David DIY Woes

It seems that Tenth Doctor David Tennant can’t do DIY. Which given he lives in a nice flat in Wales and another in London while acting on various jobs is hardly a surprise. He doesn’t get weekends like the rest of us. No, if the Sonic Screwdriver wielding David Tennant needs a shelf putting up,…

Lily Allen and James Corden

[singlepic=33,320,240,,right]Reading the title brings a sense of dread to it, but Mong and Bint hack James Corden has been rumoured to be working with frog mouthed daughter of the Sheriff of Nottingham (Sit down?!
