Be Like Bill

This week we have been taking advice from a stick man with a wooly hat called Bill. If you haven’t seen a Bill meme on Facebook this week you are probably in the minority. Since the beginning of January the “Be Like Bill” fan page has gained almost 1.5 million likes. So what kind of advice does Bill give to make him so popular?

Bill has advice on how to react on social media to rain…

More of Bill’s advice can be found on his dedicated Facebook page, but do be warned, these three featured are some of the more tame memes and some get a little bit more risque in their choice of language. 

Celebs Party Hard After NTAs

On Wednesday night the UK’s leading stars were out in force to celebrate the very best in British television as voted for by the public at the National Television Awards. Ant and Dec scooped the Best Entertainment Presenter gong for their 15th consecutive year and treated us to this backstage selfie (you may remember they took one on stage last year).

Despite the fact the awards attracting its lowest audience in eight years (less than 5.5 million viewers), we think that judging by the presenting duo’s faces – they had a pretty good time…! However, perhaps not as much as This Morning favourites Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby who enjoyed the night so much that they didn’t bother to go home before turning up to work in the same clothes to present the daytime magazine show. And, is it just me or are they a little worse for wear? Take a look and decide for yourself… 

Cadbury to Open Pop-Up Creme Egg Cafe

Cadbury has come under fire in recent years due to changing recipes of the much-loved sweet treat, the creme egg. In a bid to drum-up a some more positivity towards the brand, a pop-up creme egg cafe is to be opened on Greek Street in Soho today. The three-storey cafe will have a takeaway on the ground floor which will sell creme egg toasties for £2 each, the first floor will house a more formal restaurant with four core dishes including creme egg and soldiers. The second floor is perhaps the most fun with an “interactive ball pool”, sounds egg-cellent. You can book a reservation here

Brands React to #NationalHugDay

If you didn’t have a hug yesterday, you missed out. 🙁 Not many people may know it but 21st January marks the official #NationalHugDay. And true to form, brands were out in droves on Twitter showing their support for the good old cuddle. Everyone from Jacamo to Virgin Trains added their twist, but personally we liked this clever one from Ubisoft for Assassin’s Creed, which their fans seemed to like too!


And Finally…

As the internet loves a cat, here’s one that has been likened to actor Adam Driver who stars in the latest Star Wars film The Force Awakens as well as US sitcom, Girls. Marci Robin tweeted a picture of a cat she saw at Monmouth County SPCA pointing out the resemblance and apparently the world agreed. A poll on Buzzfeed which has had over 100,000 votes states that 90% can see a clear likeness. What do you think?
