I’m A Celebrity’s Carly Zucker: I want to get pregnant on my honeymoon

Carly ZuckerI’m A Celebrity’s Carly Zucker has revealed she wants to get pregnant as soon as she marries fiancé Chelsea and England footballer Joe Cole next year.

The couple, who’ve been dating for six years and got engaged last year, are planning to marry in a private ceremony followed by a lavish reception in London next summer and she’s said she wants them to have a baby straight away so the child can join them at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

The WAG explained: “Joe and I will be starting a family as soon as we’re married. Ideally, I would like to get pregnant on the honeymoon.

“That way I’ll give birth just before the World Cup. It would be great to go there with the baby to give Joe and the England team some support.

“Joe will be a brilliant dad and I can’t wait for us to be a family.”

Carly got voted off the celebrity show on Friday after 14 days in the Australian jungle camp. She said it was a “relief” to be voted out because “Everything was a struggle. Washing your clothes was a struggle, the weather was a struggle, eating was a nightmare.

“It isn’t exactly how I imagined it to be. I’m a family person so I really missed my partner and my family a lot.”

She added that she expects friend glamour model Nicola McLean to do well in the show: “top three, definitely.”

X Factor bosses shocked to find pregnancy test at contestants’ home

The X FactorX Factor bosses were reportedly outraged to find a used pregnancy test kit in the home shared by the show’s contestants.

The remaining female finalists share a house in Hampstead, North London with a number of female production staff and according to the People newspaper, the test stick was found in a communal room earlier in the month.

An inside source told the newspaper: “After an investigation was launched the female who owned the kit sheepishly came forward and admitted it was hers.

“Bosses went mad when told about the find because they have a duty of care towards the contestants and staff during their stay because of their relatively young ages.

“The words ‘pregnancy’ and ‘X Factor‘ just don’t sit well together.

“It’s meant to be a family show and bosses will go to any length to protect that image.

“The show is getting massive ratings and with the likes of Take That and Britney Spears appearing on [it], the last thing they need is a major sex/pregnancy scandal.

“Any bad publicity like this can cause real problems.”

Girl groups, Girlband and Bad Lashes, stayed at the house before they were voted off earlier in the series as did Laura White, who was voted off in week five, and Ruth Lorenzo, who was voted off last night. Remaining contestants Alexandra Burke and Diana Vickers are still currently based at the house.

Winona Ryder and the case of the missing $125,000 jewels

winona ryderWinona Ryder has reportedly been accused failing to return loaned jewellery worth $125,000.

The Girl, Interrupted star borrowed the Bulgari bracelet and ring, as well as designer clothes, for a Marie Claire event in Madrid last weekend. The magazine is said to have arranged the loans but when Winona came to leave the hotel the following morning around 6am, there was no one available from the magazine to collect the jewels.

French magazine Voici reports that Winona claims she handed them in an envelope to the hotel’s front desk staff for safe-keeping but CCTV surveillance footage doesn’t show her handing over an envelope.

However other sources claim that Winona left everything in her hotel room and the envelope story was planted by someone trying to divert investigation from focusing on those who had access to the room.

A spokesperson for Bulgari has confirmed the items were loaned to a celebrity via Marie Claire but refused to comment on the current status of the jewellery.

Earlier this month, Winona was rushed off a transatlantic flight after falling ill during the journey. The plane was given priority landing and Winona rushed through security after reportedly overdosing on anti-anxiety medication that she had taken to help combat her fear of flying.

The Little Children star was working in a sandwich shop when she found out she’d been cast in Peter Jackson’s Heavenly Creatures in 1994.

“She is still a mess over Marcheline’s departure, believing no one understands her the way her mother did. They had a very strong bond that she feels she will never have with another person.

“Brad has been her rock, and he will always be there for her. Without his love, she would never have been able to cope.

“[And] Mad tries to cheer her up and makes her laugh and smile.

“She feels like she is the most privileged woman to have such an incredible family and has said her mother is a guardian angel over her household.”
