Foxtel switched off its Country Music Channel on Wednesday after 16 years for a new partnership with ViacomCBS.

But before the network ended, CMC’s programming director Tim Daley revealed in a heartbreaking post to Facebook, that he choose the three final songs that would play on repeat until it turned off.

‘We’re not sure exactly when CMC will switch off, so we couldn’t select a final song. We picked three which will repeat from Midnight,’ he wrote.

Australian songwriter Phil Barton also shared a photo with Tim and thanked him for all his work over the years.

‘I want to say a massive thank you to Tim Daley for all you have done for Australian Country Music and Country Music mate, you’ve been a real champion for our songs and artists and we appreciate it,’ he wrote.

‘Hate to see the last day of Country Music Channel but know we are truly grateful for the hard work and the way you’ve broken acts and song for the genre of country.’

Natalie told The Daily Telegraph at the time that she believed being chosen as a Guess girl had ‘a lot to do with her curvy body’.

‘One of the biggest compliments I got on set was the clothes fit me so well,’ she said.

‘…and that was not because I was really thin, but because I was curvy and had a full figure. That’s what being a Guess woman is all about.’

Jess will need to enjoy her downtime to its fullest before diving into wedding preparations for her nuptials to her businessman fiancé William Lee-Kemp in June 2021.

Only this month, the pair confirmed that they would be getting hitched in a beach ceremony in Majorca and plan to have 15 bridesmaids. 

Jess told Hello! magazine that her sister-in-law Michelle Keegan, 33, the actress wife of her brother Mark, would be one of bridal party, but she’s keeping quiet about the other 14.  

While the happy couple have holidayed in many exotic locations, Jess explained that Majorca has been like a second home to her as her family have a house on the island.  

Jess said: ‘I’ve been dreaming of a fairytale wedding since I was little, when I used to dress up in my mum’s net curtains.

‘Now I can’t wait for the moment I’ve been imagining for so long, walking up the aisle in a fabulous dress to marry Will.’

Of the location, she revealed: ‘We’ve enjoyed some amazing holidays here and I practically grew up on the island because it’s where my family has a second home.’
