Considering we need every ounce of energy to get though Monday, it's a cruel fact of life that our Sunday night sleep is often the most disturbed of the week.

Whether it's a case of tossing and turning all night or jolting awake at ungodly hours, the hours before the start of the working week is easily our least favourite.

However, if you think it comes down to little more than trepidation regarding the week ahead, you'd be wrong.

According to sleep experts, us humans are absolute martyrs to our Circadian Rhythm, so it's highly likely the reason you can't sleep on a Sunday night is because you threw your body clock out of whack over the weekend.

Sleep psychologist, Hope Bastine, elaborates on the point in ELLE, saying: "Over the weekend we have disrupted our usual, albeit unhealthy, sleep pattern. We've had a lovely lie in and repaid our workweek sleep debt and are now feeling well-revived"

"We're creatures of habit governed by our body clock, the Circadian Rhythm, and routine is the primary language of the brain. So when we change our usual habit, our brain feels out of sorts."

Hope says you can combat this by adhering to a more regular sleeping pattern over the weekend, and, most importantly, only go to a bed on a Sunday night when you are tired, and not because Monday morning has started looming.

Ditch the idea that you need an early night on Sunday, and instead listen to your body's needs in order to gt the best start to the week ahead.

'Enjoy those me-moments,' Hope suggests. 'Read that book you've been meaning to read, take a bath, or pamper yourself. Get your early night on Monday night instead!'


Many people have a love/hate relationship with scrambled eggs. 

You can either make them perfectly or fail miserably. And if you're the former, you probably boast about how good they are and use them as your go-to dish for when people are over.

But if, on the other hand, you're not so great at making scrambled eggs – then we have the perfect method for you. 

Delish found that adding in sour cream to your eggs makes for the tastiest egg dish EVER.

It estimates that one small spoon of sour cream (and a dash of salt and pepper) for every egg is all you need for the perfect Sunday brunch. 

"Scrambled eggs also have the tendency to be a little bland… It adds a very subtle depth of flavour: I'd say it's tangy, but it's almost more of a sweet sourness."

Race you to the kitchen? 


Poor Demi, she can't seem to catch a break.

In case the news hasn't hit you yet, the rapper 21 Savage is set to be deported from the US due to claims of his British nationality. HE was allegedly born on the British colony of Dominica.

His real name is Sha Yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, and he was arrested on Sunday morning by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) for reportedly overstaying his visa.

The Cool For The Summer singer has had to delete her Twitter after making a comment about the rapper's arrest and precarious situation.

The news of 21 Savage's possible deportation quickly spread online and became meme material. While Twitter was finding the whole thing hilarious, it stopped laughing the second Demi commented.

On Sunday night, she wrote to her Twitter; "So far 21 savage memes have been my favourite part of the Super Bowl."

Immediately, things went pretty dark for Demi. Offset appeared to subtweet her, saying; "ALL THE MEMES AND S–T AINT FUNNY WHEN SOMEBODY GOING THROUGH SOME," the Migos rapper wrote.


The 26-year-old singer tried defending and clarifying herself in later tweets, but social media users were already attacking her with suicide and drug-related references.

"If you're gonna come at me for making a joke, try coming at me with some original, not involving drugs," she wrote. "F–k Twitter. This is why I don't tweet anymore."

The meme she was referencing was of an old-fashioned feather quill, because of his apparent British ancestry.

Some of the tweets which targeted the singer were extreme, to say the least.

People got pretty vicious against her online, considering many of those who threw hateful vitriol her way were previously laughing at 21 Savage memes themselves, or even making them.

Demi took to her Instagram to defend herself;

"Wasn't laughing at anyone getting deported. I know that's not a joke…not have I EVER laughed at that," she penned.  "The meme I posted/was talking about was of him being writing with a feather pen. Sorry if I offended anyone."

She continued, "It's no excuse to laugh at someone's addiction, let alone their OD."

Yikes, things certainly escalated there, didn't they?

Dina LaPolt, 21 Savage's attorney, told E! News in a statement that they were;

"Working diligently to get Mr. Abraham-Joseph out of detention while we work with the authorities to clear up any misunderstandings."

If he is in fact British without a visa, it's a highly well-kept secret according to the internet.

LaPolt also stated that;

"Mr. Abraham-Joseph is a role model to the young people in this country, especially in Atlanta, Georgia, and is actively working in the community-leading programmes to help underprivileged youths in financial literacy."

However, ICE have other things to say.

The federal agency also provided E! News with a statement later in the day, saying that his arrest was a "targeted operation." It wrote; "He is unlawfully present in the U.S. and also a convicted felon. His whole public persona is false."

It's hard enough to raise a human, let alone add a love life into the mix.

But as her daughter, Sunday is now 14-months-old (just over a year to those of you who aren't familiar with baby speak), Ferne is ready to get back out there.

Eighteen months after her split from Arthur Collins, the 28-year-old is open to dating.

Opening up about her love life, she said that her daughter Sunday has always been her top "priority". 

"I've always thought that this comes first, or that comes first, and couldn't imagine how I would have fitted dating into my busy life."

"My priority is my daughter Sunday and I have to work to provide for her, but she's a year old now and life is moving on," she explained to The Sun Online.

You've no excuses though as it's tailored towards busy people – if Ferne can find time to train with a child, we can too.

We are THRILLED for Ferne and we hope she finds a rockin' fella.


Have the long-weekend festivities left you feeling drained already? Or are you aching after taking part in the Women’s Mini Marathon? If you’re in dire need of a lazy movie night then we’ve got good news for you. One of the best Irish movies is on TV tonight, so make sure you’re well stocked up on popcorn and wine.

This Irish drama is based on one of Maeve Binchy’s best books and is the perfect Sunday night movie.

TV3 are showing the brilliant Circle Of Friends at 10:05 pm tonight, and you just can’t miss it.

The drama is set in Dublin during the 1950s, where we meet Benny as she starts a new chapter of her life at university, along with her two friends- Nan and Eve.

The movie follows the girls as they try to adapt to their new lives in Dublin after growing up in the small Irish village Knockglen.

We see the trio grapple with their desire for love and their religious upbringings. Benny falls for Jack- the charming rugby player, but her friends aren’t as lucky.

Circle Of Friends stars Colin Firth, Minnie Driver, Saffron Burrows, Geraldine O'Rawe and Chris O'Donnell, with appearances from Aiden Gillen and Alan Cumming.

The heartwarming tale will certainly leave you feeling nostalgic (and no doubt, you'll be cringing at those awful Irish accents.)

Tune into Circle Of Friends on TV3 at 10:05 pm tonight.
