Suicide Widow

Yesterday was my wedding anniversary. I would have been married 21 years. Some might say ‘well what’s the issue you didn’t want to spend the rest of your life with him anyway’. Doesn’t matter, that’s irrelevant, I hadn’t stopped caring for him, I hadn’t stopped loving him, I certainly did not want him dead, but […]

Danny lost his job at the BBC earlier this month (Picture: Victoria Jones/PA Wire) A Danny Baker-hosted show is to air on the BBC later tonight, marking the former 5 Live DJ’s first appearance on the BBC since he was fired by the corporation earlier this month. Baker was sacked by the BBC on 9 May after he tweeted a photo of a couple holding hands with a chimpanzee with the caption: ‘Royal baby leaves hospital.’ The post came on the same day that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle introduced the world to their newborn son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. Baker deleted the post after facing an online backlash. The 61-year-old publicly apologised for the offensive post in a series of tweets after his sacking, saying that he made ‘a genuine, naive and catastrophic mistake’. ‘The picture in context as presented was obviously shamefully racist,’ he added. ‘It was never intended so.’ Baker has already returned to the live stage since his sacking (Picture: ITV/REX/Shutterstock) It’s now been confirmed that a show Baker hosted back in 2016, People’s History of Pop, will air tonight (24 May) as a repeat on BBC Four, marking the first time that the BBC has used a Baker-fronted programme since he was sacked. Tonight’s episode, which will air at 11:10pm, will explore the years 1966-1976 in pop (‘A time when music fans really let rip’, a programme description reads) through the memories and assorted memorabilia of music fans. A BBC spokesperson stressed to Metro.co.uk: ‘The People’s History of Pop is a repeated series that was first broadcast in 2016 and Danny Baker presents one episode.’ Baker has already returned to his live commitments since his sacking. Appearing at a scheduled show in Nottingham the weekend after he was fired by the BBC, Baker made reference to the scandal on a number of occasions. A few days after, Baker admitted on stage in London that the post and the subsequent fall-out was ‘entirely my fault and it should never have happened.’ [metro-fact-box id=”7022752″ title=”Got a showbiz story?” icon=”exclamation” /] [metro-link url=”https://metro.co.uk/2019/05/14/danny-baker-wont-face-police-action-royal-baby-racist-tweet-9538012/” title=”Danny Baker won’t face police action over Royal Baby ‘racist’ tweet”] [metro-link url=”https://metro.co.uk/2019/05/12/graham-norton-targets-danny-baker-seann-walsh-no-holds-barred-tv-baftas-speech-9503438/” title=”Graham Norton targets Danny Baker and Seann Walsh in no holds barred TV Baftas speech”]

The climber doesn’t use any ropes, harnesses or other protective equipment during their ascent. This daring stunt forces them to rely entirely on their own individual strength and skill to scale a wall or mountain. Climbers are motivated by the exhilaration of success, with the thrill of the void luring them in to climbing hard routes un-roped and close to their limit.

You know her name (Pictures: REX Features)  You’d have to go a long way to find anyone who hasn’t heard of Renee Zellweger Having starred in the blockbusters the likes of Bridget Jones’ Diary, Cold Mountain, and Chicago, Renee Zellweger has been a household name for over two decades. Now, as we ready ourselves to binge Zellweger’s new show – and first foray into acting on the small screen for 18 years – What If, here’s a look back at multi-award-winner’s illustrious acting career so far. Renee Zellweger’s film and television career American actress Renee Zellweger was born on April 25, 1969 in Katy, Texas. Zellweger began acting professionally in 1992, having realised her interest in acting after she took an elective drama class at the University of Texas at Austin where she studied. After she graduated, she took bit parts in low-budget and/or indie films, appeared in the miniseries Murder in the Heartland in 1993, and by 1994, she scored her first main part in a movie – Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation, opposite a then-relatively-unknown Matthew McConaughey. However her big break didn’t come until 1996, when she starred opposite Tom Cruise in the massively successful romantic dramedy Jerry Maguire. Renee worked steadily in the years that followed, appearing in the likes of One True Thing in 1998, Me, Myself and Irene in 2000 opposite Jim Carey and Nurse Betty, also in 2000, which was the role that earned her her first of three Golden Globes. The in 2001, she went from strength to strength when she got the part of Bridget Jones in the now-classic rom-com Bridget Jones’ Diary. The film was massively successful, having spawned two sequels (so far), and earned Zellweger not only another Golden Globe nomination, but also her first Oscar and Bafta nominations. Then in 2002, the seemingly unstoppable Zellweger starred as Roxie Hart in the musical Chicago alongside Catherine Zeta-Jones, Richard Gere, John C.Reilly and Queen Latifah, and won herself her second Golden Globe for her trouble. Zellweger followed the success of the Best-Picture-Oscar-winning-Chicago with an appearance in Cold Mountain as Ruby Thewes, for which she ultimately won her Academy Award. Then in 2005, she both starred alongside Russell Crowe in Cinderella Man and received her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Her sixth Golden Globe nomination came after Zellweger starred as the titular character in 2006 the biopic Miss Potter, and in 2007, she acted in the internet-infamous Bee Movie. What followed this time of astronomical success for Zellweger was a period of mixed-to-negative reviews for appearing in the likes of Leatherheads (2008) New in Town (2009) and the critically-panned Case 29 (2010), the actress took a six-year break from work. Her comeback came with a vengeance in 2016 when Zellweger starred as Bridget Jones for the third time in the hugely successful Bridget Jones’s Baby. [metro-video id=”1911628″ ] Since then, she’s again worked steadily – acting in Same King of Different as Me in 2017 and Here and Now, alongside Sarah Jessica Parker, in 2018. Now, Zellweger is about to appear in Netflix’s new melodrama What If, which represents her television acting since her one-off turn on the animated comedy King of the Hill in 2001. She’s also set to appear as the one and only Judy Garland in the upcoming biopic Judy – which is due to be release in October of this year. What If debuts on Netflix today, Friday 24 May.  [metro-fact-box id=”7022752″ title=”Got a showbiz story?” icon=”exclamation” /] [metro-link url=”https://metro.co.uk/2019/04/24/kaley-cuoco-shares-adorable-big-bang-theory-tribute-team-sheldon-cooper-fans-kicking-off-9301565/” title=”Kaley Cuoco shares adorable Big Bang Theory tribute to team – but Sheldon Cooper fans are kicking off”] [metro-link url=”https://metro.co.uk/2019/04/24/eastenders-star-danny-dyer-receives-letter-cousin-prince-charles-9299431/” title=”EastEnders star Danny Dyer receives letter from ‘cousin’ Prince Charles”]

In composing the score for “Good Omens,” David Arnold asked himself, “What would happen if Walt Disney was possessed by Satan?” That seemed appropriate for this long-awaited TV adaptation of Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett‘s fantasy novel about an angel (Michael Sheen) and a demon (David Tennant) teaming up to prevent Armageddon. Watch our exclusive video interview with Arnold above. SEE Anne Oldham interview: ‘Good Omens’ hair and makeup That initial concept came from a scene where Tennant tries to get the young Antichrist to fall asleep. “He does it by singing him very sweetly a song about [how] when the world is destroyed, he’ll be in charge of it and humanity will be wrought of blood and guts,” Arnold explains. It was “the opposite of what you would sing to a child in that situation,” but he wrote it as if it were “the sort of thing that Mary Poppins sang to the kids.” From that tiny piece of music, Arnold conceived of an entire score built around those contradictions. “Whenever there is anything nice and sweet in this score,” he says, there is “something alongside it which is bad and dark, and twisted and perverse, and evil and funny and wicked, and vice versa.” This theme was “born of the two characters, even though they don’t have one theme each.” They share common music because, “to a greater extent, they share similar characteristics.” SEE 2019 Emmys exclusive: Amazon Prime categories for ‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,’ ‘A Very English Scandal,’ ‘Homecoming’ and more Arnold won an Emmy in 2014 for his work on “Sherlock” following previous bids for that series in 2011 and 2012. He also competed at the BAFTAs for that show and for his score for “Casino Royale” (2006). That James Bond action film also earned him a Grammy bid for penning the song “You Know My Name.” It was his second Grammy bid following his victory for the score from “Independence Day” (1996). “Good Omens” premieres May 31 on Amazon Prime. The all-star cast also includes Jon Hamm, Michael McKean, Miranda Richardson, Brian Cox, Frances McDormand, Benedict Cumberbatch, Derek Jacobi and Nick Offerman. All six episodes were written by Gaiman and directed by Douglas Mackinnon (“Sherlock,” “Outlander,” “Doctor Who“).
