  MasterChef Australia winner LEAKED? The MasterChef Australia winner may have been leaked, according to a new report. Betting agency Sportsbet has listed Justin Narayan as the most likely winner with odds of $1.28. Kishwar Chowdhury is in second place at $5.50, followed in third place by Pete Campbell at $7.00. © Provided by Daily Mail ( The popularity of Justin Narayan, who has not been a favourite to win, has raised some suspicions among fans. It is also being considered unusual that tattoo artist Pete, who has been considered a frontrunner, has dropped into the third position.

The Flash returned from its winter break right where it left off, with Barry Allen facing a prison sentence following the death of Clifford DeVoe, aka The Thinker. Most of the episode devoted its time to Barry' s trial, as the forensic scientist faced an air-tight case against him, but while Team Flash was too busy saving Central City from potential nuclear blasts or finding a way to get Barry off the hook, another Somehow, Iris West was able to interact with Barry at super-speed. This mysterious turn of events might hold important significance, not just for the remainder of the season , but the future of the series.

The Flash season 7 is already hinting at Iris West ' s pregnancy ahead of the coming arrival of Bart Allen , a.k.a. Impulse, later this year. A big Flash Family character that is set to make his Arrowverse debut this season is the futuristic hero Impulse. Jordan Fisher is bringing him to life as the second actor to portray Bart in live-action following Smallville' s Kyle But since Barry had that illusion of Iris , it definitely seems like that at some point this year, they'll be expecting, if not next season. Whether or not that carries into The Flash season 8 , potentially including Fisher' s Impulse, remains to be seen.

WARNING: If you have not watched the season 7 finale of The Flash, "Heart of the Matter Pt. 2," race out of here immediately. For everyone else, let's run full speed into those spoilers...

They've said "I do"... again!

Tonights' season 7 finale of The Flash gave the fans something we've been waiting years to see: a #WestAllen vow renewal -- and the ceremony was even better than we could've hoped for.

From Iris' (Candice Patton) gorgeous coral gown, to Barry's (Grant Gustin) tear-jerking vows and a surprise musical performance from their speedster son, Bart, aka the ultra-talented Jordan Fisher, this was certainly the sweetest wedding in the Arrowverse.

  A long way from home: The child ‘house helpers’ of Nigeria Hundreds of underage girls work as domestic help in cities across Nigeria.Inside, 12-year-old Aisha* moves around, doing chores and serving guests. She is one of many underage girls working as domestic help – commonly called “house girls” – in cities across Nigeria.

Iris Ann West - Allen (née West; born June 24, 1989) is the co-leader of Team Flash , a former journalist of Central City Picture News, a former waitress at CC Jitters, a psychology graduate student, and the owner/editor of The Central City Citizen.

Iris West - Allen is likely pregnant , based on the hints in The Flash season 7, episode 10, "Family Matters, Part 1." Fans of the Arrowverse series have known for a long time that Iris and Barry would eventually start a family. Not only do they do so in the comics, but viewers met their future Arrowverse daughter, Nora West - Allen aka XS, in season 4. After helping Team Flash defeat Cicada, this version of their daughter faded from existence; however, the experience clearly left Barry and Iris yearning to start a family.

To celebrate the re-newlyweds, ET called up The Flash's executive producer and showrunner, Eric Wallace, for an in-depth conversation about why it was time for Barry and Iris to finally have the nuptials this couple deserves.

Plus, is Iris pregnant? Will Impulse return? And could season 8 be the final year of The Flash? We've got answers to all your biggest questions and so much more in the interview below!

ET: Congratulations! You knocked out an entire season of The Flash in the midst of a global pandemic. How are you feeling?

Eric Wallace: I'm exhausted. [Laughs] Honestly I just want to take a nap, but thank you for saying that. It was a labor of love -- emphasis on the word labor. This was the most difficult season of television that I've ever experienced and I think the cast and crew would probably agree. It's not something that we want to repeat, but it did have the effect of bringing us all closer together. Boy, did we get to know each other a lot better over this last year! [Laughs] But it paid dividends and hopefully you see those onscreen.

Government Blacklisted Her for Smoking Legal Medical Marijuana While Pregnant

  Government Blacklisted Her for Smoking Legal Medical Marijuana While Pregnant It’s called the Central Registry and Lindsay R.’s name will be on it for up to 25 years, along with countless Arizona parents accused of abusing or neglecting their children. Her addition to the list cost her a social-work job and could disqualify her from getting dozens of others. Her offense? She used medical marijuana with a prescription, in a state where it’s legal, while she was pregnant—to counter the effects of a dangerous condition that causes excessive vomiting. “At the beginning [I was fighting] for personal reasons: I want to keep my job; I don’t want it on there that I neglected him,” Lindsay told The Daily Beast as she battles to clear her name.

Iris West has rarely been shown as a damsel in distress in the comics. While Lois Lane was often in need of Superman' s help, Iris tended to keep out of danger while still reporting on the events that happened in Central City. After learning that Barry Allen was Flash , Iris became his closest confidant, and that has never changed. Iris ' s history as a reporter is as much a part of her character as her relationship with Barry Allen . To take it away from her would essentially break the character. While the show has struggled to give time to Iris ' s career, her investigative nature is always front and center.

We ended season 7 with the most wonderful and happiest of endings: We got the West-Allen vow renewal! Eric, how did this idea come about and did it have anything to do with ET's interviews with Grant Gustin and Candice Patton about a redo wedding over the years?

[Laughs] It's funny because I think I was there when that happened and I was standing off to the side during their interview at Comic-Con. But what's funny is that I actually had that idea as well as several members of the writing staff and we've actually been talking about this, believe it or not, since season 4. Because the minute we saw how they got married as an afterthought with Oliver and Felicity -- not that we didn't love those episodes -- but literally we got back into the office after that and we were like, "Yeah, we've got to do that again and we've got to get them a real wedding because this just can't be the ending."

Katherine Schwarzenegger Says Premarital Counseling With Chris Pratt Was the 'Most Amazing Gift'

  Katherine Schwarzenegger Says Premarital Counseling With Chris Pratt Was the 'Most Amazing Gift' The author tied the knot with Chris Pratt in 2019."In the Catholic Church, you have to do premarital counseling before you get married, and I was like, 'Oh my god, what is that going to be like?' It was the most amazing thing and just the most amazing gift," she said. "I know not everybody does [it], of course, because... if they don't tell you you have to do it then why would you? But for us... it was such an amazing gift in our relationship ahead of getting married that we've definitely wanted to continue throughout our relationship.

What is your favorite era of human history? Then there' s SOME OF the West - Allen fans who purposely go into the "Snowbarry" tags on social media just to harass Overall, YES, GAWD YES, Iris is the most annoying and most useless character of the entire show and quite possibly That whole Saving Iris storyline pretty much killed all of season three for me and the fact that she’ s now leader

We consider any Flash episode aired within the past two weeks & a month for season finales spoilers, including other Arrowverse shows. Barry Allen is the Flash ! To view the spoiler, simply click the box. That would be the idea. Iris is already pregnant but they just don't know it yet. Hopefully next season we can have Iris give birth during the crossover event and just as her waters break Felicity

So it's been in my mind for four years and I've been waiting for the chance to do it. So when I heard you interview them and say it, I'm laughing inside, right? [Laughs] I can't tell you and I'm just like, "Please, just be patient, I swear to you, it's going to happen! I swear, I swear!" and then you did it again and I was like, "Oh, come on!" So I thought it was charming and wonderful because I was like, "Wow, she's on the same page as the writing staff, this is great!"

And we thought the vow renewal was so great especially because Bart seems to have inherited Barry's amazing singing abilities. Talk to us about that song and how that musical moment with Jordan Fisher came about.

Two things, I had worked with Jordan before on Teen Wolf and I knew how talented he was, not just as an actor but because of his Broadway experience -- obviously, he was in Hamilton -- and I knew he could sing, so that was always in the back of my mind. I was just like, "Oh, wouldn't it be great to have him sing once we cast him as Impulse?" But I needed an excuse for him to sing and then I went, "Wait a minute -- vow renewal ceremony!" So I was like, all right, we know when he's going to sing, now what is he going to sing? At first, the truth is he was going to sing a cover song by a well-known artist, but we won't mention that artist because we didn't get the rights to that song. [Laughs]

Colorado flooding kills 1, mudslides block roadways as flash floods force rescues in Southeast

  Colorado flooding kills 1, mudslides block roadways as flash floods force rescues in Southeast Flooding is causing major problems for communities around the U.S. this year, damaging homes and infrastructure.Three others were declared missing in the area – which had been burned by the 2020 Cameron Peak Fire – and drones were deployed to aid in the search, according to the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office.

So I was sitting around at my house and I'm a big Jonah Mutono fan and I have had his album for the last year and I play it all the time, it's in every rotation and my favorite song off of GERG is "1949." It makes me cry every time I hear it because I'm a super romantic and sappy dude. I'm sitting there and after we learned that the song I wanted Jordan to sing we couldn't do because we couldn't get the rights, I pivoted in literally -- I think it was 15 seconds -- I said, "I know exactly what song he should be singing." And we reached out to Jonah and Jonah, in the world's greatest synchronicity, told us, "Oh my goodness, you don't understand. I wrote this song for my best friend's wedding. It's meant to be a wedding song." And he was like, "How did you know?" And I was like, "I didn't know, I just got the feels! I just love it." So it's synchronicity, it was supposed to happen. It was in the stars.

We love the fact that Iris got married in that gorgeous coral-colored lace gown. How did you decide to settle on that color for her?

I told them, "We need to be very clear that she cannot wear a white wedding dress." I felt like if she wore a white wedding dress, Nazis were going to suddenly show up and ruin their wedding and it's season 4 again and I'm going to have a flashback and I just can't handle that. So once I gave the edict of no white dress, it was wide open at that point and I said to Candice and to [The Flash's costume designer] Kate [Main], "Find something that you like." And I left it to them and they showed me some choices and I went, "Do you like that one?" and they said, "We love this one," and so I said, "Go for it! That is amazing." and it was that simple.

And it was so amazing to have Nora (Jessica Parker Kennedy) and Bart be right by Barry and Iris' sides during the vow renewal. It made the scene feel even more special. What was your goal in having the West-Allen family all together for this scene?

I like happy endings. I always knew that I wanted the vow renewal -- and did you notice [something different] at the end of this finale? Usually we go to credits and there's a tag that sets up next year's villain, but we didn't do that this year on purpose. I didn't want anything spoiling the joy of that wedding. That's what I wanted to leave everybody with as a thank you because last year they got a cliffhanger that nobody planned and it was a little tough and this was a gift to the audience. And I also knew that the kids were part of this and needed to be present. We needed the whole family there because I want this to resonate in their characters because you may see a little more of Jordan and Jessica next season and I want them to be able to refer back to that event in the present tense of "Yes, I remember because I was there."

You wrapped up this season with so much of a bow. Was there ever talks of having this episode serve as the series finale of The Flash instead of the season 7 finale?

No, but you are very astute. I deliberately wrote that scene with Kelly Wheeler, who is just a phenomenal writer, and we talked about this and I said, "Look, when we get to this ending, I want it to feel with all the joy and grandeur of a series finale, but not be a series finale." Because that means that we've literally pushed all the drama and the emotions as far as we could. Because usually the ending of a show is the most tears, the most joy and all that stuff and I'm like, "Why would we wait until the end of the show?" It's been a dark, bad year. Let's give the audience some joy! And so then it became a very easy decision.

Well, you know what they say, right? First comes love, then comes marriage, (then a vow renewal) -- and then comes the West-Allen baby carriage! What are the chances of Iris becoming pregnant in season 8?

Well, it's so funny because in some ways it's anticlimactic because we've already seen their kids, so we already know that they have kids, right? We already know what's going to happen. So in season 8, we have a few other challenges for Barry and Iris that we need to kind of explore that are related to pregnancy and family and all that stuff, but don't directly deal with that because it's kind of, I feel like, anticlimactic. We know that the kids already exist, it's just a matter of when, you know what I mean? I'm not saying for instance that next year is the finale, like the series finale, but it feels like that's the kind of thing you would do in the series finale. Like, "Oh, she's pregnant! The end." You know what I mean? So I hope that's not the case next year. I want to keep this thing going.

Which leads us directly into our next question which is, do you anticipate that season 8 of The Flash could be the final season of the series?

You know what's funny, I get asked this question all the time and I honestly don't know. We approach writing the show as if every episode is the last Flash story we ever get to tell and every season is the last. We don't leave anything behind, so in case we are informed of bad news, we don't have to pivot or anything like that. I will say this, regardless of what's happening next year, I already know what the season finale is for next year and believe it or not, it's bigger and even crazier. Oh yes!

I try to plan each season like a movie and you need to know the ending of your movie before you start writing it, so I kind of have a master plan every year. We use our graphic novel format because I'm a big comic book guy and we break it into two or we break it into three or whatever and, you know, there's some interludes as there were in this last year in between them. But essentially, thematically all the graphic novels support and tell the same story, which leads to one unified thematic ending and so that's what we'll be doing again next year. I hope it's not the last. I really hope not.
