London Fashion Week is well underway but animal rights activists have taken to The Strand to protest the industry’s use of fur.

A group of female PETA supporters braved the February chill to don the painted slogan, ‘Wear Your Own Skin’, across their bodies.

And the activists urged FROW regulars and street style stars attending the shows to ditch fur, leather and shearling numbers from their wardrobes this season.

PETA Director Elisa Allen said: “Whether it’s the fur of a frightened fox or angora rabbit or the skin of a gentle calf, it’s not fabric and it’s not ours for the taking.”

She continued, “With so many innovative, high-quality vegan fabrics available, there’s simply no excuse for wearing an animal’s skin or hair.”

The initiative – whose motto is ‘Animals Are Not Ours To Wear’ – regularly campaigns to raise awareness of fur farms, where animals are slaughtered by poison or electrocution for their skin and fur.

According to PETA, more than a billion animals are killed for leather every year under conditions that include extreme crowding and deprivation. Some also undergo procedures such as castration and dehorning without any painkillers.

And as it is just day one of the fashion weekend, it’s likely that the animal rights organisation will have further protests lined up.

But PETA is no stranger to staging demonstrations, as protesters took to the streets to urge the industry to give up fur last season through the use of distressing images and videos of slaughter houses.

Ofcom has reached a decision after more than 2000 ‘Love Island’ viewers complained over a scene involving fan faves Dani Dyer and Jack Fincham.

Earlier this month, fans of the show were upset when Dani was left inconsolable after being shown a video clip of Jack in Casa Amor, where he had inadvertently wound up sharing a living space with his ex-girlfriend.

What Dani didn’t realise was that Jack had spent his time in the house declaring her love for her, even sleeping outside to avoid sharing a bed with anyone else as he felt it would be disloyal.

The misleading video clip prompted 2600 complaints to Ofcom, which the media regulator said they would assess before reaching a decision over whether to launch an investigation, as is standard procedure.

As reported by BBC News, Ofcom has now declared that they won’t be taking the matter any further, as they don’t feel ‘Love Island’ breached any of their guidelines, acknowledging that while Dani’s emotional reaction was difficult to watch, viewers should expect “emotionally charged scenes” and “scenes [which] have been engineered to test contestants’ relationships”.

This wasn’t the only moment of this year’s ‘Love Island’ that has led viewers to complain to Ofcom, with fans of the show taking issue with Adam Collard’s treatment of Rosie Williams, which a Women’s Aid spokesperson later suggested displayed “warning signs” that women should look out for in their own relationships.

Later, Ofcom received 557 complaints after new arrival Idris Virgo appeared to lie about a kiss between Jack Fowler and Georgia Harrison, clearly upsetting Laura Anderson, who was partnered with Jack at the time.

Love Island will not be investigated by Ofcom following 2,600 complaints made after Dani Dyer was shown a clip of boyfriend Jack Fincham in Casa Amor.

Dyer was sent a video of her boyfriend meeting up with his ex-girlfriend Ellie Jones when the villa was split in two earlier in the series.

In upsetting scenes, Dyer was seen inconsolable and sobbing in the Beach Hut after seeing the footage, prompting many viewers to complain that they had “purposely” upset Dyer for entertainment.

Around 2,600 unhappy viewers complained to the media watchdog – also pointing out ITV’2 failure to show her how Jack was sleeping alone and had declared his love for Dyer.

But Ofcom have now ruled that they will not be investigating the popular programme after accessing complaints.

A spokeswoman for the regulator said: “We carefully considered viewers’ concerns about the wellbeing of a female contestant on this established reality programme.

“While we understand her distress made for upsetting viewing, we consider that viewers are likely to expect emotionally charged scenes that have been engineered to test contestants’ relationships.”

Ofcom have also decided not to investigate heated scenes during which Rosie Williams and former beau Adam Collard clashed over his behaviour.

The scenes were criticised by fans and by charity Women’s Aid in the wake of their broadcast, with Collard later explaining why he was laughing on This Morning.

The regulator said: “We carefully considered viewers' concerns about the treatment of a female contestant by a male contestant on this established reality programme.

"While we appreciate this made for uncomfortable viewing for some people, we consider that viewers are likely to expect emotionally charged, confrontational scenes involving couples breaking up.”

Love Island continues Monday at 9pm on ITV2.

Ellie and Charlie were dumped from the Love Island villa last night – and another loved up couple will face the same fate tonight.

But in an explosive twist, the couple who the islanders choose to evict will be given the choice to leave, or split up and date the four bombshells who are gearing up to move in.

Sam and his “loyal” partner Georgia will go up against Wes and Megan, with their fate resting with their fellow islanders.

In scenes to be aired tonight the group take their time over a lengthy discussion before Josh reveals: “We would like to save this couple because, they have had their doubters, both inside and outside of the villa and as a group, we believe that they can go the distance.

“It wasn’t an easy decision at all, there was serious debate and people put forward very good points, pros and cons for both couples.

“But in the end we have managed to make a decision even though it was a hard one.”

Host Caroline Flack then reveals the twist, telling them: “You haven’t been saved by the public or your fellow Islanders. Therefore, you cannot stay on Love Island as a couple. This doesn’t have to be the end of your Love Island journey.

“It’s a huge decision, it’s either split up and remain in the villa or stay together and leave. Before you make that decision, I can tell you there are two new boys and two new girls waiting to enter the villa today.

“If you decide to split up and stay on the Island, you will each date two new Islanders and head back to the villa. You will decide who to couple up with on the next recoupling.”

She continues: “But you can’t be with each other. If you decide to stay as a couple, you will leave immediately without returning to the villa. You can take some time now to talk it out and come back to me with your decision.”

With Georgia’s every second spent reminding her mates how “loyal” she is, will she stick with Sam and pack her bags if it's them who face the chop?

Or will she “keep him on his toes” by opting to date the newcomers?

From Digital Spy

EastEnders' Danny Dyer is clearly in touch with his emotions, as he is crying "every night" while his daughter Dani is away from home taking part in Love Island.

Danny's wife Jo Mas made the revelation during an appearance on spin-off show Aftersun last night (July 15), admitting that he's also "a bit jealous" of the fun Dani is having.

"I think he's a bit jealous, he does cry a lot. Every night," Jo told Caroline Flack. "He really misses her."

As for Dani's new boyfriend, it seems he's earned the all-important mum-approval, with Jo adding: "I like Jack [Fincham]. I trust him yeah. I think he's caring for Dani, I think he's got her back."

Asked if she's seen Dani this happy in a relationship before, she said: "Yes I have, but I've not actually been a part of her progressing, so it's weird. She's really happy.

"She's got her morals. She knows she doesn't need to use her body in any relationship because she's got a personality."

Despite the fact that Dani and Jack are the show's golden couple, viewers aren't best pleased with them for betraying Charlie Brake's secret.

Charlie confided in Jack that his family sold a huge food business in the past and have a multi-million pound fortune as a result.

But, admitting that he worries his financial situation can attract women for the wrong reasons, he asked Jack to keep the news under his hat.

Well, you can guess what happened next...

Love Island continues tonight (July 16) at 9pm on ITV2.

From Digital Spy

There were some pretty big shockers during tonight's Love Island, including one poor couple being dumped after receiving the least public votes to save them.

While the Islanders were living it up at the Island Beach Club, Caroline Flack turned up to crash the party and reveal that one of the couples were about to be packing their bags.

It was soon revealed to be Ellie Brown and Charlie Brake who would be leaving the villa for good, leading to tears from the other Islanders.

There were quite a few viewers who weren't too impressed with the results, and some of them used some pretty strong language:

But it seems there are no hard feelings from Ellie and Charlie, as they've revealed that they have no regrets about their time in the villa.

"It's mad coming out with somebody who you actually like and you actually have a connection with and who you are in a relationship with," Ellie said.

"It almost seems too good to be true. We haven't even been on a date yet! So the first thing we need to do is go on a date. I feel amazing about it."

One of the biggest moments of tension in the villa this year came when Ellie had a massive fight with Georgia Steel over Georgia's constant claims about being loyal, but Ellie has insisted that they're "in a very good place" now.

"The argument Georgia and I had was heated, emotions had built up. We shocked ourselves with how well we dealt with it afterwards," she said.

"We both apologised and then it was never really spoken about again. When I left, she gave me a kiss and a hug and she said 'I love you, can we be friends?' and I said I loved her back. We are in a very good place."

But two people who Ellie and Charlie have a heck of a lot of love for are Jack Fincham and Dani Dyer and they reckon the couple could be getting engaged in the near future.

"Jack and Dani will be engaged by this time next year," Ellie said. "I think they'll be our winners and rightly deserved. They've been together from the start.

"They are obsessed with each other. Living with them, you can see how in love they are. Jack is going to put a ring on it soon."

And Charlie agreed, saying: "Jack and Dani definitely!" when asked which of their fellow couples would get engaged first.

It sounds like we need to watch this space for engagement news...

Ellie and Charlie have been unceremoniously dumped from Love Island in a surprise eviction that left no one shocked apart from them.

After showing all the chemistry of two cousins on a school trip to the Brecon Beacons, the genetically-blessed pair said their goodbyes during Sunday night’s episode after voters were asked to pick their favourite couple to stay.

After cutting over everything he said for the last two weeks and seeming generally exasperated every time he said “hi” (we feel this might have changed since she learnt his dad is worth £400m), it was no surprise to anyone when Caroline Flack announced that they were the next couple to be dumped.

We got a little hint that all was not well earlier in the episode when Ellie refused to apologise for their argument, with them both agreeing to brush everything under the carpet, which is obviously always the answer to every relationship problem.

“I just want to draw a line under this. It is so small and I hate waking up in the morning like this,” Charlie told her.

“Me too. Some things are best laughed off,” said Ellie, unaware that she’d be laughing her way straight out of the villa.

And while things might seem a bit too stable and loved up in the villa at the moment, producers teased the arrival of four new ‘bombshells’ at the end of the episode.

While we know that the arrival of Jennifer Lawrence and Ryan Gosling couldn’t break up Dani and Jack, we’re not so certain that some of the other couples will withstand such temptation. We’re looking at you, Jack and Laura.

Earlier in the episode, producers tried their best to cause more trouble in paradise by setting a viewer-voted-for poll on who were the best and worse couples.

After being in the top three least loyal couples, Georgia predictably kicked off, telling Sam: “I don’t understand why I was not in the loyal one when I’ve been loyal the whole time I’ve been in here… How am I not loyal?”

Erm, you might want to ask Laura, Georgia.

From Digital Spy

After professing their love for each other, Love Island's Zara McDermott and Adam Collard have shared the secret ways in which they communicated with each other in the villa.

Speaking to OK! Magazine, Adam explained: "We used to write messages to each other when we were in bed so other people couldn't hear what we were saying. We deleted our messages but the producers told me that they still have them all."

And, revealing that the lucky bunch get sent loads of new clothes direct to the residence, Adam added: "We get a sack full of clothes from Missguided delivered every couple of weeks. Everyone gets given their own sack of things that suit their style."

The pair, who spoke some more about loving each other and gushed about their "connection", also said: "Lots of people say our babies would be good looking!"

Their latest reveals come after the couple went Instagram official over the weekend – with Adam sharing a clip of Zara at Five Guys. "When your girlfriend is 10/10," he wrote.

Previously confirming just how serious he is about his new girlfriend, Adam told Caroline Flack on Aftersun that he "won the show too early" when he met her.

"Totally, I totally love Zara," he said. "The problem is I won the show too early, when I met Zara. I do love her."

Caroline then asked that all-important question – "Are you in love?" – to which Adam replied: "Yeah, 100%."

From Digital Spy

As if tonight's Love Island wasn't dramatic enough – what with Ellie Brown and Charlie Brake getting unceremoniously dumped after receiving the least public votes of support – those naughty producers have thrown in yet another twist.

No sooner had Ellie and Charlie packed their bags tonight than it was announced that four – yes, you read that right, FOUR – new bombshells will be entering the villa tomorrow (July 16).

We'll soon be meeting 23-year-old account manager Stephanie Lam, 23-year-old surfer Laura Crane, 31-year-old carpenter and model Paul Knops and 21-year-old DJ Josh Mair.

Stephanie, who calls herself a "girls' girl", says that she's looking for "someone who can make me laugh," but that she's also keen to make friends with the other girls, saying "friendship is important to me".

She's going to have a hard time going in amongst all those happy couples then...

Stephanie actually already has a connection with the show, as she admits to having previously dated last year's contestant Chris Hughes.

"We got friendly this year and have been on a mates' date but we're just friends," she says.

Surfer Laura, who's been travelling the world competing since she was 16, says she's looking for somebody "who knows what they want, who is confident in their own skin and who is ready for an adventure".

She's also spilled on the most disastrous date she's ever been on, saying that she "did a runner" from a guy who "told me everything about his life and didn't ask anything about me".

So the guys in the villa had better make sure they show an interest in Laura, particularly as she says she can't stand "arrogance".

Paul might be about to cause some serious disturbance in the villa, as he's admitted that he's got his eye on happily coupled-up girls Kazimir Crossley and Alexandra Crane.

"Physically the person I'm most attracted to in the villa is Kaz. She is beautiful. And Alexandra, I really like her aura, she seems to be a very relaxed girl and I think she can have a deep conversation – I feel she has a bit about her. I'd like to get to know her."

Although he describes himself as a "boys' boy", Paul says he's not going to keep his distance from the girls.

"I get on with girls very well. I know some of the girls are coupled up seriously, but I would still like them to get to know me and then make their own decisions about me," he said.

In a rather impressive claim to fame, Paul says that he used to be mates with Britney Spears of all people.

"I was the lead guy in the Britney Spears video 'Make Me'," he said. "Me and Britney were friends for a bit. I got to know her really well during the making of the video."

Josh, who claims to "always get what I want," admits that he has "had my eye on Georgia (Steel) for a while".

But he's "not putting all my focus on one girl," saying: "I want to get to know them all and go for whoever I think I'm getting the most connection back from."

And Josh, who's played music festivals alongside Stormzy, says he's not worried about upsetting the other boys if it means he gets the girl.

"I am a boys' boy, but if it comes down to the girl I want, I will step on toes to get her. I will choose a girl over a guy, definitely," he said.

Looks like things are about to get seriously shaken up in the villa...

Love Island will show the new bombshells entering the villa during its next episode, which airs tomorrow (July 16) at 9pm on ITV2.

"Who is America?" is both the title of Sacha Baron Cohen's first foray into television satire in more than a decade and the existential question on the lips of liberals living through the Trump presidency.

Trailed by a blaze of pre-launch publicity and a furious backlash from public figures who believe they have been pranked, its splashy debut won most attention Sunday for hoodwinking Republican politicians into endorsing a made-up plan to train pre-schoolers how to fire a gun.

The series brings seven episodes to pay-to-view channel Showtime years after the British comedian was last on television with "Da Ali G Show" -- his wannabe-rapper character interviewing the powerful and famous.

In "Who is America?" Cohen conjures up four new characters. Billy Wayne Ruddick Jr., is an opponent of "mainstream" media who debates healthcare with left-leaning Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.

There is Nira Cain-N'degeocello, a pink-hat wearing, ultra-liberal hippy, who dines at the home of a Trump-voting couple.

Rick Sherman is an ex-con turned artist who works in the medium of human feces and bodily fluids, and who meets a totally accepting California gallery owner who donates public hair to his paint brush.

Finally, Israeli "anti-terror expert" Colonel Erran Morad pranks Republicans into endorsing a concocted plan to teach children as young as three and four how to fire a firearm, along with a "Puppy Pistol."

Teasers for the new series saw US former vice president Dick Cheney signing a "waterboard kit" and Sarah Palin unleash a furious Facebook attack, upset to have been one of Cohen's pranked subjects.

Palin, the former vice presidential nominee and ex-Alaska governor who did not appear in the first episode, slammed the comedian's "evil, exploitive, sick 'humor.'"

But if early reviews are more muted, they are also mixed.

The New York Times called the first episode "tepid and inconsequential," and ill-suited to the times.

If The New Yorker waxed lyrical about "sporadically excellent conceptual art," trade magazine Variety warned Cohen's nihilism can "itch and irritate more than enlighten and entertain."

The Guardian praised "one moment of viral gold" but otherwise lamented "mostly a frustrating experience."

After "Da Ali G Show," which transferred from Britain to America, Cohen found success with hit movie characters such as bumbling Kazakh reporter Borat and gay Austrian fashionista Bruno.

His 2012 movie, "The Dictator," starring himself as a Moamer Kadhafi style tyrant was less well reviewed.

Ashley Greene threw caution to the wind on her honeymoon with Paul Khoury -- and left her clothes at home. 

The Twilight star took to Instagram on Friday to share a sexy snap from her and Khoury's vacation in Hawaii, where they appeared to visit a nude beach. Greene looked away from the camera as she posed in her birthday suit, with waves -- and a couple other (clothed) beachgoers -- in the background. 

"He keeps me wild and free. #nudebeach #whiteboycray #honeymoon," she wrote alongside the pic. 

Pubic nudity is illegal on beaches in state parks in Hawaii, though there are several places where people still get naked. "Clothing optional. We chose none obviously," Greene wrote in the comments, adding that her husband "obvi" chose to strip down as well. 

The 31-year-old actress documented her and Khoury's racy trip on her Instagram Story, revealing that they chose to celebrate the last day of their honeymoon on the nude beach. "That's very romantic," she said, laughing. 

The newlyweds didn't spend their whole honeymoon in states of undress, however, as Greene shared a sweet pic of them sharing a kiss in front of a waterfall on Saturday. "#bliss," she captioned the photo, while Khoury shared another shot of his wife enjoying Hawaii's nature. 

"I can’t describe the way this woman makes me feel. #MrsKhoury #honeymoon," he wrote alongside the snap. 

Greene and Khoury, an Australian TV personality, tied the knot in a star-studded ceremony outside of San Jose, California, last week. Approximately 120 guests were in attendance, including Greene's Twilight co-star, Robert Pattinson, as well as Zac Efron, Liam Hemsworth, Brittany Snow, Cara Santana, Evan Ross and Lauren and Aaron Paul.

The actress told ET about her wedding plans in March 2017, revealing that they definitely wanted to incorporate the outdoors.  "I think we want to have a really intimate wedding, and then kind of throw a big party after," Greene mused. "We want it to be outside -- we want it to be surrounded by a lot of nature. He's a really big nature buff."
