Harry Enfield , Dylan Jones - - Vauxhall Motors has today launched 'Great British Legends', a new series profiling Britain's best-loved figures from the worlds of comedy, sport and entertainment. In the first installment, comedian Harry Enfield shows GQ Editor Dylan Jones around the city of York from behind the wheel of the new Brit-built Vauxhall Astra. Vauxhall's 'Great British Legends' series, takes celebrities back to their roots, looks at their early influences and aims to find what makes a Great British legend. The videos celebrate the iconic Astra being a fixture on our roads for over 35 years, making it a true legend of British car manufacturing. Harry Enfield's involvement in the Great British Legends series comes as a new survey* from Vauxhall reveals the star as one of the top legendary comedy figures in Britain today. Harry's obnoxious character "Kevin The Teenager" has also featured in the top 10 UK comedy characters from the past 20 years. "All these years on, it's an honour to be even considered a 'Great British Legend' and take a road-trip around York to reminisce about my time at university." Harry Enfield commented. "It's where I discovered I could actually be funny for a living and met some inspirational people along the way that played a big role in kick-starting my career." Dylan Jones said, "As a comedy hero and legend himself, Harry Enfield was the perfect British figure to launch the series. Harry Enfield left York and went on to create characters and catchphrases that have become engrained in British culture, including Kevin the teenager, Wayne and Waynetta and the Scousers, making him a true British Legend synonymous with households up and down the country." He continued, "One in four Brits has either owned or driven an Vauxhall Astra at some point in their lives, so it's only right that we pay tribute to its legendary status, along with other living legends - York, United Kingdom - Friday 29th January 2016

The Bad Education Movie Trailer


The end of GCSE exams is approaching and, while many students around the country will be preparing for a messy weekend in Magaluf, it's a guarantee that none of their antics will match those of Mr. Wickers and his troublemaking class. He's always been a terrible teacher, but for Alfie Wickers, a true adventure is needed to seal his unbreakable bond with his tearaway pupils - and so it's off to Cornwall they go, to the chagrin of the kids' worried mothers. It might seem like an innocent school trip, but they're forced to prepare themselves for some unexpected incidents involving seriously menacing farmer locals, as well as Alfie's ruthless old school chums. It gets even worse when the group go missing, and wind up wanted by police and all over the news. But it still could go down as the best school trip ever.
