He’s fighting to clear his name after being accused of hiding assets during his bankruptcy proceedings.

But Boris Becker appeared to shrug off his money worries as he showed up for a day of fun at an outdoor adventure course driving a new Mercedes C-class.

The former tennis ace, 52, was spotted arriving at Go Ape in London in the vehicle – which costs around £40,000 – for an afternoon out with girlfriend Lilian de Carvalho Monteiro. 

Despite currently standing trial at Southwark Crown Court, accused of failing to declare assets during his insolvency proceedings, Becker seemed in good spirits as he watched his other half get active.

The German sportsman, who is thought to live in a £5million penthouse by the Thames, looked on as Miss de Carvalho Monteiro put on a harness and flew down a zip wire as part of the adventure course.

Looking casual in blue jeans, a grey zip-up hoodie and a baseball cap, Becker took photos and videos of his other half, who was wearing black gym gear, but didn’t get involved himself.

The pair, who were first pictured together earlier this year, held hands as they walked back through the park and jumped back into Becker’s car.

A new Mercedes C-class C220d starts at £36,855 but some versions of the model cost up to £46,000. Additions can be made to the car – including technology to assist the driver and upgraded upholstery and tyres – which can push up the price by thousands.

Becker used to be a brand ambassador for Mercedes-Benz, but is thought to have parted ways with the car maker in 2014.

Last year he was given a six-month ban after he was caught speeding twice in four months.

In July Becker and Miss de Carvalho Monteiro, a political risk analyst thought to be in her early 30s, enjoyed a holiday in Ibiza with friends including fellow tennis champion Bjorn Borg.

Becker moved out of his Wimbledon home following his acrimonious 2018 split from model Lilly Becker, 43, after nine years of marriage. He is now thought to live in a penthouse overlooking the Thames at Battersea.

He has said he is determined to clear his name after being accused of failing to disclose financial information and assets including Olympic gold medals during his bankruptcy proceedings. He has denied the charges.

melanie sykes flouts lockdown by parading around london four days after visiting italian toyboy

Melanie Sykes has seemingly flouted strict COVID-19 rules by flying to Italy to see her toyboy lover and not quarantining on her return to London.

Melanie, 50, was snapped in Venice visiting gondolier Riccardo Simionato, 23, pictured fawning all over him in very public displays of affection.

She was seen with the Italian on November 21, before flying home to the UK and parading around London on November 24.

Melanie shared photos of herself at The May Fair Hotel, inside on a bed, and strutting around on the street.

The presenter claimed to be filming at the posh venue, crediting her make-up artist and clothing brand Reiss for her look.

She later posted some evening snaps of her views across Venice from the week before, captioning these: ‘Hello everyone, been busy all day but just wanted to say good evening and share some beautiful pics of Venice from a week ago.

‘These shots were taken on the roof of the T Fondaco Dei Tedeschi!’

One shrewd follower replied to her in the comments, asking: ‘If you were there a week ago, how come you’re not self isolating?’

According to the government’s protocols, this is against the rules – and Melanie is eligible for a £1000 fine.

It is understood she was filming for ITN at the hotel. MailOnline has approached her rep – as well as ITN and the May Fair – for comment. 

With England in its last week of a second lockdown, only essential travel is permitted, and citizens are being told to stay at home.

Those that must travel = including British nationals – then have to self-isolate for a strict 14-day period.

Exceptions are only made for those traveling from the Common Travel Area – Republic of Ireland, Channel Islands, or the Isle of Man – or countries in travel corridors with the UK.

Italy was removed from travel corridor list on October 18 – and this status remains.

Those in quarantine are not permitted to use taxis or public transport, go to work or use public areas, host visitors at their homes [unless for essential support] or go out to buy supplies unless crucial.

In a comment provided to The Sun, Tory MP Andrew Bridgen said: ‘It’s a blatant disregard of the rules and a complete lack of respect for other people’s wellbeing.’

With COVID-19 expert Dr Bharat Pankhania adding: ‘Northern Italy has been hit severely and that’s why we have these rules.’ 

According to the Department For Transport, the only travelers who are exempt from restrictions are those who must travel for work once a week and hold a season ticket. It is presumed that Melanie does not.

COVID-19: Self-isolation rules when travelling to the UK

When you arrive in the UK, you must travel directly to the place you are staying and not leave until 14 days have passed since you were last in a non-exempt country, territory or island. This is known as ‘self-isolating’.

The 14-day period starts is counted from the day after you leave a non-exempt country, or territory or island. A non-exempt country, or territory or island is any country, or territory or island that is not on the travel corridors list.

This is because it can take up to 14 days for coronavirus symptoms to appear. If you’re travelling to the UK for less than 14 days, you will be expected to self-isolate for the length of your stay, but you can travel directly to your place of departure.

You may not have to self-isolate for 14 days if you arrive from a country, territory or island on the travel corridors list. You should check the list before you travel.

You will need to self-isolate if you have visited or made a transit stop in a country, territory or island that is not on the travel corridors list within the 14 days before you arrive in the UK. The period of time you will need to self-isolate will depend on when you visited or made a transit stop in a non-exempt country, territory or island.

Before you travel to the UK from anywhere outside the Common Travel Area, you must provide your journey, contact details and the address where you will self-isolate. You will be able to complete the public health passenger locator form 48 hours before you arrive. You may be required to present these details on your arrival in England.

You may be refused permission to enter the UK (if you are not a British citizen), or fined if you do not to provide your contact details or do not self-isolate when required to do so.

In England, if you do not self-isolate, you can receive a fixed penalty notice of £1,000 for a first offence, increasing to £2,000 for any second offence. Further repeat offences will attract penalties of £4,000 and then £10,000 for each repeat offence.

If you do not provide an accurate passenger locator form – or do not update your passenger locator form in the limited circumstances permitted where you need to move from the accommodation where you’re self-isolating to another place to continue self-isolating – you can be fined up to £3,200.

gladys berejiklian is shocked to hear cardi b and megan thee stallions controversial hit wap

Things got a little out of hand when New South Wales Premier Gladys Berejiklian appeared on The Kyle and Jackie O Show on Thursday.

Gladys, 50, was shocked to hear Cardi B’s sexually charged hit WAP ft. Megan Thee Stallion for the first time live on air – and even watched in horror as a KIIS FM staffer performed the song’s signature twerking dance in front of her. 

At one point, the politician scolded host Kyle Sandilands when he read aloud some of the lyrics – which were censored so they could be played on air.

‘Oh please, can we just move on? I’m the Premier, for heaven’s sake,’ a frustrated Gladys said, after Kyle recited the lyrics.

Despite being pushed out of her comfort zone, she could be heard stifling a shocked laugh as the radio producer attempted the WAP dance. 

‘That’s a hardcore song,’ co-host Jackie ‘O’ Henderson remarked, to which Kyle replied: ‘But all the kids love it… we have to play the clean version.’

Before being exposed to the song, Gladys admitted she hadn’t heard of WAP. 

‘I don’t know what it is? Does it have any swear words in it? All your staff are laughing, what are you doing?’ she said, giggling nervously.

However, WAP has received its fair share of criticism for its explicit subject matter.

But Cardi B hit back at her critics, telling The Kyle and Jackie O Show at the time that the lyrics were in fact ‘normal’ by hip hop standards.

‘The people that the song bothers are usually like conservatives or really religious, fake religious people,’ she said. 

‘I grew up listening to this type of music, so to other people it might be strange and vulgar, but to me it’s almost like really normal.’

She also clarified that WAP was meant for adults, and shouldn’t be heard by children.

‘We love making Gumbo together and also brownies for dessert,’ Snoop said.

In 2009, the Drop It Like It’s Hot hit-maker couldn’t help but make several allusions to one of his favorite things as Martha coached him on making the chocolatey dessert on her TV show.  

‘When do we add the, ummm…?’ Snoop cheekily asked, as Martha hilariously quipped back at the time: ‘Later, that’s a secret.’  

With the global pandemic making it difficult to catch up with Martha, Snoop said he hasn’t seen her ‘in person’, but added: ‘we have done a couple of video chats.’

Snoop’s career got off to a late start, but his status escalated just as quickly as his album sales. These days, he’s seen as a mentor to up-and-coming talent.

‘I always tell people to be themselves. Don’t put on airs for attention,’ he said of the advice he imparts on those trying to break through in a crowded rap game.
