Bob Odenkirk rushed to hospital after on-set collapse

Bob Odenkirk was rushed to hospital after collapsing on the set of 'Better Call Saul'.

The 58-year-old actor was shooting the drama series - in which he plays Jimmy McGill aka Saul Goodman - on Tuesday (27.07.21) on the Sony lot in Culver City, California, when he suddenly fell down.

According to TMZ, Bob was surrounded by crew members who tried to help him, before they called for an ambulance at around 11.34am and he was transferred to hospital.

The 'Breaking Bad' star is still receiving medical treatment, but no further information about the actor's condition or reason for his collapse is known at the moment.

Bob was busy filming the sixth and final season of the 'Breaking Bad' spin-off series, for which he has received four Emmy Award nominations for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series.

The remaining episodes are expected to air early next year, almost two years since the fifth season hit screens.

But during that time, fans were able to see Bob - who has two sons with wife Naomi Yomtov - in action movie 'Nobody' and he recently admitted he expected people to laugh when he revealed his interest in a role in the genre.

He said: "Listen. When I suggested to my manager, 'I think I could do an action movie', I expected him to laugh. But he did not laugh.

"Then I expected him to get laughed at when he ran it up the flagpole here in Hollywood. But people responded like, 'Yeah, that'd be cool.'"

Bob spent two years preparing for the part of Hutch 'Nobody' Mansell with stunt actor Daniel Bernhardt but refused to consider "bulking up" as he didn't want to resemble a "superhero".

He explained: "I was totally against bulking up.

"I didn't want to look like a superhero. I've had friends who do these superhero movies, and they do that kind of weight training, and it's all about their biceps and all that s***.

"I said, 'I want to do my own fighting, but I also want to look like a dad.'"

Rag'n'Bone Man 'rekindles romance with Zoe Beardsall' after split

Rag’n’Bone Man has reportedly rekindled his romance with Zoe Beardsall after separating due to his hectic schedule. 

The 36-year-old music star – whose real name is Rory Graham – and Zoe dated for almost a year before they decided to go their separate ways last month.

But it now seems they are back together and giving their romance a second chance.

A source said to The Sun: 'He was so busy with the release of his album, Life By Misadventure, and they grew apart, but not long after they ended it, Rory realised he wasn’t prepared to let Zoe go.

'They’re officially back together now and have been working their way around any issues that come up with their schedules. Rory says Zoe makes him feel so happy and it’s clear he is the only man for her.

'To celebrate being together again they are planning on going on a family holiday with the kids they each have from previous relationships.

'They want to spend some quality time together and Rory is determined they will never again struggle like they did before.'

MailOnline have reached out to his reps for comment.

The Human hitmaker has a three-year-old son called Reuben with Beth Rouy while Zoe has three children. She was quick to unfollow the star on social media after they split.

It was first reported that the duo had started dating in January, 13 months after his split from wife Beth in 2019 following just six months of marriage. 

A source said to the publication at the time: 'Things have been full-on for Rory around the release of his album and everything, so it has been difficult to spend a lot of time together. 

'It hasn’t worked out between them and they have called things off.'

The insider also claimed that the singer’s decision to temporarily relocate to Cornwall caused the breakdown of their relationship.

They added: 'Rory has now gone down to Cornwall without her for some time out to reflect, after what has been quite a hectic few months.

'It seems as though that is it for them, which is a real shame. But they are both busy parents so it was always a juggling act to see each other.'

In January, Rory and the mother-of-three were seen out together after they were rumoured to be dating. The Sun reported that Zoe is a waitress at a cafe near his home. 

A source told the publication: 'Rory's fame has been a bit strange to him because while he loves making music, he's a regular guy and wants to have a normal life.

'With Zoe they just really get along and like each other. Neither of them have had an easy ride when it comes to ­relationships but they've become really close.  

'They both have kids too, so they feel like they're on the same page.' 

It is not clear when the former couple started seeing each other, however Zoe shared snaps of them together to her Instagram account throughout December.  

It was revealed in November 2019 that the singer and his wife Beth, who had been together for 10 years, had split six months after getting married. 

The couple are said to have parted ways 'amicably' after marrying at Lewes Registry Office in East Sussex on 2 May 2019, shunning traditional wedding attire for tracksuits.

A source told The Sun at the time: 'It's a great shame, but these things happen. Everyone is staying amicable, and they have a son together who is their top priority.' 

The critically-acclaimed artist had not publicly announced their engagement and has kept his personal life mostly out of the spotlight. 

In February 2017, Rag'n'Bone Man took home the BRIT Award for British Breakthrough as well as the gong for BRITs Critic's Choice Award.

His breakthrough track Human made it to number two in the UK charts in 2016 and won a Brit Award in 2018. 

Only recently, the star topped the UK album charts with his new record Life By Misadventure reaching number one.  

The album, which features popular single Anywhere Away From Here, has been met with rave reviews since its April release.

The musician delighted fans when he performed hit single Anywhere Away From Here featuring P!nk, at this year's BRITs.

Rag 'n' Bone Man and P!nk closed the star-studded ceremony in May, performing their hit Anywhere Away From Here, with the latter joining remotely from the US.

Despite his huge success, fame doesn't appear to have change the star, who previously said: 'I don't see all the attention as pressure. I'm just a normal guy who loves to sing. I'm just happy that people now want to listen to me.'

In May, the star said he would love for his three-year-old son Reuben to 'go into music' and joked that he is 'winging it' as a parent after splitting from his wife. 

Talking about his son's love of music, the musician said Reuben has recently started asking to go to the studio with him and carries a harmonica in his pocket when he goes to nursery.

Ben Stokes to take indefinite break from all cricket to 'prioritise his mental well-being'

The all-rounder will initially miss the upcoming Test series against India in a move fully supported by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB).

Managing director of England Men's Cricket, Ashley Giles, said: "Ben has shown tremendous courage to open up about his feelings and wellbeing.

"Our primary focus has always been and will continue to be the mental health and welfare of all of our people.

"The demands on our athletes to prepare and play elite sport are relentless in a typical environment, but the ongoing pandemic has acutely compounded this.

"Spending significant amounts of time away from family, with minimal freedoms, is extremely challenging.

"The cumulative effect of operating almost continuously in these environments over the last 16 months has had a major impact on everyone's wellbeing.

"Ben will be given as long as he needs, and we look forward to seeing him playing cricket for England in the future."

Stokes took a period of compassionate leave between August and October last year to be with his father Ged, who died in December.

He was rested for two Tests in Sri Lanka in January and missed the home Test series against New Zealand in June after breaking his finger in the Indian Premier League.

Former England star Kevin Pietersen told Sky Sports: "He's a fabulous cricketer - one of the best in the world at the moment.

"From my side I hope he's ok. He obviously lost his dad. There's a lot of things that have happened to Ben Stokes in the last couple of years.

"I don't want to comment too much on it because we don't know what the issue is, however all I know is that I want him to be ok."

Mental health in elite sport has hit the headlines in recent days with gymnast Simone Biles pulling out of a number of Olympic events due to concerns.

Tennis star Naomi Osaka cited pressure as one of the factors in her defeat to world number 42 Marketa Vondrousova.

She had recently taken time out of the sport to focus on her mental wellbeing.

Irish rower’s brilliant response to winning an Olympic gold medal goes viral

Coaches and families of Olympians may have hit headlines for their over-the-top celebrations during the Tokyo games, but a low-key statement by gold-medal winner Paul O’Donovan has delighted fans.

The Irish rower brought home the country’s first ever gold medal in the lightweight double sculls along with teammate Fintan McCarthy on Thursday.

In a BBC interview following the win, the pair were asked: “Paul O’Donovan, Fintan McCarthy, gold medal winning athletes. How does that sound?”

“It’s alright, yeah, yeah, yeah. You can’t complain about it really,” Mr O’Donovan replied in a hilariously downplayed answer.

“I wouldn’t go around introducing myself like that though,” he added.

His response has, naturally, been widely shared online - prompting a Rio 2016 Olympics interview with Mr O’Donovan and his brother to be reshared.

In that interview, the pair discussed winning silver in the lightweight double skulls and opened by asking “What’s the craic?” before joking about Rio being superimposed in the background.

Arnold Schwarzenegger sits outdoors with his pet donkey and dog

Arnold Schwarzenegger sits outdoors with his pet donkey and dog

He has a host of four-legged friends to keep him company at his Los Angeles home. 

And Arnold Schwarzenegger was joined by his pet donkey Lulu and dog Dutch for a social media snap on Thursday as he worked on his digital newsletter outdoors while counting down the hours until his 74th birthday. 

The Terminator star sat down in a leather chair with a cigar placed on a table next to him as his curious pets leaned over to 'help' with his work. 

Arnold was seen wearing glasses, a grey T-shirt and shorts as he appeared to be talking to his furry pals.  

He captioned the Instagram photo: 'Getting some help finishing up my newsletter so I can send it out to celebrate my birthday tomorrow. Sign up at the link in my bio!'

The actor lives with his cute donkey, miniature horse Whiskey, dogs Noodle, Cherry and Dutch, and girlfriend Heather Milligan in a sprawling mansion in the Pacific Palisades neighbourhood.

He is the father to Katherine, 31, Christina, 30, Patrick, 27, Christopher, 23, and Joseph Baena, 23, as well as the grandparent to Lyla Maria Pratt, the daughter of Katherine and actor Chris Pratt.

While appearing remotely on Jimmy Kimmel Live in April, he discussed becoming a grandfather for the first time after his daughter and her husband Chris 41, welcomed their baby girl last August.

'Fantastic,' Arnold said of being a grandfather. 'The only thing is it makes me feel old.'

'It's really great having a grandchild. It's a beautiful, beautiful baby. Baby Lyla. I'm very proud of Katherine and Chris and they're doing really great together as parents,' the veteran actor added. 

Jimmy, 53, noted that Arnold has farm animals roaming around his house and predicted that Lyla was going to go 'crazy' when she realises her grandfather lives in a 'petting zoo'.

'Oh, she has already been over here several times at the house and she's sat on top of Lulu and Whiskey and I think she's going to be a great horseback rider,' Arnold said, referencing his pets. 

Jimmy then asked Arnold if he's done any baby-sitting or changing diapers with Lyla.

'I did all of that when I had kids,' he responded. 'When my kids were growing up, I participated and it was a lot of fun to do that. But I have never changed diapers on Lyla because I think that Katherine is the expert gatekeeper. 

'Whenever you touch the baby she says, ''Oh my god, oh my god, don't hold her like this''. I say, ''Katherine, come on now. I've held enough children in my hands.'' 

'I say, ''I know exactly what I'm doing, I'm an expert at that stuff''. She just freaks out. I think it's natural,' Arnold said. 'It's fun,' he added.
