YouTuber Zoe Sugg has decided to film her smear test for her five million subscribers and 9.7 million Instagram followers to educate them on cervical cancer screenings.

The 29-year-old warms at the start of the 43-minute-long video that it features "raw conversation around cervical screenings and cervical cancer" and "a teeny bit of blood (not up close!)"

Zoella rose to fame on the video-sharing platform years ago and has since decided to make her intimate health examination public to encourage more women to book in smear tests.

Zoe explains her reasons in her car prior to the appointment for bringing cameras with her, saying that she had asked professionals;

"Is there anything I can do to help encourage more women to book in their smear tests or make people feel a little bit more at ease when they get their letter through the post?".

She decided to dash the uncertainty by filming the whole process and passing on her fans' questions to a nurse; "After ten years of vlogging, this is a moment! I've never done this before!"


A post shared by zoella updates (@wittyzoe) on

Zoe first sits down with a nurse to discuss any concerns and questions from her subscribers, and the nurse urges anyone with worries to contact their GP and get more information.

She also explains how important it is to get the test done as young as possible, as it can detect cells which could later become cancerous.

Zoe then sits in the medical chair after changing into a gown, while the nurse talks viewers through the equipment she will be using. Zoe adds a timer to the screen to show how short the process is.

The timer revealed that the test took only 48 seconds, and the vlogger didn't appear to be in any discomfort. There had been some blood due to the oestrogen in her contraceptive pill, the nurse mentions.

Zoella chats more to the nurse following the procedure and discovered that she had never found anyone to have cervical cancer in all her time of doing smear tests.

She did found evidence in the past of cells which needed removing as soon as possible before they became dangerous. The nurse also urges viewers to check their breasts for lumps.

Zoe was praised by fans for using her platform for a worthy cause, seeing as the procedure is incredibly important for women's health.

Smear tests check for any abnormalities in the cervix which could cause cervical cancer if left untreated, and are offered to women aged 25 and above by the state.

New data from the charity Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust found that those aged 25 to 35 are put off by the idea of a stranger examining them, and the latest figures show that cervical screening rates among all ages are at their lowest in 20 years.

Scenes for the BBC Three adaptation of Irish novelist Sally Rooney's hit novel Normal People have begun filming at Trinity College Dublin.

Despite the lines of tourists queueing to visit the iconic Book of Kells (when is there not a line?), several cast and crew members were seen roaming around the famous college campus yesterday, according to the Irish Independent.

The award-winning. book was adapted for the screen by Rooney herself, with veteran director Lenny Abrahamson behind the camera.

The Oscar-nominated director behind films like Room, Frank and What Richard Did completed a Masters in theoretical physics at Trinity back in 1987, so he's familiar with the setting,

He's set to direct six episodes of the 12-part series, before Hettie McDonald takes over for the remaining six.

Filming has mainly taken place in the Robert Emmett Theatre in the Arts Block, with scenes between the protagonists, Marianne and Connell, taking place in lecture theatres.

21-year-old Cold Feet star Daisy Edgar-Jones has scored the lead role of Marianne, while 23-year-old Paul Mescal will take on the role of Connell.

The Lír Academy graduate previously garnered rave reviews for his part as Jay Gatsby in The Gate Theatre's production of The Great Gatsby, so he should be well able to handle Connell.

The series follows the characters, who move from the West of Ireland to Dublin in order to attend college, but the pair strike up an unlikely relationship.

At secondary school, Connell is the popular guy while Marianne is an isolated outsider among her peers. Despite this, they're drawn together.

Roles are completely reversed when they start college years later, with Marianne fitting in straight away with the debating crew but Connell finds himself on the outskirts.

Abrahamson has spoken out about how excited to work with the pair, saying:

"I feel I have found two young actors who vividly capture Marianne and Connell and bring alive the profound and beautiful relationship at the centre of the story."

The cast are heading to Italy in August or September after filming in Trinity is completed, before returning to Dublin to finish the shoot.

Filming also took place in County Sligo earlier in the year.

Further scenes will be shot in Trinity today and on Monday in the front square, library and on the cricket pitches. See if you can spot the cast if you're wandering around town.

Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan are devastated at the death of their beloved dog Lulu.

The former couple announced the heartbreaking development on their respective social media accounts yesterday, revealing that their lovable pet died from cancer.

Dewan shared an older image of Lulu with their five-year-old daughter, Everly, who was clearly very attached to the four-legged family member.

Jenna posted a series of pictures to her Instagram account, captioned;

"To our sweet and fierce Lulu…thank you for being the best dog in the entire world and for fighting cancer for as long as you did. Thank you for your tireless love, protection and humour."

"Thank you for the adventures. Heartbroken doesn’t even come close to how it feels. But you will live on forever in our hearts and our memories…fly sweet angel," she concluded.

The Magic Mike actor also posted a memory to his social media account, captioning the black-and-white image;

"I’ll see you again baby girl. But you’ll always be with me. Always. Thank you Norman Jean Roy for this memory."

The picture shows the actor with Lulu running along the beach, what was a poignant and nostalgic moment for the star.

Those in the entertainment industry have been quick to offer their condolences to the actors, who met initially while filming Step Up, and announced their separation in April.

Paris Hilton commented on Tatum's post; "Sorry for your loss."

Hillary Swank wrote; "Ugghhhh losing a four legged family member is the hardest thing I have ever been through. Bless you both."

RIP Lulu, grieving the loss of a family pet really is heart-breaking.

After Kim's Paris robbery, Keeping Up With The Kardashians came to a screaming halt as the reality star recovered from the ordeal.

And now, it looks like the family has decided to stop filming altogether, and won't resume until after the New Year.


A video posted by Kardashians on E! (@kuwtk) on

Sources close to the production team said that the producers have enough footage to carry on with the upcoming season, however they hoped to film the Christmas festivities of the family, but now it's looking extremely unlikely.

Kanye's hospitalisation put the production in temporary shut-down, but according to insiders, TMZ claim that Kim is "rethinking everything."

We'll just have to wait to see what happens now.


No wonder Lauren Goodger has slimmed down, she's meeting back up with some of her frenemies from The Only Way Is Essex!

The reality star posted a snap on Instagram of her toned down physique yesterday after there were reports of her heading back onto the TV show.

Lauren showcased her curves in a grey, body-conscious knitted dress, with the figure-hugging material clinging to her figure.

Meanwhile on Friday, the Essex girl seemed to confirm the rumours that she's making a comeback to TOWIE after sharing a selfie with the caption '#filming'.


Thank you for lovely make up today @katiebishopmakeup #filming

She wrote: 'Thank you for lovely make up today @katiebishopmakeup #filming'.

The selfie comes after reports that she's going to appear on the reality show for a Christmas special after a three-year absence.

Lauren was one of the founding members of the reality TV series when it started back in 2010 and she has been spotted filming with current TOWIE stars this week.

The Mirror reports that Lauren will make an appearance alongside Gemma Collins and Mario Falcone, who both quit the show this year.

"Lauren went through a lot of drama on the show so it was quite a big deal for her to come back. Mario and Gemma are still friends with many of the cast so it was easy for them to slot back in," a source says.

"She's worked hard to slim down and overhaul her image since quitting the show, meaning she'll be even ballsier than before. Essex won't know what's hit it."

Certainly so, and we can't wait to find out what happens!


They're the gorgeous couple who have been inseparable since first meeting three years ago in Dubai.

Certainly, Mark and Michelle's glitzy summer wedding proved the high-point of what has very much been a picture-perfect, fairytale romance.

Still, as they both forge ahead with their respective careers, it seems that the love-birds are about to embark on their first big challenge of married life: a long period of separation.

Ms Keegan, 28, has now revealed that filming for BBC's five-part Our Girl drama will take her to Africa for a full three months in early 2016.

And she's not even sure if her 28-year-old reality TV star husband will be able to visit her.


Date night.

In conversation with the Sun On Sunday, the actress admitted: "I'm out there for a long time. Obviously I'll miss him and I'll miss home.

"But it's my first job working away properly and I'm just excited for the challenge.

"If Mark can come out then he will pay me a visit. It'll be tough but worth it."


Since the finale of season five, Game of Thrones fans have been going crazy speculating whether or not Jon Snow will be returning to the show.

But a recent sighting of Kit Harrington in Belfast has led people to presume that this means Jon Snow will in fact be making a comeback.

The popular character of Jon Snow was killed off at the end of the last series, leaving the world in total shock. GOT fans immediately pointed out that Melisandre, the priestess of the Lord of Light with the ability to resurrect the dead, was present during the awful scene.

It has also been noted that the 28-year-old actor has maintained his long hair which he grew specifically for the show.

And now, he has been spotted in Belfast, the home to the Game of Throne’s set, just in time for the filming of the sixth season.

Of course, there is always the possibility that Kit could be over in Belfast with the rest of his co-stars to shoot a funeral scene, but we are determined to remain optimistic. 


With filming currently taking place for their next project in Hawaii, it seems that the comradeship of actors Zac Efron and Adam Devine has officially graduated to a full-blown bromance.

Not content with spending all day together on the set of Mike And Dave Need Wedding Dates, Zac, 27, and the 31-year-old Pitch Perfect star even opted to hang-out during their down-time on the tropical island.

This week, the pair decided that swimming with tiger sharks – the species which is responsible for more fatal attacks than any other – would be right up their street.

Zac, who reckons the tiger shark is his 'spirit animal', posted on Twitter a three-and-a-half minute long video clip of their underwater experiences, something which then generated more than 2,000 retweets.

The High School Musical star said he hoped his efforts would help raise awareness of the shark's endangered plight.

Still, elements of the clip have proved controversial – namely Mr Efron's decision to grab hold of one of the animals (the incident occurs at around the 2:18 mark).

While speaking to TMZ, one expert, Jeff Kurr, even warned that the dive itself was reckless. He explained that tiger sharks are extremely dangerous and unpredictable – and that grabbing a fin is an aggressive invite to a deadly attack.

Earlier in the week, Zac turned heads in a blue unitard costume while on set.
