JK Rowling has sparked speculation that Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is heading to the big screen after posting a cryptic tweet.

The 54-year-old author hinted that the stage play follow up to her hugely successful franchise is continuing, with further parts to arrive.

Returning to Twitter after a six-month break, Rowling shared a stylised image of villain Lord Voldemort's infamous Dark Mark and added the hashtag #CursedChild.

She captioned the post: "Sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places."

Harry Potter And The Cursed Child is a stage play and award-winning follow-up to the original series of seven books, and some fans are hoping that a movie is in the pipeline.

Pottermore, dashed fans hopes about a film by tweeting: "There is something exciting coming later on from @CursedChildNYC, but it's not a movie…"

Sarah Jessica Parker kicked off the Times Square takeover of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, announcing that the stage show will continue with new chapters.

"Welcome back to Hogwarts," the teaser wrote, with a yellow background and wizard at the ready.

Harry Potter And The Cursed Child premiered in London's West End in July 2016 and proved to be a huge success. 

The play's story picks up 19 years after the events of Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows, and features Harry Potter as a senior figure at the Ministry of Magic while his son Albus Severus Potter is set to start at Hogwarts.

Love Island's newest star Francesca Allen is finding herself in hot water after an old tweet resurfaced referencing Caroline Flack's former relationship with Harry Styles.

The show host was once called "a dirty paedophile" by the store owner when she was just 16-years-old, so we can't be judging her too harshly. Presumably she never thought she'd meet the host as well.

The tweet from 2012 was written by Francesca's friend Paige Banks, who took to the social media site to share the message; 

"Highlight of the day seeing Caroline Flack and calling her a dirty pedo with Francesca Allen hahaha."

Representatives of Francesca shared a statement to the media, which reads; "This was a historic tweet that has not come from Francesca directly.

"Francesca can’t reply as she is in the villa but she would be mortified if she was judged based on the actions of a 16-year-old friend. She has a lot of respect for Caroline and is looking forward to meeting her."

Many of us remember when Caroline and Harry Styles were first pictured together as a couple in 2011, with eyebrows raised due to their 14-year age gap.

Back in 2015, Caroline revealed the massive level of abuse she received once their relationship went public; 

"It began to go wrong when Harry was pictured coming out of my house one morning," Caroline wrote in her autobiography Storm In A C Cup. "And once that was out, it was open season. After that anyone could say anything. In the street people started shouting at me “paedophile” and “pervert”."

The former couple dated for a few months throughout 2011 and 2012, after a 17-year-old Harry's "captivating smile" won 32-year-old Caroline over.

"I already knew he had a crush on me, he’d made it pretty obvious," the Love Island presenter said. "It was flattering and I found it amusing. He was a kind of cheeky man/boy with a captivating smile who got what he wanted."

Francesca is seemingly unaware of the furore surrounding the ancient tweet, considering she only entered the villa three days ago. She's already caused a stir and Maura sees her as Public Enemy Number One after she chose Curtis Pritchard in the recoupling.

Shouldn't everyone dismiss the old tweet as teenage nonsense? Imagine if the things we wrote on Bebo when we were 16 were published, yeesh. We'd be finished.

Women's bodies are complex, to say the least. Half the time we aren't sure what the hell is going on with them, but men are doubly confused.

This lady decided to tweet an image of skin-coloured nipple covers to see the level of knowledge which male brains could handle, and it essentially broke them.

Twitter user @cxffeinated cheekily wrote; "Since men know everything. What are these?" and the responses were absolutely GAS.

The guesses which came in were so pure, so absurd, and so… wrong.

The silicone nipple covers were mistaken for things such as petri dishes from laboratories, wax melts in 'Caribbean Peach' flavour, and even FROG EGGS. (We died at that one)

It has definitely proven that men do not, in fact, know everything. 

Her boyfriend wanted to know the scientific scale, but he wasn't any closer to guessing correctly. Try again, lad.

Another wanted to ask if the nipple covers were actually a puncture repair kit.

Yes, that's a serious tweet. The poor fella is clueless;

Some estimates were over-confident, some were highly unsure of themselves, and others were just plain baffled.

MASH POTATO. Let that sink in for a second. Wow.

We've got to give ten points to Gryffindor for their originality, at least. They've got their creativity if nothing else.

Better luck next time, boys.

An aquarium in California, Los Angeles, has made a public apology on social media following  tweet which was made from their Twitter account. 

Monterey Bay Aquarium posted a snap of one of their otters, named Abby, in which they referred to her as 'thicc' and wrote: 'OH LAWD SHE COMIN.'

It seems that some people have taken issue with the use of these phrases, saying that they come from African American Vernacular English and refer to the bodies of black women, usually in a sexualised nature. 

'Hey everyone. It has come to our attention that some of the references in this tweet are problematic and insensitive,' the aquarium tweeted. We're posting here in the thread so that people who have engaged with this tweet will join us in our learning moment'

'If our tweet alienated you, please know that we are deeply sorry, and that we offer our sincerest apologies. If you follow our feed, we often reference popular memes to talk about the ocean. In this case, the memes used had connotations we were unaware of until now.'

'In particular, several terms referenced originated from African American Vernacular English (AAVE) and specifically reference Black women's bodies. Using them in a sea otter meme without that background makes insinuations we never intended. We need to do better.'

'Our mission is to inspire conservation of the ocean, and we're thankful for your support as we try to advance that mission on social media. We're also thankful for those of you out there pointing out our blindspots and how we can improve. Thanks everyone.'

There has been a huge division in the thread regarding whether or not the tweet had roots in racism. 

'Why would anyone take offence. It's an otter. It's about an otter. It is obviously incomparable to any human physique, race, or ethnicity. Focus on real problems, the actual bigots in offices, not non-factors like meme posts about an OTTER. Choose worthy battles,' wrote one follower. 

However, others felt that the tweet compared black women to animals: 'I’m certain that @MontereyAq didn’t realize that they were basically comparing Black women to animals by using AAVE developed to talk about Black women’s bodies to describe an animal,' wrote another. 

'Denying the harm done to black women and telling them to sit down and deal is a typical, privileged response,' wrote another.

Kim Kardashian west is one of the most well-known and easily recognisable names in the world, and while the KUWTK star is rolling in job offers for brand endorsements, TV roles and makeup appearances, us mere mortals have only our CVs and charm to rely on when it comes to securing a job. 

However, one person has utilised their online nod of approval from Kim K herself to stand out from the crowd.

Twitter user, blogger and author Chris Sumlin is on the career hunt, and under the accomplishments section of the resume, he added that Kim Kardashian has personally tweeted him to applaud his work.

'Retweeted by Kim Kardashian West for impressive work in graduate school,' the CV reads.

'Y’all I added that @KimKardashian retweeted my graduate school paper on my resume and I’ve already booked THREE job interviews in less than a week' he tweeted. 

'This woman’s influence is helping me secure a bag.'

Kim herself saw his tweet – and responded. 'Good luck! I hope you get the jobs!' she wrote. 

Chris has already updated his CV once more for potential employers, letting them know that his hunt for the career of his dreams has been given Kim's seal of approval once again.

The Grad Student faced a little bit of criticism for his tweets and association with Kim – with one tweeter asking if the secret to securing employment was to make a sex tape, a dig at Kim's original fame stunt – one which she rode the wave of to become one of the world's most successful and prosperous brands. 

In response, Chris said: 'No the secret to scoring a job interview is to leverage social media to create opportunities for yourself not use it to hate and talk mess with a stock photo as an avi.'

Yes queen – lets use these opportunities to build one another up not dismiss one another's achievements.

Modern Family star Sarah Hyland just took to Twitter to giver her support to the Repeal project.

The actress tweeted to her 1.6 million followers expressing her thoughts on the 8th amendment, growing awareness of Ireland's abortion rights laws on a global scale. 

The New York-born actress paid homage to her Irish roots in the tweet, saying: 

'I am a woman. I am Irish. I have a slew of health complications that COULD put me in a situation where I would be forced to make a heartbreaking decision,' she wrote. 

'If I was a resident of Ireland, the laws in place would kill me. I understand this all too well. #repealthe8th.'

Katie Hopkins has been sacked by LBC radio with immediate effect.

The announcement comes after the journalist posted a tweet saying that a ''final solution'' is needed following the tragic Manchester terror attack. 

The wording of the tweet proved to be highly controversial with many suggesting she was referring to the Nazis' plan to for the extermination of the Jews during the second World War. 

It read: "22 dead – number rising. Schofield. Don't you even dare. Do not be a part of the problem. We need a final solution #Machester."

Katie said she stood by the comment even after complaints were made to the Metropolitan Police Service.

LBC (Leading Britain's Conversation) is known for it's right-wing discussions, so their decision to let the presenter proves just how insensitive the comment was.

As we know, this isn't the first time Katie has found herself in hot water.

Just last year, The Mail Online was forced to pay  £150,000 to a Muslim family, after she falsely accused them of having extremist links. 

Katie has not yet commented on her dismissal.

We can't help but GUSH about the Obamas lately.

It could be because they're leaving the White House in three days, OR it could be the fact that they're just so incredible cute together.

Apart from the all work that Barack and Michelle do, we love them for being such a strong couple, and openly showing their adoration for each other.

And Barack is the latest one to gush about his love for Michelle.

The President (we're not saying goodbye yet) wrote a tweet to honour his wife today, and it was the cutest thing ever.

"To the girl from the South Side who took on a role she didn't ask for and made it her own: Happy Birthday, Michelle. I love you."

Barack is major #HubbyGoals right now.

From his hell raising guests to his close of show musings, we should have known Jerry Springer would have an interesting take on the first US Presidential debate of 2016.

On Monday night as Hillary and Donald battled it out over everything from nuclear weapons to Obama’s birth cert, the controversial talk show host set about constructing one of the best Trump tweets to hit the web this year.

The 72-year-old former soldier – who has made no secret of the fact he is avidly “with her” – wrote: “Hillary Clinton belongs in the White House.  Donald Trump belongs on my show.”

Naturally the Internet burst with applause for Jerry, with his tweet receiving more than a quarter of a million likes in just two days.

Is it too late to vote Springer?

Is Katy Perry making the first move?

It looks like the singer is about to let go of her grudge with Taylor Swift.

The pair have been on/off feuding for years now, but when someone asked her on Twitter if she'll ever see them working together, Katy's reply surprised everyone.

Twitter user Camille asked, "will you collab with Taylor Swift?" to which Katy replied, "if she says sorry, sure!"

We're glad she didn't ignore the question, or write a big fat NO, because let's be honest, these two superstars making music together would be awesome.

And you never know… Taylor is back in the studio working on her next album…

Being a successful TV presenter obviously has its perks – you get to meet incredible people, travel to exclusive locations and wear the nicest gear.  But as Laura Whitmore just pointed out, fame also has some major disadvantages.

It’s only been a day since the Bray native announced that she will be taking part in the upcoming series of Strictly Come Dancing and already the paparazzi are creeping on her gaff.

And while many people would board up their windows in a bid to protect their privacy, Laura has decided to call out the “creepy photographer” in question for his actions.

 

 

In her latest tweet the 31-year-old star shared a picture of the photographer who is trying to snap a photo of her from a Mini parked outside her house.

In the accompanying message the London-based presenter said: “Creepy photographer outside my house…I see you.  Thanks for making me feel intimidated in my own home.”

Laura’s followers have been quick to support her statement as one tweeted “Disgusting!  Your home is where you are supposed to feel safe,” while another adopted a more light-hearted approach by writing: “@thewhitmore do a few dance steps for him.”

Honestly, we were shocked when we saw the pictures of Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston kissing this morning.

Where the hell did that come from?! What about Calvin?!

Well, it seems that it's all about to kick off now as Mr Harris just predicted on Twitter.

Just after the pictures of Taylor and Tom broke, the DJ unfollowed Tay from all social media, blocked her fans and then deleted his break-up tweet.

But that's not all. He then tweeted: "Oh boy it's about to go down," along with three skull face emojis. Ouch!

Are we going to see a big celeb showdown? Or is it going to be all shady and sly digs at each other? We'll just have to wait and see.

However, now it seems that Tay's latest romance was sorta inevitable.

Shortly after Taylor and Tom were seen dancing together at the Met Gala, Tom did an interview with MTV for his new movie – and he gushed about her.

When asked what it was like dancing with the Shake It Off singer, he said: "I sat next to her at dinner that night and she was very charming.

"She is amazing. I mean, I've seen a couple of her, like, videos.

"I think I remember Shake It Off was released around the time we made I Saw the Light, and, erm, she's very cool. Yeah."

Taylor has now removed all trace of Calvin from her social media feeds, so it looks like the split wasn't as simple as they first said it was.
