I Had some very exciting book news last Friday – I wish I could tell you about it but I’m not allowed… but make sure you watch this space!
I wanted to say a massive thank you to all those who took part in my £5 a follow campaign, I decided to get involved and do a special donation for comic relief and what a donation it was – so thank you to all 1892 followers – and so I topped it up with my own personal donation. Let’s say thank you to David Tennant for such a powerful appeal that made me jump to my feet and do something. Also many thanks to all those who bid on my twitrelief auction, I hope you like the prize!
Over this last week I have been in lots of meetings and doing masses of press for my new projects! Earlier this week, t I had just finished a meeting at the BBC and as I was leaving a huge school trip bombarded me for photographs and autographs they were so adorable and very sweet.
Had lunch with Debbie Moore at the Ivy, all we do is sit and gossip and laugh over the early days of Pineapple, such great memories. Speaking of catching up I held a great big family brunch on the weekend, it was my sister AND brother in law’s birthdays and all the extended family came for breakfast. It was one of those rare opportunities that I love so much to spend time with everyone and see all my nieces, nephews and their children.I’m very excited about the new SYTYCD series starting this Saturday, so make sure you tune in! Here’s the webpage for details http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00tqp9yYesterday was SUPER busy, I met with the people who help make my clothes and showed them all my ideas and designs, it went really well and I can’t wait for my new season’s collection to come out! Then I went straight off to film the Alan Titchmarsh show (which goes out on April 8th!) with Vincent and Flavia to talk about their show, Midnight Tango, which I’m co-producing – It opens in Jersey on the 2nd April and then is off on tour to somewhere near you so keep you eyes peeled for details and I’ll post some up in my next entry. Once I’d finished that it was upstairs to film a good luck message for Blue who are our bold and beautiful Eurovision entry. I love the song ‘I Can’, and they’ll be performing it live out there so I want to again wish them all the luck in the world! I had a fascinating meeting on Tuesday with Wayne Mc Gregor the amazing resident Choreographer at the Royal Opera House. Listening to him talk about choreography is riveting ! It was also great to see the brilliant Kate Prince and Chantal Spiteri from Zoonation.Tonight I’m going to the opening of the Umbrellas of Cherbourg at the Gielgud Theatre, my great friend Etta Murfitt choreographed it and I can’t wait to see her and her work, having known her since she was a child! More about this and who was there in my next blog,
Don’t miss my next twitter competition which is on until 2pm tomorrow, where the penultimate set of my children’s books and personalised signed photo will be up for grabs…
Until then stay happy and healthy, and much love to all!
