He won hearts with his salt-of-the earth humour and iconic catchphrases. But there was just one person who the late Jim Bowen's heart belonged to, and that was his wife of 60 years, Phyllis. The pair met at Caton Primary School in Lancaster when she was a PE teacher and he was the deputy headmaster, and he once described that moment as, “The biggest and best thing that every happened to me."
Tom O’Connor has called for his classic 80s gameshow Name That Tune to return. The ex-host of ITV’s song title quiz is so keen he says he would even lend a hand as an assistant on the new format. He says: “Name That Tune should come back. "I’d love to host it, I’d happily come in as an assistant.”Tom, 78, said at the TV industry TRIC awards in London that at first he was under orders to be strict but bent the rules to let approximate titles win.
Black singer Heather Small has revealed racism nearly ruined a spiritual journey for a BBC2 series. The M People star was insulted about the colour of her skin at a monastery en route to Camino de Santiago in Spain. But the support of her fellow celebrity travellers in Pilgrimage: The Road to Santiago, being screened on Friday, turned her negative experience into a highlight of the arduous journey. Heather , 53, is one seven stars who walk for a fortnight.
@anitathetweeter@indiaknight I totally want a second series. I just mean it didn’t need to be quite so open and unanswered. It could have relied on the quality of the characters(and there are some excellent ones in Save Me).
@anitathetweeter@indiaknight I enjoyed series but was a bit annoyed with so many loose ends. I think that’s a slight problem with TV drama in general atm. Writers have an eye on second series or hope their drama will one day become a four series Netflix box set. V few going for 6/8 eps with solid conclusion.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
