Anna Williamson's Showbiz Peek at the Week: Prince Harry & Big Brother

By
Anna Williamson
It's summer (finally!). And what happens when it's hot? People use it as an excuse to promote their 'wares'. The Celebrity Big Brother girls are stripping off at the mere sniff of a babycham, ex-bra model Rachel Hunter has been parading her impressive assets in next to nothing and even Prince Harry has been letting it all hang out.

While Clarence House had a coronary, our own heart rates danced the Watusi as photographs went global online of everyone's favourite Prince in nothing but his birthday suit and a dodgy 'gap year'-esque man-necklace. Clearly enjoying himself on a trip to the notorious Las Vegas, our rebellious royal has been caught with his pants down, quite literally. Clutching his 'crown jewels' and jostling with a female pal, it has been alleged that a game of 'strip billiards' serves as an explanation - it's all a load of balls if you ask me.

Pah, you wouldn't catch CBB's Julie Goodyear playing such a game. This woman is without doubt the reality show's best signing to date. The West End musical attire (Joseph and His Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat- and Cats-esque Alice band anyone?), the Bet Lynch vocal drawl, the fag-toting guttural cough - this gum-chewing TV soap matriarch is the sole reason I've rejoined this previously ailing series.

This lady is pure reality gold, from speaking to reincarnated seagulls, telling Coleen Nolan to "shut the f**k up", and the bizarre Window Twanky mothering routine with Jasmine Lennard, I beg you public to keep Dame Goodyear and her packet of Rothmans in this series until the end.

And it was with a few choice words and a rebellious drag on a ciggie that the first CBB eviction saw model Jasmine Lennard leave the house for good. Having pretty much insulted every housemate during her 'journey' and having constantly banged on about how she was so much better than the other 'skanks' in the house (those in glass houses...), the troubled young lady double-kissed and swore herself out of the house into the arms of a baying crowd.

Jasmine was a therapist's dream to watch, but with the most controversial housemate gone it has perhaps now opened up the game for another contestant to steal some airtime. My money is on a Julie/Coleen showdown... these women are chomping at the bit for a ruck, and with Julie's 'Jasmine' distraction gone, it's surely only a matter of time.

Sunday was not only the perfect occasion for a BBQ, it was also a beautiful day to be joining Made in Chelsea's Millie Mackintosh for The Sunday Strut, London's first sponsored catwalk show, in aid of The Prince's Trust.

Having just returned from supporting boyfriend Professor Green at V Festival, the makeup artist/reality star was on form as she joined the rest of the strutters at the city's One New Change. Gearing up for her launch into the beauty product market with a boutique eyelash range this autumn, it's refreshing to know that Millie is pretty hands-on when it comes to maximising her opportunities and promoting her endeavours.

Choosing to have 'office days' in-between her Made in Chelsea filming commitments, I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised in the way she operates her 'brand'. She may have been a little abrupt at times to the waiting paparazzi, but I rather liked her.

And of course, on behalf of The Prince's Trust and all who its work benefits, a massive thank you to those who raised money for such a fab cause.
