Eight Go Rallying: The Road to Saigon review – Noel Edmonds’ grumble in the jungle

What happened when four celebrities undertook an Asian road race? One competitive soul went full Partridge – and Martin Kemp ended up in hospital

On paper, it sounds like a dreadful idea: take four celebrities, with a partner apiece, put them in some old cars and let them race each other on dangerous jungle roads until Martin Kemp ends up in hospital. There is also a part of me that immediately says: “Yeah, I’d watch that.” So I did.

Much of the pre-publicity that Eight Go Rallying: The Road to Saigon (BBC Two) received was down to one participant, Noel Edmonds, slagging off the whole enterprise as fakery. His complaint might have had more merit if it had been his first time on television.

He’s the man behind Hereford Films, the production and financing company he runs with partner Damien Morley.

Kenny Goss Talks the Highs and Lows of Life with Former Love George Michael

Talking exclusively to The Sun in aid of the charitable Goss-Michael Foundation, the 58 year-old Texan lifted the lid on the extraordinary times he shared with Michael during their 13-year relationship, touching on such heart-wrenching issues as Michael’s drug abuse, multiple arrests and tragic Christmas Day death.

Let it Shine review – Gary Barlow’s being nauseatingly nice

It’s the big Saturday night talent-off, and Gazza’s being so generous to contestants who can’t sing that they’re going to keep practising. Plus: more of the same on The Voice

Gary Barlow is throwing everything he has into the opening sequence of Let it Shine (BBC1, Saturday): his voice (not to be confused with The Voice), his moves, his body. Rather a lot of his body, actually, in the shower, in a towel. Let Gary Shine, you might think this was.

But here are are Graham Norton and Mel Giedroyc, too. The BBC is also throwing everything into Let it Shine, in the big Saturday night talent-off against The Voice, which defected to the enemy. Get the Bake Off crowd in, too. And Gran, with Martin Kemp among the judges. And the Gleenagers, with Amber Riley. I am not sure who Dannii Minogue is for,

The Lrm Interview with The Edge of Seventeen’s Kelly Fremon Craig

If you aren’t a teenage girl, you might not think that Kelly Fremon Craig’s debut, the coming of age movie The Edge of Seventeen, is for you, but in fact, the characters and situations are surprisingly relatable regardless of your age or gender.

Her movie stars Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit) as Nadine, a teen outcast who only has one friend at high school, Haley Lu Richardson’s Krista. Nadine neither gets along with her widowed mother (Kyra Sedgwick) nor her perfect older brother Darien (Blake Jenner), so when Krista starts dating Darien, it only causes more anxiety for Nadine, so she turns to her history teacher (Woody Harrelson) for advice, although he wants nothing to do with it.

It seems like a simple enough plot, but Nadine’s dialogue and how it’s delivered by Steinfeld is spot-on, and her interaction with the cast around her (particularly Harrelson

What MTV Classic Needs to Do to Survive
If MTV Classic is anything like MTV, it'll be on the air for a month before people start complaining they don't play enough music. The "new" channel launched on August 1st, the 35th anniversary of MTV's debut, opening up the vaults to a pop-culture treasure trove that's been gathering dust for years. They should have done this years ago. MTV Classic wants to establish its music cred early on — they were wise to spend most of the first day playing classic Unplugged episodes, with Nirvana, Erykah Badu and R.E.M. The

11 Best Movies of 2016 So Far

11 Best Movies of 2016 So Far
What if Hollywood refused to release any more movies after June 30th, leaving audiences and Oscar voters to pick from what washed in with the tide from the first six months of 2016? Yikes. Last year at this time, we'd already had Mad Max: Fury Road, Inside Out, Love & Mercy and Ex Machina. This year's pickings are, well, slimmer. Amid the furor over the degrees of suckitude in Batman v Superman, the lack of laughs delivered by Kevin Hart in Ride Along 2 and Central Intelligence, and the franchise fatigue brought

Sing Street Arrives on Blu-ray, DVD, Digital HD and On Demand on July 26

From celebrated director and writer John Carney (Begin Again, Once), Sing Street arrives on Blu-ray, DVD, Digital HD and On Demand on July 26 from Anchor Bay Entertainment.

Audiences everywhere will be dancing in the streets when Anchor Bay Entertainment and The Weinstein Company release the universally praised film, Sing STREETon Blu-ray™ and DVD July 26, 2016 from Anchor Bay Entertainment and available on Digital HD and On Demand from Starz Digital July 26, 2016.

From celebrated director and writer John Carney (Begin Again, Once), the film features a stellar cast with Lucy Boynton (Miss Potter), Maria Doyle Kennedy (“Orphan Black”), Aidan Gillen (“Game of Thrones”), Jack Reynor (What Richard Did) and newcomers Kelly Thornton and Ferdia Walsh-Peelo. The Rotten Tomatoes Certified Fresh film is “funny, charming, poignant,” according to Katie Walsh at the Los Angeles Times.

Sing Street marches to the beat of an eighties drummer with the music and influence of The Clash, A-Ha, The Cure, Duran, Genesis, Spandau Ballet, The Jam, Motorhead and more. Also included in the film is an original emotional ballad “Go Now” penned by Maroon 5’s frontman Adam Levine.

Sing Street takes us back to 1980s Dublin seen through the eyes of a 14-year-old boy named Conor (Ferdia Walsh-Peelo) who is looking for a break from a home strained by his parents’ relationship and money troubles, while trying to adjust to his new inner-city public school where the kids are rough and the teachers are rougher. He finds a glimmer of hope in the mysterious, über-cool and beautiful Raphina (Lucy Boynton), and with the aim of winning her heart he invites her to star in his band’s music videos. There’s only one problem: he’s not part of a band…yet. She agrees, and now Conor must deliver what he’s promised – calling himself “Cosmo” and immersing himself in the vibrant rock music trends of the decade, he forms a band with a few lads, and the group pours their heart into writing lyrics and shooting videos.

Inspired by writer/director John Carney’s life and love for music, Sing Street shows us a world where music has the power to take us away from the turmoil of everyday life and transform us into something greater. Sing Street is “an irresistible, feel-good movie”, Leonard Maltin.

Sing Street is rated PG-13. Runtime is 106 minutes. The Blu-ray and DVD bonus content includes Making Sing Street, Writer/Director John Carney and Adam Levine Talk Sing Street and nine cast auditions.
