A person who attended Fyre Festival, the event which descended into chaos amid reports that guests were stranded at an unfinished site, has provided a first-person account of their experience while also clearing up what appears to be some inaccuracies surrounding the saga. The luxury event, organised by hip-hop star Ja Rule and Billy McFarland, was due to feature performances from acts including Blink-182, Disclosure and Skepta before they all pulled out forcing the whole thing to be postponed.

It’s been billed as one of the greatest comebacks of the year, but Steps have JUST narrowly missed out on the number one spot on the top of the album charts.

Monday saw the band in the lead with a 4,000 unit advantage over Ed, though come yesterday, Ed’s ‘Divide’ was 16,000 units ahead of the band – knocking their album ‘Tears On The Dancefloor’ down to number two.

It’s been a rough old week for X Factor and E4 Stage School alumnus Casey Johnson, who’s not only quit Union J in the past seven days but has also broken up with his long-term girlfriend, Betsy-Blue English. Casey’s axing from the band came as a shock to fans – but Union J’s new management felt that Casey, who only joined the group a year ago to replace George Shelley, didn’t fully fit into the ‘image’ that they were trying to create. ‘We are sad to announce that Casey is leaving Union J, in order to pursue other opportunities.
Pillar of the community and Queen Vic barmaid for what seems like an eternity. Much like the ravens in the Tower of London, there’s a theory in the East End that if Tracey actually ever leaves The Queen Vic, the Borough of Walford will fall to rack and ruin.
