It’s been a very busy week for me.
I’ve been in Essex organising and helping out on a photoshoot with Nicola Goodger from The Only Way Is Essex.
My new company represents her and Nicola is Lauren Goodger’s sister – Mark Wright’s ex.
Anyway, I thought that instead of contracting a photographer from Essex I’d take one from Portsmouth with me. Keeping it local is the key.
So Paul Burrows, from Rob Paul Studios in Havant, came with me and took some stunning pictures.
Paul is amazing and I’ve known him for years. He’s a total professional, gets right to it and can be as creative as you want him to be. I was very pleased with the results and breathed a sigh of relief – so on my head be it if it doesn’t turn out well! Nicola looked fabulous and is quickly proving that she’s more than just Lauren’s sister.
In fact, I really wanted to fly her out to Australia and get her on I’m A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here because she does not get on with Mark and it would be TV gold.
But apparently, Sinitta and Pat Sharp are far more entertaining and in a way you’ve got to give ITV credit for this year’s line-up – I personally think it’s brilliant.
Talking about giving credit where it’s due though, you can like him or loathe him in TOWIE, but I think Mark has come across really well in the jungle.
It was a good tactic from his management to put him in there.
Shame we couldn’t have got Nicola in there as well – after all, Mark was dating Lauren for more than 10 years and when you’ve had that kind of on/off relationship, a sister is going to have a strong opinion (and boy does she). It would have been great TV viewing but maybe next year.
While I’m on the subject of I’m A Celebrity...does anyone else agree that the show’s presenters, Ant and Dec, have really stepped their gags up a gear this year?
They’ve been absolutely brilliant and coming from someone who dabbles in a fair amount of presenting, I’m telling you now that no other presenters would ever get away with their cheesiness, but I think they’re outstanding.
