My heart melted when I found out Aoife recognised me singing on TV
Did you catch Mollie, Rochelle, Vanessa and I performing on Stepping Out on Saturday night? I’m so happy to say the performance went really well. It was a huge production with all the dancers and skaters so it was great to pull it off. It’s funny because you spend what seems like ages rehearsing for a performance like that and then it’s over in a flash.
You might have seen a photo on Twitter of us meeting Mel B. Mollie and I were properly starstruck. She walked in to our dressing room and said hi and we were trying to play it cool, and then as soon as she left me and Mollie were so excited and screaming ‘Arghh! We’ve just met Mel B!’ We couldn’t believe that someone who was once on our posters on our bedroom walls had just walked into our dressing room!
I absolutely loved the Spice Girls when I was younger. I was the sporty one in my group of friends when I was younger so I was often likened to her. I never had a favourite though â€“ I just loved them all and the fact that they had their own individual characteristics.
We managed to catch some of the performances before we went on stage and we were so impressed. The level is so high, their performances were flawless. OritsĂ© Williams and his girlfriend AJ Azari blew me away with their performance, they were just outstanding. Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen and his wife Jackie were great, as were Brian McFadden and his wife Vogue but I do thinkÂ OritsĂ© and AJ will pip them to the post in the final next week.
I posted a little video of Aoife watching me and the girls performing on Saturday night. Our nanny Ruth videoed her in front of the TV in the kitchen in her highchair. At the beginning she’s leaning on her elbow, hand on her head and she’s not really bothered or watching properly. Then she starts getting in to the groove, and then she spots me and hears my voice â€“ which is so cute to think that she’s getting more and more intelligent and recognising me and she’s just screaming ‘la la la’ and it was so cute. I couldnâ€™t believe it when I saw it myself, my heart melted!
Speak to you all soon.
Lots of love Una xxx
