Stephen Fry is set to appear as a special guest star on the new series of Doctor Who. The 61-year-old comedy veteran was reportedly spotted by fans filming scenes in Swansea with the Doctor herself, Jodie Whittaker. A tweet from Twitter user @Bethasaurus95 (via Who fansite Doctor Who TV) claimed that Fry was seen wearing a 1940s style tweed suit, accompanied by a picture of the scene’s set, though sadly now deleted – the show-makers are notoriously hot on keeping things under wraps.
Stacey Dooley has revealed that her Strictly Come Dancing routine this week will find her performing some of the male parts of the tango, in tribute to Jodie Whittaker's new Time Lord.
