The world and it's mother are in LOVE with the ITV reality show winners Greg O'Shea and Amber Gill, yet the producers of Love Island aren't convinced that they'll last as a couple.

In previous years, ITV have rushed to make spin-off shows about the pairings and finalists, with popularity sky high, but this year things appear to be different.

According to The Sun, the producers are holding back as they fear the Islanders will split before the show is aired.

The ITV bosses were embarrassed last year, when Jack Fincham and Dani Dyer's on-and-off relationship was hitting the rocks before their short-lived ITV2 series was broadcast.

Jack & Dani: Life After Love Island didn't get anywhere near the same amount of viewers, and the same thing happened in 2017.

Third-placed finalists Chris Hughes and Olivia Attwood's series Chris & Olivia: Crackin' On, saw the pair have an explosive break-up at the end of the three-part show.

Amber Gill and Greg O'Shea were surprise winners of the £50,000 prize this year, after Greg had only been in the villa for 12 days.

They've only just confirmed vaguely that they're in an official relationship and still have a distance between them as Amber lives in Newcastle and Greg resides in Dublin.

Bosses don't feel it would be a wise choice to let cameras follow them around just yet.

A source said: “It’s been a publicity disaster in previous years, when couples split before their show aired or appeared to get back together just as the programmes came out."

The insider added; “Jack and Dani’s series was a perfect example last year, with everyone saying their relationship was fake.

“This year bosses want to take the heat off the contestants’ relationships, especially as it’s been such a choppy year for couples making a go of it. Instead they are focusing on winter Love Island and want to nail the casting for that series."

They continued; “Of course, they’re keeping a close eye on their couples to spot any potential for spin-off shows, but at the moment it’s certainly not looking likely.”

Most couples barely even make it to three months, and Greg and Amber have been predicted to last just 69 days by data analysts Watches2You.

Let's get real for a second; Arya Stark is the Game of Thrones GOAT. No doubt about it. So why shouldn't we expect to be given more badass ninja assassin content from HBO, considering she's a fan fave?

In the series finale, which divided critics and fans alike, Arya told her family that she wouldn't be returning to Winterfell. Instead, she decides to go off the maps, to discover what's "west of Westeros". 

"Nobody knows," she ponders. "That's where all the maps stop. That's where I'm going." Maisie Williams has played the role for a decade, but HBO bosses have since shut down our hopes for a spin-off.

The final shots of the baby Stark sis shows Arya boarding a ship, looking very much in charge. HBO programming president Casey Bloys dashed everyone's hopes in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, and we may cry.

When asked about everyone's favourite ninja getting her very own show, Bloys said;

"Nope, nope, nope. No. Part of it is, I do want this show- this Game of Thrones, Dan and David's show- to be its own thing. I don't want to take characters from this world that they did beautifully and put them off into another world with someone else creating it.

"I want to let it be the artistic piece they've got."

With three Game of Thrones prequel projects in the works at HBO, this isn't the last we'll be seeing of author George RR Martin's humongous literary world.

"That's one of reasons why I'm not trying to do the same show over," Bloys added.

"George has massive, massive world; there are so many ways in. That's why we're trying to do things that feel distinct- and to not try and re-do the same show. That's probably one of the reasons why, right now, a sequel or picking up any of the other characters doesn't make sense for us."

We see his point, but can't forgive him for depriving us of more iconic scenes surrounding the assassin.

From her butchering of Walder Frey, stabbing the Night King and banter with the Hound to her Many Faced God training and ruthless attitude; her character has become a cultural icon.

Maise Williams spoke to ET ahead of season eight, and opened up about saying goodbye to the show, where she began working at age 12.

"It was just really emotional. You can start to get yourself so down on everything, being like, 'This is the last time I'm gonna read scripts. This is the last time I'm going to be in this location.' I got to a point where I had to stop doing that, because then I was just going to have a nervous breakdown."

The 22-year-old actress explained that she found herself "putting off" her last scene, where she sails into a new world.

"I watched so many people wrap and cry. I had to like, stay out of that emotion because there was so much to do- like, some really difficult scenes to do. And then I wrapped and I was emotional," she recalled. "I really did feel numb."

"That's when my numbness came, and then it wasn't until like a week later that I was like- you know when you’re just doing something and then you drop a spoon? I was like , 'Ahhhhhhh!' like, overreacting entirely and I just felt like an insane person a little bit," she added. 

Understandable, seeing as her entire adolescence was spent on a huge set playing a teenaged murderer seeking vengeance for her father's death and family's demise. SOB.

Let's watch some of Arya's most badass moments below to reminisce on her legendary nature, while trying not to cry:

Pretty Little Liars may have ended almost a year ago, but the saga looks set to continue after Freeform confirmed there's a spin-off series in the works. 

Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionist has been picked up for a 10-episode series and is set to feature some familiar faces. 

The new series will see both Sasha Pieterse and Janel Parrish reprise their roles as Alison and Mona. 

Also starring in the highly anticipated spin-off is Sofia Carson (Disney’s Descendants), Sydney Park (The Walking Dead), newcomer Eli Brown, Graeme Thomas King (The Widow), Kelly Rutherford (Gossip Girl), and Hayley Erin (General Hospital).

The Perfectionist is set Beacon Heights – a seemingly perfect suburban town where a group of college students struggle with their 'overachiever' status. 

When news of the town's first ever murder comes to the forefront, viewers discover that each Perfectionist hides “a secret, a lie, and an alibi.”

While no official release date has been set, Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionist is set to debut sometime in 2019. 

Until then we'll be binge-watching PLL in preparation! 


When we heard that Life of Kylie was going to be an actual thing, we instantly wondered if model sis Kendall would ever do her own show. 

We can see it now – behind the scenes at Paris Fashion Week, hobnobbing with Gigi and Bella, and generally living the jet set model life. 

However, momager Kris put a swift end to our dreams in a recent Variety interview. 


A post shared by Kendall (@kendalljenner) on

'No,' she replied straight up when asked if Kendall was planning a show of her own. 

'Kendall is really satisfied on her role in KUWTK.'

'With her modelling career she's so busy,' Kris continued.


A post shared by Kendall (@kendalljenner) on

'If she's not walking a runway, she's shooting a campaign or travelling around the world with her fashion obligations.'

'She's a pretty busy little girl.'

Maybe the sisters could have a joint spin-off, much like Khloe and Kourtney.

Kylie and Kendall take Calabasas perhaps? 


Could this finally be the Friends reunion we've all been waiting on?

According to the latest claims, Lisa Kudrow and Friends co-creator Martha Kuffman are in "serious talks" about a Phoebe Buffay spin-off, and we couldn't be more delighted.

InTouch reports that the pair are keen to shoot a spin-off series and have even been discussing plot lines for the show.

Lisa and Martha are currently working on Netflix series, Grace and Frankie, together, so these "serious talks" could be more than just rumours.

An insider close to the pair said that Phoebe "would probably be divorced now and living back in NYC."

The source also teased a Friends reunion as "it's only natural that she would occasionally bump into her old Central Perk gang.

"It would be an epic TV moment. If there’s anyone that can make that happen, it’s Lisa," added the source.

It has been no secret that fans of Friends want the show back on air, but this could be just the thing we need to fill the void in our hearts.



It looks like Kylie Jenner is going to star in her own reality TV show.

According to Radar Online, the 19-year-old will follow in the footsteps of her older sisters with a Keeping Up With The Kardashians spin off.


A post shared by Kylie (@kyliejenner) on

The publication claims that it will be based on Kylie's beauty empire – what she does behind-the-scenes, as well as appointing her team of employees.

An insider close to the beauty guru said: "[Kylie] just wants to have a show on E! that is all about her, that will focus mainly on her journey of building her own empire.


A post shared by Kylie (@kyliejenner) on

"It’s going to be all about building her business, and hiring people for her team."

With Kylie's various business ventures including Kylie Cosmetics and The Kylie Shop, we'll be interested to see how she goes about her day-to-day business.



Can you believe it's been two years since the final episode of How I Met Your Mother aired?

To be honest, we were all a tad disappointed with the ending and many thought it was confusing and some parts, just unnecessary.

However, when talks of a spin-off began during the year, it's safe to say everyone got very excited.

But, we might be let down yet again folks, because the spin-off seems to have nothing to do with the actual show.

Image result for how i met your mother gif

According to the Hollywood Reporter, it'll go down the female route of How I Met Your Father, but it'll have absolutely nothing to do with the original series.

Along with new writers, there will be a whole new set of characters, and obviously a new storyline. In 2014, a show called How I Met Your Dad got to pilot stage, but was ultimately dropped by producers.

Tad disappointed? Yes. Are we still going to watch it? Absolutely.


When you look back on Sex and the City, a lot of questions need to be asked.

For example, how did Carrie afford that NYC apartment with only a weekly/monthly sex column? How did she afford all of those shoes as well?! And how on earth did Kim Cattrall not get her own show?!

After all was said and done with SATC, Kim's character Samantha totally came out on top. Compared to Carrie, Samantha was ahead of her career game, didn't take sh*t from anybody (including guys) and was just an all-round badass.

yes sex and the city agreed yeah agree

So, you can only imagine how excited we were to hear that Kim is in talks to have a SATC spin-off.

Throughout the years there has been numerous rumours of another series, and indeed another movie, but they went away as fast as they came.

However, this time around, Kim gave a little hint on Twitter that this spin-off might actually happen.

After US talk show host, Wendy Williams posted a video on Twitter stating that "reportedly Kim Cattrall is in talks with HBO to reprise her role as Samantha Jones," Kim saw and simply tweeted, "Finger's x'd."

2018 will mark the 20th anniversary of the show, so hopefully this will all work out. Our fingers are definitely crossed.

If you were a Disney Channel kid, then you'll remember That's So Raven and her science-defying abilities.

It's nearly been ten years since the show has gone off air, but in an announcement made today, it looks like the show is getting a reboot.

And of course Raven Symoné will be the star!

Yep, Raven is coming back to play the role she did so many years ago, but this time she's a divorced mother of two kids and one of them has inherited her seeing-into-the-future gene.

Image result for that's so raven gif

Disney Channel's vice president Adam Bonnet said of the news: "Her performance in That's So Raven is timeless. We now have our eyes on the future with her, and we're looking forward to telling more stories for a new generation with an adult Raven Baxter raising her young family."

Raven was also named as an executive producer of the new series.


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.



The season 7 premiere of Pretty Little Liars aired last night, and even though we found out who 'A' was in the last series, it still feels like the story is never-ending.

And that may indeed be the case since all of the cast and crew want to keep it going – in a movie or a spin-off.

The cast are totally on board for ending PLL with a movie, but more interesting is the TV show ideas.

"My god, it would be a blast!" said Troian Bellisario, who plays Spencer. "We would shoot in Italy and London… She'd be travelling constantly. She'd be time travelling to the past, and it's an amazing show… I just described, like, Outlander… The Spencer show, it's a mixture of Girls and Outlander."

We like the sound of that! But, Shay Mitchell has another idea if Emily could get her own show. And she describes it as a lesbian Bachelorette

However, Aria got very excited when met with the idea of her own series.

"I think there's so many areas of Aria that haven't been explored. She went away to Iceland before the show even started, so like, why was she there?" said Lucy Hale.

"I love Aria, she's become a huge part of me, so I keep an open mind."

It seems like the Liars will live on, even after PLL.



We've been waiting and waiting, and now it seems like it may finally be here!

A glimpse of Breaking Bad spin-off, Better Call Saul, has been released, and it looks good. 

Though it's not long, the teaser was tucked neatly into a Breaking Bad marathon on AMC recently – but they didn't fool us! Or at least, they didn't fool the person who recorded it…!

Are you going to catch up with Saul in this highly anticipated spin-off?
