AWe all know how wrecked you feel after a long day at the office. 

All you want is to take your bar off and get into bed to watch Netflix.

Some people adore their sleep – but what if you love sex too?

Could you give up your snoozing for getting it on? 

A study was carried out by Mattress Advisor, who surveyed people about their sleep and sex habits.

And what did they say?

Single people get more shut-eye and those in relationships have sex nearly 3 times more per month. 

People were ok with giving up 54.3 minutes of sleep to have sex.

And even after a tiring day, 84% of people would give up z's for a night-time romp. 

People in relationships were intimate an average of 8.7 days per month and they had an average of 7.7 hours of sleep per month. 

Single people slept 7.1 hours per night and had sex 6.2 days per month. 

It might seem like only 12 more minutes of sleep, that adds up to almost an hour and a half of sleep during the week. 

So it seems the better the sex life, the better quality of sleep people get – like we needed an excuse, right?

Oh, Yewande – what will we do with you?

You had everyone rooting for you and now they've had enough.

In some ways, I don't blame viewers for being fed up with her huffy, cold and downright rude treatment of Danny.

On the other hand, I totally empathise with how being crippled with insecurity can make you wanna jump ship before you're left heartbroken.

Self-preservation, right?

But she has been the perfect example of how you can f&ck up a relationship before you've en given it a chance.

Many fans of Love Island are saying that by repeating, ''Oh, Danny's head will be turned'' that she's GIVEN HIM A REASON TO HAVE HIS HEAD TURNED. 

Self-fulfilling prophecy – that was until the other Islanders stepped in in last nights episode.

So Amber, Michael, Curtis, Amy, and Anna gathered round the scientist and gave her a much-needed kick up the arse about how she was acting around Danny.

They played out scenes showing her what she really looked like in her interactions – and it was brilliant.

The penny did seem to drop and Yewande dropped the mask of insecurity and asked Danny to talk. 

He looked delighted as she promised to be more affectionate and they even had a kiss.

But fans of the show are not buying it- as the new girl, Arabella had taken Danny n date that day and they think Yewande was being fake.

One said, ''Yewande stated she knew that when someone else came in his head would be turned. I say he's heads been turned because of her behaviour and she's got no one to blame only her self.''

While another wrote, ''Everyone’s sending for Yewande “she’s only acting like that for Danny cuz Arabella came in” yet Molly acres the same way with Maura yet no one sent for her but okay.''

The preview for tonight looks like Yewande might have been right all along as Danny talks about the chemistry between him and Arabella – or is he just fed up of Yewandes attitude?

We'll be tuning in tonight to find out…

It was the subject of many a fanfic story but now Tom Felton is coming out with it.

The actor who played the Hogwarts bully, Draco Malfoy, has opened up about what he thinks Draco and Harry really made of each other. 

And it was far from how they acted together on screen.

Tom was speaking at a Universal Orlando event which centered on the opening of a new Wizarding World of Harry Potter rollercoaster, Hagrid's Motorbike Adventure.

The actor was there with his Harry Potter castmates Rupert Grint, Evanna Lynch, Warwick Davis, and James and Oliver Phelps.

Talk turned to the popular fanfics and Tom was asked about the Harry/Draco relationship.

He said, ''Harry was constantly crushing on Draco. He just couldn't hide it."

Rupert added, ''I think he made quite an impression on Ron, as well."

The constant arguing and griping at each other?

Deffo sexual tension, right?

Tom wasn't so sure about the Draco and Hermione romantic fanfic though.

He said, ''I feel like I've seen some fanfics along that line. I've seen some pictures. Some alarming ones.''

So it' just the Malfoy/Potter one he's keen on, it seems.

Wonder what Daniel Radcliffe has to say about that…

I was seventeen the first time I fell in love. 

It was with one of my childhood friends and we had what I now know was chemistry (at the time he was just constantly getting under my skin).

But when we started going out, everything clicked into place.

We fell into an all-consuming type of love, the only type you can have when you're 17.

It was the messaging under the covers at night/hungry kisses in my hall on a school night/naive and hormone-fuelled kinda thing.

Being a teenager in general, your world is small and that means that everything is heightened.

This person is suddenly your whole life and because it's the first time you're having these feelings…it's intense. 

Things like jealousy rear their ugly head for the first time and this can cause dizzying heights and crashing lows.

When the inevitable heartbreak came, we were nineteen.

My whole world blurred and temporarily nothing seemed to make sense.

Being with your first love is a magical time and one that many of us just can't seem to let go of – but why?

Why do we have this bond?

So, this is the science bit.

When two people first meet, their bodies release a stress hormone called norepinephrine.

This is what makes you have the butterflies in your stomach, heart pounding away in your chest, the whole works. 

Researchers at Arizona State University College also found this cool thing – the hormone makes events burn into your memory.

You know the way you can remember specific kisses or conversations you had but what happened the day before is a blur?

They discovered a link that causes these strong emotions to form a specific sensory experience. 

In other words, when you get around that person again, their presence causes those old memories and initial feelings to come flooding back.

It's not that you don't forget about them; when you see them again, those old feelings of first love can return.

So it looks like first love is the deepest – in a literal sense as it's carved out what you think love should look like.

We never learn as much from a relationship as we do from our first serious one and because of that, they will never fully leave us. 

In the words of writer Daphne du Maurier, ''I am glad it cannot happen twice, the fever of first love. For it is a fever, and a burden, too, whatever the poets may say."

A new study by eating disorder charity Beat suggests that dating app users are "more likely to have unhealthy attitudes to weight".

Those who use dating apps might be at a higher risk of controlling their weight through laxative use, fasting and vomiting, according to the research.

The American study is based on a survey of 1,700 adults. Beat stated that dating app users at risk of these habits needed to be offered support in order to reduce the risk of bad weight management habits developing.

Apps like OkCupid, Grindr, Tinder and Bumble have grown massively in popularity over the last couple of years, with men and women hoping to find romantic and sexual partners through swiping.

Physical appearance is one of the main attributes which dating app users evaluate when searching for a potential partner, with emphasis placed firmly on a person's image. 

The study was published in the Journal of Eating Disorders, with researchers comparing the behaviour of those who used dating apps versus those who didn't.

Dating app users apparently have higher odds of engaging in six core unhealthy habits to control weight; vomiting, using laxatives, diet pills, using muscle-building supplements and anabolic steroids.

183 women and 209 men out of the 1,726 people surveyed claimed they used dating apps. Roughly half of men and women admitted to fasting in order to control their weight. 

One-in-three men in that group and one-in-five women said they would vomit to control their calorie count. 40 percent of men and one-in-four women claimed to use laxatives…yikes.

The research also showed that men who used dating apps were more likely to use steroids and supplements to build up muscle, which isn't surprising considering the six-packs constantly displayed on reality shows like Love Island.

The lead author of the study from Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health, Dr Alvin Tran, said they found higher rates of unhealthy behaviours among ethnic minorities, interestingly.

"While we do not know if the people in our study were already engaging in these weight control behaviours before using dating apps, we worry that the use of these image and appearance-focused services could exacerbate those behaviours."

He continued;

"With the tremendous growth in dating app usage in the US, and an increasing number of studies linking their use to body image concerns and unhealthy weight control behaviours, there is a need to further understand how dating apps influence health behaviours and outcomes."

Tom Quinn, director external affairs at Beat, said they welcome studies which can help to identify triggers of eating disorders.

"Not everyone who uses unhealthy weight control behaviours will have an eating disorder, nor will they get one, but such behaviours can contribute to the development of the illnesses for people who are already vulnerable and can prevent recovery for those who are ill."

He added; "It is important to note that this research does not prove a causal link between dating apps and unhealthy weight control behaviours. 

"Nevertheless, it is important that dating app users who may be at risk of eating disorders are directed to sources of support."

Love Island 2018 winner Dani Dyer has made her first public appearance with her new beau, Sammy Kimmence, and couldn't look happier.

The 23-year-old appeared hand-in-hand a the Godzilla II: King Of The Monsters premiere with Kimmence by her side in London.

The happy pair arrived looking smitten, and beamed at the waiting paparazzi just days after hitting out at fans over the new romance.

The television personality let her outfit do the talking this time, sporting a white blazer emblazoned with the word 'honest' on the back.

The star was working the camera from every angle, and pulled out all the stops for the evening.

Her stockbroker boyfriend decided against posing with Dani on the red carpet, despite the fact that it was their first public appearance as a duo.

The reality star rebutted fans who slammed her new relationship with former flame Sammy.

After uploading a picture of herself and Sammy over the weekend, fans berated her for moving on quickly after her break-up with fellow Love Island winner and ex, Jack Fincham.

Instagram users made their opinions clear, saying things like, "How do people move on so quickly? I’d love to know!” and "What you playing at? Jack is so fit.” (People are shockingly quick to judge women they don't even know…)

Dani didn't hold back with her reply, revealing that she's happier than ever and doesn't care what anyone else thinks; "“I’m not going to delete anyone’s comments. You can all say what you want to say honestly we live in a free world.

"But I’m so happy. I ain’t living a life to prove to people or to fake to people I am something I am not I’ve always been real."

She continued: “Some people like it some people don’t. I’m focusing on number one. No time for anything no plans made it’s just happened and you can judge all you want.

“But come on I’m the real judge Judy.”

Dani split up with her ex, Jack Fincham, in April after 10 months together. He has recently signed up for the next series of Celebs Go Dating, so his love life mustn't be as successful as Dani's…

We're glad Dani has the sense to ignore the online trolls, people most likely wouldn't be as quick to harass Jack online if he had a new girlfriend…

Reports are stating that Pete Davidson and Kate Beckinsale are officially OVER after circa four months of dating.

We're heartbroken simply because their relationship created possibly the greatest photo/meme that has circulated the internet. Periodt.

You know the one, with the tongue kissing and Queer Eye's Antoni resembling every third wheel ever:

The duo met at a Golden Globes after-party and were all over each other in public ever since.

They may have traumatised Antoni for life, but at least the SNL star and award-winning actress have apparently stayed friends since calling it quits.

“They're still friendly but are not on romantic terms,” the source told Entertainment Tonight.

Meanwhile, People is out here reporting slightly different news, with a source saying that Pete and Kate are technically still together, but they’ve slowed down a lot;

“Pete and Kate got super serious very fast, but they’ve decided to slow things down a bit,” the source explains. “They’re still dating as of now.”

Page Six reported when the pair met; “They were flirting all night and sipping champagne. They were outside on the patio and left together." Since then, we've been blinded by PDA pics.

Not anymore, folks, their kissing reign has been dethroned.

Channing Tatum and Jessie J’s relationship is stronger than ever and it sounds like things are getting pretty serious between the pair.

The duo, who have been together for five months, are reportedly considering taking their relationship to the next level.

A source told new! magazine that they’re thinking about getting married. “Jessie and Channing’s relationship has been going from strength to strength lately, which has really taken their friends by surprise.”

They added: “In fact, things have got so serious they’ve even discussed getting hitched, which isn’t too surprising when you consider that Channing is a really mature guy who knows exactly what he wants.”

The Step Up actor was previously married to his co-star Jenna Dewan.

“He’s been married before so it’s not a scary topic for him and he’s certainly not afraid of commitment, while Jessie has been desperate to find The One for some time now after a few failed relationships, and she thinks Channing could be him. She’s pinching herself she’s so happy,” they shared.

The pair have been extremely private about their relationship so far but it sounds like things have been getting pretty serious since they first started dating late last year.

We might inherit certain things form our parents, like blue eyes of an our height but what about our ability to cheat?

It might sound extreme but is there anything in it?

Bloom&Wild looked asked a few questions about genetics to Dr. Daniel Kelberman, from Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health.

When it comes to pulling the wool over your other halves eyes, is it something learned from our Mum and Dad?

Dr Kelberman believes not.

He said, ''No – such behaviours are acquired and nothing to do with genetics.''
He continued, ''[Speaking generally about behaviour-related genetics], there are lots of studies on the genes involved in inheritance, most of which are contentious. There are potentially thousands of genes involved, and our estimates at present only account for a very small amount of what is inherited.”

This therefore means cheating is something you may act out with on your own and not inherited from your parents. 

Other genetic questions asked including one about obesity and height.

So is obesity inherited?

Dr Kelbermman said, ''There are many genes that have been implicated in increased BMI, but few rarely proven and the biological basis is unknown. Genetics is suggested to play a role, but quite a small one.''

He added, ''There are rare forms of childhood onset obesity that are caused by mutation of a single gene, but these would be considered more of a rare disease than the phenomenon of increasing rates of obesity in the population.''

So if you feel the need to cheat, don't go blaming genetics.

In a day which is just SATURATED with Kardashian gossip (cheers, Tristan, you're a melt)…let's not forget that Kourtney Kardashian had an awkward encounter with ex-boyfriend Younes Bendjima.

The pair split six months ago after dating for two years, following pictures surfacing showing the young model getting cosy with another girl on holidays. 

E! News reports that the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, who called it quits with her former beau last August, was seen standing alongside her ex at Alfred Tea Room in Los Angeles.

Her fans may have gotten excited imaging a romantic reunion between the pair,  E! News are saying that this was a chance encounter rather than a planned meeting.

"Kourtney bumped into Younes getting coffee at Alfred. It wasn't a planned meet up," an insider source told the publication. "She goes there often and so does he. She was happy to see him and very nice. It wasn't awkward for her and they chatted for a few minutes."

Younes bought Kourtney a latte, which seems nice until you remember he got cosy with another woman…

"It was sweet and she appreciated it. She gave him a hug and went on her way," the source claiemd. "He texts her from time to time but she has moved on. It was nice to see him and she was glad to see he's doing well."

The former couple ended their romance when Kourtney learned of him getting cosy in Mexico with another girl, but last December, Younes posted a tribute to his famous ex on Instagram.

"Let's not forget this beautiful woman inside and out," Younes wrote alongside pictures of Kourtney. "I'm not the type of man that forgets moments like that. You are an amazing woman and mum and I hope you will find happiness for you and your children."

"It's all love at the end of the day…we don't know what can happen tomorrow so there you go," he finished.

Apparently, the same source said; "Kourtney heard he had posted, but she has moved on from that time in her life. She doesn't trust Younes and his intentions. It felt like he was looking for attention and to be relevant again."

"She didn't think much of it. She's focused on other people and other things." Kourtney hasn't been in contact with Younes since the photos, and has gotten on with her life without him.

"She knows he is still hurting and misses her, but she isn't focused on him." Damn right girl, you don't need no man.

Typical internet. As soon as a celebrity break-up happens, it just HAS to go and blame someone for the split, and assume an affair is taking place while they're at it.

Lady Gaga and her fiancé Christian Carino have officially called off their engagement about five minutes ago (sob), and poor Bradley Cooper is taking some serious heat for it.

A Star Is Born fans are convinced that the pair are secretly in love, despite the fact that Bradley has been dating Irina Shayk since 2016, and has a child with her.

 We're absolutely devastated for Gaga, but her fans have been bombarding Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk's Instagram accounts for some strange reason.

The speculation that the Shallow singers are in love has increased since they performed an emotional duet at her Las Vegas Enigma show.

Lady Gaga's rep confirmed her break-up to People, and another source told them;

"It just didn’t work out. Relationships sometimes end. There's no dramatic story." See? No. Dramatic. Story. Did the rumours stop there online? Hell no.

The fans beg to differ; "I seriously hope Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper are having an affair, not kidding," said one fan. Their chemistry in the award-winning film is palpable, but it's called ACTING, folks.

Fans have flooded Irina's Instagram with comments telling her to "let Bradley be with Lady Gaga", and "Stop letting Gaga near your man, it's embarrassing." Good lord… harsh much?

The memes, the comments, the MARRIAGE insinuations? We can't cope with the internet, stop the car we want to get out.

The two were in happy relationships when the movie came out and hit cinemas, yet fans assume their on-set acting is the reason for Gaga's break up MONTHS later.

"I have two words: Bradley. Cooper." We have two words: Internet. Cancelled.

We acknowledge that Bradley and Lady Gaga have a stunning relationship, but men and women can actually be just that; friends. Co-workers. Creative talents on the same set pretending to be lovers for a screen and entertainment purpose.

Please locate your chill people, and leave poor Irina Shayk out of this. Gaga has enough on her shoulders with a break-up, in private.

We just want them both to be happy…*weeps*
