Great British Bake Off's Kimberley Wilson Criticises "Cocksure" Portrayal After Abuse


Mary Berry Sue Perkins

Kimberley Wilson came pretty close to winning the BBC's The Great British Bake Off after appearing amongst the final three bakers fighting it out for the crown. In the end Kim's squishy picnic pie, her ham-fisted pretzel and her lack-lustre wedding cake saw competitor Frances Quinn steam ahead to claim the title of Britain's best amateur baker.

Psychologist Kimberley and fellow rival Ruby Tandoh were cast off by judges Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry who preferred Frances' intricate creations. Throughout the series, it seemed as though Kimberley was being set up to win: every perfect bake would emerge from the oven easily within the timeframe and would be placed with a glowing smile in front of the adoring judges.

Ben Daniels Is New Favourite For 'Doctor Who' Job: Could He Be The One?

Ben Daniels is the latest name to become the favourite to inherit the role of Doctor Who in the long-running BBC series. Very soon there'll be very few British male actors who haven't been rumoured to be taking over the controls to the TARDIS as the Merlin actor now has the most favourable odds at 6/1. With previous odds of 16/1, Chiwetel Ejiofor (Salt, American Gangster) now closely follows Daniels at 7/1.

Could Ben Daniels Take Over From Matt Smith As The New Doctor?

However, chances are the new Who may not be a male actor at all; there have been calls for the new Doctor to be female, which would mark a first for the series which has run since 1963.

Independent critic Tom Sutcliffe described the sitcom as "groan-inducing". The sitcom was set around a health and safety department of a local council in which social stereotypes were actively encouraged but seemed cliché and "old fashioned" (according to Daily Mail reviewer Christopher Stevens).

Dawn French Marries New Beau Mark Bignell


Dawn French Alison Moyet Richard Curtis Sue Perkins

Dawn French has married her partner Mark Bignell at a lavish eco-hotel, with Alison Moyet providing entertainment for the guests. The comedienne has been dating Bignell for just over a year, following the break-up of her marriage to fellow comedian Lenny Henry three years ago. The ceremony took place at hotel on the Cornish coast, The Daily Mail reports and guests included the screenwriter Richard Curtis, as well as Jennifer Saunders, Sue Perkins and Kathy Burke.

Scarlet Hotel, near Newquay, played host to the happy couple and their guests and the 37 bedrooms were reportedly decorated with custom-made floral jam jar arrangements of Lily of the valley and peonies. After the ceremony, the guests attended a firework display on the beach in the evening. A source told the newspaper “The wedding was up in the lounge with the white leather seats, looking out over the water. At about 9.30pm everyone went outside and watched fireworks from the hotel. They were on the beach below, big shells that went up to 400ft high in all different colours. Inside in the hotel garden there was a red heart, five foot wide and high, with the letters M and D in white in the heart. They all let off lanterns later. It was quite small – probably about 100 people there – but it was a proper celebrity wedding.”

French and Bignell began dating just over a year ago and the comedienne has claimed previously that he did not know who she was when they met. “I'm not boasting, but you'd actually have to have not watched television for the past 20 years to have avoided me, and he'd managed to do just that,” she joked.
