If the first series of The Voice on BBC1 was an actual voice it would have probably begun in a rich persuasive baritone before spluttering out into the consumptive wheeze of a Victorian whelp pleading for more alms.
Sitting here, as I am, wearing a Union Jack onesie eating luke warm noodles in hotel room on an industrial estate outside Oxford, you'd be forgiven for thinking that I was beginning to finally unravel. But you'd be wrong dear Huffington Post reader, very wrong.
Promo is a funny old game, you do feel slightly odd and awkward talking about yourself all the time - I guess that's just a British trait though! But you know you need to push your album so you sit there, answer the questions and try and keep the enthusiasm levels up! It's fun too and you get to meet and catch up with all the journalists who are, for the most part, really supportive. The past week has been super busy though and I've been up and down the country doing promo. Here is just a little snapshot...
With Tom Daley as the face of Splash!, we are perilously close to a terrain where our Olympic generation is immersed with second-rate celebrities. Louis Smith recently won Strictly Come Dancing, and whilst I accept the importance for these athletes to cash in whilst they can, I cannot help but feel disappointed.
It appears that the days of meeting and dating are gone and the generation of dating auditions has begun, well it probably begun quite some time ago to be fair. The internet does play a large part in this with the huge rise in internet dating websites that now means it's easier to find a date.
It's been a whirlwind couple of weeks. To kick things off, we held the Inspirational Women of the Year Awards gala in association with the Daily Mail and supported by Sanctuary Spa.
I have a complete inability to gyrate my booty in any manner without inducing hoots of laughter from those around me.
While Pendleton's stock on the track has been evident for years, less well known is the fact she's a devotee of high fashion and a staunch fan of Jimmy Choo shoes, Gucci heels and almost anything in Stella McCartney's range.
Another amazing week on the dance floor, but sadly saw the end of our favourite long legged diva, Jerry Hall.
We've heard enough love songs about relationships in our time. It's all 'baby', 'kiss my this' and 'touch my that'... 'ooh I'm so happy', 'now you're a twat'. Bloody hell... I'm even at it now. But what about all of those other people in our lives that might be worth a mention in song? Gecko are a band that generally like to steer clear of sounding like anyone else.
He was saved in this week's dance off against Johnny Ball by Craig, Darcey and Bruno and now lives to see another week on the Strictly dance floor. In this exclusive interview I catch up with the man we saw rocking Sixties florals and Jedward high quiffs to the max. He's one of the most lovable TV presenters around... it's Richard Arnold!
Well we weren't let down were we? The opening live shows of Strictly provided everything we could have asked for and more, the drama, the tears (thank you Victoria), the mood swings of Craig and - it's fair to say - a ridiculous number of 'yahs' courtesy of new judge Darcey Bussell.
Weeks of speculation over the celebrity line up has finally ended and the 14 stars are well into preparations for the opening night. The show may be on it's 10th series but the glitterball trophy remains one of the most desired prizes out there.
Over my years in the spotlight, I've often spoken openly about my experience with dementia - my fathered suffered with the disease during the later years of his life and for many years I worked to look after him before he entered a care home, when in need of more specialist treatment. I know first-hand how heart breaking and frightening it can be to go through the process of seeing an older relative is diagnosed with the condition.
I feel a bit grubby. I've just watched the actor Stephen Mangan murdering Who Know Where The Time Goes on SkyArts and I'm left wondering just what is this obsession with people doing things half cock?
So many significant events occurred last year that Billy Joel could probably rewrite the lyrics to We Didn't Start the Fire and it would still end up being longer than War and Peace and Stacey Solomon: My Story So Far put together. Even the normally calm world of showbiz wasn't spared a flood of stories, from The Only Way Is Essex winning a BAFTA to everyone from Jeremy Clarkson to Ryan Giggs taking out super-injuctions.
