Remember back in the 90s when you would slam your Disney VHS tapes into the machine and watch Hercules or The Lion King over and over again? Kids nowadays won’t ever know the frustration of having a tape get stuck in the machine or manually rewinding a tape with a pen. Well, the house of Mouse is out to help you relive the magic of your 90s childhood with a brand new Oh Oh My Disney 90s Flashback collection. Safe to say, we’re obsessed.

It’s jam packed with scenes from our favourite 90s films, ranging from popular flicks like Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin through to more niche choices like Hercules and A Goofy Movie!. (I still stand by the fact that Eye to Eye from A Goofy Movie! is the best Disney song of all time. Get to know it if you haven’t already.) From cool magic carpet denim jackets through to bits and pieces we’re 150% sure we had in our house growing up, we want all of it and luckily it’s dropped online already.

According to Oh My Disney, the line was ‘inspired by the decade‘ and aims to celebrate some of their ‘favourite animated Disney classics from the ’90s’. They’ve definitely delivered on that count. I’ll take one A Goofy Movie! VHS clutch bag and a Beauty and the Beast cup, thanks.

Here’s our favourite bits below…

Kate Middleton and Prince William threw a secret event in Kensington Palace

Kate Middleton and Prince William threw a secret event in Kensington Palace


And everyone’s getting FOMO.

With soon-to-be parents Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on their royal tour in Australia and Pippa Middleton welcoming a baby just this week, the attention has been off Kate Middleton and Prince William.

In fact, we’ve hardly seen the Duchess of Cambridge this year, with Kate taking a maternity leave after the birth of Prince Louis, returning to royal duties just this month.

But given the attention on other members of the royal family, Kate and William managed to throw a secret party in Kensington Palace this week, with the public and press only finding out after the occasion.

The event in question was work-related – a surprise reception for the finalists of this year’s BBC Radio One’s Teen Hero Awards at their Kensington Palace home.

The couple reportedly welcomed teenage finalists to the reception, talking to them about their work as Teen Heroes of 2018.

‘It was such an honour and privilege to meet the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge at Kensington Palace,’ one of the winners, Siena Castellon, explained to HELLO!. ‘They were both genuinely interested in my website, www.QLMentoring.com, which I created to support and mentor autistic students and students with learning disabilities.’

She continued: ’The Duchess was especially interested in addressing autism stereotypes and was saddened to hear about the severity of the disability-related bullying I have experienced. She congratulated me for being a Diana Award holder and for currently serving on the National Youth Board, a role that has given me a national platform through which to share my disability-based bullying experience. They were both incredibly warm, supportive and encouraging. Meeting them was an awesome experience! They have inspired me continue to make a positive difference in my community.’

The BBC Radio One Teen Awards Ceremony will take place on Sunday, hosted by Greg James.

In another universe, Peter Dinklage played Anastasia Steele in 50 Shades

In another universe, Peter Dinklage played Anastasia Steele in 50 Shades


‘I nailed it. I really did.’

Love or hate the series, Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan have become one of the world’s most recognisable faces thanks to the success of 50 Shades of Grey. The steamy and sometimes eye-rolling escapades of their characters Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey have become pretty infamous, though there’s one adaptation I need to see immediately. It turns out that off-camera, Jamie Dornan played out the series’ intimate scenes while separated from his co-star with an unexpected celeb – Peter Dinklage. Yes, that Game of Thrones Peter Dinklage.

While promoting his and Jamie Dornan’s new film My Dinner with Hervé, Peter Dinklage revealed that Jamie actually had to juggle filming with 50 Shades reshoots. As any good pal would, Peter decided to step in and help Jamie prep in a pretty unusual way.

Peter said on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, ‘I read some of the [50 Shades Freed] screenplay through in our dressing room.’

‘I went in, [Jamie] had to do some reshoots for 50 Shades and I – uh – would help him out learning lines,’ he revealed.

Now, you can probably guess where this is going. And to be honest, the rest of the audience did too as people erupted into fits of giggles.

He continued, ‘I would read the Dakota Johnson parts…I was just helping a friend learn lines.’

We need to see a spin-off film with Tyrion Lannister and Christian Grey whispering sweet nothings to one another ASAP. We don’t know who we need to talk to in order to make this happen, but if the gods and goddesses of cinema are listening – please, please make this a reality.

As for whether Peter Dinklage gave Dakota a run for his money? Well, he had a lot to say for himself.

He said, ‘I nailed it. I really did.’

We don’t doubt it. We mean, look at how enamoured Jamie Dornan is with him.

Peter Dinklage and Jamie Dornan will be starring in a dedidedly less sexy film coming out on HBO called My Dinner with Hervé, which centres around the last interview the actor Hervé Villechaize ever gave.

It is set to premiere on Sky Atlantic on October 22 at 9pm.

Spoilers are coming

Game of Thrones will return next year for its final season, and while some of the cast have spoken about how it felt to shoot their final scenes, they’ve been super secretive about what’s actually in store for some of our fave characters.

Can Sansa Stark really be trusted? Where’s Jaime Lannister off to? What’s going to happen when Jon Snow and Daenerys find out they’re related? And has Arya Stark’s bag of faces reached full capacity?

Enter Maisie Williams, who has revealed exactly what happened when she filmed her last scene as Arya.

The young Stark has seen/done/killed a lot over the last seven years, and while we’re all rooting for the King of the North and co to end up as one big, happy family, fans of the show aren’t getting their hopes up. After all, look what happened to poor old Rob Stark when we thought he was getting a happy ending.

So will Arya meet a similar grisly fate?

Here’s what she told The Guardian about filming her final scene for the show – describing it as ‘beautiful’.

‘I ended on the perfect scene,’ she revealed.

‘I was alone—shocker! Arya’s always bloody alone. But I was alone and I had watched a lot of other people wrap. I knew the drill, I had seen the tears and heard the speeches.’

Maisie then went on to explain that as it all came to an end, she decided to give a final speech.

‘It wasn’t something I planned. But in that moment I realised what the show meant to me.’

Why was Arya alone? Does that mean she won’t make it to the end? And who will inherit her bag of faces?

So many questions.

Game of Thrones, you can come back to us now, thanks.

Strictly Come Dancing’s Dianne Buswell has sadly split from her boyfriend

Strictly Come Dancing’s Dianne Buswell has sadly split from her boyfriend


Hopefully her dance partner Joe Sugg will be a shoulder for her to lean on.

It hasn’t been a great couple of weeks for romances on the Strictly Come Dancing circuit, as fresh off Rebecca Humphries’ split from contestant Seann Walsh – another person on the show has called time on their relationship. They say it takes two to tango, but Strictly pro Dianne Buswell has chosen to go it alone after splitting with her on-off boyfriend Anthony Quinlan of Emmerdale.

According to Her.ie, a spokesperson for Dianne confirmed the split. They elaborated, ‘Due to their busy schedules and distance they have split but still remain really close friends.’

According to The Evening Standard, their ‘struggles with long-distance’ also contributed to the downfall of their relationship In fact, The Sun reported that they actually took a break earlier this year for that very same reason and while they did eventually get back together, they ‘decided to end things after 10 months of dating‘.

Many outlets have previously reported on the ‘Strictly curse’, as celebs and pros on the reality TV show sadly have a tendency to split with their partners while filming. In fact, it’s already affected this year’s cycle as comedian Seann Walsh was spotted cheating on his then-girlfriend Rebecca Humphries with his partner Katya Jones – prompting Rebecca to break up with him and release a powerful statement. On the other hand, Katya Jones said on It Takes Two that she and her husband Neil Jones ‘are fine’.

Prior to filming this series, it was also announced that one of Strictly’s favourite pro couples Karen and Kevin Clifton would be separating. Sadly, the reason their marriage was on the rocks was pretty similar to Dianne’s own predicament as their demanding Strictly schedules took a major toll – even though they were technically working together.

Karen said to The Daily Mail, ‘We were working from 6am until 11pm and by the time we got home there would be no time to do anything. There was no opportunity for us to connect and we started going in completely different directions.’

In Dianne’s case, a few have started speculating that perhaps she and her current Strictly partner Joe Sugg might be thinking about pursuing a relationship. (Give the woman a break man, she literally just broke up with her boyfriend.) The Sun in particular claimed that a source told them how everyone on set had been ‘discussing how close [Joe and Dianne] had become’.

They continued, ‘It did not go unnoticed by Anthony’.

Whether there’s something there or not, she and the famous YouTuber do seem to be growing closer and get on like a house on fire.

Besides absolutely nailing their dance routines week after week, they feature quite prominently on one another’s social media – in fact, she could have a budding YouTube career of her own as she’s starred in many of his vlogs.

Given that the pair seem to be pretty great friends, here’s hoping Joe and the rest of the Strictly crew will be able to help keep her mind off the breakup.

The next episode of Strictly Come Dancing will air tomorrow at 6.45pm on BBC One.

Here’s everything you need to know about Melania Trump’s plane incident

Here’s everything you need to know about Melania Trump’s plane incident


Melania Trump

Melania Trump is one of the most talked about people in the world, and from her controversial fashion choices to her rules within the White House walls, she never fails to make viral news.

This week however, the First Lady hit the headlines for a different reason as it was reported that there had been an incident onboard her plane.

The airplane carrying the first lady to Washington was forced to turn back on Wednesday 15 minutes into the journey, with journalists onboard reporting smoke appearing in the cabin and the smell of burning.

According to CNN, the passengers were instructed to hold wet towels over their faces if it got worse, with the plane returning to Joint Base Andrews, an air force facility used by the White House.

While Melania Trump did not speak about the incident, her rep, Stephanie Grisham, confirmed it to USA TODAY, explaining that there had been a ‘minor mechanical issue’ onboard the Boeing C-32A. ‘Everything is fine and everyone is safe’.

Donald Trump later spoke about the unscheduled landing of his wife’s plane in a conversation with the Fox Business Network.

‘They came back. She got in another plane,’ he explained. ‘I said, “I hope this plane’s better than the first one”’.

‘Everything is fine and everyone is safe.’

Great British Bake Off’s Ruby just accidentally revealed this year’s winner

Not again!

Great British Bake Off is a staple of British TV, with the nation spending weeks speculating as to who is going to be crowned baker.

This year as we approach the semi-final, it’s between Ruby, Kim-Joy, Briony and of course the nation’s sweetheart, Rahul.

At this point in the competition, any one of the talented bakers could take home the trophy, with fans counting down the days till the final episode.

In some very surprising Bake Off news however, it seems that the winner has already been revealed.

According to reports, GBBO semi-finalist Ruby Bhogal was tricked into revealing the winner by a fake Sandi Toksvig account, who texted the 29-year-old posing as the presenter.

In the messages, Ruby is reported to have accidentally revealed the winner, before explaining that she was ‘very happy’ for the victor.

‘It’s actually pretty easy to do really,’ the anonymous imposter told The Sun. ‘You just make a fake profile of one of their friends and then they follow you. You then change your name and message them and they have no clue.’

The fake account has been suspended but the real surprise is that the imposter has chosen not to share the name of the winner publicly.

This is of course not the first time the Great British Bake Off winner has been announced prematurely, with new judge restauranteur Prue Leith accidentally revealing last year’s crowned baker ahead of the final due to a scheduled Twitter mishap.

At least we don’t know who the champion is yet!

The new headphones have been created especially for Mickey Mouse’s 90th anniversary and unsurprisingly, he’s plastered all over the wireless headphones.

The headphones also come with a cute anniversary pin, sticker and a sleek felt case (because something this adorable needs to be protected). You also don’t have to worry about any fiddly cables getting in the way as it’s totally wireless, meaning you can leave your phone on the table and go about your business in the house without lugging your tech around. And you know what that means: impromptu vacuuming dance party.

The headphones aren’t available just yet, but you’ll be able to snag a pair of your very own on November 11.

This is the important reason why Kate Middleton hasn’t met her new nephew yet

This is the important reason why Kate Middleton hasn’t met her new nephew yet


And we kind of get it…

REX

The Duchess of Cambridge’s past year has undoubtedly been busier than most and she has had a lot on her plate.

Giving birth to a baby prince and introducing him to the world hours later in heels and perfect make up would be enough. But she has also had her wedding anniversary, the Queen’s two birthdays and not one but two royal weddings to prepare for.

Not to mention, her sister Pippa Middleton’s pregnancy, with the 35-year-old giving birth to a baby boy just this week.

It’s hardly surprising therefore that the Duchess of Sussex and her nephew haven’t yet met.

Because, well, she’s very busy.

Since coming back from maternity leave this month, Kate has had function after function, in and out of meeting with charity initiatives, as well as looking after her three children – including a newborn.

And with Pippa still residing in the Lindo Wing where she gave birth to the currently unnamed newborn on Monday, it makes sense that Kate would wait a couple of days to pay her sister and nephew a visit.

We can’t wait to see the family photos when she does – and hear the baby name!

Congratulations again to Pippa and James!

Meghan Markle made these very special presents to give out on tour


We can’t deal.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have only been on tour for a matter of days and already they’ve made more of a storm than virtually any royal on any royal tour ever.

From the announcement of their Spring baby and their sweet public displays of affection under the umbrella to the viral videos of them hugging children, the now Duke and Duchess of Sussex are making a very good impression.

But being them, they even went one step further, with Meghan actually hand-making gifts for the people the couple were set to visit.

What did she make? Banana bread.

That’s right. She may be Duchess of Sussex (and about four months pregnant) but the 37-year-old is still said to have stayed up on one of her first nights in Australia to bake gifts for a family that were hosting them on their farm in Dubbo.

According to Meghan if you go to someone else’s house you should always take something with you, with the Duchess bringing a tin of Fortnum & Mason Royal Blend tea with the banana bread.

But according to Harry, Meghan was ‘worried that she’s put too many bananas in it’, something he insisted wasn’t possible, announcing: ’There are never too many bananas.’

Meghan, please can you make us some banana bread too?
