here’s to a fabulous 2020!

By the end of 2020, we’ll all be eating hay and insects. No, I haven’t lost the plot, it’s what the experts are predicting for the next year! In our feature 2020 Vision (page 37), we’ve rounded up the new buys, fashions and foods that will be coming our way over the next 12 months, so you’ll be in the know before, well, you know it! This New Year issue also takes a peek at some great holiday destinations (page 127) for those of us with a big birthday, anniversary or get-together coming up.

‘chris & i still get on because we didn’t marry!’

Jayne, 62, lives in East Sussex with her husband, sound engineer Phil Christensen, and their two adopted children, Kieran, 17, and Jessica, 13. QUEEN OF THE ICE To still have a career at 62 feels pretty great. I owe that to Dancing On Ice. Chris and I retired in 1998 and the plan was to settle at home and concentrate more on our families. Then, all of a sudden, the phone rang and ITV wanted to make a programme about teaching celebrities how to skate. My first thought was, ‘Will that really work?’ I wasn’t convinced that celebrities could learn how to do it in a matter of months. Luckily, they’ve proved me wrong… at least some of them have! There’s always some sort of disaster on the show. The worst was when…

midnight calling

TAKE A BOW If you prefer trousers to a dress, a jumpsuit is the one-piece wonder that every wardrobe needs. The oversized bow on this sleek little number takes it from high street to high end. This stand-out style is perfect for black tie events. HIGH SHINE Who wouldn’t want to dance the night away in a shimmery silver party dress? Go for all-out sparkle with an abundance of sequins, keep accessories minimal and let the dress take centre stage. COCKTAIL HOUR Ooze glamour in this sequinned, floor-length skirt. Add a white silk shirt or blouse (the peplum waistband on the one pictured sits perfectly) and a pair of black sandals and you have an outfit you’ll wear again and again. BLACK MAGIC Sometimes less really is more, and this understated strapless gown can make for head-turning…

trend to try… boilersuits

To take the boilersuit into evening wear, look for luxe fabrics, nipped-in waists and ever-so-practical pockets. Denim is perfect weekend wear, and a tie belt accentuates the waist. Roll up the cuffs and add a silky scarf for an effortless French vibe. WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE? Is it a boilersuit or a jumpsuit? Boilersuits have a utility feel, with front pockets, a belt and a looser fit. For a cool, sporty look, wear this khaki denim design with a puffa and trainers. A pop of colour brings the look to life, while cosy accessories keep the chill at bay. Layered with a poloneck, coat and hiking boots, this boilersuit will take you through the winter season.…

you’ll never believe what these amazing dogs do…

‘Every time I volunteer at the children’s wards, it’s the same story; I watch a sea of little faces light up at the sight of my gentle golden retriever. I know all too well that hospitals can be a difficult place to be, so it’s wonderful knowing that we can make people smile. I became familiar with those wards long before volunteering there. In 2008, my husband, Mike, and I were devastated when our nine-year-old son, Ollie, was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukaemia. While Ollie thankfully recovered, he really missed our golden retrievers, Monty and Totty, while he was in hospital. Every time I visited, I wished I could bring them with me, because I knew how much they’d cheer him up. Eternally grateful to the hospital staff for all they’d done,…
