Ed Sheeran has reportedly been cut from the upcoming Ron Howard Beatles flick The Beatles: Eight Days A Week.
Despite having successfully appeared in a number of small screen productions, The Mirror has reported that the singer has been left disappointed as his scenes in the movie have been edited out in a bid to make room for more Beatles-focused moments.
A source told The Sun: “Ed had recorded a segment for the film, but it failed to make the final cut along with a load of other talking heads by Ron who wanted to make more time for The Beatles themselves.”
They say when you’re ready for a baby you just know. But, we’re not too sure. Surely there's a list to tick off so we know we're not making a major decision based on our hormone fluctuations?
Granted, babies are ridiculously cute and their heads happen to smell like magic and happiness, but this is precisely what hoodwinks us into thinking we’re ready, when we’re actually not.
So if you’re wondering if you’re ready or not to become a baby mama, try out these nine sure-fire signs for size:
1. You’re ready to sacrifice your life for another human
Oh sure, it sounds dramatic, but if you’re looking after a kid, you can’t even go to the bog alone. Yep, as soon as you have a baby you’re suddenly the loyal slave of a pooing, dribbling little overlord. So in the words made immortal by “Maniac 2000”, are you ready?
2. You don’t care about giving up spontaneous nights out
The rigmarole of getting a babysitter – not to mention attempting leaving your child without having an emotional meltdown – seriously scuppers any impromptu nights on the town. Instead, a night hitting the pub is akin to a military sting operation, involving blueprints, complicated strategies and a field plan.
3. You REALLY want a baby, but you’re worried you won’t be able for it
You know what, asking yourself this question shows maturity, so A+ for you. Most mams worry they’ll be shite parents anyway; it’s normal. And think about this, if the hilarious walking disaster that is Bridget Jones can handle becoming a mammy, so can you. (Yes, Bridget is back and she’s up the duff!) This is the woman that made blue soup for Lord’s sake.
4. One Born Every Minute fills you with wonderment and joy (instead of terror)
If a soothing night in front of the telly for you is listening to the harrowing screams of women as they push human beings out of their hoo-has, chances are you’re good to go.
5. You’re cool with spending money on ‘baby stuff’ and not ‘you stuff’
If you’re not absolutely horrified by the prospect of eschewing a new pair of heels for a Bugaboo, then go forth dear friend and conceive, with our many blessings.
6. Your gaff is suitable for a baby
We hate to wreck the buzz, but there are practicalities to caring for a baby. So if you’re sharing a party house with six students and a mysterious man in his 50s called Maurizio, chances are you’re not ready to start planning for a kid.
7. You’re a responsible, functioning member of society
If you’ve answered yes to this, what’s your secret? We joke, we joke. First things first, if the word ‘responsible’ makes you feel queasy, you’re probably not that responsible. Secondly, if you beg your Mam to fill out your forms because you’re “not able for it” we’re going to suggest holding off on the old fertilisation.
8. You’ve had your baby names picked out since you were 12
If you’ve been dreaming about meeting Arabella, Jaxon and Honeyflower for as long as you can remember, you’re probably ready by now.
9. You just want one goddammit
Because sometimes you DO just know. Go for it girl!
And to get you in the mood for 123,679 nappies and pacing the floor with puke on your shoulder, check out Bridget juggling Colin with McDreamy in the gas new flick Bridget Jones's Baby. Welcome back Bridge!
Finally! After years of waiting, Bridget Jones is finally set to return to our screens – and she's not the only cast member from the two previous films who'll be coming back.
The third film, Bridget Jones's Baby, was originally thought to be based on the third of Helen Fielding's Bridget Jones books, in which Mr. Darcy sadly doesn't feature. But instead it appears the movie will take inspiration from Ms. Fielding's newspaper columns.
And a first look at the trailer confirms that yes, Colin Firth will indeed be back as the ever-attractive Mr. Darcy.
Starring alongside Renee and Colin is former Grey's Anatomy lead Patrick Dempsey, and while we've no idea of the character he'll be playing yet, we could definitely see him in a Hugh Grant-esque cheeky love rat role.
In the teeny-tiny trailer, an ultra-slim Bridget is seen dancing the night away, checking out music festivals and generally reliving her misspent youth.
If that 15-second snippet isn;t enough for you, panic not, because the full trailer is set to be released today.
Bridget Jones fans, rejoice! Filming for the long-awaited third instalment of the film franchise is finally underway, and we're loving the on-set pics so far.
It's been over a decade since the original Bridget Jones sequel, The Edge of Reason, hit our screens, and since then our favourite anti-heroine has gone on to become a mum.
If you're wondering what to expect from the third film, Bridget Jones' Baby, these snaps from Mail Online should give you a few hints. Firstly, Mr. Darcy is still present (phew):
Secondly, there definitely seems to be a christening – but is this actually Bridget's baby? And is Mr. Darcy the father?
Thirdly, it seems Bridget has slimmed down quite a bit ten years on – either that or Renee Zellweger has refused to gain weight this time around:
The film was originally thought to be based on the third of Helen Fielding's Bridget Jones books, in which Mr. Darcy sadly doesn't feature. But instead it appears the movie will take inspiration from Ms. Fielding's newspaper columns.
Starring alongside Renee and Colin Firth is former Grey's Anatomy lead Patrick Dempsey, who has been waxing lyrical about his filming experience on Instagram.
The Thinking Out Loud singer could be starring alongside Renee Zellweger, Patrick Dempsey and Colin Firth after it was reported he landed a speaking role in the latest Bridget Jones movie.
Ed already plays a small part in the new film, after scenes were filmed at his Croke Park concert earlier this year, but the songwriter also wants a speaking role in the highly-anticipated Bridget Jones' Baby, according to The Sun.
A source told the newspaper: "Ed was really keen to be part of the movie after granting access to film at his gig."
"He's got experience playing himself in Home And Away and is not daunted by the prospect of starring alongside Renee."
It is reported that he is up against one other star but the chances are on his side to land the bigger role.
If Mr Sheeran does nab the part, we think this movie could be the best installment yet!
