Strictly Come Dancing's Shirley Ballas Casts Doubt On Bruno Tonioli's Involvement In New Series
Bruno Tonioli’s role on this year’s Strictly Come Dancing is still in doubt, according to fellow judge Shirley Ballas. Last year, Bruno was unable to sit on the panel of the BBC ballroom competition as he remained in America to judge the US version of the show.In previous years, he has flown back and forth each week in order to appear on both shows at the same time. However, with restrictions on international travel still in place due to the pandemic, it’s still unclear if he will be able to be part of the upcoming series. Speaking to GB News, Shirley said: “I do believe that Motsi [Mabuse] is back, Bruno they are still deciding depending on the rules flying in and flying out. I know Bruno, if he can make it he will.”It was previously claimed Strictly bosses were working hard to reunite Shirley, Bruno, Motsi and Craig Revel Horwood on this year’s series after Motsi’s role was also placed in doubt when she signed up for a German tour that clashed with the show. However, reports have since claimed Motsi has pulled out of the tour and will take up her seat on the panel for a third year. Last year, she was temporarily replaced by professional dancer Anton Du Beke for two weeks when she was forced to isolate after an emergency trip to Germany. Meanwhile, Shirley also teased that the new series of Strictly should feel much more normal than 2020, when a number of limitations were put on the show due to the pandemic.“Be prepared for 13 weeks of pure joy. There will be some tweaks here and there and the line up sounds like it’s going to be absolutely off the chart,” she said.“Just when you think it couldn’t get any better it does and Sarah our exec just goes for it and she just finds all sorts of different things that are going to entertain the people in the autumn-winter months so we are very, very excited.”Strictly Come Dancing is due to return to BBC One in the autumn.READ MORE:Shirley Ballas 'Couldn't Remember Her Own Name' After Contracting CoronavirusJanette Manrara's Most Dazzling Dance Floor Moments As She Leaves Strictly For It Takes TwoNicola Adams Hoping For Strictly Come Dancing Return After 'Unfair' Exit

We must act to end discrimination against widows | Letter
Raj Loomba, Joanna Lumley, Cherie Blair, Karan Bilimoria, Alpesh Patel, David Alton, Margaret Jay, Chris Roles and Bill James call for support for all vulnerable women who have been left widowed by the pandemicAround the world, a large number of vulnerable women have been left widowed by the pandemic, with the virus disproportionately killing men as well as people from black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds. Their loss will be compounded by the unjust and discriminatory treatment many experience in parts of Asia and Africa, where it is not unusual for widows to be blamed for a man’s death. Many face being cast out by families and communities, condemning their future and their children’s. Even widows living in countries with less stigma often struggle financially for many years. Wednesday marks the 10th UN International Widows’ Day. Now more than ever, we need to take global action towards achieving support and rights for widows. Covid-19 may strike indiscriminately, but the continued discrimination against widows greatly exacerbates the desperate situation millions find themselves in. That is why we are leading the call from NGOs across the world for governments to support the millions of women being left marginalised after the deaths of their husbands.The UK government should demonstrate leadership, by encouraging other governments to support widows, and closer to home set an example by backing the creation of support groups and financial and practical assistance. We need to prioritise education and facilitate collaboration between authorities, communities and support organisations in order to change attitudes.We must not leave widows behind as we build back from the pandemic.Raj Loomba Founder and chair of trustees, The Loomba Foundation Joanna Lumley Patron of The Loomba Foundation Cherie Blair President of The Loomba FoundationKaran Bilimoria Co-chair of the advisory council of The Loomba FoundationAlpesh Patel Co-chair of the advisory council of The Loomba Foundation David Alton Trustee of the Arise Foundation Margaret Jay Patron of the Loomba FoundationChris Roles Managing director, Age International Bill James Chair, WAY Widowed and Young• Have an opinion on anything you’ve read in the Guardian today?

My husband thinks oral sex – for me – is unnecessary. How do I convince him otherwise?
He says he has no issues with it, but I want to be as sexually satisfied as he is and feel rejectedMy husband and I have been married for two years. We have a relatively healthy sex life but he does not reciprocate with oral sex. When confronted, he said he has no issue surrounding it, he just feels it is not necessary. I feel rejected and that the focus is primarily on him reaching an orgasm, with no focus on my enjoyment. How can I have a conversation with him without him getting defensive? I have never had an orgasm through penetrative sex and, in previous relationships, I have loved receiving oral sex.Your husband needs to be educated regarding your precise needs and the nature of female arousal and orgasm in general. It seems as if you have been extremely patient and accommodating until now, so it is probably no wonder he sees no reason to change his style. And he may be afraid he will not know exactly what to do, so you will have to help him by being very specific about what feels good. Try to frame your request for oral pleasuring in a highly seductive, playful manner – so that he realises he will be rewarded for his efforts. Once he learns that your arousal is a great turn on for him, he will be more motivated to complete the task. Continue reading...
