CORONATION STREET star Anne Kirkbride quits Twitter over abuse from internet bullies
In a final message before deleting her account, she reportedly said: "Been nice knowing you Twitter. Apologies to all the lovely people I’ve met on here. But in all honesty, I’ve had enough."
GENERAL HOSPITAL's Maurice Benard on the changes in his character: I love the way they've affected him
"They're writing Sonny as a man, as opposed to a mafia guy or a killer with a good heart. He's just a well-rounded man. And he's still badass - I went off, today! Sonny just thinks a little more, especially with the woman he loves. He tries. And they tell me during scenes, 'Not so big. Be more supportive.' Wow, they never told me this, before. It's changed. I'm into it and I think, as far as I can see on twitter, [the fans are] all into it. A year ago, the fans on twitter hated everything I was doing. They hated the show. It was like, 'Why is this happening? This is stupid!' Now, it’s all positive."
Cogs in the wheel: A day in the life of a Ramadan soap star
It’s the last day of shooting for ARAFA AL-BAHR, a Ramadan soap opera that began the night before Ramadan and will continue until the last day. Like the 72 other shows this year, the plot and storyline have to stretch over the next 30 days, entertaining viewers nightly and pulling in the show’s cost in advertising for the channel.
Brooklyn Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov is a fan of THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS
"I was a junior in college, and I finished class at 11. One day I started watching, and I was hooked."
THE ARCHERS: Don't let it turn into EASTENDERS
"John Yorke, acting editor of THE ARCHERS, has said that he wants to make the series 'darker and bigger', chilling words for fans of the 61-year-old soap. No wonder the ratings have tumbled to just 4.63 million, 400,000 less than this time last year."
Former EASTENDERS star Martin Kemp to enter CELEBRITY BIG BROTHER
He will be joined in the Big Brother house by another former EASTENDERS star, Cheryl Ferguson, and former CORONATION STREET star Julie Goodyear.

"It was a great script," Sumpter said about Sparkle. "I’m glad they expanded upon her role. I guess I drew from different people in my life who embody strength and intelligence: my mom, women in my family. I thought it important for the role to come across as Dee is like her mother: strong and protective. She’ll say truths that others are afraid to say. I love that about the role."
DAYS OF OUR LIVES' Freddie Smith on bullying
"It’s very emotional to be bullied. When you go through it it’s a big part of your life," said Smith. "I'm hoping I can make an impact and show how bullying negatively affects people and make a difference. I think that everyone will be able to relate to this storyline, so it is important to the show."
