11 August 2015 5:39 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

As he gets ready to hit the big screen with The Bad Education Movie, comedian Jack Whitehall joined us to answer your questions on everything from his comedy heroes to which one of the Labour leadership contenders he would rather share a bath with

1.37pm BST

Thank you for all the questions. I'll rephrase that: thank you for some of the questions.

1.35pm BST

opus147 asks:

What would you change about the education system? The real one, I mean, not the one in Bad Education (unless they are the same).

Undo everything Michael Gove did. Starting by allowing American literature to be on the syllabus.

1.33pm BST

UtilityForward asks:

What’s your favourite biscuit?

Well, you want me to say "soggy", but I'm going to say Hobnob. A very absorbant one.

Simren asks:

Any advice for A-level results day?

Make sure you get your results before you do anything stupid, »

Noel Edmonds: "The biggest problem we have is not Ebola, it's not Aids, it's electro smog"

4 August 2015 4:34 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Noel Edmonds thinks the biggest problem the world is facing currently isn't terrorism, disease or climate change - but "electro smog".

The Deal Or No Deal TV presenter says that's the constant buzz of phone signals, WiFI and electricity which is causing concern.

Speaking to The Mirror, Edmonds said: "We're surrounded by electro mist, fog and smog. We're covering ourselves in the wrong sorts of electro-magnetism.

"These idiot politicians who talk about climate change, for goodness sake, do they really think little us can do anything about it? No, of course not."

He added: "The biggest problem we have is not Ebola, it's not Aids, it's electro smog.

"The WiFi and all of the systems that we are introducing into our lives are destroying our own natural electro-magnetic fields. All you are is energy, remember that."

Edmonds has even spent £2,000 on a Nasa-developed device he describes as "a yoga mat, »

Reels on Reels: Is Hollywood Taking Over the Slot Machine Market?

29 July 2015 9:03 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

2012: a British man, playing an online slot machine for 30p on his laptop, is suddenly greeted by the sight of Christian Bale’s Batman and Heath Ledger’s Joker taking over his screen. Not crude 8-bit interpretations, but full HD actual animation from the Chris Nolan blockbuster – complete with voiceovers.

The player is urged to “take a side” and spin a virtual Wheel of Fortune. The prize at stake: almost £6 million.

The wheel spins, accompanied by the Joker’s maniacal “all it needs is a little push”, and the wheel comes to a random stop on the Mega Jackpot symbol. Hans Zimmer’s score has never seemed so dramatic. The jackpot is won and the player – known only as ‘John’ – goes away a multi-millionaire.

No, not a bizarre DVD extra on The Dark Knight Blu-Ray but a bonus round in Microgaming’s The Dark Knight online slot.

The prize won that day? »

Tfi Friday – it's your live blog, it's your live blog, as it happened

12 June 2015 2:54 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Chris Evans returned for a one-off special with guests including Jeremy Clarkson, Blur and Liam Gallagher

Tfi: a nod to 90s nostalgiaWhat happened to Friday night TV?

10.54pm BST

Lessons learned? Never have Lewis Hamilton on your television programme as the main guest. Never pretend that the 1990s were better than they were. And never go back. Never, ever go back.

Anyway, thanks for joining me. If you want to follow me on Twitter, I’m @StuHeritage. If you don’t, I’ll try not to lose any sleep. Ok, bye.

10.53pm BST

And that’s it. That’s really it. More clips of when the show used to be good – all of which we’ve seen elsewhere during this episode, strangely – and we’re done.

10.52pm BST

“Can you remember when Tfi Friday started?”

“In the 1990s? No.”

13 May 2015 8:23 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Big Brother housemate Jack McDermott has admitted that he is hoping his time on the show will help him deal with a gambling problem.

Jack - who won three immunity passes in last night's twist - told his fellow housemates Cristian Mjc and Nick Henderson that he thinks his time in the house will be good for him.

Speaking about his gambling problem, he said: "It's very difficult and has taken a lot out of me, but being in here takes me away from it."

Cristian asked Jack if he wins a lot when he gambles, but the Plymouth Argyle supporter - who has previously been on Deal or No Deal - replied: "No, no, I don't. But this is a chance for me to sort my life out."

Nick was impressed with Jack's comments, describing him as "very brave" for opening up about his problem.

Monday’s best TV

19 April 2015 10:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Alex Polizzi observes Chefs On Trial, the kitchen heats up for the last five in MasterChef: The Finals and Vanessa Engle’s ventures Inside Harley Street. Plus: Raised By Wolves bows out and Christopher Eccleston’s ex-cop broods in the Lake District in Safe House

In this new gameshow, seven members of the public – this week from Sheffield – are approached in the street and given one of seven golden envelopes. In said envelopes are prizes ranging from a paltry one penny to a princely £10,000. Without knowing the amount they have, the punters are then offered the chance to swap their envelope for a mystery silver box, which may contain a better or worse prize. It’s a bit like Deal Or No Deal, but without the mysticism, or any other redeeming features for that matter. Ben Arnold

YouTube Prankster Roman Atwood Covers Howie Mandel’s House In Toilet Paper

17 March 2015 10:05 AM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

If he wants to continue amusing his viewers, YouTube star Roman Atwood must continue to come up with novel prank ideas. With his latest video, he has done just that: Atwood traveled to TV host Howie Mandel's house and covered it with more than 4,000 rolls of toilet paper.

In the video, Atwood--who has more than 5.7 million subscribers on YouTube--describes Mandel as his "friend." The prankster's relationship with the Deal or No Deal host runs through Alex Mandel, Howie's son and a YouTube mixologist who has collaborated with Atwood in the past. With the help of Alex and Howie's wife Terry, Atwood drove a moving truck up to Mandel's house and proceeded to unleash Tp hell upon the ritzy mansion.

The glorious prank becomes ever greater when combined with Mandel's personality. The comedian and actor has a well-known fear of germs, so as you can imagine, unbridled mess »

Noel Edmonds slams 'incompetent' BBC over Jeremy Clarkson suspension

12 March 2015 7:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Noel Edmonds has criticised the BBC's decision to pull Top Gear from its schedules.

The Deal or No Deal host said that the broadcaster has shown "sheer incompetence" in its response to Jeremy Clarkson's suspension.

The presenter has been temporarily dropped by the BBC after aiming a punch at a producer, resulting in upcoming episodes of Top Gear being delayed indefinitely.

He told The Guardian: "You have to laugh at the sheer incompetence of BBC management.

"Here is a hugely popular production, arguably one of the BBC's most valuable productions, which is apparently being pulled from the schedule because of one of the presenters [being] involved in an incident.

"Top Gear has multiple hosts and it is not as if the whole show is live and the content is created on a single day. So why not just re-edit what they have got and let the other two presenters continue? »

Deal or No Deal host says Top Gear presenter needed more support from management, adding that ‘the viewer is the casualty’

Former BBC presenter Noel Edmonds has criticised the corporation’s top executives for displaying “sheer incompetence” in managing Jeremy Clarkson.

The Deal or No Deal and former Top Gear host, who acrimoniously left the BBC after a 30-year career following a falling-out with management in the late 1990s, said the corporation needs to shoulder the lion’s share of the blame.

The identity of The Banker on Deal or No Deal has been confirmed.

The mysterious man speaking to presenter Noel Edmonds on the end of the telephone has been revealed as the Channel 4 gameshow's producer Glenn Hugill.

Asked about how he came up with new quiz ideas - such as BBC Two's Two Tribes - Osman said that the new show "was an idea that Glenn Hugill - the Banker on Deal or No Deal - and I had been thinking about for a long time".

He added: "We kept coming back to it and thought, 'Hang on, this really works, let's pitch it'."

Blue Peter: behind the scenes

5 February 2015 12:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

It’s now digital only, the presenters are fans of Owen Jones and the garden is open to the public, but the grande dame of children’s TV still glides serenely on

Have you seen Blue Peter recently? Possibly not. It’s now tucked away on the Cbbc channel, meaning that anyone above the age of 15 is unlikely to chance upon it when “working from home” and flicking up and down their favourite channels in search of post-Deal Or No Deal distraction. That shitting elephant in the room excepted, Blue Peter is still going strong after nearly 60 years, and is still pretty great.

When I step into the telly behemoth’s purpose-built Salford studio, rehearsals for the live show are under way. Along with a pre-recorded appearance from the cast of the Little Shop Of Horrors musical, which ends with presenter Barney Harwood being eaten by a plant, there’s a quiz about germs, »

Deal Or No Deal to feature couples for the first time

2 February 2015 3:40 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Deal Or No Deal is to feature couples as contestants for the first time.

A series of Double Trouble specials will air on Channel 4 next week, which will see pairs take on the Banker together.

Noel Edmonds will welcome 11 couples to the Dream Factory, although the fact that there are only five chances to play means not everyone will get to take a place at the Pound Table.

The Double Trouble episodes also include the Banker's Break Up quiz, in which the couples must answer eight or more questions about each other correctly in order to win a holiday.

If the pair get three or more questions wrong The Banker will split them, sending one person to the isolation room where they cannot help their partner make any further decisions.

Edmonds said: "I've always found players' differing approaches to Deal Or No Deal fascinating and I'm intrigued to see »
