  'Scream' Star Jasmin Savoy Brown on Playing the Film Franchise's First Queer Character (Exclusive) The 'Yellowjackets' star talks to ET about making history with her role in the latest sequel.“It’s a huge honor,” Brown tells ET’s Matt Cohen. “But also, feels so right because it’s not that big of a deal to me. It just reflects who I am in my family life. And so many actors get to do that with various pieces of their identity, whether it’s being straight or, fill in the blank. So, I’m being a version of myself onscreen, in Scream.

'Blankety Blank' is returning for a second series.

The BBC One game show - which first debuted in 1979 with the legendary broadcaster Sir Terry Wogan - will be back on our screens for a 10-episode run, including a Christmas special, with Bradley Walsh fronting the programme once again.

Bradley said: “I absolutely love recording this show. We have some of the funniest comedians and some of Britain’s most well-known faces join us on the panel, and they’re incredible, but for me, it’s the players that steal the show. I’m looking forward to getting back into the studio and having a blast filming.”

light and delicious: Tomato soup with naan .
The exam phase is on and in the kitchen it has to go fast. This is this tomato soup with Naan exactly the right thing. © Zeitjung This recipe became the loyal companion of my girlfriends and me last year. We met for cooking during the lunch break of an zoom seminar. So it had to go fast. That was the birth of our tomato soup. In the following weeks - in the examination phase - we cooked them almost every day. The tomato soup is easy and fast to make and is still healthy.
