Courteney Cox Treats Friends Fans To A Recreation Of Iconic Turkey Scene In Honour Of Thanksgiving
Courteney Cox got into the Thanksgiving spirit this year by recreating one of her most memorable Friends scenes.However, it sounds like she might have done it rather begrudgingly.In a video posted on her Instagram, Courteney told her followers: “Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. I hope you’re having a great day.“I’m feeling so thankful. And also… if I get one more goddamn gif with a turkey on my head, dancing like a ******* fool, I’m just going to snap.”Courteney, of course, is referring to an infamous moment during the fifth season of Friends, where Monica puts a turkey on her head (as well as some novelty sunglasses and a fez) and does a bit of dancing in an attempt to cheer Chandler up.In fact, let’s just remind ourselves of the moment in question…Truly iconic.In the 22 years since it first aired, the scene has become ubiquitous at this time of year, but it seems the actor has had enough of seeing it – which is perhaps why she felt like updating it for 2020.“So anyway,” she added. “Since I’m the symbol of Thanksgiving, here you go. Hope it makes you happy.” View this post on InstagramA post shared by Courteney Cox (@courteneycoxofficial)The post caught the attention of Courteney’s co-star Lisa Kudrow, who joked: “You DID THAT!”It was announced earlier this year that the cast of Friends would be coming together for a one-off special, but it’s been delayed multiple times as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.Fortunately for fans of the much-loved series, it looks like the wheels are in motion for the reunion, with Matthew Perry tweeting recently that filming was due to take place in March 2021.READ MORE: Matthew Perry Announces Engagement To ‘The Greatest Woman On The Face Of The Planet’ Friends Fans Share Their Most Controversial Opinions About The Show...

45,000 Asylum Seekers Waiting More Than 6 Months For Home Office Decision
More than 60,000 asylum seekers are waiting for the Home Office to decide on their applications – and three in four have been left in limbo for more than six months while living on £5.66 a day.Campaigners have warned the delays are taking a “horrendous toll” on the mental health of some of society’s most vulnerable people. While waiting for a decision from the Home Office, the vast majority of people seeking asylum are not allowed to work, and are expected to live on less than £40 a week. “While more people are waiting ever longer for a decision on their asylum claim, they are forced to live on just £5.66 a day,” explained Emma Birks, a campaign project manager for Asylum Matters. “People are trapped sometimes for years living on this meagre amount, as they are effectively banned from working.” Data published by the government on Thursday revealed that, of the 60,548 people waiting for an inital asylum decision at the end of September, 46,108 – more than three-quarters – had been waiting more than six months. It represents a 76% year-on-year increase in the number of asylum seekers left in the lurch for more than half a year about their future, up from 26,125 in September 2019. This comes despite an 8% annual decrease in the number of asylum applications, as of the end of September. Stephen Hale, chief executive of the charity Refugee Action, condemned the delays. “It’s appalling that more than three in four people are now waiting longer than six months for a decision on their asylum claim,” he said. “Forcing people to live in limbo on a measly allowance of just £5.66 a day for sometimes years on end can take a horrendous toll on their mental health.” “Forcing people to live in limbo on a measly allowance of just £5.66 a day for sometimes years on end can take a horrendous toll on their mental health.”Stephen Hale, Refugee ActionHome Office data also showed that the number of people waiting for their initial asylum claim to be processed had increased every single quarter except one since March 2017, rising from 27,048 to 60,548 in three-and-a-half years. Another 2,861 cases were awaiting further review at the end of September. Former shadow home secretary Diane Abbott said that vulnerable people were suffering as the “mismanagement of the Home Office goes from bad to worse under this government”. “This scale of backlog in dealing with cases is unacceptable, especially as we know many asylum seekers are confined in intolerable conditions,” the Labour MP said. “Ministers should commit to a rapid turnaround of all cases and a removal of the backlog as an urgent priority.”Andy Hewett, head of advocacy at the Refugee Council, echoed Abbott’s call. “Despite extensive media coverage suggesting the contrary, 2020 has not seen a surge in asylum claims. In the year to September 2020, asylum claims fell by 8%, and no refugees were resettled,” he said. “Clearly, the pandemic continues to have a significant impact on the asylum system, with pre-existing systemic problems, such as the asylum case backlog, worsening and causing tens of thousands of people to be stuck in the asylum system for months on end, unable to plan for the future and struggling to survive on £5.66 per day. “The government urgently needs to address the growing backlog of cases, and grant people waiting more than six months the right to work.” In a statement, home secretary Priti Patel said the need for change in the UK’s asylum system “has never been clearer”. “With over 48,000 asylum cases stuck in this broken system, I will bring forward new legislation next year to ensure vulnerable people get the support they need instead of being stuck in the system waiting for a decision and unable to get on with rebuilding their lives.“This also means ending abuse of the asylum system,” the Tory frontbencher said.“Our new legislation will introduce a new firm system to expediate removals of foreign criminals, stop people coming here illegally and instead prioritise those most in need who play by the rules.”The Home Office is currently facing a fresh row over its plan for a charter deportation flight to Jamaica on December 2. While the government has insisted all the people set to be on the flight are “foreign national offenders”, campaigners say non-British nationals are being punished twice for their crimes. They have also warned that the move will put lives at risk amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, which has killed more than 1.4m people around the world.  Related...

Exclusive: No.10 'Demanded UK Flag Be Printed On Oxford Vaccine Doses'
Downing Street has attempted to get doses of the Oxford Universitycoronavirus vaccine labelled with Union Jacks.HuffPost UK understands No.10′s newly-formed “Union unit”, tasked with fighting calls for Scottish independence and other campaigns to break up the UK, wanted injection kits to bear the flag.It asked the government’s vaccine task force to insist manufacturers of the vaccine – developed by Britain’s top university alongside pharmaceutical giant AstraZeneca – use the UK flag.No.10 said there were no plans for the Union Jack to be on doses, but did not deny that the request – said by insiders to have strong backing from health secretary Matt Hancock and business secretary Alok Sharma – had been made. A government spokesperson said: “Manufacturing for some of the leading potential vaccines is already underway so they can be rolled out quickly if approved.“Manufacturers are well-versed in the best way to package products like this.”It came as Nicola Sturgeon told the BBC she would seek a second independence referendum “in the earlier part” of the next Scottish parliament. The SNP continues to dominate the political landscape north of the border having held the vast majority of Westminster seats since 2015. It is also on course to win the 2021 Holyrood elections, a victory that follows the party holding the balance of power in Edinburgh since 2007. While Boris Johnson’s Scottish secretary Alister Jack said there should not be a second referendum for “25 to 40 years”, ministers are privately concerned about the spike in support since Covid-19. There is steadily growing support for a vote on Welsh independence and fresh debate on Irish unity post-Brexit, due to the threat of a hard border. It is thought Boris Johnson’s aides hoped underlining the British success of the Oxford vaccine would boost affection for the Union and, abroad, “Global Britain” as the UK prepares to break from the EU to trade around the world. One Whitehall official told HuffPost UK there had been an intensification in recent months on shoring up support for the Union. “There has been a renewed interest on the impact of policy decisions on the union, and ensuring it is in no way detrimental to the devolved nations,” she said. “It is something we have to constantly be mindful of. They are trying hard to keep the union intact.” Others inside Westminster think using the GB brand would instil public confidence in the vaccine, amid fears the anti-vaxxer movement is gaining ground online.The makers of the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine have said they plan to conduct an additional global trial to assess the drug after questions were raised over some of its original results.Scientists had expressed doubts about the robustness of results showing the shot was 90% effective in a sub-group of trial participants who were accidentally given a half dose followed by a full dose, instead of two full doses. The difference was caused by a manufacturing error.The average efficacy of the vaccine was reported as just over 70%, taking into account both the group that received an initial half dose and the group that received two full doses.Related...

Piers Morgan Is No Doubt Loving The Fact Comedian Munya Chawawa Has Named His Debut Single After Him
Internet comedian Munya Chawawa has unveiled his debut single, and it’s one we think could well capture the attention of a certain controversial daytime host.The name of the track? Piers Morgan.After signing a deal with Atlantic Records, Munya debuted his first single on Friday, under the guise of one of his comedy characters, Unknown P, “the UK’s first ‘posh’ drill rapper”.While the song’s music video features a set very reminiscent of the Good Morning Britain studio, Munya (or should that be Unknown P) is heard rapping: “Sipping on tea, pass me a bourbon, had to run a man down in my wellies, now I’m telly, Piers Morgan, Susanna Reid I’m adorin’.” We can only imagine how thrilled the man himself is to make it into a rap song –  even if it is one recorded by a comedy character.A press release for Piers Morgan (the song, not the man, obviously), explains: “Written over a booming drill beat, the track itself documents a day in the life of Unknown P and nods to his daily consumption of morning television and the divisive figure that is Piers Morgan.”Announcing the track earlier this week, Munya joked on Twitter: “@PiersMorgan, I suggest you start writing your reply now.” It's coming, marndem! The debut single from Unknown P - 'Piers Morgan'. ??Pre-order it here: https://t.co/UN6rIcXx1x@piersmorgan, I suggest you start writing your reply now ? pic.twitter.com/IPXHoTyp1a— Munya Chawawa (@munyachawawa) November 25, 2020Munya has gained a huge online following in recent times, thanks to sketches featuring characters like “Bi Bi Si News” presenter Barty Crease and Unknown P, who previously featured in a music video sending up the beef between Stormzy and Chip.On Tuesday, it was announced that Munya had been nominated for a Mobo Award, in the new category of Best Media Personality, alongside Clara Amfo, Maya Jama, Mo Gilligan and KSI.Watch the Piers Morgan music video in full above.READ MORE: Piers Morgan Debuts Less-Than-Flattering Boris Johnson Impression As He Tears Into PM Once Again Lorraine Kelly Says What We’re All Thinking On Piers And Susanna's Five Year GMB Anniversary Viewers Unimpressed As Matt Hancock Swerves Questions In First Appearance On GMB In 201 Days
