A new report is claiming that Love Island runners up Molly-Mae Hague and Tommy Fury have been 'banned' from attending an Ibiza trip with their fellow cast-mates.

Anton Danyluk, Lucie Donlan, Tom Walker, Joe Garratt, Jordan Hames, and Casa Amor's Lavena Back, among others, went on a post-villa weekend away and didn't invite the pair.

Rumours are ongoing about a rift between Molly Mae Hague and Tommy Fury and the rest of the Love Island 2019 cast, and new reports claim the weekend away was in spite of the fellow Islanders.

The likes of Chris Taylor, Belle Hassan and Joanna Chimonides were living their best lives in Ibiza without winners Greg and Amber as well as Tommy and Molly-Mae.

A source told The Sun that the runners up were "banned" from the trip as claims of their 'fake'relationship continue to follow them.

According to the insider;

"Some of the Love Island stars got a free trip to Ibiza from a clothing brand and so were able to take people with them They decided they wanted to treat their Love Island mates but they all agreed they didn’t want to invite anyone they didn’t like – such as the 'fake people'."


A post shared by Tom Walker (@tom9walker) on

The source added;

"A few of them were very vocal about how they think Tommy and Molly are fake – they said all they did was sleep all day in the villa and nothing else. Everyone agreed they Tommy, Molly and Amy were banned from the trip and weren’t to be invited."

Some fans are speculating about the lack of invitation possibly being linked to the underlying feud between Anton Danyluk and Molly-Mae.

Anton admitted to unfollowing Molly-Mae on Instagram, commenting during the Love Island: Reunion show: "We weren't the closest, I wouldn't say we weren't friends. I didn't choose to follow her. I wouldn't have chosen to follow her."

Molly-Mae opened up to OK! Magazine about the online abuse she has received, and was upset to see Anton commenting negatively about her.

"Everyone has seen that I’ve been getting quite a lot of backlash and hate online, so for him to then add fuel to the fire was quite shocking," she commented. "I know Tommy would never do that to Belle if she was in this situation, because he’s not that type of person.

"I think it showed more about him than anyone else. It’s a shame that this has happened. It was unnecessary. I want to be able to support everyone who was on the show. We all did this together."

The Fyre Festival has gone down as one of the greatest fails of the modern era; the celebrity endorsed festival was branded as the elite, luxurious partying experience. Think Coachella but on a tropical island.

The intention of the festival was to promote the Fyre music booking app, scheduled to go ahead on the Bahamian island of Great Exuma in April and May of 2017.

Social media influencers and socialites like Kendall Jenner, Hailey Baldwin, Emily Ratajkowski and Bella Hadid were all promoters of the festival, many of whom failed to mention that they were being paid to promote it.

As everyone figured out pretty damn quick, the event was a complete SHAMBLES.

Problems relating to food, security, and accommodation arose, and they also had no artists to play as they couldn't even travel to the island.

Instead of the luxury they branded and were promised, influencers paid thousands of dollars to be housed in FEMA tents, and eat prepackaged sandwiches. All hell broke loose, as you can imagine. Rich folks like to be treated as such…

The organisers are now the subject of at least eight lawsuits, such as defrauding ticket buyers and millions of dollars of damages. CEO of Fyre Media Inc, Billy McFarland, has been charged with wire fraud and in 2018 was sentenced to six years in prison.

Hulu and Netflix have each released documentaries on the failure, Fyre Fraud and Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened. The festival and it's employers had a hugely negative impact on people who live on the island itself.

A GoFundMe was set up for one amazing woman living on the island who helped to cater for the festival, but was never given any form of payment.

The GoFundMe has now SURPASSED it's $123,000 goal, miraculously. Maryann Rolle, who owns the venue, gave $50,000 of her own money into the event to attempt to cover costs and pay the additional staff who were flown in to meet demands.

In the description, she wrote; "As I make this plea it’s hard to believe and embarrassing to admit that I was not paid…I was left in a big hole! My life was changed forever, and my credit was ruined by Fyre Fest."

Luckily, the account raised $128,000 in just one week, so Maryann can get her life back on track. Oh, the follies of rich people, typically tramping on those less fortunate than them. Fulfilling the stereotype never looked so trashy.

Now, some absolute GENIUS has created a mock Fyre Festival to take the absolute PISS out of influencers who paid thousands of cash for trash, and marketed it without mentioning their affiliation to their followers.

An artist has created an INSTALLATION which allows members of the public to pretend they're at the real life Fyre Festival, and it's hilarious.

Infamous creative The Most Famous Artist (Real name Matty Mo) and his company SelfieCircus have created The Fyre Experience, and we are living for this classy humour.

They've got a Bahamas backdrop, cardboard cut-outs of pretentious influencers, pathetic sandwiches to create a realistic portrayal of the shambolic festival.

Remember Andy King and the NSFW experience he was told to perform in order to get Evian water through customs? We wonder have they somehow inserted him into their joke..

Bravo, this is pure gold. Visitors to Mo's installation are promised an ''ultra luxurious" experience and VIP packages, only to meet disappointment. 

The recreation of the 'beach front' hot tub full of Evian bottles and a sandy beach background honestly has us cackling, these lads went ALL OUT.

There's an Orange Square selfie spot and fake piggies for all those who want in on the joke. Our personal favourite addition is Billy McFarland in a prison outfit in the background. Gas.

'Ex-influencers' looking for work wielding cardboard signs are also present, naturally. The influencers who were paid to endorse an absolute sham have deservedly been given a slagging.

They're already annoying as hell, but when you market something as elitist as a private island festival for thousands of dollars which almost ruins the lives of those who actually LIVE on the island, be prepared to face some serious consequences.

Yes Bella Hadid, we're looking at you over our cat-eye sunglasses. 


A post shared by Unreality (@unreality.is) on

The fake private jet also makes a guest reappearance. This was one of Mo's previous installations, and allows people to take those all important selfies and create a glamorous, false illusion for Instagram. 

The things we do for the 'gram, honestly. It's slightly depressing. Mo spoke to Insider about the mock festival, saying;

“This is a satire and experience meant to drive offline to online engagement. We call this participatory art. I created the project to ride a cultural wave created by Netflix and Hulu. I hope to show that participatory art is the future of retail.”

Located in Los Angeles, the pop-up 'experience laboratory' is free to attend and celebrities have schedules appearances. We can't wait to see the pics from this, we stan a good slagging.

Harry Styles has an abundant of fans all around the world, each more dedicated than the next. Some send him gifts, some throw their underwear in his face at concerts, and some…get him tattooed on their face?

We're pretty sure that this girl is officially 'Harry's #1 Fan' by default after pulling this stunt. Kelsy Karter has made no secret of her love for the 24-year-old former One Direction singer.

The lad has been blazing a trail since the release of his massively popular debut album, and now Kelsy has decided it's time to show her (permanent) appreciation for Harry. We can only hope this is a hoax.

Kelsy got inked by Los-Angeles based tattoo artist Romeo Lacoste, who's quite the big deal in the celebrity body art scene. She shared the bizarre result on her social media accounts, tweeting the caption;

"Mama, look what I made me do." My mother would excommunicate me from the family if I pulled anything like this, let alone called her out in the caption…

Needless to say, fans had some pretty dramatic reactions. Mainly because the tattoo literally looks NOTHING like Harry Styles, no offence Mr Lacoste, but this isn't your best work in terms of facial twinning.

Hilariously, Frankie Cocozza realised how like the inking his own face looked, as opposed to the solo singer. He tweeted a reply to Kelsy, writing: "I'd love to send you a signed photo thanking you for the support. Get in touch mate x" GAS.

Kelsy's face appears slightly swollen and red, with Romeo posting a photo of her on his Instagram story saying; "I can’t believe Kelsy Karter got Harry Styles tattooed on her face." We can't either.

She recently tweeted: "It’s 2019 and Harry Styles is still the best looking human." Safe to say she'd be over the moon if he noticed her stunt. but the frontman has yet to comment.


A post shared by @harrystyles on

Some fans are arguing that the tattoo is fake, but most of the comments are just the general public questioning her sanity. Which is semi-fair, to be honest. 

On 18 January she tweeted: "Finally know what I’m getting Harry for his birthday…" 

Well, this is one way to get his attention, we hope? Stay tuned to see if the singer ever comments on the matter, or if Kelsy reveals the inauthenticity of the inking. Pray it's fake, just pray.


The Repeal Project has become nationally recognised thanks to its signature black slogan jumpers.

Indeed, the items are now one of Ireland's most sought-after style items, pretty much selling out wherever they are stocked.

However, unfortunately a SHEmazing! investigation has now revealed that some people are cashing in on the political campaign via fake Repeal merchandise outlets. 


A photo posted by Repeal Project (@repealproject) on

Claiming to be affiliated with the Repeal Project, the jumpers first went on sale in July as part of a campaign to bring visibility to the issue of abortion rights – still one of Ireland's most controversial conflicts. 

Of course, the actual Repeal Project donates all proceeds of merchandise to the Abortion Rights Campaign.

One of the seemingly counterfeit Repeal merch sites we reached out to flogs its wares on American website Teespring.

We went undercover – querying on Facebook if the clothing on sale would eventually benefit abortion efforts in Ireland. In response, we were told that profits would eventually be donated to charity.

They added by way of explanation: "We haven't actually made any money yet but I'm sure we could send you proof of a donation as soon as we do!" before immediately blocking us on all social media. 

To date, it is stated clearly on the same online platform that 32 items brandishing the Repeal slogan have been sold to date.

One concerned Facebook user posted to the site's corresponding Facebook page, which has almost 400 active followers, to ask: "Are you giving your profits to the Abortion Rights Campaign? Are you with the Repeal Project?" only to have her comment deleted by the page.

"We didn't like how they (the Repeal Project) were marketing their sweatshirts through exclusivity and pop-up shops," the page creator told another Facebook user.

When the practise was highlighted with Anna Cosgrave, founder of the Repeal Project, she told SHEmazing! "A number of 'fake' accounts have cropped up, some have been shut down."

She added: "It would be great if the people running it came forward."

A spokesperson for the HunReal Issues also told us: "My first thought when I saw there was a website selling imitation REPEAL jumpers for profit and not to support campaigning to Repeal The 8th was of course disgust, but also what a great job Anna had done on a project to get visibility for the cause as well as fundraising for the Abortion Rights Campaign."

"The fact that there's a bootleg market for the in demand jumpers shows just how many people want to show their support for the women of Ireland and their quest for bodily autonomy. That doesn't make the profiteering any less in bits though."

As of today, the fake page is still live.

SHEmazing! is still awaiting confirmation that it has donated profits to charity.


Usually, former X Factor contestants are all praise for the latest series, but it looks like Little Mix aren't big fans.

The girlband have hit out at this year's rapper Honey G, branding her "fake" and a "joke."

While speaking to The Sun, Jade shared her opinion: "I think it's a joke. I don't believe she's real. She's blatantly an actress. Let's just say, I've heard she's an actress."

Then, Leigh-Anne gave her two cents: "I'm all for entertainment, but I'm also all for real talent as well."

Honey G continues on the X Factor and you can catch her tonight at 8pm, where the theme this week is Motown.


With shows like The Only Way is Essex and Made in Chelsea constantly blurring the lines between fact and fiction, it's no real surprise that the public often find themselves questioning whether reality shows – in their original definition – even exist anymore.

For a long time, Geordie Shore was touted as one of the few remaining reality shows which didn't manipulate scenes, create story lines or provide scripts.

"We couldn't be like TOWIE. We wouldn't be able to remember our scripts," Gaz assured sceptics whenever the subject arose.

But it looks like his co-star, Chantelle Connelly, is having trouble keeping a lid on the whole thing if remarks she made on social media ar anything to go by.

While responding to criticism that she had been unfaithful to boyfriend Tommy Sayers, Chantelle hit back insisting that a kiss she shred with Gaz had been part of the show's story line.

After being accused of cheating, Chantelle raged: "Think you need to get your facts right! My bf knew I had to have a story line with Gary." (sic)

"Was totally honest with him and he was ok with it!" the Geordie star added.

Raging with Chantelle for blowing the show's cover, one MTV fan remarked: "Storyline #all #false @chantellegshore just spoilt @geordieshoremtv for us all there or just me."

Well, that's it ladies, the dream's over.


Geordie Shore girls, past and present, have constantly been changing their looks, with Charlotte and Holly being the main culprits – but now all eyes are on Vicky Pattison.

Followers of the reality star have made very harsh criticisms over her latest bunch of Instagram snaps, with many saying "back away from the fake."

Vicky is currently filming scenes for her new show It's Not Me, It's You, and took to social media to keep her fans updated.

However, her fans were more interested in her new look than her new TV show.

The backlash first began when she shared a photo with former Xtra Factor presenter, Matt Richardson.

Fans began commenting on the photo, saying: "You're becoming unrecognisable… Back away from the fake," and another mentioned, "Looks nothing like her… How much photoshop."

It then continued the next night when she posted another behind-the-scenes snap.

"This pout is getting old now," "too brown," and "ew," were just some of the comments posted on her picture.

Knowing Vicky though, she won't let the haters bother her.


One of our fave Kardashian sisters, Khloe, has been on talk show after talk show for the past couple of weeks to promote her new programme, Kocktails With Khloe, but it seems that it has done little to get her viewers attention.

The reality star's new TV show debuted last week, but amid reports, it absolutely flopped, and it seems that fakery is to blame.

"Producers said that the first episode felt contrived,” an insider told RadarOnline. “They are not loving the way that it turned out.”

And, Khloe's (small) audience felt the same way, taking to Twitter to rant about the show.

One user said, "This is what trends? 2016 is already starting to s**k. America is going downhill fast."

While another mentioned, "I need to stop watching #KocktailsWithKhloe before she’s not my fav Kardashian anymore. What is this sh*t?”

However, Khloe did make up lies just to get attention, and said that her sister, Kendall Jenner, was pregnant.

“The whole Kendall thing was staged by Khloe herself because she knew that it would grab headlines,” said the source. “And it did.”

The source then added,“the drinks that they all are drinking, for the most part, are not even alcoholic!”

It seems like Khloe is going to have to fight to keep her show on the air! 



A few weeks ago, Ed Sheeran shared a picture of his chest with us with a huge lion tattoo on display. 

Fans were not impressed with the ink and it quickly earned him a spot on many lists of the worst celebrity tattoos. 

But was it all just a joke? Today, Ed posted a photo to Instagram saying "was only joking about the lion" accompanied by a picture of his bare lion-less chest.

A lot of his followers have expressed their relief at the fact that the tattoo has vanished, but others are questioning whether he just covered it up with make up as his chest looks a bit on the shiny side. 

The Thinking Out Loud singer posted a photo of his chest with the caption "halfway and ouch" just two weeks ago but it seems he was just trying to fool his fans. 

Ed is already covered in other tattoos including a Heinz Ketchup logo, a lego head, a teddy bear and a paw print.

So the entire internet freaked out over this poster declaring an episode called “The One After The 10 Year Break.”

If you were one of those people (and ALL of us were) then we have some bitterly disappointing news.

It’s 100% completely and utterly fake. Say it isn’t so!

The image was created by a fan who explained it was never supposed to go viral: “I’m very sorry for any confusion caused. I have to say that the poster wasn’t created with the intention to upset, anger or fool anyone.”

We forgive him, but could the powers that be please make this happen?! We don’t even need a movie, an episode will do.

Just like the good ol’ days…



Fake reviewers – we’re onto you. There’s nothing worse than trying to see if the hotel you want to book actually IS the ideal getaway location, or if someone’s been paid to talk it up online. Use these tips to decipher between real reviews and fake ones.

Check if the reviewer has reviewed anything else
Most people who are inclined to leave reviews don’t just do it for one particular product of service – and if they only leave one glowing review, it’s a bit suspicious. Beware.

What kind of language are they using?
If you’ve checked to see if they’ve left any other reviews, and the answer is yes, take a look at the way they’re written. Are they oddly similar? If so, this fake reviewer is a big fan of the old copy and paste routine.

How do they refer to the product?
If they keep writing out the product name in full, even when it’s long and awkward, chances are it’s a fake review. They’re just trying to up their SEO points.

What are they talking about?
If it’s a hotel review and they keep banging on about all the activities and family fun you’ll have there, it’s more likely to be fake. A 2013 study by Cornell University found that fake hotel reviewers focus more on this kind of thing, because they think it’s what we want to hear. Normal people tend to focus more on the hotel itself.
