Everyone in the galaxy is 100 percent aware that Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus are husband-and-wife GOALS.

Liam is unfortunately recovering from a nasty case of kidney stones, and was unable to attend the premiere of his new rom-com flick Isn't It Romantic alongside co-star Rebel Wilson.

Luckily his wife is unreal, and walked the red carpet on his behalf looking absolutely stunning in red.

Poor Liam has been absent from her side while recovering, he was recently hospitalised for the condition. Miley wrote a post on her Instagram explaining the red carpet move after he couldn't attend the Grammys;

"So proud of my hunky hubby Liam Hemsworth & his newest movie Isn't It Romantic. He unfortunately wasn’t able to attend due to health reasons… but he is recovering and taking this time to rest/heal. It’s hard for entertainers to put themselves before the project but this time it was crucial."

"I am proud to represent him and his incredible work. So happy to see him shining in this comedy! He is the funniest person I know, and the world now gets to see the Liam I wake up to every day…. luckiest."

Miley also wrote; "Getting sick blows. But so do I. Get well soon babe. I love you. Play that sax you sexy f*ck." Oh to be young and in love…


Sneezing, coughing and nose-blowing season has officially started and it is time to bring out the hand sanitiser to try and not catch your beloved friends/colleagues' germs. 

In order to keep the doctor away, an apple a day is a good start, but if you add certain foods to your diet, you could get a real immunity boost. 

And here are just five!

1. Citrus fruits

Essential for fighting infections, vitamin C stimulates the production of white blood cells. Unfortunately, your body cannot store it, so you need to make sure vitamin C is on the menu every day. 

While vitamin C tablets might come in handy, you can get your daily dose of ascorbic acid (the scientific name of the molecule) from oranges, grapefruits, lemons, limes or clementines. 

2. Kiwis

For the very same reason, kiwis are your friends during the winter. In fact, two kiwis contain enough vitamin C to cover your recommended daily dose of the immunity-boosting nutrient.

On top of that, kiwis are also a good source of vitamin K, copper and fibre.

3. Sweet potatoes

Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of vitamin A (a powerful antioxidant) and a mere cup of cooked sweet potatoes provides more than 200% of the recommended daily intake.

Antioxidants are essential for immune system support as they help your body fight off infection. Sweet potatoes are also a very good source of vitamin C, manganese, copper, pantothenic acid and vitamin B6. 

4. Broccoli

A real nutrition powerhouse, one cup of cooked broccoli is enough to cover your daily needs in vitamin K and vitamin C. It is also a very good source of chromium, folate, fibre, pantothenic acid and vitamin B6. 

To make sure you get the most of the benefits, steam them instead of boiling them as this aggressive cooking process destroys most of the vitamins.

5. Spinach

While we always love to learn about new superfoods, some of our cupboard/fridge staples can also claim the title. Take spinach for example; not only do they taste great as a salad base, they are also a true food hero. 

One cup of cooked spinach contains a tremendous amount of vitamin K, while it is also an good source of vitamin A, manganese, folate and magnesium, to name a few. Just like broccoli, the least you cook it, the better!


She was left devastated last month after having to cancel a gig in Arizona due to sickness, but Adele now has a plan to ensure that bad bugs will never defeat her again.

While most people might expect such a plot to involve regular trips to the doctor and a whole lot of Vitamin C, Adele has actually gone for a much more unique approach.

According to The Sun, the Hello singer has taken to quarantining her crew members in a bid to protect her own health for the rest of her world tour.

Apparently the star’s doctor has been instructed to run health checks on crew members, with those who pass being honoured with a special badge which proves they are fit and well, and those who don’t receiving no badge at all.

Adele then avoids speaking to any badgeless individuals in order to preserve her own health.

Is it crazy?  Maybe.  But is it genius?  Most definitely!

January is already grim enough without lamenting the terrible state of your love life/your health/your bank account.

This month, we give you full permission to wrap yourself in a duvet and take permanent residence on the couch with your new boyf, Netflix.

It'll keep you company, distract you from pesky winter colds and flu and just generally be an all-round good guy.

As for finding Mr. Right, you can worry about that in February.

1. When you're dying and can't form words, it will sit in silence with you


2. Need to lie on the couch without moving a muscle? Yup, that's okay too


3. Netflix will never wake you in the middle of the night by snoring


4. Like time with a good boyfriend, four hours with your new bae will pass without you even noticing


5. Your duvet days will ALWAYS feel productive, but you don't have to make conversation with anyone


6. Netflix wouldn't DARE suggest you "change out of the pyjamas you've been wearing for the last 72 hours" 


7. It doesn't nag you to get out of bed – you can stay in bed all day if you want to


8. It respects your life choices – even if those choices involve watching six episodes of Pretty Little Liars in a row


9. It'll NEVER make you watch Premier League when you really want to be watching House Of Cards

 If you're looking for some Netflix inspo, our duvet day faves have to be Clueless and Ferris Bueller's Day Off, both of which are available to stream now.

Plus, there's always the entire back catalogue of House of Cards, Pretty Little Liars, Orange Is The New Black and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt to keep you occupied…


We all know working is a pain in the bum but did you know it could actually be slowly killing you – yes, we are going for the dramatics here!

It’s ruining your eyesight
If you spend a good portion of your day looking at a computer screen it could leave you with computer-vision syndrome. If you are ending your day with headaches, dry eyes and blurred vision you need to get away from the computer every hour.

It’s causing you to be stressed
Work is definitely the worst culprit for bringing stress into your life. To combat it, try not to bring work home and if your workload is getting too heavy, say something.

It’s breaking your back
You know that pain in the lower part of your back? Well, you can blame it on your job. Whether you sit all day or stand you are bound to be causing your back some damage. To beat it, make sure you have correct posture and alternate between standing and sitting.

It spreads germs
With the increase in workload, less and less people staying at home even if they are sick. This means the person sitting in the corner coughing and sneezing over everything is just spreading their germs around – you might want to bring a hand sanitizer with you tomorrow.
