By the time you read this, hopefully with a nice cup of tea in your hand or perhaps after your Friday night takeaway, I shall be in the air travelling to Turks and Caicos in the Caribbean for work.
For some reason, no matter how much I protest to people that I’m not going away on holiday and will actually be working my backside off filming for a travel series, they don’t quite believe me.
But I can assure you what I’ll be doing over the next 10 days is work, work and, yes, more work – just in a very nice setting!
We’re going to be spending two nights on the mainland at the Royal West Indies Resort before getting a boat and going to the Parrot Cay resort, where we’ll spend four nights.
Before coming home we’re then going to the Cayman Islands for a couple of nights to film an extra episode there, so I won’t get back until next Sunday.
I can see why people don’t particularly empathise with me when I say it’s a work trip and not a holiday. But anyway, I shall report back next week as to how the trip went.
I’m just keeping my fingers and toes crossed that there’ll be at least an hour in a day where I can chill and soak up the delights of the destination. But going on previous experience, I doubt it!
My YouTube series is now live, people, and I’d appreciate it enormously if you check out my channel Cheryl Chats and subscribe to it.
This series is called How To Become A YouTube Star and I’ve spent the past few months interviewing some of the UK’s top YouTube talent, chatting to them and spending time learning about what it takes to become successful online.
I’ve done the series because I genuinely am intrigued as to why and how these ‘stars’ have become, well, ‘stars’.

I come from a very traditional media background where you worked your way up the ladder somewhere – then YouTube came along and changed what it takes to fulfil your dreams.
