Junior is growing up

I can’t believe my boy Junior turns 16 this week! I’m organising something special for him and his friends, but it’s a surprise.

I’m planning something that even I’m not invited to – so you know it’s pure love!

I was scared about him getting to this age. I was thinking it was going to be a nightmare, but he’s a really good kid and I feel blessed at how respectful he is.

I do take pride when people tell me how well he’s been brought up, especially when I’m so strict on manners.

What’s more, he has finished his schooling and will be starting college soon. I mean, when did this all happen? Junior at college?

He recently had his prom and it’s a moment I’ll never forget. I remember my prom (or formal as it’s called in Oz) when I wore a white suit and purple tie and went with a girl called Liza.

I really liked her. She only liked me as a friend, but she still agreed to go with me.

I remember my dad being so embarrassing, taking pictures, and now, all these years later, I’m that cringe dad!


This column is coming to you from Villa Aurora in Vale do Lobo in the Algarve in Portugal.

We decided to get away for half-term and we’re having a great time.

J, P, Millie and Theo have loved being at the beach, and we’re planning on going out on a boat to find some dolphins.

It’s just so nice to be here, all six of us as a family, and the kids have loved being with each other.

Initially I was planning on going to our home in Cyprus, but with it being on the amber list and having to quarantine upon return it wouldn’t have worked as the kids have school, Emily has work and I start rehearsals for Grease The Musical soon.

Not quite the poster boy…yet

Someone recently messaged me on Instagram about me doing my annual calendar, while somebody else asked how my abs were doing. I’m not going to lie – my abs are still in lockdown! They’ve taken a bit of a hit over this last year.

I’m not embarrassed to say that I’m not feeling as calendar-ready as I’d like, but I think that’s understandable.

I will get there, just maybe not right now. I do still train and I’m in reasonably good – but not great – shape.

Boris' cheeky congratulations

Anyone who knows me realises I love to have a laugh and be cheeky. But when I posted on Instagram my congratulations message to Boris Johnson and Carrie Symonds (above) on their wedding, I got mixed reviews.

I wrote, “Enjoy your wedding BJ. Probs said that wrong.” I love how some people didn’t even get it, and others thought I accidentally wrote it without realising the wordplay.

I love a bit of banter and I don’t think I could have worded it better. So congrats PM!

If delaying easing lockdown is what it takes, then so be it

A scientist advising the Government has said the full easing of lockdown restrictions on 21 June should be delayed by a “few weeks” due to rising coronavirus cases.

If it takes delaying the relaxations so we can live our lives as normally as possible after that then I don’t see a problem with it.

I might be wrong but it feels like we’re pretty much out of lockdown anyway, as we can go to restaurants, cinemas and travel to some places.

I’m sure there are some industries and individuals still suffering and, for them, I totally understand this is a nightmare, but hopefully our amazing vaccination programme will continue winning in the race.

The fact no deaths from coronavirus were reported on one day recently shows we’re moving in the right direction.
