I’m feeling revitalised after spending quality time over half term with my 17-year-old daughter and 13-year-old son. We went to see the London Lions play basketball and to see Chris Brown in concert at the O2 – where we bumped into England captain Harry Kane! Chris hasn’t aged a bit. I told my daughter, “I was first listening to Chris Brown when I was pregnant with you!” She loves his music, so that felt really full circle.
So many questions
My heart goes out to the loved ones of Nicola Bulley after her body was found in the River Wyre three weeks after she went missing. There are still so many questions. Why couldn’t they find her sooner? It needs to be investigated. I’m not an expert, but the whole situation doesn’t sit well with me. The menopause and alcohol narrative has been really messy, too. As a mum-of-two, all I keep thinking about is Nicola’s two young girls.
Last Monday, a year to the day we lost Jamal Edwards, I joined his mum Brenda, sister Tanisha and my Loose Women co-stars Linda Robson, Charlene White and Kelle Bryan at an event celebrating his life. I can’t reveal too much, just that it was an emotional evening and exactly as Brenda wanted it. We all wore blue in tribute to his love of Chelsea FC. This has been the most difficult year of Brenda’s life and my only mission is to be there to support her in continuing Jamal’s legacy. It’s in times of loss you realise what’s most important. We can be so misled by the business of life, the glitz and glam, when it’s the simple things – like a chat and a cuddle with your loved ones – that are the most precious.
Food for thought
Mayor of London Sadiq Khan has announced he is launching a £130m scheme to give every primary school pupil in the city free school meals for the next academic year. It’s needed! We realised in lockdown there are many children facing food poverty. It chokes me up when I think about these kids. I used to work in social care, so I know there are many whose only proper meals are at school. The fact we’re even having to fight for these kids is unbelievable. They’re our next generation. If we can’t protect them, then who will?
My Queen Alison
My mate Alison Hammond made history by being the first Black woman to host the BAFTAs. She looked phenomenal and when she was on that stage, I thought, “Yes, Queen, this is where you belong!” She’s a household name. I adored her partnership with Richard E Grant, too. What a difficult few years he’s had, losing his beautiful wife, and he’s been so vulnerable in sharing that. I was only disappointed that Viola Davis didn’t win Best Actress for The Woman King.
