‘That’s what he was, a leading man. He exemplified professionalism. He exemplified the kind of artist one would hope to be. He was very serious about his work,’ Washington added.

When Boseman passed away in late August, he hadn’t made his colon cancer diagnosis in 2016 public.

Washington added that the Black Panther star, ‘kept his private life separate’ from his professional life, which, ‘added to his artistry.’

Michelle Keegan looked every inch the doting aunt as she cuddled her newborn nephew in an adorable Instagram snap.

The former Coronation Street star, 33, cosied up to her nephew Brody in the photo shared on Sunday, captioning the sweet image:  ‘B R O D Y A L L E N … you’re so loved.’

The snap comes shortly after her husband Mark Wright, also 33, shared his own snap with little Brody, who is the son of Michelle’s cousin Kate.

Actress Michelle looked content in the snap as she tenderly cradled baby Brody to her chest, while leaning her head close to his. 

The TV star looked radiant as she donned minimal make-up for the occasion, while opting to keep warm in a thick, beige jumper.

Her Instagram followers were quick to comment on the cute image, with former TOWIE star Chloe Lewis writing: ‘Suits you. He’s so beautiful.’ 

On Saturday, Mark shared his own picture with little Brody, with the presenter looking proud as he cradled his new nephew.

And the former TOWIE hunk clearly couldn’t get enough as he later posted another image of himself and the new baby.

He penned: ‘Another one (wont be the last) just because I cannot cope with this little man…. I must say, he took to uncle Mark like a duck takes to water !! Brody Allen welcome to the world little fella !! Another hammer to join the clan !!’

In June, Michelle revealed her ‘frustration’ at people constantly questioning why she and husband Mark Wright don’t have children, insisting ‘nobody knows what goes on behind closed doors’. 

The actress, who has been married to the TOWIE star turned TV presenter for five years, hit out at sexist double standards – admitting queries about when she is going to have a baby do ‘bother’ her now.

In an interview with the August issue of Cosmopolitan magazine, she said: ‘A few years ago it didn’t bother me and I answered the question, but now I think, “I don’t need to answer that because nobody knows what goes on behind closed doors”. 

‘I remember when I finished Our Girl people were like, “Is it because you’re going off to have a baby?”

‘I know for a fact if Mark finished a job, nobody would ask him if he was going to have a baby. It’s not fair. It does make me feel frustrated.’ 

Michelle previously told of her frustrations about the subject last year, telling  The Sun: ‘It’s horrible. It’s like, “You’re 32. Are you not yet?” People don’t know if we’re trying. They don’t know the background of what’s happening. 

‘It’s no one else’s business. In this day and age you shouldn’t ask questions like that.’

Michelle added that she has learned to brush off the question and said it is ‘no one else’s business.’

Michelle and husband Mark have been together since late 2012 when they met while they were both on holiday in Dubai. 

The former TOWIE star popped the question nine months later and the pair married in a lavish ceremony at Hengrave Hall in Suffolk in May 2015.

The couple previously had to conduct a long distance relationship while Michelle worked in South Africa for extended periods for BBC drama Our Girl, and Mark had filming commitments on EXTRA in Los Angeles.

Frustrating: 'People don¿t know if we¿re trying. They don¿t know the background of what¿s happening. 'It¿s no one else¿s business. In this day and age you shouldn¿t ask questions like that'

During their time away, the pair were constantly plagued by claims of martial strife, something which Michelle has now blasted as ‘ridiculous’.

She explained: ‘If you go away for work it’s seen as a negative and not a positive. I just don’t understand that and find it hard. 

‘You’re trying to carve yourself a career and people say you shouldn’t be doing it because it impacts your marriage. It’s ridiculous.’

Anthea showed off her chic fashion sense by opting for a stylish nude coat along with blue ripped jeans.

The former GMTV host displayed her flawless complexion by going makeup free for the outing.

Both Anthea and Mark had clearly indulged in some retail therapy, as they headed home laden with shopping bags.

Anthea and Mark were scheduled to tie the knot this month in Italy, but were forced to postpone their nuptials due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Anthea told HELLO!: ‘Mark and I had planned to go out and look at venues in March and then set a date for September.

‘Mark is from Italy, his family are from Milan, so it seemed the perfect place for us. 

‘It will be next year now. I am not even in any angst about it. When we do it, it will be small and cute, just with our close friends and family.’

The TV veteran was previously married to ex-husband Grant Bovey for 13 years, but the couple split after he cheated on her with a woman half her age in 2013.

Anthea’s first marriage was to her manager, former DJ Peter Powell, in 1990, with the couple splitting up eight years later.

On finally finding The One, the media personality gushed about her man of 13 months, who had planned a trip to Rome for her 60th birthday: ‘Mark is the absolute love of my life, we adore each other.

‘He makes me smile every day and we are excited about our life together. Sometimes, when you are a bit older and you have lived, something tells you this is so right, you just know. 

‘People might say why do you have to get married, or why would you want to. It is because I do believe in marriage, and I can’t think of a nicer person to be with for the rest of my life.

‘I’ve always said I would get married again, I knew I would meet someone, that I would not be on my own. I definitely never put up the shutters to finding love again, with ‘keep away’ tattooed on my forehead.’
