Here is what BAFTA host Graham Norton thinks about the year in TV

6 hours ago

It's only the BAFTA TV Awards on Sunday, so what better way to prepare than by looking over the year in television? And who better to do that with than with BAFTA host Graham Norton himself?

"By the time you get to the Oscars, there's been so many award shows you know what's winning," Graham said. "In this, it really is up for grabs. You really don't know until the night and then it becomes obvious – the minute something wins you go, 'Well, of course that won, of course it did'. But until then, you don't know."

But who does he think will be picking up some of those lovely little trophies? Which show does he think should have been nominated? And is he a fan of Mrs Brown's Boys? Read on for all that and more...

Although less than impressed with their caravan accommodation, they soon find their own ways to keep warm.

Are Jodie Kidd, Philip Glenister and Guy Martin the new hosts of Top Gear?

10 hours ago

If rumours are to be believed, Jodie Kidd, Philip Glenister and Guy Martin could be the next presenters of Top Gear.

According to the Sunday Express, the show's co-creator Andy Wilman was overheard describing the new line-up while having lunch with Jamiroquai singer Jay Kay.

All three stars have relevant experience: former model Kidd presents Channel 5's Classic Cars Show, Life on Mars actor Glenister hosts For the Love of Cars on Channel 4 and Martin is a TV presenter and former motorcycle racing champion.

It could all be pure speculation, but what if this was the new trio? Let us know your thoughts in the poll:

19 hours ago

Deborah Meaden will swap Dragons' Den for crime-solving when she appears on BBC Three's new show Murder in Successville.

The show sees a host of celebrity sidekicks teaming up with Di Sleet (Tom Davis) to solve various crimes in the fictional town of Successville.

The famous faces have no idea what they're getting themselves into before filming begins, but with Successville populated by celebrities, will they be able to arrest the right suspect?

Meaden will be challenged to solve an Agatha Christie-style murder mystery, but will she be able to decide whether Lady Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, retired Scout master Boris Johnson, invalid aunt Nicki Minaj or the suspicious butler Jay Z was responsible?

"I had the best time and actually got real and uncontrollable giggles more than once," Meaden said. "The cast were unbelievably good especially as they were improvising around my reactions. I was so immersed at times I »

Joey Essex: "I don't think people take politics seriously anyway, really"

21 hours ago

If you had to think of one TV star to sit down with the country's politicians ahead of this week's General Election, then it probably wouldn't be Joey Essex.

The former Towie star has previously admitted to having a seriously limited knowledge of what goes on in Westminster, and he's never before voted at an election. So what did he learn when he sat down with Ed Miliband, Nick Clegg and Nigel Farage recently?

We met up with Joey last week to talk about his first impressions of the candidates, what he thinks politicians can do to improve their reputation, and whether he sees any future for himself in politics...

What was the most surprising thing you learned about the world of politics while filming the show?

"The most surprising thing for me was being around people who are almost like royalty. David Cameron lives behind big gates; do you know what I'm saying? »
