No laugh­ing mat­ter

It seems Chan­nel 4 is leav­ing its am­bi­tious sit­com High & Dry... well, high and dry. The se­ries about a group of plane-crash sur­vivors, which was filmed in the Sey­chelles, is un­likely to re­turn, says cast mem­ber Asim Chaudhry (above left). ‘I don’t think it’s go­ing again, sadly,’ he says. ‘It was crazy to work on and great fun.’

If she could bump off any­one from her lat­est mur­der mys­tery, Sian Gibson says it would be the cater­ers. Sian is back with Johnny Ve­gas in Gold’s pas­tiche, this time Death On The Tyne, and says, ‘I put on half a stone film­ing. I felt like I was on a real all-in­clu­sive cruise.’

Si­enna Guil­lory shot her scenes for the fi­nal For­ti­tude se­ries in Bris­tol, yet the weather was worse than on lo­ca­tion in Nor­way. ‘The snow’s ar­rival in Eng­land co­in­cided with some freak­ishly warm weather in Sval­bard,’ says set de­signer Paul Spriggs. ‘It was colder here than there!’

Jamie Oliver had a helper for his Quick And Easy Christ­mas show – his son River, two. Jamie ex­plains, ‘We did one recipe to­gether then Jools tried to take him away but he kicked off and so he ended up stay­ing. I had to make dough balls one­handed with River in my arms thwack­ing them with his hands and squash­ing them!’
