Hello to 5-0

Hello Hope everyone is keeping well. I will only be writing this statement once in my whole lifetime. I’ve turned 50! Yes back in January I celebrated the start of a new decade… although when I read some of the biogs about me online, they’ve kindly put me at 51. Hey!! It’s an interesting one […]

December Update

It’s now December and we’re coming to the end of 2016. Seems quite funny to type that. As they say, where have the last 12 months gone? So let’s wrap up this year. You probably know by now I love anything equestrian and The Spanish Riding School of Vienna were back in Blighty, performing at […]

October Update

Hello! Yes, it’s time for an update and I hope you’ve all had a good Summer! So, here we are in October, and already my mind is wandering towards Christmas… Too soon??  Ok.  I’ll hold that thought and update you on the last few months. I’m a true Spring/Summer girl and this year didn’t disappoint. […]

June 2016 Update

So it’s early June, the weather has improved again thank goodness, and I’m sitting in my hotel room in Norfolk looking out over the most beautiful woodland.  I’m on location for Escape to the Country and when the weather, county and houses all work in unison, it has to be one of the best jobs […]

April Blog

Hello Spring has sprung and I think the weekend was the warmest so far this year! How are we all?  Last time I wrote, I’d just started my 6 weeks of Lent which I’m pleased to say is now well and truly over.  No bread, no alcohol, no sweets, no chocolate.  Boy, was I fun […]

August Update

So it’s August and I’ve decided to have a mini break in the sun with one of my dearest friends… and as I sit here typing the rain is lashing down and we’ve had thunder and lightening… and I’m not even in the UK! I’ve just realised I haven’t updated my blog properly since at least […]

BBC Radio 2mail Highlights

Hi, Nicki C with you on 2mail duties for the first time. I’ve had a wonderful time sitting in for Lady V in the mornings over the last few weeks. As I began my career in the music biz, I can’t tell you what a treat it is to be part of Radio 2 and […]

The Chelsea Flower Show

Being part of the BBC1 presenting team for the RHS Chelsea Flower Show is one of my favourite jobs in the year – in fact I’d go as far as saying it’s the jewel in my presenting crown! Chelsea is such a heady mix of glamour and celebrity, drama, art and most importantly world class horticulture. Here are a […]

Update from April 2015

So as I sit here typing, it’s certainly warming up and my garden is beginning to look more like a garden … at last. When the weather changes for the better, it certainly makes filming up and down the country for ‘Escape…’ a lot more pleasurable. My first admission is I failed with Lent this […]

March 2015 update

Well March is now with us and as I sit and type, the sun is shining and spring has nearly, very nearly, sprung. It’s been a really interesting start to the year with plenty of travels to places I’m not overly familiar with.  I was delighted when P & O invited me once again to […]
