Corrie fans aghast as Chesney and Bernie smash Kel Hinchley’s face into floor

Coronation Street fans were aghast after Chesney and Bernie smashed Paedophile Kel Hinchley's face into wall on tonight's episode.

Bernie and Chesney were chatting about Kel, and Bernie wanted to take her revenge out on the man who abused her son.

She said to Chesney: "What if he gets away with it?"

Chesney replied: "You can't force justice to happen."

Bernie was mortified that Kel was about to get away with his crimes, so she rushed to find him, as Chesney followed.

They rushed to the precinct where Kel works as a security guard.

Bernie proceeded to write "paedo" next to the abuser's photo, while people began to gather around her.

After causing a scene, Bernie stated to everyone that Kel is a "child abuser" but no one believed her.

Frustrated, she rushed to Kel and grabbed him, trying to push him to the ground.

Chesney ran to her aid and proceeded to push Kel's face into the ground by mistake.

Kel's nose was dripping with blood as Bernie and Chesney were escorted out by security.

Fans flocked to Twitter, cheering on Bernie for standing up for her son.

One said: "Go on Bernie babe!"

While another typed: "Ooh Bernie!"

"Yes Bernie!" said a third.

However some thought her actions didn't help, and said it wasn't Chesney fault as he tried to help Bernie.

One said: "You have just made things worse Bernie."

While another tweeted: "Chesney did nothing wrong."

Ashley Graham’s Husband Cradles Her Bare Baby Bump In Stunning ‘Vogue’ Photo Shoot — Pic

Ashley Graham was front and center for Vogue’s January 2020 cover, showing off her baby bump while opening up about changing ‘the narrative’ of pregnancy.

Ashley Graham, 32, couldn’t have looked more powerful and radiant on Vogue‘s January 2020 cover, featuring the supermodel in a gorgeous, flowing gold Oscar de la Renta caftan with Azlee rings, while holding her growing baby bump. Ashley is one of four stars to be featured on the print magazine’s cover in the new year, and her solo photo was just as stunning as the second image in the magazine. Taken by legendary photographer Annie Leibovitz, the other photo features Ashley with her husband, Justin Ervin, as he cradles Ashley’s bare belly beneath a Brunello Cucinelli blouse while the couple recline on the beach. It’s a beautiful, raw image of the pair, who appear so at peace, concealing beneath their visages the excitement of being first time parents!

Ashley, who has actively used her platform to discuss body acceptance and confidence, opened up to Vogue about the changes her body has gone through since becoming pregnant and how she wants to change societal assumptions of the pregnancy experience. “I feel like it’s important to kind of change the narrative,” Ashley confessed. “It’s normal to feel scared, and not be one of those women who are like, ‘Oh, it’s so great!’ Just be scared out of your mind. That’s normal.”

But while the body positive activist eventually found the right mindset to take on her pregnancy and the exciting, nerve-wracking next phase of her life, she still admitted to feeling like “I didn’t have anyone to talk to. I was gaining weight rapidly. And I felt alone,” she confessed in the profile. “And the one piece of advice that my stylist, Jordan Foster, gave me was, ‘Make pregnant friends.’ None of my friends were in relationships, let alone pregnant. And now I have nine pregnant friends.”

It was Ashley’s support system that really became her stronghold and anchor throughout her pregnancy, and she routinely has gushed about her newfound community during the past year. But there’s also a natural ferocity to the model and activist, who wholly believes in “being your true, honest self. And the more you are, the more accepted you are, and the easier it is to navigate through success. I don’t have a persona. This is it.”

During her pregnancy, Ashley has boldly moved to continue her work, by shifting the conversation on women’s bodies, sizes and how we perceive the ideal look. Ashley, herself, finds that “women are embracing plus-size again, they’re embracing the word fat, they’re embracing curvy and big girl, because women are not one-dimensional.”

Once Ashley began to wholly embrace her body, “my career really started to take off.” She further explained, “I’ve tried every diet known to man, but they don’t work, because I’m a curvy woman—a big-boned, healthy, corn-fed Nebraska girl. It is who I am.” Just as she is, Ashley has helped to redefine beauty standards. With her baby, a son, due this coming January, fans cannot wait to see how she continues to use her platform and transform the conversation on women’s bodies, beauty and confidence.

R. Kelly Faces New Bribery Charge Regarding His Illegal Marriage To 15-Year-Old Aaliyah

A new criminal charge is being brought against R. Kelly for allegedly bribing a public official in 1994 to obtain a fake I.D. in order to marry his then-15-year-old girlfriend Aaliyah.

Per legal documents obtained by ET, federal prosecutors in Brooklyn are accusing the Ignition (Remix) rapper of paying off a government employee in Illinois for the identification card which listed the songstress’ age as 18.

Prosecutors allege Kelly “together with others” paid an official for “the creation of a fraudulent identification document” for a “Jane Doe” on August 30, 1994. The then-27-year-old singer is believed to have wed the emerging star the following day.

The Grammy winner’s former tour manager, Demetrius Smith, has claimed in several interviews (including the controversial docuseries Surviving R. Kelly) that he facilitated the fake I.D. purchase on his client’s behalf, in order for the two to wed. While the pair of singers long denied ever getting married, their marriage was later legally annulled by a judge in Michigan per Aaliyah’s parents in February 1995.

The new charge has been added to the existing racketeering indictment filed against the 52-year-old in the Eastern District of New York which alleges, in part, that he coerced underage girls into illegal sexual activity.

Steven Greenberg, Kelly’s lawyer, stated in an interview with Good Morning America earlier this year that his client was unaware of her age, and accused the deceased songstress of lying about how old she was at the time. Reporter Linsey Davis questioned Greenberg about the marriage at one point, asking (below):

“Was he married to Aaliyah when she was 15? So then, 15 is not of the age of legal consent, right?”

With little room to lie, Greenberg admitted for the first time the R&B singer “was married to her when she was 15.” He added:

“My understanding is that she did not claim to be 15. And in order to get married she had to lie about her age, And is saying he had no idea.”

However, the evidence says otherwise. A video surfaced shortly after the GMA interview with the accused on tape in 1994 stating he was producing a talented “14-year-old girl” in Aaliyah.

The musician has vehemently denied all accusations made against him, and currently faces four different sets of charges in three states, and is currently in an Illinois jail. His trial in New York is scheduled to begin in May 2020.

Westchester family found dead in home were ‘the nicest people’: neighbors

The family of four that was found dead inside their Westchester home this week in a suspected murder-suicide was remembered Friday as “such a happy family.”

“They’re the nicest people,” said neighbor Rebekah Lee, who lives on the same tree-lined block on Romer Avenue in Pleasantville where the family lived.

The family, including two young children, were found dead Thursday afternoon by police after school officials called authorities and asked them to do a wellness check since the children never made it to school that day.

Their identities and causes of death were not yet released by police.

But sources had told WABC that the father killed his wife and his two children before taking his own life.

“I see the children and mother every day because it’s a walking community,” said Lee, who added that the family moved into the four-bedroom, Colonial-style home several years ago. “The last time I saw her would’ve been [Wednesday] and we had a big joke about her daughter being out of a stroller.”

Neighbors said the children were in second grade and pre-K at the Bedford Road School less than a half-mile away.

“The kids would always wave and smile,” Lee said. “There was nothing amiss.”

She said the children’s father “seemed very gentle.”

The deaths stunned the close-knit community.

Mary Fox-Alter, superintendent of the Pleasantville School District, said the family “was very well known to many people in Pleasantville, with many levels of connection,” according to lohud.com.

“The kids were warm, loving, kind, caring, vibrant,” Fox-Alter said. “Many in our community have lost a friend, a classmate, so much more.”

Fox-Alter said principals, psychologists and counselors met with teachers at all three district schools Friday morning before students arrived to discuss grief counseling.

“We are opening our doors to the community, so that people have a place to convene with counselors and be surrounded by a community that cares,” the superintendent said.

Meanwhile on Friday, the block where the family lived remained cordoned off by authorities as police investigated the grisly incident and were spotted going in and out of the family’s home.

The 2,250-square-foot home, built in 1916, last sold for $786,500 in October 2016, according to Zillow.

A heartbroken NYPD officer, whose wife teaches at the school that the young children attended, left flowers and a stuffed teddy bear near the scene.

“This takes your breath away. I felt like I needed to do something,” the officer said. “I’ll never understand what would drive anyone to do this.”

Gooseberry cream, anyone? Quality Street reveals discontinued flavours

Gooseberry Cream, anyone? The discontinued flavours of Quality Street that used to feature in the tin – from an Apricot Delight to a Fig Fancy

  • Chocolates used to contain variety of flavours which are no longer available
  • Includes a Mint Fondant, Hazelnut Éclair, Vanilla Octagon and Fig Fancy
  • The iconic ‘purple one’ used to contain Brazil nut in caramel instead of a hazelnut
  • British confectionery company reveals discontinued sweets from octagonal tin

It wouldn’t be Christmas without someone brandishing a colourful tin of Quality Street – leading to a fight over the last Green Triangle.

But not all of the flavours we’ve come to know and love in the purple octagonal box have been part of the mix since the sweets were created.

A Quality Street representative has revealed there used to be a whole host of different choccies which have since been discontinued, reports Delish. 

They also provided a series of sketches of the 18 original varieties of chocolates which filled the tin.

It wouldn’t be Christmas without someone brandishing a colourful tin of Quality Street – leading to a fight over the last green triangle

Many of the discontinued sweets are fruity concoctions, with a Gooseberry Cream, Apricot Delight, Fig Fancy (in a light brown wrapper) and Fruits of the Forest Crème (in a pale purple wrapper) among the mix.

The Gooseberry Cream, which was encased in a green wrapper, featured a light green fondant with a dash of gooseberry preserve, covered in milk chocolate, while the Apricot Delight came in a blue wrapper and was a square chunk of apricot flavour jelly coated in milk chocolate.

Meanwhile the iconic ‘Purple One’, which is a crescent-shaped chocolate containing runny caramel and whole hazelnut, used to feature a Brazil nut. 

The sketches of the original Quality Street show how the sweet – then called Chocolate Creme Toffee Brazils – used to look, with a description explaining how the Brazil nut was ’embedded in a lovely rich toffee which is as soft as a fondant’.

These original sketches show the 18 original varieties of chocolates which once filled the tin

Many of the original Quality Street sweets were a traditional blend of chocolate and toffees

The current Milk Choc Block, in a green wrapper, replaced the Milk Chocolate Round, while the Mint Fondant, in a pale green wrapper, was akin to the current Strawberry Crème, but with a mint crème filling.

There was also a wider range of toffees in the tubs back in the day, likely down to the origins of Quality Street. 

These included a Chocolate Nut Toffee Cream, a Malt Toffee (later replaced by Toffee Deluxe), a Toffee Square (a small square of very hard toffee in a metallic pink wrapper) and a Chocolate Toffee Cup (now the Caramel Swirl).

Quality Street was invented in 1936 by Harold Mackintosh, who inherited his father John’s toffee factory.

John and his wife started out with a shop in Halifax, where they created a new sweet by blending hard toffee with soft caramel.

They were so popular that the operation was expanded in 1898, with the couple opening the world’s first toffee factory.

Harold’s vision was to produce boxes of chocolates – back then only affordable for the wealthy – that were accessible to the working classes, presented in a brightly coloured tin with the sweets individually wrapped.

The name was inspired by J.M. Barrie’s play, with characters dressed in Regency era costumes on the front – known as Miss Sweetly and Major Quality.

They featured on all Quality Street boxes and tins until 2000, with the original models being Tony and Iris Coles – the children of Sydney Coles, who designed the advertising campaign that first appeared in an advert on the front page of the Daily Mail on May 2, 1936.

The brand was acquired by Nestlé when the company bought Rowntree Mackintosh in 1988. 

In September we reported Nestlé cut the size of the family favourites for another year, with tubs shrinking from 720g to 650g.

Beleaguered customers have complained they’ve been hit by ‘shrinkflation’, as the tubs shrunk by 70g – with the RRP remaining the same at £7.74.

In 2014, Quality Street went from 820g down to 780g (wrapped weight), while in 2017, the tubs reduced in size and weight from 780g to 750g.

In 2018, the sweet Christmas staple that is shared across the nation remained the same price at £5 but was reduced from 750g to 720g.

Nestlé said it had chosen to invest in new designs, sweets, wrapping, and larger tins with a more expensive mix.

Customers can buy a 650g tub or 800g, 1kg, 1.2kg and 2kg tins, with prices set by retailers.

Who is Andy Whyment’s wife Nichola Willis and do the couple have any children? – The Sun

SOAP star Andy Whyment seems to be loving his time in the I'm A Celeb jungle so far and he is very close to a potential spot in the final and having a chance to win the show.

But despite enjoying his time on one of his favourite shows, the Corrie star is most certainly missing his family, so what do we know about them?

Who is Andy Whyment's wife Nichola Willis?

Andy Whyment's wife is 32-year-old Nichola Willis.

The pair first got together 14 years ago and married each other in 2007.

Before entering the jungle, Andy, who has played Kirk Sutherland in Corrie for 19 years, said he has a great relationship with his wife.

He told OK! Magazine: 'She’s gorgeous!’ ‘I’m a very lucky bloke, we’ve been together 14 years and we just don’t argue, we get on so well."

The couple live in Atherton, a town in Wigan.

Do the couple have any children?

Andy and Nichola have two children together, 11-year-old Thomas and 9-year-old Hollie.

Andy was seen sobbing in the bush telegraph on I'm A Celeb, sad about how much he missed his children.

He was seen crying again on last night's episode of I'm A Celeb after his letter from home was read out.

However, the 38-year old will not be adding to his family after undergoing a vasectomy.

He said: "There's no chance of having anymore kids as I had the snip a few years ago."

"We said we wanted two kids and we have been really fortunate to have a boy and a girl."

What has Nichola Willis said about her husband being on I'm A Celeb?

Speaking to The Mirror, Nichola explained how herself and the children reacted seeing their husband and father cry when he received his care package.

She explained: “It really upset us to see Andy upset, when you see him laughing and joking it makes it so much easier as I know he is enjoying the experience.

“I knew it would mean an awful lot to him to get the photograph of the family."

“Honestly, I can’t wait to get to Australia so we are at least in the same country as him. I am hoping that I don’t cry and make a show of myself when I first see him but I will most definitely be giving him a big kiss and hug.”
