We'll be honest here, we don't think we'd have the confidence to reach out to Noel Gallagher on Instagram.

Much and all as he's mellowed over the last two decades, the thought of being shot down by one of the UK's biggest musicians isn't something we relish.

But not everyone is as brave as little Sam Fisher who felt the fear and did it anyway.

Putting pencil to paper, Sam invited Noel to lead a discussion about drugs at his school, writing: "We would like to hear about when you used to take drugs and how you turned it around."

Sharing a photo of the letter on Instagram, Noel joked: "Thanks for the offer Sam but as much as I’d love to come and regale your PSHE class with war stories from The 90’s I’m gonna have to pass as I’m currently in re-hab..I mean the studio!"

Most people would bow out gracefully following this tongue-in-cheek rejection, but not good ol' Sam.

Sending the former Oasis star yet another letter, Sam asked if he could play on stage alongside his idol, telling Noel he could find some of his performances on YouTube with a quick search.

A clearly bemused Noel was quick to share the second letter, writing: "Play on stage with me? Blimey you don’t want much do you eh? I’m sure one of my bitches at HQ will sort you out a pass of some description and we can hang out and exchange life stories."

"You can tell me tall tales from your PSHE class (whatever that is!) and I’ll fill you in about the 90’s. Can I just point out is not an open invitation to every other f*cker on the planet."

The posts have amassed more than 100,000 likes since their upload over the weekend.

Never change, Noel.

Much as we adore Britney Jean Spears and the absolute corkers she has gifted the music scene over the past 18 years, it's fair to say she wasn't blessed with a voice quite as powerful as Christina Aguilera, Whitney Houston or Mariah Carey.

And that's fine – good ol' Brit brings her own thing to the stage, and we're always here for it.

So when she uploaded herself performing a rendition of Elvis Presley's Can't Help Falling In Love in honour of her 36th birthday, we couldn't hit play fast enough.

The 36-year-old clearly gave it her all, and props for that as they say, but if we had to choose, we'd probably opt for a quick blast of Toxic next time.

While some Instagram users compared her voice to a chipmunk's, hundreds others heaped praise upon the performance, with one writing: "Truly blessed with your beautiful voice."

We'll let you be the judge of that one…

If you thought Prince Harry getting down on on knee over a roast chicken was the cutest engagement story you've heard this year, we've just found a contender.

And it comes in the form of Kaley Cuoco's reaction to her boyfriend, Karl Cook's proposal.

In a video uploaded to Instagram earlier this morning, the Big Bang Theory actress can be seen in floods of tears as she tries to get her head around the fact she's engaged.

Clearly overwhelmed, the actress had to be reminded to reply to the big question after dissolving into tears.

"Well after nearly two years I finally got up the courage to ask her to marry me. This is the best night of my life and I think the video shows it is the best night for kaley as well," Karl wrote in a caption alongside the video.

Sharing the same video on her own account, Kaley wrote: "Still crying. every part of this night has been perfection just like you @mrtankcook I love you forever!"

Karl went on to share a shot of the ring he chose for his wife-to-be, writing: "I am so so so happy."

"Thank you @nadis_diamonds for making the greatest ring I could hope for. Absolutely brilliant. Thank you thank you."

In the aftermath of the proposal, Kaley and Karl shared their first dance as an engaged couple, and we'll be honest, the romance is nearly sending us over the edge.

"In life, there is nothing like dancing right after getting engaged," Karl wrote alongside the footage.

"The purity and grace of the moment are inexplicable, it is truly as though life were a balloon bouncing on the smoothest zephyr. Honey; all I want is to be a balloon bouncing, bobbing, and flowing through life together. You are my everything."

And yes, we ARE crying. What of it?

At this stage, most of us know that the dynamic within Girls Aloud was a little awkward at times.

While they all started out as earnest young wannabes back in 2002, their rise to fame saw a shift in allegiances among group members.

Rumours abound that Nadine and Cheryl often clashed while Sarah was regularly seen as the outsider of the group, and it looks like a recent post on Cheryl's Instagram page may finally confirm that.

Celebrating the 15-year anniversary of the band's formation, the mum-of-one chose to share a photo of herself alongside Nicola and Kimberley.

While both Nicola and Kimberley were given a lengthy tribute, Nadine and Sarah got little more than a mere tag.

"Crazy how time flies. 15 years ago today some of the best, craziest years of my life were just beginning. I had no idea what a life journey I was starting out on," she began.

"We had some of the most amazing times of our lives and made some incredible pop moments to put the cherry on top."

 

Sitting here drinking coffee with these two and watching babies 15 years later !!! Crazy how time flies…15 years ago today some of the best, craziest years of my life were just beginning. I had no idea what a life journey I was starting out on. We had some of the most amazing times of our lives and made some incredible pop moments to put the cherry on top In the end I left with these two amazing, inspiring gorgeous souls and the best friends anyone could ever ask for. You blessed me and I will never be able to thank you enough for the support, love and loyalty you brought to our group. I am so proud of what we achieved together. Love you all @lilcola @kimberleywalshofficial @nadinecoyle @sarahnicoleharding Thank you#Girlsaloud15

So far, so good, but th rest of the post has left Girls Aloud fans in no doubt that there is little love lost between Cheryl, Nadine and Sarah.

Referring to Nicola and Kimberley, Cheryl continued: "In the end I left with these two amazing, inspiring gorgeous souls and the best friends anyone could ever ask for."

"You blessed me and I will never be able to thank you enough for the support, love and loyalty you brought to our group. I am so proud of what we achieved together."

Fans were quick to notice the disparity, with one writing; "She has only specified 2 but tagged them all – nadine and sarah haven't made the cut."

Others jumped to Cheryl's defence, with one social media user writing:"They shouldn't be attacked for being closer to each other than the others."

"Like I said, they mentioned the other two to show that they haven't forgotten they were apart of it to. I'm sorry but I've seen both nadine and sarah post things and crop the other three out, so cut these three some slack."

Cheryl's post has amassed almost 175,000 likes since yesterday.

With 108 million followers, it'll come as no surprise to hear that Beyoncé had the most liked Instagram photo of the year.

The Crazy In Love singer's pregnancy announcement gathered up 11.18 million likes. Casual.

The public was pleasantly surprised when the mum-of-three revealed that she was expecting twins with her husband Jay-Z.

The extravagant photo stunned fans back in February.

We all remember where we were when she posted it, right?

Beyoncé rocked a long, green veil as she held her bump. She was surrounded by tonnes of flowers in the iconic photo that we still can’t get over, ten months later.

 

A post shared by Cristiano Ronaldo (@cristiano) on

In true Beyoncé fashion, the Halo singer featured on the list not once, but twice. The stunning photo of the mum holding her two twins made the number four spot on the most liked photos list.

Beyoncé was in good company, with Selena Gomez and Ronaldo coming in at the second and third place.

We feel like champs when one of our selfies receives 50 likes, we can’t imagine how Beyoncé copes with all the notifications she gets on Instagram.

 

A post shared by Selena Gomez (@selenagomez) on

However, Queen B isn’t the most popular woman on Instagram. Selena Gomez is rockin' the queen of Instagram crown with 130 million followers.

She has been joined by chart-topper Ariana Grande, reality star Kim Kardashian and Bad Blood singer Taylor Swift who have 333 million followers among them.

Will posing amongst thousands of flowers help us gain more Instagram followers? If so, we’re off to the nearest florist to start planning a Queen B inspired photo shoot.

December may be a week away, but it's fair to say Christmas party season is already in full swing.

And as well as being synonymous with shifting the wrong person and waking up with a pounding head, it's also the time of year when you go big or go home on the manicure front.

While you may opt for muted shades throughout the rest of the year, the festive season gives you carte blanche to go batsh*t crazy with those nails of yours.

If you're only dying to mix it up, but have found yourself stuck for some inspiration, worry not, because we've got you covered.

1. Doing it right.

When it comes to a woman's wedding day, it goes without saying that the bride's chosen aesthetic should be celebrated.

And with more and more women keen to showcase their personality through their bridal wear, it's no surprise most brides sport a quirky feature as part of their ensemble.

Whether it's rocking a pair of converse, stepping out in a bridal jumpsuit or going back in time and working a particularly traditional accessory, each bride ensures their chosen bridal wear is true to them in some way.

The Voice host, who will turn 34 in December, has been inundated with messages of support from social media users since sharing the news yesterday.

Grazia magazine has come under fire this week after Oscar-winner, Lupita Nyong'o, expressed upset over the fact her image was digitally altered on the cover of the publication's latest edition.

The 12 Years a Slave actress took to Instagram last night, and explained why the publication's decision to remove her ponytail has such wide-reaching implications.

"As I have made clear so often in the past with every fiber of my being, I embrace my natural heritage and despite having grown up thinking light skin and straight, silky hair were the standards of beauty, I now know that my dark skin and kinky, coily hair are beautiful too," Lupita began in a lengthy Instagram post.

"Being featured on the cover of a magazine fulfils me as it is an opportunity to show other dark, kinky-haired people, and particularly our children, that they are beautiful just the way they are."

 

As I have made clear so often in the past with every fiber of my being, I embrace my natural heritage and despite having grown up thinking light skin and straight, silky hair were the standards of beauty, I now know that my dark skin and kinky, coily hair are beautiful too. Being featured on the cover of a magazine fulfills me as it is an opportunity to show other dark, kinky-haired people, and particularly our children, that they are beautiful just the way they are. I am disappointed that @graziauk invited me to be on their cover and then edited out and smoothed my hair to fit their notion of what beautiful hair looks like. Had I been consulted, I would have explained that I cannot support or condone the omission of what is my native heritage with the intention that they appreciate that there is still a very long way to go to combat the unconscious prejudice against black women's complexion, hair style and texture. #dtmh

"I am disappointed that @graziauk invited me to be on their cover and then edited out and smoothed my hair to fit their notion of what beautiful hair looks like."

"Had I been consulted, I would have explained that I cannot support or condone the omission of what is my native heritage with the intention that they appreciate that there is still a very long way to go to combat the unconscious prejudice against black women's complexion, hair style and texture," she asserted.

Grazia has issued a statement in response to Lupita's justifiable upset, and acknowledged that the issue was one worth discussing, but asserts that they had not requested the digital alteration.

"Grazia is committed to representing diversity throughout its pages and apologises unreservedly to Lupita Nyong'o," they began.

"Grazia magazine would like to make it clear that at no point did they make any editorial request to the photographer for Lupita Nyong's' hair to be altered on this week's cover, nor did we alter it ourselves."

"But we apologise unreservedly for not upholding the highest of editorial standards in ensuring that we were aware of all alternations that had been made."

Twitter is far from impressed with the magazine's apology, with one social media user writing: "What a BS apology! Who if not you altered Lupita's image?"

"There are many ways to tell that this ‘apology’ is utter horseshit. However, the clearest way we can tell that you don’t actually give AF nor understand Lupita’s point is that you are still using the edited photo as your Twitter pic. Y’all ain’t too bright," added another.

Some brides will happily sacrifice comfort for style on their wedding day, and many others just aren't about that life.

In fact, the idea of feeling anything other than comfy AF on their big day is not something a lot of brides will entertain.

And that is where wedding pumps come in.

With countless brides opting to go flat on their wedding day, it's no surprise that Instagram is currently awash with thousands of stylish designs just perfect for the bride who's never even heard of 'car to bar' shoes.

And here is just a glimpse of our favourites…

When it comes to trolling, Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively are absolute pros.

The couple, who tied the knot in 2012, are less about the public declarations of love, and more interested in getting straight-up savage with one another… much to the delight of their millions of fans.

We mean, who could forget Blake's Ryan Gosling-inspired birthday message to her other half?!

And while they're often neck and neck in the savagery stakes, Ryan recently stormed ahead after choosing to share an image of Blake on-set in the Irish capital.

As countless media outlets mentioned this week, the actress wasn't looking as polished as normal (that's acting for ya, right?), but Ryan saw his chance and ran with it.

Uploading an image of Blake looking like most of us after a rough session and a night spent sleeping on our mate's sitting room floor, Ryan simply wrote: "No filter."

And Instagram is here for it.

"You guys are too funny," wrote one Irish fan while another follower added: "Relationship goals."

Blake, your move.
