Entertainment News Weekly Roundup(17/03/2017)


It’s Friday (hoorah), which means we’ve got your news update for the week. So take some time away from the University woes and have a catch up with the latest entertainment news.

Firstly of all… Happy St Patricks Day 🍀

Whether you’re out tonight partying and having a wild weekend or staying in for a quiet one, people all over will be celebrating St Patricks Day. So here are some top tips for survival.

  1. Line your stomach – We’re all capable of making the mistake of not filling up on food before a boozy night out, so make sure you’re eating plenty before you hit the town tonight or this weekend.
  2. Don’t stop – Go on treat yourself, it’s the weekend so enjoy yourself!



Summer is not that far away and many of you might be spending the summer at some of the biggest festivals in the world, such as Glastonbury Festival. Yesterday it
was confirmed that none other than Ed Sheeran will be headlining the Pyramid Stage, Sunday night on the 25th June.

There has been a lot of speculation, but Ed finally took to his Instagram (@teddysphotos) to announce at the start of his tour which started last night, that he would indeed be headlining. With the full line-up yet to be announced, Glastonbury have also confirmed their Friday and Saturday night headliners, Radiohead and Foo Fighters. Keep your eyes posted on Glastonbury’s social media accounts for more updates.

Now, many of our hearts were broken when it was announced that Mary Berry and the classic duo of Sue and Mel were leaving The Great British Bake Off (inserts broken heart) but this week it’s finally been revealed who will be filling their socks. With the much loved show moving to Channel 4, and Paul Hollywood being the only original judge, let’s take a look at the new line up…

Sandy Toksvig and Noel Fielding have been confirmed as the show’s host. Prue Leith will be joining Hollywood as the new judge.

Hmm. We’re not convinced ourselves that this will be a good mix (pardon the pun), but do you think it’s a winning recipe? (ok, last one)

And finally, a follow up from last week’s story with the man who’s kids disrupted his Skype interview with BBC, has finally spoken out.
