hooray for autumn!

There’s something about the dapple of light through autumn leaves, slight dampness in the early morning air and shortening days that always gives me that sense of new beginnings. Perhaps it’s just childhood memories of going back to school in the inevitable oversized uniform and starchy collared shirt, but I always get this feeling of anticipation and change. So I’m thrilled that this month’s issue of Prima captures that same excitement, with pages packed full of new fashion trends (think checks, tartan and tweed) and gorgeous make-up in plums and golds. And for your home, we’ve got the top 10 high-street looks to update any room in a flash (page 114). But, of course, autumn also brings back memories of putting your feet up in front of the telly –…

‘spray tans & braces… ‘yes, i’m having a mid-life crisis!’

Mel, 50, lives just outside London with her husband Ben Morris, a television producer, and their two daughters, Florence, 16, and Vita, 14. This year, she’s swapping TV for the stage in a production of the Stephen Sondheim and George Furth musical, Company.LOOKING GOOD AT 50I’ve recently got braces. I think it’s a mid-life crisis writ large! I’ve had so much mickey-taking and I’ve always said, ‘Oh, I’ve got terrible 1970s teeth.’ I’d say my siblings and I have got the worst teeth in Britain. My beloved sister Coky, five years older than me, had hers done three years ago. I was secretly slightly seething because I knew she was going to have a set of cracking gnashers. And they do look really, really good.‘You don’t need Botox, just get…

what rocks mel’s world…

Current TV obsession I’m rediscovering Lovejoy. I forgot how good Ian McShane was in it. He’d be in a scene and then suddenly turn to camera and do a monologue. He’s sensational.Food Where do I start? Cornish pasties. Battenberg cake. Goldenberries covered in raw cacao. I buy them by the bagload. Dried cherries. Nando’s Peri-Peri medium-strength sauce literally on everything…Signature dish I do a mean Brazilian fish stew. My sister-in-law, Dodi, gave me the recipe.Celebrity crush Hugh Grant. I’ve a bigger crush on him than ever before. I could never meet him, I’d have an accident. Genuinely.Book The Magic Mountain by Thomas Mann. It will blow your mind.Text or phone call? Text. I used to think that ‘lol’ meant ‘lots of love’. So I’d be texting ‘lol, Mum’ and the…
