  • You're probably aware of Kelly, Jack and the other one. Now meet the newest addition to Sharon Osbourne's clan - Captain Hook. Well, sort of.

    The feisty former 'X Factor' judge is providing the voice of Mama Hook, mother of Captain, in the Disney cartoon 'Jake And The Never Land Pirates'.

    In her debut episode 'Mama Hook Knows Best', Mama Hook turns up to teach her son a lesson after finding out that he's been stealing treasure.

    Speaking about the recurring role, Sharon said: "Mama Hook was a pleasure to play and she's quite similar to me in that she's strong and wants her boy to be the best he can be — she doesn't like it when he's causing trouble.

    "Also, it's just great to do a job where you don't have to get all made up in the morning; it's all about the voice! I can't wait to hear what families think about the newest addition to Never Land."

    Having seen Sharon in action on 'The X Factor', we think she's perfect for the role.

    'Jake And The Never Land Pirates' is on Disney Junior,

  • An advert for the launch of TV channel TNT in Belgium has become a viral hit.

    The 90-second promotional advert to mark the US channel's launch in Europe features a hidden camera stunt where members of the public are encouraged to press a button to see what happens.

    A sign beside the button says 'Push to add drama' and that's exactly what happens as a number of stunts leave passers-by stunned in the Flemish town featured.

    We wish some of our UK broadcasters would follow note and come up with some more exciting ads like this!

  • The BBC has released the first teaser for the seventh series of 'Doctor Who' which is on its way later this year.

    Starring Matt Smith, Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill (but no sign of new companion Jenna-Louise Coleman), most of the footage comes from the show's opening episode.

    The trailer reveals that the first episode of the 2012 series takes place in a classic Western setting, making it the second series' opener in a row to be set in America, in a desert and have Matt Smith's Doctor sporting a Stetson.

    There's more footage too quick to pick many major details from but we do see Rory and Amy armed with shotguns, possibly in their final episode up against the Weeping Angels as confirmed by Steven Moffat last week.

    There's also a glimpse of a Dalek's eye-stalk-thing coming out from snow. If the Daleks are being brought back as main villains then that would contradict the admission from Moffat over a year ago

  • So, did you guess who it was then?

    Last night 'Coronation Street' viewers finally found out who killed Frank Foster - it were her off 'Duty Free'.

    Yes, it was Anne Foster, played by veteran actress Gwen Taylor, who bumped off her nasty rapist of a son by a single blow to the head with a whisky bottle.

    It wasn't the longest of soap whodunnits as Frank was only killed a couple of weeks ago and these can run for months.

    But it was a juicy plot for the soap that saw the finger of suspicion point at five Weatherfield residents - Carla, Peter, Michelle, Sally and Kevin.

    The clues were all there though from the start that it wasn't going to be any of that lot.

    Firstly, 'Corrie' killers are always punished for their crimes and we knew that none of those five actors were set to quit the cobbles.

    Keen 'Coronation Street' fans will also have noted that, when initial reports of the storyline emerged, Frank's mother Anne was included in the suspects
