Watch Jedward prepare for a dunking on ITV's Keep It In The Family

10 September 2015 8:23 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Brotherly love is tested to the limit on this week's episode of Keep It In The Family, as Jedward face off against each other in an attempt to avoid a dunking.

The twins do their best to persuade a young contestant to spare them from a short fall into a tank of water in a new clip from the ITV show.

One of the singers tries to sell a trip to a safari park, while the other bigs up a spin on the London Eye.

This week's show also sees host Bradley Walsh look on as Jason Gardiner and Lisa Riley take a plunge.

Keep It In The Family continues on Saturday at 7pm on ITV.

Elsewhere, Jedward gave some surprisingly blunt - and unsurprisingly daft - answers in a Digital Spy '60 Seconds' interview recently.

6 times Jessica Gunning proved she might be Britain's most underrated actress

9 September 2015 5:45 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

You might not know her name, but Jessica Gunning has been part of some of the best, most ground-breaking British film and TV of the last decade. Born in Holmfirth, West Yorkshire ("... where Last of the Summer Wine was filmed," she says. "Claim to fame!"), Gunning later joined the National Theatre where she shared the stage with Hayley Atwell.

Unforgettable moments in Doctor Who (destroyed by CGI munchkins), Fortitude (by far some of the icy drama's grisliest scenes) and BBC Three comedy Top Coppers have confirmed her place as an exciting talent.

1. Doctor Who (2008)

Gunning brought charm to the part of poor Stacey Campbell, who met a darkly comic fate - she melted and was replaced by a pack of adorable Adipose, marshmallow-like blobs that posed an unlikely threat to Earth.

"You do really feel when you're doing Doctor Who that you're part of something that's pretty special," says Gunning. »

These are the 7 TV shows you cannot miss this week

3 August 2015 4:15 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Digital Spy recommends the very best in television - these are the seven most exciting shows airing this week, from the return of Bake Off to a surprising upturn for True Detective.

Monday - True Detective, Sky Atlantic at 9pm

True Detective has come in for plenty of flak in its second season, but is the whole thing just one massive slow burn? That's what overnight reviews from the Us seem to be suggesting.

After steadily improving in recent weeks, the moody HBO drama's latest outing 'Black Maps and Motel Rooms' seems to have won over critics - maybe it's time to tune back in?

Tuesday - New Tricks, BBC One at 9pm

It's the end of an era as BBC One's long-running Golden Oldie crime drama is finally being pensioned off - though not before one last 10-part series.

Series 12 begins with the first of a two-parter in »

Paddy McGuinness sets the Benchmark: What he told us about his new show

31 May 2015 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Hours of dedicated Take Me Out viewing means we love Paddy McGuinness, so when we found out that he had a new Channel 4 gameshow, we had to pop to Manchester to watch him filming.

Benchmark sees a contestant trying to guess the numerical answer to a question - with a group of other contestants setting the benchmark by guessing as well. But with questions about biscuits and members of the public involved - plus a seriously tense final round - it's a fun teatime watch. Here's what Paddy told us about it all...

"I'd probably say 70% of the stuff that I get offered, I turn down. I've only ever done stuff with regards to live or TV that I've thought, 'There's something there, there's something I can do with it'."

"Benchmark is very much like Take Me Out where you're chatting to people up and down. It's always great »

Bradley Walsh on why he swapped Law & Order: UK for BBC One's Sun Trap

18 May 2015 4:01 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Bradley Walsh has revealed why he traded ITV's Law & Order: UK for new BBC One series Sun Trap.

Walsh appears opposite Kayvan Novak in the comedy about two ex-journalists and their antics in Spain.

The actor and TV host told press including Digital Spy that it had become "tricky" to fit Law & Order: UK into his increasingly busy schedule.

"You have to set aside so much time for drama," he explained. "Law & Order was a 6-month shoot, so everything [else] has to be crammed into the rest of the year."

Walsh also fronts ITV's quiz The Chase and game show Keep It in the Family.

"This particular shoot for Sun Trap is round about 8 weeks maximum - 2 months - so that's Ok, that's manageable," he explained. "If I do The Chase or Keep It in the Family or whatever I'm doing - then all of a sudden I can go be a character for 2 months, »

Frank Lampard and Bradley Walsh take on the Play To The Whistle diving challenge

18 May 2015 1:21 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

It's all fun and games on Play To The Whistle as Frank Lampard and Bradley Walsh have taken on the diving challenge.

The team captains attempted to leap the furthest on a bouncy penalty box for this weekend's edition of the ITV sporting game show.

Host Holly Willoughby, Pat Cash, Romesh Ranganathan, Natalie Anderson, Jimmy Bullard and Seann Walsh also took on the challenge.

Frank Lampard and Christine Bleakley's relationship survived a game of Mr & Mrs on Play To The Whistle recently.

Fabio Cannavaro dropped the ball, however, mistaking Lampard for Steven Gerrard in an embarrassing Facebook post.

Play to the Whistle will air at 9.15pm on Saturday on ITV. »

Big Brother's Simon Gross: 'I won't stop because someone writes on Twitter that I'm a bully'

11 May 2015 5:35 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Simon Gross is feeling very excited about his upcoming stint on Big Brother. "It's just more and better than I imagined, but I haven't even done it yet," he said. "Just the build up and everything is more than I ever imagined. It's overpowering but in a good way." And that's just while he's stuck in a hotel room, being chaperoned so he doesn't spy his fellow housemates.

But even though the show hasn't started yet, Simon's already been causing controversy thanks to the #abusedbysimongross hashtag on Twitter, which sees actors hitting out at his behaviour towards them. We sat down with him for an exclusive chat to discuss that, his previous bankruptcy, why he thinks young people have lost their manners and why he doesn't care if you think he's a wannabe after his time on Hell's Kitchen...

1. Simon has done lots of panto, so he's probably prepared for Big Brother. »

What to Watch: Tonight's TV Picks - The Enfield Haunting, The C Word

3 May 2015 4:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

The C Word: BBC One, 8.30pm

Starring Sheridan Smith, this drama is based on the extraordinary true story of the late Lisa Lynch, whose life is changed when she is diagnosed with breast cancer.

Lisa is adamant in not letting her cancer define her and takes to a blog to share her honest experience of dealing with the trials and tribulations of the illness, and is completely unaware of the profound effects that her personal account will have on readers.

The Enfield Haunting: Sky Living, 9pm

After weeks of ominous hype, the enigmatic Enfield Haunting is finally haunting our TV screens. It's based on the most documented account of poltergeist activity in British history in 1977, where a north London house has apparently been hit by a series of inexplicable incidents, from incessant knocking to furniture with a life of its own.

A show so terrifying that star Timothy Spall initially turned the role down, »

Frank Lampard reveals naughty toenail habit on Play to the Whistle

30 April 2015 9:11 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Frank Lampard and Christine Bleakley's relationship has apparently survived a game of Mr & Mrs.

The couple will appear alongside each other on this weekend's edition of sporting game show Play to the Whistle on ITV.

On the topic of the footballer's worst habit, Bleakley correctly guessed her partner's answer that he apparently leaves his toenail clippings around the house. Naughty Frank.

Host Holly Willoughby will be joined by regular captains Lampard and Bradley Walsh, alongside guests Bleakley, Dermot O'Leary, Arsenal player Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and comedian Romesh Ranganathan on Saturday (May 2).

Seann Walsh will also be on hand as the show's comedy umpire to determine who wins the battle this week.

Last year, Bleakley dismissed rumours that she will be relocating to New York following her partner's move to the city's local team. She currently presents ITV travel series Wild Ireland.

Play to the Whistle will air at 9.15pm on Saturday on ITV. »

Holly Willoughby: 'Piers Morgan was speechless on my show... for once'

24 April 2015 4:01 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Who doesn't love Holly Willoughby? The TV presenter can do pretty much anything and everything on the box - including her new sports panel show Play To The Whistle. We got Holly on the phone to talk about Jimmy Bullard in drag, the fitness of Piers Morgan, whether Frank Lampard's a diva, what she thinks of Katie Hopkins and why she's never too rude on TV...

I think people hear of a sports panel show and think, 'Is that going to be like A League of Their Own?' But Play To The Whistle is completely different, isn't it?

"I think so. I mean, it's a sports panel show so I understand there is a similarity in that aspect but I think it's its own show. We have different clips from online, sport from around the world. I think the panel is very unique because we've got Frank Lampard, »

Sport and comedy: the TV marriage that will sadly never end

10 April 2015 4:07 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

ITV’s new panel show Play to the Whistle is the latest banter-chasing blend of sport and comedy, following A League of Their Own, Big Break and countless others. But while everyone on screen enjoys themselves, for audiences it’s televisual carbon monoxide

Comedy and sport do not mix. That’s why the average episode of A Question of Sport makes you feel like you’re suffering a bout of carbon monoxide poisoning. It’s why Freddie Flintoff makes Jacamo adverts and not stand-up specials. It’s why, whenever Jimmy Greaves would turn to camera and say “It’s a funny old game”, he’d do it in such a genuinely mournful way that foreigners would be forgiven for thinking he was actually saying “The universe is cold and random” or “All is naught but pain and dust”.

And yet people won’t stop trying to shove them both together. »

Two Tribes: What happened when we played Richard Osman's game show?

16 February 2015 1:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Here at Digital Spy, we love a game show. And we love Richard Osman. So when we got a call asking if we'd like to take part in a journalists' edition of Richard Osman's game show Two Tribes, how could we resist?

If you missed the first series of Two Tribes, here's how it works: the contestants fill out a questionnaire beforehand, and then in each round they're split into two tribes depending on whether they answered "yes" or "no" to a particular question. Then the tribes battle it out to stay in the competition.

That all sounds simple enough, but then we got sent the questionnaire, about a week before we went on set. And let us tell you, there is nothing simple about this questionnaire (which is pretty long - we were advised that it might take half an hour to complete, so they aren't messing around »

Keep It in the Family has been renewed for a second series on ITV.

The game show - hosted by Bradley Walsh - sees two families battling it out in a series of different rounds in an attempt to win prizes.

The series also features celebrities - such as stars of The X Factor or Coronation Street - who face the dreaded "drop" through a trapdoor if the prizes they have on offer aren't to the families' liking.

ITV has also promised that the new episodes will see the return of The Nanas, the popular grandmothers with a combined age of 486 who were seen last series describing a series of phrases in a rather unique manner.
