m Fro Ed... the Hola and a big welcome to the November edition of the Sentinella Axarquia. It’s that time of the year again when we all sit back and wonder where the year has gone, as the shops are being filled with the usual Christmas gifts, foodstuffs, decorations, every other advert on the television is advertising Christmas and there is a general Christmas buzz in the air. I would usually write that the days are becoming colder too, but at the time of writing this particular month, we have been experiencing some mighty fine warm autumn weather with temperatures not dropping much below 200C and rising to 24/250C. But let’s see — a week or so can be a long time on the weather front and hopefully we will, by the time you are reading this, have received some much, much-needed rain. So, it’s time to plan ahead. New Year celebrations in Spain are always so plentiful that it’s difficult to choose what to do, as the Spanish generally spend the lead-up to the New Year at home and celebrate with their families unless they are at a planned event, which means that many bars, clubs and restaurants close perhaps around 6pm-ish and don’t re-open until around 00.30am when the bars and clubs, particularly, become packed full until the wee small hours of New Year’s day morning. This of course is fine if you are Spanish, but I prefer to have a nice meal in a restaurant in the evening and then head to a bar to see the New Year in with some family and friends; after this, I generally plan to be in bed by 2am — whilst the partygoers often keep going MUCH longer, of course! However, as these restaurants are hard to find open, please do your research in advance!

It will feature traditional Andalucian cuisine with signature touches, carefully presented using local high-quality products. The evening

Fishy affair Two fishermen appear to have been caught hook, line and sinker after allegedly putting weights into their catch to try and cheat in a fishing tournament. The world of competitive fishing is reeling over the scandal after footage of the moment the lead balls were found inside the walleye fish went viral online. Jacob Runyan and Chase Cominsky were hoping to win the Lake Erie Walleye Trail tournament in Cleveland, Ohio, and would have walked away with a prize of $30,000 (£26,300). However, they were disqualified and are now being investigated by Ohio's Department of Natural Resources, NBC News reports. If the weights had never been found Runyan and Cominsky would have lifted the trophy for heaviest fish. The anglers have not responded to requests for comment. Swan song A swan in Surrey held up trains after it wandered onto the tracks during the morning rush recently. Trains were delayed for about an hour. The bird was found on the tracks in Staines, Surrey, at about 8am, stopping trains through the area towards Ascot in Berkshire. South Western Railway's Twitter account joked that "our very own Sgt Angel" dealt with the swan - a reference to the 2007 police comedy Hot Fuzz. The film has a scene where Simon Pegg's character Nicholas Angel and his partner chase an escaped swan through the town. Network Rail's Wessex route posted an image on its Twitter account showing the animal being carried in a bag. "If you swan around on the railway, you get The Bag," it said.

Strange News (Continued) Fair play? A championship football match was delayed after it was claimed the goals were two different sizes, sparking calls for an investigation. Cardiff City coaching staff suggested one of the goals was two inches higher than the permitted 8ft ahead of their away clash with Wigan Athletic at the DW Stadium. The game kicked off seven minutes late as Cardiff caretaker manager, Mark Hudson, tried to raise the issue - but agreed the match should go ahead after being told it would take up to two hours to investigate. Cardiff went on to win the match 3-1, with their third goal hitting the underside of the apparent taller crossbar before going in. Hudson said: "A couple of the lads thought there was an issue with the size of the goals. “One of the goals was too high by a couple of inches. "We were initially told we'd have to wait a couple of hours for it to sink another couple of inches, but no one wanted that. "We decided to continue with it, and it was the same for both sides.

Bunny boiler Lidl has been ordered to destroy its chocolate bunnies after it lost a court battle with Lindt. The Swiss firm had argued its gold-wrapped Easter rabbit deserved copyright protection from a similar product sold by the budget supermarket. Switzerland's highest court agreed and overturned a ruling last year by the country's commercial court that had sided with Lidl. It ordered that all the imitation bunnies be destroyed, but suggested the chocolate needn't be wasted and could be melted for use in other products. "Destruction is proportionate, especially as it does not necessarily mean that the chocolate as such would have to be destroyed," it said in a summary of its verdict. It's not the first 'copycat' legal dispute to involve one of the big discount supermarkets, who model many of their own-label products on established rivals. Marks and Spencer came to an agreement with Aldi earlier this year after claiming the Cuthbert cake was too similar to its own Colin the Caterpillar.

The majority is beautiful, sandy beaches, tropical trees and crystal clear waters filled with pristine coral reefs. The Solomon Islands have 173 bird species, 69 of which are endemic and cannot be found anywhere else in the world.

Bonfire Night Remember, remember the fifth of November… but not a lot else about bonfire night? These 10 facts will make sure your knowledge is up to scratch, so that in between the whizzes, pops and bangs you can impress (or annoy) all your friends. 1. The Gunpowder Plot of 1605 was meant to kill the Protestant King, James I. and replace him with a Catholic Queen.

night as a show of respect for their former pupil, Guy Fawkes. 10. The Houses of Parliament are still searched by the Yeoman of the Guards before the state opening (where the reigning Monarch visits parliament each year) held in November. It is ceremonial rather than serious and is performed with lanterns.

2. It was actually Warwickshire-born Robert Catesby who led the Gunpowder Plot, not Guy Fawkes. There were also 13 other people involved. 3. The job Guy Fawkes had in the Gunpowder Plot was to guard the 36 barrels of gunpowder that had been placed in a basement underneath the House Of Lords. 4. The alarm was raised after an anonymous letter was sent to Lord Monteagle, warning him to stay away from the House of Lords. 5. Explosive expert Fawkes, who had been left in a cellar to set off the fuse, was subsequently caught when a group of guards discovered him at the last moment on the 5th November. He was then taken to the Tower of London. 6. As he awaited his grisly punishment on the gallows, Fawkes leapt to his death to avoid the horrors of torture that awaited him. He died from a broken neck. 7. King James I announced that the 5th November should be the day that people always celebrate that the Gunpowder Plot didn’t happen. 8. The cellar that Fawkes and the gunpowder plotters used was damaged in 1834 by fire. When the Palace of Westminster was rebuilt in the 19th century, the infamous cellar was destroyed. 9. St. Peters school in York is the only place in England that does not celebrate bonfire

Brewing Today: Mount Saint Bernard Abbey A monastery can be a single building or, indeed, a collection of buildings that have living quarters and also places to work, for monks or nuns and usually a place for prayer – possibly a chapel or church, for example. Self-sufficient monasteries can include a school, plus agricultural aspects, manufacturing facilities, plus other activities and pursuits, too. Mount Saint Bernard Abbey is located near Coalville, Leicestershire. This Roman Catholic Trappist monastery was established during 1835. The Abbey Church is dedicated to the Greater Glory of God and recorded as being in honour of the Blessed Virgin Mary and Saint Bernard.

brewery, with the production of the beer being carried out by the monks. The labelling for the bottled beer bows to and honours a 12th century Cistercian script, created by Brother Anselm Baker, who was an early monk of the community and an artist of note. The name ‘Tynt Meadow’ reflects and respects connections with the land and monastic life here for nearly 200 years. This full-bodied beer is fermented twice and utilises English barley and hops, plus an English strain of yeast, all to great advantage. The deepish-brown colour has a reddened hue and entices to the gentle aroma, evoking thoughts of dark fruits. I found the beer to be well-balanced, having overtones of chocolate. The very pleasurable mouthfeel continues on, to the palate’s delight, for a memorable finish. For more details, including Tynt Meadow ale stockists, the excellent website has all information.

Mount Saint Bernard Abbey offers many interesting features for visitors, from both the UK and worldwide origins, throughout the year. The Abbey Shop has numerous, most appealing items and products for sale, including a good number of books, with some authored by the monks. Cards, gifts, pictures, pottery and honey (from their own apiary), are all available and more, such as rosaries, chants and music – perhaps something for a special present? Award-winning TYNT MEADOW ENGLISH TRAPPIST ALE (7.4% vol) is a very popular production, by Mount Saint Bernard Abbey. During 2017/18 space was created for a new

My Mature Friends Two elderly women were eating breakfast in a restaurant one morning. Ethel noticed something funny about Mabel's ear and she said, “Mabel, do you know you've got a suppository in your left ear?” Mabel answered, “I have a suppository in my ear?” She pulled it out and stared at it. Then she said, “Ethel, I'm glad you saw this thing. Now I think I know where to find my hearing aid.” ---------------------------------------------An elderly couple were on a cruise and it was really stormy. They were standing on the back of the boat watching the storm, when a wave came up and washed the old man overboard. They searched for days and couldn't find him, so the captain sent the old woman back to shore with the promise that he would notify her as soon as they found something. Three weeks went by and finally the old woman got a fax from the boat. It read: “Ma'am, sorry to inform you, we found your husband dead at the bottom of the ocean. We hauled him up to the deck and attached to his butt was an

oyster and in it was a pearl worth 50,000€, Please advise.” The old woman faxed back: “Send me the pearl and re-bait the trap.” ------------------------------------------------------------A funeral service was being held for a woman who had just passed away. At the end of the service, the pallbearers were carrying the casket out when they accidentally bumped into a wall, jarring the casket. They heard a faint moan. They opened the casket and found that the woman was actually alive! She lived for ten more years, and then died. Once again, a ceremony was held, and at the end of it, the pallbearers were again carrying out the casket. As they carried the casket towards the door, the husband cried out, “Watch that wall!” ------------------------------------------------------------The Senility Prayer Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.

& t i Fru Factstnuts Veg Ches Chestnuts are a part of the fruit group and some individuals classify them as dried fruit. Chestnuts can be eaten raw, roasted, ground into flour, or mixed into pastries. The chestnut is the only nut that contains vitamin C and are much lower in fat than other nuts. They contain twice as much starch as a potato, giving the chestnut tree the nickname “bread tree” in some parts of the world. Just half a cup of raw chestnuts gives you 35 to 45 percent of your daily intake of vitamin C. Chestnuts are a great source of antioxidants, even after cooking. They're rich in gallic acid and ellagic acid, two antioxidants that increase in concentration when cooked.

Chestnuts are gluten-free.

Antioxidants and minerals like magnesium and potassium help reduce your risk of cardiovascular issues, such as heart disease or stroke.

Chestnuts have several properties that may aid weight loss. The high proportion of fibre they contain can help you stay fuller for longer.

The fibre in chestnuts can also help balance your blood sugar.

How to prepare and cook chestnuts They are easy to prepare. You can roast them in the oven on a baking sheet for 20-30 minutes at (200°C). Make sure to pierce the nuts’ skin before roasting to prevent them from exploding in the oven. You can also boil chestnuts in a saucepan of water. Bring the water to boil and then lower the heat and simmer for approximately 30 minutes. Again, make sure to pierce the skin of the chestnuts beforehand. Once the chestnuts are cooked, remove the skin and enjoy them as a delicious snack.

Questions You Just Can’t Answer Why doesn't Tarzan have a beard when he lives in the jungle without a razor?

If the temperature is zero outside today and it's going to be twice as cold tomorrow, how cold will it be?

Why do we press harder on a remote control when we know the batteries are flat? Why do banks charge a fee on 'insufficient funds' when they know there is not enough? Why do Kamikaze pilots wear helmets? Why does someone believe you when you say there are four billion stars, but check when you say the paint is wet? Whose idea was it to put an 'S' in the word 'lisp'? What is the speed of darkness? Why is it that people say they 'slept like a baby' when babies wake up every two hours?

The Rambo Granny Of Melborne, Australia Gun-toting granny Ava Estelle, 81, was so ticked-off when two thugs raped her 18-year-old granddaughter that she tracked the unsuspecting ex-cons down... And shot off their testicles "The old lady spent a week hunting those men down and, when she found them, she took revenge on them in her own special way," said Melbourne police investigator Evan Delp. Then she took a taxi to the nearest police station, laid the gun on the sergeant's desk and told him as calm as could be: "Those b******* will never rape anybody again, by God." Cops say convicted rapist and robber Davis Furth, 33, lost both his penis and his testicles when outraged Ava opened fire with a 9-mm pistol in the hotel room where he and former prison cell mate Stanley Thomas, 29, were holed up. The wrinkled avenger also blew Thomas' testicles to kingdom come, but doctors managed to save his mangled penis, police said. "The one guy, Thomas, didn't lose his manhood, but the doctor I talked to said he won't be using it the way he used to," Detective Delp told reporters. "Both men are still in pretty bad shape, but I think they're just happy to be alive after what they've been through." The Rambo Granny swung into action August 21 after her granddaughter Debbie was carjacked and raped in broad daylight by two knife-wielding creeps in a section of town bordering on skid row.

"When I saw the look on my Debbie's face that night in the hospital, I decided I was going to go out and get those b******** myself 'cause I figured the Law would go easy on them," recalled the retired library worker. "And I wasn't scared of them, either - because I've got me a gun and I've been shootin' all my life. And I wasn't dumb enough to turn it in when the law changed about owning one." So, using a police artist's sketch of the suspects and Debbie's description of the accused, tough-as-nails Ava spent seven days prowling the wino-infested neighbourhood where the crime took place till she spotted the ill-fated rapists entering their flophouse hotel. "I knew it was them the minute I saw 'em, but I shot a picture of 'em anyway and took it back to Debbie and she said sure as hell, it was them," the oldster recalled... "So I went back to that hotel and found their room and knocked on the door, and the minute the big one opened the door, I shot 'em right square between the legs, right where it would really hurt 'em most, you know. Then I went in and shot the other one as he backed up pleading to me to spare him. Then I went down to the police station and turned myself in." Now, baffled lawmen are trying to figure out exactly how to deal with the vigilante granny.. "What she did was wrong, and she broke the law, but it is difficult to throw an 81-year-old woman in prison," Det. Delp said, "especially when 3 million people in the city want to nominate her for Mayor." Super Gran!

himself for being so rude to umpires and assaulting a drinks trolley. He admits taking drugs and messing up his first marriage, to movie star Tatum O’Neal, by being unfaithful. Some elements here have been discussed many times before, particularly John’s rivalry with Swedish star Bjorn Borg, which was the basis for the 2017 movie Borg vs McEnroe in which Shia LaBeouf played the American. But the effect defeating Borg had on McEnroe’s career is fascinating. Reaching the top proved to be the beginning of the end for the racquet-wrecker.

In this thoughtful look back at his life, the former Wimbledon champion tries to figure out why he was a superbrat on the tennis court.

"McEnroe" features some completely unseen archive from some of the biggest matches in tennis history - including the US Open and Wimbledon - as well as home video footage from John himself. Contributions from John's children and his wife Patty Smyth provide a level of intimacy that takes the film beyond a sports biopic and into the realms of something deeply confessional.

While many stars make excuses for their worst behaviour, the direct-speaking New Yorker does not seek to put the blame on his childhood or anyone else. Instead, he berates

This is most definitely a sports documentary to love. Star Rating ****/*****

Thoughts For The Month Gentle thoughts for November

Birds of a feather flock together... and then s*** on your car.

Aging: Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your age and start bragging about it.

A penny saved is... a frickin government oversight. The older you get... the tougher it is to lose weight, because by then your body and your fat have gotten to be really good friends. Did you ever notice: The Roman Numerals for forty (40) are XL.' The easiest way to find something lost around the house is... to buy a replacement. He who hesitates is... probably right. The sole purpose of a child's middle name

Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've travelled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved. When you are dissatisfied and would like to go back to your youth, think of Detention. You know you are getting old when everything either dries up or leaks. One of the many things no one tells you about aging is that it is such a nice change from being young. Ah, being young is beautiful, but being old is comfortable.

The Importance Of Keeping Your Tax Affairs In Order In recent years, the actions of Spain´s Tax Authority (the “AgenciaTributaria” in Spanish, and referred to as “AT” from this point) suggests an increased focus on fighting tax havens, searching for hidden assets and controlling international taxation. One of the common measures the AT has adopted is that of sending warning letters to individuals or companies who own Spanish property/ies. Through the data provided by the tax agencies of other countries, banks and notaries, the AT is able to analyse taxpayers´ behaviour and encourage, facilitate and, if necessary, enforce their compliance. The AT is able to access information on all international bank transfers, and places special emphasis on the largest amounts. With respect to corporation tax and countries where corporation tax is not charged, such countries have a duty to inform the AT where the directors of companies (resident in such countries) reside, and provide information about the transactions such companies carry out. As well as state taxes, it should be noted that there are a series of municipal taxes which must be paid to respective Town Halls, such as IBI, refuse collection tax, vehicle tax etc. Every day, new notifications are received from the AT, to which it is necessary to respond. Failing to respond within the stipulated time frames will lead to fines, regardless of whether the allegations are correct or not. Any replies must generally be accompanied by supporting documentation which will often need to be translated and sometimes legalised. This can all be very

time-consuming and costly. Hence, it is very important to be up to date with the AT and ensure that the AT has correct information and details, whether you are a tax resident in Spain or a non tax resident who owns property in Spain, and whether you are an individual or a company/director of a company with interests in Spain. De Cotta Law has a team of professionals who can advise you on the taxes that must be paid in Spain.

The Importance Of The Tax Form 210 (Annual Deemed Income Tax)... ...FOR NON-RESIDENT PROPERTY OWNERS The Tax Returns that all Non-Resident Property owners should be submitting annually is called, Modelo 210, and the period for submitting this declaration is the calendar year, (i.e. 1st January to 31st December each year). The Annual Deemed Income Tax due for the tax year 2021, must be paid before the 31st December 2022. Many NON-RESIDENT PROPERTY OWNERS have not paid these annual taxes, not because they wish to commit tax fraud, but due to mere ignorance of the existence of this tax. Usually because nobody has ever informed them. Everyone should be aware that ignorance of the Law is not an excuse for not paying this tax, so we recommend any NON-RESIDENT who owns a real estate property in Spain seeks tax advice to make sure they know what their tax obligations in Spain are. The

tax form 210 is operated on a self-assessed system. This means that Non-residents have the obligation to prepare, calculate and pay their own Deemed IncomeTax every year. Nowadays, the Inland Revenue computers can easily check who is not paying these taxes, so it is important to ensure that the annual tax form 210 is paid and submitted on time every year. As this is not an easy process, we recommend that non-resident property owners should get professional assistance to prepare these annual taxes. If you are a NON-RESIDENT PROPERTY OWNER IN SPAIN, you still have plenty of time to comply with this Tax law. It’s better to do it before the Inland Revenue contacts you. Jose M. Garzon Solicitor Head of Axarquia office. mail@axarquiasolicitors.com See main advert opposite

Bang!

Don’t suppose we will hear many firework bangs here in Spain on November 5th, but think of the folks back home on the day and enjoy these historic facts… The earliest documentation of fireworks dates back to 7th century China. They were invented more than 2000 years ago in China. China is the largest manufacturer and exporter of fireworks in the world. 90% of all fireworks originate from here. In 1240 the Arabs acquired knowledge of gunpowder. A Syrian named Hasan al-Rammah wrote of fireworks using terms that suggested he derived his knowledge from Chinese sources.

to be the centre of attention and are showing off to others. It also symbolises enthusiasm and exhilaration. The largest chocolate firework was measuring 3m high and 1.5m in diameter and containing 60kg of Swiss Cailler chocolates. The firework was released in Zurich on New Year's Eve 2002. Fireworks are not fun for animals. Always keep dogs and cats inside the house when fireworks are being let off. Stay calm and make sure where possible you can stay with them. The biggest occasion for fireworks in the UK is Guy Fawkes Night (5th November). It is a celebration of the failing of the Gunpowder Plot on 5 November 1605, an attempt to kill King James I at the Houses of Parliament.

Bang! (Continued) Queen Elizabeth was so fascinated with fireworks that she created an honorary title, "Fire Master of England" for the individual who created the best fireworks.

Italy was the first country to truly master and experiment with fireworks in Europe. They were the first to use shells for firecrackers to be loaded into canons and shot into the air.

The word for firework in Japanese, 'hanabi', which actually means "fire-flower".

Half of all firework injuries are to children under the age of 16.

A rocket can reach speeds of 150mph, however the shell can reach as high as 200 metres. A sparkler burns at a temperature over 15 times the boiling point of water. Three sparklers burning together generate the same heat as a blowtorch. When your sparkler goes out, put it in a bucket of water. France uses fireworks to celebrate Bastille Day and celebrate storming the prison of Bastille.

At first fireworks were only orange and white. In the Middle Ages new colours were achieved by adding different salts. The hardest colour to create is blue. A record breaking 56,000 firework rockets were launched simultaneously in a spectacular opening to the Plymouth, UK Fireworks Championships by Scientist Roy Lowry. The first recorded fireworks in England were at the wedding of King Henry VII in 1486.

Mini Golf In La Herradura La Herradura now has its own minigolf course called Minigolf La Herradura which has been built by an ex-golf trainer, a former member of the PGA of America.

often on vacations over the years. “At 56 years old I decided I had a better chance of scoring well on golf holes measuring four to six metres that 400 to 600 metres.”

The man behind it, Scott Huston, is an American who has lived in several European countries including Germany, Northern Ireland and Denmark. For the last 17 years he has called La Herradura home.

He added, “One thing I’d like to make clear, as this is a very novel concept in Spain, is that mini golf is not a short form of the golf you’d see on TV, but simply putting the ball into a hole through various obstacles. The holes are made of artificial grass as is the racquet sports area and the course is made from existing land with gravel path-ways. No water is required for the entire plot aside for the restrooms.”

Minigolf La Herradura lies between the main road (N340) and Calle Las Palomas 12 where the entrance is, just one street behind the post office. It has 18 holes and covers a good part of the 1,100 sq/m plot - on the rest of it are two petanque lanes and an area for racquet sports such as mini tennis, air badminton and the new fad of “Pickle-ball”. There is also space for restrooms, administrative reception and a store room. When asked how he decided on this project, he said he had played mini golf as a kid and

Scouse Industry Three contractors are bidding to fix a broken wall at 10 Downing Street; one from London, another from Bristol and the third, Liverpool. They go with a government official to examine the wall. The London contractor takes out a tape measure and does some measuring, then works some figures with a pencil. 'Well' he says 'I figure the job will run about £900: £400 for materials, £400 for my crew and £100 profit for me.' The Bristol contractor also does some measuring and figuring, and then says: 'I can do this job for £700: £300 for materials, £300 for my crew and £100 profit for me.' The Liverpool contractor doesn't measure or figure but leans over to the Government official and whispers: "£2,700." The official, incredulous, says: 'You didn't even measure like the other guys! How did you come up with such a high figure?' The Liverpool contractor whispers back: '£1000 for me, £1000 for you, and we hire the guy from Bristol to fix the wall.' 'Done!' replies the government official. And that, my friends, is how it all works!

Building In Andalusia The new planning legislation, the LISTA, which is replacing the slightly stricter LOUA, is currently being settled in the Andalusian government and we will soon hear more details about what is new and what isn’t. However, it appears that it will soon be once again possible to build residential buildings on rustic land. However, the restrictions will be considerable, which in my opinion is important as no one wants to see our beautiful hills and countryside once again covered in new building projects, taking us back to what was happening in the 1990’s and 2000’s. But we must also remember that it is usually always possible to build on urban land and sometimes there are some delightful urban plots offering no problems with planning permission and much lighter restrictions, in beautiful places. A good example is a little treasure of a plot on the edge of the beautiful

village of Canillas de Aceituno, consisting of just over 400m2 of pretty much flat land, and for sale for 59,000 Euros, this is a true example of how it is possible to build a dream home, with a pool, - yes, pools are permitted in most cases on urban land! – without the headaches. This plot could be home to a good sized house, on one level or two, with lovely private gardens, terraces, a pool, a garage, connection to mains drainage, water and electrics, and spectacular views of the sea in the distance, the countryside and the village. On urban land planning permission is also faster to obtain and a lot less expensive in planning fees. For more information on building regulations, we are happy to try to answer any questions you might have. And see the advert below for details of this plot. Toni Waterman, Unspoilt Andalusia

Celebrity tackle FORMER rugby ace Mike Tindall has agreed to be the first royal on prime time reality TV, The Sun has revealed. Mike, 43, who is married to the late Queen Elizabeth’s granddaughter, Zara, will join the line-up in I’m A Celebrity in the bug-infested Australian jungle. He will appear alongside stars including Boy George, comic Sean Walsh and DJ Chris Moyles. Details of Mike’s deal remain a closely-guarded secret, but a source told The Sun: “It’s a massive coup. Mike has had a box seat for some of the most important moments in royal history for generations. “He is sure to be discreet, but his sheer presence means this series will be an absolute must-watch.” Mike, who lifted the 2003 World Cup with England, wed Zara in 2011 and the couple have three children — Mia, eight, Lena, four, and Lucas, one. He has since become a key member of the royal innercircle.

No magic for Ant and Dec Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly have been forced to miss the Britain’s Got Talent magician special due to illness. Stephen Mulhern has agreed to step in and host the programme instead. Among their many work commitments, Ant and Dec are known for hosting Britain’s Got Talent, which has been going for 15 years. However, the duo will miss the upcoming spin-off special Britain’s Got Talent: The Ultimate Magician as well as the National Television Awards. In a statement sent to Metro.co.uk, a spokesperson explained that Ant and Dec have had to put ‘all work commitments’ on hold, after the pair were recently seen in South Africa for the all-stars series of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! They said: ‘Ant and Dec are both unwell and have postponed all work commitments until they recover. The BGT magician-focused special was only announced recently, with an air date yet to be revealed. In 2016, Richard Jones became the first and only magician to ever win Britain’s Got Talent.

During her stint on Doctor Who, Nicola appeared alongside Peter Davison and Colin Baker in their incarnations of the titular role, but neither is implicated in the allegations. The actress, who played Peri Brown on the iconic sci-fi show from 1984 to 1986, claimed she was pestered by TV bosses to 'sleep with them' to secure other acting roles, and it has carried on well into the latter stages of her career. Nicola, who has gone onto star in My Family and Holby City, also admitted that she has turned down acting roles in the past that would require her to have sex with television bosses. Speaking on the My Time Capsule podcast, Nicola explained that such harassment from TV bosses took a huge toll on her mental health. She said: 'It's showbiz lechery, and I think I've had more than my fair share. It leaves me insecure and terrified. 'I've had it in all different shapes and forms. I'm 62; you'd think this nonsense would end but it's still going on.’

Top Gun protection Hollywood A-lister Tom Cruise has claimed he’s been forced to hire heavyweight bodyguards after a string of death threats.

He dodges baddies on the big screen — defying the odds to come out unscathed in Mission: Impossible, Top Gun and more — but in the real world, Tom is taking no chances. The megastar and his director Christopher McQuarrie have brought in heavy-duty bodyguards and security after a disgruntled former employee began an increasingly bitter legal battle over being let go from their productions. Respected movie “bible” Vanity Fair told how the dispute began after a stunt producer was told his services were no longer required, sparking angry protests and fears of further reprisals. “Tom and Chris are still working on Mission: Impossible 8, mostly in the UK, but things have got increasingly unpleasant with a former crew member and now it’s a case of taking no chances,” said a source. “It’s a bit of art imitating life; on set it’s all about heavy protection and threats and now the same thing is going on behind the cameras.”

) : a h a Jokes h The wife has been missing a week now. Police said to prepare for the worst. So I have been to the charity shop to get all her clothes back. ********** Hi mate I don't want you to panic but I'm texting you from casualty. Turns out the new Dyson Ball cleaner isn't what I thought it was. ********** What is a calorie? Calories are the little b******s that get into your wardrobe at night and sew your clothes tighter... MY CLOSET IS INFESTED WITH THE LITTLE SH**S. ********** King Charles decided to take up walking every day. At the same street corner he passed a hooker standing there every day. He learned to brace himself as he approached her for what was almost certain to follow. "One hundred and fifty pounds!" she'd shout. "No! Five pounds!" He said from the side of his mouth, just to shut her up. This ritual between him and the hooker became a daily occurrence. She'd yell, "One hundred and Fifty pounds!" He'd yell back, "Five pounds!" One day, Camilla decided to accompany her husband. As the couple neared the hooker's corner, Charles realised she'd bark her £150 offer and Camilla would wonder what he'd really been doing on all his past outings. He figured he'd better have a good explanation for his wife. As they neared the hooker’s corner he became even more apprehensive than usual. Sure enough, there she stood. He tried to avoid eye contact as she watched the pair pass. Then, the hooker yelled "See what you get for five pounds, you tight b*****d!"

A man had just settled into his seat next to the window on the plane when another man sat down in the aisle seat and put his black Labrador Retriever in the middle seat next to the man. The first man looked very quizzically at the dog and asked why the dog was allowed on the plane. The second man explained that he was from the Police Drugs Enforcement Agency and that the dog was a 'sniffer dog'. 'His name is Sniffer and he's the best there is. I'll show you once we get airborne, when I put him to work.' The plane took off, and once it has levelled out, the Policeman said, 'Watch this.' He told Sniffer to 'search'. Sniffer jumped down, walked along the aisle, and finally sat very purposefully next to a woman for several seconds. Sniffer then returned to his seat and put one paw on the policeman's arm. The Policeman said, 'Good boy', and he turned to the man and said, 'That woman is in possession of marijuana, I'm making a note of her seat number and the authorities will apprehend her when we land. 'Gee, that's pretty good,' replied the first man. Once again, the Policeman sent Sniffer to search the aisles. The Lab sniffed about, sat down beside a man for a few seconds, returned to its seat, and this time he placed two paws on the agent's arm. The Policeman said, 'That man is carrying cocaine, so again, I'm making a note of his seat number for the police.' 'I like it!' said his seat mate. The Policeman then told Sniffer to 'search' again. Sniffer walked up and down the aisles for a little while, sat down for a moment, and then came racing back to the agent, jumped into the middle seat and proceeded to poo all over the place. The first man was really disgusted by this behaviour and couldn't figure out how or why a well-trained dog would behave like that, so he asked the Policeman, 'What's going on ?' The Policeman nervously replied, 'He's just found a bomb.'

Jokes h a ha Sally was driving home from one of her business trips, in Northern Arizona, when she saw an elderly Navajo woman walking on the side of the road. As the trip was a long and quiet one, she stopped the car and asked the Navajo woman if she would like a ride. With a silent nod of thanks, the woman got into the car. Resuming the journey, Sally tried in vain to make a bit of small talk with the Navajo woman. The old woman just sat silently, looking intently at everything she saw, studying every little detail, until she noticed a brown bag on the seat next to Sally. "What in bag?" asked the old woman. Sally looked down at the brown bag and said "It's a bottle of wine. I got it for my husband." The Navajo woman was silent for another moment or two. Then, speaking with the quiet wisdom of an elder, she said "Good trade." ********** A crusty old golfer comes in from a round of golf at a new course and heads into the grill room. As he passes through the swinging doors he sees a sign hanging over the bar: COLD BEER: €2.00 HAMBURGER: €2.25 CHEESEBURGER: €2.50 CHICKEN SANDWICH: €3.50 HAND JOB: €50.00 Checking his wallet to be sure he has the necessary payment, the old golfer walks up to the bar and beckons to the exceptionally attractive female bartender who is serving drinks to a couple of sun-wrinkled golfers. She glides down behind the bar to the old golfer. "Yes?" she inquires with a wide, knowing smile, "May I help you?" The old golfer leans over the bar and whispers, "I was wondering, young lady," he whispers, "Are you the one who gives the hand-jobs?" She looks into his eyes with that wide smile and purrs: "Yes Sir, I sure am." The old golfer leans closer and into her left

ear and says softly, "Well, wash your hands real good, because I want a cheeseburger." ********** Donald and Daisy Duck were spending the night together in a hotel room and Donald wanted to have sex with Daisy. The first thing Daisy asked was, "Do you have a condom?" Donald frowned and said, "No." Daisy told Donald that if he didn't get a condom, they could not have sex. "Maybe they sell them at the front desk," she suggested. So Donald went down to the lobby and asked the hotel clerk if they had condoms. "Yes, we do," the clerk said and pulled a box out from under the counter and gave it to Donald.. "Would you like me to put them on your bill?" "Thit No!" Donald quacked, "I'll thuffocate!" ********** The other night I was invited out for a night with the 'girls. I told my husband that I would be home by midnight, 'I promise!' Well, the hours passed and the Margaritas went down way too easily. Around 3am, a bit loaded, I headed for home. Just as I got in the door, the cuckoo clock in the hallway started up and cuckooed 3 times. Quickly, realising my husband would probably wake up, I cuckooed another 9 times. I was really proud of myself for coming up with such a quick-witted solution, in order to escape a possible conflict with him. The next morning my husband asked me what time I got in, I told him 'MIDNIGHT'... he didn't seem annoyed in the least. Phew, I got away with that one! Then he said 'We need a new cuckoo clock.' When I asked him why, he said, 'Well, last night our clock cuckooed three times, then said 'oh s***.' Cuckooed 4 more times, cleared its throat, cuckooed another three times, giggled, cuckooed twice more, and then tripped over the coffee table and farted.
