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!
