Britain's Got Talent is, quite simply, the most watched and best TV show of the whole weekend. It has everything, talent, fun and Simon Cowell. What more could you want?
It's time to talk about FAT! The three letter word we seem to have learned to hate! It has such negative connotations, and we have been programmed into avoiding it at all costs BUTTTTTT there are GOOD fats as well as BAD. And these good fats can actually HELP you to lose weight!!
I was intrigued to know why an absolute powerhouse of an actress, whose stellar career has so far spanned 4 decades in Theatre, Film and Television and shows no signs of slowing down, would be so interested in exploring Gender Equality in Theatre.
Has a record company ever taken you to dinner? I know that Jeffrey Lewis has some strong thoughts about that, but I have been lucky enough to have a few of these dinners, some in honour of me, some in honour of others, but never in Tokyo (until now).
This might be a film for little kids but it's also a movie for serious comic book fans who like substance and story with their explosions, something of a rarity in the age of Transformers.

Golem is a dazzling visual feast with a biting social commentary that's enough to put a spring in the step of even the most jaded theatre-goer. In a show that fuses performance with animation, film and music, Golem challenges us to confront the lie that we've been sold - that technology will set us free.
This week we celebrated World Book Day, but I want to urge you to use the event as an opportunity to remind yourself of those books which have most influenced you at any point in your life.
