Dani has always insisted that her feelings for Jack were real but now she’s hinted that Love Island isn’t “real life”.

And the aspiring actress lashed out at those who claimed she had “double standards”.

Slamming her actions, a troll brought up the time Dani burst into tears when Jack’s ex Ellie Jones arrived at Love Island’s Casa Amor villa last summer.

They tweeted: “Double standards. You cried like a baby when Jack’s ex went into the villa.

“Then, as soon as you and Jack break up, you are with your ex!”

Dani said she and ex Jack Fincham were simply in a ‘love bubble’ on the show

According to The Mirror, Dani responded with a now-deleted tweet that blasted the comparison.

She reportedly wrote: “You’re seriously associating a situation in Love Island to real life?

“I was with Jack in the show, we were in a love bubble. We wasn’t together and haven’t been.

“People have not got a clue! Completely different.”

Kylie Jenner Hints A Kendall Jenner Makeup Collaboration Is Coming Soon

Kylie Cosmetics has a new collection in the works, and it is a collaboration fans have been dreaming about for years. The beauty brand founder, Kylie Jenner, hinted that a Kendell Jenner makeup collaboration is coming soon!

It is about time the two youngest of Kardashian/Jenner clan got together for a cosmetics line. Kylie has already done beauty collaborations with Kim, Khloe and even Kourtney but there has never any mention of her teaming up with the family model until now.

During an Instagram live, Stormi’s mother revealed there was an excellent reason the Jenner girls had not yet worked together on a makeup line.

A post shared by Kendall (@kendalljenner) on

“Can we also get a collab with Kendall,” one fan wrote during the live segment.

The beauty mogul played coy as she read the question out loud. Kylie winked at the camera and put her finger to her lips saying “shh.” No, she didn’t just leave fans hanging in the wind with her response.

Kylie went on to explain to her millions of followers the reason why she and Kendall have yet to collaborate on a beauty line. It is good one and fans should understand better now why their dream makeup collection has taken so long.

“You know Kendall was in a contract for a really long time, so I couldn’t do a collab with her. That’s the only reason why I didn’t collab with her,” shared the 21-year-old.

Kendall was a model for the beauty brand Estée Lauder for years. Even though Estée Lauder dropped the brunette beauty from their payroll in 2017, that does not mean her contract ended then. Plus, there could have been a non-compete clause further preventing the 23-year-old from working with another cosmetics line.

The good news is, Kylie Jenner has hinted she and Kendall Jenner are going to do a makeup collaboration. She, of course, didn’t give any details or even necessarily confirm it is happening, but all signs point to a collection in the works.

Kylie likes to keep her beauty business all in the family. She has created a mega empire with her cosmetics line and loves working with her family to on new collections. Fans are going to have to stay tuned for more on her collaboration with Kendall. Will, it be under Kylie Cosmetics or will the sisters come up with another cool, hip name?

How the New Avengers: Endgame Trailer Hints At a Major Time Jump

Warning: This post contains potential spoilers for Avengers: Endgame.

Looks like Marvel fans may be in for a time jump when Avengers: Endgame, the sequel to Avengers: Infinity War and the conclusion of a decade of Marvel Cinematic Universe movies that began with Iron Man in 2008, hits theaters on April 26.

In a new trailer for Avengers: Endgame, the original Avengers — including Iron Man (Tony Stark, played by Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America (Steve Rogers, played by Chris Evans) and Thor (Chris Hemsworth) — mull over their time as superheroes as they plan to make one last-ditch effort to save those who disintegrated when Thanos snapped his fingers to eliminate half of all life in the universe.

But how long after that fatal snap the events of Endgame will take place is still up for debate. In the new trailer, we see Black Widow (Natasha Romanoff, played by Scarlett Johansson) sporting both a longer blonde cut as well as a never-before-seen red ombre ‘do, two styles that differ drastically from the short blonde lob she had in Infinity War. And as Vanity Fair writer Joanna Robinson pointed out on Twitter, that dramatic of a transformation likely indicates a significant time jump.

“They’ve stopped trying to conceal the big time jump (clock Natasha’s hair) which is intriguing,” Robinson wrote, adding a photo of Black Widow’s new style with the caption, “We’re in the endgame now…or…like…eventually…in a few years I guess.”

We also get the added bonus of seeing Thor meet Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers, played by Brie Larson) for the first time.

Frozen 2 trailer reignites fan frenzy with hints of new songs, messages about climate change and maybe Disney’s first gay princess

FANS of the £1billion Disney blockbuster Frozen are ready to Let It Go again.

In case you somehow missed the global frenzy the first time round in 2013, the musical tale of Snow Queen Elsa and her fearless sister Anna became one of the highest grossing animated movies ever.

Fans of Disney's Frozen are excited for the sequel after the release of the new trailer

This week saw the release of the first two-minute trailer for the sequel, which notched up more than 116million views in 24 hours.

Frozen 2 will not be out until November, yet social media is buzzing with speculation.

Kate Jackson takes a look at the frosty phenomenon and what to expect from the sequel . . .

The £1billion phenomenon

NOT since Star Wars has a movie dominated the toy market in the way Frozen has, with Elsa dolls out-selling Barbie.

Disney is estimated to have been shifting a billion dollars-worth of Frozen related products in both 2014 and 2015.

In the US there has been £430million worth of Frozen dolls sold

Elsa doll sales, like the soft toy below, were worth £430million in the US alone.

And the blue evening dress worn by Elsa as she sings power ballad Let It Go is Disney’s all-time best-selling costume — with Anna’s outfit in second place.

Children were named after the tormented ice queen, merchandise spun out of control and Let It Go was belted out in homes and playgrounds across the world.

In Britain, 1.45million DVDs were sold in the first three weeks after the film’s release in 2013 and the Frozen Snow Glow Elsa doll became the most popular Christmas toy.

The original movie cost £117million to make and Disney is estimated to have shifted over a billion dollars worth of merchandise

It didn’t stop there, a year later merchandise continued to increase tenfold, and was still going strong in 2016.

Fans could buy everything from Frozen chairs to ride-on toys cars, board games and backpacks.

And it was Elsa and Olaf, the naive snowman, who were shifting the goods, rather than the film’s heroine Anna.

On top of that, the icy tale proved to be the biggest-selling DVD of this decade, shifting more than three million copies in 2014 alone.

The original Disney movie cost £117million to make and went on to be the highest grossing animated film of all time, taking $ 1.287billion. It won two Oscars — Best Animated film and Best Original Song — plus a Golden Globe and a Bafta.

However, Spencer Lacey Ganus — who played teenage Elsa — earned just £600 for her one-day of work. She ended up with ten times that from royalties.

New viewers (if there are any) start here

INSPIRED by Hans Christian Andersen’s The Snow Queen, Frozen is a fairy tale for the modern era, with fierce princesses Elsa and Anna as the heroines.

In the original movie the kingdom of Arendelle is trapped in an eternal winter after princess Elsa’s incredible powers are unleashed following her coronation as Queen.

Elsa flees, and her sister Anna, her new friend Kristoff and his loyal reindeer Sven and naive snowman Olaf set off to persuade her to end her self-imposed isolation and save her homeland.

Meanwhile, the Duke of Weselton schemes to take control of Arendelle by getting rid of both Elsa and Anna.

Elsa is able to conquer all – but only by letting go of her fear.

Where STAR they now?

KRISTEN Bell: Anna

Before voicing heroic princess Anna, Kristen, 38, had appeared in US comedies Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Couples Retreat.

The mum of two, who is married to actor Dax Shepard, had dreamed of being in a Disney animation since she was four.

She said of the movie’s success: “When we were making it, there was a part of me thinking, ‘This is really, really special’.”

Idina Menzel: Elsa

As Frozen brought global fame, Glee actress Idina was dealing with a divorce.

The New Yorker, 47, was balancing the glamour with going to “mediation with my ex, figuring out which days he was visiting our son and the sadness and regret.”

When asked a couple of years ago if her son, now nine, was excited about Frozen 2, she admitted: “He doesn’t give a s***.”

Jonathan Groff: Kristoff

While voicing Kristoff the Broadway actor was also filming the American TV series Looking, in which he got to have raunchy scenes with History Boys actor Russell Tovey.

On stage in 2015 he played King George III in Hamilton, which earned him a Tony Award nomination.

Jonathan, who stars in Netflix crime drama Mindhunter, describes Frozen as “like crack for children”.

Josh Glad: Olaf

The voice of the world’s most famous snowman grew up in sunny Florida and didn’t see snow until he was 15.

Prior to Frozen, the 37-year-old played tech icon Steve Wozniak in the film Jobs and more recent movies include Murder On The Orient Express and Beauty And The Beast.

The dad of two said: “If I had to be remembered for one character, Olaf would be fine.”

The trailer clues

THE teaser has a dark, fearful tone, starting with Elsa running across a rampaging sea, which many fans have interpreted as her being trapped on a mystical island.

The girls are wearing new combat-style outfits and Anna is wielding a sword, which some have likened to a superhero movie.

Disney

Many fans think that the new film will have underlying messages about climate change after Elsa is seen trying to freeze an ocean[/caption]

And rather than winter, it seems to be autumn — although this may not be in their native Arendelle.

Writer and director Jennifer Lee said it will be “bigger, more epic” than Frozen, adding: “They’re going to go far out of Arendelle.”

While most fans have been poring over the trailer, they should be paying more attention to the poster.

Josh Gad, the voice of snowman Olaf, tweeted: “If you look hard enough, this teaser poster will reveal quite a few surprises (like how pretty a snowflake is up close).”

There is speculation that it is set in a different land as we can see an autumnal forest rather than the snowy scenes of Arendelle

There has also been speculation that Frozen 2 could send a message about climate change.

In the trailer, Elsa is either trying to reduce the temperature of the sea as she crosses it or she may simply be freezing it so she is able to walk across it.

It could, though, simply be that this story takes place during a different season or that the characters are in a different land.

The other problem with the climate change theory is that Frozen is clearly set before the industrial revolution, so any rise in the Earth’s temperature is unlikely to have been made by humans.

The new songs

THERE were two versions of mega-hit song Let It Go in the original movie – the empowering one sung by Elsa as she refuses to hide her secret powers any more, and a pop version by Demi Lovato at the end credits.

The song Let It Go won a Grammy and an Oscar, and sold more than ten million copies in 2014, making it the year’s fifth best-selling song.

AP:Associated Press

Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez have promised at least seven new songs for Frozen 2[/caption]

Husband and wife team Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez have promised at least seven new songs.

Director Jennifer Lee reckons one could rival Let It Go’s success. She said in November: “We have a new song that I think is an evolution. It’s our own song. Bobby and Kristen just delivered it three weeks ago. We’ve been working with them for two years and this song just came and I love it.”

The snowflake

THERE is just one bold image on the new movie’s official poster – this snowflake-like formation with four diamonds.

Each diamond contains a different symbol inside it, and fans have speculated that they might stand for the four elements of earth, water, air and fire. Or perhaps, for the four seasons.

Others suspect the four diamonds might stand for four kingdoms, and that the snowflake’s eight points might hint at more princesses.

The new characters: could we have Disney’s first gay princess?

BLINK and you’ll miss them but two new characters are glimpsed in the Frozen 2 teaser — a redhead female and a blonde figure, who is blown upwards in a pile of leaves.

Some fans reckon they could be Anna and Kristoff’s children, even though the pair haven’t aged.

Some think that the film could break new ground and feature Disney’s first ever gay princess after many fans campaigned for Elsa to have a girlfriend

Could these be voiced by the new cast members, Westworld star Evan Rachel Wood and Black Panther actor Sterling K Brown?

Not even respected movie website IMDB knows what their characters names will be in Frozen 2 — yet.

An alternative theory is the sequel will glow under the LGBT rainbow.

There is a twitter campaign titled #GiveElsaAGirlfriend, where lesbian fans have pleaded with the writer to have the heroine fall in love with a woman.

Idina Menzel, who plays Elsa, gave the idea her support, saying: “It would be a great thing.”

Writer Jennifer Lee was also very aware of the drive and said: “We have tons of conversations about it and we’re really conscientious about these things.”
