Sequins, fake tan and extreme rambling.......

This week on the Sunday Hangover I was joined by two great guests.


First up was Strictly Come Dancing professional Karen Hardy. I met up with Karen at her dance studios in West London and we caught up on what she thinks of the current series, Ann Widdecombe, fake tans and what she thinks I need to do to trip the light fantastic on the dance floor. She also told me about her experiences teaching celebrities to dance for Strictly and why she enjoys teaching others so much all over the world.

Comedian Mark Thomas also joined me to talk about his new stand up show Extreme Rambling which is on at Colchester Arts Centre on 25th and 26th January. In the show, Mark tells the story of his walk along the separation barrier which has been built along the border between Israel and Palestine. As someone famous for his politicial comedy and activism, Mark and I also talked about the recent students fees protests and the protests to highlight tax injustice.


If you’re interested in seeing Mark in action, you can contact Colchester Arts Centre on 01206 500900.


See you next week!
