Jack revealed he was growing his beard for his new movie but it was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

‘The beard is being grown for a movie that was shutdown by COVID but we hope to see it come back,’ he said.

‘Shoulder length hair and an unkempt beard it says in the script. I’m still going.’

Jack also urged Australians to visit their local cinemas and support the film industry, which has been affected by COVID.

He said: ‘The government is cutting support for the industry at a time when we really most need it… We need that support right now.’

Jack’s interview comes after the Australian actor revealed he narrowly missed out on the lead in Schindler’s List.

The Steven Spielberg-directed film was released in 1994 and won seven Oscars, with Liam Neeson ultimately cast in the eponymous role.

Appearing on Anh’s Brush With Fame, he said: ‘I’d done camera tests, shot a couple of scenes, and then did a whole afternoon with Spielberg.’

Jack said Steven then told him that he had to catch a flight to New York, but they’d sign the contracts when he returned on the Monday.

But while he was in New York, the legendary director met up with Liam and had a change of heart.

hollyoaks chelsee healey apologises for flouting lockdown rules

Chelsee Healey has admitted she is ‘truly sorry’ for flouting lockdown rules by attending a rave during quarantine. 

The Hollyoaks actress, 32, was spotted attending the secret bash in June and later apologised on Instagram, saying she had been ‘irresponsible’. 

The TV star has now had a change of heart and told The Sun she has banned new boyfriend Jake McLean from visiting her home to ensure her daughter Coco, 3, stays safe.

She said: ‘It’s hard to resist the temptation of breaking the rules but they have to be followed. I made a silly mistake. I am truly sorry. I now realise it was stupid and irresponsible.

‘The whole COVID thing has definitely taken its toll on everyone. This time I will just have to abide by the rules until it blows over. You have to abide by the rules.’

Chelsee, who has played Goldie McQueen on Hollyoaks since 2016, lives in Manchester which is under Tier 3 lockdown restrictions while Jake is in London. 

She said: ‘I won’t be locking down with anyone I’m seeing because I’ve got a daughter and she’s my first priority, and he’s in London and that would be too much of a drama.’

Chelsee said she came under a great deal of stress after the lockdown rule break and had to temporarily delete her Instagram due to trolls. 

It comes after the actress was reportedly summoned by ‘appalled’ soap bosses after she flouted lockdown regulations in May. 

The star sparked backlash after she was spotted outside Lauren Goodger’s jailbird ex Jake’s home which is more than 200 miles from her Manchester abode. 

At the time, Chelcee was said to have been told off about her behaviour by soap bosses and they were ‘looking into what consequences she is likely to face’.

A source told The Sun: ‘Chelsee has been hauled over the coals by Hollyoaks bosses. She had been spoken to by bosses about her behaviour.

‘The cast represent the show and in their contract it states they can’t bring the show into disrepute.’ 

They added: ‘This isn’t a quick visit to a friend’s house round the corner she travelled over 200 miles to see a man. They are appalled at her behaviour and are looking into what consequences she is likely to face.’ 

Lauren previously dated Jake for four years between 2012 and 2016.

Jake, who was 18 at the time, was jailed for three-and-a-half years after conning his way into a mother’s house two days before Christmas in 2006, overpowering her before a masked gang ran in and raided the family home.

Lauren’s jailbird ex was part of vicious criminal gang and it is believed he only served half of his sentence, he is since said to have fathered a child with another woman.

As well as romancing Lauren, Jake also enjoyed a string of dates with TOWIE star Yazmin Oukhellou last year although it soon fizzled out.

Chelsee shares daughter Coco with her ex Jack Malloy, who was jailed for 12 months in 2015 for dangerous driving, using a vehicle without insurance and driving while disqualified.

She has since appeared on Celebs Go Dating in a bid to find love after their split in 2016.

Lily caused shockwaves around the globe when she was seen getting close with married Dominic West, 51, during a trip to Rome on October 11, before he insisted all was well in his marriage. 

The pair both star in an upcoming BBC series together and they recently enjoyed a two-day vacation in Italy where they were seen riding on a scooter through Rome.

Dominic appeared at one point to lean over and kiss Lily’s neck and they reportedly put on a cosy display during their British Airways flight home.

The day after Lily and Dominic’s cosy pictures emerged, the actress pulled out of the interview, with a source telling Page Six: ‘It was a two-day junket. 

‘On the first day, Lily was joined by the producers who it seemed were there to protect her from anyone asking questions about the photos.

‘The next day, when members of the HFPA and others were due to talk to her, she pulled out at the 11th hour. There was no explanation.’

‘They looked like a couple heading for a dirty weekend and they were all over each other. They were French kissing and there was a lot of necking going on.’  

Dominic is best known for playing Noah Solloway in Showtime drama, The Affair, which explores the emotional effects of an extramarital relationship between his character and a younger woman, named Alison Bailey (Ruth Wilson).

Emilia Fox has reportedly split from her fiancé Luc Chaudhary after an 18-month romance. 

The actress, 46, is said to have kicked out the talent agent from her London home and has also returned her engagement ring, according to a report from The Sun on Sunday.

A source speaking to the publication said of their broken engagement: ‘Emilia was disappointed to find they didn’t have a future but there’s no going back now.’

The source added: ‘It’s over. Some of her family weren’t keen on him and her friends are rallying round.’ 

Emilia and Luc met on the celebrity dating app Raya, and first sparked speculation they were engaged in December last year.  

The secret engagement came three years after she split from celebrity chef Marco Pierre White, 58, who she dated on and off between 2012 and 2016. 

MailOnline has contacted Emilia’s representatives for comment.

Emilia’s ex-fiancé Luc made his millions as a banker in London before starting his career in the showbiz world, he is a father to twin boys, and works at the International Artists Management.

At the time of their engagement, Emilia and Luc were said to have been ‘hopelessly in love’, and they were looking forward to tying the knot. 

A source told The Sun: ‘Emilia and Luc are hopelessly in love. They’re both parents and looking forward to blending their families into one. They’re desperate to start a family of their own too, but only once they are married.’ 

MailOnline contacted Emilia’s representatives for comment at time.

The Delicious star was previously married to Chernobyl actor Jared Harris, 58, after they tied the knot in 2005, however they separated three years later. 

At the time Emilia suggested the reason behind the breakdown of their marriage was due to the fact she suffered a miscarriage in 2007.

Emilia was also in a relationship with filmmaker Jeremy Gilley from 2009-2011 and the former couple share a nine-year-old daughter together, Rose.

Her dating history also includes an engagement to comedian Vic Reeves after meeting on the set of Randall and Hopkirk when she was a rising star.

They swiftly moved in together during the whirlwind romance while he was still married to his first wife Sarah, however Emilia and Vic split the following year.
