Here’s the first look at Michael Caine, Lena Headey, Rita Ora, David Walliams and Noel Clarke in new film Twist.Continue reading First look: Twist
Michael Caine is to play Fagin in a new modern interpretation of Charles Dickens’ Oliver Twist.
ITV kicks off the year with the return of Broadchurch. Will we all be as hooked again? We’ll have to wait and see.
Also in the New Year, The Voice returns to BBC1 with Rita Ora replacing Kylie Minogue in the judges chair.
Kylie was such a hit last year, can Rita emulate her success? And can the show ever launch a successful pop star?
There are some great dramas due on our screens in 2015. I’m really excited for the BBC’s adaptation of Hilary Mantel’s Booker Prize-winning Wolf Hall.
It stars Mark Rylance and Damian Lewis as Thomas Cromwell and Henry VIII. The books are fantastic and I’m really intrigued to see if the TV version will be the same.
The BBC are also turning to classic literature for a new adaptation of Tolstoy’s War and Peace.
Paul Dano, Lily James and James Norton will star in the series which will be shown as six one hour episodes. Filming hasn’t started yet so I expect it’ll be on screens towards the end of 2015.
And finally, you’ll have to forgive me for this, but I am already excited about the return of Sherlock!
Filming on the special one-off episode begins on January 6 with three new episodes due to be made later in the year, I suspect getting Martin and Benedict at the same time is probably pretty tough these days.
Anyway as Moriarty would say ‘did you miss me?’ Yes!!
It’s that time of year – Christmas lights are being switched on around the country and celebs are coming out to flip the festive switches.

Meanwhile, the Regent Street lights will be themed around Night At The Museum: Secret at the Tomb with the big switch-on taking place on November 16.
