In an announcement which has stunned Xposé fans this afternoon, Jonathan Cheban has pulled out of his highly-publicised guest host slot on the entertainment show.

Kim Kardashian's BFF was set to host the TV3 show today and tomorrow, but according to emerging reports, that dream came to an end before it even started.

Explaining the change of plan to the press and public, Jonathan's manager said: "Due to unforeseen circumstances Jonathan has had to return to NY, we are hoping to reschedule a visit to Ireland very soon."

According to previous reports, the reality star was only dying to get his teeth into some presenting on this side of the pond.

“I’ve done lots of TV in the US and the UK but never in Ireland so I can’t wait," he gushed at the time.

Looks like he's going to have to wait a bit longer…



In an industry utterly obsessed with body image, it's hardly surprising that the incessant scrutiny young actresses find themselves under on a daily basis can eventually take its toll.

Having clearly had her fill of ill-advised remarks pertaining to her appearance, Sarah Hyland decided to address the narrative before highlighting the misconceptions which have been made in relation to her size.


I hear all the kids are wearing chokers now a days. #criticschoiceawards

A post shared by Sarah Hyland (@therealsarahhyland) on

The 26-year-old Modern Family star took to Twitter yesterday to both silence her critics and provide her fans with an insight into the struggles she has endured over the last 12 months.

"I'd like to address something that has not only been brought up on Twitter, but has been HEAVILY discussed by all of you in my Instagram comments. That something is my weight."

Acknowledging that she generally seeks to ignore the dialogue, Sarah admitted that she felt compelled to address it this time around.

"Here goes… I haven't had the greatest year. Maybe one day I'll talk about it but for now I'd like my privacy. I will say this year has brought a lot of changes and with that physical changes.I have been told that I can't work out. Which for me is very upsetting."

Devastated that she has been prevented from training, Sarah continued: "I am not a fan of 'being skinny'".

Having been told to 'eat a burger' and that her 'head was bigger than her body', Sarah said she agreed with her critics, writing: "No one's head should be bigger than their body but considering I've basically been put on bed rest for the past few months, I've lost a lot of muscle mass."

While Sarah is determined to return to full health, she insists that she refuses to let the public's insensitive remarks get to her, writing: "I know that when I get clearance, I will be able to get back to the strong, lean and fabulous self I know I can be."

And in a move which illustrates Sarah's understanding of her vulnerability in the public eye, she concluded by writing: "My self confidence is not rendered from your comments."

"I will always be too fat. I will always be too skinny. I will never have enough curves to be called a real woman, And I will always be a slut for wearing a push up bra."


When you don't feel well you're supposed to post vain pictures of yourself correct?

Finishing by encouraging her fans to err on the side of positivity, she wrote: "Smile, Laugh, Love, Be happy. Support your peers. Love. Work hard. Be confident. Love."

Sarah's post has been inundated with supportive comments from fans who encouraged the actress to stay positive in spite of her poor health.

"You're such an inspiration! Sending positive vibes your way and a quick recovery," wrote one.

Sarah, who rose to fame playing Hayley Dunphy in the smash hit sitcom, had a kidney transplant in 2012.



Perhaps best known for playing James Bond, actor Roger Moore has died at the age of 89.

Taking to Twitter to share the heartbreaking news with the star's fans and followers, Roger's family released a statement announcing his passing.

"With the heaviest of hearts, we must share the awful news that our father, Sir Roger Moor2, passed away today," read the post. "We are all devastated."

The typed statement photographed in the Twitter post paid tribute to the actor's life and the impact he has made over the course of the last 89 years.

"It is with a heavy heart that we must announce our loving father, Sir Roger Moore, has passed away today in Switzerland after a short but brave battle with cancer. The love with which he was surrounded in his final days was so great it cannot be quantified in words alone."

"We know our own love and admiration will be magnified many times over, across the world, by people who knew him for his films, his television shows and his passionate work for UNICEF which he considered to be his greatest achievement."

"The affection our father felt whenever he walked on to a stage or in front of a camera buoyed him hugely and kept him busy working in his 90th year, through to his last appearance in November 2016 on stage at London's Royal Festival Hall."

After recalling that memorable night last year, Roger's children wrote: "Thank you Pops for being you, and for being special to so many people."

Tributes to the legendary performer have already begun pouring in as Hollywood comes to terms with the death of a much-loved and respected actor.






It's been six years since the world watched Pippa Middleton's older sister make her way up the aisle at Westminister Abbey to marry Prince William.

And while Pippa made an impact all of her own the day she acted as bridesmaid to Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, the 33-year-old will take centre stage as the bride at her own wedding to James Matthews later today.

Much has been made about Pippa's big day; from the guest list to her bridal party, but like anything to do with the royal family and the plethora of high-profile names contained within its inner circle, not everyone is enthused by the constant coverage.

And as a result, Twitter is, unsurprisingly, lit this morning, with some members of the public only dying to share in the excitement and others… well… not so much.












As most fans of Emma Stone would know, the much-loved actress has spent much of her life navigating an anxiety disorder.

And in an effort to share her experience with fellow sufferers, the La La Land actress teamed up with Child Mind Institute, and revealed that her coping mechanism hinges on her abiility to acknowledge the fact that anxiety ebbs and flows.

“It’s so nice to know that, in those moments of real intensity, it will shift, and it will change, and there’s a lot that I can do to help myself," she said.

When asked what she would tell her younger self when dealing with anxiety, she said: "Life goes in stages and it has always been something that I've lived with and flares up in big ways at different times in my life."

"But sometimes while it's happening when I'm in a phase of real turmoil or the anxiety is very strong and it feels like it's never going to end, but it does."

Emma reminded sufferers that she has learned how to manage the condition and encouaged them to seek tools which enable them to deal with it as well.

At a time when feminist rhetoric is (rightfully) taking centre stage, it takes a brave woman to reveal she has – on some level – internalised a misogynistic narrative, and allowed it to cloud her judgement at times.

While reflecting on her role in One Day, Anne Hathaway admitted that she feels a sense of shame over her perspective on the work created by the film's female director, Lone Scherfig.

"I am to this day scared that the reason I didn’t trust her the way I trust some of the other directors I work with is because she’s a woman," the 34-year-old admitted.

"I’m so scared that I treated her with internalised misogyny. I’m scared that I didn’t give her everything that she needed or I was resisting her on some level." she continued.

And Anne admits that this wasn't an isolated event, revealing that she often adjusts her perspective depending on the gender of the director.

"It’s something that I’ve thought a lot about in terms of when I get scripts to be directed by women. When I get a script, when I see a first film directed by a woman, I have in the past focused on what was wrong with it."

"And when I see a film directed by a man, I focus on what’s right with it," she added. "I had actively tried to work with female directors, and I still had this mindset buried in there somewhere."

Acknowledging the backlash she may receive as a result of her admission, Anne insists she is aware how this may be perceived and is actively working on adjusting her stance.

"It feels like a confession, but I think it’s something we should talk about… I can only acknowledge that I’ve done that and I don’t want to do that any more."

Despite her apparent regret, Anne has revealed that she has never apologised to Lone directly, but intends to do so

Oh, and while we have you; don't forget to have your say in the inaugural SHEmazing Awards this May! It's time to vote, and you can do it right here!



Shannon Purser, who rose to fame in Stranger Things, and now stars on Riverdale made the decision to share an insight into a deeply personal aspect of her life on Twitter today.

In the aftermath of a discussion where the actress appeared to insult fans of characters Betty Cooper and Veronica Lodge, Shannon clarified her stance on the matter.


Get ready to meet Ethel Muggs! Watch Riverdale on the CW tonight!!!

After being accused of 'queerbaiting' on the social media platform late last night, she felt compelled to open up about her own sexuality.

Addressing her critics, Shannon explained that she recently came out as bisexual to friends and family, and was ignorant of the term 'queerbaiting'.

"I don't normally do this, but I figure now is as good a time as any to get personal," Shannon began in the post.

"I've only just recently came out as bisexual to my family and friends. It's something I am still processing and  trying to understand and I don't like talking about it too much."

"I'm very, very new to the LGBT community. I have never heard the term 'queerbaiting' in my life until today. That being said I have never ever wanted to alienate anyone and my tweet was thoughtless."


why do I keep doing my makeup on days when I have nothing to do

A post shared by Shannon Purser (@shannonpurser) on

"I wasn't referring to all the beronica shippers, just the ones who had been particularly cruel to me personally. Either way it wasn't a wise or kind thing to say and I'm disappointed in myself, especially as a Christian who has always been taught to speak love to others."

"Thank you to all the people who kindly reached out to me and educated me about the reality your feelings about queerbaiting and I apologise to those who were hurt."

Shannon was inundated with messages of support following her decision to open up last night.



Drake has caused uproar on Instagram today after he took aim at a private residential community and country club by accusing them of 'racial profiling'.

The Hotline Bling singer shared the establishment's logo on his private account and insisted that his stay there during Coachella festivities had been far from harmonious.

Drake, who appeared as a secret guest of Future's during his Coachella slot on Saturday, shared his thoughts on The Madison Club earlier today, and ultimately stirred up one hell of a publicity storm in the process.

"The most offensive place I have ever stayed at in my life with staff who pick and choose who they are going to accommodate based on racial profiling," he wrote in the post which has amassed more than 200,000 likes in just eight hours.

Whether it was Drake's intention or not, The Madison Club has been inundated with scathing remarks and reviews from Drake fans ever since the singer's comments began circulating earlier today.

Responding to the post, one Instagram user wrote: "Welp.There goes their establishment lmfao."

The Madison Club has, however, yet to respond to the star's accusations.



Harry Styles has never been known for his acting skills, but that is all set to change this summer with the release of Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk

Given his lack of experience, it came as quite a surprise to all of us when the singer was cast in the much-anticipated film.

Speaking to The LA Times, Christopher defended his casting decision, saying that the One Direction star simply ‘had it’.

“When we put the cast together, we had some established names.”

He continued: “But for the guys on the beach, we really wanted young unknowns. He’s not that unknown, but he’d never done anything as an actor before. So he auditioned."

"I auditioned literally thousands of young men with different combinations of young men. And he had it.”

The 23-year-old said goodbye to his signature locks for the role and when asked if Harry was hesitant about getting his hair chopped, Chris replied “I don’t want to get into it.”

Which could either mean that the director didn’t want to waste time answering irrelevant questions or Harry had a major strop and Christopher is still sore about it?

The singer-turned-actor recently spoke about the experience with Dermot O’Leary on BBC Radio 2’s Saturday Breakfast.

“It was one of the best experiences of my life. Honestly it was amazing, it was a real challenge.''

He added: “I mean, I really loved being the new guy. I loved kind of being so far out of my comfort zone. It felt really good to kind of have no idea what I was doing for a little bit.”

Harry is in good company for his acting debut, joining a stellar cast of Tom Hardy, Mark Rylance, Kenneth Branagh and Cillian Murphy. 

Dunkirk is due to hit Irish cinemas on July 21. 



Along with Adele, Taylor Swift and his wife Beyoncé, Jay Z has decided to remove a substantial portion of his material from music streaming service Spotify.

Despite being the co-owner of rival service Tidal, which was launched in 2015, the rapper had kept his music on Spotify up until now, but decided to change tack in recent days.

Reports suggest that Jay Z's decision may be the result of Tidal's poor performance, with Billboard recently reporting: "The self-proclaimed more artist-friendly service trails leaders Spotify (50 million subscribers as of last count), Apple Music (20 million as of last official count), and Amazon (never says, but when bundled with Amazon Prime could be well over 10 million)."

"Tidal’s subscription numbers are thought to be under 3 million and perhaps on par with competitors Deezer and Napster," they added.

Jay Z has removed nine of his 12 albums from Spotify, leaving only; In My Lifetime Vol. 1’, ‘Reasonable Doubt' and ‘Vol. 2 Hard Knock Life’, 'Collision Course’ and some singles.

Spotify confirmed the reports, announcing: "Some of [Jay Z’s] catalogue has been removed at the request of the artist."

The rapper bought Tidal for $56 million in 2015.



Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis are undeniably one of Hollywood’s cutest couples.

Although the pair are known for keeping a relatively low profile, Ashton has never been shy about letting everyone know just how loved up they are.

Over the weekend, Ashton, who has been known to work closely with local schools and communities, was presented with the Robert D. Ray Pilliar Character Award for demonstrating "good character as a role model" at a ceremony in his native Iowa.

Ashton began his 16- minute acceptance speech by joking that he was probably the only person to ever receive the award who was once "pulled over by a state trooper while tripping on mushrooms".

The actor then quickly turned his attention to his children and wife Mila, who was in the audience at the time. In an emotional tribute he praised Mila, saying: "I mean, I'm telling you, this morning, I woke up and she kicked my ass on character,"

He continued: "I thought I was awesome because I got up early and helped with the kids before she woke up and I let her sleep a little bit and then she's like, 'Well, now you're gonna act tired? I do it every day.' But it was a character moment, right? Because she's right!"

The actor also spoke fondly of his parents saying how he actually felt lucky after they got divorced because they ended up marrying ‘’amazing’’ people.

"As long as you have love and kindness and optimism and a pursuit of something greater in your heart, you're the lucky one"

"So this award is for you. It is for my family, it's for all four of my parents, it's for my wife, who kicks my ass on character every day."

Ashton and Mila first met on the set of hit comedy series That '70s Show back in 1998, but romance wasn’t on the cards for the couple until 2012.

The pair have been happily married since 2015 and have been our ultimate couple goals ever since! 



In the wake of  Zayn Malik and Niall Horan's respective solo releases, it's hardly surprising pressure was on Harry Styles ahead of his first solo endeavour.

But it looks like the former 1D singer need not have worried if the reaction on Twitter is anything to go by this morning.

The singer's first solo single, Sign of the Times, dropped today, and it looks like people are pretty impressed, with more than a few passing references to David Bowie circulating online.

An apparent departure from the signature One Direction sound, the 23-year-old has knocked it out of the park with this one…
