Anyone who watched The Graham Norton Show a few weeks ago would have seen one of Norton’s guests, Tracey Ullman, discussing her new comedy sketch show. Ullman’s interview was followed by a clip which showed the comedienne, looking like a dead ringer for Dame Judy Dench, in a very funny sketch in which Dench was caught shoplifting
Now South African viewers have the chance to watch all six half-hour episodes, when Tracey Ullman’s Show premieres exclusively on ITV Choice (DStv 123) on Friday, March 18 at 21h00. Two episodes will be shown back-to-back each week for three weeks.
The UK is a melting pot of characters and cultures. Each episode of Tracey Ullman’s Show follows some of those characters, sometimes through their day, sometimes for a single moment. The series will feature warm and entertaining characters that are observational and recognisable; truthful, with a dose of eccentricity.

Laureus editorial content is available for media use provided credit is given; for example…..’Michael Johnson speaking to Laureus.com about the nominations for the Laureus World Sports Awards’
BERLIN, March 7, 2016 – Laureus World Sports Academy Member and athletics legend Michael Johnson describes Jamaican sprint star Usain Bolt as ‘the greatest’ in an exclusive interview on Laureus.com, after the triple Olympic sprint champion was nominated again for the Laureus World Sportsman of the Year Award.
In the interview, available for media use, Johnson reviews all the track and field Nominees for the 2016 Laureus World Sports Awards and looks ahead to the Rio Olympic Games. Among his comments:
“Neither Jesse Owens, Carl Lewis or myself has produced, in my opinion, the consistency and longevity that Usain Bolt has and so to this point he has to be considered the greatest. If he’s healthy, I don’t think anyone can stop him in the Rio.”
“Who can stop Bolt for the Laureus Award? I look at Stephen Curry and what he did last year, winning the NBA Championship, league MVP and just doing unbelievable things, where there are so many great athletes. He still stood out against the field.” Continue reading
Okmalumkoolkat aka Simiso Zwane has officially returned from Australia after serving his one month sentence in Tasmania. We are pleased to announce that he is in good health and ready to address his fans. His statement is as follows:
I am writing this letter to my fans as Simiso Zwane, not as Okmalumkoolkat. I say this because it was Simiso Zwane who was out there in that Tasmanian prison.
Now, I know there has been speculation and misconception about my case. I was charged with assault with intent of indecency and assault with intent. I fully understand the magnitude of this issue. I have had time by myself to reflect on things most important to me and I am working through everything. I have served my time in jail in another continent and have endured hardships of the sentence that was handed to me. I would like to move on with my life. Continue reading
