Has Tommy been telling people they’ve been doing bits? (Picture: Rex) Molly-Mae Hague has let slip that she’s been doing bits with Tommy Fury in bed – just as she’s panicking about him telling other people. In tonight’s episode of the ever-complicated reality show, Molly-Mae is seen playing coy when Maura quizzes her on how things are going with Tommy. While she keeps her mouth shut, a determined Maura wants some answers, telling her: ‘There was something going down.’ But Molly-Mae insists that there wasn’t…and she manages to keep the charade up for a full few hours before the pressure of the secret gets the better of her. Becoming paranoid that Tommy has been telling people what’s been going on, seeing him head up for a terrace chat with Curtis Pritchard sends her into overdrive. To be fair, in the words of queen Maura, that is where ‘all the s**t goes down’. Molly and Tommy have been going from strength to strength in the villa (Picture: Ruckas) Instead of trying to intercept the chat, Molly-Mae instead relies on some intel from Michael – fully giving away that her and Tommy have become members of the Do Bits Society. She’s seen telling him: ‘Obviously we’ve been doing bits. I’ve denied, denied it, denied it. And I know that as soon as he cracks a smile, that’s it. And I know what he’s like.’ [metro-video id=”1952964″] Continuing to dig that hole a little deeper for herself, she then enlists Amy for more information by getting her to find out what Curtis knows. Eventually, Tommy finds out she’s been wondering – and goes to confront her and calm her down about her worries. ‘I’m not like that, I don’t need to brag about it,’ he tells her. [metro-tag-post-strip] But does she actually have grounds to be worried or not? With the boys already proving themselves to go into full on ‘lad’ mode when they’re all together – are we doomed for a repeat of Maura-gate from earlier this week? Love Island continues tonight at 9pm on ITV2.

One that Danny Boyle loves though, is that Paul – arguably one of the greatest songwriters ever – reportedly wrote two of the band’s most beautiful tracks in one day. ‘I heard that Paul wrote The Long And Winding Road and Let It Be on the same day,’ he told Metro.co.uk. ‘What? One in the morning and one in the afternoon!’ Danny’s new film Yesterday plays on the idea that after a worldwide power cut, The Beatles are erased from the entire population’s mind apart from one man, Jack Malik, a struggling singer-songwriter who realises he could use this to his advantage. Former EastEnders star Himesh Patel stars as Jack and he shared his own folk tale of the band behind hits such as Hey Jude and Yellow Submarine. Yesterday was nearly called Scrambled Eggs.. .(Picture: Getty Images) ‘There is a story that goes round that a lot of early Beatles songs use this chord B7 and apparently John and Paul took a bus to find the only guy in Liverpool who knew how to play B7,’ he said. ‘Because you couldn’t just google it so they had to find a guy! I don’t know if it’s true but I like it.’ [metro-video id=”1953014″ video=”https://videos.metro.co.uk/video/met/2019/06/25/2236780551721237589/480x270_MP4_2236780551721237589.mp4” image=”https://i.dailymail.co.uk/1s/2019/06/25/16/15234936-0-image-a-8_1561475338528.jpg“] Richard Curtis, who wrote the film – and is a surprise Love Island fan – also shared his own folk tale although this one came directly from Sir Paul himself. ‘I had a sweet moment when I wrote to Paul to ask if it was okay to call the movie Yesterday,’ he said, ‘and he wrote back and said “why don’t you call it Scrambled Eggs?” as that was famously the original title for Yesterday. ‘I told him if it turned out to be a mess we’d turn it to Scrambled Eggs!’ Yesterday is out in the UK on 28 June.

Kylie Jenner spent Met Gala talking to Alex Rodriguez about how rich she is (Picture: GC Images) Kylie Jenner absolutely slayed the Met Gala in her OTT, feather covered outfit and matching, purple wig. However, it sounds as though the 21-year-old’s costume made up for her conversation flow, as despite killing the pink carpet, it seems all she could talk about was herself. Oh, and her money – she did become the youngest self-made billionaire, didn’t you know? Talking about the glamorous ceremony, Alex Rodriguez opened up on the evening and how he spent it learning all about the Kylie Cosmetic Lip Kits. Seriously. ‘We had a great table,’ he excitedly admitted to the Where Are They Now issue of Sports Illustrated. She slayed the pink carpet (Picture: WireImage) ‘The black guy from The Wire – Idris Elba, yeah, and his new wife,’ the star laughed before adding: ‘Some famous singer next to me, I don’t know what her name is. Versace Donatella.’ He then went on to discuss how the Jenner sisters also joined the lineup – although it doesn’t sound like their conversation was as exciting as A-Rod might have hoped. ‘We had Kylie and Kendall. And we had an Asian gentleman from Rich Asians, the lead.’ The star revealed: ‘Kylie was talking about Instagram and her lipstick, and how rich she is.’ At least we know what he’ll be getting his fiancee, Jennifer Lopez, for Christmas this year. At least we know what he’ll be getting his fiancee, Jennifer Lopez, for Christmas (Picture: Getty Images) Kylie recently raised eyebrows when she was dubbed the youngest self-made billionaire by Forbes. The mother-of-one claims that none of her money is inherited, however fans were left questioning the ‘self-made’ part of the beauty mogul’s new title. In an interview with Paper Magazine, the Keeping Up With The Kardashian’s star has since addressed the mystery surrounding her fortune. Without confirming whether she really has a billion-dollar empire, Kylie told the publication: ‘The self-made thing is true. ‘I had such a huge platform, I had so many followers already and I had so many people watching me. [metro-tag-post-strip] ‘My parents told me I needed to make my own money, it’s time to learn how to save and spend your own money, stuff like that.’ She added: ‘What I’m trying to say is I did have a platform, but none of my money is inherited.’ [metro-fact-box id=”7022752″ title=”Got a showbiz story?” icon=”exclamation” /] [metro-link url=”https://metro.co.uk/2019/06/25/love-island-hopefuls-undergo-bmi-testing-part-application-process-itv-boss-reveals-10069610/” title=”Love Island hopefuls have to undergo BMI testing as part of the application process, ITV boss reveals”] [metro-link url=”https://metro.co.uk/2019/06/25/ed-sheeran-can-get-away-wearing-t-shirt-royal-company-hams-prince-edward-10069733/” title=”Ed Sheeran can get away with wearing a t-shirt in royal company as he hams it up with Prince Edward “]

[metro-video id=”1952964″] Love Island might never be the same again after Yewande Biala’s exit has torn the house apart in a sneak peak of tonight’s episode. Last night, Danny Williams chose to dump the scientist for supermodel Arabella Chi days after insisting his head couldn’t be turned. He may have a fan in The Apprentice’s Claude Littner, but as Danny and Arabella shared their first kiss just hours after Yewande was out of the villa, Amber Gill made her feelings pretty clear and yelled ‘ugh’ at Love Island’s new couple. [metro-tag-post-strip] Unsurprisingly, it all kicked off in scenes which will make their way onto ITV2 tonight. In turn, Anna Vakili and Jordan Hames are at war after he called her ‘pathetic’ for snapping at Danny, while Amber’s now decided she can’t trust Michael Griffiths. ‘Some supermodel chick can just come in and take your man,’ Amber sighed, and she has a point. Amber Gills speaks for the nation as she shouts at Danny Williams on Love Island tonight (Picture: ITV) Not that the tension is going slow Danny and Arabella down as they’re seen basically frothing at the thought of sharing a bed together, which will go down a storm with everyone else. Love Island fans slammed Danny in their droves last night as he used a bold choice of words to seemingly make a dig at Yewande’s intelligence, before she hit back with the sass on her way out. Following her exit, Yewande pulled Arabella up on her BS and predicted Danny’s head would probably turn again. Danny and Arabella waste no time and start kissing just hours after Yewande’s exit (Picture: ITV) ‘I hate it when a bombshell comes in saying, “I want to get to know everyone”, because that is a lie. You know who you’re going for,’ she snapped. ‘She knew she wanted Danny. I feel like if he does get to know her, it’s not going to work. There are so many factors – they’re so different, and the age gap. ‘You have to be realistic. He’s just starting his life – he’s only 21. ‘They are in two different phases of their lives. In the villa, it’s very easy to forget. Love Island continues tonight at 9pm on ITV2.
