My hairdresser once told me that I have fine hair, but lots of it. I’m not sure that’s the best endorsement but, two children on, I realise quite simply that you have got to accept what you are born with, right? I might not be able to conjure up a glossy mane, but the beauty pages this week caught my attention – 10 ways to thicker, shinier hair (p24). Yes, please! If my family can’t find me, I’m either in the bathroom testing each and every product OR they won’t recognise me, so profound is the result. I’m hoping for the latter! Enjoy the issue and don’t forget we have 20% off Judge kitchenware (p42)! If you are staying in and don’t want to miss out on your favourite magazine, remember…

what a week

LOUISE ‘I’m not focusing on dating’ She’s been open about the fact she’s struggled with the dating scene since splitting from her ex Jamie, in 2017. But now, Louise Redknapp has confessed that she’s all but given up on finding a new man. ‘I feel like everyone is waiting – asking, “When is she going to meet someone? When is she going to date someone?”’ Louise said. ‘To be completely honest, after the pandemic, I actually really want to concentrate on my career.’ She added, ‘If I ever meet anybody, I’ll be the first to talk about it, I don’t want to hide anything from anyone. But right now, my focus is the boys and giving myself a shot at what I love doing.’ Speaking of her relationship with Jamie, who is expecting a baby…

strictly in crisis!

Arguably, it’s been a cruel run-up to the launch of this year’s Strictly Come Dancing, and show bosses have already faced setbacks including feedback from fans, who’ve summed up the 2021 line-up as ‘scraping the barrel’. The list of 15 celebrities features former EastEnders actor Nina Wadia, musician Tom Fletcher from McFly, actor Greg Wise and comedian Robert Webb (who memorably won Let’s Dance for Comic Relief in 2009 with his amazing Flashdance routine). Lesser-known ‘stars’ include Matilda ‘Tilly’ Ramsay (chef Gordon’s daughter), Dragons’ Den’s Sara Davies and The Great British Bake Off ’s 2012 winner John Whaite, who is forming half of the first all-male pairing. There has also been significant upheaval on the judging panel, with Bruno Tonioli, 65, unable to join the programme due to international travel restrictions.…

ulrika then & now

Swedish-born Ulrika Jonsson first hit our screens in 1989 as a presenter on breakfast show TV-am, before going on to present hit ITV show Gladiators in 1992. While it may seem like that was just yesterday, the popular ITV show started 29 years ago, meaning Ulrika, 54, has been a permanent fixture for nearly three decades. She’s had a colourful career over the years, from presenting the Eurovision Song Contest and the National Lottery to reality TV stints on Celebrity Big Brother and Dancing on Ice. Nowadays, you’ll find Ulrika being an advocate against ageism and a proud parent to four children. Having been married three times – first to John Turnbull, then Lance Gerrard-Wright and finally Brian Monet – Ulrika hasn’t had the easiest ride. But she’s still smiling. And we’re…

the royal insider

THE CAMBRIDGES UNDER PRESSURE William and Kate’s pledge to help save the planet has raised concerns that the new jewels in the Royal Family’s crown may be spreading themselves too thin. Pressure is mounting on the couple’s diary since Harry and Meghan quit Britain last March. So far the future king and queen appear to have passed the challenge with flying colours, playing a prominent role in the pandemic while balancing duty with the demands of family life. Unsurprisingly, their popularity has soared as they stay true to the Duke of Edinburgh’s mantra, ‘Keep calm and carry on.’ But behind palace doors, there are growing concerns over how this increased responsibility will make an impact on William and Kate in the longer term – can they can sustain this escalating workload while continuing…

how 9/11 changed the world

Twenty years ago, the world watched in horror as the deadliest terror attack unfolded live on TV. As the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center came crashing down in Manhattan on the morning of Tuesday 11 September 2001, it became a date etched in everyone’s memories. We all remember where we were, what we were doing and how we learnt about the unimaginable catastrophe. Who can ever forget those haunting scenes of people jumping from the windows to their death, of the gigantic buildings collapsing in on themselves, and the ash and dust that engulfed the city? On that fateful day, almost 3,000 lives were lost, and in the years that followed, many more innocent people died, including firefighters who suffered long-term effects from ash inhalation, and the many who’ve died…
