After seven weeks of auditions it's time for the remaining acts to face the battle rounds.
Back and now classier than ever, we are kindly reminded that what we are about to see might have been 'blinged' up for our entertainment.
Before I was involved with filming I always assumed that it would be a simple one shot wonder and voila! When you see food prepared on the screen it's really easy to forget the logistics behind filming food - I've since learnt that there's a lot of planning and thought before the shoot and a lot of preparation before each shot.
Sitting down to watch BBC3's Extreme Beauty Queens I think it's fair to say my initial reaction- stunned with wide open mouth for one hour- was probably a reflection of those held by the thousands of viewers that tuned in.
There was a bit a controversy on Dancing on Ice this week - I was accused of giving the judges a one finger salute at the beginning of my performance. But it turned out after a few check backs from everyone including myself that I was innocent! Thank God.
The thing about these shows is that they become hugely addictive for those competing. It's great fun doing a bit of dress-up on a Sunday night, getting your spray tan and being taught to do some pretty dangerous lifts and jumps every week.
So Jim Davidson has apparently won Celebrity Big Brother and the nation is split. There are those who believe he is a racist, misogynistic wife-beater who should never have been allowed back on TV, others who see him as a changed man who should be given another chance and some, probably the majority of the CBB audience, who just see him as a middle-aged comedian.
First up was Jamie Johnson, who had a very powerful soulful voice. But, it was a grower and I didn't turn my chair until the very end of his performance. Not one for my team though. Three coaches wanted Jamie and he joins Team Kylie. For the record, I didn't think you sounded like a girl Jamie.
We are lucky as women that in this day and age it isn't as hard as it used to be to make a strong stand in business and high posts... With regards to Luisa, some would say that she uses the title of businesswoman to be taken seriously but use still her sexuality to become popular. Is this really the right way to go?
Oh Dappy, Dappy, Dappy. There was nothing more painful than watching the ridiculous hat wearing ex-N-Dubz star throwing his dummy out of the pram because he found out a girl had dared to have sex with more than one man. And I had to watch Lee Ryan pole dance. Sober. Thanks Dry January.
In this week's episode Louise's younger brother Sam gave me a little surprise. Yep, a 'Frantastic' mixtape with his naked body on the front of it. Wow. I mean, wow. Unfortunately for Sam I had already worked out that it was better for us to remain friends, but was I going to return his little gift? Hell, no!
Binky and I have moved in together and it's been amazing. We have a lot of fun... too much fun. Admittedly, I was a little surprised by Alex wondering around in extremely skimpy boxers, but there has been no awkwardness since Alex has learned to wear trousers around the house.
Natalie Gumede is a good friend of mine. In recent months, I've seen a lot of stories about her in the press... On many of these occasions I have wanted to defend Natalie from these insane stories, but I have stopped myself for two reasons...
The latest series of I'm a Celebrity lollops on, and beaming manchild Joey Essex seems to have won not only the public vote, but the affections of the press.
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!
This week the acts are laid bare, no backing tracks and nowhere to hide. Just the power of a thirty piece big band for company. And how impressive th...
