The countdown is officially on for the final season of HBO's hit show Game of Thrones. 

The fantasy franchise, which is based on the George R. R. Martin book series, has fans in a FRENZY awaiting the return of their favourite (and most likely doomed) characters.

The season eight cast list how now been leaked by HBO and there's a very noticeable key player missing from episode one, according to metro.co.uk.

The broadcaster unveiled which of our token loved ones wil be popping up on April 14, as Westeros comes together (let us pray) to fight The Night King.

They may have to sit tight, as Vladimir Furdik, AKA The Night King and leader of the white walkers, is ABSENT from the season eight premiere, but don't relax yet.

It's been almost two long years since the season seven finale, and there are just six episodes left to go until we see who sits on the Iron Throne. There will be plenty of action, with the Night King or not.

Season seven saw the army of the dead blasting the wall down with their new phantom ice dragon (RIP), so we're surprised that the Night King seemingly has no feature at all in episode one.

Furdik mentioned in an interview that the biggest battle television has ever seen will begin two episodes later, so his screen time is more than secure.

He spoke to Hungarian website Sorozat Wiki and let the GOT cat out of the bag:

"In the third part of the last season, there is a battle that the creators intend to be the biggest in television history. Almost the full episode will be about the battle, it will take about an hour."

The GOT cast list has since been deleted, but two surprising faces are returning to bring joy to many fans; Tobias Menzies and Lino Facioli, as Edmure Tully and Robin Arryn. Menzies is about to star as Prince Philip in The Crown.

Entertainment Weekly somehow managed to watch filming one of the key scenes, and confirmed that some very unexpected old names are in the mix;

There are characters in the finale that I did not expect, I gradually begin to piece together what has happened in Westeros over the previous five episodes and try not to look like I’m freaking out."

Game of Thrones returns to HBO and Sky Atlantic on April 14, get ready for the most drama you'll see in our lifetime.

We've all experienced the highs and lows of Facebook, but recently it seems like the lows are endless.

From controversy surrounding Mark Zuckerberg, reports of paying children for labour to eavesdrop on conversations and using our own data for the company's agenda, it seems like the drama ain't worth the effort.

Now, researchers at New York University and Stanford University are saying that deactivating Facebook for just FOUR WEEKS can lead to a big improvement in people's mental health.

The researchers focused their study on the impact of quitting the social network on their mental health and behaviour.

The Welfare Effects of Social Media took place in the lead-up to the 2018 midterm elections in the US and 2,844 users took part in the study. The participants used the platform for over 15 minutes per day.

When the candidates deactivated their Facebook accounts, there was a noticeable increase in offline activities, like socialising with friends and family members.

Their well-being was also boosted, but the people involved were less informed about current events.

Researchers also discovered that anyone who deactivated their Facebook accounts were more likely to see a consistent reduction in their use of the social media app after the experiment concluded.

The authors wrote; "Our study offers the largest-scale experimental evidence available to date on the way Facebook affects a range of individual and social welfare measures,"

"Deactivation caused people to appreciate Facebook’s both positive and negative impacts on their lives," they said.

In a statement to The Washington Post a spokesperson for Facebook said its teams are working on creating meaningful connections across its platform. "This is one study of many on this topic and is should be considered that way," they said

We all crave new Beyoncé music every day, because without her collection of life-altering tunes, where would we be? God knows.

Mysterious music was leaked online the other day on iTunes, totally unauthorised.

The musical goddess has been known to randomly drop albums, ever since 2016's iconic Lemonade release, but this seemed a little too random…fans quickly realised it was old music though:

The old recordings were released under the name Queen Carter, and iTunes somehow allowed it to be uploaded until fans pointed out the strange mistake.

The albums Back Up, Rewind and Have Your Way appeared on Apple Music and Spotify, and was comprised of demos, unreleased tracks and demo songs by Queen Bey, which were removed a few hours later.

Songs such as After All Is Said and Done, a duet with Marc Nelson from 1999, Hollywood with Jay-Z from his 2006 album Kingdom Come, and another song from Austin Powers called Hey Goldmember.

A Missy Elliot collaboration from the rapper's second album was also on the tracklist, as well as Keep Giving Your Love to Me from Bad Boys II, and Control, a stand-alone song.

Beyoncé has dropped her last three albums as surprises, her 2013 self-titled project, Lemonade, and Everything is Love by The Carters.

We'll take ANYTHING she graciously offers, but unreleased songs without her authorisation is damn wrong, let the Queen have control over her own music.

Grammy-nominated R&B singer SZA was also victim to this same mysterious hacking, with old music being uploaded to iTunes under the name Sister Solana (her real name is Solana Rowe).

SZA addressed the album of old demo tracks being released on streaming services on her Instagram, calling the project "random scratches from 2015" and claimed that the songs are "def not new new!"

It's all very mysterious behaviour altogether.

Apple Music and Spotify have yet to comment on the matter, but we'd bet that Beyoncé ain't happy about this at all.

Who is the culprit making drama for no apparent reason, though? Spill the lemonade tea.

Facebook’s guidelines regarding what sort of content its users can post on the site have been revealed for the first time.

An investigation carried out by The Guardian examined more than 100 internal training manuals, spreadsheets and flowcharts to gain a better insight into how the social networking giant polices its users on issues such as violence, hate speech, terrorism, racism and self-harm.

A source told The Guardian: “Facebook cannot keep control of its content. It has grown too big, too quickly.”

There are concerns about the inconsistency of some policies, in particular, those surrounding the uploading of sexual content.

The documents obtained by the newspaper pointed out several shocking truths about Facebook’s policing strategy including the revelation that videos of abortions are allowed – as long as there is no nudity.

However, the leaked documents also showed the company are taking measures to improve policies, even if it they are only implemented following public pressure.

New guidelines were put in place following last year’s controversy over a picture taken during the Vietnam war that was removed from the site because the girl in the picture was naked.

According to The Guardian, Facebook now allow for “newsworthy exceptions” under its “terror of war” guidelines.

The investigation could not have come at a worse time for the social networking site as it faces mounting public pressure to disallow the publishing of disturbing Facebook Live content such as murders and sexual assaults.

It’s a tricky one for the company as they say they are trying to respect their users’ freedom of expression.

If the news that Blac Chyna is pregnant with Rob Kardashian's baby wasn't shocking enough, there's now a whole lot of family drama to go with it.

After the surprising announcement yesterday (via emoji form), Chyna's rep says the only reason it happened when it did was because the Kardashians leaked it. 

"She would have preferred to have announced it on Mother's Day herself, but her hand was forced," her rep told People, adding that the only people who knew about it on her side were Amber Rose and the rep. 

"Allegedly the other half of the family leaked her story so she had to announce it."

"[Chyna's] moment was taken from her, which is really sad."

And as for why Rob's family leaked the news, the rep said that they did it because they have "a TV show to promote."

There are SO many twists and turns in this family drama!

It was only a couple of days ago that TMZ leaked a video of Jared Leto listening to Taylor Swift's 1989, and let's just say, he was less than complimentary. 

He seemed to be kinda into Blank Space but had zero-love for Welcome to New York. He is even heard at the end of the video saying, "F**k her."

Since then though, Jared took to Twitter to apologise to Tay and her fans saying, "The truth is I think @taylorswift13 is amazing + an incredible example of what's possible.

"If I hurt her or her fans my sincerest apologies."

But now, the Hollywood Reporter has published a statement from Jared describing his motivations to file a lawsuit against TMZ for leaking the footage. 

Jared's company Sisyphus Touring filed the lawsuit against the Warner Bros-owned gossip site, alleging copyright infringement.

Jared claims that the video was stolen and he contacted the TMZ team before it went up to urge them not to publish it. 

"Jared's lawsuit alleges the video was shot on Sept. 8 by a camerman he hired, who then gave the video to TMZ after being promised $2,000 for it.

"According to Jared's lawsuit, the videographer later asked TMZ to not publish the video, telling them he did not own the footage," reports HR

 "They chose to post it anyway," Jared said in his statement. "Let's be clear. This was stolen footage. This was an invasion of privacy. And it was both legally and morally wrong."

Erm, what is this, Iggy?!

Footage of the star’s early career has emerged, and let’s just say it’s nothing like the Iggy we have come to know and obsessively try to rap like into our hairbrushes.

In what will no doubt be an embarrassing situation for the successful star, the song, entitled ‘Nothing Like Me,’ is, rather ironically, nothing like her…

What do you think of Iggy's first brush with the music industry? We're just glad there was a take 2!

Has someone leaked topless photos of Selena Gomez online? Well, at first glance, it certainly looks that way.

Some people are speculating that her ex Justin Bieber leaked the photos himself (we wouldn’t put it past him), but her reps are saying that it’s not her in the photos – and we think we believe them.

You can’t see the girl’s face in the photos, but she has freckles identical to Selena Gomez on her chest. But how hard is it to draw on a couple of freckles, really? You can see the photos for yourself here, but be warned, they are NSFW.

The deciding factor for us was her teeth. Here is an up close shot of Selena Gomez’s ACTUAL teeth:

And here is a close up of the topless girl’s teeth:

Selena’s are more slanted, right? We’re fairly sure these photos are fake – Justin Bieber, you’re off the hook – for now!

Former TOWIE star Lauren Goodger said she feels “powerless” after a sex tape with her ex was leaked.

The reality TV star is shocked that a graphic six-second clip showing her performing an intimate act on her ex-boyfriend, property developer, Jake McLean, 24, has gone viral.

The 28-year-old said she trusted her ex-boyfriend totally, even though the footage was apparently taken secretly on his phone and has been spread through Whatsapp and email.

The couple split last December after a number of rows.

“It is mortifying and humiliating. I’ve got no control over the situation I am in. I feel powerless,” Lauren said.

“My private life has been invaded in the most horrible way. I can even see how some girls would feel suicidal and not be able to cope in this situation.

“I don’t know if Jake was behind it. I am angry with him and have confronted him about it but it has not got me anywhere. He’s been texting me saying he’s sorry,” she added.

What a nightmare!
