Misfits Series 5

The E4 phenomena and award-winning TV show that is Misfits, is due to return to our TV screens on the 23rd October 2013 for it's fifth and final series (sad times). The series will feature a few familiar faces as well as picking up some newly super-powered ones along the way. As much as I love Misfits and as much as I'm glad there's going to be a new series soon, i still think Nathan and Kelly were the original supers.
Anyway, what will the orange-caped super-'heroes' get up to this series? All i'm guessing is that they'll probably get through a few more probation workers seeing as that's how they normally do things. And after seeing zombie cheerleaders and crazy nun's who know's what we can expect from those oh-so-ordinary kids down on that London estate.
Misfits starts at 10pm on Wednesday 23rd October on E4.

Bad Education

Okay, just need to get this out there. I have a new favourite TV programme. BAD EDUCATION. For those of you that haven't seen it, it's basically all about 'Alfie Wicker' (played by Jack Whitehall) who is a teacher at London Secondary School, Abbey Grove. The show is now on its second series on BBC and if you're not already following it, i strongly recommend you begin to as it is one of the funniest TV shows out there at the moment. Even more so if you're currently in secondary school/sixth form as certain bits are so relatable its kinda scary. I guess you could say it's a mixture of Mean Girls and Waterloo Road? Who doesn't want to see that?! 

You can see the 5th episode of series 2 of Bad Education on BBC Three at 10pm tonight (Tuesday). And if you can't wait till then, check out the series trailer to the right.

The NEW Doctor... Who?

The latest doctor, Matt Smith, recently announced his retirement from his role of The 11th Doctor on the greatly successful TV series, Doctor Who. But as that famous saying goes 'out with the old, in with the new' we can't help but ask the question WHO WILL BE THE REPLACEMENT? With it being such a huge TV series, the BBC are keen to keep info of the latest doctor a closely-guarded secret... That is, until this Sunday (4th August) at 7pm where there will be a live half-hour special presented by the lovely Zoe Ball which is due to reveal all. The show will include special guests such as the current Doctor, Matt Smith, Steven Moffat (Executive Producer), celebrity fans and actors who have previously taken on the role of The Doctor.
Although nothing has been confirmed the rumour-mill has being churning out some rather interesting names... One of which is the one-and-only OLIVIA COLEMAN. No, you did read that right. A female doctor? Why not! I'm sure feminists all over the world will love it and personally, so will I! If there was to be a female doctor, I couldn't think of anyone who would do the role more justice than 'Liv (we're on a first name basis).

Other names which have been mentioned include: Peter Capaldi, Dan Stevens and David Harewood. 

See the next actor to play The Doctor revealed on BBC1 on Sunday at 7pm.

Celebrity Big Brother 2013

I have some very exciting news! Well, its debatable but still.

Names, (including Charlotte Crosby (from Geordie Shore) and Carol McGiffin (from Loose Women)), have been revealed to be rumours of who will enter the Big Brother house for this year's Celebrity series. Other names include Sophie Anderton and Rob Atkinson. There have also be rumours that some of the so-called 'Celebrities' will be getting up to six-figure payments for going on the show. Who knew Channel 5 had that kind of budget? Sounds like it could be an exciting series, then again, its never been the same since Davina stopped presenting it.

Celebrity Big Brother starts next month on Channel 5.

Yeeeeeeeey tonight is the night! Geordie Shore is back for series 6! Everyone's back and down under this series AND Jay is back. I look forward to it! Will Gaz and Charlotte finally get together? Will Ricci and Vicky sort out their differences? Who will come out on top (pardon the pun), the bucking squad or the cock capturers? So many unanswered questions.

Geordie Shore starts tonight on MTV at 10.00pm.

Skins: Fire

Wasn't that amazing?! Being a newbie to Skins I didn't know what to expect but Fire was definitely worth the watch.
Skins: Fire features different aspects of main character, Effy's, life. From her job, to her love life and her trouble dealing with her best friend being diagnosed with cancer.
I can't fault the actors in the series, as far as I was concerned they were all great BUT something I couldn't help but think was 'are there too many issues included in the series?' With themes of illness, trust, sexuality, relationships and crime there's a lot of possible things to relate to. But is there too much?
Comment and let me know what you think. 
Skins: Pure starts next Monday on E4 at 10.00pm.

Let's Do Lunch With Gino and Mel

This is why I love this show... Barely 1 minute into the show, Mel asks Gino if he watched Wimbledon yesterday he replied with this...

*cue shitty Italian accent* "No, see, I was on my own and when I'm on why own, well, you know, whats the point in watching two men play with 1 ball when I can watch one woman playing with 2 balls? You know it doesn't happen often enough, I'm on my own so sod the tennis"

COMEDY GOLD. Meanwhile, Mel is freaking put going "we're live, we're actually live, we're on air" before Gino bursts out with "YES WE ARE LIVE AND WELCOME TO LET'S DO LUNCH"

Check out 'Let's Do Lunch With Gino and Mel' on ITV1 now.

Tonight's Corrie Episode

First things first, apologies to the costume department on the cobble but WHAT ARE YOU THINKING. Two travesties of double denim in one night? I was slightly scarred to say the least... Anyways back to the stories.

I can't get enough of Roy's sleepwalking, its just such a weird storyline but I can't wait to see where it goes.

Now, onto something more serious. Faye. Definitely on the list of characters I simply can't stand on the cobbles. Right up there with Dev. Anyways, why is she staying with her Dad and not Anna? I feel so sorry for Anna because Tim (the dad) is so manipulating (oooh big word there). I hope in the end she goes to live with Anna and another surprise tram crash happens just as Tim is walking across the road hmmm....

Now last thing, the huge story everyone's on about, Kylie's baby, is it Davids? Or is it his brothers, Nick's? I'm glad we're seeing David's phycotic side come back out again AND I LOVE the fact that no one knows that he knows the big secret (you understand that?). I just wonder how crazy he's gonna end up going... Just saying, we haven't seen a murder in Corrie for a while...

Katie Hopkins on This Morning

Katie Hopkins on This Morning. WOW. I first saw this on Facebook this morning and honestly, all I could think of was 'she is just such a snobby little bitch that sounds like a man'. If you haven't seen the video or don't know what its about, this woman, Katie Hopkins, is doing an interview on This Morning talking about how she decides whether or not her kids can be friends with another child by their first name. She goes on to say how she doesn't associate herself with people with common names like 'Tyler' or 'Chardonnay'. Comment, let me know what you think.

If you haven't already seen it I suggest you watch it just for the comedy factor. Phil and Holly both end up trying to piss her off.

 Love. It.

Storage Hunters.

What better show to start with than the one and only STORAGE HUNTERS.

It has to be one of my favourite shows out there. For anyone who hasn't seen it, basically its a load of rednecks running round storage facilities trying to find a good deal on some old shit that no one wants anymore and then selling the stuff they've brought to make money. It sounds boring but OH NO, every now and again they find a car or something... real crazy s**t.

First of all, there's the auctioneer, Sean (baldie on the left). He has a sort of incompetence when it comes to numbers in the sense that he cant actually speak. He just shouts the most random sounds and expects people to understand how much they're bidding. Nice try mate.

Then there's the people who actually bid on the stuff. O-M-G they're hilarious! They all get so aggy at each other over the smallest things. Mainly Lori, (the woman at the front of the picture) she will take any opportunity to have a go at every other person there, and I love her for it.

Personally, I think they should make a 'Storage Hunters Musical', that is something I'd pay to see. You heard it here first.
