Dates for your diary

Lots of celebs will be out and about in London over the next few weeks so here are a few dates you might want to make note of:

May 26: Sir Ian McKellen will be at the Apple Store on Regent Street to promote his new film, Mr Holmes. He plays a much older Sherlock Holmes who is living in retirement but has started thinking back to one unsolved case from 30 years ago.

May 27: Melissa McCarthy, Jude Law and Jason Statham will walk the red carpet at the UK premiere of their new film, Spy.


McCarthy stars as a CIA operative who finds herself working undercover for the first time. The film also features Miranda Hart in her first Hollywood role. The premiere is at the Odeon Leicester Square.

Also on Wednesday, Rhys Ifans attends a special screening of his new TV drama, The Marriage of Reason and Squalor, at BAFTA. The four part drama, directed by Jake Chapman, will be screened on Sky Arts.

On Thursday, Daniel Rigby and Sarah Alexander will also be at BAFTA to promote their new show for Dave, Undercover. The comedy series follows an undercover police officer who finds himself hopelessly out of his depth when he infiltrates an Armenian crime family.

On June 1, Gemma Chan will be at BFI Southbank for a preview screening of her big new UK/US scifi series, Humans.


The show will be broadcast in the UK on Channel 4 and The drama is set in a world where the new must-have gadget is a “Synth”—an eerily lifelike robotic servant.

Greg Wise, George MacKay and Jessica Barden will be at the BFI on June 3 for the first screening of their BBC drama, The Outcast. The two part drama is based on the novel by Sadie Jones and follows a young boy who struggles to fir into life in post-War Britain following the death of his beloved mother.

The Entourage gang hit London on June 9 for the UK premiere of the big screen version of the hit show. Adrian Grenier, Jeremy Piven, Kevin Dillon and Thierry Henry (!) are all expected to walk the red carpet at the premiere which takes place at Vue West End.
