‘It’s here angels! NEW YOU @body_byfinch six-week challenge just announced!’ Rachael began her lengthy caption. 

‘Designed for you to dive deeper into your mind and body and unleash a brand new potential,’ she added.

The mother-of-two enjoys a smoothie for breakfast, consisting of almond milk, avocado, frozen banana, spinach, a scoop of Kissed Earth Replenish Protein in vanilla or chocolate and nut butter.

‘I also can’t go without my collagen coffee. It’s a black coffee with a scoop of collagen powder, medicinal mushrooms and maca powder blended,’ she said.

For lunch Rachael has been putting together a ‘macro bowl’ which includes eggs, grilled broccoli, kale, brown rice, tomato slices and some avocado on the side.

Dinner is grilled fish and steamed vegetables with roasted baby chat potatoes, with an aim to balance the protein, carbohydrates and fats in her meals.

‘If I do strength training on a Monday, the following day I’ll do a body move session – moving my body by engaging in a swim session, walking or dancing. I like to alternate pending on how I feel,’ she told FEMAIL.

Rachael’s favourite time to exercise is in the morning for 30 to 60 minutes when she has the most energy, rather than at night when she has to ‘rev up her adrenal system’ and ‘shoot her cortisol through the roof’.

‘I don’t want to spark up my nervous system when I am starting to wind down,’ she explained.

Former Bachelor star and radiographer Brittany Hockley spoke candidly about her mental health struggles, amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Addressing her Instagram fans on Sunday, the 32-year-old said she’s ‘cried many times’ over the uncertainty of the situation, and has felt ‘scared, stressed and tired’.

Ending the post on a positive note, the Sydney-based TV personality reminded her followers that ‘it’s okay to not be okay’ and ‘we are all in this together’.

Alongside a photo of her bikini-clad self looking out into the distance, Brittany began: ‘Just out here looking for 2021 like… Today, I want to tell you that it’s okay to not be ok.’ 

The brunette went on to say that while it’s all well and good to focus on your physical health while at home, your mental health is just as important.

‘As a mental health advocate, I’m here to remind you that with everything going on, every single person is struggling, everyone is facing things they haven’t before and never imagined they would face. We are all facing so much uncertainty,’ she said.

‘I am scared, stressed, tired, worried. My motivation is at an all time low right now, and I’ve cried many times,’ she continued.

Brittany urged her followers to reach out to friends and family if they’re feeling the weight of the world, and to check in on others.

‘There will be light on the other side, so if you’re reading this and are having a really hard day today, know that you are loved, not alone and you will be okay, because we are all in this together,’ she concluded. 

Fans of The Bachelor may not know that Brittany is also a radiographer, and previously revealed on Instagram what it’s really like to work inside a clinic treating patients with coronavirus (COVID-19).   

Earlier this month, Brittany shared a photo of herself dressed in scrubs, a surgical mask and plastic gloves, alongside a sobering caption.  

‘Stop being idiots. I get that the fact you can’t see it gives you a sense of confidence and comfort. But it’s real,’ she wrote, referring to the novel coronavirus.

The healthcare professional went on to explain she had witnessed extremely stressful situations while working at a clinic.  

‘Seeing patients abuse doctors, nurses, radiographers, receptionists and other staff for the waiting time and the ‘treatment’ they are getting is disgraceful,’ she wrote. 

‘Yelling at healthcare workers because they are caught getting a drink of water (can guarantee it’s probably the first break they’ve taken in 12 hours) is disgraceful.’ 

She claimed doctors were telling her they were going without proper protective equipment while seeing patients. 

Upset: 'Seeing patients abuse doctors, nurses, radiographers, receptionists and other staff for the waiting time and the 'treatment' they are getting is disgraceful,' Brittany wrote

‘I’ve had doctors write to me saying they have to see certain patients now without the right protective equipment because of the shortage, because people are stealing it and over buying it when they don’t need it.’ 

She finished her post by asking people to stop hoarding hand sanitiser, groceries, and ignoring the government’s advice. 

Coronavirus (COVID-19) is a respiratory illness accompanied by fever, coughing, sore throat, shortness of breath and fatigue. It can produce pneumonia.

The spread of the disease, which began in Wuhan, China, has seen over 660,000 cases worldwide and more than 30,800 fatalities.

As of the evening of March 29, the total number of people diagnosed with the virus in Australia is 3,929 including 16 deaths.

Jodie Comer believes her Killing Eve character Villanelle is starting to rub off on her

Jodie Comer has revealed she believes her psychopathic Killing Eve character Villanelle is starting to rub off on her.

The actress, 27, has won widespread acclaim for her role in the BBC crime series and told how she admires how the character lives life by her own rules. 

She told The Mirror: ‘She may be a cold-blooded killer, but you can also ­appreciate that her victims perhaps deserve to die. She doesn’t kill people randomly, there’s a reason and conviction behind her actions.

‘What I think resonates with women is her honesty and unfiltered reactions to others – she lives according to her own set of rules and does as she pleases. I admire that.’

The Liverpool native drew a comparison between herself and Villanelle, saying she also has learned to trust her instincts like her daredevil character. 

She said: ‘I believe in myself and I trust my instincts and sense of purpose. I’m not someone who plans things out in advance, so I rely on my faith that things will somehow work ­themselves out if I keep working hard. I ­believe in karma.’

It was recently announced that series three of Killing Eve will be released in the US two weeks earlier than planned on BBC America.

The hit thriller took to its Twitter to reveal that the third season will now debut on Sunday April 12 as they unveiled a new explosive trailer.

Yet British viewers were left disappointed by the news as a UK release date still remains unknown, with fans speculating it could be June.

The Killing Eve account wrote: ‘Ahhhhhhhhhhh. #KillingEve returns two weeks early, Sunday, April 12 at 9pm on @BBCAmerica and @AMC_TV.’ 

The programme also posted a new explosive first look at series three, which saw Eve Polastri (Sandra Oh) alive and well after she was left for dead in series two by Villanelle.

Killing Eve has a tradition of ending each series with the fate of a main character in jeopardy, series one ended with Eve having stabbed Villanelle while series two concluded with the latter shooting the MI6 agent.

She said: 'What I think resonates with women is her honesty and unfiltered reactions to others ¿ she lives according to her own set of rules and does as she pleases. I admire that'

She said: ‘What I think resonates with women is her honesty and unfiltered reactions to others – she lives according to her own set of rules and does as she pleases. I admire that’ 

The cliffhanger finale of series two ended with Villanelle shooting Eve and leaving her for dead, after the assassin imagined living with Eve together in Alaska.

Co-showrunner Sally Woodward Gentle revealed that producers had considered if the duo should ‘do a Thelma and Louise’, but added: ‘Then what do they do?’

She told The Hollywood Reporter that Eve would ‘very quickly realise that she had been deluding herself about the reality of what that life would actually be’.

Sally said the already-announced third season would be ‘something that feels bold and different from the one before and you can explore big ideas’.

Killing Eve series three airs on April 12 at 9pm on BBC America and AMC TV.
