Cher Lloyd: 'Cheryl is Simon Cowell's golden girl - she won't let Rita Ora get close'

4 hours ago

Cher Lloyd has suggested that Rita Ora may struggle when she joins The X Factor as there's only one "golden girl" for Simon Cowell... no, not Sinitta - Cheryl Fernandez-Versini.

The former X Factor contestant revealed that she was "shocked" music mogul Cowell hired 'Poison' singer Ora for the ITV talent show.

"I was very surprised that Simon hired Rita," Lloyd told Heat magazine.

"I was shocked - that's for sure. I'm not sure if it's a good or bad thing, but I guess she's young and very influential. She's definitely on trend, but we'll see..."

The 21-year-old added: "No-one is going to fill Cheryl's shoes without a fight, and anyone who knows Cheryl knows she'll always be Simon's golden girl - she won't let Rita get close to where she's at."

Lloyd was mentored by Fernandez-Versini on the show back in 2010, but the pair had a public fall-out »

Chris Evans wanted Nick Grimshaw for Tfi Friday, but Simon Cowell got him first

4 hours ago

Chris Evans has revealed that he wanted Nick Grimshaw to host new episodes of Tfi Friday.

The presenter previously described the BBC Radio 1 DJ as "the future" of the Channel 4 show, but this was before Simon Cowell signed him up for The X Factor.

Evans told The Sun: "Unfortunately he has another contract I found out about in The Sun newspaper. He's exclusive with ITV, so it's very disappointing."

It should however be noted that Grimshaw has not signed an exclusive deal for The X Factor, as he will remain on BBC Radio 1.

"He will always be welcome on the show, though," he added.

After Grimshaw signed up for The X Factor, Evans decided to stay on as presenter of Tfi Friday, and says he is "very excited" to be fronting the next eight shows.

Channel 4 confirmed the comeback for the show after the success of this month's one-off special. »

BBC Trust: 'We have not ignored young people on BBC Three - they have a valid voice'

5 hours ago

The BBC Trust has said that it has not ignored the voice of young people in provisionally accepting proposals to move BBC Three online.

Speaking at a media briefing today, the Trust was asked about the results of a Digital Spy survey of 33,484 people where 87% of those polled said it was the wrong decision to axe the station as a broadcast TV channel.

"I think we've absolutely taken it into account," said BBC Trust chairman Rona Fairhead.

"The strength of feeling from the BBC audience is very clear. They are absolutely passionate about BBC Three and its programmes and that has been built up over the 11 or so years that BBC Three has been operating.

"What we have tried to do is balance two things: the fact that the direction is to go online but to accept that this audience wants and needs to have full access so that it can watch the programmes online. »

BBC Trust recommends that BBC One +1 proposal be rejected

6 hours ago

The BBC Trust has provisionally recommended that proposals to launch a BBC One +1 channel be rejected.

Under the proposal, the catch-up service would have replaced BBC Three as a broadcast channel.

Though the Trust has approved plans to move BBC Three online - contingent on a further 28 days' consultation - it has suggested that the BBC One +1 proposal "fails the public value test and should be rejected".

The channel would have "limited impact on reach to 16 to 34-year-olds, which means it would be unlikely to mitigate the impact of changes to BBC Three", according to the Trust.

It further concluded that the proposal would have limited public value given the need for 24% of UK television households to upgrade their equipment in order to receive +1, the inability to offer 'opt-out' programmes for the nations and regions, and what it calls "the lack of distinctiveness" of the proposal.

Big Brother Nikki Grahame hits back at Helen Wood claims: 'I never got a formal warning'

6 hours ago

Big Brother star Nikki Grahame has hit back at Helen Wood's recent claims about her.

Nikki - who recently suggested that Helen needs "help" - wrote a long post online in response to her rival's recent column.

Helen had suggested in the piece that Nikki received a formal warning in the house that wasn't shown and also suggested that she had special treatment, with chocolate written into her contract.

But Nikki took to her Twitter page to respond, saying: "I have refrained from making a bunch of nasty, silly and misconstrued comments and using Twitter as a weapon because I just think it's a waste of time and not me at all and I'll continue to do so.

"When you defend everything someone says about you it turns into a game of ping-pong which I can't be bothered with and I know you guys certainly can't be bothered to »

BBC Three's move online is provisionally approved by BBC Trust

6 hours ago

The BBC Trust has recommended proposals to close down BBC Three as a broadcast channel and move it online in 2016 - but its decision is not final.

The Trust will carry out another round of consultation in the coming weeks, as it wants to feel confident that BBC Three's "risk-taking" remit and existing audience will still be served across the corporation's other TV channels and services.

BBC Trust: 'We have not ignored young people on BBC Three - they have a valid voice'

"We want a strong, sustainable BBC which is innovative, distinctive and relevant and has clear boundaries with the commercial market. We have reached our provisional conclusions with this over-arching objective in mind," said BBC Trust chairman Rona Fairhead.

"It is clear that the long-term future of broadcasting is online and the BBC needs to find new and exciting ways to help audiences make that transition, while bearing down on costs overall. »

Sacha Dhawan on playing a drug addict: "I had so many cans of Red Bull"

18 hours ago

Sacha Dhawan plays a drug addict in Channel 4's new series Not Safe For Work - and has revealed that Red Bull played a big part in his performance.

Dhawan's character - the hedonistic Danny - binges on drugs and booze whilst neglecting his office duties, with disastrous results.

"If I was on coke in the scenes, I'd have so many cans of Red Bull - just to kind of get that edge going!" the actor told Digital Spy.

"I haven't dabbled in what Danny's dabbled in - I haven't taken any drugs - but I really wanted it to be as real as possible. Sometimes [addicts in drama] can just be so silly and generic.

"I wanted Danny to have different reactions depending on what drug he was on - so either he was really high on pills, or he was almost sleep-walking when he was on ketamine. I really wanted »
