Clapperboard 101

Clapperboard 101

My parents gave me a clapperboard for Christmas once. While I appreciate the gift, looking back on it now it really wasn’t great. While it was made of ‘wood’ it had some sort of paper stuck to the front meaning that chalk wouldn’t work but instead just leave a scratch. I can only assume it’s …

I got Starstruck and I’m okay with it.

I’ve met celebrities before. I remember when I was younger my mum won a trip to see the Blue Peter studios in a charity raffle, which involved meeting the current presenters, one of which was Gethin Jones.
