Staff plant stalks of wheat outside New Broadcasting House so that Chris Evans can recreate Alan Turner’s antics

Monkey was baffled to see a group of BBC staff carefully planting stems of wheat into boards outside New Broadcasting House. The individual stalks were being patiently stuck into thin foam. Was it a scene from W1A? No, turns out it’s another ripple from the Poldark effect. Chris Evans apparently wants to try his hand at Aidan Turner-style scything on The One Show.

Paul Bettany Calls Avengers’ Vision Supremely Powerful, Yet Naïve

24 April 2015 12:07 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Paul Bettany's Vision, at first glance, is going to look like a deer-in-the-headlights badass. "The Vision was fun, I loved playing him. You get to see him born on screen," he said when interviewed on The One Show this week. "He's supremely powerful, and omnipotent, and yet totally naïve in experiencing the world as it comes, and wondering what his purpose is in the world and whether he's going to be a force for good or evil." He also shared a clip with the BBC show, finally giving us a better idea of what his synthezoid character will be like in action. In an interview with Yahoo UK, Bettany added that the Vision will return for future Marvel movies — though a solo film seems unlikely ... for now. »

After keeping Paul Bettany’s Vision top secret for quite some time, Marvel isn’t holding back anymore. Not only do we have that detailed look at him on the EW cover and in his own character poster, but now there’s an Avengers: Age of Ultron clip featuring Vision in action as well. While appearing on BBC One’s The One Show, Bettany discussed the Avengers fan frenzy at last year’s San Diego Comic-Con, unveiled the scene during which his character is born in Avengers: Age of Ultron, and also confirmed that there is a connection between Jarvis and Vision: “The flip side of that bad guy, Ultron, is Vision. They’re sort of two sides of the same coin, really. There is a link between Jarvis, who I used to play and still play in this movie, and the Vision, but I’m not allowed to say what it is. »

Jeremy Clarkson: A list of people offended by the Top Gear star

10 March 2015 11:20 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Jeremy Clarkson has been suspended by the BBC today after a "fracas" with a producer - leaving everyone enjoying the resurgence of the word "fracas" (except, probably, Jeremy and the unidentified producer).

But the whole brouhaha got us thinking about everyone (and everything) else Jeremy Clarkson has offended over the years. Here is a list of just some of them - but we won't claim it's definitive...

1. A parish council (and its tree).

Never particularly one for nature, Jeremy Clarkson barrelled a Toyota Hilux into a 30-year-old horse chestnut tree to test how strong the car was (the villagers thought it had been an accident - until they saw the episode of Top Gear in question). The BBC ended up paying £250 in compensation to a parish council in Somerset to make up for the damage.

2. Gay people.

Not only did Jeremy once use the phrase "ginger beer" in a derogatory »

10 March 2015 8:24 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Dermot O'Leary has admitted that he was drunk when he agreed to take part in a 24-hour dance for Comic Relief.

Speaking to Phillip Schofield and Amanda Holden on This Morning, the presenter said that he has recruited the choreographers from The X Factor to help him prepare for the challenge.

On how the 24-hour dance came about, he said: "When you're happily married, this is how drunken texting goes, so rather than text someone else you just go, 'I'm going to dance for 24 hours, I'm going to text Comic Relief right now!'

"I've got about 12 set pieces which I've learnt through the guys on The X Factor - they've helped me out choreography wise. Caroline Flack is going to come down and do a turn with me as well."

The 41-year-old also showed off some of his moves at the end of the show alongside Denise Robertson, Sharon Marshall and Amanda Holden. »
