Chris and Kem's pottery challenge gets MESSY!

They’re our favourite Love Island duo, and as Chris and Kem return to our screens for a second helping of their ITV2 show, the boys have been busy facing off against the nation in a string of bizarre challenges.

Speaking ahead of the new series of their ITV2 show You vs Chris and Kem, Kem gave some fighting talk ahead of their challenge, declaring, “We’re unbeaten!”

He added, “We’re too competitive, so if we are against each other, we end up arguing... so this way, for this series, as a team it feels right. But throughout the series we don’t know what we are about to do - we’ll be in the car having a chat and we’ll get a text. Production keep everything quiet from us and we turn up and meet the contributors and it can go from really fun activities to some things really passionate to them… one of them was naked bowls!”

Chris explained, “We went to a naturist resort and we didn’t actually know what a naturist resort was - we thought it was like squirrels, badgers, trees and acorns and stuff like that! But we got there and people were walking around with nothing on and it was a little bit weird but we had to respect that obviously and do a challenge.”

Ruth asked, “So did you get naked?”

Chris replied, “Yeah…”

Alison hunts for her celeb pals in Hollywood

She’s landed in Tinseltown just in time for this year’s Academy Awards. And, as she beds down in LA, Alison Hammond is on the look-out for some of this year’s A-list stars.

But who will she find, as we head out on a tour of Hollywood’s biggest hotspots?

Chris Eubank Jr: 'I’ve learnt a lot from my father!'

Ahead of the big fight on ITV Box Office this Saturday, boxing’s most eccentric family are in the studio.

Chris Eubank and son Junior cruise into the studio to explain why the apple hasn't fallen far from the tree, Junior’s hopes for a family, and why Chris Sr is now Louisiana’s best-dressed police officer!

Making their entrance into the studio in a super sports car ahead of Chris Eubank Jr’s fight against James DeGale, Eamonn declared, “That’s the best entrance we’ve ever had!”

Chris Jr explained his feelings of Saturday’s fight, "I’m fully focused… the cars, the hype and the trash talk - I don’t let it get to me. The car and the lifestyle, that’s just me and my personality, I enjoy things, you only live once. I’ve learnt a lot from my father!”

He added, “With the success I’ve had, people know I’m the real deal and what makes this fight so exciting is we are both on the edge. One of us is going to fall. A loss for either of us will be devastating, it would leave out career in no man’s land - this literally is a fight for our careers.”

Explaining how he feels about his son entering the boxing ring, Chris Snr said, “It’s not about the pain, you’re ready for that, that’s what you prepare for, but I am jittery and shaking because it’s such a big opportunity.”

He added, “Three of my sons are boxing on the bill this Saturday - Nathanael, Sebastian and Junior - and that is historical. Team Eubank.”

Talking of how his career has taken a different route, Chris Snr confessed, “I work in America with the police force, I’m Sergeant there now, and I’m there on average one week of every month and it is fulfilling work. I protect and serve the people. We all must look after each other.”

'My god, Amber Davies comes up with the goods!'
