Interview 🎙️ | Are Cam and Jules of #MAFS really as smitten in real life? @francescasteele sits down with them to find out…
Cynics may be inclined to believe that the couple is more contrived than their TV narrative may suggest. When they appear on Zoom, however, they are bubbly and genuine
It’s three years since they met and they have since tied the knot for real. They live together in Sydney and have a five-month-old son, Oliver
“It wasn’t love at first sight,” Jules says, laughing. “Cam wasn’t someone I’d have looked at twice in the street. We weren’t what each other ordered. But the experiment was about being open. From the moment we met it felt relaxed”
They weren’t asked to stage anything on #MAFSAustralia, they say, although of course cameras were filming for 12 hours a day, producers checking in on every feeling. Sometimes after filming until 4am, the producers would still knock on their doors at 8am
On one occasion Jules had a meltdown, sobbing after one of the dreaded dinner parties. “It was just such a toxic environment. It was like being bullied at high school or something,” she says
Do they still see Michael and Martha, the other couple still going strong from season six? Jules looks unimpressed. “No,” she says
They do still see Cyrell (“her heart is in the right place”), Cyrell’s “ex-husband” Nic (“he’s a really good bloke”) and Heidi, the radio host with the corkscrew curls who was a bridesmaid at their real wedding
What is a surprise is their newly acquired affection for Ines. Read more:…

“It’s all the real thing,” Tom Cruise insists, looking into the camera.

Except the viral TikTok videos of him are not real: they’re “deepfakes”. But what is a “deepfake”, and why are they so worrying?…
Deepfake technology first emerged in 2017. It is able to place politicians, celebrities or just any normal person into a video they never participated in, making them say or do things that never happened 💻
The key tool used in deepfakes is machine learning. A person will feed a computer programme hours of real video footage and images of a person to give the machine an understanding of what that person looks like from different angles and under various lights

How worried should we be about the Manaus variant? @whippletom investigates 🔍
The key question is not whether the Manaus variant contains worrying mutations; it does. The key question is whether it can spread those mutations here. So far at least, we have good reason to be hopeful it won’t, says @whippletom
Why? One answer, which has become something of a public health mantra, is that even if the vaccines don’t stop infection they will provide strong protection against severe disease 💉

What’s to become of Michael Gove?

Boris Johnson’s ally-turned-Judas, who now sits beside him as a key power player in government, appears to be facing another fall from grace. But is it that simple?…
Ever since Boris Johnson entered Downing Street with a central pledge to “get Brexit done” he has charged Michael Gove with the practicalities of delivering it.

Yet in recent weeks Gove has seen that power stripped and handed to others.
Lord Frost, Johnson’s erstwhile Brexit negotiator, has now assumed Gove’s responsibilities for negotiating the UK’s future relationship with the EU - leaving the cabinet minister increasingly powerless

Emma Coronel Aispuro, the wife of the Mexican drug lord Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán, is now in a high-security prison in Colorado. Her arrest at Dulles international airport was the latest move by the US government against the Sinaloa cartel

Come June 21, assuming everything remains on target, restrictions in England will be largely at an end.

But will the country be truly back to normal, or to a new normal? And if the latter, what will that mean? @whippletom on what might happen…

Offices have changed, workers have changed their expectations, employers have learnt just what is possible over Zoom. Pret might well recover, but home working is here to stay

One of the reviews that needs to be concluded before June 21 is into social distancing and, specifically, the 1m rule.

If venues have to abide by the rule, it could well make many of them unprofitable
