Thought we had better catch up on the Konnie Huq news.
As most of her admirers no doubt know Konnie has at last posed for one of the men's mags: FHM along with Zoe Salmon. The photos have been promoted as the Battle of Blue Peter for the May cover. So why have FHM done this? This is what they say:
"Why? Basically, because of these two. Konnie Huq and Zoe Salmon. As catalysts to many a burgeoning childhood sexuality, they made Blue Peter a ship worth sailing in: and so, to mark their recent departures and see them off into pastures new, FHM have exclusively shot both for our May 'Battle of Blue Peter' cover.
The photos are very tasteful, no boobs hanging out or g-strings! Though she does pose in silk comisole and matching knickers. For more info see the FHM website.
Moving on, Konnie revealed to Now magazine about how she had a bat in her bra while filming Blue Peter. Konnie commented, "I said stuff like, 'Ooh, it’s very at home down there.' It sounded really wrong!"
Leaving you to dwell on that thought and swiftly moving on to something more serious. It seems that sociologists Elizabeth Gorman of the University of Virginia and Julie Kmec of Washington State University, British and American women think they have to work harder than men.
Konnie has commented on this and agrees that women feel they have something to prove in the workplace. Full story here.
And now spots! Konnie Huq told the Mirror about her favourite treatment for spots. Her advice? "I don’t get acne, but I sometimes get the odd spot and then I use Origins Spot Remover, £9.79. I discovered it when I had a bad spot at work and a make-up lady put it on me. It had gone down loads by the next day."
So there you go.
And finally Konnie is to be a judge, along with the likes of Woody Harrelson, Jon Snow and Monty Don, for the Observer Ethical Awards, which are being supported by the ecological manufacturer, Ecover.
The official release says:
'The search is on to find the UK's most inspirational ethical thinkers, from high-profile campaigners in the public eye to young campaigners who deserve recognition for improving their local environment, the Observer is setting out to reward those pioneering a sustainable future for the country.'
