Image: Amazon Amazon announced a load of new devices today at its hardware event, as expected. The new Echo Show 10 smart display, shown above, that can follow your movements around the room and Ring’s new Always Home Cam drone are just a sampling.

Not all of them will have released by then, but it’s good to at least keep in mind. We’ll add more links for the Ring products... Continue reading…

Ruth Jones made a surprising discovery about her grandfather’s role in the creation of the NHS during an appearance on Who Do You Think You Are?.The Gavin And Stacey star and co-creator is one of the celebrities taking part in the new series of the hit BBC genealogy show, which sees different famous faces tracing their family history.During filming, Ruth learned that her paternal grandfather had a pivotal role in the Medical Aid Societies in South Wales, which went on to form the basis of what became the National Health Service.She said: “I feel so privileged to have been taken on this spectacular journey into my heritage and to have discovered so much about my ancestors.“I’ve probably been guilty of assuming people from by-gone generations were stuffy, two dimensional and a bit dull. But my trip on Who Do You Think You Are? has proved the opposite to be true.”More details about Ruth’s family will be revealed when the episode airs as part of the new series, which begins on BBC One next month. Other celebrities taking part including Doctor Who star Jodie Whittaker, Britain’s Got Talent judge David Walliams and Liz Carr, best known for her role in Silent Witness.Who Do You Think You Are? has delivered some big bombshells in recent years, but none quite so staggering as EastEnders actor Danny Dyer, who discovered that he is descended from actual royalty. Meanwhile, Ruth has repeatedly shot down rumours that she and James Corden had been working on a new episode of their hit sitcom Gavin And Stacey, following the success of last year’s Christmas special.Most recently, she told Jenni Falconer on Smooth Radio: “We wouldn’t want to come up with something that was substandard. The last thing we want to do is disappoint.”READ MORE: Eamonn Holmes Shares Embarrassing Reason His Who Do You Think You Are?

Tory MP Crispin Blunt has warned ministers its rejection of trans people’s right to self-identify their gender is not backed by MPs. The former minister also told Liz Truss, women and equalities secretary, that her controversial decision has caused “crushing disappointment” and anger in the trans community. Truss confirmed in a ministerial statement on Tuesday that Boris Johnson’s government would not update the Gender Recognition Act and allow trans people to legally change the gender without a medical diagnosis. Amnesty International has described the decision as “extremely worrying” and a string of MPs hit out at Truss in the Commons on Thursday. Truss, however, has said three more clinics will open and that the process will be “kinder and more straightforward” – namely by moving the process online and reducing the £140 fee to a “nominal” amount. Asking an urgent question on the matter, Blunt told MPs: “Does (Truss) understand the crushing disappointment of trans people with the content of her statement on Tuesday when set against the consultation on which it was based?“Does she appreciate that trans people cannot discern any strong or coherent reason for this screeching change of direction?”He added: “Does she understand the anger at the prospect of them receiving their fundamental rights being snatched away? The longer this uncertainty has been allowed to continue, the worse the fear and anger have become. Does she understand the delay in the statement has helped contribute to that?“Does she appreciate that her statement does not command a majority in this House and will she confirm that is one of the reasons she is unable to propose any legislation?“She has presented the House with an inherently unstable settlement that will have to be addressed hopefully sooner rather than later.”Blunt went on to further target Truss, saying Johnson should not have given her the dual roles of trade secretary and equalities secretary. He said: “Her acquisition to the women and equalities brief in 2019 was hardly planned. The prime minister had done her and the nation no favours by continuing to over-burden her after the election at such an extraordinary time for trade.”Shadow women and equalities minister Marsha de Cordova, meanwhile, said: “After three years of toxic debate it is deeply disappointing that this government has let trans people down and dropped its plans to reform the Gender Recognition Act.”Responding to Blunt, Truss said the “settlement we have reached balances the rights and upholds the rights of transgender people and of women”, saying it protects access to single-sex spaces.She added: “I believe that we have come to the right conclusion which is in line with other major nations.” Related...
