Justice For the 96 Who Died at Hillsborough - But Why Has It Taken So Long?

My Nanna was very worried for her sons, and it took an awfully long time to find out if they were okay (they had tried to phone as soon as possible, but every phonebox from Sheffield to Manchester had a queue). Eventually, word came through that they were, having been in the fateful Leppings Lane end where the crush happened.

London Marathon - Afterwards

I managed to grab a word with a few famous faces at the start. Chris Evans was playing it exceptionally cool, while Judge Rob Rinder was casually talking of going sub-three hours. Sprinter Iwan Thomas was a ball of energy. It was rather bizarre to bump into MP Simon Danczuk, who's been suspended by the Labour party, along with his estranged wife Karen.

Here I am, hours from returning to that start line once more, to confront those demons. Every little niggle right now is a big worry. Every sneeze from one of my girls a potentially run-threatening cold I could catch.

'Big Brother: Timebomb' - Week Eight Review

This series has flown. Despite Big Brother's multiple attempts to reignite the series and keep things fresh, I feel hugely underwhelmed. With the final only days away, never in sixteen years have I felt as apathetic to any housemate line-up as I have Timebombs.

'Big Brother: Timebomb' - Week Seven Review

From the beginning, Danny proved popular with the viewers. Pitting oneself against the house villain always manages to be a strong tactic for winning favour with the public. I grew to respect Danny for standing up towards the bullies. However I feel he has let himself down massively ever since.

'Big Brother: Timebomb' - Week Six Review

Helen was cancer to last year's Big Brother house and this year's series was equally affected. I can only feel sorry for the housemates who auditioned for this year's series, rather than last year's but ended up having to live with the corrupted, twisted, rotten woman.

Celebrity Big Brother 2015: Is Perez Hilton the Real Victim in the House of Hate?

James Brinsford

Could it be though that he is just really proficient in unravelling the personalities of those there with him and with this ultimately being 'just a game show', is playing them for who they really are and showing the viewers a side of his housemates that they were hoping would not be revealed?

'Celebrity Big Brother' - Is There Anybody There?

With the exception of the increasingly deranged Hilton, most of the people in the house are pretty normal, and I never thought I'd say that about Calum Best. But if the programme can't keep hold of its guests long enough to evict them, then the public doesn't get its say and that's not the premise of Big Brother.

Has Celebrity Big Brother Finally Gone Too Far in the Name of Entertainment?

After the build-up that had TV executives instructing lawyers to watch and listen to every word that Katie Hopkins spoke, it is a statement of how far Big Brother has plunged that she has become a voice of reason and has even garnered some sympathetic ears.

The final twist, if twist it is, was that Katie Hopkins had to be nice to everyone or risk suffering her worst nightmare. We weren't told what that was, but I should imagine it's being ignored. Oh, the two slebs up for eviction are Chloe Goodman and Alexander O'Neal.
