Jahed Choudhury, 24, Britain's first married gay Muslim, revealed he is very happy to have wed husband Sean (left with Jahed), 20, in Walsall but struggles to reconcile his faith and sexuality. Posting the wedding (right) photos on Instagram last week, both of them wearing Bangladeshi dress, Jahed said he was proud ‘to show the whole world you can be gay and Muslim’. But he added he still fears abuse from the tight-knit Muslim community and has received death threats on social media.
The baby-smuggling phony 'Archbishop of Peckham' who passed off Aldi olive oil as a miracle cancer cure will finally be deported after judge slams 'scandalous' TEN-YEAR fight against human rights laws
The decade-long human rights battle to extradite a man calling himself the ‘Archbishop of Peckham’ (inset) to Kenya was described as ‘scandalous’ by a judge yesterday. Gilbert Deya (left), 65, who met the Queen during her Golden Jubilee (right) has been on the brink of being sent back to East Africa several times to stand trial for allegedly stealing five children. But aided by human rights laws, the Kenyan self-proclaimed ‘miracle worker’ has repeatedly come up with new ways to prevent his return, including claims he would be executed or tortured in prison. High Court judges have now dismissed his claims but it is unclear when he will be sent back to Kenya.
The married Marxist ladies’ man who is Corbyn's spin doctor and the troubling links of the blonde lawyer he was caught groping
On May 3, 2016, Jeremy Corbyn (inset right) hosted an event in Westminster in support of the somewhat obscure cause of ‘democratic reform’ in Western Papua New Guinea. So how do we explain Corbyn’s sudden interest in South Pacific politics? One possible answer lies in the identity of two key organisers of this gathering. One, who can be seen tapping away on his mobile phone in video footage of proceedings, was Corbyn’s all-powerful 59-year-old spin doctor, Seumas Milne (inset left). The other, who was standing directly behind the Labour leader was Mr Wenda’s lawyer, a glamorous 36-year-old called Jennifer Robinson (pictured left, and right with Milne). Fast-forward 14 months, and the relationship between Milne and Robinson is suddenly the talk of London’s political class.
No wonder the Queen calls Zara's husband a 'proper man': Rough-and-tumble dad Mike Tindall has cut down (a tad) on his boozing, helped his wife through miscarriage and doesn't care that she earns more than him
The sixth anniversary of the marriage of Mike and Zara Tindall, who are pictured left, occurs at the end of this month and the couple have known each other for 14 years. It's fair to say that reaching such a landmark has, at times, appeared unlikely. Indeed, their union has survived tests that would surely have put paid to other relationships, or at least placed them under considerable strain. How many other internationally successful macho men would gracefully submit to a marriage where their wife clearly out-earned them by a significant margin? How many high-profile couples could tolerate a triple blow of tragedy such as the Tindalls have been dealt, with Mike's father sinking into the grip of Parkinson's disease, Zara's beloved horse Toytown being put down last month after over two decades of service and — of course — their much longed-for second pregnancy ending in miscarriage in December? Add all this to Mike's discomfort with some aspects of how the royals raise their children (he said in a recent interview he would never permit daughter, Mia, three, pictured inset and right, to go to boarding school). Not to mention the very public humiliation of him being pictured with his face nestled in a gorgeous blonde's breasts in the early days of his marriage to Zara, and the raucous drinking habits of both husband and wife, and you can see why some worried the union would never last. But instead of fracturing under such pressures, as so many of the Royals have before them, the Tindalls' marriage is thriving. This has been helped by Mike, 38, utterly winning over his in-laws. Not only is his wife completely enamoured of him, but so, too, are the Queen, Prince Philip, Zara's mother Princess Anne, and Princes William and Harry.
Heartbroken Jermain Defoe breaks down in tears at 'best friend' Bradley Lowery's funeral as the six-year-old's mother pays tribute to her 'superhero in the sky'
More than three thousand people, many in football shirts, lined the streets of Blackhall Colliery, Bradley's home village in County Durham, to pay their respects to a six-year-old who inspired millions. The football-loving youngster fought bravely against the childhood cancer neuroblastoma and his friendship with former Sunderland striker Defoe touched the hearts of fans around the world. Bradley's coffin was brought to the ceremony in a glass carriage, pulled by two white horses decked out in the colours of Bradley's beloved Sunderland football team.
How nearly dying after childbirth inspired my wife to create Call The Midwife: STEPHEN McGANN's moving autobiography reveals the illness that nearly cost Heidi Thomas her life
Actor Stephen McGann has revealed how his wife Heidi Thomas' (bottom right) near-death experience after childbirth led to her creating BBC powerhouse drama Call The Midwife (top right). The couple, who married in 1990, had son Dominic in 1996 (left), but months after the birth Heidi was taken ill with a gangrenous small intestine and needed emergency surgery, with the ordeal described as a 'waking nightmare' by Stephen. After pulling through, her experiences led the screenwriter to create the popular BBC drama.
Sectarian pitch battle mars Belfast minnows Champions League clash with Celtic as Protestant Loyalist home supporters yell anti-Catholic abuse and even throw bottles of Buckfast wine at the players from the visiting Glasgow team
With riot police watching on (left and top right), Celtic emerged victorious over the Northern Ireland club after the match in Belfast. Police made one arrest, a 25-year-old man on suspicion of disorderly behaviour, during the match day operation. The fixture was moved from July 11/12 to avoid a clash with Orange Order commemorations at the height of the marching season. Projectiles including a bottle of Buckfast (bottom right) were thrown at Celtic corner takers Leigh Griffiths and Jonny Hayes from a Linfield section of Windsor Park and, at the final whistle, a number of fans of the home team tried to invade the pitch when Griffiths tied a scarf to the goal posts.
Three-year-old Rio gave birth to a litter of nine puppies - but when one came out mint green Louise Sutherland, of Golspie, Scotland, was speechless. The pup has been named Forest. The substance can stain the puppy's coat when it mixes with the mother's amniotic fluid - the liquid that protects and nourishes the pup. Mrs Sutherland said: 'The first pup was stuck, so myself and my daughter Claire managed to free him and pull him out safely. It was all hands on deck but then as the puppies started to arrive, we noticed that one of the puppies had green fur! We couldn't believe it.'
Incredible life and tragic losses of RAF hero who was one of six to survive three days in the freezing North Sea after the Nazis bombed his aircraft carrier are revealed as his WWII medals and diary go up for sale
Sir Kenneth Cross was serving as part of an air Squadron put in charge of protecting HMS Glorious when the battle cruiser was attacked by the German Navy, in the North Sea. Miraculously he survived the shipwreck and freezing conditions and was picked up in a lifeboat by a Norwegian fishing vessel, 70 hours later. Reflecting on the harrowing ordeal, he wrote in his diary: 'Men would slide into the well, we would pick them up and push them over the side. Again and again. Most of the deaths took place in the first few hours.' Sir Kenneth went on to fight the Nazis in Scandinavia, North Africa and western Europe and was awarded a haul of medals for his dedicated service. His wartime archive is now being sold by his family and is expected to fetch £10,000 at auction. Left, after the war with his wife Barbara, top right, addressing his men before HMS Glorious was bombed, bottom right, his medal haul and right, his war-time diary.
Striking colourised photos of Emmeline Pankhurst and the suffragettes fighting for women to have the vote are revealed ahead of what would have been her 159th birthday
A striking photograph of Emmeline Pankhurst being dragged away by policeman during suffragette protests (left) has been revamped in honour of her birthday tomorrow. Royston Leonard, an electrician from Cardiff, decided to colour the image along with several others in memory of Mrs Pankhurst (inset), who died in 1928 after spending her life campaigning for women to have the right to vote. The stunning collection of photographs feature women parading down the streets of London holding placards (right) as well as the Suffrage Hike of 1912 from Manhattan to Albany in New York.
British captain who killed a German at Dunkirk – with a bow and arrow: Brave acts that turned calamitous defeat into an unlikely triumph are revealed in this nerve shredding reconstruction
It is late May 1940 and the British Expeditionary Force is in retreat, pinned against the Channel coast. They had sailed for France almost nine months before, anticipating Hitler’s Blitzkrieg that finally came on May 10 when Germany invaded Belgium and Holland. Now, Lord Gort, head of the BEF, has decided to evacuate his troops (bottom right) - and Churchill’s generals are praying for a miracle. As an epic new film (top right), Dunkirk, opens in cinemas, author JONATHAN MAYO reveals in electrifying detail how the heroic mass evacuation unfolded. One officer, Captain Jack Churchill (left), brought a bow and arrow with him to France. Jack spotted a German unit sheltering behind a building and let fly an arrow.
SUE REID: These nurses from Down Under are in Britain and desperate to work for an understaffed NHS after the Grenfell Tower disaster - but red tape and a crazy English test stop them
On the night of the Grenfell Tower fire, nurse Georgia van Zantvoort watched the tragedy unfold from the window of her nearby flat. The 24-year-old used to work at New Zealand’s busiest hospital casualty department and says: ‘I know how to save lives. I was minutes from the tower block. I wanted to be there helping. But because I’m not a registered NHS nurse, there was nothing I could do.’ Georgia is one of many qualified nurses from Australia and New Zealand living in the UK who are desperate for an NHS post but find that strict entrance tests and red tape bar their way. In this picture are 11 who came to Britain hoping to join the NHS, yet none has been able to do so. (Pictured: 1. Courtney Brown 2. Claire Brady 3. Georgia Van Zantvoort 4. Miriam Petterson 5.

Five-year-old boy who now 'is with the angels' after he died in the Grenfell Tower inferno is buried on the same day as a grandfather, 82, who died in the tragic blaze
London Mayor Sadiq Khan joined family and friends in paying respects to Isaac Paulos (left), five, one of the tragedy's youngest victims, at St Philip's Church, in Battersea, west London. Later in the day mourners gathered at the Hussaini Islamic Mission, in Isleworth (right), for the funeral of 82-year-old grandfather Ali Jafari (inset). Both victims were killed, along with at least 80 others, when a blaze erupted at their block of flats in North Kensington last month.
The real star of Wimbledon: No, not Pippa... it’s the ever-elegant Duchess of Kent who’s always won hearts
The Duchess of Kent made a rare public appearance at Wimbledon on Thursday (pictured left and top right), after largely withdrawing from public life. The ever-elegant Duchess has been a staple at Wimbledon since 1969. She famously comforted Czech Wimbledon finalist Jana Novotna after her 1993 loss (pictured bottom right).
Theresa May was FINED by the Treasury for breaking rules with huge £500,000 pay package for disastrous child sex abuse inquiry chief
EXCLUSIVE: The Home Office has been fined more than £366,000 by the Treasury after the chair and panel for the probe were handed six-figure packages without authorisation. Theresa May set up the inquiry in 2014 in response to allegations of child sex abuse at institutions ranging from the BBC to children's homes, but it has been beset by trouble from the start. Mrs May was responsible for breaking the rules when as Home Secretary she set the daily rates for panel members at a generous £565 a day. And Mrs Rudd breached them again in August last year when she appointed Professor Alexis Jay on a £220,000 package.
Pinned to the ground by brave hotel staff and wheeled away in luggage cart cage, the holiday terror knifeman who killed two women after 'targeting only female tourists' in Egyptian Red Sea resort of Hurghada
Six women were rushed to hospital after being stabbed at a Red Sea resort in the town of Hurghada, Egypt, on Friday where two German women died. The attacker reportedly shouted: 'Stay away, I don't want Egyptians.' One woman on a stretcher (inset) and another bloodied victim were pictured in what appeared to be a hotel lobby. The alleged assailant (left), who swam to the resort from a neighbouring beach before launching his attack, was pictured being held down in a luggage cart by hotel staff (right). Security and medical sources had earlier reported the two women killed were Ukrainians, but Major General Mohamed El-Hamzawi, security manager of Red Sea province, said victims have been identified as Germans.
Stampeding British tourists flee in panic as explosion hits shopping centre in Costa Del Sol holiday resort sparking fears of a terror attack
A loud bang was heard inside the Miramar shopping centre, in the popular Spanish resort of Fuengirola on the Costa del Sol. Shoppers - including British tourists and expats - screamed and ran for their lives fearing the centre was under attack. Firefighters later revealed the panic had spread after a fryer had caught fire in a pizza restaurant.
Graveyard of ISIS’s modified cars wrapped in bulletproof metal sheets that they planned to use in deadly suicide bombings go on show in Mosul after the group’s defeat
Dozens of cars modified by ISIS to carry out deadly suicide bombings have been put on exhibition in Mosul after they were confiscated by Iraqi police. Most of the vehicles are standard SUV cars that you would find on driveways up and down the country only with the outer shell replaced with bulletproof iron sheets making them look like something from Robot Wars. After police liberated the neighbourhood of Hamam al-Qalil from the terror group, chiefs decide to parade their findings in Northern Iraq. As well as replacing the outer casing of the car, Islamic State fighters changed the passenger seats to compartments fit to be packed with explosives. Once the clunky customisation was complete, the terror group would sit its martyrs in the driving seat and send them to the target with their protective casing meaning they could reach their destination even if they came under heavy fire.
