WELCOME TO OUR HOUSE

Hello readers and welcome to another edition of HOUSE magazine. This last week has seem some ridiculously good weather here in Dorset and as I write this, we’re only hoping it will last through the weekend, as I have a car to wash and a lawn to mow. As usual, I’ll try and enlist the help of our 2 year old, with little success I think, as his little mower just can’t pull off the lawn stripes required at Harman towers. The weather may have been fantastic, but the traffic has been truly unfortunate, with everyone it seems heading off to the south west for their Summer break and all going via our congested roads. This really aught to encourage me to cycle to the office more, particularly with the 100 mile cycle ride now firmly on the horizon! This issue we’ve got some cracking features for you, not least of which is our interview with Take That! Yes, Take That! They talk about their upcoming tour amongst other things. And if that’s not enough, we’ve got previous

Apprentices dishing the dirt, a round-up of the best programming coming to your TVs, some nice hooks, portable seats, celebs with bobs and a beautiful New England style home. Phew! We’re also packed to the rafters with more property for sale and to let than you can shake a stick at. Other things worth noting and coming soon are an amazing Celebrity Exhibition at the BIC that features a huge amount of fascinating memorabilia on display including Marilyn Monroe's Little Black Dress. Check out their site for details at www.bic.co.uk. Next month also sees the Polo return to Sandbanks, we’ll be there sipping champagne and enjoying the sun, so do visit www.sandpolo.com for more info.

SIMON CLARKE Birthdays have never really meant much to me The Wave 105 presenter discovers the joys of Birthdays.

This is probably because my own one is the day after Christmas and as a child the two days always blurred into one. Whilst my friends thought that it was great that I got double presents or sometimes got a bigger combined gift I never had the chance to experience the excitement of a birthday coming around.Then I had children of my own and discovered the joy of a birthday celebration from them. They in turn now make sure that my big day actually feels special and separate from the day before. This month Wave 105 celebrates its 13th birthday and it is quite an important milestone for us as we do it having just fulfilled an ambition from our launch.We set out to achieve a total audience of over four hundred thousand listeners each week listening for a combined total of over 4 million hours and it was fitting that in our latest quarterly audience figures we managed to reach that target. In a time where listeners have never had so much choice with Digital Radio and the internet it is very humbling to know that more people are choosing to spend their time with us. Like most teenagers we’ve changed quite a lot as we’ve grown older. We are not afraid to introduce new acts (something we were recognised for a few days ago when Music Industry bible “Music Week” named us Regional Radio Station of the Year) and we also support local unsigned bands with a feature on Sunday evenings. Our support of the music industry means we also secure big name interviews and last month were the only nonnational radio station to be granted an audience with Lady Gaga. Some of the music may have changed with the times but there are still lots of familiar things about Wave 105 like some of the voices you hear each day. You would have to look very hard to find a radio station in the country that has a presenter who has been with the station for 12 years and we have 3!One of whom (Steve Power) has been waking up the south with his breakfast show for almost all of that time! The other constant during our lifetime has been our localness and while some of our competitors have had theirs stripped away we have built on ours, most recently launching a charity to benefit disadvantaged children in the South. We grow up a lot during our teenage years as individuals and undoubtedly so will the radio station but deep down we will still be the same old Wave 105. You can catch Simon on Wave 105 weekdays from 1pm – 4pm and on the Sunday breakfast show until 10am.

A Slice Of New England‌ ...In England 25

Outside there is a walled and secure front garden with driveway and shaped lawn with raised planters. At the rear clever landscaping incorporates a large hardwood decked area, a beautiful stone water feature the full width of the garden and two raised flower beds.


The home of Chris and Fiona Bevan is just two miles from the walled town of Chichester in West Sussex. However, from the outside it wouldn't look amiss nestled amongst the New England style homes of Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont in America. Venture inside and it's different again, with the interiors having been given a distinctive Eastern twist. When Chris and Fiona brought Maybury for ÂŁ715,000 in 2008 it was a drab 60s, detached home that featured a warren of different rooms. The couple spent ÂŁ350,000 completely transforming the property, with work taking around a year to complete, and today it is double the size. The front boasts white clapperboard, gables and a veranda, while inside it is all dark walnut floors, Eastern dĂŠcor and lavish open plan layout. It total, the property boasts five double bedrooms, four bathrooms, a luxurious kitchen and a stunning dining hall. A modern glass block and oak staircase rises up to one of the property's most dramatic features a mezzanine first floor landing. Complete with glass balustrade and featuring a delightful sitting room, this area overlooks the main reception below and benefits from wonderful views. Partially sub-divided from the sitting/living room by a large central chimneybreast - which features a remote controlled contemporary gas fireplace - is a cosy reception hall/winter dining room. Adjacent to these two areas is the luxurious kitchen, which was designed and manufactured in Germany. This room boasts Hacker graphite oak units with Kashmir white granite worksurfaces and a beautiful porcelain tiled floor. Meanwhile, a bespoke glass central island fitted with a number of integral appliances takes pride of place.

27


28

Upstairs the master bedroom has an open plan bathroom with screened wet room and twin glass hand basins. Meanwhile, the main family bathroom boasts a walk in tiled shower and an oval double ended bath.


The centrepiece is a magnificent vaulted sitting/living room and dining area. This huge space features a vast triple-height wall of glass that looks out on the garden and takes advantage of the southerly aspect.

Next to the main living space is a large extension added by Chris and Fiona that houses a garage and spa room. Accessed either by doors from the living room or doors from the garden, the spa room has its own sunken Jacuzzi, mood lighting and adjoining wet room.

Ways with walls

Forget paint, wallpaper is where it's at for stylish, individual homes - but the choice is so vast it could drive you wild! Experts offer their wisdom for wrapping up walls.

Gone are the days when a feature wall painted in a bright colour was considered the ultimate in interior design. Unless you've been living in a cave, you'll have noticed that wallpaper has been staging something of a comeback. Digitally printed or hand embroidered, retro or luxuriously glam, the stylish options for your walls are infinite. According to Kate Kingston, managing director of interior design company Kingston Shaw, wallpaper is key to transforming a house into a stylish home. Kingston, who has been designing interiors for private and corporate clients in London, Los Angeles and Milan for more than 20 years, says wallpaper gives homeowners a chance to express their personality and individuality. "That's why it excites designers. Wallpaper is an excellent way to inject colour, texture and impact onto a blank canvas," she says. Melanie Adams, wallcoverings expert at Wallpaperdirect, says homeowners are becoming more adventurous about how they use wallpaper - and are prepared to experiment in certain rooms, including bathrooms. Work out ways with walls to suit your home with advice from the experts. 45


Personal print There are plenty of amazing papers available, but new technology means you can create a special design just for your home. Kate Kingston says advances in digital printing mean designers and manufacturers work with homeowners to create stunning, one-off wall art. "We have found that bespoke wall coverings are becoming increasingly desirable to our clients," she says. "They appreciate the exclusivity that a unique design delivers." Kingston Shaw recently created a bachelor pad in a penthouse apartment in Liverpool's prestigious One Park West development, using bespoke wall coverings. The company's designers collaborated with Digetex, using its digital printing process to make a custom-fitted "alluring eyes" image that matched the dimensions of the wall to the millimetre. They hung a mirrored wallpaper design from Osborne & Little on the ceiling as a contemporary nod to the bachelor pads of the 1970s, then created a digitally printed dartboard wall covering, topped with a competition dartboard. Digetex have a range of imaginative wall-covers including their Dickens Bookcase wallpaper mural that mimics shelves full of books and starts from £129. Other wallpapers start from around £20 and bespoke digital prints from £180. Top tip: Digital printing means you can blow up a personal image that you love - even one from your life - and hang it on your wall, says Kingston. She adds: "If it's your own personal photo I'd advise having it enlarged first and pinning it on the wall to decide if it's really suitable to be seen day after day."

46

Touchy feely Dramatic wall treatments may not be to everyone's taste, but that doesn't mean there isn't a wallpaper out there to suit your home. If you're nervous at the thought of covering your walls in bold designs, Kingston suggests going for texture rather than pattern. "To avoid that oppressive feeling of a busy patterned paper on all four walls, create a focal point by choosing a feature wall and painting the others in sympathetic neutrals," she advises. "Using a textured wallpaper will add interest to a wall, without allowing the design to dominate." There aren't any rules about where to hang your chosen wallpaper. "Get creative," says Kingston. "Wallpaper can be hung on the ceiling or pasted on panels. Or you could try it in strips or geometric shapes on top of neutral painted walls to add warmth and depth." House Couturier has a stunning range of papers including a Quilter Lacquer wallcovering, from £98 a linear metre, and its Glam Grass metallic paper woven wallcovering, handcrafted in Japan, which has a shimmering effect, starts at £74 a linear metre.


Full-on florals Flower prints and patterns never go out of fashion but interpretation of nature's blooms is ongoing, and ensures there's always a fresh look to pick from. "Floral designs have come straight off the catwalk this spring. There is a hot trend for smaller floral designs," says Paula Taylor, colour specialist at Graham & Brown. "Larger floral prints are mixed and matched with smaller botanicals to create a co-ordinated look. Pretty blooms feature on the company's Lacework and Passion Lily papers, £30 a roll, and its Superfresco collection, from £20 a roll, also has attractive prints. Little Greene's Fifties Line Papers collection, from £38 a roll, features beautiful floral designs and, unusually, others inspired by herbs. Papers £44.50 a roll.

Track a trend Kingston says wallpaper and wall art trends often follow catwalk fashion, but nowadays leading design brands are even expanding their ranges to include wall coverings. "It's a sure sign of the growth, popularity and staying power of wallpaper that luxury brands are also entering the wall covering market," says Kingston. French brand Hermes, famous for its silk scarves, launched a small selection of wall coverings in March, starting from around £120 a roll. Swarovski has just unveiled its opulent wallpaper range, which has the appearance of antique gilded glass with each rectangular pane fixed with a cluster of crystal rocks. It costs £560 a roll.

Celebration walls Designers at Mini Moderns have created an exclusive print to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Festival of Britain. Its geometric design features highlights of the event in 1951 and the paper is printed using water-based inks. It costs £50 a roll. Wimbledon fans could mark the occasion with green and yellow Tennis wallpaper, £72 a roll, with a geometric design of rackets and balls. It's from Turner & Pocock's Sports range at Garrendenny Lane Interiors. Alternatively, Graham & Brown makes it easy to turn walls into a crowning glory with its monochrome Crowns and Coronets design wallpaper - perfect for this year's busy wedding season! It's £25 a roll and can be accessorised with jewels, £7 a pack. Top tip: "People are becoming aware that it's possible to have fun with walls," says Paula Taylor. "With easy-to-hang papers it's perfectly possible to change a wall if you decide it's no longer to your taste. You can refresh a scheme by choosing new wallpaper or painting over it, which is particularly effective if it's textured."

Stella Swinburne, McCarthy & Stone retirement apartment owner.

My story?

“Time and money. Two things I wish I had more of before I moved and now I have both I lived in a three bedroom bungalow before I bought my apartment but it’s amazing how the little jobs that need doing add up. I was forever forking out for someone to fix this or that. Now I don’t have to worry about a thing. I reckon I’m at least £50 a month better off since moving. No gas bills as everything is electric. Just one service charge means no separate water rates, no individual window cleaner or gardener to pay for. And as for external maintenance that’s all included. Even my personal alarm I used to carry with me is redundant thanks to the 24-hour emergencycall system. Saving money has also given me more time to enjoy myself and that’s worth more to me than anything else. If you’d like to see more stories like Stella’s, visit our website www.mccarthyandstone.co.uk

DREAM HOME

A quite beautifully located, late Victorian former estate lodge with four bedrooms, extensive equestrian facilities and grounds, extending to over 3.25 acres. Vereley Lodge occupies a secluded plot on high ground enjoying enviable views across neighbouring farmland and Forest. The internal accommodation includes a Sitting Room, Conservatory, Dining/Family Room, Study, four double bedrooms and three bathrooms. Externally the property boasts a one bedroom timber chalet, an indoor swimming pool, extensive stable yard and paddocks with direct Forest access. Vereley Lodge is located in a quite delightful position, surrounded by Forest, just outside arguably one of the most beautiful and sought after villages in The New Forest. The property is ideally situated to make full use of all the wonderful facilities the Forest has to offer, whether it be sailing at nearby Lymington (12 miles) or golf at the many courses in the area including Brockenhurst with its mainline railway station (8 miles, Waterloo 90 mins.) Burley village 88

is less than 2 miles distant and the market town of Ringwood is but a short drive (3 miles). From the village proceed in a northerly direction. After leaving Burley Street turn right at the top of the Hill onto the unmade track signposted â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Access to Vereley Properties Onlyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. The property will be found after several hundred yards on the left. Vereley Lodge is an extremely pretty landmark property with the original parts dating back to the late Victorian era. Although the house has been extended over recent years to provide all the accommodation necessary in a modern family home there is still the opportunity for the purchaser to improve and update to make Vereley Lodge a unique and character property. Currently, the accommodation is made up of two floors with two reception rooms, a study and conservatory along with three bedrooms and two bathrooms on the ground floor and with bedroom four and a further bathroom found on the first floor. The route to Vereley Lodge takes you along an unmade up track crossing stunning Forest with ponies, cattle and donkeys meandering right up


ÂŁ1,250,000 to the Lodgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gate. The house is approached over a cattle grid which leads onto a large block paved driveway. Vereley Lodge sits on a plot of over 3.25 acres and its extensive stable yard and paddock land make it a desirable equestrian property. The property also boasts a large indoor swimming pool housed in a barn style building, a beautifully presented timber one bedroom chalet (ancillary to the main house) and a detached open garage and workshop.

THE LATEST NEWS ON ALL THINGS MOTORING

Battery leasing the way forward Research has shown that battery leasing for electric vehicles is likely to provide better whole life costs than other commercial approaches. The figures by vehicle valuations expert Glass's are the first comparative values released for an EV with the battery included, an EV with a leased battery and a range-extender EV. The values show that the Nissan Leaf for which the purchase cost includes the battery retains 35 percent of its value after three years and 36,000 miles. In comparison an electric vehicle similar in size but with a leased battery should retain 54 percent of its original value over the same period. A range-extender electric vehicle will retain 43 per cent of its value. Andy Carroll, Managing Director at Glass's UK, commented: "The use of whole life costs is the only way to assess the new powertrain technologies and differing business models. Our analysis shows that the new wave of vehicles is economically viable even before taking allowance of company car tax and local incentives. "In particular the battery leasing option that we assessed is attractive for the car buyer as it not only means the initial purchase price of the electric car is closer to a conventional vehicle, but also removes the uncertainty of battery durability and replacement cost."

Mini world rally debut It was the worst kept secret in rallying. Would Mini, a brand steeped in history - Paddy Hopkirk, anyone? - and rejuvenated by BMW, return to the world stage? After three days pounding around Sardinia it's clear that Mini is most definitely back. It wasn't the smoothest of experiences for the team but, as any watcher of motorsport will tell you, rallying is not a forgiving sport. Still, stages were completed, impressions made and the seeds of an even bigger Mini adventure have been sown. There's no sign of money being spent recklessly, though. The car - what else but a Countryman - has thousands of miles of testing under its belt. Expectations were high ahead of its Sardinian debut, however only six of the 2011 championship's 13 rounds will be contested. The team is focused more on 2012 and 2013, and targeting event and championship-wining pace respectively. No pressure on the drivers, then. Brit Kris Meeke will be a name familiar to anyone who followed Peugeot's fortunes in the Intercontinental Rally Challenge (IRC), while Dani Sordo was most recently number two at Citroen alongside world champion Sebastian Loeb. That's the team sorted, the car sorted, and the drivers sorted. So, what about the rally? Like football it was a game of two halves; Dani finished and Kris didn't - not for the want of trying, though. Despite the testing, throttle

Technology to cut road works disruption

140

A joint ÂŁ1 million fund to research and develop new technology to reduce the disruption caused by road works has been announced by the Transport Secretary Philip Hammond and the Mayor of London Boris Johnson. The money will fund an 18-month project by the Transport Research Laboratory to examine innovative engineering techniques which could see utilities use temporary road surfacing methods and fast-setting replacement road surfaces. This would allow utility companies to carry out more work at quieter times and re-open roads during peak traffic periods to reduce delays and disruption. Funding will be provided equally by the Department for Transport and Transport for London. "Everyone knows how frustrating the delays caused by road works can be, which is why we want utilities and local authorities to be able to make the most of the technology available to help keep disruption to a minimum," said Philip Hammond. "This project will investigate how innovative engineering can provide greater flexibility and

allow more road works to be carried out at times when the travelling public will be least inconvenienced," he added. It has also been confirmed that work is progressing at the DfT on drafting regulations for a lane rental scheme which would incentivise utilities and other companies to carry out road works during the less busy periods of the day. If approved regulations could be in place by the end of the year.

problems curtailed Meeke's run early on day one. As per the rules, he restated on the Saturday but more problems forced him out and it was decided on Sunday not to run but concentrate on preserving the car and fixing the issues for the next out outing That's the harsh reality of rallying. All things considered, Meeke remained in good spirits even if the time spent behind the wheel was minimal. He proved that the car was quick, something Prodrive has been quietly confident about since the start. From posting seventh fastest time on the event's first stage, Meeke went third fastest on the second test. His grasp of overall fourth place was brief, as mechanical issues halted his progress. It was a similar story on day two, but Meeke's efforts have surprised and encouraged in equal measure. Sordo netted sixth place, which is an impressive achievement, and secured the team's first finish of the season. His measured approach ensured success; while Citroen's Petter Solberg and Ford's Mikko Hirvonen were flat out battling for second place, he got the job done. Reflecting after the event, Meeke commented: "We said before the rally we wanted to see the speed of the car and we showed we have entered at a very good level in terms of speed. I have had a minor technical glitch and it appeared on both days and we didn't want to take the risk running again today. Everyone is very positive so we just have to take it from here and go forward." It's early days; nobody was expecting event-winning pace out of the box, yet the cars have proven fast enough to challenge for top positions. It's a view shared by team principal David Richards: "I think we have shown the performance of the car. We have proved what we can do and I think it has set the mark and set the standard. I wish Kris could have carried on the way he was in the early stages. "If he had carried on like that I think we would have been in a very strong position, but that is life, this is testing and we are learning as we go along. All signs are really encouraging and we have no real reliability problems at all that we are concerned about. We have to take a lot of positives from the event." Loeb might have won in Sardinia, his 64th career win, but as Mini continues to improve Citroen and Ford can expect to work harder for those podium positions. And with Volkswagen announcing entering in 2013 with the Polo, the championship is shaping up to deliver excitement and drama in spades. 2011 Rally Italia Sardinia results - top 61. S.

liz lean Summer evenings

House columnist and local PR guru Liz Lean talks about making the most of your spare time How are you spending your late, light evenings now that the Solstice month of June is upon us? I’d like to say that I’m using them wisely, running on the beach every night after work, and that my fitness levels have reached an all-time high… sadly I have some way to go and my body is in such a state of shock from attempting any activity at all that I’ve ended up on the sports massage table at least once. I am proud of the fact that I was never one of those screaming women in child birth – both times I managed to keep a lid on it for the sanity of those around me and sucked the living daylights out of the gas and air instead. But sports massages are something else; the pain the lovely petite Elle at Lilliput Health manages to inflict on me is an experience I’d never thought possible. I really wish they’d sound proof her torture chamber – sorry – treatment room, the local residents must wonder what on earth goes on in there! Apparently my ‘core’ is somewhat lacking and I have to focus all my attention on getting that stronger before I can attempt the impressive stuff...how boring. I blame it all on my second – 10lb 8oz – baby. The midwife laughed her socks off when she put him on the scales; it was like watching an episode of Countdown! It wasn’t that surprising…in terms of ‘House’, I was the size of a Sandbanks one. In all honesty, I’d rather spend the long balmy evenings experiencing some decadent pampering rather than huffing and puffing up hills looking like a roasted tomato. A little birdy has told us that the stunning Haven Hotel at the end of the Peninsula is making improvements to its leisure facilities with funky new poolside furniture, the introduction of a full programme of wellness and holistic treatments and an overall rebrand under the new name of ‘Harmony at The Haven’. Fully deserving of my ‘blatant plug of the month’ there will be nothing like it in the region and, with direct access to the beach, it will soon be less expensive than parking in Sandbanks car park! A limited number of revamped annual memberships are up for grabs as well as day passes; it’s just what the doctor ordered. It all re-opens next month and I personally can’t wait to book my daybed. In the meantime, I am looking forward to my forthcoming birthday – I feel lucky that my birthday happens to be the longest day of the year, June 21st (it explains a lot having the Summer Solstice as my date of birth; being a Gemini on the cusp with Cancer I have it all going on). This year I shall be celebrating it with friends from London who I haven’t seen for 13 years. We are back in touch thanks to the latest TK Maxx TV ad campaign where Sophia, their fashion buyer, is filmed jet setting to Milan. Spotting her familiar face on the TV and undertaking some online research to find her and lovely partner Peter, has culminated in their visit to us at the seaside. It’s going to be exciting to show them around our lovely area. Well, I’m really enjoying putting pen to paper each month for ‘House’, but I have no idea whether anyone actually reads, or remotely likes these ramblings? Please give us feedback via our Facebook group and Twitter search for Liz Lean PR and tell us what you’d like to hear about; from the sublime to the ridiculous, light hearted or serious subjects alike. I’m also keen to discuss any local news and issues which interest readers; what goes on in and around the area that pleases you or on the flip side, makes you furious? Maybe it’s something we can debate in a future column. All good PR and communication should be two-way, so go on, get in touch. ‘Til the next time, set your inner druid free and celebrate the Solstice (and my birthday) by making the most of these sumptuously long evenings. Bests, Liz

Let them entertain you â&#x20AC;&#x201C;

The nation's favourite boy band hit the road with their Progress tour last month. Andy Welch catches up with Take That to find out how they plan to top their last epic live show, the reaction to their most recent album, future plans and, of course, what it's like having Robbie back in the band. 142

Take That's forthcoming tour is something of a big deal. Actually, that doesn't quite do justice to Progress Live. The quintet's 27-show trip around the UK is a phenomenally enormous deal. Their schedule includes eight nights at the City Of Manchester Stadium, and there is no other band in the country, if not the world, that could fill a 60,000-capacity venue for more than a week as part of a tour. Then take into account that

all 1.34 million tickets for the tour sold out within a day - the boys had to add 11 shows as soon as phone lines opened to keep up with demand - and the achievement seems even more impressive. Gary, Mark, Howard, Jason and Robbie could probably have added 11 more nights and still not satisfied all the people who want to see them perform this summer. The sheer scale of what's ahead of the Fab Five in the next few weeks isn't lost on the band.


Today, they're taking a break from rehearsals and tour preparations for a few interviews, but even between their appointments there are items to approve, posters to sign and other assorted tourrelated duties to carry out. Gary Barlow and Mark Owen have been nominated as the main talkers, with Howard, Jason and Robbie busying themselves with other tasks in the background. "It's all coming together now," says Owen, looking very much like a man who's glad to be grabbing a quick cup of tea and a sit-down. "If you'd have asked three weeks ago, I wouldn't have been so sure, but it's really coming together now. I feel like we're in a really good place." Barlow adds: "The idea of actually going on tour is really exciting. But there's always so much to do, so there is a worry. I'm not really excited until we're done and ready. I might not get that feeling until the first or second night, as late as that." One of the reasons for their slight apprehension stems from the success of their last tour, not to mention its unprecedented scale. "That's just it," says Owen. "How are we going to top the last one? That was the first question we had to ask when planning the Progress tour. "The first and most important thing we did was to get the songs sorted and build the show around that. When you look at the songs we're going to play, even if we go up there and do nothing but stand and sing, there are some great songs. "We have a lot of confidence in the set list we've built over 20 years. But us being us, we can't just go up and do that, we have to think, 'We could sing the song, but we could also do it while flying out of a plane. Come on!' "Rob's had to come in and do things he hasn't done for 10 years or so, and be part of a group," says Owen. "It's a whole new thing for him, but seeing how well he's adjusted to it is great. There was a feeling like, 'What if he doesn't want to put clown make-up on while he's singing' or 'How's it going to work with all of us?' but he's definitely part of the band in the truest sense. "In fact, we have to hold him back now - he wants to put makeup on during every song!" If you watched fly-on-the-wall documentary Look Back Don't Stare last year, you'll have seen how the reunion came about and recording sessions for Progress

took shape. "Now and again I'd catch myself looking over my shoulder thinking, 'Oh, we're back, all of us' and I'd laugh inside. I can't believe it. I keep getting this warm feeling." Indeed, the mood at Take That HQ is positive and upbeat. Everyone looks gym-toned, primed and ready. Both Owen and Barlow talk about how happy they are that Williams has returned to the fold, saying it was the intention all along. "Rob's return has been so well accepted by the fans," says Barlow. "Even when we came back in 2005, the goal was to get us all back together eventually, but the fact that's actually worked out that way is incredible. "I think it's lovely because it gives everyone a platform now to do whatever they want. I think for us, as well, it's about getting people used to the fact that this band will always change. The band might be one of those things we can all do and toy with and come back to whenever we want. We want to keep things interesting. Too many bands go stale and people leave because of that. "I want to make sure this is an environment where people can come and go as they want. When anyone feels like they want to create something good, we can all get in a room and do it."

Extra time â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Take That Half of the stage the band will use on their upcoming tour was made in the USA, while the other half was made in the UK. Neither of the firms could manage to make the whole thing. Take That, combined with the solo sales of Robbie Williams, have sold more than 80 million albums. They've had 14 number one albums, 18 number one singles, played to more than 14.5 million people live, won 20 Brit Awards, eight MTV awards and five Ivor Novellos. Progress was released in November 2010, and it is the fastest-selling album of the century. Pet Shop Boys will be supporting on Progress Live. Williams says: "I'm a huge fan so for me it will be an absolute joy to be able to watch them every night."

More than just holidays Quay Holidays explain why they stand out from the rest

It all started eight years ago. Husband and wife, Duncan and Helen Challis decided to make the move to live and work on the sunny south coast, relocating from London and leaving the long daily commute behind. At the time they were renting out their second-home, a self-catering holiday apartment in the sought-after Dolphin Quays development in Poole. Duncan and Helen weren’t particularly enamoured with how it was being managed and decided to do it themselves… and so the story began. With the couple’s background in property management to draw on, the pair set about putting a plan into action for renting out their apartment. It wasn’t long before other owners in the building noticed how popular the service was and were soon stopping Helen in the hallway, asking whether she would mind taking on their properties too. The couple realised that a lot of local agents were offering a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to letting holiday properties. They saw a gap in the market for the management of top quality, self-catering luxury apartments and felt that no-one was offering a comprehensive service geared to the expectations of more discerning clients. As a result, Helen set up Quay Holidays from her dining room table. From modest beginnings, it wasn’t long before Quay was taking its first premises in Poole High Street.

The Quay vision

148

Quay offers luxurious south coast hideaways for people seeking four and five star places to stay. Over the past five years, Duncan and Helen have successfully grown the Company, which has fast become Poole Town’s largest high-quality accommodation provider with 275 bed spaces in its portfolio set in some of the most stunning locations – from modern

Poole Quay apartments to character coastal cottages. The couple’s vision was to offer a truly ‘onestop-shop’ for residential investors and second home owners and wanted to take away the stress and hassle of letting for landlords. Duncan and Helen pride themselves on their attention to detail and the team is dedicated to offering a comprehensive service, whether it’s arranging fresh white linen, offering a complimentary bottle of wine in a welcome basket for a couple’s romantic getaway, or managing the nitty-gritty involved with tenancy agreements and organising regular inspections of properties to protect landlords’ investments.

Key move for Quay Lots of returning visitors started telling the Quay team how they’d love to buy a holiday home in the area and the Company began to match aspiring buyers with vendors, expanding from its holiday letting roots, and adding longer-lets and sales to its increasing list of services. Relationships built-up with major local businesses also resulted in Quay becoming a major provider of serviced accommodation to employees and consultants coming to work in the area. This year, the company introduced sister brand Quay Living to reflect this fully comprehensive service and moved into new purpose-built, high-profile offices, situated in the luxurious Orchard Plaza development, in Poole High Street, just off Poole Quay. Far from the days of Duncan and Helen’s London commute, the couple’s journey to work is now little more than a three minute walk, although their working day is just as busy!


Meet the owners

Helen Challis - Partner Helen’s first job was working with the National Roofing Federation (although she didn’t have to get up on any roofs herself!). Following this she took a three month trek around South America and on her return joined the Mitsubishi Corporation. She moved into the property industry in 1993 and worked for an estate agent before going on to help future husband and his two business partners set up a company called Burleigh Estates Plc in 1996. Two years later, Helen joined a wealth management company, managing a growing portfolio of commercial and residential properties in London. When Helen left in 2002 to start a family, the company had to employ two new people to take on her work load! Helen and husband Duncan moved to Poole in 2003. Interesting fact – Helen used her previous experience restoring Georgian offices to organise the restoration of the couple’s Georgian Merchant’s House in Poole Old Town - the project took five years to complete but became a labour of love.

Duncan Challis - Partner Duncan has always been in property. He graduated with an honours degree in Urban Land Economics from Sheffield University and moved to London to join an asset-management company, acquiring and managing commercial properties all over the UK. He qualified as a Chartered Surveyor in 1990 and after three years, moved to a second acquisition and asset-management role, this time with a public company. In 1996, he left to form Burleigh Estates Plc, developing restaurant and pub sites for major tenants including Wetherspoon’s and Café Rouge. Burleigh Estates went on to build up a portfolio of leisure assets from drive-thru’s,

casino, sports bar, nightclub and a number of apartments which were converted from buildings as diverse as medical and exam board offices. Duncan even developed Posh and Becks’ favourite pizza restaurant, when he created an Est Est Est restaurant from a Volvo service centre in Cheshire. Interesting fact – Duncan loves jazz music and plays the piano and clarinet - until his family tells him to stop! He would love to spend more time boating and bird watching, but ‘dad-duty’ calls and his 9-year old daughter’s passion for horse riding sees him take on the role of taxi driver and dedicated horse groomer most weekends.

Quay Holidays / Quay Living Orchard Plaza, 41 High Street, Poole, Dorset, BH15 1EG

Have all the right facilities Self-contained letting properties should be just that. It’s important to think about what facilities are provided. Quay can help create an inventory list to work through for serviced and corporate lets, to ensure nothing is forgotten.

Obtain professional advice It’s vital to understand the legalities and obligations involved in the letting or sale of a property, so top-quality advice is a must. It is also vital to ensure that managing agents do just that – through careful vetting of prospective tenants and regular inspections to protect the landlord’s investment.

Marketing Make sure your prospective agent will be marketing your property in the most appropriate locations. E-marketing is now pre-eminent – make sure your agent will advertise your property on all the major websites.

Price it right There are signs of a long-awaited upswing in the sales market, but it is important to ensure that your pricing is realistic. Too high, and the impetus of being ‘new to market’ will be lost. The team at Quay take considerable care to consider the comparable evidence before advising on price, using their intimate knowledge of a wide range of local properties to give vendors the best chance of a successful sale.

ANGELA SIMMONS FROM STUDIO FIFTY SIX ANSWERS SOME SALON FAQ’s Advice on maintaining your hair through the summer months

Treat your hair this summer

At this time of year we get asked for a lot of advice on summer hair. The main problems generally relate to condition and colour. I’ve noticed I’m losing a lot of hair recently – it seems to be more fragile and is getting much thinner. Why is this and what can I do about it? Sara, Bournemouth With 74% of women and 50% of men claiming this to be a problem, we asked Studio Fifty Six REDKEN scalp specialist Chris Chevers his advice. There are many reasons for thinning hair, one can be hormonal and too much testosterone (particularly in women) is a common cause as this is converted into the enzyme DHT which prevents nutrients getting to the hair follicle and allows collagen to build up around the hair bulb, preventing it taking anchorage at the root. Our levels of testosterone can increase as a result of stress, either general or brought on by a specific event such as moving home, work pressure, marriage, separation or exams both yours or others in your family. Take some time to think about any changes to your lifestyle which may help, for instance avoid overly long hours at work, consider swapping some gym sessions for more gentle exercise such as yoga or brisk walking to relax and help you sleep which will encourage testosterone levels to fall. If you are particularly concerned it may be worth consulting an Endocrinologist who can check for any hormone imbalances. Many women lose hair after a pregnancy or when they stop breastfeeding, again this is hormonal and usually balances out within a few months Other causes of hair loss include an illness such as colds or flu, thyroid problems and medication (read the enclosed leaflet for side effects) which includes the contraceptive pill can play a part. Radical dieting is also a common cause of hair loss so should be avoided, a good balanced diet of vitamin B’s are essential for hair growth with plenty of fruit, vegetables and protein. It is worth checking out any unexplained hair loss with your GP or trichologist (Dr of hair and scalp) especially if you are noticing patches of hair loss (alopecia which is rare) or there is any irritation or inflammation Redken’s new product range INTRA FORCE with it’s unique formula’s containing patented Aminexil, Arginine & zinc PCA, which reduces the rate of hair loss, cleanses excess sebum from the scalp and invigorates the hair from root to tip, is guaranteed to give thicker, fuller looking hair or your money back. There are two state-of-the-art formulas, NATURAL THINNING HAIR and COLOR-TREATED THINNING HAIR enriched with UV filters and additional conditioners. Phone the salon and ask for a personal consultation with me and we can also discuss the best hair style for you, colour to give the correct depth and texture, and styling products to add volume to your hair style without weighing it down all. All of these will help to achieve thicker, healthier looking hair and give you back your confidence. Look forward to seeing you soon CHRIS.

Your fired â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I'm annoyed that you were allowed this far through the process

We were fired â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but we're not losers With business show The Apprentice back on our screen, some of the most memorable former contestants, including Ruth Badger and Stuart Baggs, reveal if they have any regrets about going on the show.

152


In The Apprentice, sometimes it's not the winning that counts. The potential for business acumen might impress Lord Sugar, but it's the large - and usually loud - personalities who get viewers sitting up on their sofas. That's why the names Ruth Badger, Tre Azam, Katie Hopkins and Stuart Baggs are more familiar than those of Simon Ambrose, Yasmina Siadatan or Michelle Dewberry. The latter may have won the show, but it's the former who stamped their individuality on the boardroom. So, with the seventh series in full flow - and with a new twist which means the winner will wind up as Lord Sugar's business partner rather than his apprentice - we find out what happened to those memorable contenders who got the bullet. Ruth Badger – Fired in series two Badger went head to head with Dewberry in the final of the second series - a face-off which was dubbed 'The Badger versus The Blonde'. Although The Blonde clinched victory, straight-talking, hard-selling Badger won the popularity contest. "I hope I was memorable in a good way," says Wolverhampton-born Badger, who had her own series on Sky and now runs three businesses. "I speak at about two events a week and people always say, 'You were fantastic last year' and I'm like, 'It was five years ago!' "I know I'm slimmer and better looking in life but..." she trails off, laughing. Far from regretting her time on the show, or feeling bitter about not winning, Badger claims going on The Apprentice was "the best thing I've ever done". She explains: "Doing the show taught me to push myself, to go out of my comfort zone. "I'd spent a big part of my career in financial services, and I'd got as far as I thought I was going to get to, and I was only 27, so it gave me a kick up the backside. "The moment I finished, I went straight into starting my own businesses and I've never looked back since." Katie Hopkins – Fired in series three Alpha-female Hopkins, who stunned the nation with her plummy acid tongue and faux girly demeanour, has only one regret about going on the show. Interestingly it's not insulting

northerners or walking away from the show after making the final. Rather, the Margaret Thatcherinspired businesswoman from Devon cringes about how her private life was dragged through the press after her infamous exit. She was accused of wrecking two marriages, and pictures emerged of her romping in a field with her now husband Mark Cross. "My one remaining regret is the media attention that swooped down on me," she says. "That was fine because if you put yourself out there then tough toots, you should take what you get - but my parents didn't put themselves out there and they didn't ask for any of it. "They're very private, quite shy but proud people and so that was unfortunate." Though she agrees she was cast as "the evil witch" in the third series, because of her ruthless ambition and cutting remarks about fellow contestants, she stands by her behaviour. "Certainly I'm a very direct person," she admits. "I have a Forces background, have worked largely with men and being direct has always worked best for me. I don't believe in hiding away from telling people what I think of them. There's very little time in business." Although she was fired from her job at the Met Office just after The Apprentice was aired, and she failed in her attempt to become a member of the European Parliament, Hopkins has cultivated a media career with appearances on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Here! and Question Time. She also runs her own consultancy firm. "I'm grateful to the show and for all it's given me," she says. Tre Azam– Fired in series three Azam, who appeared in the same series of The Apprentice as Hopkins, was on the winning team more times than anyone but will be remembered chiefly for his temper outbursts. Unlike Hopkins, he says he's learnt from his time on the show and that seeing the edited version of himself made him a lot more self-aware. "I realised I was more of a slave to my emotions than I thought," he says. "But I still have a temper on me, don't get me wrong! "The most important thing I learnt was the value of people. I'd always

been an entrepreneur and tried to do everything myself before The Apprentice, so when I left I'd learnt the value of people. "I learnt to delegate and that when you've got a good team behind you anything can be achieved. I also learnt that there's no limits, because the things we achieved in two days were amazing." He admits his business consultancy work was affected by the reputation he garnered on the show, but says he's managed to flourish with other ventures including selling a new computer gaming console, for which he says he's been flooded with orders. "I probably had a better credibility before I went on the show but you have to be prepared for the good, the bad and the ugly," he says. "There was some good that came from it and some bad - it's all about how you use it. I used it to the best of my advantage and it worked out all right." Stuart Baggs– Fired in series six Perhaps the most memorable contestant ever to have faced Lord Sugar in the boardroom was the 21-year-old communications executive from Plymouth who declared himself "a brand" in his own right. Baggs came out with ego-puffing phrases such as "Everything I touch turns to sold" and "I'm not a one-trick pony, I'm not a 10-trick pony, I'm a whole field of ponies - and they're literally all running towards this job". But his business tactics were often naive or underhand, once nearly getting him into a punchup with fellow contestant Chris Bates and causing Lord Sugar to say on firing him: "I don't believe a word you say. We got rid of Liz last week and that makes me sick. I'm annoyed that you were allowed this far through the process." If Baggs has any qualms about his time on the show, he's not showing them - in fact he's still declaring himself "The Brand" He says: "I could be on TV with Michael Jackson brought back from the dead and people will still think, 'There's Stuart Baggs The Brand on TV, oh and Michael Jackson'. I'm just that big." Baggs claims his business has not been damaged by his time on the show, and says he's also forged a bit of a media career

since leaving the show, with stints on TV and in magazines. He says: "Winning The Apprentice in terms of getting a job with Sir Alan is one thing, but I think you can win in more ways than one and I've won in terms of the exposure for my business. I've never had so many customers! "Admittedly 90% of the inquiries are time wasters but there are 10% who are serious." Baggs insists that going on The Apprentice will not harm a career or reputation and believes it's important to be memorable. "When I die I want to be remembered, I want to leave a mark on this world," he says. "On my gravestone it might say, 'That idiot from The Apprentice' but it will at least say something better than 'Johnny from a council house who had a pop at me on the Tube once'. I'd rather be remembered for something rather than nothing." Tune into The Apprentice at 9pm on Wednesday evenings on BBC1

Extra time — The Apprentice This year the prize will not be a job with Lord Sugar, but a start-up fund of £250,000 for a new business which will be owned jointly by Lord Sugar & the winner. Of the new challenge, Lord Sugar says: "I will be looking for a person with some expertise who can demonstrate they have a good understanding of all facets of business, so as to take this venture to another level." Advising Lord Sugar once again will be public relations consultant Nick Hewer, who has been on the show since it began, and sports executive Karren Brady, who took over from Margaret Mountford last year. Dara O'Briain will again be speaking to the losing candidates each week on spin-off show The Apprentice: You're Fired. 153

FIVE MINUTES WITH... FAY RIPLEY

Actress Fay Ripley discusses new culinary programme Perfect, her plans for a second cookery book and finding time for herself among the school runsFay Ripley has come along way since the Cold Feet days that propelled her into the limelight. Ripley has since released her award-winning recipe book, Fay’s Family Food, and alongside actor Mark Addy has become the face of Tesco’s various advertising campaigns. She’s now turning her hand to narrating a new cookery programme, Perfect. Perfect is new to Good Food, Monday to Wednesday at 7pm. So you’re searching for culinary perfection in the new show - what is that to you? For me, culinary perfection is when I look around the table and everyone’s eating my food with big smiles on their faces.

How did you get involved with the show? Well, I’m doing the voiceover. I think there’s a growing awareness of my love of food and the hardest thing about working on this show is the fact that while I’m doing the voiceover, all I want to do is write down these amazing tips and tricks of the trade. I really have to keep concentrating on my job but it’s exciting stuff because I think that, unlike some of the other shows around at the moment, the real star of this show is the food. Rather than it be about the competition and who’s going to get the trophy, this really is about the food.

How will the programme work? Basically, most of the best chefs from this country will cook next to each other and with each other and discuss the same dish. For instance, if it’s a roast, they’ll both do a roast beef and it’s how they approach that dish (that counts), so you get to pick up the tips of these two amazing chefs. The dialogue that happens between them - and the differences between their dishes - becomes the cookery school, as it were, so as a viewer you’re seeing these two amazing dishes coming to life. But basically each episode showcases six

different recipes and they include food that in some ways we already know; it’s not scary food. Anything you can take away from it is a bonus.

Who inspires you most when you’re cooking? Funnily enough, Bill Granger has done a couple of these. My husband is Australian and I discovered Bill in Australia before we knew about him in England. He’s one of my all-time heroes. His food is light and has that Asian influence and it’s fresh and clean food with simple flavours very cleverly thrown together. But this show is packed full of all of your favourite TV chefs

You’re very passionate about cooking but you have two children - where do you find the time? It’s a habit. This morning, I got two kids off on the school run but we still did pancakes. I think I’m pretty organised, so I do organise myself and run around like a headless chicken. I write lots of lists and I prioritise. I probably lose out on other things. My mum’s always telling me to just sit down and have a cup of tea, saying that she never sees me sitting down. So I probably miss out on that, but I gain so much more. For me, it means so much to me to bring the family together with the food that I cook that it’s worth missing out on a bit of down time, watching morning telly and having a cup of tea. I always say I’m really good at it for six days a week, but the other day of the week, I’m rubbish; I’m rubbish at being a wife, at being a mum, I’m rubbish at being an actress.

Your first cookery book was well received, any plans for a second? It was well received, I’ve just won the Mumsnet award for it. I’m very excited about that. There are plans - I’ve just signed for a second book deal. I’ll keep you posted. I’m literally cooking for it everyday now, I’ll shoot it in the summer and it will come out in April next year probably.

Which television roles are you most proud of? Cold Feet had such a big impact on my life that I’m so fond of it for that reason alone, aside from all the great memories. I loved that show. There are so many things I’ve loved. I did a show straight after Cold Feet called I Saw You in which I played a singer and my husband was in that. I think that was a time when I was loved up, I was going out with this gorgeous guy, we were acting together, I got to sing, got to go into music studios - it was amazing. Straight after filming he proposed to me and I look back and think, ‘Wow, that was an amazing year.’ The thing that I’m most proud of, though, if I’m totally honest? It’s not Cold Feet, it’s not the acting, it’s none of that... it’s my cookbook and that’s the truth.

What’s coming up for you then? The Tesco adverts keep me very busy. I’m writing the book, I write regularly for a food magazine and I’ve just come back from Liverpool where I was filming a gritty northern drama called Moving On. So there’s plenty to keep me busy, not to mention all the school runs! 155

wednesday 8 june, 10.35, itv1 Mugged sees BAFTA award winner Brian Hill take a fresh look at the most common street crime in Britain. Last year there were more than 1000 muggings a day and in this documentary film he uncovers the human stories behind the statistics, told from the point of view of victims and of muggers. The range of stories provide an unflinching look at the profound personal impact of mugging on people from all walks of life, with contributors’ testimony offering a vivid insight into the both the attacks and the full extent of the aftermath.

injustice

Mon 6 june – fri 10 june, 9 – 10pm, itv1

Injustice is a gripping five-part psychological thriller for ITV1 from acclaimed writer Anthony Horowitz (Collision, Foyle’s War). This event drama tackles the universal question which is at the heart of every country’s legal system. How does a defence barrister live with himself if he discovers the client he is defending is guilty? JAMES PUREFOY (Ironclad, Rome) is William Travers, a criminal barrister who is recovering from a traumatic series of events that have shaken his belief in the legal system. The 5 x 60 min drama was filmed in Suffolk and London and is produced by Anthony’s own production company, Injustice Films Limited. Purefoy stars alongside DERVLA KIRWAN (The Silence, 55 Degrees North), NATHANIEL PARKER (Stardust, The Inspector Lynley Mysteries), CHARLIE CREED - MILES (Harry Brown, Five Days) and OBI ABILI (Foyle’s War, The Take). On the surface William Travers (Purefoy) is a picture of success. Famous for defending the

And it’s only recently really that I’ve accepted the permanence,” explains Jane. “I have absent seizures a lot, where I find it really hard to communicate, and I have Jacksonian seizures sometimes, which is down my right side.” The film also features Paul, who bravely stepped in to help when he heard the cries of Jackie, a woman being mugged. The muggers turned on Paul and viciously attacked him – the force was so great that he later had to have a major lung operation to stop it from collapsing. Despite this, Paul doesn’t regret helping Jackie and she has very gratefully acknowledged him as her hero.

underdog. Underneath he is recovering from a nervous breakdown and the complete uprooting of his family and his work. Reluctantly, he is drawn into a case that involves his old friend Martin Newall (Parker) who faces conspiracy and murder charges while at the same time being investigated by a vicious and vengeful detective DS Mark Wenborn ( Creed - Miles). Injustice is a complex, nail-biting drama that takes the audience on a journey full of surprises until it reaches its devastating conclusion. ITV Director of Drama Commissioning, Laura Mackie said: “Anthony is such a talented screenwriter and the quality of his scripts has attracted top flight acting talent. We’re totally committed to original, authored drama and this commission is a brilliant addition to our slate for 2011” “I'm delighted to be working with ITV again after the success of Collision. Laura Mackie asked me to come up with a psychological thriller that would keep audiences guessing to the end and I hope that with Injustice I've done just that,” said executive producer and writer Anthony Horowitz.

Channel 4's comedy gala friday 10 june, 9pm, channel 4

Channel 4’s Comedy Gala in aid of Great Ormond St Hospital, returns for second year in a two and a half hour TV special. The amazing all star line up confirmed for the biggest annual comedy event of the year will include: Alan Carr, Andi Osho, Chris Moyles, Dara O Briain, Jack Dee, Jack Whitehall, Jo Brand, John Bishop, Jon Richardson, Jonathan Ross, Kevin Bridges, Lee Evans, Mark Watson, Michael McIntyre, Micky Flanagan, Rhod Gilbert, Rich Hall, Sarah Millican, Sean Lock & Shappi Khorsandi...

The nation's favourite gardener is set to bring his unique horticultural skills to ITV1 for the first time - in a new peak time gardening series. Love Your Garden - with Alan Titchmarsh (8x'30) follows the writer, broadcaster and TV personality as he travels the country with a team of esteemed experts to find some of Britain's most beautiful domestic gardens and show viewers how to recreate the look themselves with minimum fuss. Rather than sprawling country estates or celebrated public gardens, Alan will focus on the gardens of Britons who have turned their plots into magical outdoor living spaces. And even if you're not a gardener and have a tiny space, Alan will demonstrate how to make it magical too. From the traditional British garden to the cottage garden and the rose garden; each episode will focus on a type of garden many of us dream of. Alan will meet the passionate owner and learn the story of the garden's creation and the challenges of keeping it. He will also pick out the key qualities that make that garden special and reveal to viewers how to get the look themselves. Alan's team of experts will be on hand to demonstrate other ways in which the garden can be used. Food expert VALENTINE WARNER will explore the increasingly popular world of growing your own food; Garden designer MATT JAMES will

give advice on structure, from buying the right furniture to building the perfect water feature ; wildlife expert CHARLOTTE UHLENBROEK will meet the gardeners who are passionate about bringing wildlife to their garden and LAETITIA MAKLOUF will demonstrate how to transform the tiniest of spaces from elegant conservatories to beautiful windowboxes . Featuring the most beautiful domestic gardens in the country and celebrating the passionate people behind them, Love Your Garden will celebrate Britain as a nation of gardeners and inform and inspire us on how to redesign our own outdoor space. The garden that most of us see today - the classic suburban garden. But this humble patch can be more than a bare lawn with a few beds. Alan visits a garden that has been a labour of love for one woman and has become the envy of her neighbours. Alan shows viewers what's behind the dream suburban garden and how to get the look. Valentine Warner shows that a suburban environment can be a great source of food. In fact when it comes to bees, this type of garden can be an advantage. He learns how to build and keep a beehive in a suburban garden. The main challenge with wildlife in a suburban garden is encouraging different species whilst accomodating domestic animals such as cats and dogs. Charlotte Uhlenbrouk wants to encourage wildlife in her garden to work in harmony with the neighbours pets.

luther

A year after the death of estranged wife Zoe and best friend Ian Reed's betrayal, Luther remains tortured by the past, as the drama starring Idris Elba as the near-genius murder detective returns. While Alice bides her time in a psychiatric unit and Ripley languishes in uniform, Luther has been shut away with dusty files working on cold cases. His only solace exists in his newfound friendship with Mark North and their late-night chess games – forever bonded by the person that once divided them: Zoe. Former investigating officer Martin Schenk offers Luther a role in the new Serious and Serial Unit, and Luther accepts. He is determined to devote his energy to reinstating DS Justin Ripley

as a rising star in the police force and help those who he inadvertently hurt or compromised in the past, including Alice. The team, complete with the new addition of ambitious DS Erin Gray, is immediately faced with a surreal and nightmarish case. They must catch a man who hides behind a Punch mask as he brutally murders his victims. Luther quickly concludes that this man is obsessed with fairytale and mythology and is determined to enter into historical folklore himself by accomplishing one final devastating set piece. Idris Elba is DCI John Luther, Ruth Wilson is Alice Morgan, Warren Brown is DS Justin Ripley, Paul McGann is Mark North, Dermot Crowley is DCU Martin Schenk, Nikki Amuka-Bird is DS Erin Gray, Kierston Wareing is Caroline Jones and Aimee Ffion Edwards is Jenny Jones. This episode also stars Michael Smiley as DC Benny Silver.

children have got individuality you've succeeded, because that's what you want for them.” Janet and Graham Walton feared that they may never have kids, but after 13 courses of fertility treatment their daughters were conceived on what was to be their final attempt. As well as devoting her life to bringing up the girls, Janet has worked for the past 15 years as the principle fundraiser for the neo-natal unit at the maternity hospital where the girls were born. She says: “The job is for me really because every day when I’m in and out of the unit it reminds me of how lucky we were that the girls were all so fit and well.” Remembering the time shortly after the girls were born Graham says: “I got terrible stick off all my mates, particularly when we did the first documentary and they saw me changing nappies and feeding babies. [But] I wanted to be there, I felt quite proud, proud of myself for doing it.” The film reflects on Janet and Graham’s unique experience of raising six girls all the same age, and uncovers the very individual personalities of the sextuplets . At 27 they’re

now looking to the future. Two of the girls, Jennie and Luci, have moved out and live with their boyfriends, but return home regularly. Jennie is off to spend the summer working in Majorca and is considering moving there permanently in the future. One of the more outgoing sisters, she says: “When you've got five sisters if you don't speak you're not heard, so I tended to shout to get noticed. I had a lot of confidence from a young age.” Luci has recently got engaged – the first of the sisters to do so. She says: “I think I’ll need seven bridesmaids! I’d have all the others and my two best friends... I'd say now it's like best friends, more friends than sisters, we've been like that for a couple of years now.” Sarah is saving up to buy a house with her boyfriend of four years but says she doesn’t know what her parents will do when all of the girls have moved out: “I can’t imagine those two living in a little house on their own. I just don't think they'll like it because there wouldn't be the banter and wouldn't be something going on.” Ruth also has a boyfriend of seven years but is living at home to save money. She has refused to be filmed since her 18th birthday until now and says: “I don't really like the term ‘one of the Waltons’. Well no, I'm Ruth - we've got our own personalities, our own views and opinions we're not one person. We are 6 people, completely different.” In contrast, Kate is more shy and, while she loves living at home, she’s saving to buy her own place. She says: “[The others] would probably say I’m quite quiet cause I am. I’m quite a serious person but I’m trying to let my hair down now.” The final sister Hannah is the only one of the group who has been to university and she is currently training to be a primary school teacher. She says: “It’s a lot calmer when the others aren’t here because me and Kate are quite quiet, quite shy. And when you get Ruth and Luci together or Jennie and Ruth together… it is funny but they’re just more mischievous when Jennie’s home, getting into trouble!” All the girls are on the cusp of the next chapter of their lives and the programme follows them as they contemplate moving out, settling down and maybe starting families of their own.

The Walton Sextuplets: Moving On monday 13 june, 9pm, itv1

158

This new documentary follows one of Britain’s most extraordinary families. On 18 November 1983, Janet and Graham Walton made history, becoming parents to the world’s first surviving all female sextuplets. Their childhood was documented on film up to the age of 18, when they retired from the spotlight, and they haven’t been featured on television for almost a decade. This film explores how the girls have now grown into independent young women of 27, and the close bond that their family shares. The programme includes archive footage of the girls and an intimate look at their upbringing. It also features the family watching the old footage of themselves, their reactions to it and speaking about the memories that it evokes. Graham and Janet speak about the unique challenge of bringing up sextuplets and their parenting philosophy. Janet says: “I think if your


The Choir That Rocks thursday 16 june, 9pm, bbc one

In the first episode of this brand new three-part documentary series, Caroline Redman Lusher, Rock Choir founder, introduces the biggest contemporary Choir in Britain. With their wide repertoire of rock, pop and gospel music, Rock Choir is a choir for everyone - no auditions needed, just a lot of enthusiasm. In five months time Rock Choir is putting on its biggest performance ever. Caroline has booked Wembley and now has the immense challenge of filling the 10,500 seated arena!

Choir devotees Michael Childs, a plumber by day and Rock Choir Leader by night; teen star Rachael O’Brien who suffers from a lifethreatening heart condition; and Cliff Richard fan Brian Wilding, all reveal how Rock Choir has changed their lives. However, despite existing members’ clear dedication, new recruits are still needed and the cameras follow two new Rock Choir leaders Nik Slack and Stef Conner as they take on the challenge of starting two new choirs in Yorkshire. Handing out leaflets in the streets doesn’t seem to bring in the punters, so Caroline pulls in her crack squad of singers from Farnham, Surrey where she has the biggest and original Rock

the kennedys friday 17 june, 9pm, bbc two

Greg Kinnear, Katie Holmes, Tom Wilkinson and Barry Pepper star in The Kennedys, a tale of wealth, ambition, family loyalty and personal tragedy which begins on BBC Two with a double bill. Created by Joel Surnow and Stephen Kronish, the Emmy award-winning team behind the groundbreaking series 24, the eight-part miniseries vividly portrays the story of the most influential family in the world. The series recreates the political crisis that John F Kennedy dealt with in the early days of his presidency including the Bay of Pigs invasion, the Cuban Missile Crisis and the Civil Rights Movement. Every twist and turn of this dynamic family's extraordinary story is told up to and including the assassinations of JFK and Bobby Kennedy.

Choir group, founded when she started Rock Choir six years ago. Choir members including Chris and Issie Martin and Farnham Town Crier Jonathan Jones learn the moves to Dancing In The Street and, with 57 other eager members, they take the long trip to York. They carry out a flash mob in a designer shopping outlet whereby they appear to be members of the public but gradually start singing and dancing in time with each other, shocking the shoppers! Will the flash mob get new members to join the Yorkshire Choirs and will Caroline be able to fill Wembley Arena?

Fifty years since Jack Kennedy's inauguration as President, the story of the most fabled political family in American history still exerts a powerful fascination. Episode one begins on the eve of the 1960 Presidential election, when John F Kennedy is poised to become the youngest man ever elected to office. While he and a heavily pregnant Jackie are forefront in the media spotlight, behind the scenes, Kennedy family patriarch Joseph P Kennedy Sr, one of America's richest men, works furiously to ensure his son's victory over Richard Nixon. In Episode two, Congressman Jack Kennedy's progression to Washington appears unstoppable. However, Jacqueline's mother's prophecy that Jack will never be faithful seems true when, a year after their marriage, Jackie informs Joe that she's going to divorce Jack because of his infidelities. Joe Sr tries to solve the problem the only way he knows how...

Review Indi's Walking along Westbourne high street you can catch a waft of the gorgeous aromas oozing out of Indi's which sets your taste buds off and drawers you in. We entered to a very friendly welcome from the bar staff who kindly took our coats and showed us to our table. The restaurant was very busy, even for a Tuesday evening and the atmosphere was lively with lots of laughter and chat which we find an absolute must when dining out, as who wants to be sat in a dull lifeless restaurant? I know I don't. We were immediately offered poppadoms and with our drinks order taken we were left to ponder over what to pick from the extensive menu that seemed to cover almost every angle and as my guest was a vegetarian it catered for her perfectly with a plethora of meat free options and also many seafood and fish options that you would be hard up to find in a traditional Indian restaurant. This goes to show how forward thinking Indi's is, in that it has moved with the times, creating exciting and unique modern cuisine to cater for every guest that walks through their door. Once we had a look through the menu we had a few questions on some particular dishes and our host CJ was more than eager to answer our questions and helped me make my decision, being a lover of curry, I have a very sweat tooth and am particular about the heat of my dish as not wanting to scar my taste buds for life I was

160

Westbourne considering going for a signature dish of Indi's â&#x20AC;&#x161;the Garlic Chilli Chicken which had a couple of chilli pepper icons to represent the heat of each curry which helps guests gauge the heat of their curry - so I was a little wary of this factor so when mentioning to CJ â&#x20AC;&#x161;"is this hot" he gave me some advice, only someone who knew each dish like the back of his hand would know and ask what I would usually have then compared the Garlic Chilli Chicken to that and also mentioned that at Indi's the heat of a curry is not how hot the curry is, but it's about the spice of the dishes, having the correct blend that complement each other and doesn't overpower the pallet. It was reassuring to know our host knew what he was talking about. My Guest opted for the Curried sea bass which sounded gorgeous too. We also ordered some sag aloo, coconut rice and mango nan to accompany which I had never had before, I usually go for a peshwari nan but was recommended by CJ that the mango was that little bit more exciting and I wasn't disappointed, packed full of coconut with sliced mango dusted over the top it was the perfect side to match the garlic and chilli in the main dish. After devouring these mouthwatering dishes we were well and truly satisfied and if it was to have ended there we would have been more than content, then the sweat menu was popped under our noses and we got a second wind, decided it

would be rude not to and chose to sample a third course! In my experience, the desserts on offer in Indian & chinese restaurants are often ready made frozen things with no appeal what so ever, so when I didn't see the usual unimaginative boring deserts I was even more eager to try. We went for the chocolate puddling with some mango sorbet which we shared, really topping off a fantastic meal, packed full of gooey chocolate that ran out of the pudding when you dug into it & the sweet sorbet that really cleansed one's pallet. I was truly impressed with our visit to Indi's the service was outstanding not only to us but we could see around us that all diners where receiving this high level of attention to detail which made the overall atmosphere and dining experienced one of the best i've had in recent times, The pricing is very reasonable, a little higher than your standard indian restaurant but this isn't your standard restaurant. Indi's goes above and beyond to meet your needs and is the ideal place for a first date, group party or even a take away. By Marc Bubb
