I’m supporting the @OneFairWage Emergency Fund to support tipped restaurant workers, delivery drivers and other gig and service workers because they need our help. These are the folks who were already struggling before — and now they’re in crisis. Four million restaurant workers alone have already lost their jobs and another 7 million are expected to in the coming weeks. And a worker is applying for help from the One Fair Wage Emergency Fund literally every second. So every penny helps. Please give if you can!

DJ D-Nice’s ‘isolation dance parties’ a viral (in a good way) hit

After performing marathon “isolation dance parties” for 100,000 guests on Instagram Live last weekend, DJ D-Nice admitted to Page Six, “To be honest with you, I’m a little tired! I did like back-to-back nine-hour shifts,” followed by mere five-hour and six-hour sets.

“I’m like, ‘My back is hurting, I just really need to lay back and chill.’ What am I supposed to do? I stand up for nine hours tappin’ my foot.” But the DJ — whose Instagram following jumped from 200,000 to 1.7 million since his so-called Homeschool at Club Quarantine act debuted — doesn’t seem to be slowing.

He teamed with Spotify on a playlist this week, hosted a Club Quarantine voter registration party with Michelle Obama, and did a live talk with Ne-Yo. The virtual club’s been packed with endless VIPs from
Rihanna to Mark Zuckerberg. CAA even sent him sushi for sustenance.

He told us the idea began because he was lonely while isolating and missed crowds. At first, “It wasn’t many of us … it was kind of floating around 200. The next day it started to grow … Naomi Campbell was the one that was telling people.” Who knows who will pop in next and what numbers he could possibly hit?

Lucy Mecklenburgh shares candid snap of herself pumping breast milk at 4am for newborn son Roman

Lucy Mecklenburgh has shared a candid snap of herself expressing breast milk in the early hours of the morning for her newborn son Roman.

The former TOWIE star, who recently cried after her sister said it was "torture" not being able to see her nephew, took to her Instagram Stories to post the photo for her 1.6 million followers.

The picture sees the 28 year old sitting underneath a duvet with the pump tucked under her shirt, glowing as they collected milk for her two week old baby.

  • Ashley Banjo announces his wife has given birth to their second child

  • Victoria Beckham missing son Brooklyn who is stranded in the US amid coronavirus crisis

Keeping her face out of the frame, Lucy, who gave birth to her first child earlier this month, wrote over it: "4am pumping!" alongside a glass of milk emoji.

It comes as the reality star was recently forced to defend her decision to go for a stroll with fiancé Ryan Thomas, 35, and their son after urging people to self-isolate amid the coronavirus outbreak.

The new mum took to her Instagram Story to urge people to distance themselves from each other after several members of the public were seen spending time in parks last weekend.

Lucy wrote: “Why are people finding this so difficult to understand?! STAY AT HOME! It will save so many lives!!! It’s really simple! Stop being selfish!”

She then revealed that she had received messages saying she was being “hypocritical” after enjoying a stroll with Roman and beau Ryan.

“For DM’s about me going for a walk being hypocritical… I was with Ryan & Roman for an hour a day. We don’t come into contact with anyone or touch anything.

“From a distance I could see big groups of people having coffees together on bench’s, shops full, groups of people chatting, coffee shops packed!!! I don’t understand," she wrote.

In a speech on the evening of 23 March, the Prime Minister, who recently tested positive for the coronavirus, said people must stay at home unless they need to go out to get basic necessities, daily exercise, medical needs, or they're travelling to and from essential work.

    Khloe Kardashian: I Watched the ‘KUWTK’ Premiere With Tristan Thompson & It Was SO Awkward!

    If you tuned in to last night’s episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians then you already know it was a wild ride.

    Not only did Kim and Kourtney get into a physical fight over their work ethic (we haven’t seen anything like it since the 2008 Bentley situation), but Tristan Thompson was also a key player in the 30-minute premiere. Uh. 

    But I must say, the wildest part of it all was finding out that Khloe and Tristan watched the show, which showed Khloe venting about him to her sisters, together. Side by side. Alone in quarantine. 

    On Thursday night, Khloe revealed to Twitter that the two were watching the show together after he came by her house to visit their daughter, True.

    Does anyone actually buy that?

    “I love that tristan is watching this premiere with me and he is now seeing what they say when he’s not around lol AWKWARD!!” she wrote.

    Adding, “Let me just give around of applause for all the healthy coparenting is out there #KUWTK. THIS SHIT IS HARD BUT SO REWARDING.”

    Oh, and just to be clear, she also tweeted, “Lol he visits to see his daughter bless us all.”

    According to an Us Weekly source, Khloe “doesn’t have bad or negative feelings toward Tristan at this point” and spending time with him while the country is in quarantine mode has “made her have a soft spot” for him.

    “She knows he will always be part of her life in some way because he is True’s dad. Khloe has been open and receptive toward Tristan,” shared the source.

    The episode started with Kim running into Tristan in NYC and inviting him out to dinner with her friends, a move which took Khloe, and us, by surprise. 

    Khloe said it was “beyond generous” of her before Kim made it known she still doesn’t think “what Tristan did was obviously right,” referring to his cheating scandal, you know the one.

    “I also know that that’s True’s dad and mom cheated on dad and all of their friends forgave mom,” added the Skims founder.

    Khloe went on to explain that the two have an open door policy for him to see True and that they are in a “good place”, but believed that the dinner would still be “super awkward.”

    Before Tristan showed up, Kim warned her friends that he’d be coming, with model Winnie Harlow commenting, “I’ll just keep my mouth shut.”

    “I love that Kimberly says nobody was awkward,” Khloe live-tweeted during the show, “Because I was tense watching that #KUWTK.”

    Kim continued being friendly with Tristan throughout the episode and even invited him to a family dinner, to which Khloe said was “the most uncomfortable dinner EVER.”

    Yeah, we felt that on every level. 

    In a confessional, she said this would be the first time they’d have dinner without True around and she hoped to set some boundaries.

    “Sometimes people just assume everything’s good, I just want to be asked because this is just a little uncomfortable for me,” Khloe said. 

    After organizing Khloe’s closet together, Khloe finally pulled Kim aside to tell her “they don’t need to be hanging out” with Tristan “for no reason.”

    Adding, “It’s not even been a year into our breakup, so it’s just a lot so soon in my opinion… I just want to make sure everybody still has their head on straight.” 

    Well, I think it’s safe to say that Khloe and Tristan are on the same page after watching all of that together.

    But then again, with the way 2020 is going we have no idea how this is all going to play out and not much (even a Tristan and Khloe comeback) could surprise us at this point.

    Just like regular people, celebrities find love on the internet too! From sliding into DMs to accepting Facebook friend requests, is rounding up some of the stars who’ve met their match on social media! First up is Nick Jonas! The “Jealous” singer has Twitter to thank for sparking a romance with his wife Priyanka Chopra. After gushing about her with a mutual friend — her “Quantico” co-star Graham Rogers — Nick sent her a DM on Twitter in September 2016. She hit him back and asked him to text her instead. They finally met in person several months later at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party in 2017. More text flirting followed, and they went out for a drink a week ahead of the 2017 Met Gala, where both attended as guests of Ralph Lauren… but they were so busy, it took another year for them to actually start dating properly (though they did continue to use technology to communicate). Nick proposed after just a few months of dating in the summer of 2018 and they were married in numerous over-the-top ceremonies that year. Keep reading for more stars who found love in their DMs…

    Speaking to The Sun, he said: “I did have to turn down things in the past, which I was upset about sometimes, but I understood I was part of Strictly Come Dancing.

    “Now I am going to pursue things I didn’t have the time for. It’s the right move.

    “It’s a relief to finally quit. If I didn’t further my development now, while at my peak mental well-being, I would regret it.”

    There may be a pandemic racing across the globe, but at least we have Alex Trebek.

    The “Jeopardy” host delighted viewers with his deadpan recitation of lyrics from Lizzo’s smash song “Truth Hurts.”

    Under the category of “Lyrics of Today,” the 79-year-old intoned: “New man on the Minnesota Vikings, truth hurts, needed something more exciting, bom bom bi dom bi dum bum bay”’

    A contestant correctly answered “Lizzo.” Trebek then quipped, “And I did it exactly how she does it, did I?,” which prompted laughter from the studio audience.

    After Variety’s Rebecca Rubin shared the clip on Twitter, users were thrilled.

    “My Love For Alex Trebek Grew Tenfold After Hearing Him Recite Lizzo Lyrics on Jeopardy,” wrote one follower.

    Another added: “Watching Alex Trebek imitate @Lizzo on @Jeopardy tonight may be the best thing you will see all day.”

    “Need to have an entire album of Alex Trebek reciting pop and rap songs, he improves upon the material greatly. it would be golden,” another fan suggested.

    Last March, Trebek revealed that he has stage IV pancreatic cancer. Earlier this month, he announced that he had completed his first round of chemotherapy.

    A Place In The Sun’s Jasmine Harman talks ‘weird’ discovery after coronavirus scare

    A Place In The Sun presenter Jasmine Harman, 44, enjoyed a low-key outing over a park with her dog yesterday and documented her journey on Instagram. Her outing comes as her first since she fell ill with coronavirus symptoms last week. 

    It is quite weird getting out the house

    Jasmine Harman

    Jasmine told fans it was “weird” to be outdoors after self-isolating for 11 days.

    “Hey, look at me I’m out with this one,” she began while giving her 33,000 Instagram fans a glimpse of her dog.

    “After, I’ve lost count now, 10 or 11 days indoors, I discovered on the NHS that if you are the one in your household that has had symptoms, you can go out after seven days if you are no longer experiencing a fever.

    “So, I’ve done a load of extra days when I didn’t necessarily have to.

    “Of course I’m still going to have to observe staying home, apart from the normal allowances,” she continued.

    “But if you’re locked down with symptoms, obviously you’ve got to stay home full stop, so it is quite weird getting out the house.”

    The mother-of-two went on to share information from the NHS website, which confirmed Jasmine’s discovery.

    The website states that those with coronavirus symptoms should self-isolate for at least seven days until their symptoms stop.

    They add that if you live with someone who has symptoms, you’ll need to self-isolate for 14 days from the day the sufferer’s symptoms started.

    Jasmine’s first outing comes after she told fans she had symptoms of the deadly coronavirus.

    Last week, she told her Instagram fans she hadn’t been on the social media site due to falling ill. 

    She said: “I’ve not been on here for a while because I’ve not been well.

    “I think I do have the dreaded bug although I’m feeling much better than I was at the beginning of the week.”

    The property expert went on to tell fans she had developed coronavirus symptoms such as a “cough” and a “shortness of breath”.

    She went on to say: “No high temperature so I don’t know for sure if I have the coronavirus but it is fairly likely.

    “My symptoms have been relatively mild. Just wanted to say that everybody is keeping safe and well in these weird times.”

    The Channel 4 star continued to say she is self-isolating with her husband Jon Boast and their two children Joy, six, and Albion, four.

    Jasmine shared a snap of herself holding a script, while wearing a pair of headphones on her head in front of a microphone.
