The Most Desirable Woman In The World Is.. – What’s Hot and What’s Trending 12 February 2014

Emelia Clarke - 2014's Most Desirable Woman

Emelia Clarke – 2014’s Most Desirable Woman

The Most Desirable Woman In The World Is.. – the winner of AskMen’s Most Desirable Woman Poll for 2014 is Emelia Clarke from the tv series Game of Thrones.

The 26-year old English actress plays the part of Daenerys Targaryen, the Mother of Dragons, in the HBO fantasy series. Her character starts off as a meek and mild young woman whose father was the king before being overthrown in an uprising. As the series goes on Daenerys finds her strength and confidence increasing and becomes a powerful warrior princess.

Emilia has done very little other work apart from Game of Thrones so we know where her fanbase lies. Game of Thrones has become a hugely popular series worldwide and has seemed to pick up a similar demographic as series such as Star Trek and Doctor Who with the majority of hardcore fans being males over the age of 30.

Despite all of her high-profile shock twerking and nudity Miley Cyrus only just scraped into the list, coming in at a lowly 99th place. Although not having anything like the profile Countdown star and recent Strictly competitor, Rachel Riley made it to 92 on the list. Another Strictly class of 2013 girl, Susanna Reid, made it onto the list in 81st position. Susanna actually beat both Selena Gomez (89) and KIm Kardashian who we are guessing will not be thrilled to have only got to 87 in the poll.

Nigella Lawson was obviously not harmed by her recent troubles as far as the AskMen readers are concerned with the very yummy mummy celebrity chef placing at 70. Read the rest of this entry »

Doctor Who WIns Christmas Twitter Battle Plus Deleted Scene Video – as a new deleted scene from the show is released online it’s revealed that the special edition of Doctor Who was the most talked about UK tv show on Twitter this Christmas Day.

Christmas Day’s The Time Of The Doctor episode was of course when the 11th Doctor, as played by Matt Smith, regenerated into version number 12 of the Time Lord, as played by Peter Capaldi. The episode attracted the most traffic of the day on Twitter of any UK tv programme, firmly beating both Eastenders and also the day’s most watched programme, Mrs Brown’s Boys. Just during the time of the show being on air there were over 183k tweets sent with the hashtag #GoodbyeMattSmith being used almost 8k times.

It was a day of milestones for Doctor Who fans as they saw the youngest ever Doctor replaced by Peter Capaldi who at 55-years old has been criticised by some fans for being too old to play the part of the time travelling Doctor. Read the rest of this entry »

Glamour Women of the Year Awards – What’s Hot and What’s Trending 04 June 2013

Glamour Women of the Year Awards –  tonight saw a host of glamorous stars arriving at Berkley Square Gardens for this year’s Glamour Women of the Year Awards.

The big winner of the evening was singer turned fashion designer Victoria Beckham who turned up for the evening with a much younger man on her arm. As husband David was away in America she arrived on the arm of her 14-year old son Brooklyn who was well turned out for the event in a smart dark suit. Victoria broke with her usual choice for red carpet events and instead of wearing something from her own fashion label wore a black scallop style top and trouser outfit from rival Belgian designer Margiela.

Victoria walked away with the night’s biggest award when Christopher Bailey presented her with the Woman of the Decade award.

Other winners included Rita Ora who won the Best Solo Artist award and Miranda Hart who was presented with her Best Writer award by diminutive comedian Ronnie Corbett, one of her comedy heroes.

The Saturdays picked up the Best Band award and clearly all enjoyed being able to dress up for the evening. The usually ever reliable Mollie King from the band did get some negative comments for her choice of outfit for the evening with some labelling it as a little trashy as the red dress gave the impression of revealing a lot of flesh although on closer inspection you could see that there was a nude coloured layer that protected her modesty. The outfit also featured a strange-looking thin belt that made it look like she was wearing a tape measure. Read the rest of this entry »

Is Doctor Who Too Sexy? – What’s Hot and What’s Trending 08 April 2013

Doctor Who kissing Clara - Matt Smith and Jenna-Louise Coleman

Is Doctor Who Too Sexy? – the director of the first series of Doctor Who has said he feels the show has now become too sexual.

Waris Hussein directed An Unearthly Child back in 1963 with William Hartnell playing the part of the Doctor and the parts of his then three companions were played by Carole Ann Ford, Jacqueline Hill and William Russell. The four episodes of the first series were soon overshadowed by the next series which featured The Daleks.

Indian-born director Hussein says that he believes Doctor Who now has an element of sexuality in its programmes and said in an interview with the BBC ‘Why bring in this element when in fact you needn’t have it there?’

He went on to say how surprised he was that with the recent rebirth of The Doctor there had been a scene showing the Doctor “snogging” his new companion Clara Oswald, played by Jenna-Louise Coleman. Read the rest of this entry »

Jenna-Louise Coleman in Doctor Who: Asylum of the Daleks

Jenna-Louise Coleman makes an early appearance in Doctor Who – the actress surprised everyone this weekend when she made an earlier than expected appearance in the first episode of the new series of Doctor Who.

In Saturday’s episode Asylum of the Daleks Jenna-Louise played the part of Oswin Oswald, a woman who was captured and then “converted” by the Daleks.

Asylum of the Daleks picked up audience figures of 6.4 million viewers not only upsetting X Factor but also increasing the figure picked up by the previous series’ opening show.

26-year old Jenna-Louise was better known for her roles in Waterloo Road, Emmerdale and Titanic before she picked up the part as the latest Doctor Who sidekick. It was though before Saturday’s episode that Jenna-Louise’s character would make her debut in the Christmas episode of the sci-fi series.

Sources have suggested that when the new sidekick is first shown in her proper role that she will be called Clara Oswin. It is not yet known exactly what the relationship between the characters of Oswin Oswald and Clara Oswin will turn out to be but as is often the case the rumour machine is already working out some theories.

Jenna-Louise has already picked up a lot of positive reaction for her performance. This is no doubt helped by the fact that she has twice been nominated for the Sexiest Female award at the British Soap Awards.

One other feature that apparently helped Jenna-Louise to get the part as Matt Smith’s sidekick when she auditioned for the role was the fact that she was able to talk faster than the Doctor.

Steven Moffat, the main man behind the Doctor Who series, had the following to say about Jenna-Louise’s opening performance: “I hope you all got a nice surprise when Jenna popped up in Doctor Who several months early. If so, that surprise came to you courtesy of the frankly magnificent ladies and gentlemen of the press, and of the many Doctor Who forums and blogs too.”

“This show has been seen at four separate screenings, across four different countries and yet not one person gave one spoiler.”

“From all of us on Doctor Who, a heartfelt thank you for helping us tell our story.’ Miss Coleman will not appear in the series again until Christmas.”

Doctor Who is still very popular worldwide as the new episode Asylum of the Daleks premiered on ABC’s iview service (much like BBC’s iPlayer) immediately the episode had been shown on BBC this Saturday.

Jenna-Louise Coleman, Kym Marsh

Jenna-Louise Coleman – it has been revealed that the 25-year old actress is to be Doctor Who’s new companion.

The actress will take over the role from the Christmas special episode with Karen Gillan, who plays current Doctor Who sidekick Amy Pond, leaving after  her 2 series stint in the role.

Jenna is probably best known at present for playing the part of lesbian Jasmine Thomas in Emmerdale. She has also played the part of schoolgirl Lindsay James in Waterloo Road and will soon be seen as Annie Desmond in the 4 part mini-series of Titanic.

There should be some good on-screen chemistry between Jenna and Matt Smith as Doctor Who writer Steven Moffat said that  their partnership “came to life” during Jenna’s auditions. He said: “There was a moment I remember from the second time she came in, and they were auditioning together and they both looked frightened doing a Doctor Who scene, and it just was an instant poster.” Moffat is one of our top tv screenwriters, as well as writing Dr Who he also co-wrote the recent brilliant series of Sherlock on the BBC.

Little is known about the new character that Jenna will be playing, not even the character’s name. Writer Steven Moffat said:  “Who she’s playing, how the Doctor meets her, and even where he finds her are all part of one of the biggest mysteries the Time Lord ever encounters. Even by the Doctor’s standards, this isn’t your usual boy meets girl.”

Jenna will start filming the new Doctor Who series next weekend but we will have to wait until Christmas Day to first see her in the new role. There are 6 episodes of Doctor Who to be seen this year with Karen Gillan’s character being written out in the 5th episode. There are already another 8 more episodes planned for 2013.

Kym Marsh – the Coronation Street star is set to take on the role of Elsie Tanner, one of the icons of the show, in the new musical version “Street of Dreams.”

35-year old Kym is best known these days for her role as underwear factory manager Michele Connor in Corrie and the Pat Phoenix role should give her plenty to get her teeth into as she had the most colourful life during her time in the soap.

Talking of her new role in the musical Kym said: “The strong, determined and indomitable women have always defined Coronation Street right from the very first episode to the present day and Elsie Tanner will go down in history as one of the most gossiped about women in Weatherfield. She’s left some rather big stiletto shoes to fill but to have the opportunity to represent such an iconic character of yesteryear on a stage of this scale is an absolute honour.”

It is no surprise that she has been picked for a role in the musical as before she started in her acting career Kym was a singer, with her first appearance on tv coming in 2001 on ITV talent show Popstars where she made the final line-up for HearSay. She left the band in 2002 and her solo single Cry got to Number 2 in the UK Singles Chart.

Kym will share the part of Elsie Tanner with Jodie Prenger with Kym playing the 1960’s role and Jodie the 1980’s role. She is really looking forward to her new role and said: “The entire production is just gorgeous with infectious songs which stick in your head! The music is fabulous, the orchestration is phenomenal and the cast are truly amazing. To be asked to play such an amazing part in something that people will be telling their grandchildren about in years to come is just a dream.”

Also appearing in “Street of Dreams” are a number of other Coronation Street actors including Julie Goodyear (Bet Lynch), Bill Roache (Ken Barlow) and Kevin Kennedy (Curly Watts). The show will also star Paul O’Grady and is to depict various momentous moments from the show’s history.

Street of Dreams is due to open in May and is currently set to show in Manchester, Dublin, Belfast and Newcastle.
