All is not as it seems in that Love Island villa.

First we learned that 99.5% of Samira's journey was edited out, plus not to mention 99.9% of her relationship with Frankie.

And now ex-contestant Savanna Darnell – yer one with the fab hair who got about four seconds of air time – has dropped another bombshell.


HERE WE GO #loveisland #supportsav

A post shared by SAVANNA DARNELL (@_savannadarnell) on

She appeared on Lewys Balls YouTube channel where she nattered away about all things Love Island.

Oh, and mentioned that she had been cosying up to one Mr Wes Nelson.

Yep, Megan's boyf wasn't as loyal as he made out to be. And we are shook.

"Me and Wes actually really got on. We shared a bed – they never showed that. We had a cuddle, we were singing the whole time, up till stupid o' clock giggling and laughing in bed – that's what you didn't see hunnies."

So the producers simply edited all their time together out?

''They just never wanted to show it,'' Savanna said. 

This hasn't been the only time recently that the ITV show has been hit with claims of deceptive editing and re-shooting.

One eagle-eyed viewer took to Twitter to expose a scene that looked like it had been filmed twice if you look at Georgia's manicure from one frame to the next. 

Bit sus, no?

As well as continuity issues a la Georgia's nails, ''The Kiss'', which quickly became the most saturated plot line of the series, was also put under the microscope.

Because I am sad and have no life, I've watched the clip below quite a few times and I'm still none the wiser.

Is the first kiss them saying hello and the second kiss them saying goodbye?

Watch the vid below and deicide for yourselves, it's a tricky one.

However, one thing is one million percent for sure: Love Island is a reality TV show and the producers know we want all the dramz, so they edit the footage to give us that.

Fair enough we say, but if any producers are reading this, we beg you – don't make us hear ''I'm loyal babes, I'm real, that's just who I am'' one more time. We just can't. 


All hail Queen Kylie.

It seems that she's everywhere atm, right?

From landing the cover of Forbes, to shocking the world by removing her lip fillers, now the 20-year-old is gracing the August cover of GQ mag alongside her fella of one year, Travis Scott. 

The couple shared images from their stunning photo shoot all across social media yesterday, with Kylie uploading two snaps to her Instagram.

The billionaire business mogul and her 27-year-old rapper beau, who are parents to five-months-old.Stormi, were interviewed by Mark Anthony Green and they spilled a lot of goss. 



A post shared by Kylie (@kyliejenner) on

The pair revealed that they never had a proper first date, as they met at Coachella where she decided to join Travis on his tour bus. As you do. 

'“So he said, ‘I'm going back on tour—what do we want to do about this? And I was like, ‘I guess I'm going with you,’'' Kylie told the magazine

Obviously, social media blew up in response to this shoot – and everyone has an opinion. 

Some fans were focused on how they were styled, wth one writing, ''Travis Scott's net worth is estimated at $8M. By Forbes’ estimate Kylie’s net worth is $900M. That’s more than her ENTIRE family w/Kanye combined yet via photo shoot, GQ endorsed reducing Kylie to a lap trophy/sex object. And women wonder WHY the equality struggle is real.''

Many others loved the photos though, and Instagram was filled with comments of support.

''You two are the absolute dream couple'' followed by heart-eyes emoji's said one, and another wrote, ''Kylie looks very happy with Travis. They both suit each other.''

Kylie, who has made a pretty $900million from Kylie Cosmetics, recently hit headlines due to comedy page The Fat Jew who set up a GoFundMe page to get to $1 billion (yes, really). 

''I don't want to live in a world where Kylie Jenner doesn't have a billion dollars. WE MUST RAISE 100 MILLION DOLLARS TO HELP HER GET TO A BILLION, PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD, THIS IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT. LINK IN BIO TO DONATE,'' it wrote.

Understandably, people were p*ssed off.

''Wow didn't know this level of stupidness actually existed,'' one person commented on the post.

We think that – somehow – Kylie will manage to scrape together bus fare without our help, don't you?


More bad news for anyone planning on flying with Ryanair this Friday.

The airline have just announced the cancellation of 24 flights today, which will affect thousands of passengers.

This decision comes after a pilot union refused to postpone its planned strike action for this Friday.

Ryanair had invited representatives of trade union Fórsa, who are behind the upcoming strike, to discuss the ongoing row over how transfers, holidays and promotions are allocated among their pilots.

Ryanair said that unless the pilots postponed their strike by 5pm yesterday, the airline would be forced to cancel 24 flights today, mainly between Ireland and the UK, for this Friday, July 20th. 

According to The Independent, a spokesperson for the trade union confirmed  that this deadline was not met.

“We needed more notice than what they had asked. We’re in the business of solving an industrial dispute. The earliest we can meet them is on either Wednesday or Thursday,” they said. 

Eddie Wilson, chief people officer at Ryanair, said many of the proposals made by Fórsa at a meeting with airline management last week were “contradictory and work to the disadvantage of Irish pilots and our business model.''

Passengers are understandably  upset at this further disruption with many taking to social media to vent their frustration. 

One wrote, ''Why does anyone still book with that joke of an airline?'' while others showed their support for the pilots striking, saying, ''absolutely no one gives up a days pay without good reason. Ryanair pilots are changing the game for all staff in the company and deserve nothing but support.''

Keep on eye out for any updates and fingers crossed that you're not affected!


The hotly anticipated third instalment of smash Netflix phenomenon Stranger Things may still be a way off but fans finally got a little nugget of what the next season has in store.

Netflix released the short clip, titled, ''Ahoy! Something is coming… to Hawkins, Indiana!'' yesterday to mass excitement.

It showed a brand new mall, Starcourt Mall, that's coming to Hawkins in the summer of 1985.

Big permed hair, cycling shorts and neon legwarmers followed as the mall came to life with 80's shoppers.

Not to mention the appearance of fan favourite Steve Harrington (Joe Kerry) clad in a sailor outfit at what we can assume is his summer job in Scoops Ahoy! ice cream parlour. 

Btw, whoever okayed putting a hat on top of The Hair – which is almost a character in it's own right – has some serious answering to do.

Joining him was newbie Robin (Maya Thurman-Hawke), who looked as equally unenthusiastic about working there as our Steve.

So what does it all mean?

Well, fans are literally combing through each scene, looking for any clues that creators The Duffer Brothers may have slipped in.

One fan wrote, ''you don't know how much ive seen this clip. i NeEd mOrE sTrAnGeR tHiNgS 3!!!!''

Most of the crazy fan theories and assumptions are that something is not quite right with Starcourt Mall – why make a clip solely dedicated to it if wasn't linked in some way linked to the Upside Down?

One comment said, ''I bet there is gonna be some epic showdown inside the mall with eleven and all the kids trying to defeat a monster'' while another agreed that the mall hold's definite importance in the plot. 

''Brenners gonna waltz Back into Hawkins to find a shopping mall has been built over his lab. Eleven and mike go on a date to the mall and bump into Brenner.''


Helluva day….

A post shared by Shawn Levy (@slevydirect) on

One fan suggested that the mall was built on the grounds of Hawkin's lab. 

Hmmm, not sure about that one but I suppose we'll just have to keep on guessing for now!

The show has another reason to celebrate as it has just landed a whopping and well-deserved 12 Emmy nominations including Outstanding Drama Series, and nods for David Harbour (Hopper) and Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven ) in their respective roles.

Shame that the amazing Noah Schnapp (Will Byers) missed out on a nom as he was insanely brilliant in S2.

Thankfully, a few more set secrets were spilled recently thanks to executive producer Shawn Levy's interview with GQ.

He explained that four of the eight episodes have now been filmed, but the Duffers are still writing the second half of the season while they edit the first half.

 “We still are scrambling to find time for the [Duffer] brothers to write the second half of the season while we're making the first half. Like every creative type the brothers have their process, and no matter how resolved they are to be more efficient with their time or not, some things don't change.”

He also promised a turn in the plot “toward darker and bigger action-packed fare than we’ve ever attempted.”

Stranger Things 3 began filming in April in Atlanta but it looks like we'll have to sit tight til sometime in 2019 to see what the gang get up to next.

To scratch that ST itch, catch Summer of 84 next month and hold tight for that S3 trailer! 


Miley Cyrus has her fans up in arms about why she has deleted her Instagram posts.

The singer has also changed her profile picture to a black circle on the gram, Twitter and her website. – Interesting.

We have no idea what this could possibly mean, so we turned to the Internet for answers. – Cue all the fan theories.


Some have dared to dream that new music could be imminent.

Others are speculating that it's the end of the singers and Liam Hemsworth relationship. – (Although, we are completely refusing to believe this, or all love is forever dead.)

However, we will miss all the ADORABLE pictures she posted of them. 

Sticking to the more plausible music theory, Miley will be following in the footsteps of Taylor Swift if she uses the social media blackout as a way to drop new tracks. 

Tay-tay famously wiped her socials before the release of her album 'reputation'.

Here is hoping we are spoilt with some new tunes – to say we are excited – is an understatement.



My name is Aoife and I'm possibly addicted to Love Island.

Look, I started the summer as a total Love Island virgin, only tuning into episode one of Series Four because my younger sister was and I wanted to know what all the fuss was about.

While the first few weeks were quite boring, I did get caught up in the drama of Adam ''I'd be lying if I didn't say she was attractive'' Collard, Rosie's now-iconic ''walk'', Megan being Megan, Jack and Dani's romance/fauxmance (still not sure on that one) and of course, Dr Alex's attempted flirty banter that I'm sure we all cringed through together. 

But when my sister and I properly ugly-cried during last night's show, you might think it's because we're just too invested in this reality TV bullsh*t.

Which I assure you, we are.

However, it was for a different reason that the episode was particularly heart-wrenching.

Samira Mighty, one of the OG's, finally had had enough so she packed her bags and left the villa, water bottle in hand, head held high.

Up until now, I wouldn't have said I was her No 1 fan even though I felt so sorry for the way her villa experience was going. 

She was stuck in a ''friendship couple'' with Alex off the bat, she always seem to strike out when it came to any new boys coming in, plus her relationship with Frankie didn't seem genuine because he'd originally admitted that Megan was his first choice.

Like, FFS.

So, when she announced to the rest of the Islanders that she was quitting the show, I was properly shocked that the whole f*cking Island fell to absolute pieces.

The girls were inconsolable, the lads weren't much better and Sam herself couldn't get through a sentence without bawling. I dare you to watch the Alex and Samira chat on the roof and not to get all the feels.

Basically, in the most airtime Samira had gotten over the past five weeks, it quickly became glaringly obvious – that she was the beating heart of the villa.

So, eh, why didn't we see that?

I know the producers want to air scenes that have the most drama but scenes showing the development of actual friendships is what made the other years of Love Island fun and relatable. And there's been a serious lack of that this year.

I've seen more of Megan's arse and Georgia's rants about her loyalty than I have of, say, Laura and Sam having a laugh/chat/interaction.


Aw poor Samira, she waited so long to find someone. #LoveIsland

A post shared by Love Island (@loveisland) on

So as I was scrolling through Twitter last night, bleary-eyed with emotion, I was hit by another blow.

Samira and Frankie – who I literally had no time for and thought they were a load of sh*te – had been voted into the Hideaway one night and IT.WAS.NEVER.SHOWN.

Like, why? Why did we see Josh and Kaz, Megan and Eyal, etc etc and not them? 

They never got a fair shot for the public to get to know them as a couple and maybe have a chance to be kept in. People can't root for you if they don't know you. 

My point is that I understand why the more ''boring couples'' i.e Ellie and Charlie are sidelined a bit, but the editing of the show has essentially robbed Samira, who we all know had a tough time pre-Frankie, of her time on Love Island.

It seems I'm not the only one to be raging at this shoddy editing because Twitter are unleashing their fury too.

One wrote, ''Samira leaving love island & England losing the world cup just proves trump coming here tomorrow is ruining the little good this country had left don’t @ me'' and ''Megan went into the hideaway twice and it was aired. Samira went in with the only guy she had a connection with, but no show. Disgusting bias from Love island bosses.''

Hear hear. Poor Sam suffered a grave injustice and I just can't even with it all.


The X Factor is coming back to our screens very soon!

So, bring on the the sick Granny sob stories and the so-bad-they're-truly-appalling singers that the producers put through just to fill up the Daily Mail Showbiz comment sections. 

Excited?Us neither.

If you are an X Factor fan (all twelve of you that are left) then here's some hot off the press news about the judging panel. 

Proving that he's come full circle, 1D pop star Louis Tomlinson is said to have nabbed one of the much sought-after seats.

Joining him will be the highly exciting line-up of  Robbie Williams, his wife Ayda Field and of course, Mr Simon Cowell.

Now if that's not a reason to tune in, we don't know what is. 

According to The Mirror, ''Louis is very much a part of the X Factor family.''

“He’s a close friend of the show and would make a brilliant judge. Simon mentored One Direction and signed them to Syco Records. Simon hopes the deal will be done in the next few days.”

His addition will make the panel three men and one woman for the first time in the competition's 15-year history.

Social media's reaction to the news was as we'd expect…tumbleweed. 

However, there were a few people who had their say, tweeting, ''oh god what a FLOP'' and ''I have no interest in X Factor anymore, it's gone really down hill. But IF this is true than I will be watching only for Louis.'' 

So it seems that this might draw in some much-needed ratings.

The 15th series is getting underway with auditions starting on July 18 at Wembley Arena in London, so expect it all to come crashing back onto our screens in a matter of weeks.


Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has said that he supports President Donald Trump's criticism from the press. 

The remarks were reportedly made at a private lunch held in New York on Monday. 

The event, hosted by Irish Consul General Ciaran Madden, was for young Irish workers across various sectors in New York City.

According to The Times,  when asked what he thought of Trump's attack on the US press, Leo said that the media was not interested in the truth but only in getting a story.

He was particularly scathing of political journalists, who he claimed were more interested in gossip rather than what the Government is actually doing. 

Reportedly a heated exchange followed as other members pointed out that the media had unearthed the Weinstein sexual assault allegations among other controversies. 

Social media had a strong reaction to Leo's comments, as some agreed with the Taoiseach while others were outraged that he had sided with Trump. 

Some were quick to jump to his defence, saying, ''you can criticise the media while supporting free speech. Taoiseach's points taken out of context imo.''

Others were not so understanding, stating that the whole episode was a ''strange, unsettling criticism of the media by our Taoiseach.'' 

According to RTE News, NUJ Irish General Secretary Seamus Dooley said it was ''bizarre'' that the Taoiseach would side with such a divisive political figure. 

Leo later said that his comments were ''taken out of context.''  

A spokesperson said that the Taoiseach "believes that a free, fair and balanced press is a cornerstone of our democracy".

Judging by the furore on Twitter, it seems like Leo might have a bit more explaining to do…



Social media may come with its ups and downs, but we can't help smiling when we think of how it's connected us to others.

Twitter, in particular, has been a way for people to forge relationships across the globe.

We may be looking for people similar to us who we can identify with, or those who are much different so we can learn from them.

Now, Twitter is celebrating the beauty of Pride and the love shown for people of every gender, orientation and identity.

Hashtags like #LoveIsLove, #BornThisWay, and #MarriageEquality are used worldwide as rallying cries for equality.

Twitter is hoping to continue championing equality, and this year are using a new rainbow heart emoji to celebrate #Pride.

The hashtags that trigger the special emoji are #Pride, #Pride2018, #LoveIsLove, #PrideParade, and #LoveWins (in Spanish, French, Chinese, and Russian, too).

So what are you waiting for? Go spread the love!



It's not just us humans that are showing our support for LGBTQ Pride this month, oh no sir. These gorgeous dogs got in on the action and we can all agree that pooches decked out in rainbow attire are the cutest things ever. #PrideMonthPuppo

The Twitter trend was kick-started by WeRateDogs, and they've been showing snaps of the cutest four-legged creatures dressed up in all the colours of the rainbow. And we couldn't be happier. Supporting LGBTQ rights? Cute dogs in capes? Done.

The account, which was founded by Matt Nelson in 2015, was set up to rate other people's pooches. However, he asked his 6.8million followers to send in pictures of their Pride-supporting hounds for WeRateDogs to rate and repost.

Anything that brings positive attention and support for a cause like LGBTQ rights is a winner in our book. Plus it doesn't hurt that these doggos are absolutely gorgeous to look at. 

Twitter users quickly responded with images of their dogs rocking rainbow caps, wings, ties, bandanas and capes. One tweeted, ''Again? Seriously? We only rate dogs. Please don’t send in any downright magnificent butterflies,'' while another posted their dog Bacon draped in rainbow wings and tassels. 

Pride has been honoured throughout the month of June in commemoration of the Stonewall Riots of 1969 and this week, Dublin Pride has kicked off. 

If you want to join in the Pride festivities and have a furry friend on hand, festoon them in rainbow accessories with the hashtag #PrideMonthPuppo, and tweet it out. People have been really getting on board with the hashtag –  just look at this tutu!

Dublin Pride's main event – the Pride Parade –  takes place this Saturday, June 30th. In the meantime, join us by having a scroll through the hashtag – like c'mon, how adorable are they?! 



Nope, we're not having it. 

This is the new Ugliest Dog in the World- Zsa Zsa, a nine-year-old English bulldog. I'm sorry, but that dog is adorable. 

When news of this broke, Twitter erupted with a tsunami of outraged tweets in response to Zsa Zsa's new title. Users did not seem to agree with the outcome of the contest and were quick to jump to Zsa Zsa's defence, claiming that she was, in fact, "the cutest."


The proud owner, Megan Brainard of Anoka, Minnesota, will receive $1,500(€1300) for the winning the contest. 

Zsa Zsa's human is loving the overwhelmingly positive response that Zsa Zsa was receiving on Twitter. According to The Star Tribune, she said that "“She is just so ugly, she’s beautiful." 


While the dogs are not the most aesthetically-pleasing, Twitter really rallied behind them, showering them with love –  whoever said that lolling tongues, squished faces and hairless bodies weren't cute?!

We can all agree that though she may be a winner of the Ugly Dog Crown, Zsa Zsa is the cutest ugly dog we have ever seen?! 


Nadine Coyle is a national treasure, and like with all people we love, sometimes a good-natured slagging is merited.

From her aversion to her own birth date to her revelations about Girls Aloud, Nadine is an icon with an outrageously MEME-able history. 

Now, a clip of her saying one particular word has been circulating the internet in a viral manner.

Back in 2010 Nadine Coyle appeared on Sunday Brunch, and the clip has resurfaced. 

In the clip, Nadine tells the hosts that she prefers cooking savory dishes, saying: 

'Working with flour and making sweet things I'm not so used to.'

It's her pronunciation of the word 'flour' that has the clip going viral. 

Comedian Sam Lake took the joke to a new level, creating a remix of Nadine's now iconic pronunciation with Little Mix's hit song Power. 

We are falling around the place laughing it this!

Here's the full segment if you want to give it a watch:
