Hello readers an welcome to what may be my last intro' piece as my lovely wife and editor will be back in the game very soon. We're all recovering this week after facing a fun but battering time on the donuts, wake boards and banana boats in a lake in the New Forest! See our review later in the magazine for all the details, it was cracking fun which I firmly recommend you all to try. On a more global note, as the situation in Greece looks to become more untenable as time moves on, there seems only one solution which has been somewhat ignored by european decision makers. If they were to group up Greece's unaffordable debt for sale on the open Market and offer in exchange new and more affordable long term bonds from a (presumably) reformed Greek government,

it would enable Greece to continue in a more realistic structure whilst also making some reasonable long term gains for private investors with no risk to our own countries and the horrible domino effect that Greece's default could have. If that's all a bit heavy for you though as you sit enjoying House with a sugary latté, then we've a got a little feature on which celebs looked best in the same dress. Not only that, but some great features on all sorts of other things including a special wedding feature starting on page 132. Next issue, i'll let you know how i got on in Sunday's charity cycle ride (if I'm still alive!) Enjoy the read and wish me luck! Chris Harman MD

Dorset, still the perfect lifestyle choice market in the county. From the high-profile properties of Sandbanks, to the contemporary luxury of Poole Quay to charming rural properties, Dorset has always been popular.

Tim Buckley Head of Southern Region 01722 426881 With offices across Dorset, Savills has made and continues to make a tremendous impact across the county. The teams specialise in the sale of quality property across a broad range of values. This expertise helps us in identifying changes in the residential property

“Historically, Bournemouth, Poole and Canford Cliffs have always seen a strong demand from second home buyers,“ comments Director Tim Buckley. “Indeed in 2007 Bournemouth had the highest average apartment values across the South Coast. However, since the downturn, the regional markets have witnessed clear changes. Some of those which were boosted by discretionary buyers of second homes using equity generated in the financial sector are now seeing values remain significantly below peak.” He continues, “In addition, interestingly, for properties across the spectrum of

values, 20% of our buyers are from Bournemouth, yet 33% are from Poole with the remainder coming from the rest of the UK, with London taking the lions share. If we look at the prime regional properties we have marketed since 2008, our purchasers tended not to be located in Bournemouth, but from further a field in Dorset or other parts of the UK. Dorset is still seen as a lifestyle relocation market, particularly for those wishing to leave cities such as London. With more and more people choosing to work from home, Savills Residential Research estimates 15-20% of buyer demand in counties such as Dorset comes from those looking for lifestyle relocation.” “Taking these factors into consideration, we have decided to consolidate our offering on the Dorset coast by bringing our teams under one roof. Located in Canford

Cliffs, our team is equally best placed to continue to offer our expertise to clients. The office will continue to provide a link to Savills in Wimborne and Wiltshire and Hampshire, creating a network of professionals who can offer the best service. The combination of the strong Savills brand and our wealth of local market knowledge will make it possible for us to further develop the existing business and enhance the service we offer to our current and future clients.” Dorset continues to offer a wealth of opportunities. From large country manors with spectacular grounds to state-of-the-art houses with breathtaking coastal views, there is a huge variety in this region. Whilst many buyers are needs driven, for example growing families or schooling, the attraction also lies in the enhanced quality of living that’s on offer here.

Bouncy, bouncy, it’s childsplay!

Stepping out onto the slackline for the first time it quickly becomes clear it’s not actually that easy to walk the Maverick line, but it sure is a lot of fun. Across the Sandbanks slackline park, other beginners are balanced precariously on one foot with the other leg stuck out like a starfish as a counterbalance, while they concentrate on keeping upright, all with identical huge smiles plastered across their faces. The urban sport of slacklining involves walking, balancing and even flipping on a stretchy line, similar to a tight rope but more flexible. Walking across a slackline is like bouncing across a very thin trampoline and does wonders to improve balance, core strength and coordination. This new fitness craze has travelled from America across the Atlantic to Britain’s shores and found a new headquarters at Maverick Industries in Poole. Maverick is made up of a team of skaters and surfers who discovered slacklining as an enjoyable way to improve balance and it very quickly became ingrained in their lifestyles. The Maverick slackline was developed to fulfill the growing demand for a quality product in the UK. The new Maverick slackline has arrived just in time to keep kids in line during the summer holidays. This cool bit of kit instantly transforms a park into an adventure playground. It takes only minutes to set up and can be rigged up over rivers, in gardens, beaches, picnics and parks. Just secure it between two anchor points, for example between two trees and start slacking.  Remember to protect the bark with either a folded towel, a piece of carpet or underlay placed under the line. Maverick has recently been working with Richard Nicholson at Poole Council Leisure Services to create the UK’s first purpose built Slackline park. Situated in the millionaire’s playground of Sandbanks, the Slackline park will be open all year round for wannabe slackers to hone their skills against the backdrop of the stunning blue flag beach. Bournemouth Council will be following suit shortly with plans to install a slackline park on the beach in Boscombe, outside Urban Reef and Sorted Surf Shop. This is on track to open in time for the school holidays. Over the summer, the Maverick team slackers will be on hand to teach the basics of balancing on a line as well as the fundamental tricks of the trade. Every time a beginner comes off the line at the slackline park they get straight back up to see if they can get that little bit further - the addictive nature of the slackline gives it a universal appeal. It is awe-inspiring to see the experienced slackers demonstrating just how far you can push this sport; they appear to dance across the line, executing seat drops, 'lazy boy' chest bounces and 'Sticky Indian' combos while landing the occasional back-flip to the audible gasps of the onlookers. Suddenly, the end of the line doesn’t seem that far away... Russell Holbert, Director of Maverick Slacklines says: “We are looking forward to seeing the local parks and beaches covered with our orange slacklines this summer, as friends and families have a great time competing with each other to see who can walk the line.” Maverick are offering introductory sessions to local schools, for more information visit A 15m Maverick slackline retails at £48.99. Maverick are offering HOUSE readers a FREE slacker t-shirt with orders placed in July. All you have to do is mention HOUSE magazine when ordering and state size required.

Put up, Shut up Driving through the many tree lined streets of Dorset, it is clear to see that the latest trend to hit Dorset homes are window shutters, and we’re not surprised. Providing a sophisticated and stylish first impression from the outside and a practical yet equally smart, impressive back drop to rooms internally, shutters are the 21st century must have product. Here, Dorset based shutter company South Beach Shutters tells us why shutters are the way forward. Shutters are fast becoming the window dressing choice of many. Not only do they look fabulous, they offer a range of other benefits too...

REDUCED HEATING COSTS Closing shutters at dusk will help insulate windows and dramatically reduce heating bills.


HEALTH BENEFITS Although dust will settle on the shutter louvres, it is far easier to clean them than traditional blinds and curtains. The dust cannot penetrate the hardwood shutters, whereas heavy curtains and most types of blinds store dust in their fibres. This in turn creates a breeding ground for dust mites, which can cause allergies and itching. When compared to traditional window coverings, interior shutters are very low maintenance, requiring a simple wipe down every now and then.

SECURITY AND PRIVACY Due to the flexible design of indoor shutters, the shutter can be split in two sections, with the bottom section of louvres able to be angled to ensure you and the contents of your room remain private, whilst the top section of shutter louvres can be opened to allow light into the room. This is an added advantage for those living adjacent to a roadside and wanting to keep unwelcome attention out.

NOISE REDUCTION The timber properties of interior shutters act as a natural noise barrier. When the panels and louvres are fully closed the shutters create a timber barrier which acts like a secondary glaze, in aiding noise reduction. Of equal benefit, when windows are opened to allow breeze to circulate, unlike blinds which have been known to rattle around a bit, interior shutters are virtually noise-free. The integral magnets fitted in the frames ensure the panels don’t bang and clank in the wind like conventional blinds.


VERSATILITY Shutters are made to the millimetre, which means that they can be made to fit any awkward shaped window such as circles, arches and gables. Our shutters can be manufactured in a wide range of louvre sizes, paint colours and stains, with the option to custom colour match to your interior decor.

Full light control and UV protection Shutters for house windows give a level of light control which is superior to any other window covering. The shutter louvres can be angled accordingly to control the level of light entering your room. If more light is required the panels can be opened back fully. By angling the light upwards, the shutter louvres will help protect furniture and flooring by filtering the sun’s harmful UV rays away, however the shutters themselves will not fade as all our shutters are finished with a UV protective paint or stain.

South Beach Shutters are the only local company to supply the exclusive Kelly Hoppen Shutters. Kelly is a shutter convert and says: “I have reached a point in my design journey, where I prefer less on a window.

It’s a job that carries the enormous responsibility of the public’s expectations. Regardless of any great contribution to mankind that Michael Fish may make in the future he will always be known as the public face of the unexpected storms in 1987 that caused so much damage to the South of England. Unexpected except by that lady who called the BBC to express her concerns only to be told to not to worry (I wonder if she ever called back to say “I told you so?!).I know from my own experience of reading the weather on the radio that people take delight in calling or emailing to correct you if your forecast is incorrect. I have broadcast the weather daily for half my life but I can’t remember the point where it actually became important. It’s just one of those things that come with age. Long range predictions did not concern me until I had a lawn to mow or children that might need covering in sun cream before school in the morning. Weather is the ultimate conversation starter for people who have no common point of reference. Random strangers walking dogs, the postman or even the man in the call centre who rings from my bank (usually 6000 miles away in Delhi) will all use the weather as a way of breaking the ice. Technology has a lot to answer for and now it is so easy to access the information. My first act in the morning after switching off the alarm on my phone is to open the Met Office application which gives me the forecast for that day. Someone should develop an app that will not only wake you with an alarm but then tell you what the weather will be like in your area, what the roads are like and the top stories of the day while you snooze. Actually forget about that or it will do me out of a job! I think moving to the South has made me more aware of the weather too.Now I live on “The Southern Rivera” when I see the predictions are positive I want to make the most of it and take the kids to the beach or out for a picnic in The New Forest. Our national obsession with the weather begins as children when we write postcards from our holiday to friends and family. It always includes a weather report. As we get older we start to pay attention to what the weather is doing at home while we are away. The weather gives me some of my favourite feelings. Throwing open the curtains on a bright morning and the smell that follows rainfall on a hot day are two of the great sensations that the weather can bring. People often moan about the unpredictability of the British weather but can you imagine for a moment how dull life would be if we had the same weather all the time? We would have nothing to talk about for starters!

The Flashy Converted Townhouse From the outside it may look like a typical townhouse, but this property's traditional façade hides an ultra contemporary interior.

Photos by Rex Features

Owner Maximillion Cooper, founder of the annual Gumball 3000 rally, first spotted the then run-down 1850s terrace townhouse, on Westbourne Grove in west London, in 2006. He brought the four-storey, four bedroom property, which hadn't been touched since the 1970s, for £1.6m from an elderly couple. He then set about ripping out much of the interior, leaving only the façade standing, with the aim of creating a contemporary home within the confines of a traditional structure. The end result is a Sleek, Bauhaus-inspired design that ranges over six floors and covers some 2,396 sq ft of space. After a two year renovation project, the final property, now on the market for £5.3m, boasts five bedrooms, a huge basement kitchen, a raised ground-floor reception area and a 20ft-long patio garden and dining area.




This allows the sleek kitchen to open directly onto the courtyard, which features a dining table and seats. Meanwhile, the lighting scheme is also unusual, with no bulbs visible anywhere in the property. Instead each room features illuminated coving, which creates strips of light to frame doorways, floor and mirrors. After you first enter the property a hall gives way to the raised 33ft by 16ft reception room. At one end is the double height void looking down to the kitchen and the top half of the huge sliding glass door.


The space is decorated with Florence Knoll sofas and a vintage Gucci chrome and glass table. Here, as in the rest of the property, the whitewashed walls are warmed through the use of natural materials, such as thick oak slabs for shelving and grey laval stone flooring. The same stone has also been used to create the staircases that connect the reception room to the other areas of the house. Taking its down brings you to the lower ground floor kitchen/ dining space.

There are also a number of experimental architectural tricks . For example, a 125 sq ft sliding door covers half the width of the rear of the house, rising over two floors from the kitchen through a two-storey void to the reception area The large glass pane is 1.4in thick and weighs 1,323lb; according to Cooper it is the largest of its kind to be used in any house in London. At the simple touch of a button it draws back, concealing itself within a wall, and bringing the outdoors indoors by opening the reception room and kitchen to the elements.

Taking the stairs up brings you to the first floor, which is completely given over to the master bedroom suite complete with a wall of white fitted wardrobes and dark wooden flooring. Meanwhile, the adjacent en-suite bathroom is decked out in natural stone and there is also a small terrace area at one end and a balcony at the other The second floor is home to two bedrooms and a family bathroom, while the final bedroom can be found on the 3rd floor.

Five minutes with... Claudia Winkleman

Claudia Winkleman discusses her new Channel Four show King Of... motherhood and why she'll be watching this year's Strictly Come Dancing: It Takes Two from the sofa Claudia Winkleman is best known as the presenter of series including Strictly Come Dancing: It Takes Two, Film 2011, Hell's Kitchen and Art School. She also hosts The Radio 2 Arts Show.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR NEW SERIES KING OF...? This is a game I have played ever since I was tiny. I think it was once called Favourites - that's what I call it when I play it with my kids - and it's very good on holiday if you've been with someone forever just to turn around to them and say, 'What's the king of biscuits?' I was playing it vehemently with some friends who were having a fight about what was the king of roasts, and I was shouting, 'It's chicken, it's chicken!' at the top of my voice. One of the friends, who'd been arguing for roast pork, turned round and said it should be a TV show. I was like, 'Don't be ridiculous, no one will watch.'

WHAT CONVINCED YOU IT COULD BE A SERIES? I met a lovely boy called Justin from Channel 4, and he was like, 'Look love, we're never going to make this, but let's have a cup of tea anyway.' I said to him, 'Fine, but just for the record - king of condiments?', and an hour later we were debating ketchup versus horseradish as if our lives depended on it. So then he decided we could make a few. That's the game essentially - king of city breaks, king of words, king of haircuts, king of cereals, you could go on and on.


as far as I'm concerned it might be the recorder, and I've always had a penchant for the harp.' So there are some things that you will feel more strongly about than others.

WEREN'T YOU TEMPTED TO START YOUR MATERNITY LEAVE EARLY RATHER THAN LAUNCHING A NEW SERIES? I have to say it's properly hats off to Channel 4 because I don't think anyone has ever hired anyone this pregnant to do a new series before in the history of ever. When they said they'd make it, I did point out that I was pregnant and should we speak in January or February, but they said that if it was all right with me, we'd just crack on. I was like, 'But I'm the size of a mansion block and my chin is covered in butter because that's all I'm eating' but they said they didn't mind, and I love them for that. Also, I want to take all my maternity leave when the pony or goat or whatever it is has come out.



The best subjects are the ones where you have a real opinion, because there is no right or wrong. Well there is - I am right and everybody else is wrong. But I was at Radio 2 the other day and mentioned the king of musical instruments to a couple of people, and they were shouting, 'It's not the piano, it's the guitar!' I said, 'Listen,

INo, because the baby will just be too little. A lot of people were like, 'Have you not considered just taking it with you?' and I said, 'Have you ever had a baby?' I do love It Takes Two so much, and it still hasn't sunk in that I won't be doing it, but it will be nice to have a fresh face on it. I can't wait to watch somebody else do it.

LAST AUTUMN, YOU WERE PRESENTING STRICTLY, FILM 2010 AND YOUR RADIO 2 SHOW. HOW DID YOU FIT IT ALL IN? It was a bit bonkers. I don't think I'd do all those shows again in a hurry at the same time, but I couldn't give any of them up. Film 2010 was my dream job and I'd never want to leave It Takes Two unless I absolutely had to, and I didn't want to give my Radio 2 show up, so I thought I'd just work really hard for three months. Then the rest of the time when you don't see me, I'm just literally in bed. I don't do anything else.

WHAT DO YOU LOOK FOR IN PROJECTS? I just have to be passionate about them. If I care, then I'm in. King Of... is something I've been playing forever, so it was mine and it made sense. And the Film show is brilliant I cried when they gave it to me. Of course, I'd still prefer it if Jonathan Ross was doing it, but if he couldn't then I was very happy for it to be me.

WHAT'S THE KING OF CRISP FLAVOURS? Prawn cocktail. I don't like a posh crisp, I don't accept gammon and mustard or any of that. But king of savoury snacks is a very different question, and I could not be more serious about this topic if I tried. The king of savoury snacks is Monster Munch.

House columnist and local PR guru Liz Lean talks about the prospect of summer

I knew the solstice month was going to be an eventful one and quite a rollercoaster it turned out to be, but we have hit July alive and kicking, ready for the usual craziness that becomes Sandbanks in the school holidays. Over the past month, we have had some real treats in the entertainment stakes and a bit of nostalgia thrown into the mix. Well done to Lighthouse for bringing quality performance out of their own environment and into our beautiful open spaces. We enjoyed an outstanding version of Shakespeare’s ‘As You Like It’ in Upton Country Park’s Walled Garden, performed by the Globe Theatre touring company. Amazing acting, music and humour right on our doorstep. I was proud to see my two children enjoy the whole experience despite the cold, the wind and a couple of typically British showers – they admitted to not knowing what was going on half the time but loved it all the same. Use it or lose it I say; indulge your creative self and ensure it keeps coming our way! We are working with Julia’s House to create a very special Autumn Ball in the same Walled Garden this September which is very exciting. This certainly deserves my blatant plug of the month; we hope it will raise excellent funds and profile for the charity. Early bird tickets have been released so call 01202 607400 and save £15 per ticket if booked before 29th July. It certainly will be a party not to be missed. On quite a different theme, and on the eve of my birthday, we headed to Mr Kyps for a blast from the past with Adam Ant (yes, the real one). I’d heard from an old school friend that he was worth seeing, so out of curiosity I dragged a couple of friends to Parr Street to check it out; certainly something different for a Monday evening. My memory is so shocking these days, stored with too much information, that I can’t remember what I did yesterday. Yet, stick Adam Ant on a stage and I can remember every lyric to ‘Kings of the Wild Frontier’ for some bizarre reason. Adam and the Ants was the first band I saw live, aged 10 or 11 in 1981 at Cornwall Coliseum, St Austell, with my big sister. I proudly wore my white stripe across my nose and felt very grown-up indeed. Some 30 years later, I still love the ‘pirate punk’ from this man and he’s trying really hard to be cool in his mid 50’s. However, I did feel a touch of maternal affection for him as he finally appeared on stage after the big drum-roll build up, in his statutory military jacket and pirate hat…yet with little bifocal glasses all steamed up. It was hot in there, but Johnny Depp never has that problem does he? I felt liberated that now at last, albeit surrounded by other mums from the school gate, I could confidently jump and snarl in the thrust of the crowd to ‘Antmusic’, something I was too timid to do at age 10. It was a fine birthday moment indeed and so glad it sold out within 24 hours of the tickets going live; again - use it, or lose it. After all this frivolity, it has unfortunately left me to announce the sad news that our dear friend Zennor, our family dog who I have often mentioned, suddenly passed away this month. A shock to us all, she collapsed very suddenly in her favourite place, our surf shop in Sandbanks. A very treasured member of the family for some impressive 14 years 8 months, Zennor is missed desperately, not only by us, but many from the Sandbanks community of which she played a very important part. So many people have popped in to express their sadness and we are grateful that this very special rescue pup, of no defined breed, has left her mark in such a big way. The Peninsula simply won’t be the same without her. I hope your month ahead is balmy and fully beach-barbecued… ’til next time. Bests, Liz

Gardening â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Heavenly Herbs Tips on growing herbs in your garden plus, find out what else needs doing in the garden this week.

MINT Mint grows virtually anywhere, but if you are creating a herb garden, grow it in a pot or it will invade everything else in its path. If you want your herb garden to look more formal, consider planting dwarf hedges of rosemary or lavender around the edges, or to divide beds. Lavender can simply be sheared after flowering to keep it looking neat and tidy, but don't cut into old wood or it won't grow back. Standard bays placed in pots either side of a front door or other entrance can create a formal, stylish look and you can also snip the leaves off for adding to pasta sauces and casseroles. When designing your herb garden, remember that prostrate varieties such as Corsican mint, many thymes and marjorams form mats of pretty foliage to cascade over edges and fill gaps in paving. And don't think you have to reserve a whole plot just for herbs. You can interplant them in your border to add colour and texture. Clumps of chives, which produce pretty purple flower balls, and sage, with its subtle leaf colours, are ideal for this.

BASIL Basil, which tastes so much better if you grow it yourself than if you buy it from the supermarket, is a tender annual used in much Mediterranean cooking and loves the sunshine. It's best sown into seed trays or modules in a greenhouse and then hardened off and transplanted into a sheltered, sunny spot when all danger of frost has passed. It does well in pots on sun-baked patios but should be watered whenever dry and the growing tips pinched out regularly to encourage bushy growth and delay flowering. If you are using it, harvest the leaves at the tip of the plant to encourage further bushy growth at the sides. Sweet basil and bush basil are the common types grown, but you could also try cinnamon basil, anise basil and lemon basil.

Best of the rest Rock gardens, with gritty, well-drained soil, are also a perfect setting for low-growing herbs such as thyme, of which there are endless varieties, many of which have variegated leaves and produce small flowers in summer. Flat-leaf parsley is much more popular these days than the curly-leaf variety because of its more intense flavour. Usually grown as an annual, it can be sown thinly outdoors in rich, moist soil in late spring and again in late summer for succession over winter. Try 'Giant Italian' for good flavour. Perennials including chives, sorrel, fennel and mint should come up year after year. Annual herbs which need to be raised from seed each year include dill, coriander, chervil and borage. These are best germinated in a greenhouse in spring. The majority of herbs thrive in sunny, sheltered spots. If you only have a semi-shaded spot available, try growing scented lemon balm, which can be used to flavour sauces for chicken and fish, lovage, a hardy perennial which has a flavour similar to celery and angelica, a giant herb growing to several metres which can be used to flavour cakes and cooked fruit.

Margaret, 75, living with cancer My day didn’t start too well. Everything had got on top of me and I felt really low. When I called the Macmillan Support Line, I didn’t know where to start. But somehow they helped me find the words. Just talking honestly about how I felt was such a relief. Now I don’t have to cope with the bad days on my own.

If you thought wedding fever had died down, well hold on to your hat. The battle of the big white dresses has only just begun. This summer sees a bumper turnout of high-profile brides, with vintage vixen Lily Allen on June 11, clothes horse Kate Moss on July 2 and the 'other' slightly more relaxed royal wedding of Zara Phillips on July 30. While Lily has secured the couture services of designer pal Karl Lagerfeld to transform her aisle into a catwalk, all bets are off as to Moss's choice. Until earlier this year, it was assumed the job would go to her best fashion friend John Galliano, but since his alleged anti-Semitic rant it's possible the supermodel will be touting for new business.

Luckily, you don't need a designer on speed dial to find your ideal dress. Whether you want to float down the aisle in a fluffy meringue or saunter Pippa Middleton-style in a slinky number, there's a style to suit every bride. "A bride is always looking for romance," says Marguerite Hannah, designer for Alan Hannah ( "They want to be demure but look a million dollars; a dress that transforms them to their very best." So forget the husband-to-be momentarily. With all eyes on you and your frock, say 'I do' to the wedding dress of your dreams.


White hot

The Middleton effect With copycat versions soon appearing of whatever she wears in public, Kate Middleton's wedding gown was always guaranteed to inspire every woman marrying their own Prince Charming. Reminiscent of Grace Kelly's intricate lace dress, the Sarah Burton creation for Alexander McQueen has set a trend for a bevvy of bridesto-be seeking understated glamour. "Kate's dress is a great look for girls to achieve; not only is it very classic and stylish but an easy shape for most to wear," Hannah suggests. Forget backless, strapless and side splits, the demure look is the look of the moment. "There will be a trend towards brides going slightly more formal in their choice of dress, with covered arms and, of course, the use of lace," suggests bridal designer Ian Stuart ( But unlike Kate, who slipped into evening gown number two with circle skirt and diamante belt, most brides look for that one elusive dress to impress throughout the big day. "Brides are moving away from wanting a traditional wedding dress and are choosing instead to invest in more of a unique 'special' dress to take them from the ceremony to the last dance," according to bridal designer Suzannah (

Top tips – finding 'the' dress – Try on a wide variety of dresses - don't choose the first one you try on. More often than not what a girl has in mind at the beginning is not what she ends up selecting. – Experiment with one dress in every silhouette and eliminate the shapes that don't suit so you can try on more of the ones that work for you. – Choose a dress that flatters your body shape and size, for example a shorter petite girl looks great in a column dress as it elongates the shape, while larger girls looks fantastic in A-line shaped dresses. – Make sure the style of dress suits the wedding you have planned. If you're having an overseas wedding, for example, a huge dress would be too hot and difficult to pack, whereas a short dress or even bridal trouser suit could be perfect. – If you chose a plain dress you can always achieve drama via the accessories you choose.

New bridal brigade Even before the Duchess of Cambridge wowed her two billion spectators in Alexander McQueen, the mood in bridal fashion was shifting. Her dress has undoubtedly boosted the bridal power of lace and covered shoulders, with designers unveiling a similar train of thought at the recent White Gallery exhibition for 2012 - the bridal equivalent of Fashion Week. "The key trend has moved from the popular strapless look of past seasons to 'on the shoulder' with the use of straps, short sleeves and sheer necklines using lace and organza," explains Hannah. "The alluring look of showing shoulders and arms is still key, so the use of sheer fabrics is a major look for this summer. There is more use of lace and embossed and textured fabrics." Though the floor-sweeping gown is every girl's princess fantasy, you don't have to follow tradition to look sensational on your wedding day. Hannah says: "Long dresses are still far more popular than short, and there is a definite trend for longer trains and veils. "But for the hip bride and those who are marrying abroad, shorter dresses or even a Sixties-style palazzo pant jumpsuit is a great look." For autumn/winter brides, summer silhouettes and texture trends will continue but with the addition of sheer capes, jackets and faux fur throws for extra glamour.

Bride & glory Nobody wants a bad hair day or a mirror nightmare but if there's one time in your life when you need to look your beautiful best, it's your wedding day. With your closest family & friends to hand - & an over-eager photographer snapping at your heels - being a bride should be the happiest day of your life. So the last thing you want to worry about is make-up blunders.

Ensure your wedding day make-up goes without a hitch. Our experts reveal their top tips for bridal beauty. "The best wedding make-up is subtle and unobtrusive, yet reveals and enhances everything that's most beautiful about a bride's face". Whether you're being made up by your best pal or a team of professionals, ensure you've got your look prepared by way of a few trial runs. Our beauty experts offer their big day advice to ensure you're glowing inside & out.

Make-up musts

You may be a master of make-up for everyday looks, but bridal is a very different marriage of techniques and tricks. "Bridal make-up needs to have enough colour to compensate for the whiteness of the dress," explains make-up artist Bobbi Brown. "Apply your make-up as if you were going to a formal event - everything should be a bit stronger than the make-up you normally wear." To ensure your lip colour lasts throughout the 'kiss the bride' peck and beyond, Brown advises lining and filling the lips with a matching lip pencil before applying your lipstick. Beaming with love, you may have a natural glow on the day but you'll still need a touch of colour. "When choosing a blush, go for pink if you are fair and rose if you are dark. Apply it to the apples of your cheeks for a healthy glow. For a pop of colour, use a brighter shade just on the apples of your cheeks," Brown recommends. Avoid embarrassing make-up blunders during the speeches with tear-proof products. Look for waterproof and long-wearing formulas in both mascara and eyeliner to avoid smudges and streaks. Face powder is a must, according to Brown: "Set concealer and foundation with a powder puff. And don't forget to bring pressed powder in your evening bag for touch-ups throughout the day."

Ring fingers

Romantic hair

Forget the debate about summer or winter wedding, one of the biggest decisions for brides is whether to wear hair up or down. If the top of your dress is fussy, an up-do is a good option to keep the focus on your face and gown. At New York Bridal Fashion Week, hair was 'high and refined' for spring/summer. "This season balanced the hair with the big gowns," says Redken session stylist Giovanni Giuntoli. "The avant garde twist has even more height and drama this year and the sleek chignon from years past presents a new view with the croissant shape placed higher atop the head." An up-do adds instant sophistication and elongates the neck, according to Giuntoli. He advises asking a bridesmaid to hold on to a mini finishing spray for touch-ups to ensure that your style stays in place all night long. If you have a simple dress and want a more relaxed, modern look, try Giuntoli's 'end-of-day waves'. "The look is down and the waves are not tight, they're fresh," he explains. "We're trying to get away from the corkscrew for a youthful, casual after-wedding look that's flattering and flirty."

As you take your husband-to-be's hand at the altar, the last thing you want to offer him is chewed nails or a garish set of false talons. Ensure your ring finger and it's nine family members are preened to perfection. "Start thinking about the condition of your nails four to six months before the big day," advises Joanna Hansford, director of manicurists at Jo Hansford salon. "It takes six months for a new nail to grow completely, so if they are damaged in any way they have a good chance of recovering in time." Condition and hydrate your hands and nails using a hand cream and cuticle oil last thing every night for at least a month before the wedding to see happier hands. If you're addicted to nail decor, hold off excessive use of coloured nail varnishes in the run-up to your wedding. "Nail polish removal can cause nails to dry out so try not to use it more than once a week and opt for acetone-free ones," advises Hansford. "Darker colours can also stain the nail bed if used over a long period. However, if this occurs lemon juice can be used to cleanse them." As for the big day itself? Ask your manicurist to assess your nails and see whether long, short, square, oval or rounded most suits your hands and plan the shape in advance. Hansford recommends: "Natural nails always look best if you are going for a traditional wedding but if you are going for a more modern, contemporary look you could have a brighter colour but make sure it doesn't clash with your dress."


Best dressed wedding guests Take inspiration from Will and Kate's glam guestlist for your upcoming invites. HOUSE reveals how to be a wedding belle - without upstaging the bride.

While the first rule of being a wedding guest is never to outshine the bride, that doesn't mean dressing down for the occasion. With an estimated two billion people worldwide watching last week's royal wedding, the congregation temporarily transformed Westminster Abbey into a rainbow catwalk. The Queen wore lemon yellow, mother of the bride Carole Middleton opted for sky blue while Prince Harry's on-off girlfriend Chelsy Davy sported aqua green. Style leaders Victoria Beckham, Tara Palmer-Tomkinson and Samantha Cameron chose very different ensembles involving headpiece, hat and hair jewellery respectively. But their mantra was the same - let Kate Middleton have her ultimate fashion moment. So, inspired by the glamorous guest list of royalty, celebrities and dignitaries, here's a guide to how to dress to impress at those 'I do' occasions this summer.

Rules of engagement


Royal nuptials aside, unless you're attending a black tie or cocktail affair, the rules for a daytime wedding are slightly more relaxed - and you won't have an audience of billions to scrutinise your choice of hat. Take note, Princess Beatrice. "The goal is to create an outfit that's cheerful and celebratory, ideally something similar to what you'd wear to a daytime religious occasion - but dressier," explain Hillary Kerr and Katherine Power, authors of new book What to Wear, Where. With photographic evidence aplenty on any average wedding day, your outfit shouldn't become the talking point over the cutting of the cake. "The trick to getting your daytime wedding look right is really paying attention to your choice of materials," Kerr and Power advise. "Avoid super-casual fabrics at all costs, meaning no jersey, cotton, or polyester. Instead, reach for lightweight dressy fabrics like chiffon or silk, as they will give you the right hint of formality."

colour marriage

go for

Unless you've got the bride's approval, stay away from white. Pale colours can also cause problems, risking accusations of stepping into the bride's spotlight, according to Kerr & Power. "You should never wear a white dress - this includes cream, ecru, and even nude. Avoiding whiteheavy prints is imperative too. Our rule is the print cannot be 50% white or more." Black might be the choice of colour for gothic nuptials and funerals, but keep things lighter for a summer wedding. If you want a flattering dark shade, take Victoria Beckham's lead and opt for navy as an alternative. "Generally speaking, it's better to stick to cheerful colours for daytime weddings: think light and bright," say Kerr and Power. "That said, you can wear black - especially if the wedding starts early to mid-afternoon and goes into the evening. Just make sure your fabric is appropriate and add colour via your accessories."

• Light or bright colours • Dressy daytime fabrics, like silk or chiffon • Exotic-print cocktail dresses or bright/bold party dresses • Vintage-inspired dresses • Skirt suits in light bright colours • Cropped jackets or lace boleros • Dressy flat sandals • Oversized clutches, in pale colours or light neutrals

steer clear of • White • Casual fabrics like cotton, linen, jersey, polyester • Denim • Super-short hemlines • Any heels you'd wear to a nightclub • Ballet flats • Tiny, glittery evening bags • Wraparound/sporty sunglasses

Aisle walk Tread carefully with your choice of shoes for weddings. Summer nuptials can involve navigating freshly-mown lawns or sprawling gravel driveways, meaning towering heels could be a no-no. "Picking the appropriate footwear is of paramount importance, especially if the wedding is taking place outdoors on the grass or sand," warn Kerr and Power. "The best way to navigate nature is to go for a wedge. Stilettos, with their groundpuncturing skinny heels, are a perilous choice. Of course, if the day doesn't call for such adventures, you're free to wear a range of shoe styles." If you've got the height, don't be afraid to shun the heels and ensure you'll be the last one standing on the dance floor. Kerr and Power say: "Nude pumps are always at the top of our list - they're flattering and will make most party dresses feel more appropriate for daytime. "An embellished flat sandal can work, too, especially if paired with an exotic-print maxi dress for a beach wedding."

Just like Kate and Wills, Sarah O'Meara escapes city life to honeymoon like a princess. Serene St Lucia comes up trumps.

Lying flat on my back in the nose of a plane, my stomach full of bubbles, I soared towards St Lucia. Still fizzing with post-wedding excitement and a little tipsy from drinking champagne at altitude in Virgin's Upper Class, I noted this current state of stressed euphoria had become rather too normal during the last 18 months of wedding planning. It was definitely time to come down to earth and thankfully the Caribbean island I'd chosen for my honeymoon was just eight hours away. But as the kind of neurotic who asks her dinner companion to order a dish she wants on the

menu so she doesn't miss out, I couldn't decide on just the one hotel for our 10-day stay. Was it to be the luxuriously vegetative and vertiginous retreat of Ladera, nestled in the St Lucian hills overlooking the island's famous volcanic rock peaks, the Pitons; the ethnic, beach-based bliss of the colourful Anse Chastanet resort, or time at Jade Mountain hotel, a floating collection of walkways, infinity pools and pristine views, held together in an space station-style vision of architectural glamour? Of course I couldn't choose. So I opted for all three.


There was a scent of Disney magic in the air as my husband and I entered the Ladera resort. Making our way up to our Hillside Dream Suite, 1,100ft above the Caribbean sea. Like slugging deeply on a gin and tonic, the room had a medicinal effect. We succumbed our to the cool water of the room's pool (oh, yes) and then sank even deeper into unconsciousness. It was just 5.30pm St Lucian time. Waking with the sun - it's hard not to when a room has no fourth wall - we spent our first hours watching the morning light warm the pink clouds, and then flood the Pitons, two beautiful points of 250,000-year-old volcanic rock that are now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the focal point of tourism on the southern coast of St Lucia. Over dinner the following night, with the hotel owner's daughter, we discovered the original developer of the site (American yachtsman and architect John DiPol) sailed into port during the Sixties and spent a year-and-a-half walking along the densely forested ridge, overlooking the Pitons, looking for ways to design buildings with a glass-fronted view. As he cut down plants with a machete, he realised the winds blew exclusively east to west, meaning no rogue gust would ever upset a room's contents and consequently built them without windows. After a meal of blackened mahi mahi served on a sweet potato cake with pineapple relish, and grilled rack of lamb seasoned with island spices served with a rum barbecue sauce, eaten in the company of loud local frogs, we had discovered a new respect for his food and vowed to eat more on returning home. After three days of dawdling in our exotic treehouse-style room, two stunning meals and one Anti Stress Massage treatment at the Ti Kai Pose Spa (Little House of Rest) later, we were off to Anse Chastanet. Just 20 minutes along the bumpy, winding main road of St Lucia, is a resort entirely different in tone, stretching from the beach up the mountain. Vividly painted walls, bold local artwork and staff with dazzling smiles follow you around this beach-side, feelgood hotel where you only have to poke your head in the water to see a village of cartoon-like fishes going about 144

Waking with the sun â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it's hard not to when a room has no fourth wall

their business on a pink coral reef. Or a blur of saltwater if you forget to put on your complimentary snorkelling gear. Our cottage-like, whitewashed room with original painted canvases and an 180-degree openair view curving from the Pitons round to a sunset-ready horizon, was a subtle work of art. Spacious with wooden louvred windows and low, colourful, comfortable furniture, it filled with a yellow, sunny warmth every morning and was an ideal pad from which to launch ourselves towards a slightly more active section of the honeymoon. St Lucia is one of the world's premier dive sites and somehow my husband and I had both picked up the art of scuba diving during our busy lives. Producing professional-looking certification cards at the scuba centre on our first morning, we looked at each other warily. It seemed odd our first 'activity' together as a married couple should be something we'd never done together before. Heading out with the instructor for a quick refresher session, I decided that if my new hubbie did turn out to be an extreme sports fantasist, we would still have the memories of Ladera. Luckily the happy couple were still happy while giggling over a silky smooth goat curry later that day. In fact you can substitute happy for smug. After three more days of snorkelling, swimming and drinking gin at the beach (not a combination recommended by the

resort), we were ready for our final adventure: Jade Mountain. About a decade ago the architect behind Anse Chastanet, Nick Trobetzsky, decided to extend but he didn't just add a room or two. Excavating tonnes of earth out of the side of the hill just metres away from the still working resort, he planned an expression of retro luxury. On our first night floating in our infinity pool, eyes wide, drinking in the spectacle above us, we thanked our lucky stars. "If the Jetsons built a hotel, it would be like this," my partner offered, referring to Jade Mountain's bold, Frank Lloyd Wright-style curving, layered structure and its distinctly retrofuturistic vibe. "Or Charlie Sheen," I add, referring to my constant need to drink gin while holidaying in such a decadent playpen. Almost all the Jade Mountain rooms are reached by personal walkways, often tens of metres high above the ground. In the fashion of a grounded Caribbean space station, we could see fellow inhabitants following similar paths to their own rooms (sorry, sanctuaries) like tourists reporting for their daily swim, cocktail and sunset missions. Jade Mountain has no lobby or real reception. You are simply introduced to your major-domo who becomes your front desk and best friend. Whether you need a shuttle to the beach, flight times checked or restaurant reservation confirmed (it's amazing how many little jobs crop up while doing

ostensibly nothing), they're on hand and while Jade Mountain really needs no cherry, the fact that chef Jonathan Dearden is creating some truly perfect fusion food in the intimate restaurant which sits on top doesn't damage your experience. I now know how I count the ways I love my husband. It starts with Coconut Spiced King Fish and is shortly followed by Pina Colada Shrimp, Dorade Ceviche and a Local Conche curry. If all of that was always on the menu, my love would remain very strong indeed.

Review New forest water park


Guarantees to make you leave grinning from ear to ear.


When the team at HOUSE Magazine were asked to do a review at the New Forest Water Park to celebrate 20 years of trading most of us didn't even know that we had a water park locally. The New Forest Water Park is a huge man made lake just on the left hand side of the road as you drive into Fordingbridge and easily missable if you don't know its there. We arrived at 2pm and drove down the long drive along side one of their 3 massive lakes just as the sun started to come out, we walked up to the club house bar and were warmly welcomed by the owners Linda and Mark and our instructors for the day Millie and Nev. They have many different activities and we chose to have a go at the water sports side of things. We were given wet suits and life jackets and eagerly made our way down to the lakes, after our safety briefing we had a go at water skiing first, they offer lessons for beginners too, we started by holding onto a bar along side the speed boat just to get used to the feel of water skiing, after a couple of laps we were let loose on the long ropes behind the speed boats as it belted around the lakes, most of us picked it up relatively quickly with only a few wipe outs and once we had got the hang of it could not get enough, if you can ski, water skiing is easy and it doesn't hurt when you wipe out !

We also had a bash a wake boarding which was a little harder to pick up but brilliant fun, After that we went in the ringos, which basically involves sitting in a inflatable ring and being towed at speed around the lake whilst trying to hang on for dear life, it was such fun and guarantees to make you leave grinning from ear to ear. Lastly was our Banana ride, were we were told we would definitely be getting wet ! Its pretty hard to keep it upright and we had a right laugh trying to stay on it whilst cornering, then again getting back on it was pretty amusing too ! All in all this place is brilliant! I can not believe i had not heard of this hidden gem before, i was also surprised how warm the water was too. The New Forest Water Park offer an amazing array of activities including Water skiing,Wake boarding,Donut Rides,Banana Rides, Camping with fire pits, archery, team building, problem solving, raft racing, face painting, Corporate days, wedding reception venue, Barbeques, Buffets and Hog Roasts available. The campsite is for tents and caravans and they best bit is they encourage you to have your own camp fire, well camping isn't really camping with out a fire is it !

Snap! Couture clothes and celebrities are a match made in heaven. However, if they aren't careful the unwary star can quickly tumble from the heights of fabulous fashion to the depths of designer despair. And the fashion faux pas that can cause such a calamitous fall? The horror of wearing the same dress as someone else.

There can surely be no greater horror for a starlet then being snapped wearing something that someone else has already looked better, sexier and slimmer in. But when there's only so many designers looks to go around identikit stars are sometimes inevitable. When the worst happens all a fashionista can do is throw back her shoulders and ride out the inevitable comparisons. Remember, it doesn't matter who wore it first, it's all about who wore it best. Left– Cat Deeley vs Halle Berry Wearing a low cut Pucci dress, these ladies certainly have nailed red carpet style to a T, but our vote is with Cat on this one, with her tumbling natural wavy locks giving her the edge adding a suitably more feminine touch to the outfit.

I am thinking of having hair extensions but I am worried about them damaging my hair & I have heard that not all the hair is ethically sourced. There are many different types of hair extensions available the reason we chose the Racoon brand for our salon is they are the only system to have been scientifically tested to prove that they do not damage the clients hair, a unique translucent bonding formula is used to apply the extensions which ensures no damage occurs as long as they are applied by Racoon trained and certified expert and the aftercare and maintenance regime is followed having the extensions checked and rotated every 4-6 weeks which also ensures the extensions look great and last longer as hair can be reused. Racoon International also guarantees that its hair is ethically sourced they can trace all of their hair back to its origin with monies paid for the hair going back into the community. I have my hair coloured can I still have extensions done and how are they matched to my hair? Yes you can still have your hair coloured, the hairdresser just has to take care not to overlap the colour on to the bonds, colour work is best completed before the hair extension application then retouched during the rotation period often a top section of highlights can easily be done as bonds are not always applied close to partings or hairlines. They have large range of colours that can be blended to achieve your own personal colour, this just doesn’t happen with pre-bonded systems, also the Euro range of hair can be coloured using low volume (not more than 6%) peroxide so will match seamlessly. It is a good idea to give hair a break from hair dryers and straighteners on holiday anyway. During the day simple ponytails are a great way of keeping hair out of the way and can be slicked back with a protective product in addition. Is it hard to look after hair extensions? No they are easy to look after, you are given a booklet to help you keep them looking their best, Plus a maintenance and aftercare regime which is explained to you at you first consultation and recapped when you have the extensions applied. Euro and Everyday hair can be dried and styled as if they were your own. When brushing and combing you use the Racoon comb and brush to ensure the hair is kept untangled and bonds do not get matted together it is a very simple system. I am getting married later in the year and have been told my hair won’t be long enough for the style I want would hair extensions be ok for wedding hair? Yes absolutely Racoon hair extensions can be placed exactly where you need them to achieve volume length or both, as far as styling both Euro and everyday hair can be styled as normal, heated equipment should not be over 160 degrees and as the bonds are translucent and can be applied as micro bonds they need not be seen if wearing up-styles Have fun with your hair

EU nations ranked for road safety

The New Toyota Yaris breaks cover Japanese car maker Toyota has taken the wraps off its latest Yaris supermini. The third generation car will be launched in the UK this summer. Developed from an original concept of "compact outside, spacious inside," new Yaris signals Toyota further improving the clever packaging that was a hallmark of its predecessors. Its appearance will also mark a breakthrough in its segment for

affordable multimedia connectivity with the introduction of Toyota Touch & Go. Due to be standard equipment on 95 per cent of sales. It features a 6.1-inch display with touch screen technology for ease of use and functionality.

Detective Superintendent Sandra Pullman and her unconventional team of ex-detectives are back for a new series. Gerry Standing, Brian Lane and Jack Halford may bend the rules, ignore procedure, take risks and follow their hunches, but they get results. When pathologist Bob Ruxton is suspended on the grounds of negligence UCOS are forced to reopen one of his cases. Dr Bernard Fletcher, a senior palaeontologist specialising in fossil birds at the Natural History Museum, was found dead following a corporate event in the Central Hall. The original autopsy stated his death was the result of a fall, but a new examination of the post-mortem suggests he sustained a single blow to the head. According to his colleague Madeleine Simmonds, Dr Fletcher was a respected but outspoken scientist with a knack for rubbing people

The killing

Ten Mile MenU

Channel 4 premieres Century Fox Television's version of cult smash The Killing, from writer, executive producer and series showrunner, Veena Sud (Cold Case). The Killing is based on the wildly successful Danish television series, ‘Forbrydelsen' which centres around the murder of a young girl in Seattle and the subsequent police investigation. The series ties together three distinct stories around the murder and as it unfolds, it becomes clear that there are no accidents; everyone has a secret, and while the characters think they've moved on, their past isn't done with them.

A host of celebrities will go head-to-head in the second series of Ten Mile Menu; the daily cookery show that pits celebrities against one another in a unique, fast-pace culinary challenge. Singer and ‘Loose Woman’ JANE MCDONALD; Strictly Come Dancing’s CAMILLA DALLERUP; Queens of Clean, KIM AND AGGIE; This Morning’s RUTH LANGSFORD; politician and writer EDWINA CURRIE; snooker ace DENNIS TAYLOR and funny man JOE PASQUALE are among the long list of names that will take part in the series which sees two teams, comprising one novice celebrity and one professional chef, compete to produce the best three-course menu with locally sourced ingredients. Narrated by CAROLINE QUENTIN and shot on location across the UK, each team will battle it out as they take to the road in a race to gather the best ingredients from local suppliers within a 10 mile radius. Tracking down farms, fisheries, butchers and bakers, each side is in direct competition to find and source the best seasonal foods before the other team gets there. Armed with their local produce, the two teams then face each other in the kitchen for a highpressure cook-off. The winning team must serve up a taste worthy of the town, as their culinary creations go under the scrutiny of a panel made up of local residents who are proud and passionate about their regional food. Working alongside the keen celebrity cooks are some of the UK’s top chefs, including Paul Rankin, Ed Baines, Aldo Zilli, Phil Vickery, Jo Pratt, John Burton Race, Jun Tanaka and Galton Blackiston. Continues weekdays at 2pm

up the wrong way. Passionate about the planet, his views were often at odds with those of the museum, particularly their courting of sponsorship from companies such as Mondial Fuel, hosts of the corporate dinner held on the night of Fletcher's death. The investigation takes an unexpected turn when the team discovers Fletcher was embroiled in an affair with a colleague and that he was also gathering damning evidence against Mondial Fuel. With unprecedented access to the Natural History Museum, the UCOS team find themselves literally walking with dinosaurs, but it's the valuable fossils at the museum that catch Standing's eye. Could a long-forgotten gift from his father change his fortunes? Detective Superintendent Sandra Pullman is played by Amanda Redman, Gerry Standing by Dennis Waterman, Brian Lane by Alun Armstrong, Jack Halford by James Bolam, Bob Ruxton by Trevor Bannister, Madeleine Simmonds by Vicky Pepperdine, Sarah Winslow by Natasha Little and Marie Braden by Lucy Brown.

One day, nobody dies. All across the world, nobody dies. And then the next day, and the next, and the next, people keep ageing – they get hurt and sick, but they never die. The result: a population boom, overnight. With all the extra people, resources are finite. It’s said that in four month's time, the human race will cease to be viable. But this can’t be a natural event – someone’s got to be behind it. It’s a race against time as CIA agent Rex Matheson investigates a global conspiracy. The answers lie within an old, secret British institute. As Rex keeps asking: "What is Torchwood?", he’s drawn into a world of adventure, and a threat to change what it means to be human ... for ever. In The New World, the launch episode of Torchwood: Miracle Day, Agent Rex Matheson is impaled in a car crash and miraculously survives, while his analyst, Esther Drummond, sets out to discover what Torchwood is. Far away, in Wales, Gwen Cooper lives in hiding with her husband Rhys and daughter Anwen – she’s the last surviving Torchwood member and is determined to stay hidden. In Kentucky, convicted murderer Oswald Danes survives his own execution. And when Esther meets the mysterious Captain Jack Harkness, assassins are activated to kill them all...


Peter Davison and Dominic Rowan join the cast of ITV's highly successful drama Law & Order: UK for the fifth series. This time around the critically acclaimed cast, including Bradley Walsh, Jamie Bamber and Freema Agyeman have a tough, new ally in their fight for justice in the form of Senior Crown Prosecutor Jake Thorne; a gifted and uncompromising prosecutor played by Dominic Rowan (Catwalk Dogs, The Family Man). And Peter Davison (Unforgiven, Distant Shores,The Last Detective) is Henry Sharpe taking over the job of Director of the CPS. Henry is a down to earth pragmatist and a great boss who has worked with Jake Thorne before. This series sees prosecution team Alesha Phillips (Freema Agyeman) and Jake Thorne (Dominic Rowan) struggle to get to the truth behind a missing toddler and the brutal murder of a much loved couple asleep in their new home. While DS Ronnie Brooks (Bradley Walsh) and DS Matt Devlin (Jamie Bamber) investigate a hospital department with more than its fair share of untimely deaths, track down a rampaging gunman and discover the events that led to an innocent woman being gunned down in her own home – events that have serious consequences for the team. A quality array of guest stars including James Fox, Lesley Manville, Greg Wise, Sam West, Lucy Speed and Patricia Potter will join the cast for series five.

Playing Senior Crown Prosecutor Jake Thorne certainly had an effect on Dominic Rowan; he started to cross-examine in his sleep! "Apparently I wasn't cross-examining a particular witness but I was lodging 'an objection my lord' in my sleep, which I have no recall of," says Dominic. "Because of a relatively tight schedule and courtroom scenes between me and a witness, which can be four or five pages long, I was drumming the lines into my head so I had flexibility and always knew what was coming up. I must have been rehearsing it in my sleep because I wanted to be sure I could do it well. Luckily the sleep prosecuting didn't last. "In the first episode I had James Fox in the witness box and we had a four and a half page duologue which was fantastic but a bit nerve wracking. It was tricky because not only was there 'legalese' but as he was playing a doctor, medical terminology too but he was great and very professional and we just got on with it." Tonight's episode is The Wrong Man Guest starring James Fox as Dr Edward Austen and Frances Tomelty as Sister Logan. Brought into A&E with flu-like symptoms and leaving in a body bag, Suzanne Morton’s death is treated as suspicious by DS Ronnie Brooks (Bradley Walsh) and DS Matt Devlin (Jamie Bamber) as they investigate a hospital department which has had three such untimely deaths within six months. With an extremely busy A&E ward the night Suzanne died, can our heroes find the killer before the killer finds their next victim? Senior Crown Prosecutor, Jake Thorne (Dominic Rowan) is pulled in opposite directions when the chief suspect in the case claims to have

been framed for the murder by others within his department. With a conspiracy of silence permeating the hospital staff, it’s clear that there’s more to this case than meets the eye and only by penetrating the web of professional loyalties can the truth emerge. Undercover Boss returns for a third series with six new, high-profile business bosses leaving the comfort of their corner offices to surreptitiously join their own work force in an undercover mission to examine the inner workings of their company. Each week, the bosses work incognito alongside their employees, learning about the effects their decisions have on their workers and where the problems may lie within the organisation. Exposed to both the good and the bad sides of the business, these bosses will hear what their employees really think about how the company is run while discovering the talented unsung heroes who take great pride in making the company a success. After a challenging and enlightening few days it's up to the boss to reveal their true identity to their unsuspecting staff. It's an emotional and empowering climax as they explain what they have learnt, the changes they want to make and the ways in which they want to show appreciation to the employees who've been doing an outstanding job. Unrecognised talent will be rewarded but it's the poor performers who'll have nowhere to hide.



Owen McDonnell reprises his role as police sergeant Jack Driscoll in the critically acclaimed drama SINGLE-HANDED. The second series will see Jack Driscoll (McDonnell – Mount Pleasant) facing new challenges as he continues the lonely role of policing his rural terrain in the West of Ireland. Jack lives above the Garda station now. His deputy, Finbarr Colvin (David Herlihy) is opportunistic and venal which often leaves Jack working singlehanded with back-up a very long way away. There are many occasions when there is no time for the due legal process; natural justice is what Jack has to impose. And that is when he is morally tested. The community is watching him… and judging him. This series of SINGLE-HANDED promises yet

more muscular, emotionally complex stories. While Jack continues to delve into the secret life – and past – of his Connemara community in order to solve crimes he also has cause to look into his own family secrets. Matthew McNulty joins the cast as Brian, a cousin Jack never knew existed. Brought up in England, Brian arrives in Ireland to discover the truth about his family. Simone Lahbib is Brian's girlfriend Gemma who joins him on his voyage of discovery and finds herself drawn to staying in Connemara for her own reasons. Sean McGinley is Costello, a retired Guard who has taken over Mallon's bar but has more sinister ambitions and readily exploits former police colleagues in a bid to undermine Jack. And awardwinning actor Stephen Rea (Father & Son, The Shadow Line) guest stars in the first two-parter. In the first episode a dark family secret and the murder of an elderly recluse force sergeant Jack Driscoll (Owen McDonnell) to confront a brutal past while grappling with the accused, troubled delinquent Ruairi (Diarmuid Noyes). Jack is moving into the living quarters above the Garda Station when he’s called out by holiday makers whose reclusive neighbour, Seamus Devlin has been attacked and killed. Jack calls his deputy, Finbarr (David Herlihy), who is on paternity leave, following the birth of twins, to secure the scene of crime, whilst he apprehends the young suspect and brings him down the mountain to question him in the presence of local Adventure Centre Warden, Pat McGlinchey (Barry Barnes). Ruairi denies killing the old man but then Jack discovers a broken walking stick near the scene of crime, and the victim's home ransacked… The new owner of Mallons, Dennis Costello (Sean McGinley) offers to help Finbarr out of his financial predicament and gives him his first ‘taxi’ fare when he gets a call from a distressed couple staying with him. Jack runs across the couple from the UK, Brian Doyle (Matthew McNulty) and Gemma Burge (Simone Lahbib, who’ve broken down by the roadside, as Finbarr comes to their rescue. At the Adventure Centre when Jack asks Ruairi to empty his rucksack, he finds the head of a cane,

has also commissioned three one-hour highlight shows, going out on Tuesday nights in July and August. On hosting the ITV2 shows, Alexa said, "I like music, I like Camden, I like Dave Berry. It's a simple equation; iTunes Festival for ITV2 is going to be an amazing experience for everyone. I'm incredibly excited about the line up and rather pleased I get to spend my July interviewing awesome bands”. Dave added, "I’m over the moon to be back at the helm of the iTunes Festival for a fourth year. I can’t wait to make the Roundhouse my home for the month of July and welcome some stellar sounds and my new co-host Alexa in for some summer fun and games". Each live performance will be recorded and sold exclusively on iTunes. Fans can apply for free tickets at or via the iTunes Festival app available for free from the App Store on iPad, iPhone or iPod touch or at www.itunes. com/festivalapp

broken off, clearly taken from the scene of crime and highly incriminating. Jack is morally obliged to wait until the morning when a probation officer will arrive before taking a statement. Brian and Gemma come to the station seeking Jack's help; Brian's surname is Doyle and he is looking for his father, who he knows went to school in the area. He wonders whether he and Jack are related – via Jack’s mother, Eithne (Ruth McCabe). Although sceptical, Jack takes them to see his mother and it comes as a total shock to discover that Eithne did indeed have an older brother Sean, who was sent away to school when she was very young. This is the first Jack has ever heard of an Uncle Sean. And the fact that Sean was sent to a local Industrial School is even more disturbing. Why was he erased from the family history books? In an apparent bid to prevent family matters from being spread around the community by Costello, Eithne invites her nephew and his girlfriend to stay with her. And Jack promises he’ll do what he can to find out more about Brian’s father. Back at the Garda Station, looking through old Crime Registers, Jack finds an entry detailing his uncle’s arrest and six year incarceration at the age of 10. For the crime of stealing a bar of chocolate. The next morning when Jack discovers Costello has kept runaway Ruairi imprisoned in his cellar overnight, having caught him trying to break in, Jack has no choice but to take the boy into custody himself until his probation officer arrives. But when Jack and his deputy find suspicious marks on young Ruairi's back during an altercation, Finbarr insists Jack gets rid of the boy before they're falsely accused themselves. Jack learns that following his release from the Industrial School, Sean stayed in the area but Jack’s father, Gerry, scared him off; persistently cautioned and persecuted him over a period of years when he was the sergeant in the area. On the trail of his uncle Jack visits a hostel where he finds a decrepit figure sitting in a spartan room. Jack tries to reassure the man, who is clearly afraid of the Gardai, that he’s not here to arrest him. He is in fact his nephew, and he’s here because Sean (Stephen Rea) is family…



Jacqueline Gold the CEO of Ann Summers is one of Britain's most well-known businesswomen. She has developed the family business from the domain of the male "raincoat brigade" to a taboobusting, female-friendly high street staple. Too famous to go undercover herself, Jacqueline sends Deputy MD and younger sister Vanessa undercover to visit Ann Summers stores across the UK. Despite having worked for the UK's leading adult retailer since the age of 16, Vanessa has to overcome extreme nervousness when face to face with her customers and their often intimate questions about the products on sale. But is her reticence to talk sex echoed by the staff and customers around her or has the brand got too safe for even the high street?
