On Thursday 17 January 2019 an independent comedy series, Rebound, made its debut on YouTube.
The Andrew Connor written programme has been watched over one thousand times since it was released.
Today, Friday 14 June 2019, almost five months later, Rebound has won its first gong, at the prestigious Queen Palm International Film Festival.
Steven Gidwaney, an actor from the Droylsden area of Greater Manchester, has been awarded Best Supporting Actor for his portrayal of Lazzy in Rebound.
Steven took to his personal Facebook to proudly announce his impressive victory and gone on to say:
"Over the moon to announce that after receiving the nomination for Best Supporting Actor in Rebound....IVE WON!!!" [sic]
The, now, award-winning actor thanked those who made "the opportunity of a lifetime" possible:
"BIG thanks to Laurel Palm for the Gold Award and for the recognition! Also a MASSIVE thank you to Andrew Ball & Andrew Connor for giving me the opportunity of a lifetime!" [sic]
This is not the only award Rebound celebrated today.
Franny Treymaine, who deliciously played Jasmine - the antagonist - won big at Queen Palm too. She bagged the silver Best Supporting Actress award.
Franny left a brief but dignified completely-not-like-Jasmine response on her Facebook.
The lead protagonist, Andrew Connor, has enjoyed his Best Actor award in the bronze category for his appearance as Ryan in Rebound. Andrew, who is not letting this win go to his head simply tweeted on social networking site, Twitter, "I WON!!!" in an Internet meme style image.
Rebound's production team members, Adam Padley & Declan Bell, were given acknowledgements for their work on the show. Adam & Declan won bronze for Best Editing and silver for Best Music, respectively.
You can stream Rebound, free-of-charge, on YouTube.
For the first time in the programme's 16 year history, Anthony McPartlin won't be involved with his long-time friend fronting the series.
Declan Donnelly won't be going down-under alone for this year's I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.
ITV show bosses have selected Holly Willoughby as his 2018 co-presenter.
Dec has more than proved he can fly solo as he hosted the final two episodes of Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway and presented the live finals of Britain's Got Talent. Dec received praise en masse from the viewing public and despite what many viewers have said about Dec presenting solo, ITV bosses have always believed presenting I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here was a "two-man job".
Holly Willoughby becomes the first female to host the popular jungle show.
Holly and Dec have been friends for many years, they have the same agents at James Grant Management so it's safe to say they know each other very well.
The banter Dec and Holly have on-screen is hilarious and no doubt they'll put on a fun 3 weeks in Australia for viewers back in Great Britain watching on ITV and STV.
As of press time, Holly and Dec are yet to comment on their Australian excursion but when they do AndyGibsonTV.com will have their remarks.
Ant has taken time off from television and radio appearances due to ill health and personal issues. AndyGibsonTV.com extends its well-wishes to Mr. McPartlin.
Now I'm A Celebrity has 100% of their presenter quota, who'll be joining Phillip Schofield on This Morning for 3 weeks?
I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here returns to ITV & STV later this year.
This Morning airs weekdays on ITV & STV from 10:30.
Speaking today at the Edinburgh TV Festival, Charlotte Moore announced a new documentary series for the BBC.
Northumbria Police has granted unprecedented access to 72 Films to produce a new landmark police series for BBC One.
In style and tone, the series will go way beyond adrenaline-fuelled blue light stories to offer the compelling, surprising and human stories of modern policing against a backdrop of fewer resources and the changing nature of the job.
Intimate and honest, the focus will be on the vastly different types of policing that takes place across one of Britain’s biggest police forces.
With depleted numbers, the force is expected to cover everything from challenging urban crime in Newcastle and Sunderland, issues arising from the social deprivation of some of Britain’s poorest areas, hidden crimes the public rarely see and the policing of a huge rural area with swathes of stunningly beautiful countryside and coastline. And they are coming up with ever more creative ways to do it.
With access to units and officers across the entire force, from homicide to human trafficking, the marine unit to the control room - which is expected to handle over 1 million calls this year - this six-part series will cover a breadth of cases and stories while offering the audience a chance to see the human side of police work through its drama, challenges, frustrations and successes.
Charlotte Moore, Director of BBC Content, says: "BBC One will bring exhilarating real life drama to screens with a new documentary series that follows one of Britain's biggest police forces on the ground responding to a myriad of daily challenges."
John Douglas, Executive Producer says: “We are really excited to making this series for BBC One. It’s a unique police force serving two major cities, and a vast rural area. It presents real challenges to the force, and allows us to understand the different policing issues that arise in the city as well as the countryside.”
Northumberland Cops (w/t) 6x60' is a 72 Films production for BBC One.
The Executive Producer is John Douglas.
It was commissioned by Charlotte Moore, BBC Director of Content and Clare Sillery, Head of Commissioning, Documentaries.
British soap operas have a unique following like no other in the World and Coronation Street is not the exception.
Some avid viewers of the World's longest running weekly soap opera like to express their feelings and dedication to their favourite characters and storylines by creating customised videos with their most liked scenes or actors.
Recently, Coronation Street supporter, Hannah Lucy, has been producing some of her own customised videos to show her support but she isn't getting to enjoy them being online as someone on social media site, Instagram, has been illicitly downloading Hannah's videos and re-uploading them on their Instagram page.
It is unknown who the culprit is. It is unknown if it is a man, woman or a group of people - all we know for certain is their Instagram handle is "carchelle.editsx".
Hannah Lucy, on Twitter, has verbalised her frustration in Tweets regarding carchelle.editsx's fraudulent behaviour to her near 1,500 followers.
AndyGibsonTV.com stepped-in and attempted to assist Hannah in her struggle however Instagram's report feature is very lacklustre. It doesn't provide an adequate option to select such a thing as "content removal" based on Intellectual property being uploaded which is very disappointing on Instagram's part.
Hannah is now forced to implement a DOG (Digital Overlay Graphic) on her videos to indicate that she is the content creator and to stop people like "carchelle.editsx" from doing what they're doing. Including DOGs in certain videos is very time consuming and can cause problems in the rendering of digital videos.
AndyGibsonTV.com suspects "carchelle.editsx" has more than one Instagram account so please be cautious of nameless profiles as 'their' content is highly likely to belong to somebody else.
