Well last night got heated! Not one, not two, but three people crying (and I'm not a pretty crier). So why did I stay in Sam's bed that night? I didn't think it was a problem as I thought Sam and I were good enough friends and I didn't know about Tiff. In hindsight, it wasn't the best idea. Time machine anyone?
Now, it's hardly a controversial view that people residing in North Africa and the Middle East during the era of the Old Testament weren't white. They were likely to be of an Arab or Black complexion. So imagine my disappointment upon watching this trailer, to see that pretty much every single character, other than a few background thieves and slaves, were white.
It's Christmas...well nearly, but I can tell you one thing for certain, just four remain and the pressure hasn't been greater. It's the X Factor semi-final and for the second week in a row, they have to sing two songs.
Now there is a new series called The Sixties on DVD that was shown on CNN in America and Yesterday in the UK. The subjects are what you'd expect - the Cuban Missile Crisis, the assassination of JFK, the 'British Invasion' focussing on music, civil rights, Vietnam, the coming of age of television, the Space Race, and, of course sex, drugs and rock and roll.
But those who long for a more serene jungle experience can now opt for a relaxing escape instead, as more and more travellers look to explore luscious green tropics without leaving luxury far behind.
All good things come to an end is what they say and at the weekend it seems that the X Factor may have found itself in the last chance saloon. The problem it is facing is that the competition has become a lighter shade of beige, with Fleur East the only entertainer left in the process. Has the X Factor lost its mojo?
Hosted by the bright and beautiful Anita Rani, the quiz is influenced by QI and University Challenge. Over four rounds teams are tested on a wide range of arts trivia from David Bowie to George Eliot.
I've been out of Chelsea for some time, but if you saw last night's episode you know that's all about to change. Whilst I've been away Alik and Louise's relationship has had a few, erm, hiccups.
After a week of feeling very poorly, Lauren Platt is lucky to be even singing. The strain of the week really showed, it was her worst vocal of the series to date. Mel B said, "I could feel you weren't into it" Simon said, "I could tell you were straining vocally."
Admittedly Stevi Ritchie was not the greatest voice to grace the live stage but he had something different up his sleeve each week and cut through the monotony of sincere performances of the other acts.
In the words of Len Goodman just SEVEN acts remain, after Jay James left the competition last week. So is your favourite still in the running for the X Factor crown?
For most of this latest series, I was bored, and I know I'm not alone. The acting and directing have been excellent, the writing so far as dialogue and pacing has also been quite good, but the show has felt like it's becoming a bit old hat.
The first is Rabbit and the second is John Doe. Sod Michelin, with its mincing implore that a place is 'worth a detour'. These restaurants are a worth car crash. I'd pinch Chris Eubank's stupid big truck and drive it through several houses if that was the most direct route to Rabbit or John Doe.
According to the X Factor's premise, it is a 'television music competition to find new singing talent'. It has always been the case since it first hit our screens that if you wanted a sure-fire route to pop stardom, then a turn on the X Factor is what is required.
No stranger to reality TV and already a successful businesswoman, Gemma Collins clearly has some idea of what she is doing. The truth detection consultant and cynic in me wonders if Bobby Norris' best friend knows her audience better than we think, because although the anxiety is real her response to it does seem to be slightly disproportionate
Still missing is regular, usualised (to use Sue Sanders word) portrayals of LGBT pupils, parents and role models who are happy, successful and kind human beings- just going about their lives. Such portrayals send a vital life-changing message to the emergent young LGBT souls out there.
