10 years


It has been 10 years this month since Madeleine McCann, who would now be 14 years old, disappeared while on holidays with her family in Portugal.

Her parents Kate and Gerry McCann have posted an emotive message to the public to mark the moment.

Taking to the Official Find Madeleine Campaign Facebook page, her parents had this to say:

'Ten years- there's no easy way to say it, describe it, accept it.'

'I remember when Madeleine first disappeared I couldn’t even begin to consider anything in terms of years.'

'Shawn Hornbeck abducted and kept hidden for over four years, Natascha Kampusch for over eight years. I couldn't go there. And now here we are…Madeleine, our Madeleine- ten years.'

'Most days are similar to the rest – another day. May 3rd 2017 – another day. But ten years – a horrible marker of time, stolen time.'

'We are bracing ourselves for the next couple of weeks.'

'It's likely to be stressful and painful and more so given the rehashing of old 'stories', misinformation, half-truths and downright lies which will be doing the rounds in the newspapers, social media and 'special edition' TV programmes.'

The McCanns also expressed a feeling of hope for themselves and their family moving into the future.

'The two themes that seem most appropriate to me as we reach this ten year mark are perseverance and gratitude.'

'We will go on, try our hardest, never give up and make the best of the life we have.'

The police investigation into the disappearance of  Madeline McCann is ongoing. 


It’s been ten years since The Hills first appeared on our screens and while we’ve always fancied our chances in a game of Hills trivia, today we learned something rather unexpected – that Kim Kardashian West could have been in the show!

Feel free to take a minute, we understand.

Last night a celebratory episode of the hit reality show aired on MTV and possibly the most shocking aspect of The Hills: That Was Then, This Is Now was the revelation that before Kim Kardashian became the biggest reality star of all time, she was filmed hanging in the Hills at Heidi Montag’s party.

According to The Daily Mail, the footage was filmed just one year before Kim’s infamous sex tape made her notorious worldwide and, in what now feels like some kind of awkward parallel universe, the old clips show Kim receiving a tour of Heidi’s gaff.

Bizarrely during the guided walk-through, Kim asks Heidi what her aquarium is, to which Heidi replies: “These are our jellyfish.  We’re the only people in America to have jellyfish.”

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star was then filmed telling her stepbrother Brody Jenner – who went on to become a regular Hills fixture – that she was going to Vegas to celebrate Memorial Day.

In a decision which could have altered reality TV history, Kim’s scenes were cut from the show and despite still being connected to Heidi and co Kim never again appeared in The Hills.

What a world we live in…

So the entire internet freaked out over this poster declaring an episode called “The One After The 10 Year Break.”

If you were one of those people (and ALL of us were) then we have some bitterly disappointing news.

It’s 100% completely and utterly fake. Say it isn’t so!

The image was created by a fan who explained it was never supposed to go viral: “I’m very sorry for any confusion caused. I have to say that the poster wasn’t created with the intention to upset, anger or fool anyone.”

We forgive him, but could the powers that be please make this happen?! We don’t even need a movie, an episode will do.

Just like the good ol’ days…



Can you BELIEVE it’s been a whole 10 years since Mean Girls was released? Scary!

To celebrate the birthday of one the best high school comedies of all time, here are 10 totally fetch things you probably didn’t know about Mean Girls.

1. Lindsay Lohan’s character Cady is named after Elizabeth Cady Stanton, a feminist and groundbreaker in the Women’s Rights Movement. Writer Tina Fey regularly tips her hat to iconic figures of the feminist movement in her work. Right on!

2. Before Mean Girls producer Lorne Michaels decided that Amanda Seyfried would be best cast as the “dumb girl,” she was supposed to play Cady!

3. Lindsay Lohan and Rachel McAdams are eight years apart, but play characters who are the same age in the movie.

4. Scarlett Johansson auditioned to play Karen! We just can’t see it.


5. President Obama’s a Mean Girls fan! Last summer, the White House tweeted out this picture of the First Dog, Bo, with this nod to arguably Mean Girls’ most enduring line.

7. The song playing at the school dance is Built This Way, by Samantha Ronson. By 2008, Sam and Lindsay were dating! Fate? No so much as it turns out.

8. Tina Fey picked Jonathon Bennett to play Aaron Samuels, because “he looked like Jimmy Fallon,” which we totally see now that she mentions it.


9. Lizzy Caplan’s character Janis Ian got her name from the folk singer of the same name, whose biggest hit At 17 is a heartbreaking ballad about being a teen outsider: “I learned the truth at seventeen, that love was meant for beauty queens, and high school girls with clear-skinned smiles.” While the heterosexual Janis of the film has to deal with rumours that she’s a lesbian, the real life Janis Ian is indeed gay.


10. Lizzy Caplan was in a six-year relationship with Matthew Perry from 2006. This is more shocking than when Trang Pak slept with Coach Carr!
