‘we’ve been in their shoes…’

LITTLE MIX: THE SEARCH NEW SAT & SUN / BBC1 / TIMES VARY / EPS 1-2 of 10 / ENTERTAINMENT Believe it or not, it’s nine years since Little Mix formed on The X Factor and made history as the first group to win the ITV talent show. Now the biggest girl band on the planet, the quartet – Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Jade Thirlwall, Perrie Edwards and Jesy Nelson – have won countless awards, notched up four No.1 singles and sold over 50 million records. Over the last year, they have also been busy working on a brand-new project: finding the next generation of pop idols in Little Mix: The Search, which begins on BBC1 this weekend.

the search…

THE BEGINNING Little Mix kicked off The Search last October when they took to Instagram to ask hopefuls to try out. Thousands applied online and those who most impressed them were invited to audition face-to-face. THE CATEGORIES Perrie, Jesy, Leigh-Anne and Jade then split their favourites into six categories: boy band, girl dance group, girl vocal group, mixed group, vocal and instrument band, and rap/R&B group. THE AUDITION In this week’s first episode, the spotlight is on the boy-band category. The singers who impress most will head into the Band Room, then be put through their paces by Little Mix in a rehearsal. Those who don’t cut it are eliminated before the next round. THE CONCERT The remaining boys take to the stage and perform concert-style in front of Little Mix and an audience to determine who…

justice for banaz

HONOUR NEW MON & TUE / ITV / 9PM / EPS 1-2 of 2 / DRAMA When DCI Caroline Goode began searching for missing Banaz Mahmod in January 2006, she hoped her team would find the 20-year-old Londoner alive.

Three months after she was reported missing by her boyfriend, Rahmat Suleimani, Banaz’s body was found in a suitcase in the West Midlands, miles from where she lived in south-west London. Thanks to the dedication and persistence of…

‘this crime cuts across cultures’

The real DCI Caroline Goode retired in 2014 after 33 years of service, but still trains police officers and other front-line workers about so-called honour-based abuse. ‘A drama like this is a great platform for talking about this subject, one I’m keen to raise awareness about,’ says Caroline. ‘Honour-based violence affects a lot of young women and some men. It’s pretty much overwhelmingly women victims we see in this country, and honour-based violence cuts across all cultures and religions. ‘Banaz’s death has been a catalyst for change within police forces. There has been so much training – I’ve provided a lot of it myself. The police are far from perfect and they recognise there is more work to be done, but it’s incomparable to the knowledge we had back in 2006. ‘That said,…
