19 hours ago | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

My husband, the actor Lyndam Gregory, who has died aged 59 of lung cancer, will be remembered for his roles in soaps, notably as Guppy in EastEnders (1995), Sammy in Coronation Street (1983) and Usha's old flame, Ashok, in The Archers. He also played Simon Field in the comedy Surgical Spirit (1989-92), and Wilson in Chucklevision (2005). He appeared on stage and did voiceovers, narrating a number of novels.

22 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Danniella Westbrook has appeared on TV, speaking candidly about her recent drug relapse.

It was revealed over the weekend that the former EastEnders actress had relapsed and taken cocaine again after splitting from her 24-year-old boyfriend while on holiday in Majorca. She had previously been clean for 12 years.

"I'll be honest with you, I'm not where I was with drugs… but it was a case of how long would it have been before I was, and that's what I was really frightened about," an emotional Westbrook told This Morning hosts Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford.

"I spoke to a family member before the story broke, and said that I had relapsed and was frightened and that I needed to do something. Then as soon as my agent called to say the story is breaking, I said I need to get help."

Westbrook, who split from her husband of 12 years in January this year, »

Suspects returns: How Towie and The Bill spawned Channel 5's drama hit

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

Channel 5's first original drama series for eight years, police procedural Suspects was seen by many as a huge risk when it launched earlier this year - unscripted, unglamorous, untested waters.

"I remember our production meeting for the first series," says Paul Marquess - Suspects co-creator and managing director of producers Newman Street. "I could just see the fear - people thinking I'd lost the plot."

But the semi-improvised series - which has its cast work not from a traditional script, but a detailed story document - was far from a failure. Instead, it proved to be one of the most diverting and original UK cop shows in recent memory, drawing an enormously positive reaction from critics.

"Everyone worked so hard on the show last year to make it great, but I was genuinely surprised at how well it was received," says Damien Molony, who plays passionate Detective Sergeant Jack Weston. »

The Office 11 years on: What Ricky Gervais, Martin Freeman and co did next

6 August 2014 8:44 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Ricky Gervais has confirmed that The Office's David Brent will be heading to the big screen with his own movie, Life on the Road.

So as we anticipate what Brent has been up to since the end of the BBC hit comedy, here's what the cast have done since:

Ricky Gervais

Ricky Gervais played the lead role as David Brent - the embarrassing, toe-curling and cringeworthy boss of company Wernham Hogg, devoid of self-awareness but poised with an unwavering love for the paper merchants he manages.

Gervais went on to create comedy Extras with Stephen Merchant, which was co-produced by the BBC and HBO and aired between 2005 and 2007. Gervais played ambitious actor Andy Millman, afflicted with a useless agent played by Merchant. Guest stars have included Patrick Stewart, Samuel L Jackson, Ben Stiller and Kate Winslet.

In 2009, Gervais starred in, wrote and directed his feature comedy debut The Invention of Lying. »

Alice In Wonderland: Through The Looking Glass Kicks Off Production

4 August 2014 8:34 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

At long last, the sequel to Disney’s massively successful, if narratively weak, Alice in Wonderland is starting to roll cameras, with James Bobin replacing Tim Burton in the director’s chair. It took a suprisingly long time for this next chapter of the planned franchise to get off the ground, considering the first film broke $1 billion at the box office, but a press release indicates that filming is now underway.

Officially titled Alice in Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass, the follow-up finds the original actors returning to their roles, with a bevy of new stars joining both the live-action and voice casts. What the sequel is exactly about is still foggy, but the story is said to “revisit Lewis Carroll’s beloved stories with an all-new new tale that travels back to Underland—and back in Time.”
