Emmerdale loses another cast member

 In a stunning turn of events that surprises absolutely no-one, itv.com have announced that James Sutton (Ryan) is leaving Emmerdale.

So long Sutton
We are sorry to announce that James Sutton, who plays Ryan Lamb, will be saying farewell to the Dales this Spring.

It's been an explosive couple of years for James, as Ryan has dealt with murder, incest and not forgetting his dramatic spell in prison for a crime he didn't commit.

James says "I've massively enjoyed the last two years playing Ryan and been blessed to have worked with a group of such talented and supportive actors."

"I feel that Ryan's storylines have drawn to a natural conclusion and although I’ll be sad to say goodbye, I’m excited about what the future holds."

"Having trained in theatre I’m looking forward to getting back to my roots and exploring new opportunities."

Executive producer Steve November says, "James has been a much valued member of the cast and we wish him all the best for the future."

I'm torn between a reaction of "Aw crap" and "not remotely surprised" - James has been dreadfully underused, even his big storyline, "a dramatic spell in prison for a crime he didn't commit" wound up being more about Natasha, Nathan and Maisie than it did about Ryan! And with Kim Thomson (who plays his mother, Faye) announcing her departure a couple of weeks ago, the writing was very much on the wall. 

But its just such a flipping waste!

My iPhone = Lazarus

Have just spent a very nervous couple of hours restoring my iPhone 3G after it completely died on me earlier on this afternoon - restore involved going back to the default factory settings and then re-installing all my info from the backup, which thankfully I'd only done a week ago, so I didn't loose much info.

But still, am going to go and vomit and then lie down in a dark room somewhere.

Further trauma may come though as I had to download the newest software update, which apparently fecks up the running of the 3G....

Am planning on updating, just have to get my dad to come with me as the phone is in his name!! And find out if there is any way I can do that and keep my number, which o2 girl didn't think I could when I asked - after 12 odd years, I want to keep mine, can't be doing with learning a new one!!
