Nicola McLean managed to shock Piers Morgan today after revealing that she has conversations with her 12-year-old son about her fake boobs. Piers couldn't believe this and questioned that he was too young to talking about her plastic surgery. However the former Celebrity Big Brother star, 36, insisted that her son should know about plastic surgery and what is real and fake. Mum-of-two Nicola appeared on Good Morning Britain today to debate that Love Island gave its viewers unrealistic expectations of partners and relationships. She said: "I love Love Island - I'm a big fan - but yes I've got a 12-year-old son and I do think that watching a show like that, not that he does, but of his age group people are watching it... I do think that it is giving them the idea that you have to look a certain way in order to find love and 'be beautiful'.

DANGEROUS fake toys are on the rise, industry experts warned today - putting kids at risk of injury, cancer and even death. Counterfeits from cheaper collectables like Fingerlings to fancier toys like Hatchimals are flooding into Britain. The amount of fakes coming to the UK are up 12 per cent in a year, the British Toy and Hobby Association said at the start of London Toy Fair today. They cost the industry £400million last year - and played a part in shrinking the British toy market by 3 per cent. Toys are subject to stringent regulations in order to ensure they are safe for children. Also they are more likely to break, making them a choking risk to youngsters. In the past they were sold at car boot sales and markets but now crooks are using sites like Amazon and eBay - who critics say are not doing enough to crack down.

This season's Nach Baliye has been one of the most controversial ones. The theme, i.e., the inclusion of ex-couples is one of the reasons for the controversy. Initially, it was Vishal Aditya Singh and Madhurima Tuli's fights that grabbed headlines. Post eviction, Urvashi Dholakia lashed out at the makers for her and Anuj Sachdeva's unfair eviction, which also made headlines. Recently, the show was in the news for Natasha Stankovic's unprofessional behaviour. It has to be recalled that Natasa was teary-eyed and walked out of the stage when Raveena Tandon asked Aly and Natasa as to what went wrong (Natasa had forgotten her steps while performing). This didn't go well with Ahmed Khan, who lashed out at her. Aly too was upset. According to a Spotboye report, in the upcoming episode, Aly will be seen clarifying the previous act. He says that they, especially Natasa was misunderstood. He also confessed that he can't see Natasa crying. Read to know more!

On Instagram, manufacturing fake followers is a ubiquitous tactic, one that's churned out at least 95 million near-perfect human forgeries for you to brush past in the digital hallways, unaware. You can buy them in droves from dozens of services online, or even from a coin-operated vending machine created by artist Dries Depoorter. He calls his fame dispenser "Quick Fix": a wall-mounted box with an Arduino and a keyboard, where visitors can type in their social media handles and select what faux honorific they'd like to receive—likes or follows, starting at just one euro, delivered instantly. In Helsinki, where the machine debuted, "Quick Fix" was a revelation. "Even the young people didn't know this was possible, but they wanted it,” Depoorter says. "In a city, I think it would fit really well next to a soda machine." Related Stories Misinformation Instagram Now Fact-Checks, but Who Will Do the Checking?

Like much of the internet, online reviews are often fake. No matter the platform—Amazon, TripAdvisor, Yelp, or another—no matter the subject, where user reviews are public, fakery usually follows. The practice has surged in popularity in recent years as retailers scramble to capitalize on consumers’ love of ecommerce. Saoud Khalifah, CEO of the fraudulent-review tracking company FakeSpot, says the number of companies padding their online ratings using reviews generated by bots, ghostwriters, or other schemes has increased dramatically over the past four years. “When I started [looking into] this in 2015, it wasn’t as big as it is today,” said Khalifah. “Today, it has reached epidemic proportions—whether you’re looking at Sephora, Walmart, Amazon—it’s like a plague right now.” Commissioners Rohit Chopra and Rebecca Slaughter of the Federal Trade Commission say it’s about to get a lot worse, and they know who … [Read more...] about The FTC Fosters Fake Reviews, Its Own Commissioners Say
