13 September 2014 10:07 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Jeremy Clarkson has addressed rumours that he will no longer be involved with the BBC's Top Gear.

Writing in Top Gear magazine, the controversial presenter spoke out about his future on the motoring show.

"There has been a lot of stuff in the newspapers recently about the future of Top Gear.

"Some seem to think there isn't one. But I can assure you, there is. There are also those who think I won't be part of it.

"Well, sorry, but I am. Unless I am eaten by a pack of wild dogs before the next series starts early next year."

The One Show presenter Chris Evans recently denied reports that he would be presenting Top Gear, after it was alleged that Clarkson used racist language on the show.

When is Strictly Come Dancing back? All we know about the 2014 series

26 August 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Ready to dazzle us again this autumn, series 12 of Strictly Come Dancing is on the horizon.

15 more celebrities are preparing to strap on some sequins and slap on the fake tan, all in the name of Saturday night entertainment.

Here's everything we know so far about the biggest British TV show's return:

1. When is it back?

The BBC are always particularly coy and prickly about confirming the start dates of TV shows, but a simple look at the official site for audience tickets reveals that the first two shows of the series will air on Friday, September 26 and Saturday, September 27.

The Launch Show will air, as usual, three weeks earlier. Due to some funny little show called Tumble, it looks like the Launch Show will air on a Sunday this year, on September 7.

That is the show where the celebrities meet the partners for the first time, and it's also »

Jenna Coleman coy on Doctor Who exit talk: 'I like the quitting rumours'

22 August 2014 4:35 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Jenna Coleman remained very coy about rumours that she's exiting Doctor Who during an appearance on This Morning today (August 22).

The actress, who plays the Doctor's companion Clara Oswald, said that she wouldn't confirm her departure because she believed that the uncertainty was benefiting the show.

"The truth is, I don't want to tell you the truth," Coleman said.

"I quite like these rumours. People don't have any idea [if I'm staying or going]. I think people can watch the show, not knowing whether I am [going] or not, and I think that's exciting."

Speaking about working with new Doctor Peter Capaldi, Coleman claimed that her new leading man had a "glimpse of naughtiness", and that the pair had been laughing continually since the third day on set.

During an appearance on The One Show on Thursday (August 21), Capaldi played down rumours about his co-star departing the sci-fi show.

Peter Capaldi dismisses Jenna Coleman Doctor Who exit "rumours"

21 August 2014 3:12 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Peter Capaldi has dismissed reports that Jenna Coleman is leaving Doctor Who.

The actor, who makes his debut as The Doctor this weekend, told The One Show that there is no truth to the claims, which had suggested a Christmas exit for Coleman's Clara Oswald.

"I'm not looking for a new assistant," he told presenters Matt Baker and Alex Jones when questioned. "I don't know where these rumours have started. I've read she may be leaving at Christmas, but I don't even know if she'll get to Christmas, you'll have to watch it and see what happens."

Capaldi praised his "absolutely fabulous" co-star, adding: "She's been called upon to do things that I don't think any other companion has had to do, to show a kind of emotional range and I think she's done it absolutely brilliantly."

Both stars have returned to the UK after completing an extensive Doctor Who promotion tour across the world, »

Alex Jones: 'More female BBC presenters is step in right direction'

Alex Jones has said that she feels the BBC is leading the way in increasing the exposure of female television presenters.

The One Show host, who will soon be the sole presenter of new Saturday night show Tumble, told Fabulous magazine that her new job is another step in the right direction for the industry.

It follows the news that Strictly Come Dancing will now be presented by Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman, following the departure of Sir Bruce Forsyth.

"I definitely feel like I'm doing this for the girls," she said. "Telly in the past [could] be seen as being quite a misogynistic place, but the BBC have really pulled it out of the bag.

"Giving such exposure to three girls in its peak schedule is a big step in the right direction."

2014 Emmy Award Nominations Announced

10 July 2014 7:21 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The 2014 Emmy Award nominations were announced today and led by HBO's "Game of Thrones" with 19 total nominations. New show "Fargo" scored 18, followed by "American Horror Story", "Breaking Bad", The Normal Heart and not too far down the line "True Detective" with 12. The one show I love and continue to watch, "Hannibal" received zero nominations, but then again, I have never paid too much attention to the Emmys, primarily because people have to nominate themselves, something I've never understood. "Game of Thrones" 19 "Fargo" 18 "American Horror Story: Coven" 17 "Breaking Bad" 16 "The Normal Heart" 16 "Saturday Night Live" 14 "House of Cards" 13 "Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey" 12 "Downton Abbey" 12 "Orange Is the New Black" 12 From a network perspective, leading the pack was HBO, coming in just one nomination shy of a 100 and it wasn't even a close race with CBS coming in second with 47. HBO 99 CBS 47 NBC 46 FX Networks 45 ABC 37 The top shelf nominations are listed »
