The weekend is finally here, and with it your weekly roundup of entertainment news! Whether you’re heading home for Easter, or staying in Bournemouth, sit back and check out this week’s news.

Winter is Coming…This week saw the release of the official Game of Thrones season 7 teaser trailer. With winter set to be coming in July of all months, it looks like fans are in for a gripping season with the trailer dropping hints throughout. In the trailer we see Daenerys Targaryen, Cersei Lannister and Jon Snow walking towards their thrones, but to find out more about what we learn from the trailer, see Danielle Scattergood’s article for an in-depth analysis.

The Walking Dead season 7 finale receives strong ratings

Winter may be around the corner on HBO, but on FOX situations were near boiling point for the season 7 finale of The Walking Dead. The episode titled “The First Day of the Rest of Your Life” was watched by over 11 million viewers, and saw allegiances make and break in this season’s epic climax.

Kendall Jenner sparked some backlash with her ‘Pepsi’ advert which was taken down just a day after its release. Pepsi attempted to “project a global message of peace, unity and understanding” but unfortunately have failed with the campaign quite frankly deflating like a balloon. Advertising such a powerful message whilst contradictory selling a very ‘unhealthy’ product, has left people feeling angry and led to Pepsi removing the advert. What a shocker.

Harry Styles has released his first solo track with the debut ‘Sign of the Times’. The former boy band member had the first play of his new track on Nick Grimshaw’s radio 1 breakfast show this morning (Friday 7th). Styles describes his new track as ‘bombastic’ and has moved away from the style of music that he performed with One Direction.

New baby daddy Liam Payne is also reportedly releasing his solo music in a few weeks. After recently becoming a parent with his partner Cheryl, Liam is set to embark on his new solo career and will be the last member of One Direction to-do so.

Now, Kim Kardashian is not one to shy away from the spotlight. So, what do we all think of the new summer float which is a pool type lilo in the shape of Kim K’s butt. The float which is apparently selling at a whopping £78 was discussed on Thurday’s This Morning and left Philip and Holly in fits of laughter.
