Like all my other friends and colleagues who attended the Breast Cancer Care Fashion Show on Wednesday evening I wanted to congratulate all the models, especially our lovely Ali K, on their wonderful achievement of appearing in the show after the trauma of what had undoubtedly gone before for each and every one of them.
It was, as it always is, inspirational.
The evening was hosted by Radio 1 DJ Edith Bowman and had guest appearances from many well known TV personalities including Barbara Windsor and Vanessa Feltz, not to mention a heartfelt speech from our own Debbie Greenwood.
There were also performances from Gerri Halliwell and former G4 singing sensation Jonathan Ansell, and it was something he said just prior to his performance of Nessun Dorma that truly touched my heart and brought a tear to my eye.
He explained that the final line of Nessun Dorma in Italian "Vincero, Vincero, Vincero" translates to "I will win, I will win, I will win". How appropriate and inspiring for anyone battling cancer.
For the record, he performed it beautifully.
See you later
Much love Julia xx
