Fearne Cotton webchat – your questions answered on Keith Lemon, Teletubbies and the future of radio

The presenter and writer spilled the beans on anger management, meeting the Royals and what she really thought of the ropiest Live Lounge performances

2.11pm BST

Thank you so much for the really interesting, thought-provoking and cool questions. I hope you all have a cracking Thursday afternoon in the pissing rain. And good luck all kids who started school this week. Bye!

2.06pm BST

PimpmasterFlex 3d asks:

Do you think Strictly is losing its mojo?

No. It's terribly sad that Bruce died and there will be a different feel to it this series because he passed away. But my god I think Claudia and Tess are the most brilliant duo. I think they're great together. This is the great thing about TV - there's room for moving dramas and move for simply feelgood entertainment where there's no agenda and it's just people wearing beautiful outfits and doing sometimes beautiful dance routines.

Behind the scenes with the Sudanese stars of 'The Good Lie'

Telluride: From ‘Birdman’ to ‘Mommy,’ Festival Soars Above the Fray

Telluride: From ‘Birdman’ to ‘Mommy,’ Festival Soars Above the Fray
Justin Chang: How was your Telluride, Scott? Mine was terrific — though I should note that I don’t really have a frame of reference, being a first-timer at this annual mountainside mecca for movie lovers. Still, I’m happy to report that just about everything I’ve heard is true: the unbeatable backdrop, the near-unbeatable films, above all that wondrous sense that the usual barriers separating filmmakers, journalists and audiences have magically melted away for one long weekend, uniting us all in one collective cinephile bliss-out. This is a festival where you’re as likely to pass Alexander Payne, Mike Leigh or the Dardenne brothers in the street as you are to make it into your next screening, and where a Megan Ellison sighting can send a momentary hush through a screening queue.

Philadelphia Gears Up To Host Jay-z's Two Day Festival

Philadelphia Gears Up To Host Jay-z's Two Day Festival
Philadelphia — The city where America was made is gearing up for rapper Jay-z's "Made In America" music festival, which officials estimate will attract 100,000 fans to Philadelphia over Labor Day weekend.

Construction of stages and tents began this week at the somewhat unusual venue, a tree-lined boulevard in the heart of downtown. It's the first show on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway to require paid admission. Rock stalwarts Pearl Jam are co-headliners of the two-day event.

Officials said there should be no problem handling the crowd considering the city's long tradition of staging much larger concerts at the same location.

"Every year, we have detailed plans for public safety, street access, trash removal and we successfully accommodate 400,000 to 500,000 visitors on the 4th of July," Mayor Michael Nutter said in a statement.

For those who can't make the festival on either Sept. 1 or 2, don't worry – filmmaker Ron Howard will be directing a movie about the show.

Exclusive: Poster For 'Robot & Frank' Starring Frank Langella, Liv Tyler & James Marsden

"Robot & Frank," the feature film debut of commercial director Jake Schreier, premiered in January at the Sundance Film Festival where it earned some solid buzz, became a hot acquistion title and was the co-winner of the Alfred P. Sloan Feature Film Prize.

Well, it will add to the success it earned in Park City as the film continues on the festival circuit, hitting Los Angeles this weekend in advance of its release later this summer. Starring Frank Langella, James Marsden, Liv Tyler and Susan Sarandon, the unusual and unique tale is set in the near future and follows Frank, a retired cat burglar with two grown kids who are concerned he can no longer live alone. They are tempted to place him in a nursing home until Frank's son chooses a different option: against the old man's wishes, he buys Frank a walking, talking humanoid robot programmed to improve his physical and mental health.

America will be the first audience for the Queen of Pop in over two years when Madonna takes the stage at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis as the halftime act for Super Bowl Xlvi. If her history with MTV is any indicator, she's likely to blow the roof off the joint.

Madonna is known for her over-the-top live performances and will most assuredly have her game face on with the world watching this Sunday. Not that she ever slacks in the live performance department: Her most recent tour, Sticky & Sweet, was the highest-grossing tour ever by a solo artist and the fourth-biggest tour of all time. From Live Aid in 1985 to Live 8, 20 years later, she's headlined some

Madonna's Super Bowl Setlist: A Live Performance Roundup

The nearer Queen of Pop Madonna's Super Bowl halftime show gets, the more excited we become. After getting an early look at her stage (above), (reported!) setlist and confirmation that M.I.A. and Nicki Minaj will appear alongside the pop icon, we're sure this is going to be one of the best halftime shows ever!

So, as we prepare for the big day, we thought it might be fun to take a walk down memory lane with a look at some of the best live performances of the tunes she will bring to life for the biggest televised event of the year.

While the setlist has not been officially revealed, it leaked in December and if photos of her stage are any indication, the leak looks solid and she'll almost certainly be striking a pose on Sunday, so let's start there.

Madonna's Super Bowl Setlist Revealed?

It's been a busy few weeks in Madonna land.

We finally got confirmation that the Queen of Pop would indeed be headlining the halftime show at Super Bowl Xlvi. Soon thereafter, a series of tweets from Nicki Minaj and M.I.A. revealed that filming for the video to "Gimme All Your Luvin," the first single from her forthcoming, still-untitled 12th studio album, was underway. And this week, we found out that said album would be released by Interscope as part of a three-album deal, making her label-mates with Lady Gaga and Eminem.

"We couldn't be happier to work with [Interscope's] Jimmy Iovine, [Chairman & CEO, Universal Music Group] Lucian Grainge and the entire Interscope team," Madonna's longtime manager Guy Oseary said in a statement. "We anticipate a very bright future at our new home."

Now comes word that Her Madgesty has started rehearsals for her Super Bowl performance and the alleged setlist has been leaked to fan site Madonnarama.
