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 out to help you relive the magic of your 90s childhood with a brand new Oh Oh My Disney 90s Flashback collection and we’re totally 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.) 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’ and they’ve definitely delivered on that count. I’ll take one A Goofy Movie! VHS clutch bag and a Hercules mug, 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.

Maisie Williams opens up about her final scene in Game of Thrones

Maisie Williams opens up about her final scene in Game of Thrones


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.’

This is what shopping will look like in 25 years and it’s slightly scary

This is what shopping will look like in 25 years and it’s slightly scary


carrie bradshaw wedding dress

Remember when you thought Cher’s clothes-matching computer closet was as modern as it got? Well you ain’t seen nothing yet, according to a new future trends report.

To celebrate its 25th birthday, QVC UK worked with the The Future Laboratory to predict how technological advances such as AI and drones will affect our shopping habits in 25 years, and it’s insightful and slightly scary.

For example, the high-street as we know it will probably no longer exist, as more and more people shop online (just 0.5% of the population had access to the internet 25 years ago, now 51% of shoppers prefer to shop online).

By the 2040s, virtual and augmented reality are predicted to take over, so expect hyper-experiential virtual showrooms, complete with holographic products and people, Blade Runner style.

In fact, forget shops, as you’ll apparently be able to shop from your car (!). According to the report, ‘cars will be transformed into moving living rooms, where shoppers will be able to consume video content and be able to purchase items of interest through simple voice commands or hand gestures.’

On the plus side though, no more waiting ages for your order to arrive, as anything less that a 24-hour delivery will be obsolete, as with the use of drones, you could get it between minutes and hours.

No more ill-fitting clothes either, as you’ll be able to measure yourself at home using apps on your iPhone, which certain retailers like L.K.Bennett have introduced in their fitting rooms already.

Beauty brands will also start to develop other sensory experiences in a digital setting that will allow consumers to smell products, and your fridge will never be empty again, as they will automatically be re-stocked based on customers’ shopping preferences. Genius.

This is the one food Meghan Markle refused to eat in Australia

This is the one food Meghan Markle refused to eat in Australia


The Duchess declined to try one thing during a lunch in Melbourne

Earlier this week, Kensington Palace announced that Meghan Markle is pregnant and all eyes have been on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex ever since.

The newlyweds are preparing to welcome their first child, and while the gender of the royal baby will be a closely guarded secret, Harry has already revealed which girl’s name he likes. Meghan has also opened up about her pregnancy, revealing that she is ‘feeling pretty good’ and ‘running on adrenaline’.

The news came as Harry and Meghan touched down in Sydney, Australia as part of a 16-day royal tour, and so far they have been spotted looking loved-up under umbrellas and strolling along the beach (seriously, just look at their cutest moments – the pictures will melt your heart).

And while we know that Meghan has been making banana bread for her hosts, there is one thing that she refused to eat during a trip to Melbourne.

On Thursday, Harry and Meghan visited a restaurant called Charcoal Lane to try some native Australian foods and were given a ‘touch, taste, smell’ experience.

Apprentice chef Brooke Warr revealed that there was something that the Duchess was reluctant to try.

She told News.com.au: ‘With the finger limes, they’re like little caviars. When you eat it in your mouth it pops and the flavour is beautiful.

‘It was optional if they wanted to taste it. Harry did but Meghan didn’t. She was smelling it, but that’s understandable because she’s pregnant and being cautious.’

Program manager Troy Crellin also admitted that Harry declined to try something on the menu, too.

He said: ‘Harry tried some [of the ingredients] but he wasn’t game to try the pepper leaf, which is what we tend to give to the naughty kids anyway. It’s a little bit hot.’

Maybe next time!

Kate Middleton’s adorable reaction to her children at Princess Eugenie’s wedding

Kate Middleton’s adorable reaction to her children at Princess Eugenie’s wedding


And in that moment, we were all Prince Harry.

All eyes were on Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank at their nuptials last week and with good reason: the pair were absolutely adorable. From Jack Brooksbank putting on his glasses, just to see her in all her beauty gliding down the aisle, to the powerful statement she made sharing her scoliosis scars with the world, they were absolutely lovely to watch.

Now that time has passed however, keen royalists have pored over the footage and uncovered a little gem we hadn’t previously noticed before. One Twitter account honed in on Kate Middleton’s reaction to her children walking down the aisle and honestly, it made our hearts melt.

Prince George and Princess Charlotte were both given the important task of being in Princess Eugenie’s bridal party. Decked out in stylish threads and bumbling behind the bride, it was impossible not to smile the moment they stepped into the church.

We weren’t the only ones however as Kate was the proudest mum ever, breaking out into a massive grin and leaning forwards to get a good look at them. A Twitter account called RoyalSourceFR luckily caught the moment and we’ve been playing the GIF on repeat since we spotted it.

We’re here for this lovely, wholesome content. We’re also totally here for the way Prince Harry snaps right to her with a big old grin on his own face as well, proving he’s just as proud of his niece and nephew as she is.

There’s a few other gems in the GIF, including the way that Princess Beatrice sticks a couple of big thumbs up at the bridal party as they trail along behind Eugenie.

And then there’s also Prince William’s reaction – or rather, his total non-reaction – which we find pretty hilarious.

We get it, Wills. Eugenie and Jack were beautiful to watch and we found it hard to look away too.

Meghan Markle just wore a pair of shoes the Queen isn’t a fan of

Meghan Markle just wore a pair of shoes the Queen isn’t a fan of


Meghan Markle has been killing it with her Australian tour wardrobe, especially the outfit that was a subtle tribute to Diana.

Yesterday, she looked holiday-ready in her stripy Martin Grant dress to visit Bondi beach with Prince Harry, which she accessorised with a traditional floral garland.

However, her choice of shoes might not have gone down to well with the Queen: Meghan chose wedges.

Apparently the Queen isn’t a fan, and that’s why Kate Middleton avoids wearing them when she sees her.

A source previously told Vanity Fair, ‘The Queen isn’t a fan of wedged shoes,’ a source told Vanity Fair. ‘She really doesn’t like them and it’s well known among the women in the family.’

However, I’m sure the Queen wouldn’t mind the Duchess wearing shoes that are comfortable to walk in on sand. Plus, they go with her outfit really well, so…
