Fans are concerned for Travis Barker after he was reportedly taken to hospital in an ambulance while accompanied by his wife, Kourtney Kardashian. Although it is currently unclear why Travis was taken to hospital, the musician tweeted ‘God save me’ ahead of his hospital stay. We’re wishing the star a very speedy recovery.

Eva Mendes has defended her partner Ryan Gosling’s transformation for his role as Ken in the new Barbie film. Ryan Gosling has dyed his hair platinum blonde for the role and joked that critical fans should know that he is playing a fake person. The Greta Gerwig project also stars Margot Robbie as Barbie – and fans have been loving the first look photos of the pair in action on set.

Dame Deborah James’ mother Heather has posted about her daughter’s death, saying that her heart is broken, and told Deborah that she loves her forever. Deborah, also known as bowel babe, passed away from bowel cancer in late June after being diagnosed with the disease back in 2016. She raised millions for charity and was awarded a damehood in May in recognition of her fundraising.
