Aldi are at it again with their “inspired” products
Aldi are well-known for taking, ahem, inspiration from popular products and selling them for much cheaper. Remember Colin the Caterpillar-gate? This time they’ve started selling McDonalds inspired products, including chicken nuggets, hash browns and a Big Stack burger (note the rhyme?) which all have very similar packaging as the fast food chain. These new products work out to be almost half the price of the originals – and even come with Sweet Chilli and BBQ dips!
Love Island 2021 will be returning very soon
We’re hoping that it’s a sign of even more normality returning after months of Lockdown with Love Island making a comeback this summer. The show will be aired on ITV in early June – but there are rumours it could be taking place in the UK because of travel restrictions. Will you be watching?
Holly Willoughby makes a hilarious gardening mistake
Plenty of laughter ensued on This Morning last week as Holly Willoughby revealed that every time she pulled up her sweetcorn in her vegetable patch, there was nothing on the end of the stalks. It was only as Phillip Schofield reminded her that sweetcorn grows on the top of trees and not underground that she realised she’d been pulling the stalks from the ground… No wonder they weren’t growing! Have you had any similar gardening blunders?
Jesy Nelson signs solo record deal after leaving Little Mix
It has only been five months since Jesy Nelson left girl band Little Mix due to mental health reasons, but the popstar has just signed a solo record deal, with new music planned for the summer. Exciting!
