Danny Dyer on his recent royal connection revelation, calling the Queen “RUDE” because “still hasn’t rung me.”

Gobby Piers Morgan was gagged by TV partner Susannah Reid after the pair had suffered “a controversial week.” The nation rejoiced.

Lovely Dermot O’Leary stepped in when a seating issue arose live on telly. He escorted a couple on their honeymoon to seats on the actual FROW. Much to their delight.

TV might show Game Of Thrones was beaten by… Casualty. Seriously. Only in the UK, eh? Jon Snow, you can come and cry on our shoulder anytime.
