Matt LeBlanc aims to clock up more miles on Top Gear with a new deal to stay with the BBC hit. LeBlanc’s two-year contract as main host will expire just as the new series – kicking off on Sunday – comes to an end. Asked if he’d be back in 2019, Matt says: “I hope so. If they will have me back, I am knocking on that door.”Which is good news as the opening on BBC2 shows Matt, Chris Harris and Rory Reid really starting to gel, relentlessly mocking each other racing V8s in Utah.
Former glamour model Katie Price is a bit of an expert on things that go bump in the night. And now she’s ready to put up a brave front in Celebrity Haunted Mansion this week.

Dancing On Ice bosses were on thin ice with the judges – and had to fork out for top of the range heaters. The heaters have been installed behind the desks of the show’s judging panel after worries they would become ill. The producers were forced to take action after the judges complained about the new studio’s icy conditions. Skater Matt Evers, who was voted out in week one, said: “Each judge has had to have a Dyson heater behind them now. “Well we are in a marquee built on a big slab of ice!
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".
