Love Island 2018: Dani Dyer sparks meltdown as fans notice something VERY odd

star Danny Dyer’s daughter Dani left viewers baffled tonight after blowdrying her eyelashes.

She could be seen styling them with a small pink brush as hot air blew over them.

Fans of the show instantly took to social media in confusion.

One viewer tweeted: “What the f**k is Dani doing? Blow drying her eyelashes???? #loveisland.”

“Why is Dani blow drying her eyelashes? #loveisland,” posted another.

A third added: “What the hell was Dani doing…. #LoveIsland.”

“Anyway can someone explain blow drying your eyelashes #LoveIsland,” wrote another.

A fifth laughed: “Dani Dyer drying her eyelashes is literally me every time I get them wet #LoveIsland.”

It comes after Dani announced she only wants to be friends with Jack.

She told Jack that after their conversation during Tuesday night’s episode, her “nut just spun”.

Dani admitted the revelations had not sat well with her, saying: “I like you as a person, we’ve been getting on and stuff. It’s not a problem. I don’t think I have a problem with you about it because nothing’s going on yet.

“It just threw me off a little bit. Obviously it’s just a little bit… It makes me think I’ve gone for the same geezer that all my mates say ‘Dan don’t!’ You’ve got to understand that.”

Jack accepted Dani’s decision and agreed: “It wasn’t meant to be.”

He later said in the Beach Hut: “I need to lick my wounds now.”

Towards the end of the episode, new girls Rosie Williams and Georgia Steel arrived.

Dani questioned if the other girls realised that “two people are actually two whole people” who could steal potential partners.

Watching Rosie and Georgia party with the boys, including Jack, Dani couldn’t keep quiet.

She said: “I can’t watch. I feel like I’m watching my boyfriend cheat on me!”

Hearing that Georgia was a trainee actress, Dani gasped: “I feel like Georgia’s like me, but much prettier!”

ITV Loose Women: Viewers slam ‘awkward’ interview with Lily Allen

Branching from the subject of mothers’ guilt which was spoken about earlier on in the show, the Loose Women brought Lily Allen to the panel.

The Smile singer set about discussing her new album, which will be the first album she has released since 2014.

The album includes songs that talk about mum guilt, and how her life has inspired her newest music.

However the interview wasn’t as smooth as it could have been.

While Ruth Langsford and Stacey Soloman worked hard to give Lily a chance to answer their questions, she didn’t react to the interview much.

Loose Women viewers flocked to Twitter to comment on the interview’s “awkwardness”.

One wrote: “#loosewomen How awkward is this interview?”

Another said: “This is a horrendous interview #LooseWomen.”

And the tweets continued throughout the entirety of the interview.

They went on: “That was awkward viewing #loosewomen”.

“For someone who is used to be interviewed, she’s really not very good at it,” one added.

Another asked: “It’s like she’s stunned that she has to answer questions? #LooseWomen”

Despite viewer backlash, the star was frank and open about her new music, which has received a lot of praise from critics.

Speaking about her upcoming album, Lily revealed: “It’s open to however the listener wants to interpret it really.

“It’s quite harrowing, and very honest a lot of the subjects matter on the record.”

She continued: “I think some people would shy away from talking about those subject matters.

“So I think it’s me saying, here I am addressing it, I’m not particularly proud of the away that I’ve behaved.

“But I think the way we work through these things is talking about them and hopefully I can absolve myself of some guilt and shame as a result.”

Love Island 2018: Viewers in uproar as ITV Hub CRASHES amid Dani Dyer break-up

Thousands of Love Island viewers were beside themselves when ITV Hub crashed during last night’s episode.

The online streaming service was forced to apologise for the inconvenience and tweeted: “Hey #LoveIsland fans – you’ll see we’re experiencing a few issues with being able to login and watch.

“We’re working away as fast as we can to sort it! Thanks for you patience.”

However, the technical problem persisted and ITV Hub had to issue another statement, which read: “Thanks for your patience #LoveSsland fans – trust us we’re working away to get it sorted now.”

But fans were less than impressed at missing their favourite programme and took to Twitter to complain.

One person said: “I can’t believe how upset I am to be missing tonight. All because ITV Hub isn’t working.”

Another added: “No. not coping! Actually RAGING!! @ITV HAVE RUINED my night by having a problem with their HUB! Sort it out man! I have to now disassociate with ALL social media channels until it appears on ITV Player!”

A third commented: “OMG I am having a panic attack here not being able to watch Love Island.”(sic)

The technical issues meant fans missed the moment Dani Dyer, 21, dumped 26-year-old stationary manager Jack Fincham.

Dani, who is the daughter of EastEnders actor Danny, called quits on their romance after finding out Jack had cheated on all his previous girlfriends.

The barmaid admitted she does not get “butterflies” around him and decided she wanted to meet someone new.

In the Beech Hut, she explained: “I just don’t get butterflies around him. He’s a lovely looking lad and he’s very funny, and any other girl would be lucky to have that.

“But not me because I’ve had that. I do feel ready to find something new and that’s what it is. New and fresh, not used.”

Dani later pulled Jack to one side to have a conversation and he questioned whether his rocky past had put her off.

Jack asked: “You don’t think any less of me do you? Be honest though because I hated that. It’s not a good look is it?”

Dani replied: “No, obviously. Initially, I just thought ‘have I just gone for the same type that I always go for?’ It just threw me off a little bit.

“It makes me think ‘I’ve gone for the same geezer that all my mates say ‘Dan don’t.’ You’ve got to understand that.”

Also during the episode new girls Georgia Steel, 20, and Rosie Williams, 26, arrived in the villa for the very first time.

Plus Laura Anderson, 29, and Wes Nelson, 20, shared a steamy kiss in bed and later cuddled under the covers.

Love Island continues tonight on ITV2 at 9pm.

Emmerdale spoilers: ITV bosses hire first transgender regular to play Moira’s son Matty

Moira Dingle (played by Natalie J. Robb) will be shocked to her core when she and Cain Dingle (Jeff Hordley) discover someone has broken into Butler’s Farm.

When Cain knocks out Matty Barton (Ash Palmisciano) after mistaking him for an intruder, Moria will instantly recognise him as her daughter Hannah.

Having transitioned during his many years away from Emmerdale, Matty will make an unexpected return at the end of the month.

Will Matty be welcomed with open arms and accepted? And how will Moira and the Barton family cope with his transition?

Teasing the upcoming storyline, ITV producer Kate Brooks said: “The character of Matty certainly knows how to make an impact: cheeky, effervescent, quick-witted and headstrong.

“It’s not long before he’s charmed his way into the affections of all those who meet him.”

She added: “His tale of a man trying to shake off his past and find acceptance in the present is full of emotion, humour and ultimately hope as he settles back into rural village life, turning Moira’s world upside down in the process.”

Welcoming Ash to the team, she continued: “We are absolutely thrilled to have Ash on board to play this role.

“A skillful actor of great talent, he exudes charisma and there’s an unflinching honesty to his performance that adds real depth to this complex character.

“Ash has already proven himself to be a brilliant addition to the cast and we look forward to charting his journey as he reconnects with old friends and forges new relationships along the way.”

Meanwhile, Ash said: “I’m very excited to be joining the very welcoming Emmerdale family. From nervous auditions to now working alongside the team daily has been truly amazing.

“Matty’s a groundbreaking character to play and I can’t wait to see what’s ahead for him.”

Ash is the second new cast member to join the series in recent weeks, as the casting for Charity’s estranged son was previously revealed.

Actor James Moore will take on the role of Ryan Stocks, who suffers from Ataxic Cerebral Palsy, and was abandoned by Charity more than two decades ago.

Kate promised Ryan’s arrival would throw a “spanner in the works” and teased “unexpected twists” to come.

“We are absolutely delighted to welcome James to the show; an actor of real skill, talent and charisma,” she said.

“As to be expected with his Dingle heritage, the character of Ryan is feisty, funny and reckless, and with an unquenchable zest for life.”

Clearly pleased to have landed the role, James exclaimed: “I’m so excited to have joined the Emmerdale cast. Everyone is so welcoming and friendly and I’m having a great time playing Ryan.

“I leapt a mile when I got the call and I was over the moon to hear that I had got the part.”

Emmerdale continues tonight on ITV at 7pm.

Our Girl season 4: Captain James drops shock Molly Dawes bombshell – will she return?

Our Girl ordinary followed the professional and personal life of Molly Dawes (played by Lacey Turner), but the most recent series has focused on British Army medic Georgie Lane (Michelle Keegan).

However, fans are hopeful Molly will make a comeback after Captain James (Ben Aldridge) let slip they share a child together.

In the latest series, the handsome army officer spoke about his wife Molly and their young son during a drive across Nigeria with Private Maisie.

“You’re not sprogged up are you, boss?” Maisie asked.

“Do you mean have I got children?” replied James. “Yes, one boy.”

“Is he just like Prince George?” said Maisie. “Does he wear posh shorts and have blonde flicky hair and that?”

“Yes, exactly like that,” the straight-faced commanding officer quipped.

The conversation prompted fans of the show to call for Lacey’s return to the popular BBC One programme.

One viewer tweeted: “Please do a series with @LaceyTurner again! @LaceyTurner played the part of Molly Dawes amazing!”

Another said: “Is it a bit late to say I miss Molly Dawes? She was what Our Girl was always about. Her journey. Much preferred her and Captain James. I still cannot warm to Georgie, as much as I like Michelle Keegan’s acting. Bring back Molly please #OurGirl.”

A third commented: “Hello, please bring back Molly Dawes I miss her #OurGirl.”

Someone else penned: “I’m gonna rewatch #OurGirl from the beginning because I miss my woman Molly Dawes.”(sic)

But the viewers are not the only ones who would like to see Lacy return to the show, as creator Tony Ground is also keen to see her reprise the role of Molly.

“If she [Lacey] ever wanted to do it she’s only got to ring me up,” he told Radio Times.

Lacey is currently working on EastEnders, but did not rule out a potential comeback, despite her hectic schedule.

“It’s so hard, I’m so busy at EastEnders, it’s really hard to get away and to take that up again,” she told the publication at last year’s National Television Awards.

“I loved playing her, I’m a huge, huge fan of Our Girl. I don’t know.”

Lacey quit the show in 2015 to return to her role as Stacey Slater in BBC soap EastEnders.

Former Coronation Street actress Michelle took over as the lead actress shortly after Lacey’s departure.

Our Girl airs on Tuesday at 9pm on BBC One.
