Apprentice 2014 Episode 1 Review: Chiles Cartwright’s t shirt drama as Steven & Sarah stand out!

Apprentice 2014 candidates

I for one am a big fan of the show and watching the candidates boast about their prowess got me excited for the new run. However, even I have to admit that the one big change to the format doesn’t quite work in the way the producers probably thought it would.

Educating the East End review: Jenny Smith takes the lead in Frederick Bremer

Ms Smith

There’s no denying that one of the TV highlights of last year was Channel 4’s Educating Yorkshire. The documentary, which shone a light on the good work that our teachers do on a daily basis, was honoured with a BAFTA nomination and a National TV Award. Due to this success nobody was overly shocked when it was announced that a third school would be chosen to be part of a new Educating series. That school in question was Walthamstow’s Frederick Bremer School who face the pressure of living up to their predecessors in Educating the East End.

Opinionated Katie Hopkins piles on 3 stone for obesity documentary!

The Katie Hopkins Project

Controversial loud mouth, Katie Hopkins, has reportedly gained an extra 3 stone in weight in order to gain first-hand experience of obesity for a new documentary series.
