This week’s show is being recorded on Easter Monday as Ant spent his Birthday weekend in London watching Cats and Les Misérables. He,Liz and Chloe got to meet Kerry Ellis for the second time and, not only did she wish Ant a Happy Birthday, she remembered them too.

Tom spent all of Sunday at the local race track, Brands Hatch, to watch the British Touring Car Championship, where his iPhone battery failed him after being propositioned by a grid girl.

Ant has found a website that apathetic voters should use as a guide to which party they should vote for in the impending General Election. voteforpolicies.org.uk

Double Formula 1 World Champion, Lewis Hamilton, has decided that he’s  not happy to just be a brilliant racing driver and earn millions from sponsorship deals. He is now looking to start a recording career after splitting up from his girlfriend, Nicole Scherzinger, who he had built a recording studio for so they could spend more time together. D’oh!

Ant sent Tom the Deadpool movie script that was leaked recently. Tom read it and is reporting back on some of the good and weird points from it. Including a few strange skits involving – the then alive – Amy Winehouse.

This week Ant finally got round to seeing Star Trek Into Darkness and liked it and Tom saw Rise of the Guardians which wasn’t as bad as he had feared. Some guilty pleasures are admitted to.

On this weeks podcast Ant and Tom have had a very strange week. Ant has been ill with gastroenteritis and Tom has had a stressful week thanks to Ryanair’s booking agents, eDreams. (They’re a shower of shite, never EVER book a flight through them as they lie to you just to take your money and then will only communicate with you via Twitter, sporadically. Crooks.) On a brighter note, he and Jo made the most of a bad situation by having a nice couple of days in London instead.

It’s the Oscars tonight and Ant and Tom put forth their predictions for Hollywood’s greatest night! How close will their predictions be this year? Only a few more hours to find out. Let us know if you agree with them.

Ant has been playing a game called Rocksmith, which is kind of like Guitar Hero, except you use a real guitar. Which is obviously better than playing a tiny plastic guitar with buttons on the neck rather than strings.

A brief discussion is had about Lazer Team, the upcoming feature film from Rooster Teeth, you may have heard Ant mention them once or twice.

Check out the teaser:

In local news, a woman’s hair is set on fire in a McDonalds, some underage kids elope around Kent on trains, raising the question, can you be a paedophile at 17? And finally a UKIP MP, Rozanne Duncan, has been fired for saying she doesn’t like people with ‘negroid features’ yet proclaims not to be a racist. As with most things UKIP related, she digs herself a very deep hole while trying to defend her shocking statement. Know your enemy, people.

The new trailer for Thor: The Dark World was released today and this time we get more! More plot, more characters, a better look at the locations including London and Asgaard, Idris Elba has taken off his mask as Heimdall, Tom Hiddleston is back as Loki and seems to be playing everyone against each other as usual, the voice-over is done by Anthony Hopkins.

Stellan Skarsgård, Kat Dennings and Natalie Portman are all back, the latter seemingly transported with Thor (Chris Hemsworth) to Asgaard and put in danger by the protagonist Malekith, whose face you can’t see in this trailer, but is played by Christopher Ecclestone. It looks like it’s going to be big. Very big!

Dave Gilmour’s son, Charlie, jailed for 16 months

Pink Floyd guitarist Dave Gilmour’s son, Charlie, has been jailed today over his drug-fuelled actions at the student protests in London on 9 December 2010.

He pleaded guilty to charges of violent disorder. These instances included throwing a bin at the convoy of cars containing Prince Charles, defacing the Cenotaph and breaking the window of Topshop in Oxford Street where he stole the leg of one of the mannequins. Judge Nicholas Price QC said: “Such outrageous and deeply offensive behaviour gives a clear indication of how out of control you were that day. It caused public outrage and understandably so.”

Gilmour admitted, at Kingston Crown Court today, that he was drunk and had taken LSD and Valium before taking part in the protests and did not remember throwing the bin at the car. He even admitted not knowing what the Cenotaph was before hanging off the Union Jack flag flying from it.

The incident at the Cenotaph wasn’t included in the charges of violent disorder, but was noted as being disrespectful of the war dead. Judge Price QC said: “For a young man of your intelligence and education and background to profess to not know what the Cenotaph represents defies belief. You have shown disrespect to those who gave the ultimate sacrifice, to those who fell defending this country.”

But Gilmour was given some credit for apologising for his actions.

“You expressed yourself in a fitting way when you said how deeply ashamed you are for what is, as you acknowledge, the terrible insult to those who gave their lives,” the judge said.

It is unclear whether Gilmour will be appealing against his conviction.
