"Who would have thought two misfits like us could pull it off!!! I’m very grateful for you, baby," he added.

"We have created an amazing life and family together. I love you. #17YearsStrong."

The pair have been together for an impressive 17 years and have two children together.

They share seven-year-old, Willow Sage Hart and two-year-old, Jameson Moon Hart.

Long may their love last as they're just fabulous. 


Hands up who has missed them?

The Inbetweeners cast is offish back and we are BUZZING.

It's been a decade since the boys first burst onto our screens and we have loved them ever since.

Now we have the first look at their upcoming 10-year anniversary special – and they look so grown up. 

James Buckley, who played Jay, posted the snap on his Instagram of the gang – himself, Joe Thomas (Simon), Simon Bird (Will), Blake Harrison (Neil). 

He captioned it, ''Right…@thesun has published the first publicity picture of us 4 boys together in god knows how long. Can I just say I was shooting white gold. I’ve not decided to just have a moustache.‬ #inbetweeners.''

The cast had uploaded another picture of them filming the reunion – along with the famous yellow car that took them to Thorpe Park.

The Inbetweeners ran for three series from 2008 to 2010, and also gave us two gas movies – so we can't wait to see what the reunion has in store.

The Inbetweeners Fwends Reunited will hit our telly's on New Year’s Day Channel 4 at 9pm – ideal hangover TV. 


It has been a tough week in Kristin Cavallari's household.

Yesterday marked the three year anniversary of her brother's passing.

A missing person's report was issued in November 2015 for Michael Cavallari.

Heartbreakingly, the 30-year-old was found three days later.


A post shared by Kristin Cavallari (@kristincavallari) on

Sadly, Michael had passed away due to hypothermia.

Three years later, the Hills star took to social media to honour her brother.

The 31-year-old penned an emotional message about Michael, so get those tissues ready.


A post shared by Kristin Cavallari (@kristincavallari) on

The actress wrote underneath a black and white picture: "Home from a busy morning and thinking of my brother."

"Today is the 3 year anniversary of his passing and I think this year is one of the hardest- as it’s real now. He’s not coming back and the shock is finally gone," she said.

"Today and every single day, Mikey, we miss you," she finished.


A post shared by Kristin Cavallari (@kristincavallari) on

At the time of his tragic death, Kristin thanked her followers for all their "love, support and prayers during this very difficult time”.

We are sending the whole Cavallari family good vibes. 

We could only imagine how tough his anniversary must be.


Mrs Doutbfire is one of those films you loved as a kid and are still just as attached to as an adult because it evokes such warm fuzzy feelings of nostalgia.

It's been 25 years since the movie hits our screens and with every passing year, it becomes even more of a classic.

Set in San Fran, voice actor Daniel Hilliard is going through a separation from his wife Miranda, played by Sally Field.

As Miranda gets custody of his three kids – Lydia, Chris and Natalie –  he must go undercover as their nanny to spend time with them.

Cue the teary eyes. 

It's a feel-good flick, if a bit of a tearjerker, and the cast have gotten together to celebrate the quarter-of-a-century anniversary of its release.

And it makes us feel old as f*ck.

The beloved main character, played brilliantly by Robin Williams, has sadly passed away and is missed dearly by the rest of the cast.

Lisa Jakub, who played eldest kid Lydia, took to social media to post a snap of herself alongside the actors who played her two siblings, Matt and Mara Wilson and their mother's love interest Stu, played by Pierce Brosnan. 

She captioned the picture, ''so this happened. #mrsdoubtfire #reunion #25yearslater.''

Fans were delighted at this reunion and commented in their droves to say so.

One wrote, ''this is one of my favourite films Robin Williams will always be a legend.''

Another said, ''such a wonderful moment. Hope your reunion was just as magical!!! #mrsdoubtfire.''

Pierce has spoken before of how his first meeting with Robin went on the set of the film.

He said, ''I went into the makeup trailer and Robin was sitting there in a pair of boots and his hairy legs, and a Hawaiian shirt, and his hairy arms, and there he sat, but with Mrs. Doubtfire's head on. I never really worked with Robin Williams, to tell you the truth. I worked with Mrs. Doubtfire.''

He continued, ''he was a magnificent human being, and a beautiful person."

We've no doubt he was watching over the cast, proud of the iconic movie they made together. 


It's exciting times for Victoria Beckham as not only did she ner showcase her latest collection in Mayfair during London Fashion Week, but  she was celebrating a decade of her fashion brand. 

It was the first time that VB had held her fashion show in London, rather than in New York and the whole gang of Beckham's came along to show their support. 

This included her husband David and their four children Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and Harper, as well as her parents Jackie and Tony Adams, and her sister Louise. 


Proud of mummy x 10 years and what an amazing way to celebrate in London We are so proud of you @victoriabeckham

Proud husband David took to Instagram to post a picture of his brood cheering on their mum.

He captioned it, ''Proud of mummy x 10 years and what an amazing way to celebrate in London We are so proud of you @victoriabeckhham.''

His 50.8 million followers all penned their congratulations to Victoria.

One gushed, ''Ohh I love you guys! What an amazing Mama!!'' while another wrote, ''always a mum – love how she wanted to skip the crowd and just kissed the fam!''


Love you baby girl x Our first #LFW x VB #VBSS19 #VBSince08

A post shared by Victoria Beckham (@victoriabeckham) on

Victoria discussed her collection after the show, saying, "I judge myself, I always want to better myself, at this stage there isn’t a lot more than I can do. I have created a collection that I love, that I would wear.''

She continued, ''I am showing it in this amazing location. It reminds me of one of the first locations I had a show in New York at the Mansion House. It has that kind of feel. I am excited.''

With her loving family behind her every step of the way cheering her on, we've no doubt that the next ten years of Victoria's brand will just keep getting better. 


It's been seven years since one of our favourite movies was released in cinemas – The Help.

Set in America's deep south at the height of civil rights in 1962, the movie explores the role that the black maids had in bringing up white children and one woman, Skeeter (Emma Stone) who writes a book exposing the injustices in her Mississippi hometown. 

It seems like it was a movie that stayed with a lot of it's stars as many of them took to social media to celebrate the anniversary of the fantastic flick. 

Octavia Spencer, who nabbed an Oscar for her portrayal of hilarious maid Minny Jackson, wrote a lengthy post on instagram, thanking the movie for changing her life.

“What I personally learned from the entire process in preparation for this role was: it doesn't matter if the glass is half empty or half full. What matters is if you own the glass,'' she wrote.

She continued, ''Minny, Aibileen, and all the other maids didn't own the glass. They didn't have the luxury of deciding to be positive (half full) or negative (half empty) as society decided for them. #agencyisTheKey #TheHelp.”

Based on the bestselling novel (if you haven't read it yet, definitely do) by Kathryn Stockett, the movie grossed $216.6 million at the box office and went on to become the first film in almost a decade to top box-office charts for three consecutive weekends and later for 25 days in a row, which was last seen in 1999. 

Pretty impressive, right?

Also dedicating a post to the movie was Viola Davis, who played Minny’s fellow maid Aibileen Clark and was also nominated for the best actress Oscar for her role.

She wrote, “it changed our lives. What an experience. My takeaway? It was the deepest, most intimate, joyful time I spent in the company of women. We are powerful together. The audience received the overflow of the love that we had for each other.”

The fans were out in force, showing their support and commenting, 'easily one of the best films I've ever seen. Full of emotion and a true mirror of society.''

Another said, ''this awesome movie that also changed my life. I don't know how many times I've watched it. I love Minny and Aibileen, they inspired me to be better everyday.''

We know what we're watching tonight with a glass of vino – happy anniversary, The Help!


Ariana Grande has paid tribute to the victims of the Manchester bomb attack on the first anniversary of the tragedy. 

22 people, including seven children, were killed when a suicide bomber detonated a device as people began leaving Ariana's concert at the Manchester Arena in May 2017.

Taking to Twitter, the 24-year-old wrote:  “Thinking of you all today and every day. I love you with all of me and am sending you all of the light and warmth I have to offer on this challenging day.”

Two weeks after the atrocity, Ariana returned to the city for the One Love Manchester benefit concert which saw the likes of Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, Coldplay, and Manchester's own Liam Gallagher, take to the stage in tribute to the victims.

She and her mother Joan also visited some of the victims in hospitals around Manchester.

A remembrance service will be held at Manchester Cathedral today for those injured in the attack, and the families of those who lost their lives. 

The Duke of Cambridge and Prime Minister Theresa May are due to attend, as well as first responders to the scene, civic leaders and other national figures.

The invitation-only service, held between 2pm and 3pm, will incorporate a national silence at 2.30pm, which will also be marked at UK government buildings.



As word landed this week that the Irish nation would finally be granted a referendum on the hugely contentious 8th amendment, thoughts travelled to the women who have already fallen victim to a system which refused to grant them bodily autonomy.

Indeed, today marks the 34th anniversary of 15-year-old Ann Lovett, who died from a post-partum haemorrhage after delivering her baby son alone in a grotto in Granard, Co Longford.

Ann's death in 1984 has subsequently acted as a symbol of a system which refused to place trust in its women, and today the Irish public are seeking to remember her bravery.

"Like many names and faces we know & will never know, she was betrayed by a culture that shamed and punished young unmarried pregnant women," wrote one Twitter user this morning.

Echoing this sentiment, many more used their platforms to pay tribute to the school girl who gave birth on a dark, cold night beneath a statue of the Virgin Mary.


This day ten years ago, Hollywood went into mourning as the news of Heath Ledger's untimely passing made front-page headlines.

The Australian actor was just 28-years-old when he died of a cardiac arrest brought on by an accidental overdose of prescription drugs.

The father-of-one, whose career had gone from strength to strength in the years leading up to his tragic demise, died alone in his Manhattan apartment in the early hours of January 22.

Loved by fans and lauded by critics, the impact the award-winning actor had in just ten short years on the film industry cannot be underestimated, with his final role in The Dark Knight securing him an Oscar, which was awarded posthumously.

Today, film fans and industry insiders take to Twitter to honour the actor who brought us numerous memorable characters including Patrick Verona. Ned Kelly, Ennis Del Mar and The Joker.


At this stage, most of us know that the dynamic within Girls Aloud was a little awkward at times.

While they all started out as earnest young wannabes back in 2002, their rise to fame saw a shift in allegiances among group members.

Rumours abound that Nadine and Cheryl often clashed while Sarah was regularly seen as the outsider of the group, and it looks like a recent post on Cheryl's Instagram page may finally confirm that.

Celebrating the 15-year anniversary of the band's formation, the mum-of-one chose to share a photo of herself alongside Nicola and Kimberley.

While both Nicola and Kimberley were given a lengthy tribute, Nadine and Sarah got little more than a mere tag.

"Crazy how time flies. 15 years ago today some of the best, craziest years of my life were just beginning. I had no idea what a life journey I was starting out on," she began.

"We had some of the most amazing times of our lives and made some incredible pop moments to put the cherry on top."


Sitting here drinking coffee with these two and watching babies 15 years later !!! Crazy how time flies…15 years ago today some of the best, craziest years of my life were just beginning. I had no idea what a life journey I was starting out on. We had some of the most amazing times of our lives and made some incredible pop moments to put the cherry on top In the end I left with these two amazing, inspiring gorgeous souls and the best friends anyone could ever ask for. You blessed me and I will never be able to thank you enough for the support, love and loyalty you brought to our group. I am so proud of what we achieved together. Love you all @lilcola @kimberleywalshofficial @nadinecoyle @sarahnicoleharding Thank you#Girlsaloud15

A post shared by Cheryl (@cherylofficial) on

So far, so good, but th rest of the post has left Girls Aloud fans in no doubt that there is little love lost between Cheryl, Nadine and Sarah.

Referring to Nicola and Kimberley, Cheryl continued: "In the end I left with these two amazing, inspiring gorgeous souls and the best friends anyone could ever ask for."

"You blessed me and I will never be able to thank you enough for the support, love and loyalty you brought to our group. I am so proud of what we achieved together."

Fans were quick to notice the disparity, with one writing; "She has only specified 2 but tagged them all – nadine and sarah haven't made the cut."

Others jumped to Cheryl's defence, with one social media user writing:"They shouldn't be attacked for being closer to each other than the others."

"Like I said, they mentioned the other two to show that they haven't forgotten they were apart of it to. I'm sorry but I've seen both nadine and sarah post things and crop the other three out, so cut these three some slack."

Cheryl's post has amassed almost 175,000 likes since yesterday.



It's been ten years since the world came face to face with an anguished teen desperately defending his idol, Britney Spears.

In footage which has been viewed millions of times over the course of the last decade, Chris Crocker can be seen tearfully demanding that the press 'leave Britney alone'.

Due to both his theatrical delivery and the vaguely unsettling nature of the clip, chatshow hosts and comedians fell upon it with glee, instantly identifying material which they could parody time and time again.

And as the footage reaches its tenth birthday, the star of the clip has taken the time to reflect on both the video and the various reasons he set about creating it.

In an explanation which may stun many, Chris explained that his devotion to Britney was born of his own domestic situation.

"10 years ago on this day, I defended my favourite pop star against the media," he began in a post which has been liked more than 10,000 times.

"Whie I'm known for doing comedy: This was the one video that I was serious in. That year, my mom was battling addiction and became homeless after serving for our country in Iraq."

"The struggles in my home life and family life made me defensive over any woman going through a hard time," Chris explained.

Reflecting on internet culture back in 2007, Chris continued: "[It] was a very different, less LGBT friendly place at the time. Nothing I said was listened to."

The aftermath of the video's release has stayed with Chris who recalled: "I was mocked for my feminity. I was called every gay slur in the book. Talk show hosts questioned if I was a man or a woman, after playing the clip."

Realising that the sentiment of his video was attracting mirth not understanding, Chris explained that he eventually played up to the 'cartoonish' perception the press and public had of him.

"But the truth is and always was about standing up for someone and not standing idly by when you see someone being hurt by others."

Gratefult to see a changing tide, Chris added: "In the 10 years since this video – a lot of LGBT YouTubers are celebrated for who they are. I often wonder if I had started videos later, if I would've been treated differenty."

Finishing the poignant post with a nod to his initial motivations, Chris concluded: "But what I will say is this: Even if I got a public beating for standing up for what's right; I'm happy I did. And I'll always love Britney Spears."

And with that, we're giving a standing ovation.
