Johnny Depp: I'd like to stop living like a fugitive but I love acting too much

Perhaps this time Johnny Depp has discovered his authentic moviealter ego.

For years, he has thrived on playing a variety of oddballs from Captain Jack in Pirates Of The Caribbean to Willy Wonka. In his new film, Mortdecai, Johnny is following in the footsteps of British comic legend Peter Sellers with his performance as Charlie Mortdecai.

He’s a brash, blundering aristocrat cum art dealer on the trail of a stolen painting believed to contain the code to a bank vault filled with looted Nazi gold.

Mortdecai review: Johnny Depp on fine form but comic caper fails to deliver expected laughs

Johnny Depp’s latest comedy caper has him donning a rakish moustache and a adopting a plummy accent to play roguish British aristocrat and dodgy art dealer Charlie Mortdecai.

Charged with retrieving a stolen Goya masterpiece, Charlie and his loyal manservant Jock Strapp (Paul Bettany) pursue the painting across the globe while attempting to stay one step ahead of MI5’s Alistair Maitland (Ewan McGregor) and various baddies.

Depp is on fine comic form as the cowardly yet charismatic charmer and there’s some delicious dialogue, while Gwyneth P altrow is along for the ride as Mortdecai’s wife Johanna.

Tracy Barlow an actual hero? Did Steve McDonald crash that minibus into a parallel universe or what?

While others are quick to blame Steve for the smash, at least Michelle finally knows why he’s been acting like such a weirdo.

Not that this will be of any comfort to Sinead and her family as she’s rushed into theatre for an emergency operation on her back.

EastEnders, BBC1, 8pm

Chalk this one up as Mick Carter’s worst birthday ever. It’s still Monday in EastEnders after an exhausting week for the rest of us where no one in the Carter clan has escaped unscathed.

From Neil McLeman in Melbourne

Now the Scot will face the No 10 seed from Bulgaria, who is Maria Sharapova"s boyfriend and the player who ended his reign as Wimbledon champion with a brutal three-set victory in the quarter-finals in SW19 last summer.

Matt Dawson column: England MUST start with Jonathan Joseph against Wales in the Six Nations opener

Watching Jonathan Joseph run riot last Sunday made me instantly feel better about England’s midfield headache.

Joseph has spent two and a half years since his England debut on the fringes of selection. But he can be marginalised no more. Not after what he did to Toulouse.

His running, his carrying, his vision, his ambition – against the most successful club in European Cup history – was sensational.

No question about it at all in my mind, he starts the Six Nations against Wales in two weeks.

The Graham Norton Show: McBusted's Dougie is an unlikely David Attenborough fan

Dougie from McBusted outs himself as one of Sir David Attenborough’s biggest (and not at all stalkerish) fans when they meet up on Graham’s sofa this week.

“When I was looking to move and didn’t know where, I just Googled where you live because I thought it must be the most serene place ever,” he tells Sir David.

“So I live up the road from you. I pass your house on the way to the dry cleaners.” It’s the kind of bizarre revelation you tend to get on this show which throws all kinds of celebrities into the mix.

Kingsman: The Secret Service is a very British spy caper and a whole lot of fun

Murder, mayhem and madness are unleashed in this absurdly enjoyable spy caper that David Niven or perhaps Patrick Macnee might have made in the 1960s.

Only this time we have exploding heads, potty-mouthed language and – towards the end – a certain X-rated gag about the queen of Sweden’s bottom that would have made everyone at Ealing choke on their Earl Grey.

With Niven unavailable, it’s down to Colin Firth to save the world as Harry Hart, a crack member of the ultra-secret Kingsman espionage ring, headed by Michael Caine.

Customer ordered to pay £500 restaurant bill – TWO YEARS after doing a runner

A customer has been ordered to pay more than £500 for his slap-up meal - two years after he did a runner.

William Potter and three pals dined out on scallops, beef fillet, lamb shanks and cod.

Then they ordered desserts and helped to wash the whole lot down with two bottles of Dom Perignon champagne - at £148.40 a bottle.

An Italian pinot grigio at £23.50 and two bottles of £35 rioja were also selected from the wine list to help the evening go with a swing.

CascadeGuilty: Billy Potter admitted not paying the bill at magistrate"s court
