James Nesbitt John Thomson Fay Ripley Helen Baxendale Hermione Norris

Thirteen years after it was removed from British TV screens, the popular drama-comedy ‘Cold Feet’ will be returning for a sixth series, with many of the original cast signed up.

The re-boot of the ITV series has been rumoured for the last few months after The Sun reported in August that the network had commenced talks with the core cast members. James Nesbitt, Hermione Norris, John Thomson, Robert Bathurst and Fay Ripley will be returning to the series that charted the ups and downs of three 30-something couples, and was often vaunted as the British answer to 'Friends'.

Cold Feet Star Confirms Reunion Talks


John Thomson Helen Baxendale

The comedy-drama ran for five seasons before ending in 2003, and earlier this month (Sep15), a report suggested producers are keen to get the cast back together.

Now John Thomson, who starred in all five series, has confirmed negotiations are ongoing, but it is not yet a done deal.

"It's not 100 per cent... it's subject for contract," John tells Digitalspy.co.uk. "It might start next year. It's likely, but the deals aren't done, because it's such a large ensemble cast. I don't know how it (the news) came out without it being set in stone. I would love to do it... We're older and there's different problems to deal with, and society too. I just really hope it's a success."

Helen Baxendale Rules Out Cosmetic Surgery


Helen Baxendale

British actress Helen Baxendale has ruled out ever altering her image with cosmetic surgery or wrinkle-freezing Botox jabs.

The former Friends star has no plans to copy her Hollywood rivals by attempting to hold on to her youthful looks, insisting she doesn't want to set a bad example for her 15-year-old daughter Nell.

Baxendale tells Britain's Weekend magazine, "I don't like the idea of putting a deathly toxin inside my body. I don't want to look weird. I want to age the way that life makes you age, because there's beauty in autumn and winter and I think people forget that. Also, I wouldn't want my child to see that I considered being attractive synonymous with youth. For me, you have operations when you're ill."

Shirley Maclaine Helen Baxendale Lesley Nicol

Shirley Maclaine had a ''tiny tear in her eye'' when she left 'Downton Abbey'.

The American actress - who plays the role of the Countess of Grantham's mother in the ITV series - did not struggle settling into her new role alongside an established cast and was sad to say goodbye at the end of filming, her co-star Lesley Nicol revealed.

Lesley, better known to audiences as Mrs. Patmore, told BANG Showbiz: ''Whoever you are, coming into a show that's already established, it is quite hard - I don't care who you are! Unless your ego is massive.

Helen Baxendale would ''consider'' taking part in a 'Friends' movie.

The British actress - who played Ross' second wife Emily in the US sitcom - still finds it ''incredible'' that she had a major role in the TV show, which also starred Courteney Cox, Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, David Schwimmer and Matthew Perry.

She said: ''Would I appear in a 'Friends' film? I'd definitely consider it. I find it incredible that I did that. It's peculiar and surreal for me and I'm amazingly proud. It feels like not really part of anything to do with me.''

Baxendale Has No Regrets Over Snubbing Friends Stardom


Helen Baxendale Friends

British actress Helen Baxendale has no regrets about turning her back on Hollywood after shooting to international stardom on Friends, likening fame to "a gilded prison".

The Cold Feet star, 41, appeared in 16 episodes of the hit U.S. comedy as posh Brit Emily Waltham, who married David Schwimmer's character Ross Geller and subsequently divorced him.

Baxendale bowed out of the sitcom to concentrate on her pregnancy and family, and admits she wasn't impressed with her first taste of international stardom.

She tells Britain's Daily Mail, "I had a little glimpse of what fame holds, and I decided it held a load of nothing. It contained nothing that mattered. Some people can deal with that well; it sits on their shoulders fine. But it wasn't for me.

Helen Baxendale's Fright Over Baboon Visit


Helen Baxendale

Actress Helen Baxendale was given a fright as she filmed her new U.K. drama series in South Africa when a baboon walked onto the set.

The former Friends star ran from the beast during the shoot for British TV show Kidnap and Ransom, but came out of hiding when the monkey settled down and watched the TV cameras rolling.

She tells Britain's The Sun, "We were filming and I had to hide behind a tree. I became aware of a presence. I turned around and there was a baboon.

"Just before it happened, someone had told me how dangerous they are. So I stayed very still until it wandered on the set and sat and watched everyone film the scene."

Anonymous Review


OK
Based on the long-mooted Oxfordian theory about the true authorship of Shakespeare's plays and poems, this film undermines its own point by over-egging the story. An over-complicated script and arch performances don't help the case.

In 16th century London Edward (Ifans), Earl of Oxford, has a passion for writing, which is forbidden by the puritan leaders of the day. So he passes his anonymous work to playwright Ben Jonson (Armesto), who allows actor William Shakespeare (Spall) to take the credit. Edward's life is inextricably linked with Queen Elizabeth (Redgrave): they were lovers several years ago (played by Bower and Richardson), and the political fallout is still being controlled by William Cecil (Thewlis) and his son Robert (Hogg).

Baxendale's Knifeman Scare In South Africa


Helen Baxendale

British actress Helen Baxendale was left fearing for her life when she faced a knifeman in South Africa while filming a new TV thriller.

The former Friends star was in Cape Town working on upcoming British drama Kidnap and Ransom earlier this year (10) when the attacker confronted her - but she managed to flee to safety.

Baxendale tells Britain's The Sun, "We were warned not to go out but we did. Somebody showed me a knife and we ran. I was really scared. I thought, 'What an idiot, not to have heeded the warning'.

"South Africa is an amazing country but obviously there are still a lot of problems."
