Lily Allen shared a rare snap with her daughters from lockdown as she revealed she had ‘aged 10 years’ during the coronavirus pandemic.

The Smile singer, 34, happily posed with her adorable daughters Ethel, eight, and Marnie, seven – who she shares with ex husband Sam Cooper – in a fun selfie from quarantine.

The star also reflected on the difficulties faced during lockdown and how lucky UK residents were in comparison to those forced from their homes for different reasons.

Lily wrote in the caption: ‘I’ve aged 10 years in as many days. I’m tired and scared, but while we’re stuck inside for reasons beyond our control, it’s worth reminding ourselves that many families are driven FROM their homes, for a multitude of reasons, financial burdens, war, domestic violence, or even climate change.

‘We are very lucky really.’

Lily and ex-husband Sam first began dating in 2009 and tied the knot in 2011.

In January 2019, Lily confirmed she had officially divorced Sam, two years after revealing their split.

The singer confirmed the official end of the pair’s five-year marriage in a candid interview on Loose Women.

The Smile songstress said she shares a ‘very friendly’ relationship with Sam, and the pair have an unconventional custody agreement, where they take their daughters for alternative weeks at a time.

‘Me and my ex-husband share custody, a week on and a week off, which is useful for my work, when he’s got them, I can do that,’ she added.

While Lily and Sam aren’t together any more, she admitted they are still ‘really friendly’.

Lily previously admitted she cheated on Sam after struggles with fame led her to lose her identity.

The star has since moved on with actor David Harbour, whom she is in quarantine with.

They’ve been inseparable since falling in love last year, and the couple recently revealed their delight at being together during the coronavirus pandemic.

David, 44, was shooting his hit Netflix show Stranger Things in Atlanta, but after the set was shut down earlier this month he jumped on a plane from his New York home to the UK to spend time with Lily.

David, who plays Jim Hopper in the popular Netflix series Stranger Things, admitted it was a ‘really bad situation’ for his mental health ‘to be quarantined alone’ in New York and so he decided to travel to be with his girlfriend.

Carole Baskin has refused to appear in the rumoured Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness reunion episode.

The Big Cat Rescue owner, 58, who has claimed the Netflix docuseries is full of ‘lies and innuendos’, has said that she wasn’t approached and wouldn’t participate. 

Joe Exotic’s husband Dillon Passage also revealed that he wasn’t ‘contacted’ to be a part of the live reunion episode, which is still yet to be confirmed by the streaming giant.

Carole’s representative told Entertainment Weekly: ‘We have not been approached about a new episode and would not participate if asked.’

While Joe Exotic’s husband Dillon told Andy Cohen on Monday during his SiriusXM show: ‘It’s going to be a live episode, kind of like a reunion. Netflix didn’t contact me to be a part of that.’

When asked if Carole would be taking part, he added: ‘I have no idea. It’s more like a talent interview. That’s how [producers] described it.’

The rumoured reunion episode is still yet to be confirmed by Netflix and was first revealed last week by Jeff Lowe.

Jeff, 67, who took over Joe’s G.W Zoo, said he was filming with the streaming giant and the episode would be released this week.

Sharing a video with his wife Lauren Dropla, 28, to Twitter last week, he said: ‘Netflix is adding one more episode, it will be on next week, they’re filming here tomorrow.’

It comes after Carole hit out at the documentary last week in a post on her Big Cat Rescue site.

The 58-year-old animal rights activist was particularly upset that the seven-part series raises the possibility that she was involved in the disappearance of her husband Jack ‘Don’ Lewis.

Her post suggests the late businessman was suffering from dementia and behaving erratically in the weeks leading up to his disappearance, and she attributes many of the conspiracy theories to his friends and contacts of Joe Exotic.

Carole opened her lengthy post with a video featuring her current husband Howard Baskin who claimed that the filmmakers originally proposed a documentary like Blackfish, which focuses on the treatment of Orcas at aquatic theme parks.

‘When the directors of the Netflix documentary Tiger King came to us five years ago they said they wanted to make the big cat version of Blackfish (the documentary that exposed abuse at SeaWorld),’ Carole wrote.

‘That would expose the misery caused by the rampant breeding of big cat cubs for cub petting exploitation and the awful life the cats lead in roadside zoos and back yards if they survive.’

But she said the series that was ultimately produced had ‘the sole goal of being as salacious and sensational as possible to draw viewers.’

She went on to deride the ‘lies and innuendos from people who are not credible’ who claimed she was involved in the 1997 disappearance of her husband Don Lewis.

Carole claimed that he was gradually showing signs of ‘mental deterioration’ for years leading up to his disappearance. 

Following the success of Netflix hit Tiger King, Investigation Discovery recently revealed it will delve into whether Carole murdered her missing husband in a limited series, Investigating the Strange World of Joe Exotic.

Former NRL star Beau Ryan has now become a household name after parlaying a sporting career into regular appearances on TV.  

And on Tuesday, the 34-year-old opted to showcase his transformation from awkward teenager to professional athlete on Instagram. 

Beau shared a series of rarely seen photographs, which he opted to split with more contemporary pictures.

Beau first showed himself sitting as a teenager in a pair of yellow board shorts, juxtaposed against a speedo-clad photo of himself. 

His next picture saw him pose in a white T-shirt, split against one of him presenting The Amazing Race last year. 

Beau continued his walk down memory lane sharing a picture of him as a toddler wearing a Bulldogs jersey alongside one of him in primary school. 

The former footballer then shared a childhood shot of him with shampoo over his face, as well as two school photos. 

'Had some time to go through old photos over the last few days. Got me reminiscing,' he wrote, with him promoting the Stan series Bloom. (L) As a young man (R) on The Amazing Race

‘I’d go back to the 90s in a heartbeat,’ he added. 

Beau finished by joking about his skinny fame, saying it looks like he didn’t start eating until 2002.

Beau has been busy this year, with him recently competing in the Channel Ten reboot of Dancing With The Stars. 

He was forced to deny he only received a fee of $40,000 last month, with him telling The Kyle and Jackie O Show recently he actually received $250,000. 

‘I was last to go on and [producers] obviously begged me, and I think Angie signed on before me…. I think [Angie] got the most, and then I got more than her when I signed on last,’ Beau explained. 

‘So you’re saying you got paid more than $250,000 to do Dancing with the Stars?’ asked radio host Jackie ‘O’ Henderson. ‘I think so, yeah,’ Beau replied.

Earlier in the week, the dynamic duo turned their seemingly abandoned workspace into their own personal catwalk.

The pair are among the minority who still travel to their respective places of work amid the the country’s current lockdown. 

But despite the relentless gloom, they found light relief by using an empty desk in their Leicester Square office to perform an impromptu fashion show.

Appropriately soundtracked with David Bowie hit Fashion, the short video sees both striking sassy poses, but Amanda – who broke her leg little more than six months ago – almost loses her balance as she completes her walk. 

The blonde took things further later in the day as she wheeled her bin out while wearing a shimmering evening gown.

Alongside the post, Amanda wrote: ‘Wheelie wanted to dress up tonight! #BallgownBinsOut #GlamForYourBinman #ClapOurKeyWorkers’.
