With anticipation building for the new series of I’m A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!, there’s been many names linked to a spot on the ITV reality show. However, fans have been given their biggest hint yet as to who will be heading into the Welsh castle when the series launches next month. The Sun has obtained pictures of a number of stars who had already been rumoured for the show arriving at a London photography studio for a photoshoot. The paper published pictures of presenter Vernon Kay, Coronation Street legend Beverley Callard and broadcaster Victoria Derbyshire arriving for the secret photoshoot in Kensal Green on Friday. There were also three new names photographed outside the venue – opera singer Russell Watson, Paralympian Hollie Arnold and stage star Ruthie Henshall. The Sun also reported sightings of previously rumoured contestants EastEnders star Jessica Plummer and former Strictly Come Dancing professional AJ Pritchard at the photography studio. Take a look at all the names below...Jessica PlummerThe actor and singer is best known for playing Chantelle Atkins on EastEnders, but her character was killed off in traumatic scenes last month, following a hard-hitting domestic violence storyline. Vernon KayThe presenter and radio DJ is known for hosting the likes of All Star Family Fortunes, Radio 1 and T4 during his career. He now works as a Formula E presenter and is married to Strictly Come Dancing host Tess Daly. Victoria DerbyshireThe BBC journalist hosted her eponymous, mid-morning current affairs show on BBC Two from 2015 until earlier this year, when it was axed amid budget cuts in the broadcaster’s News division.Beverly CallardThe soap legend is known to millions as Coronation Street’s Liz McDonald. She left her role as the former Rovers Return landlady earlier this year. AJ PritchardThe professional dancer was part of the pro line-up on Strictly Come Dancing for four years prior to quitting the BBC ballroom show earlier this year. Hollie ArnoldThe Paralympic athlete competes in the javelin and won her first Paralympic gold at the Rio 2016 games. She was made an MBE the following year. Ruthie HenshallThe stage star is known for her work in musical theatre, starring in a plethora of West End productions including Cats, Crazy For You, Chicago and Billy Elliot. She previously served as a judge on Dancing On Ice. Russell WatsonThe opera singer is commonly referred to as ‘The Voice’ having enjoyed a hugely successful classical music career over the last 22 years.  ––However, with only eight stars appearing to be confirmed for the line-up so far, it’s looking like other names will be joining them. Among the others who have been linked to I’m A Celebrity include singer Jessie J, former footballer John Barnes and RuPaul’s Drag Race winner The Vivienne. A spokesperson for the show said that “any names suggested for I’m A Celebrity are just speculation” at this point. This year, the ITV reality show is relocating from the Australian outback to Gwrych Castle in Conwy this year due to coronavirus travel restrictions.  The contestants will still take part in the familiar tasks and trials fans are used to, but will be competing to be crowned the King or Queen of the Castle, rather than the Jungle. Earlier this week, a spokesperson for Gwrych Castle insisted the show would not be affected by the current national lockdown in Wales, which is due to end on 9 November. I’m A Celebrity is expected to launch on ITV in mid-November, although no official date has yet been set. READ MORE: What The Welsh Lockdown Means For This Year's I'm A Celebrity Kim K Sets The Record Straight Over No-Show At Caitlyn Jenner's I'm A Celebrity Exit Ian Wright Says I'm A Celebrity Bosses 'Let Him Down': 'If I Could Take That Time Back I Would'

Illustration by Alex Castro / The Verge Before the pandemic, many companies were already using the videoconferencing app Zoom for business meetings, interviews, and other purposes. These days, many individuals facing long days without contact with friends and family have moved to Zoom for face-to-face and group get-togethers. This is a quick guide for those who haven’t tried Zoom yet or who aren’t yet familiar with its features (or who have used it with friends but want to start initiating their own meetings). It featuring tips on how to get started using the free version. One thing to keep in mind: while one-to-one video calls can go as long as you want, any group calls on Zoom are limited to 40 minutes.

Five Met Police officers are under investigation after Team GB sprinter Bianca Williams and her partner were stopped and searched by police in July. Williams, a European and Commonwealth gold medallist, and Ricardo dos Santos, the Portuguese record holder over 400m, were stopped and handcuffed while with their three-month-old baby in Maida Vale.Following the incident Williams, then 26, told The Times she believed it was “racial profiling”. “It’s always the same thing with Ricardo,” she said. “They think he’s driving a stolen vehicle, or he’s been smoking cannabis.“It’s racial profiling. The way they spoke to Ricardo, like he was scum, dirt on their shoe, was shocking. It was awful to watch.”The Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) said the officers would be investigated for potential breaches of police standards of professional behaviour relating to use of force, duties and responsibilities, and authority, respect and courtesy.The watchdog said the probe would also investigate whether Williams and dos Santos “were treated less favourably because of their race”. Footage of the incident in west London on July 4 was shared widely on Twitter at the time after being posted by former Olympic medallist Linford Christie.Williams made a complaint about the incident on Twitter and the Met made a referral to the IOPC, the watchdog said.IOPC regional director Sal Naseem said: “Having analysed a range of evidence including police body worn, dashcam video and witness statements, we now have a fuller picture of the officers’ interactions with the couple and their child.“As a result, we have taken the decision that this meets the threshold for a misconduct investigation, the allegations will now be investigated thoroughly and independently.“It is important to note that a misconduct investigation does not necessarily mean misconduct proceedings will follow. Decisions on any further action will only be made once our investigation is complete.”In a statement, the Met said the force had voluntary referred itself to the IOPC. “The decision to refer to the IOPC was taken due to the complaint being recorded and the significant public interest in this matter.” The statement continued: “Notices have now been served on those officers informing them they are under investigation. The serving of notices does not necessarily mean misconduct proceedings will follow.“The officers involved are from the Territorial Support Group. No officer is suspended or subject to restricted duties.“The MPS continues to fully co-operate with the IOPC investigation.” Related...

Virtuix Virtual reality startup Virtuix is building a VR treadmill for your home. The Omni One is an elaborate full-body controller that lets you physically run, jump, and crouch in place. Following an earlier business- and arcade-focused device, it’s supposed to ship in mid-2021 for $1,995, and Virtuix is announcing the product with a crowdfunding investment campaign. The crowdfunded Virtuix Omni started development in 2013. It’s not a traditional treadmill — it’s a low-friction platform that’s used with special low-friction shows or shoe covers and a harness. (You may remember the overall VR treadmill concept from Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One.) As an Omni One prototype video demonstrates, the device basically holds you in place while...

Instagram launched ten years ago today: the photo-sharing app first hit the App Store on October 6th, 2010, a few months after the release of the iPhone 4. To celebrate, Instagram has added an easter egg to the app that lets you change its home screen icon. The icons available include the classic Polaroid-style camera designs that were used for more than five years. There are themed variations on the current logo, too, including Pride rainbow colors and monochrome options. The app update also includes another feature: a private map and archive of your stories from the past three years. To access the new icons, go to the settings within the app and do a long swipe down on the screen to reveal some emoji. Once you’ve swiped down far... Continue reading…
