Big Brother unleashes a shock nominations twist, but only tells Jack

8 hours ago

Big Brother has lined up a shocking nominations twist - and only Jack McDermott knows.

Big Brother: Timebomb - Who's having a good day and who's having a bad day?

Calling him to the Diary Room, Big Brother explains to Jack that the housemates nominated this week are actually safe from eviction.

That means Aaron Frew, Cristian Mjc, Eileen Daly, Jade Lynch, Joel Williams and Nick Henderson definitely won't be leaving on Friday (May 29).

Instead, the housemates not originally nominated - Chloe Wilburn, Danny Wisker, Harriet Jackson, Kieran McLeod, Sarah Greenwood, Amy and Sally Broadbent, and Jack himself - will face the public vote.

Jack is offered the opportunity to use one of his immunity passes to save himself or another housemate. He decides to grant himself immunity for this week's eviction.

Big Brother then warns Jack not to reveal the twist to any of the other housemates - or »

Stephen Mulhern: 'Amanda Holden argument reports on Britain's Got Talent are nonsense'

9 hours ago

Stephen Mulhern has dismissed reports that he and Amanda Holden had to be separated by Simon Cowell earlier this week.

On Monday's (May 25) edition of Britain's Got More Talent, Holden soaked him with four glasses of water after he showed a picture of what she might look like in 20 years' time.

Holden stuck her fingers up at Mulhern and also smacked his behind in the process.

The tabloids have since reported that the pair argued once they were off-air, with Holden taking offence to his behaviour.

Talking about the show on This Morning, Mulhern said: "Before we start by the way, the whole idea of this is to give This Morning all the gossip, and you may have seen on a front page of a paper this morning a headline about Amanda Holden and myself... being 'split up in an argument by Simon Cowell'.

The Twelfth Doctor will make his first ever Comic-Con appearance this summer.

Peter Capaldi is heading to San Diego Comic-Con 2015 on Thursday, July 9 with his Doctor Who co-star Jenna Coleman, who's making her second appearance at the annual event.

Capaldi said: "Tales of San Diego Comic-Con are told in awe on every set around the known fantasy/sci-fi production world.

It's become a fabled kingdom. One I am thrilled to find myself heading for. And to appear in the legendary Hall H is a further twist to the cosplay and comic madness I may never recover from."

Cuckoo: How a Rob Schneider pilot became BBC Three's biggest show

10 hours ago

In 2012, it became BBC Three's biggest ever sitcom, and in 2015, a third series was announced - but the path to success for Cuckoo has been far from smooth.

After a first series delivered record-breaking ratings, the show lost its star (more on that later) - but it emerged rejuvenated two years on, its second run charming audiences all over again.

Cuckoo - the story of an eccentric bohemian who infiltrates a straight-laced, middle-class family - was originally devised by writing partnership Robin French and Kieron Quirke as a vehicle for Us comedian Rob Schneider, who was contemplating a move to the UK.

When the project finally materialised, Schneider was no longer attached - with another American actor and comic, Andy Samberg, cast in the title role, alongside a cast which included Greg Davies as the uptight Ken and Helen Baxendale as his wife Lorna.

BBC Three was on a hot streak at the time, »

Louis Walsh has one problem with The X Factor: 'There's too much singing on it'

10 hours ago

Louis Walsh has revealed one of his biggest X Factor bugbears: there's too much singing in it.

The judge told BBC Radio 1 that the ITV show needs a big shake-up to keep it interesting, perhaps with less of the singing aspect.

"Singing shows are not what they used to be - they have too much singing in them," he said.

When asked who he thought could replace him on the panel if he leaves, Walsh said that Robbie Williams would be his first choice, followed by Jon Bon Jovi.

Giving advice to rumoured judge Nick Grimshaw, he said: "Nick, just be yourself. Don't use any of my catchphrases. And do everything [Simon] Cowell tells you.

"And hope you don't get the groups because if you do you'll be in trouble."

Walsh has served on the panel for 11 years, although he has been heavily rumoured to be leaving ahead of the new series. »

It doesn't sound like Cheryl has any plans to make up with Louis Walsh

11 hours ago

It doesn't sound like Louis Walsh will be on Cheryl Fernandez-Versini's Christmas card list again this year after the popstar hit out at the music manager online.

Despite Walsh's claims that they "haven't really fallen out", the 'I Don't Care' singer criticised her fellow X Factor star for 'back-pedalling out of sight'.

The pair clashed last week after Walsh described her as "lazy" and "irrelevant", causing Cheryl to question whether he has an obsession with her.

Walsh recently said: "I got a text from Cheryl, but we haven't really fallen out - she was just saying funny things. She knows I'm writing a book, so it's all fun and games, there's no nastiness."

However, she posted a screenshot of his quotes on Instagram, alongside the caption: "&back pedal 1&2&3&4 until out of sight. Ps) I would not have found the text messages I sent to be 'funny' but ok!! Toodles. »

12 hours ago

We've had our second semi-final on Britain's Got Talent now, and some people who know just what it's like to hit the live shows are last year's winners Collabro. So each day, we'll be bringing you their verdict on the previous night's show, and today it's the turn of Matt Pagan.

"It was a great semi-final actually, really great," Matt told us this morning. "Me and the boys always sit and watch it in our separate homes and we all comment on it on our WhatsApp group and we thought it was a fantastic semi-final."

And in fact, the boys are still such big Britain's Got Talent fans that they thought they'd swing by to perform on Friday's show - why not, eh? Matt revealed this morning that he's "so excited" about going back to the studios.

So without further ado, let's see what Matt thought of each of the acts last night. »

13 hours ago

Mario Falcone has been temporarily suspended from The Only Way Is Essex.

ITV confirmed that the 27-year-old star has been banned from filming over claims that he has promoted slimming pills on social media.

A channel spokesperson told Digital Spy: "Mario is currently suspended from filming and as such will not be appearing in the Marbella episodes."

Falcone was previously banned from the ITVBe series following the release of a video purporting to show the reality TV star taking drugs on a night out.

It was also confirmed today that Towie co-star Ricky Rayment will be "taking a break" from filming and subsequently won't be joining cast members on their annual trip to Marbella.

Big Brother Day 14: Who had a good day, and who had a bad day?

13 hours ago

Is it just us or was last night's episode of Big Brother like classic Bb? It had everything: the twins' amazing discussion of food in the Diary Room ("Amy Pizza Broadbent"), Eileen crying about her dog not judging her, the brilliance of seeing everyone picking Jade during the nominations reveal, an argument about hairs in the bath, a game of hide and seek which ended with two hiders overhearing a conversation.

So we're very much enjoying the series, but who came out of last night's episode well and who didn't? It's time for our daily verdict...

Good Day

Nick Henderson

Nick had a bit of a wobble earlier this week when it looked like he was ditching Jade as soon as she became unpopular in the house - not cool, Nick - but he's managed to turn things around a bit lately.

Admittedly, no-one had a particularly good day yesterday, »

Bobby Davro accuses Britain's Got Talent judges of being "unfair" to Andrew Fleming

17 hours ago

Bobby Davro has defended fellow impressionist and friend Andrew Fleming after he was knocked out of Britain's Got Talent.

Speaking to Phil Williams on BBC Radio 5 Live yesterday (May 26), Davro accused judges Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams of being "a little unfair".

"Andy's done the last four years with me," he explained. "He's such a talented boy... they [on Britain's Got Talent] only got him to do the older ones and I believe they sold him short.

"I know Andy and he's such a good mimic and he does all the contemporary ones. But they sort of put you in that pigeon hole - 'come on, let's put him there, then let's take the mickey out of him' - and I thought that's a little unfair if I'm honest."

The third live semi-final of Britain's Got Talent starts tonight on ITV at 7.30pm.

Jason Manford to front new Dave show The Money Pit as contestants risk their own money

26 May 2015 4:01 PM, PDT

Jason Manford is heading to Dave with new crowdfunding series The Money Pit.

He will serve as ringmaster as members of the public risk their own money to invest in the ideas of hopeful entrepreneurs.

Contestants will be able to invest anything from £100 to £20,000 in return for a stake in the entrepreneur's new company, in a similar format to the BBC's long-running series Dragon's Den.

The show promises to be a tense watch as investors are free to withdraw their investment and jump ship to another company right until the end of the episode.

Manford said: "I'm inviting all those people with some spare cash that they're thinking of hiding under the mattress, or sticking on the 3.15pm at Haydock Park to join me in The Money Pit instead.

"It's their chance to invest in real-life entrepreneurs who could make them serious money. Who knows, if they back the right »
