My week with Sean Paul

I got to spend the day with Sean Paul last week. He came on Loose Women, right, and it was such a beautiful moment. We both have such an appreciation of our Jamaican heritage and it was amazing for us to be able to bring the culture to daytime TV.

We then filmed the BAFTA award-winning The Lateish Show With Mo Gilligan together, where Michael McIntyre and Ashley Walters were also guests. Honestly, it was a long day, but spending time with all of these legends was worth it. Plus, you get to go home and reflect on these amazing things you have done and the beautiful people you get to spend time with.

I still have to pinch myself that this stuff is happening to me. I stand there thinking, “Is this really what I’m doing?” It is strange.

Sending love to Raheem

I’m so sad to hear the story of Raheem Bailey, the 11-year-old schoolboy who lost his finger while allegedly fleeing racist bullies. I can’t believe we’re hearing things like this at any time, let alone in 2022. I hope Raheem and his family find justice and a way to get over this trauma.

What people don’t understand is that when it comes to bullying and hate crimes, whether it be racist, homophobic, whatever it is, it is life-affecting. Nobody – no matter what their race, cultural background, religion or sexuality – should feel like they can’t live anywhere in the world, especially in the UK. The UK is supposed to be modern and forward-thinking, yet humanity sometimes goes out of the window.

I’m sending so much love to Raheem’s family and anyone else who has been impacted by something like this.

It's party time

I’m looking forward to the jubilee weekend – which is also my birthday weekend! The Platinum Jubilee marks 70 years of service for the Queen, which is just incredible. It’s such a long time but she has been so successful.

She’s had some hard times, as we know, but she has done what a Queen does – which is carry on. I will be surrounded by my family and friends, hopefully with a little bit of sunshine and champagne, like queens do!

Ainsley's example

Sometimes it takes an accident to remind us how we can all look out for one another. This was the case when Ainsley Harriott saved his sister after she fell into a water feature at the Chelsea Flower

Show last week. Everybody got involved to help her and I just really hope she’s on the mend.

It’s scary that it happened but we all need to remember to be mindful of things like that, especially around children and elderly people. All it takes is a trip in the wrong place and you're in danger.

Fingers crossed for a win

I’m excited that Loose Women has been nominated in the daytime category at the National Television Awards. I hope this is our year!

Working with these incredible women, we have covered important topics and done so many things that haven’t been done before in terms of diversity and women leading – even bringing Loose Men to screens. It’s been such a celebratory year for us and a win at the NTAs would be the cherry on the cake.
