Asher Keddie has shared rare photos of her five-year-old son, Valentino, and the resemblance between the actress and her little boy is undeniable.

In a post on Instagram on Monday, the 45-year-old Offspring star posed a series of photos of her young son, something she rarely does.

Asher shares Valentino with her husband of six years, artist Vincent Fantauzzo, and it seems the child has inherited his mother’s wide hazel-green eyes and impish grin.

‘I love this boy,’ Asher captioned the pictures.  

And fans couldn’t help but point out the striking similarities between mother and son, with many branding Valentino a ‘mini Asher’.

‘He looks so much like you,’ commented one fan, while another wrote, ‘Mini you!’ 

‘Mini Asher, very cute!’ a third added, before a fourth chimed in: ‘Very cute, looks so like his Mama!’

‘Was there ever a little boy more like his Mamma?’ one fan asked.

In addition to Valentino, Asher also has a stepson, nine-year-old Luca, from her husband’s previous relationship.  

‘When you have children, they inform all your… well, they inform all my choices,’ she told WHO magazine in January 2019.

In an interview with InStyle last July, Asher said she and her husband were ‘conscious’ about raising their sons to be good people.

She said it was important for them to lay the groundwork while their sons were still young enough.

‘We are incredibly conscious – and to an extent concerned too – about the way we are raising [our boys] right now, as opposed to waiting until their teen years when they are going to navigate this kind of territory,’ she explained.

‘I am pretty consumed by my role as a parent and the choices that I’m making [now] to help my boys develop into thoughtful, confident, respectful gentlemen.’

Strictly’s Shirley Ballas, 59, reveals she’s gained 20lbs during lockdown

Published

Strictly Come Dancing judge Shirley Ballas has revealed she’s gained 20lbs after ‘eating day and night’ during the lockdown.

The former Latin dance champion, 59, said she’s determined to slim down again before the new series this autumn and has been following an intermittent fasting regime to get back down to her goal weight.

Shirley also gushed that she now believes her boyfriend Danny Taylor is The One after they both embraced living together for weeks during the lockdown.

Shirley told The Sun that after piling on the pounds in lockdown some of her clothes struggle to fit.

She added that she’s in the midst of losing the weight she’s gained to get back down to her ideal size, adding: ‘Mum said to me, ‘You’ve lost that five-pound bag of spuds off your ar*e — only three more bags to go’. No one wants to see my bits jiggling.’ 

Shirley also told the publication that while she continued to exercise during lockdown it was her poor eating habits that caused the weight gain.

She added: ‘I just ate everything. My neighbour would make a coffee cake and I would eat the whole thing.

‘I would sit and wait for the next meal. I would plan around the next meal. I would eat all day and night.’

But Shirley also said she’s now focused on reaching her goal weight of 120 pounds by following intermittent fasting diet, meaning she only eats from 12pm to 6pm each day.

Shirley also admitted that lockdown is the longest amount of time she’s spent with boyfriend Danny, who is usually travelling due to his job as an actor.

But she said that spending so much time with him has convinced her that he is The One, and credited him for helping to control her anxiety by filling the day with exercise and gardening.

Shirley will be reprising her role as a judge on the new series of Strictly Come Dancing, which is expected to be shorter due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

It’s been reported that the series will begin in October with fewer celebrities taking part, to ensure the programme adheres to social distancing by pre-recording certain elements.

Shirley went onto explain that the judges will have socially distance and it’s thought that this series may not include a live audience.

She also said she remains hopeful that Bruno Tonioli will be able to take part despite travel concerns around the COVID-19 pandemic, as she also hopes to fly to the US in September to celebrate her 60th birthday with her son Mark.

Love Island bosses are planning to host reunion specials after the summer series was cancelled amid the coronavirus pandemic, according to reports. 

It is thought that some of the show’s best-loved stars will meet face-to-face once again but will this time be based in the UK.   

A source told The Sun: ‘ITV were gutted about pulling the plug on Love Island. It’s one of their most popular shows and also a huge commercial success.

‘It just wasn’t feasible to go off to Mallorca and shoot at the villa, but this is a great way to get the show on air and give fans something to tide them over before it can return properly.

‘Hopefully, the best-remembered names will agree to take part as it would be brilliant to see how they get on a few years later after so much has gone on in their lives.

‘It could rekindle romantic feelings but it could also just start a load of old rows, especially as there have been a lot of messy break-ups and friendship changes.’

It is thought that those among the favourites to appear at the reunion will be Paige Turley, Dani Dyer, Amber Gill, Olivia Attwood, Kem Cetinay, Tommy Fury and Molly-Mae Hague.

MailOnline has contacted ITV for comment. 

It comes after ITV bosses pulled the plug on the summer series of the reality show having said it was a logistical impossibility to safeguard ‘the wellbeing of everyone involved’ amid the ongoing global coronavirus pandemic. 

Fans were assured the dating programme, which was due to begin filming in June, will be back ‘stronger than ever in 2021’.

Kevin Lygo, Director of Television at ITV, said at the time: ‘We have tried every which way to make Love Island this summer but logistically it’s just not possible to produce it in a way that safeguards the wellbeing of everyone involved and that for us is the priority.

‘In normal circumstances we would be preparing very soon to travel out to the location in Mallorca to get the villa ready but clearly that’s now out of the question.

‘We are very sorry for fans of the show but making it safely is our prime concern and Love Island will be back stronger than ever in 2021. In the meantime Love Island fans can still enjoy all six series of Love Island on BritBox.’

She tweeted: ‘Like with a lot of things because of restrictions with travel, social distancing and unable to plan ahead, Love Island is postponed until 2021. 

‘Great news is that there have been more applications then any other series! Next year is going to be BIG. Stay safe.’

It was claimed that ITV2 is struggling to get insurance to be filmed in Mallorca amid the outbreak.  

It was initially reported that bosses were considering asking its stars to isolate for two weeks before filming starts this summer, but without insurance production could be shut down completely.

A source told The Daily Star on Sunday: ‘Producers are looking at ways of making it work. 

‘The current plan is to fly crew and contestants out to Majorca two weeks before filming starts and then isolate everyone. But even with these measures, insurance companies won’t offer cover.

‘ITV can’t do the series without insurance. If the series is airing and even just one person tests positive for the virus, the whole thing would have to be shut down immediately.’ 

ITV boss Kevin Lygo had also hinted Love Island was going to be axed as it might send the wrong signal to viewers during a time of social distancing.  

Speaking during a virtual interview by the Edinburgh TV Festival, Kevin admitted they’re at a point when they have to decide whether to go ahead with Love Island this year.

He said: ‘We’re approaching the moment of is it feasible? Will Majorca open its doors?’

The channel boss added that they wouldn’t want to send the wrong signal to viewers when the country is asked to stay and home and keep at least two metres apart.

‘What signal might it be sending out if we’re doing a show where everyone is crammed together slavering over each other, and the rest of the world is told not to go near anyone in the park?’ he added. 

Kevin added that they did consider moving filming for this year’s series to the UK from its usual spot in Mallorca.

He went onto dismiss reports it could be filmed in Cornwall saying it ‘wouldn’t be the same.’ 

Kevin also said there would be a ‘big commercial impact’ if the series failed to go ahead.

It comes following reports much of this year’s cast will have missed on thousands of pounds in events and big-money deals as the country is ground to a halt during the lockdown.

Jack Cooper of EdHopkinsPR previously revealed to Metro that stars have missed key moneymaking moments which have previously bagged stars up to millions of pounds.

He said: ‘They are also missing out on club appearances due to them being closed, which could have earned them up to £5,000 per hour.

‘With no events to attend, they are also missing out on a huge range of exposure in the media, having no stories for the press to write about…

‘The Winter Love Island stars are set to lose huge amounts of money, some contestants up to £500,000. Brand deals at the moment are at an all-time low.  

‘Many of the participants have approached us to represent them during this tough time. Due to our books being full and also the lack of opportunities in the industry at this time, we have had to decline them.’

Love Island last aired on screens at the beginning of this year when ITV2 commissioned the show’s first ever winter series, filmed in South Africa.

Laura took over as host from her friend Caroline Flack, who tragically took her own life in February.

Shortly after the show came off air that month, the global coronavirus pandemic spread around the world, with Prime Minister Boris Johnson enforcing a lockdown on 23 March.

Despite these concerns, the number of applications for the summer series is anything to go by, fans are hoping the ITV2 dating show does return as potential islanders are at a record high.

According to The Sun, Love Island has received its highest number of applications yet and show bosses are hoping to snap up new reality stars by holding virtual auditions.

An insider told the paper that applications have surpassed 12,000, claiming: ‘Applications have gone through the roof since lockdown. Never before have so many people applied in this six-week time span.’

They continued: ‘Over seventy per cent of the applications have come from 18 to 28-year-olds and the videos being sent in have been more creative than ever as people have more time on their hands.’

The insider suggested that once the candidates for Love Island’s summer series have been shortlisted in the ‘coming weeks’, they’ll then be interviewed virtually by the team, with ITV having to bring in ‘extra staff’ to accommodate the high numbers.
