Costa Rica

The Made In Chelsea cast and crew have had to abandon filming a special in Costa Rica due to a plane crash.

The small aircraft was carrying four members of the crew – two senior producers and two technical directors – when it plunged into the Pacific Ocean yesterday around 6pm.

Thankfully, the coast guard rescued the crew and pilot and nobody was seriously harmed in the crash.

The rest of the cast and crew were being flown over on a separate plane, however due to the incident, they are being brought back to to the UK "as soon as possible."

A spokesperson for the show said: "Four of our production team on Made In Chelsea, produced by Monkey Kingdom, were involved in a plane crash earlier today in a resort in Costa Rica.

"We can confirm that all four people and the pilot are safe and unhurt. No cast were onboard.

"We are grateful to the emergency services in Costa Rica for their assistance in this serious incident. We have taken immediate steps to ensure those involved have every support locally and out priority is to return all cast and crew home."

What a scary thing to happen!


Congratulations are in order for one Glee star! 

Harry Shum Jr. and his long-time girlfriend, Shelby Rabara, tied the knot in a beautiful ceremony in Costa Rica this past weekend. 

Us Weekly reported that photos were posted to social media in which fellow Glee alums Amber Riley, Jenna Ushkowitz and Kevin McHale were spotted in the tropical paradise over the weekend.

The couple got engaged nearly two years ago while on vacation in Hawaii, confirming the good news in February last year.

“They have been together for years and are so great together,” a source told Us of the couple at the time.

The 33-year old actor is perhaps best known for his role as dancer Mike Chang on Glee. He currently plays Magnus Band a new series Shadowhunters

Shelby, also 33, is a dancer and actress, and most recently had small parts in 17 Again (alongside Zac Efron). She has also made appearance on shows such as Community and CSI.

She co-starred with Shum in several episodes of Glee. She played fellow high school student Shoshandra in the series.

Kevin McHale took to Instagram and shared a snap of the beautiful destination for the pair’s nuptials and we are decidedly envious. 

The newlyweds have been living together in L.A for the past several years with their beloved pooch Charlie. 

It has not been confirmed he acted as the official ring bearer but we feel that it could have been a possibility. 



This is what it looks like when eight million petals rains down over a town.

Costa Rica was showered with an explosion of colour when, as part of their Sony campaign, advertising agency McCann made it rain petals over the town of Irazu Volcano.

The method behind the flower madness was to use one petal to represent every pixel in Sony’s 4K Ultra HD TV.


It took more than two weeks for local residents and the agency to pick the petals but it was definitely worth it – the result is incredible.



If you have yet to tick bungee jumping off your bucket list, you’re in luck.

We have found the top three holiday destinations to do one… just don’t ask us to join you.

Verzasca Dam, Ticino, Switzerland
This 220m dam is famous not just because it is the highest dam in Europe, but because it appeared in the opening to the James Bond movie GoldenEye. This bungee is aptly named the 007 Jump or GoldenEye Bungee Jump. It will set you back around €180.

Extremo Park, Monteverde, Costa Rica
It’s called Bungee Extreme, so you know it’s not for the fainthearted. It’s made from a tram that travels along a cable to a height of 143m and is fast becoming one of the highest jumps in Central America. A single bungee will cost around €45.

Pucón, Chilé
Chile’s Pucon jump has got to be one of the craziest ones around. Thrill seekers will jump from a helicopter into a live volcano before being flown back to town still bouncing about on the bungee… the journey back is 35 miles. It’s a bit pricey and will set you back around €9,500.
