My favourite film aged 12: Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home
I was reluctant at first, but became a fully fledged Trekkie when I watched the movie in which Captain Kirk and Spock land in 1980s San Francisco‘You’re talking about the end of every life on Earth! You’re half-human, haven’t you got any goddamn feelings about that?,” says James T Kirk to Spock, in Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home. A seemingly unstoppable natural disaster looks set to consume the planet, and the only chance of salvation is the ultimate long shot. No, not convincing American teenagers to stop going to the beach during a pandemic, but travelling back in time to fetch a pair of humpback whales in the hopes that they will tell an environmentally destructive interstellar probe to buzz off. It may sound absurd, but Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home teases the story out so it all clicks into place. It’s a film beloved by hardcore fans and mainstream audiences who otherwise thumbed their nose at the oft-stigmatised franchise.When I saw it at age 12, I was only vaguely aware of Star Trek. I knew that Captain Kirk was a tough guy, Spock was logical and Leonard “Bones” McCoy was goofy. I also knew that some losers were so into this stuff that they could have conversations in Klingon. But about 10 minutes into this adventure (which is the conclusion to an arc that begins with Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan and continues with Star Trek III: The Search for Spock) I knew I had no choice but to become one of the devoted – and frequently mocked – Trekkies. Like a Klingon Bird-of-Prey on a slingshot warp around the sun’s gravitational pull, my life had been sent on a new trajectory. Continue reading...

Footballers' Wives: Here's What Happened To The Cast After The Final Whistle Blew
With many people calling for old series to be repeated to help fill the TV schedules during the coronavirus pandemic, one show that keeps coming up again and again is Footballers’ Wives. One part camp, two parts ridiculous, the series followed the escapades of a group of WAGs and their footballer husbands with plot lines involving baby swaps, unhinged nurses, incest and a man literally being shagged to death.Subtle, it was not.It also introduced us to iconic characters like Tanya Turner and Amber Gates across its five series, which ran on ITV from 2002 to 2006. With the show very much back in the public’s consciousness amid calls for its return, we thought it was time we checked in with the cast to see what they’d all been up to since the final whistle blew on the series...Zoe Lucker played Tanya TurnerThe stand-out star of Footballers’ Wives, Zoe has had many other high-profile roles since leaving scheming Tanya Turner behind – although many of them have certainly borrowed from her. Zoe appeared in a short-lived, police-based Casualty spin-off called HolbyBlue in 2007, before going on to play Max Branning’s love interest Vanessa Gold in EastEnders from 2009 to 2010. The character has been much-memed on the internet in recent years thanks to her infamous “Bubbly’s in the fridge” meltdown. In 2013, Zoe had a recurring role in Waterloo Road as Carol Barry, before going on to have a regular role in Hollyoaks, playing Reenie McQueen from 2015 to 2016. Zoe was also a contestant on Strictly Come Dancing in 2009, competing against her former co-star Laila Rouass, who played Amber Gates. Zoe and her partner James Jordan were seventh to be eliminated from the competition. Cristian Solimeno played Jason TurnerJason Turner was the first big casualty of Footballers’ Wives, with the Earl’s Park captain killed off during the second series’ finale in 2003 in a “whodunnit?” storyline. From there, Cristian popped up in a New Year special of The Vicar Of Dibley in 2005 and appeared in Kay Mellor series Strictly Confidential opposite Suranne Jones the following year. Between 2013 and 2014, he played Ray McCormick in Hollyoaks, and also starred in 2018 independent film Welcome To Curiosity alongside Richard Blackwood.In 2020, Cristian popped up in Hugh Lawrie’s HBO comedy series Avenue 5, playing Dave in two episodes. As well as acting, Cristian also works as a writer and director. Gary Lucy played Kyle PascoeGary was already famous when he landed the role of Earl’s Park heartthrob Kyle in Footballers’ Wives, having played Luke Morgan in Hollyoaks prior to the show.He returned to the Channel 4 soap in 2017, taking a short break from the role in 2018 to appear in a stage production of The Full Monty. Prior to rejoining Hollyoaks, Gary appeared in The Bill as PC Will Fletcher from 2005 to 2010, and played Danny Pennant in EastEnders from 2012 to 2014. Gary has also taken part in two series of Dancing On Ice – the first in 2010, where he finished runner-up, before returning for an all-stars series in 2014, where he was eliminated fourth. Susie Amy played Chardonnay Lane-PascoeWe’re still not quite over Chardonnay getting killed off before her time at the start of the third series, but it was far from the last time we saw Susie on our screens.After guest roles in the likes of Hotel Babylon, The Royal and Doctors shortly after leaving Footballers’ Wives, Susie had a three-episode stint in Coronation Street in 2007 before landing a leading role in ITV’s short-lived soap Echo Beach the following year. In 2009, she also had a minor role in James Corden and Mat Horne’s critically-panned film Lesbian Vampire Killers. In recent years, Susie has popped up in Doctors again, as well as Death In Paradise, Casualty and Holby City. In 2018, Susie was reunited on screen with Gary Lucy, (aka Chardonnay’s husband Kyle), when she landed a four-month guest role on Hollyoaks as Scarlett, the ex-wife of Gary’s character Luke Morgan.Gillian Taylforth played Jackie PascoeHaving played EastEnders’ Kathy Beale for over 15 years, most people were already familiar with Gillian Taylforth when she joined Footballers’ Wives. Her character, Jackie, was the only one who appeared continuously over the show’s five series. When the show ended, Gillian was reunited with her former on-screen son when she joined the cast of The Bill as Sgt Nikki Wright in 2006, as well as enjoying a number of short stints on the Loose Women panel in the late 00s. Gillian entered the Celebrity Big Brother house in 2013, and shortly after joined the cast of Hollyoaks as Sandy Ruscoe, who she played until 2015. The same year, Gillian made a shock return to EastEnders when Kathy came back from the dead, and she continues to play the character to this day. Daniel Schutzmann played Salvatore Biagi Shortly after his character left Earl’s Park during the second series of the show, Daniel was back playing another footballer when he guest-starred as Izzy Hoyland’s boyfriend Pete in London-based episodes of Australian soap Neighbours in 2007.  A few years later, he popped up as a waiter in Coronation Street before joining the cast of Doctors for a four-month stint as Dr. Franc Christophe in 2014. Nathan Constance played Ian WalmsleyNathan’s first role after leaving the show came just a few months after his final episode when he had a guest role in The Bill in 2003. From there, he played Chum in the 2006 film London to Brighton before taking on the role of Zac in the 2008 film Adulthood, the sequel to Kidulthood. In 2009, Nathan played DC Connor in BBC drama Hunter and also had minor roles in Waking The Dead and Misfits. More recently, he’s been lending his voice to video games, working on titles including Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III, Titanfall, Lords of the Fallen and Battlefield 1.Katherine Monaghan played Donna WalmsleyKatherine landed her first major TV role when she was cast as young WAG Donna in 2002. Since leaving the show in series two, she’s only had a small number of other TV parts, including minor roles in Judge John Deed in 2007, Vera in 2013 and Holby City in 2014.Laila Rouass played Amber GatesAmber may have been one of the most popular characters from the show, but she didn’t actually arrive until the third series and left half-way through the final run of episodes.For Laila, an obligatory guest appearance in Casualty followed before she joined the cast of ITV sci-fi series Primeval in 2009. She appeared in the ninth series of BBC spy drama Spooks the following year, before landing a main role in Holby City, playing Sahira Shah from 2011 to 2012. In 2015, she appeared alongside Elizabeth Hurley in short-lived US soap The Royals as Deputy Prime Minister Rani, before popping up in the penultimate series of Ruth Jones sitcom Stella. Most recently, Laila appeared in Disney Channel series The Lodge, as well as in Netflix series Safe in 2018. The same year also saw her stage an on-screen reunion with Zoe Lucker when they were both interviewed on Loose Women. As previously mentioned, Laila was a contestant on Strictly Come Dancing alongside Zoe in 2009, where she and partner Anton DuBeke made the semi-final. Ben Price played Conrad GatesBen is one of the few Footballers’ Wives stars who is now arguably better known for another of his roles, after he took over as Nick Tisley in Coronation Street in 2009.He has remained with the soap – bar a brief period away between 2017 and 2018 – ever since, with his character having a number of high-profile storylines in his decade on the cobbles. Prior to joining Corrie, Ben was a series regular on Casualty from 2005 to 2007, playing hospital boss Nathan Spencer. Alison Newman played Hazel Bailey Alison played ruthless football agent Hazel during the first four series of Footballers’ Wives. In 2008, she was cast in ITV drama Rock Rivals, which was based on the lives of celebrity judges on an X Factor-style show. The same year, Alison also made her first appearance as DI Samatha Keeble on EastEnders. The character returned in 2014 and led the investigation into Lucy Beale’s murder, last appearing in 2016. Alison has also had a number of guest roles in dramas including Holby City, Call The Midwife, Casualty and New Tricks.John Forgeham played Frank Laslett John had roles in number of classic shows including Z Cars, Crossroads and The Avengers prior to taking on the role of club owner Frank Laslett in the first three series of Footballers’ Wives. He went on to appear on Sky football drama Dream Team in 2005, with his final credited TV role coming in 2012, when he appeared in an episode of Doctors. Sadly, John died in 2017 at the age of 75, after falling out of bed at his home. Julie Legrand played Jeanette DunkleyJulie certainly made the role of deranged nurse Jeanette Dunkley her own, and stayed with the medical theme after leaving the show in 2005. In 2009, she made her first guest appearance in Doctors, before returning as a different character ten years later. A year later, Julie began appearing in Holby City as Paula Burrows and continued to make episodic appearances up until 2014. She has also popped up in Call The Midwife in 2018, playing the character of Ruth Gelin in the first episode of the seventh series. Julie also appeared in David Tennant’s final episode of Doctor Who in 2010, when she starred as The Partisan. Sarah Barrand played Shannon Donnelly-LawsonSarah joined the cast of Footballers’ Wives in the third series, with her character initially serving as a parody of Coleen Rooney. After the show came to an end, Sarah filmed ITV documentary Date With The Dalai with co-star Zoe Lucker in 2006, with the two stars journeying across India before watching the Dalai Lama’s Spring teachings.Since then, Sarah has appeared in a number of independent films including Stag Night, Caught In The Act, and The Kid. She also works as a voiceover artist, lending her voice to a number of commercials. Jamie Davis played Harley LawsonBetween 2006 and 2012, Jamie, who played Harley Lawson on the show, had a number of one-episode roles in series including The Bill, Two Pints Of Lager And A Packet Of Crisps, Misfits, Doc Martin and Shameless. However, by far his biggest role was that of Max Walker in Casualty. While he’s previously played a different character on the BBC drama in 2009, Jamie joined the cast full time in 2013, sticking with the show for five years. Ben Richards played Bruno MilliganLike many of his Footballers’ Wives co-stars, Ben found himself in The Bill when the show ended. After two years playing Bruno, Ben took on the role of PC Nate Roberts from 2007 until shortly before the series’ final episode in August 2010. In January 2012, Ben revealed that he had been diagnosed with bowel cancer and underwent surgery and treatment before he entered remission a year later. Since then, Ben has been in Hollyoaks, playing regular character Ben Bradley from 2014 to 2016.Helen Latham played Lucy MilliganHelen was a later addition to the Footballers’ Wives cast, joining the show in the fourth series. After it finished, it was a while until we saw Helen on screen again until she popped up for a guest appearance on Casualty in 2011. Since then, she’s had a handful of roles in short films and TV movies. Phina Oruche played Liberty BakerPhina’s time on Footballers’ Wives may have been short, but thanks to her outrageous character Liberty, it sure was memorable. Following the conclusion of the series, Phina landed the role of Gabby Sharpe in Hollyoaks in 2010, and popped up in Doctors in 2012. In 2016, Phina debuted her one woman show called Identity Crisis at the Edinburgh Festival and NYC Soho’s Fringe festival, which garnered five-star reviews.  She also starred in Irish drama Taken Down in 2018, playing the role of Marvellous. Phina has also served as a columnist in the Liverpool Echo, and has also presented and produced on the city’s BBC radio station. Chucky Venice played Tremaine Gidigbi Chucky – now known by the name Charles Venn – has had an enduring career since his one-series stint on Footballers’ Wives came to an end when the show was cancelled. In the immediate years that followed, he had minor roles in Hollywood films Bourne Ultimatum and The Dark Knight. In 2012, he began appearing in EastEnders as Bianca Jackson’s ex-boyfriend Ray Jackson, staying on the Square for just over a year.From there, Charles joined the cast of Casualty in 2015 as nurse Jacob Master, who he continues to play to this day. In 2018, Charles was also a contestant on Strictly Come Dancing, where he finished in sixth place with partner Karen Clifton. READ MORE: The Definitive Ranking Of Footballers' Wives' 20 Wildest Moments 12 Camp Classics We Need Back On TV To Inject Some Fabulousness Into The Schedules Stop Everything – A Footballers' Wives Musical Is Officially Happening

I Have No Good Excuse To Wallow During Covid-19 But I Am Because It Sucks
“We’ve taken up knitting!” beams my mother, craning the camera to show me her latest creation over Facetime. It’s a hot water bottle cover and despite its questionable shape, it’s an achievement. I can’t help but feel a pang of internal frustration. Sat in my comfortable apartment with a secure job, doting boyfriend and no children to worry about home-schooling, I am ashamed to say that I have felt utterly dejected since Covid-19 took over our lives. Having always prided myself on being adaptable and embracing change, I can’t seem to shift the persistent gloom that descends on me when I wake up each morning.This might be partly down to the news cycle. I’ve taken to the habit of scrolling through the news as soon as I get up, far more so than I did before the outbreak. The live updates are as bleak as ever. An increase in cases, an increase in deaths and a message from the British government that this is only the beginning. Yet so many members of the population have stepped up to the challenge and are responding to this crisis with determination and drive. Key workers are leaving the house each day, selflessly putting themselves at risk to help keep the population safe. As a driven individual with goals and aspirations, I’m struggling to find a purpose in this disconcerting time. Normally,  my routine involves a long commute to work followed by a busy day of meetings with my colleagues. After work, I’m straight to the gym for my daily workout before rushing home to cook dinner and cram in a bit of downtime before I’m back at it the next day. The change of pace I can cope with, but staying at home and doing my bit to protect the population somehow feels like a bit of a cop-out when people are risking their lives each day to ensure hospitals have resources and supermarkets are stocked.  The world has changed significantly in the past few weeks, and I think it’s important to remind ourselves that we’ve barely had time to register what’s going on, let alone figure out how to navigate the next few months.I also know that people are experiencing huge upheavals to their life, whether that be losing their jobs, having to close their businesses or juggling home-schooling children with a full-time career. I’ve not had to do any of this. I’m young, healthy and have a job that easily adapts to a work from home set-up. If anyone should be able to seize the moment and be a shining example in this time of uncertainty, it’s me. Yet, I feel hopeless.I’m grieving for my past life, the one where I had the freedom to travel and roam, and to plan ahead without ambiguity or constraints.As I scroll through Instagram, I’m reminded that even my creative and resourceful efforts at home are far from adequate. Each social media post showcases a newly-adopted pastime more impressive than the last. It’s like Britain’s Got Talent is airing during lockdown, and everyone I follow facies themselves a contender. Whether it be learning Latin or mastering the headstand, my friends seem to be embracing this unwelcome change and using it as an opportunity to better themselves. Somehow, I don’t think making my way through everything on Netflix and Amazon Prime has quite the same impact.The world has changed significantly in the past few weeks, and I think it’s important to remind ourselves that we’ve barely had time to register what’s going on, let alone figure out how to navigate the next few months. I’m wallowing, just a little bit, and I’m going to cut myself some slack.I think that it’s ok to feel anxious, uncertain and disappointed. It’s easy to feel lost in a time where all plans are on hold and normality is lacking. Staying at home is the right thing to do for the greater good, and although it goes against the flow of our busy routines and active lifestyles, if there was ever time to take a step back and binge watch series to your heart’s content, I have to accept that it’s now.And so, as I end the FaceTime with my parents, I try not to berate myself for not having something to show from my time in lockdown. Who knows, perhaps I’ll even invest in a pair of knitting needles.Related... It's Totally Normal To Feel Weird, Anxious Or Scared Right Now.
