It's the good news all of us Derry Girls fans( and let's be honest, who isn't?) have been waiting for.

There were suggestions of attraction between Erin and James in the first two seasons – and obviously *SPOILER* the finale of season 2 when they went to the school dance together. 

I first thought that she secretly harboured feelings for him when she was having NONE of him losing his virginity to the Russian exchange student.

That's when I was like ehhh, she's repressing a few auld feelings there.

And now Saoirse-Monica Jcakson, who palys Erin, revealed, ''I think there's definitely something to be said that at 16 you can be friends with a boy but that's definitely down to Lisa [McGee] so we'll have to see how it goes."

Nicola Coughlan, who plays Clare, then said, ''Ooooh, Jerin! Jerin!"

Lisa MGee, creator of Derry Girls, previously told Radio Times, ''I think there might be. I've always thought James likes her, but I think he maybe doesn’t even understand that yet, and I don't know when that'll, it might happen when they're much older, so it might not actually happen in our show.''

She continued, ''But I think the potential is there, it's something I'm interested in seeing – I might toy with it if we do another season.''

She added, ''I think Erin doesn't realise that she might like him until someone else wants him, that sort of thing. So, yeah, it might be interesting to explore that a bit more, because they're great together."

This is the best news ever – it's so obviously they fancy the arses off each other – now we just have to wait until season three to see it all play out. 


Giddy up, the Late Late is ridin' into town.

Don your cowboy hats and get ready to get into the swing of all things country music.

It will kick off with the biggest opening number yet, featuring Daniel O’Donnell, Nathan Carter, Cliona Hagan, Mike Denver, Michael English, Robert Mizzell, Derek Ryan, and Trudi Lalor – and 100 jivers from around the country giving it socks to an 80s classic.

Host Ryan Tubridy will then host a “Circle of Friends”, sharing family tales and hearing some of our star’s fave songs.

We’ll hear from Robert Mizzell and his dad Richard, who will fly in from Louisiana, Susan McCann and 13-year-old granddaughter Sinead, Cliona Hagan and sister Nicole, and Jimmy Buckley and daughter Claudia.

Ryan will also chat to the gentle giant of country Mick Flavin and his family about his 20-year road to success, overcoming alcohol addiction and having two sons who were born deaf and will never hear their father sing. 

You might need to have some tissues at the ready.

In April, the Late Late Show team and the expert panel of Margo and Nathan Carter hit the road to audition hopefuls in the “Search for a Country Star” competition.

Acts from up and down the country competed, and we’ll meet the lucky winner on Friday, as well as see them perform a contemporary country hit with Nathan.

There will also be a tribute to Hank Williams, including tracks such as Hey Good Looking and I Saw the Light. 

And it would be a country music extravaganza without the legendary Daniel O’Donnell, who will make a much-anticipated appearance (no sarcasm). 

Tune into the The Late Late Show Country Special, RTÉ One, Friday, May 3 at 9.35pm. 


It's Friday night and while to some of you; they  might mean getting glammed up and heading out, for us it's an excuse to put out feet up and watch Tubs on The Late Late.

Is it weird to look forward to it, like are we showing our age?

Sure f*ck it, with guests like this, how could you blame us?

First up is popstar turned country crooner Una Healy who will be in studio to chat about forging her solo career and finding her country roots since saying goodbye to The Saturdays.

She’ll also be performing her new single Strangers and telling viewers about how the break-up of her marriage to rugby player Ben Foden inspired the track.


A post shared by Una Healy (@unahealy) on

Then we have one of the first homegrown film-makers to conquer Hollywood, winning an Oscar for The Crying Game,.

Writer and director Neil Jordan will discuss his new film Greta and look back on his extraordinary career, three decades in Tinseltown, and what the legacy of Michael Collins tells us about Brexit.

We’ll celebrate Tiger Roll’s famous win at the Grand National, doing the double for the first time since Red Rum, with the women who groomed him for greatness. 

Louise Magee and Karen Morgan will bring the legendary racehorse to meet Ryan.

Also making an appearance is the man who helped make Conor McGregor a star, coach John Kavanagh.

He will be on to talk about his battle to get the controversial sport of MMA recognised in Ireland and how it has helped change lives and also give his take on what's next for the notorious UFC fighter and his own coaching career.

In summer 1985, a strange phenomenon swept Ireland – reports of moving statues abounded and Ryan will be joined by two of the people who were there to witness this uniquely Irish story as it unfolded, Ballinspittle’s Patricia Bowen and Monasterevin’s John Miller.

Former Ireland international soccer player turned pundit and psychotherapist Richie Sadlier will tell us why we are failing a generation of young people by not talking openly and honestly about sex.

He’ll be telling viewers why he is on a mission to educate teenagers about sex, porn and consent. 

There's all that plus music from Dervish.

So make sure to tune in to RTÉ One, Friday, April 12 at 9.35pm.


It's Friday night and you know what that means.

Yes, the Late Late Show will be on our screens tonight and it's got a stellar lineup.

First off, we have the hilarious duo of Marty Morrissey and Bernard O’Shea whose bromance started on Dancing With The Stars and is now back on our TV's where they belng.


A post shared by Bernard O'Shea (@bernardo.oshea) on

They have a brilliant show called Marty and Bernard’s Big Adventure and they join host Ryan Tubridy to discuss modern manhood, and how they fared when tasked with surviving a night out in the wilds.

Then we have fashion and beauty blogger turned businesswoman Suzanne Jackson.

The creator of one of Ireland’s best-known lifestyle sites, SoSueMe.ie, she is also the founder and CEO of a bestselling beauty brand.

Suzanne will be chatting about her rise to success and the influence that social media holds in society today.


A post shared by Suzanne Jackson-O’Connor (@sosueme_ie) on

If that wasn't enough, Senator Michael McDowell joins Ryan to discuss the current political climate in Ireland and chats about his new documentary which examines the history of the Catholic Church and state relations, and how Rome came to shape the Irish political landscape.

Dublin footballer Philly McMahon and Governor of Mountjoy Prison Eddie Mullins join Ryan to discuss what can be done to rehabilitate offenders through the ‘Unfuccced’ programme, and the supports that are needed by ex-offenders to reintegrate into society.

The phenomenon of burnout will be discussed with a panel and how best to prevent and treat it.

Also, there's going to be tunes from Soulé.

The Late Late Show is on RTÉ One, Friday, April 5 at 9.35pm. 


The professional dancers of Strictly Come Dancing are reportedly putting their foot down when it comes to what kind of celebrities will be  on the show.

After the success of vlogger and YouTube star Joe Sugg in the 2018 series, the pros are saying that his millions of followers online are an unfair advantage.

Joe might not have been the strongest dancer, but he did have eight million YouTube subscribers and more than five million Instagram and Twitter followers to help him get to the final.


A post shared by Joe (@joe_sugg) on

So the pros have gone to the BBC producers to get social media stars banned from the lineup due to these numbers of people voting for them.

The producers had hoped that Joe would attract a younger audience but his landslide vote in his favour week-after-week left the pros unimpressed.

According to The Sun, ''Joe’s huge popularity caused some tension last year after he was being voted to stay in the show each week.''


A post shared ye BBC Strictl e(@bbcstrictly) on

They continued, ''He wasn’t the best dancer, so his place on the show was purely based on his fan base.''

They added, ''Now the pros are going to unite and ask for no social media personalities for a year, to give everyone a level playing field. The professionals talk regularly discuss on different points relating to the show and this has been a hot topic.”

It seems that shows like Strictly are like most reality shows – mostly about popularity, rather than talent. 

People vote for the dancer that is the most likeable, and not the one who is actually the best.

So is this banning of social media stars a good idea?

Or will the same thing happen as it does most years, the couple who has connected the most with the public taking the Gitterball?


The first series of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina was a long way from the 1990s TV show that we all loved so much.

But somehow, lead actor Kiernan Shipka transformed the role into her own and we fell in love with the world of witches and warlocks once more.

So the release of the trailer for the hotly-anticipated second series has arrived and we are BUZZING. 


A post shared by Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (@sabrinanetflix) on

The trailer sees Sabrina embrace all of her dark gifts as she enters her high school, pours petrol on the floor and sets it alight.

The show hints that the main character is walking down a "darker path" after having a 'dark baptism' in season one.

A love triangle is also going to be part of this season as Sabrina is torn between her first love, Harvey Kinkle, and warlock Nicholas Scratch.

C'mon Sabrina, it's gotta be Harvey, right? 


A post shared by Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (@sabrinanetflix) on

The official synopsis for the Netflix show says, ''Part two finds Sabrina exploring her darker side, curious to learn more about her heritage, while struggling to maintain her friendships in the mortal world. Romantically, Sabrina is caught in an unholy love triangle with between sexy warlock Nicholas Scratch and salt-of-the-Earth mortal Harvey Kinkle.''

It continues, ''Meanwhile, the Dark Lord, Madame Satan, and Father Blackwood continue to conjure chaos in the Spellman household and the town of Greendale. And they aren't the only ones trying to raise hell. Everything is in question…relationships, identity, true intentions…when the devil's work is at hand."

We have SO MANY goosebumps.

Fans were just as excited as us, with one saying, ''This season is going to be something wicked.'' 

While another wrote, ''Forget Satan…..Praise Sabrina.'' 

Part II hits our screens on April 5 so there's not long to wait now lads. 


There's a month to go before the hotly-anticipated eight season of Game of Thrones hits our screens.

With the new season on the horizon, hot topics include The Night King (with some even suggesting the villain could take the Iron Throne) and the fate of the White Walker leader.

Whilst these conversation starters are on the tip of our tongues at the moment, there is one factor which is constant, and that's the eye-catching filming locations.

They always look so stunning on film – and guess what?

You can visit them in person and see the jaw-dropping sites for yourself.

Not a bad idea for a weekend away, right?

A  map from Globehunters showcases some of the best GOT filming locations, so you can visit them for yourself.

So first up is Dubrovnik in Croatia – where Kings Landing in Season 2 was filmed in and was first seen in The North Remembers Episode.

And the best news is it's FREE. 

Another gorgeous location is Þingvellir in Iceland.

The Entrance to the Eyrie’s true location is there and Season 4 wouldn't have been the same without this stunning set.

Another fabulous filming location is in Northern Ireland where in the first episode when we were introduced to Winterfell and the young Stark boys practising Archery.

The scenes were filmed in County  Down where you can visit Castle Ward in Northern Ireland for less than £10.

Passports at the ready. 


What is going on in the world of Made in Chelsea?

First Little Sammy T announces that he's calling it a day on the E4 show and now two other big names have followed suit.

By ''big names'' I mean two cast members that have been there longer than three minutes and whose names I actually know.

Yes, Ms Louise Thompson and her weird plastic Action-Man fiance Ryan Libbey have left the show.

Tbh, were they even really on it anymore?

The dramz surrounds blonde clones fighting over lads named Digby.


A post shared by Louise Thompson (@louise.thompson) on

This news comes just days before the show's 159th (sorry, 17th) series starts.

Louise has been partaking in staged run-ins since teh shows second series more than eight years ago, when she was a university student.

She blew up our screens with her constant crying during her relationship with Spencer Matthews, ill-fated time with Andy ''Nostrils'' Jordan and Ultra American Alik.

She then met personal trainer Ryan in 2016 as her and Alik were crumbling.


A post shared by RYAN (@ryan.libbey) on

He made his debut on the show in the show's St Tropez spin-off and the pair got engaged in 2018.

So it seems like all of the old cast is growing up – Binky has a daughter, Spencer has a son, Millie and Hugo are married…even Sam is trying to grow up (kinda).

Now we wait with bated breath for the ultimate man-child, Jamie Laing to also take his leave…yeah, we actually wouldn't hold our breath for that one.


It's the end of an era.

Sam Thompson, Little Sammy T, is bidding farewell to Made in Chelsea

At this rate he's one of the only cast members that most of recognise (the f*ck is Habbs?)

Anyway, the 26-year-old has had enough of the scripted, awkward-silences, champagne-scoffing shenanigans and we can't blame him tbh.

His reason?


A post shared by Sam Thompson (@samthompsonuk) on

He's struggling with his split from on-screen GF Sophie Habboo.

He told Heart London Breakfast that he felt his time on the show had come to a natural end after copping the obvious – that the majority of the cast were mates with his ex and that his own friends had moved on.

He said, ''The split is why I kind of left in the first place. You don't want to be around your ex. Everyone on there is now more her friend and a lot of my friends have upped and left.''

He continued, ''I get a lot of things wrong, and I think to learn, evolve and grow as a human you have to make mistakes but when you're doing it on TV, people are judgey. It'll be nice not to have that level of scrutiny.''

He added, ''Getting dumped all the time was chipping away at my confidence."

He went on to say that filming MIC takes a lot of work and in the seven years that he's been on it, he sure has given us some memorable moments.


A post shared by Sam Thompson (@samthompsonuk) on

Remember him trying it on with…eh, literally almost everyone at some point?

His ill-fated romance with Tiffany Watson aka moaniest woman on the planet?

His incessant ''maaaaaate'' and clapping Jamie on the back every few seconds?

He said, ''I grew up on that show. I joined when I was 19, I'm 26 now. The door is not shut, but I don't see myself going back in the near future.''

He continued, ''I haven't had time to sit down and think about it. I think I'll be back at some point, so I'm not too sad."

If you miss him fear not, he's over on Celebs Go Dating saying ''maaaate'' every few seconds and being cringey at chatting up girls – sure it's MIC without the posh accents. 


It's almost that time of the year again.

Ok, so it's massively cheesy but you'd be lying if you said that you didn't look forward to a night where the whole country joins together to cheer our little island on as they compete in a parade of ridiculousness. 

Now RTE has unveiled the tune to which we will be pinning our hopes to as it represents Ireland at the Eurovision Song Contest 2019.

It's titled 22, was penned by Janieck, Marcia “Misha” Sondeijker and Roulsen and will be sang by Sarah McTernan. 

Sarah is delighted to be taking to the stage for Ireland.

She said, ''It’s like an early birthday present! My 25th birthday is next Monday and if you’d told me last year that I’d be chosen to represent my country at Eurovision, performing the song for the first time on Dancing with the Stars this Sunday, and then flying to Tel Aviv on my birthday to record a postcard, I would have told you – you were crazy!”

She continued, ''My Mom, Nana, family and friends are super excited for me – they’re shocked and very proud. I can’t wait to teach my biggest fan – my 2 ½ year old daughter Mia- all the lyrics to “22”!”

The song will be played on radio for the first time at 9am on Friday morning on The Ryan Tubridy Show on RTÉ Radio 1.

She will aso be interviewed on The Nicky Byrne Show with Jenny Greene on 2FM at 12:30pm on Friday, and by Ray D’Arcy on RTÉ Radio 1 at 3pm.

If that wasn't enough, Dancing with the Stars is having a special Eurovision Song Contest themed programme this Sunday and Sarah will be performing the song live for the first time, to give us all an idea of what it will be like at the real thing in Tel Aviv.

The Eurovision Semi Final in Tel Aviv takes place on Thursday May 16, with the grand final taking place on Saturday May 18.

We are seriously excited – come on Ireland. 


The Sinner season three will be hitting our screens.

USA Network has confirmed the good news and announced that Matt Bomer will be going head-to-head with Bill Pullman’s Detective Harry Ambrose.

If you're not familiar with Matt, you might recognise him from the Will & Grace reboot as McCoy Whitman or as Andy from AHS' Freak Show (you know, the guy whose arm was sawed off by Dandy in the trailer?) 

Well, he's set to take on the role of Jamie, who is an upstanding Dorchester resident and expectant father who looks to Ambrose for support after the accident.

This new season will follow ''Detective Harry Ambrose as he begins a routine investigation of a tragic car accident on the outskirts of Dorchester, in upstate New York. Ambrose uncovers a hidden crime that pulls him into the most dangerous and disturbing case of his career.''

Matt follows leads Jessica Biel and Carrie Coon, who took on the main roles in the first and second seasons.

Will  he match their unreal performances?

Matt took to social media to post about the fantastic news. 


Detective Ambrose is back. @mattbomer joins Bill Pullman for the third installment of #TheSinner

A post shared by The Sinner (@thesinnerusa) on

He wrote, ''Words can’t really explain the excitement I feel getting to be a part of a show that I’m such a fan of, not to mention working with this incredible cast. Also: it’s really nice to be coming home to @USA_Network – can’t wait!’

Matt's fans were delighted with the news.

One wrote, ''Oh wow! Great news. I love that show. I will be looking forward to S3 with greater anticipation now.''

While another said, ''Cannot wait. Absolutely love this show and love your work so I’m well happy.''

Although there's no official release date yet, it looks likely that it’ll be coming in August.

Now we'll just re-watch the first two seasons to get pumped up for this one…


There's no doubt about it: Ariana Grande is absolutely smashing the music industry right now.

From releasing two number one albums within six months and winning a Grammy to breaking records set by none other than the Beatles; she's achieved a huge amount in a short space of time.

She recently surprised adorable tween Filipino boy band TNT on yesterday's Late Late Show With James Corden, and opened up about her personal life.

Ariana has just broken an incredible record; Grande is the first artist since the Beatles to hold the number one album slot and Billboard Hot 100 top-three single slots at once, with 7 Rings, Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I'm Bored and Thank U, Next.

Corden rattled off the crazy statistics while Grande responded with humble graciousness and no less than 13 “sorrys,” “I’m sorrys,” and “I’m so sorrys.” It's the new "yuh".

Grande laughed along with the talk show host after the overwhelming achievements, and assured him, “I’ll take a break after this. I’ll go away for a little, I promise.”

Thank God, Corden spoke on behalf of us all when he responded with, “We don’t want you to,” but Grande was quick to reply, “I do! I’m tired of my voice.”

The 25-year-old star added that recently, “I usually don’t have anything to do …Personal life is still nonexistent,” and that she was planning on celebrating the Billboard records by going out to dinner with her mom or recording more in the studio.

The gal has an insane work ethic, and can do no wrong it would seem. 2019 is most definitely the Year of the Grande, and her tour starts in four weeks. We WISH we had tickets to see the queen perform in person.

Carry on slayin' the game Ari, we say "yuh" instead of "I'm sorry" because you should NEVER apologise for your hard-earned success. Get it, gurl.
