Who is Max Morley? Ex On The Beach 2017 star and Love Island winner who's rumoured to be dating Laura Anderson

The cheeky cricket ace dated 2016's Zara Holland after splitting from 2015 beau Jessica Hayes and is now rumoured to be dating 2018 runner-up Laura Anderson, but what else do we know about the sporting ace?

Who is Max Morley?

The attractive reality star was born January 24, 1993, in Huddersfield.

He is a former cricket star for Durham and is best known for his stint on Love Island in 2015.

Max ended up winning the reality show when he took part, and has since shown up on Ex On The Beach.

When was Max Morley on Love Island?

Max won the series of Love Island with his partner Jessica Hayes but the couple split just 40 days after leaving the villa.

There’s no love lost between the pair with Max recently revealing that he regrets his decision to share the £50K prize money.

Jess responded to a tweet asking if they were still together with “Am I Fk”.

Who has Max Morley dated?

The hunk has a long list of attractive exes who could make their way onto the show, including Charlotte Crosby, Naomi Ball and Zara Holland.

He dated Charlotte for four months, but things ended after she was pictured kissing fellow Geordie Shore cast member Gaz Beadle.

And some of them may have an axe to grind, as Max has been less than complimentary about some of his previous partners.

Speaking about former Miss Great Britain Zara, Max said: “The sex was just on the same basis as her personality, nothing special or to write home about.”

Is he dating Laura Anderson?

On October 16 2018, The Sun exclusively revealed Max was dating fellow Love Island star Laura Anderson following her split from Paul Knops.

A source close to Laura said: “Laura and Max have been going on secret dates for a number of weeks now. They’re really starting to get close and are definitely very well suited.

“He has really fallen for her and things are going well between them.”

Who is Nadiya Hussain, when did she win Great British Bake Off and who is her husband?

She's since fronted a range of TV programmes including her new BBC Two show Family Favourites…

Who is Nadiya Hussain, how old is she and what's her background?

Nadiya Hussain was born on Christmas Day to a British Bangladeshi family in Luton.

The 33-year-old is one of six children, with three sisters and two brothers, and her father was a chef who owned an Indian restaurant.

Her mother had no interest in food, however, and used the family oven for storage.

Nevertheless, Nadiya developed an interest in cooking during her school years.

She then taught herself how to cook like a pro by reading piles of recipe books and watching instructional videos on YouTube.

She has an obsession with fish fingers, claiming to have once eaten 18 in a row and this led to one of her most creative dishes – fish finger lasagne.

She later married and moved to Leeds, where she began studying for an Open University degree.

Who is her husband?

Her husband is Abdal Hussain, a technical manager at Computer Sciences based in Leeds.

They married in 2004 when she was 19-years-old.

Abdal has been a great support for her, especially throughout the competition.

He was quickly deemed a "hunk" by "Bake-Off" viewers.

When did Nadiya Hussain win Great British Bake Off?

In 2015 Nadiya was crowned the winner of The Great British Bake Off.

She was the sixth champion to have won the hit show.

During the final, she baked 16 iced buns, a raspberry-flavoured mille-feuille, and a multi-layered cake called "My Big Fat British Wedding Cake".

During her acceptance speech, she said: "I'm never gonna put boundaries on myself ever again. I'm never gonna say I can't do it.

"I'm never gonna say 'maybe'. I'm never gonna say, 'I don't think I can.' I can and I will."

What TV shows has Nadiya Hussain been on since winning Bake Off?

Nadiya regularly appears on The One Show on BBC One and had her own cookery show, The Chronicles of Nadiya.

She fronted her own BBC Two series called Nadiya's British Food Adventure, in conjunction with her new book of the same name.

The show follows her on a road trip around Britain to discover traditional and more quirky British dishes before recreating them back in her kitchen.

Nadiya has also written a children's book of stories and recipes, Bake Me A Story, and she is also writing three contemporary women’s fiction novels for Harlequin.

She also hosted the Big Family Cooking Showdown on the BBC with Zoe Ball.

From July 2018 she hosted Nadiya's Family Favourites on BBC Two – a show with recipes for family and friends.

Nadiya appeared on the Big Family Cooking Showdown

Is Nadiya Hussain going to be on Strictly Come Dancing?

The Sun revealed in November 2017 that Nadiya was set for Strictly Come Dancing in 2018.

A Strictly source said: “Producers have openly said how much they would like Nadiya on the show.

However, Hussain told Heart that she turned down the show, saying: "I love Strictly but a rule I've set for myself is never do anything that you love because it can kill the magic."

Morrisons is selling a sweet and savoury three-course Christmas dinner in a PASTY for £2.50

The supermarket's £2.50 hot pasty contains a starter, main course and even a pudding inside – but that might put some people off.

The Christmas Dinner Pasty, which is only available in stores, has an arrow carved into the top to show shoppers which end they should bite into first.

At the start, diners will get a mouthful of Ardennes pâté, sweet apple chutney and Melba toast.

In the middle, there's a more traditional filling of turkey with sage and onion stuffing, potato, hand-wrapped pigs in blankets, cranberries and a creamy sauce.

At the end, there's even a course of Christmas pudding soaked in brandy sauce.

If you want to try one, you should start at the arrow's head and not at its base – unless you want to tuck into Christmas pudding before your turkey, of course.

While some people might be worried they'd get an mouthful of turkey and pudding at the same time, it's actually traditional to have sweet and savoury fillings in one pasty.

Nineteenth-century miners ate part-savoury, part-sweet pasties so they could have a two-course dinner while they worked in the mines.

They were known as "tin miners' pasties" and were the perfect calorie-laden food to take down into mines as they could be easily carried.

They're also similar to the traditional Bedfordshire clangers, which are sometimes made with a savoury filling at one end and a sweet one at the other.

A short history of the Cornish pasty

It's thought Cornish pasties were invented more than 700 years ago in the 14th century.

But it wasn't until the 19th century, that they became popular, according to the Cornish Pasty Association, when the industrial revolution kicked off and more and more people started work in the mines.

Adults and children took pasties into the mines as their 'D' shape makes them ideal for carrying.

They were filled with cheap ingredients – potato, swede and onion – and without the meat that comes as standard today as it was too expensive.

Some people claim miners wouldn't eat the pasty crust because that's the part they would hold onto with their grubby hands.

But others say that this is just a myth, and miners would carry the pasties in a paper or muslin bag and eat every last scrap.

Some pasties were made with a savoury filling at one end and a sweet one at the other: the ultimate convenient two-course dinner.

But these are no longer that popular with shoppers, which is why they're rarely sold at supermarkets or at pasty shops.

Morrisons hasn't revealed how many calories are in one of its Christmas Dinner Pasties but it's bound to be more calorific than one of its standard pasties, which contain 373 calories each.

We've asked Morrisons for the calorie count and we'll update this story when we hear back.

It's worth bearing in mind that at £2.50, the pasty is 75p more expensive than one of its £1.75 hot Traditional Steak Pasties.

But shoppers are paying for the novelty factor, as part-sweet, part-savoury pasties are rarely found on the British high street.

Morrisons said the pasties cost more because it took its chefs three months to perfect the recipe, which includes individually hand-wrapped pigs in blankets inside the portable dinner.

It's the first time Morrisons has sold a three-course sweet and savoury pasty but it has previously sold tin miners' pasties with meat in one end and apple in the other.

Shoppers can buy the pasties from Morrisons' hot pie counters.

Morrisons has 494 shops in the UK, employing 100,000 people. You can find your nearest branch using its online store finder tool.

If a Christmas dinner pasty doesn't take your fancy, then Asda is selling a festive dinner pizza topped with pigs in blankets and even cranberry sauce.

Last week, Morrisons warned it may have to rise prices if the Sainsbury's and Asda merger goes ahead.

The weight is (finally) over as trimmed-down Romelu Lukaku is back among the goals

The Belgium forward bulked up as he helped his country to a third-placed finish in Russia.

But back at Carrington and during the early months of the Premier League season, things got heavy for the £75million man.

He felt tired after his efforts for his country and realised he was carrying too much ‘muscle’ to be effective for United.

Boss Jose Mourinho left him on the bench for the midweek clash with Arsenal — but he got exactly the right response here.

Lukaku looks half the man he used to be, but in this case it is no bad thing.

The 25-year-old scored one and had a hand in another as United put a difficult period behind them in some style.

Asked if he had bulked up out in Russia, Lukaku smiled: “A little bit of muscle, yeah.

“It was at the World Cup. I just felt great and I think I played great over there, and then when I came back it is a different type of game.

“In the Premier League, I cannot play with the same amount of muscle as international football.

“That was something that when I came back I knew straightaway ‘Nah, nah, I cannot play in this style like this’.

“I had to lose muscle. So you just stay out of the gym, drink a lot of water, and eat a lot of veg and fish and it helps.”

Maybe the extra weight he was carrying early in the season also contributed to some lacklustre displays.

He added: “After the World Cup, I was a bit tired.

“But, I had the same thing in 2014 after the World Cup when I went back to Everton. I was really in a slump after the World Cup.


"So, now I think I am at a decent level again and ready to go.”

Lukaku had managed just five United goals for the season before Saturday — and he revealed a heart-to-heart with boss Mourinho last week helped.

He added: “Me and the manager had good conversations in the last couple of days, where really he told me what he wanted from me.

“And I know from my side I have to do better, and I just keep looking forward and improving, trying to add to my game and help the team win.

“I was playing with not enough aggression, I think, not enough intensity. But against Fulham, I think I played with intensity like everybody else did.

“For me, I was happy to play at a decent level again and now it’s all about improving and continuing on a consistent basis.”

This was certainly more like Lukaku — although scoring goals against the Premier League’s lesser lights has generally come easily for him.

Fulham provided the perfect opportunity for him and United to get back on track. Stiffer tests undoubtedly lie ahead — notably at Liverpool on Sunday — but Mourinho’s men must be credited for their impressive first-half show.

Skipper Ashley Young gave them the early goal they needed with a screamer from a narrow angle after just 13 minutes.

Lukaku and the lively Marcus Rashford teed up Juan Mata to steer home a second and put United in complete control before the half hour.


And the game was effectively over before the break when Mata squared for Lukaku to tap home from close range.

Cottagers boss Claudio Ranieri managed to get his team organised at the break.


And they pulled a goal back when Aboubakar Kamara won and converted a dubious penalty after United midfielder Ander Herrera was harshly adjudged to have fouled him.

But Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa picked up a second yellow card moments later and any chance of a comeback evaporated.

Rashford got the goal he deserved when his vicious strike from a narrow angle seemed to take Fulham keeper Sergio Rico by surprise.

And that meant United had their biggest Premier League win of the season so far — and a first victory in five matches.


Quite what £89m record-signing Paul Pogba made of it — sat on the bench as an unused sub — is anyone’s guess.

But Lukaku’s response to being dropped would have given the Frenchman something to think about as he prepares to face Valencia on Wednesday.

Nobody at Old Trafford will be getting carried away.

They remain eight points outside the top four and will not meet many more obliging opponents than Fulham in the first half here.


But at least this is a start — and something to build on.

Lukaku added: “It has been a long time since we scored four goals and we enjoyed our football against Fulham.

“I think Fulham didn’t have one shot in the first half, so we showed what we could do.

"Everybody was really happy with our performance, but we have to continue like that.

“We have got an important week, an important game against Valencia and hopefully we can play with the same intensity like we did today.”

Ricky Gervais: How Much is He Worth and What's He Working on Now?

The British version of The Office, and the American re-imagining of the show, put Ricky Gervais on the map and helped make him one of the richest comedians of all time. However, writing, producing, and starring as David Brent on that show is only a fraction of the show business work he has on his resume. Here’s what he did before and after The Office, his net worth, and a look at his private life.

How did Ricky Gervais get his start?

The University College London graduate has worked in show business most of his adult life, but the TV and film work came later for Gervais.

After he graduated, he worked at University College booking bands to play there. Gervais also performed in the new wave band Seona Dancing, and managed the then-unknown band Suede for a time, according to Biography.

Gervais worked at London radio station Xfm in 1997, and by 1999 he was writing or starring on British TV shows such as The Jim Tavaré Show, Bruiser, and Meet Ricky Gervais. The Office hit airwaves in 2001. He won six BAFTA awards for the show, according to IMDb.

What is he doing now?

It’s safe to say The Office changed the course of Ricky Gervais career.

After the show ended in 2003, he appeared the Christopher Guest mockumentary For Your Consideration and Night at the Museum in 2006. Major Hollywood Movies such as The Invention of Lying, Spy Kids 4, and The Little Prince followed.

Meanwhile, Gervais never left behind his TV roots. He wrote and starred in Extras, Life’s Too Short, Derek, and several shorts as his character David Brent from The Office.

Oh, he also hosted the Golden Globe Awards from 2010-2012 and again in 2016. Plus, he served as a producer for the U.S. version of The Office, which is one of those shows that started off bad but then turned great.

Netflix bought his 2018 stand-up comedy special Humanity, and he’s the main creative force behind After Life, which should hit the streaming service sometime in 2019.

What is Ricky Gervais’ net worth?

It seems Ricky Gervais can hardly sit still, which is a good quality to have in show business. He’s constantly working on something, so he’s made a lot of money over the years.

His syndication rights for The Office earned him a fortune, but Netflix paid him handsomely for his latest works. The service doled out $40 million combined for Humanity and a forthcoming stand-up performance, according to Celebrity Net Worth. Between his show business work, real estate, and other assets, the Celebrity Net Worth pegs Ricky Gervais’ fortune at $110 million.

How does that compare to other The Office stars? Very favorably, as it turns out.

Rainn Wilson, who played Dwight Schrute on the American version of The Office, is worth $14 million.

Jim Halpert, er, John Krasinski is adding producing and directing to resume, and it’s helping his bank account. Krasinski’s net worth is estimated at $30 million. Meanwhile, Steve Carell’s net worth hits $50 million.

Is Ricky Gervais married? Who is his wife?

Ricky Gervais courts controversy by saying whatever he wants to say, but there’s no controversy in his love life. He and producer/author Jane Fallon might have the record for longest-lasting celebrity couple who aren’t married.

Gervais and Jane Fallon met in college in 1982, and they’ve been together ever since. There wasn’t a wedding ceremony, but they consider themselves a married couple since they share everything.

"There will be sights to lift your heart and moments to cause you concern, but there will be no swearing, no questionable taste and no sex, unless it involves animals at a distance.

"When we transmitted on Sunday mornings we had an unexpected fan club among students slowly coming round after lively Saturday nights.

“We provided a gentle awakening, and one classic video on YouTube showed half-a-dozen of them sprawled bleary-eyed around their digs with me on the television chatting away in some idyllic setting.”
