Bruce Willis can still save the day judging by the box office performance of A Good Day to Die Hard. Despite being universally panned by the critics the fifth instalment in the Die Hard franchise topped the UK box office in its debut week taking £4.6 million.
If ever there was a room full of smug ticket holders, this was it. You can hardly blame them: Soho Theatre’s cabaret basement holds 150, and Rob Delaney has amassed 600,000+ followers on Twitter. Needless to say, these shows – the American comedian’s first in the UK – sold out in minutes.

Charlie Hunnam knew what he was letting himself in for. It was all there in the script. Within minutes of appearing on a TV screen in his first major role, playing a 15-year-old schoolboy, he'd be having his naked bum licked by a drug-taking club Lothario.
