Steph and Dom Meet Nigel Farage review: The Ukip leader finds his level

15 December 2014 2:30 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

"There are two types of politicians," says Nigel Farage, deep in discussion with 'the drunk ones' from Gogglebox. "Those who want to be something and those who want to do something. I want to do something."

Nigel Farage definitely wants to "do something". Judging by his latest venture into TV, courtesy of a very generous Channel 4, that "something" is be on TV. Here is a man who wants to be famous and he's just about willing to do anything to get there. Even it means having beer splashed on you and flirting with D-listers.

Steph and Dom Meet Nigel Farage was yet another 30 minutes of handy free publicity for Farage in a pre-election year that will make or break his party. It revealed very little about the man we didn't otherwise know, other than the fact he fits in very well with a pair of posh bumbling booze hounds. »

Kirsty Wark webchat – as it happened

19 November 2014 6:08 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The broadcaster and novelist was with us to answer your questions in a live webchat – catch up on her answers on Quentin Tarantino, being shortlisted for the Bad Sex Awards, interviewing Glenn Greenwald and more

2.07pm GMT

Thanks everyone for all your questions and to Kirsty for her great answers. Have a great afternoon!

2.02pm GMT

Vee12 asks:

Hello Kirsty.

What ambitions/goals do you still have – broadcasting or otherwise – that you care to share?

Brush up my French. Relearn the piano. Play better tennis. Drink better wine. Where do you want me to stop?

2.02pm GMT

JezKeen asks:

A lot of people seem to think Laura Kuenssberg is a right wing attack dog, I saw her interview with Denis Healey after Tony Benn’s death and was appalled at her confrontational attitude towards a very elderly man.

Do you feel the trend for new presenters is to outpaxman Paxman ?

Media Monkey’s Diary: Michael Buerk, Robert Peston and Emily Maitlis

16 November 2014 10:02 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

• Here’s an ethical conundrum. You’re booked to work on a furrowed-brow Radio 4 show every Wednesday up to mid-December, but this clashes with an opportunity to appear on a trashy reality TV series, and make enough (more than £100,000, it’s said) to pay your gigantic double glazing bill at a stroke: do you say you’re duty-bound to honour your commitments, or lucratively join a bunch of airhead celebrities you despise? It’s the kind of dilemma panellists on The Moral Maze are regularly confronted with, and we know what their chairman Michael Buerk decided; though taking up his place on I’m A Celebrity apparently meant leaving the BBC in the lurch by giving it only limited notice, judging by the fact that he’s named in the Radio Times as presenting both the 12 November and 19 November editions. When the former went out, however, Buerk was already in Oz. »

New Who Review – “Mummy on the Orient Express”

13 October 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

There’s one of two things you can be almost guaranteed of when you see a story that takes place on a train – romance, or a murder.

Mummy On The Orient Express

By  Jamie Mathieson

Directed by Paul Wilmshurst

As a farewell fling, The Doctor takes Clara on a trip aboard the Orient Express in space, exactingly copied from the original, except for the bit about being spaceworthy.  It becomes quickly apparent that all is not well on the craft – a mysterious unseen beast is killing people exactly 66 seconds after the victim sees it – and no one else does.  It turns out this particular journey is a massive two-fold trap – the ship is filled with scientists versed in areas of research that pertain to the beast, and are pressed into service to capture it, by any means necessary.

The Doctor quickly joins the press gang, understanding that the only way »

Ann Widdecombe was worst Hignfy guest host, says Paul Merton

4 October 2014 5:21 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Paul Merton has said that former Conservative MP Ann Widdecombe and ex-Labour Party leader Lord Neil Kinnock were his least favourite Have I Got News for You guest hosts.

Merton has been a contributor to the BBC panel show since 1990, along with satirist Ian Hislop.

The comedian was speaking at the Cheltenham Literature Festival on Friday (October 3), when he named Widdecombe and Lord Kinnock as the "two worst hosts" since the show adopted a guest presenter format.

"[Lord Kinnock] was very mistrustful of every word he saw, he potentially thought it was a trip up," Merton said, according to The Radio Times.

Merton also spoke about a notorious November 2007 episode, which saw guest host Widdecombe end up in an on-air spat with comedian Jimmy Carr.

"The first time she was on, it wasn't too bad... and everyone benefits from good editing," he explained. "But I don't think she realised how much help she was getting. »

Never Mind the Buzzcocks: Rhod Gilbert on becoming the new host

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

It feels like we've had guest hosts on Never Mind the Buzzcocks forever, but that's about to change. Yup, we have a new - permanent - host, and it's none other than comedian Rhod Gilbert. Since that's a pretty big thing to take on, we called up Rhod - while he was dealing with an unruly dog on a Welsh mountain (good preparation, in other words) - to find out how he'll cope with difficult guests, what'll be different and why the first single he ever bought is not a good sign of how credible he is...

Hi Rhod. Are you going to be more of a Lamarr or more of an Amstell?

"I don't think I'm either to be honest with you. You can go round in circles analysing these things to death. Both of those guys hosted a lot of shows, they left their mark on it indelibly. »
