Like a lot of young men, Dapper Laughs needs to be brought into the fold. It's too easy, and possibly too predictable to call for him to be banned. Let's not make a marginalised hero of this guy. Why not follow him on social media so we can understand exactly what it means NOT to be a man and work back from there. Instead, why not have a truth and reconciliation agreement. Failings of the past can be admitted and forgiven, and the 1.7m audience who mistakenly clicked on 'like' can be educated and mentored in a positive way to create some real change.
Before we start the parties and congratulate everyone for whipping up a Twitter storm, there are a few things to carefully consider. Yes, ITV should have known better - but what about everyone sat at home, scrolling through Dapper's social media accounts and laughing along?
This season Mama Joyce seems to have an issue with anyone who comes between her and her daughter, or more specifically, her daughter's money. She hates Kandi's friend Carmon because apparently Carmon is having an affair with Todd.
The spooky costumes and eerie backdrops have been packed away for another year and this weekend we move on with a Michael Jackson vs Queen theme.
'British' means anything you want it to. I had hoped that too would be the message of Channel 4's Make Leicester British documentary which aired on Monday night - yet it wasn't to be. From the introductory seconds, the programme started on with the anti-immigration attitude I quietly dreaded.
Anarchy is a story "written by a thousand hands" that is aired through weekly episodes on France 4. A team of 15 scriptwriters got the ball rolling on Thursday with the serie's first episode. From now until the 18th of December it is up to Anarchy's viewers to craft the plot and to shape each and every character, red-herring and gag.
Last week, Lola underwent a makeover to boost her morale but although she looked stunning, she still faltered during her performance. Changing her hair and her outfit wasn't enough to build the resilience she needs. I know it because I've been there. Many have. It's about feeling that you're not good enough at a deep level.
A thick fog has descended over Food Tube HQ where some frightfully delicious recipes have risen from the shallow depths of the internet... Mwhahahahahahaha!
Featuring Britain's Clive Owen as Doctor John Thackery, the experimental Chief Surgeon ahead of his time, it doesn't exactly make for comfortable prime time viewing. You're best advised to have finished eating before it starts.
You call in sick with a moderate physical ailment, because it's easier to tell your boss you have a migraine/food poisoning/the flu than go into the intricacies of something you may not understand yourself. Have you ever been told to 'be strong' or 'get over it' by someone who just can't fathom the incorporeal nature of what's affecting your life?
It's been well documented that one of my best friends, Ross Hutchins, was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma a few years ago. Ross and I had grown up together on the tennis circuit, and his diagnosis was devastating. He was treated with chemotherapy at the Royal Marsden Hospital and a year after his diagnosis, his cancer went into remission. He's now fit and well to this day - a testimony to the crucial advances we've made in cancer treatment thanks to ground-breaking research into the illness. But not everyone is so lucky. At the beginning Elena Baltacha, the former British number one, was diagnosed with cancer of the liver. She died in May, at the age of 30.
I caught up with the lovely Peter Andre at the launch of his new perfume Scarlet. Peter revealed the metrosexual in him and discussed his views about modern beauty in a refreshingly candid interview.
If you choose to watch the soap with your child, you should be willing and able to discuss any issues the programme brings up, including that of sexual violence. If your child is old enough to understand that the implied rape scenes depict a rape, then she is old enough to be taught that rape does not just happen on an unlit path at night.
Saturday October 12 heralded the much trumpeted return of the X Factor live shows, which immediately raised one small question. One very very small question. Has Dermot got shorter since last year?
To get ahead and be successful, there is no doubt that you have to be a strong and confident leader with clear idea about what you want and how you're going to get it. To remain successful, however, the narcissism that many of them seem so proud of will need to take a back seat to make way for more rational, big-picture thinking.
It's been a vintage year for The Great British Bake Off, and as an avid cake-maker myself, I've watched the contestants produce outstanding show stoppers, inventive signature bakes and mind-boggling technical challenges in awe every week. The programme never fails to help me improve my baking skills, but this year, it's also taught me 10 valuable life lessons...
