let the magic begin…

A big box of chocs, fizz, family and a turkey roasting in the oven – I reckon they may be my very favourite ingredients for a perfect Christmas. Add a stocking-load of gifts and a great movie on the TV and, yes, I’m pretty much in heaven. But, this year, I’m thinking things may be different. You see, in putting together the pages of this fabulous issue, I’ve learnt a lot about how to make things that bit more special, and it’s got me quite inspired… First, there’s our stunning cover star, Shirley Ballas (page 6) – yes, she really does look that good in real life! – who stresses the importance of sending Christmas cards. It’s made me realise how much I love getting a glittery envelope with a heartfelt…

top of my santa list is a… man!

‘I’m going to be as glitzy as the Strictly glitterball trophy’ Shirley, 58, lives between England and LA. She has a grown-up son, Mark, 32, a musician and dancer on the US version of Strictly, Dancing With The Stars. She also acted as guardian to Dancing With The Stars siblings Derek and Julianne Hough, who lived with her in England in the 1990s. MY PERFECT CHRISTMAS I’ve spent a lot of Christmases in different places. I did many with my ex-husband, Corky, and his family in Houston, we’ve done Christmas at Mark’s, at mine, and at my mum’s. Each place is different, but I think it depends on the people you’re with, not the place. So for me, it doesn’t make any difference where I am, as long as I’m surrounded by people…

our christmas songs came true!

‘We have a relationship full of fun and dancing’ When Arrianne O’Shea, 30, from Brighton, discovered swing dance, she found far more than just a new hobby. ‘I love this photo of me with Scott, we’re literally Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree. But this is what we do, dancing together is what makes us happy and the thing I love most of all about swing dance is that it’s impossible to do it without smiling. The music sucks you in, transporting you to another place, back to a different era. Swing events at Christmas are especially fun, with twinkling fairy lights and silly Christmas jumpers. There’s a real sense of sparkle and magic – and for me, that feeling lasts all year long. I’ve always loved dance and, as a child, I had…
