The BBC has finally confirmed when The Graham Norton Show will be returning to our screens, and it's sooner than you might think.

We've been lost without our weekly dose of the Cork native's dry wit and white wine, as well as his illustrious guests and endless red chair banter. 

The BAFTA and TV Choice Award-winning chat show will be back for a new series (number 26) on Friday, September 27 on BBC One at 10:35pm.

Joining Graham on the red couch will be Oscar-winning actress Dame Helen Mirren, who will promote her new TV drama Catherine the Great; comedian and actor Jack Whitehall; documentary maker Simon Reeve; and the legendary RuPaul.

The iconic drag queen will be bringing his hit show RuPaul's Drag Race UK to the BBC on October 3, which should prove an instant hit judging by how incredibly successful the US version has been.

The music of the evening will be provided by former Fifth Harmony bandmember NORMANI, who will perform her new single Motivation.

The Graham Norton Show has been on air for over 10 years, if you can believe how fast that time went.

Some of the most hilarious and memorable TV moments and interviews in chat show history have taken place on the host's fluffy red couch. 

Irish comedian and Eurovision presenter Graham has been on his summer holidays, and deserves the break, but the show will run from September until February this year and then from April until June.

While we wait for September 27, let's enjoy some of last season's funniest moments and put our feet up;

Well, well, well; those snakes have officially been BANISHED. That's right…Taylor Swift is back with a phantasmagorial bang.

Her new pastel-themed tune is called ME! and it's a beauty, as well as featuring the great Brendan Urie from Panic! At The Disco. 

Rumours are flying that ME! was supposed to actually precede Reputation, but when sh*t went down with the media regarding the Kardashians and Kanye West, she decided to show her dark side first.

Our pal Taylor has been dropping hints for weeks about her latest musical endeavour, and the pastel colours hint at a return to her 1989 roots. 

Fresh from her Time100 success, Swift's return show's yet another streak for mastering her personal marketing brand. 

The video is adorable, and features a Parisian aesthetic with the pop star even speaking French at one point. Très bien henny. There's also a nod to Mary Poppins in there too, randomly.

The gal loves Easter eggs, and there's plenty of hidden meanings in the Dave Meyers-directed video.

One thing's for sure…TS7 is going to be MAJOR.

Here are Twitter's most outrageous reactions to TayTay's new music video:

1. Fans have been #attacked.

2. Brendan Urie in suspenders

3. Spread the rainbow

4. This detective discovered a possible feature from the album;

5. Is she ENGAGED? Also we adore her kitty's cameos.

6. Her kitty fam possibly  just expanded

7. She has resurrected from the dead:

8. She's certainly changed her colour palette…

9. Reputation was dropping hints left, right and centre b*tches!

10. Swifties are incapable of remaining calm:

11. Is Taylor supporting Brie Larson's Unicorn Store?

12. She damn switched the light on:

13. Applicable to group projects, we think:

14. Her fans would die for her, but Instagram ain't having ih…

15. The feels are a little strong, to say the least:

At the moment, Taylor is currently on track to break the record for fastest music video to reach 100 million views on YouTube, after Ariana Grande's Thank U, Next and BTS' Boy With Luv.

It's surpassed 13 million views in just three hours, which is phenomenal.

Without further ado, here's Taylor's new video. Indulge in it, if you haven't already seen it. If you've already seen it, watch it again. It's worth it.

Calling all X-Factor fans!

Cheryl Tweedy is officially returning to the judging panel in the upcoming season of the now iconic talent show. 

At least for the judges houses section of the competition anyway, according to a new photo released today. 


A post shared by Cheryl (@cherylofficial) on

In the snap, Cheryl can be spotted posing with head judge Simon Cowell at his mansion in southern France. 

'Simon is ecstatic at getting Cheryl back working with him again,' a source previously told the Mail On Sunday.

'They’ve had their ups and downs to say the least but he hugely respects her opinion.'


A post shared by ChezzaBearPayne (@chezzabearpayne) on

'He has been working on it for a while,' they continued. 

'He and Cheryl have been talking a lot over the last months…'

Cheryl first appeared on the panel back in 2008.


Long before MTV began devoting an inordinate amount of time to reality TV shows and the stars born of them, they were pretty interested in showcasing the talents of, you know, bands, singers and musicians.

One of the finest examples of this was MTV Unplugged – a much-loved show which allowed bands and artists to scale back their performances in order to give viewers an alternative perspective on their sound.

From Nirvana and Pearl Jam to Mariah Carey and Jay Z, some of the biggest names in music over the last 30 years have taken part in the series, and yet the network decided to suspend the series… until now.

That's right ladies, it's time to go retro.

According to emerging reports, the show will hit the small screen again next month, and 19-year-old Shawn Mendes will be the face of its return.

Word has yet to land as to the names which will follow in Shawn's footsteps, but we're feeling very hopeful here at SHEmazing HQ.

Ladies, this is one throwback we're fully supporting, and if you're with us you can check out Shawn's performance on September 8.



With the return of Gilmore Girls making serious waves both here and across the pond, it's no surprise that certain other shows are starting to wonder whether it might be worth cashing in on the revival trend right now.

And Scrubs is one of them.

While doing a Q&A session on Twitter recently, Zach Braff, who played JD in the popular hospital comedy, revealed that he and his former cast mates often discuss reprising their roles.

"You never know about making more Scrubs episodes," he said of the show which began way back in 2001.

"It's something we all talk about, especially now that all these people are going back and doing, like, Netflix versions of their shows. I'm very jealous of all this Gilmore Girls attention, and Full House," he admitted.

In a move which is set to delight fans of JD, Turk, Carla and Elliott, Zach added: "So, we talk about it every now and then, so you never know. It could happen. I'd do it."

Hear that, ladies? He'd do it.



It looks like Fatboy is set to have an explosive return to Eastenders… even though he's already dead in the soap.

The character, played by Ricky Norwood, was killed off last Christmas under very dodgy circumstances, however, his body was never seen and the police never confirmed his death.

Now, this means the writers could easily play the card that his death was a hoax.

Ricky spoke to Inside Soap recently and said: "There are still petitions going on! I get told, 'we want Fats back' on a daily basis, whether it's a message on Twitter or somebody I meet in the street.

"To have had that impact on the nation, with a character who was supposed to be on Eastenders for three months, was amazing."

He went on to say that he can see himself coming back onto the show after a year away, and the return might just include everyone's favourite, Dot.

"It might be a bit much for her if she ever found out the truth. Dot saw Fats as pure and almost incorruptible, which is why she didn't want him messing about in too many dodgy things.

"His death would really hurt her, but storyline-wise it might be fun if she went on a secret rampage for Fats, messing up Vincent in one way or another."

Oooh, this could be a very interesting return!


It's been confirmed that Helen Flanagan is returning to Coronation Street.

It's been five years since Rosie Webster left Weatherfield and we're sure she's going to come back with a bang.

The actress is set to begin filming at the end of the year.

Speaking to The Mirror, the 26-year-old said: “I'm so excited to be returning to Coronation Street and being part of the Webster family again.”

Coronation Street Producer Kate Oates said: “The Websters have missed Rosie and so have we. With Sophie away on holiday with her sister it seemed like the ideal time to bring Rosie back home with her for a visit.

"We are delighted that Helen is as keen explore what Rosie has been up to away from the cobbles as we are.”

Helen will appear back on our screens in February 2017.


Back in June, Kim Cattrall had everyone in a tizzy when she hinted that a third Sex and the City movie could be on the cards.

And now, Sarah Jessica Parker – aka Miss Carrie Bradshaw – has furthered that suggestion by saying there is a “possibility” that SATC will return.

While it is not yet clear whether the show’s long-awaited comeback would take the form of a seventh season or another big screen instalment, the 51-year-old actress told the Press Association that she and her co-stars have not ruled out furthering the adventures of Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda.

The Hocus Pocus star said: “I don't think any of us have said no.  I don't know whether it's a series or the movie.”

“I think that remains an open question and discussion that will continue until it's been resolved.”

“I think [a comeback is] always a possibility, definitely.”

We have everything crossed that this “possibility” becomes a reality.




Amanda Bynes has made her social media return.

The former actress has been offline for six months now, but last night took to Twitter to keep her fans updated on what she's been doing.

Amanda is currently studying fashion in the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in LA, and it seems like it's going really well for her.

However, while sharing what she was up to last night, she also went on a tiny rant about an imposter trying to pose as her on social media.

It's good to see she's doing well!


Top Gear is going down a steep, steep hill.

It was an adjustment when Chris Evans and Matt LeBlanc took on the face of Top Gear, however, the public didn't take too well to Chris, and he bowed out of the show.

When Matt graced our screens this year, everyone fell in love with his cheeky ways, but now he's after admitting that he's "not sure" about coming back for another series.

While speaking at a Television Critics Association press tour, the former Friends star said: “I’m not sure what’s happening with Top Gear just yet, but this is my priority,” he said referring to his new US TV show, Man With a Plan.

“I don’t know. I’d like to. There’ nothing officially happening just yet – call the BBC,” he added.

That doesn't sound too good to us!


Dermot O'Leary must be feeling pretty chuffed with himself today as the TV presenter has reportedly signed an £8million contract which will see him host the X Factor for the next four years.

And that's not all – according to The Sun, the new deal will not prevent the British-born broadcaster from working on other projects while signed with the hit show so Dermot will be able to top-up his lucrative pay package whenever he feels the need to do so.

The 43-year-old host lost his spot on the hit talent show last year when he was rather unsuccessfully replaced by Olly Murs and Caroline Flack, but the break seems to have benefited Dermot in a big way as not only will he take back his position as the show’s host, he is also about to become the highest-paid solo presenter on British television.

An insider told The Sun:  “This is the comeback of all comebacks for Dermot.”

“Just one year after Cowell axed him, he’s signing the contract of a lifetime.”

“Simon may have had questions about Dermot’s commitment before but he soon realised he’d made a mistake."

“Even a couple of weeks into the live shows last year, enquires were being made about bringing Dermot back.”

“He had to think long and hard about it because he was loving working on a wide range of projects, including TV series for the BBC, documentaries and his Radio 2 show.”

“But at the end of the day he loves X Factor and he was pretty much able to name his price – it was too good an opportunity to walk away from.”

The X Factor will be back on screens next month with Dermot as host and Simon Cowell, Nicole Scherzinger, Louis Walsh and Sharon Osbourne as judges.
