Happy Christmas!

Tris Cotterill | 16:17 UK time, Saturday, 25 December 2010

Joyeux Noel, Fröhliche Weihnachten, Nadolig Llawen etc... Whatever you are doing this year Merry Christmas from everyone at Good News. We have a special show tonight at 11:30pm on BBC Three with some of the best bits of the series and loads of unseen extras. This is Russell's Christmas message... Enjoy!

How ill is that pigeon?

Tris Cotterill | 12:10 UK time, Wednesday, 22 December 2010

Hope you have all been enjoying the Good News marathon on BBC Three this week? (series three is being repeated on BBC Three every night this week). As it is pretty much the end of the series we thought we would show you some of the bits which didn't make the show. There will be more outtakes and general extra bits on the Good News Best Of on Christmas Day at 11:30pm. Anyway, these are some of our outtakes. Enjoy!

Questions from the queue part II

Tris Cotterill | 17:30 UK time, Tuesday, 14 December 2010

There is no Good News this week, but don't worry we still have our Best Of (with loads of new bits) going out on Christmas Day at 11:35pm on BBC Three, so we hope you'll be watching, turkey sandwich in hand.

Anyway, we got some of our audience members at the last record of the series to ask Russell questions which we got him to answer. Enjoy!

The warm stream...

Tris Cotterill | 18:31 UK time, Friday, 10 December 2010

It's the freakin' weekend everyone! Hope you all enjoyed the show last night? It was one of Team Good News favourites of the series. It also had two amazing sketches which Russ really enjoyed doing for Britain's Got Lepers and the quite gross P-Plan. Anyway, this is Russ talking about filming them. Enjoy!

I can't believe I am writing this but is it show 8 tonight, wow, this series has gone really fast.

Anyway, I could tell you about the show tonight but it is probably better I just show you instead, so here you go.... Enjoy!

REMEMBER Next Thursday at 10:30pm you get a chance to watch Russell's live stand-up show Dingledodies which is awesome AND we still have more Good News - a special Best Bits show (with loads of new things you haven't seen yet) will be on over Christmas.

Caption away...

Tris Cotterill | 13:37 UK time, Wednesday, 8 December 2010

Last night we recorded show 8 which was our last day in the studio this year! We still have two shows left in the series, one will go out as normal this Thursday at 10:30pm on BBC Three and a special best of (with new extra bits) will go out over Christmas.

Anyway, throughout the series you have done an amazing job suggesting captions for photos from the show so we thought we would give you another one. No prize I am afraid but it's the taking part that counts anyway isn't it? (yes - I know a prize would be better really).

Caption away!!!

Suggest your caption for a shot from Episode 8 of Good News

Russ against the clock

Tris Cotterill | 16:47 UK time, Wednesday, 1 December 2010

It's December, pinch, punch and all that...

We recorded show 7 of the series last night. Thanks to everyone in the audience who braved the snow and made it to the studio, it was a great show so roll on tomorrow night...

Cheers for all the questions you have been sending in, you gave us a bit of an idea... This is Russ trying to answer as many questions as possible in 60 seconds while taking a break from writing.
