What the celebs are talking about this week


“I got on the bike about three days afterwards and I realised I wasn’t scared any more. The worst thing had happened and that anxiety had gone. There was just a total blankness, a pain that really overwhelme­d it.”

Olympic champion cyclist Katie Archibald talked about coping with the sudden death of her partner Rab Wardell ahead of the World Cycling Championsh­ips in Glasgow. You’re a fighter Katie and we’ll be cheering you on!

“It’s hard not to feel incensed when there are so many people posting about how fearless she was, people who would never in a million years align themselves with anybody who stood for something or had anything remotely controvers­ial to say. If you can’t stand up for people in life don’t do it in death.”

Singer Lily Allen on the public outpouring for late Irish singer Sinéad O’Connor, who was also an activist known for fiercely opposing issues such as the child abuse scandal in the Catholic Church and the sexualisat­ion of female musicians.

“Finty’s arrival has left me in awe of my body all over again. I carried the flame and birthed the fire. People have so much to say about other people’s choices with their bodies. This is what my body looks like post-birth.”

Ex reality star Ferne McCann, above, welcomed her second daughter, Finty, last month. She got candid in a lengthy Instagram caption this week accompanyi­ng a photo of her post-baby body. Ferne said she is ready to feel confident in her own skin and we love the message she is spreading. Good on you Ferne!

“I got stabbed in the leg and in the stomach because of a fight on Boxing Day and it was an idiotic situation. I remember walking out of the house to walk up to the hospital holding my leg and a police car drove past and I waved them down and I said ‘he’s in there with a knife’.”

Strictly star Anton Du Beke opened up about an altercatio­n with his drunken father when he was a child. He admitted he hasn’t opened up about the incident before, and that even friends and family would be shocked to hear about it. He said his focus is and always has been on moving onwards and upwards.
