Spoilers: The police are on the hunt for Robert and Aaron in Emmerdale tonight

Robert Sugden (Ryan Hawley) and Aaron Dingle (Danny Miller) were forced to take drastic action in Emmerdale last night, after they discovered that rapist Lee had died in hospital. As a result, Robert knew he’d risk being charged with murder, and thus he resolved to flee the village with husband Aaron at his side. However, things get a tad more complicated tonight, when the police begin asking questions.

Last night, an emotional Victoria informed her brother that Lee had died. Robert was devastated, as he knew the rapist’s death could result in him being charged with murder and thus have to spend life in prison.

As Robert discussed his options, Liv provided him with an answer, as she suggested that he could go on the run with Aaron.

After some deliberation, they agreed to do just that and Aaron headed off to inform mum Chas (Lucy Pargeter) of his plan and, although she was horrified at the prospect of losing her son, she ultimately bid him farewell, as both he and Robert drove off to start their new life together.

However, the reality of the situation will no doubt hit those who remained behind in the village during tonight’s episode, as the police begin to ask questions.

With Lee having only recently died, the police are sure to put two and two together when they realise that Robert and Aaron have vanished.

The question is: will Robert and Aaron manage to get out of dodge before the law tracks them down?

What’s more, will Chas and Liv be able to remain calm knowing what they know, as the police investigate?

Emmerdale continues on Wednesday 16th October at 7pm on ITV.

He told New! magazine that he was approached by The X Factor producers, who asked him to appear on the new, upcoming version of he X Factor: All Stars.

The Essex presenter admitted he turned down the role. He said: "I was asked to do All Stars, but I'm alright. I've got work.

The former X Factor hopeful started his stardom journey in 2012 in the ninth series of the singing show.

The singer made it to the quarter finals with the publics support but was not such a favourite of judge Gary Barlow who blasted him as “talentless.”

Julie Andrews Opens Up About 'Times of Sadness' in Revealing New Memoir: 'I Wanted to Be Frank'

Julie Andrews is revealing secrets about her legendary career in her new memoir.

The 84-year-old actress, singer and performer appeared on Today Tuesday morning to promote the book, titled Home Work: A Memoir of My Hollywood Years. Andrews wrote the memoir with her daughter Emma, 56, and opened up about the process of reliving some of the busiest and most exciting times in her life.

“It was painful, funny, we wept at times, we laughed our heads off, we drank endless cups of tea. And we worked,” Andrews said. “It was about a 2½, 3-year project when all is said and done. It was a lot of writing with my daughter, which I enjoyed very, very much.”

Home Work, out today, follows Andrews’ career from 1963 to 1986, starting with her arrival in Hollywood to film Mary Poppins and The Sound of Music back-to-back and ending with the film That’s Life!

“I made three films and was having a wonderful time because none of them had been released, so I was learning about movies and working hard and all of that,” she said of her early acting years. “And then suddenly they were all released. And then, everybody was talking about it. It was an assault, really, for awhile. I’m not complaining, believe me.”

But although her career was blossoming during that time, Andrews also gets personal about the low moments she experienced.

“There were times of sadness and many things like that. I wanted to be as frank as I could,” she said of the book. “If I’m going to write a memoir, I might as well be frank as much as I can. So many things were happening at the time. That’s why I call it Home Work, because it’s about the work I was learning to do on movies which I’d never done before. And also, homework on myself, to a certain extent — how was I growing, what I was learning in life.”

Home Work is out now.

Tyler Cameron Shares His Favorite Kind Of DM To Receive From Fans

Tyler Cameron is reportedly single after dating supermodel Gigi Hadid. 

“Tyler is single. He and Gigi Hadid are no longer together,” a source told Us Weekly

If that doesn’t convince you, on October 1, Cameron teased on Watch What Happens With Andy Cohen that he “may be single.”

But, in several interviews as of late, Cameron’s said he’s done talking to the press about his love life.

“I mean, I’m at the point right now where I don’t really talk about what I’m doing relationship-wise. What’s out there is out there. I’m just focusing on myself right now,” Cameron said in a recent interview with People when the interviewer asked him about his relationship status. 

Coming from The Bachelorette, it’s no surprise Cameron’s craving some privacy in regards to his dating life. After things didn’t work out between Hannah Brown and Jed Wyatt, Bachelor Nation was incredibly hopeful that Brown and Cameron would give their relationship another shot. When he quickly began pursuing Hadid after Brown’s season finale, fans were devestated but still very, very invested in Cameron.

Tyler Cameron gets a lot of DMs

In his interview with People, Cameron was asked if he gets a lot of direct messages from fans.

“Yeah, there’s quite a few,” he anwered.

Feeling @dylanbarbour level cute💁🏻‍♂️

A post shared by Tyler Cameron (@tylerjcameron3) on

He gets so many, in fact, that he has a specific type of DM he enjoys receiving.

“I love it when I get the good old, like a good cookie … like people try to throw any cookie jokes at me, or send pictures of the cookies they’re eating, so those hit home well,” he said, being the big baked good guy he is.

So if you’re reading this and you’re a Cameron fan who’s been looking for the perfect DM slide, go the cookie route.

“Good cookie advice, and recommendations, and the cookies you’re eating,” he said.

Tyler Cameron on Peter Weber as the bachelor

There was talk of Cameron being named the bachelor in the midst of the casting process. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, he revealed that he was indeed offered the gig, but he turned it down.

Cameron knows Peter Weber from Brown’s season of The Bachelorette. Though there’s been some fan criticism crying It should have been Mike Johnson, Weber has a fan in Cameron.

'NCIS' Star Wilmer Valderrama Talks Ziva's Return and the Future of Bishop and Torres

After appearing in the first two episodes of season 17 of NCIS, it is going to be a while before Cote de Pablo returns as Ziva David. Now that the team is getting back to their usual work, NCIS star Wilmer Valderrama opened up about how Ziva’s return has affected everyone. This includes his character’s relationship with Bishop (Emily Wickersham), who was the first person who discovered her secret in season 16.

Valderrama dishes on de Pablo’s return

With Ziva now out of the picture, the NCIS team returned to theirusual business this week, including a case that involved the death of a MarineLieutenant, who was discovered under a semi-truck. To find the original crimescene, the team used the vehicle’s GPS to map out where it had been earlierthat day.

While everyone worked together to find the suspect, Jack Sloane(Maria Bello) persuaded them to open up about what Ziva’s return means to allof them.

In a recent interview with Parade,Valderrama continued that discussion and revealed that Ziva’s suddenresurrection has disrupted everyone’s lives, including his character, Torres.

“Ziva resurfacing definitely took a toll on the team,” Valderramashared. “Everything has been disturbed and has been disrupted.”

Valderrama added that everyone is dealing with Ziva’s return on NCIS in their own way. For Torres, finding out that Ziva is still alive was not that big of a bombshell, mostly because she was before his time.

When it comes to working with de Pablo, Valderrama said he had ablast sharing a few scenes with her. He also enjoys the dynamics between Zivaand Torres, especially considering how they both have such a strongpersonality.

What about Torres and Bishop?

Fans have been shipping Torres and Bishop for the past few years,and it sounds like we might be finally getting some updates on that front.

In a previous interview, NCIS executive producers Steven D. Binder and Frank Cardea opened up about their potential romance and revealed that they are growing quite “fond” of each other – which is super exciting.

That said, the producers also explained how everyone on the teamis hesitant to get close to each other because they know something bad couldhappen at any moment. This could prevent Torres and Bishop from gettingromantic, especially if they don’t think it is worth the risk.

After all, we all know how Ziva’s NCIS romance with Tony DiNozzo (Michael Weatherly) turned out.

As far as Valderrama is concerned, he echoed a lot of Binder andCardea’s sentiments and could not say for sure if Torres and Bishop will everget together.

For Torres, he has a hard time getting close to co-workersbecause of his previous work as an undercover agent. He is also hesitant toshare his feelings for Bishop because he doesn’t want anything to get in theway of his professional work.

Unfortunately, it does not sound like Torres and Bishop will be sparking up a romance this season on NCIS, but there is another potential pairing to look forward to.

Will Ziva reunite with Tony?

Fans have been speculating about a reunion between Tony and Zivaever since they learned that she is still alive. Before she left Washington inthe second episode this season, Ziva vowed to clear her name and reunite withher family.

Ziva’s family includes her daughter, Tali, and her former lover,Tony. Ziva has not seen her daughter since she faked her death in season 13,and we still don’t know where things stand between her and Tony.

In the second episode of season 17 of NCIS, Tony called Gibbs on his phone, so we know that he is still in communication with the team. Whether or not this means that the pair will reunite is another matter, but it seems like we’re headed for an epic reunion.

Ziva is slated to appear in two more episodes this season, whichgives her plenty of time to get back with Tony and Tali. We do not know whatwill happen to Ziva after that, but we hope she is here to stay.

New episodes of NCISair Tuesday nights on CBS.

Frozen 2 fan theory: Are Anna and Elsa’s parents ALIVE? Who is the Fire Spirit?

Frozen was released nearly six years ago and took the world by storm. Queen Elsa (Idina Menzel) and her beautiful singing voice left children everywhere singing ‘Let It Go’ for months on end. But there are some theories about what Frozen 2 could be about which will shock fans.

According to the Frozen 2 trailer, the story will take Elsa and Anna (Kristen Bell) into the mountains where Elsa hears a strange sound calling to her.

They, along with Kristoff (Jonathan Groff), Olaf (Josh Gad) and Sven, take a trip into the north to find out what this could be, what is causing Arendelle to be under siege by the weather, and what could be the source of Elsa’s powers.

One theory suggests we will finally find out the truth about Anna and Elsa’s parents, Queen Iduna and King Agnarr.

The couple barely had anything to do in the first film, but the cast list reveals the couple will have a part in sequeul.

The King and Queen are voiced by Evan Rachel Wood and Alfred Molina, which suggests their presence is likely to be much bigger.

As well as that, Wood will feature in two songs – one named “All Is Found” and another, a duet with Menzel, called “Show Yourself.”

There are three theories which have sprouted from their larger parts in the new film, and the titles of these songs, along with trailer footage.

The first theory is that Anna and Elsa’s parents lived, or at least spent time, in the Enchanted Forest, a place where a huge mist surrounded it, leaving those living there trapped inside.

In an early trailer, a scene shows King Agnarr telling the girls the story, as their mother leaves the room looking sad, as if plagued by memories.

The audience is then shown people in the Enchanted Forest, including a young girl with brown hair playing with the leaves.

One theory suggests this is their mother, who lived in the Enchanted Forest, but somehow was not trapped and was able to escape and went to Arendelle.

The trailer also shows the character of Yelana, who is the leader of the Northuldra tribe who live in the forest.

Yelana has a strong resemblance to Iduna, so it may be that the tribe leader is perhaps the Queen’s mother, who is still living in the forest and is devastated by the loss of her daughter.

The second theory is that, as has been made clear, Frozen 2 will finally reveal the origin of Elsa’s powers.

As the young girl, who may or may not be Queen Iduna, is seen playing in the leaves, could it be that she has powers over the autumn?

This would mean that, while Elsa’s powers seem to be over cold and snow, perhaps it is actually over the seasons, meaning she controls Winter as her mother controls the Autumn.

In the trailer, there is also a huge amount of fire which seems to threaten Elsa.

But could it be that, with Anna being the complete opposite of her sister, that she is actually in control of the Summer, and therefore fire along with it?

If it is the case that their parents have powers, it would seem unfair and strange for Anna to have gotten away without having any.

Perhaps this is the moment when we discover Anna’s true powers, which are, along with her character, the opposite of what her sister possesses.

The final theory is that their parents are, in fact, alive, and trapped in the Enchanted Forest.

With the song Wood sings being named “All Is Found,” could it be she has finally found her daughters?

The theory goes that she is calling to her daughter from the forest, calling for them to rescue her and her father, but have waited until the right moment before doing so.

Now she can be heard and when the pair finally meet, Elsa calls on her to “Show Yourself,” at which point Iduna is revealed to be staying in the forest.

The couple were said to have died at sea, but little is known or seen in relation to their deaths.

Perhaps they actually escaped the shipwreck, and the mist parted to allow them a safe place to stay in the forest.

Of course, technically all three of these theories could be true concurrently, but fans will need to wait until the film comes out to find out for certain.

Frozen 2 is released in cinemas on November 22

‘Out of nowhere, we got a call from an adoption agency in Florida,’ the father of three shared. ‘[They said] “We have researched you, we know all about you, if you don’t adopt her in 24 hours, we’re putting her into care.”‘

Pressured, Michael and his now-former wife Christine travelled to meet (and did eventually adopt) Natalia. But Michael shared with This Morning viewers that ‘the alerts started before we got home.’

‘[Christine] shouted, it was one of those voices where you knew something was wrong,’ he continued. ‘Christine was white as a ghost. I looked down and Natalia, at age six, had full pubic hair.’

But the Barnett’s real-life horror story didn’t end there. The US-native also shared a collection of traumatising events that their adopted daughter subjected them too.

‘She used to put thumb tacks straight up on the stairs,’ Barnett shared. ‘We would find knives under her bed. I woke up in the middle of the night and [Natalia] was standing over my bed with a knife in her hand.’

Holly and Phil could only listen, dumb-founded as their guest revealed the breaking point came where Natalia actively tried to harm his three sons, when she would collect the things most precious to the boys – a cow toy, toy cars and homework – and would throw them into traffic whilst the family were crossing the street.

‘Natalia would tell us coldly, “I’m trying to kill the boys,”‘ he said.

Luckily, however, no-one was seriously harmed and the Barnett’s would visit a series of doctors and therapists and discover that Natalia’s real age was closer to 22 than it was to six years old. They had her birth certificate amended and when the family left America for Canada, they left their adopted daughter behind too, setting her up in her own flat.

The story isn’t over yet, though, as Barnett himself could go to prison, after police discovered Natalia living on her own and are looking to charge both him and his ex-wife Christine with neglect.

‘Fact is,’ he said defending himself live on air. ‘Natalia – three times in American court – has been educated and ruled to be an adult.’

This Morning airs weekdays from 10.30am on ITV.

Matt Lauer Exposed Himself to a Today Show Producer at Work Event, Ronan Farrow Claims in Book

Brooke Nevils isn’t the only woman to accuse Matt Lauer of sexual misconduct in Ronan Farrow ’s new book Catch and Kill: Lies, Spies, and a Conspiracy to Protect Predators (out now).

In the book, Farrow writes that Lauer exposed himself to former Today show producer Melissa Lonner at a work event in 2010.

Farrow says that Lonner — who declined to comment for the book — told colleagues that Lauer asked her to leave the party at 30 Rock to “see him in his office.”

Once inside his office, Lauer, 61, reportedly asked her to sit down on a couch.

“He joked about how much he disliked work cocktail parties like the one they’d just attended,” writes Farrow, 31. “Then, she told the colleagues, he unzipped his pants and exposed his erect penis.”

Lonner, 49, remembered “reeling” in response and nervously joking about not wanting to be intimate in his office because “everyone else has done it,” according to Farrow.

After she rejected him, Lauer reportedly became angry, saying, “Melissa you’re a f—– tease,” Farrow writes.

Sources close to Lauer told Farrow that former anchor made lewd gestures to Lonner but did not expose himself, according to Catch and Kill.

After the incident, Lonner allegedly confided in Ann Curry. “It was as close as you could get to a woman just melting in front of you in pain,” Curry tells Farrow in the book.

Against Lonner’s wishes, Curry told two senior executives about what happened, though, “as far as Curry ever heard, nothing happened” to him. (In April 2018, Curry told the Washington Post that she had reported an instance of sexual harassment against Lauer to NBC brass before leaving Today in 2012, without revealing the accuser’s name. “I told management they had a problem and they needed to keep an eye on him and how he deals with women,” she said.)

However, on Monday, Noah Oppenheim refuted Lonner’s allegation in a memo to staffers at NBC News and MSNBC, claiming Lonner never filed a complaint against Lauer and that her exit from the company was by the books.

“At the time of the employee’s exit, three years later, she still had made no complaint about Lauer, was paid 22 weeks of severance based on her years of service and was asked to sign a separation agreement that was standard for departing employees at the time,” the division’s president said. “The standard separation agreement included a routine confidentiality clause that was designed to protect proprietary company information.  It was not drafted to prevent an employee from reporting misconduct, and it has never been used that way.  (This employee made a complaint to management about Lauer, for the first time, after his 2017 firing.)”

He also slammed the claim the Curry told two executives about the incident.

“Farrow says she disclosed her allegation to Ann Curry in 2010, and asked her not to share it. Curry says she then told two executives – both of whom are no longer with the company – that Lauer ‘had a problem with women,’ ” he wrote. “By her own account, Curry relayed no specific complaint, nor did she say Lauer’s ‘problem’ regarded any specific workplace misconduct. NBCU was able to speak with one of those former executives during the 2018 review and she denied having been told even this.”

According to Farrow’s book, when Lonner noticed Lauer ignoring her in the weeks that followed, she began looking for other jobs. However, when she got a job offer, the network urged her not to leave, even claiming Lauer personally “insisted” that she stay, Farrow writes.

“I don’t know what’s going on between you two,” one executive allegedly told her, according to the book. “But I need you to keep him happy.”

Lonner stayed at NBC for several more years until her contract ended, and she was ultimately fired, according to Farrow. But when she left, she was offered a “six-figure sum in exchange for signing a release of rights,” — something her then-agent found strange.

“Lonner’s understanding was that the primary intention of the payout was to prevent her from talking to the press,” Farrow writes.

Lauer was fired from the Today show for sexual misconduct in 2017. In the book, former NBC employee Brooke Nevils accuses him of anally raping her in his hotel room at the 2014 Sochi Olympics, which Lauer denies.

In a letter to Variety, Lauer — who was married to now ex-wife Annette Roque at the time — repeatedly characterized his relationship with Nevils as “mutual.”

And in a statement to PEOPLE, Lauer’s attorney Elizabeth M. Locke said: “In 25 years at NBC, Matt Lauer did not have a single complaint brought to his attention until November 28, 2017. NBC has already stated this for the record after an internal investigation. I am sure NBC will have much to say about Ronan’s claims.”

On Monday, Noah Oppenheim refuted Lonner’s allegation in a memo to staffers at NBC News and MSNBC, claiming Lonner never officially filed a complaint against Lauer and that her exit from the company was by the books.

“At the time of the employee’s exit, three years later, she still had made no complaint about Lauer, was paid 22 weeks of severance based on her years of service and was asked to sign a separation agreement that was standard for departing employees at the time,” the division’s president said. “The standard separation agreement included a routine confidentiality clause that was designed to protect proprietary company information.  It was not drafted to prevent an employee from reporting misconduct, and it has never been used that way.  (This employee made a complaint to management about Lauer, for the first time, after his 2017 firing.)”
