OHMYGOSSIP — The nominees and mentors for the Ivor Novello’s all-new Rising Star Award with Apple Music have been unveiled. The prestigious ceremony – which celebrates the music industry’s finest
OHMYGOSSIP — The nominees and mentors for the Ivor Novello’s all-new Rising Star Award with Apple Music have been unveiled.
The prestigious ceremony – which celebrates the music industry’s finest songwriters and composers – is set to honour and support the best new talent with each of the five nominees having their own industry mentor.
Chic legend Nile Rodgers is one of the mentors who has been partnered up with soul singer Amahla.
He said: “The Ivors, in my view, offer amongst the most prestigious accolades that a songwriter can receive anywhere in the world. To be able to get this acknowledgement at such an early stage in your career will be an important catalyst for this incredibly diverse range of new talent.
“All five of the Rising Star nominees being celebrated by The Ivors Academy and Apple Music have been selected on the strength of their creative talent, and I can’t wait to see them grow and give the world what I hope will be many of the great songs of the future.”
Pop star Griff is also up for the accolade and is being mentored by acclaimed singer, songwriter and producer Kamille.
The latter said: “Feeling part of a musical community is such a strong catalyst for having the confidence to really explore where your own music can take you. It’s great to be a part of this Rising Star Award program with Apple Music and focusing on acknowledging the potential of young and emerging music creators. This group of nominees offer such an interesting mix of style, genres and expressions, it’s really exciting to be a part of their journey.”
Fraser T. Smith – who has worked with the likes of Adele, Stormzy and Sam Smith, to name a few – is teamed up with genre-busting artist Mysie
He said: “It’s such an important and challenging time for music creators in the UK. Supporting emerging artists is vital to ensure that we remain such a vocal and diverse community. It’s wonderful to be working with Mysie on her journey and being part of a mentorship program that is focussed on fostering musical potential and helping it flourish.”
The nominees are completed by Manchester composer Carmel Smickersgill, who has a mentor in fellow composer and Ivor Novello-winner Anna Meredith, and Irish electronic artist lullahush, who is paired with film and television composer, David Arnold.
Helienne Lindvall, Chair of The Ivors Award Committee at The Ivors Academy, added: “I’m delighted that The Ivors Academy is working with Apple Music on the brand-new mentorship programme to empower young songwriters and composers. Right now, there are more opportunities but we are also facing more challenges than ever, so it’s more important than ever to support and champion music creators. Starting out in the music industry is notoriously difficult, so it really matters that we nurture songwriters and composers at the beginning of their careers. It’s fantastic that the Rising Star Award with Apple Music is recognising and promoting such extraordinary and inspiring young talent.”
A record-breaking 60 per cent of the entries were female.
The full nominations for the Ivor Novello Awards will be unveiled on July 20, with the winners across all categories announced on September 2.

OHMYGOSSIP — Sir Elton John will be honoured with a £1,000 gold coin.
The 73-year-old singer has admitted it is a “truly humbling milestone” after the Royal Mint chose to commemorate his long career with the latest in their Music Legends series of uncirculated money.
The coins have been designed by artist Bradley Morgan Johnson and he used a musical note design to create Elton’s iconic round glasses, topped with a straw boater hat and bow-tie on a Union flag background.
The ‘Goodbye Yellow Brick Road’ hitmaker said: “It really is a fabulous honour to be recognised in this way.
“The last few years have contained some of the most memorable moments of my career, and this is another truly humbling milestone on my journey.”
The commemorative coins will be available to purchase in Gold proof, Silver proof and Brilliant Uncirculated editions.
The cheapest have a face value of £5 and will sell for £13 while a one-kilo gold proof coin has a face value of £1,000 – but will cost a staggering £68, 865 to buy.
Clare Maclennan, Divisional Director of Commemorative Coin and The Royal Mint Experience, said: “Elton John is without a doubt a British music legend and is recognised as one of the most successful singer-songwriters of his generation. We are delighted to honour Elton’s significant contribution to British music on a UK coin.
“This is the second coin in The Royal Mint’s new Music Legends series, marking the work of our exceptional British musicians.”
In addition to the collection, Elton is also working with the RoyalMint to create a one-off collector’s piece, which will be auctioned off later this year to raise funds for the Elton John Charitable Trust.
In January, Queen were the first band ever to be honoured on UK currency when they were the first act chosen to be minted for the Music Legends series.

OHMYGOSSIP — Sam Heughan is the fans’ favourite to be the next James Bond.
The ‘Outlander’ actor – who previously auditioned to play the suave spy in 2006 but lost out to Daniel Craig – has topped a poll of almost 80,000 fans around the world, with 30% of voters backing him to take over as 007.
Tim Glanfield, Editorial Director of RadioTimes.com, who conducted the survey, said: “Sam is clearly very popular with fans, and this victory solidifies his position as one of the public favourites for this most coveted of film roles.
“With a host of incredible talent in the frame to take over from Daniel Craig, Sam certainly has some stiff competition – but this big vote of confidence will certainly be something for Bond 26 producers to consider.”
‘Legend’ actor Tom Hardy came a distant second on the list with 14% of the vote, while ‘Man From U.N.C.L.E.’ star Henry Cavill was third with 11%.
The survey saw Idris Elba take fourth place with 10% of the vote, with Tom Hiddleston rounding out the top five with five percent.
Radio Times readers had submitted suggestions on Twitter, from which a possible 20 contenders were shortlisted, including two actresses.
While Gillian Anderson beat out Keeley Hawes as the top female choice, both women came ahead of the likes of Nicholas Hoult, John Boyega and the former ‘X Files’ actress’ co-star in ‘The Fall’, Jamie Dornan.
Sam, 40, previously admitted playing Bond would be the “dream role”.
He said: “Obviously it’s a dream for every actor. I auditioned for it back when they were doing Bond 21 when Daniel Craig was cast in ‘Casino Royale’ and I think a lot of actors were seen in the UK.
“Of course it would be a dream role and a Scottish Bond, who doesn’t want to see another Scottish Bond!”
RadioTimes.com’s Top 10 Choices to be the next James Bond:
1. Sam Heughan (30%)
2. Tom Hardy (14%)

OHMYGOSSIP — Tom Hanks is hoping he’ll be allowed to jet out to Australia to resume filming the upcoming Elvis Presley biopic later this year.
The 63-year-old Hollywood star and his wife Rita Wilson, also 63, fell ill with Covid-19 whilst he was shooting the currently untitled film by Baz Luhrmann Down Under in March.
And now he and the ‘Runaway Bride’ star have made a full recovery, he is eager to get back on set.
However, whilst the ‘Castaway’ actor – who is set to play the late King of Rock ‘n’ Roll’s manager Colonel Tom Parker in the motion picture – is scheduled to film in Queensland in October, he insisted it’s all up in the air amid the pandemic.
Hanks is quoted by the Sydney Morning Herald as saying: “There is certainly a plan and a desire from the studio’s perspective and from everybody else involved in the movie to figure out a way to make it happen.
“There are dates on the calendar that say maybe we will be making this movie in October, but all of that stuff is a ‘maybe’ as questions about quarantine and temperatures and sterilising soundstages and all of that go on.”
One of the major issues is that Australian officials have stated that they are keeping their boarders closed until the end of the year.
Director Luhrmann recently reiterated his commitment to making the flick in Queensland but insisted it would be on pause for the time being until the pandemic was under control.
He tweeted: “I’m sure it will come as no surprise that this is not the moment to be resuming production on the film. Please know that this is no way a reflection on our commitment to making the movie here in Queensland. In fact we are not even taking our sets down, simply locking up the creative space over the next few days.
“I have spoken to the [Queensland] premier Annastacia Palaszczuk, and we all agree that right now, this is the time for people all over the world, from all walks of life, to be at home indoors, with their loved ones (washing our hands five times a day).
“All going well we have a passionate conviction to be back here on the Gold Coast, picking up where we left off as soon as the time is right. Baz.”
The film also stars Austin Butler as Elvis, Olivia DeJonge as Priscilla Presley and Maggie Gyllenhaal and Rufus Sewell as the ‘Hound Dog’ singer’s parents Gladys and Vernon Presley.
OHMYGOSSIP — Former ‘Love Island’ star Dr Alex George almost died of sceptic shock when he contracted sepsis in 2017. The 30-year-old medical professional – who has been working on
OHMYGOSSIP — Former ‘Love Island’ star Dr Alex George almost died of sceptic shock when he contracted sepsis in 2017.
The 30-year-old medical professional – who has been working on the NHS frontline on the A&E ward at Lewisham Hospital, south east London, amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic – has opened up about his own terrifying brush with death three years ago.
In a video clip on Instagram, Alex – who found fame on the 2018 series of the reality dating show – shared how he was cycling to work one day and suddenly felt extremely poorly and admitted himself to the hospital, where it was found he had a high temperature.
He recalled: “It was very scary, but I was rushed through into a cubicle where I was seen immediately by one of the senior doctors there.
“I think what really scared me at the time was A, I was alone, B, how quickly it happened and also the fact that it took me a long while to respond.”
Alex’s scary ordeal was one of the reasons he decided to return to work for the NHS.
Meanwhile, the doctor recently admitted he’s finding it difficult to be separated from his girlfriend Amelia Bath amid the pandemic.
Alex explained: “It’s a strange parallel – craving rest yet dreading time off – fuelled by the fact I’m now living, like so many medics, in isolation in the flat I’d normally be sharing with my girlfriend, Amelia. And it’s all such a far cry from my Love Island experience, which is, of course, what made me famous.
“I went on the show in 2018, three years after leaving medical school. That summer seems so carefree and frivolous now, as though it happened to someone else. In fact, I realise now, more than ever before, that fame is not the thing that defines me. The work I’m doing through this crisis, facing life and death on a daily basis, that shapes who I really am: a doctor to my very core.
“I haven’t seen Amelia or any friends or family for four weeks now. Going home from a frantically busy and noisy A&E department to the silence of an empty flat is tough. There’s no one to offload to; no opportunity to touch or be held.”

OHMYGOSSIP — Phillip Schofield has confirmed ‘The Cube’ is returning to TV.
The 58-year-old presenter hosted the game show from 2009 to 2015 and has now confirmed speculation it is making a comeback by sharing an appeal for contestants to apply for the new series.
He wrote on his Instagram Story: “Yes!!! Game on! Can you Beat the Cube?”
The accompanying call out read: “‘The Cube’ is returning to ITV for a brand-new series and this time the challenge is bigger than ever.
“You could be in with the chance of winning a huge cash prize.
“We’re looking for competitive teams of two people from the same household/ household support bubble (partners, parent & child, siblings etc or flatmates/friends) with a mix of abilities and personalities.
“Remember, there are no general knowledge questions to answer. The Cube will set you and your teammate a series of physical and mental challenges for the chance to win a life-changing amount of money!
“Can you work together to take on the ultimate TV gameshow challenge? Can you and your teammate beat The Cube?”
‘The Cube’ originally featured a single contestant each time, who had to complete a series of mental and physical challenges inside a Perspex cube, with a maximum prize offering of £250,000.
And as well as now wanting contestants in pairs, other changes to the format are planned, with Deadline reporting that ITV are “set to significantly increase the potential prize money in the reboot.”
Phillip hasn’t been confirmed to be returning as host, but his Instagram post has suggested it’s likely he’ll be back on the show.
It has been suggested the programme’s return will be similar to that of ‘Who Wants to be a Millionaire?’, with a series of specials running back to back over consecutive evenings.
