The flora on the isolated high African mountains or ‘sky islands’ is remarkable for its peculiar adaptations, local endemism and striking biogeographical connections to remote parts of the world. Ages of the plant lineages and the timing of their radiations have frequently been debated but remain contentious as there are few estimates based on explicit models and fossil-calibrated molecular clocks. We used the plastid region maturaseK matK and a Caryophylloflora paleogenica fossil to infer the age of the genus Lychnis, and constructed a data set of three plastid matK; a ribosomal protein S16 rps16 ; and an intergenic spacer psbE-petL and two nuclear internal transcribed spacer ITS and a region spanning exon in the second largest subunit of RNA polymerase II RPB2 loci for joint estimation of the species tree and divergence time of the African representatives. The time of divergence of the African high-altitude Lychnis was placed in the late Miocene to early Pliocene. A single speciation event was inferred in the early Pliocene; subsequent speciation took place sporadically from the late Pliocene to the middle Pleistocene. We provide further support for a Eurasian origin of the African ‘sky islands’ floral elements, which seem to have been recruited via dispersals at different times: some old, as in Lychnis, and others very recent. We show that dispersal and diversification within Africa play an important role in shaping these isolated plant communities. Keywords: African mountains; Lychnis; diversification; molecular dating; origin of high-altitude lineages. Abstract The flora on the isolated high African mountains or ‘sky islands’ is remarkable for its peculiar adaptations, local endemism and striking biogeographical connections to remote parts of the world.

Chris Moyles and Stacey Solomon have signed up to host Sky Living’s new dating show. The Love Machine, filmed in front of a studio audience.
Essentially the anti-Love Island, the new series introduces us to a new batch of young, attractive contestants who are all single and, crucially, ready to mingle. And if any of them break any of the rules, money will be immediately removed from the overall prize fund. Brutal, right? That part only comes when they get engaged!!! It all seemed like a bit of a laugh at the time, but in hindsight, a reality series based entirely around whether you can guess if a group of men are gay or straight is guilty of perpetuating stereotypes at best and outright homophobic at worst.
Playing It Straight ran for one series in with June Sarpong as host, only to be revived a full seven years later, this time with Jameela Jamil at the helm. The premise of this completely ridiculous show was that a group of women were flown to the UK, where they competed for the affections of a man they were led to believe was Prince Harry. As you can see, the man in question was not Prince Harry, but a rather dubious lookalike.

Temptation Island is coming to the UK – and it’s basically an exotic version of Love Island
Everything you need to know about the hottest new reality TV dating show. It has all the elements that the ITV2 show offers – a fire pit, hot tub, communal bedroom, hideaway-style room, and a group of young, toned, tanned singletons who are looking for love. The Netflix series follows the Instagram-ready singletons, who hail from across the globe, and get dropped into a paradise resort where they attempt to gain deeper emotional connections with potential partners, as opposed to having one night stands.
But the catch is: these hot and horny somethings have to abstain from any sexual shenanigans for their whole stay. In fact, they are so gobsmacked about the idea of not touching or being touched, the cast makes our Islanders look positively celibate.

Sky One dropped its original TV show Cobra just days ago, and people are already tipping the six-part series as one of the best shows of the year. The high-stakes crime drama deals with an unfolding national solar storm emergency that threatens to take down the national power grid and disrupt life as we know it. Speaking of the show, one Twitter user penned: ” Cobra is probably the most binge worthy TV programme I’ve seen since Homeland and the Wire.
I’ve got so sucked in by it, when I put the radio on in the car this morning I expected there to be an update on the crisis in the actual news IRL! A terrifying vision of why could be. Well done to all the production team, writers and also actors who have a sense of urgency and, sometimes despair which was very palpable. A story well told. We’re unsurprised at the reaction, as people loved Bodyguard and Cobra offers a glimpse inside the inner workings of the UK government.
If the solar disaster wasn’t enough to deal with though, viewers will see angry residents rising up against the government, whose crisis team COBRA is desperately trying to save society from collapse. When faced with this national emergency, we see the Prime Minister, played by Robert Carlyle, and Chief of Staff, played by Victoria Hamilton, forced to make impossible political decisions whilst dealing with their own messy personal lives.
