25 January 2015 1:15 AM, PST | Virgin Media - TV | See recent Virgin Media - TV news »

Sheridan Smith is dating Greg Wood. The 'Cilla' star has reportedly started romancing the 'Hollyoaks' actor, leaving his wife Catherine - who he split from three months ago - ''devastated''. A source close to Greg's partner of ten years said: ''Catherine was devastated when she realised that Greg was dating Sheridan so soon after they split.

Her split from Greg was far from amicable, but they were together »

Alan Carr: 'Getting drunk on Chatty Man easier than doing research'

23 January 2015 6:32 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Alan Carr has insisted that he does serve his guests real alcohol on Chatty Man - because it saves him "doing research".

"They just open up - you get more out of them [when they've been drinking]," Carr told Digital Spy at the National Television Awards.

The comedian was named best Chat Show Host at the NTAs, beating Michael McIntyre, Graham Norton, Paul O'Grady and Jonathan Ross.

The victory was decided by viewers, though Carr insisted that he had not campaigned for votes online.

"I didn't wanna hammer it on Twitter and tell everyone [to vote] - because there's nothing worse, is there?" he said. "If people vote for you, they vote for you, which is always sweet."

Carr had previously apologised for his NTAs acceptance speech, branding it "f**king s**t".

Sheridan Smith: 'I was gutted to miss NTAs win'

22 January 2015 7:41 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Sheridan Smith has told Digital Spy that she was "gutted" to miss her win at the National Television Awards.

Speaking to DS back stage last night (January 21), the Cilla star recalled how she "burst into tears" upon hearing she'd won the trophy for Best Drama Performance, while stuck in traffic.

"I was in the back of a cab," said the emotional actress. "That's not the way you want to win it - I was gutted. But bless the NTAs - they let me go on and say a little thank you."

Smith beat out Sherlock's Benedict Cumberbatch, Happy Valley's Sarah Lancashire and Downton Abbey's Dame Maggie Smith to win the award.

However, ITV's Cilla lost out to Downton in the Drama category, as did Doctor Who and Sherlock.

Sheridan Smith missed her NTAs win: 'I was in traffic for three hours'

21 January 2015 5:32 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Sheridan Smith has said that she started crying in traffic after realising she missed her Nta win on Wednesday night (January 21).

The actress, who won Best Drama Performance for Cilla, was late to the ceremony due to being stuck in a cab and missed her name being read out as the winner.

Speaking to reporters including Digital Spy backstage, Smith said: "Do you know what, I couldn't believe I won when I was in the car.

"I'd been filming since 5 this morning so they would let me go early, and they let me go at four and so I got ready, got in the car, and something's happened, I think. I'm not lying.

"There's definitely something – honestly, something happened. Anyway, there's traffic everywhere. I'm not lying, I was in a cab for three hours. And then I got a phone call going, 'Where are you?' And then they said »
