Looking forward to Easter

March 27, 2013

Weight Watcher’s has been on my mind this week, the forced tasting of cakes and ice creams through my job in telly and my desire to eat out every night have conspired against me and I have put on 3 lbs.  I am now gazing intently at my diary looking to put in extra gym […]

Been attending a lot of charity dos lately, which is no bad thing.  The Lions Legends v French Legends for charity at the Stoop was a riotous occasion.  My mate Michel Roux actually kicked off, he looked very smart in his French kit.  He managed to get the ball 10 metres and then got off […]

So sorry that I haven’t blogged for ages, I know people say they are busy, but life seems to have got a bit out of control at the moment.  I’m not complaining though, just trying to explain. There will be a new Masterchef out in the spring, haven’t got exact details yet.  I am also […]

I have had one of the craziest working schedules ever, I could see it coming up and I kept thinking to myself, good grief, how am I going to cope with that! Apart from all the normal things in my life, I have actually ended up making two television programmes at once. I can’t give […]

I’ve had one of the most relaxing holidays ever. I spent 5 days in Miami, which was so, so. Its bit of a party town, my kids knew this, I didn’t, which I think pretty much sums up Miami. I stayed in one of the swankiest hotels ever and came to the conclusion you had […]

Time to relax

July 30, 2012

I am often telling tales of serious hard work but I have to admit, life has been bit of a doddle lately. I have never had this much time off before.  I’ve got a few meetings chucked in and I’m finishing up my autobiography but I have been taking a break. I won’t be back […]

Horses, Courses & Antiques!

July 9, 2012

Spent a few fabulous days riding around the Sussex countryside in an old MG Midget with my new antique expert, Charles.  We were on the hunt for bargains that we were going to put into auction.  It was all for Children in Need and we were in direct competition with John Torode in a convertible […]

I really enjoyed my trip to Scotland.  Visiting growers around Edinburgh and Dundee for the Great British Food Revival.  Later on today, I’ll be trying out the recipes, I think you’ll have to wait until October to see it. I have been to the Pictures with my brother, Biffo, to see Prometheus, I really enjoyed […]

Good times!

June 12, 2012

I had the most amazing time in Glasgow, I love the Glaswegians, an unrivalled sense of humour and fun, the best place to have a night out.  And the Corinthian club, champagne bar, music venue, piano bar, restaurant and casino has got to be one of the most incredible venues I have ever had the […]

Busier then ever!

May 23, 2012

The highlight of the past couple of weeks has got to have been every single quality chef in the country attending a function at Number 10.  It was amazing, I just went from mate to mate with various glasses of wine, doing catch up chats and food talk and oh, yes, a quick chat with […]
