Netflix announces The Sinner series three release date

It looks creepy…

Published

on

Fans of the mystery-thriller The Sinner have waited almost a year since the last series, but Netflix has finally confirmed the date of the latest offering. 

The third installment of the hit show will be coming to screens from June 19th in the UK, a lot sooner than fans had first thought. 

The show is executive produced by Jessica Biel and follows the story of Detective Harry Ambrose played by Bill Pullman. 

Ambrose investigates a routine traffic incident in New York but quickly realises nothing is as it seems, and there is something much more serious and sinister about the case. 

The new series features Matt Bomer who fans might recognise from American Horror Story, playing Jamie Burns, an unsuspecting resident of Dorchester whose dark past comes to life in the investigation.

The new series promises to be the most shocking yet. The trailers have been released showing Jamie Burns in the aftermath of the crash, tormented by his past life.

Gogglebox’s Tom Malone Jr responds to rumours about why he left the show

He’s now left the show

Published

Channel 4

Tom Malone Jr confirmed yesterday that he’s leaving Gogglebox, after becoming a firm favourite on the show alongside his very Mancunian family.

Tom took to Twitter to announce that he is leaving Gogglebox for good, thanking Channel 4 and Studio Lambert for his time on the popular show.

The 26-year-old is part of the much-loved Malone family from Manchester, who joined Gogglebox back in 2014, with dad Tom Senior and mum Julie starring alongside Tom Jr and Shaun.

Tom Sr and Julie have two more children, Lee and Vanessa, although the older siblings have never appeared on the show.

While Tom Jr has officially departed the show, he confirmed that his family will remain on Gogglebox for future seasons – much to everyone’s delight.

He announced the news on Twitter, saying: “So after six years it’s finally time to put down the remote and say goodbye to Gogglebox.

“I’ve loved every minute and I’m eternally grateful to Channel 4 and Studio Lambert for allowing me to be a part of the show. But new opportunities are knocking on the door and it’s time to explore them.

“I look forward to enjoying the show as a viewer and not having to worry about having said something stupid! P.S. Don’t worry my parents and my brother will still be on the show to keep you guys entertained every Friday.”

He later returned to Twitter to respond to rumours about why he left the show, tweeting: “Just to clear a few things up: I didn’t ‘Quit’ the show… I left on good terms.

“My girlfriend never even wanted to be on the show and had nothing to do with me leaving. I wasn’t scared to say something stupid.

“Anyone spouting these narratives are spreading fabrications.”

While Tom has yet to reveal what new opportunities he’ll be exploring, his dance career is on the up so there’s likely a very bright future ahead of him, and we wish him all the best.

Gogglebox is returning to our screens for a new series tonight at 9pm on Channel 4.

Married at First Sight is looking for single Mancunians for the new UK series

Fancy it?

Married at First Sight UK is looking for single Mancunians for the new series!

The Australian version of the show has been providing much entertainment for many throughout lockdown with shocking reveals and endless drama.

Now, the series is returning to the UK – and you can apply! 

Normally, in the past five series of Married at First Sight UK, the programme follows the couples separately on their journey to meeting each other. Then, we follow their first meeting on the aisle, their honeymoon and finally if they decide to stay married. 

However, the sixth season is set to be a little different. 

Leaning more towards the Australian format, the couples will no longer take part in a legally binding marriage and instead have a commitment ceremony. 

The new series will also move to E4 from Channel 4 and undergo a huge makeover. 

A statement by E4 explained: “Following the Australian format, rather than legal marriages, the couples will make a lifelong commitment to one another at a glamorous ceremony, overseen by a wedding celebrant, that includes guests, bridal gowns, dancing, speeches and cake.

“After the ceremony and celebrations are over, true love is well and truly put to the test, as they embark on a luxurious honeymoon, before moving in with each other AND their fellow couples.

“Relationships will be put under the microscope, by fellow brides and grooms at weekly dinner parties – as well as by the experts, at recurring commitment ceremonies, where couples choose whether they want to stay in or leave the process.

“All this and more will build to a dramatic series finale: glossy, high-stakes vow renewals, in which each couple must decide if they will recommit to their partner or go their separate ways.”

Lee McMurray, Commissioning Editor, Factual Entertainment, said: “I’m thrilled to be refreshing one of the portfolio’s most popular brands for E4, bringing extra scale and ambition to what is already one of the most audacious and provocative experiments on television, and delivering what we hope will be the most exciting series yet.”

If you’re single and willing to take on the thorough application process which includes a headshot and video, you can apply here.

Applications are closing soon so be quick!

The GMB doctor, Dr Hilary Jones, has responded to the claims from a genetic epidemiology professor that restrictions on large gatherings will be in place for a ‘few years’.

Good Morning Britain’s Dr Hilary has responded to speculation that mass gatherings such as weddings and festivals won’t happen for a number of years. 

It comes after Tim Spector, professor of genetic epidemiology at King’s College London, said on Sunday (February 7th) that restrictions on large gatherings are likely to be in place for ‘the next few years’.

Health editor of GMB and GP Dr Hilary said he thinks that would be a ‘worse case scenario’.

He told hosts Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid: “We need to get the R-rate down.

“Currently we’re still seeing tens of thousands of new cases found every day, and that’s just the ones we’re testing, what about the ones we’re not testing?

“So whilst the R-rate is high, we’re encouraging new variants to emerge.

“The more virus that is out there, the more viral load amongst the population, the greater the chance of new variants and new challenges requiring more vaccines.

“Social isolation is the only way to prevent the virus spreading and whilst we have high numbers we have to be pragmatic and we have to say that mass gatherings are not a great idea.”

Speaking in an interview on Times Radio, Professor Tim Spector explained that the days of mass gatherings ‘are gone’ for several years. 

He said: “I can’t see us suddenly having another Cheltenham Festival with no regulations again, I can’t see us having massive weddings with people coming from all over the world, I think for the next few years those days are gone.

“I think we should still continue to do the easy things, keeping our distance from each other in public, masks, hand washing etc, these things don’t cost really anything to do.”

He added: “I think we need to get used to that and that will allow us to do the things we really want to do more easily and more readily.”
