The chicken nugget Reddit scandal and our favourite polls from the week including what is no longer selling in shops (drones and suspenders) and what not to say on a date.
And of course, it's the Wagatha Christie scandal. Coleen Rooney masked as Poirot outed fellow WAG Rebekah Vardy as the person she believed to be leaking false stories about her to the tabloids. Coleen social's media post went viral and soon Netflix were wondering if they should launch a series about it, Keira Knightley offered to play Coleen, and Paul Rudd just looked baffled. How and why did this story gather such extraordinary reach? Is it anything to do with feminism? What does it say about the way celebrities now use social media? And our perception of WAGs? And DID SHE DO IT?
The High Low is now on tour - thank you to everyone who came to the Barbican on the 12th, see some more of you in Dublin on the 20th!
