Even though Big Brother has finally been kicked out of your house, it has spawned so many incestuous siblings that reality TV may soon be more believable than reality itself. But The Young Ones (BBC1, Tuesday to Thursday) at least had a purpose beyond simple voyeurism. Six former public figures approaching their dotage were brought together in a Seventies house to remind them of the way they were in their prime in 1975, and bring them out of the helplessness which has eroded their own sense of reality. The trouble is that some of them, like Dickie Bird, weren't all there in the first place.

If Gavin Henson can cause this much trouble when the only thing he is likely to wrestle off his opposite number is a handful of sequins, heaven only knows what will happen if and when the celebrity centre returns to professional rugby. The budding ballroom dancer's alleged flirtation with Wasps – publicly denied by the club, albeit in language that suggested there might be something in it – is generating all manner of fury in his native Wales, with the Ospreys' director of coaching Scott Johnson more apoplectic than most.

Gavin Henson could make a return to the Wales squad as early as November. The head coach, Warren Gatland, is understood to be considering inviting the under-active Osprey, who has not played for 18 months and is reportedly trying to get out of his regional contract to join Wasps, to train with the national team during the autumn Tests.

Wales players past and present have criticised the choice of absent star Gavin Henson as poster boy for the new national team kit.

If anyone still gave a tinker's cuss whether Gavin Henson might be seen in a Wales shirt again, they were given their answer yesterday when the poor lost soul of the Red Dragon game reappeared, as if by magic, as the poster-boy of a marketing campaign to promote a new, heavily-sponsored kit deal. The question that stayed unanswered was whether the Grand Slam-winning midfielder would actually play again. On this subject, his thoughts remained almost as impenetrable as his fake tan.

Ospreys, the nearest thing the Magners League has to a rock-star team, meet Glasgow tonight in the first of this year's semi-finals, and the indications are that it will be a close-run thing. Yet the match could go to extra-time, a penalty shoot-out and the toss of a coin and still be less dramatic than the Welsh region's off-field wrangles, which continued apace yesterday with a startling fine of £100,000 and the docking of four points, which will be activated at the start of next season's tournament.

Just months into his new plum post as the BBC's Europe editor, Gavin Hewitt insists he's been the innocent victim of a mischievous whispering campaign.

When Mathew Tait goes through his pre-match routine at the Stadio Flaminio this afternoon – pacing the touchlines and picturing himself doing the right thing in tight spots and open spaces – he will draw inspiration from a basketball legend. Michael Jordan made a commercial around the time the teenaged Tait first got into the England team, and it can still be seen on YouTube. The title? Failure.
