I’m not sure if it was a coincidence or through word of mouth, but just before my multi-media performance on the John Bishop Show was released on the BBC, I was invited to hula hoop live on the Blue Peter show…

It was so last minute, everything literally happened within a few hours, and that included running from London to Manchester to live TV, whilst beating a tube strike, in true ninja style… BOOM, HOOP, BANG!

You bet I got a Blue Peter badge for that!

Many thanks to everyone at the BBC Bridge House Manchester, it was great fun!

In September 2010 I joined Hoop La La on a trip to Manchester.  We attended the Coronation Street 50th anniversary party, where we performed a custom made act to celebrate the programs heritage, and taught some cast members to hula-hoop.  It was a very fun day spent hula hooping and peeping into the courtyards of the set.
