Val and I spent a few days last week in Llandudno, which was lovely.

We had a beautiful sea view from our hotel and spent our time wandering the shops and walking the promenade.

We even had our very first ride on a cable car up to the top of the Great Orme which was quite something!

At the top we stopped off at the Randolph Turpin (the undisputed middle weight boxing champion of the world) bar for a browse around the memorabilia before heading back down to relax on the beach.

It was a lovely little and much needed break. We are already planning our next little break to Anglesey for next month!

I’ve also had a few self-tapes auditions this week and an audition in Manchester for a television commercial, which was great fun to do.

I’ll let you know if I am successful!

I’m putting all my energy into my acting career at the moment and it’s really starting to pay off.

I have more auditions lined up so I will keep you all posted.

The highlight for me and my Val this week was receiving a very special visitor to our house.

I was thrilled to meet and welcome into the world our perfect and beautiful little baby niece Isla.

The miracle of new life really puts everything into perspective.

I hope you will all join me in welcoming Isla to the world and especially to Trafford.

We wish both Isla and her parents all the very best and look forward to getting to know our youngest family member as she grows up.

I know it’s hard to think about Christmas while it’s still Summer, but I’ve already got some bookings in for Christmas events and parties and some of them are public events that I am donating my time to.

I will let you know all the dates nearer the time.

I know I’m concentrating on my acting at the moment but I am still available for singing performances.

So if you are having a Christmas event, or any other occasion and require a vocalist of my style, please do get in touch.
