Konnie Huq Wins An Award

Konnie Huq and James Nesbitt
Konnie Huq has won an award. Okay, not a very good one but it's still an award. She won a Morgan Award. "A what?" you may ask. It's something to do with Piers Morgan and, as he's very full of himself, he gave the trophy his name.

The awards are all about getting back at celebs who slap themselves on the back when going to more notable award occasions. So what did Konnie win hers for?

Not too sure if it's very clear but this is what Piers said, "My first Morgan goes to someone who told me just before she left Blue Peter, 'I can’t think how to do it with a bang. Richard Bacon did drugs, Peter Duncan did porn, Janet Ellis did unmarried pregnancy, I’m left with bestiality, but I think that might be a bit strong for Blue Peter…'"

Konnie Huq's award was titled PUTTING THE BLUE INTO BLUE PETER.

On receiveing the Morgan Award Konnie uttered, "I have never won anything in my life. So to be winning the best of the best tonight is a great honour. I’m speechless, thank you."

I guess you had to be there!

The Purple Konnie Huq Sweetie Wasn't Stolen

Konnie Huq purple party dressMy favourite Quality Street chocolate is always the one with the purple wrapper - it's hazelnut and soft caramel. I got to thinking about this when I saw this photo of Konnie Huq and her purple party frock.

And while thinking about sweets Konnie has categorically denied that she ever stole sweets from Woolworths.

It seems that the Mirror reported Konnie as saying that in the past she had taken pick'n'mix sweeties from Woolies without paying. Dear old Valerie Singleton got a bit hot under the collar about this and criticised her for condoning theft.

Konie was misquoted in the original Mirror article. To make things clear she said, "I want to set the record straight. I probably said I love Woolies pick 'n' mix, I bet many a child can remember stealing sweets from there."

Sorted! Purple ones are always the best.

Konnie Huq Would Never Say Never

Konnie HuqKonnie Huq has given an interview to the Mirror and was asked if she ever felt like doing something drastic to shed her goody-goody image. Konnie answered:

"If I wore a low-cut dress or showed my cleavage or did lad’s mags, people would make such a big deal. That has stopped me from doing it, but I would if it felt right. Maybe I could do some indie film and get my kit off. I’d never say never."

She's obviously quite domesticated though and this was the last thing she did in that direction:

"I sewed on a button. That sounds really crap, doesn’t it? But it was a complicated button …"

Enough said! Full interview here.

Konnie Huq loves eating ice cream wearing her high heels and stockings!

Ice cream, it seems, is one of her simple pleasures. Konnie said, "There's nothing better than being at home eating Ben & Jerry's chocolate ice cream on the sofa. I'm a big chocolate fan too, I like chilling out with comfort food. It's great when you can kick back and watch TV."

Okay, so I lied about the stockings and high heels!

The Sexy Dresses Of Konnie Huq And Zoe Salmon

Zoe Salmon low cut red dressWhat a fuss the tabloids made of Zoe Salmon's dress. The one she wore to a Coronation Street party a few days ago.

"What's this all got to do with Konnie Huq," you may ask.

Not an awful lot really but the Zoe dress is a similar occasion as 'the' Konnie dress - the one she wore to the Spiderman 3 premiere.

The dresses are simply a way of signifying to the public and media that these are two sexy women who have finished with kids' shows and now want to be part of the adult world. It's like being released from a restrictive institution - they are free to do as they now please.

It's also a good excuse to have another look at Konnie Huq in that dress!

It seems that Konnie Huq's sister Rupa Huq is an aspiring Labout Member of Parliament. So much so that she has been giving advice on how to belittle the Conservative leader David Cameron.

She reckons the easiest is to say that he's like Tony Blair!

Rupa enlarged on this by saying, "Cameron tries to present himself as an everyman who takes simple family holidays in Cornwall - while enjoying rather more exclusive jaunts on the sly."

Will Konnie Huq Expose The Blue Peter Sexy Secrets

There has been gossip that Konnie Huq will write a book spilling all the secrets and scandal about Blue Peter.

Over 10 years she obviously saw and heard a lot about the show. She knew, for example, about Valerie Singleton's ding dong with Peter Purves before it became public knowledge. But there are many more skeletons in the cupboard just waiting to be let loose.

Konnie told the Daily Star, for example, "I do know lots and lots of secrets about Blue Peter but I’m very good at keeping them. You can read about them when I publish my book." Can't really see her doing this though.

In the meantime Konnie has been involved with Piers Morgan, in a productive way with npower.

The electricity company held a Green SOS Academy competition on enviromental problems for schools. Children from the schools' finalists attended a workshop hosted by Konnie Huq. Piers Morgan was on hand to talk about how to use the media to help promote the enviromental cause. The photo below shows Konnie and Piers at the event. More info here.

Konnie Huq Meets The Queen

Konnie Huq at Buckingham Palace"Time for tea," said the Queen and Konnie Huq, along with other ex Blue Peter presenters, went inside Buckingham Palace.

The occasion was the 50th anniversary of Blue Peter so we saw the likes of Konnie Huq with John Noakes, Lesley Judd, Peter Purvis, Diane-Louise Jarvis and Valerie Singleton line up to be presented to the monarch.

And, of course, tea wouldn't be tea without cake. The royal chef baked a big one with white ice and the blue and white ship Blue Peter logo.

A good time was had by all.

Konnie Huq Wears Her Blue Peter Badge For 50th Anniversary

Konnie Huq with Blue Peter badgeIt's nearly time for Blue Peter to celebrate it's anniversary. Next month it will be 50 years old, yes it started way back in 1958.

Konnie Huq was with Blue Peter for 10 of those years and has been reflecting on her time on the program. She told Weekend magazine:

"The most memorable moment - and there were many - has to be returning to the Bangladeshi village in which many of my family had lived. I met members of my extended family and I remember thinking, 'If my parents hadn't come over to Britain, I'd be living in the village now.' It was bizarre, but extremely moving to film there."

Konnie went on to say, "I often say I feel 22 not 33 because those ten years of my life have been consumed with Blue Peter. The team became like my family and it was hard to say goodbye."

Konnie Huq: Could She Have Been Wonder Woman?

Konnie Huq as Wonder WomanKonnie Huq Wonder WomanKonnie Huq has been telling Henry Deedes of the Independent as to how her life may have worked out differently.

Konnie originally wanted to be an actress but felt that there weren't many suitable roles for Asian girls. She told Henry:
"That's how I started out. I was in the National Youth Music Theatre with Jude Law, Matt Lucas – those sorts of people – about 10 years ago. Asians could not get a part except as a repressed daughter on EastEnders – no period dramas, nothing. I could try now but I wouldn't know what to do. I'm a presenter now."

Konnie Huq's Best Holiday Hotel

Konnie Huq has been talking to Deany Judd of the Telegraph about her holiday experiences.

The best hotel she's stayed in? This is what she said:
"It was next to Ayers Rock in Australia. It felt like we were in the middle of nowhere, the scenery was stunning and we had dinner on a beautiful balcony – and when you looked up the sky was full of constellations. The rooms were amazing too – the beds were as wide as they were long. It just felt like a really special place."


Konnie May Do Lads Mags Pics - If Times Get Hard

Konnie Huq may do lads magsKonnie Huq has again said that she wouldn't absolutely rule out posing for lads mags.

She told the Sun:
"It’s annoying. After you leave Blue Peter people think you’re rolling in it, but it’s not that well paid compared to outside.

All the offers you get from, say, lads mags or bingo on ITV pay a lot of money.

But then you have to turn them down on grounds of integrity because your agent says you’ll be slated.

I can never say never because I might have to pay the mortgage.

If it’s a cool shoot and tasteful, then maybe. You’ll know when you see it that times are hard!"

At the present time Konnie Huq is dating the television producer Nick Petterson.

"I'd love to do a travel programme – they're so bland nowadays, it's like they only film them when companies give them good deals.

Konnie Huq's Dilemma: A Brief History Of Time Or Heat Magazine?

Konnie Huq low cut dressIn an interview with the Guardian Konnie Huq tells about her reading habits:
"I've been trying to read Stephen Hawking's A Brief History of Time but it's hard to find the time to make myself concentrate properly. I read Bill Bryson's A Short History of Nearly Everything so thought I'd try Hawking's book to remind myself of my background in science - I did physics, chemistry and maths A-levels.

I'm trying to start reading books that you gain knowledge from in order to challenge myself more. As a rule, I tend to read easy reading/populist-type books, but I don't feel like I'm learning enough. That said, I'm looking forward to reading Mark Frith's book about his time as the editor of Heat magazine."

So should she read A Brief History Of Timeor all about celebs in Heat Magazine? It must be a difficult decision for Konnie!

Konnie Huq Takes The Biscuit

Konnie Huq in the workplace!Konnie Huq has been talking about girls and women in schools and the workplace. She reckons that expectations put on women are now very high and sees this as being because women are perceived as more conscientious than men.

Konnie said, "It's a relatively new phenomenon that we have equality and so women often have to live up to that. Only a couple of generations ago women were not present in the workplace and there was no equality."

According to an American study British women feel they have to work harder than men to gain recognition when working.

But sometimes it's nice to just relax with a cuppa and a biscuit!

Konnie Huq Defends Chantelle

Konnie HuqKonnie Huq has been defending the likes of Chantelle Hayes in Celebs on Sunday magazine. Konnie said,
"When people talk of a 'real career' you think lawyer or teacher. But not everyone wants to do that. So in a way, if your option is stacking shelves or being Chantelle, wouldn’t you take your opportunities when you could? Much in life depends on what you would have done anyway. And as celebrity culture is so skewed towards women’s fashion and appearance, people focus more on these girls. So the blokes from Big Brother fade into oblivion."

And she is right, of course, it's the one opportunity that the likes of Chantelle have to forge some sort of career - and make money. They use their '15 minutes of fame' to full advantage. As for Konnie, she'll be around for much longer.

Konnie Huq Interview

Konnie Huq nipple picThere is an interesting interview on Konnie Huq in today's The Independent.

She talks of her school life:
"We had a 'wormery' and my friend and I were in charge of the 'snailery' with about five snails. I loved drama and was in The Crucible. I was on Blue Peter at 14 with the National Youth Music Theatre – I sang a solo. When I was in the sixth form I presented a cable and satellite programme about music, television and video. I used to do public speaking competitions. There were teams of three. It sounds so middle-class!"

And finishes with her university life:
"I got a 2:1. Our tutors had to recommend high-flying students to the Bank of England; our director of studies recommended me. The two people I met at the Bank were both wearing suits: brown, not grey or black. It turned out to be dress-down day. I remember thinking, 'If this is dress-down day, what are the ordinary days like?' There was an aptitude test; I did it really badly."

Konnie Huq Zoo Time and Her Olympic Ordeal

Konnie Huq presentingFollowing her ordeal with the Olympic torch it's good to see that Konnie Huq has been signed up to present a television series all about zoo animals.

Zoo Days will follow Colchester Zoo as it opens it's doors to the public.

Zoo Days will be on Channel 5 and the 20 episodes will be shown later this year.

And ...

... just in case you missed what Konnie Huq said about carrying the Olympic Torch:
"As I was running with the torch a guy broke out from the crowd and wrestled the torch, or tried to wrestle the torch off me.

I was determined to hang on, it was all a bit of a shock, for a while I was wrestling with it, then they wrestled him to the ground. There were so many people and everyone was shouting 'just keep going'. It was a bit surreal.

I was a bit bashed about but I guess that's par for the course in such a little brawl.

I always said my taking part in the procession didn't mean I condone China in any way. And I think a lot of the torch bearers and the athletes feel the same way.

I did the procession because I believe in the Olympic values, the ideals, I think sport on a global scale is a brilliant thing, it transcends culture, race, money.

The Olympic ethos is a great thing, it's just a shame China has such a terrible track record when it comes to human rights.

I understand the cause completely, but this is the platform on which change can occur, all eyes will be on the Olympics, media from all across the world so if any good can come out of it, that's a really great thing"
