As handsome lawyer Mark Darcy in the Bridget Jones films, Colin Firth became smitten with a pretty blonde television presenter with a rocky romantic history.

And the actor appeared to be following a similar script in real life when he was spotted enjoying a relaxed stroll with news presenter Joanna Gosling last week.

The star, who is known for playing aloof characters who gradually shed their reserve, seemed to have shrugged off his own recent romantic difficulties during a walk to savour the winter sunshine in a West London park.

The 60-year-old star and the BBC anchorwoman were seen happily chatting, smiling and laughing as they ambled through the grounds. Both were dressed down in hats, hooded jackets and jeans to ward off the cold.

Neither took the opportunity yesterday to deny that they are more than just good friends. Mr Firth’s publicist declined to comment and Ms Gosling failed to respond to requests to speak.

Regardless, the support of Ms Gosling in any capacity could not have come at a better time for Mr Firth. 

Next month will mark a year since he and ex-wife Livia Giuggioli, an Italian film producer, announced they were separating after 22 years of marriage.

Their announcement came four years after she had a secret fling during a temporary split in 2016. Her relationship was said to have left Mr Firth ‘heartbroken’.

Ms Gosling, 49, has experienced her own tumultuous love life. She was married to spin doctor Sir Craig Oliver – David Cameron’s former director of communications and leader of the official Remain campaign during the EU referendum – for 18 years before they split in 2014.

The couple have three daughters together who live with Ms Gosling, while Sir Craig, 51, has a bachelor flat nearby.

Before he moved to No 10, he was a BBC journalist which is where he is understood to have met Ms Gosling.

Sir Craig is reportedly now dating Lucy Thomas, deputy director of the Britain Stronger In campaign. They met during the EU referendum campaign.

Following the announcement of their split last December, Mr Firth and his estranged wife insisted they would ‘remain united’ in their love for their sons.

The actor remained at the family’s £4 million family home in Chiswick, West London, while Ms Giuggioli has spent much of the time since then back in Italy.

Their separation came after Ms Giuggioli, 50, admitted to an affair with her childhood friend Marco Brancaccia. 

The fling was revealed when she later took the now 56-year-old journalist to court in Italy, having accused him of stalking her after she got back together with her husband.

A statement issued on behalf of Mr Firth and his wife at the time said: ‘A few years ago Colin and Livia privately made the decision to separate. During that time, Livia briefly became involved with former friend Mr Brancaccia.

‘The Firths have since reunited. Subsequently, Mr Brancaccia carried out a frightening campaign of harassment over several months, much of which is documented.’ 

The journalist denied the claims, telling The Times: ‘We were romantically involved, she wanted to leave Colin for me.’

Mr Firth and Ms Giuggioli met on the set of the 1996 BBC drama Nostromo before tying the knot in Tuscany a year later. Ms Giuggioli is also co-founder of Eco-Age, a marketing company which focuses on the environment.

Mr Firth is known for his roles in Pride And Prejudice, Love Actually and The King’s Speech, for which he won the Best Actor Oscar in 2011.

He also has a son with Meg Tilly, his co-star in the film Valmont.

Instagram queen Tina Louise is no stranger to headlines. 

And on Tuesday, the 39-year-old tattooed bombshell puffed on a joint at home while she danced to Aretha Franklin’s ‘Respect’. 

Tina, who boasts 2.4 million Instagram followers, looked to be the life of the party as she puffed away and jived to the song which was playing on her record player.

The Australian-born beauty was dressed in a plunging singlet top and a pair of jeans while doing a number of suggestive dance moves. 

Tina later tagged Lowell Farms, which sells pre-rolled joints. It is legal to smoke marijuana in the US state of California. 

It has been an interesting few months for Tina, who was spotted getting cosy with rapper Diddy in October. 

Tina and Diddy, 50, put on a very romantic display as they passionately kissed one another while rolling around on the sand.

During their passionate beach make-out session, Diddy placed one hand on the small of Tina’s back as she lounged beside him.  

Tina looked incredible during the date, clad in one of her typically skimpy bikinis. 

The surprise romance came just a month after Tina called it quits with Brian Austin Green, 47, after they were first linked in June this year.

Megan, 34, has been married to Brian since 2010. 

They share three sons: Noah, eight, Bodhi, six, and Journey, four.

‘I’m not the type of person that has a break and, actually, having a baby is harder than working,’ she told The Sun.

‘So if I take some time off I’ll probably be more exhausted by a baby and desperate to get back to work for a rest.’

Paloma has plenty planned for 2021 alongside her baby,with filming for a third series of her hit TV series Pennyworth in the works, as well as a mammoth tour in September.   

In the meantime the star is keeping busy in the final months of her pregnancy by promoting her new album, and indulging her cravings of ‘gherkins and Marks & Spencer’s cheese tasters.’

‘Luckily they do a reduced- fat version because I’m getting through the packets,’ she admitted. Thankfully I’m a proud owner of a very regular delivery slot.’

‘I don’t have easy pregnancies, so it’s been emotional rollercoaster. If you look on the NHS website of things that could be irking you, I’ve got all of them!’ she explained.

The star admitted though that being a mum helps fuel her creative process, revealing that after she had her daughter four years ago, her work ethic changed. ‘

‘I became way more efficient and my output changed, you become more compartmentalised and you don’t become whimsically slow,’ she said. 

And Paloma has been busy throughout this pregnancy too, working on her new album Infinite Things during lockdown, with many tracks inspired by her family.

‘The actual title track Infinite Things was about motherhood and becoming a mother for the first time,’ she told Lorraine. ‘As much about heartache as about the most joyous thing you’ve experienced, I thought it was important to encapsulate that.’

Another track struck a chord with Paloma’s artist partner as she admitted he cries ‘every time I play it, not just the first time I played it. He can’t listen to it without crying.’

‘Quite often we hear sentimental love songs and we don’t connect to it. But this was so honest, in it I said ‘I chose you’… you cant get stuck in a rut in relationships and it’s like I’m with you out of choice, not out of necessity.’

Rebecca’s post comes after she revealed the embarrassing late-night injury that saw her rushed to the emergency department.

Speaking to Today co-host Richard Wilkins in August, the 43-year-old admitted to dislocating her toe in a silly accident.

Describing the injury as ‘one of the most painful things to ever do’, Rebecca said she was baffled by the mishap.

'It was probably the most commented on post ever!' After sharing the hack, Rebecca shared a video, and revealed her 'genius' idea had gone viral

‘I was walking down the hallway and just caught it on the corner of the door, and I’ve done it many times before,’ Rebecca said.

‘Usually I pull it back into [place], but this time I couldn’t get it back in.’

Unable to move her toe back to its normal position, Rebecca said her husband, Trent Miller, quickly bundled their two-year-old daughter up and headed to the hospital.

However, the emergency room took longer due to COVID-19 safety precautions.
