Gary, who has also been named musical director of the ship’s 710 Club, later reclined in a leather sofa sipping from a whiskey glass in what looked like a bar lounge.

As well as working on P&0 cruises as a musical director, Gary is set to make his fans dreams come by meeting them on-board the luxury vessel.

He will tutor the club’s resident band, and even design the bar’s cocktails.

As she puckers up for the camera, Josh puckered up for her, planting a kiss on the blonde’s cheek. 

Anna captioned the festive photograph: ‘To the moon and back and always’, adding a heart emoji.

Taking to her popular YouTube channel, Anna wore what appeared akin to clown makeup while picking up Josh from the gym.  

‘Babe, are you joking or?’ he said, smiling as he looked at his girlfriend. To which a nonchalant Anna replied: ‘What do you mean?’ 

The prank continued with Josh looking astonished: ‘Your whole makeup is different… your lipstick, your eye shadow.’

He’s now the only brother of the Burgess clan to have become an Australian citizen.

Speaking to The Daily Telegraph on Sunday, Tom Burgess said he’d decided to apply in 2018 as he had ‘fallen in love’ with the country.

The 27-year-old South Sydney Rabbitohs star is engaged to model Tahlia Giumelli and the couple share five-month-old daughter Sophie.

Tom arrived in Sydney from the UK eight years ago, but only expected to stay for one year. 

‘Who would’ve thought?’ the sportsman told the Sunday Telegraph. ‘I’d only signed a one-year deal at the time and I wanted to give it a go, but back then I couldn’t have imagined how my life would unfold.’

Fast-forward eight years, and Tom is still signed with the Rabbitohs and is planning a wedding with Tahlia, 26.

‘I’m so proud to be an Australian, getting married to an Aussie girl and having our beautiful Sophie,’ he said, adding that by 2018 he had ‘fallen in love’ with Australia.

‘Lots of communication and appreciation for what the other person is doing is always key! Work as a team!’ she wrote online.   

The couple got engaged on their three-year anniversary – December 31.

Tziporah Malkah debuted her 50kg weight loss in October last year, after previously tipping the scales at 120kg.

And the 46-year-old, formerly known as Kate Fischer, showed off the results of her transformation while out with friends in Sydney on Saturday.

Sharing several photos to Instagram, the Sirens star revealed her toned tummy in a jumper and pant ensemble as she took in the sights and mingled with loved ones.

Posing inside what looked to be an art gallery, Tziporah looked casual chic in a cat print sweater teamed with black satin pants.  

She pushed up her top to show off her trim mid-section, swept her red tresses into an effortless topknot, and added black-framed reading glasses to the look.

Other photos saw Tziporah as the life of the party, enjoying beverages with friends at what looked to be a nearby bar.

‘Spending money I don’t have but sheez passionfruit margarita is a dangerous kind of heaven,’ she wrote in the caption of one post.

Tziporah revealed her dramatic weight loss transformation on Channel Nine’s A Current Affair in October last year. 

Tziporah, who was engaged to James Packer in the late ’90s, said she had lost 50kg thanks to healthy eating, surgery and hypnotherapy.

The one-time Sydney ‘it girl’ underwent a ‘mini lipo tuck’ and a Brazilian butt lift, and also worked alongside Mark Stephens, a hypnotherapist specialising in weight loss.

‘[The] mental anguish from all the stresses of life are just not there anymore. And I think that’s probably the greatest gift,’ Tziporah said of her journey.

Breaking down in tears, she added: ‘I’m proud but I’m also incredibly vain! I love myself right now.’  

Tziporah’s weight had ballooned after she relocated to the U.S. in the early 2000s. 

She decided to slim down after tipping the scales at 120kg during her appearance on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! in 2017.
