Now, I’d like to think that my house is pretty clean. It might not always be tidy, but it’s clean… Or is it? On p32 this week, Woman looks at how dirty our houses really are – and I’m not sure my once-a-week hoover round the living room cuts the mustard. But who has time to vacuum once a day or more? Not me. And as for the bed sheets… is two weeks acceptable, or will it have clean queens Kim and Aggie raging? The latter, I fear. OK, perhaps my house isn’t quite as clean as I thought it was. So how do you measure up? Come on, don’t make me feel bad!…

what a week!

AMANDA ‘I’M COMING FOR YOUR JOB, TESS!’ Tess Daly may be quaking in her dancing shoes after Amanda Holden suggested that she’s after her job as main host on Strictly Come Dancing. Sharing a picture of herself working with fellow TV presenter Davina McCall, Amanda joked, ‘Exciting project on the way. (Oh and if Tess Daly & Claudia Winkleman need a night off…)’ Amanda, who is mum to daughters Lexi and Hollie, is already a judge on rival shows Britain’s Got Talent and I Can See Your Voice, so it’s hardly surprising that she might be after a spot on Strictly. The presenter also hinted last year that she’d like to join the show, saying, ‘I would 100% do the Christmas special and would 100% go and sing on there. I love watching it.’ Watch…

they re coming home’

Harry and Meghan are planning to return home in what aides describe to me as another sign the royal rift may be easing. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have told friends they are ‘desperate’ to show their new daughter off to the Queen after naming her Lilibet (Her Majesty’s childhood nickname) in her honour. IS THE FAMILY RIFT EASING? It remains to be seen if Harry will fly to London to accompany as they a statue of their late mother, Diana, at Kensington Palace on 1 July (see my column on p11 for more). If he does, that may not be his last visit this year, with a family return being considered for late autumn. There has been a question mark, as the rift between the brothers has deepened, over whether Harry might…

‘life’s too short’

For Jane McDonald, the last few months have been utterly heartbreaking. Having agonised through multiple pandemic lockdowns with the rest of the country, she suffered her most devastating blow in March when her fiancé of 13 years, Eddie Rothe, passed away following a battle with lung cancer. After taking time out of the spotlight to grieve, Jane announced that the current series of Channel 5’s popular travel show, Cruising with Jane McDonald, would be her last – after an impressive 20 series. ‘If we know anything about what has happened in the past year, it’s that life is too short,’ explains Jane. ‘This has taught me that life is for living, and I will live it even more when we are allowed again.’ Riding the waves The decision to leave behind her most…

will harry boycott diana’s memorial?

One thing William and Harry have always seen eye to eye on is their shared belief that their mother’s life should be remembered. As young adults they would discuss ways of making her legacy live on, rather than be airbrushed out of history. ‘IT WILL BE A DOUBLE TRAGEDY’ Ten years after her death, the boys held a ‘Concert for Diana’ at Wembley Stadium, which raised millions for their charities and helped remind the world of her tragic loss. But a decade later, on the 20th anniversary in 2017, the brothers agreed there should be a more permanent memorial to Diana, one that would stand the test of time. It was in the months after the 20th anniversary that William and Harry devised a plan to have a statue made in her honour. This, they…

wimbledon wonder women

Steffi Graf Steffi was arguably one of the best. During her career she broke numerous records, one of them being ranked No.1 in the world for a total of 377 weeks between 1987 and 1997! She’s the only player in history to have claimed each major title at least four times and is the only woman to sweep all four of tennis’ majors in one season. As she retired at 30, German-born Steffi – now 51 – said, ‘Once there was nothing more to achieve, my motivation was gone.’ Venus Williams Like her sibling, Venus also held the title of World No.1 in both singles and doubles. The 41-year-old’s first Grand Slam came when she won Wimbledon in 2000 and she’s now earned a combined total of 23 Grand Slam titles. As well…
