Published

It’s been hailed by Channel Nine as Australia’s ‘wedding of the year’. 

But not everyone is as excited about watching Married At First Sight stars Jules Robinson and Cameron Merchant walk down the aisle for a second time later this month on A Current Affair.

Nine’s newly-released trailer for the 90-minute TV special has received mixed responses, with some viewers blasting the couple for signing a lucrative TV deal rather than celebrating their nuptials privately. 

'Some people will do anything for money!' Viewers have blasted Jules Robertson and Cameron Merchant's televised wedding special as a 'pointless' cash-grab

‘Really?? Some people will do anything for money. Why wouldn’t you want a private romantic wedding…. oh that’s right you want another 30 sec of fame on such a special day. Ridiculous!!!!!’ one user wrote on Facebook. 

‘More interested in lingering fame now than love. Otherwise why not run off together into the sunset arm in arm… they seemed to genuinely like each other. Now I think they love $$$ more than each other,’ another wrote. 

Another fan agreed: ‘Jules is already getting too big for her boots… they are not stars…,’ one wrote.

Others questioned why viewers would bother to watch the couple get married for a second time, just months after their first ceremony aired on Married At First Sight. 

‘Didn’t they already tie the knot on ‘Married At First Sight?’ one confused fan commented, while another viewer added: ‘Left it too long- we’ve moved on!’  

Others, however, defended the TV special, with one writing: ‘Can’t wait! Congratulations Cam and Jules xx’

Earlier in the day, the reality star revealed she wants to use hypnobirthing to make labour less painful when she gives birth to her daughter in February. 

Lydia told her Instagram followers she ‘absolutely loved’ her ‘really educational’ first hypnobirthing session last week but admitted she is nervous about giving birth.

She's a fighter: Lydia shared another snap of her daughter sucking her thumb, joking her baby was 'ready to spar'

Hypnobirthing involves using breathing techniques, visualisation and meditation to help concentrate the mind on the birth rather than the pain. 

Lydia said: ‘Tomorrow is my 29-week midwife appointment when we begin discussions about birthing plan which obviously is so exciting. 

‘But I am a little bit nervous of course because ultimately I’m pushing a child out of my vajajay so I know its not going to be the most pleasant thing in the world.’

First baby: Lydia revealed she was pregnant in August, and her due date is the same week in February as her best friend Lucy Mecklenburgh's  (pictured October)

Lydia revealed she was expecting back in August, and her due date is the same week as her best friend Lucy Mecklenburgh’s. 

Former TOWIE star Lydia split from the baby’s father, Lee Cronin, – but has previously said he still goes to every scan with her. 

The couple had been together for two years before calling time on the relationship.

During a previous Instagram Q&A she was asked if Lee is an ‘active part’ of her unborn daughter’s life. She said: ‘Our baby was very much planned and we are both very excited for her arrival.’

Kendall Jenner and former flame Harry Styles were clearly feeling very cheeky when they took part in Spill Your Guts Or Fill Your Guts on The Late Late Show on CBS.

The 24-year-old supermodel was a guest along with Tracee Ellis Ross, 47, while Harry, 25, was hosting in the absence of James Corden, 41 on Tuesday.

Harry and Kendall who were first romantically linked in 2014 and sparks were still flying as they made VERY sexual comments and ate cod sperm and a bull’s penis.

They had the option of either answering a question or eating things like bug trifle, jellyfish, giant water scorpion, 1,000-year-old eggnog and cow blood and pork tongue jelly.

Harry picked out the eggnog for his ‘longtime friend’ Kendall and then asked her to rank her siblings from best to worst parents.

‘I feel like, I could answer that,’ said Kendall who wore a strapless jumpsuit with a print of colorful shoes. ‘I’ll start by saying they all really are amazing.’

‘Okay,’ Harry said, with a cheeky glint in his eye.

‘Rob is number one,  he is so good to his daughter,’ Kendall said.

She paused and Harry told her to drink the eggnog before Kendall blurted, ‘Then Khloe, Kim, Kylie and… Kourtney’.

Kendall picked the cod sperm for Harry as he said, ‘All in a day’s work,’ before enquiring: ‘How do they get the sperm out of the cod?’

She then asked him, ‘Which songs on your last album were about me?’

Great question: The top model asked Harry, ''Which songs on your last album were about me?'

Harry put a napkin on his shirt and grabbed a fork.

‘Just don’t look at it,’ Kendall said. 

‘Oh yeah, because that fixes everything,’ he giggled. 

‘What are we doing? What are we doing?,’ the former One Direction star said while chewing the cod sperm and struggling to get it down. 

‘Just swallow it,’ a flirty Kendall said. 

‘To spit or to swallow, that is the question,’ said a cheeky Harry, before spitting it all out into an ice bucket. 

Harry then served her up the salmon smoothie and Kendall revealed that she hates salmon.

He asked Kendall who is the highest paid supermodel in the world to name the least likable model.

‘I have the answer, I can’t say it though,’ Kendall said before she drank the salmon smoothie, saying how much she hates it and that it really carries an aftertaste before gagging.

‘Watching you drink that made me feel sick,’ Harry said.

‘Disgusting,’ Kendall declared.

Kendall also had to choose between eating bull penis and revealing the ‘most surprising celebrity to ever slide into her social media direct messages.

‘Who is he?!,’ Harry yelled at her.

Kendall then picked the giant water scorpion for Harry and asked him to rank the solo careers of his former One Direction bandmates Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik.

Harry immediately started eating the giant water scorpion.

Kendall revealed that she wasn’t into the family reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians when it first came out.

With her sensational figure in mind, Abbey designed the number to perfectly showcase her slender pins. 

Adding to the look with a pair of sky-high stiletto heels, the presenter also sported a glossy blowdry and a glamorously bronzed coat of make-up.   

Abbey’s new campaign comes shortly after she defended her daughter Sophia’s modelling debut after they collaborated for a campaign with Lipsy.

The star shares daughters Sophia, eight and Liberty, four, as well as sons Johnny, 21 months and Jack, six months with her husband Peter Crouch, 38.

During an appearance on Lorraine last month, Abbey remained defiant in the face of critics of the tender age of Sophia’s modelling debut.

Abbey stated: ‘I just think there’s so much bad stuff in world, any excuse have fun with my daughter! I’ve never pushed her into it, she wanted to do it! 

‘Having four kids, spreading my time is hard, so I appreciate spending time with my daughter.’

Meanwhile, Abbey’s romance with husband Peter Crouch is still going strong.

During an appearance on The Chris Moyles Show on Radio X, host Chris Moyles comically goaded Peter about her and insisted that she was ‘out of his league’, which the former England star insisted is true.

He said: ‘Yeah I’ve pulled the wool over her eyes for 14 years! Like a magician! It’s a strange thing yeah, one of the wonders of the world!’

Of their first meeting, Peter said: ‘Yeah I remember the occasion. We met, it was great, we got on fantastically well…

‘She gave me her number – amazingly – she went away and I carried on, and I should have known then, but I was talking to someone else who was also female…

‘She came over and said “Look at you! Who do you think you are?” as if we were married already. She went mental! And I was like “I’m only talking”. I should have known then!’
