Dermot, 47, has been in a relationship with his wife Dee for over 18 years.

Ben Shephard tends to keep his family life out of the spotlight, but on Monday, the Good Morning Britain star made a rare comment about his son Sam as he celebrated his 15th birthday during lockdown. The doting dad opened up about the teenager's big day live on TV, telling co-host Charlotte Hawkins: "It's my son Sam's 15th birthday today. I think he might be up now." Ben then revealed that he was sending a virtual birthday card to Sam by mentioning his birthday live on TV, before admitting what his son really thought of his dad being on the telly. "A mention from TV from your old man – he is so unbothered by it," he laughed, before adding: "15 years old – amazing.

If I had a ballot, I’d put Get Out at the top — for originality, focus, timeliness, and execution. It’s a win that’d make me cheer, and that feeling can be a tiebreaker for voters: “What name would I be happiest to hear when the envelope is opened?” Second through fifth place is a genuine toss-up for me. Darkest Hour and Three Billboards wouldn’t be there, but a win for any of the remaining contenders — we haven’t even talked about Call Me by Your Name or Phantom Thread — would make me smile.

You gotta hand it to Tanya. She really wants to be there. But at the end of the day, she’s out of her league with these ladies. You can see her sweating. You can see all the drafts of different reads that she had to go through to get to the B+ one she settled on. It’s all so forced. The person who exposes this extra energy on the reunion was, of course, Kenya Moore, because it is Kenya’s God-given gift to sniff out a person’s insecurity and exploit that for all its worth. When fighting with Kenya about the Cookie Lady (who does not make a physical appearance during the reunion, thank God) Tanya quipped, “Mark has a whole desert bar and restaurant in New York. You were in the Sunken Place,” which might have landed better if she hadn’t referenced a movie from three years ago. “Nice read, Tanya. You’re doing a great job,” said Kenya. “You’re so corny,” she added, just to throw a dash of salt in the wound. … [Read more...] about The Best Moments From
