Hanging with Grimmy, seeing Disclosure live and singing along to Beyoncé in concert


What do you do on a sunny Sunday morning in London? Lie in bed? Watch TV? Lounge about before having a Sunday roast? All are the correct answer but I actually spent yesterday morning sparring with heavyweight boxing champion David Haye at his Hayemaker Camp in London. The good thing was that obviously I was training with a pro and so getting the best workout ever. This puts me in perfect stead for my first every Brutal10 mudstacle this Saturday and for Sport Relief in a couple of weeks. I also managed to walk out of the ring with my nose still intact whilst making my five brothers very jealous. A huge plus! I’m feeling the pain today but having a one-on-one boxing match with David Haye just like Tinnie Tempah has done previously and MIC star, Spencer Mathews did too, I’ve woken up feeling like a champion, even if I am a little tender.

aj2 I can pack a punch too David Haye!

My stint in the ring came right after a week of music and filming. I filmed at a mystery location for a mystery TV programme. Arh the suspense of telly means that I’m sworn to secrecy but it’s very exciting. Here are some behind the scenes snaps. Just remember… I’m werking not twerking.


I also went to see Beyoncé who was obviously incredible. She got changed at least six times, didn’t stop dancing and even managed to incorporate Pac Man into her concert! I couldn’t believe how many songs she got through, Cameo’s hit Candy sampled in her single Blow and Jay Z came out (which I knew was going to happen but I still screamed like a little girl). She belted out I Will Always Love You by Whitney Houston, a seamless segue into her emotional song Heaven and all this whilst creating an immense sense of female empowerment throughout. The woman’s a capital G (for Genius) whilst I’m just a capital C (for croaky)! Next time I’ll leave the singing to Beyoncé.


Unsurprisingly there were less outfit changes at the Disclosure gig at Alexandra Palace on Saturday but joining them on stage was Eliza Doolittle, Sasha Keable, Aluna George and Sam Smith. What a musical delight! It was amazing. I even bumped into the lovely Nick Grimshaw after, where we talked excitedly about Disclosure AND Beyoncé before puckering up for the camera. Aww.
