It’s been an absolute pleasure to work with @womensprize for the last year to bring you our NatWest Young Adult Reading List of brilliant female authors every month, with thanks to @natwest. And last but not least, for August, get your teeth stuck into Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games. Discover the post-apocalyptic dystopian nation of Panem and meet the story’s heroine Katniss Everdeen who is forced to enter a terrifying reality TV show with only one rule: kill or be killed. Whether or not you’ve seen the movies, I’d strongly suggest you give this a read this summer, enjoy and let me know how you get on! Thanks so much for following our #youngadultreadinglist all year, I really hope you’ve devoured a whole bunch of books that you’ve loved! 📚 #ad

PLAYING CATCH-UP

A wise friend once told me, “hey, Vick, it’s way better when you blog really infrequently, but when you do, just collate everything that’s happened over that long period of time into one piece so I don’t have constant reminders of new stuff you’re doing, just occasional, less annoying overviews”. Other friends – granted, those probably considerably more savvy in the …

BACK TO REALITY

A tenuously-named blog about my post-Cuban-jaunt return to work, which mainly entailed interviewing some of reality TV’s finest, as well as Single-Ladies-hand-flapping with Rebel Wilson, and testing Sacha Baron Cohen’s nob(by knowledge)… GRIMSBY   …so let’s start with that, because it is pretty much the furthest you can get from anyone’s conception of reality ever.

THREE SIX FIVE

Happy New Year,* ya filthy animals. I’m back from gallivanting around Cuba and back to gallivanting around assorted television studios. While away, the lovely lot at Three Six Five Club posted this feature from an interview I did with them last year. TSFC is an awesome site to browse through, providing “interviews and features with unique, inspiring and brilliant women – …

ON YER BIKE

Thanks to the brilliant production team and crew from Cyclevox, last weekend I made my first foray into the world of cycling (who knew?!), presenting coverage of The 2015 Jupiter London Nocturne for Channel 4, Eurosport and Sky Sports, alongside Jonathan Edwards and Rob Hayles. Well, technically, Jonathan and Rob talked cycling, I talked all the other stuff. The Nocturne is …

THAT’S NOT ME

A huge congratulations to the team behind That’s Not Me, a short film I presented recently exploring the effects of airbrushing, which has been awarded the BBC Award for Factual Entertainment at Visions Festival 2015. We investigated the use of retouching in fashion, advertising and media, meeting fashion photographer Jose Pope (jphotography.org.uk) and Kara Eschbach, co-founder of Verily Magazine, the only …
