Sky TV have revealed that with people staying home during the coronavirus pandemic, Brits are now consuming, on average, 72 more minutes of TV than usual each day. Amongst this increase is what's being called the ''boxset effect,'' with over 100m downloads of TV shows both new and old.

 
Viewing figures are also up on Sky Movies. Rocketman and The Secret Life of Pets have been the two most watched films throughout the past few months.
 
The principal dancer at the Royal Ballet, Lauren Cuthbertson, meanwhile, has been talking about the man behind Rocketman
 
She told the Evening Standard: ''I'm listening to Elton John big time right now. It's amazing to revisit the real icons of music at this time. Music makes the world a better place and is such a genius.''
 
She's also fond of Edward Elgar. After recently portraying Jacqueline du Pre in Cathy Marston's ballet The Cellist, she can't get some of his melodies out of her head.
