Love Island Lesson 3: Don’t squash yourself – or anybody else #Yewande

in Love Island/Uncategorized

If you started watching Love Island to have a giggle at the inflated muscles, lips and egos of this year’s contestants you were probably just after some lighthearted fun.

You planned to switch on the show and switch off all your faculties and simply enjoy some mindless entertainment.

Unfortunately, it’s all gone a bit wrong.

In fact, you now find yourself cringing before the screen with your hands over your eyes.

The Yewande and Danny situation hooked you in and now you can’t bear to watch it all implode.


Admit it – this year’s cast have got to you, haven’t they?

Love Island Lesson 2: Be your annoying self at all times #Amber

in Love Island

“Pretend that you just woke up – that’ll throw her off! Be sleepy!”

“Yes! And grumpy!”

The above advice was given to Chandler Bing of Friends by Monica and Rachel to help him answer the phone in a way more likely to attract his love interest, Janice.

“Stop naming dwarves!” Chandler shouted – and promptly answered the phone as his flawed but loveable self.

He got the girl.

His approach is one that Love Island straight talker, Amber Gill, would doubtless approve of.


It’s week 2 of the nation’s favourite summer reality TV series and the controversial Geordie is becoming a surprise favourite with fans of the show.

Perhaps, it’s because the love lesson she is teaching the nation is the importance of being yourself…

Love Island Lesson 1: Jealousy is weird and creepy – unless you’re the one feeling it

in Love Island

The parade of pert derrieres and shiny muscles moving in the slowest of slow motion begun last week.

Yes, Love Island is back!

But what love lessons can we learn from this year’s contestants on the ITV hit show?

Throughout the coming weeks An Idol Mind will closely examine the glossy-limbed, hairless love-seekers for tips on that hairiest of subjects: love.

Today, let’s start with the thorny topic of jealousy…

Made in Chelsea: the one where Jamie has a BIG secret

in Made in Chelsea/MIC Series 17

It’s episode 10 of Made in Chelsea series 17 and we’ve been on quite a journey with the new Made in Chelsea cast.

A lot has changed in a few short weeks…

For the once lovelorn Verity Bowditch no longer pines over Chelsea Casanova, James Taylor.

Instead, under Jamie Laing’s tutelage, she has blossomed into a confident member of the clan – and she’s determined to pull her self-deprecating friend, Amelia Mist, into the sunlight with her.

Even if that involves going speed dating with her…


Yes, Amelia remains something of a mystery…

“We need to build our own star,” says Richard Dinan.

The blond dynamo makes this startling announcement to an audience of professionals at the 2019 Business Show at ExCeL.

Perhaps it is not so surprising; the 32 year old entrepreneur is the founder of Applied Fusion Systems, a private manufacturer of nuclear fusion reactors in the UK.

He is also a former cast member of Made in Chelsea

Binky Felstead invites you to the Mother of all Retreats!

Binky Felstead: weightloss exercise and nutrition as a new mum by An Idol Mind.

Binky’s back!

And although magazine shoots can attest to her lean, mean, post-baby body – with a thigh gap that could crack nuts – she is just as nice and normal as in her Made in Chelsea days.

For Alexandra Felstead is sitting before us in a big baggy jumper at the 2019 Women’s Health Live event and she’s about as comfortable and comforting as her knitwear.

She may enjoy exercise but she believes that everything should be in moderation – and she wants mums to be kinder to themselves.

“I am not a fitness expert, I’m just a first time mum trying to do the best she can,” she admits frankly.

Made in Chelsea: the one where James and Rosi’s Chemistry is Weird

in Made in Chelsea/MIC Series 17

It’s episode 6 of series 17 and the latest Made in Chelsea news is that Miles Nazaire can’t quite believe what his friend is telling him:

“Oh my god, why the hell are you going on a date with Rosi?” he exclaims, aghast. “You told me you didn’t like her!”

But for newly annointed player, James Taylor, the fact that Rosi Mai Waldon has asked him out – and has a newly acquired tan – is enough to overlook any of his previous misgivings…


These minimum requirements will doubtless strike hope into the hearts of girls all over the land…

Made in Chelsea: The one where Jamie wins EVERYTHING

in Made in Chelsea/MIC Series 17

“Is his penis golden?” asks Jamie Laing incredulously.

He might well ask. For his nemesis, James Taylor, is certainly having a lot of fun with the ladies.

By episode 4 of our favourite dollop of posh, the Made in Chelsea lothario has dated Verity Bowditch and Eliza Batten at the same time and has now moved on to dating yet another optimistic newbie: Rosi Mai Walden.


“I think he genuinely likes me and doesn’t know how to control himself,” ventures Verity Bowditch.

This is putting quite a positive spin on the fact that James said he’d cheated on her with Eliza because “it’s easy.”

Made in Chelsea Season 17: The one with all the new faces…

in Made in Chelsea/MIC Series 17

A shiny bauble of posh pop culture has floated back onto our screens for its seventeenth series – but has the bubble burst for Made in Chelsea?

The longtime cast members are now reduced to Jamie Laing, Sophie Hermann,  Alex Mytton. Fredrik Ferrier, Mark-Francis Vandelli and Victoria Baker Harber.


The nymphs have (mostly) departed.

And we are currently drowning in a sea of new faces.

Some of us are starting to feel….uncomfortable.

And if you think they’re going to break us into this gently, you’re quite wrong.

The show opens with our Peroxide Prince, Jamie Laing, running after Alex Mytton and Sophie Hermann as they stroll in the sun-dappled filtered alternative reality that is Made in Chelsea.


It’s just like old times. Except it’s not.

BUILDing his Future: What Sammy Did Next

in Made in Chelsea Cast
Sam Thompson star of Celebs Go Dating, Made in Chelsea and Celebrity Big Brother is now a presenter for BUILD LDN.

A slim brown-haired fellow sneaks his head around the door and then ventures into the room, a little bashfully at first.

He’s quieter than you’d expect, polite to a fault, and he’s dressed down in skinnies and trainers.

You nod at him automatically because you’ve met him before.

Well, we all have.

He’s the everyman. He’s the boy next door. The type that mothers adore and eagerly proffer to their daughters.

And here he is now, checking in with the motherly (and fatherly) types in the audience, asking them how they are.

Promising the crowd that we won’t have to wait long until the show begins.

He has the brightest, brightest blue eyes.

He is bursting at the seams with positivity.

He is Sam Thompson.
