My Edinburgh Fringe Diary

  • 19 Aug 2016

I’ve spent this week at the Edinburgh Festival. Last year virtually everything I saw was a comedy or had some political tinge to it. Several of my friends said I should spread my wings this year and go to some plays too. So I booked to see the ‘Chronicles of Narnia’! Oh dear. ...

TV Review: Peston on Sunday

  • 8 May 2016

I’m told that only a couple of months ago, ITV executives were pulling their hair out over Peston on Sunday. No one seemed to have the faintest idea what the programme should be, let along its contents. The only certain thing was that Peston on Sunday was its name and the sta...

I Really Wanted to Like the US 'House of Cards' But I Don't

  • 22 Dec 2014

Ok, I’m late to the party. I meant to watch House of Cards when it was shown on Sky Atlantic, but somehow didn’t. I’ve had the DVD on my shelf for two years but somehow it’s always been overtaken by something else – Covert Affairs, 24 and others. Anyway, a couple of nights ag...

Theatre Review: Handbagged by Maggie & The Queen

  • 14 Apr 2014

A play consisting of two Margaret Thatchers and two Queens and precious little else, well that’ll never work I thought when I first heard about HANDBAGGED. How wrong could I have been! I am not sure if HANDBAGGED is meant to be a relatively serious commentary on the relation...

Theatre review: Mamma Mia Still As Good As Ever

  • 12 Apr 2014

I don’t get to go to the theatre much nowadays due to the fact that my radio show finishes at 8, and I am rarely in London at the weekend. So because I was presenting the LBC Breakfast Show last week, I decided to go totally overboard and on Thursday I went to not just one sh...

An Evening of Taboos and Dogging With 'Fascinating Aida'

  • 9 Mar 2014

How is it that ‘Fascinating Aida’ rarely get on television, when vastly inferior acts do? Having just seen them perform in Norwich it’s a question which continues to baffle me. I emerged from the Theatre Royal with my cheekbones aching, as did the rest of the audience. How co...

The Ugly Side of Britain's Got Talent

  • 1 Jun 2013

Like millions of others I am gripped by Britain’s Got Talent. But I do wonder how responsible it is to put very young children on a stage like this. In Tuesday’s semi-final, the first three places were taken by children under the age of 14. There’s no denying that they were a...
