BARBARA TAYLOR BRADFORD OBE is one of the most successful novelists of all time. Her latest book, Master of His Fate (HarperCollins), is out on 29 November. In our feature Comfort & Joy (page 86), she recalls the glittering New York Christmas party she hosted for her husband, TV producer Robert Bradford, who’d had a tough and lonely wartime childhood. “I wanted to make up for all the parties he never had as a boy,” she says. TANIA EDWARDS is a stand-up comedian and writer, who has appeared on TV shows such as Mock the Week and Stand Up for the Week. She recently supported Katherine Ryan on her sell-out tour. Tania’s worst Christmas (page 101) involved a new baby, a house move and the terrifying task of hosting the big…

“Although the season of goodwill can be hard work for the women who make it happen, it’s also us that love to uphold the family folklore” It’s always lovely to see new inspiring ideas at Christmas and think about how we can turn our homes into stylish, sparkly grottoes. You’ll find lots of gorgeous festive decorating tips in this issue, and we’ve had adorable children Leyland and Elia, plus the cutest dog ever, Gigi, helping us create the magic. But a recurring theme that kept coming up in the office when we were planning this issue is nostalgia and how much we all love the age-old traditions that make Christmas truly special. And although the season of goodwill can be seriously hard work (not to mention stressful!) for the women who…

“Pre-show, I burn some incense and meditate to centre myself” LEE RYAN, 35, lives in London. He is currently single and has two children, Bluebell and Rayn, from previous relationships. His dance partner is Nadiya Bychkova. STRICTLY STRUGGLE? Being tired. But on the plus side, I’ve quit drinking – it’s a good excuse to! AND STRENGTH? I’m a passionate person and I don’t do anything by halves, so if I’m going to do something, I’ll go for it. I don’t know about the steps, but I’m giving it my all. ANY SURPRISES? The schedule. It’s insane. I don’t know how anyone can do another job at the same time. When Simon [Webbe] did it, he was also touring with Blue. I loved EastEnders, but I’m glad I’m not doing it now. PRE-SHOW CONFIDENCE TRICK? I…

“I still believe in the miracle of Mother Christmas” Dear Mother Christmas, Sorry, I appreciate that you’re really busy right now, what with several billion presents to wrap and those pesky elves constantly nicking the Sellotape. I just wanted to send a message of support from one woman to another. Every year, I imagine how you must roll your eyes when children are queuing up to meet Father Christmas. It’s Father Christmas to whom all those longing letters are addressed. Father Christmas who they leave out a sherry and mince pie for, plus a carrot for Rudolph. Who do they think mucks out the reindeer, eh? Who buys wrapping paper the length of the Nile and matches the right gift to the right child? It’s not your old man, snoring in the…
