Spaced out – that time I met Jessica Hynes

So the other day a pretty strange thing happened. I’d been in the office editing a blog about Spaced to mark the forthcoming 15th anniversary of the show. To be honest I was getting sick of it as I couldn’t find any decent pics on the system and I ended up leaving the office knowing […]

What is it about spiders anyway?

So, other than the Scotland thing, the news of the moment seems to be spiders. There’s a spider app which makes you never want to look at your phone again helps you identify different types. There’s some terrible awful abandoned house in Ireland overrun with spiders. And now, apparently all our houses are going to be […]

Draco Malfoy is on Tinder and he’s been a very bad boy

Look, before you get Operation Yewtree involved, can I just point out that 1. Any Potter fan will tell you Draco’s now 34 and 2. He’s not real. Still, the fact that a man technically doesn’t exist wasn’t about to stop me from flirting in order to write a funny story find love. It all happened […]

So yesterday I decided to write about blow jobs

It all got a bit blue yesterday (I love that expression, think I got it from Peter Kay). I wrote this piece – 24 things all women think while giving a blow job. I was quite pleased with it to be honest. I mean, I’m fairly confident at least some of the points represent straight womens’ […]

That time I met Jon Snow

The other day I was on the train home after seeing To Kill A Mockingbird at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre when I go chatting to news-reading legend Jon Snow. I’ve started the story with that artsy reference so you won’t judge me too much when I say my friends and I were initially too busy […]

That time I met Annie Lennox

I bloody love my job sometimes. I sing with a local choir and, the other month, we did Walking On Broken Glass. I was lucky enough to get the solo. I spent weeks watching the video on YouTube (fun fact – Hugh Laurie co-stars), listening to it on repeat on my iPhone, angrily mouthing the […]

Does anybody (other than the Scots) care if they stay or go?

The British are a funny lot. Since 1707 our pretty tiny island (94,060 square miles) has included Scotland. Well, I say has. I mean, geographically it always has and always will. But in terms of whether we’re a united tinie tiny island or a divided one, we’ve had 307 years of all rubbing along together. […]

Leave Jennifer Lawrence alone!

Remember this? Feeling sorry for celebrities is generally about as ridiculous as this video but this week, when private photos of them were stolen and leaked onto 4chan, I felt pretty glad to be a nobody. Nude pics and videos of about 100 slebs, including Jennifer Lawrence, Scarlett Johansson, Rihanna, Kate Upton, Kim Kardashian, Mary […]

Katie Hopkins decided to get fat to prove a point so I wrote this to prove a point

Yes, that’s right, that’s Katie Hopkins whinging about what sounds like the kind of delicious party spread any normal person would be thrilled to consume. Mmm, chocolate milk. Anyway, in case you didn’t know, Hopkins started off as a reality TV star on The Apprentice before deciding it would be more fun to forge a […]
