Things we like: A front-page marriage proposal

The Observer Magazine gave away its front cover last Sunday to a reader, James Greig, who was photographed down on one knee with an engagement ring for his girlfriend, next to the headline: "Will you marry me, Katie?" The magazine said the proposal is a first for a national newspaper. Katie said "yes" to the Valentine’s Day proposal.

New entertainment on ITV

Rickie Haywood Williams and Melvin Odoom, the Kiss FM presenters, will host a new weekend programme called Bang On The Money on ITV in the spring.

After years of entertaining Kiss’ breakfast listeners and appearing on BBC Three and MTV, the duo finally get to front a primetime show.

Apple’s first TV series

Dr Dre will star in the first drama series for Apple in a show called Vital Signs, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The programme is described as a "dark semi-autobiographical drama". Dr Dre joined Apple in 2014 when the tech giant bought his headphones and speakers business, Beats by Dre. Reports say the show will be distributed through Apple Music, the streaming service, and it is unclear whether it will be available on Apple TV. Watch out, Netflix.

His outburst followed a discussion about the under-representation of young black men and the grime genre in the 2016 Brit Awards shortlist.
