Gotta sign that NDA
Don't mess with celebrities and their clandestine sex lives; such was the message that come through this week, thanks to Love Island. Contestant Natasha not-so-subtly hinted to spending "two nights" with old mate Justin Bieber, but she'll be damned if she tells us much more. So what's the deal with water-tight NDAs around both sex and abuse?Plus, Hugh Grant was married this week in a spectacularly low-key affair, so is he officially Britain's most reluctant celebrity? And of course, the crazy White House wo...

Love Island Australia is white. Too white

It's a royal wedding extravaganza
It’s like Christmas, but better (!!!) with fashion and weddings and grandeur and tabloid drama.Yes, it’s royal wedding week and we’ll be damned if we aren’t spending (almost) the whole show on it.

Silly, Kim.You can find the cringe Ryan Seacres...
