Bradley Walsh might be Britain's greatest gameshow host

25 November 2014 4:59 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Keep It in the Family is up against Strictly, but with Walsh’s amiable schtick, this garish quiz provides a masterclass in hosting

ITV’s Sunday night gameshow Keep It in the Family shouldn’t work. It’s a garish mishmash of other, better programmes. There’s a bit of 3-2-1. There’s some Kids Say the Funniest Things. There’s probably enough Generation Game to form the basis of a relatively promising lawsuit. This, along with the fact that ITV broadcasts it when the rest of the world is off watching Strictly on the other side, all points to the assumption that the whole thing is an unwatchable mess.

And, with a different host, it might be. If Vernon Kay or Stephen Mulhern had been put in charge of Keep It in the Family, the whole thing would curl up and die of its own awkwardness within about 15 seconds. »

The X Factor 2014: week seven live blog as it happened

23 November 2014 12:58 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

It was Elton John vs Whitney Houston week, and two acts went home. Stuart Heritage liveblogged it just for you.

8.58pm GMT

And that’s it. Somehow – although god knows how – X Factor will have to stumble on without Stevi. I don’t know how any of us will cope.

Anyway, thanks for hanging out with me this weekend. I think it’s clear that I needed all the help I could get. If you fancy following me on Twitter, I’m @StuHeritage. Ok! We made it! The end’s in sight! We can do this! Only The Young!

8.57pm GMT

And yet, in Stevi’s final moments, all I can notice is that he hasn’t done his shirt up properly. What a legacy.

8.56pm GMT

But also, Stevi’s gone. This liveblog has absolutely no power whatsoever. I don’t know about you, but I’m quite relieved. »

Bradley Walsh: 'Law & Order: UK hasn't been decommissioned'

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

Bradley Walsh has insisted that viewers haven't seen the last of Law & Order: UK.

ITV announced earlier this year that it would be "resting" the crime drama, which starred Walsh as DS Ronnie Brooks.

"It's not the end of Law & Order - it hasn't been decommissioned," Walsh told Digital Spy. "I just wanted a rest.

"It's a seven-month shoot and that just doesn't leave me any time to do anything else."

However, Walsh confirmed that he is keen to continue with his acting work, in addition to hosting ITV's The Chase and Keep It in the Family.

"I'm making a new show for the BBC - that's an eight-week shoot, a comedy drama with Kayvan Novak," he said. "So yeah, I'll always carry on doing the acting."

Keep It in the Family starts Sunday, October 26 at 7pm on ITV.

Bradley Walsh not planning to quit The Chase: "Long may it reign"

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

Bradley Walsh has insisted that he has no plans to quit The Chase.

Earlier this year, Paul Sinha - one of the show's professional quizzers - claimed that the daytime hit wouldn't survive without its current host.

Walsh - who will soon host new ITV game show Keep It in the Family - told Digital Spy that his other commitments will not impact on The Chase.

"I really love doing The Chase - long may it reign," he said.

"Keep It in the Family is peak time viewing at the weekend, The Chase is a daytime show - a five o'clock gig - so they're two separate things."

Keep It in the Family features three generations of rival families going head-to-head for prizes - but the twist is that the kids are the ones in charge, deciding which family member plays each game and which prizes they compete for.

Nick Knowles on... Strictly, Diy Sos and his love for Bradley Walsh

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

Nick Knowles is definitely a fixture of the television schedules, and he's back for more with another series of his Saturday night show Break The Safe - which returns tomorrow. To mark its launch, we got on the phone with Nick for a natter about the many things he's got going on - from the future of Diy Sos to whether he really was approached about Strictly...

"I think people overlook the Saturday night stuff on BBC One because it's wrapped around the lottery. But you can tell a good show from a bad show, because a bad one will get about 2m, and a good one will do several million more than that. We know lots of people watched Break The Safe last time and enjoyed it, so I'm very pleased to get a second go at it. I think sometimes also people think these things are made up »
