Christmas Is Coming

I’m really looking forward to Christmas and the kids are so excited.

The younger two keep running late for school because they’re going round the house trying to find the Elf On The Shelf!

I never have any idea where it is and always have to ask Emily – I mean Santa!

I must admit there’s nothing on my Christmas list this year. Anything I really want I just buy for myself because I don’t want the family spending money on me.

Princess keeps asking what she can get me and I told her at this time of year all I really want is some chocolate or pick‘n’mix.

Before I can switch off for Christmas, I have two really big things coming up with work.

At the time of writing this, I’m about to join my good friend Gary Barlow on stage in Manchester.

He’s an old friend and to share the stage with him in front of his hometown crowd is pretty incredible.

I’ve known Gary since the mid 90s and, after I joined him on his crooner sessions during lockdown, we’ve kept in touch and even written some songs together.

Gary keeps encouraging me to bring out a new album and I will, but I guess I’m focusing on Junior’s music first. He’s got some great songs to come.

I then fly to Puerto Rico for four days to host Miss World 2021, which is celebrating its 70th anniversary.

Hosting Miss World was an honour in 2019 and to be asked back again is wonderful. We’ll be live across the world on 16 December.

I’ve always wanted to visit Puerto Rico so I can’t wait. Presenting is something I love, as well as music, theatre and film, and I’m grateful I get to do all these things.

Weight To Go, Arg!

James Argent is looking great following his 11st weight loss.

I know he tried many different things to lose weight and it was a real battle. But now he’s done it, he looks amazing. Keep going, mate!

A lot of people have difficult relationships with food. For some, it’s an emotional attachment and it’s very hard to change that mindset.

Party Politics

The government has been criticised after a video emerged of Downing Street staff joking about holding a party that reportedly happened during last December’s lockdown.

It feels like they’re making a mockery of the British public by issuing Covid rules to us and then ignoring them themselves.

And the fact that it supposedly happened during a time when so many people were struggling and losing family members is awful.

I’m sure many found the way it was joked about quite offensive.

It’s just going to make people more resistant to following restrictions because they’ll think, “If they’re not following them, why should I?”

But we can’t ignore the fact that we do need to protect the vulnerable and the NHS needs our support, regardless of what example is being set.
