It’s been yet another busy week in showbiz, starting Coachella and ending with a rather spirited attack on hunting from Ricky Gervais - but what are the stories and videos in between that have kept us entertained this week?

1. Rachel Riley’s ‘Countdown’ Mishap

It’s not big or clever, but a rude word on ‘Countdown’ never fails to have us in stitches. Rachel and her team (just about) managed to stifle their giggles, proving that you’re never too clever to laugh at a good old-fashioned rude joke.

See what word came up on the show here.

2. Sue Perkins’ Girlfriend Anna Richardson Helped Restore Our Faith In Humanity

We were more than a little disappointed when ‘Bake Off’ star Sue received vile tweets, over rumours that she could be taking over on ‘Top Gear’.

The star decided to leave the social-networking site, but what happened next restored our faith in kindness.

3. James Corden Did ‘Basic Instinct’

There are no words. Seriously. Just watch the video below, then read why he did it here.

4. Susanna Reid Showed Everyone How To Deal With Piers Morgan

Piers Morgan pitched up in our living rooms this week, well, he was on the ‘Good Morning Britain’ sofa anyway. While we were free to change channel - though of course Piers, if you’re reading this, we definitely stayed tune - Susanna Reid wasn’t given a remote that could turn the presenter off.

How did she keep him under control? Find out here.

5. The Trailer To End All Trailers Was Released

Haven’t seen the ‘Star Wars’ trailer yet? Where have you been?! Panic not, because we’ve got it - and have been watching it on repeat for hours solid.

Is it December yet?

Oh, and there was also the small matter of a Glastonbury announcement - which came with a big ol' gap. Who could fill it? Here are the options...
