There was a bit a controversy on Dancing on Ice this week - I was accused of giving the judges a one finger salute at the beginning of my performance. But it turned out after a few check backs from everyone including myself that I was innocent! Thank God.
Before you splutter all over the comments section, let's be clear that the end goal isn't a rigid 50/50 gender split of everything that ever goes on telly. Nobody's advocating shoehorning extra women into every possible scenario, just to make a statement.
Leon and June are our favourites by a country mile, a couple of retired school teachers, Leon can sometimes drop splinters of ignorance, but June's 'voice of reason' corrects the negative to equal truly endearing television.
Brain surgery, it's not exactly rocket science... but it is one of those jobs that people can't quite believe you do, and I am usually asked if I am joking.... So what is it like being a neurosurgeon? In common with rocket science, neurosurgery sounds more glamorous than it really is.
The thing about these shows is that they become hugely addictive for those competing. It's great fun doing a bit of dress-up on a Sunday night, getting your spray tan and being taught to do some pretty dangerous lifts and jumps every week.
A concerned awareness of the proportional lack of ethnic minority representation in UK media is not something new, but the surprise is that in these supposedly meritocratic times, it seems to be getting worse and not better.
But given that disabled people are more hit by the cuts than any other group of people; they shouldn't have just kept Sue and Dee in the line-up: They should have had additional disabled people up there too.
You might love Charlie Brooker, you might loathe him, but the fact is he and his show are really quite remarkable, because it really takes apart the horrendous products of modern television and really hits home the issue of shoddy mainstream journalism, something that many of us let easily slip by.
Netflix is threatening the giants of the entertainment industry. The company started by targeting cable channels, leveraging a huge catalogue of content to build a subscriber base and challenge these businesses' distribution models. Now it's set its sights on cinemas.
Will returning auditionee Jessica Steele join Team Midas? From the disappointment of having no chairs last year to all four turning this time, what an amazing turn around, excuse the pun. My chair did spin but Jessica won't be with us. Jessica joins Team Will.
So Jim Davidson has apparently won Celebrity Big Brother and the nation is split. There are those who believe he is a racist, misogynistic wife-beater who should never have been allowed back on TV, others who see him as a changed man who should be given another chance and some, probably the majority of the CBB audience, who just see him as a middle-aged comedian.
I hope the millions who watch Coronation Street will be tantalised by the short excerpts they heard of both pieces and hunt down the full works. Their efforts will certainly be rewarded.
A little known fact about me: I once spent an entire school year, Year Ten to be precise, sporting Martin Fowler from Eastenders' jacket (here's Martin's face when he first saw the offending item) The reason it's a little known fact is because I've done everything in my power since then to suppress it. But perhaps now is the time to finally face my coaty demons and then zip it for good.
Food Tube went live on Tuesday, taking over Jamie Oliver's Fifteen and throwing the party to end all parties, celebrating the channel's first anniversary.
Now I find myself flying to Innsbruck, Austria to film a TV show competing in winter sports. Almost a full circle of sorts.... just without the dancing. Unless I can dance on skis, which would be incredibly difficult! But even having the opportunity to compete with a five-time Olympic Gold Medalist is pretty awesome.
