Little Mix have announced not one but TWO of their support acts for the highly-anticipated UK and Ireland tour; Mae Muller and New Rules.

The Bounce Back girlband will take to the stage at Dublin's 3Arena on October 8, 10 and 11 for three big shows, and we cannot WAIT for the female empowerment that's about to go off.

Mae Muller & New Rules will take to the stage before Little Mix in what promises to be an epic show. New Rules confirmed the news to their Instagram followers today.

Writing on their social media accounts, New Rules wrote; "Can’t really believe this but we’re gonna be joining Little Mix on tour in the UK and Ireland. So excited to be a part of this!"

Mae Muller also wrote on Twitter; "YOUR GIRL IS SUPPORTING LITTLE MIX ON THEIR UK TOUR! What is life?

"So excited and I am so grateful and I can’t wait to see you! 32 shows!" she told her fans. The talented rising singer is one of 2019's artists to watch since releasing her brand new single; Anti-Climax.

New Rules includes an Irish member, Ryan Meaney, who will representing the tricolour at the 3Arena when the band perform their biggest single Mountains.


We all remember our first time, whether it was on the couch or in an actual bed, whether it lasted hours or multiple nights in a row. 

Netflix binging, we mean of course.

Netflix has revealed which of it's iconic shows Irish people first binge watched, and has compiled a list of the top 20 most popular. 

According to the professionals over at Netflix, binge-watching can be defined as'completing at least one season of a show within 7 days of starting it.' 

For us, our first was Mad Men – which surprisingly didn't make the list (we love you Jon Hamm).

According to Netflix data, Breaking Bad was the most popular first binge on the streaming service in Ireland.

More than 90pc of Netflix members admitted to completing a first binge on the streaming site. 

Well, there's definitely a 100pc chance that we will be committing more of our time to binge watching in the future… 



1. Heartbreak High
This was like Home & Away for those whose parents wouldn't allow you to watch Home & Away – and Ada Nicmondeau was in it!


2. California Dreams
Now this one is sooo underrated, this show brought us from Mullingar to California in one intro…


3. Girls in Love
Short lived but it really opened are eyes to boys before we started our teen years.


4. Custer's Last Stand-Up
Back before George McMahon became Mondo and headed to Carrigstown, he was Custer and he did stand-up. 


5. Sweet Valley High
We didn't just watch the TV show – we also read ALL of the books (seriously, there's about fifty). 


6. Alex Mack
Alex Mack was like Sabrina's less popular but equally as magic little sister. 


7. Round The Twist
Remember the episode with the spaghetti-eating competition? Gross. 


8. Are you Afraid of the Dark?
The show that made us sleep outside our parents' bedroom door for days when we were 12. 


9. Taina
She never did get to see her name in lights did she? Poor Taina. 


10. Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Place
The show that first introduced us to the beeeeautiful Ryan Reynolds




The ProposalRTÉ 2, Wednesday at 9.30pm 
Even if you don’t watch The Rose Of Tralee (and seeing as it’s consistently one of the top rated telly shows clearly SOME of you are!), you can’t have missed the classic moment from last year when one Rose was proposed to live on stage. She must have said “no, no, no” a hundred times (and sure looked like she meant it) but as this doc shows the couple did actually end up marrying. God loves a trier.

Mrs DoubtfireSky 1, Wednesday at 7.30pm
While his performances in Dead Poets Society and Good Will Hunting can be considered Robin William’s finest, there are many of us who remember him most fondly for tonight’s midweek movie. Playing a divorced dad who dresses as an elderly Scottish nanny in order to keep seeing his kids might sound odd on paper but worked its magic on screen with the perfect balance of both laugh out loud and heart-warming moments that the late comedian did better than anyone.

I Love You ManRTÉ 2, Friday at 9.35pm
Newly engaged Paul Rudd realises he has no mates to be Best Man at his wedding. So in an effort to find one before the big day he strikes up a bromance with the likeable but slightly mental Paul Segel. A comedy that delivers some genuinely hilarious one liners, worth a watch.

The X FactorUTV, Friday at 9pm
No that’s not a typo, you read that right, X Factor is on Friday nights now too! But just before you start freaking you’ll never get off the couch again fear not, it’s only for this week and next before we go to the Live Shows. Starting tonight, this weekend sees a triple bill of Bootcamp which includes the brutal Six Chair Challenge – and if the booing on Sunday’s sneak peak was anything to go by Cheryl could well be getting another P45 in the post…




So this is the show everyone is talking about – it can’t be that good, right? Eh, where did the last three days go?

  1. You can’t remember life before it and don’t want to imagine life without it
  2. You attach yourself to other fans of the show – in the office, amongst friends and even strangers on the bus.
  3. You ring in sick to work after watching ‘just one more episode’ until 3am.
  4. You dream about your favourite characters when you finally do turn it off and sleep.
  5. You consider retraining in whatever it is the lead characters do. How hard can detective school be, really?
  6. You start to think of any other activity as obstacles between you and the show, including washing, eating and spending time with loved ones.
  7. Nobody is safe from your rants on the merits of and multiple meaning behind the show, and you’ll continue on regardless even when they start to back away from you slowly.
