it looks like Joe Swash is about to get his skates on after Dancing On Ice teased the cast of 2020’s series.

The show posted a photo of Joe’s jacket with a gold star placed inside the pocket.

The image was captioned, “We've got stars in our eyes over this celeb… Or in our jacket pockets? #DancingOnIce”

Fans were quick to identify the former EastEnders actor in the snap.

According to The Sun, Joe is eager to take on a new challenge after leaving I’m A Celebrity earlier this year.

A source said, “Joe's currently talking to Dancing On Ice bosses. It's no secret ITV love him and are keen to see him on the ice.

"He's looking for a new challenge after I'm A Celeb and he's sure to prove popular with viewers,” they added.

Joe decided to leave his presenting role on the popular show after partner Stacey gave birth to their baby boy Rex.

"I just couldn't be away from Rex for three months. I love the job. Honestly, it's like a part of me. I come out of EastEnders, and it's very difficult to be an actor coming out of it, and the jungle sort of opened up a whole world of opportunities with presenting and stuff like that.

"I owe the jungle everything and I'm so happy and pleased that the jungle stood by me for so long. But it will go on and it'll be amazing, it'll be really weird to watch it in England. I haven't spent a November in England for nearly 11 years. So it's going to be weird, but it'll be so nice to be around the family,” he explained.

Other rumoured celebrities include Love Island’s Amber Gill, Michelle Heaton and TV personality Michael Barrymore.


Grey’s Anatomy hasn’t been the same since Patrick Dempsey’s departure in 2015. Bidding farewell to McDreamy was one of the show’s most heartbreaking storylines but just because Derek isn’t around anymore doesn’t mean we’ve seen the last of the Shepherd family.

Amelia Shepherd quickly became a fan favourite when actress Catherine Scorsone joined the show as a main cast member in season 11.

She quickly took over her brother’s department and made a name for herself as quite the kick-ass neurosurgeon.

However, Amelia isn’t the only gifted sister in the Shepherd family. We are set to meet another one of Derek’s sisters in the coming episodes.

Actress Amy Acker has been cast as McDreamy’s sister Kathleen. Just like her siblings, Kathleen is a gifted doctor, specialising in psychiatry.

It is understood that Amy Acker will make her Grey’s Anatomy debut in an episode that focuses on Amelia.

Fans know very little about Derek’s sister Kathleen other than the fact that she is married with children.

Speaking to TV Line about the episode where we will meet Amelia’s sister, actress Catherine Scorsone said: “It's definitely a little standalone. It's almost like a little movie on its own."

There’s no doubt the episode will be full of drama considering everything Amelia has been going through in the latest series.

The doctor has had to deal with Owen having a baby with Teddy, Betty/Brittany’s addiction and the risk of Leo being taken away from her and Owen.

We cannot wait for Amy Acker to join the show. The Gifted actress will be the most incredible addition to the show.


Vogue Williams and Spencer Matthews have been working on a very exciting project and we are thrilled for the lovebirds.

Presenter Vogue confirmed that they will be releasing their very own TV show in 2019.

The DJ shared a promo photo from their show on Instagram earlier today: “Very excited to let you all know that @spencermatthews and I have been working on our own show!”

Vogue revealed that the show will be titled Spencer and Vogue Adult(ish).

The series will air on E4 in the coming months. Vogue stated that it will hit our TV screens early next year.

Spencer is no stranger to the TV world. The dad starred on popular reality series Made In Chelsea for many years before leaving to focus on his life with Vogue.

“It’s been so much fun filming, we can’t wait for you to watch,” she gushed.

The show will follow the couple’s new life as parents and we can’t wait to see how their lives have changed since welcoming their son Theodore.

Vogue gave birth to their baby boy on September 5, 2018.


A post shared by voguewilliams (@voguewilliams) on

They confirmed their son’s arrival by sharing the cutest photos on their individual Instagram accounts and have been keeping fans up to date ever since.

Fans certainly adore seeing Vogue and Spencer’s family photos so there is no doubt their show will be a huge hit.

Will you tune into Spencer and Vogue Adult(ish) in the new year?


We have been itching for I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here to return for so long. It feels like forever since we last watched celebrities dine on creepy crawlies and face stomach-churning challenges that always sent shivers down our spines.

ITV has finally confirmed when the show is returning to our screens and you don’t have much longer to wait.

Fans of the show can say g’day to Dec, new host Holly Willoughby and this year’s celebrity line-up on Sunday, November 18.

The first episode of the new season will air at 9 pm on ITV so make sure to mark it in your diaries.

ITV tweeted about the return of the popular reality show: “You’ve got a hot date… with some creepy crawlies. #ImACeleb is back. Starts Sunday 18th November live on @ITV @ImACelebrity.”

The official line-up has yet to be confirmed but rumour has it we will be seeing plenty of familiar faces in the jungle this year.

Made In Chelsea alum Jamie Laing is reportedly heading to Oz, as well as former X Factor star Fleur East.

Anne Hegerty of The Chase, Harry Redknapp and Strictly Come Dancing’s Katya Jones have also been tipped to joining the cast of 2018.

Other potential contestants include Danny Dyer, Conor McGregor and Coleen Nolan, but you’re just going to have to wait until the official line-up is revealed to meet this year’s contestants.

I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here returns to ITV on Sunday, November 18, 2018. Let the countdown begin.


It has been confirmed that Holly Willoughby will co-host the upcoming season of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here.

The This Morning presenter replaces Ant McPartlin who has stepped away from the spotlight due to personal issues.

Speaking of her new role, Holly told The Mirror: “I couldn’t be more excited to have been asked to stand alongside Dec for the next jungle adventure.”

Holly has been friends with both Ant and Dec for many years, with the presenters making their break in the entertainment industry around the same time.

The presenter sent her well wishes to Ant who is currently dealing with alcohol and personal issues.

"I love Ant and want to send him my best wishes and support for a continued recovery. These are big shoes, not to fill, but just to keep warm for a little bit,” she said.

The host gushed about the reality show, admitting that she is a huge fan. “I feel like I’ve won a competition to go and hang out on my favourite show! When is it a good time to tell Dec I’m scared of everything that moves."

Holly’s co-host Declan Donnelly said: “I am hugely grateful to Holly for agreeing to accompany me to Australia this year. She was at the top of my list and I’m thrilled she said yes. It will be a different kind of series but we will try our best to ensure it is no less fun and eventful for our loyal viewers.”

We cannot wait to see Holly present the show alongside Declan Donnelly. There’s no doubt she’ll do a stellar job.


If you thought that the season 7 finale of Pretty Little Liars would be the last time a simple text message would scare the living daylights out of you then think again! Pretty Little Liars showrunner Marlene King hinted at the possibility of a PLL film.

"We’ve got some really big ideas for a great PLL movie, but that won’t happen right after the series ends," King said during an interview with Good Morning America

"I think we’ll take a little break and let everybody go off and do a few things and hopefully we’ll come back together again and do something really special.”

She didn’t didn't reveal anything major about what a movie would entail or where the Liars would be. Might we suggest at least relocating from Rosewood? Seriously, there has been enough chaos in that town for one generation. 

ABC Family recently renewed Pretty Little Liars for a seventh season. Actress Troian Bellisario, who plays Spencer Hastings, said previously that season 7 would be the last for the series. Marlene has also hinted that we're still in store for some "final twists." Fantastic, just when we starting to sleeping peacefully. 

If there is a film on the cards then we highly doubt that the series is going to end without leaving some serious cliff hangers. Who knows, maybe Marlene has heard her fans sobbing in the dark and has decided to give the group of intoxicated moms in the basement a film for themselves.

Not that we would be complaining about that, to be honest.


Game of Thrones fans you can rest a little bit easier with this news.

Contrary to the rumours that began circulating not too long ago, fan-favourite (dare we say it: possible Queen in the North) Sophie Turner is not going anywhere. 

The actress, who plays Sansa Stark was reportedly being poached from the HBO series to star in Outlander.

The time-travel fantasy romance is a huge hit with fans across the pond and many were speculating she would abandon Westeros in favour of series adapted from Diana Gabaldon’s books.

EW caught up with the actress to settle the rumours once and for all, and many avid TV fans were getting nervous at her silence on the matter. 

“Somebody mentioned [the role] to me when I was on a red carpet somewhere, that I’d make a great Brianna, and I think the guy Sam retweeted it or something,” she explained.

“So people started talking like I was in it. I’ve never seen the show. I’m sure it’s great, but I’m loyal to my one true love!” 


Contractually, series regular actors (such as Sophie) are simply not allowed to take a job that could possibly undermine the series to which they are already attached. So it would have been a slim possibility of Sophie leaving GoT

However, as everyone who loves the series knows, the powers that be at HBO like to keep fans on edge when it comes to which characters will be coming back- ahem, looking at you Jon Snow.

Meanwhile, there has been one GoT actor lined up for a role on Outlander

Clive Russell will be joining the cast for the second series according to the Outlander Facebook page.  He appeared on Season 3 of GoT as Brynden ‘The Blackfish’ Tully. Interestingly, his GoT character is actually related to a current Outlander series regular.

Tobias Menzies (Edmure Tully, also suspiciously absent since Season 3) currently stars in the series and it looks like two will be sharing the screen again. 


The original blonde bombshell, and the only who matters according to George Hook, is going to be strutting her stuff in the capital this weekend.

We reckon that the trademark red swimsuit may be left back in Malibu once Pamela Anderson realises that our weather is having a bit of a moment. Probably best to not have it get too wet before she auctions the piece off in order to raise funds for her chairty The Pamela Anderson Foundation.

The Hollywood actress is going to be making an appearance on The Ray D’Arcy Show on Saturday night to share some insight into her life and career to date. We’re hoping she may take the time to shed some light on what it was like working with Kanye himself way back when. 

Another topic that Pammy is sure to mention will be the recent announcement that she has been cured of Hepatitis C. 

The 48-year old broke the news in a rather spectacular style that really only she could pull off.

She shared a picture of herself completely nude having quite the giggle on a yacht with the caption:

"I am CURED!!! – I just found out #nomorehepc #thankyou #blessing #family #prayer #live I pray anyone living with Hep C can qualify or afford treatment. It will be more available soon. I know treatment is hard to get still…" 

For the last 16 years the actress has suffered from the disease. In recent times she had spoken about her desire to find a cure and her hopes that a new drug would be the answer.

She told People magazine: “I'm very fortunate that I've had Hep C for about 16 years. Sixteen years ago that was [presented to me] as a death sentence. I think it really worked on my self-esteem.” 

She added that she is lucky she was able to get the treatment she needed that meant she avoided liver damage and many other side effects of the disease.

The former Baywatch star revealed in 2002 that she had contracted Hep C after sharing a needle with ex-husband Tommy Lee. He however denies that he ever had Hep C. 


Well, somebody better tell the Marcia Brady of the Upper East Side that she needs to get it together because it is time for her glorious return.

Yes, Cruel Intentions is making a major comeback. The NBC network are reportedly going to reboot the much-loved 1999 film and create a follow-up series. 

Variety reports that series is supposed to follow Bash Casey, the 16-year old son of Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe’s characters.

"Upon finding his late father’s journal, Bash learns of the family legacy he didn’t know existed.” 

“In search of answers, he trades his small-town Kansas upbringing for a scholarship to the prestigious Brighton Preparatory Academy in San Francisco and soon finds himself in a world of sex, money, power, and corruption he never could have imagined.” 

Sound similar to another TV series that fans absolutely loved? Yup, we’re getting some Gossip Girl vibes to be honest. Which could be fantastic.

The same team who were behind the Cruel Intentions Musical, Jordan Ross and Lindsey Rosin are writing and producing the series. 

The musical was a hit, especially after social media went into meltdown when Reese, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Selma Blair reunited at a performance.

We look forward to seeing how the TV revival of one of our favourite films will shape up. In the meantime, let us take a trip down memory lane:


Last night, the news arrived that RTÉ are revamping the Angelus.

Instead of the staring into space we have become so used to after fifty years, we are going to be introduced to a series of one minute broadcasts before the Six One news.

Some of the stars of the new Angelus include a baker, a sculptor, and a book binder and restorer from Athlone.

So, gone be with the days of someone in an Aran jumper watching a candle flicker in silence. Perhaps they might give this aspiring musician a second chance.

Spin 1038 asked their Fully Charged listeners to tweet their suggestions for what should feature in the new and improved Angelus. The suggestions were hilarious and #StickItInTheAngelus has been trending for most of the day.

These are just some of the best:

1. The most timely suggestion:

2. Lest we forget:

3. An Irish institution:

4. A great moment in history:

RTE Ice Tumblr

5. Or any of the many instances when Irish horses thought they were people:

6. The glory days of the quiff:

7. The unspoken favourite hobby:

RTÉ Genre Head of Religious Programmes, Roger Childs, said:

“We are delighted to announce the six newly-commissioned films and The People’s Angelus slot on Fridays and hope that the Angelus will continue to afford people of all faiths and none some quiet space in a hectic day-to-day world.” 


Maroon 5's Sugar music video was a huge hit with fans everywhere.

The video, in which the band crashed real life couple’s weddings with surprise performances pretty much melted hearts everywhere.

It also impressed NBC so much that the US network is turning it into a television series. 

The David Dobkin-directed video, which rounded up almost a billion YouTube views, featured the group surprising brides with a serenade at their weddings.

The director will stay on board to direct NBC's Untitled Adam Levine Show spin-off, with Adam stepping in as a producer. 

Each potential episode is going to feature a different celebrity surprising a fan at a significant life event.

Where do we sign up? Surely Beyoncé should be on hand the next time we successfully visit the ATM and see that coveted comma in our bank account?

Or maybe Ed Sheeran could be there to serenade us the next time we make it through our morning commute successfully before we’ve even had our first cup of coffee.

NBC described the series, saying:

"A couple about to get married suddenly discovers that a world famous recording artist is leading the house band. An Emmy Award-winning actor becomes an unexpected guest of a bachelorette party. 

Working with a team of improv experts who create the element of surprise, these stars give their fans a moment together they will never forget and turn their already special event into something extraordinary."

Adam currently works with NBC as a coach on The Voice and is also developing a song writing competition for the same network. He is also responsible for breaking the heart of this poor child with her marriage to a Victoria’s Secret model.


For 12 years the Grey-Sloan Memorial Hospital has welcomed many a famous face with open arms.

Now the cast and crew of much-loved Grey’s Anatomy are preparing to welcome an Oscar winner—just not in the way you'd think.

Denzel Washington is expected to join the medical drama to  for the ninth episode of season 12, E! News has confirmed, however there is a twist.

Denzel won’t be donning any ferry-boat covered scrub caps, or one of those less than flattering gowns either- he’s going to be directing instead.

The episode, which was written by Grey's head writer Stacy McKee, will begin filming later this month. It is scheduled to air during November sweeps in the US. 

This is pretty much when the most epic of plot twists take place, so basically the time of year when all your TV-addict friends need you to respect their fragile emotions.

Especially when it comes to Grey’s.

The episode will mark Denzel’s first time directing for TV. He has directed two films: 2002's Antwone Fisher and 2007's The Great Debaters.

Denzel is joining the series as it's undergoing a bit of a renaissance.

The post-McDreamy episodes are set to explore Meredith’s life as a single mom and fans are dying to know if she’s going to be getting a new love interest.

Shonda Rhimes told E! News this summer that the love story isn't a current priority:

"Meredith is in a rebirth and she's evolving. I'm watching the character do what the character's doing and I'll see where it goes."
