Know Your Sh!t - With Alana and Lisa Macfarlane

Every time you have a 'number two', it can reveal important clues about many aspects of our health, from mental health and immunity to disease risk and digestive problems. Yet we're often too embarrassed to talk about it.

Alana and Lisa Macfarlane, are here to change all that. Know Your Sh!t is a pleasant, approachable, and lighthearted series that will teach people what is and isn't typical about our bowels and revolutionise our daily health habits by putting poo front and centre of their brave new TV clinic. They will be joined by a range of medical professionals who will provide expert diagnosis and counsel.

Each episode includes a different case study of a patient with a different complaint, but they all have something in common: they will all undergo a bowel movement test, and the results will put them on the road to better gut health and overall health as they receive advice and solutions from a team of experts. Along the way, Alana and Lisa will provide loads of lifestyle tips to help viewers improve their gut health as they follow their stories and follow their progress.

Presenters Alana and Lisa Macfarlane said: "We've been living in the world of gut health for years now, and we're bursting to take everyone on a journey of discovery – to educate, inspire and change lives like it has ours!"

Celebrity Juice Cancelled!

After an incredible 26 series on ITV2, the multi award-winning Celebrity Juice is going out on a high! The outrageous, channel defining panel-show which has been hosted for 14 years by the one and only Keith Lemon, is to conclude later this year with two fantastic farewell specials celebrating all of Juice's maddest moments.

The BAFTA and National Television Award-winning programme, which has almost 300 episodes, has seen Keith playing the craziest games and sharing the biggest laughs on-camera with stars like Ed Sheeran, Pamela Anderson, and Will Mellor. Celebrity Juice was founded by Keith and the original team captains Holly Willoughby and Fearne Cotton back in 2008. In season 24, the amazing Emily Atack and Laura Whitmore assumed the role permanently, but Juice had a fantastic cast of team captains prior to that, including Gino D'Acampo, Mel B, Paddy McGuinness, and Kelly Brook.

Keith Lemon said:
"I remember doing the first episode thinking wow that was fun! In the V/O in opening titles I said it was the best telly show on telly. Whatever you thought of it, it was definitely the best fun making it. An amazing team, and amazing guests, but all good things must come to an end. I'll miss it, and everyone so much, but on to the next chapter and I look forward to going out in style on the specials! All t' best and good luck with ya business!"

Sport Relief All Star Games: Birmingham 2022

This August, Sport Relief, Birmingham 2022 and the BBC are coming together to bring viewers a one off, All-Star version of the Commonwealth Games.

Two teams from the sports and entertainment industries will compete at the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games this summer to raise money for life-changing causes in Sport Relief All Star Games: Birmingham 2022 (1x60) on BBC One and BBC iPlayer. The teams will be captained by five-time Paralympic champion Ellie Simmonds OBE and double Olympic champion Dame Kelly Holmes.

The action will take place across Lee Valley Velopark for Cycling - Track, Alexander Stadium for Athletics, Arena Birmingham for Rhythmic Gymnastics, Smithfield for Basketball 3x3 and the NEC Arena for Table Tennis.

Only one team will emerge victorious and be crowned Sport Relief All Star Games: Birmingham 2022 Champions.

Ellie Simmonds OBE says: "I'm so excited to lead the Blue Team in the All-Star Games and feel really proud to be supporting Sport Relief again. I've been involved in Sport Relief for years, but I know this is going to be the most fun. I can't wait to get the team into training and make sure we all work really hard to raise as much money as we can… but also win! As much as I respect and admire Kelly – she's such an incredible role model for young athletes - I'll leave that at the door. Winning is all that matters. Bring it on!"

Dame Kelly Holmes says: "I love seeing people getting involved in sport and giving things a go – getting out of their comfort zone and just having fun. This competition is right up my street and it's a real honour to leading the Red Team. I've been a supporter of Sport Relief for such a long time now and know the work they support is completely life changing. I hear Ellie is determined for her team to win but I don't fancy her chances!".

The Lovers, a new Sky drama starring Johnny Flynn and Roisin Gallagher

Sky have announced the start of production for upcoming drama, The Lovers, starring Johnny Flynn (Beast, Emma) and Roisin Gallagher (The Fall, The Dry).

Following Seamus (Flynn), a handsome, conceited political broadcaster with what appears to be the ideal London life and a celebrity girlfriend, and Janet (Gallagher), a foul-mouthed, hilarious, Belfast supermarket worker who couldn't give a shit about anything much at all, including her life, the series contrasts their characters' lives.

Therefore, when Seamus abruptly enters Janet's world (literally over the wall and into her backyard), they clash right away but also discover that they are irresistibly drawn to one another.

This sensual, humorous, and combative love story, which is set in Belfast, is about two people who seem to be completely unsuited for one another but might actually be.

The series also stars Conleth Hill (Game of Thrones, Holding) as Janet's supermarket boss, Philip.

Miriam: Death of a Reality Star - Coming to Channel 4

Ch4 have commissioned a new 3 x 60 documentary series telling the story of Miriam Rivera, the world's first trans reality tv star, covering their life, death, and extraordinary legacy.

The series will reinstate Miriam as the protagonist of her own narrative—a trans trailblazer who is still widely regarded as an idol in the transgender community—using her own words and voice throughout.

There's Something About Miriam from 2004 stood out in a crowded field as one of the most contentious reality series of the early 2000s. Six gullible men competed to win the love of Miriam Rivera, a stunning supermodel from Mexico, in a lavish Ibiza villa. Miriam didn't tell the boys she was born as a male until the very end of the final episode.

What followed was global infamy and a tabloid savaging, and fifteen years later Miriam was tragically found dead in her mother's apartment in an apparent, (though disputed), suicide.

Miriam: Death of a Reality Star: is set against the backdrop of an extraordinary time in television history, this series will look at Miriam's life before, during and after reality TV fame.

Drawing on rich archive and with exclusive access to Miriam's family and close friends from the trans community, each episode will take the audience into the colourful worlds she inhabited – from New York drag ballroom to the streets of Mexico; trans porn to international escorting.

And running throughout will be the stranger-than-fiction, behind the scenes story of the show itself – its genesis, production and its fallout - at a time when attitudes to trans people were very different to today.
