Margot Robbie to play Barbie in new live-action movie

Our very own Gold Coast girl Margot Robbie will star as Barbie in a new live-action movie about the iconic doll.

It will be the first time the popular toy has ever been brought to life on the big screen, with the project an exciting partnership between Warner Bros and Mattel.

In a statement, Robbie said she is “honoured” to have been chosen to play the role of Barbie, who has been a much-loved doll for generations.

“Over the brand’s almost 60 years, Barbie has empowered kids to imagine themselves in aspirational roles from a princess to president,” she said.

In more exciting news, it’s also been revealed that Robbie will co-host the film alongside her husband Tom Ackerley and Josey McNamara from LuckyChap Entertainment.

“I’m so honoured to take on this role and produce a film that I believe will have a tremendously positive impact on children and audiences worldwide,” Robbie said.

A storyline or release date for the film has not yet been revealed but we are already SO excited!

The first two celebs heading into the South African Jungle have been revealed!

The first two people heading into the South African jungle for the latest season of I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here! have been revealed.

The reality show confirmed on social media on Monday that Gogglebox stars Angie Kent and Yvie Jones will venture into the camp.

The best friends said they were looking forward to the adventure, but admitted it was a little strange to have the roles reversed.

“I cannot believe we have spent four seasons watching, laughing and commentating on this show from inside our living room and now we will be the ones being laughed at!” Yvie said.

“I am a massive fan of watching celebrities do absurd things in the jungle but I never thought I would be one of those people doing it. I cannot wait to get up close and personal with Lady JMO and Dr Chris!” Angie commented.

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! premieres Sunday 13 January on 10 and 10 play.

Tidying Up With Marie Kondo only premiered on the popular streaming service less than a week ago and its already sparked a frenzy, with viewers taking to social media to share stories and photos of their massive spring cleans.

The eight episode binge-worthy series centres around Japanese tidying expert Marie Kondo, who helps clients clear out the clutter by using her simple tidying technique known as the KonMari method.

This method encourages people to tidy their spaces by throwing out anything that no longer “sparks joy”.

“Thank them for their service – then let them go,” Marie Kondo says.

KonMari is also known for its unique folding strategy and use of boxes.
