John Bishop has shared the aftermath of a car crash he was involved in on Tuesday, which was caused by a “big chicken”.

The comedian posted a short clip on his Instagram story, joking: “I’m in the back of a police car, but for good reason! These lads are helping me out, you’ll see a picture later as to why.”

What then followed was a picture of his Land Rover on the side of the road, with its windshield smashed after hitting the motorway barrier.

He explained: “I was driving to catch a ferry to Ireland when something happened!! To avoid a car that was swerving to avoid a ‘big chicken’ as I overtook, I ended up like this.”

The comedian then assured his followers that “nobody was hurt” in the accident, as there had been “no oncoming traffic” at the time of the crash, although it sounds like the aforementioned “big chicken” wasn’t quite as lucky..

“Amazing how helpful people can be when you need them,” he added, as he shouted out the police officers who helped him after the incident. “And thanks to the other drivers for staying including Andrew who I think sadly hit the ‘big chicken’ anyway.”

He later posted a clip of himself having finally arrived in Ireland as a foot passenger, “without a car, but we’re getting there”.

While John is best known for his stand-up, it was revealed earlier this year that he’d landed a major acting role.

Back in January, it was confirmed he’d be playing a companion in the new series of Doctor Who, which has been heavily rumoured to be Jodie Whittaker’s last at the helm.

Piers Morgan’s walk-off on Good Morning Britain was one of the biggest talking points of the week, so it was only natural the Gogglebox gang would be giving their verdict on Friday night. 

And sure enough, they all had plenty to say about Piers’ tantrum, which came just hours before it was announced he would be leaving the programme. 

The presenter walked off the ITV breakfast show on Tuesday after a row with weather presenter Alex Beresford over Piers’ repeated criticisms of Meghan Markle, following her US TV interview with Oprah Winfrey

Piers Morgan walked off Tuesday's Good Morning Britain

The Gogglebox families watched the drama unfold as part of Friday’s edition of the hit Channel 4 show, and they were all on Alex’s side.  

As Mica Ven and her partner Marcus Luther watched Piers try to stop Alex from speaking, she said: “He usually does the weather, let him speak man.”

“Alex is ready to rip in to him, you know,” Marcus predicted. 

Tom Malone added of Piers: “Shut up a minute, let somebody else have a word.”

Gogglebox's Marcus and Mica

As Piers then stormed off the set, Pete Sandiford joked: “I didn’t know you could let fireworks off at half six in the morning... I don’t get why he’s walked off because that’s just not him at all. 

His sister Sophie commented: “He’s just had his arse handed to him on national TV by the weatherman.”

Tom said: “Good, get gone. Shut the door behind him.”

Marcus added: “This is amazing what Meghan and Harry story has done to the bloody world man. Everyone is tripping. I love it!”

ITV faced calls to reprimand Piers after Monday’s show, when he cast doubt on Meghan Markle’s recent claims about her mental health and her experiences of racism after joining the Royal Family.

“I’m sorry, I don’t believe a word she says,” Piers said. “I wouldn’t believe her if she read me a weather report, and the fact that she’s fired up this onslaught against our royal family, I think is contemptible.”

It was later revealed Piers had sparked more than 41,000 complaints to Ofcom, after which it was announced he was leaving GMB effective immediately.

It was confirmed on Friday that Meghan also issued a formal complaint to the broadcasting regulator, following reports she had also contacted ITV over the matter, concerned about the affect his words would have on others who are struggling with their mental health. 

Piers was also criticised by mental health charity Mind, who work with ITV on its Britain Get Talking initiative. 

Gogglebox airs Fridays at 9pm on Channel 4.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren has been running on a platform of breaking up Facebook, Amazon, and Google, which she compares to big oil, and she recently pledged to stop taking donations from tech executives.

So far, only Sanders, Warren, and Yang have specific plans detailing how they will handle big tech — the most common position among candidates is support for regulation and antitrust enforcement, but not necessarily using executive power to break up tech companies.

Elizabeth Warren has made breaking up big tech companies like Facebook, Google, and Amazon a cornerstone of her campaign, and she has the most specific plan out of all the candidates.

She describes them as monopolies, and she says that her administration would pass legislation designating them as "platform utilities," which would prohibit companies from owning both a platform and participants, like Amazon acting as a seller in its online marketplace, for example.

Sanders has also made wealth inequality a signature issue of his career, and he recently tweeted "billionaires should not exist," which would include tech executives like Mark Zuckerberg and Jeff Bezos.

Amy Poehler and Tina Fey returned to present the Golden Globes for the first time in six years on Sunday night, and did a pretty great job of hosting on a night like none the long-running awards show has ever seen before.

The duo were confirmed to be hosting this year’s Golden Globes way back in January 2020, when they could never have predicted they’d end up presenting it on different sides of the US due to the pandemic.

Yes, Amy and Tina shared hosting duties via video-link, with the former in California and the latter in New York, so celebrity guest presenters wouldn’t have to fly across the country during the pandemic.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler had the unenviable task of kicking off an awards season like no other.

Opening up the show with an eight-minute comedy routine, the pair delivered some brilliant one-liners ribbing the nominees and the all-round ridiculousness of the situation.

Here are a few of our favourites from their Golden Globes opener...

Summing up the dystopia that was 2020

Amy Poehler: “I’m Amy Poheler here at the Beverly Hilton, district 7, New Angeles. And this is the 78th annual Hunger Games.”

Seizing the opportunity for a great visual gag

Amy Poehler: Tina and I are hosting from two different cities tonight but the technology is so great you are never going to be able to tell the difference. It’s going to be smooth sailing.

Tina Fey: You won’t even notice.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler

Poking fun at how many of the films nominated for Golden Globes in 2021 passed many of us by

Tina Fey: What an exciting night! All the big blockbuster movies that came out of this year are nominated. Parts Of A Lady! Irish Goodnight! Mauricio’s Delve! 

Amy Poehler: Day Planner! Grunk! Ali G Goes To Chicago!

Tina Fey: And we’ll be honouring all the TV you binge-watched this year. The American Office… old episodes of Columbo… very one-sided news programmes.

Amy Poehler: And of course the cranberry juice skateboard guy is going to skateboard to all the nominated songs tonight. How exciting!

Praising the first responders in the audience (sort of) 

Tina Fey: Normally this room is full of celebrities but tonight our audience is made up of smoking hot first responders and essential workers. We are so grateful for the work that you do and that you’re here… so that the celebrities can stay safely at home.

Amy Poehler: This front table right here usually houses the biggest stars in the world… Brad Pitt’s always waving at me like ‘Amy! Amy!’ and I’m like, ‘dude, I’m working, not now’... Quentin Tarantino crawling under the tables just touching people’s feet… the point is, do whatever you want. Because they do.

And of course, they couldn’t not mention the recent controversy that followed reports that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association – who decide the winners of the Golden Globes – doesn’t have a single Black member

Tina Fey: The Hollywood Foreign Press Association is made up of around 90 international no-Black journalists who attend movie junkets each year in search of a better life. We say around 90 because a couple of them might be ghosts, and it’s rumoured that the German member is just a sausage that somebody drew a little face on.

Tina Fey: Soul is a beautiful Pixar animated movie where a middle-aged Black man’s soul accidentally gets knocked out of his body and into a cat. The HFPA really responded to this movie, because they do have five cat members.

Amy Poehler: Everybody is understandably upset at the HFPA and their choices. Look, a lot of flashy garbage got nominated, but that happens. That’s their thing. But a number of Black actors and Black-led projects were overlooked…  

Tina Fey: … the point is, even with stupid things, inclusivity is important, and there are no Black members of the HFPA. I realise maybe you guys didn’t get the memo, because your workplace is the back booth of a French McDonald’s. But you gotta change that. So here’s to changing it.

Tina and Amy on stage later in the evening

Getting into the key differences between the TV and film categories 

Tina Fey: I think the rule is, if their fake teeth look real, that’s a movie. And if their real teeth look fake, that’s TV.

Amy Poehler: If the British actors are playing British people, it’s TV. If they’re playing Americans, it’s a movie. 

And then they got onto some of the nominees like The Prom... 

Tina Fey: The Queen’s Gambit is whatever James Corden was up to in The Prom, I guess. The Prom came out at the perfect time, because this year so many teenagers didn’t get to go to their proms. So they could watch James Corden and Meryl Streep go to it instead. That’s still fun, right, guys?

...The Undoing…

Amy Poehler: The Undoing was a sexy and dramatic mystery where Nicole Kidman’s coat is suspected of murdering her wig.

...Music… 

Tina Fey: Sia’s controversial film Music is nominated for Best International Flop-er-oonie. I don’t want to get into it, guys, but it’s real problematic. And Twitter is saying it’s the most offensive casting since Kate Hudson was the Weight Watchers spokesperson.

...and, of course, Emily In Paris 

Tina Fey: Emily In Paris is nominated for Best TV Series – Musical Or Comedy, and I for one can’t wait to find out which it is. French Exit is what I did after watching the first episode of Emily In Paris.

And finally, introducing the first guest presenter of the night 

Tina Fey: Could this whole night have been an email? Yes! But then we wouldn’t get the chance to see our beautiful first presenter. Like a child’s skeleton pyjamas, she simply glows… Ms Laura Dern.

John Bishop has shared the aftermath of a car crash he was involved in on Tuesday, which was caused by a “big chicken”.

The comedian posted a short clip on his Instagram story, joking: “I’m in the back of a police car, but for good reason! These lads are helping me out, you’ll see a picture later as to why.”

What then followed was a picture of his Land Rover on the side of the road, with its windshield smashed after hitting the motorway barrier.

He explained: “I was driving to catch a ferry to Ireland when something happened!! To avoid a car that was swerving to avoid a ‘big chicken’ as I overtook, I ended up like this.”

The comedian then assured his followers that “nobody was hurt” in the accident, as there had been “no oncoming traffic” at the time of the crash, although it sounds like the aforementioned “big chicken” wasn’t quite as lucky..

“Amazing how helpful people can be when you need them,” he added, as he shouted out the police officers who helped him after the incident. “And thanks to the other drivers for staying including Andrew who I think sadly hit the ‘big chicken’ anyway.”

He later posted a clip of himself having finally arrived in Ireland as a foot passenger, “without a car, but we’re getting there”.

While John is best known for his stand-up, it was revealed earlier this year that he’d landed a major acting role.

Back in January, it was confirmed he’d be playing a companion in the new series of Doctor Who, which has been heavily rumoured to be Jodie Whittaker’s last at the helm.
