Of all the things we’ll be sad to see go when the Obamas leave the White House this week, perhaps the thing we’ll miss most is the Barack and Joe Biden bromance memes. Like this one of Barry O awarding his pal with the Medal of Freedom – or as the internet liked to think of it, the classiest friendship necklace ever.

But don’t cry – we’ve rounded-up a lovefest list of our fave celebrity BFF pairings, to fill the Obiden void.

Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner


While the Stark sisters have an erm… complicated, relationship, Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner’s one is pretty straight forward: they’re straight-up BFFs. The Game of Thrones co-stars have literally grown up together, so they have firm BFF credentials – but in case you were in any doubt, last year they even revealed their matching tattoos at the Emmys.

Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran

They craft for each other, they get ready for awards shows together, they speak in rhyme and they even make each other jam. Hands down the most adorable pals in the world.

Taylor Swift and… pretty much everybody

Happy 4th from us ❤️

What else do we expect from the woman literally responsible for the hashtag #squadgoals? Her vast army of friends ranges from models to actors to sportspeople to her primary school BFF. And one day, maybe, us.

Zendaya and Tom Holland 

Tom Holland and Zendaya met on the set of the film Spider-man: Homecoming, where she plays Mary Jane and Peter Parker in the upcoming movie Spider-Man: Homecoming. But their friendship isn’t just for the screens – after all you know what they say: friends who dance together, stay together.

Salasi and Val

Oh Bake Off, you’ve left such a cake-shaped hole in our lives – but luckily, some of the cast have continued to hang out and warm our hearts like fresh scones. Salasi and Val are easily our fave Bake Off friendship to date. Nothing says adorable like a baking banker from London hopping on his motorbike to hang out with a pensioner in Somerset.

Ashley Benson and Shay Mitchell

To my little sis on her birthday – PLL has given me so many things I'm thankful for but you are easily at the top of that list. Having experienced something so life changing together has bonded us in a way that's impossible to describe, and I am forever grateful you were by my side the entire time (literally 😬). We have spent so many early mornings and late nights together and it's those moments, those exhausted, delirious, and hilarious moments I can't wait to look back on in five years and tell our kids about years after that. I know this next year of your life will be your best yet and I am so lucky to be along for the ride. I love you Benz and I'm so thankful you were born. – Buttah 🙌🏽🎂👭 #buttahbenzo

A post shared by Shay Mitchell (@shaymitchell) on

The five Pretty Little Liars stars are all real life BFFs (so much so that they got matching tattoos to remember each other by when they finished filming – seriously, matching tattoos are everything) but Ashley Benson and Shay Mitchell are more than just besties. They’re ‘sisters’.

Dan and Phil

YouTube stars Dan (@danisnotonfire) and Phil (AmazingPhil) met through the internet in 2009 – and they’ve been pretty much inseparable ever since. They’ve made hundreds of YouTube videos together, they’ve done a radio show together and they’ve even lived together. How could you not be Phans of these two?

Mindy Kaling and BJ Novak 


The Ross and Rachel of Twitter, Mindy Kaling and BJ Novak were colleagues, then bf and gf, then platonic BFFs. Supposedly. It’s been a very confusing ride for their fans who just want these two soup snakes to be together.

Suki Waterhouse and Cara Delevingne

Suki and Cara have been best friends since their school days. In 2016, they somehow made a high-vis jacket the ‘must have’ of the season when they wore their matching ones to Glastonbury. They topped off the look with blue hair extensions and matching braids from Braid Bar, because everyone knows that while friends worry about wearing the exact same outfit, best friends dream of it.

Benedict Cumberbatch and Judge Rinder

The Sherlock actor and daytime TV star Robert (aka Judge Rinder) met at Manchester University, where they became student BFFs. Robert was the best man at Benefit Combersnog’s wedding – and even more adorably, when the Judge got hitched a couple of years earlier, Benny C got ordained online so he could officiate the ceremony. Or ‘Tribbiani it’, as we like to say.

Grace Helbig, Hannah Hart, and Mamrie Hart.

These three lovely ladies are have been dubbed ‘YouTube’s Holy Trinity’ by their fans. Between the three of them they have 2.3 MILLION FOLLOWERS, and rumour has it that if they ever had a fight, the internet might actually implode.

Amy Poehler and Tina Fey

The joint queens of comedy, Amy Poehler and Tina Fey are one of our fave celeb double acts. They spent years on Saturday Night Live together, and were the first female duo to host Weekend Update. Oh, and they’ve hosted the Golden Globes – three freakin’ times. Obviously, they missed working together so much that they starred in a sibling comedy film together, proving once and for all that they really are each others’ sister from another mister.

From the best and worst places to be a girl in the country, to social media lies and the real life Gilmore Girls, here’s what we’ve been doing, loving and obsessing over this week…

Hillary Clinton has pneumonia

In case you missed it, the US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton collapsed on Tuesday after attending a 9/11 memorial event. The Democrat candidate later revealed she was suffering from pneumonia which isn’t ideal timing considering, you know, she’s running for President and all. Obviously, Trumpy fans took the opportunity to suggest she isn’t up to the job – but Hillz’ doctor later pronounced her totally fit to be Prez.

In other news, Donald Trump remains fully Donald Trump. Sigh.

We may have found the real-life Gilmore Girls

If you’ve worked your way through all seven seasons of the Gilmore Girls and are anxiously awaiting their return triumphant return to Netflix, we’ve found something that might cure some of your cravings.

A 13 year old girl was sent on a mission to find sanitary products by her mum. The ensuing text exchange, which her mum screen-shotted and uploaded to Facebook, makes Lorelai and Rory’s quick-fire banter look practically boring by comparison. Our favourite quote: “VAGINAS ARE MYTHS WHISPERED QUIETLY IN SECRET AMONG ONLY THE BRAVEST OF MEN, COURAGEOUS ENOUGH TO EVEN MENTION THE NAME”.

Mothers really do know best.

The results are in – and it’s not looking good for girls in Middlesbrough

A report published by Plan International UK and the University of Hull earlier this week outlined the quality of life for girls all over the country. They compared five factors – childhood poverty levels, life expectancy, teenage conception rates, GCSE results and percentage of girls under 18 not in employment – to conclude that life is worst for girls growing up in Middlesbrough.

Turns out the best place to be a girl in the country is Waverley. So guess we’re all moving to… (ok, we had to look it up) Surrey.

Community announcement: don’t believe everything you hear 

In her latest video, YouTuber Nikisha Brunson made the bizarre claim that bras give you breast cancer. To anyone who saw this and wondering if there’s any truth to her video, we can confirm that this could not be less true. Even actual Breast Cancer charities are trying to bust this myth.

Also, while we’re at it, there is zero evidence that spray on deodorant gives you breast cancer, either. So bra up and spray away – or don’t, it’s up to you.

Ready, steady, break off: Mel and Sue are dessert-ing Channel 4’s Bake Off

In the news that shocked the nation, GBBO has broken up with the BBC and immediately confirmed that they’re going to start dating Channel 4 instead. What does this mean for all us baking enthusiasts? It means we have to say goodbye to Mel and Sue, and hello to ad breaks. NOT COOL.

I-I-I-do! Anna Camp and Skylar Astin got hitched!

Last Saturday, Pitch Perfect’s Anna Camp (AKA Aubrey) and Skylar Astin (Jesse) tied the knot for realsies, and loads of their note-perfect co-stars were in the audience. It was aca-amazing wedding and the photos are so dreamy they might just make you tear up.

Talk about a harmonious couple.
