Annual 'Knob Throwing' event cancelled because it has 'grown too big and hard to handle'
knob-throwing competition has been cancelled as organisers announced it had grown too big to be run by a village committee.Organisers of the Dorset Knob Throwing event say it’s too large for them to run properly and also have a ‘knob’ supply issue.The Dorchester event brings together people of all ages to throw local hard biscuits - or knobs - and is measured to see whose biscuit is thrown the furthest.Officials say it’s now too popular to host, and “agreements to provide the biscuits for the event’s games also took much longer than anticipated”.The Knob Throwing and Frome Valley Food Festival, which was launched in 2008, was originally due to be held on May 1 this year.In 2019, the event attracted over 8,000 people from across the UK.A disagreement over the venue meant it didn’t take place in 2020, and it was scrapped last year too because of Covid.Committee chair Alexandra Watts said: “It is with great sadness that the Dorset Knob Throwing and Frome Valley Food Festival is unable to go ahead on May 1.“We had more than 8,000 people attend the 2019 event, meaning it has reached such a size that it simply cannot be run by a small village committee.“We’ve looked at various options but sadly couldn’t make any of them work for this year for many reasons.”Knobs used in the contest are a traditional Dorset biscuit made using fermented dough and given three separate bakings.The contest sees up to 4000 rivals try to hurl their knobs - a type of Dorset biscuit dating back hundreds of years.People can also take part in guess the weight of the biggest knob, a knob and spoon race and knob darts.The festival has had other issues before.In 2017 there was disaster when rainy weather made the biscuits soggy and heavier and harder to

'Disgraceful and disrespectful' Rachel Riley hits out at government in wake of #partygate
Boris Johnson is facing mass scrutiny as it has been alleged that Downing Street staff held two parties the night before Prince Philip's funeral - at a time when Covid restrictions banned indoor mixing.Taking to social media, Countdown star Rachel Riley has shared her thoughts on the government’s actions in a scathing tweet.The newest reports of illegal Downing Street parties, first brought to light by The Telegraph, say that the events took place on April 16, 2021, and went on until the early hours.Boris is facing calls to resign from the opposition as well as some senior Tories but has urged MPs to wait for the outcome of an investigation into lockdown gatherings in government buildings by senior civil servant Sue Gray.Taking to Twitter Rachel, 36, shared a video of Sky News presenter Trevor Phillips recalling the death of his own daughter during this period. Rachel tweeted out to her 693,200 followers: “As more and more has trickled out about party after party, the image of the Queen sitting alone at her husband’s funeral, and stories like @TrevorPTweets really put the behaviour of the government into perspective. “Disgraceful and disrespectful spring to mind,” she added.The tweet she shared read: “Trevor Phillips shares his experience during lockdown, when one of his daughters was very ill.“She died not long after the funeral of Prince Philip, when it is alleged that those working for the government met despite Covid rules.”The video clip attached came from Trevor Phillips on Sunday, where the presenter could be seen trying to restrain his emotions as he challenged Oliver Dowden, one of the party’s co-chairs, over whether the prime minister understood public anger over these gatherings.During the interview, Trevor

Piers Morgan, 56, will appear on BBC One’s Sunday Morning show with Sophie Raworth tomorrow at 9am.The former Good Morning Britain presenter has hinted that he has something in store for Boris Johnson, asking him to tune into the broadcast.Tweeting out to his 7.9 million followers, Piers quipped about coming out of his “enforced retirement”. He wrote: “UPDATE: It’s been a quiet news week, so I thought I’d come out of (enforced) breakfast show retirement and do the paper review on BBC1’s new Sunday Morning show with @sophieraworth.”“Tune in from 9am… especially you, Prime Minister @BorisJohnson,” he added somewhat cryptically. Piers’ followers had a mixed reaction to the post, with some eagerly anticipating his return, while others seemed unimpressed by the journalist. “Something big is coming isn't it please say yes,” Maggie1152 speculated.“Not expecting something big to come up in time for this are we?” asked TheMrAlex6.“Oh please bring up Johnson isolating (hiding from the public) when he doesn't need to,” Anne Milne pleaded. “Oh what a nice little Sunday morning treat, don’t hold back I’ve missed you honest opinions and saying how it is!” wrote Nikki Middleton.“Oh exciting, hope you give Boris a good grilling be it a review,” added Steve Gale.“Me too, so miss Piers on TV, love him or hate him..he always delivers a controversial debate,” mused Sara Nicholls. Meanwhile, others weren’t interested, including Minesawater who wrote: “Nah, you’re alright, mate. I’d rather watch a few episodes of Mrs Brown’s boys.”“I look forward to you flouncing off set again,” Paul C added in reference to the moment Piers left Good Morning Britain after being called out on his comments against Meghan Markle.

lockdown parties”.The Government came under fire after footage of Boris Johnson‘s former spokesperson Allegra Stratton showed her referring to a “fictional party” as a “business meeting with cheese and wine”.It now faces fresh backlash after a recently leaked email from the Prime Minister’s principal private secretary showed that Downing Street officials held a garden gathering during lockdown.Ricky weighed in on the controversy as he spoke to ITV News ahead of the release of the latest season of After Life on Netflix.The comedian said he understood how those who abided by the restrictions throughout the pandemic felt after the reports came out.He said on Tuesday: “I get it, I get the anger. It’s palpable.“Why wouldn’t they be angry?“Myself and everyone kept to the rules.“I think I’ve been naive all my life, it’s only now that I think… why do we trust them?“Of course we shouldn’t trust the people in charge, that’s how they are in charge.“They shouldn’t be trusted,” the actor concluded.Now Ricky is preparing for the launch of season 3 of After Life on Friday, but filming the last six episodes of the show has been filled with challenges.The production process was put on hold during the coronavirus pandemic and Ricky even admitted he was anxious over whether or not the new season would go ahead.The third season was initially announced in May 2020 after season two was released in April 2020.Nearly a year later, filming finally kicked off and wrapped in June 2021.Ricky himself confessed the uncertainty of the pandemic caused him “anxiety”.He told Deadline on Friday: “It was a year of anxiety, thinking whether it would it go ahead.”“But we didn’t drop a minute due to Covid,” Ricky continued.

'Sorry to get emotional' Naga Munchetty fights back tears over heartbreaking on-air moment
BBC Radio 5 Live presenter Naga Munchetty accepted calls today from listeners who wanted to share their views on Boris Johnson and the ongoing investigation into a party that took place at Number 10 Downing Street.The caller in question told Naga that she had broken the rules during lockdown to see her father, who was isolating alone while his health declined, and shared her “controversial” opinion on Mr. Johnson in light of this fact. Naga, 46, kept calm as her caller, Cath, became choked up as she talked about her father, who died from COVID-19 at the end of 2020. Speaking about her father was clearly difficult for Cath, and at one point another listener texted in to tell her that she had “such grace”, whilst claiming that Boris was clearly lacking in that department. All the while, Naga continued to interview Cath in a considered and measured manner, until the end of the interview, where she couldn’t help but get choked up. Naga became emotional when she asked Cath for her father’s name. She asked: “You have amazing grace, Cath, do you want to tell me your father’s name? Shall we remember him?”Cath confirmed that her father’s name was Roger, causing Naga to take a brief pause. Her voice breaking, Naga continued: “Cath, I’m sorry… I know… Sorry I didn’t mean to get emotional. “I’m so sorry for the pain, and thank you.
