HER Goop brand has sold us everything from orgasm-boosting “love eggs” to vibrator necklaces and candles that smell like her private parts.

The unusual treatment is one of the topics for the second series of her Netflix documentary, The Goop Lab. I’m still getting over the first one.
A TV insider said: “This looks set to be just as candid a look at alternative therapies as the debut season.
“That saw Gwynnie talk about everything from sex to drugs and the manipulation of the body’s energy fields.
“She was seen admitting to taking ecstasy and even had a go at achieving the rock ’n’ roll orgasm in one of the episodes.

“So her dive into the world of vaginal steaming might get equally personal — and that’s before considering all the other wacky topics she’s likely to explore.”
The follow-up series of six 30-minute episodes will also focus on sex, intimacy and female empowerment.
In the first six-part series, which was released last January, Gwyneth also looked at sex toys, psychics and snow yoga.
But during the section where she discussed self-pleasuring methods of climaxing, the Shakespeare In Love star declared that her favourite subject was vaginas.

So the second series, due to finish filming later this year, is likely to feature a lot of what is known as “V-steaming”, not least because she first raved about it on her Goop website.
The specific treatment recommended was a steam using mugwort, which is an aromatic herb used in traditional Oriental medicine, and as a food flavouring.
And even though some experts criticised the suggestion, saying it could cause unhealthy “imbalances” down below, the Oscar-winning actress was a complete convert.
She said: “The first time I tried V-steaming, I was like, ‘This is insane’.

“My friend Ben brought me and I was like, ‘You are out of your f***ing mind. What is this?’ But then by the end of it I was like, ‘This is so great’.
“Then I started to do research, and it’s been in Korean medicine for thousands of years and there are real healing properties.”
I can’t help but wonder what, exactly, it heals . . .

The show is hosted by Sheridan and sees her perform Don’t Rain On My Parade from the musical Funny Girl, which she starred in in 2016.
It will air on Radio 2 this Sunday at 7pm, then BBC1 on February 7 and will be on BBC iPlayer for a year.

FIFTY Shades Of Grey actor Jamie Dornan has landed the lead role in new BBC1 drama The Tourist.
The thriller, written by Harry and Jack Williams, the creators of Liar and The Missing, will be filmed in Australia this year with a cast that also includes Hugo Weaving.
AFTER tapping up stars including Ryan Thomas and Tommy Fury, bosses behind new ITV show The Real Games are keen to inject some glamour.
I can reveal they are going all out – as drag queens Divina De Campo and Cheryl Hole have both been in their sights for the sporting challenge show hosted by Holly Willoughby and Freddie Flintoff.
Jourdan Dunn made a catwalk appearance on RuPaul’s Drag Race
An insider said: “Divina and Cheryl are two of the UK’s most recognisable drag queens and both have been approached about appearing on The Real Games. Bosses think either of them could be a great asset.”
Talking of assets, supermodel Jourdan Dunn makes an appearance on the catwalk during tonight’s episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race on BBC Three.
It is the show where Divina and Cheryl both found fame in 2018. If only Jourdan, who looked angelic in a gold and cream mini dress, also fancied taking part in The Real Games.
I can think of plenty of people who would tune in then.
PUNDIT and ex-footballer Glenn Hoddle has wasted no time cashing in on his stint as Grandfather Clock on The Masked Singer.
The former England boss, and Spurs and Three Lions playmaker, who was unveiled on the show two weekends ago, is charging up to £1,600 for personalised shout-outs on celebrity messaging app Memmo.

He has done everything from wishing Spurs supporters a happy birthday to giving words of support to a fan in rehab.
Punters pay £160 to get a message from Glenn within 24 hours, while businesses can fork out ten times that.
Presumably, a reprise of his cover of Barry Manilow’s Can’t Smile Without You costs extra.
