Bye Bye BBC, Hello Five

Saturday, February 9th, 2008

neighbours.jpgYes the time has come for the BBC to say its farewells to Ramsey Street. As of Monday Feb 11th, the iconic Aussie Soap Neighbours, will be aired from Five.

I have been a massive fan of Neighbours since the day it began. It had become part of my daily routine so believe me just because it has moved to channel Five, it does not mean they lose my viewing – well as long as it doesn’t change time slots!! I imagine this will be the case for most fans.

It appears that the BBC announced its withdrawal from the contest to sign the show it had screened for 21 years due to enormous episode price rise s that producers FremantleMedia wanted. It’s been reported that the cost had risen from £25,000 to £100,000 per episode.

Neighbours has followed in the footsteps of fellow soap Home and Away by moving to Five, so it’s likely that Five will create a daily super-soap hour, running Neighbours back to back with Home and Away. Let the battle for Aussie soap supremacy commence!!

heartpurse.jpgIt must be that Valentines feeling that’s in the air as I’ve got hearts on my mind!! It’s now just days to go before we celebrate being with that someone special, so what better way for our other halves to show how much we mean to them by presenting us with this ultra cute coin purse.

It’s the perfect luxury pressie, with jewel hard wearing leather for the exterior and contrasting signature soft-suede for the lining. It even has a high quality Swiss made gold/silver zip closure. It’s the perfect size to keep loose change in and will certainly be a welcome addition to my handbag.

Well I think Aspinal of London have definitely found an easy route to my heart with these beauties. You even have a choice of 4 colours including pink, purple and blue and cost £35.00 – why not go for one of each!! They could even double up a little party clutch – very cute!!

Over Her Dead Body

Thursday, February 7th, 2008

over-her-dead-body.jpgThis is one chick flick you have to go see! A successful and romantic comedy, that will make you shed a tear and laugh your head off if sarcasm is your thing.

Kate (Eva Longoria) is a bossy but endearing woman soon to be married to Henry (Paul Rudd) until an unfortunate accident occurs and she passes over to the other side. She then returns to Earth as a ghost to haunt a psychic, Ashley (Lake Bell) and prevent her from falling in love with her old fiancé. Eva Longoria shines in the hilariously funny character, much like her Desperate Housewives character Gabrielle.

A good long overdue romantic comedy in cinemas nationwide now. Visit the movie website for trailers and more information.

Gladiators Is Back

Wednesday, February 6th, 2008

gladiators3.JPGThis is the best news ever. One fond memory I always have of my childhood Saturday nights is watching Gladiators. I would spend all week looking forward to the occasion and I can’t believe its back for more!!

Its actually Sky One that has resurrected the cult classic and according to reports the search is now on to find 12 brand new UK Gladiators, 24 Contenders and 2 hosts to cover 10 hour-long episodes to be broadcast in its traditional Saturday prime time slot in May. Even Scottish referee, John Anderson looks to make a come back to the show. It is also believed that former footballer Ian Wright is in the frame to be the new male host.

The original show began way back in 1992 and apparently only 4 of the original gladiators remained until the last series in 1999. I don’t think any of the originals are coming back for the challenge!! It would appear that they are still looking for possible contenders, so if you think you have what it takes check out the official gladiator’s zone website,
