Meeting Big Brother

I was incredibly fortunate the other week to receive an invitation from Channel 5 to come to London and meet with Paul Osbourne - the new Creative Director of the forthcoming Celebrity Big Brother series, as well as returning Executive Editor Tamsin Dodgson. I've been lucky enough over the past couple of years to also... Continue Reading →

With Mental Health Awareness Week drawing to a close in the UK I thought I would round off this week of blogging by putting to rights some of the most common misconceptions that surround those who suffer with depression and other mental illnesses. 1. We are just feeling sad or sorry for ourselves So this... Continue Reading →
