Ready, steady… bake!

The Great British Bake-Off reaches it’s climax!

If you haven’t been taking much notice lately, you may have overlooked the fact that the UK seems to have gone baking mad… literally! With the vast array of cookery shows on TV these days, the stand out show of the year has been “The Great British Bake Off” which has seen its fair share of competitiveness, bickering and cookery disasters.

The show has now reached the final with the remaining three contestants fighting it out for the coveted title. It’s been a great series with some outstanding baking and it promises to be a spectacular climax. The nation can only guess what delights will be passing Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry’s lips or if anyone will crumble when it counts in the final bake off.

We know that the signature challenge, a classic pastry technique (that normally takes 24 hours) must be completed by the finalists in three. The technical challenges are harder than ever with no recipe and the showstopper dictates the perfect sponge, caramel, choux pastry and petits fours. Will it be sweet or sour for the final three? Find out on BBC One tonight at 8:00pm.

England continue their road to France 2016

The Premier League takes a break for the international fixtures this week. Amongst the teams playing are England who host Group E whipping boys San Marino at Wembley tomorrow at 19:45pm. As hot favourites, England are expected to win and win well – with most players fancying their chances of getting on the scoresheet, hoping to impress in time for their next fixture coming up against Estonia on Sunday evening in the Le Coq Arena in Tallinn at 17:00pm.

After a disappointing summer in Brazil, Roy Hodgson’s young revolution continues and aims to develop as a force once again on the international stage. Gone are the old guard of Steven Gerrard, Frank Lampard and Rio Ferdinand who all followed the modern and slightly odd trend of announcing their international retirements; as though it were their direct decision as to whether they wore the shirt of the Three Lions or not.

Now led by an older and possibly maturer Wayne Rooney, England has a younger and more dynamic looks of fresher and faster players, if a little raw. Hodgson knows they have a long way to go if they are to challenge for honours of any note but two good results in these next two qualifiers will help to achieve that end goal.

You can catch England’s first match this Thursday against San Marino from 7:15pm and their following match on Sunday against Estonia from 4:30pm only on ITV.

Keanu Reeves premieres in 47 Ronin on Sky

Movie buffs should keep an eye out tonight at 8:00pm on Sky Movies Premiere as the reworking of the Japanese tale of an outcast samurai and a suicidal mission to avenge their dead master is delivered with some fantastical sword-and-sorcery. With Reeves playing the lead role, he is wedged into the story as a half Japanese misfit, who joins the vengence-seeking samurai and falls in love with their betrayed lord’s daughter. However, it’s Rinko Kikuchi’s shape-shifting villain who puts the oomph into the plot and delivers some fast paced action.

For anyone looking to watch something a little different with plenty of adrenaline, this could deliver perfect combination punch. Check it out tonight on Sky.
