The best worst movie cast ever

Since The Expendables, the 2010 film that brought together a smorgasbord of action heroes – including Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li and Bruce Willis – brought home $200m (£125m) at the box office, it was only a matter of time before the ludicrous mix of testosterone and brawn was recreated elsewhere (incidentally, The Expendables 2 is already in post-production). So news arrives of The Tomb, an upcoming flick with – if it's possible – an even more ridiculous cast.

At four-down at half-time and faced with an uphill battle to get even, the blue side took the only approach they could see fit. Kick the blazes out of their opponents in black and white and hope to nick a few goals from a team clearly outclassing them.

Tempers flared in the Celebrity Big Brother house after Lady Sovereign took a tin of corned beef from the contestants' meagre food rations.

Celebrity Big Brother: A house where nobody knows your name

The underlying theme for what Channel Four promise us will be their final Celebrity Big Brother had been supplied by Jean Paul Sartre – that famous suggestion from Huis Clos that "Hell is other people". Regular viewers of CBB's opening episodes will know that Sartre got it slightly wrong: for those desperate enough to enter this mausoleum of fame: "Hell is other people not having a clue who you are".

Vinnie Jones 'offered Big Brother cash deal'

Vinnie Jones is said to have been offered one million dollars to join his former football rival Paul Gascoigne in the Celebrity Big Brother (CBB) house.

Robins: 'I saved Fergie's job but there will be no favours'

Picture the scene on Tuesday night at Oakwell, after a much-changed Manchester United side beat Barnsley 2-1 in the fourth round of the Carling Cup. Sir Alex Ferguson, mellowed by the result and perhaps a glass or two of good red wine, leans across the table in Mark Robins' office.

Tom Sutcliffe: Honesty is in large part a social virtue

I don't have very high hopes for the Honesty Lab, an online research project set up by a group of academics in order to assist judges to gauge shifting public attitudes as to what counts as culpable (or punishable) dishonesty. The problem is apparently this – that some juries feel the black and white intransigence of the law isn't a good match for the murky shades of grey one encounters in life, and have a tendency to acquit in cases where they have a sneaky sympathy with what the perpetrator has done. I thought the whole point about juries was their perversity – that an assembly of one's peers would temper the inflexible severity of the law with a consensual understanding of morality. But apparently there's some anxiety that it's all been getting out of hand recently, so the Honesty Lab website sets out to take an audit of public attitudes to varying forms of dishonesty so that judges will be able to aim off in giving their directions.
