What a busy week! Back to school, twerking with Rylan and attending the ‘hottie’ awards…
Schoolâ€™s back! And Iâ€™ve been trying my hardest to get a gold star by helping my schoolteacher boyfriend spruce up his Year Six classroom. In an instant, my closest acquaintances became staple guns, glue and coloured paper. I helped put up wall displays, posters, and even erected a giant, green gazebo and filled it with books and cushions to create a reading jungle for the kids. If that doesn’t make me the teacherâ€™s pet, I don’t know what on earth will!
Witness the Fitness
Confession time: I have been a very naughty schoolgirl this weekâ€¦ I havenâ€™t hit the gym once! To make up for it, I did an organised Park Run. Park Run have weekly 5km timed runs around the world every Saturday and Sunday morning. â€˜Saturday and Sunday morning? That’s crazy!â€™ I hear you cry, Â and normally Iâ€™d agree but it was so much fun and better still, it’s free. To get your sweat on and find your local run visit parkrun.org.uk.
To boost my protein and energy levels I’m also downing Maxitone. It’s nutritious, delicious and, most importantly of all, it’s pretty and pink. Ta-da!
Celebrity Big Brother
Do you ever get that feeling that your life is flashing before your very eyes? One minute it was the launch of Big Brother and the next, we’ve less than a week to go until the finale of Celebrity BB. I want to scream ‘slow down!â€™ but it’s pointless (and also awkward. I found this out the hard way during BBBOTs rehearsals). Time really does fly when you’re having fun.
This week Carol McGiffin re-entered the CBB house after housemates thought that sheâ€™d actually been evicted. Oh, how wrong they were. Hearing the doorbell ring and McGiffin’s voice bellowing, “Surprise!” was like watching the “Here’s Jonny” scene from The Shining… Only it wasn’t Jonny it was Carolâ€¦ and it wasn’t scary either… so, err, nothing like the Shining. Still, you know what I mean. TV gold!
Meanwhile, on Bit On the Side, Rylan Clark and I mimicked Miley Cyrus’ twerk at the VMA’s. Contrary to popular belief, breaking out into song and dance during a live TV show is not a contractual obligation of ours. AlthoughÂ I slightly wish it was.
GQ Man of the Year Awards
Red carpet. Check. A-List celebrities. Check. Hot men. Ding ding ding! It could only mean one thing: it was time for the GQ Man of the Year Awards!
With the likes of Samuel L Jackson, Justin Timberlake, Pharell Williams and Michael Douglas all in the same room, youâ€™ll understand why it took me so long to choose my outfit (seventy two hours to be exact) and for having heart palpitations every time one of them walked past me.
I wanted to tell Samuel L Jackson that I thought Snakes On the Plane was one of the most underrated, iconic pieces of popular film art ever, but he was busy. I wanted to walk over to Justin Timberlake and kiss his face, but I melted at the knees. I even wanted to touch George Lamb’s grey hair, but when I saw him I giggled and ran away. Way to be cool. Still, at least I got to hang out with showbiz reporter Dan Wootton. He’s hilarious. Â The first thing he did was tell me a secret and make me pinky promise not to tell. Don’t worry Dan, your secret’s safe with me.
I’d also like to take a moment to express how great the goody bag was. Seriously. You know when youâ€™re little and the best you could ever hope for is an adult-size pack of hula hoops and non-soggy party rings? Well, letâ€™s just say, thanks to this party bag, a few men in my life will be getting a bottle of Hugo Boss very soon. Don’t thank me. Thank Hugo.
In other news, I had two fillings this week, and found myself with a Â£200 bill, a swollen mouth and a 24-hour dribble-fest. Oh well, at least it wonâ€™t just be Rylanâ€™s teeth being talked about this week. Have a great week!
