The Fried Chicken Shop should really have been the worst kind of junk-food TV. Consider the concept on paper: a fly-on-the-wall camera crew pitch up for three weeks at a south London fried chicken takeaway to film the finger-lickin' goings-on of its (more often than not) loud, drunken patrons.

Sourpuss MPs concerned by a possible flood of Romanian and Bulgarian immigrants in 2014 are considering a negative ad campaign to put citizens in the East European countries off a move to Britain. They hope to divert would-be migrants to other European countries, or convince them to stay at home, and don't mind airing the UK's dirty laundry in the process. Travel? Terrible. Sun? No sir. Jobs?
