1. Their songs are stupidly catchy. Not one of their singles has been rubbish, and that’s five years worth of singles. Their new song ‘promises’ is another example of the unashamedly pop kitsch that they do best. Whoever is writing their songs should be getting paid, a lot.
2. They are insanely hot. Each time I see Cheryl Cole on X-Factor, my girl-crush on her grows.
3. They wear sparkly dresses and sometimes sing live, like this:
4. I want to be in Girls Aloud.

I have a new obsession. I’ve always been a huge milk chocolate fan (namely Cadbury’s), but recently my allegiance has shifted to that ebony temptress, dark chocolate. Kit Kats are the best; the mix of slightly bitter chocolate with wafer is too much. I look to be putting on at least half a stone in the next few weeks due solely to Kit Kat consumption. And the best part? Dark chocolate is actually good for you! It contains anti-oxidents and can help to lower blood pressure. Crazy!

or Chuck Bass?
I've spent the last two days watching the first season of Gossip Girl. Even though Chace Crawford is gorgeous, and Penn Badgely is a dead ringer for JM, I think it's Chuck that does it for me. But, when I watch youtube videos of Ed Westwick, and I feel nothing. BUT! There was an interview yesterday with Ed, and they asked him to say something Chuck would say, and he did, and I liked it.

What a cutie Zach Gilford is. He stole my heart playing reluctant quarterback Matt Saracen on the TV adaptation of the movie Friday Night Lights, shown on ITV4 for about three episodes in the UK before it was taken off the air (buy the boxset!).
Wikipedia tells me that Zach spends his summer hiatus from the show leading youth expeditions to places like Alaska and Hawaii. Not only does that show that he has no ego, but it makes me want to be an American youth so I can follow him up a volcano or something.
Friday Night Lights is finally back for a third season showing exclusively on Direct TV. I for one cannot wait to see more hot, sweaty boys playing American Football.

Lost and X-Files got drunk, one thing led to another and this little bundle of joy appeared. It borrows heavily from the X-Files case load of paranormal happenings and unresolved sexual tension, along with the production scale of Lost, and it’s habit of providing more questions than answers.
The brain-child of JJ Abrams (creator of the aforementioned Lost), this show is part of Fox’s fall schedule and just got a full season order. The first episode is a feature length 90 minutes and sets us up with a plane landing itself at Boston's Logan Airport with everyone on board reduced to a pile of rotting flesh hanging off bones. Awesome! The rest of the episodes so far are an entertaining mix of spooky, crazy, witty and quite frankly idiotic writing. I love it. None of the science stuff really makes an ounce of sense, but it doesn’t matter, because you’re already hooked.
The cast includes the ever wonderful and cute Joshua Jackson who is basically Pacey Witter all grown up (with a few extra IQ points and having cut annoying Joey Potter free). His crazy daddy is a mad scientist who messed around with too much in the eighties and subsequently ended up in a mental hospital. Add in the flawless Olivia, FBI super agent and a few scary bald guys and you have yourself a hit!
