Welcome to London Tonight Tonight.

This is the official website of London Tonight, on ITV1 in London and the South East every weeknight at 6pm.



Good Afternoon,

We've not one but two monkey based stories for you this afternoon, something that pleases Tamzin no end (she's a bit of a fan of primates)....First up there are some VERY happy Gorillas at London Zoo after they were shown their brand new multi-million pound pad. The glass enclosure's been designed to give them more freedom and maybe a little more romance. Keepers hope the new set-up will encourage a bit of gorilla loving....we'll let you know if it works !

Plus. Remember the amazing adventures of Bolivian squirrel monkey...Spongebob ? He was the endangered monkey STOLEN from Chessington World of Adventures in Surrey and later found playing with a bunch of kids in Brixton. Well today a man's been jailed for a year for that theft. 23 year old Marlon Brown, was attacked by Spongebob's cage-buddies when he broke in ... the blood he lost there helped convict him. As for Spongebob - he's now settled in Battersea Zoo munching on some celebratory bananas.

Simon Harris is on the trail of Japanese Knotweed....it covers 2% of the Olympic site and could cost tens of millions of pounds to get rid off. A big bill for a bit of gardening.

We've also got our third installment of Mike Pearce's special reports from The Falklands. Tonight he meets up with some ex-pat Londoners to find out what attracted them to the Islands.

And The Lord of the Rings: The Musical. It's a 3 hour epic but what's the betting middle-earth fans will be queueing round the block when it starts previewing in May. We've been granted a behind the scenes peak at the incredible stage set, the costumes and the elfish singing instructors.

It's all here and waiting for you at 6 - see you then

Alastair and Tamzin
