Piers Morgan forced to deny he’s the pigeon lady from Home Alone 

Can you see the resemblance?

Published

on

Piers Morgan has been forced to deny he is the pigeon lady from Home Alone, once again. 

His Good Morning Britain co-host Susanna Reid brought up the accusations again, while producers showed a picture of him side-by-side with a picture of the character in question.

While Piers continued his denial, Susanna claimed they had found ‘proof’ he was the character all along. 

The show then switched to a clip from an episode of GMB in 2018 where Piers can bee seen covered in pigeons live on the show.

Susanna claimed this was the proof they needed to confirm he was the Pigeon Lady, but Piers was having none of it.

Pretty much everyone is convinced it actually is him and the actor who plays the character, Brenda Fricker says the whole thing is hilarious. 

One person wrote: ‘Wasn’t Trump in Home Alone 2, is that how you met?’

A second said: “This is the funniest thing ever.”

A third pointed out another similarity: “That’s the love child of  @piersmorgan and  @JeremyClarkson”, while another expressed concern for Brenda saying ‘Not sure how the wonderfully talented Brenda Fricker would feel about that’.

What do you think, can you see the resemblance?

The BBC’s coverage of Prince Philip’s death has received a ‘record number’ of complaints, according to reports.

It’s been reported that the broadcaster has been hit with more than 100,000 complaints in regards to its coverage of the Duke of Edinburgh’s death.

This would be a record in British television history, with the BBC creating a dedicated form online for viewers to voice their dissatisfaction.

The broadcaster cleared its schedules to cover Prince Philip’s death on Friday, and according to The Sun it has now received more than 100,000 complaints.

This is a record breaking number, beating the previous high of 63,000, which was again from the BBC when they screened Jerry Springer: The Musical back in 2005.

A BBC spokesperson said: “We are proud of our coverage and the role we play during moments of national significance.”

The broadcaster wiped its schedules on both BBC One and BBC Two to run mirrored programmes about the Duke following his death, while BBC Four displayed a message urging people to switch over for a ‘major news report’.

Line of Duty fans will love ITV’s new psychological thriller Too Close

Did anyone catch it last night?

Published

ITV

If you’re not sure what to do with yourself while waiting for the next episode of Line of Duty, then ITV has got you covered.

The broadcaster’s new three-part drama series Too Close began last night, with episode two airing tonight.

Starring Emily Watson and Denise Gough, ITV’s gripping psychological thriller was written by author and actress Clara Salaman and directed by Sue Tully (Line of Duty).

The series was inspired by the novel of the same name, which was published under Clara’s pseudonym Natalie Daniels.

The mini-series premiered last night, Monday April 12th, and it focuses on the dangerous relationship between a forensic psychiatrist, Dr Emma Robertson (Emily Watson), and her patient.

Dr Robertson is assigned to work with Connie Mortenson (Denise Gough), a woman accused of an awful crime connected to the death of two young children – however, she claims she can’t remember a thing.

While the two women find themselves becoming dangerously close, it appears Dr Robertson might be ‘destroyed’ in the process of uncovering the truth.

Besides Watson and Gough, the series also stars Thalissa Teixeira, James Sives, Risteard Cooper, Chizzy Akudolu, Eileen Davies and Nina Wadia.

Too Close began last night on ITV, with the next episode airing tonight at 9pm and the following episode at the same time on Wednesday.

You can catch up on episode one here.

Tipping Point is on the hunt for Mancunians to star in the new series.

The ITV game show is looking for contestants for series 12, so if you know anyone who’d be perfect for it then let them know.

Hosted by Ben Shephard, Tipping Point gives people the chance to win thousands of pounds.

ITV says: “We are searching for fun, confident people who enjoy quizzing and would like the opportunity to win thousands of pounds using a combination of ​skill, judgement and chance.”

ITV

The hit show airs between 4pm and 5pm every weekday, and sees contestants answer questions on general knowledge, films, politics and other subjects before taking on the ‘tipping point’ machine.

Just like the coin pusher machines seen in the arcades of Blackpool and other seaside towns across the North West, contestants drop counters to win money.

People earn money from the silver counters which are worth £50, while ‘mystery counters’ and the £10,000 jackpot counter can also boost their cash pile.

ITV

Applicants must be 18 or over, and the deadline for applying is Friday May 7th – the last date for postal applications is Monday May 3rd.

To apply, either use ITV’s online application form here or email apply@rdftelevision.com for postal entries.
