22 August 2014 2:50 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Tumble host Alex Jones has been joining in with trampolining training ahead of tomorrow night's show (August 23).

The presenter has clocked up some jumping practice as she is planning to open the show with an acrobatic routine alongside the series' ten professionals.

Producers are transforming the studio floor into a huge matrix of trampolines, and Jones is preparing an introduction that puts her at the heart of the gymnasts' performance.

Equipped with an empty plastic water bottle in place of a microphone, the One Show host was shown how to bounce high in the air, before controlling her landing. She was also coached on how to fall onto her back and bounce up on her feet again.

"Alex loves being part of Tumble and has been a great sport," said a show insider. "She is properly getting stuck in and definitely cranking her presenting duties up a notch.

Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford have become a fixture of our morning telly-watching thanks to, er, This Morning so it seems fitting that they're now going to be hosting a quiz together!

If you want to get an idea of the show, watch the clip below - then read on, because we called up Eamonn to find out more about the show and how he keeps his marriage to Ruth so happy...

Why was this show good for you and Ruth to do together as your first quiz show?

17 August 2014 4:54 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Big Brother winner Helen Wood has defended herself against accusations of bullying.

Wood triumphed over fellow housemate Ashleigh Coyle in a closely-fought final on Friday (August 15).

Former Celebrity Big Brother housemate Denise Welch criticised the result, writing on Twitter that she was both "appalled" and "upset" by the result.

Speaking to the Daily Star, Wood hit back at the former Loose Women panellist: "I shouldn't really respond to someone like Denise Welch when she's in her 50s and she goes on Big Brother, gets absolutely lashed and gets in hot tubs with teenage boys with her t*ts out."

Adding that Welch was "entitled to her opinion", she continued: "I'm not a bully, I'm hot headed and there's a big difference. People need to look up the definition to the word bully and I'm not it.

"My only regrets in the house were that I spent far too long trying »

Loose Women presenter Andrea McLean has become the first celebrity gymnast to leave BBC One's Tumble.

Speaking after the result, Jones teased that the discipline next week will be trampolining. Other remaining stars include Girls Aloud's Sarah Harding, ex-Sugababe Amelle Berrabah, boxer Carl Froch and actor John Partridge.

Steps star Ian 'H' Watkins topped the judges' leaderboard with an impressive 31 points, while Dynasty star Emma Samms »

Gethin Jones tells us 21 things about The 21st Question

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

We love a good quiz show here at Digital Spy, so when Gethin Jones invited us to come down and play his new series The 21st Question, how could we refuse? It's a pretty simple premise - a group of contestants compete but only the one who correctly answers the 21st Question has a chance at going through to win some big money.

When we weren't scowling at our inability to get a question right, we caught up with Gethin to find out 21 more things about him (including his weird celebrity crush!) and the show, which kicks off this afternoon...

1. The concept of the show is very simple - but there are lots of tactics!

"The quiz is very simple. The only way you can win any money is by being on the Power Spot when I ask the 21st question. That's it, that's the premise of the show, and »

The presenter has been on the panel of the daytime show since September 2011, but has struggled to commit to the filming schedule this year. She is currently in training to fly a plane solo around the world for charity.

She is also planning further TV work and writing a number of educational books.

Vorderman told The Mirror that she did not want to remain on the show if she could not fully commit to it, saying: "In the first two years on Loose I did over 100 days a year, but in the last year I have only managed just over 20 days.

"I tried appearing just once a week until Christmas and I just couldn't do it."

She said that she had forced herself to make a decision, saying: "I like to do things properly and it's unfair to commit to something half-heartedly. »

Sharon Osbourne says Simon Cowell wants an 'X Factor' judge who is ''skinny and young'' who he can tell what to do.

4 June 2014 8:38 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Sharon Osbourne has ruled out another return to The X Factor.

The 61-year-old - who made a return to the ITV show for its tenth series last year - said that although she loves the show, she has to put family and Us commitments first.

Asked if she would consider filling the one remaining spot on this year's panel, Osbourne told Loose Women: "No, no, no, you can't go back again. No.

"Love the show, it's become a part of British culture, everybody loves it, you can't help but get pulled into it but no, it's too much."

She added that juggling her commitments in the Us and UK proved too much last year: "I'd lose my job in America because they let me out for one season. I'd wake up in hotel rooms and not know where I was. Also I've got a family so I can't do it. »

Denise Welch hits out at Myleene Klass over Loose Women comments

22 May 2014 1:58 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Denise Welch has hit out at Myleene Klass over comments she made about Loose Women.

Welch - who quit the ITV talk show in October last year following a row with producers over changes to the programme - took to Twitter to say how disappointed she was in Klass, who claimed the show was previously "too ranty and misogynistic" before she joined in January.

Klass had told the Daily Mail: "I love Loose Women. It's nice to be able to articulate and get things out there. But I feel it was getting a bit misogynistic, a bit post-menopausal or pre-menopausal and ranty.

"That's not how women should be represented so it's nice they've refreshed the panel and we can talk about politics, fashion designers and what else is going on in the week."

After reading the comments, Welch tweeted: "Disappointed @KlassMyleene @McGiff. Sadly ratings suggest most viewers don't agree with you. »

Colin Salmon: 'It's hard to get roles in the UK'

21 May 2014 8:45 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Colin Salmon has revealed that he has found it hard to get acting roles in the UK.

The British actor - who has recently appeared in Us shows 24: Live Another Day and Arrow - explained why many UK stars have chosen to find work in America.

He told ITV's Loose Women: "It's been really hard here in Britain for actors and therefore we've had to up our game.

"I think we have incredible voice coaches now because it's all muscle memory. We are trained a different way. It's not like we're imagining it, we know, we're specific. We know the areas."

He continued: "I've worked with Cicely Berry from the Royal Shakespeare Company, the best voice coach in the world, and Paul Robeson, so we have all the backstory.

"You've got the young actors - I'm about to do Musketeers - and the young guys on that, the discipline level is another level. »

Hugh Jackman has admitted that his son isn't impressed by his role in the X-Men movies.

The 45-year-old, who has two adopted children with his wife Deborra-Lee Furness, told Loose Women that he is happy his children have now reached an age where they can watch his films.

"They are on set a lot so they see it being made and they actually quite like it," he explained.

"When my son said, 'That's pretty cool', that was the greatest review ever. He does not think it's cool that I'm Wolverine, but I caught him once saying to a girl, 'My dad's Wolverine'. You know - once!"

Jackman also spoke about how grateful he was that the franchise had such dedicated fans.

He added: "Every day of my life I run into an X-Men fan somewhere and they are very vocal and I kind of dig that because if you're a »

2 May 2014 11:16 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Jamelia has called for the BBC to sack Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson.

The singer-turned-presenter told the audience at ITV's Loose Women today (May 2) that she believes the corporation should "exercise zero tolerance" towards the 54-year-old, after footage emerged allegedly showing him uttering a racist term.

Jeremy Clarkson poll: Should he be fired by the BBC?

"He is very aware of the deep-rooted negative connotations associated with that word and whether you mumble it, whether you say it, it is not on," she explained.

"It is not acceptable and it is deeply offensive to too many people. He has got to go."

The 'Superstar' singer added: "He is in a position of power and influence and there are so many people of many different races who watch his shows and that should not be in your vocabulary, it should not be in your head."

The 33-year-old also told the rest »

Richard E Grant got up close and personal with the Loose Women panellists during his appearance on the show today (March 31).

The actor attempted to guess the perfumes being worn by Jamelia, Linda Robson, Kaye Adams and Nadia Sawalha while promoting the launch of his own fragrance Jack.

However, he only managed to guess Adams's perfume correctly, failing to identify the scents of her co-stars.

He will launch his fragrance - which he has previously described as his "signature in scent" - on Wednesday (April 2).

He told Digital Spy: "I don't think [other stars] make their own. They're not involved. I know what every single part of the process has been, what everything costs, where it's sourced from - I haven't just put my name to something somebody else has come up with. It's my signature in scent."
