Hello readers and what a scoop we have this issue for you, only film and television’s very own Jennifer Aniston, fresh from filming her latest role in Horrible Bosses, she took some tie to talk to us on page 140. There are some days (not many) we miss living in the bustling city of London, but these last few days have made me glad to be raising a family in our lovely town on the south coast and thank goodness we’ve not had the trouble seen on the street of London down here. Now it’s all very well me recommending a book to you, but what are the authors reading I hear you ask, well turn to page 120 to find out would be my reply! We’ve also got fashion tips to get Kate

Middleton’s look, a couple of tasty recipes, my favourite things, some gorgeous vino, 5 minutes with Kirsty Allsop, property news, our pick of the best upcoming TV and much more, so what exactly are you waiting for, get flicking! I may well be firmly back on the fitness wagon now, but that doesn’t mean I don’t love a good meal. If you own a restaurant and you’d like to be reviewed in House, do let me know at emma@emch.co.uk.

DORSET property agents, Bournecoast were delighted to reward their office manager for long service. Helen Horsford has been with the company for the last 10 years and is now the office manager in Southbourne. Earlier this week Helen was presented with a watch and bracelet by the directors, for her loyal service to the firm. She started with the firm on 2nd July back in 2001 and has been a dedicated member of staff since then. During her time with Bournecoast, as well as running a busy office and dealing with the challenges of recession and seasonal fluctuations, she also

It’s was time of year again for Business Comes Dancing! You have seen TV’s ‘Strictly Come Dancing’this was the business people's version! Seven local business people swapped their office-wear for sequins and lycra the Thursday before last to compete to become King or Queen of the dance floor, in the second annual ‘Business Come Dancing’ competition, in aid of local charity, the Wessex Cancer Trust. The event took place at the Hotel Piccadilly in Bournemouth and the contestants danced in the ballroom, in front of a packed audience and a panel of four judges. Including a special guest judge who made it all the way down from the ‘East-end’ - actor Stefan Booth who currently plays Greg in Eastenders and who has previously competed in Dancing on Ice. Stephan also added a signed Albert Square sign to the auction, raising money for the local charity.

found time to add to her family. Veronica Strongman, director of Bournecoast said, “Helen has been a very loyal hard working member of the Bournecoast Team and has always thrown herself fully into her role. “Being involved in a family business, when you work so closely with someone for so many years they inevitably become part of your family.  Helen is a very valued part of Bournecoast and I look forward to working with her for many more years to come.” Helen said, “I have enjoyed my time with Bournecoast and have made friends with many of our clients.

Pippa Leech, Associate at Savills Canford Cliffs office along with her professional dance partner Daniel Murrell from Debut Dancing, performed a very fast paced modern jive with various crowd pleasing tricks including a two person cartwheel, which stole the title to become the 2011 champions!! Following Pippa’s triumph, Keith Fensom head of office at Savills Canford Cliffs and third place competitor in last years competition said “ We are all very proud of Pippa’s achievement and that her win was well deserved, particularly with all the hard work she and her professional dance partner put in over the past six weeks.“ Pippa herself also commented “I am so pleased to have been part of this fantastic event for such a wonderful cause – and the result made it that much better!! I would like to thank everyone who has supported me and given sponsorship to the charity. The evening was a huge success for the Wessex Cancer Trust with £6,000

a decade with Connells Commenting on this milestone Julie says: “I am delighted to be celebrating my tenth year at Connells. I am very lucky to have worked with some tremendous people over the years and I have built up some great relationships with customers. I still love what I do and very much enjoy seeing customers find the right home for them.” Julie joined Connells as a weekend sales negotiator at the company’s Verwood office in 2001. Since then, she has held roles as a senior negotiator, PA to the regional managing director and to the land and new homes team. Julie returned to working in a branch a couple of years ago and joined the Ringwood office in May of this year. “The whole team would like to congratulate Julie on this superb achievement. She is an integral member of the team providing vital organisational support and makes sure everything is running smoothly,” says Louis Powell, area director at Connells.

raised for local cancer patients and their families. I was very lucky to have been partnered with such a brilliant teacher in Daniel Murrell, who has endured very sores toes at my expense and thank him for all his time and effort! Following this experience I would highly recommend taking up a form of ballroom dancing as a hobby!!! “

News in brief... Northwood Bournemouth is celebrating the success of its branch manager Amanda Burger who passed her Lettings and Property Management BTEC with distinction. Amanda Burger is one of the first to complete the BTEC Diploma in Residential Lettings run by Northwood, the only UK lettings agency accredited by the Guild of

Lettings and Management to teach the qualification. With almost 10 years’ experience in the lettings industry and more than three years at Northwood, Amanda has already benefited from her new qualification, saying: “The BTEC has given me an advanced understanding of the legal aspects of the industry from landlords’

obligations to tenants rights.” Amanda completed the 12-month course, which included a total of 18 assignments on different areas of the industry, studying part time while continuing to manage the Bournemouth office. Owner of Northwood Bournemouth Andrew Smith said: “We are all extremely delighted for Amanda. She is a great asset to the business and is a fantastic resource of information and advice for both landlords and tenants alike.”

Fun in the sun at the Bournemouth Family Festival 2011 Just Shutters celebrated the summer in style by holding a fantastic beach barbeque at the end of July for the team, including franchisees, and their families. The weather held fair enough for everyone to enjoy good food, good company and several games of beach rounders (although everyone’s competitive edge came into play); a great time was had by all!” Right top row_William - Sales_ Martin & Kate - the fitters_ Bottom Row_ The team_ Chris - Managing Director.

Lynda Bellingham at the Christchurch Harbour Hotel Much-loved Loose Women, Calendar Girls and Strictly Come Dancing star, Lynda Bellingham visited the Christchurch Harbour Hotel & Spa for a special luncheon event on Friday 29th July – where she mingled with locals during a champagne reception on the terrace, then joined them for a three course meal, after which she gave a 45 minute talk. Her tales were warm and witty and very inspirational, from leaving her abusive husband to appearing naked on stage in Calendar Girls. She talked of how appearing on the Loose Women panel was like “daily therapy” and how Strictly Come Dancing was the most nerve racking experience of her life! She talked of her adoption and told how she discovered her real mother – she had many of the audience in tears! She explained how she met her new husband Michael and married him (at 60!) – and how life for her really began at 50!

Fun in the sun at the Bournemouth Family Festival 2011 The Bournemouth Family Festival was organised by Bournemouth Borough Council’s Early Years Service in partnership with Crumbs CafÊ, Westbourne Rotary and the YMCA in support of the national play day campaign. It reminds everyone young and old that children have the right to play and be valued. Showcasing local youth talent and services, the festival incorporated an Early Years Service Family Information Day which highlighted all the front line services available to local families whether statutory, charitable, third sector or local businesses.

Beyond the pale

Designer Atlanta Bartlett opens the door to her inspiring home to reveal a combination of imagination, flair and recycling can create stunning interiors without having to spend a fortune. She gives décor guidance, reveals tricks used by stylists and advises on quick ways to clear the clutter.

1. A clever mix of styles give a living room a relaxed and truly individual flavour. Furniture has been left in a 'found' state, embracing the scuffs and chips that tell stories of previous lives, while vintage florals sit happily alongside a faded antique kelim. A collection of American tin ceiling tiles are hung on the wall to create a panelled effect. 35

It would be understandable if a home inhabited by two designers was a temple to perfection; a space where attention was given to detail rather than lifestyle. But what's so striking as you step over the threshold of Atlanta Bartlett and Dave Coote's Kent home is its air of tranquil informality, and a 'kick off your shoes and get comfortable' approach to decor. This is an interior which cocks a snook at trends and transient fashion, and instead celebrates comfortable living with pared back decor - bleached, stripped floorboards, large squashy sofas dressed with light cotton throws, pale walls and an abundance of natural light flooding in through large windows. "We both have a relaxed, simplistic attitude to interior design and believe that our homes

should reflect our personality," says Bartlett, who juggles her work running the couple's interiors company and working as a stylist with bringing up their three young sons and new-born daughter. "What's paramount to us is good design, and noting fashion and trends - but not following them rigorously. Then it's about creating a happy home, not a show home." Coote, a furniture and interiors designer known for his, retro style with an emphasis on reclaimed materials, has put his stamp on all areas of the house, but none more so than in the kitchen. "It's the heart of the home and the hive of activity as a family room, where everything from homework to hobbies takes place. And it's also where we entertain," says Bartlett. "We didn't want it to be 'fitted' as that wouldn't suit our style and

wouldn't feel as welcoming, so Dave has created a collection of units from vintage cupboards and reclaimed wood, and we've used polished concrete and aluminium so it doesn't feel too quaint." While colour is confined to soft accents - washed-out blues, pastel pinks - there's never any danger of blandness, because the whole is enlivened by a liberal scattering of toys belonging to their lively children, as well as stylish displays. There are eye-catching quirky treasures arranged on surfaces or hung on walls, ranging from vintage shop signs and Victorian mirrors to assortments of delicate china plates collected over the years from markets. The interior is a harmonious fusion of both their styles, explains Bartlett, who met her husband 15 years ago. "Although our styles were quite different - Dave's quite rugged

and masculine and I'm more feminine and predominantly prefer white-based schemes we both love honest materials, artful recycling and choosing vintage over newly-made, and handmade rather than mass produced." It's resulted in a hugely successful look and company that they've called Pale & Interesting, which they also celebrate in their new book by the same name. "We want to show that it's not difficult or expensive to create a light, airy home that works for you," she says. "It's all about getting back to basics, tapping into your own style, editing your possessions so you retain only what's useful and beautiful, and then you can live in an environment that's calm, easy and unpretentious."

Left to right– A beautiful wooden model sailing boat gives this pale bedroom a nautical theme. Placing it beside a group of fossils and piles of antique books shows that a creative mix-and-match approach to displaying collections will ensure that your home never looks like a museum. 2. A pretty collection of lustrewear is given room to breathe in this display, which keeps the effect fresh and unclutterred. The decorative painted-glass panel on the 19th century clock echoes the pretty pastel pink of the china. 3. An impressive collection of antlers, butterflies, fossils and shells massed together creates maximum impact in this interior. An eclectic yet stylish mix of furniture and accessories keeps the look up to date, while vintage floral cushions add a touch of femininity. Clean white walls ensure that the overall feel is fresh. 4. An 18th century wrought-iron and marble table in the home of Atlanta Bartlett and Dave Coote, holds an array of family photographs of generations past and present. Vintage mirrored photo frames add sparkle and a cake stand piled with shells and corals brings texture while keeping the arrangement personal.

Clever colour

"An all-white scheme will need to have some colour somewhere, whether it's in curtains, cushions, furniture or simply a vaseful of acidgreen foliage," says Bartlett. "Source furniture from junk shops and markets, and paint it in soft shades of gentle grey and blue, inspired by the colours which predominate on antique French and Swedish pieces. "Other options include painting every chair around the dining table a different colour for an eclectic effect, displaying a collection of coloured jugs on open shelves or hanging curtains in a bold vintage floral for a splash of retro chic." Stylish tip: Loose covers in pastel hues of lilac, lemon yellow or dusky pink will add a note of femininity, she suggests, while slate grey or denim is more appropriate for a more masculine feel.

Touchy-feely "A room devoid of texture will feel hard and cold, and not compatible with an inviting retreat that soothes and feeds the senses," she says. "Aim to contrast and complement textures throughout your interior, from walls and floors through to cushions and throws. Tongue-and-groove panelling is a great way to add understated texture to walls. "For something more unusual, try cladding one wall in planks of different widths and textures, then paint them all one colour for unity." Stylish tip: In general, heavier, coarser surfaces like wood, stone or linen lend themselves to a more relaxed look, she points out, while mirror, lacquer or satin are more formal. Layer tactile fabrics such as chunky knitted throws, felted cushions and animal skins with antique linen curtains, battered leather armchairs and rusty metal tables.

38


Creative kitchen "A soulless off-the-peg kitchen plucked straight off the showroom floor with endless rows of fitted cabinets will not suit a pale and interesting interior," says Bartlett. "Instead, have fun and be creative, combining an antique dresser with industrial style shelves or a sleek bank of fitted cupboards with a vintage French linen press. "Scour salvage yards for inspirational finds such as old school lockers to house your mops and brooms, or a shop fitting that could be transformed into a kitchen island with plenty of storage space beneath." Stylish tip: Paint cabinet doors for an instant new look, and paint the inside of glazed cupboards to give a burst of colour. Choose a large trestle or wooden refectory table for dining, which will blend with any scheme, and add decoration with a collection of vintage china displayed on a wall or cabinet.

Sleeping sanctuary "A bedroom should offer the perfect balance between indulgence and simplicity," says Bartlett. "Using peaceful, sleep-inducing shades like soft, chalky white and pale blues, while incorporating simple furniture, soft bedding and a few decorative touches, will help conjure a place that's a real retreat." She suggests soft greys, pale lilacs and pinks, the gentlest aquamarine or creamy neutrals for the walls, and stripped or painted floorboards, with an antique bedstead in wood or iron. Stylish tip: Fabric dye is a brilliant way to refresh tired or out-of-date bedlinen, she advises. Be imaginative with bedside tables - consider a simple block of wood, or contrast a vintage bed with a modern accessory, such as a perspex cube.

"Give your home plenty of soul by adorning the space with the things you love," she says. "It doesn't matter that your cherished 1960s tulip table doesn't exactly match your grandmother's Chippendale chair, or if your husband's record collection takes over half the sitting room. "Give those items pride of place. The important thing is that everything you have out on display should have personal meaning for you and your family, and that way your home will be a truly relaxed expression of yourselves." Stylist tip: The first step is to declutter your home and consider which items you want tucked out of sight - good storage is essential - and which you want to showcase. For an effective display, remember you don't need to have everything out at the same time - ringing the changes keeps things interesting. Vary a display on a seasonal basis with beachcomber finds in the summer, and a hedgerow collection in the autumn.

The school holidays are here again and I cannot believe how quickly the last year has gone. In some respects I hope that the next 6 weeks pass just as quickly, as the annual challenge of managing work and entertaining children presents itself yet again. This year I am on a mission to have maximum fun on minimum budget and luckily we live in an area full of free or relatively cheap things to do. My favourite place to go is The New Forest. Over the coming weeks it will be full of families enjoying the beauty of our local National Park. You can never underestimate the fun that kids can have in an open space with a ball or cricket set. One of my favourite spots is a meadow on the edge of the Broadly enclosure just off the Brockenhurst Road. You need to go down a few tracks to find it but once you do, it feels like you have travelled for miles. There is a stream at the bottom with a rope swing and the kids will play happily for hours. It is the kind of hidden treasure that can provide hours of fun with a bit of local knowledge and some luck with the weather. Another family favourite in our house is a fossil hunting expedition. Once my 5 year old came to terms with the fact that he wasn’t going to walk into the skeleton of a Tyrannosaurus Rex at the bottom of the steps to Kimmerage Bay, he had a wonderful time hunting for treasure amongst the rocks. If sandy beaches are more your thing we’ve got the famous “7 miles” of them to choose from. Dorset recently came 4th in a list of the most popular UK destinations to take a beach holiday (behind Cornwall, The Isle Of Wight and West Sussex) and the advantage we have is that we don’t have to spend on a hotel or holiday accommodation to enjoy them. Mudeford is a favourite of mine and if the kids get bored on the beach you can always take a walk along the quay and see how the “crabbers” are getting on. The beach is the best place to see Bournemouth’s newest annual tourist event. The Air Festival is due to return from the 18th of August promising 4 days of flying by day and the “night air” entertainment around the lower gardens. Finally Dorset is home to some of the brightest carnivals. One of the biggest is Swanage, with over 100 events during the week long celebrations which conclude with the annual fireworks display. There are dozens of reasons why you can do more than just spend 6 weeks in the Costa Del Back Garden this summer holiday, even if you’re trying to get through the school break on a budget. All we need now is a few days of sunshine to enjoy them!

Attachments The minimum a food processor should come with are slicing / dicing blades and a grating disc. But some models go one step further with whisks, kneading tools, citrus juicers and emulsifying paddles for mayonnaise. Power High wattage is good because food processors need plenty of power to perform effectively and efficiently, especially when required for crushing ice, chopping nuts or kneading dough. A pulse setting is a useful function allowing you to control just how fine things get chopped. Blender Many food processors come with a separate blender attachment which is ideal for pureeing, and whizzing up soups and smoothies. Glasss jugs are preferable as are easy clean blades. Cleaning Go for dishwasher safe models, which is a far safer method of cleaning than by hand.

RAINFORESTS HAVE EVOLVED OVER MILLIONS OF YEARS

– In 1950 Rain Forests covered 15% of the earth's land surface now they cover a mere 6%, the lastremaining rainforests could be consumed in less than 40 years, 2 acres lost every second. 50,000 species are lost every year. Rainforests are the 'lungs of our planet' as they recycle carbon dioxide into oxygen. 80% of our diet originated in the tropical rainforest. Forget global warming, without rainforests we DIE!

Ask the Experts Save Energy Group

With all the hype surrounding the potential incomes from Renewable energy, we decided to speak to an industry expert Steve Randall, Sales Director for Save Energy Group. Q. So Steve, first and foremost who are Save Energy? A. Save Energy is a family orientated and run business with over 25 years’ experience in the renewable energy field. Unlike the majority of solar companies around today, Save Energy have been installing systems since 2003, well before the Feed-in Tariffs (FIT) were introduced. We are based in Poole, Dorset, and we cover the whole South of England. Q. Has there been much interest? A. Masses and we just keep getting busier! With the fit base rate due to drop next April, people who may have only been considering it are going ahead because they can see how doing it sooner rather than later will be thousands of pounds more beneficial to them over the next few years. The majority of our business comes from recommendations – they just can’t keep quiet about the fruits of their investment. Q. What is the lifespan of the solar PV array? A. Being an MCS accredited company, all materials used are designed for a 25 year minimum life span. This is a proven technology – we have in-house engineers who have tested panels to ensure they are of the Highest quality and efficiency. The fit is guaranteed for 25 years, tax free and index-linked, so there will never be a better time to invest!

Q. Great, but what puts you apart from the competition? Exceptional customer care & service A. Recommendation - Checkatrade.com Price – I’d like to think we are MCS accreditation - REAL code of unbeatable due to our vast buying conduct, and most importantly bespoke power and back up service design systems to ensure our customers Save Energy Association – our always get the best system they can. customers receive automatic Quality of workmanship see membership to the association offering checkatrade.com & our website exclusive deals and discounts both from testimonials at saveenergygroup.co.uk ourselves and other partners Public Indemnity Insurance included, covering the design Extended warranties included Q. How do people see a return on their investment? A. Customers receive three separate fiscal benefits from investing in solar PV. Firstly, for every kilowatt hour (kWh) that your system produces, you will receive a payment (currently 43.3p). This comes from your electricity supplier and is part of a government agreement that is guaranteed for 25 years from the date of installation. Secondly, throughout the day you will be using the electricity that you produce for free!! This can be a huge reduction in customer’s electricity bills. Thirdly, any electricity that you produce but don’t use is automatically sold back to the national grid. These three combined (not taking into account the added value to the property) result in an average of 10% - 14% return on investment, significantly higher than most high street banks. Q. How can I find out more? A. Easy! You can go on our website www.saveenergygroup.co.uk give us a call 01202 721188 or visit our premises. Our fully interactive show room is opening soon, so you’ll be able to see how everything works and even meet the directors! You can also book a free, no-obligation home assessment with one of our consultants who will be able to explain in detail how a bespoke renewable energy system will benefit you.

Chris roper The Low Carbon Energy Centre give us some tips on eco-friendly living.

Wood burning stoves ... Q– I’m thinking about putting in a wood burner, What do I need to consider? A– Where will the stove go? Is my hearth big enough, will I need to replace or extend it? If you need a new hearth there are many options so it is a good idea to do a little bit of research in to non combustible materials, these would include ceramic 15% tiles,OFF stone, granite, toughened glass, marble or even simple house bricks. The heat from the stove is ALL STOVES measured in kW’s and you will need to asses how big the output needs PURCHASED to be for your size of room. Most if IN notAPRIL all stoves will need to have the / MAY existing flue lined or a rigid flue installed to increase the efficiency. 2011 This is made of stainless steel and costs approx £1000. This is often a hidden cost that many people omit to take in to consideration when setting out on this type of project. Finally the look of the stove and what image you are trying to achieve. Traditional or contemporary, inset or freestanding, it’s a good idea to have a think about the level of alterations that you would be prepared to make if any to accommodate your shiny new stove. Q– What are the benefits to using a HETAS registered installer? A– When fitting a wood burner you need to be aware of the regulations involved. Ideally the person installing the stove is registered as a HETAS installer. A HETAS registered installer will ensure that everything is fitted to regulations and will provide you with a certificate on completion of the job. If you do wish to use someone who is not HETAS registered then you should be aware that you will need to contact your local Building Control Officer to come and sign off the installation. This is a perfectly legitimate way of doing things, however this will involve an additional cost to you which varies from council to council and may mean that any non conforming elements will need to be rectified at additional expense. If you should happen to have any fire related incident where an insurance claim is necessary then your insurance company will often insist on a HETAS certificate. It is also safe to say that any non conforming installations can pose health and fire risks. Q– How much will it cost? A– On average installations can range from £1,200 to in excess of £6,000. It very much depends on your budget, the type of stove chosen and the requirements of your flue. It is always best to get an accurate quotation allowing for any alterations before you agree to proceed.

Despite the economic gloom and fears for the euro, the average home in Britain has risen by 2.6% since January, pushing up the average price of a home by more than £5,000 to about £216,000, says a new market survey. According to the latest data from property website Zoopla.co.uk, homeowners in the first half of 2011 clawed back some of the losses they suffered last year. Average prices dropped by nearly £11,000 in June-December 2010. The average home in England now costs £216,260 and in Wales £152,576, while property prices in Scotland have been more sluggish, growing only 1.1% since January to an average £155,927. Zoopla says prices have risen in eight of the 11 regions of Britain, with only the South West, East Midlands and North East experiencing a drop. The strongest region, by far, is London, where average house prices have climbed 5.3% since January and average £408,888 today, against £388,265 at the start of the year. Nicholas Leeming, Zoopla director, says: “The property market is back on the right track with most regions having clawed back some of the ground lost at the end of last year. “London is powering ahead of the pack with average values now at their highest level since January 2009. “However, there is still some uncertainty over the future of the economy and it remains to be seen if the second half of this year will continue upwards as the first half of 2011 or will follow the pattern of last year and give back some of the first half gains in the latter part of the year.” Average house prices over last six months – Country | July 2011 - January 2011 | % Change England | £226,829 - £220,844 | 2.70% Wales | £152,576 - £148,530 | 2.70% Scotland | £155,927 - £154,213 | 1.10% Britain | £216,260 - £210,782 | 2.60% Average house prices by region over last six months – Region | July 2011 - January 2011 | % Change London | £408,888 - £388,265 | 5.30% East of England | £233,646 - £226,173 | 3.30% Wales | £152,602 - £148,555 | 2.70% South East | £280,213 - £272,887 | 2.70% Yorkshire/Humber | £143,734 -£141,136 | 1.80% West Midlands | £170,704 - £168,612 | 1.20% Scotland |£155,910 - £154,197 |1.10% North West | £156,261 - £155,617 | 0.40% South West | £223,198 - £224,119 | -0.40% East Midlands | £161,189 - £161,970 | -0.50% North East | £158,683 - £159,802 | -0.70% Source: Zoopla.co.uk

Thirsty work

Fancy a drink? HOUSE is in pursuit of pink pleasure, sources some delicious rose wines for summer soirees

– Tickledpink _

Clarendelle Rose 2010, www.Booths.co.uk

£10.99

78

Nothing quite captures the flavours of summer like a well-chilled glass of rose. Loved by couples dining al fresco, a pretty pink bottle nestling inside an ice bucket signals a Mediterranean lifestyle - even if the blue skies only reach as far as your local brasserie or tapas bar. Petal pink, strawberry, salmon or coral, the scented spectrum of this fair weather tipple seduces wine lovers with its fruity style, and a fresh rose is a champion choice with seafood or spicy dishes.

£6.98 Campaneo Garnacha Rosado 2010 , Asda

For a pretty patio pink that's just been voted 'The best wine under £10 to match with chicken tikka masala' by What Food What Wine Awards, try Toro Loco Spanish Rose 2010 (£3.49, Aldi). A lively lollipop pink (Toro Loco means 'crazy bull') made from bobal grapes, this cheap and cheerful rose doesn't scrimp on flavour, and it's packed with vibrant fruit and a hint of spice. If Spanish tapas is on your tasting menu, try Campaneo Garnacha Rosado 2010 (£6.98, Asda) Rioja. Very cherry-esque and 100% grenache, there's a fruity roundness to this refreshing rose with its wild strawberry flavours and zippy finish - delicious with fried calamari.


PA Photo

For an effortless rose to serve at barbecues and fiestas, try El Coto Rioja Rosado DOC 2010 (£6.25, www.pauladamsfinewines.co.uk). A tempranillo/grenache blend, it's a terrific aperitif with strong hints of strawberry and raspberry with fresh, gooseberry-like acidity - well rounded enough to stand up to marinated chicken and seasoned sausages. Crossing over to the French border, a good entry level rose from the South of France is Cuvee de Richard Rose 2010 (£4.99, Majestic). A pretty salmon pink from skilled Languedoc producer Alain Grignon, this mostly cinsault blend is dry with a tutti-fruity bouquet and a nice core of pink grapefruit - ideal with grilled meats and, of course, salad nicoise. One of the prettiest Provençal roses, try the hugely appealing Mirabeau Provence Rose 2010, (£8.99, Waitrose). Petal pink (the colour varies depending on the red grape and winemaker's technique), it's a blend of grenache, cinsault and syrah. Classy and fragrant with ribbons of strawberry flavours and a rush of raspberry on the dry but fruity finish.

£6.25

£8.99 Further north, Bordeaux may be hailed for its trophy reds, but it also produces elegant roses. From Clarence Dillon Wines (a branch of the Chateau Haut-Brion dynasty), try Clarendelle Rose 2010 (£10.99, www.averys.com). A vibrant coral pink, it's a blend of cabernet sauvignon and merlot. Quite full bodied, it's fragrant and fresh with bright berry fruits, good structure and roundness - excellent with lightly spiced curries, rotisserie chicken or summer salads. In the same vein, the village of PulignyMontrachet is synonymous for its whites, but the pinot noir grapes also produce heavenly roses such as Olivier Leflaive's Cuvee Margoton Rose 2009 (£9.65 from £10.99, until August 31, Corney & Barrow, 020 7265 2430). A pale salmon pink, the subtle, crushed berry fruits and light fruit aromas with a hint of minerality make it a perfect partner with grilled white meats and seafood - a classy Burgundy blush.

Mirabeau Provence Rose 2010, Waitrose.

£9.65

El Coto Rioja Rosado Doc 2010, www.pauladamsfinewines.co.uk

From the picturesque Chateau D'Esclans, north of St Tropez, where winemaker Sacha Lichine famously promised to make "the best rose wines in the world", try his entry level and artfully named Whispering Angel Cotes de Provence Rose 2010 (£13.50, www.goedhuis.com). Ice pink and very delicate, it's predominantly grenache, topped up with cinsault, syrah, mourvedre and rolle. With light fruit aromas, subtle hints of strawberry, redcurrant and cherry with fresh acidity, the embossed bottle and stylish label bear testament to this wine's superior quality - Chateau D'Esclans produces some of the world's most expensive rose! Further along the sunny Cote d'Azur, Bandol is prized for its rose wines. For a glass of liquid love, try Domaine De Terrebrune Rose Bandol (£18.45, www.bbr.com). Mourvedre is Bandol's signature grape and this rose is 50% mourvedre, with grenache and cinsault in equal measures. The palest blush, it's soft with strawberry fruit flavours, good concentration and a creamy finish. Sip after wonderful sip, it captures the beauty of Provence.

Leflaive Cuvee Margoton Rose 2009, reduced from £10.99, until Aug 31, Corney & Barrow

£13.50

A household name, New Zealand wine producer Villa Maria's latest release has just arrived on our shores. Try Villa Maria First Release Private Bin Sauvignon Blanc 2011 (£9.99, Sainsbury's) - racy, with hallmark gooseberry and passion fruit flavours, it's a youthful, zesty glass that won't disappoint.

Five minutes with... Kirstie Allsopp TV presenter and mother-of-two Kirstie Allsopp gives her top tips to keep children entertained this summer and reveals how she juggles her family and work life.

What do you suggest mums do to keep kids entertained this summer? Get other kids round. All kids’ toys are new and exciting to other kids, and everybody else’s house is better than yours to them. If you keep it really simple and say, ‘I’m going to ring up my friends...’. It goes both ways, because if you ring another mum from school and say, ‘I’ll have yours on Wednesday if you have mine on Friday’, then it works very well in that sense. When you have their kids over you can get on with other things at home, and when she has your kids over she can get on with other things at home and you can go out and do stuff. How did you get involved in the persil campaign? Because they asked and because my agent said, ‘Do you want to do it?’, and assumed I was going to say ‘No’ because I had so far said no to every single similar thing I’d been asked to do, but I like it. I think it’s a really good idea to celebrate mums. You’ve had a lot on your plate this year. What’s next? We’ve filmed 10 shows of Location, Location, Location since Easter and we’re filming this new crafts show at the moment, The new series of Location, Location, Location comes out in August. My new crafts shows comes out after that, so probably mid-October.

What can we expect from the crafts show? That involves going to county shows around the country, learning new crafts and entering those crafts for competitions to be judged in the same way as everyone else’s stuff. How have you been getting on at the competitions? I’m not allowed to give too much away, but I did win a couple of the competitions. At the moment I’m on four wins and five losses. I think that ratio will change and it will get worse because some of the things I’m entering I’m not that confident about. I’m self-confident when I’m telling people which house to buy. That’s where it stops. How easy or hard is it juggling family life with tv work? The key is to keep the school holidays clear, which is the big luxury I have that other working mums don’t. I’m lucky. The job is immensely flexible. There are times when I have to be away overnight or three or four nights but I think I manage to be at home a lot more than a lot of working mums who have to work nine to five 48 weeks of the year. You’re a big twitter fan. Why? Lots of good things come out of it. I debate better; I take things less personally; I think I have a wider perspective. Twitter will remind you very fast how lucky you

are. Recently I was grumbling about having to have another pub lunch and I got such a load of feedback, such as: ‘The rest of us have to go to Boots and buy our own lunch. Don’t complain!’ I thought, ‘Yes, OK’. It is good like that. Follow Kirsty @kirstiemallsopp Follow us @House_Mag Is a multimedia presence crucial for celebrities? In the modern world, if you’re in television you have to make yourself ‘sticky’. You have to draw people away from their computers and back to their television screens, and that is a very important part of the job description of any modern television presenter. If you don’t engage in modern media you are absolutely sunk. No newspaper would not think about not having a website these days, and it has to be the same with television presenters. You cannot just make a television programme and expect people to watch it unless you engage them in other media. Finally, where and when were you happiest? It’s always got to be now because of the children. Yesterday a dinosaur and a dragon suit that I ordered from the internet arrived, and the ‘dinosaur’ then discovered he could climb up the outside of the fridge. There was an extraordinary sight of a small dinosaur with a purple spine scaling our very large fridge and then turning round and giving me a very broad grin.

life new to your garden give

And increase your living space too! At Broomhill GARDEN BUILDINGS we offer a new

Ask the expert Martin Penny Broomhill garden buildings Why Buy a conservatory?

lease of life to your garden with our extensive range of Conservatories, Garden Rooms, Windows and Doors that blend effortlessly with your home, harmonising with their surroundings, providing practical solutions and creating beautiful environments...

A conservatory will give you more living space and provides a smoother transition from your home into the garden. It brings the garden into your home and provides plenty of natural sunlight that no other room in the house can match.

Beautiful Conservatories from only £7,950

What design do I go for? The four most common designs for conservatories are Victorian, Edwardian, Georgian and Lean-To but because they can be made to measure you can design the conservatory to compliment your property perfectly.

What material do I choose for construction? Conservatories are available in three materials, PVCu, Aluminium or Timber. Most people will choose the material that blends with the property the best. PVCu is the most common material due to the fact the majority of houses have PVCu windows and it is the most economical material to manufacture a conservatory with. Aluminium offers greater strength and the option of having it powder coated to a colour of your choice. Timber offers the most traditional way of construction and most wooden conservatories will be built with a species of Hardwood with the option of staining or painting the frames.

What material do I choose from for the roof? The two most common glazing materials for a conservatory roof are polycarbonate and glass. Polycarbaonate is a multi-wall translucent plastic material and is less expensive than glass. Polycarbonate offers good thermal insulation and is available in a choice of colours. Glass provides the most user friendly option for conservatories. It allows a panoramic view of your surroundings and is much quieter in the rain compared to polycarbonate. Pilkington ‘activ’ glass offers solar reflective properties during the summer, great insulation during the winter and is self cleaning. Who do I choose to build my conservatory? Broomhill Conservatories, a family run local company, having been building conservatories since 1993. We offer a complete service from the initial design stage right through to the finishing touches like underfloor heating and tiled floors. We are proud accredited members of the Double Glazing & Conservatory Ombudsman Scheme endorsed by Nick Ross, which provides insurance backed protection for homeowners buying conservatories or double glazing.

Will Croker The Great Estate Agency Con Our columnist, Knights Director Will Croker, gives his view on the latest estate agency fee trend.

I don’t like underhand practice. I don’t like skulduggery. I don’t like vulnerable people being placed in a situation that they neither wanted to be in, nor realised that they were in at all. Reading the manifestations of events at News International over the last few weeks it made me realise that I am somebody with a far stronger moral code than even I realised. I had been a Murdoch aficionado I suppose, as I read the News of The World and The Sunday Times, both of course News International publications, yet I was glad that the paper was shut down. To have caused such heartache to so many people, many of whom had never asked to be in the public eye was a scandal of our times and I could see no way that it could survive. Then as if fate was standing over me with a poking stick I experienced something, which whilst on a smaller scale, made my blood boil almost as much. It is called the Fixed Fee Schedule. This wolf in sheep’s clothing is the single biggest scandal that is engulfing our industry; portraying itself as an easy to budget solution to a problem that doesn’t exist. In the main it is corporate agents that use them and it works like this. They take your house on at £250,000 and sign you up on a sole agency basis. They then tell you that the fee should be £5,400 but they have the flexibility to reduce it for you a little so the fee will be £4,900, a saving of £500. This works out at a fee of 1.96%; however the fixed fee is ‘great’ because you know exactly what you have to pay. What bilge, most people with a calculator can work out what 1.5% or 1.75% is. Anyway the trickery doesn’t stop here, because this is now your fixed monetary amount; your discounted ‘aren’t we lovely’ fee. What they don’t tell you is that actually they have over valued your house by £15,000 and you have now agreed a sale at £235,000. Pats on the back all round I hear you cry. Until you realise that your easy to budget £4,900 fee now represents 2.09% of your achieved price. Now that is what I call a monster sole agency fee, in other words daylight robbery. I am amazed that every time one of these contracts is signed, there isn’t some backing music playing Adam and the Ants ‘Stand and Deliver’. Now, you may say that the agent is just being clever. However, the people I meet who are most usually affected by it are the elderly, the vulnerable people that still remember buying a house for £1,000. Of course to them £235,000 sounds a lot and what is £4,900 out of it? I will tell you what it is, it is £1,650 more than a decent independent agent charging 1.5% would be due, when factoring in VAT. Estate Agents have worked hard to try to rid ourselves of this wide boy image but with this profiteering they are risking sending us all right back where we came from. I know that everyone should read their contracts and digest the information; however we all know that this can sometimes be forgotten about in the excitement and adrenalin of making such a bold move. This is far worse than over valuing houses to win the instruction, it is also far worse than tying people into extended period sole agency agreements, they at least are transparent. The general public’s protests forced The News of The World to close, between us we can insist on transparency from our agent and rid the industry of this dirty mal-practice.

A passion for planning

PLANNING SOLUTIONS

No win - no fee Developers are becoming increasingly frustrated at rising fees caused by poor initial advice or lengthy appeals processes which ultimately end in rejection. At Planning Solutions we are proud of our reputation for securing approval on even the most challenging of schemes and for our honest and skilled advice to our clients on how to maximise their return on each development.

“Planning Solutions Town Planners are the most adaptable firm of planners we have come across and are certainly experts on the south coast.” Ian Wallace – Managing Director, Barratt Homes

We are so confident of our abilities and expertise, we are delighted to launch our new ‘no win – no fee’ structure to give you complete peace of mind. We believe Planning Solutions are the only Town Planners in the region to offer such a scheme and this means we now offer four different fee structures so our clients can choose the most advantageous route dependent on development and circumstance.

PPS3 update Many tabloid newspapers reported last year the developing of side or rear gardens would cease completely but this hype has proved to be unfounded. Planning Solutions has been successful in achieving approval on several such applications, once again proving our ability to secure approvals in challenging circumstances. If in doubt, take advantage of our free of charge consultation.

A few of our favourite things A selection of some of the trendiest interior buys we found this month. Strauss Water T6

Tuiss - Sliding panel blinds

The Strauss Water T6 is a revolutionary new hot and cold drinking water appliance that provides you with the purest quality drinking water, at the temperature you want, from boiling hot to ice cold. Connecting simply to your mains water supply the T6 is the easiest way to get unlimited pure drinking water, replacing the need for plastic drinking bottles, kettles and water filters.  It’s great for your health, skin, and general wellbeing as it encourages people to drink more water. A stylish addition to any home, the T6 comes in 12 colours to match your kitchen. The Strauss Water T6 is less harmful to the environment than bottled water as it cuts the need for plastic bottles,  one of the biggest contributors to CO2 emissions.

Sliding panel blinds are a relatively new and innovative shading solution to the UK market. Perfect for larger windows and patio doors or to divide a room, these modern blinds are more sophisticated looking than vertical blinds and give a wonderful streamlined, designer-look to any room.

For more information or to purchase please visit www.T6water.co.uk  

What makes panel blinds so unique is the wide panels that reflect and filter daylight so effectively. When open, the panels stack neatly behind one another allowing maximum light into the room. Sliding the panels into the closed position creates a complete fabric screen providing light control and increased privacy. Panels can range in widths and lengths to fit most windows and sliding doors. The panels are composed of fabric of which there are many options available. There is a wide choice from sheer fabrics that let in light to coloured and patterned fabrics that provide more privacy, all in a wide variety of colours and textures. There is also a Medley option which allows you to mix up different coloured and patterned panels to give your room an instant lift and undeniable kudos. Prices start from just £36.19 for a made to measure panel blind measuring W61cm x D61cm. For free fabric samples or to order visit www.tuiss.co.uk or call 0800 862 0466.

Wi-fi bathroom scales Maxim 2 in 1 jug and scales We know that some of you are fans of the bish-bosh ‘chuck it and see’ cooking method, but sometimes you need to measure what goes into our recipes. Trouble is, cracking out clunky scales is a right malarkey, especially when you can measure both liquids and solids with the ingenious Maxim 2 in 1 Jug and Scales. This clever one-litre measuring jug has digital scales in its base, saving you time and sanity in the kitchen. And thanks to a smart add-and-weigh function it can measure all the liquids necessary for a recipe (water, milk, oil) and go straight onto solids (flour, sugar, breadcrumbs) without throwing a Gordon. Building up and mixing different ingredients has never been easier. You needn’t worry about complex sums because the Maxim’s LCD display shows weight and volume in both metric and imperial units. In fact if recipes go wrong using this baby the only person to blame will be the bazillionaire saucepan botherer who guesstimated the measurements. Yes, chef! £21.49, www.firebox.com or £29, Peanut & Pip, www.peanutandpip.com 102

Ultra sleek, this tempered-glass and aluminium gizmo automatically records your weight, fat mass and BMI (body mass index) every time you step on it. But here’s the clever bit: it beams the info to your computer or iPhone over your WiFi connection, so you can track your results wherever you may roam via a password protected website or free iPhone app. You can even sync with Google Health and share your progress (or lack of) via email, Twitter or Facebook. Weigh-hay! The WiFi Scale is also compatible with online coaching programs such as Daily Burn and iPhone apps like RunKeeper and WeightBot. You’ll be so busy monitoring your data you might even forget about those doughnuts in the cupboard. Result! It’s not all about you though. This family-friendly gadget is capable of tracking and storing data for as many as eight users. And get this: it even knows who’s standing on it. No, really. It uses previously recorded data to identify each user. Uncanny or what. Once you’ve logged into your account you can compare your stats with the ‘ideal’ figures for someone of your age and body type. You can also add notes about your fitness regime and what you’ve eaten each day. It’s as easy as…er, pie. Indeed, if this doesn’t put you on the road to rude health, nothing will. So what are you waiting for? Step on it! £119.99 www.firebox.com

Let! us do all the work BELVOIR! SIGNS UP TO NATIONAL INDUSTRY KITEMARK A group of the country’s leading letting agents have launched a kitemark to raise consumer awareness of the financial risk of using ‘uninsured’ agents. Belvoir! The Lettings Specialist which operates local offices in Christchurch, Highcliffe & Westbourne is one of the first to sign up to the nationwide scheme. Jeremy Clarke of Belvoir Christchurch & Highcliffe states “there has been an increase in letting agents failing and leaving client account deficits or in some cases absconding with clients’ rent and deposits altogether. If an agent does not display the new kitemark consumers will be told that they are potentially at risk. The new kitemark will ensure consumers know exactly what to look for when they approach an agent. The aim is simple no kitemark, no Client Money Protection if the agent goes bust.” “Landlords often make decisions on placing their business with an agent based on cost but it can end up costing them more than they bargained for if the agents shut down and disappear with the contents of the client account. If agents are not part of a client money protection scheme, consumers have little or no possibility of recovering lost funds. We have got to make consumers more aware of this.”

MILES FOR MACMILLAN Mike Betteridge of Belvoir Westbourne recently took part in the Macmillan Yorkshire 3 peaks run after being challenged by his Landlords and Tenants to complete the event. The route covers 25 miles and 5,000ft of climbing. Mike completed the event in 9hrs 20mins and has raised just over £2000 for Macmillan. Jeremy Clarke from Belvoir Christchurch kept his challenge closer to home; setting off from Charminster in Bournemouth he cycled to every property managed by his office ending up in Burton via Boscombe, Southbourne, Tuckton, Christchurch, Mudeford, Highcliffe, New Milton, Ashley, Milford, & Bransgore. A total of 71 miles & more than 8 hours in the saddle. Sponsorship from his landlords & tenants has so far raised over £1500!

LANDLORDS! At Belvoir we pride ourselves in the quality of the properties that we offer and the quality of our tenants. We are currently looking to increase our property stock and are therefore looking for new landlords and landlords who are looking for a fresh approach to letting their properties. If you have a property or are considering becoming a landlord and buying a property call Jeremy Clarke on 01202 588920 to discuss your options. We cover all of the BH23, BH25 & SO41 postcode areas.

Specialist Residential Letting Agents

DON’T RISK USING UNREGULATED LETTING AGENTS Whilst fulfilling the role of Dorset Representative for A.R.L.A. (Association of Residential Letting Agents). Jonathan Alsford, Director of Realty Property Solutions and Fellow of A.R.L.A., heard all too frequently, the problems that instructing unregulated letting agents can bring for Tenants and Landlords. “Unqualified, unregulated individuals are able to set up a lettings agency and deal with thousands of pounds worth of landlords’ and tenants’ money. Coupled with this they have no knowledge of the complex legalities involved with the industry, this is ok when things are going well, but when a tenancy runs into trouble, they are not able to advise what to do next”. Realty Property Solutions is one of only 2 specialist letting agents in the Lower Parkstone area that are licensed members of A.R.L.A. Adherence to the tightly controlled A.R.L.A. regulations includes: holding clients’ money in a separate ‘client’s’ account with regular reconciliation; client money protection insurance; Professional Indemnity Insurance and members of the Property Ombudsman. These are all things that set Realty apart from other local, independent agencies. It is also something that adds credence to their motto of “Our Experience will Move You”. Jonathan goes on to say “I have been campaigning locally and nationally for years for tighter regulations within the lettings industry. Alas, it is commonplace to hear of tales in our town and across the country where inexperienced, unqualified

letting agents set up and close down after a few months. They leave very unhappy tenants and landlords severely out of pocket, with no protection, insurance or any chance of taking any action whatsoever. Professionals in other areas within the Real Estate industry, for example, Surveyors, Conveyancers and Land Valuers have to be regulated and belong to governing bodies in order to practise. Our field should be no different. I look forward to the day this changes in the U.K. Until then, I implore customers to check that the agency you would like to use is a licensed member of A.R.L.A. (Association of Residential Letting Agents).”

Q A SHARRON CANNING MOVE ON RENTALS 114

Earlier this year the combination boiler in our rented house stopped working, so we had no hot water or central heating. We rang our landlord and he said it had happened before and said we needed to top up the water pressure in the boil via small tap on the boiler. We could not find this tap anywhere and called him back. He then said he was not prepared to pay a plumber to come out for such a small task and said he would come over the following day. Five days later he turned up saying he had got something in his eye and had to go to hospital and could not drive. Meanwhile we had had no heating and no hot water for almost a week during one of the coldest parts of the year. Can I refuse to pay rent for those five days or reduce my rent, or even end my contract early? It is the landlord’s responsibility to ensure that the boiler is working correctly for the provision of hot water and heating - under the statute of section 11 of the Landlord & Tenant Act 1985. The landlord is expected to attend to the problem within a reasonable amount of time, once he is notified of the problem. In this case, it appears that the boiler cut out due to a drop in water pressure. The landlord should have attended to the problem by showing you how to bring the water pressure up to the required level, and then you would have then known how to rectify the problem in the future. The landlord has now resolved this problem but you were without water and heating for five days. You could try and negotiate with the landlord about paying a lower rent for that period but I would not advise you to stop paying rent for that period as it would lead to rent arrears.

What the authors are reading this summer

detective and his young magician partner, Stephanie. "Derek Landy is my sons' favourite author. They were outraged when I only read the first book in the series. At their insistence, I'm catching up, and enjoying the story!"

Her latest book, Love Always, is published by Harper, £7.99 in paperback.

Gerald Seymour

Riordan is author of the Kane Chronicles series, the latest of which is The Throne Of Fire (Puffin, £12.99 hardback).

Peter James Best-selling authors including Jackie Collins, Anthony Horowitz, Adele Parks, Nicci French, Lesley Pearse and Rick Riordan reveal what they will be reading this summer.

Jackie Collins "This summer I'll be sailing from Sicily to Capri on a friend's superyacht as research for my next novel, The Power Trip. "I'll be reading Jilly Cooper's novel Jump! (Corgi, £7.99 paperback). I love Jilly, she's a great storyteller. I'll also be reading The Strip by JJ Salem (Pan, £6.99 paperback) which I've been saving for the trip."

women making their way in New York (Penguin Classics, £8.99) and Furious Love: Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton: The Marriage Of The Century (JR Books, £8.99 paperback) - part research, part because I love them both so much."

"When we go on holiday I pack a book a day, plus another five in case we are hijacked. I like to read other crime thrillers, particularly new authors I'm always looking for that book I put down and go, 'Wow, wish I had written that!' because that's how you learn and develop as a writer. But that hasn't happened since Silence Of The Lambs. "The books I have recently really enjoyed reading are two by new writers, Still Missing by Chevy Stevens (Sphere, £6.99 paperback), Before I Go To Sleep by S J Watson (Doubleday, £12.99 hardback), and a non-fiction, The Invention Of Murder, by Judith Flanders (HarperPress, £20 hardback).

"We are going to northern Spain to find brown bears and wolves, with an expert guide. I enjoy books with a 'heavy' feel to them, solid reading. I'm a big fan of Anthony Summers since I was at News At Ten and he was with Panorama - we scrapped on the road like fighting cocks. "With Robbyn Swan, he's written The Eleventh Day, the definitive account of the 9/11 attacks (Doubleday, August 18, £20 hardback). It will be a masterpiece of research and detail. For more gentle reading, The Defector by Daniel Silva (Penguin, £7.99 paperback) is already in my rucksack with the binoculars." Seymour's latest novel, A Deniable Death, is published by Hodder on August 4, £17.99 in hardback.

Lesley Pearse "I'm going to Russia for my holiday this year. I'm taking four books: Fall Of Giants by Ken Follett (Pan, £8.99 paperback), a huge and meaty book set in the First World War; Water For Elephants (Two Roads, £7.99 paperback) by Sara Gruens as I've always loved circus; The Distant Hours by Kate Morton (Pan, £7.99 paperback), and finally, for research, Somme by Lyn MacDonald (Penguin, £12.99 paperback), one of the best writers about the First World War." Pearse's new paperback, Belle, is published by Penguin, £7.99.

Collins's latest novel, Goddess of Vengeance, is available now (Simon & Schuster, £6.99 paperback).

Rick Riordan

120

"Most of the summer I'll be at home, working on the next book in my Kane Chronicles series. My relaxation will consist of swimming in the pool in the evenings and avoiding the Texas heat during the day. "On my reading list is the fifth Skulduggery Pleasant book, Mortal Coil (HarperCollins, £6.99 paperback), about a fire-throwing skeleton

Peter James's latest novel, Dead Man's Grip, is published by Macmillan, £18.99 in hardback.

Anthony Horowitz

Harriet Evans

"I'm off to Crete for the summer and most of the books I'll be taking with me will relate to the end of the Second World War. For relaxation, I suppose I'll find out what Jeffery Deaver has done to James Bond in Carte Blanche (Hodder & Stoughton, £19.99 hardback). Great title although I'm worried about the modern setting. If Bond had served in Afghanistan wouldn't he (4m) £24.99; Eclectic Cushions now Bollywood be about Bunting 107? Work books in the evening. (four styles: ditsy floral, lime polka dot, blue stripe, red Fun books in the sun. That's the general idea."

"This year, I'm not going on a summer holiday as I'm pregnant and have to finish my new novel. "On holiday, I like to take a big read you can lose yourself in. The Secret History by Donna Tartt (Penguin, £8.99 paperback) is my all-time favourite holiday read. I'm always looking to recreate that. We got delayed at Gatwick for a day and it was brilliant, I just sat in Wimpy and read The Secret History. "My other two recommendations are The Best Of Everything, Rona Jaffe's Fifties novel about young

gingham), £19.99 each; Eclectic place mats, £7.99 each, Butterfly tea light holders (four colours), £3.99 each; Scorpia Rising, Horowitz's Alex£5.99 Ridereach; set Goblet tea light holders (sixfinal colours), novel, published Books, £6.99 in and ofis four coloured by jamWalker jar tea light holders, £12.99 paperback. Eclectic cutlery, £29.99, all from The Contemporary Home


Adele Parks

Ann Cleeves

"I've just booked my hols and we're returning to a regular favourite, LA. The purpose of a holiday is to sit by a pool and devour a fat pile of books. "I'm desperate to read When God Was A Rabbit by Sarah Winman (Headline Review, £7.99 paperback). I'm aware that I'm possibly the last person on the planet to do so but I am so looking forward to reading this, one of the most talked about debut novels of the year, a story about childhood and growing up, spanning four decades from 1968. "I'll also be taking The Lady Of The Rivers by Philippa Gregory (Simon & Schuster, Sept 15, £18.99 hardback). I'm a big fan of her work and no holiday is complete without a bit of imaginative time travel. I have nine days so might be able to squeeze in a third, which will be Lucky Break by Esther Freud (Bloomsbury, £11.99 paperback).

"I'm off to Shetland this summer for a close friend's wedding. Good timing, because after concentrating on my Vera books, I'm in the middle of a Shetland novel. "Much as I love the islands, I know it won't be very warm, so my first reading choice is to take me to the heat and light of the Mediterranean. Translated crime fiction is my reading passion and I love the Montalbano books of Andrea Camilleri. Montalbano is a great creation, witty and unconventional, and the books bring us the smells, tastes and chaos of his native Sicily. The Wings Of The Sphinx (Picador, £7.99 paperback) is one of the best and you'll feel the sunshine even if you're in a caravan on a rainy day." Cleeves's latest Vera Stanhope novel, Silent Voices, is published by Macmillan, £17.99 in hardback

Mark Radcliffe

Parks's latest novel, About Last Night, is published by Headline Review, £14.99 in hardback

Nicci French Sean French says: "I'm going to take Paraphernalia: The Curious Lives Of Magical Things by Steven Connor (Profile, £14.99 hardback). It's about the little objects we carry around with us - buttons and glasses and combs and keys and pins. I'm intrigued because I sometimes think the little things we surround ourselves with and barely notice are as important as the huge things we obsess about. "And I love angry, scary women, so I'll be reading Patti Smith's memoir, Just Kids (Bloomsbury, £8.99 paperback), about her friendship with the equally scary Robert Mapplethorpe. Just the thing to darken sunny days." Nicci Gerrard says: "I'll add to that The Best Of Everything by Rona Jaffe (Penguin Classics, £8.99), which was published in the late Fifties to scandal and praise. It is the feminist version of Mad Men and the classy predecessor of The Women's Room - a candid, compelling, oddly touching novel, satisfyingly crammed with Martinis, whiskies and female friendships." Nicci French's latest novel, Blue Monday, is published by Penguin/Michael Joseph, £12.99 in hardbackhardback

"Reading-wise I have recently been devouring all the Kate Atkinson books. Someone left One Good Turn (Black Swan, £7.99 paperback) at our house in Anglesey and, short of a book, I picked it up and was then hooked for the next three days. I then ordered all the others and the most recent, Started Early, Took My Dog (Black Swan, £7.99), did not disappoint. One other great read I picked up in Waterstone's Macclesfield was History Of A Pleasure Seeker by Richard Mason (Weidenfeld & Nicolson, £12.99 hardback), the tale of a lascivious private tutor in Amsterdam in the early 1900s. Radcliffe's memoir Reelin' In The Years: The Soundtrack Of A Northern Life, is published by Simon & Schuster, £12.99 in paperback.

Karin Slaughter "As I've just finished my US tour for Fallen, I'm having a 'staycation', where all I do is stay home and sit around in my pyjamas reading. "My favourite books, of course, are crime fiction, and I'm always greedy for the new ones from Denise Mina and Mo Hayder. Good Lord, what amazing story-tellers these women are. Hayder's Hanging Hill (Bantam, £12.99 hardback) is a masterpiece. The ending will leave you scratching at the back cover to see if there's a secret extra page that tells you what happens next. Mina's The End Of The Wasp Season (Orion, £12.99 hardback) is equally as spectacular, with an even more disturbing ending." Slaughter's latest thriller, Fallen, is published by Century, £18.99 in hardback.

And from the celebs... Style guru Gok Wan "I haven't booked a holiday this year yet but when I do I'll be looking forward to relaxing on a beach with a good book. I like to read fiction and biographies on holiday normally. Dawn French's A Tiny Bit Marvellous (Penguin, £7.99 paperback) is on my list this year." Wan's autobiography, Through Thick And Thin, is published by Ebury, £7.99 in paperback.

BBC presenter Bill Turnbull "I'll read anything really, so long as it's not too dense; though I do have a bad habit of not quite finishing books. There's a pile of them lying forlornly next to my bed, waiting for the last page to be turned. "So on holiday in Tuscany I'll take The Smell Of Summer Grass (HarperPress, £20 hardback), Adam Nicholson's memories of finding and creating a rural idyll in Sussex - just the sort of thing I'd like to do." Turnbull's book, The Bad Beekeeper's Club, is published by Sphere, £7.99 in paperback.

Fiona Phillips "We've had our fill of queuing and having to get undressed at airports so we're driving to Italy via Switzerland. "I'll be indulging in Dawn French's A Tiny Bit Marvellous because I like her and because I'm curious. I bought Christos Tsiolkas's The Slap at Christmas and haven't read it yet, so I'm packing that and The Dalai Lama's Spiritual Autobiography for a dose of enlightenment."

Phillips's memoir, Before I Forget, is published by Arrow, £7.99 in paperback.

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– Kate Middleton Vs Sarah Jessica Parker This Alexander McQueen number shouts nautical elegance. On this occasion, the best dressed celeb is undoubtedly our British Duchess. Sarah Jessia parker just doesn;t carry off the look so well, instead she is looking more mumsy than magnificent.

Kate Middleton

Sarah Jessica Parker

Right– Victoria Beckham Vs Carol Vorderman In this sexy, figure hugging outfit, we see how it fairs on both a curvaceous figure as well as a skinny frame. We think that Victoria makes this outfit look very harsh and angular, whilst Carol’s curves soften the harsh lines of this dress and make Carol look the epitome of style. As much as we love Victoria and all that she has contributed to fashion, this time Carol and her curves win hands down. 122

Recipe

Sweet & sour mackerel {

{ Serves 4

Ingredients For the sauce: 6tbsp tomato ketchup 2tbsp rice wine vinegar 4tsp soy sauce 2tsp Thai fish sauce 3tbsp sunflower oil 1 onion, sliced 6cm ginger, finely chopped 3 large garlic cloves, chopped 1 small green pepper, sliced 1 finger length dried red chilli, deseeded, broken into 3 pieces 250g cubed fresh pineapple 6tsp cornflour Freshly ground salt and pepper 4 x 150g mackerel fillets, cut into 4cm pieces ½ tsp sea salt Sunflower oil, for shallow frying

method Combine the tomato ketchup with the rice wine vinegar, soy sauce, fish sauce and 175ml water. Leave to one side while you prepare the base for the sauce. Heat the oil in a frying pan and add the sliced onion followed by the ginger, garlic and green pepper - fry for two to three minutes. Add the broken up chilli along with the pineapple, salt and lots of freshly ground black pepper. Stir well and add the combined sauce ingredients to the pan while still over the heat and cook for three to four minutes until the pineapple has softened. Mix the cornflour with enough cold water to make a slack paste and stir into the sauce. Season with salt and plenty of ground black pepper, and simmer for one to two minutes until thickened and glossy. For the fish, mix the sea salt with the cornflour and use to coat the mackerel. Dust off any excess flour and shallow fry in hot oil for three to four minutes until golden and crisp. You might need to do the frying in batches. Drain the mackerel pieces on kitchen paper. Warm the sweet and sour sauce and divide three-quarters of the sauce between four plates. Top with the fried fish pieces and spoon over any remaining sauce. Serve straight away. 131

WORDS– Nick Fletcher

Bumpy ride A third of drivers have had their cars damaged by a pothole, according to the latest poll from road safety charity the IAM. A further 16 per cent have been involved in, or have seen an accident caused by a road user hitting a pothole. Of the 2600 respondents, 88 per cent voted pothole repair the top priority for local council maintenance. Only 14 per cent of people think that their council’s current performance maintaining local roads is good or very good, with more than half rating it as bad or very bad. When asked what areas of road maintenance were being done well, 50 per cent responded ‘none’, and half also think that the roads in their area are getting worse. Overall, Welsh respondents are the happiest with council road maintenance, with 27 per cent rating performance as good. Respondents from the South East are the least happy with local road

maintenance, with only ten per cent rating it as good, although Londoners were an exception to this – 18 per cent rated their council as good. Many comments suggested that local government spending cuts are the cause of these problems – respondents weren’t just negative about the authorities themselves. Keeping foliage and grass cut back to preserve visibility, and annual surface dressing of worn out roads, were the second and third most important maintenance factors, at 64 and 58 per cent respectively.IAM director of policy and research Neil Greig said: “The public is unhappy with the state of their roads, although many realise that spending cuts are the real problem. Eighty per cent of those polled thought that local councils should work more closely together to increase efficiency, and with no loosening of the public purse strings in sight it will take partnerships to ensure the backlog in road maintenance does not continue to stack up.”

TOYOTA named the "GREENEST BRAND" Toyota is the world’s greenest brand, according to a new global survey from the international consultancy Interbrand. The first Best Global Green Brands, just published, takes into account environmental performance coupled with public perception of a brand’s environmental sustainability – its “green profile” – to produce a Green Performance Score. Based on data collected from the world’s leading markets, including the UK, France, Germany, Italy, USA, Japan, Brazil and India, the report gives Toyota a top score of 64.19 points.The Interbrand report says that Toyota is “a leading example of making the environment a core management priority, while also engaging in a meaningful way with audiences around the world”. Toyota’s market-leading development of full hybrid technology is a key contributor to Toyota’s strong green performance, according to the report, notably with Prius – now in its third generation. Since 1997, Toyota and Lexus have amassed more than 3.2 million hybrid vehicle sales worldwide.

The all-new, second generation BMW 1 Series offers occupies "a rewarding combination of agile, precise handling, improved aesthetics and innovative technology," the company says. The model, priced from £19,375, remains the only rear-wheel drive car in its class and,with a range of advanced TwinPower petrol and diesel engines, offers a sporty but fuel-efficient proposition boosted by BMW's EfficientDynamics technologies fitted as standard. Longer and wider than the outgoing model,the new I Series goes on UK on 17 September, with a choice of three diesel and two petrol engines. The car has an additional 30 litres of luggage space compared to its forerunner, taking the total to 360 litres. By lowering the standard 60/40 split rear seats this can be increased to a maximum of 1,200-litres, with the added benefit of a flat load surface. BMW's revolutionary iDrive system is available

as standard on cars with SE specification and above, comprising of a controller on the centre console, Favourites buttons and a freestanding, high-resolution 6.5 inch flatscreen monitor. This display is used for all information, entertainment, telecommunications and navigation functions, should satellite navigation be specified. The new BMW 1 Series is available with either a six-speed manual transmission or a new eight-speed automatic transmission. The latter is available in Sport configuration, featuring more dynamic gear changes and shift paddles on the steering wheel. BMW's EfficientDynamic technologies features intelligent energy management systems, including Auto Start-Stop function in both manual and automatic transmissions - the latter a first-in-class with eight speeds. An ECO PRO mode, activated using the Drive Performance Control (included as standard), is a new feature on BMW's that adjusts various on-board systems to maximise efficiency.

Standard equipment on the all-new Focus Studio includes 16in sports-style alloy wheels, body-coloured rear spoiler, radio/ CD player, USB connectivity, air-conditioning, electrically-operated body-coloured door mirrors with integrated turn indicators, electricallyoperated front windows, Ford Easy Fuel 'capless' refuelling, and Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) with torque vectoring control.

There will be three colour choices – Panther Black, Moondust Silver and Frozen White.

Road test Nissan Leaf Soaring fuel prices mean increasing attention on all-electric cars, and the current – no pun intended – market leader is the Nissan Leaf, which in the UK has sold more than all its rivals put together. It’ll be British-built from 2013 - which might go some way to explaining its popularity on our shores – but more likely is that fact that it travels 34 miles for just £1, which is quite an appealing proposition for motorists tired of shelling out at the pump. The Leaf is well specified, with airconditioning, sat-nav, power windows and mirrors, cruise control, reversing camera and 16”alloy wheels among its features. It’s an attractively styled car too, without the quirky appearance of some of its rivals. The Leaf easily seats 5 adults and is easy to drive, smooth, effortlessly, with light steering and comfortable ride. To get going, you just press the start button (it has keyless entry and starting), shift the gear-lever to ‘drive’, press the accelerator and away you glide. It’s not at all complex. There’s a 7” colour touch screen on board, which offers all the usual sat nav options and also shows recharging points within the car’s range. It can communicate with an iPhone, allowing the driver to check battery status or re-set the car’s temperature without leaving the comfort of home. Probably a pretty welcome feature on a cold morning! It offers 107 hp, top speed is 90mph, the 0-60 mph time 11.9 seconds – comparable to many conventional small cars. Its 109 mile range is more than enough for most journeys – especially bearing in mind that 95% of UK drivers travel less than 62 miles a day. Recognising that there might be times when Leaf drivers need to go further afield, local showroom Westover Nissan in Bournemouth (which also has a quick-charge point which gives an 80 per cent charge in just 30 minutes for any Leaf owners who need a rapid ‘refuel’), will loan a conventional car for up to seven days a year. From a domestic supply a full re-charge can be done overnight (it takes around 10 or 11 hours, less if the battery has residual power and less again from a special Home Charing Unit). It costs around £2.50, and if you are on an Economy 7 Tariff, then about £1.50, so there are substantial savings over petrol or diesel. A full charge will take you about 109 miles (and the car’s computer will keep you updated as to how many miles you have left). You also qualify for zero road tax (and don’t have to pay any congestion charges). For company car drivers it’s exempt from Benefit-In-Kind Tax. When all is considered, the Leaf offers very low-cost motoring and a boost for your green credentials. It comes with a price tag from £25,990 including a £5,000 Government subsidy.

"I was always out and about having fun."

The family way 136

DJ and mum-of-three Sara Cox talks about a new report encouraging parents to enjoy simple fun and games with their children, and the author of a new study discusses how smoking in pregnancy can increase the risk of birth defects.

Most parents remember happily playing as children, enjoying unsupervised, simple fun running around with their friends. Just a generation later, their own children rarely enjoy such simple pleasures, instead spending large amounts of time in front of a TV or computer. This is despite recent surveys finding that the vast majority of children would like more freedom to play outside. Now a new campaign is trying to redress the balance, by encouraging parents to help their children enjoy simple fun and games again. Research by the Dairylea Campaign for Simple Fun found that the majority of parents (74%) believe technology plays too big a part in play, with 58%

saying they're concerned about the amount of time their children spend in front of a screen. Most parents (84%) feel childhood is more complicated for kids today, so the campaign wants to uncomplicate it a little by getting parents to revive the memories and fun times from their own childhood. The campaign is supported by DJ and mum-of-three Sara Cox, who's been revisiting some of the games and pastimes of her youth to help promote the benefits of simple fun. She says: "I remember lots of games from my childhood - from calling on friends who lived in my neighbourhood and playing chase in the street, to playing British Bulldog and games like rounders.


She says one of her favourite childhood pastimes was to make dens, and stresses: "I think games like that really encourage children to use their imagination and spend time in their own little worlds, which is important as kids these days can sometimes have a lot on their plates with homework and computers and the lure of the TV." Cox says she's been re-learning the rules to old games she'd forgotten about, such as sardines, French cricket and marbles, and has been playing them with her children at home. She adds: "All busy mums know that it can be a real struggle at the end of a long day to find the energy to get out and play with the kids - especially when their favourite TV programmes are on. "But what I've learned is that if I teach them a game or something fun and simple to play, if they enjoy it they're likely to try it again." The Simple Fun Report also showed that today's children have less contact with their friends than in the past - only 16% played with friends every day outside school, compared to 40% of their parents who played with friends daily as a child. Research by Natural England has found that more than 80% of children would like more freedom to play outside, yet more than half the parents (66%) questioned for the Simple Fun campaign said that children lacked the freedom they had as a child, often because of the parents' safety fears. These fears mean 57% of nine-year-olds are restricted to playing within sight of their home, with 29% unable to venture out of the grounds, despite parents (44%) admitting to playing in secret dens in wooded areas and local parks when they were young. Childhood expert Tim Gill, who wrote the Simple Fun Report, says: "Magical things can happen when children enjoy the kind of simple fun that only happens when they leave their screens behind. "They become more active, and we all know how important that is for their health and wellbeing, and they find out what it's like to follow their own imaginations and impulses, rather than relying on a TV, computer or gadget." He says that by having a taste of freedom and adventure, children learn how to sort out their problems and differences, which helps to prepare them for the ups and downs of life. Stressing that the best simple games can be played by anyone, old or young, he adds: "This kind of open-ended, intergenerational play is disappearing from the lives of many children, yet it's really important in helping them build a sense of how the wider world works."

How to introduce simple fun – 1. Remember your own childhood - what you liked doing, where and who with, and why those experiences mattered. 2. Try to take a balanced, thoughtful approach to risk and supervision. Encourage your children to try things for themselves, to decide what they're capable of, and to sort out their arguments and disputes whenever they can. 3. Look for opportunities to give your children everyday adventures and simple pleasures that feed their imaginations, and their appetite for freedom and responsibility. Find local outdoor spaces parks, nature areas, woodlands - that you can get to easily and regularly. 4. At home, give your children the chance to play with loose materials such as boxes, old clothing and household items that encourage open-ended, flexible activities and games. 5. Help your children spend more time with their friends, and when they do, give them more freedom and control over what they do. Try to make play dates less structured and more fun. 6. Won't worry too much about mess, mud or dirt - that's what vacuum cleaners and washing machines are for. 137

Urban Farm

Urban growth spurt

Ethics, seasonality and sustainability are three things at the very heart of the Urban Beach hotel and the Urban Reef restaurant, in Boscombe, Bournemouth. In fact, they are so ingrained in the ethos that Urban owner, Mark Cribb, recently decided to lease a piece of land out in Sopley, the New Forest, so the team could start growing their own fruit and veg. Entrepreneur Mark has always been very conscious of where he sources produce from and where possible always sources it locally. However, this was at times proving difficult as many suppliers were involved in contracts selling fruit and veg only to larger businesses and organisations. This combined with a desire to educate people, both the customers and the team, as to where the food on their plates actually comes from, were the catalysts for what Mark calls, ‘The Urban Farm’. The piece of land, roughly one acre, was planted earlier this year and has already produced crop including, lettuce, ‘red duke’ and ‘home guard’ potatoes, red and white beetroot and artichokes to name just a few items. These ingredients have been used at both Urban Beach and Urban Reef within some of the specials dishes. Eventually Mark would like to use the Urban produce within the core menus. Mark Cribb said: “To me there is nothing better than a customer sitting down for a meal, speaking to their server to ask what they’d recommend from the menu and their server being able to reply with some fantastic knowledge such as, ‘I’d recommend the dish on the specials board tonight as the asparagus served with it is in season for 10 weeks of the year in the UK and we picked them fresh this morning.’ If I got this kind 136x190 House 4-11:Brotherwood 12/4/11 09:33 Page 1 of detailed response in a restaurant I’d be absolutely stunned. Of course I realised that I wouldn’t be able to

get this kind of buy in from my staff unless they were directly involved in some way, so I’ve invited them all out to the farm so they can see it all for themselves. I have also employed a full-time ‘farmer’ to look after everything on a daily basis, but the more of the Urban team that can get down there and get involved with a bit of planting or digging, the better. “I haven’t undertaken this project to save or make money, in fact I’m probably going to make a loss on it. It has already cost £2,000 to purchase a walk-along tractor, £1,000 to hire the field and then there’s the cost of our farmer, the seeds etc. I don’t think we’ll get the value of stock that we’ve put into it this year, but ultimately if we can break even within a couple of years that would be fantastic. “This year has been our first attempt at ‘growing our own’, we’ve learnt a lot already and have had some fun doing it, but we’re aware that we’ll probably need to prepare our land a little earlier for 2012. Nonetheless, it’s great to see our vision starting to come to life. Who knows what we’ll manage to achieve in the future, perhaps a small holding with pigs and chickens?” For enquiries contact katie@urbanreef.com Tel: 07791 281880.

Aniston talks dirty— Jennifer Aniston doesn’t so much shake off her ‘America’s Sweetheart’ tag as rip it off and stamp on it, thanks to her new role as a nymphomaniac dentist in Horrible Bosses, in cinemas now. The American actress talks about releasing her inner dominatrix, coping with criticism and how she looks back on being everyone’s favourite Friend.

140

Fans of Jennifer Aniston the world over think they know her. So any thudding noises you hear coming from cinemas this summer will be jaws dropping to the ground at her antics in new film Horrible Bosses. In the comedy, in which three thirtysomething men set out to murder their hideous bosses, she plays a nymphomaniac dentist called Dr Julia Harris. Aniston can be heard spouting the sort of filth that would make a call girl blush and has trouble keeping her lab coat buttoned up while sexually harassing her dental assistant Dale, played by Charlie Day. “I’ve never had a script come to me that allowed me to go in this direction,” says Aniston, who claims it wasn’t a meditated move to finally wave goodbye to her good girl image. “I took the part because I loved it. And I thought it’d be a fun challenge to step out of what people usually see me do. You don’t want to play it safe all the time.” Her choice of outfit today marks a new look too. Gone are the usual jeans and vest top and in their place is a black leather-look mini dress and studded, strappy sandals that show off her new tattoo ‘Norman’, which she had done in memory of her beloved dog who recently died. Sporting a deep Malibu tan, her newly bobbed hair is sun-kissed blonde and the makeup’s low key, which allows her blue eyes to take centre stage. Then there’s the body: finely honed from a daily ritual of spinning, circuit training and yoga, which leaves her with arms to rival Michelle Obama. At 42, she’s looking incredible and it’s a credit to Aniston that she’s achieved that hallowed feat: a sex symbol who appeals to women the world over.


Just don’t make the mistake of asking her why she thinks this is. “Oh God, I never know what to say to that question,” Aniston wails looking embarrassed and putting her head in her manicured hands. “They like my shoes?” she offers. “No, I don’t know how to answer that question, I honestly don’t. I love girls, maybe that’s why.” But it’s Horrible Bosses director Seth Gordon who Aniston has to thank for casting her against type. “It was really important to find an actress who could play Julia with all the intensity and delicious naughtiness the role deserves, and I thought it would be even better if it was someone audiences wouldn’t expect,” he says. And it is radically different from any of her, often bland, rom com roles. Aniston puts in a fearless performance. “It’s very vulgar and very rude, but that’s why it’s fantastic. It’s so outrageous, you get to have complete abandon and not worry if you’re being inappropriate at all. I loved that,” she says. By way of preparation for the role, Aniston channelled some stereotypically masculine behaviour: “I thought of her as a guy, which made it that much more fun.” Besides, she thinks it’s about time women were portrayed differently in films. “Men are intimidated by any woman who’s sexually confident, no matter what age, and I think it’s nice to finally see that.” Aniston admits she’s never felt more comfortable with her life, and perhaps that’s something to do with her new man, the actor Justin Theroux, who tabloids are excitedly exclaiming to be ‘The One’.

The fact they reportedly have matching gold knuckle dusters (she’s wearing hers on her engagement finger) has only added to speculation, but Aniston won’t be drawn on the subject.

Instead, she says: “I think I absolutely get more comfortable in my body - and in who I am - as I get older, way more than when I was in my 20s. I was just so awkward and uncomfortable,” she says. Of Greek descent, Aniston was born in California but spent a year of her childhood in Greece, before relocating to New York when her actor father, John, landed a role on the daytime drama Love Of Life. She had her first taste of acting at the age of 11 at the Rudolf Steiner School’s drama club, before moving on to New York’s High School of the Performing Arts. After graduation, she won roles in off-Broadway productions. “I started out in New York, in things that

aren’t remembered,” she laughs. “I love the theatre and I’d love to go back to it, if the right thing presented itself.” In 1989, she landed her first television role as a series regular on Molloy, followed by roles in Ferris Bueller, Quantum Leap and Burke’s Law. Then in 1994 she starred as ditzy Rachel Green in Friends. By the time the final episode aired 10 years later, she’d amassed six Emmy Award nominations, seven Screen Actors Guild Award nominations and two Golden Globe nominations. “I still get people referring to me as Rachel,” she says, fondly. Though she’s branched out into darker projects such as The Good Girl opposite Jake Gyllenhaal and the thriller Derailed alongside Clive Owen, it’s the roster of rom coms, from Along Came Polly and Marley & Me to The Switch and Just Go With It, for which she’s become synonymous. Speaking in a voice that sounds a little weary, she admits critics haven’t always been kind about her abilities or film choices, and says she wouldn’t mind if she felt the comments were justified. “It feels really personal, as opposed to constructive critiques of the performances. It hurts and it’s really inconsistent,” she says. As the subject of worldwide tittle-tattle for the past two decades, perhaps it’s no surprise to hear she’s ready to embrace time away from the intense media spotlight. “Yes, I’m going to take a break,” she says. “Travel, live a little, I don’t know what I’m going to do. And that...” she adds with a grin, “is the fun part.” Perhaps she might have time to plan a wedding...

Extra time — Jennifer Aniston • She was born in February 1969, in California. • Her godfather is the late Telly Savalas, aka Kojak. • She’s a keen artist and at 11 saw one of her paintings displayed at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art. • At 19, she was a bike messenger in New York: “I’m very uncoordinated, extraordinarily klutzy and I should never have been allowed on a bicycle with cylinders.” • In 2006, Aniston made her directorial debut with the short film Room 10. • Horrible Bosses is in cinemas now. 141

DATE NIGHT

tuesday, 16 August 2011, 10PM sky movies comedy

What's It About? A married couple, whose relationship has turned a bit on the stale side, plan a date night. Deciding on a trendy restaurant in the middle of New York, they find the place is full to bursting and so take up the reservation of a couple who fail to show. They soon regret it, though, when they realise that the people whose table they've taken are in debt to gangsters and the hitmen are on their trail. Is It Any Good? The chances are that anything that Steve Carell puts his well-respected name to is going to be worth a watch. What kicks all of his other efforts out of the ballpark in this, though, is the chemistry between him and co-star Tina Fey. Pitting two of the funniest people of the last few years against each other on the big screen proves to be an act of genius - and of course brings laughs a plenty. We also love the addition of Mark Wahlberg as the weapons expert - Can we have his apartment please?! Anything Else? Film buffs with a beady eye should keep an eye out for Mark Wahlberg's shirtless scenes. Every one of them was filmed carefully at specific angles to avoid showing a tattoo of Bob Marley on his left shoulder. Starring: Tina Fey, Steve Carell, Mark Wahlberg

GLEE 3rd season TBC, SKY 1 + SKY 1HD

The Emmy® and Golden Globe®-winning musical comedy comes to Sky 1 HD soon with its third season, airing just days after its US broadcast. Glee is, quite simply, a pop culture phenomenon. An instant success when it launched in 2009, the series follows an Ohio high school teacher’s efforts to inspire a group of oddball teenagers to realise their star potential and revitalise the school’s show choir to its former glory. Also tackling issues such as sexuality, bullying and teen pregnancy, Glee ranges from the heart-felt to the hysterical. Led by Will Schuester (Matthew Morrison), McKinley High’s glee club, New Directions, is a group of social misfits. Ambitious star vocalist Rachel Berry (Lea Michele); the school’s only openly gay student Kurt (Golden Globe® winner Chris Colfer); dimwitted dance supremo Brittany (Heather Morris); sexually confused Santana (Naya Rivera); and the physically disabled Artie (Kevin McHale) are just some of the kids who make up the group. Although all different, they share the same dream of fitting in and triumphing at the National Show Choir Championships. Season two saw the teens reach Nationals in

New York, although on their adventure in the Big Apple they failed to rank in the top ten. But, their dreams are still alive as we enter this third run... Series co-creator, writer and executive producer Ryan Murphy (Nip/Tuck) has hinted at what we can look forward to. As well as welcoming the winner of reality show The Glee Project to the cast, this latest outing is set to give major storylines to powerhouse diva Mercedes (Amber Riley) and the loved-up Mike (Harry Shum Jr) and Tina (Jenna Ushkowitz). Meanwhile, cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester (Golden Globe® winner Jane Lynch) is set to turn her attention to politics as she runs for Congress: “It’s time for Sue to stop picking on the glee club and time for her to start picking on the country,” says Murphy. And, romance may be on the cards for her too. “One thing I’m looking for is someone for Sue Sylvester to love. Who is that person – man or woman? Who is man enough to love Sue Sylvester?” As well as welcoming a team of new faces to the Glee writers’ room for season three, including Buffy and Angel alumni Marti Noxon, it has been confirmed that recurring guest star Darren Criss will become a series regular as Kurt’s boyfriend, Blaine.


JERemy irons carries out some dirty work in the name of the family the borgais Saturdays, 9:00PM, sky atlantic hd

Jeremy Irons heads a cast of British talent in new drama The Borgias, which started on Sky Atlantic last Saturday. Young rising British stars Holliday Grainger and David Oakes open up about life in Renaissance Rome. If the headlines in today's papers seem shocking, then take a journey back to 15th century Rome, where one power-hungry family dynasty was accused of a litany of heinous crimes. Sky Atlantic's latest sumptuous drama series is based on the real lives of the Borgias, for whom incest, adultery, rape, bribery and murder were all par for the course in their battle to stay top dogs in the Italian capital. In the first episode viewers see head of the family Rodrigo Borgia (played by Jeremy Irons) bribe his fellow cardinals, with the help of son Cesare (Canadian actor Francois Arnaud), to ensure he is selected Pope Alexander VI. "As soon as you're playing people that have power, there are a lot of parallels with today, whether it's in the banking industry or in politics," says David Oakes, who plays Juan, Rodrigo's favourite son and head of the papal army. "Without sounding corny, with great power comes great responsibility and within this storyline you see people do good and people trying to do good but doing bad. Can you ever please everyone all the time?" Rodrigo's innocent-seeming daughter Lucrezia is a pawn in the Borgias' political power struggle, married off at 13 so the family can forge an alliance with the powerful Sforzas. After an eye-catching turn as the buxom blonde Tess in Any Human Heart, Holliday Grainger plays Lucrezia, whose abusive marriage hardens her heart. Despite having an Italian grandfather, the 23-year-old admits she knew little about the notorious family before she auditioned.

"As soon as I started researching Italian Renaissance history, I found it fascinating, just the power games everyone was playing and these grand opulent lifestyles they all led," she says, curling her legs up onto a velveteen sofa. "Lucrezia Borgia is an amazing character to play because there have been so many different interpretations of her. "Historically she has such an awful reputation as an incestuous, adulterous, manipulative poisoner, which may have been fabricated by the Borgias' enemies, or may be true. "It's great that you see her from such a young age in this, when she's got such a strong moral centre. You witness the abuse she goes through, how she's used by different people and creates a hard backbone to deal with it." If Grainger sounds wiser than her years, perhaps it's because she's been acting since she was six, and will soon be on the big screen starring with Judi Dench in Jane Eyre, and as Estella in a Mike Newell film adaptation of Great Expectations. The first series of The Borgias was shown in the US back in April this year and recommissioned within weeks of the first episode airing. Grainger and her co-star Oakes are heading out to Budapest, which doubles for Rome, for another six-month shoot. "I fly out on Sunday after finishing this play I'm doing and then I'm back in Borgia world - it sounds like a weird theme park doesn't it?" says Oakes, 27, the son of a Church of England canon, who played the incestuous evil son of Sarah Parish in Channel 4's Pillars Of The Earth last year. "What's quite exciting is that Juan is the lecherous, debauched, crazy one and, to an extent, provides a lightness throughout the series. "But beneath that is this massive paternity struggle. Although he's the favourite son, he's failed to live up to that on every single occasion. You see him stumble and fall at the cost of both his family and Rome." The Borgias has all the trappings of a lavish costume drama, complete with horses, swordfighting and plenty of bodice-ripping. "Later on in the series, when we were filming the big army scenes, I was on horseback for a

week," says Grainger. "It sounds bad, but it was such good fun. David and I kept trotting off on our horses in between takes. They were like, 'No, come back' and we were like, 'Sorry, but we're in a big field on a horse, let us play!" For Oakes, who grew up around horses in the New Forest, the scenes were literally a walk in the park. "I had the same horse as I had on Pillars, called Smart. So I would just gallop off on my own and get into loads of trouble," explains the actor. He's also a dab hand with a sword, thanks to training at drama school. "I see it more as a dance, as it's all about balance. There's no point thrusting if you can't withdraw instantaneously," he says, totally straight-faced. "Fighting in the Renaissance was ceremonial, about the honour of going out to duel." But some of Juan's on-screen activities are less gentlemanly. "There are orgies and I do a bit of raping," he concedes. "As long as you get on with the people you're doing it to, it's fine. "My first ever proper sex scene is in episode seven and it was freezing - we shot it in November and it was snowing outside. "We were naked inside this polystyrene hut, shivering, clutching onto each other for body heat and there was nothing sexual about it at all. It was just, 'Let's get through this'." Grainger's character Lucrezia has to endure being raped by her abusive husband several times. "TV schedules being what they are, it was all shot at the same time, so it was literally a full day of rape," she says. "It's slightly surreal, but I didn't find it traumatising at all. You put yourself in that mindset when they say, 'Action', but as soon as they say, 'Cut', there's a boom mike stuck in your face. "Yeah, there's a random guy in between your legs, but he's a guy that you've just been out for dinner with the night before, so you're just chatting and making jokes." She adds with a laugh: "I remember we were lying there and he said, 'Is my codpiece hurting you?'"

peter andre: here 2 help thursday 18 August, 9pm, itv2

144

Peter Andre and his team are Here 2 Help in Thame, Oxfordshire. They’ve gone to help the local Carnival Committee who have applied to Here 2 Help as they need Peter to help turn around the annual Carnival which has been a disaster over recent years. With last years’ attendance almost non-existent and just two floats in the parade, they’re hoping Peter and Team Andre can help revitalise the carnival, get the community involved, raise money for charity and bring the feeling of Rio de Janeiro to the sleepy town of Thame. Peter’s first step is to door step the local council and get himself and Team Andre on the carnival committee. He decides the first thing the Carnival needs is promotion and hits the streets to spread

the wings during the audition rounds through to the tears, celebrations and excitement of the live shows until the winner of The X Factor 2011 is crowned. As in previous years, the contestants will audition in four categories: Boys (16 - 24 years), Girls (16 - 24 years), Overs and the Groups. Each judge will ultimately mentor one of the categories. Caroline Flack and Olly Murs will host The Xtra Factor on ITV2. The official website is xfactor.itv.com or follow @TheXFactor for updates

the word. From then it’s all guns blazing and Peter’s striking deals left right and centre to ensure the whole town turns out and to up the number of floats. Peter also promises to put on a Team Andre float, but striking a deal for a 44-foot truck is no mean feat. Peter has also promised he can get the mardi gras feel to come to Thame and does a deal with a local Samba band. The committee and team Andre pounce on local shops to get prizes for a raffle, they’re aim to raise as much money for local charities as they can. Peter also visits a charity, Thomley Hall, an activity centre for disabled children, and gets an insight into just how important it is for the Carnival to be a success and raise money. Peter also drops in on local Thame resident Robin Gibb of the Bee Gees, who’s impressed that Peter and his team are willing to take on such a challenge in such a small space of time...


seven dwarves tuesday 16 August, 9pm, channel 4

Unless you're the director of a big supermarket chain, it's far too soon to be thinking about Christmas, but the festive period is one in which dwarf actors can really earn their pay - and this being the case, it's on their minds year-round. This insightful series follows seven dwarf actors as they live together and perform in a production of Snow White at Woking's New Victoria Theatre. In this first instalment, telemarketer-by-day Max and the rest of the group attend rehearsals ahead of panto season, but as a seasoned performer he takes it upon himself to place some of the younger cast under his wing, offering constructive criticism and seeing to it that a quick trip to the pub turns into a full-scale karaoke session. As the group members get to know one another, they settle into daily life together and enjoy some nights out on the town in Woking - an event that always proves colourful, to say the least; Look Out For: People's reactions to the group on various nights out. Twenty-year-old Josh says: "It's always the bigger women that tend to grab me, and swing me around and shove my head in their breasts." Nice.

who wants to be millionaire saturday 20 August, 9.15pm, itv1

Stars from Coronation Street, Emmerdale and Hollyoaks aim for the million. Viewers are in for a treat this summer with a double dose of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? featuring their favourite past and present soap stars answering questions live, to raise as much money as possible for their chosen charities. The Live Celebrity Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? Soaps Stars Weekend will take place on Saturday 20 at 9.15pm and Sunday 21 August at 9pm on ITV1. Coronation Street, Emmerdale and Hollyoaks unite – not only to win money for their chosen charities, but also to raise a wad of cash for one lucky viewer at home. The pot will continue to build over the two shows, potentially creating the biggest ever viewer prize on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? Teaming up with Coronation Street’s longest serving resident, Michelle Collins joins William Roache. Plus putting their turbulent relationship to one side, Emmerdale’s mother and son partnership, Danny Miller and Lucy Pargeter, join forces on Saturday 20 August, in an attempt to win big. “I’ve grown up watching Chris Tarrant on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? so getting into the hot seat is going to be very daunting!” said Danny. Lucy added “I’ve downloaded the Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? app on my phone but we’ve yet to get past £1,000!” On Sunday 21 August Coronation Street and Hollyoaks unite with Rovers Return barmaid, Kym Marsh, joining her fiancé Jamie Lomas - who will be the brains of this Soap Star pairing? Emmerdale’s long serving double act, Mark Charnock

and Dominic Brunt, also hit the hot seat, but can slow witted Marlon and bumbling Paddy win the million jackpot? Finally Hollyoaks McQueen sisters Gemma Merna and Jennifer Metcalfe try to shake their ditzy image in an attempt to climb the money tree. Commenting about his involvement in the show, Mark Charnock said: “It’s such an iconic show and I’ve always wanted to do it, but I can imagine Dominic and I will be clinging to each other, panicking, going red and sweating!"With further Soap Star pairings still to be announced, who will prove to be street wise and who will be a square when playing against the Millionaire ticking clock? Overseeing proceedings is quiz master Chris Tarrant and the cash won by the contestants will be shared 50/50 between their charities and a lucky viewer. A special Soap Star Weekend, including a trip to the set of Emmerdale and a stay in a luxury hotel and spa in the Yorkshire countryside, is also up for grabs. Produced by Victory Television, part of Sony Pictures Television, Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? originally launched in the UK in 1998 and its popularity quickly spread around the world. Thirteen years on, the format has been sold in 120 countries, producing dozens of millionaires around the globe.
