I first met Chris at the Dinard FIlm Festival. I’d just watched Sarah Gavron’s beautiful rendition of Brick Lane, which Chris had produced. After the screening he, Sarah and I sat at small table outdoors in the brilliant sunshine talking about films, the pressures of being an independent producer, our daughters and how much I loved Brick Lane. I hope he knew that I was speaking from the heart. I was struck then by his quiet intelligence, his gracious and kind nature and his absolute devotion to and passion for independent film making. I could see that Sarah had enjoyed tremendous commitment from him as a producer on her first film. I was lucky enough, with my partner Stephen Woolley, to work with him consistently over the next eight years. He was unfailingly »

"I'm over the moon for her. I'm really, really glad that we sorted it out a few nights ago.

Christopher said of Mark: "He is one of a kind."
Speaking about their relationship, he revealed: "It is what it is. I'd rather have him as a mate and have him in my life, if we continue to fight all the time. We bring out the worst in each other."
Summing up his experience on the show, he said: "It's crazy. You meet a »

Speaking to Emma Willis after leaving the compound, Pav said: "I'm so surprised. I'm so overwhelmed with the amount of people that are here. I came out, and I've got so many family and friends here, I'm just so shocked.
"My family and my friends are everything to me. My letter from my aunt was one of the biggest changing points in my experience. It doesn't matter if I come sixth or first, I'm going to succeed with that support group."
He continued to say: "I needed to create friendships and real relationships in the house.
"I regret what I said in my Vt."

Big Brother's decision to bring back six ex-housemates for yesterday's task had a big impact on the finalists.
"I can't wait to see them again," he said. "It's not like I'm sad, it's just overwhelming... I just wanted to keep hugging them."
"I must do," Christopher replied. "I'll get over it."
The finalists later won a party for passing the task, »
The model made his comments during yesterday's task, which saw ex-housemates returning to give the finalists some advice about returning to the outside world.
Returning housemate Zoe Birkett pointed out that his comments could result in a negative headline - which this very article proves.
However, she added: "Everyone else I genuinely probably didn't like and don't deserve an apology... Everyone else can get stuffed."
Big Brother comes to an end tomorrow - tomorrow! - after over 70 days of bitching, Armageddon, people opening things we don't want to know about, divides and drunken kissing.

During a conversation with Christopher Hall, Ashleigh described Helen as "f**king nasty" - mentioning the moment earlier this series when Helen called Jale Karaturp a slug - and added that she has no respect for her.
Chris, who admitted that he didn't like listening to the housemates' conversations and suggested that Helen would go off like a firework, later told Helen that he was choosing not to pay attention to the conversations. However, Helen admitted that she »
Six ex-housemates are returning to the Big Brother house today (August 13) - to help the finalists prepare for their return to the outside world.
Ahead of the final on Friday (August 15), remaining housemates Ash Harrison, Ashleigh Coyle, Chris Wright, Christopher Hall, Helen Wood and Pav Paul must try to learn important skills to win a party for themselves and their ex-housemates.
First up, Danielle McMahon and Zoe Birkett will be back to give the group some media training. The duo will give each housemate individual teaching, which they must put to good use when Big Brother hosts a press conference featuring questions from the public.
Biannca Lake and Mark Byron, meanwhile, will teach the finalists how to exit the house in style and have a "memorable winning attitude". After their tutorial, the housemates must each deliver a signature exit pose, react to boos, and show off their new good winning attitude. »
The duo were told earlier that they have been transformed into celebrities and will be treated like stars, beginning with new clothes for them both.
However, the duo will also face the darker side of celebrity as they will come up against the paparazzi.
Throughout the day, Big Brother will read headlines to the house, such as "X was spotted having a cat fight in the garden with the housemate they have the least in common with".
The group was aghast when they were gathered on the sofa yesterday (August 11), and even more surprised when Emma Willis began speaking to them over the tannoy.
She announced that Helen was the 13th housemate to be evicted, leaving the Mancunian visibly upset.
Despite the fact that Helen was told to leave the house through the Diary Room, the housemates did not seem to realise that the eviction was fake and were all surprised by the dramatic turn of events - with Ashleigh Coyle offering to sort out Helen's suitcase for her as Christopher Hall repeated: "This can't be right."
However, Helen was soon happily settling into a secret room - only complaining that she had been provided with ginger beer - and was able »
"I wouldn't ask for it any other way," she said. "[I would never have been] as grateful to this experience and the people who put me in this house [without] the fact that I made you as friends."
"I still feel if there are three people who do misunderstand me, it's personally because I don't want anything bad to happen to them three," she explained.
"Because I know I don't have a chance in hell of winning the show, I want it to be you or Chris. »
Helen's lawyer Pav Paul told Ashleigh: "You started your journey as a very loveable, bubbly character and was perceived as the young innocent lady of the house. However, this doesn't seem to be the case.
"Your tendency to pounce in arguments only when you're backed up by your friends shows you're malicious, which consequently leaves a divide in the house every time."
"She has displayed determination to overcome problems and has put effort into building relationships with all housemates, in spite of the many nasty comments which have been directed at her. »
The divide between housemates in the Big Brother house continues to grow.
In tonight's show (August 10), housemates discussed the impact of Winston Showan and Mark Byron leaving the house, with Ash Harrison suggesting that if "two others could have gone it [would] not be as bad", before adding: "No offence, Pav."
Ashleigh Coyle told Big Brother that she was "dead excited" to be in the final, and analysed the different groups in the house. She suggested that Pav has joined Ash and Helen's group and described the situation as being like "watching the new kid desperately trying to get in with the popular kids".
Ashleigh went on to say: "[Pav is] actually a really nice guy and easy to talk to… It cringes me out when I see him desperately want to be their friend."
