Rochelle and Marvin Humes’ ice bucket challenge

There’s a real back-to-school feeling in the air so this week I hit Oxford Street with This Morning to film our best picks of the new season. Thankfully the sun was shinning but it didn’t last long.

Back at the ITV studios the previous Friday, myself and Leo Bancroft teamed up for a surprise makeover on the gorgeous Denise Golightly who thought she was at This Morning to support her husband soldier Gaz who will compete in next month’s Invictus Games. Little did she know, she had been duped, and lined up for a makeover. In rehearsals Rochelle Humes managed to get some nice photo-bombing action in! At the end of the show Rochelle and Marvin bravely took up the ice-bucket challenge live on air.

I hightailed it back to Dublin afterwards where I was hosting Specsavers Spectacle Wearer of the Year Irish final. Earlier this year Specsavers staff from all across Ireland launched the search to discover the nation’s most fabulous specs wearer. The night saw eight finalists battle it out to become the Irish winner, with avid specs wearer Jenny Keane, a 28-year-old identical twin, taking home the title of Ireland’s Spectacle Wearer of the Year. Jenny will go on to represent Ireland in the Grand Final taking place in London this October.

We also had birthday celebrations in my house – my little Harry, a teacup Yorkie, turned 8 years last week. He’s been with us since he was 6 weeks old and he’s barely changed a day… he’s still tiny and so full of character!

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is the most beautiful woman ever

It’s been another busy few weeks which involved gawking at Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s never ending legs, a charity fundraiser with the British Fashion Council and I even managed to squeeze in a few days holiday!

If you’re looking for denim inspiration then listen up. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was back in town for the launch of Europe’s first Paige Shop at Selfridges’ Denim Studio. As the new face of the brand, Rosie flew in from her adopted home LA with Paige owner, and former model, Paige Adams-Geller. Rosie looked stunning (as in the most beautiful woman I think I’ve ever seen in the flesh) choosing to wear the eye-catching Indio Zip ultra skinny in blue galaxy coating.

I was also delighted to attend the Future of Fashion charity event in aid of the Prince’s Trust Million Makers scheme held at the Café Royal’s Pompadour suite (not too shabby for Monday eve!) in conjunction with the BFC and Parsons School of Design in New York. Alexis Knox was on the decks while Former T4 presenter June Sarpong welcomed guests to celebrate the book launch of ‘The School of Fashion: 30 Parsons Designers by Simon Collins’. The beautifully illustrated tome features sketches and interviews with famous alumni including Proenza Schouler, Donna Karan and Alexander Wang.

In between filming for This Morning, I got to indulge in some new fashion finds. 29 year old Joshua Kane is without doubt one of London’s most exciting young tailors and he’s quite the character to boot. Having cut his teeth as a designer at Burberry Prorsum, Jaeger and Paul Smith, Joshua is rapidly establishing himself as a ground-breaking tailor. His recently opened first tailoring shop in Old Spitalfields Market is a must-visit for any fans of a fine suit.

It wasn’t all work and no play however as I managed to escape to Barcelona for some much needed R&R!
