I am moving flat. This has led to a massive upheaval, mostly in my cupboards. My cupboards contain what must be the world's largest collection of things that no-one could ever want or need. There are things in there that make a video cassette player look useful. And there's a video cassette player.
While in theory, it sounds like a dream job for any gay journo to spend a week locked in the studio as a parade of ripped, chiseled, gay and straight bodies trail in and out, the reality is that it's bloody hard work. No, honestly.
The last few weeks have gone by in a blur, and like most people, I can't believe it's almost Christmas again already. Makes me want to reenact a scene from Will Ferrell in ELF, the best Christmas movie ever! Buddy: I'm singing! I'm in a store and I'm singing! I'm in a store, AND I'M SINGIIIIING! I was so excited when the Christmas lights went up on Oxford Street. But my god the amount of people that are doing their Christmas shopping is immense. I can see why - the stores you guys have over here are pretty awesome. I'm tempted to muck in and get shopping as well!
On pulling up outside the door, I noted that the banks of paparazzi were already gathered and clicking away at VIP guests entering. First came the leggy, willowy lovely Laura Bailey in her red coat and flowing ponytail. Then we had a bevvy of lovely ladies from Pixie Lott to Poppy Delevigne and the ultimate diva-Joan Collins!
Last year, filming-schedule changes, revised promotional commitments, Hurricane Sandy and laryngitis cost us eight celebrities in the run-up to awards. The truth is, you can never be 100% sure someone will turn up until you see their designer shoes step out of their car on to the red carpet.
Lazy, social media obsessed and filled with a sense of entitlement. The all too familiar criticisms that levelled at Generation Yers today. Like millions of others born between the early 1980s until the early 2000s, I'm part of a group that everybody seems to have an opinion on. We're a group who can't focus on anything, a 'boomerang generation' who run back to their parents every time they face a problem and expect a glittering career to be handed to them on a plate.
Here we are again - glued to our TV screens, revelling in the hilarious and at times toe-curling jungle trials of ITV's I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! This year's series is captivating the nation's imagination more than ever with the opening episode bursting back onto our screens with a record-breaking audience of 12million viewers. The show's popularity is all the more impactful because behind the fun and frolics in the jungle, the celebrities have united to support an important cause - Malaria No More UK.
Born in LA, Brix tells quite the tale of an adventurous youth; from edgy punk musician to stylist extraordinaire. Sat with a huge bottle of what can only be described as 'Detox Juice', she comes across as a centred, caring individual who exudes edgy glamour.
In a bid for attention, female celebrities from Beyonce to Miley Cyrus have taken the feminist movement backwards by years. By wearing next to nothing in their music videos they are sending the wrong message to young girls and boys.
My heart went out for our two-time Olympic gold medal winning heroine Rebecca Adlington last night on ITV's I'm A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here. It was only last year that we hosted the greatest sporting event in the world and our Olympians were given their rightful place as national treasures in the press.
Here's the thing... most people who scoff at Hull, have never even been. And I guess that's the way life works, if a bandwagon rumbles past us, we sometimes can't help but jump on it. If someone, or some place strives, we can't seem to wait to knock them.
Do What U Want is the second single from Lady Gaga's latest album, ARTPOP, and features R. Kelly on backing vocals - a man so sleazy, he makes Robin Thicke look like Aled Jones.
Having taken part in Dragon's Den this series and working closely with UK Trade and Investment, I'm now even more aware of the importance of funding and supporting the great ideas of future business leaders. What's particularly close to my heart is nurturing and growing the ideas of young people domestically and into international markets.
There's all these guides now such as 1001 places you must visit before you die, 1001 books you must read before you die, 1001 movies you must see before you die. Stuff 'em. If you're feeling more Slacker than Activist, see if you can't amble slowly towards one of these chillout zones, but if you're finding it a struggle - have a lie down.
I love the concept of 'Pay It Forward'. The idea that you can pass on an opportunity and a good deed to someone deserving or help someone in life fulfil a dream is a wonderful concept, embraced not only in the USA but over 100 countries around the world and I strongly believe that we should make it more prevalent in the UK. With life getting busier, more hectic and stressful for all of us it's easy to forget acts of kindness and helping others, even the smallest good deeds can make the biggest of differences.
The people of the North East do not need Alcohol Awareness. Or drinking statistics. Or minimum unit pricing. Or weaker alcohol strengths. We do not need a gaggle of experts to discuss what is best for us. We do not need yet more segregation. To be told alcoholism is a disease, a mental illness.
