Daniel Radcliffe, la star de Harry Potter, will play the multifaceted, five-time Grammy Award-winning artist Weird Al Yankovic in WEIRD – The Al Yankovic Story, a TV biopic for brand new Roku streamer…

Recently commissioned, the work written by Yankovic and Eric Appel (Funny or Die), WEIRD will explore “every facet of Yankovic’s life, from his meteoric rise to stardom with early hits like ‘Eat It’ and ‘Like a Surgeon’ to his steamy love affairs with celebrities and his notorious depraved lifestyle”. The feature film promises to take audiences on “an incredible journey through the life and career of Yankovic, from child prodigy to the greatest musical legend of all time”.

Appel will also be the director of the film. Production is expected to begin in Los Angeles in early February.

“When my last film, UHF, was released in 1989, I solemnly swore my fans to release a great movie every 33 years, like clockwork. I’m very happy to say we’re on schedule,” Yankovic said in a statement. “And I’m absolutely thrilled to have Daniel Radcliffe cast me in this film. I have no doubt that this is the role that future generations will remember him for.”

Appel added, “When Weird Al sat me down against my will and told me about his life, I didn’t believe a word of it, but I knew we had to make a movie out of it.”

Yankovic is the best-selling comedic artist of all time. According to Roku, he is one of only three artists to have had Top 40 success in each of the past four decades (the other two being Michael Jackson and Madonna). His most recent studio album, Mandatory Fun from 2014, became the first comedy album in history to debut at number one on Billboard’s Top 200 and spawned the hit single “Tacky”, a riff on “Happy” de Pharrell Williams.

During the introduction to the Firework performance, the camera pans around a decorated room.

He then zoomed in on a square-shaped neon sign that simply read “ALBER” – a potential abbreviation for Albert Square.

Many viewers would have thought nothing of the snap, but nothing gets past eagle-eyed ITV viewers.

Quickly jumping to Twitter, a number of viewers guessed that Maisie Smith ? who portrayed Tiffany Butcher ? was the celebrity behind the mask.

A confident fan wrote: ?The fireworks must be from EastEnders with that clue from Albert Square. »

Echoing their comments, someone else added, ?Tiff from EastEnders is fireworks. »

Cameroon is hosting the 33rd African... [content] => Array ( [encoded] =>

The roadblocks began on Saturday, January 22, from the lobby of a five-star hotel in Douala, Cameroon. It was a battle to get a place to attend in the press room the draw of the last ten African teams, which will compete, at the end of March, to win one of the five places reserved for the continent for the World Cup in Qatar. (November 21 to December 18, 2022). The Confederation of African Football (CAF) was expecting around fifty reporters, almost twice as many.

The event, on the sidelines of the African Cup of Nations (CAN), did not disappoint: ?A fire draw! », ignited a Ghanaian journalist. And for good reason: the next five confrontations ? Mali-Tunisia; Democratic Republic of Congo-Morocco; Ghana-Nigeria; Cameroon-Algeria and Egypt-Senegal ? promise “very high level”, enthused the icon of Senegalese football, El-Hadji Diouf, guest of the draws.

“To go to the world, you have to suffer”

Two displays hold the attention. The first concerns the Lions of Teranga who will confront the Pharaohs. Thus, Sadio Mané and Mohamed Salah, the two Liverpool strikers, venerated by their supporters in the club or in the selection, will find themselves face to face in a duel of prestigious center-forwards. Even if Mané and Salah have been far from flamboyant since the start of the CAN (one goal each in three games)…

?For Senegal, I hope history will repeat itself. In 2002, to qualify for the World Cup, we had a good result in Egypt., launches El-Hadji Diouf. With Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy, best FIFA goalkeeper of the year 2021, Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly, or Paris-Saint-Germain midfielder Idrissa Gueye, Senegal (CAN 2019 finalist), may be the favorite. “We have the best team in Africa today, and to go to the World Cup, you have to suffer and we are ready to suffer for that”, wants to believe Mr. Diouf.

Cameroon-Algeria is the other highly anticipated meeting of these play-offs. “It’s our revenge”, repeat some Algerian journalists present. The defending champions Les Fennecs, great favorites of the African Cup, were eliminated in the first round after three nightmarish matches (0-0 against Sierra Leone; 0-1 against Equatorial Guinea; 3-1 for Côte d’Ivoire). So returning to the land of the Indomitable Lions for the Desert Warriors is ?a golden opportunity to come back stronger?, claims Amara Charaf-Eddine, the president of the Algerian Football Federation (FAF).

Catching up for Algeria?

The CAN in Douala, base of the Fennecs, was a sporting event, but not only. Throughout the tournament, a strange, not to say mystical climate reigned around the Algerian team. What if the surprise defeat against Equatorial Guinea (January 16), which ended the formation’s unbeaten streak of thirty-five games in three years, was due to bad luck? To witchcraft? To the ?grigris?? For some supporters, only black magic would be responsible for the dismal game of the Fennecs. So much so that the FAF had to deny in a press release that?At no time did she call on any exorcist (or raki) to come to Cameroon to bring her ?services? to the players of the national team, as part of its participation in the CAN ».

After the slap taken against the Elephants, on January 20, the coach of the Greens, Djamel Belmadi, shot by his ” failure “, underlined at a press conference that he was “difficult to make a rational analysis immediately after such a big disappointment”. Then, a Cameroonian journalist spoke: ?You speak of the irrational, that means that you yourself are struggling to find the explanations for your elimination. So we’re going to go straight: isn’t it the spirit of Albert Ebossé that has haunted the Fennecs throughout this CAN? » Black silence from the Algerian technician. ?I don’t know who authorized you to enter this room sir, but he was guilty of professional misconduct. »

Albert Ebossé was a Cameroonian striker from the Algerian club JS Kabylie, killed in 2014 on the pitch by a projectile launched from the stands. Since then, the case has never been elucidated… The day after Djamel Belmadi’s press conference, the Cameroonian daily The messenger headlined in one: “The Ebossé Curse”. Thus implying that the disappointment of Algeria at the CAN was a « vengeance » of the deceased player.

With or without magic, the Fennecs disappointed. ?It can be traumatic, also warns El-Hadji Diouf. But I am wary of this Algerian team which is injured. She has the chance to play immediately after her elimination a match for the World Cup and to be forgiven. The Algerian people love football and they will not forgive her if she does not qualify. Nothing is won against Cameroon, mentally very strong. »

It was a battle to get a place to attend in the press room the draw of the last ten African teams, which will compete, at the end of March, to win one of the five places reserved for the continent for the World Cup in Qatar. (November 21 to December 18, 2022). The Confederation of African Football (CAF) was expecting around fifty reporters, almost twice as many.

The event, on the sidelines of the African Cup of Nations (CAN), did not disappoint: ?A fire draw! », ignited a Ghanaian journalist. And for good reason: the next five confrontations ? Mali-Tunisia; Democratic Republic of Congo-Morocco; Ghana-Nigeria; Cameroon-Algeria and Egypt-Senegal ? promise “very high level”, enthused the icon of Senegalese football, El-Hadji Diouf, guest of the draws.

“To go to the world, you have to suffer”

Two displays hold the attention. The first concerns the Lions of Teranga who will confront the Pharaohs. Thus, Sadio Mané and Mohamed Salah, the two Liverpool strikers, venerated by their supporters in the club or in the selection, will find themselves face to face in a duel of prestigious center-forwards. Even if Mané and Salah have been far from flamboyant since the start of the CAN (one goal each in three games)…

?For Senegal, I hope history will repeat itself. In 2002, to qualify for the World Cup, we had a good result in Egypt., launches El-Hadji Diouf. With Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy, best FIFA goalkeeper of the year 2021, Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly, or Paris-Saint-Germain midfielder Idrissa Gueye, Senegal (CAN 2019 finalist), may be the favorite. “We have the best team in Africa today, and to go to the World Cup, you have to suffer and we are ready to suffer for that”, wants to believe Mr. Diouf.

Cameroon-Algeria is the other highly anticipated meeting of these play-offs. “It’s our revenge”, repeat some Algerian journalists present. The defending champions Les Fennecs, great favorites of the African Cup, were eliminated in the first round after three nightmarish matches (0-0 against Sierra Leone; 0-1 against Equatorial Guinea; 3-1 for Côte d’Ivoire). So returning to the land of the Indomitable Lions for the Desert Warriors is ?a golden opportunity to come back stronger?, claims Amara Charaf-Eddine, the president of the Algerian Football Federation (FAF).

Catching up for Algeria?

The CAN in Douala, base of the Fennecs, was a sporting event, but not only. Throughout the tournament, a strange, not to say mystical climate reigned around the Algerian team. What if the surprise defeat against Equatorial Guinea (January 16), which ended the formation’s unbeaten streak of thirty-five games in three years, was due to bad luck? To witchcraft? To the ?grigris?? For some supporters, only black magic would be responsible for the dismal game of the Fennecs. So much so that the FAF had to deny in a press release that?At no time did she call on any exorcist (or raki) to come to Cameroon to bring her ?services? to the players of the national team, as part of its participation in the CAN ».

After the slap taken against the Elephants, on January 20, the coach of the Greens, Djamel Belmadi, shot by his ” failure “, underlined at a press conference that he was “difficult to make a rational analysis immediately after such a big disappointment”. Then, a Cameroonian journalist spoke: ?You speak of the irrational, that means that you yourself are struggling to find the explanations for your elimination. So we’re going to go straight: isn’t it the spirit of Albert Ebossé that has haunted the Fennecs throughout this CAN? » Black silence from the Algerian technician. ?I don’t know who authorized you to enter this room sir, but he was guilty of professional misconduct. »

Albert Ebossé was a Cameroonian striker from the Algerian club JS Kabylie, killed in 2014 on the pitch by a projectile launched from the stands. Since then, the case has never been elucidated… The day after Djamel Belmadi’s press conference, the Cameroonian daily The messenger headlined in one: “The Ebossé Curse”. Thus implying that the disappointment of Algeria at the CAN was a « vengeance » of the deceased player.

With or without magic, the Fennecs disappointed. ?It can be traumatic, also warns El-Hadji Diouf. But I am wary of this Algerian team which is injured. She has the chance to play immediately after her elimination a match for the World Cup and to be forgiven. The Algerian people love football and they will not forgive her if she does not qualify. Nothing is won against Cameroon, mentally very strong. »

DANCING On Ice fans are convinced the infamous curse has returned after Rachel Stevens was forced to miss this weekend’s show.

The 43-year-old skater was due to skate alongside Brendyn Hatfield but was forced to pull out after falling on the ice during practice and fracturing her wrist.

Rachel, who has two daughters with husband Alex Bourne, will skate in the competition for the first time in Week 3 on Sunday, January 30.

It comes after Bez was forced to miss next week’s show after testing positive for Covid.

The Happy Monday star is the first celebrity to wear a helmet on the ice after falling during rehearsals.

The ITV competition has returned to our screens but has been plagued by rumors of its own ‘strict curse’.

One wrote: ?I think the curse of Dancing on Ice is back. »

Another posted: ?Rachel Stevens already hurt, maybe the curse is real. #DancingonIce?

?#DancingonIce last year was a mess with contestants dropping out all the time, hope the curse doesn’t affect this year. »

A fourth added: ?So someone has already cast a spell on #DancingonIce. »

Last year, the spooked cast and crew feared the 13th series would be spellbound – following an ‘unprecedented’ flurry of bad luck.

Ex-Corrie star and favorite Faye Brookes, 33, saw partner Hamish Gaman leave last week with an injured finger, with Matt Evers replacing him.

Aussie Jason Donovan, 52, missed last Sunday with back pain.

Rapper Lady Leshurr, 32, is suffering from leg pain and Rebekah Vardy, 39, from a sprained groin.

Actress Denise van Outen, 46, and Billie Shepherd, 31, from Towie, quit after falls.

Covid did it for comedian Rufus Hound, 41, Emmerdale star Joe-Warren Plant, 18, and his partner Vanessa Bauer, 24.

At the time, an insider said: ‘Everyone backstage is mad at all the crashes and dropouts. It is unprecedented.

?It looks like a curse. As if everything that could go wrong has gone wrong.

?Some people wonder if we’ll last until the end of the series. And all because of the number 13! »

Over the years, there have been a number of serious injuries on the show, with a few celebrities having lasting issues.

A Dancing On Ice representative said: ?Due to an injury sustained in training and on the expert advice of Dancing on Ice medical professionals, Rachel Stevens will not be skating in the show this Sunday. We look forward to her returning to the show next weekend.

Prior to participating, the former S Club 7 opened up about her fears for the show, describing herself as a “perfectionist” and “naturally competitive.”

She admitted she was terrified of one thing – the infamous Headbanger.

The risky move sees the skaters swing their partner by the feet, with the head sliding dangerously close to the ice.

Rachel admitted: ?The headbanger fills me with fear.

?I’m okay with the heights, but it’s one of those things, until you actually do it, you don’t know. I have no idea how I’m going to be and how I’m going to feel.

?All I know is I want to go out there and have fun. That’s the thing. I’ve always been quite a perfectionist but with that I really want to go.

?It’s about laughing and having fun learning a new skill along the way. »

There is no winter sports resort like Chamonix. Nestled in the shadow of Mont Blanc, it has a sparkling history and a reputation for challenging even the best skiers.

People come from all over the world to try their luck on these tracks. And now, the British can join them again.

For almost a month, holidaymakers have been banned from crossing the English Channel due to COVID restrictions. They were introduced when the Omicron variant was dominant in the UK, but little seen in France.

The only country that sends more tourists to the French Alps than Britain is France itself

Now that has changed; Omicron is ubiquitous in both countries and, after hesitating for a while, the French have reopened their border to British tourists. Many of those currently crossing are heading towards the Alps.

The only country that sends more tourists to the French Alps than Britain is France itself. In Chamonix, it is estimated that around one in four people on the slopes are British; at other stations, the ratio is even higher.

This means that there are a lot of businesses in these mountains that depend on the British. And when they stopped coming, these companies started to worry.

Shona Tate, founder of the ski school, says her business in Chamonix depends on allowing British tourists to return

Shona Tate was one of the nervous. She helped found a ski school in Chamonix 18 years ago, but says the last two years have been the hardest times they have had to face. She told me that her business depended on allowing British tourists to return.

“If the restrictions hadn’t been lifted, we wouldn’t have been able to survive,” she said. ?You need cash to keep going. At the moment, we don’t even pay ourselves.

?The whole industry took a hit, and it was not pleasant. But as soon as the ad came out that people could come back, well we got some nice messages from customers. They were delighted for us, and they wanted to know if they could come.

?I’m looking forward to Easter ? I think it will be so much easier. Who knows what lies ahead, but we will remain positive for now. »

Not everything has been answered. Visitors must always take a COVID test before arriving, and unvaccinated tourists are not welcome. The question of whether children should have a vaccination passport has still not been resolved ? but it seems very likely that they will not.

Above us, the sky is blue and cloudless. It’s the perfect day to be on the slopes; you couldn’t wish for better publicity.

?It completely saved our season,? he told me. ?We can survive and save our season. Without this week’s change, without British tourists, it would have been difficult to pay the bills this year.

?As it happened, by getting this change in mid-January, we can survive. Later it would have been a touch and go. »

There is a shared feeling here ? that disaster has been averted and the opportunity now exists to move away from the economic impact of the pandemic and its ongoing travel restrictions. That after surviving the storm, it’s time to reap the benefits.

A 21-year-old mother and her 24-year-old partner were indicted and remanded in custody for acts of torture and barbarism on their four and a half year old child, announced the Bourges (Cher) prosecutor’s office on Saturday January 22. The boy’s mother and stepfather admitted to having “locked up the child for sometimes several days by depriving him of water and food, then having tied him by the neck to his bed using a chain and a padlock”, said the public prosecutor Joël Garrigue in a press release.

The boy was also submissive “to repeated acts of violence and physical punishment since September 2021”, according to the same source. The child was the victim of bullying, blows and slaps before being locked in his room, without water and without food or the possibility of going to the toilet. He was also schooled in dotted line.

The child was hospitalized on Monday January 17, after feeling unwell at the primary school in which he is educated. The medical examiner at the hospital then discovered “traumatic injuries”, from “bruises on limbs and back”, as well as a “scalp sore”. In “a state of very great thinness”, he was entrusted to the services of the Childhood Social Assistance, just like his one-year-old sister, “who seems not to have been subjected to violence”. The investigation was entrusted to the gendarmerie of Saint-Armand-Montrond, 40 kilometers south of Bourges, said the prosecution, which opened a judicial investigation for “deprivation of care or food”, “violence on a minor ” and “torture or act of barbarism on a minor”. The mother and her companion face a 30-year prison sentence.
