Fame...

The craziest thing: BETRAYAL – aka RICH AGAIN - featured on this Monday’s EastEnders! (11th January 2010). You could have knocked me down with a feather! Fevah, I should say, because that’s how they’d say it in Walford.

EastEnders – for anyone who lives on Mars - is one of the most popular soaps in the UK and has been going for 25 years. It is broadcast four times a week on BBC1, and is repeated on Sundays and has something like 12 million viewers.  

Some of the characters had set up a book club – and BETRAYAL was their book of the week! They all walked in holding a copy – which made me giggle because, oh for goodness sake, I was, practically, on EastEnders! EastEnders! This is the Essex equivalent of sitting in the Queen’s parlour at Buckingham Palace!

One of the girls summarised it as: ‘Hollywood glamour, sex, betrayal and revenge!’ and the camera panned in on the book cover. It was all of ten seconds, and I am humbly aware that they only chose it because the title fitted the plot (one character had betrayed another) not because the scriptwriters were awed by my brilliance.

Oh never mind that! It was an unexpected thrill – like the time I saw Clive Owen trotting towards me with a grin, as I tried to persuade my 4-year old to sit in his buggy (his buggy, not Clive Owen’s...). I am silly and starstruck and really should be working on my edits.... sigh...but thank you for allowing me the moment....Here's the link, although I'm not sure if it will work after this Sunday (technology is not my talent.)
