The remake comes 30 years after the original film’s release and it’s already divided opinion on Twitter.

The cast certainly have big shoes to fill and have recorded updated versions of hit songs from the soundtrack, including ‘Time Of My Life’, ‘Hungry Eyes’ and Patrick Swayze’s ‘She’s Like The Wind’.

She told the Daily Mail: “I was like a crazy thing because, my family, my Papa’s a Bishop and my family’s really hardcore against abortion.
