Love Island’s Benny on camera 2 and other accidental reality TV stars

Thanks to presenter Iain Stirling’s joshing, a camera operator on the ITV2 show has become the latest unwitting celebrity

It would be an enjoyable conclusion to a reality TV show that has plumbed new depths in banality and flesh exposure if its breakout star were not Olivia and Chris or Amber and Kem, but Benny, the guy on camera 2.

Love Island fans have been abuzz since a picture of the cameraman appeared on Twitter, circulated by narrator Iain Stirling. It shows an unassuming bearded man who had, until then, been mentioned only by name.

Fringe, Supernatural, Bob's Burgers... zombies pop up in all kinds of surprising places. Remember that time Ramsay Street was invaded?

Back in the 80s and 90s, the only groups regularly enjoying zombie movies were habitually stoned students, young lads looking to prove their mettle by lobbing VHS grenades of gore at each other's minds, and great sweating giants with mutton-chops corseted into two-sizes-too-small Iron Maiden T-shirts. Very few couples partook of the genre; liver-ripping and eye-gouging was rarely seen as the essential romantic complement to an evening entwined on the couch.

Aside from George A Romero’s satirical side-swipes at society, the majority of zombie movies were gloriously nasty, schlocky yuck-fests, with names like ‘Return Of The Great Zombie Intenstine Carnival III’, 'Zombies! Zombies, Oh, Christ Zombies, They're Eating My Eyes!' and ‘I Claw-hammered My Zombie Grandma’S Head Off’. Anyone with access to a video camera,

Screen Actors Guild Awards recognize ‘Birdman’, ‘Boyhood’, ‘Modern Family’

  • SoundOnSight
The 21st Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards Nominations were revealed Wednesday morning, serving as yet another precursor on the long road to the Oscars.

In the film categories, Birdman was the big winner, scoring four nominations, including for Michael Keaton, Edward Norton and Emma Stone, as well as the collective ensemble cast. Boyhood followed right in its footsteps with three nods for Ethan Hawke, Patricia Arquette and another ensemble nomination.

The big surprises of the morning’s nominations started with Jake Gyllenhaal for Nightcrawler, a bubble contender in a crowded Best Actor race, Jennifer Aniston for Cake, a bubble contender in a disappointingly less crowded Best Actress race, Robert Duvall in the poorly reviewed The Judge and Naomi Watts for St. Vincent (Watts was in Birdman as well, but that must’ve slipped SAG’s minds).

Jeremy Miller, Star Of 'Growing Pains,' Opens Up About Alcoholism

Growing Pains star Jeremy Miller recently opened up about his battle with alcoholism and the medical implant he says has helped keep him sober.

Jeremy Miller Talks About Alcoholism

Miller starred as Ben Seaver, the youngest son in the Seaver family, on Growing Pains from 1985 to 1992, and took some time away from acting after the show ended. Instead, Miller reveals he began binge drinking after the show ended. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Miller says he would start every day with a trip to the liquor store and drink until he passed out.

At his lowest moments, Miller admitted that he considered suicide, saying, “There were probably a few nights it was awful close. I’m glad I did not own a gun, because I hated myself so thoroughly, I would have done something very stupid.”

Miller made the decision to truly get sober about eight years ago, around

'The Voice' Recap: Blake Shelton Picks His Top 3

Blake Shelton narrowed his team down to the top 3 artists who will perform in the live rounds of The Voice: Audra McLaughlin, Sisaundra Lewis and Jake Worthington.

The Voice finally reached the Playoffs after weeks of Blind Auditions. As Carson Daly explained at the beginning of the episode, during the Playoffs each artist will get to choose their song to perform for their coaches in the hopes of making it to the live rounds, where their fates will no longer be decided by their coaches but by American voters.

Audra McLaughlin was first up, singing Martina McBride’s “A Broken Wing.” The judges loved her performance, and Adam Levine even admitted she could be one to beat, calling her “spectacular.”

Following Audra’s powerhouse performance was Ryan Whyte Maloney, taking on Shinedown’s “Second Chance.” Usher gives Ryan encouraging feedback, comparing him to Adam Levine. Shakira is a little less enthusiastic,
