Magnum ice cream and Calippos urgently recalled from UK supermarkets – The Sun

TUBS of Magnum ice cream and Calippo lollies are urgently being recalled from UK supermarkets.

Shoppers are being warned about the treats as the country has sweltered through the sunniest spring since records began.

The mini Calippo ice lollies sold by almost all major UK supermarkets have been recalled over fears they contain pieces of metal.

This makes the treats, which are popular among kids, unsafe and shoppers are being advised not to eat them.

The product recall applies to multi-packs of Wall's Mini Calippo which come in the flavours of orange and lemon-lime.

These are sold in six-packs of 80ml lollies in supermarkets including Asda, Iceland, Morrisons, Ocado and Sainsbury's for prices ranging between £1.50 and £2.

They've previously also been up for grabs at Tesco but are currently listed as unavailable on its website.

The products being recalled come with best before dates of April 2022 or May 2022.

They will also have a batch code, which can be found on the side of the box, of either L0121, L0122, L0123, L0124, L0125 or L0126.

While Magnum white chocolate ice cream sold in Asda have been recalled over fears they could trigger allergic reactions.

The treats contain milk yet this is only mentioned in Italian and not English on the packaging.

Your product recall rights

PRODUCT recalls are an important means of protecting consumers from dangerous goods.

As a general rule, if a recall involves a branded product, the manufacturer would usually have lead responsibility for the recall action.

But it's often left up to supermarkets to notify customers when products could put them at risk.

If you are concerned about the safety of a product you own, always check the manufacturer’s website to see if a safety notice has been issued.

When it comes to appliances, rather than just food items, the onus is usually on you – the customer – to register the appliance with the manufacturer as if you don't there is no way of contacting you to tell you about a fault.

If you become aware that an item you own has been recalled or has any safety noticed issued against it, make sure you follow the instructions given to you by the manufacturer.

They should usually provide you with more information and a contact number on its safety notice.

In some cases, the manufacturer might ask you to return the item for a full refund or arrange for the faulty product to be collected.

You should not be charged for any recall work – such as a repair, replacement or collection of the recalled item.

This means people who suffer from an allergy to milk or milk constituents may accidentally eat the ice cream, which could cause them harm.

People who are allergic to milk can experience problems with their digestive system, such as diarrhoea, a bloated stomach, feeling sick and stomach cramps.

The product recall affects the 440ml tubs, which come with a batch code of either L9255AT138 or L9255BT138.

They have a best before date of September 2021. This information can be found on the rim of the lid.

The tubs are currently sold at Asda for £4, but was recently also available at Tesco for £3.85.

They've previously also been sold in Iceland, and are listed on Ocado's and Spar's websites too.

If you've bought the treats, Calippo's and Magnum's owner Unilever is advising you not to eat them.

Instead, you should contact Unilever by calling 0800 146252 or emailing [email protected] for a refund.

Magnum and Calippo said no other products are affected by the issue.

The Sun has asked Unilever how many ice cream tubs and lollies it's recalling, so we'll update this article if we get a response.

Unilever added in a statement: "The safety of the people that buy and use our products is always our number one priority, which is why we are taking the voluntary precaution of recalling these batches.

"We would like to apologise for any inconvenience and concern caused and thank everyone for their co-operation."

Other recent product recalls to watch out for include jars of pesto at Lidl, which are being recalled over allergy fears.

While Morrisons is recalling ten types of fresh herbs over listeria fears.

In March, Co-op recalled hash browns due to fears they contain plastic.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West ‘threaten ex-bodyguard with $10M lawsuit’ after he called rapper ‘needy’ and ‘moody’ – The Sun

KIM KARDASHIAN and Kanye West have threatened an ex-bodyguard with a $10 million lawsuit after he called the rapper "needy" and "moody" on a podcast.

The famous couple had previously planned to sue him in 2016, and also demanded he make a public apology at the time.

TMZ reported on Monday that Kim, 39, and Kanye, 42, sent Steve Stanulis a cease and desist letter after he went on the Hollywood Raw Podcast with scandalous claims about the rapper.

The couple claimed the bodyguard-turned- film director made "false and defamatory" statements and breached their confidentiality agreement.

Steve allegedly signed the agreement in February 2016, and vowed he would never talk about the famous pair's personal life or business matters.

Kim and Kanye reportedly said they will sue if he talks about them again.

Zack Teperman, Steve's publicist, told TMZ: "… no breach of any confidentiality agreement was done.

"My client went on a podcast to promote his new film, and old stories that were already out there were brought up."

Last month, Steve went on the podcast and talked about his experience working for the rapper.

Steve said: "He wanted you to stay 10 paces behind him on a city street, so obviously, if someone is gonna come up and do something, by the time I run up and try to prevent it, it would have already happened."

Steve also alleged that Kanye and Kim called photographers, insisting "there’s no way [paparazzi] don't get called upfront."

"There’s no way every time they're leaving, all these people know about it.

"There’s definitely – somebody's calling ahead. That’s just my opinion."

He also claimed that the rapper would get "mad" for Steve walking ahead of him and ruining a photographer's clear shot.

The former bodyguard continued: "Technically, I'm supposed to walk in front of you. I gotta make sure you're okay.

"He got mad at me for being in his shot. So I'm like…are you serious?

"Instead of saying thank you, he was mad at me for being in the shot."

Steve also accused Kanye of refusing to listen, claiming that the Flashing Lights star was once "intoxicated" and unable to find his room at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel.

The security team there "didn't know" who Kanye was, and there was a "language barrier," Steve said.

Steve also claimed Kanye would be "ranting and raving" because Steve did not push the elevator button.

He said: "So I said, ‘Look, bro, we can do this one of three ways. One, you could tell me what button to press, and now I’ll know.

Two, you could press the button, and I’ll see which one you press so I’ll know.

Or three, you can sit in here all day and tell me how important your time is and we are not going to go anywhere.’

Again, that was our first interaction."

Steve's comments come nearly four years after he was rumored to have been fired by Kanye for speaking to his wife Kim after the 2016 Met Gala.

He later alleged that a shocking attack on Kim in Paris during fashion week was a "publicity stunt."

EastEnders’ top ten steamy soap affairs from Phil and Sharon to Dirty Den and Michelle – The Sun

EASTENDERS has provided the nation with plenty of dramatic moments in the past, including a whole host of scandalous affairs.

From Phil and Sharon to Dirty Den and Michelle, we take a look back on some of the greatest forbidden romances that rocked Walford.

Max Branning and Stacey Slater

The nation was gripped by Stacey and Max's longstanding fling behind son Bradley's back.

In one of the most classic EastEnders episodes ever, their secret was outed when Bradley decided to put on a DVD of his and Stacey’s wedding day, which was a Christmas gift from Lauren.

Lauren had caught Max and Stacey talking about their illicit relationship and even sharing a kiss before Stacey walked down the aisle to Bradley – blowing their cover entirely.

Phil and Sharon Mitchell

Phil and Sharon's steamy fling behind brother Grant's back has remained one of the most memorable storylines in the soap’s history.

Grant – who was in prison at the time – found out the pair had slept together after hearing his wife confess on tape to Michelle Fowler.

Grant then played the tape to a packed Queen Vic, where everyone was gathered to celebrate Phil and Kathy Beale's engagement news.

Keanu Taylor and Sharon Mitchell

Sharon certainly can't help when it comes to bedding taken men.

In recent years, she went on to enjoy steamy affair with hunky Keanu Taylor behind Phil's back.

However, things got slightly messy after it was revealed Keanu was the biological father of Phil’s wife's baby and his daughter Louise’s.

Phil later uncovered the truth on Christmas Day, with Sharon announcing the affair to the pub.

Pat Butcher and Patrick Trueman

Pat was known for being one of the show’s most prolific man-eaters, getting through a string of men including  Dirty Den and lovable Patrick.

Despite being married, Patrick couldn't resist the opportunity of a casual fling with Pat.

However, they are seen together by Stacey Slater who informed Patrick's wife Yolande, which ended the affair and ignited a bitter feud between the two women.

Phil Mitchell and Melanie Owen

Mel and Phil slept together behind the back of Mel's best mate Lisa.

Lisa later left Phil, and unknown to him, she was pregnant with his baby.

Bianca Jackson and Dan Sullivan

Bianca's time on the Square was plagued with drama, but her first shock exit occurred after rekindling her romance with old flame Dan Sullivan – who was dating her mum Carol at the time.

Carol later disowned her daughter when she learned of their romance.

The drama followed on from Bianca's 1997 wedding to Ricky, which drew one of the biggest soap audiences in history.

Christian Clark and Syed Masood

Christian and Syed began a secret affair that continued even after Syed married wife Amira.

Their romance was unveiled by Christian himself, after Syed turned down his offer to run away with him to Barcelona.

The news was all too much for poor Amira, who later left the Square when she discovered her hubby's gay affair.

Dirty Den and Michelle Fowler

Den Watts cemented his Dirty Den nickname by embarking on an affair with 16-year-old Michelle Fowler.

Not only was Den much older, but Michelle was his adopted daughter Sharon's best friend.

Den later fathered a child with Michelle after having sex in the pub.

The pair's daughter Vicki was born and Den financially supported the mother and baby in secret.

Kat Slater and Derek Branning

Viewers were left on their edge of their seats during Kat's secret fling with one of the Branning brothers.

Kat’s hubby Alfie eventually forced her to confess after storming into The Queen Vic to confront the siblings.

The secret came to light after the camera panned across the trio of final suspects before doing a close-up on Derek.

Pat and Frank Butcher

Former couple Pat and Frank rekindled their romance behind the backs of Peggy Mitchell and Roy Evans.

Peggy’s discovery of the affair in 2000 resulted in a memorable fight in the Queen Vic.

Major BBC, Channel 5 Entertainment Shows Returning To Studio Shoots Following The Coronavirus Shut Down

EXCLUSIVE: After TV production went dark at the height of the coronavirus pandemic, the lights are slowly being switched back on for studio shows in the UK, with the BBC and Channel 5 among those restarting entertainment shoots.

Deadline understands that the BBC’s Fulwell 73-produced Peter Crouch: Save Our Summer is among the first entertainment shows to return to the studio after the industry-wide shut down in March. Filming has taken place at London’s Riverside Studios ahead of the program’s premiere on BBC One this Saturday.

Channel 5’s The Gadget Show is also heading back to the studio on Tuesday after Season 31 was postponed on March 26. The ViacomCBS network’s show will return to television on June 12, with All3Media’s North One TV putting in place protocols to help make the set coronavirus-proof.

These first steps back into studio production will pave the way for other big shows to return later this year. Deadline hears that Have I Got News For You is planning for a late October return to its Riverside set after Hat Trick Productions gamely experimented with video technology housed in a CGI studio to keep the show on TV during the pandemic.

The Graham Norton Show is also planning to return to some sort of normality in the autumn, when So Television hopes to move the show back into its Television Centre home. Norton has remained on-air, with the Irish presenter interviewing guests remotely from home.

The producers are working with the BBC on their plans and safety protocols, and each show is being assessed on a case-by-case basis. One of the biggest question marks will be whether audiences will be allowed back into studios, while a lack of insurance is another issue for many producers.

Intense work is also underway on the UK’s most ambitious studio entertainment shows. Syco and Fremantle still hope to stage the Britain’s Got Talent finals for ITV in the autumn, while ITV will also be hopeful it can return to The Voice, which was halted mid-season, but has resumed production in other territories, including Australia.

The BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing is another show targeting autumn. Deadline understands producers have considered quarantining cast and crew on the show so they can work in a bubble, while other ideas that have been floated in various press reports include theatrical masks for performers and sitting audience members around tables to help with social distancing.

These are not concerns for The Gadget Show, which will be filmed at a remote studio in Hartlebury, on the outskirts of Birmingham, without an audience. North One has put in place protocols to ensure that the presenters and crew do not use public transport to reach the DRP studio, while social distancing will be strictly enforced on-set.

The studio will be built and rigged the day before each shoot, while two cameras and one sound recordist will be stationed on the studio floor. There will be no gallery operation — instead, directors and producers will watch on from isolated areas of the studio, and editing and voiceover work will be completed remotely.

Other protocols include the studio having a strict one-way system for movement, and presenters having to apply their own makeup. The safety regime was drawn up using the UK broadcaster and producer coronavirus guidelines published last month.

Eddie Hearn insists Anthony Joshua would ‘hate’ him if he revealed real reasons he lost to Andy Ruiz Jr – The Sun

ANTHONY JOSHUA would "hate" Eddie Hearn if the promoter revealed the real reasons he underperformed in his loss against Andy Ruiz Jr.

AJ was dropped four times during his first career defeat, which ended in round seven, with mystery then surrounding the Brit star pre and post fight with the heavyweight accused of being concussed. 

Joshua was forced to deny being dropped in sparring and even refute claims he had a panic attack before the headliner on his US debut in New York.

But Hearn admits Joshua has his reasons for coming into the fight sluggish and off his game but unlike Deontay Wilder – who blamed his loss to Tyson Fury on his ring costume – those excuses will not be aired.

Hearn told Sky Sports: "It's nothing to do with sparring or panic attacks but there are reasons that he wasn't firing on all cylinders. He will never tell you, and he would hate for me to tell you.

"He doesn't want excuses like we've seen with Deontay Wilder."

"When I look back now, knowing what was wrong, I can look at his face and say: 'You knew you weren't 100 percent, didn't you?'

"But all week he was fine, smiling. At no point did anyone say: 'He doesn't seem himself'. Looking back now there is something in his eyes that says: 'I'm not best prepared'."

Joshua remained radio silent after his setback, but came out triumphant six months later as he enacted revenge on Ruiz in Saudi Arabia to reclaim the WBA, IBF and WBO titles.

But after career defining win, the 30-year-old hinted that he suffered a health problem before the stunning loss.

Joshua told BBC Sport: "I had some issue with my health which I was going through for a long time.

"I didn't know what was wrong with me. I felt so tired and drained and thought it must be down to training.

"In the changing room before the fight I got a bucket of ice and was putting my head in it thinking 'why do I feel so tired?'

"The responsibilities of being world champion are difficult. All that stuff, feeling so tired, dealing with obligations.

"Now I have energy, I haven't missed a session."


Joshua admitted to last year requiring an operation as well as treating the mystery ailment that hasn't affected him since.

He added: "After my check-ups it showed what the problem was and this is what you have to get sorted.

"Even in this camp I had an operation done but as I'd started training in June I had no issues."

Corrie star Kym Marsh denies having botox after fans compliment 'flawless' skin

Coronation Street star Kym Marsh has denied having botox after a fan complimented her ‘wrinkle free’ skin.

The actress — who portrayed Michelle Connor on the long-running ITV soap — posted a selfie on Instagram.

She captioned the post with: ‘Actually bothered to put some makeup on!!! Forgot what my face can look like, as recently it looks like it’s fallen off.’

Following the post, Kym received several compliments from fans in the comment section, with one commenting: ‘Your skin always looks flawless. Would love to see what you use xx’, while another said: ‘You are very pretty with or without make up,’ and another added: ‘Ha know the feeling! You look lovely x’

One fan was so in awe of Kym’s look, that they said: ‘Have you had botox or is it filter you’re using?’

Kym responded with: ‘Well if I had botox it would have worn off by now wouldn’t it?

The fan then replied: ‘I didn’t mean it as nasty just generally intrigued as your skin looks so smooth and wrinkle free. Awesome’.

Kym played Michelle in Coronation Street between 2006 and 2019, and has appeared in a number of the soap’s biggest ever storylines during that period.

She is currently taking a break from the serial drama, and thus made her final appearance at the end of last year.

Can hope and happiness cure the incurable?

Can hope and happiness cure the incurable? Psychiatrist examines the relationship between mind and body for healing from terminal illness

  • Psychiatrist Jeffrey Rediger of Harvard Medical School, has penned a new book
  • He examines terminally ill people who’ve confounded medical science to live 
  • Author calls for Western doctors to embrace the ‘medicine of hope’ 



by Jeffrey Rediger (Penguin £16.99, 400 pp)

When Jeffrey Rediger, a psychiatrist at Harvard Medical School, began writing this compelling book about illness and wellness, he can hardly have imagined that it would have been published in the middle of a catastrophic pandemic.

Rediger offers many clinically documented examples of people stricken with terrible, often terminal, diseases and sometimes given just weeks to live, who confounded medical science and got better. He tells us how they did it, or at least how they appeared to do it.

In one way, the coronavirus makes these stories less than timely. Nobody is suggesting that changes in diet, exercise, eliminating stress, or finding love (all of which are used to explain various cases of ‘spontaneous remission’), can overwhelm the dreaded Covid-19.

Jeffrey Rediger of Harvard Medical School, explores the relationship between mind and body in a fascinating new science book (file image)

Yet in many other ways, Cured couldn’t be more timely. In this crisis, we are all thinking about our health like never before and the notion that we might, in some circumstances, be able to chase away life-threatening diseases ourselves, feels more resonant than ever.

Rediger introduces us to Claire Haser, who was 63 when, in 2008, she was diagnosed with the most aggressive form of pancreatic cancer. Told to expect no more than 12 months, she declined dangerous surgery in favour of letting ‘nature take its course’. But she resolved to focus not on dying, but on living ‘with as much zest and happiness as I could for however long I had left’. The year passed. Then another.

In 2013, she was hospitalised for a scan of her abdomen, unrelated to her cancer. Doctors were astonished to find the tumour had vanished.

Nobody knows for sure what made the tumour disappear. Diet was perhaps part of it; Claire had started eating much more healthily, but she’d altered her mindset, too, confronting certain fears and obstacles that had always held her back in life. All these factors, Rediger argues, allowed her immune system to do its job again.

Rediger has spent 17 years examining cases of spontaneous remission all over the world, looking for common ground. Many of the people he met, whose remarkable stories are explained by science as ‘flukes’ and by religion as ‘miracles’, had radically changed their lifestyles. This connection between mind and body has never been encouraged by Western cultures, but it is at the heart of Eastern medicine.

CURED by Jeffrey Rediger (Penguin £16.99, 400 pp)

Physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health are all irrevocably entwined and, just as they can combine to make us ill, so they can sometimes combine to make us better.

If you’re unconvinced by how powerful the mind can be in generating physical wellbeing, consider the placebo effect. Rediger recalls the case of a Mr Wright in 1957, who, dying from cancer of the lymph nodes, begged his doctors to try experimental drug Krebiozen.

As soon as they did, his astonished doctor reported that his tumours ‘melted like snowballs on a hot stove’. Two months later, reports circulated that this supposed miracle drug was a fake.

Mr Wright immediately relapsed, but as he lay on his deathbed, his doctor told him the reports were wrong and he had a double-strength version of the serum. He injected it. The tumours vanished again. But the doctor had injected only water.

Rediger wants Western doctors to embrace the ‘medicine of hope’.

He isn’t trying to dissuade us from seeking medical intervention. He accepts that, more often than not, there is no simple, non-medical equation; that ‘eat right’ plus ‘fall in love’ does not usually add up to a cure for cancer, or any of the other conditions that his spontaneous remission patients overcame.

But how reassuring it is, especially in these horribly uncertain times, to know that sometimes it does.

Ollie Robinson says he can succeed ‘role model’ James Anderson when England seamer retires

England prospect Ollie Robinson says fellow seamer James Anderson has been a “role model” for him – and that he hopes to take the 37-year-old’s Test place when he eventually retires.

Sussex paceman Robinson has been named in England’s 55-man back-to-training group for the summer, after taking 137 wickets across the last two seasons in County Championship Division Two.

The 26-year-old worked with Anderson – England’s all-time leading Test wicket-taker – at a bowling camp in South Africa in late 2019 and says the veteran’s work ethic has inspired him.

“Being with Jimmy in South Africa this winter showed me a new way forward, seeing someone at the top of their game and how hard they still work,” Robinson told Sky Sports News.

“I think most English bowlers around the country look up to Jimmy – he has taken that many wickets and played for that many years that it’s hard to look past that.

“He’s definitely someone I look at as a role model and hopefully in the future I can almost take his place and fill the void. That’s definitely what I am aiming for.

“Ever since I started I have wanted to play Test cricket for England so the goal is red-ball cricket for me and my stats lean more that way as well.

“It’s very pleasing to get the nod – it’s something I have been working hard for for a few years. It’s always nice to get the recognition especially after a good couple of years in county cricket.”

Robinson’s stellar domestic form, including 63 scalps at 16.44 for Sussex in the 2019 Championship, saw him travel to Australia with England Lions this winter.

Australia was a really good tour for me and the group and we were raring to go so it’s a shame we haven’t been able to play cricket and push on ever further. Bowling the ball for the dog is not quite the same!

Ollie Robinson

The seamer picked up seven wickets in the match at the MCG as the Lions recorded a first-ever win over Australia A – but has now not bowled competitively since March due to the coronavirus lockdown, although he has returned to individual training at Hove.

“After having 10 weeks off as a bowler it is quite challenging getting the workload back in quickly. It will take time,” added Robinson, who also revealed when he may be able to test himself against batsmen in the nets.

“I bowled 16 overs last week and my body felt quite good so hopefully it only takes a couple of weeks [to regain peak fitness] and then it’s about maintaining that and hoping the body stays good for a long period of time.

“We had a chat on Zoom, about 60 of us, setting out each phase [of England’s back-to-training programme].

I have two sets of stumps, six balls and my own markers. No one is allowed to touch any of my kit – it’s almost like you are your own coach. But it’s just nice to be back bowling and back outside

Ollie Robinson

“I think it was three weeks on your own and then, Government-permitting, training in small groups, so the Sussex lads can join up with the Kent boys or the Surrey lads and do a bit of bat and ball.

“I think England are going to pick a smaller squad in five weeks and hopefully I will be involved in that.”
