When he heard they were bringing back legendary game show The Price Is Right, Alan Carr was desperate to be the host. It was more than just a chance to follow in the footsteps of the likes of Sir Bruce Forsyth, it was a link to a part of his childhood. “I loved the show, and the feeling I got remembering the 80s, sitting with my family, shouting out what we thought was the price of a deep fat fryer,” says the 41 year old.
When it comes to delivering her verdict on the last time she danced on Strictly (back in 2014 with Anton Du Beke), Judy Murray is even more brutal than Craig Revel Horwood in her assessment. “I was so rubbish!” says the tennis coach. “I was very wooden and very stiff. When I watched the shows back I wished I could have danced better, performed better and been more relaxed.
It’s a guaranteed double hit every Christmas and New Year, but if ever Brendan O’Carroll needs reassurance that Mrs Brown’s Boys is as popular as ever, all he has to do is look at the number of people who apply to watch the shows being recorded in Glasgow. “They never cease to amaze me, the audience,” says the series’ creator and star. “We’ve only got 400 seats in the studio and we had 146,000 requests for tickets! The way the tickets are given out is on a lottery basis.
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".
