GEORDIE Shore star Bethan Kershaw has shown off her incredible pole dancing tricks in a sexy Instagram video.

TV detective Luther "doesn't feel authentic" because he has no black friends and doesn't eat Caribbean food, a BBC diversity boss has suggested. Idris Elba plays detective Luther in the critically-acclaimed BBC drama of the same name, which has ran for five seasons since 2010. Elba was praised by BBC creative diversity chief Miranda Wayland for playing a "really strong, black character lead" during the MIPTV conference on Wednesday.

Advertisement She said: "When it first came out, everybody loved the fact that Idris Elba was in there. A really strong, black character lead. We all fell in love with Luther. Who didn't, right?

To find a by-election as significant as the one in Hartlepool next month, rewind to July 2008 and the vote to determine who would represent the constituency of Glasgow East. That night saw a Labour bastion slip away in favour of Alex Salmond's nationalists, revealing the first hard evidence of a generational shift underway in Scotland, and triggered a moment of paralyzing shock for Labour and Gordon Brown. This 6 May, the race to be Hartlepool's next MP may prove to be the most consequential by-election of any in the 13 intervening years. It will provide the first electoral evidence of whether the fall of Labour's red wall to the Tories in 2019 was a temporary aberration, driven by Brexit uncertainty and a dislike of Jeremy Corbyn, and shows Keir Starmer doing the job for which he was elected in key parts of the north. Or it might suggest the last general election was the start of a more enduring rewiring of British politics, with Tory popularity cemented and extending in … [Read more...] about Hartlepool by election will be the most significant for Labour since 2008
