From the I Newspaper today.

So last night went to see half of my flash mob ladies perform in rehearsal – and they did a grand job.
I am very happy with the way that this is all shaping up although, as mentioned, there are so many things that can go wrong on the day.. am I wrong to be enjoying that?
It’s a complicated little story that I am trying to convey and hopefully will mark World Cancer Day 4th February (Eastbourne) in the right way!
