A couple of weeks we mentioned that Chris O’Dowd and his fiancee, Dawn Porter, would be contestants on Channel 4′s Million Pound Drop with Davina McCall.

They were playing to raise money for Breast Cancer Care, a charity close to Dawn’s heart. The episode featuring the couple aired on Saturday night and is available to view on 4od. If you haven’t watched the show yet we won’t spoil it by telling you what happened, so why not take a look now by clicking here? It’s nail biting stuff!

To find out more about Breast Cancer Care’s fantastic work take a look at their website.

Stubbing Out Problems, Blowing Out Candles…

23 Apr

Today marks the first birthday of Stubbing Out Problems – the unique agony aunt service provided by Rachel Stubbings set to become the basis of her debut Edinburgh show this year.

In the past twelve months, Stubbings has helped all manner of people with all manner of problems, including those who bear a striking resemblance to Alice Lowe, Stephen Evans and Tom Meeten.  To celebrate, Rachel has returned to her very first problem case to find out how he is coping one year on.
