Gareth Malone: Note perfect

He’s the nation’s favourite singing teacher. Women love him. Gay men adore him. And his efforts to turn reluctant state-school pupils into convincing choristers have made him the BBC’s latest – and most unexpected – star. But where exactly did Gareth Malone spring from? And what on earth will he make of our intrepid interviewer's, er... 'voice'?

Leicester 34 Leeds 21: Ellis enjoys comeback as Leicester point Leeds towards door

Urban gardener: My brilliant TV career

So I'm lying there, right, and my regular osteopath says to me "Got any telly lined up this year then?" – actually let me stop there.

Leeds 24 London Irish 26: Irish seal first away win despite Leeds resolve

Rumour has it Leeds have lost their captain Stuart Hooper who has apparently signed for Bath. Unsurprising with Steve Borthwick having agreed his future with Saracens, it makes sense even though the Leeds coach Stuart Lancaster denied the signing of Hooper.

Wales 29 Australia 29: Hook's command performance sets the hype in motion

It was like rolling out a vat of hair gel in front of Gavin Henson and telling him to apply it liberally. No, the Welsh camp probably knew that last night's entreaty to the nation "not to put too much on James Hook's shoulders" would fall upon deaf ears. By then, the horse had already bolted, the legend had already been written, the star had already been born.
