Declan Donnelly braced the long haul flight to Australia with his two-month-old baby girl Isla earlier this week.

And it seems they have safely touched down, as the new dad was spotted out and about in the Gold Coast on Friday.

The 43-year-old appeared to be in high spirits as he was joined by his wife Ali, who looked to have been grocery shopping, as she carried a four pack of kitchen roll under her arm.

Heading out of their hotel, the pair soaked up the sun and had a moment to themselves without their little baby.

They were joined by two security guards who seemingly helped the couple carry their shopping back to their residency.

She too will be bringing her family along for the ride, as revealed her plans for the ITV adventure on This Morning.

Holly said: Im really excited, I cant wait to go.

Im scared of everything, but its not for me to be worried about that, thats for the celebrities to be worried about, theyve signed up for that so its their problem, not mine.

The 37-year-old will be joined by Scarlett Moffatt and Joe Swash who will be presenting the Im A Celeb spin-off show Extra Camp.

Scarlett recently opened up about Holly joining the team, and expressed her excitement of having another girl around.

She told Metro.co.uk: I havent [spoken to Holly much]. It is very testosterone based because theres a lot of men, so Im excited for there to be another woman.

Director ‘an idiot’ for flashing at stars including Cameron Diaz

Green Book director Peter Farrelly has apologised and called himself an “idiot” after a story emerge..

Green Book director Peter Farrelly has apologised and called himself an "idiot" after a story emerged in which stars told how he liked to flash his genitals as a joke.

New York Magazine's The Cut published excerpts of a story which ran in Newsweek in 1998, which said Farrelly and his brother and frequent film-making partner Bobby Farrelly would "prank" colleagues.

The Farrelly brothers are best known for comedies including Dumb and Dumber, Shallow Hal, Kingpin and There's Something About Mary.

Those who spoke to Newsweek about being tricked included film executive Tom Rothman and actress Cameron Diaz, who was starring in There's Something About Mary at the time.

Both treated the incidents as a prank, The Cut article notes.

Peter Farrelly has had something of a reinvention with last year's Green Book, a comedy-drama about racism set in the Deep South in the 1960s, which he directed on his own.

The film stars Mahershala Ali and Viggo Mortensen as a black concert pianist and his Italian-American driver who become unlikely friends, and won a Golden Globe at the weekend for best musical or comedy film, as well as the awards for best supporting actor for Ali and best screenplay.

More from Ents & Arts

Following The Cut's article, Farrelly issued a statement through his publicists saying the stories were true.

"I was an idiot," he said. "I did this decades ago and I thought I was being funny and the truth is I'm embarrassed and it makes me cringe now. I'm deeply sorry."

Gary Oldman surprises fans as he narrates David Bowie app on late singers birthday

He was good friends with the late singer so it only makes sense that Gary Oldman features on the new David Bowie app.

To coincide with what would have been Bowies 72nd birthday and third death anniversary, the David Bowie Is app arrived earlier this week giving fans an interactive exhibition into the life and stellar career of the iconic British singer, who died on 10 January 2016.

Fans can navigate their way through hundreds of Bowies earliest stage outfits, videos, handwritten lyrics and diary entries in 360-degree detail. Its a digital adaptation of the critically-acclaimed V&A Museum exhibition, which launched in 2013 and toured around the world before closing last summer.

But perhaps one of the top highlights is Oldman narrating a visual of Bowies 1974 Diamond Dogs Tour. In his voiceover, the Oscar-winning actor says the tour featured contemporary music and theatre several years ahead of its time and a stellar lineup of theatrical collaborators quite unlike that of any previous rock tour.

The historic tour boasted a dystopian cityscape theme, inspired by George Orwells classic novel Nineteen Eighty-Four.

On his involvement with the project, Oldman said in a statement: This brings the amazing David Bowie Is exhibition to a wider audience. Its great that his fans get to experience it. It was a privilege to be involved.

As Lady Gaga apologises for working with R Kelly, all the stars who have spoken out against him

The allegations of sexual abuse against R Kelly have been brought into the spotlight again by the Lifetime docu-series Surviving R Kelly.

Fresh investigations into the Ignition singer have been launched in Chicago and Atlanta into allegations of sexual and physical abuse made against him by a number of women.

The 52-year-old is accused of holding five women in a sex cult, as well as having sexual contact with girls as young as 14. R Kelly has strongly denied these allegations.

While the attention on the allegations has ramped up since the airing of Surviving R Kelly, rumours have been rampant since the 90s, when the singer allegedly married Aaliyah when she was 15 and he was 27.

In light of the documentary, Lady Gaga – who collaborated with R Kelly on the 2013 song Do What You Want – has apologised for working with the R&B star.

In a note on social media, Gaga wrote: As a victim of sexual assault myself, I made both the song and the video at a dark time in my life, my intention was to create something extremely defiant and provocative because I was angry and still hadnt processed the trauma that had occurred in my own life.

The song is called “Do What U Want (With My Body),” I think its clear how explicitly twisted my thinking was at the time. If I could go back and have a talk with my younger self Id tell her to go through the therapy I have since then, so that I could understand the confused post-traumatic state that I was in—or if therapy was not available to me or anyone in my situation—to seek help, and speak as openly and honestly as possible about what weve been through.

I cant go back but I can go forward and continue to support women, men and people of all seuxal identities and of all races who are victims of sexual assault. I have demonstrated my stance on this issue and others many times throughout my career. (more…)
