The Long Weekend Is Out Now!

I’m thrilled to let y’all know that my second book, The Long Weekend, is out now! The story goes thusly: one house, five days, a truckload of baggage and no shortage of wine. When a group of friends meet up to celebrate their 20-year university reunion, past & present collide in explosive fashion. Will their relationships survive this rollercoaster ride of a long weekend?

World Cup 2014: Who To Support Next?

england-flag-BLOG

As England left the pitch last night after their near-perfect display of mistimed tackles, flapping about and poor first touches, I got to thinking about who I should support now. After all, it’s still the World Cup and I still spent a good chunk of last night cheering on Japan, safe in the knowledge that Columbia were through so nobody was going to get shot. Bitten maybe, but not shot. So now England have limped out, who to support next? For me, it’s all about the players left, who has the best food and where you’ve had the best time…

Celebrity Big Brother 2014: A Bit Tetchy

cbb

Celebrity Big Brother has never been the shy, retiring type has it? It’s the annoying salesperson, the loudmouth showoff, that person in the meeting who just has to say something.

England vs Poland: Brazil Beckons…

Andros Townsend

So after nine fretful games it all comes down to tonight: England vs Poland at Wembley stadium and the chance for the lads to crack out their best samba routines next summer at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. The last time we needed a win to qualify I was at the game – England vs Croatia in 2007 with Euro 2008 beckoning. The rain tipped down in great galloping buckets, Scott Carson had a night to forget, Steve McClaren introduced us to his big brolly and his England team fell at the final hurdle into a damp, depressing heap. Lightning can’t strike twice though, right? Well, at least it’s not forecast for rain…
