"I love a good Netflix romcom. Give me a bowl of popcorn, my favourite chocolates and sit me down under the covers on a Friday night, and I'll be content with whatever the latest offering on the streaming service is. But I have to say, The Kissing Booth 2 actually exceeded my expectations – see my full review for the film here.

"The sequel sees Elle Evans return to high school with her best friend, Lee, for their senior year, while she tries desperately to make her long-distance relationship with Noah work. Joey King and Joel Courtney both reprised their roles as Elle and Lee – and I was lucky enough to catch up with the stars ahead of the release of the film on 24 July.

"We spoke about everything from where their characters are now to their real-life friendship – and even learnt what their favourite Cape Town spots are, since most of the filming took place in the Mother City." - Bashiera Parker
