vin diesel thanks late fast and furious costar paul walker as part of his inspiration to make music

They starred together in multiple installments of one of the top-grossing movie franchises in the world, and nurtured a deep friendship along the way.

On Friday, movie star Vin Diesel released his second-ever single, titled ‘Days Are Gone’ and mentioned his fallen Fast And Furious costar Paul Walker as one of his inspirations for pursuing music.

The Pitch Black star, 53, spoke to People about his unexpected transition from movies to music, and why he chose the genre of house tropical.

‘Something about 2020 led me to this tropical house, feel good-style of music,’ the XXX star said.

Days Are Gone is Diesel’s second track, after last month’s Feel Like I Do, which he premiered on The Kelly Clarkson Show last month. 

‘Feel Like I Do, at its core, is a positive message, and Days Are Gone is a song that I think everybody can identify with in some way. It reminisces about life when it was a little bit more carefree than it is today.’ 

As for Paul: Vin said Walker, who tragically died at age 40 in 2013 in a car accident, was among those who encouraged him to keep singing; seen in 2011's Fast Five

As for Paul, who tragically died at age 40 in 2013 in a car accident, Vin said he was among those who encouraged him to keep singing.

‘Bless my brother’s soul,’ Diesel said. 

‘I remember in London when I told Pablo [Vin’s nickname for Paul] that all these people were concerned that I was singing, he was the one who said, “Don’t ever stop singing, you know you have something special,”‘ he reminisced.

Tropical house track: Days Are Gone is Diesel's second track, after last month's Feel Like I Do, which he premiered on The Kelly Clarkson Show last month

Vin also spoke about how, if it weren’t for the strange circumstances of 2020 and the coronavirus lockdown, he might not have been able to fully explore his musical side on a professional level.

‘When all productions were shut down, I was supported to go and explore my musical passion,’ he said.

Normally, Vin is part of at least three huge movie franchises – in addition to the behemoth Fast And Furious franchise, he also voices Groot in Marvel’s Guardians Of The Galaxy, and has a part in James Cameron’s new Avatar sequel.

Busy Diesel: Vin also spoke about how, if it weren't for the coronavirus lockdown this year, he might not have been able to fully explore his musical side; seen in January

Had the pandemic not happened, Diesel would have been heavily engaged in press tours for F9 and Avatar 2, not to mention his slew of other film projects.

‘It sounds weird but had this year not been the way that it’s been, I might never have been able to do this,’ he said. 

‘I would have been right on another set and touring around the world. I’m myopic that way. When I’m making a movie, I can’t think about anything but that movie. So I really might not have ever had the opportunity had I not been like everyone else quarantined.’

im a celebrity fans call for itv to bring the show back to gwrych castle

It took place in Wales for the first time in the show’s 20-year history after it was forced to relocate amid the COVID-19 pandemic. 

And now I’m A Celebrity fans have called for the show to move to Gwrych Castle, Abergele, in northern Wales permanently. 

On Friday night, 12 million votes were cast with Giovanna Fletcher, 35, being crowned champion- with the final drawing in one million more than last year.

The show usually takes place in the Australian bush, with celebrities camping in the jungle. 

However due to travel restrictions during the pandemic, this has not been possible this year.  

Fans have suggested the show should move to the Welsh castle permanently, or alternate years between Wales and Australia.

One fan said: ‘I think #ImACelebrity should stay in the castle because what a bloomin series it has been and one of the best parts, no splitting them up and sending them to different camps. It was the revamp no one knew we needed, but we did! Loved it so so much’ 

Another wrote: ‘I honestly think this years @imacelebrity has been the best in years!!! Actually enjoyed it being in the Castle rather than the Jungle! Wish they would return to the castle for another series!!! #I’mACelebrity’ 

A third commented: ‘Can we have #imacelebrity back in the castle next year please @antanddec, this has been the best and funniest series by far’

A viewer said: ‘IT IS THE BEST!!! This has been my favourite series of #ImACelebrity EVER! It should be at this castle every year!!! Wonderful!!!’ 

Other fans thought it would be better if the series alternated between being in the jungle in Australia and being at the castle.

Votes: 12 million votes were cast during this year's live finale, one million more than last year when soap actress Jacqueline Jossa (pictured) was crowned Queen of the Jungle

One wrote: ‘Do think this series in the castle has been really good but I’d prefer it to go back to the jungle, or at least do alternate years from the jungle to the castle, the permanent move could ruin it #imacelebrity #imaceleb’

Another added: ‘I really enjoyed this series, I loved the castle and I hope they do it again. Maybe alternate years. A sense of normality and something to look forward to at the end of the day after a very difficult year. Thank you @imacelebrity #ImACelebrity #ImACeleb #ImACelebFinal’ 

A third commented: ‘Well I think that’s been the best series of #ImACelebrity ever. The castle gave it an air of something magical. I hope the powers that be consider making it a regular thing, perhaps alternate between Aus and Wales @antanddec @ITV’

It comes as a source told The Sun: ‘The show has been warmly received by a lot of people. Its viewing figures broke records as curious fans tuned in to see how different it looked, and millions stayed.

‘They only had ten weeks to prepare for life in Wales and they’ve pulled it off brilliantly. This shows it could be filmed anywhere but, if the world is open for business as usual next year, they would prefer it to be Oz.

 ‘So bosses are looking at the feasibility of it staying put for now. Australia is brilliant, and where the show belongs.’

MailOnline has contacted ITV for comment.  

Giovanna was named Queen of the Castle during I’m A Celeb’s live finale. 

The author went up against Vernon Kay and Jordan North to win the title, and was left in complete shock after it was revealed she’d come out on top after 12 million votes had been cast. 

Gushing about her win, she sat on a plush throne and said: ‘I cant believe it, people have picked up their phones and voted. I’m just blown away I cant believe it its been the most amazing experience, ask me in a week!’

Ever gracious in defeat, Jordan said it was: ‘Absolutely fantastic, I couldn’t be runner up to anyone better,the most genuine kindest person I’ve ever met.

Vernon stepped up to crown Giovanna, saying it was his honour to name her the first ever Queen of the Castle as 2019 winner Jacqueline Jossa was unable to attend the ceremony as is usually tradition.

After it was revealed he had come in third, Vernon hugged his competitors and said: ‘Well done you two, I’ve had the best time, you’ve been awesome.’

She recently announced she will join Ex In The City to look for love. 

And Amy Hart turned heads as arrived at the Turbine Theatre in Battersea, London, to watch Cinderella: The Socially Distanced Ball on Friday. 

The Love Island star, 27, stunned in a tiny black and silver printed mini dress which came complete with long netted sleeves.

The blonde beauty protected herself from the winter chill by draping a black cape with a fur collar over her shoulders. 

Amy paired the ensemble with sheer black tights and patent black heeled boots.  She accessorised with a black sequin bag and had her nails long, pointed and white. 

The stunner left her blonde locks loose around her shoulders and opted for glam make-up.

Earlier this week, Amy revealed she accidentally knocked down her garden wall after crashing her car while arriving back at her family home in Sussex. 

The reality star took to her Instagram Stories where she shared a snap of a crumbling wall and her scratched red car following the incident. 

Amy wrote; ‘Didn’t get enough swing on the driveway did I.’

While she added: ‘Car! It’s only scratches we think so just a repaint thank god!’

She later admitted her brother Sam had previously made the same mistake, and shared an old picture of the same column which had been completely destroyed. 

Amy’s post comes after she was revealed to be among the names appearing in Celebrity Ex In The City, which is set to return this autumn.

The series is a spin off of Ex On The Beach, with the name change coming as the show was filmed in London, after coronavirus travel restrictions prevented it from being filmed abroad. 

Celebrities’ past flames will make appearances throughout the series and the tablet of terror is back to stir things up. 

The stars will have the awkward decision to chose their blind date or ex for a second date, meaning there will be plenty of drama in store.

Amy found fame on Love Island, when she was unceremoniously dumped by ‘half boyfriend’ Curtis Pritchard, 24, when he developed feelings for other women.

The former British Airways cabin crew member won the heart of the nation when she bowed out of the ITV2 reality series with a dignified speech after being one of the original Islanders. 

Dancer Curtis went on to finish the show in fourth place alongside Irish grid girl Maura Higgins with the couple splitting earlier this year.

im a celebritys ant mcpartlin gushes that anne marie corbett is his happy place in shows final

Ant McPartlin has made a rare comment about his relationship with Anne-Marie Corbett during Friday’s final of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

The TV host, 45, revealed that his ‘happy place’ would be ‘at home with my girlfriend and the kids’ when asked by Jordan North during his nerve-wracking snake trial.

Declan Donnelly also revealed his, cheekily saying it would be Newcastle United football club’s grounds St James’ Park, during the sweet exchange of small talk.

Ant and Anne-Marie have been dating for the past two years, with the duo often being seen out walking their dogs together during lockdown. 

TV host Ant has rarely commented on their relationship, but didn’t hesitate to say being with Anne-Marie was his ‘happy place’ during I’m A Celebrity.

The conversation came up as radio host Jordan, 30, who finished the show in second place, tried to distract himself during his trial.

Ensuring to go out with a memorable task, Jordan had to lay entombed in a metal cage while 50 snakes slithered all over him.

In an attempt to make the 10 minutes go by faster, Jordan chatted away to the hosts and asked them random questions as well as for their autographs.

The 30-year-old DJ asked the duo to name their ‘happy place’, telling Ant: ‘You go first.’

He quickly said, ‘at home with my girlfriend and the kids’, which prompted an ‘oh, that’s lovely’ from Jordan as he tried his best to stay composed with the snakes.    

I’m A Celebrity viewers loved the emotional comment from Ant, with some saying it had made them a little tearful.

One person said their ‘heart melted’ when Ant said Anne-Marie was his happy place, while another said they were ‘not okay’. 

Some people even joked that Dec would in the ‘doghouse’ after he declared St James’ Park as his happy place despite Ant’s emotional answer. 

Earlier this year Ant declared that Anne-Marie was one of his ‘greatest loves’ when asked to pick what he valued most in life during a recent interview.

Unable to pick just one thing, Ant reeled off his family, his girlfriend Anne-Marie, her two daughters from a previous relationship, and their dogs Milo and Bumble, jokingly adding Newcastle United football team.

Ant and Anne-Marie were first linked in March, 2018, two months after Ant released a statement to confirm that he had split from wife of 12-years Lisa Armstrong.

Anne-Marie separated from her husband Scott in October 2017, and the pair amicably co-parent their two daughters.    

While Lisa and Ant finalised their divorce back in April after their split in January 2018 following the presenter’s highly documented battle with painkillers and alcohol. 

Ant and Dec’s latest stint presenting I’m A Celebrity came to an end on Friday night after Giovanna Fletcher was declared Queen of the Castle.

Jordan was awarded second place while Vernon Kay managed to scoop third after entertaining viewers over the past three weeks.

Final three: Jordan came second in this year's I'm A Celebrity, while Vernon Kay took third place and Giovanna Fletcher was crowned the first Queen of the Castle
