The popular dating reality-show ‘Love Island’ will be returning in just nine weeks’ time on the 6th of June and running for two extra weeks!

That’s right – fans of the series will be getting 10 weeks of the reality show’s eighth season as a new sexy, young cast are set to film the advert in only a fortnight. 

With a brand new villa in Mallorca, news portal ‘The Sun’ was informed that schedules are being put together as we speak, meaning fans can expect a long and hot summer of fun and drama. 

‘This series is going to be the longest ever and it’s from a brand new location so it’s all very exciting’ an insider source told the newsroom. The news of a brand new villa was confirmed by ITV back in February. 

Contestants filmed at the same Majorcan property for five years, but producers went on the hunt for a new space on the island to spruce up the show. The new villa is set to be ‘marvellous’, as described by media directors. 

Love Island’s 2021 finale saw 2.8 million viewers tuning in to see Liam Reardon and Millie Court crowned series champions. Given the cult-like fandom the show has now garnered, such a trend won’t be dying out anytime soon.

Will Smith has been banned from the Oscars gala and other Academy events for 10 years after he slapped presenter Chris Rock at the Oscars.

In a statement, The Academy said that the 94th Oscars ceremony had been “overshadowed by the unacceptable and harmful behaviour we saw Mr Smith exhibit on stage” , after Smith slapped Rock for joking about his wife’s shaved head – a result of the hair-loss condition alopecia. Less than an hour later, Will Smith was awarded the best actor award for his role in “King Richard”.

Smith has since apologised for his actions and resigned from the Academy.


PN’s strategy brought new faces ‘but not new votes’, says Clyde Puli

PN's strategy brought new faces 'but not new votes', says Clyde Puli
Apr 8 2022 Share

Former Nationalist Party secretary general Clyde Puli has stated that while the PN’s strategy to sideline members of the old guard may have worked to elect new faces but failed to win new votes.

In a recent Facebook post, Puli highlighted that while the PN gained a number of new MPs, it did not gain votes, shining a light on the PN’s 12,000 lost votes from 2017.

The seasoned politician argued that such a strategy impacted every district except the 2nd and 3rd, where Stephen Spiteri contested, with the first-elected PN candidate being a new face.

Puli did not contest the 2022 general election and together with Kristy Debono, Mario Galea and Claudio Grech, withdrew his candidature on the first day of the electoral campaign.
