Is blogging a real job? It was a question I was pondering yesterday wearing a net rara skirt, having my Eighties make up applied and hair back-combed in the ante room of a baptist church in Aylesbury. As you do.

My son was with me, and wore a mixture of pride and horror – er OK, mostly horror – not least because all this was going on in the room where a clutch of children (including him) were waiting with clammy hands and blanched faces for their Royal College of Music exams. Even worse, my son’s piano accompanist didn’t turn up, so I had to go and accompany him looking like a middle aged tramp.

Anyway, the reason for the get-up was that I was interiewing the touring cast of Fame The Musical, which opened last night at the Aylesbury Waterside Theatre and is running until Saturday. Here I am at the AWT in my make-up, with the lovely Thame-based MUA Rachael Parrey

So here you go, check out the video blog. Yet more evidence why a TV career continues to elude me though I think you’ll agree that I have a future in dance.

PS Thank you to my intrepid cameraman Olly Ross ( You rock!
