  • WRIGHT OR WRONG?

    WHEN Mark Wright told Towie bosses he wouldn’t be returning for the show’s ten-year anniversary series, it is fair to say they were a little bit miffed.

    In an exclusive interview, Amy said: “Towie is a part of our lives. It is how we got famous.

    TOWIE basically made us all, so I think it’s only fair we come back to support the show’s ten-year anniversary. Without Towie, Mark and the others wouldn’t be where they are now.

    “Mark is a friend of mine but I think we have to remember where we have come from. The show has achieved so much. It has given us all amazing opportunities and lives.

    “It is a shame Mark has chosen not to celebrate and be a part of that. It is the least we can do. Everyone loved Mark. He was known as the King of Essex. He’ll always be a huge part of the show and I’m shocked he’s chosen not to be there.”

  • JOHN CLEESE SAYS MONTY PYTHON WOULD NOT BE COMMISSIONED IF PRODUCED TODAY

    Monty Python would not be commissioned for TV if it was produced today, John Cleese has claimed.

    The comedy troupe's surrealist sketch show Monty Python's Flying Circus originally aired between 1969 and 1974 on the BBC.

    Speaking on BBC's The One Show, the 80-year-old actor and comedian said TV executives did not know what they were doing.

    He said they needed to hand over creative control to artists instead of making decisions based on what “marketing people” said viewers wanted.

    Asked whether the work of Monty Python would be commissioned today, Cleese replied: “No, I don't think it would.

    “The problem with television and television executives has always been that they think they know what they are doing.”

    He added: “They don't know what they are doing and they won't trust people, so they try to control the shows despite the fact they can't actually write… or act themselves.

    “The key thing is to choose people you think are really good – get Eddie Izzard or Steve Coogan – and say to them: 'What would you like to do?'

    “Not come up with some executive idea that you think might actually be what the marketing people say people want.

    “It's got to come out of a real sense of confidence and saying to good performers and good writers: 'What would you like to do? What would make you feel good'.

    “Then you will get something. Otherwise it will be like everything else.”

    A reality TV star wrapped her legs around a male passenger and demanded sex because she was “horny”.

    A source told The Sun: “These household names are monitored by the people who serve them at 30,000ft.

    “Their behaviour – both good and bad – is there for all to see. The events are truthfully told and perhaps will make any rabble-rousers think twice about their inflight behaviour.”
