Alright, Georgie? You hosted an event to give one Brit a free ride into space. Fancy joining them?
Going to Chessington World of Adventures is full-on for me – space is probably a step too far.
Which celebs would you happily shoot into space?
If they could get a spaceship big enough, how about the whole cast of Made In Chelsea and TOWIE?
You’re not a fan, then?
It’s nonsense. I’ve got mates of mine who are smart, but say: “No, it’s great, you should watch it.” And I’m like: “Guys, this is f****d. It’s not real. What are you doing?”
Harry Styles says you’re his style icon. How does that feel?
That’s about as good as it gets. I met him very briefly at Nick Grimshaw’s birthday and he seemed like a cool guy. He must have a pretty bonkers life at the moment.
Was he surrounded by women trying to rip his clothes off?
He was clothed, but I left early so it may well have gone that way.
Were you happy to be sandwiched between David Walliams and Simon Cowell in a Sexiest Men In Suits poll?
That’s a showbiz powerhouse sandwich right there! But does Simon look that sexy in a suit? Walliams dresses quite well but Cowell’s clobber is a bit suspect if you ask me.

The moment when… Your bag gets searched
You’re heading out for a night on the town, and as usual you’re rushing around, frantically applying make-up and trying to catch the last bit of EastEnders, when your besties call to say they’re outside in the taxi. You chuck everything in your bag and run out of the door. Once at the club you join the queue, stopping to hand over your bag to be searched by a burly man in a high-vis jacket. Mid-rummage he produces your TV remote control. Waving it at you, he asks what it is. He’s not happy, and it’s a case of either you or the remote coming in, but not both. Either way, you lose.
This week we want to be…
Aphrodite, goddess of love
We’re feeling all mushy, so who better to want to be right now than the Greek goddess of saucing it up, Aphrodite?
Her beginnings weren’t that glam, it has to be said. Born after Uranus’ private bits were cut off and thrown into the sea, Aphrodite (meaning “born of the sea foam”), then arose from the water. Luckily for her, she was able to hitch a ride with a passing scallop shell, which took her to shore.
Living with all the other gods on Mount Olympus, Aphrodite was the sexiest goddess out there. In Greek mythology, wherever she went, she provoked feelings of love.
This may sound enviable, but Aph – known as Venus to the Romans – incurred the wrath of Zeus, basically the big daddy of all gods. He thought the others would become violent towards each other in fighting for Aphrodite’s affections. Kind of like an Ancient Greek version of Wetherspoon’s on a Saturday night. So he forced Aphrodite to marry Hephaestus, the god of blacksmiths, who hadn’t been blessed with the same good looks as our Aph.
As if a little thing like getting hitched was going to stop her! Aphrodite was the goddess of love, so it stands to reason that she had many other lovers. These included Ares, the god of war, Adonis, the god of male beauty and desire, and mortal prince Anchises.
She’s basically the only woman in mythology who’s had both men and gods falling at her feet, and for that reason alone, we reckon Aphrodite is well worth wanting to be during this week of lurve.
