Mainstream cinema has an incredible power to influence, particularly in young people's formative years. With a close, emotional connection to the characters on our screens, girls often learn about femininity through these constructed portrayals of womanhood. The media industry, therefore, has a crucial responsibility to provide a range of truthful depictions of women.
You're beyond excited that Nineties fashion is 'in' again and discover there is the wardrobe of a Shoreditch hipster stashed in your loft. You knew one day you'd be glad you hung on to that satin slip dress from Snob and those Dr Marten's cherry reds.
The most watched television programme of the year was the final of a baking competition. Almost a quarter of the nation tuned in to see Nadiya Hussain win the Great British Bake Off, a competition comparable to those held at village fetes the nation over. But Hussain's victory is much more important to British society...
Frieze is arriving and the art world seems set to eats its own tail. Artists are painfully aware that the process of gentrification, where local residents are priced out of their area begins with them.
All hail GBBO star, queen and general lovely lady, Nadiya. (Full name: Nadiya Hussain, but she really needs no surname a la Beyoncé.) She's adored for both her sweet cakes and sweet nature and may have just accidentally become the dream poster girl for religious and cultural tolerance in the UK. Casual.
With 2017 fast approaching, now is the time for you film and TV production companies to act, pull your socks up and provide us and the rest of the country/world with some original or adapted productions that commemorate our glorious, beloved city.
From The A-Team to CSI, some of the most popular and enduring television shows have centred on a family, either real or created. John Logan's gothic horror Penny Dreadful is no exception to this generalisation.
Every 15 minutes, someone in the UK begins to lose their sight, that's almost 2million people in the UK. October 8 was World Sight Day, and in London this was celebrated with a very unique music event called Sound For Sight, at The Tabernacle, in Notting Hill, and on October 14 a similar event will take place at The Mint in LA.
In this case, for example, the word "slave" was part of an original quote by activist Emmeline Pankhurst, who led the suffragette campaign to give women the vote. It has precisely zero to do with what happened over several centuries between Africa and the Americas.
The musical star of Black Eyed Peas, The Voice judge and visionary entrepreneur headlined Entrepreneur's 360 conference in New York City this week and I was delighted to say I was there.
I've just been knocked out by The Incredible Hulk. In more ways than one. Both literally - and that's something for my acting résumé, surely - and metaphorically, by meeting the phenomenon in person and seeing what a nice guy he is.
The Father may well be one of the most emotionally devastating pieces of theatre I have ever seen. A play about dementia and its toll on those with it, and those who love them, is never going to be the most joyous of subjects but this production takes your heart into its hands - and then breaks it.
Can it be entirely coincidental that on the very same evening that the BBC bade farewell to its high-rating series about older people (New Tricks, in case you hadn't realised), it launched a new show about older people, Close To The Edge, a 7-part Reality TV show based around a group of older men and women living in Bournemouth?
On Tuesday 13 October at 10pm, everyone will be watching Girls to Men, Channel 4's much publicised documentary about three young people who were assigned a female gender at birth, but who have always believed that they were born in the wrong body...
Anita and Gleb performed the American Smooth to 'Unchained Melody' from Ghost. Gleb is without question the hottest dancer Strictly has ever had and thus caused me to lose concentration and I focused entirely on his muscular arse, so I've no idea if the routine was any good. Soz.
