The Sun reports today that Masterchef hosts John Torode and Gregg Wallace are taking the internet by storm after a fan turned their soundbites from the show into a catchy techno song…

And it’s brilliant!

Here’s the rest of the report and the clip of the track… The track, which has been called MasterChef Synesthesia, was uploaded by Youtube user “swedemason” yesterday and has already received 1,000 hits in just a few hours.

The video for the track sees Gregg Wallace repeating: “I like the base, base, biscuit base, I like the buttery biscuit base. I like the base, base biscuit base.”

Sidekick John Torode then chips in appearing to rap: “Crunch base, nutty base,” before Gregg is back yelling: “Buttery biscuit base!”

Then Aussie John gets his own riff adding: “It needs more ooomp.”

Last night a source close to Gregg and John said: “They absolutely love the song, it’s so catchy and very funny.

“They’ve both got a great sense of humour and have been laughing themselves silly about it.”

What’s On TV report that Glee creator Ryan Murphy has revealed details of changes he intends to make to the existing cast. Here’s the story in full…

Glee creator Ryan Murphy has hinted it could be all-change to the cast. Some of the characters could be graduating in the next series, leading to speculation that stars like Cory Monteith (Finn), Lea Michele (Rachel) and Chris Colfer (Kurt) could be seeing their final season on the hit E4 TV show.

“The thing that I wanted to do and the cast wanted to do, we didn’t want to have a show where they were in high school for eight years. We really wanted it to be true to that experience. We thought it would be really cool if we were true to the timeline,” he told Ryan Seacrest on his radio show.

“I don’t think of it in terms of eliminating or replacing. Because I think the thing about this cast is people love them and they are incredibly talented. They’ve left sort of an indelible mark.”

Ryan revealed that Matthew Morrison (Glee leader Will Schuester) and Jane Lynch (cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester) will remain.

“We’ve got Matt and Jane who will stay and be the male and female lynchpins of the series,” he continued. Matthew has also said the cast could swap and change in the upcoming series.

“Last season, they introduced some new characters, and I think they’re going to continue to do that. Eventually you’ll probably start seeing some of the older characters go,” he said.

“I think they’re going to kind of keep that flow, but Jane and myself are going to be constants.”

Sky1 have announced that Royle Family stars Ralf Little and Craig Cash have reunited to star in a new sitcom entitled, ‘The Café’…

Which is some of the best news I’ve heard all day!! I can’t wait to see this new show!

Here’s the press release from Sky…

We’re proud to announce The Café, a new series written by and starring Ralf Little and Michelle Terry, and directed by BAFTA award-winning Craig Cash.

The Café is set in and around a café in Weston-Super-Mare run by generational trilogy Mary (June Watson), Carol (Ellie Haddington) and Sarah (Michelle Terry).

Acting as the social hub of the seafront town, the café sees all walks of life pass through and gives Sky1 HD viewers an honest portrayal of life in a typical British seaside resort.

Sarah is in her late twenties and has recently returned home from London as she attempts to pursue a writing career. Many of her old school adversaries still live in the area and are frequent visitors to the café. Richard (Ralf Little),

Sarah’s former childhood sweetheart is a care home assistant by day and a musician by night whose feathers are ruffled when fellow class-mate and former love rival, John (Daniel Ings), now a successful events manager in London, returns to Weston to visit his elderly mother.

Chloe (Phoebe Waller-Bridge) is Sarah’s oldest friend who works in the local hairdresser and always looks on the bright side of life.

Her father, Stan (David Troughton) is a frequent visitor to the café due in the most part to his fondness for Carol. Carol, however, has more pressing matters on her mind as Brenda Keily (Seeta Indrani), a local successful entrepreneur threatens to take her family business away.

Also resident in Weston-Super-Mare are Ava (Carolin Stoltz), the polish receptionist at the hairdresser and The Dobsons, regular customers at the cafe played by Brian Murphy and Marcia Warren.

Other regulars who drop by include ‘Big Issue Frank’ (Jack Roth) and Weston-Super-Mare’s very own living statue, Keiran (Kevin Trainor).

Little and Cash know each other well, with both proving their comedic chemistry in the award-winning The Royle Family, and we couldn’t be more excited to pair them back together.

Lucy Lumsden, Head of Comedy, Sky commented: “It’s been a delight to give new writers like Ralf and Michelle the chance to shine on Sky 1HD. We look forward to welcoming you in to The Café with its amazing cast and stunning direction from the multi-talented Craig Cash.”

Britain’s Got Talent star Nathan Wyburn has revealed his own unique tribute to the Queen on her 85th birthday, which is a portrait of Her Majesty made entirely out of marmite and toast!

Here’s what The Sun reports…

BRITAIN’S Got Talent’s Nathan Wyburn marked the Queen’s official 85th birthday – by making her Bread of State.

Nathan, who made the semi-final of the ITV1 show with his toast and Marmite portraits, used ten jars of the spread and 140 slices of bread for this weekend’s tribute.

It took the 21-year-old, of Ebbw Vale, South Wales, two hours to make it – and probably a lot longer to eat it.

The Sunday Mirror today reports that former Apprentice candidate Stuart Baggs has landed his own reality TV show which will air on Channel 4. Here’s the story…

Former Apprentice nitwit Stuart Baggs is to star in his very own TV reality show.

The 22-year-old telecoms entrepreneur – who calls himself Stuart The Brand – is to travel around the world trying to blag jobs.

He will be given £500 to start him off and then he will be followed by film crews as he looks for work using his famously cringeworthy catchphrases.

Bosses at Channel 4 – who have commissioned the series – believe he will charm viewers and become TV gold.

A source said: “He’ll have to find work anywhere he can. Even sweat shops, farms and building sites haven’t been ruled out.

“Stuart’s such a character that, love him or hate him, he will make great TV. And the fact he thinks he’s the world’s greatest salesman will be hilarious.”

Stuart, who came fifth in the 2010 BBC1 Apprentice series, last month appeared on Channel 4’s Celebrity Five Go To… where a group of TV stars compete to be the best holidaymaker.

Despite being the first to be voted off, he impressed producers enough for them to offer him his own show, which will begin filming in August.

Stuart, who lost out on the £100,000 Apprentice job to Stella English, 31, became famed for his boardroom soundbites such as: “I’m not a one-trick pony, I’m not a 10-trick pony – I’ve got a field of ponies waiting to literally run towards this (job).”

And on losing the show, he said: “What’s £100,000? That’s about £65,000 after tax. I wanted way more.”

As a fan of HBO’s True Blood, I’m lucky enough to get emails about the show from the network, and today, I had an awesome little Facebook app sent to me which enables you to put yourself and your friends right into the action!

Called ‘Immortalize Yourself’, all you need to do to star in True Blood is ‘Like’ their Facebook page – which you can go to by clicking here – then start your video.

You can make as many as you wish, putting different friends into different parts of the scenes.

Give it a go! It’s absolutely addictive!

Ooo I love a good spoiler, and today, The Daily Star reveals a new Corrie spoiler…

The paper reports that hot on the heels of the Street reeling over John Stape’s nutty antics, Gary Windass – who’s played by Mikey North – is set for another breakdown, but this time, it’s his girlfriend Izzy Armstrong who’s going to cop the brunt of it!

Here’s what the paper has to say…

DISABLED Izzy Armstrong is heading for a double dose of turmoil.

First, Izzy (Cherylee Houston, 35) is mugged at a cashpoint by a gang of yobs, who smash her wheelchair. Then paranoid boyfriend Gary Windass (Mikey North, 24) flips and refuses to get the chair fixed – so she becomes a prisoner in her home.

We can reveal that she’s eventually rescued by her dad Owen (Ian Puleston-Davies, 51) when he hears her screams.

Our mole said: “Gary is having another breakdown and doesn’t see Izzy’s mugging as a random event.

“He thinks someone’s out to kill her and thinks that if he doesn’t get her chair fixed then she can’t go anywhere.

“He’s not doing it out of malice, in his head he thinks he’s protecting her.”
