The ITV game show Who wants to be a millionaire? is back for a short run, with a new host, and new elements.

It's all being filmed just around the corner at the studios at dock 10 where they also film shows like The Voice, Jeremy Kyle and Match of the Day.

Sir Paul McCartney paid tribute to his parents as he was made a Companion of Honour for services to music.

The Beatle, 75, was joined by wife Nancy Shevell at Buckingham Palace on Friday morning as he received the honour from the Queen more than 20 years after his knighthood.

In a written statement to the Press Association, Sir Paul said: "I see this as a huge honour for me and my family and I think of how proud my Liverpool mum and dad would have been to see this."

His former bandmate and only other living Beatle Sir Ringo Starr received a knighthood earlier this year.

Behind the scenes as Emmerdale crosses the Pennines

As we all know the rival soap on ITV to Coronation Street is Emmerdale.

It's usually filmed in Yorkshire but a few weeks ago it crossed the Pennines and came over here to the North West.

The cast and crew were filming on location in Chorley and, you've guessed it, there's a big storyline involved.

Our entertainment correspondent Caroline Whitmore went along to find out what actually happens in the episode, which goes out tonight:

Fans of Coronation Street will have the chance to wander the soap's famous cobbles as the TV set is opening to the public.

Guided tours will operate throughout the year on Saturdays on the external sets of the programme at MediaCityUK in Manchester.

Fans will be able to see the cobbled Coronation Street set, as well as Rosamund Street and the new extended Victoria Street set, which includes a tribute to the Manchester terror attack victims.
