Elton John and his husband, David Furnish, hosted an “epic dinner” this week, with guests including Dua Lipa, record producer Andrew Watt and some of the stars of Netflix’s Heartstopper – including Kit Connor, who played a young Elton in the movie Rocketman.

Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton have taken up a new hobby: gardening. Gwen tells E! News one of her New Year’s resolutions is to get better at it. “[W]e had a failed gardening year this year,” she said. “I mean, we had a lot of things against us. There was a drought, so that happened. But, we are gonna get smarter and we’re gonna have some success next year.”
