It’s no secret that here at Style we love a bit of pop culture. So much so that a cheeky Friday afternoon chat about the latest Kardashian gossip is one of our favourite past-times. If it’s ridiculous, we love it; and if it’s far-fetched we love it even more. What can I say, we’re just suckers for a good story.

So, what better way to kick-start a year of impending celebrity catastrophes than with our list of pop culture predictions for 2018? From circular iPhones to Kylie Jenner’s pregnancy, we’re predicting a rollercoaster ride of emotions in 2018. So, strap in kids, this is gonna be one hell of a journey.

1. Tammy Hembrow and her family will get their own reality television show (why not kick-start this list with something that actually seems possible, right?).

2. Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez will get engaged and not a single person will be shocked.

12. Snapchat will keep bringing out updates that everyone hates. Eventually, the program will become obsolete. Instagram will be subtly smirking in the background.
