BBC boss Danny Cohen defends Children in Need over cash hold claims

20 October 2014 3:07 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

BBC boss Danny Cohen has dismissed claims that Children in Need is holding back on £87 million in funds.

The director general responded to reports that the annual charity drive was not using a large amount of donations from its investment portfolio.

Writing in an official blog post, Cohen explained how the charity handles its donations, while insisting that vulnerable children will suffer if people stopped sending money each year.

"I have read with deep dismay this week's headlines about Children in Need," he wrote. "Accusations have been made that the charity is sitting on a large cash pile whilst asking the British public to donate more. The implication is that Children in Need is both not spending its money wisely and doesn't actually need further public donations anyway.

"Nothing could be further from the truth. Taking a piece of superficial detail, in isolation, and without the supporting facts, doesn't explain what is going on. »

The X Factor 2014: week two as it happened

19 October 2014 12:58 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

This week, X Factor introduced its contestants to the 1980s and then eliminated two of them. Heres the whole weekend as it happened, with Stuart Heritage.

8.58pm BST

And that really is it. Four down, twelve to go. So, as we say goodbye to Stephanie and Chloe, let me quickly just thank you for coming along and making me miss the first 15 minutes of Homeland because Ive got to read all your comments now.

The liveblog returns next Saturday, for X Factors Songs From The Movies night, where the contestants are almost guaranteed to sing a selection of songs from plays and TV shows and adverts but not from actual films. If this deluge of gibberish inexplicably isnt enough for you, follow me on Twitter (Im @StuHeritage). If it is, though, then who could possibly blame you? See you next week!

8.56pm BST

In her best bits package, Chloe Jasmine »

19 October 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Tim Wonnacott and his professional partner Natalie Lowe are the third couple to leave Strictly Come Dancing.

The Bargain Hunt expert and Lowe found themselves in the dance-off alongside Mark Wright and Karen Hauer.

The bottom two acts were decided through a combination of viewer votes and judges' scores.

Wonnacott and Lowe performed their paso doble to Tina Turner's 'Simply the Best', while Wright and Hauer danced a quickstep to 'Tiger Feet' by Mud.

Wright's quickstep originally earned him a score of 29 during yesterday's (October 18) show, while Wonnacott's performance got him a 19.

Judges Craig Revel Horwood and Darcey Bussell both took the decision to save Wright and Hauer, with Bruno Tonioli sealing their fate.

"The white knight won the challenge," Tonioli stated.

Wonnacott said: "It's a great treat to be on a programme like Strictly. For an old geezer like me - who comes along in his 64th year and he's slightly portly, »

18 October 2014 1:43 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Jake Wood and Caroline Flack have tied in first place in week four of Strictly Come Dancing.

The EastEnders actor's Elvis-themed Jive with Janette Manrara scored 33 from the judges, as did Flack's Quickstep with Pasha Kovalev.

Judge Darcey Bussell told Wood that he "definitely shook [her] up", while head judge Len Goodman added that it was a "full-on, dynamic performance".

Bruno Tonioli told Flack that he couldn't wait to see her perform another Quickstep, and Craig Revel Horwood said he thought the dance was "gorgeous".

At the bottom of this week's scorecard is Scott Mills, whose American Smooth to 'Total Eclipse of the Heart' earned a low 15 points.

Revel Horwood, who awarded Mills a two, quipped: "You are an exception to the rule that everyone can learn to dance."

Tonioli said: "It looked like an American tragedy."

Cheers, Moe's, Queen Vic: What is TV's best pub?

18 October 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Men Behaving Badly made a brief return in the form of a one-off sketch last night (October 13) as part of the Stand Up To Cancer telethon on Channel 4.

One of the highlights of the original series was Gary (Martin Clunes) and Tony's (Neil Morrissey) quest to find a new pub after The Crown gets a revamp. Gary's system of ranking their locals with different categories is a great tool for real-life pub crawls after moving somewhere new. Try it!

With this in mind, we pondered which pubs from TV history would rank well using a system similar to Gary's? We've chosen just a handful of famous watering holes in order to find the best one. The only rule is that they need to serve alcoholic drinks, so Central Perk doesn't count.

Moe's Tavern (The Simpsons) - 18/50

Clientele: 6

Booze and Snacks: 4

Cleanliness: 1

Atmosphere: 4

Perks: 3

15 October 2014 2:49 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Mary Berry has spoken for the first time about her run-in with Danny Dyer at the TV Choice Awards.

Dyer issued a public apology to Berry for grabbing her while accepting the Best Soap prize on behalf of EastEnders at the TV Choice Awards.

"Danny who? Oh, he was just a drunk chap. I feel sorry for him," The Mirror quotes Berry as saying at a Harry Potter promotional event.

"Actually I'm sure he didn't mean it. I took no notice of him. He was like a naughty boy. It doesn't matter."

Berry also responded to Simon Cowell's recent suggestion that The Great British Bake Off is boring in comparison to The X Factor.

"Has he seen the ratings recently? I don't watch The X Factor or Britain's Got Talent," she quipped.

Berry has starred on The Great British Bake Off since 2010. »

Zoe Lucker: 'I couldn't imagine Jake Wood on Strictly'

15 October 2014 8:42 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Strictly Come Dancing star Jake Wood has been planning to take part in the competition for a while, his former EastEnders co-star Zoe Lucker has suggested.

Lucker - who will feature in the new series of Waterloo Road for her final few episodes as Carol Barry - told Digital Spy that she thinks Wood is "absolutely amazing" on Strictly.

"I texted him last week saying, 'You're outstanding and I'm so excited for you'," she said. "He's just amazing and who knew? He's brilliant."

Lucker added that she never expected to see her former on-screen boyfriend on the show, saying: "I know at one point he did mention Strictly to me. I'd done it myself before then and it was the year that Scott Maslen was doing it. He asked me, 'What do you think about it?', but I couldn't imagine Jake doing it.

Danny Dyer wants late night EastEnders

15 October 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | Virgin Media - TV | See recent Virgin Media - TV news »

Danny Dyer wants to make late night 'EastEnders' specials. The 37-year-old actor - who is famous for playing foul-mouthed hard men in films such as 'The Football Factory' - stars as Queen Vic landlord Mick Carter in the BBC One soap and has confessed he wishes his character could swear. He said: ''I'd love to push the boundaries. The show would be perfect if they'd let us do some swearing.'' However, despite hoping for more gritty scenes, Danny admits he's not sure if viewers could handle it if he stripped off for the cameras. He added to the Daily Mirror newspaper: ''I'd frighten people, »

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles review: A shell-shocking cowa-blunder

13 October 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Jonathan Liebesman; Screenwriters: Josh Appelbaum, André Nemec, Evan Daugherty; Starring: Megan Fox, Will Arnett, William Fichtner, Whoopi Goldberg; Running time: 101 mins; Certificate: 12A

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is vastly superior to any of its producer Michael Bay's Transformers movies. But that's like saying having the latest U2 album automatically downloaded onto your iTunes without consent is preferable to Bono kicking down your front door, strapping you into a straight jacket and forcing you to listen to his band's latest offering while slapping you around the face with The Edge's beanie hat every time you nod off.

There's little to keep one awake during this latest effort to transform those pizza-loving turtles into big screen icons, as this uninspired production is clearly led by marketing imperatives rather than storytelling ones. It should have been renamed Tmnt: The Secret of the Snooze.

At least moments of outrage form some kind of engagement, »

The X Factor 2014: first live show as it happens

12 October 2014 1:14 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

After last nights marathon, two X Factor contestants were shown the door. Stuart Heritage liveblogged the entire weekend, as it happened.

9.14pm BST

And that really is it for the weekend. While we say goodbye and good job I didnt bother to memorise your surnames to Blonde Electra and Overload Generation, its time for me to say goodbye.

Youve been wonderful, but then again I never had any doubts to the contrary. Ill be back here next Saturday, when X Factor will only be two hours long. Imagine! Also, why not follow me on Twitter (Im @StuHeritage) to see me whining about liveblogging throughout the week in real time? Now get out of here. Weve already missed 15 minutes of Homeland.

9.12pm BST

Thankfully, this is probably the right decision. I was worried for a second there. That said, it would have been funny if theyd stayed, just because Simon hates them so much. »

The lessons Gotham can learn from Smallville

10 October 2014 9:43 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

As Gotham premieres in the UK, Phoebe-Jane considers what the show can learn from long-running superhero prequel, Smallville...

Please note: this article refers only to Gotham's UK broadcast. Our Us episode reviews are here.

"Somebody save me/I’ve been waiting for you" 

If excitement about tonight's UK premiere of Fox’s Batman prequel series Gotham has got you caterwauling the lyrics to the Smallville theme tune on rooftops in anticipation, early whispers from fellow Bat-fans over in the Us who’ve had a look at the first episodes are saying there is much for us to look forward to as we wait for it to descend on Channel 5 here.

So far, we know that the timescale Gotham sticks with sees Batman as barely a notion to the boy-Bruce Wayne, and instead takes Detective James Gordon as its central character. Gordon here is a little different to the ‘Jim’ we’ve come to know, »

ITVBe launches - The new home for showbiz TV: Live blog as it happened

8 October 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

In the '80s, we got Countdown and Channel 4. In the '90s, we got the Spice Girls and Channel 5. In the '00s, we got Dave and Top Gear repeats.

And in the whatever-we-call-this-decade, we've got ITVBe and Towie. Lots and lots of Towie.

Not content with ITV2, ITV3 and ITV4, the broadcaster launches ITVBe this evening, a home for "entertainment and lifestyle" programming. That basically means more Towie.

Who would want to miss this momentous moment in broadcasting history? All the big guns - Jamelia, Mark Wright and Denise Van Outen - are involved at some point tonight, and we'll be sticking it out for the duration.

We'll be live blogging the whole evening from the Peter Andre kick-off at 7pm to the closing of the reem Towie party at 11pm - just dipping out in time to avoid Joe Swash on Celebrity Dinner Date.
