Nadiya Hussain, the most famous former winner of ‘The Great British Bake Off’, has been announced as the co-host of the BBC’s new cooking show coming later this year to rival ‘Bake Off’ when it begins on Channel 4.
The 32 year old baker will be the face of BBC Two’s upcoming ‘The Big Family Cooking Showdown’, the cooking show which was announced back in October, and she’ll be co-hosting the programme with Zoe Ball.
Chefs Rosemary Shrager and Giorgio Locatelli will be the judges, in a format that will see 16 families inviting the four stars of the show into their homes where they’ll be hoping to show off their collective cooking skills. They will be whittled down to a four-family final over a series of 12 hour-long episodes.

With Matt Smith's time as the Universe's most famous time altering, Tardis-flying hero, Doctor Who, coming to an end, we've all been scratching our heads over the prospect of his potential successor. Could it be a man, a woman, a lime-green half-man-half-woman? The possibilities are limitless, however the reality will be made apparent sooner than some might expect, as the BBC intends on revealing the 12th Doctor during a live show being aired this Sunday (4 August) on BBC1.

The new Doctor Who will be unveiled on Sunday - but is it Peter Capaldi?
The new Doctor Who will be revealed in a special live show on Sunday (August 4, 2013) with 'The Thick of It' star Peter Capaldi the clear favourite with the bookmakers.
According to the BBC, the half-four show will be presented by Zoe Ball and is set to feature an interview with the current Doctor Who Matt Smith and executive producer Steven Moffat. The casting remains shrouded in secrecy, with only a handful of those working on the long-running BBC show privy to the selection.
"The decision is made and the time has come to reveal who's taking over the Tardis," Moffat said. "For the last of the Time Lords, the clock is striking twelve."

Awards shows are fun not only to see who wins each award, but also to see what the stars are wearing down the red carpet. We common folk may not be able to purchase the very same, but we can damn sure try to get close. This year's BAFTAS seem to make replicating red carpet styles easier than normal as it seems simplicity is key, and black is best.
The staple of every woman's wardrobe, the solid, stable and dependable LBD (little black dress) has been transformed. No longer little, these gowns hit the floor in a flourish of appropriate drama. X Factor's Caroline Flack turned up in a fairly understated gown, figure hugging in all the right places, with simple lines, the whole outfit is set off by the sheer lace long sleeves which turn what could have been a boring dress into something beautiful.
Laura Whitmore is rocking a jumpsuit with a slit down the front, and long sleeves, bridging the often difficult gap between sexy and sophisticated. She has accessorized her simple elegance with chunky gold cuffs and bright red lipstick. Zoe Ball's shiny dress is certainly the most unusual of the evening, but it fits her perfectly and she needs nothing but a great pair of earrings, a statement pair of rings and a what looks like an effortless hair style to make it work for her.

Tributes to Andy Williams have been led today by fellow crooner Tony Christie. Andy Williams has died, aged 84, following a year-long battle against bladder cancer. He was best known for his rendition of the song ‘Moon River’ but had many other hits, including ‘Raindrops Are Falling on My Head’ and ‘Music To Watch Girls By.’ Tony Christie told BBC News that Williams was “up there with Sinatra, Bennett,” referring to Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett. “I enjoyed a chat with him backstage at the Royal Albert Hall some years ago,” Christie added, “and he was a lovely man, very gentle…he was a pleasure to have met.”
Williams’ influence spread far and wide; many of the songs that he recorded and performed have become staples in the musical upbringings of several generations. The composer Don Black, who wrote ‘Born Free’ (another classic Williams track) said that he was the “ultimate professional… He was a great guy, he was very professional but didn't take himself too seriously. That type of performer doesn't exist anymore. It's gradually becoming the end of an era.”
It’s not just Williams’ contemporaries that have been paying tribute to the late singer though; Tim Burgess, the singer of The Charlatans, said “Andy Williams was a real smooth guy, that's for sure. Rest in peace, Andy.” The Radio One DJ Zoe Ball also posted a touching message on her Twitter page, to say “what a chap. May his star always shine bright.”
