home and aways sam frost gets nominated for aacta award

Home and Away star Sam Frost has had a meteoric rise to fame since first appearing on Channel Ten’s The Bachelor back in 2014. 

And now the 31-year-old has taken a trip down memory lane after being nominated for an Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts Award. 

On Monday, Sam spoke of her journey to stardom, starting out as a naive 24-year-old who attempted to find love with Blake Garvey on the Channel 10 reality dating series.

Sam, who has also been up for a Logie, is being nominated for the AACTA Audience Choice Award for Favourite TV contestant of the Decade.   

‘I started this weird and wonderful journey in 2014 as a verrrry naïve 24 year old on the Bach [Bachelor Australia], took a huge hit mentally and emotionally,’ she said. 

Remember that? Sam appeared on Blake Garvey's season of The Bachelor in 2014, and was cruelly dumped by him for Louise Pillidge after he chose her as her leading lady

Sam went on to say she ‘hid for a year’ before re-emerging as Australia’s first Bachelorette – a role she turned down ’20 times’.    

‘[I] Hid away for a year, and came back as the first Aussie Bachelorette,’ she said. 

‘Which I turned down at least 20 times, before I felt like the universe gave me a massive shove in unexplainable ways to say yes.’ 

Sam went on to tout her other achievements on TV including, Hells Kitchen in 2017, her role as Jasmine Delaney on Home & Away and The All New Full Monty. 

‘I’m incredibly grateful for everyone who has been on the ride with me, supporting me and encouraging me through my career and personal highs and lows,’ she wrote.

When Sam debuted on Home and Away she was met with trolling: ‘Why is Sam Frost on Home and away?’ one fan asked on Twitter at the time.  

Another viewer tweeted: ‘Dear God I hope Sam Frost’s acting skills improve.’

‘Why is Sam Frost in Home and Away (and) why is she haunting me like this?’ asked an incredulous fan. 

Sam could be referring to her trying personal life as one of her ‘lows’, after she split from her ex-boyfriend Dave Bashford earlier this year.

The pair were together for three years.

‘Dave’s an amazing person and that’s never going to change,’ Sam told TV Week magazine this month. 

‘It wasn’t an ugly or messy break-up; it was just two people who love each other dearly as friends, and we promised to look after each other,’ she added.  

Sam went through two public splits before ending things with Dave.

The first was with Blake Garvey in 2014, and the second was with Sasha Mielczarek in 2016.

Unlike those break-ups, Sam said she didn’t care about any media backlash.

‘Dave is one of my best friends and for me, we will always support each other, so it was easy. We knew there was a lot of speculation,’ she said.  

On July 2, a representative for the actress released a statement saying: ‘Sam and Dave are no longer in a relationship. They remain great mates.’

Sam had hinted at a split several days earlier when she shared footage to TikTok of herself posing with her dogs and mocking the viral ‘couple challenge’.

Dave was nowhere to be seen, and Sam tellingly included the hashtag #31SingleAndFabulous.

In July 2017, Sam confirmed that she and Dave were dating.

An ongoing row with nemesis Amber Turner was brushed to one side on Friday as Nicole Bass showed off her stunning physique during a trip to Cyprus. 

The Only Way Is Essex star looked toned and trim in a tasteful lilac bikini as she relaxed in an infinity pool close to one of the island’s numerous beaches.

Revealing a set of nicely defined abs, Nicole, 28, was hard to miss while wading waist deep into the tranquil water.

With temperatures still high across the Mediterranean country, the TV personality shielded her eyes behind a pair of heavily tinted sunglasses. 

Sweeping her hair back across her head, Nicole inevitably stood out as she admired sweeping, uninterrupted views of the ocean. 

The brunette is enjoying a welcome break following a tense public showdown with co-star Amber that resulted in both women slinging personal insults at each other.

In scenes aired on The Only Way Is Essex, the pair bumped into each other  following an awkward exchange at a girls’ spa retreat and attempted to iron things out.

However things took a dramatic turn as Nicole told Amber she is ‘boring’ and insisted this is why her boyfriend Dan Edgar has previously been drawn to co-stars Chloe Sims and Clelia Theodorou.

Amber was quick to hit back at Nicole and Clelia, who was also present during the dramatic row, as she told them: ‘You two have no personality combined, a plank of wood is more exciting!’

Nicole later slammed Amber during a conversation with Clelia and Bobby Cole Norris, branding her ‘hands down one of the vilest, rudest, nastiest and b*******t people I have ever had a conversation with.

Later in the episode, she added: ‘I don’t hate Amber, I just think she can be nasty.’ 

The Only Way Is Essex continues on Sunday November 1st at 9:00pm on ITVBE.

good morning britain suffers hilarious gaffe as sangeeta kandola is stuck on mute

Good Morning Britain was the victim of another hilarious gaffe on Friday as London news reporter Sangeeta Kandolo got stuck on mute.

As the breakfast show cut to its usual round-up of the local news, the presenter could be seen pointing around the screen and saying she couldn’t hear anything before abruptly beginning her report.

Things went from bad to worse as ITV then cut to the local report, which led to the presenter being cut-off mid-sentence so they could return to the GMB studio.

As Ben Shephard and Kate Garraway cut to the local news, London viewers saw Sangeeta staring at the camera unsure of when to begin her report.

After several seconds of waiting she began pointing around her, hinting she was aware no one could hear her.

Despite this she began her report before the sound abruptly returned mid-flow.

But this wasn’t the end of the gaffe-filled segment as once the show cut to the weather, reporter James Wright was brutally cut off mid-sentence to return to the usual show.

As expected Ben and Kate were unawares of the blunders that came before and continued with the show as normal.

It comes after GMB’s weather presenter Laura Tobin burst into fits of giggles during a segment earlier this month. 

Laura was presenting a weather report but struggled to make her way through it after laughing at a joke made off air during an ad break.

She did her best to make it to the end of the weather update but was teased by co-stars Ben and Susanna Reid. 

Laura managed to explain in between her giggles that someone off camera had told a funny joke during the break. 

Trying to regain control, Laura admitted to viewers:‘I’m so sorry. This is so unprofessional. I’m sorry.’

Susanna could be heard chuckling in the background, and after the weather segment, she said: ‘Don’t worry, Laura. No one noticed’ before Ben joked: ‘We’ll get to the bottom of this.’

Good Morning Britain airs weekdays from 6am on ITV.

gmbs ben shephard apologies for not wearing a mask at petrol station as he discusses jeremy corbyn

Good Morning Britain’s Ben Shephard was forced to issue an apology, after forgetting to wear a mask while paying for petrol on Thursday.

Speaking on Friday’s broadcast of his show, the host, 45, made the confession while discussing the criticism Jeremy Corbyn received for wearing a mask under his nose. 

He said: ‘Now we all know that’s not how it’s supposed to be worn. But I was at a petrol station yesterday. I filled my car up, I was miles away, and when I walked into the petrol station I suddenly realised I didn’t have my mask on as I got to the desk.

‘I was so apologetic, I said, “I’m so sorry I’ve completely forgotten”. I pulled my jumper over my face and the person behind the screen and said don’t worry you can’t go running out without paying, that looks suspicious.

‘It just makes you realise that with that focus on you can suddenly make a mistake about wearing masks. They were very understanding, I was very apologetic.’

GMB’s resident medic Dr. Hilary Jones, 67, also admitted to having a slip of his own as he entered a pharmacy.

He recalled: ‘I was in a hurry charging around, I went in for an emergency prescription for one of my patients.

‘I suddenly realised after 20 seconds, “Oh my goodness I’ve forgotten my mask”. I said to the chemist, “I do apologise, I should have my mask on”. I should know, but it’s so easy to do.’

Beleaguered former Labour leader Corbyn, who on Thursday was suspended from the party amid the ongoing row over antisemitism was criticised for not wearing his mask properly as the UK buckles under a second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Meanwhile, GMB’s Alex Beresford revealed on Wednesday that he had pulled out of presenting the ITV show for the rest of the week after ‘falling unwell with a cold’.

The broadcaster, 40, told fans he’d decided to stay at home after becoming ill due to increased concerns surrounding the novel coronavirus pandemic.

Alex – who had been scheduled to host This Morning with Charlotte Hawkins on Thursday and Friday – was replaced by Ben Shephard, as the regular presenting team takes a break for the half-term.

Alex tweeted on Wednesday: ‘BREAKING: Due to having a cold and feeling unwell I won’t be hosting @gmb tomorrow or Friday. 

‘In normal circumstances I’d power through, however with things getting worse we don’t need anymore germs flying around the studio. Sorry to cut short your half term break @benshephard.’

Just hours earlier, the weather presenter had revealed he’d be back behind the GMB desk for the rest of the week alongside regular host Charlotte.

He wrote: ‘Back hosting @gmb for the rest of this week with @CharlotteHawkns although I’ve lucked out and will be strolling on set at 6:30am.

‘This is classed as a lie in in breakfast TV. Headlines at 6am with Charlotte x.’

So far this week, viewers have seen Adil Ray and Ranvir Singh present GMB while Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid take their usual break during half-term.

Last week, he also left his followers swooning as he celebrated his 40th birthday with a shirtless snap.

Captioning the image, Alex told how he was ‘thankful’ to reach his 40th year as ‘no one is promised tomorrow’.

He penned: ‘Whooooooaaaah where did the last 40 years go. I am so thankful that I got to this milestone because no one is promised tomorrow. 

‘I can’t lie I feel great inside and I’m oddly excited about what’s to come. I say oddly because when I hit 30 I thought I was old. Today I woke up at 4:30am like a true old man and I can’t wait for my afternoon nap #forty #blessed.’

Wow! Last week, he left a number of his followers swooning as he celebrated his 40th birthday with a shirtless snap
