‘A Landscape of Lies’ Review

Stars: Andrea McLean, Danny Midwinter, Andre Nightingale, Philip Brodie, Victoria Hopkins, Marc Bannerman, Anna Passey | Written and Directed by Paul Knight

Another grand addition to the traditional “Brit Flick” stable, featuring murder, intrigue, deception, drama and a twist-y turn-y plot that will leave you wondering “Who can you trust when the truth is buried in A Landscape of Lies” In a sea of gritty Brit flicks, half the battle can often be finding one that first of all grabs your attention but once they have it they can keep it? A Landscape of Lies, on paper, sounds right up my Sesame (Street, bit of rhyming for you there). It’s British, it’s fairly low budget and the cast is a veritable smorgasbord of “Hey, that’s him from that other movie I liked” or “Oh crap, its her… nice”.

The Crystal Maze 2017 episode 4 review

Louisa Mellor Jul 13, 2017

The Crystal Maze reaches the end of its celebrity run with a couple of Loose Women, an EastEnder, a Northerner and a class clown…

In the genus of UK gameshow hosts, Richard Ayoade defies sub-categorisation. He’s not a Blood-Drinking Reptilian Overlord (Chris Tarrant, Noel Edmonds, Eamonn Holmes), nor is he Someone Who Would Be Driving A Foxtons Mini If They Weren’t On TV (Patrick Mulhern, Davina McCall, Paddy McGuinness, Vernon Kay). He’s not a Barrymore, a Bowen or a Les Dennis, and neither is he a Grandad Who 100% Killed Someone In The War (William G. Stewart, Des Lynam, Bruce Forsyth).

‘Chancers’ – The Great Gangster Film Fraud

Bashar Al Issa, a bankrupt Middle Eastern entrepreneur and Aoife Madden, an unemployed Irish actress join up to make feature films. Their first movie will have an almost unheard-of budget for a British film of £20m. But there’s a problem – the money never actually comes in. Undeterred, Bashar and Aoife submit £8m of production accounts to the British taxman and claim £2.5m in film tax breaks. The authorities smell a rat. They investigate, arrest, and charge the producers, and then bail them.

While out on bail, the producers decide to prove their innocence by actually making a film. They hire Paul Knight, a former nightclub bouncer, now a self-made film director, whose credits are some unreleased and unfinished films uploaded to Youtube, to make their movie for just a £100,000. The title: “A Landscape of Lies.” Paul Knight recruits an unusual cast that include one of the presenters of ITV’s daytime show Loose Women,

The 75-year-old nightclub owner was given a makeover on ITV's Loose Women earlier, before agreeing to part with his hair live on air for a good cause.

Peter Stringfellow at 74: 'Being a father at my age is fantastic'

Makeover panelist Gloria Hunniford said to him on today's show (October 29): "There's one thing I've got to bring up with you Peter, the hair is still really quite long... would you agree at any time to get your hair chopped?"

Stringfellow replied: "Absolutely not."

Presenter Andrea McLean then asked him: "How about if we asked you to cut it of live on air?"

After being egged on by the audience, Stringfellow said: "My wife loves it shorter, so okay, I'll do it for charity."

Stringfellow will be back on Loose Women on December 1 to have his cut

'Loose Women's' Andrea McLean and actress Anita Dobson have posed naked for the Women's Institute. The TV stars stripped off as part of a unique celebration for the organisation's 100th birthday and used a pair of tasty-looking buns each to hide their modesty. Talking about the shoot, Andrea - who is a regular panelist on the ITV daytime show - said: '' I tell you what, they didn't need considerably bigger buns when it came to me.

Loose Women stars go topless to recreate iconic Wi calendar shots, iced buns and all

Loose Women anchor Andrea McLean and guest panellist Anita Dobson have recreated the Women's Institute's iconic calendar shots with some strategically placed iced buns.

The pair have become ITV's very own Calendar Girls to celebrate the centenary of the Wi, with today's show marking its anniversary.

In another shot, TV presenter McLean and former EastEnders star Dobson can be seen protecting their modesty with a pair of Loose Women mugs.

The Women's Institute was created in Britain in 1915 in a bid to encourage more women to get involved in producing food during the First World War. Since then, it has become the largest voluntary women's organisation in the UK, and counts The Queen among its 212,000 members.

The naked photoshoot is based on a real-life charity fundraiser that was organised in 1999 and inspired by the tradition from the hidebound Woman's Institute association. It was immortalised in the 2003 comedy movie Calendar Girls,

Andrea McLean definitely won't be the next Loose Woman on Celebrity Big Brother

Andrea McLean has insisted that she won't be the next Loose Women panelist to join Celebrity Big Brother.

Nadia Sawalha, Coleen Nolan, Carol McGiffin and Denise Welch have all appeared on recent series of the reality show, but McLean thinks Channel 5 producers "wouldn't get their money's worth" with her.

She told Digital Spy at the press night for The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time in London: "I've said no all along. For one, I'd be so boring that they wouldn't get their money's worth.

"I've got no idea if anyone is doing it!" she added, when asked if any of her fellow panelists have been approached about the upcoming run.

Meanwhile, McLean said that she has no intention of signing up to any talent competitions this year as she wants to enjoy her summer without being injured, as she was last year while preparing for BBC One's Tumble.

Loose Women's Andrea McLean goes under the spell of Britain's Got Talent's Hypno Dog

Britain's Got Talent's Hypno Dog has claimed another victim... Loose Women panellist Andrea McLean.

She and fellow presenter Nadia Sawalha sat down with the pooch named Princess plus her assistant Krystyna Lennon earlier. Naturally, the Loose Women pair looked into Hypno Dog's eyes, not around the eyes, into her eyes.

As seen in the must-watch video, a hypnotised Sawalha wakes up to think she is Janet Street-Porter, and McLean believes dogs should have the same rights as humans.

After causing a bit of controversy last month, Lennon and Hypno Dog told Digital Spy they are used to people questioning their act - but challenged cynics to come to a live show.

The presenter has clocked up some jumping practice as she is planning to open the show with an acrobatic routine alongside the series' ten professionals.
