EMILY PRESCOTT: Movie star and hardcore fitness fan Kate Beckinsale, 50, who hits the gym six times a week turns her trailer kitchen into makeshift exercise area

Must read

Action movie star Kate Beckinsale is a hardcore fitness fan, hitting the gym six times a week. 

But even that doesn’t seem to be enough for the 50-year-old, who turned the kitchen in her trailer into a makeshift exercise area for an impromptu extra workout. 

The British actress, worth an estimated £20million, shared a video with her six million Instagram followers last week showing her performing strength exercises against the kitchen cabinets while wearing a pink sports bra and tracksuit bottoms.

However she deleted it some time later. 

This budget workout was quite a change for Kate, pictured left at a Cannes gala event last year.

Her vigorous exercise regime often involves workouts using a weighted sled, which burn up to 100 calories a minute, and in 2019 her personal trainer revealed she hits the gym six days a week to train for an hour non-stop. 

The actress is recovering from a tear in her oesophagus earlier this year, which required a six-week hospital stay. 

She is in Italy filming her next movie, Stolen Girl, based on a true story of child abduction.

No 10’s Cleo faces a new Partygate

Boris Johnson’s ex-aide Cleo Watson has had to apologise to friends expecting a invitation to the launch party of her second political bonkbuster, Cleavage.

Cleo, nicknamed The Gazelle during her time in No 10, had to soothe feelings hurt by the apparent snub by explaining the election had put the kibosh on her planned bash.

‘You are exactly the people I would like to have invited had I been able to have a book launch,’ she told them. ‘Regrettably this isn’t the only party I’ve been wrongly suspected of having.’

This might be awkward! Ellie Goulding has been signed up to sing at a charity bash Zac Goldsmith is on the committee for – despite the former close friends severing contact earlier this year. 

The pop star was booked for Thursday’s Ormeley Dinner without the Tory peer realising.

Ellie broke off their friendship when she began dating a surf instructor. Zac is now seeing Hum Fleming, the great-niece of 007 creator Ian. 

A source says: ‘Zac’s laid-back but it doesn’t sound like he’s thrilled with this.’ 

Expecting… her own fashion line!

She went public with her pregnancy with a grand fashion statement at New York’s Met Gala last month.

Now model Adwoa Aboah could be set to launch her own maternity line with H&M, the retailer that created the ruffled red skirt and crop top which revealed her baby bump to the world, right.

A source close to the 32-year-old Top Boy star told me she was in talks with the high street chain, saying: ‘She’s loving being pregnant and adores showing off her bump. The H&M team have discussed a capsule collection modelled by her for their maternity line.’

Adwoa – who also spearheads a mental health charity, Gurls Talk – is expecting her first child with US skater Daniel Wheatley and the new range could be ready as soon as this summer.

Fashion designer Alice Temperley might as well change her name to Dr Dolittle as it seems there is no end to her rescuing animals. 

Last year, I revealed that Alice – a favourite of the Princess of Wales – had adopted a field mouse, and now I can report she took in a wandering peacock after it chased her car. 

After a brief stay chez Alice, the peacock flew back to its owners across the field.

Rapper Professor Green looks to have rekindled his romance with former fiancee Karima McAdams – five months after they split. 

The pair, who dated for five years and who have a three-year-old son, looked happier than ever at the opening of Maison Diptyque store in London. 

Professor Green – real name Stephen Manderson – was formerly married to Made In Chelsea’s Millie Mackintosh. 

Socialite artist Nettie Wakefield is backing a campaign to stop tech giants Facebook and Instagram from using people’s photographs on social media to ‘develop and improve’ its AI tools.

Although there is a little-noticed option to opt out of the scheme, Nettie, left, tells me: ‘Apparently AI is automatically being trained on everything we do on the social media platforms.’

It is certainly a terrifying prospect for some and so Nettie – whose past loves include Poldark heart-throb Aidan Turner and TV presenter Alex Zane, is railing against the idea.

How? By taking to Instagram, of course!

Nat’s ticket to hide

She’s used to all eyes being on her so I wonder why Natalie Portman was decidedly camera-shy on her visit to the Beatles Museum in Liverpool?

The Hollywood star banned staff, including the museum’s owner Roag Best – the brother of original Beatles drummer Pete Best – from taking photos of her at the venue. 

This also meant that the 42-year-old couldn’t be added to the museum’s wall of fame-style gallery of famous faces.

The museum’s social media page later called out the Black Swan actress, right, who has appeared in one of Sir Paul McCartney’s music videos, for her reticence, prompting fans to criticise her actions.

The owners of Drayton House in Northamptonshire, where black comedy Saltburn was shot, have complained of the unwanted attention the film has brought.

But Fiona, Countess of Carnarvon and chatelaine of Highclere Castle – aka Downton Abbey – has little sympathy. Rather sensibly, Lady Carnarvon says: ‘If you’re doing something like a film, then obviously it might well bring some attention – so if you don’t want any attention, maybe you shouldn’t have done the film. It’s just having that logical progression of thought process.’

The cast and crew of Downton have again descended on Highclere to shoot a third film, much to the joy of Fiona. 

She gushes about the catering coffee cart and tells me: ‘It’s lovely to have everybody back.’
