The stuntman Neil Fingleton who played Mag the Mighty on Game of Thrones has died aged 36.
Mr Fingleton, who at 7ft 7in was declared the UK’s tallest man in 2007 reportedly died of heart failure on Saturday.
Born in County Durham Mr Fingleton moved to the U.S. to pursue a career in basketball however an injury forced him to retire in 2007 and he returned to Durham to pursue a career in showbusiness.
Eventually he became an actor starring in films such as X-Men: First Class, 47 Ronin and Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Speaking about his height Mr Fingleton said:
I do cause a bit of a stir wherever I go, with people pulling out cameras, but it doesn’t bother me.
I’ve never been embarrassed about my height and I actually like the size I am. It’s something unique and original. My group of friends are great and I come from a good family, so being tall hasn’t ever been an issue. I’ve not been self-conscious.
The Facebook group, The Tall Persons Club, paid tribute to Mr Fingelton saying that ‘Neil Fingleton Britain’s Tallest man passed away on Saturday’.
If you’re one of those people who doesn’t deal well with change, look away now.
According to a report in the Wall Street Journal, Apple are about to ditch another iPhone feature and cause the technologically engaged world to dive head first into a full-blown system meltdown.
The victim this time is not the headphone jack, nor the home screen button. This time, Apple Inc. are ditching their Lightning Port for a new USB-C port, marking another shift for the iPhone’s design.
In terms you and I will understand, the charging port you currently plug your phone into – at all too regular intervals between deleting apps and desperately trying to conserve your phone battery – is going to look very different when the new iPhone 8 is rolled out.
The USB-C port is a feature more commonly associated with new Android smartphones releases.
However, it’s not entirely new territory for Apple, who introduced the USB-C port on its MacBooks in 2015.
The change is set to be costly for both accessory manufactures and Apple users – that’s you and me.
In other words, it’s going to cost everyone a small fortune to keep up with Apple’s ever-changing technology.
Leonie was keen to explain to Contiki the pair are still determined to see and do new things on a weekend though.
She told the company:
We value going new places, and something you realise after travelling is everywhere in the world is worth going to.
Even though we’re stuck in one place, and we only have a day or two on the weekends to go somewhere, there are a lot of places to go to and a lot of things to do, so we’ve kept the excitement going – even though it is a completely different phase of our lives.
The apparent hack has come to light after a link to the images were sent to Wayne Rooney prostitute and Celebrity Big Brother contestant Helen Wood, with the sender suggesting that she include them in her Daily Star column.
Last week, I was pondering along through life, when I received a DM on Twitter. No idea who this guy was, but had a peek all the same out of curiosity.
Turns out, it was a link to Emily Ratajkowski’s iCloud pictures. This clown had inboxed me and asked that I release the full set of naked images in my column.
To be clear, this wasn’t footage of a randy star salivating at the mouth wanging their bits about while fishing for a random on Skype for a sex sesh. This was private stuff, sent between two people.
There’s trouble in paradise as the couple who created #relationshipgoals have ended with a big bang… or a really small one depending on how you think about it.
Model Alexis Ren rose to fame with her ex-boyfriend and model Jay Alvarrez when they made every normal person in the world cry with longing whilst bobbing their head to the deep house tune they accompanied their travel porn with.
When you watch them with their perfect bodies and perfect lives, they look so happy and in love, but Alexis has taken to Twitter about how he was a ‘fuckboy’ and then took a low blow and revealed his penis size.
This is Mari Ferrari. A Portugese DJ who’s recent video has made her famous after getting over a million views and thousands of shares. Why? Sexism, apparently.
For an hour and 16 minutes on Sunday, Mari live streamed herself DJ-ing and dancing the night away with a fitting and strategically placed poster behind: ‘I will be famous because of sexism’.
Unless you’re blind or just incredibly into the music, at some point during the 86 minute performance you probably noticed the gigantic assets Mari was sporting. Spoiler, they were part of the act, reports the Mirror.

Throughout the performance many of the comments made reference to Mari’s physical (sort of) appearance.
One comment read:
So what precisely is she doing other than being made of 90% plasic (silicone) turning some nobs(that don’t seem to be changing anything) and “dancing” horribly?
Omg tha body look so gross and fake.
Mari literally made it because of sexism – but then again, she did so at her own will and is currently making headlines across the world for merely doing so.
Mari followed the set with a series of slightly baffling follow up videos – in one of which she calls for Donald Trump to follow her page and in another she cries, with makeup smeared all over her face, wishing she was no longer famous.
