Davina McCall did an impressive job presenting This Morning with Rochelle Humes on Friday, didn't she? The star admitted she felt pretty nervous on her Instagram Story beforehand, but we reckon she was a total pro at reading that wordy autocue. Davina looked lovely in a floaty navy blue dress that Holly Willoughby would be jealous of, too, and surprised us with a pretty new hairstyle! Instead of her usual tousled shoulder lengths, she chose to have her brunette 'do pulled back into a gorgeous braided look. We loved Davina's braided hairstyleIn fact, both presenters decided to wear their hair in chic up-dos for Friday's show - Rochelle also pulled her pretty curls in a chignon, secured with a gorgeous pearl-studded clip. While Davina opted for a classic midi dress, Mrs Humes went for a pair of tailored pinstripe trousers and a fitted black top.

The couple appeared to confirm their relationship when they stepped out together at a film premiere in June, though of course Michael has been the man behind all of Davina's iconic hair looks for over 20 years. With partner and hairdresser MichaelWhile they haven't spoken publicly about their relationship, Michael has often shared behind-the-scenes snaps of Davina in the hairstylist's chair. He wrote in 2018: "I've been doing this bob for almost 20 years the lovely @davinamccall. Always inverted (longer at the front than the back) layering around the face and long layers everywhere else. Looks great wavy or straight."MORE: Pucker up! 10 of our favourite red lipsticks right nowMichael has also worked previously with Davina's co-host, Rochelle Humes, as well as the likes of Dawn French, Darcey Bussell and Laura Whitmore.

(Bloomberg) -- Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn’s appeal to other U.K. parties that he should become a caretaker prime minister to stop a no-deal Brexit looks to have already fallen flat, as even some in his own party apparently accepted an alternative plan was needed.Corbyn on Wednesday evening wrote to rival party leaders, as well as selected Conservative members of Parliament, and suggested they should support him to oust Boris Johnson so he could seek a delay to Britain’s departure from the European Union and call a general election.While the Scottish National Party and Plaid Cymru, who between them have 39 MPs, expressed a willingness to discuss the idea, it was rejected by the Liberal Democrats, who have 14 MPs. The party’s leader, Jo Swinson, called Corbyn a “divisive” figure who had no realistic chance of getting a majority behind him even on a temporary basis.“There’s no way he can unite rebel Conservatives and independents,” Swinson said in a speech in London on Thursday. “It’s not even certain he could secure all the votes of Labour members of Parliament.”Corbyn’s proposal was that he should table a confidence motion -- as leader of the main opposition party, he is the only person who can demand such a vote and be certain of the request being accepted -- once other parties had agreed to his plan.Although Corbyn insisted on Thursday that it was his right to lead the administration that would follow -- Labour has 247 seats and would thus supply three-quarters of the votes behind any replacement government -- some MPs in his party seemed to acknowledge that he wouldn’t be a plausible candidate as a caretaker premier.“If the PM loses a vote of no confidence, of course the Leader of the Opposition should be first in line to test the confidence of the House, followed by anyone else who seems to stand a chance of forming a government,” Chris Bryant, a Labour MP, said on Twitter. “There’s no reason not to have several attempts in short order.”Stephen Kinnock, another Labour MP, told Politico that if lawmakers rejected Corbyn, it would be reasonable to ask him to support an alternative leader.But Conservative MP Guto Bebb reacted more positively, calling a short-term government under Corbyn “less damaging than the generational damage that would be caused by a no-deal Brexit.”“Those that have said that they will do anything necessary to stop the long-term damage of a no-deal exit must take seriously this type of offer,” Bebb told the BBC.Still, Corbyn’s letter largely highlighted the difficulties of a so-called government of national unity, a plan floated by some to stop the no-deal Brexit that they fear Johnson will pursue.He didn’t even write to the former Labour MPs who quit his party earlier this year. Given that their reason for leaving was his leadership, that makes sense -- but he would need their votes. The letter also confirmed that Corbyn wouldn’t allow Labour MPs to support any other such caretaker government.Dominic Grieve, one of the Tories that Corbyn approached, said he was happy to discuss ways of blocking a no-deal Brexit, but that a unity government under the Labour leader seemed a “most unlikely way forward.” Some of Corbyn’s views, Grieve told the BBC, were “entirely abhorrent.”“Even for a short period a prime minister in a caretaker capacity has got to be somebody who can inspire trust,” Grieve said. “I have to say that seeing Jeremy Corbyn’s history, it’s difficult to see how he could possibly be in a position to do such a thing.”Corbyn also made clear his priority is a general election, rather than stopping Brexit altogether. Those who want to stay in the EU prefer the idea of calling another referendum. While Labour is now committed to holding such a vote if it wins power, it has kept open the option of campaigning to leave the bloc.The primary focus when Parliament returns next month is likely to be less on any confidence vote than in moves by the large group of Conservative MPs -- including former Chancellor of the Exchequer Philip Hammond -- to find a legislative route to blocking a no-deal Brexit.(Updates with Grieve response from 13th paragraph.)To contact the reporters on this story: Robert Hutton in London at firstname.lastname@example.org;Alex Morales in London at email@example.comTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Tim Ross at firstname.lastname@example.org, Stuart Biggs, Mark WilliamsFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
