Eerie Poster For Texas Chainsaw Prequel Leatherface Hints At The Birth Of Evil

15 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Witness the beginning of your end. Evocative words for a movie poster, and it’s rather apt for one depicting the origin tale behind the Sawyer family and its chainsaw-wielding maniac. The old and horrifying Texan tale is no stranger to the big screen, but Millennium Films’ upcoming feature is taking the story back its dark beginnings with Leatherface.

Picking up the infamous chainsaw and mask will be Sam Strike, the British actor best known for his appearance on BBC’s soap drama, Eastenders. Once Millennium locked down the actor earlier in the year, progress on the prequel has been ramping up ever since, with Vanessa Grasse and Stephen Dorff also on board for the scarefest. The pair are set to play the young and innocent (first victim?) Lizzy and a lawman hellbent on unravelling the unspeakable evil haunting the Texas state. Beyond that, Leatherface will also star Lili Taylor as Verne Sawyer, »

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

Strictly Come Dancing star Kellie Bright has admitted that she will find it difficult mixing her training with her role on EastEnders.

Bright - who plays Linda Carter in the soap - joked that she will have a "weird glare" in a few weeks as the demands of both shows begin to take their toll.

"I'm going to take each day as it comes," she said. "I obviously watched Jake [Wood] do the same thing last year. The only good thing I can say is that [the EastEnders studio is] over the road so it's all in this little area, and I actually live quite close to here as well. I'm just going to be in Elstree really for the next few weeks!

Soap killers: Which soap town is the most deadly to live in?

3 September 2015 4:01 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Death! Destruction! Whodunits with cliffhanger endings! From Lucy Beale to Tina McIntyre to (almost) Ross Barton, there's been a lot of murders in soapland lately.

We've taken the big five soaps and crunched the numbers to discover the deadliest (and safest) places to live. How? By dividing the total murders by the show's number of years on air. We've been strict with the rules, so accidental killings don't count unless there was malicious intent. We also don't allow murders that occur miles away from the main location (unless it was somehow started there, like the Neighbours plane bomb).

Yep, we know it's morbid, but it's grimly fascinating. So here are the soaps ranked by their murder rates:

5. Neighbours

Murders: 10 in 30 years (Click here for the full list)

Average murders per year: 0.33

Even sunny Erinsborough can have the odd murder here and there, but not that many in comparison to other soap towns. »

Paul Nicholls, Emma Rigby and Poldark's Heida Reed are heading to the Caribbean for Death in Paradise.

The trio will guest star in the lighthearted crime drama's upcoming fifth series next year on BBC One.

Death in Paradise star Kris Marshall Q&A: 'It's been my hardest job'

"I play a fashion photographer in my episode which is very different from many of my previous roles so was a great challenge. Filming in Guadeloupe was incredible too. We had so much fun!"

Strictly Come Dancing: Who's whipping their top off? Who's throwing up with nerves? 18 secrets from the stars

3 September 2015 4:01 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

With the Strictly Come Dancing launch show just around the corner, it was time for a little trip to the studios to meet the lucky (or unlucky) stars taking to the ballroom this year. Jeremy Vine was busy on the radio so couldn't be there, but we still managed to wangle plenty of secrets out of the celebs...

1. Don't expect Peter Andre to be whipping his shirt off immediately.

"I reckon I'm going to last ages. I do. I mean, the girls look awesome – all of the girls look awesome. But the guys, you've got a professional runner, you've got a boxer… Iwan's going to be first. He looks good, you know."

2. Jamelia's daughters don't even recognise her anymore.

"You become obsessed with it. Literally, this weekend I was washing up and dancing. My daughters were like, 'Mummy, what are you doing?' and I was like, 'I'm not your mummy anymore. »

Who Killed Nelson Nutmeg?: from microbudget moviemaking to world premiere in a year

2 September 2015 4:16 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Co-writer and director Danny Stack most recently worked on Thunderbirds Are Go! But he's been rather busy over the last year...

Danny Stack was a man on a mission. He wanted to make a British family movie, aimed at the big screen, on a tight budget. As news breaks that it's set to premiere at the London Film Festival next month, we asked him to tell us about the project. Without further ado, over to Danny...

Who Killed Nelson Nutmeg? (Wknn) is a unique British family film in today’s modern market for two main reasons: it’s got children in the lead roles, and the film was made on a microbudget - 100% indie moviemaking style. A year after wrap, the film is set to have its world premiere at the London Film Festival. As the co-writer/director of the project, I could never have imagined such an outcome, so »

2 September 2015 4:00 AM, PDT | Virgin Media - TV | See recent Virgin Media - TV news »

'EastEnders' Robbie Jackson is to return to Albert Square with a new dog named Wellard Two. The street sweeper, played by Dean Gaffney, was known for his close bond with his beloved German Shepherd Wellard who sadly passed away in 2008 after Robbie left Walford for India to be with his girlfriend Nita Mistry in 2004. And although Robbie was devastated to hear Wellard - who he'd left in the care of his pal Gus Smith - had died during his last appearance in the BBC One soap in 2010, Dean has now revealed a new dog is joining the soap.

Hollyoaks turns 20: What happened to the original cast from 1995?

1 September 2015 4:01 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Holly birthday, Happyoaks! Sorry, let's try that again. Happy birthday, Hollyoaks! That's better.

It's often written off as the runt of the soap litter, but we're rather affectionate towards Hollyoaks. Surprisingly, it's not only survived but is set to celebrate its 20th anniversary this autumn. It now boasts 50 regulars and a faster pace than any other soap, but can you believe that Hollyoaks once focused on the adventures of only seven main characters?

Launching on Channel 4 in October 1995 with just one episode per week, Hollyoaks gradually earned a place in viewers' hearts as it followed the tangled lives and torrid loves of Kurt, Jambo, Louise, Maddie, Natasha, Dawn and Tony. So where are Chester's magnificent seven now?

Jeremy Edwards (Kurt)

Ex-model Jeremy Edwards' character Kurt Benson was Hollyoaks' original king of cool, known for his love of his motorbikes, music and the local ladies. Kurt eventually settled »

I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here 2015 rumours: Who's entering the jungle?

30 August 2015 4:01 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

It feels like only yesterday that Gemma Collins was crying mascara stained tears while complaining of contracting malaria - but this year's I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here is now just three months away.

Last year's series saw Carl Fogarty crowned King of the Jungle. But which stars will be enduring the Australian kangaroo anus-eating adventures on the ITV show this year? Here's the rumoured line-up so far:

Spencer Matthews

Who? Original Made in Chelsea cast member and serial heartbreaker.

The rumour: It's currently being suggested that 28-year-old Spencer is going to leave the E4 reality show, and is in "advanced talks" with I'm a Celebrity producers to enter the jungle. If true, he can always get some top tips from close friend and former Made in Chelsea star Hugo Taylor, who took part in the jungle and memorably sobbed throughout in 2012.

Likelihood rating: 3/5

Paul Gascoigne

Who? Former international footballer and football manager, »

New trailer for ITV’s Jekyll & Hyde

30 August 2015 3:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

ITV has released a new trailer for Charlie Higson’s upcoming action fantasy series Jekyll & Hyde, which sees Tom Bateman (Da Vinci’s Demons) leading the cast as Robert Jekyll and his alter-ego Mr. Hyde. Check it out below…

Set in 1930’s London at a time of Hollywood glamour, aerodynamic cars and monster movies, the drama will pay homage to the Stevenson novel, and focus on the young, attractive, troubled hero, Robert Jekyll, the grandson of the original doctor. At the heart of the drama is Robert Jekyll’s quest to discover his real identity, his true family history and the nature of his ‘curse’. Jekyll transforms into Hyde in moments of extreme anger, stress and when his or the lives of others are threatened.

Higson’s Jekyll is a young, sensitive and naïve man of intellect and morality, a well meaning if slightly repressed character who slips between his two personas unwillingly. »

The X Factor series 1: Rowetta Satchell, Tabby Callaghan, Steve Brookstein - Where are they now?

28 August 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Saturday nights are no longer for going out - The X Factor is finally returning to our small screens this weekend with new hosts, a fresh judging panel and a fair few format shake-ups.

But whatever happened to the finalists of the first ever series - "barking bloody mad" Rowetta Satchell, red-haired wannabe rocker Tabby Callaghan, cheesy best friend duo 2 to Go and eventual winner Steve Brookstein?

Roberta Howett

Roberta Howett went from unhappy telecommunications worker to Louis Walsh's Dublin darling after her successful X Factor audition. But perhaps it was the curse of the Walsh that resulted in her early exit from the series when she became the first act to be eliminated.

Now 33, Roberta appeared on the debut album of Spanish composer Toni Castells in 2007. She finally released her debut album in 2010, its lead single 'Beautiful Lies' became her first Top 40 single in the Irish Singles Chart, »

Strictly Come Dancing is drawing ever closer, and we're now finding out one by one which celebrities are taking part this year.

Of course, we have no idea how they'll do on the show, we've not seen them dance one step and we don't know which professional dancers they'll be paired with. But as if that's going to stop us from making snap judgements.

So read on to find out how we ranked the celebs (from least likely to win to most likely to win) - and keep checking back as more famous faces are announced to see how our rankings change...

15. Jeremy Vine

Sorry Jeremy - but even the bookies agree with us that you're going to struggle. Jeremy was the first celeb announced for this year's Strictly, and the oddsmakers promptly announced that he had no chance of winning even though they had no idea who he was up against. »
