Regency drama Bridgerton returns later this month. The producers promise there will be just as much sex and scandal as last time. In an interview with the Radio Times, lead actor Jonathan Bailey, also known as Viscount Anthony Bridgerton, spoke about filming the sizzling love scenes. “There are tricks in the trade,” he said. “Small pillows, and it’s amazing what you can do with a half-inflated netball.” I have no idea what that means, but it definitely doesn’t sound sexy.

Director Jane Campion delivers the awards speech
Director Jane Campion’s acceptance speech at the Critics Choice Awards was the most memorable moment of the night for all the wrong reasons. Collecting the Best Director Award for The power of the dog, Campion began by saying how “honoured” she was to be in the same room as sisters Venus and Serena Williams. But then added that the pair “doesn’t play against the boys like I have to.” She has since apologized, saying her words were “thoughtless,” but for many it was too little, too late. In fact, some are wondering if it will ruin their chance at the Oscar (final voting started this week). Perhaps it’s best to remind nominees to keep things short and sweet. When Alfred Hitchcock accepted his Oscar for Lifetime Achievement, he said, “Thank you… very much Indeed” and left the stage. Abruptly, but at least there’s no room for error.
Tom Brady’s NFL ball buyer dumped after he ‘retired’
For a US soccer fan, it’s been a week of ups and downs. On Saturday, they snagged the last seven-time Football Super Bowl winner, Tom Brady, who he threw in an NFL game before retiring. The historic ball was auctioned and achieved the impressive sum of 518,628 US dollars. However, they may have regretted that decision when Brady announced 24 hours after the auction ended that he was “quitting” and returning to the NFL. The ball is now estimated to be worth a fraction of the cost. Talk about buyer’s remorse.

The Pumpkin, Evil and the Ugly Truth. Dug is not a potato
A New Zealand couple who thought they made history by unearthing the world’s largest potato in their garden were dashed from their dreams this week. Scientific tests carried out by the Guinness Book of Records, revealed that it wasn’t a potato at all, but an ordinary tuber squash. As a result, it was disqualified from entry in the good book. It was a hit for couple Colin and Donna Craig-Brown, who have dubbed the 17-pound pumpkin Dug and frequently post photos of him online wearing an adorable hat. Dug may not have made the Guinness Book of World Records, but Craig and Donna are still proud of his achievements. “He’s the biggest non-potato in the world,” they said. That is the ghost.
