Forget about whether Jules O'Dwyer should be stripped of the title and be made to return the prize money (a better idea would be if she gave the entire £250,000 to the RSPCA) or if she should continue to be allowed to perform at the Royal Variety Performance. Surely the bigger question is whether she should have been allowed to appear in the first place.

As my TV recorder slowly fills itself with unwatched episodes of my beloved soap, I have found myself feeling demotivated. Corrie marathons used to be my idea of heaven, but nowadays they find themselves up there with 'tackle the ironing' on my list of chores. Why? Coronation Street has well and truly lost the plot.

As one popularity contest ends, another begins; at 10pm on Thursday, the broadcasters will mount their 2015 general election night programmes. Yet despite the promise of all-new gadgetry, interaction and virtual reality graphics, the most significant aspect of polling night television is how little it has fundamentally altered since the inaugural BBCtv results service in 1950.

Although coping with an invisible illness isn't just about how you feel. Yes I am in pain every second of every day but I can manage my pain. I also get horrific migraines and all kind kinds symptoms pop up that I don't expect. What makes life difficult is attitude, not mine.

As a concept, it's incredible that You're Back in the Room hasn't been thought of before. Maybe it has and no one from the other side had the common sense, bravery or foresight to green-light it. BBC executives will be regretting that decision now.

James Brinsford

The 'second album' syndrome was bound to bring a few problems and, as is the case with many follow ups to great debuts, it had some moments of high tension and nail-biting drama that just about wins out over some of the 'filler' moments that appeared (insert second episode here).

Anyone not wanting to attend university is often force-fed the idea that apprenticeships are the way forward. Nearly half a million people started an apprenticeship in the 2013/14 academic year, including, surprisingly, more than 80,000 people aged over 35...

The Curious Case of 'Bad Behaviour' in Charities

Abdurahman Sharif | Posted 22.04.2015 | UK
Abdurahman Sharif

The reaction from the Charity Commission on these cases was in my eyes exemplary. Not only did it act swiftly to remove a charity that should have never been on their register in the first place but it also was quick to reassure the public on social media and elsewhere that the programme did 'not reflect the vast majority of charities that are properly run by honest trustees'.

We long for him to stomp along the corridors ranting and raving like a mad man. In a fit of uncontrollable rage, we want him to smash office equipment to bits as he humiliates and insults another of his employees. More than anything though, we hope for a few choice expletives to come out of his mouth.
