If you have been unlucky enough to miss all the action over on Channel 5's Celebrity Big Brother recently, then you've missed some of the most bizarre behaviour ever seen from a fellow human being.

Dancing at a Concert - Should We?

If you are on the front row and dancing, how does that affect others behind you? Alternatively, if you have paid a lot of money to sit on the front row, how do you feel if a lot of people come and stand in front of you for half the concert?

'Excluded? Are You Kidding?'

Nearly all of us grow up being told that our school days are the best, most important days of our lives. So what happens to the four and a half thousand kids who seemingly muck that up every year? Do they feel, like I would have, that they've ruined their lives?

Why The Loss Of Deirdre Barlow Hits So Hard

Caroline Frost | Posted 21.03.2015 | UK Entertainment
Caroline Frost

Through it all, Anne Kirkbride remained one of the Street's most robust pillars - the youngest of that generation of stars who gave their whole working life to a TV soap, came into people's homes three times a week, entertained them and, in return, earned a place in our collective affection denied much bigger screen stars.

Taken 3: The Action Movie as Self-Help

Neeson now seems to play roles that combine the everyday concerns of middle-age men (being a father and husband), a 'particular set of skills' (black-belt upf**kery), and under-the-radar sexism (women either need to be saved or simply don't feature) to box office success.

Unfortunately we are not all programmed to be gym-bunnies and live off green juice, so come the first of February the gym regulars tend to get their normal routine back, while many of us might find ourselves with a glass of wine in one hand and a slice of pizza in the other, not really understanding how it happened.

Iggy to Iggy Cheek to Cheek

Just because I prefer the music of yesteryear doesn't mean I automatically dismiss the latest tunes. I'm all in favour of flash-in-the pan, one-hit wonders. But I'm still going to swing left-of-the-radio dial, as programmed by BBC Radio 6 and NPR Music in the States.

'The Imitation Game' - Success Has Many Fathers...

Witold Sobków

I congratulate the British film industry on The Imitation Game - another outstanding, world-class production... I cannot help but feel disappointed that the Polish contribution to breaking the Enigma code was not more prominently highlighted. Marian Rejewski, Jerzy Różycki and Henryk Zygalski, three brilliant Polish mathematicians, must be credited with the first breaking of the Enigma codes.

'Celebrity Big Brother' - Is There Anybody There?

Gill Alexander | Posted 20.03.2015 | UK Entertainment

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.

Feminist Role Model Emerges in CBB's Cami

Samantha Rea | Posted 18.03.2015 | UK Entertainment

Are we still in the Victorian era, when women had to pretend sex was endured as a wifely duty? It's 2015 and a woman is being ridiculed and slut-shamed for dually taking ownership of her sexuality and refusing to degrade herself by man-pleasing with a show of faux lesbianism. I think we should applaud her.

It's not a case of us not liking them. You only need to look at your newsfeed to come across a piece of content doing the rounds online. It's just that we don't want brands to specifically try and create virals.

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia: the Best Show on Netflix?

Andy Parker | Posted 17.03.2015 | UK Entertainment
Andy Parker

The UK has a proud tradition of completely ignoring the crème de la crème of American comedy, possibly due to TV bosses' inability (or reluctance) to broadcast great shows on our television screens. Lack of budget? Full schedules? Unfathomable ignorance?

Memo to Hollywood - You're Still Sexist

Hi Hollywood. It's me. I know this is a bit awkward, but I just wanted to drop you a line to remind you that women exist. Yes, I KNOW you really like Meryl Streep, but there are other ones. No, seriously. They even speak and move around and do things. Some of them even do films.

Class Clowns: How Comedy Films Define Social Class in Britain

We still find it hard to discuss social class. It can feel like a conversational minefield, sown with the potential for disaster: there are so many subtleties of language, identity and heritage that it can feel perilous just to raise the subject.
