Demi Lovato has revealed that she will join the upcoming season of Will & Grace, posting a photo of herself reading a script on the NBC show's set.

The 27-year-old pop star revealed the news to her Instagram fans on Tuesday, captioning the image; "Will & Grace & Demi  @nbcwillandgrace #WillandGrace."

Many of us will remember Demi as a former Disney Channel star, acting as Mitchie Torres in Camp Rock and Camp Rock 2 alongside the Jonas Brothers.

The network revealed exclusively to Us Weekly that the Cool for the Summer singer will appear in three episodes during the upcoming and final season of the reboot.

The publication reports that she has accepted the role of Jenny, a "guarded woman who comes into the life of Will (Eric McCormack) in an unexpected way."

The reboot is set to air in 2020, with McCormack tweeting his excitement at the prospect of acting alongside the star;

"First shot with Ms Demi Lovato! #WillandGrace," the 56-year-old actor tweeted.

This will be Demi's first on-screen appearance since the 2016 show From Dusk til Dawn: The Series. Lovato also voiced a character in 2018's animated film Charming.

She is also apparently filming a new comedy for Netflix with Will Ferrell, Eurovision, and is gearing up to release a new album where she will tell her personal truth.

The singer said to her followers in June on her Instagram Story;

“You know what’s great about making an album? You get to say anything you want, be as open and honest as possible and finally tell your side of the story regardless of who might not like it.”

It'll be the Skyscraper singer's first music release since suffering a near-fatal overdose last year and attending rehabilitation facilities.

Demi Lovato just stepped back into the social media ring to clap-back a fan who accused her of unfairly firing her back-up dancer.

The fan took to Twitter yesterday to call out Lovato's team, claiming their behaviour is "rotten" regarding the handling of the singer's altercation with her backup dancer.

Lovato shut down the fan for claiming that 'Dani', who spoke out about the star's recent overdose, should not have been fired.

According to Revelist, Dani Vitales, a backup dancer at the time, went to the press following Demi's drug overdose and trip to an L.A rehabilitation centre.

Dani Vitales, who was Lovato's longtime friend, then decided to write a lengthy statement on social media about the controversy, denying rumours that she supplied the singer with drugs:

“I have NEVER touched nor even SEEN a drug in my entire life,” Vitale, also 28, wrote on Instagram.

“I DO NOT DO DRUGS, nor would I ever encourage, or supply them to anyone I love.”

Speaking about the painful emotions which she endured following the accusations, Vitale said, 

“The circulation of an UNTRUE story on the internet yanked my life, my reputation, my name and everything I have worked so hard to stand for, out from underneath me. A damaging narrative that demonized me, placed blame on me, and has since cost me so many wonderful moments in life.”

"I care about Demi just like all of you do. I have not said anything about this situation until now because her recovery has been of the most importance" 

"I was not with Demi when the incident happened, but I am with her now, and will continue to be because she means the world to me just as she does to all of you."

On Thursday, a fan then took to Twitter and Instagram to write:

“It was completely unfair to fire dani, she’s one of the few who really cares about demi’s health and has been helping her for 3 years, she’s surrounded by people who only care about her money and she does not see it.”

The fan accused Lovato’s “team” of being “rotten,” commenting: “She does not realise it, needs a total change.”

We suspect the fan never thought Ms Lovato would actuallly see the tweet, but Demi saw it alright, and didn't hold back in the comments section:

“You have no idea what you’re talking about, ” later writing, “True friends don’t do interviews about you after you OD.”

Most readers speculated that she was referring to back-up dancer Dani Vitale, the 28-year-old singer quickly responded: “I’m not talking about Dani Vitale.”

Lovato might be referring instead to Danielle Martin,  her former trainer, who spoke out last week about severing ties with the singer:

“I lost my job for speaking up for her, to be honest,” Martin told Radar Online.

“Pretty sad. I did nothing but empower her. Nothing bad to say. The people around her I’m sure were happy to run to her. They told her I was taking the situation and making it all about me. I’d never do that. Not ever. I was standing up for her. That’s all.”

It's pretty clear that Demi's fans are NOT here for Danielle:

Demi is currently back in LA and spending time with her mother, Dianna De La Garzia, as well as attending a sober living facility.

We hope this drama doesn't hinder her recovery, we need Demi back. Not just for her legendary clap-backs too.

Wizards of Waverly place was a staple part of our teen years. 

We must admit we felt extremely old when we heard one of the stars of the show was expecting their first child. 

Seriously, fetch us the wrinkle cream.

Disney Channel alum David Henrie revealed he is to become a dad for the first time.

He posted the sweetest gender reveal video with his wife Maria Cahill.

"After getting married my life started to take on a meaning and importance that's indescribable," the actor wrote.

The dad-to-be added: "I cannot wait to see what being a poppa brings. I cannot wait!"

David and Maria shared a video where they revealed the gender of their first child. The duo popped a big black balloon and pink confetti poured over them, revealing they will be welcoming a daughter.

The parents-to-be jumped up and down when they discovered they were expecting a baby girl.

"I'm already singing 'I Loved Her First.' That reminds me. Where's my shotgun? I don't have a shotgun. Someone get me a shotgun!" he joked.

“I can’t wait to sit her down on a couch and tell her a 9 season story of How I Met Your Mother,” the 29-year-old gushed.

Fans showered the former Disney star with love following his huge news: “Congrats family!There is definitely magic in your world.”

Another added: “It is so weird seeing your favourite childhood stars become parents. It makes me feel old.”

Huge congrats to David and Maria. What an exciting time for the couple.

Lizzie McGuire will forever be one of our favourite childhood shows. There are so many things we loved (and miss) about the popular Disney classic.

We adored everything from Lizzie, Miranda and Gordo’s friendship to her stunning family home that we often wished we grew up in.

The show was a staple during those awkward years where we experienced first crushes, first kisses, first breakouts and our first bra fitting.

Star of the show Hilary Duff recently revealed her favourite episode of the show and we have to agree with the actress on this one, it is without a doubt one of the best.

The Disney star revealed the episode where Lizzie and Miranda go shopping for bras for the first time holds a special place in her heart.

She explained to Today: “I definitely think that the bra episode is one that stands out in my brain as being like first of all, really wanting it, 'cause I thought a bra was cool, and then second of all, being like, ‘How am I gonna get that? I have to talk to my parents about that. That's gonna be the worst thing ever.’”

The Younger star explained that the episode resonated with her because she was going through a lot of similar experiences at the same time, just like most of the Lizzie McGuire viewers.

I'll  never forget the pure fear I felt when my mam dragged me to a bra fitting at Marks and Spencers. It’s such a cringe-worthy but empowering moment. You kind of feel like a grown up, but you can’t help but turn bright red when the sales assistant returns to your dressing room with an arm full of frilly pink bras.

Now, if anyone needs us we’ll be binge-watching Lizzie McGuire for the foreseeable future.

'Disney remains committed to continuing to create characters that are accessible and relatable to all children.'

The TV storyline has received a mix of criticism and praise. 

Critics claim that children should not be 'exposed' no non-heteronormative dialogue. 

'Why is there a gay kid on Disney Channel? Stop trying to normalize it! Children do not need to exposed to that,' said one Twitter user. 

However, others have praised the channel for being inclusive in representing the LGBTQ community. 

'Television reflects the real life world and today that includes LGBTQ youth who deserve to see their lives depicted on their favourite shows,' GLAAD’s President and CEO, Sarah Kate Ellis told The Huffington Post. 

'Disney has been a leader in LGBTQ inclusion and there are so many young people who will be excited to see Cyrus’ story unfold.'

If you're a former Disney child, then you'll know all about its original movies.

And to say the least, Camp Rock was one of the biggest films to hit our TV screens as kids.

It was the first time we really fell in love with Demi Lovato, Nick, Joe and Kevin Jonas.

Demi and the lads now have big and bright careers in the music business, but it looks like they could be heading back to the Disney Channel sometime soon.

Joe has constantly been teasing fans that Camp Rock is making a return, but he's teased the same thing many times over the years, therefore, nobody really believes him anymore.

But now, Demi has come forward and said that Camp Rock 3: The College Years is "totally" going to happen.

While on the red carpet at the Kids' Choice Awards last week, the singer took the credit for the comeback.

When asked about the rumours by Entertainment Tonight, Demi said: "My idea, my idea! We're totally going to do it. It'll be like American Pie meets Disney Channel… It's going to happen."

American Pie meets Disney Channel? Now that's something we're down with.

And of course Raven Symoné will be the star!

Yep, Raven is coming back to play the role she did so many years ago, but this time she's a divorced mother of two kids and one of them has inherited her seeing-into-the-future gene.

Disney Channel's vice president Adam Bonnet said of the news: "Her performance in That's So Raven is timeless. We now have our eyes on the future with her, and we're looking forward to telling more stories for a new generation with an adult Raven Baxter raising her young family."

Raven was also named as an executive producer of the new series.

We may now associate Brie Larson with joining the ranks of up-and-coming young actresses paving their way in the film industry with standout performances and big wins but Brie has been in the entertainment for a long time.

And this is well before her big break in Room. 

In fact, the 26-year-old was once a fresh-faced teen actress on the Disney Channel and also dabbled in the music business. 

Brie starred as the sister of one of the main protagonists in the movie Right on Track which she shared a picture from in a recent tweet. 

In 2005, at the age of sixteen she turned her attentions to music, a passion in which she still has an avid interested despite not releasing new music in many years. 

A highlight of her stint in music is definitely the music video for She Said in which she plays a hard-done-by teen moaning about life and wearing excessive eyeliner (as we all were at sixteen). 

The video involves Brie as a waitress in a fast food chain in an Avril Lavingne-esque pop song and it's all kinds of nostalgic fun. 

Brie has acted constantly since her teens most recently in 21 Jump Street and lending her musical talents to the film Scott Pilgrim vs. the World before landing her first lead role in a motion picture in Lenny Abrahamson's Room for which she scooped up the Oscar. 

We gotta give this girl props for all her hard work getting to where she is today, but Brie we need more music from you…

Old school Nickelodeon and Disney shows were the BEST. The stories were way better than they are these days and the former child stars were much more entertaining as well. 

And what better way to remember the good old days than taking a trip down memory lane on Snapchat?

We've spotted everyone from Disney's That's So Raven to that guy called Coconut Head on Nickelodeon's Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide on the photo-sharing app.

Enjoy the nostalgia, folks: 

1. Selena Gomez – selenagomez

What better way to start off the list than woman of the moment, Selena Gomez.

Many remember her as Alex from The Wizards of Waverly Place, but she has come on in leaps and bounds since then. 

 

2. David Henrie – davidhenrie1

Many remember David as Selena's older brother on Disney's Wizards.

He joined Snapchat in April, and like many of us, it took a bit of time for him to figure it out. 

 

3. Raven Symoné – ravensymone

The former That's So Raven star made many of us laugh back in the day, and her Snapchat lives up to her hilarious reputation. 

 

4. Jennette McCurdy – jennettemccurds

We remember her as Sam from iCarly, even though she still stars in many Nickelodeon shows today.

The iCarly trio recently reunited for Nathan Kress' (Freddie's) wedding not too long ago and it's good to see the gang is still going strong. 

 

5. Miley Cyrus – MileyCyrus

Ah, good old Miley. Most of us first met Miley when she played Hannah Montana on the Disney Channel show.

But A LOT has changed since then… and you all know what we're talking about. 

 

6. Emily Osment – OSMENTEMILY

Hannah Montana's BFF on the show is still the fun-loving girl we used to know. And her snaps are quite hilarious too. 

 

7. Tia Mowry-Hardrict – Tiadmowry

Hands up who remembers Sister Sister?! It was one of those shows that went along with everyone's beloved Saved By The Bell.

Some remember Tia from Disney's Twitches, but we'll always remember her from the Nickelodeon twin teen show. 

 

8. Paul Butcher – PaulButcher

We were all devastated when Jamie-Lynn Spears had a baby and Zoey 101 was cancelled (what happened in the end?!). 

Zoey's little brother on the show, Dustin (Paul Butcher) is a Snapchat regular and has slayed the site by posting funny Adele/crying mash-ups. HERO. 

 

9. Nick Jonas – jicknonas

Ah, we love Nick! He starred in many Disney shows and movies such as Camp Rock, but we love him even more for what he's up to these days. 

 

10. Rob Pinkston – pinkypinkston

Remember Coconut Head from Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide? Yep, we'll say no more. 

 

11. Ashley Tisdale – ashleymtisdale

The Suite Life of Zack and Cody was one of our favourite shows and then Ashley played the ultimate glam girl, Sharpay, in High School Musical (and we all totally wanted to be her).

She regularly posts snaps with BFF and former HSM co-star Vanessa Hudgens. 

 

12. Josh Peck – joshuapeck

If you laughed as hard as we did when watching Drake and Josh, then you'll love Josh Peck's Snapchat… he's also quite the hottie now.

It's really hard to think of Miley Cyrus as someone other than the rebel, tongue-wagging wildchild she is today.

But her audition tape for Hannah Montana has just resurfaced and it's making us remember her early Disney Channel days.

In the video, Miley is seen reading her lines, as well as doing an adorable choreographed handshake and duet with her father.

If this shows us anything, it's that Ms Cyrus has some raw acting talent in there:
