After only one season behind the mic, former NFL quarterback Drew Brees is weighing his options for the near future and is thinking about putting his broadcast career on hold and going back to the NFL. Brees spent the past season as an NBC Sports analyst, but NBC is less than thrilled with his first year, according to some reports. According to the New York Post , “NBC soured on Brees’ potential after originally believing he could develop into the heir apparent to Cris Collinsworth on Sunday Night Football games.” Indeed, Brees’ performance during the Bengals-Raiders playoff game was panned.

Stunning dishes, a gruelling competition and witty John Torode and Gregg Wallace - MasterChef has all the ingredients for a recipe to success. While sitting on our sofas at home, it's easy to end up starving as people whip up delicious meals in what seems like seconds. But is the MasterChef experience all it seems? Former MasterChef semi-finalist Liz Cottam , who appeared in series 12, has shared how the show really works. She now runs three restaurants with a 67-strong team and predicted revenues of £3.2M for the year ahead.
