Sports Illustrated model Brooks Nader shocks fans as she wears see-through dress to awards show – The Sun

SPORTS Illustrated model Brooks Nader shocked fans after she appeared at an awards show in a see-through dress.

The 23-year-old turned up at the mag's Sportsperson of the Year bash in New York last night in a practically transparent gown and high-heels.

She posed on the red carpet with her whole body – and the nude pants she was wearing underneath the dress – visible.

Many fans pointed out that she was wearing so little she may as well have been naked, with one asking: "Why bother with the 'dress?'"

Another wrote online: "That's not a dress, that is a clear shower curtain."

A third said: "An amazing body but would have been sexier in a modest dress, sorry."

However, plenty of her followers were delighted, posting the likes of "SLAYYYY🔥" and "You look SO BOMB ❤️🙌🏻" on her social media accounts.

Brooks won a modelling career through Sports Illustrated magazine after she was "hand-picked" during a search, becoming its 2020 'rookie'.

The prestigious Sports Illustrated sportsperson of the year award was won last night by US women’s World Cup star Megan Rapinoe, 34.

House Democrats Unveil Two Articles Of Impeachment Against Donald Trump

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and six Democratic committee chairs unveiled two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, one for abuse of power and one for obstruction of Congress.

Before a row of four American flags in the Rayburn Room at the Capitol, the Democrats announced the next steps in the impeachment process, which was launched in September with an inquiry into President Donald Trump’s effort to get the president of Ukraine to investigate a political rival, Joe Biden, and his son Hunter.

Broadcast and cable networks covered the announcement, as dozens of reporters and photographers packed into the Rayburn Room, notable for its Gilbert Stuart portrait of George Washington, as House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) said that they would be charging Trump “with committing high crimes and misdemeanors.”

“Our president holds the ultimate public trust,” Nadler said. “When he betrays that trust and puts himself before the country, he endangers the Constitution, he endangers the Constitution, and he endangers our national security.”

He sounded the alarm over the president’s conduct, albeit he did not get into the details of whether Trump sought a quid pro quo with Ukraine. Rather, he framed Trump’s actions as an effort to get a foreign country to interfere with the next election to serve his own personal benefit.

“The integrity of our next election is at risk from a president who has already sought foreign interference in the 2016 and 2020 elections and who consistently puts himself above country,” Nadler said. “That’s why we must act now.”

He said that the House Judiciary Committee would meet later this week to take up the articles.

Republicans have repeatedly claimed that Pelosi and other top Democrats were trying to speed impeachment through the House, refusing to wait until courts rule on whether Trump administration figures have to comply with a bevy of subpoenas.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) said that waiting for court adjudication would take many months — and suggested that stonewalling was part of a strategy on the part of the Trump White House to delay impeachment until after the election.

“The argument of, ‘Why don’t you just wait?,’ amounts to this: Why don’t you just let him cheat in the next election?” Schiff said.

Pelosi and the committee chairs did not take questions. She called the moment a “somber” occasion, but also is determined to show that the House leadership is not delaying other work as it pursues impeachment. Later on Tuesday, she was to hold a press conference on the next steps in the USMCA, the update to the North American Free Trade Agreement that is one of Trump’s signature legislative goals this year.

Less than an hour after the articles of impeachment were unveiled, Trump tweeted, “Nadler just said that I ‘pressured Ukraine to interfere in our 2020 Election.’ Ridiculous, and he knows that is not true. Both the President & Foreign Minister of Ukraine said, many times, that there ‘WAS NO PRESSURE.’ Nadler and the Dems know this, but refuse to acknowledge!” He also tweeted that the impeachment effort was a “witch hunt.”

Earlier on Tuesday, Trump tweeted, “To Impeach a President who has proven through results, including producing perhaps the strongest economy in our country’s history, to have one of the most successful presidencies ever, and most importantly, who has done NOTHING wrong, is sheer Political Madness!”

But even he turned to the USMCA and its prospects for passage.

“Looking like very good Democrat support for USMCA. That would be great for our Country!” he wrote.

The Grand Tour's James May cheats death as he crashes plane on the runway

The Grand Tour’s James May has revealed how he cheated death after crashing a plane on the runway.

The former Top Gear host and his co-presenters are no stranger to life-threatening accidents, with Richard Hammond ending up in a coma after losing control of a dragstar vehicle in 2002, and this brush with the Grim Reaper was a lucky escape.

Recalling the horror incident, James told Good Morning Britain presenters Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid: ‘I was being overconfident in strong crosswinds in a light aircraft and I thought I could sort this out and get it back, but I was wrong, so it ended upside down.’

‘It was freshly filled with fuel and it was all pouring out,’ he added. ‘We got out very quickly, but there was no fire which was just fortunate.’

‘There was another bloke with me and we were both pretty much unscathed,’ James continued. ‘I bashed my knees up and I was limping for a few days and he got hit on the ear by the flight case.’

When asked whether he thought he was a gonner, James replied: ‘No, as I was coming down, I thought, “I’ll get away with it.”

‘There’s a dangerous point when you’re flying airplanes when you’re ability climbs.’

We admire his confidence…

James, Richard and Jeremy Clarkson are set to return to our screens for The Grand Tour as season four is scheduled to drop in just three days time.

In a savage 30-second clip ahead of the show’s release, James admitted that he ‘didn’t want to be with’ his fellow co-stars as they began their journey on the waters in Vietnam.

‘The boat I chose was an old riverboat, I didn’t think about it that carefully,’ the host said, before going onto reveal how he came close to cheating death again in the series.

‘We were a bit too optimistic about that as well and it turns into a festival of terror.’

Good Morning Britain airs weekdays at 6am on ITV and James May: Our Man In Japan will be available on Amazon Prime Video on Friday 3 January, whileThe Grand Tour presents: Seamen will be available on Amazon Prime Video on Friday 13 December.

Sam Gowland boasts about his ‘home cinema’ – but fans can’t stop staring at his filthy SOCKS – The Sun

GEORDIE Shore star Sam Gowland was the butt of the joke as he flashed his new cinema room on Twitter – but fans were more bothered about his filthy footwear.

The MTV personality was accused of using his socks as "dusters" or items to mop up ex girlfriend "Chloe's tan", as the bright white accessories were covered in brown smears.

Sam, who split with on-off girlfriend Chloe earlier this year, looked eager to show his lavish chill room to as many people as possible.

He snapped a selfie which showed him wearing grey loungewear and sprawled on a snuggly jet black chair.

Sitting side profile, he made sure his huge TV screen – which was showing an Essex Eagles cricket match – was on full show.

In a clearly chuffed manner, he wrote: "Home cinema room done," followed by a green Emoji icon tick.

Sam would likely have expected a flurry of appreciation for his pricey new purchase yet instead feedback centred on his footwear.

One Twitter fan quipped: "State of them socks pal."

Another posted: "Run out of dusters in your house? Had to use your socks?"

A third giggled: "Teeth are whiter than his socks," while another pleaded: "Wash your socks!!"

One then surmised: "Spending money on a cinema room when you should spend it on some new socks sort it out lad."

Recently, fans questioned whether Chloe and Sam had reunited after they speculated they had seen her in his car.

Back in October, Chloe revealed she'd finally put an end to her on/off relationship with the former Love Island star, 24, after two years together.

However, fans are now worried the couple, who had bought a pad together, have reunited once again after Chloe, 24, shared an Instagram video from what appears to be inside her ex's car.

After the Geordie star uploaded a photo of herself in a DIY store today, a fan asked: "Is it sam taking these photos?"

Piers Morgan claims 'everyone needs a fat-shamer if you’re fat'

Good Morning Britain’s Piers Morgan has told audiences that ‘everyone needs a fat-shamer’ if they’re overweight.

The 54-year-old presenter made the comments during a debate about whether or not it is offensive to say the word fat and whether there should be a ban on phrases such as ‘it’s not over until the fat lady sings’.

Piers expressed his feelings as he discussed fitness expert guest Marvin Ambrosius’ incredible five stone weight loss – which he said was triggered by his low mental health rather than being the subject of cruel taunts.

‘We all need a bit of fat-shaming really,’ Piers began.

‘It would never work because I had to go to a negative place,’ Marvin claimed. ‘But that negative place for some people, they don’t have the strength to come out and that is not fair.’

‘Listen, every fat person who ends up losing weight and getting fit does so because of being shamed,’ Piers continued.

Clapping back, Marvin stated: ‘No, it was a personal choice and it was to do with having children, it was to do with getting older, it was to do with health. But it was also to do with the fact that I felt terrible, I literally didn’t want to leave my house.’

‘Because you were fat!’ Piers cried.

‘No, I wasn’t me,’ Marvin insisted.

But Piers didn’t back down on his opinion and went on to say that mental strength should be celebrated.

‘We’re living in a society where weakness is celebrated. We need to get to a place, I believe, where we start to celebrate mental strength and resilience. I think we should be celebrating positive strength, resilience…Get a grip Britain.’

Let’s acknowledge weakness, but also celebrate strength,’ offered co-host Susanna Reid.

‘Everyone needs a fat-shamer if you’re fat,’ Piers quipped.

Viewers had a lot to say about Piers’ remarks on Twitter, with one person slamming his opinions: ‘Please hush. I have the most debilitating illness which actively MAKES me fat. I take daily medication. Fat-shaming will NOT make my body work properly. Just THINK before you speak please.’

Echoing a similar sentiment, another scathed: ‘Be quiet Piers about fat shaming. You are so rude.’

Good Morning Britain airs weekdays at 6am on ITV.

Spoilers: Tracy and Paula's New Year passion confirmed in Corrie?

Tracy Barlow (Kate Ford) and Steve McDonald (Simon Gregson) have had their ups and downs in Coronation Street, but they’re certainly in a good place right now. However, in spite of this, it appears as if Tracy will risk it all for a one-night-stand in the coming episodes, as she sees the New Year in with a bang.

An argument ensues between Tracy and Steve when she discovers that he’s lied about Tim (Joe Duttine) being unwell so that he could evade having to take her to a gig. Heartbroken, Tracy storms out, and proceeds to get incredibly drunk.

The following morning, she awakes in the bed of another, and realises that she’s cheated on Steve. Desperate to keep her secret hidden, Tracy sneaks back into the flat but later Amy (Elle Mulvaney) notices the designer jacket she’s accidentally brought home with her, and grows suspicious as a result.

Later, Tracy meets up with the person she’s slept with to return said jacket, but Amy approaches and is horrified when she puts two-and-two together, and realises who her mum has slept with.

With it already having been confirmed that Tracy’s to sleep with Paula, could this mystery person, in fact, be the solicitor? It’s likely, given that — earlier in the same week — Tracy’s delighted when she manages to secure work experience for Amy at Paula’s office — which would explain why Amy’s so horrified when she realises who her mum has cheated on Steve with.

Regardless of said person’s identity, will Amy reveal all to her dad?

One to watch: Wednesday 1st January at 7:30pm on ITV.

“So in the end, we needed to come up with creative ways of still keeping her storyline alive,”

Speaking about the character’s final stages, she said: “Chronologically she’s a grandmother at this stage, with Bjorn’s children and everyone else.

“So it was an interesting journey as an actor to go through that final stage.

“You can see in the trailers that she buries her sword, that she kind of gives up being the shield maiden now.”

The actress revealed she “struggled” to portray the character’s strength after she stepped down as shield maiden.

Stranger Things season 4: Will Byers to become focus of new season with location change?

Stranger Things viewers were left stunned in the final episode of season three earlier this year. Jim Hopper (played by David Harbour) found himself in a dramatic position, which saw him blown up by a power generator which tore a hole through to the Upside Down.

Since then, fans have been attempting to decipher whether Hopper was in fact killed, or merely transported somewhere else in the world.

This theory was brought to light after the post-credits scene saw native Russian soldiers speaking about “The American” before revealing a lethal Demodog in captivity.

Following this cryptic event, fans were shortly after greeted with a visceral trailer for season four, which showed off the new logo set in the Upside Down.

While the announcement of the show’s fourth season was exciting and welcomed by the community, it was certainly confusing also.

  • Stranger Things season 4 Netflix release date, cast, trailer, plot

The trailer – which featured the Upside Down extensively – left viewers pondering whether the fourth season would feature the evil plane of existence exclusively.

Recently, the Stranger Things writers’ Twitter account saw them responding to a number of questions regarding the new season.

One of the questions saw them being asked: “What’s with the new location?”

To which they responded: “What do you mean? It’s pretty easy to figure out.”

Fans of the show instantly began theorising what mysterious meaning could be hidden within this clue.

While one fan suggested: “Russia?” another replied: “I honestly thing it’s the Upside Down.”

Meanwhile another viewer proposed the fourth season would be set in an entirely new location.

At the end of season three Will Byers (Noah Schnapp) and his family moved away to another town with Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) in tow.

And fans believe this is where the next season will be set. But will it mean the show will focus more on Will than anything else?

But recently, fans found themselves a little disappointed when the Stranger Things writers posted about Hopper’s fate.

After yet another question about whether Hopper was alive or dead, they gave a brutal response. 

They cruelly posted: “Hopper is gone,” leaving fans devastated by the announcement.


  • Stranger Things season 4: Eleven’s makeover reveals huge powers clue

Hopper has been the backbone of the show for so long, so his return has been highly anticipated. 

But with his return uncertain, could he truly be gone for good?
