this week we’re loving

MORNING LIVE Kym Marsh and Gethin Jones are going head to head with Lorraine Kelly as they front BBC1’s new live daytime show Morning Live, starting this week. Just like ITV’s Lorraine, the show is aiming to be a ‘lively and entertaining mix of topical content and expert advice’, and Kym and Gethin will be on air from 9.15am-10am, while Lorraine is on from 9am-10am. Former Corrie star Kym said, ‘I’ve always enjoyed morning TV – it’s a great way to start the day. I love nothing more than a good catch-up, although this will be on a slightly different scale – more of a daily conversation with our viewers.’ ● Morning Live is on BBC1, weekdays at 9.15am Remember, you can download Woman’s Own from the App Store or Google Play Store direct…

sally ann matthews ‘i don’t like guns, even replicas’

Corrie’s Sally Ann Matthews reveals all about her real-life terror on the Cobbles… Jenny is confronted by a gun-toting Scott, Johnny’s villainous pal, this week… She’s terrified! She might live on Coronation Street and of course her dad tried to kill Rita years ago, but in reality when someone pulls a gun on you, you’d be cacking yourself! And she is! I didn’t like the filming. I don’t like guns, even though it was only a replica. I kept going, ‘There’s nothing in that, is there?’ Could this be the end of the road for Jenny and Johnny? She’s put up with a lot and gone along with all of it, but Johnny’s never really told her the full story. She knew he wasn’t whiter-than-white, but the idea that he has a past that…

rich pickings!

Top performer What a spectacular final! Jon Courtenay was a very worthy winner in my opinion. To me, he is the ultimate act to cheer the nation up. The personal nature of his performance was very heartwarming and it was very clever how he made it so personal to his life, yet relatable to every family out there, too. Magic moment The hilarious and original Steve Royle was another one of my favourites. He wasn’t a traditional magic act but his quirky magical performance was brilliant and you couldn’t help but love him and find him funny. I would describe him as a natural crowd-pleaser, who keeps the audience captivated from start to finish. His performance might be my favourite one of the entire series! Impressive tricks Lastly, young Jasper Cherry did brilliantly with his…

one punch killed both my boys

Walking into the spare room, I gave the windowsill a dust and started pulling off the bed sheets. I’d just had my grandson, six, to stay but, as I changed the bedding, it wasn’t echoes of his laughter I could still hear, but the giggles of my two sons, Andrew and Chris. Sitting on the bed, I looked up at Andrew’s framed football posters. But as it always is, my smile was soon replaced by overwhelming sadness, knowing their laughter would never again bounce off those walls. Andrew and Chris had shared the room growing up. When Andrew was 14, and Chris 12, my husband, Andy, and I would hear them laughing from the living room downstairs as they watched endless episodes of Laurel and Hardy. It felt like yesterday, the way…
