What a different life I lead here on The Magazine from my former news days, but I must say it is a refreshing change.
So, I packed my bags and hopped on a flight and found myself at Elstree studios. Many major movies have been made there including Star Wars and Elstree is currently the location of major TV shows like Dancing On Ice, Strictly and Big Brother - I even caught a glimpse of the Big Brother House.
So tune in to the Magazine tonight to see all the back stage action - it was literally exclusive access to all areas, makeup, dressing rooms, chatting to the judges etc. I was so thrilled to interview the amazing Torvill and Dean, or T& D as they're known backstage!
I remember so well as a nine-year-old watching them skate The Bolero at the Winter Olympics in Sarajevo thirty years ago. They still look incredible.
It was also lovely to bump into my old pal Christine Bleakley who invited us up to her dressing room for a good girly gossip, including revealing some hints as to when her wedding for Frank Lampard will take place. Tune in tonight to find out if they will actually tie the knot this year.
I've been springing surprises again this week too - as I headed to Jordanstown to meet a young woman called Sophie Hanvey who has overcome so much in her life. Sophie, who suffered a massive bleed on the brain at the age of 13, was nominated by The Child Brain Injury Trust because she is a fantastic role model for other youngsters and their families who've gone through the same trauma.
Finally - we've pulled out all the stops and added a little Oscars glamour to the studio tonight, as we predict just which films will be scooping the coveted golden statues!
Why not join the party - it's rumoured even Angelina Jolie's leg will be there!
