Former Bake Off stars Mary Berry, Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins are reuniting on screen for a BBC Christmas special.


The trio were last seen together on The Great British Bake Off last year, but refused to join Paul Hollywood when the show moved to Channel 4.


Mary, Mel and Sue's Surprise Party will see them visit a community centre in South Wales to bring festive cheer.


Berry will make a special Christmas dinner for residents while Mel and Sue help give the centre a makeover.


The BBC said the unnamed area of South Wales had "experienced some tough times" but residents had worked together to open a community centre after their post office and local school closed.


They said the centre became a "lifeline" and, with the help of volunteers, had become "the beating heart of the community". This year, instead of those volunteers organising a Christmas party, Mel, Sue and Mary are throwing them a surprise party.


 ... after 33yrs. 

And the reason?

"“We believe the successful Crimewatch Roadshow format in daytime is the best fit for the brand "

Great - how can a day time show cover serious crime?

It won't  - it will cover 'people's rights' and petty car crime 


Such a shame when it became a show that was often pivotal in solving serious crimes.

Irish stand-up star and BBC quiz show panellist Sean Hughes has died aged 51.


Richard Bucknall, his former agent and promoter, said the "formidable" comic died in hospital on Monday and would be remembered for his "superb wit".


Hughes was a team captain on Never Mind the Buzzcocks on BBC Two and had his own Channel 4 sitcom, Sean's Show.


  How sad and only 51.

I liked Sean.

The Met Office has issued Northern Ireland with an amber weather warning as Hurricane Ophelia remains on course to hit Ireland and the UK on Monday.


The warning, of "potential danger to life", came as Ireland called a national emergency meeting.


Ophelia, on its way from the Azores in the Atlantic Ocean, is currently blowing winds of 105mph (113km/h).


The hurricane will be a storm when it hits the UK, exactly 30 years after the Great Storm of 1987 killed 18 people.


It is expected to bring severe winds and stormy conditions to parts of Ireland and the UK - with winds of up to 70mph (113km/h).

~ Bonfire Night! ~

Remember remember, before the days of health & safety gone mad, when we could light a big bonfire and sit right beside it? 

Bramble's is my priority these days but I used to love Guy Fawkes night! I still look out the window at the fireworks though, I love them
