Believe it or not, already has a contender for best Australian show of the year: Stan series Bump, which dropped its first season of 10 half-hour episodes on New Year's Day. The show was soon trending on Twitter as many — either stuck home due to COVID restrictions or perhaps recovering from some of the previous night's festivities — were sucked in by its charm. According to the streaming service, the series has already "broken viewing records for Stan since its launch". At the start of the series, we meet Olympia Oly Chalmers-Davis, an ambitious, painfully-determined inner-Sydney high school student who has a year plan that begins with blitzing her way through her remaining years of high school and ends with her working at the United Nations. But those plans are thrown into disarray when she unexpectedly goes into labour at school. Writhing around in the back of an ambulance and informed by the paramedic that she's about to give birth, the year-old reacts — as anyone would react when faced with little-to-no warning about what's about to come out of one's birth canal — with: "No way!

SYDNEY: A four-year-old Australian girl who went missing during a family camping trip 18 days ago was discovered "alive and well" during a raid on a locked house Wednesday Nov 3 , telling her shocked and elated rescuers: "My name is Cleo. Cleo Smith disappeared from her family's tent in remote Western Australia last month, sparking a frantic air, sea and ground search involving officers and scores of volunteers. Many feared the search would end in tragedy, but after a night raid on a home in the coastal town of Carnarvon - just a short drive from where she disappeared - police announced the little girl had been found alone, but alive. Blaine said that after the initial shock he asked the little girl her name three times before receiving her electrifying response: "My name is Cleo. Police admitted "seasoned detectives" were "openly crying with relief" at the discovery and when Cleo was reunited with her parents at a hospital a short time later. Her mother Ellie took to social media to express her relief. Police later released an image of the beaming youngster on a hospital bed holding an ice pop, waving and smiling. It's something we all hoped in our hearts, and it's come true," police deputy commissioner Col Blanch said.
