First her daughter, now her mum… Jennifer Maguire is keeping it in the family with promotion for her new RTÉ series, Bridget and Eamon.

The actress and comedian shared a brilliant family throwback snap from the Eighties on social media this morning, and now we can see exactly where she got the inspiration for her Bridget costume.

While Mrs. Maguire was no doubt a far better mother than the chain-smoking Bridget, the two definitely share a similar style:

"Just found this old pic. My Ma aka Bridget!! All she needs is the fag and glasses," Jennifer wrote alongside the old Communion Day snap.

And just last month Jen got her baby daughter in on the fun, dressing up little Florence as a mini-Bridget, complete with wig, dressing gown and glasses.

Now all we need is her husband Lau Zamparelli with a ginger wig and bad suit á la Eamon.

Um… maybe not.



The 1980’s was an amazing decade for movies; and we got to watch them all as we grew up!

2. Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986)


3. The Goonies (1985)


4.  The Neverending Story (1984)

Heathers writer, Daniel Waters, has revealed three alternative endings he wrote for the film.

The 1980’s cult classic, starring Winona Ryder, Christian Slater and Shannen Doherty, is #5 on Entertainment Weekly‘s “50 Best High School Movies”.

Waters revealed the different endings at the opening night of the musical version of the film.

So, here they are. How Heathers could have ended:

1. The school blows up.

2. Veronica blows up.

3. Martha stabs Veronica after she asked if they should rent a film. She calls her Heather to which Veronica screams “My name’s not Heather, bitch” as she lays dying.

Hmm, do you think he chose the right ending?
