Ready to stretch! Jorgie Porter dresses down in baggy jumper and printed leggings as she joins Hollyoaks co-star Gemma Merna for a yoga session
September 2, 2015September 2, 2015
They star in teen soap Hollyoaks together, playing cousins Theresa and Carmel McQueen.
And it appears as if Jorgie Porter and Gemma Merna are just as close off-screen as well with the stars heading to a Happiness yoga session in Liverpool on Tuesday morning.
Turning heads as she passed by, 27-year-old Jorgie dressed her petite frame in purple printed leggings and a slouchy grey jumper.
Toting her belongings in a large silver snakeskin handbag, the pretty star hid behind a stylish pair of reflective shades.
She tied her blonde luscious locks into a high-bun to ensure her hair didn't get in her face during her work out, while her face was made up of muted tones of makeup.
Gemma, 31, covered her amazing figure in slouchy harem-style pants and a plain white blouse, while strolling along in black flip-flops.
The two stars were also joined by Nicole Barber-Lane, who plays McQueen matriarch Myra.
While it was originally thought that Nicole's character had been killed off in 2013, Myra shocked her family - and Hollyoaks viewers - earlier this year when she appeared in a one-off episode and revealed that she had been living in Spain with her daughter Jackie.
Channel 4 later confirmed that the star would return to the show for a much longer stint this Autumn.
Meanwhile, it was recently revealed that Jorgie has set her sights on Hollywood and is hoping to make a name for herself Stateside.
A source told MailOnline: 'Jorgie is taking an extended break again. She often gets itchy feet and loves being in LA.'
But a Hollyoaks spokesperson added: 'Theresa McQueen is currently embroiled in exciting storylines well into next year.
'Theresa and her aunt Myra (Nicole Barber-Lane) do come and go from Hollyoaks village but we do not comment on individual artiste's contracts.'
She announced she'd be leaving the show in October 2013 at the end of her contract and that the door would be left open so she could one day return to the show.
Footballers turn out for relaunch of Bem Brasil in Altrincham
September 2, 2015
City midfielder Fernandinho, United starlet Andreas Pereira and Liverpool stars Philippe Coutinho and Lucas Leiva enjoyed a taste of food from their homeland.
A host of Samba soccer stars met the X Factor at the relaunch of Bem Brasil in Altrincham.
Manchester City midfielder Fernandinho, Manchester United starlet Andreas Pereira, Liverpool FC stars Philippe Coutinho and Lucas Leiva and Stoke City's Dionatan Teixeira enjoyed a taste of food from their homeland Brazil along with ex Reds goalkeeper Tim Howard.
Also attending the relaunch were former X Factor contestant Jake Quickenden, Goldie Cheung and Happy Mondays singer Rowetta.
Scunthorpe-raised Jake, who has a new slot on This Morning discussing the new series of the X Factor, told us that he is loving living in Manchester after moving in with his girlfriend Danielle Fogarty six months ago. And the handsome couple, who met through Danielle's famous motorcycle racer Carl after Jake's stint with him in the I'm A Celebrity jungle, were certainly looking smitten over their date at Bem Brasil.
Jake said: "I love Manchester. There is always something to do here.
"There are always new restaurants opening and up-and-coming places to go."
The footballers were invited by their friends, Bem Brasil general manager Marcos Magalhaes and his father Kleber Giovane Magalhaes, owner of the eateries celebrating the cuisine of the South American country.
The restaurants have become a popular spot for the Premier League's South American and Brazilian players.
The Altrincham relaunch, with a revamped larger buffet and bigger choice of meats, also got the thumbs-up from Rowetta, who said: "I love Brazilian food and I am over the moon with my meal.
"We played Rock In Rio in Brazil and we loved it there."
Danielle Fogarty displays her slim figure in skintight white jeans as she and Jake Quickenden enjoy a Brazilian date night
September 2, 2015
They recently put their romance under the spotlight in reality show Seven Days With..., last month.
And the experience seem to have only solidified Jake Quickenden and Danielle Fogarty's relationship, as the loved-up couple were spotted enjoying a quirky date night at Bem Brasil, in Altrincham, Cheshire on Thursday.
The young couple looked the picture of happiness as they cuddled up to each other while leaving the barbecue restaurant after grabbing a bite to eat.
Former X Factor contestant Jake, 26, and his pretty girlfriend, 23 - who met during his time on I'm A Celebrity 2014 - couldn't hide their smiles as they enjoyed their Rio-themed date night.
Danielle showed off her slim figure for the occasion, teaming a pair of skintight white ripped jeans with a black semi-sheer top.
The pretty blonde - who is the eldest of former Superbike champion Carl Fogarty's two children - further accentuated her lithe legs by wearing a pair of black strappy wedges to add height to her frame.
Keeping her make-up light and simple with a neutral palette, Danielle showcased her striking features as she wore her golden mane in loose, slightly tousled waves that fell to her shoulders, framing her face.
Former X Factor contestant Jake followed Danielle's lead in the style stakes, wearing an all-black smart-casual ensemble.
Making sure his extensive array of body art was on display, Jake teamed a short-sleeved shirt with a pair of drainpipe jeans and Chelsea boots.
Flashing a glimpse of muscular chest, the brawny reality star wore a cheshire-cat smile as he pulled his girlfriend into a tight embrace while they posed alongside exotic-clad carnival dancers at the eatery.
And ever the gentleman, Jake showed his chivalrous side as he helped Danielle into their waiting car as they left for home.
Jake and Danielle met at a party in December to celebrate the end of I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!, on which Jake finished runner-up to his girlfriend's dad Carl.
And it's been a whirlwind romance for the two, who put their relationship on screen in Seven Days With… last week, with the couple quickly moving in together.
The pair initially kept their blossoming relationship under wraps and Jake admits they were only rumbled when his former campmate started to question why he was constantly hanging around the family home near Blackburn, Lancashire.
The former X Factor finalist revealed he was nervous when Foggy approached him for a chat about his intentions.
But he couldn't have been happier with the warm response and 'lovely things' his co-star said to him.
'Carl said he couldn't ask for a better person to see his daughter', Jake enthused when the couple appeared on This Morning to promote Seven Days With....
Jake Quickenden takes girlfriend for a brazilian (and gets one himself)
September 2, 2015
CHEEKY chappy Jake Quickenden has taken his girlfriend Danielle Fogarty for a brazilian in what must be a standard Friday night out for the couple. But don't worry, everyone's favourite TV hunk hasn't gone all Christian Grey on us just yet.
The happy couple were actually attending the launch of Bem Brasil in Altrincham, Manchester.
Jake and Dani appeared in good spirits as they attended the quirky date night venue – despite the former X Factor star joking his missus takes far too long to get ready.
Taking to Twitter earlier in the night, Jake wrote: "All ready for some food and a few drinks tonight @BemBrasilAlt with @Fogartydanielle ...Who is rushing to get ready," followed by a laughing emoji.
But the extra time was worth it as Carl Fogarty's daughter stunned as she posed for pics with her man.
She even showed her playful side by sharing a snap of her and Jake with some themed dancers along with the caption: "Me and @JakeQuickenden had a Brazilian."
Jake is currently busy promoting his debut E.P I Want You.
The self-funded project is the northern lad's first major attempt to break into the charts.
And it the effort seems to have gone down with fans who rushed to social media to praise the tracks.
One user wrote: "New @JakeQuickenden E.P is out today and it's really good."
While another added: "Come on everyone go and buy @JakeQuickenden EP you need to hear his amazing voice."

Ed’s Hair and Beauty yesterday opened the doors for the first time to their brand new salon in Bramhall.
Ed’s have been offering the hair secret behind the likes of Nicole Richie and Jennifer Aniston, the Brazilian browdry, at their Salford salon since 2011, before deciding to open the doors in Cheshire.
On Monday evening, over 100 people flocked to the opening launch party, complete with Brazilian dancers, blow drys and champagne, to welcome Ed’s to their new Bramhall home.
The Salford salon has seen stars including Manchester United’s RadamelFalcoa, Jennie Mcalpine, Maria Fowler and the Real Housewives of Cheshire heading through the doors to sample the A list treatment that Brazilian owner Ed Mascarenhas specialises in. Ed says “We like to make everyone feel like a celebrity when they arrive at thesalon, our clients love popping in for a blow dry and meeting a Corrie star or top Manchester footballer”!
Originally developed in Brazil, the Brazilian blow dry treatment process transforms the hair by using natural sources of Keratin, which penetrates the hair repairing internal damage, and coats the hair preventing further damage. The results are smooth, silky and straight hair that lasts for months.
Ed’s offers a wide range of salon treatments to customers, includingSchwarskopf and Olaplex a new revolutionary treatment from America.
Health: US fitness guru set to come to Leeds
June 16, 2015June 16, 2015
US Fitness Expert Jessie Pavelka is coming to the UK... and bringing his health revolution with him.
The Star of the Biggest Loser USA and Fat: The Fight of My Life is coming to the UK for 4 dates to hold boot camp and seminar sessions at Village Resorts in Leeds, Newcastle, Watford and Manchester.
Pavelka Health Revolution aims to support and guide people who are looking to lose weight, improve their fitness or live a healthier lifestyle.
Jessie says “There’s nothing better than bringing a bunch of people together in the name of health and fitness.
“It’s the bit I enjoy the most about what I do. I want these bootcamps to cover my four elements of health, which are movement, food, mind power and family.
“We will be getting active, refuelling our bodies with healthy snacks after exercise, learning the importance of feeding the mind and of course, being together is a great boost for all of us.”
Jessie will be touring from June 29 and offering a boot camp session followed by a seminar to provide motivation and personal question and answer sessions.
So far in the UK, Pavelka Health Revolution has worked with a number of men and women to achieve incredible results.
Sharon Jowles from Cheshire has worked with Jessie previously “Jessie and Pavelka Health Revolution have motivated me to lose six stone and I have gained a zest for life that I didn’t know existed. I am looking forwards to continued challenges.”
It seems that Jesse is becoming accustomed to the UK, now also appearing regularly on Good Morning Britain.
Jessie said “It’s exciting to be coming over to the UK and working with Village Hotels to make this happen and I’m looking forward to flying over to my home from home.”
In the UK he has hosted sensitive and inspirational weight loss shows Obese: A Year to Save My Life and Fat: The Fight of My Life for Sky TV.
His warm-up routine includes some simple techniques which can be mastered by almost anyone - things like hip rotations, circling the arms backwards and forwards, moving the head from side to side and jogging on the spot. Other elements of the technique involve cutting our sugar, improving your diet in general and increasing the level of fitness through family activities.
His diet tips again include relatively simple things like eating vegetables (blending them into smoothies if you don’t like the taste), not eating large meals after 8pm, not being afraid to try new healthy foods and keeping hydrated.
Tickets for Jesse’s bootcamps can be bought from Eventbrite.com
Salford joins spinning revolution as Spin Factory studio opens
June 16, 2015
The indoor cycling studio is already proving popular with workers and residents in Salford and Manchester city centres.
It’s the fitness craze that has got gym-goers everywhere in a spin - and now Salford has joined the spinning revolution with its first dedicated indoor cycling studio.
The Spin Factory claims to be the biggest of its kind in Europe, with more than 60 bikes and 70 classes a week.
Located under the railway arches opposite Salford Central station, just a stone’s throw from Spinningfields (where else?), it is already proving popular with city workers and dwellers alike.
Manager and head trainer Ross Sommers said: “Spin is very inconsistent [in gyms] around the standards, facilities, bikes and trainers.
“SoulCycle and pop-up studios are becoming quite popular in the US and in London so we decided to take a few of their concepts and do it in our own way.
“We’ve got the best bikes, the best trainers, a nice atmosphere when you come and train and good music - we’re trying to make it the best experience you can get to make it good value for money.”
Prices start from £4 per class, which can be booked via an app, and there are no contracts or joining fees to pay.
Sessions can torch up to 900 calories as well as improving overall fitness and stamina and toning the legs, glutes and core.
Ross said: “It’s a fantastic way to burn calories. I lost a lot of weight through doing it, I managed to lose a couple of stone in three to three and a half months through just doing spinning four or five times a week and eating well.
“You can burn anything from 400 to 900 calories in an average 30 minute to 45 minute class depending on how hard you push yourself.
“What I like about it is that people of all abilities and ages can do it. It doesn’t require a lot of coordination because you’re only cycling with your feet and it’s not weight-bearing so if you have any injuries in your knees, lower back injuries or any ailments like that, it’s not like hammering a treadmill.”
As well as two spinning rooms, the New Bailey Street facility also includes a Wattbike studio kitted out hi-tech indoor training bikes that can record data to help pro and amateur cyclists to improve their performance on the track or road.
Ross said: “They were designed by British Cycling and the guys who do the rowing machines that you see in the gym.
“They give you a huge amount of data output that you can take home on a USB stick to analyse, which is a whole other level to indoor cycling.”
