one of the Best Bloopers of my career - you couldn't make it up!
15 September 2016

When you've had over thirty years in TV you inevitably come up against some mishaps live on air. Apart from the infamous NoNo cream blooper that made it on to it'll be Alright on the Night, this classic just popped up on youtube - one of the most unbelievable bloopers ever! #couldntMakeItUp! lol - it genuinely happened this way too! Watch...

Anyway, hope you've had a good week - how amazing has this weather been? From sultry sweltering days to storm-ridden nights. This was the rain outside my back door on Thursday night - click here. The choccies were not very happy with the thunder, so I gave them lots of hugs!

Book of the Week Please Don’t Stop the Music by Jane Lovering – she writes a witty tale, so I’ve started listening to another by her on audiobook – more here on my Read it Write it Sell it blog on my website - plus info about the York writing festival. AND how to join me on the next Julie Cohen writing retreat for writers in Bristol in March!

Sugar escapes thru the 1960s net as industry pays experts to demonise saturated fat instead. Regulars will know how I've been writing on health topics for several years now, on my Back to You health blogs on my website. Well, one of the topics that's always befuddle dme is why it took so long for the Health Departments to realise about sugar. Well, this week it all came out.

It's official - they've released previously unseen papers showing that there was a deliberate ploy to divert attention away from sugar. It was back in the 1960s, in some of the earliest studies - when they could have stated it was sugar as well as Saturated fat which was at the heart of the health problems. They didn't, and so set the wheels in motion away from the worst culprit, blaming just fat, wrongly, and resulting in the exact opposite of the target to cut soaring health problems and cut cases of metabolic syndrome. The cases have increased since 1982 when the US FDA announced fat was to blame and 'low fat' foods began replacing the missing taste with more and more sugar . So if you still know someone who keeps saying 'this is good it's low fat', get them to do some research, including watching 'sugar the bitter truth' or my guide 'aids to cutting back sugar' on my website. Here's the full New York Times report read it here.

On a lighter note, I'm really excited because of a new project I'm working on - and of course getting my book French or Dutch finished to go off to a few specific people who are waiting for it. More soon - or soonish!

And here's the latest QVC blog - if you like finding out about offers before other people - go here to see tons of  sneaky peeks and a funny blooper from my hilarious mate Charlie Brook this week on air. See it all here.

Am off to a wedding at the weekend - let's hope the rain holds off! Then to Devon till Tuesday - squeee!

Have a fab week.
