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).

Dad’s Army the movie will, as it says on the poster, be ‘reporting for duty’ in February 2016 but the poster images shot by Jay Brooks are out now.

In the roles of Captain Mainwaring and his men it features an extraordinary stellar company of British acting talent including Bill Nighy as Sergeant Wilson, Tom Courtney as Corporal Jones and Michael ‘Dumbledore’ Gambon as Private Godfrey.  It even has Catherine Zeta-Jones as Private Pike’s mum!

As Jay remembers, the shoot was a big day out in Bridlington. ‘Catherine Zeta-Jones was first, followed by a delivery of guns, replica of course, but eight World War Two rifles with their own munitions expert. Next was Bill Nighy and a box of moustaches followed by Toby Jones, some tin hats, some leather boots, Michael Gambon and the camouflage.

Tom Courtney, Daniel Mays and Blake Harrison quickly joined the party, followed soon after by Bill Paterson and the binoculars.

By noon we had 8 great British actors all under one roof and an armoury big enough to mount an invasion of a small English village.’

Dad’s Army is a Universal Pictures production and opens on February 5th next year

Ray Burmiston shot national treasure and national choirmaster, Gareth Malone, for Sunday’s Event magazine.

The idea of the shoot was clearly to cast off Gareth’s twinkly choirboy image and to release his inner Ziggy Stardust.  To this end he was pictured in one of Camden Town’s sweatier rock venues and the cover of the magazine promises revelations of what he gets up to on tour. Apparently he drinks white wine and wears a onesie!

But the ever dapper Gareth really cuts it.  He looks super sharp in the pictures and the Les Paul really suits him.  We especially like the houndstooth check suit!

Gareth Malone’s current TV series The Naked Choir, a competition to find Britain’s best amateur acapella singers, is on Tuesday nights on BBC2

The producers of #Strictly Come Dancing commissioned Ray Burmiston to produce these glittering and glamourous images of the couples contesting this year’s competition.  But as we know it is hell out there in the world of ballroom, no quarter asked or given, and some have already fallen.  It’s back on again this weekend of course.  Who will be for the drop this time?

We don’t know but less of our money is on Ainsley and more on Jay  ex-out of The Wanted.  We would like to point out that the pictures above are in no particular order!

Nigella – one of those rare beings who are so famous they only need one name – teamed up once more with Jay Brooks to shoot a feature on ‘her life through food’  for The Guardian Weekend.

Subtitled ‘I eat, therefore I am’, the feature is timed to coincide with the launch of Ms Lawson’s new book ‘Simply Nigella: Feel Good Food’.  It, the feature not the book, charts the development of Nigella’s tastes from the discovery of the avocado in the 1970’s to the rediscovery of the pomegranate in the present.  Nigella, the food and the feature in general all look fabulous but the star of the show has to be the 1980’s beige leather jacket!  See above.
