The audition stages of Britain’s Got Talent 2020 wrapped up last weekend (Saturday, May 30) on ITV. So, why isn’t Britain’s Got Talent on tonight as originally planned? Express.co.uk has everything you need to know.

Why isn’t Britain’s Got Talent?

For the first time in 14 years, Britain’s Got Talent live final will not go ahead as planned.

Usually, after eight weeks of audition stages, the Britain’s Got Talent live semi-finals are head in front of a live studio audience.

The finalists perform live on stage and the audience at home vote for the act they want to see in the final, which is held at the end of six live semi-final shows.

The act that received the highest amount of votes from the public is sent straight through to Sunday’s live final.

The judges – Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, David Walliams and Alesha Dixon – will then have to decide between the next two acts who received the highest number of votes, sending only one through to the final.

Britain’s Got Talent fans would have noticed that the live semi-finals did not go ahead this week and as a result, there is no semi-final tonight (Saturday, June 6) or final tomorrow (Sunday, June 7).

The reason Britain’s Got Talent is not on this week is because the live shows were postponed as a result of the current coronavirus pandemic.

ITV announced in April that the live show’s had been postponed in a statement which read: “We have been working with the brilliant production teams at Thames and Syco to find a way of making the live finals work, which were due to be broadcast at the end of May.

“However, in light of the latest government health guidelines and in line with our priority of safeguarding the well-being of everyone involved in our programmes, production of the live shows cannot go ahead as planned.”

When will Britain’s Got Talent 2020 return?

Unfortunately, a return date for Britain’s Got Talent 2020 has not been confirmed by ITV.

However, there is some good news for fans of the long-running talent series.

Judge Amanda Holden revealed that the judges had been given a provisional return date of Autumn 2020.

Speaking to HuffPost UK, Amanda said: “ “All of the judges have been given a date to hold in early autumn to see if it works live.

“We would never do it without an audience because we’ve always said the British public is the fifth judge. It would be no fun without them!”

“We’ll see what happens, but we are planning to do it this year.”

She added: “Simon has fought very hard for it to be on now, in its normal slot, and it celebrates Britain at its best.

“All our eccentricities, our nuttiness, and being able to laugh at ourselves is how we get through everything – we’ve got to still find the light in the dark.”

Who is through to Britain’s Got Talent 2020 live shows?

The full line up of Britain’s Got Talent 2020 finalists have not been revealed by ITV.

Only the five golden buzzer acts have been confirmed for the live shows.

Queen of the South season four ended with the return of a major character to the USA Network crime series. The cliffhanger has left viewers desperate to know whether the show will be back with another season on Netflix. Here’s everything which has been revealed so far about the future of the show.

Will there be another series of Queen of the South?

WARNING: This article contains spoilers for Queen of the South season 4.

Season four of Queen of the South was released on Netflix last week for fans in the UK to watch the latest episodes of the crime drama.

The new outing followed Teresa Mendoza (played by Alice Braga) as she headed to New Orleans to strengthen her cartel.

The season culminated in a dramatic finale episode, which saw Javier Jimenez (Alfonso Herrera) killed by Judge Lafayette (David Andrews).

Then in a dramatic cliffhanger, James (Peter Gadiot) returned after turning up at a warehouse with a severe abdomen wound.

The finale left many fans desperate to know whether the series would be returning with another outing soon.

There’s good news for viewers of the show as Queen of the South has been renewed for a fifth season.

The announcement came from the USA Network back in August 2019 after it aired originally on the channel.

When will Queen of the South season 5 be released?

So far, every season of the show has been released in June in the US before landing on Netflix months later.

However, the latest series is set to be delayed after filming was shut down back in March.

This was because the outbreak of coronavirus COVID-19 shut down production on the show.

Therefore, it is unclear when the series will be returning to screens as filming has not yet resumed.

When it does return, Rodriguez also confirmed there will be less episodes than usual of the show.

Migraine: How to prevent migraine

A migraine is a moderate or severe headache felt as a throbbing pain on one side of the head. The sensation often causes people to feel sick, and be increasingly sensitive to light and sound. Some have them every day, others only have one every few years. Express.co.uk spoke to Clinical Nutritionist Suzie Sawyer to find out how to beat your migraine.

What are the symptoms of migraine?

Around 190,000 migraine attacks are experienced every single day in England, and nearly six million people suffer from the painful condition in the UK.

Migraine affects women more commonly, with around five to 25 percent of women suffering from the condition compared to two to 10 percent of men.

Every migraine sufferer experiences different attacks, Ms Sawyer said.

She said: “From a severe, throbbing headache, often just affecting one side of the head to pain that can drain down the face or side to side and is frequently joined by nausea, to vomiting and visual disturbances such as flashing lights.”

What causes migraines?

Unfortunately, it is not known for certain what causes a migraine.

Ms Sawyer said: “While the causes of migraine are still largely unknown, this complex condition is certainly not just a vascular headache but more a disorder of the nervous system function which causes inflammatory changes in pain-sensitive parts of the brain.

“This does make treatment options very challenging. And while there is currently no cure for migraine, a better understanding of the condition and its physiology are helping bring much-needed relief for sufferers.”

Read on to find out the top migraine triggers and Ms Sawyer’s top how to calm your headaches down.

Stress

If you are experiencing a migraine for the first time in your life during lockdown, your trigger could be stress.

Ms Sawyer said: “Research shows that stress for many migraine sufferers is a trigger and an identifiable ‘tipping point’.

“It’s no secret that the whole world has been coping with extreme stress over the last few months.

“While we can’t influence lots of what’s going on in the outside world, and indeed within our own lives, there are certainly some really effective herbal helpers to support the body during stressful times and a potential helper for migraine sufferers where stress is the core trigger.

“The herb Rhodiola Rosea, has long been used in traditional herbal remedies.

“Known as an adaptogen (just like ginseng), Rhodiola has a balancing effect on the body, plus helps overcome feelings of anxiety and fatigue, and could prove useful in the battle against migraine.

“Vitano Rhodiola tablets a natural herbal supplement which can help with the temporary relief of symptoms associated with stress such as fatigue and exhaustion.”

Poor diet

We all know what you put into your body will impact your health and your diet plays a role in triggering migraines too.

Ms Sawyer said: “What we eat has a massive effect on overall health, but certain foods or additives used in food processing are known to be problematic to migraine sufferers.”

She went on to reveal a list of foods to limit or completely shun if you are a migraine sufferer.

She said: “For example, aged cheeses contain the amino acid, tyramine.
“Other foods and drinks with amines are red wine, beer, fermented meats, sauerkraut, mushrooms, chocolate, miso, and soy sauce.

“Monosodium glutamate (MSG), generally an ingredient in soy sauce is another known trigger, therefore Chinese foods are a big ‘no-no’.

“Also watch out for caffeine (fizzy drinks often contain caffeine), citrus fruits, cultured dairy products such as kefir and yoghurt, shellfish, and wheat-based foods (wheat is a known allergen).

“Unfortunately, foods containing wheat such as bread, pasta, cereals, cakes and biscuits should be avoided for this reason when trying to identify triggers.”

It may sound as if lots of food groups are out of bounds when battling a migraine, but that is not true.

Ms Sawyer said: “There’s still plenty of delicious, healthy foods to be enjoyed.”

  • Almonds
  • Cashews
  • Broccoli
  • Kale
  • Carrots
  • Apples
  • Beetroot
  • Sweet potatoes
  • Pineapple
  • Watermelon
  • Blueberries

Balanced hormones

Have your migraines crept up on you during a time of hormonal change? This is no coincidence.

Ms Sawyer said: “One of the most common migraine triggers, particularly for women are hormonal fluctuations that naturally occur around puberty, period-time, pregnancy, and menopause.

“Thankfully though, many women do find things improve after the menopause and hormones settle, although that may still be a long time to wait.

“It’s important to recognise that nothing works in isolation within the body and one body system is closely related to another.”

So how do you regulate your hormones?

Ms Sawyer said: “None more so when discussing hormones are those involved with blood sugar balance.

“These relate very closely to sex hormones, sleep, appetite, mood, stress, inflammation and so much more.

“It’s especially important when managing migraine to keep blood sugar levels in good balance.

“This means eating protein at every meal, avoiding stimulants such as caffeine and alcohol and reducing the intake of highly refined sugary foods.

“These often contain sweeteners, another known migraine aggravator.

“Taking a high-quality daily supplement specially formulated for women is worth considering, such as an Alive! multi-vitamin, available in tablet and gummy formats, which contain specific nutrients for hormonal balance.

“Specifically, for men of all ages, Alive! Ultra Men’s Energy Wholefood Plus contains high levels of stress-busting B-vitamins as well as calming magnesium.”

Environmental factors

Certain environmental factors such as sunlight, bright lights and ones that flicker and flash can bring on a migraine attack.

Intense penetrating smells of smoke-filled rooms are other triggers.

Strangely, changes in barometric pressure or lots of noise can often affect sufferers.

Ms Sawyer advised: “Clearly, there is little that can be influenced by these factors, other than avoiding certain situations as much as possible.

“If you’re struggling to find the causes (and remembering it may well be multi-factorial) then keep a daily diary noting your routine, weather patterns, food and of course any symptoms.

“And for most women, tracking their menstrual cycle and hormone challenges is just a normal part of daily life!

“We all know the importance of getting plenty of restorative sleep with too many late nights taking their toll on energy levels, mood, eating patterns and how we look and feel generally.

“Clearly, long-haul travel has been severely curtailed over recent months which further disrupts sleep patterns, but events of this year have had a worsening effect on sleep and emotional wellbeing generally.

“For migraine sufferers, this will have only exacerbated the condition.

“Sleep needs to be prioritised with electronic devices turned off at least two hours before bedtime, and a strong bedtime routine put in place. It works for babies!

“Herbal remedies combining Valerian and Passionflower, such as Bonuit Sleep Aid tablets will help you to get to sleep more quickly and also sustain sleep.”

Lack of exercise

If your exercise routine has been knocked down a peg in lockdown, you may be experiencing more migraines.

Ms Sawyer said: “Lack of exercise is a known trigger for migraine attacks but also delivers a wealth of physical and emotional benefits.

“It’s amazing just how refreshing a brisk walk can feel, and it’s a great stress buster too.

“Walking encourages good blood flow around the body and brain.

“Plus, it provides a great opportunity to put on your headphones and listen to a podcast or some of your favourite sounds; all very positive for migraine sufferers.

“Try to get outside for at least an hour, or more, every day.

“There’s no shortage of exercise options with a myriad of classes and programmes being run virtually as well as loads available outdoors.”

Rick Stein: Why TV chef was ‘too tired’ to continue work in kitchens

We will use your email address only for sending you newsletters. Please see our Privacy Notice for details of your data protection rights.

Rick Stein has become something of a mainstay in the homes of countless Britons around the country. The TV chef and broadcasting legend has passed on tips and tricks of the trade from around the world.

His first appearance came on the BBC’s “Floyd on Fish”, 1985, in which Keith Floyd called him “Nick” several times.

Since then Mr Stein has managed to secure a reel of television spin-offs and longer lasting series’.

His TV career has been particularly lucrative, having taken him all around the world.

He’s visited places as far-flung as Japan, as exotic as Mexico – in each country bringing something unique back home to Britain.

Yet, his career in cooking wasn’t always as plain-sailing as it might appear – certainly not taking a traditional route into the culinary world.

Mr Stein flunked school and found himself on a trip to Australia shortly after his father’s death, as a 19-year-old.

Working as a labourer in an abattoir, and later a clerk in a naval dockyard, Mr Stein likely never had a career as a TV chef in mind.

After taking time out to travel in New Zealand, Mr Stein returned to the UK.

Here, a successful application to Oxford saw him gain a degree in English.

After graduation, he converted a mobile disco into a quayside nightclub.

It was here that the club became famous for its freeze-dried curries.

But after several skirmishes with the police, the club was shut down.

It did, however, keep its food license, and so continued as a restaurant, subsequently becoming Mr Stein’s first established eatery.

Having gone on to open restaurants around the world, from Cornwall to Australia, Mr Stein revealed during a 2019 interview with You Magazine how working in the fast-paced environment of a kitchen gradually took its toll.

Mr Stein’s now past retirement age but explained how he’s happy to remain in the industry.

However, he admitted: “I suppose I’m lucky.

“I did a lot of time in kitchens, working all hours, but I did get tired in the end, by the time I was 50.

“It was just too busy, too big a kitchen to carry on.”

Establishing such a rich career in a particular field inevitably opens up several paths to relationships and friendships with those you work with.

Through filming around the world, Mr Stein became close friends with the director David Pritchard.

The pair worked together on several of Mr Stein’s food shows, and, earlier on duriing the interview, Mr Stein revealed how despite their close friendship, the two disagreed on the divisive Brexit.

While Mr Stein’s series exploring food in France was in production, David died from cancer.

Mr Stein explained: “We all knew that he was going to die.

“We just wanted to make this series as nostalgia for a country that we both loved.

“I’ve filmed in France with David ever since we began making TV together 30 years ago and I wanted to share it with him.

“Funnily enough David voted to leave the European Union -and, I voted to stay.”

Is Parkhurst College real?

Blood and Water’s prestigious Parkhurst College is a fictitious institution created for the series.

While there is an area called Parkhurst, there’s only a primary school located in this region.

In the series, Parkhurst only admits students who come from money and sees its pupils donning uniform of gold and burgundy which adds another layer of exclusivity.

Parkhurst College appears to be a character in itself as well as a setting where viewers will see some of the biggest scenes taking place.

Where is Blood and Water filmed?

Blood and Water was filmed in its native Cape Town with the shoot commencing in June 2019.

At the time, Netflix shared some images from the Blood and Water table read as the cast and crew gathered to go through the scripts.

A tweet from the streaming service read: “Exciting news! “Blood and Water,” @NetflixSA ‘s 2nd original, has started production!!

“Starring a mix of some of South Africa’s young and familiar actors, it will be directed by South Africa’s very own @NosiphoDumisa.”

While South African production company Gambit Films made the show.

Director Dumisa said: “Gambit Films and I are so excited to be working with Netflix on this explosive young-adult drama, with not only a cool look at strong female leads but also a powerful mystery at its core.

“As a director who loves genre, this series combines the best of so many and isn’t shy to delve into the real issues of youth culture, whilst jam-packing it with twists that will keep viewers guessing.”

Netflix executive Kelly Luegenbiehl said: “We are delighted to be investing further in African content and to partner with Nosipho and the team at Gambit Films to bring our second original series from South Africa to Netflix.

Ozark season 4 spoilers: Will cartel hitman Nelson be killed? ‘No one is ever truly safe’

Netflix series Ozark continues to prove popular among fans. The series, which has been compared to the likes of Breaking Bad, sees a middle-class family from Chicago working for a Mexican drug cartel after a business deal goes south. Ozark features plenty of death and violence amid the gritty drama with some unsavoury characters, including assassin Nelson (played by Nelson Bonilla).

WARNING: This article contains spoilers from all seasons of Ozark

Nelson has notched up quite a few names on hit list during his time working as the Navarro Cartel’s resident executioner.

While he may be a man of few words, when it comes to cleaning up for mob boss Felix Navarro (Omar Solis), Nelson gets the job done quickly and efficiently.

Over the past couple of seasons, Nelson has been doing away with more prominent characters including Cade Langmore (Trevor Long), Ben Davis (Tom Pelphrey), Sue Shelby (Marylouise Burke) and Helen Pierce (Janet McTeer).

However, it looks like Nelson’s time could nearly be up as the body count starts to mount with the FBI sniffing around.

  • Ozark theories: Fans convinced Marty knew about season 3 finale death

In an exclusive interview with Express.co.uk, American actor Bonilla shed further light on his cold-blooded alter ego.

The actor, who has also had roles in The Haunting of Hill House and Sacrifice, said: “No one is ever truly safe.

“Death can be around the corner for anyone. It is simply a matter of timing and opportunity.

“I guess you can throw some luck into it as well. I just hope it is epic.”

While all of this is speculation, the dangerous world of Ozark means anyone could meet the reaper and it’s only chance keeping them alive.

Bonilla went on to reflect about how his character may have initially got caught up in the cartel.

He explained: “I have always imagined Omar Navarro courting or recruiting Nelson at a young age.

“Maybe right out of the service where Nelson acquired his skillset for killing.”

The star continued: “There is also a version where Nelson was always Omar’s best and most efficient killer.

“Brainwashing him in a sense of endless and limitless fidelity.”

Nelson’s loyalty to the cartel appears to come above all else and it looks like for now the organisation will be protecting him.

The hitman is only likely to be killed off if he betrays Navarro in some way but at this stage, it seems unlikely.

Nevertheless, there are other characters who could come after him such as Ruth Langmore (Julia Garner), Erin Pierce (Madison Thompson) and Jonah Byrde (Skylar Gaertner).

So, Nelson will be watching his back from now on, knowing he’s increasingly becoming a target with each job he completes.

Nelson is a highly proficient killer, so even if someone did come after him, he’d give a good fight.

Sadly, Netflix has yet to confirm season four but as the show dropped a couple of months ago, it might be a while yet before viewers get any news.

Nostradamus 2020: What did Nostradamus say about 2020? Did he predict coronavirus?

Nostradamus is the 16th-century apothecary and writer, who many believe could accurately predict the future. The French mystic is often credited with predicting the outbreak of World War 2 as well as the assassination of John F Kennedy in 1963. Nostradamus’ followers base their bizarre claims on his 1555 book Les Propheties.

The tome is a collection of cryptic passages, known as quatrains, that rarely mention specific details, locations or people.

Conspiracy theorists are, however, certain the poetic quatrains can be deciphered to revealed clues about the future.

So what did Nostradamus have to about the year 2020?

And did the supposed seer have anything to say about the ongoing coronavirus pandemic?

  • 5G conspiracy theorists hiding razor blades behind protest posters

Nostradamus predictions for 2020:

Throughout his quatrains, the French mystic strayed from naming specific dates or years.

Instead, any prophecy credited to Nostradamus is a personal and biased interpretation of a very vague and cryptic piece of writing.

However, Nostradamus’ followers have claimed he correctly predicted the Great Fire of London in 1666 and the death of King Henry II of France in 1559.

According to the website CuriousCosmos.com, Nostradamus warned the world of great earthquakes in North America in 2020.

Nostradamus also supposedly predicted a geological disaster that will strike the “New World”.

Nostradamus’ writings are exploited in a number of fallacious ways

On top of natural cataclysms, an economic crisis was also supposedly predicted for 2020.

One person on Twitter said: “Nostradamus predicted that there will be an outbreak of third world war in 2020.”

Another person said: “Nostradamus had a lot to say about 2020.”

One person said: “Nostradamus mentioned the Coronavirus in his prophecies 465 years ago.

“Nostradamus wrote in his book at 2:53 that in the year 2020, a city bordering the sea of East Asia would have an epidemic that would bring about a great tragedy in human history.”

Another person said on Twitter: “I know people don’t believe the prediction of Nostradamus, Edgar Casey, etc.

“But, all of them predicted a plague that would wipe out one to two thirds of the world population.

“I’m sorry to say I truly believe this may be it, the twin year 2020.”

Nostradamus’ naysayers, however, do not believe the French physician ever made any real predictions of the future.

Brian Dunning, host of the Skeptoid podcast, debunked Nostradamus’ prophecies on his show.

He said: “Nostradamus’ writings are exploited in a number of fallacious ways.

“Ambiguous and wrong translations, ‘creative’ interpretations, hoax writings, fictional accounts, and the breaking of non-existent codes within his quatrains all contribute to a vast body of work, all of it wrong, and many times the size of everything Nostradamus ever actually wrote.”

Beverley Callard: Why is she leaving Coronation Street? How will she leave?

Coronation Street has been on screens since 1960 and is celebrating its 60th birthday this year. The ITV soap has seen many characters gracing the cobbles over the years. Among the faces turning up in Weatherfield is Liz McDonald (played by Beverly Callard). The barmaid at the Rovers Return has been on the soap since 1989 but now she’s making an exit after 30 years. The actress is appearing on Through The Keyhole tonight (Saturday, May 9) and some may be wondering about her departure.

Why is Beverly Callard leaving Coronation Street?

Actress Callard is said to have had some sleepless nights before she made the decision to walk away from Coronation Street.

The news of Callard quitting the long-running series broke in November last year and it seems it was not a decision the star made lightly.

But Callard appears to want to take on some new roles and projects.

She told OK! Magazine at the time: “There’s very little work in our industry for women over 50, but I’m 62 and recently I was doing three jobs at once.

“It made me realise how I was privileged to have the opportunity to do so when so many women my age no longer get the chance.”

She continued: “I’m sick of ageism in the industry.

“Although I’ve had to leave the safety net of being in Coronation Street to do this, I’m hoping that ageist bosses, of which there are many, take note of how successful this show is and it starts the ball rolling on helping other women my age, get the roles they still deserve.”

How will Beverley Callard leave Coronation Street as Liz McDonald?

More recently, she revealed to The Mirror she has “no idea what will happen”.

Callard said: “The only thing I’ve been guaranteed is that Liz is not going to die. It would be really good if she found love and happiness, but I can’t see that happening.”

She added: “I’ll miss the failed romances and the feuds, but not the fashion. On my last day I’ll set fire to Liz’s wardrobe.”

However, there have been hints about an explosive exit with the star promising Liz will leave with “one hell of a bang”.

She also said she’d been “in shock” and was “numb” after making the move to depart for pastures new.

Corrie fans will see Liz getting a good send-off in soap style and with the character not leaving in a coffin, there’s always scope for her to return in the future.

The actress was due to film her final scenes on the cobbles in July, however, this has now been thrown into uncertainty due to the coronavirus outbreak.

ITV recently confirmed filmed had been halted on both Coronation Street and Emmerdale due to the COVID-19 pandemic sweeping the world.

“However, the health and well-being of the production teams, actors, crew and their families is of paramount importance to us and we now feel that the time has come to stop filming.

“We’d like to thank our viewers for their support and hope they continue to enjoy both soaps in the coming months.”

“The Yorkshire based soap will air on Monday, Wednesday and Friday with Coronation Street airing at 7.30pm on the same nights.

“The change to Emmerdale’s transmission pattern will ensure we have episodes of both soaps airing on ITV until at least the early summer.”

Right now, it’s unclear when filming is going to recommence on the soap and so, it could be a while before fans have to say good by to Liz for good.

Coronation Street continues on ITV next Monday at 7.30pm

Too Hot to Handle: Fans stunned as Lydia undergoes STI test in unearthed TV clip

Lydia Clyma was just one of several sexually frustrated singles who were challenged by Netflix to mingle in a tropical paradise without up close and personal. As fans scoured online for more info on Too Hot To Handle’s hottest stars, a cringe-inducing clip was recently unearthed.

Before Lydia set heartbeats racing during her appearances on Netflix’s latest reality show, fans discovered she also made an appearance on Channel 4’s Naked Stories.

The former ring girl, originally from Portsmouth but now living in London, also appeared in holiday bonanza Ibiza Weekender.

Naked Stories is infamous for delving deep into the more unpleasant aspects of hookups and casual sex, including taking viewers step-by-step through a test for Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI).

During a recent episode, the Too Hot to Handle star paid a visit to nurse Sarah Mulindwa to raise some concerns about a recent sexual partner.

Before the exam, Lydia said: ‘I think the last person I had sex with probably [got] around, so there’s obviously always a high possibility.”

Although the visit raised some important concerns regarding sexual health, viewers cringed at the intimate procedures taken during a standard STI test.

After admitting to having anal sex without protection, nurse Sarah performs a rectal swab on television in full view of recoiling viewers.

In the middle of her test, Lydia joked: “They can’t put it back in the front once it’s been in the back.”

Throughout her visit, Lydia also made some surprising confessions regarding her own sex life, namely an aversion to contraceptive.

She told Sarah: “I feel it’s a guy thing to remember. If I’m taking contraception, that’s their part of the deal.”

When the fans discovered the clip of the reality star on YouTube, they took to the comments to chat about the merits and fallbacks of casual dating.

One fan was quick to judge and said: “I don’t understand these people, sleeping around with multiple people and no protection.”

Though another argued: “The comments are sad coming from sad people. I’m here because of that Netflix show and was curious about her past appearances. Hella judgemental up in this b****!”

Thankfully, Lydia came back clear of all STIs by the end of the exams.

However, the unearthed clip released in November 2019 took the opportunity to remind young people of the risk of STIs, encouraging those who are sexually active to get tested when possible.

Alongside the clip, Naked Stories’ YouTube page commented: “According to the latest statistics from Public Health England, an STI is diagnosed every 4 minutes in England and across all STIs, the highest rates of diagnoses are found in young people aged 16 to 24.”
