#ICYMI: It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas (Again) And 5 Other Friday Facts

The gossip roundup you need to end your week.

Friday, January 22: Your list of bitz to discuss while chatting with the girls at the weekend.

The ‘Beast From The East’ is set to make a comeback

If you’ve been dreaming of a white spring, well, it looks like you could be getting it this weekend.

Being dubbed “The Beast From The East 2.0”, according to Met Eireann there is a potential for a significant snow event next week. A cold front from Siberia is set to result in snow next week with us seeing the most severe conditions on Wednesday and Friday.

According to weather forecasters, if what they’re picking up looks set to happen, there’s potential for a snow event “similar to 2018” on the horizon.

This weekend, temperatures are also set to plummet. On Sunday night we’re expected to get frost, ice and icy temperatures of around -3C. Certainly a time for the central heating and cracked fires.

Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker are a thing

Well, it looks like the rumours are true and Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker are getting to know each other on a “more than friendship level”.

The two have been seen leaving flirty messages underneath eachother’s Instagram photos, with Travis recently sweatin’ after Kourt’s bikini pic.

It’s also been reported that the pair are currently at Kris Jenner’s residence in Palm Springs, blossoming their romance away from the public eye – interesting!

Valentine’s Day is around the corner

We’ve got just over a week until Valentine’s Day and if you’re still on the hunt for something for that special someone, we’ve got lots of ideas to give you some inspiration when present hunting.

From gifts for the gals to gifts for the guys, gifts for your girlfriend to gifts everyone can enjoy (re: food), there’s plenty to choose from and it’s all highlighted on the words above! Just click them.

Strawberry and white chocolate Coco Pops now exist and drool

Just when you thought you’ve seen it all, Kellogg’s come along with a strawberry and white chocolate edition of their iconic Coco Pops.

If that flavour combination sounds right up your street, you might want to act fast, as they’re limited edition, here for a good time not a long time. The Sun has reported that they will be on sale for roughly 12 months, but it’s unclear whether or not they will become a permanent product should sales soar.

Pass the milk and a spoon.

Fair play, Dr Alex George!

On Wednesday morning, Dr Alex George took to Instagram to announce that he has been appointed as the young mental health ambassador by UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

In this new role, Dr Alex will now work closely with the government advising and contributing on topics related to youth welfare. He is set to help introduce more mental health programmes in schools and universities, making discussions more open, easy and normal. As a doctor, not only has Alex George been using his large platform to promote staying at home, showing the work he’s doing with the NHS and dealing with the tragic loss of his brother, but the former Love Islander has also been spreading positive encouragement, giving advice on how to stay motivated and reminding people that it’s OK to have bad days, but that it’s also important to reach out and speak out if you’re feeling down.
