According to the press release we’ve just received, the qudience will also get the chance to purchase tickets for a one to one photo opportunity and a very select and private meet and greet session. Arnie will also take part in a black tie dinner event at The Grand Pavillion, Leeds.

“For once I won’t have a publicist saying, ‘Don’t ask him about his private life, don’t ask him how much money he makes, how much is in the bank,’ all that kind of stuff,” he said of the UK dates. “England really was the country that gave me the biggest break in my career. I »

5 reasons we really need Chris Evans to bring back Tfi Friday

28 August 2014 10:42 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

You couldn't get much more '90s than Tfi Friday. Even if you watched an episode of Friends while wearing a fisherman's hat with Shed Seven playing 'Chasing Rainbows' at the same time in your living room, it still wouldn't be as '90s as Chris Evans stood at a bar, shouting "Wiiiiiilll" in between bursts of 'The Riverboat Song'.

So when Chris Evans revealed over the Bank Holiday that Channel 4 had approached him to revive the show to mark its 20th anniversary next year (it isn't actually 20 until 2016, but let's not quibble over small details), there were understandably a few groans from people who thought the rowdy entertainment show should be left in the decade of Cool Britannia, Hooch and Kula Shaker.

But we disagree, for the five following reasons:

1. Tfi was live. Tfi was unpredictable.

Well, it was normally live. It was until Shaun Ryder »

Justin Timberlake, Ryan Gosling and More Celebs Who Have Been Friends Since They Were Kids

3 August 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

If you're a Hollywood star, your childhood friends usually have a limited number of roles available to play. They can be a loyal sidekick, your crew's comical mascot, or maybe the personal assistant who will eventually take you down in a bloodless celebrity coup. But for a lucky few stars, the people they grew up with became celebrities themselves, with their own fans, their own love interests and their own trending topics. It must be a welcome surprise. After all, it's lonely at the top, but it's a little less lonely when your childhood friends are there, too. In honor »

31 July 2014 10:15 AM, PDT | Virgin Media - TV | See recent Virgin Media - TV news »

Jonathan Ross won't work in the Us. The 53-year-old talk show host has admitted he isn't ready to take 'The Jonathan Ross Show' across the pond as he doesn't feel he can compete with popular presenters Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel, who also front their own late night talk shows. Speaking at the Cinemoi and Fashion Film Network's annual international awards in Los Angeles, he said: ''The No. 1 guy at the moment is Jimmy Fallon. You wouldn't want to come out here and take on Jimmy. You're never going to be up there with him. ''And Jimmy Kimmel is doing great »

The best of Tom Hanks: 9 great moments from Big to dancing for Bieber

9 July 2014 7:35 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Not only is Tom Hanks one of Hollywood's greatest actors, he's also a thoroughly nice chap to boot. The two-time Oscar winner has a few interesting hobbies, too, including collecting vintage typewriters and supporting Aston Villa.

Today marks Tom's 58th birthday, so to mark the occasion Digital Spy has compiled a selection of his best bits from movies and beyond...

1. Captain Phillips showed he's still at the top of his game...

Despite being a big-screen presence for more than 30 years, Tom still knows how to deliver a barnstorming leading man performance. The mid-'90s saw him on a hot streak that resulted in back-to-back Oscars for Philadelphia and Forrest Gump, but last year's Captain Phillips - in which he played a man caught up in a traumatising freighter hijack - saw him play a key part in one of the most emotional film endings in recent memory.

2. Big in the '80s. »

Jonathan Ross praises polite Beckham kids

Jonathan Ross was shocked at how polite David and Victoria Beckham's children are. 'The Jonathan Ross Show' host has interviewed the former soccer star on numerous occasions but admits he was surprised by how well-mannered his children - Brooklyn, 15, Romeo, 12, Cruz, nine, and two-year-old Harper - were when he met them and their fashion designer mother at an event. Quizzed whether he felt sorry for them having to cope with their parents' fame, he said: ''No, I don't, because Victoria and David are such cool people and such good parents. I met them out years ago with their kids and »

Jonathan Ross: 'Shake-up will keep chat show fresh'

11 May 2014 2:28 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Jonathan Ross believes his chat show's revamp will overturn disappointing ratings.

The previous series of The Jonathan Ross Show saw viewing figures drop below 3 million, with the March 8 finale being watched by 2.7 million.

However, Ross stated that the programme will come back stronger, teasing an upcoming "shake-up" for the next series.

"We'll be shaking up the format of the show in October - that will be the first big shake-up in a while," he told The Sun. "We do it every six years to keep the show fresh.

"So expect a few new surprises - and we're still striving to get top guests. It will be a shorter run this time, so I'll get a little time to rest."

He added: "I'm like a vampire. I keep coming back."

Ross previously told Digital Spy that he was "very happy" at ITV.

Britain needs a talkshow host as strong as Jimmy Fallon!

4 May 2014 10:08 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Rather than Commenting on the Critics, this week it’s a Comment on Television…

This morning, scrolling through the articles on a Facebook feed, I am recommended a clip from The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. This time, it is Kevin Spacey as part of a barbershop quartet. Indeed, Fallon himself is amongst the singers and, not only is it hilarious as they perform Jason Derulo’s ‘Talk Dirty’ in vocal harmony but this is also thought-through, viral entertainment. Jimmy Fallon’s YouTube feed has a wealth of high-ranking stars performing the most comedic sketches. Recently, Jonah Hill, Justin Timberlake and Fallon turned Twitter into a literal conversation, hashtags included, to become a hypnotic and endlessly repeatable (“hashtag addictive”) clip. It also proves how skilled Fallon himself is. He holds his own against the highest ranking musicians and actors.

In the UK, we have quite a few talk-show hosts. The »

17 April 2014 1:50 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The CW is joining the comedy and magic club this summer.

The net, which throughout the year typically airs nine drama series as part of its 10-hour schedule, is experimenting with a pair of new half-hour comedies, “Backpackers” (originally a digital series) and “Seed,” as well as magic series “Penn & Teller: Fool Us” and “Masters of Illusion,” as part of its summer lineup.

CW kicks off its summer June 2 with improv comedy “Whose Line Is It Anyway” on a new night; each week, an original episode will be followed by a repeat. Original episodes of sophomore drama “Beauty and the Beast” will air from 9 to 10.

Reality docuseries “Famous in 12″ bows the next night, airing from 8 to 9. It’s an unscripted series/social experiment that will film one fame-seeking family around the clock for 12 weeks straight.  The family will be guided by the TMZ machine, which will create a series of opportunities for them. »

5 April 2014 6:20 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

It seems Russell Brand may be more than just the quintessential funny man. The actor and comedian, 38, has been involved with British socialite Jemima Khan, and she is apparently quite happy with other, um, areas of their relationship. With Brand, Khan is "having a sexual awakening," a source tells People of the 40-year-old mother of two, whose ex is cricket champ-turned-politician Imran Khan. "She's having a lot of fun and she's loving their relationship." Brand, whose divorce from pop star Katy Perry was settled in February 2012, also seems smitten with his new love.

Great British Bake Off host Sue Perkins has revealed that she originally turned down the job of presenting the BBC reality show.

Speaking on the Jonathan Ross show, Perkins confessed that she was the "luckiest person alive" to have changed her mind.

"They said, 'Would you do it?' and I said, 'No, it's about cakes, don't be silly'," she tells Ross.

Perkins also reveals some amusing secrets about life behind the scenes on the bakery show, which includes the team playing a game with a plastic baguette.

"Paul [Hollywood] in particular likes to take a running jump and thwack me so hard that my teeth knock together," she says.

"I got him [Hollywood]. He bent over to receive a cob and I connected intensely with big John and the twins. So that's what we do. It's like a playground."

6 March 2014 10:59 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Sex and the City star Kristin Davis has revealed that she would be willing to do a third big screen instalment of the hit franchise.

Speaking on This Morning yesterday (March 6), the 49-year-old said that she felt the story remains "unfinished".

The actress - who is due to appear in the West End adaptation of Fatal Attraction - said it was always a "big struggle" for four women over 40 to lead the franchise.

"Would I do another? Of course! We'd be thrilled if there was another," the actress explained. "I think in our hearts - actually I shouldn't speak for all of us - but I feel like it's unfinished. I feel that way, and I don't know if I would feel that way if the fans weren't supportive.

"But maybe because everyone talks to me every day about it, it still feels so relevant in some way... so it feels unfinished a little bit. »
