Tom Daley's NAKED SNAP! Could this be a hint?

Tom Daley stole the hearts of women in England and the rest of the world as he delivered the most heart-warming bronze medal of the London Olympic Games. He then carried on to host the series SPLASH where he and his team coached stars into becoming divers, in spite of the fact they have had no previous experience in the sport, before being approached to partake in the show. Last year, the final episode attracted 6.5 million viewers where as a shocking 4.4 million tuned into this year’s, this followed onto provoking ITV to cancel the show for a third series.

It has been drawn to our attention that the new, upcoming series of ‘I’m a celebrity, get me out of here’ has confirmed Gemma Collins and Melanie Sykes to be entering the Jungle when the series airs on the 6th November. Britain’s sweetheart Tom Daley is rumoured to be one of the other eight. He posted this cheeky photo on his Instagram, captioned “#TBT fun ties in the jungle in Singapore at the youth Olympics 2010 with @megalycia94” Could this be a hint for what’s to come next?

Jason Derulo - Tattoos World Tour review! - Leeds O2 Academy.

Last week we went to one of our favourite venues, Leeds O2 Academy to see Jason Derulo and support act Conor Maynard. Jason is currently on his #TattoosWorldTour. To see such a worldwide star play such a small venue, was amazing. We'd never seen Jason Derulo before, so we weren't sure what to expect. The show was incredible!

Jason was supposed to perform at Leeds O2 academy on his last tour, but it was cancelled, because he broke one of the vertebrae in his neck. So he kept his promise and returned to perform here this time. Which was very admirable of him, because he could have easily sold out the arena, which is only a few feet away from the O2 academy.

Conor Maynard warmed up the crowd before Jason came on. He was pretty good for a support act, he could have probably played this venue all by himself. 

Jason's dancers could have also toured the world, as an act in their own right. Their performance was amazing. It's rare to see an artist travel with so many backing dancers, but we thought it really worked well for Jason.

Jason's singing was perfect, flawless even whilst he was dancing and doing hand stands. Some artists, when you see them at their own show, have 'filler' songs in-between their hits, where everyone kind of has to wait through it till we can get to the good stuff. It was completely the opposite at this concert, every song was fantastic. 

The show was definitely entertaining, great for a girls night out. At one point Jason and his dancers pulled a load of girls on stage to act as weights whilst they did push ups. Which definitely made those girls' nights. It was great to see an artist interact with fans at a show, rather than just only perform songs. 

Everyone on stage had so much energy and gave it their everything. It was an amazing show and we definitely recommend going to see Jason live. We'd definitely go again if we were given the chance!

Word Of Mouth tour review!

Following their decision to take a ‘break,’ The Wanted played the opening night of their Word Of Mouth arena tour last night at Liverpool Echo Arena. Playing songs from said album, Word Of Mouth and their other two albums, Battleground and The Wanted, the tour seemed to be kind of a farewell from the boys. ‘Highlights reels’ were played throughout the show in between songs. A look back of the last four years they’ve been together.

Upcoming acts Elyar Fox and The Vamps supported the lads, who both were amazing. Especially The Vamps, the crowd were singing along and going crazy.

The Wanted's set-list was as follows:

The tour was more relaxed than their other’s and felt more personal. They all had something to say in between songs.

The lads ended the night by thanking everyone. Their management, their family and friends, their band and lastly, their fans. Before ending with their two most sentimental songs, their first single All Time Low and most popular hit, Glad You Came.

Although their ‘break’ isn’t final, the tour felt like a goodbye. Whether we get five more tours from the boys or none, we’ll be happy. We felt incredibly nostalgic and emotional through the whole thing. We want to thank the lads for the past four years, for giving us so many amazing memories.
