How old is Michael Ball, when did he meet Alfie Boe and who is his partner Cathy McGowan?

But how old is he, how did he meet Alfie Boe and who is his partner Cathy? We've got the lowdown…

How old is Michael Ball and when did he start his career?

Michael Ball is a 56-year-old actor, singer and broadcaster from Worcestershire.

As a teenager Ball joined a youth theatre, then studied at Guildford School of Acting.

His first role was in Godspell in Aberystwyth, but he got his first major break in The Pirate of Penzance in Manchester.

He made his West End debut in 1985 playing Marius in the original production of Les Miserables in London.

He later went on to play Raoul in The Phantom Of The Opera before going on to represent the UK in the 1992 Eurovision Song Contest – where he finished in second place with the song One Step Out Of Time.

More recently, Michael has taken stage roles in shows like Hairspray and Sweeney Todd.

In July 2018, he was unveiled alongside Sara Cox as the new hosts of This Morning on Fridays with the pair standing in for Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford.

When did Michael Ball meet Alfie Boe?

Michael, who was appointed an OBE in 2015 for his services to musical theatre, met Alfie Boe, 44, when they were co-stars in a production of the musical Kismet in London.

Since then, they have forged somewhat of a musical “bromance” and featured in a TV special, singing hits from musicals.

The show, Ball And Boe Back Together, was a one-off musical special with a studio audience and saw songs like As If We Never Said Goodbye from Sunset Boulevard, He Lives In You from The Lion King, The Prayer and You're The Voice – with the duo accompanied by a 28-piece orchestra.

The pair also had a "sing-off" as they pitted their singing abilities against each other when singing "unexpected musical numbers".

Special guests singer-songwriter Imelda May and Jason Manford also appeared on the show.

Who is Michael's other half?

Michael lives with his partner Cathy McGowan, 73, the former presenter of Ready Steady Go!

The pair first met in 1989 when Cathy was an entertainment reporter for the BBC and she interviewed him during rehearsals for musical Aspects Of Love.

The couple have lived together since 1992 and, in 2000, Cathy saved Michael's life by dragging him out of a house fire.

What are Michael's biggest songs?

As well as presenting various Radio Two shows since 2008, and standing in for Ken Bruce occasionally, Michael, who is known for his tremulous vocal stylings, has released numerous hits.

Some of Michael's most memorable hits include Love Changes Everything (1989), One Step Out Of Time (1992), From Here To Eternity (1994) and (Something Inside) So Strong (1996).

Katie Price faces bankruptcy hearing today where she is expected to announce she's broke and go bankrupt

In footage filmed last week, Katie said she had no choice – but placed the blame for her financial ruin squarely at the feet of her exes.

In emotional scenes due to air on TV hit My Crazy Life, Pricey put on a brave face, saying: "I will be out of bankruptcy in a year. Its not that bad.

"I’ve got nothing to be ashamed of anymore. Loads of people go through it like me. It's just a matter of going through the motions. This is what has to be."

While it's unclear if she is actually bankrupt, or if the scenes were dramatised for her show, we can reveal the star, who was once worth £45 million, has turned to twice-bankrupt pal Kerry Katona for advice.

Katie is due to appear on court today  – where it is understood she will say she can't keep up the repayments needed to dig her out of debt.


A source close to the star confirmed: "As far as we understand, she can't keep up with the repayments required to get her out of debt – she has been desperately chasing her tail.

"She hoped to outrun it but sadly the outcome was inevitable. Once all the figures were totted up it apparently became clear her outgoings – loans, mortgage, debts and taxes – outweighed her projected income."

The insider added: "Going on her current earnings, it will take Katie five years to be financially viable again."

And Pricey puts the blame for her imminent bankruptcy on her famous exes – who include Peter Andre, Alex Reid and Kieran Hayler.


She insisted that funding her exes' lavish lifestyles with cars, watches, luxury holidays and homes left her finances in tatters.

The star also said that she has never had any help with balancing the books and has had to do it all herself.

But Kieran told the My Crazy Life cameras: "Katie is never in the wrong – its always someone else that's done it to her."

The source added that Katie is far from blameless, saying: “It all went wrong when Peter and other people stopped paying her bills and giving Katie things for free.

"Katie was never one to pay anything on time either. She ended up with CCJs [county court judgements] coming out of her ears.

"Her credit rating is terrible too, and soon to be totally wiped out. She also can no longer be a director of any companies."

Katie narrowly avoided bankruptcy in October when she submitted a last-gasp proposal to rescue her finances.

But with her next bankruptcy hearing on Tuesday looming, it appears poor Katie has finally thrown in the towel.

Emmerdale's Maya Stepney makes an escape plan after kissing Jacob Gallagher

Emmerdale‘s Maya Stepney makes a big decision over her future in the village tonight (December 4) following her disturbing behaviour towards Jacob Gallagher.

Maya (Louisa Clein) made a move on her 15-year-old student in last night’s episode, kissing him before pulling away and insisting it was a mistake.

Tuesday’s visit to the village sees Maya focus on damage control as she tries to make sure that Jacob (Joe-Warren Plant) doesn’t tell anyone what happened.

When they next see each other, Maya manipulates Jacob and urges him to keep quiet about the kiss for everyone’s sake.

Maya points out that she could lose her job at the school if anyone found out, leaving Jacob with conflicting emotions as he wonders what to do next.

Fearing that it’s only a matter of time before Jacob tells all if they’re living under the same roof, Maya sacrifices her ongoing relationship with his stepdad David Metcalfe (Matthew Wolfenden).

Maya tells David that it’s time for her to move out, leaving him baffled as he thought that things were going well between them.

As David searches for answers over what’s really going on, is it only a matter of time before he uncovers the truth?

Emmerdale‘s cast and production team have been working alongside Barnardo’s on this storyline and have also met with young survivors of sexual abuse.

Show producer Laura Shaw commented: “It was important for us to tell this storyline authentically, so we approached Barnardo’s for advice on scripts and character behaviour.

“Our researchers, story team – along with actors Louisa, Matthew and Joe-Warren – met with Barnardo’s experts and young men who have been supported by the charity.

“We met some incredible individuals and were moved by their courage and willingness to help us tell this story sensitively. Hopefully it will make young people and their parents more aware of these issues and their impact.”

Emmerdale airs these scenes tonight at 7pm on ITV.

Captain Marvel trailer 2 breakdown – Skrulls, Kree, and a classic Nick Fury

The new trailer reuses and recontextualises a lot of the unanswered questions from the first teaser so let's dive in with the full breakdown of what we have learnt…

1. Why Captain Marvel punched an old lady

The first teaser included a somewhat controversial sequence in which the mighty Captain Marvel fiercely struck an elderly female passenger on board the LA subway.

The scene stirred up quite the debate behind the seemingly random assault, but Marvel fans pointed out the old lady was most likely an alien shapeshifter, a Skrull.

Seemingly keen to confirm that their hero wasn't a random thug, the new trailer reveals an extended action sequence of the scene in which the old lady fights back with surprising strength.

A voiceover from Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury accompanies the brawl in which he says, "So Skrulls are the bad guys," telling viewers all they need to know.


2. Ronan returns and the Skrull threat is revealed

Ronan the Accuser was last seen as the primary antagonist to Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy back in 2014 when he was ultimately destroyed by the power stone.

Then a deranged Kree outcast, he returns 30 years prior in Captain Marvel to team up with Skrull and primary villain Talos to provoke a galactic war between the two races.

It's been confirmed that Talos had already infiltrated S.H.I.E.L.D and is operating as Nick Fury's supervisor and in the trailer, he is seen leading a team against Captain Marvel.

The trailer also reveals the Skrulls play a part in Captain Marvel's MCU origin as a battered and bruised Carol Danvers is shot down in her jet upon a battle between Kree and Skrulls.



3. Who is Jude Law and how powerful is Captain Marvel?

Jude Law was originally reported to be playing the part of Mar-Vell but it's looking increasingly likely to be a ruse and that he's actually set to play the Kree villain Yon-Rogg.

One popular theory exists that Carol Danvers amnesia isn't an accident but rather that Yon-Rogg has been deliberately manipulating her memories to serve the Krees.

In one of his scenes, he warns Captain marvel that she isn't as powerful as she thinks she is however latter scenes in the trailer suggests he's probably very wrong indeed.

The trailer provides the first extended look at Captain Marvel's Binary form, in which she's shown to be wielding enough power to shoot spaceships out of the sky.

4. Goose the Flerken

The trailer finishes with Nick Fury marvelling over Captain Marvel's cat Goose, an obvious reference to Top Gun.

Carol's pet in the comics is actually called Chewie and it is yet to be revealed why Marvel decided to rename the cat for this film.

Back in 2014, it was discovered that she was the last of an alien race known as the Flerkens, whose bodies contain interdimensional portals.

One sad theory would has emerged that the cat may be linked to why Nick Fury eventually loses his eye, either by attacking him or Fury is injured defending the cat he's obessed with.

When is Captain Marvel out?

The twenty-first film in the epic Marvel Cinematic Universe will be released in the UK on March 8, 2019.

Captain Marvel is set in the 90s which places it before Iron Man, which was released in 2008 and was the first movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

It showcases former US Air Force pilot Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) who gained superpowers when her DNA became fused with an alien's during an accident.

However, the film will NOT be an origin story for the character as the movie will begin with Carol already in possession of her cosmic powers.

After joining Starforce, an elite Kree military team, Carol returns to Earth only to find herself caught centre of an intergalactic conflict between two alien worlds.

Who is Alex Bain's girlfriend Levi Selby? High school sweetheart of Corrie star and mother of their daughter Lydia Rose

Here's everything you need to know about the new mum after the couple welcomed their daughter.

Who is Alex Bain's girlfriend Levi Selby?

Levi Selby, 16, is the girlfriend of Corrie actor Alex Bain. 

She sat her GCSEs this year in Blackburn.

In April 2017, she started dating the soap star who plays Simon Barlow in Coronation Street. 

It is not believed that the couple attended the same school.

Does she have any children?

Levi Selby announced her pregnancy in May 2018 by posting a picture of her 12-week scan on social media.

A source said: “Alex has been telling everyone he’s going to be a father. He isn’t keeping it a secret.

“It’s hard to tell if he’s happy about it or not but he’s definitely not ashamed of it.

“But some people have been saying how young he is to be having a baby.

“It’s only happened to one other person at his school in recent years so it is pretty shocking.”

On December 3, The Sun Online exclusively revealed that they had welcomed a baby girl named Lydia-Rose.

 

What were the rumours that Alex Bain and Levi Selby had split?

On July 14, 2018, Levi sparked rumours that she'd split from Alex after posting another pic of the baby scan on Facebook.

She wrote: "Me and my little girl from now on. Can't wait to start my life with her."

However, a source told The Sun that the couple had been spotted walking happily hand in hand in Blackburn that same day.

On August 5, 2018, Alex denied splitting from his pregnant girlfriend and revealed his excitement at the birth of his daughter Lydia Rose in December.

Alex said: “I’m still with my girlfriend, and can’t wait to have my own little family!”.

A source said: “They’ve been through a bad patch but are now stronger than ever and so excited to meet their baby.

“It feels even more real now they’ve got a name. They just want to shout it from the rooftops.”

‘Shang-Chi’ to Be Marvel’s First Asian-Led Superhero Film

AceShowbiz
Marvel Studios is broadening the diversity of its superhero film franchises with a new movie focusing on an Asian lead. Hoping to repeat the success of this year’s “Black Panther“, the studio has reportedly been working on a “Shang-Chi” feature film adaptation that will focus on the “Master of Kung Fu”.

According to Deadline, Marvel is fast-tracking the project with Chinese-American scribe Dave Callaham, who co-wrote “Wonder Woman 1984“, tapped to write the screenplay. No director is attached just yet, but the studio is said to be looking at a number of Asian and Asian-American directors who will potentially direct the movie.


“Shang-Chi” will be Marvel’s first superhero movie tentpole franchise with an Asian protagonist. The site reports that Marvel’s goal with the new project is to “introduce a new hero who blends Asian and Asian American themes, crafted by Asian and Asian American filmmakers.”

Shang-Chi was created by Steve Englehart and Thanos creator Jim Starlin and debuted in 1973’s “Special Marvel Edition” No. 15. In the comics, he is described as the son of infamous pulp villain Fu Manchu, who trained him to become a martial artist assassin. Against his father’s wish, he becomes a superhero instead.

He has been a member of The Avengers and Heroes for Hire, and did several crossovers with other Marvel martial artists, including White Tiger, Iron Fist and the Daughters of the Dragon (Colleen Wing and Misty Knight).

The Shang-Chi movie will be a proper response to public’s outcry after Netflix’s now-canceled series “Marvel’s Iron Fist” cast a white man, Finn Jones, in the lead role, who is known as the greatest champion of martial arts.

The first season of the series received majorly negative reviews from critics, but it showed improvement in the second season with a 33% increase in approval ratings on Rotten Tomatoes. Nevertheless, the show was canceled by Netflix after only two seasons.

Filming began in New Orleans this past February, and now the movie finally has a release date.

“It feels real and raw,” Sixx said about the tunes on Twitter on October 12.

“Everybody is playing like mad and the songs crush. [Producer] Bob Rock brought the sounds. Plus we have a surprise that will confirm that we’re outta our minds.”

Hollywood Bad Boys – Mötley Crüe

A post shared by Mötley Crüe (@motleycrue) on

These recordings will mark the Crue’s first new music since the 2015 single “All Bad Things,” which was the same year the rock icons played the final shows of their farewell tour. Yes, the quartet hung up their touring boots for good three years ago — and they even signed official contracts saying that they will never hit the road all together as Motley Crue ever again. But they never said they wouldn’t create new music as a foursome.

Meanwhile, bass player Sixx is also working on an adaptation of his 2007 autobiography, The Heroin Diaries: A Year in the Life of a Shattered Rock Star, for the Broadway stage.
