Former X Factor panelist Dannii Minogue is returning to British TV screens as a judge on Britain And Ireland's Next Top Model.

TELEVISION : Delilah, I just couldn't take any more

IT MUST have cost a mint. TV companies from all over the world got together and co-produced it. Rai Uno (Italy), Turner Broadcasting (USA), France 2, BSkyB, ARD (Germany), Czech TV and NCRV (Vietnam? Papua New Guinea?) chipped in. And all got a piece of the action of The Bible: Samson and Delilah (Sky, Wednesday & Thursday). The Czechs got the leading man, the Germans provided the cameras, the Yanks wrote the script, the Papuans flew over the extras - and we contributed Elizabeth Hurley.

Oestrogen on the rampage

In the week it was decided that the Loin King would not be appearing on the nation's advertising hoardings, Panorama (BBC1, Mon) reported on the growing phenomenon of violent women. One wife, who spends two weeks out of every four as if demonically possessed by her own menstrual cycle, took it out on the furniture. "We got through three-piece suites like nobody's business," explained her besieged husband, who doubtless used the sofa as a defensive rampart. One woman scorned Bobbited her boyfriend with a Stanley knife: they showed you the photo of the reconstituted member, just in case your mind's eye was unable to call up the relevant image of mutilation. Another avenger drizzled molten candle wax over her husband's middle regions. Again, to jump-start those with stalled imaginations, a reconstruction depicted the phallic candles succumbing to the blade.
