Yes this week, Children’s BBC – the live links in between the shows – turned 30. Two weeks after Phillip Schofield went on air in 1985, I went for an audition at the TV Centre and was told shortly after afterwards that I’d be stepping in when Phillip needed cover.

Janice said she would like to hear more from me so you can blame her for this! I was widowed almost 5 years ago after a long and very happy marriage. I felt lost and bereft and felt my life was over.



Laithwaite's Wine are hosting their flagship event Laithwaite's LIVE in London next week, and it's set to be their biggest and best yet. In celebration of founder Tony Laithwaite's 50th year in wine, they are pulling out all the stops and bringing over 100 winemakers from 15 countries and dozens of regions. It will take place at the marvellous Great Halls of Vinopolis, sadly for the last time before moving venue next year, so don't miss out!
