Oh my giddy aunt. Stop the press, this is big news. No wait, this isn’t big news, this is huge news!

Ultimate power couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have split.

To me it just looks like two people having a perfectly innocent conversation. But what do I know?

Yep, that’s right, the couple have reportedly decided that after 11 years together at the top of the Hollywood elite, they are to go their separate ways.

Why, I hear you cry. Well, we all want to know that.

Angelina is the one who has filed for divorce and Brad is apparently feeling blindsided by the whole thing, declaring his ‘sadness’.

It seems like it has come out of nowhere, given that both Brad and Ange were papped recently with their wedding rings on.

Ange has cited ‘irreconcilable differences’, which could mean quite literally anything and everything.

But some in Hollywood have alleged concerns over alcohol and anger issues.

Meanwhile Brad’s ex Jennifer Aniston’s team are denying that she’s split from her husband of what, two minutes, Justin Theroux as soon as she heard the news that Brad was being dumped.

What a load of nonsense.

For one thing, it’s 11 long years since Brad allegedly had an affair with Angelina that led to his divorce from Jennifer.

And secondly, she’s only just got married, so come on people, get a grip.

Of course, the world’s press are going mad with speculation as to what the reasons are behind the shock announcement of Brad and Ange’s split.

Some claim the final straw was a photo of Brad chatting to pop sensation and actress Selena Gomez, where they supposedly looked ‘cosy’.

To me it just looks like two people having a perfectly innocent conversation. But what do I know?

Nobody really knows what goes on behind closed doors.

We have no idea about the lives of people in our own street, so we’re hardly going to know the intimate details of famous folk who live in America, are we?

With their rather large blended family, I just hope the children aren’t the ones who suffer collateral damage from Brad and Ange’s divorce.

VISIT TO CAT CAFE WAS A WEIRD BUT WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE

I’ve been in Nottingham this week, filming for the BBC1 series Caught Red Handed – and spent the entire day filming at a cat cafe.

Yep, it really was a cafe full of cats. And the problem for me is that I’m allergic to them.

So I walk into The Kitty Cafe and I’m literally surrounded by 30 cats.

The concept is lovely – cats that are rescued or in need of re-homing are taken in by the cafe, looked after, vetted and then re-homed to the right people.

But it was extremely surreal spending all day with these cats roaming around.

They certainly seem popular. The place was packed out and people had travelled from all around the country to visit the cafe.

A weird but strangely wonderful experience.

GO ON, PROVE US WRONG GUYS - MAKE IT GO THE WHOLE STRETCH

In happier celebrity news, actors Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes have apparently tied the knot in a secret ceremony.

The couple, who got together in 2011, have been dating ever since and are always pictured together, sharing family time with their two daughters Esmeralda and Amada.

Ryan, who is 35, and Eva, 42, met whilst starring in Derek Cianfrance’s thriller The Place Beyond The Pines.

They’ve been inseparable ever since and sources close to the couple say it’s true love.

They apparently tied the knot in a small, simple ceremony with family and friends.

Let’s hope this marriage lasts slightly longer than many other Hollywood match-ups. Prove us wrong guys – go the whole stretch!
