Kerrianne Covell, Mink (Middlesbrough Live)

Kerriane Covell

Will she? Won't she?. Boro's own diva-in-the-making left fans on tenterhooks right until the last minute whether she would make what turned out to be a huge coup for Mink.

Now call me an old cynic but I think X Factor from judges houses onwards is somewhat scripted.

Like WWF but for all the family so it remains to be seen whether we'll ever get to see Kerrianne again in such intimate surroundings as Mr Cowell hasn't been returning my calls.

Al Forno's, Middlesbrough

Written by
Al Forno, Middlesbrough

I wasn't sure whether I could be bothered to write another Italian restaurant review but Al Forno is worth a mention particularly as it has recently opened the new Bar Al Forno in Darlington and they do make a formidable bolognese but more of that later.

The Middlesbrough site is ideally situated near the corner of Southfield and Linthorpe Roads and it's a big, friendly, spacious place where so many Italians are cramped and intense.

Arriving at 6pm we have the run of the happy hour and the full menu so are spoilt for choice.

Al Forno offers a mix of restaurant staples alongside a selection of their own signature dishes.

    A dark strange tale set in the victorian era, which tells the story of the events leading up to the building of the transporter bridge. One posh outsider falls saleep on the eve of its birthday and the ghosts of that time re inhabit the town. It is a story of power, drugs, sex, money and politics, as the ghosts of that time re inhabbit the town on the eve of the anniversary and events are replayed. This controversial film was commissioned by Discover Middlesbrough and Middlesbrough Council and had its Premiere on Sept 19th 2011 in Middlesbrough at the Constantine Cinema. It is partly a work of fiction but is based onthe true events. Directed by the Award Winning Director Jay Tee (Jonathan Thompson) and the Makers of Cold up North.
