The Robot Will See You Now review – it appears even therapists could lose their jobs to AI

Fascinatingly and worryingly, people quickly accept and open up to the AI therapist. Plus, How to Spend It Well at Christmas with Phillip Schofield causes early-onset Ebenezers

Hayley and Ronnie, and their two boys Ben and James, have come to see Jess to talk about some of their family issues. The main concern seems to be mum Hayley’s weight: she’s 5’4” and weighs 133kg (20st 13lb). She won’t go and watch Ben play rugby because she’s worried he will be embarrassed.

Jess gets Hayley to talk her through her diet; what kind of food she eats, how many takeaways they get, etc. Hayley lies about it, Jess tells her she’s lying, the boys giggle. Jess can be pretty direct, brutal even, but she has got the facts and figures on her side to back her up. Jess likes facts and figures.

Watch TV Hosts Lose it Trying to Pronounce Weatherman’s Name

There are times when it doesn’t take much to make people laugh. Unfortunately it does tend to come at the expense of another person a lot of times, but at least in this instance it’s not so much the name they’re making fun of as the reaction to it when it causes Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield to break out in hysterical laughter. You have to admit though, the name of the weatherman they’re trying to pronounce tends to leave itself open for a lot of different reactions. Laughter is just one of them but it’s one of the best

Prince Michael Jackson Reveals That He Has Not Inherited the King of Pop’s Musical Abilities: ‘It’s Embarrassing!’
Prince Michael Jackson is the son of pop royalty, but he probably won’t be cutting a record anytime soon. In his first British interview, the 20-year-old admitted that he has not inherited his famous father Michael‘s trademark song and dance talents.

“I can’t sing, I can’t dance, I can’t do any of that,” he told broadcasters Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby. “I’ve tried it and it’s embarrassing, we can’t even talk about that.”

Instead he’s chosen a job behind the scenes, running his own production company, aptly named King’s Son.

Line Of Duty series 4: creator Jed Mercurio interview

Louisa Mellor May 5, 2017

Major spoilers ahead as we speak to Line Of Duty creator, writer and director Jed Mercurio about Roz Huntley, Acc Hilton and more…

If I were ever to find myself alone in a room with a dead body I’d created in self-defence and pondering my next move, “plead guilty to manslaughter,” Jed Mercurio tells me. “For the minimum three years sentence. If you take the risk of fighting a murder plea with self-defence and you fail, then you will be convicted of murder and that is a mandatory life sentence.” Getting off with self-defence is really, really hard, says Mercurio, really hard. “I did the research.”

James Van Der Beek Has an Awkward 'Dawson's Creek'-Focused Interview

James Van Der Beek did not look too pleased after an uncomfortable Dawson's Creek-focused introduction ahead of his interview with U.K. show This Morning.

Hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby spoke about the various accomplishments Creek alums Katie Holmes, Michelle Williams and Joshua Jackson have had in their careers before saying, "But what happened to the main man himself, Mr. James Van Der Beek?"

"He's here now, and that's what he looks like," said Schofield, as if it were a big reveal.

"I have been on television the last 20 years, just to let you know," responded Van Der Beek,...

James Van Der Beek Gives Awkward Interview

2017-03-31T04:58:34-07:00James Van Der Beek Gives Awkward Interview

If the hosts of ITV’s “This Morning” wanted to make James Van Der Beek feel uncomfortable, they succeeded. On Thursday, after playing a clip from Dawson’s Creek, British co-hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby introduced the actor by listing his former “Creek” co-stars’ impressive accomplishments, before asking, “But what happened to the main man himself, Mr. James Van Der Beek?

Well, he’s here now and that’s what he looks like.” As the screen split between a photo of Van Der Beek back in the day when he played Dawson and a live stream of the actor in the studio, the 40-year-old said, “I have been on television the last 20 years, just wanted to let you know.”

Schofield then admitted that their introduction was the result of their own lazy work, telling the actor,

James Van Der Beek Gets Visibly Annoyed During Awkward Morning Show Interview
James Van Der Beek has been in Hollywood for more than 20 years. While the successful actor is most well-known for his role as teenager Dawson Leery in the hit show Dawson's Creek, he's had so many other amazing roles in the almost 14 years since then. But during his appearance on Britain's This Morning on Thursday, hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby didn't seem to want to focus on his impressive career. While attempting to introduce James on their show, they awkwardly talked about the accomplishments of his former costars, calling Katie Holmes "a leading Hollywood actress" and pointing out Michelle Williams's four Oscar nominations. They then said of James: "But what happened to the main man himself? He's here now and this is what he looks like." The camera cuts to a very irritated-looking James, who tries to emphasize that he too has done a lot since Dawson's Creek.

James Van Der Beek Survives Painfully Awkward TV Interview

James Van Der Beek Survives Painfully Awkward TV Interview
Kudos to James Van Der Beek for keeping it together during an excruciating interview with British morning show This Morning. Co-hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby introduced the actor in a way that made it seem like he hadn't been on TV since Dawson's Creek, launching what went on to be a very uncomfortable live interview. "What happened to the main man himself, Mr James Van Der Beek?" Schofield asked, rhetorically. "He's here now, and that's what he looks like." This Morning displayed a photo of Van Der Beek from more than 20 years ago, and the actor looked less than pleased about it.

Gunge, gophers and Kylie in a box: what happened to Saturday morning kids' TV?

Tiswas, Going Live! and Live & Kicking were bastions of British entertainment in the 70s, 80s and 90s, but these anarchic live shows have since been replaced by dull TV chefs. It’s time to take back Saturday mornings from the bland brigade

Phillip Schofield’s giant swinging conkers. Chris Tarrant’s big wet buckets. Emma Forbes’s sticky-fingered baking. “We don’t do duvets.” Andi Peters’s nu-rave jumpers. Gunge, phone-ins, custard pies and the Phantom Flan Flinger. A small furry sidekick called Gordon with a hand up his arse. Sometimes, describing Saturday morning children’s television feels more like pushing open the door to a particularly niche sex club than a world of family-friendly entertainment.

Mary Berry to Quit as Judge of ‘Great British Bake Off,’ Paul Hollywood to Stay

London — Mary Berry is quitting as a judge on “The Great British Bake Off” out of loyalty to the BBC, which lost the hit series to rival network Channel 4 in a bidding war earlier this month. But fellow judge Paul Hollywood announced that he would stick with the show.

Berry’s departure means that three of the program’s four regular personalities — whose chemistry has been credited with turning it into a ratings juggernaut — will not be moving with”Bake Off” to Channel 4 after it wraps up its run on the BBC this season.

Berry’s decision to follow hosts Sue Perkins and Mel Giedroyc out of the “Bake Off” tent adds to the pressure on Channel 4 to maintain the show’s startling success and to justify the millions of pounds it put up to outbid the BBC. The BBC reportedly offered £15 million ($19.8 million) a year to keep the program, but
