With much speculation about what is happening with the fourth season of Selling Sunset, one of the agents has just confirmed their future is no longer with The Oppenheim Group.Davina Potratz has announced she is leaving the property firm featured on the hit Netflix reality show to join a rival brokerage. She revealed she’ll be moving to Douglas Elliman in Beverly Hills after they made her an offer she couldn’t refuse. She told People magazine: “I’m really excited to be a part of Douglas Elliman and their very sophisticated and global new development division. “My background is in new development sales and marketing, so this is just a wonderful opportunity for me. It’s just very in tune with my skills.“It’s not that I wanted to leave, but I had a great opportunity. It was a purely business decision.”Selling Sunset fans will also be keen to know that it looks like Davina did not manage to sell that infamous $75 million house prior to her exit from The Oppenheim Group, as the property is still listed on the company’s website with the same asking price. Davina’s struggle to sell the nine bed, 12 bathroom Beverly Hills home was a central storyline in the show’s third season, where she was seen clashing with boss Jason Oppenheim over the listing. But while she won’t be selling homes at the Oppenheim Group any more, Davina said she is still hoping to feature in the next season of Selling Sunset. “I certainly hope that I’m still part of the cast,” Davina said. “Brett is not at the Oppenheim Group anymore either, so I don’t think that that’s going to be an issue at all.”There has been much speculation as to whether Brett has left the brokerage he ran with his brother to launch his own. While Davina and co-stars Christine Quinn and Chrishell Stause have now all suggested this is the case in various interviews, Jason has previously denied it.  He also recently defended Selling Sunset from accusations it is “fake” after a Mail On Sunday report claimed the women at the Oppenheim Group are not actually estate agents at all, but paid actors, as well as suggesting that a lot of what we see on screen is actually scripted.Supporting the cast, he said: “All of the women who work out of the Oppenheim Group are licensed and successful real estate agents.”This was backed up by Chrishell, who confirmed she was working as a realtor three years prior to the first season of Selling Sunset with a picture on her Instagram Story. Selling Sunset series 1-3 are available to stream on Netflix now. READ MORE: The Selling Sunset Drama Never Stops, Even When Filming Does – Here's What's Happened Since Series 3 Wrapped Who Was A Playboy Playmate And 15 Other Things You Didn't Know About The Stars Of Selling Sunset Selling Sunset's Jason Appearing On Gemma Collins' Diva Forever Is The Reality TV Crossover We Had No Idea Existed

Carole Baskin has shared her thoughts on the family of her late husband’s recent appeal advert, which aired during her debut appearance on Dancing With The Stars.The Tiger King star married Don Lewis in 1991, and he went missing six years later.He was eventually declared legally dead in 2002, with Carole repeatedly denying claims that she was involved in his disappearance and death.Carole is currently appearing on the US version of Strictly Come Dancing, and during an ad break in the first episode on Monday night, Don’s family put together an advert appealing for anyone with information on his death to come forward.  Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, the big cat enthusiast stated that she had not seen the advert, branding it a “huge publicity stunt”.“I am not at all surprised,” she explained. “It’s just been a huge publicity stunt on their part so what more could they possibly do than that?”Turning her attention to her detractors online, Carole added: “Spending time worrying about what I’m doing is probably not a really good use of your time. I’m not worried about what people say because even when they’re saying things that [are] negative, it’s keeping the conversation out there [about big cats] in the public eye.“As long as I can keep that conversation out there, I can keep the cats in the spotlight and that’s my goal.”In Don’s family’s advert, his three grown-up daughters were seen appealing for information, after which a family lawyer said: “Don Lewis mysteriously disappeared in 1997. His family deserves answers; they deserve justice. Do you know who did this or if Carole Baskin was involved?”A reward of $100,000 (£77,800) has also been offered. She previously told Metro: “Someone (a reporter I won’t name) made sure that I knew about it 10 minutes before going out on the dance floor tonight and you can see that it did not keep me from bringing the best performance of my two weeks of learning.”Carole is one of 15 famous faces competing on the current season of Dancing With The Stars, with rapper Nelly, Desperate Housewives star Jesse Metcalfe, Selling Sunset’s Chrishell Stause and Cheer coach Monica Aldama also among the contestants.For her first routine of the new run, Carole and partner Pasha Pashkov performed a Paso Doble to Eye Of The Tiger (obviously), but came in at the bottom of the leaderboard with just 11 points.READ MORE: Family Of Carole Baskin's Husband Air Appeal Ad During Her Debut Dancing With The Stars Episode Tiger King's Carole Baskin And Selling Sunset's Chrishell Sign Up For US Version Of Strictly

The family of Carole Baskin’s missing ex-husband aired an appeal advert during her debut appearance on Dancing With The Stars on Monday night.Carole – who shot to fame earlier this year when she appeared in the hit series Tiger King – married Don Lewis in 1991, and he went missing six years later.Don was later declared legally dead in 2002, with the big cat enthusiast repeatedly denying claims that she was involved in his disappearance or death, including on camera in the Netflix documentary.On Monday night, Carole made her first appearance on Dancing With The Stars, and during one ad break, Don’s family made an appeal for anyone with information about his disappearance to come forward.  After emotional messages from his daughters, Gale, Lynda and Donna, a family lawyer then said: “Don Lewis mysteriously disappeared in 1997. His family deserves answers; they deserve justice. Do you know who did this or if Carole Baskin was involved?”A reward of $100,000 (£77,800) has also been offered.In a statement issued to Metro, Carole later said: “Someone (a reporter I won’t name) made sure that I knew about it 10 minutes before going out on the dance floor tonight and you can see that it did not keep me from bringing the best performance of my two weeks of learning.”Carole is one of 15 famous faces competing on the current season of Dancing With The Stars, with rapper Nelly, Desperate Housewives star Jesse Metcalfe, Selling Sunset’s Chrishell Stause and Cheer coach Monica Aldama also among the contestants.For her first routine of the new run, Carole and partner Pasha Pashkov performed a Paso Doble to Eye Of The Tiger (obviously), but came in at the bottom of the leaderboard with just 11 points.The UK version of the show – Strictly Come Dancing – is set to debut on BBC One in October, with the 12 celebrities taking part having now been revealed.Watch Carole Baskin’s debut performance on Dancing With The Stars below:READ MORE: Cardi B Responds To Carole Baskin's WAP Remarks: 'That's Just Ridiculous' Carole Baskin Tricked Into Recording 'Shout-Out' To Rolf Harris In Video Message Ariana Grande Insists She 'Did Not Allow' Carole Baskin Clip To Appear In New Music Video

After spending most of the first half of 2020 cooped up indoors, the prospect of autumn – meaning trips to the park are looking less inviting, as is enjoying some sun in a family member’s garden – might not be the most welcome to a lot of people.What could help cushion the blow even just a little, though, is the fact there’s some great new TV to get into over the coming weeks and months, catering to a whole range of different tastes.Here’s a round-up of our top TV picks for the rest of 2020 that might just take the edge off stopping in...I Hate SuzieAvailable now to watch on Now TV, with new episodes on Sky Atlantic every ThursdayWhat is it?Billie Piper takes the lead in this new black comedy, which centres around the titular Suzie, a minor celeb who suddenly finds herself back in the headlines when personal photos of her are leaked online.Described as “excruciatingly honest”, the series pulls precisely zero punches, with each episode presented in a completely different I May Destroy You-esque fashion from the one before it.I Hate Suzie also reunites its star with Lucy Prebble, who previously penned Secret Diary Of A Call Girl, and with its frank approach to taboo themes, it will appeal to a lot of the same audiences.Watch it if you liked: I May Destroy You, Secret Diary Of A Call Girl, FleabagI’m Thinking Of Ending ThingsAvailable to stream on Netflix nowWhat is it? A new psychological horror film starring Jessie Buckley and Toni Collette, the film centres around a young woman who, unenthused about her new relationship, agrees to accompany him to meet his parents, who just happen to live in the middle of nowhere.From there, things all start to unravel.Directed by Charlie Kauffman, whose past writing credits include Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind and Being John Malcovich, it doesn’t take a detective to work out that it doesn’t take long before things take an unsettling turn.It’s definitely a bizarre watch, but also a thoroughly depressing one, so maybe have an episode of Friends or Love Island to treat yourself to afterwards, especially if you’re watching before bed.Watch it if you liked: Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind, Midsommar, Russian DollBritain’s Got TalentAiring every Saturday night on ITV What is it? For obvious reasons, things are running a little differently than usual during this year’s Britain’s Got Talent semi-finals.With the show having been on pause since the spring, this year’s semi-finals are now underway, with weekly pre-recorded shows airing on a Saturday night. Former champion Ashley Banjo is also a new addition to the panel, filling in for Simon Cowell, who recently injured himself in an electric bike accident.At this stage, you already know whether or not BGT is your cup of tea, but for those who’ve turned their nose up at the talent format in the past, surely right now is the perfect moment to give it another go?Watch it if you liked: The X Factor, The Greatest Dancer, Strictly Come DancingI’ll Be Gone In The DarkAvailable to watch on Now TV now, with new episodes on Sky Crime every Sunday nightWhat is it? A definite must-watch for any fans of true crime, I’ll Be Gone In The Dark is a new documentary based on the critically-acclaimed book of the same name by Michelle McNamara.The series tells the story not just of the Golden State Killer – who committed at least 50 rapes and murdered at least 13 people in the 1970s and 80s – but also Michelle’s quest to find the killer’s true identity decades later, which sadly ended in tragedy.Fans of the book should definitely tune in, though, as the series includes plenty of details not included in Michelle’s book, including events that have transpired since it was published.Watch if you liked: Making A Murderer, The Jinx, Unsolved MysteriesMulanAvailable to purchase for Disney+ subscribersWhat is it? The latest in a long line of Disney’s live-action remakes, this is the much-awaited re-imagining of the animated classic Mulan, given a more grown-up twist by director Niki Caro, who has stripped the film of its original songs and the main character’s dragon sidekick, Mushu.Instead, the new Mulan is a film more focussed on “realism”, intended as an epic the whole family can enjoy.However, the film did take some heat earlier this year following comments made by its leading actor Yifei Liu, while the decision for Disney to charge existing subscribers to watch a film on a service they were already paying for was met with a mixed response.Watch if you liked: Aladdin, A Wrinkle In Time, Pirates Of The CaribbeanEastEndersNow airing on BBC One and the BBC iPlayerWhat is it? What do you mean “what is it?”. It’s literally EastEnders.The long-running BBC soap came off air for the first time in its 35-year history back in June, but with production now up and running again (albeit with huge changes, due to social distancing guidelines), the show is finally back on our screens.Rather than picking up exactly where we left off, though, Walford is a rather different to when we last paid it a visit, with three months having passed for both us and the residents of Albert Square. How has time changed things for the characters we know and love?

ITV is continuing its long line of true crime miniseries based on infamous British murder cases, following in the footsteps of recent offerings like Appropriate Adult, Dark Angel and The Pembrokeshire Murders.This new three-parter sees David Tennant in the lead role of Dennis Nilsen, who murdered at least 12 young men and boys in North London in the late 1970s and early 80s.Des will almost certainly not be one for the faint of heart, given the truly horrific nature of Nilsen’s crimes, but for true crime devotees, this will be a must-watch.Watch it if you liked: Broadchurch, Appropriate Adult, The Pembrokeshire MurdersCriminalDebuts on Netflix on 16 SeptemberWhat is it? Alternatively, for those who like a crime drama that’s a little more detached from reality, Netflix has you covered with brand new episodes of Criminal, the police-based miniseries that debuted last year.Katherine Kelly is once again leading the cast, with Netflix pulling it out of the bag in terms of guest stars, including Kit Harington in his first post-Game Of Thrones role, Catastrophe star Sharon Horgan, Kunal Nayyar of The Big Bang Theory fame and Sophie Okonedo, soon to be seen in Ratched and Death On The Nile.For anyone who loves the interview room sequences in Line Of Duty but finds the rest of the show a bit heavy, this short-and-sweet series is well worth a stream.Watch it if you liked: The Stranger, Line Of Duty, Silent WitnessRatchedDebuts on Netflix on 18 SeptemberWhat is it?Ryan Murphy has been well and truly on a roll with his Netflix output in 2020, debuting Hollywood (one of our favourite shows of the year) as well as a second series of The Politician, not to mention documentaries he produced like Circus Of Books and A Secret Love.However, with American Horror Story on ice for the time being, Ratched is the series that Ryan Murphy fans who prefer when he takes a walk on the dark side have been most looking forward to.Putting his frequent collaborator Sarah Paulson in the leading role, the show serves as an origin story for Nurse Ratched of the classic book One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest.And as if Sarah in a leading role wasn’t enticing enough, the supporting cast boasts Cynthia Nixon, Rosanna Arquette and Sharon Stone, as well as past players from the Murphy-verse like Charlie Carver, Jon Jon Briones and Finn Wittrock.

And by the time Shea Couleé took her place in the Hall Of Fame, the first series of Canada’s Drag Race got underway.Now that’s over, did you think that we were done with Drag Race for another? Well, think again.WOW Presents Plus subscribers will soon have access to the first ever run of Drag Race Holland – so get ready for some niche Dutch pop culture references that will go straight over your head, an obligatory Vengaboys lip sync and a whole lot more phoned-in messages from RuPaul, because even though we done already done had ourses, there’s still more to come.Watch if you liked: RuPaul’s Drag Race (in its various incarnations), Drag SOS, Glow UpUsDebuts on BBC One on 20 SeptemberWhat is it? Based on the much-loved novel by David Nicholls (of Starter For 10 and One Day fame), Us tells the story of a middle-aged couple, whose marriage hits a bump in the road when their 18-year-old son leaves for university.When mum Connie tells Douglas, her husband of almost 25 years, that she’s fed up and wants to leave him, he convinces her to let him take her and their son on one last family holiday, which just happens to be a “grand tour” of Europe.Expect lots of awkwardness, set against some beautiful backdrops.Watch if you liked: Normal People, One Day, Life BeginsGreat British Bake OffReturns on 22 September on Channel 4 What is it? Due to the coronavirus pandemic, many feared the Great British Bake Off would not be able to go ahead in 2020, at a time when what the nation really needs is some bakery-based escapism, a few softly-spoken innuendos and a nice bit of colour blocking from Prue Leith.Fortunately, those sneaky Channel 4 bosses managed to film a whole series in secret without telling anyone, the results of which are about to be revealed.Quite how it’ll go ahead with new host Matt Lucas and a whole lot of coronavirus restrictions (we’re guessing Hollywood handshakes are out the window) remains to be seen, but we’ll definitely be tuning in to find out.Watch if you liked: The Great Pottery Throwdown, The Great British Sewing Bee, Strictly Come DancingEnola HolmesDebuts on Netflix on 23 September What is it?

Another TV show hit hard by the pandemic, the frustratingly-titled Little Mix The Search was supposed to be done and dusted by now, and instead we haven’t seen a single episode. Fortunately, the auditions will be coming to us before long, and Little Mix fans will finally get their fix of one of the biggest acts in the UK today.The Search has a fairly simple premise, that sees Little Mix putting together new bands, mentoring them and offering the winning band a supporting spot on their next tour (whenever that may end up being).Probably not the most challenging of watches, admittedly but who doesn’t love watching Little Mix having some fun together?Watch if you liked: The Voice, The X Factor, Britain’s Got TalentThe Boys In The BandStreaming on Netflix from 30 SeptemberWhat is it? Yet another offering from super-producer Ryan Murphy, this is a new feature-length film directed by Joe Mantello.The Boys In The Band is based on the play of the same name, and features the very impressive cast of a 2018 Broadway revival, including Jim Parsons, Matt Bomer, Zachary Quinto, Andrew Rannells and Michael Benjamin Washington.Set in the late 1960s, when the original play first debuted, The Boys In The Band features around a group of gay men, who gather together to celebrate one of their birthdays, with tempers quickly flaring as they revisit their past.Watch if you liked: American Crime Story: The People vs. OJ Simpson, Looking, HollywoodHonourDebuts on ITV later in the autumn What is it? Keeley Hawes takes the lead in this new ITV drama, which she’s also produced, in which she plays real-life detective chief inspector Caroline Goode, who fought for justice in the Banaz Mahmod “honour killing” case.Honour has already faced controversy, with many – including Banaz’s own family – criticising the decision to centre the story on Keeley’s character, claiming it perpetuates a white saviour narrative.Keeley later said of the show: “With something like this – and especially with this – we were all so mindful that we were dealing with real people. Banaz, Caroline, their families, everybody involved, the team, so there is that element of course, and with this, even more so. Much more so, probably, than anything I’ve ever worked on.“But the responsibility is huge. It’s huge. I felt it every day. I’ve felt it every day since. I really have.”Watch if you liked: Bodyguard, Line Of Duty, Mrs WilsonThe Haunting Of Bly ManorStreaming on Netflix from 9 OctoberWhat is it? *shudders* It’s taken us since 2018 to get over the trauma of watching The Haunting Of Hill House, and now there’s a brand new horror series to give us nightmares.Although The Haunting Of Bly Manor is from the same team as Hill House and features many of the same cast, Netflix is taking a leaf out of American Horror Story’s book with this one, setting the new story in a completely different universe, and with returning stars playing brand new characters.Instead, The Haunting Of Bly Manor is based on the Victorian novella The Turn Of The Screw, telling the story of a young governess who experiences some supernatural goings on when she arrives at a new country manor.Frankly, it sounds absolutely chilling, but we’re probably going to have binged the whole thing by Halloween, let’s be honest.Watch if you liked: The Haunting Of Hill House, American Horror Story: Roanoke, Paranormal ActivitySmall AxeDebuts on BBC One later this yearWhat is it? Steve McQueen’s first TV project has been six years in the making (it was first announced in January 2014!), but by all accounts, it’s going to be well worth the wait.Small Axe is an anthology series made up of five short films, telling the story of a West Indian community in London spread across three decades.And the Oscar-winning director has truly assembled an absolutely epic group of actors to bring it all to life. Among the show’s stellar cast are Black Panther’s Letitia Wright, Star Wars’ John Boyega and Malachi Kirby, who previously appeared in Roots and the Black Mirror episode Men Against Fire.Watch if you liked: Sitting In Limbo, Widows, Top BoyThe UndoingDebuts on 26 October on Sky Atlantic What is it?

Scrolling through endless made-for-TV movies and series that should have never have got the green light in search for something decent to get stuck into on Netflix can feel like a never-ending and often fruitless task.But in amongst all of that stuff, there are bona fide hidden gems to be discovered.Just because these shows didn’t make it onto the Most Watched lists doesn’t mean they’re not worth your time of day. On the contrary, recommend these to your mates and they’ll think you’re a Netflix connoisseur. You’re welcome.Rita A subtitled Danish dramedy isn’t the easiest of sells, but bear with me, because you’re about to discover your favourite new show (honest). The titular character (played by the charismatic Mille Dienssen) is a teacher and mum to three grown-up children who plays very much by her own rules – with varying degrees of success. The kids love her at school. Not all of her colleagues respect her (it doesn’t help that she’s rubbing belly buttons with the headmaster), and it’s her personal life where things get really sticky (no pun intended). Over the course of five series we follow Rita as she goes from one disaster to another trying to avoid confronting her “stuff”. It’s all incredibly relatable, extremely funny (who knew Danish and British was so alike?), boundary-pushing and often, very touching. Not only will you be rooting for Rita all the way, you’ll also want to be her mate.Speaking of which, her best friend Hjørdis is an absolute delight – and proved so popular that she got her very own spin-off series. I got through all five series in a week and honestly feel bereft that Rita and co are no longer part of my daily life. Joyous stuff. (Matt Bagwell, Head Of Entertainment)The Midnight Gospel  The best way to describe The Midnight Gospel would be hallucinogens mixed with Rugrats or Rocko’s Modern Life. The visuals and worlds in which main character Clancy Gilroy visits through his “unlicensed multiverse simulator” are really what I would imagine an acid trip to be like.I originally watched it on a whim thinking it would be some cartoon escapism after a long day, and instead I was surprised about the show’s ponderings on life, existence, love, spirituality and more. It’s kind of what I would imagine Rick & Morty might be if they suddenly became introspective and holistic (don’t come at me R&M fans, I just don’t like it). It was only recently that I looked into the writing and production credits and found that the discussions are recordings from co-creator Duncan Trussell’s podcast. Actual interviews from facing death with Anne Lamott, meditation and enlightenment learnt in prison from Damien Echols (one of the ‘West Memphis Three’) and legalisation of drugs with Drew Pinsky – deep intellectual chats wrapped up in an incredible world of cartoon fantasy. (Jayson Mansaray, Video Producer)Special Not only does Special break new ground in terms of representation of disabled people (its lead actor, Ryan O’Connell, also created the show and wrote the whole first series), its attitude to other themes like sex work and body positivity also feel totally fresh. What definitely helps is that it’s also laugh-out-loud funny and beautifully shot – and with each episode clocking in at around 15 minutes, you can fly through the whole thing in an afternoon. (Daniel Welsh, Entertainment Reporter)Dark  Dark is a German sci-fi thriller that finished a three season run this summer. I binged the first season (admittedly, in one night) back in 2017 and loved it but totally forgot about it until the last two seasons popped up on Netflix (a TV binger’s dream!).You think you are going to be watching a crime show but then get thrown right into time travel, alternate universes and the most complicated family tree imaginable.If you can overlook English translation voiceovers and a few questionable special effects, I’d highly recommend this show. It was super engaging and suspenseful with no shortage of plot twists. (Samara Mackereth, Head Of Video)Been So Long Been So Long is exactly what I didn’t know I needed one lazy Sunday afternoon and definitely a hidden gem, perhaps because of its low ratings on the streaming site. But don’t let that, or the fact it’s a “modern musical” put you off. It’s gritty, funny, refreshing and stars the brilliant Michaela Coel (filmed in between Chewing Gum and I May Destroy You) and the talented Arinzé Kene, who you may recognise from Youngers.I do love musicals, so I am biased, but the soundtrack was fresh and uplifting, the story passionate and gripping and the acting fantastic. I mean Michael Coel is in it, come on.Just like people “discovered” Crashing and the first series of Fleabag after the success of its second season, I think it should be time for people to “discover” this film, after the boom of I May Destroy You. (Becky Barnes, Audience Editor)The Apartment  If, like me, you still mourn the loss of Changing Rooms (I still think about that poor woman’s collection of teapots getting smashed at the hands of Linda Barker’s malfunctioning shelving unit regularly), then may I introduce The Apartment?It’s a reality competition series that usually sees amateur designers makeover various rooms in an apartment, which are then judged by a panel that includes Changing Rooms alum Lawrence Llwellyn Bowen.There’s only one series currently available on Netflix, which is a celebrity edition that originally aired back in 2015, but the fact they are not experienced designers – thus creating some truly monstrous rooms – only adds to its addictiveness. Insatiable  Insatiable is a about a teenager called Patty Bladell (Debby Ryan) who has always been bullied for her size, but after shedding the pounds one summer and becoming a pageant queen, she goes back to school seeking revenge on the people who bullied her. The show is such a great watch because it takes the best bits of a comedy, thriller, drama, murder mystery and romance, and packs them all into one show. It really does take you on an emotional rollercoaster because the lead character, Patty, is so unpredictable with her actions. From first look, it seems like a one of those generic high school dramas but when you actually watch it, it definitely doesn’t end up where you expect it to.

One of the biggest storylines of the last two series of Selling Sunset has been Davina Potratz’s struggle to sell her $75 million (£57m) listing. Now over eight months on from filming wrapping on the third series, Davina has revealed she’s still not had any luck shifting the ridiculously expensive pad, which belongs to her client Adnan Sen. The estate agent thought she had reason to celebrate when she secured the highest-ever listing for the Oppenheim Group during the second series of the hit Netflix reality show, but faced opposition from boss Jason who believed it was overpriced. While Jason later insisted he was removing the listing after it failed to sell in its first three months on the market, Davina has confirmed to Metro she’s still working on selling the seven-bed, 10-bathroom property, which is located in Beverly Hills. “Adnan is still a client,” she said. “He’s a great client and he’s very well aware that the listing is overpriced, but I think he is open to negotiating and potentially working together more.“Adnan showed me another one of his listings for $39m (£27m).” View this post on InstagramA post shared by The Oppenheim Group (@theoppenheimgroup) on Oct 4, 2019 at 2:50pm PDTJason also told Metro that while he had been tough on Davina over the listing, scenes that saw him praise her for securing the property for the brokerage had not made the edit. He said: “I think what the series focused on was my frustrations over the price, but what I would have liked it to show was my compliments that Davina deserves for bringing in the biggest listing we’ve ever had. “That is not easy. Overpriced or not overpriced, it’s not easy to convince who has that kind of wealth or those types of properties to choose you to be their real estate agent. That takes a lot of confidence and experience.”He added: “I was a little tough on Davina… but I think she did a good job and more importantly, she maintained the relationship. He’s got other potential listings for this brokerage.”All three seasons of Selling Sunset are streaming on Netflix. READ MORE: Who Was A Playboy Playmate And 15 Other Things You Didn't Know About The Stars Of Selling Sunset Selling Sunset's Jason Reveals Why Show Isn't What He Envisaged: 'I Probably Wouldn't Have Signed Up' Christine Quinn Reveals She's Had Death Threats, But Still Loves Being Selling Sunset's 'Villain'

If there is one thing that Gemma Arterton’s Alice Lamb can’t abide in the new period comedy Summerland, it’s children. They are the bane of her reclusive existence in a small seaside town in Kent, during WW2, branding her a “witch” and causing a daily nuisance with pranks on and around her property while she is trying to write her thesis. So when a kid called Frank (Lucas Bond) lands on her doorstep, one of the many London young escaping the capital during the Blitz, it’s no wonder she baulks at the idea of housing one. But as Alice reluctantly bonds with the young lad, while flashbacking to her university love affair with the family-wanting Vera (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), the film suggests that any woman could warm to the concept of child-rearing if they are simply served up the right child to rear. Related... Woman Told To Cover Up In A Supermarket Asks: What About Topless Men? 9 Women Named Karen Talk About, Well, Being An Actual Karen Summerland isn’t the first movie to thrust motherhood on independent women who have no interest in children; Baby Boom (1987) and We Need To Talk About Kevin (2011), to a more nuanced and critical extent, are two such examples. However, Jessica Swales’ film still perpetuates the notion that being child-free isn’t a valid choice at a time when more and more women are choosing to be. In 2019, according to the Office for National Statistics, 48% of women in England and Wales had not had children by the time they hit 30, compared to 80% of the previous generation who had at least one child by that milestone. Fertility issues are one of the reasons why an increasing number of women are choosing to go child-free but other factors include economic concerns, climate change worries, career goals and simply feeling that being a mother isn’t actually what they want. Of course, society has long been resistant to the idea of women denying their biological mandate, especially when those women have celebrity status. One winces at the years of pejorative news coverage aimed at the likes of Jennifer Aniston, Renee Zellwegger and Kylie Minogue for deigning to enter middle-age without putting their ovaries to use. Just entering Aniston’s name in a Google search bar prompts a suggestion about “kids” with 56,600,000 related search results. The barrage of media attention of her pregnancy status even forced the former Friends star to pen a response. “The sheer amount of resources being spent right now by press trying to simply uncover whether or not I am pregnant (for the bajillionth time... but who’s counting) points to the perpetuation of this notion that women are somehow incomplete, unsuccessful, or unhappy if they’re not married with children,” she wrote for HuffPost in 2017. “We don’t need to be married or mothers to be complete. We get to determine our own ‘happily ever after’ for ourselves.” Related...

In Alien (1979), Ellen Ripley is the sole survivor, and one of two women in the seven person crew, who defeats the Xenomorph menace.The character was originally written as male so it’s no wonder she exists in that first film without any gendered baggage, but as the franchise continued, and new male filmmakers took control of her narrative, she was soon made a surrogate mother in Aliens (1986), impregnated in Aliens 3 (1992) and made a fully-fledged mother herself in Alien Ressurection (1997). It's time movies reflected the positive reality of life purposefully lived without children.More recently, Bridget Jones’ Baby (2016) thrust the titular heroine into motherhood as an excuse to extend the franchise, despite her barely showing signs of interest in the previous two films. More often than not, there is an extenuating circumstance as to why a woman is child-free and usually its because their life isn’t regular – Captain Marvel, Black Widow and Tomb Raider aren’t really depictions of the everyday woman. Film critic Catherine Bray recently mused on the topic and suggested that the majority of child-free female characters fit into one of four categories: the young/ingenue (Frances Ha, 2012), the de facto parent (Charlotte in Now, Voyager, 1942), the dysfunctional or damaged (Jane in Eternal Beauty, 2019) or they are simply not the lead (Jocelyn in The Jane Austen Book Club, 2007). This latter category is what I call the “mother buffer” approach, whereby a child-free woman’s independent position is softened by the reminding presence of a parent or two. Summerland certainly fits into the de facto parent category, as does the recent film Saint Frances, which sees the lead, Bridget, wrestle with her decision to have an abortion and live a child-free life while working as a nanny. That’s not to say cinema hasn’t produced good representations of women not wanting to be mothers. Jackie Brown (1997), Eat Pray Love (2010) Obvious Child (2014) and Like a Boss (2020) are a few instances of films that have helped to normalise a child-free existence, but they are frustratingly rare. So as the stigma reduces around a non-maternal way of life, it would be wonderful if movies were less reluctant to reflect the positive reality of life purposefully lived without children. Hanna Flint is a freelance journalist.Related...

Selling Sunset star Christine Quinn has insisted she has no issues with being perceived as the show’s “villain”, despite having received death threats from disgruntled viewers in the past.Christine has been a part of the Selling Sunset cast since its debut, having worked with the Oppenheim Group even before cameras started rolling on the Netflix reality show, and has been at the centre of plenty of drama across the last three series.But even if her antics have led some fans to think of her as Selling Sunset’s “villain”, Christine has said this is not a label she has an issue with.“I guess I am the quote-unquote ‘show villain’,” she told People magazine. “But I love it. I think it’s funny and I think people enjoy it at the end of the day, people that love me really love me. When I’m on camera, I have fun with it.”She continued: “I understand that I’m being showcased in 100-plus countries across the world, and I have a background in comedy. I love to make people laugh, and my whole goal in life has just been to entertain people and make them feel something.“Whether it’s perceived well, I don’t know, but I’m really just being myself. I do have a heart of gold underneath that, and I think sometimes with television, it’s really hard to see all the elements of a human being on a television show.”However, in the same interview, she did admit that seeing herself on screen for the first time did initially make her alter her behaviour on set.Christine recalled: “We definitely were a little more reserved going into season two. I was scared. I was a little scared.“The first few episodes of season two, the editors were like, ‘Where’s the other Christine? Where’s Christine?’, I’m like, ‘Well, that Christine gets death threats’.”“People are so invested in the show, and they see what they see and just think I’m this crazy person,” she added, when pressed on the death threats she’d received. “It’s just unfortunate. People are weird.”Christine is at the centre of one of series three’s biggest storylines, which saw her finally marrying Christian Richard, although she recently admitted she was less than impressed with her how big day was portrayed on screen.“I was a little disappointed. It just didn’t really showcase the way that it was,” she claimed.“The wedding was the best day of my life and it was hard for me to watch it on the television show because that’s not really the way that I remember it.”Christine continued: “I understand they wanted to get certain storylines in there, but this was actually my day. This was my day, and I was just disappointed in the way it was perceived on camera and translated, unfortunately.“I’m not going to lie, I was crying when I watched it. I was like ‘This is not my wedding, this is not my wedding’.”MORE SELLING SUNSET: Selling Sunset Isn't Just Serious Property Porn – Its Drama Makes The Real Housewives Look Tame Who Was A Playboy Playmate And 15 Other Things You Didn't Know About The Stars Of Selling Sunset Christine Quinn 'Disappointed' With How Wedding Is Portrayed On Selling Sunset: 'I Cried When I Watched It'
