meet the new diana

With excitement levels running high ahead of The Crown returning to Netflix for a third series next month, we’re thrilled to see these first photos of rising star Emma Corrin playing Princess Diana, alongside Josh O’Connor as Prince Charles. Snapped in Spain while filming scenes for series four, the pair share an uncanny likeness to the royals, looking just the part as they recreate the married couple’s 1983 tour of Australia. Travelling around Malaga in a glorious replica of the Rolls-Royce Phantom V – a car bought by the Australian government in 1967 for royal visits – Emma still can’t believe she’s part of the Emmy and Golden Globe-winning drama. ‘I’ve been glued to The Crown and to think I’m now joining this incredibly talented acting family is surreal,’ says Emma, 23, whose…

david & sian’s fairy tale!

Once upon a time in TV land, Sky One bosses decided to wave a magic wand to turn the classic fairy tale Cinderella on its head and give it an all-star makeover. The result? Fun new original comedy Cinderella: After Ever After, which is set to be a sparkling jewel in the Christmas schedules! The anarchic 60-minute special begins where the storybook ends as Cinderella (played by Car Share’s Sian Gibson) has just got hitched to her Prince Charming (Britain’s Got Talent judge David Walliams). But poor Cinders soon realises married life isn’t all it’s cracked up to be when you have an image-obsessed, floss dancing, hip hop-rapping hubby. Just maybe, a glass slipper fitting your foot is not sufficient grounds to get wed… On top of that, Cinderella must do her best to…

tripping the light fang-tastic

“Halloween on Strictly is my favourite theme – I love playing dress-up!”CATHERINE TYLDESLEY ENTERTAINMENT Strictly Come Dancing SATURDAY & SUNDAY / BBC1 / TIMES VARY Get ready for some chilling cha-cha-chas, spirited sambas and fangtastic foxtrots in Strictly Come Dancing’s annual Halloween spooktacular!

4 fiendish questions

1 Who among the Strictly 2019 stars is most likely to play a Halloween prank? KARIM: Me! I’d get some jam doughnuts, make a hole with a straw to suck all the jam out, then refill the hole with mustard! Then someone comes along, bites into a doughnut and gets a nasty shock! CATHERINE: I hope Karim doesn’t play a prank on me! KELVIN: I’d say Chris Ramsey. I definitely think he’d be the type of guy to play a joke on you. 2 Which Strictly judge would you most like to take trick-or-treating? KELVIN: Probably Craig Revel Horwood because he matches the theme of Halloween. You want someone who can scare people, so Craig’s definitely the one for that! KARIM: With his personality and charisma, I think Bruno Tonioli would be such fun to go…
