It's official: Ariana Grande has overtaken Selena Gomez as the world's most followed woman on Instagram. The figures are SO tight though; Ari now has 146,337,497 and Selena is slightly behind with  146,289,115.

Unfortunately for Thank U Next fans, Cristiano Ronaldo is still the most followed person, with 155 million followers compared to the Sweetener singer's 146 million.

However, considering everything Ms Grande has achieved this year, we believe she can gain the nine million needed in no time.

Billboard are claiming that Ariana gained a huge 13 million followers on the social media site over the last four months, coinciding with the release of her record breaking albums Sweetener and Thank U, Next.

Weirdly, it also comes at the same time as her break-up from former fiancé Pete Davidson in October. The pair made the headlines after the split, coming only five months after their engagements and six months after they began dating.

It was never going to end well, was it? Ari also had a turbulent time with the overdose and subsequent death of her ex-boyfriend Mac Miller.

More recently, she won the Best Pop Album Grammy award, and became the first solo artist to hold the top three Billboard Hot 100 singles (7 Rings, Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I'm Bored and Thank U, Next), and hold the number one album spot at the same time.

Her online wars with the likes of Grammy producers who insulted her (how dare they??) and Piers Morgan has also drawn attention to her accounts.

Meanwhile, singer and actress Selena Gomez has lost followers after taking a four-month break from social media in September after entering a treatment facility for her mental health.

She required medical help with her anxiety and depression, saying in a video at the time;

"As much as I am grateful for the voice that social media gives each of us, I am equally grateful to be able to step back and live my life present to the moment I have been given."

"Kindness and encouragement only for a bit. Just remember: negative comments can hurt anybody’s feelings," she said. 

Come on lads, lets dethrone Cristiano Ronaldo. Ari's Instagram game is far stronger…Just sayin'

We really are rooting for this pair, they're just too cute.

Dani Dyer and Jack Fincham are rubbishing claims that they've split up after his drug use confession last week with an adorable picture.

The Love Island winners reunited following her Comic Relief trip to Tanzania, after slamming reports that she'd moved out of their shared flat.

They appear to have put the rumours of trouble in relationship paradise behind them, as the pair share a cosy selfie cuddled up in bed.

Jack Fincham posted the snap to his Instagram story, captioning it, "Spilt tea down my front" with a gas face palm emoji. They're just too relatable, ain't they?

The pair denied reports that the 23-year-old daughter of Eastenders star Danny Dyer had moved her belongings out of their home after Fincham admitted to using cocaine.

The Sun published the comments he spoke, relating to submitting to peer pressure on nights out and Jack's deep regret at his actions.

She took to Twitter to write: "Sick of having to comment about my life! And people judging me and judging MY family. Nobody knows any facts or truth about me. Sick of people judging my relationship that they know nothing about. I don’t deserve any of this."

Jack retweeted Dani's statement and also wrote a piece for himself;

He wrote, "Please don’t read everything you read, I love Dani and her family and me and Dani are fine we love each other," before correcting himself, writing 'believe' instead of 'read'. LOL.

Dani has spent time in Tanzania before her upcoming charity climb up Mount Kilimanjaro later this month, saying her journey has "put a lot of things into perspective.”

The reality star will be joined on the climb by stars such as Strictly judge Shirley Ballas, presenter Alexander Armstrong and former politician Ed Balls.

Sarah Hyland has left social media following the bullying she experienced online in the aftermath of her cousin's tragic death.

Her 14-year-old relative lost her life in a heart-breaking car accident over the weekend.

The actress uploaded a Go Fund Me page to her Twitter, stating that a man named Jeffrey Eggerling was the driver who hit her uncle's car, and he tried to run from the scene.

"Jeffrey Eggerling is a murderer. May he rot in hell."

She also asked if her fans could donate to the page to help pay for funeral expenses of her 14-year-old cousin, which backfired.

The backlash came when Twitter users angrily stated that she could afford to pay for the funeral from her own salary, and that there was no need to ask others to contribute.

In a series of tweets, the Modern Family star explained the sense of grief and pain which her cousin's death brought, which was exacerbated by online trolls;

She continued; saying "your horrible negative ignorant words have broken me. Happy? Staying offline for a while."

She presumably has contractual obligations to promote her TV show, so the exception to her social media hiatus is for this purpose only.

Some Twitter users declared that because her net worth is roughly $9 million, she should pay for the funeral herself rather than asking her fans for money which they may not have;

Others claimed that we don't actually know what her assets are, and presumably she has already contributed to the funeral costs, which is no one's business.

Many fans rallied behind her during this tough time, and we agree that when someone is mourning a great loss, attacking their net worth is just a low blow.

We hope she can get through this difficult period in her life, and offer condolences for her cousin's death.

A lot of us have trouble getting motivated. Whether it's studying for an exam, or just having to clean your room, in this day and age it's super easy to get distracted.

Since first hitting screens in 2011, the cast of Geordie Shore have provided viewers with endless rows, unstable romances and some seriously mortal sessions.

But with Vicky Pattison, Charlotte Crosby and most recently Holly Hagan opting to leave the show which propelled them to fame, it looks like those left in the house are also beginning to question their futures with MTV.

Last month, Scotty T revealed plans to stick with the controversial reality series until he turns 30 in two years’ time, but now the Newcastle native has admitted that he is taking a break from the show.

Speaking to Digital Spy, the popular Geordie explained: “The thing is, I might be taking a break.”

“Whenever I go on Geordie Shore, I go too wild – I just need to calm down.  And obviously the filming dates clash with [my] pantomime [in Leeds], so that could be a big thing.”

Despite acknowledging the role partying played in his decision, Scotty was quick to deny reports which suggest he has been warned by show producers to curb his behaviour.

“There's a lot of things in the media that aren't true these days,” he said.  “But it's people talking about me.  At the end of the day, if it was true, would I still be here?  Would I still be doing the show? Exactly.”

While his role in the next series of Geordie Shore may be limited, Scotty told the site that he’s not willing to ditch the show completely just yet, but confessed that when he does return to the house, he will be “a lot calmer” than he has been in the recent past.

 

Sounds like a good idea to us.

Demi Lovato has decided to quit the music industry… for now anyway.

Just a day after she let rip at Taylor Swift's girl gang, the former Disney star has revealed she's taking a break from the business and wants to focus on charity work instead.

She tweeted last night: "So excited for 2017. Taking a break from music and the spotlight.

"I am not meant for this business and the media."

When a fan asked her to explain her decision, she said: "Dunno. It doesn't feel worth it anymore. I'd rather do charity work."

After her article in Glamour targeting Tay-Tay's Bad Blood video came out, Demi took to Twitter to say: "I don't understand why people care so much about what I say in interviews? 

"Do y'all watch the news? Don't y'all got s**t to worry about?"

Will you miss Demi being on the music scene?

Hozier came back with a bang this month after he released a track for the upcoming film, The Legend of Tarzan.

Entitled, Better Love, everyone (including his fans) thought that this was his comeback song – the track that would welcome him back into the music industry after taking some time off.

But as it turns out, the singer is flying right back under the radar.

"I'm going to take some time off so this is the last thing I'm going to be putting my name to for a little while," he told RTÉ TEN.

"I'm going to disappear for a while and work on the next album.

"In a similar way how I worked the first time round, go to a very quiet space and just see how the demos take shape," he added.

Even though we'll miss him in the charts, we're looking forward to a brand new music from the Irishman.

School lunches: oh, how we lamented them at the time. But now? Now we realise just how valuable they once were. 

Granted going outside to clean the duster; cries of "teigh a chodladh", and gloopy bowls of nature table tadpoles were all highlights – but little makes us pine for the classrooms of yesteryear more than thoughts of lunch-box loveliness.

Yes, having been hit by a generous gale of nostalgia, SHEmazing! brings you the top six things that really make us hungry for a traditional primary school lón… just like mammy used to make them.

1. Swapsies  

Your mam just didn’t get it: you don’t like brown bread; you don’t do cheese, and smokey bacon crisps are not now nor have they ever been for the win.

Fear not! Even if your own lunch-box was looking less than appetising, there was always another child only delira to embrace your hand-me-downs in return for their own unwanted ware.

Everyone’s a winner! Except your unsuspecting “oh but you’ve ALWAYS loved under-ripe pears!” mam – who continues to this day to pile you with your least favourite lunch foods.

2. Penguin Bars

The day was always off to a good start when you found one of these gems snuggled in beside your sambo. Those with self-control saved theirs until big lón; others scoffed theirs during 11am sós.

Understandably, the idea of sharing was never entertained; if nothing else, it would have been far too challenging to try to pry apart the delicious, chocolatey biscuit exterior from the soft, sweet centre.

Almost as good – the gloriously woeful jokes on the back. Qs: How does a penguin make pancakes? A: With its flippers. Golden.

3. Billy Roll 

Ah, beautiful Billy Roll. If you strutted onto the playground with a Billy Roll sandwich, you could expect to be on the receiving end of many a jealous stare. You could hardly blame them. Mr Robert Roll was a treat of the highest order.

And even in the days before selfies, those feeling daring might delicately remove Billy’s eyes, nose and mouth, next placing the cold, moist piece of questionably-sourced processed pig on their faces for the ‘larf’. The messers.

4. Milk from a carton

Come rain or shine, you were always greeted at the school’s entrance by piled-high cartons of ice cold milk – all of which came complete with a straw.

You wouldn’t, of course, drink a glass of milk for love nor money at home, but put it in a cardboard box with a plastic drinking tube attached (gently warmed to room temperature too) and you suddenly you couldn’t get enough of the stuff.

Feeling fancy? Strawberry and banana varieties were also on offer on special occasions. And afterwards… oh behold – the pure joy of blowing into the cartons and jumping on them to make a loud bang.

5. Triangle sandwiches 

The traditional no nonsense sambo was cut down the middle, wrapped in tin-foil and contained ham, turkey or cheese (no uppity notions here, no siree). But then – lo and behold! – you also had the triangular strain. And for some reason, triangle sandwiches always tasted nicer.

The one downside, however, was that they couldn’t really accommodate a sprinkling of Tayto, which sadly meant no spur-of-the-moment crisp sandwiches.  

6. Popcorn

Popcorn at school was a BIG treat. A Ziplock bag of the homemade kind did very nicely, though the real Holy Grail was a bag of salt-filled, Manhattan goodness.

Taking the runners-up spot was a bag of Monster Munch.

Unfortunately, your classmates were also far more likely to dive their greasy hands into your bag to help themselves. You had to concede lest you be labelled a ‘scab,’ so a good ploy was to furiously stuff as much as possibly into your mouth before your peers had the opportunity to pounce.

Yup… we all know the feeling: heading back to work after a hollier is like the Sunday night fear times a million.

It's brutal, in fact.

There you are, just admiring your sun-kissed glow when you realise that your only clothes are bikinis and shorts, not to mention that there is NO food for breakfast – never mind for your packed lunch the next day. 

And now – quelle surprise! – Aer Lingus has confirmed what we suspected all along: 40 percent of adults suffer from post-holiday blues. 

The company released the figures today – and 44 percent of the same 1,000 surveyed individuals said that 'the fear' of returning to work is the worst symptom of their post-holiday come-down. 

It furthermore takes pretty much everyone (nine out of ten people) a full two weeks to 'get over' their holiday and return to regular emotional health. 

Still, two-thirds of those asked reported that they alleviated their gloom by… simply booking another holiday. 

Aer Lingus released the figures to coincide with its Need Another Holiday Sale which starts at midnight tonight. 

This sale includes flights to Britain from €20, mainland Europe from €30 and North America from €209. 

And given that more than seven out of ten folk in the same report agreed that travelling abroad improves their mental well-being and general happiness… We're off to plan our next holiday!

The sale runs from September 14 on aerlingus.com.

The end of summer is now in sight – but that doesn't mean that beach holidays are a distant memory just yet.

In fact, you might well be amid the waves of savvy folk that are able to jet off in early September when prices are lower and the resorts less jam-packed – and if so, you'll be treated to a serious haul of gorgeous swimwear both online and in stores.

And for the rest of us, there's still no harm in taking a moment to dream of white sand, palm trees and warms oceans. *Sigh* In fact, looking at Pippa Middleton's KILLER bikini bod, we're already thinking about summer '16 anyway.

Rumour has swirled ever since Zayn Malik unexpectedly departed the band in the spring.

This evening, and despite notching up a huge hit in Drag Me Down – their first release as a foursome – it seems that One Direction will indeed go their separate ways in March of next year.

The decision was seemingly made during crunch talks in London last weekend.

However, The Sun, which is claiming an exclusive on the story, also says fans should not lose all hope: the guys intend on making more music together some time again in the future – albeit after they've pursued solo material and projects over the course of at least a year.

A source close to the boyband told the newspaper: "The guys have been together for five years, which is an incredible run for any boyband.

"They fully deserve to have at least a year to work on their own projects. There is absolutely no bad blood between them and they are all 100 percent behind the decision."

The source added: "They fully intend to get back together at some time in the future."

Liam, Niall, Harry and Louis have several high-profile gigs lined up for the rest of the year – performances which they will honour. The band will furthermore regroup after Christmas to polish off their various contractual commitments.

The Sun also says that the 1D time-out has nothing to do with Mr Malik's departure. 

"This was the plan with or without Zayn," the insider revealed. "In fact, the band have been making amazing music and been incredibly happy without Zayn.

"Of course they would have preferred that he had stayed in the band, but they would have taken this extended hiatus even if he hadn’t left."

The band was formed on the UK version of The X Factor in 2010. Their debut studio album Up All Night was released in November 2011 and topped the charts in 16 countries.

Their forthcoming fifth album – from which Drag Me Down is taken – will be unveiled later this year, and it had been expected that One Direction would embark on an arena tour in 2016 to promote the release.

As part of their current On The Road Again tour, they play three live dates in Dublin in mid-October, before moving to Belfast on October 20.
