new solo material in her live performance this Sunday on The Voice of Ireland! #rtethevoice".

Una opened up about her solo career lately, telling Goss about her new album: “It’s a singer-song-writer style, but because I have done so much pop with The Saturdays, there’s definitely influences of that too,” she said.

“I wrote the songs myself and I’m putting it together. It’s more organic than anything I’ve done before with the band.”


If anyone is in love, it's Blake Shelton. The Voice judge couldn't help but gush about his new flame on live TV.

Last night marked the The Voice's first live show since Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton announced they are dating, which gave viewers front row seats to witness the chemistry between the pair. 

In the TMZ video below, Blake can't help but support his new girlfriend as her team battled Adam Levine's. 

"Team Gwen is whippin' the crap out of Team Adam tonight," Blake said. "It's fun to see Gwen whip the crap out of Adam tonight. It makes me so happy."

The host of the show, Carson Daly, kept things very professional (i.e. boring) and didn't address the news of the new hot couple – but it was clear they are head over heels for each other. 

Even though there was no PDA, Blake continued to support Gwen all night as she giggled her way through the show. 


The next season of The Voice UK could very well be its last, according to various sources inside the BBC.

Despite growing viewership figures – almost seven million people tuned in for the series four finale – it's believed the show may be dropped to cut costs.

Senior executives have reportedly been warned not to get into a "bidding war" for the show with ITV, amid mounting pressure to make budget cuts.

"The BBC has had no choice but to walk away in the face of all the cuts being made," a source told The Mirror.

"It’s a sad day, because it’s a BBC show."

While the show is likely not to be produced by the BBC from 2016 on, it could of course be picked up by ITV, home of The X Factor and I'm A Celebrity.

ITV are already believed to have made an offer, and a three-year deal is expected to be signed within days, with bosses there promising to match the €14million-a-series costs.

The fifth season of The Voice kicks off in January on BBC One, with will.i.am, Paloma Faith, Boy George and Ricky Wilson all lined up as coaches.

Back in August, the BBC was forced to apologise publicly to former coach Tom Jones, after he was axed from the judging panel without warning.

The singing legend took to social media to express his anger, accusing producers of "sub-standard behaviour."

Former Director of Television for the BBC, Danny Cohen, later said he was "truly sorry" for any upset caused.



Admit it, there has been at least one moment in your life when you’ve caught yourself singing along with your favourite popstar and thought ‘maybe I do have a great voice after all.’

Well, now if your chance to up your game and give none other than Christina Aguilera a run for her money.

Ok, maybe not exactly because Christina’s voice is pretty incredible and we reckon a tough one to beat, but the songstress is more than willing to offer hopefuls some expert guidance.

A former coach on The Voice, Christina is now lending her musical talents to users of MasterClass.com, a website that gives online singing lessons.

"I'm excited MasterClass has given me the opportunity to truly share all I have learned about my craft with the world. Coaching in this capacity not only gives me a chance to connect with my fans but lets me explore one of my true passions," Christina said in a statement.

For €80 users will have access to interactive exercises, video lessons and other learning materials with a certain Christina style.

Production for Christina’s classes starts this month and will be available to users in a number of weeks according to Access Hollywood.

Christina is not the only star sharing her gifts with the online world. Serena Williams, Usher and famed photographer Annie Leibovitz have all lent their talents to the site.

We just wonder how many lessons it will take before we can all do this with confidence?


The Voice UK returns for a fifth season early next year, but one notable face will be missing from the judging panel… Welsh music legend Tom Jones.

Tom took to Facebook earlier this month to express his disappointment after he was abruptly axed from the show in favour of Boy George, something the BBC informed him of just 24 hours before the new line-up went public.

While the broadcasting company first defended their decision, saying "no role was ever promised," one BBC director has spoken out to apologise to the singer.

"I've got huge respect for Tom and I'm truly sorry he's upset, because I am a big fan of his," BBC's director of television Danny Cohen said. "I think he's a gentleman, I think he's an extraordinary figure in music and you'll have seen the huge respect that all of the artists have had for him on The Voice throughout."

Danny added that he hoped Tom would be returning for a new project with the BBC "very soon."

In his original statement on Facebook, Tom accused BBC execs of "sub-standard behaviour" for not informing him of the line-up changes well ahead of time. 

"In good faith, as part of the team, I’d put the time in my schedule to be involved in Series 5, as I’ve done so for the last 4 years. I’ve supported the show and the BBC since the beginning. I was told yesterday, with no consultation or conversation of any kind, that I would not be returning," he explained.

"Having been through plenty of transformations throughout the years, I support and admire creative change. But being informed, as a matter of duty and respect, is an important part of creative relationships. This sub-standard behaviour from the executives is very disappointing."

Former coaches will.i.am and Ricky Wilson will return to the line-up this year, with Paloma Faith and Boy George taking over from Rita Ora and Tom.


Rihanna has just gone and secured herself a place on American version of the talent show, The Voice. 

And so we all assumed that mean she'd be a judge. 

NBC revealed the news this week that the singer will be appearing on the forthcoming new season of the show.

However – and here comes the twist, the role is not one of a judge, but she will serve as a "key advisor" to judges Gwen Stefani, Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, and Pharrell Williams.

Rihanna will be in good company though: former advisors include Alicia Keys and Miranda Lambert.

"This is one of music's true supervisors coming on board to influence the lives and careers of the performers," NBC said in the press release. 

The show is to air its ninth season from next month and we're hoping with Rihanna on board it will produce some AMAZING super stars. 


Some sad news coming from across the pond today as it's been confirmed that singer Blake Shelton is splitting from his wife of four years, Miranda Lambert.

Blake, known for his role as a judge on The Voice US alongside Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera and Pharrell among others, announced the news this evening to AP via a joint statement with Miranda. 

"This is not the future we envisioned," the statement reads. "And it is with heavy hearts that we move forward separately." The couple also asked that their privacy be respected at this no doubt difficult time, adding, "We are real people, with real lives, with real families, friends and colleagues. Therefore, we kindly ask for privacy and compassion concerning this very personal matter."

Blake and Miranda had their fourth wedding anniversary just two months ago, but given today's divorce announcement it seems like things may have been rocky for some time before that.

TMZ first reported on the divorce rumours earlier today, before any statement was released. It seems the pair filed their divorce documents quite some time ago, and a judge is expected to officially end the marriage today.

The couple, both country singers, married in Texas in 2011. This will be Blake's second divorce, after he split from his first wife Kaynette Gern in 2006.

Neither Blake or Miranda have addressed the split on social media as yet, though they have both been active on Twitter over the past 24 hours.



Adam Levine's act lost out as the winner of The Voice US earlier this week, but the singer has bigger things to be getting annoyed about, it seems.

Pop star Joe Jonas headed along to the finale of The Voice on Tuesday, and decided to "thank" Adam via Instagram with a very racy picture indeed.

Adam's face has been plastered on ads for ProActiv skincare all over the US lately, and Joe took advantage of a very well-placed finger to poke some fun at the Maroon 5 frontman.

Need we say more?

The innuendo-laden photo was captioned, "Fun time last night at The Voice thanks Adam."

Adam has yet to respond to the social media prank, but we reckon he won't be long in getting his own back.

One thing's for sure… we won't be able to look at that ad the same way EVER again!


It was almost as invigorating as the show itself: tuning in to see what The Voice Of Ireland judges Una Foden and Rachel Stevens were wearing.

But as the RTE talent show wraps up for another season, we’re still left with heaps of seriously stylish memories, not to mention plenty of fashion-inspiration for the forthcoming season.

Stylist-to-the-stars Ingrid Hoey has been at the helm of the striking looks sported by both Una and Rachel – keeping fans of the show updated on her Twitter and Instagram accounts as the series progressed.  

Ingrid Hoey master-minded The Voice looks

Speaking exclusively to SHEmazing! Ingrid says that, thankfully, over the course of the six live Voice airings when anything can happen, there were no last-minute style disasters. And she says that far from being divas, the celebrity judges were incredibly easy to work with. “They both really enjoy fashion and dressing up,” she explains. “So each week we just had lots of fun deciding the looks and it was a total pleasure to work with both of them.”

It’s tough to pick a single stand-out piece, but when pushed Ingrid reveals: “Rachel's favourite look for me was the Umit Kutluk dress she wore in the semi finals – it just had a gorgeous finish to it and fitted perfectly.

“My favourite look for Una was the Simone Rocha dress from Havana boutique in Donnybrook,” she adds. “It was totally different for her.”

So until next year – or least until Cheryl returns to the X Factor judging panel in the autumn – here we round-up the attire that demanded attention during The Voice Of Ireland…


Una looked divine in this beautiful Simone Rocha floral jacquard dress from her SS15 collection. Sourced from Havana boutique in Donnybrook, you can also get it on mytheresa.com for a cool €1,750. We’re particularly coveting the draped hemline and nipped-in waist. Una wore it with jewellery from Chupi and River Island shoes.

Rachel mixed things up three weeks ago with a Joanne Hynes corset teamed with Pinko trousers, sourced from Harvey Nicks in Dundrum. The shoes were Buffalo, while the jewellery is from Loulerie

Rachel proves that it's not all about dresses

Una saved the best until last in her sweeping Umit Kutluk dress in black, teamed with strappy Buffalo sandals – a steal at €128 from Arnotts – and jewellery sourced from Knightsbridge

Two weeks ago, Ms Stevens was wearing this piece from the current collection at Self-Portrait, available in BT2s. Again, she completed the look with Buffalo shoes and Loulerie jewellery. 

This collared dress from Self-Portrait was spot-on

Una also opted for Umit Kutluk two weeks ago, this time donning a red and black knee-length lace dress with a mesh hem. She kept her accessories simple, but opted for gold Louboutin sandals, which are priced at €525.

For yesterday’s final, Rachel wore a full-length dress from H&M – which has unfortunately now sold out. Her earrings are from Loulerie.

And let’s not forget about Kathryn: the presenter certainly held her own among the popstars in a series of stunning outfits, also master-minded by Ingrid. Her pink dress is from Ted Baker, Karen Millen is responsible for the black and red number, while the white gown comes from Pinko.
