Trending from the Weekend:

Everyone's chatting about this GAS moment from Robot Wars last night...when a grown man STORMED off the set because his team lost to a group of kids. So the new series kicked off on BBC 2 last night, hosted by Angela Scanlon and Dara O'Brian and in a bit of a twist Team Behemoth (robot regulars, have been on the show since 1998) had to take on Team Cherub, a bunch of kids.

There was no decisive winner, so it had to go to a judge's decision. They went with Team Cherub and the captain of Team Behemoth was BULLING! The rage is captured here is this gif:
