Calling all Mancunian singletons: Love Island is on the hunt for people willing to appear on TV in their swimwear all in the name of love.

The ITV reality show is casting for its upcoming 2022 season and applications are open right now. But don’t think you’ll just sail into the villa, because there are a number of requirements and rules you need to be aware of first.

Firstly, candidates must be at least eighteen years old at the date of their application, and those applying can’t be employed by ITV or another company connected to the programme.

People wishing to sun it up in the villa all summer must also be exclusively available for a minimum of ten consecutive weeks… Obviously.

And if you’re still feeling a bit lost with the application process, fear not! Because former Love Island contestant Liberty Poole has recently given some advice to those thinking of applying for the 2022 series.

After getting messages from her Instagram followers, Liberty decided to answer some questions about applying, with her main bit of advice being for people to ‘be themselves’ and to not take the process ‘too seriously’.

In a video on Instagram, she said: “I think just be yourself. I’m an absolute nutter and they liked it.

“I was like ‘glamour queen by night, marketing student by day’ – and I switched outfits. I was just myself. I think the key thing is to be yourself and just have fun with it.”

ITV

She also gave an insight into the interview process, revealing that in her first fifteen-minute audition she was asked if she had a party trick, to which she responded by enlarging her nostrils – Liberty believes this is what got her a second interview.

She wrote on her video: “The fact that my nostrils are like black holes in space helped my cause.”

So, if you think your nostrils are bigger than Liberty’s, or you just fancy soaking up some sun and finding love this summer, you can apply to appear on the show here.

Ant and Dec have announced that there will be a new version of I’m A Celebrity held in South Africa. 

Sharing the exciting news onto Twitter, the Geordie duo said the new series would feature a selection of ‘favourite celebrities from the last twenty years’ brought together in a brand new setting.

In their announcement video posted onto social media, Dec said: “It’s probably the worst kept secret in television, but we can confirm we’re doing a very special series of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! in South Africa!”

Showing off the South African scenery behind him, Dec added: “We’re here, it’s going to be your favourite celebrities from the last twenty years who are going back in to do it one more time.”

Ant and Dec said in their caption that the series would be ‘coming to your tellies’ at some point in 2023. 

No specific names from the past twenty years of I’m A Celebrity have been confirmed for the special show, though announcements are expected in the coming months.

Their announcement comes after it was confirmed that the show, which sees celebrities camp out and take part in notorious ‘bush tucker trials’, will be returning to the Australian jungle for its 2022 series.

The series has been set in Gwrych Castle in Wales for the last two years as a result of Australia’s strict Covid-19 travel restrictions, but now Australia’s borders are open the show will be heading back down under, ITV announced earlier this year.

ITV’s director of content Rosemary Newell confirmed the news to The Mirror, saying in a statement: “We expect I’m A Celebrity to return in Australia in November, when it will generate audience over 11 million.”

Ant and Dec had previously expressed their own hopes for the series to return to its original Australian location, with Dec telling The One Show: “We love Wales but you know, Australia is its home and we’d like to get back there if we can.”

I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here first aired in 2002, where it was filmed in Tully, Queensland. It then moved to Murwillumbah, New South Wales, where it remained until the Covid pandemic.

Netflix has released the trailer for its brand new horror series courtesy of the creator of Haunting of Hill House.

The Midnight Club is based on the 1994 novel of the same title by Christopher Pike, and will tell the chilling tale of a gang of young adults all living together in a hospice.

The group meet up every night in the library to tell each other sinister stories, as well as look out for signs of life after death.

One night, the friends make a pact to make contact from beyond the grave once they’ve passed away from their terminal illnesses – but when one of the group does die, strange happenings begin to occur within the hospice.

Netflix

Netflix’s official synopsis for the ten-part series reads: “At a hospice for terminally ill young adults, eight patients come together every night at midnight to tell each other stories – and make a pact that the next of them to die will give the group a sign from the beyond.”

The series has been produced, directed and written by The Haunting of Hill House writer Mike Flanagan and The Haunting of Bly Manor writer Leah Fong.

Actors include Adia, Igby Rigney, Ruth Codd, Aya Furukawa, Annarah Shephard, William Chris Sumpter and Sauriyan Sapkota, with Heather Langenkamp as the enigmatic doctor presiding over Rotterdam Home.

Flanagan said at the start of the year that he had ‘been dreaming of this project’ since he was a teenager. 

He tweeted back in February: “I’ve been dreaming of this project since I was a teenager, and I cannot wait to embark on yet another adventure with my @intrepid partner in crime (and television) Trevor Macy, as well as the fantastic crew we’ve been cultivating.”

As well as his work on The Haunting of Hill House and The Haunting of Bly Manor, Flanagan is also celebrated for his adaptations of Stephen King’s Gerald’s Game and Doctor Sleep, the chilling sequel to The Shining.

The Midnight Club will be released on Netflix next month on October 7th.

Stephen Graham to play former Neo Nazi in new ITV true crime drama

The series will tell the true story of the infiltration of a Neo Nazi group

Stephen Graham will star in a new ITV crime drama telling the true story of how a Neo-Nazi group’s plan to kill an MP was foiled by an inside man.

The Walk In will see Graham take on the leading role of Matthew Collins, a reformed Neo Nazi working as a journalist for anti-racist organisation Hope not Hate.

In the five-part series, set to air next month, Collins will attempt to stop the radicalisation of young white men before it begins.

In order to do this, he identifies a Far Right Neo Nazi group marking itself out with a youthful clean-cut image, but hell bent on creating a race war.

ITV

His aim is to infiltrate such organisations by running moles, or walk-ins, with the goal of publishing information online about their activities to expose and fracture them.  

Despite repeated attempts, however, Collins wasn’t able to break into this particular group. Consequently, they continued to grow in strength, which eventually led to the horrific murder of MP Jo Cox. 

Although the marches and the social media posts stopped, Collins knew the group would only have been driven underground and that he had probably lost all chance of getting information from within.

But in March 2017, he received an email from someone claiming to be a member; a mole ready to talk about a horrific plan to murder a second MP. 

The series, written by acclaimed screenwriter Jeff Pope and directed by BAFTA award winning Paul Andrew Williams, has been billed as an explosive state-of-the-world series that ‘explores some of the most critical and relevant issues of modern times including racism, freedom of speech and terrorism’. 

This isn’t the first time Graham has worked with Pope, with the actor appearing in Little Boy Blue, an ITV drama about the murder of Rhys Jones in Croxteth and subsequent police investigation.

The Walk In will air from Monday October 3rd, with the remaining four episodes then being shown weekly.

All episodes will be available as a boxset drop on the ITV Hub following the first episode.
