Doctor Who and tabloid rumours: when have they got it right?

Mark Harrison Aug 24, 2017

When have tabloid rumours been spot on about Doctor Who, and when have they been, er, less accurate?

“Look Who's the Doc's new assistant!” On Tuesday, the Mirror's front page trumpeted an exclusive reveal that Bradley Walsh would be Jodie Whittaker's companion in the new series of Doctor Who.

The one-time Sarah Jane Adventures guest star would be the first companion actor to have hosted a quiz show with the same name as a 1960s serial, but beyond trivia, the report has been fairly well received as far as we can see – Walsh is a decent actor, who's worked with incoming executive producer Chris Chibnall before on Law & Order UK, and a fun screen presence. But given the source, might it all be a load of bobbins?

Craig David would consider a judging role on 'The X Factor'. The ITV talent show is looking for a replacement after Nick Grimshaw announced he would be stepping down after a year on the panel and the 'When The Bassline Drops' hitmaker believes being a music artist himself would make him more ''honest'' with the hopefuls.

Dermot O'Leary thinks X Factor needs 12-month hiatus

Dermot O'Leary thinks 'The X Factor' needs to take a break. The 42-year-old presenter, who hosted the singing competition for seven years until he was dropped and replaced by Caroline Flack and Olly Murs last year, thinks the show needs to have a 12-month hiatus, or risk losing viewers forever, because the new changes have turned people away. He explained: ''If I was Simon Cowell, I'd take it off air for a year. I'd rest it, and then I'd get back to the rooms. For me, it was always room, arena, boot camp. Also I was really uncomfortable about the Six-Chair

Peter Capaldi doesn't want K-9 to return to Doctor Who

Caroline Flack believes women face ''more criticism'' than men in the TV industry. The 36-year-old presenter and her 'X Factor' co-host Olly Murs have been on the receiving end of abuse from Twitter trolls since taking over from Dermot O'Leary earlier this year, but she believes she has it harder than the 'Kiss Me' singer because people make comments about her weight and appearance as well as her presenting skills. She said: ''It's a lot harder to be a woman on TV. We have to face more criticism.'' And the 'Love Island' host says she and her presenter pals turn to each other

The X Factor 2015: Twitter talks all the standout acts and bizarre moments from the first live show

Tonight we finally reached the first live show of The X Factor 2015 - so it was a pretty important episode tonight to say the least!

We saw some spectacular performances, as well as that Adele rendition - yes, we're trying to block it out too. Plus there was Rita's hair, which drew a fair few comparisons.

Digital Spy was watching along, and rounded up the best Twitter reactions of the evening.

A lot of people were missing Dermot:

Don't get me wrong I love olly and caroline but I miss dermot. He was so smooth when it came to presenting. #XFactor

The X Factor 2015: Everything you need to know including the judges, airdates and rumours

The X Factor is well and truly under way, and we've been keeping an eye on everything that's been going on...

When is The X Factor on TV?

The show kicked off on August 29 - and in fact, in an attempt to avoid any clashes with Strictly Come Dancing, ITV bosses have unveiled the full schedule right from the off, so we know everything that's coming. You can get a proper look at it here, but auditions continued until Saturday, September 19 with Boot Camp kicking off on September 20. That was the first of five boot camp shows - two set in a country house, and then three episodes of the dreaded Six Chair Challenge. They were all on Sundays, to avoid the Rugby World Cup, but then Judges' Houses aired on October 24 and October 25... and the first big live show will kick off on October 31. And the grand final? It's set for Sunday,
