A Friday night with stars of The Apprentice

24 02 2011

I’ve been a bit quiet on the blog front lately but there’s been so much going on, as per usual I haven’t found time. Anyway, I’m back and promising to be better so here’s my first post for a long while… and this one’s for charity. I’ve got a few charity things coming up over the next few weeks, which I’ll be sure to update you on, but this one involves some famous faces and some red noses.

Comic Relief is only a couple of weeks away and tomorrow I’ll be joining some of the stars of The Apprentice to launch their Comic Relief challenge.

Candidates will be swapping their suits and stilettos for sweats and trainers when they take on a military assault course in support of Red Nose Day 2011. 13 candidates from series six – Alex Epstein, Chris Bates, Christopher Farrell, Dan Harris, Jamie Lester, Joy Stefanicki, Laura Moore, Liz Locke, Melissa Cohen, Paloma Vivanco, Raleigh Addington, Shibby Robati, and Stuart Baggs – will be leaving the relative safety of the boardroom to attempt a three kilometre course, originally designed by the British Special Forces.

To launch their challenge, some of the finalists – steered by my good friend Joy – have decided to come to Birmingham and start raising cash. Joy will be joined by fellow contestants including Liz Locke, Chris Bates, Jamie Lester, Laura Moore and Dan Harris in Malmaison from 1-3pm learning how to make cocktails with my fave Mal barman, Jamie Moss. They will then be taking their new-found skills to my usual hangout, The Chameleon, and will be serving behind the bar between 6-7pm and 8-9pm.

It’s sure to be a good night – there will be plenty of shenanigans as well as important fundraising. Hope to see you down there!
