Jim Davidson wins Celebrity Big Brother - and Lee Ryan loses it

This year's Celebrity Big Brother prompted a lot of soul searching as Jim Davidson ended up taking the crown - after striking up a bromance with Dappy. But it wasn't actually this winning moment that made January's CBB so captivating - instead, it was Lee Ryan's inability to keep it in his pants (and Casey Batchelor's mum shrieking: "He's mugging you off, »

14 December 2014 9:03 PM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Bolly Flex have done it again! On Thursday 11th December we saw history in the making from none other than the choreographer of our favourite Bollywood dance group, Bolly Flex. Leena Patel was commissioned by the BBC to work with will.i.am for a Bollywood inspired fusion of his song ‘It’s My Birthday’ which is a western track influenced by the popular Ar Rahman song ‘Urvashi’. The act was part of the very first BBC Music Awards event, which aired live from Earls Court and featured artists such as Sir Tom Jones, Coldplay, One Direction, Ellie Goulding, George Ezra, Take That, Labrinth, Ella Henderson, Calvin Harris, Ed Sheeran and may more.

We saw Leena’s delicate and authentic Bollywood choreography start the piece with top end commercial dancers. The choreography was accessible for all audiences and a true representation of the art of Bollywood dance. As the atmosphere gradually built up, »

12 December 2014 8:15 AM, PST | Virgin Media - TV | See recent Virgin Media - TV news »

Rita Ora's personality is ''coming across'' well on 'The Voice', according to Sir Tom Jones. The 74-year-old star has revealed his new colleague has been a hit during filming for the upcoming series of the BBC One talent show after replacing Kylie Minogue on the judging panel. Speaking at the BBC Music Awards at London's Earls Court last night (12.12.14), he said: ''Rita is great, she's fresh and she's what's happening now.

Tom Jones: 'Rita Ora's personality is coming across on The Voice'

12 December 2014 4:15 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Sir Tom Jones has shared his thoughts on Rita Ora, saying that she's "great" addition to The Voice.

The Welsh singer spoke to Digital Spy and others at the BBC Music Awards, saying that Ora is filling her new seat on the BBC One talent show "very well".

"Rita is great, she's fresh and she's what's happening now," said Jones.

"She fills that seat very well, because I think that's the hardest seat when a lady has to fill that, because there's three fellas there and one girl. So that's a big chair for her to fill, and she's filling it really great, she's in there.

"Her personality is coming across. Jessie J's personality came across, Kylie Minogue's personality and now Rita's coming across, so it's different because they're three different people."

Jones performed 'God Only Knows' at the awards alongside Paloma Faith.

Rita Ora wants to be The Voice contestants' friend

24 November 2014 1:15 AM, PST | Virgin Media - TV | See recent Virgin Media - TV news »

Rita Ora wants to be a ''friend'' to 'The Voice' contestants. The 23-year-old singer initially found it difficult to critique the hopefuls on the show because she isn't as experienced as fellow coaches Sir Tom Jones, Ricky Wilson and will.i.am and didn't want to come across as too egotistical. She said: ''In the beginning I can tell you that, for me, to coach the contestants was only difficult because I know I'm only a 23-year-old girl on my second album. ''I didn't want them to think that I was Miss Know It All. I wanted them to think I'm a friend they can »

The Voice will.i.am on Rita: 'I don't know who else we could have got'

25 September 2014 4:54 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

The Voice UK judge will.i.am has admitted that he doesn't know who apart from Rita Ora could have filled Kylie Minogue's spot on the panel.

Earlier this week, the BBC confirmed rumours that Ora will join will.i.am, Ricky Wilson and Sir Tom Jones for the next series of the singing competition.

The Black Eyed Peas star has now told The Mirror that he is pleased with the appointment, although he admitted that he wishes Minogue had not left.

"She's nice," he said of Minogue. "I like nice people. She's kind and fun, you know? They don't put their mask on all the time to show you their professional side. Kylie's one of those girls - and so is Rita."

He added: "If it wasn't Rita, I wouldn't have done it. So I'm happy that it's Rita. Because when Kylie left I was like, 'Who »

Let's all relive Rita Ora's Eurovision audition: What could have been

23 September 2014 3:51 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

It's confirmed - Rita Ora is the newest coach on The Voice and will be joining Sir Tom Jones, will.i.am and Ricky Wilson on those big red spinning chairs for next year's series.

But all this Rita talk got us reminiscing about that time she auditioned for Eurovision in 2009. Yup. If you fancy, you can relive her time on reality show Your Country Needs You below:

In fact, Andrew Lloyd Webber loved himself a bit of Rita, and she was selected to compete. But in a shocking lack of patriotism, she decided to skip the whole thing and Jade Ewen was brought in instead.

As if that wasn't enough, she chucked a rather sizeable amount of shade at Ewen when she spoke about being glad she pulled out, saying: "Imagine! If I'd stayed, it would probably have been all over for me. At best, I'd be a contestant on that diving show… »

10 Songs That Became More Famous Than Their Movies

21 June 2014 9:49 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Paramount/Universal

You know the songs. They’re part of the songbook of standards. You’ve heard them on every TV singing contest, belted out by a cut price Leona Lewis to the back of a chair while Sir Tom Jones mouths the words to show that he too recognises a famous classic. You’ve endured them slurringly stumbled over and shouted at every drunken karaoke session. Even if you think they’re terrible music (and with reasonable justification in some cases) you secretly know all the words. You’ve seen them used on so many inspirational or romantic montages that they’re more likely to be used in parodic moments nowadays than anything vaguely genuine, but have you seen the movies that they come from?

From the 50s crooner golden age through the big hair and big ballads of the 80s and on to anything starring Will Smith in »

A source told The Sun on Sunday newspaper: ''The bosses are desperate to sign someone brilliant to replace Kylie. But the first question they are asked at every meeting is: 'Who else is involved?'
