Stranger Things season 4: Jim Hopper’s back door escape plan outed in detail you missed

Stranger Things left every viewer emotional in the final episode of season three. After fighting against the Russians and the malevolent forces of the Upside Down for ten episodes, Jim Hopper (played by David Harbour) was killed off by shutting down a generator which opened a portal to the Upside Down.

The generator then exploded, bringing down the facility, and Hopper with it.

Fans were devastated, and instantly began suggesting he had not really been killed off, but transported to the other world.

Then, came the show’s post-credit scene, which featured members of the Russian military talking about a prisoner – The American – who fans soon began suggesting was really Hopper.

However, other fans have begun theorising over how Hopper will return – and it isn’t how one would think.

  • Stranger Things season 4: Hopper’s death ‘confirmed’ by David Harbour?

Viewers think he did survive, but not through jumping through a portal to the Upside Down.

And Reddit user Ritzbitz14 recently voiced this theory, saying: “I think that Hopper was somehow able to get away from the machine and hide from the explosion, before being apprehended by Russians escaping the base.”

The user explained the remaining members of the facility escaped from the base with the help of a back door.

They went on: “The Russians were evacuating the base through some secret exit, a backdoor, if you will, and ran into Hopper on the way.

“This is supported by the fact that when the American Military came storming through the base just minutes after the explosion they were not shown capturing any Russians even though they were running through the heart of the base.

“We also don’t see any captured Russians up in the parking lot where we see lots of military guys and Will and his mother getting reunited.”

This theory does take some suspension of disbelief, but the user added: “It’s obviously possible that the Russians were captured, but why not show that?

“The fact that we don’t see any captured Russians seems like a pretty significant detail.”

This is how the fan believes Hopper went on to get captured by the Russians, and sent to Russia as a prisoner.

They conclude: “After escaping through this backdoor, the Russians and their prisoner managed to get back to Russia and locked Hopper up.”

Could his death have truly been a huge misdirect to see him captured during his escape?

Meanwhile, Hopper star David has recently been speaking out about his character’s death, and has even alluded to him being dead permanently.

Speaking at Comic Con in Dortmund, he explained: “I think Hopper — from the very beginning I’ve said this — he’s very lovable in a certain way, but also, he’s kind of a rough guy.

“Certainly in the beginning of season one he’s kind of dark, and he’s drinking, and he’s trying to kill himself, and he hates himself for what happened to his daughter.”

Dramatically, he added: “I feel like, in a sense, that character needed to die.”

‘What you said doesn’t count’ Piers Morgan tears into Hugh Grant over tactical vote plan

Despite usually taking Friday off from Good Morning Britain, Piers Morgan was back on ITV’s screens to discuss the general election result alongside a panel which included Stanley and Rachel Johnson. The GMB host wasted no time in taking a swipe at Steve Coogan and Hugh Grant following their campaign throughout the election to persuade voters to oust Boris Johnson as Prime Minister.

The night before the election Coogan told viewers his character Alan Partridge would vote Tory because he’s “ill-informed” during an appearance on Channel 4 news.

Meanwhile, Grant had spent the election campaign urging people to vote for the Liberal Democrats.

The actor was pictured checking his phone with an unimpressed expression as the exit poll results were announced. 

Grant then tweeted: “There goes the neighbourhood.”

Discussing the actors, Morgan said: “[Grant’s] reaction was ‘There goes the neighbourhood’. Actually, there goes his credibility.

“What we’ve discovered, as Hillary Clinton, celebrities can have the opposite effect. Entitled millionaires telling us our vote doesn’t count. 

“I watched Steve Coogan on Channel 4 news I think it was on the day before the election and he was so sneering about Brexiteers called them stupid and thick.

“[He] said his character Alan Partridge was basically like them, ignorant blah blah blah off he went on his little rant and I watched and I thought ‘My god’…”

Interrupting, Susanna Reid asked: “Does that resonate in any way?”

“Imagine if you are a working class northern Labour voter who voted Leave,” Morgan continued. 

“Who’s an Alan Partridge fan…,” Reid added.

“You’ve got this multi-millionaire entitled Hollywood brat telling you your vote doesn’t count,” Morgan said.

“Well good morning Mr Coogan it turned out what you said didn’t count good morning Mr Grant it turned out what you said didn’t count.

“In fact if anything you both had the complete opposite effect in getting Boris elected.”

Earlier in the week, Coogan told Channel 4 news: “Well Alan Partridge is ill-informed and ignorant and therefore he’s a Conservative and a Brexiteer.”

He was asked: “So he’d be voting Boris Johnson?”

“Yes,” Coogan answered. “I think the reason Tories don’t invest as much in education is because they depend on a certain level of ignorance for support.”

With just two seats to be declared, the Conservatives had won 363 seats and Labour had won 203.

Labour suffered huge losses in the general election with leader Jeremy Corbyn confirming he will stand down following the crushing results. 

Meanwhile, Lib Deb leader Jo Swinson lost her seat to SNP rival Amy Callaghan.

Stormzy REVIEW: Heavy Is The Head proves rapper deserves bragging rights on powerful album

Stormzy has been crowned indisputable pop culture icon in more ways than one this year. The Grime MC, born Michael Omari, cemented his status on stage after being cherry-picked to assume the heavily scrutinised headline slot at Glastonbury and made history as the first British rapper to take it on.

TIME Magazine then hailed him as one of 10 Next Generation Leaders “who are shaping the world”, to which he responded by insisting he was “deeply flawed” in spite of the accolade.

Stormzy’s battle between his powerful persona and introspective tendencies is demonstrated throughout his latest album, Heavy Is The Head.

In equal parts abrasive and smooth, the 16-track record, which follows his 2017 debut Gang Signs & Prayer, presents a detailed portrait of the South Londoner’s vulnerability amid his inner struggles and meteoric rise to fame.

It opens with the brash Big Michael, which sees the 26-year-old warn his rivals that their “time is up” in a brassy call to action, as he declares bragging rights by branding himself “not top two, top one”.

The star then teams up with Tottenham-born rapper Headie One for Audacity, on which he references the Union Jack emblazoned, Banksy-designed stab vest he famously donned on stage at Glastonbury.

He recounts the pressure that accompanied the style statement while the beat suddenly fades out to magnify his words: “When Banksy put the vest on me, felt like God was testing me.”

Crown, which peaked at number four in the UK charts, marks a drastic shift in the tone of the album, seeing Stormzy pause for a moment of quiet self-reflection to weigh up the responsibilities that come with his leadership after listing his unrivaled achievements.

An uplifting response to negativity comes on Rainfall, which features ingeniously sampled elements of Shackles (Praise You) by gospel duo Mary Mary and the soulful layered vocals of Tiana Major9, revolving around the hook “Let the rain fall on my enemies”, hinting at the artist’s widely documented “grime beef” involving Wiley and Ed Sheeran.

Rachael’s Little Brother samples an auto-tuned rendition of Big Brovaz’s Baby Boy, leading into a frank discussion about mental health, as Stormzy admits: “I bottle up then I spill it to my therapist.” He goes on to croon in a heartfelt declaration about appreciating “the little things in life”.

The rapper’s self-aggrandising verses return in Handsome, (“Young, fly and handsome”) spat alongside a jagged beat with a distorted electronic piano accompaniment, as he encourages the next generation to step up and claim their rights, while taunting critics: “Diss me if you dare”.

Stormzy dedicates a portion of his notoriously pitchy, but sincere, vocals on Do Better to God for saving him after he “nearly fell into the ground”. Rousing backing vocals resonate throughout, providing a comforting but stirring message for the BRIT Award winner: “Everything is okay but I need you to do better”.

Don’t Forget to Breathe features Mark Ronson’s Late Night Feelings collaborator YEBBA, who lends her hauntingly beautiful voice to advise: “Chase your dreams, you don’t have time to sleep.”

Stormzy is joined by Grammy Award-winning American singer and songwriter H.E.R. for One Second, which outlines his social conscience inspired by his Ghanian single mother’s words: “Mummy always said if there’s a cause I should fight for it.” He also takes a moment to pay homage to those who strive to make a difference without being acknowledged, adding: “There’s people fighting every day and they don’t get the credit”.

A clear banger then emerges in Pop Boy, a collaborative track with breakout rapper and Taste hitmaker Aitch, whose distinctive Mancunian drawl adds humorous bravado to Stormzy claiming his transcendence from grime to pop music: “I’ll never stop popping, I’m the pop boy”.

Singles Own It (featuring Ed Sheeran and Burna Boy) and Wiley Flow arrive next, with the former representing the “pop boy” jewel in Stormzy’s crown and the latter saluting the godfather of grime.

Stormzy goes on to issue several bars in Bronze to harshly remind other rappers of his chart-topping command of the game: “Anything I drop top 40,” while citing NBA champion LeBron James for further impact: “Ball like LeBron this year”.

  • Piers Morgan: GMB star reacts to Boris Johnson’s thoughts on Stormzy

One of the most unexpected moments of the album, however, can be heard in Superheroes, which samples The Tracy Beaker Show’s intro Someday, bringing a nostalgic feel. The lyrics are dedicated to “young black kings” and “young black queens”, championing the next generation, as Stormzy insists: “The world ain’t ready for your magic yet.”

Lessons provides the rapper with one last opportunity for self-analysis in a deeply personal reflection on a failed relationship after the hip-hop star split from his girlfriend of four years, Radio 1 DJ Maya Jama, earlier this year. He seems to admit to some wrongdoing on his part with the words: “If I were you, I’d be unforgiving too,” after owning up to being “such a handful”.

Although he laments the loss of the romance, Stormzy appears to have no resentment about the situation and poignantly shares a realisation about the impact his ex had on his emotional growth: “You taught me love, oh what a gift.”

Heavy Is The Head aptly concludes with infectiously catchy hit Vossi Bop, which marked the star’s first UK number one single. This epic finale not only validates Stormzy’s unparalleled ascension to the peak of pop music, but also celebrates and appreciates the inner dilemmas he has faced during his journey to his crowning achievement.

Freddie Mercury left quite the first impression with those who knew him. And now German record producer Reinhold Mack – who worked on four Queen albums and Mr Bad Guy – has revealed his “really, really funny” first meeting with the Queen singer. Speaking with uDiscover Music, the 70-year-old said: “I remember our first meeting in 1980 very well.”

Mack continued: “I was working with Gary Moore in Los Angeles and was told Queen would be in Musicland Studios, in Munich, and might need me. 

“I bought a plane ticket and went to Munich. 

“When I met Freddie, he said, ‘What are you doing here?’ 

“I told him I had heard there might be a good chance Queen wanted to work with me.”

“It was early summertime and we knew it was very nice outside, so we headed to the Chinese Tower for a couple of beers.

“What happened next was really, really funny.”

Mack revealed: “Freddie was wearing ballerina shoes, and shorts that matched his Hawaiian shirt. 

“The beer garden was packed with full tables and about 8,000 to 10,000 people were there, all told. 

“We had to walk right through this huge crowd. 

“We walked next to each other, his arm hooked through mine, with all his other people walking behind us, and it must have looked really weird.”

“Freddie assured me that he couldn’t play guitar, but he would play the melody for me anyway. 

“I just ended up recording the whole impromptu thing he did. A couple of hours later, drummer Roger Taylor and Deacy [John Deacon] arrived – and I asked them if they wanted to listen to the song.”

Mack added: “They weren’t sure and thought the studio I had set up was a bit basic. 

“I said, ‘Why not give it a listen – it’s three minutes out of your life and it won’t hurt. If you hate it.’ 

“I told them, ‘I can just wipe the tape and it’s gone.’ They checked it out and said, ‘Oh, this is really good – we should finish this’. 

“This is how working with them started and a few hours later we had the brilliant Crazy Little Thing Called Love finished – and it was the song Freddie wrote in his Munich hotel.”

Lizzo Named Time’s Entertainer Of The Year

Lizzo is Time’s Entertainer of the Year ’cause 2019 loved her.

The “Cuz I Love You” singer and rapper was recognized in Time for her “relentlessly positive and impossibly catchy” sound, her body positivity and her advocacy for self-love, the magazine announced Wednesday. 

“Attending a Lizzo concert feels like worshipping at the church of self-love, if your preacher was a pop star living joyfully in a big black body, delivering a sermon of self-acceptance that’s as frank as it is accessible,” author Samantha Irby wrote for Time.  

Lizzo, a 31-year-old classically trained flutist, had a monumental year in the spotlight.

Her song “Truth Hurts,” off her “Cuz I Love You” album, reached the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in September. She memorably channeled scenes from the 1993 film “Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit” for an awe-inspiring performance at the MTV Movie & TV Awards in June. Last month, she scored eight Grammy nominations — the most 2020 Grammy nods of any artist. 

Lizzo, who has been performing and releasing music for years — her now-Grammy-nominated hit “Truth Hurts” was first released in 2017 — told Time that she has been creating “positive music for a long-ass time” prior to her successes this year.

“Then the culture changed,” she said. “There were a lot of things that weren’t popular but existed, like body positivity, which at first was a form of protest for fat bodies and black women and has now become a trendy, commercialized thing. Now I’ve seen it reach the mainstream. Suddenly I’m mainstream!”

She added, “How could we have guessed something like this would happen when we’ve never seen anything like this before?”

Earlier this week, Lizzo shared an uplifting video message to her fans, telling them that they’re “capable,” after she received some criticism on social media for twerking on the Jumbotron at a Los Angeles Lakers game, wearing a black T-shirt dress with a cutout that showed her thong. 

Many people came to Lizzo’s defense on Twitter, calling out much of the criticism as fatphobic, while celebrating the singer for being unapologetic.

Lizzo celebrated her Entertainer of the Year title on Twitter on Wednesday. 

“ARE… YOU… NOT… ENTERTAINED?!?” she tweeted.

Lucifer season 5: Will Ella find out that Lucifer is really the devil?

Lucifer season five will be the final series of the supernatural comedy-drama. Tom Ellis stars as the fallen angel, Lucifer Morningstar and at the end of season four, he returned to hell to become its ruler. In season five, Lucifer comes back to Earth but will he finally show Ella Lopez (played by Aimee Garcia) his devil face?

During the past four seasons, Lucifer has been very open about his true identity as the fallen angel, Lucifer Morningstar.

However, nobody in his inner circle believes him, apart from his brother Amendiel (DB Woodside), who is also an angel, and his friend Maze (Lesley Ann-Brandt) who is a demon.

It was not until the end of season three that Lucifer’s love interest, Chloe Decker (Lauren German) learned of his true identity.

Throughout season four, Lucifer continuously told his colleague and close friend LAPD forensic scientist, Ella Lopez, that he was in the devil but inevitably, she never believed him.

Actress Aimee Garcia who plays Ella Lopez spoke to Entertainment Tonight about Ella and Lucifer’s relationship in the fifth and final season.

Garcia explained that she believed their relationship would change “too much” if she ever knew the truth about Lucifer.

She said: “I love that she doesn’t know because she can say things like, ‘Oh, that’s right you’re the devil. AKA method actor.’

“So, I don’t want to take that fun away from her, especially now that Chloe knows.

“I love when he’s like, ‘You know, my dad, God.’ And Ella can be like, ‘Oh right, your dad, God.’“

Garcia also said that Ella being obvious to Lucifer’s true identity provides relief to some of the more serious personal things that Lucifer experiences on Earth.

She said: “I just think it’s so fun that she can rib him as just being an unemployed actor that can’t catch a break and needs a hug.

“And is like this really sensitive guy. I love that he’s one of the most powerful celestial beings in the history of the world and she’s like, ‘He’s really sensitive you guys.’”

Speaking about how Ella would react to Lucifer’s devil face, Garcia said: “I think she would hug him.

“What I love about her is that she is like a real-life angel. She is not judgemental.

“She gives people the benefit of the doubt, she sees the best in people and so I think in the same way, she would be consistent with that, even with the devil because we have heard her say before ‘the devil was a fallen angel’.

“And she specifically said, ‘If you were ever an angel, even a fallen angel, it means that you can’t possibly be all bad.’ So I think she would be really consistent with that and just have a lot of questions.”

This Morning shut down claims Phillip Schofield will be replaced amid ‘feud’ report

Phillip Schofield, 57, is a regular presenter on This Morning, hosting the proceedings alongside Holly Willoughby, 38, for four days a week. However, it was an interaction with Ruth Langsford, 59, from earlier this year which an article from The Sun was referring to when they published the false reports about a complaint. ITV have since denied any feud had taken place and now, they have confirmed the presenter will not be replaced.

According to The Sun, bosses thought Good Morning Britain star Ben Shephard, 44, would be a possible contender to fill in for Phillip.

The reports state the Ninja Warrior host showed “great chemistry” with Holly whilst presenting alongside her earlier this year.

It continues to say ITV Daytime boss Emma Gormley had her sights on the newscaster if Phillip were ever to leave the hit programme.

However, a spokesperson for the broadcaster denied any speculation of the latter being replaced when approached for comment by Express.co.uk.

They confirmed the claims were “untrue”, following denial eight ITV presenters had complained about a “toxic” atmosphere on the set.

“It’s deeply disappointing and unfair for Phillip to be the target of this sort of malicious gossip,” a representative told Express.co.uk.

“Phillip is a much respected broadcaster and colleague and this is absolutely not a description of This Morning that we recognise.”

The reports of a feud with Ruth were exacerbated when a moment resurfaced from April where the host cut off the Loose Woman presenter.

During a crossover link with This Morning’s sister show, Ruth was informing viewers about what was coming up on the show.

However, Phillip had to interject as he and Holly needed to run another link, but it seemed his colleague wasn’t happy.

The panellist seemingly threw down her pen as she said: “Well I only had about two more words to say… don’t worry.”

He told her before Ruth’s reaction: “Guys, we are going to have to jump in there and stop you I’m afraid.

Angry Jeremy Vine viewer hits back at NHS attack ‘This would have happened under Labour!’

Jeremy Vine welcomed Tony Blackburn, James Max and Jemma Forte onto his Channel 5 show this morning to chat about a number of topics. One of the major talking points was whether or not the row over a boy’s hospital treatment cost Boris Johnson viewers’ vote? The Prime Minister refused to look at a photo of a four-year-old lying on a hospital floor, eventually putting the reporter’s phone in his pocket.

One angry viewer slammed the use of the clip to damage the Conservative Party’s campaign as they insisted the NHS would still be in trouble if Labour were running the country.

Storm noted: “Next we’re going to speak to Susan from Hampshire, who says this incident shouldn’t be blamed on any particular party.”

“The incident of the young lad on the floor Susan?” Jeremy asked.

Susan replied: “Good morning. I think that this will have happened if Labour were in charge as well.

“The issue is that Boris Johnson didn’t seem able to say what he probably have should have done, which is to look at the photo and say, ‘That is terrible. I’m on it and by this afternoon I will give you some answers.’

“He couldn’t say that.”

Susan added: “I agree he handled it wrong but I don’t think it was a mobile phone that was put in his hand when it was put in his pocket.”

“He didn’t think it was a phone?” Jeremy asked looking rather puzzled.

Susan confirmed: “No. I think he probably thought it was a picture.”

“There’s a certain weight to a phone, that would not stand up in court Susan,” Jeremy hit back.

“They’ve also said, and they’ve looked at all the manifestos, the promises that have been made in manifestos are not physically possible. The plans are not credible.”

“Well, I think it has to be a political decision whether we have an NHS, how it’s funded and what political parties decide they are going to do with it if they gain a majority in the next Parliament” Corbyn replied.

“The NHS has to be properly funded and at the moment it isn’t.”

“And, on a more educational level, the issues surrounding nurse training, doctor training and the funding that goes behind that because we have what, 40,000 nurse vacancies in the NHS, we have buildings crumbling, we have very expensive deals on which some of those places were built and we have privatisation within the NHS, which often doesn’t fit in with the NHS culture.”

Chris Evans: Virgin Radio host left mortified after major Christmas dinner revelation

Chris Evans, 53, had quite the shock last week when he welcomed fourth generation turkey farmer Tom Copas, to his Virgin Radio show to talk about the traditional Christmas feast. In a very hands-on demonstration, the farmer revealed that there is a specific way to cut a turkey to ensure you get the best tasting slices of meat.

Oh my God, you cut across. I always went in line with the spine!

Chris Evans

Tom, from Copas Traditional Turkeys, explained that he had reared over 40, 000 turkeys this year alone, a figure that had risen considerably from the 153 birds his father started out with when he began the business.

“Wow, 153?!” Chris exclaimed, surprised at the significant growth.

The farmer then produced a defrosted turkey he had brought with him to the show to demonstrate how to professionally carve the bird to enjoy its succulent meat.

“I started cooking this at 4 o’clock this morning, it’s been a complete first for me, I’ve never cooked a turnkey that early in the morning!” He laughed.

He suggested flipping the turkey upside down after an hour of cooking, so the fat juices can soak into the breast meat, adding to the flavour.

The Virgin Radio DJ could be heard in the background moaning, clearly the smell of the turkey was making him and the team hungry!

He suggested they move on to carving the bird next and it was here that he was left shocked to find out he had been doing it wrong his whole life.

“Can you give us a fool proof, bluffers guide to carving a turkey?” He asked.

The farmer demonstrated his method while talking Chris and the team through each step: “Grab the leg like that and cut down the inside of the leg, then cut down the other side and pull away.

The radio team could be heard arguing over a piece of leg meat, as listeners heard Chris run away from the mic as someone shouted: “No! I wanted that bit!”

Despite the commotion, Tom carried on: “Securely put the carving fork into the breast meat.”

Chris quizzed: “What’s the first incision? Because people get it wrong all the time.”

The farmer explained the angle the knife needed to be at: “You want to go just kind of in the middle of the breast just to kind of get a centre, a centre of the breast, where you just get a really good firm secure hold on it.

“Then we’ve got to cut diagonally across a breast like we know with wood you cut across the grain, so, we are going to cut across the breast just like that,” he said.

Chris was shocked by the revelation, telling Tom: “Oh my God, you cut across. I always went in line with the spine!” He exclaimed, through mouthfuls of turkey.

Tom replied: “There you go. Because you’ve got the wing and the leg out of the way, you can cut across, and you want nice thick slices.”

The radio DJ was bemused: “And that’s where you get the nice shape as well. The steak shape almost. Well there you go.”
