Holidaymakers could need paper Covid vaccine certificates The destinations likely to be on the travel 'green list' this summer The destinations most likely to be on the 'amber list' Sign up to the Telegraph Travel newsletter A surge of pent-up holiday demand is set to be unleashed today when the Government reveals the first countries to make its “green” list, allowing quarantine-free travel from later this month. British holidaymakers are expected to be allowed to visit only a handful of destinations when the ban on international travel lifts on May 17, with Portugal, Malta and Israel due to make the cut. Details on which countries will make the “green” list on the new traffic light system, and which “amber”, meaning quarantine will be required on return, is expected in a Downing Street press conference at 5pm. Emma Coulthurst, a spokesperson for TravelSupermarket, said the holiday comparison site had already begun to see increases in search for those countries mooted to be on the list. The Government has taken a country's infection rates, vaccine progress and genomic sequencing capacity into account. “There are some really good prices at the moment if people are happy with the terms and conditions for the package holiday and decide to go ahead and book,” she said. “Once the green list is announced, there will be an anticipated increase in demand for those destinations on the list and, depending on demand levels, prices may go up.” Scroll down for the latest updates

Legendary cellist also demonstrates why he’s considered a genius several times For their last new episode of “Desus & Mero” before they go on summer hiatus, Desus Nice and The Kid Mero took a trip to Boston to visit with legendary cellist — and 18-time Grammy winner — Yo-Yo Ma for what turned out to be a repeated examples of just why Ma is universally regarded as a genius. The whole thing is awesome, from their initial banter with Ma, who is extremely game to joke around, and a trip to Ma’s barber where they discussed his once glorious flowing locks of hair. But the highlight, if you can call the bulk of the clip a “highlight,” comes when Desus and Mero sat down with Ma for a demonstration of his musical abilities. It ended with Ma’s haunting tribute to cellist Pablo Casals — and a fun riff on the old “how do you get to Carnegie Hall” joke — but before that Ma somehow functioned as a cellist-DJ-Karaoke machine for Desus and Mero, playing some of their favorite songs while they sang, or rapped, or spoken-worded along. You’re here for DMX of course and you’ll be delighted to know that the first thing Ma did on request was a cello version of the iconic keyboard melody from DMX’s “Ruff Ryders Anthem.” Along with some really fun freestyle from Desus and Mero. Next up, Ma played the sick string melody from Britney Spears’ “Toxic,” and we’re not gonna lie, it ruled. And then, Ma performed the string hook from Sisqo’s “Thong Song.” Look, what we’re saying is that the whole thing ruled and it’s a bummer we’re going to have to wait a few months for more “Desus & Mero.” But you can tide yourself over by watching the whole thing, right now, at the top of the page.

Kelly insisted he was wearing Balmains in hugely mocked photo, but it looks like he rocks a much cheaper knock off Newsmax weirdo Greg Kelly, who has made something of a career out of telling the most bizarre tall tales and falsehoods on Twitter, found himself the object of ridicule twice over on Thursday after he posted a photo of himself wearing absolutely cringe cargo pants, and then attempted to deflect mockery by claiming they were actually $1000 designer pants. So, first Kelly tweeted out this photo with disgraced former president Trump — who just four months ago incited a deadly riot in an attempt to overthrow the government because he lost an election, in case you forgot. “Chillin’ with 45!” Kelly said, adding that he was wearing a pair of Bugle Boy jeans. Chillin’ with 45! (And yes. Those are BUGLE BOY jeans I’m wearing) pic.twitter.com/g8EwzRgrAs— Greg Kelly (@gregkellyusa) May 6, 2021 For those of you unaware, Bugle Boy was a brand of menswear that specialized in pants and jeans with elaborate stitching and often asymmetrical designs and odds numbers of pockets. They were especially popular in the late 1980s through the early 1990s but the company went out of business in 2001. They were honestly pretty cool — until they weren’t of course and yes, Kelly’s pants do look a lot like the kind of thing Bugle Boy would have sold. People clowned on him about it and that must have made him pretty self conscious, because 3 hours after the original tweet, he followed it up with what we assume he intended to be a definitive shut-down of his critics. “Everyone busting my CRACKERS over the “pants”–(partially my fault because I called attention to them with the Bugle Boy comment). The truth is, they’re BALMAIN (the most prestigious brand in PANTS)–my shoes are by Ferragamo. Basically, I’m a Sharp Dressed Man. Thank you!” Kelly said. Everyone busting my CRACKERS over the “pants”—(partially my fault because I called attention to them with the Bugle Boy comment). The truth is, they’re BALMAIN (the most prestigious brand in PANTS)—my shoes are by Ferragamo. Basically, I’m a Sharp Dressed Man. Thank you ! pic.twitter.com/sDgtoGy9Ol— Greg Kelly (@gregkellyusa) May 6, 2021 Now first, we have no idea what “busting my crackers” means. We guess he was trying to avoid using the word “balls,” but there already exists a minced oath version of that expression, which uses the word “chops.” So who knows. In any case, Anyway, while we would contest the assertion that wearing those pants in combination with loafers makes anyone “sharp dressed,” we do concede that Balmain cargo pants are super expensive — even an on-sale pair costs nearly a grand — and would, if true, mean that Kelly did indeed splurge like a baller on his tactical dad jeans. Alas, it looks like Kelly’s baller dreams are just that — dreams. Because one eagle eyed tweeter noted that he appears to be wearing a cheap knock off. Actually they are 96.99 from aliexpress. Balmain cargo pants only have 1 zipper pocket but the knock offs have 2. Odd thing to lie about. pic.twitter.com/PaTFQmSumM— 🌷Michelle🌷 (@Irish_Rose14) May 7, 2021 While we can’t say for certain how much the pants he’s wearing cost, TheWrap can confirm that they are indeed not Balmains. (Which do, in fact, have just the one zip pocket.)

Kimmel pokes fun at Jenner’s interview with Sean Hannity During his monologue Thursday, Jimmy Kimmel took a moment to talk about Caitlyn Jenner’s interview the night before with Sean Hannity — and his takeaway is that the California candidate for governor is an “Ignorant a-hole.” Before he got there, Kimmel talked about the interview, “what they called a town hall with Sean Hannity. There was no town, and no hall, but there was Sean Hannity pretending to be interested in Caitlyn’s take on a variety of subjects including her inexplicable affection for Donald Trump.” Then Kimmel rolled a clip in which Jenner talked about how Trump “did some things that I agreed with, some things I didn’t agree with,” and then said she liked that Trump was a “disruptor” who “came in and shook the system up.” Sidebar: One way Trump “shook the system up” was by dramatically escalating bigoted policies aimed at taking away the rights of transgender people. Anyway, back to Kimmel, who said about that “shook the system up” comment, “he shook the system so hard he lost custody of it. He’s… child protective services had to come in and stop him from shaking the system.” Then Kimmel talked about one of the weirder moments during the interview, when Jenner tried to tell a relatable, everyperson story about how bad California is — but ended up just sounding like an out of touch, entitled rich person. She was in her private airplane hanger for the interview with Hannity, and she told Hannity that someone else who also has a private hanger in the same location claims he’s leaving California because he just can’t tolerate seeing homeless people anymore. So to restate: A very, very wealthy person tried to connect with voters by telling the story of another very, very wealthy person who would rather move out of state than do anything to help the homelessness problem. “Ah, homeless people, can’t walk around ‘em, can’t fly over ‘em,” Kimmel joked. “Is it transphobic to call a trans person an ignorant a-hole? Or does calling that trans person an ignorant a-hole even though she happens to be a trans person show that we don’t discriminate against ignorant a-holes… it’s a tough one, I don’t know, I guess we’ll let the internet decide tomorrow.” Watch the whole monologue above. Kimmel’s remarks on Caitlyn Jenner happen around 4 minutes in. Read original story Jimmy Kimmel Calls Out ‘Ignorant A-hole’ Caitlyn Jenner’s Homelessness Comment (Video) At TheWrap
Well, “good-ish” Elon Musk will make his SNL debut this Saturday, which comes out the day before Mother’s Day, and in a promo clip for the episode he promised to bring his best in honor of his mom. In the promo for the upcoming May 8 episode, Musk and musical guest Miley Cyrus were joined by cast member Cecily Strong. Musk told viewers from behind a bank robber-esque black bandana, “I am a wild card, so there’s no telling what I might do.” Cyrus agreed, and added, “same here. Rules, no thanks.” Then Strong reminded them both that it’s the show’s 2021 Mother’s Day episode and both their moms were going to be in the audience. After that, both Musk and Cyrus quickly changed their tune and Cyrus joked, “forget what I said.” “I will be good-ish,” Musk said before the clip ended. Both Miley and Elon are tight with their moms — Cyrus matriarch Tish Cyrus has managed Miley for 16 years and recently designed Miley’s new 6,800 square-foot home in Southern California. Elon’s mom, Maye Musk, is a fierce supporter of her son’s seemingly never-ending tech ventures and told People Magazine that she knew Elon was a “genius” by the time he’d turned three. While some “SNL” cast members, like Bowen Yang, Aidy Bryant and Chris Redd don’t seem too thrilled about the billionaire hosting this upcoming episode, some fans — and fellow cast member Pete Davidson — are pretty amped to see Musk step into, well, whatever characters he and the “SNL” cast figure out for him. Check out the teaser for Musk’s upcoming “SNL” episode below. ELON MUSK.

Tucker is holding out for a hero to stop COVID safety measures at weddings Kevin Bacon was on Tucker Carlson’s mind Thursday evening — the Fox News host spent several minutes of his show playing clips from Bacon’s 1984 hit movie “Footloose,” comparing the story about a small town that bans dancing to new coronavirus precautions Washington, D.C. mayor Muriel Bowser has enforced that don’t allow dancing at weddings. Previously, weddings weren’t allowed in D.C., but the district will allow them with venues at no more than 25% capacity and without standing or dancing receptions. Other states, like Illinois and Michigan, have similar precautions in place with the like-minded goal of keeping coronavirus infections to a minimum. Tucker cut to an interview Bowser gave on CNN where she defended her decision, and said, “I think there’s a lot of good to a wedding like people starting off their lives together and doing it in a safe way and not doing it in a way that puts themselves or their guests in danger.” Tucker was, predictably, not a fan of the ordinance, and retorted, “Muriel Bowser is one of the least impressive, most irrational political leaders in the history of the country, and her order is among other things, stupid and crazy.” He also repeatedly called Bowser an “Ayatollah mayor,” adding seemingly casual Islamophobia into the rant. Tucker also said that safety isn’t the main concern at wedding functions, throwing in what sure sounded like a bit of casual homophobia. “The most important thing about a wedding is the wedding, it’s the marriage between a man and a woman and if that’s too dangerous for you, don’t come.” “It used to be that only religious crazies, the extremists on the radical right, were against dancing. There was a whole movie about it in 1984,” Tucker said, before cutting to a clip of “Footloose” where Kevin Bacon gives his emotional speech declaring, “this is our time to dance.” “Yeah, Kevin Bacon, an inspiration to potential brides and grooms all across the District of Columbia,” Tucker said. “If you’re as brave as Kevin Bacon, this could be your wedding,” he added, once more cutting to “Footloose.” A few minutes later, Tucker brought on “The Five” co-host Jesse Waters for a horrifically awkward conversation about the no-dancing mandates which included Waters claiming that weddings are a “safe space” for “white guys with no rhythm.” Waters argued that weddings are for dads “the only time of year you can bust a move and not be totally humiliated.” Hey, go ahead and dance like no one is watching, Jesse Waters. Trust us, no one is. Check out the clip at the top of the page, and remember — even a federal judge recognized that Tucker Carlson isn’t a credible source of news, and that no one should interpret his show as delivering facts.

Twitter on Thursday began letting some users add virtual tip jars to accounts so people can support their tweets by tossing in money.
Longtime series regular will have his final episode on May 20 Jackson Avery is checking out of Grey Sloan Memorial. “Grey’s Anatomy” star Jesse Williams is exiting the ABC medical drama later this month, leaving after more than a decade with the show, TheWrap has confirmed. His final episode will air on May 20. “Jesse Williams is an extraordinary artist and activist. Watching his evolution these past 11 years both on screen and off has been a true gift,” showrunner Krista Vernoff said in a statement. “Jesse brings so much heart, such depth of care, and so much intelligence to his work. We will miss Jesse terribly and we will miss Jackson Avery — played to perfection for so many years.” Williams joined the series for Season 6 and was promoted to series regular the following year. His character was a fan-favorite along with Sarah Drew’s April Kepner, who was written off the series ahead of Season 15. Drew returned a heavily teased appearance on Thursday’s episode to give fans a final farewell to the on-screen relationship. Williams’ exit comes as “Grey’s Anatomy” awaits a formal pickup for Season 18. The show has not yet been renewed, but is expected to return for another season pending new deals with several of its main cast members, including series star Ellen Pompeo. “I will forever be grateful for the boundless opportunities provided me by Shonda, the network, studio, fellow cast mates, our incredible crew, Krista, Ellen and Debbie,” Williams said. “As an actor, director and person, I have been obscenely lucky to learn so much from so many and I thank our beautiful fans, who breathe so much energy and appreciation into our shared worlds. The experience and endurance born of creating nearly 300 hours of leading global television is a gift I’ll carry always. I am immensely proud of our work, our impact and to be moving forward with so many tools, opportunities, allies and dear friends.” Deadline first reported the news of Williams’ exit.
