K-Pop fans in Korea have awoken to the tragic news that Kim Jong-hyun, star of boy band SHINee and solo artist, has died aged 27.

Local news outlets reported his death as an apparent suicide, and it was claimed that the singer, known better as Jonghyun, told his sister that it was ‘too hard’ in a text message sent before he was found by police.

He was taken to hospital after being found at 6.10pm Korea time on 18 December, but was pronounced dead later that evening.

For many fans, they have now awoken on 19 December to hear that their idol has passed away.

‘This is the worst day ever in my kpop life. I will let myself cry and mourn for this precious and beautiful person. We will feel better eventually,but today..knowing he suffered so much…it breaks my heart (sic),’ wrote one devastated fan.

Others took to social media to share their memories of the 27-year-old and thank him for putting ‘a smile on my face’.

I am truly crushed. I, and I’m sure many of you, grew up with SHINee, with Jonghyun. Rest easy. We will always love you in the present and all throughout the future.

As soon as I woke up, my tears started streaming again. My chest aches as I picture Jonghyun's face in my mind and ponder about what has happened. How I wish it was only a nightmare.

Kim Jonghyun, an amazing man, passed away hours ago. As someone who has been with SHINee since 2009 and has listening to Jonghyun's solos since they came out, I can't help but feel emotional. May this angel rest in peace. #jonghyun

Jonghyun, my lord and savior. Thank you for being such an important person to me, and for letting me keep a smile on my face.

You’re such an amazing person, and it’s hard to let go of someone you love dearly. RIP Jonghyun, as this is my last goodbye. ❤??

I feel so unmotivated to do anything. As soon as I woke up, I cried and I haven't stopped since then. This is such a sad day for every kpop fan and mostly for shawols.

Many fans also called on Shawols – fans of the band SHINee – to ‘stay strong’ and to talk to friends and family members if they needed to.

Shawols, please stay strong, please don’t hurt yourself, please talk to your friends/family, talk to us, we’re all here for you loves ❤

Earlier this year, SHINee released their fifth Japanese album Five, and toured across Japan until April.

The group were formed in 2008 and debuted months later, with Jonghyn beginning to write songs for the idols the following year.

SHINee have been called the Princes of K-Pop due to their complex dance routines and incredible live vocals, earning huge hits with songs including Sherlock, Replay, Ring Ding Dong and Dream Girl.

Jonghyun’s death came just one week after he wrapped up a series of solo concerts, and fans began sharing videos of his 10 December show, where he could be seen dancing and singing on stage while his SHINee bandmates Taemin and Minho cheer him on in the crowds.

Big Brother will return next year on ITV2 and online

Big Brother, one of the original UK reality TV shows, will return to screens in 2023, years after being axed by both Channel 4 and later Channel 5.

The show, which launched careers of ITV presenter Alison Hammond and Radio 1 DJ Adele Roberts, will be revived by ITV2 and new streaming platform ITVX.

A promotional video aired during the Love Island series finale on Monday evening.

Officials said the famous house will return with a “contemporary new look”.

The returning programme – which was originally on for 18 years – will see a cast of “carefully selected housemates from all walks of life” live together under strict surveillance for up to six weeks.

Similar to previous editions, the public will regularly vote contestants off in live evictions, as well as deciding on an overall cash prize winner.

“This refreshed, contemporary new series of Big Brother will contain all the familiar format points that kept viewers engaged and entertained the first time round, but with a brand new look and some additional twists that speak to today’s audience,” said Paul Mortimer, ITV2’s reality TV chief.

“We’re beyond excited to bring this iconic series to ITV2 and ITVX where it should especially engage with our younger viewers.”

The series, which takes its name from the all-seeing ruler in George Orwell’s novel, Nineteen Eighty-Four, first appeared on Channel 4 in 2000, and was won by Liverpudlian builder Craig Phillips.

It was influential, both as a public social experiment and also in creating a new form of celebrity, with normal people prepared to have their every waking (and sleeping) moment caught on camera and broadcast to the world.

Celebrity editions aired, featuring the likes of Katie Price, Gemma Collins and Mark Owen.

Despite its early success and influence, the National TV Award-winning programme soon found itself embroiled in controversy over reports of bullying, racism, fixing, and general toxic behaviour in the house, with complaints being made to both the police and Ofcom.

The show moved to Channel 5 in 2011 but was axed in 2018 amid a ratings slump. Channel 5 controller Ben Frow later said he had no regrets over the decision and that the media landscape had become “very crowded with reality shows”.

‘Jumping the shark’

Speaking on the BBC Sounds Podcast, Unreal: A Critical History of Reality TV, this summer, Big Brother’s creative director Philip Edgar-Jones said audiences “very clearly hated it” when producers intervened in the programme too much.

“We call it ‘jumping the shark’ in television, when you the hand of the producer is too overt and you feel like the show has therefore lost that sense of authenticity – that’s when the audience gets more angry.

“Being authentic to the show, you create this world with its own internal logic, and you can’t break that internal logic, otherwise you break the magic and you lose the trust of the audience.”

At the time, Big Brother producers said they were open to “future possibilities”, apparently leaving the door open for a return one day.

Irish singing duo Jedward, the identical twin brothers who twice appeared on the celebrity version of the show, have made an early bid online to host the returning series.

Kim Kardashian ‘wasn’t planning on’ a relationship with Pete Davidson

Kim Kardashian did not see loe coming with Pete Davidson.

In a conversation for Hoda Kotb’s “Making Space” podcast, Kardashian explained that she’d been single for about 10 months before she was ready to date again.
“I think that, you know, sometimes things happen when you just least expect it. It was the last thing that I was really planning on,” she said, “And so when it did happen, we were kind of, like, ‘Oh, my God, I wasn’t planning on this. And this isn’t even what I was thinking of,’ and it just makes it that much sweeter and so much more fun.”
In February 2021, Kardashian filed for divorce from Kanye West.
Kardashian and Davidson appeared in a “Saturday Night Live” sketch together last fall where they shared a kiss. They became Instagram official in March.
“I definitely took my time,” Kardashian said. “I took, you know, 10 months or something before I dated or talked to anyone. And I just wanted that time to really figure out and go through the motions: ‘Am I making the right decision? How do I feel about this?’ So once I went through all of the motions, I finally was, like, ‘OK, guys, I am so ready to meet someone.’ And I randomly did.”
Despite their very public relationship. Kardashian says she is keeping some aspects of her time with Davidson private.
“I do think that I am holding, you know, a little bit more close to my heart on certain aspects of my relationship with Pete, and it feels good just to know that, like, we have this connection and we have our little bubble of a relationship world that we live in that, like, not a lot of people know about,” she said.
For now, Kardashian said just being with Davidson puts a smile on her face.
“We were driving in the car yesterday and I just, like, looked at him and I was like, ‘Thank you.’ And he was like, ‘What?’ And I was like, ‘For running errands with me, like, this is so much fun just to, like, go to a doctor’s appointment or go to the dentist and just, like, run errands. I’m having so much fun.'”

007 film must treat Bond girls properly, says Waller-Bridge

Fast cars, martinis and Bond girls are core parts of the formula for 007 films, but one of those elements is set for a change in the latest adventure.

Fleabag creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who is working on the script for the 25th Bond film, is on a mission to make sure the movie will "treat women properly" – even if the spy does not.

Ahead of the release of the as-yet-untitled film, Waller-Bridge told Deadline: "There's been a lot of talk about whether or not (the Bond franchise) is relevant now because of who he is and the way he treats women.

"I think that's b*******. I think he's absolutely relevant now. It has just got to grow.

"It has just got to evolve, and the important thing is that the film treats the women properly.


"He doesn't have to. He needs to be true to this character."

Waller-Bridge says she intends to ensure the female characters, including those played by Lashana Lynch, Lea Seydoux and Ana de Armas, feel "like real people ".
