How lucky have we been with the weather over the last few weeks? Incredibly lucky, I hear you say. With that in mind, we have put together a short guide to a few of our favourite places to escape to in the UK, making the most of the British sun as well as some impressive British scenery and I mean both the landscape as well as the accommodation. To see our firm favourites, visit page 65. Having stayed at the Sail Lofts myself recently, I can highly recommend them. Having a toddler and another one on the way, UK holidays suit me far better at the moment than the hustle and bustle and lack of home comforts that for me a holiday abroad entails. Speaking of children, we also have some lovely fashion ideas for the little ones in your life on page 138. Someone who hasn't graced the presence of

the media for some time is Fern Britton, so we are delighted to have her join the pages of HOUSE magazine. With a new figure, hair-do and style to suit, Fern is well and truly back on the circuit with a new TV show and book. To hear more from Fern check out page 134. To tell us what you think of Fern, our choice of the best spring breaks around or even to tell us about some of your suggestions, then all you need to do is email me on emma@emch.co.uk. Lastly, we'd like to thank Rose Duffy for her photography of the Jetty restaurant featured on last issue's cover, loving your work! Emma Harman Editor

NEW JOBS AT NEMOS ARE MORE THAN CHILD’S PLAY!

Top Ofsted rated nursery and preschool, Nemo’s, in Branksome has created another three new staffing positions taking the full-time staff numbers to 11. An increase of 50% in under a year! The nursery, which caters for children between 3-months and 5-years, has the capacity for 30 children in its delightful building within its Forest Road site. Claire Hartwell owner/proprietor said: “We now have 11 full-time staff including our two new recruits, and are still actively searching for a third. We are expanding to capacity so rapidly and with the introduction of some of our new activities for the children this year, the three new jobs are essential. We are delighted with the new members of the team who have already settled in so well – the children love them!” Nemo’s achieved the highest

comparable rating of its kind in its first Ofsted Report last October, recognition which has increased attendance by 30% since its publication. Nemo’s which has just three spaces left in the baby unit and four in the pre-school is still looking for one new staff member, qualified to a minimum NVQ3 standard, for its under-two’s floor.

Royal Bath net 11 awards at Hotel & Catering Show 2011 As the South coast’s No.1 Hospitality Trade Fair held at the BIC it was a great platform for the Royal Bath Hotels culinary team to compete and demonstrate their fantastic award winning skills. The Royal Bath team was headed up by Head Chef David Whiffen who didn’t disappoint; he led his team and set the precedent by acclaiming a gold best in class and also winning the Best senior award. Paul Spencer (General Manager of Royal Bath) was equally as proud as David of the team saying “It was a great positive atmosphere and so exciting to be a part of it, especially to see some of the team deliver so incredibly especially as some of them have never had the opportunity to compete in such an event, I felt we had a real presence at the competition and can’t wait for next year!” These accolades are to

be celebrated and the Hotel and Catering show has been such a superb platform to showcase the Royal Bath Hotel's skills and food and put them back on the map as a leading dining establishment on the south coast.

Goadsby Westbourne are proud to announce that they have provisionally let over a staggering 15 properties in the last 4 weeks. They urgently require more properties to offer their eager applicants. Lettings assistant manager, Cherelle Orchard comments, “We are finding that as soon as

properties are coming to the rental market, they are being snapped up. This is ensuring a quick turnover between tenancies for landlords and often with a price increase; meaning our landlords are kept happy”. If you are considering renting your property, please call Cherelle or Lara on 01202 767610

Update your home style —

Key looks for your home this Spring... If you’re looking for home decorating ideas this year, simply rustle through your wardrobe. Chances are you’ve already picked up on some of the most fashionable looks and colours - whether that’s colour blocking, blues, sorbet shades or florals - and those trends are being echoed in our rooms.

These days, where those couture catwalks lead, our homes will surely follow, but there’s no need to slavishly reflect those new looks. Even dedicated decoristas are more likely to opt for a ‘make it work’ approach rather than full-on ‘makeover’ as we’ve all got budgets to consider.

So simply be inspired by the latest looks, then decorate and furnish to suit your personality, lifestyle and purse. Home design experts from leading high street stores forecast the trends and share their tips on creating the latest looks for rooms >

23


Get bold & bright Colour will banish the dull days of winter and it's being used in dramatic splashes in both florals and abstract patterns, says Sue Roberts, head of home design at House of Fraser. "We're tired of doom and gloom and are looking for a more positive outlook and rediscovering our sense of humour," she says. "That's making us all more creative and there's a real trend for bold brights or blocks of colour which add fun into our homes." Get the look: Layering is a great way to freshen a room without breaking the bank, she advises. "Use throws and rugs, as well as fabrics, for blinds, curtains or upholstery echoing your theme. "If too much pattern makes you nervous, experiment by featuring it on cushions and bedding, and introduce more colour on table settings with charger plates, placemats and coloured glassware.” Best buys: Rose stripe cushion £30, Long velvet cushion £35, Chartreuse small square cushion £20, Plum chiffon cushion £ 30, Pink small square cushion £20, Chartreuse round cushion £25, ‘Olivia’ glass table lamp £85, Small diamante vase £25, ‘Maxine’ mirrored display cube £339, ‘Touch me’ rug £399, All House of Fraser >

Go overboard Get shipshape with coastal chic or bring the outdoors in with florals, says Sally Bendelow, head of home design at Marks & Spencer. “There’s a desire to make a statement in rooms with key pieces which don’t break the bank but have impact,” she says. Florals never go out of fashion, she believes, but this year they’re being interpreted in a softer, less dominating way, and they also work well with pastel shades which are gaining ground. Bendelow believes coastal’s appeal endures as it’s a fresh, informal look which can be dressed up or down. Get the look: “Make it smart and chic by contrasting whites with deep blues and having painted furniture, or opt for a more ‘beach hut’ look with natural wood, bleached cottons and soft blue accessories,” she advises. “An easy way to adopt this style is with blue and white bedding as the shades are ideal to create a calm atmosphere.”

< Best buys: Penrose sofa, £499; Whitley love seat, £499; Fashion vintage print curtains, from £49.50; Fashion vintage rug, from £59 and cushions from £15, Marks & Spencer


Industrial chic Functional furniture, vintage style and a strong neutral palette combine in the up-and-coming trend for ‘industrial’ style, says Claire Hornby, creative stylist for Barker & Stonehouse. “The industrial chic look links in nicely with the recent trend for period pieces and early 20th century styling, so have fun choosing traditional items which will never date, and basing your look around them,” she says. “Industrial doesn’t have to mean shiny chrome and minimalism, the new way to do this chic style is an altogether subtler and more sensual experience. It’s all about rustic and timeless.” Get the look: The look is achieved by mixing natural materials, so combine distressed leather with rustic wooden pieces for a practical but sophisticated result. “Soften this look with cushions in complimentary fabrics and colours,” says Hornby. “But if you accessorise, ensure pieces are functional with nothing purely decorative on display.” Best buys: Earlston Opio rustic dining table, £1,245, in bleached old pine with natural grain and knots; Benjamin Chest, £1,645, and Hugo Desk, £1,185. All Barker & Stonehouse www. barkerandstonehouse.co.uk >

Sorbet style Be inspired by soft pastels and stripes for a look that sums up summer, says Suzanne Beechey, homeware buying manager at Bhs. “Homes are no longer simply properties, they are individual spaces whose style should express your personality and taste,” she says. “There’s a trend for soft, sorbet shades and an effortless easy-to-live-with approach which conjures a cool, serene and sophisticated setting.” Get the look: “Take inspiration from Miami summer nights,” advises Beechey. “Decorate and accessorise with soft pinks, muted lilacs and mint greens which pair well with contemporary furniture in soft greys and chalky whites. Keeping this look minimal with clean edges is key.” < Best buys: Hot buys from Bhs are the Sorbet buttoned sofa, £999, and Sorbet striped bedding, from £22.50.

Wide blue yonder Nothing beats blue this year and fashion’s passion for every hue from sky to turquoise is being echoed in the home, says Gillian Anderson, trading director at Heal’s. “There’s a renewed sense of optimism as we, hopefully, start a postrecession period and people want cheerful colour messages,” she says. “From deep and mysterious navy and teal to bright and crystal clear turquoise, blue is set to take us in a new colour direction. Turquoise is creating the biggest splash on interior decor this spring, closely followed by light blue.” Get the look: Sea and sky inspired hues pair well with pristine white and traditional oak, and can be contrasted with statement pieces in indigo, which is the ‘new black’, says Anderson. “It’s all about creating understated luxury and rich peacock blues can add depth to a scheme.” Best buys: Rimini ceramics, from £41, Heal's >

Home & away Celebrate the culture of far away lands or look to the seaside for decor design, says Mockie Harrison, head of home design at John Lewis. “Tribal’s also a key look and we’re celebrating the nomadic culture of distant lands with strong, colliding patterns, dark woods and high energy prints,” she says. “Coastal’s a classic summer theme making use of nostalgic imagery and natural materials. It instantly evokes happy memories, thoughts of holidays, and conjures a restful atmosphere.” Get the look: For tribal she advises using a mix of materials, such as wood, glass and fabrics featuring dynamic patterns and motifs. For a ‘by-the-sea’ look, opt for deckchair stripe fabrics on upholstery and rugs, pale wood furniture and coastal accessories. Pick up blues in lighting and cushions.

The durable fabric is dirt and moisture repellent and can easily be wiped clean with lukewarm water and neutral soap. £339, All Up and On, www.allupandon.co.uk, 01462 349060

Willy Wonka's White Chair

We adore this rather kooky but also rather glamorous chair! From the expanse of simply delicious white faux leather, to its throne-like proportions, porter's chair winged sides, diamante buttoning, chrome studding on the outer edges of the chair, solid elegant chrome feet... the list goes on and on! Perhaps it is time for the upgrade on that tired armchair in the corner of your bedroom or living room? Love, love, love it!! £855, French Bedroom Company, 08456 448022 www.frenchbedroomcompany.co.uk

Cardboard Stool Signale

This funky cardboard stool was created by Stefanie Keppler and Ingo Fremer, founders of a German design studio, Remember. It assembles easily and quickly, you can sit on it, invite friends, have fun, party, chat, discuss, laugh, eat, etc.! The stool is also suitable as a occasional table, a side table or just a simple table. And to save space just disassemble it after use. 48

Spring Breakâ&#x20AC;&#x201C; With the weather beginning to take a turn for the better, thoughts often move to getting away from all the stresses and strains of everyday life. Holidaying abroad has plenty to offer, but we think that the UK has an abundent supply of fabulous scenery, adventures and places to stay but minus the time consuming, argumentprovoking airport experience! Here is a selection of our firm favourites.

St Ives, Cornwall

65


The Sail Lofts

St Ives, Cornwall

For those lucky enough to live there, it’s no surprise that St Ives has been hailed Cornwall’s Best Family Holiday Destination and Best Seaside Town by Coast Magazine and the Guardian newspaper. Facing the Atlantic on the North West coast of Cornwall and warmed by the Gulf Stream, the region’s climate is among the mildest in the UK, making it ideal for breaks in or out of season. Thousands of visitors flock here each year to enjoy our thriving arts scene, great restaurants, clean and beautiful beaches – but you never have to venture far to find peace and solitude in the quiet coves and lush countryside surrounding the town. Whether you’re sipping evening drinks at a beachside café as the sun goes down, sampling seafood delights at one of the fantastic harbourside restaurants, stretching out on one of our four pristine beaches or inspiring your creative side at Tate St Ives, your memories of St Ives are likely to stay with you forever. The Sail Lofts boutique apartments are situated just a stone’s throw from the beach and offerluxury, unique award winning accommodation. Enlisting the help of awardwinning interior designer, Joseph Valenzisi, the owners of the Sail lofts renovated and refurbished the buildings to create twelve stunning apartments, each with its own unique character, with the finest fittings and furnishings throughout. Leading landscape architects ‘Mor’ designed and developed the inner courtyard to create a peaceful haven brimming with subtropical plants. www.thesaillofts.co.uk Tel. 01736 799175

Things to do: Surf in the Atlantic ocean of Porthmeor beach, pull on your walking boots to discover the rugged cliffs, pale gold crescents of sand, quiet coves and lush greenery that the coastal paths in St Ives have to offer, visit the Tate gallery, or just relax, put your feet up and enjoy the plentiful restaurants in the harbour.

Crocodile Rocks

Elie and Earlsferry, Scotland

Crocodile Rocks is a luxurious Victorian holiday beach house with inspiring contemporary interiors, beautifully located in an idyllic unspoilt seaside village on the East coast of Scotland (just 12miles from St Andrews) Fresh and funky interiors coupled with immaculate design features ensure that this Victorian beach house is brought bang into the 21st Century. Bold artwork, contemporary furnishings, glass chandeliers and squidgy sofas all afford luxurious living in this otherwise traditional seaside setting. Indulge in the en-suite Master bedroom with sumptuous king-size bed, open fire and balcony with stunning sea views. Escape the hubbub by throwing open the French doors in the observatory library and taking in the panoramic views and blissful tranquillity of the Scottish seaside. Melt away your troubles in a deep bubble bath and enjoy breath-taking views from the stand-alone tub. www.crocodilerocks.uniquehomestays.com, Tel. 01637 881942

Things to do:

66

Sample as much or as little as you please of the 81-mile Fife Coastal Path; meandering along the coastline past unspoilt beaches, castle ruins and famous golf courses, it’s a great way to experience the natural beauty of Scotland. The nearby villages of St Monans, Pittenweem and Crail have become local arts and crafts centres. Definitely worth a visit is the Crail Pottery which is a family-run business which has been operating for more than 40years. There are numerous watersports available at Elie harbour, including windsurfing, sailing, pedalos, donuts and bananas!


The Sky Ranch

Trefeglwys, Wales

A recently converted 19th Century farm cottage offering complete isolation and luxury living for up to 8 guests. The style of this property is elemental: think floor to ceiling glass, chunky exposed lintels, warming stripped wood flooring and gorgeous Welsh stone. A stylish and comfortable homestay combined with more modern order. The one mile private drive approach to The Sky Ranch offers a dramatic wilderness taste of what is to follow. Step from the front door to the 360 degree breathtaking views of characterful moorlands, lush green forest and undulating mountains in the distance. Winding streams cut dramatically through the moors and lead right past the house, traditional stone walls keep the grazing sheep at bay. The spacious garden offers ample space to relax and absorb the vista, the built in stone seating area and the outside dining table are perfect for an al fresco brunch or candle lit dinner. With over 16,000 acres to explore you will have your weekend well and truly mapped out. www.theskyranch. uniquehomestays.com Tel. 01637 881942 Throw on your walking boots and discover the beautiful Hafren Forest. For the water lovers then try fishing on the River Severn or rowing on the Clwyedog Dam. For the more adventurous then cycling and downhill mountain biking, enduro and even a local rally school to tempt. Pony trekking in Rhayader or Aberhafesp, enjoy Wales on horseback! Take a day trip to the coast, beaches at Aberystwyth 40 mins away. To the North the beautiful Snowdonia stretches out in front of you.

Things to do:

The Reading Rooms margate

The Reading Rooms is a luxury boutique bed and breakfast in a recently restored, Grade II listed Georgian town house in Margate, England. The Reading Rooms was awarded the prestigious 5* Gold by Quality in Tourism. The house has three expansive guest rooms, each encompassing an entire floor of the house with windows overlooking a tree lined Georgian square. Situated in Hawley Square, Margateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finest Georgian square, The Reading Rooms is less than five minutes walk to the sea and to the historic Old Town cultural quarter. Margate, is one of Englandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first seaside resorts where 18th century tourists came to enjoy the newly fashionable health giving properties of seabathing. Famed for its beautiful, expansive beaches and historic architecture, as well being a pioneer of British seaside culture, Margate is enjoying the rennaissance of a major arts regeneration programme. This includes the construction of the Turner Contemporary art gallery by RIBA Stirling prizewinning architect David Chipperfield, the development of a heritage theme park at the Dreamland site and the active encouragement of artists to live, work and exhibit in the town. www.thereadingroomsmargate.co.uk Tel. 01843 225166

Things to do:

Enjoy the plentiful selection of restaurants and cafes, after an afternoon of pounding the streets that are blossoming with quality independent shops. It seems to have been gathering a name for itself in vintage and boutiques. Alternatively, there are several museums to indulge your cultural side or perhaps just a tranquil visit to the Kentish coast. 67

It’s been quite an eventful month really; we’ve had the first rays of spring sunshine (yay! How nice was that?), the Budget (yawn), Mothering Sunday (any excuse for any woman to milk it) and Comic Relief (well done to everyone, including my 11 year old, Leila, for raising much needed funds). Personally, this past month celebrity chef, James Martin, served me the most amazing steak I’ve ever had (OK, well sadly not just for me, but also for 200 others at the Bournemouth Hotel & Catering Show Dinner). The Liz Lean PR girls and myself dropped into the Print Room for some pancake flipping, under the guise of a “team meeting”, and we spotted TV hottie, Gary Lucy, outside the offices, pacing the pavements of Sandbanks on his mobile phone. Very exciting. Most notable was the incredibly funny and welcome big birthday celebration of Mr Andy Price (of Aruba, Print Room and Westbeach) – a 60’s themed affair, with groovy tunes supplied by Rob and the Jazz Juice crew. What a riot! Watching all the ‘great and good’ of the conurbation’s business community, council and high society grinding to the sounds in their flares, afro’s and other ridiculous get up was hilarious – happy birthday Andy, you threw a really great party! For my ‘blatant plug of the month’, I want to introduce you all to a beautiful boutique hair salon which has just opened in Ashley Cross, Poole – ‘Synergy on Parr Street’. The group’s third salon, this little beauty has a wonderful, young creative team led by Dan and Natalie and they’re keen to become a hub of activity for the Cross. The salon has a vintage and seriously chilled out feel, it’s easy to park and the famous ‘the dancing goat’ coffee shop is right next door so it really is now the best place to spot the area’s most glamorous yummy mummys! Working with St Peter’s church and others from Ashley Cross, they are hosting a Street Party to celebrate Kate and Will’s big day on the afternoon of the 29th April. We’ll be down there toasting the newlyweds and having a go with the kids at all their planned activities, come and join us. We’re looking forward to Easter and the excuse to eat mountains of chocolate, not ideal when the fitness routine is still being attempted, albeit ‘routine’ perhaps is not the best term to use.

Anyone seeing me trying to do crunches on the beach the morning after Andy Price’s bash might not have thought I’m taking it quite as seriously as I should be.

They hopefully mistook me for some fin- flapping dolphin washed up on the shoreline! It entertained my friend Sarah anyway. Ultimately, I’m trying my best but it’s hard, so I admire any fitness addicts out there with the discipline to make it a key part of their lives, it’s so important for stress busting and health overall. Whilst wishing you good health, I also hope you receive the Easter egg of your dreams (mine’s a simple Dairy Milk please). Enjoy the ‘Spring’ in your step! Until the next time…….. Bests, Liz

The hub of every modern home, the kitchen is no longer simply for cooking, but a focal point for all the family to share. Porcelanosa prides itself on helping to create beautiful and functional kitchens, whatever the size.  For smaller kitchens, simple additions such as a breakfast bar in the same material as the worktops can enable a cooking/preparation area as well as a sitting, social area.  For larger kitchens, introducing a sofa and/or a dining table can turn the kitchen into the perfect family living space.  Simple tricks such as using the same flooring through out the area keeps the room flow united and also create the sense of a larger space. Porcelanosa design functional bespoke kitchens to satisfy the most discerning customer.  Current trends include a focus on the use of new, innovative materials in the various component parts,  as well as adapting designs to storage and installation needs, with tower sections, overhead units and built-in electrical appliances. Porcelanosa design services include an overall interior design facility, with experienced designers. With our extensive experience of materials and manufactured products, we are confident in our ability to advise and select from products to meet the needs of all our clients.  From the moment a client walks through the door of our showroom, the process begins. From writing an intial brief to assiting with the installation, our designers are on hand to guide all our clients from the start to the completion. Many of us dream of a new designer kitchen but few know what is available, or what works best suits our specific needs.  From questions around ergonomics space to practical issues surrounding materials, our designers are on hand to help write that all important initial brief. Only when this is established can we really start to help our clients in the selection of appropriate products.

Planning a kitchen — or designing a kitchen? What makes us different from more conventional kitchen companies, is that we consider the dynamics of each of our client’s home, in order to design a space that really works. Instead of designing a typical kitchen to replace another, we analyze the space/ lifestyle, and even the aspirations of the users before providing design solutions to take into account the whole home interior. New kitchen designs are constantly being developed, yet older products also revive themselves over time.  Our designers will take into account materials and finishes available to them, design trends, lighting levels in the room and experience from identifying previous customer needs.  Our designers will also take into account what our client’s tastes in interior décoration and materials already used in their home. Materials available in our kitchen products range from basic durable laminate doors, veneers with a choice of two grain directions, matt or gloss lacquered doors, to glass fronted panels and Krion faced doors. All Porcelanosa Kitchens are made to order with quality, strength and durability in mind. Standard features include soft-closers on doors and drawers, 19mm thick carcasses available in 2 colours (plus colour coded carcasses on glazed units). Varying opening mechanisms are available including vertical lift wall hinges; co-planer opening tower unit doors; electronically controlled wall & tower unit doors. A wide choice of colours and finishes are available. Alternatively, a traditional door style can be ‘dressed down’ to incorporate a more contemporary, or simplistic style. Porcelonosa also offers a lower price range of kitchens. The Residence Range come with

Nogal

Verde Cedro Archilla with Krion Worktops


Advertisement feature 16mm carcass, but still offer a distinctive range of finishes created to meet lower budgets. Produced in shorter lead time, the Residence Range is particularly effective for developers who may want a lower cost with a high-quality branded product, for larger or multiply projects. New ranges from Porcelonosa include the ‘Krion’ fronted kitchen style, which feature the recently launched solid surface sheet material.  This material is hard, compact, and non-porous and has been developed with durability in mind.  The Krion can also be fabricated into seamless work-surfaces or bathroom furniture and shower trays plus more, bringing a broad array of coordinating products with the same properties throughout in the home. In the kitchen this material is hygienic with its antibacterial composition and resistance to chemical agents and heat/sunlight.  The mineral/acrylic resin/polyester content gives this material an ideal range of properties to create the kitchen appearance and functions that a modern kitchen needs. Key trends for Porcelanosa Kitchens use glass on wood for doors and the addition of ground-breaking synthetic materials such as Krion for the manufacture of doors, adding new doors thicknesses (25 mm) and automatic openings.  Laquers because they are clean and look brilliant. Synthetic materials, because they are hygienic. Stainless steel for durability and they look cool. As a counterbalance we find wood,  such as Ukola, brings contrast and warmth as well as style. The quality in the construction of the kitchen is paramount to us, as well as managing in-store to the highest of standards, with a very  personalised approach

to the customer who will most certainly be looking for exclusivity in all designs and materials. Consumers value kitchens that can be cleaned quickly and easily, are practical when used everyday, and with the help of automation to ease the workload.  What this does mean, is that the ‘classic kitchen’ is losing a little of its old romance, in favour of a more efficient version. Sustainability and green design or eco-design in the kitchen, Above all, in the manufacture, of our lacquered product, which are dried by UV rays, that contaminate much less. The cultivation and use of wood from reconstructed forests, which avoid the deforestation of virgin forests.  And in the distribution and planning of kitchens, the incorporation of elements that permit the ease for future domestic recycling.  In electrical/ domestic products, new technologies to obtain the highest energy efficiency levels with the incorporation of elements such as the “inverter” system for lower energy consumption. At Porcelanosa we want you to relax and enjoy your home.  We have a number of financial solutions and specially designed offers tailored to suit your needs. With a presence in almost 100 countries worldwide Porcelanosa produces beautifully crafted products and has an unique business model, which forms the foundation for its strong, dynamic corporate strategy.

DREAM HOME

Sirocco– Be part of an exclusive coastal community

116

Banner Homes is one of the country’s leading independent house builders. The business started in 1976 with the earliest developments being in and around High Wycombe. Since then it has grown to encompass three regional operational centres in the Northern Home Counties, the Southern Home Counties and the Midlands. The company has over thirty years experience and know-how when it comes to building outstanding developments, targeting the full spectrum of home buyers at prices ranging from under £100,000 up to in excess of £4m. Banner Homes has a passion for perfecting it’s homes and maximising the value for it’s purchasers. Every home it builds receives individual, professional attention from the moment it first appears on the drawing board, right through to its build completion and final clean. Sirocco forms part of a stylish and brand new development of just two luxury homes, tucked away in a private corner of prestigious Crichel Mount Road. This offers a rare opportunity to become part of an exclusive coastal community within walking distance of Poole Harbour and the famous Evening Hill view point. The striking Art Deco inspired design

features spacious living areas bathed in natural light, a large balcony to the master bedroom and an integral double garage. The well planned living accommodation is arranged over two floors but with split levels. The entrance hall features a stunning curved staircase and in addition to the generously proportioned kitchen family room there are informal and formal sitting areas, the latter with a high feature ceiling and beautiful wood floors. Naturally there is a study for those occasions when work must take priority over strolls by the harbour side or other beach side activities, but that is not to say that Sirocco is without it’s own leisure time attractions. Patio doors connect all the principal rooms to a very spacious private terrace at the rear of the house with it’s very own hot tub – ideal for relaxing in with friends or family on a Summer’s evening. Fixtures and fittings throughout Sirocco are of the highest standard and include a superb fitted kitchen with stone tops and a wealth of integrated appliances, bathroom suites by Villeroy and Boch, not to mention a luxurious blend of wood, tiled and soft floor coverings. The master suite is particularly impressive as

it is approached through double doors and boasts a large private balcony, ensuite bath and shower room as well as a walk-in wardrobe. Other creature comforts include concrete floors and under floor gas fired central heating, powder coated aluminium windows and walnut finish doors throughout. The long list of appointments also includes a state of the art integrated audio system which can be customised or expanded (at extra cost) to automate lighting amongst other things via touch panels or infra red remote controls! Sirocco offers family-sized accommodation of approaching 3000 sq ft but it would also make an ideal holiday home. It is presented as a stylish and fully furnished show home, available for immediate occupation.

Viewing is available strictly by appointment through the sole selling agent. Contact Mays on 01202 709888.

Spring Chickens

Children’s clothes this season are cute. Darn cute. Although don’t tell the kids that unless you like seeing your child rolling their eyes at you. Instead, take their mitt in your hand and take them round the shops, safe in the knowledge that there is little out there that you both won’t agree on. Take Next, for example, which has one of the most adorable dresses we’ve seen for a while – in fact, we wish this candy-sweet dress came in an adult size as it would be perfect for sunny afternoons with friends. For boys we particularly like the pink and green polo shirt, a good example of the bright colours available across the stores. Lovers of the acid bright trend this spring should take a peek at the Ladybird range at Very.co.uk – the yellow jumper is eye-wateringly fun, and matches Solillas's leather Balearic sandals (we also like the sky blue shoes from this great shoe company). River Island is achingly hip with funky jeans and checked shirt (and we wish we could spring into the new season as well as the model), while over at French Connection kids have a great, if slightly pricier, range of sophisticated threads to choose from – its Jewel dress is especially stunning. Debenhams is always a good bet for child-friendly wear that will appeal to parents too, and we defy any little girl to not love its pink and black striped prom-style dress, while boys will welcome the light trousers as a good alternative to the ubiquitous jeans, or perhaps the more casual combatstyle shorts from M&S. As usual, trends seen in adult's clothes are reflected in childrenswear, with florals being a favourite with designers this season. Primark has a lovely floral playsuit, while Matalan has the perfect dress and shoes for your flower-fairies. The ultimate item for your little princess though has to be something related to the royal wedding – yup, there is no escape from the wedding madness, although Tu at Sainsbury's Hello Kitty t-shirt complete with crown and Union Jack manages to avoid being tacky – we love it.

THE LATEST NEWS ON ALL THINGS MOTORING

Nissan begins deliveries of 100% electric Leaf

Order book open for radical Porsche 918 Following its show-stopping debut at Geneva in 2010, Porsche has confirmed final details of the limited edition 918 Spyder. Using a combination of a powerful V8 petrol engine and twin electric motors the 918 Spyder offers a combined power output of over 700bhp, with drive taken to all four wheels. The lightweight lithium-ion cell pack can be recharged through a mains supply as well as regenerative braking for increased range. The remarkable efficiency of the powertrain has resulted in a claimed

fuel consumption figure of 94mpg combined, with an equally-remarkable emissions figure of just 70g/km. Despite this it is nothing short of a true Porsche, with a top speed of over 199mph and 0-62mph takes only 3.2 seconds. The combination of performance and economy comes at a cost however: limited to 918 examples, the 918 Spyder is available to order at 645,000 Euros plus VAT and on the road costs. First deliveries will begin in November 2013.

Honda’s hottest hybrid yet

142

Honda’s current crop of hybrids might be focused more on economy, but the firm’s performance tuner has released details of something a little hotter. Mugen Euro is developing a highly-tuned version of Honda’s CR-Z, which will, according to the company, deliver “Type R-like” performance from the hybrid’s petrol-electric powertrain - and may offer even better fuel economy. This faster, more powerful car will make its world debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in July. The CR-Z Mugen will feature enhancements to both the 1.5-litre i-VTEC petrol engine and the Honda IMA system to boost power and torque, while bespoke brakes and suspension will be fitted to improve the chassis dynamics. The major engine changes, and those made to exhaust and induction, may even result in greater mpg and lower CO2 emissions during some conditions. However, at this early stage, final power, torque and fuel economy figures are not yet known. Lightweight components, including a carbon fibre bonnet, will be employed to lower the overall weight, and the car will use MUGEN alloy wheels to reduce unsprung mass. The CR-Z Mugen is a joint project between

Honda UK and Mugen Euro - the Northamptonbased subsidiary of Honda’s long standing tuning partner Mugen. In 2009, the firm produced the Civic Type R Mugen, an extreme, 240 horsepower version of the popular hot hatch. Commenting on the project, Martin Moll, Head of Marketing for Honda UK, said:”This will be one quick hybrid. With more torque, more power and Mugen’s experience of working with Honda cars, we’re expecting great things. It promises to show how hybrid cars can be even more exciting to drive.” Sadly, the CR-Z Mugen is being developed purely as a one-off prototype, with no plans for a production version.

The Leaf is an affordable, full size family car with a 100 mile range which is more than 80 per cent of drivers do in a day. Nissan say that this groundbreaking moment represents the start of the company’s vision of bringing sustainable mobility to the mass market in the UK. On hand to witness the handover of the first Nissan Leafs was Paul Willcox, Managing Director at Nissan Motor GB. “The Nissan Leaf is pioneering the electric car revolution in the UK. We first unveiled the car in August 2009 and we’ve been building up to this moment for over 18 months,” said Paul. “Today’s deliveries mark the start of the introduction of the Nissan LEAF to customers across the country as our network of electric vehicle dealers will be delivering the cars to their pioneering customers later this week.” The Nissan Leaf will be manufactured at Nissan’s award winning plant in Sunderland from 2013

HEALTH & FITNESS

THE LATEST TIPS FOR LOOKING YOUR BEST

Dance yourself fit

Anti-ageing foods Age is inevitable and it is more than skin deep. It is a gradual deterioration in physical health. Fight back the ravages of time with food. Why we age | Your body’s cells are genetically determined to reproduce a number of times, die and be replaced by new cells. Over time, the process slows down, resulting in a gradual deterioration of all body systems. Your skin is just the most visible. Some of this deterioration is due to the action of unstable oxygen molecules, called free radicals, which accelerate the ageing process. Free radicals are fuelled by cigarette smoke, excessive alcohol, air pollution, X-rays and solar radiation. Basically, you are constantly exposing your body to unnecessary free radicals that speed up your ageing.

144

Fight free radicals Antioxidants help slow the ageing process by disarming and moppingup free radicals before they contribute to irreversible cellular damage. They help to improve your immune system and can help to reduce age-related problems, such as painful joints and even cancer. Like any nutrient, it is best to consume them in their natural state. That means eating lots of antioxidant-rich foods. Folic acid This is needed for healthy cell growth and division. Folic acid-rich foods include breakfast cereals, beans, leafy green vegetables and orange juice. Vitamin B12 This works with folic acid and is needed for optimal cell growth, brain and nerve function and reserves fall sharply after the age of 50. Vitamin B12 is found in meat, liver, kidney, dairy products, eggs and fish.  Vitamin C and vitamin E These help protect against age-related conditions such as heart disease, stroke, cataracts and even some forms of cancer. Vitamin C also helps to regenerate your vitamin E reserves and is found in foods including papaya, sweet peppers, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, strawberries and citrus fruits. Vitamin E is found in almonds, sunflowers seeds and oils, hazelnuts, peanuts, spinach, broccoli,

mangoes and kiwi. Selenium This recently praised mineral is another powerful antioxidant, which helps bolster the immune system, protect against certain cancers and lower your risk of joint inflammation. Selenium-rich foods come mainly from fish sources, the highest being snapper, salmon, cod and tuna, but it is also in button mushrooms, shitake mushrooms, calf livers, barley and lamb. Omega 3 This essential fatty acid has been found to protect against heart disease. Omega 3-rich foods include mackerel, tuna, sardines, salmon, or linseed for vegetarians. These should be consumed at least twice a week. Lycopene Tomato products are rich sources of lycopene, which is a potent antioxidant shown to protect against cancer, particularly prostate cancer, and may also lower cholesterol. 

Too many kids getting too little exercise – Survey results from Change4Life reveal that some 72% of children are not getting enough exercise, with only 22% partaking in out-of-school physical activities.

One of the smartest ways to exercise, say sports psychologists, is to do it while also doing something you enjoy, such as dancing. You’re not only more likely to do it for longer but more likely to do it more intensely. Singing and bopping along while your favourite performer’s CD is on the player is one way of doing it. But better still is to enrol in a dance class. Great for kicking those calories is the sexy salsa, the Latin dance craze that first hit Britain in the mid-70s. Over the past few years it’s become much more mainstream and hugely popular, with classes and salsa nights now widely available. How many calories you burn depends entirely on how long and how intensely you do it, as with any exercise. Salsa specifically focuses on moving the hips from side to side and turning. Rotating the torso is something most people neglect in their workouts. “Our bodies are designed to twist and turn,” says Nick Hudson, head trainer at Holmes Place Academy. “These days we lead sedentary lifestyles, which means we don’t work the muscles that rotate our spines enough, which can make us prone to injury. Salsa is a good way of gently waking these torso muscles up and helps to lightly tone your midriff as well as your legs.” Tap is tipped to be the next big thing. It’s energetic and exub erant fun. Belly dancing has soared in popularity lately as a glamorous way to exercise, plus you get to wear sexy outfits. Ballet is the latest keep fit craze of the stars, jazz is young and funky, while flamenco will allow you to stamp your feet in fiery passion.   Check out what’s on offer in your area by looking in a local further education prospectus. It is a good place to start and costs are always affordable.

A weight off Fernâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mind Former This Morning presenter Fern Britton, who hosts a new Channel 4 chat show this spring, talks about sexism and ageism in television, and why she won't be having a facelift to try and prolong her career. She examines the bitchy, cut-throat world of TV in her debut novel, New Beginnings.

146

Former This Morning presenter Fern Britton is as smiley and bubbly as she is on the telly when we meet to discuss her first venture into fiction. She doesn't want to talk about the gastric band she famously had fitted and which left her open to criticism after her three-stone weight loss was originally attributed to healthy eating and exercise. Nor does she want to talk about the way she looks now (which is fantastic - and younger than her 53 years). "I've been so bored with answering those questions, I don't have to justify any of that again, but you have to work very hard at it. I exercise a lot, I cycle a lot and that's how I keep going," she says. Asked if she is happy with her appearance now, she replies: "I wasn't unhappy before. I was unhealthy before and I didn't know that getting healthier could mean such an extraordinary physical change. While I'm happy that I can buy smaller clothes, that wasn't, and isn't, my objective. "I think a male presenter would not have been given the same attention, but you have to accept there's sexism in television and always will be in probably every industry." Sexism is one thing, ageism is another. But unlike Selina Scott, Anna Ford, Angela Rippon and others who have complained, Britton doesn't want to join that bandwagon. "I'm not expecting it [her TV career] to last forever because I'm a realist. I know we should all be going on until we're 106 but I'm not going to be having any Botox or fillers or a facelift because I have the face I should have for the age I am. I think one of us has to blaze the trail and say, 'No, this is how it is'. If I lose my job because of it, that says a lot about the person who sacks me. Sometimes there's a natural end whether you're male or female. Sportsmen don't moan and groan when they are thrown out of their clubs when they reach 32. It's the reality. But if you've got the ability you will always be there. Angela [Rippon] and Gloria Hunniford are still working, and Moira Stewart is fantastic." Since quitting This Morning 18 months ago, Britton says she doesn't miss the show and doesn't watch it. She sent her replacement, Holly Willoughby, flowers when she took over and is quick to praise her. "Holly's a young mum in a young marriage. She's a modern woman, beautiful, smart, quick and funny. There's room for all of us. And sometimes, when you get older, you have to think, 'It's their turn, I've had my turn'."

Yet Britton remains in demand. Later this month she'll be presenting her own hour-long daily chat show on Channel 4, replacing the Paul O'Grady slot. It will be a mix of real people's true stories, celebrity and entertainment, although she won't reveal her guests just yet. "We don't want to copy Paul O'Grady or This Morning because those two shows are icons in their own right. It will be surprising because it's live. You can change the running order at the last minute if something big happens. I'm terrified, nervous and waiting to fall flat on my face. I'm not an eternal optimist. I always think it's going to come crashing down." Her strength lies in her natural empathy and ability to eke a good interview out of the most unsuspecting people. It was during a BBC interview with Britton that Tony Blair said he would have gone to war in Iraq even if he had known there were not any weapons of mass destruction, and it was Britton who laid into Gordon Brown on This Morning about the economic upheavals affecting us all. Her experience in television has formed a sound backdrop to her debut novel, New Beginnings, a story about Christie Lynch, a journalist and single mother of two who hits the big time with a high-profile presenting job and soon becomes the nation's new sweetheart. It's surely life imitating art for Britton, who spent 14 years in TV news until her profile was raised higher on Ready Steady Cook and then Good Morning, where her chemistry with co-presenter Phillip Schofield was irresistible. The book, a fairly light read, also explores the seamier side of television and Britton throws into the mix a bitchy fellow presenter, a scheming, ruthless agent and the mysterious death of a TV presenter who drowns in an agent's swimming pool. While the book isn't about her own experiences, Britton admits some of the bitchy incidents in her career definitely gave her

inspiration. "I remember a very famous lady presenter, who was having her make-up done, saw my shoes in the corner of the room and asked whose they were. The make-up lady said, 'They're Fern's', to which she said, 'Oh, hasn't she got big feet?' Sometimes people can be so breathtakingly, brilliantly bitchy and unpleasant that you have to applaud them for it." Motherof-four Britton, who married TV cook Phil Vickery in 2000 and with whom she has a nine-year-old daughter, Grace, must be tougher than she seems if the TV world she describes in her novel is authentic. "You have to remember you're not a heart surgeon," she reflects. "When you make a mistake or a fool of yourself, or someone's unpleasant, you think, 'Well, what I'm doing isn't frightfully important'." The plan is that the new TV show, which will initially run for a month, will continue after the summer. Pundits may have predicted Britton would disappear from our screens after leaving This Morning, but it hasn't happened. "I wouldn't have minded if I'd faded from our screens, but I'm very grateful that I've worked non-stop for all these years. I don't feel I've missed out on opportunities and I don't feel envious of other people's things. Most of all, I'm very lucky to have had a real life outside television."

Advice on colour fading and maintaining blonde highlighted hair

It is an honour to be asked to do a regular “Ask the expert” column and since it’s my first one I will share a couple of most commonly asked questions; HOW CAN I STOP MY COLOUR FADING? There are several reasons why your colour may fade, so for a personal assessment of your hair I suggest having a consultation with your hairdresser, which any of our stylists will be happy to do for you free of charge. It may be the type of hair colorant used or the condition of your hair, even the type of shampoo used can fade hair colour. The sun is the biggest culprit, and will even lighten virgin hair. The best advice I can give is to have your hair professionally coloured with a technique that suits your style, keep your hair in the best possible condition with regular treatments, use products like REDKEN’S COLOUR EXTEND range which seals in vibrancy and helps protect colour-treated hair so it stays fresh and shiny. When going out in the sun REDKEN’S COLOUR EXTEND SUN range of products have a patented UV filter Mexoryl S.O which protects highlights, safeguards colour and replenishes sun-stressed hair. Or wear a hat!!! MY BLONDE HIGHLIGHTED HAIR ALWAYS SEEMS DULL AND STRAWLIKE... When having highlights have different depths and tones of blonde tints and high lift colours instead of, or as well as, bleach to create a more broken up effect. Make sure you have a deep treatment after the colouring process and between visits to the salon. The better condition your hair is in the more your hair will shine. Using products designed for blonde hair like REDKEN’S BLONDE GLAM range will improve the colour clarity, reinforce strength, defend against damage and leave the hair brightened, conditioned, replenished and shiny. Having your hair regularly trimmed will prevent split ends occurring.

Happy 1st Birthday Kukui! Friday 26 March saw the HOUSE team invited to Kukui for a special 1st birthday celebration. The ‘Passport to Paradise’ night was lots of fun, with cocktails flowing (perhaps a few too many!) and some quality house music playing through the night. On the night HOUSE had the full VIP treatment with a private booth - a reservation well worth making as it does get busy! Coconut cocktails were flying off the bar, but if you try one thing only, it must be the rum punch barrels - they went down a treat with us! Many thanks to everyone at Kukui and Simon @ 19ten for the invite.

Cutting Edge Beauty

Tara Palmer-Tomkinson reportedly wants surgery on her nose before she attends the Royal Wedding. With cosmetic procedures are on the rise, this feature looks at popular treatments, the reasons people turn to surgery and how much it can cost.

148


Most women would buy a new dress if they were invited to a posh party. But Tara Palmer-Tomkinson isn't most women - and she reportedly wants a new nose before she attends the Royal Wedding in April. An extreme way to look good for a special event perhaps, but Tara, who has already had one nose job to repair the damage caused by her former cocaine habit, is now said to want a straighter profile. The socialite isn't alone in wanting surgery. Whether it's for a big event or not, cosmetic procedures - both surgical and non-surgical - are on the rise, despite the current gloomy economic climate. Market analysts Mintel estimate that 19 million adults (48%) would like some form of cosmetic surgery and while treatments dipped at the start of the economic downturn, the market grew 17% between 2008 and 2010. As plastic surgery techniques have become better and the results more predictable, McGeorge says cosmetic procedures are now a lifestyle choice. Upward trends in the £2.3 billion market include facelifts and breast augmentations, according to the latest figures from the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS). And there was also a huge increase of 28% in gynaecomastia or 'man boob' operations between 2009 and 2010. "It's much more acceptable these days for men to consider cosmetic procedures," says McGeorge. "In days gone by, they would never take their T-shirt off on holiday, but now they know there's a treatment out there and they don't need to feel embarrassed." Breast augmentation ('boob jobs') still remains the most popular cosmetic surgery procedure overall, with blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), coming in second, followed by breast reductions and facelifts. But McGeorge advises: "If you're allowed one operation in life, always have your eyes done, because when people meet you they always look at them. "If you have bright eyes, then the rest of you can be a disaster zone." He says that women will often think the most important procedure is a facelift because of the laxity of their neck. "Although there are few occasions when I will lead a patient to their decision, I do think you devalue a facelift if you don't do your eyes at the same time." For those who don't fancy going under the knife, Botox and its ability to freeze facial muscles, so smoothing away wrinkles, is a hugely popular non-surgical option, and the number of treatments rose to over one million for the first time back in 2009. Celebrities who've tried Botox include Nicole Kidman, who recently confessed she'd had the injections but didn't like the way her face looked afterwards, Anne Robinson, Kylie Minogue and Katie Price (who is also a big fan of other cosmetic procedures, of course). McGeorge says: "Non-surgical enhancements are relatively straightforward, simple things to do, with very little downside. And because of this, more and more people are considering them. "But they will only do so much and ultimately, there comes a point where surgery is needed to rectify problems."

He advises people considering a cosmetic procedure to consult their GP or contact BAAPS, whose members are all trained in aesthetic plastic surgery. "Don't be seduced by fancy adverts - they're often designed to bring people in for the benefit of the clinic." Prospective patients should also be cautious about going abroad for cheaper treatments, as other countries don't always have the strict safety measures of Britain. A good surgeon should behave ethically and make it clear to a patient what treatment can achieve, he underlines. In the case of liposuction, for example, he explains it should be emphasised that the procedure isn't an alternative to dieting. Comprehensive consultations before any procedure are vital, he stresses, and surgeons should tell people to go away and think again if they have a deeper problem which surgery won't fix: "It's about making sure the patient's expectations can be met - and alarm bells can start ringing early o n. "Surgery is only enhancing a physical form.

If you have a psychological problem, it's not going to treat it. "At the end of the day, it's about the patient's wellbeing, not just the surgery."

Under the knife The average cost of the most popular cosmetic procedures: – Breast augmentation: £4,500-£5,000 – Breast reduction: £3,500-£5,500 – Blepharoplasty (eyelids): £4,000-£4,500 – Facelift: £4,000-£9,000 – Rhinoplasty (nose): £3,000-£4,000 – Gynaecomasty (man boobs): £3,500 – Botox: £300 For more information on cosmetic procedures, visit www.baaps.org.uk or ring the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons’ helpline on 020 7405 2234 149

All the signs are there whether it’s nature with the blossom appearing on the cherry trees or the constant adverts in the newspapers encouraging me to buy a new lawnmower. For the first time in my life I find myself taking an interest in both. I used to think that gardening ability was something you were born with. Certainly in the 10 years that I have been a homeowner I have not seen the garden as anything more than a responsibility; a lawn that had to be mown and borders that needed to be weeded. Both tasks were completed under duress rather than with any sense of enjoyment. But then something changed inside me. I am now quite happy to spend an hour scouring the lawn for dandelions and own one of those little two pronged forks for removing the weeds, roots and all. I find myself standing in the kitchen the morning after mowing the grass and tidying the borders, and taking a sense of pride at how neat and tidy it looks. I can’t remember at what point this transformation happened. It has crept over me like Japanese knotweed and now I can’t get rid of it. It might have been the arrival of the new shed last summer. The new shed that still has that lovely new shed smell and makes me smile and feel comfortable every time I walk in. Maybe that aroma awakened something deep inside me? Or perhaps it was my 7 year old daughter who announced that she would like to try and grow her own vegetables that made me subconsciously want to “man-up” and learn a few garden skills that every dad should know. I will confess to quite enjoying the conversations with my father about gardening. Dad always had an allotment when I was little and although he gave it up due to other commitments some time ago he still tends to a decent sized vegetable garden at home. Talking about the garden has actually brought us closer together because having lived away from home and been independent since I was 19 this is one of the few moments where he feels needed because I’m seeking advice (the other being carpentry). The latest gem was that when you plant carrots you should always plant a row of spring onion in front of them. Apparently the carrot fly doesn’t like spring onion and so it flies up over them and doesn’t come back down in time to spot the carrots. Not even discussing carrot fly psychology seems odd to me now. It’s just a shame that I have developed this love of gardening at a point in my life where I can’t do it for too long before my back starts to ache. And don’t get me started on my knees….

Shop your Shape Knowing how to dress your shape can be tricky. Follow these few simple rules and you’ll be in the right tracks. Otherwise contact Emmeline for a consultation to ‘shop your shape!’ - If you are slightly heavier of the bottom half and small on the torso, choose styles that highlight your shoulders, perhaps with puff sleeves or pintucks. - If your proportions are the opposite and you are larger on top, keep your necklines lower, and choose styles that balance out your bottom half. - For very straight figures, you can carry off many styles, but if your shape is more boy-like choose styles that have more feminine features such as enhanced waistline or attractive necklines.

what’s newontv A rundown of some of the best new TV series’ starting over the next fortnight. Get your Sky+ ready!

BRITAIN’S got talent ITV’s hit entertainment show Britain’s Got Talent returns for a fifth year following the success of the last series, which saw gymnastics troupe Spelbound crowned the 2010 winners. Hosted by Ant and Dec, this series will see comedian Michael McIntyre and actor and television personality David Hasselhoff join Amanda Holden on a new-look judging panel. The judges will hit the road and travel the length and breadth of the UK in search of Britain’s best talent. This year will also see them visit the city of Liverpool for the first time. Simon Cowell will return to Britain’s Got Talent as a judge for the live stage of the competition. New judges, a new city and in an exciting first for Britain’s Got Talent, this series will also see a brand new online audition round. For the first time ever, contestants can enter the competition by uploading videos of their act via video-sharing network YouTube. The twenty most entertaining acts will go on to perform for the Britain’s Got Talent judges at

the YouTube online audition round, but do they have the talent to win a place at this year’s live semi finals? As ever, the only rule is that there are no rules! From dance troupes to acrobats, magicians to comedians and dancing horses to singing dogs, the show is open to any performer of any age, from any background, with any talent. All they need is a skill and star quality which they think will impress the judges. With only a few minutes available during the auditions, the acts don’t have long to impress. Each judge has a buzzer in front of them, when they press their buzzer a corresponding red cross will light on the stage. Once all three buzzers have gone off, their time is over. For some of the acts the walk on stage lasts longer that their performance! As with previous years the public are allowed access to the audition venues in all the major cities around the country. And although the audience can’t buzz the acts out like the judges, their reactions can influence their decision. So with the audience acting as the fourth judge it’s crucial the acts win them over as much as the judges.

Retailers are always on the lookout for the next big thing and, in this new series, the buying teams of high street giants Boots, Habitat and Liberty are prepared to take an enormous gamble by asking members of the public to supply them with their next best-selling products. By staging three unique open days, Britain's Next Big Thing offers unknown designers and producers the chance of a lifetime: to pitch directly to the retail industry's power brokers in an attempt to get their products stocked in these prestigious stores. Over six months, retail entrepreneur and "Dragon" Theo Paphitis follows both buyers and suppliers as they experience the highs and lows of bringing a product to market, from initial pitch to shop shelf. Many won't make the grade but, for a lucky few, it will be a life-changing experience. Theo explains: "The open days held by Liberty, Boots and Habitat are a fantastic opportunity for the untried, hopeful suppliers to meet the buyers. It really is an opportunity of a lifetime. This is a real fast track into retail."

As the series begins, iconic department store Liberty throws open its doors to the public at 6am for an exclusive open day. Six hundred people get up early to queue around the block for the opportunity to pitch their products to the buying team, led by buying director Ed Burstell. The commercially inexperienced artisans are given just three minutes to pitch their wares to the team and only a handful makes it through to a second round with Burstell, whose decision is final. Among the fledgling suppliers are: former carpenter Tom Hopkins-Gibson, who has travelled down from Scotland with his porcelain and wooden bowls; professor of architecture, Richard Weston who dazzles the buyers with his unique silk scarves; and glass-blower Charlotte Sale. Meanwhile, at Boots HQ in Nottingham, the buying team gets ready for its open day, vetting hundreds of applications to shortlist just 10 potential suppliers to fill the gaps in the £26bn health and beauty market.

sing if you can

16 april 7.20pm, itv Hosted by comedian KEITH LEMON and Queen of the Jungle STACEY SOLOMON, every episode will see two celebrity teams trying to deliver the best performances of modern hits and classic crowd-pleasers whilst taking on extraordinary challenges designed to distract them. Can celebrities hold their nerve whilst delivering a song from a specially-designed erupting volcano? Or singing a solo on a wire above the stage that randomly drops throughout the performance? Or even whilst having their chest waxed?! Sing If You Can also offers viewers a chance to see celebrities well and truly out of their comfort zone. During the series, singer and actor Ray Quinn will make his debut as a rapper … whilst some very unlikely names will take on the might of Lady GaGa… Each episode will feature a celebrity judging panel, casting an irreverent eye over proceedings. Ultimately though it will be the studio audience that decides which team goes through to the end game and stakes are high as one celebrity

from the losing team will be plunged into a giant water tank. In the end game, the winning team can win money for the show’s nominated charity - Teenage Cancer Trust. The final song is performed on a giant turntable that spins faster faster - the longer the team can keep their balance, the more they win for charity. Some of the country’s most popular TV and music stars will appear on the show and face the ultimate music challenge. They include actress Brigitte Nielsen, Boyzone’s Mikey Graham, X Factor’s Jedward, singer Shelia Ferguson, former England cricketer Darren Gough, singer Chesney Hawkes, Hollyoaks Gemma Merna, sports presenter and former England rugby player Martin Bayfield, singer and actor Ray Quinn, dancer Brendan Cole, presenter Craig Doyle, singer Camilla Kerslake, Loose Women’s Lisa Maxwell, singer Jonathan Ansell, actor Ben Richards, singer Toyah, actress Sian Reeves, stage star Jodie Prenger, actress Roxanne Pallett, singer Sinitta, actor Ricky Groves, ex footballer and pundit Rodney Marsh, singer Zoe Birkett, actress Tricia Penrose, singer Brenda Edwards, stage star Leanne Jones and former Steps star Faye Tozer.

cherry healey investigates: is breast best? 12 april, 9pm, BBC Three

To kick off BBC Three’s Bringing Up Britain season, Cherry Healey (Cherry Goes Dating, Cherry Gets Married) presents a revealing and compelling documentary that explores both sides of the breastfeeding debate. Breastfeeding is, for some, a taboo subject and it often provokes controversy. The World Health Organisation advises that all mothers breastfeed their children for at least the first six months, but it is not for everyone. Cherry herself found the experience painful and traumatic and eventually gave up. Over a year later, she is still plagued by feelings of guilt for “not trying harder” and is now on a mission to find out how other new mums really feel about breastfeeding. In Cherry Healey Investigates – Is Breast Best?, she meets a diverse group of mums on the vanguard of both sides of the debate. From a group of “lactivists”, who strongly believe that breastfeeding is the only option for a new mum, to pro-bottle advocates and teen mum Jess, who has formula fed all the way, Cherry hears personal stories from women from all walks of life. During her investigation, Cherry also meets one of the country’s leading paediatricians; asks why the UK has such low breastfeeding rates; and finds out what happens when breastfeeding mums go back to work.

piers morgan’s life stories 16 april, 9.50pm, itv

The fifth series of Piers Morgan’s Life Stories will kick off with actor and comedian Russell Brand. In a revealing interview the TV funny man spills the beans about his marriage to singer Katy Perry, his rise to fame, his addictions to drugs and sex and his infamous phone call to actor Andrew Sachs. Plus, friends of Russell’s, including Noel Gallagher, David Baddiel and Dame Helen Mirren talk about their relationships with the star. And, Russell’s mum, Barbara, discusses her son’s drug addiction and her fear that he might die. Russell tells Piers that living with his wife, Katy, has been harder than he imagined. He

says: “See, if she leaves stuff lying around I have to deal with it. And if I leave stuff on the floor I have to pick it up. That confuses me. “She takes ages to get ready. It’s unbelievable. I had no idea what went on, I was never normally around for that bit.” He also reveals that he would like to have children one day, saying: “Yeah children, that’d be good, wouldn’t it? “We haven’t been married very long, she works loads, I work loads, I’m still excited and enchanted by her but at the right time though, I think it’d be brilliant.” Russell also talks to Piers about his childhood, his hair, and being kicked out of the Italia Conti theatre school. 157


bringing up britain: misbehaving mum’s to be 14 april, 9pm, bbc one

Part of BBC Three’s Bringing Up Britain season, this warm and uplifting series follows a team of midwives as they take pregnant women who binge drink, chain smoke and overeat and help them get back into shape before they give birth.

Being pregnant can be one of the most exciting times in a woman’s life, but some put their babies at risk before they are even born. Twenty per cent of women smoke during pregnancy, 35 per cent continue to drink alcohol and 20 per cent of pregnant women are worryingly obese. Each week, three soon-to-be mums work with the specialist midwives, who use their extensive experience and cutting-edge technology to help them transform their bad habits and reverse the dangers currently posed to their babies’ health. Together, they create a personalised plan to get these misbehaving mums back in shape for one of the most important events of their lives. In this first episode, specialist midwife Lisa Fendall meets 22-year-old Heather, who smoked her way through her first pregnancy and now, 26 weeks pregnant with her second child, has still not kicked the habit. Midwife Alison Williams works with 35-yearold Juliet, a self-confessed wine-drinking workaholic who’s finding it difficult to cope with the sudden change in lifestyle needed when pregnant. Finally, midwife Carol Hemmings meets 22-year-old Kayley who, at three months pregnant, is living off a diet of chips and gravy. Already classed as morbidly obese, Kayley needs to abandon the junk food and start looking after both herself and her baby. The series follows the midwives as they try to convince these unhealthy women to quit their damaging ways for the sake of themselves and their unborn children.

Pop superstars Blue get some Eurovision advice from the experts This year the UK is taking a completely new approach for their Eurovision entry: a known act, with a proven track record both here and internationally. Blue are up to the task. They’ve sold over 13 million records, won two Brit Awards and had 40 No. 1 singles worldwide. But what does it take to be a winner at Eurovision? Graham Norton brings his own inimitable style of commentary to this one-hour special, which features some help from some of the biggest names in the business as Blue set out to discover what it takes to restore national pride. Expert opinion from Sir Cliff Richard, Robin Gibb, Robbie Williams, JLS, Arlene Phillips and John Barrowman contributes to the group’s plan. Drawing on a wealth of archive footage from previous years and following Blue at each stage, the documentary joins the band behind the scenes as they record and remix their song, work on a new image and meet choreographers, designers and stylists. There’s insight into the tension and group dynamic as the band put themselves under increasing pressure and question whether the strength of their friendship and talent will be enough to get them through. Finally, at the end of the show, viewers will see the finished song in a special performance that Blue think will do it. Next stop: Dusseldorf!

The Illumination Kevin Brockmeier, £16.99

A look at the latest releases, plus what’s new in paperback. – by Sarah O’Meara

Memories After My Death: The Joseph ‘Tommy’ Lapid Story Yair Lapid, £18.99

The Illumination by Kevin Brockmeier is published in hardback by Jonathan Cape, priced £16.99. Available now. A bizarre phenomenon, known as The Illumination, is happening around the world in Kevin Brockmeier’s latest novel. Pain manifests itself as light so the secrets of suffering are exposed - bruises and scratches blaze, injuries glow and illnesses shine from within. But that’s not the main premise of the story. A random encounter in hospital sees Carol Ann in possession of a journal filled with handwritten love memos by a dedicated husband. Every day, he gives his wife another reason why he loves her, from the way she leaves pasta patterns on the walls to her terrible puns. The journal then moves into the hands of five other people, with its strong message of unwavering love changing each of their lives, if only briefly. The journey the journal takes is not important, what is important is its impact on people in the time they have it. One of the US’s best young novelists, American writer Brockmeier provides an inspiring take on suffering and grief.

spring

David Szalay, £16.99

Spring by David Szalay is published in hardback by Jonathan Cape, priced £16.99. Available now. It is unsettling the way David Szalay seems to utterly inhabit his characters in Spring, told through multiple points of view, with the same events seen anew by a different set of eyes. James was someone in the internet boom, but after the bust he fears he is no one, turning to everything from being an estate agent to a racehorse owner. Meeting Katherine at a wedding, the two begin the awkward dance of a new relationship. We zigzag through time as Szalay takes us through the seemingly mundane middle class lives of James and Katherine, as well as friends and relatives on the sidelines, at the beginning of one spring in London. The nuances of their emotions, or at times lack of emotion, are handled with an expert, but light, touch in this absorbing read.

Hisham Matar, £16.99

Hisham Matar’s first novel, In The Country Of Men, about childhood in Muammar Gaddafi’s Libya, was shortlisted for the 2006 Booker Prize. Anatomy follows this semi-autobiographical ground with both the author and his narrator, Nuri, suffering the pain of their father being abducted by Egyptian secret agents, never to be seen again. Nuri lives in Cairo in the 1970s with his father, a former Libyan government minister. His mother died when he was eight and six years later both father and son fall in love with Mona, a beautiful 24-year-old English girl. Nuri’s obsession grows, even when Mona marries his father and the couple send him to boarding school in England. The family are to spend Christmas in Switzerland when Nuri’s father is kidnapped. Nuri initially enjoys being alone with Mona, but as they discover more about his father, his world is shattered. This is a beautifully written book, full of strong characters. Mater’s style is economic with words, yet it still provides an abidance of detail, pathos and depth.

Recipe Pesto pasta

Serves 4

Ingredients 150ml fresh vegetable stock 175g asparagus, trimmed and cut into 5cm lengths 225g mushrooms, wiped & sliced 300g green and white tagliatelle 400g canned artichoke hearts, drained and halved 150g extra lean ham, chopped For the Pesto: 4 garlic cloves, crushed 8tbsp chopped fresh basil leaves 8tbsp half-fat creme fraiche 4tbsp freshly grated Parmesan cheese Freshly ground black pepper To serve: 2tbsp shredded fresh basil leaves Fresh Parmesan cheese shavings

Put the stock and asparagus in a saucepan. Bring to the boil, reduce the heat, cover and simmer for two minutes. Add the mushrooms and simmer for a further two minutes, until the asparagus is just tender. Drain and set aside. Bring a large saucepan of lightly salted water to the boil. Add the pasta and cook until al dente - just tender, but still with a bite to it - or according to the timings on the packet. Meanwhile, to make the pesto, put the garlic, basil, creme fraiche, Parmesan and black pepper in a food processor or blender. Process for a few seconds, until smooth. Alternatively, finely chop the basil and mix all the ingredients together in a bowl. Drain the pasta and return it to the warm pan. Add the mushrooms, asparagus and artichokes to the pasta and cook over a low heat, stirring frequently for two to three minutes, until piping hot.Remove pan from the heat, add the pesto and ham and toss well. Serve immediately in warm bowls, sprinkled with shredded basil leaves and Parmesan shavings.

Tips While pine nuts and olive oil are traditionally high in fat, this combination of garlic, fresh basil and half-fat crème fraÎche makes a healthier, low-fat version, while still packing a mean punch

Recipe Oaty plum crumbles "With this salmon

recipe, I love to add lots Tips & lots of fresh chopped tomatoes to the olive oil and shrimps, which help add a sweet bite with a slight sharpness to complete the vinaigrette."

Plums, like cherries, apples and

pears, are a particularly low-GI fruit. The crumble topping is

made with jumbo oats, which

helps to keep the GI of the overall dessert low, too.

160

Serves 4 Ingredients 750g ripe plums, stoned and sliced 4tbsp water 1-2tbsp light muscovado sugar Half-fat creme fraiche, low-fat custard or ice cream, to serve For the crumble topping: 100g wholemeal selfraising flour 3tbsp polyunsaturated margarine 70g dark muscovado sugar 80g jumbo oats 1/4tsp freshly grated nutmeg Caster sugar, for sprinkling

Place the plums, water and sugar in a saucepan. Heat until simmering, then simmer for 10-15 minutes, until the plums are just cooked and soft. Meanwhile, to make the crumble topping, put the flour in a mixing bowl, add the margarine and rub it in with the tips of your fingers. The mixture should resemble breadcrumbs. Add the sugar, oats and nutmeg, and mix. Divide the plums and their cooking liquid between four ramekins. Top with the crumble mixture, then sprinkle with a little caster sugar. Bake in a preheated oven at 180C/Gas Mark 4 for 15-20 minutes, until the topping is golden and the fruit is bubbling. Serve warm with some half-fat creme fraiche, low-fat custard or ice cream. Variation: Replace the plums with apples, cherries, pears, apricots, peaches or mixed berries. For some extra spice, add one tablespoon of grated fresh ginger to the crumble mixture.
