Johnny Vegas shares 'rough' update as he attempts to give up smoking in health kick
The card by Tom included the words, “To Dad, Tom.”“Dear Dad well done for stopping smoking. Love Tom”The youngster had also drawn a cigarette which was crossed out with two lines in the middle.Johnny has tried to quit his habit of smoking for well over four years but the father-of-two has constantly found himself reverting to his old ways.Back in 2019, the Benidorm star credited Madonna for helping him quit puffing on dozens of cigarettes a day, insisting that whenever he felt the urge to have a smoke, he’d begin dancing to the singer’s song Lucky Star.In an interview with Daily Star in November that year, Johnny claimed that just 10 seconds of breaking into a boogie to the pop song helped subside his urge for a cigarette."Every time I seriously consider having a cigarette I make myself dance for at least 10 seconds to her Lucky Star hit."It's not a good look for me and does actually help bolster the social embarrassment bit of my brain while it fights its corner against addiction.”Meanwhile, his tweet mentioning being rid of cigarettes for over three weeks was met with a positive reaction from fans who reacted in the comment section of the post.Some people went on to share their own experiences on trying to tackle their former and current habits with tobacco.“Having kids who told you off for smoking in the house worked a treat,” the Twitter user @Bubblesaroo quipped.Another user named @BoppyWalsh17 asserted that reading books helped them overcome their addiction to cigarettes.“When I stopped I really started struggling 3 or 4 weeks in, I read the Allan Carr Easy Way book at that point and it was the turning point,” they said.“The book that changed my life, worth a punt if you are unsteady at any point.

When and where you can stop wearing face masks - as England Covid rules end tomorrow
coronavirus.Covid-19 began spreading rapidly once the new Omicron variant emerged.In early January, cases soared past the 200,000 mark despite Plan B restrictions that were put in place in England.Thankfully, although they are still high, the number of confirmed cases are much lower than they were at the beginning of the year.They are now down to 88,447 as of January 25, up from the previous day's figure of 78,317.Boris Johnson and his Cabinet are hoping this means the variant has now peaked, while some experts feel the changes still present a risk.As a result, restrictions that have affected when we wear a face mask and the way we act in shops, nightclubs and other public places are being lifted.So what are the changes?As the clock ticks down on Plan B restrictions, people can legally stop wearing them in public indoor spaces from Thursday January 27; Plan B expires the day before.The Prime Minister has already announced they no longer had to be worn inside the classroom by secondary school pupils and staff, but now people do not have to wear them in indoor public places if they so choose.People can still wear masks if they want to.Johnson said they now hope to be able to allow Plan B measures to expire and move to 'Plan A' Covid rules.The PM said: "The Cabinet concluded that because of the extraordinary booster campaign together with the way the public have responded to the Plan B measures - we can return to Plan A in England and allow Plan B regulations to expire."This means the end of NHS Covid passes needed for large venues and work-from-home guidance has already been scrapped.Venues can choose to enforce the use of Covid passes on entry to their venue if they wish to do so.People will be able to visit care homes

Emmerdale star was not happy about it either."The Christmas nail are here to stay for another week due to my lovely nail technician having to isolate," she wrote."I'm slightly furious that I can't change them/still loving being Christmassy."It's been quite a start to the new year for Charley, who confirmed her departure from the ITV soap last week.During a Q&A session with fans last week, the Bury-born actress hinted that her reason for stepping away from her role as Debbie was partly to spend more time with her family.After an incredible 19 years on the soap, the mother-of-three indicated that quality time with her children is how she plans to spend her new year."This is always my most asked question but I've never answered it before because I've never wanted to make a big deal of it," she explained on top of a family photo."I left to have Ace 2 years ago," I went back at the end of last year for 10 weeks to complete a storyline."She added: "So, I guess officially it's been a year."Charley had also answered a question from a fan wondering if she's still planning on having more children with her husband, fellow Emmerdale star Matthew Wolfenden.The couple is already parents to sons Buster, 11, Bowie, six, and Ace, three."Are you going to have any more bubbas? Xx," the curious fan asked.Charley responded, expressing that she wasn't done expanding her family just yet, adding that she'd been feeling rather "broody" lately."People say you know when you're done having babies," she expressed."I don't feel that way.

'Oh the tangled web’ Piers Morgan slams Djokovic as photo emerges a day after Covid test
Piers Morgan, 56, reacted to a photograph of Novak Djokovic surrounded by young tennis players which was shared the day after his lawyers claim he tested positive for Covid.The photograph was taken at an awards ceremony in Belgrade, Serbia, and Djokovic can be seen standing with young people who are holding tennis trophies.It is unclear when the event took place, but the photographs were shared by the Tennis Association of Serbia on December 17, as reported by Sky News.Djokovic’s lawyers say he had tested positive for Covid a day earlier.They are reportedly planning to use the test in question to validate Djokovic’s medical exemption which would enable him to enter Australia without being vaccinated.Upon hearing the news, Piers Morgan took to Twitter to jibe at the tennis champion.The journalist wrote: “‘Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive…”The quote comes from author Sir Walter Scott’s nineteenth century poem Marmion.Piers has previously praised Australia for denying Djokovic’s entry into the country.He told his 7.9 million followers: “The #Djokovic saga is not about whether you believe in Covid vaccines, but whether you believe famous sports stars should play by the same rules as everyone else.“He has the right not to be jabbed, and Australia has the right to chuck him out for making a dodgy visa application."The 20-time Grand Slam winner is still being held in a Melbourne detention centre after his visa was cancelled upon arrival into the country.He was told he didn't meet the country's entry requirements due to his vaccine status.Djokovic has not revealed whether he has been vaccinated or not, although he has been critical of mandated vaccines in the past.Court documents released on
