Skins on C4

Monday, January 31st at 9:30pm

Skins, the sex, drink and drug-fuelled drama that depicts teenage life as it often is, rather than how parents imagine it, is saying goodbye to the second generation of a group of spliff toting British teenagers when the series concludes the encore screening of its fourth season on Monday, January 31st at 9:30pm on C4.

According to series creator Jamie Brittain, the series four finale will be an emotional roller coaster for the series’ young characters. “It’s all about goodbyes,” Brittain explains. 

“It’s about saying goodbye to your friends and the things you’re going to leave behind. It’s sort of a poem about the end of teenage life. It’s a very pretty and beautiful episode.”

Unlike previous episodes the finale will not have a character focus but will instead conclude each teen’s story. 

“The finale takes place at Naomi’s house and is set over two days,” Brittain continues. “Throughout the episode, a series of showdowns will ensue between the characters,” he adds.

As well as this, the episode will also see Klariza Clayton returning to the series as Freddie’s sister Karen. 

Could Clayton become the central character for Skins’ fifth season? Only time will tell. But in the mean time make sure not to miss the fourth season conclusion when Skins says goodbye its second generation on Monday, January 31st at 9:30pm on C4.

They have danced their little butts off for the last nine weeks, but now the time has come to name the $100,000 winner in this week’s Step It Up & Dance season finale, screening on Wednesday, January 12th at 7:30pm on C4. 

When the creators of Project Runway and Top Chef approached Elizabeth Berkley about hosting a new reality dance series called Step It Up & Dance, the actress immediately said “yes”.

“It was a no-brainer,” Berkley explains. “[Production company] Magical Elves has this incredible winning formula, so I knew it would be good quality.”

“And when you have the level of talent involved, it’s amazing to see how people, literally – and I hate to use the pun – step it up.”

Over its season Step It Up & Dance has followed 12 dancers competing in a variety of dance styles, including Latin and hip hop. 

Each week the weakest dancer was eliminated from the competition, until only three dancers remain for this week’s final call-back, during which $100,000 will go to the winner.

“No one can hand you anything as a dancer,” Berkley explains about the series’ grand prize. “You have to earn it, that’s why Step It Up & Dance has been such an fun show to watch.”

“In an age where everyone wants to be famous for nothing, this show is refreshing because as a dancer, you can’t just get by. It’s about hard work.”
