Well, i haven’t sat down. If I haven’t been performing at the Secret Policeman’s Ball, I’ve been hosting the Q Awards, and if I haven’t done that then I’ve been filming the first in the new series of my celebrityDing Dong – i am cream crackered. This weeks Ding Dong, is between Eastenders and Coronation St, and as usual there was drama and that was before we even got started, poor old Julie Goodyear had a wardrobe malfunction, (images of her with her tit hanging out a la Janet flooded my mind and they weren’t nice) I thought it was an omen but in fact the show was brilliant and I can’t wait to see it Friday.
I had a really embarassing moment at the Q Awards, someone had told me that Grace Jones now lives in Northampton, i know, i know, but i believed it was so surreal that it might just be true. Me obviously being a Northampton lad, ran straight over to her and said ‘Grace! Which part of Northampton do you live? I’m from there’ There was a pause and in that deep, Jamaican tone uttered ‘What is Northampton?’ I’m assuming I wont be bumping into her at the Grosvenor Centre. It was amazing to meet her, and Coldplay, they were so sweet. Chris Martin says he loves my shows and bigged me up. Ahhh! I’m not too proud to say I welled up – i’m off to download their new album – you scratch my back Chris, i’ll scratch yours.
Don’t forget to watch me on Friday Night with Jonathan Ross tonight, it went really well, thats probably the only show that gets me REALLY nervous, plus I was sandwiched between Parky and Hollywood legend Faye Dunnaway, that hardly helps, but I was pleased to see it wasn’t just me eating the Green Room snacks, Faye was wolfing down the Cheese and Onion crisps like there was no tomorrow, yet significantly she bypassed the nuts. I’ve been in that Green Room with other actresses like Eva Longoria and Teri Hatcher and they didn’t eat a bite. I was well impressed, everytime I looked Fayes hand was there wiping away a crispy crumb from her collagened lips, it didn’t make me feel so guilty when I had a handful of Pringles.
Off to do rehearsal for the Secret Policeman’s Ball and am dead nervous, wish me luck!!!
Yes, i am doing Secret Policeman’s Ball, the reason I haven’t told anyone is the fact that I thought it was SECRET!!!!
