Things got very tense on Good Morning Britain when host Kate Garraway found herself in a heated spat with Coronation Street boss Kate Oates.
The Corrie producer appeared via video link from the Rovers Return to debate whether the beloved ITV soap is becoming ‘too explicit’ for pre-watershed, ahead of the David Platt male rape storyline.

But during the interview, the ITV producer took issue with telly presenter Kate when she said EastEnders‘ first gay kiss storyline was ‘shocking’.

Speaking to viewers, 50-year-old Kate Garraway said: “I suppose what parents might worry about is it feels like [Corrie] is getting more and more shocking. I remember – because I am very old – the first lesbian kiss on Brookside and the first gay man kiss on EastEnders.

But during the interview, the ITV producer took issue with telly presenter Kate when she said EastEnders‘ first gay kiss storyline was ‘shocking’.

Speaking to viewers, 50-year-old Kate Garraway said: “I suppose what parents might worry about is it feels like [Corrie] is getting more and more shocking. I remember – because I am very old – the first lesbian kiss on Brookside and the first gay man kiss on EastEnders.

“Now in tonight’s episode of Coronation Street we’re going to see the character David Platt drugged and sexually assaulted in a gay sexual assault.

“That feels like an exponential increase in the explicit nature of what’s going straight into family viewing living rooms.”

Clearly unhappy with the TV star’s comments, Kate Oates quickly hit back: “I’ve got two points to make here.”

“First of all you used a gay kiss as an example of shocking television, and I think it’s really important that no-one thinks a gay kiss is shocking”.

Defending herself, Kate then replied: “But it was at the time! It was a groundbreaking thing at the time.”

Before the Corrie boss continued: “Exactly, and that’s what’s interesting – it was at the time and now it’s been normalised – quite rightly, because to think that a gay kiss is shocking television is really, really disturbing.”

Reinforcing her point, she continued: “This needs discussion. Do it carefully, do it with consideration. I’m really delighted you mentioned those kisses as something that soaps have done to help change society for the better.”

Kate finally reassured fans about the upcoming rape storyline, adding: “We know what our viewers like and what they don’t like. We’re not losing the laughs in Corrie. I think if we lost the comedy in Corrie, I would be dragged out!”

And following the awkward disagreement, fans of the show took to Twitter to support Coronation Street boss Kate.

“@itvcorrie Please thank Kate Oates for what she said about gay rights & male rape on @GMB, what she said was so important”, said one.

While another added: “Well said kate oates your doing amazing creating or making each storyline”.

Emily in Paris Fans Think Kim Cattrall Will Make an Appearance in Season 3

Published

on

instyle– Fans are speculating a major pop-culture crossover in season 3 of Emily in Paris. After Kim Cattrall infamously turned down the chance to revive her Sex and the City character, Samantha Jones, for the rebootfans couldn’t help but wonder if Jones could make an appearance in the next season of the cult-favorite Netflix show.

If you’re watching And Just Like That … (and even if you’re not), you know that Cattrall’s character is supposedly off working her public relationships magic in London, England, just a quick trip from Emily (Lily Collins) and her booming marketing firm, Savoir.

Fans noticed major parallels between the characters, from their location to their sex positivity to their career in communications. Plus, both series were created by big-time Hollywood producer Darren Star — with SATC costume designer Patricia Field now responsible for Emily’s kitschy, Parisian looks — making a collab that much more believable.

One Twitter user wrote, “Current theory: Samantha has supposedly moved overseas, hence her lack of presence in the new SATC TV series. Then she shows up by total surprise in a crossover episode of EMILY IN PARIS. I would watch Samantha try to tolerate Emily, 100 percent.”

Collins fueled the flames by teasing a possible season 3. The actress posted photographs from her Vogue Hong Kong cover featuring a jet-black shag haircut and dark makeup writing, “Season 3 pivot?? Who’s with me? …” Collins used the same caption when reposting a fan’s Tweet with the magazine images that read, “Emily in Berlin.”

Women Who Work Outside Road-Tested the Season’s Cutest Winter Coats

Published

on

If you’re in the market for a new winter coat, there’s no shortage of options out there. Fuzzy, puffy, water resistant, bright — whatever you want, a quick Google search will surely lead you to something that promises to be top-notch. But will it actually be warm and stand up to the elements? Ehh…that’s not always a guarantee. Some coats photograph well but turn out to be flimsier, breezier, or less precipitation-proof than they look.

This season, though, InStyle.com decided to take some of that risk out of the equation. We wanted honest coat reviews — ones that told us something that wasn’t in the product description. So, we recruited the help of five ‘cold professionals,’ AKA women who work outside as part of their job. We gave them one of the coats we’d been coveting, had them walk around in it for about an hour (while we snapped photos, of course), and then asked them questions to determine its overall rating, which accounts for warmth but also coolness.

Thankfully, this crew didn’t hold back and shared some solid advice for those wondering what jacket is really worth their money this winter.

Published

on

Of the many fashion and beauty lines that members of the Kardashian/Jenner clan have launched over the past few years, Kim Kardashian West’s Skims is undoubtedly one of the family’s biggest hits. Since its debut in 2019, the shapewear and loungewear brand has won rave reviews (and earned a whole lot of money) for its comfortable styles and inclusive sizing, and so it’s no wonder that its products often sell out super quickly. If you’ve been dying to try some items out for yourself but haven’t gotten the chance just yet, we’ve got good news: Skims Cotton Rib Thermal Leggings are available at Nordstrom in so many colors and size options right now.

For anyone not familiar with thermal leggings, they’re the best during winter (or any day when the AC is on too high, if we’re being real). They’re designed to retain your body heat and keep you warm, and the best ones do so while still being light enough to allow your skin to breathe. Skims’ thermal leggings are made with ribbed stretch cotton that hugs close to the body, yet doesn’t feel suffocating.
