Stop everything.

Rumours of a Friends reunion have been circulating for years, and now our prayers have finally been answered.

Friends! The Musical is happening.

Yes, that’s right. Prepare to get up close and personal with some of television's most loved characters –Ross, Rachel, Phoebe, Monica, Joey and Chandler are back, only this time they’ll be live on stage, belting out a tune or two.

According to The Huffington Post, the song list includes some hilariously titled hits such as:

  • We Were on a Break!

  • How You Doing, Ladies?

  • The Only Coffee Shop in New York City

  • Oh. My. God. It’s Janice!

  • Could I BE Any More… in Love with Monica?

  • We’ll Always Be There For You

Although the show is not officially endorsed by the creators of the sitcom, the script will focus entirely on the original gang and is set to include some of their most memorable hijinks.

The stage show was written by Bob and Tobly McSmith who have had off-Broadway success with their musical parodies of 90210 and Keeping up with the Kardashians.

Friends! The Musical will open in New York’s Triad Theater this autumn, and with no further shows scheduled, we can only wait in hope that the spectacle will make it across the pond!   

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!

If you're one of the millions who still knows the lyrics to My Lovely Horse off by heart, you may need to sit down before reading on.

According to emerging reports, the people behind our beloved Fr Ted are not adverse to the notion of bringing Craggy Island, and the folk who populate it, to the big stage.

Speaking to the Sunday Business Post, the show's creator, Graham Linehan, acknowledged that the transition would have to facilitate a fairly whopper storyline.

"It would have to be about Ted becoming Pope, or some weird succession thing that means Ted’s next in line. It would have to be substantial and big," he argued.

"I think there is an argument you could make a Ted musical where you really go for the jugular and you get all the things people loved about it, all the innocence and all the sweetness, but introduce a harder edge."

Anyone else see Graham Norton reprising the role of Fr. Noel Furlong for this one?!

If you lived and breathed Breaking Bad, then we really think you are going to like Better Call Saul. 

And if you haven't already seen it? Then good for you, because you will soon have three whole seasons to binge watch. 

The brand new season follows the life of Albuquerque’s most notorious criminal lawyer.

Set six years before he meets Walter White, Jimmy McGill, played by Bob Odenkirk, is building his practice and making a name for himself in the game. 

The critically acclaimed second season ended with a pair of major cliffhangers., so fans will be delighted to see that the new season is coming soon.

The anticipated season lands in your Netflix "new" section on Tuesday, April 11, so stock up on some snacks because we all know that this show is binge-watch worthy. 

 

Fancy being a bit of a TV star? Well, now is your chance.

The casting company which is behind Game of Thrones is opening a branch in Dublin this Saturday.

To celebrate the opening, The Extras Department, is hosting an open call and producers will be on the look out for actors for small TV roles.

As well as Game of Thrones, the casting company is also involved in productions such as The Fall and Line of Duty.

Taking place in Bow Street, Smithfield, producers says that acting experience isn't necessary.

"This event is for new members, people who would like us to help them set up an effective profile and work as an extra in Film and TV productions across Ireland.

"Current members are more than welcome to drop in and say hello. We can even update your measurements with you, put up a new profile picture and catch up on what's going on.

"Make sure to bring along a copy of your ID (Passport) in order to complete your profile."

As opening credits go, Sex and the City is pretty memorable.

From the iconic tutu to the snapshot into a busy New York street, the guys behind the hit HBO series definitely nailed it.

But it looks like it took a few versions if recent footage doing the rounds online is anything to go by.

A 35-second clip, which was uploaded to YouTube yesterday, shows the writer in an almost identical set-up, but without the trademark tutu and unfortunate showering.

Take a look at this…

If there's one show which is guaranteed to bring us out in a sweat, it's Don't Tell the Bride.

The thoughts of leaving the entire wedding (and the choosing of the gown) in the hands of the groom doesn't exactly inspire confidence in many brides-to-be.

And that's why it makes for such good TV.

The latest couple to take part in the emotional rollercoaster that is the RTÉ show are Nikki and Jamie who met on Plenty of Fish five years ago, 

And in keeping with the aquatic theme, Jamie opted for a blue gown for the big day.

Tune into RTÉ2 tonight at 10pm to see how Jamie's theme went down…

 

We'll be honest, our Sunday nights wouldn't be complete without an hour with Dermot Bannon and the crew.

From arguing over whether dado rails are passé to debating the merits of a skylight, Room To Improve brings out the architect or interior designer in all of us.

And while we all know the show is hugely popular up and down the country, a quick scroll through Twitter during its broadcast proves just how into the programme the good folk of Ireland truly get.

Whether they're rooting for a couple, questioning their choice of drawer handle or remarking on Dermot's love of windows, Twitter gets involved.

And last night, they got REALLY involved when Mary, her son Darragh and her daughter-in-law Sarah decided to reconstruct the family home…

 

 

 

 

 

If you have ever worked from home, you'll know it's a lot harder than it sounds.

From endless distractions (the fridge) to the conduct of those around you (family members), trying to be in any way productive is damn near impossible.

But, at least, no actually sees the chaos which ensues when you attempt to act professional around family members who couldn't care less… unless you're Professor Robert E Kelly, that is.

During a slot on BBC World News earlier, the academic discussed the situation in South Korea without realising how determined his children were to get in on the act.

We'll let Robert and his family take it from here…

 

Between Kim's robbery, Kanye's breakdown and Kourtney's relationship struggles, the last year has been a tumultuous one for the Kardashian family.

And while their fans tend to follow their every move on social media, their desire to see the events play out in a handy 60-minute package courtesy of E! doesn't seem to be waning.

Mere hours after the trailer for the upcoming Keeping With The Kardashians series debuted online, the clip amassed more than a quarter of a million views on YouTube.

"This season is gonna be drama af," wrote one internet user after catching a glimpse of the upset that unfolded in the aftermath of various high-profile incidents.

"Crying. My queen Kim I'm not ready for these episodes," added another.

Take a look at this…

 

In a recent televised interview, Lisa Kudrow revealed that she had been subjected to misogynistic remarks while filming hit sitcom Friends.

Recalling the event while appearing on Watch What Happens Next, Lisa, who played Phoebe Buffay for ten years, explained that a guest star had obviously taken exception to her decision not to wear make-up during the show's rehearsals.

Speaking to host Andy Cohen, 53-year-old Lisa said: "I rehearsed without make-up for most of the week. And then, on show night, I'm in hair and make-up and I was told, 'Oh wow, now you're – can I say it?'"

Breaking off to check with Andy whether she should reveal the true nature of the remark, Lisa continued: "'Now you're f**kable.'

While Lisa refused to reveal who was responsible for the reprehensible comment, the actress did admit that she confided in a co-star in the aftermath.

"I told Matt LeBlanc,' Lisa laughed. 'He's like a big brother.' 

And yes, we're all racking our brains as to who would have said it…

Let It Shine viewers were left fuming over the weekend after the BBC One programme omitted particular lines of a Lady Gaga track which Iron Sun performed on Saturday night.

Taking to the stage with Born This Way, the band left the audience at home reeling when they paused mid-track, and ultimately left out lyrics pertaining to be gay and transgender.

"Don't be a drag, just be a queen" and "No matter gay, straight, or bi, lesbian, transgendered life. I’m on the right track baby. I was born to survive” did not make it to the live performance, and Twitter was far from happy.

"@BBC how dare you butcher #BornThisWay on #letitshine, removing the lyrics from the song that give it its meaning and power. SHAME ON YOU!" wrote one furious Twitter user.

"#letitshine how can you sing born this way without mentioning anything about equality and diversity ??? It's the point of the song," added another.

Responding to criticism, a spokesperson for the BBC show insisted that the nature of the lyrics were inconsequential, saying: "All songs featured on the show were cut for time only."
