Ewan McGregor swaps the daggy Jedi robes for a stylish white suit in Halston. This new limited series from Glee creator Ryan Murphy is based on the life of the legendary New York fashion designer who, like Cher and Madonna, went only by a single name. Halston rose to prominence in the '70s and '80s thanks to his minimalist designs, often made of era fabric faves like cashmere or Ultrasuede, and luxurious brand image, which captured the imagination of the rich and famous. His clothes were worn by icons such as Elizabeth Taylor, Liza Minnelli and Jackie Kennedy, while the public was won over by his glitzy party lifestyle. But the good times never last and a hostile takeover battle forces him to fight to not lose everything, including his single name. Streaming from tomorrow.
This new family-friendly game show aims to pick up where old-school favourites such as It's in the Bag left off.
Hosts Luke Bird and Marcia Hopa will put contestants through their mental and physical paces in a series of quizzes and challenges that will win them prizes. They'll then be given the temptation of swapping their sure-thing for a chance at the lucky dip. The twist being that they could get something fabulous or they could flunk out with a booby prize. "There's a whole lot of energy to this show that promises to get people off their seats and competing for the goodies in a way that will leave viewers at home in tears of laughter," Bird says. Expect drama and lols as contestants ask themselves one question: "Do I feel lucky?" Premieres tonight at 7.30 PM.
