Friends and colleagues remember Chris Collins

11 November 2014 2:55 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Colleagues including Elizabeth Karlsen, Adrian Wootton, Hugo Heppell and Amma Asante pay tribute to the late BFI Film Fund executive

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 »

Big Brother: Ash Harrison bursts into tears after housemate reunion

14 August 2014 9:36 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Big Brother's decision to bring back six ex-housemates for yesterday's task had a big impact on the finalists.

Danielle McMahon, Zoe Birkett, Winston Showan, Steven Goode, Biannca Lake and Mark Byron all returned yesterday (August 13) to give the final six some tips on how to deal with the outside world.

However, Ash Harrison found the reunion difficult and later cried in the Diary Room as he admitted that he's missed having Winston and Steven in the house.

"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."

Meanwhile, Mark's return had a big impact on Christopher Hall as Pav Paul told him: "You really like him don't you... I don't think you realise how much you talk about him."

"I must do," Christopher replied. "I'll get over it."

The finalists later won a party for passing the task, »

Big Brother Ash: 'Do I fancy Helen? No, she's a knob'

14 August 2014 7:18 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Big Brother housemate Ash Harrison has confirmed that he doesn't "fancy" his fellow contestant Helen Wood - describing her as a "knob".

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.

During the media training session, Ash was asked if he fancied Helen and joked: "No... she's a knob! She's my best mate in the house and she's alright to look at, but she's a knobhead."

Returning housemate Zoe Birkett pointed out that his comments could result in a negative headline - which this very article proves.

Elsewhere, Helen apologised to Zoe for her behaviour after she was asked if there was anyone that she planned to say sorry to upon leaving the house.

However, she added: "Everyone else I genuinely probably didn't like and don't deserve an apology... Everyone else can get stuffed."

Big Brother: Helen fumes after overhearing Ashleigh complaints

13 August 2014 9:05 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Big Brother housemates Ashleigh Coyle and Helen Wood are still at odds after yet more drama in the compound.

Earlier this week, Helen and Chris Wright moved into a secret room where they could listen to their fellow housemates, but Helen was unhappy with what she overheard yesterday (August 12).

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.

Meanwhile, Christopher admitted that he is annoyed by Helen's "power" and suggested that Ashleigh was the only person who didn't obey 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 »

Big Brother: Ex-housemates return to teach finalists about fame

13 August 2014 4:33 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

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. »

Big Brother: Ashleigh, Pav live the celebrity lifestyle for new task

12 August 2014 6:23 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Big Brother housemates Ashleigh Coyle and Pav Paul have become famous for today's task.

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.

Ashleigh and Pav were also told to make outrageous demands of Ash Harrison and Christopher Hall, who have become their entourage.

So far, this largely seems to have consisted of making Ashleigh cups of tea while she waits for a tweet from P Diddy.

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".

Ashleigh and Pav must pose in the location from the headline with the housemate that they think matches the description. »

Big Brother: Helen and Chris in shock eviction... to secret room

12 August 2014 2:39 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Big Brother housemates Helen Wood and Chris Wright were shockingly evicted last night - but they only got as far as a secret room.

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 »

11 August 2014 9:12 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Big Brother housemate Ashleigh Coyle was struggling with homesickness yesterday (August 10).

As the group come into the final week, both Christopher Hall and Chris Wright noted that the 18-year-old's homesickness has "stepped up a notch".

"There's nothing we can say anymore," Christopher mused, while Chris joked: "When I'm feeling s**tty, she's in a good mood, and when she's feeling s**tty, I'm in a good mood."

Ashleigh later opened up to Chris about her excitement about going home, saying: "I can't wait to get back to normality... To have my normal way of thinking again."

Chris agreed that none of his friends ever talk about themselves, as Ashleigh joked: "One more week of listening to the same s**t about themselves!"

However, Ashleigh's homesickness did not go unnoticed by the other housemates, as Helen Wood described her as "very boring" for an 18-year-old and added: "She's a very grumpy girl. »

Big Brother's Ashleigh: 'I'm so grateful for this experience'

11 August 2014 7:26 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Big Brother's Ashleigh Coyle has expressed her gratitude for being put in the house.

With the series ending on Friday (August 15), Ashleigh became teary and told Christopher Hall that he and Chris Wright have been a "massive, massive part" of her experience.

"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."

Ashleigh then discussed Helen Wood, Ash Harrison and Pav Paul, saying that despite the divide, she would be delighted for them if one of the trio is crowned the winner.

"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. »

Big Brother: Verdict handed down in Helen and Ashleigh trial

11 August 2014 4:33 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Big Brother's Helen Wood has been found guilty of causing the divide between the housemates.

The verdict was delivered by Judge Judi James yesterday (August 10), after both Helen and Ashleigh Coyle gave their arguments to the court.

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."

Ashleigh's lawyer Christopher Hall countered: "Ashleigh has strove to make any amends with any housemates that she has had difficulty with.

"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. »

10 August 2014 1:33 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

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."

Christopher Hall also spoke to Big Brother about the divide, saying that there "was hostility" yesterday, but »
