UK Election: Hugh Grant, Steve Coogan, John Cleese & Alan Sugar Among Celebrities To Wade In Ahead Of December 12 Vote
As the UK heads back to the voting booths tomorrow to elect a government, film and TV stars have been declaring allegiances.

Polls have consistently pointed to a Conservative win at the general election, though a final major survey this morning predicted only a slim victory for the Tories over Labour. Brexit and the National Health Service have been the major campaigning points throughout.

Hugh Grant has been among the most vocal celebrity canvassers, urging the public to vote tactically to avoid a Conservative majority. The Four Weddings And A Funeral star took to the streets last week with Labour and Liberal Democrat politicians.

Grant was asked this week about Conservative leader Boris Johnson recreating a scene from Love Actually as part of his campaign. “I thought it was quite well done, very high production values, but clearly the Conservative Party have an awful lot of money. Maybe that’s where the rubles went.

Is the Drake Effect Enough to Get Us a Second Season of Top Boy? Here's What We Know

  • Popsugar
Netflix's first season of British drama Top Boy premiered on Sept. 13, and it's safe to say that it's a hit. Fans of the original series, which aired on Channel 4 in the UK between 2011 and 2013, agree that it was worth the six-year wait, and there are plenty of new viewers who are just as obsessed. But the question that has been left on everyone's mind is "will there be a second season?" It's still early days, so it's not surprising that Netflix hasn't announced whether they will greenlight a follow-up season yet, but given how well the series has been received so far, we're quietly confident Netflix will give the people (us) what we want.

The first two seasons - which were renamed Top Boy: Summerhouse by Netflix ahead of the latest season's release - each have four episodes, whereas the newest season (which is confusingly now referred

Drake Is Top Boy’s Number One Fan - but Does He Have a Cameo in the Show, Too?

  • Popsugar
Top Boy has been making waves this week after Netflix dropped the long-awaited third installment of the British drama. Fans of the original series, which ran for two short seasons on Channel 4 in the UK, were excited to head back to East London to check in with Sully and Dushane.

If you keep seeing Drake's name appearing alongside any mention of Top Boy, there's a very good reason for that. While the rapper doesn't appear in the show itself, he was the main driving force behind the show being revived. At the London premiere in September, Drake said he was disappointed when the show abruptly ended at the end of season two. After a brief Twitter exchange with Ashley Walters, who's played Dushane in the show since its premiere in 2011, Drake was on a mission to bring Top Boy back. Fast forward to today, and not only is he

‘Bulletproof’: Noel Clarke Brings His Groundbreaking British Series to the U.S.

‘Bulletproof’: Noel Clarke Brings His Groundbreaking British Series to the U.S.
For several years, British stars Noel Clarke and Ashley Walters have talked about producing a British version of “Bad Boys,” the Will Smith and Martin Lawrence buddy action movie franchise which includes two films with a third on the way. It’s a conversation that began in the early 2010s, and one ongoing key question was: Would their take would be a film or a TV series?

And after being told repeatedly by executives that they couldn’t sell a show with two black leads, that question was finally answered when British broadcaster Sky One picked up what would become the groundbreaking series “Bulletproof” in early 2018, premiering the six-episode action-drama in May of last year.

An instant hit, the first episode drew a cumulative average audience of 1.59 million viewers, making it the largest Sky One audience of year at the time, according to the network, and it was subsequently renewed for a six-episode second season.
