Welsh rugby legend Gareth Thomas hugs husband Stephen at Ironman Wales after HIV

Gareth Thomas, who came out as gay in 2009, yesterday revealed he kept his HIV status a secret for years over fears he would be 'treated like a leper' (still from Twitter video bottom right). The 45-year-old, who is affectionately known as Alfie, also revealed he has remarried and his husband, a man known only as Stephen, 56 (pictured inset today), does not have the virus. Despite the emotional revelation, he said he is 'fitter now than when he played rugby' and before he was diagnosed with the condition. After becoming the first major British sports star to come out as HIV-positive yesterday, he began the gruelling Ironman Wales triathlon, which began with a two-mile swim in the early hours this morning. As he finished the swim section in just under an hour and a half, the former rugby player clambered onto his bike for a 112-mile cycle. After the bike stretch he was seen in tears as he was hugged by husband Stephen (main), with parents Barry, 69, and Yvonne, 70, cheering him on from the sidelines as he faced the final marathon section. He was greeted with cries of 'Come on Alfie' and 'Go Gareth' as he emerged triumphant from the first two legs of the race. Meanwhile, Prince William (pictured with him in 2007 top right) tweeted his support, describing Thomas as 'Courageous as ever - legend on the pitch and legend off it. You have our support Gareth. W.'

Boris Johnson has a 'landing zone' to bring in a Brexit deal insists Cabinet minister Steve Barclay as he suggests Brussels is ready to be 'creative and flexible' to avoid a No Deal departure next month 

Brexit minister Steve Barclay (top) made an upbeat assessment of Boris Johnson's chances of striking a Brexit deal with Brussels today. He also revealed he will meet EU chief negotiator Michel Barnier (inset) tomorrow, while the Prime Minister (bottom) is holding talks with outgoing European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker in Luxembourg. But his claim comes after obstacles were seemingly placed in the way of a deal. On Friday Mr Johnson's allies in the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) dismissed claims they are ready to accept a watered down backstop to get a Brexit deal. The EU has also cast doubt on the rate of progress, first played-up by Boris Johnson last week. Speaking on Sky's Ridge on Sunday Mr Barclay said: 'We can see a landing zone in terms of a future deal but there is significant work still to do so the talks tomorrow will be an important step.'

Four senior members of the European Research Group are said to be softening in their opposition to the deal, but chairman Steve Baker (pictured) said he won't vote for any old rubbish.

Tragic images show Judy Garland in the months leading up to her death of a drug overdose

Once one of the most revered actresses on the planet, Garland was broke, addicted to pills, sex obsessed and suicidal when she was found dead from a barbiturates overdose in London in 1969 at the age of 47. In her final months, the Wizard of Oz actress married her fifth husband, Mickey Deans, became embroiled in a bitter legal battle over a performance contract and delivered several barely-coherent performances at a London night club that were described as an 'emotional car crash'. Photographs from that turbulent time show Garland smiling alongside Deans as they cut the cake at their wedding and dazzling press photographers in elaborate stage-ready ensembles. The images were unearthed ahead of the biopic Judy, in which Renee Zellweger portrays Garland's struggle to reclaim her career as her world crumbled around her.

Courtney Love claims Prince Andrew turned up at her house at 1am 'looking for sex'

Singer Courtney Love claims Prince Andrew rang the bell of her Hollywood home 'looking for sex' after being introduced by disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein (inset). In her 2007 book, Dirty Blonde: The Diaries of Courtney Love, the rocker published a picture of her with the Queen's second son. The 2000 meeting saw Prince Andrew (right, leaving Balmoral with the Queen today) acting 'very flirtatious' after arriving at her home unannounced with a protection officer, she claimed. Love made the Duke of York tea from a pot with his mother's face on it, according to a friend of Love. After chatting on the sofa for around 45 minutes the prince reportedly left. The pair were pictured meeting in 2000 at the premiere of the How The Grinch Stole Christmas film in Universal City, California (left).

Bathroom where Maurizio Cattelan gold toilet stolen from Blenheim Palace pictured

The golden toilet (pictured at Blenheim before inset), entitled 'America', had been plumbed into the stately Oxfordshire home (today inset) for visitors to use after an exhibition by Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan opened there on Friday. Cattelan, known for his provocative sculptures, arranged for the toilet to be moved to the palace, which is also the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill, in the same way he did at the Guggenheim Museum in New York in 2016, when 100,000 people queued to use it. But the toilet, valued at $5million, was stolen in the early hours of Saturday, leaving the artist and Blenheim bosses devastated and the bathroom in tatters (main). Chief executive Dominic Hare said he hopes the 'stupid and pointless' act of stealing the toilet will 'immortalise' the work of the artist - as he defended the stately home's 'sophisticated security system' and insisted it was insured. Cattelan denied staging the burglary in a Banksy-style prank, telling the New York Times: 'I wish it was a prank. Who's so stupid to steal a toilet?'

Liberal Democrats vote to ignore the referendum and STOP Brexit if they win the next

Delegates at the party conference in Bournemouth this afternoon voted overwhelmingly to support a motion to revoke Article 50 if it takes power (man picture). The move would stop Brexit in its tracks without the need for a second referendum. Jo Swinson's party was previously campaigning for a second Brexit referendum, but it has now pivoted to out-and-out support for ignoring the 2016 referendum. The motion says a Liberal Democrat majority government would be 'recognised as an unequivocal mandate to revoke Article 50 and for the UK to stay in the EU'. 'The policy we are debating at conference today is very clear,' Ms Swinson (inset right) told the BBC's Andrew Marr Show today. 'If the Liberal Democrats win a majority at the next election, if people put into government, as a majority government, the 'Stop Brexit' party, then stopping Brexit is exactly what people will get. Yes, we will revoke Article 50.'

Remainer MPs are secretly plotting to revoke Article 50 to stop the UK leaving the EU on October 31. The government fears MPs will try to force through new legislation to stop a No Deal departure.

Two days ago, Liberal Democrat leader Jo Swinson branded the left-winger unfit to lead the country.

The Prime Minister says that if negotiations break down, he will ignore the Commons vote ordering him to delay the UK's departure, adding: 'The madder Hulk gets, the stronger Hulk gets.'

Petrol prices could SPIKE in wake of 'Iranian drone strike on Saudi Aramco plants'

The oil market is expected to see an increase of $5 to $10 per barrel when it opens tomorrow and may spike to as high as $100 per barrel if Saudi Arabia fails to quickly resume oil supply lost after attacks over the weekend, traders and analysts said. Attacks on two plants at the heart of the kingdom's oil industry yesterday knocked out more than half of Saudi crude output, or five per cent of global supply (pictured smoke billowing from the Abqaiq plant). Industry sources said it may take weeks to bring production fully online. Infernos raged at the plant in Abqaiq, Bugayg, and the country's second largest oilfield in Khurais yesterday morning after Tehran-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen fired a flurry of rockets. A senior Revolutionary Guard commander warned that the Islamic Republic was ready for a 'full-fledged war' and that US military bases were within range of Iranian missiles.
