Christine McGuinness shares how her children coped amid air traffic chaos | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV



Christine McGuinness was forced to extend her family holiday amid last week’s air traffic control chaos.

But as she prepares to return to the UK, she has taken to Instagram to share how her three children, twins Leo and Penelope, nine, and Felicity, six, have coped with the last-minute change of plans.

Posting on her stories to her 710,000 followers, Christine wrote: “Good morning everyone, so you know we’re on holiday for longer than we planned to be.

“We should have only been here for four days but now were on I think day 10 now or something, I cant remember.


“But anyway, it takes them a while to settle into places and I think it worked out amazing that we’re still here because if we hadn’t of done, we wouldn’t have done half the stuff that we have.”

All three of Christine’s children, who she shares with comedian and TV presenter Paddy McGuinness have been diagnosed with autism.

She continued her post writing: “Like now, we’re sat in a café, normally we just stay in a hotel, so that everything is familiar for them.

“Last night, we went to watch the hotel entertainment, I’ve been taking them every night but we haven’t managed to get all three of them in the room, one of them might be outside, one with ear defenders on.

“But last night all three of them came into the hotel entertainment, watched a whole show and even got up on stage, with all the other kids and I was just like… “this is amazing”


“But anyway they’ve done absolutely amazing and it’s time to go back to school now but these extra couple of days on holiday, they’ve absolutely smashed it. I’m very very proud.”

Christine then took to Instagram again to share more holiday snaps with the first image being of herself standing in the sea with a caption box that read: “Leo, Penelope, Felicity, I am so proud of you.”

She captioned the carousel of images with “Proudest mummy”.

Fans rushed to show their support with one fan writing: “Proud of them & I’m proud of you! 2/3 years ago this would have terrified you in so many ways and just look at you now, showing them babies that If mama can do it they can too!! You needed this, was meant to be, but come home now!!! No more drama!!! We miss you all“ (sic).

Whilst a second added: “There’s no stopping you now…a lot of autistic children love going on holidays.. it’s just getting them to go is the problem..but once they do it ..there’s no stopping them…once there’s McDonald’s …its there anxiety that’ stops them…but mrsmcguinness that’s it ..all they will keep asking you is when mammy are we going away again…in fairness I think as well it’s a little bit of maturity”


And a third said: “Any holiday with #autistic children that goes well is amazing…Its a huge confidence boost for all”

Christine also shared images of the children’s meals which included a plate of chips and plain pasta, which she captioned “beige food always”.

Other parents related to Christine with one commenting: “The beige plate of food is LIFE,”

A second said: “That is literally my son’s diet when we are on holiday too!”

And a third wrote: “Fabulous! I recognise the food from all our trips, happy memories for all.”

Holly Willoughby wows at NTAs without Schofield one year after being booed | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV



Holly Willoughby looked on incredible Tuesday night as she showed off her sense of style in a stunning lilac dress which skimmed the floor.

The gorgeous frock featured a bandeau style corset which cinched in her waist and highlighted her incredible figure as she made an appearance on the red carpet at the National Television Awards 2023.

The 42-year-old took to the red carpet solo as her former co-presenter Phillip Schofield sensationally quit his role on This Morning earlier this year.

The stunning attire designed by Suzanne Nevill London saw Holly put her incredible physique on display as she posed for photos ahead of the big event.


The blonde beauty looked ethereal in the figure-hugging dress which featured a long train.

Holly put on a brave face despite the ITV favourite getting booed when she took to the stage at the award ceremony last year.

The presenting duo attended the awards show on (October 13), where This Morning was named Best Daytime Show.

When she took to the stage alongside her former co-star Phillip the pair were met with faint boos by the audience.

It comes after the presenting duo sparked outrage amid claims the pair had skipped the queue when they went to pay their respects to Queen Elizabeth II at her lying in state in September 2022.


When taking to the stage, neither addressed the controversy, but Phil said the award means “so much to us every year, especially this year”.

He added: “Please don’t think we ever get complacent and please don’t think we ever take it for granted. This means so much to us every year, especially this year. We have the best boss.”

Holly’s appearance at this year’s NTAs comes in the wake of the Phillip scandal which has plagued This Morning after the longstanding presenter, who quit ITV altogether in May, admitted to an “unwise but not illegal affair” with a much younger colleague.

The 62-year-old has since unfollowed Holly on Instagram ahead of the ceremony but still follows her sister Kelly and at the time of writing Holly still follows Phillip on Instagram.

Holly and Phil had been among the regular nominees for best presenters until the long-running scandal, which has also seen staff on the show raise allegations of a “toxic” working environment and alleged bullying.


However, Holly has not been nominated this year and instead her co-star Alison Hammond has been nominated for best presenter.

The nomination is expected to break Ant and Dec’s 21-year winning streak.

The National Television Awards airs tonight on ITVX at 8pm.

This Morning presenters booed by NTAs audience after ITV bosses feared it could happen | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV



Fears that ITV nominees were going to be booed at the National Television Awards appear to have come true.

ITV bosses reportedly feared that This Morning stars might be booed following the scandal that has engulfed the programme since Phillip Schofield dramatically left the show in May.

Phillip, 62, sensationally quit all of his TV roles following the admission that he had an “unwise but not illegal” affair with a younger male colleague.

Viewers watching the show at home heard booing from the crowd when the This Morning team appeared on screen.


Joel Dommett introduced Holly, Alison, Dermot and the rest of the team when the crowd reacted.

Fans were quick to take to X, formerly known as Twitter, to share what they heard.

One fan viewer said: “I heard boos for this morning I’m sorry if they win after all that’s happened, it’s a fix #NTAs2023.”

A second said: “Piers Morgan got more boos than This Morning lmao #NTAs2023.”

Whilst a third supported the This Morning team, writing: “People need to give the whole @thismorning drama a rest, there is zero need to boo someone you’ve never met but feel you “know” #NTAs2023.”


There were also concerns that fans may have taken aim at the cast and crew of I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here!.

Worries were raised due to Matt Hancock’s controversial appearance in the show. His participation attracted over 1,000 Ofcom complaints.

Despite the backlash, the reality TV show is up for the Bruce Forsyth Entertainment Award, whilst show hosts Ant and Dec are up for the Best TV Presenter award.

Speaking of the worries, a source has claimed: “Bosses see this win as proof of I’m A Celebrity’s ongoing popularity but also a reflection of the fact that it returned to form in 2022 after Covid forced it to be filmed in the UK rather than Australia for two years.

“They don’t want that glorious moment on stage to be affected by anything negative, but they also know the strength of feeling against Matt.”


Piers Morgan was also booed as Joel pointed him out to the audience. Piers took it in good humour as the TalkTV host laughed and shook his head at the crowd’s reaction.

Jeff Brazier in floods of tears as Strictly star son Bobby wins Rising Star gong at NTAs | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV



EastEnders newcomer Bobby Brazier has picked up an award at tonight’s NTAs.

The 20-year-old took to the stage and paid tribute to his dad, saying: “It has little to do with me and everything to do with my dad.”

Bobby looked nervous as he continued: “For over the course of the last 20 years, I’ve consistently heard him say, ‘Because I can’.”

He went on to say: “And him just saying that…because I can,” before lifting the award and beaming with pride.


The camera panned to his father Jeff Brazier, 44, who was visibly emotional as he watched his son scoop the award for Rising Star.

Fans went crazy on X, formerly known as Twitter, with @‌Floral_Fanatic_ writing: “Bobby Brazier is such a charming young guy & deserves all the success in the world. Jeff is such a great dad too @‌JeffBrazier #NTAs.”

@‌ZynaEnjoys posted: “Wow #BobbyBrazier speech #NTAs.”

@‌vscobie17 wrote: “How bloomin lovely was that speech! Bobby Brazier has been raised right! #NTAs #NTA2023.”

Whilst @‌geordiegalg said: “Could not be happier for Bobby Brazier. What an amazing young man he is, an absolute credit to his dad and his mum would be so proud too. He is going to be incredible on Strictly, I can’t wait! #NTAs #EastEnders.”


Bobby joined the cast of EastEnders earlier this year to play Freddie Slater.

Whilst on stage Bobby also thanked his EastEnders co-stars.

He praised them for being supportive, lovely and merciful, claiming that it was everything that he needed.

He also joked that his fellow cast are so good that he doesn’t need to ask questions – he can just observe and he automatically gets better.

After he received his award, Bobby told how he was going to celebrate his win saying: “I’ll have a dance tonight, if my dad wants to… I think I’m going to cry when I see him.”


He was also asked what he was going to do with his gong and thoughtfully responded: “I just want to go and give it to my dad, or Lacey Turner.”

Bobby is also set to appear as a contestant on the 21st series of Strictly Come Dancing in 2023
