Made in Chelsea: Sometimes only Mark Francis being posh and saying 'darling!' a lot will do

'But we're in the Royal Borough!'

Ooh look, it's a video of Mark-Francis from Made in Chelsea that purports to contain 'his best bits'.

And whatever happened to his friend Gabilicious anyway?

Doctor Who 50th anniversary: Can the fans' high expectations be met?

It must be tough running Doctor Who, and basically being Steven Moffat, especially in the show's 50th anniversary year. Not only does he have to actually run the show, but he also has to deal with The Fans - and the weight of their expectations for how the show will mark its special birthday. So we will have our wildest dreams fulfilled or be left with a crushing sense of disappointment?

People Like Us: Old ladies pee in bins but is the show burdened by the 'reality' tag?

Watching grainy CCTV footage of a woman in a launderette weeing into a large black bin, accompanied by the dry commentary of the launderette's owner ("Then she has to the cheek to wipe her hands!"), is both a funny and a shocking moment, but it's not suggesting everyone who visits Wishy Washy launderette uses the bin as a toilet - not least because the launderette would soon run out of customers, and the bin is not in possession of a flush.

Karen, the launderette's owner, is playing back the footage for the tv cameras, and she says she's never met so many weirdos since she started running the launderette six years ago.

You can easily believe it, but at least the mystery urinator had the relative decency to use the bin rather than the floor.
