It might be their first Christmas together as a couple, but Adam Collard and Zara McDermott won't be spending it together.

The Love Island stars, who are one of three couples still remaining from the show, will be with their families on Christmas Day.

Zara confirmed that the pair had spoken about it and decided that it was best if they went to their hometowns for the day.

A post shared by ZARA MCDERMOTT (@zara_mcdermott) on

The 21-year-old told OK! online that, ''Because Adam’s family’s in Newcastle and my family are in Essex, I said to him I’m not fussed about him being with me for Christmas.''

She continued, ''Because I’m with him all the other time of the year, I think it’s important to be with our families. So I said to him, ‘if you want to spend time with your family and I’ll be with mine then we’ll just see each other on Boxing Day.’''

She added, ''I’m not fussed about him being with me on Christmas Day, it doesn't bother me.''

She went on to say that her birthday is the week before and she was happy if she spent that day with her 23-year-old boyfriend.

Zara also spoke about the upcoming Love Island Christmas reunion and how her friend Ellie Brown was feeling about coming face to face with her ex Charlie Brake.

Zara said, ''It will be the first time her and Charlie have spoken since they split. The thing with Ellie is she’s got absolutely nothing to be worried about, nothing to be concerned about.''

She continued, ''If he was to say anything to try and be nasty to her it would just completely backfire for him because everyone loves her, everyone knows she’s an amazing girl and knows that he’s just not a very nice person clearly. I think it’s gonna get a bit ugly if I’m honest.”

We LEGIT cannot wait. 


They might have been at the centre of controversy not too long ago, but it seems that Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott are fully embracing the Christmas spirit

After Kylie slammed fake photos claiming Travis has been unfaithful to her, she uploaded a video of his and hers Christmas presents.


A post shared by Kylie Jenner Snapchats (@kyliesnapx) on

In a clip posted on her Instagram Story on Friday,  the 21-year-old showed off the “first two gifts under the tree” this year.

She zoomed in on two gold-wrapped gifts, one with a “Daddy” tag and the other with a “Wifey” one.

The video, which has since been deleted, has gotten fans talking about whether or not the pair are married.


A post shared by Kylie (@kyliejenner) on

However, the couple frequently refer to each other as wifey” and “hubby,” and seem to be in no rush to tie the knot, rather they are focusing on raising heir 10-month-old daughter, Stormi.

Kylie has been posting regularly about her little on on her Instagram.

She uploaded a gorgeous snap of the tot on a plane, captioning it, ''Stormi takes the snow'' with a bow emoji.

She also posted several pictures of her carrying the little one, both of them wearing matching beanie hats. 

Being Stormi's first Christmas and Kylie's first as a mum, we're sure they are all so excited to spend it together. 


We all know that friend who has a SERIOUS case of Netflix addiction, and if you don't know which member of your friend group it is… then it's you.

From the Orange is the New Black days, to Black Mirror to the more recent Riverdale phenomenon, certain shows on Netflix really know how to reel us in.

There are days when we don't even get out of bed, all we do is watch shows over and over again and only pause for occasional snacking and bathroom breaks.

It's called dedication, people.

She looks like an Irish cailin if there ever was one.

And now Angela Scanlon has shown us all how much her homeland means to her.

The 34-year-old had posted on her social media about the annual heading-home-for-Christmas and it's made us all a little proud of our country.

The TV presenter might hail originally from County Meath but she has called the UK her home for a number of years now. 

However, that all changes when it comes to Christmas. 


A post shared by ANGELA SCANLON (@angelascanlon) on

Angela took to Instagram to post a stunning image of her sitting somewhere on the Wild Atlantic Way, looking out at the sea.

She captioned it, ''We’re not quite there yet but that trip home for Christmas is one of my favourite of the year. Excess baggage, mammoth to-do lists, frantic meet-ups, lingering hugs (sounds creepy) and pints in Grogan’s.''

She continued, ''And then…QUIET. After a few days eating my weight stuffing and penny sweets I get cabin fever and need OUT! Cliff walks and forest rambles and 50 shades of green. I feel like an American tourist let loose.''

Her followers couldn't agree with her more and the comments section was buzzing with how great the Emerald Isle is at this time of the year.


A post shared by ANGELA SCANLON (@angelascanlon) on

One said, ''Sure we can't help it! The more we're we're away from the aul sod the more we long to return!'' followed by a shamrock and green love heart emojis. 

While another wrote, ''Ireland at Christmas is the best and my favourite place!''

Angela has welcomed her first baby this year with her husband Roy Horgan –  a little girl named Ruby, who will celebrate her first birthday in February.

We're sure Christmas in Ireland will be even more special than usual this year. 


It's a modern-day Christmas classic that everyone loves. 

It's Richard Curtis being the most Richard Curtis he can be and it has a stellar cast that includes everyone from Emma Thompson to Mr Bean to Bill Nighy as an old rock star trying to cling onto his music career.

What more could you want in a festive flick?

However, there has been murmurings that there is a few questionable plot lines going on in Love Actually.

And now actor Gabriel Bisset-Smith has taken to social media to point one of them out.

He wrote, ''It’s that time of year where we all have to remember that Love Actually has THREE separate storylines about old men sleeping with women who work for them. #romance.''

The 2003 movie is made up of an ensemble cast and their intertwining stories in the lead up to Christmas. 

Gabriel addresses three sub-plots in the movie that all are centred on older men having relationships with younger women that they work with – and all the men are their bosses.

There is Natalie (Martine McCutcheon), a secretary to the Prime Minster (Hugh Grant), Portuguese Aurelia, a housekeeper to heartbroken Jamie (Colin Firth) and Harry (Alan Rickman) who is having an emotional affair with his employee Mia (Heike Makatch).

Gabriel's post started a conversation about these sub-plots. 

One wrote, ''I fail to see your point. A significant percentage of romantic relationships begin ‘in the workplace’, so this is merely an accurate representation' to which someone replied, ''It's the power imbalance that is the issue.''

While another commented, ''Unless we are saying that no two people who work together or have ever worked together can have a relationship under any circumstances.''

Hmmmm, we're not entirely convinced – what do you think? 


It's the time for celebration as graduation ceremonies are still on-going around the country, Christmas is on its way and we look forward to a New Year.

Moët has always been a key-part of our parties and they've now launched something that would make a very special event – that bit extra.

A post shared by Moët & Chandon Official (@moetchandon) on

Furthermore, personalisation is FREE for the Moët & Chandon Imperial range, from Mini (200ml) to Methuselah (6L) bottle.

Moët & Chandon has also unveils its holiday-season bottle designed in homage to the perennial refinement of the French “art of living” – and it's STUNNING.

The elegantly festive and highly symbolic limited-edition bottle is perfectly titled “Tribute to French Art-de-Vivre”.

Take an enchanting journey and taste French excellence and swirl that glass like a true connoisseur this Christmas – g'wan gal. 


A post shared by Moët & Chandon Official (@moetchandon) on

If that doesn't tickle your champagne fancy, you can get an equally memorable moment this holiday season by gifting a limited edition Mini Moët & Chandon Cracker.

Available in Moët Brut and Rosé Impérial, each special gift set contains a Mini Moët 200ml with a crown, a riddle & confetti. 

For all your Moët needs check out Brown Thomas who have all these exclusive treats.

This is definitely going on the Christmas list.
