Come on celebs, admit you’re a MoneySaver!

I was doing a quick ten minutes on Sky News the other day, and in make-up (yes even with my, ut hmm, flawless skin I get it) was the lovely Kay Burley, the afternoon presenter (and according to her biog, three times voted the ‘most desirable woman’). She leaned over and said to me “I love your...

The truth behind the yellow brick road – according to Channel 4!

I’ve just come back from lunch with Liam Halligan, the economics editor of Channel 4 news. Bit of a catch up, networky type thing.

Over 1 million people came back to BT last year…..

There’s a new trend in utility ads these days. Today I’ve seen both British Gas and British Telecom on the TV flogging ‘welcome back, return to us, we’re not such bad guys’ type of advertising.

Bureaucratic nightmare!

I’ve just calmed down. Nightmare day yesterday. I was just leaving MoneySaving Towers for a meeting, and some little (insert your own swear word) on a bike, grabbed my mobile out of my hand. I chased, even shouted for people to stop him, but I couldn’t catch up. The frustration is immense, it’s not like the phone...

Now I’m a web icon!

Don’t worry my head isn’t getting (even) bigger. I’m just quite chuffed that the techies have developed one of those little icon thingies, so if you have the site in your favourites list we now have our own mini-graphic.
