    It's been a long time since I first joined the boards and I took a few years off, but I'm back with a vengeance now!

    (Technically I appeared on TWO shows - once in the audience and once in my own little segment - which was filmed insanely early in the morning and it was freezing. It was the only time they would let us film so the whole crew and Martins co-presenter came out insanely early after a night in a B&B to film lol I thought it was bad enough getting up waaaay before dawn personally )

    I did a google and I'm GRATEFUL I can't find a copy of my clip lol It would only remind me of how much weight I've gained
