Corrie star would have preferred I’m a Celebrity’s UK location

Published

Not everyone is going to love I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here‘s brand new location for its 2020 series, but former contestant and Coronation Street star Jennie McAlpine would have much preferred this year’s camp.

Jennie, who finished fourth in 2017’s I’m a Celebrity, spoke to Radio Times about ITV’s decision to move its camp to Gwrych Castle, Abergele in North Wales – and it turns out she’s a bit jealous of this year’s line-up.

Because far from being scared of Australia’s native creepy crawlies, it was the heat that worried her ahead of the show. “[Wales] would have been ideal for me… because I’m a red head so it was a real worry going to Australia,” the Fiz Brown actress admitted.

“That was one of my biggest fears, that it’s going to be too hot.”

She continued: “Everyone else was thinking, ‘Bikini, sunbathing’ and I was dreading it, but actually on our year, it chucked it down all the time. Everyone else was gutted but I was secretly pleased. So Wales would suit me perfectly.”

While I’m a Celebrity‘s move from New South Wales to Wales may have suited Jennie better, previous winner Vicky Pattison recently revealed she thinks the new location will make the experience harder for stars.

Not least because there’ll be “a lot more sheep testicles”.

“I do think they’re going to find that really hard. It’s just going to add another dynamic to it,” she said of the move. “I think I would struggle, because you fire yourself up. You get all excited that you’re going to be in the jungle shower, and in the famous camp.”

2015’s Queen of the Jungle is looking forward to the new series nonetheless. “Now it is going to be really different,” Vicky added. “[And] on the plus side, they’re the first to ever do this, they’re paving the way for something new.”

I’m a Celebrity will return later this year on ITV.

The Wingraves theory that has The Haunting of Bly Manor fans buzzing

Published

on

By

After the series debuted on Netflix in October, the cause of the Wingraves’ deaths was a matter of principal concern among the fans. Theories ranged from murder-suicide to the almost-too-on-the-nose “horrific train crash.” After Thomas confirmed that a tragic plane crash was, in fact, to blame, fans turned their speculative attention to what crash it might have been.

As the theory goes, the Wingraves were likely passengers on Air India Flight 182, a 1985 flight that went down after a bombing attack perpetrated by a terrorist group. If that’s the case, it certainly makes sense that the Wingraves bodies couldn’t be recovered — an important plot point from the series. The timing and geography certainly works, and the facts line up a little bit too perfectly …

Quick, somebody slide into Henry Thomas’ DMs demanding answers!

‘The Spanish Princess’ Just Secretly Set the Stage for the Rise of Anne Boleyn

Published

By

The Spanish Princess Season 2 has the painful task of showing us where a happy marriage goes wrong. Catherine of Aragon (Charlotte Hope) and Henry VIII’s (Ruairi O’Connor) union started off as love match, but politics and grief over the deaths of their infant children drove them apart. As we see in The Spanish Princess, the two royals may love each other, but there are vultures in their court. These schemers are happy to drive wedges between the King and Queen if only to push ahead their own agendas. While Catherine is focused on the rising clergyman Wolsey (Philip Cumbus), she might want to keep an eye on the tweens accompanying Princess Mary (Sai Bennett) to France…

Yep, young Anne Boleyn appeared as an Easter egg in tonight’s episode of The Spanish Princess. Which means we might yet see the rise of one of the most scandalous queens in British history…

The Spanish Princess has always been Catherine of Aragon’s story, but in Season 2, we’re starting to see the unflappable royal’s grip on power slip away. After losing her firstborn son in the cradle and miscarrying her second, Catherine’s not only juggling her own mental health issues, but dealing with Henry’s disappointment in her. As Queen of England, her primary duty is producing an heir.

Frost teased she wouldn’t confirm, but Matthew Graham said, “I think it’s better to say: for those who know their history and know the family that those girls come from, that family is named and referenced quite a bit.”

Frost pointed out that the Boleyns had already been referenced in Season 1 — and they had been. “You’re not wrong to look out for those things,” Graham said.

In tonight’s episode, tween Mary Boleyn is played by Bessie Coates, while raven-haired Anne is played by Alice Noakes. The two girls are obviously still in their early teens, but as the show continues to trudge forward in time, we can probably expect older versions of both Boleyn girls to factor into the drama of The Spanish Princess. Historically, Mary Boleyn was one of Henry’s many famous mistresses. Anne, on the other hand, infamously forced Henry’s ultimate divorce from Catherine and the nation’s break from the Catholic Church.

It looks like The Spanish Princess Season 2 is only going to get more dramatic in the weeks to come…
