It looks like the rain isn’t going anywhere this weekend so we’ll be staying indoors instead of enjoying barbecues and trips to the beach.

Luckily, you will be pleasantly entertained with dozens of shows and movies airing on the TV across the weekend.

As usual, we will be tuning into The Graham Norton Show which never fails to brighten our Friday nights. The chat show is bound to cheer us up on this dreary Friday with another stellar line-up.

The Corkman will be joined by pop royalty this week as Madonna will join Graham to discuss her new album, her controversial Eurovision performance and her iconic career.

Also joining Graham is legendary actor Ian McKellan, who is always a joy on the show.

Stars of Yesterday Lily James and Himesh Patel will join the movie’s director Danny Boyle to chat about their new flick.

There will also be music from Sheryl Crow who will perform her new single Still the Good Old Days.

The Graham Norton Show airs at 10.35 pm on BBC One.


I have a confession to make… I have seen Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again three times. I know, I know, there are so many incredible movies out at the moment, but there’s something about this cheesy film that I just can’t resist.

Sure, it is pretty cringe-worthy and goofy, but the touching storyline of Sophie and her family trying to cope with the loss of Donna really tugs at your heart strings.

Seeing the adventures of young Donna unfold on screen was really moving and extremely enjoyable because I was madly in love with the three actors playing young Sam, Bill and Harry.

Okay, maybe the main reason I keep going to see this film is Josh Dylan, but it is also the friendship, the setting (take me to Greece now, please) and glorious duo that is Julie Walters and Christine Baranski.

I promised myself I wouldn’t go see the movie a fourth time, however, when I spotted this upcoming event I broke that promise instantly.

The Lighthouse Cinema is hosting a sing-along screening of Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again and I will without a doubt be there singing (badly) along to every single word of every single song.

“One of the most popular films of Summer 2018 returns for a one day only Sing-Along event! Not that you'll need any encouragement singing ABBA songs but feel free to give it loads.”

“Get ready to sing and dance, laugh and love all over again.”

The screening takes place on September 16 and tickets are available here.

This is the dream musical event. What else would you do on a Sunday evening other than sing (badly) along to Waterloo and stuff your face with popcorn?



There are so many things I ADORED about Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again. The feel-good musical inspired by the music of ABBA was everything I wanted and more.

I was surprised by just how good the soundtrack was considering they sang most of ABBA's greatest hits in the original film. However, it's been a week since I first watched the movie and Cher’s version of Fernando is still stuck in my head.

One thing that really stood out for me (apart from young Bill aka the man of my dreams) was the young Donna’s style.

The main focus of the movie was young Donna’s journey from graduate to mum, but I couldn’t help but swoon over her outfits. Her quirky boho style was simple, but striking.

Obviously, we’d never get away with wearing outfits like Donna's here in Ireland- thanks rain- but I thought I’d gather up some of the nicest pieces inspired by young Donna.

Sure, it may not be sunny enough to rock these looks in reality, but you can wear them, stick on the soundtrack and pretend you’re frolocking around a Greek island in the 1970s.

After months of keeping us on our toes, it has been confirmed that there will be a Downton Abbey film!

The beloved television series went on for six drama-filled seasons, winning three Golden Globe Awards, 15 Primetime Emmys and a BAFTA.

The show has gained global attention, becoming the most nominated, non-U.S. television show in Emmy history!


As Violet says, ""I'm not a romantic, but even I concede that the heart does not exist solely for the purpose to pump blood." And our hearts beat for Downton Abbey!

Details of the film’s plot have yet to be released, but we do know it will feature the next chapter for the Crawley family.

It has been announced that one of the series’ key cast members will NOT be in the film. Lady Rose MacClare, played by Lily James, will not be in the upcoming drama.

When asked the reason for her absence, she told People: “My character Rose moved off to New York, so it would be farfetched to bring her back.”

She explained that because it was a film, it would be too hard to fit Rose in. Otherwise, she would have loved to appear in a cameo.

The film’s delay of production had been due to scheduling conflicts with different cast members.

"There has been a lot of goodwill from all of us, but logistically, it's a bit of a minefield. It's very difficult to get 22 actors together," said Joanne Froggatt, Anna Bates in the series.

Finally overcoming this obstacle, production for the film has officially began this summer, and we can’t wait to see what happens next!



From its statement trenches to patterned scarves, Burberry has long been synonymous with luxury.

But as the iconic brand’s newly released Christmas trailer suggests, Burberry is also a name which has survived the trials and tribulations of the 20th century.

Featuring our very own Domhnall Gleeson as brand founder Thomas Burberry and American Sniper star Sienna Miller as his wife, the label’s latest mini movie documents 160 years of fictionalised history.

In what is bound to be one of the year’s most stunning advertising campaigns, Brendan Gleeson’s son can be seen kissing the popular model, while The Wire’s Dominic West plays British explorer Ernest Shackleton and Cinderella lead Lily James channels a fictional pilot based on Betty Kirby-Green.

Get your first Christmas feels below:




Lily James has defended herself against reports that her waist was digitally altered for the live-action adaption of Disney’s Cinderella.

Rumours of CGI being used to make her waist appear smaller than natural began when the official trailer for the movie was released. Parents in particular were not impressed that children were being subjected to this seemingly impossible ideal.

The Downton Abbey star however has denied any such digital alterations were made, telling Nightline:

“I have naturally a quite small waist. And on top of that I have a corset that was pulled me into the inch of my life … And then the skirt is so big and the proportions make it looks smaller than it is.”

Lily also spoke about having difficulty digesting food on set, which was bad news for co-star Richard Madden she told E! News:

"When [the corset] was on we would be on continuous days so we wouldn't stop for lunch or a lovely tea like this—you'd be sort of eating on the move," she revealed. "In that case, I couldn't untie the corset. So if you ate food it didn't really digest properly and I'd be burping all afternoon in [Richard Madden]'s face, and it was just really sort of unpleasant. I'd have soup so that I could still eat but it wouldn't get stuck."

Nice, we're sure he didn't expect a real-life Disney princess to burp in his face. We love it! 

So, there it is – Cinderella's dress is all natural, apart from the use of a corset of course! 



The cast for the upcoming rom-zom-com Pride, Prejudice and Zombies has finally been announced, and involves some of the biggest up and coming stars this side of the atlantic.

The film, based on the best selling book by Seth Grahame-Smith, is a comedic twist on the original 19th century novel where the country dances and witty wordplay is interrupted by a zombie attack.

Playing the now action-hero Elizabeth Bennett is Lily James, best known as Lady Rose in Downton Abbey.

Playing opposite her will be Maleficent’s Sam Reilly as Mr Darcy and Australian actress Bella Heathcote as Elizabeth’s sister, Jane.

The film adaptation has been slow to get off the ground, with Natalie Portman, Lily Collins and Emma Stone involved at various points.

Natalie will not be acting in the movie, but is still attached to the project as a producer.



Disney managed to succeed in turning its classic animation film, Sleeping Beauty into the current hit that is Maleficent. But Disney isn’t stopping there, as its just revealed that they are planning to turn family favourite Cinderella, into a live action film.

The film will be released in 2015 and will star Helena Boham Carter, Lily James and Cate Blanchett.

After this amazing teaser, we are already excited!
