(Staying) At Home With The Williamses
Are you a big Robbie fan? Check in with the Take That heart-throb and his wife Ayda as they tell us everything we need to know about ‘staying at home’ in 90210. Get an insight into their funny updates on family life, wonderfully narrated by North East comedy favourite, Sarah Millican.
The Morning Show
If it isn’t the stellar line-up that draws you in, the oh-so relevant – and fairly hard-hitting – storyline will. Starring Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon and Steve Carell, it reminds us that news is ‘only half the story’, as dark and extremely challenging storylines unravel from episode to episode. It’s as binge-worthy as it gets, and it’s funnier than it should be – with a bit of light-hearted humour thrown in for good measure.
Conversations with Friends, Sally Rooney
Following the Normal People hype after the BBC series hit our home screens, we reached straight out for a book that’s been waiting on our bookshelf for some time now. Also written by Sally Rooney, Conversations with Friends tells the story of Frances, Bobby, Nick and Melissa as their relationships unfold online and in person. An unforgettable novel about the possibility of love. It will make you laugh, cry and think differently – and you won’t be able to put it down.
