Michael McIntyre has revealed he cut a joke about coronavirus from his new Netflix comedy special, which was recorded earlier this year.The comedian’s latest stand-up show – which is now available to watch on the streaming service – was filmed in front of a live audience in March just weeks before the UK went into lockdown.Speaking about the comedy special, titled Michael McIntyre: Showman in an interview on Jessie Ware’s Table Manners podcast, he said that he made the decision to take one gag about the pandemic out of his set. “I did a joke about [coronavirus],” Michael explained. “I introduced myself on stage when all the hand washing stuff was starting and I said, ‘Ladies and gentlemen, please put your hands together and wash them for 30 seconds as we welcome Michael McIntyre’.“I actually came on and said, ‘This could be the last time we get together in a crowd’. I said it as a joke! I should never have said that.”He then added that he “took all that stuff” out of the finished special, noting: “There are a few more jokes in the Netflix special which I’m hoping are still funny but it’s worried me slightly.”Michael previously revealed to Metro that he considered taking one anecdote out of the set, which saw him confusing disposable underwear for a face mask when he went for a massage in Hong Kong.“I have to be honest with you,” he said. “I’ve been worrying about it for months about whether that joke is still funny. I would wake my wife up in the middle of the night and go, ‘Is this thing funny?’.”“I had other jokes about it, and then now it’s commonplace and we’re all wearing these masks and it’s a completely reasonable mistake to make,” he added.Michael McIntyre: Showman is now streaming on Netflix.

Great British Bake Off fans should not be able to tell the new series was produced in the middle of a global pandemic, according to a top Channel 4 boss. Producers went to extraordinary lengths to make the 11th run of the hit baking competition, as they navigated Covid regulations that proved to be logistically challenging. Kelly Webb-Lamb, deputy director of programmes and head of popular factual for Channel 4, has detailed the “enormous feat” of getting the show into production, but assured viewers: “What you will see looks like normal Bake Off.”Speaking at the virtual Edinburgh TV Festival, she said: “I think we all felt, I certainly felt that working to ensure we could get Bake Off back on the screen was such an important thing for us as a channel, such an important thing for the audience and Love Productions (who make Bake Off) were just full of ingenuity and determination to get it to happen.”It was previously revealed all contestants, cast, crew and members of the production team had been forced to staying together in a “bubble” at a hotel for the duration of the six-week shoot. Detailing some of the extraordinary lengths the team went to in order to ensure everyone’s safety, Kelly continued: “The car you’re driving to set also has to be quarantined, nobody can have been in it for the time of quarantine and then everything that comes on to set has to be properly disinfected to protect everybody on set and the production.“That then means that set is Covid-secure and that enables a little bit more flexibility so in the tent what you will see looks like normal Bake Off because it it is normal Bake Off and we’ve been able to do that.“That does mean the talent and cast and crew lived in that bubble for the duration of production which is obviously different to how we would normally make Bake Off.“I think that on screen it will feel like Bake Off, in the way they were living it was different but it was an incredible feat from Love (Productions, which makes it) to pull that off,” she added. Filming was originally due to take place in the spring in order for the show to begin airing this month. Production eventually began in “deep secret” in July, with filming wrapping last week. The upcoming series will feature Matt Lucas’ debut as Sandi Toksvig’s replacement, as he joins co-host Noel Fielding and judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith in the tent. READ MORE: Great British Bake Off Has Already Resumed Filming 'In Deep Secret' Amid Coronavirus Changes Paul Hollywood 'Surprised' And 'Upset' By Sandi Toksvig's Bake Off Exit Sue Perkins Reveals 'Painful' Paul Hollywood Fall Out That's Left Her 'Devastated'
Denise Van Outen has said she had “no idea” she had coronavirus, after an antibodies test returned a positive result. The TV personality revealed she had undergone a test to see whether she had contracted Covid-19 and was surprised when she it confirmed antibodies were present in her blood. Denise shared her experience of getting tested on her Instagram Story, revealing she’d decided to get a test after a friend did. “Doesn’t hurt, just a little prick,” she captioned a video of a medic taking a small amount of blood from her fingertip. “Turns out I’ve had Covid-19 and I had no idea,” the Celebrity Gogglebox star said. “I’m negative now but possibly had it a few months back.”A positive antibody test indicates that a person was likely infected with the virus that causes Covid-19. However, there has been concerns about how accurate some antibody tests are. Actor Idris Elba previously revealed he had presented no symptoms of coronavirus when a normal test for the virus returned a positive result in March. While asymptomatic, the Luther star later spoke of the impact his diagnosis had on his mental health, telling Radio Times. “Mentally, it hit me very bad, because a lot was unknown about it.“I felt very compelled to speak about it, just because it was such an unknown.“So the mental impact of that on both myself and my wife was pretty traumatic.”READ MORE: Madonna Tests Positive For Coronavirus Antibodies, Says Positively Odd Thing What We Know About Covid-19 Antibodies Is Changing.

BBC newsreader George Alagiah has told of how he has “learnt to live with the uncertainty” during his fight against cancer. The 64-year-old was first diagnosed with an advanced form of bowel cancer that spread to his liver in 2014, but the disease returned in 2018 and has since spread to his lungs. George is now undergoing intensive rounds of chemotherapy, which leaves him having a “shit week” of feeling “totally wiped out”. However, he has told The Times (£) that he no longer worries about his illness. “Just after the first diagnosis it was easy to get overwhelmed by dark thoughts in the early hours, but I’ve learnt to live with the uncertainty,” he said in a first-person piece for the paper. “Do I worry? No point. Every night I lie in bed and ask myself, are you going to be around tomorrow? Yes, I am.“That’s a nice thought to have as I’m falling asleep.”George previously revealed how “doctors have never used the word ‘chronic’ or ‘cure’” about his cancer. In another interview with The Times after he was told the cancer had spread to his lungs, he said: “They’ve never used the word ‘terminal’ either. I’ve always said to my oncologist, ‘Tell me when I need to sort my affairs out’, and he’s not told me that.”News his cancer had spread came shortly after George had tested positive for Covid-19 in March.Reflecting on his experience with the virus in his recent Times piece, George said originally doctors had thought his symptoms were a side effect of his cancer drugs. He said: “The fact that I’m being treated for cancer means that I should have been shielding, but I also contracted Covid and beat it, so I’ve been able to carry on working in between my chemo sessions.“The Covid was picked up by my cancer doctors and was so mild that we thought it was one of the usual fevers that you get when you’re on immunosuppressive drugs. It seems strange to say this, but I sort of ignored it.”READ MORE: What Are The Symptoms Of Bowel Cancer – And How Do You Treat It?

A Swiss developer has pulled source code from 50 high-profile companies, including Microsoft and Nintendo, and published it in a public online repository on GitLab. The leak of mounds of original code behind Nintendo's classic games has specifically been dubbed "Gigaleak" online. According to a report from tech site Bleeping Computer, the developer was able to collect the code thanks to misconfigured tools used by the companies that leave proprietary information exposed, and some firms may not even be aware of the massive leak yet. Published source code gives people an inside look at certain company products, but it can also provide cyber attackers and bad actors an easier route for collecting confidential company information. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Internal software source code from more than 50 high-profile companies across tech, finance, retail, and other sectors has been leaked online.  Originally reported by the tech site Bleeping Computer, a Swiss developer named Tillie Kottmann was able to pull source code from the likes of Microsoft, Nintendo, Disney, Motorola, and others because of insecure DevOps applications that leave proprietary company information exposed. Kottmann posted the code on the online repository manager GitLab, which anyone can access, tagged under "exconfidential" and "Confidential & Proprietary." The developer posted a link to the online repository on their Twitter account. The leaked Nintendo code especially gained attention from the gaming world — it gives an inside look at the source code behind some of the company's most classic games, as Polygon reports. The leaked Nintendo code has been dubbed the "GigaLeak" online. Making the source code available for public viewing could allow cyber attackers to more easily scrounge for confidential company information, as security specialist Jake Moore told tech blog Tom's Guide. "Losing control of the source code on the internet is like handing the blueprints of a bank to robbers," Moore told the site. According to Bleeping Computer, Kottmann is responsive to requests from the companies to take down their source code. A leak that had previously revealed code from Daimler, the parent company to Mercedez-Benz, is no longer listed in the online repository. But some firms, according to the report, may not even notice that their source code has been published online. And even when they are made aware, they may not care — developers at one company simply wanted to know how Kottmann was able to pull the code collection off, per the report, and said to have "a lot of fun." Kottmann told Bleeping Computer that they attempt to remove hardcoded credentials, which are embedded credentials generally used to create backdoors, from the companies' source code before publishing it to avoid an even more robust security breach. "I try to do my best to prevent any major things resulting directly from my releases," the developer told the outlet. Kottmann's Twitter account bio in part reads "probably leaking your source code right now." The account's pinned tweet is a crowdsourcing post asking for "any confidentiality, documents, binaries or source code, which you think should be made available to the public..."  Read the full report on Bleeping Computer here.SEE ALSO: Some Garmin services are still offline several days after a giant cyber attack shut them down, the company said Join the conversation about this story » NOW WATCH: Why you don't see brilliantly blue fireworks
