jodie turner smith details motherhood during the pandemic six months after welcoming daughter

She became a wife and mother in the space of the last year.

And Jodie Turner-Smith is opening up about the experience of mothering her five-month-old daughter, whom she shares with her Fringe actor husband Joshua Jackson.

In the October issue of Vogue, the British model and actress, 34, confirms her child’s name as Janie for the first time in print, and reflects on what it’s been like to parent a newborn in the midst of the pandemic.

‘I had to learn how to breastfeed and how to be a mum—it really worked out for my baby,’ Turner-­Smith said of the past few months during lockdown with her baby and husband, 42. 

The article reports that after giving birth in April, Jodie’s mother Hilda came to stay with them for three months amid the pandemic, and while protests began erupting around the world in the fight of social justice and racial equality. 

The Queen & Slim star reflected that it was a ‘comfort’ to have both her mother and husband with her and the baby during that time, without the outside pressures of work and amid a time of change and upheaval.

‘It doesn’t make sense that we still have to be screaming to the world that our lives matter. It doesn’t make sense that Black people are being senselessly mowed down by the police,’ Jodie said, expressing her feelings on the Black Lives Matter movement. 

‘It doesn’t make sense, this country’s response to the global pandemic,’ she went on. ‘It doesn’t make sense that so many people are unemployed, and the government is bailing out corporations. 

‘But what did make sense, inside of that, was the love of my family,’ she concluded.

The model, who is the new face of Gucci’s fragrance Bloom, also talked about some of the lessons she hopes to one day pass down to her daughter.

In particular, Jodie says she hopes to impart to Janie that true beauty isn’t only skin deep. 

‘That self-­assuredness is what is going to help her navigate life,’ she shared. ‘It’s important to impart to my daughter what is beautiful about her, and about who she comes from and where she comes from, and what is powerful about that.’

im a celebrity 2020 eastenders shane richie becomes the latest star to sign up for new series

Shane Richie has reportedly become the latest star to sign up for the new series of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

According to The Sun, the EastEnders actor, 56, has agreed to take part in the upcoming series and will now go into isolation for two weeks before it starts next month. 

An insider told the publication Shane decided this year would be perfect to take part as he has less work responsibilities due to Covid-19 and the show is taking place closer to home in North Wales.

A source said: ‘ITV have always wanted Shane for the jungle but with panto not happening this year and other work opportunities less likely, he decided this was the time to take the plunge. 

‘Going to North Wales is less of a huge commitment than flying halfway across the world, too, so he jumped at the chance. 

‘He’s already being talked about by production as an early favourite as he’s such a likeable bloke and known to millions of soap fans.’

The insider added that ITV are ‘delighted’ they’ve got the TV favourite to take part in the series.

Shane is best known for his role as Alfie Moon on the BBC soap where he starred alongside Jessie Wallace, who played his wife Kat Slater.

Shane could be set to go far on I’m A Celebrity if the past performances of his EastEnders co-stars are anything to go by with Charlie Brooks, Joe Swash and Jacqueline Jossa all winning in years past. 

MailOnline has contacted representatives for ITV and Shane Richie for comment. 

It comes after Sir Mo Farah has reportedly negotiated a huge fee for his first reality TV appearance on I’m A Celebrity, with a new report suggests he’s being paid a whopping £300k fee.

The huge pay packet would make the athlete the highest paid celeb on the 2020 series, according to The Sun, with ITV bosses said to be splashing out a huge £1million to secure top talent. 

‘The ITV executives were desperate to bag Mo and will have spent big to get their man,’ an insider said.

‘It’s a massive coup for producers to get Mo for the series. Everyone’s really excited about the signing and think he’ll be a hit with viewers.

‘It’s the first time he’s agreed to do anything like this, so it’ll be a massive draw for sports fans.’

Vernon Kay meanwhile is rumoured to be earning a £150k fee for the series while Coronation Street legend Bev Callard is on £125k.

A source told The Sun: ‘Mo’s been a big fan of the show for years and was just waiting for the right time in his career to do it.

‘He obviously has an excellent level of fitness and mental focus so will be great at the Bushtucker Trials and will be a positive addition for keeping up team morale for campmates – especially as a lot of the celebs are worried how cold it will be.’

The insider went on to say that the athlete will no doubt be ‘nervous’ about his stint as it’ll be his first time doing reality TV and will be away from his family.

Back in February, Lara and David confirmed their engagement at the Gymkhana VIP dinner in Mayfair, where the Vogue cover star arrived brandishing a dazzling diamond ring on her wedding finger. 

Despite men falling at her feet, Lara met 37-year-old Grievson on the popular dating app, Tinder. They have been in a relationship since 2018.

He became her first serious boyfriend after her split from Walliams, 48, the father of her six-year-old son, Alfie.

She and Walliams started dating in 2009 and announced their engagement just four months later.

At their wedding at Claridge’s in London, guests included Walliams’ Little Britain co-star Matt Lucas, Denise Van Outen, Richard and Judy, Sir Elton John, Stephen Fry and Tom Ford. 

She admitted that she was never comfortable with the level of fame brought by being romantically involved with Walliams, who is a best-selling children’s author as well as being a judge on Britain’s Got Talent.

She recalled one night: ‘I’d been at his house and was walking back to the Tube and this car was driving next to me and they were taking pictures the whole time.

‘It was just so bewildering and terrifying.’

tim curry returning to spotlight in rocky horror picture show livestream for democrat fundraiser

Tim Curry will star this Halloween in a livestream of The Rocky Horror Picture Show which made him a star in the 1970s.

The 74-year-old largely retreated from public life after suffering a stroke in 2012 and has mostly stuck to voice acting since.

However he will be appearing onscreen in the livestream which is a fundraiser hosted by the Wisconsin Democrats, according to their website.

The Saturday night fundraiser is a plug for the Joe Biden campaign as the website states: ‘All paths to the White House go through Wisconsin.’ 

Tim starred as the villainous ‘sweet transvestite’ Dr. Frank N Furter in the original London cast of The Rocky Horror Show in 1973.

He became a star when he reprised his role in the 1975 film adaptation The Rocky Horror Picture Show starring Susan Sarandon.

Two of his co-stars in the film Nell Campbell and Barry Bostwick are going to be joining Tim in the livestream event this Halloween.

Nell was also part of the original London cast with Tim at the Royal Court Upstairs where her billing was as ‘Little Nell.’ 

Several names who were not in the original Rocky Horror Picture Show will also feature in Saturday’s livestream including Jason George and Lance Bass.

Death Proof star Rosario Dawson, whose boyfriend Cory Booker ran against Joe Biden in the Democratic primary, will also be seen in the stream.

Colleen Ballinger of Miranda Sings fame joins Jason Alexander, Seth Green, Wilmer Valderrama and David Arquette in the cast.

The evening will also have musical performances from such acts as Frankie Grande, the Dresden Dolls, Miss Peppermint and Rumer Willis.

Fall Out Boy are performing and so is Crazy Ex-Girlfriend impresaria Rachel Bloom along with Pearl Jam lead guitarist Mike McCready and others.

Tim’s last live-action movie was Burke & Hare, a 2010 dark comedy starring Simon Pegg and Andy Serkis as the real-life Scottish serial killer team from the 19th century.

The following year he pulled out of a UK revival of Tom Stoppard’s play Rosencrantz And Guildenstern Are Dead for health reasons.

Back at it: Since the stroke he has acted almost entirely in voice-over - except for a cameo in Fox' televised production of The Rocky Horror Show in 2016

His last theatrical performance was a four-day run in Eric Idle’s play What About Dick? in Los Angeles – just three months before his stroke in July 2012.

Since the stroke he has acted almost entirely in voice-over – except for a cameo in Fox’ televised production of The Rocky Horror Show in 2016.

Tim played the Narrator/Criminologist while his iconic Frank N Furter role went to trans actress Laverne Cox of Orange Is The New Black fame.
