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.

In the caption, the star simply wrote: GDay.

The presenter will be joined by Holly Willoughby Down Under, for this years Im a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

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.

If anything lands on me Im not going to like that very much, Im not a fan of the uninvited guests but Im ready to go and Im excited for the adventure.

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.

‘I’m not ready for it to end’: Growing up with Game Of Thrones

By Tom Acres, news reporter

"Winter is coming," uttered Ned Stark, warning of a seemingly impending doom that could change the future of Westeros before audiences had even had much of a chance to get a sense for its present.

Amid all the introductions to the then relatively carefree lives of the characters of Game Of Thrones, it was a bleak hint to those who tuned into the debut episode more than eight years ago that things would soon take a turn for the worse.

But, with sixth form in full flow and still somewhat embarrassingly untrusted with the Sky box PIN required to open my eyes to a world of brutal murder and little modesty, my focus was instead firmly placed on a different – if not similarly menacing – warning: "Exams are coming."

Growing up in a household that required me to make covert visits to a friend to sample the new Grand Theft Auto or other such adult entertainment (sorry, Mum, sometimes it wasn't actually homework), Thrones meant the living room door was kept firmly shut each Monday evening to ensure my younger sister and I were not too easily exposed to the horrors of beheadings and brothels.

"But look how young that girl looks," my sister would likely have thought of Arya Stark, wondering why she was deemed unsuited to watching a show that starred a girl even fresher-faced than the both of us.

Thankfully, once those final school exams were out of the way (German being the Red Wedding of the bunch), university was on the horizon and freedom with it.

Looking back, student hall discussions without Thrones seems akin to Laurel without Hardy, but unlike other university topics of conversation ("How many jaegerbombs was it last night?", "What do you mean the essay is due tomorrow?!"), the goings-on in the Seven Kingdoms has remained the perfect small talk.

Reality TV star Kim Kardashian West and her musician husband Kanye West appear to have named their new child Psalm.

The trainee-lawyer posted a picture of the child, who was born via a surrogate, with the caption "Psalm West".

The photo appeared to be accompanied by comments from Kanye, saying: "Beautiful Mother's Day. With the arrival of our fourth child. We are blessed beyond measure. We have everything we need."

Perhaps following in the footsteps of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex who did not announce the name of their newborn on the same day as the birth, the Kardashian West family waited a week before revealing their fourth child's name.

The birth had been announced on 10 May when she wrote: "He's here and he's perfect!"

Freddie Starrs wife Sophie Lea has said she tried to kill herself after suffering abuse at the hands of her late husband.

The now 38-year-old, who was married to the comedian for two years, said she drove herself to the hospital after slitting her own wrists.

She said: I would have much rather been hit than have to deal with the constant cruel words. He told me I was ­worthless, that I was absolutely nothing. He was massively paranoid.

Sophie claimed the actor stopped her from leaving the house, and prevented her from speaking to her son Elliott unless he was present in case they sent messages via their eyes.

It was hellish. Its hard to describe in its entirety of how bad it was, she recalled. Mentally I was in a mess. I eventually had a breakdown. I was suicidal. I was also self-harming, cutting my arms and legs.

She added to the Mirror: He also said, “Go and get me a knife and Ill f*****g do it properly for you.” I ended up thinking, “F**k you, youre not doing it” and went and slit my wrist…I wrapped it up and drove myself to hospital.
