The only thing to say about this picture…’WE WISH WE WERE THERE’!!! Ray Burmiston onset of Life’s Too Short, captured the funny men in action along with the amazing cameos. Brilliant!

It’s 60 years this week since ‘Rock Around the Clock’ by Bill Haley and The Comets hit number one in ‘the hit parade’ and teds invented teenage rebellion!  And as Jay Brooks reveals in this personal project they are still at it – though noticeably less teenage.

When teds rioted at the Trocadero Cinema in Elephant and Castle, fired up by the rock and roll soundtrack of the movie ‘Blackboard Jungle’, they sent middle England into the first of many moral panics and blazed the trail for the mods, rockers, skins and punks that followed them.

The teds – or teddy boys to give them their full title – in Jay’s pictures are a little more mature and stop short of riot but only just.  As you can see they still enjoy what teds have always enjoyed sharp suits, beer, rock and roll and the odd fag.

‘I love Christmas,’ said Katie, ‘ so I was utterly delighted to be involved in the Sainsburys Christmas campaign.

Katie and her crew embraced the challenge of creating festive cheer on an industrial scale in July in a studio in Shoreditch with energy and determination, cooking, styling and shooting scores of dishes.  They produced an amazing set of images that put a twist on the more traditional shots of Christmas fayre – all about food that has been enjoyed!

‘I was blessed to have a great team of people to work with,’ Katie added,’ my old friend David Morgan and my assistant Lou, who came over from Sydney for the first part of the shoot, and then Jo Harris and Julia Azzarello who took over for part two.’

‘It’s a lucky sixpence and no mistake, guv’nor!’ The Royal Mint is encouraging people across the UK to get involved in the age-old custom of putting a lucky sixpence into a homemade Christmas pudding, with a free collectible coin this season.

A One Poll survey into Christmas traditions found that whilst just over half (55%) of Brits are planning to serve a Christmas pudding on 25 December 2015, of which 15% will be homemade, and only 37% will contain a lucky Christmas sixpence.

Hoping to make 2016 the luckiest year yet, They’re giving away 2,015 complimentary Christmas sixpence coins alongside a specially commissioned Christmas Pudding recipe – you can read all about it here .

Scott was lucky enough to be commissioned by the Royal Mint to shoot their Christmas Pudding recipe and lucky sixpence to accompany the campaign and the recipe by the lovely Rachel Walker of The Food I Eat.

The painful but hilarious Peep Show returns to Channel4 for its ninth and final series this week, and to mark the fact Jay Brooks was asked to shoot its stars, Robert Webb and David Mitchell, for Shortlist magazine.

The idea for the feature was for the two actors to pick their favourite and funniest moments from the Peep Show archives but as soon as they slipped back into their roles as Croydon’s oddest couple they had a row.  Of course they did!

Anyway here are a few classic Peep Show moments

1.“Fancy dress? It’s like a joke for people with no sense of humour” (Mark, Series 7, episode 6).

2. “I suppose doing things you hate is the price you pay to avoid loneliness.” (Mark, Series 3, episode 2).

3. “A new boiler. Surely the least enjoyable way to spend £1,000. At least throwing the money out of the window you’d see the scrabbling mass, the hate-filled faces.” (Mark, Series 6, episode 2).

4. “If text kisses were real kisses then the world would be an orgy!” (Mark, Series 6, episode 6).

5. “Why do the people who want to talk about things always win?” (Jeremy, Series 3, episode 4).

6. “No, not the Hootenanny. Never the Hootenanny.” (Jeremy, Series 7 episode 6).

7. “[Politicians] should be more honest. You know, if they were more honest, then maybe people would vote and not switch straight over when the news comes on.” (Jeremy, Series 1, episode 4).

8. “Let’s face it, we’re all falling apart piece by piece. Doesn’t matter if you’re single or in a couple. You. Are. Going. To. Die.” (Mark, Series 1, episode 3).

9. “Socks before or after trousers, but never socks before pants, that’s the rule. Makes a man look scary, like a chicken.” (Mark, Series 1, episode 2).

And

10. “People like Coldplay and voted for the Nazis. You can’t trust people” (Super Hans, Series 3, episode 2).
