An unfinished version of Doctor Who's series 8 premiere has leaked online over a month ahead of its television transmission, according to the BBC.

19 hours ago

How will the Big Brother housemates cope in a post-apocalyptic world?

Well, we're about to find out, as housemates will wake up to discover the garden has been transformed into a post-apocalyptic wasteland as part of a Planet of the Apes task.

After changing into outfits provided by Big Brother, housemates will be split into two teams and told that the house is out of bounds until further notice.

The two teams will battle it out in a variety of different games, with the winning team getting to choose housemates to re-enter the main house. The rest of the housemates will be forced to stay in the garden for the rest of the task.

Teams will first have to scavenge for hidden food and work together to survive in the wilderness. Food includes dried insects, hard boiled eggs, fruit, nuts and large water bottles.

Jeremy Kyle cured of his creepy crawly phobia

11 July 2014 4:01 PM, PDT

Jeremy Kyle has overcome his fear of creepy crawlies after undergoing psychotherapy.

The daytime TV presenter decided to confront his phobia in an episode of his own ITV show, due to air on Monday (July 14).

At the start of the taping, 49-year-old Kyle told the talkshow audience: "I have a terrifying fear of basically anything that crawls about the place."

He then introduced celebrity therapists Nik and Eva Speakman, who promised to change the way he saw spiders, insects and snakes using schema conditioning methods.

"I am, for the first time in ten years, terrified," Kyle told the duo. "Absolutely every part of my comfort zone has gone."

After explaining that he had been afraid of creepy crawlies for over 40 years, Kyle told the Speakmans that his fear extended to "spiders, rats, snakes... daddy long legs" and more.

"If there's a spider in the room, I couldn't kill it," he added. »

Jale Karaturp becomes fifth Big Brother 2014 evictee

11 July 2014 1:50 PM, PDT

Jale Karaturp has become the fifth housemate to leave the Big Brother 2014 house.

Jale was pitted against Ashleigh Coyle as Emma Willis revealed the final nominees in danger, but was evicted after receiving the majority of the public vote.

"It's surreal!" she told Willis as she sat down for her post-eviction chat.

"It wasn't too bad though," she added. "I saw my mum, I saw my sister, I saw you (Willis)!"

When asked why she thought the viewers may have voted to send her home, Jale said she had been "a bit miserable" during the last week.

"I had a one week break (from being nominated) and I got a bit complacent," she explained.

The 33-year-old from Surrey said that her first few weeks in the house were "tough" and a "horrible time".

"To be honest though, in those kind of situations it's like a challenge for me," she continued. »

Sky1 releases new Got To Dance trailer: Adam Garcia is back

11 July 2014 11:22 AM, PDT

Sky1 has released a trailer for the fifth series of Got To Dance.

The clip features the return of judge Adam Garcia, as well as a look at a key change to the show's format.

For the first time, each judge will be mentoring his or her own dancers throughout the competition.

Contestants will still need to obtain three stars during the initial audition stages to get onto the judges' shortlist, but Banjo, Wyatt and Garcia will then be able to select six acts from the qualifiers for their individual teams.

They will then mentor the acts they have chosen for the duration of the series.

"I'm thrilled to be back on the Got To Dance judging panel and can't wait to work with Kimberly and Ashley again," said Garcia.

"I'm so excited that for this year we'll be able to work so closely with our chosen dancers and really »

People Just Do Nothing: The best British comedy in years is on iPlayer

11 July 2014 11:00 AM, PDT

"We're going global, but you will very much have to be in the Brentford area to hear us."Mc Grindah

If you've already watched People Just Do Nothing, you'll already know what the fuss is about. It's bloody brilliant, isn't it?

If you haven't, read this article in full, and then click on the link at the bottom immediately and watch all four episodes on BBC iPlayer. You won't regret it.

Yes, iPlayer. The best British comedy in years is (until July 20 anyway) only available online.

While it's disheartening that so few people have been exposed to its comedic brilliance, it's also perhaps a positive sign for the new-look, online-only BBC Three that a show which originated as a YouTube experiment from a group of mates has slowly blossomed from a pilot to iPlayer series to four-episode run on the proper telly.

Big Brother: The housemates have a '70s party... and look ridiculous

11 July 2014 10:57 AM, PDT

The Big Brother housemates had a Disco Fever party yesterday (July 10), which must have been nice for them - and it was great for us, because look at the outfits!

We don't ever need to be persuaded to give the housemates a gentle ribbing, and these pictures are too good to ignore. Take Ash Harrison, who for some reason is trying to perfect his hair in this photograph...

But it wasn't just Ash. We presume that in this snap, Kimberly Kisselovich was upset about her big argument with Steven Goode...

... But maybe she was really upset about her outfit. I mean, look at it.

As for Danielle McMahon, we have no idea what look she was going for here - but we're certainly terrified.

To be fair, at least the housemates threw themselves into the whole thing - none more so than Mark Byron, who declared: "I look like a »

Big Brother: Housemates win waffles after becoming better

11 July 2014 9:08 AM, PDT

Big Brother housemates Winston Showan, Helen Wood and Mark Byron tried to better themselves today - in various tough challenges.

For the Personal Best task, the trio were each given a different activity to carry out - but what they didn't know is they would have to repeat the task twice, and they would have to do better the second time to pass.

Winston took part in the Hot Stuffing challenge - how many chillis could he eat in 60 seconds? He managed four on his first attempt, but bumped that up to five during the second round.

Elsewhere, Mark was lucky enough to face the Level Pegging task, and was told to put as many pegs on his face as possible. He managed 13 on his first attempt, but 20 on his second.

Finally, Helen faced the Balls Out challenge, in which she had to use her mouth to pull out balls »

Big Brother: Danielle McMahon backs Marlon Wallen over immunity fiasco

11 July 2014 8:56 AM, PDT

Big Brother housemate Danielle McMahon has offered her support to Marlon Wallen after the group continued to react angrily to his decision to save himself from eviction.

Marlon infuriated many of his fellow housemates when he snatched immunity for himself earlier this week - failing the shopping task for the group in the process.

While Marlon later apologised, the drama was still the talk of the house yesterday (July 10).

Helen Wood suggested that Marlon would be evicted next week, though she did acknowledge that some of the viewers may see it as playing the game, adding: "What's wrong with game playing? It is a game."

However, Marlon's former close friends Ash Harrison and Winston Showan took a dimmer view of his decision, as Ash said that he is "not with us anymore".

"Even though he did that, he had it in his mind that we'd stick up for him anyway, »

Big Brother: Steven, Kimberly in huge row over ex-boyfriend photo

11 July 2014 8:30 AM, PDT

Big Brother couple Steven Goode and Kimberly Kisselovich had an explosive row over her ex-boyfriend yesterday (July 10).

Steven was furious when he discovered that Kimberly had a photograph of her ex in the house, after her insistence that they were "on a break" when she came on the show.

Kimberly defended her decision to bring in the pictures, explaining that her ex is her friend and she is "not a spiteful person", but Steven admitted that he was "confused".

"My idea of going on a break is that you don't sit there and look at pictures of the person you're on a break with," he said. "You've been hiding them a little bit - you should have just been like, 'Just to let you know, I did bring photos of him in'.

"If it was me, I wouldn't have even told me about that, I would have chopped them up »

Benefits Street team to bring Immigration Street to Channel 4

11 July 2014 7:53 AM, PDT

Benefits Street might already have been renewed for a second series, but its production team are also working on brand new show Immigration Street.

Channel 4 confirmed today that the six-part programme will focus on life in Derby Road in Southampton.

The neighbourhood is ethnically diverse and the majority of people living there were not born in the UK, so Immigration Street is expected to explore how the changing population is developing the local community, relationships and friendships for people there.

"Immigration is clearly an emotive issue dominating British politics and debates right now," Channel 4's head of documentaries Nick Mirsky said.

"Although the experience of the changes brought about by immigration will be different from place to place, we expect many of the themes that emerge from following life on Derby Road will resonate across the country."

The news of Immigration Street comes shortly after Channel 5 commissioned a similar programme, »

Geordie Shore has been renewed by MTV for a ninth series - before the eighth has aired.

The group will return to MTV on July 22, but the channel has now confirmed that they'll be back on our screens again in the future.

The ninth series will see the group, including series eight's new cast members Kyle Christie and Aaron Chalmers, travelling to Paris and Somerset - though they have reportedly been banned from filming in Blackpool.

Further details have not yet been revealed about the ninth series, though some hints about series eight emerged as Charlotte Crosby revealed that Christie and Chalmers "totally mixed things up in the house".

"Relationships sparked out of nowhere, some confusing, some weird, and some very wrong," she joked. "So I can't wait to see how things unravel and who hooks up with who this time around!"

Meanwhile, Gaz Beadle revealed that Christie and Chalmers »
