Nick has co-written and produced his first movie Golden Years, with an all star British cast that lured Born Free actress Virginia McKenna out of retirement.
“Fate, the pensions crisis and a steadfast refusal to accept the injustice of old age have contrived to force law abiding, retired couple, Arthur and Martha Goode into a life of crime. Refusing to take the loss of their pensions lying down and to fade away into their declining years, Arthur and Martha decide to fight back. They decide to take back what was theirs in the first place. They decide to start robbing banks.”
Starring Bernard Hill, Virginia McKenna, Simon Callow, Sue Johnston, Phil Davies, Alun Armstrong, Una Stubbs and Brad Moore. In cinemas from April 29th.

Dressed in jeans and workmens’ helmets, Princes William and Harry showed off their DIY skills today, helping to turn a derelict street into homes for ex-service personnel.
Fifth in line to the throne Harry, 31, still sporting his much-admired beard and wearing grey hoodie and T-shirt, rolled up his sleeves as he helped to lay a patio, while his elder brother, more formally dressed in a jumper and shirt, helped to paint a wall.
As usual there was more than a little competition between the two men. After being briefed about their tasks, William raised an eyebrow at his younger brother and said challengingly: ‘Game on.’
Are you a military veteran with physical or psychological challenges looking for an affordable home to rent in Manchester?
Do you want to buy at a discounted price or on a shared equity scheme?
Would you like to move into a welcoming and specially adapted street for military veteran individuals and families?
Haig Housing and Walking with the Wounded are working with the BBC’s DIY SOS: The Big Build on an epic project to renovate an entire road in Manchester – complete with specially adapted and bespoke homes – and a support Centre right on the street.
DIY SOS head up to Manchester this week to start work on the biggest build ever attempted by the show. Works starts on TWO streets that are having empty homes refurbished for former army service men and women to live in with their families.
Nick and the team still urgently require more trades to help them take on the epic build!
Nick’s new BBC One Saturday night quiz show will air Saturday 25th July. 5 Star Family Reunion is a heart felt quiz which will see a UK family and their long-lost overseas relatives working together, to win a once-in-a-lifetime reunion in a five-star location.
Overseas, the family must answer questions to win as much time as they possibly can for the family in studio. That’s because the four in studio will individually face questions against the show’s high-tension timer in a bid to put money in the bank and bring everyone together. If they can prove themselves under pressure, then they are in for the reunion of a lifetime!
See below for the official trail for 5 Star Family Reunion.
