He's back! Our favourite grumpy doc returns for a brand new series. Martin stopped by to talk to the loose ladies about playing Doc Martin, residing in the beautiful Port Isaac for half of the year and his love of dogs. Plus, just what is a Cloonatic?
Doc Martin returns for a new series on Monday at 9pm on ITV.
Comedian Bill Bailey is encouraging smokers to take part in this year’s Stoptober and quit for 28 days from 1st October.
Those who quit smoking for 28 days are five times more likely to ditch the habit for good.
The funnyman is also hitting the road with his hugely successful Limboland tour.
Money, popularity, career... nothing is more important than the children
After originally finding fame in EastEnders in 1998 playing Melanie Healy, whose Millennium Eve marriage to Ian Beale attracted more than 20 million viewers, Tamzin Outhwaite has never struggled to find work after quitting the mainstream soap.
In 2013 she joined the hugely popular BBC drama, New Tricks, playing DCI Sasha Miller.
It’s the end of an era. After 12 years, the detectives of the BBC1 drama New Tricks will be tackling their final cases. Tamsin said, "I think it's done. 12 series, it's quite a long time... it's going out on a high."
Tamsin has decided to take a gap year at the age of 44. She said that she finished college in 1990 and has been lucky to not have a break since. But quality time with her daughters called and she is currently 'three months into my gap year that I never had.'
New Tricks is on tonight, 9pm BBC One.
