And now for something completely different.

Life is very exciting right now; I've settled into life as a Bunny which is ticking on nicely, so I can finally focus on my own projects! The screenplay I have written, currently dubbed "Laura Tolton" is meandering nicely - we're looking at casting - I will be auditioning for Laura, bien sur, and we're going to have a reading as soon as we can fuse our schedules. Nostrings Productions will be pulling in a couple of talented close friends, which means rehearsals will be an absolute blast!

My producer, Danny John Williams and I have a very similar vision for the film which is fantastic - and it already has a very bizarre history involving daytime drinking (roof top rum), an unknown and un-met artist, a psychic forecast and a gypsy - surreal or what?

Nostrings are currently entering a short film into the Virgin Media Shorts Competition - please welcome 'Archie'. The beautiful composition is by John Hamilton, and the writer and director is Danny himself. Have a look, have a listen, and share it if you 'like' it :-)

10 minutes with Hugh Hefner | ES Magazine

He has been described as many things, but nowadays he's a one woman, silver-tongued legend. Some of the girls had been longing to meet The Hef; I respected his input into the history of performing arts - to take risks and to follow his instinct, and I thought he had been a canny business man, but I hadn't really considered the prospect of a meeting. I was having too much fun getting to grips with Roulette in Mayfair! The parties, the nights out, the girls and pocket money have proved really rather distracting . .

Playboy has returned to Mayfair . . .

Last night marked the return of Playboy to London, with the Official Launch Party attended by Hugh Hefner, his nearest and dearest, mates old and new, and a few of London's names and faces. It was sparkly, exciting, absolutely packed - and, of course, controversial.

At about 7pm things started to get really exciting for us Bunnies, as the casino tables were closed and ice sculptures, candy floss machines and miniture popcorn buckets made an appearance. Oh, and the chanting started. A few of us made our way to the window of the sports bar from where we had a great view of about 100 protestors waving the witty and innovative 'Eff Off Hef' banners. My personal favourite was a double-sider, with one side reading "THIS IS WHAT A FEMINIST LOOKS LIKE".

For the record, I am yet to meet a Playboy Bunny who has been captured from the streets and forced into the gloriously theatrical Bunny suit. It is a career choice that is supporting artists, writers, actors, presenters, models, students and business women. So I would like to direct a few choice comments to the Eff Off Hef campaigners; do your research, get your facts right, find a cause that is of real importance and please, don't judge a woman on her Bunny costume.

Slum Civilians - they know how to dance.

They sure do, choreography from Luther Dyer is fresh and innovative - and the dance is tight - but at the same time it retains a real spontaneous urban feel.

Check them out with Leather and Chains . . .
