Ex-tra on the Beach

Kim throws a Mouse party A Swift re­sponse

Sunday Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - Watts the Goss -

MTV’s Ex on the Beach is get­ting a re­vamp for 2018 in a bid to sal­vage rat­ings.

I can re­veal the next batch of con­tes­tants will be flown to Mex­ico in March for six weeks – and they’re plan­ning on hav­ing LGBT cou­ples too.

Other changes in­clude bring­ing back orig­i­nal cast­ing agent Jake Court to help find “high-qual­ity” con­tes­tants, and tak­ing the show to 10 episodes. The rat­ings dropped last sea­son to 525,000 from 805,000 the year be­fore, while ITV2’s Love Is­land av­er­aged 1.7 mil­lion – up 700,000 on 2016.

A show source tells me: “They made a mis­take try­ing to com­pete with Love Is­land. So, they’re go­ing to try air­ing it around May in­stead.

“They’re go­ing all out to make it the best one yet.” ON A ROLL Kim and North en­joy Dis­ney ride TAK­ING AIM Kids tar­get fun at park

RAT­INGS I caught up with Jack Jones of Tram­po­lene for a lit­tle chat...

That will prob­a­bly be my Paula Rad­cliffe mo­ment dur­ing a gig... one of the down­sides of hav­ing Crohn’s dis­ease. At least it wasn’t broadcast around the world... but I didn’t win any medals ei­ther.

An en­gage­ment ring, that I never gave to the per­son I bought it for. And then I lost it. I’m pretty bad at los­ing things.

Very chuffed and grate­ful. It’s a big chance for us to show what we can do. I had a text ask­ing if wanted to sup­port LG and replied YES YES YES YES YES...PLEASE.

I’m the love child of Robert Smith and Janet Street-Porter. Dua Lipa has re­vealed her hopes for a duet with Tay­lor Swift. Talk­ing to me at the KISS House Party, the New Rules singer told me she posted a pic of her­self in a Tay­lor Swift shirt... and the US singer re­posted it on Tum­blr. She said: “I’ll reach out to Tay­lor for a col­lab­o­ra­tion via Tum­blr.” Make it hap­pen, ladies!
