Giovanna's dreaming a little dream

Giovanna Fletcher, the other half of Tom from McBusted, will talk to Lorraine about life as mum to their one-year old son, Buzz, becoming a social media guru and writing her third novel Dream A Little Dream.

High school sweethearts, Giovanna met husband Tom on her first day at Silvia Young's Theatre School when she was just 13 years old. She laughs and says that Tom said he knew instantly that they'd be together but she wasn't so sure. "I said, 'my name's Giovanna but you can call me G.' He said, 'my name's Tom but you can call me T.' Rubbish chat up line but it worked, we got married 10 years later!"

Giovanna says of juggling life as a busy mum, vlogger and author, "Everyday is a balance. There are some days where it just flows and others where I'm constantly texting my mother in law!"

Book: Dream A Little Dream is out now.

I have two left feet but I'd be up for appearing on Strictly.

– Chesney Hawkes

Best known for his 1991 hit single, One and Only, Chesney Hawkes is back on our screens as a contestant in this year's Celebrity MasterChef.

But can he actually cook? He joins us today to talk all about it!

Chesney has previously appeared on The Games and Dancing on Ice and said of his past experience of reality shows: “I have had an operation on my hip after a waterski jumping accident in The Games. I very much broke my leg and ankle doing Dancing on Ice so yeah my wife was not happy about that and she said, 'well if you do Masterchef please don’t burn the place down or set yourself on fire or chop a finger off!'”

Chesney also reveals he's still working in music, recording from his home studio in LA. And says while he has 'two left feet' he would like to appear in Strictly Come Dancing.

He says: “If I accepted that one there would be a lot of laughs. A bit of dad dancing at weddings and things [but that’s it].”

Celebrity MasterChef is on Thursday's on BBC One at 9pm.
