It’s been a busy few weeks for me, and I am unable to wait to inform you what I have been as much as – from hanging out with cleaning soap favourites, to getting the proper glow, and naturally, all of the Celebrity Big Brother drama.
I had my very own historical past with Roxanne Pallett
It was Manchester Pride just lately, and as an envoy for the charity I all the time really feel so proud to be part of it. As effectively as watching a few of the acts (Rita Ora was my standout favorite this yr), I took half within the Soap Star Games at New York, New York Bar together with solid members from Hollyoaks, Coronation Street and Emmerdale.
It was such a enjoyable day and nice to meet up with previous pals, particularly Hayley Tamaddon, who like me, firmly supported Ryan Thomas in Celebrity Big Brother.
My coronary heart has gone out to Ryan after watching the present, however in gentle of what he was accused of, I’ve to say I really feel he has dealt with himself with grace, dignity and gentlemanly loveliness in what should’ve been extraordinarily troublesome and worrying circumstances.
Like many others, I’ve my very own historical past with Roxanne that in the end didn’t finish properly, however as I like this weblog to encourage positivity I gained’t dwell on it. Instead, I’m wishing Ryan nothing however luck and happiness and I stay up for seeing the thrilling issues the longer term holds for him.
Feeling tanned and terrific!
I’ll be sincere, getting a sprig tan each week as a part of my job is fairly superb. From the day I joined Hollyoaks, it was determined that Scott Drinkwell ought to all the time sport a deep, darkish tan – so for the previous 4 years I’ve been perma-tanned just about continuously.
Don’t get me incorrect, I’m not complaining. Even within the darkest months of December, I seem like I’ve simply had three weeks swinging in a hammock on a Caribbean island.
The draw back although is that my poor white shirts and mattress sheets can typically seem like I’ve been wrestling with creosote. Well, my pals, due to a suggestion by Rylan Clark-Neal, I’ve discovered a brand new tan that’s turn into a little bit of recreation changer – Tan Luxe.
Their merchandise have been developed with one thing known as ‘clear tanning’ which implies that the tan is evident and so, doesn’t come off in physique formed orange patches in your bedding or white shirts. I’ve been utilizing it for every week now and I’ll undoubtedly be shopping for it once more.
Attending a really magical night
Phil and I went alongside to the Wish Upon A Star charity ball in Manchester, which was some of the inspiring and humbling occasions I’ve ever been to. Hearing concerning the superb work the charity does in granting needs for youngsters with debilitating and life-threatening sicknesses made it a very emotional night time and motivated me to get entangled with extra charity work.
My pretty co-star Nikki Sanderson is a patron of the charity and over £200,000 was raised on the night time for this very particular trigger. Paddy McGuiness hosted the night with Vernon Kay on the decks as DJ – and he performed some actual bangers that saved me, Phil, Steph Waring and Nicole Barber-Lane dancing all night time. I don’t assume any of us wished the night time to finish.
With youngsters going again to highschool, lots of you studying this may simply get a bit of further ‘you time’ this week. If like me, you’re a giant reader, I urge you to take a look at Rachaele Hambleton’s e book ‘Part Time Working Mummy’ which particulars her experiences of single parenthood, home violence, sudden being pregnant and being a stepmum. If you’re a mum or step-mum and have a chaotic patchwork household, this e book proves that even probably the most dysfunctional households might be superb when you fill your property with love.
Until subsequent week, a lot love. And be form. Ross x
