2 Dir: Chris Foggin. Cast: Daniel Mays, James Purefoy, Tuppence Middleton, David Hayman, Dave Johns, Noel Clarke. 12A cert, 112 mins In 2010, a Cornish all-male folk ensemble released an album of sea shanties that reached number nine on the UK chart. As quirky inspirational stories go, it’s hardly up there with Calendar Girls, but it has nonetheless been puréed into a double helping of feel-good mush for the post-Oscar, pre-summer slump. In real life, the Fisherman’s Friends were discovered by the radio DJ Johnnie Walker during a holiday to the fishing village of Port Isaac: it’s a tale that lends itself more naturally to an item on breakfast TV than an entire feature film.

A WOMAN was left horrified when she bought a pair of Boohoo jeans - only to discover when they arrived that they were 45 inches long. Natalie Norton - who is an average height for a British woman at 5ft. 4 - couldn't believe how long the skinnies, that would have fitted someone with 5ft long legs, were. The 26-year-old, from Warrington in Cheshire, decided to stand on a chair to demonstrate the length of the Tall Vintage Wash Rip Knee Jeans, which are currently in the sale for £18.75 on the fashion retailer's site. However, even then, the hem of the denim almost touched the floor. Taken aback by the bizarre sizing, she posted on Twitter: "Anyone got 5ft long legs and need some jeans? @boohoo” The fashion fan, who would usually wear a 30-inch leg, revealed she ordered from Boohoo all the time but has never had this particular issue. Natalie worked out that there was no way anyone could be tall enough to fit into the jeans - unless they were a similar height to footballer … [Read more...] about Shopper left raging after her Boohoo skinny jeans are a FOOT too long – but her friends think it’s hysterical
Friends finished 15 years ago, but continues to be one of the most watched and loved shows of all time. The sitcom, which first aired in 1994, is currently available to steam on Netflix , which has introduced a whole new audience to Monica, Rachel, Joey, Chandler, Phoebe and Ross. Marta Kauffman, who co-created Friends along with David Crane, says she's "thoroughly enjoying" the current obsession millennials have with her work - even though many don't seem to know it is in fact her work. The 62-year-old revealed in a recent interview with Rolling Stone that her teenage daughter's friends recently asked her if she'd "seen that new show, Friends". But, despite the resurgence of the comedy and the desperation for a reboot, Kauffman is adamant that there won't be any new episodes. Speaking to the magazine, she claimed there were several reasons for this. She said: "One, the show is about a time in your life when your friends are your family. It's not that time anymore. All we'd be … [Read more...] about Friends creator explains why the show will never get an official reboot

Though it might make you feel your years, get ready to pay tribute to the sitcom that we've never taken 'a break' from... What is Friends Fest? It's self-proclaimed to be the "ultimate celebration of the world's favourite TV show" - which pretty much sums it up. Based in four locations across Britain - London, Bristol, Manchester and Milton Keynes - the event gives hardcore Friends fans the opportunity to live as one of the gang for one day only. It allows you to walk around the most iconic sets, like Monica's apartment and the Central Perk coffee shop, and get some great snaps in the process. Whether it be lounging around on the Central Perk couch, or recreating the Thanksgiving floating heads scene by peeping around Monica's apartment door, there's plenty of opportunities for fans to get involved. There's even a chance for you to yell 'PIVOT' in the stairwell with a giant mattress, should you wish … [Read more...] about What is Friends Fest, when is it returning to the UK and how can I get tickets ?
