Ex-tra on the Beach
Kim throws a Mouse party A Swift response
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!
