Be careful what you wish for...
The link forThe One Show is up on iplayer
. My package is 9.18 in.
My youngest daughter met me at the studio. Before arriving she sent a message which read, 'Is the celebrity Johnny Depp? I've told all my friends that knowing my luck it will be Alan Titchmarsh!'
Already there and knowing who the celeb was, I sent one back which read, 'be careful what you wish for!'
The One Show team told me in the green room that they had decided to include the item as they felt the printed media coverage of the bill had been distorted. The studio was full of young people and everyone who spoke to me told me that they had agreed wholeheartedly with the aims and objectives of the bill and they felt strongly that it should be included on the show.
Thanks to everyone on The One Show, especially Melanie and cameraman Neil - lovely professional people who were a pleasure to work with.
And thanks to the 6.35 million viewers who watched and now have a better understanding of what is simply a measure to help young girls reach their life potential.
