It's a modern-day Christmas classic that everyone loves. 

It's Richard Curtis being the most Richard Curtis he can be and it has a stellar cast that includes everyone from Emma Thompson to Mr Bean to Bill Nighy as an old rock star trying to cling onto his music career.

What more could you want in a festive flick?

However, there has been murmurings that there is a few questionable plot lines going on in Love Actually.

And now actor Gabriel Bisset-Smith has taken to social media to point one of them out.

He wrote, ''It’s that time of year where we all have to remember that Love Actually has THREE separate storylines about old men sleeping with women who work for them. #romance.''

The 2003 movie is made up of an ensemble cast and their intertwining stories in the lead up to Christmas. 

Gabriel addresses three sub-plots in the movie that all are centred on older men having relationships with younger women that they work with – and all the men are their bosses.

There is Natalie (Martine McCutcheon), a secretary to the Prime Minster (Hugh Grant), Portuguese Aurelia, a housekeeper to heartbroken Jamie (Colin Firth) and Harry (Alan Rickman) who is having an emotional affair with his employee Mia (Heike Makatch).

Gabriel's post started a conversation about these sub-plots. 

One wrote, ''I fail to see your point. A significant percentage of romantic relationships begin ‘in the workplace’, so this is merely an accurate representation' to which someone replied, ''It's the power imbalance that is the issue.''

While another commented, ''Unless we are saying that no two people who work together or have ever worked together can have a relationship under any circumstances.''

Hmmmm, we're not entirely convinced – what do you think?

Ever wondered what happened to all of those tasty treats in the I'm A Celebrity camp that are lost when camp mates fail the Dingo Dollar Challenge?

Well, wonder no more.

Co-host Dec Donnelly has just spilled the beans – and it's something that hungry camp mates don't want to know.

While some might assume that the crisps or cheese and crackers get thrown out or gorged on by Holly and Dec, it isn't either of those.

It turns out that it is the lucky crew that get to enjoy the scrumptious goodies.

It was revealed when Dec was chatting to fans on Twitter.

One wrote, ''@antanddec what happens to the treats that the camp mates don’t win do you and @hollywills get to munch? #imaceleb.''

Dec replied,'They never make it to us. Crew get there first.''

The news comes as Vamps popstar James McVey is the latest camp mate to get the boot from the show.

On leaving the jungle, he said, ''I’m so happy its been the toughest thing I’ve ever done and I’m over the moon to have done it.”

He also revealed that he struggled with Nick Knowles being voted off the day before.

He said, ''I saw Nick as a father figure during this process and I was really inspired by everything he did. I was struggling without having that figure to look up to.''

I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! continues tonight at 9pm on ITV.

Sarah Hyland has left social media following the bullying she experienced online in the aftermath of her cousin's tragic death.

Her 14-year-old relative lost her life in a heart-breaking car accident over the weekend.

The actress uploaded a Go Fund Me page to her Twitter, stating that a man named Jeffrey Eggerling was the driver who hit her uncle's car, and he tried to run from the scene.

"Jeffrey Eggerling is a murderer. May he rot in hell."

She also asked if her fans could donate to the page to help pay for funeral expenses of her 14-year-old cousin, which backfired.

The backlash came when Twitter users angrily stated that she could afford to pay for the funeral from her own salary, and that there was no need to ask others to contribute.

In a series of tweets, the Modern Family star explained the sense of grief and pain which her cousin's death brought, which was exacerbated by online trolls;

She continued; saying "your horrible negative ignorant words have broken me. Happy? Staying offline for a while."

She presumably has contractual obligations to promote her TV show, so the exception to her social media hiatus is for this purpose only.

Some Twitter users declared that because her net worth is roughly $9 million, she should pay for the funeral herself rather than asking her fans for money which they may not have;

Others claimed that we don't actually know what her assets are, and presumably she has already contributed to the funeral costs, which is no one's business.

Many fans rallied behind her during this tough time, and we agree that when someone is mourning a great loss, attacking their net worth is just a low blow.

We hope she can get through this difficult period in her life, and offer condolences for her cousin's death.

According to GQ, boot-cut jeans are all set for a major comeback, and we have no idea how we're feeling right now tbh. People have thoughts… bad thoughts…

Over a decade ago, both men and women were wearing flared-style jeans 24/7, and boot-cut denim officially hit the mainstream. This was a time where even the ugliest items were considered fashion, e.g. Ed Hardy and Von Dutch.

That being said, who are we to judge? Our era is one of UGG boots, the dreaded 'athleisure' (tracksuits and sports leggings as fashion) and jeans with cut outs just below the booty area. 

The silhouette essentially disappeared from fashion after a few cycles, and then skinny jeans become the token item of denim furore, and more recently by baggy styles in alternate shapes and sizes.

Nostalgia comes and goes, as we have learned recently by the onslaught of 1990s comebacks from Westlife, Boyzone and the Spice Girls.

Balenciaga designer Demna Gvasalia has included the boot-cut jean in the brand’s spring lookbook, which roughly translates to the fact that a COMEBACK is in sight. *Shivers*

The reaction to this controversial apparel news has been quite hilarious, with reigning Queen of Twitter Chrissy Teigen even making a quip;

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Eww #chrissyteigen #bootcutjeans #commentsbychrissy #commentsbychrissyteigen

A post shared by Commentsbychrissyteigen (@commentsbychrissyteigen) on

It's not hard to see why Gvasalia may have chosen the current designer climate to resurrect the style of denim, 2018 has seen a total pants revolution within menswear especially.

Contemporary cargo pants, pleated trousers and blinged-up chinos are proving that men are willing to step out of their couture comfort zone.

Gvasalia is the major designer who has elevated the bulky dad sneaker into a high-fashion item, so if anyone is capable of reviving the trend and somehow making it less of a faux pas, it's this talented man.

The designer has permanently cemented his status as the one to watch for every season, purely based on unpredictability and his gift for bringing 'normcore' items back.

Twitter, however, are NOT impressed with the attempt to bring boot-cut jeans back. 

The jeans taper at the knee like your common modern-fit denim, but then flare out at the bottom of the pant leg, which allegedly seems to OFFEND certain people…

 There's still time to stop this before it gets seriously out of hand.

We propose a fashion intervention, before… God help us… LOW-CUT jeans try and make a comeback as well.

They need to die a slow death, no one wants to see that.

World-renowned footballer Ada Hegerberg had just been crowned the first ever female recipient of the Ballon d'Or award, which essentially is a marker that you are the best player IN THE WORLD btw, when French DJ Martin Solveig put his foot in it.

He created a hugely awkward moment on stage when he asked the gifted player if she could 'twerk', to which she curtly responded with a simple 'No'.

We probably would have responded in a much less classy manner, but that's a testament to how much sexism she has presumably had to deal with as a female footballer.

The 42-year-old DJ claimed that the Lyon and Norway superstar forward, despite answering "no" – had told him after the ceremony that she "understood it was a joke".

Hegerberg also told BBC Sport she "didn't consider it sexual harassment" after the 23-year-old was recognised as the world's best player in Paris

It was all the more awkward seeing as the footballer's speech was referencing her hopes of inspiring girls to believe in themselves.

The reaction on social media was swift and furious, with tennis player Andy Murray commenting on the matter; "Another example of the ridiculous sexism that still exists in sport."

"To everyone who thinks people are overreacting and it was just a joke… it wasn't. I've been involved in sport my whole life and the level of sexism is unreal."

Solveig took to Twitter to express his apologies, but claimed that it was a total misunderstanding.

He also uploaded a video, claiming that anyone who has known him for a while is aware of his respect for women, and that it was taken out of context;

We don't quite know what to think of this one.

Do you think the question was out of line, and that Murray is right in saying that sexism still exists in sport?

Or do you think this all blown way out of proportion?

There's not many times in my life when I'm properly speechless.

But now is one of them.

Two early '00s icons – Ron Weasley and Georgia from Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging are a real-life couple.

Yes.

But that's not all, oh no.

They have been an on/off thing for SEVEN YEARS.

That's since 2011.

How did we not notice?

How, with all of our hours of dedicated celeb stalking did we miss this glorious union?

I'm disappointed in us. 

The pair were first linked in 2011 and have been snapped together many times since – even in September at the Dinard Film Festival. 

And it seems that 26-year-old Georgia may be The One as Rupert has said that he is looking to settle down.

He revealed, ''Turning 30 felt strange. It just doesn't feel like I’m there yet and I don’t know what the future holds. I’m just going to go with the flow, keep playing interesting characters and see what happens. I’d like to settle down and have kids soon.''

We are still reeling…

I'm sure we've all told our parents how embarrassing we think they are, how they mortify us beyond the valley of shame for merely existing.

Normally most of the things they do genuinely aren't embarrassing, we're just being dramatic.

In this case, however: one Twitter user explained a genuinely unfortunate mishap which happened when her mother was selling a wardrobe… and it's HILARIOUS.

Sophie Eke captioned the image: "Nice one mum", with texts from a buyer who reportedly could see her poor mums' boobs in the mirror of the item up for sale.

The buyer texted Julie saying: "Hi Julie, I don't mean to sound rude but just thought I'd let you know as I noticed straight away… the photo you uploaded of the wardrobes, I'm unsure if its what I think but it seems that there are some boobs in the mirror!"

"Sorry just wanted to let you know xxx"

Thank God, her daughter didn't upload the full X-rated image, but the tweet has since gone viral. It has been retweeted over 28k times and has over 100k likes, our mums would MURDER us for this.

We wonder what Julie thinks of the whole thing?

We hope she finds it funny, otherwise she might be pretty damn mad (understandably) with her daughter for putting the tweet up about her in the first place. 

It just goes to show, be careful what you put on the internet gals, and maybe check your photos for any nudity BEFORE you upload them?

It might not have arrived yet, but already we can feel that Ariana Grande's Thank You, Next video is gonna be iconic.

I mean, it's Mean Girls-themed – enough said tbh. 

And now she had dropped a teaser for the vid and Aaron Samuels steals the show.

The 2004 classic teen movie is heavily parodies in the short clip, opening wth YouTube star Colleen Ballinger posing as a pregnant teenager.

Mirroring the cult classic LiLo movie, Collen says, “One time on Twitter, I heard that Ariana was pregnant, so I got pregnant so we could be pregnant at the same time.''

She continues, “Turns out it was just a rumour.”

Jonathan Bennet, who played Lindsay's love interest Aaron, also takes the p*ss out of another line from the movie when he says, “Ariana Grande told me my hair looked sexy pushed back. She’s not wrong.”

As well as all of that, there is even a a not-so-veiled ref to Ariana's engagement to Pete Davidson ending.

The 25-year-old has been teasing us on social media over the last few days, posting amazing pics from behind the scenes, dressed as Regina George and posing with the infamous Burn Book. 

And people are seriously excited about it.

One wrote, ''Can you release this shit already im tired of waiting.''

Another said, ''I am not kidding when i say EVERYONE is talking about this mv. family, friends, teachers, people on the train, podcasts, EVERYONE. she really is about to put out the mv of the decade, huh?''

A third said, ''THIS IS GONNA BE ICONIC IM SO FREAKIN READY.''

Thank U, Next is a massive hit for Ariana and looks set to hit its fourth consecutive week at number one in the UK singles chart.

Ah, childhood best friends. The ones you met on holiday, or at summer camp, or at the childminders become intrinsic parts of the tapestry of your personal history.

This is why, when Twitter user Brianna (@briannacry) took to the social media platform to find the bestie she met on a dinner cruise in 2006, the entire world jumped on board. 

An online search party was formed to find Bri's long-lost friend, and it only took mere hours to find her. 

Prepare the tissues:

Heii was asked how she managed to get on Twitter so quick to be found, and replied: 

'Most of the friends that alerted me I’ve known since middle school!! I don’t think I changed much in the time span between elementary and middle school, so that’s why.'

The pair of besties revealed that they are speaking privately and reconnecting thanks to the Twitter search. 

 

After being urged to meet up in real life, Heii said that due to her college commitments and financial situation, she would be unable to travel to meet Brianna any time soon. 

In true social media revolution style, a Go Fund Me page was instantly set up to raise €5,000 to help the pair reunite in real life. 

However, Heii warned those who were following the reunion to be cautious, as none of the Go Fund Me pages were set up by either girls.

Feverous Black Friday shoppers are HELLA p*ssed off as they are being forced to wait HOURS in online store queues.

Customers are being forced into virtual lines on store websites, yet retailers are claiming this was all properly planned… eh, what?

One man shared a screenshot on Twitter of his queue number: 107578th in line. Good God, people, this is utter madness.

It's fair to say that the eager online population are sufficiently angry, with complaints coming in left, right and centre for numerous brands, such as Debenhams.

A Debenhams spokesperson claimed that the system was "managed" and that customers have all been successful with their shopping experiences:

"Some customers experienced a short delay in accessing our website at peak hours last night."

"By implementing a managed 'queue system' we were able to ensure that once customers had accessed our site, they were all able shop the offers successfully."

Reports of thousands of websites crashing are also gaining traction on Twitter, it seems that online stores were hugely unprepared for the onslaught of consumerism which Black Friday brings:

Sky News were told by Game:

"Due to the volume of traffic to our site we are operating a queuing system to make it as fair as possible to our customers in getting the deals they want."

However, stores this morning on the high street were experiencing regular volumes of customers, with no queues in sight. It seems online shopping has officially taken over:

Remember gals, Black Friday is a massive marketing campaign, so try to resist the mania surrounding it.

Use deals websites to spot the best discounts, ask yourself if you really need the items and don't assume that just because it's on sale, it's a bargain.

Economically and environmentally conscious shopping needs to be a priority with the massive amounts of clothes going to waste.

Stay strong gals, resist the urge.

If you can't resist, we hope you get through the online queue hysteria at least.

Demi Lovato just stepped back into the social media ring to clap-back a fan who accused her of unfairly firing her back-up dancer.

The fan took to Twitter yesterday to call out Lovato's team, claiming their behaviour is "rotten" regarding the handling of the singer's altercation with her backup dancer.

Lovato shut down the fan for claiming that 'Dani', who spoke out about the star's recent overdose, should not have been fired.

According to Revelist, Dani Vitales, a backup dancer at the time, went to the press following Demi's drug overdose and trip to an L.A rehabilitation centre.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Dani Vitale (@danivitale) on

Dani Vitales, who was Lovato's longtime friend, then decided to write a lengthy statement on social media about the controversy, denying rumours that she supplied the singer with drugs:

“I have NEVER touched nor even SEEN a drug in my entire life,” Vitale, also 28, wrote on Instagram.

“I DO NOT DO DRUGS, nor would I ever encourage, or supply them to anyone I love.”

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Dani Vitale (@danivitale) on

Speaking about the painful emotions which she endured following the accusations, Vitale said, 

“The circulation of an UNTRUE story on the internet yanked my life, my reputation, my name and everything I have worked so hard to stand for, out from underneath me. A damaging narrative that demonized me, placed blame on me, and has since cost me so many wonderful moments in life.”

"I care about Demi just like all of you do. I have not said anything about this situation until now because her recovery has been of the most importance" 

"I was not with Demi when the incident happened, but I am with her now, and will continue to be because she means the world to me just as she does to all of you."

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by @commentsbycelebs on

On Thursday, a fan then took to Twitter and Instagram to write:

“It was completely unfair to fire dani, she’s one of the few who really cares about demi’s health and has been helping her for 3 years, she’s surrounded by people who only care about her money and she does not see it.”

The fan accused Lovato’s “team” of being “rotten,” commenting: “She does not realise it, needs a total change.”

We suspect the fan never thought Ms Lovato would actuallly see the tweet, but Demi saw it alright, and didn't hold back in the comments section:

“You have no idea what you’re talking about, ” later writing, “True friends don’t do interviews about you after you OD.”

Most readers speculated that she was referring to back-up dancer Dani Vitale, the 28-year-old singer quickly responded: “I’m not talking about Dani Vitale.”

Lovato might be referring instead to Danielle Martin,  her former trainer, who spoke out last week about severing ties with the singer:

“I lost my job for speaking up for her, to be honest,” Martin told Radar Online.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Flavinha (@lovato_kittens) on

“Pretty sad. I did nothing but empower her. Nothing bad to say. The people around her I’m sure were happy to run to her. They told her I was taking the situation and making it all about me. I’d never do that. Not ever. I was standing up for her. That’s all.”

It's pretty clear that Demi's fans are NOT here for Danielle:

Demi is currently back in LA and spending time with her mother, Dianna De La Garzia, as well as attending a sober living facility.

We hope this drama doesn't hinder her recovery, we need Demi back. Not just for her legendary clap-backs too.

Anne Hegerty has been on the receiving end of huge support and praise after her debut on I'm A Celebrity on Sunday night.

The 60-year-old, who is known for her role as The Governess on The Chase, has spoken out about being autistic.

Anne was diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome in 2007 when she was in her mid-forties.

She has discussed finding this out later on in life.

She said, "When you've grown up always knowing that there's something that seemed to be different about you from most people and not being able to understand until my mid-forties that what we were talking about here was autism, I’ve had to learn an awful lot about myself and what I can and can’t do and what I can or can’t cope with.''

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

The Yellow Team’s bond is already solid. Stay strong, Anne! #ImACeleb

A post shared by I'm A Celebrity… (@imacelebrity) on

She admits that she struggles with large social groups and is worried about how she will be able to cope in the jungle.

She said, “The show bosses seem more anxious about my autism than I do. They keep saying, ‘You must say if there’s a problem’, and I keep saying, ‘I’ll be fine.’ And they keep saying, ‘no no no that’s not good enough you have to promise if there’s a problem.'' 

She continued, “I might get peopled out, there might just be too many people around. I might feel like going to sit in the pool until everyone has shut up a bit. On the other hand, it might have advantages if I’m not as good as other people at picking up on bad atmospheres I’ll be happy drifting along.”

G'wan Anne. 

People are loving her on social media, and she's getting a huge amount of encouragement. 

One person wrote, ''From someone who also suffers from the same condition I can understand how much this is out her comfort zone and I am rooting for her so much! What a brave lady.'' 

Another said, ''Anyone who's abusing Anne Hegarty on I'm a Celebrity need to realise how far outside her comfort zone she is going as it isn't easy for people on the autistic spectrum to do these kinds of things.'' 

A third added, ''Anne Hegarty holds a special place in my heart, that woman is a gem.'' 

Anne did get teary-eyed when she entered the camp, saying, ''I’m really close to saying I can’t do this.''

She was then comforted by fellow camp mates Emily Atack and Fleur East.

We think that she is such an inspiration and will be rooting for her all the way – Anne for Queen of the Jungle.

I'm A Celebrity... continues tonight on ITV at 9pm.
