Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson have returned home to the United States after testing positive for COVID-19, the novel coronavirus, in Australia.

The “Cast Away” actor took to his Twitter account to announce the good news after he and Wilson spent more than two weeks in Queensland self-isolating.

“Hey, Folks…We’re home now and, like the rest of America, we carry on with sheltering in place and social distancing. Many, many thanks to everyone in Australia who looked after us. Their care and guidance made possible our return to the USA. And many thanks to all of you who reached out with well wishes. Rita and I so appreciate it. Hanx,” the actor tweeted.

Hanks and Wilson, both 63, kept their fans updated throughout their quarantine process since first revealing their positive diagnosis on March 11.

“Hello, folks. Rita and I are down here in Australia. We felt a bit tired, like we had colds, and some body aches. Rita had some chills that came and went. Slight fevers too. To play things right, as is needed in the world right now, we were tested for the Coronavirus, and were found to be positive,” the 63-year-old actor first revealed in a statement on Twitter.

He continued, “Well, now. What to do next?  The Medical Officials have protocols that must be followed. We Hanks’ will be tested, observed, and isolated for as long as public health and safety requires. Not much more to it than a one-day-at-a-time approach, no? We’ll keep the world posted and updated. Take care of yourselves!”

The couple reportedly stayed in a hospital in Queensland for five days before being released. Hanks was in Australia filming an untitled Elvis Presley biopic directed by Baz Luhrmann when he and Wilson learned they contracted the coronavirus.

The film has since halted production.

One week following the couple’s diagnosis, Hanks took to his social media to update fans on their symptoms.

“Hey folks. Good News: One week after testing Positive, in self-isolation, the symptoms are much the same. No fever but the blahs,” Hanks revealed. “Folding the laundry and doing the dishes leads to a nap on the couch.”

Hanks then told fans that Wilson had beat him in six straight hands of gin rummy.

“But I have learned not to spread my Vegemite so thick,” he said referencing fans’ reactions to a previous post showing his generous helping of Vegemite on toast.

“I traveled here with a typewriter, one I used to love. We are all in this together. Flatten the curve,” Hanks concluded the post, which showed the typewriter he referenced.

The couple’s son, Chet Hanks, also kept fans updated through the process, taking to his social media after the Hollywood stars left the hospital to assure fans they were “feeling a lot better.”

Wilson turned to music during her time in isolation, prompting the creation of a playlist she shared on Spotify that she named “Quarantunes” following a survey she conducted with fans on her Instagram account.

Other celebrities who have since confirmed they tested positive for COVID-19 include Idris Elba, Debi Mazar and Daniel Dae Kim, among others.

Peter Andre admits he and wife Emily might move to Australia | Entertainment Daily

Singer Peter Andre has suggested he might quit the UK with his wife Emily and move back to Australia.

The dad of four, 47, was born in Harrow, London and spent his early childhood in the UK before moving to Australia with his family at the age of nine.

Last month, the Mysterious Girl hitmaker returned Down Under to visit his relatives.

And in his most recent column for New magazine, Pete revealed why he left the country’s idyllic Gold Coast, where his family eventually settled.

“The simple answer is work, then I had children,” he explained. “I probably would have stayed there otherwise.

“My heart lies with both and UK and Australia, but maybe one day I’ll move back Down Under.”

Peter, who is of Greek-Cypriot descent, then revealed what a move might mean for his wife, 29-year-old doctor Emily.

“Doctors are in demand in Oz, so there will always be work for Emily,” he wrote.

While he was away in Australia recently, Peter shared a sweet snap of his mum on Instagram and told followers she “hasn’t been great”.

He delighted fans with a string of photos of himself and his eldest children – Princess, 12, and Junior, 14 – meeting their relations Down Under.

In one photo, the pair posed and smiled next to their nan, Peter’s mum Thea, as she planted a big kiss on Princess’ cheek.

Pete captioned the pic, which also included his sister Debbie’s son, Savandy: “Mum, we love you so much it’s unreal. #australia.”

One of his other relatives commented on the pic, “Gorgeous, cuz” and in his reply, Peter admitted his mum hasn’t been too well: “Cuz I’m so sorry I haven’t got to see you guys, but had to come back for a flying visit to see mum.

“She hasn’t been great. Love her too much.”

Another photo posted on Peter’s Instagram account showed him sharing a hug with his sister, Debbie.

Kylie Jenner Dumps Tyga After He Sells Her Ferrari For Child Support Money While She Was In Australia

 LOS ANGELES – After a surprising breakup between Kylie Jenner and Tyga on his own birthday, everyone is wondering what had happened to one of Hollywoods most famous couples? According to reports, Kylie Jenner dumped Tyga after he had apparently sold the Ferrari he gave Kylie for her birthday 3 months ago without her permission so he can pay child support.

On August 10, 2015, which is Kylie Jenner birthdate, Tyga gave Kylie a brand new Ferrari 458 Italia as a birthday gift costing over $200,000.

Now, a little over 3 months later on Tyga’s birthday, Kylie Jenner arrives back at Los Angeles from a her trip to Australia to find that her Ferrari was nowhere to be found. She later learned that Tyga had sold the Ferrari without her permission so he could pay child support.

Kylie Jenner, disgusted by Tyga’s actions, simply dumped him. Kylie even tweeted out about the drama, which was later deleted. However, we managed to get a screenshot of the tweet before it was deleted:

According to reports, Tyga sold the Ferrari for a solid $200,000 while Kylie was in Australia. Tyga reportedly attempted to lie to Kylie by telling her it had been stolen. But after further investigation, she learned the truth. Why would Tyga sell the Ferrari he had given Kylie for her birthday? Better yet, why did even give it to her in the first place? These questions are yet to be answered. All we know is that Tyga may soon surpass Meek Mill in L’s.

The Fire Fight Australia concert was full of memorable moments — here’s five of the best – ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

Updated February 17, 2020 14:33:46

It was an incredible feat to pull off — 10 hours, 22 acts, and almost $10 million raised for bushfire relief.

More than 75,000 people packed the stadium in Sydney and over 1 million watched from home as the Fire Fight Australia concert added an exclamation point to devastating summer of deadly blazes.

Here are five moments that made the day unforgettable.

In 1985, rock royalty Queen gave what is widely considered as one of the greatest live performances of all time to a sold out Wembley Stadium in London for Live Aid.

Thirty-five years later, Queen and Adam Lambert played that signature set to 75,000 people at Fire Fight Australia.

The iconic transition from opening number Bohemian Rhapsody, which was cut short to make way for Radio Ga Ga, was met with excited shrieks from the crowd when people realised the band was about to recreate the moment for the first time ever.

The late Freddie Mercury even made an appearance when his famous “ay-oh” recall sequence was beamed on to screens.

After the concert, guitarist Brian May told his fans on social media: “I don’t think I’ve felt quite like that since Live Aid.”

Cooper’s high-octane set

Alice Cooper injected some serious energy into the show when he strode onto the stage just before sundown.

The veteran rocker’s blistering performance, which included the iconic tracks Poison and School’s Out, brought the crowd to life and set the tone for the second half of the concert.

Cooper’s trademark theatrics, which included several props and costume changes, as well as guitarist Nita Strauss’s soaring solos, were a major highlight.

The crowd was in full voice when 72-year-old Cooper went off the script to belt out lines from Pink Floyd’s 1979 hit Another Brick In the Wall as part of a show-stopping finish.

A truly Australian finale

It was no surprise when John Farnham closed the night with You’re the Voice, but two special guests gave it new significance.

Birri Gubba man Mitch Tambo sang the second half of the power ballad in Gamilaraay while mimicking the movements of a bird through traditional dance.

And there was no denying the crowd’s delight when Queen guitarist Brian May returned to the stage, embracing Farnham as the sounds of a didgeridoo filled the stadium.

Olivia Newton-John got one of the biggest cheers of the night when she joined her old friend on stage to perform the 1998 hit Two Strong Hearts.

After pumping performances from the likes of Hilltop Hoods and 5 Seconds of Summer, Canadian singer k.d. lang took the audience’s breath away.

The stadium fell silent as the names of those who lost their lives in the bushfire crisis were flashed across the screens.

The Canadian singer, dressed all in white, then took to the stage to perform The Valley and her moving cover of Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah.

Somehow, an already emotion-charged event got even more touching when the crowd paid tribute to the Rural Fire Service (RFS) volunteers in attendance with a standing ovation.

There were about 1,000 RFS volunteers and their families in the stands at Stadium Australia — the group attended the event free of charge and were easy to identify in special red T-shirts.

Fire Fight Australia’s comedian host Celeste Barber got serious for a moment to ask the massive crowd to stand up and show their appreciation for the firies.

What happened next was spine-tingling.

AC/DC are rumoured to be announcing a world stadium tour with Brian Johnson, 72, resuming his position on vocals.

AC/DC last toured Down Under in 2015 and 2016 for their Rock or Bust World Tour, in support of their sixteenth studio album, Rock or Bust. 

Eddie said: ‘My mail is, there will be a new album released by AC/DC in February or March this year, but also that AC/DC will be touring Australia [in] October/November 2020.

‘And after a lot of work and a lot of technical research they have been able to get a hearing aid for Brian Johnson, who will be out front, and even Phil Rudd might be back in the group either playing percussion or drums.’

‘Darkest day of my professional life’: Brian’s hearing problems forced him to leave AC/DC mid-tour in 2016. But he has apparently ‘been able to get a hearing aid’ that allows him to perform

Brian’s hearing problems forced him to leave the band mid-tour in 2016.

He was temporarily replaced by Guns N’ Roses singer Axl Rose, who served as vocalist for the band’s remaining concerts.

Doctors had advised the frontman to either quit performing live or face the possibility of ‘total hearing loss’.

‘That was the darkest day of my professional life,’ Brian said of the diagnosis at the time.

McGuire also claimed that lead guitarist Angus Young, 64, would join the tour, as well as drummer Phil Rudd, 65, who left the group in 2014 amid legal troubles.

‘I’m hearing the album will be out February [or] March, and we’ll all be banging our heads like the old days,’ he added.

AC/DC was formed in Sydney in November 1973 by brothers Malcolm and Angus Young.

Following the death of lead singer Bon Scott from acute alcoholic poisoning at the age of 33 in 1980, Brian Johnson was hired to replace him.  

Rhythm guitarist Malcolm was diagnosed with dementia in 2014 and retired to a Sydney nursing home. He died on November 18, 2017 at the age of 64.

AC/DC have yet to formally announce a 2020 album or Australian tour.
