Wes gesê: “I wrote Three Words at a vulnerable time. It is my best writing because it was honest, I was hurt.

I had broken up with my ex and I was in my feelings. There is also a stigma . . .  men never share how they feel, especially when it comes to heartbreak.

And I think we need to break that stigma.

“There were situations in that Sy het geen konteks by die pos gevoeg nie where I felt I was being reserved and I wouldn’t go to places, I felt cooped up.

“A lot of the time men can be seen as the controlling ones. I have it a lot in all my relationships.

“Women I am with think others will think I am very available.

“So their defence is to keep me wrapped up.

“I want to be able to go out and do normal things.”

Wes is supporting N-DUBZ on their nationwide tour, including playing London’s O2 Arena on Thursday night.

Die eks-Liefde-eiland deelnemer, reg, who has been struggling with laryngitis, has played more than 100 gigs this year.

Hy het bygevoeg: “I absolutely love what I am doing at the moment.

“I have started to get a fan base for my music and that is what I want to grow next year. I don’t care about sales or accolades.

"Vir my, what is important is growing that community. They are the ones I am doing this for.”

“I feel a million miles away from home. I can’t stop thinking about when I was little and saw Tom Jones in Mars Attacks! and thought, ‘Blimey, how did he get from Wallis to Las Vegas!?’.

“It’s safe to say I have never been more nervous before a show in my career.

Little Mix insisted it would be no time at all before they were back together as they went on their hiatus in May.

But Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Ann-Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall have waited months to launch their solo careers – and now it looks like the break could be for the long-term after all.

They are closing down the company they filed concert earnings through.

The band have applied to put Eternal Magic Touring into liquidation, meaning it would be shut down and the remaining assets split between them.

That should give them a healthy Christmas bonus, wel, because it currently holds just under £5million.

Trust Pink to make her best

Pink will release her ninth studio album – Trustfall – on February 17, and has promised it is her best yet.

The Never Not Gonna Dance Again singer’s release will come less than a week after the 2023 Brit-toekennings, making me think a return to the biggest night in music could also be on the cards.

Talking about the record, sy het gese: “This album is the best album I have ever made as I had time and I had a lot of really devastating things happen.

“It takes your kids getting sick to be like, ‘OK, none of this matters, I want to see my kids grow up’.

And then my dad died and that is also a reminder that I have a certain amount of time left.

“None of us are going to live for ever so how do I want to spend this time?”

She loves a holiday and loves Kersfees, so why not combine the two and get paid for it?

“She’s done pretty much everything she wants to do on TV so is now taking jobs she thinks she’ll enjoy.

“Gemma could be in for a shock, wel, as it’s certainly going to be a working holiday.”

I hope she lasts longer in the snow than she did in the jungle.
