Freya Ridings made a huge breakthrough when her Platinum-selling hit ‘Lost Without You’ became a regular fixture in the Top 10 towards the end of 2018, as it hit a total of 200 million streams. And Freya’s career has remained stratospheric throughout 2019. She scored a second sizeable hit with the Silver-certified ‘Castles’ ahead of her self-titled debut album which shot into the charts at #3.

‘Sgt Stubby: An Unlikely Hero’ is more than just a feel good film, it also provides some insight into a little known fact of the history of World War 1, the important role animals played on the battlefields in France. I took my two youngest sons, aged 12 and 15 to see the film, and it was a revelation to them to discover at the end, when we were shown photos of the real Robert Conroy and Stubby, that the film was based on factual events.
‘The Happytime Murders’, starring Melissa McCarthy, Maya Rudolph, Joel McHale and Elizabeth Banks is definitely not for the kids. Director, Brian Henson, son of Jim Henson, and the director of ‘The Muppet Christmas Carol’, has created a movie that will leave you wondering if Jim Henson would have allowed this if he were still alive.
