Celebrity Big Brother housemates set 'Big in Japan' task

Celebrity Big Brother housemates set 'Big in Japan' task

The Celebrity Big Brother housemates have been set a hoax task today.

The celebrities have been told that the show is airing in Japan as well as the UK and that it has become a huge ratings success.

Big Brother has informed the housemates that they now have a cult following due to their overnight success and are all now "big in Japan".

They will be tricked into thinking a Japanese TV show called Super Chat has come to interview them in the house.

One housemate will be in on the hoax and must choose the three most gullible housemates. The rest of the house will then have to convince the chosen housemates that the task is real.

They will only pass the task if they successfully get the chosen three to complete outrageous stunts as part of their interviews.

If housemates successfully pass their task, they will be rewarded with a karaoke party, sushi and alcohol for the evening.

The Voice UK coaches formed a supergroup to launch the BBC show.

'The Voice UK' coaches 'form supergroup' at London auditions

The Voice UK coaches formed a supergroup to launch the BBC show.

Jessie J, Tom Jones, Danny O'Donoghue of The Script and teamed up to perform a cover of the Black Eyed Peas song 'I Gotta Feeling', The Sun reports.

The performance took place during auditions at the BBC Television Centre in London on Thursday (January 19).

"It was incredible to see such big names in music perform together," an onlooker said. "Hopefully this has set the bar for the rest of the show.

"Everyone was jumping out of their seats and dancing along. It was really exciting. The whole concept seems to be very different from The X Factor, which will be very refreshing."

Reggie Yates - who is co-hosting the competition alongside Holly Willoughby - recently suggested that The Voice will be more "credible" than The X Factor and its sister programme Britain's Got Talent.

Speaking to Digital Spy at the launch of BGT yesterday, Simon Cowell admitted that he feared going head-to-head with The Voice.

"I recognise [The Voice] as a challenge. The BBC must be confident because they have put it up against this show," he said.

"They want to make a competition out of it. So we've got to make [Britain's Got Talent] better. Everyone benefits because of that."

The Voice UK is expected to air on BBC One in the spring.

Dappy to judge urban talent show?

Dappy to judge urban talent show?

Dappy is reportedly in talks to become a judge on a new urban singing contest.

The N-Dubz star has apparently been approached by Sky to front the show, which will feature hip-hop talent competing for a record deal.

"A friend of Dappy's let slip he's been approached for a new reality TV show which will see rappers and R&B lyricists battle it out for a record contract," a source told the Daily Star.

"TV bigwigs think he will bring the same success that Tulisa has to The X Factor. A host of names are being thrown around as to who'll join Dappy on the panel.

"These will include Sugababe Amelle Berrabah, Amerie and the Grammy-winning US producer Rodney Jerkins [Darkchild]. Rodney has a host of huge names under his bow including Beyoncé, Lady GaGa, Jennifer Lopez and Kanye West."

Dappy recently revealed that his new single 'Rockstar' pays homage to Amy Winehouse.

'Pan Am' Laura's nude pics come back to haunt her

'Pan Am' Laura's nude pics come back to haunt her

Photography has helped Laura (Margot Robbie) from the beginning on "Pan Am." It was her striking pictures early in the series that landed her on the cover of LIFE magazine. But it appears that her love for being in front of the camera will soon get her in trouble.

In an exclusive first look at Sunday's (Jan. 22) episode, those nude photos Laura referred to any number of episodes ago come back to haunt her when they're displayed at an art gallery. While the pictures are quite lovely, Laura never thought they'd go public. So when she sees the entire collection up, Laura delivers the response you'd expect - abject terror.

As for other story lines, Colette (Karine Vanasse) looks to get over Dean (Mike Vogel) by befriending a mysterious male passenger. Maggie (Christina Ricci), never one to be shy about her opinions, tells Ted (Michael Mosley) she has concerns about his relationship with Amanda (Ashley Greene).

'Dancing On Ice': Matthew Wolfenden 'shaken up' after injuring partner

'Dancing On Ice': Matthew Wolfenden 'shaken up' after injuring partner

Dancing On Ice contestant Matthew Wolfenden has been left "shook up" after injuring his professional partner Nina Ulanova in training.

The Emmerdale actor revealed on Twitter that he accidentally dropped his DOI colleague while rehearsing a lift on Thursday (January 19).

"Had a shocker of a training session today!" he wrote. "Dropped @NinkaUlanova out of a big lift that's in our new routine, she's just a bit winded... but it shook me up a lot, just shows how dangerous this ice skating can be! She's a little hard nut though! X x"

When his DOI rival Heidi Range asked if the pair were hurt in the slip-up, Wolfenden replied: "I'm ok, it was @ninkaulanova who took the brunt of the fall! She was fine though. Shook me up though!"

Ulanova also mentioned the incident on her Twitter, writing: "Great session with @MrMattWolfenden some nice lifts in! Dangerous? Yes! But I love it! Give up not in my dictionary!"

Wolfenden - who finished top of the judges' scoreboard in last week's show - has ruled out skating topless during Dancing On Ice.

Dancing On Ice continues Sunday (January 22) at 6.10pm on ITV1.

'Glee' romance twist climax spoiled?

'Glee' romance twist climax spoiled?

Glee star Lea Michele has been spotted wearing an apparent wedding band on her ring finger during filming, seemingly confirming that her character Rachel Berry accepts Finn Hudson's marriage proposal.

Viewers were left stunned when Finn (Cory Monteith) popped the question at the cliffhanger climax to the Fox show's latest episode 'Yes/No', which aired in the US on January 17.

n images published today from the shooting of Glee's Valentine's Day special, Michele can clearly be seen wearing a ring that strongly resembles the one seen on the show.

Fans will not discover Rachel's answer until January 31 at the earliest, when the next episode is shown stateside.

Glee's UK return date has yet to be confirmed, with Sky1 saying only that it will air in early 2012.

Discussing the plot twist recently, Monteith said that he believes Finn proposed because he is anxious about the future.

"Finn has some real, real feelings for Rachel that lead toward it," he said. "But I think he's also trying to hang on to something. He's trying to keep the love locked down."

Monteith also revealed that he and Michele "phoned each other screaming" when they were told of the surprise.

The pair were this month confirmed to be returning for Glee's fourth season.

Christine Bleakley ignores 'Dancing on Ice' haters

Christine Bleakley ignores 'Dancing on Ice' haters

Christine Bleakley has admitted that she ignores online criticism about her Dancing on Ice role.

The former Daybreak presenter, who replaced Holly Willoughby on the ITV1 show, said she prefers to focus on positive comments rather than Twitter insults branding her "bland" and "rigid".

"The fuss is ridiculous," she told The Sun. "If two or three people are wanting to say something that is not nice out of ten million watching then that's fine. I was overwhelmed by the lovely comments I got and that's all I focus on.

"Absolutely I was nervous. There is that sense when you do a show that is already up and running and it's all new for you... definitely I was.

"After show number one I thought, 'I now have my bearings and I know where I want to be'."

Bleakley added that she feels "really lucky" to co-host Dancing on Ice with the "lovely" Phillip Schofield.

Ant & Dec keeping 'fingers crossed' for 11th NTA gong

Ant & Dec have told Digital Spy that they don't want to hand over their National Television Awards crown.

Dec added: "We won't turn it down if they offer it. But fingers crossed, you don't know."

David Walliams: 'Britain's Got Talent is real Little Britain'

David Walliams: 'Britain's Got Talent is real Little Britain'

David Walliams has told Digital Spy that Britain's Got Talent is "the reality version of Little Britain".

Walliams, who found fame on the BBC sketch show with Matt Lucas, joined the Got Talent judging panel this year alongside Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon.

Speaking about how he was persuaded to take part in the ITV1 reality show, Walliams said: "Simon said to me that this is the reality version of Little Britain.

"It's the same show really apart from the fact that me and Matt [Lucas] were acting and this is genuine eccentrics.

"That is why I wanted to be part of this show. I love eccentrics. I love the nutty people, I have a kinship with them."

Britain's Got Talent's auditions will take place around the UK throughout January and February.

The new-look judging panel - Cowell, Walliams, Holden and Dixon - will appear together on ITV1 for the first time in the spring.

'Once Upon A Time': Ginnifer Goodwin Exclusive On Snow White, Seven Dwarves, Romance & More

'Once Upon A Time': Ginnifer Goodwin Exclusive On Snow White, Seven Dwarves, Romance & More

Countless little girls dream of becoming princesses, but for Memphis-born Ginnifer Goodwin, all that wishing on a star during her formative years paid off. On ABC's "Once Upon a Time," she gets to play fairytale royalty every day. As both Snow White and her cursed alter-ego Mary Margaret, Goodwin is arguably the heart of the fantasy drama. Millions of fans tune in each week to watch the iconic love story unfolding between her characters and Prince Charming and his amnesiac real-world counterpart, David Nolan (both played by the dashing Josh Dallas).

The Sunday, Jan 22. episode, "7:15 A.M.," once again centers around Snow and Charming (and Mary Margaret and David) as the couple struggles to reconnect despite countless obstacles conspiring to keep them apart. In Fairytale Land, Charming is set to marry King Midas' daughter to keep his kingdom safe and in Storybrooke, Mary Margaret is trying to stay away from David, who is inconveniently married to someone else. Their happily ever after might be a long time coming, but their star-crossed romance creates pure magic when the two share the screen.

In between scenes on "Once Upon A Time's" chilly Vancouver set, Goodwin took the time to call and share some hints about what fans can expect from this week's episode and beyond, including Snow White's first meeting with seven familiar faces, and whether her Storybrooke character will start to remember her fairytale past anytime soon.

Warning: Spoilers ahead!

This week's episode centers around Prince Charming's impending wedding to another woman. How is Snow White dealing with that and what is her mindset?

Snow isn't dealing with Charming's impending wedding to another woman very well at all! She has ... how do I explain this without getting fired? [Laughs] She is doing all that she can to forget him and she, as she says, just cannot get him out of her head. And so she realizes that she needs a new tactic ... She needs to try new things. That idea is what she's grappling with at the beginning of the episode. And in our parallel world of Storybrooke, Mary Margaret is finding that she is also unable to get David Nolan out of her head. And she's not quite as strong as Snow White, of course. She succumbs to her obsession and as I believe it's revealed in the promos, she becomes something of a stalker, which is great fun. We left David Nolan and Mary Margaret in this place where he rejected her after building up her hopes, but despite that, at every turn, every time she runs into David, she can't help but smile. She can't help but to get lost in him. She can't help but almost forget what he's done to her, despite everything. You know, she's just drawn to him and his very energy makes her so happy and so she doesn't know how he feels about her, but she does know she likes to be in his presence ... So instead of trying to find an active way to forget him as Snow White is doing at the top of the show, Mary Margaret is indulging in the feelings that she gets by being around him.

Of all the characters, I think viewers have latched on to Mary Margaret and David -- and Snow and Charming -- as the show's emotional center, so it's great to see another episode exploring their story. I know those are the scenes that I look forward to most every week.

Oh, that's wonderful to hear! I agree. Whenever I read a script, I have to say I'm most excited by those scenes, because as an audience member, of course, it's their story that I'm attached to. That is why I wanted to play that role -- or roles; it's a love story and I love a good obstacle!

We're also going to see the dwarves properly for the first time this week. Can you tell us about your scenes with them and how they might differ from the dwarves that people picture when they think of Snow White?

It happens somewhat differently than it did in the animated feature and yet, I believe that we justified the Disney animated feature. But we let you know that they had actually met before the moments in which you meet her in the Disney animated feature where she's cleaning their house. We find out that they really can relate to each other, Snow White and the dwarves. They really find that they have a lot in common and they really bring out the best in each other. I really can't say anything about how they meet because it's such a big part of the story; it's such a wonderful, wonderful reveal. Oh my goodness, I have to say I was so -- this is sort of a side note -- but I was actually moved when we shot the "Snow White and the Seven Dwarves" scene. You know, the little girl in me was because that relationship is a relationship that we think we know so well. To really explore it was incredibly satisfying to my inner eight-year-old.

In fact ... since it is the first time that we did come together as a group in filming, the actors who played the dwarves -- The Super Seven, Team Seven; they have all kinds of wonderful nicknames, our gang -- they presented me with the most incredible gift. They gave me this wonderful Snow White doll and they also gave me this Snow White journal, and in the journal on a different page, each of them did a self-portrait of himself as that dwarf and wrote me a note about our all coming together to start this journey. It's the most special thing in the world. Those guys all really do take care of me. We’re all freezing, freezing, freezing cold in the Vancouver woods and they're handing me hot chocolate and coffee in the middle of the night. Everybody takes care of each other here; it's such a loving set -- it's like exactly the fairytale you would imagine. Like, it's four in the morning and everyone's got frostbite and everyone is giggling.

Regina has had her sights set on Emma for the past few episodes. Is there anything coming up for Regina with Mary Margaret again in Storybrooke?

We're always tied together. The throughline is always that Regina's going to do everything she can to keep this curse intact. But I feel that in this point in the story, from what I recall, Regina and Emma are more focused on the new stranger who's come to town: Who is he and what is he here to do? Because people are never supposed to come and go unless they are of this place, unless they are of our world. So it is such a major event that he's arrived.

Speaking of which, can you tease anything about his arrival or how that might tie into your story, if at all?

I'm actually not tied into that story yet, but I will say this: I had a million theories about who the stranger was, and they were all wrong! What the creators' intention is with that character is so much better than anything I could have come up with. You know, they don't tell us everything, but they help us with the things that we need to know in order to represent our characters in the way that they need us to; but every once in a while, I kept pestering about who the stranger is and finally, I got some little whispers. Oh my goodness, is it good!

We haven't really seen Mary Margaret have many run-ins with Mr. Gold in Storybrooke. Have you had an opportunity to work with Robert Carlyle further yet in either iteration?

I have. I've had several scenes; not a ton, but I've had several. Oh my gosh, he is such a freaking joy to work with, that man.

He seems like he's having so much fun ...

He is! He is such a terrifying villain and in real life, he is the most generous, fun human being, full of warmth and love. It is so invigorating and inspiring to see him turn on Rumpelstiltskin and Mr. Gold. I have to actually remind myself when we start rolling that I'm afraid of him in both worlds. I think that, in a way, in Fairytale Land, Snow White is afraid of him and yet, she can really hold her own. She's very good at masking her fear. Whereas Mary Margaret cannot hide very much, as meek as she is in some ways, as reserved as she is in some ways. So I have to actually remind myself, as I did yesterday when we were filming a scene together, "Oh no. I'm afraid of this man. He's not Bobby Carlyle. This is an actually a scary, cold human being."

Since Snow is so fearless in the flashbacks we've seen, while Mary Margaret is much more, as you said, reserved and kind of beaten down by the world she's living in, what are the challenges of playing a character within a character?

I think that the biggest challenge is that, while carrying Mary Margaret's insecurities, in real life, I think that I share more of Snow White's energy ... I will go back and forth playing both characters in one day ... You know, there are many ways in which Snow White is different, but once I'm turned into Snow White, I have to then work extra hard to crawl back inside of Mary Margaret and hide within her, because I'm not in the habit of doing that everyday, all day.

The episode on Jan. 29 introduces us to Snow's father, played by the fabulous Richard Schiff ...

Oh yes, my goodness I hope he comes back more. He's perfect as Snow White's father. And you know that Emilie de Ravin is going to guest star as Belle. I think that's in mid-February. Amy Acker from "Angel" is in a story that revolves all around Grumpy, which is also wonderful. We get all the best guest stars.

And it sounds as if it will be blending Snow White's story with a bit of "Aladdin." If I'm not mistaken, I think Snow's father has a run-in with a genie?

We do have a lamp ... I will tell you that there is a lamp in our story, but what I also love about what the creators have done is they have reintroduced characters you thought you knew in very surprising ways. So I will say that there is a lamp in our story, but I would not be able to define the character in a satisfying way verbally.

The Evil Queen has been dropping hints all season about this heinous thing Snow did to betray her. Can you give us a hint as to when we might discover what ruined things between them?

It's not coming up soon-ish. We will continue to unveil different pieces, but I think that that is something that they are saving for a much later date. We will get clues along the way, for sure.

We had that wonderful moment at the end of last week's episode where Mary Margaret admired Emma's baby blanket and kind of had that flash of connection. Are we going to start seeing her memories actually filtering through, or will it just be more of those kind of déjá vu moments?

I actually am not sure, because one thing I do not know is their plan for the merging of the worlds ... I'm not sure how soon they will merge the worlds and I hope that it's not too soon actually because I truly do watch the show every weekend and get swept up in the magic as much as our biggest fans. It is a really incredible thing to be part of something that's beyond the realm of what I can imagine, so when I see it on screen, it really does surprise me every single weekend. As far as Mary Margaret remembering, that's another thing. There are going to be steps in that direction certainly as the season progresses, but there are also going to be setbacks. The Queen is very powerful, and she's going to do everything she can to keep us from remembering ...

CSI: Miami Finale Shocker: [Spoiler] Will Destroy Horatio's Team!

CSI: Miami Finale Shocker: [Spoiler] Will Destroy Horatio's Team!

Raquel Welch is more than just a pretty face, folks. In fact, the big, bad momma she’ll be playing on CBS’ CSI: Miami (Sundays at 10/9c) could be deemed a downright dangerous beauty — in that she is poised to trigger the beginning of the end for Horatio’s band of crime-solvers.

Guest-starring later this winter as the Navarro family matriarch — aka mother of Diego (Carlos Bernard) mother and grandmother to “Miami Taunter” suspect Esteban (Kuno Becker) –  “All the roads of murder lead to her,” executive producer Marc Dube tells TVLine. Thus, when her path ultimately crosses with that of the CSIs, “We wonder if she’s involved, is she covering things up…? Or is she really trying to help us clear her good name? It’s a mystery throughout.”

One thing seems for certain: The Navarro clan, which has dogged H & Co. in Season 10, will have the very last laugh.

“[That storyline] is going to peak at the end of the year, when they hire a high-priced, high-profile law firm that’s going to wind up separating our team,” Dube reveals. “They find loopholes in the law and basically get the CSI team reassigned, so we’re going to see some friction there.”

And exactly how will CSI: Miami viewers be left hanging at season’s end? Will they wonder which team member has landed where? “We’ll see where the chips fall,” Dube answers. But until Season 11 — if the crime drama is renewed — “you’ll be left to imagine how they get picked up again.”

'Sherlock' executive Sue Vertue 'extremely worried' by 'Elementary'

'Sherlock' executive Sue Vertue 'extremely worried' by 'Elementary'

Sherlock producer Sue Vertue has described the upcoming US Sherlock Holmes series Elementary as "extremely worrying".

Elementary - which like Steven Moffat's recently-concluded BBC series is a modern take on the detective saga - was picked up by CBS on Tuesday (January 17).

The announcement prompted Vertue to quip on Twitter: "Mmm interesting CBS, I'm surprised no one has thought of making a modern day version of Sherlock before, oh hang on, we have!"

Vertue has now stated that although bosses from the US network have "made great assurances" that the shows will not overlap, she remains wary of the project.

"We understand that CBS are doing their own version of an updated Sherlock Holmes," she told The Independent. "It's interesting, as they approached us a while back about remaking our show.

"At the time, they made great assurances about their integrity, so we have to assume that their modernised Sherlock Holmes doesn't resemble ours in any way, as that would be extremely worrying. We are very proud of our show and like any proud parent, will protect the interest and wellbeing of our offspring."

While there appears to be an understanding between the Sherlock and Elementary teams at present, legal experts have warned that a copyright claim could occur if the new series infringes on the former's distinctive style.

"The concept of a new Sherlock Holmes is unprotectable," copyright specialist Margaret Tofalides notes. "But if the unusual elements of the BBC series - the modern settings, characters, clothes, plots and distinctive visual style - were closely reproduced in the CBS version, that could form the basis of a potential copyright claim."

Sherlock currently airs in the US on PBS.

Britain's Got Talent Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon: 'We won't be at war'

Britain's Got Talent Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon: 'We won't be at war'

Britain's Got Talent judges Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden have said that they are expecting the press to "pit [them] against each other".

The pair both insisted at the ITV1 show's launch in Manchester that they have a perfectly healthy relationship.

"Amanda is wonderful. We had breakfast, hung out and she is a girl's girl," Dixon told The Mirror. "The kind of person I could pick the phone up to ask anything. She told me everyone will try to pit us against each other but we are not having it."

Holden concurred: "I'm excited about Alesha. For years I've been the only girl between two egos and I've taken a lot of stick. It will be nice to have another girl."

Referring to her pregnancy, she joked: "I won't stand for any b**tard saying we're in a fashion war. I'm 40 and up the duff!"

Holden has also insisted that Dixon will not suffer the same fate as former Britain's Got Talent judge Kelly Brook, who was axed in 2009 after just six days on the panel.

"You'll have to talk to Simon Cowell about Alesha, he booked her," she said. "It's a difficult one, but I think she's probably got something else - a brain."

Back in November, Holden told Digital Spy of her hatred for "feuding girls" stories invented by the media.

"I can't bear when shows like this make out that girls are feuding behind the scenes," she said. "I'm a girls' girl and I wouldn't stand for it if the media tried to create a story like that with a show I was on."

Supernatural Hot Shots: Dean Meets His [Spoiler]!

Supernatural Hot Shots: Dean Meets His [Spoiler]!

Trust issues will be rearing their head again in the Feb. 3 episode of Supernatural (The CW, 9/8c), and we’ve got a sneak peek at the new gal creating drama for the Winchesters.

As the latest promo reveals, Dean’s one night stand with The Vampire Diaries‘ Sara Canning will have very big consequences — like instant fatherhood big.

But it also means trouble for Sam and Dean’s relationship, which experiences a bit of a role reversal.

In the installment, “Sam finds himself in the same situation that Dean was in with Amy,” Jared Padalecki teased to TVLine. “So where it was Dean trying to do the right thing that a hunter would do, even though Sam insisted that he trusted this girl, now we find Sam in that situation, where Dean’s like, ‘Hey, I trust this person,’ and Sam’s going, ‘Well, you’re not in your right mind.’”

Ruh-roh, is Dean’s spawn demonic? From the pained expression on his face in the last photo below, it looks like we may have another “Heart” situation on our hands.

TV Ratings: 'Shark Tank' Boosts ABC, 'Grimm' Jumps Double Digits

TV Ratings: 'Shark Tank' Boosts ABC, 'Grimm' Jumps Double Digits

"Chuck" hits season highs, but it's ABC that takes home the Friday victory.

ABC took home the ratings victory on Friday, usually reserved for CBS, which ran repeats of its dramas.

Shark Tank (6.2 million total viewers, 1.7 rating in adults 18-49 demographic) returned for season 3, up a dramatic 42 percent among adults 18-49 compared to its time period premiere in March last year (1.7 vs. 1.2). It was enough to take the 8 p.m, hour, topping closest competitor Fox's Kitchen Nightmares.

The season premiere of What Would You Do? (5.8 million, 1.6) managed a close No. 2 at 9 p.m. after NBC's Grimm, but drew its biggest audience since November 2010. Newsmagazine 20/20 (7.2 million, 1.8) broadcast a report about the Costa Concordia cruise ship tragedy, posting its second-highest ratings thus far this season -- and easily winning the 10 p.m. slot.

NBC placed second on the night on the strength of Grimm's ratings performance. Grimm (5.9 million, 1.8) notched its highest-rated and most-watched episode since Nov. 4 -- the series' second hour. Compared to the previous week, Grimm saw huge jumps of 27 percent in viewership (5.9 million vs. 4.6 million) and 29 percent among 18-49 (1.8 vs. 1.4). For the night, the hourlong drama tied with 20/20 as Friday's highest-rated telecast.

Chuck hit season highs, drawing 3.8 million viewers and a 1.1. Dateline (5.5 million, 1.4) also saw an 8 percent rise in the demo.

Fox's Kitchen Nightmares (3.9 million, 1.5) rose slightly, while Fringe (3.2 million, 1.1) remained steady from last week's series low.

'Sherlock' won't return in 2012, executive Sue Vertue reveals

'Sherlock' won't return in 2012, executive Sue Vertue reveals

Sherlock executive producer Sue Vertue has dismissed suggestions apparently made by husband Steven Moffat that the programme will return in 2012.

The showrunner was supposed to have said on Friday (January 20) that a third series of the BBC drama - which concluded last Sunday (January 15) - would air later this year.

Moffat also apparently claimed that scenes showing how Sherlock (Benedict Cumberbatch) survived his rooftop plummet in series two finale 'The Reichenbach Fall' had already been filmed.

In response to the comments, Vertue has taken to Twitter and clarified that a 2012 Sherlock return is "sadly unlikely".

"Sorry to be a killjoy but @steven_moffat didn't actually mean S3 of #sherlock would tx before end of year," she wrote. "I think that is sadly unlikely."

Moffat has, however, said that fans will not have to wait "that long" for the next series of Sherlock.

He confirmed this week that a third run of the show had been secretly commissioned along with its second last year.

'GMA' Contributor Elizabeth Smart Announces Engagement

The former kidnapping victim, will wed later this year, according to her rep.

Elizabeth Smart has her freedom, a job, and now she's found love.

The 24-year-old, who was abducted in 2002 at age 14 and spent nine months in captivity, announced that she got engaged last weekend and is planning to wed later this year, ABC News reports.

Smart, who is a paid contributor for Good Morning America, covering stories related to missing and exploited children, is not revealing the groom's name or any additional plans for the wedding.

"While [Smart] plans to be involved with her public advocacy work, she really feels she needs to keep her personal life private," her publicist, Chris Thomas said, but did also say "She is in seventh heaven. She's excited, she's enjoying life."

The Brigham Young University student was hired by ABC News in July of last year.

"She’ll help our viewers better understand missing person stories from someone with the perspective to know what a family experiences when a loved one goes missing," ABC News spokespersonJulie Townsend said at the time.
