Keisha Thompson is an astonishing writer and performer. It’s not so much the poetic phrases and star-gazing metaphors that pepper her solo piece, Man on the Moon – though these are plentiful. It’s the delicate way that she handles big issues like mental health, family,...

We had a fantastic night with Pippa and her mates at her Hen Party in Liverpool this weekend! The girls really got involved coming in full costume and even bringing their own Kanye Pest! (Who sadly lasted about as long as our version...!)
Their questioning was, well, q...

 Congratulations to Laugh and Let Die actor Phil Chadwick who appeared on last night's Pointless. Well, we say congratulations, but maybe it should be commiserations as he crashed out the (very hard) first round!
