KATE Beckinsale and US comedian Kathy Griffin stripped down to colourful swimwear for a "bikini battle" at a house party. Controversial Kathy, 57, were a bright yellow set while Kate, 45, wowed in red and both women wore heeled boots. With guests gathered, the duo strutted their stuff down the stairs to the sound of cheers. They turned the ground floor into their own catwalk, sashaying hand in hand across the tiled floor. The pals then play fought, slapping and pushing each other before heading back upstairs. Kathy shared the video on Instagram and wrote: "Last night, I hosted gay game night at my home. "I love @KateBeckinsale, but she’s never had any real competition in the beauty department. I decided to challenge her to a bikini contest. Let me tell you...she still doesn’t know what hit her. Sorry Kate." Kate recently shared pictures of herself trying out goat yoga after the bizarre trend appeared on Countryfile earlier this year.

AFTER years matchmaking desperate reality TV wannabes, Caroline Flack is now set to marry one. The Sun on Sunday last weekend revealed the Love Island host’s engagement to Apprentice and Celebrity Big Brother housemate Andrew Brady. Just weeks earlier Caroline, 38, had dumped him amid cheating rumours and concerns he was using her name to boost his career. Pals worry she has taken a major gamble on Andrew, 27. Just six months ago he told industry figures he was desperate for the trappings of fame and planned to bag a famous girl.
