Winston Churchill's WWII painting gets put up for auction by owner Angelina Jolie... and it's expected to fetch up to £2.5m

Mixing history with Hollywood, the artwork’s provenance could hardly be more impressive. Sir Winston Churchill’s only painting during the Second World War, which he gave to US president Franklin D Roosevelt, has been put up for sale by its current owner Angelina Jolie. The Moroccan landscape, called Tower of the Koutoubia Mosque, is expected to fetch £1.5million to £2.5million at a Christie’s auction next month – and could set a new record for a work by the former prime minister. Churchill painted it in Marrakech after the Casablanca conference in 1943, where it was agreed by the Allied forces that only complete surrender by the Axis powers would be acceptable. He invited Roosevelt to join him in Marrakech the day after the conference to show him the views of the city and the light at sunset, which he was particularly passionate about. Churchill, a keen amateur artist who created more than 500 paintings, captured the scene for the US president as a memento of their excursion.

Strangers constantly question why this married couple are together after wrongly presuming that they CAN'T HAVE SEX

***EXCLUSIVE*** LONDON, UK: Motivational speaker Winston Clements (34) from London, UK, first met his wife and soulmate, life coach Mayfair (23) from Swindon, UK, at a personal development event in London in July 2018. Both Winston and Mayfair were in the process of building their respective businesses and with this in common, they started talking. Mayfair was instantly struck by Winston?s personality and zest for life which left her feeling inspired and the pair soon became firm friends. TED talk speaker and diversity and inclusivity advocate, Winston was born with osteogenesis imperfecta (OI), a rare genetic condition which makes the bones weaker and more brittle. It affects around one in 20,000 people and has meant Winston has suffered over 200 fractures in his lifetime, but he has never let it hold him back from becoming a successful entrepreneur. Winston suggested to Mayfair that they start a group to support fellow entrepreneurs and after they ran their first event, Mayfair realised that her feelings for Winston ran deeper than a friendship or professional relationship, but she decided to keep her feelings a secret. Winston and Mayfair had been spending a lot of time together and during a 16-hour phone call shortly after their first event in November 2018, Winston told Mayfair he was in love with her. Mayfair was thrilled because she obviously felt the same and they discussed getting married. In June 2020 Winston proposed to Mayfair and on August 23, 2020, the couple got married in a beautiful ceremony in Berkshire in front of their close family and God to coincide with covid-19 restrictions. After sharing pictures of their relationship milestones on Instagram, Winston and Mayfair have been inundated with messages from well-wishers who were moved by their love story.

Happy Golden Retriever wears adorable outfits to help harvest fruit on family farm

An adorable golden retriever who helps his family harvest fruit on their family farm in Thailand has become a local celebrity because of his stylish outfits. Jubjib loves to help harvest and sell durians - one of the world's smelliest fruit. Jubjib joined the family business in 2014 and has since become an integral member of the team. Every harvest, the farmers share photos of the adorable pup happily doing his job, dressed in his signature sun-shielding hats and scarves. He has proven such a popular employee, that his face is now the farm's logo and can be seen on the packaging on various other products. Durians are known to be the foulest-smelling fruit in the world with the exotic, spiky-skinned fruit often being compared to raw sewage and rotting flesh. Its aroma is so pungent that durians have reportedly been banned from public places in Singapore and Malaysia. But even though dogs have a heightened sense of smell, Jubjib doesn’t seem too bothered by the fruit’s stench. With each harvest, his family shares pictures on their Facebook page of the beloved dog sitting proudly next to piles of durian with a big grin on his face. Jubjib's adorable images and more can be found on the Jubjibdurain Facebook page via facebook.comjubjibdurain.

Man shed an impressive EIGHTEEN INCHES from his waist when he realised he could no longer clean himself after using the toilet - but admits the EXCESS SKIN has left him with body dysmorphia

***EXCLUSIVE*** UPPER DARBY, PENNSYLVANIA, USA: Account development manager, Matt Fekelman (33) from Upper Darby, Pennsylvania, USA, has always been big for his age since childhood after both of his parents sadly passed away. Matt was adopted by his aunt Lisa when he was seven years old and at this time he was already five-feet-tall and weighed 9st 9lb. At school Matt had lots of friends but always found that he was the punchline to every joke because of his size and whilst the jokes upset him, he learnt to accept them. By the time Matt hit his twenties, he was comfortable with being the ?big guy? and was happy with who he was. But in 2009, Matt suffered a freak accident where he slipped on some steps and dislocated and shattered his ankle socket. Matt?s injuries meant he had to undergo two surgeries to fit a plate, two rods and eight screws ? leaving him wheelchair bound for nine months and then walking with a cast for another six months after this. When Matt?s ankle had healed, he had limited movement in his foot, was in constant pain and walked with a limp ? this caused Matt to sink into a deep depression where he turned to food for comfort and consumed up to 5,000-calories a day. This combined with a lack of mobility caused Matt to tip the scales at 24st 13lb and his waist measured 54-inches. He wore a XXXXXL shirt and bought button extenders for his trousers to make them fit. When Matt turned 30, he convinced himself he would die because of his obesity and struggled to wipe himself clean after going to the toilet due to his size.

Church is submerged in yellow lake caused by copper mining

***EXCLUSIVE*** This spire is all that can now be seen of an 18th century church that has all but disappeared below a frozen yellow lake. The water is discoloured due to waste from a nearby copper mine - which led to the orthodox church being swallowed by the lake. Copper production began at the Roșia-Poieni mine in 1983, and led to the evacuation of the Geamana village in Alba, Romania, as it was gradually claimed by the mines' toxic waste. The photos were captured by photographer Ovi Pop, who spoke of his sadness at the village and church's demise.

Meteors can be colorful

***EXCLUSIVE*** While the human eye usually cannot discern many colors, cameras often can. Pictured is a Quadrantids meteor captured by camera over Missouri, USA, that was not only impressively bright, but colorful. The radiant grit, likely cast off by asteroid 2003 EH1, blazed a path across Earth's atmosphere. Colors in meteors usually originate from ionized elements released as the meteor disintegrates, with blue-green typically originating from magnesium, calcium radiating violet, and nickel glowing green. Red, however, typically originates from energized nitrogen and oxygen in the Earth's atmosphere. This bright meteoric fireball was gone in a flash -- less than a second -- but it left a wind-blown ionization trail that remained visible for several minutes. This amazing, vivid streak of colour was left lingering in the sky after a "fireball" meteor shot through the Earth's atmosphere - in a rare event not usually seen by the naked eye. The sharp, rainbow-coloured line stretching across the starry night sky was left behind by a bright green meteor, which hurtled through the sky in the blink of an eye. While the meteor itself was gone almost as quickly as it appeared, the amazing red, blue and green tail it left behind was unusually bright and visible in the sky for several minutes after the event.
