Strictly Come Dancing 2015 lineup rumours: Which celebrities could take part this year?

21 July 2015 2:59 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Strictly Come Dancing is still months away, but the rumours about which celebrities could be taking part this year are really starting to heat up now - and they've been going since January. So it felt like a good time to start to put together all the speculation we've heard to see if we can figure out who'll be hitting the ballroom in the new series.

Whether these stars actually end up donning Lycra and glitter remains to be seen, but these are the most likely according to the rumours we've heard lately...

Ayda Field

Who? Actress (and Robbie Williams's wife)

The rumour: Ayda is the first person we spotted being linked to this year's Strictly... all the way back in January, less than a month after last year's series finished! Apparently, she was approached for the show last year but had to pull out because she became pregnant. »

Fair warning: Piers Morgan will be back on Good Morning Britain in July

18 June 2015 2:31 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Consider yourselves warned: Piers Morgan will be back on the Good Morning Britain sofa next month.

The controversial broadcaster - who hosted the breakfast show for a week in April - will again fill in for Ben Shephard, who's off on his holidays.

But he'll only be on the programme for three days, from July 13 to July 15.

Morgan had mixed reviews for his time on Good Morning Britain in April, which in his first show saw him compare politician Ed Balls to Darth Vader and laugh off a contributor's swearing.

It seems that Susanna Reid will be pleased to be on the sofa with him again, as she previously suggested that it is a "real privilege" working with Morgan.

On the other hand, someone who probably won't be tuning in to watch is John Cleese, who hit the headlines recently after branding Morgan a "chancer" who "hasn't been talented for »

4 May 2015 4:27 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Jimmy Greaves is in intensive care after suffering a severe stroke.

The former footballer and broadcaster, who previously had a minor stroke in 2012, was taken ill on Sunday (May 3).

A statement from the 75-year-old's family read: "His wife, Irene, and four children have asked for privacy during what is a worrying time for the family. They will issue a bulletin on his condition when it is appropriate.

"He was due to be inducted into the Tottenham Hotspur Hall of Fame on 13 May at a sell-out ceremony at White Hart Lane."

Greaves scored 44 goals in 57 games for England between 1959 and 1967, putting him fourth on the list of all-time scorers for the national team.

The striker played for Chelsea, AC Milan, Tottenham Hotspur, West Ham, Brentwood, Chelmsford City, Barnet and Woodford Town in club football.

He enjoyed a successful broadcasting career after retiring from the game in 1980.

Newzoids: Why ITV's new show is 'spikier, edgier' than Spitting Image

14 April 2015 11:00 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Jon Culshaw and Debra Stephenson have made their names with their impressions of the famous faces all around us - and now they're back to provide more familiar voices in ITV's new satirical, topical puppet show Newzoids.

But how is it different from the classic series Spitting Image? Who is the best political leader to impersonate? And why did Michael McIntyre freak out at his impression? Digital Spy sat down with Jon and Debra to find out the answers to all those questions and more...

So how is this not Spitting Image?

Jon: "It's got a 21st century feel to it. It's a different rack of characters which generates a different style of joke. It's faster, somehow. And it just sort of reflects the whole coalition, social media generation. Nowadays, the puppets have got more of a spikiness, more of an edgy exaggeration to them. And of course, the comedy »

When British daytime TV and geek heroes collide

10 March 2015 7:17 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Doctor Who, Star Trek and more: what happened when sci-fi, horror & fantasy heroes have popped up on British daytime TV over the years…

Pre-YouTube, fandom was a hard-earned thing. It took research, dedication and enough patience to hover over the family video player’s ‘record’ button for an entire episode of TV-am in anticipation of six minutes with Sylvester McCoy. Six minutes in which the Seventh Doctor would be polled if he was a cat or dog person and then asked to taste a lemon roulade.

Scarcity bred desire in those days, so we took what we could get from our heroes of yore, even if that meant watching Hammer Horror legend Ingrid Pitt make a chocolate mousse, or the aforementioned McCoy attempt to answer fan questions above the hubbub of a Nottingham swimming pool complex. The collision of geek icons and UK daytime magazine shows was sometimes illuminating, sometimes excruciating, »
