Celebrity Big Brother 2015: Who is going in? 11 early rumours

11 December 2014 9:49 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Wondering what you're going to do when X Factor and Strictly end? Fear not friends, because yet another series of Celebrity Big Brother is just around the corner. It is expected to return on January 5 on Channel 5 and this year it will have a "twisted fairytale" theme.

Emma Willis and Rylan Clark will be back in January with another batch of famous (and not so famous) faces, willing to humiliate themselves for our amusement.

Here are 15 early rumours about potential housemates for the 2015 series.

1. Danniella Westbrook

The former EastEnders actress has had a terrible 2014 and she's recently been on This Morning talking about her financial plight, so it isn't a surprise to hear that she's a new hot favourite to be heading into the house. Producers will no doubt hope that she's prepared to spill the beans about her troubles with drug addictions.

2. Sammy Winward

She seems like a bit of a long shot, »

Gabrielle Reidy obituary

15 October 2014 10:46 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Irish actor with stage, film and television credits ranging from Ibsen to Holby City

The Irish actor Gabrielle Reidy, who has died of cancer aged 54, made her first appearance at the Abbey theatre in Dublin as a child and her last, four years ago, as Bessie Burgess in an acclaimed production of Seán O'Casey's masterpiece about the Easter Rising, The Plough and the Stars. In between, she had a varied career in television, film and on the stage, which included playing mother to both Scarlett Johansson and Daniel Radcliffe, respectively, in the film Girl With a Pearl Earring (2003) and the West End revival in 2007 of Peter Shaffer's Equus. In the latter, she was a flaky, Bible-thumping teacher and it was typical of her that she made the small role vivid and memorable without being self-aggrandising. Fiery and determined in life, with a broad open face and strong presence on stage, »

Doctor Who complete reviews: Into the Dalek

2 September 2014 7:29 AM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

Let's take a moment and spare a thought for the poor advertising people. An advertising employee's life is a tricky one. He or she may have a fat bottomed bank balance that makes their world go round but they face a tricky task. How do they put a new spin on a familiar advertising icon and keep it fresh? From puppies rolling around in loo paper through to cartoon tea northerners in big caps, these are the faces of vital products and if they get tired or stale, the folks won't buy 'em any more – leaving those poor advertising sorts as crying puddles in corners.

Taking this concept into time and space, let's also spare a thought for the big cheeses at the Doctor Who studios. Doctor Who has its fair share of familiar icons – the sort that you'd list in a Family Fortunes studio to win a hefty jackpot cash prize. »

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. »
