Strictly fans fume as judges ‘expose’ next star to leave show with brutal clue

Strictly Come Dancing 's judges seemed to say a little too much as they gave Chris Ramsey and Karen Clifton their comments during the show tonight.

The judges appeared to be talking to Chris like he was about to leave the show after he performed the Viennese Waltz, as Craig talked about the journey that he had been on.

He added that he was "so proud of Chris", but fans noticed they seemed to be harsher on him than anyone else.

One fan wrote: "Leaving the hardest dance for Chris in the semi final is completely unfair, as well as overmarking the other contestants it’s very clear who the judges want in the final."

Another added: "Judges talking to Chris like he is leaving – set up or what?? Plus they’re being so much meaner to him than anyone else."

A third chipped in: "The judges are definitely saying goodbye to Chris tonight with their comments…"

A fourth wrote: Judges making sure Chris leaves."

Game of Thrones' Jon Snow really was Azor Ahai with the truth hidden in plain sight

GAME of Thrones' Jon Snow really was Azor Ahai with the truth hidden in plain sight claims a new fan theory.

The end of the series was controversial with fans as it seemed as if no-one had become the Prince Who Was Promised as the reincarnation of the famous warrior.

But now a new theory claims that Jon really was he and it claims the proof was hidden in plain sight in three huge scenes.

It claims there are three steps to being Azor Ahai and these are laid out on The Wiki of Fire and Ice.

STEP 1 reads: "Darkness lay over the world and a hero, Azor Ahai, was chosen to fight against it.

"To fight the darkness, Azor Ahai needed to forge a hero's sword. He laboured for thirty days and thirty nights until it was done.


However, when he went to temper it in water, the sword broke."

The theory claims that Jon's battle against The Others was the first part of this and then his fight against the White Walkers was his symbolic battle with the water.

STEP 2 reads: "The second time he took fifty days and fifty nights to make the sword, even better than the first. To temper it this time, he captured a lion and drove the sword into its heart, but once more the steel shattered."

The theory claims the second threat was the Lannister armies (the lion) and Cersei's evil rule as regent.

STEP 3 reads: "He called for his wife, Nissa Nissa, and asked her to bare her breast. He drove his sword into her living heart, her soul combining with the steel of the sword, creating Lightbringer, the Red Sword of Heroes.

"Her blood, soul, strength, and courage went into the steel of the sword, creating Lightbringer. Following this sacrifice, Lightbringer was as warm as Nissa Nissa had been in life."

This is where the theory becomes tricky claiming Jon became lightbringing when he killed Daenerys to stop her own cruel rule after she destroyed Kings Landing and burned the innocent people alive.

THE END reads: "Once Azor Ahai fought a monster. When he thrust his sword through the belly of the beast its blood began to boil. Smoke and steam poured from its mouth, its eyes melted and dribbled down its cheeks and its body burst into flame."

The theory states that Daenerys had become the monster Jon had to thrust his sword through, and Drogon's burning of the Iron Throne was the rest meaning Jon really was Azor Ahai.

Strictly star Emma Barton ‘breaks down’ in rehearsals with Anton Du Beke

EastEnders star Emma Barton couldn't hide her delight when she was found out she and professional partner, Anton Du Beke had made it through to the semi final of the hit BBC show.

The actress, who plays Honey Mitchell in the BBC soap, has won a new army of fans as she waltzes her way closer to the Glitterball trophy.

And Emma has been winning rave reviews from the judges as her performances improve week on week.

A clearly delighted Anton whooped with joy when he realised they had made it to the semis, jumped in the air and hugged an equally delighted Emma.

He said: "Look at me! Cat that got the cream!"


  • Strictly star Anton Du Beke's devastating fertility struggles with his wife

  • Strictly's Anton du Beke on course for victory after 15 years of missing out

And he later wrote on social media: "Huge congratulations to my incredible partner  @EmmaBarton  for such an amazing performance… and huge thanks to everyone who voted for us! That Glitterball's another week closer, my loves – just phenomenal!!"

But Emma's Strictly success has come at a price as Anton, dubbed Strictly's unluckiest dancer, piles on the pressure in rehearsals.

He has often been paired with Strictly's 'jokers', like Ann Widdecombe, and it has now been reported that he's gone into "full sargeant major mode" as the pair practice their routines.

One source told The Sun: "Anton is determined to go to the final this year and has told pals he will do whatever it takes."

His determination has reportedly left Emma in tears in rehearsals.


  • Strictly's Shirley Ballas accused of sexism as viewers claim she 'hates women'

  • Strictly's delighted semi-finalists announce their dances on next week's show

Emma has admitted she is finding it hard to fit her gruelling training regime around her day job in EastEnders.

She said: "You still want that extra day, you still want those few extra hours, you just have to work with what you're given.

"I work really hard, Anton works really hard. I've said this before, I'm on two of the biggest shows on the BBC, I'm a very lucky girl."

While Emma might be soaring high on Strictly, she's remaining tight-lipped about her love life, despite having had some very famous boyfriends in the past.

Emma was in a relationship with presenter Stephen Mulherne from 2008 until 2011.

Before she met Stephen, Emma had a relationship with her hunky EastEnders co-star, Joel Beckett.

But love with the actor, who played Jake Moon, didn't last.

And fellow co-star, Jamie Borthwick, who plays Jay Brown in EastEnders, admitted he had a massive crush on Emma.

However, she shut down any rumours of a possible romance by insisting he was "more like a brother".

Emma was going through a painful divorce just as she joined the EastEnders' cast.

The 42-year-old married lawyer Nigel Stoat in 2002 but their relationship broke down three years later.

The Grand Tour: Jeremy Clarkson ‘thought we’d be rid of James May’ after on-set disaster

The Grand Tour viewers are just days away from the show’s return and although they aren’t quite sure what to expect just yet, the show’s presenters are eager to discuss their travels ahead of its release. Jeremy Clarkson, James May, and Richard Hammond explored Cambodia and Vietnam to gather new footage for the show’s fourth season.

On the show’s return, executive producer Andy Wilman recently spoke out about almost losing James May during filming.

Speaking to Radio Times Andy told a story about diving through the marshes and rivers of Cambodia.

He explained: “Finally, we got to the main rivers and could put our foot down.

“Our aquatic road was the gift that kept on giving in a way tarmac never could.”

But the environment and weather caused a lot of trouble with the team as they continued on their journey.

Andy continued: “The unpredictable water threw constant curve balls that led to comedy and drama in equal measure.

“Before it propelled us to a climax as dangerous as anything we’ve ever attempted.”

It would then seem James’ life was at risk at one point, as Andy recited an anecdote from Jeremy.

He said: “Even Jeremy said: ‘I thought for once we were actually going to be rid of James May.’”

“But no,” he added. “He survived.”

The fourth season of the adventure show will certainly show all of this in excruciating detail, but until then, fans will have to wait and see what is going to happen.

Recently, whilst speaking to Express.co.uk, Jeremy explained he lost contact with James and Richard, and there was a lengthy gap between their reunion.

Jeremy also went on to explain that, during a lot of the show’s filming, there was not any crew present when he first arrived.

He explained: “I genuinely didn’t feel particularly threatened, it was really uncomfortable so it was horrible.

“But then I’ve seen the footage now of what it was like.”

“I didn’t care about James and Richard,” Jeremy went on. “But the camera guys and the production team, they were really quite scared because those boats were sinking and four fisherman were drowning right by that river.”

“Did you see she went to Chile for the climate conference which was then moved to Madrid? I literally s**t myself laughing.

'The Boys': See Blood-Soaked Season 2 Trailer for Superhero Series

While the first season of The Boys premiered in July, Amazon has already shared a teaser for the show’s forthcoming second season.

In the new trailer, the anti-heroes and sociopathic superheroes are back and covered in blood. The brief video doesn’t feature any dialogue between the characters, but a lot of action-packed visuals alluding to the direction of Season 2. In the under one-and-a-half-minute trailer, there’s milk-licking, blood spattering, a severed hand and another cameo from Breaking Bad‘s Giancarlo Esposito who appeared in the first season. Homelander (Antony Starr) appears looking shocked, his face covered in blood, while The Deep (Chace Crawford) is seen sobbing. Plus, Billy Butcher (Karl Urban), the leader of the Boys is seen downing a glass of whiskey.

Of the new season, Starr said at CCXP: “Season One for Homelander was about reconciling his past, dealing with his past. And one of the things that happen to all the characters [in Season 2], is whatever he had in Season One gets taken away. It’s a very internal journey.” Starr added that “it gets really fucking weird” and that the season features “some of the weirdest things I’ve ever done.”

There’s no hard release date yet, but The Boys is expected to return to Amazon Prime at some point in 2020.

Director Dan Scanlon Talks Deep Personal And Emotional Connection To Pixar’s ‘Onward’ – CCXP

Sao Paulo went Onward at CCXP on Saturday as director Dan Scanlon of the forthcoming Pixar film featuring the voices of Tom Holland, Chris Pratt, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Octavia Spencer took the dais at the pop culture confab. The animated pic may be set in a visually stunning fantasy world where unicorns roam the streets eating garbage like pesky raccoons, but for Scanlon, the film hits way close to home and if you have a heart, you’ll be be grabbing the tissues based on his story alone.

“This is a really personal film for me,” said Scanlon. “When I was a year old my father passed away — and my brother was three. We have no memory of him.”

Scanlon went on to say there wasn’t anything they could remember their father by because they were so young  — until a relative sent them an audio recording with his voice. During the panel, Scanlon shared the soul-stirring recording which had his father saying “hi” and “goodbye”. It wasn’t much, but for Scanlon, it was more than enough. “To us, it was magical,” he said. “It was amazing to hear his voice.”

Six years in the making, Onward — which is titled Dois Irmanos: Uma Jornada Fantastica (Two Brothers: A Fantastic Journey) in Brazil — was a way to share his story, a way to find out more about and pay tribute to his father. And based on the heart and soul Scanlon put into this, it will be on-brand for Pixar and will guarantee buckets of tears.

In the film, Holland and Pratt star as Ian and Barley Lightfoot, teenage elf brothers in a suburban fantasy world filled with gnomes, trolls, mermaids and centaurs. On Ian’s 16th birthday, their mom (Louis-Dreyfus) gives him a gift from the boys’ late father, who the family believes was an “accountant.” But the present is a wizard staff — turns out Pops was a wizard, and the staff comes with a spell that could bring him back for a day. One problem: The revival goes awry, and the family is left with dad from the waist down only. From here, they go on an adventure to complete the spell and bring back the other half of their father — and they only have 24 hours. During their quest, they encounter snarling unicorns, cops and a gang of tiny biker pixies who go from trashing a convenience store to giving chase.

Scanlon shared a clip from the film including an emotional scene where their mother gives them the wizard staff and the brothers are reunited with one-half of their father. He also shared an action-packed clip where the brothers encounter the biker pixies as well as one where Ian and Barley use the staff to cast a spell to get themselves out of a sticky situation.

Onward opens in theaters March 6, 2020.
