They were beloved the world over for getting into “another fine mess”, whether painfully pushing a piano up a driveway or joining the Foreign Legion. And now a north-east filmmaker has spoken about his delight at the news his latest work, Stan and Ollie, which chronicles the life of Laurel and Hardy, will have its world premiere at the BFI London Film Festival later this year. Peterhead’s Jon S Baird, who previously directed the award-winning movie Filth, has been working on this new project for several years. It stars Steve Coogan – of Alan Partridge fame – and as the comedy duo whose slapstick antics, pratfalls and classic one-liners made them Tinseltown darlings in the 1920s and 1930s.

The film tells the story of the duo’s journey around the UK and Ireland during their farewell tour in the 1950s, following the decline of their glittering screen career. It will gain its first screening during the closing night gala on October 21, prior to being shown in cinemas in the New Year. Mr Baird told The Press and Journal yesterday: “I’m thrilled to be able to have the world premiere in a city that I hold so close and one that I know Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy did too. “I am also really excited about showing it to the people of the north east when it is released in January as they have supported me incredibly from the start of my career. “Stan And Ollie, at its heart, is a love story between old friends, who just happen to be two of the most iconic comedic characters in Hollywood’s history.“ The premiere will take place at Cineworld in Leicester Square and be attended by Coogan and Reilly, along with other cast members. It brings to fruition a long-cherished ambition of Mr Baird to chart the highs and lows of the mercurial pair. He added: “It’s a fascinating story, one I never knew until I started looking into it. “Stan always played this slightly simple-minded person in the films. But, off screen, he was one of the shrewdest people you could imagine. “And, when you look at some of the work they did together, it was extraordinary. “I’m not sure they have been given enough credit for it. They are almost taken for granted, but they were fascinating characters.”
Holidaying like a pair of besties Holly Willoughby treated any withdrawal symptoms This Morning fans may be having as she shared cute holiday snaps with her co-host Phillip Schofield. And the good people of the internet are calling it ‘friendship goals.’ Holly buttered up her fans with pictures of Schofe doing his best fishy impression as the pair holidayed together during their long summer break from the brunch-time ITV show. The presenter and her family joined Phil, 56 and his crew in Portugal for a vacay. Taking to Instagram this morning Holly showed off her marine photography skills and posted a picture of Phil swimming under the water while pulling a funny face. Another snap showed the pair reunited in the pool as they enjoyed a late night swim – it’s not the This Morning sofa but it’s sure good to see them back together.
One cheeky fan commented under the pictures: ‘Fishy wishy!!!!!!’ ‘I miss you guys wen your not on this morning,’ added another. While a third added: ‘Wish I was on holiday with you both #friendgoals.’ Phil had been spending the last few days enjoying the European sun with his daughter Ruby when Holly, her three children and husband Dan joined them on their trip abroad making it one big family holiday. In fact, Phil’s holiday looked so luxurious we would have joined him as well! Holly and Phil have six weeks this summer away from their hit show so they can spend time with their families during the school holidays. Eamonn Holmes and his wife Ruth Langsford – who usually do present the show on Fridays – have been standing in for the pair. Fans celebrated when the two briefly returned to This Morning yesterday for a pre-recorded appearance with pop giants and 1990s goddesses, All Saints. The four-piece are back with a brand new album, Testament – which, FYI, is absolutely perfect – and gave a rare TV interview with Holly and Phil for today’s instalment of the ITV daytime favourite, which was presented by Eamonn and Ruth. Holly’s famously close with the Never Ever chart-toppers, and couldn’t hold back the giggles as she tried to seriously grill her pals on the This Morning sofa.
The former solicitor, who quit her job to appear on the ITV2 show, might have been mugged off by Adam Collard and dumped after 16 days in the villa, but she’s already cashed in more than her old yearly salary. Watch the painfully awkward moment Love Island’s Samira Mighty watches Eyal Booker call her a snake behind her back… And it’s all through the wonderful world of Instagram. By now we’ve all heard whispers of the ludicrous amounts influencers get paid for their relentless #Ad’s and #Spon’s, and Rosie has pretty much confirmed the rumours are true. Instagram/Rosieawilliams Appearing on Radio 5 Live alongside last year’s winner Amber Davies, Rosie revealed: “I’ve been very lucky so far.” She added: “Mine’s like Instagram posts and events, etc. For me I went from a job that I studied eight years to achieve to doing this.” Instagram/Rosieawilliams Can you actually imagine spending eight years of your life studying for something, only to sack it all off reality TV? To be fair, we can hardly blame her for running to the money flow. And it turns out she may not have been bringing in as much coin as you would think in the legal profession.
“I feel like the legal profession is struggling at the moment… I’ve made my year earnings in a month, let’s just say that, doing this,” she revealed. Unfortunately, Rosie didn’t divulge exactly how much moolah she was getting before, but it’s probably safe to say she hasn’t gone without this month. Last year’s Love Island winner, Amber Davies, chimed in and made no secret of how much her financial situation has changed (and not just because she took home the £50k prize fund). “I came from a working class family, I’ve now been fortunate to earn a lot of money, I feel very grateful,” she said. She added: “I’ve been able to buy things and do things I’ve never been able to before”.
So the moral of the story, kids, is that there’s a hell of a lot of money to be made here, but is it worth getting mugged off on telly? Probably.
