Bedtime habits

SK, asleep. Happy days.
  • For the last two nights, Sarah Kennedy MBE has been waking up at exactly 2:38am.
  • This is very strange, as her alarm is set for 3:45am.
  • SK has only once ever missed a show due to oversleeping. Somehow she managed to turn off both her alarm clocks in her sleep!
  • Sarah don’t like champagne.
  • Sarah does not have a mobile phone.

    Worst canapes

  • SK hates cheese-and-pineapple-on-sticks.

    As performed by Sarah Kennedy MBE

    Gossip - as seen on TVMy name is Gossip.
    I have no respect for justice.
    I maim without killing.
    I break hearts and ruin lives.
    I am cunning and malicious
    and gather strength with age.
    The more I am quoted, the more I am believed.
    My victims are helpless.
    They cannot protect themselves against me
    because I have no name and no face.
    To track me down is impossible.
    The harder you try, the more elusive I become.
    I am nobody's friend.
    Once I tarnish a reputation, it's never the same.
    I topple governments and wreck marriages.
    I ruin careers and cause sleepless nights,
    heartaches and indigestion.
    I make innocent people cry in their pillows.
    Even my name hisses.
    I am called Gossip.
    I make headlines and headaches.
    Before you repeat a story, ask yourself:
    Is it true? Is it harmless?
    Is it necessary?
    If is isn't, don't repeat it.

  • SK MBE had a very bad day yesterday. First of all, her car ('BOT') got a parking ticket. Then, it got towed away by Ken Livingstone's traffic police! It cost £250 to get it released.
  • Sarah has been invited to appear on the infantile BBC children's TV programme, 'Dick and Dom in Da Bungalow'(!)
    Dick and Dum - idiots

    Save the albatross

  • Sarah Kennedy MBE was here, there and everywhere last weekend.
  • SK says: "Pheasants are daft birds."
  • Ms K's old producer, Mark Simpson, has been relegated to the Steve Wright show.
  • For the first time, Sarah watched Strictly Come Dancing the other day. SK says she'd love to have a go at it next year.
  • Sarah's new washing machine is arriving today (from John Lewis).

    Please support Sarah in trying to save the albatross.

    Albatross: 'Save me, please'

    CORRECTION: Sarah apologises for mistakedly claiming that Natasha Kaplinsky's "toe had falled off". It was in fact, her "toenail".

    She's only gone and done it!

    Rise Ma'amSarah Kennedy got her fully-deserved MBE on Thursday.

    Speaking afterwards, she said: "It's lovely to get it. It's quite undeserved really because it's programmes I love doing and I get paid for."

    At the time, SK threw the letter announcing the honour in the rubbish, mistaking it for a piece of election campaigning! She retrieved if after reflecting that it was on "very expensive paper".

    "I took it out and it was covered in tomato ketchup. I had to sit down I was so shocked," she said.

    Kaplinsky on the breakfast
  • Last Friday, SK left the studio, as per normal, at 7:40am. Normally she gets back to Kennedy Towers for Ken Bruce, but this time she got back at...
    ... 2pm! This was due to water spilt on the roads of London.
  • Also last Friday, Sarah Kennedy MBE went to the Post Office Tower for an ITV birthday bash. Vanessa Feltz and Natasha Kaplinsky ('lost a toe during Celebrity Dancer Programme) were there too. SK's Dearly Beloved is not into the celeb thang, but he loves 'Maggie from Extras' and got talking to her!

  • The grapes go up to one's bikini line.

    SK crushed several grapes
