Best on the Box
Spicing up the oldies’ lives in Halifax this week are two babies – one already born, one just a twinkle in a potential sperm donor’s eye. There’s a delightful scene in the registry office when it takes a committee to choose a name for the young girl of Ellie ( Katherine Rose Morley) and Raff ( Josh Bolt). Then headmistress Caroline ( Sarah Lancashire), whose weekend away with Kate ( Nina Sosanya) starts badly and only goes downhill from there, takes an intense dislike to the man Kate hopes will father their child.
Thought SBS had squeezed every possible ounce out of World orld Cup fever? Think again! The country that brought us Gisele Bundchen and Adriana Lima is now on the hunt for its next big beauty … otherwise known as Leonardo DiCaprio’s next girlfriend. This is actually the third Brazilian “cycle” of Next Top Model, which aired over there in 2009. The contestant who had a nervous breakdown in this first episode must love having that dredged up again. Fernanda Motta ( pictured) hosts.
