Gianna’s father George Floyd was killed on May 25 after he was apprehended for fitting the description of a forgery suspect.

Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was seen on video pinning his knee into the back of Floyd’s neck for eight minutes and 46 seconds, leading to his death.

Chauvin was fired and originally charged with third-degree murder, but after protests broke out around the world, the charges were ultimately elevated to second-degree murder, with the other three officers on the scene also charged.

fern britton says its easier to forgive your enemies in cryptic tweet

Fern Britton has suggested that it is ‘easier to forgive your enemies than your friends’ in a new cryptic post.

The former This Morning host, 62, posted the ‘thought for the day’ on Twitter on Saturday, eight months after announcing her split from husband Paul Vickery.

The short message also comes just three days after she shared another post about ‘being used’ and ‘betrayed’ on the social media site.

On Saturday Fern tweeted: ‘Thought for the day: it’s easier to forgive your enemies than it is to forgive your friends.’

Her message soon gained more than 800 likes, with many people commenting that forgiveness takes time and can effect trust.  

Fern confirmed that she had split from her chef husband of 20 years Paul, 59, who she met while she was presenting This Morning, back in January.  

Her fans also rallied on Wednesday when she  retweeted a cryptic social media post about ‘betrayal, falling out and being used’ and said the words ‘fit so perfectly.’

It read: ‘In life, you will fall out with people that you never thought you would. Get betrayed by people that you trusted with all your heart. 

‘And get used by people you would do anything for. But life also has a beautiful side to it.  

‘You will get loved by someone you never thought you would have. Form friendships with people that will establish more meaningful and stronger relationships. And overcome things you never thought you would get over.

‘We all have chapters that end with people at some point in life. But take pride in knowing that the very best part of your book is being written.’

Back in June, Fern spoke about her marriage to Phil breaking down on ITV’s Lorraine, saying: ‘Unfortunately, we fell apart!’ 

The TV personality explained that she was trying to finish her book while everything in her personal life was going on, and confessed that she ‘needed the rest’ which was forced on her by lockdown.  

Fern explained: ‘Unfortunately, Phil and I fell apart. And I had this book to write this book and get it out on the deadline. 

‘And once all that was done, lockdown happened and it’s like three months of – I needed that rest, you know?’ 

Fern and Phil share daughter Winnie, 18, whilst the Ready Steady Cook presenter also has twins Harry and Jack, 26, and Grace, 23, with former husband Clive Jones.

Fern spoke about learning to be single during the coronavirus lockdown.  

She said: ‘We separated at the beginning of the year and fortunately it’s all smooth. We just came to the end of the road, you know, which is sad. 

‘So, I’ve been adjusting to life as just me to think about, and my two daughters happen to be here because they got stuck in lockdown, happily for me.

‘It’s a time for me to really adjust my existence, which on the one hand is really quite exciting, but you’ve also got to process it for a while.’  

The TV host also reflected on their former relationship in an interview with Weekend Magazine: ‘We had a wonderful time. We were the best of friends. And I miss that friendship.’ 

‘There comes a point when the children are substantially off your hands and you look at each other and wonder where you’re going to go from here.’ 

‘I don’t want anyone. I can do it by myself. I don’t feel lonely. I like my own company. I realised not long ago that I was married, on and off, for 33 years.’   

On Twitter in January, both Fern and Phil wrote matching statements which read: ‘After more than 20 happy years together, [we] have decided to go our separate ways. We will always share a great friendship and our lovely children.

‘We would appreciate it if our privacy is respected at this time. Thank you for your continued kindness and support. [sic]’

The couple tied the knot 20 years ago in 2000, after Fern had split from former husband Clive Jones in the same year following a 12-year marriage.  

The couple met on This Morning when Fern hosted the show alongside Philip Schofield – who now hosts with Holly Willoughby – and the star previously said she never thought she would find love again as a mother of three children.

Coronation Street’s Beverley Callard ‘determined to still take part in I’m A Celebrity and WIN’

coronation streets beverley callard determined to still take part in im a celebrity and win

Beverley Callard, who is rumoured to be starring in I’m A Celebrity, has reportedly vowed to appear on the show – despite being in terrible pain from botched surgery. 

The Coronation Street icon, 63, is said to have been telling friends she is still keen to take part and will not let the agonising pain from her recent hip operation get in the way.

Such is her level of commitment to recover in time, that some friends are now predicting she is set to win.

A source close to the actress told the The Mirror: ‘There is still a long way to go before the show starts and Bev is determined to use this time to keep getting better. She is nothing if not a fighter.

‘I’m a Celebrity may have switched from New South Wales to cold north Wales but she still hopes to be there. 

‘It’s been a great target for her as she continues with physio, working hard to get fit for the show in a couple of months is really helping to spur her on. She’s so focused, some of her friends are convinced that she will go all the way and win.’

If Beverley were to form part of the line-up or even go on to win, it would represent an incredible achievement after a very difficult year.     

Beverley’s nightmare began when she visited her GP in March to seek advice on a ‘niggle in my hip, in my groin on the right side’.

Her doctor said it could easily be fixed with a small operation, however, the star faced a series of complications following the surgery.

Beverley explained following what she thought was a ‘minor operation’ at the hospital, which she is not naming for legal reasons, she was told the surgery didn’t go as planned.

She explained to the publication that her hip had ‘crumbled’ during surgery and she needed ‘further operations’. 

Appearing on Loose Women earlier in September, Beverley said: ‘It’s been a pretty difficult time. I’m trying to walk now. I’m on crutches as opposed to being hoisted around and pushed around, but I’m getting there slowly but surely.’ 

‘It’s been one of the worst times I’ve gone through. But I’m battling, I’m fighting. I’ve got physio every day, hydrotherapy twice a week – I’m trying my best.’

Beverley is mum to Rebecca, 45, and Joshua, 31, while her husband of 10 years Jon McEwan has Ben, 34, Jon, 31, and Danielle, 29. 

Corrie fans were initially left baffled as Liz suddenly left Weatherfield off-screen, with it revealed that she had moved to Spain. But Beverley revealed on the same Loose Women appearance that she will be heading back for a full exit scene. 

She said: ‘I will go back maybe the beginning of next year. So they will see a bit more of Liz and it’s going to be very dramatic I believe!

‘I wasn’t going to talk about the operation at all, but I know there was a bit of an uproar, because after 35 years they’re just sending her off to Spain and we’re not going to see her.

‘So it wasn’t Coronation Street’s fault, it was no one’s fault, it was just one of those things. What I’m hoping for the exit is Liz and Jim get back together and just go off into the sunset, but I have a feeling that might not happen.’

Her outing comes after last week she revealed she has got engaged to her boyfriend Simon Motson. 

She admitted she was shocked when her partner, 45, popped the question last month on the fifth anniversary of their first date.

Speaking to Hello! magazine, Myleene told how Simon got down on one knee in their garden shed which he made into a replica of where they had their first date and surprised her with a nine-carat diamond ring.

She said: ‘We’re engaged! I was absolutely blown away. He even replicated the dinner we had – burger and fries, followed by cherry pie.

‘When he got down on one knee and started fumbling around under the table, I thought he was joking. Then I thought: “Oh my God, he’s for real.” I was completely speechless.’

Simon added: ‘It’s quite a blur but I think I said something along the lines of: ‘Myleene Angela Klass, will you marry me?’ And I had to say it again… and I think I said it a third time. Finally she said yes and we were both in tears.’
