Binky and I have moved in together and it's been amazing. We have a lot of fun... too much fun. Admittedly, I was a little surprised by Alex wondering around in extremely skimpy boxers, but there has been no awkwardness since Alex has learned to wear trousers around the house.

Film Review: Klown and the Patience Stone Are Must See Viewing

Clive Botting | Posted 03.02.2014 | UK Entertainment
Clive Botting

The Danes hit the headlines with 'The Killing', 'The Bridge' and 'Borgen'. They also do comedy. KLOWN is a wonderfully outrageous comedy gem with assured performances and a finale of all time. It'll linger with you and you'll certainly chuckle after you leave the cinema.

The Commitments: A West End Review

My fears dropped away like the bag of revels I'd just spilt on the floor. As the broad Irish swearing continued, a few old people in the front rows began to shuffle and glance about nervously. It was clear The Commitments was going to be a show like no other.

Fifteen Cornwall - Review

Beth Brookfield

During a weekend break in Cornwall with my sister in September, I visited Jamie Oliver's Fifteen restaurant for lunch, which is somewhere I have dined a few times in the past. On previous visits, it had either been wonderful or mediocre but I was looking forward to trying the seasonal menu out after not visiting for a couple of years.

BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea Episode One featuring an all-new story for Booker and Elizabeth, set in the underwater city of Rapture before its fall, but it is worth playing?

Just 75 miles from New York and 85 miles from Philadelphia, the Pocono Mountains make for a convenient retreat and with so much to offer throughout the seasons, from outdoor adventures, fine dining, shopping and pampering, it's a destination that can be enjoyed by all.

Somewhere off the west coast of Scotland is a fishing trawler called the Crimson Arrow, and on the boat is a fisherman called Toastie. He brings his scallops into the harbour at Oban, and they are the best scallops in the world. How do I know?

Hannah Barratt took on a big Adele song and pulled it out of the bag. Fantastic vocal performance from a young starlet, destined to be a big success in the industry.

Aside from the show, I have some exciting developments on the way. Most of this week has been spent balancing filming and my office job where we are very excited for James Arthur's single "You're Nobody 'Til Somebody Loves You" to chart.

Wii Party U Revolutionises Family Play

Wii Party U offers another strong reason why the Wii U's Gamepad controller makes sense for families. Although the second screen technological is readily available on other platforms, albeit not in exactly the same package, it's only in Nintendo's hands that we see this properly leveraged for family fun.

Normally the scariest thing about West Sussex is the prospect of a delay at Gatwick but all that changes in Autumn as Tulleys Farm open their world famous scream park for Shocktober Fest.

Book Review - The Parrots

Lucy Popescu

The Parrots is often very funny - the gossip and feverish speculation surrounding literary awards is evidently the same the world over - and lucidly translated by Howard Curtis.

Review: American Lulu, Young Vic Theatre

I never saw Viva Forever - the Spice Girls musical. That apparently may have been the worst show ever on a London stage but American Lulu must run it close.

In my 10 days at the 2013 Edinburgh Festival, which closes this weekend, I've tried to see as much as possible in between my presenting commitments. So far, the bigger ticket events have been a little disappointing.

Arthur Smith's Nude Reviewer

I'm still bemused as to why the sight of me naked is funny (yeah you can keep your comments to yourself on that one...) but it pretty much always gets a laugh, often a really big one.

The Wonderful 101 Offers Excellent Exuberant Game-Play For Families on Wii U

Andy Robertson | Posted 18.10.2013 | UK Tech

Wonderful 101 may not seem like a hugely significant game to many outside the core gaming set. That it comes from Platinum games and is on the Wii U may be a headline for the gaming faithful but for families these things matter less.

In light of the recent teacher/student scandal, one wonders as to why exactly Lolito's release date has been brought forward from December to August. ...

Matthew Davies

For the first time this series, I'm genuinely gutted with this week's eviction outcome. Another twist that took place last week has essentially backfired again, leading to the eviction of the alpha-male in the house.

Yomi Adegoke

There were flashes of Tina Turner in her performance, with bolts of electric energy rippling throughout her and permeating the crowd. It was contagious. With every head bang and thrust of her arms, you couldn't help but feel you were in the presence of somebody who truly loved what they were doing.

Mario and Luigi Dream Team Bros. 3DS Review

Andy Robertson | Posted 10.09.2013 | UK Tech
Andy Robertson

Mario & Luigi Dream Team Bros. walks the tightrope between core and family gamers with finely tuned game-play and accessible controls. Although, as the family testing the game suggested, the amount of reading rules out pre-school gamers (even with its PEGI 3 rating), other family members will enjoy the story and progression.
