The perfect year
2022, where do I start? Firstly, thank you to everyone who has been involved in making this year a huge success. This year has been amazing. From making my debut on the West End stage with Grease, to almost finishing my first feature film that will be released next year. What a way to mark my 30 years in the entertainment industry. (I started off young, haha!)
I’ve also been doing many other things, including writing for the soundtrack of another film. I’m also putting together my first album in over eight years. So it’s been a massive year for me career-wise, which I’m very thankful for. It’s also been fantastic seeing Junior get his first recording deal. To see my son release a single was a magic moment for me and there’s so much more to come!
It’s been great seeing how much the other kids have achieved, too. Princess has been working really hard on her GCSEs. I’m proud to see how dedicated she is. Theo lost his first tooth and Millie is excelling in her gymnastics. And Emily continues to be a great doctor working for the NHS.
A few months ago I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about the inevitable changes to the royal family with the loss of Queen Elizabeth II. But I have to say, we’re looking forward to Charles III’s speech. Times have changed rapidly – there’s the economic crisis and the war in Ukraine – and people are generally feeling low, so his speech might mark some hope and change.
We always used to watch the Queen’s speech on Christmas Day, so we will be watching the King and hope it will bring a fresh start for many.
A feast of fun
This year Christmas is about family, family and family. I love to cook all year round and have been known to cook a Christmas dinner in my time, but Emily is incredible at Christmas feasts.
I'm sure she'll want to take full charge on the day, with all the trimmings – though I might get a chance at doing the roast potatoes if I'm lucky! The kitchen is Emily’s when it’s a roast dinner, she’s the Queen Bee of them.
Stand down Mariah
I’ve been working on this really fun campaign with On The Beach. They’ve made me “head of summer holidays” because, let’s face it, summer is the best time of the year! None of this “Christmas is the best time” malarkey. Don’t get me wrong, I love Christmas, but the minute it hits 26 December, millions of people are ready to take down the decs! How fun would it be to change the lyrics to the Andy Williams song It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year or Mariah Carey’s All I Want For Christmas Is You?
According to a poll, 78% of people believe that going on holiday is better than Christmas. Therefore, unsurprisingly, the vast majority of the population agree the Andy Williams song is factually incorrect, proving Christmas simply is not the
most wonderful time of the year. I rest my case!
