Mainstream cinema has an incredible power to influence, particularly in young people's formative years. With a close, emotional connection to the characters on our screens, girls often learn about femininity through these constructed portrayals of womanhood. The media industry, therefore, has a crucial responsibility to provide a range of truthful depictions of women.
Entertainment's obsession with the bad boy brings those of us who are looking for a thrill to try, at least once, to dance with the devil. It makes us settle for the worst, look for challenges in guys who smell like danger rather than in those who can give us a good time without hurting us.
All hail GBBO star, queen and general lovely lady, Nadiya. (Full name: Nadiya Hussain, but she really needs no surname a la Beyoncé.) She's adored for both her sweet cakes and sweet nature and may have just accidentally become the dream poster girl for religious and cultural tolerance in the UK. Casual.
From The A-Team to CSI, some of the most popular and enduring television shows have centred on a family, either real or created. John Logan's gothic horror Penny Dreadful is no exception to this generalisation.
Anita and Gleb performed the American Smooth to 'Unchained Melody' from Ghost. Gleb is without question the hottest dancer Strictly has ever had and thus caused me to lose concentration and I focused entirely on his muscular arse, so I've no idea if the routine was any good. Soz.
With the quite frankly mass of modern social media and dating apps, meeting the one is quite frankly impossible, but finding 40million bizarre ones, a one night stand or some naughty sexting is just a swipe away.
The final of the Great British Bake Off did not disappoint. More than 14million viewers tuned in to see Tamal, Nadiya and Ian bake, among other things, classic British cakes.
I'm not saying I have a gift but I have correctly predicted the winner of the Great British Bake Off four years in a row. Does this mean I should be given Paul Hollywood's job? They've asked but I told them it was important that the judging maintained its gender balance.
Robert Peston is a Number Two. A quite brilliant Number Two, one of the best in the business. The sort of Number Two everyone wants by their side because he makes their job easier and them look better. But he's still a Number Two. Which is why his much-anticipated transfer to ITV will be a disaster.
There is no morality to food. It is sustenance, joy, sharing, culture, and just plain fun. We were given taste buds and pleasure centres in our brains for a reason. And bodies that live, breathe, play, and love.
This Is England is the most important British drama of the century so far. Following the M*A*S*H model of the film-turned-TV series, writer-director Shane Meadows has fashioned a blood-boltered, tonally infinite epic poem of Thatcherite Britain.
All three look to have pulled it out of the bag when it really mattered, but there can only be one winner. Who is going to claim the most sought-after tent-based accolade in television?
I was repeatedly invited over the duration of the two days to reconsider my position on this matter and apologetically I expressed my inability to do so. In fact it ultimately resulted in my being removed from the program, despite delivering above average results in ALL activities we partook in, this was of course dumbed down a tad.
In my new 90 minute film for BBC Four Oak Tree: Nature's Greatest Survivor I take a look at the oak beyond its obvious beauty, longevity and unmistakable presence and discover how it plays a much greater, indispensable role in our society.
Here's another crap misconception. That it's egotistical to love yourself. I was accused of loving myself at school, far from the sad truth that I had a lot of healing to do before I was to understand what it meant to love myself. Now I realise it's something that people say to others when they are threatened by someone's confidence as it reminds them of what little acceptance they have for themselves... I see beauty all around me, in people, places, objects and actions. That's love and it's a very powerful thing!
When it comes to the judging, Paul Hollywood suggests that Ian hasn't done enough with the time, it seemingly having slipped his mind that - let me repeat this - Ian's MADE A FULLY-FUNCTIONING WELL. FROM CHOCOLATE.
