Is 'The Voice' UK Any Good?

I couldn't tell you who's won or name a single contestant, which has always been the main criticism of The Voice UK. If it claims to find talent and create brand new popstars, where are they?

Why I Think Kim Kardashian Is a Genius

Lauren Riley | Posted 23.01.2015 | UK Entertainment
Lauren Riley

Did she cure an unknown disease? No. Did she take a stand against one of the many social issues that affect women? No. Maybe she voiced an opinion about the current global warming debate... nope, wrong again. Other than being an overrated clothes horse, it's hard to see the value added when it comes to Kim K. However despite all the arguments against the all-encompassing Kardashian brand, you can't help but secretly admire her business acumen.

Bouchard's Twirl: Sexist? Or Just Another Athlete Bullied By the Camera?

Carrie Armstrong | Posted 22.01.2015 | UK Sport
Carrie Armstrong

It isn't sexist to ask a woman to twirl for a camera. It's just sh*t presenting. What is worrying is the fact that this young woman with the world at her feet (and all of the power that goes with it?) felt powerless to refuse this action she clearly felt very uncomfortable doing.

Are TV Formats Boring?: Welcome to #Britishshowsrenamed

These days I've become increasingly bored of television formats and much prefer the company of my laptop, the neighbours cat (who wanders through my conservatory in a daily escape bid from captivity) and a mug of beef tea.

It's a hobby I immensely enjoy, and one that I am fortunate to have shared with countless enthusiastic, outgoing and passionate people who work extremely hard to recreate life in the Dark Ages for the benefit and enjoyment of others.

The National Television Awards - Two Hours Too Long

There was a tedious air of predictability about the whole thing. In fact they should re-name the NTAs the AntandDecs and just have done with it, given that the Geordie twosome featured in a slew of categories and won most of them.

The film I've made, Secret Horse: Quest for the True Appaloosa, tells Scott's story; an older woman who felt so passionately about something that she was prepared to put herself on the line. She is an inspiration to us all to follow your heart and never take 'no' for an answer.

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.

'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?

'Celebrity Big Brother' - Is There Anybody There?

Gill Alexander | Posted 18.01.2015 | 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.

I don't in fact blame the people who think in this way actually. Despite their views, some of them were actually quite nice, The question is: If this is their public information service how else can they think after, being bombarded with information like as the great 'terror expert' Steven Emerson told Fox News?

There are a million and one things to consider when moving house including ordering a phone line and a broadband connection. However, I strongly recommend waiting to ensure you get the right deal for you and don't end up paying more than is necessary.

Celebrity Big Brother - Say What, Ken?

Now one-time Corrie regular Ken Morley has been ejected for his "unacceptable and offensive language". Goodbye, Ken. It is doubtful that anyone other than your agent will mourn your departure.

I was nervous about the arrival of the Real Housewives to our shores, and rightly so. Us Brits don't have the best track record when it comes to adapting American reality shows.

Why It's a Disgrace Racist Corrie Star Ken Morley Gets to Stay in CBB

This year's Celebrity Big Brother has to go down as one of the most shambolic seasons in reality TV history. Just look at last Saturday night's show - an alleged sexual assault and derogatory racial slurs all in one episode.

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.

Since Judy Finnigan's wardrobe malfunction at the National Television Awards, I'm pretty sure she's gone about her day without men pulling open her dress, juggling her jubblies and cheerily reassuring her, "everyone's seen them anyway".

Two people have died during an accident at LG's TV factory in South Korea. It is believed that the two men were engineers carrying out routine main...

Bungle, I mean Paul Cullihan was hoping his audition would end with five chairs spinning, sadly there was no 'rainbow' at the end of his performance and he went home.

Celebrity Big Brother - The Launch

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.

It was really just yet another reality TV show - but unusually it was about intelligent sentient beings and not just strange orange people.

Channel 4's Proposed New Famine Comedy: Let's Judge It By the Script, Not Our Preconceptions

Paddy Duffy | Posted 06.01.2015 | UK Entertainment

Ultimately, the only things a comedy really needs are a good script, a good cast to perform it, a good crew to make it and the goodwill of the audience to take it to their hearts. If a writer thinks he has an idea that ticks all those boxes, he's entitled to give it a crack and it's absolutely crucial that he's allowed to try to break ground and boundaries.

101 Reasons to Hate Katie Hopkins

Katie Hopkins does not represent fat women, in fact she doesn't represent women in the UK at all, so despite her attempt to speak on behalf of us all... she can't possibly. I will not be watching the show and I implore you not to, not even for curiosity's sake.

Mark was the man who formerly owned the Grosvenor, which was the main focus for the show in 2012/2013 before everything went spectacularly tits up and it had to be sold to pay off his increasing mountain of debts.

The Curious Case of Katie Hopkins

Laura Blumenthal | Posted 02.01.2015 | UK Entertainment
Laura Blumenthal

Your first thoughts on Katie Hopkins could be that she's a poisonous attention-seeker. On greater depth you can see that Hopkins raises some valid points and thoughts but phrases them in the most insensitive and hurtful ways. Is this the only way to get listeners to pay attention?..
