Great reasons to choose shutters::

Ambient Lighting

M

Mrs J -

May 20

11

Shutters allow in much more light than an net curtains so can increase light in a room while also giving you privacy. When closed, shutters block out the light much more effectively than most ern ns ns. curtains so can help with sleep patterns. Shutters will redirect the light to help p prevent furniture and curtains fading. g.

Health

Mrs P - June 2010

Shutters are not fabric therefore they nd d help people who suffer from eczema and dust allergies resulting from fabrics.

Privacy Shutters offer more privacy - it is much harder to see into a house which has shutters fitted.

Security Shutters offer security, you will feel more secure in your home with shutters.

Maintenance

Mrs M - JJun M une 2200 009

Mrs T - S Septe eptem mber ber 22008 008

Shutters need no maintenance and no painting.

And why choose us?? We are a local family company offering g n affordable prices. We are specialists in the field, only working with Plantation Shutters - NOTHING ELSE.

Lamco will then design MisuraEmme wardrobes specifically for the customer where everything has been considered. Soft closing doors can be made to automatically open with the lightest of touches, with interior LED lighting illuminating simultaneously. MisuraEmme also offers the pioneering TV-LUX (as pictured on previous page) this wardrobe uses the worlds slimmest TV which is mounted behind an anthracite mirror door to reveal an image that is then projected when switched on, but is invisible when switched off. Inside there’s a choice of interior which includes unique, contemporary linen finish inspired and collaborated by Giorgio Armani. The wardrobes themselves can be colour matched to any interior space and are also available in a choice of high gloss lacquers, glass, and wood veneers. Completing the bedroom, MisuraEmme offer the highest quality beds in a range of leathers and fabrics. With a wide range of bedside cabinets to match, together with wall paneling and even classic, award winning, single seater

A strong national demand for private rented housing is being reflected in Poole and Bournemouth, according to Quay Living. The most recent survey from the RICS confirmed that 25% more Chartered Surveyors reported a rise in demand, rather than a fall, and Quay Living has just had its busiest month to date for long-term lets, since the sister brand to Quay Holidays was established at the start of the year. With prospective tenants exceeding the number of properties available to rent in the area, Quay is encouraging existing holiday-let investors and potential landlords to consider longer lets for the winter months to help fulfil demand across Poole, Sandbanks and West Bournemouth. In September Quay Living saw lettings agreed on 14 properties, including nine apartments and five houses in the Baiter Park, Poole Quay, Harbour Reach,

Alum Chine and Sandbanks areas. These properties ranged from a one bedroom flat in Poole Old Town to a stunning four bedroom house in Sandbanks. Helen Challis, partner of Quay Living said, “Our reputation for offering highquality properties means that we attract excellent tenants, both personal and corporate, and our in-house service team can offer added-value services, which enhance the attractiveness to busy professionals, whilst maximising rent for landlords. Clients who signed up with us in September are already making over £16,000 collectively in rent every month.” Quay Living is Regulated by RICS and offers a full range of letting and management services. To find out more about Quay Living, call 01202 683333, or visit www.quayliving.co.uk.

Property let within 3 hours by Knights Knights Lettings are celebrating, after letting a property within 3 hours. The flat which had been on the market for some time had only been offered to David Stewart, Knights Lettings partner at 10 O’clock in the morning, yet was let by 1 O’clock. Knights started their lettings department in August and David has been delighted at the level of interest and activity he has seen in such a short period of time. ‘Knights have a great reputation and because of this the public

have been very responsive in acknowledging our lettings team as well’ said David. ‘ We have worked very hard to show a continuity of advertising, customer service and personal dealings with our clients, that has been the trade mark of the Sales business and the customers have been quick to appreciate this’ he concluded. If you are thinking of letting a property or have been trying for some time with little success then please contact David on 01202 533338.

SMALL but perfectly formed

42


If you're feeling cramped at home, it's not your imagination. A new report by the Royal Institute of British Architects has revealed that new build houses are now 8% smaller than they were in the 1980s, when rules on living space were lifted. Gabrielle Fagan discovers the space-saving furniture and storage solutions to make the most of every inch. Urging the family to diet, declutter or just breathe in simultaneously are some of the ways to cope with a home that's bursting at the seams. It may be a small comfort to know that it's not just your growing children, possessions and pets which are making even the largest space feel claustrophobic - homes have actually shrunk! A new report by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), has revealed that new houses are generally smaller than they were 30 years ago. On average, a new three-bedroom house in the UK is 8% smaller than the recommended minimum size. "Our new research confirms thousands of cramped houses - shameful shoebox homes - are being churned out all over the country," says Harry Rich, chief executive of RIBA. Nationally, the organisation found that the missing space was equivalent to a single bedroom capable of taking a single bed, bedside table, wardrobe, desk and chair. But instead of despairing or considering an expensive house move, it could be time to consider whether you're using your current space wisely and if its layout suits the way you want to live. "If your home is small, or not as large as you'd like, every bit of it has to work for its keep," says Elizabeth Wilhide, whose inspiring book Small Spaces is packed with clever ideas. "You may be able to discover hidden space in homes that's been overlooked, as well as using space more effectively. "A spare room could double as an office, a breakfast bar might improve a kitchen and a large bedroom could be divided. "Storage can work wonders, too. Space under the stairs could provide an additional seating area, or be a utility cupboard. Stair treads can be transformed into drawers and a landing could be utilised for storage or a fitted desk." Designers, recognising the growing need for compact or multi-functional pieces, have used their talents to create excellent furniture and ingenious products for the space-starved. "Small space living is something to celebrate. It doesn't have to mean settling for second best," insists Wilhide. "Focus on the benefits rather than the frustrations. Smaller spaces are easy to clean and cheaper to heat and run. With a more flexible approach to arranging your living space, you may find it suits you after all." Follow our space-savvy advice from the experts and check out a selection of smart solutions to help you squeeze every last inch from your home.

"Don't neglect the potential of hallways and between-spaces, such as landings or corridors," says Elizabeth Wilhide. "Fit them out with cupboards and shelves so you can decant clutter from other areas, or simply make them practical working areas." Space stretchers: A bespoke Shoe Ladder unit, from £350 (plus cabinet cost), from Inhouse Interiors, can be fitted under stairs. Roma's Mobile Home Office unit, £999, from STORE, has a desktop attachment which can tilt and swivel to 360 degrees. Small solutions: Conceal storage box with seat, £249, from Dwell; SpaceBox's wall-mounted table/ desk, £273 and Crossover stackable storage or seating unit, £113, is from a range from Mac&Mac Interiors.

"Make the most of every inch of space with integral storage solutions, such as pan drawers, curved corner units and cantilever carousels," advises Jude Keenan, kitchen planner at John Lewis's Oxford Street London store. "Choose units in a neutral colour that will stand the test of time and create a feeling of space, and introduce colour on worktops and appliances for a more individual look. "Opt for slimline appliances or integral models which can be hidden away. Reflect more light and create an illusion of more space with a white matt ceiling and light coloured upper walls." Space stretchers: A Padstow two-door larder unit, £1,499, from Marks & Spencer, is a new gem in its range. It has six roomy drawers, two condiment racks and an automatic internal light. Bosch have released a dishwasher, £399, that's barely bigger than a microwave and takes six place settings. If there's no room for that useful kitchen island - no problem! A Denford Butchers trolley, £700, provides an extra worktop, baskets and drawers. Both items available from John Lewis. Small solutions: An Expanding Shelf Organiser, £11, from The Holding Company, maximises cupboard space by providing extra shelves. Stellar's Eazistore range of saucepans, frying pans and stockpots stack and nestle inside each other like Russian dolls. Pans, £185 for the set; Stockpots and casserole set, £225.

"To make the most of small spaces, it's important to consider the place as a whole," says Eleanor Davies, group buyer for The Conran Shop. "Instead of thinking of conventional rooms devoted to separate functions, arrange whatever space you have in a flexible way. "Screens, room dividers and furniture which folds can be invaluable," she says. "Above all, focus on acquiring only what you will use, love or need. That way your home will be functional as well as beautiful." Designer Sir Terence Conran's Pavilion round gate-leg table, £495, is just one of the space-saver classics in its range. Space stretchers: BoConcept's multi-functional solutions are impressive: an adjustable Occa 3200 table, £1,195, works as a coffee table, raises to sofa height for TV suppers, and at full height, with built-in extension leaf, can accommodate eight for dinner. The company's cube-shaped Occa 3500 mobile cabinet, £1,395, is similarly useful and works as a dining area, bar or home office. Or try zoning separate areas in a room with a Balance room divider and shelf unit, £670, from STORE. Small solutions: A white compact Rotate Bookcase, with four circular sections, £299, from Dwell. An Evelyn large footstool doubles as a bed, and is £399, from DFS.

how big is your home? -

New homes in Yorkshire and Humber are the smallest and those in London the largest, according to the research by RIBA, which looked at 3,418 homes in England. Its recommended minimum size for a three-bedroom home is 96 square metres, yet our local average is more like 87 square metres. 44

"Living in a compact space doesn't necessarily mean you have to live uncomfortably," says Zoe Shields, country manager at BoConcept, a furniture company which specialises in contemporary ranges. "Good storage always helps - whether it's a bed allowing you hide away bedding or seasonal duvets, or a mobile cabinet, with deep drawers and extension leaves, which can double as a work station. Sofa beds are also shedding their old image of being bulky and large, and can now be sleek and sophisticated." Space stretchers: Wall beds work wonders: La Literal's collection for Sellex includes single, double, twin and bunk bed formats. Single bed, without mattress, £1,633, from Encompass Furniture. Alternatively, a bed offering storage drawers and a pull out bed underneath could be just as useful. Try the handsome Buddy bed, £899, from Dwell. Bulky wardrobes eat up space, but Sliderobes systems, from £1,500, offer made-to-measure wardrobe and cupboard solutions, and could be invaluable for fitting out awkward spaces. John Lewis's slim fivedrawer Loft chest, £799, with a mirror concealed in the top compartment offers another solution for bedroom clutter. Small solutions: Store out-of-season clothes in Space Saver Vacuum Hanging Bags, £20.95, or in an Underbed Storage Case, £12.95. Both from The Holding Company.

Make a Splash The bathroom should be a haven of tranquillity and serenity, especially at the end of the day. The bath plays the biggest part in creating that relaxing corner of the home. There are a few factors to consider when choosing and installing a new bath, but design and appearance comes high up on the importance list. Here we provide a few tips on consideration to bear in mind when choosing a bath based on both funcation and aesthetics.

MATERIAL

Surface finish

The two main materials used for baths are steel and acrylic, but essentially there is little difference in the user experience between an acrylic bath and a steel bath as long as either one is from a good manufacturer, purchased from a reputable retailer, and installed correctly.

Steel: Good quality steel baths are finished with a hardwearing enamelled surface that will give many years of trouble free use. Please be aware however that should the enamel become damaged it will need professional attention to repair it and the bath may need replacing.

The following outlines the main differences:

Acrylic: Good quality acrylic (those manufactured from sanitary grade acrylic) will also give many years of trouble free use with the added advantage that small surface scratches and blemishes can be polished out using 'T' Cut or a similar mild buffing agent. more elaborate.

Roundell New The Roundell solid surface bath is cast in unique Cian material. The colour goes all the way through and is not just a thin top coat as is normally found on this shape of bath. It is an elegant circular shaped freestanding bath. £4794, www.bcdesigns.co.uk

New Magnus Bath The Magnus is a fantastic, solid cast 1 piece bath made from CIAN. The colour goes all the way through, no thin Gel coat to break through...no hollow ringing sound. Scratches and marks can be easily removed. With a built in overflow set in the solid walls of the bath, Magnus is truly a magnificent bath to enhance any bathroom , modern or traditional. £4794, www.bcdesigns.co.uk

DESIGN Steel: Due to the high cost of moulding tools and the relative inflexibility of the material steel baths tend to be simpler in design. Acrylic: The manufacturing process is simpler, the tools are cheaper, and the material is much easier to mould therefore designs can be much more elaborate.

Cooke & Lewis Helena Bathroom Toilet, basin, pedestal, acrylic bath £1036 Eclipse Quadrant shower enclosure £799 B&Q www.diy.com

57


Thermal properties Steel: Steel conducts heat well and so the water in a steel bath will cool more rapidly than in an acrylic bath. This effect should be so small that it should not detract from the user experience. Acrylic: Acrylic baths retain heat better than steel baths and will be warmer to the touch.

Comfa Bath The Comfa is from the Slimm range of baths which are manufactured from a combination of liquid acrylic resin reinforced with fibre glass and volcanic ash for maximum strengh. The Comfa is a traditional Slipper shape bath. ÂŁ2220, www.bcdesigns.co.uk


Stability

CORNER BATHS

Steel: Steel baths give the impression of being more stable when fitted, as the material is obviously less flexible to start with.

When it comes to smaller bathrooms, it might be tempting to cut out luxury, as, often, the more luxurious and deluxe a product is, the more space it requires. Corner baths differ in this area, as they take up that awkward corner space in your bathroom and are often luxurious without being especially large. Corner baths are even available as Whirlpool baths, with a series of jets as well as head rests. Corner baths are installed to look snug and compact, but are also a roomy option for a lounging, relaxing soak.

Acrylic: Acrylic baths have suffered in the past from a poor reputation due the supply of inferior quality products. However they still have the lion's share of the market in the UK and when supplied by a reputable retailer and installed correctly they should prove sturdy and trouble free.

Aveo by Villeroy & Boch, with a distinctive egg shaped design, designed to perfectly match the Aveo suite. On display and available locally from Island Bathrooms. www.islandbathrooms.co.uk

SPACE SAVING BATH Space is one of the rarest commodities when designing a new bathroom. But that doesn’t mean you should compromise your design for lack of space. There are plenty of space saving baths that suit smaller bathrooms and smaller budgets. When designing a bathroom, it is important to use all available space in order to get an accomplished, finished result. Using corners in your bathroom is a clever way to make your bathroom appear bigger.

Nahho With Nahho, Duravit introduces a new form of bathing culture – floating. Nahho is the name of the original canoe, the dugout canoe, and floating is that wonderful feeling of weightlessness and complete relaxation in water. The most important prerequisite for this is being able to stretch out in full and the optional, height-adjustable “bushman” neck rest, designed according to a classic Ethiopian model, further enhances the feeling of relaxation. The visual effect is also designed for relaxation: all technical elements such as tap fittings, waterfall tap or the optional indirect lighting are concealed under a furniture flap in a white or matt graphite finish. Additional extras include a Durapearl system and a sound module. www.kitchenhaven.co.uk


The Shower or Compact Bath If a corner bath just isn’t for you, think about a shower or compact bath. Compact baths are available in sizes starting from 1200mm in length, so there’s no problem when it’s just a bath you want and have no room to fit it. With a compact bath, albeit small, they are ideal when space is a premium and a bath, a must. This design is ingenious in itself, offering a standard bath available in a number of lengths and widths, but adapted so that one end is larger, giving more space to the shower. It takes the shape of a ‘P’ and kills two birds with one stone when there’s just not enough room for a separate shower and bath.

Esplanade The New Opulence As an architect, he is internationally successful. He designed the Federation Tower in Moscow, the highest skyscraper in Europe and also the AquaDom in Berlin, the largest free-standing aquarium in the world. Sergei Tchoban has now designed a bathroom range for Duravit: Esplanade – luxurious, spacious and visually impressive. Tchoban deliberately plays with the splendour of times gone by paired with a touch of irony. So it is no coincidence that the floorstanding toilet resembles an ancient chair, the washbasin a chest of drawers and the bathtub a chaise longue. The Esplanade furniture is available in two completely different styles. Either in exquisite silk or comfortable oak wood panelling, blending the bathroom beautifully with the living area. www.kitchenhaven.co.uk

The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning at Elizabeth Anne Kitchens

The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan Cancer Support’s biggest fundraising event. They ask people across the UK - and sometimes further afield - to hold a coffee morning, where donations on the day are made to Macmillan. Last year 43,000 people signed up to hold a coffee morning, raising over £8 million. This Year Elizabeth Ann Kitchens in Poole High Street and in Bournemouth took part to raise even more money to help change the lives of people affected by cancer. David Squire has been Pooles town crier for 53 years and 27 days and will soon be hitting the record books for being the longest crying town crier. He must have very puffy eyes!

5 minutes with... Quentin Griffiths Having been responsible for launching the web’s fasted growing retailer, ASOS, several years ago, local man and Bournemouth University graduate Quentin Griffiths has recently launched ACHICA.com. ACHICA is a membersonly website that holds 48-hour sales of sought-after goods, such as Missoni and Yves Delorme bed linen, or Anglepoise lamps, which it offers for discounts of up to 70%. The ACHICA way, is a well-established model in fashion, where brands use the sites to offload slowselling stock, but ACHICA is the first to offer home wares in such a way.

72

The ASOS we find online today is very different to it’s presence on launch, what drove the change and how did it come about? Simply listening to what our customer’s wanted and responding to what they were buying. ASOS (AsSeenOnScreen) was originally set up to sell a variety of products seen in film and TV shows. The proposition shifted to selling predominantly fashion and beauty as the customers were wanting to get as close to the stars and celebrities as possible, ie getting their look. In order to continue scaling it has evolved again into mainstream fashion with less of an emphasis on celebrities. You’re most noted for launching ASOS, but what other businesses have you been involved with? ACHICA.com is the first business I’ve co-founded and I’m involved with on a day-to-day executive basis since ASOS. I invested in 4 other online retailers between 2005 – 2009 taking up non-executive positions. I’ve sold my interest in 2 and the other 2 failed. How did you meet your current business partner? I set ACHICA up with Will Cooper (ex-CEO of a digital marketing agency) in 2009, who I met through ASOS back in 2001. ACHICA is a fairly unique proposal, can you give us the elevator pitch? Whenever I consider a start-up it must tick a few boxes, or success criteria, that are important in my view. One of these is a USP or strong point of difference. The private sale business model had worked well in fashion but noone in the UK had applied the model to Home & Garden categories. Members of ACHICA can benefit from up to 70% off retail prices on household brands all year round. ASOS was (and still is) hugely successful, was it difficult going back to ‘start-up mode’? No, the start-up phase is the most rewarding to me and what I enjoy most. Setting up something from scratch, establishing the business on a secure foundation and watching it grow into a profitable enterprise is a fantastic experience, for the whole team not only the founders. ACHICA deals in homeware items, does that require a different approach to the fashion retail you’ve been used to? Not generally but logistics is more varied and complex. Launching an online brand takes much more than setting the website live and waiting for customers to find you, how did you approach the launch activity and marketing for ACHICA? We determined our key selling propositions, up to 70% off RRP, Free to Join, For 48-72 hours only, Members-Only. Next we identified the marketing channels to focus on, PR, Print, Online, TV. Then is down to implementing the marketing plan with the team. What kind of items can users find on ACHICA?

Everything for the Home & Garden – Furniture & Lighting, Bed & Bath, Kitchen & Dining, Art, Food & Drink, Garden Furniture and accessories. Even some fashion accessories and childrenswear. The best way to find out is to sign up to ACHICA which takes about 20 seconds! What does the future hold for ACHICA? Improved offer and customer experience. Very strong year on year sales growth. We will also look to expand abroad at some point next year, once we are profitable in UK. What’s been your worst moment in business? Spreading myself too thin by taking on too much And your proudest? Reaching profitability at ASOS and realising we’d built a viable and scalable business. Soon to be repeated at ACHICA. You have a home locally, is it a full-time home, or a holiday crash-pad? I spend Monday to Friday in London and have an apartment close to the office in Mayfair. At the weekends I’m back at my home in central Bournemouth with the family. Dragon’s Den has it’s share of lovers and haters, you must have been on both sides of the table in your career, what tip would you share for entrepreneurs looking for investment? Assuming you have absolute belief in your proposition, never give up. You recently got involved with the Princes Trust, how did that come about and what will you be doing? I’ve reached the stage in my career where I have achieved everything materially I set out to achieve as graduate. I’m now looking to help other achieve their potential too, particularly those who show promise but may lack the opportunity to achieve their dreams and aspirations . The introduction to the Princes Trust came about via a mutual friend and the timing was right so I’ve become a donor and expect to be able contribute time as well as money at some point in 2012.

The Wave 105 presenter talks about the upcoming Winter months

It is that time of year again, where the flip flops are banished to under the bed and winter shoes and socks start to make an appearance on the feet of the nation. I always know when winter is really here when the people in the office switch from cereal for breakfast to hearty porridge and a sandwich for lunch to warming soup. I walk into the building for my evening show and a cocktail of different soup smells lingers from the day. The Distinction Another key event which marks to start of winter in the UK was London Fashion week last month. I was intrigued to have acclaimed British fashion designer, Wayne Hemingway on my show recently and was interested to hear about his take on the current fashion industry and how he is trying to make ‘green the new black’ this winter season. It amazed me to discover that in a day and age where recycling is so prevalent in many households; the majority of fashion designers and houses have little or no eco-responsibility. Wayne, the design legend who champions eco-chic, enjoys making sustainable living a way of life for himself and his family and is showing his support for this important environmental cause, by encouraging recycling via a new exciting project. Wayne’s home features recycled classics; old boats redesigned into sofas, disused telegraph poles turned into a tepee, and - at the bottom of the garden - an upside-down boat which somehow doubles as a seesaw and a storage shed. To inspire us all to think more carefully about recycling, Wayne has collaborated with iconic drinks brand Coca-Cola to design a unique umbrella with a twist – its fabric is made entirely out of recycled plastic bottles. Fontana HE After the interview, I started thinking of just how farThe people will go when it comes to ‘green fashion’ statements…a Lady Gaga-esque meat dress, 8 made out of the off cuts from the local butcher, dresses made from compost, tops woven out of left-over vegetables? I think the smell would be pretty horrific and would out-do the soup smell menagerie in the office! So I think Wayne is doing a great job, bringing recycling and an ecoconscious to the fashion world without the stench of rotting food-stuffs, I look forward to seeing more to come.

Solar - where performance pays dividends

DORSET SOLAR TALK TO HOUSE ABOUT WHY THEY ARE MORE THAN YOUR AVERAGE SOLAR ENERGY COMPANY

IF you can get something for nothing, that has to be the best solution of all.” It’s what first attracted Andrew Bowley, director of Dorset Solar, to the solar industry, and what makes him so passionate about getting value for money for his clients. Andrew, the inventor of the Savastat range of load compensation controls has been in the energy efficiency business for 20 years, the last four in solar, “I’ve always been fascinated by solar, because it’s free energy,” he explained.

survey and project manage every site. Each and every project is tailor made, even down to the materials used – Andrew ensures no home close to the coast is fitted with galvanised steel, as it would erode in the salty air. Future repairs would be costly so it’s wise to ensure a quality installation from day one.

“The sunlight that falls on the earth every single day provides enough energy to power the whole world for a year”

Efficiency is certainly the name of the game when it comes to solar panels.

Dorset Solar has a truly unique approach to designing solar systems, using a militaryapproved, laser aided computer system to ensure optimum accuracy when measuring roofs prior to installation. It gives clients an accurate picture of how the finished work will look. I’m not aware of any other company that uses such accurate assessment tools. “With the measuring system we put all the dimensions in, nothing is left to chance, it’s absolute precision”. The same attention to detail sees a master builder – one of the company’s partners –

In-house design experts at Dorset Solar rigorously evaluate every system through their bespoke computer simulation software to ensure the very highest energy generation. Many companies miss this vital design computation and rely on kit systems or their suppliers to do their design work, which will inevitably fall short in efficiency – ‘one size doesn’t fit all’…You get what you pay for – this is a 25year investment so make sure you’re comparing ‘apples with apples’ when deciding on which system to choose.

“Failure is not an option, we want to deliver safe & efficient systems.”

Design pays dividends

Sanyo Preferred Installers Dorset Solar unlike most companies will provide a number of quotes based on a selection of panels and inverters including the unique, patent protected Sanyo HiT panels, which were specifically designed for the northern European climate. This specialist panel outperforms all other solar panels by a significant margin. “I would like people to see Dorset Solar as a safe pair of hands employing ‘best in breed’ technologies.” Dorset Solar is a consultancy practice and carries out design work across the country and is accredited under the MCS system.

2. Magma Bioethanol Fire A fire not only provides a source of warmth but it can also enhance the ambience of a room as well as being a design statement in it’s own right. This design most certainly conforms to the latter. A unique free standing design that sits where a coffee table usually wood, this fire come coffee table is certainly unique and we think it won’t be long before we see plenty of these within Dorset homes. £399, www.livingitup.co.uk

3. Bugatti Bugatti - Always dreamt of owning your own Bugatti? Just in at The Conran Shop are hand built replicas of the 1930’s Bugatti type 52 toy racer. Only 499 originals were ever built at the Molsheim factory between 1927 and 1936 and the cars were used as playthings as well as serious racing among the children of the European elite. The first example of a Type 52 was built for Ettore Bugatti’s son, five year old Roland.  The Conran Shop replicas are limited edition and highly sought after with handshaped aluminum coachwork, rich leather seats and a working steering wheel. Each car comes with a serial number and certificate of production. The most luxurious gift you could buy for your son or daughter or, the ultimate gift for a big kid.

Renewable Energy Showroom Opening in Poole One of the largest renewable energy providers in the South, Save Energy Group, is providing an opportunity to get up close and personal with the products that are enabling today’s astute businesses and consumers to take control of rising energy costs, by harvesting what comes naturally – daylight. Each product category in the Save Energy portfolio is catered for, including Solar PV for harvesting your free electricity, Solar Thermal for hot water, and Air and Ground Source Heat Pumps for space heating and hot water. Most of us have heard of at least one of these products, but where do you go for those unanswered questions?

What do they mean for the future of our energy supply? What is best solution for our home or business? What is involved in the installation? How will it impact on the building? How do we find out more about the governments Feed in Tariff? How long before we see a return on our investment? These are all questions, and more, that can be answered by visiting the experts at the Save Energy showroom. It will provide an opportunity to break down the different categories, their benefits and enable customers to visualise each product in their own surroundings. The showroom will also be fully interactive, with explanatory videos, footage by the manufacturers themselves, and a live feed to properties that are already benefiting from solar energy to enable visitors to see for themselves how much energy is being generated. Sales and Marketing Director, Steve Randall: “We started in the renewable energy business in 2002, so we have been talking about the benefits for almost a decade. Although we have always encouraged customers to come along and see the infrastructure of the business behind their investment and to see the products for themselves – what was missing was an opportunity to see them in situ. To see how they are fitted and to make it easier to understand the process from the first initial contact with us, through to site survey/installation, as well as our customer service that goes far beyond our engineers closing the van doors and leaving site at the end of the day. The showroom brings our customers renewable energy investment to life, and we are delighted to have our opening dates:

22nd & 23rd October | 10.00am to 4.00pm Take advantage of our opening offer on both days: We pay your VAT Commercial Director, Mike Davies: “We intend to make full use of the Showroom as an educational platform from which to explain the benefits of renewable energy. Our Commercial Division is working hard to help small-to-medium sized businesses, as well as large organisations understand how they can future proof their businesses against rising energy costs. Increasingly, we are working with the farming community across the south, as well as churches, care homes, leisure clubs, educational premises, offices and nurseries. We encourage anyone who wants to know how to invest in something that will actually offer a return, to visit our showroom. Before you visit, check us out on www.checkatrade.com to find out what our customers say about Save Energy Group.“

frank skinner on...

Seasoned comic turned to columnist Frank Skinner talks about what he thinks of libraries, religion and Amy Winehouse, as his collected writings for The Times are published in Dispatches From The Sofa. ...The hacking scandal "It's like the Berlin Wall coming down or the fall of Soviet Russia. On one level, I can't think of a news story that's given me more pleasure. It's the moment when someone takes on the school bully."People were too afraid of the Murdoch empire because 'orrible things would be written about them."Murdoch must now have a long list of, 'If I ever get back on top, he'll get it'. Ed Miliband will be blown out of the water."My only profound sadness is there's no evidence I was hacked. I take this as a personal insult. I'm not even hack-worthy." ...Libraries turning into computer clubs "My first instinct on closing them was that this was terrible. It's stopping people learning who can't afford to buy books."Then I thought, 'Aren't libraries alienating, quite smelly places, filled with strange people who I don't want to hang around with?' Just to check, I went to a local library and found it's all clean, smart and lovely, but it's still not what I want it to be."There weren't many books. And in a romantic way, I don't want libraries to be computer clubs. I want to see people sitting and reading Aeschylus."My point is, when the people march to defend libraries, most of them won't know what they're defending." ...Conversing with kids "I spent a long period being quite frightened of other people's children. I didn't speak the language. But I made a really big effort with David Baddiel's kids because his girlfriend said to me, 'Frank, you should talk to the kids as well as us when you come round'."I ended up at Dave's old country home in Kent, in their hot tub, with his sixyear-old daughter. And for an hour I barely spoke while she told me about school and a holiday they'd been on. It was just her little head talking and talking and talking. It was absolutely blissful. And I got over the fear."That said, I do think some people have children because they've run out of things to say. I was in a chip restaurant the other day and sitting on the table next to me was a child, with their parents and grandmother. They sat the child at one end, while they huddled at the other, like they were watching the television. Every bit of conversation went through the kid."I think they were happier with that level of conversation." ...Politicians' sales puff "There should be more brilliance in Parliament and when I say more... I mean more than none."Prime Minister's Questions is a road-rage level of debate. You never come away thinking, 'Oh, I've never thought that before'. They're like post-match interviews on Match Of The Day. Nothing's ever said other than the obvious."But then, I'm never impressed by politicians when I meet them. They just seem like guys from the sales department. I want it to be how I imagine Ancient Greece; big thinkers at the top, not corporate ordinaries. Where are the special people?"There are only two political speeches I can remember ever moving me, the main one being Robin Cook's 'Why we shouldn't go into Iraq'."It shouldn't be that a 54-year-old man can only remember two speeches in Parliament."

...Alcoholic musicians "I wasn't one of the people saying, 'Where were Amy Winehouse's friends?' because I know from my own drinking years that nobody can be told they need to quit. Unless she woke up and thought she'd had enough, it was never going to happen."I did think she might be one of those Shane MacGowan, Keith Richards-types, who keep going forever, though. Some people have that iron constitution."Shane McGowan's been drunk for 25 years. I've met him. He was drunk, but he was also articulate, interesting, funny and heart-warming. And then he went away and drank a bottle of Cinzano and a bottle of vodka ....The day Kate Middleton's smile foiled the cynics "I'm a bit worried about myself. I watched Kate In Canada: The Documentary the other day and I've completely bought into the whole 'she's just an ordinary girl' thing."During the wedding, there was a cynicism amnesty. Like when you go and hand your knives in. And Kate's smile seemed to be the iconic representation of a world without cynicism."She was the picture of undiluted happiness. Normally, we think if you're really bright, you can't be that happy. It's associated with a level of stupidity. But just for one day, it was OK."I think you can be too arch and knowing sometimes. I rebooted. But I also thought the Royal family missed an opportunity. They should have had her driving the car into the modern world. What a statement!"There wouldn't have been much manoeuvring as The Mall is a straight road. Direction-wise she could just have followed the tea towels..."

five minutes with... chris hollins TV's Chris Hollins comes to the Christchurch Harbour Hotel this week for an inspirational talk over lunch, we caught with the dancing newareader for a quick chat of our own... You’re coming to the Christchurch Harbour Hotel on 28th October, are you a newcomer to the area? If not, what are your favourite parts of Dorset? I have to say i haven't spent much time in Dorset. I've been to Bournemouth a few times. Some  I think my parents had their honeymoon there!    You were the winner of Strictly Come Dancing in 2009, consistently winning the public vote throughout, did the show change your life in any way? Not really. I'm still getting up at 4 in the morning! What is different is the fact that a few more people know me. Strictly is so big. It's watched by people of all ages. I now have little boys and girls coming up to me asking for autographs. People shouting " oh look it's the dancer" is very weird but I love it.   Do you still dance? Not really.  Performing in front of 10 million people on a Saturday is a great motivating force! plus dancing with one of the best dancers also helps. I still speak to Ola and James but they don't call me to dance at a show.it's more likely for a drink or a game of golf.    Your career has diversified in that in addition to your BBC sports presenting you have also become co-presenter of Watchdog, how do the two roles differ and do you have a preference? In so many ways the job is the same: presenting live on television, reacting to new infromation and recovering from mistakes! But it's completely different in others. making consumer affairs interesting and digestible is tough and the team do an incredible job. I love doing both jobs.

What is Anne Robinson like to work with? Believe it or not she's great fun. She has a wicked sense of humour and along with mat we have a great giggle on the show. I have to say working on the programme has been the best thing to happen to me, career wise for a long time.   You became a patron for children’s cancer charity CLIC Sargent in 2008, what was your reason for doing so and what was the extent of your involvement? I have been involved with Clic and then Clic Sargent for about 7 years. Cancer is a horrible disease that affectes almost everyone. We get scared, confused and frustrated. Our lives come to a standstill.  Well imagine if that happened to your child. How do you explain what's going on to a 5 year old. how do you take time off work?  How do you   find accomodation near the hospital? Well Clic Sargent  tries to find all the answers. I have been to the hospitals and met all the families and witnessed the incredible work the nurses do. It takes your breath away.   What does the future hold for you now? Well sadly when BBC Breakfast goes to Salford I will be leaving the programme after 7 years. It's goinmg to be tough but it's time to move on. I hope to play a role for BBC at the London Olympics and to continue to work on a variety of shows at the BBC. Fingers crossed! How would you describe HOUSE magazine in one word? inspiring Meet the man himself, as Chris Hollins will be hosting a fabulous celebrity luncheon at the Christchurch Harbour Hotel on Friday 28 October. For just £32.50 get up-close and personal with the Strictly star, as he mingles with guests over a welcome drink, before sitting down for a three-course lunch, followed by a 40 minute talk from Chris.

Strictly fabulous, darling

As the feathers and foxtrots of Strictly Come Dancing roll into town on BBC One, flamboyant judge Bruno Tonioli talks about why this series is set to be more fabulous than ever, & why he's so pleased he decided not to be a bank manager.

118

If Bruno Tonioli were to describe himself in the same way he rates the celebrities on Strictly Come Dancing, he would probably say he's a 'simmering ball of energy, bursting with Latin fire and brimming with promise'. The Italian dancer, who looks remarkably young for his 55 years, is as flamboyant as they come. "It's my Latin Italian nature darling," he purrs down the phone, pronouncing 'darling' as if it had several thousand 'r's. "When I talk, my hands go everywhere, it's a way of communicating. My energy builds up so much, it's how I express myself." Tonioli is bracing himself for the ninth series of the dance competition, hosted by Tess Daly and the newly knighted Bruce Forsyth, which sees stars of varying backgrounds and abilities compete with professional partners for the coveted Glitterball Trophy. "It will be too fabulous," he exclaims. "It's going to be the golden season. Last year was the best we ever had. But we're really keen to build on that achievement and make it even more exciting and more glamorous and more sexy, and finally there'll be Sir Bruce - we'll be almost royal!" Last year former EastEnders actress Kara Tointon clinched victory over Countryfile presenter Matt Baker and therapist Pamela Stephenson in a series which was partly dominated by the comedy performances of former MP Ann Widdecombe and her professional partner Anton Du Beke. With a new line-up including Lulu, Nancy Dell'Olio and Jason Donovan, this year is bound to be as exciting as the last, and Tonioli is looking forward to the comedy acts just as much as the competitive ones. "I don't think the comedy contestants undermine the competition at all. The point of it is that the show should be open to everyone. Some people that you think would be brilliant are not, and people you think are going to be terrible are brilliant. I think the charm is having a great variety of characters and seeing what happens once we've put them all together," he says. And although discussions among judges Alisha Dixon, Len Goodman and Craig Revel Horwood


Extra Time Who's dancing with who? can get heated, Tonioli is proud that cross words don't spill out of the studio. "We all get on very well you know," he says. "We say what we want to say on television, we have our own opinions, we get fired up, but once the show is over, it's over. There isn't any backstabbing or bitchiness." One thing they had to contend with was the backlash against Dixon, who in 2008 was brought in to replace former judge Arlene Phillips in what was perceived as an ageist decision. Singer Dixon was recruited to the panel on the strength of her having won the show in 2007 so, as a former contestant, she knows what it's like to learn all the dances from scratch. But her judging style was slated by critics when she first started. "It was unfair," says Tonioli. "She won the show, what more do you want? She has an insight. But once you're in the public eye you will take flack - it's part of the profession." Tonioli is similarly stoical about his autumn/ winter work regime, which sees him judge both Strictly Come Dancing in the UK, and Dancing With The Stars in the US. Asked how often he has to make that transatlantic flight, he replies in a matter-of-fact way: "Every week." He puts his youthful energy down to the

much-lauded Mediterranean diet and his fierce dedication to the gym. "I could spend hours talking about staying in shape! I train, I go to the gym at least five times a week for an hour and a half, if I can, I eat very well, I cook. There are no secrets - if you're fat, it's because you're eating too much of the wrong thing." Tonioli was born in a small town in northern Italy called Ferrara, where he says he was "the only gay in the village". His pursuit of a career in dancing brought him to England where he found work in music videos and toured with artists including Elton John and Tina Turner. Although he spends a lot of time in Los Angeles, he still considers the UK his home: "I love it here. In spite of the weather, I always come back. My career and all the opportunities I've had originated in London, it's my home," he says, with a passion only Italians can get away with. Maybe he's grateful because if he hadn't moved to England, he may have ended up in Italy, working as a bank manager. "My parents wanted me to go into banking. Can you imagine? We would have been bankrupt. 'How much do you want? Take it all, I'll give it to you'," he says, chuckling. "I really can't imagine it. My first job was as a dancer and I got to dance. I've never looked back."

Six of the best sleep assistants

The frustration that can occur when you want to nod off but simply cannot is beyond compare. The harder you try, the further away from snoozeville you seem to get. If you're having trouble nodding off, and counting sheep and lullabies aren't quite having

the desired effect, let us show you a pick of six gadgets designed to help you doze off, achieve a deeper sleep and have yourself in peak condition when the alarm bell rings.

Sleep Machine

Silence Please

Sound Asleep

i-relax All Senses

Stop Snoring Advance

SleepPhones

This unique machine creates the ideal environment for nodding off as it relaxes the senses using three holistic therapy methods Aroma therapy, which releases a soft scent; Light therapy, which allows you to select the right glow to match your mood; and Sound therapy, which offers five peaceful nature tracks. Resistance is futile!

Worn on the wrist, when this device detects three or more consecutive snores, it'll send a weak electrical impulse to the person wearing it. Although your companion may still claim that they never snore, these electrical impulses will not wake them, are pain free and offer partners across the land immediate results - we can hear the cheers!

It's great to fall asleep listening to soothing tunes, but conventional earbuds or headsets are likely to be uncomfortable to sleep with. These SleepPhones have a soft fleece band with thin, removable speakers. It's delivered with a CD containing three sleep tracks - night, night.

£99.99 from uk.oregonscientific.com

£24.99 from www.lloydspharmacy.com

App Nap

Kids' Stuff

Wakey, Wakey

Deep Sleep CD

Ewan the Dream Sheep

Lumie Bodyclock Starter 30

Created by renowned therapist Andrew Johnson, the Deep Sleep CD (also available as an app) lasts for 30 minutes and has an impressive 95% success rate in sending folks to sleep. Using a combination of relaxation techniques, it'll assist in drifting you into a deep, natural and restful sleep.

We've all tried counting them, now here's a soft toy version to snuggle with to help little nippers nod off. Ewan emits soothing sounds at low base frequency, and this, together with the soft glow, will help toddlers drift off. The heartbeat sounds are actual recordings, and you can select from four different calming sound tracks.

Just as important as the drifting off, is the way you wake up. This clever clock simulates the rising of the sun (and sunset too), so your senses can adjust at a gentle speed. It also helps regulate your internal body clock, leading to a more relaxed all-round feeling - rather good, we say.

Will Croker Nice to see you summer, now leave us alone! Knights Director and regular columnist Will Croker, relays his thoughts on the autumn market The Indian summer has been and gone. The town’s tourism industry received a healthy late shot in the arm, as nearly a million people visited the area last weekend. Summer wardrobes were cracked open once again and pasty skin was lavished with sun tan lotion for one last peel. Blossom was seen on trees as the natural world got incredibly confused and lifeguards were recalled to work to prevent sun revellers coming to a salty end. I enjoyed it. I like having on shorts and a t-shirt. I liked looking at feet without socks (although the elastic mark that the socks left around my leg was not my best look!). However, as an estate agent I hated it. August is the month that most of us will accept faltering slightly. This is because of outside influences, such as weather, school and family holidays and parents desperately trying to avoid viewing or showing a house with the little darlings around. I won’t however allow October to falter in the same way. Yet try as we might, we almost had to accept defeat, as we couldn’t motivate the vast majority of customers to come and look at our houses. I suppose I understand it, but I don’t have to like it! The one blessing is that those people who did venture out to find their next home were deadly serious. And the offer to viewing ratio was significantly up. This resulted in some sales activity. In truth, whilst it was lovely to have had some sun since April, it couldn’t have come at a worst time for the housing market. August was its usual self, but the more buoyant September market was slow to get going and no sooner had we seen an increase in activity, then the whole thing comes to a grinding halt, as for a week we celebrated the renaissance of summer. This means that we have to get the bolder moving again and this is always the toughest part. There is some light at the end of the tunnel as mortgages are slowly being made available again to those with a 10% deposit and the buyers we have are very keen, its just the stuttering nature of the economy that is so frustrating. Still one piece of good news was that the sun kept the Euro off the front pages for a week, so every very small cloud hey……….?

HEALTH & FITNESS Mood Swing Sufferer? If each month you regularly fly off the handle at your partner or children for no apparent reason, feel anxious and panicky at work despite normally being measured and in control, or have inexplicable bouts of low mood, you could be suffering from premenstrual syndrome (PMS). Other symptoms can include irritability, mood swings, headaches, food cravings, anxiety and depression, through to uncharacteristic outbursts of anger or tearfulness. PMS is thought to be caused by changes in levels of the hormone progesterone in the body, due to menstruation, but it is not known why some women suffer more than others. "All too often PMS is treated as a bit of a joke, and dismissed as a minor monthly problem," says Jackie Howe, chief executive officer of NAPS, an organisation which has been informing, advising and supporting sufferers for 28 years and is campaigning for a nationwide network of specialists. "Experiencing the same distressing symptoms month after month for years on end can be totally debilitating and some women suffer depression and even feel suicidal," she says.

How to get diagnosed If you go to a GP, he will examine you to check that there are no problems associated with the womb or ovaries. He may also take blood tests to measure hormone levels. If a GP feels you have premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), a more severe form of PMS which occurs in a small percentage of women, he may refer you to a specialist. "Keep a menstrual diary for at least two months," advises Jackie Howe at NAPS. "That diary can help you identify any pattern in the key symptoms, both behavioural and physical, and when they occur. It can be shown to a doctor if you decide to seek medical advice."

What treatments are available? There's no specific medication, and it can be a case of trial and error to find what works for an individual. Common medications include: Mefenamic acid, an anti-inflammatory drug which reduces the swelling of the womb that causes a lot of the pain of PMS; combined oral contraceptive pill, this can control the hormone fluctua-

tions that can exacerbate PMS; anti-inflammatory painkillers such as ibuprofen, which can relieve pain from inflammation associated with PMS; estrogen patches and gels to address hormone fluctuations, and injections can be given to stop the cycle; and diuretics, which if taken for the week before each period can help alleviate water retention. Mild tranquillisers may reduce symptoms of anxiety and anti-depressants may be indicated in cases of PMDD, which can cause severe depression, while bromocriptine, a hormone-inhibiting drug, may be prescribed if breast tenderness is a major symptom. (Excess amounts of the hormones oestrogen and progesterone can cause breasts to swell.)

Can diet help? Improving diet is considered by many nutritionists to be helpful. In general, they advise a diet rich in fibre, protein and essential fats, and to reduce intake of sugar, salt, caffeine and alcohol. "Including broccoli, cauliflower, kale and cabbage in the diet can to help balance hormones naturally," says Hazel Courteney, author of 500 Of The Most Important Health Tips You'll Ever Need (published by Cico Books, priced ÂŁ12.99). She also advises switching from sodiumbased salt to magnesium-based sea salt to help minimise fluid retention and breast tenderness. "Generally, cut down on animal fats, burgers, sausages and rich meat-based meals which contain high levels of saturated fat and salt," advises Courteney. "Breakfast on an oat-based cereal, fruit and protein, such as eggs, to help balance blood sugars. It's also helpful to include small amounts of quality protein with each meal, such as fresh fish, eggs, chicken, turkey and cottage cheese." She also suggests including lentils, dried beans and pulses, sunflower and pumpkin seeds to the diet.

Stay active "Women who lead sedentary lifestyles tend to report more severe PMS symptoms than women who exercise regularly, so keep get moving," says Shona Wilkinson, head nutritionist at The Nutri Centre. "Being more active by swimming, running or just walking more, can all help. Exercise is thought to help keep hormone levels constant as

well as encouraging the brain to produce more of the feel-good chemical serotonin and boost endorphins, which can work to alleviate the emotional symptoms of PMS."

Cut the caffeine "Diet can affect how your body deals with the symptoms you may have accompanying your period," points out Shona Wilkinson, of The Nutri Centre. "For example, caffeine elevates oestrogen levels, which may increase the symptoms of PMS, so avoid drinking too much tea, coffee and caffeinated energy or fizzy drinks."

Reduce saturated fat "Period pains can be triggered by substances called prostaglandins. While many of these are healthy, some increase your body's sensitivity to pain," explains Dr Marilyn Glenville, a nutritional physician who specialises in women's health. "They can cause muscles to spasm and are termed 'bad' prostaglandins. Saturated fats, found mainly in dairy and animal products, encourage the body to produce bad prostaglandins."

Back to Basics Staying trim neednâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be a radical overhaul of your life, but instead a few simple changes to your lifestyle. Don't miss breakfast It really is the most important meal of the day. Apart from anything else, if you eat breakfast, you'll be less hungry before lunch, meaning you'll be less likely to snack. Have a big bowl soup for lunch After a low-calorie but filling lunch, you'll feel less hungry during the afternoon and won't be tempted by sugary treats. Slow snacking Allow yourself a snack - but eat it slowly. The likelihood is you're not that hungry at all, but are looking for a burst of energy or a sugar rush. If you eat snacks quickly you'll want another one as soon as you've finished the first. So, the more you practise eating slowly, the less you'll be craving. Get brushing If you do have a fattening treat, such as chocolate, brush your teeth afterwards. It'll stop you from wanting more... and more! Slow down Eating slowly tricks the stomach into thinking it has had more food than it actually has, because it takes longer to finish the meal. Train yourself to eat more slowly. It really does work! Serve up When dishing up your food, arrange it on small plates. Not only will it look more attractive, but it will encourage you to eat less. Remember, quality over quantity! Small changes Cut down on fat, carbohydrates and sugar, but don't cut them out entirely. Try taking the crust off your toast in the morning, cutting the fat


off your bacon or having one and a half sugars in your tea rather than two. Little changes will make a big difference. Reduce the booze Alcohol is very fattening, so drink small bottles of beer instead of large ones and use small wine glasses for that evening tipple. Don't forget: always sip your drinks slowly. It makes them more enjoyable. Make more When making a meal with fresh vegetables, such as carrots, cauliflower and peppers, prepare more of them than you're going to eat. Put the extras in a bowl in the fridge so you have fresh, healthy snacks whenever you feel peckish. Get saucy If you buy takeaway food, order the main dishes without sauce and vegetable dishes with sauce as these tend to be less fattening. This way, you get a healthier sauce with the meal. Drink up Drink water with every meal, even if it's an accompaniment to another drink. It helps you fill up more quickly. Water's also very good for your health and practically free. Caffeine fix Drinking coffee or tea during the day helps control hunger in much the same way as drinking water. But don't over do it! If you like to drink a lot of coffee, try switching from milk-drenched drinks, like lattes or cappuccinos, to Americanos. They're less fattening, yet just as satisfying. Perfect with pasta If you're cooking pasta - like Spaghetti Bolognese - always give yourself lots of sauce and less pasta than you would usually have. This way you can still enjoy the food and fill up on the less fattening aspect of the meal. Also, swap parmesan for salt and pepper.

Dilute your drinks Fruit juice is packed with calories and sugar. So, if you drink a lot of it, dilute it 50/50 with water. Not only will it last longer, you'll also consume fewer calories. Grab a bag Treat yourself to a bag of grapes. They're sweet, easy to pop in the mouth and often crunchy - the perfect snack, in other words. Mix it up If you can't give up sugary cereals, mix them with healthier alternatives like fruit or yoghurt. Be experimental and find a way to eat less of them. Buck the fizz Try to drop sugary drinks from your diet (at least in the short-term) and if you have to drink them, go for the diet option instead. The healthy choice A healthy diet should consist of plenty of fruit and vegetables, starchy foods such as rice, bread, pasta (try to choose wholegrain varieties when you can) and potatoes, protein-rich foods such as meat, fish, eggs and pulses, some milk and dairy foods, as well as small amounts of foods high in fat, salt and sugar. Step it up It's really not hard to be a little more active on a daily basis. And it will really burn those calories. Think about how you can be more active without disrupting your daily routine. It can be as simple as carrying baskets around the supermarket instead of pushing a trolley. Get cooking Making a meal from scratch reminds you just what you're eating. So buy a cookbook and begin avoiding pre-packaged food. Your tastebuds will soon start craving personalised lunchtime sandwiches and fresh suppers, above bland, saltheavy supermarket versions.

Kate Hudson Kate Hudson's perfectly-formed peachy bottom is back after giving birth to her second child earlier this year. But just how did she achieve such cheeky perfection? A smart eating plan that includes a lot of sushi, and organic food wherever possible. Kate was given a hard time over piling on pregnancy pounds. 'The tabloids were tough on me, but I ate well and exercised. The weight just came off. Now I have no issues with my body. I don't have time in life to worry about it.'

Crown Jewels Black aficionados, please don't cry, but kaleidoscopic shades have ousted winter's favourite shade. Give colour the green light (or indeed red, blue, yellow or purple) as this season has far more to offer than the usual black, grey and navy. Autumn's jewel collection is much more muted and richer than summer's shock-bright neons. Opt for uber-luxe shades of sumptuous sapphire, deep ruby and dazzling amethyst instead. How you flash your favourite gem tone is up to you. Try top-to-toe in one hue for maximum impact or go for colour blocking, clashing opposing colours together for a fashionforward look that's sure to brighten your day.

Cosying up to autumn trends From bold colour to retro style, make a statement with this season's top trends. Lisa Haynes reveals the hottest runway looks to follow.

The heating button isn't the only thing you should be getting acquainted with around about now. Autumn/winter's new trends are ready and waiting for your big wardrobe switchover. And, chosen wisely, they're all you need to feel fashionably warm and fuzzy. Varying wildly from bright jewel shades to fetish black, feminine Forties to boyish androgyny, the biggest decision is which direction to go. But there's no need to foot the bill for a Forties-inspired Miu Miu dress or Yves Saint Laurent heritage blanket coat, because the high street has got it sussed when it comes to this season's big looks. Give the catwalks a run-way for their money with your top trend.

Eye-Popping Prints Without the sunshine to dazzle us, statement prints are a fitting replacement. Emblazoned on shirts, dresses and trousers, this season's bold patterns are the clothing equivalent of an art gallery with their elaborate designs. Plump for pop art by going dotty for spots. From monochrome and colour to polka dot and oversized, circles are winter's big replacement for summer's nautical stripes. The fashion world is also seeing stars for astrology-inspired prints, but unlike the real things, these can sparkle on both day or nighttime wear. For a more opulent and intricate print, the catwalk world took inspiration from Faberge eggs, moody winter florals and William Morris prints. The statement print trend seen at the Dolce & Gabbana Autumn Winter 2011 show in Milan, Italy.

Retro Fever Man Up Warn your partner to lock up his wardrobe because masculine togs are huge this season. The subtle difference is that they're made to fit the female form. This boy/girl twist trend of anti-feminine fashion is multifaceted, from toyboy sexiness with tailored blazers, sharp shirts and oversized coats, to dandy cuteness with dickie bow ties, tuxedos and brogue flats. But while you can celebrate the opportunity to ditch your high heels and 'breathe in' dresses, this doesn't mean losing your inner glamazon completely. Sparkly trousers, embellished tuxedo jackets and sexy silk shirts are all ways to do 'glam man' and avoid showing up your husband's dress sense. The androgyny trend seen at the Paul Smith show at London Fashion Week.

If last summer was a Seventies celebration then this season is a retro love-in. There's a decade to re-visit for every style taste, so make a choice based on your body shape and favourite colour palette. For a flirtation with ladylike glamour, head back to the Forties with form-fitting dresses and two-piece suits topped off by faux fur shrugs, pretty gloves and pearls. Ideal for petites, the Sixties scene is cute and playful with monochromatic shift dresses, swing coats and graphic prints that embrace the mod period. Or make a return to the Seventies with this carry-over trend of midi skirts, wide-leg pants and floppy felt hats in muted tones like mustard, rust and teal.

motoring News Nick Fletcher bring us the latest news on all things motoring

JUKE REVISED

Car buyers opting for Nissan’s Juke crossover are about to get cheaper motoring at no extra cost. As part of Nissan’s drive to improve its products, both the 1.6-litre petrol and 1.5-litre dCi diesel drivetrains have undergone an optimisation programme to reduce emissions and boost fuel economy. Thanks to revised gear ratios, 1.6-litre petrol and 1.5-litre dCi turbodiesel models fitted with

manual transmissions are now cleaner and more fuel-efficient. The 1.6-litre petrol variant now returns 47.1 mpg combined – an improvement of 2.3mpg – and emits just 139g/km of CO2, a reduction of 8g/km. As a result of these changes, the 1.6-litre petrol model now sits in VED Band E, meaning that owners will pay £15 less to tax their cars. With the fuel savings factored in, the optimisation changes will save the typical owner £232 over the course of three years. Customers opting for the revised 1.5-litre dCi diesel see fuel economy improve from 55.4 mpg to 57.6mpg combined, and emissions fall from 134g/km to just 129g/km. As with the petrol model, the revised dieselpowered Juke drops a VED band (from E to D), and now costs just £95 a year to tax. Over the course of three years, the savings add up to an estimated £171.92. The icing on the cake for all Juke buyers is that these revisions come at no additional cost. Onthe-road prices have been held, meaning that buyers really can make a saving by choosing the Juke. Over 22,000 Jukes have been sold in the UK since it was launched in September 2010.

THE NEW BMW M5 Making it's UK debut in November, the new BMW M5, modestly described by the company as "an exceptionally dynamic high-performance sports car with four doors and five seats." The new M5 features a 4.4 litre V8 engine offering a hefty 552 hp. The 0-60 mph is just 4.5 seconds and the top speed is limited to 155 mph. Its combined fuel consumption is 28.5 mpg. It features a new 7-speed double-clutch gearbox and delivers outstandingly agile handling thanks to an innovative rear axle differential which enables fully variable distribution of drive between the rear wheels to optimise traction and stability. Cost of the new M5 is around £73,000, with a wide range of options available.

6%

of motorists always drive at 90mph on motorways, 20mph over the speed limit.

Road test RENAULT CLIO The Renault Clio has been long been one of Britain’s most popular hatchbacks, winning praise for its chic image and nimble driving credentials. And though competition in the sector has increased in recent years, the Clio still runs with the pack leaders. Clio prices start at around £8,000 for a 1.2 litre petrol version, but most buyers tend to opt for mid-range models with higher equipment levels and more power. One of the obvious choices is the 1.5 litre diesel version which in 3-door form with Expression trim level costs £12,200. The engine offers 88 hp, delivers a top speed of 108 mph and has a 0-60 mph time of 12.7 seconds. The statistics are not exceptional by class standards but the majority of buyers in this sector are looking for economy rather than tyre-burning performance, and this is where this Clio scores. The combined fuel economy figure is an impressive 70.6 mpg. That figure is achieved by a very efficient diesel engine, smooth aerodynamics and weight-saving construction. The Clio is visually very attractive, and while Renault’s current advertising doesn’t quite have the same impact as the famous Nicole and Papa series from the 1990s, many people still 140

recall those ads and that chic French style still clings to current models. Inside, the cabin is roomy for front occupants and – like many in the sector – just reasonable for rear passengers. The boot is more than adequate for normal needs and space can be boosted by fold-down rear seats. Standard equipment on this Expression version includes most of the essentials – power steering, power windows and mirrors, front and side airbags, remote locking and a radio/CD/ MP3/iPod sound system. Another plus point is that the Clio scores well on safety, getting a maximum 5-star NCAP

rating for adult passengers and a 4-star for child–protection. Underway, this Clio is very pleasant to drive, with a light easy feel to it and a quiet engine. The power steering has a nice balance which aids parking, and despite a slowish 0-60 mph time of 12.7 seconds, it feels quicker. Handling is sweet, and the general driving sensation is fluent and flexible. The ride quality good apart from on rough surfaces when it gets choppy. FOR: Visual style and charisma, great fuel economy, user-friendly feel. AGAINST: Some interior materials reveal a little cost-cutting.

the master of all chefs

144

One of TV's busiest chefs certainly has his finger on the pulse, somehow finding time each year to film three versions of Masterchef, oversee two restaurants and take part in food festivals across the country. John Torode tells us what keeps him excited about cooking in Britain today. Blood had already been spilled on the Celebrity MasterChef set, as lingerie entrepreneur Michelle Mone filleted her hand, rather than the fish, in the very first episode. But that's ancient history to the show's presenter John Torode, who's currently filming the main MasterChef series, set to air early next year. As the presenter of a trio of MasterChefs (Junior MasterChef being the third), many wannabe chefs have passed through his kitchens. But despite having presented more than 14 series of the hit cooking show, he finds the search for new talent never wears thin. "There are highlights within every series. Times when you taste something and it brings you into absolute raptures. And you hope that continues all the way through," he says. At the moment, the Aussie chef is up to his neck in amateurs competing for the coveted Masterchef Of The Year title. "Starting a new series, you have the most extraordinary sense of expectation," says Torode, happy to talk, but careful not to give away any revelatory details. "We're in the throws of discovering the best amateur cooks in the country and there's nothing more brilliant than that." And of course, he and copresenter Greg Wallace aren't at all picky... "They have a gift," says Torode emphatically about what makes a winner. "In the same way some people are able to play an instrument with what seems like no effort at all, great cooks have a palate, their senses are alive. "It's not just about how things look and taste, but how they feel,

their texture, their smell and how they cook. It's almost like they've got an extra sense and can harness it to make something extraordinary." During the past decade, Torode has enjoyed being at the centre of Britain's food revolution. Masterchef winners have come from far and wide - a reflection of how high-quality cooking has infiltrated every corner of the British Isles. For Torode, some of his favourite food haunts are way outside of the capital, where he owns two restaurants. "Being an Aussie, I like the idea of being near a bit of water, so for me it's all about what the coast has to offer. "I adore heading to Craster on the Northumbrian coast, where there's an amazing castle. Then you can walk along the beach, end up at the pub and eat the best crab sandcastle, washed down with a bottle of dog. "That for me is the essence of local food. And I love Norfolk for the same reason." Torode also spends time in Cornwall, where he says chefs such as Nathan Outlaw are cooking up a coastal storm. "You can go wherever you like and you'll find these extraordinary places that are fantastic. And it's lucky there are so many people wanting to be chefs, because growth in the restaurant business across the country is so great now." Currently taking part in London's Restaurant Festival, during which cooks from all over the country will be demonstrating their skills, Torode says he loves the influences diverse food events are having on cooking culture. "I was recently at the Liverpool Food Festival and it blew my mind. There were 20,000 people being really interested in what was going on. It was a great chance to do something we all love: eat, drink and talk!" Here are three recipes from John Torode's restaurant, Smiths of Smithfield.

Salt & pepper squid, roast chilli, garlic & coriander INGREDIENTS (Serves 2) 500g (cleaned weight) medium-sized squid, scored 5 cloves garlic A good handful of coriander 10 white peppercorns 20g sea salt 100g plain flour 1 litre vegetable oil For the chilli dressing: 2 limes - juiced 3 dried chillies (roasted and deseeded) 50g palm sugar 125ml fish sauce METHOD In a pestle and mortar, pound the roasted dried chilli and then add the palm sugar. Pound again adding the lime juice and fish sauce. Mix well and place to one side. Preheat the oven to 160C/Gas mark 4. Preheat one litre of vegetable oil in a wok or a deep fryer if you have one. Pound the peppercorns and sea salt together in the pestle and mortar and then add flour, set to one side. Peel half the garlic and pound with the remaining whole cloves. The cloves should split open and the flesh and skin should come together. Throw the pounded garlic into the preheated oil, lower the heat to a bubble and leave to cook for a good five minutes, stirring every so often. The garlic will float to the top and be crisp. With a strainer remove the garlic and drain well on kitchen roll. Place the wok back over a high heat, when the oil starts to shimmer, it's ready to cook in. Toss the squid in seasoned flour so that it's coated well. Drop a quarter of the squid in the oil and fry in batches for about four to five minutes. The squid should curl and go crisp. Remove from the oil and place on a preheated tray in the oven until the remainder is cooked. Place the garlic with the picked coriander in a large bowl, add the cooked squid, toss well and serve on individual plates with the dressing around the outside.


Slow roast belly of pork, green sauce & mash

INGREDIENTS (Serves 6) 2kg piece of belly pork, bone in, rind on 1tsp salt 4 cloves garlic 2tsp paprika 30ml vegetable oil Juice of 1 lemon For the mash: 1kg Maris Piper potatoes 250g butter 150ml double cream Salt and pepper For the green sauce: Handful of flat parsley Handful of basil 2 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed 1 boiled egg Handful fresh white breadcrumbs 1tbsp white vinegar 1tbsp capers 50ml olive oil Pinch of salt METHOD The day before eating, score the skin of the pork with a very sharp knife in a criss-cross fashion at 1cm intervals. In a mixing bowl combine all the remaining ingredients. Rub the pork with the marinade and leave for 12-24 hours. On the day of eating, preheat the oven to 150C/Gas mark 2. Lay the pork in a roasting tin and pour over the remaining marinade, adding half a cup of water to the bottom of the tray. Cover with foil and cook in the oven for three hours. Remove the foil and increase the temperature of the oven to 180C/ Gas mark 4. Cook for a further 40 minutes until the skin is crisp. Remove from the oven and leave to rest for 30 minutes. While it's resting, peel the potatoes, bring to the boil and simmer for 15-20 minutes. Use this time to prepare the green sauce by placing the parsley, basil and garlic in a food processor and blending to a paste. Then add the remaining ingredients and pulse for 30 seconds so it's not a paste, but a roughly chopped mix. Drain and mash the potatoes. Melt the butter and cream together in a saucepan on a low heat, and fold into the potato, before seasoning with salt and pepper to taste. Remove the bones from the pork (they should easily pull away from the flesh) and trim the edges to keep for a snack later. Cut the pork into six pieces and return to the oven for 10 minutes to heat through again. Serve on the mash with the green sauce spooned over.

Little pots of chocolate INGREDIENTS (Serves 4) 285ml single cream 200g best quality cooking chocolate (70% cocoa solids) 2 large egg yolks 3tbsp brandy 20g butter METHOD In a thick-bottomed pan, heat the cream until nearly boiling. Remove and set aside for one minute before snapping in your chocolate. Stir in until melted and smooth. Once melted, beat in your egg yolks and brandy and stir until smooth. Allow to cool slightly before stirring in the butter until the mixture is smooth. Pour into individual serving pots. Sometimes if you add the butter when the chocolate isn't cool enough, it will make the chocolate look as though it's split. To rectify this, allow the mixture to cool a little longer before whisking in a little cold milk until you have a smooth consistency again.

a chat with the head IAIN ROBERTSON BUCKHOLME TOWERS The New School Year For many of our pupils, this is their first experience of ‘big school’, as not all of them progress through from our own Nursery. However, already, only a few weeks in, they are happy and confident in their new surroundings – in fact it seems to be the parents that suffer with the separation issues! This is an extremely busy time for both pupils and staff. With Harvest Festival on the horizon, every corner of the school is filled with the sounds of children singing, rehearsing lines and practising their instruments. Open Days and Grammar School Tests Meanwhile, our oldest pupils are preoccupied with thoughts of grammar school tests and senior school open days. Preparation for our own Open Morning is also well under way, as we ensure that the school is shown in the best possible light. New Opportunities One of the things I particularly enjoy about this end of the year is the excitement that new opportunities create for our pupils, particularly those moving up into the senior part of the school. It might be the chance to play in the school football, netball or rugby team (and that is boys and girls!) or it may be the chance to take the watersports option for half a term, learning to sail, windsurf and kayak; or, it may just be the thrill of moving to a classroom where they have the traditional desks with lids, instead of tables! The School Council This time of year also sees the new members of the School Council being voted in by their class mates. Representatives from each class meet once a month to give their views and opinions on many aspects of school life; they always come armed with suggestions on how to improve things! Topics might include fundraising, school lunches, playtime games, school rules and the question that always comes up, “Can we have a school tuck shop?!” Maybe this will be the year….. A little test With grammar school test preparation high on the agenda, I thought I’d leave you with a little teaser from a current 11+ practice paper. Good luck!

decisions on interior design in her own inimitable way. The series will also consist of candid interviews with those closest to Amy; her friends, family, her manager Claire, and the lady herself. For the first time, we’ll also meet her Mum, Dad and her brother Billy, and there will be exotic trips abroad to New York and Dubai – and of course to Chigwell and Brentwood too. Jeff Ford, Channel 5’s Director of Programmes comments, “We’re delighted to be following Amy as she embarks on the next, exciting stage of her life. She’s one of the most talked about women in Britain and we’re sure our viewers will take the bubbly bombshell to their hearts.” Amy Childs comments, “I am ecstatic to have my own reality show. It will be great because people will be able to see the real me. I am loving filming it and I can’t wait for everyone to see it.”

Channel 5 have announced the signing of Britain’s best-loved Essex Girl, Amy Childs for an intimate and revealing look at her extraordinary life. Having shot to fame as the star of The Only Way Is Essex, taken the country by storm in Channel 5’s Celebrity Big Brother this Summer and even starred in this month’s Vogue Magazine, Amy’s every stiletto heeled step will be captured by camera crews for the eight-part series, It’s All About Amy, which will TX from December 2011. Cameras have been following the flame-haired glamour girl ever since she left the Big Brother house and the series will see Amy embark on a series of new adventures; the most important being the opening of her very own beauty salon. A beautician by trade, Amy was credited with inventing the now legendary vajazzle, and we’ll see her interviewing staff and making key

interview

Karl pilkington an idiot abroad 2 SKY1

How did Sky 1 get you to agree to a second series? Were you conscious when you signed the contract? I'm not even sure I've signed a contract. I've got to get money in to pay the bills and, at the end of the day, it's because of Ricky and Steve. They sort of said, 'Oh it will be better this time, we'll let you do what you want'. That's how the Bucket List idea came about, the great things you're supposed to do before you die. I soon found out that these weren't great things to do. You came up with a few conditions for Ricky and Steve to stick to, but they appear to have found a few loopholes/ignored them… I went through the list and picked what I wanted to do, but had no idea where I was going, so whale watching turned out to be in Alaska. I chose swimming with dolphins as well, but when I got there, it was sharks. Sharks are probably the preferred option though because, according to a few articles on Google, dolphins are the rapists of the sea… The racists? Oh, the rapists. I'm not surprised really. I suppose that's what happens. Everyone raves about them, but you're always going to get bad ones in the bunch. It just goes to show that you can't take anything for granted. One day they're saving people, the next… It's fair to say that you weren't wowed by the Wonders. How did you find the Bucket List? It's been better, but only slightly. This list of things to do is put together by other people, so it's not my list. I was more in charge, but it's still someone else's idea of what's ideal. I don't think people really know what they want from life. They dream about things but, in reality, when those dreams come true, they're normally pretty shit. People win the lottery and think all their problems have been solved; then family members come out the woodwork wanting money, there are arguments and you end up splitting and getting a divorce. You're better off not getting what you want because dreaming about it is better. That's what

I've found. I can't complain though because I picked these things to do. I went to a desert island and thought it would be like a Bounty advert, sun, sand, blue sea. It was one of the most depressing things I've ever done. Have you enjoyed any of your experiences so far? I went to this house that had a hippo and that was really good, and so was this dwarf village in China. How has your life changed since the first series of An Idiot Abroad? I've got more air miles. Aside from that, nothing at all, not one iota. I got more money than I did on the last job but, in terms of life, nothing's changed. I don't have a showbizy lifestyle and don't know why people want to be famous. People say fame changes their lives but, like the Bucket List, it's not all it's cracked up to be. I've selected a couple of to-dos from my own Bucket List, one plausible and one implausible, and want you to give your verdict on them: Learn how to skateboard… How old are you? 25. If you'd written to Jim'll Fix It, you would have been picked because it's probably the easiest thing to cover. You can get one for £8. I don't understand why you haven't done it already. It's like I'm talking to Oliver Twist who hasn't got a shilling in his pocket. Hug a baby panda… What's the difference between that and hugging, I don't know, another type of little furry thing? There aren't any baby pandas are there? I thought they were becoming extinct. Pandas are overrated. There's a panda on youTube that's got 20 million hits just because it farted or something. That shows how little they do. I'd pick a koala bear because they'll probably hug you back, or a sloth; they'd cling on. With a panda, it'd just be you doing the hugging. I don't think it'd give anything back. Ok, I think I'm going to re-evaluate my list. My final question is, what's your favourite vegetable and why? It's funny because when I was doing Route 66 in America, you couldn't get any vegetables,


into the range of lifestyles existing there today. She meets Nana Mouskouri, the most famous of all Greek singers, who performs for Joanna at Epidaurus, and the flower-throwing hedonistic nightclub goers of Athens, as well as venturing off the beaten tourist trail to find the remote villagers of the Mani Peninsular who eek out a living from the land, cooking wild asparagus picked fresh from the hillside. She spends time with the shepherds of Crete whose forefathers helped defeat the Nazis, meets a rare breed of islanders who are continuing to speak with one another using an old language based on whistling, and she explores the remote border lands of Greece, home to established Muslim communities who grow tobacco to make a living.

it was just meat. I was desperate, and my body knew I was lacking veg. At that point, I would have eaten anything. If I have to single one out though… Hang on, I'm thinking… Just one? That's hard that… Mine's broccoli I'm not a fan really, I'd eat it and do eat it, but it's too watery though. Maybe that's just the way Suzanne cooks it. Broccoli always seems a bit tasteless. Can I put things with my chosen vegetable? Sure... There are so many different vegetables and fruit out there now. When I was a kid, it was just apples, oranges and bananas, and peas, carrots and potato. Is potato a vegetable? You can do so much with that; jacket, chips, mash… OK, it'd have to be a leek with salt. I normally like that with a Sunday roast, eating the leek with a bit of salt.

Joanna Lumley's Greek Odyssey Thursdays, 9:00PM, ITV1

Joanna Lumley sets out to explore one of the most diverse and surprising countries in Europe, where much of western civilisation began. On her odyssey, Joanna encounters both the ancient and modern aspects of Greece, touching on how the origins of drama, democracy, science, philosophy and medicine can be found here, and how they have left an enduring legacy on the fabric of our everyday life. Following in the footsteps of the ancient Greeks, she visits some of the most significant sites of their empire, exploring the history, gods, beliefs, myths and legends which hail from this profoundly significant chapter in European history. Delphi, Ancient Olympia, the Gates of Hades and Mount Olympus all feature within her travels. So too does the British influence on this land, from the occupation of Corfu to its connection with the most romantic of all poets, Lord Byron. Joanna provides a glimpse of the diversity of cultures within Greece and provides an insight

rowan atkinson Seriously gifted

160

Four years after his last outing, Rowan Atkinson returns to the big screen as bumbling British spy Johnny English in Johnny English Reborn, released in cinemas on Friday, October 7. The legendary comic talks stunts, royalty and Blackadder Rowan Atkinson has been known to bring an audience to its knees just by raising an eyebrow. But the comic genius, who's entertained us for more than 30 years with memorable characters such as Edmund Blackadder and Mr Bean, is surprisingly grave in real life. "Generally speaking, I find work quite hard and stressful," admits the 56-year-old, crossing one sharply suited leg over the other. "It's much friendlier being in an ensemble cast. One of the problems with Mr Bean, for example, is it's far more singular and you're on your own as a performer, whereas with Blackadder, there was this democratic feel of the jokes being distributed around the cast and that made for a very nice atmosphere." Atkinson talks in an earnest way, choosing and enunciating his words carefully, perhaps to avoid the stammer that occasionally slips into conversation - and yet, reportedly, never occurs while he's in character. He readily admits his desire to carefully control his roles leads to long gaps between films. As a result it's been eight years since his last turn as bumbling spy Johnny English. "One of the problems I have is the need to be part of the process from the very beginning to the very end," he says, taking a precise sip from a china cup holding tea and a slice of lemon. "I sometimes yearn for a world in which an actor just turns up for six weeks, does his bit, then goes away and does another film. I tend to be part of the scriptwriting, shooting and postproduction process, which dribbles on for months, and means the project takes years. "If you want to do a bit of theatre or take time off, then inevitably it's going to be every four or five years that films appear. Eventually I'll just run out of time," he adds, with a sober laugh. His last film role was in Mr Bean's Holiday in 2007 (Atkinson pronounces it "twenty-oh-seven")

after which he got "distracted" by playing Fagin in Oliver! The Musical in London's West End. But he's been in talks to revisit Johnny English since 2006. "Unfortunately, I'm someone who can only have one ball in the air at once," he says, the 'b' of ball bursting from his mouth a la Blackadder. "I have to devote myself to a project entirely and if I get distracted by something else, what I'm working on stops dead in its tracks. But eventually I got round to the sequel." His new outing, Johnny English Reborn, draws on - and parodies - the new Bond films and the Bourne saga. The MI7 secret agent has been hiding in a Tibet monastery since a botched operation in Mozambique eight years ago. He's called back into action and returns to Britain to find MI7 has changed and is now being run by Pamela Thornton, aka Pegasus (Gillian Anderson). His mission is to fly to Hong Kong and untangle a plot to assassinate the Chinese Premier Xiang Ping. But first he's introduced to behavioural psychologist Kate (Rosamund Pike) and reunited with his idol Agent Ambrose (Dominic West) as well as the wheelchair-bound Quartermain (Tim McInnerny), who sets him up with a stash of gadgets and a Rolls-Royce Phantom with a ninelitre V16 engine. The car was Atkinson's idea. He's a speed fanatic, who clocked the fastest ever guest lap on Top Gear this summer, just weeks before he came off a wet road in Cambridgeshire in his McLaren F1 and walked away relatively unscathed. "I was very concerned for the car," is all he'll say of the accident that could have cost him his life. "It was really unfortunate, but anyway we'll mend it in time." Luckily there were no collisions on set for the actor who dreamt up a high-speed wheelchair chase for Johnny English. "It was quite scary at times, because it had a go-kart engine in it and it went 35 or 40 miles an hour and that's fast, far too fast in a wheelchair which is potentially unstable. But I survived," he adds, grinning. The new film is, he believes, more sophisticated than its predecessor. "It's more like a comedy thriller than a tacky spy spoof. I mean, not that I want to describe the first film as a tacky spy spoof," he backtracks

quickly, laughing. "But it's bigger budget, a more serious-minded film, with a better plot. I think you're always interested to know what happens next. "And the character is more three-dimensional and engaging in this film. You root for him more than you did the first time and want him to succeed. "Johnny English works very well when his mistakes, flaws and silliness are put in a very serious context and in this film, with the strength of the supporting actors, we've created that." Take the high-level security meeting he's having with Pegasus, Ambrose and the Prime Minister, when he starts adjusting his seat height and ends up at eye level with the table top. It's one of the oldest visual gags in the book, but Atkinson times it to perfection. Director Oliver Parker has said that when he called "cut" after filming the first take, the whole cast exploded in laughter, while Atkinson was genuinely confused by what they found so funny because he was concentrating so hard. "My personal problem is I take the business of film-making so seriously, I find it hard to relax," he says. "I find it incredibly difficult to fall about laughing when things go wrong, I tend to just close up. "We had exactly the same problem with Blackadder and all those TV shows that I did. They're always looking for bloopers, the moment when the glass broke or the doorknob came off in your hand, but there was never any reaction from me whatsoever. My brain is always focused on other things." While he's been reported as saying that Mr Bean may never be reprised, Atkinson is not too "ambitious" about turning Johnny English into a long-running franchise. But his face lights up about the possibility of more Blackadder, however. "There's always a chance. Most of the ideas we had about a fifth series of the Blackadder have probably been dashed by the fact that everyone's got rather old. "I think as the years trip by, it becomes more and more difficult to recreate whatever we had together in the 1980s and reproduce it in a new context but it's not impossible... it's not impossible."
