Friends and colleagues remember Chris Collins

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

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."

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

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

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

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

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.
