LOVE Island’s CHRIS HUGHES says he is happier WITHOUT the abs that made him one of telly’s most lusted-after men. The reality star admits he has found it “difficult” to stay in shape over lockdown . Farmer-turned-influencer Chris — who stripped off to take an ice bath live on ITV Racing last month — said: “Some days all I want to do is just eat. “When I did that ice bath challenge I was like, ‘God, my body does not look like it did four years ago in Love Island’. “But I’m happy in my own skin. It doesn’t make me any less happy with what I am now.” Unlike the stereotypical Love Islander, Chris hates going to the gym and won’t work out for very long. He said: “If I’ve got a holiday coming up I might get in the gym for a month beforehand. “But I don’t really enjoy going, if I’m honest. I just occasionally set foot in there for about 20 minutes and get out.” He also said it “has not been easy” being alone in lockdown after splitting up from former Little Mix … [Read more...] about Love Island’s Chris Hughes says he’s happier without abs after packing on pounds over lockdown

BIG Brother star Nikki Grahame’s sudden death has sparked a full internal investigation at Dorset County Hospital as her family believe she was discharged too early for anorexia treatment. Nikki , who passed away earlier this month aged 38, spent three weeks in Dorset County Hospital, Dorchester, before leaving on April 9. Her body was found the following day at her London home. She had been scheduled to start “more relaxed” private treatment, thanks to funds raised on her GoFundMe page , which was set up by her pals. A spokeswoman for Dorset County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust told the Sun: “Staff at the Trust were deeply saddened to learn of the death of Miss Grahame, and our thoughts are with the family and friends of Miss Grahame at this very difficult time. “A full internal investigation into the circumstances of Miss Grahame’s death is currently underway.

If you've ever yearned to own something from out of this world, here's your chance. On Oct. 14 in Manhattan, fragments of Mars , the moon and asteroids that have fallen to Earth go up for sale, in what auction house Heritage Auctions is billing as the largest public meteorite auction ever held. More than 125 items are for sale, a number of which have no minimum bid attached. The growing market for meteorites has driven the emergence of a meteorite prospecting industry in northwestern Africa and Oman, but even as people scour the deserts for meteorites, rocks from space remain among the most rare things on Earth. Taken together, every single meteorite known to exist would weigh significantly less than the world’s annual output of gold, said Darryl Pitt, the meteorite consultant for the auction. Nearly all known meteorites originate in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter, and research tied a few back to the large asteroid Vesta . Vesta's surface bears evidence of … [Read more...] about Far Out! Meteorites From Mars & Moon Going Up For Sale
It has the most powerful and highest-revving combustion engine of any Ferrari road car. After what looked like an endless string of rumors and spy photos, the hotter 812 Superfast is finally here. Well, almost. Ferrari has released a few images and preliminary technical specifications prior to a full debut scheduled to take place on May 5 – thus confirming a rumor we first heard on the FerrariChat forums . We will have to wait for the debut in two weeks' time to discover the car's official name as Maranello is currently referring to the amped-up 812 simply as a "special version" (Versione Speciale). The VS looks far more aggressive than the "standard" Superfast while remaining as beautiful as a modern Prancing Horse should be.

The sister of a woman who was raped and drowned has called on the parole board to keep her murderer behind bars. Michael Wade was jailed for life for raping vulnerable mum Jean Whitfield before drowning her in a bath at her home.

This article was originally published at The Conversation. The publication contributed the article to Live Science's Expert Voices: Op-Ed & Insights. We have only just moved into May and despite being seven months away from next summer in the southern hemisphere, climate researchers are seeing the beginnings of what could be the most powerful El Niño event since 1997/98. An El Niño is a change in Pacific Ocean and atmosphere that typically causes drought, extreme heat and bushfires in Australia. Last year was a neutral El Niño and we have been surprisingly lucky with only a few small El Niño ’s since the 21st century started, despite having two of the hottest years on record globally in 2005 and 2010 . The last really big El Niño was in 1997/98. It is no coincidence that 1998 is the only remaining year from the past century that still sits in the top 10 for the hottest years, globally, on record. By itself, research shows an El Niño event can raise … [Read more...] about Are We Heading for a Worrying Super El Niño?
BRUSSELS — British Prime Minister David Cameron has won a hard-fought deal for a less intrusive European Union after two days of tense talks with EU leaders, a commitment he said he needed to persuade UK voters the country should stay in the bloc.
