😅🤥🤨 NEW Rishi Sunak finally unveiled a fresh cost-of-living bailout today with every household expected to get hundreds of pounds off their sky-rocketing bills. The Chancellor is announcing a new package of help for struggling families after watchdogs warned that the Ukraine crisis means energy costs are set to soar again this Autumn - by more than 40 per cent. He confirmed that the government is performing an extraordinary U-turn on imposing a windfall tax on the surging profits of oil and gas firms, following weeks of wrangling in Cabinet. But he said the levy - which should raise £5billion - will be 'temporary' and there will be big tax breaks for companies that invest. The £200 per household state loan for energy bills - which was due to be paid back over the next four years - is being converted to a permanent grant and doubled to £400 to take the edge off the misery of spiking inflation for 27million homes. Mr Sunak said eight million households on benefits will get £650 lump sum payment, paid in two stages in July and autumn - which will costs the Treasury £5billion. Pensions and disabled people will get £300 payments, and he confirmed that the triple lock will be applied to the state pension this year. Mr Sunak set out the grim scenario with inflation at a 40-year high, and said the government cannot 'solve every problem' but will not allow people to be 'set so far back they might never recover'.
'Why only in America?' Republican Ted Cruz storms off and calls British Sky News journalist a 'propagandist' for asking why school mass shootings only happen in the US during vigil for victims of Texas massacre that left 19 children dead
😅🤥🤨 This is the moment Texas senator Ted Cruz stormed out of an interview after being asked why school mass shootings 'only happen in America' during a vigil for victims of the Robb Elementary School massacre. Cruz had joined Texas Governor Greg Abbott to be with hundreds of tearful relatives and friends mourning loved ones killed in the shooting, which is the worst school massacre since Sandy Hook in 2012. Nineteen children and two of their teachers at Robb Elementary School, Uvalde, Texas, were murdered on Tuesday by 18-year-old Salvador Ramos using two AR-15-style rifles. Ramos had bought the guns and 375 rounds of 5.56mm ammunition legally a week before, just days after his 18th birthday. When asked why American exceptionalism is 'so awful', Cruz said: 'You know, I'm sorry you think American exceptionalism is awful. You've got your political agenda. God love you.'
I've decided to give up being a human and become a collie: Japanese man spends £12,500 on ultra-realistic dog costume so he can live like an animal
😅🤥🤨 A Japanese man says he has fulfilled his life-long ambition of becoming a four-legged animal after spending two-million Yen (£12,500) on a dog costume. The man, who goes by the name of Toko-san, commissioned an agency called Zeppet who spent 40 days making the bespoke Collie outfit. Posting photos of himself in the costume, Toko-san, said: ‘I made it a Collie because it looks real when I put it on. 'I thought that a big animal close to my size would be good - considering that it would be a realistic model, so I decided to make it a dog.'
The airport so chaotic that PILOTS are now ranting to passengers about it: Furious Gatwick customers vent their fury after WizzAir captain lost his temper over the tannoy after 'SEVEN-hour' runway delay
😅🤥🤨 The lengthy delays come as passengers were today stuck in 'apocalyptic queues' across the UK as British Airways cancelled 114 flights at Heathrow, EasyJet grounded nine planes at Gatwick and holidaymakers had to wait 20 hours to board a TUI flight at Exeter. Britons are already facing fears of a summer of cancelled holidays with Passport Office staff battling a backlog of half a million applications and airports struggling to cope with crippling staff shortages. It comes after airports laid off thousands of staff as demand for travel plummeted during the pandemic. But as Covid restrictions were lifted earlier this year, demand has surged and airports have been left frantically trying to recruit new staff.
The smile that was worth 1,000 words: Kate Moss' lit up with 'warmth' at the 'memory' of her romance with Johnny Depp and showed no 'stress' on the stand, body language expert claims
😅🤥🤨 Notoriously-private Moss, 48, put aside her infamous hatred of interviews in order to rush to Depp's aid today in court. She took to the stand and delivered a sensational blow to his ex-wife Heard's case by squashing the actress' claim that Depp once pushed her down the stairs. Body language expert Judi James analyzed the subtle movements in Moss' face, which she said implied that the star has nothing but warm feelings towards her ex. On the other hand, James claimed that Heard's uncomfortable look throughout the testimony suggested that she felt 'denial or irrelevance.' James noted that Moss appeared 'impassive, devoid of any signs of stress or anxiety' - despite previously stating she would get 'ill' before speaking to media. After Depp and Moss split in 1998, she said she cried for 'years,' but now, she couldn't contain her smile at the mere thought of her past love with the star.
The courtroom in the Cotswolds: How Kate Moss gave evidence to Depp trial from inside her 10-bedroom Grade-II listed country pile in Gloucestershire (but little sister Lottie made it famous first!)
😅🤥🤨 From dramatic oil paintings to a stunning garden, Kate Moss's Cotswolds mansion is exactly what you would expect from the supermodel. British-born Kate, 48, today gave bombshell evidence in the Depp v Heard trial from the Grade II listed picturesque property, where she has lived permanently since moving out of London in 2021. Testifying from her Gloucestershire home, she told the court that her ex boyfriend Johnny Depp never kicked, pushed or threw her downstairs while they were on a Jamaica trip. It came after Amber Heard previously told the court that she feared Depp would push her sister down the stairs during a violent argument after he had allegedly done the same to Moss.
Mother reveals how she feeds her family nutritious meals for as little as 29p a head by batch cooking, using a free food app and only using her oven ONCE a week amid cost of living crisis
😅🤥🤨 Dom Richards, 36, an events business manager from Nottinghamshire, who calls herself a 'savvy spender', is able to feed her family-of-five for £35 a week (top right, with her partner Dean and her three children). The mother-of-three explained how she is able to save money by using an app to find free or unused food in the area, only using the oven once-a-week to save on energy bill and carefully meal planning a week in advance (right, her groceries for the week, and left, a cheese and tomato bacon pasta bake with garlic butter baguettes and salad for 29p per person by sourcing most of the ingredients free from Olio, the anti-food waste app)
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle 'WILL join the Queen at St Paul's Thanksgiving service for the biggest Royal gathering since their wedding and Andrew will be there too'
😅🤥🤨 The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will join The Queen at a thanksgiving service at St Paul's Cathedral next week to celebrate her Platinum Jubilee - and Prince Andrew will be there too, it emerged today. The LA-based couple will honour the monarch's seven decades on the throne on Friday, June 3, alongside Her Majesty's children, grandchildren and her older great-grandchildren. It came as Meghan was begged by her estranged half-sister Samantha Markle to stop 'watching and doing nothing' after their father Thomas was rushed to hospital after he suffered a stroke. It scuppers Mr Markle's plans to visit London for the jubilee, where he is said to have wanted to go to Windsor to demand his daughter, Harry and their two children come out to meet him following years of estrangement. Prince Andrew will also make a rare public appearance at St Paul's for the first time since his father Prince Philip's memorial service in March, The Telegraph reports, where he was brought in from the cold to support his mother as she walked in and out of Westminster Abbey. He is said to be visiting his mother daily at Windsor since he settled the multi-million dollar case brought against him by Virginia Roberts Giuffre, one of paedophile Jeffrey Epstein's sex slaves. But the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and the Duke of York will not be joining other royals on the Buckingham Palace balcony at the Trooping the Colour that kicks off the Queen’s platinum jubilee celebrations next Thursday. Only senior serving royals such as Prince Charles, Princess Anne, Prince Edward and Prince William are invited.
Bungling stately home caretaker was fired after he gave away a £5MILLION 460-year-old Tudor artefact to a car salesman in 'dodgy deal'
😅🤥🤨 Brian Wilson was fired from his job at a Grade II listed Seighford Hall in Stafford, Staffordshire, after bosses found he had let car salesman Andrew Potter walk off with the 460-year-old antique. Mr Potter took a nine feet wide oak overmantel (pictured) - an ornamental structure above a mantelpiece - from the 16th century mansion and it was later valued as being worth a staggering £5million by auctioneers. When Mr Potter tried to sell the artefact the local council took out an injuction to stop him, and although this was later dropped, he has since been unable to sell it. He is currently in the process of trying to find a buyer in the Middle East, according to a local auction house. Claiming unfair dismissal from his job, Mr Wilson told an employment tribunal the wooden item was 'rotten', had been set aside to be burned and that giving it away would save him the time of disposing of it. He was found to have been unfairly dismissed by a judge, although she said his behaviour had been 'blameworthy'.

The front end of the vehicle, which goes from 0-124mph in 6.7 seconds, was left a crumpled mess while bits of the car can also be seen strewn over the road. Nobody is believed to have been injured in the collision which happened at around 7.40pm.

The boy and four others hid under a cloth-covered table as Ramos fired shots. He also recalled watching his teachers, both of whom were killed in the massacre, go 'in front of my classmates to help'. Police say Ramos' motive for attacking Robb Elementary in Uvalde is unknown. Some law enforcement sources allege he had gotten in a fight with his grandma ahead of the killing spree but it is unclear if the argument provoked the attack. Ramos had no criminal history or known mental illnesses.

Two more Tory MPs break cover to call for Boris to quit over Partygate as ministers try to shrug off backlash saying he 'got the big calls right' - while Met chief faces grilling on reasons for handing out fines
😅🤥🤨 Backbencher John Baron said the Sue Gray report showed a 'shameful pattern of misbehaviour', suggesting the PM had 'knowingly misled' Parliament. Meanwhile, David Simmonds - whose Ruislip, Northwood and Pinner seat neighbours Mr Johnson's own - said he no longer had the confidence of the public and should step down. The intervention came as No10 chief of staff Steve Barclay insisted the PM is 'honourable' despite the grim picture of staff boozing, fighting and vomiting in offices while the rest of the country was in a brutal lockdown . He appealed for MPs to move on, saying Mr Johnson is focused on the Ukraine war and cost-of-living crisis.

The nine lions were facing starvation at their home in the Biopark, Odesa, where supplies of meat were running dangerously low because of the war. If Russian missiles damaged the animal enclosures, civilians would be in serious danger from the loose predators. The group travelled thousands of miles across three borders over 72 hours to carry out the rescue.

Lucky was taken into a veterinary shelter supported by Humane Society International who take in dogs rescued from the Chinese meat trade. Footage taken by the charity also shows the horrific inhumane conditions where dogs are caged prior to being slaughtered.

😅🤥🤨 The pomp and pageantry of the 1937 Coronation Review of the Fleet saw 300 warships from Britain and other nations gathering at Spithead in Portsmouth before the King and Queen, as searchlights (top right) bathed the sky and floodlights lit up the vessels (bottom right). But the review is not remembered for the incredible tribute to the new King (inset). Instead it was the drunken radio broadcast of BBC commentator Thomas Woodrooffe (left) that Britons who tuned in around the country on the evening of May 20 were treated to. The infamous moment saw Lieutenant-Commander Woodrooffe drunkenly ramble for nearly four minutes before he was faded out by BBC colleagues. Lieutenant-Commander Woodrooffe, who had been set to spend 15 minutes commentating on the scene as the King inspected the Navy, instead told listeners: 'We have forgotten the Royal Review, we have forgotten the Royal Review, the whole thing is lit up by fairy lamps.' He went on to repeat several times that the fleet was 'lit up', before adding: 'We had a hundred, two hundred warships around us a second ago, and now they've gone, at a signal by the Morse code, at a signal by the fleet flagship which I'm in now, they've gone, they've disappeared.'

Researchers also found the teaching assistant's late parents and four full siblings - who were shocked to discover they had another sister. They explained that their mother suffered with depression following the death of two of her children in infancy, as well as many miscarriages. Meanwhile, their father was diagnosed with schizophrenia around the time of Niki's birth. It was suggested that because of these struggles, Niki's birth mother decided to abandon her daughter where she could be found. In emotional scenes that aired last night, the siblings were seen meeting one another for the first time.

King-size talent with the moves to bring Elvis to life: Young star - and a dastardly Tom Hanks - make this biopic a spectacle, writes BRIAN VINER
😅🤥🤨 BRIAN VINER: Blue suede shoes trod the red nylon carpet last night as an enthusiastic audience at the Cannes Film Festival arrived to see the premiere of Baz Luhrmann's keenly awaited biopic Elvis. The film stars former Disney Channel favourite Austin Butler in the exalted title role, as the King of Rock 'n' Roll, with Tom Hanks as his overbearing manager Colonel Tom Parker. It is rare to find Hanks playing a character practically without virtue, so it perhaps helps that he is prosthetised almost beyond recognition beneath a fat suit, sporting acres of wobbly jowls and an elongated nose, like a corpulent version of the sinister Child Catcher from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
'Where did the baby go?' Expectant mother who is seven months pregnant stumps social media users after revealing she can create the illusion of a flat stomach in seconds
