Live Athletics: Diamond League, Rome

7pm, BBC3

Round five of the elite athletics series. All eyes, and cameraphones, will be trained as ever on the loping figure of Usain Bolt who, despite recently recording his worst ever 100m final time – a measly 10.09, though he did win the race – is still the man to beat. Elsewhere, Olympic gold medallist Allyson Felix competes in the 200m, while British hopes include Christine Ohuruogu in the 400m, Shara Proctor in the long jump, and Steven Lewis in the pole vault.

Ultimate Shopper

Keith Lemon: 'I want Kelly Brook, Katie Price both on Celebrity Juice'

Keith Lemon has told Digital Spy that he would love to have Kelly Brook and Katie Price "fight it out" together on Celebrity Juice.

The alter ego of Leigh Francis denied having banned Price from the ITV2 show after she described former team captain Brook "a heffer" in her newspaper column, sparking a feud that is still alive months later.

"I'll stick by my mate Kelly though thick and thin," Lemon told us. "I don't think Katie Price should have said that Kelly is a heffer, because she is, but only when she's not got her make-up on, and I don't think Katie Price has seen Kelly without her make-up on. Only me and Danny Cappuccino have."

He continued: "I'd like to have them both on at the same time so she can either apologise or they can fight it out, that'd be good. There were rumours that I banned

New Brit-Asian film Amar, Akbar and Tony starts shooting in West London

  • Bollyspice
Stars of television and the silver screen are among the cast line-up in a major new feature film set that began shooting in London last week. The ensemble cast, featuring some of the British Asian community’s most recognised celebrities alongside talented newcomers and familiar home-grown talent, will collaborate on the film, which celebrates multiculturalism within the UK.

Amar Akbar & Tony, is an independent production by writer and first-time film director Atul Malhotra, which embodies and celebrates the unique and vibrant landscape of the UK. A comedy drama with a highly original plotline and cleverly developed script, Amar, Akbar & Tony is scheduled for release later this year.

The title alludes to the 1970s Bollywood classic (Amar Akbar and Anthony) and revolves around the strong bond of friendship akin to brotherhood between the three main characters. But that is where the similarities with the Bollywood film ends. Amar, Akbar & Tony is

'Celebrity Juice' return tops 1.5 million for ITV2

'Celebrity Juice' return tops 1.5 million for ITV2
Celebrity Juice's autumn run began with an audience of 1.8 million last night (August 30) including +1, the latest overnight data shows. The Keith Lemon panel show's Olympics-themed eighth series opener appealed to 1.48m (7.9%), and 315k (3%) on ITV2 +1. Despite topping the multichannel ratings by some distance, the show's audience was a tad lower than February's record-breaking winter launch. Lemon La Vida Loca followed with 701k (5.7%) at 10.45pm (+1: 143k/2.3%), after which three more editions of the mockumentary aired back-to-back to lower audiences. Paralympics coverage on Channel 4 scored 2.44m (11.1%) between 7pm and 10.30pm, adding 106k (0.5%) on timeshift. More 4's hour of the Games from 6.30pm had 641k (3.5%). (more)

Keith Lemon: The Film – The Worst Film Of 2012

Rating: 0.5 out of 5 stars

Should have known really. Leigh Francis as Keith Lemon’s output recently has gone a little bit wayward: Celebrity Juice remains a deliriously naughty delight, but Lemon Aid was a waste of time and Lemon La Vida Loca is very hit and miss, but the character is still very funny, and his comedy is very infectious. The opportunity to see him on film always felt like a joke – a silly cash-in on a character that would hopefully parody the sub-genre of such films while offering a few solid gold nuggets of lewd, crude humour – but even the lowest expectations ended up missed entirely by this fetid mess of a film that fails on almost every level.

There’s a minimum of effort, technically and artistically, and the film seems content to trade on the moronic appeal of copious swear words and inappropriate gags – and while that

Edinburgh fringe face-off: Stewart Lee v Nica Burns

The 'spirit of the fringe' is pitted against capitalism as awards director dismisses standup's complaints about commercialisation of Edinburgh comedy

Best of this week's news

Halfway through week one of the fringe, and the big story is – well, pretty much the same as last week's big story. Stewart Lee's broadside against the commercialisation of Edinburgh comedy (see below) set the agenda for the opening days of festival 2012, with Edinburgh comedy award director Nica Burns responding to it in her annual pep talk at the weekend. Burns dismissed Lee's grumble as part of "a bit of competition to create controversy", and set against his claims the argument that free shows are now as important to the fringe as ticketed events. Free events now number more than 800 in the fringe programme, compared with 177 free shows in 2006.

Elsewhere in Edinburgh, the promoter who last week had her charity comedy gig pulled at
