Katherine Ryan wants fans to uncancel Slowthai after he harassed her on stage at last year’s NME Awards, confessing she was worried about him amid the backlash he received.

The comedian has no beef with the Doorman rapper, 26, who later kicked off at audience members and was escorted away.

Slowthai has apologised unreservedly for his ‘inexcusable behaviour’ after making sexual remarks to Ryan, 37, at the bash attended by Taylor Swift.

But the Canadian comic, who was hosting the event, likened their exchange to pantomime.

‘People are quick to judge a situation they didn’t see first-hand,’ she said.

‘When we take little clips of something and put them on the internet, it can easily be taken out of context.’

She added: ‘I really admire Slowthai and think that situation was missing a lot of nuances once it got on social media.

‘I was in a performative position where I was almost playing a character of myself. I was being a stand-up comedian. He was in a performative position where he was being a rock star.

‘It was like a pantomime and it’s very different if that interaction had taken place at a bus stop. It’s a show. It’s all about the comedy of that night, and I think people took it the wrong way.’

Fearful for the rising star over the scale of the backlash, she said: ‘I was concerned to see the level of vitriol directed towards him.

‘That’s why I did everything I could to calm the situation because it was ridiculous. There’s a culture looking to expose everyone right now and that’s really wrong.’

Slowthai has released a new track, fittingly called Cancelled.

Becks in your arms … Vic’s Valentine treat is so sweet

Loved-up: Posh and Becks share tender moment (Picture: Instagram)

David Beckham proved the honeymoon can last 22 years and counting… as he snuggled up to his wife Victoria like it was a first date.

Beaming in a Valentine’s Day selfie, Becks dubbed fashionista Posh the ‘most inspiring’ wife and ‘amazing mummy’ in a sweet caption.

And Victoria looked like she was in heaven. The 46-year-old cuddled up to the former England football captain with her eyes closed while clutching a glass of vino.

For hubby Becks, 45, a display of lifelong commitment could be seen in the image — he has the ex-Spice Girl’s name inked on his hand.

The pair are enjoying being back together after Becks last week flew to check out his £11million investment in football club, Inter Miami.

Meanwhile, a drink and a cuddle was exactly what Posh needed after a busy few days of presenting her fashion week collection remotely.

As well as being smitten with David, who she dubbed the ‘best husband’, she had previously gushed about the plonk, saying: ‘I tell myself that’s it’s really good to drink red wine.’

Impressing Anais will cost you a packet

Anais Gallagher doesn’t mind biting the hand that feeds her — particularly if it’s holding a packet of pickled onion Monster Munch.

Sharing a list of her likes and dislikes, the 21 year-old daughter of rocker Noel tweeted: ‘Don’t enjoy people tweeting me Oasis lyrics.’

But after keeping her dad’s fans at bay with the post, she confessed: ‘Do enjoy pickled onion Monster Munch.’

The model has recently moved into her own flat. She had been living with her boyfriend, 26-year-old chef Julius Roberts, at his family’s farm in Devon.

Why James was so late late to dieting

Weight is over: James has lost 16lb (Picture: Getty)

James Corden was afraid to go on a diet because it’s ‘not very sexy’.

The Late Late Show host, 42, joined WW — previously Weight Watchers — at the start of the year and explained why he had been reluctant to do it for so long.

‘As a man, to say that you’re on a diet… it’s not very manly to want to make changes in your own health somehow. Because men drink beer, we go out and it doesn’t matter what you look like,’ he told Oprah Winfrey at the WW Your Life in Focus virtual event. ‘I actually think it is the single most positive, sexy thing you can do to say, “I would like to be a bit healthier for my family, for my children.”’

James also praised his wife Julia Carey — mum to son Max, nine, and daughters Carey, six, and Charlotte, three ‑ for supporting him on his weight-loss journey.

‘My wife has been incredible … amazing,’ he said.

‘I’m on the start of a journey that I’m determined to finish. I’ve lost 16lb in five weeks… and I’ve been doing some exercise, which I hate. I can’t bear it. But my wife is so good at it.’

Bridgerton star Regé-Jean Page is to join the showbiz aristocracy by hosting Saturday Night Live.

The 31-year-old — who plays Simon Bassett, the Duke of Hastings, in Netflix’s most-streamed drama ever — will present the legendary US comedy show this Saturday.

Insiders say he will parody his raunchy role as a dashing bachelor, committed to avoiding marriage until he meets his match. Rapper Bad Bunny will be the musical guest in the NBC comedy show.

Page follows in the footsteps of A-listers Robert DeNiro, Chris Rock, J-Lo and Eddie Murphy as a host of the show.

Bridgerton will return for a second series, Netflix has confirmed.

Escape to the Chateau’s Dick Strawbridge opens up on pain of ‘leaving’ with Angel

Dick Strawbridge has spoken out about how he would feel if he had to move on from the chateau he lives in with wife Angel Adoree.

The 61-year-old has enjoyed a fulsome French adventure since snapping up the castle in 2015 and sharing its subsequent renovation with Channel 4's hit show, Escape to the Château.

He has said that the thought of giving up the property after five years of toil, gives him a "headache" and the father-of-two said he couldn't consider a future away from the chateau.

Dick and Angel, 42, have shared their ups and downs of turning the rundown property into a hospitality hotspot and a fantastic place to live.

Dick continued: “Arthur and Dorothy have plans. Arthur wants the orangery as his restaurant.”

Angel said: “He's a real gourmand and has even started his own branding,” adding their daughter has her eyes on something else.

“Dorothy wants one of the outbuildings, which will be very modern and contemporary. I'm allowed to babysit the two children she's going to have.”

Bindi Irwin disables comments on Instagram after relentless trolling

Bindi Irwin is due to give birth next month.

And after relentless attacks by online trolls during her pregnancy, she appears to have sent a strong message to the keyboard warriors.

In an attempt to stop the negativity, the 22-year-old wildlife warrior has disabled all comments on her recent Instagram uploads.

Taking a stand: Bindi Irwin (pictured with her husband, Chandler Powell) has disabled comments on her Instagram account after relentless attacks from trolls during her pregnancy 

Bindi has been criticised by trolls on several occasions in the past few months.

From a maternity shoot in tribute to her late father to bringing her family along for her babymoon in Uluru, some people only had nasty opinions to share.

Bindi turned off all comments shortly after the babymoon backlash, and on Sunday sent a cryptic message to her haters in a Valentine’s Day post.

While posing with her husband, Chandler Powell, 24, the writing on the wall behind them read: ‘Let’s give them something to taco ’bout.’

Criticism: Last month, Bindi was slammed for recreating a maternity shoot inspired by a photo of her parents taken 17 years ago 

Tribute: The conservationist shared a photo to Instagram of Chandler kissing her bare baby bump, alongside this comparison image of her late father, Steve Irwin, doing the same when Terri was pregnant with Bindi’s brother, Robert

Last month, Bindi was slammed for recreating a maternity shoot inspired by a photo of her parents taken 17 years ago.

The conservationist shared a photo to Instagram of Chandler kissing her bare baby bump, alongside a comparison image of her late father, Steve Irwin, doing the same when Terri was pregnant with Bindi’s brother, Robert.

The comments section was flooded with critics describing the shoot as ‘creepy’ and ‘wrong’.

‘Not babymoon if all family along’: Earlier this month, Bindi and Chandler were slammed again for inviting her family on their last holiday before having a child – known as a babymoon – in Uluru. Trolls suggested that it was inappropriate for Terri, 56, and Robert, 17, to be there

Earlier this month, Bindi and Chandler were slammed again for inviting her family on their last holiday before having a child – known as a babymoon – in Uluru.

Trolls suggested that it was inappropriate for Terri, 56, and Robert, 17, to be there.

They claimed the family were missing the point of a ‘babymoon’, which is supposed to be about a couple enjoying quality time together before parenting takes over.

‘How frigging ridiculous is this, isn’t a babymoon special time for the parents to be,’ commented one person, while another wrote: ‘Not babymoon if all family along.’

Bindi and Chandler enjoy a close relationship with her family, and they all live and work together at Australia Zoo, on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast.
