Get ready to be glued to your earphones, ladies, because our favourite online store, PrettyLittleThing has announced a brand new podcast.

Introducing PLT: Behind Closed Doors is currently sitting at number one on the podcast charts, and for a good reason.

The brand have described the audio as, "A podcast that is true to its name. A way to connect to our audience in a different way with no subject off limits."

The podcast is essentially a slumber party with the gals, where gossip is the sauce served ALL NIGHT LONG, with some healthy female bonding to boot.

To kick off 2019, the crew are hanging out with their gorgeous girls who inspire them daily. It's time to get to know them a lot better, and luckily they're sharing the footage with their audiences and PLT fans globally.

From stories the models and ambassadors have never shared before, to their everyday routines; it's time to really get into the minds of you favourites and take down the barriers of social media. Real talk.

The nine-part mega series will have you blaring the volume and eagerly awaiting the next episode. On Tuesday 22 of January, the debut podcast featured the absolute BABE that is Maya Jama.

Jama is a face of PLT, a TV personality, fashionista and radio presenter herself, giving us purely good vibes. Describing the podcast in her own words, Maya said;

“So excited for PLT to be stepping into the podcast world with Behind Closed Doors. They flipped the tables and put me in the hot seat. Listen in to hear me talk life, face masks and dealing with stalkers."

Stalkers? This we HAVE to hear.

Behind Closed Doors is the latest gift that keeps on giving. PLT Brand Ambassador Megan Barton Hanson will be breaking boundaries, speaking on subjects personal to her;

“Stripper heels are not the easiest to walk in”, she reveals. “I know there has been a lot of talk about my previous profession, so it feels good to set the record straight and open up about my past with PLT in a fun and comfortable environment.”

It's always fabulous to hear women opening up and getting candid about their everyday lives. We can't wait to hear even more from the clothing brand, check out the first episode for some scandal and slumber party vibes.

Listen to the new podcast on iTunesSpotify & Acast, but leave plenty of time, because you'll be pure BINGEING it.

Our FAVE Love Island host has spoken about her struggle with anxiety.

It may come as a surprise but Caroline admitted that her mental health dips when she isn't working.

Additionally, she revealed that her anxiety is particularly challenging when she is between jobs.

On Loose Women, Caroline explained: “Weirdly the anxiety I got more when I’m not working.”

“Work takes away my anxiety, doing live TV takes away anything else. Being on stage I’m less nervous than just being me.”

In an attempt to ease her mind, the presenter has found comfort in hypnotherapy sessions.

Caroline's sessions are an important part of her regime before she hits the West End stage.

The 39-year-old recently made her debut in theatre in Chicago and credited the hypnotherapy for keeping her head in a good place.  

“When I had eight days to learn the role I went to see him and he put my mind in the right place,” she said.

“Everyone’s different, if I’m going through a bit of a tough time I can just call him and say, ‘hey can I come over and see you?'”

Our fave Love Island babe, Caroline Flack has reportedly called off her engagement to Andrew Brady.

The Sun has claimed this is due to Caroline believing that Andrew is "full of lies."

The 38-year-old began dating the Apprentice participant, Andrew, in January of this year.

Clearly they enjoy living life in the fast-lane, as three months later Caroline announced on the gram that the 27-year-old had popped the question. 

Andrew took to Insta stories to reveal the news, which according to a friend of the presenter, wasn't the way she wanted to do it. (Not cool, dude). 

According to The Sun, the source said: "Caroline is so sad about what has happened."

"She’s disappointed that Andrew has decided to make this public at this stage. She had hoped to deal with this privately.

"At this point she feels like he has used her so much, and that he’s full of lies," alleged the source.

In a statement to The Sun, Caroline confirmed the break-up news.

“I’m sad to announce that Andrew and I have decided to part ways. Unfortunately it was not to be.

"I wish him all the best. At least there’s a Villa waiting for me. It’s back to the ol’ grafting.”

We'd LIVE for the moment Caroline rocks up as a Love Island contestant.

With Laura Whitmore quitting the show and the impending ban on reality TV competitors, I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here seems to be undergoing a major makeover.

And since she’s already claimed the Queen of the Jungle title, Geordie Shore’s Vicky Pattison is heading back to Oz in search of her next gig.

Fresh from her stint on the Loose Women panel, the reality TV star will be joining comedian Chris Ramsey, EastEnders’ Joe Swash and X Factor’s Stacey Solomon to present the new I’m A Celeb… spin-off show, I’m A Celebrity: Extra Camp.

According to The Sun, the new show will replace Laura Whitmore’s I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here Now!.

A source told the paper that as last year’s winner Vicky was mad to return to the show, but “while she was always the front-runner [for Laura’s job], ITV took their time with the decision”.

I’m A Celeb… will return to screens this November.

Since Sir Terry Wogan passed away, the tributes have been pouring in from across the world.

Presenters, friends, actors, have all given us a little glimpse into the life of Terry Wogan, but one radio presenter wrote the most touching tribute you could ask for.

2FM's Will Leahy wrote a tribute on Facebook, and probably said what most of us felt about Sir Terry:

And Terry had all the warmth in the world. But it wasn't just the way he spoke or the sound of his voice, Terry seemed to have it all:

As we all know, when your passionate about your work, it's like going to Disneyland when you sit in your idol's studio, or speak to them over the phone:

We couldn't agree more with Will. Terry will live on in our hearts as one of the Greats, and from this tribute it's clear to see that he meant a lot of things to a lot of people.

Each week, we speak to an inspiring go-getter as part of our Rising Stars series.

Here, Emily O'Donnell of IrishTV.ie joins us to candidly talk about her impressive career, breaking world records, E! News – and why the camera just doesn't make her nervous (even if going on dates still does)…

When 32 year-old Leopardstown native, Emily O’Donnell, successfully completed the challenge of wearing a different outfit each day for an entire year back in 2013, she didn’t realise that she had actually set a Guinness World Record.

In the aftermath, she is – unsurprisingly – known for her love of style.

Still, rather refreshingly, these days her interests and skills extend far beyond mere fashion. For example, her show for Irish TV, Wicklow Country Matters, is currently enjoying huge success.

Indeed, with the station having just recently signed a deal to air in the US, the up-and-coming presenter is about to be seen by a whole new audience.

Should luck keep shining on Emily, a position at E! News could also be on the cards: she recently applied for a position at the station's London office.

And regardless of the outcome of that application, Emily – chatty, warm and outgoing – is certainly a natural in front of the camera.

“Normal things, like dates, would make me nervous, but being on television doesn’t make me nervous at all,” she laughs. “I’m completely at ease when I go on air.

"I love chatting to people for my show and I get to meet so many interesting characters too.”  

With a Masters in PR under her belt, Emily kick-started her career by working with fashion clients in consumer PR. Even though she adored the job, she didn’t particularly enjoy being confined to a desk.

Thus, Emily embarked upon a fashion styling course before going on to assist stylist Roxanne Parker on various magazine shoots.

It was only after RTE invited her take part in a pilot for a reality TV series, ICA Boot Camp, that she “really caught the TV bug,” and so was inspired to study TV presentation, production and direction.

As far as Emily’s career highlights go, it’s a toss between presenting for Fashion One TV – where she got to interview Hunger Games actor Alexander Ludwig – and the aforementioned Guinness world record-setting 365 Style Diary Project

Meanwhile, and although Wicklow County Matters attracts some of the highest viewer ratings on the channel, Emily is not one to rest on her laurels.

An idea she pitched to the station for on Irish milliners and crafts people is currently in production and will run later this year as a six-part series. With so much on her plate, what will happen if E! News comes calling? 

“If I got the job, then yes I would give it a go, but I’m a home bird at heart. To be honest, I love my job at Irish TV and now that it will be viewed in America, my mum won’t be the only one watching me any more!” she laughs.

“I love Ireland too much to make a permanent move, but if E! asked me over, I would probably find it hard to say no!”

Jimmy Carr was left a little red-faced last night after an inappropriate joke he made got a less-than-desired reaction from the crowd.

The comedian was hosting last night’s Q Awards when he made an ill-conceived “joke” about Oscar Pistorious, who was jailed for five years on Tuesday for the murder of his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp.

Jimmy was speaking about toilet queues when he said: “So frustrating. All I’m saying is I can see it from Oscar Pistorious’ point of view.”

Rather unfortunately, the comedian didn’t stop there and went on to say: “That’s not the controversial bit. Here it comes…I blame her. If she hadn’t been in that disabled toilet none of this would have happened.”

The crowd were unforgiving and Jimmy’s comments went down like a lead balloon leaving an awkward silence in its wake.

The comedian then tried to loosen the crowd up and shouted at them: “It’s the f***ing Q Awards, come on!”

He wasn’t oblivious to his mess-up and later told The Mirror: “I think it went all right. I’m going to go home and write some new jokes.”

Might be a good move, Jimmy…

Something tells us he won't be getting a gig stateside anytime soon.

There is big news this afternoon as Peter O’Riordan has been announced as a new presenter for TV3’s Xposé.

Now, if you think you haven’t heard this name before, we are here to tell you that you have. Oh, you definitely have.

We were all pretty shocked when Xtra Factor presenter Caroline Flack announced that she was leaving the show.

Caroline said it was just time to “pass on the baton” to another presenter, in this case, radio host Sarah-Jane Crawford.

But what she failed to mention was that she had her eye on another massive TV gig – Strictly Come Dancing!

Caroline is a big fan of the show, and has reportedly been approached by BBC bosses to be the new presenter for the next series.

Caroline knows it could be her next big step and it would be an extra boost to beat her ex-boss Simon Cowell in the ratings!

While nothing has been set in stone yet, Strictly Come Dancing star Brendan Cole revealed he’d love to see her on the show.

“She’d be great, definitely. That would be amazing,” the 38-year-old dancer said.

Interesting move Caroline!
