The 12 Best Moments Of 2017

Right, so 2017 may have had some pretty dark moments. Anna and Chris split, London announced the death of UBER, and let’s not even mention the word Trump. But, it’s not all doom and gloom. Some pretty funny, dramatic and downright bizarre stuff has happened in the last 12 months too.

1. Gemma Collins Falling Down A Hole

There is no way we could do a round up of 2017 and not mention the GC. Her ‘memays’ have dominated social media for pretty much the entire year. And if Gem keeps bringing us incredible material like this, it shows no sign of easing up in 2018 either.

2. Stranger Things 2

The hair is bigger, the curses are stronger and Steve is fitter than ever. The long awaited ST2 did not disappoint, plus it introduced Dacre Montgomery (fit bad boy Billy) into our lives, and for that we are truly grateful.

3. Scott Disick Getting Called Out On Badoo By Tyga

Obvs, we love any Kardashian related dramz, so Tyga finding, and then snapchatting to millions of followers, Scott Disick’s dating profile was music to our ears (...although if you wanna message him here's the link lol)

4. Salt Bae

As the viral vid of the year, Salt Bae became a legend with his keen knife skills and salt spreading sass, with his moves replicated across the country.

5. Courageous Women

The strength and solidarity of women speaking up against harassment and assault through the #metoo hashtag was an incredible thing to witness this year.


6. A Dating App That Will Find You Tom Hardy*

Dating app Badoo launched a lookalikes feature this year, meaning we can find the Toms, Leos and Davids we have always wanted.

*Kind of.

7. Stormzy On Love Island

Love Island itself was a huge highlight of 2017, with the wise words of Dr Marcel, muggy Mike dramz and the Ken and Chris romance. But the ultimate moment was seeing Stormzy appear to give the boys rap advice 😍

8. Nicole Kidman’s Weird Clapping

The Oscars didn’t fail to bring us all sorts of dramatics, with a particularly disastrous best film announcement. But nothing will beat Nicole Kidman’s weird clapping.


9. Barack And Joe

The Obama/Biden bromance continues outside the White House with a hilarious birthday tweet. Miss those guys.

10. Chrissy Teigen Pissing Off Donald Trump

Queen of sass Chrissy Teigen has been entertaining us on twitter for several years now. But the highlight of her sass-reign has got to be when Trump blocked her on Twitter earlier this year. And the reason for it is hilarious.

11. Prue’s Bakeoff Disaster

Crowned as a success (albeit reluctantly), new Bakeoff had the public gripped. But it’s Prue’ Leith’s twitter blunder, prematurely announcing the winner from her hols that wills stick in our minds this year- and this hilarious spoof from Greg James.

I celebrated Prue’s #GBBO shocker through song. A #halloween treat for you...

12. Royal Engagement

Even if you don’t like the royal family, the possibility of bank holiday is always a reason to be celebrated.

Gosh, this all makes me feel proud to be alive in such a glorious salt-bae filled age. Cheers 2017 and here's hoping 2018 will be full of more weird features on Badoo and strange celebrity clapping. Tbh if there's a Stranger Things 3 it's gonna be banging.
