This issue’s little welcome note falls to me dear readers as your Editor finds herself taking a well deserved maternity break following the birth of our second child. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank her for all her hard work and dedication in making House what it is every fortnight. Whilst you’ve got me in a grateful mood, I’d also like to take a few moments to praise the team at EMCH for doing such a cracking job time after time. Well done people. Every fortnight, we give you this fabulous magazine, full of interesting reading and lots of competitions, but it’s not often we ask for anything in return. This issue is different though, as I’ve joined up with some other members of the AFC Business group to form a team for this year’s Dorset cycle ride in aid of Macmillan cancer care. It’s a cause close to so many of our hearts to help Macmillan continue the amazing work they do. So all I’m asking is that you visit

www.justgiving.com/AFC-Business and sponsor us for anything you can to help us reach our £10,000 target. This issue we’ve got some great reading for you, from wall sticker inspiration on page 110 to beauty tips from a few of our famous friends on 142 and some great TV picks on page 156. I’m hoping ITV’s new drama ‘Scott and Bailey’ will help fill the current void on our screens, as this year’s Apprentice is looking increasingly like it should be called ‘Business for Idiots’, or perhaps that should be ‘Idiots in Business!. Enjoy the read and if there’s anything you’d like to share with us, please email mail@house-mag. co.uk. Don’t forget to follow us @House_mag on twitter. Until next time. Chris Harman MD

A New Motoring Solution Launches in the South A brand new revolution is about to happen to the motoring industry in the UK, and it launches here in Dorset. The VS Club is a simple yet very effective vehicle management solution aimed at small and medium sized businesses. The VS Club has been nearly a year in the making, and is the brain child of local business entrepreneur Jeff Lester. Now in the process of being launched across Dorset and the UK, Jeff and his team are extremely proud they are inundated with potential customers and suppliers – the word is out on the street already!

Jeff says of the VS Club “We know it’s tough out there at the moment for anyone in business, but even more so if you’re having to run cars or vans or a small fleet of vehicles. So we’ve come up with a solution to take give smaller businesses the same buying power as multi-national companies. The motoring industry is equally behind the initiative as it sees an incredible opportunity to tap into the 4.8 million SME’s that literally are the backbone of the UK economy. The VS Club is making bold statements – potentially saving up to 50% on motoring costs!

Grand Garden Designs at the chelsea flower show Elks-Smith Garden Designs success goes from strength to strength as Helen attends the RHS Chelsea Flower Show (Tuesday 24th until Saturday 28th May), having designed and organised the ‘show stand’ for the Society of Garden Designers in the continuous Learning Zone (Great Pavilion Stand GPA5). Helen says ’It has been hard work, but also great fun and rewarding’. She continues ‘Myself and other SGD Experts will be offering free garden design consultation at the show, which is a unique opportunity to access expert advice for those thinking about garden design’. Sessions are available each day of the show although Helen will only be available for free design consultations on Wednesday 25 May 2011, so it is advisable to book your session early in the day to

avoid disappointment. For more information about Elk-Smith Garden Design please contact enquiries@elks-smith. co.uk, call 01425 674999 or visit www.elks-smith.co.uk

But they’re already doing it, with a number of very satisfied customers across the South. Nigel Leonard, part of The VS Club Franchise says “We are going to change the way smaller businesses manage their vehicles, it’s really that simple!”

If you run a small or medium sized business, and your associated vehicle costs are spiraling up and up – you need to contact The VS Club today on 05601 295 260 or visit www.vsclub.co.uk for more information.

Buy To Let – STILL A SOUND INVESTMENT? YES, say property experts Bournecoast who are based in Bournemouth. Market conditions for professional landlords have never been as good as the demand for properties to rent is still on the increase. Since the beginning of the recession, the rental sector has seen demand soaring as potential buyers have struggled to enter the property market by jumping on the property ladder. This has enabled Buy-to-Let (‘BTL’) investors charge record rental returns and experience shorter void periods than ever before. Des Simmons, Managing Director of Bournecoast said, “As fast as landlords register their properties with us, they’re let. Demand is still outstripping supply.” With such ideal conditions, landlords should feel confident about their prospects over the next few months. Des said, “With the huge demand from tenants and low interest rates,

realistic pricing and the promise of a good ROI, makes BTL a sound investment. Couple this with the recently announced changes in stamp duty which is aimed at encouraging the finance houses, its easy to understand why we are so positive regarding the market prospects.” He added, “We have many waiting tenants and several new properties ripe for investment, coming onto the market, which would be ideal for student lets and are capable of netting approx £4,000 per month in rent.”

use more gas and with the price of gas due to increase this Winter it makes sense to get your appliances serviced NOW during the Summer when it is often cheaper. A full service will also help to identify any possible problems so that they can be rectified before the appliance actually stops working. One last point, make sure you use a

Silent killer: Every year approximately 50 people die in this Country from Carbon monoxide poisoning. It has no smell,no taste and no sound. And that’s why it is absolutely essential that ALL gas appliances are serviced regularly. If you are a Landlord then you are legally required to have all gas appliances inspected and

maintained annually. Failure to comply with this legal requirement will result in an extremely heavy fine and, at worst, a stay in prison. Quite apart from the obvious safety aspect another good reason to make sure your gas appliances are maintained is to confirm that they are running efficiently. Appliances which have not been serviced will

Lesley Waters backs new foodie fundraiser Dine for Macmillan Lesley Waters has put her name and support firmly behind the newest fundraiser being launched by Macmillan Cancer Support – Dine for Macmillan. “When I heard about this new foodie fundraiser I knew I had to get involved,” says Lesley. “There can be no better way to raise money for one of Britain’s best loved charities than to have fun with your friends and family over a delicious meal.” Local area fundraising manager Claire Coles explains. “Dine for Macmillan is a really enjoyable event that’s so easy to take part in. There is no right or wrong way to get involved, all you have to do is host a meal and ask your guests for a suggested donation instead of bringing flowers or chocolates. We’re thrilled Lesley has agreed to be our foodie ambassador, she is so passionate about food and cooking, we’re hoping this will rub off on our hosts and get people inspired to share a meal together!” Dine for Macmillan caters for all tastes, all cooking abilities and all pockets. It can be a formal dinner, a simple supper party, a fabulous themed feast, a big breakfast, a picnic in the park or a takeaway ... you can even ask your favourite pub or restaurant to run a Dine for Macmillan event. Claire continues, “The beauty of this event is that you can hold it any time you like, as many times as you like. Why not make it a regular social event? Everyone can get involved, from budding chefs who want to show off their cooking skills to those more at home with a microwave meal. All that matters is that you take part and have fun doing it.” It really is easy as pie. If five guests all donate £5 a head, just one dinner party could fund a Macmillan benefits advisor for just over an hour, helping people affected by cancer understand what benefits they are entitled to and how financial grants can ease their money worries. Interested in holding a Dine for Macmillan event? You can register online. Find out more at www. macmillan.org.uk/ dine Once registered, hosts will receive a Dine for Macmillan fundraising pack which is crammed with menu ideas, hints and tips for making the party a real success.

This will be Brighter Production’s third year covering the event to be held on Sandbanks beach. Based at Ferndown Arena Business Centre, the Brighter Productions team will be working hard to do what they do best; providing a highly coordinated sound and light spectacle with all the glitz and glamour that has become expected of this premier event. Last year’s tents had an oriental feel however this year’s theme is a closely guarded secret. Brighter productions are also currently working alongside other local event organisers such as Bournemouth Tourism on events including the Bournemouth Tourism Awards, previously held at the BIC in November 2010. They are also proud sponsors of this year’s award winning Bournemouth Air Festival, and are supporting a special Royal

Navy Gala concert at the De Vere Royal Bath Hotel. Commenting on their base at Arena Business Centre, company creator Sean Tomkins said ‘We like the community spirit at Arena, we all share a common interest in running our businesses, which means they’re not just other units but our neighbours. We help and support each other where we can and if there’s an opportunity to do business, we will.’ Importantly in our ever disposable age, Brighter Productions take a greener approach to production solutions; using the most energy-efficient LED lighting and minimising the environmental impact of events in every way possible.

Amongst other tasks on the hit films, set designer Steve Fox helped to create a painstakingly accurate 20ft-tall MDF model of the towering structure. However, when it came to creating his own home he favoured clean lines and white walls rather than old brick and soaring towers. He and wife Tracey created their ultra-modern house in South-East London on a relatively frugal budget of ÂŁ110,000 In 2000 they brought a neglected threebedroom Edwardian semi for ÂŁ165,000 and embarked on a four year long renovation project. With the original house dull and uninspiring, they set about transforming it completely by building around its shell. After enlisting the services of an architect, they drew up plans to alter the property beyond recognition - turning it into an ultramodern abode As part of the transformation the property's traditional exterior features - the pitched roof and bay windows - were squared off. These were then masked behind a coat of immaculate render, which was painted a delicate petal-pink. This left the finished property with just three street-facing windows - one square and two narrow slits Meanwhile, the old-fashioned porch was replaced by an angular lobby with a floating roof. Inside, the large central living space is zoned into three different areas - sitting, dining and kitchen. A false wall along one side of the large space hides acres of cupboards and a neat cloakroom. Meanwhile, French windows lead out from the sitting room on to a generous deck, with steps down to the garden. The adjoining kitchen area, which is kitted out with shiny black units, wooden counter tops and a matt range style black oven, also has access to this decked area.

Extensive modern fitted kitchen completes a stunning open planned living area leading to the balcony. 27


28

There is also a gleaming black wet room and another terrace with fabulous views over the garden across London Throughout the house a waist-high ledge has been installed to enable Steve and Tracey to display their collection of paintings, photographs and drawings.


One of the property's statement features is a white, sculptural staircase which leads upstairs to the first floor. Here there are three bedrooms - one with its own private balcony overlooking the garden - and family bathroom. The master suite is on the top floor with the open-plan room divided by free-standing cupboards into sleeping area, dressing room and sitting room.

. I want to have a more contemporary kitchen but only have a small budget to update it. Can you recommend any changes that will make a big difference but not cost the earth?

. Firstly, is everything in the right place? If no, then I’m afraid that the cost of moving things around can be high but if you’re happy with the layout there’s a lot that can be done on a tight budget. Appliances – hobs and sinks can age quickly and make a kitchen look drab. Although this may sound expensive there are a lot of really good deals available at the moment so it’s worth shopping around.

Cupboards & drawers – if the layout of your kitchen bothers you, you can improve things with a little cabinetry work to switch the location of your drawers or cupboards. Replacing door and drawer fronts can also make a huge difference and if your budget is really tight consider replacing just the handles.

• We have a new range available now • All types of shaped windows • Installed by our shutter experts

Walls & tiling – adding a new coat of paint or washing down grimy walls with sugar soap will brighten the room. You can also change or add tiling or instead perhaps ‘Upstands’ or splash-backs covering existing tiling to create a new look. Worktop – adding a new worktop is one of the biggest changes you can make to update a kitchen and needn’t involve ripping out all of the cupboards underneath so can be cheaper than you think. All of these options are significantly cheaper than installing a new kitchen and can make a room seem like new. You’ll be surprised that even the smallest of changes can give big results.

If you need any guidance finding the right person to do the job give us a call on 01590 673 134 and we will point you in the right direction.

New House columnist and local planning expert Tony Ramsden answers questions about “hotels”.

Q.

Planning SolutionS CHARTERED TOWN PLANNERS

Planning SolutionS

We own a small hotel, we are really struggling at the moment and want to get out or find a solution before we lose too much money. Nobody wants to buy a hotel this small and we cannot afford to refurbish it. Can we turn the hotel back to a large family house, or convert it to flats?

A

. Sadly yours is not an uncommon situation. A change of use from a hotel to a residential house or flat development requires planning consent even if the building was a house for many years before. Some bed and breakfast establishments may avoid it if they remained predominantly a family house. Many Council’s, particularly those with a tourism industry wish to protect their hotel stock and have planning policies which resist the loss of tourism accommodation. In such areas they will not usually grant planning permission for a change of use from hotel to a residential dwelling without a comprehensive justification. In Poole there is a blanket policy across the Borough. In Bournemouth the policy applies to three specific areas on the West Cliff, East Cliff and Town Centre. Outside of the main tourism areas of Bournemouth such a change of use is often acceptable in principle at the present time. But be warned - planning policy changes and Bournemouth is likely to adopt a Borough-wide policy within the next 12 months. If you are caught by such a policy then unfortunately you have a battle on your hands! It may be possible to overcome the policy by demonstrating that the existing hotel is not viable but this must be done thoroughly and professionally to persuade the Council. Another option which our firm has had considerable success with is looking for a solution which retains some tourism accommodation on the site – typically in the form of self contained holiday apartments – but then frees up part of the site or building for new open market residential flats or houses. Each case requires a tailored approach so if you would like some advice on finding a viable solution for your personal situation, please do not hesitate to call Planning Solutions on 01202 375862 to arrange a free-of charge consultation.

A GARDEN'S LIQUID ASSET Outside Water expalin how to bring your old natural pond to life

80

A garden with water is a complete garden. This core element brings peace and tranquillity to your garden whilst at the same time adding interest through movement and reflection as well as attracting wildlife to the garden. Water in the garden can come in many forms; a small water feature in the corner of the garden will add a focal point and the gentle therapeutic trickling sounds of the water will add an essence of relaxation. A wildlife pond with fish or just aquatic plants will provide a valuable source of water for a multitude of wildlife both in the pond and outside. However, what is most important is to give thought to exactly what it is that you are looking for in your garden. Is it a Koi pond that you seek, crystal clear water with beautiful Japanese koi swimming around? If you have an old pond that has seen better days which is now filled with broken stones, holes in the liner, green water, pumps that do not work – fear not, they can be brought back to life. Or are you looking


for something different, that one off design, something that has the wow factor but low maintenance? Are you looking for water that you can use, even swim in? Perhaps a natural swimming pool or pond is what you seek. A pool that is landscaped into the garden design in any shape and form, with low running costs and chemically free. These can come in the form of a small plunge pool or large swimming lake. Are you a keen all year swimmer perhaps a lap pool is right up your street? A natural pool can be designed to fit into almost any area of your garden. Do you have a conventional pool that gets no use and has been neglected. These can easily be converted into natural pools creating a more attractive body of water within your garden. Are you becoming more water conscious? Do you wish to conserve more water from you home for use in the garden irrigation system or for watering the veg plot. Create

a natural looking storage system with a garden billabong. Capture all the run off from your home and store it in a garden designed billabong that can run dry but still look beautiful. Outside Water are specialist designers of Water gardens and associated landscaping in Dorset, Hampshire and Wiltshire. They are able to provide the solutions to whatever water option you seek from a simple pond problem to the major reconstruction of a garden. Design, build, renovation, maintenance and landscaping all from one company. A small team who are all incredibly passionate about adding water to your garden.

This project was an exciting prospect, our contemporary design sought to exploit the full potential of the site with large areas of glazing and balconies to extend the living space into the landscape.

As an estate agent of ten years, I have heard on many occasions how desperate people are to fall within one school catchment area or another. Now, I was not so naive or out of touch with people’s feelings to have dismissed these requests. ‘Oh no’ I was told ‘you must read the local OFSTED report’s, this school is amazing, whilst this one is atrocious’! ‘How is this so?’ I would ask. And almost invariably it would be the responsibility of the Head Teacher, the influence of foreign immigrants or ghettoizing of certain areas. So it was with some trepidation my wife and I applied for our oldest Son’s school admission for this September. Now I need to set the scene a bit. My wife is a Catholic; she attends church once to twice a month. She has been attending the same church for several years and has an interest in all that goes on there. Not only that but all of my wife’s family had been raised as Catholics and attended Catholic schools. We, therefore, applied, having got letters signed from her Priest. We filled the forms in accurately, as we didn’t want to lie and put that we attended church on a weekly basis. We sent them in punctually and believed that we fell within the general catchment area for Corpus Christi which is approximately a mile away. We also decided that, whilst geographically further away than was ideal, we would put down St Walburga’s as second choice as it is the other RC School in Bournemouth. About a fortnight ago we got the news we had been dreading, none of our choices; in fact we got Winton Primary School, a non denomination junior school. Now this is a school that has been through some real issues, it is currently under ‘Special Measures’ and has been subject to an appointment of a ‘Super Head’ in the last academic year. This will I am sure promote an improvement in results, however this will be some years off and certainly too late for my son. We of course phoned up the schools admissions desk at the council to try and understand what had happened. Apparently my wife putting that she only attended church twice a month moved us down a category, had we lied and put weekly he would have got in to our first choice. They accepted 60 children and only turned away 3 from the category that he fell in. So that was helpful! In total they had 186 applications for the 60 places. So I enquired as to why he hadn’t got his second choice. Bizarrely we were told he had fallen into their top category as a fully fledged Catholic but that at 2.4 miles away we were too far to be considered. This we found a little strange as Winton Primary is over 3 miles away! 3.4 To be precise, so far away in fact that we could get to 10, yes 10 other junior schools in the time it will take to get to that one. St Walburga’s had 204 applications for 60 places, I am amazed how many church goers there are, surely our Church’s should be rammed on a Sunday morning. By now I was really confused. We are category one at one Catholic school, but category 2 at another which would have altered had we lied. Confusing and annoying. So now we enter the next exciting phase, the appeals process (can you sense the irony). Once again, we have done all we can but I am now convinced that it really is a case of throwing all the forms in the air and which ever of the 60 they pick up first get in. This was never an issue in my head for the first 33 years of my life. However, whenever a client mentions their need to get into a catchment area as a necessity, I will understand completely. It is a tiring, confusing and ridiculous process that seems quite happy to screw up common sense into a tight ball and throw it back in your face.

A. Go for a ‘less is more’ lifestyle with a quiet palette of sophisticated

Greige tones and timeless, iconic designs. When applying the ‘less is more’ rule you can afford to spend a little more on items that you will love forever and follow what is in your heart rather what the current trends are. Choose colour mixes of grey-beige tones ( Greige ) that’s soft and fresh, yet never in your face. When using neutrals, there’s no need to worry about choosing two or three complimentary colours as they all work together, so go for as many as you like. To stop them from looking flat layer different tones and add texture with different finishes from knits to high shine gloss. To create a warm effect pair it with wood, and to add a harder edge incorporate some silver. To glam it up, add crystals or bronze or silver metallic’s. The key rules: 1. Pick a tonal palette and stick to it. Avoid accent colours and large areas of black, and use white sparingly. If you stray from a palette of greige tones, you will lose the overall impact of this look. 2. Go for textures in fabrics, wallpaper and flooring. Avoid lots of pattern, as this will detract from the simplicity of the look 3. Think less is more and keep the looks clean, adding only well-considered, beautiful accessories and furniture.

MOTORING

THE LATEST NEWS ON ALL THINGS MOTORING

Mini set for adventure Mini has proved that it may be small in name but that it's also big in aspiration with the launch of its 2011 John Cooper Works World Rally challenger The countryman-based car is set to bring the Mini name back to front-line rallying and the WRC Team will compete in six rounds of this season's championship before making a full tilt at the title next season. The team's first appearance this year will be at next month's 'Rally d'Italia' in Sardinia following final tests of the new car in Spain and Britain. The Prodrive built John Cooper Works rally car was unveiled in a recent launch event at the Mini Plant in Oxford by drivers Kris Meeke and Dani Sordo. The event celebrated Mini's rich

heritage in the sport and Paddy Hopkirk, Timo Makinen and Rauno Aaltonen who all won the Monte Carlo Rally in the classic Mini Cooper in the 1960s were in attendance. Prodrive boss David Richards, a former team principal of the BAR and Benetton Formula One teams is enthused about bringing Mini back to WRC and hopes this newest incarnation can prove to be every bit as successful. "We have an experienced team, a talented driver pairing and most importantly of all a strong partnership with MINI," said Richards. He added: "We have been working towards this moment for more than two years and it is truly exciting to be launching the Mini WRC Team in what I believe is the most stunning car in world rallying." Dani Sordo has joined the Mini WRC team following his departure from the championship winning Citroen team at the end of the 2010 season. Sordo is still searching for his first WRC win and is keen to get the ball rolling. "I'm really looking forward to the new challenge and to fight for strong results with the Mini John Cooper Works WRC," said Sordo. For Northern Ireland's Kris Meeke this represents a first go at the top level of the sport but he enters the season with a growing reputation after winning the Intercontinental Rally Championship 2009. "The heritage of Mini in motorsport is fantastic. Now we want to make sure we play our part in adding some more chapters to the success story," said Meeke.

Quake-hit Honda to cut production Car giant Honda is to halve production at its UK factory from next week until the end of May because of a shortage of parts from Japan. The 3,000 workers at the plant in Swindon, Wiltshire, will remain on full pay, and the move will lead to 22,500 fewer cars being built, although Honda said it will make up the production by the end of the financial year. Most parts for the three models built in Swindon are sourced in Europe, but a number of parts continue to be supplied from Japan, which is still recovering from the devastating earthquake and tsunami. The interruption of supply of these parts will now have an impact on production in the UK, said Honda., which added in a statement: "Production volume will continue at approximately 50% of the planned weekly level from April 11. "By taking this action, Honda of the UK Manufacturing (HUM) will be able to continue production by utilising HUM's flexible working policy. Pay is maintained for all associates. Once full production is resumed, the reduced volume production will be quickly recovered using the banked hours."

Following the earthquake and tsunami in Japan on March 11, Honda suspended car and component production in Japan, but the company announced last month that car production at its Suzuka and Sayama factories would resume from April 11, with production and shipment of component parts starting this week. But the company said the parts supply situation remains "unstable", with production of component parts and vehicles at Honda plants in Japan resuming at around 50% of the original production plan. "As parts supply stabilises and full production resumes, Honda will quickly develop a production schedule to meet the needs of Honda's European customers," the statement said. Unite regional officer Jim D'Avila said: "We fully understand the difficult and extraordinary circumstances facing Japan. Unite representatives have been fully involved in discussions and have been co-operating with Honda. "The union will be keeping a close eye on developments. Thanks to a working time agreement that Unite negotiated in 2009, there will be no loss of earnings for the workforce while the company cuts production."

Chevy tops reliability poll Value-brand Chevrolet has topped a survey of car reliabilty, according to new research. Warranty Direct's Reliability Index analyses both the frequency of failure and also the cost of repair to customers' cars, and currently Chevrolet is leading the pack with a score of just 20.00 - the lower the score, the better the reliability and lower the cost. Honda's score stands at 30.00. Furthermore, Chevrolet also tops the charts for repair costs - at ÂŁ195.14 per repair claim, Chevrolet beats its nearest rival, Fiat, by over ÂŁ40. To make it a hat trick, Chevrolet also claims the lowest 'time-off-the-road' in terms of repairs, with an average of 1.41 days per claim to repair. Second placed Suzuki's score is 1.67. Chevrolet - a keen supporter of and fully subscribed member to Motor Codes, the UK car industry's self-regulating commitment to fair practice and good customer service - was also the first brand to offer a fully comprehensive five-year aftercare package to its customers. The Five-Year Promise, introduced in 2010, not only offers a warranty, but also roadside assistance, servicing, MoT insurance and vehicle health checks over the period. Proof, if it were needed, that Chevrolet believed in its cars' dependability. Warranty Direct's Managing Director, Duncan McClure-Fisher, said: "Honda has held the top spot in our overall manufacturer's reliability table for many months, so for Chevrolet to knock them off their perch is a major coup. You have to bear in mind that we do not hold as many policies on Chevrolets as Honda models but, nevertheless, the data we do have clearly shows that Chevrolets are trustworthy vehicles." His comments are echoed by Chevrolet UK Managing Director, Mark Terry, who added: "It's a real testimonial to the quality and reliability of our vehicles that we're leading the Reliability Index. But more than that, the finer data such as time of repair and average repair costs goes to show that our passion for providing customers with real-world value goes beyond the initial purchase of the car. Our dealers are clearly making an effort to minimise the disruption of any repairs to our customers, and helping them keep their cost down at a time when we're all watching our pennies."

Chocolate nut & raisin cookies Ingredients: 75g Flora Cuisine 55g caster sugar 100g acacia honey 1 egg, medium 1tsp vanilla essence 1tsp coffee essence 100g raisins, chopped 150g self-raising flour, sieved 25g cocoa powder, sieved 25g chopped plain chocolate 50g flaked almonds

Method: Blend the spices and herbs together and sprinkle evenly over the salmon fillets. Heat the Flora Cuisine in a nonstick frying pan over a low heat. Add the salmon skin side down and gently cook for 12-15 minutes or until cooked through, turning occasionally. Mix the creme fraiche with the horseradish and honey to taste and serve with the salmon.

Method: Preheat the oven to 170C/Gas Mark 3. Put the tomatoes, onion, lemon thyme, sugar, salt, garlic and oil in a large bowl.

Put the Cheddar, beer and Worcestershire sauce in a small saucepan set over a low heat. Stir until the cheese has melted and the mixture is smooth. Toast the bread under the preheated grill on one side only. Spread two tablespoons of the cheese mixture on each untoasted side of bread and grill until bubbling and golden. Ladle the soup into four warmed serving bowls, place a Rarebit Toast on top of each one and serve immediately.

How do celebrities juggle their cosmetic routines when their make-up artists are off duty? Lisa Haynes asks Fearne Cotton, Holly Willoughby and Coleen Rooney about their star products and beauty schedules.

142

Wayward false lash, smudged eye liner or lipstick on teeth? Next time you moan about a make-up blunder, take pity on those poor celebrities. With studio lights, HD television and paparazzi flashbulbs to contend with, a bad hair day or going cosmetics-free isn't really an option without being featured in a dreaded 'circle of shame' magazine spread. After long stints in the public eye, however, there's rarely a panic in front of the mirror for Fearne Cotton, Coleen Rooney and a very pregnant Holly Willoughby. In fact, both Fearne and Coleen have embraced the beauty world by launching their own cosmetic lines. Thankfully, there's no exclusivity clause banning them from using other products too, so we can discover all their beauty secrets. Here, the three glamorous stars give us a glimpse into their designer make-up bags and can't-live-without cosmetics.


Holly Willoughby The pregnant TV presenter has recently launched her Holly Willoughby high summer collection for Very, from £25 (08448 222321/ www.very.co.uk). Must-have product Estee Lauder mascara. I have tried and tested hundreds of mascaras, and always come back to the same one. It's brilliant. Your look I have found what works for me and stick to it... a big bouncy blow dry, glossy lips and subtle ticks of eyeliner. Everyday routine I take off make-up with a gentle cleansing wipe - wearing full make-up for work every day means I need to be careful in looking after my skin. I use a range of Murad skin products to keep my skin in good condition.

be bothered with make-up then I will wear sunglasses and lipstick and feel slightly better about myself. Your look I don't know if I ever really have a set 'look' - I change it all the time. Everyday routine: It sways from being good to really awful. When I'm behaving, I'm really studious about taking all my make-up off, toning and moisturising... the lot. Pamper treat I love massages because I run quite a lot so I'm always aching somewhere.

moisturise every morning and evening using Guinot products. I also use Johnson's wipes to take my make-up off. I like to get a facial every six weeks. Pamper treat My favourite thing is a full body massage. Experimental side I experiment sometimes if I'm going to a party. It all depends on what I'm wearing and if the makeup and hair goes with my outfit. Top beauty tip Groomed eyebrows make a big difference in framing your face.

Experimental side I cut all my hair off because I was bored of myself. I wanted to try something that was a bit more versatile. I had hair that was down to here and I couldn't do anything with it. I'm loving being blonde again. Top beauty tip People usually ask me how I do my eye liner - I do a pencil line first, smudge it a little bit and then add a liquid line over the top. You get the definition but you still have the smudge so it won't budge!

Pamper treat I treat myself to a pedicure. I feel sorry for my feet; they carry me around all day, so I figure it's my duty to look after them.

Beauty bulletin Branch out Plant trees without getting your hands dirty via Origins Earth Month offer. For every Plantscription

Experimental side I don't tend to experiment. If you look back over the years, my hair and make-up have pretty much stayed the same. I know what suits me and if I drastically chopped all my hair off one day, I worry I'd wake up the next day and regret it!

anti-ageing serum (£45) sold during April 17-30, Origins will plant a tree on the customer's behalf. The skincare brand has teamed up with Global ReLeaf for the tree plant to help restore areas damaged by wildfire (0800 034 6522/www.origins.co.uk).

Top beauty tip Heat your eyelash curlers with a hairdryer before you use them. It makes such a difference.

Review Oscar’s Restaurant, The Royal Bath Hotel Oscar’s restaurant finds itself in Bournemouth’s prestigious Royal Bath Hotel which was actually the first hotel in Bournemouth, with its commanding position on the East Cliff. The hotel opened on Queen Victoria’s coronation day in June 1838 and since then has entertained countless distinguished visitors. We learned that some of the royal visitors include the King and Queen of Sweden, and Empress Eugenie, wife of Napoleon III. Disraeli and Gladstone, political rivals of the 19th Century also stayed here and to add to start studded line up were myself and my guest for dinner last week! Oscar’s is a special place to dine. Having been recently transformed with booth seating combining old and new world style using soft sage greens and creams complimented by ornate yellow gold finishes, the restaurant offers sumptuous surroundings in which to enjoy fine dining and wines. Oscar’s boasts a dual menu; an à la carte, complemented by a ‘Great British Classics’ choice, available daily for lunch 12.30-2pm and dinner 6pm until late. The menu is a nod to classic British dining, using locally sourced, top quality seasonal ingredients and passionate chefs preparing each mouthful to perfection. To start I ordered the New forest Duck Salad whilst my guest chose Warm spinach & ricotta cheese mousse with tomato salsa. With both of our starters it was quite apparent that the quality of ingredients was unparalleled and made for a great start to the meal leaving us hungry for more. The duck was amazing - highly recommended. I followed with a slow cooked belly of pork with Bramley apple sauce, an old favourite of mine and I was delighted to find it to be a superb example. My guest opted for the Daube of Hampshire venison with red wine jus and creamed potatoes, which was beautifully tender. All in all the food was excellent and we liked the dining room but the service could do with a bit of a NEED TO shape up. There seemed to be a distinct language KNOW barrier and when I asked ‘what kind of beef is it?’, our waitress went away and returned to inform me AMBIENCE that it was in fact beef from a cow. As if this wasn’t enough, when we asked about the fish we were told FOOD it was one from the sea. Although this was fairly SERVICE amusing to us, some people could find it a little

andy jackson learning to be happy

The Wave 105 presenter tells us how happiness is the answer...

I often look at the self-made millionaires in the media and think lucky them! Assuming that life has been good to them, that they are the jammy ones. I rarely stop to consider that maybe life hasn’t always been a plain sailing combination of first class travel, expensive champagne and luxury living. “Learning to be happy has made me rich!” proclaims Sue Stone, who has been a regular guest on my show for a number of years – and in her case it certainly has as the Dorset-based life coach is the latest contestant to feature on the Channel Four popular TV series Secret Millionaire. However, it has been a bumpy ride for Sue, who once lost almost everything. In 1999, within the space of just a few short months, her world came crashing down around her. Sue was desperately left with more than a quarter of a million pounds worth of debt following her marriage breakdown. She faced the terrifying repossession of her family home and the reality of three young children to bring up alone with no income. The turning point came when Sue had just £10 left in her purse and no idea where the next penny would come from. Sue says, “When I woke up the next morning I realised that if I carried on the way I was going I would lose everything. I was not prepared to accept that this was going to be ‘it’.” Instead, she set about discovering ways to improve her life and her relentless pursuit of happiness led her to spend several years researching the incredible power of our thoughts, our subconscious mind and the astonishing power of our feelings Sue has now made her fortune through the power of positive thinking and now is a successful business woman in her own right. The Sunday Times Rich List regular, Richard Branson started his billionpound Virgin empire from the boot of his car, selling cut price vinyl records before going on to open a record store. However, shortly afterwards was arrested and charged for selling records in Virgin stores that had been declared export stock. Branson’s mother re-mortgaged the family home to help pay the settlement. This did not hold him back and to say now that Branson has his fingers in many pies is an understatement. The Virgin name now has businesses in sectors from air travel to space travel, trains to media to name just a few. Branson has been quoted as saying “My interest in life comes from setting myself huge, apparently unachievable challenges and trying to rise above them...from the perspective of wanting to live life to the full, I felt that I had to attempt it.” The world’s best loved children’s author JK Rowling is well known for her rag-to-riches life story – in which she progressed from living on welfare benefits to multi-millionaire status within five years, there have also been rumours that the young mum lived in her car for a period of time. She struggled to find time to write her first novel while studying to be a teacher in Edinburgh with a young baby. These business-stars have worked hard to succeed in this life and are now reaping the rewards on a grandeur level. Sue is author of the best-selling happiness book, Love Life, Live Life.

Focus on Fibre

THE LATEST TIPS FOR LOOKING YOUR BEST

Men – MOT your health, not just your car Trying to drag your man to the doctor is an old joke, but one that there may well be some truth in. Many blokes think nothing of taking their car in for a regular service to keep it running well, but are far less vigilant when it comes to their own bodies. But all is not lost. Men reluctant to get themselves along to a GP for everyday niggles

can have a free health check at a Well Man clinic to keep themselves ticking over in tip-top condition. Like their better-known Well Women counterparts, Well Man clinics specialise in male health care and fellas between 40 and 60 can get themselves an MOT to help spot potential problems early.

What do they do? Well Man clinics assess your general health and fitness to check for conditions that can be easily treated, helping you avoid bigger problems further down the line. They can monitor your weight and blood pressure and check your cholesterol to see if you're at risk from heart attacks or strokes. You might also be given a urine test to check for diabetes, or be given advice on male health issues such as erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation or prostate conditions. Some clinics offer more services than others: you may also be offered tests for hearing and vision problems, joint flexibility and heart problems via an ECG.

Pile on the guacamole Fibre 9g in an average-size avocado Bonus: Overindulged on the sauce? Time to get on the guac. In a study of 22 fruits conducted by researchers at Shizuoka University in Japan, avocado was found to be the most effective at improving liver health. And that’s not the only reason to pile more of the green stuff on your tacos. “The monounsaturated fats in avocado also help to lower blood pressure,” says Lisa Blair, founder of London Nutrition Clinic. Holy guacamole indeed.

How do I find one? Ask your GP - your surgery or local hospital may run its own Well Man clinics. If not, they can probably give you information about where to find one in your area. Clinics are also run by private companies, but going down this route will cost you money.

What happens while I'm there? You'll be asked about your medical history and that of your immediate family to identify any problems you may be at risk of. They'll also ask about your lifestyle: your smoking habits, diet, alcohol consumption and how much exercise you get, and give advice on how to reduce your risk of related problems like stroke or coronary artery disease.

Is it worth it? Yes. As well as the obvious benefits of identifying potential problems early, Well Man clinics can help you live longer, have more vitality, and even help you last longer in bed, and all for free! What's not to love?

Gorge on popcorn Fibre 4.3g per 100g Bonus: Douse it with butter or sugar and the cinema staple can turn your belly into a multiplex, but unadorned popcorn has blockbuster health credentials. As well as being high in fibre and rich in cancer-fighting polyphenols, a study in Too many kids getting little the American Journal too of Clinical Nutrition found munching exercise popcorn helps you burn – off abdominal fat.

Protein you keep a careful eye on. Carbs and fat are ever present on your nutritional radar. But if asked to estimate your daily fibre intake, would you have an answer? Probably not, if the stats are to be believed: the average Briton consumes a paltry 9g a day, says registered dietician Gillian Killiner. Just half the 18g minimum recommended by The British Nutrition Foundation. And this is a deadly deficit, according to a new study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine. After monitoring almost 400,000 adults over a period of nine years, the researchers found those who ate at least 26g of fibre a day were 22% less likely to expire than those who consumed 13g a day or less. Here’s three simple ways to get more fibre in your diet.

Grab your nuts Fibre 3.3g per ounce of almonds (around 22 nuts) Bonus: Nuts are often avoided because people think they’re high in fat. And they are. Good, monounsaturated fats, which fortify your ticker. Many large epidemiological studies – including the Nurses’ Health Study, the Iowa Health Study, the Adventist Health Study and the Physicians’ Health Study – have all found nut consumption is linked to a lower risk of heart disease. “When almonds are substituted for more traditional fats in trials, cholesterol can be reduced by 8-12%,” says Killiner.


Kate middleton's fitness regime AT 5ft 10install and weighing just 8st 8lbs, Kate Middleton’s slim and athletic figure was always going to draw comparisons with Princess Diana. On a recent outing, the 29-year old princess laughed off suggestions she was getting too thin by claiming: “It’s all part of the wedding plan.” Despite the gossip surrounding her eating habits, Kate sticks to a low GI diet of lean meats, fish and vegetables to stay healthy. She loves “summer foods,” including beans, salads and salmon, and although she doesn’t deny herself, she is believed to be extremely disciplined in what she eats… Kate has also been linked to Dukan diet, originated by Pierre Dukan, to fit into her wedding gown on April 29. Her mother, Carole, has been a Dukan devotee since using the diet to shed weight last year and it is rumoured she has turned her daughter on to the regime. A variation on the hugely popular Atkins diet – high protein and low carb – the Dukan diet already has several famous fans, including Hollywood A-listers Jennifer Lopez and Nicole Kidman. The four-stage diet consists of a series of phases – attack, cruise, consolidation and stabilisation – whereby foods are withdrawn and then slowly re-introduced. According to the Dukan diet website, the phases enable the dieter to lose then maintain the correct level of weight for body type.

DUKAN DIET FORMULA ATTACK Brief and headlong phase with immediate results. During this phase, the diet is made up of 72 high-protein foods enabling quick weight loss. Cruise During this phase, the diet alternates pure protein days (PP phases) with 28 recommended vegetables (PV phases). CONSOLIDATION Phase of 10 days which prepares for the return to a balanced diet. Monitored freedom with a target of establishing this freshly conquered and still vulnerable ideal weight. This phase brings the gradual return of fun foods.

STABILIZATION Definitive phase based on three simple, concrete, easy but non-negotiable measures. This phase is both the easiest and most essential in the slimming method because 95 per cent of people who follow a diet put the weight they have lost back on.

FITNESS Because Kate leads such an active lifestyle, her diet of low GI carbs only serve to help maintain her slim frame while muscle definition is down to her choice of exercise. She is a keen gym bunny and does at least one hour every day, using the private facilities installed at Clarence House. Her favourite high-energy workout includes rowing, running and weight lifting. She also cycles regularly, balancing her cardio workouts with yoga sessions to improve flexibility.

Kate’s Workout RUNNING – To really burn fat and ensure a body fit for a princess, vary the speed of your workout. Running at a high intensity for three minutes and a moderate intensity for five will ensure all of your muscles are working hard and help tone your abdomen.

ROWING – For super-toned arms, rowing is the best thing to banish bingo wings and impress the future king. An intense 30-minute rowing session can burn 300 calories. A session on the rowing machine will provide great strength, flexibility and posture in your upper body.

WEIGHTS – Adding weights to a cardio routine will help with muscle definition and sculpting body shape. As weights are essentially the same as resistance training, it will help improve co-ordination and increase bone density as well as improving performance during cardio routines. Doing step-ups and push-ups alongside squats and lunges using an exercise band will also give the same effect. For best results, do repeat each move 10 to 12 times, breaking just long enough to catch your breath in between. Repeat for two to three sets.

YOGA – Lactic acid build-up in the muscles from vigorous cardio exercising contributes to muscle fatigue so it’s vital to use yoga stretches in between regular workouts to release any lactic acid build-up. Forward bends stretch the lower back and hamstrings. This helps you let go of tension in

the back, neck and shoulders, increasing the flexibility of the spine. Backward bends open the chest, hips and rib cage and hips, building strength in the arms and shoulders. They also add to flexibility in the shoulders, while helping ease the tension from the front of the body and hips. Seated asanas – or poses – increase suppleness in the hips and lower back. Strengthening the whole back, they increase the flexibility of the spine and elasticity of the hips, knees, ankle and groin. Balancing asanas are essential for cultivating muscle tone and physical harmony as well as strength and agility. Great for overall posture.

LIFESTYLE – Holiday activities with Prince William include skiing, which uses both upper and lower body to get the heart rate soaring and can burn up to 1400 calories an hour. On their trip to Kenya last year, they had an active holiday, including horse and camel riding. Tennis-mad Kate, who plays at Princess Diana’s old haunt, the Harbour Club in Chelsea, is all set for Wimbledon this year when she will be the Royal representative. She also loves swimming, which helps tone up her body.

NAUGHTY BUT NICE – Kate has a notoriously sweet tooth,. Haribo Starmix and Tangfastics are her favourites. She stocks up from local stores when she is with her family in Bucklebury, Berkshire. Shopkeeper Hash Shingadia and his wife Chan said: “Kate loves them. She came in with her mother and bought some Haribos. “She also bought French bread, ham, salami, cream and eggs and her favourite magazines, Hello!, Tatler and Elle. She’s a normal girl.”

Review Jetski safari

Salterns Marina

Zipping along with smiles as wide as our faces

The House team get up to crazy capers on the high seas!

We get asked to review all sorts of things at HOUSE, from restaurants to spas, treatments to car valets, but last week we literally jumped at the chance to review a ‘Jetski Safari’. Local company Jetski Safaris Ltd, based in Salterns Marina Poole operate guided jetski ‘safaris’ in and around Poole bay using top of the range two person 1300 jetskis, capable, (as we proved!) of speeds of up to 40mph. All five of us turned up at Salterns a little before 2pm on a glorious May afternoon, threw on some wetsuits, lifejackets and helmets before listening to the safety briefing and instructions. Before we could say ‘jetski safari’ we were on one, politely drifting out of the marina and into Poole harbour. The jetskis are an absolute breeze to drive, brake on one side, accelerator on the other, they drift from a slow rumble to ridiculously fun high speeds. The steering takes a little getting used to though, particularly in choppy conditions, or while crossing another craft’s wake, but after a quick practice just inside the harbour, we were soon on our way to Old Harry. Zipping along with smiles as wide as our faces could possibly cope with, we were at Old

Harry in no time. After burning around there for a while, enjoying the scenery and testing out our turning skills, we headed backing Studland, then across to Sandbanks. Sadly, that was the end of our safari as we headed back into the harbour and Salterns to moor-up. Although, it seemed over in a flash, that was actually a good hour and a half later and like they say, time flies when you’re having fun! I literally cannot recommend the experience enough, it was real blast. Jetski safaris are perfect for all sorts of occasions, from team building and company days out, to birthdays or just for a laugh with a bunch of mates. We had so much fun, that by the end, we were quizzing our guide on the cost of their part ownership schemes, which actually, are pretty affordable and definitely worth considering, I’m just not sure our lovely accountant could cope with a ‘company jetski’

Hudson's Hall of Fame

Romcom queen kate hudson is back doing what she does best in something borrowed, which was released in cinemas on friday, may 6. The pregnant star talks about dancing on bars, why she's not looking for crazy passion in her relationships anymore and how she copes under the glare of the spotlight.

152

It's cheering to see members of Hollywood royalty embracing clothing with the comfort factor. Take Kate Hudson, for example. She might be the daughter of Goldie Hawn, stepdaughter of Kurt Russell and a one-time Oscar nominee, but that doesn't stop her walking into the room wearing a simple white shirt, black vest top and that great sartorial statement - leggings. Blonde with blue eyes, Hudson boasts the kind of Californian glow befitting a golden girl of Hollywood - and that's despite not feeling on top form.She even groans as she sits down. For those who've missed the headlines, the 32-year old is six months pregnant (the dad is Muse frontman Matt Bellamy) and the pregnancy's causing her to get up at 6am every morning. She manages a grin and there's a hint of the mega-watt smile she shares with her mum - one that's served to beguile audiences in films such as How To Lose A Guy In Ten Days, which earned more than ÂŁ100 million at the box office. That winsome smile has had to put in overtime in her latest film Something Borrowed. Based on the bestselling novel of the same name, it tells the tale of two lifelong friends, the introverted and loyal Rachel, played by He's Just Not That Into You's Ginnifer Goodwin and the charismatic but relentlessly self-absorbed Darcy, played by Hudson. "Simply put, Darcy is all about Darcy. She's the kind of person who says things we wish we could say, who doesn't hold back and thrives on being the centre of attention," says Hudson, who says she's nothing like her character.

Well, actually, that's not entirely true. Like Darcy, she's been known to dance on a bar before. "Of course," she exclaims. "I wouldn't say on tables, I'm not that kind of a girl. But yeah, on a bar, who hasn't?" Baby bump allowing, Hudson loves to dance, and has done since she was a child. She even got to show off her moves in show-stopping 2009 musical Nine. But unlike Hudson, Darcy isn't just an exhibitionist; she's the archetypal alpha female. "Darcy thinks she's perfect because everything has always gone the way she's wanted it to," she says. This could prove a turn-off to a predominantly female audience, so all credit to Hudson for making her so watchable. "Darcy walks a fine line between what's funny and endearing and that could easily become unlikeable, which is always fun," she continues, flashing that grin again. "We would have days where I'd look at [her co-star] Ginny and go, 'Oh my God, what am I doing? She's just horrible!'" As with all good romcoms, there are messy romantic entanglements. In this instance, the reliable Rachel admits her true feelings to Darcy's fiance Dex, [played by newcomer Colin Egglesfield] in the wake of her 30th birthday. It's a moment of spontaneity, which brings into question the notions of loyalty and friendship. "I'm a girl's girl," says Hudson emphatically when asked what kind of friend she is. "I've got a group of about six girlfriends that are really close and I feel like we can do anything when we come together." Unlike the characters in the film (and rumour has it, Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox) she's


When you're single, you're with a different person every week, sometimes people you don't even know

never found herself fighting with a friend over a man. "I've heard about it though. I've had friends who have had real fallings-out over boys. What a horrible situation to find yourself in," she says. "But the film does make you ask, 'If you really do love somebody, do all the rules go out the window?'" Hudson's romance with Bellamy has been pretty whirlwind, as they only met at last year's Californian Coachella music festival. Asked what love means to her, she laughs: "That's a very loaded question... Respect, honesty, partnership - like real partnership, compromise, all the great stuff. I think that's the type of love that lasts." Their baby will be Hudson's second child. She also has a seven-year-old son, Ryder, from her marriage to The Black Crowes singer Chris Robinson, which ended in 2006. She admits having a child has changed her views on love. "I think you understand what real unconditional love is," she says. "Relationships take work, where as loving your children doesn't. It becomes your big love and I've found relationships after having a child changed my focus on the kind of love I was looking for. "You're not looking for the passionate, crazy love you want when you're younger." Before Bellamy, Hudson's love life was a target of the tabloids. Her relationships with cyclist Lance Armstrong, her You Me And Dupree co-star Owen Wilson and Madonna's former squeeze Alex Rodriguez weren't enough to quench the red-tops' unquenchable thirst for tittle-tattle, so Hudson believes they made it up instead. "When you're single, you're with a different person every week,

sometimes people you don't even know. That becomes the big joke," she says with a sigh. "You learn not to pay attention to it because it becomes so ridiculous," she stresses. Not that she allows the rumour-mill to affect her private life "because it's all lies", she exclaims. Your real life, on a day-to-day basis, is so far removed from what is printed, discussed or talked about." Pointing to a motley crew of photographers outside, she says: "Look at the paparazzi hanging out over there. You know all they want you to do is slip on a banana skin. Why is that?" But she's willing to concede that it's all part of the Hollywood machine, or "the beast", as she refers to it. And to a certain extent she considers she "got lucky" by bearing witness to her parents' fame. On the other hand, she also faced accusations of nepotism and has talked about feeling the need to apologise for her success in the early days. In 2001, however, she earned an Oscar nomination for her role as 'band aid' Penny Lane in Cameron Crowe's Almost Famous, which silenced critics. And even if she hadn't earned an Academy nod, you get the feeling Hudson would still be forging ahead. "I never thought I'd be doing anything else," she says. "From singing, dancing and performing, to playing different characters and being a storyteller, it's just what I love to do. "We make movies and it's an amazing circus to be involved in. The relationships you forge and the creative atmosphere we enjoy far supersedes everything that comes afterwards."

Extra time â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Kate Hudson Kate Garry Hudson was born on April 19, 1979, in Los Angeles. Hudson's biological father is the musician Bill Hudson who she's never been close to. Her style icons are Julie Christie and Anita Pallenberg in the Seventies, as well as Kate Moss who she describes as "spectacular". Hudson loves shopping but the focus is usually for furniture for her home these days, as she loves interior design. One of the reasons she was drawn to Something Borrowed was because of her character's downfall in the second novel, Something Blue, which she hopes will be turned into a movie. 153

whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on tv A rundown of some of the best new TV seriesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; starting over the next fortnight. Get your Sky+ ready!

four rooms In a brand new eight-part series, four of Britain's top dealers in art, antiques and collectibles wait in four separate rooms, each prepared to spend their own personal fortunes if the right item comes through their door. From memorabilia to a mummified mermaid, art to antiques, members of the public have come to sell their prized possessions hoping to walk away with a life-changing amount of money. But to do so,

they have to work out when to sell and when to see the next dealer, because once they leave the room the offer is off the table for good. In a gripping game of risk, ambition, and sometimes plain delusion, the sellers give everything they've got to persuade the dealers that their treasure is the real deal, while the dealers have to figure out what the real value of the item is. This test of nerves will no doubt dash some hopes, but for others, could lead to a bigger win than they could have ever of dreamt of.

different people within it. This carefully crafted, sensitive and revealing documentary uses police interviews with the offenders, first hand testimonies from family members of the offenders and the parents of a possible victim. Chilling unseen police evidence from a multi-force inquiry is pieced together in an attempt to understand how Colin Blanchard persuaded four women - all mothers - to abuse children. The film also reveals the painstaking police investigations in Manchester, Liverpool, Nottingham, Plymouth and Portsmouth that led to five arrests and subsequent successful convictions.

To understand the emotional and psychological fall-out for those most intimately affected by the ring, the film makers hear from parents whose child attended the Little Ted's Nursery in Plymouth, where Vanessa George worked. Unaware of the secret lives of their loved ones, the perpetrators' relatives also talk candidly about how the legacy of abuse continues to affect them. The husband of one of the offenders gives detailed insight into the trauma of betrayal. And in another powerful interview a close relative of one of the female abusers - a young woman who has been forced into hiding - describes how she was driven from her home after the news was made public.

Prince Philip at 90 24 may, 8pm, itv1

In this brand new documentary for ITV1, Alan Titchmarsh talks to HRH The Duke of Edinburgh as he approaches his 90th birthday. They discuss his childhood, becoming consort to the Queen, family life and his many and varied interests. Alan also talks to HRH The Princess Royal about her father and memories of family life. The programme charts Prince Philip’s life, with archive footage, photographs and contributions from his family, friends and experts on the Royal Family, including Gyles Brandreth and royal biographer Hugo Vickers. This documentary offers a fascinating insight into the life of the longest serving consort in British history, who has earned a reputation for forthrightness thanks to his energetic, sometimes gruff, straight talking demeanour. Prince Philip of Greece and Denmark was born on June 10 1921, eighth in line to the Greek throne. When he was 18 months old his family were forced to flee Greece for a life in exile with his family in France. Talking about his childhood Prince Philip tells Alan: “I had four sisters and we lived in a small house just outside Paris.” Alan asks him: “Were you French speaking then, or English speaking?” Prince Philip says: “French and English, we had an English nanny. The family spoke about four languages, it was a bit confusing. You started off a conversation in English and somebody couldn’t remember a word, so they said it in French, so it went on in French, then they went on in Greek and then German and this went on all the time. It was a really very jolly life.” Prince Philip was sent to Cheam boarding school, when he was eight, and spent his school holidays with his royal relatives, amongst them were his cousins Lady Patricia Mountbatten and

Lady Myra Butter. Lady Mountbatten recalls: “He was boisterous and full of fun.” While Lady Butter remembers her cousin as being “very boyish, but great fun and very kind he hasn’t really changed much as a person at all, I don’t think”. Prince Philip enrolled at Dartmouth Naval College in 1939, and in the same year, King George VI, Queen Elizabeth and their two daughters, made an official visit to the college. The new cadet was assigned to look after the young princesses during their visit. The programme explains that this seemingly insignificant event would have far-reaching consequences for Philip and the 13-year-old Elizabeth. Lady Patricia Mountbatten tells the programme: “I think early on she was quite smitten, quite early on, when they first met. Of course his background was not very different at all from the Queen’s background so he wasn’t overawed or worried by it.” The wedding between Princess Elizabeth and Prince Philip took place in 1947, and Prince Philip took up a naval post in Malta. Princess Elizabeth stayed with him there for extended periods and the programme notes that for the first and only time they were able to enjoy life as a young married couple, dining with friends, visiting local shops and going dancing. Lady Mountbatten tells the programme: “I think that was probably the nearest time to a relaxed rather normal life that certainly the Princess experienced, being a naval wife.” When Princess Elizabeth became the Monarch in 1952, Prince Philip gave up his naval career, Alan asks how he felt about this at the time. Prince Philip says: “Well I mean how long is a piece of string? I don’t know how difficult it was, it was naturally disappointing. I had just been promoted to Commander and the fact was that

the most interesting part of my naval career was just starting. But then equally, if I stopped and thought about it, being married to the Queen, it seemed to me my first duty was to serve her in the best way I could.” Alan also asks Prince Philip about his role as a father, and Prince Philip tells him: “You have a sort of routine. During the day we’d always see them at the same time and made sure we were at home, either here or Balmoral or Sandringham during the holidays.” Princess Anne tells Alan: “As a family, I rather surprisingly hear my children say that I was quite a good mother and I think I would say that with spades to my father. He set an extraordinary example, he put some work into it. He made efforts to be there, particularly I think on a regular basis at bedtime. That degree of continuity, when you’re not going to be around all the time, there are some periods when you need to have continuity and that was one of them. And that was one that could make a real impact, bedtime stories are things that children probably don’t get so much these days but they were important in my day.” The programme explores Prince Philip’s many interests including the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme and the Prince Philip Designers Prize. Prince Philip tells Alan how his interest in design led to his involvement in the design of the Royal Yacht Britannia, which was decommissioned in 1997 after 43 years in service. He tells Alan that he didn’t agree that this was the right thing to do, saying that Britannia was: “Sound as a bell, and she could have gone on for another 50 years:” With reference to Prince Philip’s life, Alan asks him: “When you look back, is there anything you would have done differently?” Prince Philip says: “Well yes, I would rather have not made the mistakes I did make, but I’m not telling you what they were.” 157


scott and bailey 29 may, 9pm, itv1

Scott & Bailey is a new six-part series that explores the personal and professional lives of Detective Constable Rachel Bailey (Suranne Jones) and Detective Constable Janet Scott (Lesley Sharp) The two women are members of Manchester Metropolitan Police’s Major Incident Team, whose task is to track down killers. They enjoy a warm, engaging, robust friendship. Scott & Bailey are both competent, ambitious women, passionate about getting the job done

effectively. Neither of them suffer fools. They draw on each other’s strengths every day to deal with extreme and horrific crimes. D.C. Rachel Bailey works in Syndicate 9, a police unit in Manchester which specialises in murder. She’s a great copper but lousy at relationships. We meet her as she’s being publically dumped by boyfriend Nick Savage over dinner. He tells her that he’s just moved on. Rachel gives Nick both barrels but we can see she’s really hurt, especially when she suspects he’s seeing someone else. Best friend, and colleague D.C. Janet Scott is there, as ever, to pick up the pieces at work the

next day. Their boss, D.C.I. Gill Murray, takes the team through their new murder case. A young, married Turkish girl, Emel, has been killed in her home, and the murder has clearly been made to look like suicide and there’s no evidence of a breakin. Rachel throws herself into the investigation, soon discovering that Emel’s husband, Gokhan, was having an affair, with a young woman from Leeds named Mana. But Mana calmly refutes all accusations that she intended to harm Emel. Rachel takes a huge risk in a tense interview with Mana. Has she jeopardised the case, or will her


high-stakes approach get results? Meanwhile Rachel is using her police privileges to carry out her own investigation into Nick, and is horrified to discover he’s married with two children. Rachel is provoked into making a rash and dangerous threat. Janet has her own shock in store when she’s contacted by Geoff Hastings, brother of an old school friend, Veronica, who was abducted and murdered when they were still at primary school. Geoff asks Janet if she’ll re-open the case. Janet has always been haunted by Veronica’s death and agrees to take another look at the evidence.
