The current series of Strictly Come Dancing is reaching one of the most exciting stages of the competition with Blackpool just around the corner, but we’re already dreading the end of the 2019 show.

Luckily, the series will return for a once off Christmas special and we’re feeling awfully excited about it since Strictly revealed the stellar line up.

Plenty of familiar faces are set to return to the ballroom this Christmas, including the wonderful Gemma Atkinson. The new mum ended up falling in love with Strictly professional dancer Gorka Marquez and gave birth to their first child earlier this year.

“The sequins really are going back on for Christmas. Back to being out of my comfort zone, out of my trackies and into high heels! Wish me luck!” the mum wrote.

As well as Gemma Atkinson, Joe Sugg will also return to Strictly. The Internet star will be joined by former TOWIE star Mark Wright, actress Chizzy Akudolu, journalist Richard Arnold and Debbie McGee.

Fans of the show were overjoyed with the lineup. They expressed their delight online.

“Woohoo, so happy to see all these faces back on the dance floor,” one said.

Another added, “Amazing line up – hope Gemma and Gorka dance together!”

One shared, “Best Christmas line-up ever.”

What do you think of this year’s Strictly Christmas line-up?


Michelle Keegan has spoken out about the difficulty of being in a long-distance marriage. The former Coronation Street star married TOWIE’s Mark Wright in 2015, but the pair have spent months apart due to work commitments.

Speaking on The Jonathan Ross Show, the Our Girl star said they were apart for four months.

She explained, “He got the job in LA while I was in Malaysia [filming Our Girl]. We were apart for about 4 months. It was really tough. People said how did you deal with it and stuff.

"Thank god for FaceTime and things like that,” the actress stressed.

Michelle said the being apart for such a long period of time was tough for both her and Mark, but the couple managed to make it work.

The Brassic actress said it was hard to get used to living with Mark again, especially after spending so much time apart.

She got used to her own company.

“You get so used to living on your own and doing your own thing. Little things… you like your house a certain way and he’d come in and he’d leave his underpants on the floor,” she grimaced.

"I’m not a cleaner, I’m not going to move them, they’ll be there for five days and I don’t care, I’m not moving them,” Michelle said.

The couple, who have been married for four years, are focusing on their careers for the time being but Michelle said that they are planning on having children one day.

The actress is constantly hounded about her family plans but stressed that it’ll happen when she is ready.

"My mum is on it as well. No plans yet, but we definitely do want children in the future,” the former soap star added.

The Jonathan Ross Show airs on ITV on Saturday at 10.30pm.


It's the hotly-anticipated new BBC drama – and it's arriving on small screens next month.

Yes, Our Girl has given Michelle Keegan one of her biggest roles since she left Coronation Street two years ago. 

Now the first image of the 29-year-old actress in character has been released… and we have to say we LOVE it.

Dressed in military attire, the Manchester-native plays Georgie Lane in a lead role.

She filmed the series in South Africa at the beginning of this year – a schedule which meant she was forced to spent several weeks at a time away from her husband of one-year, reality TV show star Mark Wright, 29.

The series will first air on BBC on Wednesday, September 7.


It's the show that made the Wright family famous, and it seems that some of them just can't walk away from it.

Jessica Wright is returning to TOWIE, just a few months after leaving the reality show for bigger things.

Jessica announced her departure from the ITVBe series last February, saying: “After 5 amazing years it is time for me to step away.”

However, she was recently spotted filming scenes with Bobby Norris.

An inside source told The Sun: “Everyone thought Jess was done with TOWIE but clearly she still remains loyal – or she just has plenty of time on her hands.”

However, another insider said she's just doing a cameo appearance: “She’s only back for a cameo as her and Bobby have the same type of dog. 

"She’s off to LA next week for a month of exciting meetings.”

We'll just have to wait to see what happens!



While we're certainly not the sorts to go into a wild tizzy every time a married celebrity speaks to a member of the opposite sex, we have to say recent pictures of Michelle Keegan have raised eyebrows. 

Indeed, the 29-year-old actress, who was been married to Mark Wright for a little more than a year, has now sent the rumour-mill into overdrive.

In the recent snaps, Michelle can be seen walking arm-in-arm with her attractive 26-year-old co-star, Luca Pasqualino.

They snuggle into one another, appear to share intimate conversation and walk around like no one is watching as he drapes an arm over her shoulder.

The cosy snaps come after Michelle admitted to LOOK that she finds it hard to find a perfect balance in her life, and that her hubby Mark critiques her wardrobe choices when they're going out.

"Mark gives his opinion. He'll point something out that I haven't seen before and be like, "That doesn't go.'"

The actress also admitted to the mag that she doesn't see her husband as much as she's like to.

"It's hard to juggle friends, work and a husband.

"I have to plan. Mark's always looking at his diary and I'm at mine and my friends are all in a group message trying to arrange their time," she said.

Michelle has just wrapped on the set of Our Girl, so hopefully we'll see more date night snaps of the lovable pair together.


They only married a year ago – but Mark Wright and Michelle Keegan have recently had to fight off rumours of a split.

Speculation began when Michelle, 29, moved to South Africa for work – and more recently Mr Wright jetted off to Las Vegas for a lads holiday.

That and on occasion Michelle has been seen without her wedding ring.

Now, 29-year-old Mr Wright has taken to Instagram to reiterate that all is well in his marriage. The Towie star posted an image of a delicious looking BLT, leading us all to believe that the couple are still very much together, for lunch at least. 

“The missus don't mess about when it comes to BLTs…” he wrote to his 1.2m followers on the social media platform.


The missus don't mess about when it comes to BLT's….

Mark’s sister, fellow Towie star Jessica, spoke to The Sun recently about her brother’s relationship, stating "it’s awful for them but they have to rise above it and they do. I feel so bad for them because you don’t want to have negative vibes around your relationship."

As firm believers in true love, Mark and Michelle, we’re rooting for you! Here’s to many more BLTs in your future.



With Soccer Aid right around the corner, the lads taking part decided to take a night off and go out partying – and WHAT a bunch!

Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson, Olly Murs and Mark Wright all went out for a night on the tiles last night, and looking at the pictures, they certainly had a great time.


Team night night out !! the gaffer for rest of world @niallhoran me and the other essex boy loving life @ollymurs

Mark shard a photo on Instagram of himself, Niall and Olly and captioned the snap: "Team night night out !! the gaffer for rest of world @niallhoran me and the other essex boy loving life @ollymurs."


Missed this lad ! @niallhoran

Later in the night, Louis shared a pic of him and Niall and said: "Missed this lad!" Aw!

God, how we wish we were there!


Last week, Mark Wright shared a photo on Instagram, and let's just say it was very revealing.

The snap showed him getting out of the bath, with just bubbles covering his… erm, modesty.

Many of his fans lashed out at him on Twitter, saying they thought it was a very disrespectful thing to do to his wife. One user wrote: "Mark put your body away you're married and being disrespectful to your wife!!! I would be fuming."

While another said: "I don't normally comment on things like this but a very strange thing to do when your married."

However, while speaking to Star Magazine, Mark responded to the question of whether Michelle was upset by the bath photo.

The reality star said: "It's a silly question. I mean, why would she be? Seriously?"

"People have seen me on the beach before with my top off."

He continued: If people want to think that [it was disrespectful behaviour], well, each to their own. People need to lighten up."

Well, OK then.


Mark Wright and Michelle Keegan are basically a living embodiment of Relationship #Goals.

They both have independent and successful careers, but love spending time together. They're definitely best pals. They're totally loved up. Oh, and they both just happen to look AMAZING in swimwear.

But it seems there was some trouble in paradise yesterday when Mark took to Instagram to gush about his wife of eight months – before deleting the entire thing just hours later.

The original post, featuring an old image of Michelle looking tanned and toned in a bright pink bikini, was definitely something of a trip down memory lane for Mark.

"I will never forget the day I first saw this pic. Before we had ever met," he wrote.

"I said, 'One day I will take that girl on a date'. We then bumped into each other. After one conversation I said, 'Whatever it takes, one day I will make that girl my wife.'

As per Mark's predictions, the pair did indeed marry last July in a sumptuous English country ceremony – but the TOWIE star said he had to be persistent to get Michelle down the aisle.

"She made it hard but just over three years later it happened. Never give up on something you want so badly.

"You can make any dream come true by just believing."

So far, so adorable, right? Totally – except that a few hours later, the post was nowhere to be seen on Mark's page.

Whether Michelle wasn't happy with an old photo of her being posted, or whether Mark just had second thoughts about getting lovey-dovey on social media is unclear, but the most is most certainly gone.

Better luck next time, Wrighty.


The Wright family only lost their beloved Nanny Pat last week, but that didn't stop horrible football supporters shout insults at Mark's brother, Josh. 

Gillingham footballer, Josh Wright, was playing a game against Millwall yesterday when the opposing side taunted Josh about his late grandmother.

Mark attended the game with his father, who was celebrating his 59th birthday, and took to Twitter shortly after the match to share his outrage. 

The 28-year-old wrote: "Football is football and hating on the opposing players is all part of it. 

"The few fans chanting disgusting stuff RE our nan is so low."

But it didn't totally effect the boys day out as Josh's team won 3-0 in the end.

"The thousands of @TheGillsFC fans singing THERES ONLY ONE JOSH WRIGHT at 3-0 up puts a smile write back on our faces," Mark continued.

Mark and his family certainly know how to get back on those haters.


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!


Her lips used to be, well, so natural.

Yes – let's for a moment think back to 2010 Lauren Goodger. Fresh-faced (in an Essex kinda way) and on the arm of one Mark Wright, the reality TV star found her fame and fortune on Towie

But how times have changed. Along with losing a significant amount of weight throughout 2015, Ms Goodger this year has furthermore embraced a brand new habit: that of pouting for a series of endless selfies.

And while there's no denying that the loved-up 29-year-old looks fantastic, her latest offering (after rocking THOSE eyebrows at the gym) has proven to be been the final straw for some of her weary fans.


Brrrrrr face #tues #cold #hmmm

Many urged her to stay away from fillers – saying she looked ridiculous. "You are a natural beauty without the lips. You have a beautiful natural smile.xxx" offered one observer in response to yesterday evening's Instagram post.

Others were more direct, however: "No way?! Surely she's hasn't done that to her face?!!! Lauren have a chat with Lesley Ash. #trout."

A third commentator remarked: "She's ruined with that s*** in her lips. She will look back on these pics one day and cringe – so pretty without those awful lips."

Still, in honour of what can only be described as a killer pout, SHEmazing! brings you Lauren Goodger's top six duckface selfies. Enjoy!
