17 December 2014 3:50 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Alan Carr impersonates the likes of Gemma Collins and Cheryl in this year's New Year Specstacular.

In a sketch for the New Year's Eve show, Carr parodies 24 Hours in Police Custody and takes us into the celebrity slammer, where Cheryl is trying to talk her way out of a charge for miming on The X Factor.

Next into custody is Gemma Collins, who after 56 seconds behind bars is already at breaking point.

The madness of prison gets to the star as she starts confessing to a range of odd crimes, including her love for Made in Chelsea.

Carr, as Collins, says: "Oh it's doing me 'ead in, I'll confess to anyfink - I've just got to get out... I hid Arg... I killed Lucy Beale... I prefer Made in Chelsea, anything babes... I'm just so hungry... I can't fink when I'm hungry."

15. Mad Men

Season 7, Part 1 of Mad Men should have been incredibly frustrating. Inspired by Breaking Bad, the show decided to have it final run split into two parts over two years and it originally sounded like an excuse to eke out the Don Draper franchise for another 12 months. We couldn't have been more wrong.

James Murdoch Says 21st Century Fox has ‘Clear Succession Plan’

9 December 2014 6:39 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As media barons like Sumner Redstone and Rupert Murdoch began to show more mileage, questions of succession at the companies they run inevitably arise.

James Murdoch is no stranger to that kind of speculation. The 21st Century Fox co-chief operating officer stopped short of mapping out what the future holds for the entertainment conglomerate, but he did tout the combined experience of the company’s leadership, ticking off the names of Chief Operating Officer Chase Carey and Chief Financial Officer John Nallen, while fielding a question at the Ubs Global Media and Entertainment Conference on Tuesday about what will happen when his father steps down or dies.

“We do have a pretty clear succession plan,” said Murdoch, arguing that 21st Century Fox has been more transparent than its rivals in signaling how its future leadership might manifest.

New Celebrity Big Brother 'twisted fairytale' eye logo revealed

8 December 2014 3:14 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Channel 5 has unveiled the new 'eye logo' for next year's Celebrity Big Brother.

The new logo sees the 'pupil' of the eye formed of a moon, with the outline of the eye covered in twisted vines. The logo is entirely black and dark blue, to fit with the menacing "twisted fairytale" theme of the upcoming series.

The reality show returns to the channel in January and the house will have "whimsical elements that conjure up a magical atmosphere full of possibility and curiosity" - although there will also be hints at something more sinister lurking in the shadows.

Although the identities of next year's contestants are yet to be revealed, Calum Best, Patsy Kensit and The X Factor's Stevi Ritchie are among those who have been rumoured to appear on the show.

Gary Busey won the September 2014 series of the show, with boxer Audley Harrison finishing in second place. »

Kathryn Bigelow’s Proto.Fight Club Art Film Surfaces at MoMA

17 November 2014 2:14 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In a 1995 interview, director Kathryn Bigelow (of Zero Dark Thirty and The Hurt Locker fame) recalled filming The Set-Up — her experimental short film that she ended up submitting as her Mfa thesis with Columbia University. It also happened to be her first cinematic endeavor. “I started shooting at about 9pm and finished at 7am,” she said. “It was in an alley off White Street downtown, and it started to snow.” In it, two men (one played by Gary Busey) pummeled each other to a bloody pulp, accompanied by a voice-over of two philosophy professors providing dry commentary. “I knew exactly what I wanted,” said Bigelow. “But I didn’t understand that you fake shots and fake hits and put sound effects in.” As a result, “these guys were getting bloodier and bloodier. They were in bed for two weeks after, I almost killed them.” With French structuralist theory among »

Fox swaps 'Mulaney' & 'Bob's Burger's' timeslots

11 November 2014 4:50 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The slow, inexorable shuffle towards cancellation continues for "Mulaney," as Fox today decided to have it swap timeslots with "Bob's Burgers," effective immediately. Starting this Sunday, "Bob's" — which has been airing very irregularly this fall due to Fox's Sunday football and baseball commitments — will air at 9:30 after "Family Guy." Fox has the late NFL game this weekend, so "Mulaney" won't begin airing at 7:30 until the following Sunday, November 23. Fox had already reduced the episode order for "Mulaney" from 16 to 13 (the number of episodes that had already been produced at the time the decision was made), and its ratings have hovered around a 1.0 in the demo (or, as Fienberg has dubbed it, The Mulaney Line). It's playing out the string at this point, as a low-rated show ordered by Kevin Reilly, and produced by an outside studio, while Reilly's replacements, Dana Walden and Gary Newman, also have control of 20th Television. »

Roy Keane confirms I'm a Celebrity meeting: 'Who knows?'

30 October 2014 4:15 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Roy Keane has confirmed that he has met with the producers of I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!.

The former Manchester United midfielder and current assistant manager at Aston Villa told Shortlist that he had initially rejected the approach.

Asked about a move into acting like Eric Cantona and Vinnie Jones, Keane said: "Well, I couldn't see it, but I am more open to stuff now. I've had the Celebrity Big Brother offers and the jungle stuff [I'm a Celebrity].

"I met the jungle people, but I thought, 'Nah, not for me'. But the more you say no, the more determined they are to get you, so who knows? There's more to life than football."

Quizzed on the last film he saw, Keane said: "Gone Girl. Rubbish. Absolute rubbish.

"I went with a couple of lads from the Irish team, but if I was on my own, honestly, I would've walked out. »

8 amazing rock 'n' roll transformations: From Gary Oldman to Cate Blanchett

24 October 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The long-awaited Jimi Hendrix biopic All By My Side opens in cinemas today (October 24).

Andre '3000' Benjamin plays the iconic musician in the movie, which depicts Jimi's humble beginnings to becoming possibly the world's greatest guitarist.

This has inspired us to compile our own list of the greatest portrayals of musicians in rock 'n' roll biopics, often going above and beyond mere physical transformation:

1. Andy Serkis as Ian Dury

Andy Serkis was BAFTA nominated for his critically-acclaimed role - played to perfection - as charismatic '70s punk rock singer and songwriter Ian Dury in Mat Whitecross's 2010 biopic Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll.

To portray Dury's physical condition - he contracted polio as a child - Serkis lost two stone and built up the muscle mass on the right-hand side of his body so the other side was weaker.

He added: "I had a body wax. It's the most »

Getting under the skin of Anaconda

23 October 2014 2:34 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Nineties giant snake movie Anaconda comes under James's microscope. Could it be more than just another scaly B-movie?

"You don't know shit about the shit we're in here!" Gary Dixon (Owen Wilson) in Anaconda. That sentence pretty accurately sums up most people's appreciation of both the movie Anaconda, life in general and the state of the Universe. When you've finished reading this article, you will know some shit.

Do you remember Anaconda? The 1997 killer snake film starring Jennifer Lopez, Ice Cube and Jon Voight? It had the tagline "When you can't breathe you can't scream"? It got nominated for six Razzies but, in spite of such ignominy, went on to become a cult hit and spawned three sequels?

Until a couple of weeks ago I didn't remember Anaconda because I'd never seen it. Somehow this pleasure had passed me by, and it existed as a sizeable hole in my pop »

Cheers, Moe's, Queen Vic: What is TV's best pub?

18 October 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Men Behaving Badly made a brief return in the form of a one-off sketch last night (October 13) as part of the Stand Up To Cancer telethon on Channel 4.

One of the highlights of the original series was Gary (Martin Clunes) and Tony's (Neil Morrissey) quest to find a new pub after The Crown gets a revamp. Gary's system of ranking their locals with different categories is a great tool for real-life pub crawls after moving somewhere new. Try it!

With this in mind, we pondered which pubs from TV history would rank well using a system similar to Gary's? We've chosen just a handful of famous watering holes in order to find the best one. The only rule is that they need to serve alcoholic drinks, so Central Perk doesn't count.
