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...
Wounds were in the process of healing, but then Phoebe and Louise's late night escape rubbed salt into these wounds. I hoped the break would mend the damage within the girl group, but instead new bridges were built over the debris of others.
Honesty is the best policy. Isn't it? Although I finally realised my true feelings for Alex and was ready to lay my cards on the table... then Binky revealed the reality of what happened. Gutting? Sure. Embarassing? Very, but I will always have my friend's interests at heart. If it makes the both of them happy, it makes me happy.
Hannah Barratt took on a big Adele song and pulled it out of the bag. Fantastic vocal performance from a young starlet, destined to be a big success in the industry.
Last of the auditions tonight and the final Arena performances. They must have sent my audition letter to the wrong address. Ryan Mathie got the sh...
It came to my attention that a new show, Meet The Russians, is launching on Fox in late September. Understandably, as a Russian living in London, I am horrified.
I experienced first-hand the impact of poverty during my own childhood when my father was made bankrupt and the bailiffs came calling, and I wouldn't wish that situation on any child. At the moment, we are in danger of creating a generation of children living in a vicious circle of hardship and disadvantage, growing up in communities reeling from the double hit of the recession and public sector cuts... I am pledging to give more at a time when need has never been higher, and I'm urging everyone else to do the same.
Starting your own business is a personal journey you take that makes you question who you are and what you are doing it for. We all question out decisions and tend to overthink our intentions, but I believe that if you follow these five mantras, you can achieve great things for you and your business.
Deano, Deano, Deano, oh sorry, you caught me daydreaming about singing at Wembley Arena. Right, back to audition show Four. White van driver Shelley Smith was up first, good start, not my cup of tea, but I can't knock the vocal ability and the energy. An audience pleaser. See you at bootcamp.
Well done to the producers for giving us a fantastic opening weekend of the X Factor. It was entertaining, the judges were fun and most of all the talent was smoking. Oh, and not bad ratings either. So after last week's immense talent, whose up first...
For those of you unfamiliar with the name Luisa Zissman, you are unfamiliar with the current British celebrity hierarchy. Zissman has entered the party with immediate B/C list status. Her role as runner up on The Apprentice has effectively launched her 'it' girl status. Hardly a day passes without an update on her life by the British tabloids. And I for one- am pleased.
