Chris Noth Talking About His Favourite Sex & The City Scene Is Quite Literally A Gas
Turns out the man behind Mr. Big was more into the silly moments on Sex & The City than the, uh, sex.Chris Noth spoke with Kelly Clarkson on her show this week and regaled viewers with some of his favourite moments from the iconic HBO series.Chris portrayed Mr. Big aka John James Preson – the on-and-off love interest of main character Carrie Bradshaw, portrayed by Sarah Jessica Parker – in the series and, later, both Sex & The City films.“My favourite [scene] was when [Carrie] farted in bed,” said Noth, without hesitation. “I insisted on doing the sound to get it right because I’m an expert in farts.” Through laughs, Kelly quipped that Chris is still a “boy” and a “child at heart.”Chris was referencing was a moment in the penultimate episode of the first season. Carrie farts in bed with Mr. Big, whom she has been dating for awhile. Nestling under the covers to hide her mortification, Mr. Big jokes that it “might be worse under there.” You can watch the scene here:   Chris added that he’s also partial to the episode Cock a Doodle Do!, the season three finale. In it, he and Carrie attempt to kiss near the boathouse in Central Park and end up in the lake.“We had one take to do it,” Chris said. “There were so many great moments in the series of comedy. It was just a blast to do it.”It remains unclear if Chris is participating in the upcoming reboot of the series, but we’ll just have to hope we have not seen the last of Mr. Big.READ MORE:Got Questions You 'Can't Help But Wonder' About Sex And The City's Return?

Climate crisis has shifted the Earth’s axis, study shows
Massive melting of glaciers has tilted the planet’s rotation, showing the impact of human activitiesThe massive melting of glaciers as a result of global heating has caused marked shifts in the Earth’s axis of rotation since the 1990s, research has shown. It demonstrates the profound impact humans are having on the planet, scientists said.The planet’s geographic north and south poles are the point where its axis of rotation intersects the surface, but they are not fixed. Changes in how the Earth’s mass is distributed around the planet cause the axis, and therefore the poles, to move. Continue reading...

7 Tips For Dealing With Wasps If They're Doing Your Head In
You’re sipping an ice cold white wine in your favourite beer garden when the familiar sound of buzzing reaches your ears. Before you know it, there’s a yellow jacket crawling over your glass without a care in the world.How can you deal with such pesky invaders – especially when you’re likely to be spending much more time outdoors this summer?Walter Murphy, pest control expert at PriceYourJob, shares his advice on how to safely get rid of wasps when you’re eating and drinking outside. 1. Don’t swat themIt might feel like the most natural reaction, but if a wasp decides to crash your lunch, the worst thing you can do is start flapping your arms in an attempt to swat it away. “These movements can excite or enrage the wasp, making it more likely to sting you,” says Murphy. So what should you do instead? The best thing to do is to stay as still and calm as possible, he suggests. “If you kill one wasp, you may think you have solved the problem. However dead and dying wasps emit pheromones that attract other wasps to the area, so you are potentially worsening the situation.” Great.2. Avoid bright coloursAs well as being guided to food by their sense of smell, wasps are drawn towards bright colours – so you might want to keep your fluorescent garms locked in your wardrobe for another day.It’s best to avoid wearing bright clothing or planting colourful flowers in your garden, as this could attract hordes of wasps, says Murphy. “Instead, wear light and pale colours to significantly reduce your chance of getting stung. White, tan, cream or grey are considered ‘safe’ colours, as opposed to yellow, orange or red, which may be perceived as a threat.”3. Burn citronella candlesCitronella candles are a simple but effective way to keep wasps at bay without having to kill them or spray chemicals around your children and pets. The candles release a fresh, distinctive odour that will make your dinner difficult to locate for wasps, bees, flies and other insects too.Most supermarkets, homeware and hardware stores stock citronella candles, and they can also be bought as tealights, so you can place them around your garden in candle holders. 4. Cover your foodThe longer your food is out, the bigger the chance of attracting wasps and other swarming pests. “Covering food is the best way to deter wasps,” says Murphy, “as they are less likely to smell it.”So, if you’re on a picnic, pack your food in Tupperware boxes and uncover it as you need, instead of laying it all out at once. If you’re eating at a table, cover the food once everyone has been served.Even if you can only cover your food with a mesh cloth, the wasp will eventually give up and fly away once it can’t access the food, the pest expert suggests.5. Grow strong smelling plantsThis is one for those eating at home. Wasps have an incredible sense of smell and detest the powerful odour of fragrant plants like fresh mint, ground coffee, cloves and tomato stems.“As well as enhancing your garden and providing a pleasant scent to you, wasps will become naturally repelled by the aromatic plants,” says Murphy.6. Spray peppermint oilAnd if you don’t have strong smelling plants on hand, wasps and hornets are instantly repelled by the scent of peppermint.To make a DIY oil, simply shake a tablespoon of peppermint oil with four cups of water in a spray bottle, Murphy advises. Before you sit to have your meal, spray the solution around your dining area. “This is an effective method to drive the wasps away, without using harmful chemicals or killing them.”7. Call a professionalIf there’s a wasp’s nest in your garden and you’re getting bombarded every time you leave the house, you might want to call the experts in. “Dealing with a nest without the proper equipment or training can open you up to all sorts of dangers,” says Murphy. “The wasps might swarm out to defend their home, resulting in multiple stings. Whilst smoking out a wasp’s nest will remove it; this may cause a fire which can easily get out of control.”Related...The Psychology Behind Why Our Green Habits Have ChangedHow To Recycle Your Disposable Face Masks7 Ideas For Upcycling Furniture To Use In Your Garden8 Beautiful Cycle Routes That Show The Best Of British SceneryRevealed: 28 Of The Best BBQ Buys For Summer 2021We Tried 5 Products To Combat 'Lockdown Face'.

Olivia Colman Recalls Wetting Herself On Stage Thanks To David Mitchell: 'My Entire Bladder Emptied'
Olivia Colman has revealed she once wet herself while on stage with Peep Show co-star David Mitchell. The Oscar-winning actor told of how her “entire bladder emptied” after getting a case of the giggles while performing. Speaking to Rufus Norris, co-director of the National Theatre for its Life In Stages YouTube series, Olivia pointed the finger of blame at David, saying: “It was his fault!”She said: “It is also a fear in the back of my head, that I could pee myself on stage. I did do it once, on a ranked stage.“My entire bladder emptied and it just went towards the audience in the front row. It made it worse.”Olivia added that the audience were aware of what happened and were “moving away from little bits of wee”.During the interview, Olivia also revealed she underwent hypnotherapy in a bid to tackle her stage fright.She said she “developed a massive fear” of being on stage due to the “disappointment” fans may feel if she does not meet their expectations.Explaining that it had got worse due to her increased fame, she said: “I worry that as I get older and slightly more recognisable, the fear... that all these people will watch when you fuck it up and say: ‘We went to see that person we have seen on the telly – not that good on stage’. I think I’ve built it up. I did love it. I need to get over that.”Asked by Norris how the fear manifests itself, she said before going on stage she would think, “I fucking hate this job, I fucking hate myself and I’m going to vomit or wee’, and suddenly you are on stage.“It’s an awful feeling.”Watch the full interview with Olivia below...READ MORE:Olivia Colman's Reaction To Emma Corrin's Golden Globes Win Was Adorable And So Olivia ColmanGillian Anderson Shares Hilarious Behind-The-Scenes Snap To Celebrate Olivia Colman's BirthdayOlivia Colman Reveals The Rather Rude Way She Spent Her Downtime While Filming The Crown
