Sophie Turner has insisted she's not angry that Kit Harington is paid more than her on Game of Thrones because he "had a bigger storyline". The 23-year-old actress plays Sansa Stark in the hit U.S. TV show, and is believed to earn around $206,000 (£158,000) per week for her role on the programme. Meanwhile, Kit, who stars as her half-brother Jon Snow in the series, is understood to take home approximately three times more than his co-star - with weekly earnings of around $700,000 (£537,000). However, while the gender pay gap is a hot topic at the minute, Sophie told Harper's Bazaar magazine that she's not annoyed at the difference in her and Kit's wages - because he has more work to do on the programme. "Kit got more money than me, but he had a bigger storyline," she said. "And for the last series, he had something crazy like 70 night shoots, and I didn't have that many. I was like, 'You know what... you keep that money.'" Elsewhere in the interview, Sophie opened up about her relationship with Jonas Brothers star fiance Joe Jonas. The pair are currently in the midst of planning their wedding, and the screen star revealed that they actually met when Joe direct messaged her on Instagram. "We had a lot of mutual friends and they'd been trying to introduce us for a long time," she smiled. "We were following each other on Instagram and he direct-messaged me one fine day, out of the blue." Gushing about her husband-to-be, Sophie added: "He's lovely. He's just the funniest. You wouldn't expect he's about to turn 30 this year. He's the most fun, energetic, positive person I've ever seen. I'm pessimistic, so we balance each other out."

Pete Davidson has scrapped a stand-up gig at Temple University's Comedy Night Live after ending his engagement to Ariana Grande. The comedian has pulled out of the upcoming college show in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania due to "personal reasons". The Saturday Night Live star's romance with the singer fell apart over the weekend (12-14Oct18), and Ariana has already returned her $100,000 engagement ring to her former fiance. The couple confirmed the engagement news in June (18), a month after Davidson and Ariana started dating. Adam Devine will replace Davidson at the Temple University event. Meanwhile, Grande appears to be struggling on the set of her upcoming Wicked 15th anniversary TV special following her latest love split. The pop star reportedly missed the dress rehearsal on Tuesday (16Oct18), a day after returning to work on A Very Wicked Halloween: Celebrating 15 Years on Broadway, which airs on 29 October (18) in America. "Can't believe I almost let my anxiety ruin this for me today!" the singer captioned an Instagram photo of herself in full make-up backstage. "Not today Satan! Not tomorrow or the next day either not no more u can suck my big green d**k (sic)." She went on to promise fans she was going to "sing my heart out and be a big walking vessel of love". But People.com sources claim she was a no-show. Grande, who is a huge fan of the Wizard of Oz prequel musical, will join original Wicked stars Kristin Chenoweth and Idina Menzel, and Adam Lambert and Pentatonix for the TV special.
