Harry and Meghan’s Netflix plans ruined by Queen’s sudden diary change, expert claims
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Netflix plans have been hampered by the Queen’s late decision not to attend a thanksgiving service at St Pauls, a royal biographer has claimed.After a successful Trooping the Colour ceremony, where she took in a flypast of military jets, Buckingham Palace announced that the Queen would not be attending today’s (June 3) Thanksgiving service at St Pauls.Harry and Meghan are expected to attend the service after flying in from the US with their children Archie and Lilibet.As anticipated, the couple did not appear on the Buckingham Palace balcony during the Trooping the Colour ceremony, but were snapped behind the scenes talking to royal family members.Now, speaking to Dan Wootton on his GB News show, royal biographer Tom Bower has suggested that the Queen’s cancellation at today’s service may hamper the Sussexes’ publicity plans in their first public appearance of the weekend.“I do think it’s a terrible shame that the Queen can’t go to St Pauls,” he acknowledged.“But it does mean that Netflix can’t get the pan from Meghan to the Queen, that’s cut out now.”The GB news presenter agreed, adding: Can we just be honest about why this couple has come over here?“They’ve had a stark realisation over the past couple of months, haven’t they, that these big American companies are only interested in them because of their proximity to the Royal Family.”Despite being ruled out of the thanksgiving service after suffering “discomfort”, the Queen appeared to enjoy taking in the Trooping the Colour service, and made two balcony appearances in front of the enormous crowds.However it was Prince Louis who enjoyed the show, and the four year-old was spotted by a lip reader chatting excitedly to his

GB News' Dan Wootton Tonight hit with 61 Ofcom complaints after Keir Starmer debate
GB News show Dan Wootton Tonight has been hit with 61 Ofcom complaints following its May 5 episode, in relation to a discussion about Labour leader Keir Starmer's alleged lockdown rule break.A segment was also aired in which Dan shut down Benjamin Butterworth after he spoke about Keir's role in "beergate".Mr Butterworth said: "It was investigated before and they found he hadn’t done anything.”Dan then replied: “It wasn’t investigated, you’ve just given disinformation already.”Dan asked Benjamin if he thinks that Keir followed the rules, to which Benjamin said "yes, absolutely".The GB presenter then asked Benjamin if he himself had read the rules, which Benjamin then confirmed.Wootton then responded: "You can't say it with a straight face."The conversation came just hours after Sir Keir recently said that he will step down if he is "fined" by Durham police over beergate.The Guardian has reported that the Labour party can prove that Sir Keir's team worked past 1am on the night that the scandal was alleged to have taken place.Keir has insisted that no laws were broken and said that they were "followed at all times".The politician claimed that he "simply had something to eat" whilst he was "working late in the evening," which he said "any politician would do days before an election".However, he then said that if the police were to "issue him with a fixed penalty notice," then he would "of course, do the right thing and step down".Controversial journalist Dan Wootton has recently tweeted about GB News' alleged success as the "UK's number one non-state news channel".He told his followers that it was due to "their loyalty over the past year," which has "allowed them to block out the sneery London elite" so the channel can

Coronation Street star Charlie Lawson slams soaps for being 'woke' and 'box-ticking'
Coronation Street star Charlie Lawson has slammed British soaps for 'ticking boxes'. The actor, who portrayed imprisoned Jim McDonald, appeared on GB News alongside former fellow Weatherfield resident Sherrie Hewson and Brookside's Tina Malone.Charlie, 62, was quizzed by broadcast Dan Wootton on "wokeness" and admitted current soaps don't "reflect reality".The actor argued that viewers would "start to switch off" from watching soaps as bosses choose to tick boxes.He admitted to feeling a sense of despair over the constant stream of "new things that you can and can't do".It came as Dan chatted to Charlie and fellow soap stars in the wake of June Brown's death.Charlie raised that many viewers are being extremely tight-lipped about what they want to watch and are afraid of calling soap bosses out.He told GMB's Dan: "We're great at being a silent majority in this b****y country over a great deal of things and I try not to be, to my detriment."There's always new things that you can and can't do and I despair and that goes across society in my humble opinion." He raged: "I hope to god that Corrie and EastEnders or whatever, Emmerdale Farm are around in 10 years but I think people start to switch off because boxes are being ticked with such heavy black ink and I mean that across the whole television industry."There is a silent majority out there who just want to say, excuse my French, they want to say, 'B******s to that, I want to watch what I want to watch'." During his stint on Coronation Street back in the late 90s, Charlie's character became temporarily wheelchair-bound following an altercation with son Steve in 1998.

Caroline Flack's ex-fiancé Andrew Brady jailed after harassing GB News host
Caroline Flack's ex-fiancé Andrew Brady has been jailed for four months after admitting to harassing GB News host Dan Wootton.The former Apprentice star previously admitted to a campaign of harassment against Wootton, with a judge telling him: “This must stop.”Judge Jeremy Richardson QC, sitting at Sheffield Crown Court, said Brady’s claims that Mr Wootton was in some way responsible for Miss Flack’s death were “wholly irrational”, noting that the former executive editor of The Sun was actually a friend of the Love Island presenter, who died in 2020.Judge Richardson told Brady his attacks on Mr Wootton, a MailOnline columnist, had “everything to do with your craving for celebrity status and your irritation that the press were not in the least interested in your somewhat uninteresting life.”Brady, 31, of Cross Bedford Street, Sheffield, admitted harassment at a hearing earlier this week and was on Friday jailed for four months.Judge Richardson noted that, given the time the defendant served on remand, he would be released in the “very near future”.He imposed a 10-year restraining order banning Brady from contacting Mr Wootton, posting anything about him online, or going within 200 yards of his home or workplace.Describing some of the social media posts and messages about Mr Wootton as “utterly outrageous”, Judge Richardson warned Brady he faces a prison sentence measured in years if he breaches the order.Brady admitted at Sheffield Crown Court on Wednesday (February 2) that he had harassed the journalist on social media between February and April in 2021.He branded Wootton a murderer and sex offender in online messages.He had also told the television presenter that he would "settle the matter by violence".Following the
