With over £26,000 raised this evening (Saturday Nov 18th) I think we can all agree Strictly Queenscourt was FAB-U-LOUS!

Tonight was so special for so many reasons.

Queenscourt Hospice helps so many in my local community, many friends and family have been aided by their support over the years, most recently my adored and very missed teacher Joyce Court - so when asked if I would co host their first ever Strictly for Queenscourt it was an immediate YES. (That and Hayley Jones wouldn’t have spoken to me ever again!) partnered with the fabulous Ian Lawson we had a (glitter) ball introducing Judges, raffles and the most spectacular contestants.

All of which wowed us with their incredible performances … but I have to unleash my serious pride for my cousin Sophie Horne, who looked so beautiful dancing a flawless tango. She scored 40 out of 40 but just got pipped to the post by an equally deserving Josh Barnes.

Sophie, you looked so fabulous out there this evening I honestly couldn’t be more proud of all you’ve accomplished this year and every year I love you … and I love that this evening brought all Nanas girls together dancing you are a winner to us all.

To everyone involved, (too many to mention) but must highlight Liz and Kaz…be exceptionally proud of yourselves , raising over £26k for the most deserving of charity’s - you are all FAB-U-LOUS!!!

Also thanks to the Prince of Wales Hotel, they’ve really changed people’s perceptions tonight, the ballroom is restored to its former glory and the events team couldn’t do enough for us. Thank you Litsa Smith, Kaz Tindell-Watkins and others who I sadly am unable to tag, you really have surpassed all expectations and put the Prince back on the map as a wonderful local venue.
