Love Island star Maura Higgins isn't one to withhold vital information, including about shenanigans from the Spanish villa that she may have caused.

The reality star has fast become a fan favourite due to her frank and honest nature, though she has now admitted to skirting around the rules to get some extra wine. Mad respect.

"I should never tell, but I'm gonna…" she revealed during an Instagram Q&A after an appearance on The Late Late Show last Friday night.

"Some nights you get one glass of wine, some nights you get two, you either get a choice of beer or wine, I always choose wine," Maura explained.

"One night I went into the larder where the drinks get prepared and there's like a water dispenser there. I went in before everyone else and I downed everyone's wine and I filled it up with water.

"And I got in really big trouble. The whole island got punished the following night because I got really drunk. I shouldn't have probably said that. I'll get in big trouble now!"

We can relate to the struggle of craving some vino, especially if we were on a stressful reality show fighting off other gals to find love.

The Longford native has also divulged on other behind-the-scenes secrets from the reality show, admitting that some scenes were reshot.

"Yeah, we did re-shoot," Maura said. "Just say, for instance, if a text came through and you weren't loud enough or if you stumbled on your words, you'd have to re-take obviously."

With her wholly grown-up appearance and her older boyfriend (not to mention that she moved into her own €2.5m property aged 17) it's long been claimed that Kylie Jenner has had too much too soon .

Indeed, in a recent online post, the now 18-year-old star admits that it's "crazy"  that she's "grown up in front of the cameras".

Promoting the latest series of Keeping Up With The Kardashians which began filming back in 2007 when Kylie was just nine (incredibly the reality TV show is now about to embark on its 11th airing), she explained that she's "been filming for nearly half of my life".

However, rather than dwell on the potential negative impact of spending her teenager years in the spotlight, Ms Jenner said her extraordinary experiences to-date have helped her "learn fast about the lessons in life". 

Last month in an emotional post, Kylie revealed that she's struggled at times with frame from such a young age.

"People are so quick to say horrible things about me everyday over and over and sometimes I can't take it," she wrote.

"Even I at times get affected by it, I breakdown, I hide, I cry. It's resulted in a lot of anxiety for me that I've never had to deal with before ever.

"My every move has been documented for the whole world and its been a nightmare trying to find myself through all of this.

"And I've absolutely lost apart of myself."



Gone are the days when you had to wait for the wedding album to relive the memories of someone's big day.

With the dawn of smartphones, we can post pictures of the bride and groom live throughout the day, from the first moments in the church to the groom's mam boogying to I've Had The Time Of My Life at 2am.

But one professional wedding photographer has hit back at the use of phones, saying it ruins the magic of a couple's special day together.

After one particularly annoying incident at a recent wedding he photographed in New South Wales, Australia, Thomas Stewart took to Facebook to have his say.

"Look at this photo. This groom had to lean out past the aisle just to see his bride approaching," he wrote alongside one of his snaps. 

"Why? Because guests with their phones were in the aisle and in his way.

"In the past I should have been more specific with my clients in explaining to them why guests should be told no photos. Well, from now on, I'm going to make a pretty big deal about it.

"These same guests will get in YOUR way. You will miss moments of your own wedding day because there'll be an iPad in the way.

"Guests, you've been invited to this wedding to share and celebrate the love that two people feel for each other. They didn't invite you along to take photographs that they probably won't really look at anyway."

Overnight Thomas's photo and online rant went viral, and it currently has almost 90,000 like and 60,000 shares.

"I'm stoked with the attention my rant received; hey, even the negative comments are pretty funny to read," he said of the unexpected reaction.

Luckily for the bride and groom, Thomas did manage to get a few good Phew!
