Hanging out with Laura Whitmore and Michael Flatley on This Morning

Tuesday’s This Morning suddenly got very Irish with Michael Flatley, Laura Whitmore and myself all on the show. I’m a big fan of Michael, he’s such a talented performer so it was great to finally meet him having watched him pound the boards several times in the past. It’s hard to believe River Dance celebrated its 20th anniversary in April.


By the way, if you’re looking for a summer hat but don’t know which style to choose then watch back my masterclass in hat shopping for every occasion, copy the link below. We featured some great head-toppers!



The first ever Pride of Ireland Awards were held on Tuesday evening in Dublin’s Mansion House. Una Foden was on hosting duties and guests included Christine Bleakley, Louis Walsh, Carol Voderman, Imelda May, and Shane Filan. Unfortunately my flight didn’t land in time so I missed the show. But it turns out I should have travelled over with Carol Voderman who piloted her own aircraft over to Dublin… what a woman!

I finally got to escape this weekend for some much needed R&R at the Powerscourt Hotel. Powerscourt is one of the most scenic and historic estates in Ireland, located in County Wicklow, which is aptly called the Garden of Ireland. I even made some equine friends!


Two days of blissful respite and glorious sunshine mean I’m feeling fighting fit and ready to take on the world this week. Hope you have a great one!
