Get those game faces on

Strictly Come Dancing 2023 started with a bang.

I was on the show in 2021 and still, as soon as I hear that opening music, I go into panic mode – my feet start tapping, I straighten my back and put on my professional face.

I’m really looking forward to seeing how Bobby Brazier gets on and I’m rooting for my comedy brother Eddie Kadi, right, and radio star Nikita Kanda.

Ready, set, bake!

The new series of Bake Off starts tonight and I’m so excited.

I’ve seen a few glimpses of my gal pal Alison Hammond as the new host and it looks like she’s having the time of her life.

Having taken part in the celebrity version this year, I know how huge the pressure is.

I wish them all the luck in the world and I pray the heat of the tent doesn’t get to them.

Renovation queens

I’m carrying out renovations on my new house this week and, my goodness, I had no idea it would be this much work.

Doing up your house is like dating – it looks fun from the outset but needs more work than anticipated.

But I’m really enjoying the process because my kids are really involved too.

This house feels like a fresh start for us.

I even called on my friend Angellica Bell to help me with some of the work, as she’s recently done her house up too.

It’s been great – we should have our own TV show.

Women on the loose

The live Loose Women tour ends this week, but what a brilliant September it has been.

We travelled all over the country, bringing love and laughter.

It’s been a tour filled with glitz and glam and an enormous hit, so I’d like to say a huge well done to everyone who has been involved.

I can’t wait to tour with my girls again next year…

This was a special day – naturally!

Last week marked World Afro Day. We celebrated it on Loose Women and it was beautiful.

There have been insinuation that an afro isn’t smart enough, so it was great to have one special day to fight against that and show off our natural hair.
