Now there’s something you have to understand. The website isn’t just my baby, I sort of feel linked to it. Today after doing Radio 2’s Jeremy Vine show on mobile phones, the traffic was huge and the site crashed. Yet it didn’t just crashed, it got damaged and it’s been down all afternoon on one of the...
I’ve just had to record some fart noises (made with my mouth). I can’t yet tell you why… all will be revealed in a week. Yet I have to say, if you’re ever in a bad mood there’s nothing like having to make farty noises in an office to make everyone just sit there and laugh!!!!! Listen...
TV is a strange business. ITV news came round to my house this morning to interview me on Child Trust Funds. As I’ve recently moved in, I’m a little short on movable seating (big sofa yes, spare chairs not yet). This meant that while they asked me to sit, the producer had to stand. Now when you...
Not fair. I just got asked onto my first ‘celeb’ type programme. My agent called up and asked me about doing BBC1’s ‘Star Spell’. Yet I am abysmal at spelling, truly apaling, and I would embarrass myself tremendously. So I had to say no. Gutted. (Why couldn’t it be a numbers one? Or even a spelling numbers...
In the naive world of pub drinking this weekend the conversation turned to ‘how to get a good seat on Easyjet?’. Now of course famously the airliner doesn’t allocate seats, so it’s a rush and grab job. The analysis done resembled chaos theory and The Prisoner’s dilemma intertwined. Yet by the virtue of blogging, I thought I...
Lots of site users contact me saying “can you use your media power to….”. The requests are endless… ‘punish Barclays’, ‘have a national nit-check day’, ‘tell everyone about this scam’ (often something I’ve told people about 20 times already). Yet even if I had time to deal with these things, I’m afraid to say I can’t actually...
Well this afternoon’s been a distraction and thankfully we’ve just heard no one was injured in any of the attacks. MoneySaving towers is based in Sheperds Bush, just a few hundred meters from the station. Now the talk has turned from fear to transport, how will everyone get home. My strongest personal bomb memories centres on three....
Just received an email from Rosie Millard (ex-BBC arts correspondent, and now presenter/buy to let columnist). I’m really pleased about it. As many of you will know from past blogs on 25 April and 24 May I did a makeover on Rosie a few months ago for Tonight with Trevor MacDonald. The show itself was mainly about...
This blog entry was delayed by three weeks until I was officially allowed to talk about the series. I wrote it at the time, but didn’t publish it. I found out last night I’ve got my own TV series for ITV1. I’m gobsmacked. I’ve always wanted my own series, with the freedom to talk about the stuff...
“In accordance with Section 1 of the Road Traffic Offenders Act 1988, notice is herreby given that proceedings are contemplated against the driver of” I’ve just received this in the post. How ridiculous. I’m a careful driver, I don’t take risks, and I don’t speed. So why did I get this letter, which reads like I’m about...

3 January 2024It is a national tragedy that getting on for a million pensioners, many of whom have been paying into the system for years, are missing out on a critical boost to their income. It's called pension credit, and this year it also means you get an extra £650 to help with energy bills.
