The future can be a scary place, we get it.

That’s why your good friend heat has gone far into 2016, had a good look around and discovered what we’ll all be talking about over the next 12 months, just so you can get a head start on everyone else.

We don’t actually have a time machine (well, we might, but we wouldn’t admit it if we did), so we used a combination of industry contacts, close attention, expertise and good old-fashioned educated guesswork to predict the big trends in celebrity, entertainment, fitness, fashion, eating, fiction and lifestyle – everything that matters.

We couldn’t get the lottery numbers, sadly, but then you’d all be sharing the jackpot between you anyway, so it wouldn’t have worked out to much.

2016's Jessica Ennis-Hil is...
Jessica Ennis-Hill

2016's Jessica Ennis-Hill is... Katarina Johnson-Thompson!

Katarina Johnson-Thompson

The mega-athletes don’t just share double-barrelled names – they’re heptathlon team-mates, and Katarina is a major medal-contender for 2016’s Olympics.

Daisy Ridley

2016's Daisy Ridley is.... Gal Gadot!

Gal Gadot

The Israeli Fast & Furious star is Wonder Woman in Batman vs Superman: Dawn Of Justice. Sorry, Rey, that makes her the new female ass-kicker on the block.

Katie Hopkins

2016's Katie Hopkins is... Donald Trump!

Donald Trump

Katie got on our nerves; US presidential hopeful Donald Trump is getting on the world’s nerves. And he’s a fan of hers, too.

Taylor Swift

** 2016's Taylor Swift is... Alessia Cara!**

Alessia Cara

Taylor is a guitar-playing singer/songwriter with a squad including Lena Dunham, Cara Delevingne and Gigi Hadid. Alessia is a guitar-playing singer/songwriter who’s mates with Lorde, Drake, oh, and Taylor Swift. So she wins, right?

Jennifer Lawrence

2016's Jennifer Lawrence is... Alicia Vikander!

Alicia Vikander

You might sort-of know Swedish actress Alicia from Ex Machina or The Man From U.N.C.L.E. But she’s going to be huge this year thanks to Oscar-bait The Danish Girl, in which she plays the wife of Eddie Redmayne’s transgender pioneer Lili Elbe. She’s also in the new Bourne film, the first with Matt Damon since 2007’s The Bourne Ultimatum. Bring on the trophies!
