Tipping Point fans ‘mute’ ITV quiz show as they plead for player to stop ‘bizarre’ habit

Tipping Point airs weekdays at 4pm and is hosted by Good Morning Britain star Ben Shephard, 45, and during yesterday’s episode, he was back on hand to oversee proceedings. With four willing participants ready to get their hands on some cash, they all seemed geared up to knock each other out of the ITV quiz show. However, there was one player who led viewers to mute their television sets as they couldn’t cope with what they were hearing.

Standing opposite the giant coin machine, the four contestants introduced themselves before getting into the game.

Amongst the players was Adele, who was hoping she could make it all the way to the final round and walk away with a jackpot prize.

She got off to a flying start as she guessed her first question correctly but then had to choose which drop zone she wanted to put her counter into.

After making her decision, the coin was dropped into the machine but as it did, the player seemed to be demonstrating a rather unusual noise, leaving viewers feeling very awkward.

Adele seemed to be humming, but those watching at home thought the noises were rather similar to those enjoying pleasurable experiences.

The contestant also got rather excited as when the counter was dropping down to the slider at the bottom of the machine, she could be heard shouting: “Be flat, be flat!

“Oh, wow!” she declared as the coin dropped into the position she wanted, leaving her rather elated as her cash jackpot increased.

Taking to Twitter, one wrote of the noises the player was making: “All these sex moans from them is too much already #tippingpoint.”

I’ve had to mute #TippingPoint

Another posted on the social media platform: “I’ve had to mute #TippingPoint but I can still hear Adele’s f***ing voice in my head.”

Whilst a third commented as they felt uncomfortable from hearing the contestant’s noises: “Adele is going to be one of those contestants you want out of the game as soon as possible! #TippingPoint.”

The player was extremely fortunate as she reached the final round of the show but didn’t risk playing the jackpot counter.

Instead, she stuck with her £3,900 sum and even won a mystery holiday after getting her hands on one of the counters marked with a question mark.

Ben agreed Adele had made the right decision, with the contestant telling the host she’d had a blast during her time on the programme.

Earlier this month, one player made history by winning an astonishing amount of money during the jackpot counter round.

Clive walked away with a double cash prize of £20,000 after the machine worked in his favour and notched up his initial sum.

This was a first for the programme, as no-one had ever managed such a feat and it was clear he didn’t expect the result.

Clive hugged host Ben as he shed a tear, unable to believe his luck and the presenter was just as bewildered.

After seeing the double jackpot counter fall successfully into the slot, the Good Morning Britain star said: “Clive, you’ve done it!

“I can’t believe you have done it!” he added, before going on to admit he’d never seen such an achievement.

“Clive, I have stood in front of this machine over a thousand times, the only time that has happened was when it was on a tray that didn’t get taken!”

Tipping Point airs weekdays at 4pm on ITV.

Emmerdale spoilers: Paddy Kirk left devastated as Chas flees with baby Eve?

Since his release from prison, Marlon Dingle (played by Mark Charnock) has been suffering with his mental health after being wrongly accused of the murder of Graham Foster (Andrew Scarborough). But last week Marlon suffered a heart attack due to the stress and Paddy Kirk (Dominic Brunt) rushed him to hospital, but Paddy left baby Eve in the car and social services got involved but could Chas (Lucy Pargeter) be about to take her away from him for good?

Marlon hasn’t found it an easy transition coming back to the village after being locked up. 

Not only did he find out his daughter April (Amelia Flanagan) was being bullied because of his arrest, he also found out Charity Dingle (Emma Atkins) had information that could have freed him sooner. 

But last week it all got to much and the Woolpack chef had a heart attack whilst out with his good friend Paddy. 

Paddy rushed him to the hospital, but he accidentally left baby Eve in the car, after getting caught up in the panic.


  • Emmerdale fans spot Marlon Dingle medical blunder on ITV soap

A passerby found the little on trapped in the car and immediately called the police.

But now social services are threatening Chas and Paddy’s future with their daughter. 

Could Chas be ready to flee the village in the hopes of keeping her daughter safe?

Chas was left furious with Paddy for leaving Eve in the car, but this week Chas began to worry Eve would be taken away from them for good. 

As viewers will remember, Paddy and Chas lost their baby daughter Grace in 2018. 

She died shortly after being born, which has made Chas even more protective over Eve and her safety. 

But, if Chas can’t forgive Paddy for putting Eve’s life in danger, then what does the future hold for them?

Last night, Chas found a note from Paddy saying he couldn’t be around anymore.

It went from bad to worse when social services turned up, a meeting which both Paddy and Chas had forgotten about.

Chas pretended Paddy was just out, but social services weren’t convinced and told the mum that they would have to return sometime soon. 

Paddy eventually returned, but fans were furious with the way in which Chas tore into him for leaving her with the meeting, fearing they have lost Eve for good. 

Will she make the drastic decision to leave the village for good with Eve, leaving Paddy devastated?


  • Emmerdale fans infuriated by Chas Dingle’s behaviour towards Paddy

After last night’s episode, fans immediately took to Twitter to express their anger. 

One viewer tweeted: “Oh for god’s sake Chas, wind it in a bit, you’re starting to get really boring.”

Another added: “It’s NOT like Paddy purposely left Evie in the car alone is it? It was a total accident that literally could of happened to anyone, even Chas. They both totally forgot Social Services would be calling after all, not just him.”

And a third added: “Poor Paddy can’t do right by Chas it seems!!!”

Will Paddy be able to make it up to Chas before it’s too late, or will they lose Eve?
Emmerdale continues on ITV tonight at 7pm.

Coronation Street spoilers: Gemma Winter to lose quads after leaving them in danger?

Viewers watched in horror earlier this week as Gemma Winters (played by Dolly Rose Campbell) locked herself out of the house, leaving the quads inside and in danger. In upcoming scenes, Bernie Winters (Jane Hazelgrove) will try and force Gemma to get help after she admitted her struggle. Could Gemma have her children taken away from her if she admits to a doctor she is nearly at rock bottom? 

Gemma was visited by the health visitor on Monday, who told the mum of four that Cleo had lost weight and needed more milk. 

The already struggling mum was left shaken but things were made worse when the health visitor started asking Gemma more and more questions about her state of mind. 

Gemma struggled to hold it together and when the nurse left, she went out into the yard to calm herself down.

However, the door closed and locked behind her and the panicked mum started trying to bang the door down.

Bernie turned up just in time and forced the door down, promising the babies were fine. 

Gemma broke down and told her mum she was an unfit mother, revealing she nearly killed the babies, after drinking.

But, in upcoming scenes, Bernie is going to try and force Gemma to get help from a doctor.
Could Gemma be about to lose her quads if the doctor deems her unable to look after them?

Actress Dolly-Rose has hinted at what could be coming up for Gemma and her quads, including a temporary exit.

She explained: “Gemma doesn’t feel that she needs to (go and see a doctor) but Bernie tells her that she will tell Chesney about what’s been happening if she doesn’t go. 

“Even in the surgery it is really left to Bernie to tell Dr. Gaddas about her worries about Gemma and what Gemma has told her. 

“Gemma tries to play it down as tiredness and this causes a row between her and Bernie.

“She has struggled from the start looking after four babies but he thought that was just normal, who wouldn’t struggle with that many babies? 

“But things get really bad this week, she is starting to have awful dreams where she is putting the babies in danger and it is really starting to affect her.”

Will Bernie and Gemma be able to come together to work this out, or will going to the doctor just make everything worse?


  • Coronation Street fans in uproar as Ken Barlow furiously swears

It was revealed a couple of weeks ago that Coronation Street writers would be delving a lot deeper into Gemma’s mental health struggles. 

Dolly-Rose explained: “It is really important, it would have been easy just to have lots of comedy with Gemma and the quads but that would have been unrealistic if we didn’t show the struggles she is having. 

“As the story develops it becomes clear to Gemma that this is more than just the baby blues and tiredness and she will be forced to come to terms with the fact that she is ill and needs help.”

But will Gemma be able to get the help she needs or could she flee Weatherfield as it all gets too much for her?

Coronation Street will continue on ITV tonight at 7.30pm.

Piers Morgan, 54, was on hand to host today’s edition of Good Morning Britain, joined by Charlotte Hawkins, 44, in the studio and Susanna Reid, 49, reporting via video link. Joining his colleagues in the studio at 6:30am, the presenter got straight to voicing his views on the coronavirus pandemic and was clearly furious. He slammed those members of the public who flocked to public spaces this weekend as “morons” and pleaded with viewers of the ITV news show to stay indoors and follow the Government’s advice.

As images of packed car parks at top UK tourist destinations played out on screen, Piers said: “It’s like people thought it was a bank holiday.

“What is wrong with people? Why would you want to be one of these morons? Seriously. Do you not understand what is happening in this country?

“Do you not understand how serious it is? Answer, never in your lifetime for almost everybody,” he declared, as the rest of the studio fell silent.

EastEnders spoilers: Kat Slater takes down Gray Atkins after heartbreaking discovery

EastEnders resident Kush Kazemi (played by Davood Ghadami) rushed to Whitney Dean’s (Shona McGarty) defence a few months ago when she was involved in an altercation with Leo King (Tom Wells). The master manipulator painted himself as the victim despite stalking Whitney for months and Kush found himself faced with the possibility of a hefty prison sentence. 

Following Kush’s arrest, Whitney blamed herself and desperately wanted to help clear her friend’s name.

However, Leo ramped up his programme of torment and forced her to apologise to Tony King’s (Chris Coghill) gravestone.

He forced her to claim she’d lied about the abuse she’d suffered in front of the Queen Vic regulars but they all took Whitney’s side. 

The sinister trainee lawyer then hid away in Whitney’s attic until surprising her with a knife and attempting to kill her.

  • EastEnders cancelled: Why is EastEnders not on tonight?

Whitney fought back and Leo fell on the knife, fatally injuring himself but police believed she was, in fact, a murderer and the troubled market trader is now in prison awaiting trial.

While Gray Atkins (Toby-Alexander Smith) prepared for Kush’s trial, he also had to support Whitney in her bail hearing in the same week. 

Ahead of Kush’s trial, Gray’s colleague urged him to persuade the market trader to change his plea to guilty. 

Kat Slater (Jessie Wallace) was furious when her boyfriend told him Gray’s suggestion and wasted no time in confronting the lawyer. 

But, when Gray explained Kush’s guilty verdict could help secure Whitney’s freedom, the couple was lost for words. 

Kush was torn between accepting a criminal sentence or fighting his case and risking being given time behind bars. 

In the end, he decided to plead guilty and return home to his family the same day, but how would Kat react if she discovered Gray’s advice was incorrect? asked Andrew Gilmore, Head of Criminal Law at Grosvenor Law how Kush’s verdict could have impacted Whitney’s case.

He revealed: “It would not have a direct effect on Whitney’s case unless the facts of the assault were evidentially necessary in the murder case.  

“For example, the facts of the assault might be used against Whitney in her trial to show that Leo had suffered violence at the hands of Whitney and her friends in the past.”

However, the Head of Criminal Law explained that Kush’s guilty verdict could have a negative impact on Whitney’s case rather than a positive one as argued by Gray. 

“If Kush becomes a witness in Whitney’s case, and he had already pleaded guilty or is found guilty at trial to the assault,” he continued. 


  • EastEnders spoilers: Phil Mitchell affair twist as resident returns?

“There is a possibility that this conviction could be raised as ‘bad character’ evidence when he is cross-examined in Court and this might affect his credibility.”

Kat understood Kush’s decision to plead guilty considering Whitney’s circumstances however she would be furious if she discovered it was all for nothing. 

The Slater matriarch is known for her fiery temper and could make it her mission for Gray to pay for the miss-informed advice he gave her boyfriend. 

EastEnders viewers know Gray is hiding a dark secret as he brutally assaulted his wife, Chantelle Atkins (Jessica Plummer) in recent scenes. 

Will Kat be the one to discover Gray’s horrific behaviour and expose him as revenge?

Neighbours spoilers: Finn Kelly ‘murders’ Karl Kennedy in shock anniversary twist

Finn (played by Rob Mills) has been the focal point of Neighbours’ late-night episodes over the past few days, joining some of his fellow Ramsay Street residents on Pierce Grayson’s (Tim Robards) island to celebrate Elly Conway’s (Jodi Anasta) 35th birthday. Meanwhile, back in Erinsborough, Karl (Alan Fletcher) is unaware of the deadly repercussions of the villain regaining his memory after months of action reformed. As the Channel 5 soap’s action-packed week spirals into next week, could the sinister character end up murdering the doctor to get to his wife, Susan Kennedy (Jackie Woodburne)?

Ever since she pushed Finn off a cliff-top, which caused him to suffer amnesia and resort back to his days as a teenager, Susan has been somewhat of a mother figure to Finn.

The soap stalwart has been paramount to his recovery after she took drastic action to protect her nieces, Elly and Bea Nilsson (Bonnie Anderson), from the villain over 18 months ago.

Since then, he has reformed a romantic relationship with the latter, whilst developing feelings for her older sister.

However, in a shock twist, it could be the headteacher the troubled character has been pining after all this time – but does he need to get rid of Karl before he can have her to himself?


  • Neighbours spoilers: Susan Kennedy’s death ‘sealed’

Official soap spoilers have already revealed Finn and Susan are going to be starring in their very own two-hander episode next week.

It follows the terrifying events of the island and as the villain makes his way back to Ramsay Street, there is only one woman in his sights.

The troubled character manages to spin the stalwart a pack of lies to get her on her own with him, but what does he have planned?

When they get to a cabin in the mountains, he reveals he wants the pair to raise Elly’s daughter Aster together.

Why can’t Susan get some back?

Rob Mills

With Elly and Karl a thorn in his side to get his ultimate dream, will the villain get rid of both of them?

Speaking exclusively to, actor Rob, 37, revealed how he would like this whole anniversary week to end for his character, theoretically.

The soap star said: “If it was me, I would like Susan to leave Karl and for Finn and Susan to run away together.

“Let’s be honest, doctor Karl has cheated on Susan many times – why can’t Susan get some back?” the actor quipped.

Neighbours spoilers: Chloe Brennan murdered as she exposes Finn Kelly? [THEORY]

Although this is only Rob’s point of view, could the spoilers from next week and the comment about Karl’s infidelity mean his alter-ego will get rid of the icon once and for all?

It’s fair to say, there’s no love lost between the pair as the doctor has never been the villain’s biggest fan.

When the troubled character was acquitted of all his crimes last year and ended up moving in with the Kennedys, it put a huge amount of strain on the husband and wife’s marriage.

Could Finn come between the couple for good this time as he murders Susan’s beloved?


  • Neighbours spoilers: Major catastrophe to hit Ramsay Street

Whatever circumstances play out over the coming days, soap star Rob will be leaving the Australian drama.

The actor is bowing out of the soap after almost four years in the villainous role, but it’s yet to be revealed how he will depart.

Could he face time behind bars for killing four of Ramsay Street’s most treasured souls, or will he get his own deadly comeuppance?

Viewers will have to wait and see how this plot pans out, but with more drama to come, the stakes are only getting higher.

Neighbours continues weekdays at 1:30pm and 5:30pm on Channel 5. Neighbours Late: Endgame airs from Monday, March 16 to Friday, March 20 at 10pm on Channel 5.

Emmerdale spoilers: Sam Dingle and Lydia Hart torn apart after shock family discovery?

Emmerdale viewers tuned in to see Vinny Dingle (played by Bradley Johnson) step up and take the wrath for Samson Dingle (Sam Hall) pawning his father’s wedding ring this evening. But while this was an honourable thing to do, Samson lying could see him tearing Lydia Hart (Karen Blick) and Sam Dingle (James Hooton) apart. 

Fans will remember an iconic Emmerdale scene, whereby Sam held his beloved Alice Dingle (Ursula Holden-Gill) as she was tragically taken away by cancer. 

Overnight, he became a single parent to baby Samson, and with some help from the Dingle clan, he has raised his son alone. 

When Lydia appeared in the village, the two hit it off instantly, and quickly fell in love, but she insisted Alice would always remain part of their family no matter what. 

Last summer, the soap delved into Lydia’s background and Samson’s reaction to the news she had a son, which she had to bury hours after giving birth was unbearable. 


  • Emmerdale spoilers: Leyla Harding cheats on Liam in huge affair twist?

Since then, he has slowly come around to the idea of his father wanting Lydia in his life, but that could all change as a result of his selfish behaviour recently. 

Apparently Samson has a girlfriend in France following a recent school trip, and is desperate to go and see her, but with the wedding coming up, his parents are unable to fund his jaunt. 

Instead he decides to sell his father’s wedding ring, the ring he was given by his mother on their wedding day, and Vinny knew about this and tried to persuade him otherwise. 

Returning home from school, Samson walked into Wishing Well cottage and was greeted by his family standing around waiting for him. 

“God has someone died?” Samson commented in the glum atmosphere and Mandy Dingle (Lisa Riley) muttered under her breath: “Not yet!” 

Taking charge, Lydia asked Samson: “Did you bring your dad’s ring back?” 

“Got some bad news, there was a break in at school, someone took it,” Samson lied. 

Filling the silence, he continued to explain: “The police said there’s nothing they can do about it so there’s no point pestering them. I’m really sorry dad.” 

Mandy interrupted with a sarcastic comment: “Can’t imagine what kind of lowlife would break into a school and rob a kid’s locker.” 

“There’s some right scumbags out there, it might turn up someday,” Samson shrugged off.

Lydia added: “I have a fair idea where. If I would hazard a guess it’s at Hotton Pawn shop – 62 the High Street Hotton.”

“I can explain,” Samson pleaded realising his cover had been blown. 

Upset, Sam shouted: “Can’t believe you sold that ring you knew how important that was, I wanted you to have it.” 

In another scene, Vinny stood up and claimed it was his fault, but Mandy was quick to set the record straight. 

“He’s joking, he’s got to be joking. You are joking right?” She asked her son. 

Confused, Sam asked Samson: “You said it was in your locker?” And Vinny claimed: “I know, I forced him into it.” 

“All you’ve done since you’ve got here is help yourself to anything you can find and now you get him to cover for this?” Sam fumed. 


  • Emmerdale spoilers: Marlon Dingle forced from village after betrayal?

“I know I’m sorry I swear,” Vinny commented and then explained: “I needed to fix my PS4, I spilt tea all over it.” 

“Why did you cover for him you could’ve said no?” Mandy asked Samson and he said: “I didn’t want to get him into trouble because family stick together.” 

It is only a matter of time until the truth comes out, but when it does what excuse will Samson give to his father this time? 

Will he tell him he doesn’t want him marrying Lydia? This could lead to Sam making a big decision about his future.

EastEnders spoilers: Alfie Moon’s comeback ‘revealed’ in Queen Vic shake-up

EastEnders fans were left devastated this weekend when official soap spoilers announced Mick Carter (played by Danny Dyer) and Linda Carter (Kellie Bright) were leaving the Queen Vic and their livelihood behind. But who is going to be stepping into their shoes? has created an exclusive poll with possible suggestions as to who the new landlord or landlady of the most iconic pub in Walford will be. 

In recent months, following rigorous testing and assessments, the Carter family was shaken when they found out their youngest child Ollie had autism. 

As a result, Linda and Mick have faced various challenges, one of them being Linda’s spiral into alcoholism. 

Unable to cope with her son’s diagnosis, she found comfort at the bottom of the bottle, after struggling to communicate with Mick. 

Meanwhile, Mick was facing his own health battles, on Christmas Day, BBC One viewers tuned in to see Mick buckle under pressure and suffer a terrifying panic attack. 

While Linda continued to drink herself into oblivion, Mick withdrew himself from their marriage and restricted her access to Ollie. 


  • EastEnders spoilers: Jack Branning discovers secret about Patrick son?

In devastating scenes, Linda served Mick divorce papers but the tragic boat accident which occurred on the Thames to celebrate the soaps 35th anniversary drew the fan-favourite couple back together. 

After realising they needed one another more than ever, Linda decided enough was enough and she needed to get herself sober. 

Since the boat incident, the landlady has been doing everything she can to prove to Mick she wants to change and even attend her first Alcoholics Anonymous meeting. 

But in upcoming scenes, Mick decides his family and marriage is more important than the Queen Vic. 

The EastEnders favourite has been pulling pints ever since he joined the soap back in 2013, but now he will be selling up and moving out. 

Who is going to replace them? 

The first landlord to stand behind the bar was ‘Dirty’ Den Watts (Leslie Grantham) back in 1975 and he was in charge until 1988 when Frank Butcher (Mike Reid) took over. 

He was the landlord for a couple of years until Sharon Mitchell (Letitia Dean) took ownership and arrived in Walford. 

One of the most notorious landladies was Peggy Mitchell (Dame Barbara Windsor), and she welcomed the residents into the pub from 1995 to 2001 until Sharon returned with Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) in tow. 

Den, Peggy and briefly Alfie Moon (Shane Ritchie) had brief stances from 2002 to 2009, whereby Archie Mitchell (Larry Lamb) was introduced alongside his daughters Ronnie Branning (Samantha Womack) and Roxy Mitchell (Rita Simons) who made themselves very comfortable behind the bar.

Alfie regained control in 2010 alongside his wife Kat Slater (Jessie Wallace) until the Carters arrived in 2013. 

So who is going to take over the reins? 

If history is anything to go by, it seems the Mitchells are the top landlords and landladies Walford has to offer. 

In upcoming scenes, Phil is set to return, but his timing is not well received. 

On the day of Dennis Mitchell’s (Bleu Landau) funeral, he is going to make an appearance, and a grieving and angry Sharon is not happy to see him. 

But what has he come back for? Has he struck a deal with Mick perhaps for a new business venture? 


  • EastEnders spoilers: Linda Carter’s downfall teased as nemesis returns

Sharon is also a dab-hand at pulling pints and chatting to punters, but it seems at the moment she has more pressing matters on her plate.

Perhaps Ben Mitchell (Max Bowden) could swap running the Archers for the Queen Vic and have partner Callum Highway (Tony Clay) by his side. 

Maybe the Slaters want to regain control, after all this could be Alfie’s comeback storyline. 

Taking to Twitter to comment, one said: “Oh my god if the slaters got the vic that would be amazing.” 

The thought of the Taylors or the Panesars behind the bar,” someone else remarked. 

A third added: “Not ballum [Ben and Callum] omg people would go insane.”

Casualty spoilers: Charlie Fairhead betrayed as Jacob Masters makes heartbreaking plea

Charlie (played by Derek Thompson) has returned to work at Holby City hospital, just weeks after beloved wife Duffy (Cathy Shipton) passed away after being diagnosed with dementia. Although he thinks he’s fine, his fellow Casualty colleagues are not convinced and have been urging him to take more time off. However, this evening’s edition of the BBC medical drama will see Jacob (Charles Venn) make a heartbreaking decision about the stalwart’s future in the A&E department.

Since his wife’s passing, Charlie has become a shell of his former self, cutting himself off from his friends and becoming reluctant to carry out his duties at work.

This hasn’t gone unnoticed by the likes of Robyn Miller (Amanda Henderson) and nurse Marty Kirkby (Shaheen Jafargholi), who seems to have been receiving the brunt of his bosses frustrations.

The nursing manager has managed to keep himself in his role for the time being, but this evening’s episode sees his future put in jeopardy.

With Jacob on his back, it’s not long before the stalwart has the decision taken out his hands on whether he can still work at the hospital.


  • Casualty spoilers: Ruby Spark left heartbroken after hard decision

The drama begins when Charlie turns up for yet another shift in a distant mood and he shows a lack of engagement with everyone, including patients.

Instead of caring for those in need of help, the nursing manager focusses his time into making beds and sorting out the state of cubicles.

Trying to offer some advice to his friend, Jacob steps in and tells the drama stalwart it would be understandable if he needed to take more time off.

Although he acknowledges the incentive, the beloved character explains he’s fine and doesn’t need to be bothered all the time.

Jacob’s suspicions about Charlie’s state of mind are raised when the nursing manager fails to help junior nurse Jade Lovall (Gabriella Leon) when she asks for assistance.

As a result of his negligence, the patient’s well-being is put in jeopardy and the BBC medical drama heartthrob steps in.

Realising his friend is in urgent need of help, the nurse calls Head of Nursing and Holby City favourite Adrian Fletcher (Alex Walkinshaw).

Knowing his colleague will feel betrayed but needing to put the well-being of patients as paramount importance, it seems Jacob has sealed Charlie’s fate in the ED.

How will the nursing manager react when he discovers his friend has gone behind his back and reported him to the head honcho?

Does this mean Charlie has lost his job for good, or will the stalwart be put on an enforced leave of absence?

Whatever comes from Jacob’s betrayal, it seems the Casualty stalwart will be facing struggles for some weeks yet.

Speaking ahead of her exit earlier this year, actress Cathy Shipton, 62, teased her character’s husband will be absolutely grief-stricken for months to come.


  • Casualty spoilers: Iain Dean star confirms character will return

The former star of the show told Radio Times: “We also, of course, wanted to highlight how dementia affects the relatives and carers as well as people living with it.

“So the story continues with testing times for Charlie, who will go to some pretty dark places, with stunning work from Derek.

“The audience will know that Charlie already feels bitter about a system he feels has let Duffy down.”

Will anyone come to help the BBC medical drama stalwart in his hour of need?

Casualty continues tonight at 9:15pm on BBC One.

Coronation Street spoilers: Ken Barlow ‘dies’ after Tracy Barlow makes deadly discovery

Ken (played by William Roache) has been a permanent face on Coronation Street since the ITV soap began airing almost six decades ago. Last night’s edition of the Weatherfield based drama saw the stalwart bid farewell to the cobbles after making the decision to move into a retirement complex with his other half, Claudia Colby (Rula Lenska). Just before he left, however, he gave his daughter Tracy (Kate Ford) quite a fright. Could this scene have been a sign of things to come and hinting towards the death of an icon?

Last night’s hour-long episode saw Ken packing up the last of his belongings as he prepared to move into the Still Waters retirement home.

The stalwart had been anxious to leave his home of eighty years, with it having held many memories of his life with late wife Deidre Barlow (Anne Kirkbride) and his children.

As the tireless work of moving house caught up with him, the pensioner decided to put on some music and sit back whilst he enjoyed his last few moments at the property.

However, he fell into a sleep with beloved dog Eccles sat on his lap and when Tracy entered the house to check on him, she believed he’d died.


  • Coronation Street spoilers: Alina plan to split Emma and Seb revealed?

The pensioner was sat perfectly still and even viewers would have been fooled to think this was the last they were going to see of Ken.

As Tracy began to call out for him, the pensioner soon came to and gave her quite the fright as he awoke from his sleep.

“Dad I thought you’d pegged it,” she declared, to which he replied: “Not yet. Eccles and I were having a moment.”

There was still life in the soap icon yet, but could this be a precursor to the heartbreak his family could be set to endure?

Dad, I thought you’d pegged it

Tracy Barlow

It was in the soap’s 10,000th episode last month, viewers discovered Ken would be bidding farewell to the cobbles.

Scenes since have seen Tracy and his son Peter Barlow (Chris Gascoyne) caught in a bidding war as to who would get their hands on Number 1.

With his daughter becoming the sole owner of the property, upcoming episodes will see the pensioner begin to settle at the retirement home.

Although he was resistant to move, could his decision to go with Claudia suggest he is hiding a secret health battle from his loved ones?
