Big Brother Christopher, Ashleigh in argument: 'She can jog right on'

6 hours ago

Big Brother housemates Christopher Hall and Ashleigh Coyle fell out yesterday (July 30).

The duo were discussing this week's website shopping task when Christopher wondered: "What on earth else can they do to us?"

However, his comment rubbed Ashleigh up the wrong way as she suggested plenty could still happen to her, as she had not been "degraded" as much as some of the other housemates.

When Christopher asked what was wrong with her, Ashleigh replied that she was "f**king tired" and warned that she would "f**king hit the roof" if Christopher continued to make similar comments.

Christopher eventually told Ashleigh to stop being "ridiculous" and chose to leave, telling her to stop being "so immature".

Discussing the argument, Chris Wright suggested that Ashleigh needed to calm down, while Mark Byron admitted that he wanted to intervene but had been told to stop doing that by Christopher.

The 68-year-old performer was perhaps best known for playing swinger Donald Stewart in ITV's Benidorm.

"He was a much loved actor, not only by the cast and crew on Benidorm but by the millions of fans out there.

"He appeared as Donald Stewart in Benidorm from the first episode and helped play a huge part in its success. He will be greatly missed."

Towie finale recap: "She sent him nudie snaps and I've seen them"

8 hours ago

It was the Towie finale last night (July 30), and there were surprisingly fewer fireworks and more smooching than we could have ever predicted. Lydia and Arg got it on, Elliott and Chloe are still very much on it, and even Dan and Bobby got swept up with it for an unexpected passionate snog.

For those who missed it, pull up a pew and be prepared for a roller-coaster ride (literally) with our episode recap below:

Towie kicks off with a shirtless shot of James Lock lifting two very heavy tyres.

Why not, eh?

Arg is channelling Alan from The Hangover crossed with Mary Poppins - his words - as he bonds with Billie's baby Nelly. He contemplates names for his own children, and toys with Tum Tum as he's certain he'll spawn "a chubster". He also reveals that he's going to try and win Lydia back and asks Nelly for her advice, »

Peter Capaldi: 'I thought I was too old for Doctor Who'

11 hours ago

Peter Capaldi has admitted that he initially thought he was too old for Doctor Who.

The 56-year-old actor told Entertainment Weekly that he expected 31-year-old Matt Smith to be replaced on the BBC series by another actor of a similar age.

"I wouldn't have thought it would be me - because of my age," he confessed. "I would have thought they were automatically heading younger."

However, he added: "I'm technically too young for the part, because he's over 2,000 years old."

Back in February, Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat insisted that casting an older actor as the new Doctor makes "no difference" to the show.

"It's all the difference in the world - because suddenly he's a man in his 50s with grey hair - and [yet] it's no difference at all," he said.

"Never mind that, John Hurt's 73, and how great was he? And kids love the John Hurt Doctor. »

Top Gear Stig star Ben Collins calls driverless cars "terrifying"

12 hours ago

Top Gear's former Stig Ben Collins has called the concept of driverless cars "terrifying".

Google recently announced details of its own plans for driverless cars, while major automotive manufacturers like Mercedes and BMW continue to pursue the technology.

"Robots are fantastic as dishwashers, but they don't make very good drivers," Collins said on ITV's Good Morning Britain.

"The best computer onboard the car is a human, so it's sad that they are trying to put us out of a job."

On how he would tackle the problem of dangerous drivers, Collins added: "A bit more effort into driver training, maybe improve the driving test.

"The sad thing is now we are sort of drip feeding the technology in, things like flashing wing mirrors that try and tell you when to look. You stop bothering to look for yourself."

The law currently dictates that driverless cars are illegal on British roads, »

The Guardians of the Galaxy star may have delivered an impressive impersonation of the cast - even if he didn't pronounce the show's name correctly.

Post by BuzzFeed Brews.

In a BuzzFeed Brews interview on CBS's This Morning, Pratt was asked if he could do any impersonations for the crowd, and he chose to enlighten them about his recent trip to London.

He said: "There's this show in London called Towie - The Only Way Is Essex - it's not going to really mean anything to you guys, because you don't know the Essex people. It's kind of like the Jersey Shore of England, I think."

As well as impersonating characters from UK reality shows, Pratt has also demonstrated his French braiding skills, during his press trip for Guardians of the Galaxy. The star interrupted an »

13 hours ago

The Singer Takes It All begins tomorrow - but this ain't your standard talent show. Nope, it's all a bit sillier than that - hopeful contestants will take to a moving walkway to give it their all, but viewers at home can decide on an app whether they deserve to move forward to the Gold Zone (and a potential cash prize) or if they should move backwards and right off the stage. This is going to be good.

But we wanted to know a little bit more, so who better to ask than host Alan Carr himself? Read on for your guide to The Singer Takes It All...

1. This isn't like all those other singing shows - don't expect any sob stories for one thing.

Big Brother: Helen and Ash play underneath the bed covers

23 hours ago

Big Brother's Helen Wood admitted that she was unsure if Ash Harrison liked her, before the two were caught playing underneath their bed covers.

Helen had insisted to Zoe Birkett that Ash wasn't interested in her romantically, but Zoe said that Ash told her he didn't know how Helen felt.

Helen later chatted to Ashleigh about Ash and suggested that she may have "pissed him off" as Ash had "gone a bit more distant with me... even after we kiss, things have changed".

When Ashleigh told Helen that Ash had stronger feelings than her, Helen said that she and Ash were "chalk and cheese... I'd rather punch myself in my nose than explain how I feel in this house".

However, Helen did admit to liking Ash, but worried that Ash would simply walk away and say "see you later" when the series ends.
