Richard E Grant sniffs the Loose Women while promoting perfume

31 March 2014 10:20 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

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."

"I've been obsessed with smelling everything since I can remember. I tried to make »

Lisa Maxwell has quit 'Loose Women'. The 50-year-old presenter, who has featured as a regular on the lunchtime show since 2008, is contracted until July, but she admits she won't be making an appearance on the programme tomorrow (20.03.14) because she hates the new format.

Waterloo Road's Angela Griffin joins cast of ITV's Lewis as new DS

18 March 2014 4:31 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Angela Griffin has joined the cast of ITV's Lewis.

The Loose Women star and former Waterloo Road actress confirmed that she had joined the eighth series of the detective drama as a DS on Twitter yesterday (March 17).

Taking to the social networking site, Griffin wrote: "First day of filming tomorrow on my new job... Which I can now tell you is on Lewis for @ITV. I'm playing the new DS. Can't wait!! Chuffed."

Last month, it was confirmed that the drama, starring Kevin Whately and Laurence Fox as Lewis and Hathaway, would be returning for six more hour-long episodes.

The new series will see a retired Lewis returning to active duty and re-teaming with his old partner Hathaway - now promoted to Inspector.

Fox had previously claimed that the seventh series of Lewis - which aired in January and February 2013 - would be the show's last. »

Barack Obama: the Cool Dad president

12 March 2014 6:40 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Barack Obama has guested on Zach Galifianakis's weirdo talk show Between Two Ferns, a clear play for a trendy young voter base – and it's not the first time he has targeted a demographic so cannily

Barack Obama became the latest celebrity to appear on Zach Galifianakis's occasional talkshow Between Two Ferns, and it's a pretty far-out political appearance by any standards.

As ever, Galifianakis plays a ruddy-faced, quietly boiling version of himself, prodding his guest's most obvious pressure points with self-hating irritation at the whole chatshow charade. It fits into the outsider online comedy realm of Tim and Eric, with whom he memorably made the masterclasses in deadpan surrealism A Vodka Movie and Just 3 Boyz – and as such it's a very odd place to find the commander-in-chief.

This is Cool Dad Obama, the guy who doesn't quite get pop culture but whose game attempts and charisma mean we fawn over him anyway. »

Dancing on Ice star Suzanne Shaw eyes up Loose Women role

23 February 2014 4:29 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Suzanne Shaw is reportedly in talks to join ITV's Loose Women.

The Dancing on Ice star said that "bitching sessions" with her former Hear'Say bandmate Myleene Klass - who joined the panel of the daytime show at the beginning of the year - have prepared her for the role.

She told The Mirror: "We often get on the phone and our bitching sessions are basically an episode of Loose Women."

"Myleene has had a hell of a lot of changes in her life but we are both at a point where we are not bitter, we are not angry but we are now very much changed women."

Shaw added that her life experiences mean that she has got what it takes to appear on the chat show.

"I have been a single mum, married and divorced, so I have ticked all the boxes," she said. "I feel so much older and wiser now. »

ITV's 'puffer fish' strategy is both an offensive and defensive move

18 February 2014 10:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Launches of ITV Encore and ITVBe are aimed at reaching new audiences and protecting its core TV advertising business

ITV's first channel launches for nearly a decade have been attributed to a "puffer fish" strategy – protecting its core TV advertising business against expansion by rivals, including the BBC.

ITV Encore, a pay-tv channel launching in the summer and exclusive to Sky subscribers for an undisclosed period, and free-to-air ITVBe – launching in late 2014 and the new home of The Only Way is Essex – will be the broadcaster's first new channels since CiTV in 2006, at least partly because of the previously parlous state of its finances.

ITV has been galvanised into action partly by rivals' channel launches.

While much of ITV's commercial resurgence in the past couple of years has focused on the revitalisation of production business ITV Studios, the importance to the broadcaster's livelihood in selling TV ads cannot be overstated. »

During an appearance on ITV's Loose Women, Klass dismissed her marriage as an "expensive lesson", the Mirror reported.

She told host Kaye Adams that she doesn't regret much in life, but if she had one regret, it would be not signing a prenuptial agreement with Quinn. (Ani) »

Coleen Nolan hates watching her sister Linda on 'Celebrity Big Brother'. The TV host claims seeing her sibling's antics on the Channel 5 reality show is excruciating because she feels so stressed about how she is coming across in the house, especially in light of her recent squabbles with comedian Jim Davidson. She moaned on ITV chat show 'Loose Women' today (20.01.14): ''I just want it to end. I would rather be in there than watching, because when you're in there you're unaware of everything in the outside world. When you're at home watching it, it's awful. I can't stand it but »

5 January 2014 8:26 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Rav Wilding is said to be seriously ill after suffering an injury while training for the current series of Splash!.

The TV star was forced to pull out of Tom Daley's diving show, which returned to ITV last night (January 4), after sustaining a hamstring avulsion in December.

Wilding underwent surgery on his leg and was thought to be making a good recovery until he was rushed to hospital on New Year's Eve after complaining of chest pains, reports The Mirror.

After initially being discharged and sent home, the presenter returned to A&E the following day, where it was discovered that he was suffering from a blood clot on his lung caused by post-surgery complications.

Wilding is said to be seriously ill, with his rep confirming last night: "He is in a really bad way right now."

Yesterday (January 4), the 36-year-old's fiancée, Loose Women producer Jill Morgan, confirmed that he is recovering at home. »
