Divorce Clinic on This Morning
Earlier today I appeared on ITV This Morning, answering viewers’ questions for the programme’s Divorce Clinic. You can watch here.
The questions were quite varied and hosts Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes certainly kept me on my toes. I never know for sure what questions will be asked, so I have to be prepared for a variety. Today, viewers’ questions were still arriving as I was walking onto the set. The upside was that I got to meet one of my favourite actors: Jake Canuso from the TV comedy series Benidorm. He is a brilliant actor, very funny and was today’s “Mystery Chef.”
Unusually, I had a fantastic train journey from Yorkshire to London. There were electrical storms along the route, and the stop after mine was flooded and impassable – but as if by magic, another train appeared at Leeds on the next platform to travel by a different route! The journey was only delayed by 20 minutes. I can’t ever remember this happening before. I can certainly remember previous occasions when I have stuck on a London train for several hours, at a standstill miles from anywhere, wondering if I’d ever get there. The journey yesterday was nothing short of miraculous!
When I arrived at King’s Cross, the taxi queue was manned by two officials who called me “Madam” – even though I looked a real scruff in a tracksuit, trainers and wearing no make-up – and who helped me into my cab. I was amazed. Let me tell you, I love the Olympics. Not only is our wonderful Team GB slogging it out for all of us, but travel into London has been totally transformed!
Every day, nearly 70,000 people are passing through King’s Cross on their way to and from the Olympic Park. I hope, I so hope, that when the Olympics and Paralympics are over, travel into London, King’s Cross in particular, doesn’t quite return to normal…
