When was dirty dancing released
Most women of a certain age will tell you that Dirty Dancing is one of their favourite films. Released in 1987 and starring the late Patrick Swayze in his prime, it became an international hit and was still essential viewing by the time I was a teenager in the mid-1990s. I'm not ashamed to admit (well, maybe slightly) that I have watched it countless times since then, and have always wanted to watch the stage version. So I jumped at the chance to see it at the start of its week-long run at The Regent Theatre. For anyone who doesn't know the story, it follows naive daddy's girl Frances 'Baby' Houseman, who spends the summer of 1963 with her family at upstate New York holiday resort Kellerman's. There she encounters brooding dance instructor Johnny Castle and - after she agrees to fill in for his usual partner for a show - he teaches her to dance and, of course, they fall in love. The theatre production tells the same story, set against the same wonderful soundtrack as the film. Kira … [Read more...] about Theatre review: Dirty Dancing at The Regent Theatre, Hanley

HARRY Styles will want to look away now. Just a week after I told how his Victoria’s Secret model ex Camille Rowe had moved on with Tarzan hunk Alexander Skarsgard, the first Instagram photos of the hot new couple have emerged – and it looks like they’re having the time of their lives. The pair are seen pulling off Dirty Dancing-style moves as she sings on a mic, then straddles her new fella. They started seeing each other shortly after her split with the ex-One Direction singer this year. And that was awkward for Alexa Chung, who introduced Harry and Camille, because she dated Alex herself for two years until last summer. Camille has also been out with the MGMT frontman Andrew Vanwyngarden and Twilight heart-throb Robert Pattinson, while Alexander has been linked to film actresses Amanda Seyfried and Kate Bosworth. If their relationship lasts, they’ll have no trouble at all nailing the first dance at their wedding.

DUA LIPA’s One Kiss has gained her millions of fans this summer but it could take less than a cheeky smooch for her to ditch her biggest admirer. The chart-topping singer’s boyfriend Isaac Carew has been caught grinding with another woman behind her back — while Dua’s No1 hit played in the background. Exclusive footage of model and chef Isaac, which you can watch on The Sun’s website, shows him dirty-dancing with the mystery girl at G-A-Y Late nightclub in London. It comes just a fortnight after he and Dua were photographed together on several dates in London, confirming they had rekindled their romance. The couple have been dating since January, following the break-down of her six-month relationship with Paul Klein, frontman of US band Lany. But she has history with Isaac, as they were together for more than two years before splitting in February last year as her career soared. New Rules singer Dua is currently touring the US. But while Isaac’s mind … [Read more...] about Dua Lipa’s boyfriend Isaac Carew caught dirty dancing with mystery brunette in nightclub as Dua’s One Kiss hit plays
