THANKS to BBC’s Call the Midwife and C4 reality maternity series One Born Every Minute pregnancy makes for great TV.

WITH BBC1 offering wallto- wall sport, non-sports fans might be tempted to look elsewhere, particularly when an alternative is watching parents deciding that they must outdo everyone else by buying designer outfits for young Elvis or Mirana… not to mention crystalcovered dummies, hairpieces, piercings and spray tans.

HE ONCE famously said “You can’t win anything with kids” concerning the 1995 Manchester United squad, but that line was typical of the no-nonsense Scot Alan Hansen, who got so many things right in his career.

FEW of us will ever get to enjoy the treats on offer at Britain's premiere health spa - Champneys. Guests must pay top dollar to enjoy its luxurious surroundings but, according to this documentary, whether you're royalty or somebody who's saved up for years for the pleasure, you'll be treated the same as soon as you walk through the establishment's DOORS.

SHE’S probably a little too posh to push this show title, but you can’t help rooting for good old Kirstie Allsopp. In slightly thinner times, she was openly furious with dunderheads who didn’t know a bargain home when they saw one.

The opening festival day alone features Arcade Fire, Elbow, and Lily Allen on the iconic Pyramid Stage, plus Blondie and the Kaiser Chiefs. But it’s rising stars Blackbeard's Tea Party who the region can raise a glass to this afternoon.

I CAN’T help but admire Alex Polizzi who is constantly looking for standards and professionalism in a world which isn't always accommodating. The woman has staying power if nothing else, because her training in the formidable Forte hotel chain – she’s the granddaughter of Lord Forte – must make her despair of others reaching similar standards.
