Jack Fincham and Dani Dyer have both opened up after The Sun reported that the pair were now living separately following Jack's cocaine binge.

The Love Island couple have been through their fair amount of drama, but now it's heightened as Jack admits to taking a class A drug on a weekend with friends.

Dani's mother Jo was seen hauling a suitcase out of the duo's house in images obtained by the publication, with a source claiming that Dani and her family were "furious" at Jack.

Dani has denied this;

She took to Twitter to dissipate the claims, saying, "I can’t believe I’m commenting on a paper but when my family are constantly brought up I can’t bear it. MY family have done nothing but always love and support Jack through good times and bad."

She concluded, "So don’t send me messages and judge something you know nothing about." 

Now Jack has come out with his own statement on the matter, saying;

"Please don’t read everything you read , I love Dani and her family and me and Dani are fine we love each other , it’s a shame that this has been written as it’s so untrue." 

He later clarified that he'd meant to say "don't believe everything you read".

The 27-year-old told The Sun the other day that. "I'm in a new world of partying and stuff, and being in circles that I would never normally have been in."

He continued; "I'd never normally be in these situations but, yes, since winning the show I have been offered cocaine a lot."

Jack went on to say how much he regretted taking the drug during a recent night out with pals, and urged young fans not to follow in his footsteps;

"But I went out all night, I was drinking and I just got carried away and made a stupid, stupid mistake which I wish I'd never done, you know. I regret it."

Jack and Dani are doing just fine, judging by their tweets.

With the current charged political climate of #MeToo, which is bringing issues of consent, sexual violence, abuse and harassment to light on a daily basis, it's the PERFECT time for a show like Sex Education.

Netflix' new series is already critically acclaimed with it's standout teenage characters, incredible acting talents and refreshing humour, but what's just as important is the need to face sexuality and it's trials and tribulations at a young age.

The show is tackling imperative issues and somehow manages to be laugh-out-loud funny at the same time, how does it achieve this unique, charming quality?

Sex Education follows Otis Milburn, a socially awkward but sweet-natured sixteen-year-old (Asa Butterfield) and his sex therapist mother, played by the amazing Gillian Anderson.

Otis' school life is filled with iconic characters like Eric Effiong (Ncuti Gatwa), the most GAS LGBT+ character of all time, and misunderstood punk and resident badass Maeve Wiley (Emma Mackey).

Middle finger Maeve= our 2019 mood. You heard it here first:

After discovering his penchant for giving responsible and understanding sex advice, Maeve 'complex female characters' Wiley encourages Otis to set up his own teen sex clinic for some quick cash, and the results are HILARIOUS.

Chrissy Teigen is the latest celebrity to have been essentially CANCELLED online, after offensive tweets from back in 2010 and 2011 surfaced which say some pretty dodgy stuff about self-harm, Lindsey Lohan and trans people.

The tweets have been met with outrage on the internet, with Twitter users getting the hashtag #ChrissyTeigenIsOverParty trending almost instantaneously.

The comments are from roughly eight years ago, but they reference the appearances of celebrities such as Mariah Carey, Lady Gaga and in particular Lindsay Lohan. 

They are especially distasteful regarding the trans community, one of her tweets references Tyra Banks' talent search show America's Next Top Model;

"God. Can we just come out and call the freakin show ‘americas next top tranny’ because this shit has been transtastic for the past 5 years."

Another tweet references self-harm:

The word 'tranny' is used often on her account back in 2010 and 2011. The social media personality is half-Thai, and speaks about the perception of her country in terms of the trans community:

There are some more upsetting ones regarding slut-shaming sexually promiscuous women:

The mother-of-two has yet to comment on the matter, but we're sure she must regret not deleting her old, harmful tweets.

The model has become a major social media personality for her sassy remarks about Donald Trump, and has the crown of the 'Clapback Queen' and 'Queen of Twitter'. 

We highly doubt she'll manage to keep her crown after this.

What do you think, should she be cancelled? Or will you give her another chance?

The recent uproar surrounding decade-old tweets unearthed from YouTube superstar Zoe Sugg's Twitter proves that deleting those old posts from when you were an idiotic teenager is always a good idea. 

The YouTuber, blogger and business woman was on the receiving end of serious backlash, when tweets that she posted a number of years ago were dug up and republished by social media sleuths. 

The tweets were penned between 2009 and 2012, and one which offended people in particular was the following:

In other tweets, referring to an unknown person, Zoe also said 'I just saw her Twitter. She needs to get dressed tbh. Lol skank attack.'

She also tweeted that another woman should have '"kept her legs shut" excuse my choice of words haha.'

It is not known what she was specifically referring to in this instance, though Zoe mentions in her apology that she was discussing a TV show. 

Another tweet showed her communicating with fellow mega-blogger Tanya Burr, in which she referred to someone as a 'tranny.' 

Another tweet has been criticised as Islamaphobic. 

In the tweet, Zoe took a picture of a woman in full hijab against her knowledge, and captioned it: 'There's a death eater on my train.'

Zoe, who has over 12 million followers on YouTube, has apologised for the statements that she made. 

'I’ve seen a few of my old tweets from 7/8 years ago floating around (which I have now deleted) using words like “chav” “skank” and other words I wouldn’t use now as part of my language and lot of them were taken out of context referring to TV shows but I would never say those things now and I’m sorry if I have offended anyone, that was not my intention,' she said via Twitter.  

'Obviously that is not who I am today and I’d like to think I’m a little older and wiser!'

'I’m not perfect and I’ve never claimed to be, I’m only human.'

Fans of the vlogger have rushed to her defence, claiming that Zoe was young and immature when she made the statements (she would have been aged 19-22) and that people change. 

'I don’t think it’s fair that people are judging Zoella on tweets from 7 years ago. I used to be quite a nasty person 7 years ago but I grew up and learned from that and so did she,' said one.

However, others have been discussing the damage to the very wholesome brand of Zoella under the '#ZoellaIsOverParty' hashtag. 

The apology comes after the online star was forced to defend her advent calendar, which received quite a bit of backlash online for it's price and quality of contents.

Discussions on rape, sexual harassment and consent have been more prominent than ever in recent weeks, as case after high profile case is exposed in Hollywood and the music industry. 

Yesterday, Hozier gave his two cents on the manner. 

Taking to Twitter, the singer penned a poignant tweet t in favour of consent. 

 

A post shared by Andrew Hozier Byrne (@hozier) on

The Take Me To Church musician framed his tweet in a manner intended to address the commonplace (and incorrect) argument that consent is a grey area, and that articulating consent between adults can ruin the mood.

'Consent is sexy. Lads, if you're not convinced that consent, audible consent -something uttered, something whispered, something called for loudly- is sexy, then chaps I'm afraid you may not be doing this right,' he tweeted. 

'Be well.'

He then followed this with: 'Before I get butchered for using this language, of course it is first and foremost *mandatory*.'

'I'm more addressing a commonly found aversion to "ruining the mood" by discussing sex before an act of sex, which is frankly, nonsense.'

Many people applauded the singer for making a positive contribution to the discussion surrounding sexual violence, and for using his platform to publicise an important issue. 

However, others criticised the singer for framing his comment in such a way. 

'I understand the sentiment but framing consent as sexy isn’t necessarily sending the right message,' tweeted one. 

'Consent isn’t sexy, it is wholly and absolutely necessary.'

In response, Hozier, aka Andrew Byrne, tweeted once more.

'That was a poorly worded tweet. I had seen something that annoyed me re people talking about, voicing, asking etc and provided absolutely no context at all in what I thought was an irreverent jibe aimed at lads. Language matters and framing it that way was silly,' he said.

Fans rushed to his defence, saying 'you're an ally dude. We all see that.'

'If what you said offended somebody then you must be doing something right lol – people on this site at this time are so vitriolic anyway,' said another.

So ladies, we're officially less than 24 hours away from the first day of the Leaving Cert.

And, as you can imagine, Twitter is lit right now.

Instead of actually… you know… studying, this year's candidates are tweeting their thoughts about the upcoming state exam, and suffice to say, it makes for hilarious reading.

What they lack in preparation, they more than make up for in humour.

1. You have been warned.

 2. Yeah, why like?

3. Been there. 

4, Yeah… 

5. Graphic… but understandable. 

6. Yup. 

7. Ah, our spirit animal. 

8. Positive thoughts…

9. That's one way to go about it. 

10. Oh, we relate.
