Pete Evans has made headlines in recent months due to his endless conspiracy theories, stubborn stance against vaccinations and strict Paleo diet.

And it appears the celebrity chef’s bizarre behaviour has finally caught up with him, as he looked worn out in his latest Facebook video titled ‘Morning update’.

The former My Kitchen Rules judge – who was released from his $800,000-a-year contract with Channel Seven last month – looked much older than his 47 years as he spoke to fans about his plans to open a new clinic.

Pete seemed fatigued as he spoke about his goals for the upcoming weeks – and his appearance was a far cry from his glowing promotional photos for the latest season of My Kitchen Rules, which were taken last year.

In the video, he encouraged viewers to ‘check out’ his new podcast with Jason Reynolds and enthused about ‘other docu-series’ coming soon.

The restaurateur also revealed he would be spending the day taking some pictures for his clinic, which opens soon, but failed to elaborate further on the new venture.

Pete, who has been married to model Nicola Robinson since 2016, has raised more than a few eyebrows lately thanks to his controversial conspiracy theories and rants against science and medicine.

On Monday, Pete waded into the Black Lives Matter movement as he called for protesters to tear down 5G towers following a series of unfounded rants about how high-speed internet spreads coronavirus.

He has previously suggested the technology is involved in the spread of the deadly virus – despite the federal government declaring 5G safe and scientists saying its radiation is incapable of penetrating human tissue.

But in a post on his Instagram Stories on Monday afternoon, the divisive chef shared a meme calling on those defacing historic statues as part of the Black Lives Matter movement to instead focus their energy on destroying 5G infrastructure.

‘Instead of tearing down old statues, if you could tear down those 5G towers that’d be great,’ the meme referencing a scene from the 1999 movie Office Space read.

Last month, Pete was released from his contract at Seven following a spate of controversial and often dangerous statements – mostly relating to coronavirus conspiracy theories.

In April, he was also fined $25,200 by the Therapeutic Goods Administration for promoting a lamp he claimed could help treat COVID-19.  

Adding to his controversies, Pete, who has also shared misleading information about immunisation, has gone on to insist that he is not an ‘anti-vaxxer’ but ‘pro-choice’.

Vaccinations are a simple, safe and effective way of protecting people against harmful diseases before they come into contact with them, the Australian Government says.

The jabs protect individuals and others in the community by reducing the spread of preventable diseases.

Meanwhile, Pete has been outspoken about his support of the Paleo diet, claiming it can help prevent autism.

NSW Deputy Premier John Barilaro will take four weeks off for mental health leave

nsw deputy premier john barilaro will take four weeks off for mental health leave

NSW Deputy Premier John Barilaro is taking mental health leave for up to four weeks after a tumultuous fortnight dominated by koala protection policy.

The outspoken NSW Nationals leader will miss next week’s sitting of parliament.

His deputy Paul Toole has been installed acting leader.

Mr Barilaro put himself in the firing line last week when he threatened to implode the coalition government if concessions on the state’s koala protection policy were not made.

He backed down after Premier Gladys Berejiklian gave him an ultimatum that Nationals MPs support the government or its ministers be sacked from cabinet.

He survived a no-confidence motion in state parliament on Wednesday despite senior government’s minister publicly disparaging his actions.

Ms Berejiklian said she had been advised by the deputy premier he was taking up to a month’s leave.

‘I have offered him any support he may need. I wish John and his family all the best during this time,’ Ms Berejiklian said. 

A source close to Mr Barilaro told The Daily Telegraph he was in need of a ‘rest’.

‘After nine months of helping people rebuild their lives after the worst fires in history, after dealing with farmers who have just faced the worst drought on record and compounded with losing his father a month ago, it’s time for a rest,’ the source said.

He was given a standing ovation on Friday morning after telling his party he would continue to fight against the koala policy.

Mr Barilaro said the policy would be the ‘nail in the coffin for farmers’ and strip them of their land rights.

The Koala Habitat Protection State Environment Planning Policy identified 123 trees that were needed as food or shelter for the animals.  

‘If we were to support that we would become the laughing stock of regional and rural NSW,’ Mr Barilaro earlier said.

‘This is the right thing to fight for on behalf of the community.’ 

Mr Barilaro will therefore miss a cabinet meeting on October 6 where the koala policy is expected to be debated. 

Colleagues of the deputy premier expressed concerns over his health this week.  

‘I am furious with him but on another level, I am very worried about the bloke. He is not in a good place,’ one senior Liberal minister said, The Sydney Morning Herald reported. 

More to come.

‘You have to be careful … because these things can escalate from nought to 100,’ Magistrate Andrew Hackett warned the woman. 

He also noted the incident was one that ‘speaks of high emotion’. 

She did not have a conviction recorded but was fined $500 after the guilty plea. 

‘Had you had prior convictions for violence, I would have recorded a conviction,’ Magistrate Hackett said.

craig phillips shares his top tips on how to add up to 20000 to the value of your house

From painting your front door to re-tiling the kitchen, these are the small DIY jobs that could add thousands to the value of your property. 

The first ever winner of Big Brother and makeover king, Craig Phillips, returned to our TV screens this week on Channel 5’s How to Add 20K To Your Home last night, where the trained brick-layer revealed his best DIY tips. 

Craig, who lives in Liverpool with his wife Laura and their newborn son, explained that updating your tiles or floors and painting your doors could make you sell your house faster.

If you made all these changes to your home you could stand to add more than £22,000 to its listing price, he believes.   

Speaking to Femail, Craig dived into more details on what affordable changes can easily made to your home and at what price.  

1. Re-tile a floor 

From painting your front door to re-tiling the kitchen, these are the small DIY jobs that could add thousands to the value of your property. Newly-tiled floors can add up to £5,000 to the value, according to first ever winner of Big Brother and makeover king, Craig Phillips

From painting your front door to re-tiling the kitchen, these are the small DIY jobs that could add thousands to the value of your property. Newly-tiled floors can add up to £5,000 to the value, according to first ever winner of Big Brother and makeover king, Craig Phillips

Cost: £35-£45 per sq meter

Added value to house: £2,000-£5,000

Craig’s tip:  ‘Floors can become worn out and damaged over time. So, before selling a home, replacing broken tiles, or re-doing the entire floor in the odd room, can instantly update and refresh the look of the house. 

‘Of course, new buyers often have ideas and preferences of their own, but a neutral colour palette and simple, sleek designs are more likely to be favoured by the majority, or at least leave the best impression on house viewers. 

2. Paint your fences

Cost: £150

Added value to House: £5,000 

Craig’s tip: ‘When tidying up the garden, don’t forget about the fences! Panels that have been left exposed to the elements for some time can begin to look damaged and shabby. 

‘But, with a quick lick of paint, this can reversed almost instantly.

‘Wooden fences should be treated at least once a year. And now is the perfect time to do just that as you can make the most of the last few dry days and prepare your woodwork for the months to come.’

Craig advised to use either a standard paintbrush or roller, or even a handheld paint sprayer for quick results. 

3. Tile a wall

Craig Phillips returned to our TV screens this week on Channel 5’s How to Add 20K To Your Home last night, where the trained brick-layer revealed his best DIY tips 

Cost: £20-£40 per sq metre

Added value to house:  £1,000-£2,000

Craig’s tip:  ‘A tiled wall isn’t just for kitchens and bathrooms anymore. In many modern homes, tiled walls have become an accent feature of living rooms and entryways, too.’ 

4. Revamp your backsplash 

Cost: ‘If you do it yourself, this can cost £60-100 for materials. You could even pick up free tiles from Freecycle!’

Added value to house: £500

Craig’s tip: ‘The heart of the home, the kitchen, is one of the most frequently used rooms in a house. 

‘As a result, spills and splotches are to be expected. But no matter how much we scrub, some stains just won’t budge. So, why not revamp your kitchen backsplash area with some new tiles? This can instantly update the look and feel of the room and opting for a clean, sleek design, can also make it appear more modern.’

He advised to start with placing a tile in the centre of the area and work out towards the left and right of it to ensure a symmetrical design.

He added that tiles may differ, but the application and method is always the same, explaining: ‘For these walls, tiles which liken bricks and stones often look best, some of which won’t require grout either.

Craig gave some practical tips if you want to lay your tiles yourself, saying: ‘Once the tiles have been placed on the wall, following the same staggered method as above, they should be left to dry for 24 hours.

‘After this, use a damp sponge to wipe down the newly tiled surface to remove any residue or excess adhesive. You should do this two or three times over a 40 minute period, before finally cleaning the wall with a dry tissue.’ 

5. Get a grip of your handles

Cost: £300-500

Added value to house: £1,000 – £3,000 

Craig’s tip: ‘Whether it’s the doors, drawers or kitchen cabinets, handles are constantly in use and consequently, can become damaged or loose.’ 

He added it was worth revamping the handles throughout your home by cleaning, tightening or replacing them, saying: ‘This is a quick and easy DIY project that will cost you very little. All you will need is a screwdriver and the handle selection of your choice.’

Craig revealed: ‘Keeping things like kitchen drawer and cabinet pulls or internal door handles the same throughout the room or house will help to create a sleek, professional and modern look that can add value and appeal to the home.’

6. Paint your doors

Cost: £150 – £200 for doors ; £1000 for window frames

Added value to House:  £2,000 if done professionally

Craig’s tip:  ‘Whether it’s your front door, back garden door or internal doors, freshly painted entryways make a huge difference to the charm of a home.

‘Front doors in particular, create curb side appeal and consequently, a first and lasting impression on potential buyers before they even enter the house,’ he added.

While some liberties can be taken with the colour of your front door, Craig advised to stick to keep the colour the same for each of the doors inside the house, saying: ‘It’s best to opt for neutral tones, which compliment the colour of the walls, floor and furniture.’  

7. Furnish your garden

Cost: £100 

Added value to house: £2,000 

Craig’s tip: ‘While garden furniture and accessories are expensive and only temporary solutions that also require space and storage, a custom DIY pallet project might do the trick. 

‘Using some pallet wood, which you can get free of charge from local farms or builders’ yards, build a corner bench seating unit to fit whatever space you have available.’ 

Craig also said that, the furniture, being a permanent fixture of the garden, should be treated and protected using appropriate paint and furniture wax.   

8. Decorate your garden

In the garden, planters like these are an easy investment to make, costing very little. They can add a value of £500 to £600 to your house (stock picture)

Cost: £50-£100

Added value to your house:  £500-£600

Craig’s tip:  ‘A well-kept garden can add value to any home, and plants and flowers are a great way of doing just that while introducing some life and colour into the space.’ 

However, some elbow grease is required in order to complete this feat, Craig added, saying: ‘Use the thicker and stronger skids of the pallet to create the frame of the planting trough, starting with the two longer sides.  

9. Make a mosaic 

Cost: £0-£15

Added Value to House: £50-£100

‘If you do opt to do some tile work, you are bound to have left over pieces laying around,’ Craif advised. 

‘Rather than throwing these away, why not make a mosaic design to use as a decorative piece for the garden?

‘Simply, map out a design – have a quick look online and you’ll be sure to find some inspiration – gather your pieces of tile, left over adhesive and a surface of your choice, and you’re ready to get underway.

‘For the surface, old mirrors, plant pots and sanded down tree trumps are great options,’ he added.

‘If you cut the shorter edges of these panels at a 15 degree angle, it will create a funnel-like shape, where the bottom of the structure is narrower and the top wider.

‘Fix the two sides together with some slats that have been cut to the width you want your trough to be. These slats will create the two smaller faces of the structure.

Craig said you could use more slats for the outside panelling, and to nail some along the bottom to create a base, explaining: ‘Sand the top edge down so it is flat. Create a framed lip around the top edge to create a neat and professional finish. 

‘Then, cut two smaller pieces of wood and attach these to both ends of the base of the structure to create shoes for it to stand on.

‘As the trough will be kept outside, coat it with a wood treatment or wax to ensure it stays looking tidy.’ 

10. Insulate the loft

Cost: £300-£500

Added value to house: £1,000-£2,000

Craig’s tip:  Craig explained that loft insulation not only will have value to your home, but also will be saving you money on energy bills. 

He said: ‘Of course, the prospect of lower bills can also be used as a selling point for potential buyers.’ 

He added that some local councils offer grants and schemes for free installation, ‘meaning all you need to ‘do yourself’ for this DIY, is run a quick online search or pick up the phone.’
