Despite my obsession with Game of Thrones and Lucy Worsley’s The First Georgians right now, I am still televisually smitten with MTV’s Catfish. The show that exposes online love fraudsters. The throwaway youth TV show that one’s mind just cannot throw away. Instead, one sits post- episode genuinely saddened that our human need to love and be loved is so destructive. Or that the earth’s supply of gullible optimists may well be infinite.

Despite a lot of its most famous shows (Friends, Seinfeld, Taxi) being filmed in warehouses in Los Angeles, New York City has made the most of its use as a setting in TV and films.

Sarah Storey: It's a massive surprise there are three Paralympians nominated for Sports Personality of the Year
Sunday 09 December 2012
I was shocked to be nominated for Sports Personality of the Year And it’s a massive surprise that we’ve got two other Paralympians nominated too [swimmer Ellie Simmonds and wheelchair racer David Weir]. Ellie’s career had a similar start to mine [the 18-year-old Paralympian won two golds at each of the past two Paralympics] but although I had five medals by the time I was 18, I was unheard of. The previous five Paralympic Games I was involved in went under the radar – this was my sixth. So that difference is an easy way to measure how far we’ve come [with disabled sport].
